Is Obama Bribing the States on Eligibility?
drkatesview ^ | March 11, 2011 | drkate

Posted on 03/12/2011 9:54:29 PM PST by thecodont

Continuing to thwart the United States Constitution and the people’s will, the Obama-Jarrett administration appears to be bribing the states considering eligibility legislation. Already Georgia* and New Hampshire’s eligibility bills will be postponed to 2013, clearly to protect Obama. And although there are signs of improvement in the language of the Arizona bill, what do you want to bet that will be postponed too?

The way the bribe is being set up only reinforces our own research that Congress is engaged in the cover up of the usurpation.

The goal is to reduce or threaten federal funding for key infrastructure projects in those states that have eligibility bills. But in order to hide the extortion, the reductions in funding must appear to come from Congress, specifically the republicans in Congress. Whatever loophole is left the democrat-controlled Senate will fix.

This is the federal government extracting behavior out of the states by leveraging our tax dollars. It is power the Founders never wanted our federal government to have.

Two can play that game, its time for we the people to go Gault stop work and demand an investigation into Obama’s eligivility. If we do nothing he will continue to usurp the Constitutions and Congress and the SCOTUS are co-conspirators IMO....cut off their tax dollars so they can’t use them against US.

I wonder how many “protesters” would have to show up at the white house with signs callling for a birth certificate before the media would give it half the coverage the communists protesting in Wisconsin are getting.

Aah, yes ... he’s quite comfortable and very familiar with vengeful, spiteful retribution.

“Don’t think we’re not keeping score, brother.”

That’s what President Barack Obama said to Rep. Peter DeFazio in a closed-door meeting of the House Democratic Caucus last week, according to the Associated Press.

The issue is about much more than just the BC. It is also about why every detail of his entire life is off limits and is buried.

To me, this is the bigger issue.

As I see it we can legally cut our taxes by cutting our income...otherwise unless there are millions of taxpayers willing to risk jail by not paying taxes a tax strike would not work...If people proposed a strike of cutting back on work or even stopping work, closing businesses etc coupled with a buyers strike, such as making no purchases that were not necessary to survive, no luxuries, no entertainment, no new clothes, appliances, etc...then businesses would be hurt just like the banks the unions pulled their money from. Businesses would start demanding Justice and an end to this BS.

I am open to suggestions, but it is past time to do something, and must be done prior to violence which these a$$ clowns don't seem to realize is almost the last step that is left.

Congress needs to fear losing their jobs and their contributions that help them keep their jobs..so how do we have any leverage over them? Voting seems to have scared some but not for long...they need us constantly in their face and realize that the issue must be resolved before things get better.

The people ended the Vietnam war (right or wrong) gave us civil right reform etc...the people own this country and need to take it back...Civil disobedience-nonviolen resistance to a non-responsive government...we need to take some lessons from history, we are on the right side of the issue..Congress & SCOTUS needs to fear repercussions for not doing the right thing more than fear of not covering up like they are currently doing. maybe we all need to key on a small number or reps and let them know we are not going away and the sooner they address this the better off the Nation will be.

Darrel Issa apparently has the power but doesn't seem interested in doing anything about eligibility, maybe we need to concentrate on him and his district? I suggest starting with polite persuasion then escalating if he is not receptive. Boehner appears to be compromised and doesn't have the fortitude to do the right thing...

While I believe his Mickey Mouse BC is a fraudulent document the first extant issue is:

Being born of two American Citizens, of which, he admits he wasn’t and details his dual citizenship in response to “Prover” claims.

Here is something I like to post from time to time:
 
 
Let them claim there is no long form.
 
1st.  They and everyone has said all along the COLB is an abstract.  A COLB is a walkup document, meaning you can walk up to the desk, ask for your BC and they will provide an abstract, called a COLB in about 10 minutes.  That means there is a long form and Hawaii statutes, starting at (338)
 
2nd.  Hawaii already said they have seen Barry O.'s vital records and issued two statements - blah, blah, blah, right?
 
3rd.  Barry O. never had to show his long form BC ever, in his life, for anything?  Like obtaining a passport.  That one document is better than a drivers license.  It saying to the world you are who is contained in the passport document, which is based on an investigation of your background and YOU MUST provide a Birth Certificate as foundational proof of who YOU say you are.  From there the State Department does their background check on you and if you are who you say you are with no ammendments, modifications or whatever to your identity they issue it clean. 
 
Most adults can go to a desk or filing cabinet in his house and produce a birth certificate in a few minutes?
 

Barry O. tried to pass of something that was inconsistent with what the rest of have and know to be a “Birth Certificate”.

The so called COLB has many flaws with it:

  • His father’s race could never have been listed as “African”.  That was not the nomenclature at all, in the 1960’s.  So that begins the suspicion of a fraudulent document.
  •  The COLB is also cropped in many of the pictures that claim it is a scan.  If it is a scan, why not leave the document and size intact?
  • The COLB also has no artifacts such paper folds.  A scan does not make those disappear and in fact will highlight them.
  • The COLB that is scanned mysteriously does not show the Seal of Hawaii.  Why?  Because it was computer generated and not scanned.  Guess they forgot to add that back in.
  • More over, many of us are concerned and want to know why he wasted time producing a document that is inconsistent with what we know a Birth Certificate looks like.

 The best part and even more confusing is why he didn't release any of the three Birth Certificates we know already existed before 2007.

  • His kindergarten records and the BC, that should be there, have mysteriously disappeared.
  • The BC he used to get into college, apply for loans and most definitely used for his passport. That wasn't available?
  • Why couldn't he just present the one he found among his mother's belongings upon her death.   He waxed on and wondered about it and his father in one of his books.  Why not post that one?

Those were most certainly BC’s and not a COLB. There is no reason to create confusion but, for the fact he is hiding something. That something will be discovered, though and this is a long process.

“I discovered this article, folded away among my birth certificate and old vaccination forms, when I was in high school. It’s a short piece, with a photograph of him. No mention is made of my mother or me, and I’m left to wonder whether the omission was intentional on my father’s part, in anticipation of his long departure. Perhaps the reporter failed to ask personal questions, intimidated by my father’s imperious manner; or perhaps it was an editorial decision, not part of the simple story that they were looking for. I wonder, too, whether the omission caused a fight between my parents.”

From “Dreams From My Father” (Pg. 26 last paragraph)

So with all these Birth Certificates lying around, why did he feel it necessary to produce a "Certification of Live Birth" that is inconsistent with a Birth Certificate and wholly lacking all of the information you would find, in you know, a Birth Certificate?

He seemed to have some emotional attachment to the Birth Certificate found among his mother’s belongings.  Why wouldn’t he just slap that one up, for all the world to see?

It seemed important that he found a document that is called a “Birth Certificate” and it is highly unlikely he would not know what one looks like.

Hope no one brings up some house fire that vaporized his BC.  That was in 1972 and none of the documents listed here would have been affected by that “fishy” event.

The issue of Natural Born Citizen was brought against John McCain long before Barrack was nominated to the DNC as a Presidential Candidate.

In fact, in order to place McCain on the ballot, the United States Senate went so far as to craft the Senate Resolution 511 proclaiming John McCain a Natural Born Citizen.

There is a cloud over Barrack's birth, to be sure.  But the fact that still remains is his birth was of a divided nationality British and American.  One is wholly one thing or another but not completely two things at the same time.

Senate Resolution 511

Recognizing that John Sidney McCain, III, is a natural born citizen.

Whereas the Constitution of the United States requires that, to be eligible for the Office of the President, a person must be a `natural born Citizen’ of the United States;

Whereas the term `natural born Citizen’, as that term appears in Article II, Section 1, is not defined in the Constitution of the United States;

Whereas there is no evidence of the intention of the Framers or any Congress to limit the constitutional rights of children born to Americans serving in the military nor to prevent those children from serving as their country’s President;

Whereas such limitations would be inconsistent with the purpose and intent of the `natural born Citizen’ clause of the Constitution of the United States, as evidenced by the First Congress’s own statute defining the term `natural born Citizen’;

Whereas the well-being of all citizens of the United States is preserved and enhanced by the men and women who are assigned to serve our country outside of our national borders;

Whereas previous presidential candidates were born outside of the United States of America and were understood to be eligible to be President; and

Whereas John Sidney McCain, III, was born to American citizens on an American military base in the Panama Canal Zone in 1936: Now, therefore, be it

Resolved, That John Sidney McCain, III, is a `natural born Citizen’ under Article II, Section 1, of the Constitution of the United States.

 Now, let us take this simple and explore its hidden meaning.

 Whereas the Constitution of the United States requires that, to be eligible for the Office of the President, a person must be a `natural born Citizen’ of the United States;

They apparently have read the Constitution and have zeroed in on one clause that no law or legislative body has the right to amend.

Whereas the term `natural born Citizen’, as that term appears in Article II, Section 1, is not defined in the Constitution of the United States;

 The term ‘natural born citizen’ is not defined, however other rulings by the Supreme Court, Congress, and other writings from such as John Bingham, do define what a ‘natural born citizen’ is. For sake of space I will only quote the following.

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)

http://www.law.cornell.edu/supct/html/historics/USSC_CR_0088_0162_Z…

Whereas there is no evidence of the intention of the Framers or any Congress to limit the constitutional rights of children born to Americans serving in the military nor to prevent those children from serving as their country’s President;

 So the Senate decided to make assumptions and attempt to pass a ‘Gentleman’s Agreement’ on the same. We have already seen from the prior statement that they claimed to have no knowledge of the meaning, and its definition.

Whereas such limitations would be inconsistent with the purpose and intent of the `natural born Citizen’ clause of the Constitution of the United States, as evidenced by the First Congress’s own statute defining the term `natural born Citizen’;

 So the Senate decided to make assumptions and attempt to pass a ‘Gentleman’s Agreement’ on the same. We have already seen from the prior statement that they have no knowledge of the meaning, and its definition.

Whereas the well-being of all citizens of the United States is preserved and enhanced by the men and women who are assigned to serve our country outside of our national borders;

 It sounds nice, but means nothing? Some fluff but again means nothing.

Whereas previous presidential candidates were born outside of the United States of America and were understood to be eligible to be President; and

 Whom are they referring to, that was born ‘outside’ the United States and who deemed them eligible?

Whereas John Sidney McCain, III, was born to American citizens on an American military base in the Panama Canal Zone in 1936: Now, therefore, be it

Resolved, That John Sidney McCain, III, is a `natural born Citizen’ under Article II, Section 1, of the Constitution of the United States.

So the Senate gave by law, what nature failed to do. Would that not be a ‘naturalized’ citizenship?

So the Senate deemed that two (2) American or US Citizen parents was an essential to the definition of a ‘natural born citizen’ that was not defined in the Constitution. So how did they deem that the issue was being born outside the jurisdiction of the United States if they had no definition or requirements of what ‘constituted’ a ‘natural born citizen?’ It seems like they know the definition, but are hoping the American public doesn’t. There is but one defintion that a ‘natural born citizen’ has to have citizen parents and being born in country and that is Vattel’s Law of Nations.

As I refered to SR 511. SR511 is a non-binding, non-lawful understanding, that can not be held as a LAW. Being such, a non-binding resolution is a written motion adopted by a deliberative body that cannot progress into a law. The substance of the resolution can be anything that can normally be proposed as a motion.This type of resolution is often used to express the body’s approval or disapproval of something which they cannot otherwise vote on, due to the matter being handled by another jurisdiction, or being protected by a constitution.

Again, I will note: being protected by a constitution.

“Simple resolutions do not require the approval of the other house nor the signature of the President, and they do not have the force of law.”

The reason I make this point is that for the chance that John Mccain would have actually won the 2008 Presidential election. The issue of his eligibility not only would have been brought up, but would have stated congressional hearings, the likes of Watergate all over again. The Congress would have in no time instituted articles of impeachment and the motion would have been approved. Then the Senate would have their chance to remove John McCain, however since they already have voted with their ‘Gentlemen’s Agreement’, regardless how the vote went. A non-binding, non-lawful resolution that trumps the United States Constitution could be waved in front of the American public, and John McCain, could go back in the corner, stick his thumb in his pie, and exclaim “Oh, what a good boy am I.”

Senate Resolution 511, was an attempt to circumvent the United States Constitution, and amend the ‘Natural Born Citizen’ Clause of which there has NEVER been an amendment or change too.

More then just a non-binding resolution, SR511 defined John McCain’s eligibility based on  being born of US Parents [NOTE the plural] but outside the country. Therefore the only alternative based on THEIR wording is ‘born in country’. They did not change the requirement of two (2) US parents.

Where is there a definition as to a ‘Natural Born Citizen’ based on parents [again plural] and born in country? Vattel’s Law of Nations.

Why if John McCain was held to these requirements, was Barack Obama not held of being born of US Parents [plural] and in the United States. 

Barack Obama has admitted that not only was his father a foreign national, but that he himself was a British Subject at birth. A British Subject is a foreign national and how can a foreign national be a ‘Natural Born Citizen’ as required by the United States Constitution?

Some great posts here. Thank you!

Your post show the clear ‘basis’ of the Article II clause ‘natural born Citizen’. It is that natural law citizenship follows your father. The first naturalization act said it clearly - to the point of not requiring the jus soli requirement.

Jus sanguinis is the foundation and never disputed foundation of natural passage of citizenship.

No one wants to deal with this basic fact. Natural citizenship is based on your father. All other citizenship including that based soley on jus soli (as in the 14th Amendment) is man-made or positive law and is not ‘natural’.

I will point out that ‘natural born Citizen’ IS defined. It IS defined because it is not a PROPER NOUN. It is a phrase with a proper noun (Citizen) with two adjectives preceding it. Those adjectives are ‘natural’ and ‘born’. Each can stand alone. Thus ‘natural born Citizen’ is the exact same as ‘natural Citizen and born Citizen’. Language constructs sometimes map well to mathematical constructs. So in mathematics this looks like this (n + b)*C = n*C+b*C.

So can break down ‘natural born Citizen’ into ‘natural Citizen’ and ‘born Citizen’.

As indicated natural Citizen is that that follows your father. This is natural law. A born Citizen is a Citizen ‘FROM BIRTH’. Not ‘at birth’, FROM BIRTH. Go look it up the definition of the adjective born is ‘FROM birth’.

This is counter to many statements by may politicians and judges. I care not. I have faith that our founders were not sloppy and not incorrect in their meaning and intent for Article II. They did not ‘define’ ‘natural born Citizen’ because they did not need to. All 3 words are NOT a PROPER NOUN. Though one is - Citizen. Had they meant to defined a new PROPER NOUN called Natural Born Citizen they had to do only one thing - capitalize natural and born. They did not. And they knew the English language.

Do not the intent and the meaning of this critical Constitutional phrase get shredded. Our founders had it right.

From factcheck.org:
Update, August 26: We received responses to some of our questions from the Hawaii Department of Health. They couldn’t tell us anything about their security paper, but they did answer another frequently-raised question: why is Obama’s father’s race listed as “African”? Kurt Tsue at the DOH told us that father’s race and mother’s race are supplied by the parents, and that “we accept what the parents self identify themselves to be.” We consider it reasonable to believe that Barack Obama, Sr., would have thought of and reported himself as “African.” It’s certainly not the slam dunk some readers have made it out to be.
http://www.factcheck.org/elections-2008/born_in_the_usa.html

“You know, during the campaign of 2008, I was actually in the mainland campaigning for Sen. McCain. This issue kept coming up so much in the campaign, and again I think it’s one of those issues that is simply a distraction from the more critical issues that are facing the country. And so I had my health director, who is a physician by background, go personally view the birth certificate in the birth records of the Department of Health, and we issued a news release at that time saying that the president was, in fact, born at Kapi’olani Hospital in Honolulu, Hawaii. And that’s just a fact. And yet people continue to call up and e-mail and want to make it an issue. And I think it’s, again, a horrible distraction for the country by those people who continue this. ... It’s been established. He was born here.”—[Former}Governor Linda Lingle (R-HI)

The guy hasn’t shown enough verifiable I’d even to get a driver’s license.

Know one knows anything about him except what Ayers dreamed up in those storybooks he wrote.

Nothing Ayers wrote is verified or even claimed by Obama. And several passages in OBAMA’S OWN BOOKS, damn and disqualify him.

Obama is called ‘the witness protection program president’ for a reason.

He’s a black-box.

“The real thing here is that if we had just even 1/3 of the MSM actually true to their profession this man would not even be in office.”
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

I am totally pi**** at the conservative media!

I will **NEVER** forgive Fox News. I stopped watching them 2 years ago. OReilly is enough to make me hurl.

I am disgusted with Rush Limbaugh. He spent less than 5 minutes on the topic for the first two years, and when he did mention it he treated the Constitution like a JOKE. He is still ( for the most part) ignoring Obama’s eligibility and is still making jokes about this Constitutional requirement.

The republican primary candidate who is brave enough to take on obama directly, get in his face and call him on all the crap he’s gotten away with, gets my vote. I don’t care who it is at this point. I just want the POS out of office.

2012 - the year Obama’s fraud ends!
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

No, it doesn't end in 2012. Even if defeated, or if Obama is a one-term president, we are stuck with his judicial appointments and legislation.

If Obama is not a natural born citizen we, as conservatives, must see that he is removed, charged with a crime, and convicted.

This is **fundamentally** about preserving the rule of law and our beloved Constitution!

Aren’t there enough people active on the issue? What do you think Rush can do? Report every day on the same topic?

Until January of **this** year, Rush spent **less** than five puny minutes on the topic. And...In those five minutes he used the Constitution as a back board for JOKES!

Yeah! I really do think he could have done a LOT better!

This year, he did give some serious time in January. Since then he is back to using the Constituton as JOKE.

Rush, even since this year, could do still a lot better in his reporting.

My conclusion: Rush's commitment to the Constitution is about as deep as a thin dime in his pocket.

Your comment that I should want him to use **”every”** minute to discuss Obama’s eligibility is a STRAWMAN of **your** creation! I can not defend a strawman argument that you created.

You post this on nearly every thread. And...It is debunked every time.

Isn’t it time to get some new talking points from the DNC and DOJ?

...its time for we the people to go Gault stop work and demand an investigation into Obama’s eligibility. If we do nothing he will continue to usurp the Constitutions and Congress and the SCOTUS...

Without reading further on this thread, I absolutely agree with that sentiment!
(Although with a single caveat, we should not advocate action that would give the WH a basis for imposing martial law or calling out the Guard unless prepared for CW.)

What seems necessary is a Republican revolt v its leadership that presses for a Congressional inquiry which include subpoenas.

In light of the fraud by our Congress over the past two years, the revolt will have to be sparked and conducted by recently elected Republicans and those male and female members of Congress who have had the political balls to publicly challenge the WH over various issues.

Candor7 warned us early on about the incapability’s of "if-HI-says-he-was-born-there-its-good-enough-for-me" Boehner and it seems clear he was correct.

It is up to real Americans, such as most of those here on Free Republic, to hammer their members of Congress on this point.

Calls to our Congressmen and Senators 24/7 asking for an investigation into Zero’s eligibility would be in order.

You both raise excellent points. However, we may be stuck with the single issue of whether there was a non-U.S. birth.

It seems likely the USSC will render its opinion of what is included as an elements of NBC only upon application from Congress. OK, lets assume a sea change in Congress and the court opines NBC requires a citizen father.

O cannot be charged with concealing his parentage. My concern is that the court will state the finding should not be retroactive as the issue was previously unsettled. While that may preclude a second term, it would not likely interupt a second term. I.e., time is of the essence.
