providing insights into Presidential eligibility and verification~
an amalgam of original essays and comments
by a.r. nash and others, from many web sources, covering the Constitution, history, philosophy, the law, and the birth certificates. You’ll find here insights found no where else, and an aggregation of information like no other site contains.
“There is a time for all things, a time to preach and a time to pray, but those times have passed away. There is a time to fight, and that time has now come.” – Peter Muhlenberg
—Adolf Hitler , Mein Kampf, vol. I, ch. X
“All this was inspired by the principle–which is quite true within itself–that in the big lie there is always a certain force of credibility; because the broad masses of a nation are always more easily corrupted in the deeper strata of their emotional nature than consciously or voluntarily; and thus in the primitive simplicity of their minds they more readily fall victims to the big lie than the small lie, since they themselves often tell small lies in little matters but would be ashamed to resort to large-scale falsehoods. It would never come into their heads to fabricate colossal untruths, and they would not believe that others could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously. Even though the facts which prove this to be so may be brought clearly to their minds, they will still doubt and waver and will continue to think that there may be some other explanation. For the grossly impudent lie always leaves traces behind it, even after it has been nailed down, a fact which is known to all expert liars in this world and to all who conspire together in the art of lying.” ~ ~ ~
“The sacred rights of mankind are not to be rummaged for among old parchments or musty records. they are written, as with a sunbeam, in the whole volume of human nature, by the hand of the divinity itself, and can never be erased or obscured by mortal power.”
Alexander Hamilton, “The Farmer Refuted”, February 5, 1775.
“As democracy is perfected, the office of the President represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day, the plain folks of the land will reach their heart’s desire at last, and the White House will be occupied by a downright fool and a complete narcissistic moron.”
H.L. Mencken, The Baltimore Evening Sun, July 26, 1920.
Those who seek the truth should remember Joseph Story’s admonition that acceptable constitutional construction “can never abrogate the text; it can never fritter away its obvious sense; it can never narrow down its limitations; it can never enlarge its natural boundaries.”

CONFLICTING PRINCIPLES DEFINING NATURAL BORN CITIZENS
Don’t visit “American Sod” (sowing the seeds-Of-Destruction) unless you can handle a big dose of reality. http://americansod.wordpress.com/
The presidential qualification (“natural born citizen,”) was reported out of Committee on September the 4th , 1787, and adopted in the Constitution.
The Federalist contains a contemporary comment on it written by Alexander Hamilton. It reads:
“Nothing was more to be desired, than that every practicable obstacle should be opposed to cabal, intrigue, and corruption. These most deadly adversaries of Republican government, might naturally have been expected to make their approaches from more than one quarter, but chiefly from the desire in foreign powers to gain an improper ascendant in our councils.
How could they better gratify this, than by raising a creature of their own to the chief magistracy of the Union?”
Natural Citizenship is not defined by anyone’s “common sense” but by Natural Law and Natural Law alone. It is not Natural Law melded, blended, amalgamated, fused, grafted, or combined with border-based human law nationality mandates.
That is a bastardization of Natural Law, a freaky Frankenstein, Siamese twins combo of the natural with the unnatural.
No where in the history of the world has there ever been such a fusion of jus soli and jus sanguinis. It is as unnatural as a melding of dogs & cats, Angels & Devils. It is nothing more than a fantasy dogma, -or as James Madison described it “a visionary principle” not grounded in any reality. A. Nash

When Is A Citizen Not A Citizen? by Cindy Simpson
Alexander Hamilton & John Jay’s Letter to Washington by John Woodman
There are several pertinent questions that people fail to ask, such as: By what principle is John McCain a natural born citizen even though not a native-born citizen?
By what principle could Obama be a U.S. citizen, and is it the same principle as that by which McCain is a natural born citizen?
Would Obama be a U.S. citizen if he had been born in a foreign location like John McCain?
Is Obama’s presidential eligibility not affected by his parentage while McCain’s was?
Can birth as a subject of a foreign sovereign nation make one a natural American citizen?
No person whose U.S. citizenship is derived from any legal source is a natural born American. Any legal citizenship, including constitutional citizenship, is artificial citizenship because it is not the product of natural law, but of human law, it’s membership-by-permission. No one whose citizenship is by permission of the government is eligible to be the President of the United States. The citizenship of natural citizens is beyond the authority of the government. It cannot bestow it, nor rescind it, nor regulate it, nor infringe upon it. The unalienable nature of natural citizenship supersedes the legitimate authority of all human forms of legitimate government because the right of the government to exist is granted by the will and choice of natural citizens, -not the other way around.
Obama was a provisional Commonwealth subject via birth in wedlock (?) to a named British subject father. By not renouncing his American citizenship as an adult, his connection to Kenya thereby expired, along with his Commonwealth membership. His Indonesian citizenship via adoption also was provisional if he did not live in Indonesia, requiring that he renew his Indonesian passport every two years following the first renewal at four years. That was something that he would have done because it was his only form of official government identification since he had no birth certificate from any nation.
NEW: Feb. 2014: It is a mistake to assume the Lolo Soetoro adopted Barry Obama under Hawaiian law even though he had a year to do so before returning to Indonesia. It is also a mistake to think that the “original” birth certificate reveals it was amended to show a legal change of parentage which would have named Lolo as Barry’s father. Such a secret is NOT what Obama has been hiding because no such alteration of the original Certificate of Live Birth would have been made because of Barry’s age at adoption (not an infant). Adoption is only secret if the birth mother wants to keep her identity secret, which is only the case soon after birth, -not 6 years or 16 years.
The reasons that these three presumptions (birth in Hawaii, existence of a Hawaiian birth certificate, and adoption in Hawaii under its laws) are false is due to the fact that Barry’s mother was not able to acquire a Hawaiian birth certificate for him since the home-birth claim she made in an affidavit to the Dept. of Health could not be corroborated by evidence, as required, that she had lived for one year in Hawaii.
That would be totally impossible if she spent the last couple months of her pregnancy in Seattle (seeking an adoptive couple) where she registered for college just two weeks after giving birth .
Without such proof, no birth certificate could be legally issued. But assuming that a birth certificate was issued, Lolo would have no motive or need to adopt him under Hawaiian law since he was going to live in and grow up in Indonesia as his son.
Why not just adopt him in Indonesia since he could do that after returning there, even in the absence of Barry? Or, better still, adopt him in Hawaii but through the Indonesian Embassy?
Who knows any reason why he could not and would not have done that? That would have given little identity-less Barry official ID, which he lacked due to having no birth certificate. The Embassy might have had to bend a rule or two but that’s how human affairs are conducted.
His mother could have shown them their marriage certificate and filled out an affidavit as evidence that she was his mother and guardian. No problem. Instant Indonesian citizenship, -the passport to his future identity being, literally, *a passport* from a foreign country which he obtained in order to return to Hawaii at age 7 or 8 for a Christmas visit, and later at 10 for good.
He then would have obtained a permanent resident Green Card, for which proof would still exist if it hasn’t been purged from the archive. Plus, his grandparents would have obtained legal custody in order to be his legal guardians. ~ ~ ~
Obama’s narrative is that he was not born abroad but born in Honolulu of an alien father. That fact, like the 14th Amendment, comes with additional baggage besides native-birth and it concerns those who were not subject to the full jurisdiction of the U.S. government that rules over all citizens and immigrants. His father, like foreign diplomats, tourists, and all forms of guests of the U.S. government (i.e. transient Visa Card holders, -not Green Card holders) was not subject to that authority and could not be drafted as can citizens and immigrants, thus his son was born also not subject to it through him as a British subject under the protection of British law, as well as international laws and treaties.
Thus, with foreign birth not acknowledged, provisional U.S. citizenship was not a possibility since it does not pertain to anyone born on U.S. soil, and… was also not possible because U.S. nationality law at that time required that his mother be 19 years of age and she was only 18 when he was born.
Barack Obama admited he was born a British citizen on his “paid for by Barack Obama” fightthesmears,com website (now shutdown): “When Barack Obama Jr. was born on the 4th of August, 1961, Kenya was a British colony, still part of the United Kingdom’s dwindling empire. As a Kenyan native, Barack Obama Sr. was a British subject whose citizenship status was governed by The British Nationality Act of 1948. That same act governed the status of Obama Sr.‘s children.”
You know if you read the Civil Rights Act of 1866 it makes amply clear that someone who was born “not subject to any foreign power” was a US Citizen.
Now Obama admits he was subject to a foreign power at birth.
1866 Civil Rights Act 14 Stat. 27-30, April 9, 1866 A.D. CHAP. XXXI.
“An Act to protect all Persons in the United States in their Civil Rights, and furnish the Means of their Vindication.
Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That all persons born in the United States and not subject to any foreign power, excluding Indians not taxed, are hereby declared to be citizens of the United States;…”
It’s crystal clear that if in 1866 a person of dual citizenship was not a US Citizen, then by all means in 1776 the founders would not consider a person who was not even a citizen to be a natural born citizen!!
Obama Agrees That Natural Citizenship Requires both Parents Be Citizens: Senate Resolution 511 2008
“Whereas John Sidney McCain, III, was born to American citizens on an American military base in the Panama Canal Zone in 1936: Now, therefore, be it Resolved, That John Sidney McCain, III, is a `natural born Citizen’ under Article II, Section 1, of the Constitution of the United States.”–Barack Obama, co-sponsor
At the peak of the Rev, Wright flare-up, Obama played his Michelle trump card. “I am married to a black American who carries within her the blood of slaves and slave owners,” he boasted in his bellwether speech on race, “an inheritance we pass on to our two precious daughters.”
What if Barry O. had married a Kenyan woman? Would he have been viewed as presidential candidate material then? What kind of citizen would he have been viewed as, natural? or something else? What if he had married a white woman? Would he have been viewed as presidential candidate material then? How many black women would have voted for him? What if his mother had been the Kenyan wife of his father? What kind of citizen would he have been viewed as then? Natural? or something else? But what difference would it have really made? Well, he wouldn’t have been a citizen at all through his mother nor able to pull off the greatest deception since traitors in the upper management levels of the FBI and CIA were discovered.
“Laws are made for men of ordinary understanding and should, therefore, be construed by the ordinary rules of common sense.” –Thomas Jefferson
In Dec. 2011 I discovered that NATURALIZED, NATIVE-BORN, and NATURAL BORN ARE DISTINCT in the official Immigration Service website which includes Attorney General Interpretations of Supreme Court decisions and Congressional Naturalization law.
I shared what I discovered with attorney Leo Donofrio . Read his response on his blog NaturalBornCitizen (Since Leo Donofrio no longer publishes comments to his site, I’ll publish my own comments in reply here. ) It states the following:
UPDATE: THE PAGE HAS BEEN MOVED ON THE CIS WEBSITE! The page displayed now states:
404 – Requested Page Not Found on Site
This was the url perhaps for many years, possible a decade: http://www.uscis.gov/ilink/docView/SLB/HTML/SLB/0-0-0-1/0-0-0-45104/0-0-0-48602.htm
But the puppet-masters changed its address so the link that I’d found would no longer lead to it. But by using the site’s search function I was able to relocate it.
Also, even though the CONSPIRATORS in Obama’s inner circle altered the CIS website, the internet archive site “the WayBack Machine” has it recorded. Here’s its copy of the moved page: http://web.archive.org/web/20110711184242/http://www.uscis.gov/ilink/docView/SLB/HTML/SLB/0-0-0-1/0-0-0-45104/0-0-0-48602.html (the rats are on the run)
The pertinent sentence is the second-to-last stand-alone sentence.
Interpretation 324.2 Reacquisition of citizenship lost by marriage.
(7) Restoration of citizenship is prospective . Restoration to citizenship under any one of the three statutes is not regarded as having erased the period of alienage that immediately preceded it. ["paragraph 6"] but to restore the person to the status if NATURALIZED, NATIVE or NATURAL-BORN CITIZEN, as determined by her status prior to loss.
Natural citizens can be born anywhere in the world because their parents are Americans, but “native-born” citizens, with immigrant parents, must be born in the U.S. or else the 14th Amendment does not apply to them. They are constitutional citizens by the grace of the American people who passed the 14th Amendment, whereas natural citizens are citizens by nature and no law grants, governs, regulates, restricts or defines their citizenship. It doesn’t come from government. It precedes government. Government can’t exist without naturally connected members to create it.
Natural citizenship is bestowed as an unalienable natural right just like Life, Liberty and and many others, including the right to marry and divorce, own and inherit property. The Bill of Rights was written to protect and declare rights undeclared in the body of the Constitution, and one of those undeclared rights is the inherited citizenship of children born to Americans without regard to where they are born.
“There are only two classes of citizens of the United States, native-born citizens and naturalized citizens; and a citizen who did not acquire that status by birth in the United States is a naturalized citizen. Zimmer v. Acheson, 191 F. 2d 209, 211 (10th Cir. 1951) “
There are actually five classes of citizens: 1. the natural born citizens, -who are one type of “born citizen”, 2. the native-born citizens who are born to foreign immigrants, also describe by me as constitutional citizens via the 14th Amendment) 3. the naturalized citizens, and 4. the derivative citizens who are automatically naturalized (children and wives of newly naturalized fathers, -or foreign brides marrying American husbands, -no longer the policy in the U.S.) 5. Provisional citizens; children born abroad to foreign fathers. Their citizenship will become permanent but with the provision that they live x number of years in the U.S. during their youth.
There are eight types of people in America; natural American citizens, naturalized American citizens, American Nationals, Native Americans without US citizenship, legal immigrants, illegal immigrants, foreign guests and diplomats, and children of unions of various combinations of the preceding groups,
There are seven types of children born in America; children born to natural citizens, children born to naturalized citizens, children born to legal immigrants, children born to illegal immigrants, children born to American nationals, and children born to foreign guests and diplomats, and those with mixed parentage combining the preceding groups.
U.S. CONSTITUTION Article 2, Section 1, Clause 5
“No person except a natural born Citizen…shall be eligible to the Office of the President,…”

The TEN RULES of Natural & Naturalized Citizenship
1. No American is a natural American unless born to American parents.
2. Only children of American parents are eligible to be President.
3. American parents produce natural American children regardless of where they’re born.
4. No American can father a child that’s a natural citizen of a foreign nation -even if born within that foreign nation, nor can a foreigner beget a natural citizen of a nation foreign to him, (such as the United States) even though his child may be born within its borders.
5. No one born to a foreign Diplomat, Ambassador, Consul, soldier, visitor, tourist, worker, professor, or student is constitutionally an American citizen because he is what his father is, and his father is a foreigner who lives in a foreign nation and remains subject to its foreign jurisdiction, -not that of the United States. As such, his child is not covered by the 14th Amendment.
6. A foreigner, whether immigrant or non-immigrant, cannot father a natural American because his children will either be foreign citizens only or be both foreign and native-born naturalized-at-birth U.S. citizens. They won’t be native-born natural American citizens free of any alien nationality by blood.
7. Anyone “native born” but with legal immigrant parents is a citizen by 14th Amendment automatic naturalization, having their foreign citizenship overlaid with naturalized American citizenship. They are dual citizens.
8. Citizenship acquired by naturalization, (whether automatically or via process) is not natural citizenship because it was not naturally acquired. Rather, it’s acquired via legal mean through the laws & policies of the nation.
9. No foreigner who’s subject to the jurisdiction of a foreign government, (nor one who is subject to the jurisdiction of the U.S. government), can father a constitutionally eligible candidate for President because his children come into the world with foreign alienage attached to them.
10. No one born with foreign alienage is eligible to be President because they are/were dual citizens, not natural citizens, and are “tainted” with non-American foreignness.
Obama’s father was a foreigner who was not an American immigrant, but even if he had been, his son still would not be a natural born American because his father would be an un-naturalized foreigner, -not an American father, making him only a constitutional naturalized citizen and not a natural citizen. Any person with such citizenship is constitutionally ineligible to hold the Office of the President. Barack Obama, if such a citizen, would consequently be an unconstitutional President.
The Ten Rules of Natural Law Membership & Citizenship
1. Everyone possess a natural right to be accepted as an equal member of the group into which they are born.
2. No one possesses a natural right to be accepted as an equal member of any group into which he or she is not born.
3. No natural group has a right to decide that the children of its natural members are not members.
4. All natural groups have the right to decide when, how and why non-members are allowed to join their group
5. All natural groups have a right to decide that the children of non-members are not members, even if born within the group’s territory.
6. The location of one’s birth conveys no natural right whatsoever.
7. No non-member who inhabits the land of a group other than his own and does so without the permission of the group, possesses any natural right to the full protection of the group in regard to defense against enemies or the violation of rights possessed by the members.
8. Only non-members who have the official permission of the group to live among them are covered by the protections of the group’s rules.
9. Children born to non-members are not natural native members of the group because they come from a mixed-blood or a foreign-blood origin.
10. Children who are not natural native members of the group, but are given permission to be members, possess no natural right to be equally eligible to be the Chief of the group. Only natural members possess that right which they inherit from their member parents.
No one who is not a natural citizen of the United States, -who was not born to American parents, -who was born with mixed-blood or fully-foreign blood connections to a foreign power and is considered one of that foreign nations natural members through the father, is eligible to be entrusted with the knowledge of, access to, keys to and codes to nuclear weapons. No nuclear nation on earth allows dual-citizens such access and permissions.
If immigrant parents from the former Soviet Union (or Iran) had received legal residence in the U.S. and produced children here who were constitutional citizens via the 14th Amendment, those children would never be allowed into the inner circle of Americans entrusted with the keys and launch codes for American nuclear-armed ICBMs, nor allowed to be a member of a nuclear submarine, nor a nuclear bomber squadron. They would fail the test of possessing the necessary background criteria of full American parentage and American roots. They would never be trusted like natural American citizens are trusted.
Yet the people of America placed into the position of Commander-in-Chief of all American military and nuclear might someone who could never be qualified to be a commander, nor even a crewmen, of any of our nuclear forces. He wouldn’t even be trusted to serve to protect the President with a loaded weapon. Thus, Barack Obama could never pass the requirements of natural US citizenship via birth to American parents which is required to guard himself as President.
Obama’s citizenship is not via the 14th Amendment as written because when it was written his citizenship would have been viewed as being solely that of his British-subject father. His father could not produce a child that was not subject to the same jurisdiction as himself, which, not being an immigrant, was British, not American. Since he was only a transient alien here on a Visa and not a legally sanctioned immigrant his son was born as a British subject of the United Kingdom and Colonies (UKC subject).
Obama appeared with a highly questionable and almost mysterious citizenship, with a mysterious past, with a mysterious fake non-physical birth certificate, with mysterious hidden collegiate records and accomplishments, with a private, guarded law practice, law student/ law professor records, with mysterious friends with subversive backgrounds yet wants us all to just trust him and give him another chance to wreck the country further for another four years.
SEVEN LIES THAT ELECTED AN UNCONSTITUTIONAL PRESIDENT
Ignorance is everywhere, -the deception universal.
The delusion infects all minds that are not seeking the truth.
SEVEN LIES that perpetuate Obama’s illegitimacy.
Lie #1. Anyone born in the U.S. is a citizen from birth.
Lie #2 Anyone who’s a citizen from birth and can prove it is a natural born citizen.
Lie #3. Anyone with a State birth certificate is “officially” eligible to be President.
Lie #4. Only naturalized citizens are ineligible to be President.
Lie#5. All “born citizens” are alike, whether born to foreigners or Americans.
Lie#6. Constitutional citizenship, and natural citizenship are indistinguishable .
Lie#7. Foreigners can be President if they’re born in the United States.
Ignorance? Stupidity? Group-think? A combination of the three? These delusions are so wide-spread that it’s unrealistic to assume that a great teacher will appear to make the American public aware of the truth.
Delegates at the Constitutional Convention who were concerned with:
“admitting strangers into our public Councils,” and feared that
“foreigners without a long residency in the country …
bring with them, not only attachments to other countries,
but ideas of Govt. so distinct from ours that in every point of view they are dangerous.”
A Presidential Eligibility Primer Regarding Citizenship
~Guidelines for Presidential Candidates~
~Seven Truths About Eligibility
1. The Constitution bars anyone with only foreign citizenship from being the President.
2. The Constitution bars anyone not born with American citizenship from being President.
3. The Constitution bars anyone with a father who is/was a foreigner from being President.
4. The Constitution bars all immigrant naturalized citizens from being the President.
5. The Constitution bars any mere “native-born citizen” from being President.
6. The Constitution bars all but a “natural born citizen” from being President.
7. The Constitution requires age discrimination & residency discrimination.
These facts demolish the legitimacy of Barack Obama as an eligible candidate for the presidency.
He inherited only a British nationality from his father, he wasn’t “a born citizen” by being born in the U.S. because he was not subject to the jurisdiction of the United States through his father (as required by the 14th Amendment) but instead was subject to the jurisdiction of Britain. Only American citizens and legal “Green Card” permanent residents are subject to U.S. jurisdiction, -not foreign tourists, diplomats, visitors, or students.
In summation: no citizenship from his father, no citizenship from his mother, no citizenship from the 14th Amendment, and no natural citizenship via any of the above.
The truth is what determines the legitimacy of the presidency of Barack Obama, and it is not on his side. He has not even attempted to provide any authentic authoritative and truthful refutation regarding the nature of his citizenship at birth, nor the authenticity of the birth document images that have been concocted on his behalf, which were not the product of the State of Hawaii, since no state in America releases digital image files as authentic birth evidence because digital files can be manipulated and counterfeited with ease on any computer, just like printing counterfeit money is now so easy to do (except for the extraordinary anti-counterfeiting measures that are now employed). Instead he has declared that he was born subject to British jurisdiction. Therefore he would not have even been a U.S. citizen of any type for most of American history.
UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION, Article II, Section 1
The executive Power shall be vested in a President of the United States of America. No person except a natural born Citizen… shall be eligible to the Office of the President.
ONLY NATURAL BORN CITIZENS ARE ELIGIBLE
Emmerich de Vattel in The Law of Nations Bk 1 Sec. 212, states the following:
“Citizens and natives: The natural [members] or natives, [Les naturels ou les indigenes] are those born in the country of parents who are its citizens. As a 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.
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. 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.”
It is a misunderstanding and misapplication of the word “natural” to ascribe place-of-birth to its meaning. In the Natural realm the pro-creation of a natural off-spring does not depend on place of birth, but only on two things, which are: two parents of the same species.
It’s the same in the political realm. A natural citizen only needs two things; namely, a mother and father of the same nationality.
Natural Natives only come from Natives.
Natural Citizens only come from Citizens
What do we know about the circumstances of Barack Obama’s origins? The nature of his U.S. citizenship is rooted in the circumstances of his birth and parentage. His eligibility for the office of President hinges on whether or not he can be described as a natural born citizen.
While that phrase, as used in the Constitution’s Presidential requirements, could be claimed to have a general meaning as well as a Constitutional meaning, no Supreme Court has ever ruled on the issue regarding any President’s eligibility, but if one did, they would have to decide whether or not to ascribed a broader general meaning or the limited meaning which the framers had in mind.
They had in mind only one thing, and that is a citizen with no connection of attachment to any foreign power, -no loyalty-allegiance to, nor inherited citizenship with a foreign potentate, nation or geo-political group. Citizens with foreign fathers and dual-citizenship, with the resultant dual allegiance and duties of nationality, were not to be entrusted with the most powerful office in the land.
Hence, only those born to American citizens, in particular an American father (from whom citizenship was inherited by birthright) -having no connection to a foreign power, were allowed to hold the office of the President (and later, by Constitutional amendment, the Vice-President as well).
No other form of citizenship was sufficient. No son of a loyal subject of a foreign King, whose wife happened to deliver on U.S. soil, was to be allowed to hold the office of President, especially one raised in his father’s country to be a proud subject and supporter of His Royal Highness and a believer in his infallibility and Divine appointment to power.
Hence, without an American father one cannot be considered to be a natural American citizen because the only citizenship that could be viewed as natural was the citizenship passed naturally from the parents to the children. To learn more read my treatise on Birthright Citizenship.
Obama was born as a British subject by descent from a father born in a land governed by Great Britain.
Applying the British Nationality Act of 1948 to the accepted claim that Barack Obama Jr. was fathered by Barack Obama Sr. the deduction is that Jr. was born as a Citizen of the United Kingdom and Colonies (-a type of British subject which later became by The British Nationality Act of 1981 a “British Overseas Citizen” or a citizen of the Commonwealth).
Who is a British “citizen by descent”? The British Consular Registry determines that which defines one by this section: Section 5-1
5.—(1) Subject to the provisions of this section, a person born after the commencement of this Act shall be a citizen of the United Kingdom and Colonies by descent if his father is a citizen of the United Kingdom and Colonies at the time of the birth.
Then in 1963, Obama became a Kenyan citizen according to The Constitution of Kenya, Section 87, by virtue of the fact that his father was born in the Kenya colony. “Every person who, having been born outside Kenya, is on llth December, 1963, as a citizen of the United Kingdom and Colonies or a British protected person, shall, if his father becomes, or would but for his death have become, a citizen of Kenya by virtue of subsection (1), become a citizen of Kenya on 12th December, 1963.”
Thus, Obama Jr. became a citizen of Kenya, Dec. 12, 1963, when his father became a citizen. While the Kenyan constitution prohibits dual citizenship for those 21 years old or older, it does not do so for minors. But without taking steps to renounce his U.S. citizenship in a formal manner before Kenyan authorities, his Kenyan citizenship expired two years after he turned 21. He therefore was no more a Kenyan citizen via birth to a Kenyan father overseas, nor through his Kenyan expired citizenship was he any longer connected to the British Commonwealth and therefore was solely an Indonesian citizen by adoption.
When the Constitution was written, it was universally understood that a child born to a living foreign father was not a natural born American. But the Supreme Court of today might choose to impose its view of how “natural born citizen” should be understood and might expand its parameters to include not just birth-right citizenship being passed from the father, but also from the mother, meaning from the mother in the absence of a father. If they so chose, then they would also have to present some guidelines for finding a father to be absent and irrelevant.
If the parents of a Presidential candidate weren’t married, nor living together when he was born, then the American mother and her child were not under the jurisdiction of a foreign father, nor that of a foreign power. In that case, even though the child was not born to an American father, does the MIA foreign father’s nationality have any impact on whether or not his off-spring is a natural born citizen? No one can say for certain. The question has never been considered nor adjudicated, -nor even arisen.
The Constitution gives Congress no power to legislate regarding natural citizens, only immigrants and foreigners.
If he were born to married parents, -with an American mother, and the foreign father was a naturalized citizen, the son would be deemed a natural born citizen via birth to citizen parents.
The nature of his citizenship is not determined solely by his place of birth but by his parentage and the jurisdiction his parents were, or were not, under. But being deemed to be a U.S. citizen is quite different from being born a natural citizen.
If a child was under British jurisdiction through the connection with the father, that would deny him birth as a natural American citizen, even though he would be entitled to US citizenship due to his blood connection to his American mother -if he were not born in the US.
Foreign citizens are under the protection of their own nation’s sovereignty over its own so not being citizens of the U.S., they are not subject to its political jurisdiction. Thus, if one is born on US soil to foreign tourists, he/she is not a US citizen by native-birth. But if foreign parents are no longer fully under foreign jurisdiction due to legal residence here, then their off-spring would rightly be considered US citizens at birth, but not natural born citizens because they lacked American parents.
The First U.S. Congress included in the 1790 Immigration & Naturalization Act language to alert the State Department to the fact that Americans born abroad are (“natural born” citizens” and are not to be viewed as foreigners due to foreign birth. They were not “granted” citizenship via that US statute, -rather their automatic citizenship was stated as a fact that must be recognized by possibly ignorant immigration authorities, and the nature of their citizenship had to be recognized by voting officials who might ignorantly deem them unqualified to be President. They were not citizens by any other means than Natural Law, and statutory law was written solely to insure that their natural citizenship was recognized and protected from disenfranchisement if they choose to run for the presidency one day.
If it were certain that everyone in the State Department would always get it right, then the statute would not need to have been written nor included in an immigration statute. But confusion and ignorance are unavoidable in the people who administer the regulatory power of the nation.
Therefore for unusual circumstances (birth abroad), codifying natural law eliminated confusion and misunderstanding. Consequently, they could be described as both natural citizens and statutory citizens since the statue did not explain the principle by which they were recognized as citizens. It’s left as an unanswered question, a question answerable only by the principle of natural law.
The next Congress repealed that Act and re-wrote it, dropping the reference to natural born citizen because the Act was unrelated to the issue of Presidential eligibility. The phrase “nature born citizens” has never since been included in any United States statute. It remains as it was in the beginning, -a term defined by its common language meaning and has never yet been defined by the Supreme Court. If they can avoid it, it never will be. And it doesn’t need to be if one realizes that neither “citizen” “born” nor “natural” need to be defined by anyone because they are plainly defined by the English language. Stringing them together does not change their meaning in any way, but it eliminates two ambiguities.
FACTORS INVOLVED IN THE ISSUE OF CITIZENSHIP
The conduct of a foreign person and his compliance with U.S. policy, tradition, and law.
The circumstances of one’s birth, i.e. its location and the nationality of the parents.
The actions and guidelines of the INS officers who administer immigration policy.
The directives of their superiors who head the CIS.
The opinions, written and spoken, of the Attorney General -the head of the Justice Dept.
The policy stance of the White House.
The force of Congressional legislation.
The force of constitutional law, in particular the 1st section of the 14th Amendment.
The Constitution is not underlying the above factors because it doesn’t deal with citizenship issues.
Underlying all of the above is unwritten fundamental natural law and the principle of natural membership.
While it can’t be proven that Obama is not a U.S. citizen, it can’t be proven that he was one at birth since it can’t be proven that he was even born within the United States. The digital images that his office has posted online are rife with signs of manipulation that can’t be explained as legitimate and are not backed-up by any hard-copy that has ever been shown to the public or to experts.
If he was born in Vancouver…

-or Kenya, then he definitely was not an American citizen at birth because his mother was too young to convey American citizenship to him under U.S. law in effect at that time. So he’s not natural born via natural law, nor “native-born” via the 14th Amendment since his father was not a legal registered immigrant and therefore was not “subject to (U.S.) jurisdiction” a la the 14th Amendment.
But the ignoramuses who administer immigration law view him, and every Tom-Dick-&-Harry illegal immigrant born here, as being a citizen, leading his bamboozled supporters to make the gigantic leap of proclaiming all domestically born citizens to be natural born citizens. To them the word “natural” has no meaning whatsoever because if it does, then it means he is illegitimately serving as President.
Sheriff Arpaio’s Cold Case Posse found that records of INS cards filled out by passengers arriving on international flights originating outside the United States in the month of August 1961, examined at the National Archives in Washington, D.C., are missing records for the week of President Obama’s birth.
The Meaning of Natural Born
The legitimacy of the presidency of Barack Obama rests on the meaning of the words “natural born citizen”. Those words were not invented by a King, a Pope, a Lord, a Judge, a Parliamentarian, a Governor, or a legal scholar. It is not an invented phrase with a meaning assigned by its inventor. It is nothing more than simple English words used in conjunction for emphasis of what they were intended to describe. They were intended to describe Americans who are the off-spring of American parents and no others.
The words “natural” and “born” are closely connected and related in a semi-redundant way that reinforces the purpose and meaning of both of them.
Natural relates to natural law, and how in nature things are what they are due to natural processes, such as pro-creation, as opposed to unnatural or artificial processes that do not follow a natural pattern.
Born refers to the natural pattern of conception, gestation, and birth. That process produces a natural entity, -such as a cub, a kitten, a puppy, a pony, or a child. Born does not have any connection to geography, nor man-made boundaries, nor made-made rules. It has no connection to location. In the natural realm, the location where a birth takes place has no connection to the origin of that which is born.
Born only refers to the conclusion of the organic process of the reproduction & transmission of life and nature from parents to child. It is not dependent on boundaries, soil, gravity, or even the earth itself. It can occur in outer-space. The product of birth is a replication of the nature of the parents, whether it be their species, breed, race, or group affiliation.
By the process leading to birth, the one born is endowed with the same nature as the parents. And group membership, along with that nature, is also transmitted to them. That membership can be in a clan, a tribe, a colony/state, or a nation. They are born into it, -not adopted nor granted membership as is required for outsiders . Membership is theirs by birth. Their membership is natural membership because it is by natural reproduction.
Natural reproduction does not include reproduction via a union with one who is not a member. Such a union only produces a hybrid, -half member, half outsider. That membership is not describable as natural because its origin is not via the pattern of natural-birth membership because hybrids of all kinds are unnatural, whether they be in botany, animal husbandry, wild nature, human society, or politics.
Any type or source of membership that is other than that produced by the natural pattern fails the test of being natural. The source of its legitimacy is not natural inheritance but human choice, human permission, human law.
No one whose membership is via human permission is a natural member of any group. No one whose citizenship is via human law is a natural member of any nation.
In America, there is no law by which natural citizens possess citizenship. It is an unwritten law. It never needed to be written because it was an unalienable right and an element of Natural Rights that humans are endowed with by their Creator.
With a visiting student foreigner (non-immigrant, non-permanent resident), as a father whose membership in the British Empire was the natural inheritance transmitted to his child, Barack Obama possessed no unalienable right to American citizenship because he was not a natural born citizen, but was instead a hybrid with no natural citizenship in any nation.
I ask; “What is the nature of Panamanian-born John McCain’s citizenship? Is it natural citizenship or statutory citizenship?” Congress has proclaimed him to be a natural born citizen by a vote of 99-0. Those who claim that native-birth creates natural citizens will avoid attempting to answer it because they know that the answer undermines the entire basis of their fallacious notion about why Obama should be accepted as legitimate. McCain’s natural citizenship came from his American parents, not where he was born.
Failure to answer my question shows that all of the Titanic captains (which they worship as infallible experts) have made the same grave error by doing what they’ve been doing, namely, relying on opinions of previous “experts” who relied on earlier “experts” who made erroneous assumptions based on the unnatural institution of monarchical rule legitimized by “the Divine Right of Kings” during the one & a half centuries of colonial rule, and not on the natural law of Natural Rights endowed to man by the Nature’s God.
An inescapable fact is that even Republicans are mentally bound by group-think, and thinking that the President of the United States is illegitimate is beyond where their minds are capable of going. They are a part of the process and power structure and thus were complicit in allowing his election.
That guaranteed them that no objection would be raised to John McCain’s eligibility. They thought he might win so they were silent and unthinking. Now they are painted into a corner in which it is unacceptable to question the legitimacy of the President of the United States, -as if that would be an affront to the Office of the President and the dignity of the first mixed-race victor in the battle for the White House, when in fact, not doing so is an affront to the Constitution.
Even so, speaking the truth may be calling for the dispensing of medicine that is worse than the disease, -the disease that’s part of the gangrene of the body politic which is rotting from within with each new unconstitutional mandate passed by Congress or the Supreme Court or Executive Order.
The loyalty of only the President is an issue addressed in the Constitution because of the power he wields. The holders of no other federal offices are required to be natural born citizens, only the President.
Here’s the United States Oath of Allegiance for Naturalization (it shows the length to which foreigners with dual allegiance must go to strip themselves of it and the doubt as to their loyalty to America and the Constitution that a second allegiance raises:
( The first officially recorded Oaths of Allegiance were made on May 30th, 1778 at Valley Forge)
“I hereby declare, on oath, that I absolutely and entirely renounce and abjure all allegiance and fidelity to any foreign prince, potentate, state, or sovereignty of whom or which I have heretofore been a subject or citizen; that I will support and defend the Constitution and laws of the United States of America against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same;… so help me God.”

This is not just about “BO”, it’s about the entire White House and the pigs now feeding from the public trough. They’ve trashed our Constitution, opened our borders, stole our social security, and all tax dollars the American Public have paid, borrowed more money than god could have ever imagined and continue their smoke screen while making this country a third world nation. Our war should not be with third world nations but with Washington, [Republicrats included] these pigs need to be removed physically before this nation is gone. DO NOT SIT FAT, DUMB, AND HAPPY, GET UP AND DO SOMETHING BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE!
The man who calls himself the President of the United States should not only be removed from that position but tried for his crimes against the United States. His co-conspirator, Nancy Pelosi should also share his demise. She knew when she sent his nomination papers to the Democrat National Committee that he was not eligible to be President. She removed from that document the words :”natural born citizen” before submitting it. However, the Democrat Committee in charge of the nomination did not challenge the removal of that passage, therefore, they, as well as she, have committed Treason long before the imposter did and should suffer the same consequences, whether they are re-elected or not. The sooner we rid our nation of these traitors, the sooner we can bring this nation back to what is was meant to be.
