  • On the Meaning of "Natural Born Citizen"

    Harvard Law Review ^ | Mar 11, 2015 | Neal Katyal & Paul Clement
    We have both had the privilege of heading the Office of the Solicitor General during different administrations. We may have different ideas about the ideal candidate in the next presidential election, but we agree on one important principle: voters should be able to choose from all constitutionally eligible candidates, free from spurious arguments that a U.S. citizen at birth is somehow not constitutionally eligible to serve as President simply because he was delivered at a hospital abroad. The Constitution directly addresses the minimum qualifications necessary to serve as President. In addition to requiring thirty-five years of age and fourteen years...
  • Ted Cruz is a Naturalized Citizen, not "Natural Born"

    Ted Cruz is a Naturalized Citizen, not "Natural Born" by Farmer John The question of who qualifies as a "natural born citizen" may be close in some cases, but the case of Ted Cruz is easy. Constitutionally speaking, Cruz is a naturalized citizen, not "natural born." Regarding citizenship, the Constitution grants Congress power over a uniform rule of naturalization, not over citizenship generally. Any citizen whose citizenship is derived from an act of Congress is thus a naturalized citizen, constitutionally speaking, and thus not "natural born." The basic principle is stated in United States v. Wong Kim Ark, 169...

    Speaking to Congress Wednesday, a woman born alive during an abortion reminded lawmakers that abortion actually does kill human life, because she would not be alive today had things gone as planned in 1977. 38-year-old Gianna Jessen entered the world under horrifying circumstances when she miraculously survived a saline abortion the kind where the baby burns alive from a caustic chemical before being suffocated to death when her mother was seven months pregnant. "Instead of dying, after 18 hours of being burned in my mothers womb, I was delivered alive in an abortion clinic in Los Angeles on...

    New York (CNN)Donald Trump is standing his ground. The billionaire businessman was unapologetic -- and as defiant as ever -- about a number of controversies that have inundated his presidential campaign in a wide-ranging interview with CNN's Anderson Cooper that aired on Wednesday and Thursday. The brash real estate mogul and former host of the reality TV show, "The Apprentice," has come under attack for referring to some immigrants coming into the United States as "rapists." Trump also addressed head-on a Washington Post report that said there were illegal immigrants working at one of Trump's hotel construction sites in Washington....
  • Homosexuality Has No Genetic Cause

    07/09/2015 6:47:42 AM PDT · by Moseley · 92 replies ^ | Septemer 4, 2014 | Jonathon Moseley
    A genetic cause for homosexuality is not scientifically possible. A homosexuality gene, if it existed, would quickly die out. However, it gradually becomes clear that liberals and progressives are poorly-educated about science. They passionately believe in evolution, yet they dont understand it. Public discussion is driven by an assumption that one may be born homosexual. Being born homosexual is a medical impossibility unless there is a specific gene causing it. That is, heterosexuals would have one genetic DNA sequence while homosexuals have a different DNA sequence in its place. I discovered something debating this topic: One central point simply escapes...

    On Tuesday, a unanimous three-judge panel of the US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia ruled that Americans born in Jerusalem cannot put Israel as place of birth on their birth certificates. Judge Karen Henderson wrote that the president exclusively holds the power to determine whether to recognize a foreign sovereign, and that the president had not recognized Israeli sovereignty over Jerusalem. Congress passed a law in 2002 dictating that Americans living in Jerusalem could label their childrens birthplace Israel, but the State Department has refused to enforce that law for over a decade. Over 50,000 Americans have...

    When analyzing Barack Obamas electoral success a few years back, I pointed out that there was more than white guilt at work. He was, quite frankly, what every good little liberal had always been looking for. Sure, he was black, using that old bigoted one-drop standard, which, curiously, has been embraced by modern black activists. But more specifically he was half black, with Kenyan pedigree, half white and bore an exotic name. He was mentored by a Marxist, mothered by an atheist (when Momma Dunham was actually around), lived in Indonesia and Hawaii, had Muslim influence and black-church conscience. An...

    Original posted at ~~~~~~~~ Gov. Bobby Jindahl is a good, conservative Governor for the State of Louisiana. Unfortunately, similar to Sen. Marco Rubio, Gov. Jindal cannot be classified as a natural-born citizen, and thus he also is not constitutionally eligible to run for President. I know this is a sad thought for conservatives like myself, but if we wish to protect and uphold the Constitution, we must look to history for an explanation. Jindal was born in Louisiana, as his recently released birth certificate attests (below). However, at the time of his birth, both of his parents were recent...

Record levels of immigration are rapidly changing the make-up of the population, figures released by the Organisation of Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) confirmed. Oxford Street London: record levels of immigration are rapidly changing the make-up of Britain's population The last census, six years ago, suggested 4.3 million people in Britain were born abroad.

    When was Chinese civilization born? The origin and formation of Chinese civilization has always been a topic of wide discussion. The Chinese word "long" is an important symbol of Chinese civilization. Wherever there are Chinese communities, there is a "long" history. A sacred symbol of the nation, the Chinese word "long" is completely different from the West's interpretation, "dragon". Long ago a foreign missionary translated "long" into "dragon" by mistake. That mistake has been repeated for 300 years. Now, because of this mistake, some people have proposed abandoning the dragon as the symbol of Chinese civilization and replacing it with...

    On What Day Was Jesus Born? While much of the world celebrates the birth of Jesus Christ on the 25th of December, can the actual day of Jesus' birth be determined from scripture? This question will be explored in some detail, and will yield a result that is quite intriguing. The first passage we will consider begins with the father of John the Baptist, Zacharias: Luke 1:5 There was in the days of Herod, the king of Judaea, a certain priest named Zacharias, of the course of Abia: and his wife was of the daughters of Aaron, and her...

    You were born with your future facial expressions 22:00 16 October 2006 news service Roxanne Khamsi Facial expressions appear to be at least partially inherited, according to a study of blind people and their relatives. Experts say the findings indicate that people do not always learn their expressions for certain emotions by copying the facial quirks they see as youngsters. To understand the nature vs. nurture component of facial expressions, Israeli researchers recruited 21 people who were born blind along with 30 of their relatives. The 51 volunteers were videotaped as they recounted happy, sad and aggravating life experiences,...

    GROVE CITY, Ohio -- A bizarre act of nature was found in Grove City Wednesday -- a kitten was born with two faces. The kitten was born Wednesday morning. It has two mouths that meow in unison, two noses and four eyes that have not opened yet, NBC 4's Mike Bowersock reported. "I was playing outside in the rain. Once I came in, I saw a two-faced cat my mom was picking up. That's how I knew there was a two-faced cat," said Charles Roberts, the cat's owner. Roberts said he hasn't decided on a name for the kitten yet,...

    My column yesterday, "Converts to Terrorism," delved into the issue of converts to Islam who engage in terrorism. Space constraints limited the information I could include, so here, I add to it in three ways: (1) providing names of converts suspected, arrested, or indicted of terrorism but who have not yet either gone into action or been convicted; (2) reviewing the matter of non-terrorist jihadis; and (3) summarizing a French intelligence report on converts to Islam.(1) Yesterday's list included converts who had either engaged in or been convicted of terrorism. That leaves many other converts who have not yet reached...

    Converts to Islam are taking over the terrorist operations previously carried out mainly by Muslim-born immigrants and their children.This was dramatically illustrated when a Belgian convert to Islam, Muriel Degauque, 38, blew herself up near Baghdad on November 9 in a suicide attack on American troops, becoming the first Christian-born Western woman to kill herself for Islamist purposes. And of the fourteen people arrested because of connections to Degauque, half were converts to Islam. In neighboring Holland, a just published government report specifically worries about radicalized converts.Islamist terror organizations particularly prize converts. They know the local culture and blend in....
