Important Cable Releases by Wikileaks
Days 1 – 6
The Drip, Drip, Drip of Wikileaks
This is a composite of the most important information that was released by Wikileaks to various news outlets. This references Days 1 – 6 by the UK’s Guardian. Of the reported 250,000 downloaded cables, only a fraction have been released. These serve as insight into our government’s relationships with other countries. They also may permanently damage our image throughout the world, highlight our inability to maintain our secret documents, and otherwise inhibit a trusting relationship with many countries. This doesn’t cover the danger that those who divulged their opinions ” in secret” may now face in the countries they represent.

“Looking Back at History”
Natural Born Citizen Discussions in the Late 1800’s
Over 2 1/2 years ago when the subject of Obama’s eligibility or his ineligibility was brought to the forefront during the election cycle in 2008, I was amazed that he would qualify. I remembered what I was taught in civics classes in high school; the President and Vice President must be natural born citizens. Those are the only two jobs in the United States that have the requirement that those persons must be natural born citizens. According to the United States Constitution, Article II, Section 1, Clause 5, there are only three requirements that a person must meet to be eligible for the office of president:
- Be a “Natural Born Citizen of the United States”
- Be at least thirty-five years old;
- Have been a permanent resident in the United States for at least fourteen years.
To satisfy my recollection and to dispute what the Left was touting as the requirements by using the 14th amendment as Obama’s qualifier, and Black’s Law Dictionary’s limited definition of natural born citizen, I researched newspaper sources from the late 1800’s. Famous constitutionalists and scholars of their time answer questions that we have had about both Obama’s and John McCain’s eligibility to run as presidential candidates. The examples of certain situations about others can be applied to these two men who were nominated by their respective parties in 2008.
