Dual citizenship could force Thai leader from office
American Thinker ^ | 2/28/11 | Phil Boehmke

Posted on 02/28/2011 9:07:27 AM PST by westcoastwillieg

Late last week during a debate in Parliament, Thailand’s Prime Minister Abhisit Vejajjiva publically admitted his dual citizenship for the first time. The 46 year-old Thai/British citizen has been prime minister since December of 2008 (the youngest prime minister in nearly 60 years) after a political career that began with his election to Parliament at the youthful age of 27. Until last week Abhisit had successfully concealed his British citizenship.

In spite of overwhelming evidence that Obama is not a natural-born-citizen and does not meet the constitutional requirements to be president, our timid politicians have maintained a conspiracy of silence. This once great country has turned into a nation of wimps. Of the 535 members of congress not one has come forward and questioned Obama's eligibility.

Split allegiences are COMPLETELY inconsistent with the highest office in the land. An asian country can see that. But the standardbearer of democracy cannot?

This once great country has turned into a nation of wimps.


Because this once great nation has become an authoritarian police state, largely but by no means exclusively under Republican administrations. Both of the government parties have worked together like gandydancers in the past 22 years to nail down, curtail and interfere with traditional American liberties.

Ruby Ridge and Waco were both intended as object lessons for the general public, and even if they don’t go so far as to shoot your child in the back or your wife in the head or burn you alive, the power to tax is the power to destroy. No one wants to be the first to go down.

Nevertheless, the fall of Yugoslavia, Romania and the Soviet Union underscore the fact that Leviathan has feet of clay, and all tyrants eventually go the way of Ozymandias.

“...Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.”

Look, everyone knows that Thailand has a much more sound form of governance than our own. Cut our Congress some slack... /s

Now although that was meant as levity, the fact of the matter is..., our Congress is proving this very thing. And that is NO JOKE.

Even Obama’s big supporter Governor Abercrombie from his supposed birth state Hawaii, couldn’t come up with the goods. And he tried!

Congress snoozes on none the less.

And here I thought our government was better than that of any other nation. It turns out, ours appars to be more corrupt than at least one other nation.

Not a problem, because -- unlike James Madison et al. -- none of Thailand's founding fathers are known ever to have read Vattel's book.

Our Dual Citizen Presidency requires dark skin and kinky hair. It’s right there in the constitution. Today.

Hey, that bumper sticker needs a slight update:

Born a Brit, ALWAYS A BRIT, Not Legit!

And how has this been covered up?

Look here:

They IGNORE the British citizenship and only focus on the Kenyan citizenship.

The Kenyan constitution does have its new citizens in 1963 specifically KEEP their Commonwealth Citizenship (Chaper VI, section 95(1).

So Obama kept his British Citizenship even after Kenyan Independence. He never renounced it. He is TODAY a dual citizen.

I believe that King Bhumibol Adulyadej of Thailand holds American citizenship as he was born in Cambridge, Massachusetts while his father was attending school there and I dont believe he was in the USA with diplomatic immunity.

Example of the cover-up of the fact Obama retained his British Citizenship even after Kenya became independent. See why this has not surfaced....

By Gerry Nance:

“On December 12, 1963, with Kenya Independence, Barack Obama Sr. and Barack HusseinObama II lost UK Citizenship”

Here they just ignore the British Citizenship issue and only focus on the Kenyan.

By Paul R. Hollrah. He quotes parts of the Kenyan Constitution perfectly. But leaves out Section 95(1):

“Every person who. under this Constitution or an Act of Parliament. is a citizen of Kenya or who, under any law for {he time being in force in a country to which this section applies. is a citizen of that country shall, by virtue of that citizenship, have the status of a Commonwealth citizen.”

He read it, he quoted it. But chose to ignore the key clause that states you are still a Commonwealth citizen.

“FactCheck noted that Obama had indeed been a citizen of the United Kingdom and Colonies (CUKC) under British law, by virtue of his descent from a Kenyan father at a time when Kenya was a British colony, and lost CUKC citizenship and became a Kenyan citizen when that country gained independence in 1963.”

Interestingly, while Wikipedia directly says he lost his CUKC citizenship, the actual article from Factcheck is not that direct. Factcheck implies it but does DIRECTLY say it.

A blog, using Factcheck as source tries to address this. Then has to keep adding updates...

Our friends at the DailyKOS....They also ignore section 95(1)....

So you can see how the complexities of Obama’s citizenship are used to create even more smoke in the edibility issue. Obama did not ‘lose’ anything in 1963.

BTW, Mario nailed it back in 2009...

“What does this mean? Under the Kenyan Constitution, Obama is presumably no longer a Kenyan citizen because he did not renounce at age 21 his British citizenship and his U.S. citizenship (assuming he was born in the U.S.). Obama is still however a British citizen not only under English common law (in the words of Coke and Blackstone, a natural-born subject of the United Kingdom) but also under British citizenship statutes. Neither Kenya’s 1963 constitution nor any statute erased the consequences of the British common law and nationality statutes that were in effect at the time of Obama’s and his father’s birth. Obama’s continuing British citizenship is further confirmed by English law which provides that persons born in countries which were Colonies at the time when they were born are still British citizens. Hence, Obama continues to be a British citizen despite Kenya’s independence and new constitution.”

Why has the Media ignored the facts from these African newspapers??

The first article was from June, 2004

Here are 6 African Newspaper articles calling Obama “Kenyan-Born”


Notice the first article was from Sunday, June 27,................. “2004”

Historical News Articles and FactCheck Agree: Obama is “Kenyan-born”
Posted on October 18th, 2009 by David-Crockett

Sunday, June 27, “2004”

Kenya Sunday Standard headline-”Kenyan-born” Obama all set for US Senate

The Nigerian Observer-Americans will today go to the polls to elect their next President with Democratic Party candidate, Senator Barack Obama largely favoured to win. The “Kenyan-born” Senator will…”

USAfrica — “Kenyan-born” OBAMA makes history…wins presidential nomination of U. S. Democratic party; eyes on White House… — ” Little wonder then why “Kenyan-born” Barack Obama, America’s first Black President…” — “For Ghana, Obama’s visit will be a celebration of another milestone in African history as it hosts the first-ever “African-American President” on this presidential visit to the “continent of his birth”. The same article, with the same quote, appeared in

The Ghana Times — “So far, the odds favour the once underdog in American politics, Obama, the “African-American Senator” from Illinois state. A Congressional Quarterly (CQ) politics monitored on BBC put the “Kenyan born” American ahead of his rivel, John McCain.”

Isn’t it ironic? A third world country following their constitutional laws better than US, the shinning example to the world.
