The Ineligible President
By Good Ole Boy/Jim
The Natural Born Citizen clause in the constitution for US presidents is not as confusing as liberals would have you believe.
Article 2, section 1 of the Constitution states, “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 who shall not attained to the age of thirty-five years, and been fourteen years a resident within the United Sates.”
The framers who were mostly either born in England or of British parents in this country excepted themselves. There were few Natural Born citizens of age at that time. Pelosi and Reid must of used the exemption when they vetted Obama as qualified to be President in the 2008 election. Obama had a British subject as father but the exemption was over about 200 years ago and not applicable to anyone living today.
Precedent has even been set by the Supreme Court in Minor vs Happersett in 1874.
The Chief Judge Waite defined Natural Born Citizen for the majority in this part of the decision.
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. For the purposes of this case it is not necessary to solve these doubts. It is sufficient for everything we have now to consider that all children born of citizen parents within the jurisdiction are themselves citizens. The words “all children” are certainly as comprehensive, when used in this connection, as “all persons,” and if females are included in the last they must be in the first. That they are included in the last is not denied. In fact the whole argument of the plaintiffs proceeds upon that idea.
This renders moot whether Obama was born in the U.S., Kenya, or Timbuktu. His father was a Kenyan, never a US citizen. He is not eligible to be president. Obama even admitted it in the 2004 Keyes-Obama debate for the US senate seat. The video clip was posted on Youtube and has since been scrubbed from the internet. It is no myth, I once posted it on a Politics.com which is now no longer a debate format and all of what was posted is gone.
All of the court cases that have focused on Obama’s eligibility have been dismissed w/o discovery which smacks of conspiracy. Pressure and threats were no doubt applied to judges or they had liberal leanings that tainted their rulings.
The Constitution is nothing to Democrats but the Mainstream media failed miserably in their watch dog role. We now have an Constitutionally ineligible president. The only legal roadblock to a second term for Obama is some states have set vetting guidelines to be met, for placement on their ballot. Watch for the administration to challenge them in court sometime before the next election.
