Blast From Past (2012): 100% Proof Rick Santorum Born a Dual-Citizen and Does Not Have Sole Allegiance at Birth to the USA and thus is Not a Natural Born Citizen to Constitutional Standards. His Father Aldo was an Italian Citizen when Rick Was Born and Only perfected his naturalization and citizenship to the U.S. in 1961 3 yrs after Rick was born in 1958. Rick Thus Inherited His Father’s Italian Citizenship from His Father When Rick was Born. Father Aldo Did Not Renounce His Italian Citizenship Until 1961

Rick Santorum is NOT a Natural Born Citizen of the United States to Constitutional Standards since his Italian born father had not yet taken the oath of allegiance to the USA and renounced his Italian citizenship when Rick was born in 1958. Click on image for evidence.
Aldo Santorum Took U.S. Oath of Allegiance in 1961
Aldo Santorum took the citizenship Oath of Allegiance to the U.S. in 1961 three years after Rick Santorum was born.

Given Rick Santorum’s Announcement Today 27 May 2015 Declaring His Candidacy for President, Below is a Blast From the Past From Oct 2012.

Also a Question: Has Rick Santorum Renounced His Italian Citizenship Gained at His Birth From His Italian Citizen Father Similar to Ted Cruz Renouncing His Canadian Citizenship Gained at His Birth Via His Cuban/Canadian Father? If They Gained Basic U.S. Citizenship Via Their Respective U.S. Citizen Mother’s Did They Not Also Gain Basic Citizenship in a Foreign Country via Their Father’s Foreign National Citizenship?  Ted Cruz Had at Birth Another Citizenship Issue Since He Had a ‘Jus Soli’ Nationality Law Issue Since He Was Born in Canada. But Both Cruz and Santorum Gained Dual Citizenship and Dual Allegiance at Birth Via ‘Jus Sanquinis’ Nationality Laws From Their Respective Fathers Who Had Un-renounced Foreign Citizenship and Their Respective U.S. Citizen Mothers.

From Oct 2012:  100% Proof Rick Santorum was born a Dual-Citizen with Dual-Allegiances (Italy and USA) and thus is Not a Natural Born Citizen of the United States, i.e., a person who was born with ‘Unity of Citizenship and Sole Allegiance‘ to the USA at birth. Rick’s father who was born in Italy and was an immigrant from Italy took the oath of allegiance to the USA and formally perfected his naturalized U.S. Citizenship and renounced his Italian Citizenship in 1961 which was 3 yrs after Rick was born in 1958. Prior to 1961 Aldo Santorum was still an Italian citizen which Aldo still had not yet renounced. Thus when Rick was born he inherited Italian citizenship from his Italian born and still as of 1958 Italian citizen father Aldo.

With multiple candidates for President lacking constitutional eligibility “natural born Citizen” status, we thus have another reason the Republican Party has been trying to abrogate and ignore the “natural born Citizen” clause instead of trying to legally amend it out of the U.S. Constitution which would be very difficult to do once the People learned and fully understood the critical national security implications of removing that clause as to who can be the President and Commander in Chief of our military. Obama is an obvious example of the national security implications of having a person who is not a natural born Citizen being seated in the Oval Office.  It is obvious the the politicians in both political parties are perfectly willing to put their personal political ambition and party politics above the U.S. Constitution and then ignore We the People when we ask them what the heck is going on.  The Republican Party has been in cahoots with the Democrat Party to ignore the U.S. Constitution and thus we got the debacle and constitutional crisis we are in now with an illegal, unconstitutional person Obama residing in the White House.  When people ask why the Republican Party is silent on the lack of natural born Citizenship of Obama answer to them — Marco Rubio, Rick Santorum, Bobby Jindal, [and Ted Cruz] … and likely other (possibly Nikki Haley) upcoming Republican stars who are NOT natural born Citizens of the United States to constitutional standards … and whom the RNC wants to run for President of VP anyway.

Rick Santorum, Marco Rubio, Bobby Jindal [and Ted Cruz] are clearly not constitutionally eligible to serve as President or VP and yet the Republican Party puts them forward and protects them. And people ask why the Republican Party and their supporters in the major media don’t want to discuss Obama’s lack of natural born Citizenship. This is why. Neither political party wants Article II Section 1 Clause 5 of the U.S. Constitution enforced. Both parties are betraying the U.S. Constitution for their own political goals and power. Party politics trumps the Constitution in their eyes. George Washington warned us about this. And his warning has come to pass.

Also, read more about Obama’s ID crimes and his constitutional ineligibility here:  http://www.scribd.com/protectourliberty/collections/  When will we return to the rule of law and enforce our identity theft protection laws and U.S. Constitution in regards to Obama the Identity-Fraud-in-Chief residing in the White House?

This is NOT about politics or anything else but the U.S. Constitution, the fundamental law of our land. If we lose the full force and effect of every word in it, we lose our constitutional republic and our rule of law. Amend it via a properly brought and approved constitutional amendment or respect and obey it.  Politicians and the political parties should not try to dissemble the true original intent, understood meaning, and purpose of the words chosen and used therein when the founders and framers wrote them in the founding era just to achieve some modern day political party agenda and goal.

IS MR. CHARLES EVANS HUGHES A “NATURAL BORN CITIZEN” WITHIN THE MEANING OF THE CONSTITUTION?

Breckinridge Long – A “Natural Born Citizen” Within the Meaning of the Constitution


Page 1 of 10

“Whether Mr. Hughes is, or is not, a “natural born” citizen within the meaning of the
Constitution, so as to make him eligible or ineligible, to assume the office of President,
presents an interesting inquiry.

He was born in this country and is beyond question “native born.” But is there not a
distinction between “native born” and “natural born”? At the time he was born his father and
mother were subjects of England. His father had not then been naturalized. The day after Mr.
Hughes was born his father had a right, as an English subject, to go to the British consul, at
New York, and to present his wife and infant and to claim any assistance he might need from
the consul as the representative of the English government.

If war had broken out between this government and England this government would have
had a right to interne the father, the mother and the son as subjects of an enemy power.
The Constitution of the United States puts a particular qualification upon those who shall
become President and Vice-President. For all other offices it requires that they be “citizens of
the United States,” but for the Presidency and Vice-Presidency it requires that they be
“Natural Born citizens.” The word “natural” means “of the nature of”; “naturally a part of”;
“by the laws of nature an integral part of” a system. Following that line of thought, a “natural
born” citizen would be one who was naturally, at his birth, a member of the political society;
naturally, a part of the political system into which he was born; by the laws of nature a citizen
of the society into which he was born. It would mean, further, that no other government had
any claim upon him; that his sole allegiance was to the government into which he had been
born and that that government was solely, at the time, responsible for his protection. “Native
born” does not mean quite the same thing. He might be born in a country under conditions
similar to the conditions under which Mr. Hughes was born, and subsequently become a
citizen of that Country. In that case, after he became a citizen, he would be a “native born”
citizen, but he would not have been a “natural born” citizen. From the instant of his birth this
government would not be solely responsible for his protection.

Mr. Hughes was born before the adoption of the Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution,
so the status of his citizenship must be considered as under the laws existing prior to the time
of the adoption of that Amendment.

Breckinridge Long – A “Natural Born Citizen” Within the Meaning of the Constitution
Page 2 of 10

The only reference in the Constitution to the subject (except that Section specifying the
qualifications for President) is that Congress shall have the power to make uniform laws to
provide for naturalization. Congress under that authority enacted the following law: “The
children of persons who have been duly naturalized under any law of the United States, being
under the age of twenty-one years at the time of the naturalization of their parents, shall, if
dwelling in the United States, be considered as citizens thereof.” That Statute says that
children born of persons who have been duly naturalized become citizens, but become so by
virtue of the act of the parent. That is, they become naturalized citizens. They are citizens by
operation of law. They were not born so, but, because of the act of their father, are invested
with all the rights of citizens. If they are born in this country and their father subsequently
becomes naturalized, they then, upon the naturalization of the father, become citizens. After
becoming citizens they are “native born” citizens; but they are not “natural born citizens.”
That is, they are not born, in the nature of things and by the laws of nature, a citizen of this
Republic. If the father becomes naturalized before the birth of the child and is at the time of
the birth of the child a citizen of the United States, then the child is a “natural born” citizen.
But in the case of Mr. Hughes the father was not naturalized at the time the son was born, and
was at that time a subject of England. How could the son be a “natural born” citizen of the
United States? If you had been born in England of American parents, would it be necessary
for you to be naturalized if you came to this country to reside? No. If he, born in this country
of English parents, had returned to England to reside, would it have been necessary for him to
be naturalized there? No. If it was not necessary for him to be naturalized in England, would
he be a “natural born citizen” of the United States? ….. “

Also watch these video to learn more about the true meaning “natural born Citizen” per constitutional scholar Herb Titus: Pt1: http://youtu.be/esiZZ-1R7e8  and Pt2: http://youtu.be/xoaZ8WextxQ

Barack Obama, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, Bobby Jindal, and Nikki Haley are clearly not eligible per the original meaning and intent of the “natural born Citizen” term in the presidential eligibility clause in Article II of the U.S. Constitution. To use a man-made statute or law, amendment, or treaty which makes one only a “Citizen” of the United States, either at birth or otherwise, means one would have had to be alive at the time of the creation of the Constitution. Read the actual words in the Constitution: “No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.”  After those original Citizens were gone it took a “natural born Citizen” to be eligible, that is, the children of Citizens of the United States, plural — two Citizen parents (naturalized after immigration to the USA or born here) when one was born in the USA. Any law or Act of Congress cited making one simply a “Citizen at Birth” or “Citizen by Birth” , or simply a born Citizen, is not sufficient. Such laws do not address or supersede or even mention Article II of the U.S. Constitution. Such laws do not even have the words/adjectives “natural born” in them.  A “natural born Citizen” is created by the laws of nature and nature’s God, governed by the facts of nature at the person’s birth, not the laws of men. The vast majority of U.S. Citizens are “natural born Citizens”.  It is from those ranks that we are constitutionally supposed to choose our Presidents and Vice Presidents.
