CDR Kerchner has a new Internet Article up where we get to watch and listen to Rudy Davis , aka lonestar1776, tutor us on the meaning of natural born citizenship. Here is the link to Kerchner’s blog:
Some of you may recognize Rudy as World Net Daily’s Number 1 Fan, from a previous article here where Rudy volunteered to execute Obama, should he ever be arrested, tried, and found guilty of whatever. Rudy may have just been over-excited by the news that day, what with Sheriff Joe Arpaio and the Cold Case Posse having reported that the online image of Obama’s long form birth certificate was a forgery. Oh, and the circular postal dating stamp was missing a few digits. Them’s purty serious crimes in these here United States!
Now, here is Rudy’s youtube lecture.
Rudy reads from a number of textbooks. His first mistake is to ASSUME that natural born citizen means two citizen parents because Article 2, Section 1 Clause 5 uses two different terms – natural born citizen and citizen at the time of the founding. Then, every time he encounters the words natural born citizen it’s “AHA!!! – See I told you so!!! It takes two citizen parents!!!”
We get to go through several textbooks and then at the 6:00 minute mark, we get the first ricochet. The textbook says children born abroad of citizen parents might be natural born. This distinction escapes our Rudy. Obama was born INSIDE the country.
At around the 8:00 – 8:30 minute mark Rudy plugs himself again, with another jus sanguinis example for children born abroad. Rudy goes on to say Obama isn’t natural born because his father was Kenyan. BUT Rudy, Obama was NOT born abroad. Apparently, our boy has a high tolerance for pain, because around the 11:05 minute mark, Rudy pops another cap into himself, this one right in the old ticker.
This time, the textbook is in error because it says the President must be U.S. born, not natural born in the way Rudy thinks the term means. Yes. Rudy actually reads the words U.S. BORN and figures out the book must be wrong, because it sure can’t be him. But he does try to cover this little bo-bo by telling us about how George Washington checked out Vattel’s Law of Nations, and it is now several hundred years overdue.
Call me soft-hearted, but I don’t get as mad at somebody like Rudy being flat out wrong, as I do at the Jerome Corsi, Joseph Farah, Mario Apuzzo, CDR Kerchner, and Leo Donofrio type Birthers. While those people have gone to college, and have the benefits of higher education, I suspect poor old Rudy has got his education behind the wheel of a tractor and loading bales of hay in the hot sun. Heck, he is out buying civics and history textbooks at the thrift store to try to understand this stuff.
Curses to all the no-good lousy educated bastards who have lead him on and lied to him!!!
Note 1. The Images are from the March 1952 issue of Life Magazine, Rooty Toot Toot, a re-telling of the Frankie and Johnny story. The art is very retro and the whole story may be found here:
Luckily, youtube has the original animated short, from 1951:
