CBS 'Sunday Morning' News Segment: "So What If Barack Obama Is Not A Natural Born Citizen."
Birther Report

Posted on 01/28/2013 8:16:13 AM PST by Cold Case Posse Supporter

I've got a simple idea: Let's give up on the Constitution.

I know, it sounds radical, but it's really not. Constitutional disobedience is as American as apple pie.

For example, most of our greatest Presidents -- Jefferson, Lincoln, Wilson, and both Roosevelts -- had doubts about the Constitution, and many of them disobeyed it when it got in their way.

To be clear, I don't think we should give up on everything in the Constitution. The Constitution has many important and inspiring provisions, but we should obey these because they are important and inspiring, not because a bunch of people who are now long-dead favored them two centuries ago.

Unfortunately, the Constitution also contains some provisions that are not so inspiring. For example, one allows a presidential candidate who is rejected by a majority of the American people to assume office. Suppose that Barack Obama really wasn't a natural-born citizen. So what?


TOPICS: Constitution/Conservatism; Crime/Corruption; Government; News/Current Events
KEYWORDS: anticonstitution; constitution; corruption; naturalborncitizen; obama
This is appalling what I heard this morning from a segment on CBS News 'Sunday Morning'. It was truly Marxist. It was like it was ghost written by Barack Obama himself. What was spewed was totally un-American. The reason the framers wanted a true natural born Citizen inserted into Article 2 Section 1, the presidential clause, was for a purpose...........Loyalty. It was to assure that a future president would be born with sole allegiance to the United States. It was to prevent him from having split allegiances with other foreign governments in case said person was born to foreign subjects that could disrupt his singular loyalty to America. After all, the framers lived in a time when America just won a war for their independence. It's really common sense and very logical why they wanted a future president that was a true American born to two U.S. citizen parents that would guarantee sole allegiance to the United States at birth. The 'Office Of The Presidency' is the only office in American government that calls for a special specific kind of citizenship to hold that one patriotic position. A simple 'born Citizen' on U.S. soil is not enough. For people to disregard the framers original intent as well as the Constitution in today's times, and to disregard that a president not be a natural born Citizen is putting this country and its national security in serious jeopardy......and it already is due to this type of Marxist mentality.

If I didn’t know CBS was a responsible and respected news outlet I’d suspect they were taunting us.

The constitution has an amendment provision. If the profession thinks we are better off without certain provisions of the document then he is welcome to try and convince enough to amend it.

Well its not like they don’t all know the guy is ineligible. I’m sure every one of our illustrious 535 elected legislators and 9 Supreme Court Justices also know it.

Imagine that. For some reason the founding fathers didn't cotten to the idea of mob rule.

I'm seeing a full court press by the Regime and their media lackies in the last few weeks denigrating and downplaying the US Constitution.

We are being setup for something or many things.

Mornon probably thinks that the 3/5ths thing should have been left out so that the south would have counted each slave as a citizen thus allowing the south to OWN the house of representin’ ... It would have prevented the civil war you know and we probably would have still have slavery....

Gee, that would have been swell cause SEE B.S. said so.

SUNDAY MORNING is an excellent show which I usually watch with my wife, and we record it for later viewing which is usually the way we see it. Yesterday’s show is on our DVR list, but I haven’t seen it yet. I will now. You didn’t give
much info on who or what was said specifically, but I never noticed that show to have ANY political bias, or deal with those subjects at all.

Yeah, but that amendment process is part of the “fixed” set of rules that the leftist elite don’t want to abide by in the first place,

so they reject that out of hand.

Much better if they are simply empowered to make their arbitrary decisions based on their superior intellectual and moral standing.

A view on that from Louis Michael Seidman, Professor of Constitutional Law at Georgetown University

It's not surprising that a law professor from an elitist establishment university is anti-American. These elitists hold a view that is more popular and mainstream with every passing election. I'm sure he believes the Constitution is impeding Obama's needed "progress".

The very facts of BHO's presidency are themselves the greatest argument in favor of requiring loyalty as a condition of presidential candidacy. But now what? If we as a nation are willing to overlook one inconvenient part of the Constitution, then why isn't it acceptable to overlook other unpopular provisions? Their boldness to make such a treasonous appeal is bolstered by the current gun debate.

Our weak Republican leaders are grooming a non-NBC candidate of their own for the office -- neither of his parents were citizens at the time of his birth. Now he's advancing "immigration reform". You know who he is.

In Texas you would need to convince a large part of the electorate to relocate to another region. Austin, Houston, and Dallas are loaded with Obama's 47% ers.

Take away their “programs” (in the case of sheeperals)
and their ability to meddle/control other people’s lives (in the case of the elitists)

and they’ll voluntarily emigrate.

That is so when Obama uses an Executive Order to outlaw guns, they can claim the Constitution is all wrong and washed up and Obama is right because he cares.

The only thing that gives the government any legitimate athority is the constitution. Without the constitution, and the whole constitution then there isn’t a legitimate government and all orders, regulations, taxes, and laws can be legally ignored. Sure there would be ramifications as I’m sure the usurpers wouldn’t willingly give up power, but let it be said here and now, that a large percentage of Americans would see them as the usurpers they are and act accordingly.

Where is the sarcasm tag? you posted this as truth? Never noticed a political bias on Sunday Morning?
Brain dead much, or just ignorant?
They are constantly getting in their negative punches against the conservative cause. If you have not noticed it before, maybe the sound was off and you just look at the pretty pictures.......
Watch the episode that was broadcast Sunday, the truth comes out.

You don't see any political bias (both sides) in the pieces by Nancy Giles or Ben Stein??? Hmmm...

My comment on the thread created just after the show was on the air yesterday:

My wife and I were watching this commentary. It was one of those rare times that my wife will vocally respond to a TV report of any kind and we were both in total agreement that the guy was a flippin’ moron. On that basis, I’d say he is blissfully unaware of how the Consitution works or its relationship on his ability to spew such tripe.

Given his comments on the founders and writers of the Constitution and not being tied to what these men wrote, I’d say he’s cemented his moron status for all time. I don’t see anybody of equivalent wisdom on the scene today that would compare to the Founders.

The “natural born Citizen” clause was put there for national security and preservation of the republic, purposes. Didn’t make sense then, nor now, to have a Chief Executive Officer (President) and Commander in Chief of the armed forces who was born with foreign citizenship and thus foreign allegiance owed.

Well there are some laws I don't like and some that I do ...maybe picking and choosing which ones to use on a personal basis would "inspire" the non productive masses. The same could be said for the Ten Commandments, I suppose.

Colin Powell last Sunday talking to ABC’s Dianne Sawyer went on the offensive against birthers and the GOP leadership for not denouncing them. Why? Why come out of the woodworks and go after birthers at this point in time? Obama has been reelected and the media has been silent on the eligibility subject for a pretty good while. There was a reason he did this. He wants to shut down all dialogue on the eligibility topic for deeper purposes. They are nervous. Lead Investigator Mike Zullo, who conducted the investigation into Obama’s birth certificate and found it to be fraudulent along with his Selective Service Registration Pica U.S. postal date stamp, confirms in this interview yesterday. He believes his phone is being tapped by the NSA. Listen at 12:08 in the video.

I just finally saw it a minute ago, wished I’d known it was at the very end, had to watch all the rest of it before the Prof was finally on.
I had forgotten about Nancy Giles, but the name is familiar, so I know I’ve seen her on.Yes, she is an idiot.
The Professor was appalling, sounding for all the world like the classic shaggy grey academic mimicking all the “irrelevant dead white man” cliches of the radical Left.
The “theme” of the week, by the way, seems to be
the big “SO WHAT???” What difference does it make?”
theme we heard from Hillary Clinton a few days ago at the hearing on Benghazi, as she threw up her hands in frustration. The same question was put forth by this
Prof, “what difference does trashing the Constitution make???” He cites examples of its being necessary before , and implies that with Obama it’s necessary again, and skirts all specifics of ANY circumventing of the Constitution THEN
AND NOW. Convenient, but it’s a subtle way of creating approval for Obama by associating him with the kind of “dead white men” that meet HIS approval.
CBS should get emails demanding equal time for a real response, point by point to this Geo-town professor, maybe an academic , if they can find one.
Let’s do it.

I have a better idea. Let’s keep the constitution and get rid of CBS and the rest of the socialist democratic frauds on the left. The left’s believe that THE FOREIGNERS birth certificate was proof of eligibility is no different than their believe in AGW climate change SCAM.

Out of the blue Colin Powell blurted out some nonsense about birthers being racist, now this on CBS.

Something in the wind?

“So I’m not eligible, so what? What does it matter at this point? You support democracy don’t you? The people have spoken”

Mob rule is supplanting the rule of law.

The movement has been upon us for more years than most humans could possibly comprehend from the Banking Elites to take over the world in their Idea of a "New World Order"; and in order to do so , they must destroy the U.S. Constitution and the "Idea Of Sovereignty" in the minds of the majority of U.S. citizens. This latest CBS Video/Rant is just the latest attempt by the powers that be, to be brazen and put/keep the idea into the minds of the mindless people who are unemployed + watching CBS. Get rid of the Idea Of Sovereignty from the people + We Are Done as a country. (Hell, look at that Agenda 21 already creeping into certain communities.... )

The REAL question should have been: “What difference does it make?,” as in the illustrious words of Hillary Clinton.

I HOPE that the writer was TRYING to get a response, to start making the case that Obama/Soetoro/Sutoro/Soebarkah/Bounel is NOT elligible, nor are Rubio, Jindal, Santorum, McCain, and Ted Cruz-—all of whom I like, except for McCain.
