CONSTITUTIONAL CRISIS UPDATE
“The Pure Truth”
by Pixel Patriot May 14th, 2012
The Office of the President of the United States of America
You can’t earn it. You can’t buy it. You can’t own it. You can’t sell it. You can’t quid pro quo it. You can’t usurp it.
There are however 3 requirements which the Founders of our Republic placed in the Constitution in order to prevent dual allegiance and foreign influence over the pinnacle of power embodied by the highest executive officer who is also Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces.
U.S. Constitution 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; neither shall any person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.
It has been permanently deeded to American Citizens or “We the People” and the collateral is none other than the blood of American Patriots. If you’re looking for a fight, just try to steal it.
One of the most eloquent descriptions ever to elucidate this non-negotiable contract was made by the Honorable Charles A. Johns.
|Hon. Charles A. Johns (June 25, 1857 - January 11, 1932)
As the 47th Associate Justice of the Oregon Supreme Court, he should know.
In an address (pp.472-473) before the Agricultural College of Corvallis, OR; the spirit of the law rings true for those to whom he was speaking as well as for future generations.
“The Offices of president and vice-president are the only offices in the gift of the American people which the constitution provides must be filled by a natural born citizen.”
Nothing short of an amendment to the Constitution duly ratified by three fourths of the State’s legislatures can rescind this safeguard protecting the Republic from tyranny.
The Rotunda for the Charters of Freedom in the National Archives houses Barry Faulkner’s 1936 rendition of the Constitutional Convention. In the mural, Madison presents Washington with the final draft of the Constitution.
225 years ago on this historic day May 14th, 1787, the delegates for the Constitutional Convention began to assemble in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The delegates elected George Washington to preside over the convention and John Jay, our nation’s first Chief Justice in a letter to Washington said:
“Permit me to hint whether it would not be wise and seasonable to provide a strong check to the admission of foreigners into the administration of our national government; and to declare expressly that the command in chief of the American army shall not be given to, nor devolve on any but a natural born citizen.”
- John Jay, 1st Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States
Although the Committee on Detail originally proposed that the President must be merely a citizen as well as a resident for 21 years, the Committee of Eleven changed "citizen" to "natural born citizen" and the Convention adopted the change.
Barack Hussein Obama II has publicly admitted his father Barack Obama Sr. was a Kenyan native and a British subject whose citizenship status was governed by The British Nationality Act of 1948. Barack Obama Sr. never became a U.S citizen. Therefore, Barack Hussein Obama II is not now and never can be a natural born Citizen of the United States by virtue of his recognized allegiance to a sovereign foreign nation inherited from his father and thereby precluding him from eligibility for the Office of the President of the United States. Therefore, according to Article II Section 1 Clause 5 of the United States Constitution as defined in the United States Supreme Court case of Minor v. Happerset 88 U.S. 162 (1875) which set binding precedent, Obama was an ineligible candidate in 2008. And since there have been no amendments to Article II of the U.S. Constitution since it was adopted on September 17th, 1787 and ratified on June 21st, 1788; Barack Obama usurped the office of the Presidency in 2008.
After Justice Johns brings life to Article II of the Constitution it is not surprising he would also warn the nation about the dangers precipitated in a lack of allegiance to the Constitution:
“In the early days you never knew or heard of anarchists, bolshevists or the I. W. W., and there were no tramps. All such were foreign to your principles, teachings and traditions. Although you loved liberty and freedom, you believed in law and order. With you it was a matter of sentiment and of conviction, and you knew that you could not have and enjoy either of them without law and order.
We now have bolshevists, anarchists and the I. W. W., and there are many who do not honor or respect the flag or know what it means. Everyone believes in development and modern progress, and that it should be the privilege of every person to have and enjoy the real pleasures of life. It is such rights that make life worth living. This should not be at the expense or sacrifice of substance or fundamental principles.
The bolshevists and I. W. W. were never generic to this country and are not the product of its pioneers. That class of people have not felt the true spirit of our institutions and do not know the history and traditions of this country. They do not know the meaning of and have not read the Declaration of Independence or the Federal Constitution.
This country must not become Europeanized under the false pretense of liberty and freedom. It must and will remain true to the traditions of its pioneers and the founders of the nation, and people who come here from foreign soil must honor and respect the American flag. Our constitution, both state and Federal, is founded upon the Declaration of Independence, is broad, liberal and elastic, but for the safety and protection of American thoughts and ideas and those fundamental principles upon which our government is founded, and our own liberty and freedom, the time has come when any foreigner who will not stand for and who does not believe in law and order or respect the flag of this nation is not fit to be an American citizen, and ought not to be permitted to land upon American soil. It is not for that class of people to say what laws we should have or how they should be enforced or construed, or to teach us the meaning of the constitution, or to defeat or impair the underlying fundamental principles of our form of government.”
Once again, an American Statesman who fully understands the need for allegiance to be the thread that sews the tapestry of American society.
Now let us compare and contrast the influence of the progressive movement on America between the time of Justice Johns and that of today using three criteria:
1. The “Rule of Law”
2. The term of art – “natural born Citizen”
3. Shifting Paradigms
1. The “Rule of Law”
As a century of sand has settled in the hourglass, the concept of the “Rule of Law” in 21st Century America is completely unrecognizable from that of previous generations.
Eugene Debs was one of the nation’s foremost Socialists of the 20th Century. In 1894 during Debs' Rebellion, striking American Railway Union members confronted Illinois National Guard troops in Chicago, Illinois.
On July 9, 1894, a New York Times editorial called Debs "a lawbreaker at large, an enemy of the human race.”
However, the New York Times of today sees the “Rule of Law” in general and the Constitution in particular to be a hindrance to the Socialist’s agenda joining the main stream media as a propaganda tool of the putative Obama administration.
From jail, the works of Karl Marx would influence Eugene Debs and by 1897 he had declared himself to be a Socialist. Debs ran as the Socialist Party's candidate for the presidency in 1900, 1904, 1908, 1912, and 1920.

Debs denounced American participation in World War I leading to his second arrest in 1918. He was charged with 10 counts of sedition and convicted under the Espionage Act of 1917. He went to prison on April 13, 1919 with President Woodrow Wilson calling him a "traitor to his country."
|Eugene Debs, United States Penitentiary, Atlanta, GA
On May 1st, 2012 the Constitutionally elected Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Maricopa County along with his Cold Case Posse held a press conference declaring Obama’s identity documents including a multi-layered composited electronic birth certificate and an altered Selective Service Draft Registration card to be a forgery. During the one-hour presentation he reported to the media that he “could not in good faith say that these documents are authentic.” As for the few reporters that showed up, Sheriff Arpaio said “they didn't even ask about the proof of the case. They didn't ask about the facts that we had.” Additionally, Sheriff Arpaio said that the birth certificate fraud that is being perpetrated is “10 times worse than Watergate” and calling it the “worst media blackout in history.”
The Cold Case Posse though volunteer based; represents an elite 5-member group of investigative professionals. This fact-finding team brings together individuals chosen for their respective expertise ranging from experience in law enforcement conducting investigations, conducting criminal forensic examinations; as well as lawyers who have participated in criminal or civil cases.
So here we are a century after Justice Johns spoke of the importance of law and order and allegiance to the flag with the irony of ironies; that “America’s Sheriff” born on Flag Day has to be the one to follow the truth surrounding the criminal usurping the U. S. Presidency in 2008.
Sheriff Arpaio has been in law enforcement for over half a century, 25 years of which were at the Federal level and for the media to avoid or refuse to report the findings of this lawful and authoritative investigation is evidence itself of a complicit media intent on subverting the “Rule of Law.”
2. Natural Born Citizen
The main stream media has worked overtime since 2008 to equate the term “natural born Citizen” with that of “Citizen” in support of allowing the Socialist Barack Obama to usurp the Office of the President of the United States. Contrastingly though, during the tumultuous times at the start of the 20th Century, the evidence is clear that there was no misunderstanding as to the fact that a “natural born Citizen” was unique from both citizens by statute or naturalization and aliens.
In 1917 the World War I Selective Service Draft Registration Card delineated between a “natural born Citizen”, a naturalized citizen and an alien. Yes, this was after both the adoption of the Fourteenth Amendment in 1868 and the Wong Kim Ark case was decided by the U.S. Supreme Court in 1898.
Even the Socialists at that time knew what a “natural born Citizen” was and publicly used it as a point of contention in a protest to the President of the United States because it would support their agenda!
Here’s how it all played out. Socialists, communists, anarchists and unionists all protested the jailing of Eugene Debs in 1919. As Debs made his last run for the Presidency during the 1920 election from the Atlanta Federal Penitentiary in Atlanta, GA; a supporter proclaimed the following:
|By Ernest Freeberg, Harvard University Press 2008
|According to the Indiana Historical Society, “Eugene Victor Debs (1855-1926) was born in Terre Haute, Indiana, of parents who had immigrated from Germany in 1849.”
As attested by Benjamin Franklin, the Founders “continually” and “frequently” consulted Emmerich de Vattel’s treatise “The Law of Nations or the Principles of Natural Law” (1758) as they chartered the founding documents of a new nation.
The Law of Nations or the Principles of Natural Law (1758)
Emmerich de Vattel
Here we see Vattel unequivocally defines “natural born Citizen”:
Book 1, Chapter 19, § 212. Citizens and natives:
“The citizens are the members of the civil society; bound to this society by certain duties, and subject to its authority, they equally participate in its advantages. The natives, or natural-born citizens, are those born in the country, of parents who are citizens.”
The U.S. Supreme Court weighed in with a unanimous opinion in the case
“The Constitution does not in words say who shall be natural-born citizens. Resort must be had elsewhere to ascertain that. At common law, with the nomenclature of which the framers of the Constitution were familiar, it was never doubted that all children born in a country of parents who were its citizens became themselves, upon their birth, citizens also. These were natives or natural-born citizens, as distinguished from aliens or foreigners.”
On the heels of this Supreme Court decision, the American statesman JusticeJohns whom held such a high regard for the law; graduated just 3 years later near the top of his class in 1878. In what would surely engender the kindred spirit of Sheriff Arpaio, Johns’ law career immediately began with his appointment to deputy Sheriff of Marion County serving until his term ended in 1880. Then he studied law in the office of the Honorable William H. Holmes and was admitted to the bar in 1881.
|Charles A. Johns
Therefore, anyone that takes an intellectually honest review of American Law at the end of the 19th century would conclude that the nexus existing between “natural born Citizen” as it pertains to allegiance was strengthened, however it remained a point of vulnerability for the nation’s security yet to be exploited.
There’s more work to be done.
3. Shifting Paradigms
With the advent of new technologies, a “Free Press” has consistently found its way into the hands, hearts and minds of the people. As higher priced subscription newspapers gave way to the “Penny Press”, a broader base of readers including the middle, working and poorer classes compelled publishers to include information about the police and crime in their reporting while overall, news and journalism took on a greater significance within society.
Later advances include the first radio news broadcast in 1920 and the first news event to be televised was the nomination of Alfred E. Smith for the Presidency in Albany, New York, on August 22, 1928. Sputnik ushered in the age of satellite communications in 1957 and shortly thereafter the dawning of the internet produced an information revolution.
Winston Churchill - “A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on.”
To put these advances in communication into context, let’s look at a prime example of how the media has played a major role in trying to rewrite history and subvert the “Rule of Law”.
Lowell Palmer Weicker, Jr.
Born May 16, 1931 in Paris, France
Lowell P. Weicker Jr. was born in Paris France in 1931. During his political career in Connecticut he served as State Representative, U.S. Congress/U.S. Senate and as Governor.
In March of 1979, Weicker announced his candidacy for President but dropped out on May 16th before the Republican primary. Then in 1995, Weicker commissioned research on what it would take to get on the 50 state ballots as an independent, however after polling by a Connecticut paper revealed an approval rating of just 15% he dropped out. Gallup did not even include Weicker in their polling saying “it’s not worth it.”
On the run up to the 2000 Presidential election, there was talk of a third party. On July 16th, 1999; CNN released the results of polling data that included up to 6 prospective candidates for the Reform Party. However, for a major news organization that “promotes themselves” as a trusted news source to include Lowell P. Weicker Jr. who was born in Paris, France as a prospective Presidential candidate, they were erroneously giving him a sense of legitimacy in the eyes of the public.
|Lowell Weicker Poll
Then on Monday, October 4th, 1999, Weicker was interviewed on "The Today Show” and he predicted that "Split Allegiances" would prevent him from winning the Presidency. NBC should have asked him why he was running in the first place since he was born in Paris, France and therefore ineligible.
By 11:18 am ET, USA Today had filed their report on the NBC interview followed by other national media including the Associated Press and the L.A. Times.
The result of the aggregate political coverage of Lowell Weicker as a viable Presidential candidate in 1999 by the national media had profound implications for the “natural born citizen” requirement in the eyes of the American public, because it was now perceived as irrelevant and in effect, was subverting Article II of the U.S. Constitution.
This was a watershed episode in American politics as well as a seminal moment in American history because the political class perceived this as a chink in the armor for the Article II requirement of the Constitution. The political calculus was then made that by factoring in a complicit media, the American citizenry would accept the idea of sole allegiance to the Republic as endowed by a “natural born Citizen” and required in Article II to now be…optional, err… expendable. Immediately following this apparent green light was a progressive political movement giving rise to no less than 8 attempts in 22 months by Congress to remove the “natural-born” requirement from the Constitution for Presidential eligibility.
What is important to point out is that it is completely within the purview of Congress to amend the Constitution. However, considering the level of support needed from their respective constituencies to make it through the arduous process, it is not surprising all attempts failed.
I repeat. All attempts failed.
Or did they?
Upon further analysis a classic fox guarding the hen house conflict of interest comes to light. Rep. Darrell Issa [CA-49] was a co-sponsor for the bill H.J.R. 59 during the 108th Congress which would have removed the “natural born citizen” requirement in Article II. Rep. Issa has served on The Committee on Oversight and Government Reform since the 109th Congress and currently serves as Chairman. This breach of trust symbolizes how our representatives appear as though they are looking out for the public’s interests when in all reality; nothing could be further from the truth.
It is no wonder then that the progressives were not deterred. Róger Calero, the Socialist from Nicaragua ran for President in 2004 and 2008. The major political parties and a complicit media have now become so emboldened that they can successfully nominate and endorse a candidate for President while proffering forged and fraudulent documents with impunity. Disparate election laws even allow candidates to go unchallenged in some states and as well as gaining ballot access without having to provide any documentation verifying qualifications at all!
The effect this deceit is having on the nation experienced as a whole is manifested as a phenomenon whereby people cannot believe that crimes of this magnitude could be flagrantly perpetrated and still go unreported and unpunished; therefore they can’t possibly be true and the cognitive reality is too hard to fathom.
Adding ridicule to insult and injury, the media has skillfully attacked anyone merely asking a question no matter how close it tangentially approaches Obama’s eligibility with derision by calling them the pejorative “birther”. Though this strategy has been very effective at deflecting discourse on the issue, it does not however remove culpability.
Numerous online biographies for Lowell Weicker have been scrubbed or excluded of any reference to his run for the U.S. Presidency. Why? It happened. It’s a part of history right?
After I published an essay last year with links to CNN reports on Lowell Weicker and presidential polling data from 1999, the CNN report on Weicker was scrubbed. As of the publishing of this report the polling data remains on their server as a live link. Why would the Weicker report be scrubbed?
Why would this data from 1999 still be online in 2011 except for it being a historical reference? Who called CNN and told them to scrub it? In case the polling data gets scrubbed it can still be accessed here.
Political Correctness and the “Rule of Law” Cannot Co-Exist
The Constitution is the “Rule of Law” and the process for change was incorporated into it through the amendment process.
“If, in the opinion of the people, the distribution or modification of the constitutional powers be in any particular wrong, let it be corrected by an amendment in the way which the Constitution designates. But let there be no change by usurpation; for though this, in one instance, may be the instrument of good, it is the customary weapon by which free governments are destroyed.”
“Against the insidious wiles of foreign influence, (I conjure you to believe me, fellow citizens,) the jealousy of a free people ought to be constantly awake since history and experience prove, that foreign influence is one of the most baneful foes of republican government.”
The culture of Political Correctness inundates our society unabated. Whereas the knowledge of right and wrong used to be accompanied with the expectation of consequences for lawbreakers, it has now devolved into a highly polarized society in which two factions are merely seen as the Left and Right and hypocrisy reigns. When an ineligible Barack Hussein Obama openly says the U.S. Constitution (which is the “Law of the Land”) is a flawed document, yet he still gets elected flaunting his ineligibility; that is treason. Why are but a very few willing to stand up to this tyranny while the vast majority in our society are saying we don’t want to get involved or it’s not my responsibility and collectively the sentiment is “we wash our hands” of it as Pilate declared? Ironically, when Pilate said it he placed his hands over a catch basin and poured from a pitcher his mystical elixir of purification to wash away the guilt. However, the morally debased members of our society today are either drowning in a sea of guilt and still think they can wash their hands of it or completely lack a conscience and feel no shame at all.
That is “The Pure Truth.” The truth shouldn’t need a qualifier but evidently in our society it does. Previously, the qualifier for Truth was associated with one’s sworn oath to tell “the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.” However, with a corrupt judicial system and the abject failure of our representatives at all levels of government who refuse to honor their oath to support the constitution; it is imperative that “We the People” not settle for anything short of “The Pure Truth” in every aspect of our lives in particular as well as demanding nothing less from society as a whole.
The Founders deliberately included “natural born Citizen” as the qualifier in Article II of the Constitution to ensure sole allegiance to the Republic and its Armed Forces. However, the nomination process for President is an honor system and Barack Obama and malevolent forces have betrayed the Republic and dishonored that process. This cabal is hell bent on allowing the usurpation of the Presidency to continue. For you to ignore this fight would make you complicit. Get engaged in this fight for the Truth, the whole Truth and nothing but the Truth, or “The Pure Truth” by supporting the efforts to institute a legally binding vetting apparatus at both the state and federal level designed to uphold the “Rule of Law”.
