The elite internationalist clique who think they are born to rule over us has hit a speedbump. It turns out that being a bunch of rootless cosmopolitans isnt constitutionally smiled upon.

Senator Waters said it was with "great shock and sadness" that she made the discovery she was still a citizen of the country she had not visited since she was 11 months old.
In an emotional press conference in Brisbane on Tuesday, Senator Waters said she was "devastated to discover" if she had been born a week later, she would not be in this position.
Senator Waters said she had lawyers look over her status over the weekend, following her colleague's discovery, and learnt late Monday afternoon she held dual-citizenship.
"I left Canada as a baby, born to Australian parents studying and working briefly in Canada before they returned home," she said.
"I have lived my life thinking that as a baby I was naturalised to be Australian and only Australian, and my parents told me that I had until age 21 to actively seek Canadian citizenship. At 21, I chose not to seek dual citizenship, and I have never even visited Canada since leaving at 11 months old.
"However after Scott's shock discovery, I immediately sought legal advice, and was devastated to learn that because of 70-year-old Canadian laws I had been a dual citizen from birth, and that Canadian law changed a week after I was born and required me to have actively renounced Canadian citizenship "I had not renounced since I was unaware that I was a dual citizen.
"Obviously this is something that I should have sought advice on when I first nominated for the Senate in 2007, and I take full responsibility for this grave mistake and oversight. I am deeply sorry for the impact that it will have.
When you get kicked to the curb for your wealthy globalist lifestyle, don't make reference to the "common cause of the planet" as the door hits your arse on the way out.
Its an embarrassment that the rightwing couldnt uncover this shit. Why isnt checking peoples fucking citizenship part of the process?
Contrast the tone of their resignations (oh look at these dumb rules, I've sought legal advice, all very unfortunate, don't sue me or anything dumb lol) to the sneering disdain these people and their surrogates had for Culleton and Bob Day.
