Occam’s razor (or Ockham’s razor) is often expressed in Latin as the lex parsimoniae (translating to the law of parsimony, law of economy or law of succinctness). The principle is popularly interpreted as “the simplest explanation is usually the correct one”. When competing hypotheses are equal in other respects, the principle recommends selection of the hypothesis that introduces the fewest assumptions and postulates the fewest entities while still sufficiently answering the question. It is in this sense that Occam’s razor is usually understood.
As applied to the question of Obama’s failure to produce even one document that affirmatively identifies him as a natural born citizen, the following question applies:
What is the likelihood that Obama is hiding documents that:
- are harmless and benign?
- contain damaging information?
Separating the two options with a razor, it is clearly door number 2.
Do you see why Obama’s backers had to discredit any search for the Birth Certificate, and why he had to lie to his robots to convince them to defend a worthless electronic image of a forged document?
Obama’s efforts have been to quash the Prima facie evidence of fraud…his birth certificate.
The Natural Born Citizen
From the discussion in these pages and many other blogs, our view into the world of the Founders’ intention as they created the constitution has been very broad and deep. From this history we know the following:
- The President and CIC must have one allegiance, or loyalty to the United States. Allegiance is determined by citizenship.
- For the CIC only, requirements are that the President be a natural born citizen and born in the United States of two U.S. citizen parents.
- The citizenship of a person changes if adopted, and depending on age of adoption, the original U.S. citizenship must be reaffirmed through naturalization by the age of 21.
- A naturalized (Fourteenth Amendment) citizen is not the same as a natural born citizen
The one piece of paper that is Prima Facie evidence of meeting the constitutional requirements to serve as President and CIC is the Birth Certificate. That paper proves his place of birth and citizenship at birth citizenship of the parents, and subsequent actions that effect citizenship.
According to the definition of ‘natural born citizen‘ which this blog adopts, it doesn’t matter where Obama was born as he has admitted in his books and on his website that his father was British/Kenyan and never was or intended to become an American citizen. Since citizenship at birth is inherited from the father, by definition, Obama is British, and therefore is not a natural born citizen. This viewpoint is derived from the analysis of the body of law referred to as the ‘Law of Nations’ by several scholars, noting that this body of law is cited both in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. John Jay’s letter to Washington, and other documents, as discussed by several excellent sources, also document the effort to craft the CIC”s position as totally immune from foreign influence. The original language of Article II, Section I, Clause 5 was altered to ensure this.
The primary legal argument against this view essentially refutes the concept of two citizen parents, and insists that NBC means ‘born in the USA’ only, a view advanced by Blackstone and related texts.
Obama’s handlers have fought the disclosure of his birth certificate with everything they have, as it totally exposes the false story of “Obama”, and is enough to remove him immediately from office. Think of the number of people who will also have to be removed from office…do you think that is why everyone is so ‘ignorant’ and dismissive? duh 🙄
In pursuit of identifying Obama’s deceit, I believe his operations have also infiltrated our own ranks and perhaps stirred up other divisions or at the very least, allowed mixed messages. Think of:
- the precedent set by dozens of case dismissals based standing and lack of jurisdiction;
- the huge investment of time in proving the electronic image of the COLB to be a forged COLB, when the burden of proof rests solely with Obama;
- the continued dismissal of the Birth Certificate as a legitimate issue to pursue even while calling for resignations of Congress and national votes of no confidence;
- The critique of the defense strategy of LTC Lakin for not taking the Vatell view of the definition of ‘natural born citizen’ and focusing on the birth certificate only, speaking widely of perceived consequences of the approach is not taken without discussion of the specifics of military law and Courts Martial that limit the applicability of every judgment.
The key casualty of arguing over which is the best approach is evidence. Do we forget the need to produce the Prima Facie evidence as we argue the principle?
Where is the NBC Definition Resolved?
Resolution of the meaning of ‘natural born citizen’ will be in the U.S. Supreme Court, if a case ever gets there. Of the current cases that are out there, the Kerchner v. Obama and Congress has the best documented record in history of the meaning of the term ‘natural born citizen’. There is no other comparable record of this definition in Blackstone or its related texts, the Fourteenth Amendment, and the Obama defense team has spent all its time on frivolous strawmen.
Given the record of the judiciary, and our growing collective awareness of the corruption within the system, including the fact that all federal judges are agents of the government, appreciate that there is risk going to the Supreme Court. But the risk of staying where we are now is far worse, in fact, unacceptable for most of us reading these pages.
In this resolution at the Supreme Court level, evidence will have to be submitted, ergo, the birth certificate and all the other records to ascertain Obama’s citizenship. But also at the Supreme Court level, the definition of nbc will be argued, the historical texts presented, et cetera, to compliment the evidence in the record.
How Do we Get the Evidence?
Having firmly established what we understand the definition of natural born citizen to be, the work then falls into several categories. On the definition of natural born citizen, and the failure of Obama to qualify and Congress to vet him properly, the Kerchner lawsuit must be allowed to run its course. Even if that case does not make it, the court will still have the issue of obtaining the prima facie evidence, as it is a well documented fact that Obama has not proven conclusively he was born in the United States.
As an aside, the attempt to lower the standard for Obama by insisting an (a) electronic image of a (b) COLB was sufficient to prove his eligibility has been a tactic used by his handlers quite successfully. Note that there are two parts of this: acceptance of an electronic image as satisfactory, and the use of a certification of live birth, rather than birth certificate. Obama is the classic ‘affirmative action’ poseur, where his looks, charm (aackk), celebrity status, and skin color give him a ‘pass’ where no one else would be allowed to.
Berg and Taitz
On the actual evidence of a certified long-form birth certificate, the cases of Berg and Taitz are the most prominent. Using the tool of ‘quo warranto’, and focusing on the military’s need to know if Obama is eligible for the office, these efforts have tried,but failed to get to the discovery point where documents could be reviewed.
This of course is where we see the precedent developed of dismissal based on standing and witness the potential corruption of federal judges in reviewing this issue. While we can speculate on the extent to which Obama has threatened these judges, the overwhelming feeling I get is the lack of courage: no one wants to be the first one to tell Obama he is ineligible. Their careers are more important than the Nation and apparently their conscience as well. Political correctness on steroids?
And Mr. Berg, to his credit, keeps going. A march on Washington to demand the birth certificate–the prima facie evidence–is scheduled for October 23, 2010 on the west lawn of the Capitol. Within this framework, you can join whether you think NBC means ‘born in the USA’ or whether you think it means ‘born in the USA of two citizen parents’. Either way, we need the evidence.
LTC Terry Lakin
Which then brings us to the case of LTC Terry Lakin. This is the case of a decorated soldier refusing to deploy to Afghanistan until he sees the evidence that Obama is eligible to give the orders. What is that evidence? The birth certificate. In facing deployment and Courts Martial, the theory of ‘natural born citizen’ is less important than the evidence that Obama was in fact born in the United States.
And what is the opposition’s strategy here? Just by observation, the strategy is to throw the case out by committing reversible error. First we have the threat to taze the LTC. Next the decision by Judge Lind was so unfounded in the law, blatantly so, that it creates ample room for appeal and mistrial. Where in the law is evidence denied a defendant based on it being ’embarassing’? If Judge Lind knows something about this, then she is in direct violation of Title 18 section 4, misprision of felony, and is abusing her power by denying LTC Lakin’s discovery request. Judge Lind doesn’t want to be the one to grant discovery either…so she deliberately throws the case. And I agree with Captain Neil Turner, the JAG’s defending Obama have already committed treason.
Other elements of the military’s strategy against LTC involve the deliberate breaking chain of command through insisting that the Courts Martial order came from the Pentagon, not the Commander in Chief. And just in time to increase the threat, Obama revises the manual on military courts martial, most likely to eliminate himself from making the direct order. What does this do? Make the birth certificate –the prima facie evidence–irrelevant.
The deeper implication of this executive order is that it achieves a breakdown of our institutions, systems, and military command–the goal of any good communist fighting a Constitutional Republic. Lawlessness on steroids. Remember that Obama does not have the authority to issue executive orders. We need the evidence.
We need to SCREAM BLOODY MURDER over this case, because that’s what it is. LTC Lakin faces at least four years at hard labor in Ft. Leavenworth if no one knows about what is happening. Congress needs to be notified, posters need to go up, and people need to talk about this.
Your choice, Mr. Obama. Produce your birth certificate or sentence a decorated Army officer to forced hard labor.
And if you are legally inclined, time to help with military law, dismissals, appeals…and respectfully, not to argue whether the definition of ‘natural born citizen’ is included and correct.
We need the prima facie evidence, as well as for the proper court to hear and deliberate on the constitutional meaning of ‘natural born citizen’.
Other campaigns focusing exclusively on eligibility include the Usurpathon, the Stop the Treason Campaign, and the American Grand Jury deliberations. Reverend Manning has supported the eligibility campaigns of many and has several of his own underway. These efforts are targeting Congress, state, and local officials with their responsibility to investigate Obama’s eligibility.
In this arena, the effort has been to find a way to talk with people about the issue of Obama’s eligibility. Asking the question ‘can a dual citizen be President’ will almost uniformly produce an answer ‘no’. That Obama is a dual citizen of course we know, but it was also confirmed by the State Department. Problems with dual citizenship and the Presidency are described here, but generally the United States ‘tolerates’ dual citizenship but does not recognize or encourage it. Certainly because of the allegiance (loyalty) requirements of the Presidency, it is doubtful that a dual citizen could be President of the United States.
An important part of these efforts also include the exposure of Nancy Pelosi’s commission of election fraud, and treason, in 2008 by knowingly falsely certifying Obama’s constitutional eligibility for the Presidency. These opportunities are live, still available to pursue, and are documented here.
State-based efforts to enact legislation requiring constitutional eligibility certification as a condition of ballot access also are underway, with Arizona being the first state to pass such legislation.
It is all about the constitution, and constitutional accountability!
Everyone in this campaign–no matter what your personal definition of ‘nbc’–recognizes the danger the United States is in, and absolute need to remove the usurper from office. Is every angle covered? Certainly the efforts underway need increased participation–with laser focus.
This violation of the constitution is so fundamental that in my opinion, it must be addressed immediately with unity and strength. Absolutely I agree that there is much work to do in so many other areas, the 2010 elections, the fight against legislation, and he building of our state’s sovereignty. Perhaps the idea of platoons–small groups of people that focus only on eligibility–has traction wherever you are.
Can Occams Razor Be Applied to the Definition of NBC?
Unlike Obama’s refusal to divulge basic prima facie evidence of his eligibility for the Presidency, for which the simple answer is that he is hiding damaging documents, the concept of ‘natural born citizen’ cannot so easily be remedied by Occams Razor in my opinion. Here is the question set up to see if this is true.
What is the likelihood that ‘natural born citizen’ as used in Article II Section I Clause 5 of the Constitution means:
- born in the United States?
- born in the United States of two parents who are U.S. citizens?
Can you answer this question simply? Can the general public? It almost certainly requires study!
Those of us who have studied, written about, and absorbed the historical information and legal materials on this definition would probably choose door number 2…precisely because the term ‘natural born citizen’ is used only once in the Constitution. Why wasn’t just a ‘Citizen’ appropriate for the President?
Those in either branch of Congress who assume its just door number 1 are lowering their standards for the Commander in Chief by accepting a forged, electronic document purporting to be a COLB, not even a birth certificate. This is unacceptable. Lucas Smith just delivered copies of a Kenyan birth certificate for Obama to every member of Congress, upping the anti: at least Mr. Smith produced paper–a certified copy of a document. Prima facie evidence–even if you believe nbc means ‘born in the U.S.’? What has Obama produced?
But Congress could begin an investigation and request the prima facie evidence–the documents–as part of its study. If it ventured into the definition of ‘natural born citizen’, it is likely that Congress would seek the Supreme Court’s guidance…ergo, all the Kerchner materials are entered into the record.
I personally believe that the first serious investigation that Congress conducts produces a resignation from Obama. He is then absolutely still fair game for prosecution for crimes against our country, money laundering, bribery, and perhaps the other serious charges he is likely to face.
On first principle, Obama is likely hiding prima facie evidence because they contain damaging information–his ineligibility for the office he now occupies.
To be sure, the burden of proof rests with Obama to put up or resign, and that must be our demand. Congress must investigate before it attempts to do any other legislative work for the Nation. Its a stop work order, Congress, with the exception of the investigation of Obama’s eligibility.
Every branch of the government needs to be permanently protested until this issue is addressed, including the State Department and Supreme Court. Every single official outside of Washington must be met with the ineligibility sign.
Start with the documents, the prima facie evidence. Light the fire of information under the Lakin case–before he goes down silently under the radar. Support in whatever way you can the Kerchner case, and all other efforts to get the Supreme Court to hear and deliberate on the natural born citizen issue. Find or create direct action.
In 2011, we will remove Barack Obama from the White House. He won’t finish his term, and won’t be able to run for re-election. Then our real work begins to walk back the Constitutional violations and dissolve the current network of poseurs who have taken the reigns.
