Their Words Were Clear | by Don Fredrick
“In the daily updates of The Obama Timeline I sometimes address Obama’s ineligibility to serve as president because he is not a “natural born citizen”—a term that historically has meant birth on U.S. soil to two U.S. citizen parents. I recently received an email from an Obama defender who wrote, “…lots of scholars and judges are divided as to the meaning in the minds of the founders when the phrase ‘natural born’ was used in the Constitution.”
They should not be divided.
The words of Emerich de Vattel were clear in his 1758 book, The Law of Nations:
“…natural born citizens, are those born in the country, of parents who are citizens.”
Vattel’s book was extensively relied upon by the Founding Fathers. (In fact, The Law of Nations was one of the books Washington infamously neglected to return to the New York Society Library, the public library located in the same building as his office.)
The words of John Jay—who later became the first Chief Justice of the Supreme Court—were clear when he wrote to George Washington on July 25, 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 Command in chief of the American army shall not be given to, nor devolve on, any but a natural born citizen.”
Jay was aware that the draft of the Constitution required only that the president must be a “born Citizen.” He was concerned that a person born in the United States to non-citizen parents would be more likely to have “divided loyalties” than someone born in the United States to parents who were also U.S. citizens. In other words, a “natural born citizen” would be further removed ideologically and culturally from the country of his ancestors than a mere citizen. Two days after Washington received Jay’s letter, the text of the U.S. Constitution was changed. The requirement that the president be a “born Citizen” (born on U.S. soil) was made more strict. The president must instead be a “natural born Citizen” (born on U.S. soil to two U.S. citizen parents).
The words of David Ramsey, a South Carolina delegate to the Continental Congress and one of the first historians of the United States, were clear when he wrote that natural born citizens were children born in the United States of citizen parents, specifically:
“…those who have been born of citizens since the 4th of July, 1776.”

A warning from the past — some conspiracies are very real and are also large and well organized and in process for a long time. Such is the nature of Communist activities in the USA. The target of the seditious political conspiracy we are currently faced with is to destroy our U.S. Constitution, our Republic, our culture, and our military. Remember this quote from history: “We must now face the harsh truth that the objectives of communism are being steadily advanced because many of us do not recognize the means used to advance them. … The individual is handicapped by coming face to face with a Conspiracy so monstrous he cannot believe it exists. The American mind simply has not come to a realization of the evil which has been introduced into our midst.” Quote by: J. Edgar Hoover former FBI director. Source: Elks Magazine (August 1956).
Marxist/Communists are trained to lie. It’s their modus operandi to deceive their true objectives. Obama is not just a pathological liar, he’s an ideological liar: http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2013/12/obama_is_not_a_pathological_liar_he_is_an_ideological_liar.html

P.S. Also read this essay regarding the legal term of art “natural born Citizen” and basic logic, i.e., trees are plants but not all plants are trees. Natural born Citizens are a subset of “born Citizens (citizens at birth)” but not all “born Citizens (citizens at birth)” are “natural born Citizens”: https://cdrkerchner.wordpress.com/2012/06/20/of-natural-born-citizens-and-citizens-at-birth-and-basic-logic-trees-are-plants-but-not-all-plants-are-trees-natural-born-citizens-nbc-are-citizens-at-birth-cab-but-not-all-cab/ … AND … the Three Legged Stool Test for Natural Born Citizen https://cdrkerchner.wordpress.com/2013/11/15/the-three-legged-stool-test-analogy-for-natural-born-citizenship-of-the-united-states-to-constitutional-standards/ … AND … http://www.art2superpac.com/issues.html Also watch this video by the renowned constitutional scholar Dr. Herb Titus: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=esiZZ-1R7e8
