Obama CANNOT be a Natural-born Citizen


Natural-born Citizen

The scion of distinguished U.S. naval officers, McCain was born to two American
parents in the Panama Canal Zone. On April 30, 2008, the U.S. Senate sought to
answer the question by passing a nonbinding resolution, which states, “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.”

PLUS a FORGED Long Form Certification of Live Birth

“4. 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.”

“Society not being able to subsist and perpetuate itself, but by the children of its citizens, those children naturally follow the condition of their fathers, and succeed to all their rights. The country of the fathers is therefore that of the children, and these become true citizens merely by their tacit consent.

“A Natural Born Citizen is one who is born of citizen parents. A child born abroad to two US citizen parents is a natural-born citizen: Provided, That at least one citizen parent had a prior residence in the United States or one of its outlying possessions.”  U.S. Code: Title 8, 1401.

American Citizen, Native Born Citizen, Natural Born Citizen, Why these Terms are Important?
His Master’s Voice | 8/4/09 | HMV

Posted on Tuesday, August 04, 2009 12:25:56 PM by Hillary’sMoralVoid

What I find so amazing about the “birther bashers” (or “afterbirthers” as I call them) is that they have so little appreciation for the complexity of Obama’s citizenship dilemma. They also do not appreciate the trap doors that exist at various points in his life regarding adoption and immigration between countries where he resided. Most of all, though, they don’t understand the basic terms that they banter about.

In short, Obama’s life path is fraught with potentially disqualifying conditions for the office he holds. As a constitutional law instructor, perhaps no one understands these conditions like he does, and that explains his intransigence in releasing anything that might expose him to constitutional challenge.

Let me just take a stab at a few terms that the ‘afterbirthers” throw around like they are interchangeable.

American citizen – this only means that at least one of the birth parents was an American and that the indivicual was naturalized, if not born in the US. These alo include immigrants who have been naturalized citizens. You can be considered an American citizen if you have dual citizenship with another country. To scream that Obama is an American citizen, as many afterbirthers do, proves NOTHING avout his right to be president. Even Syrian-born Tony Rezko is an American citizen.

Native Born Citizen – this means that an individual, in addition to having at least one parent who is an American citizen and you were born on US soil (including territories and American bases). Although this term is thrown around by afterbirthers, this still does not meet the definition of a Natural Born Citizen.

Natural Born Citizen – this is an individual born of two American parents, whether the parents were native born or were foreign born and then naturalized. I believe that Bobby Jindal’s parents were not native born, but he would be qualified for president because both parents were American citizens through the naturalization process.

The afterbirthers scream that there were seven presidents born that had at least one foreign parent like Obama. That is true, but in every case, the foreign parent was naturalized, with the exception of Chester Arthur. His father was Irish and became a Canadian citizen, never a naturalized US citizen. He obviously realized he was not qualified for office because he actually burned some of his personal records to keep anyone from finding out. A familiar pattern of behavior?

The fact is, we don’t need to go to Kenya to disprove Obama’s eligibility. It is hidden in plain sight. He is not a Natural Born Citizen due to to his Kenyan father. The Supreme Court simply has to take on this issue to declare that the meaning of the term has never changed. Constitutional scholars have been eerily silent on this issue, but in the research I’ve done, I can find no other interpretation.

As mentioned earlier, there is a plethora of reasons why Obama might otherwise be unqualified should the Supreme Court not decide against his natural born status, but that is the most logical starting point.

Natural-born Citizen

The Conclusive Definition Of “Natural-Born  Citizen

Natural-born citizens of the United States are those who are citizens of the  United States from birth without having to perform any act to acquire or perfect  their American citizenship. These are those whose parents are citizens of the  United States at the time of their birth.

Natural-born American citizens are those born of American citizen parents,  within or without the American Republic, provided in the latter case that one of  the parents had resided in the United States prior to the birth of the child.

Their American citizenship is natural, the result of parentage, and not  artificial

or acquired by compliance with legislative provisions.

A natural-born citizen is one not made by law or otherwise, but born. And this  class is the large majority, in fact, the mass of our citizens; all others are  exceptions specially provided for by law.

A natural-born citizen is defined as one whose citizenship is established by the  jurisdiction which the United States already has over the parents of the child,  not what is thereafter acquired by choice of residence in this country.

It is not necessary that a man should be born in this country, to be “a natural  born citizen.” It is only requisite he should be a citizen by birth, and that is  the case with all the children of citizens who have ever resided in this  country, though born in a foreign country.

Natural-born citizens, as distinguished from aliens and naturalized citizens,  are

those born in the United States of parents who are citizens.

Natural-born citizens are also those born outside 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 the child.

Hence, a child born abroad to two US citizen parents is a natural-born citizen:  Provided, That at least one citizen parent had previously resided in the United  States or one of its outlying possessions. U.S. Code: Title 8, 1401.

John Bingham, architect of  the 14th amendment, defined a natural born citizen, at the same time?

he made clear that former slaves deserved to be citizens so that their descendants like any other citizens’ descendants could also be natural born citizens. Bingham added the 14th amendment to bring former slaves into the fold of America, but he emphasized that the 14th did not change the definition of the natural born citizen.In 1866 the Civil Rights Act reemphasized this, and it was reenacted verbatim in 1872, it is still on the books. It says if a child is born with any other allegiance or citizenship it is not a US citizen.In 1874, Minor v. Happersett held that no 14th amendment citizen is ever a natural born citizen (because the 14th was added 6 years prior).”All from other lands, who by the terms of [congressional] laws and a compliance with their provisions become naturalized, are adopted citizens of the United States; all other persons born within the Republic, of parents owing allegiance to no other sovereignty, are natural born citizens. Gentleman can find no exception to this statement touching natural-born citizens except what is said in the Constitution relating to Indians.” (Cong. Globe, 37th, 2nd Sess., 1639 (1862))

OED

Oxford  English Dictionary – “One who is a subject of another country than that in which  he resides. A resident foreign in origin and not naturalized, whose allegiance is thus due to a foreign state.”

English Common Law

The Oxford English Dictionary defines “natural born” as “[h]aving a  specified position or character by birth”. They list this definition as going  back to the 16th century.[2]

http://www.espuelas.com/_OBAMA-REWRITE-THE-DEFINITION-OF-NATURAL-BORN-CITIZEN/blog/3304519/163191.html

According to dictionaries dating as far back as Webster’s 1828  Edition, the term natural born citizen has a very simple and specific  common meaning, and according to the framers of the US Constitution, a very  important distinction.

Natural – Pertaining to nature; produced or effected by nature, or by the laws of growth, formation or motion impressed on bodies or beings by divine power.
Born – To be born, is to be produced or brought into life.
Citizen – In the United States, a person, native or naturalized, who has the privilege of exercising the elective franchise, or the qualifications which enable him to vote for rulers, and to purchase and hold real estate.

Based upon the official definition of these words, we know  immediately that the term natural born citizen is not based upon  statute or any form of man-made law. It exists in nature, the result of natural  law, by divine power, only able to be recognized or ignored by legislative  process, but still inalienable via legal processes.

Many self-proclaimed experts insist that the US Constitution  was written in some secret code, which can only be deciphered for the common  folk, by legal scholars of the highest order. Yet on the basis of simple  definitions, we know that if we are discussing any form of man-made law  requiring the analysis of legal scholars, we are NOT discussing natural-born.

The term natural born citizen is of nature, not  man-made law. The Constitution is written in plain and simple English, each word  with a specific definition and meaning easily found in any English dictionary.  Fortunately, not only legal scholars have access to dictionaries, making it  possible for anyone who can read, to understand the Constitution, so long as  they have a dictionary in hand.

http://naturalborncitizen.wordpress.com/2011/03/09/the-house-of-representatives-definition-of-natural-born-citizen-born-of-citizen-parents-in-the-us/

During adebate (see pg. 2791) regarding a certain Dr. Houard, who had been  incarcerated in Spain, the issue was raised on the floor of the House of  Representatives as to whether the man was a US citizen. Representative Bingham  (of Ohio), stated on the floor:

“As to the question of citizenship I am willing to resolve all doubts in favor of a citizen of the United States. That Dr. Houard is a natural-born citizen of the United States there is not room for the shadow of a doubt. He was born of naturalized parents within the jurisdiction of the United States, and by the express words of the Constitution, as amended to-day, he is declared to all the world to be a citizen of the United States by birth.” (The term “to-day”, as used by Bingham, means “to date”. Obviously, the Constitution had not been amended on April 25, 1872.)

Notice that Bingham declares Houard to be a “natural-born citizen” by citingtwo factors – born of citizen parents in the US.

John Bingham, aka “father of the 14th Amendment”, was an abolitionist congressman from Ohio who  prosecuted Lincoln’s assassins. Ten years earlier, he stated on the House floor:

“All from other lands, who by the terms of [congressional] laws and a compliance with their provisions become naturalized, are adopted citizens of the United States; all other persons born within the Republic, of parents owing allegiance to no other sovereignty, are natural born citizens. Gentleman can find no exception to this statement touching natural-born citizens except what is said in the Constitution relating to Indians.(Cong. Globe, 37th, 2nd Sess., 1639 (1862))

Then in 1866, Bingham also stated on the House floor:

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.(Cong. Globe, 39th, 1st Sess., 1291 (1866))

No other Representative ever took issue with these words on the floor of the  House. If you read the Congressional Globe to study these debates, you will see  that many of the underlying issues were hotly contested. However, Bingham’s  definition of “natural born citizen” (born of citizen parents in the US) wasnever challenged on the floor of the House.

Furthermore, the Supreme Court’s holding in Wong Kim Ark did not address  Presidential eligibility, nor did it define “natural born citizen”. It simply  clarified who was a “citizen”. Had the framers of the 14th Amendment sought to  define nbc, they would have used the words “natural born” in the Amendment. But  they didn’t.

How many proofs do you need that the putative obama birth certificate is a FORGERY?!:

I’m not a “birther”, since there was never any evidence that Barak Obama wasn’t born in Hawaii. That said, I can’t get over the fact that the pdf of the birth certificat­e posted on whitehouse­.gov has been manipulate­d in Adobe Illustrato­r.

Why?

The “proof” is making me doubt. I’m a graphic artist. I know how to manipulate­, and I know how to disguise the manipulati­on, but this manipulati­on hasn’t been disguised. The pdf doesn’t contain a bitmap of a photograph­ically copied birth certificat­e. It contains layers of manipulati­on. This disturbs me no end.

3 thoughts on “Obama CANNOT be a Natural-born Citizen

    1. No, Snopes had it completely right. All these claims of citizen parents rely on the assumption that Obama was born outside of the US. Title 8, does not require that for any child born in the US (subsection a is all that counts).

      Since you are misquoting an unreliable source that incorrectly paraphrases Title 8, here is the full text of Sec. 1401:

      § 1401. Nationals and citizens of 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.

    Even before the dust could settle on the controversy over US President Barack Obama’s birth certificate, new documents about his father have emerged claiming that Obama senior was forced to leave Harvard university amid concerns about his playboy ways.

    Obama senior, a PhD candidate at Harvard, was forced to since the administrators were alarmed at the number of women in his life and his financial difficulties.

    Documents obtained by weekly newspaper The Arizona Independent from the United States Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) through a Freedom of Information Act show that Harvard wanted “to try and cook something up to ease him (Barack Obama senior) out” since school administrators “were having difficulty with his financial arrangements and couldn’t seem to figure out how many wives he had.”

    The documents also show that Harvard officials considered Obama senior to be a “slippery character.”

    According to federal immigration records, the senior Obama was forced to leave the university in 1964 before he could complete his doctorate in economics.

    He was denied an extension on his student visa in July 1964 partly because Harvard University sought his removal.

    Obama senior had to leave the US since he became an illegal alien after his visa expired.

    The report comes a day after President Obama, himself a Harvard Law School graduate, released his long-form birth certificate as a proof that he was born in the US.

    According to a May 1964 memo in Obama senior’s Immigration and Naturalisation Service (INS) file, an immigration official noted that Obama had passed his exams and was entitled to stay and complete the requirements for a PhD in economics.

    However Harvard administrators, including the chairman of the economics department, tried to “ease him out….They are planning on telling him that they will not give him any money and that he had better return to Kenya and prepare his thesis at home,” a Boston Globe report, quoting the immigration documents, said.

    Later, an immigration inspector recorded in a memo that Harvard had asked the INS to hold up on Obama’s request for an extension of his stay.

    An investigator, M F McKeon, wrote “They (Harvard officials) weren’t very impressed with him and asked us to hold up action on his application until they decided what action they could take in order to get rid of him.”

    The then director of Harvard’s International Office David Henry advised Obama in a May letter that he had three weeks to make the necessary preparations to return to Nairobi.

    Obama was compelled to leave the country in July 1964.

    The CIS investigated the elder Obama as a polygamist, having a wife in Kenya and a “wife and child in Honolulu.”

    A memo added that “Polygamy is not a deportation charge as Subject (Obama senior) is a

    non-immigrant.”

    “For Obama, then 30 and widely expected to be a key player back home in newly independent Kenya, Harvard’s decision was disastrous. Lacking the degree for which he so yearned, Obama embarked on an erratic career path that never lived up to his early promise,” the Globe said.

    A 1961 memo had also noted a statement from a foreign student adviser at the University of Hawaii, where Obama was a student in the 1960s.

    In the note, the adviser states that “Subject (Obama senior) has been running around with several girls since he first arrived here and last summer she cautioned him about his playboy ways. Subject replied that he would ‘try’ to stay away from the girls.”
