The Project to Destroy
Marco Rubio Has Begun

PJ Media, by Bryan Preston

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 11/19/2012 5:18:32 PM

Recall that Todd Akin’s and Richard Mourdock’s series of unfortunate events began with needling, difficult questions that exposed their religious beliefs. Those questions, and the two men’s answers to them, wrecked their sure-fire candidacies and helped keep the Senate in the hands of the devious Harry Reid. I’m not defending them; they gave bad answers, and Akin in particular allowed his stubbornness to override good sense. Recall also that Democrats are almost never asked needling, difficult questions that expose their religious beliefs, even though if they are Christians as they claim to be, their answers ought to be identical

Comments:
I like Rubio. He will be ok with the stupid questions.

I am waiting for Marco Rubio to very seriously tell one of the media wonks....
"You know, Reporter, that without a doubt, the dumbest question I have ever heard and I have very young children in my house."

Rubio is NOT eligible to be president. He is not a ´natural born citizen´. He´s a ´native born citizen´.

Read the Constitution.

It isn´t Big Sugar who´s trying to destroy "Azucar" Rubio - - he´s their favorite sock puppet.

And all the other Big Lobbies really love him - - because what´s good for Big Sugar is good for them too.

Dear Quark. I have read the Constitution and the term "natural born citizen" is not defined anywhere in the document. Many legal scholars have defined "natural born citizen" to include anyone born on US soil. Please do some basic legal research before making categorical statements that cannot be backed up with legal points and authorities.

Here we go again.

It never ends.

You know this would go away if the responder observed -
"Scientists tell us the Earth is billions of years old. I do not dispute that.
And I cling to my faith, too."

Don´t say anything else. No need for more.
There is no basis by which to disprove the scientific claim.
So why bother to equivocate, to dodge?
Just get it over with.
Or you are toast.

Even Rush turned against Todd Akin in his home state of Missouri.
And the intelligentsia will never support a dunce.
Settle it and move on. It´s not debatable.

#6, a number of posters have provided all the links necessary to show #2s comment is correct. This was all done over the last few years because of Capt Zippy. The facts are available to those who do minimal due diligence. Either we insist on following the rule of the constitution - or we start following rule of men even more than we´ve been forced to; at that point all bets are off and the libtards won´t like the results.

The answer to that question is: "I have no idea how old the earth is. Scientists don´t agree on it either....how old do you think it is, A--hole Reporter?

The answer to the abortion question is this: "I am pro-life; I believe that life begins at conception. More than that I will not answer because in this year of 2016, it is settled law and legal for any woman who wants one. Next Question?" AND stop right there.

Why these conservative candidates allow themselves to be drawn into long philosophical discussions on abortion, I do not understand.

#2 and #8. I firmly agree that we should absolutely follow the Constitution. So show me in the Constitution where "natural born citizen" is defined. I can´t find it and neither can you because it´s not there. Therefore, the phrase is unfortunately still open to legal interpretation. As recently as 2009 the Congressional Research Service in an opinion submitted to Congress wrote "...it appears that the most logical inferences would indicate that the phrase "natural born Citizen" would mean a person who is entitled to U.S. citizenship "at birth" or "by birth". So please don´t try to dismiss the issue as settled, because legally it most certainly is not.

#15. You are missing the point. Your quote is quite correct; however, the phrase"natural born Citizen" is cited but never DEFINED in the Constitution - which is the whole point of this discussion.

Thank you #15. I am so weary of people who don´t understand that the Presidency and only the Presidency requires a natural born citizen..native born will not suffice.
A child born to parents of other citizenship MAY have dual citizenship, and the Founding Fathers did not want the danger of a President with dual allegiance.
Of course, precedence has been set, with the son of an African sitting in the WH right now.

The concept of ´natural born citizen´ is defined clearly by Vattel and well understood by those who wrote and signed the Constitution. The purpose for the ´natural born´ appellation - which is applied only to the office of President - was to prevent foreign born parents, with loyalties that might lie elsewhere than with the U.S., from bearing and raising a child here who might become President and turn our nation over to those foreign loyalties. It makes a lot of sense.

The term has been explained by Congress:

´´every human being born within the jurisdiction of the United States of parents not owing allegiance to any foreign sovereignty is, in the language of your Constitution itself, a natural born citizen.´´

~ Rep. John A. Bingham ~ (Cong. Globe, 39th, 1st Sess., 1291 (1866))


And was not redefined by the fourteenth amendment. It has been redefined more recently in the same way that many other aspects of the Constitution have been ´adapted´ or ´evolved´.

Thank you, ##6, 15, and 18 for your substantive comments. If Congressman Bingham´s interpretation in 1866 is the ace in the hole for the more restrictive definition, though, that doesn´t seem like much of a leg to stand on, especially in light of the present president´s precedent.

However, Ted in Mich. - I too am appalled by his taste in rappers. So - calling it a draw for now.

The previous posters have it all wrong. For the U.S. Supreme Court, the establishment and the liberal media, it is obvious that if it benefits the long march to socialist utopia, strict construction of the constitution is the way to go. Forget about a presidential run, Rubio, the powers that be will convince the freeloaders that tend to vote for exotic freaks like obama that you are foreign and evil incarnate if you ever attempt to run for president.

I have read the Constitution and it says nothing about needing to have parents who are citizens. A US birth certificate is all that is needed to get a passport, to vote, to get a social security number, to live and work here. Rubio is natural born under the clear language of the Constituion. Those who say otherwise are reading in words that are not there.

In these selfie times when freedom, joy and posterity are just a head-tilt, grin and finger-click away, it is only fitting that the United States of America would have as commander-in-chief the undisputed King of Selfies.

Good news: thanks to a ruling by the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals Monday, the "most transparent administration in history" is going to have to tell American citizens when it believes it´s legally entitled to kill them. The lawsuit arose out of Freedom of Information Act requests by two New York Times reporters for Office of Legal Counsel memoranda exploring the circumstances under which it would be legal for U.S. personnel to target American citizens. The administration stonewalled, asserting that "the very fact of the existence or nonexistence of such documents is itself classified," and a federal district judge

How Lindsey Graham

SUMMERVILLE, S.C. — Sen. Lindsey Graham recognized the threat years before it had a chance to form — and knew immediately what he had to do. After the tea party wave in the 2010 election, right-wing groups were itching to get one of South Carolina’s newly elected conservative congressmen to challenge Graham, the blunt-spoken, deal-making congressional veteran of two decades. Rep. Mick Mulvaney, a favorite of the grass roots, was high on their list. So when Graham got wind in 2012 that Mulvaney wanted a seat on the House Financial Services Committee, he quietly lobbied his longtime friend, Speaker John Boehner, to

If you have student loans, chances are you wish there was a way to make them disappear. And in a way, there is: The federal government now offers three repayment plans that lower monthly payments and will—eventually—forgive remaining debt. A separate plan forgives loans for people who take certain public-service jobs. Some of these options, however, are so new that nobody knows how well they´ll serve borrowers. Even when it comes to well-established repayment plans, many students don´t truly understand their options. And some analysts say that policy adjustments are needed to ensure that students don´t get too comfortable taking on

The Democratic Party’s obsession with income inequality and “the one percent” is factually misguided, science has found. Over the weekend, leading academic professor Mark R. Rank discussed the findings of a recent scientific study on income inequality in the New York Times. It turns out that, according to scientific data, the Left’s horror stories about a rigid class structure in the United States fueled by nefarious, wealth-hoarding one-percenters is false. “The picture drawn of the 1 percent has been that of a static population, just as the 99 percent is often portrayed as unchanging,” Rank writes. “There is a line drawn between

Raced-Based Preferences Forever

You can often tell when advocates of one side in an argument fear they will ultimately lose. They change their branding. A few years ago, warnings about “global warming” were replaced with scare stories about “climate change.” One reason? The Earth had stopped appreciably warming in the late 1990s, making the change a PR necessity. Supporters of affirmative action are now signaling similar weakness. What was called “racial quotas” in the 1970s and has been referred to as “affirmative action” since the 1990s is giving way to a new term: “race-sensitive admission policies.” The language shift is telling — race-based preferences

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning
