President Barack Obama attempting to redefine the word “citizen”

Throw out your Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary, folks. President Barack Obama is now redefining words.

During Tuesday night’s State of the Union address, the POTUS expressed his belief that U.S. citizenship is only partly about one’s legal status.

“We are citizens,” the President said. “It’s a word that doesn’t just describe our nationality or legal status. It describes the way we’re made.”

Look up ‘citizen’ in the dictionary, and you’d find a definition such as: “a legally recognized subject or national of a state or commonwealth, either native or naturalized.” Seems like being a citizen is all about one’s legal status.

The President continued his remarks on ‘citizenship’ by saying we have an obligation to one another.

“[Citizenship] captures the enduring idea that this country only works when we accept certain obligations to one another and to future generations; that our rights are wrapped up in the rights of others; and that well into our third century as a nation, it remains the task of us all, as citizens of these United States, to be the authors of the next great chapter in our American story,” Obama said.

Yet, looking at President Obama’s record, it seems like he’s forgotten about our “obligations” to “future generations.” During his first term in office, the national debt increased by $5.8 trillion, according to USA Today, amounting to the largest debt increase under any one president.

So much for being a model ‘citizen,’ Mr. President.

    He must have attended Bill Clinton’s workshop the definitions of words , And how to distort and mis-speak and not be blamed.. I heard the other day he wanted 500 mil to create 5,000 jobs LOL I want one of those jobs . As a former business grower and owner and tax payer I can honestly say he is killing this country and now wanting higher minimum wages thats crazy all he will do is drive people out of work..There is not a green person walking this planet I would pay 9.00 an Hr too set on his hands all day until they had several month on the job to learn the basics before they got any type of pay raise I would never pay anyone 360.00 min. a week to ride in a truck and set all day. Sorry kid I’m not hiring anyone to learn my trades.
    That is whats going to happen

    Barry Soetoro/Obama/Bounel (or Whatever his Real Name is) seems, not only is Not a ‘Natural Born Citizen’, but, according to the Federal E-Verify System, he isn’t even a CITIZEN, using the SSAN that he has been claiming is righfully his!

    A citizen, attempting to verify his rightful , legal status, imputed his SSAN & it was kicked back out as his not being ‘Kosher’.

    The goverment has since locked him out from being run through the system again…
    Awful suspicious, dont you think?

      Attempting to listen to his drooling lecture you hear the words of a true Communist.

    2. surggj says:

      Totally agree with you. He redefines what it is because he is not one and now is giving clues about it to show he pulled the wool over their eyes once again……but I do feel he is the anti-christ and it is said that the anti-christ will be able to make people drool, see things not there…….makes sense

    One more step in the road to destroying the economy of our country to get everyone on government programs. Roger Mitchell has accurately analyzed the result of this edict from the oval office. This will continue the burdens on small business and eventually destroy them. Welcome to Obama’s second term of destruction.

    George Orwell’s 1984 is manifesting now in 2013, “newspeak” and all. However, “newspeak” is now called “politically correct” speech.

    It is not surprising on the eve of a still undocumented president case going up in the U.S. Supreme Court on Friday, February 15, 2013 . This case will involve multiple crimes that Obama has committed on the American people all involving his efforts to deceive this country on his true identity. He is using a stolen social security card, issued to a Harrison Bouncil. Obama has used this Conn. issued SS number for more than twenty years, a forged selective service card, which is a felony carrying a mandatory five year prison term and a $250,000 fine and a fraudulent birth certificate which he posted on the White House web sight . This long form BC has been proven by computer forensics experts to be fraudulent . He is not a citizen of the U.S. for one , it is believed that he gave up his citizenship ( his Naturalized citizenship) when he was adopted in Indonesia as a child. He isn’t even using his legal name which was changed when he was adopted. It all makes sense why he kept his records sealed from the American people. But even if he wasn’t adopted and was using his real birth certificate which he has yet to show the American people, but if his real father was Barack Obama senior , Obama still would not be a natural born citizen because his father never gave up his Kenya citizenship. To be natural born both parents have to be U.S. citizens at the time of your birth. Obama real father never was a citizen of this country. The founding fathers got it right because having just one of your parents with allegiance to another country is a direct influence on upbringing. Obama has allegiance to two countries and he has demonstrated that when he was a senator and was involved in elections for the president of Kenya. Obama went against the Logan Act which states that a person holding a government position in the U.S. shall not get involved with elections with other countries. Obama basically managed Odingi’s campaign when he was running to head the country of Kenya and when he lost Obama suggest he cry voter fraud and he did and the election was overturned in Odingi’s favor. A person can be a citizen of this country a Naturalized citizen just by being born here but you can’t be president or vice president if you are a naturalized, you must be natural born and this only applies to a President and Vice President. So Marco Rubio could never be president or vice president because his father was still a Cuban citizen when Marco was born , it was years later that he changed his citizenship. Both parents at the time of the child’s birth must be citizens to pass the natural born test. We the people have been totally frustrated that Obama has usurped the office and has fooled America when he was never qualified let’s just hope the supreme court follows the rule of law. Obama has been fight this in nearly 40 cases the last five years and not one judge ruled in the people’s favor and let this foreigner destroy our country when it could have been avoided. It got so bad in some of the ridiculous rulings in Obama’s favor that there one I will call the case of the judge claiming the “miracle on 34 Street Defense”. Remember in the movie the judge got all those letters from the children addressed to Santa Claus and the defense lawyer of Kris Kringle alka Santa Claus said if all these children believe he is Santa Claus then he must be. So his judge in Obama’s case had the audacity to say to the plaintiff attorney’s that Obama is president and we will just leave it at that. Hopefully that judge will be standing trial soon along with all of the other judges that didn’t protect our country. It is the biggest crime ever to be committed in this country and heads need to roll for us to recover as a nation. Congress and the senate every one of them should be thrown in jail they have been on notice and not one was man enough to do their jobs, pitiful , shameful and most of all criminal. This isn’t a game, a bill, partisanship, this is our nation being infiltrated damn it, what were these bozo’s thinking while we the people have been sweating bullets.

      I agree with almost every single word; as do millions of other Americans. Sadly however, our own lawmakers will prevent a just decision on this from happening until long after obama is gone, if he doesn’t manage to declare himself POS for life, oops, I mean POTUS for life.

      In spite of the almost insurmountable odds of justice being done regarding obama’s being an illegal POTUS, when our own lawmakers are working against the people, we might succeed if the liberal main stream media were not in his back pocket.
      For it is the liberal main stream media who is the most guilty in promoting an illegal alien to become our president.
      Instead of the media being the guardian of America and protecting our country as they have done so admirably in our past; todays media has become the enemy within. It is the media that got obama elected; it is the media that protects him every single day with distorted news and unreported news; it is the media that not only got him elected once again, but it is the media who ignored the rampant fraudulent voting that happened this past election.
      And it is the media, I fear, that will continue to elect whoever they choose in the future of our country.

      1. JennieWalsh says:

        The secret members of organized crime in government, the media, in education, in business, in banking systems, in corporations all stick up for each other, support each other and cover for each other. We are living in the midst of a major organized crime racketeering society where the “insiders” at least, for now, have the upper hand with all their secretiveness, massive wealth, high tech surveillance equipment, biological arsenal of murdering methods, expertise at “accidents” and “suicides”. Jesus warned to beware of the wolves in sheep’s clothing. They are literally everywhere pretending to be friends and helpers, patriots and Christian. They attend classes, meetings, seminars and retreats to learn deceit and treachery and to hone it to a fine art and science. No one ever hears about all this because they own and control the mainstream media and most of the governmental positions. They secretly call themselves, “Us”, “Satan worshippers” and “Kingdom of Satan”. The go to great lengths to appear normal, kind, generous, and friends while behind the scenes doing enormous evil that no one would ever suspect. With their satellite infrared computer remote viewing equipment they can watch an entire area and cover their members in any crime so that they never get caught.

    Well the Kenyan Commandante needs to make all Chinese citizens so that the DNC can remain in power forever. Besides to quote the Hildabeast, “what does it matter.”

    1. Roger Mitchell says:

      Hey if the Chinese decide to foreclose on this country then we best hope they make us citizens so we can vote in their progressive democratic party . Anytime I hear that word Progressive and or Forward or Change I know where its coming from believers of Karl Heinrich Marx’s theories and political ideas . I fear this country is less then 3 or 4 yrs from a progressive form of communism myself , But 1st they have too control the weapons .. and then yank the constitution out of existence

  7. JennieWalsh says:

    As far as “obligations to future generations” go, Obamination has already sold us, our children and grandchildren into slavery to the Chinese.

  8. Eric Coddington says:

    How long will we allow this man to disrespect elected officials ! How long will We allow
    him to make Us a joke to the world. His only real effort is has been to disrespect the
    Republicans and any one who disagrees. To go on vacations is his biggest effort
    saying he cares about his own people did any go on vacation with him are only wealthy
    people. He does not want to budget money clearly said he should have unlimited funds
    and after record debt he as a President has created where is the results, and how many
    millions are out of work? He is loading up on bullets however but what American will shoot
    another because he is the now problem in this Republic he hates.
    So as I hate to say we have needed to get off our sorry duffs and really love our God and
    Country well Obama has been good for this effort. He is bold defies our Government
    Leadership and hates what our flag stands for but has no honor and would lie and say he
    does not hate Republicans any one as a Military Leader who has a opinion about him fired
    why for a opinion.
    It is clear any enemy would be glad to join his efforts and recently two have said he is doing
    a good job. A King has taken over folks and just like the one America fired and separated from
    he does not care what we think go back and check. So we have a problem and many elected
    officials are scared of him. After all to murder an Ambassador and say I do not wish to talk a
    bout it, and hide from and destroy the truth he makes all leaders fear him! So as your Country
    is literally destroyed by this man keep enjoying your perks that by the way are going slowly
    being taken back. He will continue to harass our House in Washington and members of Congress
    keep them at each others throat there we are weak and useless in that state and the reason they
    are fighting does not matter to him. He did it just to keep us in strife and division unable to be as
    effective as a Nation and Republic. So in fact the enemy loves him and Ambassador Stevens well
    i think he was buried with his middle finger up !

  9. OneMajestic says:

    I quote – “Since citizenship carries with it a responsibility to be exclusively loyal to one country, the whole concept of dual citizenship and nationality raises questions about which of the dual citizenship’s have priority.”

    While we at the Temple of Ansar Al-Haqq don’t deny issues such as these to be a controversy that should be addressed, as stated above in our excerpt from the Law of nations; “Every thing ought to be conducted according to its nature. Nations cannot be well governed without such regulations as are suitable to their respective characters; and in order to this, their characters ought to be known.”

    Therefore, from the spiritual protection offered by being a part of a nation of peace, we best think the security of allegiance is safeguarded when that nations people conduct themselves in the manner complementary to their nature.
