On Revisiting Old Favorites

from ‘Ben Carson: Trump Should Apologize for Obama Birther Comments’ - Cathy Burke - September 6 (reposted under Liberty Headlines - September 7)

Dear Dr. Carson,

One of the "big issues" that the American people should be discussing is how far off the mark we have come from understanding our Constitution, and with especial regard to the 'natural born' citizen eligibility requirement to occupy the office of the presidency. If we really knew our history, we would know that we have been snookered by our erstwhile (New World Order) masters in this matter; for we would know that it doesn't really matter WHERE Obama was born. He fell at the first hurdle when his father was not an American citizen. He is a Usurper right there. End of story.

To elaborate a bit: A 'natural born' citizen, as opposed to merely a citizen, either naturalized or not, is a person born in the country of parents who are citizens thereof. (That's what makes it 'natural,' for heaven's sake.) The whole POINT of the exercise on the part of the constitutional Framers, in putting that particular eligibility requirement in their contract for that particular office - and that particular federal office ONLY, signifying its special nature - was so that the occupant of that office, who would as well, then, become the Commander in Chief of the nation's military forces, would have NO DUAL OR OTHERWISE CONFLICTING LOYALTIES OR ALLEGIANCES OR INFLUENCES. Had SOLE ALLEGIANCE to the U.S. (Duh!)

The definition comes from the definitive tome of the day on such matters - and as taught in the universities of the day: E. de Vattel's 'The Law of Nations, Or Principles of Natural Law'. (Book One, Ch. XIX, Sect. 212.) And that eligibility requirement for that particular office STILL STANDS, absent a constitutional amendment to the contrary.

How come this matter isn't better known? I can only surmise that the public must have figured that if there were anything untoward about Obama's eligibility, the Republican Party would have done something about it. Well, guess what: They did. They subsequently ran their OWN ineligible candidates through that breach in the Constitution - to say, the rule of law - in the form of Ted Cruz, and Marco Rubio, and Bobby Jindal, none of whom are 'natural born' citizens either. And it's not as if either major political party didn't know what they were doing: Both of them tried a total of 8 times between them, between 2003 and '08 alone, to get a constitutional amendment going through Congress on this very issue (with it being their common denominator) - and they failed each time to get their proposals even out of committee, such was the sensitivity around this particular issue. So, what did they do? It's obvious what they did: They colluded, in trying to do an end around on the Constitution, and the American people, in this matter. And figured that, with their having control between them of the MSM, they could get away with it.

Well, guess what, boyos: Some of us mere citizens understand our Constitution. And so - rightfully - all the legislation that the Usurper has signed into law, and all the E.O.'s and P.D.'s that he has issued, and all the appointments that he has made - including to the SCOTUS, and lesser courts - go with him, into the trash bin. As he is arrested - or chooses to resign; knowing that the jig is up - and is held for trial, on a whole host of charges by now, including fraud, perjury, and treason.

That is what rightfully should happen. What say you NOW, Dr. Carson???


Dr. Carson is a good man.  And a naive one.

Needing to observe, with Edmund Burke, that 

"The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing."

Sometimes, for being misled.

And buying it.

For not being sufficiently discerning.
