Congressman: Obama 'enjoying' eligibility dispute
WND ^ | August 10, 2010 | Bob Unruh

Posted on 08/09/2010 8:55:51 PM PDT by RobinMasters

A member of Congress from California says there's no need for the president to be born in the United States – or to have two parents who are United States citizens – to be a "natural born citizen" and be eligible to be president.

And U.S. Rep. Brian Bilbray, R-Calif., told WND today that he believes President Obama, who's been named as a defendant in multiple legal and other challenges claiming he is not eligible to be president, is enjoying the dispute over his background.

Further, Bilbray said the document that Obama critics should be hunting for is the passport he used when he traveled to Indonesia and other places early in his life.

The controversy over Bilbray's comments developed when a Youtube video was posted. In the video, of a television interview on "The Ed Show," Bilbray said, "It's just like people thinking that you gotta be born in the United States to be president. You don't have to be. That's a legend. We got to clarify that."

For an egotist to be gabbed about is to be petted on his ego. That kind of makes sense.

Bilbray hasn’t a clue on this topic, obviously.

And I would bet a few cigar boxes of nickels that Barack Obama has, his very self, been kept in the dark about the matter by his handlers. He prolly does not know if he’s a Kenyan or not. Or if his daddy is even Barack Obama, Sr.

Any passports used by 0 have left the building. The Passport Office was raided during the ‘08 campaign. A witness was murdered before he could testify. No wonder 0 is amused.

No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.

Of course, he treats his entire presidency as a joke. Why would eligibility be different?

Hey Brian BilBray (D for dumba$$)---

I hate to break it to you, but BilBray is a Republican.

He was first elected to the House in 1994 during the Republican "revolution", and served until 2001.

He ran again in the special election to complete the term of Randy "Duke" Cunningham, and has since been re-elected.

I’m no mind reader...but I think he DOES NOT KNOW who the sperm doner was. My bet has always been on the alky commie old Chi writer Davis.

Your mileage may vary. May be the young alky, Kenyan commie, scuzzyball.

He looks a great deal like komrad Davis.

What a life he had with that nut case of a muther.

I’m more concerned with why he is so scrupulously hiding his college transcripts.

Could it be that he isn’t the “genius” he is purported to be, and just “checked the box”?

I wonder how much Obama would enjoy it if his birth certificate came to light and we all found out he was really adopted...the illigitimate offspring of his “grandfather” Stanley Dunham and a black prostitute from Hotel street in Honolulu. Maybe this would make Barack smile letting everyone in on why everyone looks at Barack and his “grandfather” and say how much they look alike. I didn’t come up with this theory but believe it makes more sense than Barack Obama Sr.(who looked like Louis Armstrong) fathered a baby that doesn’t look anything like him. In Obama’s book “Dreams from my Father” he recalled when he was young how he like to go down to a bar on Hotel Street and have a coke and his “grandpa” had a drink. Why would he take Barack there? Probably so Barack’s real mother could see him? Are you laughing still Barack?

Bilbray ? no matter how much you mock the US Constitution and tell us it doesn't matter where he was born, at least unwittingly you are making the truth slip from your mouth in your own words that something is not right, at least you are admitting it.

Murder of Mr. Lieutenant Quarles Harris, Jr.

In this case, Lieutenant does not indicate a rank in the police, military, or any other organization. Lieutenant was his given name.

And this matter has never been thoroughly investigated. Could it have something to do with the owner of one of the contract companies whose employees were involved with this passport records break-in is now one of Obama's counter terrorism advisers?

He happens to be right. A person can be natural born without being born in the US and without having two citizen parents.

The person just has to be a citizen at birth. For example, a child born of a single US citizen mother, and foreign father, born abroad inherits his mother's citizenship, making him a natural born citizen and eligible for president.

Who, Lieutenant Quarles Harrris? Hardly an intrepid investigator. First off, "Lieutenant" wasn't his rank. It was his name. He was a DC gangbanger who got pulled over by the cops. Searching his car, they found pot, 21 credit cards, all under different names, and eight State Department passport application printouts, four of which matched names on the credit cards. He admitted that he was part of a credit card fraud ring that had a contact inside the private contractor that does the processing for the the State Department. He agreed to testify, but suffered the fate of many inner city residents who don't maintain the "don't snitch" ethos.

"He happens to be right. A person can be natural born
without being born in the US and without having two citizen parents."

Not according to a framer of the Constitution.

Center column 3rd paragraph down:

Bingham states: 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… . . –
John Bingham, framer of the 14 amendment in the United States House on March 9, 1866”

Charles Pinckney
Signer of the United States Constitution, Governor of South
Carolina. Senator and a member of the House of Representatives.
“Therefore, we can say with confidence that a natural-born
citizen of the United States means those persons born whose father the United States already has an established
jurisdiction over, i.e., born to father’s who are
themselves citizens of the United States.”
(I have more if you would like.)

"The person just has to be a citizen at birth. For example, a child born of a single US citizen mother, and
foreign father, born abroad inherits his mother's
citizenship, making him a natural born citizen and eligible for president."

Not so.

1952 The Immigration and Nationality Act of June 27, 1952, 66 Stat. 163, 235, 8 U.S. Code Section 1401 (b).

"Section 301. (a) The following shall be nationals and citizens of the United States at birth:

"(1) a person born in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof;

"(7) a person born outside the geographical limits of the United States and its outlying possessions of parents one
of whom is an alien, and the other a citizen of the United States, who prior to the birth of such person, was
physically present in the United States or its outlying possessions for a period or periods totaling not less than
ten years, at least five of which were after attaining the age of fourteen years.

Since Ms. Dunham was only 18 at the time that means she Does NOT transfer citizenship to Mr. Obama.

Children of CITIZENS be they born overseas ,shall be considered Natural born. (1790). A child born overseas to PARENTS who are American citizens is considered NATURAL BORN BECAUSE OUR COUNTRY IS BASED ON JUS SANGUINUS. Citizenship comes from the parents not place of birth. In obama’s case IF he was born in Kenya , his mother was to young to convey citizenship under the laws in 1961, and thus making him a Kenyan national. If obama was born in Hawaii,he would qualify as a native born citizen under the 14th amendment. Native born because he held dual citizenship at birth(Kenyan) and thus disqualified from being President under Article 2 of the U.S. Constitution.

The purpose of Article 2 of the Constitution was to prevent foreign influence in the White House by requiring that both parents of the President be U.S. citizens at the time of the President’s birth.

Well, he may be right that Obama is enjoying this. He is a malignant narcissist who is pleased with himself for pulling the wool over everyone’s eyes.

And since he has shredded all the document by this time, and murdered at least one inconvenient witness, he feels he has nothing to worry about.

“Come and get me, coppers!” as the insane mobsters used to shout in those old Hollywood movies.

On the other hand, Bilbray really needs to study the constitution that he is sworn to uphold and protect.
