Natural Born Citizen, US Constitution, Kerchner update, August 6, 2009, Founding Fathers, Obama not natural born citizen

I received this update from Charles Kerchner of the Kerchner V Obama lawsuit.

From attorney Mario Apuzzo:

“Thursday, August 6, 2009

Article II, Sec. 1, cl. 5 of the Constitution provides in pertinent part: “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. . .” In this clause and in Articles I, III, and IV, the Founding Fathers distinguished between “Citizen” and “natural born Citizen.” Per the Founders, while Senators and Representatives can be just “citizens,” the President must be a “natural born Citizen.” Through this clause, the Founders sought to guarantee that the ideals for which they fought would be faithfully preserved for future generations of Americans. The Founders wanted to assure that the Office of President and Commander in Chief of the Military, a non-collegial and unique and powerful civil and military position, was free of all foreign influence and that its holder has sole and absolute allegiance, loyalty, and attachment to the U.S. The “natural born Citizen” clause was the best way for them to assure this.

That the “natural born Citizen” clause is based on undivided allegiance and loyalty can be seen from how the Founders distinguished between “citizen” and “natural born Citizen.” This distinction is based on the law of nations which became part of our national common law. According to that law as explained by E. Vattel in his, The Law of Nations (1758), a “citizen” is a member of the civil society. To become a “citizen” is to enter into society as a member thereof. On the other hand, a native or indigenes or “natural born Citizen” is a child born in the country of two citizen parents who have already entered into and become members of the society. Vattel also tells us that it is the “natural born Citizen” who will best preserve and perpetuate the society. This definition of the two distinct terms has been adopted by many United States Supreme Court decisions. (The Venus, 12 U.S. 253 (1814) and Minor v. Happersett, 88 U.S. 162 (1874) to cite just two.) With the presidential qualification question never being involved, neither the 14th Amendment (which covers only “citizens” who are permitted to gain membership in and enter American society by either birth on U.S. soil or by naturalization and being subject to the jurisdiction of the United States), nor Congressional Acts (8 U.S.C. Sec. 1401), nor any case law (e.g. U.S. v. Wong Kim Ark, 169 U.S. 649 (1898)) has ever changed the original common law definition of a “natural born Citizen.” This amendment and laws have all dealt with the sole question of whether a particular person was going to be allowed to enter into and be a member of American society and thereby be declared a “citizen.” The 14th Amendment did not involve Article II, let alone define what a “natural born Citizen” is. Never having been changed, the original constitutional meaning of a “natural born Citizen” prevails today. We can also see from these definitions that a “citizen” could have more than one allegiance and loyalty (acquiring allegiance from one’s foreign parents or from foreign soil) but a “natural born Citizen” can have only one and that is to America (soil and parents are all united in one nation).

The original definition of “natural born Citizen” gives our Constitutional Republic the best chance of having a President and Commander in Chief of the Military who has sole and absolute allegiance, loyalty, and attachment to the United States. By satisfying all conditions of this definition, all other avenues of acquiring other foreign citizenships and allegiances (jus soli or by the soil and jus sanguinis or by descent) are cut off. Having all other means of acquiring other foreign citizenships or allegiances cut off is unity of citizenship which is what the President must have at the time of birth. Additionally, by requiring the child’s parents to be U.S. citizens best assures that those parents most likely will have absorbed American customs and values which, in turn, they will transmit to their child.

The “natural born Citizen” clause serves a critical purpose today and must be enforced in every Presidential election. The President has immense power, both civil and military. The clause assures the American people that their President does not have any conflicting allegiances or loyalties. In our nuclear world, it will avoid having a President who may hesitate to act quickly and decisively in a moment of crisis due to some internal psychological conflict of allegiance or loyalty. It will avoid any foreign nation expecting and pressuring the President to act in their best interest instead of that of America. The clause gives the American people the best chance that they will not be attacked from within through the Office of President. Knowing the President is a “natural born Citizen,” the American people will trust their President with their lives. Finally, such a President can expect that the military will give him or her full trust and obedience.

When President Obama was born in 1961, under the British Nationality Act 1948, both his father and he were British subjects/citizens. In 1963, they both became Kenyan citizens. In fact, Mr. Obama’s father was never even a legal resident or immigrant of America. Hence, regardless of where Mr. Obama was born or that he may be a United States citizen under the 14th Amendment, he is not an Article II “natural born Citizen” and not eligible to be President. This ineligibility has absolutely nothing to do with his race or class but all to do with his being born with multiple citizenships and allegiances and not satisfying the strict eligibility requirements of Article II. If someone believes that today the “natural born Citizen” clause no longer serves any useful purpose, then the proper way to change or abandon it is by way of constitutional amendment under Article V of the Constitution, not by usurpation.

  1. We will win and the Republic will be restored. And the demise of the federal government will begin, as it should. I am beginning to think Obama has done us a huge favor…

  2. citizenwells

    I agree.

  3. So on Oil for Immigration…this report is in contradiction with the WND story that just came out??? Maybe Farah latched onto the dummy copy?

  4. Nancy Peacock

    These are the times that try men’s souls . . . that does bear repeating. I have a feeling that the natural born citizen issue is just the tip of the iceberg and we’re all in for a hell of ride before it’s over. Don’t lose faith. Stay focused, and eventually someone in a position of authority will take notice. We’re not crazy, but if the whole world is sane, I think I’d prefer to be crazy, as my grandmother used to say.

  5. Nancy Peacock

    Love the yard signs, Greg. Goes great with the bumper sticker Bend Over . . . your change is coming.

  8. ObamaSCARE Thugs do what they have the Bedmade Media Brownshirts saying that Conservatives are doing:


    Rush is talking about it now. Anyone have the video? If so please post.

  9. Nancy Peacock

    Greg, on your 57-second video, it seems that according to what BHO says, HE and Congress should shut up and get out of the way. But, he won’t. Maybe this “fishy” clip should be sent to the White House.

    Good to see you.

    I have been saying that all along. We don’t want to REMOVE O’JOKER too soon this is an opportunity to Destroy the Erosionist Party’s Ideology once and forever. It is Working.
    If he gets removed too quickly we will have the JFK effect of how great he would have been, combined with MLK. He would be a greater hero than both of them combined without havign accomplished ANYTHING of Value other then fooling fools with Forgery and Fraud to steal the Presidency.

    congratulations! Yours is the winning blog-comment o’the -day


    Why thank you! I am proud to receive this distinct honor amongst our Constitutional brethren. Cheers!

  14. Puzo is a very fine writer — a nice tonic in view o the rest we have to read: in quick summary, Medved is very mistaken — Corsi has mixed apples and oranges — Joe Farah is convinced that Stanley Ann could NOT be the mother — and the “Betrayal” keeps Orly’s KBC alive and kicking!

    A little gumshoe work yesterday took me to our university library —

    in quick summary: what is valid on the KBC: the use of “Coast” and “Coast Province” [the area was known by that term in British survey maps of Kenya (published in 1959); use of “Republic of Kenya” anytime after Jomo Kenyatta became “Prime Minister” (at least 1 year before be became “President,” which was 5 months before Independence was acknowledged in December 1964; and there is no financial obstacle to Barack Obama, Sr. traveling to Kenya in the summer of 1961 (during that turbulent year, Obama, Sr. political mentor, Tom Mboya, was holding huge, well-funded political rallies around the country on behalf of KANU, while his leader, Jomo Kenyatta was incarcerated by the British.

  15. magna & Jeff, I think my comment at 1:04PM was right up there…just sayin.

    ** New post **

  17. So according to BO – if you can’t say something nice – don’t talk !!!!!! how the tables turn . This underground swelling is turning into a sunami and its not party related any longer – The party in power is sticking their foot in the crap and inserting foot in mouth – let em keep on – my gut says they are done – emploding on themselves
    perseverence – and truth ! will prevail !

  18. And now for the…


    Today’s tip center’s around Constitutional grievances against CONgrass with regards to eligibility.

    As many of our non-representing representatives fail to abide by Section I of the Constitution, always preface all correspondence you send to your federal nitwits with something along the lines of:

    This is first and foremost a formal legal Constitutional grievance filed against you and your staff for failing to comply with Article I, Section 8 of the U.S. Constitution to “define and punish Piracies and Felonies committed on the high Seas, and Offences against the Law of Nations

    That should get their attention. Yep, you guessed it, de Vattel’s Law of Nations is specified in the Constitution.

  19. Apparently the transparency of the Obama administration has become a little more opaque. It would appear that his administration is carrying on a proposed treaty agreement originally initiated by the Bush administration We all know how much Obama blames all our current troubles on the Bush administration, Obama is just trying to fix the damage right? I think not.

    The Anti-Counterfeit Trade Agreement, ACTA, which in itself is confusing because of the many different uses for this particular acronym. What it is in reality is an international copyright treaty, at least in appearance. When one digs deeper one sees the potential for control of intellectual content of web based sites such as the Citizen Wells site. It would open anyone up to the prospect of any and all information on your personal computer to the scrutiny and control of the Federal government and possibly other participating world governments in turn. The chit chat from commenter to commenter could become an act of treason theoretically.

    This could mean no more open discussion of material that really needs an explanation as to context, content, and its subsequent affect on the course of events, which is what I am now doing, is it not? An end to dissent and freedom of speech, like Larry’s book for example. If the powers that be prohibit political debate, interrogatory interaction, political opinion, if the types of questions being asked at town hall meetings of our Congressional representatives are suddenly deemed subversive, we are in serious constitutional trouble.

    Those representing us in Washington D.C. no longer use the U.S. Constitution as a basis for enforcing or implementing law. This then leaves us open to the dictates of men and not law. The time has come to restore those constitutional provisions afforded us as and that this country was founded upon, liberty and justice. Those in Washington D.C who are supposedly representing the people took a solemn oath to uphold the Constitution of the United States of America. The time has come to see that they uphold their oaths or are removed from office, by impeachment if necessitated.

    The questions then would be what are the penalties for participating in freedom of speech and public dissent? This treaty information is so sensitive I’m having a difficult time just finding a copy of the actually text. Below is a link from 3/17/2009 that I got off of Pamela Geller’s site Atlas Shrugged:

    This was just posted on Atlas Shrugged:

    Obama will announce his mandatory civilian service on 911, his private army. Here come the Brown Shirts to quell dissent. Is this the advent of the fourth Reich?

    Here’s the link:


  20. TIDE IS TURNING ObamaSCARE is in trouble.

    When you have seniors with plenty of time on their hands and organization sskills PISSED and turn on you “Houston we have a Problem”. AARP will lose membership like CRAZY. Everyone cancel or encourage family to cancel MEMBERSHIP these Communists don’t deserve our money.

  24. Thanks CW, and Mario, I printed Why The Natural Born Citizen Clause of Our Constitution is Important…. I put it into a folder, to educate those in need of an Education. I was taught this in school, grant it was a Catholic School, smaller class sizes possibly, and this explains why I was taught it takes 2 American Parents on American soil, or if during a time of war other areas.
