Knowledge Creates Power
The title of this article is
correct. After having completed a more thorough review of the relevant
US Supreme Court cases discussing the Constitution’s natural-born
citizen clause, I have discovered precedent which states that a
natural-born citizen is a person born in the jurisdiction of the US to
parents who are citizens. Read that again. I said precedent,
not dicta. The precedent holds that Obama is not
eligible to be President of the United States.
Up until the publication of this report today, all discussion of the
natural-born citizen issue (from both sides of the argument) agreed there had
never been a precedent established by the US Supreme Court, and that the various
cases which mentioned the clause did so in “dicta”.
Dicta are authoritative
statements made by a court which are not binding legal precedent.
