House Senate Obama judges et al require Constitution 101, Natural born citizen not equal to citizen, Right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed

House Senate Obama judges et al require Constitution 101, Natural born citizen not equal to citizen, Right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed

“If in the opinion of the People, the distribution or modification of the Constitutional powers be in any particular wrong, let it be corrected by an amendment in the way which the Constitution designates. But let there be no change by usurpation, for through this in one instance, may be the instrument of good, it is the customary weapon by which free governments are destroyed.”…George Washington

“We the people are the rightful masters of both Congress and the courts, not to overthrow the Constitution but to overthrow the men who pervert the Constitution.”…Abraham Lincoln

“If ever a time should come, when vain and aspiring men shall possess the highest seats in Government, our country will stand in need of its experienced patriots to prevent its ruin”…Samuel Adams, 1776

 

Obama, many senators, congressmen, judges and state officials have a poor understanding of and little respect for the US Constitution. Over the past 5 years we have watched and listened as the natural born citizen requirement has been butchered and ignored. Now we are confronted by the attempts by many to misinterpret, ignore or subjugate the Second Amendment to the US Constitution.
“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”

Citizen is not equal to natural born citizen and therefore cannot be used interchangeably.

“the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.”

Infringement: The encroachment, breach, or violation of a right, law, regulation, or contract.

Constitution 101 classes was first mentioned at Citizen Wells on December 17, 2008. This was prompted by the numerous absurd, erroneous, incompetent responses from senators and congressmen when Obama’s natural born citizen status was questioned.

From Citizen Wells December 17, 2008.

The ultimate objective of a presidential election to inaugurate a
constitutionally qualified president that as closely as possible
reflects the will of the people.
The states have been given the power and the duty to control presidential
elections by the US Constitution.

The pervasive attitudes of the state officers and election officials is
that they, incorrectly, have no power to qualify presidential candidates
and/or they depend on political parties to vet the candidates.

The political parties have evolved and changed since the creation of the
US Consitution and are given no powers. However, members of the parties,
as US Citizens have an implied duty to uphold the Constitution and party
officers typically have taken oaths as elected officials to uphold the
US Constitution.

Clearly, the intent of the US Constitution and Federal Election Law is
for an eligible candidate to move through this election process to allow
for a constitutionally valid vote by Electors.

All officers and election officials, most judges and most Electoral
College Electors were informed prior to the general election and
particularly prior to the Electors meeting and voting, of compelling
evidence that Barack Obama is not eligible to be president. Despite
these warnings, Electors met and voted on the basis of party loyalty or
perceived directives from the states. State or party policies dictating
how an Elector votes violate the spirit and letter of constitutional
and federal law.

Even though the manner of Electoral College voting in clearly defined by
the US Constitution and Federal Election Law, some states have included
explicit references to law in their Certificates of Voters that are
signed by Electors and state officers. Below are certificates from 2004.

Conclusion

  • The US Constitution is clear on presidential eligibility and how
    Electoral Colleges Electors are to vote.
  • Ignorance is no excuse. Everyone involved was forewarned. Voting
    party line over law will not be tolerated.
  • Electors and state officers have signed or will sign Certificates of Voters
    for the 2008 Election. As you can see from the above, they will
    certify that they are aware of the law and are abiding by the law.
  • Kentucky gets the award for the most constitutionally clear wording
    and should be applauded for doing so.
  • There are consequences for false attesting.
  • One of the consequences is that the votes of many Electors are now
    null and void.
  • Impeachment, recall, firing, criminal charges forthcoming?

Constitution 101 classes will begin soon.

State officers, election officials, judges and, of course,
US Supreme Court Justices will be invited. Stay tuned for a
class near you. I suppose Washington DC should be first.

Nothing has changed!

John Boehner, soon after Constitution 101 classes were held for the new congress in 2011, misquoted the natural born citizen requirement in an interview.

From Citizen Wells February 13, 2011.

“John Boehner has failed Constitution 101. He is still using citizen interchangeably with natural born citizen.”

“I believe that the president is a citizen. I believe the president is a Christian. I’ll take him at his word,” said Boehner, appearing on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”

https://citizenwells.wordpress.com/2011/02/13/john-boehner-fails-constitution-101-meet-the-press-interview-boehner-natural-born-citizen-not-citizen-obama-eligibility/

Eric Cantor, considered as a replacement for Boehner as Speaker of the House, has made similar ignorant comments about Obama being a citizen instead of a natural born citizen.

We must keep pushing accountability.

At the end of the day, all that we have is the US Constitution and it’s provision for being armed,  to protect us from the tyranny of government.

Tim Pawlenty, Donald Trump should quit questioning Obama’s birthplace, It’s the Constitution stupid

“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

Tim Pawlenty “thinks” Obama was born in Hawaii. Tim Pawlenty is not thinking. The US Constitution requires more than opinion. Laws and facts rule.

From CNN March 29, 2011.

“Donald Trump should quit questioning President Obama’s birthplace, says Tim Pawlenty, a potential future opponent of Trump’s for the Republican presidential nomination.

Appearing on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, Pawlenty said he doesn’t doubt Obama was, in fact, born in Hawaii and says members of his party should stop pushing the issue.

“I, for one, do not believe we should be raising that issue,” the ex-Minnesota governor said. “I think President Obama was born in the United States.””
“The comments come a day after Trump pushed the issue farther down the road, telling Fox News he is “really concerned” the president was not born in the United States.

“All of the sudden a lot of facts are emerging, and I am starting to wonder myself whether he was born in this country,” he said.”
“It should be noted that CNN and other news organizations have thoroughly debunked the rumors about the president’s birthplace. Hawaii has released a copy of the president’s birth certificate – officially called a “certificate of live birth” – and the hospital where he was born took out ads in two Hawaiian newspapers in 1961 announcing the birth.”

This article contains lies and misinformation typical of the Communist News Network.

“It should be noted that CNN and other news organizations have thoroughly debunked the rumors about the president’s birthplace. Hawaii has released a copy of the president’s birth certificate – officially called a “certificate of live birth” – and the hospital where he was born took out ads in two Hawaiian newspapers in 1961 announcing the birth.”

  • The document purporting to be Obama’s was a Certification of Live birth, not Certificate.
  • We do not know which hospital Obama was born in.
  • There is no evidence that the document placed on the internet was produced by the state of Hawaii or that it is genuine.
  • A COLB from Hawaii can be obtained even if the birth occurred elsewhere.

“CNN and other news organizations have thoroughly debunked the rumors”

Oh really?

Tim Pawlenty, welcome to the US Constitution Hall of Shame

I just shared my thoughts with the Pawlenty for president site. Perhaps you would like to as well.

“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

“Live free or die.”…New Hampshire state motto

 The mainstream media and the US Justice Department have been protecting Obama since 2008. In the LTC Terry Lakin Court Martial last year, Judge Denise Lind addressed the opening up of evidence about Obama’s eligibility in this manner:  “opening up such evidence could be an “embarrassment” to the president.” An embarassment means that he is not president.

More states are addresing the issue of vetting presidential candidates during the election cycle. New Hampshire is one of those states.

From the New Hampshire Journal March 9, 2011.

“Presidential candidates who want to be on New Hampshire’s primary ballot next year may have to produce a birth certificate under a proposal being brought before a state House committee.

Election Law Chairman David Bates said his committee will consider a bill Wednesday to require candidates to provide a birth certificate and affidavit swearing they are at least 35 years old and have lived in the United States for 14 years, as called for in the U.S. Constitution to qualify for the presidency.

“They need to produce a certified copy of the long form of their birth certificate and an affidavit swearing to residency,” the Windham Republican said Tuesday.

New Hampshire holds the earliest presidential primaries and takes pride that its voters help launch contenders toward the White House.
Bates said the purpose of the bill is to ensure that only those truly qualified for the presidency are on the ballot. He emphasized that the measure was not aimed at President Barack Obama, and said he may seek to make the bill effective in 2013 after the next election. If New Hampshire sought to make the requirement effective immediately, “then we’ll have a circus,” he predicted.

Meanwhile, House Republican Leader D.J. Bettencourt issued a statement against the measure.

“It is unnecessary and detracts from important business, namely our economy,” he said. “Moreover, this potential amendment could represent a threat to our first in the nation primary as it gives other states reason and desire to try to jump us in line.””

Uphold your oath and duty or get the hell out of office!

From Macon.com March 2, 2011.

“A bill signed by 94 state House members would require all presidential and vice presidential candidates to present a birth certificate to the Georgia Secretary of State’s Office before they can be put on the statewide ballot.

The Presidential Eligibility Assurance Act, House Bill 401, would demand of each candidate a long-form birth certificate, a sworn statement that the candidate has never been a citizen of another country and a confirmation that the candidate has lived in the U.S. for the previous 14 years.

 During the 2008 presidential elections, allegations were raised that then-candidate Barack Obama was not a U.S. citizen, which spurred him to release documentation from Hawaii confirming his birth in that state.

Rep. Mark Hatfield, R-Waycross, the lead author on the bill, is skeptical of the documentation.

The document is a certificate of live birth from the state of Hawaii, valid for use in court proceedings and is considered by Hawaii a legitimate birth certificate.

But Hatfield called on Obama to release the actual piece of paper issued at his 1961 birth.

“I’m saying I don’t know where Obama was born,” said Hatfield. “It’s not just an Obama question.

It seeks to fill the void left by Congress” in enforcing Article II of the Constitution on presidential eligibility.”

An update from Birther Report March 11, 2011.

“GA House Bill HB401 presidential eligibility bill will be changed to protect Obama from having to comply in the 2012 presidential election. Effective date to be changed to July 2013, after the 2012 presidential election. This was announced by GA Rep Hatfield on a radio show appearance last night.

From commenter da verg on March 11, 2011.

“ok
people listen up
need a massive run for the GA house leadership, here is response i got back
from rep supporting the bill
Please understand that I am dealing with recalcitrant leadership which will not allow the bill to move through the committee process. We are trying to get the bill dislodged from subcommittee, and this proposal was made in an attempt to get the House leadership to allow the bill to be considered. The bill would not be required to stay in this form, but we have to try something to get the bill moving. If we don’t get some movement right away, the bill will be dead for the year. You don’t need to convince me that Obama needs to be subject to a law requiring proof of eligibility; I believe it wholeheartedly and have been actively advocating for it for years. Your efforts would be better spent contacting the leadership of the Georgia House and demanding that the bill be allowed to move. Nothing short of massive public outcry is going to get their attention it seems. I would appreciate your efforts and continued support of the bill.”

Georgia of all places. What the hell is wrong with people in this country!

“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

“Guard against the impostures of pretended patriotism.”

“Firearms are second only to the Constitution in importance; they are the peoples’ liberty’s teeth.”

“The Constitution is the guide which I never will abandon.”

“Truth will ultimately prevail where there is pains to bring it to light.”

George Washington

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.”

One expects  socialist, anti American and anti Constitution remarks and positions from the modern day Democrat Party. Now many of the Republicans are following suit. Consider these disgusting examples from John Boehner, Mike Huckabee and now Sarah Palin who are apparently RINO’s.

It is one thing to be ignorant or apathetic about Obama’s history and eligibility. It is quite another to refer to presidential eligibility as being extraneous or a distraction. This is a total disregard for the US Constitution and we will not tolerate it!

Mike Huckabee Obama eligibility extraneous, US Constitution extraneous, Huckabee book interview

Mike Huckabee Obama eligibility extraneous, US Constitution extraneous, Huckabee book interview

“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

Mike Huckabee was recently interviewed by George Stephanopoulos  about his book “A Simple Government.” During the interview Huckabee was asked about the controversy about Obama’s citizenship. Mike Huckabee committed 2 unforgiveable errors.

  • Instead of correcting George Stephanopoulos about using citizen interchangeably with natural born citizen, he followed the Orwellian line.
  • Huckabee then stated that the issue was extraneous, effectively stating that the natural born citizen clause and the US Constitution are extraneous.

This will not be tolerated.

I am requesting that you send this far and wide and bombard Mike Huckabee and the Republican party with our response to this unacceptable behaviour. We will no longer tolerate this disregard for the US Constitution and rule of law.

Let’s make an example out of Mike Huckabee. Perhaps the others will then take notice.

John Boehner has failed Constitution 101. He is still using citizen interchangeably with natural born citizen.

From the Chicago Tribune February 13, 2011.

“Speaker John Boehner said Sunday that he believed President Obama was a U.S. citizen and a Christian but that it wasn’t up to him to convince people who were skeptical of the president’s birthplace and religion.

“I believe that the president is a citizen. I believe the president is a Christian. I’ll take him at his word,” said Boehner, appearing on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”

Boehner spoke after viewing a video of a Republican focus group in Iowa in which a number of people indicated that they believed Obama was a Muslim.

“As speaker of the House, as a leader, do you not think it’s your responsibility to speak out against that kind of ignorance?” asked the host, David Gregory.

 “David, it’ not my job to tell the American people what to think,” Boehner replied. “The American people have the right to think what they want to think.””

The US Constitution was read in the House of Representatives last week. As I understand it, Constitution 101 classes will be held for congressmen. Some members of Congress, including John Boehner, may have to do some remedial work including stay after class. The same day that the Constitution was read, John Boehner used the word citizen and natural born citizen interchangeably. He also exhibited ignorance regarding proof of Obama’s birthplace.

“Birthers accuse Obama of not having been born in the U.S., despite the release of his birth certificate showing that he was born in Hawaii.”

“Update, 3:51 p.m.: In an interview to air this evening on NBC Nightly News, House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) reacted to the outburst and said he believed Obama is a U.S. citizen.

Ezra Klein, Constitution has no binding power, Text confusing, 112th Congress reads US Constitution

Ezra Klein, Constitution has no binding power, Text confusing, 112th Congress reads US Constitution

Ezra Klein of the Washington Post was interviewed on MSNBC. He was asked to respond to the 112th Congress reading the US Constitution on January 6, 2011. His response, though stupefying, was consistent with the attitudes of the left and what would be expected from an associate of the Washington Post.

In the interview he states:

“it has no binding power on anything.”

“The text is confusing”

Ezra Klein, which of these provisions of the US Constitution do you consider confusing and non binding?

“Amendment I

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

“Amendment XV

Section 1.
The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of race, color, or previous condition of servitude–”

“Amendment XIX

The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex.”

Ezra Klein, after being bombarded with responses to his idiotic statements, posted a “clarification” of his remarks. The problem I mostly have with Mr. Klein is his cavalier attitude in regard to the US Constitution. He must have a great many followers on the left.

“This morning, I gave a quick interview to MSNBC where I made, I thought, some fairly banal points on the GOP’s plan to honor the Constitution by having it read aloud on the House floor. Asked if it was a gimmick, I replied that it was, because, well, it is. It’s our founding document, not a spell that makes the traitors among us glow green. It’s also, I noted, a completely nonbinding act: It doesn’t impose a particular interpretation of the Constitution on legislators, and will have no practical impact on how they legislate.”

“But my inbox suggests that my comments weren’t taken that way: The initial interpretation was that I’d said the Constitution is too complicated to understand because it was written a long time ago, and then, as the day went on, that I’d said the document itself is nonbinding. I went back and watched the clip — or at least the part someone clipped and sent me, which is above — and thought I was clear enough. But when a lot of people misunderstand you at once, the fault is usually yours. So if I was unclear: Yes, the Constitution is binding. No, it’s not clear which interpretation of the Constitution the Supreme Court will declare binding at any given moment.”

http://voices.washingtonpost.com/ezra-klein/2010/12/yes_the_constitution_is_bindin.html

Yes, Ezra Klein, the fault is yours. And once again, which provision is ok for you or the Supreme Court to declare not binding?

Ezra Klein, welcome the the US Constitution Hall of Shame.

Justice Scalia, would you please spend a little extra time on the Natural Born Citizen provision in the Constitution.

From the Citizen Wells US Constitution Hall of Shame begun in 2008.

 Senator Mike Crapo

“The Constitution and federal law require that, among other things,
only native-born U.S. citizens (or those born abroad, but only to
parents who were both American citizens) may be President of the
United States.”

“Furthermore, both the Director of
Hawaii’s Department of Health and the state’s Registrar of Vital
Statistics recently confirmed that Mr. Obama was born in Honolulu,
Hawaii on August 4, 1961 and, as such, meets the constitutional
citizenship requirements for the presidency.”

 Senator Barbara Mikulski (The most grossly inaccurate response)

“The Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution states that “all persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States.” Since President-elect Obama was born in Hawaii two years after it was admitted as the 50th state, he is a natural-born citizen. He has released a copy of his birth certificate and it has been authenticated by experts. Following Obama’s overwhelming and undisputed victory in the recent election, the Supreme Court has considered challenges to his citizenship and dismissed them as being without merit.”

 Senator Harry Reid

“Barack Obama was born on August 4, 1961, in
Honolulu, Hawai’i. His birth certificate is a matter of public record
of the State of Hawai’i and is available online through various news
sources, as well as on the Web site for the nonpartisan, nonprofit
Annenberg Political Fact Check: http://www.factcheck.org

 Representative Steven LaTourette

” The Secretary of State of each state holds the responsibility of
verifying that each presidential candidate meets the requirements as
outlined in the U.S. Constitution.”

 Senator John Cornyn

“The consequences
of continued inaction are too great. It is imperative that Congress
act quickly to secure our borders, reform our country’s immigration
laws, modernize healthcare, and promote energy independence. You may
be certain that I will continue to pursue conservative initiatives
that reinforce the principles upon which our country was founded
while holding the new Administration accountable to the American
people.”

Representative James Sensenbrenner

“As you may know, the Senate unanimously passed S.Res.511, recognizing
that Senator McCain is a natural born citizen. This measure came about
in response to questions that were raised with respect to Sen. McCain’s
eligibility due to the fact that he was born outside of the United
States to U.S. citizens while his father was serving in the U.S.
military. In President-elect Obama’s case, such legislation was not
deemed necessary because claims that Mr. Obama is constitutionally
ineligible for the nation’s highest office are unfounded. No credible
evidence has surfaced to call into question his eligibility to run.”
