Again, the opinion, cited by birfoon web sites, was written by Atty. Gen. George Williams in response to a hypothetical question put to him by President Grant. Grant asked how it might be accomplished. If you are interested in Williams' reply you might read it.
BTW, regaining citizenship is not "retaining some of the privileges" of citizenship. UR on the wrong page. After the alien, formerly a citizen, renounces, he is not precluded from applying for naturalizarion . Thus a born citizen cannot regain natural born status. In that respect renunciation is truly irrevocable and irreversible.
Thus a born citizen cannot regain natural born status.

All persons born a citizen in this country have always been natural born citizens. All persons born a citizen a country have always been natural born citizens of their country. That is true for common law and international law. No one born a citizen in this country has ever been held a citizen but not natural born save for those who may have been naturalized after previous renunciation. You do not know of what you speak.

Cadet quits, cites overt religion at West Point
By By MICHAEL HILL | Associated Press –

ALBANY, N.Y.(AP)— A cadet quitting West Point less than six months before graduation says he could no longer be part of a culture that promotes prayers and religious activities and disrespects nonreligious cadets.
Blake Page announced his decision to quit the U.S. Military Academy this week in a much-discussed online post that echoed the sentiments of soldiers and airmen at other military installations. The 24-year-old told The Associated Press that a determination this semester that he could not become an officer because of clinical depression played a role in his public protest against what he calls the unconstitutional prevalence of religion in the military.
"I've been trying since I found that out: What can I do? What can I possibly do to initiate the change that I want to see and so many other people want to see?" Page said. "I realized that this is one way I can make that change happen."

Oh course, what do we expect, the Libtads will blame today's unemployment numbers on ...... Hurricane Sandy!
But where did Reuters get it's numbers from. The report will not be released until 8:30 a.m. and it is suppose to be secret until then.

Superstorm Sandy to dampen U.S. payrolls
By Lucia Mutikani | Reuters – 6 hrs ago

WASHINGTON (Reuters)- Superstorm Sandy likely put a dent in U.S. employment growth in November, temporarily interrupting a recently established trend of modestly rising payrolls.
Nonfarm employment is forecast to have increased by a paltry 93,000 jobs last month after advancing by 171,000 in October, according to a Reuters survey of economists. The unemployment rate is seen holding steady at 7.9 percent.

Has Obama been president for the past decade Mr. Liars? These are the companies you and your party support. Apparently Republicans love calling say HP for support and getting someone on the line they can’t understand; though they want everyone here to speak perfect English. Go figure.

Where does it say Obama's administration is responsible for the exodus of low-paying jobs? Where in this USA Today article does it say that? It does mention, yes, that this job outsourcing has been going on for 10 years, of which only 4 are Obama's, correct? And, not unlike your cut-and-paste bosom buddy, American er hmm Pravda Lady, you don't read too well and understand even less, do you? Read the following, it is from the US Today news story that YOU posted, not me :

QUOTE "Once services are offshored, there's little chance they'll come back to the U.S., Dorr says. By contrast, manufacturers have returned some production to the U.S. recently, largely because of a narrowing wage gap between the U.S. and China, rising shipping costs and falling U.S. energy costs — factors that generally haven't affected service jobs.

One exception: call-center jobs. About 500,000 were offshored from 2006 to 2010, according to the Communications Workers of America. Many have returned to the U.S. the last few years because of cultural gaps between representatives and customers that hurt sales, says Hal Sirkin, senior partner of Boston Consulting Group.

Yet CWA spokeswoman Candice Johnson called the jobs that have come back "a drop in the bucket" UNQUOTE

On the night of February 26, 2012, after enduring a prolonged physical attack from Trayvon Martin, screaming for help countless times and receiving no help, and all the while in fear for my life, I shot Trayvon Martin in self-defense. I did not shoot to take his life, I shot to save my own.
The night of the shooting I was taken to the Sanford police station and was read my Miranda rights. Aware I had the right to remain silent, I chose to tell investigators what happened. In the hours and days that followed, I cooperated completely with the authorities, and during that thorough investigation, the consensus among law enforcement was that I should not be charged.
However, in the days and weeks following the shooting a story was promoted that I am a racist and a murderer. These untruths spread through the community, the government, and the nation, amplified by a media frenzy seeking ratings over truth. This was no more apparent than when NBC repeatedly edited the recording of a call I made, intentionally misrepresenting me as a racist. Unfortunately, their plan worked, truth suffered that day, and my family and I have suffered every day since. That is why I am filing a lawsuit against NBC. The details of the complaint can be found on a website created by my legal team: .
What happened that night was a tragedy: a tragedy that NBC exploited, creating an opportunity for profit. I am holding NBC accountable for its actions. If NBC had not spread lies and falsifications about me, this lawsuit would not exist. This lawsuit is a product of NBC's intentional distortion of facts. I do not know, because of my situation, how I will be able to provide for my wife and myself in the future, and so I expect NBC to be held responsible. The unjustified public persecution of me because of NBC's actions is wrong. It shouldn't have happened to me, and it shouldn't happen to anyone.
In the last several months, the prosecutors have released evidence regarding this case, and the evidence speaks for itself regarding my innocence. As this lawsuit moves forward, I hope the existence of this exonerating evidence will be broadcast with at least a fraction of the publicity afforded to the lies and misrepresentations. I deserve that and those who have been misinformed deserve that. However, that will be up to the ethical journalists who will spread the truth without regard or concern for political or social pressure.
First Served ! George Zimmerman Sues NBC – Defamation, Intentional Infliction of Emotional Distress, demand for preservation of evidence, demand for jury trial

Yep, the Libtards forgot what happened to them during the Richard Jewell case.
Libel cases
After his exoneration, Jewell filed a series of lawsuits against the media outlets which he claimed had libeled him, primarily NBC News and The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, and insisted on a formal apology from them. L. Lin Wood was the lead attorney in all of Jewell's Libel cases.

In 2006, Jewell said the lawsuits were not about money, and that the vast majority of the settlements went to lawyers or taxes. He said the lawsuits were about clearing his name.[2]
[edit]Richard Jewell v. Piedmont College
Jewel filed suit against his former employer Piedmont College, Piedmont College President Raymond Cleere and college spokesman Scott Rawles.[9] Jewell's attorneys contended that Cleere called the FBI and spoke to the Atlanta newspapers, providing them with false information on Jewell and his employment there as a security guard. Jewell's lawsuit accused Cleere of describing Jewell as a "badge-wearing zealot" who "would write epic police reports for minor infractions."[1]
Piedmont College settled for an undisclosed amount.[11]
[edit]Richard Jewell v. NBC
Jewell sued NBC News for this statement, made by Tom Brokaw: "The speculation is that the FBI is close to making the case. They probably have enough to arrest him right now, probably enough to prosecute him, but you always want to have enough to convict him as well. There are still some holes in this case". Even though NBC stood by its story, the network agreed to pay Jewell $500,000.[9]
[edit]Richard Jewell v. New York Post
This section does not cite any references or sources.(June 2012)
Although Jewell was considered a hero at first, four days later The Atlanta Journal published stories stating that the FBI was considering Jewell as a lead suspect who fit the profile of a “lone bomber”. Articles then appeared in numerous media outlets, including The New York Post. One New York Post article read,“He was a fat, failed former sheriff's deputy who spent most of his working days as a crossing guard, and yearned to go further”.}
Richard Jewell v. Cox Enterprises (d.b.a. Atlanta Journal-Constitution)
Jewell sued the Atlanta Journal-Constitution newspaper, which stated Jewell was "an individual with a bizarre employment history and aberrant personality". It also said Jewell "fit the profile of a lone bomber." According to Jewell, the paper's headline, which read FBI suspects 'hero' guard may have planted bomb, "pretty much started the whirlwind".[10]
The Atlanta Journal went as far as to compare Richard Jewell's case to that of serial killer Wayne Williams.[12]
The newspaper was the only defendant that did not settle with Jewell. The lawsuit remained pending for several years, after having been considered at one time by the Supreme Court of Georgia, and had become an important part of case law regarding whether journalists could be forced to reveal their sources. The case was dismissed by Judge John R. Mather in December 2007, four months after Jewell's death. The paper claimed this was proof of the accuracy of their coverage.[13]
Although CNN settled with Jewell for an undisclosed monetary amount, CNN maintained its coverage was fair and accurate.[14]

Aftermath [Richard Jewell

In July 1997, U.S. Attorney General Janet Reno, prompted by a reporter's question at her regular weekly news conference, expressed regret over the FBI's leak to the news media that led to the widespread presumption of his guilt, and apologized outright, saying, "I'm very sorry it happened. I think we owe him an apology. I regret the leak."
