PA ATTORNEY KAREN L. KIEFER TODAY CHALLENGED IN COURT A
‘NOMINATION PETITION OBJECTION’ IN THE COMMONWEALTH COURT
OF PA IN HARRISBURG PA ON BEHALF OF ‘OBJECTORS’ CHARLES
KERCHNER AND DALE LAUDENSLAGER CHALLENGING THE BALLOT
ACCESS PETITION FOR CANDIDATE BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA
Objectors Charles Kerchner and Dale Laudenslager, concerned citizens of
Pennsylvania, residents of and duly registered members of the electorate, along with
their Attorney Karen L. Kiefer, brought a challenge at 10:00AM today, Thursday,
March 1st, in the Commonwealth Court of Pennsylvania in Harrisburg PA, seeking
a judgment to have Candidate Barack Hussein Obama’s nomination petition or
papers set aside due to his failure to meet the ‘natural born citizen’ constitutional
eligibility requirements of the office he seeks.
Charles Kerchner, the lead plaintiff/objector and a retired Navy Commander,
explained that after several years of research, it has been determined that
Candidate Obama is not eligible to hold the office of President and Commander-in-
Chief of the military because “he is not a natural-born citizen according to the U.S.
Constitution.” “We are a nation of immigrants but Candidate Obama’s father was
not one of them.” He said. “Until Candidate Obama came along, no President since
the founding generation has had a foreign-born father who never immigrated to the
USA.” Obama’s father was never a U.S. Citizen nor even wanted to be one and
returned to his native country of Kenya after a few years sojourning in the USA on
a student visa while attending college. Candidate Obama was born a British
Subject/Citizen via his foreign-national, non-U.S. Citizen father and a basic U.S.
Citizen via his mother and thus was born with dual-citizenship and not sole
allegiance at birth to the USA. A dual-citizen at birth is not a ‘natural born citizen
of the United States’ to constitutional standards.
A ‘natural born citizen’ is someone born in the country from parents that are both
U.S. Citizens (born or naturalized). The founders reasoned that unity of citizenship
and sole allegiance at birth to one nation and only one nation was a prerequisite to
the office of President and Commander-in-Chief. This requirement was entered
into the U.S. Constitution for national security reasons as a “strong check against
foreign influence” and allegiance claims via birth status on the person who would be
the Commander of our armies and the President, according to John Jay’s letter to
George Washington, the presiding officer of the Constitutional Convention in
Philadelphia PA in 1787. George Washington later became the first President
under the new Constitution. John Jay later became the first Chief Justice of the
U.S. Supreme Court under the new Constitution.
A ‘natural born citizen’ is a 2nd generation American via both parents, i.e., both
parents must be U.S. Citizens (born or naturalized in the parents’ case) when their
child is born in the USA. The office of President and Vice President are the only
elected offices in the USA which require under our Constitution that the person
must be a ‘natural born citizen’ to be eligible for those offices. A first generation
U.S. Citizen can hold any other elected office. But the person who would be
President and Commander of our armies, per the U.S. Constitution, must be a
natural born citizen, i.e., a 2nd generation U.S. Citizen via both parents when born
in the USA.
Pennsylvania was the keystone state in the birth of our Republic and the drafting of
the U.S. Constitution and other founding documents. Let not Pennsylvania be any
part of the death of our U.S. Constitution and Republic.
Obama slipped through the vetting system cracks as to his constitutional eligibility
in the 2008 primaries. But he will not be permitted to get by without being properly
vetted in the 2012 primaries as to his exact citizenship status and true legal identity.
