In the Madison Debates, on September 7, 1787, it was then that it was entered that "the President should be a natural- born Citizen," of which he bore no allegiance or citizenship to any other nation than that of the United States of America.
In the ratification of the Constitution by the State of New York; July 26, 1788
“That no Persons except natural born Citizens, or such as were Citizens on or before the fourth day of July one thousand seven hundred and seventy six, or such as held Commissions under the United States during the War, and have at any time since the fourth day of July one thousand seven hundred and seventy six become Citizens of one or other of the United States, and who shall be Freeholders, shall be eligible to the Places of President, Vice President, or Members of either House of the Congress of the United States.” …
“That the Court for the Trial of Impeachments shall consist of the Senate, the Judges of the Supreme Court of the United States….”
Because of the precariousness of the times, there was in the early days of our Republic, a demand for 100% allegiance and citizenship to the United States of America. You were either "all in" or you were to be excluded out. In the case of Barack Obama, for 2 years past his 21st birthday, he had split citizenship with Kenya and Great Britain (at the very least). Under Immigration Law, he needed to declare his oath of allegiance at age 21 to a United States Department of State official. Barack never took an oath to the United States until he was elected as an Illinois State Senator...and even then, they were just "muttering words" not unlike the Christian prayers he despised from that "parched nun" in Indonesia he remembered from his childhood, "muttering words" without substance to Barack, "words" bandied about that came with accepting the office.
US Constitution, Article 2, officially ratified on March 4, 1789 -- would therefore, in part, read:
"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."
In 1833, in Justice Joseph Story's Commentaries on the Constitution of the United States. § 1473
“It is indispensible too, that the president should be a natural born citizen of the United States; or a citizen at the adoption of the constitution, and for 14 years before his election. This permission of a naturalized citizen [to speak of those to who fought the Revolutionary War] to become President is an exception [read: "the only exception" -- Brianroy] from the great fundamental policy of all governments, to exclude foreign influence from their executive councils and duties. It was doubtless introduced (for it has now become by lapse of time merely nominal, and will soon become wholly extinct) out of respect to those distinguished revolutionary patriots who were born in a foreign land, and yet had entitled themselves to high honors in their adopted country. A positive exclusion of them from the office would have been unjust to their merits and painful to their sensibilities.
But the general propriety of the exclusion of foreigners, in common cases, will scarcely be doubted by any sound statesman. It cuts off all chances for ambitious foreigners, who might otherwise be intriguing for the office; and interposes a barrier against those corrupt interferences of foreign governments in executive elections, which have inflicted the most serious evils upon the elective monarchies of Europe. Germany, Poland, and even the pontificate of Rome, are sad, but instructive examples of the enduring mischiefs arising from this source.”
Obama's biological father was never a US Citizen, even by Barack's own auto-biographical admission: Barack Obama Sr. was a Kenyan National and a dual British Commonwealth citizen who studied in the USA under a transient / student visa. Hence, even by that fact alone, this makes Obama unconstitutional and a usurper of the Office of the Presidency by fraud.
When the Confederate States of America were formed, in their Constitution for the Provisional Government on March 2, 1861, they specifically followed the same formula:
"Article 2.3 No person, except a natural born citizen, or a citizen of one of the States of this Confederacy 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 the age of thirty-five years, and been fourteen years a resident of one of the States of this Confederacy."
When the South revised the language of their Confederate Constitution on March 11, 1861 they amended and moved the NBC clause to read:
"Article 2.7 No person except a natural-born citizen of the Confederate States, or a citizen thereof at the time of the adoption of this Constitution, or a citizen thereof born in the United States prior to the 20th of December, 1860, shall be eligible to the office of President; neither shall any person be eligible to that office who shall not have attained the age of thirty-five years, and been fourteen years a resident within the limits of the Confederate States, as they may exist at the time of his election." http://avalon.law.yale.edu/19th_century/csa_csa.asp
In Bute v. Illinois, 333 U.S. 640 (1948) @ 653, http://supreme.justia.com/us/333/640/case.html
states: “The burden of establishing a delegation of power to the United States or the prohibition of power to the states is upon those making the claim.”
Since Obama claims to be a United States Natural Born Citizen...it is Obama's obligation to prove that his father was a United States Citizen of any type AT THE TIME OF HIS ALLEGED BIRTH IN 1961 in order to hold the office.
Under 1961 US Law, Ann Dunham-Obama had not lived in the US 5 years past her 14th birthday to confer on Barack the citizenship Obama supporters so claim for him.
Since US Law relevant to the birth year of John McCain is relevant to John McCain's lack of standing also, by that same standard, all other arguments to change the NBC definition since 1961 are moot.
I say this especially in regard to those who cite re-definitions NOT according to United States Supreme Court Case Law, but ill-informed and Progressive and corrupted "opinions" of the last decade, seeking to reinvent the NBC definition from that known since the Colonial days and the founding years of the Republic, on through to 1961.
It is the FATHER that passes on the "natural born status" and "primary citizenship" of the child. The mother's nationality cannot contradict or over-ride the Father's passing on the "natural born status" to the child. Period!
Only in the case that the child has no "known" father, and only then, can the mother pass on NBC status.
In regard to the "not of age" mother -- by 1961 US Laws on Citizenship -- Ann Dunham-Obama was MOST CERTAINLY UNABLE to legally confer on Barack a United States Citizenship of an NBC status...clearly, that is settled Law!
The only thing lacking, until this year, is a filing having legal standing.
Even when someone "usurps" power in the US, those who wish to oppose the usurper are required to jump through legal hoops to satisfy the Law. This is why political and union corruption, and mafias, and other forms of organized crime are able to thrive for many years, and remain empowered as if they were legitimate, when they are later found out or ruled as NOT.
Since, in his own words, Obama the usurper has testified that his father was Barack Hussein Obama, Sr., the same foreign national who only lived in the United States as a foreign transient alien on a student visa...he must so vacate the Office immediately.
Welcome! Jesus Christ is my LORD and Savior! Romans 10:9-10,13; John 3:16
I am a Natural Born United States Citizen with NO allegiance or citizenship to any nation but my own, and will use this site as a hobby place of sorts to present my own political and religious viewpoints, as a genuine Constitutional Conservative and a genuine Christian Conservative.
Thank you for coming.
