14th Amendment Citizenship: Citizen or citizen? Prior to the alleged ratification of the 14th Amendment, there was no legal definition of a "citizen of the United States", as everyone had primary citizenship in one of the several states. The Constitution referred to the sovereign state citizen, and no one else. Those who went to Washington, DC or outside the several states were commonly called "citizens of the United States." In the Constitution for the United States, the term was used to identify state citizens who were eligible under the suffrage laws to hold office, and they were required under the Constitution to have primary allegiance to one of the several states. Since that term was not specifically defined in the US Constitution, Congress in 1868 took advantage of this term and utilized it in the so-called 14th Amendment to describe a NEW type of "citizen" whose primary allegiance was to the federal government, ie Washington, DC and not to one of the several states of the union. Thus, using the term as used in the US Constitution to mislead and confuse the people as to the true intent and meaning of the Constitution. Many people have mistaken the citizen as denominated in the 14th Amendment to mean the same one in the original constitution, this is in error. The "citizen of the united states" as used in the constitution is not the same as the citizen of the United States used after the 14th Amendment. So all the elected officials are NOT sitting in the office constitutionally, they are merely impostors created ...

Hijacking Catastrophe: Politics of Citizenship (10 of 10) "By helping us understand how fear is being actively cultivated and manipulated by the current administration, Hijacking Catastrophe stands to become an explosive and empowering information weapon in this decisive year in US history." Naomi Klein | Author, No Logo "The Media Education Foundation has been carrying out vitally important work on major issues of the day, in a highly meritorious effort to raise public awareness and understanding, work that is particularly crucial in advance of the coming election, which may well cast a long shadow over the country's future." Noam Chomsky | Professor of Linguistics, MIT "The next Presidential election will be a watershed mark in our history and the urgency of producing and distributing materials that show exactly what is at stake has never been higher. Hijacking Catastrophe will be a vital tool in the campaign to rescue American democracy from its internal enemies. It will enrage and empower as it enlightens and explains." Robert McChesney | Author, Rich Media, Poor Democracy �What it really comes down to is this Are the American voters going to sit still for this? Are we going to treat our democracy like some sort of spectator sport, like watching the Super Bowl, or are we going to ask a little more of ourselves this time? Are we going to explore the Bush Administration�s claims? Are we going to look at the details of what this administration has actually done?� William Hartung | Senior Fellow ...

Wyss' Pieces: Citizenship Test This is the latest installment of "Wyss' Pieces" featured on my campus television show "Concordia Spotlight." In this episode, I wanted to test Concordia students about basic US History. I took all the questions from the United States Citizenship Test (the test for those who want to become American citizens). Again, this is somewhere in between "Are you *** than a 5th Grader" and Jay Leno's "Jaywalking." The results are perhaps even more stunning than on the previous episode! This video was created for Concordia University - St. Paul and is now being broadcast on their campus channel, CTP 6. Enjoy! © Andy Wyss Sample Questions: How many original colonies are there? Who was the first president of the United States? When was the Declaration of Independence signed? Who did the United States fight in WWII? What was the name of the ship that the pilgrims came to America on?

Middle East 2007 - Defining Global Citizenship: From Philanthropy to Activism 19.05.2007 Defining Global Citizenship From Philanthropy to Activism Contributing to the common good takes many forms, from individual acts of philanthropy to ongoing patterns of social activism. 1) How can individual philanthropists make the best use of their resources? What successful frameworks exist inside and outside the region? 2) Do companies have a responsibility to the wider community, or should they simply contribute funds to "specialist" institutions? 3) What can ordinary members of society do to become active global citizens? How can such activism be encouraged?

Citizenship Issue on MSNBC Peter Williams wrote a misleading article on MSNBC. Hawaii Revised Statute 338-17.8 allows registration of birth in Hawaii for a child that was born outside of Hawaii to parents who, for a year preceding the childs birth, claimed Hawaii as their place of residence. The parents would be issued a Certification of Live Birth. This is not proof of where the child was born. It only proves that the parents claimed Hawaii as their main place of residence for the prior year. British Nationality Act of 1948 (Part II, Section 5): Subject to the provisions of this section, a person born after the commencement of this Act shall be a citizen of the United Kingdom and Colonies by descent if his father is a citizen of the United Kingdom and Colonies at the time of the birth. A natural born citizen, would not be a citizen of any other nation than the United States. That is what "natural born" means. By nature, the child, would be only a US citizen, because both of his parents were US citizens, and NO OTHER NATION, can by law claim him to be under their jurisdiction, at the moment of his birth. That was not the case with Obama. He was, by law, a Citizen of the United Kingdom, the moment he was born, and then, by law, he became a citizen of Kenya on Dec. 12, 1963. For a more detailed explaination of natural born citizen, see my other related video here: For those interested in a more detailed explaination of the term "natural born citizen", a new ...
