About the US Constitution's Requirement for Presidents to be "Natural Born Citizens"

By: Patrick Haworth

Although this blog normally points to what others have to say about the issues of the day, occasionally one of us will opine or simply ask questions that the reading public is welcome to help us discover accurate answers for.

Yesterday, Jerome Corsi, reported that a California Court has ...

"tentatively scheduled a trial for Jan. 26, 2010, for a case that challenges Barack Obama's eligibility to be president based on questions over his qualifications under the requirements of the U.S. Constitution."
which would possibly,
"... be the first time the merits of the dispute have been argued in open court".
That story can be found here. ------>

Now, for this blog editor's combination of opine and questioning:

While I don't take just a whole lot of comfort in knowing that Joseph Biden and Nancy Pelosi are next in line behind Barry Soetoro, I do just believe that the only proper option for certain individuals to take would be to attempt to discover whether the US Constitution's requirement for Presidents to have natural born citizenship was followed or subverted.

Just as a nurse, by law (and by common sense), should report to authorities if she even suspects the possibility of child abuse, a thorough show of concern should be expected from oppositional candidates, the Secretary of Defense (They are sworn to defend the US Constitution and follow the orders of the Commander-In-Chief), the head of the Federal Elections Commission, and the Chief Justice of the United States, if they have any reason to suspect a possible subversion of the US Constitution by a Presidential Candidate or a U.S. President.

No one has yet answered the question, as far as I know, "Who is the controlling legal authority that is responsible for verifying that this part of the US Constitution is faithfully held up?" Who is it? The Supreme Court? The Chair of the FEC? Congress? Who? Let's remember that the United States is not to be ruled over by a king. This country is to be run by the rule of law and no one (no leader or candidate) is to be held above the law.
