Folks, the story was never about the Birth Certificate. If any of you have read anything I ever wrote, you know that I have been saying for two years…that Obama is NOT an Article II NATURAL BORN CITIZEN and therefore NOT qualified to be POTUS because his father was a British citizenship at the time of his birth.
It always was and should still be about Obama’s Article II Natural Born Citizen status, which he clearly is not.
Our founders understood the definition of an Article II Natural Born Citizen to have come from English Common Law and also from Emer de Vattel writing in the Law of Nations, Section 212 (1758) as a child born in the US to two US citizen parents. This was confirmed by the US Supreme Court in Minor v. Happersett, 88 U.S. 162, 167-68 (1875), which ruling stated:
“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. As to this class there have been doubts, but never as to the first. For the purposes of this case, it is not necessary to solve these doubts. It is sufficient, for everything we have now to consider, that all children, born of citizen parents within the jurisdiction, are themselves citizens.”
The supreme court acknowledged in this decision that the definition of Natural Born Citizen must resort to that of which the framers of the Constitution understood it to be. Any later attempts to redefine the term is contrary to all common law practices and should not be considered legal dogma.
Please, as this story unfolds over the next few weeks and months and into the campaign season, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE keep this mind. The Birth Certificate was a trap and as you can see, easily manipulated. The definition of an Article II Natural Born Citizen is rock solid and legal precedent dictates that we MUST use the definition understood by the framers.
Don’t be fooled by the media. The media, nor the Obama Administration CANNOT be allowed to change the definition of this term. If they can, they can change the definition of ANY term in the constitution. If that occurs, then the Constitution can be reinterpreted mean anything.
This is WHY this is sooo important. Words matter, my friends. Words in legal contracts matter and the definition of those words determines the content of the contract. Change the definition of the words and you change the content of the contract. Change the content of the contract and you have an entirely different contract which can be reinterpreted to mean whatever you wish. If our constitution can be reinterpreted to mean anything, then our God given rights can be reinterpreted into non-existence as well. In fact, this is already happening. Just look at the attempt by many to change the meaning of the Second Amendment!
So, don’t worry about the Birth Certificate. This document will be scrutinized till the cows come home, but it really doesn’t matter in terms of this issue. The fact that our President may have created a document to look like his Long Form Birth Certificate is certainly troubling. But, what matters most is what is most obvious, Barak Obama’s father was a British citizen at the time of his birth and THEREFORE, disqualifies him from being POTUS. Period!
That is what the media and the legal scholars should be focused on. And since they aren’t, we need to give them a little assistance.
Please help spread the word about the definition of Natural Born Citizen!! Let’s not allow this type of mistake (or fraud) to occur ever again!!
All the best and…
