Taking Back Constitution Piece By Piece

by Frank Miele - August 29th, 2010 - Daily Inter Lake

History is plain. So are the words in the 14th Amendment. But both are now being ignored thanks to a feckless adherence to judicial precedent no matter how wrong-headed the decision.

We are told that every child born in the United States has the right to claim citizenship in our country based on the wording of this amendment, but for goodness’ sake, before we sell our birthright for a mess of pottage, shouldn’t someone actually read the amendment?

It PLAINLY says that there are TWO elements which are BOTH necessary to qualify for citizenship. One is that you must be “born or naturalized in the United States.” The meaning of that is more or less self-evident. The meaning of the second element — that a potential citizen must be “subject to the jurisdiction” of the United States — has been conveniently forgotten or obfuscated. More invisible ink?

Anyone who bothers to spend half an hour researching the history of this amendment will find ample proof that the phrase is intended to exclude the children of foreign nationals from acquiring citizenship just due to the accident of being born in the United States. To claim otherwise requires a willful ignorance so profound as to be frightening.

Frightening. That is the perfect word. Frightening.

Proponents of this progressive abuse of our Constitution are frightening. By twisting the clear meaning of words to invent a new right to citizenship that didn't exist under the amendment and that was in clear violation of the intention of the people who passed it shows the amazing arrogance of our judges. It also shows their total contempt for the people and the nation they have taken an oath to serve.

This single judicial abuse is the foundation for my belief that until we establish the right to mass impeachment and conviction of judges, America will never regain its freedom.
