    [snip]...Jablonski remained true to his word -- neither he nor Obama showed up for the January 26 hearing. I noted last week that Obama was not scheduled to be anywhere near Atlanta on the date of the hearing, although I had wondered if still, perhaps, Georgia might be on his mind. According to reports in the blogosphere, the president's schedule on the morning of the 26th was open, and according to an unnamed source, Obama watched the live feed of the hearings. Perhaps Obama, as well as the several mainstream media news outlets I spotted at the hearing, were merely...

    Las Vegas 1 January 2011 (sic). President Obama has(sic) had a dream run to the White House and hopes to remain there for another term. His chances of re election are diminished by his failure to convince Americans that he is entitled to the office he holds. There are many Americans who are concerned that Barack Obama is not who and what he says he is. Veterans like Robert Laity are frustrated that media outlets have not pressured President Obama into releasing a real authenticated copy of his birth certificate. There appears little doubt that Barack Obama was born in...

    AFP on Yahoo ^ | 9/18/08 | AFP
    WASHINGTON (AFP) – A record number of people, some 1.4 million, rushed to become naturalized US citizens in the 2007 fiscal year before a hike in fees was introduced. US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) said Wednesday that in 2006 some 730,000 people became naturalized citizens. The Immigration Policy center said the doubling of the figures was due to several reasons, but mostly because from August 2007 the cost of the application process rose some 80 percent to around 675 dollars. In July 2007, just a month before the new charges came into effect, there were some 450,000 applications compared...

    100-plus give a lesson in free speechBy John Henderson jhenderson@dailyprogress.com Published: July 5, 2008While thousands flocked to hear President Bush speak at Monticello on Friday morning, Dana Palmer stood by the side of Route 20 dressed like Lady Liberty to teach her kids a lesson in free speech. Palmer, her husband and their two children were among more than 100 people to protest Bush’s visit to Monticello with homemade signs, costumes, expressive T-shirts and their voices. Palmer wore bright green robes, a foam crown and had her face painted white to represent “the death of liberty,” while her husband, dressed...

    Sixty-three soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines, serving the U.S. government but not yet recognized by it, lined up on the steps of the Triangle's new immigration office Friday, ready to swear an oath to their adopted country. A breeze ruffled a high-flying flag and morning sunlight glinted off brass buttons as Jonathan Scharfen, acting director of the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, led the candidates in their oath. With traffic rumbling down Interstate 40 and the smell of pizza wafting from a restaurant next door, the somber-faced service members forsook foreign princes and potentates and promised to defend the U.S....

    WASHINGTON, July 4, 2006 – A former illegal alien from Iran who now is an American citizen is showing his love and appreciation for what his adopted country has done for him by building a memorial to honor servicemembers who have died in the global war on terrorism.

    Feds Indict 2 in Missile-Smuggling Scheme 47 minutes ago LOS ANGELES - A federal grand jury indicted two men Wednesday for allegedly conspiring to smuggle surface-to-air missiles into the United States for use abroad. Such missiles are designed to bring down aircraft. The U.S. attorney's office said the charges marked the first time a 2004 anti-terrorism law has been used. The law calls for a mandatory minimum sentence of 25 years and the possibility of life in prison without parole if convicted. Chao Tung Wu, 51, and Yi Qing Chen, 41, are naturalized U.S. citizens born in China, authorities said....

    The Voting Rights Act of 1965 was supposed to end the practice of subjecting black voters to literacy tests, poll taxes and intimidation. But one civil rights leader said the use of photo identification requirements in some states is a giant step backwards. U.S. Rep. John Lewis, a Georgia Democrat who marched for civil rights with Martin Luther King, Jr. in the 1960s, told Cybercast News Service that legislation recently passed in his home state requiring voters to provide photo IDs "is going back almost to the literacy tests; to tell people you must prove who you are [to polling...

    AL TAQADDUM, Iraq(June 24, 2005) -- At 21 years of age Zuzana Drahosova left her native country of Slovakia for America. Focused on a better life, she had the U.S. Navy in mind. After paying for an extension on her visa, Drahosova had $80 to her name and began working three jobs trying to build up enough money to survive and eventually obtain a “green card” so she could enter the military service. “It was tough,” said Drahosova, who called Pensacola, Fla., home at the time. “The first year I lived in America I worked all the time. I never...
  • Hatch Wants Naturalized Citizens to Be Eligible for Presidency

    C-SPAN "Washington Journal" | 08-19-03 | Theodore R.
    On Tuesday's C-SPAN "Washington Journal," hosted by Paul Orgle, it was noted that Senate Judiciary Chairman Orrin G. Hatch, R-UT, favors legislation that would permit a naturalized citizen of at least 20 years to seek the presidency or vice presidency as well. Hatch is said to think it discriminatory that the Constitution limits the two highest offices to "natural born" citizens. Hatch's proposal presumably would require a constitutional amendment. However, the report seemed to say (and I could have missed the essence of it) that Hatch thought he make an end run around the Constitution with legislation. Similarly, liberals who...

    The F.B.I.'s highest-ranking Arab-American agent has filed a racial discrimination lawsuit against the bureau, charging that he was kept out of the investigation of the Sept. 11, 2001, hijackings because of his ancestry. The agent, Bassem Youssef, filed the lawsuit on Friday in Federal District Court for the District of Columbia. Mr. Youssef, a naturalized American citizen born in Egypt, said in his complaint that "no other non-Arab F.B.I. employee with similar background and experience was willfully blocked from working 9/11-related matters."
