The Source of Obama’s Presidential Ineligibility
August 14, 2012 1 Comment
America is one of the most magnanimous nations on earth. It was so from the beginning, and that fact was inscribed in the Constitution itself. It provided that if a man met the age and residency requirements, he would be eligible for election or appointment to every office in the land, regardless of where he was born or to whom he was born, -as long as he was a citizen of the state in which he lived.
Everyone who previously had been a subject of one of the 13 colonies became a citizen of the union of the States of America via their new state citizenship which began in July of 1776 when the Declaration of Independence was ratified. So everyone except non-citizens could serve in every office and position in the land, and it didn’t matter how they acquired their citizenship, -whether naturally or by naturalization. As long as they were a citizen when the Constitution was ratified, they could be a representative, a Senator, a Chief Justice, a cabinet officer, a military officer, and even the Commander-in-Chief of the United States military forces (who happened to also be the President).
That was how it was because that was how the Constitution made it to be. But the Constitution had a built-in timer that started ticking from the time it was ratified. It didn’t pertain to anyone except that lone rare individual who might one day find himself faced with the option of running for the office of the President.
That timer involved an expiration situation for all of the citizens of America who were alive when the Constitution was ratified. They, and their children would all be eligible to serve as President, but an iron gate was closing on some of those born after the Constitution was ratified. Some of them were not U.S. citizens at birth because their foreign immigrant father was not a citizen. They drew their nationality from his and so they were not Americans.
That iron gate was a restriction relating to the qualification to be President. It disqualifies anyone who was not a citizen when the Constitution was ratified, -or was born to such a one (one who was not an American when they were born. The timer that started ticking in 1788 when the Constitution was ratified was a biological timer. It set a limit on who could become President after the lives of all living American citizens in 1788 had ended.
When they were all gone, the iron gate closed and no one could become President unless they were born as a natural American citizen. The era in which any male citizen could serve was then over. From that point and forward, only a natural born citizen could be the President & Commander-in-Chief.
So the sons of non-citizen immigrants could not be President, just as the U.S. born sons of foreign representatives, foreign visitors, native Americans, Gypsies, Asians and American women could not be President either.
To Congress, the courts, and the executive branch of the government, it didn’t matter where one was born, but to whom one was born. If one was born to a foreigner then one was not an American. One was a citizen of their father’s nation, a member of his society and tradition, and if that society and tradition was not American then a child born to such a person was not an American any more than his father was an American.
And it didn’t matter that one or more states granted such a “son of the soil” citizenship. The federal government did not recognize such citizenship for federal purposes. Such state citizens were protected by state laws and constitutional protections, and subject to them, as well a federal laws, but the office of the President was neither civil nor a constitutional right, and only those persons recognized as being natural citizens were eligible once the gate of time had closed on the generation that lived when the Constitution was ratified.
Following a Supreme Court opinion a hundred and ten years later (Wong Kim Ark) the federal government was forced to ascribe U.S. citizenship to children of un-naturalized immigrants. That didn’t change what the Constitution required of candidates for the presidency, but it changed the public’s and the government’s perception of what was required to merely be a citizen.
The misconception arose that merely being born within U.S. borders conferred U.S. citizenship, and worse still, that the U.S. citizenship of all persons born in the U.S. was the same, qualitatively, legally, and constitutionally. The first two assumptions are correct, but the last one is patently false. One form of citizenship is newer, (-assumed to be constitutional since 1899) while the other is the oldest form of citizenship in human history, i.e., natural membership via a father who was a member.
So presidential eligibility all boils down to one factor, -a factor over which no one has any control, and that is who one’s father was. George Romney was born to a father who was born in Mexico to parents who were members of a community of American citizens who had emigrated there to escape persecution of Mormons.
He had no control over where his father was born or what nationality he possessed, nor to where he himself was born (the U.S.), just as Paul Ryan and Joe Biden had no control over what citizenship their fathers possessed. Similarly, Barack Obama Jr. had no control over where his father was born or to which nation he belonged, but he, like his opponent, was nevertheless subject to the supreme authority of the Constitution.
Unfortunately, he and his corrupt party chose to completely ignore the Constitution and illegitimately run for, win, and usurp the office of the President in violation of the clear prohibition of the Constitution. It directs that “NO PERSON” shall be eligible except a natural born citizen, which excludes all children of foreigners because they are not natural Americans.
A similar travesty would be the example of allowing the U.S. born son of Osama bin Laden or Ahmedinejad to have command over a squadron of nuclear bombers, or a MIRV equipped nuclear ICBM, or submarine. No crew person who is not a natural born American is allowed anywhere near American nuclear bombs because the absolute loyalty and obedience of children of foreigners cannot be assured.
No sane nuclear nation on earth has any other policy. There is no room for disloyalty, disobedience, or treason when it comes to such enormously destructive weapons. The same goes for guarding the President. Secret Service personnel (who carry loaded weapons) entrusted with that responsibility must also be natural born Americans, -having no direct foreign connection through foreign parents.
That is what the Constitution requires of the President first and foremost, and that is what Barack Obama violates every day that he occupies the presidency. He is far less qualified to be President than every single one of the important people that work under his command in the field of nuclear weapons control and use. He is not qualified to give presidential commands to them, nor to even guard himself.
He is an on-going fraud and an American travesty. A living, breathing violation of the United States Constitution. But the dependent lemming sheeple of the socialist left will do everything in their power to insure that he serves another unconstitutional four years.
If they succeed, we’re doomed to a future far more bankrupt than we already are facing. We’re doomed to a future of deficit spending rocketing to the moon. We’re doomed to ever greater violations of the Constitution, -as bad as or possibly worse than the treasonous ruling by the Supreme Court regarding the unconstitutional health care monstrosity and its totalitarian “individual mandate”.
It’s bad enough that he is unconstitutionally serving as President. He could do that and serve the country admirably, -as might the equally unconstitutional Marco Rubio, but instead his actions and inactions are more likely than not to be bad for constitutional fidelity, rule of law, government transparency, individual initiative, individual freedom, national fiscal responsibility, national energy policy and the Tenth Amendment limitation on federal power.
Let’s work to ensure that sane and constitutional policies find preeminence again in Washington. That’s something we’ve never seen in our lifetimes. What should be normal would truly be revolutionary, and millions of loyalists who support the statist nanny Big Brother government wouldn’t like it one bit. They not only prefer the status quo, they want even more of it, -big government without end until we find that the track ahead of us is gone, -the credit-card trestle spanning the gorge where financial solid ground should be is missing. All of that ground (the wealth of the future as yet non-existent) was removed in order to shore-up the track we are running on today.
Then we’ll fall into the abyss as the whole house of cards crumbles and everything collapses.
