WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN “CITIZEN” AND “NATURAL BORN CITIZEN”
by JeanWTPUSA, blogging at We the People USA
(Apr. 30, 2011) — I could have bet anything that the timing was right for Obama to release his Birth Certificate, which, by the way, is already being picked apart by the Birthers. See video here.
But for me and many others I have spoken to over the years, the questions regarding Obama’s “eligibility” had more to do with the fact that Obama does not meet the “Natural Born Citizen” standard of Article II of the Constitution than what hospital he was born at in Hawaii.
If you listen to the MSM, you’ll hear the term “citizen” and “Natural Born Citizen” used interchangeably. What they fail to realize or talk about is that to be NBC, you have to be born on US soil to PARENTS (plural) who are US Citizens. Birthers have suspected that Obama was NOT a NBC all along and now with the release of the long-form, know for sure, that Obama does not meet the NBC requirements to be POTUS. You can read this great synopsis on NBC here, here or here.
But it’s not just the kookie, right wing-fringe that is questioning Obama’s bona fides. Trump may have moved the BC issue into the MSM, but others, like Notre Dame Law Professor Emeritus Charles Rice, have also questioned Obama’s eligibility or lack thereof.
If you really want to look at this issue critically, you have to ask yourself, “Why did Congress go out of its way to vet McCain (who, by the way, I believe was also ineligible), but NOT Obama?” Remember Senate Resolution 511 that Obama co-sponsored and signed? If not, read this.
So in brief, this is what “I” believe or MY TAKE on the latest events.
Jerome Corsi is coming out with a new book, Where’s The Birth Certificate? this May. Currently, it is number one on Amazon.com.
Trump is a left-leaning Democratic supporter as evidenced in his political contributions and past statements regarding his preference for socialized medicine and the like. I believe Trump is a “wolf in sheep’s clothing” who is working in tandem with George Soros and the Obama administration. It’s all a show. It has to be. Why? The timing on this was too perfect. The BC was released to make Trump the frontrunner in the GOP. Trump will never get the GOP nomination and will run as an Independent. He will split the vote and Obama will get re-elected. It’s really so simple a theory that I have a hard time wondering why conservatives who are supporting Trump don’t understand his true motives.
The timing on the BC release is perfect, because it also discredits Jeromi Corsi’s research and it will most certainly downplay an important advertising campaign that will be soon hitting the airwaves regarding Obama’s eligibility. In addition, despite the fact that some journalists are still in relentless pursuit of the truth, the Dems are now targeting constituents in EVERY state to make certain that states drop their “birther bills.” Why? Under many “birther bills” Citizens would have “standing” to challenge any records provided by the candidates in court. Can you say a forensic evaluation of BHO’s BC? In addition, some states are including language that would require presidential candidates to provide proof of his/her parents’ US Citizenship to verify their NBC status/eligibility under Article II. This would be a “fatal” blow to Obama. See the Democratic Governors Association fundraising letter here.
However, with the release of the BC, it should be very interesting to see how this all plays out. Will the conversation shift to the Natural Born Citizenship requirement? It should be a fun ride. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.
