Our Congress worked diligently to change our Constitution’s Natural Born Citizen Clause and failed eight times between 2003 and 2008 – all in an effort to pave the way for their rising star, and unconstitutional candidate, Barack Obama. Fortunately, others in Congress worked just as diligently to kill the legislation, but have remained silent on other issues of Obama’s standing. I hope you listen to the most disturbing portion of the video at about 8 minutes-in, about the Supreme Court. If Congressman Dana Rohrabacher is your representative, please look below for the question I hope you will ask him.
Those attempting, through legislation, to change the Natural Born Citizen Clause (World Net Daily):
- June 11, 2003, Rep. Vic Snyder, D-Ark., broughtHJR 59.It was intended to “permit persons who are not natural born citizens of the United States, but who have been citizens of the United States for at least 35 years, to be eligible to hold the offices of presidentandvicepresident.”
- Sept. 3, 2003, Rep. John Conyers, D-Mich., brought HJR67, which would have done the same as Snyder’s, only the requirement to be a citizen was lowered to 20 years.
- Feb. 25, 2004, Sen. Don Nickles, R-Okla., brought S.B. 2128 to “try to counter the growing Democrat onslaught aimed at removing the natural born citizen requirement.” But it defined NBC as someone who was born in and is subject to the United States,” which was not the understanding of the framers of the Constitution.
- Sept. 15, 2004, Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, R-Calif., brought HJR 104,“to make eligible for the office of president a person who is not a natural born citizen of the United States but has been a United States citizen for at least 20 years.”
- Jan. 4, 2005, Conyers, D-Mich., HJR2, the same as Rohrabacher’s.
- Feb. 1, 2005, HJR15, Rohrabacher, to require only 20 years citizenship to be eligible for the office of president.
- April 14, 2005, Snyder, HJR42, requiring 35 years’ citizenship.
- Feb. 28, 2008, Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., tried to attach to SB 2678, Children of Military Families Natural Born Citizen Act, an amendment clarifying what “natural-born citizen” includes. Obama and then-Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., were sponsors.
After Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama issued their non-binding resolution stating that John McCain was a Natural Born Citizen (which was never in question), there was language in that statement that Congress continually uses to prop-up Obama’s legitimacy:
Whereas the term natural born citizen as that term appears in Article II, Section 1, Clause 5 is not defined in the Constitution of US…”
Congress has decided that the U.S. Constitution does not define Natural Born Citizenship. Did you know that? So who does? Friends, they are getting away with this unbelievable subversion of the Constitution and the Supreme Court is helping them!
At 7:20mins-in: Just a few days before Obama is sworn into office, Obama meets with Supreme Court Justices, 8 out of 9 of them, in a closed session meetings. This was done while there were now cases pending before the Supreme Court concerning Obama’s eligibility. Justice Samuel Alito was strangely missing. There were no reporters and attorneys invited on behalf of the plaintiffs who had cases pending. Neither the Supreme Court nor any other federal court, or any court for that matter, has heard a single case on merit concerning Obama’s citizenship challenge.
Not a single expert has come forward to proclaim Obama’s latest birth certificate legitimate. This World Net Daily article goes over the lingering questions and quotes Michael Isikoff, a well-known NBC News investigator:
Perhaps most significant, two weeks before Obama finally released his “long-form birth certificate,” Hawaii’s former Health Department chief Chiyome Fukino – the one official who claimed to have examined Obama’s original birth document – was interviewed by NBC News’ national investigative correspondent Michael Isikoff, who reported that Fukino told him she had seen the original birth certificate and that it was “half typed and half handwritten.”
In this video, you see Republican Congressman Leonard Lance (R-NJ) in a Townhall, asked what he would do if he believed Obama was unconstitutionally in office. He first says, Lance’s only answer is that he wants to focus elsewhere. Twice he asked, and twice he answers the same.
In the same article, you will read that Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) told a constituent he believed Obama met requirements as “set forth by the U.S. State Department!!! (not the Constitution).
The same article says the Congressional Research Services has issued a memo to Congress, instructing them on how to stand-up for Obama’s eligibility.
There is only one way the American people has allowed these attempts to change the Constitution’s natural-born requirement, and that is by electing Democrat Socialist/Communist-leaning to Congress. Via Doctor Bulldog & Ronin, comes this from Canada Free Press:
Conyers’ congressional office manages an Arabic version of his official website. Reportedly he does the bidding of these inner-city constituents and the militant Islamist activists who feed off them.
They want to squash the Patriot Act and put a leash on the FBI agents, including stopping them from profiling Muslim suspects in terror investigations. They also want to end the use of undisclosed evidence against suspected Arab terrorists in deportation proceedings even if they are in the country illegally. And the 77-year-old Conyers has vowed to deliver those changes for them.
In January 2003 he was the only member of Congress to speak before, and lend his prestige to, an anti-war rally organized by the Marxist-Leninist, pro-North Korean front group International A.N.S.W.E.R. (Rep. Rangel also addressed the rally but not in person — via a letter read by another speaker.) Conyers embraced his comrades in this group with the same enthusiasm and support he gave during the Cold War to the Soviet-backed World Peace Council.
In a New York Times opinion piece he co-authored with Marcus Raskin, co-founder of the extreme left-wing think-tank the Institute for Policy Studies (IPS), Conyers asserted that “government’s responsibility is to revitalize the nation’s economy through creative forms of public ownership” — in other words, through socialism.
As I reported earlier on these pages, Rep Conyers is the highest ranking politico working to free Mumia Abu-Jamal, the convicted murderer of a Philadelphia police officer. Conyers has been a National Executive Board member of the National Lawyers Guild (NLG), which was originally created as a Soviet front and still embraces its Communist heritage.
Conyers is one of the top recipients of donations from the Arab-American Leadership PAC. And not surprisingly, he has a long history of pandering to Arab and Muslim voters, according to Investors Business Daily.
During the first Gulf War, for instance, Conyers fought FBI outreach efforts in the Arab and Muslim community in Detroit that were designed to gather intelligence on potential cells and protect the home front. Conyers and other Detroit-area Democrats at the time, David Bonior and John Dingell, threatened to hold hearings unless the FBI stopped counterterrorism interviews.
The FBI met with them privately to explain the national security benefits of outreach, but could not allay their concerns. In the end, the FBI backed off. Today, Hamas, Hezbollah and the Al-Qaeda-tied Muslim Brotherhood are all active in the area.
Conyers bears the distinction of being the Congressman who has missed more votes than any other Congressman.
Rep. Vic Snyder did not stand for election in 2010. He was succeeded in Arkansas’ 2nd District by Republican Timothy Griffin.
Sen. Clair McCaskill’s 2678, said any child born to “any” U.S. citizen while serving in active or reserve components of the Armed Forces, would automatically be a natural born citizen of the U.S. What can we say about Sen. Claire McCaskill? She has a large military presence in her state of Missouri, but I think it safe to say, the majority of our military will not want a non-natural born citizen eligible for the presidency.
If Dana Rohrabacher (California District 46) is your representative, please call his office and ask what the heck he was thinking, and does he still, today, believe a president should be eligible for office after coming to this country from elsewhere, and living here only 20 years. (Areas included in District 46: Huntington Beach, Costa Mesa, Fountain Valley, Seal Beach, Avalon, Rancho Palos Verdes, Rolling Hills, Palos Verdes Estates, Rolling Hills Estates and portions of Long Beach, Westminster, Santa Ana and San Pedro.)
Remember that Obama has spent MILLIONS to successfully block ALL of his identifying records. Elections have consequences, and those consequences must come down on the side of constitutionality. In particular, we must pay attention to the Senate races in 2012. They may well be a critical as replacing the presidency.
