Did Hope for Rising GOP Stars like Bobby Jindal Play a Role in the Obamas Presidential Eligibility Scandal?
When questions about Obamas eligibility to serve as President arose, I immediately recognized that this could be the biggest political scandal in U.S. history, bigger even than Watergate. The allegations, if true, would have created widespread political turmoil and would have had to involve people, high up people, ignoring and/or covering up facts. How could a young Senator from Illinois have gotten so far, so quickly, in national politics without some in both the Democratic & Republican Parties taking notice, researching, discovering details of his past and recognizing that there was a BIG potential problem? Especially, given that every other person in Washington is a lawyer, people knew, the media had to have known, known both of the problem and its ramifications. After all, its the political big league in Washington.
Having a legal background, I decided to do my own research to satisfy my curiosity and it became abundantly clear that legitimate questions existed and continue to exist. Questions regarding interpretation of Article II, Section I of the Constitution, questions of original intent, British/Kenyan law, acquisition of citizenship, questions about Obamas birthplace, his adoption, his educational scholarships, his parents foreign allegiance/citizenship, his prior inadvertent admissions, questions about his passport(s), etc., exist with sufficient basis in law and/or fact to warrant serious investigation and judicial review. So, like many others at the time, I sat back and waited for the media firestorm to begin. And I waited, and waited, and waited. Not a peep from the media, Hillary, McCain or Republicans. Why?

I wont hold my breast as why the vultures are still sitting in the trees in their swamps. It's just a question of time before all the Placentas will be "speaking" down from the pan!!!
HOW CAN A NATURAL BORN CITIZEN'S STATUS BE "GOVERNED" BY GREAT BRITAIN?
If Clinton had left office and Gore had been sworn in, he would have run in 2000 as an incumbent and no doubt won.
Perish the thought.
Things worked out better in the end.
The repubs are so impotent that it a national tragedy. They need to be replaced with Patriotic Americans that will stand up for the Constitution
Just one state to require BC proof to get on their Presidential ballot is all we need.
FOX NEWS and the other news networks are coerced to shut up and keep quiet....
Remember, there is reasonable doubt in this whole thing.
That was likely a waste of time.
Personally,...I am disgusted with Rush and Fox over Obama’s eligibility. Trust takes time to build and grow. By ignoring Obama’s eligibility Rush and Fox have destroyed my trust.
He need not have been. Vattel's Law of Nations provides a specific exemption to the "in the country" requirement, for those born "in the armies of the state".
§ 217. Children born in the armies of the state.
For the same reasons also, children born out of the country, in the armies of the state, or in the house of its minister at a foreign court, are reputed born in the country; for a citizen who is absent with his family, on the service of the state, but still dependent on it, and subject to its jurisdiction, cannot be considered as having quitted its territory.
Scandal? Diddling interns is a scandal. Subordinates spying on partisan opponents is a scandal. Extra-marital affairs are scandals.
Usurpation of the presidency by a foreign enemy of the USA is high treason, and the politicians, media critters, and party officials who abetted the fraud are also guilty of high treason.
Because his father was serving in the "armies of the state", and that was the reason for his "outside the country" birth to two US citizens, he was and is indeed eligible. Zero, OTOH, was not born of "parents who are citizens". See "Law of Nations" Vol. I section 212 and section 217.
The fake one you mean?
he was born outside the canal zone. coco solo didnt build the hospital facility until a few years after his birth. amador guerrero hospital in colon is like 1 mile from coco solo/canal zone.
The local English Language paper, the Aug, 31, 1936 of the "Panama American", two days after his birth, stated that "Lt. and Mrs. John S. McCain of the Submarine base are the parents of a son born Saturday at the Submarine Base Hospital".
That's also what his mother claims. You could ask her, she's still around.
Other research indicates that there was indeed a medical facility of some sort at Coco Solo, before that hospital was built not long after his birth, because records were found showing that there was a medical officer assigned to it in 1936.
However all that is likely irrelevant, since McCain's father was serving the country in the military, and the same document, Vattel's "Law of Nations" which defines the "Natural Born Citizen" to be one born in the country of parents who are citizens, also states that those born "in the armies of the state" "are reputed born in the country; for a citizen who is absent with his family, on the service of the state, but still dependent on it, and subject to its jurisdiction, cannot be considered as having quitted its territory."
Probably LBJ. Course we actually got him by assassination, and he was a disaster, but that would not have been the perception at the time.
Panama wasn’t US offshore territory but the miltiary base was. Combine that with BOTH parents BEING american citizens - it qualifies obviously!! I’m surprises at your suggestion danamco. I really am. CO
He did not dare to touch this issue, because he was/is in the same predicament as the illegal alien. If your are not born on U.S. soil then not a NBC regardless of parents!!!
I did vote for McLame, and especially for Palin, because a no-vote would be a Barry vote!!
I would have preferred the Huckster and the Mormon ahead of McLame!!!
As for Jindal ...
Not eligible? Sorry to hear that.
