WHY THE “NATURAL BORN CITIZEN’ CLAUSE OF OUR CONSTITUTION IS IMPORTANT AND WORTH PRESERVING!!
WHY THE “NATURAL BORN CITIZEN’ CLAUSE OF OUR CONSTITUTION IS IMPORTANT AND WORTH PRESERVING!!
YOU HAVE TO WONDER WHY THIS SIMPLE CONSTITUTIONAL REQUIREMENT TO BE ELIGIBLE TO BE PRESIDENT HAS BEEN VIOLATED SO EASILY BY OUR ELECTED OFFICIALS??? OBAMA WAS HAND-PICKED AND ‘NOT’ A NATURAL BORN CITIZEN- CONGRESS KNEW IT AND PROTECTED HIM!! IS IT BECAUSE OF THE IMPROBABLE POSSIBILITIES OF A MUSLIM, ISIS MEMBER, OR SOME UNPATRIOTIC ANTI-CONSTITUTIONAL WORLD ORDER MEMBER BYPASSING THE CITIZENSHIP REQUIREMENT IS ALREADY BEING SLATED TO BE A PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE DOWN THE ROAD, AND BECAUSE OF THIS WILL SET A PRECEDENT, AND ALLOWED TO DO SO???
It was the fear of foreign influence invading the Office of Commander in Chief of the military that prompted John Jay, our first U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice, to write to George Washington the following letter dated July 25, 1787: “Permit me to hint, whether it would 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 Commander in Chief of the American army shall not be given to nor devolve on, any but a natural born Citizen (underlying "born" in the original). Jay’s recommendation did make it into the Constitution. Article II, Sec. 1, cl. 5 of the Constitution provides in pertinent part: “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. . .”
In this clause and in Articles I, III, and IV, the Founding Fathers distinguished between "Citizen" and "natural born Citizen." Per the Founders, while Senators and Representatives can be just “citizens,” the President must be a "natural born Citizen." Through this clause, the Founders sought to guarantee that the ideals for which they fought would be faithfully preserved for future generations of Americans. The Founders wanted to assure that the Office of President and Commander in Chief of the Military, a non-collegial and unique and powerful civil and military position, was free of all foreign influence and that its holder has sole and absolute allegiance, loyalty, and attachment to the U.S. The “natural born Citizen” clause was the best way for them to assure this. That the “natural born Citizen” clause is based on undivided allegiance and loyalty can be seen from how the Founders distinguished between "citizen" and "natural born Citizen."
This distinction is based on the law of nations which became part of our national common law. According to that law as explained by E. Vattel in, _The Law of Nations_ (1758), Vol.1, Section 212, Des Citoyens et Naturels, a "citizen" is a member of the civil society. To become a "citizen" is to enter into society as a member thereof. On the other hand, Vattel wrote that a native or indigenes (written in French as /les naturels/ or /indigenes/) or “natural born Citizen” as the term later became translated from French into English, is a child born in the country of two citizen parents who have already entered into and become members of the society. Vattel also tells us that it is the “natural born Citizen” who will best preserve and perpetuate the society. This definition of the two distinct terms has been adopted by many United States Supreme Court decisions.
(The Venus, 12 U.S. 253 (1814) and Minor v. Happersett, 88 U.S. 162 (1874) to cite just two.) With the presidential qualification question never being involved, neither the 14th Amendment (which covers only "citizens" who are permitted to gain membership in and enter American society by either birth on U.S. soil or by naturalization and being subject to the jurisdiction of the United States), nor Congressional Acts (8 U.S.C. Sec. 1401), nor any case law (e.g. U.S. v. Wong Kim Ark, 169 U.S. 649 (1898)) has ever changed the original common law definition of a “natural born Citizen.” This amendment and laws have all dealt with the sole question of whether a particular person was going to be allowed to enter into and be a member of American society and thereby be declared a "citizen." The 14th Amendment did not involve Article II, let alone define what a “natural born Citizen” is.
Never having been changed, the original constitutional meaning of a "natural born Citizen" prevails today. We can also see from these definitions that a “citizen” could have more than one allegiance and loyalty (acquiring allegiance from one’s foreign parents or from foreign soil) but a “natural born Citizen” can have only one and that is to America (soil and parents are all united in one nation). The original definition of "natural born Citizen" gives our Constitutional Republic the best chance of having a President and Commander in Chief of the Military who has sole and absolute allegiance, loyalty, and attachment to the United States. By satisfying all conditions of this definition, all other avenues of acquiring other foreign citizenships and allegiances (jus soli or by the soil and jus sanguinis or by descent) are cut off.
Having all other means of acquiring other foreign citizenships or allegiances cut off is unity of citizenship which is what the President must have at the time of birth. Additionally, by requiring the child’s parents to be U.S. citizens best assures that those parents most likely will have absorbed American customs and values which, in turn, they will transmit to their child. The “natural born Citizen” clause serves a critical purpose today and must be enforced in every Presidential election. The President has immense power, both civil and military.
The clause assures the American people that their President does not have any conflicting allegiances or loyalties. In our nuclear world, it will avoid having a President who may hesitate to act quickly and decisively in a moment of crisis due to some internal psychological conflict of allegiance or loyalty. It will avoid any foreign nation expecting and pressuring the President to act in their best interest instead of that of America. The clause gives the American people the best chance that they will not be attacked from within through the Office of President. Knowing the President is a “natural born Citizen,” the American people will trust their President with their lives.
Finally, such a President can expect that the military will give him or her full trust and obedience. When President Obama was born in 1961, under the British Nationality Act of 1948, both his father and he were British subjects/citizens. In 1963, they both became Kenyan citizens. In fact, Mr. Obama’s father was never even a legal resident or immigrant of America. Hence, regardless of where Mr. Obama was born or that he may be a United States citizen under the 14th Amendment, he is not an Article II “natural born Citizen” and not eligible to be President. This ineligibility has absolutely nothing to do with his race or class but all to do with his being born with multiple citizenships and allegiances and not satisfying the strict eligibility requirements of Article II.
If someone believes that today the “natural born Citizen” clause no longer serves any useful purpose, then the proper way to change or abandon it is by way of constitutional amendment under Article V of the Constitution, not by usurpation. by:
Mario Apuzzo, Esq. OBAMA IS NOT A NATURAL BORN CITIZEN, AND EITHER IS TED CRUZ, AND WE AS AMERICANS SHOULD CARE AFTER THE 7+ YEARS OF HIS OBVIOUS ATTEMPT TO SABOTAGE THE ‘WILL’ OF OUR FOUNDING FATHERS, AND THE GUIDELINES SET FORTH IN THE CONSTITUTION!! THE RESULTS HAVE BEEN DEVASTATING TO NOT ONLY AMERICA, BUT TO OUR ALLIES AROUND THE WORLD, OUR MILITARY’S ONCE EXCEPTIONAL STANDING IN THE WORLD, AND OUR AGENDA OR SPREADING DEMOCRACY THROUGH OUT THE WORLD, AND KEEPING AMERICA SAFE!!!! OBAMA’S FATHER WAS MUSLIM, AND BURIED AS ONE!
Obama, a devout Muslim, was quoted telling Obama Jr. "What your grandfather respected was strength. Discipline. This is also why he rejected the Christian religion, I think. For a brief time, he converted to Christianity, and even changed his name to Johnson. But he could not understand such ideas as mercy towards your enemies, or that this man Jesus could wash away a man's sins. To your grandfather, this was a foolish sentiment, something to comfort women.
Obama Sr. married fellow University of Hawaii student Anna Dunham, an 18-year-old white anthropology major. Anna gave birth to a son on August 4th, 1961. in Honolulu. Obama Sr., a Muslim, chose the Muslim Koranic name, Barack Hussein Obama, for his son. The middle name "Hussein" to honor Muslim grandfather Hussein Onyango Obama. Anna divorced Obama Sr. when Obama Jr. was 6 to marry Lolo Soetoro, an Indonesian Muslim. Soetoro moved his new family to Indonesia, the world’s most populous Muslim country. Obama Jr's Muslim schooling Soetoro enrolled Obama Jr. in an Indonesian Catholic school and later in one of Jakarta's Muslim controlled public schools.
Barry's primary school teacher said he registered as a Muslim and that he attended Koranic religious class. "At that time, Barry was also praying in a Catholic way, but Barry was Muslim. He was registered as a Muslim because his father was Muslim." He went to the mosque," boyhood buddy Zulfin Adi told the Times. "My whole family was Muslim, and most of the people I knew were Muslim," In his autobiography, ‘Dreams from My Father,’ Obama mentioned studying the Quran and describing the public school as "a Muslim school." Obama Jr. denies that he has ever been a Muslim, He says he is a Christian with "deep faith rooted in the Christian tradition.
" He points to his membership in the Trinity United Church of Christ, which bears the motto "Unashamedly Black and Unapologetically Christian." Trinity United's website declares its congregation to be "an African people" who remain true to "our native land, the mother continent, the cradle of civilization." Barack Hussein Obama IS NOT AN American.
_ HIS HEART BELONGS to AFRICA.” RemIpRev NOW LETS TAKE A LOOK AT LYING TED CRUZ’S ROOTS, AND HIS FATHER……. INTERESTING PARALLELS, AND ALSO NOT A ‘NATURAL BORN CITIZEN’……… TED CRUZ’S DAD’S CONNECTED TO LEE HARVEY OSWALD, NEW ORLEANS “HANDS OFF CUBA” SHAM AND DALLAS 1963! (David Zephyr) I have written several DU's by private email over the last months about my research into Ted Cruz's father's inconsistent personal histories he has provided over the years. Rafael Cruz's stories didn't add up.
Then there was the Dallas / New Orleans connection...and then Rafael's fleeing to Canada and disappearing for years before returning to the US where his son wound up employed by the Bush Crime Family. When I found the real timetable of Rafael's actual whereabout between New Orleans and Dallas though the rubble of his many lies about his past, I began to write emails to many knowledgeable about the assassination. As I a am old and almost blind, it is hard for me to post here at the DU anymore, but this is something I've been quietly working on since the Summer of 2015.
Cuban Rafael Cruz, a pro-Batista, CIA connected Cuban in exile met his wife in New Orleans (home of Oswald, Guy Bannister, David Ferry, Clay Shaw and the great Jim Garrison). New Orleans was ground zero for the CIA's Cuban manned "Operation Mongoose", the Bay of Pigs and as we all know, the JFK Assassination. Anyone familiar with the assassination and the works of Mark Lane, Jim Garrison, Jim Marrs and David Lifton...and many more will be stunned by this troubling information.
It also seems that Cuban Rafael Cruz was also in Dallas, or nearby, the day of John Kennedy was assassinated. Rafael Cruz fled to Canada shortly after Kennedy's assassination to work in the "oil business". The oil business? Like Zapata Oil, the CIA front company run by George Herbert Walker Bush? Yeah, that oil business. Rafael Cruz returned to the United States after Nixon had been elected and the Bay of Pigs/JFK Assassination was put to rest for a while.
He returned illegally to the United States with his son Rafael Eduardo "Ted" Cruz. Ted Cruz got connections into Princeton and Harvard and went to work directly for the Bush Family where he met his wife, Heidi Cruz, who was also working for the Bush Family. So how was it that Ted Cruz got right into the Bush Family Cabal so easily? His father, Rafael had favors to be paid back. Allen Dulles is long dead, but George Herbert Walker is still alive...and GHB knows Ted Cruz very, very well. Any surprise why Neil Bush is in Ted Cruz's executive campaign inner circle?
OK. Here is it...finally, at long last breaking and great credit to Wayne Madsen -- regardless of how you may feel about him -- for having the guts to point and say "Behold the Man!"
Story from Wayne Madsen...and it's only the tip of the iceberg. WHAT’S MY POINT? I THINK WE ALL KNOW WHY OBAMA CAN’T CALL OUR ISIS ENEMY’S FOR WHAT THEY TRULY ARE, ‘RADICAL ISLAMIC TERRORISTS,’ AND WHEN IT COMES TO CRUZ, WE CAN’T AFFORD TO HAVE ANOTHER SILVER TONGUED LIAR TO BE ABLE TO CON HIS WAY PAST THE CONSTITUTION’S CITIZENSHIP ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENT, AND LIKE OBAMA, ABUSE THE OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENT AND BYPASS THE CONGRESS WITH CRUZ’S VERSION OF THAT FAMOUS OBAMA’S ‘PEN AND PHONE’!! OBAMA NEEDED HELP TO BE ABLE TO CARRY OUT HIS SOCIALIST AGENDA OF DESTROYING AMERICA FROM WITHIN, AND CHANGING THE FACE OF AMERICA AT HOME AND AROUND THE WORLD, AND I THINK WE ALL KNOW WHO THE MEMBERS OF THIS GLOBALIST/ SOCIALIST OLIGARCHY ARE…... AND THEY ARE THE 2 POLITICAL PARTIES WHO ARE HOLDING THEIR FIXED PRIMARIES, WITH THE HELP THE BRIBED MEDIA, FOR THE 2016 ELECTIONS! LET’S TAKE A LOOK BACK AT THE GREAT OBAMA’S UNCONSTITUTIONAL HIT PARADE, AND SOME OF HIS ACTIONS AGAINST OUR ONCE GREAT AND CONFIDENT MILITARY, AND UNDERSTAND WHY BEING A ‘NATURAL BORN CITIZEN’ IS THE FIRST THING THAT NEEDS TO BE FOLLOWED, AND OUTLINED AS A REQUIREMENT IN THE CONSTITUTION!!! IF YOU BELIEVE THAT THERE WOULD HAVE BEEN A CHANCE THAT A FAMILY OF ‘NATURAL BORN CITIZENS,’ WOULD HAVE EVER CONJURED UP SUCH ATROCITIES AGAINST AMERICA WITHOUT HAVING A SPECIFIC AGENDA OF BRINGING DOWN AMERICA FROM WITHIN, AND WORSE THAN THAT, BEING SUPPORTED BY OUR ELECTED OFFICIALS WHO TOOK AN OATH…
"I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, PROTECT AND DEFEND THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES,” THEN THERE IS SOMETHING REALLY WRONG WITH YOUR PERCEPTION OF REALITY WHEN IT COMES TO THE VISION OF OUR FOUNDING FATHERS, AND THE CONSTITUTION!!.......
