Dear Senator/Representative

Dear Senator/Representative,

1) You have sworn an oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States.

2) The Constitution makes a distinction between “natural born Citizen” and mere “Citizen”, and requires that modern-day Presidential candidates be a natural born citizen:

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;

3) The 14th Amendment only speaks to who is a “citizen”, not who is a “natural born citizen”.   The 14th Amendment does not lower the requirement to be eligible to the Office of President from “natural born citizen” to mere “citizen”.  

4) It is incorrect to assume that “natural born citizen” means “citizen born in the United States”.   The 1787 signers of the Constitution understood “natural born Citizen” as it was defined by natural law and described in the 1758 book:

The Law of Nations, or Principles of The Law of Nature applied to the conduct and affairs of Nations and Sovereigns, Book 1, Sections 212 and 215:

§ 212. Citizens and natives.

natural-born citizens, are those born in the country, of parents who are citizens. … children naturally follow the condition of their fathers, and succeed to all their rights. … The country of the fathers is therefore that of the children … 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.

§ 215. Children of citizens born in a foreign country.

It is asked whether the children born of citizens in a foreign country are citizens? The laws have decided this question in several countries, and their regulations must be followed.(59) By the law of nature alone, children follow the condition of their fathers, and enter into all their rights (§ 212); the place of birth produces no change in this particular …

Again, the 14th Amendment does not speak to who is a natural born citizen, it only speaks to who is a citizen.  Qualifying as a citizen under the 14th Amendment does not automatically qualify someone as a natural born citizen.  One must look at the citizenship of the parents, as well as birth location, to determine if someone qualifies as a natural born citizen.

Divorce records showthat Barack Hussein Obama married Stanley Ann Dunham Obama on February 2, 1961 and Barack Hussein Obama II was born August 4, 1961.   Barack Hussein Obama  was never a United States citizen.  He was first a British subject, and later a citizen of Kenya. 

By Natural Law, The Law of Nations, and The British Nationality Act of 1948, British citizenship was passedfrom the father, Barack Hussein Obama, to his son, Barack Hussein Obama II

Barack Hussein Obama II’s own campaign admits this at http://www.fightthesmears.com/articles/5/birthcertificate

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.

Natural-born citizens are those born in the country, of parents who are citizens.

To be a natural born citizen of the United States, three conditions must be met:
1) Born “in the country” (on U.S. soil).
2) Born to a father who is a U.S. citizen.
3) Born to a mother who is a U.S. citizen.

If any one of those conditions is not met, then the person is not a natural born citizen of the United States, and they are not eligible to hold the office of President of the United States and Commander in Chief of all of our Armed Forces.

Barack Hussein Obama II fails to meet the second condition (his father was not a United States citizen). He may also fail to meet the first condition (more evidence exists to show that he was born in Kenya than exists to show he was born in Hawaii), but that is superfluous. Barack Hussein Obama II is conclusively ineligible because he fails to meet the second condition, regardless of whether or not he meets the first condition.

It is the sworn duty of every Senator and Representative to support and defend the Constitution of the United States.  It is the sworn duty of every Senator and Representative to support the Article II Section 1 Constitutional requirement that our President be a natural born citizen of the United States, that is, born on United States territory to parents who are both United States citizens.  It is the sworn duty of every Senator and Representative to object to the election of any candidate who does not meet this Constitutional requirement.  It is the sworn duty of every Senator and Representative to object to the election of Barack Hussein Obama II, who was born a British citizen to a British father.

It is inexcusable to shirk your responsibility and claim that “it is up to the courts to decide” if they agree with the notion that the 14th Amendment, combined with a presumed Hawaiian birth, make Barack Hussein Obama II a “natural born citizen”.

  1. Ted says:

    Pass this challenge on to Congress as well!

    CHALLENGE (with answer), CAN ANYONE PROVE THIS WRONG?:–

    1. Constitution Article II requires USA President to be “natural born citizen”.

    2. BHO’s website admits his dad was Kenyan/British, not American, citizen when BHO was born.

    3. BHO is therefore not a “natural born citizen” (irrespective of Hawaiian birth or whether he may be a 14th Amendment “citizen” of USA) — confirmed in the Senate’s own McCain qualification resolution (that both parents must be citizens of USA) co-authored by BHO.

    4. Supreme Court has already docketed two upcoming conferences, 1/9/09 and 1/16/09 — between dates Congress counts electoral votes (1/8/09) and Presidential inauguration (1/20/09) — to address Berg Case and fashion relief on BHO’s eligibility to be President.

    5. Since the fact of BHO’s dad being Kenyan/British not in dispute, Supreme Court rules on Summary Judgment to enjoin BHO’s inauguration as President.

    6. Therefore, BHO is not inaugurated as President.

    7. Vice President Elect Biden is inaugurated Acting President under the 20th Amendment to serve until new President is determined — the procedure for which determination to be set out by Congress and/or the Supreme Court so long as in conformance with the Constitution.

    ANSWER TO ABOVE CHALLENGE

    IF, when counting the electoral votes, Congress WERE TO find by 1/8/09 that Obama — not being an Article II “natural born citizen” (father Kenyan/British, not American) — fails to qualify as President, Biden would become the full fledged President under 3 USC 19 (free to pick his own VP such as Hillary) AND THERE WOULD BE NO NEED FOR DEFERRAL TO THE SUPREME COURT to enjoin Obama’s inauguration relegating Biden to being merely Acting President under the 20th Amendment until a new President were duly determined.

    (The preferable choice, at least for the Democrats, would seem obvious.)

  2. Ted,

    I think the 20th Amendment applies regardless of the timing. Unless Biden received Electoral College votes for President (rather than EC votes for Vice-President), then Obama’s failure to qualify must lead to someone else being President. If only Obama and McCain received EC votes for President, and both are ineligible, we would have a case where the eligible VP would serve as P until a President shall have qualified.
