Why This Girl Is Challenging The Constitution?

October 15, 2019


10-YEAR-OLD ALENA MULHERN, IS MAKING A
SPLASH IN HER ATTEMPT TO TAKE HOME THE U.S. CONSTITUTION. I HAVE TO ADMIT
I AM IMPRESSED BY HER. SHE HAS A SIMILAR STORY TO
TWO OF MY SISTERS. I HAVE TWIN SISTERS THAT ARE
YOUNGER THAN ME AND THEY WERE ADOPTED FROM SOUTH KOREA
WHEN THEY WERE INFANTS. ALENA WAS ADOPTED WHEN SHE WAS
10 MONTHS OLD FROM CHINA. A LOT OF KIDS GROW UP BEING
TOLD YOU CAN DO WHATEVER YOU WANT WHEN YOU GROW UP. ALENA CAN’T BECAUSE SHE IS NOT
A NATURAL BORN CITIZEN. TAKE A LOOK AT ARTICLE TWO
SECTION 1, CLAUSE 5 OF THE U.S. CONSTITUTION. IT READS, “NO PERSON EXCEPT A
NATURAL BORN CITIZEN, OR A CITIZEN OF UNITED DATES, AT THE
TIME OF THE ADOPTION OF THE 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 35 YEARS, AND BEEN 14 YEARS A RESIDENT OF
THE UNITED STATES.” ALENA SAYS THAT IS NOT
COOL, I AM AN AMERICAN. SHE ACTUALLY HAS GONE BEFORE
THE MASSACHUSETTS STATE LEGISLATURE WHERE SHE TESTIFIED
IN FRONT OF A HOUSE COMMITTEE. SHE’S STARTING TO GET A LOT OF
MEDIA ATTENTION ABOUT THIS. THIS IS THE FIRST TIME
I’VE SEEN A 10-YEAR-OLD MAKE SUCH A SPLASH.>>TED CRUZ WAS ALSO BORN IN
CANADA, WHY DOES HE GET TO BECOME ñ RUN FOR PRESIDENT? JOHN MCCAIN WAS ALSO NOT
BORN IN THE UNITED STATES.>>
I LOVE THAT YOU BRING THIS UP. EVERY ARTICLE ABOUT
THIS BRINGS UP THOSE EXAMPLES. JOHN MCCAIN WAS BORN IN PANAMA,
SO TECHNICALLY THAT IS AMERICAN SOIL.>>YES, TED CRUZ, HIS
MOTHER WAS A CITIZEN. SO IT’S LIKE THE JEWS.>>IN A LOT OF
OTHER PLACES
YOU HAVE TO RENOUNCE YOUR CITIZENSHIP IN ORDER TO ACCEPT. I THINK THIS IS A REALLY
INTERESTING STORY BECAUSE WE NEED TO BE A LITTLE MORE
FLEXIBLE WHEN IT COMES TO THESE DOCUMENTS. A LOT OF PEOPLE LOOK AT THE
CONSTITUTION LIKE IT IS A FUCKING BIBLE. IT IS IMPORTANT, AND I THINK
THAT THE CONSTITUTION IS ONE OF THE GREATEST PIECES OF
LEGISLATION THAT HAS EVER BEEN WRITTEN, BUT IT WAS
WRITTEN A LONG TIME AGO AND WAS WRITTEN UNDER DIFFERENT
CIRCUMSTANCES. SO JUST LIKE SECOND AMENDMENT
ADVOCATES WHO THINK IT SHOULD NEVER BE CHANGED, WE HAVE A
LOT OF AMENDMENTS TO THE CONSTITUTION. WE WENT UNDER PROHIBITION, AND
THEN WE SAID THAT’S NOT WORKING, LET’S REPEAL THAT.>>WE HAD TO AMEND THE CONSTITUTION
SO THAT WOMEN COULD VOTE. THAT’S HOW FUCKED UP THE
CONSTITUTION WAS AT FIRST.>>I THINK WE SHOULD THINK
ABOUT THE TIME IN WHICH THIS DOCUMENT WAS WRITTEN AND
WHAT IT WAS APPLYING TO. WE ALSO MAY NEED TO GET OFF
OUR HIGH HORSE AND WISE UP TO THE 10-YEAR-OLD IN OUR
COUNTRY THAT’S MAKING GOOD WAVES.>>HER MOTHER MUST BE
SO PROUD OF HER. SHE DOESN’T WANT TO BE A CELEB
OR A KARDASHIAN, SHE WANTS TO BE PRESIDENT. I WOULD LOVE TO HAVE A
KID LIKE THIS ONE DAY.>>I HAVE A GREAT QUOTE. SHE SAYS, “I WOULD BE A GREAT
LEADER AND BRING PEOPLE TOGETHER. I WOULD GUIDE OUR COUNTRY SO WE
COULD BE AN EVEN GREATER PLACE TO LIVE, WORK
AND RAISE A FAMILY. MOST OF ALL, I LOVE MY COUNTRY.” THE TRUTH IS I THINK LIVING AS
AN AMERICAN CITIZEN WITH DIFFERENT COLORED SKIN ñ SHE NEVER HAD ANY SORT OF
CHINESE CULTURE, BUT PEOPLE TREAT HER DIFFERENTLY BECAUSE
SHE LOOKS DIFFERENT, I THINK FOR THEM IT IS A SPECIAL INSIGHT
INTO WHAT A LOT OF PRIVILEGED WHITE AMERICANS CANNOT
IMAGINE LIFE MUST BE LIKE. THINK THAT IS A COOL
PERSPECTIVE TO HAVE.

  1. Republican logic: Don't listen to her people she is actually a North Korea spy sent here to destroy the American Dream and turn us into a communist country.

  2. My son is from Russia. I told him he could never be president and his remark was so mature. "Well, dad, that's the law."

  3. She should just be happy she's not living in China. She is protected against corruption from government by the constitution.

  4. I am sorry, but I have a compulsion to be shallow in this comment: Cara Santa Maria is a beautiful, obviously intelligent woman, yet he lip ring she feels the need to wear lessens her ability to present a credible image. I know it is trivial, yet she has important things to relate and I personally think such an image detracts from her impact. If she feels the need to display a piercing, perhaps a subtle diamond stud in the nose would be less intrusive to the viewer. Just my personal opinion.

  5. It doesn't matter if the base John McCain was born on was technically American soil. His parents were American, so he's a natural born citizen. Even if Obama were born in Kenya he'd still be a natural born US citizen.

  6. i think you should have to be raised in america to be american president. obama doesnt strike me as either black or american, actually

  7. Technically McCain was born in the Panama Canal Zone slightly before the law was changed to make those born in such circumstances count as natural born citizens. It is debatable whether that status can be applied retroactively.

  8. I take the fact that she wants to be president as sufficient evidence that she should not be trusted with such power.

  9. In response to the argument that being an immigrant will influence loyalties…what president after JFK has put the best interest of the American people at heart?

  10. Bad idea. Might lead to loopholes, and loopholes are always trouble. Flexibility is a bad idea for a "foundation" like the constitution. By foundation I mean that thing that everything else is built on. A flexible foundation is a weak foundation and nothing built upon it will last very long. Better to have a strong, solid foundation with no (loop)holes in it, no matter the cost.

  11. This not news TYT! Because children change their minds after awhile. The Young Turds has seemingly waterbed-down to nothing more than a dense network. #Uninformativenews

  12. TYT is the basis for south park trolling this pc liberal bullshit! ARe you kidding me with this crap. The constitution made this law for a reason by men that were far smarter than any of you ever will be.

  13. I was born in Israel and my parents moved to the U.S. when I was 2 weeks old.
    I grew up in the US and lived the first 34 years of my life (save the 1st 2 weeks) there.
    Even having lived overseas for nearly a decade, I see myself as American, not Israeli, so I know how this young lady feels.

    On the other hand, someone could be born in the US, move to a radical enemy nation for the next 21 years (since he'd be a resident of that nation, not a citizen, he wouldn't need to give up his US citizenship), be indoctrinated by an anti-American culture, then return to the US and run for president.

    Go fig.

  14. hypocrisy is still hypocrisy even if it's for the right reasons TYT. I appreciate the message but yall are all over the constitution when it comes to gun control and gay marriage. Just admit it and keep going.

  15. I'm just want to see the fox news coverage on this. They have just about offended every minority in this country so I don't expect them to pull any punches for Asian peoole.

  16. I think we should leave the constitution as it is. I was born in South Korea and came to the state when I was one, but I'm still born somewhere else. It will be safer for natural born citizen to run for president.

  17. If most republicans can run, so can this ten year old girl, the ten year old girl has more intelligence anyway.

  18. The Constatution is not the bible it is the rulebook which we all live by and agree tp live by. By the way My grandpa was born in England came to America when he was between 1 and 4 and if he couldn't run for President why should she?

  19. This women JUST WANT Attention!!!…why she wants to be President? can she not see the corrupt system and puppet masters contol over politics!? Look at Hillary! her example look Obama with negative agendas If you want to change something in America Change stupid and currupt decline in America elits Help the common people get better right jobs ect …why waste your time in Fantasy?? …

  20. The constitution was written over 200 years ago by some old racist men. It really needs to be looked at and updated. Times change, Would anyone go to a doctor who uses methods from the 1700s?

  21. I've been saying this for years, your place of birth doesn't magically make you more or less American. There are plenty of un-American jackasses that were born & raised here. It'd be like denying equal rights if you don't have the right skin tone, or denying marriage rights if you don't pork the right kind of person, or denying patronage for not having the same religious beliefs as you, or… yeah I'm starting to see a pattern for these sentiments here…

  22. Sigh. The majority of legal scholars agree that a natural born citizen is an individual who, at birth, has U.S. citizenship. Ted Cruz is a natural born citizen because at birth he automatically qualified as a U.S. citizen due to his parents' status as U.S. citizens.

  23. "People look at the constitution as if it is the bible". I think that phrase is messed up in all sorts of ways. I think the bible is a waste of paper. A terrible story full of backwards tales and allegories. The Constitution (be it that of the USA or Canada) is an important document which is forever changing as we the people change our values. I look at the Constitution as if it were a key component of my freedom and I look at the bible, well to be honest; never.

  24. TYT being pro-tyranny and treason again. The Constitution is not just 'important'. It is the law of the land. There is a way to change it called a Constitutional Amendment. Saying you want to do away with that process and just go with whatever is popular by the ruling majority is to give up on having even a pretense of rule by law, just rule by power, and to call for a coup d'etat.

  25. Sorry, but if you're not born here, you can't be president. If this is changed, anyone from anywhere can be president. Not a door I want to be opened.

  26. The argument for removing the requirement of being a natural born citizen is compelling at first glance. But changing this would open up a can of worms that our country isn't really capable of dealing with right now. Those requirements are essentially a loyalty test. After all, you want the command in chief to be loyal to the people of the United States.

    So if we change it, how do we define loyalty? It is a very important, but very subjective thing. I mean, people have been convinced that Presidential candidates hate this country because they didn't put their hand on their heart during the national anthem, or didn't wear lapel pin of the stars and stripes one time on camera.

    We have to be careful of how we change it so that we don't subject ourselves to even more foreign influence, and also don't arbitrarily disqualify vast swaths of Americans from being President due to some horribly subjective/manipulative criteria.

  27. There is a reason the constitution has that in it . . . it's so people with strong ties to other countries and governments will never be a position to make life and death decisions that could end up working against the interests of the US and toward the interests of their particular native homeland.

  28. Also, this video is one of the reasons that I know consider liberals and republicans to be equally stupid.

  29. here we go, there are reason why its set up that way morons. it stops someone like say a ISIS member coming here becoming a citizen then runs for prez then destroys the country. to put in layman terms it stops subversion

  30. The problem is that the presidency has been given too much prestige. We need to make it less prestigious. Make the White House a museum, lower the president's salary, and limit the days off he has.

  31. This is stupid, yes this specific case probably could be an exception but until she has a career in politics it's stupid and a waste of time to challenge it.

  32. Yeah, and the constitution also specifically says that anchor babies are not us citizens either, but it hasnt been enforced in a long time.

  33. I think its to avoid a conflict of interests.  Even though she was raised here she may one day identify with her own  people.  The founders were not stupid, they understood human nature. Maybe that's why?

  34. It would be a lot cheaper to be a lobbyist if she were president. You'd just need to come bearing Justin Bieber posters to swing national policy in your favor.

    BTW, "and been 14 years a resident of the United States" means a total of 14 years, not necessarily the last 14.

  35. I don't get why Americans think that their Constitution is infallible and forget that it was just written by primitive people in primitive times. 240 years ago (the time the constitution was written) is pretty primitive compared to 2015. So it's not really hard for a kid or anyone else in our time, to challenge something that has been written by people who lived in a primitive time. Stop sanctifying primitive ideas that was made by primitive humans.

  36. It will never happen. To many people would worry about "sleeper" candidates. Candidates who purport to be working for America, when in fact they would be working in the interest of their birth nation.

  37. stupid argument… let's see if the answer can be simple enough for we-todd-did folks… why does a basketball player NOT get 4 points for a half court shot? personally, i think they should.. how can we make that happen? by stomping on the floor demanding the referee give you the 4 instead of 3? hmm, bet he won't.. why? BECAUSE IT'S THE FUKIN RULES!! you only get 3. should we have a rule change? sure, maybe.. I'm for it. but wait, that's not up to me… hmm. well, maybe all the league representatives could get together, vote on it and, oh i don't know… AMEND THE RULES!!?? yeah, sounds like a plan. ok, now we got the important shit out of the way, what about that stupid ass-wipe piece of yellow paper that this country's .. RULES WERE OUTLINED IN… written by ''old rich White dudes''… (Thomas Jefferson, 33yrs old, Declaration of Independence)(James Madison, 40yrs old when ratified, 36yrs old when written, Constitution)… the reason we have legal alcohol sales in this country is because the 21st amendment CHANGED THE RULES established by the 18th amendment that… yep, you guessed it.. CHANGED THE RULES!! because of this process, ALL gun laws are illegal and no, IT DOES NOT MATTER what you T H I N K! the supreme court is NOT the last word (states are) and they are NOT always right, just because they are the ''supreme'' court, does not make them right, they are, contrary to their own beliefs, human, infallible. example, obamacare, completely, from start to finish, illegal, not my opinion, it is fact. so, right now, AS THE RULES HAVE IT, she is SOL on becoming president, nor can she play in the nba, nfl, mlb, she cannot be a mason nor can she be a father. doubtful she will ever be able to grow a beard… an amendment to the constitution may allow her to run for president. until then, IT'S AGAINST THE RULES!!

  38. I like what TYT is saying. Make it so that anyone can be president. Cara is so far ahead of the times. Yes, even 10 year-old can be president.

  39. I cannot believe… that there are people… who are attacking the constitution of the united states. The same document that prevents the government from trampling our rights.. is being attacked… by AMERICANS. insanity.

  40. the only people who try to change it are evil . the way it is is perfect its those who are trying to destroy it are so evil .

  41. our for fathers was wise and  being born in usa is  a reason, and age to , trying to change it is evil and only evil people support it like this dumb ass brown eye blow, her grins are evil

  42. Here in Canada, all you have to be is over the age of 18. We literally had a person born in Connecticut leading the Green party.

  43. I do wonder if this could weaken constitutional protections that we all cherish though. It also feels like relatively new grounds, I wonder what the rules are for other countries with presidents? I imagine even if there were changes, a potential candidate would still find challenges from Xenophobia from these new kinds of candidates. I also imagine the "natural born citizen" thing will have to be removed altogether because if you change it to "born within 1 year" that the idea will be challenged until the 14 year residing in the US thing is the only aspect that sticks. I remember this story, but I'm just still not sure.

  44. 28 amendments? Not so sure about that guys. Maybe do your research and read the Constitution every now and again.

  45. These people are so wrong. The Framers meant for a NBC to be one born on the soil of America of 2 TWO parents who were themselves NBC. NBC=Born on American soil. The President and Vice President are the only two offices that this is required for. All other offices a person must be a Naturalized Citizen which this 10 year old girl is. Read Vattel for the understanding of NBC. For these Young Turk Idiots the Constitution is the Secular Bible, is the Supreme (none being over it) Law of the Land and does not need updating or reinterpreting, modernizing or updating for the ages. It is the envy of most of the world.

  46. I saw this story on The today show and her mother lied to her she should have said no don't waste money on fake bumper stickers and dumb political remarks like challenging the constitution is not the brightest idea
