“Cuban Citizen at Birth” Marco Rubio
Is NOT Constitutionally Eligible

A PETITION FROM THE UNDERSIGNED

Recognizing that Marco Rubio is NOT a “natural born Citizen” of the United States and is NOT constitutionally eligible to be President or Vice-President.

Whereas, as put into the Constitution of the United States in Article II Section 1 Clause 5 by our founding fathers and framers, it requires that to be eligible for the Office of the President and Commander in Chief of our military forces, a person alive at the time of the adoption of the Constitution had a “grandfather clause” therein, that said person only had to be a “Citizen” of the United States, but that in the future a person born after the adoption and ratification of our U.S. Constitution they had to be more than just a “Citizen” of the United States, but must be a “natural born Citizen” of the United States;

Whereas Marco Rubio was not alive at the time of the adoption of the U.S. Constitution and cannot avail himself of the “grandfather clause” therein available to only the original “Citizens” and therefore has to meet the more restrictive “natural born Citizen” clause;

Whereas the founders and framers considered in the summer of 1787 in an early draft of the Constitution to requiring the President to be simply only a “Citizen”, and then per Alexander Hamilton’s suggestions he proposed strengthening the requirement a bit more by requiring the person who would be a future President be “born a Citizen” for the presidential eligibility clause, the framers did not adopt either of those less restrictive citizenship terms as strong enough protection against “foreign influence”, but required instead at the written letter suggestion by John Jay (who became the 1st U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice) to George Washington that the future Presidents had to be a “natural born Citizen” to be the President and Commander in Chief as a “strong check” against “foreign influence” by birth upon a future President and Commander in Chief once the founding generation had passed;

Whereas the term “natural born Citizen”, as that term appears in Article II, Section 1, Clause 5 is not specifically defined in the Constitution of the United States (since the Constitution does not include a glossary but was written in commonly understood language of that time as was explained in the Federalist Papers using language and terms that were clearly understood by them and the people of the USA who were called upon to adopt and ratify it), and thus we must look elsewhere outside the Constitution to what the people of founding and framing era understood said “natural born Citizen” term to mean (as such direction to do so is mentioned in the U.S. Supreme Court Case of (1875) Minor v Happersett), in order to determine its “originalist” meaning to those that chose that term and those that voted for and adopted and ratified the U.S. Constitution;

Whereas the Laws of Nature and Natural Law as evidenced by the Preamble of our Declaration of Independence strongly influenced our revolution and break away from England and the writing of our founding documents;

Whereas, per the preeminent legal treatise much read by the founders and framers, the “Principles of Natural Law” by Emer de Vattel (1758/1775/1797) and the colonial common law familiar to the founders and framers, they and the people of the founding and framing era understood that a “natural born Citizen” was a person born in the country to parents who were BOTH Citizens (born or naturalized Citizens as long as they are both Citizens) of the country when their child was born in the country, and that term was chosen as a future national security clause as a “strong check” against “foreign influence” by or at birth on the person who would be eligible to be President and Commander in Chief of our military forces once the founding generation had passed;

Whereas that Natural Law definition provided by Vattel’s founding era legal treatise was cited in the U.S. Supreme Court “Venus” case decision of 1814 in the citizenship discussion in that case as the best on citizenship and was quoted in that case, and that a person born in the country to parents who were both citizens (born or naturalized) when their child was born in the country were the facts at birth conferring “natural born Citizenship” on a person was cited in several subsequent U.S. Supreme Court decisions including Perkins v Elg, 307, U.S. 325 (1939) when the citizenship status of a party to a case was a key matter in determining a case before that court;

Whereas while Marco Rubio was clearly and admittedly born in the United States, he was born to a non-U.S. Citizen (Cuban Citizen) alien father and a non-U.S. Citizen (Cuban Citizen) alien mother who were legally in the United States under work permit visas, he was thus not born a U.S. “Citizen” per Natural Law;

Whereas whiles Cuba is a neighboring country and diplomatic relationships are currently being restored with it, Cuba has in the past been a very hostile neighbor, Cuba is a foreign country and is not part of the United States or its territorial jurisdictions;

Whereas because Marco Rubio was born in the United States to non-U.S. Citizen Cuban parents, that said Marco Rubio was thus born with dual-Citizenship, i.e., a “Citizen” of the United States due to his place of birth in the USA under generally interpreted jus soli rulings of the U.S. Supreme Court re the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, he was also born with “Cuban Citizenship at Birth”, which he inherited from his Cuban father and mothervia jus sanguinis Laws of Nature and the Constitution and Laws of Cuba;

Whereas Marco Rubio was born a Citizen of two sovereign countries and thus has birth allegiance to two countries at birth, he was thus born with “foreign influence” upon himself via citizenship at birth of more than one country and thus he was born with dual foreign allegiances, and has divided allegiances and national loyalties at and by birth, exactly what the founders and framers did NOT want for the person who would be President and Commander in Chief of our military forces in the future after the founding generation, the original “Citizens”, had passed away;

Whereas even though under the Wong King Ark (1898) ruling of the U.S. Supreme Court and the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution Marco Rubio is generally considered by the general public to be a 14th Amendment “born Citizen” of the United States because he was born in the United States to alien parents legally in the United States under work permit visas, Marco Rubio is definitely NOT a constitutional Article II Section 1 Clause 5 “natural born Citizen” of the United States;

Whereas Congress under its powers granted to it in the U.S. Constitution in Article I and the U.S. Supreme Court in the powers granted to it in the U.S. Constitution in Article III can only make persons “Citizens” by their acts and rulings, either by the person’s place and status at birth or after birth, subject to certain precedent and subsequent conditions and actions required that may exist and are outlined in said laws and court rulings, and that any law or congressional act or constitutional amendment in effect at this time, which Marco Rubio may point to (past or present) to try and claim eligibility, that said law, court ruling, or constitutional amendment, can only make him a “Citizen” of the United States at birth and not a constitutional Article II “natural born Citizen” of the United States at birth. Adjectives mean something;

Therefore, be it declared by the undersigned;

That Marco Rubio is NOT a “natural born Citizen” under Article II, Section 1, Clause 5 of the Constitution of the United States and is NOT constitutionally eligible to be President or Vice-President.

Ted Cruz Fails Three Legged Stool Test – Ted Cruz is Missing Two Legs! – He Cannot Constitutionally Stand for Pres or VP – The Three Legged Stool Test for “natural born Citizen” – Cruz is “A Bridge Too Far”

Ted Cruz Fails Three Legged Stool Test for “Natural Born Citizen“.  He Cannot Constitutionally Stand for President or VP.  Ted Cruz is Missing Two Legs! – The Three Legged Stool Test & Analogy for “natural born Citizen” of the United States to Constitutional Standards as It Applies to Who Can be President and Commander-in-Chief of Our Military.

Ted Cruz was born in Canada (minus one leg) to a Cuban National father (minus the 2nd leg).

Ted Cruz is NOT constitutionally eligible and has abandoned his constitutional “originalist” standing and is pushing the “natural born Citizen” eligibility envelope, meaning, and originalism understanding of that constitutional term … “A Bridge Too Far”!

A “natural born Citizen” of the United States is a child born with Sole Allegiance and Unity of Citizenship at birth to one and only one country — the USA, i.e., a child born in the USA of two (2) U.S. Citizens. The parents can be Citizens by Birth or they can be Citizens by Naturalization later in life after immigrating to the USA. But to create a “natural born Citizen” of the United States both parents must be Citizens at the time the child is born in the USA. See this legal reference book used by the founders and framers of our Constitution: Law of Nations or Principles of Natural Law, Vol.1 Chapter 19 Section 212, Emer de Vattel, 1758-1797. The overwhelming majority (probably 85%+) of citizens in the United States are natural born Citizens. This clause was added for future presidents as a national security clause. It is from the group of natural born Citizens that our founders prescribed in the presidential eligibility clause in Clause 5, Section 1 of Article II of the U.S. Constitution that we shall choose a President and Commander in Chief of our military as a strong check against foreign influence via birth allegiances on the person in that singular and most powerful office. One needs all three citizenship legs to be a natural born Citizen and have sole allegiance and claim on you at birth to one and only one country — the United States: 1. Born in the USA. 2. Father must be a U.S. Citizen (born or naturalized). 3. Mother must be U.S. Citizen (born or naturalized). Like a three legged stool if you take away any of these three citizenship legs of the Article II constitutional intent and requirement to being a natural born Citizen, i.e., being born with unity of citizenship in and sole allegiance to the USA, the child is born with more than one country’s citizenship and claim of allegiance/citizenship on them at their birth and thus they are NOT a natural born Citizen of the United States.

In this test and analogy of a stool designed to stand on three legs and if it is missing a leg, it falls down, likewise the person’s claim to ‘natural born Citizenship’ fails if the person does not have all three citizenship legs required to be a natural born Citizen at the time of their birth. See the below Venn Diagram which logically and graphically shows how a natural born Citizen has the intersection and unity of all three Citizenship statuses at birth. Read this essay “ Of Trees and Plants” on basic logic which explains that being simply a “Citizen at Birth (CAB)” does not necessarily make oneself a “natural born Citizen (NBC) at Birth”. Natural born Citizens are overwhelmingly the largest subset of all American citizens. The location of birth being in the U.S. to a U.S. father and U.S. mother … all being U.S. Citizens at the time of birth is the only way one achieves natural born Citizenship status. Natural born Citizenship is gained by the laws of nature not by any man-made law or statute or even a constitutional amendment granting that status. Natural born Citizens need no act of man for their Citizenship was created by nature and nature’s Creator. Natural born Citizens of the United States have sole allegiance to one and only one country at birth … the United States. No foreign power or country can claim their allegiance under U.S. law or the Law of Nations. Over 85% of American citizens fit that requirement, i.e., born in the USA of two U.S. Citizen (born or naturalized) parents. Natural born citizens are the 3 Leaf Clovers of the American citizens, Not the 4 Leaf Clovers. It is from those 85% of American citizens that our founders and framers directed us via Article II, Section 1 of the U.S. Constitution that we shall choose our President and Commander-in-Chief, not a dual-citizen son of a foreign national and British Subject father who was never even an immigrant to this country, and said child being born a British subject himself via his foreign national father, as is the case with Obama’s birth status.  Nor for the case of Ted Cruz who was born in Canada (and thus is a Canadian citizen by birth) to a foreign national Cuban father (and thus also a Cuban citizen by birth).  Cruz and Obama were born with multiple allegiances and citizenships at birth.  Neither are a “natural born Citizen” of the United States and neither is eligible to serve as President and Commander in Chief of our Military.

Call to Action: Constitutionally NOT eligible Candidates Cruz and Rubio Siphoning Off Polling Number Votes, Debate Stage Position, and Soon Real Votes from Eligible Candidates

A Call to Action: Constitutionally NOT eligible Candidates Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio Siphoning Off Polling Number Votes, Debate Stage Position, and Soon Real Votes from Eligible Candidates

Start contacting the constitutionally eligible candidates about this problem. Let the constitutionally eligible candidates know your views re the constitutionally NOT eligible candidates being allowed to remain in the primary race who are diluting the vote for poll numbers, debate stage position, and potentially real votes to be cast in the Iowa Caucus and in New Hampshire soon!

Send  @realDonaldTrump ,  @realBenCarson ,  @RandPaul ,  @CarlyFiorina ,  and  some Tweets and make some FaceBook posts and let them know how allowing constitutionally ineligible candidates for President to run in the Republican Party presidential primary, and to participate in the debates, is hurting their chances in the polling number votes, and potentially in real voting soon.  They need to speak out much more strongly and get #TedCruz and #MarcoRubio removed from consideration. Neither Cruz nor Rubio are constitutionally eligible to be Pres and CinC since they were born with dual-Citizenship and lack of SOLE ALLEGIANCE to the USA at birth.  They are both not “natural born Citizens” and thus per the Constitution, Article II Section 1 Clause 5, they are not constitutionally eligible. Start tweeting to the constitutionally eligible candidates you feelings on this and post in their FaceBook pages that message:  https://twitter.com/cdrkerchner/with_replies

See my blog:  https://cdrkerchner.wordpress.com  and Atty Mario Apuzzo’s blog:  http://puzo1.blogspot.com   for more information and data to send to them re “natural born Citizen” to constitutional standards. Cite the lawsuits underway in FL, NH, and IL challenging Cruz and Rubio legal eligibility already.

Neither Ted Cruz or Marco Rubio who are two active candidates [and the candidate Jindal whose campaign is in suspension] were at birth born to two U.S. Citizen parents in the USA and thus all three are NOT a “natural born Citizen” of the United States with sole allegiance at birth to only the USA. Each of the above were born with citizenship in more than one country and thus have divided allegiance and foreign influences on them by and at birth. No matter what you think of their politics, like them or not, they are NOT constitutionally eligible for the office they seek. Obama has shown us what one can get when one allows a person with divided allegiances via birth into the Oval Office. The “natural born Citizen” clause in our Constitution is a national security clause and must be defended and upheld as originally understood and intended. We must defend the Constitution no matter which political party seeks to subvert it.
