But it getsBETTER yet!Missouri Senator Claire McCaskill offered that bill and it was co-sponsored by Obama and Hillary.But McCaskill wasn’t doing this for McCain at all! McCaskill was the lead campaign head forObama in Missouri per the Missouri Governor! What’s more, she was behind the threats with theprosecutor’s office and the Obama camp in Missouri, to sue and criminalize ANYONE who hadanything bad to say about Obama. Remember that? Connect the dots!It was McCaskill and others in the Senate, including Chairman Patrick J. Leahy who already hadlawyers submit a brief-like proposal to the Senate, which included arguments for United States vs.Wong Kim Ark. long before anyone realized what was going on.Furthermore, the MSM finally realized this past week that they screwed up and hadn’t investigatedas much as should have since the Blagojevich scandal hit and they admitted as much.The video of the MSM is here:http://grou.ps/zapem/home The proof of the Senate manipulating the “natural born citizen” clause is here:http://grou.ps/zapem/wiki/23460 (which now includes an update; an open letter to Stephen Pidgeon, Esq. since I didn’t know if Leowould be back.)Contained in those links is also the Missouri Governor’s warning of the situation and naming Sen.Claire McCaskill and you can also view it direct from here:http://governor.mo.gov/cgi-bin/coranto/viewnews.cgi?id=EkkkVFulkpOzXqGMaj This is no joke. The Senate KNEW exactly what was going on and expected someone to bring upthis matter and they tried like hell to shut them up and they still are.If the MSM would grow a pair and at least report this and start demanding answers, maybe we couldget to the bottom of it, because the proof is all there. This should be a criminal matter because it’s a

deliberate coverup at this point with actions taken to further stifle anyone from speaking about it indirect violation of the 1st Amendment.So, the sequence of events as Obama continued to gain traction in the Democratic primaries with the other front-runner, Clinton, seems to be this:1. DNC fires a warning shot over the bow of McCain's ship about his eligibility issues, sometime around February,and things unfold during the campaign itself which "develop" the issue but which aren't very well tracked byMSM. But the issue was in fact an old one, and you can trace it all the way back to 1998 ...http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/politics/campaigns/junkie/archive/junkie070998.htm

Citizen McCain's Panama Problem?
 By Ken RudinSpecial to washingtonpost.com
Thursday, July 9, 1998Question:
I would like to see Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) as a presidential candidate, but I heardthat he was born in the Panama Canal Zone. The Constitution requires that a president be a "naturalborn" citizen of the United States. Is Sen. McCain barred from the presidency? – Steven R. Pruett,Falls Church, Va.
Answer:
John McCain has more pressing worries than eligibility on the road to the Republicanpresidential nomination in 2000. After his lead role in pushing campaign-finance and tobaccolegislation, both anathema to the Senate GOP leadership, the Arizona senator may have to spend alot of time trying to prove his party credentials before he ever gets to Iowa or New Hampshire. But ishe constitutionally qualified to become president? McCain was indeed born in the Canal Zone, andArticle II of the Constitution plainly states that "no person except a natural born Citizen... shall beeligible to the Office of President." Some might define the term "natural-born citizen" as one whowas born on United States soil. But the First Congress, on
March 26, 1790
, approved an act thatdeclared, "The children of citizens of the United States that may be born beyond sea, or outside thelimits of the United States, shall be considered as natural-born citizens of the United States." Thatwould seem to include McCain, whose parents were both citizens and whose father was a Navyofficer stationed at the U.S. naval base in Panama at the time of John's birth in 1936. "He meets therequirement of U.S. citizenship in order to be eligible for president," said McCain spokespersonNancy Ives. (For the record, McCain says the only thing on his plate is his bid for a third Senate termin November, though he is seen as a shoo-in.)The citizenship question has come up in past presidential campaigns. George Romney, the lateMichigan governor and a leading aspirant for the 1968 Republican presidential nomination, was bornin Chihuahua, Mexico. His support nose-dived following his September 1967 statement that he was"brainwashed" by the U.S. military during a visit to Vietnam.But during the period when he was still being touted as the only Republican who could defeatPresident Lyndon Johnson, Romney's opponents often raised the issue of his eligibility. WilliamLoeb, the late publisher of the Manchester Union Leader who made his conservative views wellknown to New Hampshire primary voters, simply dismissed Romney as
"Chihuahua George."
ButRomney was eligible. Romney’s grandfather emigrated to Mexico in 1886 with his three wives andchildren after Congress outlawed polygamy. Romney and his parents, who retained their U.S.

citizenship, returned to the United States in 1912, the year Mexico erupted into revolution. Thefuture governor didn't arrive in Michigan until 1939, when he was 32 years old. He didn't run foroffice until 1962.McCain, on the other hand, didn't get to Arizona until 1981, a year before winning election toCongress, when he was 44. In 1986, after two terms in the House, McCain won the Senate seat beingvacated by the retiring Barry Goldwater, the GOP's presidential nominee in 1964. Ironically,Goldwater was born in Phoenix in 1909 – three years before Arizona became a state. But no onequestioned whether he was a "natural-born citizen."Something that people should note, whenever that 1790 law is raised, is that it was very short-lived. A lot of commentary mentions the 1790 law and LEAVES OUT the 1795 REPEALER. Useful links are ...http://memory.loc.gov/cgi-bin/ampage?collId=llsl&fileName=001/llsl001.db&recNum=227 which provided this language from 1790:
"the children of citizens of the United States that may be born beyond Sea, or out of the limits of the United States, shall be considered as natural born Citizens"
and then this link http://memory.loc.gov/cgi-bin/ampage?collId=llsl&fileName=001/llsl001.db&recNum=538 per which, we find that the entire Naturalization Law of March 26, 1790 (1 Stat. 103) was repealed by theNaturalization Act of January 29, 1795 (1 Stat. 414) and the relevant clause was re-rendered to read:
"the children of citizens of the United States that may be born beyond Sea, or out of the limits of the United States, shall be considered as Citizens"
THEN, along comes the "revival" of the issue for the 2008 Presidential election:http://www.nytimes.com/2008/02/28/us/politics/28mccain.html

 McCain’s Canal Zone Birth Prompts Queries About Whether That Rules Him OutBy CARL HULSEPublished: February 28, 2008WASHINGTON — The question has nagged at the parents of Americans born outside thecontinental United States for generations: Dare their children aspire to grow up and becomepresident? In the case of Senator John McCain of Arizona, the issue is becoming more than a matterof parental daydreaming.Mr. McCain’s likely nomination as the Republican candidate for president and the happenstance of his birth in the Panama Canal Zone in 1936 are reviving a musty debate that has surfacedperiodically since the founders first set quill to parchment and declared that only a “natural-borncitizen” can hold the nation’s highest office. Almost since those words were written in 1787 with scant explanation, their precise meaning hasbeen the stuff of confusion, law school review articles, whisper campaigns and civics class debates
