The Importance of Birthright Citizenship

News headlines are bringing forth not only bad news, they are exposing the Obama administration again for its lack of transparency — which was the bedrock of his early Presidency.  Seems President Obama only confirms daily what we thought all along — he cannot be trusted.

President Obama has said he is “hopeful” that the flood of immigrants coming in the country will “drown conservatism.” And I assume he doesn’t mind if it drowns the American citizen as well.

A bit further under the radar, we find that rather than allowing the usual one million immigrants per year to flow across our borders and into the country, President Obama has allowed that number to skyrocket to almost 6 million. That’s two new mouths to feed for every new job created.

Then comes the news that President Obama’s administrative “amnesty” will allow for illegals to not only receive tax refunds for years they never paid taxes (if they file tax forms for those years), but will also allow them via legal identification cards, such as drivers licenses, to become added to voter rolls, while waiting for their legalization applications to be processed. Rumor has it they will receive Social Security cards as well and get the same retirement benefits as you and me.

This is all an outrage, and, more than an outrage, it is anti-American. Those that have been calling for President Obama’s impeachment have been exactly right.  He needs to go! He is “officially” our first anti-American President.

Please call Washington DC 866-220-0044 and tell your Representative to support H.R. 140 (Rep. Steve King of Iowa) to define citizenship. This will help stem the tide that has been building for nearly 50 years.

american-babyThe United States of America desperately needs legislation to define more clearly not only citizenship, but more importantly, what “natural born” citizenship is and why it is different.  This clarification is necessary for the benefit of both the American people and those emigrating here.

Citizenship is stripped of all its meaning if just anyone receives it by way of being born here. What is citizenship if whether born of citizen parents, a foreigner or an illegal alien all are equally proclaimed to be a citizen.

America’s national survival demands this definitional clarification.  It also will allow us to know exactly where the loyalties lie of our elected representatives.

The term “natural born” stems from the idea that a national leader, the President of the United States must never have dual loyalties or anything other than a singular American focus when it comes to national and international affairs.  So he or she must come from two parents who were both citizens at their birth.  So one cannot be a mere citizen — or a naturalized citizen and ever hold the highest office in the land.  This position of royalty is held only for those who are full blooded American of progeny.

If only from the stand point of surviving culturally and as a civilization, this issue must be corrected and clarified so that both the American and the immigrant understands it without opinion.

Today we have conflict between history and modernity, between the congressional record and the U.S. civil code.

There are those who would and are using American law and American amnesia against us in this civilizational war.  A religious and cultural war that we are simply not engage in at any political level, and thus are not defending against.  How can you win a war you don’t even admit is being waged? How can you win a war you are not willing to engage in?

Today We have a thriving foreign industry called birth tourism.  Thousands of foreign women, mainly from Asia, come to the United States near the end of their pregnancies, and stay in “birth motels” until they give birth to their little U.S. citizen.  They then take their band new (U.S. citizen) child home, with all privileges of you and I.

anchor-babyIllegals and foreign born children cost the U.S. taxpayers billions of dollars each year. With the new “amnesty” it is only going to get more costly.  And still few seem to care.

These anchor babies then can return at any time in their life with the same ease and comfort as any American who has poured a lifetime of blood, sweat, tears, labor and patriotism into the country they proudly call home.  The newbie may come with not only dual-loyalties, but with bad intentions.  And what, pray tell, do we think he’ll do if elected to office or is hired to work at a major defense contractor or forbid it, positions within the government itself.  Many are already there!

The anchor baby problem is huge – hundreds of thousands turn voting age every voting cycle – and they vote liberal, they vote for whomever will give them the most free stuff.  “Free stuff” being the fruits of the middle class taxpayers wallet.  This is an injustice of leviathan proportions.

Call Washington DC 866-220-0044 demand your Representative support H.R.140 to define citizenship.

The 14 Amendment to the Constitution was passed in 1866 (the 39th Congress) to ensure citizenship for freed slaves and their progeny – it was never meant to benefit foreigners or those who sneak across our border to simply to produce U.S. citizens by giving physical birth on our soil, rather than theirs.

Citizenship is to animals like nationalism is to species. Just as Dogs can’t give birth to cats, Canadians cannot give birth to Americans and so on.

When you get right down to it — this is pretty simple stuff, so simple in fact that even I can understand it.

There is also a companion bill in the Senate – S.45 by Sen. David Vitter (R-LA). Call or email your Senators and demand they support S.45 and stand with Senator Vitter.

PLEASE — Save our U.S. sovereignty! Contact both your two Senators and demand they support S.45.  Contact every Representative in your state and tell them to support H.R.140.

Our nation’s future depends on it.
