Will there be a Citizenship Eligibility Challenge for Romney?
The worn out race card has been used by the sycophants who support Barack Obama aka Barry Soetoro aka Barry Dunham aka Barack Dunham to crush any discussion regarding his eligibility. Race baiters in the corrupt, disgraced media who wear their socialist ideology like a badge of honor continue to chant "birthers" are all racists because Obama/Soetoro is black. They conveniently forget Barry's mother, Stanley Ann Dunham was white. The correct racial definition is half Caucasian, half Negro. But, none of that matters to the gangsters who prop up Soetoro or the useful fools who proclaim his brilliance.
Nor do any of the liars for hire in the media playing the race card ever bring up the very first ballot challenge in 2008. Leo Donofrio, an attorney in New Jersey, raised the first concerns regarding citizenship when he filed to keep Obama/Soetoro off the ballot. The other two candidates in Leo's case were John McCain and a foreign national who was obviously ineligible. No mention is ever made of Leo's case against McCain not being constitutionally eligible.
Was this challenge to Obama/Soetoro's citizenship unanticipated? I don't believe so. Leo filed his papers in October 2008; you can view all of them here. The powers behind the scenes began to grease the wheels shortly after Soetoro became a state senator in Illinois. By February 2008, chicanery was underway as this relatively unknown with no paper trail to his life makes a bid for the White House. There were obviously people with a lot at stake who knew there was a problem with Barry's citizenship and tried to cut it off before it became an issue:
In February 2008, Democrats (and one Republican) began pushing legislation on the issue of citizenship:
"...on February 28, 2008, Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) introduced a bill to the Senate for consideration. That bill was known as S. 2678: Children of Military Families Natural Born Citizen Act. The bill was co-sponsored by Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL), Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-NY), Sen. Robert Menendez (D-NJ), and Sen. Thomas Coburn (R-OK).
"Bill S. 2678 attempted to change article II, section 1, clause 5 of the Constitution of the United States with reference to the requirements of being a “natural born citizen” and hence; the entitlement to run for President of the United States. This bill met the same fate that similar attempts to change the Constitution have in the past. Attempts such as The Natural Born Citizen Act were known to have failed and the text scrubbed from the internet, with only a shadow-cached copy left, that only the most curious public can find....
"Within only five short weeks after Senate Bill 2678 faded from the floor, we find Sen. Claire McCaskill back again, making another attempt with Senate Resolution 511. On April 10, 2008, she introduced a secondary proposal in the form of a non-binding resolution, recognizing John McCain as a “natural born citizen” in defiance of the Constitution. Curiously, it contained the same identical co-sponsors, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.
"One has to wonder — what dire urgency could there possibly have been in persisting with trying to legislate a candidate into being a “natural born citizen”? Certainly providing a birth certificate and reading the Constitution would be more than sufficient. Why did these candidates and their wishful nominees go to such lengths in the Senate when obviously, they had more pressing matters to attend to? And why were there two Senators co-sponsoring such an issue, twice, who were in direct competition with John McCain in the 2008 election?"
McCain was drug into the conspiracy so everyone looked fair: What is good for a RINO is good for whatever his real name is.
If you read Leo's documents, he addresses the issue of McCain's ineligibility; see this page.
The U.S. Supreme Court refused to grant an oral hearing on Leo's case. An endless stream of lawsuits have followed over the years. Of course, none of this would have happened had the Outlaw Congress done their job, January 9, 2009 and stopped the electoral college vote. The controversy was raging full steam by then regarding Obama/Soetoro's constitutional eligibility, yet not one member of Congress, not Michelle Bachmann, not Ron Paul, not one single member of Congress had the courage to stand up, invoke house rules and begin a legitimate investigation.
There will be a hearing, January 26, 2012, in the State of Georgia to keep the usurper off the ballot. The plaintiffs have won the first round: Judge Malihi refused Obama's Motion to Dismiss. We shall see if he has the courage to do what will send shock waves throughout the world: If Soetoro isn't constitutionally eligible now, he wasn't in 2008. Translated: the Oval Office has been empty since George Bush left. Usurper means someone who has usurped the office, but does not legally occupy it. Soetoro cannot be impeached. I sincerely wish people would understand that if a successful impeachment happened, it would set one of the worst legal precedents in our history.
I have no candidate preference for president in 2012, so there is absolutely no bias on my part in bringing up the problem with Mitt Romney. As an old warrior activist going on 21 years, I know what they all stand for and what they won't stand up for. Constitutional eligibility doesn't have anything to do with political party loyalty. It has to do with the supreme law of the land and upholding the law so our republic doesn't turn into complete lawlessness and anarchy.
Any candidate, Republican, Democrat, Green Party, Independent Party, Libertarian Party, Constitution Party - you name it - cannot expect to put a candidate on the ballot for president if that candidate isn't eligible under the Constitution. It doesn't matter if that candidate is a person of color, Caucasian, Asian or Hispanic. The only thing that matters for ballot qualification is constitutional eligibility. Will we see Romney held to the same standards as the effort to expose Soetoro for the fraud and liar he is?
But, Mitt Romney was born in America, right? He was born on March 12, 1947 in Detroit, Michigan. That is not in dispute. But, what is in dispute is his father's citizenship at the time Willard was born with the exact same situation with Obama/Soetoro.
While I don't entirely trust Wikipedia, they at least get part of it right regarding Mitt Romney's father: "Romney was born to American parents in the Mormon Colonies in Mexico; events during the Mexican Revolution forced his family to move back to the United States when he was a child."
Mr. George W. Romney, was elected Governor of Michigan. Because there was talk George W. might run for the presidency, his citizenship eligibility came into question and because it extends to the child at the time of birth, there is now question regarding Willard (Mitt) Romney:
Mitt Romney's, father George W. Romney, Not A Natural Born Citizen of the United States of America, and was NOT, eligible for the Office of President, by Pinckney G. McElwee of D.C. Bar.)
Congressional Record (House) June 14, 1967
"I find no proper legal or historical basis on which to conclude that a person born outside of the United States could ever be eligible to occupy the Office of the President of the United States. In other words, In my opinion, Mr. George Romney of Michigan Is Ineligible to become President of the United States because he was born In Mexico and is, therefore, not a natural-born citizen as required by the United States Constitution."
Thus, we have the same situation as with Obama/Soetoro: A father born in a foreign country who never became a U.S. citizen. Several people have been doing some serious research on this:
"The big question is this…how did George and Gaskell Romney get their US Citizenship back if they still had it at all? If Gaskell (son) and Miles Park Romney (father) who were both Mexican citizens how could they transfer US Citizenship to George Romney? Mitt Romney, however, may be a birthright baby because he fell under the 14th Amendment (I doubt they were under the jurisdiction of the US) but it is absolutely clear that Mitt Romney is NOT a Natural Born Citizen unless he can prove that George Romney gained citizenship from naturalization prior to Mitt's birth in 1947. I have found no records showing this to be the case."
Of course, anyone who has done a few hundred hours of reading research on this issue fully understands how the Fourteenth Amendment has been twisted to suit political agendas, i.e., the myth called "anchor babies."
The real legal question is this: Romney's father was born in Mexico. Under their Constitution, he was a Mexican citizen.
Article 30. Mexican nationality is acquired by birth or by naturalization:
A. Mexicans by birth are:
I. Those born in the territory of the Republic, regardless of the nationality of their parents:
II. Those born in a foreign country of Mexican parents; of a Mexican father and a foreign mother; or of a Mexican mother and an unknown father;
Was that still his status when Mitt was born?
Obama/Soetoro's father was a Kenyan national visiting the U.S. He was a British citizen. Under the British Nationality Act of 1948, Obama/Soetoro/Dunham was born with dual citizenship and forever ineligible to run for president.
There was a darn good reason why those who birthed this republic did not want foreign influence in the White House and why the words 'natural born citizen' were put into the Constitution.
Leo Donofrio has continued to post several excellent pieces of research on this as well as attorney Mario Apuzzo. Despite all the wailing, name calling and outright lying by Soetoro's co-conspirators in the media and the ignorant in Congress, nothing can change Obama/Soetoro's dual citizenship status. Here are two of Leo's most recent posts:
From Mario Apuzzo's web site: The Citizenship Status of Our 44 Presidents. At the bottom of that piece, see:
"Are people born to our military out of the country (such as McCain) considered to be born on US soil ?? I think Vattel thought so but we were not building an overseas empire at the time our constitution was written so we may not have considered this in our use of the term "natural born citizen". Atty Apuzzo please clarify for me - Phil Stone
"John Sidney McCain III was born on August 29, 1936 in Colon Hospital, Colon Panama, according to the Panama Canal Health Department not in the Panama Canal Zone, which is authenticated by Donald Lynn Lamb representing the Panama Railroad Company with authority over the Hospital in Colon; and according to the Hay-Banau-Varilla Treaty of November 18, 1903 that has 26 articles in which the two pertinent to the status of the city of Colon under that Treaty refer to the Convention for the Construction of a Ship Canal says that the Colon Panama, the birth city cited on McCain’s 1936 long form birth certificate where he was witnessed being born, and where his parents resided, Colon, Republic de Panama, is not part of the Canal Zone, quote: ARTICLE I The United States guarantees and will maintain the independence of the Republic of Panama. ARTICLE II The Republic of Panama grants to the United States in perpetuity the use, occupation and control of a zone of land and land under water for the construction maintenance, operation, sanitation and protection of said Canal of the width of ten miles extending to the distance of five miles on each side of the center line of the route of the Canal to be constructed; the said zone beginning in the Caribbean Sea three marine miles from mean low water mark and extending to and across the Isthmus of Panama into the Pacific ocean to a distance of three marine miles from mean low water mark WITH THE PROVISO THAT THE CITIES OF PANAMA AND COLON and the harbors adjacent to said cities, WHICH ARE INCLUDED WITHIN THE BOUNDARIES OF THE ZONE ABOVE DESCRIBED, SHALL NOT BE INCLUDED WITHIN THIS GRANT …” and therefore, McCain is not a natural-born Citizen as he was not born on U.S. Territory or the USA and is not eligible for the Presidency with the U.S. Constitution Article II Section One Clause 5"
We shall see what happens at the hearing in Georgia, Jan. 26, 2012. I pray Judge Malihi will be able to withstand the pressure because should he find for the plaintiffs, Barry Soetoro will not be on the ballot in 2012 and the whole world will know he isn't constitutionally eligible in 2012 and neither was he in 2008.
If you are unfamiliar with the ballot challenge in Georgia:
Attorney Van Irion on behalf of David Weldon Files Blistering Opposition to Defendant's(Obama) Motion to Dismiss in Georgia Ballot Access Challenge
The Motion to Dismiss filed by Obama/Soetoro's big money attorneys has been denied. A miracle in itself. The judge in the three cases moved (I am happy about) to grant the motion to sever the cases. Which means, Weldon will have his hearing on Jan. 26, 2012, presented by Van Irion.
Worldnetdaily has a new article on it doing a very good job in explaining, so I'll just give a link. It details the difference in the plaintiff's cases:
In late October 2011, Van Irion of the Liberty Legal Foundation also filed two lawsuits - against the DNC. Since the DNC is a private entity, there is no question of standing or immunity:
"On 10/25/11 Liberty Legal Foundation joined with Presidential candidate John Albert Dummett Jr. to file two simultaneous lawsuits against the Democratic Party. Both lawsuits request injunctions prohibiting the Party from certifying that Obama is Constitutionally qualified to run for the office of President in the 2012 election. Without such a certification from the Party, Obama will not appear on any ballot in the 2012 general election. (Tennessee TN Complaint) (Federal DNC Complaint).
"Texas Republican Congressman Ron Paul has cleared the air on where he stands on questions surrounding the “natural born” status of US President Barack Obama by saying he never paid it any mind, and that prospective presidential candidate Donald Trump is desperate for attention in bringing it up." Never paid the serious question of constitutional eligibility for a presidential candidate?
"On ABC’s “Good Morning America” this morning, U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann, tea partyist and possible GOP presidential rival to Donald Trump, was shown a certified copy of President Barack Obama’s birth certificate. She declared the matter “settled:” Well, fiddley dee!"
For those sincerely interested in learning more on the issue of natural born citizen because Obama/Soetoro just might have company regarding ballot qualification - Mitt Romney:

"Republican leaders and elected officials maintain a protective shield of silence and disinformation about Obama’s personal history, his Constitutionally illegal Presidency, his crimes, and his anti-American and reprehensible behavior, to hide their own complicity in the greatest fraud ever perpetrated on the American people. Winning the 2012 election and maintaining their personal power and privileges have become more important to the Republican leadership than the integrity of the Constitution and the political health of the nation."

Is Romney constitutionally eligible as a natural born citizen?
In April 2011, a couple of weeks before Obama/Soetoro released his official forged birth certificate, Mitt Romney declared Mr. Cool didn't need a birth certificate because his mother was born in America. Romney declared his complete ignorance on the issue - or - he was covering in the event his citizenship becomes an issue. This piece is full of such propaganda, one can only refer to it as bird cage liner: Romney to Trump: Obama Doesn't Need a Birth Certificate. Perhaps Mitt Romney is terrified his own citizenship eligibility will be looked at more closely and find himself the target of real constitutionalists who believe the supreme law of the land is more important than a candidate or party.
Do you think the Democrats will make this an issue? If they did, it would come right back to their candidate, Barack Obama aka Barry Soetoro aka Barry Dunham.
Will Republican presidential candidates (the ones not kissed and blessed by the global elites) makes this an issue? Where there's this much smoke, there's bound to be fire.
[Update: Jan. 7, 2012. A citizenship eligibility challenge has been formally filed here in Texas against Mitt Romney for ballot qualification. The individual, who I have exchanged email with is a long time Democratic voter. She also filed against Obama/Soeotro. There are four filings; for Romney scroll down about halfway.]
