See No, Hear No, Speak No Obama Ineligibility

The view of Beckwith at The Obama File
The Biggest Political Cover-Up In American History

The three enablers of Obama's usurpation of the Office of the President of the United States in violation of Article II, Section 1, Clause 5 of the U.S. Constitution.

The Congress will not look at or investigate the merits of the charges. The Courts will not hear in a trial [on] the merits of the charges. And the Main Stream Media will not talk about the merits of the charges and discuss the Constitutional issues involved with the American people. Their ignoring the questions and concerns of the People in this matter endangers our liberty by demonstrating that those in power, once in power feel they do not have to listen to the People.

Obama, the Putative U. S. President, was born a Kenyan citizen and British subject governed by the British Nationality Act of 1948 -- a fact he admits to at the bottom of this page. Obama is still a British Protected Person and/or a British subject to this day.

How can a person who was born a British subject be considered a "natural born" citizen of the USA?

Simple answer -- he can't. At the top of this page, in the big blue box, Obama's own campaign identifies him as a "native [born]" citizen. They know. It's been there all the time.

This situation was created when both major political parties ran ineligible candidates, who were not "natural born" citizens. Obama was ineligible because his father was a foreigner (Jus sanguinis), and McCain was ineligible because he was born in a foreign country (Jus soli). The U.S. Constitution, applicable case law and historical and legal precedent have been ignored for political expediency.

We are now witnessing the biggest political cover-up in American history.

Simple answer, dual citizenship has no effect on Natural Born status.

Why should we let a foreign law affect the eligibility of our children? And, of course, we don't.

So long as someone is Natural Born, for which the original definition was simply "born in the country," neither a foreign law nor the citizenship of the parents has any effect.

smrstrauss, educate yourself:

smrstrauss, also, the very reason for this "nbC" clause in the Constitution, is to prohibit competing foreign allegiances from influencing our Commander in Chief. Refer to John Jay's letter to George Washington.

I have read it. Also recall that John Jay was a lawyer and would become chief justice. When he wrote "Natural Born," he was most likely referring to the use of Natural Born that he was most familiar with, in the common law.

Re: "very reason for this "nbC" clause in the Constitution, is to prohibit competing foreign allegiances."

To be sure, but this is accomplished by baring foreigners from being president and barring naturalized citizens from being president. It does not say that it bars the US-born children of foreigners from being president.

smrstrauss, Beckwith just pointed out what common law was, per the term "natural born Citizen."

There are numerous corroborations. There is no effective nullification of them.

Recognition of "dual citizenship" did not exist. Dual allegiances were logically, exactly what was being prevented by the nbC clause. They wanted no more Benedict Arnolds (nor, "Citizen of the World," Barack Obamas)

Re: "They wanted no more Benedict Arnolds."

To be sure. But Benedict Arnold not only was Natural Born himself (under any definition), but he actually came from three generations who had been born in the USA.

The common law clearly shows that Natural Born simply meant "born in the country." For example, Blackstone said:

The children of aliens, born here in England, are, generally speaking, natural-born subjects and entitled to all the privileges of such. In which the constitution of France differs from ours; for there, by their jus albinatus, if a child be born of foreign parents, it is alien.”

(And the minor exceptions referred to in “generally speaking” refers to the children of foreign diplomats.)

Here is a use of the term written shortly after the Constitution was adopted: "A very respectable political writer makes the following pertinent remarks upon this subject. “Prior to the adoption of the constitution, the people inhabiting the different states might be divided into two classes: natural born citizens, or those born within the state, and aliens, or such as were born out of it.""

In other words, before the Constitution there were only two kinds of people in the early states. There were no naturalization laws, so the only two kinds of people (not counting slaves and Indians) were those who were born in the state and aliens, who were born outside of the state.

And what were the words used for "born in the state?" Natural Born.

1. Blackstone was commenting on (expansionist) British law, not international law, which is largely based upon natural law.

2.a. What is the citation for the "term written shortly after the Constitution was adopted," written by a "very respectable political writer?"

2.b. Vattel's treatise on international law was used in order to settle confederate (i.e., national) matters, before the present Constitution. (That is not because it was authoritative on its own accord, but because it was an accurate report of international law.)

2.c. There is hardly any more natural component in natural law, than the transfer of identity from father to son. And once again, there was no provision for "dual citizenship."

Some say that "smrstrauss" the frequent troller of the internet spewing misinformation about natural born citizenship is a devoted Obot of the higher order. One of those DC insider types. See this wiki page as to who he could be, some say. Is this you "smrstrauss"?
