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.

Advice to Democrats: Don´t say ´recovery´
Associated Press, by David Espo    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/18/2014 10:15:20 AM     Post Reply
WASHINGTON - Election-year memo to Democratic candidates: Don´t talk about the economic recovery. It´s a political loser. So say Democratic strategists in a blunt declaration that such talk skips over "how much trouble people are in, and doesn´t convince them that policymakers really understand or are even focusing on the problems they continue to face." In addition, Stan Greenberg, James Carville and others wrote that in head-to-head polling tests the mere mention of the word "recovery" is trumped by a Republican assertion that the Obama administration has had six years to get the economy moving and its policies haven´t worked. Coincidentally or not,

President Obama has warned that Iran is not open for business, even as the United States has loosened some of its punishing economic sanctions as part of an interim nuclear pact. Yet, on Tuesday morning, Iran had an unlikely visitor: a plane, owned by the Bank of Utah, a community bank in Ogden that has 13 branches throughout the state. Bearing a small American flag on its tail, the aircraft was parked in a highly visible section of Mehrabad Airport in Tehran. But from there, the story surrounding the plane, and why it was in Iran — where all but a few

Saying they can no longer ignore the rising prices of health care, some of the most influential medical groups in the nation are recommending that doctors weigh the costs, not just the effectiveness of treatments, as they make decisions about patient care. The shift, little noticed outside the medical establishment but already controversial inside it, suggests that doctors are starting to redefine their roles, from being concerned exclusively about individual patients to exerting influence on how health care dollars are spent. “We understand that we doctors should be and are stewards of the larger society as well as of the patient in

Hillary Clinton may end up deciding she wants to spend the 935 days until election 2016 making corporate speeches and spoiling her grandchild. Recent events have exposed weaknesses in Clinton’s supposedly impregnable armor, gaps through which a Democratic or Republican challenger could damage, perhaps even defeat her. The bad headlines to which she has been subjected are enough to make anyone—anyone who isn’t a Clinton—think twice about running for president. Look at the polls. This week’s Fox News poll has Clinton’s favorable rating at its lowest point in six years. She is at 49 percent favorable, 45 percent unfavorable—similar to her

President Barack Obama used his Thursday press conference to diagnose Republicans as fear-mongering, spiteful, obstinate, petulant and obstructive, as he again declared mission-accomplished in his effort to put the nation’s health-care under government control. “I recognize that their party is going through the stages of grief — anger and denial and all that stuff — and we’re not at acceptance yet,” Obama told reporters, where he announced that his Obamacare network had claimed 8 million subscribers. Obama coupled his passive-voice diatribe with his more-in-sorrow-than-anger promise that he “would much prefer a constructive conversation with the Republicans about how do we get some

The captain of a ferry that sank off the coast of South Korea Wednesday, leaving nearly 300 people missing, is under investigation as a possible criminal and was one of the first people to escape the doomed vessel, Coast Guard officials said. Lee Joon-seok, 69, left the ferry on a lifeboat 32 minutes after reporting an accident, officials said. The captain appeared on Korean television today, his face covered by a gray hoodie. “I am really sorry and deeply ashamed,” he said, as he was being questioned at the Mokpo Coast Guard Office. It´s unclear which of his actions could be considered criminal.

Soon after the tea party era began in Congress in 2011, President Obama and House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan each released their budgets, proposing how much the government should tax and spend over the rest of the decade. Three years into that budget showdown, Mr. Ryan and his Republican colleagues are winning. Government spending has slowed, and Mr. Obama’s plans for higher taxes and higher spending have fallen by the wayside. “The discretionary spending has in fact been driven by Republicans post-2010 clamping down,” said Douglas Holtz-Eakin, a former director of the Congressional Budget Office who is now president of the

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'
