One of the most obvious reasons the Supreme Court has refused to take any eligibility case is that it -the Supreme Court- has already decided the matter of Obama’s eligibility for office–in 1875. Reaffirmed several times since then and even by Congress in 2008, there is no need for a ‘clarified’ definition of ‘natural born citizen’, and Obama can be removed right now…not by impeachment, not by a
Congressional wimps ‘r us hearings, not by the 25th Amendment–but by his immediate arrest.
- The binding language in the Constitution, Article II, Section 1, Clause 5, that requires the president be a natural born citizen:
“No person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty-five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.”
- The binding legal precedent (h/t Cedartree) as to the definition of natural born citizen:
“At common law, with the nomenclature of which the framers of the Constitution were familiar, it was never doubted that all children born in a country of parents who were its citizens became themselves, upon their birth, citizens also. These were natives or natural-born citizens, as distinguished from aliens or foreigners.” Minor v Happersett 1875
“Under our Constitution, a naturalized citizen stands on an equal footing with the native citizen in all respects save that of eligibility to the Presidency.” Luria v. U.S., 1913
The Fourteenth Amendment was definitively a statement about slaves becoming citizens of the United States; and the arguments from the flat-earth eligibility deniers have been thoroughly discredited. They have managed to distract the general public away from this dangerous threat to our national security…and those that continue to cover for him will one day have to tell their children–from their own jail cell– how they allowed this mess to go on.
Until Minor v. Happersett is overturned, the SCOTUS holding stands: Obama is not eligible to be president of the United States. He is only a usurper.
The Provost Marshal is nominated by the President and Defense Secretary…and the Defense Secretary would have to give the order to arrest…what to do when the usurper has control ?
Put on your big boy pants and arrest him or resign.
