(Jan. 22, 2019) — On January 21, U.S. Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) officially announced she will run in the 2020 Democratic presidential primary along with what appears to be a crowded field of contenders.

As with her Senate website, her new campaign website omits any reference to her education prior to college.  As The Post & Email has reported, Wikipedia states that Harris was born in Oakland, CA on October 20, 1964 and moved with her mother and sister to Canada at the age of seven following her parents’ divorce.  According to the entry, Harris attended and graduated from Westmount High School in Westmount, Montréal, Québec.

The Canadian Broadcasting Company (CBC) has confirmed that report.  In its January 21, 2019 article, the CBC quoted a former Harris classmate, Dean Smith, describing her as “a good person” who was “always smiling, friendly. A shining light the whole time.”

Smith also reportedly told Radio Canada, paraphrased, that “he can see the influence the city [of Montréal] had on Harris through her politics.”

Of her early years, Harris’s presidential website states only, “Born in Oakland, Kamala Harris is a graduate of Howard University. She earned her law degree from the University of California, Hastings College of the Law.”

According to The Montreal Gazette, Harris wrote about her relocation from Oakland to Québec in her book, “The Truth We Hold: an American Journey.”  The article adds that Harris attended a French-speaking elementary school prior to her enrollment at Westmount.

The introduction to the book, published January 8 of this year, reads, in part:

Senator Kamala Harris’s commitment to speaking truth is informed by her upbringing. The daughter of immigrants, she was raised in an Oakland, California community that cared deeply about social justice; her parents–an esteemed economist from Jamaica and an admired cancer researcher from India–met as activists in the civil rights movement when they were graduate students at Berkeley. Growing up, Harris herself never hid her passion for justice, and when she became a prosecutor out of law school, a deputy district attorney, she quickly established herself as one of the most innovative change agents in American law enforcement.

Included in the book’s introduction is the claim that Harris is “a transformational United States Senator.”  In 2008, Barack Hussein Obama, whose presidential eligibility remains in doubt in the minds of many based on a criminal investigation finding that an image said to represent his “long-form” birth certificate is a forgery, was said to be a “transformational figure” in American politics.

On Monday’s “Good Morning America” on ABC, Harris said that her “parents were very active in the civil-rights movement, and that’s the language that I grew up hearing.”

Her Senate website arguably implies that she spent her childhood in Oakland:

Growing up in Oakland, Kamala had a stroller-eye view of the Civil Rights movement. Through the example of courageous leaders like Thurgood Marshall, Constance Baker Motley, and Charles Hamilton Houston, Kamala learned the kind of character it requires to stand up to the powerful, and resolved to spend her life advocating for those who could not defend themselves.  

In order for Harris to have to served as Alameda County District Attorney, California Attorney General, and a U.S. Senator, she would have had to have been a U.S. citizen and resident of the State of California.

The eligibility criteria for the president and Commander-in-Chief contained in Article II, Section 1, clause 5 of the U.S. Constitution are:

  • 14 years’ residency in the United States
  • 35 years of age or older, and
  • a “natural born Citizen.”

The term “natural born Citizen” is believed by many constitutional scholars and citizen researchers to designate a higher level of allegiance than simply “a citizen of the United States,” the citizenship requirement of U.S. representatives and senators as well as state-level office-holders.

Multiple sources report that Harris’s parents were immigrants who came to the United States less than five years before she was born. Given that U.S. immigration law since 1952 has required a five-year residency for a legal immigrant to apply for citizenship, it is a virtual certainty that neither of her parents was a U.S. citizen when she was born in 1964.

Many contend that a simple birth in the United States is enough to qualify as “natural born,” regardless of the citizenship of the person’s parents.  In modern times, the 14th Amendment is interpreted to bestow U.S. citizenship on any child born on U.S. soil, including its territories, regardless of the status of the parents.  However, the media often conflates “citizen” with “natural born Citizen.”

In July 1787, Founding Father John Jay wrote a letter to Constitutional Convention president George Washington in which he stated:

Permit me to hint, whether it would not be wise & seasonable to provide a strong check to the admission of Foreigners into the administration of our national Government, and to declare expressly that the Command in chief of the american army shall not be given to, nor devolved on, any but a natural born Citizen.

Harris’s Senate office has not responded to inquiries from California citizen Gary Wilmott regarding her parents’ citizenship status at the time of her birth or afterward, and The Post & Email’s attempts to obtain information remain unanswered.

It is unknown whether or not Harris’s mother ever became a U.S. citizen. A Stanford university biography states that Donald Harris at some point naturalized, although it does not state the year.

  1. Gary Wilmott,
    Good comment. Levin looked like a fool when he supported Cruz for president…but his reputation as a “Constitutional Scholar” and nickname “The Great One” made him infallible in the eyes of many. Levin is still making money over toeing the line with Fox News and never mentioning Obama’s ineligibility or identity fraud. On the “Deep State”, I agree the power and control of the Deep State has proven itself to be way greater than I ever realized.
    Still, Trump is our last chance, and addressing this issue is what must happen to defeat the Deep State, drain the Swamp and reset the Constitution. If that is not done everything else is just more blah, blah, blah and we lose……forever.

  2. Bob and Glenn, remember too, that once Hannity’s buddy Mark Levin got behind the “laughable constitutional eligibility” of Ted Cruz, Hannity was all in and nary a peep re: Rafael Junior’s Canadian birth, Cuban daddy and citizenship, etc. I still say that the biggest explanation why no one in Congress and no one in the media did anything about aka Obama’s fraud probably has more to do with threats from the Deep State, particularly the corrupt intelligence communities who were likely most responsible for aka Obama’s “election” to begin with. “We know where your daughter goes to school.” Same rational may very well apply to Donald Trump today.”We” need to keep stirring the pot re: Harris. Write letters to you local papers, call your local talk shows, email editors and media employees, respond with comments to articles on the internet, etc. Make her fraudulent candidacy a constant issue. If you haven’t read my article “The Not So Great Mark Levin”, you can see how disingenuous and absolutely ridiculous (in his own words) his attempts to contort and distort the intent and true meaning of Natural Born Citizen. Talk about dishonest.

  3. REMEMBER 08-28-09! [CARLTON + RONDEAU: I HAVE A “natural born Citizen” REALITY]

    Thank God for Sharon Rondeau, the incredibly capable and hard-working custodian of humanity’s fingertip accessible, The Post and Email website, and its precious ARCHIVES that are approaching 10 YEARS OF ASSEMBLY OF “natural born [U.S.] Citizen” HUMAN THOUGHT AND RESEARCH; The P&E has rightfully become the world’s manicured one-stop-shop for anything “natural born [U.S.] Citizen”.

    Sharon is an accomplished harpist who harps each day on the true, and only, originalist foundational meaning of “natural born Citizen” 1789- 2019, and for this relentless patriotic effort, I, for one, am hugely grateful.

    Weaponized with The P&E archives, it is time in 2019 to GO ON THE OFFENSIVE and make The Post and Email the only Gold Standard in vetting any U.S. presIDential candIDate/incumbent presIDent/ex-presIDent, because most of today’s corporate media is a controlled propaganda enterprise of the borderless Theft Left, because our complicit borderless pension-paid-off U.S. Government-citizenry is out of control with a life all its own, because our judicial branch is a proven syndicated “just us” network, because our unaccounted “licensed to lie” legal profession tends to promote a titanic panic planet “World Order”, because too many of our duped and doped polluticians are borderless power addicts who hit on We the People each day to get high, and because:

    [The Post and Email] Facts are stubborn things; and whatever may be our wishes, our inclinations, or the dictates of our passions, they cannot alter the state of facts and evidence. – John Adams in 1770

    In the minds of our Founding Fathers, after the Revolutionary War and the ratification of the U.S. Constitution in 1789, humans residing on U.S. soil instantly became new “United States citizens”; all Presidents chosen from these newly-minted “citizens” would become “grandfathered” natural born Citizen-Presidents whose biological parents were also newly-minted “citizens”, until President Van Buren became the first “non-grandfathered” U.S. President who was born on U.S. soil to U.S. citizen-parents.

    While the Founding Fathers did not specifically define “natural born Citizen”, they only knew what they knew in 1789 via Vattel’s definition of those THREE DELIBERATELY SPECIFIC WORDS OF ART, “natural born Citizen”, being, in 1789, U.S. citizens born in the U.S. to U.S. citizen- parents. Any definition other than this simple original definition is risky, borderless and not specifically ratified by the Founding Fathers, or specifically amended thereafter, even if any fact-fighter today passionately wishes it were so.

    The U.S. Constitution is the only supreme law of the land; we can either follow it as originally written and originally thought out, and previously amended, or we can amend it today to agree with a formally-ratified majority-thinking of 2019.

    Therefore, my vote herein is that Kamal Devin Harris is not, and never will be, a legal Constitutional “natural born Citizen” unless and until the U.S. Constitution is amended to allow her to be a “natural born Citizen” of un-disclosed un-naturalized foreign-influenced parents, at the continued reckless risk of foreign take-over of the United States following the proven deviant foreign-influenced-thinking of The Obama Error of 08-28-08- 2019.

    LET THE WORLD NOW KNOW, The P&E vetting herein finds: NO AMENDMENT, NO KAMALA DEVIN HARRIS for Constitutional presIDential candIDate 2019- 2020!


  4. I listened to her YouTube/Radio Show today on the subject of “natural born Citizen”. She clearly stated near the end of her radio show segment on NBC that a natural born Citizen is a person born in the country of parents who are both citizens of the country at the time their child is born. Thus she seems to have moved away from Publius Huldah‘s definition (focused on the citizenship of the parents and especially father solely as I recall) to that of Vattel. Someone can refresh PH’s exact position if needed here. Vattel’s definition in his legal treatise on Natural Law which was popular and circulating and read by the founders and framers is the only definition that fits the founders and framers intent, meaning, and understanding of the intended purpose of the natural born citizen term, a national security clause, to prevent anyone born with foreign allegiance and citizenship and thus foreign influence on them from ever becoming Commander in Chief of our military. Her writings and statements on her radio show today comport with the founders and framers intent and purpose for selecting the natural born Citizen restriction on who could be a future President and CinC. Here is the link to her radio broadcast today:

  5. Glenn Harrison,

    Great comment……. I also heard Hannity, both on his radio program and on his TV show saying no one vetted Obama, (except him). If Hannity vetted Obama he did a good job of keeping everything that really matters to himself. I have no doubt that Hannity and the others who never mention Obama’s usurpation and identity fraud know a lot about it, and have for many years. They have IMO been told what they can and cannot say and they do what they are told. They are part of the cover-up which has been in place since Barry was allowed to be sworn-in in back in 2009. A crime so far, “too big to prosecute”, was committed at that time and Hillary was supposed to be the after Obama cover. She failed and the birther Donald Trump was elected…..and we are watching the panicked efforts of all complicit in The Obama Fraud to remove President Trump from office before he drops the, “truth bomb”, on them and they have to answer why they were/are part of giving America’s government and her military to the enemy.
    I know, I repeat myself………………..

  6. REMEMBER 08-28-63! [KING: I HAVE A DREAM]






  7. Off topic but a parallel situation. Also, Keeping Hannity and Fox TV accountable.

    Yesterday afternoon on the Hannity Radio Show I heard Hannity speak twice that he had
    “vetted” Obama. Really?!

    However, on this show Hannity did mention some of Obama’s short-comings but he neglected to mention Obama’s major flaw and infraction (USURPATION). Here Hannity willfully avoided to relay that Obama was a fraud and a usurper.

    I recall that before Trump became president he had many many interviews with Hannity.
    At Hannity’s interviews at least a major time Trump thump Obama’s lacking credentials to be president. Hannity at this interview remained silent and mute and did not respond or ask further questions about questing Obama’s fitness to obtain the Oval Office. One of these
    event occurred on 7/18/2012. (as I recall this was a radio show)

    On 7/19/2012 Lt. Zullo was to have appeared on the Fox TV Hannity Show to
    reveal updated information and evidence of Usurper Obama. However, this show was
    canned at the last moment. Therefore Fox TV and Hannity had to have received some of
    Sheriff Arpaio’s information and evidence of the fraud of Obama…

    So, has Fox TV and the Hannity Radio Show been honest. NOT!

    P.S. How many rallies did Trump get interviewed by Hannity and how many discussion did
    they discuss Obama’s lack of credentials (off air)?

  8. It is my feeling that once our government messed up (willfully ignored and violated Article 2, Section 1, Clause 5) in 2007-08 and facilitated the election of an ineligible “Obama” (or whoever he actually was/is), they, the office holders in our government, in all three branches, decided not to risk their elitism and self-righteous reputations as well as their get-out-of-jail-free statuses, to the extent that they no longer can afford to care about or adhere to our laws and constitution. Welcome to our decade-long, ongoing constitutional crisis and to your free ride, Kamala Harris!

  9. Harris is more like “O” in drag.However she is not likeable at all. She’ll never win b/c you gotta have karisma and she doesn’t have. In fact most of the dems running don’t have except for maybe Biden.

  10. It would seem to me that she has many questions to answer. One big one. Why does she show allegiance to Jamaica and India. How did she get elected to any office. I have had my fill of people trying to run my country where it appears that they don’t like America. Not exactly how I wanted to word that, but that’s how it came out.

  11. Attention U.S. Senate chamber: Ya got your collusion ears on? My two rubles worth:
    1. Harris’ nativity indicates implied loyalties to two foreign countries – Jamaica and India, but not the U.S.A.
    2. Harris – Not a U.S. citizen at birth because her parents were not “subject to the jurisdiction of”, in accordance with the 14th Amendment. Harris is another misinterpretation of the 14th Amendment.
    3. Harris – Nothing in Chapter 3 – United States Citizens at Birth (INA 301 and 309) that indicates that Harris is a U.S, citizen at birth, because this law does not give an instance of a person being born on U.S. soil to two aliens (citizens of foreign countries). See:

    As posted at the American Thinker website today, I shall repeat a similar comment for the edification of our 100 U.S. Senators currently serving their constituents:
    To wit:
    You can thank the U.S. Senate over three presidential election cycles for conflicting the natural born Citizenship meaning. The four most criminal U.S. Senators that destroyed the natural born Citizenship requirement, as found in the U.S. Constitution, Article II, Section 1, Clause 5, are/were (1.) Zer0Bama, (2.) McCain. (3.) Cruz, and (4.) Rubio. The other 96 U.S. Senators just went along for the ride, as the U.S. Senate destroyed the 2008 election through the innocent-sounding Senate Resolution (SR) 511 that justified McCains presidential ineligibility by referencing the repealed Naturalization Act of 1790, while conveniently ignoring Zer0Bama’s presidential ineligibility. Ineligible presidential candidates Rubio and Cruz totally destroyed their honesty by tossing their sombreros in the presidential candidate ring in 2016.

    Each of the four listed above are/were not natural born Citizens. The amount of conflation of the definition of a singular definition of natural born Citizenship is astounding. i.e. (a.) born in the U.S.A., (b.) born overseas to two U.S. citizens, (c.) born overseas to one U.S. citizen parent, and (d.) born a citizen per 14th Amendment – all incomplete specifications. These people who attempt to create designer natural born Citizen definitions are complicating an otherwise simple definition. The easy definition is as follows: born in the U.S.A. to two U.S.A. citizen parents

    Being a natural born Citizen is ‘settled science’ because in order for one to be a natural born Citizen, no law is required. It occurs naturally by being born in the U.S.A. to two U.S.A. citizen parents. No law exists that defines who or what a natural born Citizen is. Anything less than the minimum requirements (born in the U.S.A. to two U.S.A. citizen parents) is a statutory (laws in-place) U.S. citizen and ineligible for the office of the president of the U.S.A.

    Read to abolish ignorance:

  12. No way we barely survived Obama, she’s the last thing we need in the White House an anti-American pro open borders terrorist lover traitor

  13. Well not exactly an anchor baby. Her parents were here legally. Harris however is certainly not a Natural Born Citizen. Constitutionally INELIGIBLE to be POTUS (Article 2) or VPOTUS (12th Amendment). What an arrogant, angry, nasty, mean-spirited, hypocritical creature.
