ACLU to Obama: You Can't Just Kill Citizens Whenever
By Nick Baumann
Mon Oct. 11, 2010
For months, the news media has been full of reports that the Obama administration plans to kill Anwar Al-Awlaki, an accused terrorist who also happens to be a US citizen. This summer, two human rights groups sued on Al-Awlaki's behalf. Despite the possibility that Al-Awlaki could be killed at any moment, the court battle over his fate has already dragged on for weeks without even touching on the government's evidence against him. Instead, the Obama administration has been trying to have its cake and eat it—or rather keep its secrets and kill its alleged terrorist—too.
The lawsuit pits the American Civil Liberties Union, the Center for Constitutional Rights, and Anwar Al-Awlaki's father, Nasser, against the full force of the Obama administration. In the government's first response to the case, filed late last month, Justice Department lawyers deployed a number of tough legal arguments—including their trump card, the so-called "state secrets" privilege, which allows the government to argue that even hearing the case could pose a dire threat to national security.
By invoking state secrets, the Obama administration wasn't just arguing that it can kill its citizens. It was also saying that it doesn't have to explain the legal or factual basis for the killing.

Most of your opposition won't read your endless, distorted, cut-and-paste gibberish. Most people on your side probably can't read anyway. Either way, you're wasting your time and the earth's resources.

I hope and pray that B.O. is a one-time president for the sake of our country. I believe he is on a mission to take this country to socialism and anything that hinders his goal is hammered, or a new law is passed to help him go forward. I would vote for Mike Huckabee in a heartbeat; Mike can discuss things with anyone without taking sides and Mike has his head on straight!

"However, Gibbs said he doesn't expect the president to be hitting the campaign trail anytime soon."

WHAT???? He hasn't stopped campaigning, since he won his Senate seat in 2006! That's ALL he knows!

. The sad part my fake marine friend is only way Obama could improve his approval number is taking advantage of the Tucson shootings. Obama made a speech complete with cheering and t-shirts at a memorial service. Tasteless, classless, and lacking civility all at once. Pathetic losers like you seize on these types of tragedies.

OBAMA IS A USURPER, PERIOD.

Barack Hussein Obama is not a natural born citizen, because his father was not a U.S. citizen. His father was a British subject, and because of that fact, Barack Obama was born a subject of the Crown and later became a citizen of Kenya and Indonesia, when adopted by Lolo Sotoro. Even if he had been born in Hawaii, and his mother was old enough to pass U.S. citizenship on to him, he would still only be a citizen - not a natural born citizen.

Natural born status must exist at the moment of birth. It can not be earned, or received at a later date, or by a retroactive law.

History answers the question of what “natural born citizen” means, and leaves NO wiggle room for debate or wishful agenda-driven interpretations.

The term was first used by the British Royal family. The question at the time was how to keep the Royal bloodline intact when members of the Royal family traveled abroad extensively, often giving birth to offspring while abroad, therefore bringing the issue of “native born” into question.

Native is a term relative to geography, where a person is at the time of birth.

This issue came up as a challenge to John McCain during his 2008 bid for the White House, as he was born “off base” at a local hospital in Panama while his father was stationed on a Navy base in Panama.

As a diversionary tactic to lead obvious questions away from Barack Hussein Obama, some challenged McCain’s “natural born” status as a presidential candidate on the basis that he was not “native born” on US soil, or on US territory, the US Naval Base in Panama. Congress, therefore, passed a resolution proclaiming McCain a “natural born citizen” on the basis that he was the “natural born” son of two US citizens, more specifically, the natural born son of a US Naval Commander.

However, no such resolution exists for Barack Hussein Obama, and here’s why;

The term “native” relates to the geographic location of birth. But the term “natural” relates to the “laws of natural,” ergo family lineage or the bloodline of the father.

The term “natural born citizen” next appears in the Law of Nations, a treaty between nations which established certain universal standards, one of which being the term “natural born citizen.”

Further clarification —“The society is supposed to desire this, in consequence of what it owes to its own preservation; and it is presumed, as matter of course, that each citizen, on entering into society, reserves to his children the right of becoming members of it. The country of the fathers is therefore that of the children;”

And the final blow to Barack Hussein Obama —“I say, that, in order to be of the country, it is necessary that a person be born of a father who is a citizen; for, if he is born there of a foreigner, it will be only the place of his birth, and not his country.”

The subject of “natural law” found in the Law of Nations is entirely consistent with the Royal British purpose of the term “natural born citizen.” It keeps the family bloodline intact on the basis of the father’s blood, aka “natural law.” It is the source from which our nation’s Founding Fathers entered those words into Our U.S. Constitution, under Article II—Section I—Clause V;

“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;”

This imposter, Obama, MUST be arrested and charged with the crime of trying to overthrow Our form of government.
