Clint Eastwood to speak at the Republican National Convention

TAMPA—Academy Award-winning actor and director Clint Eastwood will speak at the Republican National Convention on Thursday, multiple news outlets are reporting.

Rumors about a “mystery speaker” swirled after convention organizers released a revised schedule earlier this week with a “To Be Announced” slot before a speech by Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, who will introduce Mitt Romney. Some speculated Sarah Palin or Rush Limbaugh would be the surprise guest, while others tabbed Tim Tebow, the Jesus-loving New York Jets quarterback. Former Presidents George W. Bush and George H.W. Bush were also mulled.

But according to CNN, Eastwood, who endorsed Romney at a fundraiser in Sun Valley, Idaho, earlier this month, “is expected to walk through the convention floor in the afternoon for a brief rundown of the night’s events.” The 82-year-old actor secretly flew to Tampa, Reuters said.

Eastwood, best known for his on-screen roles as Dirty Harry, was once a Republican mayor of Carmel, Calif., his hometown.

In February, Eastwood appeared in a controversial Super Bowl ad for Chrysler touting Detroit’s resurgence. “It’s halftime in America,” Eastwood declared. “And our second half’s about to begin.”

“They almost lost everything,” the “Gran Torino” star continued. “But we all pulled together. Now Motor City is fighting again.”

The ad drew the ire of some Republicans—including Karl Rove—who said the spot was a thinly veiled commercial for the Obama administration and the success of the auto bailout.

“I was, frankly, offended by it,” Rove said on Fox News. “I’m a huge fan of Clint Eastwood, I thought it was an extremely well-done ad, but it is a sign of what happens when you have Chicago-style politics, and the president of the United States and his political minions are, in essence, using our tax dollars to buy corporate advertising.”

But Eastwood dismissed the criticism, telling Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly he was “certainly not politically affiliated with Mr. Obama.”

“I think the country needs a boost,” Eastwood said in Sun Valley. “Now more than ever do we need Gov. Romney. I’m going to be voting for him

2012 VP Prospects

Senator Marco Rubio’s father was not a naturalized citizen when Marco was born in May 1971 per National Archives data. His father applied for naturalization in Sep 1975. Marco Rubio not constitutionally eligible to run for President or VP, By Retired Navy Commander Charles Kerchner

A natural born Citizen of the United States is one born in the United States to two U.S. Citizens who were Citizens of the United States either by birth or naturalization at the time of the birth of the child. A natural born Citizen of the United States is a child born with sole allegiance to the United States, a person born without Citizenship in any other country other than the USA at the time of their birth. A natural born Citizen has no foreign influence or claim on them by another country at the time of their birth under U.S. law and the Law of Nations. That is why the founders and framers chose the legal term of art “natural born Citizen” for the eligibility clause for the singular most powerful office in our form of government, the President and Commander in Chief of our military. They did not wish command of our military forces to ever devolve to a person born with dual allegiances.

Senator Marco Rubio of FL has been evasive and not been forthcoming about his exact citizenship status upon his birth in the United States in May 1971. Phone calls, emails, and letters to his office by various volunteers over the last year have gone unanswered on the question of whether his parents (who were immigrants from Cuba) had become naturalized citizens of the USA by the time of Marco’s birth in the USA.

We have given Senator Rubio long enough to be voluntarily forthcoming on this information. A phone call last week by a volunteer researcher assisting my efforts to learn more about Senator Marco Rubio’s exact birth citizenship status was made to the National Archives (NARA) to learn the facts about Senator Marco Rubio and certain other individuals who are mentioned in the media as potential candidates for President or Vice President. That is, are they constitutionally eligible, i.e., “natural born Citizens of the United States” as is required in Article II, Section 1 of the U.S. Constitution.

According to the information conveyed to the volunteer during the phone calls to NARA about Senator Marco Rubio of FL, his father did not petition to become a naturalized citizen of the United States until Sep 1975, a full four years after Marco Rubio was born. A natural born Citizen of the United States is one born in the United States to two U.S. Citizens at the time of the birth. Thus Senator Marco Rubio is NOT a natural born Citizen of the United States. He is a native born Citizen under the 14th Amendment and/or the Wong Kim Ark (1898) Supreme Court decision which grants basic citizenship to individuals born in the USA. But Senator Marco Rubio is NOT a natural born Citizen under Article II, Section 1. Thus Senator Marco Rubio is NOT constitutionally eligible to serve as President or Vice President of the United States per Article II, Section 1, and the last sentence of the 12th Amendment to the Constitution. Senator Marco Rubio has obviously known this for a long time. His silence in response to the American electorate and avoidance to answering the questions put to him over the last year about this issue says a lot about Marco Rubio and indicates that when it comes to his own personal political objectives he is in the progressive school of thought about following the fundamental law of the land, our U.S. Constitution. To people of the progressive school of thinking the Constitution says and means whatever one wants it to mean to allow one to achieve their personal political power and goals, i.e., what John McCain did in the 2008 presidential election cycle in making a deal with Senator Obama and the U.S. Senate so that McCain could run unmolested about questions by the Democrat Party operatives and their allies in the major media as to his natural born Citizenship status.

Senator Marco Rubio is NOT a natural born Citizen. He was born with dual allegiance. One to the USA by location of birth and the other to Cuba via gaining Cuban citizenship at birth via his father since his father had not yet naturalized to the USA and renounced his Cuban citizenship by doing so. This is similar to the situation with Obama gaining British citizenship at birth from his Kenyan British Subject father. Senator Marco Rubio should stand up for the Constitution and speak out about this and say that as much as he’d like to run someday for those offices, he is not constitutionally eligible to run for President or VP. He should be a protector of the U.S. Constitution, the document that gave his parents the freedom and liberty they sought when they naturalized in this country. He should put his personal ambitions for higher office aside. He should tell the RNC and people in the media the facts and stand up like a statesman should and support the Constitution and not allow them to continue their musing and aspirations to run him for Prez and VP some day. To allow such discussions to continue in the major media is allowing them to continue to undermine the true meaning and intent of the “natural born Citizen” clause in Article II of the U.S. Constitution.

In addition to clarifying his own constitutional citizenship status, Senator Marco Rubio of FL should also say that Obama is not eligible either and should be investigated for election fraud and criminal activities such as SSN fraud and draft registration fraud and be removed from office. We not only have a constitutionally ineligible person in the Oval Office but we also have a grifter and criminal in that office.

The leadership of the Republican Party and the RNC is also complicit in this usurpation of the founders and framers intent with the eligiblity clause in Article II Section 1. The Republican Party leadership has ENABLED Obama to get away with what he’s done to illegally usurp national power in order that the Republican Party can do the same thing too, i.e., ignore the Constitution when it suits their own political power objectives. It’s time for a change in the Republican Party leadership … a major change. We need dedicated constitutionalists to take over the party and fight the righteous battle to restore the rule of law and the U.S. Constitution to full force and effect in Washington DC and throughout our great land and to investigate Obama and have him removed for the fraud and criminal he is, and to thence begin a purge in Washington DC of all the enablers of this usurpation and cover up. We the People demand it.

Copies of the naturalization petition for U.S. Citizenship filed in Sep 1975 for Mario Rubio, the father of Senator Marco Rubio who was born in May 1971, were mailed to me from the National Archives and will be published here upon receipt.

UPDATE 27 May 2011: Copy of Sep 1975 Petition for Naturalization for Mario Rubio, father of Senator Marco Rubio who was born in May 1971, more than 4 years after his father elected to become a U.S. Citizen and renounce his Cuban citizenship:

CDR Kerchner (Ret)

Naturalization Petition Filed in Sep 1975 for Mario Rubio, the father of Senator Marco Rubio born May 1971

If the NBC issue encapsulates Obama then it must also encapsulate Rubio as well.  Only a Natural Born Citizen of the United States of America may serve as President or Vice President of these United States as per Article II Section I Clause IV of the United States Constitution.

The Good News: Rubio’s Eligible

The Founders were serious about American identity and the integrity of republican principles.  It was an incredible blessing to us that George and Martha Washington had no children of their marriage.  Washington had referred to this fact in the first draft of his Inaugural Address.  There would be no danger of monarchy here, he said, because he had “no child for whom I could wish to make provision — no family to build in greatness upon my country’s ruin.”

Now, consider Marco Rubio.  His parents were resident aliens when he was born in 1971, seeking and soon to receive their status as naturalized U.S. citizens.  Under the Fourteenth Amendment, “all persons born…in the United States and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the states wherein they reside.”  This “subject to the jurisdiction thereof” clause shows why Rubio is — and, very likely, why children of illegal aliens are not — a “natural born citizen of the United States.”

We should be very careful in discussions of the Constitution to avoid the impression that we are an anti-immigrant party.  To say that Rubio, Jindal, and Haley are forever barred because of a strained interpretation of the Constitution’s eligibility clause would condemn conservatism to minority status for the foreseeable future.  Surely, that is not what we want.

The Obama Hustle’s response to the Conservative Byte article:

I and many of me fellow American Citizens feel that the literal wording of the U.S. Constitution as it pertains to an individuals eligibility to hold Presidential and or the Vice Presidential office needs to be exact as expressed in Article II – Section I – Clause IV of the United States Constitution:

Clause 5: Qualifications for office

“No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.”

Marco Rubio Endorses Mitt Romney, Avoids Vice

Presidential Speculation

ABC NewsBy Michael Falcone | ABC News2 hrs 1 min ago

Marco Rubio Endorses Mitt Romney, …

ABC News’ Michael Falcone, Emily Friedman and Matthew Jaffe report:

Florida Sen. Marco Rubio officially threw his support behind Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney Wednesday night in an appearance on Fox News’Hannity” show.

“It’s evidently and increasingly clear that Mitt Romney’s going to be the Republican nominee,” Rubio told Sean Hannity. “I am going to endorse Mitt Romney.”

“He offers such a stark contrast to the president’s record,” he added.

Rubio said that the primary needed to come to a close and that Republicans must avoid a “floor fight” in Tampa this summer: “I don’t think there’s anything good about that.”

“I think it’s a recipe for disaster.”

“I think all the candidates in this race have a lot to be proud of,” speaking of the other Republicans running for the party’s nomination, but he called Obama a “disastrous president” and suggested the GOP should begin to focus on the general election.

Perhaps more than any other Republican, Rubio’s name is tossed around as a potential vice presidential  candidate. Rubio shot down that speculation on “Hannity” saying, “I don’t believe I’m going to be asked to be the vice presidential nominee. ”

He said as much in an interview earlier on Wednesday.

“It’s not going to happen,” Rubio told MSNBC‘s Andrea Mitchell. “But I’m obviously flattered by, that people think about me that way. There are some things I’d like to get done here in the United States Senate. I’m enjoying the role that we have here.”

Mitchell noted that he would “have a lot more power as vice president, potentially.”

“Oh, you think so?” Rubio replied, grinning widely. “I don’t know. I mean that’s debatable. Well, I’m enjoying my time here in the Senate. It’s a privilege to serve here, and that’s really what I’m focused on. I’m not going to be the vice presidential nominee, but I’m always flattered when people bring it up. I think they mean it as a compliment.”

Tuesday, in an appearance on the “Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” Romney was asked to describe Rubio in one word. Using three, Romney responded “The American Dream.”

And in Metairie, Louisiana, on Friday, Romney referred to Rubio when making his argument against “Obamacare,” saying that the Florida senator made a good point about the costliness of the plan:

“There’s another one that Marco Rubio mentioned-the Senator from Florida-he said even if Obama care were a perfect piece of legislation-and it’s not-we can’t afford a trillion dollars of new spending,” Romney said. “And we just heard from the CBO, it’s not a trillion dollars, it’s double that. And so, the critics were right, and the advocates were wrong. Obama care is massively more expensive than originally estimated and we cannot afford more government spending.”

Rubio is taking other steps to shed his previously low-profile. The South Carolina GOP announced earlier this month that the Florida senator will be keynoting the party’s annual Silver Elephant dinner on May 19.

And the publisher of Rubio’s forthcoming memoir, “An American Son,” announced that it was pushing up the release date from October to June 19.

According to         a late January poll conducted by Latino Decisions for ABC News and Univision, 60 percent of Latino Republicans in Florida would be much more likely to vote Republican in November if Rubio is added to the GOP ticket. Nationwide, 13 percent of Latinos said they would be much more likely to vote Republican if that happened, with 12 percent saying they would be somewhat more likely to back the GOP if Rubio joined forces with Romney.

That         same poll found that 67 percent of Latinos would back Obama in a matchup against Romney, who only earned 25 percent of their support. 41 percent of Latinos nationwide said they had a somewhat unfavorable or very unfavorable view of Romney. And a whopping 72 percent of Latinos said the Republican candidates in the primary either didn’t care too much about Latinos or were being outright hostile towards Latinos.

Rubio would obviously help Romney’s cause in that regard.

The Florida senator has criticized his party’s approach to Latinos. In February, Rubio told Time Magazine, “What’s the Republican legal-immigration plan? And that’s a problem, when all they [Latinos] hear from you is what you’re against and not what you’re for… Ultimately there is, in my opinion, hundreds of thousands of conservatives and potential conservatives all across this country that will never become conservatives because they somehow feel that the party where the conservative movement is housed doesn’t want them.”

While Romney consistently says it would be “presumptuous” to give names of people he’d consider for the vice president before he’s the GOP nominee, often waving off the question by saying that the republicans have a “deep bench” that could fill the slot, that Rubio is on Romney’s mind is undeniable.

Romney has not shied away from speaking highly of Rubio on the campaign trail, even coming to his defense last October when several publications challenged the year that Rubio’s parents fled Cuba, arguing that the Florida senator may have embellished his family’s history.

At a press conference at his Manchester, N.H., campaign headquarters, Romney was asked about the controversy, to which he leapt to Rubio’s defense.

“I have the highest respect for Marco Rubio I think his family’s history having come to this country speaks for itself. This is a family who came with nothing and Marco Rubio and his family deserve the highest praise and recognition. I think the world of Marco Rubio and support him entirely and think the effort to try to smear him was unfortunate and bogus,” said Romney.

On Wednesday night, Rubio returned the favor: “We have an obligation to work on behalf of the nominee, Mitt Romney,” he said.

“I have zero doubt in my mind of two things,” Rubio said. “Number one, that Mitt Romney will govern as a conservative. Number two, he will be head and shoulders better than the guy who is in the White House right now.”
