(Sep. 7, 2018) — At approximately 9:30 AM EDT Friday morning, someone utilizing a “U.S. Senate” ISP accessed The Post & Email’s recent article investigating the issue of whether or not Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) is a “natural born Citizen” eligible to serve as president.

The article was based on research conducted by California resident Gary Wilmott, who contacted Harris’s office by phone and in writing beginning late last year.

This week, Harris demonstrated her opposition toward, if not open suspicion of, U.S. Supreme Court nominee and current federal appellate Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh amid much media attention.  Although elected to the Senate for the first time in 2016, a campaign website for Harris remains active and has as its first page a petition opposing his nomination.

As evidenced by a Yahoo! search by this writer early Friday afternoon, Harris’s questioning of Kavanaugh has captured the attention of many.

Harris has recently been touted as a possible presidential candidate “more qualified to be president than Donald Trump.”

Last December Wilmott contacted Harris’s office in writing to inform her that based on his research, she does not qualify for the presidency.  “Article II, Section 1, Clause 5 mandates that a president be a NATURAL-born citizen, which you clearly are not,” Wilmott wrote. “At the time of your birth, BOTH of your parents were citizens of foreign countries, so your birth in California makes you at best a NATIVE-born citizen (anchor baby?) under the prevailing view of the 14th Amendment. Lest you think that I have Republican bias I would also point out that presidential wannabes Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio also fail to meet this higher standard of citizenship. Their campaigns were fraudulent and in clear violation of the U.S. Constitution.”

Wilmott later followed up by telephone in an attempt to discover if Harris’s parents were U.S. citizens at the time of her birth on October 20, 1964 in Oakland, CA. His questions were never answered, with the staffer with whom he spoke stating that the citizenship of Harris’s parents is “private” information.

Harris’s mother, who immigrated to the United States at the age of 19 in 1960, passed away in 2009, according to an obituary in the mainstream paper SFGate. Her father, originally from Jamaica, arrived in California a year later and became an Economics professor at Stanford University, retiring in 1998.  His biography states that he naturalized but not specifically when it occurred.

According to federal law, immigrants who arrive in the country legally and apply to become citizens must have resided in the country for five years.  Article I, Section 8 of the U.S. Constitution designates Congress as the body “To establish an uniform Rule of Naturalization” for newcomers permitted to enter the country.

Article II, detailing the role of the nation’s chief executive, contains specific eligibility criteria not expressed in other articles of the Constitution. The criteria, as written by the Framers, are:

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; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.

The more stringent qualification of “natural born Citizen,” as opposed to simply “Citizen” for U.S. senators and representatives, is believed to have been the Founders’ attempt to prevent anyone with foreign allegiance from leading the newly-minted nation and its military.

Statements recorded in The Congressional Globe and the 1875 U.S. Supreme Court case of Minor v. Happersett, at a minimum, indicate that the term “natural born Citizen” signified an individual born in the United States to parents who were U.S. citizens. Over the years, that meaning, in many circles, has been diluted to mean simply “born in the United States,” or, in some cases, something else entirely.

In 2015, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz declared his candidacy for the presidency amid considerable public controversy as his campaign went forward. Cruz was born in Canada to a mother presumed to have retained her U.S. citizenship at the time and a father originally from Cuba who eventually took Canadian citizenship.

Cruiz’s campaign refused to answer The Post & Email’s questions about his eligibility.

In May 2016, just after Cruz conceded the Republican primaries to then-candidate Donald Trump, The Post & Email was told by a highly reliable source that he had confirmed that Cruz’s mother took Canadian citizenship while the couple resided in Calgary between 1968 and 1974.

While many legal scholars argued that Cruz was eligible to the presidency, there appeared to be an equal number arguing against his eligibility quite publicly.  The same public discussion did not take place concerning Barack Hussein Obama.

In 2007 and 2008, Obama’s eligibility was questioned by many Americans on several points.  For years, credible sources such as NPR and the Associated Press had reported him as having been “born in Kenya,” while a 2006 article in The Honolulu Advertiser stated his birth as having occurred in Indonesia. Some sources later changed their articles to say that he was “born in Hawaii,” but no hospital there has confirmed his birth.  Various mainstream articles and books differ as to exactly when Obama lived in Indonesia, a fact to which Obama has readily admitted.

Numerous outlets reported that at the time Obama allegedly lived in Indonesia, a child had to be a citizen of that country in order to attend school.

In May 2012, Breitbart News published a 1991 promotional booklet written by Obama’s then-literary agent, Acton & Dystel, containing his biography in anticipation of the publication of his first book. The bio indicates Obama as having been “born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia and Hawaii.” After Breitbart published the booklet, Miriam Goderich of Dystel & Goderich explained that Obama’s stated birthplace in the booklet was “nothing more than a fact checking error by me.”

Also at issue for those questioning Obama’s eligibility was his claim of a father born in Kenya, then a British protectorate, who came to the United States to study and never became a U.S. citizen.

Throughout Obama’s campaigns and two-term presidency, the mainstream media refused to investigate whether or not he was, in fact, constitutionally eligible to hold the office.  Anyone questioning his background, citizenship or allegiance was irrationally labeled a “birther” or “a racist.”

On Obama’s 2008 “Fight the Smears” website, he openly admitted to having been born a dual citizen of Kenya and the United States, raising yet another question as to whether or not he qualified as a “natural born Citizen” of the U.S.

An investigation launched in August 2011 and concluded in December 2016 deemed the “long-form” birth certificate image posted by the Obama White House in April 2011 appearing to show his birth in Honolulu a “computer-generated forgery.” Also found to be fraudulent by the same investigators was his Selective Service registration form. Inexplicably, government agencies, including the FBI, refused to take any action.

An article published Wednesday in The Atlantic argues that a Supreme Court candidate who “can’t be vetted shouldn’t be confirmed.” However, when a candidate runs for president, the same thorough vetting often does not take place on the part of the political parties or the voters.

Harris’s Wikipedia page states that she spent her formative years in Montreal, Canada, where her mother worked as a cancer researcher in association with McGill University, which is borne out in Dr. Harris’s obituary.  However, Kamala Harris’s Senate biography arguably implies that she was raised in Oakland and not Canada.  Whether or not her mother became a Canadian citizen while living in Canada with her young daughters for 16 years remains an open question, and, by extension, whether or not Harris herself was ever considered “Canadian” in order to attend school there.

  1. Russ, I explain in my book “imposters in the Oval Office”, why McCain was NOT an NBC and therefore was NOT eligible to be President. He was born IN Colon, Panama.

  2. Bottom line?
    The bottom line is that there are a lot of people in the USA who would like nothing better then to see the Constitution flushed.
    Who would think such thoughts?
    Morning Joe and Miss Democratic Party Waters, Paul Ryan and all the rest of the people who tend to ire me, you know, the DACA and amnesty crowd; the “moderate” and “highjacking” fools; and the brain dead audience of “The View”.
    Since they let Barry “Obama” Soetoro masquerade as our president, it seems as if the floodgates are open.
    Look, Obama was never vetted so why give a flying hoot about another nut case such as Harris?
    The key is to expose Obama for the fraud that he is; the “cheap suit” from South Side Chicago; the Muslim who took orders from Tehran via Valerie Jarrett, the go-between for the Muslim Brotherhood.
    Someday I’ll tell you what I REALLY think.

  3. Anyone:

    1. Is it true that only Congress can enact citizen NATURALIZATION LAWS from time to time?

    2. Is it true that only a duly ratified Constitutional amendment, not any act by Congress et al, can change, or formally define (in lieu of a formal Supreme Court opinion), or abolish altogether, the “natural born Citizen” CLAUSE of 1789?

    For a consistent, objective, unambiguous, non-contestable definition of “natural born Citizen” today, who is driving the bus?

    3. Is the US Constitution of 1789, as amended, the Supreme Law of the land (US soil) and US jurisdictions (ships, overseas US embassies et al) today?

    4. Does every single US citizen, all 327,000,000+ of them, have an inalienable RIGHT TO KNOW (open transparency vs suspicious/sinister secrecy), a PRACTICAL NEED TO KNOW (for voting purposes et al) and a PATRIOTIC DUTY TO KNOW (US servicemen/LAKIN to follow or not to follow an unidentified/muslim Commander-in-Chief while in harms way in the Middle East et al) the full irrefutable verifiable IDENTITY AND LIFE HISTORY of any presIDential candIDate, and any incumbent presIDent and any ex-presIDent at any time?

    Isn’t any deliberately covered-up presIDential identity-knowledge for so-called protection of “privacy” actually “piracy” of the People’s inalienable presIDential-knowledge-property?

    REMEMBER 12-7-41………………….9-11-01…08-28-08!


  4. I wish to add some clarification to previous comment.
    Congress entirely repealed the Naturalization Act of 1790 by that of the Naturalization Act of 1795 with the following statement found in the Naturalization Act of 1795:
    “SEC. 4. And be it further enacted, That the Act intituled, “An act to establish an uniform rule of naturalization,” passed the twenty-sixth day of March, one thousand seven hundred and ninety, be, and the same is hereby repealed.”

    Sorry for any confusion by my omission.

    in·tit·ule (ĭn-tĭch′o͞ol)
    tr.v. in·tit·uled, in·tit·ul·ing, in·tit·ules Chiefly British
    To give a designation or title to (a legislative act, for example).

  5. Senate Resolution (SR) 511 stated in-part:
    “Whereas such limitations would be inconsistent with the purpose and intent of the natural born Citizen clause of the Constitution of the United States, as evidenced by the First Congress’s own statute defining the term natural born Citizen;”


    Looks to me as the authors of SR 511 were alluding to the first Naturalization Act (1790) whereby it stated that: [Excerpt] “And the children of citizens of the United States that may be born beyond Sea, or out of the limits of the United States, shall be considered as natural born Citizens:……”

    If so, 100 Senators pulled the wool over the eyes of the electorate. They did not consider telling the electorate that the first Naturalization Act (1790) was nullified by the following corrective text: “and the children of citizens of the United States, born out of the limits and jurisdiction of the United States, shall be considered as citizens of the United States:….”
    To wit: “SEC. 4. And be it further enacted, That the Act intituled, “An act to establish an uniform rule of naturalization,” passed the twenty-sixth day of March, one thousand seven hundred and ninety, be, and the same is hereby repealed.”

    Congress cannot make (grant) a person a natural born (US) Citizen. They can only grant statutory citizenship through US Constitution, Article I authority. The authors and signers of SR 511 positively deceived.

  6. From one of the commenters:
    “Didn’t several courts (other than SCOTUS) rule that birth in the United States conveyed natural-born citizenship?”

    1 taxis conveyed guests to the station: transport, carry, bring, take, fetch, bear, move, ferry, shuttle, shift, transfer.
    2 he conveyed the information to me: communicate, pass on, make known, impart, relay, transmit, send, hand on/off, relate, tell, reveal, disclose.
    3 it’s impossible to convey how I felt: express, communicate, get across/over, put across/over, indicate, say.
    4 he conveys an air of competence: project, exude, emit, emanate.

    Commenter’s statement contains as much positive logic as saying only persons born through the birth canal are natural born citizens; Caesarean section birthed babies do not apply (sarcasm).

    Rafael E. (Ted) Cruz, also an undocumented alien, has contributed to the delinquency of the usurper B. HUSSEIN Obama by his actions of being a presidential candidate during the 2016 Primaries. Birth alone in the USA as the single qualifying factor to run for president would automatically disqualify Ted. If Ted was born in the USA, which he wasn’t, then both of his parents should have been US citizens at the time of his birth.

    It is a mystery as to Ted’s mother’s citizenship when Ted was born in Canada and so too is the mystery surrounding the necessary immigration documentation that stated for sure if Ted’s parents followed the law to certify Ted’s US citizenship according to US law. Ted has not disclosed his US immigration documentation to the public.

  7. Here’s my opinion based on 10 years of observation and logic:

    Why would any real American want anyone other than a natural born citizen,….born of citizen parents on American soil,…..to be our president and even more importantly, commander-in-chief of the most powerful military in the world? Only if they wanted to install as president and commander-in-chief someone who they knew would be willing to weaken America and ignore her Constitution would they want the ability to elect those who are not natural born citizens. There are millions of natural born citizens who are eligible,…..but they will never include, for example, a child born on American soil and raised by illegal immigrant parents from Syria. Attempts were made by Congress to change the Constitution’s eligibility requirements, they failed and the requirement for NBC was just ignored and BS-ed into something it isn’t. Obama’s actions to weaken America in every way possible became exhibit ‘A’ of why the logical and historical evidence backed decision of the framers of the Constitution was to define NBC as, “born of citizen parents on American soil”. There has been an effort to get more ineligible candidates to take the pressure off the ineligible, identity fraud, ex-putative president Barack Obama as fear of Trump, ”the birther”, has Congress and all the many complicit in the Obama Fraud in a big-time panic…..for many good reasons. Watching this unfold since 2008 makes it easy to understand now. One of the major reasons for the left’s panic over Trump’s Supreme Court appointees is that they will finally rule on presidential eligibility in favor of the framers intent. Preventing that from happening is as important to the Deep State globalist as keeping abortion legal, it just can’t be mentioned. Why is it so important to some people that the protection provided by having the commander-in-chief of America’s military being raised by parents who are American citizens, which increases the probably they will have allegiance to America first and foremost, be given up for anyone who doesn’t meet this eligibility requirement? Only if someone wants the kind of, “fundamental change”, provided by Obama and his handlers will they ignore and attempt to convince others to ignore the framers original meaning of NBC. This is not hard to understand.

  8. Here we go again. During the 2016 election it was a mockery of our constitution and a free for all for anyone wanting to run for President most notable Ted Cruz who was “BORN IN CANADA” and I ask who challenged this? No excuse for Ted Cruz none. What Congressman? What Court? What main stream media outlet? More important what other candidate at the time? Start asking questions, keep calling your representatives every day.

  9. A flashback in history in the battle to support and defend the “natural born Citizen” national security term in our presidential eligibility clause of our U.S. Constitution, Article II Section 1 Clause 5: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6MW0rVEqEAo While we were turned away by the courts using technicalities such as standing, jurisdiction, and political question the message could still not be silenced. The message reached the Supreme Court as we even heard from Justice Thomas that they are avoiding that question. Because they know we the people are correct. So they ducked the issue and allowed the lower courts to try and frustrate the issue. The battle continues to this day to fight for the national security of our nation as to who can be its President and Commander-in-Chief of our military, or VP, i.e., fighting for enforcement of the original intent, meaning, and understanding of the constitutional term “natural born Citizen”.

  10. TRUMP: money business as Obama: monkey business

  11. What part of S.R. 511 says that two citizen parents are required? Why wasn’t that applied to Obama?

    Why would Malik have Barack’s birth certificate?

    And didn’t the California courts agree with Harris that Bowen wasn’t required to investigate a candidate’s eligibility?

  12. This was posted as a comment in my blog re Kamala Harris:

    “Please be informed that Ms. Kamala Harris was the CA Attorney General who defended Socialist Debra Bowen, the CA Secretary of State when I sued in court to have Mr. Soetoro removed from the POTUS ballot in CA. Harris argued that the Sec of State did not have the Constitutional duty to enforce the US Constitution!”

  13. I posted a new item in my blog today with new dissertations added for two more non-natural born Citizen politicians, often mentioned as seeking high national office. They are known to us here but not to others. So I’m spreading the word. See: https://cdrkerchner.wordpress.com/2018/09/08/natural-born-citizen-a-list-of-politicians-aspiring-to-high-national-office-who-are-not-constitutionally-eligible/ I also dropped an excerpt of it over in the very active Free Republic discussion forum. Drop on by to that forum too if you wish to join the fun there: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/chat/3686017/posts

  14. Ohell’s brother Malik Obama posted that Ohell was born in Kenya he posted his real birth certificate on Twitter… posted around March 2017 …. check it out … born in Kenya, his half brother born in Kenya would know.. also his father was never a citizen, another reason Ohell not Natural born per Sen Resolution SR511 which says for McPain must be born American soil and parents (plural) citizens at birth… Ohell a usurper, never qualified to be president

  15. Nikita’s_UN_Shoe — In your second point, it doesn’t even matter whether Cruz’s mother became a Canadian citizen or not. Because lyin’ Ted was born in Canada, if either of his parents was a US citizen, under the US Immigration and Naturalization Act of 1952, the citizen parent still must submit a form 600 (Application for Certificate of Citizenship) for a child born outside the US. Currently lyin’ Ted is STILL an illegal alien unless he can show that Certificate of Citizenship! Sadly, it is not just the left who indulges in hypocrisy and double standards, but many on the right who refuse to hold our representatives to the same laws. As an adult, Cruz can still file a form 600 with the appropriate paperwork, BUT if his mother became a Canadian citizen then he is INELIGIBLE to file that form and must naturalize like any other alien. Texans have proven that they could care less about the Constitution because they have allowed Cruz to continue to hold office and even under Texas law it is a felony to hold congressional office without being a citizen.

  16. Just FYI: Elaine Chao, Secretary of Transportation is NOT a Natural Born Citizen, Born in Taiwan in 1953 to Chinese citizen parents. Came to the United States at the age of eight in 1961. If there was a constitutional amendment that mandated that the presidential succession be limited strictly to Natural Born Citizens, Chao would be ineligible. Perhaps such an amendment should specify that the succession process, if necessary, simply skip those persons who are not NBCs.

  17. Shouldn’t all of these positions be filled by Natural Born Citizens?

    Order of succession:

    No. Office Current officer
    1 Vice President Mike Pence (R)
    2 Speaker of the House of Representatives Paul Ryan (R)
    3 President Pro Tempore of the Senate Orrin Hatch (R)

    12 Secretary of Health and Human Services Alex Azar (R)
    13 Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Ben Carson (R)
    14 Secretary of Transportation Elaine Chao (R)[a]

    17 Secretary of Veterans Affairs Robert Wilkie (R)
    18 Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen (I)

  18. I am working on a project as we speak that deals with Cruz specifically. Hope to reveal very soon. It won’t be a game changer but it will be interesting. Stay tuned.

  19. First Point.
    U.S. citizens consist of two basic types:
    1. Natural born: this is the majority of the population and they are persons born on U.S. soil to two U.S. citizens.
    2. Statutory: this is all other combinations that does not = a natural born Citizen. I reserve the right to call all infants born on U.S. soil to illegal alien parents as non-U.S. citizens.
    Summary: Kamala Harris is a statutory U.S. citizen and ineligible for the U.S. presidency.

    Second Point.
    Quote from this article: “In May 2016, just after Cruz conceded the Republican primaries to then-candidate Donald Trump, The Post & Email was told by a highly reliable source that he had confirmed that Cruz’s mother took Canadian citizenship while the couple resided in Calgary between 1968 and 1974.”
    This is the first time that I have read this revelation on any website, but in the past, I suspected it. If true, Texas and the U.S. Constitution has been snookered by an illegal alien Rafael E. Cruz and this time it was not HUSSEIN Obama.

    Third Point.
    A new Constitutional Amendment should be created to make sure that any Speaker of the House possesses the same qualifications as the Article II President for the purpose of Presidential succession after the Vice President. Maybe the dialog leading up to this newly created Amendment will reveal to the world the unConstitutionality and audacity of the putative HUSSEIN Obama presidency.

  20. ““At the time of your birth, BOTH of your parents were citizens of foreign countries, so your birth in California makes you at best a NATIVE-born citizen (anchor baby?) under the prevailing view of the 14th Amendment.”

    Please to explain why some people of 1803 say that President must be native citizen?

  21. As noted more than once previously here on The Post & Email, the Congressional Research Service based its conclusion that a “citizen” is the same as a “natural born citizen” on the “Naturalization Act of 1790” while ignoring the “Naturalization Act of 1795”, which was essentially the same as its 1790 namesake except for the deletion of the term “natural born citizen” from its definition of citizenship. Such was the “smoke and mirrors” on which Congress relied to summarily dismiss any/all questions about Obama’s eligibility.

    Hopefully whomever at the U.S. Senate accessed The Post & Email’s article on Kamala Harris’s presidential eligibility is inquisitive enough to peruse other articles re presidential eligibility here on The Post & Email, and has enough integrity to demand a Congressional investigation into same.

  22. I started a new list/collection in my SCRIBD collections of articles I and others have put together. It is … often mentioned politicians that are not a “natural born Citizen” to constitutional standards: https://www.scribd.com/lists/22182725/Politicians-Who-Are-Not-A-Natural-Born-Citizen More will be added to the list as we get closer to the 2020 election cycle. More to come, I’m sure, as both major political parties no longer have any desire to uphold the true original intent, meaning, and understanding of the “natural born Citizen” term in the presidential eligibility clause of our Constitution. What will be telling is how Donald Trump handles this issue as candidates start formally declaring their intent to run in 2020 for President or VP.

  23. Will Harris be the next gift that “keeps on giving”?

    It seems to me that all others are vetted, Military Members, Police Cadets, Postal Workers,
    Prison Guards, Nurses, Doctors, Health Care workers, and etc… except Congressmen, Senators, and Presidents.

    Perhaps we need a House and Senate bill that will be called, “The Obama Veridic Bill. Wouldn’t this be better then naming a building or a park in his name?
