WHO IS — AND IS NOT — A “NATURAL BORN CITIZEN”? | by Joseph Demaio
(May 16, 2021) — When, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for your humble servant to respond to comments in greater detail than allowed in the designated section of P&E posts, a longer post is required. Such is the case with this offering regarding assertions made by those who reject the likely application of Book I, Ch. 19, § 212 of Emmerich de Vattel’s 1758 treatise, “Le Droit des Gens” or “The Law of Nations,” to the proper interpretation of Art. 2, § 1, Cl. 5 of the Constitution, the “natural born Citizen” restriction for the presidency. Here we go again.
Valued P&E readers, that which follows is somewhat convoluted, but given that the issues are less than simple, a more complex explanation is necessitated. Translation (more on that topic later…): keep some of your favorite caffeinated beverages handy. Your humble servant has his can of Dr Pepper nearby. In addition, it is assumed that readers are already possessed of some historical background relating to the issues, since complete treatment of all the interstices of the matter would make this offering much longer. For that, see all of your servant’s prior P&E posts on the topic.
Is Kamala Harris eligible to be Joe Biden’s VP? | by Gary Wilmott | @AmericanThinker
Is Kamala Harris a natural born citizen?
It is no secret that Harris wants to be Joe Biden’s vice president. The junior senator from California clearly sees an opening to her real objective: the presidency of the United States. With Biden surprisingly outlasting the other anti-American socialist candidates, Harris recognizes that Biden’s age and declining cognitive abilities pose a glorious opportunity to resurrect her presidential ambitions. After all, there is an good chance that the bumbling, incoherent Biden might have to resign or be removed in his first term and his V.P. would succeed him. Even if Biden managed to miraculously finish his first term, it is unlikely that he would or could run for a second.
Harris would love to “back door” her way into the presidency, especially given the fact that her vacuous campaign was an unmitigated disaster, and any future presidential ambitions looked to be a virtual impossibility only a few months ago.
But not so fast. Harris is constitutionally ineligible to be VPOTUS (12th Amendment) or POTUS (Article 2). She is not — nor can she ever be — a natural born citizen, the highest standard of citizenship mandated by the Constitution for the president and commander-in-chief. The Founding Fathers wanted a higher standard of citizenship for the POTUS because they did not want any competing allegiances with foreign governments.
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
Neither of Senator Kamala Harris’ parents were U.S. Citizens when Kamala was born in 1964 in CA. 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). They both were sojourning in the USA on temporary VISA’s. Thus she was born with multiple citizenship and allegiance to a foreign country, divided allegiance at birth.
Senator Kamala Harris’ 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’ 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’ 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 considered to be a basic Citizen of the United States under Positive Law, by being born in the USA to aliens legally living 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.
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.
First, a comment about my narrative. Very little about Obama’s early life narrative has not been subject to constant change and revision by Obama himself during various stages of his adult life prior to running for high national office to suit his then current agenda and objectives. As a genealogist of many decades experience and familiar with putting together such things as proven data, unproven data, records, statements of relatives, and other tidbits about a person over time to form a plausible narrative to explain the alleged “facts” given the information in hand at the moment of writing, and always subject to update as more “facts” are discovered which support or dispute the suggested narrative, I cogitated on the “facts” about Obama as known to me from early 2008 until the early summer of 2009 and finally wrote this in June 2009 to try and explain things. I thought I’d re-post this suggested narrative, with updates, to try to explain events we’ve seen to-date regarding the Usurper in the Oval Office. If you have Twitter, Facebook, and email lists, feel free to “tweet” or forward this narrative to others. Thanks.

Underage U.S. teenager in Hawaii gets pregnant via a significantly older married man and foreign national from Kenya which would have been a very unusual event in 1961.
Mother of teenager is in total shock over the event as would have been many mothers of teenage girls getting pregnant in 1961 and says to her daughter you have ruined your life and will make going to college much harder for yourself and convinces the teenage girl to accept the suggestion of Obama Sr. that she should go to Kenya in the 2nd trimester or early 3rd trimester of her pregnancy with the plan to give up the baby to the Kenyan natural family and relatives of the natural father of the child to be raised in Kenya by them.
Mother travels to Kenya either directly from Hawaii or via Canada. If she was indeed married to Obama Sr. as claimed she would have been able to get a British passport as the wife of a British Subject, Obama Sr. Traveling via Canada would allow her easier access to Kenya since as the spouse of a British Subject she would be flying from one British Commonwealth nation, Canada, to a British Colony. That would make travel to and entry into Kenya much easier. And getting into and out of Canada to and from the USA for an American citizen (the mother) was easy back in 1961.
After the birth of her child in Kenya, the U.S. teenage mother is supposed to return to Hawaii without her child, or fly directly to Washington State, or fly to Washington State via Vancouver, Canada, leaving the child with the natural father’s family in Kenya and restart her life back in Hawaii and/or in college in Washington State minus the child … and go to college, re-starting her life anew. In 1961, a pregnant teenage girl giving up a child to restart their lives anew was not unusual.
But nature and maternal instincts throws the plan a curve ball. Maternal instincts kick in and mother cannot leave the baby in Kenya, either due to pure maternal instincts or in seeing the poor conditions in Kenya that her child would be raised in with a mostly absentee father over there. Thus she changes her mom’s plan and she takes the baby and Kenyan hospital birth certificate issued by the Mombasa Hospital to the American Embassy or consulate in Kenya and shows them the Kenyan Birth Certificate for her child and “explains” the baby was born unexpectedly in Kenya while there visiting her “husband’s” family. U.S. officials then stamp her passport as traveling with an infant child.
Mother gets on plane or ship carrying the child and travels back to Hawaii and appears at the airport or port upon arrival with the new baby in tow, or to Washington State, or to Vancouver, Canada, and calls her mother in Hawaii telling her what she did, much to the shock of her mother, the child’s U.S. grandmother. Baby easily is passed through U.S. entry officials due to the U.S. Embassy stamp on mother’s passport and the supporting Kenyan birth certificate showing her, a U.S. citizen, is the mother, or Obama’s mom brings him across the border from Vancouver, Canada, to Washington State to start college in the fall of 1961.
The date of arrival back in the USA is on or about 4 Aug 1961. Obama II would likely be a few weeks old by that time putting his real date of birth sometime in mid or early July 1961 in Kenya.
Child’s U.S. grandmother is very much beside herself at this change in plans by her daughter, the mother of the child. The child’s grandmother then knowing or learning from legal advisers how lax Hawaiian birth registration laws were in 1961, then cooks up a plan and scheme with the child’s mother, to lie to Hawaiian officials and swear and sign an affidavit at the birth registry office that the child was born in Hawaii at home on 4 Aug 1961, the circa date of return to the USA and not the real date of birth, with no witnesses but them, in order to get the child U.S. citizenship (a highly desirable status) to make future travel and life easier on the family and new child.
They committed this fraud and lie and cover-up simply to gain U.S. citizenship for the child, a highly coveted status for any child, not knowing that this child might someday grow up and try to become the President and thus risk having their fraud, plans, and lies exposed.
Birth registration office then routinely issues the announcements to the two newspapers, as was the office’s custom at the time, i.e., to send the papers lists of babies birth registrations, of the birth event which at its source was only based on the false sworn testimony of the grandmother or mother. If the mother was not in Hawaii at the time, the grandmother may have even forged Stanley Ann (nee Dunham) Obama’s signature on the affidavit since there is no independent corroborative evidence that Stanley Ann Dunham Obama was even in Hawaii in Aug 1961. There are on pre-natal care records or post-natal care records for Obama with any doctor, nurse, or mid-wife in Hawaii. There is no record of Stanley Ann Dunham Obama being in HI or anywhere in the USA from circa the very early spring of 1961 until she shows up in Seattle WA with her infant child in late Aug or early Sep 1961. Thus the birth notices in the newspapers are not independent data; they came from the same source, the false sworn statements from the mother and/or grandmother that the child Obama II was born in Hawaii, that is – registered as born at the grandparents home in HI with no independent third-party witnesses or medical attendants, when he was actually not born in HI. HI birth registration laws were so lax back then that this was easily done. Few if any would question such a registration back then.
Thus under this narrative the birth records in the vaults in Hawaii may be simply sworn affidavits of the mother and grandmother saying Obama was born at home with no witnesses, all based on lies and fraud, which seems to be a common occurrence with Mr. O’s entire life. Obama’s birth may be REGISTERED as having occurred in Hawaii, but he was not physically born there. And any current information currently in the records of the Health Dept in HI may have been added via later amendments upon Obama’s adoption by Lolo Soetoro or amended by Obama himself as a politically well connected adult (a U.S. Senator). Such adult amendments would permitted by law to correct or “flesh out” the original limited (and likely falsified) record, especially from an adult with a powerful law firm backing his political aspirations and to help him. Or as has been alleged by many, when Obama sought high political national office, additional forged documents were secreted into the HI Health Dept records to protect Obama the presidential contender to cover-up his birth registration fraud and other birth registration and certificate fraud that is alleged to be going on in HI similar to what was uncovered and exposed in Hudson County NJ.
Also there is this to consider, a couple years into Obama II’s early life, he may have been legally adopted by Lolo Soetoro in Hawaii (with those records hidden to us like many other records for Obama). Lolo was the 2nd husband of Stanley Ann Dunham Obama. Thus, Obama’s legal name of record in the Hawaiian system is now still Barry Soetoro or Soebarkah, or something else. Thus Obama cannot show the world what Hawaiian authorities are sending him and thus the need to forge and alter documents before proffering them to the world via the internet images to conceal from the public what was in the original records and how they got there AND the fact that there have been amendments made at various times. Possibly he was quietly and secretly working to have his named changed back to Barack Hussein Obama II in the Hawaii birth records system circa 2007-2009 – even having an amended birth certificate entered into the Hawaiian Health Department system to support Obama’s own self-created life narrative. That would allow the HI authorities to say in a carefully parsed and worded statement that the “birth records” in their possession match the data that Obama has put out. It may now match for key points in Obama’s created life narrative, but it did not prior to Obama probably amending his birth records in the HI system (i.e., whatever original was filed in 1961 and subsequent adoption changes made a few years later). He likely decided to file the amended birth record after he decided to run for President. Thus one would expect to find more than one amendment of the his original birth registration which was likely a falsified registration using the very lax birth registration laws in HI. Also notice that the HI authorities never say that the PDF document on the White House servers is an identical 100% true and correct copy of exactly what they have in their birth record system in HI. The HI authorities are into this cover-up for Obama up to their eyeballs but they still are trying to maintain plausible deniability by carefully parsing their statements and letters to those who inquire and those that they choose to answer and not just ignore.
When the truth and facts do finally come out, it will be interesting to see how close this suggested narrative using the facts, data, statements, which we now have access to from two sides of the world, which I have analyzed as an experienced genealogist and composed this narrative to fit that data in hand thus far, actually fits the reality of what happened back in the spring and summer of 1961.
This suggested narrative is thus hereby offered to the world to explain events and facts as revealed thus far. It is subject to change as new facts emerge. Questions, comments, and feedback are welcome … OBOT [Obama Zombie Robot, aka OZBOT] disinformation and misinformation spreading types excepted of course. The OBOTS are reminded to re-read the blog rules near the bottom of the right frame.
