BORN IN THE USA?
Courts can remove ineligible chief executive
Precedent cited in appeal of California challenge to president’s tenure

In the United States, courts can, in fact, remove a chief executive officer of a government if that officer is found to be ineligible, according to a court precedent cited in an appeal of a California lawsuit that challenges Barack Obama’s legitimacy in the White House.
A multitude of cases have been brought over the issue of Obama’s eligibility. Some are by critics who have doubts about whether he was born in Hawaii in 1961 as he has written, and others are from those who question whether the framers of the Constitution specifically excluded dual citizens – Obama’s father was a subject of the British crown at Obama’s birth – from being eligible for the presidency.
The disputes revolve around the Constitution’s demand that the president be a “natural born citizen.”
Now in an appeal of a state court case in California that named as a defendant California Secretary of State Debra Bowen, attorney Gary Kreep of the United States Justice Foundation is arguing that there already are two precedents that should be applied: one in a court case in which state officials removed from the ballot a nominee for president simply because he did not meet the Constitution’s eligibility requirements.

THE UNINTENDED CONSEQUENCES OF LIMITED OBJECTIVES
Throughout the Old Testament, God commands Israel to destroy its enemies that the nation might survive. Somewhere along the way, both Israel and America lost sight of that imperative.
Churchill, Stalin and Roosevelt agreed to divide Europe when WWII ended. General George Patton, driving hard for Berlin, was ordered to stop short at the Elbe. The seeds of limited objectives were sown, Communism enslaved all of Eastern Europe, and millions died or were sent to the gulag.
The policy gelled in Korea. President Truman ordered Douglas MacArthur, pursuing the retreating Communists northward, back to the 48th Parallel. The limited objective of “containing” Communism was codified. The people of North Korea were enslaved in unspeakable privation while South Korea thrived despite constant threat from the North.
Alluring half-measures and self-delusion about their effectiveness took over US strategic thinking. No offense in depth, certainly no destruction of the enemy’s ability to make war. Just push them back behind their own borders and tell them to stay there like good little enemies. Total victory became politically incorrect before the term even existed. With the zeal of a reformed smoker, limited objectives became America’s evangelical mission.
Israel in particular has been subjected to US tutelage in victory avoidance. While not quite believing that “the meek shall inherit the earth,” the innate Jewish hunger for peace—and Israel’s critical need for friends—predisposed them to submitting to American demands.
