Barack Hussein Obama II, was born on August 4, 1961.[Need certified long form birth certificate]

What conditions existed on that day?

He was born in the US, subject to the 14th Amendment, and is a US Citizen, eligible to serve as an Article I US Senator.

The UK recognized jus sangunis dual-nationality in 1961, and the US recognized Jus soli.

Barack Hussein Obama II, was born after the British Nationality Act 1948, but before the British Nationality Acts 1981 and 1983, and he was born a first-generation jus sanguinis UK citizen.

Since Barack Hussein Obama II, was born a first-generation UK citizen, not a naturalized UKC, living in the US, he remained a British citizen in the eyes of the British government, until Kenya Independence on December 12, 1963.

“Various countries do base their nationality laws first and foremost on jus sanguinis.  The UK departed from the common law tradition when it brought the British Nationality Act 1981 into force and required that at least one parent have permanent residence in the UK for a child born in the UK to be a British citizen at birth.”

In 1961, Barack Obama Sr, was in the US on a non-immigrant student visa, and he had a home (permanent residence) in Kenya British Protectorate which “he had no intention of abandoning.”

THE CONSTITUTION OF KENYA

On December 12, 1963, with Kenya Independence, Barack Obama Sr. and Barack HusseinObama II lost UK Citizenship

On December 12, 1963, with Kenya Independence, Barack Obama Sr. became a Kenya Citizen, with child custody of Barack Hussein Obama II.

On December 12, 1963, with Kenya Independence, Barack Hussein Obama II’s mother became a dual USA/Kenya Citizen, if she was married to Barack Obama Sr.

On December 12, 1963, with Kenya Independence, Barack Hussein Obama II, became a dual USA/Kenya Citizen.

On March 6, 1964, on divorce from Barack Obama Sr., Barack Hussein Obama II’s mother lost Kenya citizenship and became a US Citizen.

On March 6, 1964, his parent’s divorce granted Barack Obama Sr. “reasonable visitation, with child support TBD”, thus by connections Barack Hussein Obama II, remained a dual USA/Kenya Citizen. [need the Obama-Soetoro Indonesia time line, but it has no effect on Barack Hussein Obama II’s US Citizenship. Perkins v. Elg, 307 U.S. 325 (1939)]

1971 – Barack Hussein Obama II was 10 years old and returned to Hawaii on a US passport.

1979 –  Barack Hussein Obama II was 18 years old.

US Selective Service System

The registration requirement was suspended in April 1975. It was resumed again in 1980 by President Carter in response to the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan.

Registration continues today as a hedge against underestimating the number of service men needed in a future crisis. “On July 2, 1980, however, President Carter signed Proclamation 4771, Registration Under the Military Selective Service Act, retroactively re-establishing the Selective Service registration requirement for all 18–26 year old male citizens born on or after January 1, 1960.”

1981 – The British Nationality Act 1981 was effective from the date it was enacted, not retroactive, but had no effect on Barack Hussein Obama II, since on December 12, 1963, with Kenya Independence Barack Hussein Obama II lost UK citizenship.

1982 – Barack Hussein Obama II was 21 years old, ceased being under the CONSTITUTION OF KENYA, lost Kenya citizenship, and remained a US Citizen, but never was a US Natural Born Citizen.

Before 1983, as a general rule British nationality could only be transmitted from the father through one generation only, and parents were required to be married. See History of British nationality law.

If Barack Hussein Obama II was born in the USA to a US citizen mother and a US citizen father, then he would be a US Natural Born Citizen, therefore his citizenship would not be affected by the British Nationality Act of 1948 or the 1963 Kenyan Constitution.  Barack Hussein Obama II is not a US Natural Born Citizen and is ineligible under US Constitution Article 1 to serve as a US President.

Barack Hussein Obama II was born in the USA to a US citizen mother and a British citizen so at birth he was a Native Born US/British Dual Citizen, and later his citizenship was affected by the British Nationality Act of 1948 and the 1963 Kenyan Constitution, therefore he is a US Citizen. Barack Hussein Obama II is a US citizen eligible under US Constitution Article 1 to serve as a US Senator.

    Not only is Obama HALF White, he is 43.25% Arab (thus all of the Arab names on the Father’s side) and ONLY 6.75% African/Negro. Blacks and those other Americans who voted for this guy because they were brainwashed into thinging he was black have been suckered again by the LIBTARD media and their brain dead representatives. Sheep being led the slaugter.

    Congress made no less that 7 attempts to remove the Constitutional requirement that a president be a “natural born Citizen” beginning in 2003 (both Republicans and Democrats involved in legislation). Thank God all legislation failed and the Constitution prevailed. This murders Tollgrade’s arguments, Congress knows much more than you think otherwise they would have never attempted to remove the requirement. It is called “covering your ass” in many ciricles and that makes them pukes.

    David P. Turnbole, plays the race card forgetting Obama is half-white. Loser.

    I don’t know who you mean by “Tea Party”, but the Taxed Enough Already Party is growing fast. We have voters of all parties coming to meetings and joining online groups to get informed and educated on how the country went to Hell, and what needs to be done to save the Constitutional Republic. I don’t care what party you register with, only who you vote for and why. Vote for a better America, and we’ll see how well we voted.

    I just stumbled across this maniacal diatribe of bullshit this evening. I must say, you all seem to be pretty convinced that the man who has attempted to bring sanity to the politcal process is a foreigner. If that were actually the case I would ask that we shitcan the Republican white Americans that held our country hostage over tax breaks for, what looks to me, like some pretty shady rich bastards who paid to have them vote that way. Well, you got your wish, people. But come election time the Tea Party that made such a big splash this last election will be so far gone you won’t be able to smell their stench. Birthers. Good Lord, who the hell do you think you are? I call you biggots. Can’t stand a black man in the office of the President. Fear grips you who are ignorant.

    All the “birth certificates” from Kenya have been proven to be forged. Wonder why people keep forging “Kenyan birth certificates?” Not because they are trying to show the truth.

    In particular, the “birth certificate” created by Lucas Smith has been proven to be a forgery. (http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=108773)

    Those who claim that Obama was not born in Hawaii (birthers for short) almost always claim that the place where Obama was born was Kenya, and they say that Obama’s mother was visiting her husband’s relatives in 1961 when Obama was born.

    This often tends to be based on the allegation that Obama’s Kenyan grandmother had said that she was present when Obama was born in Kenya. But, in fact, Obama’s Kenyan grandmother never said any such thing. She said repeatedly in the taped interview that Obama was born in HAWAII, where his father was studying at the time. And, she said in another interview that the first that her family had heard of Obama’s birth was in a letter from Hawaii.

    In addition to the grandmother not saying that Obama was born in Kenya (nor did any other relative), there is the absence of official birth documents from Kenya (except for obvious forgeries). Birthers claim that this is explained by the Kenyan government sealing and hiding Obama’s documents.

    But this explanation requires faith in the Kenyan government being so efficient that not only was it able to hide every document, but that it has successfully hidden the fact that it was even hiding documents. The latter seems quite a stretch given that divided governments tend to leak, and that complete efficiency in hiding files from such experts as the CIA (which surely would have investigated) plus foreign diplomats, plus journalists and freelance journalists seems extremely improbable.

    For Obama to have been born in any other country than the USA requires the combination of:

    (1) Travel by his mother during late pregnancy (highly unlikely because of the high expense and high risk of such a trip in 1961. A round trip to Kenya for two has been estimated to have cost around $20,000 in 2010 terms, and there was high risk of stillbirth, and of Yellow Fever in Kenya [a Yellow Fever shot itself is risky during pregnancy]);

    (2) Birth outside of Hawaii (also unlikely);

    (3) Birth abroad despite the absence of any foreign documents or photographs showing either that Obama was born in a foreign country or that his mother was in the country at the time (highly unlikely);

    (4) The willingness of the parents to lie about his place of birth (unlikely since it would be a crime to file a false government document, and the lie would be unnecessary since for most purposes naturalizing a foreign-born child would be just as good as his being born in the country);

    (5) Successfully smuggling the child into the USA without a US travel document (extremely unlikely), and;

    (6) Convincing the officials in Hawaii that he was born in Hawaii (also extremely unlikely).

    ALL of these six things would be required for there to be a reasonable case that he was born in any other country than the USA. What are the odds of all six of them happening?

    The willingness to believe that Obama was born outside of the USA despite the overwhelming odds against it and despite all the evidence that he was born in Hawaii is why Ann Coulter, Glenn Beck and Bill O’Reilly all call birthers crazy.

      @tollgrade1 Can you explain “Why” Obama Sr. used two birth years?
      (4) The willingness of the parents to lie about his place of birth (unlikely since it would be a crime to file a false government document, and the lie would be unnecessary since for most purposes naturalizing a foreign-born child would be just as good as his being born in the country);
      ARE YOU KIDDING ME. OBAMA SR. EVEN LIED ABOUT HIS DATE OF BIRTH. IT IS WELL DOCUMENTED THAT HE CLAIMED HE WAS BORN IN 1934 AND 1936 ON GOVERNMENT AND COLLEGE RECORDS. EXPLAIN THIS.

    The reason that Obama’s election was confirmed UNANIMOUSLY by the US Congress (one hundred Senators and 435 Congressmen) is that not one single one of them believed either that Obama was born outside of the USA or that the citizenship of Obama’s father has any effect on Obama’s natural born citizen status.

    Any statement made that BHO II, is a natural born and eligible to hold the office of presidency, is mistaken and unlawfull.
    Now, we have hashed this over day after day, year after year and it is now time to but it to bed.
    And what a Glorious day that will be. To be finally rid of Barack Hussein Obama II.
    To get America back to where it rightfully should be and should never been allowed to go down the socialist-communist direction BHO has taken us.
    Upon BHO II’s Impeachment all those involved with BHO II, Constitutionally should be prosecuted, and tried for treason and the harboring of an illegal. Nothing less!!!

    ALL US citizens who were born in the USA are natural born citizens. Only naturalized citizens, citizens who were NOT born in the USA, are not natural born citizens. That is why the US Congress voted to confirm Obama’s election unanimously.

    “Under the longstanding English common-law principle of jus soli, persons born within the territory of the sovereign (other than children of enemy aliens or foreign diplomats) are citizens from birth. Thus, those persons born within the United States are “natural born citizens” and eligible to be President. Much less certain, however, is whether children born abroad of United States citizens are “natural born citizens” eligible to serve as President …”—- Edwin Meese, et al, THE HERITAGE GUIDE TO THE CONSTITUTION (2005) [Edwin Meese was Ronald Reagan’s attorney general, and the Heritage Foundation is a well-known Conservative organization.]

    “Natural born citizen. Persons who are born within the jurisdiction of a national government, i.e. in its territorial limits, or those born of citizens temporarily residing abroad.” — Black’s Law Dictionary, Sixth Edition

    “What is a natural born citizen? Clearly, someone born within the United States or one of its territories is a natural born citizen.” (Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on OCTOBER 5, 2004)–Senator Orrin G. Hatch (R-UT).

    “Prior to the adoption of the constitution, the people inhabiting the different states might be divided into two classes: natural born citizens, or those born within the state, and aliens, or such as were born out of it. The first, by their birth-right, became entitled to all the privileges of citizens; the second, were entitled to none, but such as were held out and given by the laws of the respective states prior to their emigration. …St. George Tucker, BLACKSTONE’S COMMENTARIES: WITH NOTES OF REFERENCE TO THE CONSTITUTION AND LAWS OF THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT OF THE UNITED STATES AND THE COMMONWEALTH OF VIRGINIA. (1803)

    “Therefore every person born within the United States, its territories or districts, whether the parents are citizens or aliens, is a natural born citizen in the sense of the Constitution, and entitled to all the rights and privileges appertaining to that capacity.”—William Rawle, A VIEW OF THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. 2d ed. (1829)
