Dual Citizenship Makes Obama Ineligible

"Dual Citizenship Makes Obama Ineligible Under Article II

By Judah Benjamin, Guest Author

So, at long last, Senator Obama admits that he was born with Dual Citizenship:

From �Fight the Smears�, courtesy of Annenberg-owned (did they think they were helping?)

�When Barack Obama Jr. was born on Aug. 4,1961, in Honolulu, Kenya was a British colony, still part of the United Kingdom�s dwindling empire. As a Kenyan native, Barack Obama Sr. was a British subject whose citizenship status was governed by The British Nationality Act of 1948. That same act governed the status of Obama Sr.�s children.

Since Sen. Obama has neither renounced his U.S. citizenship nor sworn an oath of allegiance to Kenya, his Kenyan citizenship automatically expired on Aug. 4,1982.�

Now nice Anti-Pumas, please admit that the Senator has been selling snake oil and you have been buying it. I said he was probably born with Dual Citizenship under the 1948 Act at the outset, and I wasn�t wrong. Likewise, I wasn�t wrong about the Kenyan Constitution and his Kenyan Citizenship. Don�t take any bets that I�m wrong about Indonesia. Or the US Constitution and what it means.

Please note that I, once again, state that I, personally, believe Obama was born in Hawaii and that it doesn�t affect my opinion on his Eligibility for the Office of POTUS at all. In my understanding Article II Requires that one be a �Natural Born Citizen�, and in terms of the Law as understood by the Framers, anyone with Dual Citizenship could not be �Natural Born�. It does not matter that they no longer hold that Citizenship, they fall into the same bracket as a �Naturalized Citizen� because they have/had Divided Allegiance. That is my view and I haven�t moved an inch on it.

However, the Kenyan Citizenship Issue may not be the main point here, WAS HE, OR WAS HE NOT, an INDONESIAN CITIZEN? The Senator isn�t saying, isn�t mentioning it, is trying to avoid producing any Paperwork at all. Why? If he is/was an Indonesian Citizen, too, the Senator�s entire narrative is a fiction and he should be ashamed of himself."
