A new essay — Having the Status of Birthright Citizenship Is Not Sufficient to Make One an Article II “Natural Born” Citizen | by constitutional expert Attorney Mario Apuzzo of Jamesburg NJ:
Being born in the USA is “necessary but NOT sufficient” part of one being a “natural born Citizen of the United States” to constitutional standards. One’s parents must also have been Citizens of the United States, either born Citizens or naturalized, when the child was born in the USA for that child to be a “natural born Citizen of the United States” to meet Article II section 1, the presidential eligibility clause in the U.S. Constitution. The founders and framers considered allowing simply a born Citizen to be eligible but they rejected it and elected to require only a natural born Citizen. That extra adjective means something.
See my post on 17 Sep 2011 – Constitution Day 2011 – A Lesson from History: Is Being a Born Citizen of the United States of Sufficient Citizenship Status to be President of the United States and Commander in Chief of Our Military? The Founders and Framers Emphatically Decided … It Was Not!

A Guyana-born naturalized American citizen will be allowed to file papers and raise money to run for president of the United States despite being constitutionally ineligible to serve if he won the election. Looks like people are being allowed to game the system and each step in the process and those administering each step are saying its not my job to vet the candidates for eligibility. Instead it’s that other guy over there behind that tree who should be vetting them. Looks like Déjà vu of the 2008 election cycle gaming all steps in the system when three constitutionally outright ineligible and/or questionably eligible candidates, Obama, McCain, and Calero, were allowed on the ballot … and one won … and now we’re in a constitutional crisis because of this type of progressive movement election law stupidity and people administering the various steps in running for election not simply taking a stand and saying what is proposed is just stupid and wrong and say no. Once again you hear people saying its up to the courts and that eligibility concerns only kick in once one wins the election and is about to be sworn in. But as we saw with Obama, it was Catch 22. They courts said it was not up to them but that it was a political question. And basically it was being argued by the election winner that they won the election and thus that made them eligible since the voters decided. Thus the constitution eligibility issues are being gamed by the prospective candidates and candidates and are being permitted to do so by the gate keepers not having any guts to stand up and say this is stupid and ridiculous and a waste of the taxpayer’s money and just say no and if the candidate still wishes to push it, thus force the courts to then decide the issue before being placed on the ballot and before the election takes place. The American electorate should only be allowed to have choices on an official ballot for elected office for candidates who are constitutionally eligible for the office they seek. This was not the case in 2008. Constitutionally ineligible people were allowed on the ballot. And it appears that it will be happening all over again. All whole election system is being undermined and torn apart and is becoming the laughing stock of the world. Whatever happened to common sense in the USA.

Obama’s Own Secretary of State Hillary Clinton Admits America’s Founders and our Constitution were Inspired by the Ideas and Values of Emer de Vattel | @ BirtherReport.com
The quote from the Secretary of State Hillary Clinton which is highlighted in the image on the left: “America’s Founders were inspired by the ideas and values of early Swiss philosophers like Jean-Jacques Burlamaqui and Emer de Vattel, and the 1848 Swiss Constitution was influenced by our own U.S. Constitution. Swiss commitment to democracy is an example for nations and people everywhere who yearn for greater freedoms and human rights.”

Benjamin Franklin, a founder of our nation and a framer of the U.S. Constitution, sent a personal thank you note to Charles Dumas in the Netherlands in 1775 thanking him for sending Franklin three more copies of Vattel’s The Law of Nations or Principles of Natural Law. This preeminent legal treatise of the time was the key reference book, along with the Bible, for the justification for the fight for our freedom and liberties and the writing of the founding documents. http://www.scribd.com/doc/63130788/Ben-Franklin-thanks-Charles-Dumas-for-Copies-of-Vattel-s-Law-of-Nations
Vattel’s legal treatise, The Law of Nations or Principles of Natural Law, defined the legal term of art, “natural born Citizen”, as a person born in the country to citizen parents. Obama’s father was not a U.S. Citizen and never was.
