Senate Definition of "Natural Born Citizen' - The Demise of Obama II

In April of 2008 the U.S. Senate concured with the definition of Vattel via Senate Resolution 511 stating that a 'natural born Citizen' is a child who is born of American citizens [with an "s"].

Barack Obama clearly does not meet that definition no matter where he was born. That you would not be worried about the United States being diluted into some 'world' nation state is insane, any other country in the world that would allow such insanity would be short lived.

As our Senators have clearly forgotten or overlooked their own unanimous resolution, it is incumbent upon us Citizens to bring this matter to a head. Currenly 94 active and retired military members have joined a suit being filed with the attorney general's office. This matter will be brought to a head by those who understand the original intent of the law.

Recognizing that John Sidney McCain, III, is a natural born citizen. (Agreed to by Senate)



2d Session

S. RES. 511
Recognizing that John Sidney McCain, III, is a natural born citizen.


April 10, 2008
Mrs. MCCASKILL (for herself, Mr. LEAHY, Mr. OBAMA, Mr. COBURN, Mrs. CLINTON, and Mr. WEBB) submitted the following resolution; which was referred to the Committee on the Judiciary

April 24, 2008
Reported by Mr. LEAHY, without amendment

April 30, 2008
Considered and agreed to


Recognizing that John Sidney McCain, III, is a natural born citizen.

Whereas the Constitution of the United States requires that, to be eligible for the Office of the President, a person must be a `natural born Citizen' of the United States;

Whereas the term `natural born Citizen', as that term appears in Article II, Section 1, is not defined in the Constitution of the United States;

Whereas there is no evidence of the intention of the Framers or any Congress to limit the constitutional rights of children born to Americans serving in the military nor to prevent those children from serving as their country's President;

Whereas such limitations would be inconsistent with the purpose and intent of the `natural born Citizen' clause of the Constitution of the United States, as evidenced by the First Congress's own statute defining the term `natural born Citizen';

Whereas the well-being of all citizens of the United States is preserved and enhanced by the men and women who are assigned to serve our country outside of our national borders;

Whereas previous presidential candidates were born outside of the United States of America and were understood to be eligible to be President; and

Whereas John Sidney McCain, III, was born to American citizens on an American military base in the Panama Canal Zone in 1936: Now, therefore, be it

Resolved, That John Sidney McCain, III, is a `natural born Citizen' under Article II, Section 1, of the Constitution of the United States.
