Truth or Consequences
By Pixel Patriot
Why do the political hacks continue with their unabated attempts to derogate the historical significance of the estimable Jurist and renowned author Emer de Vattel. “The Law of Nations” was Vattel’s magnum opus and a major influence on the Founder’s during the framing of our National Charter at the Constitutional Convention. His treatise on international law was recognized throughout the world as a masterpiece and became the textbook on Natural and National Law at The College of William and Mary from 1779-1841.
Natural Law, as opposed to Common Law is where we derive our God given unalienable rights and through which national loyalty is imbued.
THE LAW OF NATIONS OR THE PRINCIPLES OF NATURAL LAW (1758)
Book 1, Chapter 19
§ 212. Citizens and natives. “The natives, or natural-born citizens, are those born in the country, of parents who are citizens.”
Natural born citizenship formed the cornerstone of the eligibility clause for the Presidency of the Republic as the first of three requirements in Article II, Section I, Clause V. After much debate and no word without meaning, this was the Framers way to ensure sole-allegiance and no foreign influence in the highest executive office and the commander-in-chief of the Armed Forces.
Politics and ideologies aside, anyone that is still trying to belittle Vattel is at worst traitorous to the core and at best willing to subvert the rule of law so that ineligible candidates including Barack Obama, et. al can circumvent our Constitutional protections. A contemporary Supreme Court admitting to evading the controversy only widens the chink in the amour for the audacious eager to exploit. And the unenforceability of the loyalty oath renders the law unto the whims of the lawless.
For those that are intellectually honest and value the virtue of truth, the ubiquitous influence Vattel had on the Founders is incontrovertible. Herein lies more evidence to share with friends, family and your fellow law-abiding Citizens.
