RIGHT-LEANING NEWS SOURCE SQUELCHES OBAMA DOCUMENT FRAUD COMMENT
by Sharon Rondeau
(May 4, 2015) — In an article dated May 3, 2015 and reposted in part at BirtherReport, Eric Owens of The Daily Caller opined that “Birthers” will “Have a FIELD DAY” during the 2016 presidential primary cycle as a result of several candidates whose constitutional qualifications have been called into question.
Among those candidates are Sens. Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz. Other non-declared individuals who may or may not announce their candidacy are Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal and South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley.
“The birthers are at it again,” Owens stated in his third paragraph before going on to describe Swiss philosopher Emmerich de Vattel, author of “The Law of Nations,” as an “obscure European civil servant” and “bureaucrat” “writing in a provincial Swiss town.”
In his article, Owens stated:
Modern-day proponents of Vattel’s “natural-born citizen” definition also claim — with scant evidence — that other prominent founders swore by Vattel’s “natural-born” definition including John Jay, Thomas Jefferson and George Washington.
Below the text of the article on page 2, numerous reader comments appear. On Monday morning at 8:47 EDT, The Post & Email logged in with its Twitter account and left the following comment:
Some excellent research has been done in which the writer actually found references in the Congressional Globe of the reliance placed on Vattel’s work by the Framers: http://www.unslaveamerica.com/usurper-obama/, including on the matter of “allegiance.”
In a July 25, 1787 letter to George Washington, future U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Jay stressed why only a “natural born Citizen,” as opposed to simply “a Citizen” as first suggested by the Framers, should hold the highest office in the land and the “command in chief” of the “american army”: http://teachingamericanhistory.org/library/document/john-jay-to-george-washington/
Also, what about Obama’s fraudulent documents? We don’t really know who he is or where he comes from.
This may be the biggest political crime in U.S. history, and you haven’t reported a word about it: http://mcsoccp.org/joomla/
