Who Is A Natural American And Who Is Not?
Who Is A Natural American And Who Is Not?
( Who can be President and who can not?)
The children of every tribe and nation come into this world as new members of their parent’s group. They are born into it. They are natural members who will one day marry and have children who also will be new members of the group. And so it goes generation after generation. That’s how groups are populated and achieve self-perpetuation.
The children of members of a nation are its natural members. They are born as members. As a rule, essentially all who are born members are also natural members, but in out-of-the-ordinary circumstances, a child could be a born member but not a natural member.
If the daughter of the Chief became pregnant by a warrior of her tribe, their child would be born as a natural member, -or a natural born member. But if a warrior from another unrelated tribe were to be the father of a child born to the chief’s daughter, that child would not be a natural member because it was not fathered by a member but by an outsider. Yet it would be a born member because it carried the chief’s blood and therefore would not be rejected as an outsider or alien. A born member was a member from birth, -in contrast to an adult becoming a new member by sacred rites, rituals, and initiation processes required for outsides who wished to join the tribe.
All of the children of the tribe, except that one, would be natural, tribe-born members. But the child of the outsider would only be a born member, -not a natural born member.
The same rule applies to a larger tribe known as a nation, and to a larger membership known as citizenship. In a nation, those born to its citizens are citizens also, and naturally so because citizens naturally reproduce citizens. They were born into the nation as its new natural members. From birth, and by birth, they are born natural citizens, -or natural born citizens. The order of the words is unimportant. Both have the same meaning.
All natural citizens are citizens automatically and are not required to undergo processing by inspection, licensing, testing, genealogical review, genetic history review nor any review & permission process of any kind. Their national membership is natural membership and is theirs by birth.
In America there is no law that grants citizenship to natural Americans. There never will be such a law because it would be outside of the authority of Congress to make such a law. The only authority that Congress was given in regard to citizenship was that of passing laws governing the making of citizens out of foreigners, -naturalization laws.
Those laws cover any child who had a foreigner for a father. A foreigner cannot father a natural American, but for a long time, a foreign woman, married to an American man, could give birth to a natural American because she would no longer be a foreigner due to “naturalization by marriage”.
By marrying an American man, a foreign woman historically would have become an American automatically. All she would need to prove her citizenship was her husband’s birth certificate and her marriage license. And that is how they did it and that was the practice for a very long time.
The founders of our nation put a restriction into the Constitution that forbids anyone from serving as President if they are not a natural American. They can serve in any other high office in the land, except for the one that puts into one’s hands all the power of the combined command of all United States military forces. They realized the danger of the power of the presidency being in the hands of a man who was born to and raised by a foreigner who retained allegiance and devotion to a foreign King. Therefore only one born to an American father was eligible to be the President. He would come into this world owing allegiance to no one and therefore his only allegiance would be to his country and its Constitution.
This is all common sense, and it was common knowledge in the era of the revolutionary war, which saw the treachery of General Benedict Arnold, -the first and worst traitor in American history. Our founders did not want any chance of such treachery ever being committed by the Commander-in-Chief of the United States Army and Navy. So they required that he be a natural born citizen (making him 100% American from birth). Anyone who was not 100% American at birth and by birth is not constitutionally qualified to serve as the President. That is the clear command of the Constitution. Only a constitutional amendment can lawfully alter it. But the lazy, cowardly, apathetic and corrupt excuses for protectors of our republic have instead chosen to simply ignored it.
Their covers for doing so are the wide-spread misconceptions that simply being born on U.S. soil magically makes one an American citizen, and also that any and every citizen, aside from those not born on U.S. soil, is allowed to be President. Both are provably wrong and it does not take a genius to comprehend the facts, nor does it take a legal scholar, lawyer, or judge to explain what the meaning of “natural” is. John McCain was born being a natural American even though he came into this world outside of the United States. It was his birth to an American couple that resulted in him being a natural citizen of the United States, and not an immigrant or foreigner, or citizen by statute.
Comprehending the idea of being born as a natural citizen comes naturally to everyone. It is as common-sensical as knowing that the sun will rise in the East tomorrow morning. It is not a legal concept because it doesn’t come from human law, it comes from Natural Law, -the natural law and natural right of membership by birth, -not membership by the laws of men.
The clear simple truth of who is a natural American, -or “natural born Citizen”, is not something that requires a law degree to understand, nor does it require reference to comments, opinions, rulings, quotes, or quotes of quotes by past legislators or judges or Justices of the Supreme Court. Any child can grasp it. It’s meaning has not changed since it was written. All that is gained by thinking that it is a matter of law, or common law, or monarchical philosophy is to confuse that which is not confusing.
It was not written to be read by legal scholars but by the common men who would be charged with deciding whether or not to ratify the Constitution which contained it and all the other elements of a totally new form of government.
So who is a natural American? Essentially everyone I know and probably everyone you know because we are all natives of America, -born to native parents. But being the melting pot that America is, many here are not natural Americans. After the fall of South Vietnam, there was a massive influx of new foreigners into America. None of them were natural Americans, nor even Americans of any type. But they became Americans via a mass naturalization by law.
Their children thus were born to new American citizens and therefore were new natural Americans, but that wasn’t what happened to the massive influx of Cubans resulting from the Muriel Boat Life. Their land was just off-shore a ways. They were still Cubans, -citizens of and devoted to their homeland, unlike the Vietnamese immigrants who were homeless, nationless refugees. They were allowed in because of their proven loyalty and connection to America during the long war.
So the Cuban immigrants were not granted American citizenship. They had to procure it the normal way, via the naturalization process. Any child born to them before they became naturalized Americans would not be born as a natural American but as a natural Cuban because they were still Cubans, -or were ex-Cubans in a nationality Limbo.
Only children born to Americans are natural Americans, all others who are citizens are so only by the consent and mandate of the people of American via law, policy, and procedure. That can and does include permission granted from birth (automatic naturalization) when a child is born to lawfully allowed permanent residents of the United States. Just like natural citizens, they are subject to the jurisdiction of the national government. Therefore the assumption is that their children will grow up in America as Americans and will be integrated into the nation as citizens just like the millions of children of immigrants that came before them.
But children born to non-immigrant foreigners who are not subject to the limitations and requirements placed on citizens and immigrants, nor to the political jurisdiction of our government, are not natural Americans and therefore cannot be President of the United States.
Barack Obama was just such a child because his father was in America solely as a Visa card foreign student and therefore remained subject to his own government, Great Britain. Therefore the location of his son’s birth is irrelevant to the issue of his eligibility to be the President because one’s place of birth is not at all connected to natural citizenship nor to who one’s father was.
Then how could he have been elected President? Because there is no neutral entity that has the responsibility of insuring that the candidates for President are actually qualified. The Senate has responsibility but that is only after the election. The Constitution stipulates that if the President-elect is found to not be qualified, then the Vice-President shall be President until a new election shall elect a qualified President.
But Senator Obama’s fellow Senators were not about to require that he be constitutionally qualified because they would have been called racists, and that would be like the Scarlet Letter painted across the chest of their public image.
So they allowed him to be unconstitutionally swore into office and they will allow it again if the States of the nation allow him on their ballots and he wins the election for a second time. To make a gigantic mistake in judgement or a sin of omission one time can just barely be tolerated. But how does anyone tolerate it twice? Hopefully, the guardians of the state’s ballot will be awake this time and will be unafraid, like Gandolf, to command the unqualified candidate, “You shall not pass!” Will they find the courage? We’ll have 50 chances to find out.
