From 2003 to 2008, members of Congress made eight attempts to eliminate the Constitution’s Article II – Section I – Clause V requirement, which states that “no person except a natural-born citizen of the United States” can hold the office of President.
The 9:24 video below proposes that in the years leading up to Barack Obama’s run for president, his power base, which was grooming him for the presidency, made a concerted effort from June 11, 2003 through February 28, 2008, to change the Constitution’s natural-born citizen requirement.
“Strong evidence suggests that [Barack Obama] was being groomed from a very young age for the moment in history that would end American supremacy in the world, and usher in a new era of Global Marxist Governance.”—JB Williams, Managing Editor, The Patriot News
The makers of the video cite the congressional record to show that there were eight proposals by members of Congress to modify the constitutional requirement for those not natural-born but have lived in the United States for X-number of years:
• June 11, 2003, Rep. Vic Snyder, D-Ark., brought HJR 59. It was intended to “permit persons who are not natural born citizens of the United States, but who have been citizens of the United States for at least 35 years, to be eligible to hold the offices of president and vice president.”
• Sept. 3, 2003, Rep. John Conyers, D-Mich., brought HJR67, which would have done the same as Snyder’s, only the requirement to be a citizen was lowered to 20 years.
• Feb. 25, 2004, Sen. Don Nickles, R-Okla., brought S.B. 2128 to “try to counter the growing Democrat onslaught aimed at removing the natural born citizen requirement.” But it defined NBC as someone who was born in and is subject to the United States,” which was not the understanding of the framers of the Constitution.
• Sept. 15, 2004, Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, R-Calif., brought HJR 104, “to make eligible for the office of president a person who is not a natural born citizen of the United States but has been a United States citizen for at least 20 years.”
• Jan. 4, 2005, Conyers, D-Mich., HJR2, the same as Rohrabacher’s.
• Feb. 1, 2005, HJR15, Rohrabacher, to require only 20 years citizenship to be eligible for the office of president.
• April 14, 2005, Snyder, HJR42, requiring 35 years’ citizenship.
• Feb. 28, 2008, Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., tried to attach to SB 2678, Children of Military Families Natural Born Citizen Act, an amendment clarifying what “natural-born citizen” includes. Obama and then-Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., were sponsors.
Having failed to alter or remove the requirement, the Senate then changed the focus of the issue and passed Senate Resolution 511, which addressed John McCain’s qualifications but not Barack Obama’s.
According to the video, the Ruler met in secret with eight of the nine U.S. Supreme Court justices following the 2008 election.
The meeting was held even though there were legal challenges in which Obama was a defendant pending before the Supreme Court at the time. The attorneys for the plaintiffs never were told of the meeting or invited to participate …
