Actually they are not the same thing. However, if her intent when she made the statement to the police was to receive financial gain, they could eventually charge her with fraud if she were to receive donations, otherwise she might just be charged with making a false statement. If she were to make that statement to her insurance company, it's definitely fraud.

Uh, well our jurisprudence is based on English Common Law.

Despite the rhetoric from the Vattelities there is a reason why our legal system is referred to as Anglo-American jurisprudence instead of Roman-American jurisprudence or Franco-American jurisprudence. Since the founding of our nation, courts have acknowledged our common law heritage that is rooted in the English common law.

Justice Thomas in his concurring opinion in McDonald v. City of Chicago 561 U.S.____(2010) observed:”After declaring their independence, the newly formed States replaced their colonial charters with constitutions and state bills of rights, almost all of which guaranteed the same fundamental rights that the former colonists previously had claimed by virtue of their English heritage....... Several years later, the Founders amended the Constitution to expressly protect many of the same fundamental rights against interference by the Federal Government. Consistent with their English heritage, the founding generation generally did not consider many of the rights identified in these amendments as new entitlements, but as inalienable rights of all men, given legal effect by their codification in the Constitution's text.“

Furthermore, courts have acknowledged that the common law was a barrier to arbitrary power of the government.”Those who emigrated to this country from England brought with them this great privilege "as their birthright and inheritance, as a part of that admirable common law which had fenced around and interposed barriers on every side against the approaches of arbitrary power." Thompson v. Utah, 170 US 343, 349-350 (1898) quoting 2 Story's Const.§ 1779

Moreover,“When it is said that we have in this country adopted the common law of England, it is not meant that we have adopted any mere formal rules, or any written code, or the mere verbiage in which the common law is expressed. It is aptly termed the unwritten law of England; and we have adopted it as a constantly improving science, rather than as an art; as a system of legal logic, rather than as a code of rules. In short, in adopting the common law, we have adopted its fundamental principles and modes of reasoning, and the substance of its rules as illustrated by the reasons on which they are based, rather than by the mere words in which they are expressed.' Fung Dai Kim Ah Leong v. Lau Ah Leong, 27 F. 2d 582, 584 (9th Cir. 1928 )(internal citation omitted)

The interpretation of the Constitution of the United States is necessarily influenced by the fact that its provisions are framed in the language of the English common law, and are to be read in the light of its history." Smith v. Alabama, 124 U. S. 465, 478 (1888).

MISSING:$400 PURSE HOLDING $800 CASH, PLUS FOOD STAMP CARDS
By: John Hayward
A woman said she noticed her purse missing from her car just before 5 P.M. Sunday. The car was parked at her residence on Hornet Drive. The woman said the car had been locked, and the purse was in the back seat.
The purse was valued at $400, her wallet was valued at $200, and she said there was $800 cash in the purse, according to the police report. Also missing were the woman’s food stamp cards.

That Rogue would reproduce such an item without first verifying its authenticity is typical of a hate story he just can't turn down.

Subpoena Granted for Obama’s Occidental College Records 4 December 2012

There has been much controversy surrounding President Barack Obama’s citizenship; and speculation that his Occidental College transcripts will provide proof of foreign citizenship, based on the application and receipt of a ‘non-US citizen’ scholarship to study in the U.S.

Dr. Orly Taitz, Esquire has secured a subpoena, from the Superior Court of the District of Columbia, to obtain the following from the Records Custodian at Occidental College:

1) All records related to Barack Hussein Obama, II, also known as Barack Hussein Obama, including, without limitation, application for admission and transcripts.

2) All records related to Barry Soetoro including, without limitation, application for admission and transcripts.

If proof of foreign citizenship is obtained somehow through these documents, then Barack Obama doesn’t meet the basic qualifications for the presidency.

“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.”

Whether or not this is subpoena is upheld remains to be seen, but the stated deadline for the delivery of the documents to Dr. Ortiz’s office is December 14, 2012 at 11:00 a.m.

Under strict construction, beloved of Conservatives, unless the Constitution specifically states something, it has no opinion on the matter. And the US Constitution does not bar the US-born children of foreigners from becoming president. It uses the term "Natural Born," which historical research shows was used at the time the Constitution was written to refer to the PLACE OF BIRTH, not to the parents.

That is enough.

However, there is more. For the writers of the US Constitution to be referring to parents in the Natural Born Citizen clause would have meant that they believed that the US-born children of foreigners were not equal to the US-born children of US citizens. Yet they had written in the Declaration of Independence: "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal..."

To be sure, the writers of the US Constitution did not believe that Indians and slaves were equal to other Americans, but they showed that in many ways. There is no reason to believe that they thought that the US-born children of foreigners were not equal to the US-born children of US citizens UNLESS THEY TOLD US, and they didn't.

Virtually all of English common law was adopted in America. In fact, one of your heroes, John Jay, wrote the common law into the first Constitution of the State of New York. That Constitution, written in 1777, said that the common law will be the law of the State of New York unless and until specifically changed by New York State legislation.

Here are sources to turn to for further research on the meaning of Natural Born Citizen:

<quoted text>No one has produced an original birth certificate. If President Barack Hussein Obama has one,he should let the rest of the world see it.
Actually in 2008 Lucas Smith smuggled out a notarized copy of BHO's original BC from Kenya. Obama was indeed born 100% Brit in kenya before his Indonesian adoption. The Hawaiian Birth Certificate is forged and he is using a stolen SSN. The Freemasons made this monster and they will have to destroy it or at least make an attempt.
There were some extremely prominent men there that day, including a Scandinavian King, two former presidents of the United States, an internationally prominent evangelist, two other internationally prominent clergymen, and a very high official of the federal government, the one who actually presented me with the certificate of the 33rd Degree. Some made only brief appearances; others stayed much longer. However, they didn't do much mixing or socializing with us, except for those whom they already knew. Even though these celebrities weren't extremely "brotherly," it was still quite an experience for me just to be associated with them. It was easily the largest gathering of such prominent and influential men of which I have ever been a part.
The third day there was a banquet to celebrate our becoming "Grand Inspectors General. 33rd Degree." The banquet was a little anticlimactic, at least for me, and I was anxious to get it over with so I could return home. It was good to be a 33rd at last.

Almost every forthnight that I've been on this thread, you or one of the birthers trimphantly herald one of Orly Taitz's coming triumphs in her quest to down Obama. And each time, well, 175 times and counting, it's ended in utter failure, with Taitz having to eat crow, particularly after having lost to an empty chair. Every announcement of a sure victory has turned to vinegar. Will this one suffer the same fate? You betcha. Still, Rogue, your Novemeber 6 predictions, I have to confess, topped them all, don't you agree?
Occidental college transcripts? Since when is the public, or anyone, allowed to see college transcripts? I'd love to see someone try to see mine.

Would you like to buy a bridge? I have a lovely bridge for sale, cheap. And it is a historic bridge, the one and only Brooklyn Bridge, and I own it and can offer it to you, and you alone, for a tiny fraction of its true value.

Regarding the alleged "Subpoena." Dr Conspiracy reports this:

"ObamaReleaseYourRecords reports that Montgomery Blair Sibley has subpoenaed “all records” for Barack Hussein Obama, II and Barry Soetoro held by Occidental College, in the lawsuit Sibley v. Alexander, and has referenced a copy of the subpoena from the Superior Court of the District of Columbia. Alexander is a presidential elector from the District, and I wrote about this case last month.

Rule 45 of the District of Columbia Superior Court Civil Procedure covers subpoenas. It should be noted that the court issues these subpoenas blank except for the signature, so there is no “endorsement” by the Court for the validity or enforceability of the subpoena implied by the clerk’s signature. Under the rules, special dispensation of the Court is required to serve a subpoena outside the District or more than 25 miles from the District. There is no indication that such leave was granted in this case."

And, on the chance that you did not know, Occidental College is considerably more than 25 miles from the District of Columbia.

One simple paragraph is all it takes.
After the Revolution, States retained only those portions of common law that were applicable to their local circumstances. The practice of England at the time was every person born within the realm of the King was a natural born subject by virtue of birth alone. In the United States, such a rule was not strictly followed as children born to black slaves, transient aliens, or Indians, followed the condition of their father.
Now, quit acting stupid! Done.
"It thus clearly appears that, by the law of England for the last three centuries, beginning before the settlement of this country and continuing to the present day, aliens, while residing in the dominions possessed by the Crown of England, were within the allegiance, the obedience, the faith or loyalty, the protection, the power, the jurisdiction of the English Sovereign, and therefore every child born in England of alien parents was a natural-born subject unless the child of an ambassador or other diplomatic agent of a foreign State or of an alien enemy in hostile occupation of the place where the child was born.

III. The same rule was in force in all the English Colonies upon this continent down to the time of the Declaration of Independence, and in the United States afterwards, and continued to prevail under the Constitution as originally established."---the ruling in the Wong Kim Ark case (which btw was AFTER Minor v. Happersett).

“Under the longstanding English common-law principle of jus soli, persons born within the territory of the sovereign (other than children of enemy aliens or foreign diplomats) are citizens from birth. Thus, those persons born within the United States are "natural born citizens" and eligible to be President. Much less certain, however, is whether children born abroad of United States citizens are "natural born citizens" eligible to serve as President ..."---- Edwin Meese, et al, THE HERITAGE GUIDE TO THE CONSTITUTION (2005)[Edwin Meese was Ronald Reagan’s attorney general, and the Heritage Foundation is a well-known Conservative organization.]
