(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.”

As background information, Patriotic Citizen TM told The Post & Email that after he heard about the event, he saw it as “an opportunity to bring up the ‘natural born Citizen’ question.”

He [TM] further explained: …

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

Justice Scalia flummoxed about natural born citizenship! — Exclusive: Attorney Larry Klayman asks justice for definition of term used in Constitution

Dear Justice Scalia: If you don’t know enough about the history and original intent of the “natural born Citizen” legal term of art in our Constitution, click on your picture above for a refresher course! Or were you just feigning ignorance when put on the spot?

My comment and open letter to Justice Scalia — Dear Justice Scalia: If you don’t know enough about the history and original intent of the “natural born Citizen” legal term of art in our Constitution, click on your picture above for a refresher course! Or were you just feigning ignorance when put on the spot by answering Attorney Larry Klayman’s question with a question?  I suggest you re-read the preeminent legal treatise on natural law of the founding era, used by the founders and framers, The Law of Nations or Principle of Natural Law, Vol.1 Chapter 19, Section 212.  Also the Federalist Papers and refresh your memory about the framers great concerns about foreign influence on a future president and their original intent to protect that office as much as possible from foreign influence and their assuring the public that they have taken precautions in the new Constitution to prevent that. You may remember that back in November of 2008 I sent you and all the other members of the court a copy of the Federalist Papers and suggested you all re-read it over the Thanksgiving break. You may wish to re-read John Jay’s letter to George Washington, the President of the Constitutional Convention, with Jay’s specific hint/suggestion to Washington that only a “natural born Citizen” be allowed to be President since he would be in command of our armies.  John Jay wanted a strong check against foreign influence. Being simply born a Citizen as Hamilton suggested was not enough.  They wanted a “natural born Citizen”. The adjective natural in that legal term means that this legal term of art comes from natural law.  A citizen at birth created by the laws of nature, not the laws of men. A person born in the country to parents who are both citizens of that country.  A person with unity of citizenship and sole allegiance to only one country at birth.  The convention adopted Jay’s suggestion.  John Jay was an ardent user of Vattel’s Law of Nations and as you probably know became the first Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court.   Think hard.  I’m sure you remember reading that letter from Jay to Washington.   Or if you wish, Attorney Apuzzo and I can come visit you and give you a short brief in private on the Who, What, When, Where, WHY, and How the “natural born Citizen” clause was put into Article II Section 1 Clause 5, the presidential eligibility clause, of the U.S. Constitution .  But really, somehow I think you already know all this but are quite nervous and afraid to face the question and answer with what you know the true answer is due to your fear of Obama and media criticism and Chicago style Saul Alinsky tactics and threats of dire consequences to silence the opposition. We the People know you and the rest of the court have been ducking the question.  Justice Thomas, the only brave soul on the court, told us as much.  You ducked the question and abrogated your responsibility to support and defend the U.S. Constitution.  The truth will come out some day.  It always does.  You sir will be judged by God, We the People, and history.  And the record you and the rest of the Roberts court have shown on this subject and matter will not be held in high esteem.  Of that you can be certain.  Sincerely, CDR Charles Kerchner (Ret),  Lehigh Valley PA

“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.
