By all accounts, Harold was a bright child. He grew up in America. He went to school and had a bright future ahead of him.
Harold’s full life was cut short in a violent moment.
While few people had ever heard of Harold before his death, many did afterwards.
And in death, something shocking happened.
What was so shocking, especially when it is compared to the death of someone else recently in the news?
Harold is Harold Greene, Major General United States Army.
On August 5th, General Greene was killed by a Taliban terrorist. He was returned to America with full military honors. It has been a tradition that the President attends the funeral of flag officers killed in the line of duty. Richard Nixon attended the funeral of a Major General killed in Vietnam and George W. Bush attended the funeral of Lieutenant General Timothy Maude, who was killed in the 9/11 attacks.
While Major General Greene was buried, Barack Obama was golfing. The Vice President wasn’t there either. Neither was the Secretary of Defense. Flags were not even lowered to half staff.
Four days after Harold Greene gave his life for America, Michael Brown was killed in Ferguson Missouri.
It is safe to say, Brown was at best a thug.
The media has repeatedly shown photos of Brown flashing gang signs. Some media outlets have even associated him with a specific gang. In the minutes before his death, Brown committed a robbery at a local convenience store. According to other reports, Brown struck officer Darren Wilson and shattered his orbital bone.
Obama is sending a three-person delegation to Michael Brown’s funeral.
Obama would not attend the funeral of the highest ranking military officer killed in the line of duty since 9/11, yet he will send a delegation to the funeral of a thug.
When Margaret Thatcher, one of America’s staunchest allies and Ronald Reagan’s partner in bringing down Soviet communism, died Obama sent only a small low-level delegation to her funeral. The snub was not missed by the British.
When Chris Kyle, the most lethal American sniper in history was murdered, there was no expression of sympathy from the White House. There was no White House delegation at his funeral.
American heroes die and Obama goes to the golf course.
A thug dies and he gets a White House delegation.
No wonder real Americans hold Obama in contempt.
John J. and Harry: I'm not going to argue with you guys indefinitly, because we are all in agreement that Obama is a fraud, a traitor, and an embarassment/enemy of this country, regardless of his birth! However I am pretty sure that if you are born on US soil, you qualify to be President or VPt, whether born of illegal immigrants, or if your parents have ties to the US going back 10 generations ! It has also been established that Ted Cruz who has now renounced his Canadian citizenship/allegiance, for that purpose, now qualifies to run and be elected, should it be the case !
We agree to disagree John.......the blood-line always follows the male....the female has nothing to do with establishing name or natural born citizen...it's the male. Obama was born as a dual citizen of GB and the US...from his father(GB) and mother(US). Dual allegiances were unacceptable to our Founding FAthers.......totally in opposition to what the Founding Fathers envisioned...that's why they clearly established both parents must be US citizens at the time of birth of a child for the child to be a "natural born citizen".
John Gerard, we do agree on the assessment of Obama as a fraud/traitor/embarassment/enemy to the U.S.
However you comment that you are "pretty sure" you qualify to be President, whether born of illegal immigrants, etc. is grossly incorrect.
I have repeatedly posted clauses of the U.S. Constitution, and Amendments which clarify this. One cannot be a dual citizen and be eligible, nor can one be eligible if only one of the parents is a citizen of the U.S.
Please go back and read all that has been posted for your benefit. This will make you better informed in your arguments with those who disagree with you about Obama / Soetero (Citizen of Indonesia - British Subject).
In fact, both parents MUST be natural born citizens to make the offspring eligible to become President.
Obama has usurped this law with the assistance of Nancy Pelosi who vetted him as a natural born citizen when in fact he is NOT.
Section 1 of Article Two of the United States Constitution sets forth the eligibility requirements for serving as president of the United States:
|“||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 Twelfth Amendment states, "No person constitutionally ineligible to the office of President shall be eligible to that of Vice-President of the United States." The Fourteenth Amendment does not use the phrase natural-born citizen. It does provide that "All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside."
Eight of the first nine presidents – Martin Van Buren being the exception – as well as early potential presidential candidates, were born as British subjects in British America before the American Revolution but were eligible for the office by virtue of having been citizens at the time that the Constitution was adopted.
The purpose of the natural born citizen clause is to protect the nation from foreign influence. Alexander Hamilton, a Convention delegate from New York, wrote in Federalist No. 68 about the care that must be taken in selecting the president: "Nothing was more to be desired than that every practicable obstacle should be opposed to cabal, intrigue, and corruption. These most deadly adversaries of republican government might naturally have been expected to make their approaches from more than one quarter, but chiefly from the desire in foreign powers to gain an improper ascendant in our councils." St. George Tucker, an early federal judge, wrote in 1803 that the natural born citizen clause is "a happy means of security against foreign influence", and that "The admission of foreigners into our councils, consequently, cannot be too much guarded against." Delegate Charles Cotesworth Pinckney of South Carolina said in a speech before the Senate, "to insure experience and attachment to the country, they have determined that no man who is not a natural born citizen, or citizen at the adoption of the Constitution, of fourteen years residence, and thirty-five years of age, shall be eligible."
There was also a perception that a usurper from the European aristocracy could potentially immigrate and buy his way into power. Constitutional scholar Akhil Amar points out that the laws of England specifically allowed a foreign-born head of state, and that this had been an unhappy experience for many who had immigrated to the United States.
Colonel Riley is right and I do not comment as "pretty sure".
We're both rowing in the same boat brother, we need to get rid of Obama.
John: I listened to "them" argue all of the points on FOX News, and that is what they finally said that so long as the mother is American born, then, their offspring can run for President. It has to be the mother, though, not the father.
However, there is one story that says that it is possible that Obeyme's mother wasn't actually born on US soil since her family had lived in other countries. But, anyway, that is how John McCain was able to run for President is due to the fact that his mother was born here because he was actually born in Panama.
to be Natural born, to be American president, both mother & father has to be born in America, !! you have to be( Natural Born )
Jean, Read John J. Little Eagle Freeman's post below. His response is exact.
Your entire post is truncated (words cut off). Unfortunately for your points, the important words, i.e., natural born, etc. do not appear in the context they appear in the articles quoted.
That being the case, your entire post has ZERO meaning. Now, in the effort to assist YOU - when you copy and paste, do so in another program such as MSWord, then reduce the font size. Then try to repaste. It worked for me and thus ALL of the text appeared which further legitimized my post.
You are wrong, He is not LEGIT! he was born in KENYA to a Muslim father who was a British subject, that made Obama a British, Muslim subject !(! Not legit )
Henry: I didn't say he is legit....I just repeated the point argued on FOX. :)
to; Cracker; ( FOX WAS WRONG )
Oh, you don't mean that FAUX could possibly be wrong, do ya??? Gee, I thought they were right about everything DADGUMMIT!! :))))
Sorry according to the Law of Nations by Vattel. The children follow the Father's birth, so when Obama was born, his father was a Kenyan and since Kenya at the time of his birth was a british coloney, he BO had dual citizenship and can NOT and should NEVER have been confirmed to the Office of the Presidency for this reason. We don't know his history, so we don't know what has been faked or covered over in his lifetime. He is a blank page, a USURPER TO OFFICE, and maintained by BOTH PARTIES IN CONGRESS. I would almost bet you that the Supreme Court knows he is not eligible for Office, but gave him the Oath to get him into office anyway. They will pay for that mistake.....
