But they are NOT Natural Born Citizens!
Will we TRAMPLE the Constitution yet AGAIN?
Marco Rubio, Bobby Jindal and Ted Cruz - ELIGIBLE?
"There are two ends of the spectrum as which just about everyone agrees: (1) A person born in the United States to parents both of whom are United States citizens is a “natural born Citizen”; and (2) a person born outside the United States to parents neither of whom is a United States citizen is not a “natural born Citizen” even if citizenship later is obtained through naturalization. These are what law professor Lawrence Solum refers to as “cases of inclusion and exclusion.
Rubio, Jindal and Cruz, as did Obama, fall between those points of inclusion and exclusion. Rubio and Jindal were born in the United States to parents neither of whom was a United States citizen at the time; Cruz was born in Canada to parents one of whom (his mother) was a United States citizen.
Under the law existing at the time of their birth, each became a citizen of the United States at birth. Rubio and Jindal by the 14th Amendment, Cruz by statute.
Article II, Section 1, of the Constitution provides, in pertinent part (emphasis added):
No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.
NATURAL BORN CITIZEN "HAS" been defined - by the U.S. Senate in 2008!
In case you are in doubt about Natural Born Citizenship requirements - don't forget that in 2008 The US SENATE investigated Prez Candidate John McCain on HIS natural born status.Then Senators Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton sat on that hearing and signed SR 511 attesting to their findings on McCain and the definition of Natural Born Citizen.
READ Senate Resolution 511 wherein they defined McCain to be a "natural born citizen." They did this based upon the criteria that John McCain was found to have
1. Been born on American soil or a U.S. possession and
2. BOTH parents were American citizens at time of birth.
Marco Rubio, Bobby Jindal, Ted Cruz - COULD NOT hold up to the standards of SR 511.
Of course we STILL do not know if Barack Obama was even BORN in the United States.
1. No hospital ANYWHERE in the US will officially claim Obama's birth. Obama sent a letter to Kapiolani Hospital in Hawaii stating he was born there. The PDF (proven fraud) of a BC was posted by the White House on the official WH site stating he was born at Kapiolani - yet there is not even a plaque or a monument of any kind at the hospital claiming that Obama was born there and to date not a single hospital official has claimed it either.
2. Democrat (and friend of the Obama family) Gov. Neal Abercrombie ran on the campaign promise that he would personally produce Obama's Hawaii BC to "prove" he was born there. He was in office for four years and NEVER produced it - nor did he even handle it or see it - according to his own admission.
3. The Ambassador from Kenya, Obama's paternal grandmother, Obama's step sister - ALL claimed publicly that Obama was "born in Kenya." The Ambassador said, "everyone knows where he was born - in the exact village and place." His grandmother and step-sister said "I was present at the birth."
Funny - the ONLY people who "officially" and "publicly" claim that Obama was born in their country are people from Kenya.
4. Obama's own publishers - for 17 years - claimed in writing that Obama was "born in Kenya" and "raised in Hawaii." They changed their statement when he was running for President and the fact was pointed out by the alternative media.
5. Even IF he WAS born in Hawaii - the PDF BC that the White House placed on the internet shows that his father was not a citizen of the U.S. at the time of his birth. According to SR 511 - which Obama signed - Obama is NOT eligible to be President.
