SNAP SHOT OF NY TIMES OP-ED FEB 24, 2008 THAT WAS IGNORED BY MOST AND THE AUTHOR WASN’T GOING TO GO OUT OF HIS WAY TO POINT OUT THE OBVIOUS HE HAD LEARNED!
Obama wants to see and control our medical records, but he still refuses to release his…
Why all the secrecy? Afraid of more lies exposed would be the logical conclusion since Sanjay Gupta accepted the Surgeon General’s position, then later backed out.
WND has another update:
One of the little-explored issues relating to the controversy over Barack Obama’s eligibility to be president under the U.S. Constitution’s demand for a “natural born” citizen in that post is the impact of his move to Indonesia as a child.
The AP has reported that Obama was listed as Barry Soetoro while a child attending school as a citizen of Indonesia and his religion listed as Islam.
One WND reader whose name is being withheld because he is a private individual reported when he adopted his wife’s daughter from a previous relationship in Asia and brought the family to the United States, he was given a “certificate of birth” from the state of Kansas for his daughter.
However, the document cites specifically, “This Certificate is not evidence of United States Citizenship.”
Some of the challenges to Obama’s presidency contend the framers of the Constitution excluded dual citizens from qualifying as natural born.
The primary author of the citizenship clause, Sen. Jacob M. Howard (elected as a Whig to the Twenty-seventh Congress (March 4, 1841-March 3, 1843); elected as a Republican to the United States Senate to fill the vacancy caused by the death of Kinsley S. Bingham; reelected in 1865 and served from January 17, 1862, to March 3, 1871), said during the drafting:
“The word jurisdiction, as here employed, ought to be construed so as to imply a full and complete jurisdiction on the part of the United States, coextensive in all respects with the constitutional power of the United States, whether exercised by Congress, by the Executive, or by the Judicial Department; that is to say, the same jurisdiction in extent and quality as applies to every citizen of the United States.”
When we look further into the study of the 14th Amendment’s drafting, we find a ruling from US Attorney General, George Williams (1865 to 1871 Williams served as United States Senator from Oregon. In 1871 he was a member of the commission to settle the Alabama claims from the Treaty of Washington. December 14, 1871-1875; Attorney General of the United States). George was a US Senator at the time of the drafting of the 14th Amendment:
“The word “jurisdiction” under the 14th Amendment “must be understood to mean absolute and complete jurisdiction, such as the United States had over its citizens before the adoption of this amendment. “Political and military rights and duties” do not pertain to anyone else.”
Essentially, what this means is that in order to be a “citizen” under the 14th Amendment, one must renounce any other allegiances so that their US citizenship is solely under the “jurisdiction” of the United States. In fact, controversy at the time due to dual allegiances was so great that Congress, in a joint congressional report on June 22, 1874 said:
“The United States have not recognized double allegiance”
