This is a very important question to be answered. This came up in the past primarily because bloggers around the ‘sphere were saying he was muslim and held allegiances elsewhere. That is not what this discussion is about. I don’t believe he is a muslim. I do in fact believe he is a Christian and I do believe he was born in Hawaii – even if he first provided a fake birth certificate (for whatever reason) and then his real birth certificate came out.
But, in order to be the President of the United States one must be a “natural born” citizen of the United States. Now – you say – “but, you already admitted he was born in Hawaii, doesn’t that make him a natural born citizen?” Here’s the answer – not necessarily.
Go check out this story: Obama Admits Dual Citizenship [Update] over at TD Blog. For a discussion regarding what a “natural born citizen” is – check it out here: Constitutional Topic: Citizenship. The section you want to really pay attention to as it relates to Obama falls under “Losing your Citizenship” – in particular – this line: Swearing an oath of allegiance to another country.
So—why is that so important with regards to Obama? He hasn’t sworn allegiance to another country has he? That is what is at the heart of the discussion over at TD Blog. There is factual evidence that Obama does indeed have dual citizenship – in Indonesia. The way the Indonesian citizenship rules work is that you don’t need to renounce your other citizenship as you do in other countries, he has to actively renounce his Indonesian citizenship – which – apparently, he has not done. Obama was also considered a Kenyan citizen at birth since his father was a natural born citizen to Kenya. Since Obama did not declare his citizenship to Kenya when he turned at 21 – it automatically expired. However, it has been surmised that after his step-father – a natural born citizen of Indonesia – adopted him – Obama became an Indonesian citizen. Obama has travelled on an Indonesian passport as an adult – supporting the fact that he does have Indonesian citizenship.
From TD Blog -
He’s lied about Kenya, at least by omission, for months/years, so why should I assume he isn’t lying about Indonesia? Note Kenyan Citizenship automatically lapses if it isn’t renewed at age 21, Indonesian Citizenship doesn’t. If he was an Indonesian Citizen he would have to actively repudiate that Citizenship. Did he? Has he? Because if he hasn’t, Senator Obama is Dual National Indonesian at this moment, subject to the Laws of BOTH Countries, equally.
That is true under US Law, Indonesian Law and International Law and until LAST YEAR Indonesia DID NOT Recognize Dual Citizenship and the USA did not Recognize that one could be a Dual US/Indonesian Citizen. It does not matter that the Senator was not Responsible for the change of Citizenship because he was a child when it happened.
At this time, Obama absolutely refuses to provide any documentation that proves he has actively denounced his Indonesian citizenship. If he does not renounce his Indonesian citizenship – by Indonesian and U.S. law – he has indicated an allegiance to Indonesia – whereby – his status as a natural born citizenship is taken from him – whereby – he is no longer eligible to run for President in this country.
Why won’t Obama produce the necessary paperwork that proves he has actively denounced his Indonesian citizenship? Where do his true allegiances lie? Given the fact that he and his wife hate this country, associate with the most far left radicals in this country, and are scholars of the marxist doctrines, I don’t truly believe he has this country’s best interests at heart. Is there no wonder that he announced to the German citizens in Berlin that he is “a citizen of the world” first!
Before all you guys on the left start thinking this is a red-herring – go check out the blog and factcheck.org. Obama has admitted he has dual citizenship which disqualifies him from being allowed to run for President under our U.S. Constitution. So – which party is undermining our constitution now? You too should be concerned about this. Put your hatred of Republicans and Bush aside and look at the true issue here – is he indeed actually qualified to be President constitutionally and if so, with these questions out there that are valid – why won’t Obama answer them and provide the proof?
