Like ‘rat plants (or GOP) at TEA party events shouting racist slogans, I see Uniparty at work here.
Screw that teabagging Cooper, go Trump!
Unfortunately, even Trump won’t show that he has read the Constitution, or had his legal staff read the 14 or so Supreme Court cases repeating what was never doubted about natural born citizenship to point out that Obama, who never claimed to be a natural born citizen was born to an alien father making him constitutionally ineligible regardless of where he was born. To his credit, demonstrating his knowledge of the truth, Obama told us “I am a native-born citizen of the U.S., and by the 1948 British Nationality act, was born a British Subject because my father a citizen of Kenya, part of the British Empire in 1961”. “Native-born” citizen is the term used in the 14th Amendment when it made slaves, native-born in the U.S. but not citizens before 1866, into citizens. The children of native-born U.S. citizens born on U.S. soil after 1866 are then natural born citizens. Whether Obama is Muslim is immaterial. He was born to an alien father and sits in office because both political parties were counting on our ignorance, and not about to admit their complicity now.
The authors of the 14th Amendment explain why they avoided natural born citizenship in their amendment. They said it is about allegiance. Congressman John Bingham, initiator and co-author of the 14th Amendment in the 1866 Congressional Globe explained to the House: “I find no fault with the introductory clause [S 61 Bill], which is simply declaratory of what is written in the Constitution, that every human being born within the jurisdiction of the United States of parents not owing allegiance to any foreign sovereignty is, in the language of your Constitution itself, a natural born citizen .” Obama’s father owed no allegiance to the U.S. and it appears, neither does his son. If you believe “Dreams From my Father”, Obama’s father was a socialist, Kenyan, and non-observant Muslim, the last significant because Islam comes with its own set of laws that supersede our Constitution. Our framers anticipated the dangers from giving leadership to someone without allegiance to our Constitution, an allegiance disclaimed publically by Obama long before he ran for the presidency.
