“Natural Born Citizen” Requirement Explained

Constitutional law scholar and former law professor, Dr. Herbert W. Titus, has come forward to explain what the Constitution means by requiring that the President of United States must be a “natural born citizen.” Dr. Titus has degrees from Harvard and the University of Oregon, and is admitted to practice law before the U.S. Supreme Court and several appellate and district courts throughout the United States. In this brief article, Dr. Titus explains the distinction between a “natural born” citizen and a “native born” citizen, and also why the 14th amendment to the Constitution has no bearing on the issue.

In brief, a “native born” citizen is a person who was born on American soil (which Obama may or may not have been) and a “natural born” citizen is one who was not only born on American soil, but also has two American citizens for parents (which Obama does not since his father by Obama’s own admission was a British subject from Kenya).

In addition, the 14th amendment to the Constitution granting citizenship to those born in America who previously did not have citizenship was created to grant citizenship to former slaves after the Civil War and has nothing to do with the citizenship requirements to be President. Article 2, Section 1, of the U.S. Constitution is very clear in requiring the President to be a “natural born” citizen.

It is exceedingly clear that Obama does not pass the Constitutional test as a “natural born” citizen and should never have been allowed to run for President, let alone become President. It is unconscionable that the Democratic Party (which knew this beforehand), Congress, and the Electoral College allowed this miscarriage to happen. It also remains a mystery why no court in the land will take up this case and rule on it. Since Obama is planning to run again, it is imperative that this issue be legally dealt with once and for all.
