(Feb. 7, 2023) — A letter New York State citizen and registered voter Robert C. Laity wrote to Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy late last week alleging “usurpation by fraud” on the parts of Barack Hussein Obama and Kamala D. Harris has been sent to a number of elected officials, media outlets, grassroots organizations and private citizens as evidenced by emails forwarded to this writer by the author.

Having been galvanized to action when Obama launched his first presidential campaign in 2007-2008 amid rumors he was not born in the United States, the writer, Robert C. Laity, contends that neither Obama nor Harris meets the Article II, Section 1, clause 5 requirement for the president and vice president of “natural born Citizen.”

According to Obama’s mainstream life narrative, he was born in Honolulu, HI to a Kenyan father and American mother on August 4, 1961, rendering his father at the time a British citizen. Laity believes that “natural born Citizen” signifies, “a child born in the United States to two U.S.-citizen parents.”

Born in Oakland, CA in 1964, Harris’s parents at the time were not U.S. citizens. Research on the part of Twitter account-holder “@kancelkamalaappears to show that Harris’s mother, who passed away in 2009, never attained U.S. citizenship.

Her father, a retired Stanford University professor, states on his biography that he became an American citizen on an unidentified date. However, based on longstanding immigration law, he would not have been eligible to apply for citizenship until after he had resided in the United States as a “lawful permanent resident” for five years, which could not have occurred until well after his eldest daughter’s birth.

The entities Laity addressed in his email include the New York State Republican Party, the Geller Report, Congressman Brian Higgins, Eric Bolling of Newsmax, Sonoran News, the Citizens Commission on National Security (CCNS), Patriots Soapbox, New York State Assemblyman William Conrad, and others.

“In the past (14) years I have contacted several of the former Speakers of the House with the following information,” Laity wrote to newly-minted House Speaker McCarthy. “In 2008 Barack Obama usurped the Presidency, by fraud, during time of war. Barack Obama is not an Article II “Natural Born Citizen” and therefore was never eligible to be President of the United States.  Like Chester Arthur in 1881, Obama fraudulently attained to the Office of the Presidency. Chester Arthur attained to both the Vice-Presidency as well as the Presidency. These usurpations were illegal under both Article II and the 12th Amendment.”

The ratification of the 12th Amendment in 1804 required that the vice president meet all of the qualifications of the president.

Since 2009, Laity has filed numerous legal actions challenging Obama’s and others’ eligibility to serve as president or seek the office, Each time, the relevant court dismissed the case without reaching the merits of his claims, the U.S. Supreme Court being no exception.

In 2016, the New York State Board of Elections (NYSBOE) ruled that Laity’s objection to the placement of Sens. Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio and former Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal’s names on the New York State Republican primary ballot “raises issues which are beyond the ministerial scope” of the Board. As with Obama and Harris, Laity contended that Cruz, who was born in Canada to a non-U.S.-citizen father and U.S.-citizen mother who may or may not have taken Canadian citizenship; Rubio, born in Florida to two legal U.S. residents but not citizens; and Jindal, born in Louisiana to parents present in the U.S. on education visas, are ineligible to serve.

As Laity noted and also challenged, the NYSBOE has not addressed its inaccurate expression of the Article II presidential requirement as “born a citizen” rather than “natural born Citizen.”

In December 2021, Laity completed a letter-writing campaign to all 535 members of Congress requesting that a constitutional amendment be introduced to define “natural born Citizen,” an issue which in 2010 U.S. Supreme Court Clarence Thomas acknowledged, albeit in a jocose fashion, the court was “evading.”

Referring to the Presidential Succession Act of 1947, Laity concluded his letter to McCarthy with, “I further believe that these facts make YOU the actual President of the United States at this time.”

“Please read my enclosed book ‘Imposters in the Oval Office’, iUniverse Publishing ©2018,” he added. “I hope that you will take this information very seriously. Our nation’s very existence demands immediate attention to this matter of very grave national security.”

Out of more than a dozen recipients of Laity’s email containing the link to the published letter, he received a response from Conrad, representing New York’s 140th district and Laity specifically; and “Deacon” at the Rumble channel PatriotsSoapbox, who wrote that the letter will be discussed between Tuesday and Thursday on the 24-hour program.

Conrad’s reply email reads:

Dear Constituent:

Thank you for your email. As your State Assembly representative in the 140th District, I commit time and attention to any correspondence I receive from a district resident.

But as you might guess, our office hears from many people every day, which can make it difficult to reply immediately. We will be in touch as soon as possible.

In the meantime, you may call our office at (716) 873-2540.


Bill Conrad
Member of the Assembly

The Post & Email has contacted “Deacon” of Patriots Soapbox for more detail as to when Laity’s letter will be discussed.

Update, 2:01 p.m.: On Tuesday afternoon, we received the following from Randall Brink of Patriots Soapbox:

I am very pleased to see that you are giving this matter some long-overdue attention in the media.

At present, I have no specific scheduling plans, however, I am working to get this issue much wider attention among people who care, or claim to care, about the U.S. Constitution. The subject situation is a direct threat to the security and sovereignty of the USA, and one that the founders specifically sought to obviate through the “Natural Born Citizen requirement. I will keep you copied on developments.

  1. Appreciate the letter and your work Robert. The natural-born citizen clause is viewed by the RNC that I deal with locally as a non-important part of an election. Given that, I continue to source more information that bolsters the Law of Nations’ written definition of a natural-born citizen ” In fact, the Georgetown Law Journal” issued a study referencing the Law of Nations and its influence in crafting of the US Constitution. The following is the synopsis. *
    The Law of Nations and the Crafting of the Constitution
    Finally, in Part III, we turn to the handful of early Supreme Court decisions that Professors Bellia and Clark marshal on behalf of their theory that the Constitution directed the courts to apply the law of nations as a means of defending the federal political branches’ discretion in foreign affairs. The paucity of evidence they cite in support of their theory is, in itself, surprising. More importantly, a close reading of these cases suggests a more straightforward conclusion: the courts believed they were duty-bound to apply the law of nations in cases in which it supplied the relevant rule of decision because the law of nations was the law of the land.10

    In section 212, Vatel wrote. “The natives, or natural-born citizens, are the children born of parents, who are citizens, in the country.”

    1. Thank you for the link to the Georgetown Law Journal. In the broader scope of established constitutional law on this subject I can assure you that a “natural born citizen” of the U.S. IS incontrovertibly “one born in the United States to parents who are both U.S. Citizens themselves”.

  2. I’ve been following this issue over 0bama’s birth narrative since he came on the scene to run for POTUS. IMO it is a waste of time to pursue the natural born citizen angle as many weigh in to split hairs on what is or isn’t a NBC & to litigate it in our corrupt legal system. The tactic to expose the usurper is to go after the true CRIME – the forged bc. All the heavy lifting has been done by Mike Zullo & the cold case posse. Barry & his team committed a crime, go after that & the rest will come out.

    1. Of course this issue can and should be pursued on various “angle[s]”. No one is “splitting hairs” with regard to what an NBC is. It has long been legally established law that an NBC IS “One born IN the United States to parents who are BOTH US Citizens themselves”. There are at least SEVEN US Supreme Court opinions that I and others have cited in their respective law briefs that affirm this fact.

      What makes you think that “in our corrupt legal system” that you or anyone else would fare any better by “go[ing] after…the forged BC” or that no one has tried that already?

      The trick is to KEEP pursuing the issue using any “angle” one can. Obama committed usurpation, treason, espionage and fraud. During a time of war no less. The courts have yet to remedy that fact. That means the courts are equallly responsible for the onslaught on this nation by traitors intent to destroy America.

  3. The eight attempts at subverting the article ii natural born citizen clause outlined in the famous YouTube video by Pastor Carl Gallups titled ‘Illegal Obama Propped Up By Congress’ show clearly that there has been an orchestrated effort at penetrating the hull, if I may speak in a literary voice metaphorically, of the namesake of Old Ironsides, the Constitution, by way of divesting that one small part of the document, the article ii natural born citizen clause, of its authority.
    At present, the authority of the article ii natural born citizen clause being the law is simply ignored by America’s elected representatives, by the Fake News propagandists who call themselves journalists, by the judicial system–even by conservatives who claim to be defenders of the Constitution like Atty. Jay Seckulow.
    But if we are to permit our representatives in government to pick and choose arbitrarily what articles within the Constitution and what amendments to it shall be respected as the law and what other parts they can discard at will, then we are not a nation under the rule of law, but a nation under the rule of men who have elevated themselves above the law to be the law.
    Such a situation where certain self-aggrandizing elitists, (believing themselves to be as gods), capriciously dictate what the rest of society shall regard as the law, (what is right and what is wrong, what is good and what is evil, what shall be legal and what illegal), throughout history has been known as tyranny of one form or another and those who assume the authority to do the dictating known as tyrants and dictators.
    The article ii natural born citizen clause is still in the Constitution.
    But, to be sure, that plank in the side of the hull of the American ship of state was penetrated by the Manchurian Muslim from Mombasa, Barack Hussein, or as his mother listed his name in one of her U.S. passports as ‘Soebarkah.’
    Now we have Kamala as vice-president who, like Barry, is not an article ii eligible to be the legal sitting POTUS natural born citizen of the United States.
    How soon both major political parties have forgotten that for Song Bird John McCain to become the republican party’s nominee for president the senate had to pass Senate Resolution 511 because the traitor John McCain was born in Panama off base from where his parents were serving in the Panama Canal Zone.
    There was a tremendous falling out between two of the front line warriors in the battle in defense of the article ii natural born citizen clause in the Constitution: The commander of former Maricopa County Arizona sheriff Joe Arpaio’s volunteer Cold Case Posse and former detective Mike Zullo and Pastor Carl Gallups over the love of money and morality. For those of us who followed the story it was heartbreaking to see the two men have such a falling out, and it seemed at that point that the battle was lost.
    But all is not yet lost.
    There is still hope. In God we trust.
    Perhaps Donald Trump will serve another term as president and the legal meaning of the article ii natural born citizen clause in the Constitution can be addressed by his attorney general so that people like Tulsi Gabbard, Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, Kamala Harris, and Nikki Haley will not even attempt to illegally occupy the office of POTUS as did Barack Hussein Osama…, I mean Obama.

  4. Pursuant to officially certified documents from Stephanie Bayless, Director of the National Archives and Records Administration of the United States, which I have sent to Sharon, Donald J. Harris applied for U.S. Citizenship to the U.S.D.C. in San Jose, California, in 1981 ,took his oath of allegiance to the U.S and his certificate of U.S. Citizenship #11330925, List # 372 , Record Group 21 USDC-NDC ,Box 24, Petition # 9268 was issued on October 26th,1981.

    Kamala Harris’ parents were NOT BOTH U.S. Citizens when she was born.

    1. I believe Obama told Joe Biden to pick Kamala Harris for his V.P. primarily because she is not eligible. Obama probably believes the more ineligible people who usurp offices they are not eligible to hold the less likely it becomes that anything will ever be done about Obama’s ineligibility and usurpation. Media lies and fear of being called racist allowed the ineligible Obama to be sworn-in by John Roberts, who knows Obama is ineligible, and once sworn-in no one complicit in Obama’s usurpation, (the Uniparty), was going to speak-up because they had already committed treason and violated their sworn oath to protect the Constitution…..Also, members of Congress were told what to say and believe by people heavily involved in The Obama Fraud. Exhibit “A” is Nancy Pelosi who asked the Congressional Research Service to provide a document to Congress “proving” Obama was eligible so Congress members would tell there constituents the same lies…………The CRS works for Congress and after several revisions gave Congressional leadership what they wanted. Most members of Congress just did what they were told to do. The few who did not were punished and then joined the others in only saying what they are told they can say………………..The crime of giving America’s government and her military to her enemies is huge (treason) and the cover-up is supposed to last forever. Hillary, the planned and promised in 2008 after Obama cover was not supposed to lose, and certainly not to Donald Trump…….
