Since the subject seems to be coming back into the light in the mainstream media and since it is next on the docket to cover, let’s dive into Article II of the Constitution.
Article II of the Constitution pertains to the Executive Branch ( the Office of the President ) and it very clearly lays out the qualifications a person must meet to attain this office as well as the duties of the executive branch.
The highest and most important duty the President must perform is to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States. But what would happen if the president did not meet those qualifications and and we also suddenly found ourselves with a rouge Congress running amuck such as we are today? Could the two be connected?
I have thus far refrained from posting about the eligibilty issue here, but the time has come to put the educational material out there for all to learn and know exactly what the framers meant when they drafted Article II of the Constitution.
Clause 1: The executive Power shall be vested in a President of the United States of America.
Clause 5: 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.
Clause 8: Before he enter on the Execution of his Office, he shall take the following Oath or Affirmation:–“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”
Clause 1: The President shall be Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy of the United States, and of the Militia of the several States, when called into the actual Service of the United States; he may require the Opinion, in writing, of the principal Officer in each of the executive Departments, upon any Subject relating to the Duties of their respective Offices, and he shall have Power to grant Reprieves and Pardons for Offences against the United States, except in Cases of Impeachment.
Clause 2: He shall have Power, by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, to make Treaties, provided two thirds of the Senators present concur; and he shall nominate, and by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, shall appoint Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls, Judges of the supreme Court, and all other Officers of the United States, whose Appointments are not herein otherwise provided for, and which shall be established by Law: but the Congress may by Law vest the Appointment of such inferior Officers, as they think proper, in the President alone, in the Courts of Law, or in the Heads of Departments.
Clause 3: The President shall have Power to fill up all Vacancies that may happen during the Recess of the Senate, by granting Commissions which shall expire at the End of their next Session.
He shall from time to time give to the Congress Information of the State of the Union, and recommend to their Consideration such Measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient; he may, on extraordinary Occasions, convene both Houses, or either of them, and in Case of Disagreement between them, with Respect to the Time of Adjournment, he may adjourn them to such Time as he shall think proper; he shall receive Ambassadors and other public Ministers; he shall take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed, and shall Commission all the Officers of the United States.
The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.
Let’s start withSection1, “Clause 5” of the Constitution. It clearly says no person except a “Natural Born” citizen or a citizen “AT THE TIME OF THE ADOPTION” of the Constitution shall be eligible to hold the office of the president. What we know is that at this date and time there is absolutely “NO” person still alive that was a citizen at the time of the adoption of the Constitution, so that leaves us with one who MUST be a “Natural Born” citizen. But what is that exactly? Is it just a regular citizen under the 14th amendment? The answer is “ABSOLUTELY NO”. The 14th amendment was adopted to allow citizenship to children born on US soil to immigrants parent/parents(those not yet attaining their citizenship). So, while people who fall under the 14th amendment are rightfully citizens, they can never be a “Natural Born” citizen.
Take the word “natural”, it is self explanitory. Nature does not need a law or amendment to determine it status. It just “IS”. When we take that context and apply it to Article II, Clause 5, we know that a “Natural Born” citizen is born of the soil to parents(plural) who are US citizens. The child needs no law or amendment to determine his/her citizenship, it just “IS” as “Nature” intended according to the laws of nature.

Book 1, Chapter 19
Of Our Native Country, and Several Things that Relate to it
212. Citizens and natives.
The citizens are the members of the society, bound to this society by certain duties, and subject to its authority, they equally participate in its advantages. The natives, or natural-born citizens, are those born in the country, of parents who are citizens. (Emphasis “parents” is plural)As the society cannot exist and perpetuate itself otherwise than by the childhood of children of the citizens, those children naturally follow the condition of their fathers, and succeed to all their rights. The society is supposed to desire this, in consequence of what it owes to its own preservation; and it is presumed, as matter of course, that each citizen, on entering into society, reserves to his children the right of becoming members of it. The country of the fathers is therefore that of the children; and these become true citizens merely by their tacit consent. We shall soon see whether, on their coming to the years of discretion, they may renounce their right, and what they owe to the society in which they were born. I say, that, in order to be of the country, it is necessary that a person be born to a father who is a citizen; for, if he is born there of a foreigner, it will be only the place of his birth, and not his country.
Congressman Bingham, the author of the 14th Amendment said this of the meaning of “Natural Born Citizen”: “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)
Thus we now know the “intent” of the framers and so we know a president must be one born to parents(both) who are US citizens. But why such strict eligibility for the president? For that we must go back to the Federalist Papers and the letters written between the framers at the time of the 1st Continental Congress. John Jay, the 1st Chief Justice of the NY Supreme Court and President of the Continental Congress wrote the following in a letter to George Washington on July 23, 1787:
“Permit me to hint, whether it would be wise and seasonable to provide a strong check to the admission of Foreigners into the administration of our national Government; and to declare expressly that the Commander in Chief of the American army shall not be given to nor devolve on, any but a natural born Citizen.”
There was no debate, thus the “natural born” qualification for the office of president was introduced, drafted and then adopted unanimously. Further examination from 1880 and 1885:
The constitutional requirement for the President of the United States to be a natural-born citizen had one purpose according to St. George Tucker:
That provision in the constitution which requires that the president shall be a native-born citizen (unless he were a citizen of the United States when the constitution was adopted,) is a happy means of security against foreign influence, which, wherever it is capable of being exerted, is to he dreaded more than the plague. The admission of foreigners into our councils, consequently, cannot be too much guarded against; their total exclusion from a station to which foreign nations have been accustomed to, attach ideas of sovereign power, sacredness of character, and hereditary right, is a measure of the most consummate policy and wisdom. … The title of king, prince, emperor, or czar, without the smallest addition to his powers, would have rendered him a member of the fraternity of crowned heads: their common cause has more than once threatened the desolation of Europe. To have added a member to this sacred family in America, would have invited and perpetuated among us all the evils of Pandora’s Box.
Additionally, Charles Pinckney in 1800 said the presidential eligibility clause was designed “to insure … attachment to the country.”
What better way to insure attachment to the country then to require the President to have inherited his American citizenship through his American father and not through a foreign father. Any child can be born anywhere in the country and removed by their father to be raised in his native country. The risks would be for the child to return in later life to reside in this country bringing with him foreign influences and intrigues.
Therefore, we can say with confidence that a natural born citizen of the United States is one who is born on US soil to PARENTS(both) who are US citizens, thus knowing that the child would not owe allegiance to any country other than that of the United States of America and that no other country could ever claim jurisdiction over the child.
In conclusion on Section 1, Clause 5, we are left with the irrefutable “FACT” that Barack H Obamacould NEVER be a “Natural Born” citizen and thus he should have “NEVER” attained the office of the president and he is a usurper and he eventually will be removed. As a usurper, every bill he signs, every order he gives will be voided as never happening once justice has been served for the citizens of the United States. The election will be voided and we will begin anew and much wiser as to what a rouge government can accomplish when left to rule outside the LAWS of the land.
Now let us move on to probably the most important of all duties of the president under “Section 2, Clause 1” of Article II of the Constitution:
“The President shall be Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy of the United States, and of the Militia of the several States, when called into the actual Service of the United States”.
I ask how can we have a president who blatently ignored the law and did not due his duty to register for the Selective Service? When BHO aka BS turned 18, instead of signing up, he disregarded it, then when the issue came up in the fall of 2007, those who tried to FOIA his records, were persistantly put off saying there was some problem and then when the record finally was released in Oct of 2008 it is an obvious forgery. Now had he left it alone and just owned up to it, the statute of limitaions had run out and thus no criminal case could have been brought, but it would have reflected negatively on his campaign, especially since we are in a time of war. But since the forgery took place, this crime is a Federal Felony Offense and cause for impeachment which takes us into Section 4 of Article II of the Constitution:
“The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors”.
Not only do we have a usurper who has committed a federal crime pertaining to his military duty/obligation, we also have one who has committed another felony when he withheld information on his Illinois Bar Association application that was required by law for him to release. A usurper who repeatedly traveled on an Indonesian passport and the “FACT” is, is that there is absolutely “NO” record of him even having a US passport until he was issued a special US GOVT one when he entered the US Senate.
So while our country is being robbed of it’s sovereignty and raped of it’s morals and values for their “GLOBAL” agenda, I leave you to hear what the MSM(main steam media) has to say on this. My answer to them is:
“When we all have been stripped of our 1st Amendment rights, we will have only “YOU” to blame for not doing your duty under the 1st Amendment and vetting this guy as you should have. So QUIT screaming and crying, I DO NOT FEEL SORRY FOR YOU, especially the so called conservatives like Hannity!!!”
Hannity, you think/believe he is American? How about doing your job so the ENTIRE nation can know he is “NOT” a “natural born” citizen and in all probability not even a US Citizen. Since there are no records of him denouncing his Indonesian citizenship and going through the naturalization process which would have been required when he came back from Indonesia or when he turned 18 and he was still under Kenyan citizenship also, just what citizenship does this guy hold?!?!?!”
You can see supporting documents and research which I have been doing for nearly a year now in the BOX.NET widget in the left column of the main page. The main compilation is titled”Dear Sen. Johnson”. It is a word document and in it you will find a more detailed report as to Article II, the 14th Amendment and other compelling evidence that shows that I am not a nut job, just a very responsible concerned “Natural Born” US Citizen who is worried about enemies of our country, both foreign & “DOMESTIC”.
Psalm 144 : 11-15
Rescue me and deliver me from the hand of foreigners,
Whose mouth speaks lying words,
And whose right hand is a right hand of falsehood—
That our sons may be as plants grown up in their youth;
That our daughters may be as pillars,
Sculptured in palace style;
That our barns may be full,
Supplying all kinds of produce;
That our sheep may bring forth thousands
And ten thousands in our fields;
That our oxen may be well laden;
That there be no breaking in or going out;
That there be no outcry in our streets.
Happy are the people who are in such a state;
Happy are the people whose God is the LORD!
