"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" - US Constitution, Article 2, Section 1
Is Barack Obama legally a Natural Born Citizen, as the US Constitution requires, and therefore legally eligible to serve as President? This question was raised long before the 2008 election and Obama has continued the fight, since then, to prevent it from being answered. Recently, Obama allowed the release of a digital image of an alleged birth document to settle the matter in the minds of the general public as to whether he was born in America. However, Obama continues the fight to prevent legal examination of the evidence to answer the legal question.
The status of Natural Born Citizen is much more strict than that of Citizen and Obama may not meet its criteria. His resistance to legal examination indicates that he is aware of this.
Why Must a President be a Natural Born Citizen?
The Founders were rightfully concerned that if a person with foreign loyalties and/or foreign ideology became President, then that power would allow "fundamental transformation" of the United States into... something else. Every public servant swears an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign or domestic. A person steeped in belief systems hostile to Americanism is such an enemy.
Obama was raised as a Muslim in Indonesia in his youth. He was then raised by his Marxist Grandparents. His transition into manhood and "black identity" was under the wing of a notorious Communist named Frank Marshall Davis. His political career was launched by a Communist terrorist named William Ayers, member of the Weather Underground, violently devoted to destruction (fundamental transformation) of the American System. The Communist Party USA worked hard to get Obama elected. In office, Obama appointed hard-core Communists such as Van Jones to run our nation. His science czar, John Holdren, has asserted the goal is to "de-develop" the United States.
Obama's foreign loyalties include an affiliation with a Marxist thug, Raila Odinga of Kenya. Obama personally traveled to Kenya in 2006 to campaign for this Marxist thug who is also closely tied to Kenya's Islamists. Odinga formed a charter of agreements with the Islamists:
* It pledges the support of Kenyan Moslems for Raila’s election. In return, as President of Kenya, Raila agrees to 14 actions, listed a) through n) on page two.
* Within 6 months re-write the Constitution of Kenya to recognize Shariah as the only true law sanctioned by the Holy Quran for Muslim declared regions.
* Within one year facilitate the establishment of a Shariah court in every Kenyan divisional headquarters. [Note: everywhere in Kenya, not just in "Muslim declared regions."]
* Popularize Islam, the only true religion… by ordering every primary school in Kenya in the regions to conduct daily Madrassa classes.
* Impose a total ban on open-air gospel crusades by worshippers of the cross…
* Outlaw gospel programs… on KBC, the National Broadcaster.
* Impose a total ban on the public consumption of alcoholic beverages…
* Impose an immediate ban on women’s public dressing styles that are considered immoral and offensive to the Muslim faith…
When Odinga lost the election, he proclaimed it was 'rigged' and spurred his supporters to engage in violence.
"About 50 parishioners were locked into the Assemblies of God church before it was set ablaze. They were mostly women and children. Those who tried to flee were hacked to death by machete-wielding members of a mob numbering 2,000."
Think about the foreign loyalties and ideologies of Barack Obama. They include Islam, Communism and a foreign Marxist thug helping spread Islamist conquest. More recently, his Communist allies have worked with Islamists to overthrow various Middle East nations including Egypt and Libya to put the Muslim Brotherhood in power, a group devoted to the destruction of Israel and then the "Great Satan", the USA.
Is there anything about Obama that IS American?
The Founders were wise to restrict the Presidency to only Natural Born Citizens.
Did Anyone Bother to Check the Candidates' Eligibility?
Long before the 2008 Presidential election, questions were raised about both candidates' eligibility under the Constitution to serve as President. Both candidates, John Sidney McCain (R) and Barack Hussein Obama (D) had potential issues in their past that could invalidate them.
Although a US Citizen, John McCain was not born within the United States. It was therefore necessary to determine whether he met the criteria to be a Natural Born Citizen.
Barack Obama personally weighed in on the matter of McCain's eligibility, co-sponsoring Senate Resolution 511, asserting that because John McCain's parents were both American Citizens and he was born on US-controlled soil, he was understood to be a Natural Born Citizen.
Whereas John Sidney McCain, III, was born to American citizens on an American military base in the PanamaCanal Zone in 1936:
Now, therefore, be it Resolved, That John Sidney McCain, III, is a `natural born Citizen' under Article II, Section 1, of the Constitution of the United States.
Thoroughly vetted by Congress and examination of the evidence, John McCain was declared a Natural Born Citizen and therefore eligible for the office of the Presidency.
Barack Obama also has issues in his past that raise legitimate questions as to whether he qualifies as a Natural Born Citizen. Was he born in the United States? Was he born to parents who were American Citizens? Has his legal status throughout his life been that of a US Citizen?
In response to these questions, the Democrat-controlled Congress refused to allow scrutiny of Barack Obama's past. The Democratic National Committee and Barack Obama fought off various lawsuits attempting to compel a legal examination of the question. Obama willfully concealed his school records, passports, birth documentation and other evidence from legal scrutiny.
Why all this effort to prevent legal verification of his eligibility? Obama does not meet the criteria imposed on John McCain, as his Father was a Kenyan national and British Subject, not an American Citizen. Furthermore, his past documentation may indicate he represented himself as a non-citizen.
The election process continued even though one candidate had not been legally certified as legally eligible for the job.
Media companies are required by the FCC to ensure a candidate's eligibility has been certified before giving him air time as a candidate - yet failed to do so.
Various public servants all along the way, who had sworn an oath to uphold and defend the US Constitution - failed to do so. Judges were presented with legal demands to allow "discovery" to compel Obama to produce his documents - yet failed to do so.
Despite their oath to uphold and defend the US Constitution against all enemies, foreign or domestic - they failed to do so.
Public servants allowed Barack Obama to go through the election process even as he willfully put up a wall of lawyers to prevent the Constitutional requirements from being verified.
Something has gone horribly wrong in America.
In legal terms, the unlawful taking of power is called a "coup". You just witnessed one.
Efforts to Uphold the Constitution
Prior to the election, a Democrat lawyer, Philip J. Berg, submitted a court demand that Obama's eligibility be verified by scrutiny of the relevant evidence, just as John McCain's had been. His concern was that if Obama was later found to be illegitimately in office, the repercussions would be serious. The response was chilling - Obama and the DNC put up a wall of lawyers to "block discovery", to prevent examination of the evidence that would confirm Obama's eligibility. Obama was placed into the White House despite this.
In response to this unlawful taking of power, the American People have tried to work within the system to rectify the situation. Various State governments as well as a series of Citizen court cases have tried, in vain, to compel Obama to allow legal examination of the evidence to verify his eligibility. Obama continues to block such efforts.
But wait, didn't he show the American People the "proof" already?
Barack Obama first presented a digital image of a "Certification of Live Birth" on a website to adjust public opinion on the matter. He did not allow this to be presented in a legal venue to answer the legal question.
After taking heat from Donald Trump, Obama presented a digital image of a Hawaiian birth certificate, again to adjust public opinion on the matter. He did not allow this to be presented in a legal venue to answer the legal question.
Who was fooled by this blatant manipulation? Were you?
This online digital image does not resolve the legal question - is he a Natural Born Citizen?
Commander in Chief of the US Military
Officer Terry Lakin
As President, Obama is our top military commander. He has an obligation to assure the military that he is legally holding that position and therefore his orders are legal. He has refused to demonstrate that he is legally in command. In response, a decorated Army officer, Terry Lakin, has refused deployment orders until such time as Obama allows certification that he is legally in command. Lakin provides this reasoning:
“The Constitution matters. The truth matters.
“For the first time in all my years of service to our great nation, and at great peril to my career and future, I am choosing to disobey what I believe are illegal orders, including an order to deploy to Afghanistan for my second tour of duty there. I will disobey my orders to deploy because I – and I believe all servicemen and women and the American people – deserve the truth about President Obama’s constitutional eligibility to the office of the presidency and the commander in chief.
“If he is ineligible, then my orders – and indeed all orders – are illegal because all orders have their origin with the commander in chief as handed down through the chain of command.”
Officer Lakin has been subjected to court martial and prison time - for demanding the US Constitution be upheld. Obama would rather see an officer under his command go to prison than allow that officer to know whether Obama is legally in command.
Let's get clear on this: The US Army chain of command now serves a usurper who has illegally taken command and is punishing one of its decorated officers who dared to insist the Constitution be upheld and defended. That's a coup.
Did I mention that something has gone horribly wrong in America?
Can Obama be Forced To Allow Certification of His Eligibility?
A slew of court cases have been initiated to compel Obama to allow certification of his eligibility. Obama and the DNC have actively worked with lawyers to block the efforts. Courts have repeatedly refused to take on the matter and none of them have done so on the grounds that Obama has already been legally certified. They have chosen other excuses, such as claiming that the US Citizen does not have "standing" to bring the matter to court. What is meant by that? A US Federal Court provided an explanation of standing:
Plaintiffs have encouraged the Court to ignore mandates of the Constitution; to disregard the limits on its power put in place by the Constitution; and to effectively overthrow a sitting president who was popularly elected by "We the People" - over sixty-nine million of the people. Plaintiffs have attacked the judiciary, including every prior court that has dismissed their claim, as unpatriotic and even treasonous for refusing to grant their requests and for adhering to the terms of the Constitution which set forth its jurisdiction. Respecting the constitutional role and jurisdiction of this Court is not unpatriotic. Quite the contrary, this Court considers commitment to that constitutional role to be the ultimate reflection of patriotism.
Notice what this says and does not say.
It says that the Citizen does not have standing because the court lacks the Constitutional authority to "overthrow a sitting president". This has gone as far as the Supreme Court, which has also dodged the issue. The Supreme Court's obligation is to hear matters of violations of the Constitution. Certainly the court could examine the evidence and reach a legal conclusion then leave it up to the appropriate authorities to handle enforcement. This is the normal process for court decisions.
It also asserts that Obama was elected by "We the People" - yet the Constitution invalidates that election if the candidate is not eligible. Has the court forgotten that we are a nation of laws, not of men? That the law overrides public opinion?
Why would the Supreme Court and other levels of public service, sworn to uphold the Constitution, evade this Constitutional issue?
Something has gone horribly wrong in America.
It appears to be a case of...
Fear of Consequences
The Democrat political machine invested a great deal of energy into casting Obama's candidacy as the "historic opportunity" to hand him the Presidency because of the color of his skin.
Obama "flew to New York for his speech to 600 prominent African-Americans, which included Bill Cosby, Spike Lee, David Dinkins, Stevie Wonder and Magic Johnson" - generating electoral support because of the color of his skin.
Al Sharpton fired up the black community inspiring them to right the wrongs of the past by voting for Obama because of the color of his skin.
Democrat pundits could not stop talking about his race - and claiming that any criticism of Obama's policies or ideology were because of the color of his skin.
Michelle Obama insisted she could only be proud of her country after electing a man because of the color of his skin.
Obama personally crowed about the achievement of electing a man because of the color of his skin:
"If there is anyone out there who still doubts that America is a place where all things are possible, who still wonders if the dream of our founders is alive in our time, who still questions the power of our democracy, tonight is your answer," Obama said, drawing raucous applause from a crowd gathered on a crisp autumn night.
Blatant racism was the core Democrat platform in the 2008 election. In fact, any effort to discuss Obama's anti-American ideology and policies was countered with cries that criticisms were only levied because of the color of his skin.
Given the emotional attachment generated for Obama because of the color of his skin, what happens if a court rules that Obama does not meet the criteria for Natural Born Citizen? What happens when the law is upheld and Obama is arrested for the greatest election fraud in US history, handcuffed and imprisoned?
Remember the Rodney King riots in Los Angeles? That's what happens on a nationwide scale.
Communists incited violent activities because of the color of Rodney King's skin.
Communists are not known to leave power willingly when their misdeeds are exposed. And they now have a lock-down on America.
They control our media - Lou Dobbs lost his CNN job after daring to mention Obama's fight to prevent eligibility verification.
They have the power in this nation, thanks to Americans forgetting who their true enemies are, to motivate students, unions and racial organizations to tear this nation apart from the inside.
Louis Farrakhan, an Obama admirer, demonstrated the power under his command with the "Million Man March".
Al Sharpton, Reverend Wright and other purveyors of racism will surely motivate their mobs.
The SEIU and other unions have demonstrated their willingness to engage in violence for the Leftist cause.
Collectively, they hold the threat of nationwide violence over the heads of our public servants, who were supposed to prevent Obama from taking the White House until he demonstrated eligibility. I contend that threat of violence is why Obama remains illegally in office despite his ongoing Constitutional defiance.
It's Not About The Birth Certificate
The Left have worked hard to steer any conversation on this matter to a question of "the birth certificate". They coined the term "birther" to imply that anyone questioning Obama's eligibility is ONLY questioning whether Obama was born in Hawaii. This was a setup, long in the making, preparing for the day Obama would present an alleged Hawaiian birth certificate on a website. Thus, the "birther" question is presumably answered and settled.
What a great trick!
Yet, the question all along has been whether Obama meets the criteria of Natural Born Citizen. Look how quickly the public was manipulated into forgetting this.
Obama's eligibility has not been legally demonstrated.
Where Do We Stand Today?
Today, America is ruled by an illegal Communist coup. They have successfully usurped our military, education, media, unions and political system to serve their interests. They have put their man into the White House and he appoints like-minded Czars to run our nation, circumventing Congress. They hold America hostage with the threat of violence that would lead to civil war.
This is the danger the Founders foresaw when they wrote the Constitutional mandate prohibiting someone like Barack Obama from becoming President. Yet, the Communists have defeated our Constitution in this illegal coup.
Has America been taken by its enemies without a fight?
Think About It.
