Obama not natural born citizen, The Blaze, Glenn Beck, Call me, Citizen Wells

“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

Glenn Beck stated that he started The Blaze, TheBlaze.com, to counteract misinformation from websites like the Huffington Post. I will not let Beck get away with insulting concerned Americans who question Obama’s eligibility. Especially three star generals.

From the Citizen Wells archives December 28, 2008.

“Why I ask, should not the ‘injunctions and prohibitions’ addressed by
the people in the Constitution to the States and the Legislatures of
States, be enforced by the people through the proposed amendment?” 
“The oath, the most solemn compact which man can make with his Maker,
was to bind the State Legislatures, executive officers, and judges to
sacredly respect the Constitution and all the rights secured by it.”
Rep. Bingham (See Cong. Globe, 39th, 1st Sess., 1090 (1866))

“To understand the intent of the founding fathers in using the words
“natural born citizen”, to define presidential eligibility, one must
first examine any influential documents and opinions from those
involved in crafting the US Constitution. What is clear and indisputable
is the following:

  • A naturalized citizen is a citizen by no act of law such as naturalization.
  • A child born to US citizens on US soil is a natural born citizen.
  • The Naturalization Act of 1790 provided the following:

“the children of citizens of the United States that may
be born beyond Sea, or out of the limits of the United
States, shall be considered as natural born Citizens””

“Vattel’s “The Law of Nations”, written in 1758, was a
valuable reference guide for the founding fathers.

Ҥ 212. Citizens and natives.
The citizens are the members of the civil society; bound to this society by
certain duties, and subject to its authority, they equally participate in
its advantages. The natives, or natural-born citizens, are those born in the
country, of parents who are citizens.”

“Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, Justice John Jay, on
July 25, 1787, wrote the following to George Washington:

“Permit me to hint, whether it would be wise and seasonable to provide
a strong check to the admission of Foreigners into the administration
of our national Government; and to declare expressly that the commander
in chief of the American army shall not be given to, nor devolve on any
but a natural born citizen.””

“The Lightfoot lawsuit in CA states the obvious:

“This letter shows that the meaning of natural born citizen, is one
without allegiance to any foreign powers, not subject to any foreign
jurisdiction at birth.””

“After the US Constitution was written, further
clarifications can be found

“All persons born in the United States and not subject to any foreign
power, excluding Indians not taxed, are declared to be citizens of the
United States.”

1866, Sec. 1992 of U.S. Revised

“every human being born within the jurisdiction of the United States of
parents not owing allegiance to any foreign sovereignty is, in the
language of your Constitution itself, a natural born citizen.””

“Rep. Bingham on Section 1992 (Cong. Globe, 39th, 1st Sess., 1291 (1866))

“Bingham subscribed to the same view as most everyone in Congress at the
time that in order to be born a citizen of the United States one must be
born within the allegiance of the Nation. Bingham had explained that to
be born within the allegiance of the United States the parents, or more
precisely, the father, must not owe allegiance to some other foreign
sovereignty (remember the U.S. abandoned England’s “natural allegiance”
doctrine). This of course, explains why emphasis of not owing allegiance
to anyone else was the affect of being subject to the jurisdiction of the
United States.””

“United States v. Wong Kim Ark, March 28, 1898 Reveals the following:

“Nevertheless, Congress has persisted from 1795 in rejecting the English
rule and in requiring the alien who would become a citizen of the United
States, in taking on himself the ties binding him to our Government, to
affirmatively sever the ties that bound him to any other.”

“It is beyond dispute that the most vital constituent of the English
common law rule has always been rejected in respect of citizenship of
the United States.”

“Considering the circumstances surrounding the framing of the Constitution,
I submit that it is unreasonable to conclude that “natural-born citizen”
applied to everybody born within the geographical tract known as the United
States, irrespective of circumstances, and that the children of foreigners,
happening to be born to them while passing through the country, whether of
royal parentage or not, or whether of the Mongolian, Malay or other race,
were eligible to the Presidency, while children of our citizens, born abroad,
were not.”

“Greisser was born in the State of Ohio in 1867, his father being a German
subject and domiciled in Germany, to which country the child returned.
After quoting the act of 1866 and the Fourteenth Amendment, Mr. Secretary
Bayard said:

Richard Greisser was no doubt born in the United States, but he was on his
birth “subject to a foreign power,” and “not subject to the jurisdiction
of the United States.” He was not, therefore, under the statute and the
Constitution a citizen of the United States by birth, and it is not
pretended that he has any other title to citizenship.”

“And it was to prevent the acquisition of citizenship by the children of
such aliens merely by birth within the geographical limits of the United
States that the words were inserted.

Two months after the statute was enacted, on June 16, 1866, the Fourteenth
Amendment was proposed, and declared ratified July 28, 1868. The first
clause of the first section reads:

All persons born or naturalized in the United States and subject to the
jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State
wherein they reside.

The act was passed and the amendment proposed by the same Congress, and it
is not open to reasonable doubt that the words “subject to the jurisdiction
thereof” in the amendment were used as synonymous with the words “and not
subject to any foreign power” of the act.””

“Perkins v Elg, 307 U.S. 325,328 (1939) differentiates between a US citizen
and a natural born citizen.  Ms. Elg, was born in Brooklyn, NY to an
American mother and a Swedish father was a US citizen, but not a natural
born citizen.”

Kerchner v Obama and Congress, Update, February 23, 2010, Appeal, US 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals, Philadelphia PA, Over Length Appellant’s Brief granted

Kerchner v Obama and Congress, Update, February 23, 2010

From Charles Kerchner, lead plaintiff in Kerchner v Obama and Congress.

For Immediate Release – 22 Feb 2010

There was activity today in the Kerchner et al v Obama & Congress et al Appeal before the U.S. 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals in Philadelphia PA.

The Appellant’s Motion for Leave to File an Over-Length Appellant’s Brief has been granted by Judge Michael Chagares, Circuit Judge, with the U.S. 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals in Philadelphia PA. The Appellant’s Brief is now past that technical hurdle and is thus fully accepted and before that court. This case at the Court of Appeals level will be judged by a three judge panel. You can see a copy of the Motion and the Order granting it at the below link.

You can read the entire Appellant’s Brief at this link:
http://www.scribd.com/doc/25461132/Kerchner-v-Obama-Appeal-Appellant-s-Opening-Brief-FILED-2010-01-19

We say in our original complaint that Obama is not a “natural born Citizen” of the USA and thus is not eligible to serve as President in the Oval Office. Obama is a Usurper and must be removed to preserve the integrity and fundamental law of our Constitution and our Republic.

We say that we Plaintiffs do have standing and the federal courts do have jurisdiction to address the constitutional legal question as to what does the term “natural born Citizen” in Article II mean to “constitutional standards”. All citizens have the inalienable right under the 9th Amendment to stand up to support and defend the U.S. Constitution against usurpation. And Oath Takers such as CDR Kerchner have a duty to do so. The courts have the constitutional power to take and decide this case. It is part of the “judicial review” powers of the federal courts.  It is the courts duty to interpret the Constitution and all terms therein for cases involving the U.S. Constitution brought before it.

“We the People” will be heard on this matter! As the People in Massachusetts have demonstrated, “We the People” are the Sovereigns in this country. The Constitution is the fundamental law of our nation, not Obama, Congress, or the two Political Parties, or the Main Stream Media. We will not be silenced. The chair Obama temporarily and illegally sits in in the Oval Office is not his throne. It is the People’s seat. And Obama despite all his obfuscations to-date must prove to “constitutional standards” that he is eligible to sit in that seat or he will be removed by the People.

This is not going to go away until Obama stops hiding ALL his hidden and sealed early life documents and provides original copies of them to a controlling legal authority and reveals his true legal identity from the time he was born until the time he ran for President.

Obama at birth was born British via his non-Citizen, foreign British Subject father. Obama is a dual-citizen. He holds and has held multiple citizenship during his life-time. He’s been a Citizenship chameleon all his life as the moment and time in his life suited him. While living in Indonesia during his childhood he was an Indonesian citizen. Obama is not a “natural born Citizen” with singular and sole allegiance to the USA at birth and Unity of Citizenship at Birth to the USA as is required per the Constitution per the intent of our founders and framers of the Constitution and the meaning of the term “natural born Citizen” to Constitutional standards. The requirement to be “natural born Citizen” at birth is a national security issue since the President is the commander of our military. That is why the clause was put into the Constitution in the first place. Obama is not a “natural born Citizen” of the USA and is an illegal President and Commander-in-Chief and is a national security risk to this nation.

The next expected activity in the Kerchner v Obama & Congress lawsuit is for the Defendants’ to file their Opposition Brief. The Defendants previously had filed for an extension for more time to file their Opposition Brief, which the court had previously granted. As has been typical, the Obama side continues to stall and delay and obfuscate. They absolutely do not wish this case tried in court on the merits as Obama is NOT a “natural born Citizen” of the USA and that would be easily proven in a Court of law with discovery and presentation of the historical and legal evidence as to what the term “natural born Citizen” meant to the founders and in four U.S. Supreme Court cases.

In the end the truth will be told. It’s only a matter of time and the truth will come out. Obama’s hidden and sealed documents of his early live will be revealed, and he will either resign or be constitutionally removed from the office he illegally sits in. Obama has created a Constitutional Crisis of historic proportions. But We the People will resolve it. History will record Putative President Obama as a disgraceful moment in the history of our great Republic and put a gigantic asterisk after his name. But we will survive it. Our Constitution and We the People will win the day and protect our freedom and liberty for our children, grandchildren, and are great-grandchildren to come. Obama the illegal President will be removed.

Mount Vernon Statement, CONSTITUTIONAL CONSERVATISM, A STATEMENT FOR THE 21ST CENTURY, We recommit ourselves to the ideas of the American Founding, Constitution

Mount Vernon Statement, February 17, 2010.

THE MOUNT VERNON STATEMENT
CONSTITUTIONAL CONSERVATISM:
 A STATEMENT FOR THE 21ST CENTURY
        We recommit ourselves to the ideas of the American Founding. Through the Constitution, the Founders created an enduring framework of limited government based on the rule of law. They sought to secure national independence, provide for economic opportunity, establish true religious liberty and maintain a flourishing society of republican self-government.
        These principles define us as a country and inspire us as a people. They are responsible for a prosperous, just nation unlike any other in the world. They are our highest achievements, serving not only as powerful beacons to all who strive for freedom and seek self-government, but as warnings to tyrants and despots everywhere.
       Each one of these founding ideas is presently under sustained attack. In recent decades, America’s principles have been undermined and redefined in our culture, our universities and our politics. The self-evident truths of 1776 have been supplanted by the notion that no such truths exist. The federal government today ignores the limits of the Constitution, which is increasingly dismissed as obsolete and irrelevant.
       Some insist that America must change, cast off the old and put on the new. But where would this lead — forward or backward, up or down? Isn’t this idea of change an empty promise or even a dangerous deception?
       The change we urgently need, a change consistent with the American ideal, is not movement away from but toward our founding principles. At this important time, we need a restatement of Constitutional conservatism grounded in the priceless principle of ordered liberty articulated in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution.
       The conservatism of the Declaration asserts self-evident truths based on the laws of nature and nature’s God. It defends life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. It traces authority to the consent of the governed. It recognizes man’s self-interest but also his capacity for virtue.
       The conservatism of the Constitution limits government’s powers but ensures that government performs its proper job effectively. It refines popular will through the filter of representation. It provides checks and balances through the several branches of government and a federal republic.
       A Constitutional conservatism unites all conservatives through the natural fusion provided by American principles. It reminds economic conservatives that morality is essential to limited government, social conservatives that unlimited government is a threat to moral self-government, and national security conservatives that energetic but responsible government is the key to America’s safety and leadership role in the world.
        A Constitutional conservatism based on first principles provides the framework for a consistent and meaningful policy agenda.

It applies the principle of limited government based on the rule of law to every proposal.
It honors the central place of individual liberty in American politics and life.
It encourages free enterprise, the individual entrepreneur, and economic reforms grounded in market solutions.
It supports America’s national interest in advancing freedom and opposing tyranny in the world and prudently considers what we can and should do to that end.
It informs conservatism’s firm defense of family, neighborhood, community, and faith.
       If we are to succeed in the critical political and policy battles ahead, we must be certain of our purpose. We must begin by retaking and resolutely defending the high ground of America’s founding principles.

Kerchner v Obama and Congress, Update, February 13 2010, Charles Kerchner lead plaintiff, Mario Apuzzo attorney, Obama and Congress Request and Obtain an Extension of Time to File Opposition Brief

From Charles Kerchner, lead plaintiff in Kerchner v Obama and Congress, last night, February 12. 2010.

“For Immediate Release – 12 February 2010

Obama and Congress Request and Obtain an Extension of Time to File Opposition Brief to Kerchner v Obama & Congress Appeal.

http://puzo1.blogspot.com/2010/02/obama-and-congress-request-and-obtain.html

As Lead Plaintiff in this case it looks to me like the Defendants are having great difficulty finding a way to knock down the constitutional, historical, and legal arguments made by Attorney Mario Apuzzo in the Appellant’s Opening Brief to the U.S. 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals filed in Philadelphia PA, the city where our U.S. Constitution was written in 1787.

The truth about Obama’s constitutional ineligibility for the office he sits in, and the fundamental law of our nation, the U.S. Constitution, will win the day in the end.

It is only a matter of time before the fraud of Obama in the 2008 election will be revealed. And because of that the progressives are trying to run out the clock to keep him in office as the putative president as long as possible. But in my opinion Obama’s days of deceit and fraudulently occupying the Oval Office are numbered.”

From attorney Mario Apuzzo:

“Friday, February 12, 2010
Obama and Congress Request and Obtain Extension of Time to File Opposition Brief to Kerchner Appeal
On January 19, 2010, I filed the Appellants’ Opening Brief in the appeal of Kerchner et al. v. Obama et al. which is currently pending in the Third Circuit Court of Appeals in Philadelphia. In that appeal, we maintain that the New Jersey Federal District Court erred in dismissing our case by ruling that plaintiffs do not have standing to challenge Obama’s alleged eligibility to be President and Commander in Chief of the Military and that our case presents a non-justiciable political question. In our case, we have provided the Founder’s and Framers’ definition of an Article II “natural born Citizen” which is a child born in the country to citizen parents. We maintain that Obama is not an Article II “natural born Citizen” because he lacks unity of citizenship and allegiance from birth which is obtained when a child is born in the United States to a mother and father who are both United States citizens at the time of birth. Obama’s father was only a temporary visitor to the United States when Obama was born and never even became a resident let alone a citizen. Not being an Article II “natural born Citizen,” Obama is not eligible to be President and Commander in Chief.

We also maintain that Obama has failed to conclusively prove that he was born in Hawaii by publicly presenting a copy of a contemporaneous birth certificate (a long-form birth certificate generated when he was born in 1961 and not simply a digital image of computer generated Certification of Live Birth [COLB] allegedly obtained from the Hawaii Department of Health in 2007 which was posted on the internet by some unknown person in 2008) or through other contemporaneous and objective documentation. Having failed to meet his constitutional burden of proof under Article II, Section 1, Clause 5, we cannot accept him as a “natural born Citizen.”

The defendants had 30 days within which to file their opposition brief. Defendants have requested and obtained from the Court an extension of time to file their brief. The Court has granted them until March 8, 2010 to file it. After that filing, I will then have a chance to file a reply brief within the next 14 days.

You may obtain a copy of my brief at this site . We will be posting here the defendants’ opposition brief after it is filed along with my reply brief. I hope that many of you will take the time to read these briefs so that you may learn first hand what the legal issues and arguments are regarding whether the plaintiffs have standing and/or are precluded by the political question doctrine to challenge Obama on his eligibility to be President and Commander in Chief, and what the meaning of an Article II “natural born Citizen” is.

Attorney Apuzzo will comment on this action more in the next few days in his legal blog at:  http://puzo1.blogspot.com/  However, please feel free to contact Atty Apuzzo with any immediate questions at the contact addresses listed in the afore listed blog site.

We look forward to the U.S. 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals reviewing this matter and ordering a trial on the merits as to the Article II Constitutional eligibility of Obama to serve as President and Commander-in-Chief of the military.

Glenn Beck, Insults Americans, Birthers, Beck is uninformed, Glenn Beck can you hear us?, Listen and apologize or else, Glenn Beck insults on video

Apparently Glenn Beck has not apologized for being a hypocrite and a jerk. On Monday, January 4, 2010, on Glenn Beck’s radio show, Beck who is very much uninformed on the subject of Obama’s eligibility, insulted millions of hard working, concerned, patriotic Americans.

While I might agree with Beck on prioritizing the Obama eligibility issue, I had the good sense and respect for others to stay out of their way. It appears that Beck has not learned that lesson. It also appears, as my mom used to say that “He has gotten too big for his britches.”

Here is what is going to happen. Anybody can make a mistake. So I am willing to give Glenn Beck a chance to apologize, pay attention and either cover the story properly or keep his damn mouth shut.

I will attempt once again to contact him tomorrow.

If Beck has not responded, I will query the good people of this blog and others to possibly boycott Glen Beck’s shows.

What Beck has done is inexcusable. I listened to most of his Fox TV show today, January 7, 2010. After Beck had made the insults and today violated almost every principle he discussed today, I was ready to let him have it. I despise a hypocrite.

Glenn Beck, are you paying attention?

Glenn Beck, I challenge you, one on one, use your “arguments” to insult me.

Glenn Beck, Americans insulted, Birthers, Glenn Beck Radio Show staff, Beck researchers, Obama, Obama eligibility, Birth certificate, Natural born citizen, Who is your staff workng for?, Glenn Beck you owe the American people an apology

For some time, I have wondered about the staff of assistants and researchers for people such as Glenn Beck. For some reason early on, Glenn Beck avoided Obama’s eligibility. There were various theories floating around about Fox putting pressure on it’s show hosts to not touch the issue. Of course the Orwellian efforts of the Obama camp to form public opinion about where Obama was born, evidence supplied and rewriting the Constitution on Natural born citizen, could have swayed Beck for a while. I wondered many times about the motivation of Beck’s so called researchers.
Yesterday the Citizen Wells blog presented the following after Glenn Beck made some non factual statements about Obama’s eligibilty, embraced the far left demeaning definition of “birthers” and insulted millions of concerned Americans.

“Glenn Beck, I believe this quote came from your newsletter:

“Just like the notorious ’seminar callers’ Rush talks about, there is a new type of seminar caller out there trying to get on talk radio: the birther. Sure, there are plenty of idiots out there who actually think Barack Obama was not born in the United States and this is a way to get him impeached. But most reasonable people don’t believe that. It’s so ridiculous that it’s actually a good distraction for Obama, because it’s an easy win for him and distracts from the real issues. Is that why so many birthers seem to be on different talk shows lately?””
“While I might agree that there are other priorities to focus on, insulting hard working, concerned Americans, Americans who believe that the US Constitution is still relevant and still the law of the land, is unacceptable and will not be tolerated.”
Citizen Wells and concerned Americans demad apology from Glenn Beck

Today Zach of the ZachJonesIsHome blog, veteran, well educated patriot, did some research. From his comment on this blog.

“2010/01/05 at 10:50am
Update on Glenn Beck’s deriding us.

Yesterday someone suggested that I should go to the 9/12 Project tab on this site to make sure Glenn Beck is aware of all of this. There’s a place on the page that says: Talk to Us!

I sent an email followed by Discussion text and the following in the subject line:
Please! I just want to make sure Glenn reads this: Glenn
Beck’s Radio – I heard that he angered a lot of people today

This is the response I received from the webmaster:

webmaster@theglennbeck912project.com to me
show details 7:12 PM (14 hours ago)

And your point?

We agree with Glenn – the birther nonsense is a massive waste of time. We will not answer future emails about this foolishness.

Thanks

——– Original Message ——–
Subject: Please! I just want to make sure Glenn reads this: Glenn
