New "Citizen vs. Natural Born Citizen" Pictorial Advertisement in Washington Times National Weekly - pg 5 - Monday 16 Nov 2009 Issue

New "Citizen vs. Natural Born Citizen" Full Page, Full Color, Pictorial Advertisement in Washington Times National Weekly - pg 5 - Monday 16 Nov 2009 Issue:

Many people do not know there is a difference between a "Citizen" and a "natural born Citizen." Being a "Citizen" of any type, whether an Article II natural born Citizen, 14th Amendment born Citizen, 14th Amendment naturalized Citizen, or statutory born Citizen under a Congressional Act, means you are a member of the society and entitled to all its rights and privileges. But under our Constitution to serve in the singular most powerful office in our government, that is to be the President and Commander-in-Chief of our military under our Article II, Section 1, Clause 5, of our Constitution you need to be a "natural born Citizen." Being a "natural born Citizen" cannot be conveyed by any laws of man and can only be conveyed by the facts of nature at the time of your birth and circumstances of your birth, i.e., being born in the country to two citizens of the country. (Legal Treatise "The Law of Nations - Principles of Natural Law" Section 212 by E. Vattel 1758, SCOTUS Decision Venus 1814, SCOTUS Decision Minor v Happersett 1874). This new advertorial is designed to help educate the public pictorially about the fact that Obama is NOT a Natural Born Citizen of the USA and thus is ineligible under our Constitution to the office he sits in. He is a Usurper who was allowed to be put there by millions in foreign money, a corruptly lead Congress, and an enabling main stream media. This is a constitutional crisis and a national security concern that must be addressed by the U.S. Supreme Court or our Republic, Constitution, and Liberties are in great danger.

Lead Plaintiff, Kerchner v Obama & Congress ... help the cause:

P.S. A special thanks to "Erica" at the site for the concept and idea.

That certainly gets the message across. You'd think even some of the Obots would understand it (note the use of "some").

A very fine advertorial that should stick in people's minds and make them think - Congressmen excepted of course!!

When you take campaign contributions from a foreign power you are immediately showing the constituency that you are of questionable background. I don't even want to see this phony salute my flag as it would be meaningless. His plans of becoming permanently ensconced in the oval office are up in smoke. Everyone is now aware of this phony.

I pray that God will open the judges eyes to the truth and I appreciate your work for the benefit of those who still care about this country.

Either we stick to the Constitution or we don't. I say we do. Thanks for putting this out there again.

Sallyven said...

Perfect...and awesome.

Thank you.

Mr. Kerchener and Mr Apuzo,

Beautiful. I can only beleive that Judge Napolantano gets the paper!

I've just posted a new article on my blog relevant to NBC.

Capitalization, The Constitution, And The Meaning Of Natural Born Citizenship


The sad and disgusting part about this is that every single member of Congress has swallowed his claims of citizenship hook, line, and sinker.
This I would submit, would make Congress guilty as co-conspirators.
Also, all of Congress has failed their oath to uphold the Constitution. AS for the electorate, the fact that boy wonder was elected by the people to be our President tells me that the voting population is a stupid, ignorant lot. If it truly is stupidity, then I submit there should be a minimum IQ level be met before a person is given their right to vote. It seems to me the population it getting increasingly stupid, as the flood of illegals and high rate of High School dropouts is dumbing down the population. This "dumbing down" could be a planned effect by the Democrats to gain followers, hence votes. It is said that within 50 years, the Hispanics will be in the majority, and I would guess most of these would be poorly educated people looking for Pelosi's handouts. This is why I feel the sooner Obama is impeached, and tried for his crimes, and all co-conspirators rounded up and hung, the the more likely it is that we can return our great nation to its Constitutional roots and prevent a revolution.

Many years ago when my children were in elementary school I had an epiphany about public education. As a result I created a grassroots coalition of parent activists to fight back. I won't waste space here repeating all the ups and downs in that battle, but suffice to say I knew we were on the road to socialism (and was pilloried for saying so), I knew the U.S. Dept. of Education was taking the lead even though it isn't supposed to (and still is), and I realized that ultimately their methodologies would create a dumbed down population which could be easily manipulated. The behemoth won. Sadly, I have been vindicated.

If we ever win the battle over Obama's eligibility, we need to get into the trenches again to bring education back to basics and common sense.

A fight for another day.

Something to consider when deciding who should interpret Article II:

Legislation which alters the Free Exercise Clause's meaning cannot be said to be enforcing the Clause. Congress does not enforce a constitutional right by changing what the right is. City of Boerne v. P.F. Flores, 117 S.Ct. 2157; 138L.Ed.2d 624; 521 U.S. 507.

Your comment to "jacquebauer" is well-said and right on the money!!

Carlyle said...

Perhaps you would care to comment on this:

Not many months ago - when I was considerably more naive - I never used to worry much about 'constitutional' issues. I figured if any activities or events strayed very far from the constitution, there were plenty of checks and balances in the system. In addition to specific oaths and duties of various officials, there were a lot of people in congress and at least a few would speak up. Then there were the courts, academia, and public opinion in concert with the MSM.

Well I guess we have all learned that this entire arrangement does not work. In addition to the immediate and palpable current crisis (crises?), we have a much bigger looming problem. Going forward, what is the standard and workable method to seek redress? Who are the enforcers of the constitution? A law - even the broad 'law of the land' - is no law, without teeth. We may as well be British and have the government just make it up as it goes along!

Mario Apuzzo, Esq. said...


I understand how you feel. There are supposed to be various checks and balance in our system apart from the separation of powers between the branches of government. The Framers placed, among other protections, these mechanisms in our Constitution so that the People would have protection from a government corrupted by power. In our nation, the media has also always played a critical role in protecting the People from corrupt political power and in keeping them informed so that they can make intelligent decisions regarding their Constitutional Republic.

It does appear as though these institutions have broken down today. If the government is not willing to keep the nation together in a way that the People want it to be kept together, then it is up to the People to do so. The People must exercise their right to vote and change their government as much as possible each chance they get. The nation can be saved as long as the People have a real opportunity to change their government through the power of the vote.

Congress and Obama need to hear this same admonition : Oliver Cromwell’s Speech on the Dissolution of the Long Parliament
Given to the House of Commons

20 April 1653

"It is high time for me to put an end to your sitting in this place, which you have dishonored by your contempt of all virtue, and defiled by your practice of every vice; ye are a factious crew, and enemies to all good government; ye are a pack of mercenary wretches, and would like Esau sell your country for a mess of pottage, and like Judas betray your God for a few pieces of money.

Is there a single virtue now remaining amongst you?

Is there one vice you do not possess?

Ye have no more religion than my horse; gold is your God; which of you have not barter’d your conscience for bribes?

Is there a man amongst you that has the least care for the good of the Commonwealth?

Ye sordid prostitutes have you not defil’d this sacred place, and turn’d the Lord’s temple into a den of thieves, by your immoral principles and wicked practices?

Ye are grown intolerably odious to the whole nation; you were deputed here by the people to get grievances redress’d, are yourselves gone!

So! Take away that shining bauble there, and lock up the doors. In the name of God, go!"

Sallyven said...

Honestly, I have lost my faith in the voting process as well, with ACORN, voter fraud, the upcoming 2010 census and its potential for manipulation and its impact on representation. The fact that a large majority of the population pays no taxes at all. Add to that the growing implicit tax rate (i.e. the point where it makes no sense to work versus the free government benefits lost), and talk of amnesty for illegal aliens, and you have the potential for an even larger majority to vote themselves even more benefits. The government workforce continues to grow. Add to this the lack of civics and history education coupled with the predominantly liberal bias among academia. The popularity of the concept of "relative truth". The "hip" admiration for the likes of Chi, Castro, Mao, Communism...

We have a lot of work ahead of us.

It is comforting to know that patriotic citizens like Mr. Apuzzo and Mr. Kerchner are leading the charge on the eligibility issue, which I feel, as I have stated here before, is the most important issue of our time, as it is the most symbolic of the predicament we now face as a nation.

Chief said...

Resignations at the White House, are the chickens coming home to roost? It is reported that Obama's personal attorney Robert Bauer is now White House Council. Very interesting. Why all the departures?

Sallyven said...

Chief--good point.

I have heard discussed whether it is appropriate for the Justice Department to be defending Obama in some of the lawsuits, and now we have his personal attorney actually working at the White House.

What is your opinion on this, Mr. Apuzzo?

jayjay said...


Ol' Ollie had it right ... wonder if he could be persuaded to give a speech to a Joint Session??? Maybe one with our Putative Prez in attendance???

jayjay said...


You seem to be assuming that there WILL BE any meaningful voting in 2012.

It seems that having a guy who has never shown himself to be eligible to hold the office he now occupies may very well change to equation.

Especially as he surrounds himself with more and more "czars" and other syncophants. Having control of the US Census is merely another Communist arrow in his quiver.

Mario Apuzzo, Esq. said...


The issue of legal representation for Obama is a complex one. It is complex because in the Kerchner action I sued him in both his personal and official capacity. His personal capacity is involved because he had to prove he was an Article II "natural born Citizen" before becoming a public official by executive power vesting in him under Article II, Section 1, clause 1. The time for him to be constitutionally compelled to make that showing would have been after he was elected by the Electoral College and before he was confirmed by Congress under the 20th Amendment. He was still a private person at that time.

I also sued Obama in his official capacity because even though he is now the putative sitting President, he refuses to honor his oath under Article II, Section 1, clause 6 to “preserve, protect, and defend” the Constitution and his obligation under Article VI, clause 3 to be bound by oath or affirmation to “support” the Constitution, by refusing to adequately prove that he is an Article II "natural born citizen" and by insisting to continue to occupy the Office of President even though he is not eligible for that office because he is not an Article II “natural born Citizen.”

Surely the Justice Department can represent a President in his official capacity. I doubt they can represent him concerning actions that he took or did not take in his private capacity as an ordinary citizen before becoming President. The problem is how do we separate the two actions which are intertwined with each other so that we may know when the Justice Department is acting to defend his official capacity versus his private capacity. Maybe someone reading this comment can offer some insight into this problem.

Mario Apuzzo, Esq. said...


Note that I said: "The nation can be saved as long as the People have a real opportunity to change their government through the power of the vote." The key word in the sentence is "real." That word says a lot. It means that the election has to be legitimate in all respects.

Also, an election is a tool available to the People to change their government. Why forfeit that opportunity if it is there for the taking?

Of course, I am not suggesting that we abandon our quest to remove Obama legally through the joint effort of the U.S. Supreme Court and Congress.

jayjay said...


... and I'M not advocating we vote him into a second term if there IS an election in 2012.

It is not comlicated. The Judicial System needs to uphold the United States Constitution or leave their bench! no more needs said.

Everyone has such great comments. The only thing that we can really do now is to wait and see what will happen. A little Biblical reference from Romans 8:28 "And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose."
God is doing something, most of us don't know what, but he's doing something to help us. Perhaps to stand for what we believe in, and to stand for our country. Even when we don't think that God is doing something great, have a little faith. God never fails.
