(May 13, 2015) — On Tuesday, the Lawyers Chapter of the Phoenix Federalist Society held a luncheon whose honored guest was U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Antonin Scalia, who was on a tour promoting his new book, Reading Law: The Interpretation of Legal Texts, co-authored with Bryan Garner.

Following the luncheon and Scalia’s address to the assembly, an individual calling himself “Patriotic Citizen TM” purchased a copy of the book, stood in line to have Scalia autograph it, and then seized on the opportunity to ask, “U.S. Constitution, Article 2, Section 1, Clause 5: Is it your understanding a ‘natural born Citizen’ is a person born in the U.S. to two US-citizen parents?”

Scalia then responded, “Uhh… Umm… Ahh… I have to research that.”

Message to Justice Scalia from CDR Kerchner (Ret)

Your feigning lack of knowledge of the meaning of “natural born Citizen” to the Patriotic Citizen who asked you that question, which is obvious by your hesitating response, is not fooling anyone.  I have seen you cite the writings of Emer de Vattel in cases at the U.S. Supreme Court.  As a self proclaimed “originalist” I believe you already know the original intent, true meaning, and understanding of who a “natural born Citizen” was and is per the founders and framers, i.e., a person born in the country to parents who are both citizens. You know the writings of Vattel inside and out and his influence on the founders and framers.  But if you need a refresher course “to research that”,  visit the site https://www.scribd.com/collections/3301209/Papers-Discussing-Natural-Born-Citizen-Meaning-to-Constitutional-Standards to help you get started with your research! You people at the U.S. Supreme Court need to stop “evading that question” and do your constitutional job.  CDR Kerchner (Ret) – http://www.ProtectOurLiberty.org

P.S. Also read this essay regarding the constitutional term in the presidential eligibility clause “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 … http://www.art2superpac.com/issues.html Also watch this video by the renowned constitutional scholar Dr. Herb Titus — Part I: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=esiZZ-1R7e8 and Part II: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xoaZ8WextxQ

  1. This is at least the second time Justice Scalia has feigned ignorance when asked a direct question person to person about the constitutional meaning of “natural born Citizen”. A blast from the past from 2012 — Scalia flummoxed about natural born citizenship: Exclusive: Larry Klayman asks justice for definition of term used in Constitution: http://www.wnd.com/2012/08/scalia-flummoxed-about-natural-born-citizenship/ I guess after two years have elapsed Justice Scalia is still “researching that”. Unbelievable what a disgrace our judicial system has become even at the highest levels. CDR Kerchner (Ret) – http://www.ProtectOurLiberty.org
