If you 'believe' you are a USCitizen than you are not a natural born citizen..

If you are a natural born citizen, you can not be a USCitizen ..


The american civil war left this grey area open (not a lawful war) and a new citizenship had to be created for Lincolns "new nation" because there was none with the Fed as supreme, all citizenship prior had the states supreme.

I took this offline but I don't remember where:

1. Birthplace important AND parentage important -- a "natural born" citizen is any person born in the US mainland (includes Alaska and Hawaii) AND born of US citizen parents (that's two) -- think Reagan

2. Birthplace important AND parentage not important -- a "native born" citizen (also considered a 14th Amendment citizen) is any person born in the US mainland (includes Alaska and Hawaii) -- one or both of the parents may be foreign nationals --think Obama (I think)

3. Birthplace not important AND parentage important -- a citizen "by statute" is any person born of a US citizen parent(s) outside the US mainland -- think McCain

4. Birthplace not important AND parentage not important -- a "naturalized" citizen is a citizen as the result of a process (i.e. by federal statute as bestowed to Congress under Art. I, Sec. 8, Cl. 4) -- think Arnold Schwarzenegger.

The definition of the “Unity of Citizenship Theory” is that the child is born on U.S. soil to two parents, both of whom are U.S. citizens at the time the child is born. Therefore, one or both parents could have been born in another country but immigrated to the U.S., taken the citizenship class and the Oath of Allegiance in which previous foreign allegiance is abandoned, and become a U.S. citizen before the birth of the child. As long as both parents are citizens at the time of the child’s birth, he or she is considered “natural born.”

What about the first 7 presidents + the 9th president who were born as british subjects? Sure they and their parents were born on our land, but that land was british land. Were they eligible to be president?

What about the 21st president Chester Arthur who like Obama had british citizenship through his father. Arthurs's father was born in Ireland and didn't become naturalized until 14 years after chester was born.

I think anyone who is naturalized should be eligible for president. Especially since the 14th ammendment - section 1 gives equal rights to all citizens, either born or naturalized in the United States, so Obama is eligible for president even if he was born out of the u.s. or if one of his parents wasn't. A u.s. citizen.

You have to think of why they have the natural born citizen requirement in the first place.

I would think that the founding fathers would want our president to have grown up like any tyipcal American...with typical American parents.
Lets face it, someone (like Obama) who grows up with a Kenyan father is not going to have the same life or childhood as a person with two American parents. They may not necessarily share the same values as the natural born citizen. It's just not the way it was supposed to be. Our President needs to 100% represent US...and in no way be influenced by another nation or culture. They have to be RAISED American to BE American in my opinion...

This is totally aside from the largest concern that another nation or entity could be trying to take over our government by planting a President...
This can be easily accomplished with enough cash. Just look at the records folks; Presidents who spend the most, WIN.
Here's what we can do to change the world, right now, to a better ride. Take all that money we spend on weapons and defenses each year and instead spend it feeding and clothing and educating the poor of the world, which it would pay for many times over, not one human being excluded, and we could explore space, together, both inner and outer, forever, in peace.

could have been prevented with $1000 of care if only they'd
had insurance? That is the way it is now.

A bill to amend section 301 of the Immigration and Nationality Act to clarify those classes of individuals born in the United States who are nationals and citizens of the United States at birth.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1283996


A BILL

To amend section 301 of the Immigration and Nationality Act to clarify those classes of individuals born in the United States who are nationals and citizens of the United States at birth.
Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled,

SECTION 1. SHORT TITLE.
This Act may be cited as the ‘Birthright Citizenship Act of 2011’.

SEC. 2. CITIZENSHIP AT BIRTH FOR CERTAIN PERSONS BORN IN THE UNITED STATES.

(a) In General- Section 301 of the Immigration and Nationality Act (8 U.S.C. 1401) is amended--
(1) by inserting ‘(a) IN GENERAL- ’ before ‘The following’;
(2) by redesignating subsections (a) through (h) as paragraphs (1) through (8), respectively; and
(3) by adding at the end the following:

‘(b) Definition- Acknowledging the right of birthright citizenship established by section 1 of the 14th amendment to the Constitution, a person born in the United States shall be considered ‘subject to the jurisdiction’ of the United States for purposes of subsection (a)(1) only if the person is born in the United States of parents, one of whom is--

‘(1) a citizen or national of the United States;
‘(2) an alien lawfully admitted for permanent residence in the United States whose residence is in the United States; or
‘(3) an alien performing active service in the armed forces (as defined in section 101 of title 10, United States Code).’
.

(b) Applicability- The amendment made by subsection (a)(3) shall not be construed to affect the citizenship or nationality status of any person born before the date of the enactment of this Act.

If that is the wording of the bill going before committee as what determines citizenship, then Mr. Obama doesn't qualify as his father was NEVER a naturalized citizen of the United States.

That man just fails period and I can NOT believe Congress is allowing that man to give our troops orders. Who IS this guy?

But this bill is about the "anchor baby" issue, not eligibility for Presidential office.

Not really a shill. The point the poster is making is legit, but they fail to understand what they wrote.

Each of these Presidents met the Constitutional requirements as "natural born" because either A) one parent was born in the US and one parent naturalized or B) Both parents immigrated and naturalized later after their child was born in the US.

So what the poster posted is true, they just didn't read what they posted:)

Friend sent this to me....not sure of the author, and I know it's very well in line with other posts we've read here, but this guy does an excellent job of pointing out the REAL issues in the birth certificate....

"Yesterday the White House supposedly released the president's original birth certificate.

Here's the problem: I offend just about everyone. It's not my intention to offend anyone, but it's unavoidable at times. I occasionally point out where the Republican party has failed the country. While this makes Democrats happy, it also offends Republicans.

I also point out where the Democrat party has failed the country. While this makes Republicans happy, it also offends Democrats.

So by offending Democrats and Republicans at one time or another, I manage to offend over 95% of the population. Again, that's not my intent, it's just the nature of having to talk about financial topics. The actions of government affect all things financial, and you can't be thorough in examining financial matters without considering government impact. And government is primarily composed of the two parties mentioned above.

I ask you to please don't take offense if your particular party is in the line of fire on any particular day. Believe me, there will be plenty of instances when the opposing party will be in my crosshairs.

There are some good things within each party. And there are plenty of bad things within each party as well. I often talk about how those bad things will harm our wealth. Neither party has a monopoly on bad things. I simply want to deal with the bad in both parties to enhance our wealth and for the betterment of the country.

I am not pro-Republican, nor am I pro-Democrat. I am pro-Constitution, pro-honesty, pro-personal freedom, pro-personal rights, pro-accountability, and many more.

My goal is not to offend anyone. My goal is to cut through the BS and deal with reality. So please don't take offense. These are real issues that must be dealt with, and discussed.

Now, yesterday Karl Denniger explained how the document that was released to the public was tampered with. A friend, who is a tech guy, also downloaded the document directly from the White House and confirmed that the document that was released to the public had been played with in Illustrator.

He offered a simple explanation: What if someone on the White House IT team wanted to practice his Illustrator skills and simply grabbed the nearest document to practice on, which happened to be the birth certificate. Then, when the decision was made to release it to the public, the person who did so grabbed the copy that the other IT employee had been playing with.

Maybe there is a genuine, un-altered birth certificate, and it was merely an accident that an altered copy was released to the public.

Plausible. Not likely, but conceivably it could have happened as my tech guy proposed. Maybe releasing a birth certificate that had clearly been tampered with was just an accident.

So I got to thinking and digging a little further. It is very important, especially in financial matters, to have an open mind and investigate without preconceived notions.

I don't know where the President was born, nor do I have an opinion. I merely have a lot of questions, and I know that if he WASN'T born in the U.S. it could be a trigger to greatly amplify our current economic crisis.

So let me point out a couple more things about the document that was released yesterday.

The document lists the President's father's birthplace as Kenya. But Kenya didn't officially become Kenya until December 12, 1963. The President was born in 1961. Would his birth certificate list a country that wasn't officially a country? You can see the date that Kenya became a country in the right hand column in this Wikipedia entry:

[link to en.wikipedia.org]

Before that date, the land was officially British East Africa Protectorate, or simply British East Africa:

[link to en.wikipedia.org]

It was also referred to as Kenya Colony, or the Protectorate of Kenya:

[link to en.wikipedia.org]

Was it referred to simply as "Kenya?" Yes, in this map of Africa from 1950:

[link to www.ngmapcollection.com]

It is conceivable that Kenya was put on the birth certificate instead of the official "British East Africa Protectorate" or even "British East Africa." I would think at a minimum, it would say "Colony of Kenya," since that is how it was described in 1961.

Simply putting Kenya is conceivable, but it does cause me to go: Hmmmmm.

Now here's another issue with the document that is far more of a dilemma. On the birth certificate released by the White House, the listed place of birth is "Kapi'olani Maternity & Gynecological Hospital". I find that INCREDIBLY odd.

If you want to know more about that hospital, here is a page on its website that describes its background:

[link to www.kapiolani.org]

Notice that Kapi'olani Maternity & Gynecological Hospital, which is the hospital in question that is listed on the President's birth certificate, didn't even exist in 1961. It didn't come into existence until 1978. Before then, there were two hospitals, Kauikeolani Children's Hospital and Kapi‘olani Maternity Home.

The hospital's OWN WEBSITE says that those two hospitals merged in 1978 to become the one single hospital that is listed on the document the White House released as being the official birth certificate.

How in the world, in 1961, could anyone have known that 17 years later, a merger between two hospitals was going to happen, and list the yet-to-be-formed hospital on the President's birth certificate?"

I don't have an answer to that, and I'm not sure that anyone does.

The possible economic implications are just as monumental as the Constitutional ones.

So far you people havent denied that the only interpretation of "natural born citizen" is by a foreign Swiss philosopher. You havent denied that "natural born" isnt defined in the Constitution. And you havent denied that a judge ruling in 1964 wasnt even referring to Obama's circumstance.

IOW you people are idiots who continually lie and spread lies for your own narrow purposes.

If you want to complain about Obama do it from intelligence and a truly INDEPENDENT perspective, not a partisan one that only feeds the machine.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1372213

Reread Minor vs Happersett. The US Supreme Court cited, and upheld, the Swiss philosopher de Vattel's definition in that case, word for word.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 802683


Cite it and I'll give it serious consideration. So far, I see blogs that cite words not quite saying what you mean to say, but then spin it to their agenda. I would love to see a US SC ruling citing a Swiss 18C anti revolutionary colonialist. lol
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1372213


OK, one last time, just for you, and I'll try to be real clear:

Here, once again, is de Vattel's definition of natural born:


[link to www.constitution.org]
<snip from Emerich De Vattel's work Law of Nations>
§ 212. Citizens and natives.

"The citizens are the members of the civil society; bound to this society by certain duties, and subject to its authority, they equally participate in its advantages. The natives, or natural-born citizens, are those born in the country, of parents who are citizens. As the society cannot exist and perpetuate itself otherwise than by the children of the citizens, those children naturally follow the condition of their fathers, and succeed to all their rights. The society is supposed to desire this, in consequence of what it owes to its own preservation; and it is presumed, as matter of course, that each citizen, on entering into society, reserves to his children the right of becoming members of it. The country of the fathers is therefore that of the children; and these become true citizens merely by their tacit consent. We shall soon see whether, on their coming to the years of discretion, they may renounce their right, and what they owe to the society in which they were born. I say, that, 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."

Now here is the US Supreme Court, citing the exact definition from de Vattel, practically word for word. I've even bolded the matching text from both de Vattel above, and from the SCOTUS opinion, below:

United States Supreme Court

* Minor v. Happersett, 88 U.S. 162 (1874)

"The Constitution does not, in words, say who shall be natural-born citizens. Resort must be had elsewhere to ascertain that. At common-law, with the nomenclature of which the framers of the Constitution were familiar, it was never doubted that all children born in a country of parents who were its citizens became themselves, upon their birth, citizens also. These were natives, or natural-born citizens, as distinguished from aliens or foreigners. Some authorities go further and include as citizens children born within the jurisdiction without reference to the citizenship of their parents. As to this class there have been doubts, but never as to the first. For the purposes of this case it is not necessary to solve these doubts. It is sufficient for everything we have now to consider that all children born of citizen parents within the jurisdiction are themselves citizens."

WHERE IS ARTICLE 2 SECTION 1???
IT SHOULD SAY:

"Article 2 - The Executive Branch
Section 1 - The President

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."
