American Thinker has generally produced well researched and interesting articles that I enjoy very much. But they fail, like so many others, in discussing the most pressing issue of our day: the invasion of the White House by the foreign usurper, Obama. This author has repeatedly submitted articles to the American Thinker on the subject of Barack Obama’s failure to meet the constitutional requirements for the Presidency articulated in Article II of the Constitution. American Thinker has refused to publish not only mine but many articles on this subject, presumably because they either don’t see a problem or have been directed to not publish anything of substance. Recently AT allowed two articles to discuss Obama’s ‘birth certificate’, notice not eligibility. Both articles fall woefully short of informing their readers of the true seriousness of this issue.
The American Thinker’s satire and ludicrous analyses aside, the failure of the media and others to acknowledge that Barack Hussein Obama is not a natural born citizen eligible to the Presidency under Article II, Section I, Clause 5 of the Constitution is one of the most serious breaches of the Constitution in United States history. We do ourselves, America, and our future generations no favor by satirizing, ignoring, or being afraid to address this issue.
Donald Trump’s release of his Birth Certificate, and the ‘media’s’ immediate questioning of Trump’s mother’s birth outside the U.S. demonstrates unequivocally that the media knows full well what a ‘natural born citizen’ is. Trump masterfully produced his mother’s naturalization papers the next day proving that both his parents were U.S. citizens at the time of his birth. Now that Mr. Trump has broken the ice jam and has forcefully brought this issue into the public view, it may be useful to review the basic problems of Mr. Obama’s citizenship that have caused 91% of Americans to doubt his birth story.
- Fact. The Constitution requires that the President be a natural born Citizen, which is not the same as a Citizen under the Fourteenth Amendment. The term ‘natural born’ Citizen is a national security safeguard to ensure that the Commander-in-Chief of the U.S. Armed Forces does not have dual or multiple allegiances. If the Founders had thought a ‘Citizen’ was sufficient for the Presidency, the words ‘natural born’ would not have preceded the word ‘Citizen’ in 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
- Fact. The natural born citizenship clause of the Constitution requires both parents to be American citizens at the time of a child’s birth in order for that child to be eligible for the Presidency. Mr. Obama has already admitted that at birth he had dual citizenship from his father, a British subject, and his mother, an American citizen. This is irrespective of birth place. A dual citizens’ allegiance is inherently divided. The Constitution requires singular allegiance to the United States at birth.
- Fact. Mr. Obama admits he was adopted by an Indonesian national and became an Indonesian citizen in order to attend school there. No record exists as to whether Mr. Obama renounced this Indonesian citizenship or was naturalized as an American citizen when he returned to the United States. Even if he did renounce his Indonesian citizenship, Mr. Obama fails the singular allegiance test of the Constitution as a result of his dual allegiance at birth. As further disqualification then, Mr. Obama has multiple citizenships: British, Kenyan, Indonesian, with his American citizenship confirmed as soon as he releases his naturalization papers. The Constitution requires singular allegiance to the United States. A Citizen of the United States by naturalization is not a natural born citizen.
- Fact. The Fourteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution establishes the conditions for U.S. citizenship but not ‘natural born’ citizenship. Fourteenth Amendment citizens are not natural born citizens. The Fourteenth Amendment did not modify, replace, or change Article II, Section I, Clause 5 of the Constitution.
Without mentioning the ‘birth certificate’ at all, Mr. Obama fails to qualify for the Presidency under Article II, and fails the tests of the Twelfth, Twentieth, and Twenty Fifth Amendments of the Constitution.
Under any of these provisions of the Constitution, Obama can be relieved from duty with an orderly succession of officers that ensures the continuity of government.
Its time to act, not avoid. And its time for the American Thinker to grow an editorial spine and seriously address this issue.
