Ted Cruz eligibility

Ted Cruz stated that he was born a citizen of the US. Prior to his presidential run announcement that could be considered the truth, depending on which immigration statute du jour that you look at and whether or not he complied with them.

Now that Cruz is running for president, it is misleading and therefore a lie.

He must be a natural born citizen to be president and that is defined in the US constitution and the definition at the time of ratification still applies. It has not been amended.

The US Supreme court has also not redefined the meaning of natural born citizen.

Why have so many in the media, as well as the Harvard Law Review been so quick to state that Cruz is eligible?

The answer is simple.

To protect Obama.

Obama had 1 US citizen parent and was born in who in the hell knows where.

Obama eligibility

Prior to Kerchner v Obama, the emphasis was on no proof of US birth for Obama, the missing authentic birth certificate (we still haven’t seen one).

In the initial filing of the lawsuit, the emphasis is on compliance with the original definition of natural born citizen, born to 2 US citizen parents on US soil.

For those who have not read it or want to revisit it.

CDR Charles F. Kerchner, et al v Barack Obama, et al.

“Obama’s Father Not a U.S. Citizen

44. Presumably Obama’s mother was a U.S. citizen at the time of his birth.
45. Obama’s father, Barack Obama Sr., at the time of Obama’s birth was a British subject/citizen subject to the jurisdiction of the United Kingdom, and would have handed down British citizenship to his son, Obama. Endnote 8.
46. Obama publicly admits his father was not a U.S. citizen and was a British
subject and then a Kenyan citizen when Kenya became an independent country.
47. Hence, at the time of his birth on August 4, 1961, Obama was born to a U.S.
citizen mother but not a U.S. citizen father.
48. Under the definition of an Article II “natural born Citizen,” Obama therefore
cannot be a “natural born Citizen.” Endnote 9.”

“That is why John Jay, who was a major writer in The Federalist Papers which
were critical in the ratification process of getting the Constitution approved, requested that the term be inserted into our Constitution. He was one of the founders who was very concerned about foreign influences being exerted on our new nation, especially on the President and Commander in Chief of the Army. He was not concerned about the loyalties of existing “original citizens” of the new country because they had openly fought for independence. And that is why the Article II grandfather clause is in there for them. But John Jay was very concerned about foreign influences on future Presidents and Commander in Chiefs. Thus he wrote the letter to General Washington. Washington
agreed and had the clause put in the Constitution and the delegates agreed and approved it and the “We the People” of those days voted for it and ratified it. And it can only be changed now by a new amendment by today’s “We the People.””

US Jobs

Citizen Wells has been reporting the real jobs situation and the decimation of white american jobs.

Here is another correlation to the jobs data.

From Citizen News March 31, 2015.

“Unauthorized aka illegal immigrants gain more white collar jobs”

From Pew Research March 26, 2015.

“In a reflection of changes in the overall economy since the Great Recession, the U.S. unauthorized immigrant workforce now holds fewer blue-collar jobs and more white-collar ones than it did before the 2007-2009 recession, but a solid majority still works in low-skilled service, construction and production occupations, according to new Pew Research Center estimates.”

“Unauthorized immigrants made up 5.1% of the nation’s labor force in 2012, numbering 8.1 million who were working or looking for work, according to previously published Pew Research estimates (Passel and Cohn, 2014). But as this new analysis shows, they account for a far higher share of the total workforce in specific jobs, notably farming (26%), cleaning and maintenance (17%), and construction (14%).”

Blagojevich

Speaking of protecting Obama.

We are still waiting on a ruling on the Rod Blagojevich appeal.

Why the hurry.

This has only been going on for almost 15 years from the time his administration first came under investigation by the feds through Blagojevich becoming poised to run for president until 2006 when he and Obama traded places, my belief that a deal was struck to protect Obama, his arrest after the 2008 election, 2 trials, numerous delays, hiding of evidence, an inordinate amount of elapsed time for an appeal decision…..

“Regardless of how this plays out, it benefits Obama. If there is no appeal or the appeal is denied, Blagojevich will be sequestered. If the appeal proceeds, it could drag out beyond impacting the 2012 election cycle. The intent is obvious.”…Citizen Wells, July 19, 2011

This sounds more like the old Soviet Union than what I remember of the US.

Donald Trump Obama’s Presidency May Be Illegal, Greta Van Susteren, Fox, Obama birth certificate, Natural born citizen, Eligibility

“Why has Obama, for over 2 years, employed numerous private and government attorneys to avoid presenting a legitimate birth certificate and college records?”…Citizen Wells and millions of concerned Americans

From World Net Daily March 29, 2011.

“Billionaire developer and possible Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is now suggesting Barack Obama’s presidency could be “illegal” if legitimate proof is not provided demonstrating the commander in chief is indeed a “natural born citizen” of the U.S.

Trump’s use of the “I” word came last night during a phone interview with Greta Van Susteren of the Fox News Channel.
“To be honest with you, I want him to have a birth certificate,” Trump said, “because [otherwise] that would mean that his presidency was, I guess you’d have to say, illegal. You have to be born in the United States. I hope that he was born in the United States. I hope – but I want to get ride of the word hope, I want to know for sure – I hope that he was born in the United States and I hope this doesn’t become a big issue.”
Trump defended so-called “birthers,” explaining, “They just want to see the president was born in this country.”

He also called into question Hawaii’s Democratic Gov. Neil Abercrombie for suggesting he remembered when Obama was born nearly a half century ago.

“I’ll bet he didn’t even know the parents 50 years ago,” Trump said. “I think it’s absolutely insane. What he’s doing is taking a bullet for the party by making a statement that, ‘I remember.'”

Trump also wondered why no doctors or nurses have come forward to announce their presence at Obama’s birth.

“Here’s the president of the United States, and no doctor, no nurse, nobody’s come forward saying, ‘I delivered that beautiful baby.'””

“Dear Rush, Glenn and Hannity:
I hope you will consider the following article written by Prof. Rice of Notre Dame Law School. 
 
This issue is not going away.  As a Veteran (Navy 75-80), I feel that anyone serving under Obama today is having his or her service tarnished and they don’t deserve this.

“Barack Obama: Is he or Isn’t he an American citizen?
Tuesday, March 01, 2011
By Charles E. Rice
 
The speculation about President Obama”s eligibility goes on and on, with no reliable access to the truth and with no end in sight. It is time for a new approach.

The Constitution provides: “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.” Art II, Sec. 1. Neither the Constitution nor any federal law defines the term “natural born citizen.” Nor has the Supreme Court provided a definition that covers the questions presented in the Obama case.

In Minor v. Happersett, in 1875, the Supreme Court, made an incidental reference to the issue: “[N]ew citizens may be born or they may be created by naturalization. The Constitution does not, in words, say who shall be natural-born citizens. Resort must be had elsewhere to ascertain that. At common-law, with the nomenclature of which the framers of the Constitution were familiar, it was never doubted that all children born in a country of parents who were its citizens became themselves, upon their birth, citizens also. These were natives, or natural-born citizens, as distinguished from aliens or foreigners. Some authorities go further and include as citizens children born within the jurisdiction without reference to the citizenship of their parents. As to this class there have been doubts, but never as to the first.” 88 U.S. 162, 167-68 (1875).”

“I suggest no conclusion as to whether Obama is eligible or not. But the citizens whom the media and political pundits dismiss as “birthers” have raised legitimate questions. That legitimacy is fueled by Obama”s curious, even bizarre, refusal to consent to the release of the relevant records. Perhaps there is nothing to the issues raised. Or perhaps there is. This is potentially serious business. If it turns out that Obama knew he was ineligible when he campaigned and when he took the oath as President, it could be the biggest political fraud in the history of the world. As long as Obama refuses to disclose the records, speculation will grow and grow without any necessary relation to the truth. The first step toward resolving the issue is full discovery and disclosure of the facts.

The courts are not the only entities empowered to deal with such a question. A committee of the House of Representatives could be authorized to conduct an investigation into the eligibility issue. The classic formulation of the Congressional role is Woodrow Wilson”s, in his 1884 book Congressional Government:

It is the proper duty of a representative body to look diligently into every affair of government and to talk much about what it sees. It is meant to be the eyes and the voice, and to embody the wisdom and will of its constituents. Unless Congress have and use every means of acquainting itself with the acts and the disposition of the administrative agents of the government, the country must be helpless to learn how it is being served; and unless Congress both scrutinize these things and sift them by every form of discussion, the country must remain in embarrassing, crippling ignorance of the very affairs which it is most important that it should understand and direct. The informing function of Congress should be preferred even to its legislative function…[T]he only really self-governing people is that people which discusses and interrogates its administration. (p. 198)”

“The American people do not know whether the current president achieved election by misrepresenting, innocently or by fraud, his eligibility for that office. I neither know nor suggest the answer to that question. But it would be a public service for the House of Representatives to employ its authority to determine those facts and to recommend any indicated changes in the law or the Constitution.”

Anyone falling into these categories is considered natural-born, and is eligible to run for President or Vice President. These provisions allow the children of military families to be considered natural-born, for example.”
==========
The above sentence is frequently used to justify calling Obama a natural born citizen.”

Clicking on the link yielded the following:

“Currently, Title 8 of the U.S. Code fills in the gaps left by the Constitution. Section 1401 defines the following as people who are “citizens of the United States at birth:”

•Anyone born inside the United States *
•Any Indian or Eskimo born in the United States, provided being a citizen of the U.S. does not impair the person’s status as a citizen of the tribe
•Any one born outside the United States, both of whose parents are citizens of the U.S., as long as one parent has lived in the U.S.
•Any one born outside the United States, if one parent is a citizen and lived in the U.S. for at least one year and the other parent is a U.S. national
•Any one born in a U.S. possession, if one parent is a citizen and lived in the U.S. for at least one year
•Any one found in the U.S. under the age of five, whose parentage cannot be determined, as long as proof of non-citizenship is not provided by age 21
•Any one born outside the United States, if one parent is an alien and as long as the other parent is a citizen of the U.S. who lived in the U.S. for at least five years (with military and diplomatic service included in this time)
•A final, historical condition: a person born before 5/24/1934 of an alien father and a U.S. citizen mother who has lived in the U.S.
* There is an exception in the law — the person must be “subject to the jurisdiction” of the United States. This would exempt the child of a diplomat, for example, from this provision.

Anyone falling into these categories is considered natural-born, and is eligible to run for President or Vice President. These provisions allow the children of military families to be considered natural-born, for example.”

Here is the actual code.

US Code Title 8 Section 1401

Nationals and Citizens of the United States at birth.
“The following shall be nationals and citizens of the United States at birth:

(a) a person born in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof;
(b) a person born in the United States to a member of an Indian, Eskimo, Aleutian, or other aboriginal tribe: Provided, That the granting of citizenship under this subsection shall not in any manner impair or otherwise affect the right of such person to tribal or other property;
(c) a person born outside of the United States and its outlying possessions of parents both of whom are citizens of the United States and one of whom has had a residence in the United States or one of its outlying possessions, prior to the birth of such person;
(d) a person born outside of the United States and its outlying possessions of parents one of whom is a citizen of the United States who has been physically present in the United States or one of its outlying possessions for a continuous period of one year prior to the birth of such person, and the other of whom is a national, but not a citizen of the United States;
(e) a person born in an outlying possession of the United States of parents one of whom is a citizen of the United States who has been physically present in the United States or one of its outlying possessions for a continuous period of one year at any time prior to the birth of such person;
(f) a person of unknown parentage found in the United States while under the age of five years, until shown, prior to his attaining the age of twenty-one years, not to have been born in the United States;
(g) a person born outside the geographical limits of the United States and its outlying possessions of parents one of whom is an alien, and the other a citizen of the United States who, prior to the birth of such person, was physically present in the United States or its outlying possessions for a period or periods totaling not less than five years, at least two of which were after attaining the age of fourteen years: Provided, That any periods of honorable service in the Armed Forces of the United States, or periods of employment with the United States Government or with an international organization as that term is defined in section 288 of title 22 by such citizen parent, or any periods during which such citizen parent is physically present abroad as the dependent unmarried son or daughter and a member of the household of a person
(A) honorably serving with the Armed Forces of the United States, or
(B) employed by the United States Government or an international organization as defined in section 288 of title 22, may be included in order to satisfy the physical-presence requirement of this paragraph. This proviso shall be applicable to persons born on or after December 24, 1952, to the same extent as if it had become effective in its present form on that date; and
(h) a person born before noon (Eastern Standard Time) May 24, 1934, outside the limits and jurisdiction of the United States of an alien father and a mother who is a citizen of the United States who, prior to the birth of such person, had resided in the United States.”

Philip J Berg, First Amended Complaint October 6, 2008.
“76. Obama, if born in Kenya would have made him a citizen of Kenya. Furthermore, because of the 1940 Naturalization Act, June 1952, Obama’s mother would have had to be nineteen (19) in order for Obama to be a “natural born” United States citizen.
Obama’s mother was only eighteen (18) when she had Obama and therefore was not old enough to meet the residency requirements under our laws at the time of Obama’s birth and be able to register her son’s birth as a “natural born” citizen.”

Now you know the truth, the facts regarding Obama’s Natural Born Citizen deficiency per the laws in place at the time of his birth somewhere.

HR 1503 revisited?, Presidential Eligibility Act, Brian Williams interview of Speaker Boehner, Williams says citizen, Natural Born Citizen

HR 1503 revisited?, Presidential Eligibility Act, Brian Williams interview of Speaker Boehner, Williams says citizen, Natural Born Citizen

“Why has Obama, for over 2 years, employed numerous private and government attorneys to avoid presenting a legitimate birth certificate and college records?”…Citizen Wells and millions of concerned Americans

Speaker of the House John Boehner was interviewed by Brian Williams last friday after the reading of the US Constitution in the House Chambers and the shout of “Except Obama, except Obama” when the Natural Born Citizen clause was read. Williams continues the Orwellian tradition of the mainstream media of obfuscating the Obama eligibility issues by using citizen instead of Natural Born Citizen. Boehner, as Speaker of the House, should know better and should have corrected Williams. Otherwise, we have just another Pelosi look alike.

At approx one minute Williams brings up the fact that twelve congressmen have challenged Obama’s eligibility. Apparently he was referring to HR 1503 that was initiated by Representative Posey with twelve cosponsors.

HR 1503, which expired with the end of the 111th Congress contained the following language:

“To amend the Federal Election Campaign Act of 1971 to require the principal campaign committee of a candidate for election to the office of President to include with the committee’s statement of organization a copy of the candidate’s birth certificate, together with such other documentation as may be necessary to establish that the candidate meets the qualifications for eligibility to the Office of President under the Constitution.”

http://www.opencongress.org/bill/111-h1503/text

Williams speaks in the present tense about the twelve congressmen. Is he referring to the 2009 bill or new initiatives?

John Boehner needs a quick tutoring on the US Constitution and the status of Obama eligibility questions. He did state that he would not tell the other congressmen what to think. That is good, but he can and must do better.

John Boehner, you just took the oath and read the US Constitution! The requirement for president is not citizen! It is Natural Born Citizen! And while we are at it, the State of Hawaii has not verified that Obama was born there!

From The Hill January 6, 2011.

“An individual who believes President Obama wasn’t born in the United States interrupted a House reading Thursday of the U.S. Constitution.”

“Birthers accuse Obama of not having been born in the U.S., despite the release of his birth certificate showing that he was born in Hawaii.”

“Update, 3:51 p.m.: In an interview to air this evening on NBC Nightly News, House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) reacted to the outburst and said he believed Obama is a U.S. citizen.
“The state of Hawaii has said that President Obama was born there,” Boehner said. “That’s good enough for me.””

“If I did that, I would be laughed out of Congress.”…Ron Paul, December 2008

 

All US citizens have a duty, an obligation to obey the law. The US Constitution is the supreme law of the land.

Congressmen, as elected officials, have a higher duty to uphold the law and the US Constitution.

We have a patriot Army Officer, LTC Terry Lakin, lanquishing in prison for doing his duty. Now we have a spectator in the US House being arrested and led away for doing her duty to obey the law, the US Constitution, which trumps any House of Representives rule of order. Ordinarily I might agree that someone disrupting the House proceedings should be led away and chastised. However, in this case, Theresa deserves a medal for shouting out “Except Obama, except Obama.” when Rep. Frank Pallone read the part of Article II, Section 1 mandating that only a “natural-born citizen” may be president.

Military officers and ordinary Americans are having to challenge “authority” because Congress did not do their job in January 2009.

“Counting Electoral Votes in Congress
Public Law 110-430 changed the date of the electoral vote in Congress in 2009 from January 6 to January 8. This date change is effective only for the 2008 presidential election.
The Congress meets in joint session to count the electoral votes (Congress may pass a law to change the date). The President of the Senate is the presiding officer. If a Senator and a House member jointly submit an objection, each House would retire to its chamber to consider it. The President and Vice President must achieve a majority of electoral votes (270) to be elected. In the absence of a majority, the House selects the President, and the Senate selects the Vice President. If a State submits conflicting sets of electoral votes to Congress, the two Houses acting concurrently may accept or reject the votes. If they do not concur, the votes of the electors certified by the Governor of the State would be counted in Congress.”

“Why I ask, should not the ‘injunctions and prohibitions’ addressed by

“The oath, the most solemn compact which man can make with his Maker,
was to bind the State Legislatures, executive officers, and judges to

“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the
Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and
domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same;
that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation
or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge

Congressional Oath of Office

Natural Born Citizen

Why Barack Obama must be challenged

US Constitution

“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.”

To understand the intent of the founding fathers in using the words
“natural born citizen”, to define presidential eligibility, one must
first examine any influential documents and opinions from those
involved in crafting the US Constitution. What is clear and indisputable
is the following:

  • A naturalized citizen is a citizen by no act of law such as naturalization.
  • A child born to US citizens on US soil is a natural born citizen.
  • The Naturalization Act of 1790 provided the following:

“the children of citizens of the United States that may
be born beyond Sea, or out of the limits of the United
States, shall be considered as natural born Citizens”

 
Vattel’s “The Law of Nations”, written in 1758, was a
valuable reference guide for the founding fathers.

Ҥ 212. Citizens and natives.
The citizens are the members of the civil society; bound to this society by
certain duties, and subject to its authority, they equally participate in
its advantages. The natives, or natural-born citizens, are those born in the
country, of parents who are citizens. As the society cannot exist and
perpetuate itself otherwise than by the children of the citizens, those
children naturally follow the condition of their fathers, and succeed to all
their rights. The society is supposed to desire this, in consequence of what
it owes to its own preservation; and it is presumed, as matter of course,
that each citizen, on entering into society, reserves to his children the
right of becoming members of it. The country of the fathers is therefore that
of the children; and these become true citizens merely by their tacit consent.
We shall soon see whether, on their coming to the years of discretion, they
may renounce their right, and what they owe to the society in which they were
born. I say, that, in order to be of the country, it is necessary that a
person be born of a father who is a citizen; for, if he is born there of a
foreigner, it will be only the place of his birth, and not his country.”

Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, Justice John Jay, on
July 25, 1787, wrote the following to George Washington:

“Permit me to hint, whether it would be wise and seasonable to provide
a strong check to the admission of Foreigners into the administration
of our national Government; and to declare expressly that the commander
in chief of the American army shall not be given to, nor devolve on any
but a natural born citizen.”

The Lightfoot lawsuit in CA states the obvious:

“This letter shows that the meaning of natural born citizen, is one
without allegiance to any foreign powers, not subject to any foreign
jurisdiction at birth.”

After the US Constitution was written, further
clarifications can be found

“All persons born in the United States and not subject to any foreign
power, excluding Indians not taxed, are declared to be citizens of the
United States.”

1866, Sec. 1992 of U.S. Revised

“every human being born within the jurisdiction of the United States of
parents not owing allegiance to any foreign sovereignty is, in the
language of your Constitution itself, a natural born citizen.”

Rep. Bingham on Section 1992 (Cong. Globe, 39th, 1st Sess., 1291 (1866))

“Bingham subscribed to the same view as most everyone in Congress at the
time that in order to be born a citizen of the United States one must be
born within the allegiance of the Nation. Bingham had explained that to
be born within the allegiance of the United States the parents, or more
precisely, the father, must not owe allegiance to some other foreign
sovereignty (remember the U.S. abandoned England’s “natural allegiance”
doctrine). This of course, explains why emphasis of not owing allegiance
to anyone else was the affect of being subject to the jurisdiction of the
United States.” Read more

United States v. Wong Kim Ark, March 28, 1898 Reveals the following:

“Nevertheless, Congress has persisted from 1795 in rejecting the English
rule and in requiring the alien who would become a citizen of the United
States, in taking on himself the ties binding him to our Government, to
affirmatively sever the ties that bound him to any other.”

“It is beyond dispute that the most vital constituent of the English
common law rule has always been rejected in respect of citizenship of
the United States.”

“Considering the circumstances surrounding the framing of the Constitution,
I submit that it is unreasonable to conclude that “natural-born citizen”
applied to everybody born within the geographical tract known as the United
States, irrespective of circumstances, and that the children of foreigners,
happening to be born to them while passing through the country, whether of
royal parentage or not, or whether of the Mongolian, Malay or other race,
were eligible to the Presidency, while children of our citizens, born abroad,
were not.”

“Greisser was born in the State of Ohio in 1867, his father being a German
subject and domiciled in Germany, to which country the child returned.
After quoting the act of 1866 and the Fourteenth Amendment, Mr. Secretary
Bayard said:

Richard Greisser was no doubt born in the United States, but he was on his
birth “subject to a foreign power,” and “not subject to the jurisdiction
of the United States.” He was not, therefore, under the statute and the
Constitution a citizen of the United States by birth, and it is not
pretended that he has any other title to citizenship.”

“And it was to prevent the acquisition of citizenship by the children of
such aliens merely by birth within the geographical limits of the United
States that the words were inserted.

Two months after the statute was enacted, on June 16, 1866, the Fourteenth
Amendment was proposed, and declared ratified July 28, 1868. The first
clause of the first section reads:

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.

The act was passed and the amendment proposed by the same Congress, and it
is not open to reasonable doubt that the words “subject to the jurisdiction
thereof” in the amendment were used as synonymous with the words “and not
subject to any foreign power” of the act.”

Perkins v Elg, 307 U.S. 325,328 (1939) differentiates between a US citizen
and a natural born citizen.  Ms. Elg, was born in Brooklyn, NY to an
American mother and a Swedish father was a US citizen, but not a natural
born citizen.

Leo Donofrio explains the basis for his lawsuit:

“The Framers distinguished between “natural born Citizens” and all other
“Citizens”.  And that’s why it’s important to note the 14th Amendment
only confers the title of “Citizen”, not “natural born Citizen”.  The
Framers were Citizens, but they weren’t natural born Citizens.  They
put the stigma of not being natural born Citizens on themselves in the
Constitution and they are the ones who wrote the Document.” 

“The chosen wording of the Framers here makes it clear that they had drawn
a distinction between themselves – persons born subject to British
jurisdiction – and “natural born citizens” who would not be born subject
to British jurisdiction or any other jurisdiction other than the United
States.  And so the Framers grandfathered themselves into the Constitution
as being eligible to be President.  But the grandfather clause only
pertains to any person who was a Citizen… at the time of the Adoption of
this Constitution.” 

“It should be obvious that the Framers intended to deny the Presidency to
anybody who was a British subject “at birth”. If this had not been their
intention, then they would not have needed to include a grandfather clause
which allowed the Framers themselves to be President.”

Application of Natural Born Citizen and Citizen to Barack Obama

Barack Obama was born to an American Mother and Kenyan Father.

Is Obama eligible under the Natural Born Citizen provision?

Philip Berg states:

“Even if Obama had and maintained United States citizenship (which Plaintiff
believes he failed to do) he also holds citizenship in Kenya and Indonesia.
Obama has divided loyalties with foreign countries. Thus, Obama carries
multiple citizenships, and is ineligible to run for President of the United
States. United States Constitution, Article II, Section I.”

Leo Donofrio states:

“Don’t be distracted by the birth certificate and Indonesia issues.  They
are irrelevant to Senator Obama’s ineligibility to be President.  Since
Barack Obama’s father was a Citizen of Kenya and therefore subject to the
jurisdiction of the United Kingdom at the time of Senator Obama’s birth,
then Senator Obama was a British Citizen “at birth”, just like the Framers
of the Constitution, and therefore, even if he were to produce an original
birth certificate proving he were born on US soil, he still wouldn’t be
eligible to be President.” 

“My law suit argues that since Obama had dual citizenship “at birth” and
therefore split loyalties “at birth”, he is not a “natural born citizen”
of the United States.  A “natural born citizen” would have no other
jurisdiction over him “at birth” other than that of the United States.
The Framers chose the words “natural born” and those words cannot be ignored. 
The status referred to in Article 2, Section 1, “natural born
citizen”, pertains to the status of the person’s citizenship “at birth”.”

“The other numerous law suits circling Obama to question his eligibility
fail to hit the mark on this issue.  Since Obama was, “at birth”, a
British citizen, it is completely irrelevant, as to the issue of
Constitutional “natural born citizen” status, whether Obama was born in
Hawaii or abroad.  Either way, he is not eligible to be President.  Should
Obama produce an original birth certificate showing he was born in Hawaii,
it will not change the fact that Obama was a British citizen “at birth”.” 

“Obama has admitted to being a British subject “at birth”.  And as will be
made perfectly clear below, his being subject to British jurisdiction
“at birth” bars him from being eligible to be President of the United States.”

Lightfoot lawsuit

“Mr. Obama is a son of a citizen of Kenya, that in 1961 was a British
protectorate, whereby regardless of whether he was born in Kenya or US, he
was a foreign citizen based on his fathers citizenship, he was a subject of
a foreign power and foreign jurisdiction and does not qualify as a natural
born citizen.”

“In adherence to the natural born citizen provision, the first presidents
of this country, such as George Washington and John Adams, that were born on
this soil, in Virginia and Massachussetts respectively, had to include an
additional constitution provision in addition to the natural born citizen,
“…or a citizen of the United States, at the time of the adoption of this
Constitution…”, in order to allow themselves, as Britizh subjects at the
time of their birth to be sworn as Presidents.  Since Mr. Obama is not 221
years old and was not a US citizen at the time of the Constitution, he, as a
British citizen at birth does not fall under this provision and does not
qualify as a natural born citizen and is not eligible to become the President
regardless of whether he was born in Kenya or Hawaii.”

Barack Obama is not a Natural Born Citizen

It is clear from the above that Obama is not eligible to be president.
For there to even be a ruling contrary to the letter and spirit of the
law, Obama must at least prove that he was a citizen of the US at birth.
This means that Obama would have to prove that he was born in Hawaii.

Unless Obama can prove he was born in Hawaii, he is in fact not a US
citizen and is an illegal alien

At this point, no legal proof of Obama being born in Hawaii has been
provided. The Hawaiian Health Dept. official stated:

STATEMENT BY DR. CHIYOME FUKINO

“There have been numerous requests for Sen. Barack Hussein Obama’s official
birth certificate. State law (Hawai‘i Revised Statutes §338-18) prohibits
the release of a certified birth certificate to persons who do not have a
tangible interest in the vital record.

“Therefore, I as Director of Health for the State of Hawai‘i, along with
the Registrar of Vital Statistics who has statutory authority to oversee
and maintain these type of vital records, have personally seen and verified
that the Hawai‘i State Department of Health has Sen. Obama’s original birth
certificate on record in accordance with state policies and procedures.

“No state official, including Governor Linda Lingle, has ever instructed
that this vital record be handled in a manner different from any other vital
record in the possession of the State of Hawai‘i.”

According to Philip Berg:

“There are records of a “registry of birth” for
Obama, on or about August 8, 1961 in the public records office in Hawaii.”

So, how is it possible to not be born in Hawaii and yet have a
birth certificate record in Hawaii?

[§338-17.8]  Certificates for children born out of State. 
(a)  Upon application of an adult or the legal parents of a minor child,
the director of health shall issue a birth certificate for such adult or
minor, provided that proof has been submitted to the director of health
that the legal parents of such individual while living without the
Territory or State of Hawaii had declared the Territory or State of Hawaii
as their legal residence for at least one year immediately preceding the
birth or adoption of such child.

(b)  Proof of legal residency shall be submitted to the director of health
in any manner that the director shall deem appropriate.  The director of
health may also adopt any rules pursuant to chapter 91 that he or she may
deem necessary or proper to prevent fraudulent applications for birth
certificates and to require any further information or proof of events
necessary for completion of a birth certificate.

(c)  The fee for each application for registration shall be established
by rule adopted pursuant to chapter 91. [L 1982, c 182, §1] Hawaii statute

From the Keyes lawsuit:

“A press release was issued on October 31, 2008, by the Hawaii Department
of Health by its Director, Dr. Chiyome Fukino. Dr. Fukino said that she
had “personally seen and verified that the Hawaii State Department of
Health has Senator Obama’s original birth certificate on record in
accordance with state policies and procedures.” That statement failed to
resolve any of the questions being raised by litigation and press accounts.
Being “on record” could mean either that its contents are in the computer
database of the department or there is an actual “vault” original.”

“Further, the report does not say whether the birth certificate in the
“record” is a Certificate of Live Birth or a Certificate of Hawaiian Birth.
In Hawaii, a Certificate of Live Birth resulting from hospital documentation,
including a signature of an attending physician, is different from a
Certificate of Hawaiian Birth. For births prior to 1972, a Certificate of
Hawaiian Birth was the result of the uncorroborated testimony of one witness
and was not generated by a hospital. Such a Certificate could be obtained up
to one year from the date of the child’s birth. For that reason, its value
as prima facie evidence is limited and could be overcome if any of the
allegations of substantial evidence of birth outside Hawaii can be obtained.
The vault (long Version) birth certificate, per Hawaiian Statute 883.176
allows the birth in another State or another country to be registered in
Hawaii. Box 7C of the vault Certificate of Live Birth contains a question,
whether the birth was in Hawaii or another State or Country. Therefore,
the only way to verify the exact location of birth is to review a certified
copy or the original vault Certificate of Live Birth and compare the name of
the hospital and the name and the signature of the doctor against the
birthing records on file at the hospital noted on the Certificate of the
Live Birth.”

If Obama was born in kenya, his mother had to be nineteen years
old for Obama to be a US citizen. Berg explains:

“If in fact Obama was born in Kenya, the laws on the books at the time of
his birth stated if a child is born abroad and one parent was a U.S. Citizen,
which would have been his mother, Stanley Ann Dunham, Obama’s mother would
have had to live ten (10) years in the United States, five (5) of which were
after the age of fourteen (14). At the time of Obama’s birth, his mother was
only eighteen (18) and therefore did not meet the residency requirements under
the law to give her son (Obama) U.S. Citizenship. The laws in effect at the
time of Obama’s birth prevented U.S. Citizenship at birth of children born
abroad to a U.S. Citizen parent and a non-citizen parent, if the citizen
parent was under the age of nineteen (19) at the time of the birth of the
child. Obama’s mother did not qualify under the law on the books to register
Obama as a “natural born” citizen. Section 301(a)(7) of the Immigration and
Nationality Act of June 27, 1952, 66 Stat. 163, 235, 8 U.S.C. §1401(b),
Matter of S-F- and G-, 2 I & N Dec. 182 (B.I.A.) approved (Att’y Gen. 1944).”

 Under the best case scenario for Obama, he is a US citizen, not natural
born, and the worst case scenario, Obama is an illegal alien. If Obama
was born in Kenya, he is an illegal alien.

At the time of Obama’s birth, he was a Kenyan citizen and under British
rule. For there to be a ruling on Obama’s potential eligibility for the
presidency based on being a natural born citizen, Obama must provide proof
that he was also a US citizen at birth and that would require proof that
he was born in Hawaii. To date, no legal proof has been provided. In fact,
every effort has been made by Obama to avoid proving his eligibility. He
has spent hundreds of thousands of dollars and employed numerous attorneys
to evade his dubious past.

Obama must provide a vault (long form) birth certificate to prove he is
not an illegal alien. Think about it. We know that Obama is not eligible
under the US Constitution.

Are we going to let him steal the presidency as an illegal alien?
