Seems to me that this is a question that needs to be answered once and for all before the election . . . dare I say before the convention in Denver.
I’d ask why hasn’t the MSM jumped on this, but we all know getting news from “them” is a waste of time. More and more we are faced with looking to outside sources and non-traditional outlets for the news the MSM has failed to cover.
The case in point is an article from Canada Free Press
A few days ago I asked whether Obama was ineligible to run for the office of President because it has been reported that he holds dual citizenship. This is different. Quoting directly from the article:
Barack Obama is not legally a US natural-born citizen according to the law on the books at the time of his birth; a law that was in effect between December 24, 1952 and November 13, 1986, when the law was changed.
However, the new law did not preempt the former law in the cases of those born between the above listed dates when the old law was in effect.
Therefore, Senator Obama may very well be disqualified as the Democratic candidate in the upcoming Presidential campaign.
Presidential office requires the person elected to be a natural-born United States citizen if the child was not born to two US citizen parents.
US Law very clearly stipulates: “If only one parent was a US citizen at the time of your birth, that parent must have resided in the United States for at least ten years, at least five of which had to be after the age of 16.”
Barack Obama’s father was not a US citizen, and Obama’s mother was only 18 when he was born, which means although she had been a US citizen for 10 years, his mother fails the test for being so for at least 5 years prior to Barack Obama’s birth.
In order for her child to have been a natural-born US citizen, his mother would have had to be 21 at the time of his birth.
In essence, Mrs. Obama was not old enough to qualify her son for automatic US citizenship.
His mother would have needed to have been 16+5 = 21 years old at the time of Barack Obama’s birth for him to have been a natural-born citizen.
Barack Obama instead should have been naturalized, but even then, that would still disqualify him from holding the office of President under current law.
At best, Barack Obama is only a naturalized US citizen.
Seems to me that this is real simple. Either Obama is ineligible or he isn’t.
Now is the MSM going to do its job or will the media end up with egg on its face, once again. Memo to the MSM you blew the Edwards story, big time. DO YOU THINK YOU ARE CAPABLE OF DOING SOME INVESTIGATIVE JOURNALISM AND DIGGING OUT THE TRUTH?
If this story is true, Mr. Obama will have perpetrated one of the biggest con jobs in US election history AND now I can say, “Go Hillary!” If the story isn’t true, then it’s, “Go McCain!” Hey, I’m not voting for the dude, but I think most of us would like to know the truth!
