Romney could do far worse than choosing Louisiana Gov. Jindal
Bayoubuzz.com ^ | 06/13/2012 | Mike Bayham

Posted on 06/13/2012 5:11:32 PM PDT by Marketfly1

Conservatives attending a recent regional conference in Chicago voiced their support in a straw poll for Florida US Senator Marco Rubio’s selection for the bottom-half of the 2012 GOP ticket, which is hardly surprising.

Rubio is the closest thing the Republican Party has to a “rock star” politician. The young Cuban-American is for the GOP in 2012 what Barack Obama was to the Democratic Party after 2004.

Except for the fact that jindal and Rubio are not eligible for that office because they are not natural Born Citizens. One or both parents were not U.S. citizens when Jindal and Rubio were born.

Republican rock stars or Barack Obama, I will scream from the highest mountain every chance I get, to make sure that from now on, all presidents and vice presidents meet the eligibility requirements set down in our constitution in Article II (president) and Amendment 12 (vice president).

Original intent of the framers and subsequent Supreme Court decisions agree that you must be born on U.S. soil by TWO citizen parents. Anyone who says otherwise doesn't know what they are talking about.

I am with you on this. But, the SC does not care and is willing to gut the Constitution so they can glad hand with the President.

Jindal was responsible for the Louisiana Purchase. He is another politician who puts on the social conservative mask and is a smooth talker while his record on the fiscal side is awful. He knows to press the right buttons to get support but is an establishment RINO.

Thanks for the info. I was wondering about that.

Now, do Rubio and Jindal have to cojones to both step up and say, “If I am picked I will not run as I am not a NBC?”

there is a court case monday regarding eligibility. Anyone with a brain knows that jindal is NOT eligible since his parents were not citizens when he was born in US.

Agree. But to challenge the candidacy the constitution also requires that a plantiff has standing. And so far no plaintiff has proven standing to challenge Obama’s legitimacy.

You can’t be serious. Jindal took on the most powerful unions in La and now La has the broadest school voucher program. This should go national and put the teacher’s union thugs out of business and is the surest way to school reform.

So lets say Jindal or Rubio gets the nod. And you live in a swing state (ohio for instance) where every vote counts. Does that mean you don’t vote?

That would be fantastic! Heavenly! It would be the only thing that would force the media to take on the issue of Obama's eligibility.

Please explain... I have yet to see anything in the news to lead me to believe he has RINO tendancies. What is the Louisiana Purchase? He can’t possibly be worse than Christie, Rubio, Daniels, Bush or any of the other ones being talked about.

Fortunately for Jindal (and Rubio), nobody is buying the made-up definition of Natural Born Citizen that birthers have been trying to sell in court case after losing court case (they've got a whole mountain of them now, each one a loser).

Yet on every Rubio or Jindal thread, the birther clown car shows up like clockwork, whining and stomping their feet that nobody will listen to them.

Why should they embrace this made-up nonsense? This so-called "requirement" that citizen parents are needed to confer Natural Born status is nothing but bunk. That's why it loses every time in court and you have Constitutional authorities like Newt Gingrich, conservatives who know what they're talking about, commenting that Rubio will make a great President someday.

Hi Steelfish

I know Jindal sounds great out of state. He has a PR team that is first class! But to those that live in LA we see very bad Rhino behavior from him that is difficult to explain to out of state people.

He likes to pretend that he is like Gov Walker. But ALL of Jindal’s numbers are based on “one time money” that will not even be in our budget next year. Also he pays regular state employees from special funds so that he can tout that we have less government employees on payroll.

The school voucher program is already showing some serious problems with “schools” that do not even exist being approved to accept vouchers, which Jindal is now calling “scholarships”. And I can't even explain how frightening it is that Jindal pushed former Edwin Edwards ally John Alario for Senate president.

I truly wish Jindal was that man that Walker is; the man that his PR team pretends he is. But unfortunately he is not.

So fight him on that. But for people to say he's ineligible, despite being born in Miami, because his parents weren't citizens is nothing but a load of pure horse manure that nobody outside of the birther clown car is buying.

“Original intent of the framers and subsequent Supreme Court decisions agree that you must be born on U.S. soil by TWO citizen parents.”

Horsepucky!

The Founders were using a variation of a very well known legal term they had used before: natural born subject. And the US Supreme Court, in 1898, said the meaning of natural born citizen is rooted in that term: natural born subject.

It had a long and well know legal history, was used interchangeably with NBC by early legislatures, and it meant, with a few exceptions, anyone born in the country, or who derived their citizenship from their birth. There was NO two citizen parent requirement. Ever.

Louisiana Purchase is the $300 million dollar deal for LA that purchased Mary Landrieu’s vote in the Senate for Obamacare. It turned out that Jindal worked behind the scenes with Landrieu’s and asked her to get the money. Jindal is a traitor and I can never forgive him for this. He is one of those who made Obamacare happen.

“...nobody is buying the made-up definition of Natural Born Citizen that birthers have been trying to sell...”

Ya mean you’re not buying it....Dosen’t surprise me!

Natural Born Citizen is a matter of language. And yes it was made up, and refined...hundreds of years ago. The term refers to persons born in a country to parents who are citizens of that country. These people form the bulk of any society and are the foundation upon which the continued existance of a nation relies. It is a simple concept that somehow escapes you. Willfull ignorance????

On previous threads, if I remember correctly, you were miffed that because your children were born out of country, therefore lack jus solis, you’ve taken on a personal crusade in muddling the meaning of NBC, to further your own adgenda (need I speculate someone else’s also???)

Frankly I’m not buying YOUR meme. The Founders did not coin the term NBC as you would have us believe, but rather used the term as they understood it from reading the leading European jurist’s books on Natural Law. No, not Royal Law, nor Common Law, but indeed Natural Law, where the government is responsible TO the citizens, not vice versa, and human rights are bestowed by God on his creation, not handed out as sops to a fawning population by corrupt politicians, or removed at the whim of some tryanical despot.

There is a very valid and good reason that the Founders wished that the highest office in the land be restricted to people born in the country to citizen parents.

Don’t believe me or them???? Look no farther than the one time the nation chose to ignore Article II and see the result. We got Barack Obama......nuff said.....The proof is in the pudding....

....or maybe you’re happy with his Administration, or dissatisfied with the Constitution. If so, on either count, you’re on the wrong website.

Thanks for posting that.

I see so many people here bound and determined that they know the constitutional definition of eligibility and I don’t see it that way.

So, somebody’s wrong.

Surely, it’s not me. that almost never happens.

Funny that you also seem to show up like clockwork spewing your belief that every case has been debunked when you know the case has never been tried! You absolutely have a right to your opinion, but don't go around stating that people are whining about this issue when you seem to come on every time whining right back. Truce - you are so welcome to your opinion as others are welcome to theirs.

You seem to like that term....birther clown car....you have used it twice in this thread.

Two thoughts.

Classic Alinski tactic....
“ridicule” can be an effective tool. The left and it’s operatives use it often when all else, especially logic and reason, fails.

When you don’t have a leg to stand on, I guess all you have left is ridicule......Time to move on sonny.

“...But the SC does not care...”

It isn’t within the Supreme Court’s Constitutionally derived power to make the decision concerning another branch of government.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

QUO WARRANTO LEGAL BRIEF: part 1

INTRODUCTION:

Chapter 35§ 16-3501 Persons against whom issued; civil action.

A quo warranto may be issued from the United States District Court for the District of Columbia in the name of the United States against a person who within the District of Columbia usurps, intrudes into, or unlawfully holds or exercises, a franchise conferred by the United States or a public office of the United States, civil or military. The proceedings shall be deemed a civil action.

The federal statute for quo warranto was tailor made by the legislature to challenge any person occupying any public office of the United States under questionable title thereto.

This legal brief considers all relevant issues pertaining to the proper legal use of the extraordinary writ of quo warranto to determine Presidential eligibility...

For more information, see: http://naturalborncitizen.wordpress.com/2009/03/04/quo-warranto-legal-brief-part-1/

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

The U.S.Constitution states that only the Congress has the power to remove a usurper from office. Two Senators were removed this way in the 19th century.

The Congress, reluctant to take on the political ramifications inherent in investigating a usurper President, delegated its authority to the Washington, D.C., District Courts to try the usurper President in that venue. The means is by Quo warranto.

What do you mean, 2020?

The Federal statute has been around since before 1915; the lawyers filing these cases simply do not know what they are doing.

The Supreme Court does not have the Constitutional power to remove someone from a Federal elected office. Only the Congress has that power, and the power to remove a usurper from the Presidency was delegated, by Congress, to the District Court, Washington, D.C. The process is called Quo warranto.

Go and read at the link I provided in my original post.

If it is all that simple, Obama would have been out of office by now in chains. Every conservative attorney in Washington can’t figure out how to properly file the case? And, the SC cannot allow anyone “standing” so they can check documents? Wow, this is complex. I read the sentence and I get an idea what it means but the SC can’t? Frustrated.

Well...it seems that all the justices in the District Court of Washington, D.C., are Democrats. Perhaps that is disccouraging enough to keep the civil action of Quo warranto from being front and cener. But that is only my guess.

No matter how biased the source, the fact that Landrieu released emails proves that Jindal was involved in it.
