  1. Goodmorning. Keith, I really appreciate that you have brought attention to the Georgia trial although most journalists apparently don´t want to write about it. However, this morning I read an interesting article on American Thinker by Cindy Simpson, ” Media blackout in Obama Georgia Ballot Eligibility Case”. She was there and she reports about the journalists behaviour. Chilling.

    • I read that, too, and left a comment. I was particularly interested in the link to the John Lott interview about Obama’s rudeness. I had read his story but hadn’t heard the interview. We have so little first hand information about Obama’s past (which is a fascinating story in of itself as to why that is the case) that I relish these personal recollections.

      • We don’t know and we never will and that is very scary especially when
        the media should be digging they are just sticking their heads in the sand. What a dangerous mix an unknown fool for President and a
        press with blinders.

      • Even the Ombudsman of the Washington Post said the paper did too little on Obama’s past. And at this point, editors will look at reporter wanting to do more research and say, “What are you, a birther or something?

        • The press and that includes print and TV types are all in for Obama.
          I don’t doubt for a second they have lots of information they will take
          to their graves before shinning a light on the very unknown man
          that should be an open book. But that only works if you have an R
          after your name.

  2. Batack Obama is a native born citizen – not a natural born citizen! He swore on an affadavit that he was ‘natural born’ in Feb. 08. However, on his website he claims to be native-born.

    Kenya was under British rule when Obama was born. His father was subject to British rule AND so were all of his children.

    It it is ever decided that Obama is native-born, he will also be guilty of perjury!

    Everyone needs to read this:

    • All native born citizens are Natural Born Citizens. The only kind of a US citizen who is not a Natural Born US Citizen is a naturalized US citizen.

      “It is well settled that “native-born” citizens, those born in the United States, qualify as natural born.” It is also clear that persons born abroad of alien parents, who later become citizens by naturalization,” do not.” Jill A. Pryor. The Natural-Born Citizen Clause and Presidential Eligibility: An Approach for Resolving Two Hundred Years of Uncertainty – Yale Law Journal 1988

      “Therefore every person born within the United States, its territories or districts, whether the parents are citizens or aliens, is a natural born citizen in the sense of the Constitution, and entitled to all the rights and privileges appertaining to that capacity.”—William Rawle, A VIEW OF THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. 2d ed. (1829)

      “Under the longstanding English common-law principle of jus soli, persons born within the territory of the sovereign (other than children of enemy aliens or foreign diplomats) are citizens from birth. Thus, those persons born within the United States are “natural born citizens” and eligible to be President…”—- Edwin Meese, et al, THE HERITAGE GUIDE TO THE CONSTITUTION (2005) [Edwin Meese was Ronald Reagan’s attorney general, and the Heritage Foundation is a well-known Conservative organization.]

  3. One more thing. If Castro or Sadaam Hussein had fathered a child in the U.S. with an American woman, would that child ever be qualified to be President? What am I missing here?

    • Re: “If Castro or Sadaam Hussein had fathered a child in the U.S. with an American woman, would that child ever be qualified to be President? ”

      Would Ted Bundy or the unibomber or Charles Manson be eligible? The answer is yes because there is nothing in the US Constitution that bars criminals from becoming president. Why not? For the obvious reason that the writers of the US Constitution assumed that the voters would be smart enough not to vote for criminals, and if they did vote for criminals, then they had to live with the consequences.

      So with the children of foreign dictators. So long as the child was born in the USA, over the age of 35 and lived here for 14 years, then we get to choose. If we decide to vote for Saddam’s child, or the Unibomber, then that is our decision.

      Why is the child of Castro or Saddam not banned from becoming president? Because the meaning of Natural Born Citizen includes all US citizens who were born in the USA. She or he simply falls under that enormous category–some 300 million people.
