Natural Born Citizen – Why it Should Matter to Both Republicans and Democrats By Jon Hubbard


By Jon Hubbard
There has been a lot of misinformation and confusion regarding the true definition of the term natural born Citizen. Some say that being just a Citizen of the U.S. is all that is required to be considered a natural born Citizen. The Framers of the US Constitution decided, after much debate, that the President must be not just a US Citizen, but a 'natural born Citizen.' Only the President is required to be a natural born Citizen....all other offices need only be a Citizen of the United States.

Article II Section 1, Clause 5 of the U.S. Constitution 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;..."

To qualify as a 'natural born Citizen' of the United States, both parents must be US Citizens (either natural born, native born or naturalized Citizens) at the time the child is born in the USA.
The 'natural born Citizen' requirement to be president is a 'national security' requirement, because our Framers did not want the Commander-in-Chief of the military to have multiple, or dual citizenships. In other words, the President of The United States must not have allegiances to any country other than the United States of America!
During the Constitutional Convention of 1787, discussions between Founding Fathers John Jay, Alexander Hamilton, and George Washington led them to choose the definition of natural born Citizen provided by Emerich de Vattel's "Law of Nations or Principles of Natural Law," Book 1, Chapter 19, Section 212, (1758). According to "Law of Nations," natural born Citizen is a child born in the USA of two (2) U.S. Citizen parents. Vattel's Law of Nations defines how being a Natural Born Citizen differs from a classification of citizenship given to those simply born in the United States. Natural born and simply being born in the USA does not share the same meaning! The parents can be US Citizens by birth or they can be US Citizens by Naturalization after immigrating to the USA. But to create a natural born Citizen of the USA, 'both' parents must be US Citizens at the time the child is born on USA soil.
The Framers even recognized the "Law of Nations" within the US Constitution, where in Article 1, Section 8 it states, "The Congress shall have Power To define and punish Piracies and Felonies committed on the high Seas, and Offenses against the "Law of Nations."
John Jay wrote a letter to George Washington stating that the citizenship requirement for the Office of Commander-in-Chief of our armies should contain a 'strong check' against foreign influence. Jay recommended to Washington, and Washington agreed, that the Commander of our Military be open only to a 'natural born Citizen.' Thus, both Washington and Jay agreed that simply being a 'born citizen' was not sufficient to ensure against foreign influence. They wanted allegiance to be solely to the USA. The word 'natural' goes to the citizenship of the parents via of natural law as defined in Vattel's "Law of Nations."
According to an article on World Net Daily,
 "There have been 8 attempts by members of Congress during the years Barack Obama was developing a power base and running for President, to remove the Constitution's requirement that the president be a natural born Citizen, suggesting an organized strategy." They clearly knew the true meaning of natural born Citizen, otherwise why would they have attempted to change or eliminate this requirement if not to usurp the law?
This is not a Democrat vs Republican issue, but a constitutional issue that applies to candidates of all parties. The reason Barack Obama is not eligible to be President of the United States has nothing to do with the argument over where he was born. However, by his own admission, Obama's father was never a US Citizen, which in and of itself makes Barack Obama ineligible to be President of The United States. Likewise, Senator Ted Cruz (R) is ineligible because he was born in Canada, not in the United States, and his father was not a US Citizen at the time of Senator Cruz's birth. Neither Marco Rubio (R) or Bobby Jindal (R) are eligible to be President because one or both of their parents were not US Citizens at the time of Senator Rubio's nor Governor Jindal's births.
We must decide if The United States of America is indeed a nation of Laws, and if the US Constitution is indeed the Law of the Land. If so, there can be no argument that a 'constitutionally unqualified' person has indeed occupied the Office of The President of the United States since January 2009! The question now must be, what are we going to do about it?






Obama Spent $4k on Marijuana While Visiting Colorado


Obama Spent $4k on Marijuana While Visiting Colorado


On Friday, a Secret Service agent alleged that President Barack Obama ordered him to spend approximately $4,000 on purchasing marijuana during a recent Colorado visit. And now, that agent has been fired by the Department of Homeland Security for carrying out that order.
The “Commander in Spleef” was in Colorado last week, partly on vacation while also meeting and greeting Americans on the street, delivering speeches, and hanging out with Governor John Hickenlooper. The incident allegedly happened on Tuesday evening, while visiting Denver, with Obama asking now-former Secret Service agent Tom Brannigan to run an especially questionable errand.
“He told me he had `the need, the need for weed.’ It sounds corny, but he actually did say that,” Brannigan claims. “So he gave me a bunch of money and told me to `scare up some quality buds.’ I didn’t think it was right or wrong. I’m a Secret Service agent. I’m not paid to ask questions about morality.”
Brannigan took the $4,000 in cash to a chic, trendy marijuana boutique store called “Euflora” in Denver, where the staff allegedly helped him pick out the perfect drugs for President Obama. “I was supposed to get him three-grand’s worth of pot, and use that last thousand to silence whoever I purchased it from. But they insisted they’d protect the identities of their clientele, no matter who it was,” Brannigan says. “So I spent all of it on marijuana.”
Brannigan claims Obama was “thrilled” with his purchase, and spent the evening “smoking up” with Governor Hickenlooper and Denver Nuggets basketball player Ty Lawson. He also says Obama was planning to bring most of the marijuana back to Washington DC with him, though he couldn’t confirm or deny whether Obama had actually done that, or if he had smoked all of the marijuana before leaving Colorado.
But despite the fact Brannigan was supposedly acting on orders given by President Obama directly, Secret Service Director Julia Pierson fired him on Tuesday, July 15th, for quote “gross negligence and dereliction of duty,” shortly after another Secret Service agent informed her of what had happened in Denver.
“Buying the President illegal street drugs puts him in harm’s way, and that’s the opposite of what we in the Secret Service are supposed to do,” Pierson allegedly told Brannigan while sacking him. “Your job is to protect the president. That’s it. If he wants to shoot himself, you stop that from happening. And if he wants to overdose on drugs, you stop that as well.”
Brannigan served in Afghanistan with the United States Army Rangers from 2003 to 2005, and then in Iraq from 2005 to 2008. before the Secret Service recruited him. He was assigned to President Obama’s protection detail in 2011. Since news broke of his firing, the Koch Brothers have reportedly offered him a job as a privately-contracted bodyguard, though Brannigan has not hinted toward whether he’d take that offer or not.

7/17 - Interfax news agency reporting Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 was shot down from altitude of 10km by ground-based missile.
What You Need To Know
On multiple occasions this week AlertsUSA subscribes were notified via text messages to their mobile devices regarding the downing of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 (MH-17) in Ukraine near the border of Russia in the troubled Donetsk region. The aircraft was a Boeing 777-200 twin-engine passenger airliner that was en route from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur carrying 298, which includes passengers and crew.
U.S. intelligence sources state that the aircraft was shot down using a surface to air missile and both the Ukrainian and Russian governments are pointing their fingers at each other as being responsible.
MH-17 Fliht Map - ALLOW IMAGES
To add some clarity to the blame game and to save readers time wading through the disinformation and redirects of the mainstream media, there is a high likelihood that the militaries of both the US and Russia knew within seconds of the launch of the missile, the location of the launcher, as well as the moment the missile's flight terminated with an impact on or near the aircraft.
While not spoken of widely in public forums, the U.S. and Russia both maintain extensive satellite surveillance capabilities and are constantly on the lookout for what are referred to as "special infrared events," which are the superheated exhaust plumes indicative of a missile launch. This, along considerable ground-based and airborne long-range radars deployed throughout the region, makes it extremely difficult to fly above a certain altitude and NOT be detected, even more so given this is a war zone. Both Russia and the NATO alliance go to great lengths to keep a close eye on what is happening across the three dimensional battlespace and there are few airborne surprises.
With this in mind, it is also safe to assume that while the national command authorities of the U.S., Russia and key NATO member states likely already know most of the details surrounding the event, comparatively little will be shared with civilian authorities or the media as to do so would reveal highly sensitive sources, methods and capabilities. It would also reduce options if, say..., explanations other than the truth were needed.
For instance, while most fingers are pointing toward Russian backed separatists as being responsible as they are already known to have downed multiple Ukrainian military aircraft in just the past few weeks (see this and this), there is another side to this story and as we have shown in the past, the standard mainstream narrative is often far from accurate.
That said, on Wednesday, just one day before the attack on the airliner, the Pentagon publicly expressed deep concerns over the renewed buildup of Russian forces on the Eastern border of Ukraine.
According to Pentagon spokesman Army Col. Steve Warren:
“We believe there are now between 10,000 and 12,000 Russian troops on the border. A few weeks ago, about 1,000 Russian soldiers were along the border. I can’t speak for what they intend to do. Certainly, it is intimidating.”
Suffice it to say this incident and other recent events dramatically compounds tensions in the region and globally. NATO member states are now operating at heightened states of alert, increasing defensive patrols and civil aviation authorities worldwide are directing commercial airlines to completely avoid Ukrainian airspace.
Before it was mothballed in 2001 due to a closer relationship with the U.S., the station was Russia's largest signals intelligence facility abroad, measuring 28 square miles in size and hosting upwards of 3000 intelligence, military and engineering personnel. Given the decline in relations with the U.S. over the last several years and Russia's increased military presence in this hemisphere, the decision was made to reopen the facility.
The agreement finalizing the move was reportedly signed late last week during Russian President Vladimir Putin's visit to the island.

Dear Friend,
During his State of the Union speech in January, President Obama said he hoped 2014 could be "a year of action." Six months have passed since the President issued his challenge, but leaders in the Senate are still refusing to even hold a vote on common sense bills passed by the House. National news personalities like to refer to Congress as a "do-nothing" body. The truth is, Senate leaders have refused to take up 148 of the 189 bills the House has passed. These are bills that would ease burdensome regulations on small businesses and families, establish America's energy independence and stop ObamaCare.
Like you, I am concerned about federal regulations imposed by the Obama Administration. In the House of Representatives, I am calling for increased accountability. H.R. 367, known as the REINS Act, requires Congressional approval for "major rules" imposed by the Washington bureaucrats. Unworkable rules and regulations should not be forced on individuals, families and businesses. America was founded on a system of checks and balances and Congress must be given the power to do so.
We are blessed to have tremendous natural resources right here in North America. Unfortunately, the Obama Administration and leaders in the Senate refuse to expand American energy production. The House passed H.R. 2231, the Offshore Energy and Jobs Act to expand U.S. offshore production. This legislation would give private industry the ability to create over one million new American jobs, lower energy prices, grow our economy and strengthen national security. The bill removes federal government barriers that block production of our own U.S. energy resources. If leaders in the Senate are serious about jobs, lower gas prices, a stronger economy and less reliance on the Middle East to meet our energy needs, they will pass the Offshore Energy and Jobs Act.
Finally, the House of Representatives has voted over 40 times to repeal President Obama's healthcare law. From the beginning, opposition to ObamaCare has been strong and bipartisan. The law is keeping small businesses from growing and is causing monthly premiums to skyrocket for families who are struggling to make ends meet. The House of Representatives is committed to ending the harmful effects of ObamaCare and replacing the mandate with free-market centered ideas that will actually make healthcare affordable and accessible. Washington bureaucrats should never come between doctors and patients.
The House of Representatives has passed legislation to reign in intrusive government regulations, expand energy production, and end ObamaCare. Leaders in the Senate still have the opportunity to make 2014 a year of action by passing these bills. I urge Harry Reid and other Senate leaders to act.
THIS WEEK'S HIGHLIGHTS I am so proud of this great group of students who have been interning in my Washington office this summer. They have done an impressive job assisting my legislative staff and serving the constituents of the Eighth District of Missouri.
Great meeting these Puxico FFA students! They're all officers in their chapter as I was in Salem FFA during high school.
Great visit to the SEMO Food Bank this week in Sikeston. Since 1985, the food bank has provided food to charitable and disaster relief programs in Southeast Missouri. A big thanks to Karen Green, Missy Rice and the entire team of workers and volunteers for their service.
This week in Charleston I visited the Susanna Wesley Family Learning Center. I learned about the center's nutrition services and met some of the kids who benefit from the center's programs. Thank you to Lester Gillespie for showing me around!
Thanks to the crew at the Dexter Queen for a great lunch on Friday! I had the "lotta pig" sandwich. Our congressional district is home to tremendous BBQ!

Do Big Tea Party Groups Support Candidates… or Themselves?


Tea Party Greed 

There was no shortage of individuals and groups jumping on the Dave Brat bandwagon after his upset win last month over Eric Cantor. Smaller, local Tea Party chapters did their part to help his campaign, along with national talk show hosts Glenn Beck, Laura Ingraham and Mark Levin.
But the bigger, national Tea Party groups didn’t give the economics professor at Randolph-Macon College much support at all. How much did they contribute to this intellectual underdog? In financial terms, nothing.
Not one of the Tea Party SuperPACs contributed a dime to the Brat campaign. However, given the dynamics of the race, it’s somewhat understandable.
Any political group wants to contribute to a campaign with a reasonable chance of winning. Up until election night, I don’t think any political handicapper would have predicted an 11-point win for Dave Brat. And – if any Tea Party SuperPACs contributed a sizable amount of money to Brat’s campaign and Eric Cantor won… it would be difficult (if not impossible) to get Cantor’s help on legislation in 2015 and 2016.
However, we find fault with the larger Tea Party groups because they’ve spent more on consultants, fund-raising and salaries than they have on candidates and campaigns.
The three largest Tea Party groups – Tea Party Patriots, Tea Party Express and the Madison Project – have only spent a paltry 5% on election-related activity in the current cycle. Compare that percentage to the Senate Conservatives Fund and FreedomWorks, which have contributed around 40%. In contrast, the average SuperPAC (regardless of political party) spends about 60% of its funds on election-related activities.
According to a Washington Post report, the six largest Tea Party groups have spent over $37.5 million on the mid-term elections so far, and only $7 million went directly to candidates.
So if these funds aren’t going to candidates and campaigns, where (and who) does this money go to?
A notable example is Tea Party Patriots Chairwoman Jenny Beth Martin. She rakes in a cushy $272,000/year salary, plus a comfortable $15,000 per month consulting fee – that’s over $450,000 a year.
Unfortunately, most of these national Tea Party groups have become the “Washington insiders” they claim to hate. And the leaders of these groups (like Jenny Beth Martin) didn’t do a damn thing to help Dave Brat win.
The next time you see a desperate plea from these big groups for money, remember where their money is being spent: On salaries, consultants, even interior decorating. If you want to support a Tea Party candidate, give directly to that candidate’s campaign or local groups only.

EPA's latest power grab: Wage garnishment By Devvy Kidd

“We’ve got to ride the global-warming issue. Even if the theory of global warming is wrong, we will be doing the right thing in terms of economic policy and environmental policy.”
– Tim Wirth, former member of Congress, U.S. under secretary of state for global affairs, “Science Under Siege,” 1993
The unconstitutional capitalism killer, the Environmental Protection Agency ( EPA), has been busy while Americans have been fighting the latest surge of illegal aliens flooding the Texas border.
It’s important to know the back story of the EPA. Article I, Section 8, of the U.S. Constitution does not authorize Congress to legislate in the area of the environment; therefore, the agency is unconstitutional. All 50 states of the union have their own version of the EPA as authorized under the 10th Amendment. There is no need for a federal agency. The states can handle their own environmental needs as authorized by their legislatures.
At the Earth Summit in Rio De Janeiro, June 3-14, 1992, the Secretariat for World Order distributed a nonpublic document titled, “The Initiative for Eco-92 Earth’s Charter.” It reads, in part, under policies that must be implemented, as follows:
The Security Council of the U.N. will inform all nations that outmoded notions of national sovereignty will be discarded and that the Security Council has complete legal, military and economic jurisdiction in any region of the world. … The Security Council of the U.N. will take possession of all natural resources, including the watersheds and great forests, to be used and preserved for the good of the Major Nations of the Security Council.
In the late Dixie Lee Ray’s book, “Environmental Overkill,” one gets a full accounting of what really went on with Al Gore and his loony friends at the Rio Summit. On page 10, it states:
The objective, clearly enunciated by the leaders of the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED), is to bring about a change in the present system of independent nations. The future is to be world government, with central planning by the U.N. Fear of environmental crises, whether real or not, is expected to lead to compliance. If force is needed, it will be provided by a U.N. green-helmeted police force, already authorized by the Security Council.
The EPA is the flagship agency in America to carry out environmental terrorism against our people. Among the most destructive of its tentacles is the Endangered Species Act. One of the most horrific examples of this grotesque act is what happened in Klamath Falls, Oregon, in 2001 when the government shut off life-giving water to the farmers, driving them into bankruptcy. On Jan. 12, 2005, a federal judge ruled that the salmon listing that caused our ranchers and farmers to go under in Klamath Falls was illegally listed!

Obama to override Emergency Alert System with “flip of a switch”


Obama to override Emergency "THIS IS YOU KING" with “flip of a switch”


More shock and awe from the Obama Administration, as his Emperor in Chief wants complete control of the Emergency Alert System (EAS). Can anyone fathom his intent in controlling this system? All the Emperor Nero will have to do is flip a switch and he will be able to address the entire country in an instant. This isn’t the first time that such a rumor has made its way around the mill. Alex Jones has been talking about this since 2011, and possibly much earlier. Any conspiracy theory floating around about Obama has already been discussed and dissected hundreds of times. But now Obama has upped the ante.
The Daily Mail is reporting that the Obama Administration wants to have the power to “communicate” with everyone in the nation instantly with the “flip of a switch.” Why does this matter, and why is it worth mentioning?
The ability to override the existing Emergency Alert System, which currently allows radios and TV stations to forward emergency messages in a chain-like manner, gives Obama the power to dismantle the system altogether. He can cut off the power, he can seize complete control of the operating system. Obama is Big Brother. With the flip of a switch, there goes any semblance of freedom and systematic order. All communications will be under the control of a tyrant.
The Obama administration quietly announced on Tuesday that it intends to change the way Americans learn about natural disasters and other major emergencies during radio and TV broadcasts, giving the president the ability to flip a switch and address the entire nation at once.
Most messages in the system are restricted to specific states, counties or other geographic areas. But now the Federal Communications Commission has filed public notice of a rule change that would bypass the daisy-chain entirely and give the federal government instant access to all the nation’s airwaves at once, in the event of a national emergency.
‘Call me crazy, but I have a feeling we’re going to see the definition of an “emergency” get looser and looser – especially as we get closer to an election.’
The EAS is already vulnerable as it is, having succumbed to a hacking last year in Montana. While it is true that most people get their emergency updates from social media today, the ability of the government to instantly seize control of all EAS protocol is terribly concerning. Most people realize our private information isn’t really private. Every person is tracked, monitored and corralled, whether people chose to believe it or not. Americans are branded cattle, and Obama is penning the people in tighter to where there is no breathing room.
Obama’s intentions can never be trusted. In having the ability to flip the switch and commandeer the EAS himself, it is only natural to assume that he has designs for the people that have yet to be realized. He is making plans to enforce martial law, in the event of a certain terrorist attack. The timing of which is not known, but it will happen and at his instigating. He is readying his team, putting the key players into position. The power will be his, with the “flip of a switch.” It will be lights out America.

By Chuck MacNab 

Radical Democrats understand their Party's long term objective. It is to overwhelm Republicans, conservatives and independents with numbers of voters so deeply committed to Saul Alinsky's ideas of totally controlling the lives of people "for their own good" that the concepts supporting freedom put in writing by America's Founding Fathers will be eliminated. One of the current tools of choice in attaining this objective is the Obama engineered flood of illegal immigrants coming across the southern border. Obama is not the only President responsible for neglecting the border. However he is responsible for the current massive invasion that has been inflicted upon the country without regard for the health, economic welfare, national security and general well being of the population. In short, it is a political strategy that is one of the most irresponsible ever devised by a leader of the United States and his Party.

In 2008, just after the election of Barack Obama, we predicted in a commentary that we would see the most corrupt Administration the country has ever known. Unfortunately the prediction was accurate and it gives us no solace to see it become reality. 

Some of the current Administration's methods have become apparent. Among them is the appointment of radicals who will lie, stone-wall, illegally spy upon and even violate the law in using their authority of office to eliminate political opposition. They are reaching deep into the military command structure to retain only those who will agree to mold the military into a social welfare organization and drop national defense to a second or third level mission (behind serving hors d'oeuvres at the White House). Lefties hate the military, so sending pink slips to soldiers actually fighting in combat zones is "no big deal!" They selectively choose who, what and where according to their political views. They insist on the cooperation of cabinet appointees and others to warp or ignore traditional and long held obligations to the people and their Representatives. They engage in outright lies and cover-ups concerning important national responsibilities.

Concerning the left wing radicals currently running the government, there should be no doubt about their long term objective. Georgetown University Law Professor Jonathon Turley's testimony before Congress should make it clear to all who make the effort that the Democrats currently in power will use any and every method at their disposal to maintain their power in office and, thus, their control over the people. Professor Turley is a Democrat and is no conservative by any stretch, yet he is alarmed by the power grab coming from the current Administration. It is, in his view, dangerous and unprecedented!

The aim of the Alinsky wing of the Democrats is to create a political party where overwhelming numbers of people are dependent upon their largesse and will vote eternally to keep them in power. As we have stated in many previous commentaries, if Republicans, conservatives, independents, evangelicals, Tea Partiers, Libertarians and others who make up the electorate in the U.S. do not vote, and vote united in the coming election, to replace the current radical office holding Democrats, we will be well past the point of no return in creating "The United States of Chicago!"

the more it will hate those who speak it."
