CONSTITUTIONAL QUESTION: When there are no federal laws or regulations on a particular constitutional subject matter should Congress and the Federal Agencies of the United States Government look to the Constitution for guidance or use their own discretion in isolation to the Constitution?
FOR THE ANSWER:
In Jeromi R. Corsi of WorldNetDaily.com, BORN IN THE USA? Congress Report Concedes Obama Eligibility Unvetted: ‘There is No Specific Federal Agency’ to Review Candidates for Federal Office, November 8, 2010:
[T]here is no federal law, regulation, rule, guideline, or requirement that a candidate for federal office produce his or her original birth certificate, or a certified copy of the record of live birth, to any official of the United States Government; nor is there a requirement for federal candidates to publicly release such personal record or documentation. Furthermore, there is no specific federal agency or office that “vets” candidates for federal office as to qualifications or eligibility prior to election. Jack Maskell, Qualifications for the Office of President of the United States and Legal Challenges to the Eligibility of a Candidate, Congressional Research Service (CRS), April 3, 2009.
The U.S. Coast Guard’s Final Agency Action also begs the same question on whether the U.S. Government agencies and its military must look to the Constitution when there are no federal laws or regulations regarding a particular subject matter. It is this Final Agency Action denial plus the U.S. Coast Guard’s retaliatory action in pulling me off a U.S. Government vessel anchored off the coast of Lithuania for questioning by NCIS European Division (based in Italy) because the Coast Guard wrongfully percieved a threat from me in an article I emailed to Coast Guard Headquarters in Washington, DC discussing Second Amendment rights of U.S. merchant seamen.
Note the Coast Guard’s admission to my observation on the absence of federal laws and regulations for a “National Open Carry” endorsement on the Merchant Mariner’s Document. U.S. merchant seamen must have small arms training when taking employment as an able seaman aboard U.S. Government vessels as required by Military Sealift Command and U.S. Department of the Navy regulations. The purpose of my 8 years of federal litigation is to sustain our right to exercis our Second Amendment and Ninth Amendment right to openly keep and bear arms in intrastate, interstate, and maritime travel to the extent allowed by the Constitution.
The portion of the text in the Coast Guard’s Final Agency Action below that matches the constitutional question in the CRS Report above is also underlined in red.
DO I HAVE NOW HAVE THE ATTENTION OF THE NRA? SAF? GOA? JPFO?
WILL THEY EMAIL ME? (email@example.com)
Now that I have established the relevance of my Second Amendment case to the Obama’s eligibility question under the natural born citizen clause of the Constitution the question now is when will this newly found relevance gains the attention of the NRA, SAF, GOA, JPFO, and all the other Second Amendment advocacy groups and individuals. What more do I have to do to get support for my Second Amendment case? Get arrested?
