If she’s “naturalized by order of INS” as you say, I don’t know. I haven’t seen that in her bio, only that she was born in SC on 20 January 1972.

As for Cruz, Rubio and Obama one would think they passed the test to join the Panamanian born John McStain as potential candidates for POTUS. DUNNO!

You know, in the next few days when it probably becomes apparent that some Iranian fighter jet pilot shot down a Ukrainian commercial airliner with 176 passengers onboard...the world is going to take a dim view of their claims of self-defense.

It’s only a matter of time before the truth comes out one way or another.

In this latest tit for tat I'd say we came out the winners.

We got their # 1 terror creator.

They got some scorched cement and a civilian airliner with 180 civilians onboard.

Not to mention 47 dead and over 200 injured in a forced propaganda assembly.

147 of the passengers were Iranian or dual citizenship Iranians living in Canada.

Let’s see our four AGMs hit two moving vehicles in the dark packed with high value targets. Their 15 (30 reported by them) ballistic missiles hit the desert, malfunctioned, caused insignificant damage to supporting structures and may have damaged an airplane that couldn’t be moved and likely not ours.

Yeah I put that in the “take your toys and stay home” category.

If one is born in the U.S., you are a citizen of the U.S. Otherwise, why are the Chinese coming over here to have a kid? If a person born in the U.S. is not a citizen, why are pregnant women tn Mexico lining up at the border to come here to give birth? Anchor babies let the parents stay in the U.S. legally, even if the parents are here illegally...

@Raman_Ghavami
A source inside IRGC tells me that since yesterday evening, 56 of IRGC commanders have been arrested by the IRGC’s intelligence organisation. According to the source, knows as Haj Vahid,one of Soleimani’s most trusted in Iraq is missing since the strike on Soleimani.

Interesting if true. Probably just the new boss doing some internal housekeeping in order to make sure he remains the new boss.

Sorry, no. The 14th Amendment was never meant to allow the children of foreign nationals in this country U.S. citizenship. This has been a perverted "interpretation" of the 14th Amendment since SC Justice Brennan's "footnote". See attached articles for history if you're interested.

Under pressure, Iran admits it shot down jetliner by mistake

https://www.wral.com/iran-says-it-un...iner/18879847/

"TEHRAN, Iran — Iran's Revolutionary Guard on Saturday acknowledged that it accidentally shot down the Ukrainian jetliner that crashed earlier this week, killing all 176 aboard, after the government had repeatedly denied Western accusations that it was responsible..."

Just confirms what we all knew.

Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani blamed the shootdown of the plane in part on “threats and bullying” by the United States after the killing of Soleimani. He expressed condolences to families of the victims, and he called for a “full investigation” and the prosecution of those responsible.

"A sad day," Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif tweeted. “Human error at time of crisis caused by US adventurism led to disaster. Our profound regrets, apologies and condolences to our people, to the families of all victims, and to other affected nations.”

Our fault of course, this certainly affirms presidential hopeful Pete Butt Edge Edge's earlier statement regarding US culpability. Personally I am surprised that they fessed up this quickly.

How many more are going to die today in Iran?

Massive demonstrations (and I mean massive, looks the size of the mandatory crowed for Suleimani funeral) have gathered in the streets to demand that Ayatollah Khamenei resign over the downing of a civilian airliner.

And to think it’s all Trumps fault! (Well, except for the Iranian “lieutenant” that pushed the launch button on two SA-15s in Tehran. He owns that!)

Oh and they intentionally “missed” hitting any US targets or personnel with 16 ballistic missiles. Sure you did, even a broken clock is correct at least once a day.

I think the world and more importantly your average Iranian just realized the emperor has no clothes. They missed because their equipment sucks and they’re incompetent and they shot down an airliner shortly after departing one of their airports because they are scared of their own shadow. All their bluster and death to America posturing won’t save face for them on the world stage.

Eggzactly

Rohani’s ‘prophetic’ words a day earlier threatening to shoot down or destroy an American airliner are surly going to come back to bite him in the ass.

“Death to the liars” is not being directed to Trump in Iran.
