Skip to comments.Obamas ineligibility: Prepare for the fall
Posted on 05/30/2011 7:40:28 AM PDT by Ordinary_American
The United States is in a Constitutional and political crisis without precedent.
What can ordinary Americans do when a large number of politicians are corrupt and an even larger portion of the national political leadership is complicit in a cover-up of that corruption?
Do we petition those leaders to investigate and punish themselves?
The evident bewilderment displayed by Will is prima facie evidence of the depth of denial now prevalent in Washington, D.C.
It is an equivalent to writing an article after the Pearl Harbor attack entitled The Japanese might not like us.
Having been born in Panama and not eligible to run for the Presidency, McCain obviously doesnt recognize the Constitution either.
For me, the uncertainty about McCains ineligibility was resolved by the bogus, non-binding Senate Resolution 511, co-sponsored by Obama, which declared McCain a natural born citizen and, therefore, eligible for the Presidency.
The fact that Congress has no authority to do such a thing was apparently completely irrelevant to that majestic body. Maybe Im a cynic, but it sounds to me like just another crooked, backroom deal.
If McCain and Obama both didnt need the cover, why go through that elaborate Senate charade?

That is good enough to be a natural born citizen.
Sorry to bring bad news to you on Memorial Day.
Vattel had nothing to do with US law on citizenship. Multiple courts cases have repeatedly said we look to English common law to define the terms used in the Constitution, not some swiss guy.
“In Smith v. Alabama, Mr. Justice Matthews, delivering the judgment of the court, said:
There is no common law of the United States, in the sense of a national customary law, distinct from the common law of England as adopted by the several States each for itself, applied as its local law, and subject to such alteration as may be provided by its own statutes. . . . There is, however, one clear exception to the statement that there is no national common law. The interpretation of the Constitution of the United States is necessarily influenced by the fact that its provisions are framed in the language of the English common law, and are to be read in the light of its history.”
That, it now appears, is their plan B poison pill. Always has been the fallback. Class warfare is their stock and trade, brought to mainstream by the community agitator, a man with no history, bought and paid for in advance.
This is new to my files. I have it that McCain was born in a Panama hospital. If you have the info I would like to know the name of the ship.
They keep promising that the birther issue will bring Obama down any day now, in spite of the fact that no one in any position of power cares.
How much contrary evidence will it take before you realize your quest is as futile as that of the guy who's predicting the word will end in October?
I don't like John McCain. That being said he was eligible to be president. He was born while his father served our country. That is all that needs to be said.
Sigh. Not another reference to the fake McCain BC that's floating around on the internet.
FYI, McCain was not born in Colon. He was born on the Coco Solo naval base within the canal zone. The Colon BC you are referring to is a forgery that was submitted into evidence in a lawsuit seeking to bar McCain from the ballot during the GOP primary seaons.
That statement is a lie which he put in his book.
Here is a copy of McCains Certificate of Birth:
In the upper left corner it reads he was born in “Colon, R. of P.” Notice it does not say Coco Solo, Canal Zone.
In the upper right corner, it reads he was born in “Colon Hospital” and not some non existing hospital in Coco Solo.
It can’t get clearer than this.
Yeah, who cares what the Constitutional intent was!
Feeeeelings are what matter. And who somebody’s grandfather was!
Much info on NBC meaning.
Your reply makes no sense whatsoever. If I take a job at Motorola without qualifying they can fire me at any time. Bringing a world is doomed argument into this shows that you have a problem with analogy’s.
There is a difference between a ‘citizen’ and a ‘natural born citizen’. This difference goes all the way back to the writing/adoption of the Constitution. The difference is explicit in the requirement for Representatives and Senators to be ‘citizens’ but the requirement for POTUSA to be a ‘ natural born citizen’. The Founding Fathers were well aware/versed of the difference and why it should be. As to the Senate resolution I think it was a smoke screen to allow a possible challenge to a McCain election and it never was a lawful declaration. There are many of us under various parents and native soil heritage who do not meet the requirement of ‘natural born’ and just have to accept the blessing of citizenship like my brother who was killed in the battle of Okinawa and myself who was just days away from an invasion of Japan.
If we disregard the Constitution then something is wrong.
And since the Constitution is already sickeningly disregarded, something has been very wrong for a long time and getting worse.
The only way that would be more obviously fake is if it were done in crayon. It amazes me you would even present that as authentic.
There is no update to Issa's investigations. Millions of stimulus money went to fake zip codes. That is stealing, no out rage from congress. FED foreign bailouts, Gun walker? Nothing. It really seems like one corrupt group.
The tea party and Palin threaten the corrupt system.
I disagree. See my post to pepperdog. I will argue further that it is the seemingly innocuous justifications apart from the explicit words of the Constitution that allows Obama to slip by into POTUSA. I mean no disparaging of the service of veterans, being one myself, but I do believe our Constitution is slipping away from us bit by bit by transformations.
The Republican Party will join with the Democrats to block any investigation of Obama. They are all afraid to screw up their own careers.
