HATCH, BUSH, SHRIVER & ARNOLD GAVE THE OPENING PUNTS
by John Charlton
(Nov. 6, 2009) — The conspiracy to put a candidate in the White House who had foreign connections and allegiances from birth began long before the 2008 Election cycle. But talk was purposefully intensified after the 2004 elections.
Orin Hatch had introduced a proposed Amendment to the U.S. Constitution in July of 2003; and former President Bush had indicated Arnold Schwarzenegger’s presidential potential in late Nov. 2004, according to Alex Jones:
On Monday, the 29 th of November, former President H. W. Bush gave Arnold Schwarzenegger the George Bush Award at his Presidential library and told the crowd, “in regard to him ever being president of the United States , my advice to you Aggies and to any of those doubters, don’t bet against Arnold Schwarzenegger.” Arnold responded by saying that he would like to see the Constitution amended so he could shoot for the top.
It must be remembered that Schwarzenegger’s wife, Maria Shriver is a Kennedy family member; and the late Ted Kennedy was the power behind Obama’s rise to prominence. Arnold appeared to be the trial balloon in a game played by both parties to subborn the U.S.A. to foreign interests.
But what is most revealing is what leading Main Stream Media outlets where putting out in 2004 against tampering with the requirements of office for the U.S. President.
Martin Kasindorf of USA Today, for example, wrote these words, which seem something more akin to Mario Apuzzo’s or Charles Kerchner’s arguments in their suit against Obama and Congress, that those of a Ted Turner publication:
The barrier to foreign-born citizens becoming president stems from fears that the Founding Fathers had during the Constitutional Convention of 1787. They were concerned that subversive enemies could force the fledgling republic back to foreign monarchical rule. Delegates didn’t want the United States to suffer the same fate as Poland, which in 1772 had been partitioned among Austria, Prussia and Russia after agents of those countries bribed Polish nobles to elect a disloyal king.
Yet politicians of both parties were in favor of altering the Constitution, even back then, according to Kasindorf:
The restriction on the foreign-born “has become an anachronism that is decidedly un-American,” Hatch said during the hearing in October. Akhil Amar, a professor of constitutional law at Yale Law School, agrees: “Today, to worry about foreign dukes and earls, it’s really a little paranoid.”
But Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., a Judiciary committee member, sees merit in the restriction. “I don’t think it is unfair to say the president of the United States should be a native-born citizen,” she said at the hearing. “Your allegiance is driven by your birth.”
And some were even using illogical argument to push the change:
“Some people are talking as if a Manchurian Candidate could emerge and take over,” says Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, R-Calif., referring to the Richard Condon novel and the two movies it inspired, in which communists brainwash an American to assassinate a presidential candidate.
Rohrabacher has introduced a House resolution that mirrors Hatch’s proposal in the Senate. “Remember, the Manchurian Candidate was an American,” Rohrabacher tells those who envision a foreign-born mole groomed for U.S. leadership.
Did Rohrabacher know something then, that we know now? A Manchurian Candidate is the title of a famous film, in which an American citizen is groomed by the Communists to take over America. Obama who is not a natural born citizen, according to his own concession and the facts he declares about his origins, is a known adherent of Marxism and has put numerous Marxists in post of power in his regime. Rohrabacher was certainly prophetic.
And even the Heritage Foundation spoke openly about the problems of a Schwarzenegger run:
He has a point. Matthew Spalding, director of the Center for American Studies at the conservative-oriented Heritage Foundation, says the amendment’s prospects would “nosedive” if it were perceived to be designed to land Schwarzenegger in the Oval Office. “We don’t amend the Constitution to advance someone’s political career,” Spalding says.
Schwarzenegger faces an additional handicap, Spalding says: “You can’t have a United States president who is a dual citizen.”
But who talks about Obama’s British, Kenyan, and Indonesian citizenships today in the halls of power?
Kasindorf’s article played the same game with the law, however, that Obama’s supporter did, interpreting natural born citizenship as if it were merely native born citizenship. The former requires 2 citizen parents and birth on U.S. soil; the later only birth on U.S. soil.
