Obama is just a Kenyan Citizen, he wasn't naturalized into the US, he was too busy smoking dope, "shucking and jiving" and trying to get over on the "man".

Whoop-Dee-Doo! Dale has learned that the Constitution is the supreme law of the land. Two gold stars for little Dale.

And the constitution empowers the government to exercise authority within the United States over both citizens and aliens. Indeed aliens are taxed by the government per its jurisdiction.

Indeed, the power to naturalize aliens is specified in the constitution, who Dufus fantasizes are beyond US jurisdiction (without special permission from a foreign power) though within US borders.

Pathetic.

Crash and burn. Pathetic.
A country has a certain jurisdiction whether it is a constitutional republic, monarchy, or other form of government. A definition of jurisdiction of a government is not dependent on any particular form of government. See for example the definition in Black's Law Dictionary.
jurisdiction, n.(14c) 1. A government's general power to exercise authority over all persons and things within its territory;
The Constitution makes reference to the jurisdiction of the United States.(Does Dufus believe this is a self-reference to the constitution?) Dale seems incapable of defining the jurisdiction of the United States; rather he conflates the terms constitution and jurisdiction. While authority to exercise power flows from the constitution, jurisdiction i.e., the actual power to exercise within the dominion is not a document. The limits of a jurisdiction are not the four corners of a document but a territory over which dominion is exercised.
He seems to believe that the jurisdiction of the United States, the power to exercise authority within its borders is limited to its own citizens. This turns the notion of sovereignty on its head. A country needs no permission from a foreign power to govern within its own borders.
Dale needs to get educated and to grow up.

Sorry Dale, it is the federal government that has jurisdiction, the power to exercise federal authority over all persons and things within it's territories.

The United States of America has territory, not the Constitution. Duh!

And if the United States were to change its form of government to a pure internet-based democracy, it would still be the US government that exercises authority.

It is the branches of government which form the government that possesses jurisdiction.

In a case of Law of the Sea the question may arise "which country has jurisdiction"? For example the US or Canada. Only an idiot would say "da constitooshun!"

Dufus is not working with a full deck.

LMAOI!!! The Constitution is the government, we are a Constitutional Republic, therefore we are governed by the Constitution (under its jurisdiction), like it or not.
Nope. The constitution spells out the form of government. It specifies the metes and bounds. The constitution is no more a government than is a blueprint an automobile or piece of machinery.

If you cannot understand that you are suffering from sever cognitive disorder.

A blueprint specifies the structure of a machine but it is the machine that has the power to act.

Similarly the constitution specifies the form of the government, but it is the government that has the jurisdiction, i.e., the power to act over its territories.

The United States has the power to regulate the behavior of aliens within its territories without any permission from any foreign state. Aliens in the US are under the jurisdiction of the United States. But the constitution, a set of laws, has no power to act.

Thus the "jurisdiction of the United States" refers to the general power of the government to exercise authority over all persons and things within its territory.
The United States HAS jurisdiction which is a certain defined power within its territory. A document and a government's actual power are two very different subjects which the borfoon conflates.
Poor Dufus has not even addressed the essential elements of jurisdiction. Power, authority, and territory.

What a breakthrough! You finally see yourself as you really are! LMAO!!!

Simply saying so doesn't make it so. Neither the founders nor the framers of the 14th Amendment believed in the Play Law definition of jurisdiction. It is the intent of Congress according to their words as construed by the US courts that determines the meaning of the 14th Amendment and not some silly disjointed meaningless rambling babble from an uneducated grandiose psycho.

In the 503 days between the Trayvon Martin shooting and the George Zimmerman verdict ...... 10,865 blacks where killed but other blacks. Now, name one of them!

ALSO:
The United States ranks 3rd in Murders throughout the World.

But if you take out Chicago , Detroit , Washington DC and New Orleans, the United States is 4th from the Bottom for Murders.

These 4 Cities also have the toughest Gun Control Laws in the United States.

All 4 are also controlled by Democrats.

The intent of the constitution was to LIMIT government and what power it had over the citizens. Before America existed, there was pretty much just two classes of people. Those who had the gold, land and all the power, and then the people they used to serve them. This is the model the democrats are pushing on the country under the false pretense that our government can and will take care of us, and they are willing to tell any lie necessary to accomplish that.

That would be a blatant act of treason and would require a responsible citizenry to act upon it.

Thomas Jefferson articulates this very well.

The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.

Was the government to prescribe to us our medicine and diet, our bodies would be in such keeping as our souls are now.

I would rather be exposed to the inconveniences attending too much liberty than to those attending too small a degree of it.

“Laws that forbid the carrying of arms...disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes... Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man.”(Quoting Cesare Beccaria)

The beauty of the Second Amendment is that it will not be needed until they try to take it.

The policy of the American government is to leave their citizens free, neither restraining nor aiding them in their pursuits.

No man has a natural right to commit aggression on the equal rights of another, and this is all from which the laws ought to restrain him.

To take from one because it is thought that his own industry and that of his father’s has acquired too much, in order to spare to others, who, or whose fathers, have not exercised equal industry and skill, is to violate arbitrarily the first principle of association—the guarantee to every one of a free exercise of his industry and the fruits acquired by it.

I think myself that we have more machinery of government than is necessary, too many parasites living on the labor of the industrious.(Back then!)

When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty.

I am not a friend to a very energetic government. It is always oppressive.

LOL!!!

...the obama OBOT's are in a state of panic. They can't understand how weird this guy is. ALL of his documents are 100% faked up. obamacare is a faked up healthcare failure on a massive level. ALL of obama's claims of "millions of people signing up" are now being totally outed and exposed for what they are...nothing but another fraudulent sack of lies by obama.

NOBODY is signing up for that thing, it doesn't even make sense on ANY level... financially, tax-wise, or service. It is a massive red hearing, just like EVERYTHING OBAMA DOES...none of it holds up to scrutiny. In the end, and we are getting there rapidly, obamacare will fold and be the biggest presidential flop in history. There is simply NO WAY TO FINANCE it or run it. It is a another TITANIC, launched with the holes already in the hull such that it will sink before it even leaves the dock!

Everything obama does crashes and burns, and those who follow him are realizing this fact now. When they see how much it costs and realize that they can't even begin to afford $15-25K per year for a small family, and that that takes 60% of their take home pay, it will be all over. That is why nobody is signing up now, if they can even get on any site for it. obama can't even organize the signup, let alone the running of any program as big as this. He can't even get his own SS#, and has to steal it from a dead man that was born over 120 years ago, and whose name and SS# obama used to buy his house in 2009 in Chicago in the Resko deal, who is a convicted criminal.

Yeah, dream on you moron OBOT's. You are about to witness the resignation/impeachment/ total repudiation of your imposter.

obama.

lol!!

obama frauds:...

...his birth certificate, SS#(fails E-verify every single time), cut and paste-selective service card, deeds on his house, law degree that was lost, hidden passport records, college records, grades, transcripts, 5 aliases used by him...all of them illegal, applications to college that are hidden,....you name it, all indict obama for the fraud that he is.

Add to that Benghazi, the IRS scandals, the border fiasco, the NSA scandals, obamacare, Syria, Russia, Israel, Egypt, supporting our enemies and giving them massive amounts of military, money in the Billions, the sequester, now the shutdown of our government, all of the books on him that he says he was born in Kenya, his family says this, Michelle says this, the faked up Osama catch and toss overboard in the middle of the night, no photos of him, all the Navy SEALS being killed that were on that "raid",...where was obama for 9 hours during Benghazi?, the tanking economy, spying on all Americans, small businesses, the media, election fraud that was massive, etc...etc...etc...all illegal and totally define this maniac.

Not to mention his total trashing of the US CONSTITUTION with almost 1,000 executive orders, more than all presidents combined that ever served, his unilaterally writing and changing our laws...you name it. The list of obama's disasters is incredible and is growing by the minute.

This is just a small tip of the iceberg. It will get far worse. You are watching the implosion of his legacy right before your very eyes. And there is not one damn thing the OBOT's can do about it.

(Para. 34) Nor can it be doubted that it is the inherent right of every independent nation to determine for itself, and according to its own constitution and laws, what classes of persons shall be entitled to its citizenship.
Yep, Ark was born a citizen of China in the US and of course that would mean he wasn't eligible for citizenship in the US.
In 1866 we made the decision to not give citizenship to those that were subject to foreign powers and it was carried over into the 14th amendment with the clause "and subject to the jurisdiction, thereof" and everyone knows that an alien has never been subject to the jurisdiction of the US Constitution, only citizens enjoy that right.
Re: "and everyone knows that an alien has never been subject to the jurisdiction of the US Constitution./.."

That is what YOU and you alone say. But it is wrong. EVERYONE knows that every person inside the USA is subject to the jurisdiction of the USA except for foreign diplomats because everyone inside the USA must obey US law and can be charged and tried by US courts for violating US law EXCEPT for foreign diplomats.

Dale thinks that because he makes up something and repeats it enough times he may be able to convince some gullible person. But the meaning of "subject to the jurisdiction" is not determined by him. It is KNOWN by such experts on the Constitution as Bingham, and Senator Trumbull (who was responsible for the 14th Amendment on the Senate side), and both of them said that every child born in the USA is a Natural Born Citizen, as did the US Supreme Court in WKA, and as such constitutional scholars as Tucker and Rawle had been saying as far back as 1803 and 1829.

“Who does not know that every person born within the limits of the Republic is, in the language of the Constitution, a natural-born citizen.” Rep. Bingham, The congressional globe, Volume 61, Part 2. pg. 2212 (1869)”

"Therefore every person born within the United States, its territories or districts, whether the parents are citizens or aliens, is a natural born citizen in the sense of the Constitution, and entitled to all the rights and privileges appertaining to that capacity."---William Rawle, A VIEW OF THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. 2d ed.(1829)

"Every child born in the United States is a natural-born United States citizen except for the children of diplomats.”---Senator Lindsay Graham (December 11, 2008 letter to constituents)

“What is a natural born citizen? Clearly, someone born within the United States or one of its territories is a natural born citizen.”(Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on OCTOBER 5, 2004)--Senator Orrin G. Hatch (R-UT).

“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.]
