The anti-truth “mainstream” media (newspapers, Internet and boob tube) as well as cable tv anchor hosts like shallow Sean Hannity, Beck and O’Reilly, smugly believe the issue Obama/Soetoro’s dual citizenship is somehow going to go away based on the release of “the” birth certificate, April 27, 2011, by the usurper in the White House. Wishful thinking for all of them who have no regard for the U.S. Constitution and the right of the American people to know whether or not a presidential candidate is legally eligible to run.
Despite all the ballyhoo on the networks, radio and Internet about the “new” long form birth certificate being end of discussion, none of those bastions of the truth from anchors on ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, CNN, all the web sites and of course, the “fair and balanced” FOX News Network, has touched the issue of the latest document being an obvious forgery.
The problem with Obama/Soetoro’s citizenship has now festered to the near breaking point. A boil oozing puss and a putrid stench that will have to be addressed in the near future. Had the gutless cowards in the Outlaw Congress done their solemn duty, January 9, 2009, and stopped the electoral college vote then and there, we would not be here today. No presidential candidate who was in Congress that day will ever get my vote because he/she didn’t have the courage to stand up and begin the process of stopping the vote and proceeding with an investigation for a massive controversy all of them knew was burning across this country. That includes my congressman when he runs again in 2012, who sat there like a stuffed dummy.

Beyond surviving the current political madness in Washington, the American people have no greater task ahead than to insure themselves that another Barack Hussein Obama can never again hold political power in our country.
When the Founding Fathers met in Philadelphia in September 1787 to sign the final draft of the U.S. Constitution, the physical scars of the War of Independence from Great Britain were still visible all around them and a deep-seated animosity toward all things British colored every aspect of their daily lives. So is it even remotely conceivable that just five years and eleven months after the British surrendered at Yorktown, the Founders would have presented to the states for ratification a Constitution that would allow an individual with divided loyalties – e.g., an individual with dual US-British citizenship – to serve as president or vice president of the United States? It is not, and they did not.
In order to forestall that eventuality the Framers included a provision… Article II, Section 4… requiring that candidates for president and vice president be at least thirty five years of age, that they have been a resident of the United States for at least 14 years, and that they be natural born U.S. citizens, owing allegiance to no foreign power because of the circumstances of birth.
Expressing the prevailing concerns of the time, Alexander Hamilton wrote in the Federalist Papers, “These most deadly adversaries of republican government (cabal, intrigue, etc.) might actually have expected to make their approach from more than one quarter, but chiefly from the desire in foreign powers to gain an improper ascendant in our councils. How could they better gratify this than by raising a creature of their own to the chief magistracy of the Union?”
In recent columns we have discussed the controlling legal authority, under U.S., British, and Kenyan law, necessary to determine Barack Obama’s eligibility to serve as President of the United States.
If we can agree that Obama’s father, a citizen of Kenya, then a British colony, was a British subject at the time of his birth, a fact that Obama himself has attested to on numerous occasions, it is evident that, under Part 2, Section 5 of the British Nationality Act of 1948, Obama was born with automatic British citizenship “by decent” from his father. Thus, it is an inescapable fact that Obama held dual US-British citizenship from the date of his birth, August 4, 1961, until December 12, 1963, the day that Kenya won its independence from Great Britain.
However, Article VI, Section 87(2) of the Kenyan Constitution states that “Every person who, having been born outside Kenya, is on 11th December, 1963 a citizen of the United Kingdom and Colonies (Obama Jr.), or a British protected person, shall, if his father becomes, or would but for his death have become a citizen of Kenya by virtue of subsection (1), become a citizen of Kenya on 12th December, 1963.”
Therefore, setting aside the possibility that Obama MAY HAVE acquired Indonesian citizenship when his mother married Indonesian Lolo Soetoro and moved to Jakarta in 1967, it is clear that Obama held dual US-Kenyan citizenship from December 12, 1963, the date of Kenyan independence, until at least his 21st birthday on August 4, 1982, when he claims to have been a student at Columbia University in New York.
In either event, Barack Obama is clearly not a “natural born” U.S. citizens and is, therefore, ineligible to serve in the office he occupies. So how did we manage to get ourselves into this mess? Three successive systemic failures combined to provide us with a usurper president.

THE FACTS, THE LAW, THE INESCAPABLE CONCLUSION
A Legal Analysis of Obama’s Citizenship status by Jane Menta
(Dec. 23, 2009) — According to the official British Consular Registry Stipulations, the British Nationality Act of 1948 and of 1981, Kenya Constitution, and the Kenya Independence Act of 1963 Barack Hussein Obama was born a British subject, and is a British Citizen to this day.
To ascertain this more exactly, I wrote to Claire McIntosh, who works in Nationality and Consular Registration Section, of the British Foreign & Commonwealth Office.
In her letter to me, of Dec. 11, 2009, she explained the laws applicable to Barack Hussein Obama’s birth:
“IF Barack Obama, Sr was born in Kenya Colony: President Obama born in Hawaii on August 4th, 1963, under The British Nationality Act of 1948, became a Section 5(1) Citizen of the United Kingdom and Colonies by virtue of his birth (born after 1 January 1949 outside UK and Colonies to a CUKC father). This entitlement is by descent and cannot be passed on;
On the provision of the Kenyan Independence Act 1963, which came into affect on 12 December 1963 President Obama became a Kenyan Citizen on that day as he was:
“…a) a person who
i) was a CUKC or British Protected Person immediately before independence; and
ii) was born in the former colony or protectorate; and
iii) had a parent born in the former colony or protectorate.
b) a person born outside Kenya who was a CUKC or a British protected person and whose father possessed (or would but for his death have possessed) the three qualifications listed in the bullet points above…””
Let’s take a journey down the Barack Hussein Obama, Jr., British Citizenship Timeline:
IN 1961 BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA, JR., WAS BORN A BRITISH CITIZEN BY DESCENT
Let’s apply the The British Consular Registry’s criteria for classification as a British subject under the British Nationality Act of 1948 Section 5(1) of the United Kingdom and Colonies for one who would be qualified as a “British Citizen By Descent:”
Q. 1. Was Barrack Hussein Obama, Sr. born in Kenya Colony?
Q. 2. Was Barack Obama, Jr. born after 1 January, 1949?
Ergo: Barack Hussein Obama was a “British Citizen by descent” on Aug. 4, 1961.
“Dear George (Washington), Strangest thing! We have a British Citizen as putative President!”
We know you fought a bloody war for American Independence against the British, and, but, well, umm….”
IN 1963 BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA, JR., ALSO BECAME A CITIZEN OF KENYA
The Kenya Constitution (87) states that a person born of a father who becomes a Kenyan Citizen shall also become a Citizen of Kenya, and The Kenya Constitution (97) prohibits dual citizenship for adults but not so for children.
Q. 3. Did Barack Hussein Obama, Sr., become a Citizen of Kenya?
A. — Yes, Barack Hussein Obama, Sr. became a Citizen of Kenya, as did his son Barack Hussein Obama, Jr., on 12 December, 1963.
Barack Hussein Obama, Sr. also was a Senior Economist for the Kenyan Government.
IN 1963 BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA, JR., REMAINED A BRITISH CITIZEN BY DESCENT EVEN WHEN HE BECAME A CITIZEN OF KENYA IN 1963
The Kenya Independence Act of 1963 Section 3(2) defines persons who retain citizenship of United Kingdom and Colonies although becoming citizens of Kenya if their parent was born in Kenya Colony:
Q. 4. Was Barack Hussein Obama, Sr. born in Kenya Colony?
A. — Yes, Barack Obama Sr. born in Kenya Colony of the British Empire. Further, Hussein Onyango Obama, Barack Obama, Jr.’s grandfather, was born in Kenya British Protectorate in 1895 and was a British Protected Person under British Nationality and Status Act 1914 by virtue of his birth in a Protectorate at his birth.
IN 1966 OR 1967 WAS BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA, JR. ADOPTED BY LOLO SOETORO THUS ACQUIRING INDONESIAN CITIZENSHIP?
If Lolo Soetoro adopted Obama at age five or younger, Obama would automatically have become an Indonesian citizen per Indonesia’s laws in the 1960’s, which stipulated any child aged five or younger adopted by an Indonesian father is immediately granted Indonesian citizenship upon completion of the adoption process.
Q. 5. Was Obama, Jr. adopted by Lolo Soetoro at or before the age of 5? Was the adoption recognized by Indonesia?
A. — Unknown. If yes to both questions, he would have become an Indonesian citizen only while in Indonesia because Indonesian law then did not recognize dual citizenship, but U.S. law would still recognize Obama as an American citizen (but not a natural born citizen). If no to either question, then Obama, Jr.’s citizenship while living in Indonesia would have been whatever it had been prior. An Indonesian public school did recognize “Barry” as an Indonesian Citizen.
ON Aug. 4, 1979 Did BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA, JR. REVOKE HIS BRITISH CITIZENSHIP?
Q. 6. Did Barack Hussein Obama, Jr., after the age of 18 and of sound mind fill out a declaration to revoke his British Citizenship?
A. — There is no record or statement to the effect that Barack Hussein Obama, Jr. ever revoked his British Citizenship at any time at or after the age of 18. Therefore in law, we must presume he has not.
ON AUG. 4, 1982 DID BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA, JR.’s KENYAN CITIZENSHIP EXPIRE?
To keep Kenyan Citizenship from expiring after the age of 21, a person must swear an oath of allegiance to Kenya and revoke all other citizenships (Kenya does not recognize dual citizenship for adults), between the ages of 21-23.
Q. 7. Did Barack Hussein Obama, Jr., swear an oath of allegiance to Kenya between the ages of 21 to 23?
A. — Unknown. Obama states on factcheck.org and fightthesmears.com that he never swore an oath of allegiance to Kenya. However, Obama did visit Kenya in 1982 at the age of 21, after his father died. During such a visit he could have sworn such an oath.
IN 1983 BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA, JR., A BRITISH-CITIZEN-BY-DESCENT, BECAME A “BRITISH OVERSEAS CITIZEN” (BOC) AND REMAINS SUCH TO THIS DAY
Hussein Obama, Jr. became a “British Overseas Citizen” under the British Nationality Act of 1981.
Q. 8. Was Barack Hussein Obama, Jr., prior to 1983, a British Citizen by Descent?
A. — Yes, Barack Obama, Jr. was a British Citizen by Descent and thus became a British Overseas Citizen in 1983.
Obviously, a “Natural Born” U.S. Citizen Means Born In-Country to Two US Citizen Parents !
According to Article II of the Constitution, only a “Natural Born Citizen” of the US is eligible for the presidency. Since a Natural Born Citizen, being born in-country to two US citizen parents, obviously cannot possibly have any other allegiances or citizenship ties to any other country than the USA by birthplace or by blood, this is why the term requires no statutory definition or laws. For indeed, a Natural Born Citizen, is naturally a born Citizen, not artificially constructed through statute. Article II specifically precludes statutory born Citizens as being eligible for the presidency. The reason for this is that in every case, a statutory born Citizen has some other ties to another nation whether by birthplace or by blood. In the case of Barack Hussein Obama, Jr., in no variation of birthplace, statutory US citizenship by birth, adoption, or oath of citizenship circumstance can he ever be a Natural Born Citizen, nor can he ever be considered lawfully eligible for the presidency of these United States.
