Why Obama is out

Kerchner Advertorial (click to open pdf)Natural Born Citizen, explained

by Mark Yannone

On Monday, July 6, The Washington Times carried a full-page "advertorial" written by Attorney Mario Apuzzo. Paid for by Charles F. Kerchner Jr., lead plaintiff in the active case of Kerchner et al v. Obama and Congress et al, the 1100-word document reveals the law that prohibits an Obama presidency.

"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."

"Natural born Citizen status requires not only birth on U.S. soil but also birth to parents who are both U.S. citizens by birth or naturalization."

The explanation and logic are clear and unmistakable, even to those who have difficulty setting aside their irrational emotions and manias. Only the ability to read English with moderate comprehension, and the willingness to do so, are required. Click the advertorial to read it.

The courts have already decided to ignore the law. Most of the country, and the world, have accepted this pretender. Just what can we do about it??

I'm not buying either premise. Stay tuned.

Anonymous is right. Where is the outrage in this pussy country. Everyone wants to bitch and no one wants to fight. So I say shut up about this and get on with being communists. The Fed has you controlled and you are funding your own slavery for the right to exist. any questions, get in touch with me and I'll answer anything you want to know about the planet you live on and why you can't and won't do anything about this.

"Natural born Citizen status requires not only birth on U.S. soil but also birth to parents who are both U.S. citizens by birth or naturalization."

I am unable to locate any Constitutional provision, federal statute or court precedent that establishes such a decision. Can you please provide a reference to such a source?

The PDF document makes reference only to one court ruling, US v. Kuhn, however this ruling makes no statement regarding the definition of "natural born" as it relates to the status of United States citizenship. The document makes no reference to any other court decision where the term is defined, nor is any reference either to Constitutional provision nor federal statute provided. As such, the claim remains unsubstantiated.

Until and unless a reference to a court precedent, federal statute or Constitutional provision is provided that corroborates the asserted definition of "natural born" as stated in the document, such a definition has no legal basis and is not just grounds for arguing that Mr. Obama is not a "natural born" citizen and thus ineligible for the United States presidency.

Keep reading. The original intent of the founders weighs heavily.

I posted a video to help explain Obama's ineligibility.

The quo warranto actions are also in the pipeline. The legal brief in three sections will go into the legal background much further.


Perhaps this will help.

The only thing the video "explains" is that Obama jr. could have dual citizenship (you've heard of that, right?). Just because one country considers you a native has no bearing on what another country will consider you.

For example, on German citizenship:
"People born to a parent who was a German citizen at the time of birth are usually German citizens on that basis. It does not matter whether they were born in Germany or not. Nor does it matter if the parent is a naturalised German."

Technically if one is born in the US to parents with German citizenship, the child would be considered a citizen in Germany, but could also be considered a US born citizen.

The same thing happens with US/Canadians. The person has to choose which citizenship he/she wants by the age of 18.

Dimensio, Stephen Tonchen's digest of attorney Leo Donofrio's research more fully explains Constitutional principles and court decisions and precedents.

The subject suffers from complexity, and many casual observers oversimplify what they have not studied unto comprehension. You will say, "I know what citizenship and eligibility for office mean." But the majority of the people don't, just as they don't know that the President is elected by the Electoral College, or that Dick Cheney was the Vice President under Pres. George W. Bush.

For example, a citizen is a person born in the United States and subject to U.S. jurisdiction (political loyalty, which excludes diplomats and Native Americans), OR a person born to a father who is a U.S. citizen. With women's suffrage and increasing independence from husbands, the second category has expanded to a person born to a mother who is a U.S. citizen.

In contrast, a natural born citizen is one born in the United States (ius soli) to U.S. citizen parents (ius sanguinis). To be a natural born citizen is required only for the office of the President (and by extension, for the purpose of the line of succession, the Vice President, in case of the resignation, incapacity, death, or impeachment of the President).

Concerning eligibility, a U.S. Senator must be a U.S. citizen - by birth in the U.S. or to U.S. parents, or by naturalization - have resided in the U.S. for nine years, and be at least 30 years of age. For the sake of seniority, there is no requirement that a Senator must be of sound mind and not senile. Actually, there is no requirement that a Senator have a pulse, although it would help, in case he needed to cast a vote.

A U.S. President must be a U.S. citizen, and also be a natural born citizen. To be a citizen is not enough; he must be a natural born citizen to be eligible for the office of President. He must also be at least 35 years of age and a resident of the U.S. for fourteen years.

There are numerous such distinctions upon which this issue hinges. Although the downstream media have convinced the sheeple that the details don't matter - and indeed, that the Constitution doesn't matter - those very Constitutional rules and restraints are the first line of defense against a few hundred enemies of freedom hijacking the ship of state and turning the U.S. into a totalitarian oligarchy and a police state.

And no, we're not already there. It may be too late to turn the ship around, but there may still be time to keep pirates from scuttling the ship or running her aground.

@ Lewie

Those who choose their citizenship are US citizens, not natural born US citizens.
