The debate over Barack Hussein Obama II’s citizenship should not be confused with the computer edited copy of the Birth Certificate that he falsely released as authentic. BHO II is a United States Citizen, natural born, because he acquired his citizenship from his mother.
There are only two kinds of US citizens, both enjoying the same rights and privileges save one, the chance to become the President. These are ‘natural born’ and ‘naturalized’. Only a natural born citizen can become the US President.
‘Natural Born‘ citizens acquire their citizenship at birth from;
- Being born in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof
- Being born in the United States to a Native American, Eskimo, Aleutian, or other aboriginal tribe.
- Being born outside the US and its outlying possessions to TWO American citizens
- Being born outside the US and its outlying possessions to One American citizen and One national (i.e. Puerto Rico, American Samoa, etc)
- Being born in an outlying possession to One American citizen
- Being born to unknown parents and found within the US before the age of 5
- Being born outside the geographical limits of the United States and its outlying possessions of parents one of whom is an alien, and the other a citizen of the United States who, prior to the birth of such person, was physically present in the United States or its outlying possessions for a period or periods totaling not less than five years, at least two of which were after attaining the age of fourteen years
- Being born outside the US and outlying possessions to an unwed American mother, or unwed American father who in writing acknowledges the paternity of the child and agrees to financially support the child until 18.
‘Naturalized‘ citizens acquire their citizenship via Oath;
- to support the Constitution of the United States
- to renounce and abjure absolutely and entirely all allegiance and fidelity to any foreign prince, potentate, state, or sovereignty of whom or which the applicant was before a subject or citizen
- to support and defend the Constitution and the laws of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic
- to bear true faith and allegiance to the same
- to bear arms on behalf of the United States when required by the law
BHO II is a Natural Born Citizen from either number 7 or 8. Ann Dunham was an American of 18 when she delivered BHO II and technically she was unwed since BHO I was already married when he made his marriage vows to Ann.
So while BHO II released a non-authentic Birth Certificate, his citizenship, natural born, can easily be proven. However, the question still remains, why did he release an edited copy of his Birth Certificate?
The End is FAR
