“Why has Obama, since taking the White House, used Justice Department Attorneys, at taxpayer expense, to avoid presenting a legitimate birth certificate and college records?”…Citizen Wells
“Moore said he’s seen no convincing evidence that Obama is a “natural born citizen” and a lot of evidence that suggests he is not.”…Judge Roy Moore interview by WND
“And if all others accepted the lie which the Party imposed–if all records told the same tale–then the lie passed into history and became truth. “Who controls the past,” ran the Party slogan, “controls the future: who controls the present controls the past.”…George Orwell, “1984″
Why did WND leave out part of the constitution below:
“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 . . . .”
From WND March 24, 2015.
“Billionaire businessman Donald Trump – who’s recently made moves toward a 2016 White House run – reacted swiftly to Sen. Ted Cruz’s announced presidential campaign kick-off, saying on MyFoxNY the fiery Texan still has a substantial obstacle to overcome: His birth place.
“Well, he’s got, you know, a hurdle that nobody else seems to have at this moment,” Trump said, in reference to Cruz’s Canadian place of birth. “It’s a hurdle and somebody could certainly look at it very seriously. He was born in Canada … if you know … and when we all studied our history lessons … you’re supposed to be born in this country, so I just don’t know how the courts would rule on it. But it’s an additional hurdle that he has that no one else seems to have.””
“Cruz isn’t the only presidential candidate to have his eligibility questioned in regards to birth place. Sen. John McCain, who was born in the Panama Canal Zone while his father served in the military, fought off a brief court challenge to his eligibility to serve as president during his run for the high office in 2008, Politifact reported. And of course, President Obama’s stated birth place of Hawaii has been an item of controversy for years, with many – including Trump, at points – insisting he was born in Kenya.
Section One, Article Two of the Constitution states “no person except a natural born citizen, or citizen of the United States … shall be eligible to the office of president.” But the document doesn’t define “natural born citizen,” and that’s where the differences of opinion arise. The Supreme Court, meanwhile, has never clarified.
“The origins of the Natural Born Citizenship Clause date back to a letter John Jay (who later authored several of the Federalist Papers and served as our first chief justice) wrote to George Washington, then president of the Constitutional Convention, on July 25, 1787,” wrote Sarah Helene Duggin, professor of law and director of the Law and Public Policy Program at Columbus School of Law at Catholic University of America, in a 2013 post for the National Constitution Center.
She went on: “At the time … framers worried about ‘ambitious foreigners who might otherwise be intriguing for the office.’ … [So] the natural-born citizenship language appeared in the draft Constitution the Committee of Eleven presented to the Convention. There is no record of any debate on the clause.””
