Ronald Reagan at Arlington (1986)

“We must always remember that peace is a fragile thing that needs constant vigilance. We owe them [our soldiers] a promise to look at the world with a steady gaze and, perhaps, a resigned toughness, knowing that we have adversaries in the world and challenges and the only way to meet them and maintain the peace is by staying strong.”

Forget the birth certificate. Is Obama a ‘natural born’ citizen or not?

In Aaron Klein’s book The Manchurian President, in the chapter entitled “Eligibility” he makes a good case regarding Obama’s citizenship status.

What is a natural born citizen? The Constitution never really defines that and it’s not clearly defined in the Federalist Papers, either. Does natural born mean that you have to be born on American soil? Or does it mean that you have to be born of parents who are American citizens?

You might remember the to-do made over McCain’s birth in Panama… on an American naval base. It was such a big deal that the Senate passed a resolution on April 30, 2008 that stated John Sidney McCain III, being “born to American citizens on an American military base in the Panama Canal Zone in 1938 … is a ‘natural born citizen’ under Article II, Section 1 of the Constitution…”

(Why such a resolution was required of a great war hero and nothing about Obama’s circumstances was ever addressed by Congress, is an entirely other topic.)

I believe that ‘natural born’ means being born to AMERICAN CITIZENS – two American citizens. I think the Senate believed that, too if you read their resolution for McCain, as I do.

When Obama was born, his father, or the man  the claims as his father, was Kenyan. In 1961, the year of Obama’s birth, Kenya was part of the British Crown. Obviously, Obama, Sr. was not an American citizen.  And Obama, nor anyone in his circle dispute that fact. But because the definition of ‘natural born’ is so obscure and not clearly defined in the Constitution, and because as Klein and I both admit, we are not Constitutional lawyers, there probably won’t be any case brought against this.

The meaning of the day

The Manchurian President – my book club choice

As David Horowitz emphasizes, citing an SDS radical who once wrote, “the issue is never the issue. The issue is always the revolution.”  In other words, the cause – whether inner city blacks or women – is never the real cause, but only an ocassion to advance the real cause which is the culmination of power to make the revolution. That was the all consuming focus of Alinsky and his radicals.”

from The Manchurian President by Aaron Klein

In other words, the ends justify the means. Use whatever means, whatever useful idiot, use any group who feels victimized, to obtain the ends (goals) which is power and control.

Remember Obama’s words during the campaign: “we are the ones we’ve been waiting for”? He  wasn’t speaking to the adoring crowd, those with tear streaked faces hanging on his every word. He was speaking to the elite progressives, his real people, the small circle of academics and ideologues, the 60’s radicals who had come of age and wrested the ultimate power.

The progressives had accomplished what they had always said they would: bore from within. And now, as Horowitz says in Klein’s book, like termites, they are eating the very foundation of this nation.
