"Now, three years ago, I visited Kenya as the first sitting American president to come from Kenya."
I have no idea how that simple statement can be misconstrued.
If the fake news doesn’t report it, it never happened.
The media has completely buried this comment by Obama.
Easy enough. His ancestors came from Kenya.
Simple figure of speech.
He has admitted he is a muzzy, a gay, a pot smoker, and that he hates this country. When they tell you who they are, believe them.
Kenyan born senatorial hopeful...
...does that ring a bell?
Trump needs to put a cherry on top and show the truth. These vile lying maggots need to be exposed.
His horrible nasally voice sounded like a giant fart whenever he spoke .
My dad called him The Great Farter
Americans reference their heritage all the time. I always thought it was stupid, crediting your grandfathers move from Ireland as somehow impacting success a hundred years later.
If Obama said this, within the Context of US culture, it makes sense.
Sometimes people are a little too literal.
FNC recently surveyed the entire class where he supposedly went to college. Not one could remember even seeing him let alone knowing him. Not even those who were in he same course studies.
Isn’t it amazing that that was the end of it?
When will people stop calling me, or us, “Conspiracy theorists”
How much positive evidence does everyone want that we are right ?
You’re forgetting: AP 2004 FLASHBACK: Kenyan-Born Obama All Set for US Senate
Now, three years ago, I visited Kenya as the first sitting American president to come from Kenya.”
No surprise. We all knew the asshole was a phony, but in this case, Soros money won and saddled the country with the absolutely worst POTUS in history.
Agree - Obama has, factually, Kenyan ancestry and spent time growing up in Kenya (luvs himself some pahkeestahneees). It doesn’t matter at this point if he was a lawful citizen or not except for an asterisk in the history books.
Hi Beckwith, great to see you posting here , a noble reminder of all your work for which you have earned the thanks of Americans everywhere.
Certainly this statement cannot be misconstrued, but what we do not seem to comprehend is that Obama as a liberal fascist has absolute confidence that he can redefine history to suit him at whatever juncture.
And its our job to catch Obama at it, and expose him to all.
A pox on him and all of his deep state apparatchiks. I hope that the authorities initiate a RICO investigation against the Obama crime syndicate of racketeers.
Hes trolling his enemies. Frank Marshall Davis is his father.
Whatever and whoever this traitor is...is irrelevant. The criminal was the Greatest Fraud Ever on the American people. His supporting cast was on both sides of the aisle. Traitors all!
I saw the video several days ago and added oit to my klong list of Hussein’s claims or “slips” to be Moslem and his claims of Kenyan origin.
The SCOTUS has never directly ruled on the meaning of Article II, Section 1, Clause 5 of the constitution in regard to POTUS eligibility. But in SCOTUS casr wherin they have given a definition of what a NBC is, Minor vs Haperstatt, Wong Kim Ark vs US, Perkins vs Elg,) they defined an NBC as a person born of TWO, count them TWO citizen parents (the parents dont have to be NBC) and born in one of the states of the Union, or the territories.
The authors of the 14th amendment, in the Congressional debates on the matter, also defined an NBC in the same manner. Rep. Bimgham and Senator Jacob Howard were the principal authors of the 14th amendment. Here is a quote from Howard which clearly spelled out the intent of the 14th Amendment in 1866, which was to define citizenship. He stated: “Every person born within the limits of the United States, and subject to their jurisdiction, is by virtue of natural law and national law a citizen of the United States. This will not, of course, include persons born in the United States who are foreigners, aliens, who belong to the families of ambassadors or foreign ministers accredited to the Government of the United States, but will include every other class of persons. It settles the great question of citizenship and removes all doubt as to what persons are or are not citizens of the United States. This has long been a great desideratum in the jurisprudence and legislation of this country.”
Until this matter is formally adjudicated by the Court, I will defer to their NBC stare decisis definitions. Obama and a host of others were not, are not, and can NEVER be constitutionally eligible to be POTUS.
Whatever one thinks what the meaning of Article II, Section 1, clause 5 is, it is clear that the adoption of the 14th amendment did not alter it in any constitutional sense. How else can you account for the fact that the constitution only specifies for the office of senator and representative citizenship for a period of 9 and 7 years respectively, while the constitution requires the POTUS, to be NATURALLY born, owing allegiance to no other country? That is the ONLY constitutional provision for NBC. Obviously, there is a singular distinction with regard to that office. Under Jamaican and Indian citizenship law, for instance, Kamala Harris, thru her parents, owed allegiance to both of those countries AT HER BIRTH. It was conferred upon her by those countries citizenship laws, just as valid as our own.
The framers of the constitution were patriarchs. (Yes I understand that is completely out of tune with modern sensibilities, but nonetheless it is true.) They believed that the citizenship of the FATHER was conferred upon his children. SCOUTUS incorporated in toto the ENTIRE 212th paragraph of Emerich De Vattels Law of Nations in their 1814 Venus merchantman case as they defined what an NBC is. Here is the money quote that Justice Livingstone that was cited when he wrote for the majority, 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.
I suspect the reason that many do not want this issue formally examined is that they wish to foster and enhance the globalist influence on the office of POTUS. The NBC requirement was never intended to be a guarantee of allegiance, but a safeguard against undue foreign influence on the office of POTUS, PARTICULARLY from a father owing allegiance to a foreign sovereignty. The oath of naturalization requires a formal and legal renunciation of any prior national allegiances.
Jennie Spencer-Churchill, known as Lady Randolph Churchill, was a natural born US citizen, and a British socialite, the wife of Lord Randolph Churchill and the mother of British Prime Minister Sir Winston Churchill.
Under US citizenship law at the time of Churchills birth, despite the fact that his mother was a NATURAL BORN US citizen, she could not transmit her US citizenship on to young Winston owing to her marriage to a foreign national, Sir Randolph Spencer Churchill, who was Winstons father. That would not be legally allowed until the passage of the Cable Act of 1922, well after Churchills birth in 1874. The Cable Act only confers citizenship, NOT NATURALLY BORN citizenship. It did not refer to, or alter the meaning of an Article II, Sec. 1, clause 5 natural born citizen in any way.
Churchill was granted HONORARY US citizenship by an act of Congress on 9 April 1963. It was understood that his birth to a an NBC citizen US mother in Great Britain did not make him a citizen by law.
This is just one more indication of the fact that Obama, Cruz, Rubio OR Harris can NEVER be constitutionally eligible to the office of POTUS. We need to have this issue finally adjudicated by SCOTUS for the first time in US history, and finally get a definitive answer one way or another.
We have enough naturally born anti-american, anti-constitutional cultural marxists in our country now who aspire to be POTUS. I say lets eliminate all those who dont even meet the basic Article II criteria. Winnow the opposition.
