Common Sense 2015

ThomasPaine

The hypocrisy of the Conservatives is amazing. For years they have berated, belittled, and ridiculed those that sought Obama bona fides be investigated. Unless as a conservative ostrich with your head in the sand, you know this is a fact. The likes of the Republican establishment have all but handed Obama everything he desires even if it goes against the United States Constitution or the will of the people. The Republicans were voted into majority the last election to stop the illegal act known as Obamacare. In mere weeks they folded, abdicated their campaign pledges, their sworn duty to uphold the law and not only caved, but surrendered the nation to a tyrant.

The Tea Party trolls and the Obama enablers will hail this as a ‘birther’ argument vs. what is really is; a Constitutional requirement. As the United States Constitution is a social contract between the governed and the government.

John Boehner has proven what a worthless POS he is and what his leadership consists of, nothing but a whinny ass.

But fear not the Republicans have worked out the plan with the Democrats to completely ruin this country after the 2016 election.  Read on till the end, and you will be how.

Hillary will not be the candidate, as her baggage will be dragged from here to eternity and everything from Vince Foster, Travelgate, the vast right wing conspiracy, bimbogate, Benghazi will be brought up in a never ending barrage to remind folks of the unethical, I’m above the law, the Clintons think they are. What difference does it make? Ask the widow of Ambassador Stevens or the others murdered at Benghazi, or better yet ask Stevens himself. Oh wait you can’t, but it might matter to him.

The Republican leadership has decided that it’s their turn to promote an ineligible candidate, just to prove that any party can get away with it.

The issue here is that there is ‘requirements’ for the Office of the Presidency. What are these?

You might want to investigate the United States Constitution, Article 2.

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.

At no point, even after numerous attempts the above requirements have never been altered or amended.  These attempts have been documented on numerous sites and need not be listed here.

Currently the Naturalization Act of 1790 is being peddled as authorities hope for the meaning of ‘natural born citizen’. But they fail as they misinterpret the meaning of ‘citizens’ to mean either or, which is not the case.

So, let me get this straight, the 1790 Naturalization Act clearly states: “children of citizens of the United States, that may be born beyond the sea, or out of the limits of the United States, shall be considered as natural-born citizens.”

How does a Cuban national equate to a US Citizen when the 1790 act clearly states ‘citizen’s (plural)? Even with a US mother, that does not meet the standard of a Natural Born Citizen, which the founders knew as ‘born in country to CITIZEN Parents (plural) or even as the United States Supreme Court stated in Minor vs Happersett.

The Constitution does not, in words, say who shall be natural-born citizens. Resort must be had elsewhere to ascertain that. At common-law, with the nomenclature of which the framers of the Constitution were familiar, it was never doubted that all children born in a country of parents who were its citizens became themselves, upon their birth, citizens also. These were natives, or natural-born citizens, as distinguished from aliens or foreigners. Some authorities go further and include as citizens children born within the jurisdiction without reference to the citizenship of their parents. As to this class there have been doubts, but never as to the first.

-Chief Justice Waite in Minor v. Happersett (1875)

Now you have the same folks saying the Supreme Court has never ruled on what a ‘Natural Born Citizen’ is. Really, what not look at the numerous decisions where they have stated what it is. Why does the United States Supreme Court have to rule on what it has already stated in several cases? But facts ignored are still facts. I don’t have to be appointed to SCOTUS to be able to read their decisions.

Those who somehow believe the 14th Amendment “proves their case” should be told that Congressman John Bingham—who authored that amendment—said on the floor of the House of Representatives in 1862, “All from other lands, who by the terms of laws and a compliance with their provisions become naturalized, are adopted citizens of the United States; all other persons born within the Republic, of parents owing allegiance to no other sovereignty [italics added], are natural born citizens.” Read that again and let it sink in. In 1862, the members of Congress understood that a natural born citizen was someone born on U.S. soil to two U.S. citizen parents.

In 1866 Bingham stated, “Every human being born within the jurisdiction of the United States of parents not owing allegiance to any foreign sovereignty is, in the language of your Constitution itself, a natural born citizen.”

In the 1875 U.S. Supreme Court case Minor v. Happersett, Chief Justice Morrison Waite wrote, “The Constitution does not, in words, say who shall be natural-born citizens. Resort must be had elsewhere to ascertain that. At common-law, with the nomenclature of which the framers of the Constitution were familiar, it was never doubted that all children born in a country of parents who were its citizens [italics added] became themselves, upon their birth, citizens also. These were natives, or natural-born citizens, as distinguished from aliens or foreigners. Some authorities go further and include as citizens children born within the jurisdiction without reference to the citizenship of their parents. As to this class there have been doubts, but never as to the first.” That is, there was agreement by all legal scholars in 1885 that the term natural born citizen meant “born in the United States to two U.S.-citizen parents.”

Maybe I should post all the relevant cases starting in 1812 with The Venus, where John Jay United States Supreme Court Justice stated the following. (Remember it was John Jay that wrote to George Washington about the requirement of a Natural Born Citizen, so I think the person that wrote it, who was also our first Supreme Court Justice, knew what he was talking about.) or little did know that John Jay (our first United States Supreme Court justice) also wrote the following in the New York State Ratification of the United States Constitution,  (Ratification of the Constitution by the State of New York, July 26, 1788. New York was the eleventh state to do so. The assent of Virginia and of New York was seen as essential to the success of the Constitution, and though they were tenth and eleventh to ratify, it is generally agreed that until they both ratified, succes was in doubt. New York’s ratification message is the longest by far, and includes a declaration of rights and many suggested changes to the Constitution. The following text is taken from the Library of Congress’s copy of Elliot’s Debates.)

That no persons, except natural-born citizens, or such as were citizens on or before the 4th day of July, 1776, or such as held commissions under the United States during the war, and have at any time since the 4th day of July, 1776, become citizens of one or other of the United States, and who shall be freeholders, shall be eligible to the places of President, Vice-President, or members of either house of the Congress of the United States.

The Venus 1812

Vattel, who, though not very full to this point, is more explicit and more satisfactory on it than any other whose work has fallen into my hands, says

“The citizens are the members of the civil society; bound to this society by certain duties, and subject to its authority, they equally participate in its advantages. The natives or indigenes are those born in the country of parents who are citizens. Society not being able to subsist and to perpetuate itself but by the children of the citizens, those children naturally follow the condition of their fathers, and succeed to all their rights.”

“The inhabitants, as distinguished from citizens, are strangers who are permitted to settle and stay in the country. Bound by their residence to the society, they are subject to the laws of the state while they reside there, and they are obliged to defend it because it grants.

Children follow the condition of their father.

Ted Cruz qualifies as a Senator, but he’s not eligible for the Presidency.

Sad thing is Cruz’s staffers refuse to respond to inquiries for information about the CRBA application.

How about this

Section 301 as Effective on December 24, 1952: When enacted in 1952, section 301 required a U.S. citizen married to an alien to have been physically present in the United States for ten years, including five after reaching the age of fourteen, to transmit citizenship to foreign-born children. The ten-year transmission requirement remained in effect from 12:01 a.m. EDT December 24, 1952, through midnight November 13, 1986, and still is applicable to persons born during that period. As originally enacted, section 301(a)(7) stated: Section 301. (a) The following shall be nationals and citizens of the United States at birth: (7) a person born outside the geographical limits of the United States and its outlying possessions of parents one of whom is an alien, and the other a citizen of the United States who, prior to the birth of such person, was physically present in the United States or its outlying possessions for a period or periods totaling not less than ten years, at least five of which were after attaining the age of fourteen years: Provided, That any periods of honorable service in the Armed Forces of the United States by such citizen parent may be included in computing the physical presence requirements of this paragraph.”

CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT TO ALLOW FOREIGN-BORN CITIZENS TO BE PRESIDENT

HEARING BEFORE THE SUBCOMMITTEE ON THE CONSTITUTION OF THE COMMITTEE ON THE JUDICIARY

HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES

ONE HUNDRED SIXTH CONGRESS

SECOND SESSION

ON

H.J.Res. 88

JULY 24, 2000

“The natural-born citizenship requirement is unjust and discriminatory. It is inevitable that one day soon a candidate will rise in America who was not born in this country that the American people would like to be President of the United States. Let’s amend the Constitution now so that all children who grow up in America can dream of one day becoming President. Let’s bring hope of equality in citizenship to all the children who are raised in America.”

http://commdocs.house.gov/committees/judiciary/hju67306.000/hju67306_0.HTM

Note the “was not born in this country” part…

Same with Marco Rubio, he was born in 1971 to parents from Cuba, who never naturalized till 1974, after Marco was born, again born to foreign parents.

Again, Bobby Jindal born in the US, but to foreign parents.

The game plan is for both the Republicans and their Democrat trolls to push the ineligible candidates and to finally have the Supreme Court rule on what they have already stated, they are avoiding the issue. Hence the Republican candidate that says all the right thing’s, is ultimately disqualified and the Democrat long shot, Elizabeth Warren (Obama II) is paraded into the White House. Not only as progressive as Obama, controlled by the progressives, but they finally have a female in the White House to usher in the collapse of the United States.

Think this is crazy?

For years, the media have claimed that Obama is a natural born citizen BECAUSE he was “born” in Hawaii. They never said, well even if he was born in Kenya he’s still a Natural Born Citizen. It would have made the Birther argument trivial in nature. But that’s no longer the case. Now we know Cruz was born elsewhere, and now we’re being told that it still doesn’t matter.

What else will not matter, the First Amendment, the Second Amendment?

You decide, they are playing you for the fool and giving away the bank and future to illegal’s and you sit and can’t even figure out what simple words mean that were fully understood 230 years ago as common sense.

 Common Sense 2015 – Tea Party Nation

I was going to include the following in the original post.

The following is from case law on Citizenship.

Immigration and Citizenship: Process and Policy fourth edition
Under Jus Soli, the following is written “The Supreme Court’s first holding on the sublect suggested that the court would give a restrictive reading to the phrase, potentially disqualifing significant number of persons born within the physical boundries of the nation. In Elk v. Wilkins 112 U.S. 94, 5 S.CT. 41, 28 L.ED. 643 (1884), the court ruled that native Indians were not U.S. citizens, even if they later severed their ties with their tribes. The words “subject to the jurisdiction thereof,” the court held, mean “not merely subjct in some respect or degree to the jurisdiction of the United States, but completely subject to their political jurisdiction, and owing them direct and immediate allegiange.” Most Indians could not meet the test. “Indians born within the territorial limits of the United States, members of, and owing immediate allegiance to, one of the Indian Tribes, (an alien through dependent power,) although in a geographical sense born in the United States, are no more ‘born in the United States and subject to the jurisdiction thereof,’*** then the children of subjects of any foreign government born within the domain of that government ***. Id. at 102.
It continues that Congress eventually passed legislation with the ‘Allotment Act of 1887, that conferred citizenship on many Indians.

The fact remains, the Court held, complete and sole Jurisdiction.

Title 8 and the 14th Amendment both state;  All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside.

So explain how “not merely subject in some respect or degree to the jurisdiction of the United States, but completely subject to their political jurisdiction, and owing them direct and immediate allegiance.”

In 1866, Sen. Jacob Howard succinctly spelled out this intent of the 14th Amendment by stating:

Every person born within the limits of the United States, and subject to their jurisdiction, is by virtue of natural law and national law a citizen of the United States. This will not, of course, include persons born in the United States who are foreigners, aliens, who belong to the families of ambassadors or foreign ministers accredited to the Government of the United States, but will include every other class of persons. It settles the great question of citizenship and removes all doubt as to what persons are or are not citizens of the United States….

This understanding was reaffirmed by Senator Edward Cowan, who stated:

[A foreigner in the United States] has a right to the protection of the laws; but he is not a citizen in the ordinary acceptance of the word…

Therefore again, children born to foreign parents was never the intent.

Vanderbilt Professor: We Knew So Little About Obama’s Background; Not Native-Born!?

 

Black Vanderbilt Professor: We Knew So Little 
About Obama’s Background; Not Native-Born!?

Professor Carol Swain doesn’t hold back on her thoughts about Obama. Professor Swain basically says Obama is destroying America noting we elected someone that we knew so little about his background.

Video: Sheriff Joe Arpaio Speaks; Obama’s Forged Fraudulent Government Document Is Violation Of Law

Sheriff Joe Arpaio gave an interview with Pete Santilli and discussed immigration and the ongoing Obama identity document fraud investigation. Sheriff Arpaio says he knows in his own heart what the real Obama story is. And, they’re getting pretty close to a conclusion. He also addresses what would happen if Obama is found ineligible.

More Sheriff Joe Arpaio Video: Obama’s Forged Birth Certificate & Selective Service Registration

Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio says he will get to the bottom of Obama’s forged birth certificate. He unloads on Congress and the news media for their cover-up of Obama’s forged documents. Sheriff Arpaio implores people to contact their congressperson pointing out that if anyone else used a fraudulent government document they’d be in jail.

The Sheriff says there’s no doubt in his mind the birth certificate is a forgery. The video is related to this earlier one.

Fraud-in-Chief has lost his sanity

 

Really;

Here is a list of Obama scandals that are not phony;

President Obama claims that Republicans are busy probing “phony scandals.” But the sheer number of scandals suggests that misbehavior, abuse of power, and possibly corruption are not something being dreamed up by the GOP, but a defining characteristic of the Obama administration.

Here is a full list of the administration’s most egregious scandals. The ones we know about, at least. I’ve added four since the last time we ran the list – an increase of 20 percent!

1. IRS targets Obama’s enemies: The IRS targeted conservative and pro-Israel groups prior to the 2012 election. Questions are being raised about why this occurred, who ordered it, whether there was any White House involvement and whether there was an initial effort to hide who knew about the targeting and when.

2. Benghazi: This is actually three scandals in one:

  • The failure of administration to protect the Benghazi mission.
  • The changes made to the talking points in order to suggest the attack was motivated by an anti-Muslim video
  • The refusal of the White House to say what President Obama did the night of the attack

3. Watching the AP: The Justice Department performed a massive cull of Associated Press reporters’ phone records as part of a leak investigation.

4. Rosengate: The Justice Department suggested that Fox News reporter James Rosen is a criminal for reporting about classified information and subsequently monitored his phones and emails.

5. Potential Holder perjury I: Attorney General Eric Holder told Congress he had never been associated with “potential prosecution” of a journalist for perjury when in fact he signed the affidavit that termed Rosen a potential criminal.

6. The ATF “Fast and Furious” scheme: Allowed weapons from the U.S. to “walk” across the border into the hands of Mexican drug dealers. The ATF lost track of hundreds of firearms, many of which were used in crimes, including the December 2010 killing of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry.

7. Potential Holder Perjury II: Holder told Congress in May 2011 that he had just recently heard about the Fast and Furious gun walking scheme when there is evidence he may have known much earlier.

8. Sebelius demands payment: HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius solicited donations from companies HHS might regulate. The money would be used to help her sign up uninsured Americans for ObamaCare.

9. The Pigford scandal: An Agriculture Department effort that started as an attempt to compensate black farmers who had been discriminated against by the agency but evolved into a gravy train delivering several billion dollars in cash to thousands of additional minority and female farmers who probably didn’t face discrimination.

10. GSA gone wild: The General Services Administration in 2010 held an $823,000 training conference in Las Vegas, featuring a clown and a mind readers. Resulted in the resignation of the GSA administrator.

11. Veterans Affairs in Disney World: The agency wasted more than $6 million on two conferences in Orlando. An assistant secretary was fired.

12. Sebelius violates the Hatch Act: A U.S. special counsel determined that Sebelius violated the Hatch Act when she made “extemporaneous partisan remarks” during a speech in her official capacity last year. During the remarks, Sebelius called for the election of the Democratic candidate for governor of North Carolina.

13. Solyndra: Republicans charged the Obama administration funded and promoted its poster boy for green energy despite warning signs the company was headed for bankruptcy. The administration also allegedly pressed Solyndra to delay layoff announcements until after the 2010 midterm elections.

14. AKA Lisa Jackson: Former EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson used the name “Richard Windsor” when corresponding by email with other government officials, drawing charges she was trying to evade scrutiny.

15. The New Black Panthers: The Justice Department was accused of using a racial double standard in failing to pursue a voter intimidation case against Black Panthers who appeared to be menacing voters at a polling place in 2008 in Philadelphia.

16. Waging war all by myself: Obama may have violated the Constitution and both the letter and the spirit of the War Powers Resolution by attacking Libya without Congressional approval.

17. Biden bullies the press: Vice President Biden’s office has repeatedly interfered with coverage, including forcing a reporter to wait in a closet, making a reporter delete photos, and editing pool reports.

18. AKPD not A-OK: The administration paid millions to the former firm of then-White House adviser David Axelrod, AKPD Message and Media, to promote passage of Obamacare. Some questioned whether the firm was hired to help pay Axelrod $2 million AKPD owed him.

19. Sestak, we’ll take care of you: Former White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel used Bill Clinton as an intermediary to probe whether former Rep. Joe Sestak (D-Pa.) would accept a prominent, unpaid White House advisory position in exchange for dropping out of the 2010 primary against former Sen. Arlen Specter (D-Pa.).

20. I’ll pass my own laws: Obama has repeatedly been accused of making end runs around Congress by deciding which laws to enforce, including the decision not to deport illegal immigrants who may have been allowed to stay in the United States had Congress passed the “Dream Act.”

21. The hacking of Sharyl Attkisson’s computer: It’s not clear who hacked the CBS reporter’s computer as she investigated the Benghazi scandal, but the Obama administration and its allies had both the motive and the means to do it.

22. An American Political Prisoner: The sudden decision to arrest Nakoula Basseley Nakoula on unrelated charges after protests in the Arab world over his anti-Muslim video is an extraordinarily suspicious coincidence. “We’re going to go out and we’re going to prosecute the person that made that video,” Hillary Clinton allegedly told the father of one of the ex-SEALs killed in Banghazi.

23. Get rid of inconvenient IGs: Corporation for National and Community Service Inspector General Gerald Walpin was fired in 2009 as he fought wasteful spending and investigated a friend of Obama’s, Sacramento Mayor and former NBA player Kevin Johnson. The White House says Walpin was incompetent.

24. Influence peddling: An investigation is underway of Alejandro Mayorkas, director of the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, who has been nominated by Obama for the number two post at the Department of Homeland Security. Mayorkas may have used his position to unfairly obtain U.S. visas for foreign investors in company run by Hillary Clinton’s brother, Anthony Rodman.
