RE: Illegal presidency of Obama
This letter is to re-raise the issue that has not yet been fully addressed and considered by its merits. In your reply to inquiries on the illegal presidency of Obama, your standardized letter contains legal and factual mistakes stating that
"President Barack Obama was born on August 4, 1961 in Honolulu, Hawaii as a naturally born United States citizen".
This statement is legally false because the "Natural born citizenship" cannot follow from the place of birth alone, nor is it regulated by the US Code § 1401, "Nationals and citizens of United States at birth". Although the concept "Natural born citizen" is not defined in the US Constitution, historically it has been always understood as a two-fold criterion. In order to be a natural born citizen (Emerich de Vattel, The Law of Nations (1758), Chapter 19, §212):
- A person must be born to parents who both are the US citizens, and
- A person must be born on American soil.
The latest precedent when exactly this definition was applied took place as recently as in 2008. The Senate examined validity of candidacy of McCain (Senate resolution 511, presented by Sen. Leahy, April 2008, accepted unanimously). In particular the Resolution stated:
Whereas John Sidney McCain, III, was born to American citizens …, be it Resolved, that John Sidney McCain, III, is a "natural born Citizen" under Article II, Section 1, of the Constitution of the United States.
(The Resolution clearly refers to the parents in plural).
You did confirm that the father of Obama was a Kenyan citizen. Therefore disregarding Obama's birth place, he is not a natural born citizen at least because only his mother was a US citizen, not both parents.
Moreover, according to his official biography, since his childhood Obama was registered by his stepfather as an Indonesian citizen, and he traveled as such to Pakistan. Indonesian citizenship automatically relinquished his American citizenship – even if he were a natural born citizen to both American parents on American soil. Returning to America he could become only a naturalized citizen, never a natural born.
Finally (even if less importantly): it is not true, that he was born in Honolulu, Hawaii. Obama's grandmother Ms. Sarah Hussein Obama witnessed personally that he was delivered in Kenia. To make him a US citizen born in Kenya by US Code § 1401, the age of his mother ought to be 19 or more. And if she were, it would make Obama simply an American citizen, not a natural born American citizen anyway.
Therefore the presidency of Obama is illegal, and all his actions and nominations are void. The Congress and the people of America must recall or impeach him.
Failing to investigate all those circumstances before his nomination, before and after his election, and persisting in the denial thereof, you implicate yourself and the entire Congress in a criminal negligence and cover up of a gross violation of the Constitution of the United States. Violations such as this turn our great nation into a banana republic.
Concerned citizens like me will not rest until impeachment and congressional investigation of Obama are initiated and the necessary actions taken upon the uncovered truth.
