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.

It’s Deja Vu All Over Again with Chief Justice Roberts — A Statement from CDR Charles Kerchner (Ret) about the U.S. Supreme Court Decision

With “CINO” (Conservative in Name Only) Chief Justice Roberts and his Neville Chamberlain leadership of the Supreme Court it is Deja Vu all over again.  Roberts has been the problem all along in allowing our Constitution to be trampled by Obama – in particular Article II Section 1 Clause 5.  Now Roberts has done it again — siding with the liberal wing of the court to “Move Forward” Obama’s fascist and socialist agenda to socialize America and ignore our  constitutional republic system of government to help Obama “Move Forward” to a dictatorial federal fascist socialist form of government.  See below post from the fall of 2010.

A Statement from CDR Charles Kerchner (Ret) about the U.S. Supreme Court Decision on Kerchner et al v Obama & Congress et al

For Immediate Release – 29 November 2010 2:30 p.m. EST

A Statement from CDR Charles Kerchner (Ret) about the U.S. Supreme Court Decision on Kerchner et al v Obama & Congress et al

The “Roberts Court” of the U.S. Supreme Court in my opinion will be known in history as the “Neville Chamberlain Supreme Court”, the great Obama appeaser court. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neville_Chamberlain
Appeasement due to fear that some immediate small amount of veiled and threatened violence from the far left socialists and Saul Alinsky goons, tyrants and bullies, and thus not doing the right thing early on to support the rule of law and the Constitution, ultimately leads to much bigger problems later. History has shown us that over and over. The Obama eligibility matter should have been fully and thoroughly addressed and openly investigated by the investigative reporters in the major media and political parties early in the spring of 2008 during the primaries to get all of Obama’s documents released to the public as part of the vetting process. It wasn’t done.
 
Congress should have addressed this when asked by 100s of thousands of constituent letters and petitions sent to them and when constitutionally it was required to so under the 20th Amendment. It didn’t. The courts should have addressed the merits of the questions when appealed to early on. They didn’t. Everyone in our system of government chose ignoring the problem and appeasement over confrontation and punted the ball to someone else. Now it is far worse. The Supreme Court has chosen appeasement and inaction over action and dealing with the issue and questions openly in a court of law under the rules of evidence and law. Our constitutional republic and legal system is now compromised and broken top to bottom and bottom to top. And it will only get worse as our legal system and constitutional republic further deteriorates and the rule of law gives way more and more to appeasement of bullies and tyrants in waiting such as Obama and his far left Marxist cronies and puppet masters. Appeasement of the constitutional usurpers will not make it go away. It will only delay the inevitable and fester and grow and in the end be a far worse situation to deal with when the real nature of the tyrant reveals himself in a much bolder way and attempts to take away all our protections to our unalienable rights and liberty. Neville Chamberlain tactics never work with bullies, alinskyites, tyrants, and national socialists.
The U.S. Supreme Court orders were posted at 10:00 a.m. on 29 Nov 2010. See below. Certiorari for our case was denied. The two justices appointed by Obama who in my opinion had a direct financial conflict of interest (their very jobs and appointments to the court) in the outcome of this petition and case did not recuse themselves even though they should have! Their recusal was called for in our petition on page 36 with the relevant U.S. Code cited. The two justices and the court ignored that. There were recusals declared by these two Obama appointees in many other petitions including the one immediately before our petition in the orders list and the one immediately after. Imo, apparently the court needed all nine justices in the room to kill the petition. With the full court of 9 justices it’s the rule/vote of 4 to grant certiorari to move the case forward. With two recusals that would have left only 7 justices and it’s then the rule/vote of 3 to grant certiorari to move the case forward. For information on the Rule of 3 see:  Supreme Court Practices, 9th edition, by Eugene Cressman, et al, page 324. The lawsuit Pryor v United States (1971) is an example case of the Rule of 3 being used.  I suspect the water cooler buzz at SCOTUS was that 3 justices were leaning for granting certiorari. So it looks like Sotomayer and Kagan ignored ethical considerations and stayed in the review of the petition to be sure it got killed, i.e., to be in that room to argue against Certiorari, and to require 4 votes to grant cert instead of 3 … financial conflict of interest and ethics be damned by those two justices. JMHO.
