Commander Kerchner Exclusive: Republicans want review of birthright citizenship - comments on that issue by CDR Charles Kerchner (Ret) -
These key Republican leadership Senators KNOW there is a difference in the wording, meaning, and intent of the 14th Amendment, the Wong Kim Ark 1898 and Supreme Court decisions as to whose is a "Citizen of the USA", ... and the wording in Article II as to who is a "natural born Citizen of the USA". They know that those two extra adjectives have very special meaning rooted deeply in natural law. But they are going to deliberately blur the lines on purpose because of what these same Senators and both political parties did in the 2008 election, i.e., both political parties putting up candidates for President who had suspect Article II "natural born Citizen" status. Both candidates from the two major political parties for the first time in history did not meet the historic and natural law Article II meaning of the legal term of art "natural born Citizen of the United States", which is being born in the USA to two citizen parents. McCain was born in Panama and Obama's father was not a Citizen of the USA, not even an immigrant to the USA.
These self serving clever politicians have tried 5 times legislatively since 2001 to blur the meaning of "natural born Citizen" by statute but have failed.
- FIVE ATTEMPTS TO RE-DEFINE NATURAL BORN CITIZEN SINCE 2001 -
Why did they do that? They did it to provide cover to run candidates for President who would otherwise not be eligible ... McCain and Obama. And maybe to also provide cover in the future for political figures like Gov. Jindal and others who are not "natural born Citizens of the United States" to run for President without amending the Constitution first. But instead of amending Article II of the Constitution to address the issue head on, they choose to obfuscate the issue and babble and lie and confuse the electorate about it in other ways. The reason they don't want to address amending Article II as to who can be the President head-on is because they know the We the People will not allow amendment of the "natural security" eligibility clause in Article II, i.e., that the person who would be President must be a "natural born Citizen of the United States" -- be born in the USA to parents who are both Citizens of the United States.
Ignore that clause and what do you get. You get what our founders and framers feared most ... a person not innately loyal to the USA by birth ... i.e. .... OBAMA a citizen of the world sitting in the Oval Office with more concern about his homeland of Kenya and the world than he does for the USA. Obama is NOT eligible to be the President of the United States and Commander in Chief of our military. Americans have very good reasons to be concerned about Obama's exact legal identify and citizenship status. He may or may not be a Citizen of the United Stated depending on where he was physically born, but he is clearly NOT a "natural born Citizen of the United States' to constitutional standards. See this essay by Attorney Mario Apuzzo for more on the history and law and Supreme Court decisions on that point.
Man cannot redefine "natural law". These law were created by nature and nature's God. It is from natural law that our inalienable rights flow, some of which were written into the Constitution in the Bill of Rights. These corrupt politicians can try to redefine what the word "is" is. And one infamous one tried in the past to redefine what "sex" is in his political musings. But they cannot redefine common sense and the laws of nature and nature's God who created them. As Lincoln said they can fool all of the people some of the time and some of the people all of the time but they cannot fool all the people all the time. But these weasels in Washington DC keep trying it and will try it again, imo. And the willing and enabling and corrupt press exemplified by the "Journolist'as" will enable them to try and obfuscate the two legal terms of "born a Citizen of the United States" and "natural born Citizen of the United States". For these snakes, will try to ignore all parts of the Constitution which stand in their way of overthrowing our Constitutional Republic and turning it into a National Socialist state. Again, "natural born Citizens" are the most popular group and is a subset of the larger group of all Citizens. As per Vattel's The Law of Nations or Principles of Natural Law, the "natural born Citizens" define the culture and very nature of a nation. It is from those 100s of millions of "natural born Citizens of the United States" that we must choose our Presidents.
See these charts and the Euler logic diagram and essay for the tools to educate others and fight back against this latest sneaky Republican Party ploy to try to work on one problem all the while hiding the real goal which is obfuscating what a "natural born Citizen of the United States" is, all the while pretending they are addressing of the "anchor baby" problem in the USA, which does indeed need to be addressed by defining the "jurisdiction" clause of the 14th Amendment.
Citizenship Terms Used in the U.S. Constitution - The 5 Terms Defined & Some Legal Reference to Same
What is the solution to the "anchor baby" problem? The real and correct way to solve the "anchor baby" issue is to simply address by a new law passed by Congress defining clearly and legally what the term "and subject to the jurisdiction thereof" in the 14th amendment means when it says "All those born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are Citizens of the United States". It does not take a constitutional amendment to do that! Doing that 'definition law' for a legal term in the 14th Amendment, they would solve the "anchor baby" issue without messing with "natural law" terms such as exist in Article II or having to amend the Constitution.
You see "subject to the jurisdiction thereof" means far more than just geographic location of birth. Lawyers know this. Senators know this. But they must write it into a law to straighten out poorly worded court decisions and bureaucratic decisions in the last 100 years or so. That "jurisdiction" term in the 14th Amendment is the term these Senators should address and define with statutory law to solve the "anchor baby" problem which has been created by poor court decisions over the last 100 or so years to enable many more individuals to be declared Citizen of the United States when the framers of the 14th Amendment never so intended the full words of that Amendment to be so loosely interpreted.
Citizenship of the USA is a cherished and highly desired status in this world. It should be better respected and protected. If the parents of a child want their child to become a Citizen of the USA they should legally emigrate to the USA and establish legal residency and become themselves Citizens of the USA, swearing sole allegiance to the USA via naturalization, and thus for their children in the right and proper legal way. They should not just be able to fly here from Brazil, have the baby in the USA, and then return home to Brazil and have that child be considered a U.S. citizen, a child who will grow up with little or no allegiance to the USA in return for the protection U.S. citizenship provides. Likewise two illegal alien Mexicans crossing the border into Texas and having the baby in Texas, that child should not automatically be considered a Citizen of the United States. With Citizenship of the USA comes the protection of the most powerful nation on earth. But in return for that protection, the nation expects full and sole allegiance to the USA. These "anchor babies" and their alien parents do not give that in return for the protection they seek in the Citizen of the U.S. status by their gaming the system as it is now operating.
Also, another key point when you listen to these obfuscating Senators speak on TV. Please note that the words "natural born Citizen of the United States" are not in the 14th amendment despite what the obfuscating politicians will try to imply or even say at times with a lying but straight face. The 14th amendment did not modify or amend Article II and did not modify or amend what the meaning of the natural law legal term of art "natural born Citizen of the United States" means.
Senator Graham is taking the lead on this because he trying to provide cover for his good friend and buddy Senator McCain on the "natural born Citizen" problem that Senator McCain had in the 2008 election and still has. This is all part of the continuing cover up of what the political parties did in the fraudulent Presidential election of 2008. The fix was in for the 2008 election and the cover up continues.
No Senator Lindsey Graham (good buddy RINO and right hand man of the RINO-in-Chief -- Senator John McCain) ... the proper way to fix the "anchor baby" problem in the USA is by passing a new law by Congress to define what the words "subject to the jurisdiction thereof" in the 14th Amendment means, ... not to try and amend the Constitution or to blur the meaning of other legal terms in other parts of the U.S. Constitution, the fundamental law of our land and Republic.
