(Feb. 11, 2020) — Democrat presidential candidate and entrepreneur Andrew Yang suspended his presidential campaign Tuesday night while awaiting the results of the New Hampshire primary, multiple sources reported.

As The Post & Email’s Joseph DeMaio wrote in August, questions exist regarding Yang’s constitutional eligibility to serve as president and commander-in-chief resulting from his birth in the State of New York to two legal residents who likely never became U.S. citizens.

While many argue that a birth anywhere in the United States is sufficient to qualify for the U.S. Constitution’s “natural born Citizen” presidential requirement, some scholars believe that the Founders believed the term to mean, “born in the United States to citizen parents” in order to avoid any chance of foreign allegiance.

Other current and former 2020 Democrat presidential candidates who may not meet the strictest interpretation of the term of art include U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris, whose parents did not reside in the U.S. long enough to have been naturalized at the time of her birth in 1964; U.S. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, who was born in American Samoa to U.S.-citizen parents but might not have been granted automatic U.S. citizenship; and Pete Buttigieg, whose father reportedly naturalized three years before his son was born, a claim not yet confirmed.

Harris withdrew from the race in December, but Gabbard and Buttigieg remain candidates as of this writing.

    I would question any of the Democrat “hopefuls” as far as their allegiances/loyalties. Remember 44 dems drafted a bill that would change the country without recourse, never to return again to its former anything. Bail reform is another that will have such an impact. THE NEW WAY FORWARD ACT

    Ten years ago I was at a Walmart in NY State and was conversing with the ophthalmologist. She was also a psychiatry/psychology professional, it turns out, and worked up at Dannemora Prison. She was being asked to perform evaluations on certain inmates that were up for release under a “new” program. She said that of all the people released, none were, in her view, FIT for release. All had been violent criminals, without a hint of remorse.

    Of course, I spread the word, and of course…no one thought it was an issue.

    What I think is obfuscating in all of these instances of apathy is the fact that there are so many manipulations of the system that people are not sure what to think of anything.

    So, while the actual release of these people into local, unsuspecting, communities was the palpable manifestation. The actual danger started long ago, with frivolous legislation. Politics became a sleeping pill.

    I mean, the Obama’s not only stole the country from us in the States. They became wildly (and sickeningly) popular outside of the country, and spread venom everywhere. Something that makes me want to vomit each time I think of it.

    People in Eastern Europe are aware that Obama was in office, and watched, when Crimea was invaded…yet, somehow they put President Trump together with that. It is the strangest twist in logic, and something that I’ve explained tens of times.

    Keep going after these people…the damage that can be done is unfathomable.
