    From the linked article - "Meyer was mysteriously killed in October of 1964."

    She was killed just three weeks after the release of the Warren Commission Report, and after stating that she disagreed with it's findings. A little more than just 'mysteriously', I would say.

    When shared in Facebook, the title was changed! The only reason for this, that I can see, is to twist public position toward their political position. This is the kind of crap that people need to know about!

    This is excellent news for Trump.

    It's fair to consider Clinton the incumbent, and Trump the challenger, and according to the 'Incumbent Rule', undecided's will break for the challenger - that would put Trump ahead in a normally safe Democrat state.

    If Sanders is the nominee, he may handily win states in the Northeast, but those states are safe Democrat state anyway, Sanders can not win a single swing state. Why? According to a national Gallop poll last year (, 50% would not vote for a socialist - the least appealing in the list. Only 47% (59% of Dem, 49% Ind, 26% Repub) would consider voting for a socialist, and since the vast majority of those 47% already live in safe Democrat states, that doesn't leave nearly enough voters in the swing states for Sanders to win.

    The woman responsible for birth certificates in Hawaii died in an airplane crash into the sea a mile off the coast of Oahu. She had just approved the Obama birth certificate. She was the only person to die out of a dozen passengers on the plane. Hmmmmm.

    Actually, she didn't die in the plane crash - she got out of the plane, and others said she appeared fine - she died floating in the water, in her life jacket.

    The captain of the plane expressed complete shock when he found out she had died, because he had checked, and made sure everyone was OK when they exited the plane.

    Some have speculated that she was actually poisoned, and that the crash was staged to cover it up.

    Also, she is the only one in the position to undeniably state whether the original BC is in Hawaii, and what type of BC it is, because she was the one who would have taken it from the vault, and created the certified copy.

    Not much drama here. Will be a 4-4 ruling, meaning Obama can continue to run riot over the Constitution. Hillary would just extend Obama’s policies.

    Actually, a split ruling, affirms the lower court ruling, but does not establish precedent.

    The 5th circuit ruled in favor of the States, and the federal government appealed to the SCOTUS - that means the the ruling of 5th circuit, that blocked Obama's executive orders on immigration, will be the law of the land.

  • Texas Attorney Files Eligibility Lawsuit Against Ted Cruz…

    MMaschin to traderrob6
    The fact that it was removed is accurate, the reason for that is quite speculative.

    You stated in an earlier post that the Nationality Act of 1790, which declared children born abroad to US Citizen were 'natural born Citizens' of the United States -
    "This precedes your court case by some 100 years and certainly illustrates with clarity the mindset of the framers concerning this very issue.."

    I'm simply stating the same. Since the Nationality Act of 1795 removed the text that declared children born abroad to US citizens to be 'natural born Citizens', that it "illustrates with clarity the mindset of the framers concerning this very issue" - that they did not consider such children 'natural born Citizens'.

    Bears repeating:

    “Additionally, the first Congress of the United States passed the Naturalization Act of 1790, just three years after the Constitution was written, which stated that children born abroad to U.S. citizens were, too, natural born citizens. Many members of the inaugural Congress were also authors of the Constitution.”

    This precedes your court case by some 100 years and certainly illustrates with clarity the mindset of the framers concerning this very issue..

    And those same framers repealed the Naturalization Act of 1790, and passed a new act - Naturalization Act of 1795, which removed the text that had declared children born abroad were 'natural born Citizens'. Below is a link to the law.

    SEC. 3. And be it further enacted, that the children of persons duly naturalized, dwelling within the United States, and being under the age of twenty-one years, at the time of such naturalization, and the children of citizens of the United States, born out of the limits and jurisdiction of the United States, shall be considered as citizens of the United States: Provided, That the right of citizenship shall not descend to persons, whose fathers have never been resident of the United States: Provided also, That no person heretofore proscribed by any state, or who has been legally convicted of having joined the army of Great Britain during the late war, shall be admitted a citizen as foresaid, without the consent of the legislature of the state, in which such person was proscribed.

    Notice it clearly states that such children, born to Citizens abroad, are 'citizens', and NOT 'natural born citizens'. Why? Did they want to make sure that no such children would end up being President? I don't think so. The reason, that I think, they removed the 'natural born citizen' text, is because they realized that they didn't have the authority leave it in. Being 'natural born' is an element of natural law, and no man is capable of changing the laws of nature. So they revised the text, to what they were capable of, and declared that children, born out of the jurisdiction of the US, to Citizens, would be 'naturalized', and not 'natural born', Citizens.

    The only alternative would be that someone would have to be born on this soil to be considered “natural born” So if say you went on vacation abroad or down to Tijuana for a weekend and your wife gave birth you would have to have your child “naturalized’” because they wouldn’t be considered “natural born”

    That’s ridiculous on it’s face. And what makes this entire discussion rather silly.

    The Constitution gave Congress the authority over naturalization.

    The Congress shall have Power To...establish an uniform Rule of Naturalization.... Article I, Section 8, Clause 4

    All Citizens are either 'natural born' or 'naturalized'. Congress has written laws governing naturalization. 'Naturalization' is not a process that one goes through which requires a test, and ends with an oath, it means to be granted Citizenship by a man made law (according to the Constitution, an act of Congress), and not by natural law.

    If my pregnant wife leaves the country, and my child is born in a foreign country, my child will automatically become a US citizen, because Congress has included that situation in it's "Rule of Naturalization". My child would be a naturalized US citizen, and not a natural born US citizen. He/she will have all the same benefits as any other Citizen, EXCEPT for being eligible to run for the office of President.

    Correct. And after he's in, the issue become in legal parlance "moot". That means that the court will not address it, because they determine that there is nothing they can do to correct the situation.

    That is what the courts did with Obama. The liberal judges did so because they didn't want to hurt Obama, and the conservative judges did because they were afraid of being called 'racist'. Neither of these will apply to Cruz. I expect that plenty of judges will take up this issue. And a number of liberal judges will determine Cruz to be ineligible.

    He could win

    The core of the Democratic party, the blue collar, union workers, only want 'free stuff' for themselves. If they honestly believe that he will be diverting THEIR free stuff money, to others, he will lose their supply.

    I really don't think that moderate Democrats will support an idealistic socialist. They will support him if they think he's only saying it to get elected (like Clinton), but if they actually believe him, they won't, because that would be giving up money that they feel entitled to.

    No - it's not.

    Do people honestly believe that liberal activist judges are going to avoid the argument the way that conservative judges have?

    1) The Republicans, and conservative judges avoided the issue out of fear of being called racists, liberal judges do not have that concern.
    2) Obama provided a birth certificate showing that he has born in the State of Hawaii.

    All a liberal judge has to do is cite SCOTUS precedent of Minor v. Happersett . In this case, a women in Missouri sued the SOS of Missouri demanding the right to vote, because voting was a right of Citizenship, and the 14th Amendment made her a US Citizen.

    "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. Some authorities go further and include as citizens children born within the jurisdiction without reference to the citizenship of their parents."

    So, the court determined that Minor did not become a US Citizen as a result of the adoption of the 14th Amendment, because she was already a citizen, because she was what the Constitution recognized as a "natural-born citizen", explicitly, because she was born in the US to two US Citizen parents.

    Some argue that the above is not precedent, and was merely dicta, but that is clearly not the case. How is that known? Because the SCOTUS cites that part of the ruling in another case it heard - Ex Parte Lockwood. In Minor the SCOTUS construed the legal term-of-art natural-born Citizen, and in Ex parte Lockwood the Court cites it;

    "In Minor v. Happersett, 21 Wall. 162, this court held that the word 'citizen' is often used to convey the idea of membership in a nation, and, in that sense, women, if born of citizen parents within the jurisdiction of the United States, have always been considered citizens of the United States, as much so before the adoption of the fourteenth amendment of the constitution as since; but that the right of suffrage was not necessarily one of the privileges or immunities of citizenship before the adoption of the fourteenth amendment, and that amendment did not add to these privileges and immunities. Hence, that a provision in a state constitution which confined the right of voting to male citizens of the United States was no violation of the federal constitution."

    If the above Supreme Court precedent is not enough, then in order to dispel the myth that "Citizen at birth" equates to "natural-born Citizen", all you need to do is look at the rules of Constitutional construction, and the principle of verba intelligi ut aliquid operantur debent - words should be interpreted to give them some effect. If the two terms above were equal, then there would be no meaning giving effect to the word 'natural', therefore the definition would not be valid. The writers clearly intended for the word to have some meaning, otherwise it would not be there.

    The word 'natural', in the term-of-art 'natural born Citizen' is a reference to 'natural law'. Natural law is law that exists without 'positive law' (written laws created by governments). So, the term 'natural born Citizen' means exactly this - someone who would still be a Citizen without need of any positive (man made) law.

    The framers relied heavily on Vattel and his The Law of Nations when creating the Country. Ironically this is the book that a few years back there were a number of stories that George Washington never returned to the library.

    § 212. Citizens and natives.
    The citizens are the members of the civil society; bound to this society by certain duties, and subject to its authority, they equally participate in its advantages. The natives, or natural-born citizens, are those born in the country, of parents who are citizens. As the society cannot exist and perpetuate itself otherwise than by the children of the citizens, those children naturally follow the condition of their fathers, and succeed to all their rights. The society is supposed to desire this, in consequence of what it owes to its own preservation; and it is presumed, as matter of course, that each citizen, on entering into society, reserves to his children the right of becoming members of it. The country of the fathers is therefore that of the children; and these become true citizens merely by their tacit consent. We shall soon see whether, on their coming to the years of discretion, they may renounce their right, and what they owe to the society in which they were born. I say, that, in order to be of the country, it is necessary that a person be born of a father who is a citizen; for, if he is born there of a foreigner, it will be only the place of his birth, and not his country.

    I believe there is a 100% chance that a liberal judge will rule him ineligible. They will argue that since Obama was born in Hawaii, and his mom was a Citizen, he fits the definition, but since Cruz was born in Canada, he does not.

    The above is not what I want to see happen, but as conservatives we do not have 1) the race card to avoid scrutiny, and 2) the media to bury it's head in the sand. If Cruz runs, and gets the nomination, you will first see legal analysts on every liberal news outlet citing the above cases, and declaring him ineligible. And then a liberal judge will rule that yes, he is ineligible.
  • Kentucky Man Had Right to Shoot Down Drone, Judge Rules

    MMaschin to Mr. K
    This is from the original story, and explains how the shot could have been easily accomplished -

    I didn't shoot across the road, I didn't shoot across my neighbor's fences, I shot directly into the air.

    The downward force of gravity is a major factor in the spread of shotgun shot. Not all shot will be of the same velocity, and slower shot will drop faster. If you shoot straight up, then the slower shot will still drop, or slow, but it will still be on line.

    So, if the shot was straight up, and the drone was hovering, the shot would have been much easier, even at a distance, with a shotgun vs a rifle.

    In the article there is a picture of Obama with his grandparents. I always hate seeing it, it’s such an obvious photoshop. Whoever created it was a complete idiot, but the Obama campaign still decided to use it. I have no idea why they created it.

    To see how fake it is, simply try to recreate Obama’s grandfathers left arm and hand. His upper left arm you can see is positioned in a downward position, and the hand is about level with his shoulder – above Obama’s left shoulder. This is not possible. Try it, it’s simply not possible. The only way for the grandfathers hand to be where it is, is for his upper arm to be nearly straight out – but it’s not. With the upper arm in the position it is in, it would be possible for his hand to be in a lower position – like on the grandmothers shoulder. Try it.

    It seems fairly obvious that the hand was on the grandmothers shoulder, and it was removed, Obama was photoshoped in, and the hand was placed over his shoulder. Maybe Obama was the one to take the picture. But why in the heck would they photoshop Obama into the picture? And all they needed to do was leave the hand out, and noone would have been the wiser.

    Golan Heights is part of Syria, and has been occupied by Israel since 1967. The Golan Heights is internationally recognized as part of Syria.

    Russia is doing what it needs to do, in order to keep Assad in power, that will form a strong relationship between the two.

    Russia (and Israel) know that the US will no longer come to the aid of Israel. After Assad is secure, Russia will demand Israel return the Golan Heights to Syria. Soon after, the Golan Heights will be full of Russian oil companies.

    Actually they are true radical environmentalists.

    True environmentalists use a equation to quantify humanity's impact on the environment - I(mpact) = P(opulation) x A(ffluence) x T(echnology).

    Based on the I=PAT theory, environmentalists would love to see everyone living in a small urban apartment, taking public transportation, working 2 part times jobs, and too poor to afford children. That is everybody except for them, the enlightened political class.

    The true goal of 'climate change' is a two front attack on the middle class. On one side, it will raise the cost of just about everything, and lead to a much lower standard of living. And on the other side, this lower standard of living, they believe will lead to lower consumption of raw materials. At the same time, they remain completely ignorant of the actual truth, that it has been shown that affluence actually leads to increased efficiency, and lower impact on the environment.

    The irony of the Dope's position, is that while claiming to want to lift up the poor, his position is to create more of them!!!

    There is no plan, other than completely banning private gun ownership, that would prevent this type of shooting.

    What do they think will happen if guns become illegal?! They have already claimed that the border can't be closed. If that's true, and the border can't be closed, how do they plan on keeping illegal guns out of the hands of criminals?

Just as a single virus or bacteria, that works its way into the body, can kill the body, a single individual can kill an organization if they work there way into the inside. And with our society moving towards not allowing organizations to defend themselves against those they do not agree with (or be classified as 'haters'), this is going to happen more often.

    The ADL has freedom of speech too. But it’s a fact that the Gospels make the Jews look a lot worse than the Romans in the events surrounding Jesus’ death. I’ve always found it implausible myself.

    Jewish leaders saw Jesus as a threat, the Romans did not.

    Jesus went to the Temple and preached directly against the Jewish leadership. When it came to the political leadership of the Romans, Jesus said "give to Caesar what is Caesar's, give to God what is God's". Jesus had shown himself to the Romans to be solely interested in changing the religious order, not the political.

Part of my job was to create statistics for the Pentagon, and the Congress, on the selection list, compared to the selection pool, the grade, and the Corps as a whole. The only thing I'm going to say is - you are almost right, double what you are thinking, and then you might get close.

    Whites do have one huge advantage over blacks in American society, and that advantage is the lack of an excuse for failure.

    Liberal society is destroying blacks in America by perpetuating (for votes) the myth that blacks can not succeed in America. It's an endless cycle, they tell blacks that racism is the cause of all their problems, and that it will keep them from succeeding. Then, because they believe they can't succeed, they don't even try, and as a result they end up going nowhere, then they blame it on 'racists'.

    The proof of the above is in the numbers. Blacks in America, in every State, in every county, in every school, in every category, underperform every other demographic. Why? Are they not capable? I don't believe that. Is EVERY school in America full of racists? Yeah right. The reason is because they simply do not try. They have been conditioned by the liberal left to believe that success is unattainable - so why should they try?

    Racism is alive and well in America, and it's the liberal left who have enslaved the entirety of the African American community. Why? To garner the black vote to progress their agenda.

    Obama started to work for the Chicago Annenberg Challenge in 1995 (he worked there till 1999).

    The address of the Chicago Annenberg Challenge was 115 South Sangamon St.

    At the time, Bill Ayers worked for the Small Schools Workshop, which was the recipient of the cash that Obama handed out via the CAC. The address of the SSW was - no surprise - 115 South Sangamon St.

    Actually, in my opinion, it’s MUCH more likely that the guy claiming to be Pope, is a freemason.

    Why does this pope hate the poor?

    ‘Environmentalists’ believe in I=PAT – man’s (I)mpact on the environment is equal to (P)opulation x (A)ffluence x (T)echnology.

    Anything that reduces any of those 3 variables, to them, is ‘good’ for the environment. To show this, the pope’s adviser on climate change, Professor John Schnellnhuber, has said that one of great benefits of ‘Climate Change’ is that it shows that the “carrying capacity of the planet, namely below 1 billion people”. He believes that the Earth needs to shed 6 BILLION people!

    What about ‘A’ and ‘T’? Those are harder to quantify, and therefore energy consumption is used as a proxy. Energy is used to create affluence, and technology, therefore the less energy that is consumed, the lower those inputs.

    Environmentalists do not want ‘clean energy’ they want expensive energy. One of the first things Obama’s energy Czar, Steven Chu, said when taking the position, was that we need to find a way to get the cost of gas in America on par with what they pay in Europe, ~ $10/gallon.

    Development is what brings people out of poverty. Environmentalists, like this pope apparently, are against the cheap energy that can lift those in poverty up! Therefore it’s only logical to conclude, this pope hates the poor.

    Why no mention of the killers middle name? Could it be because it's on the list of top hippie baby names?

    It happens to be #46 (in alphabetical order, not popularity) in the list of top baby names. And my guess is that his first name is probably in honor of Bob Dylan.

    I will not be surprised if -
    1) his parents are progressive/liberal/hippies
    2) the media will complete ignore #1

    According to the text messages. One of the lowly employees really hates Tom Brady.

    What's your point? He may have hated him, but he was still getting free stuff from him.

    So, let me get this straight - some lowly employees took it upon themselves to alter game balls, after they were examined and approved by the referees - but neither Brady nor the coaching staff knew anything about it?!

    We all know this to be true - if there were only one Christian baker in the whole state, that’s where the homos would go to demand their “wedding” cake be made.


    Refusing to bake a wedding cake is free exercise of religion, if they refused to bake a birthday cake, that IMHO would be discrimination.

    According to radio talk show host Mike Gallagher, all the other states that have their own version of RFRA, also have anti-gay discrimination laws. Indiana doesn’t have that.

    Are you saying it's not a 'compelling government interest' to protect an individual from discrimination?

    Not having a law specifically codifying discrimination against a particular group does not mean that the state is endorsing discrimination.

    This law in no way allows anyone to use religious freedom to discriminate against anyone else, because the state HAS a compelling interest in stopping such discrimination. This law simply stops the government from restrict religious freedom when it has no compelling reason.

    The Pope will be releasing a fatwa on Climate Change soon, stating that all good Catholics should support the Democrats, in order to save the planet. Or something along those lines. That should get them back into the fold.
