Definitions are easy, they are found in the dictionary. Yet, millions of Americans remain stuck in a quagmire of dissenting views and alleged expert opinions over the simple term natural born citizen, one of only a few strict constitutional requirements for the highest office in our land, President and Commander-in-Chief.
According to dictionaries dating as far back as Webster’s 1828 Edition, the term natural born citizen has a very simple and specific common meaning, and according to the framers of the US Constitution, a very important distinction.
Natural – Pertaining to nature; produced or effected by nature, or by the laws of growth, formation or motion impressed on bodies or beings by divine power.Born – To be born, is to be produced or brought into life.Citizen – In the United States, a person, native or naturalized, who has the privilege of exercising the elective franchise, or the qualifications which enable him to vote for rulers, and to purchase and hold real estate.
Based upon the official definition of these words, we know immediately that the term natural born citizen is not based upon statute or any form of man-made law. It exists in nature, the result of natural law, by divine power, only able to be recognized or ignored by legislative process, but still inalienable via legal processes.
Many self-proclaimed experts insist that the US Constitution was written in some secret code, which can only be deciphered for the common folk, by legal scholars of the highest order. Yet on the basis of simple definitions, we know that if we are discussing any form of man-made law requiring the analysis of legal scholars, we are NOT discussing natural-born.
The term natural born citizen is of nature, not man-made law. The Constitution is written in plain and simple English, each word with a specific definition and meaning easily found in any English dictionary. Fortunately, not only legal scholars have access to dictionaries, making it possible for anyone who can read, to understand the Constitution, so long as they have a dictionary in hand.
After all, what good are unalienable rights that legal scholars are free to alienate via politically motivated interpretations?
Some self-appointed experts have gone so far as to intentionally twist history in an effort to reduce the meaning of natural born citizen to native born status, which is not the same thing and once again, you need only a dictionary to confirm.
Native - Pertaining to the place of birth; as native soil; native country; native graves.
As you can clearly see by proper definition, people focused only upon finding a real Hawaiian birth certificate for Barack Obama are focused on establishing only his native born status, his place of birth, not his natural born status.
A birth certificate is a product of man-made law. A document designed by governments to establish and record the bloodline, birth place, circumstance and vital statistics of an individual’s birth - A means of identifying and tracking that individual throughout life.
At best, it could only confirm that Obama’s stated birth father is his birth father of record, in which case, confirming what we already know, that Barack Obama Jr. is the son of a foreign national, and as such, is not a natural born citizen of the United States even if he is a native born citizen of Hawaii.
The historical foundation for the term natural born citizen found in Article II – Section I of our Constitution is the Law of Nations, as mentioned in Article 1 – Section 8 of our Constitution. An international treaty in existence during the forming of our nation, which established internationally recognized standards for what constitutes a sovereign nation and citizens’ rights.
Emerich de Vattel published a book on the Law of Nations in 1758. In Chapter 19, § 212. Under Of the citizens and natives, Vattel states very clearly what constitutes a natural born citizen of any sovereign nation, in three simple statements…and our framers borrowed the term.
1) 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.
2) The country of the fathers is therefore that of the children; and these become true citizens merely by their tacit consent.
3) I say, that, in order to be of the country, it is necessary that a person be born of a father who is a citizen; for, if he is born there of a foreigner, it will be only the place of his birth, and not his country.
As easy as one, two, three… it’s all about the natural birthrights of the father. Nothing else…
Barack Hussein Obama, Sr.
Barack Obama’s stated birth father was at no time in his life, a legal citizen of the United States. He was at all times throughout his life, a British subject and legal citizen of Kenya. As such, through natural birthright, Barack Obama succeeded to all of his father’s rights as a natural born citizen of Kenya, and at best a dual citizen of the United States with divided national loyalties through the bloodline of his mother, alleged to be a legal US citizen.
On this basis alone, Barack Hussein Obama, Jr. is indeed constitutionally ineligible for the office he currently holds and every member of congress and the Supreme Court is well aware. This explains why both Nancy Pelosi and the Democrat National Committee and the Democrat Party of Hawaii refused to certify Obama as “constitutionally eligible for office” in the 2008 election. He wasn’t, so they wouldn’t certify.
Dual and divided national loyalties is exactly what the framers were worried about and tried to avoid by carefully choosing the term natural born citizen as a condition for the highest office in our land. They were trying to stop dual citizens like Barack Obama from holding our most powerful political office.
However, lawyers, political elites and profiteering pundits are trying to rewrite the US Constitutional requirement for President and Vice President from natural born (bloodline of the father) to native born (place of birth). We know why the political left is doing it, making it possible for everyone “born on US soil” to become president, including anchor babies and replacing our foundation of natural law with man-made statute. But why is the political right helping the left by focusing on the native born issue of a missing birth certificate?
More importantly, why are so many citizens foolishly funding the effort to rewrite the definition of natural to mean native, by supporting organizations concerned only with Obama’s native born status when the answer to their question is found in every dictionary?
Simply stated, the answer to Obama eligibility can be found in the answer to that famous Ebonics question, “Who’s your daddy?”
If Barack Hussein Obama, Sr. is in fact Barack Obama’s real birth father, as he has stated repeatedly throughout his entire life, then Barack Jr. is NOT a natural born citizen of the United States and he cannot be President of the United States, at least constitutionally. No birth certificate necessary.
If Barack Hussein Obama, Sr. is NOT his real birth father, then a birth certificate may be helpful to answer who his real daddy might be. In this case, Barack Obama is a complete fraud and for this reason, he cannot remain President of the United States.

Either way, Barack Hussein Obama is definitely in the White House unconstitutionally. Get your dictionary out and check for yourself. The legal scholars and self-appointed experts are lying to you. The dictionary shall set the truth free! You don’t need legal experts to tell you what those three little words mean, you just need Webster.
Lawyers are still debating what the true meaning of “is” is… We already know the true meaning of natural born, so…
Barack, forget the missing birth certificate… WHO’S YOUR DADDY?
