Re: Mitt Romney is not a natural born citizen
As a long time LDS GENEALOGIST (I was my LDS Ward's Family Genealogist Specialist for a couple of years)...and I have been doing Genealogy since I was in my 20's - which gives me nearly 40 years of experience...I find the Romney "AMERICAN" genealogy to be troubling, if not downright LIES.
The Romney family stories and the entire Internet claim that Mitt Romney's parents were "American Citizens." That is a lot of hogwash, and the Romney family needs to do some genuine genealogy on their family to PROVE their claim of American Citizenship.
Let's start with Mitt Romney's maternal grandfather, Helaman Pratt (son of Parley P. Pratt). Helaman is noted in the LDS newfamilysearch.org website with a death in Mexico in 1907 in Mexico. His daughter, Anna, who married Gaskell Romney (Mitt's grandfather) has two LDS familysearch birth places: 1) Germany in 1854 and 2) Salt Lake City 1853. I believe #1 more than I believe #2.
What is strange is that Helaman supposedly was born either in Scotland, Canada, or Iowa (according to the LDS site). None of the sources are documented so it is a goosey-loosey genealogy.
On the Paternal side, Gaskell's father, Miles was born in England and died in 1904 in Mexico. Gaskell's mother, Hannah Hood Hill was documented to have been born in Canada in 1842. She died in Mexico in 1928-9.
Miles and Hannah did not appear to have been polygamists. But many of their family were. This is why they went to Arizona and then on to Mexico. Miles had a father also named MILES was a polygamist and had about 17-20 wives.
Gaskell Romney seems to have been indeed been born in St George, UT (1871). However at the age of 11, Gaskell moved with his parents to the Arizona Territory (1884). and then a year later Gaskell shows up in Mexico and remained there for the next 29 years of his life.
Gaskell Romney could possible be considered either an anchor baby, or else his parents actually were naturalized in Utah. I find no records where they were naturalized...so I am not convinced yet that Gaskell was a naturalized citizen. I am sure he was no NATURAL BORN CITIZEN...no birth records have been found for him.
And I wonder about how much Gaskell and his family were "under the jurisdiction" of the United States as per the 14th Amendment. At the time the LDS were in somewhat rebellion against the US Government and troops were being sent in to overthrow the "Mormon leadership."
It is clear that the Romney family found Mexico to be more to their liking. They resided in this foreign nation until they were too scared to stay and fight the Mexican rebels in 1913. They preferred to return to the US and get welfare handouts from the American Taxpayers and hid their secrets and the true Romeny history.
I find no proof that any of the Romney's EVER being naturalized and becoming a part of the American nation. They ran like scared dogs when the LDS were being persecuted and hounded for having more than one wife. And too, the Romney's are collaborators of modern day GOP GAY RIGHTS enthusiasts for more Sodomites in the Military and Sodomite appreciation in the Elementary, Middle and High Schools of America. The Romney's and the GOP bash LDS for past polygamy practices yet remain silent about Sodomites in mainstream America that are destroying our nation. The Romney's of today do not stand and fight and become outraged concerning the anti-LDS crap we hear daily on the TV and Radio. The Romney's are chicken-poops and don't deserve our vote...and they also need to prove their heritage in America.
I would be more open to the Romney family if they were truthful about their past. If there are problems with their citizenship they should be open about it all and not lie and bare falsehoods. In my one of my last posts I mentioned a certain Abdul Hassan who is not a natural born citizen and wants to run for President 2012 (contrary to the US Constitution).
In his lawsuit (see: http://www.abdulhassanforpresident.com/second_circuit/appellate_brief.pdf) he states: "the natural born provision is premised on the assumption that foreign born citizens cannot be trusted..."
I would agree somewhat with Mr. Hassan. For the most part, it is all about trust. If Mr. Mitt Romney ever became President, would he be firm on border control and making our nation secure against known Mexican evil-doers since Mr. Romney has such a love towards his father's home of yesteryear? As for Hassan's words (as a foreigner turned citizen) I do not trust most of what he says in his brief! I see lies and misstatements galore. Read it for yourself and see what I mean. As for Romney's genealogy...I see misstatements and lies galore there too! I am a firm believer in the NATURAL BORN CITIZEN clause in the US Constitution. I don't like to be governed by people of questionable loyalties. (Soetoro has proven to me that this to be a sound belief!)
How can I be more clear?
