Skip to comments.McClintock: Obama passed eligibility requirements (throws constitution under bus)
Posted on 07/16/2011 5:14:24 PM PDT by editor-surveyor
A California congressman says voters, Congress and the courts all have cleared Barack Obama's eligibility to be president.
The comments come from U.S. Rep. Tom McClintock, whose e-mail to a constituent with a question about the eligibility issue was forwarded to WND.
He said, "The Constitution is the starting point for determining eligibility to serve as president. The Constitution requires that to be eligible to serve as president an individual must be a natural born citizen of the United States, be at least 35 years old, and have been a permanent resident in the United States for at least 14 years."
McClintock continued, "Currently, a candidate's eligibility under these requirements is vetted by a number of sources, both inside the government and out. First, candidates go through an intensive political vetting process in both the primary and general election – their histories are carefully examined by their political opponents who have a vested interest in uncovering the facts. At the end of the campaigns, the voting public weighs in. Then, when all the votes have been cast and counted, it is up to Congress to certify the results. A final check-and-balance against eligibility irregularities lies with the courts, and ultimately the Supreme Court."

You completely ignore the fact that Obama could not be eligible because of his British citizenship.
That fact will never go away; conflicting allegiance was the sole reason for the NB citizenship clause.
>> “She called the Obama eligibility issue ‘distracting’ and ‘annoying.’ “ <<
That does not place her “with” McClintock, since she has also indicated her disbelief in his eligibility more than once. She is simply such a political pragmatist that she is unwilling to allow the issue to take up her time and space.
Since the rest of us do not aspire to high office, we can allow it.
Oh, COME ON, Tom! While the above looks GREAT on a Constitutional Law Class's blackboard, haven't you forgotten a few things??
Obama's first opponent, Hillary, was probably stymied by what she knew about Obama's past because he may have had the goods about HER past. You forgot to mention MAD (mutually assured destruction), or "detente."
Obama's second opponent was more scared of being called a racist than of being tortured by the Viet Cong for years. You forgot to mention "unless the candidate is a Magic Black person above all reproach or question."
Ah, yes, the voting public weighs in, half of which were voting for his skin color alone. Did you forget to mention that the First Black Candidate, with the full media at his back, would be chosen by the voters because they wanted to feel "cool" by voting for him? Very few Obama voters last time really understood that he was highly suspect as a natural born citizen, or even knew or know what that even means.
The parties and states who need to ratify his eligibility? 49 did it without ANY proof. The one state that had proof, Hawaii, refused to do it. So Nancy Pelosi stepped in, took out the sentence, and signed his eligibility.
And the courts. Oh, the courts. The glorious Supreme Court, who feels that no one has any standing to even QUESTION Obama's eligibility. You expected that if they never looked into it at all, he must be eligible? That was good enough for you? Oy vey, Tom.
ANNENBERG??? The place where Bill Ayers and he first worked together???
Yes, Baraq is an academic leftist, but he also has a "masters degree" in "operations" from the Chicago political mob. They wrote the book on corruption.
I do not think he was necessarily groomed by Soros at first. I think at first we had the Ayers commie groups and then the middle eastern Muslims came on board. I believe that once they knew Obama has some "problems" with his citizenship, they were first OVERJOYED and then cocky. "We can pull this off." And they were right. Ayers LOVES how stupid the American public is.
Education is the key.
Many people have already written exhaustive accounts on education and Marxist worldview infiltration --like the Long March by Kimball and EK Eakman's Coning of the American Mind and, of course, the most important, The Closing of the American Mind by Allan Bloom which gets down to the foundation of ideas and where they originate.
Knowledge is power. People should understand philosophy and why they think as they do. Emotion has to be subservient to the intellect. Marxism puts emotions above it--a postmodernist idea which had roots in Modernism but crushes the thousands of years of tradition of Natural Law Theory (US foundation and Common Sense) and twists human "rights" into something bizarre and irrational which only leads to a type of slavery for everyone. Marxism is the road to serfdom (slavery).
“You completely ignore the fact that Obama could not be eligible because of his British citizenship.”
Does Britan consider him to have British citizenship?
I don’t know that they’ve ever weighed in on it.
That does not place her with McClintock, since she has also indicated her disbelief in his eligibility more than once.
I recall Palin responding, when asked about Trump's quest for Obama's LFBC, something along the lines of, "Yes, let's get it out there for everyone to see."
That statement came closer to outright calling Bammy an ineligible president, than anything I've heard from any other presidential candidate. Unfortunately, for political pragmatism's sake, that's about as close as she could come to that flame without getting burned.
There are more than enough other battles where Palin can easily beat Obama, but the eligibility issue isn't one of them. People must follow where a politician leads, and Palin is wise enough to see that there simply aren't enough troops lined up on that front to win the day.
For many of us (ahem), exhaustive accounts are sometimes not quite as accessible - maybe no money to buy the books, no good libraries, not enough time, not know all the right books, or (ahem) not enough scholarly brain cells. A synopsis or “How to Detect Marxist/godless indoctrination methods for Dummies” or something. Bit by bit.
“There are more than enough other battles where Palin can easily beat Obama, but the eligibility issue isn’t one of them. People must follow where a politician leads, and Palin is wise enough to see that there simply aren’t enough troops lined up on that front to win the day.”
Yep, that’s pretty much exactly what Governor Palin said:
Question: “Do you question his faith and citizenship?”
Response: “I don’t, and those are distractions. What we’re concerned about is the economy. And we’re concerned about the policies coming out of his administration and what he believes in terms of big government or private sector. So, no, the faith, the birth certificate, others can engage in that kind of conversation. It’s distracting. It gets annoying and let’s just stick with what really matters.”
We have witnesses who walked on the moon, and personally dug up and brought home moon rocks for all to see. There was a undeniable chain of evidence.
So...Who has seen or handled any evidence that Obama is a natural born citizen or a citizen at all. The **ONLY** person who did see and handle certifiable evidence was shot through the head the night before he was to testify. Coincidence? I think not.
What we do **KNOW** is that the evidence posted on the Internet are forgeries.
And....Don't give me that highly legally masturbated verbiage of Fukino that clarified nothing.
Remember, please, the warning of Yuri Besmenov. The first people dragged out of their homes an shot were the Useful Idiots.
I love your tenacity in the face of ridicule of the ignorant, and how you slay the naysayers with truth.
Dont you know that rational people have moved on has become one of the true hard hits from our brothers that we see all the time as the continual ‘nothing to see here’ causing the serious divide between all of us conservatives and dividing who is and is not holding dear our Constitution.

I have to be lucky with the time that God has given me to pursue my own interests. It is amazing actually and I understand how government is making it impossible for people to have time to educate themselves. Governments thwart and subvert it actually by deliberate lies, whether in the press, censorship of the press, the DOE controlled textbooks of all public schools written by the sick minds of Bill Ayers-types.
We have taxes so high and regulations so hideous that people have to vegetate in front of the TV just for sanity. That they have absolutely no time for their children—esp. checking what is in there textbooks—It is intentional and most entertainment is for distraction. Like Rome’s “Circuses and Bread”.
Parent’s have been conditioned for 80 years....teachers are good, Trust teachers, schools are good....”Big Brother Says So” — better than parents at educating children (so many of our most creative and brilliant thinkers hardly had contacts with teachers—such as Lincoln).
Our Prussian system of school was set up to teach “mass conformity”....”group think” in 1930s. Most of our Franklins and Twains and Wright Bros. are being destroyed because they “think outside the box” or are drugged now, and labeled as incorrigible. Few can rise through the cracks without the taint of drugs. Can’t have unequal in a Marxist state.
So, yes, I will eventually write some articles.... :) because I have had such a tremendous amount of time to educate myself in so many different areas—except math, although I did in the last decade take classes in Geometry, Algebra I and II and Pre-Calculus and Physics....although the last class ended my exploration of that subject, quickly! I was taking the classes for fun......
Yes, my concept of fun is really different from most people’s but, boy, do I have fun! Knowing that evil has always existed and will always be there, lets me enjoy life at all times, even with all this cr*p going on 24/7. Just the same old story of mankind and that same polemic of “God or Man”. Chambers was right in his book, “Witness”. Dead right.
On top of that, one of the other 4 cases, the WKA case, also did not define NBC. In fact, the ruling showed that Ark, born in the US to parents who were not working for the Chinese Empire, was a citizen at birth. So if that case supported anything, it was more that place of birth is more important than lineage in determining citizenship at birth.
