(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,

I wanted to let you know about a new petition I created on We the People, a new feature on WhiteHouse.gov, and ask for your support. Will you add your name to mine? If this petition gets 99,999 signatures by February 27, 2017, the White House will review it and respond!

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.

  1. PEOPLE, PEOPLE ……..Please learn how to read.

    The only thing that the Minor decision does is to acknowledge that people born to two US citizens on US soil are NBCs.

    The Minor decision does not help the Birther issue at all because no one is saying that people born to two US Citizens on US soil are not NBCs.

    What the Obots are saying is that being born on US Soil to two US Citizens is not the only way a person can be a NBC and that because Obama’s mother was a US Citizen that makes Obama a NBC.

    As far as whether a person must be born to two US Citizens to be a NBC is concerned, all the Minor court says is that because that question had nothing to do with the case they were deciding, they would not address the issue of whether citizen parents are required for NBC status.

    As you can see, on the subject of whether the citizenship of parents makes a difference as to whether a person is a NBC, the Minor Court states —–

    “Some authorities go further and include as citizens children born within the jurisdiction without reference to the citizenship of their parents. As to this class there have been doubts, but never as to the first. For the purposes of this case, it is not necessary to solve these doubts.”

    SEE Minor v. Happersett 88 U.S. 162 (1874)

  2. Everyone who wishes to acknowledge the truth knows that Obama is a fraud and so is the birth certificate along with his “borrowed” Social security Number, and(created) Selective Service Registration, as he was going into politics and not at age 18. We also know that his Passport was altered when the phony story was put out that “someone” looked at John McCain’s and Hillary Clinton’s(cover up to have Obama’s not questioned). All very clever high tech daring costly actions have been implemented to protect Barack Hussein Obama(or whoever he really is)We also know that he paid up to two million dollars to get birth certificate cases dismissed! All of this so that he could get into the White House and leak to our enemies and share with them in secret, our National Security information, arms, equipment and money. As Communist Valerie Jarrett(known) acted as President and gave Obama the front man his instructions on the destruction of America. WHERE IS THIS PETITION AND IT NEEDS TO BE WHERE PEOPLE CAN FIND IT AND SIGN IT?

  3. Gary, Even IF Stanley was Obama’s Mother and she was old enough, she could have ONLY conferred basis Citizenship on her son and could NOT have conferred Natural Born Citizenship on him. To be an NBC is SOLELY dependent on the circumstances of one’s birth IN the USA to two US Parents.

  4. I shouldn’t have rushed with my comment yesterday. I failed to add the FACT that Barack Obama Sr.(Obama’s purported father) was a British citizen and certainly not even a permanent resident of the USA and thus more clearly explains my contention that by Obama’s own words he could not possibly be a NBC. In fact even Obama’s purported mother was too young to confer her American citizenship to Barry. I am not aware of one scintilla of evidence that even substantiates American citizenship for aka Barack Hussein Obama. It seems to me that he is in fact 1. Barry Soetoro 2. a citizen of Indonesia and 3. a Muslim with… 4. no proof that he was ever born in Hawaii and yet 5. a purveyor of forged identity documents. It is pretty straight forward.

  5. He MUST be prosecuted.. he is a treasonous foreign agent.. He cannot be allowed to just walk away after almost destroying America forever… May he burn in Hell with the rest of his radical Islamic Jihadist buddies .

  6. Elmo, The original French in the Law of Nations says ” Les Naturels,ou indigenes, sont ceux qui sont, nes de la pays de Parents Citoyens” or “Natural Born Citizens are those born in a country of parents who are both citizens”. In arguendo,even if Obama was born in the USA, even if his father was Marshall Davis and his Mother was Stanley Dunham, the fact remains that he lied about that. Therefore, he STILL usurped the Presidency by fraud during war time. Obama’s been proven to be a fraud. Both his BC and his selective service card are forged. He also has used multiple social security numbers. Minor v Happersett is not the sole case which affirmed what an NBC is, “one born IN the United States to parents who are citizens themselves”. We also have The Venus., Wong Kim Ark., Dupont v U.S. and Laity v NY, USSCt. which left Minor v Happersett undisturbed as well as leaving those other cases undisturbed. These cases are still, what we call in the Law Profession , “Good Law”. Obama HAS been “Investigated” by bona-fide Law enforcement personnel. It’s time to PROSECUTE the usurper,fraud,traitor and spy. It’s time to convict him and to punish him appropriately for usurping the Presidency during time of war. My recommendation would be hanging or execution by military firing squad. What Obama did is a violation of 18USC and 10USC (UCMJ). He should have been arrested (8) years ago.

  7. To Gary. Being born in the USA may be enough to make one an NBC – There are supreme court decisions both ways. It needs to be adjudicated by the Supreme court directly addressing the issue of NBC – All Supreme Court mention of NBC has been collateral to other cases, they have never decided the issue directly. It needs to be settled as there are (as I wrote above) that say both that Jus Soli is enough and that one needs both Jus Soli And Jus Sanguinis. It needs to be settled directly by the Supreme Court.
    50/50 may be enough for you – I’ll wait for the Court to Rule or for an investigation to conclude Obama is not an NBC.
    I respect your right to disagree with my thinking and my ultimate decision not to sign “Prosecute”.

  8. To Elmo…Barack Hussein Obama is NOT a NBC by his own admission. He CLAIMS that his father is Barack Obama Sr. That’s good enough for me. At least for now.

  9. I applaud Robert’s work and devotion to the cause but I will refrain from signing at this time.

    I would sign a petition to “Investigate” but as yet I have seen no solid evidence that he is not an NBC – evidence that obama lacks NBC status is circumstantial and speculative at this point.

    Fraudulent documentation – yes – but he could still have been born in America of Let’s say Stanley Anne Dunham and Frank Marshall Davis – or adopted by Anne Dunham and Barack Senior (which would require Hawaii to seal his natural birth records and issue a new document as though he had been “born” at the time of adoption – which may or may not make him an NBC – many questions to answer before you get to “prosecute” – Just my humble opinion. I would sign “investigate” but I will have to pass on “prosecute” pending more evidence regarding lack of NBC status.

  10. I just signed this one.

    Thank you, Sharon Rondeau and Robert Laity, KNOWLEDGE-PATRIOTS each!

    “Every one of America’s 320,000,000 citizens has an inalienable right-to-know, a practical need-to-know and a patriotic duty-to-know the full identity and full life history of any presidential candidate and any incumbent president AND ANY EX-PRESIDENT at any time.”

    KNOWLEDGE-PATRIOTS (formerly “birthers”) “…have a patriotic DUTY-TO-KNOW…”

    Our heart-earned tax dollars remain extorted until 320,000,000 American citizens KNOW the full identity and full life history of the Soros’ Soetoros [Barry and Michelle Soetoro].

  11. I find it extremely odd that the Anti- Trump petitions don’t seem to have any problem with the counter, while the petitions against the Obama regime don’t work. Sharon, I thought at first it was because I was using a mobile phone. So, tried the desktop to see if there was any difference. Nope, I can sign and it says to verify my email, which I do and it says my vote was counted. So, out of curiosity , I sign again and again and again and each time it says my vote was counted. Counter never moves. I know in the past one logs in and if they try to sign again, the system won’t let you. I think something is fishy with whomever is running this website,.
