The Constitution makes no mention of “native born”

IS THE ENTIRE GOVERNMENT COMPLICIT IN ALLOWING OBAMA TO OCCUPY THE WHITE HOUSE?

by Tim DeJong

Have Obama's supporters rewritten the Constitution, or simply discarded it?

(Jun. 21, 2010) — There is no statement by a framer which equated “native born” citizenship, the phrase Obama II has used to describe his status, with “natural born” citizenship. From John Jay and Dr. David Ramsay, Thomas Jefferson and George Washington, to Breckenridge Long, who exposed Charles Evans Hughes as ineligible when Hughes ran for president against Woodrow Wilson, (because Hughes’s parents were British subjects), anyone claiming jus soli, born on our soil, sufficient for natural born citizenship has a political motive, or has chosen to believe others who do.

Even Senator Patrick Leahy agreed with his political patsy, former federal judge and Homeland Security Secretary, Michael Chertoff in April 2008, when Chertoff said, “My assumption and my understanding is that if you are born of American parents, you are naturally a natural-born American citizen,” Chertoff replied.  “That is mine, too,” said Leahy (from Patrick Leahy’s recently-scrubbed Senate website).

There is a long list of jurists, historians, founders and framers who repeat the commonly-understood definition for “natural born Citizen.” Even our Library of Congress provides annotations to the Constitution explaining that the concept descended from English common law and required natural born subjects to have had two citizen parents and have been born on the soil or abroad.

However, as General Paul Vallely has suggested, we have now a complicit field officer corps in our military, along with our entire legislature and our “independent” judiciary. When Obama’s legal counsel, Bob Bauer, can corrupt a judge, by placing a clerk in his office, specifically Judge David O. Carter in Los Angeles, despite the fact that he is a former Marine officer, we are no longer a representative republic. All the reading recommendations would only confirm what Obama told us himself: “I am a native born citizen of the U.S.” He told us he was born on our soil, but not of citizen parents – the definition of “native born U.S. citizen.” He knew he would not be challenged. We need a stronger challenge either to frighten our current leadership into respecting our Constitution, or we need to replace them all.

The only legislator to ask publicly for verification of Obama’s eligibility, former Georgia Congressman Nathan Deal, who is now running for governor, was accused of ethics charges within weeks of his letter to the White House and resigned from Congress. Deal would have been bankrupted by Obama’s justice department, a department more interested in protecting terrorists than respecting our Constitution.  However, right now Nathan Deal is the only legislator who has demonstrated the integrity we need to lead in a representative republic based upon a foundation of law. No other legislator has been willing to directly ask for the truth (though the Florida congressman who tried to introduce a bill to vet candidates showed a little courage).

If you have any doubts about the meaning of “natural born” citizenship, besides reading any of a dozen Supreme Court cases, e.g., The Venus, Minor v. Happersett, Shanks v. Dupont, Perkins v. Elg, Wong Kim Ark, a framer, Dr. David Ramsay, who served on the ratification convention for the state of South Carolina and was a President of the States United, wrote a “Dissertation on the Manner of Acquiring the Character and Privileges of a Citizen” in 1789. In this eight-page pamphlet, he brilliantly explains why we are citizens and not subjects, and also explains the importance of having been born on the soil of citizen parents, calling it “Birthright citizenship.” His pamphlet demonstrates that the concept preceded the term used by our framers. He also explains the reason the term “residency” was included.

General Vallely has shown what is missing in tea parties and the discreet actions of concerned citizens: leadership. The General has clearly enunciated the state of what was formerly our republic, which every day becomes more controlled by the federal government. He has also demonstrated what he learned in the Command and General Staff school. We need to find a leader behind whom to unite in order to force our government to respect the Constitution, or to force its dissolution.

Our military has shown its willingness to take orders from someone who has declared himself in violation of the eligibility clause for the presidency. The Army doctor, Lt. Col. Lakin, is challenging Obama’s eligibility based on questions about Obama’s place of birth, but a birth certificate from any state in the Union does not make Obama a “natural born Citizen” because of the foreign citizenship of Obama’s father. Unless Lakin has unassailable proof that Obama was born outside the U.S., he has no case, unless he addresses “jus sanguinis,” the parental component of “natural born Citizen.” (The strong requirement for citizenship for presidents is referred to in natural law or law of nations as “jus soli AND jus sanguinis.”)

Regarding birth to citizen parents while serving the country abroad, in 1790, an effort was made to deem the children of military serving overseas “reputed natural born citizens.” The statute was unconstitutional and was replaced in 1795, but it is that statute that was tossed about by the Senate Resolution 511 panel as well as by McCaskill’s earlier bill, S. 2678 in February 2008 to make McCain look eligible. There has never been a statute claiming to make the child of an alien a “natural born Citizen.” It is ridiculous to think that our founders and framers would permit the child of a Royalist parent to become Commander-in-Chief. In 25 attempts to amend that provision, no senator has even gotten both the House and Senate to agree, let alone asked three-quarters of the states to concur.

Associate Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas has been the only justice to tacitly acknowledge that the Supreme Court was “evading” the issue. When Congressman Serrano asked Clarence Thomas if he, who had been born in Puerto Rico, could run for president, Thomas said he could become a Supreme Court justice (meaning no!). That appears to be a tacit jab by Hernandez to show Thomas that the left now interprets the Constitution. Thomas certainly knows.

Every justice, perhaps with the exception of Thomas, should be examined by Congress for misprision, since every justice knows that five chief justices have quoted “born on the soil of citizen parents.” They should all be impeached, and they can be impeached, but it will mean controlling Congress with super-majorities. With rampant election fraud, that is unlikely to occur. We have no audit trail for vote counting and no reason to believe reported vote counts. That is one reason George Soros has funded a group to target the selection of secretaries of state for the “57″ states.

Finally, of course, Governor Jindal of Louisiana is ineligible. It is sad that he hasn’t had the character to say that publicly.

    Thomas Sowell is asking whether tyranny is now here! Let me ask the readers of the Post & Email this. When you have a government that has a deaf ear when it comes to listening to the people of a Republic and Representative form of government….What do you think?

    This is a very informative article Tim. Thanks much for the good info! Many people don’t realize that George Soros is an extremely rich Jew, a Nazi collaborator who claimed he was a Christian to escape the Nazi wrath against the Jews before and during WWII. It’s ironic that so many modern-day Jews voted for and still support the usurper Barack Hussein Obama. The remains of their parents and/or grandparents burned up in Hitler’s ovens are probably trying to roll over in their graves right now. Everything seems upside down these days. We need to get America right side up very soon, or it will just be a footnote in future history.
