WHERE IS THE INVESTIGATIVE JOURNALISM?

(Mar. 26, 2011) — As a true un-American media mouth-piece that knows little if anything about the United States Constitution, whereas Hannity repeatedly stated that the United States Constitution requires you to be born in the United States to be eligible for the Presidency.
In reality the United States Constitution Under Art 2 sec 1 – The President
No person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty-five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.
Where in the above Constitutional requirement, says that one has to be born in the country? It doesn’t. The requirement is a ‘Natural-Born Citizen’.
Let’s educate Sean Hannity
Benjamin Franklin’s (a signer of our Constitution) letter to Charles W.F. Dumas, December 1775
“I am much obliged by the kind present you have made us of your edition of Vattel. It came to us in good season, when the circumstances of a rising state make it necessary frequently to consult the Law of Nations. Accordingly, that copy which I kept (after depositing one in our own public library here, and send the other to the College of Massachusetts Bay, as you directed) has been continually in the hands of the members of our congress, now sitting, who are much pleased with your notes and preface, and have entertained a high and just esteem for their author”?
The Law of Nations – Vattel in Bk 1 Sec 212, states the following.
§ 212. Citizens and natives.
The citizens are the members of the civil society; bound to this society by certain duties, and subject to its authority, they equally participate in its advantages. The natives, or natural-born citizens, are those born in the country, of parents who are citizens.
The following statement was made by the author of the 14th Amendment.
I find no fault with the introductory clause [S 61 Bill], which is simply declaratory of what is written in the Constitution, that every human being born within the jurisdiction of the United States of parents not owing allegiance to any foreign sovereignty is, in the language of your Constitution itself, a natural born citizen -Rep. John Bingham, framer of the 14th Amendment, before The US House of Representatives ((Cong. Globe, 39th, 1st Sess., 1291, March 9, 1866 )
Or this statement by Supreme Court Chief Justice Waite
The Constitution does not, in words, say who shall be natural-born citizens. Resort must be had elsewhere to ascertain that. At common-law, with the nomenclature of which the framers of the Constitution were familiar, it was never doubted that all children born in a country of parents who were its citizens became themselves, upon their birth, citizens also. These were natives, or natural-born citizens, as distinguished from aliens or foreigners. Some authorities go further and include as citizens children born within the jurisdiction without reference to the citizenship of their parents. As to this class there have been doubts, but never as to the first.
-Chief Justice Waite in Minor v. Happersett (1875)
The 14th Amendment states the following;
1. All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.
Born in the United States but ‘JURISDICTION” is required.
Under Jus Soli, the following is written “The Supreme Court’s first holding on the subject suggested that the court would give a restrictive reading to the phrase, potentially disqualifying significant number of persons born within the physical boundaries of the nation. In Elk v. Wilkins 112 U.S. 94, 5 S.CT. 41, 28 L.ED. 643 (1884), the court ruled that native Indians were not U.S. citizens, even if they later severed their ties with their tribes. The words “subject to the jurisdiction thereof,” the court held, mean “not merely subject in some respect or degree to the jurisdiction of the United States, but completely subject to their political jurisdiction, and owing them direct and immediate allegiance.” Most Indians could not meet the test. “Indians born within the territorial limits of the United States, members of, and owing immediate allegiance to, one of the Indian Tribes, (an alien through dependent power,) although in a geographical sense born in the United States, are no more ‘born in the United States and subject to the jurisdiction thereof,’*** then the children of subjects of any foreign government born within the domain of that government ***. Id. at 102.
Baracka Abdallah Husein Obama stated the following on his campaign web-site;
“When Barack Obama Jr. was born on Aug. 4,1961, in Honolulu, Kenya was a British colony, still part of the United Kingdom’s dwindling empire. As a Kenyan native, Barack Obama Sr. was a British subject whose citizenship status was governed by The British Nationality Act of 1948. That same act governed the status of Obama Sr.‘s children
However, Barack Obama has not proven his claim of being born in the United States. The Obama COLB is not a Birth Certificate. It is, instead, cursory information that a birth occurred. It is superficial, it is not thorough or detailed as the long form that it supports to represent. The fact that the Obama COLB has been proven to be questionable at best and a forgery at the least, and as there are no records per the current Hawaiian Governor backing it up. If there are no records backing up the document, how was the document produced in the first place?
Sean, stop lying to the American people. According to new poll & survey — 91% of Americans doubt Obama is constitutionally eligible! You are only fooling yourself and betraying your country. Learn the facts.
Your failure is the reason that an 18 year Army career Lt. Col. Sits in Leavenworth Prison for standing up and demanding Obama prove his eligibility. Learn about Terry Lakin, and you’ll see why you don’t deserve to be in the same room as him. Or Charles Kerchner, Mario Apuzzo, Theresa Cao, Walter Fitzpatrick, and a host of other REAL GREAT AMERICAN PATRIOTS. Shame on you, Sean; you should hang your head in disgrace.
A real American that has served this country.
