PAST SUPREME COURT DECISIONS ON THE DEFINITION OF “NATURAL BORN CITIZEN”

by Roy Trueman Jr.

"The Law of Nations" was written in 1758 by Emerich de Vattel, a Swiss philosopher known to the Founding Fathers

(Sept. 10, 2010) — Article II of the Constitution requires that the President of the United States be a “natural born Citizen.” There is no doubt of the definition of a “natural born Citizen” in the Law.  A “natural born Citizen” must be born to two U.S. Citizen parents. Both mother and father must be U.S. Citizens at the time of birth. There have never been any changes in Law, Treaty or legal actions that have ever changed this requirement or definition. That is the definition as recognized by numerous U.S. Supreme Court and lower court decisions (see references below).

Barack Obama’s father was never a U.S. Citizen nor did he ever attempt to become a U.S. Citizen. This fact alone clearly proves that Barack Obama cannot be a “natural born Citizen” as required by Article II of the Constitution to hold the Office of President of the United States.

The U.S. Constitution is the most sacred Law of Our Republic and Country. It is the requirement that every employee of the Federal Government take an Oath of Office to Uphold and Protect the Constitution (see references below).

Barack Obama has committed Fraud in presenting himself as eligible to run for the Office of President and violated the Law of the Constitution. Barack Obama has committed Treason in wrongfully and fraudulently accepting and acting as President of the United States. Barack Obama has committed Voter Fraud in his actions to be placed illegally on the ballot and running for the office of President of the United States.

As Chair, Democratic National Convention, Nancy Pelosi and as Secretary, Democratic National Convention, Alice Travis Germond on the Official Certification of Nomination of the Democratic National Committee, signed and submitted to Hawaii certification that Barack Obama was legally qualified to serve as President of the United States under the provisions of the United States Constitution, and have knowingly committed Fraud and Voter Fraud by submitting a false statement resulting in Barack Obama being placed illegally on the ballot for President of the United States.

Evidence of foreknowledge of Barack Obama being ineligible under the Constitution of the United States

The wording of the Official Certification of Nomination by the Democratic National Committee was changed, replacing the words “are legally qualified to serve under the provisions of the United States Constitution” with the word “respectively” on all copies submitted to the other 49 States of the Nation (see attached copy). In doing so, they have committed 49 additional counts of Voter Fraud by failing to certify Barack Obama as legally qualified to serve under the provisions of the United States Constitution as required by law. This resulted in an ineligible and illegal candidate being placed on the Ballots of those 49 States.

Both Nancy Pelosi and Alice Travis Germond are also guilty of Treason for submitting Barack Obama as candidate for the President of the United States with full knowledge of his ineligibility effectively working to illegally take over control of the United States Presidency using illegal means.

Supreme Court and lower court decisions defining “Natural Born Citizen” as requiring Both Parents are U.S. Citizens:

Justice Ginsberg is on record as proclaiming that a “Natural Born Citizen” is a birth of a child with TWO U.S. Citizen parents.

Emerich de Vattel – The Law of Nations or the Principles of Natural Law (1758) also defines a “Natural Born Citizen” as a Child with both parents as Citizens and was the language of the time of the writing of the Constitution and was a known reference used by the Founders who wrote the Constitution.

  1. Article 2- Section 4 of the constitution. The President Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.

    Treason ; President Obama his staff and many in lock step with Obama are Marxists Fascists trying to over through the United States Government. Why is Obama not being charged with Treason? How is it the CIA or FBI did not pick up on this fact before Obama became president? It is more important than ever we get out and vote these people out of office. Has the FBI and CIA been rendered toothless by laws by congress?
    Bribery; The Louisiana purchase. Bribery of all the states with tax payers money to get them to pass his bills without reading them.
    Crimes and Misdemeanors; During his campaign Obama boasted that he worked as a community organizer for ACORN, a criminal organization. He has further maintained that he is no stranger to Unions and supports SEIU and Andy Stern. The Unions are owned by the Mafia. (organized crime).

  2. What to do:

    The Supreme Court won’t act because the Solicitor General either forwards or denies cases that are to be reviewed by the Court. The most recent person in that position was none other than Elena Kagan, now a Court Justice herself!

    The Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff is an Obama appointee. The other Chiefs are too weak to effect an arrest of the POTUS for the afore stated “crimes”.

    Civil Uprising. Who would lead it, Mr. Trueman?

    November elections. This is how to change the government. Unfortunately, too many citizens in this country are so apathetic and complacent with the status quo they will do nothing more than gripe unless they wake up to what is going on today. God help us they do awaken. This may be the last good opportunity to stop the continued abuse and usurpation of the Constitution.

    1. We need to unite and work to defeat this and the best way I know it to join the Patriots Union and the Tea Party and get out on the streets and get others involved.

      You are right when you say “Unfortunately, too many citizens in this country are so apathetic and complacent with the status quo they will do nothing more than gripe ” so lets get out there and wake them up to the truth and get them involved.

      If it takes a few million of us to march on Washington and phyiscally remove the Treasonous elected officials from office and overwhelm the false Government, so be it!

      We have just about exhausted our peaceful means of dealing with this corruption and takeover of our Government. Get involved now and make your voice heard and maybe we can still resolve this peacefully.

  3. MYTH #1: Chester Arthur’s British birth was known and accepted by the American people. NOT TRUE
    This article was written in Summer 1884, while Chester Arthur was still President. Since The American Law Review was such an esteemed legal publication, old Chester must have been somewhat intimidated by the report of Attorney Collins. This is because the article makes perfectly clear that to be a natural born citizen one must have been born to a US citizen father.
    Chester’s father William was not naturalized until 1843, 14 years after Chester was born. This meant that Chester Arthur was a British subject at birth and was therefore not eligible to be President. This has been said since December 2008.
    It has been argued that Chester Arthur’s occupation of the White House set a legal precedent for Obama since both Chester and Barack were born of British fathers. But the public – at the time Chester was running for VP and later when he became POTUS – never knew that Chester Arthur was a British subject since he successfully lied to the public about his parental heritage.
    The law review article goes into great detail concerning the issue of who exactly rises to the level of natural born citizen. It discusses law cases and legal precedent in its analysis, but it does not even mention the current President – Chester Arthur – even though Attorney Collins steadfastly denies that a person born on US soil to an alien father could be a natural born citizen.
    If Attorney Collins – esteemed lawyer, Secretary of the Bar Association and nationally known legal journalist – had thought his current President at the time this article was published – Chester Arthur – was a British subject at birth, then the article would have required a discussion of that point.
    But the article does not mention President Chester Arthur because Chester Arthur managed – through blatant deceit – to cover that issue up. He successfully concealed his British birth from the American people. This law review article is proof of that conclusion. Eventually Chester Arthur was found out.

    1. There is no such thing as setting a Legal Precedent for violating the Constitution. It matters not what someone got away with in history. What matters is right now and there is no doubt whatsoever that Obama is not eligible to be President of the U.S. and that he is a fraud and treasonous.

      The Lame Stream Media has throw out the Birth Certificate thing as a game to keep people chasing their tails and not getting anywhere.

      We the People need to take action, we need to get out and vote out all current members of Congress and Senate because they are all guilty of violating their Oath of Office. The Department of Justice is completely corrupted along with the FBI. They refuse to even respond to complaints much less act on them.

      The vast majority of Americans either do not care because they are being paid with Tax Payer money to do nothing but vote for those who will give them more or they are totally uninformed because they rely on the Lame Street Media for their information and all they hear is Propaganda.

      Most people have no idea they are being lied to and told what to think, control the Media and control the People. The truth needs to be told and Obama needs to be moved from the White House to the Big House. Every Bill, Legislation Executive Order, Treaty, Action and all of his under handed tricks needs to be made Null and Void.

      The FBI has been informed of over 31 High Crimes and Treasonous acts that Obama is Guilty of and has done nothing. There is no Legal Federal Government in place at this time. We now live in a Dictatorship where the Laws do not apply to Obama or anyone he selects.

      Do something now and fight for your Country,Rights, Constitution, Liberties and Freedom or they will be lost forever.

      1. What exactly is the “something” we should do? What are your proposed solutions? Letters have been written to state representatives, emails sent, petitions signed, donations made, DC marches and rallies ad nauseum.

        What are the solutions you and Kate propose? What is it we the people can do now?
        I’m open for suggestions.

  4. How long will it take before it dawns on you people that there is a coup and our government has been taken over from within? What does it take to get your full attention? The courts and politicians all know it and those who aren’t part of it are being blackmailed or threatened. At any rate they are all guilty of treason and the entire lot needs to be prosecuted. The Supreme Court Jesters are no better than the rest and the Constitution and Bill of Rights are being trashed by them on a daily basis.

    Looking at all the evidence against this administration over the past several months it is apparent Barry is not the LEGAL president but not one damn thing has been done, not even by our esteemed State Attorney Generals or the court system. Hello and wake up. Keep writing these witty informative articles and revealing your proof. The rest of you keep reading them, sending them along to your friends and commenting what a great patriot this writer is. You are wasting your time. When martial law is enforced and you become an instant enemy of Homeland Security you will see you have been doing just what ‘they’ wanted you to do. Talk, talk, talk and more talk while you sit back and wait for someone else to actually do something. This is a nation of selfish, self-centered cowards and I pity your children and their children. Maybe we can all print out these magnificent writings and take them with us when they cart us away to the Halliburton/FEMA camps so we will have some great things to read before we die. The dear citizens of this nation have been ‘economy’ worshipers for as long as I can remember and didn’t give a damn what kind of man was in office or what he did as long as their personal la la world wasn’t affected in a negative manner. Most people always become like those they support, so here you are! Go take a good look in the nearest mirror Mr. and Mrs. Materialism. You have gotten what you have asked for. But hey, relax as I am sure day by day there will be more little tidbits of revealing proofs yet to come and drool over. This is almost as educational as a Reality program.

    Mrs. Rondeau replies: Madam, it is my opinion that publishing the news which the mainstream media will not put out is part of the solution. If I had wanted to sit back and do nothing, I certainly could have. Running a newssite such as this is not something one does out of “materialism,” of that you can be assured.

    1. So what do you think the answers are, Kate, besides “shoot the messenger”? Please enlighten us with your words of wisdom.
      What are the next steps you think we the people should follow? Storm the White House and be shot dead by our own military? Or lock and load at home? What?

    2. Absolutely Right Mrs Roudeau – The real heart of this corruption is the Main Stream Media and the best answer is to get the word out through honest and patriotic newssites such as this one. Go to the top of your browser and copy the address above and send it out to everyone in your address book.

      Put Bumber Stickers on you cars, fly the American Flag and welcome the signs of good patriotic candidates in your yard.

      Most of all get out and VOTE !!

  5. True article by Roy Trueman, but as Robert Laity points out, native birth (jus solis) is a prerequisite to natural born status. So ascertaining Obama’s birthplace is also of very great importance, which takes us back to the Kenyan birth certificate dealt with in The P & E’s recent interview with Lucas Smith.

    In commenting on the Lucas Smith interview, David F. LaRocque summed up the “by soil/by blood” requirements thus in his comment of Sept. 7 at 12:54 p.m.:

    “This is where the purported Kenyan birth certificate in the possession of Lucas Smith assumes critical importance. If this document is valid, then Obama is clearly and unequivocally ineligible to serve in the office of president, and he must be removed. On the other hand, if it can be proven that he was actually born in Hawaii as he claims, then the parental citizenship issue must be resolved. This is why it is so important to get the matter of the legally-admissible documentation of Obama’s birth location resolved promptly.”

    True, Obama’s birthplace should not be needed to oust him, but for two years Obama’s foreign father and dual citizenship (at best) have not been enough to get the job done. Without in any way abandoning Trueman’s fine arguments above, we obviously need to put greater emphasis on forcing Congress to address “jus solis.” Congress must evaluate the Kenyan BC.

  6. Why do you think it is ; that the Founders/Framers chose, deliberately, NOT to use such restrictive terminology(ie “2 parents+ soil) in their crafting of the considered Article’s elg clause?
    This should be a rhetorical question, by-the-way
    Would you y’all like a hint or two?

  7. The United States Supreme Court needs to decide this case & It can only legally go one way , Guilty , based purely on all evidence and according to the U.S. Constitution !!

    1. The U.S. Supreme Court has already decided this case numerous times and they have ruled that both parents must be U.S. Citizens to be a “Natural Born Citizen”. Congress has confirmed it also in 2008.

      The DOJ has been corrupted, the Congress has been corrupted, the Senate has been corrupted, the FBI has ben corrupted, the Military has been corrupted.

      They all know the truth and they all know Obama is illegal. It now falls to We the People to take action and we are running out of peaceful solutions. Pass this website to everyone you know. Join the Patriots Union http://www.patriotsunion.org/

      The time is up, we need to act now and wake up America while we still have any America left.

  8. It is apparent that the American chapter of the “establishment/global elite/entrenched class” have assumed that they can get away with ignoring the Constitution. What they (sic) don’t realize is that regardless of what “power” they wield, there is a Power that supersedes the “power” they’ve been given stewardship over by that same superseding Power. The elite have made the same mistakes that their ilk have made over the millennia (e.g., King Belshazzar to name one.) As most of you have experienced, I have stood in disbelief and shock at the transgressions against the Constitution by those who have sworn a “sacred” oath to defend it. Nothing will change until Providence achieves His will and His will be done. I know that this fraud (obama, et. al) will be uncovered and dealt with in strict accordance to the Constitution. I like to think of this as Constitutional vengeance. God gave us the Constitution and He said “Vengeance is His” not ours.

  9. It is obvious that the majority have stood in the way of justice and that majority includes both political classes. I guess that’s what tyrannical government is, a joining of hands to squash any law or rule it sees fit. Where it will stop is limited only by the consciences or lack thereof among those of the ruling class. In any case, it isn’t the form of government we demanded. That makes it illegal, all of it.

  10. The requirement to be President includes that he/she have parents BOTH of whom were American citizens at the time of his/her birth*(Jus Sanguinis)

    and

    Birth in the American Mainland. No tint of dual jurisdiction or allegiance.(Jus Soli)

    Both Jus Sanquinis and Jus Soli must be met. The President and anyone else in succession must meet these requirements in order to attain to the office.

    To be Natural Born one must take no other legal action,such as applying for naturalization or meeting residency requirement that one of the parents of a child born outside the US must have resided in the US at least one year prior to the birth of the child.

  11. This info on Pelosi and the DNC has been out there for awhile now, so why hasn’t anyone bothered to file a lawsuit against the DNC and Pelosi yet? It seems that it would have been easier to go after them than after Obama. If Pelosi and DNC were to be found guilty of fraud then Obama and the rest would fall like dominos. Just a thought!
    ———————
    Mrs. Rondeau replies: I am sure that Nancy Pelosi as well as Dick Cheney is named in the Kerchner lawsuit. Congress is named as well. I am not sure about the DNC.

  12. Did you know that the “Law of Nations” was not actually written by Vattell but translated from Latin into French from the work of Christian Wolfe adding his own thoughts?

    The Law of Nations was a Roman Empire manifestation.

  13. Justice Ginsberg may or may not have said that but if so, I doubt it’s on the record. What she DID say is that her grandson born in France was in her view a natural born citizen (and she wanted him to be so). It is in the SCOTUS proceedings as part of the official proceedings in at least one case.

    That alone should force her recusal and the two Obama-appointed justices have such gross conflicts of intertests they certainly should not be allowed to read – let alone be involved in – any eligibility proceedings which will be coming up shortly in SCOTUS.

    1. That “reasoning” is what is missing today.

      I can understand why the progressives want Obama to sign into law. I understand why corporate leaders readily accept the advancement of a wealthy ruling class. I understand the change but why don’t any of these people look beyond the process to the end result which has played out before in a horrible end for the masses? Can people be that greedy, gullible or easily duped that they fail to recognize what always fails them? Apparently so or this game of growing power and control over people by any means would not repeat over and over through millenia.

  14. Though todays Supreme Court declines to address Obama eligibility, it is obvious to anyone who has the ability to read a dictionary to determine the meaning of the term “natural born citizen”.

    Obama supporters make the fraudulent assumption that the word “native” can be substituted for the word “natural” in the Constitution’s natural born citizenship requirement of Article II, Section 1, clause 5. They say native-born to perpetuate the fraud that Obama is.

    The two words native and natural have entirely different meanings and are not interchangeable. The definition of “native” is always “born in a particular place or region”. So they change the wording of the Constitution in all the mainstream media, they put on the web what appears to be a fake birth certificate and say Obama is a native-born. In fact , the definition of “native” though not even close in meaning to “natural” is almost synonymous to the word “citizen”.

    The word “citizen” is defined as “a native or naturalized member of a state or other political community”. Thus if a person were to substitute the word “native” somewhere in clause 5, it would not be where the word natural appears but where the word citizen appears. Clause 5 would then be written “natural born native”.

    However, the word “natural” means “in accordance with nature, the fundamental characteristics that define the identity of something”. For example, the definition of a natural child is one that is related by blood compared to one who is adopted. Even though they may be adopted on the day of their birth, we still know that they are not a natural child. The characteristics of the natural parents are always there.

    Thus the natural identity for a person is defined by their parents such that it is passed through a process of nature. Though societies may try to deny the nature of the parent – child process, it is much like trying to live without breathing, it cannot be done.

    But as the Constitution states the President must be a natural born citizen. Just like a natural child has both parents that are biologically connected by blood, a natural born citizen has both parents that are connected not only by blood but also via citizenship to the United States at the time of his/her birth. The parents are both citizens and natural parents of the child.

    In order to confuse everyone in the United States and to their fullest destroy the Constitution, the frauds and servants of our enemies substitute the word “native” for “natural”.

    Natural born is not native born. Get the Kenyan usurper fraud out.

    The above definitions were obtained from the following sources:
    wordnetweb.princeton.edu/perl/webwn
    online Macmillan Dictionary
    Reader’s Digest Great Encyclopedic Dictionary (1973)
    contains the Funk & Wagnalls Standard College Dictionary

    1. You can add the CFR’s to your list in regards to the usage and understanding of ‘natural’ as it relates to the bio-logical parents for claims of benefits under the various Veterans, social security, medicare, rail-road pensions etc, programs for eligibility standards for dependents.

  15. I am a notary myself. Alice Germond’s duty is only to certify that the document signed was actually the person who signed it and she should have required identification to do so. She should also have kept a log of the documents she verified. If she did not, she is in violation. She could be a very good witness as to whether or not she signed two different documents, which we know she did. Reasonable suspicion is also a duty of a notary. She should have questioned signing two different documents though. We are supose to excerise a certain due diligence in verifying signatures on documents. Point is, she should be questioned as she would have knowledge as to why she had to verify signatures on two documents that were virtually the same?

    1. If she was not even a legal notary, i.e. commsission expired etc. the document is invalid! That could mean Pelosi never actually verified Obama’s legitimacy. Also, A notary can have no bad records. If you are a felon, you cannot be a notary. Someone should look into the background of Germond to see if she has a record! that would invalidate everything if she does.

      1. I think jbjd verified that Germond was a NP at that time and what recordkeeping was required of NPs by state in 2008.

        PS: I was a NP here in Texas many, many years ago.
