IS SANDERS A “NATURAL BORN CITIZEN?”
by Sharon Rondeau
(Mar. 4, 2016) — On February 29, The Post & Email reported for the second time that it had requested a certified copy of Democrat presidential candidate Bernie Sanders’s long-form birth certificate and his father’s naturalization certificate, if it exists.
Our request emanated from Sanders’s two statements made at as many campaign stops in which he claimed that “Nobody has asked for my birth certificate” in a reference to the calls in 2011 for Barack Hussein Obama to release his “long-form” birth certificate, the most public among them having come from Donald Trump.
On April 27 of that year, the White House released what it said was Obama’s detailed birth certificate from Hawaii, but it was quickly denounced as a forgery by experienced professionals.
On March 1, 2012, the Maricopa County Cold Case Posse declared the image a “computer-generated forgery” after approximately six months of probing, including traveling to Hawaii in an attempt to find original documents.
The White House has not addressed the report of forgery relative to the birth certificate or Obama’s Selective Service registration form, which the posse also declared fraudulent on March 1, 2012.
At a second press conference, posse lead investigator Mike Zullo and Maricopa County Sheriff Joseph M. Arpaio provided greater detail on how they reached their conclusions in regard to Obama’s only publicly-available documents.
The Post & Email requested Sanders’s father’s naturalization form to determine if or when he became a U.S. citizen resulting from Sanders’s comparison of his father, who reportedly emigrated from Poland, to Obama’s father, who was in the U.S. on a student visa and never became a citizen.
While speaking about his father as an “immigrant,” Sanders did not say whether or not he ever became a U.S. citizen.
Doubts about Obama’s constitutional eligibility to serve as president in accordance with Article II, Section 1, clause 5 of the U.S. Constitution were left unanswered and further fueled by the declaration of the forgery of his documents in 2012 which Congress and the media have failed to investigate independent of the Cold Case Posse’s criminal probe. The specific constitutional requirement is that the president and commander-in-chief must be a “natural born Citizen.”
One interpretation of “natural born Citizen” is “born in the country to citizen parents.”
Our first letter to Sanders was sent by normal delivery. After receiving no response, we sent the second letter by certified mail, return receipt requested.
The receipt was returned to us on Friday signed by Robert Miller.
