Did You Know That Obama Isn’t The First U.S. President to Be Constitutionally Ineligible?

All U.S. Presidents & Eligibility: Grandfather Clause, Natural Born Citizen Clause, or Seated by Fraud

CDR Charles Kerchner (Ret) best explains the categories of citizenship according to Article II of the U.S. ConstitutionThey are:
Kerchner writes:
“The natural born Citizen clause was placed in the U.S. Constitution in regards to eligibility for President by the founders of our nation and framers of our Constitution specifically to bar persons in the future with foreign influence and foreign citizenship on them at/by birth from ever becoming the Commander-in-Chief of our military after the founding generation had passed away. It was placed in the Constitution for future national security reasons. (Reasons we see materializing today with Obama.) The founding generation was exempt from the natural born Citizen clause in Article II Section 1 of the Constitution. The natural born Citizen clause only applied to future generations of those who would be President upon the passing of the founding generation. These facts were stated in writing in a 1787 letter from John Jay to George Washington, Presiding Officer of the Constitutional Convention.”
He explains the citizenship of each president of the United States.
  1. George WASHINGTON – covered by Article II Grandfather Clause (GFC) was born on 22 Feb 1732 in VA.
  2. John ADAMS – covered by Article II Grandfather Clause (GFC) was born on 30 Oct 1735 in MA.
  3. Thomas JEFFERSON – covered by Article II Grandfather Clause (GFC) was born on 13 Apr 1743 in VA.
  4. James MADISON – covered by Article II Grandfather Clause (GFC) was born on 16 Mar 1751 in VA.
  5. James MONROE – covered by Article II Grandfather Clause (GFC) was born in 1758 in VA.
  6. John Quincy ADAMS – covered by Article II Grandfather Clause (GFC) was born in 1767 in MA.
  7. Andrew JACKSON – covered by Article II Grandfather Clause (GFC) was born in 1767 in Carolinas.
  8. Martin VAN BUREN – Article II (NBC) both parents Citizens when he was born in 1782 in NY. This was the first president qualified under the NBC clause. He was born in America to two Citizen parents. His parents were original Citizens who gained their citizenship by adhering to the Revolution in 1776.
  9. William Henry HARRISON – covered by Article II Grandfather Clause (GFC) was born in 1773 in VA.
  10. John TYLER – Article II (NBC) both parents Citizens when he was born in 1790 in VA.
  11. James K. POLK – Article II (NBC) both parents Citizens when he was born in 1795 in NC.
  12. Zachary TAYLOR – Article II (NBC) both parents Citizens when he was born in 1784 in VA.
  13. Millard FILLMORE – Article II (NBC) both parents Citizens when he was born in 1800 in NY.
  14. Franklin PIERCE – Article II (NBC) both parents Citizens when he was born in 1804 in NY.
  15. James BUCHANAN – Article II (NBC) both parents Citizens when he was born in 1791 in PA. His father James Sr. was foreign born (Irish) who came to Pennsylvania in 1783. His parents married circa 1788. By the time James Jr. was born in 1791 his father had already become a large land owner and a naturalized Citizen of the Sovereign Commonwealth of PA via the process outlined in the PA 1776 Constitution. He was a large land owner and to own land in PA one had to “naturalize” under the process set forth in the PA 1776 Constitution, i.e., take the Oath of Allegiance and live in the state for one year. In James Sr.’s case he was living in PA for eight years prior to James Jr. being born. James Sr. was a Citizen of the United States by being a Citizen of one of the original 13 colonies. Having a foreign born parent who become a naturalized Citizen of the U.S. prior to the child being born still qualifies the child to be a Natural Born Citizen

  20. James A. GARFIELD – Article II (NBC) both parents Citizens when he was born  in 1831 in OH.
  21. Chester A. ARTHUR – FRAUDULENTLY SEATED. Not an NBC or original Citizen. He was NOT an Article II NBC since he was born before his father’s naturalization. He was seated due to the assassination of President Garfield. Based on the facts uncovered later history, he was unconstitutionally seated due to the falsified nativity story and fraud by Chester Arthur, which was not fully discovered and proven until long after his death. He burned his early family records to cover up his lies and fraud. He was born circa 1829, allegedly in VT.
  22. Grover CLEVELAND – Article II (NBC) both parents Citizens when he was born in 1837 in NJ.

  43. George W. BUSH – Article II (NBC) both parents Citizens when he was born in 1946 in CT.
  44. Barack Hussein OBAMA – SEATED BY FRAUD. Not a natural born Citizen (NBC). His father was a foreign national and British Subject and was NOT a U.S. Citizen. Obama was seated due to the corruption of the main-stream media and the willful complicity and negligence of Congress. Obama’s father was a foreign national. His father was never a U.S. Citizen, nor was he even an immigrant to America or even a permanent resident. His father was only sojourning to the USA attending college, first in Hawaii, and later at Harvard University in Massachusetts. His father was also deported to Kenya at the request of Harvard University due to his unseemly alleged activities there.

Obama was born in 1961. Obama himself claimed he was born in Kenya for many years in the various editions of his pre-2007 biographical book. After 2007, Obama claims he was born in Hawaii, but no official hospital record of his birth has been produced. A PDF version of an alleged long-form birth certificate has been posted online by Obama but Arizona Sheriff Arpaio and his Lead Investigator Mike Zulloit argue it is computer manufactured forgery. They also proved that Obama’s alleged draft registration card is also a forgery. The laws in Hawaii were very lax regarding registration of births. There is no independent evidence of Obama being born in Hawaii. Nor are there pre-natal and no post-natal records for his mother in Hawaii during his alleged birth month in 1961. None have been found. There are no reports of an attending physician, mid-wife, or paramedic called to the scene of a speculated home birth. There are no independent witnesses to his claimed birth in Hawaii. In fact, there is no record at all for his mother even being in Hawaii in August 1961, the alleged month of Obama’s alleged birth in Hawaii. No records exist of his mother being in Hawaii for the six months prior to his alleged birth date.

To further contradict the Hawaiian birth story of Obama, there are many accounts by Obama’s paternal family in Kenya, Kenyan government officials, and Kenyan and African newspapers — that Obama really was born in a hospital in Mombasa, Kenya. And again, prior to 2007 Obama himself touted to the world that he was born in Kenya. No other president in history has had so many accounts attesting to his being foreign born and/or can provide no contemporaneous birth witnesses or independent evidence to corroborate their subsequent claim to U.S. birth
