Natural born citizen status is inherited – it’s not bestowed by the Constitution or Acts of Congress

1. Neither Obama, Marco Rubio, or Ted Cruz are natural born citizens. At the times they were born, their Fathers were not citizens. Location of birth is irrelevant. Those who insist that a person must be born within the US point to Section 212 of Vattel.  But one must read all that Vattel wrote on the subject and which is contained in Sections 213-217.

A “natural born” citizen inherits his citizenship from his parents. Just as he inherits his eye and hair color from them, so he inherits his citizenship status. He is “born” with the hair and eye color his parents gave him, and he is “born” with the citizenship status they gave him. No provision in the Constitution made him a Citizen – no Act of Congress made him a Citizen – just as no provision in the Constitution or Act of Congress determined his eye or hair color. His citizenship, eye color, and hair color are all inherited from his parents. THAT’s what a natural born citizen is. READ all of the sections on this which Vattel wrote:  By the law of nature alone, children follow the condition of their fathers; the place of birth produces no change in this particular.   In my first paper, you can find the links to Vattel and other original source documents illustrating the original intent of “natural born citizen”.

You can argue this with cruzites all day long. In the end, they believe a criminal in the best choice for this country.

David, that is the best photo & caption -- the most fittingly appropriate -- photo to accompany an article I have ever seen.

You cannot just take part of what Vattel said. His entire message is important. Both parents AND place of birth are important and Vattel makes that clear by including both in his writings. James Madison recognized the importance of the place of birth when he said “It is an established maxim that birth is a criterion of allegiance. Birth however derives its force sometimes from place and sometimes from parentage, but in general place is the most certain criterion…”

If one is born in Canada or Germany or Australia of 2 U.S. citizen parents, there is a distinct possibility of allegiance to the place of birth and not to the parents’ place of birth.

Stanley Ann Dunham renounced her US citizenship while in Kenya. When she suddenly came back to the states it was presumed she may have been pregnant with Obama at the time. She wanted her us citizenship back but from the way I understand it she had not spent the requested number of years here before obama was born. So it doesn’t matter where he was born either. Appears neither of his parents were citizens.

Pardon me, but… just as in the days of Noah.

In times of deceit truth becomes revolutionary. For evil to prosper, none dare call it evil.

Either we are a nation of laws or lies but we can’t be both and be a great nation.

The lies and fraud perpetrated upon the American people must stop.

We have been skating on the coattails of CHRISTian men who established what is known as

Western Civilization for over 200 years now. The ‘rule of law’ for nearly 1,500 years has been

JEHOVAH’S Law in Western Civilization, not by chance, but because CHRISTian men

made it so. We are now witnessing the collapse of the ‘rule of law’ in our day. We can thank the pietists

and masters of deceit, in all their spiritual pride and gnostism, for it. The pietists and masters of

deceit hates JEHOVAH’S Law as much as the pagan. They have something they agree upon -- the

mutual hatred of JEHOVAH’S Law in society. The pagan hates it because of his rebellion. The pietest hates

it because of his religion. The result is a mutually assured destruction of the culture.

Just as in the days of Noah.

VERITAS vos LIBERABIT -- The TRUTH Shall Set You Free

CHRISTian men once understood this important matter. This is why The Law of JEHOVAH was the

“higher law” which all nations in western Civilization upheld and were accountable to for nearly

1,500 years. CHRISTians over the last 150 years however, have thrown the Law of JEHOVAH

under the bus, not taking a stand, forsaking their duty, and justify it all by glibly saying

“I expect sinners to act like sinners and we must not offend others by being to judgemental.”

The result has been the rule of law is crumbling in America and all of Western Civilization.

Beware of the masters of deceit within your circle.

“I desired to do thy good will, O my God: yea, thy Law is within mine heart.”

Psalm 40:8 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

To live at this time is an inestimable privilege, and a sacred obligation devolves

upon us to make right use of our duties to GOD, Family and Country.
