(ACN) Rep. Vicky Hartzler (R-MO) recently told audience members at a town hall meeting that she has "doubts" that Barack Obama's birth certificate is authentic, but when pressed, she pivoted and claimed that Barack Obama's eligibility to hold office under the Constitution of the United States, is not "the real issue."

Ineligibility -— Off the table because of Mexican Romney.

Ineligibility -— Off the table because of Panamanian McCain.

What a coincidental coincidence!

It's like the GOP has sold US OUT!

We're all Marxists now. No one has standing. We're all rape victims now - lie back and enjoy it. It may some down to BITS before too long.

"with republicans like this, who needs democrats?"

You've got it ‘hand.’ Why should she put her foot in it when no Republican will admit her or she has ever heard of Chief Justice Morrison Waite, whose decision turned the law familiar to our framers into precedent. Minor v. Happersett, 88 US 162, (1875):

“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.”

This is a stall until the dust has settled. If Marco Rubio winds up as vice president, it is likely that the Democrats will raise the issue, because Rubio was not born to citizen parents, and Barack's potential to command distruction will have been terminated. Barack Obama has never claimed to be a natural born citizen. Limiting the presidency to natural born citizens is a negative liberty from his perspective. Barack told us in 2002 that he regards the Constitution as principally of historical significance. Barack told us he is a naturalized citizen. That is probably true. His mother's citizenship makes him a citizen, with a few caveats; but his father's non-citizenship prevents him from ever being a native, or natural born citizen.

Don't be confused. A ‘native’ is the historical term for natural born citizen, as was confirmed in Minor v. Happersett quoted above. A ‘native-born citizen of the US’ is a 14th Amendment naturalized citizen. Anchor babies are 'native-born' citizens, and not eligible to be president. There are only two classes of citizen, naturalized - by Article 1 Section 8’s charter to congress to create an uniform rule of naturalization, and natural born, from millenia of acceptance, from natural law, and as cited, both as precedent and dictum at least thirty times in Supreme Court decisions.

Ask any legislator why Minor v. Happersett no longer holds. Ask any legislator why Chief Justice John Marshall's citation of Law of Nations definition, ‘born on the soil to citizen parents’ is not still the common law, or Chief Justice Waite's precedent in Minor has been overturned. They won't answer, or will pretend they don't know. They are all liars, afraid of the consequences from the truth.

When did congress members stop taking an oath to uphold the constitution?

So what the erstwhile Republican is saying, literally is:

“Old news. Nobody cares. Time to move on.”

Gosh that sounds somehow familiar.

You can post longer excerpts. I won’t follow the link.

If this is your blog, ElIguana, don’t use FR to promote it.

It's not posted, it's excerpted.

No one needs to excerpt their own blog unless they are just trolling for hits. Like with a stolen video in this case.

Soon, they’ll want us to tip our hat to a “new constitution”.

in any case, I will be found doing this.

It is jackels like this clown that allow the people who could do something about his inelligibility to do nothing and get away with it. No, let’s not just move on. Let’s stop and look hard at it. He has no Hawaii birth certificate. Somebody make him adhere to the Constitution.

I can't count the number of times I've heard people say that even though Obama isn't eligible, to remove him would cause blacks to riot across the Country. These cowards are going to get their riots, anyway.
