Constitutional requirements for the offices of President and Vice President of the United States

Amendment 12 – 1804 – "But no person constitutionally ineligible to the office of President shall be eligible to that of Vice-President of the United States." – Since 1804, the constitutional requirements for Vice President have been the same as the requirements for President.

Article II Requirements
  1. No person except a natural born citizen
  2. At least 35 years of age
  3. And fourteen years a resident of the United States
  4. The only exception to these requirements was those who were citizens at the time of the adoption of the constitution. Nobody alive at the time of the adoption is alive today.
Natural Born Citizen

Our founders borrowed the term from the international Law of Nations treaty.
  • The natives, or natural-born citizens, are those born in the country, of parents who are citizens.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • The country of the fathers is therefore that of the children; and these become true citizens merely by their tacit consent.
  • 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."
Two Presidents have served unconstitutionally

Chester Arthur – 1881-1885 – While Arthur himself was "native" born on American soil, he neglected to mention that his natural birth father was not an American citizen at the time of Chester's birth. Arthur was elected as Vice President and almost immediately became President when Garfield passed away shortly after being elected President. It was not learned that Arthur was not a natural born citizen until after he left office.

Barack Hussein Obama II – 2009 – Obama is the second individual to serve as President in violation of the US Constitution. Obama did not conceal the fact that he was not a natural born citizen, claiming throughout his life to be the natural born biological son of a foreign father from Kenya. His father was at no time in his life, a citizen of the United States. Obama has stated this repeatedly.

But he has also dodged the issue by using the term "citizen" in place of the term "natural born citizen" when responding to queries. He has intentionally misled Americans and the press by running from the term natural born citizen - because he knows that he cannot meet this requirement for office.

As the country of the fathers is the country of the sons, by natural bloodline birth right, Barack Obama II was born the natural born citizen of his father’s country, Kenya.

His mother was a young American citizen, and this has led to great confusion as 14th Amendment naturalization laws make it possible for a mother to confer citizenship, even if the mother is not a U.S. citizen, by simply delivering a baby on U.S. soil, often referred to as anchor babies.

Via man-made statutes, a mother can confer citizenship in the United States. However, only a natural born citizen of the United States can hold the offices of President or Vice President in the United States.

Based in natural law, the laws of nature and the Law of Nations treaty, only the biological father can confer natural born citizenship rights. Without a U.S. citizen father at the time of birth, the son (or daughter) cannot be a natural born citizen in the United States.

Without being a natural born citizen of the United States, you cannot serve as president or vice president, according to the U.S. Constitution.

This is not a matter of discrimination over race, nationality or gender. It is a matter of national security and a clear cut effort to avert all possibilities of a foreign agent with loyalties to any foreign entities or foreign entanglements, from holding the most powerful position in America, the office of Commander-in-Chief of our armed forces.

Some are very concerned with this reality while others couldn’t care less what the U.S. Constitution says or means. But if the most important constitutional office in our land does not matter, I submit to you that nothing in the Constitution matters and none of it can be upheld, protected or preserved.

Of course, the American people can change these requirements at any time, but only via constitutional amendment. Laws and statutes do not alter the constitution. In fact, if they are at odds with the constitution, they are "unconstitutional" laws or statutes and are void.

There is no constitutional amendment as of today which has either altered the requirements for office, or redefined natural born citizen. So Article II requirements stand as the law of the land.

On this basis, Barack Hussein Obama II cannot be president of the United States and everything that bears his signature during the unconstitutional term is void as if it never happened.

As our nation has never been here before, there is no clear path and opinions vary on how to best address the matter of a sitting unconstitutional president and the people surrounding the president who made it possible.

However, allowing a usurpation of the U.S. Constitution to stand once known, is to fail to uphold, protect, defend and preserve the very foundations of freedom and liberty, as well as the rule of constitutional law.

We are either a nation self-governed by laws, or we are a lawless nation. There is no in-between…
