Blast From Past – Gov Jindal Born a Citizen of India – Also a Born U.S. Citizen – But Gov. Bobby Jindal is NOT a “natural born Citizen” of the U.S. Adjectives Mean Something. He is NOT Constitutionally Eligible to be President or Vice President

Gov Bobby Jindal is NOT a “natural born Citizen” of the United States as is required in Article II of our U.S. Constitution in the Presidential Eligibility Clause. Click on Image to Learn More.

Since Gov Bobby Jindal has announced today that he is running for the office of President it is time to re-visit his lack of constitutional eligibility issues.  Jindal is not constitutionally eligible to hold the office of President or Vice-President.

I had originally posted about Jindal’s ineligibility to be President or VP in this/my blog on 22 May 2011.  Re-posted here with some updates.

Reporters need to ask people mentioned as Presidential and Vice-Presidential candidates the right question. Not are you a “Citizen” but per the presidential eligibility clause in Article II of our U.S. Constitution, are you a “natural born Citizen” of the United States.  Those adjectives mean something and should not be ignored.  A “natural born Citizen” is a person born in the USA to parents who are both Citizens of the USA, a person born with sole allegiance and unity of citizenship to the USA.  Not a dual Citizen at birth as Bobby Jindal is.

Gov. Bobby Jindal of Louisiana was born a Citizen of India via his Citizens of India father and mother.  They had only recently arrived in the USA when Bobby was born.  By being born in the USA he is a “born Citizen” of the U.S. at birth. But Gov. Bobby Jindal is definitely NOT a “natural born Citizen” at birth of the United States. Adjectives mean something. His parents were not U.S. Citizens when he was born in the USA and thus Gov. Bobby Jindal can never be a natural born Citizen at birth. He was NOT born with sole allegiance to the USA. He was born with dual-citizenship and dual-allegiances, India and U.S.  He is NOT constitutionally eligible to be President or Vice President or Commander in Chief of our military.

One cannot ignore a word or term in our U.S. Constitution.

  Every word in it was chosen carefully and put there for a reason.

As U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice Roger B. Taney wrote in Holmes v. Jennison, 39 U.S. 540 (1840):

“In expounding the Constitution of the United States, every word must have its due force, and appropriate meaning; for it is evident from the whole instrument, that no word was unnecessarily used, or needlessly added. The many discussions which have taken place upon the construction of the constitution, have proved the correctness of this proposition; and shown the high talent, the caution, and the foresight of the illustrious men who framed it. Every word appears to have been weighed with the utmost deliberation, and its force and effect to have been fully understood.”

Thus reporters should not be asking if Gov Bobby Jindal is a Citizen.  Instead they should be asking if he is a “natural born Citizen” —  to constitutional standards.  The adjective “natural” before the words “born Citizen” means something very specific.   It means created by nature or natural law, not by positive, man-made laws such as Title 8 Section 1401, amendments, or treaties.  Man-made laws cannot create a “natural born Citizen“. Only the laws of nature and the facts at the time of the persons birth can create a natural born Citizen. The word “natural” points to the laws of nature and were your parents both U.S. citizens when you were born.  It takes two U.S. citizens to procreate a natural born Citizen born in this country.  A “natural born Citizen” is a person born in the country to parents who are both Citizens of the country.

Gov. Bobby Jindal is a good, conservative Governor for the State of Louisiana. Unfortunately, similar to U.S. Senator Marco Rubio and U.S. Senator Ted Cruz, Gov. Jindal cannot be classified as a natural-born Citizen, and thus he also is not constitutionally eligible to run for President and Commander in Chief of our military.  And per the last line of the 12th Amendment to our U.S. Constitution,  he is not eligible to run for Vice President either.  I know this is a sad thought for conservatives like myself, but if we wish to protect and uphold the Constitution, we must uphold our Constitution and look to history and original intent and understanding of the words and terms used for an explanation.

Gov. Bobby Jindal was born in Louisiana, as his recently released birth certificate attests (below). However, at the time of his birth, both of his parents were very recent immigrants to the US from India.  His mother was three months pregnant when she arrived in Louisiana. Thus, Jindal is simply a “born citizen“, not a constitutional Article II Section 1 “natural born Citizen” of the United States.  Gov Bobby Jindal is a dual-Citizen, dual-allegiances person by birth gaining citizenship in India via his non-U.S. Citizen parents and gaining basic U.S. Citizen at Birth status via being born in the USA to people legally allowed to be here. The good news is that if Bobby Jindal’s wife was a citizen when their children were born in the US, then their children will have attained the status of natural born citizenship, which means they can one day run for President. Natural born Citizen is a legal term of art from Natural Law and the Laws of Nature and the Law of Nations. Natural born Citizens are the children of Citizens with said children born in the USA of two U.S. Citizens (who themselves both were either born Citizens or naturalized citizens at the time of birth of their child). Gov Bobby Jindal can serve as a terrific Governor of Louisiana,  or a U.S. Senator from Louisiana, but he is not constitutionally eligible for the office of President and Commander of the Military, or the office of Vice President.

P.P.S.  This is NOT about politics or anything else but the U.S. Constitution, the fundamental law of our land.

Blast From Past (2012): 100% Proof Rick Santorum Born a Dual-Citizen and Does Not Have Sole Allegiance at Birth to the USA and thus is Not a Natural Born Citizen to Constitutional Standards. His Father Aldo was an Italian Citizen when Rick Was Born and Only perfected his naturalization and citizenship to the U.S. in 1961 3 yrs after Rick was born in 1958. Rick Thus Inherited His Father’s Italian Citizenship from His Father When Rick was Born. Father Aldo Did Not Renounce His Italian Citizenship Until 1961

Rick Santorum is NOT a Natural Born Citizen of the United States to Constitutional Standards since his Italian born father had not yet taken the oath of allegiance to the USA and renounced his Italian citizenship when Rick was born in 1958. Click on image for evidence.
Aldo Santorum Took U.S. Oath of Allegiance in 1961
Aldo Santorum took the citizenship Oath of Allegiance to the U.S. in 1961 three years after Rick Santorum was born.

Given Rick Santorum’s Announcement Today 27 May 2015 Declaring His Candidacy for President, Below is a Blast From the Past From Oct 2012.

Also a Question: Has Rick Santorum Renounced His Italian Citizenship Gained at His Birth From His Italian Citizen Father Similar to Ted Cruz Renouncing His Canadian Citizenship Gained at His Birth Via His Cuban/Canadian Father? If They Gained Basic U.S. Citizenship Via Their Respective U.S. Citizen Mother’s Did They Not Also Gain Basic Citizenship in a Foreign Country via Their Father’s Foreign National Citizenship?  Ted Cruz Had at Birth Another Citizenship Issue Since He Had a ‘Jus Soli’ Nationality Law Issue Since He Was Born in Canada. But Both Cruz and Santorum Gained Dual Citizenship and Dual Allegiance at Birth Via ‘Jus Sanquinis’ Nationality Laws From Their Respective Fathers Who Had Un-renounced Foreign Citizenship and Their Respective U.S. Citizen Mothers.

From Oct 2012:  100% Proof Rick Santorum was born a Dual-Citizen with Dual-Allegiances (Italy and USA) and thus is Not a Natural Born Citizen of the United States, i.e., a person who was born with ‘Unity of Citizenship and Sole Allegiance‘ to the USA at birth. Rick’s father who was born in Italy and was an immigrant from Italy took the oath of allegiance to the USA and formally perfected his naturalized U.S. Citizenship and renounced his Italian Citizenship in 1961 which was 3 yrs after Rick was born in 1958. Prior to 1961 Aldo Santorum was still an Italian citizen which Aldo still had not yet renounced. Thus when Rick was born he inherited Italian citizenship from his Italian born and still as of 1958 Italian citizen father Aldo.

Flashback to the primary election in the spring of 2012 and Rick Santorum’s reluctance to come clean on questions about if and when his Italian born father renounced his Italian citizenship and took his citizenship oath of allegiance to the USA:  https://cdrkerchner.wordpress.com/2012/03/06/rick-santorum-still-refusing-to-provide-copies-of-naturalization-papers-proving-his-father-was-a-u-s-citizen-when-rick-was-born/

With multiple candidates for President lacking constitutional eligibility “natural born Citizen” status, we thus have another reason the Republican Party has been trying to abrogate and ignore the “natural born Citizen” clause instead of trying to legally amend it out of the U.S. Constitution which would be very difficult to do once the People learned and fully understood the critical national security implications of removing that clause as to who can be the President and Commander in Chief of our military. Obama is an obvious example of the national security implications of having a person who is not a natural born Citizen being seated in the Oval Office.  It is obvious the the politicians in both political parties are perfectly willing to put their personal political ambition and party politics above the U.S. Constitution and then ignore We the People when we ask them what the heck is going on.  The Republican Party has been in cahoots with the Democrat Party to ignore the U.S. Constitution and thus we got the debacle and constitutional crisis we are in now with an illegal, unconstitutional person Obama residing in the White House.  When people ask why the Republican Party is silent on the lack of natural born Citizenship of Obama answer to them — Marco Rubio, Rick Santorum, Bobby Jindal, [and Ted Cruz] … and likely other (possibly Nikki Haley) upcoming Republican stars who are NOT natural born Citizens of the United States to constitutional standards … and whom the RNC wants to run for President of VP anyway.

Rick Santorum, Marco Rubio, Bobby Jindal [and Ted Cruz] are clearly not constitutionally eligible to serve as President or VP and yet the Republican Party puts them forward and protects them. And people ask why the Republican Party and their supporters in the major media don’t want to discuss Obama’s lack of natural born Citizenship. This is why. Neither political party wants Article II Section 1 Clause 5 of the U.S. Constitution enforced. Both parties are betraying the U.S. Constitution for their own political goals and power. Party politics trumps the Constitution in their eyes. George Washington warned us about this. And his warning has come to pass.

Also, read more about Obama’s ID crimes and his constitutional ineligibility here:  http://www.scribd.com/protectourliberty/collections/  When will we return to the rule of law and enforce our identity theft protection laws and U.S. Constitution in regards to Obama the Identity-Fraud-in-Chief residing in the White House?

This is NOT about politics or anything else but the U.S. Constitution, the fundamental law of our land. If we lose the full force and effect of every word in it, we lose our constitutional republic and our rule of law. Amend it via a properly brought and approved constitutional amendment or respect and obey it.  Politicians and the political parties should not try to dissemble the true original intent, understood meaning, and purpose of the words chosen and used therein when the founders and framers wrote them in the founding era just to achieve some modern day political party agenda and goal.

“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the veil of indifference to their necessity to continually be “on watch” and at times to stand up and protect our U.S. Constitution from usurpation by progressive/marxist/radical politicians operating in relative secrecy protected by an enabling press and major media … thinking and saying it’s the job of someone else … and living their lives in general apathy about what the national government is up to, they will allow the adoption of every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation without knowing how it happened.” CDR Kerchner (Ret)’s alert and paraphrasing earlier warnings about the socialist/progressives’ long-term stealth agenda to transform the USA from a constitutional republic into a top-down, central controlled, fascist-socialist form of government.

Blast From the Past: Marco Rubio is a Cuban Citizen. Senator Marco Rubio’s Lacks Natural Born Citizenship. Not Constitutionally Eligible for Pres or VP.

Marco Rubio was born a Cuban Citizen via his parents. UPDATE 27 May 2011: See PDF copy of the Sep 1975 Petition for Naturalization for Mario Rubio, father of Senator Marco Rubio. Marco was born in May 1971, more than 4 years before his father Mario elected to become a U.S. Citizen and renounced his Cuban citizenship in Nov 1975
NOTE: This post is a follow on and update of my original post breaking this story on 22 May 2011 in this blog. That original post can be read here.

Senator Marco Rubio’s father was not a naturalized citizen when Marco was born in May 1971 per National Archives data. His father applied for naturalization in Sep 1975. Marco Rubio not constitutionally eligible to run for President or VP. Thus Marco’s father passed Cuban citizenship at birth to Marco Rubio under Cuban law, U.S. law, natural law, and international law.  Being a dual citizen at birth, Marco Rubio is NOT a “natural born Citizen of the United States”.

U.S. Constitution Article II Section 1:  No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.

U.S. Constitution’s 12th Amendment – last sentence: “But no person constitutionally ineligible to the office of President shall be eligible to that of Vice-President of the United States.”

A natural born Citizen of the United States is one born in the United States to two U.S. Citizens who were Citizens of the United States either by birth or naturalization at the time of the birth of the child.  A natural born Citizen of the United States is a child born with sole allegiance to the United States, a person born without Citizenship in any other country other than the USA at the time of their birth.  A natural born Citizen has no foreign influence or claim on them by another country at the time of their birth under U.S. law and the Law of Nations.  That is why the founders and framers chose the legal term of art “natural born Citizen” for the eligibility clause for the singular most powerful office in our form of government, the President and Commander in Chief of our military. They did not wish command of our military forces to ever devolve to a person born with dual allegiances. Marco Rubio was born with dual citizenship and dual allegiances. He is both a Cuban citizen and a U.S. citizen by birth. Marco Rubio is thus NOT a natural born Citizen of the United States and is thus not constitutionally eligible to serve as President or Vice President of the United States.

Up until my first blog post on 22 May 2011 of the facts as to when his parents became U.S. citizens, Senator Marco Rubio of FL has been evasive and not been forthcoming about his exact citizenship status upon his birth in the United States in May 1971.  Phone calls, emails, and letters to his office by various volunteers over the last year have gone  unanswered on the question of whether his parents (who were immigrants from Cuba) had become naturalized citizens of the USA by the time of Marco’s birth in the USA.

We have given Senator Rubio long enough to be voluntarily forthcoming on this information.  A phone call last week by a volunteer researcher assisting my efforts to learn more about Senator Marco Rubio’s exact birth citizenship status was made to the National Archives (NARA) to learn the facts about Senator Marco Rubio and certain other individuals who are mentioned in the media as potential candidates for President or Vice President.  That is, are they constitutionally eligible, i.e., “natural born Citizens of the United States” as is required in Article II, Section 1 of the U.S. Constitution.

According to the information conveyed to the volunteer during the phone calls to NARA about Senator Marco Rubio of FL, his father did not petition to become a naturalized citizen of the United States until Sep 1975, a full four years after Marco Rubio was born.  A natural born Citizen of the United States is one born in the United States to two U.S. Citizens at the time of the birth.  Thus Senator Marco Rubio is NOT a natural born Citizen of the United States.  He is a native born Citizen under the 14th Amendment and/or the Wong Kim Ark (1898) Supreme Court decision which grants basic citizenship to individuals born in the USA.  But Senator Marco Rubio is NOT a natural born Citizen under Article II, Section 1.  Thus Senator Marco Rubio is NOT constitutionally eligible to serve as President or Vice President of the United States per Article II, Section 1, and the last sentence of the 12th Amendment to the Constitution.  Senator Marco Rubio has obviously known this for a long time.   His silence in response to the American electorate and avoidance to answering the questions put to him over the last year about this issue says a lot about Marco Rubio and indicates that when it comes to his own personal political objectives he is in the progressive school of thought about following the fundamental law of the land, our U.S. Constitution.  To people of the progressive school of thinking the Constitution says and means whatever one wants it to mean to allow one to achieve their personal political power and goals, i.e., what John McCain did in the 2008 presidential election cycle in making a deal with Senator Obama and the U.S. Senate so that McCain could run unmolested about questions by the Democrat Party operatives and their allies in the major media as to his natural born Citizenship status.

Senator Marco Rubio is NOT a natural born Citizen.  He was born with dual allegiance.  One to the USA by location of birth and the other to Cuba via gaining Cuban citizenship at birth via his father since his father had not yet naturalized to the USA and renounced his Cuban citizenship by doing so. This is similar to the situation with Obama gaining British citizenship at birth from his Kenyan British Subject father. Senator Marco Rubio should stand up for the Constitution and speak out about this and say that as much as he’d like to run someday for those offices, he is not constitutionally eligible to run for President or VP.  He should be a protector of the U.S. Constitution, the document that gave his parents the freedom and liberty they sought when they came to this country.  He should put his personal ambitions for higher office aside.  He should tell the RNC and people in the media the facts and stand up like a statesman should and support the Constitution and not allow them to continue their musing and aspirations to run him for Prez and VP some day. To allow such discussions to continue in the major media is allowing them to continue to undermine the true meaning and intent of the “natural born Citizen” clause in Article II of the U.S. Constitution.

In addition to clarifying his own constitutional citizenship status, Senator Marco Rubio of FL should also say that Obama is not eligible either and should be investigated for election fraud and criminal activities such as SSN fraud and draft registration fraud and be removed from office.  We not only have a constitutionally ineligible person in the Oval Office but we also have a grifter and criminal in that office.

The leadership of the Republican Party and the RNC is also complicit in this usurpation of the founders and framers intent with the eligiblity clause in Article II Section 1.   The Republican Party leadership has ENABLED Obama to get away with what he’s done to illegally usurp national power in order that the Republican Party can do the same thing too, i.e., ignore the Constitution when it suits their own political power objectives.  It’s time for a change in the Republican Party leadership … a major change.  We need dedicated constitutionalists to take over the party and fight the righteous battle to restore the rule of law and the U.S. Constitution to full force and effect in Washington DC and throughout our great land and to investigate Obama and have him removed for the fraud and criminal he is, and to thence begin a purge in Washington DC of all the enablers of this usurpation and cover up.  We the People demand it.

Copies of the naturalization petition for U.S. Citizenship filed in Sep 1975 for Mario Rubio, the father of Senator Marco Rubio who was born in May 1971, were mailed to me from the National Archives and will be published here upon receipt.


UPDATE 27 May 2011:  Copy of Sep 1975 Petition for Naturalization for Mario Rubio, father of Senator Marco Rubio who was born in May 1971, more than four (4) years before his father elected to become a U.S. Citizen and renounce his Cuban citizenship. Also note that his father came to the USA in May 1956, seven months before Castro’s ill fated invasion of Cuba from Mexico in Dec 1956, and more than three years before Castro took over Cuba. Thus Senator Marco Rubio was not telling the truth when he stated online [in early May 2011] in his U.S. Senate official biography that his parents came to the USA after Castro’s take over of Cuba.
