The Lesson

I have just received the September issue of the Phyllis Schlafly Report, in which she has done an excellent job of defining, and reporting on, the term ‘…and subject to the jurisdiction thereof’ in the 14th Amendment.  What this does is throw the gross canard of ‘anchor babies’ in the dust bin, where it has long deserved to be tossed.

There simply is no such thing as an ‘anchor baby,’ the bestowing of American citizenship on babies born in this country either to illegal aliens or to ‘birth tourists‘.  Give me the chance, and I will have all those shyster legal types who foisted this piece of chicanery on this nation traced down, and have all those still living, lawyers and judges, thrown in jail, for gross malfeasance.  Such babies are the nationality of their parents, and their nation of “jurisdiction”.  As clarified in a current court case in Texas, brought by some two dozen mothers “who admit they are citizens of Mexico living illegally in Texas”.  Phyllis goes on, in her report on the case:

“The women complain that without proper ID they cannot get birth certificates for their Texas-born children, and that without birth certificates they can’t enroll in Medicaid, food stamps, Section 8 housing, and other U.S. taxpayer-provided benefits.”1  And what has let the cat out of the bag right and proper?  The Mexican consulate in Texas itself; which has come to the aid of the mothers. Phyllis reports:   

“The Mexican consul, in his sworn testimony, says that ‘my responsibilities in this position include protecting the rights and promoting the interests of my fellow Mexican nationals’ and ‘The main responsibility of consulates is to provide services, assistance, and protection to nationals abroad.’  Mexico’s assertion of continuing jurisdiction over its ‘nationals abroad’ is inconsistent with any claim to automatic U.S. citizenship merely by reason of birth on U.S. soil.”  Gotcha.

Which case highlights the warnings that we were given by our Founding Fathers on placing too much power in the hands of the individuals who ended up getting appointed to judgeships in this country, and start engaging in court-made law.   Consider the words of Thomas Jefferson on the subject:   

“To consider the judges as the ultimate arbiters of all constitutional questions is a very dangerous doctrine indeed, and one which would place us under the despotism of an oligarchy.”2

Just so.  Checks and balances, ladies and gentlemen.  Checks and balances.  And if the balance goes awry, it’s up to We the People to get the Republic back on track.  For, the Republic was created to serve us.  Not the other way around.3

I just wish that she would do the same sort of highly commendable job on the definition of the term ‘natural born citizen,’ and help rout the Usurper out of the Oval Office.  For, if a true-blue conservative like Phyllis Schlafly won’t do the job, of alerting the public to this monstrous crime to the Republic - against the Constitution, the very fabric of the nation -  who can be expected to do it??  

I have tried to alert her to the matter, at least a couple of times, by way of notes in my responses to her donation requests; but who knows if envelopes clearly marked ‘To the Personal Attn. of’ so-and-so ever really get in their hands.4  In any event: 

She should know.  And I fault her for NOT knowing, the truth of that matter.  Or, if she actually does know it, being willing to act on it.

But I do give her credit on her take on, and reporting on, the appalling, and illegal, matter of ‘anchor babies’. 


P.S. With Cruz, I pointed out to ‘him’ that a greater service he could perform for the country - at least for the Republic - than running illegally for the highest office in the land (and thus somehow trying to make two wrongs make a right) would be for him to admit to the Truth about his ineligibility, and thereby point the finger of ineligibility at the Usurper, and thus help get this nation back on the track of the rule of law.  
     Although it is starting to appear to be too late for that.  The country is about to go into receivership. 
     My fellow Americans: By attempting to steer by your own lights, instead of guiding by the light of Truth, you have allowed our ship of state to be steered into the shoals of slavery, by venal, and ideological, traitors.  The kinds of persons we were fully warned about.  And thus endeth
     the lesson.



1 “Like other states, Texas issues a birth certificate to a close relative only upon presentation of a valid ID issued by a U.S. federal or state agency.”  Moreover: “These restrictions were adopted to combat the growing epidemic of identity theft, whose main cause is the widespread use of forged or fake documents by illegal aliens.”

2 And another, in the same vein; this, from Abraham Lincoln, in warning that if we accept the supremacy of judges, "the people will have ceased to be their own rulers, having to that extent practically resigned their government into the hands of that eminent tribunal".

3 Very farsighted people, our Founding Fathers.  Consider the words of John Adams: 
   “Our Constitution was intended only for a moral and religious people.  It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”  Because, as his cousin, and consummate Tea Partier, Samuel Adams pointed out (both ancestors of mine, incidentally.  Or not so):
   “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.”
   You nailed it, Sam.  Proud of ya.

4 I have done the same thing with many a political personage, either party or individual, on the subject of ineligible candidates for the office of the POTUS.  Besides Obama, like Cruz and Rubio.  (And Jindal.  And Santorum, for that matter.)  But a private individual, with no power but the Truth, can only do so much.
   It’s up to others to join the ’A’ Team in such matters.
