Pietro Santorum, Rick’s Grandfather, Became a Naturalized U.S. Citizen on 14 May 1930.

Interesting observations: Per the court records, Pietro’s son Aldo and Pietro’s other children and his wife were still living in Riva Italy when Pietro naturalized in the USA. The children listed as still living in Italy with his wife Maria are: Bruno born 28 Sep 1920, Aldo born 9 Jan 1923, and Carla born May 23 1927.   Also, and interestingly,  it should be noted that in the filing it states that Pietro says that he resided continuously in the USA since 20 Nov 1923 and yet we know from the New York Passenger Lists 1820-1957 Immigration and Travel that he went back to Italy for some period of time prior to Jun 1927, since there is a record of his return to the USA on 18 Jun 1927, which is near the time is his third child, a daughter Carla, was born in May 1927 in Italy . Thus one can infer that Pietro was back in Italy not simply for a short few weeks visit but instead was back there for quite a few months during the period of the last half of 1926 and the first half of 1927. This contradicts the statement in his citizenship application that he lived in the USA continuously from 1923 to 1930.

The remaining question is did Pietro and/or Aldo, upon his arrival in the USA after Pietro naturalized, take the necessary steps to perfect Aldo’s path to “derivative” U.S. citizenship using Pietro’s naturalization status.  In the following link under the section labeled Derivative Citizenship are the rules and procedures for “perfecting” one’s derivative citizenship which requires the children of the naturalized father to take the Oath of Allegiance to the USA and therein renounce their natural born Citizenship of the country of their birth.  The question is, did Aldo who was a natural born Citizen of Italy ever take the positive and affirmative step of taking the Oath of Allegiance to the USA.  The regs: http://www.kterry.com/citizenship/certofcitizenship.htm

More from CDR Kerchner (Ret):  Barack Obama is NOT a “natural born Citizen of the United States” and is thus constitutionally ineligible to be the President and Commander in Chief of our military. Obama was born to a FOREIGN NATIONAL FATHER who was NEVER a U.S. Citizen nor was Obama’s father even an immigrant to the USA or even a permanent resident in the USA.  For no other U.S. President in the history of the nation since the founding generation (who were exempt from the natural born Citizen clause in the U.S.  Constitution via a grandfather clause in Article II Section 1) was that the case, i.e., having a foreign national father who was never a U.S. Citizen or even an immigrant to this country. Obama being seated as the putative president is an outrageous violation of Article II Section 1 of the U.S. Constitution, the presidential eligibility clause.  Obama was not born with sole allegiance to the USA. Sole allegiance and unity of Citizenship at birth was the goal and purpose for putting the natural born Citizen clause into Article II Section 1 of the Constitution as to who could serve as president once the founding generation has passed away.  Obama (II) was born a British Subject via his foreign national father Obama (Sr.) who was a British Subject.   Obama is not a “natural born Citizen of the United States” to constitutional standards since he was born with dual allegiance and citizenship.  The founders and framers did not want anyone with foreign allegiance to ever get command of our military, i.e., be the president. Obama is constitutionally not eligible to be president and commander in chief of our military.

Adjectives mean something.  A “Citizen at Birth” is not logically identically equal to a “natural born Citizen at Birth”. Barack Obama may be a ‘Citizen of the United States’  but he is not a ‘natural born Citizen of the United States’ and does not meet the constitutional standards as to who can be the President and Commander in Chief of our military: http://puzo1.blogspot.com/2010/03/obama-maybe-citizen-of-united-states.html

The natural born Citizen clause in our Constitution is a national security clause inserted into our Constitution by John Jay and George Washington.  Read why the natural born Citizen clause is still important and worth protecting.

The Obama constitutional eligibility issue is not a fringe issue!  South Carolina Poll Results – A poll done by Public Policy Polling (PPP) shows that almost 2/3 of GOP voters want Obama’s constitutional eligibility and true legal identity investigated.

“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of liberalism they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation without knowing how it happened.” Ronald Reagan alerting us to Norman Thomas’ and the socialist/progressives’ long-term stealth agenda to transform the USA from a constitutional republic into a top-down, central controlled, socialist form of government

Rick Santorum Still Refusing to Provide Copies of Naturalization Papers Proving His Father was a U.S. Citizen When Rick was Born

Is Rick Santorum a Natural Born Citizen of the United States to Constitutional Standards?

Rick Santorum Still Refusing to Provide Copies of Naturalization Papers Proving His Father was a U.S. Citizen When Rick was Born

Many, many contacts over several months by many people to Rick Santorum’s campaign offices by telephone, letters, and email … and even to his home address in VA via registered postal mail with questions about how, where, and when his father Aldo Santorum [who was born in Italy to non-U.S. Citizen parents] became a US. Citizen, have gone unanswered.  Rick it is a simple question and the public has the right to know. When, if he did, did your immigrant father Aldo who came to the USA as a young lad from Italy naturalize? Provide a copy of the paperwork of same to the American electorate.

Rick Santorum has been asked repeatedly to provide copies to the public of his father’s Citizenship papers. The questions to Rick Santorum have gone repeatedly ignored and unanswered.  Why?  This evasive behavior on this subject by Rick Santorum reminds me of the same type of behavior by Marco Rubio. See the prior story about Marco Rubio and ultimately what we learned as to why he was evading answering the citizenship status of his parents and when they became U.S. Citizens in relation to Marco’s birth date.

Thus, given Rick Santorum’s similar evasive behavior over a lengthy period of time in his not answering the questions and providing copies of the citizenship papers for his father Aldo Santorum, if they exist, to show when Aldo Santorum naturalized as a U.S. Citizen, we have begun to dig in earnest to find the answers.  We constitutionalists who firmly believe that the “natural born Citizen” clause in the U.S. Constitution is very important and applies to all.  We believe that all candidates for the office of President and Vice President need to publicly prove that status, i.e., that they were born in the USA to two (born or naturalized) U.S. Citizen parents given what we have discovered about the person now residing in the Oval Office.  Thus since Rick Santorum is not being forthcoming, we have begun the paper trail research in the various archives to get the facts that Rick Santorum refuses to provide willingly.  Why Rick Santorum is making things so difficult for we in the American electorate and is not being transparent and open and giving the public the information they ask for on this matter is beyond me.  Come on Rick, provide the information and supporting paperwork voluntarily.  However, in the meantime, I hereby share an initial report of what we found or should I say what we did not find in the NARA naturalization records search for PA and West Virginia, which is where his father lived up until Rick was born, to our knowledge:

Here is a copy of an emailed report of what I received in Feb 2012 from the regional office of the national archives (NARA) in Philadelphia PA.

 Rick Santorum says he is the “true conservative” and that he strongly supports the U.S. Constitution.  Well, if that is true, he cannot just ignore Article II Section 1, the presidential eligibility clause, i.e., the “natural born Citizen” requirement to be the President and Commander in Chief.  I strongly urge Rick Santorum to voluntarily release the records concerning how, where, and when his father Aldo Santorum became a U.S. Citizen, if he did. The same data for his grandfather Pietro Santorum, who was also an immigrant from Italy and was born in Italy to non-U.S. Citizen parents, would also be helpful and I encourage Rick to release those citizenship papers if they exist too.

Does the proven lack of “natural born Citizen” of the United States status by several nationally promoted Republican candidates for President and/or Vice President explain why the Republican National Committee and Party and their conservative allies in the media have not said a word about Obama’s clear cut lack of “natural born Citizen” status and the criminal acts to cover that up by Obama?  Are these Republican and so called conservative allies in the media allowing Obama to destroy the Constitution and Republic all for personal political gain of their party?  If so, what does that say about their being “true conservatives” as some so publicly claim?
