His mother, Stanley Ann Dunham, certainly was a US citizen at the time of his birth, but his father, Barack Hussein Obama Sr, certainly was not.
And that's the crucial difference.
A presidential candidate must have two citizen parents at the time of birth to be eligible to be POTUS or VPOTUS. Several USSC cases confirm this rule. The crucial fact is that according to the men who wrote the 14th amendment, the Kenyan Marxist Fascist isn’t even a citizen either. Here’s why: By Obama’s own admission his father was a citizen of The United Kingdom (Kenya – once it became independant) and was a citizen of Great Britian/Kenya. Obama also admits that he (himself) was likewise a citizen of Great Britian – due to the fact that British law governed the status of Obama Sr’s offspring. As the leftist website FactCheck.org noted:
“When Barack Obama jr was born on August 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. The same act governed the status of Obama Sr.’s children.”
Thus far we know – without doubt – that Obama was a citizen of Great Britian/Kenya at birth. We also know that Obama was registered as a citizen of Indonesia (per school records in Indonesia). We also know that Obama was mentioned in the divorce records (Soetoro – Dunhan) – which strongly indicates his official adoption by Lolo Soetoro. Thus we know Obama is/was a citizen of Kenya and a citizen of Indonesia. If we look to the expressed intent of those men who authored the 14th Amendment – we can see why there is doubt about Obama’s US citizenship (even if we assume he was born in Hawaii). John Bingham – aka, the father of the 14th – had this to say:
“All from other lands, who by the terms of [congressional] laws and a compliance with their provisions become naturalized, are adopted citizens of the United States; all other persons born within the Republic, of parents owing allegiance to no other sovereignty, are natural born citizens. Gentleman can find no exception to this statement touching natural-born citizens except what is said in the Constitution relating to Indians.” (Cong. Globe, 37th, 2nd Sess., 1639 (1862))
“Every human being born within the jurisdiction of the United States of parents not owing allegiance to any foreign sovereignty is, in the language of your Constitution itself, a natural born citizen.” (Cong. Globe, 39th, 1st Sess., 1291 (1866))
Senator Howard – Bingham’s Senate counterpart – had this to say:
“The first amendment is to section one, declaring that all “persons born in the United States and Subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the States wherein they reside. I do not propose to say anything on that subject except that the question of citizenship has been fully discussed in this body as not to need any further elucidation, in my opinion. This amendment which I have offered is simply declaratory of what I regard as the law of the land already, that every person born within the limits of the United States, and subject to their jurisdiction, is by virtue of natural law and national law a citizen of the United States. This will not, of course, include persons born in the United States who are foreigners, aliens, who belong to the families of ambassadors or foreign ministers accredited to the Government of the United States, but will include every other class of persons." (Congressional Globe, 39th Congress pg. 2890 (1866))
“That means ‘subject to the complete jurisdiction thereof.’ What do we mean by ‘complete jurisdiction thereof? Not owing allegiance to anybody else. That is what it means.” (Congressional Globe, 39th Congress pg. 2893 (1866))
So according to the men who were directly responsible for the 14th Amendment – Obama isn’t even a US citizen by means of the fact that he owed, at birth, loyalty to another nation.
Note the fact that both men declared the fact that a natural born citizen is a person born of citizen parents, on US soil. Obama most definitely is not a natural born citizen – and according to the men who were directly responsible for the 14th Amendment, Obama isn’t a US citizen either.
Which means that he is an illegal president, and according to some legal scholars, every single executive act he has authorized could be set aside. Which means ObamaCare. Which means the appointment of the leftist Supreme Court Justices Sotomayor and Kagan.
Which means every freedom killing act he has perpetrated on this nation.
One can only hope.
