Media Silence on Obama Eligibility Raises Questions

Since my article regarding the blow-by-blow account of the Georgia hearing on Obama’s eligibility to appear on that state’s ballot, one question has surfaced more than any other. This is a question which has been posed to me via social media, email and within the nearly 600 comments on that article.

The question is a simple one and a valid one.

Why has there been no media coverage of this?

Clearly, it’s a story.

A sitting President gets subpoenaed. Story.

A sitting President’s ability to be on a state’s ballot at risk. Story.

A sitting president’s attempt to dismiss the case denied. Story.

A sitting president ignores the subpoena. Story.

A sitting President’s attorney sends letter to Georgia Sec. of State saying he won’t participate. Story.

Sec. of State says don’t participate at your own risk. Story.

Hearing takes place, witnesses testify and evidence is presented with no refute from Sitting President’s attorney. Story.

NO MEDIA COVERAGE??? Story.

First, let’s have a look at the media.

The alphabet networks, also known as the mainstream or elite media, ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, MSNBC etc. are all in the can for Obama or in his pocket. We all know that.

Why would they all of a sudden cover a story so potentially harmful to the guy who sends shivers up their collective legs?

This is the media arm of the Obama administration after all. These are the very people who refused to vet candidate Obama and anointed him their supreme leader. They went all in. They shielded Obama during the campaign, they have provided cover during his 3 years in office, they’ve been outwardly dismissive of any mention of his eligibility, they’ve labeled any who question it as nuts, mobs, terrorists, and worse.

At this point, when it actually gains a hearing before a judge and neither Obama nor his attorney show up even under subpoena, why would they now lend credibility to it?

Simple answer is…They wouldn’t.

I think most people realize this and accept it.

But, what of Fox News?

Liberals have for years, tried to paint Fox as nothing but propaganda from the right and they have even set up websites to attempt to delegitimize Fox News. For their part, Fox just keeps winning the ratings battle.

So, why would Fox not cover this?

The answer is complicated and if my suspicions are correct, will not go down smoothly for avid Fox viewers of which, I am one.

For years, outfits like Media Matters has been saying that Fox controls the republican party.

Nothing, I believe, could be further from the truth.

In fact, I am beginning to suspect, that the exact opposite may be true.

The republican party is controlling Fox News.

I’m a “connect the dots” guy and while this is supposition on my part, I can’t for the life of me find another way to explain it.

Romney, as has become apparent, is the republican establishment candidate of choice. We’ve heard of the meltdown the republican establishment was going to have if Newt won in Florida and we all know that Mitt has long been considered to be the next in line for the nomination.

Here is the problem:

Mitt Romney may well not qualify as a “Natural Born Citizen.”

As many know, there have been rumors regarding this but let me connect a few dots.

Mitt’s grandparents left the U.S. amid crackdowns on polygamy before Utah became a state and they moved to Mexico. We all know that. Mitt’s father was born in Mexico. We all know THAT.

Here’s where it gets cloudy.

Did Mitt’s grandparents, specifically his grandfather, Gaskell Romney, become a citizen of Mexico? It seems, SEEMS likely that he did. Gaskell lived there for many years with his wives and when the Mexican civil war broke out, he first sent his wife and kids to El Paso and Gaskell himself made the trip a short time later. One of those kids was a 5-year-old George Romney, Mitt’s father.

Remember, just a week or so ago, during a Florida debate, Mitt got angry over an immigration statement made by Newt and clearly stated that his grandparents immigrated from Mexico.

Does one immigrate to a country of which they are already a citizen?

There are many varying reports concerning George Romney’s citizenship status and that of his father and to say it’s murky is an understatement. Did Gaskell renounce his US citizenship when he fled to Mexico? Did he repatriate when he came back? Did George, Mitt’s father, naturalize? Did he need to?

It’s nearly impossible to tell and rest assured, this was a VERY big question back in 1967 – 1968 when George was running for President. I will leave a link at the end of this article to all of this but be warned, it’ll leave your head spinning.

Bottom line on this part is: Without providing proof of U.S. citizenship either passed to George Romney by Gaskell upon his birth or naturalization documents related to George and/or documented proof that Gaskell was always a U.S. Citizen even when living in Mexico…we can’t really be sure, can we??

Add to this murkiness the fact that those living in the territory Utah, as Gaskell did before fleeing to Mexico, were not automatically considered to be U.S. Citizens when Utah became a state…Which by the way, happened AFTER Gaskell fled.

This is of GREAT importance. In most territories, those living there were considered U.S. Citizens when the territory became a state. THIS WAS NOT THE CASE WITH THE TERRITORY OF UTAH! Since Gaskell was living in the TERRITORY of Utah when he fled to Mexico, he was not considered a U.S. Citizen…or was he? WHO KNOWS??

With the republican establishment solidly behind Romney and Romney’s family history/citizenship in murky waters, is it any wonder Fox News has virtually blacked out any coverage of the Obama eligibility hearing in Georgia? Certainly, I’m not the only one who has noticed the Fox News/Romney buddy fest.

Further connection of dots takes one even deeper.

Many in the republican party and the Tea Party would like to see Marco Rubio on the ticket.

As much as I like Rubio, he doesn’t qualify as eligible according to the constitution.

Joseph Farah point blank said it on Fox News with Sean Hannity. Rubio is not eligible. He’s absolutely correct.

Rubio’s parents fled Cuba and settled in Miami back in 1956. They became U.S. Citizens in 1975. MARCO RUBIO WAS BORN IN MIAMI IN 1971!!! When Marco was born, NEITHER of his parents were U.S. Citizens.

I believe Marco knows he is ineligible. He has stated in no uncertain terms he will NOT be the VP on the ticket.

Here’s the rub.

Listen to the video below. Listen to Hannity’s reaction when Farah says Rubio is ineligible. He’s STUNNED!!

What is just as, if not more telling, is Bob Beckel’s reaction. Many Fox viewers are familiar with Beckel and most can’t stand him. Okay. I’m in that boat. Beckel is VERY well connected and I suspect, he tipped the liberal’s hand here.

BECKEL SAYS RUBIO SHOULD BE THE VP ON THE TICKET AND ANYONE WHO BELIEVES OTHERWISE NEEDS THEIR HEAD EXAMINED!

Why? Ask yourself why a well connected liberal would want the Tea Party favorite in Florida, a staunch conservative, on the ticket.

Here’s why.

BECAUSE IT WOULD PLACE THE REPUBLICAN PARTY IN THE EXACT SAME BOAT AS OBAMA AND THE DEMOCRAT PARTY WHEN IT COMES TO NATURAL BORN ELIGIBILITY!!

Now…add THAT to a murky Romney as the nominee.

Right now, the republican party establishment is pushing a candidate who may, or may not, be able to prove he’s eligible and coupled with the outside chance that nominee might ask someone who is CLEARLY not eligible to join the ticket…it’s a liberal’s dream scenario.

Such an occurrence would wipe out the eligibility issue with Obama. WIPE IT OUT!

Not only THAT, it would render the Constitution itself to a sheet of paper rather than our bedrock law.

How can the republican establishment open the door for Romney and pave the road for Rubio without allowing Obama, nearly proven to be ineligible, to remain in office?

Okay…a few more dots to connect.

So far, Rick Santorum is refusing to release HIS father’s naturalization documents. He might not be eligible either under the Eligibility clause and unless he does release them and they show  that his father was a U.S. citizen at the time of Rick’s birth, Santorum might be rowing the ineligible boat too.

Remember almost a year ago when Obama trotted out that birth certificate? Remember how Fox News made a point to say, in essence, “It’s over. There’s the birth certificate. He’s a citizen so drop it.”

Donald Trump…Running as a Republican and investigating that birth certificate. He was all the rage. All of a sudden, he drops out of the race. He never did release the conclusions of his investigation, did he? Now, he’s no longer registered as a Republican, is he? Now, he’s talking about getting back in.

Did Trump get the goods on Obama? Did he find something about the presumptive establishment nominee, Romney? Who knows??

Here’s the picture and it’s not pretty.

Knowing of all the questions surrounding George Romney’s citizenship and eligibility from 1968, the republican establishment would have to know Mitt’s eligibility would also be questioned. They also realize that if the republicans continue to press on the Obama eligibility issue, they would have to do likewise with THEIR presumptive nominee, Romney.

Fox News has barely blinked an eye on the Georgia hearing regarding Obama and if they gave it the coverage we have at The National Patriot, they know they would be required to do likewise when the Romney eligibility rears ITS head.

Liberals aren’t covering the Obama Georgia hearing for obvious reasons. Fox News isn’t covering it either and the connected dots above may well be the reason why.

This should rock conservatives to the core.

IF Mitt Romney becomes the nominee…His murky family history regarding citizenship could well leave Americans with a choice of one guy who isn’t a natural born citizen and one who may not be in the 2012 election. Such a scenario would relegate the eligibility clause to oblivion and open the door, forever more, to presidential candidates of foreign allegiance.

Both Romney and Santorum MUST…BEFORE the nomination, CLEAR UP ANY AND ALL QUESTIONS surrounding their eligibility with CLEAR AND DOCUMENTED PROOF THAT LEAVE NO DOUBTS!

If they don’t, or can’t, the future of our republic and the constitution itself, are in deep, deep trouble especially if we, as conservatives, set the bar as low for ourselves as the liberals have set it for themselves.

Why should we, as conservatives, allow the liberals to dictate the utter depth of our national aspirations? Only by clearing the high bar can our nation achieve its rightful greatness.

If Fox news hasn’t covered the Georgia hearing on Obama’s eligibility for reasons different than those upon which I have speculated, I would like to know what those reasons are. If we are going to grouse about the liberal media and their complicity, we had damn well better hold Fox News to a much higher level.

Sauce for the goose.

On Thursday January 26th, Fox News devoted a scant 30 seconds via Bret Baier to the Georgia hearing. This morning, Fox News interrupted a political panel discussion for 10 minutes of live coverage from Gobblers Knob of Punxsutawney Phil’s Groundhog Day forecast.  You tell us which story deserved more coverage.

Now, for anyone who thinks The National Patriot’s Blow by Blow Account and subsequent coverage of this hearing in Georgia has been fabricated because they can’t find any media coverage…This is from Fox 5 in Atlanta.

It happened.

  1. And then theres Mitt..

    Is Mitt Romney a “natural born citizen”?

    It is absolutely clear that Mitt Romney is NOT a Natural Born Citizen unless he can prove that George Romney gained citizenship from naturalization prior to Mitt’s birth in 1947.

    Having the Status of Birthright Citizenship Is Not Sufficient to Make One an
    Article II “Natural Born citizen”

    Mitt Romney / Not Eligable to hold the office of {POTUS}.

    Call upon Mitt Romney now to either post Gaskell Romney’s US naturaliztion documents (or repatriated record) or George Romney‘s US naturaliztion documents that he would have filled out and signed when he was 21 years of age, or withdraw from the presidential race as Constitutionally unqualified to take the oath of office of the presidency of the United States.

    Was George Romney (father of Mitt Romney) a U.S. citizen?
    Not according to the historical records.

    b. Colonia Dublán, Galeana, Chihuahua, México, 8 July 1907, d. Bloomfield Hills, Mich., 26 July 1995 [SSDI 577-10-6742], bur. Fairview Cemetery, Brighton, Mich.
    m. Salt Lake City, Utah, 2 July 1931.

    George Romney was born in Mexico to expatriated Mormon parents. George’s father is named Gaskell Romney.

    If George Romney was not a “U.S. citizen” or became naturalized BEFORE Mitt was born, then neither can Mitt Romeny (his son) be natural born.

    What amazes me most is even those I consider intelligent can read the quotes from Congress and SCOTUS rulings etc. and still will argue with what those words mean.

    Folks it honestly is not ROCKET SCIENCE.

    It is simply fact … read the quotes for yourself.

    Just because no one in politics or the media is dealing with any of this?

    None of that ALTERS THE FACTS OR CHANGES what our founders defined this term to mean.

    HERE THEY ARE AGAIN United States v. Wong Kim Ark, 169 U.S. 649 (1898):

    “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.”

    This is straight forward FACT.

    To be a NATURAL BORN CITIZEN … you must be born in the country and your parents must BOTH BE CITIZENS.

    BOTH REQUIREMENTS MUST BE MET!

    PARENTS can be born citizens or naturalized
    (naturalized at the time of the child’s birth).

    If both requirements are not met the child can still be a “US citizen” just not “natural born”.

    No matter how anyone slices, dices or ginsus it Barack Obama has painted himself in a corner with his released Birth Certificate (be it real or fraud).

    His father NEVER WAS A US CITIZEN.

    For sure he does not meet the “natural born” requirement.
    His US citizenship is iffy should his Hawaiian BC turn out to be a fraud.

    Now to further hammer nails into the coffin lid of the Constitution comes Mitt Romney.

    Here is further information just sent my way on his parentage and their citizenship.

    Let me say this again … my research SHOWS NO REPATRIATION OR NATURALIZATION of George Romney.

    That does not mean there is none … it does however cast serious problems into the cogs of what appears to be a well oiled Mitt Romney campaign for President machine.

    I thank Edward Noonan for allowing me to republish this information.
    MITT ROMNEY IS NOT A NATURAL BORN CITIZEN!

    The big question is this…how did George and Gaskell Romney get their US Citizenship back if they ever had it at all?

    If Gaskell (son) and Miles Park Romney (father) who were both Mexican citizens how could they transfer US Citizenship to George Romney?

    Mitt Romney, however, may be a birthright baby because he fell under the 14th Amendment (I doubt they were under the jurisdiction of the US) but it is absolutely clear that Mitt Romney is NOT a Natural Born Citizen unless he can prove that George Romney gained citizenship from naturalization prior to Mitt’s birth in 1947. I have found no records showing this to be the case.

  2. Okay, I followed your dots & I am disturbed so much that I am wondering why the GOP has not united behind Santorum? Or is his past in question as well? Why are they playing a dangerous game that could potentially blow up in their faces when Obama hits back on the campaign trail? Maybe we don’t have one legitimate candidate? Personally I discounted Rubio from the start. I’d rather see Perry in the VP spot, but to each his own vote.

  3. Craig, I’m ashamed to admit that this is the first time I’ve read your work. It surely will not be the last! Your diligent investigative work, your clear writting style, and most of all, your honesty, even when it’s really uncomfortable to take in, is desired and respected. Thank you! I’m very confused ovewre the developements you outlined in the Feb.2 TNP. I need to ruminate over this absurd oddity. At minimum, I have always wanted to see a Pauk Ryan/ Michele Bachman ticket but will have to wait awhile longer for that. No other “top tier” candidate is truely conservative in my view. I fear they may not be as electable as expected.

  4. To MIke above your Definition of Natural born Citizen is Incorrect.

    First let me state that I’m am as Anti Obama as you can be.

    Here is how Naturally born Citizen is Definied.

    Born in the U.S.A. (Unless born to Diplomats of a forgien nation serving that nation) is a natural born citizen {note I think this should be changed to also disallow anyone born to persons illeagally in this country i.e. aliens coming here to have their child born to sponser them}

    The other method of being a natural born citizen is to have “Either Parent” be a U.S. Citizen. It doesnot require both parents to be citizens.

    If they can show a legitimate birth certificate of “either birth in the USA or a parent that was a U.S. citizen at the time of birth then the Baby is a U.S. Citizen.

  5. How interesting…..all these years (I am not that young), a college education and I would have sworn that “Natural Born Citizen” just meant that you were born in the USA, not one who moved here and became a citizen. I would venture to guess that I am not unusual. Perhaps, if our education system did a better job teaching facts, then we might have fewer controversies. Thanks for referring me to the correct information, I just think it would clear up quite a bit if our government put a distinct definition on the term so there was no room for debate.

  6. Odd, that you did not let my comment through. I’m not a spammer, but a legitimate blogger who lives in Metro-Atlanta.

  7. The “Powers ” that are(Bilderbuger Group) run both the Democratic and Republican Parties. They control what goes on in the world. You would think that the Surpreme court would have questioned Obamas birth certificate but they are part of the” Powers ” that are. They are trying to make us a socialist country thus controlling everything that we as citizens do. They want us to crawl back to them on every thing that we do . They want TOTAL CONTROL. Only GOD can fix this Mess. CGW

  8. DO NOT CENSOR THIS POSTING!!! THANKS!! THERE IS NOTHING IN THIS POST THAT WOULD JUSTIFY CENSORING IT!!

    The issue is quite simple. To be President of the USA or to run for the Presidency of the USA, Obama must be a “natural born citizen” according to the Constitution of the USA. The term “natural born citizen” has been defined previously and it requires two conditions:
    1) Obama must be born in the USA.
    Obama’s long form birth certificate that Obama has provided through the White House web site HAS BEEN DECLARED BY MANY EXPERTS TO BE SIMPLY A FORGERY!!!

    —Just a few links on the forged birth certificate that Obama released through the White House web site for those interested:
    –“Obama Birth Certificate Faked In Adobe Illustrator – Official Proof 1 ( Layers )” at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7s9StxsFllY
    –“Obama Birth Certificate Scam? 2011-04-27 Obama.mp4″ at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2eOfYwYyS_c
    –“Adobe book editor positive: Obama certificate is phony” at http://www.wnd.com/2011/06/316749/
    –“Experts: Registrar stamps confirm Obama forgery” at http://www.wnd.com/2011/07/324153/
    –See evidence that Obama forged the birth certificate that was posted on the White House servers on 27 April 2011 (!!) at http://www.scribd.com/collections/3166684
    –See evidence that Obama is using a Social Security Number (SSN) 042-68-4425 that was not legally issued to him but to someone else born in 1890 (!!) at http://www.scribd.com/collections/3260742
    —Just type the keywords Obama birth certificate forged in http://www.google.com and you will find many articles that thoroughly explain why the Obama long form birth certificate that he provided on the White House web site is simply a forgery!!!
    —Do a search in http://www.youtube.com by typing the keywords Obama birth certificate fake and you will see videos demonstrating why the Obama birth certificate that he provided on the White House web site is a forgery!!!

    —Therefore, the only way to check this long form birth certificate is to go to Hawaii to check it directly. In particular, it is indispensable to assess if even this original long form birth certificate in Hawaii is truly genuine that is if it is not also already (!!!) a forgery to cover up for the possible fact that Obama might never have been born in Hawaii!!!

    2) Obama’s parents MUST BOTH be American citizens.
    We know that Obama’s father was a Kenyan and that he NEVER was an American citizen!!!!!
    Therefore, THIS SECOND CONDITION ALONE DISQUALIFIES OBAMA TO RUN FOR THE PRESIDENCY OF THE USA AND IT ALSO DISQUALIFIES OBAMA TO BE PRESIDENT OF THE USA, NO MATTER THE FACT THAT HE WON THE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION!!!!!!

    More, Obama is a former lawyer. Therefore, he knew perfectly well that he was not entitled to run for the Presidency of the USA but he nevertheless did it DISHONESTLY, FRAUDULENTLY, deceiving purposefully the entire American people.

    Furthermore, Obama was confronted with the definition of what a “natural born citizen” is when he directly participated in the investigation of John McCain’s eligibility to run for the Presidency of the USA. Obama then signed Senate Resolution 511 from April 30, 2008 that reveals the indispensable requirement of having two US citizen parents in order to be a “natural born citizen” according to the Constitution of the USA and therefore to be eligible to run for the Presidency of the USA or to be President of the USA!!!!!
    Therefore, once again, Obama knew very well that he FRAUDULENTLY decided to run for the Presidency of the USA despite the fact that he knew perfectly well that he was NOT a natural born citizen and therefore that he was not entitled, according to the Constitution of the USA, to be President of the USA.

    CONCLUSION:
    —Obama is NOT a natural born citizen and therefore he is not entitled to run for the Presidency of the USA nor is he entitled to be President of the USA, no matter the fact that he won the Presidential election!!!!
    —OBAMA REFUSED TO SHOW UP AT A GEORGIA COURT WHEN HE WAS SPECIFICALLY ASKED TO DO SO BY THE JUDGE SIMPLY BECAUSE HE WAS ASKED TO BRING SEVERAL DOCUMENTS THAT WOULD HAVE PROVED THAT OBAMA IS NOT ENTITLED TO BE PRESIDENT OF THE USA AND THAT HE COMMITTED SEVERAL FRAUDULENT ACTS THAT PROBABLY COULD BE SANCTIONNED BY A JAIL SENTENCE!!!
    —Finally, Obama is a former lawyer and therefore OBAMA CONSCIOUSLY, INTENTIONALLY COMPLETELY DECEIVED THE ENTIRE AMERICAN PEOPLE BY RUNNING FOR THE PRESIDENCY OF THE USA WHEN HE KNEW PERFECTLY WELL THAT HE WAS NOT ENTITLED TO DO SO SIMPLY BECAUSE HE KNEW VERY WELL THAT HE WAS NOT A NATURAL BORN CITIZEN, AS THE CONSTITUTION OF THE USA REQUIRES ONLY ON THE PRESIDENT OF THE USA!!!!
    —THIS HUGE DECEPTION BY OBAMA IS MORE THAN A FRAUDULENT ACT, IT IS WORSE THAN ANYTHING IMAGINABLE BECAUSE:
    1) IT RELATES TO THE HIGHEST POSITION IN THE LAND, THE PRESIDENCY OF THE USA, THAT OBAMA HAS FRAUDULENTLY OBTAINED;
    2) IT RELATES TO THE CONSTITUTION OF THE USA BEING TRAMPLED UPON FRAUDULENTLY AND ILLEGALLY BY OBAMA;
    3) IT RELATES TO THE FACT THAT OBAMA INTENTIONALLY DECEIVED AND MISLED THE ENTIRE AMERICAN PEOPLE!!!
    ANY PERSON GUILTY OF SUCH SERIOUS FRAUD SHOULD AT LEAST GET A JAIL SENTENCE, NO MATTER THAT OBAMA HAS FRAUDULENTLY HELD THE POSITION OF PRESIDENT OF THE USA FOR A PERIOD OF TIME!!!

    DEFINITION OF A “NATURAL BORN CITIZEN”:
    If you really want to have an expert legal explanation on what a “natural born citizen” truly is according to the Constitution of the USA and why legally speaking it is this way, then I suggest that you read at least a few articles on Attorney Mario Apuzzo’s web site “Natural Born Citizen – A Place to Ask Questions and Get the Right Answers” at http://puzo1.blogspot.com/
    IN PARTICULAR, MAKE SURE YOU READ:
    —“The Natural Born Citizen Clause of Our U.S. Constitution Requires that Both of the Child’s Parents Be U.S. Citizens At the Time of Birth” at http://puzo1.blogspot.com/2009/09/natural-born-citizen-clause-requires.html

    YES YOU CAN!!! YOU, THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, YOU CAN FIGHT FOR THE TRUTH!!!
    CONCRETELY, WHAT CAN YOU DO IN YOUR STATE TO GET JUSTICE AND TO PROTECT THE CONSTITUTION OF THE USA?
    1) Contact your governor, your senator, your elected representatives, the attorney general and any appropriate officials and ask them to put in place a legal process to ensure that Obama is on the ballot of your state ONLY IF OBAMA HAS PROVIDED ALL THE DOCUMENTS THAT WERE ASKED BY THE PLAINTIFFS IN THE GEORGIA CASE AND THAT OBAMA HAS REFUSED TO PROVIDE.
    More, PLAN TO ASK FULL DISCOVERY ON OBAMA’S LONG FORM BIRTH CERTIFICATE IN HAWAII AND ON OBAMA’S FRAUDULENT SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER THAT HE USES!!!
    2) In case your state would not have appropriate laws to do what is indicated in point 1) just above, ask the appropriate officials in your state to create a law that will grant your state the same rights than the state of Georgia has to fully check a candidate BEFORE he is put on the ballot for any elections, in particular for the coming election for the position of President of the USA.
    To conclude:
    —IF THE STATE OF GEORGIA HAS A LAW TO FULLY CHECK CANDIDATES’ ELIGIBILITY FOR THE POSITION BEFORE THEY ARE PUT ON THE BALLOT FOR VARIOUS ELECTIONS, SO CAN YOUR STATE TOO!!!
    —YOUR ACTIONS LOCALLY IN YOUR STATE WILL ENSURE THAT THE CONSTITUTION OF THE USA IS FULLY RESPECTED AND THAT NO ONE IS ABOVE THE LAW!!!
    —OBAMA SHOWED US THAT HE THINKS THAT HE IS ABOVE THE LAW, AS HE DEMONSTRATED BY NOT SHOWING UP IN COURT IN GEORGIA DESPITE BEING EXPRESSLY ASKED BY THE JUDGE TO BE PRESENT AND TO BRING DOCUMENTS THAT SURELY WOULD HAVE PROVED HIS LACK OF ELIGIBILITY TO BE ON THE BALLOT TO BE PRESIDENT OF THE USA, NOT TO MENTION THE HUGE DECEPTION AND LIES THAT OBAMA PERPETRATED AGAINST THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.
    THEREFORE, YOU THE AMERICAN PEOPLE HAS A LEGAL AND MORAL DUTY TO MAKE SURE THAT THE CONSTITUTION OF THE USA IS RESPECTED FULLY AND APPLIED FULLY TO ALL AMERICAN CITIZENS, ESPECIALLY TO OBAMA WHO BELIEVES THAT HE IS ABOVE THE LAW AS HE HAS RECENTLY DEMONSTRATED IN GEORGIA!!!

  9. Craig, re “That is why I left it as a question. We don’t really know 100% do we? There is enough murk it’s hard to see through. For that reason, we need to see all the documents.”

    Actually, there is no question. We DO know 100%. It is not murky at all, IF you know and comprehend the facts; which, you yourself provide a link to. Please go back and thoroughly read the information at your link. All the questions are answered there.

    However, I would be very interested in knowing what “documents” you are referring to that need to be seen.

    There are plenty of legitimate reasons to not vote for Romney; but, lack of eligibility is NOT one of them.

    • Okay Jesse…

      Gaskell was living in the TERRITORY of Utah before he ran to Mexico to avoid US laws. When Utah became a state, those living there were NOT automatically considered US citizens. They had to apply for it.
      Did Gaskell, while living in Mexico apply for US citizenship? If so…show the documents.
      When Gaskell returned to the US and after the Mexican civil war ended…Mexico paid reparations to those who fled the war to the tune of $2.00 for every $100.00 in lost property. Gaskell got enough money from the Mexican government to buy a house.
      Did Mexico pay Mecican citizens and NON citizens alike? If so…sho the documents.
      By some accounts, George Romney was to have signed documents of repatriation at the age of 21 in 1924.
      WAS he actually required to sign those documents? If so, DID he? Show those documents.

      Yep…clear as mud.

  10. I have ALWAYS been wary of Romney – he just doesn’t look out of his eyes in an honest way. He has the ‘Ken-Doll’ syndrome – good looking so everybody thinks that his good-looks equals ‘goodness & intelligience’. NOPE…he is a stuttering flip-flopper. He is more than likely NOT eligible to be elected to be POTUS.
    Rubio, if elected to VP, would be just a pawn in the larger picture of allowing further deterioration of our Constitution by outside forces (Soros) in that it would go against the law about being a ‘natural-born citizen’ clause in our still-great Constitution.
    In regards to the 14th, it was ratified AFTER the ORIGINAL Article 1, Section 2, of the CONSTITUTION, therefore it is NOT applicable. NOTHING forebears our original Constitution! An apple and an orange are being compared.
    Newt is not perfect, but he DOES know Washington,DC and he DID balance the Budget 4 yrs running and he actually ACCOMPLISHED his GOALS in Congress – against HUGE odds – let him do it again! He was ‘punished’ for bucking the system then – but now WE NEED HIM to buck THIS heinous system!! He has the intelligence, the drive, and the ABILITY to bring us back from the brink of “extinction” ! Support Newt – he IS “THE ONE”!

  11. I think according to the Constitution it doesn’t matter where Romney or Rubio’s parents lived or were born, only where THEY were born. As long as Mitt and Marco were born in the United States they are citizens and eligible. Where am I wrong?

    Section 1 of the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution provides 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.”
    In the case of United States v. Wong Kim Ark, 169 U.S. 649 (1898), the Supreme Court ruled that a person becomes a citizen of the United States at the time of birth, by virtue of the first clause of the 14th Amendment, if that person:
    Is born in the United States
    Has parents that are subjects of a foreign power, but not in any diplomatic or official capacity of that foreign power
    Has parents that have permanent domicile and residence in the United States
    Has parents that are in the United States for business

    • Lisa…The constitution clearly states one must be a “Natural Born Citizen” to serve as President. You can find that in Article I Section 2. The 14th amendment pertains only to “Citizens” but NOT “Natural Born Citizens.”

      Perhaps this article will help define the difference.

  12. I am convinced my country is a Complete mess, with the law makers avoiding the law or ignoring the law, passing laws that exclude the lawmakers but apply to the citizens of the land. I feel helpless in a country being run by law breakers and there is noting the electorate can do in order to hold the law breakers accountable.
    Thank you craig for your courage and knowledge I applaud your service I wish our leaders served also.

  13. AS per Romney’s family.. I like the man . I like his family..Friends of mine and my family, but my allegiance runs not to a man, but to truth, liberty and the rule of law. ( lex rex ,) Constitutional representation… I have examined the Romney eligibility , and though Mitt Romeny is native born, George ( father ) was born in Mexico.. to a father and mother who were married in Mexico.. and Gaskell born in the territory of Utah when it was not a state ( United States of America ) to a father who later relinquished his citizenship ( Miles Romney ), in effect , to avoid the rule of law of the United States of America, ( re polygamy ) ( and to be gone longer than 5 years is pretty much established as giving up citizenship.). Miles lived and died in Mexico.. and his descendants still live there.. Mexican Constitution basically indicates that any children born in Mexico are citizens , and that any children born on any other soil to citizen of Mexico is still a citizen of Mexico.. so that would make Mitt eligible or citizen of Mexico.. as son of Mexican citizen.. This is why the issue is moot now. No one wants to look at it..

  14. Think for a minute if AN enemy ? ( BANKING INTERESTS ? WITH U. N TAKEOVE INTERESTS ? )wants to destroy a country it WOULD ATTEMPT TO destroy it’s rule of law and it’s money and guns, and food… ( DEBT AND BONDAGE , DEPENDENCY ?) and WOULD ? support only canidates that have questionable – reasonable doubt , citizenship.. FOR CHAOS , and has anyone seen the naturalization papers of Ron Pauls family ? DO WE KNOW FOR SURE…. ? i AM IN SALT LAKE AND WILL ATTMPTING TO FIND NATURALIZATION PAPERS FOR RON PAUL.. BUT SO FAR HAVE SEEN ONLY A CENSUS RECORD INDICATING AN APPLICATION FOR CITIZENSHIP.. THAT IS , IN AND OF ITSELF NOT NATURALIZATION PAPER…

  15. Craig, you have written an excellent work. I agree with everything you say EXCEPT the parts about Romney possibly being ineligible for the presidency; and, I say that as one who has NEVER been a supporter of his for ANY elected office. Quite the contrary, out of the candidates who are still in this race, Santorum is the only logical choice because he is most conservative. BOTH Romney and Gingrich are liberal in their ideology and policies. Ron Paul is not even a worthy consideration…

    Yet, despite my own feelings about who is the best choice, I find myself in the strange position of defending Romney’s eligibility and agreeing with you about Santorum’s potential lack of same. The issues you have pointed out about him needing to verify his parents’ naturalization are soundly based. I would even agree that if Santorum does not verify his eligibility, I cannot vote for him in the general election.

    On the other hand, all that is necessary to resolve the questions about Romney’s eligibility is to read and comprehend ALL the evidence gathered at your “Link to Mitt’s Murky Past.” That evidence points conclusively to the fact that Mitt Romney IS eligible.

    In short, George Romney was a U.S. citizen but not a natural born citizen. Therefore, he was eligible to be Governor of Michigan but not eligible to become President. However, due to the fact that he (and his wife) was a U.S. citizen, he was therefore able to bestow the status of being a natural born citizen to his son, Mitt; regardless of where he (George) was born.

    The claims that George was not a U.S. citizen all depend on George’s parents relinquishing their U.S. citizenship; but, as pointed out by your very own source, there is absolutely NO evidence of that ever occurring. Therefore, there is nothing Romney has to prove. The onus is on those who claim there is a problem to show proof that George’s parents’ did in fact give up their citizenship.

    That is because it is impossible to prove a negative; the negative in this case being that George’s parents did NOT give up their U.S. citizenship. Such NON-action required NO documentation; therefore, there is no documentation available to offer as proof. But, if they had given up their citizenship, that WOULD have required either a written or oral statement to that affect. To prove their claims, those saying George was not an American citizen have the burden of proof that such a written or oral statement ever existed.

    Since no such proof has ever been offered, it must be assumed as a matter of law that there IS no such proof. That is how a court of law is REQUIRED look at and so must we.

    • Well, Jesse,

      That is why I left it as a question. We don’t really know 100% do we? There is enough murk it’s hard to see through. For that reason, we need to see all the documents. The biggest question surrounds the fact that those living in the utah territory were not considered US citizens when Utah became a state. As Gaskell LEFT Utah territory when it was still a territory, he would not have been a citizen. Or WOULD he? You see the problem. Provide the documents so we know.

      I just don’t feel we can afford to “believe” he was a citizen…we must KNOW he was or we are traveling down the same road as liberals did in 2008.

      Craig

  16. i’d like to add something here that may or may not have any relevance… it is in reference to the upcoming “trump” endorsement… at first he supposedly was going to endorse gingrich; and now everyone says he’s going to endorse romney… IF he endorses romney, it verifies something i felt way back last year when he brought up the idea of running in the primaries, himself; while at the same time, asking for obama to release his birth certificate… and then, lo and behold, obama releases the fraudulent long form birth certificate, and trump was OK w/ it; & then took credit for forcing obama to release the birth certificate (i thought it was all a hoax to try to deflect attention from jerome corsi’s book, “where’s the birth certificate” coming out).

    then, trump went away… until he started raising the idea of running 3rd party… NOW he’s going to endorse somebody? IF he endorses romney, then i think that george soros is in the mix somewhere… i think that trump has been fine & dandy w/ obama… and, subsequently, he’s also fine and dandy w/ romney…

    now, if trump doesn’t endorse romney, then i’m wrong… i sure hope so!!!

  17. Chicago CraigsList Politics section is Censoring also.

    They “ghost” posts that disagree or disprove Democratic policies.

    If you want truth and accuracy you can not go there for it.

    Furthermore they disallow you to educate anyone by posting the truth.

  18. i used to like rubio and was a supporter of this… that is, until his actions this past week… i thought he was vying for the VP spot (and that’s why he was hinting at his support for romney)… he should know he’s ineligible… and, if not, we need to make it very clear. any tea party member that says they don’t care about the eligibility issue if it means rubio can’t run, was never concerned about it w/ obama either… and the reason it is so important re obama is that he has NO allegiance to the u.s. (which i believe is the reason our founding fathers put it in the constitution); and it is ever apparent in his actions, that are destroying our country…

    i never heard of anything about rick santorum’s father… i’d like to hear more about that one… and, craig, i hope u do some more digging on romney… this is getting interesting; but it’s too late to keep him off the ballot in GA; we don’t have enough information… but, it now sure explains why everybody in congress kept their mouth’s shut when “we the people” were contacting them about obama’s birth certificate being a fraud…

  19. Thank you, thank you, thank you, for your courage and willingness to expose this constitutional fiasco that’s being foisted on us by both the media and the Republican Party. I’ve had Tea Party members say they don’t care about the eligibility issue if it means Rubio can’t run because “they really like him”. If the Tea Party won’t defend our Constitution who will? I know it’s asking a lot, but can you give us some clear information on what can be done to force our candidates to prove their eligibility? How can we challenge that now, before it’s too late?

  20. Excellent perspective as usual Craig! Yes all the candidates need FULLY VETTED since the usurper was not and now look at where our great country is, and worse, he has proven his allegance is NOT to our country and thus taking us down this path of destruction BY DESIGN, that is the scary part! Fool us once, shame on them, fool us twice, SHAME on US!

  21. In an explosive interview by Dr. Laurie Roth on her syndicated West Coast radio show on August 7th with Douglas Hagmann — a respected journalist, director of the Northeast Intelligence Network, and longtime private investigator, and Judi McLeod, a prolific journalist and the managing editor of Canada Free Press — the reason for the media blackout about the birth-certificate issue was nothing less than organized Mafia-like dire threats to members of the media issued not only from the heads of major TV and radio stations but also from Federal Communication Commission officials!

    According to Hagmann and McLeod, who conducted a nine-month investigation and documented their findings scrupulously, after Obama was elected but before he was inaugurated:

    A major TV talk-show host reported that he was ordered not to raise the birth certificate issue or risk losing his job.

    FCC officials threatened to yank broadcasting licenses, break up conglomerates, and make the enactment of the Fairness Doctrine “look mild” in comparison to other consequences.
