“FOR USURPING PRESIDENCY DURING TIME OF WAR”
by Sharon Rondeau
(Jan. 28, 2017) — On Saturday, a petition was launched at whitehouse.gov calling for the prosecution of Barack Hussein Obama for allegedly “usurping [the] presidency during time of war by virtue of his not being an A2 Natural Born Citizen,” a reference to the citizenship requirement in Article II, Section 1, clause 5 of the U.S. Constitution for the president and commander-in-chief of the United States.
The petition was posted by Robert Laity, a disabled Navy veteran and plaintiff in an active lawsuit against the New York State Board of Elections alleging that three presidential candidates in last year’s election were not qualified to seek the office.
Laity has been very active in the “eligibility” movement since Obama’s 2008 election, when Congress and members of the Electoral College refused to investigate whether or not Obama met the constitutional qualifications to serve as president given that multiple reports from mainstream sources had stated that he was born in Kenya or Indonesia.
In an email on Saturday morning announcing the petition, Laity wrote:
Dear family and friends,

We the People allows anyone to create and sign petitions asking the White House to take action on a range of issues. If a petition gets enough support, the White House will issue an official response.

Prosecute Barack Obama for usurping Presidency during time of war by virtue of his not being an A2 Natural Born Citizen
The Constitution of the United States requires that a President be a “Natural Born Citizen”.According to the definition found in the Law of Nations, an NBC is “one born in the country to parents who are both citizens”. In Minor v Happersett, the Supreme Court affirmed that definition saying that an NBC was one born in the USA to Parents who are both US citizens themselves. Obama was ineligible to be President as was Chester Arthur before him. In the 2016 election, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio and Bobby Jindal were all ineligible based on these facts. They also attempted to usurp the Presidency by fraud. In comparison, our current President, Trump, IS an NBC. HE was born in NY City to Parents who were both US citizens themselves. Google” “There is no ‘President’ Obama” by me.
While the Framers of the Constitution did not precisely defined the term “natural born Citizen” and controversy continues as to Obama’s eligibility, most Americans understand that the minimum requirement is that a person must have been born in the United States. When delving deeper into historical texts and entries in the Congressional Record, however, one finds references to the citizenship of a person’s parents as well as his birthplace in respect to “natural born” status.
In 1916, Democrat attorney and future ambassador to Italy under President Woodrow Wilson wrote an essay published in the Chicago Legal News questioning the eligibility of Wilson’s Republican challenger, Charles Evans Hughes, who was born in New York City to parents who were British citizens.
In his essay, Long made the case that Hughes was not constitutionally eligible because he was born to a non-US-citizen father while acknowledging that he believed Hughes to be “a citizen.”
Obama claims a birth in Hawaii to a non-U.S.-citizen father and U.S.-citizen mother. In 1934, U.S. law was changed to reflect that a mother could pass on citizenship to her child irrespective of the father’s citizenship, which many have cited as Obama’s justification for claiming presidential eligibility. However, questions remain as to whether or not Obama’s presumed citizenship qualifies as “natural born” in keeping with the Framers’ intent.
Some constitutional scholars believe that the term “natural born Citizen” means that no act of law passed by Congress is necessary for the person’s allegiance to be recognized as solely American. It takes two generations of U.S. citizens, some researchers say, to produce a “natural born Citizen.”
Like many others, Laity believes that nothing less than a birth on U.S. soil to U.S.-citizen parents qualifies an individual as a “natural born Citizen.”
Laity’s current New York State lawsuit not only alleges that former Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, Sen. Marco Rubio, and Sen. Ted Cruz are ineligible to seek the presidency, but also requests relief from the New York State Board of Elections for having expressed the presidential citizenship requirement as “born a citizen” rather than the actual term used in Article II, Section 1, clause 5.
In a 2010 congressional hearing in which U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Clarence Thomas was testifying, when the question as to whether or not Rep. José Serrano, born in Puerto Rico, could seek the presidency, Thomas nervously laughed and responded, “We’re evading that one.”
A 1991 biography issued by Obama’s then-literary agent, Dystel & Goderich, stated that Obama was “born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia and Hawaii.” Without explanation, the biography was changed in April 2007 to say that Obama was born in Hawaii. When the discovery of the promotional pamphlet was made in May 2012 by Breitbart, Miriam Goderich was quick to say that the original version of Obama’s biography was published as a result of her own “fact checking error.”
Obama’s eligibility is further questioned by his 2011 production of a “long-form” birth certificate image and a paper document purported to be his Selective Service registration form which were later deemed forgeries by a five-year criminal investigation.
Last month in a final press conference, investigators revealed that two well-respected forensics analysis experts agreed that nine points of forgery lifted from another Hawaii birth certificate belied the purported authenticity of the birth certificate image posted at whitehouse.gov on April 27, 2011.
In the last days of Obama’s occupation of the White House, then-Press Secretary Josh Earnest defended the long-form birth certificate image by telling reporters that by virtue of its release, which he termed a “piece of paper,” “the charges against the president — that were lobbed against the president — were false.”
Earnest did not acknowledge the results of the criminal investigation carried out by the Maricopa County, AZ Cold Case Posse under the auspices of the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office. then led by Sheriff Joseph Arpaio, nor the final presser held on December 15.
Ironically, it was President Donald Trump who in the early months of 2011 called upon the White House to release Obama’s detailed birth record amidst doubts that a “short-form” Certification of Life Birth released in June 2008 purportedly belonging to Obama was authentic. After several months of pressure, the White House appeared to respond to Trump by publishing the long-form image on April 27.
After the image was made public, Obama gave an unannounced press conference in which he stated that it provided “additional information about the site of my birth” in a reference to his claimed birth at Kapiolani Women & Children’s Medical Center in Honolulu, HI on August 4, 1961.
However, during the course of the criminal investigation into the long-form image, Zullo asserted that investigators had found no evidence that Obama was ever in the state of Hawaii before the age of five.
In his closing remarks during last month’s press conference, Arpaio pledged to turn over all of the evidence gathered, not all of which was made public, to Congress and “federal authorities.”
It has previously been suggested that once the perpetrators of the forgeries are identified, if they have not been already, there could be criminal charges filed.
As The Post & Email reported throughout this past week, whitehouse.gov petitions are not accurately displaying the number of signatures they have received since the change in administrations on January 20 at noon. We will be providing insight into how this might have happened as discovered by Marco Ciavolino, who is Trustee of the Terry Lakin Action Fund and well-versed in website technology and with whom we spoke on Friday.
A petition asking the administration to grant a pardon to Lakin and reinstate him in the Army following his questioning of Obama’s eligibility in 2010 is here.
Whitehouse.gov petitions must register 150 signers before they are placed on the public area of the website.
Update: Laity is founder of the Society for the Preservation of our American Republic which will be celebrating its thirtieth anniversary on September 17, 2017.
