Unlike Barack Hussein Obama aka Barry Soetoro, I can document my American Heritage
The COLB posted by the DailyKos, Fight the Smears, and FactCheck is a forgery.
The forged COLB is part and parcel of the fabricated history of Barack Hussein Obama, and that was a made up fairy tale and that is what people were sold and they brought- hook, line, and sinker.
As I have posted prior from Thomas Jefferson
“On every question of construction, carry ourselves back to the time when the Constitution was adopted, recollect the spirit manifested in the debates, and instead of trying what meaning may be squeezed out of the text, or invented against it, conform to the probable one in which it was passed.” —Thomas Jefferson to William Johnson, 1823
That spirit that Thomas Jefferson spoke of, we look at the United States Supreme Court in following case The Venus, 12 U.S. (8 Cranch) 253, 1814
Vattel, is more explicit and more satisfactory on it [CITIZENSHIP ISSUES] than any other whose work has fallen into my hands, [Vattel] says, the citizens are the members of the civil society; bound to this society by certain duties, and subject to its authority, they equally participate in its advantages. The natives, or indigenes, are those born in the country, of parents who are citizens.
Another quote that needs to be stated is the following;
The American’s Creed
by William Tyler Page
“I believe in the United States of America as a government of the people, by the people, for the people; whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed, a democracy in a republic, a sovereign Nation of many sovereign States; a perfect union, one and inseparable; established upon those principles of freedom, equality, justice, and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes.”
I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it, to support its Constitution, to obey its laws, to respect its flag, and to defend it against all enemies.
Written 1917, accepted by the United States House of Representatives on April 3, 1918.
We already have the legal definition of what a "Natural Born Citizen" means, the Framers of the Constitution used Vattel's Laws of Nations.
I am sure you will know who Ben Franklin is;
Benjamin Franklins (a signer of our Constitution) letter to Charles W.F. Dumas, December 1775 I am much obliged by the kind present you have made us of your edition of Vattel. It came to us in good season, when the circumstances of a rising state make it necessary frequently to consult the Law of Nations. Accordingly, that copy which I kept (after depositing one in our own public library here, and send the other to the College of Massachusetts Bay, as you directed) has been continually in the hands of the members of our congress, now sitting, who are much pleased with your notes and preface, and have entertained a high and just esteem for their author? Hence what does Vattel say about "Natural Born Citizen"?
§ 212. Citizens and natives. The citizens are the members of the civil society; bound to this society by certain duties, and subject to its authority, they equally participate in its advantages. The natives, or natural-born citizens, are those born in the country, of parents who are citizens. As the society cannot exist and perpetuate itself otherwise than by the children of the citizens, those children naturally follow the condition of their fathers, and succeed to all their rights. The society is supposed to desire this, in consequence of what it owes to its own preservation; and it is presumed, as matter of course, that each citizen, on entering into society, reserves to his children the right of becoming members of it. The country of the fathers is therefore that of the children; and these become true citizens merely by their tacit consent. We shall soon see whether, on their coming to the years of discretion, they may renounce their right, and what they owe to the society in which they were born. I say, that, in order to be of the country, it is necessary that a person be born of a father who is a citizen; for, if he is born there of a foreigner, it will be only the place of his birth, and not his country. QUOTE: natural-born citizens, are those born in the country, of parents who are citizens.
Therfore regardless of where Barack Obama was born, Hawaii, Kenya, The Washington Monument, The Oval Office, by the simple fact and admission that Obama's father was a foreign national, disqualifies Obama from being a "Natural Born Citizen". Natural Born Citizenship is a REQUIREMENT as per the Constitution, and not a mere suggestion. FACT!
