On the Birthers and their Fruitless Efforts to Get Rid of Obama on a Technicality
Or, Wasting my Time trying to convince the Birthers that they are Wasting their Time.....Or, How to Piss Everyone Off

The day President Obama was voted president by the electors, and again when Chief Justice Roberts swore him in, he became legally the president no matter where he was born, which became a moot point if it ever was a point at all. Obama is President and That is the "supreme Law of the Land" because of the actions of the Electors of the Electoral College and Chief Justice Roberts, whether anyone thinks it is Constitutional or Not.

The Constitution, in Article VI, states: 

 This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in Pursuance thereof; and all Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the Authority of the United States, shall be the supreme Law of the Land; and the Judges in every State shall be bound thereby, any Thing in the Constitution or Laws of any state to the Contrary notwithstanding.

This convoluted sentence which is Article VI in its entirety, dictates that just about anything the government does is the "supreme Law of the Land" "any Thing in the Constitution or Laws of any State to the Contrary notwithstanding." Which means that some congressman's pork spending bill when passed has equal gravity as the Constitution itself! Every Executive Order is the Supreme Law of the Land. Every rule and regulation written by bureaucrats as the result of any law becomes the Supreme Law of the Land. And all of that legal verbiage is automatically Constitutional.

Aside:  [I know there are those who will say that the above quote refers to the "Constitution" of "any State" and not the glorious and holy federal Constitution. That argument is a red herring because it misses the point. All laws are automatically considered Constitutional.  This Section is ambiguous for a reason. The men who wrote this document were intelligent and skilled with language to a degree beyond most of us who are the products of what passes for education in our era.  They knew laws would be passed in Congress that would fail to be in compliance of the Constitution. That is exactly what they wanted or they would have not been ambiguous about "Constitution" and simply would have written "Constitutions or Laws of any States to the contrary notwithstanding". Furthermore, laws are to be merely "in Pursuance" of the Constitution.   Something which pursues something is not required to catch it.  And the fact remains that it has been long accepted that any cockamamie law passed or executive order or federal rule or act of the federal corporation  becomes indeed "the supreme Law of the Land." until ruled otherwise by the Supreme Court should their Holynesses in Black deign to review it.  Our Constitution, in effect, is thousands of volumes long.   No human being can begin to understand it. It is a playground for lawyers bent on mischief.

The Constitution is a fraud with several technical outs that make the Bill of Rights a joke. The technicalities favor the government. This sacred document says a lot of pretty things in the Bill of Rights but it allows the government to go its sleazy way "notwithstanding." 

Not only that, Dear Birthers,  the Constitution never defines "natural born Citizen" and there are many who define that holy state as falling on the child of a citizen of the United States notwithstanding (to use a constitutional term)  that child's place of birth. The argument against Obama essentially rests on English common law that reckons "natural born Citizen" on the father's status (not American, in Obama's case) rather than either parent or both parents or the mother's status (undeniably American). This is why Birthers never so much as gave a thought to the fact that John McCain was born in the Canal Zone, which was not and is not part of the United States, since his father was a Citizen of the good old USA, and an Admiral too, as opposed to an African leftist. So all this energy spent on proving that Obama isn't a natural born Citizen is a royal waste of time based on a misunderstanding of the Constitution (perhaps thinking it is some kind of an unerring holy document that represents a kind of higher morality) and an archaic sexist interpretation of "natural born Citizen." 

It is an amusing spectacle every time some Birthers go to court trying to get Obama off state ballots, but it is also getting boring. They have no standing and no legal grounds to do this. 

The Constitution, in effect, allows anything to the government! This is why the Supreme Court can rule any damn nonsense they want (Bush v. Gore, corporations are people too) and see any damn thing in the Constitution that comes into their heads. Also, you may not know that the Constitution gives Congress the power to pass laws that are exceptions to review by the court, simply by indicating so on the law. That means Congress could pass a law doing anything in the world (like make ID chips mandatory, make dogs citizens, declare themselves royalty, anything!), tag it an exception to review by the Supreme Court  and it would be legal. (Read this from our noble US Constitution, Article III, Section 2, paragraph 2 very closely if you don't believe me: "In all cases affecting ambassadors, other public ministers and consuls, and those in which a state shall be party, the Supreme Court shall have original jurisdiction. In all the other cases before mentioned, the Supreme Court shall have appellate jurisdiction, both as to law and fact, with such exceptions, and under such regulations as the Congress shall make.") Isn't that wonderful? The Court can see anything in the Constitution it pleases and the Congress can hoist a finger to the Court whenever they want. So now you know that the problem is not with the Congress, the President, or the Court. The problem is inherent in the Constitution itself. How do you like this sacred silly putty document now?

Anyone with an interest in the fraudulent nature of our Constitution should get a copy of Ferdinand Lundberg's great book, "Cracks in the Constitution."  This book is out of print but can be found used at Amazon  for reasonable money. I bought a copy last year for a couple of bucks but I see it is now selling for $8.76.Word must be getting out. Perhaps my discussion with Vyz had something to do with that.
Listen to my discussion with Vyzygoth on these matters while you can.
