STATUS OF KAMALA HARRIS AS NATURAL BORN

STATUS OF KAMALA HARRIS AS NATURAL BORN


Trump revives a racist conspiracy theory against Harris.

This may be of some interest to you, with reference to:

Tue, Aug 18, 2:25 PM (5 days ago)
Katie. Rogers, krogers6  Editor New York Times

” Mr. Trump at a news briefing at the White House on Thursday, President Trump encouraged a Racist (don’t really have the meaning of racist in determining Natural born Citizenship, is everything Racist?) conspiracy theory that is rampant among some of his followers, that Senator Harris is not eligible for the vice presidency. Who a “citizen” is.”?
The attached documentation clearly defines who is eligible to run for the Presidency and Vice Presidency of the United States, it also clarifies what the 14th Amendment documents.
This information is not Conspiracy theory, this is documentation that can be found in the Government Archives and Supreme Court records.
Just being born in California or any other state does not make you a “Natural born Citizen” as required in Article II of the Constitution for taking the office of the President or Vice-President.  I highly suggest you read this documentation if you are a reporter of the truth, it is very hard to call our founding fathers liars, also hard to misinterpret what the Supreme Court ruled in the Minor v. Hippest, and the Case of US v. Wong Kim Ark
Understand one thing that will be made quite clear,; The 14th Amendment does not define what the qualifications are to be the president of the United States in fact it does not even mention “Natural born Citizen” It states “All person born or Naturalized  in the  United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are “Citizens”.

Further clarification can be found in other documents but one fact remains, if your parents at the time of your birth were not “Naturalized citizens”, you would not be subject to the jurisdiction of the United States.  This is the question regarding Kamala Harris as her parents were here on Student visa, has anyone validated the fact that they were or were not naturalized in 1964?  It would be unusual as you had to have residency in the U.S. for 5 years to apply for naturalization, they came here in 1960 & 1961, she was born in 1964, So the question is still open: is she legally eligible to run for the presidency?

CONCERNING THE LEGAL STATUS OF KAMALA HARRIS AS, A “Natural Born Citizen”
Where does Kamala Harris get the idea that she is an “African American?” She was born of Jamaican and Asia India Parents, not “African American” or “African parents!  Is this another Elizabeth Warren: “I am American Indian?”  Kamala is using this term in a false pretense, and the press is bragging about her being the “First Black Women Vice President, this is all false!
Defining “Natural Born Citizen”

Overview of Relevant Citizenship Derivation Laws
Here’s a brief summary of the various citizenship derivation laws that have applied over the years (contact an immigration attorney for details and exceptions):

Parents naturalized between December 24, 1952 and October 4, 1978: You derive citizenship if you were unmarried, received a green card before your 16th birthday, and both parents naturalized. Or, if only one parent naturalized, you can derive citizenship if the other parent was dead, or your parents were legally separated and the parent with legal custody of you naturalized. You must have been a biological child, not adopted or a stepchild.

So called experts (Lawyers)  are totally wrong on their interpretation of the 14th Amendment, Just because you are born on American soil, does not mean you are a “Natural born Citizen,”  a British man and woman can have a child born in the United States,  that child would be born a “Citizen” of the United States, but also a Subject of Britain therefore  would not be able to run for the Presidency or Vice-Presidency of the United States.

One must be a “Natural Born Citizen” to be the President or Vice-President of the United States of America.  There is no difference in the rights held by a “Citizen” versus a “Natural Born Citizen” in the United States, other than the fact, one who is not a “Natural Born Citizen” cannot be either the President or Vice President of the United States.  A “Citizen” can be a Senator, a Congressperson, a member of the US Supreme Court, or any other forms of Office.

“A Natural Born Citizen” is a Citizen by no Act of Law, or Legislation, such as Naturalization.  Congress can only Naturalize but cannot determine who is a Natural Born Citizen.

The proper method to determine who qualifies to be a “Natural Born Citizen”, pursuant to the Constitution of the United States, is to examine first the plain words of the Constitution.  Article II of the Constitution only states that the President must be a Natural Born Citizen.  It does not define who is a Natural Born Citizen.

If the plain words of the Constitution do not supply an answer, then appropriate legal analysis is to examine the intent of the Framers and Signors of the US Constitution, as to the meaning of the words, “Natural Born Citizen.”  The intent can be determined by examining the testimony and writings of the Founders, along with evidence of any legal or philosophical influences on the same Founders or Signors.  In addition, one must examine legal cases, especially US Supreme Court Cases that have addressed the issue, along with Congressional records and efforts, regarding the same.

Our Constitutional laws were written with the assistance of the English law  known as “Vattel’s law” or “Law of Nations” which plainly states  “Under Emmerich de Vattel’s Law of Nations, Citizenship is determined by the father, the mother and the nation.

Section 212 in the “Law of Nations,” defines “Natural Born Citizen:” “The Citizens are the members of the civil society; bound to this society by certain duties, and subject to its authority, they participate equally in its advantages.  The natives, or “Natural Born Citizen”, are those born in the country, of parents who are Citizens”.

Representative John Bingham the Framer of the 14 the Amendment states such to the Congress in August, 1787, the Constitutional Convention changed the requirement from “born a Citizen” to “Natural Born Citizen”

The testimony of David Ramsay, a Convention Delegate and Historian, at the Convention, was also important.  Dr. Ramsay published an Essay in 1789, the same year that the US Constitution was ratified, entitled, “A Dissertation on the Manners of Acquiring the Character and Privileges of a Citizen”.  Dr Ramsay defined “Natural Born Citizen” as “the children born in the country to citizen parents”.

Natural Born Citizenship” requires that the person be born in the United States or where the United States is Sovereign, and to two Citizen parents of the United States.  Such a requirement precludes any challenge to the allegiance of such a person, based upon any natural law, or law of nations.

The 14th Amendment to the United States Constitution was Ratified on July 9, 1868.  One of the primary purposes of the 14th Amendment was to establish the former slaves, as Citizens of the United States.

The 14th Amendment to the United States Constitution grants “Native Born Citizenship” to the Persons born within the United States and Subject to the United States Jurisdiction at the time of his or her birth.  The 14th Amendment confers Citizenship” on the Native Born, but does not grant those simply born in the United States the status of a “Natural Born Citizen.”

The 14th Amendment says nothing about “Natural Born Citizen”, or who is eligible to serve as President.

The 14th Amendment defines who are “Citizens” of the United States, based upon being born in the United States, and subject to its Jurisdiction.  The 14th Amendment is sometimes confused as determining who is “Natural Born Citizen,” But any reasonable reader would know this to be false.  The 14th Amendment only defines a particular class of Citizens, namely those born upon United States soil, and subject to its jurisdiction, and does not determine who is a “Natural Born Citizen.”

Incidentally, the 14th Amendment does not necessarily confer Citizenship on all persons born in the United States, but on those born in that country, subject to the jurisdiction of the United States.  If a person enters the United States illegally, and bears a child, neither party is necessarily within total the jurisdiction of the United States.

John Bingham, who was the main framer of the 14th Amendment, understood tha“Natural Born Citizen” to be defined as a person born in the United States to parents, not owing any allegiance to a foreign Sovereign or power.  In 1862, Bingham stated in the Congressional Globe:

“All other lands, who…become naturalized, are adopted citizens of the United States; all other persons born within the Republic, of  parents owing allegiance to no other sovereignty, are “Natural Born Citizen”.

In 1866,Rrepresentative Bingham stated in the Congressional Globe:

“I find no fault with the introductory clause of the 1866 Civil Rights Act, which is simply declaratory of what is written in the Constitution, that every human being born within the jurisdiction of the United States of parents not owing allegiance to any foreign sovereignty is, in the language of your Constitution itself, a “Natural Born Citizen.”

The following is but one of several cases from the Supreme Court that dealt with the “Natural Born Citizen” definition:

In 1898, the US Supreme Court heard the Case of US v. Wong Kim Ark.  Wong is often declared by some as establishing a precedent that those born on United States soil, irrespective of the Citizenship of the parents, are themselves Citizens.  This assertion is false.

The Decision in Wong holds that a requirement for Citizenship is that persons born on United States soil of parents that are permanently domiciled in the United States.  The parents in Wong were legal and permanent Residents of the United States.  Upon the holding in Wong, “anchor babies” are not US Citizens.   The Wong Decision did not determine what Citizens are “Natural Born Citizen.”

The Supreme Court chief Justice summation in the  in Minor v. Happersett  case stated that “Natural Born Citizen” are those born in the United States to parents, both of whom are Citizens.

Kamala Harris’s parents were; (it has to be assumed till proven otherwise), here on student VISAS, Student VISAS did not grant “Permanent Residence” you had to  apply for “Permanent Residence” after having received your Student VISA.   Only “Green Cards” granted “Permanent Residence” to the holder.  As a student you could apply but it took couple years to get completed and approved. Kamala’s mother came to the U.S in 1960, Her father 1961, Kamala Harris was born in 1964, the U.S. Immigrations laws (referencing back to 1964) required individuals to be in the U.S. 5 years continuously as “Permanent Residents”  before they could apply for Naturalization, which then took another 6 to 12 months to complete.  Neither of her parents met that status at the time of her birth in October 1964,

 Under this immigration law (referencing law in affect in 1964) , as it has been modified a couple times since then, it would mean that Kamala Harris  would  be a Citizen (Same as the British Couple mentioned earlier) with allegiance to her father’s country till such time as she became naturalized, that would preclude her from being able to run as the Vice President of the United States, as neither of her parents were U.S Citizens at the time of her birth, referring to all Statements you have read previous to this point, it states very Plainly “born of parents” Plural not singular! who are U.S Citizens.

The universities who lean solidly to the left can interpret the term “Natural born Citizen” any way they want ,that  it’s not a legal definition,  our Founding Fathers stated, documented, and the Supreme Court has ruled, and documented the facts, which paint a totally different picture, definitely not the one published from Cornell University that many rely on for their proof of ‘Natural Born” status..

This same information is going to be sent to the President, VP Attorney General, and my representatives in the Florida Congress.

This woman is a danger to this country and must not be allowed to sit in the position of the Vice President of the United States.

COVID IS HOW DEADLY?

 
Recently a WHO executive director said that the UN agency estimates that about 10 percent of the world’s population may have been infected with COVID-19. Recognizing that 10 percent of the world’s population is about 760 million, we have to wonder how deadly this virus actually is.  For the past weeks and months now we have been constantly hearing that if we don’t take the right steps, the virus will keep spreading. Even though the virus continues to spread with all of the actions everyone has taken.
According to The New American, “WHO’s virus dashboard shows 35,274,993 confirmed cases and 1,038,534 deaths, which would mean the virus killed 2.9 percent of those who contracted it. That figure is likely much lower, because not everyone who contracts the virus will be tested. Yet if [the] … figure of 760 million cases is correct, then the death rate would be 0.136 percent using the figure for confirmed deaths.”
Now, we do realize that because COVID-19 is a new virus, it is more easily caught and transmitted. However many medical professionals have pointed out that most of those who have died with COVID-19 are older and generally have an underlying condition. With that being said it makes us wonder whether they would survive a serious case of the flu or pneumonia, let alone this new virus.
For months now the mainstream media has been portraying this as a deadly virus to keep you living in fear. We encourage you to do your own research because as many already know, viruses will always be with us. We need to accept it and move on.  Tyrants understand that as long as you are afraid, they can control your movements, choices, and ultimately, how you will live. The best thing we can do is continue to be an educated and fearless electorate. We urge you to focus on educating those officials that are charged with enforcement because they have taken an oath to protect our God-given rights, not to trample over them.
We encourage you to follow the action items below to help expose this tyrannical plan to take away our God-given rights in the name of the COVID-19 “crisis.”

Says it all – Vote Red or Americas Dead November 3, 2020

By Capt Joseph R. John, October 5, 2020; The American Form of Government—America is a Republic

The American Form of Government—America is a Republic

 
By Capt Joseph R. John, October 5, 2020; Op Ed # 513
 
The attached video summarizes the history of The American Form of Government.  A Republic is the form of government, that is governed by a fixed body of laws, and those laws are not subject to the whims of elected representatives in government.  The essence of Freedom is the proper limitation of the government of the United States.  The fixed body of laws that govern the Republic of the United States of America is the US Constitution, which was created and given to their posterity by the Founding Fathers.  The US Constitution is the body of laws that protects the Rights and Freedoms of the Citizens of the United States.  Without law, there can be no Freedom in America!    
 
Is it any wonder that Black Lives Matter Marxists (with close ties to Communist China) and Antifa Domestic Terrorists, the foot soldiers for Tom Perez, the Marxist Chairman of the Socialist Democrat Party, have been leading violent riots, looting, arson of buildings, and anarchy in 300+ Democrat controlled Sanctuary Cities, calling for the defunding of Police Forces?  Without law, there can be no Freedom in America!  Wide spread anarchy, over the last 9 months, has been the attempt by hundreds of thousands of violent revolutionaries in 300 Sanctuary Cities, led by Black Lives Matter and Antifa, to change the Republic to a Socialist State, while bypassing the legal steps required to change the structure of The American Form of Government, which is to amend the US Constitution. 
 
The Republic is governed by a fixed body of laws, and those laws are not subject to the whims of elected representatives within government.  For Socialist Democrats to threaten to unilaterally change the 244-year make up of two of the three branches of government of the United States, the Congress and The Supreme Court, is tyrannical. 
 
For Socialist Democrats to threaten to change the make-up of Congress, by allowing the Democrat controlled City of Washington DC and Democrat controlled Island of Puerto Rico, to each be represented by 2 new US Senators in the US Senate, and 2 new US Congressmen in the US House of Representatives, would be their goal to lock in the control of the US Senate for Democrats in perpetuity.  That action would eliminate the limited powers of the US Congress forever and would alter the delicate balance of political rule in the Republic. 
 
Socialist Democrats have threatened to pack the Supreme Court, if the majority of the Justices on the Supreme Court shift from what has been a Progressive Liberal majority for many years that legislated from the bench, to a new Conservative majority that will cease legislating from the bench.  The steps Socialist Democrats signaled that they would take, to pack the court, would be to first convince the American electorate to vote to give Social Democrats majority control of the US Senate.  Then they would abolish the filibuster, in order to crush minority opposition, so they would be able to increase the number of Justices from 9 to many more, in order to ensure that the majority of the Justices on the Supreme Court will return to a Progressive Liberal majority.  
 
The rights of the government of the United States are limited by an established body of laws in the US Constitution that governs the structure of the three branches of government.  The Founding Fathers provided a process for the Republic to modify the structure of the three branches of government; it is to amend the US Constitution.  Revolution and anarchy in the street is not an approved or a legal manner to change The American Form of Government.
 
Over the last 9 months in 300+ Democrat controlled Sanctuary Cities, Black Lives Matter and Antifa led violent riots, looting, the arson of businesses, attacks on police officers, the murder of over 700 Americans & 50 Police Officers, and the destruction of $2+ billion in small business infrastructure.  In order to begin the revolution against The American Form of Government and change the Republic into a Socialist State, wide spread anarchy was initiated in hundreds of Sanctuary Cities, on the same date, by thousands of violent rioting Socialists, Marxists, Progressives, The Muslim Brotherhood supporters, and Communist revolutionaries (with no social distancing at all), in their plan to bypass legal steps to change the lawful structure of the Republic.   
 
The riots were initiated in coordination with the Social Democrats plan to change two branches of the government.  Socialists, Marxists, Progressives, The Muslim Brotherhood supporters, and Communist revolutionaries have been trying to eliminate the control of law enforcement by perpetrating anarchy.  Defunding police forces was the initial step taken to take control away from Police Forces and power away from American citizens in Minneapolis, Portland, Seattle, Atlanta, Baltimore, New York City, Los Angles, Las Vegas, Chicago, Detroit, etc.  It has been a very effective initial step, since for over the last 9 months, there has been little or no law enforcement arrests, trials of the hundreds of thousand violent rioters in 300+ Sanctuary Cities, sending them to long prison terms for insurrection.
 
Without law, there can be no Freedom in America!    
 
“Millions” of Americans who have been witnessing the anarchy over the last 9 months, feel threatened by the violent riots, looting, and the arson of thousands of buildings, and have been buying weapons, in accordance with provisions of the Second Amendment, so they can protect their possession, property, and families.  To retain the 244-year old Republican Form of Government, Americans must vote against and reject the Socialist Democrats plan to permanently alter the US Senate and the Supreme Court, by voting against the Socialist Democrats’ campaign to take control of the US Senate.  
 
Without law, there can be no Freedom in America! 
 
“The US Constitution is a limitation on the government, not on private individuals…it does not prescribe the conduct of private individuals, only the conduct of the government…it is not a charter for government power, but a charter of the citizen’s protection against government.”
