Follow the lineage of the father at the time of birth. His father was a transient alien. You keep want to go by England's practices at the time. Where everyone born with the realm of the King was a citizen simply by virtue of birth. America did not adhere to this practice. There are specific reasons why this was done. One of which is, if everyone born on U.S. soil is a U.S. citizen then we would be inviting people who have no allegiance towards America at all to be full fledged citizens????? That's asinine. There are other reasons as well but I'll leave it at that.

I wonder if Obama knows about this?

Taqiyya (alternate spellings taqiyeh,taqiya, taqiyah, tuqyah) is a form of religious dissimulation, or a legal dispensation whereby a believing individual can deny his faith or commit otherwise illegal or blasphemous acts while they are at risk of significant persecution.

This practice was emphasized in Shi'a Islam whereby adherents may conceal their religion when they are under threat, persecution, or compulsion. Taqiyya was developed to protect Shi'ites who were usually in minority and under pressure. In the Shi'a view, taqiyya is lawful in situations where there is overwhelming danger of loss of life or property and where no danger to religion would occur thereby.

The majority Sunni Muslims rarely found it necessary to hide their beliefs. However, there are examples of practicing taqiyya among Sunnis where it was necessary. In the Sunni view, denying your faith under duress is "only at most permitted and not under all circumstances obligatory".

Incidentally, isn't this man Putin the very one your comrade American er hmm communist Lady has been quoting, along with Putin's newspaper, Pravda?

Using a foreign passport in order to obtain status as a foreign student is precisely that, proof of naturalization in a foreign state making him ineligible to hold the office of president of the United States.
Obama's team of lawyers squashed a subpoena to have his Occidental College records released. Obama paid the Perkins Cole law firm $683,316.42 in the first quarter of 2009 to keep those records from being released. That’s on top of the $378,375.52 he paid them in the last quarter of 2008.

Re: "Indonesia required you to be a citizen of that nation to go to school there which he did..."

But Indonesia DID NOT REQUIRE you to be a citizen of that nation to go to school there. That is a birther fantasy, a lie created by birthers and only by birthers. It is not true. There was no such law. Want to check? There is an obvious way: Call the Indonesian Embassy and ASK, and while you are at it, ask whether Obama was ever an Indonesia citizen or ever had an Indonesian passport.

The answer to make it easy is that (1) there was no such law; (2) he never was an Indonesian citizen; (3) since he was never an Indonesian citizen, he never had an Indonesian passport.

As has been pointed out, you are assuming that Obama had a foreign passport. In addition, the claim that he was admitted to college etc as a foreign student comes from AN APRIL FOOL'S ARTICLE. There is not any evidence behind it at all.

Re: "In contrast, Romney released all his college records."

Answer: Mitt Romney has not released a single college record. Neither, by the way, did McCain, or Bush (his transcript was leaked, but BUSH certainly did not release it), Clinton, Bush41, Reagan, Carter, Ford, Nixon, Etc. Neither did Obama, but then he does not have to since none of the others did either, and Romney certainly hasn't.

Obama paid the law firm for the general legal expenses of the campaign, which includes a great deal more than birther lawsuits, none of which were won by birthers and all of which were won with boilerplate filings (which hardly costs money at all since it is the same thing in every case). And, guess what, since there was never a lawsuit just for the records, Obama did not spend A CENT, not one penny, to keep them from being released. There were lawsuits to keep him off of ballots, and Obama fought those and won, but there was never a lawsuit just for records or, in fact, for anything other than to keep Obama off of the ballot.

America adhered, and still adheres to that practice.

“Under the longstanding English common-law principle of jus soli, persons born within the territory of the sovereign (other than children of enemy aliens or foreign diplomats) are citizens from birth. Thus, those persons born within the United States are "natural born citizens" and eligible to be President.

Re: "if everyone born on U.S. soil is a U.S. citizen then we would be inviting people who have no allegiance towards America at all to be full fledged citizens????? That's asinine."

James Madison disagrees:

"It is an established maxim, that birth is a criterion of allegiance. Birth, however, derives its force sometimes from place, and sometimes from parentage; but, in general, place is the most certain criterion; it is what applies in the United States."

In other words, Madison said, and subsequent laws and Supreme Court rulings have confirmed, that our system assumes that if you are born on US soil and your parents are not foreign diplomats, then you will have allegiance to the USA, and only to the USA.

A person born on US soil who fights against the USA can be tried for treason regardless of the citizenship of his parents and regardless of whether the person has dual citizenship status.

**
The Constitution of the United States, as originally adopted, uses the words "citizen of the United States," and "natural-born citizen of the United States." By the original Constitution, every representative in Congress is required to have been "seven years a citizen of the United States," and every Senator to have been "nine years a citizen of the United States." and "no person except a natural-born citizen, or a citizen of the United States at the time of the adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the office of President."
The Fourteenth Article of Amendment, besides declaring that all persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside,
So when you going to prove me wrong, Flaming Faggot?
Re: "Natural born citizen was never used specifically in regards to Wong Kim Ark's own status as a citizen.
The decision did not confirm that Ark was a Natural born citizen, only a citizen."

Absolutely correct. The US Supreme Court confirmed that Wong Kim Ark was a US citizen because it was a citizenship case, and the issue was whether or not he was a US citizen.

But the Wong Kim Ark ruling ALSO (have you heard the word "also" before?) defined the meaning of Natural Born Citizen. It said:

"It thus clearly appears that, by the law of England for the last three centuries, beginning before the settlement of this country and continuing to the present day, aliens, while residing in the dominions possessed by the Crown of England, were within the allegiance, the obedience, the faith or loyalty, the protection, the power, the jurisdiction of the English Sovereign, and therefore every child born in England of alien parents was a natural-born subject unless the child of an ambassador or other diplomatic agent of a foreign State or of an alien enemy in hostile occupation of the place where the child was born.

III. The same rule was in force in all the English Colonies upon this continent down to the time of the Declaration of Independence, and in the United States afterwards, and continued to prevail under the Constitution as originally established."

That says that the meaning of Natural Born comes from the common law (hence not from Vattel or from natural law). And it says that the meaning refers to the place of birth, thus not to the parents. And it says that every child born in the USA except for the children of foreign diplomats is Natural Born. And it says that the rule was used in Britain, and in the American colonies, and in the early states AND UNDER THE CONSTITUTION.

That is why constitutional scholars say:

“Under the longstanding English common-law principle of jus soli, persons born within the territory of the sovereign (other than children of enemy aliens or foreign diplomats) are citizens from birth. Thus, those persons born within the United States are "natural born citizens" and eligible to be President. Much less certain, however, is whether children born abroad of United States citizens are "natural born citizens" eligible to serve as President ..."---- Edwin Meese, et al, THE HERITAGE GUIDE TO THE CONSTITUTION (2005)[Edwin Meese was Ronald Reagan’s attorney general, and the Heritage Foundation is a well-known Conservative organization.]

And there have been seven state courts ruling on Obama and one that ruled on McCain, and every single one of them referred to the Wong Kim Ark ruling and said that it had defined Natural Born Citizen as every child born in the USA except for foreign diplomats. And the US Supreme Court has just turned down two birther appeals of one of those cases.

Barfer Girks, I see how an illiterate moron could believe the above, but we're dealing with the highest court in the land here. Good thing our Supreme Court has not seated illiterate morons like birthers, right?

Had you read the court's opinion in Ark, you'd know that the above garbage was agrued by the LOSING side in the case, and the court absolutely destroyed the "father's lineage" BS in its opinion.

Sorry, Butthurt Loser, but you're WONG.

IV. It was contended by one of the learned counsel for the United States that the rule of the Roman law, by which the citizenship of the child followed that of the parent, was the true rule of international law, as now recognized in most civilized countries, and had superseded the rule of the common law, depending on birth within the realm, originally founded on feudal considerations.
But at the time of the adoption of the Constitution of the United States in 1789, and long before, it would seem to have been the rule in Europe generally, as it certainly was in France, that, as said by Pothier, "citizens, true and native-born citizens, are those who are born within the extent of the dominion of France," and "mere birth within the realm gives the rights of the native-born citizen, independently of the origin of the father or mother, and of their domicil;" and children born in a foreign country, of a French father who had not established his domicil there nor given up the intention of returning, were also deemed Frenchmen, as Laurent says, by "a favor, a sort of fiction," and Calvo, "by a sort of fiction of exterritoriality, considered as born in France, and therefore invested with French nationality." Pothier Trite des Personnes, pt. 1, tit. 2, sect. 1, nos. 43, 45; Walsh-Serrant v. Walsh-Serrant,(1802) 3 Journal du Palais, 384; S.C., 8 Merlin, Jurisprudence,(5th ed.) Domicile,§ 13; Prefet du Nord v. Lebeau,(1862) Journal du Palais, 1863, 312 and note; 1 Laurent Droit Civil, no. 312; 2 Calvo Droit International,(5th ed.)§ 542; Cockburn on Nationality, 13, 14; Hall's International Law,(4th ed.)§ 68. The general principle of citizenship by birth within French territory prevailed until after the French Revolution, and was affirmed in successive constitutions, from the one adopted by the Constituent Assembly in 1791 to that of the French Republic in 1799. Constitutions et Chartes,(ed. 1830) pp. 100, 136, 148, 186.[667] The Code Napoleon of 1807 changed the law of France, and adopted, instead of the rule of country of birth, jus soli, the rule of descent or blood, just sanguinis, as the leading principle; but an eminent commentator has observed that the framers of that code "appear not to have wholly freed themselves from the ancient rule of France, or rather, indeed, ancient rule of Europe -- de la vieille regle francaise, ou plutot meme de la vieille regle europeenne -- according to which nationality had always been, in former times, determined by the place of birth." 1 Demolombe Cours de Code Napoleon,(4th ed.) no. 146.
