Trump to Cruz: Prove You’re American or GTFO
Donald Trump, the face of birtherism as we know it, has lately begun to single out Ted Cruz over his status as a “natural-born citizen.” Nevermind that no serious pundit or politician is really raising these concerns. Nevermind that Ted Cruz’s eligibility to be in this race is not actually in question. Donald Trump is going to make an issue of this, because Donald Trump | Read More »
The stress of citizenship
I once worked for a company that put its employees through one of those lengthy performance evaluations that included psych-test essay questions, such as “How do you define ‘stress,’ and how could you reduce the amount of stress in your workday?” I was young and new to such evaluations, so I’d never really thought much about “stress” before. I was convinced it had nothing to | Read More »
Erasing your identity
Moe Lane earlier discussed the remarkable hypocrisy of a march against voter ID in North Carolina requiring participants to bring their photo ID cards to the event. I’m not sure “hypocrisy” is quite the right word, although it has been widely used in connection with this story. The charge of hypocrisy would imply the North Carolina activists (well, actually, they bused in manpower from across | Read More »
We, the citizens of the United States
Ann Coulter tears into Marco Rubio today, and it’s not pretty… but speaking as a longtime fan of the Senator from Florida, I have to admit I’ve been having similar thoughts lately. Here is how Rubio explained the powerful border-enforcing mechanism in his bill on “Fox News Sunday,” which he denied was merely a meaningless goal: “Basically, Homeland Security will have five years to meet | Read More »
The true “path to citizenship”
Everyone has advice for the Republican Party these days. Even discounting the suspicious input from people who clearly don’t have the Party’s best interests at heart, there are still plenty of contradictory plans for the future on the table. The Republican National Committee just released a report called “The Growth & Opportunity Project,” which generally advised Republicans to embrace some “Democrat Lite” positions on issues | Read More »
Would The Real Issue Please Stand Up?
Like so many other things, too many issues are being clumped together as one big problem, when the reality is those issues are at best only partially related, and at worst an issue with no basis in reality. Immigration policy It’s unfortunate that the actions of a group of people who circumvent a nation’s laws in order to enter or stay in that nation are | Read More »
Muslim Obama Wants to Socialize America
Muslim Obama Wants to Socialize America Where there is smoke, there is fire. Facts make it seem clear that Obama is a Muslim. He claims to be Christian, but not according to facts. His American citizenship has been questioned for good reason, but according to the Constitution [http://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/8/1401], he can retain American citizenship, remaining a Muslim. FACT #1: ‘Dhimmitude’ is defined as the Muslim system | Read More »
Immigration, Citizenship, Conservatively Speaking
Citizenship was once a nationality status, the founding fathers of the United States struggled greatly over this issue to protect individual liberty and protect against indentured service known as slavery. 1770, Crispus Attucks, a free dockworker of African descent was the first person shot to death by British redcoats during the Boston Massacre.

Who has the guts to tackle illegal immigration?
Illegal immigration is one of the most pressing issues that America is facing today. It is our foreign policy, it is our domestic policy. Yet, since President Bush’s amnesty bill failed in 2007, no legitimate attempts at immigration reform have been attempted. The blame should fall directly onto the shoulders of Barack Obama. Rather than pushing through a solution to this problem, newly-elected democrats in | Read More »

What if there really is no birth certificate . . . or worse?
The Worst Constitutional Crisis – What if He’s Not an Eligible President? Yesterday morning I saw a classic Matt Drudge post, teasing Corsi’s long-hyped investigative expose of his “findings” regarding President Obama’s real place of birth, and status as a “natural born citizen” of the United States (for those of you in California that thought Arnold WAS president, the ‘natural born’ clause is still a | Read More »
Is the Canada Free Press legitimate?
I’ve avoided worrying about Obama’s being a natural born citizen by thinking that surely election officials would have called foul before the election. Now I see this in Google news: ” DC Knows that Obama is Ineligible for Office Canada Free Press – Jb Williams – Apr 20, 2010 Members from all three branches of the Federal government already know that Barack Hussein Obama is | Read More »
Rights of state citizenship
In “Federal building codes Part III,” an allusion was made to the problem of a federal and state armed robbery statute applicable to one set of facts. The federal Hobbs Act is an armed robbery statute applicable to armed robberies affecting interstate commerce. It is simply a fact that all armed robberies affect interstate commerce. And it is simply a fact that all states have | Read More »
“Tea Parties” and American Citizenship
by Michael Mandaville www.CitizenSoldierHandbook.com The recent Tea Parties were an exhilirating exhibition of American patriotism, activism and Citizen participation in our democracy. Of course, that’s now how the left-wing dominated media saw it. They were called unhealthy and the highly politicized timing of Janet Napolitano’s report from Homeland Security merely highlighted the use at which a politicized government agenda will use available means to tamp | Read More »
