It seems that the legal advisors and strategists surrounding President-Elect Barack Hussien Obama II may be using a playbook of strategies and lies that are more than 100 years old to perpetuate the President-Elect’s eligibility to be the President of the United States.
While running for the Vice-Presidency, Vermont native Chester A. Arthur was plagued by numerous factions stating that he was ineligible for the office because of the dual citzizenship that he held as a result of his father’s immigration status. Arthur’s father immigrated from Great Britain, and became a United States citizen in 1843. However, President Arthur was born in 1829, and therefore was both a United States citizen and a British citizen.
It was understood in the legal circles that our Constitution granted the initial founding fathers “grandfathered” status to be eligible to be President because they were all born as British subjects. All the Constitutional scholars agreed that the writings and the careful wording regarding “natural born citizenship” in contrast to “naturalized citizenship” was the means by which the framers of the Constitution wanted to make sure that EVERY future PRESIDENT and VICE-PRESIDENT were NOT DUAL-CITIZENS with any other country. The SOVEREIGNTY of the United States was immensely important to our founding fathers.
Chester Arthur went to great lenghts to lie, to hide facts, to make sure that his dual citizenship did not stop his quest for the White House. Now, Barack Obama is trying to circumvent the Constitution by hiding his birth certificate, his academic records, and anything else that shows either that he might not have been born in Hawaii, and/or that he is a dual citizen of Kenya, as his website had acknowledged. The Obama team have gone so far as to “cleanse” YouTube of the videos they had posted that allegedly had footage of Obama and his staff acknowledging that he potentially is ineligible to be the President, and that at all costs, the Constitution cannot be applied in a literal interpretation.
For those who have commented to me in the past that it doesn’t matter, even if he was born elsewhere, because he will lead us “to the promise land” so to speak, I say that it is important that we stand by our Constitution, and hold even Barack Obama to the standards and requirements within it. If we fail to do that, then we will surrender every right and privilege we are accorded by that Constitution, including our freedom of sppech, our freedom of religion, and our right to have guns. Then God help us all.
