(New York) (January 29, 2016) Republican presidential candidate and constitutional scholar/litigator Andy Martin will hold a news conference at the Capital Hilton to open the Ted Cruz Birther Summit/National Conversation. The three-day Summit/Conversation will explore questions that have been raised about Cruz’ Canadian birth and eligibility to serve as president.
“The term ‘Birther’ was originally intended by the media to carry a pejorative connotation as they sought to insulate then presidential candidate Barack Obama from questions about his family history,” Andy says. “But I accept the word ‘Birther’ as shorthand for an expression of concern involving constitutional presidential eligibility in general. I had absolutely no idea when I began researching Barack Obama’s family background twelve years ago that more than a decade later I would be revisiting the same issues for a Republican presidential candidate.
“The Ted Cruz Birther Summit/National Conversation will explore the constitutional issues of Cruz’ presidential eligibility in some detail. Although Senator Cruz was invited to cooperate and send someone on his behalf if he wished to do so, he has not responded or replied to our requests for documents.
“Ironically, many in the liberal media support Cruz’s point of view that he is eligible. The liberal media take a ‘liberal’ view of constitutional interpretation. Conservatives within Cruz’ own base, on the other hand, manifest the most concern about whether Cruz satisfies the constitutional mandate of being a Natural Born Citizen. One Poll claimed that more than a third (36%) of Republicans have some question as to Cruz’ eligibility (please see link  below).
“While I previously raised and addressed almost all of the issues in the context of Barack Hussein Obama’s candidacy, see group link  below, and expressed my expert opinions at that time, I am taking a fresh look at the Natural Born Citizen question. Other law professors have also expressed their views, see group link  below.
“In order to permit opportunities for the broadest possible participation and discussion we are going to conduct an evening session on Friday the 29th, an afternoon session on Saturday the 30th and a morning session on Sunday the 31st. I have reserved a suite at the Capital Hilton so we will be holding our meeting in the shadow of the White House two blocks away. Maybe President Obama will stroll over and give us his views.
“People who have read my work on Obama over the past twelve years know that when I don my candidate’s ‘hat’ I express my own partisan views. But when, as in the Summit/National Conservation, I undertake to conduct a scholarly discussion, I try to be scrupulously fair and impartial.
“Iowa caucus attendees will be paying close attention to our proceedings. Within hours after we disperse, on Monday they will be called on to express their presidential preferences. In a close Iowa race, our discussions and reporting from Washington could make a decisive difference.”
Andy will also be researching and addressing other national international issues while he is in Washington as well as interviewing potential interns who may want to join his campaign.
Andy can be reached through the hotel switchboard (202) 393-1000 or through his cell phone (917) 664-9329.
