Birth Certificate

Obama releases his birth certificate.

So what?

It has never been an issue of where Obama was born. The key issue has always been where his father was born.

Article 2, section 1 of the Constitution states, "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 who shall not attained to the age of thirty-five years, and been fourteen years a resident within the United States."

Natural born citizen. OK, what's that?

When asked to define natural born citizen, John Bingham, the author of the 14th amendment which extended the bill of rights to former slaves, stated, "Any human born to parents who are US citizens and are under no other jurisdiction or authority." The Naturalization Act of 1790, also passed by this congress, declared "And the children of citizens of the US shall be considered as natural born, provided that the right of citizenship shall not descend to persons whose fathers have never been a resident of the US." Neither of these definitions, one from US law, mentions birthplace, only the parents' citizenship.

Barack Obama has proudly and publicly stated that his father was a citizen of Kenya. This fact alone makes Obama ineligible to be president.

No birth certificate is needed as proof. It doesn't matter at all where Obama was born. His father's non-citizenship is all the law requires. He was ineligible from the beginning, meaning he is not the president and can be removed from office without any impeachment or trial, it requires only a ruling by the SCOTUS.

Why is this restriction imposed only on the president? Because, above all others in office, the president must be the least likely to have any allegiances or alliances with foreign nations or groups.

-1) The Constitution requires that only a natural born citizen can be president.

-2) A natural born citizen is one whose parents were both citizens of the United States.

-3) Obama's father was not a citizen of the United States.

-4) If the Supreme Court decides to do it's clearly defined Constitutinal duty, they will remove Obama from office. If they don't, he stays in.

-5) End of story.

That would explain the $2,000,000 in legal fees keeping the birth certificate away from prying eyes.

I hope you're right about the Natural Born Citizen thing, it's a puzzle piece that fits perfectly.

Have you read the 14th amendment? What does it say?

I refered to the author of the 14th amendment, not the 14th amendment itself.

It is the Naturalization Act of 1970, passed by congress and signed into law, that states "... the children of citizens of the US shall be considered as natural born...".

Since Obama's Dad was not a citizen of the US, Obama is NOT a "natural born citizen" as required by the US Constitution to be president.
