“IT IS YOU WHO IS LEADING US DOWN THE PATHWAY TO DESTRUCTION”
April 29, 2011
Governor Brewer, you stated to John King during a recent CNN interview that those of us who question the President’s citizenship are leading the country “down the pathway to destruction.” Much more than the questionable birthplace and his possible lack of even basic citizenship, IT IS HIS admitted lack of NATURAL BORN CITIZENSHIP that is a clear violation of our United States Constitution, Article II, Section I, Clause 5. You have sworn to uphold and defend this Constitution but have utterly abandoned this oath on at least two occasions in connection with this issue.
First, as Secretary of State in 2008, you received Presidential Candidate Nomination Forms from both the Republican and Democratic National Committees in August 08 following the respective Conventions. Although the RNC declared their nominated candidates to be “constitutionally qualified”, the DNC form you received DID NOT contain any such declaration. Curiously, Hawaii was the only state to which the DNC did make that declaration. Governor Brewer, you violated your oath to defend Article II, Section I by placing candidates on the ballot who did not even state, nevertheless establish, that they were constitutionally qualified. You need to tell the State of Arizona why you did this as Secretary of State in 2008.
Second, your recent veto of HB2177, which would have gone a long way to preventing what you allowed to occur in 2008 from ever happening again, is a second failure to defend what is said in our US Constitution, being that “No person other than a NATURAL BORN CITIZEN, or a citizen at the time of the adoption of the United States Constitution, shall be eligible for the office of President. You have told the State of Arizona why you vetoed this bill but your explanation contained some misrepresentations, misinterpretations, and perhaps a lack of understanding the real purpose of the bill as well as the constitutional basis of the bill.
Governor, because you do not seem to care whether or not a U.S. President truly qualifies as a NBC, let me explain a little about this and why it is so important. The founding fathers who wrote Art II, Sect. I, Clause 5 were citizens and they were also born in the United States. Yet they wrote, in the grandfather clause highlighted above, that those like themselves who were solely born here as citizens would be NO LONGER ELIGIBLE for the Presidency in the future (after the grandfather clause was expired) unless they could also be determined to be NATURAL BORN CITIZENS. Governor Brewer, therefore one needs to know just what constitutes being a NATURAL BORN CITIZEN (NBC).
For the answer to the latter question, there are many resources to consult as did the founding fathers (i.e., Vattel’s Law of Nations) but let us just look briefly at Senate Resolution 511 signed on April 30, 2008 and which resolved that John McCain was a
NBC because he was born on a military base in the Panama Canal Zone to American citizen parents (plural). This resolution was signed by five Democrats (including Barack Obama!) and one Republican. Barack Obama admittedly was born to a foreign (Kenyan) father and therefore does not meet the parental citizenship NBC test and has never been constitutionally eligible for the Office he currently occupies. Governor Brewer, as I said in the beginning of this letter, the DNC Nomination Form signed and sworn to by Nancy Pelosi on 8-28-08 and accepted by you should have given you your first clue as to this lack of constitutional eligibility as a NBC. Again you need to explain just why it did not alert you and why you placed an ineligible candidate on the ballot and John McCain also needs to explain his role in Senate Resolution 511 as to a quid pro quo done with the Democrats and Obama.
Governor Brewer, it is public officials like yourself, John McCain, all of our Congressmen and Senators, our courts and our corrupt media who are leading the country on a pathway to destruction because of your refusal to defend this requirement of our Constitution regarding Presidential eligibility. The Constitution is being destroyed by your lack of action to defend it.
Disappointed In You,
Editor’s Note: Arizona Governor Janice Brewer vetoed a bill passed by both chambers of the legislature on April 18, 2011.
