  • The Freedom Our Forefathers fought for must be protected.

    "Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free." - Ronald Reagan

Is Obama a Natural Born Citizen? No According to 1866 United States vs. Rhodes Case No. 16,151

Posted by rightwinger on November 25, 2008

If the US Supreme Court does not rule according to the Constitution, then a dangerous precedent will be set. A person with allegiance to a foreign country would be able to be the President of the United States.   Please sign this petition asking your representatives to pass a bill requiring any person that wants to run for the presidency to prove their natural born status up front and to pass a security clearance before being allowed to enter the race.

***Sign the Petition***

With this one case, we will see does the rule of law set forth by the US Constitution govern this great nation. Have we come so far as to dismiss its wisdom to allow liberal judges to legislate from the bench based on feelings?  Our founders put the requirement in Article II of the Constitution in order to protect this great nation from being weakened or attacked from within.  There is precedence in this case from a case in 1866 United States vs. Rhodes Case No. 16,151. This means that a natural born citizen has to be born in the US and both parents must be US citizens, otherwise the child would have dual citizenship and would be subject to a foreign power.

United States vs. Rhodes Case No. 16,151

That all persons born in the United States, and not subject to any foreign power, excluding Indians not taxed, are hereby declared to be citizens of the United States; and such citizens, of every race and color, without regard to any previous condition of slavery,”

Explanation from John C. Eastman, Ph.D:

The “subject to the jurisdiction” provision must therefore require something in addition to mere birth on U.S. soil. The language of the 1866 Civil Rights Act, from which the Citizenship Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment was derived, provides the key to its meaning. The 1866 Act provides: “All persons born in the United States, and not subject to any foreign power, excluding Indians not taxed, are hereby declared to be citizens of the United States.”[3] As this formulation makes clear, any child born on U.S. soil to parents who were temporary visitors to this country and who, as a result of the foreign citizenship of the child’s par­ents, remained a citizen or subject of the parents’ home country was not entitled to claim the birth­right citizenship provided by the 1866 Act.

Article II

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 following case is before the US Supreme Court challenging Obama’s natural citizenship

United States Supreme Court docket no. 08A407, Donofrio v. Wells, is now “Distributed for Conference of Dec. 5th, 2008″ to the full Court meeting in private on that date. The case was the subject of previous sabotage by SCOTUS stay clerk, Danny Bickell (as well as judicial misconduct by NJ Appellate Division Judge Jack M. Sabatino). Bickell, after receiving the emergency stay application which requested extraordinary relief to stay the national election, took it upon himself to deny the application on the very time sensitive date it was filed, Nov. 3, a day before the election day popular vote.

Barack Obama’s own web site is claiming that we had dual citizenship.  Because his father was Kenyan he was a British subject; therefore, Obama held a dual citizrnship of Us and British.  There are other factors was he indeed born on US soil and was his Mother a US citizen.  The laws were different when Obama was born.  It was not as simple as my Mom was born in America so I am a US citizen.  Barack Obama’s web site says the following:

“When Barack Obama Jr. was born on Aug. 4,1961, in Honolulu, Kenya was a British colony, still part of the United Kingdom’s dwindling empire. As a Kenyan native, Barack Obama Sr. was a British subject whose citizenship status was governed by The British Nationality Act of 1948. That same act governed the status of Obama Sr.‘s children.

Since Sen. Obama has neither renounced his U.S. citizenship nor sworn an oath of allegiance to Kenya, his Kenyan citizenship automatically expired on Aug. 4,1982.”

    The Supreme Court CANNOT DUCK Obama’s Birth Certificate Constitutional Crisis (albeit the media blackout on the issue). The messiah will NOT become President! This 90-minute blogradio program explains why:

    Why is this conference private? SCOTUS will discuss case law that is public information and should release at the very least a text of the conversations. I wonder what the procedure is after conference.

    When the constitution specifically says that only natural born citizens may qualify for the presidency, it explicitly means that there cannot be any encumbrances or circumstances, or qualifications AT THE TIME OF BIRTH. This brings up the universally accepted dogma that American born citizens
    may confer US citizenship to their children born in Japan, Germany, or any other foreign soil. All such children are US citizens. The converse is also true (unfortunately for Barack Obama). Any German parents born in Germany automatically will confer German citizenships to their children
    born on US soil. This rule has never been questioned. Barack Obama’s father, at the time of Barack’s birth on US soil conferred UK citizenship automatically.

    This is why no president (until now) has ever had one parent who was born in a foreign country.

    The natural born qualification is (in BHO’s case) is encumbered by the circumstance of blood relation to a foreign born parent at the time of his birth. You may not wait
    until you are 21 years of age to circumvent the conditions
    which existed at the time of your birth.

    It’s just a little too late to cry now, wouldn’t you agree? Razzle, dazzle is very poor criteria for a good president. For those of us not too naive to see the dark hole at the end of the election tunnel – well, get ready for a lot of “changes”, not necessarily the ones we heard a hundred times in the last two plus years. How many steps has the prez elect already taken backward on his promises and he’s not even sworn in yet! We can save America if we are willing to stand up and fight for it. But allowing globalism to envelop us, secretly in many situations, will only enslave us and our future generations.

    Dare we allow this?
