Why did Congress do this?
Why have they inserted someone not of pure American status as the CEO of the nation? “Natural Born” was meant in it’s purest Vattel interpretation so that there be no foreign influence on the “most powerful man in the world”. And this was not to do with the US when that was written, because we were nothing but a British colony at that time. It was to define, FOR THE ENTIRE WORLD, what certain terms meant. And it was THE accepted understanding to this group of persons creating this new nation. That there be NO confusion in heart of the guy in charge as to the priority of decisions FOR the specific nation involved.
Further, and I’ve mentioned it before, Ovomit was born a BRITISH citizen. Ignore Hawaii, it could have been hatched in OHIO and it still would have been a Brit.
The facts of Mr. McCain’s birth to U.S. parents in the Panama Canal Zone – and his U.S. citizenship by birth as a result of a subsequent statutory grant – are undisputed. His eligibility for the Presidency as a “natural born citizen” was disputed solely on the legal issue of whether birth outside of the United States to U.S. parents made him a “natural born citizen” or not. Not so in the case of Mr. Obama, whose eligibility is being challenged, at least in part, on allegations of facts not generally accepted and in some cases dismissed by most as just bizarre – for example, that Mr. Obama was born in Kenya rather than in Hawaii. In two of the cases, the plaintiffs contend that Mr. Obama’s birth to a foreign-born father, resulting in dual citizenship at birth, automatically creates divided loyalties and precludes him from being a “natural born Citizen” eligible to serve as President. In the third case, various facts are posited, including Mr. Obama’s birth in Kenya, adoption or acknowledgment as a child by his stepfather in Indonesia, and his travel as a young adult on an Indonesian passport to Pakistan. Legal conclusions are drawn that Mr. Obama either failed to acquire U.S. citizenship at birth or lost U.S. citizenship at some point after birth because of his acquisition of Indonesian citizenship. The challengers then proceed to argue that dual citizenship at birth, loss of U.S. citizenship after birth, or birth outside of the United States would preclude Mr. Obama from being a “natural born citizen.”
Messrs. Donofrio and Wrotnowski posit the following facts about Mr. Obama’s birth to establish his dual citizenship: that his father, Barack Obama Sr., was born in Kenya, which at the time of Mr. Obama Jr.’s birth in 1961 was a British colony; that Mr. Obama Sr. was at that time a British subject and that British nationality law governed not only the nationality of Mr. Obama Sr. but also Mr. Obama Jr., thereby resulting in British citizenship at birth for Mr. Obama Jr. In support of this, Mr. Wrotnowski’s lawsuit refers to one of President-elect Obama’s websites, Fightthesmears.com, which cites FactCheck.org, a nonpartisan, nonprofit “consumer advocate” for voters associated with the Annenberg Public Policy Center of the University of Pennsylvania, stating:
“When Barack Obama Jr. was born on Aug. 4, 1961, in Honolulu, Kenya was a British colony, still part of the United Kingdom’s dwindling empire. As a Kenyan native, Barack Obama Sr. was a British subject whose citizenship status was governed by The British Nationality Act of 1948. That same act governed the status of Obama Sr.’s children. Since Sen. Obama has neither renounced his U.S. citizenship nor sworn an oath of allegiance to Kenya, his Kenyan citizenship automatically expired on Aug. 4, 1982.”
In other words, by citing third-party websites, President-elect Obama may appear to concede that he had dual U.K./U.S. citizenship until Kenyan independence on December 12, 1963, and thereafter Kenyan/U.S. dual citizenship, until his twenty-first birthday.
This means that it is NOT an NBC. But you know what? I wouldn’t give a rat’s rectum if it had been hatched on Mars IF it’s behavior had shown that the USA was it’s first priority. If Preserving and Defending THE CONSTITUTION was of that same level. If it were a dedicated citizen of AMERICA, rather than the world. If it had not proven time after time that it didn’t have the first fucking clue about that root of our nation. If it had not said that it wanted to change the Constitution because of it’s inherent imperfection. Limiting the government like that, how dare they?
MMMPOS!!!!!! It was born a Muslim and raised a Marxist. With the intent of being trained and groomed to destroy the USA. Listen to the way it intones when it speaks. The construction of it’s sentences, and the way it sounds when it reads the TOTUS. The way it mispronounces American terms to this day! And it’s continuous attack ON the very Constitution it claims to have taught at “Hahvahd”. The way it speaks in perfect Arabic and supports Pisslam on so many occasions. Hmmm, kinda incriminating me thinks.
I don’t know, maybe all my military awareness training, at my old clearance level, just makes me paranoid.
Until I remember at my age what life was like before.
