Of all the low down dirty deeds regarding Obama’s citizenship, I had forgotten all about Senate Resolution 511. Before Obama’s www.fightthesmears.com even began to address lurking questions on Obama’s illicit associations with Ayers, Retzko, Wright and the citizenship issue with Berg v Obama at the Supreme Court or Donofrio v Wells scheduled for a SCOTUS conference on December 5, 2008, was SR 511.
What started out as an effort to put to rest any objection to Senator John McCain’s eligibility to become our nation’s President because he was born outside of the U.S. in Panama, was in fact a preemptive strike to eliminate any claim that Obama might not be a natural born citizen either . A February NY Times article raised the question as to whether McCain, who was born in 1936 on a U.S. military installation in the Panama Canal Zone, satisfied the constitutional prerequisites to become president. Article II, Section 1 of the Constitution requires a president to be a natural born citizen.
“There are powerful arguments that Senator McCain or anyone else in this position is constitutionally qualified, but there is certainly no precedent,” Sarah H. Duggin, an associate professor of law at Catholic University who has studied the issue extensively, told the NYT. “It is not a slam-dunk situation.” http://blogs.wsj.com/law/2008/04/11/clinton-obama-agree-mccains-a-natural-born-citizen/.
SR 511 is Constitutional Resolution that got slam dunked when it passed in April of this year (08). Obama’s congressional supporters – including Gov. Claire McCaskill (D-MOi), Senator Patrick Leahy (D-VT), Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL) Sen. Tom Coburn (R-OK), Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-NY), and Sen. James Webb (D-VA) –proposed and passed a Resolution (S.Res.511) entitled: Recognizing that John Sidney McCain, III, is a natural born citizen. http://www.opencongress.org/bill/110-sr511/text.
S. Res.511 clearly states that “…Whereas the term `natural born Citizen’, as that term appears in Article II, Section 1, is not defined in the Constitution of the United States…”
Whereas, a natural born Citizen is not defined? Hold your horses there and re-read. Natural born citizen is not defined. Hmmmmmmm? The bill states, ” Whereas previous presidential candidates were born outside of the United States of America and were understood to be eligible to be President…” This piece of legislation was introduced, written and passed clearly with intent to extend the meaning of the Constitution, and prior to SR 511 there was no presidency in Congress.
Mrs. Clinton’s support and co-authorship of this bill, even though they were battling in the primary election for the presidency, was so incredibly strategic and manipulative on Obama’s part that it borders on absolute fraud. The bill completely attempts to redefine his citizenship and will try to keep him eligible, constitutionally as the 44th President, even after he finally shows his Official Vault Birth Certificate.
Do you honestly think Obama wants Hillary Clinton to act as his Secretary of State? Obama owes Hillary big time for sponsoring SR 511, and her nomination as SOS is payback. He will put up with her, and torture her until he can no longer stand it or she will, herself – resign from the position.
The Supreme Court may seek to grant Donofrio, Berg, and maybe even Keyes, a day in court and America may finally come to know the truth on Obama’s birth certificate. It has been alleged his birth is in Kenya, he lost his citizenship in Indonesia, his mother was a minor when she gave birth, his dad was Frank Marshall, he is an illegal alien, blah, blah, blah- according to SR 511- the Democrats would have us believe Constitution was tossed by the wayside and no matter.
Alas, in truth, “Simple resolutions do not require the approval of the other house nor the signature of the President, and they do not have the force of law.” http://www.senate.gov/legislative/common/briefing/leg_laws_acts.htm#4
Whether or not we are ever witness to his birth certificate, the facts are fuzzy and circumspect that Obama may not be qualified to hold any office in the United States. Would any elector who now votes for Obama may be found guilty of treason?
The Electoral College meets on December 15, 2008 to issue an official election determination. The members of Congress who have sworn to uphold the U.S. Constitution and its laws – including the citizenship clause, will vote in January to either confirm or reject the vote of the Electoral College but Electors are not bound to cast their vote for the candidate presented. “Faithless Electors” are members of the Electoral College who, for whatever reason do not vote for their party’s designated candidate. Since the founding of the Electoral College, there have been 156 faithless Electors. http://www.fairvote.org/e_college/faithless.htm Undoubtedly a faithless elector would run risk of censure and other political retaliation from his party. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Faithless_elector Can we depend on Joe Lieberman stand up again for what is right? What one member of Congress has enough balls to stand up to question that the basic constitutional requirements for office have been met? There is something totally wrong with relying on a Constitutional Crisis to satisfy our laws on eligibility. http://www.ziitrend.com/predict/on/any_faithless_elector_s_in_2008_2008-11-04 is where you can vote or following the voting on whether or not there will be a Constitutional Crisis at all. With 63% accuracy in the past, the current prediction is 70% favorable for a crisis.
Three is little doubt intelligence has been keeping a watchful eye court proceedings. Would there be peaceful noncompliance, civil disobedience, Martial Law?
This is not the change anyone had hoped for from Obama.
God Bless America.
