(Nov. 27, 2019) — [Editor’s Note: Early Wednesday morning, The Post & Email received the following letter, with a separate signed signature page, from Robert Laity, a P&E reader and constitutional activist who previously sued in New York State courts and wrote to the U.S. Supreme Court over the Article II, Section 1, clause 5 “natural born Citizen” presidential criterion which he believes has not been met by numerous recent presidential candidates.  One such candidate, Barack Hussein Obama, served two terms in the Oval Office and produced a “long-form” birth certificate image which was deemed fraudulent by a five-year criminal investigation.

Lead investigator Mike Zullo has said that He was told by two U.S. intelligence agents that it is “an open secret” that Obama was not born in the United States. The issue of a candidate’s birthplace is one prong of the “natural born Citizen” requirement, according to Laity and others’ interpretations of the clause.

Laity’s second issue is the New York State Board of Elections’ misrepresentation of the “natural born Citizen” requirement, which the agency expresses as “born a citizen,” a discrepancy he has attempted to bring to the Board’s attention for more than a decade. An inquiry as to the wording’s departure from that which is stated in Article II made by this publication more than two years ago similarly received no response.

Laity is author of “Imposters in the Oval Office,” available here.]

Re: Report of Contact

Dear Mr. Quail,

This letter serves to confirm my telephonic contact and the discussion that ensued with your office on November 25, 2019.  The gist of said discussion was regarding the 2020 Presidential election. I apprised your office that I had sued the State of New York in 2008, 2012 and 2016 regarding the appearance of candidates, on the ballot, for the Office of President who did not meet the established and longstanding U.S. Supreme Court definition of  the Article II, U.S. Constitution term of art “Natural Born Citizen”.

Pursuant to Article II, U.S. Constitution no person except one who is a “Natural Born Citizen” of the United States is eligible to enter into the office of President of the United States. The U.S. Supreme Court has defined the term “Natural Born Citizen” as “One born in the United States to parents who are both U.S. Citizens themselves”- Minor v. Happersett, USSCt. (1874) (9-0).

Furthermore, in 2008 I formally notified this board that it was misrepresenting the Article II constitutional qualification criteria for being President, on it’s official website, as being “born a citizen”. The proper and appropriate legal term of art and U.S. Constitutional language  is “Natural Born Citizen”. The two terms of art “born a citizen” and “Natural born citizen” are not tantamount. I further notified your office that the State of NY is facing a third lawsuit, which


I am prepared to file in the 2020 election cycle. Since 2008, no less then (7) ineligible candidates have ran for the office of the President of the United States in derogation of the U.S. Constitution. Those people are Barack Obama and John McCain in 2008, Barack Obama again in 2012, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio and Bobby Jindal in 2016 and now in 2020 Tulsi Gabbard and Kamala Harris. A pattern of unlawful usurpations has now become evident on it’s face.  Placing ineligible candidates on the NY State ballot is in derogation of NY State Election Law Sec. 61-122 (2)

I trust that you will take the appropriate and necessary corrective actions concerning these recidivistic attempts to circumvent the constitutional controls which were instituted by the founding fathers, against foreign influence into the sovereign affairs of the United States of America. The NY State Board was apprised eleven years ago of the misrepresentation of eligibility criteria on it’s website. The States continued refusal to correct that error after eleven years is malfeasant.

  1. Directly from the Federal Election Commission (FEC) website:

    “The FEC administers and enforces the Federal Election Campaign Act, the Presidential Election Campaign Fund Act and the Presidential Primary Matching Payment Account Act. Those acts and amendments, which are passed by Congress and signed by the President, are collected and restated as law in Title 52 and Title 26 of the U.S. Code.”

    That statement rests as easy on my mind as Congress and the Executive office passing pay raises for themselves. That being written (said), today I have forwarded an email to the FEC office of Inspector General to look into the fraudulent presidential campaigns of eight individuals’ federal presidential campaigns. So, if the Legislative and the Executive branches vote-in their own pay raises, the following text in an email to an organization that polices itself should result in a big zero; but, it never hurts to put bureaucrats’ feet to the fire and laugh at their obfuscating words or saying that “Sorry, but I’m not the regular crewchief” – jargon found on a USAF flight line to defer action.

    Correct me if I am wrong, but I believe that the only thing that I left out of the following below text to the FEC was a reminder that any monies sent to the presidential campaigns of these eight individuals is illegal and that those individuals accepting campaign monies on behalf of these eight individuals should be included in any investigations.

    Here is the text directly addressed to the Director of the FEC:

    It has come to my attention that beginning in April of 2008 to the present your organization has allowed certain persons to run for the office of the presidency of the United States of America against the U.S. Constitution’s Article II, Section 1, Clause 5 natural born Citizen requirement.

    A natural born Citizen is a person that is born in the United States of America to parents who are themselves U.S. citizens. This definition of what constitutes a natural born Citizen has been affirmed and uncontested during debate among the U.S. justices leading up to the Minor v. Happersett voter-rights decision of 1874.

    Excerpt from this debate: “Whoever, then, was one of the people of either of these States when the Constitution of the United States was adopted, became ipso facto a citizen-a member of the nation created by its adoption. He was one of the persons associating together to form the nation, and was, consequently, one of its original citizens. As to this there has never been a doubt. Disputes have arisen as to whether or not certain persons or certain classes of persons were part of the people at the time, but never as to their citizenship if they were.”

    “Additions might always be made to the citizenship of the United States in two ways: first, by birth, and second, by naturalization. This is apparent from the Constitution itself, for it provides that ‘no person except a natural-born citizen, or a citizen of the United States at the time of the adoption of the Constitution, shall be eligible to the office of President,’ and that Congress shall have power ‘to establish a uniform rule of naturalization.’ Thus new citizens may be born or they may be created by naturalization.”

    “The Constitution does not, in words, say who shall be natural-born citizens. Resort must be had elsewhere to ascertain that. At common-law, with the nomenclature of which the framers of the Constitution were familiar, it was never doubted that all children born in a country of parents who were its citizens became themselves, upon their birth, citizens also. These were natives, or natural-born citizens, as distinguished from aliens or foreigners. Some authorities go further and include as citizens children born within the jurisdiction without reference to the citizenship of their [88 U.S. 162, 168] 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. It is sufficient for everything we have now to consider that all children born of citizen parents within the jurisdiction are themselves citizens.”

    So there you have it. The above unequivocal statement firmly confirms what was written into the U.S. Constitution, Article II, Section 1, Clause 5: “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.”

    Those individuals who have allegedly unconstitutionally run for the office of the presidency because they are not natural born Citizens, both past and present, are:
    1. Barack HUSSEIN Obama
    2. John S. McCain, III
    3. Marco Rubio
    4. Rafael E. (Ted) Cruz
    5. Bobby Jindal
    6. Kamala Harris
    7. Tulsi Gabbard
    8. Andrew Yang

    These above eight individuals have one or more of the three essential elements (1. Born in the U.S.A., 2. U.S. citizen father, 3. U.S. citizen mother) missing from their requirements which would deem them a natural born Citizen. These above eight individuals have allegedly defrauded the electorate, the U.S. Constitution, and the Federal Election Commission during the process of a Federal election.

    It is imperative that you immediately acknowledge my concern, immediately investigate the presidential campaigns of these eight individuals, and then you must take action against these allegedly fraud perpetrators committed against the U.S. Constitution and We The People during the election process in a Constitutionally-mandated election.

    Your immediate action is of the utmost importance to the preservation of this Constitutional Republic of the United States of America to right a Constitutional Crisis wrong caused by the alleged unconstitutional presidency of Barack HUSSEIN Obama.

    If no firm action is taken by your office on this matter to investigate these allegedly fraudulent presidential candidates, your inaction will be brought to the attention to an appropriate investigative element of the administrative office of the president of the United States of America – President Donald J. Trump.

    Thank you,
    Everett P. Rein
    Resident of Illinois and a natural born Citizen because I was born in the U.S.A. to parents who both were U.S. citizens of the U.S.A. at the time of my birth.

  2. Robert Laity,
    Thank you for never giving up. I contacted the Office of my Congressman Steve Womack with a 3 page letter on The Obama Fraud about a month ago. I was told when I called the office a couple of times that the chief of staff was preparing a reply and I would be getting it soon. Soon has not happened yet and I will call back tomorrow. I tried to word the letter so it would be difficult to just blow-off with a form letter….which has happened in the past. I’ll post whatever they send me here.
    I became unwelcome at the office about a year ago when I had repeated long conversations about Obama and how and why is a usurper…..and why he was/is so protected by members of Congress, both parties. These conversations were with a U.S. Marine Lt. Colonel who was stationed at the office…but has since transferred out. I have understood the basics of why they all protect Obama even though they know he is ineligible, an identity fraud and a con-artist, (actually because he is those things), all the way back until 2009 when I first started contacting them about Obama. I also know my reply will likely be the same BS I’ve received before…..but I can’t give up either. They have no reasonable defense for their inaction and are, as I have said many times, protecting themselves from the consequences of their actions and inaction with allowed The Obama Fraud to happen when Barack was sworn in back in 2009 and they are still covering for that violation of their sworn oath to protect the Constitution, among other things………

  3. CDR Kerchner, I have tried complaining to everyone and his uncle, including the FEC. No one seems to want to address this issue. President Trump’s son Don, Jr. has a copy of my book. I am not giving up. As the saying goes, this issue is a “tough nut to crack”. That said, one can use a razor blade to cut down a tree, if he or she is persistent enough. This issue has become my mission in life. What good is Article II if no one wants to enforce it?

  4. Since this issue involves election to a federal office, i.e., President, and is thus a federal election issue too, would it not make sense for a legal filing (about NY State erroneous statements about qualification for a federal elective office) to be made to the Federal Election Commission (FEC) and also possibly to Trump’s NY campaign office to get them involved, by Mr. Laity or some other legal resident of NY. Just a suggestion.

  5. The NY State Board of Elections has been deceiving “We the People” for over a decade. The nation has had two usurpers in 243 years. The first, in 1881 was Chester Arthur. The Second, Barack Obama, (127) years later started a runaway stream of ineligible frauds and usurpers of the Presidency. There have been no less the seven of them since 2008. Indeed, Congress has tried to erode the Natural Born Citizen criteria at least (8) times in the last couple of decades. These attempts failed in the Congress. Neither major party let that fact deter them from proffering candidates that are not eligible to be President and many of “we the people” were duped into believing that these usurpers were lawful candidates. They are not. It is every American’s duty as a citizen to prevent constitutionally ineligible persons to enter into the Office of the Presidency. I recall what Ted Cruz said in 2016. He said “If Obama can do it so can I”. He, as well as Obama know they are not eligible, as do many others.
