  • Ted Cruz: I’m not going to get into a legal debate about whether I’m also a Canadian citizen

    Hotair ^ | 08/20/2013 | AllahPundit
    Oddly enough, per DrewM, the media’s suddenly very interested in this subject and would indeed like to debate it. From where does this newfound respectability for Birtherism spring, I wonder. Byproduct of a typically slow August news month? Or just hassling a conservative with presidential buzz whom they loathe, maybe partly as payback for anti-Obama Birthers hassling Precious for his own birth certificate for so long?Via Mediaite and MFP, here’s Cruz on the radio this morning recusing himself from further debate on the subject. That’s wise, and I agreed with Ed’s take this morning that he was probably just tweaking...

    Via the Daily Caller. I believe him, but if Cruz jumps into the presidential race and starts gobbling up Paul’s support among tea partiers in Iowa, I wonder how many Paul fans — and Hillary fans — will be willing to take a “closer look” at the issue.This wasn’t the only mention of Cruz’s eligibility on CNN yesterday either. They devoted an entire segment to it during Wolf Blitzer’s show, as you’ll see below. Maybe Birtherism is another issue, like aggressive counterterrorism and unilateral executive action, on which the press will take a more respectful, nuanced line now that doing...

    National Review ^ | 05/08/2013 | Ed Whelan
    In one of my first essays for NRO back in 2005 (“Are You an Originalist?”), I selected the Constitution’s “natural born Citizen” criterion for eligibility to be president—a provision that then seemed at the time to be beyond the distorting effects of political bias—to illustrate that everyone intuitively recognizes the common-sense principle at the heart of the interpretive methodology of originalism: namely, that the meaning of a constitutional provision is to be determined in accordance with the meaning that it bore at the time that it was adopted. The public debate in 2008 over whether John McCain, having been born...

Did Obama build his political career on a fairy tale that his father was a Kenyan who grew up herding goats? Was Obama’s goal in writing his autobiography, “Dreams from My Father,” to misdirect Americans away from a deeply disturbing family background and a Marxist political foundation? These are questions filmmaker Joel Gilbert poses in the full-length documentary “Dreams from My Real Father,” which argues Frank Marshall Davis is the president’s biological...

Phillip Berg, a disgruntled Hillary supporter filed the first lawsuit demanding that Obama produce his mysterious birth certificate.

Newt Gingrich used his release of 12 years’ of tax records as an example to push his rival to release his own tax returns. On Thursday night, Romney mentioned the fact that his father was born in Mexico in response to Gingrich’s allegations that he is “anti-immigrant,” which raises the question: If George Romney was born in Mexico, how could he run for president?

Given previous rulings by Judge Malihi in the Obama case, many had assumed things might go badly for the acting president. Yet the judge’s 10 page decision could hardly have done more to accommodate defendant Obama and his attorney, especially in light of their having ignored court orders, subpoenas and the hearing itself. And many of those who have reviewed Judge Malihi’s decision...

So simple that the mystery is deciphered by application of one of the most clear, concise and undeniable rules of law; the code of statutory construction governs, and therefore, “natural born Citizen” must require something more than being born in the United States. Let me put it to you in appropriately simple language:Clause A = “Only a natural born Citizen may be President.”Clause B = “Anyone born in the United...

A hearing has been scheduled later this month for evidence on the issue that has plagued Obama and his presidency since long before he took office. At issue is the constitutional requirement that a president be a “natural-born citizen.” Some allege he was not born in the U.S. as he has claimed and, therefore,...

    Someone was incredibly busy in June 2008 working on an illegal front invisible to the public; searching and altering Supreme Court Cases published at Justia.com which cite the only case in American history – Minor v. Happersett (1875) – to directly construe Article 2 Section 1′s natural-born citizen clause in determining a citizenship issue as part of its holding and precedent. In this unanimous decision, the Supreme Court defined a “native or natural-born citizen” as a person born in the US to parents who were citizens; a definition which excludes from eligibility both Barack Obama and John McCain.

"I am an attorney," he said. "When I undertake the representation of a client, I have to act in the best...

    The Federal Election Commission ruled Friday that a Guyana-born American citizen could file papers and raise money to run for president of the United States. But the agency also told the prospective candidate, Abdul Hassan, that his campaign may not receive federal matching funds because he was not born in America. The FEC’s unanimous vote allows Hassan — who born in the South American country in 1974 — to be a candidate, solicit funds and requires him to file disclosure reports for a presidential bid. However, the agency’s decision stopped short of addressing the constitutional issue of whether someone born...

    When the phrase "The Last Days" is uttered, people often assign different meanings to it. To some, it means the last days of world history, and the literal the End of the World. To others, it conjures up images of the impending demise of the American Experiment. As to the first interpretation, I'll leave that to the sages, the prophets and to God. Regarding the second, the pessimists are entitled to their opinions of course, but that type of thinking is not only counterproductive, it runs counter to the attitude Americans have held since its founding, which is an ideal...

    Uncharted Waters—Ramona Attorney Back in Court Over Obama CitizenshipUncharted legal waters. That's how Ramona attorney Gary Kreep summed up the judicial dilemma surrounding the question of whether President Barack Obama is eligible for his office and how Americans should generally deal with an eligibility issue once a president takes office. On Monday, Kreep and lawyer Orly Taitz of Rancho Santa Margarita once again asked the courts to allow them to present their cases and bring evidence in their fight to show that Obama isn't a U.S. citizen. It's not a simple request. At this stage, the court isn't hearing details...
  • 'Natural-born citizen' info vanishes off Wikipedia In wake of Obama's release of his long-form

    Reference to a key source cited by Founding Fathers in their development of the constitutional qualifications for the presidency is missing from Wikipedia's entry on "natural-born citizenship" in the wake of Barack Obama's release of his long-form birth certificate. Blogger Paul Smith points out that reference to the Swiss legal philosopher Emmerich de Vattel and his seminal definition of natural-born citizenship can no longer be found in the Wikipedia entry. De Vattel defined natural-born citizenship in this 1757 treatise "The Law of Nations" as "those born in the country, of parents who are citizens." The definition is relevant to President...

    Can the "birthers" ever be convinced that Barack Obama was born in America and is eligible to serve as president? Probably not, according to one prominent psychology professor and other political observers. Since Obama launched his bid for the White House, a sizable minority of Americans has expressed strong doubts about whether he was actually born in the United States. Over the past few years, the allegation that he was born overseas -- in Kenya or perhaps Indonesia -- has taken on a life of its own, despite a mountain of evidence to the contrary. [Snip] It remains to...

    Lately, we have been bombarded by various people trying to say what is was/wasn't that Vattel had to say, and whether his opinions mattered or were even known to the founders and early America. So I did a bit of research. Emmerich De Vattel was born 1714 of Swiss parentage. At an early age he became interested in literature and philosophy. Now there are much better and detailed biographies on the web, so I won't bore everybody with all the details I read. Suffice to say he spent many years with positions provided by the courts (the royal courts) and...

    Yeah, Okay, It's Racism, You Liar Dean C. Haskins If there is one thing I have learned since the last presidential campaign, it is that Obama's myriad supporters (common folk) and worshipers (media) are either incapable of, or unwilling to, understand that our forefathers, when framing the Constitution, used a then-commonly-understood term when defining the requirements for holding the office of president; and, because that requirement has never been altered through the process of amendment, nor has the simple, historic definition of the term ever been changed, many of Obama's followers commonly take the path of least intellectual resistance, and...
  • Obama’s Birth Certificate – Case Closed

    04/28/2011 1:57:39 AM PDT · by TLittlefella · 156 replies
    General Trump has accomplished what no others have managed in three years, the release of Obama’s birth certificate. I do not see any incriminating information on Obama’s birth certificate that would indicate he was not born in Hawaii. In fact the certificate is so vanilla looking it leaves me with puzzling questions. Why didn’t Obama release this certificate three years ago? Why has Obama spent a considerable amount of money fighting the release of this seemingly normal certificate? Those unanswered questions will undoubtedly forever haunt many of us. None the less, I now consider the case of his eligibility for...

    What I find so amazing about the "birther bashers" (or "afterbirthers" as I call them) is that they have so little appreciation for the complexity of Obama's citizenship dilemma. They also do not appreciate the trap doors that exist at various points in his life regarding adoption and immigration between countries where he resided. Most of all, though, they don't understand the basic terms that they banter about. In short, Obama's life path is fraught with potentially disqualifying conditions for the office he holds. As a constitutional law instructor, perhaps no one understands these conditions like he does, and that...
