(2) The case is justiciable because - merits (I should win and the natural born clause is "self executing," whatever the hell that means). (3) Minor v. Happersett defines who is an eligible candidate. (4) "The Law of Nations is part of the law of the United States" (only section 212, no mention of section 214). (5) The State Department has doubts Cruz is a citizen. (5) Under Rogers v. Bellei if Cruz had been born before 1934 he wouldn't even have been a citizen. How can he therefore be a natural born citizen? (Perhaps Voletz should also have pointed out that if Cruz's mother had not had a womb he couldn't even have been born.)

An especially incompetent presentation. Groan-worthy.

(And yet, better than anything Orly the Chaleria Taitz has ever defecated into a court document without the assistance of alleged paramour Charles Edward Linck Lincoln, III.)
:like: And well, if it kept him bizzy so he didn't hurt himself or others, rock on. How soon does this get thrown out?

Broward judge tosses case seeking to remove Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz from Florida ballot:
A Broward judge dismissed a case that alleged GOP presidential candidates Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz were ineligible to run for president based on their citizenship.

Judge John Bowman told the plaintiff, Michael Voeltz, that he lacked standing in filing the case seeking to get Rubio and Cruz removed from the Florida March 15 primary ballot.

“The only injury here is no different than anyone else’s,” Bowman said in his ruling in the Broward County courthouse in Fort Lauderdale. “You have the right to vote. … This does ultimately reside in the hands of Congress.”

Lawyers for both — David Di Pietro for Cruz and Gabriela Prado for Rubio — argued in court motions that the candidates met the criteria in the U.S. Constitution to run for president. (Di Pietro, a well-known Republican lawyer in Broward, recently endorsed Donald Trump[*] so he handed off the case to his law partner[/highlight], Nicole Martell, for the hearing Friday.)

* * *

Voeltz works at a car dealership and represented himself. He also named the Republican Party of Florida as a co-defendant in the Broward case.

Bowman, a longtime registered Democrat, took about one minute to issue his ruling. The case drew political interest since Florida’s presidential primary is 10 days away and hundreds of thousands have already voted by mail and at early voting sites. Next week, both Republican and Democratic presidential candidates will be in South Florida for separate debates. The Democratic primary debate will be Wednesday, March 9, at the Kendall Campus of Miami Dade College while the Republican primary debate will be Thursday, March 10, at the University of Miami in Coral Gables.

Rubio spokesman Alex Burgos told reporters at the Broward courthouse after the hearing “this case is 100 percent frivolous.”
A comment at Doc's is reporting that Voeltz voluntarily dismissed w/r/t the state defendants.

The story was mentioned on Miami's Newsradio 610AM, they just said the case was dismissed and that he had tried a similar thing in 2012. Winning that he got his name on the radio if he's a car salesman maybe?

All ya need to do is slip on over to YouTube and watch the sovcit videos. There's one who was claiming up and down that the Sixth Amendment gives him the right to travel. He went on and on and on with his Sixth Amendment knowledge. I'll bet he knew things about the Sixth that you lawyers here never knew. ;)

It is as if birthers aren't even trying to hide their racism.

Well, they certainly aren't hiding their ignorance.
