Terminator Star is “ready to file legal paperwork to challenge the rules”
Oct 18, 2013
Former California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger is engaged in a campaign to change the Constitution to allow him to run for president in 2016, according to reports.
People, both CA Republicans & Democrats thought Schwarzenegger was a poor governor. He should never be President. http://t.co/XtlBsGxqlO

The New York Post claims that Schwarzenegger has been publicly discussing his plans to file suit that would overturn the rule written into the Constitution that bars foreign-born citizens from taking the office of President or Vice President.
“Schwarzenegger has been talking openly about working on getting the constitutional rules changed so he can run for president in 2016. He is ready to file legal paperwork to challenge the rules.” the Post notes, citing an unnamed source.
Section 1 of Article Two of the Constitution sets forth the eligibility requirements for serving as president of the United States:
“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.”
The Twelfth Amendment also states, “No person constitutionally ineligible to the office of President shall be eligible to that of Vice-President of the United States.”
Born in Austria, Schwarzenegger has been a US citizen since 1983, which enabled him to successfully run for Governorship in 2003.
The Fourteenth Amendment notes that “All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside.”
Under Article One of the United States Constitution, representatives and senators are only required to be U.S. citizens.
Schwarzenegger has said several times that he would definitely run for President, should the law be changed. Most recently he told Jay Leno in 2010 that he would jump at the opportunity “Without any doubt.”
Any amendment to the Constitution must be approved by two-thirds majority in the House and the Senate, then must be ratified by at least 38 of the 50 states.
As we have previously reported, Schwarzenegger has, over the years, made several disturbing comments to the effect that it is his dream to reach a position of power akin to a dictator.
In 1976, Arnie told Rolling Stone: “I feel you only can have a few leaders… and then the rest is followers. I feel that I am the born leader and that I’ve always impressed with being the leader. I hate to be the follower. I had this when I was a little boy… I didn’t think about money. I thought about the fame, about just being the greatest. I was dreaming about being some dictator of a country or some savior like Jesus.”
His Nazi ties are also well documented. Gustav Schwarzenegger, the actor’s father, was a member of the Sturmabteilung, or SA, the Nazi party’s paramilitary wing. News reports about the elder Schwarzenegger’s Nazi links first surfaced in 1990.
Film producer George Butler, who chronicled Schwarzenegger’s rise to fame as a champion bodybuilder in the 1970′s, circulated a book proposal in the late 90s that quoted the young Schwarzenegger expressing admiration for Hitler.
The producer wrote in his book proposal that in the 1970′s, he considered Mr. Schwarzenegger a “flagrant, outspoken admirer of Hitler.,” the New York Times reported in 2003. In the proposal, Mr. Butler also said he had witnessed Schwarzenegger playing “Nazi marching songs from long-playing records in his collection at home” and said that the actor “frequently clicked his heels and pretended to be an S.S. officer.”
Schwarzenegger was also best buddies with Kurt Waldheim, the former secretary general of the United Nations who had a past as a Nazi who participated in atrocities during World War II.
Alex Jones and Infowars have been covering Arnold’s quest to run for president for close to a decade now. In 2003 Jones set up the website Arnold Exposed.com as a hub to expose the abundance of decidedly seedy, shady and downright disturbing material associated with Schwarzenegger, his checkered past, and his obsession with seeking the US presidency.
Here is Alex breaking down the information in an archived 2004 broadcast:
