If the father of a child is the citizen of another country, the child’s citizenship is is not exclusively American at birth, he has dual citizenship and can elect to become the citizen of either of his parents countries when he comes of age. This does not fit the definition of “natural born citizen” as intended by the Framers of the Constitution.
The Founders feared divided loyalty and foreign influence over the president and especially that the child of foreign royalty could become president and claim the right to subjugate and rule America as a king. The intent of the Framers was to require that the president and commander-in-chief be solely American at birth and not have citizenship by birthright of any other country.
This fear of divided loyalty is a valid now as it was then, maybe more so, because today it is so much easier to maintain an emotional connection to a foreign nation. Obama declared in a speech in Berlin in July of 2008 that he is a “citizen of the world.” Michelle Obama has publicly called Kenya his “homeland.” Obama’s official biography circulated by his publisher for years stated that he was born in Kenya!
The politically incorrect truth is that the Founders meant for the president to come from an American family and only from an American family, not from a foreign family or a divided family that is half American and half another nationality. They intentionally wrote that requirement into the Constitution.
The first Congress, which included many of the Farmers, wrote this definition into the first Naturalization Act of 1790. This act has been replaced by newer naturalization laws, but it still shows the original intent of the Framers.
Today’s public is not much aware of the original meaning of “natural born citizen,” because the term is not in common use and such issues do not come up very often.
The politicians of both parties are ignoring the original intent of the Framers, because they both have favorite sons, whom they want to nominate that are not constitutionally eligible.
The courts are too intimidated by the politicians and fear of an adverse public reaction to even allow the issue to be properly argued in court.
None of the media, including the so-called conservative media are properly informing the public about this fraud. They are influenced by the same large corporations and wealthy elite that control the political parties.
BACKGROUND & DEFINITION OF NATURAL BORN CITIZEN
Taken from Article 2, Section 1 of the U.S. 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.
Surprisingly (or maybe not), no government officials are legally responsible for vetting the eligibility of Obama. The word of the Party is accepted under the “honor system.” Unfortunately, the political parties have no honor. See this link.
If Obama were eligible, the courts could easily rule on this or Congress could pass a resolution declaring that Obama is “natural born,” as they did for Senator John McCain. That they do not do it for Obama, just demonstrates that they themselves know full well that he is not eligible. Otherwise, they would resolve this controversy that has gone on for 3-4 years.
A special exception to the eligibility requirements has been made especially for Obama and there is a huge coverup by our corrupt Congress and the corporation-run media, both conservative and liberal. You can read the resolution on McCain’s eligibility here:
Senate Resolution 511 – A resolution recognizing that John Sidney McCain, III, is a natural born citizen.
In the Resolution declaring McCain’s eligibility hearing, the Senate cited this statute below of the First Congress that defines the term “natural born citizen.” It is clear from the text of the Senate’s own reference that the term requires the parents to be citizens of the United States. If the children of an American citizen married to a foreign citizen were intended to be natural born citizens, they could have explicitly stated that.

That the Senate cited this law as proof of McCain’s eligibility just shows that Congress knew very well that Obama is not eligible, because the law eliminates Obama, declaring that the children of American citizens (plural) are natural born citizens.
If Congress wants to give away our birthright and make the children of foreigners on temporary student visas Natural Born Citizens and thus eligible to become president, a constitutional amendment is necessary.
FIRST CONGRESS Session II, Chapter 3 (1790)
Chap. III. — An act to establish an uniform Rule Of Naturalization.(a)
Section I. Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That any alien, being a free white person, who shall have resided within the limits and under the jurisdiction of the United States for the term of two years, may be admitted to become a citizen thereof, on application to any common law court of record, in any one of the states wherein he shall have resided for the term of one year at least, and making proof to the satisfaction of such court, that he is a person of good character, and taking the oath or affirmation prescribed by law, to support the constitution of the United States, which oath or affirmation such court shall administer; and the clerk of such court shall record such application, and the proceedings thereon; and thereupon such person shall be considered as a citizen of the United States. And the children of such persons so
naturalized, dwelling within the United States, being under the age of twenty-one years at the time of such naturalization, shall also be considered as citizens of the United States. And 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: Provided, That the right of citizenship shall not descend to persons whose fathers have never been resident in the United States: Provided Also, That no person heretofore proscribed by any state, shall be admitted a citizen as aforesaid, except by an act of the legislature of the state in which such person was proscribed.(a)
Approved, March 26, 1790.
This statute was replaced by later legislation, but it was enacted by many who were Founders and shows the intent of the Founders by use of the term “natural born citizen.”
The same definition is repeated in the following Supreme Court ruling, which still has the force of law:
Excerpted from Minor v. Happersett – 88 U.S. 162 (1874)
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. For the purposes of this case, it is not necessary to solve these doubts. It is sufficient for everything we have now to consider that all children born of citizen parents within the jurisdiction are themselves citizens. The words “all children” are certainly as comprehensive, when used in this connection, as “all persons,” and if females are included in the last, they must be in the first. That they are included in the last is not denied. In fact, the whole argument of the plaintiffs proceeds upon that idea.
Under the power to adopt a uniform system of naturalization, Congress, as early as 1790, provided “that any alien, being a free white person,” might be admitted as a citizen of the United States, and that the children of such persons so naturalized, dwelling within the United States, being under twenty-one years of age at the time of such naturalization, should also be considered citizens of the United States, and that the children of citizens of the United States that might be born beyond the sea, or out of the limits of the United States, should be considered as natural-born citizens. These provisions thus enacted have in substance been retained in all the naturalization laws adopted since. In 1855, however, the last provision was somewhat extended, and all persons theretofore born or thereafter to be born out of the limits of the jurisdiction of the United States, whose fathers were or should be at the time of their birth citizens of the United States were declared to be citizens also.
This is a quote from 1866 by John Bingham, known as the father of the 14th Amendment. It shows that the 14th Amendment does not change the meaning of the term “natural born citizen,” as some claim, and does not change the eligibility requirement for the presidency that he be natural born, the offspring of (two) American parents.
Congressional Globe, House of Representatives – 39th Congress – 1st Session
Page 1291 of 1920
Has the Congress of the United States the power to pass and enforce the bill as it comes to us from the committee? Has the Congress of the United States the power to declare, as this bill does declare, in the words which I propose to strike out, that there shall be no discrimination of civil rights among citizens of the United States in any State of the United States, on account of race, color, or previous condition of slavery.
I find no fault with the introductory clause, which is simply declaratory of what is written in the Constitution, that 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; but, sir, I may be allowed to say further, that I deny that the Congress of the United States ever had the power or color of power to say that any man born within the jurisdiction of the United States, not owing a foreign allegiance, is not and shall not be a citizen of the United States. Citizenship is his birthright, and neither the Congress nor the States can justly or lawfully take it from him. But while this is admitted, can you declare by congressional enactment as to citizens of the United States within the States that there shall be no discrimination among them of civil rights?
This quote is from “The Law of Nations,” written by Emerich de Vattel in 1758. In book one chapter 19,
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.
It is clear that “natural born citizen” means the children of citizens (plural) of the United States. Obama is, therefore, not constitutionally eligible for the Presidency.
The meaning of the Constitution cannot be changed without an amendment. The leadership of Congress knows very well what the real requirement for the presidency is and they have just chosen to ignore it, in order to advance the corrupt political agendas of both parties. They are convinced that they can ignore the constitutional requirement as they please and no one will be able to do anything about it.
A great criminal fraud has been perpetrated on the American public by both of the political parties when Obama was elected and sworn in as president.
If justice be served, the members of the Democratic National Committee, who certified Obama’s eligibility should literally be charged with fraud and sent to prison. The Congressional leadership of both parties is complicit in this.

I just don’t understand how Americans can allow this to happen. It confuses me that he is still in office. Guess we aren’t as smart as we think we are.
I don’t think it has anything to do with how smart we are. It has more to do with who knows the right people and how much you’re willing to pay. He never should have been president and he REALLY shouldn’t be reelected!
I would also say he isn’t legally allowed to be our PRESIDENT. AND WHY HAVE the American people impeached him yet? We must just be dumb.
Jeanette, the man is a psychopath and a pathological liar and has a personal magnetism that goes long with that, which give him a way of making people believe in him and follow him. It not really so much that people are dumb, but that they have an instinctual need to follow someone like that.
Hmmmm, let’s see. Who else was a psychopath, pathological liar and had personal magnetism? OH Yeah! HITLER!!!!!! IMPEACH OBAMA!!!
About 1-2% of the population are supposed to be psychopaths, doesn’t mean they are all exactly little Hitlers, but certainly this psychopath should not be the president of the US, for a number of different reasons. Obama’s religion under Jeremiah Wright does, though, actually have some distinct parallels the the racial concept of Nazism, in reverse.
This has been battled for years… Unfortunately, the courts don’t feel that WE THE PEOPLE have valid justification to bring the issue to a hearing. They claim we do not have standing. No one is being STUPID, the system is CORRUPT…
Toni, the system is corrupt, but there has also been a lot of confusion about the charges and focus, whether he was born in Kenya and all that. We have to concentrate on what’s important and all push together in the same direction and then we can send them running. They can only control us, when we allow them to do it.
Can I post this on my blog?
Of course. Take anything you like.
I would….hes illegal as can be…..so why pay him 650k a year the rest of his life?….its an illegal term!….id press charges in a heart beat!
All items signed by Barack Obama should be disqualified, Obama should be removed from office and placed directly into a federal prison for providing false information on government documents.
To me, the fact that Obama doesn’t qualify as a natural born citizen is obvious! Hello! His father had British citizenship! He was never a U.S. Citizen. That pretty much says it for me. Honestly, I truly don’t understand why anyone can think anything any different, given the simple facts. And no, it doesn’t matter where he was born. Oh, I get it that everyone is ignoring the 800 pound gorilla in the room, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t there. I totally agree. Absolutely every appointment he has made, every law, and every executive order he has ever signed needs to be completely invalidated. And yeah, he should be put on trial. Mainly, though, we need to elect a Senate and House that will pass laws preventing this from EVER happening again. I know it’s hard to pass a Constitutional Amendment, but one clarifying eligibility would be appropriate and should be a priority after the next election.
@klgrube – presidential eligibility is already clear, otherwise I agree with everything else you said. They don’t need to clarify it with a constitutional amendment, just start enforcing the damn law that already exists. You can pass a law to clarify, as long as it does not change the original intent. However, there has already been a law that clarified it and a supreme court case that clarified it. We don’t need to re-write the law, every time someone breaks it. That is too wishy-washy. You really don’t want this corrupt congress passing a law that would attempt to legalize Obama’s presidency. Calling for an amendment or another law would be giving them a big fat pass on the law as it already stands, which is already clear that (both) parents have to be Americans. If they had meant one parent, they would have written it that way. The Founder’s weren’t fools and simpletons.
Well I believe he was born in HAWAII and that state is part of the United States. Frankly I am tired of hearing crap about the president, I might not vote, but that is not going to stop me from speaking out. whether the president white, black, chinese or what ever they all bleed the same color of blood and they all have problems like we do. SO STOP THE CRAP.
Being born in the US does not satisfy the requirements. The framers of the Constitution intended the requirement to be that the president would have American parents. If they want to change that, fine, but they should do it the correct way, by having a real public debate and either by an amendment or a Supreme Court ruling. However, they are afraid the public would not support it, don’t think the states would approve an amendment and the Supreme Court is too chickenshit to rule on the case. So, they just change the Constitution by ignoring it. That is called diktat.
Whether he was born in Hawaii or not is irrelevant. He is NOT eligible to be President under the United States Constitution, because his father was a citizen of Kenya at the time of his birth. Just like all these children of illegal aliens that have been dumped on our doorstep as anchor babies, they nor Obama are “natural born” citizens of this country. Obama does have one leg up on illegals that at least one of his parents was a citizen. Rubio and Santorum, both of whom I like, cannot be President either, so this is not about Obama the person or his radical Communist policies, it is about the Constitution.
Right. Looks like we have an anchor president. The 14th amendment does not address or change the definition of natural born citizen. If they weren’t natural born before they ain’t natural born citizens after the amendment, at least not in the sense that the Founders, meant the eligibility requirements.
I am not sure we know all there is to know about Rubio and Santorum, but the law should apply equally to everyone.
Obama has showed contempt for the American flag, the constitution, the pledge of allegiance, and the National Anthem. He pays no allegiance to America. Only contempt. In one of his speeches he stated that Americans are arrogant and they need to be humbled. He’s the arrogant one and he definatly need to be humbled. Maybe impeachment would do it.
Yes, he does not just have divided allegiance, but contempt and loathing for the US and its traditions of democracy and individual liberty. The Founders wrote the law to prevent such people from becoming the commander-in-chief. The spirit of the Founders will reach out from the grave and put this usurper down, if we will just unite on the facts, follow their intent and apply the law as it is written.
He’s not a natural born citizen.
Interesting that you failed to highlight this from above, 39th Congress, 1st session:
“but, sir, I may be allowed to say further, that I deny that the Congress of the United States ever had the power or color of power to say that any man born within the jurisdiction of the United States, not owing a foreign allegiance, is not and shall not be a citizen of the United States. Citizenship is his birthright, and neither the Congress nor the States can justly or lawfully take it from him. ”
I REPEAT– “Citizenship is his birthright, and neither the Congress nor the States can justly or lawfully take it from him.”
This discussion is just silly– it has always been the law that a child born in the U.S. of one citizen parent is also a citizen. Children born in the U.S. with one parent who is a citizen do not apply for citizenship because they are automatically citizens, and even children born of two illegal alien parents are considered natural born citizens. As it says above, “Citizenship is his birthright”.
You are not going to be able to rewrite history just because you hate our president— and these ridiculous comments that claim Obama is a psychopath? How absurd! Where do you people get this stuff?
If you think Obama isn’t a citizen, why don’t you take it to court? Your case will be dismissed promptly, I am convinced, but if you are so sure of yourselves, collect some money and take it to court.
The Constitutional requirement is not that the candidate be a “citizen”, but that the candidate be a “natural-born citizen.” There is a difference. Anyway, the passage you cite above uses the key phrase, “not owing a foreign allegiance.” Obama had foreign allegiance at birth, because his father was Kenyan and he had Kenyan citizenship at birth.
The term, natural born citizen, was used by the philosophers of Natural Law, of which the Founders were very familiar and that meaning was the intent of the framers of the Constitution, that the parents be American citizens, not the bastard son of a communist-sympathizing Kenyan goat-herder and polygamist on a student visa. This definition of the term and original intent of the framers of the Constitution was confirmed in the first naturalization law and in case law, since that time.
Giving a speech in Congress is not the procedure for changing the Constitution, the amendment process is. There are people already taking this to court all over the country. One lawsuit charges the DNC with fraud, because they certainly knew that he was not constitutionally eligible.
Of course, it is always an uphill battle to sue a president and for that reason we are trying to inform the public and rally them to put pressure on public officials to enforce the law and uphold the Constitution. By next fall, I hope that a large fraction of the American public will realize that he is not constitutionally eligible to be president. The truth eventually comes out.
When Obama makes ridiculous claims, such as he can transform the world, he can heal the earth and stop the rise of the oceans and compares himself to Gandhi, that is where we get the idea that he is a megalomaniac and a psychopath.
LBJ was the first to confer citizenship to the illegal aliens who came into the USA illegally to drop a kid on U.S. soil .. They had NO ALLEGENCE TO THE U. S. Flag and were still under the jurisdiction of a foreign Government. It is called birth right citizenship and until the 14th amendment is interpreted in Congress or SCOTUS. the USA will be over run with these folks whose first act of entering the USA is an illegal act. Why is the Federal government rewarding criminal acts. A racket that may still be ongoing is Tourist Birthism.. They come here specifically to give birth and then claim all of the goodies. When the child turns 18 he can enter the USA and bring in an unlimited number of relatives and that is called Chain Migration. They are destroying our Social Security Trust Fund because all of the welfare paid out to illegal aliens comes right out of the Social Security Trust Fund. You can have welfare for the citizens but when it is given freely to illegal aliens who break our laws you cannot have both welfare and an open border. Joe Biden will bankrupt the USA with this invasion of illegal aliens and little children whose parents have throw away children and use them in a criminal manner. The USA is the only country in the entire world who confers birth right citizenship AKA ANCHOR BABIES. We are no longer a country with open borders and the most generous welfare benefits in the world. They will just keep on invading the former USA..
This is horror!
Get it in your head, he is a Communist and is out to distroy our Country!
give him the boot and show him the door…to his new prison cell!!!
When Obama was birthed in Hawaii –it was a territory and the mother had to be 18 to confer U.S. citizenship.I do believe that Obama was just a paid last name for a child who was fathered by a married man.. Name was Frank Marshall Davis. He was a Communist from Chicago and a journalist.. He was so toxic that should we go into WW2 he was to be incarcerated for the duration of the war. He fled to Hawaii and was a friend of Anne Dunham’s parents. They were a communist family. Frank. mentioned in Obama’s books was married to a WHITE heiress and they had 5 children.. I saw a family photo of FMD children and Obama just looked as though he also belonged in that photo. Obama was raised in Communism and ISLAM. I doubt the USA shall ever recover from the damage he did to the USA–The debt–Obamacare. the corruption of our political system, his warmongering. the wealth he amassed, the taxpayers spent more on Obama travel and presidency than any other in the history of the USA. He was a subversive and I do believe plotted with foreign heads of state against the USA.. He was a liar and when caught he just shrugged it off. His Attorney general was probably the most corrupt in U.S. history and I believe he threw the 2012 election with the use of Dominion machines.. It was the first time voters complained of watching a reversal of their vote as it was processed in front of them. His mother posed in the nude in FMD. Apartment–Frank sold the photos. Until recently you could ask to see photos of Obama’s Naked Mama. FMD also wrote porno books and in one of them he wrote of impregnating an underage girl named Anne. All records that could be still sealed and many other records also disappeared. Obama’s SSA card belonged to a Connecticut. man who was a French born naturalized USA citizen–never married retired to and died in Hawaii and Granny Dunham was working in the court house in Hawaii when she snagged the perfect social security card for Obama.. Only problem the subject who owned it was born in the late 1800s..Nothing was done for Social security fraud. to Obama.
