U.S. Senator Kamala Harris is NOT a ‘natural born Citizen‘ of USA – NOT Eligible to be the Vice President, or the President and Commander-in-Chief of Our Military, per U.S. Constitution

A Simple Euler Logic Diagram Shows Logical Relationship of “natural born Citizens” to Other Type “Citizens” of the United States. Only a “natural born Citizen” Can Constitutionally be the President and Commander in Chief or the Vice-President. Click on Image For More Information.

Both of Senator Kamala Harris’s parents were not U.S. Citizens when Kamala was born. Kamala Harris was born to a Jamaican Citizen father (minus one stool leg) and to a Citizen of India mother (minus the 2nd stool leg).

Senator Kamala Harris’s staff has refused to answer any questions regarding the citizenship status of her parents when she was born. The normal path to becoming a naturalized U.S. Citizen takes five years. Kamala Harris was born in 1964. Her father emigrated from Jamaica to the USA in 1961. Her mother emigrated from India to the USA in 1960. Thus there was not sufficient time for either of Kamala’s parents to become naturalized U.S. Citizens. Kamala’s father eventually became a naturalized U.S. Citizen per his bio. It is not known at this time if Kamala’s mother ever became a naturalized U.S. Citizen. She moved to Canada with Kamala when Kamala was about seven years old. It is possible that Kamala’s mother might have naturalized at some point as a Canadian citizen. Kamala Harris’s mother is now deceased. As I said in the first sentence, Senator Harris is not being transparent on this issue and her office staff has refused to answer any questions on this subject. Given Kamala Harris’s year of birth, and her parents emigration years, she was born in the USA to two foreign nationals and thus inherited the citizenship of another country when she was born, in addition to being a basic Citizen by being born in the USA to aliens legally domiciled here. Thus Senator Kamala Harris was born with citizenship and required allegiance at birth to more than one country. She is a dual-Citizen and was born with foreign influence on her by birth by required allegiance at birth to another country, other than the USA. This is hardly what the founders and framers intended when they selected the “natural born Citizen” requirement for the person who would in the future be permitted to be the President and Commander in Chief of our military, once the founding generation was gone. And, per the 12th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, she cannot serve as the Vice President either, for the same reasons.

As per ‘Principles of Natural Law‘ in place at the time of the founding of our country and when the founding documents including the U.S. Constitution were written, a ‘natural born Citizen’ is one born in the country to parents who are both Citizens (born Citizens or naturalized Citizens) of that country when their child is born in the country. See ‘The Three Legged Stool Test‘ for a graphic presentation of this constitutional requirement as to who can be President and Commander in Chief or our military. See the Euler Diagram shown to the right for a logic diagram presentation of this constitutional requirement.

U.S. Senator Kamala Harris is NOT a ‘natural born Citizen” of the United States to constitutional standards since both of her parents were foreign nationals who were NOT U.S. citizens when Senator Harris was born in the USA. She is missing two legs of the three legs of the ‘natural born Citizen’ test. She is of course a basic “Citizen” at birth per the Wong Kim Ark legal decision by the U.S. Supreme Court of 1898, and as such she is eligible to be a U.S. Senator, but she is not a “natural born Citizen” at birth, and thus is NOT eligible to be President and Commander in Chief of our military or the Vice President, per our U.S. Constitution. She inherited multiple allegiances at birth due to her parents being foreign nationals living in the USA when she was born. Senator Kamala Harris did not have sole allegiance and unity of citizenship at birth to the USA and only the USA.

Some other politicians besides Kamala Harris (D) in the two major political parties who have been mentioned for future election to high national political office, who are also not a “natural born Citizen” to constitutional standards are:  Marco Rubio (R), Ted Cruz (R), Bobby Jindal (R), and Nikki Haley (R). Both major political parties are choosing to ignore the founders and framers intent and understanding of what a “natural born Citizen” is in order to run candidates that they believe are very marketable political candidates. This started in a major way in the 2008 election cycle with Obama vs McCain.

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.
