112th Congress sworn in, Oath of office, US Constitution, Natural born citizen vs citizen

“Why has Obama, for over 2 years, employed numerous private and government attorneys to avoid presenting a legitimate birth certificate and college records?”…Citizen Wells and millions of concerned Americans

The 112th Congress was sworn in yesterday, January 5, 2011 using this oath of office.

“I, AB, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.”

If any members of Congress do not understand this part:

“support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same;”

Please let us know.

Also, if you do not know the difference between citizen and Natural Born Citizen, and why the founding fathers chose this special clasification of citizen with two US Citizen parents, let us know. We will explain it to you.

John Boehner is sworn in as Speaker of the House. In his speech he dedicates the 112th Congress to following the will of the American People and US Constitution. I heard John Boehner’s speech yesterday after he became Speaker of the House. I smiled then. As I watched the video and listened to his words, I came close to tears myself. Tears are not a bad thing. Apathy is.

  1. ATTN – Today at 10:30 AM on C-span the new 112th Congress will start reading the Constitution. C-span has a call- in period that maybe some of us can respond to. I have a 10am Eye Dr. appointment and so might miss the first part.

  2. Original U.S. Constitution will not be read in entirety on House floor

    If you plan to follow along with your own copy during Thursday’s House floor reading of the U.S. Constitution, you might notice that some members reading aloud are skipping parts of the original document.

    Instead of reading the Constitution in its entirety, House members will read an “amended version” that only includes the sections and amendments that were not changed at a later date. The decision in part will allow members to avoid reading less pleasant sections, like the clause in Article 1, Section 2, which counted black slaves as three-fifths of a person.

    “We’re reading the amended version with all amendments that are currently part of the Constitution,” said Kathryn Rexrode, a spokesman for Virginia Republican Rep. Bob Goodlatte, who spearheaded the reading. “It will not include any amendments that were in the original but later amended.”

    The Constitution contains nine parts that were later changed — including an entire amendment, the 18th, which banned the manufacturing and sale of alcohol — which will be left out of Thursday’s reading. The omitted sections, which do not apply to the 112th Congress, include the so-called “three-fifths clause,” the election of senators by state legislatures and the original process outlined for electing the vice president.

    “We certainly have made changes to the Constitution, amendments to the Constitution that have changed the original writings of the Constitution in a number of respects,” Goodlatte said Tuesday during an interview on MSNBC. “In fact, when we read the Constitution, we will omit those portions that have been deleted by subsequent amendments that were adopted over time.”

    Goodlatte will begin the reading, and both Republican and Democrats have been invited to take turns reading portions of the document. The reading is expected to take about two hours.

    Thursday’s event will be the first time the Constitution has ever been read at such a length on the House floor.

  3. I have more issues w/ Peter Boyles than I care to write now, but he HAS been all over the eligibility issue since 2008. He’s covered the Lakin court martial, two days ago he had Jack Cashill on to discuss obama’s citizenship/parentage.

    Coming up in a few mins. (s/b after 8 am CT) he’s supposed to interview Jeff Kuhner

    If we take BHO Jr. at his word then there is no doubt that he is not a Natural Born Citizen of the United States as required by the Presidential Qualifications Clause of Article II Section 1 Paragraph 5 of the United States Constitution. The Constitution requires that to be the President of the United States, a person must be born in the United States of two parents who are citizens of the United States. By BHO Junior’s own admission his father was a British/Kenyan subject (citizen) at the time of his birth. Thus BHO Jr. is disqualified for the Presidency.

    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.

    “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.”

    There have been innumerable United States Supreme Court Decisions that have referenced Vattel’s Law of Nations as a resource in interpreting the original intent of the Founding Fathers when writing the Constitution.

  5. I just found the oath Obama took the second time with Justice Roberts.

    “I, Barack Obama, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will not support and defend the Constitution of the United States with the aid of all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear false faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, with a mental reservation and for purpose of evasion; and that I will not faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me Allah.”

  7. ms.helga – Reading the Constitution should be a requirement every start of a new Congress.

    What do you think of Andy Martins bid to be the Republican nominee? I would love to see Gov. Jindal run and have Mr. Martin challenge him in court regarding the question of Jindal’s status as a Natural Born Citizen. Martin would definitely have standing and would begin the legal challenges early enough to avoid mootness arguments.

    Good Morning!

  8. Larry Sinclair is busy – God Bless him. From his site:

    With a pending $30 million defamation suit in the United States District Court in the District of Columbia, White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs leaves the White House with a very large target on his back. As will be the case with the impending departure of David Axelrod. Patton Boggs LLP a Washington lobbying Law Firm has with their filing a defamation suit on behalf of Daniel Parisi (right, infamous for another type of White House) guaranteed that Robert Gibbs (above), David Axelrod, Rahm Emmanuel and other Obama cronies will have their phone, text, email and financial records subpoenaed in Parisi et al. v Sinclair et al. should Parisi survive the pending preliminary motions….

  9. Anyone watching C-Span for the reading of our Constitution this morning, please pay special attention to the point when Article II Section I is read. I’d like to know who the reader is, what your impression of that person’s delivery of and reaction to that section is, and what if any reaction of the House members is when that section is read.

    If any of you have a DVR or other recorder and can post here later today, please do so. I will be working out of the office all day today.

    Hmmmm, I wonder if Boehner and Co are setting this up for an all-out political assault on barry. Read this out loud in the presence of House members and C-Span, have a gotcha moment, and open the floodgates wide with a very public hearing that everyone can watch and no one can deny or deflect…….

  10. “We’re making progress on birth certificate”
    by Joseph Farah

    “… And, a few of us in the media, most of them right here at this news agency, have actually been gathering evidence that thoroughly and unequivocally undermines Obama’s official birth narrative.

    Quietly, and without fanfare, the WND team kept this story alive – just as I promised I would. Still, none of these media elitists has bothered to scratch beneath the surface of this story to comprehend the magnitude of deceit that went into Obama’s elevation to what may well be an illegitimate presidency.

    I tell you, it’s not just Obama who is going to pay a price in history for this scandal. All those who aided and abetted him in the media are going down, too.

    Now that this story shows no signs of going away, I think they’re beginning to realize what they missed.”

  11. What just happened in the reading of the Constitution? All I heard was the gavel hitting hard and someone being removed. Does anyone know what that woman was yelling???

  12. truthorfiction

    Presidential Qualifications Clause just read by a Democrat Congressperson. There were shoutouts from the gallery, interrupting the reading. The Acting Speaker (?) made a note of the “disturbance “and asked for those people to be ejected.

    Hopefully there will be report what exactly was shouted out. Whoever that was, I commend them wholeheartedly. Bravo!

  13. Truth…thank you. Can’t wait to find out what was said. I assume the MSM will be mum on it.

  14. truthorfiction

    marmar, I’m sure you are correct about the msm.
    I’m looking foward to seeing a clip of that part. It all happened quickly, but, from what I remember, there were surprised looks on the faces that I noticed. You’d think they would hava anticipated that that might happen. I’m thrilled that that happened!!

  15. yes Truth…it was definately an OMG moment!!! Put a huge smile on my face!!!

  16. BREAKING NEWS, IN RED, ON DRUDGE:

    Protester shouts ‘What about Obama?’ as congressman reads section of Constitution on presidential eligibility…developing…

  17. The lady yelled what about obama!!!!!!!!!!!!! check out drudge

  18. With all due respect to those who are elated over the outburst during the reading of the Constitution, I cannot agree, regardless of what the person said.
    Why? Simply because it is out of order for anyone to so disrupt a congressional session.
    There is a time and place for expressing sentiments publicly and doing so while Congress is in session is simply not the place.
    Folks that do that only bring reproach on their cause, imo. We don’t need that kind of “help”, because it makes people look like kooks regardless of how worthy the reason.

  19. truthorfiction

    It’s on Drudge? Way to go.
    What about Obama!!!!!!!!!!! I have the chills.

  20. truthorfiction

    Cabby, I understand where you are coming from. I normally would agree, as I am a huge rule-follower. In this case, though, I can think of few better places for his ineligibility to be spoken, than in the People’s House. They can ignore it only so long and pretend it doesn’t exist. I refuse to stand by and see those in Congress (both Republicans and Democrats) let our wonderful country be destroyed.

  21. truth…I 100% agree with you…well said!

  22. ‘Birther’ arrested during Constitution reading
    http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2652420/posts

  23. Truthorfiction, I see your point of view, also. Although I don’t agree with the method, it is my prayer that some good will come from it – public awareness, if nothing else. It’s just that if some pressure is going to really be put on Congress in the People’s House, there should be a sizable group, not just one person, and it should be done with a great deal of forethought and impact. Having said that, however, maybe it takes something like this to grab attention and rather than just “keep the ball rolling” instead transform it into a gathering snowball. We’ll see. I expect the LSM to bury the story.

  24. the woman yelled- “except Obama” “except Obama” about 5 times.

  25. Hi Cabby,

    The CONgrASS hasn’t respected the will of the people asking for an investigation of The Won; they deserve no respect in return. They don’t listen to We the People, so this may be the only way: Getting in their damned faces.

    I look at this outburst the same way I looked at the ‘You lie!’ and the ‘Not true!’ comments.

    and I smile…

  26. truthorfiction

    Thanks, marmar.

    Here is the video.

    Sorry, I don’t know how to post a video.

  27. “Reading of the Constitution Interrupted at Article II, Section 1”

    “The female visitor to the chamber shouted that Obama wasn’t eligible. She was removed from the chamber for her illegal outburst.

    [Update: Fox News vaguely mentioned the incident, but neglected to repeat the timing of the incident or the comment made by the woman.]”

    http://jeffersonsrebels.blogspot.com/2011/01/reading-of-constitution-interrupted-at.html

  28. I also smiled when I read the report on Drudge describing the interruption of the reading. I commend her for her courage and honor her for living up to her principles. Everything that causes people to reevaluate the situation is valuable. Everything that points to Mr. Soebarkah as an illegal and a fraud is priceless.

  29. Another new mystery –

    WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE?

    This morning I watching “Morning Joe”(someone has to) and they interviewed Jimmy Wales the founder of Wikipedia. He was celebrating one of its’ anniversaries. Then right after or before they started talking about John Huntsman,Jr as a possible presidential candidate for the Democrat Party. So I wikied up John Huntsman, Jr, and got the following – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jon_Huntsman,_Jr. He was selected and confirmed to be and is the U.S. Ambassador to China by Barack Obama. Now it gets more interesting. His father Jon Huntsman Sr. – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jon_Huntsman,_Sr. – NOW IT REALLY GETS INTERESTING. THIS IS GLENN BECK’S BUD. -http://www.google.com/#hl=en&expIds=17259,17291,17311,27342,27615,27846,27894,27955,28093&sugexp=ldymls&xhr=t&q=Glenn+Beck+%2B+john+huntsman+%2Csr&cp=30&pf=p&sclient=psy&aq=f&aqi=&aql=&oq=Glenn+Beck+%2B+john+huntsman+,sr&gs_rfai=&pbx=1&fp=83f87efc6f926f13

  31. “WE’RE MAKING PROGRESS ON BIRTH CERTIFICATE”

    By Joseph Farah © 2011
    BETWEEN THE LINES
    Published January 06, 2011

    http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=247753

    Excerpts:

    “Now, all of a sudden, as polls continue to show Americans increasingly skeptical about Obama’s birth narrative despite the media’s stonewalling and obfuscating, along comes the new socialist governor of Hawaii who admits the possibility that the release of some actual evidence might indeed quell what is turning into widespread public distrust of both the government and what Rush Limbaugh astutely calls “the state-sponsored media.”

    He says he would like to release the birth certificate – though I doubt he ever will.”

    (snip)

    “The truth is Obama should never have been able to assume office without establishing his constitutional eligibility. The system failed the American people and the rule of law. The media “watchdogs” weren’t just AWOL. They were attacking those actually serving as vigilant citizen watchdogs of the Constitution and the people’s business.”

    (snip)

    “They now admit what was obvious to the vast majority of Americans for some time – that Obama has indeed been concealing his birth certificate. They admit he should be able to defuse this whole controversy with one phone call. They admit they are puzzled as to why he won’t do that.

    Guess what, fellas – that’s just what those you have been vilifying have been saying for the last two years. That’s all they’ve been saying. And, a few of us in the media, most of them right here at this news agency, have actually been gathering evidence that thoroughly and unequivocally undermines Obama’s official birth narrative.

    Quietly, and without fanfare, the WND team kept this story alive – just as I promised I would. Still, none of these media elitists has bothered to scratch beneath the surface of this story to comprehend the magnitude of deceit that went into Obama’s elevation to what may well be an illegitimate presidency.

  32. Consider that Eric Holder spearheaded the pardons of sixteen of the Armed Forces of National Liberation (FALN) terrorists with Bill Clinton’s blessing and against the FBI, law enforcement and Congress because Luis Guitierrez of Chicago, IL, Jose Serrano and Nydia Velazquez of New York were sympathetic to the use of violence by Puerto Rican separatists seeking independence from the United States governmenment, and the outburst of one individual in the gallery today during the reading of The Constitution seems an insignificant event. Just remind critics that if bombing Fraunces Tavern in 1975 killing 4 and injuring 60 and killing police and setting a 100 bombs throughout Chicago, IL and New York from 1970-1980 was a pardonable offense, then surely, this woman’s outburst is paltry in comparison. I ran onto a link to 4 Puerto Ricans discharging firearms in Congress and injuring 5 lawmakers, but I haven’t checked that out yet. So Alinsky your critics with that one and see if they can counter with a rational explanation of why we’d hold one disruptive voice in the gallery to a harsher standard than violent, convicted terrorists who murdered and maimed their fellow Americans in the homeland.

  33. A commenter at obamareleaseyourrecords is claiming the video segment is missing from the official C-Span video library.

    Can anyone confirm?

  34. GBAmerica | January 6, 2011 at 2:53 pm |

    Thank you for posting the Tancredo video. He is absolutely correct about
    BO Jr.

  35. Birthers are being set up for a free fall. Watch as a magical birth certificate will be produced by Hawaii.

    The stage is set. Unfortunately it’s the wrong size and color. Parents don’t have to be citizens. And citizens don’t need to have a certificate. What a candidate needs is to be under the Sole Jurisdiction of the United States in order to avoid a sovereign claim of authority by a foreign power over the Executive Branch.

    Barry already confirmed he was a dual citizen at birth. That immediately scratched him off the list. End of story. I have done more research on this and it is indeed plausable for a child born in the U.S. to be a Natural Born Citizen if no other nation can claim him as a citizen by way of his parents or via foreign jurisdiction.

  36. Breitbart also has the video of the woman who cried out during the reading of the Constitution this am. It sounds like she says, Except Obama! Except Obama! Help me Jesus! Then she says, My name is Theresa. I’d like to say, thank you Theresa. I was hoping that one of the Congresspeople would stand up and ask for clarification when the term Natural Born Citizen was mentioned, but at least somebody spoke out. This story will not go away until it is resolved, and that will send Obama and a bunch of other people to jail. Fingers crossed.

  39. Free Speech | January 6, 2011 at 4:22 pm | ,

    Thanks for the link. I know all to well the true meaning of de Vattel. However, the underlying meaning is less technical and more philosophical. de Vattel’s definition is correct, not because the father passes down citizenship, but because when you are born in a country to which your parents are also citizens, your allegiance is never in question nor in jeopardy.

    Allegiance to a nation has become a lost concept in the U.S. We see it in what we buy, where we send our jobs to, and who we employ. Dual citizens and illegals in the U.S. are running rampid, and we’re seeing a terrible burden applied to our citizens and our nation.

    We need to climb the jet up another 20,000′ and see the big picture, and that picture is “one cannot serve two masters at birth”, regardless as to the technical circumstances behind it. That’s the essence of de Vattel’s definition along with countless other legal “law of nations” scholars of the 18th century with regards to Natural Born Citizenship.

    Rasmussen this week published a poll which begins to answer that question:
    “As a new Republican majority prepares to take control of the House, a new Republican plurality has broadened its advantage since the midterms. In their monthly survey on party affiliation in the general population, Rasmussen shows Republicans with more than a three-point lead over Democrats. The percentage of Republicans has hit a six-year high, while Democrats have plunged to an eight-year low:
    It’s the second straight month that Rasmussen Reports polling has found more people identifying as Republicans than Democrats. Prior to November, that had never happened before.
    Yesterday Gallup joined Rasmussen with grim numbers for Obama Dimocrats:
    “In 2010, 31% of Americans identified as Democrats, down five percentage points from just two years ago and tied for the lowest annual average Gallup has measured in the last 22 years. While Democrats still outnumber Republicans by two points, the percentage identifying as independents increased to 38%, on the high end of what Gallup has measured in the last two decades.
    Kilgore is still selling more snake oil. The Obama nomination gifting “Mistake In ‘08″ will have repercussions for generations not just six years. Unless Obama and his crew of Obaminations are flung into the depths of Lake Michigan the Democratic Party cannot be resurrected and Republicans will have a strong hand to play for generations to come. The only thing Kilgore gets right is stuff we wrote about years ago concerning the census and redistricting,

    “OBAMA ADMINISTRATION PUSHING SHARIA LAW IN KENYA”

    From: http://www.impeachobamacampaign.com/obama-administration-pushing-sharia-law-in-kenya/

    “The Obama administration is now pushing a pro-Sharia constitution in Kenya, over the cries of those in Kenya who see the end of their religious freedom.

    This comes as no surprise to those who know of Obama’s connection to the Prime Minister Raila Odinga. In 2006, as a U.S. Senator, Obama campaigned for his cousin Odinga.

    This video has a good explanation of Obama and Odinga’s connection:

    Odinga, a member of the same tribe as Obama, signed an agreement with Muslims in exchange for their support which promised, among other things:

    “Within 6 months re-write the Constitution of Kenya to recognize Shariah as the only true law sanctioned by the Holy Quran for Muslim declared regions.”

    “Within one year facilitate the establishment of a Shariah court in every Kenyan divisional headquarters.”

    “Popularize Islam, the only true religion, in the Coast and North Eastern Regions by ordering every primary school in Kenya in the regions to conduct daily Madrassa classes.”

    Now that Odinga is in charge, he is making good on those promises, and the Obama administration is once again supporting him.”

    This year, the Obama administration will spend nearly $6 million to restore 63 historic and cultural sites, including mosques and minarets, in 55 nations, according to State Department documents.

    “Thus the only legitimate role of the United States and other governments is ensuring that the August 4th Constitutional referendum in Kenya is free, fair and without violence.

    Under no circumstances should the U.S. government take sides by supporting, facilitating and funding projects designed to identify and motivate votes for either side.

    Yet that is precisely what the Obama Administration has done.

    And because the proposed Constitution significantly alters existing abortion law in Kenya, expending U.S. federal funds in support of the “Yes” campaign is also illegal.”

    Abercrombie is remembering a past that never happened.

    A member of the House’s progressive caucus before his election as governor, Abercrombie has been talking excitedly about the relationship for years, playing John the Baptist to Obama’s Jesus. “Little Barry, that’s what we called him,” Abercrombie told the Chicago Tribune while “recalling his days with Obama Sr. and his future wife, Ann Dunham, at the University of Hawaii.” If Obama were born on August 4, 1961, however, there could not have been many such days.

    As is thoroughly documented, Ann and little Barry were in Seattle two weeks later [after the baby’s birth], where she enrolled at the University of Washington. By the time she returned to Hawaii in late summer or fall 1962, Barack Sr. had left for Harvard for good….

    According to divorce papers filed in 1964, Barack Sr. and Ann married in Wailuku, Maui on February 2, 1961. But one has to wonder whether it was a marriage in anything but name, or whether there was a marriage at all. Obama himself writes in Dreams, “In fact, how and when the marriage occurred remains a bit murky, a bill of particulars that I’ve never quite had the courage to explore.”

    No one attended the wedding — not Abercrombie, not Ann’s parents. In fact, no one in Barack Sr.’s clique seemed to know there was a relationship, let alone a wedding. Neil’s brother Hal never saw Ann and Barack Sr. together. Another clique member, Pake Zane, who had distinct memories of Barack Sr., could not recall Ann at all.
