(Jan. 8, 2021) — The Democrat Party is claiming that it will have control of the now 50-50 Senate due to the “tie-breaker” and President of the Senate being Vice-President-Elect Kamala Harris. The only problem is that Harris is not constitutionally-eligible to be vice president or president.
To hold the office of vice-president or president of the United States, one must, according to the U.S. Constitution, be a NATURAL BORN AMERICAN CITIZEN. This requirement is set forth in Article 2, Section 1, Clause 5 of the Constitution:
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.
The 12th Amendment also is applicable and, in part, reads as follows:
No person constitutionally ineligible to the office of President shall be eligible to that of Vice-President of the United States.
Although I am not a lawyer or a constitutional scholar, permit me to try to make this matter clear for you. The Constitution does not say one must be a “citizen” to run for or become elected vice-president or president. It says “NATURAL BORN CITIZEN.” To make it even more clear, it is helpful to point out that our president or vice-president can NOT be a native born citizen. NOT a naturalized citizen. NOT a dual (or multiple) citizen. And, NOT an anchor-baby citizen.
Many who are constitutional scholars define NATURAL BORN AMERICAN CITIZEN as being a person born on United States soil to parents both of whom were U.S. citizens at the time of the child’s birth. This is what is implied and meant by “natural born,” i.e. not spelled out anywhere in the handwritten laws of man. Instead, it is the “law” of nature.
Our country’s 44th so-called “president,” Barack HUSSEIN Obama, was NOT a natural born American citizen. But wasn’t he a law professor or constitutional scholar at one time? Oh, well! Then, there is Supreme Court Chief Justice John G. Roberts, Jr. Didn’t he swear in Obama to the presidency in 2009 and again in 2013, all the while knowing that Obama was constitutionally ineligible? In fact, I suspect that Roberts knew that Obama was a CIA and Deep State-sponsored Manchurian Candidate who had multiple citizenship and conceivably could pose a threat or danger to our American way of life and republic. To make matters worse if that’s possible, the high court, presided over by Chief Justice Roberts, has refused to hear any litigants’ cases which might necessitate defining or re-affirming the widely-accepted meaning of “natural born citizen.” In fact, Associate Justice Clarence Thomas once said that the high court was “EVADING” the issue! In my view, there could be nothing more relevant to our Constitution and the Supreme Court’s role of interpreting the law than resolving the controversy surrounding the meaning and applicability of NATURAL BORN CITIZEN. I believe it is a matter of national security.
This brings us to the issue of the constitutional eligibility of vice-president-elect Senator Kamala Harris. It is true that Senator Harris was born in Oakland, California. However, her father, Donald J. Harris, was a Jamaican citizen at the time, and her mother, Shyamala Gopalan, was a citizen of the country of India at the time. Whether or not either or both of the parents ever became American citizens (naturalized), or when, is not clear from what I have read. Nevertheless, the fact is that Senator Harris’s parents were NOT citizens of the United States when she was born, and this, according to many legal experts, disqualifies her from ever becoming vice-president or president. And, it obviously prevents her from becoming the presiding officer and president of the U.S. Senate. So much for the Democrat Party having control of the Senate.
In conclusion, our country already has had one constitutionally-ineligible “president” in modern times. The extremely negative effects of it on our society are still being felt, and that’s putting it mildly. That is what our wise framers were concerned about when they mandated the natural born citizen requirement. Now, however, it looks as if we may be having another constitutionally-unqualified holder of our country’s highest offices. Another word for such office holder is USURPER. Unfortunately, it is beginning to look as if ANYBODY FROM ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD WITH ANY FOREIGN PARENTS AND HAVING ANY FOREIGN OR ANTI-AMERICAN WORLD VIEWS AND PHILOSOPHIES CAN BECOME VICE-PRESIDENT OR PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES! So, who among us will respect our framers’ Constitution, be dedicated to the preservation of our American way of life, and stand up bravely and patriotically to do the right thing before it really might be TOO LATE THIS TIME? We know who it won’t be, don’t we?! It won’t be Chief Justice Roberts, Barack Hussein Obama, Kamala Harris, or others in the radical left Deep State like them.
