1) Natural Born Citizens
Those born in the US or its territories AND whose parents are BOTH US citizens thereby having no loyalties to other nations at birth.
2) Naturalized citizens
Those originally citizens of another country who have legally immigrated here and choose to swear allegiance to the US as its citizens after meeting all requirements established by law.
3) US citizens by statute
Those citizens who are neither natural born nor naturalized, such as those born outside of the US and its territories but whose parents are both US citizens, and those born with one parent who is a US citizen and the other parent a citizen of another country (dual citizens).
Since U.S. military bases are considered U.S. territory, and his parents were both U.S. citizens, John McCain is considered a Natural Born Citizen. He is eligible to hold any political office in this country.
California Governor Arnold Schwartzenegger is an example of a Naturalized Citizen, who is eligible to hold any political office in this country except President (and presumably Vice-President) of the United States.
Barack Hussein Obama, even if born in Hawaii as he claims, was not born a Natural Born Citizen because his father was a British citizen and that gave him dual citizenship (both British and U.S.). Obama’s own web site says:
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.
Obama’s British citizenship at birth disqualifies him from being a “Natural Born” U.S. citizen (category 1), even if he was born a U.S. citizen (category 3).
The founders of our nation clearly did not want to allow those with divided loyalties (especially to Great Britain) to be eligible to become President of the United States. That is why being a Natural Born citizen it is a Constitutional prerequisite to become President. Barack Obama is not eligible to be President.
Add to that that primary source documentation in Indonesia lists his name as “Barry Soetoro” with country of citizenship: Indonesia. It appears that he was adopted by his step-father, Lolo Soetoro, and became an Indonesian citizen. If so, that means Barack/Barry gave up any U.S. Citizenship that he may have had.
Either of those issues (dual citizenship at birth, and later forfeiture of U.S. citizenship upon adoption by an Indonesian citizen) are sufficient to show that the candidate known as Barack Hussein Obama is not a Natural Born Citizen, and therefore ineligible to become President of the United States.
When Barack returned to the U.S., at best he became a Naturalized Citizen, but there is no evidence of that. If Barack did become a Naturalized Citizen, he is eligible to be a Senator, but not President. If Barack did not become a Naturalized Citizen, then he is still an Indonesian citizen an he is not he is eligible to hold any U.S. political office, including Senator.
Jakarta is the capital of Indonesia, the world’s most populous Muslim nation. If Barack Hussein Obama is still an Indonesian citizen, that helps explain why his book
The Audacity of Hope: Thoughts on Reclaiming The American Dream
which has a straightforward translation into Bahasa Indonesia as
Keberanian Harapan: Pemikiran Untuk Meraih Kembali Impian America
was instead given the title
Menerjang Harapan: Dari Jakarta Menuju Gedung Putih
which is not a translation, but rather a completely different title:
Assault Hope: From Jakarta to the White House
An American expatriate who has lived in Indonesia for many years says:
The words “menerjang” (assault or attack) and “harapan” (hope or expectation) make sense when used separately, but used together, the term “menerjang harapan” makes no sense in Indonesian. But while the term makes no sense, it does however present a mental picture to the native Indonesian speaker, the imagery of a “hopeful assault” a “struggle for victory” or to put it more bluntly, a “jihad”, or as the Indonesians see it, Obama’s “jihad” for the Whitehouse. For the native Indonesian speaker, this figurative language creates a mental image whereas the translation of the book’s title can actually come to mean “Jihad: From Jakarta To The Whitehouse“.
It is highly likely that an Indonesian citizen, who has written a book Assault Hope: From Jakarta to the White House, is on the verge of turning that hope into reality: bringing assault/Jihad from the capital of the world’s most populous Muslim country (Jakarta, Indonesia) to the Presidency of the United States (the White House).
This is the same man who said:
But my journey is part of a larger journey– one shared by all who’ve ever sought to … bring an Empire to its knees.
In a post-9/11 world, we must take this very seriously.
The “Natural Born Citizen” clause was meant to prevent and protect us from this assault.
The Candidate known as Barack Hussein Obama / Barry Soetoro is NOT a Natural Born Citizen of the United States of America. He is NOT Constitutionally eligible to become President.
