BIRTHERS, HISTORIANS AND OBOTS’ DEFINITIONS OF “NATURAL BORN CITIZEN”
by JB Williams, ©2011
(Apr. 13, 2011) — Despite monumental efforts to keep Obama’s entire past completely under wraps, questions persist over who and what Barack Hussein Obama really is and how a half-term senate political neophyte with a totally blank resume managed to defeat the Clinton machine to become the most secretive president in U.S. history. Is it a side show, or the main event?
Because Obama has refused to release his official vault birth certificate, college, passport records or family history including all medical records, and because he and those covering for him insist that there is ‘nothing to see here’ – many Americans are increasingly interested in how Obama was able to happen to America.
His many overt anti-American and anti-constitution policies have driven speculation that not only is he not a natural born citizen eligible for the office he holds, he may not even be American at all.
Business mogul Donald Trump appears ready to run for office on the search for a real Obama birther certificate. Not a COLB, but a real authentic birth certificate that looks just like every other American birth certificate.
The press is largely responsible for the ongoing circus, as they have been completely uninterested in the matter for almost three years now. Never before in history has the press taken so little sincere journalistic interest in what could be the greatest scam ever perpetrated on American voters.
They still claim that Obama’s COLB (Certification of Live Birth) is an actual birth certificate, even though we all know that it isn’t. We have seen real Hawaii birth certificates from people born in Hawaii on the same day Obama claims to have been born, even from the same hospital.
But is the missing birth certificate the real issue?
We all agree that the constitution requires one to be a natural born citizen of the United States to be 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;” – But there is more than one definition of natural born citizen being proposed.
- The Obot definition is simply citizen – native, natural, naturalized, hatchet, all being one in the same, using 14th Amendment naturalization arguments which are actually unrelated to the subject.
- The birther definition is one line borrowed from Vattel’s book on the Law of Nations – “The natives, or natural-born citizens, are those born in the country, of parents who are citizens.” – But this definition ignores everything else Vattel said on the matter.
- The historians definition also comes from Vattel’s Law of Nations, but relies on the entire body of work; 1) 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; 2) The country of the fathers is therefore that of the children; 3) 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.
According to the Obot definition, all American citizens are natural born citizens eligible for office, including 14th Amendment citizens, which means, Article II – Section I – Clause V of the constitution means nothing at all.
According to birthers searching for an authentic Hawaiian birth certificate, confirming Obama’s birthplace, or native born status, will establish whether or not Obama is eligible for the office he holds.
Obama is happy with both of these definitions. The Obot definition of “citizen” sets the bar so low that Obama is confident he can meet that test, as could any anchor baby or 14th Amendment citizen.
Once birthers help Obots establish that native and natural born are the same thing, Obama will likely find his missing birth certificate, even if the ink is not yet dry.
His opposition will claim that the runny ink on the wrong paper proves it is a forgery, but Obama’s defense team, known as the U.S. Justice Department, will argue that it is authentic. Leftist self-made Academics at FactCheck and Snopes will confirm and the press will say, “See, we told ya so!”
The Supreme Court that has dodged the question for three years will continue to dodge the question. Obama’s name will appear on the 2012 presidential ballot in all 50 states and anyone opposed will be labeled a racist.
But the historian’s definition is not only factually correct – it leaves Obama no escape route and we don’t even need to find the missing birth certificate.
1) those children naturally follow the condition of their fathers;
2) The country of the fathers is therefore that of the children;
3) it is necessary that a person be born of a father who is a citizen;
The true historical meaning of the term natural born citizen is based in natural law, not man-made law.
The Law of Nations is the foundation, but not just the line birthers choose to hang their hat on, but the balance of the entire work, which clearly identifies the bloodline of the natural birth father as the source from which all rights succeed, specifically, natural born citizenship.
We do not need a Hawaiian birth certificate because Obama has repeatedly identified his natural birth father as Barack Hussein Obama I of Kenya, who was at no time in his life a citizen of the United States. Therefore, Barack Hussein Obama I could not have passed U.S. natural born citizenship to his son, Barack Hussein Obama II.
As a constitutional law student, certainly, Barack Hussein Obama knows this, and that is why he is thrilled that people continue the silly search for a missing Hawaiian birth certificate, which would only affirm his native born status and also identify Barack Hussein Obama I as his natural birth father.
Because natural rights are transferred to offspring via the bloodline of the father, Barack Hussein Obama II cannot be a natural born citizen of the United States, no matter where he might have been born.
Why are birthers still in search of a birth certificate? What do they think they can gain from finding that missing document?
If the goal is to uphold the constitution and preserve the future of the constitutional republic, then they need only remove Obama from office, along with all who participated in the grandest scam ever perpetrated upon American voters.
Members of Congress and the Supreme Court either know this truth, or they should. They are either looking the other way for political gain, or they are horrifically unqualified for the jobs they currently hold. Either way, they are complicit…
The ongoing search for a birth certificate is a dangerous distraction from the search for truth. The future of freedom and liberty hang in the balance. The people must get this one right, or they will get nothing else right.
This matter is no side show – it is the main event!
