Mr. Toobin and Mr. Cooper
I would like to point out that your intellectual dishonesty regarding the Constitutional eligibility of Barack Obama.
First, off Vattel is specific, § 212. Citizens and natives.
The citizens are the members of the civil society; bound to this society by certain duties, and subject to its authority, they equally participate in its advantages. The natives, or natural-born citizens, are those born in the country, of parents who are citizens.
continuing on in the same section; 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.
Let’s review what Obama says about himself.
“When Barack Obama Jr. was born on Aug. 4,1961, in Honolulu, 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.
What does the United States Constitution say;
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.
What did the first United States Supreme Court Chief Justice state to George Washington?
Permit me to hint whether it would not be wise and seasonable to provide a strong check to the admission of foreigners into the administration of our national government ; and to declare expressly that the command in chief of the American army shall not be given to, nor devolve on any but a natural born citizen.
I remain, dear sir,
Your faithful friend and servant,
How does Barach Obama with a foreign father, free from foreign influence?
Why does the Kenyan Government state that Barack Obama was born in Kenya?
James Orengo, full quote; “If America was living in a situation where they feared ethnicity and did not see itself as a multiparty state or nation, how could a young man born here in Kenya, who is not even a native American, become the President of America?
The current Gov of Hawaii Neil Ambercrombie has stated there is no proof that Obama was born in Hawaii. Tim Adams, former election worker in Hawaii has
stated the same, there is no Birth Certificate in Hawaii for Barack Obama.
The COLB that has been posted is a fabrication and forgery. I have an extensive blog that covers the Obama COLB forgery, newspaper artciles that state ‘Kenyan-born’, statements from the Kenyan Parliment.
Next time when asked, please point to the extensive newspaper articles that state ‘Kenyan-Born’ Barack Obama even when running CNN host’s and so called legal experts have time and again, proven their intellectual dishonesty and outright fabrication of lies regarding an illegal
undocumented foreigner Barack Abdullah Hussein Obama.
Please advice when the United States Constitution was amended to allow ‘anyone born’ in the United States the right and privilege of the Presidency.
Where in the 14th Amendment does it grant ‘Natural Born Citizenship’ to anyone?
Alexander Porter Morse
A natural-born citizen has been 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. NATURAL-BORN CITIZEN OF THE UNITED STATES. Eligibility for the Office of President. Alexander Porter Morse. 66 Albany LJ 99 .
In Elk v. Wilkins 112 U.S. 94, 5 S.CT. 41, 28 L.ED. 643 (1884), the court ruled that native Indians were not U.S. citizens, even if they later severed their ties with their tribes. The words “subject to the jurisdiction thereof,” the court held, mean “not merely subjct in some respect or degree to the jurisdiction of the United States, but completely subject to their political jurisdiction, and owing them direct and immediate allegiange.” Most Indians could not meet the test. “Indians born within the territorial limits of the United States, members of, and owing immediate allegiance to, one of the Indian Tribes, (an alien through dependent power,) although in a geographical sense born in the United States, are no more ‘born in the United States and subject to the jurisdiction thereof,’*** then the children of subjects of any foreign government born within the domain of that government ***. Id. at 102.
a. Acquisition of U.S. citizenship by birth abroad to a U.S. citizen parent is governed by Federal statutes. Only insofar as Congress has provided in such statutes, does the United States follow the traditionally Roman law principle of ?jus sanguinis? under which citizenship is acquired by descent.
Per the Naturalization Act of 1790 the closest Act from the Adoption of the United States Constitution.
The original United States Naturalization Law of March 26, 1790 (1 Stat. 103) provided the first rules to be followed by the United States in the granting of national citizenship. This law limited naturalization to immigrants who were “free white persons” of “good moral character”. It thus, left out indentured servants, slaves, free blacks, and later Asians. While women were included in the act, the right of citizenship did “not descend to persons whose fathers have never been resident in the United States….” Citizenship was inherited exclusively through the father.
Citizenship was inherited exclusively through the father, jus sanguinis.
Bloodright inheritance, Jus sanguinis (Latin: right of blood) is a social policy by which citizenship is not determined by place of birth, but by having a parent(s) who are citizens of the nation.
In closing take note from a recent newspaper article from Zanzibar; The Citizen
For more than 200 years US citizen could not pick a president who has roots outside the country.
