We Obama truth-seekers, whom the MSM deride as “birthers,” are patriots who love and respect the Constitution because it is not just our founding document but the highest law of the land. We fully know how thin and fragile the veneer of civilization is which alone separates us from the maw of chaos and the abyss. It is the rule of law — not of man — that holds civil order and civilization itself together.
To that end, we Obama truth-seekers hold sacred the Constitution’s stipulation of the necessary qualifications for the office of the presidency. Article II, Section 1 says:
No person except a natural born citizen, or a citizen of the United States, at the time of the adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the office of President; neither shall any person be eligible to that office who shall not have attained to the age of thirty-five years, and been fourteen years a resident within the United States.
But the person variously named Barack Barry Hussein Steven Dunham Soetoro Obama has not produced the necessary documentation certifying he is a Natural Born Citizen (NBC). Even leaving aside the matter of his birth place, the very fact that when Obama was born in 1961, his biological father, Barack Obama Sr., was not a U.S. citizen but a British citizen (Kenya being a British colony at the time), would disqualify him. For there is a clear, concise definition of the term “Natural Born Citizen” in Vattel’s Law of Nations which was the principal legal reference book used by the Founding Fathers in writing the Constitution (h/t fellow Free Speech!):
“The natural-born citizens, are those born in the country, of parents who are citizens…it is necessary that a person be born of a father who is a citizen; for, if he is born there of a foreigner, it will be only the place of his birth, and not his country.”
From the beginning — the 2008 presidential year — World Net Daily has waged a tireless battle to inform us about the eligibility issue and sponsoring public campaigns of awareness, including billboards. In that battle, World Net Daily was almost all alone. The liberal MSM ignored, suppressed and mocked us. Even more reprehensible are the news media that are supposed to be “on our side” — FoxNews and its talking heads Bill O’Reilly and Glenn Beck (who called birthers “dumb”) — who also ignored and dismissed us.
Finally, the eligibility question is getting steam despite the concerted media mockery and suppression. Recently, Jeff Kuhner of the Washington Times said that people around the White House, Democratic circles, and the liberal media – including senior top editors — all know there’s something there about Obama’s birth eligibility but are afraid to pursue the matter. Yesterday, a very brave woman single-handedly brought the eligibility question to the attention of the American people when she interrupted the House reading of the Constitution by yelling “Except Obama!” at precisely the point when Rep. Frank Perone was reading Article II, Section I that presidents must be naturally born U.S. citizens in order to be eligible for that office.
The woman, Theresa Cao, 48, was removed from the House by Capitol police, arrested and charged with unlawful conduct and disrupting Congress. She is now released from police custody.
Thank you, Theresa! Chroniclers of our time will record your courage and the name Theresa Cao will forever be remembered.
What a contrast this brave woman is from the spineless newly elected House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio). The Hill reports that in an interview on NBC Nightly News yesterday after “the incident,” Boehner reacted to the outburst and said he believed Obama is a U.S. citizen:
“The state of Hawaii has said that President Obama was born there. That’s good enough for me.”
Boehner is covering his and his fellow political class’s asses. None other than the Congressional Research Office has admitted that Congress failed to vett Obama’s presidential candidacy because no law requires them to do so, conveniently forgetting that the Constitution itself is the highest law of the land. (See also “Obama Eligibility Is Now a Conspiracy“)
Shame on you, Congressman Boehner! It may be “good enough” for you, but it sure ain’t “good enough” for us, the American people!
You keep up your pusillanimous spinelessness and We the People will get rid of you, too.
Count on it.
