Kenya's Influence with Obama - Parliament's own words

Our Framers inserted “Natural Born Citizen” for a specific reason as a requirement for the office of the President of the United States – concern of foreign influence on the Executive.

The Framers were concerned that “divided interests” could influence how the US President makes decisions, either while protecting the US in time of crisis or as a normal course of affairs and policy.

Being ONE person ...
there are fewer checks and balances for the Executive.

By contrast, a member of Congress was left without the Constitutional requirement of being a Natural Born Citizen – because there are more internal checks and balances with hundreds of members in the Legislative Branch.

Remember this from Fight The Smears: “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.”

Obama was born a UK citizen via his father, Barack Obama Sr. Barack Obama Jr’s British citizenship was changed to Kenyan citizenship on Dec. 11, 1963, when the African nation become independent from the UK (See Section 90 of the Kenyan Constitution )

Now, that's all in context

Here are some comments of the Kenyan Parliament from Nov. 5, 2008, on the morning after Barack Obama win of the US Presidential election on Nov. 4
(comments are from the 41 page document, with emphasis added):



Wednesday, 5th November, 2008

The House met at 9.00 a.m.
Back-up copy:

Dr. Khalwale: On a point of order, Mr.

Deputy Speaker, Sir. You have heard none other

than the Leader of Government Business

acknowledge that because of Obama's win in the

United States of America (USA), the House is

crippled. Could we allow him to move a Motion

for Adjournment so that we could also continue

the celebrations of having a Kenyan ruling the

USA? I humbly request!

Mr. Deputy Speaker: Order, Mr.

Vice-President! We are citizens of the Republic of

Kenya! This is a supreme institution of this

country. Our responsibility is to our country, first

and foremost. We are not citizens of the USA!

Much as we appreciate and we are all happy;

nonetheless we are a country ourselves.


So, it is not an excuse for a Minister to be

away from his own Parliament, because he is

celebrating the victory of another presidential

candidate in another country.

The Assistant Minister for Water and

Irrigation (Mr. Kiunjuri): Mr. Deputy Speaker,

Sir, as you can see, people are really celebrating.

However, I am wondering whether the Americans

have not reported to work and yet it is their

victory. I am also hoping that there will be no

homecoming for Obama. If there is one, the Leader

of Government Business should alert us in good

time so that we can set up a committee to organize

for his homecoming.

Ms. Odhiambo:Mr. Deputy Speaker, Sir, the

President-elect, Mr. Obama, is a son of the soil

of this country.

Mr. Deputy Speaker: President-elect has

not been sworn-in yet. The election of

President-elect Obama is of utmost national

importance to the United States of America. Ms.

Odhiambo, you are a lawyer. You had better be

very careful where you transgress between

watching your own sovereignty and what can be

interpreted in some quarters as some form of treason
(Ed. note: the threat of "treason" is not directed to Ms Odhiamdo personally, but rather concern over how Obama's "former" Kenyan Citizenship may be viewed by outsiders)

Mr. Affey:For the first time, we have a leader of

a great country in this world whose blood is





Hon. Members, as you may be aware,

the people of the United States of America

have just had a historic election where the son

of this soil, Barrack Hussein Obama, has been

elected the 44th President of the United States

of America…

The Vice-President and Minister for

Home Affairs (Mr. Musyoka):
As we do, as you said from the Chair, this is a

sovereign country. We know we can learn a lot.

To be able to support that blood relation, I

think we owe it to ourselves to make sure that

we have a peaceful country as Kenyans; a

country that will uphold the true principles of

the rule of law, democracy and tolerance

between ourselves

At the beginning of this year, Senator
Barrack Obama called me at midnight and told me:

"Mr. Vice President, could you make sure you sort

out this problem?" I want to assure him that the

problem has since been sorted out.

The Assistant Minister for Higher

Education, Science and Technology (Dr.


Mr. Temporary Deputy Speaker, Sir, I

would like to take this opportunity to also

congratulate Barrack Obama on his victory and

also say that even as we look at that victory say it

is possible, it is only possible because there are

structures in place in the US that make it possible

for any potential candidate to win, irrespective of

whether they have a lot of money which they have

gotten legally or illegally, they are from a different
ethnic group and how old they are.

Mr. Chanzu:I highly congratulate Obama and

salute Americans, Black, White and other races,

for what they have done in showing the world that

a leader can come from any community. I also

want to congratulate Kenyans for the support they

have shown. It showed the Americans that we

were supporting our own.

Mr. Ethuro:
Mr. Temporary Deputy Speaker, Sir, we

have done it! That is why I like this Motion coming

at this time of Obama - yes we can! We did it with

the Parliamentary Service Commission. We did it

with the Leader of the Official Opposition. We are
doing it with the Official Opposition Bill. We

are doing it with the establishment of the

Budget Office and we are doing it with the

Cabinet size! Yes we can!

Curb your Enthusiasm
It should be noted that after the Kenyan National Assembly returned for their afternoon session on Nov. 5, there is NO further mention of Barack Obama. Obama’s name was not uttered for the rest of that day and very rarely is he mentioned since Nov. 5 in sessions of the Kenyan Parliament.

Possible related story here: Kenya gags Obama’s extended family

It should be noted that these comments made by Kenyan officials do not necessarily prove that Barack Obama Jr was born in Kenya.

However, the comments DO show that Kenyan officials believe that Obama is one of their own – and subject to their influence in US foreign affairs.

With Obama being a citizen of Kenya from 1963 to 1982, nearly half of his life, one can only guess if it’s true.

Letters to Military Associations - CALL TO ACTION - File in US Federal Court Regarding Obama's Citizenship Status

XXXXX XXXXXXX Association, Washington Office
Washington, DC 20002

Captain XXXXX,

Sir, as a fellow vet, I know you fully understand the obligation we accept when we say the words, “to support and defend the Constitution of the United States.” As citizen soldiers, those words have special meaning to us. Our allegiance rises above party politics, a man or an institution. Our allegiance is to the US Constitution -- that we “defend it against all enemies, foreign and domestic.” To that end, I have a CALL TO ACTION for the XXXXX XXXXXXX Association, action that will not be easy, yet required to ensure the Rule of Law stays intact.

Former US Senator Barack Obama has openly acknowledged that his father was a Kenyan (British) citizen and his mother was an American citizen. At birth in 1961, Barack Obama (Jr) was a dual-citizen – he has confirmed this fact himself. When Barack Obama, Jr, was born in Hawaii, Kenya was a British colony, still part of the United Kingdom. As a Kenyan native, Barack Obama, Sr was a British Citizen, whose status was governed by The British Nationality Act of 1948. That same act governed the status of Obama Sr‘s children.

As outlined in the British Nationality Act of 1948 (Part II, Section 5): "Subject to the provisions of this section, a person born after the commencement of this Act shall be a citizen of the United Kingdom and Colonies by descent if his father is a citizen of the United Kingdom and Colonies at the time of the birth.”

As a result, Barack Obama, Jr, IS a US citizen, but he is NOT a Natural Born Citizen as required by Article 2, Sect 1, Clause 5 of the US Constitution. Note that the US Constitution outlines that Senators and Representative are required to be US Citizens to hold office. However, the office of President has the unique requirement of Natural Born Citizen. That prerequisite was specifically outlined by the Framers, hearkened by John Jay, the first Chief Justice, to ensure that our Commander in Chief would have “undivided loyalties” to uphold our nation’s interest.

It is unfortunate that the Democratic National Committee and the Federal Election Commission allowed this to happen, i.e., not vetting the qualifications of Candidate Barack Obama for the National Election. We are on the precipice of a Constitutional Crisis. Numerous lawsuits are docketed in the US Supreme Court at this time, including a closed-door Conference that has received little press coverage, DONOFRIO V. WELLS, docket#
08A407, which takes place Friday, December 5. Many other cases are coming from different venues, disputing Barack Obama’s birth records to lawsuits challenging various Secretaries of States for their Certification process. Donofrio’s case is unique and directly challenges Barack Obama’s former British citizenship. However, nothing is for sure in the courtroom, and the clock is ticking until judgment is rendered.

Those who wear the uniform are in a unique position. We are UNDER OATH to “support and defend the Constitution of the United States.” We are the last line of defense against our enemies, and we put ourselves directly in harm’s ways at the direction of the Commander in Chief. While serving our nation, although we may not believe in the politics of the President, we follow his directions.

However, under UCMJ, we are to follow all LEGAL orders of our Commanding Officer. I dare say that if an illegitimate CINC holds office, our military may have some significant disorder following Barack Obama’s Inauguration on January 20. The potential of a breakdown in the military Chain of Command should shivers down the spine of any American, certainly those who understand how vulnerable it would make us to our enemies.

Many cases have been swept aside by lower courts for “lack of standing.” Military personnel actually do have the right, and duty, to request verification if there is doubt that the Commander in Chief does not meet Constitutional requirements to hold office. Such “questioning” is not governed by UCMJ Article 88 (Contempt toward Officials), DoD DIRECTIVE 1344.10 (Political Activities by Members of the Armed Forces on Active Duty), or any other UCMJ Article or Directive I can find.

Captain XXXXX, I ask that you consult with attorneys in your network and ask them to review this – I think you’ll be surprised by their response. IT IS VITAL, SIR, THAT YOU UNDERSTAND: There IS a difference between a Citizen, and Natural Born Citizen -- even if you are born on US Soil, especially if only ONE of your parents is an American Citizen. If you check online, you’ll find that many Constitutional lawyers are looking at this and agree we are headed toward a Constitutional crisis in the next few weeks. Unfortunately, it may fall on those of us are affected by this the most, the nation’s military, to keep this from happening.

Because military personnel are bound to the US Constitution by oath, it is believed by many of who are watching this situation that US Active Duty and Reservist have the legal standing to file lawsuits directly in the US Federal Court system. In doing so, these groups of Active Duty and/or Reservists can “fast track” this issue directly to the US Supreme Court to “Stay” the Electoral College vote that is to take place on December 15. Barack Obama is NOT President-Elect officially until the Electoral College meets and declares him so.

The Objective of these lawsuits is to have the US Supreme Court, or a significant portion of states’ Electoral College officials, investigate this further before Electoral College delegates from each state cast their votes on December 15. The 22nd Amendment would permit President George Bush to remain CINC until this issue is resolved.

Please note that AFTER the Electoral College votes on December 15, Congress would then certify the EC votes. Unfortunately, there is little reason to believe Congress has the “intestinal fortitude” to evaluate this properly before January 20 – they have NOT up to this point.

Sir, I know this is a sensitive situation, not lightly undertaken. It flirts with unconscionable topics like “political activity,” “chain of command,” and other deemed scandalous by opponents. However, overriding such concerns must be the issues of the “Rule of Law,” and specifically to us as military leaders, the “US Uniformed Services Oath of Office.”

It is neither unpatriotic nor insubordinate to ask of our civilian authorities: “If Barack Obama’s father was a British Citizen at the time of Barack Obama’s birth, is Barack Obama a “Natural Born Citizen” as the Constitution requires for the office of President?”

It will not be up to the US Military to decide the road for us ahead. However, if we don’t act IMMEDIATELY, I fear the officials who have the power to have the ability to stop this probable infraction of the US Constitution will not exercise the political courage to act.

COURAGE is a quality of which those in the US Military possess in abundance. NOW is the time to exercise that courage.
