<quoted text>John Bingham did not consider children born in the US of alien parents to owe allegiance to any foreign sovereignty. He believed as did James Madison that place of birth is the surest criterion of allegiance. A child born on US soil owes complete and immediate allegiance to the United States by the tie of natural allegiance, which pertains to the natural born citizen, consistent with natural law as elaborated according to Sir William Blackstone in his Commentaries.
Bingham stated that birth in the US is what makes one a natural born citizen. He said it before and after 1866.
Bingham's statements are inconsistent with Dufus Dales hare-brained redefinition of jurisdiction which turns sovereignty on its head.
“The constitution leaves no room for doubt upon this subject. The words “natural-born citizen of the United States” occur in it, and the other provisions also occur in it that “Congress shall have power to pass a uniform system of naturalization.” Who are natural-born citizens but those born within the republic? Those born within the Republic, whether black or white, are citizens by birth—natural-born citizens. John Bingham, Cong. Globe 37th Cong., 2nd Sess. 1639 (1862).
“Who does not know that every person born within the limits of the Republic is, in the language of the Constitution, a natural-born citizen. Who does not know, therefore, that all the natural born persons in the United States, men, women, and children, are citizens of the United States.” Rep. Bingham Cong. Globe 40th Cong. 2nd Sess. 2212 (1868).
LMAO!!! It doesn't matter. When a child is born in the US of an alien father, it automatically receives its citizenship from its father, we practice the same when a child is born outside the limits of the US, makes no difference the condition of the mother.

Senator Trumbull drafted the Act and explained in detail exactly the intent. The intent of the Act was similarly understood, and plainly stated as such by Rep. John Bingham and Sen. Jacob Howard. Their intent was conveyed to the US courts via the rules of statutory construction and consistent with their stated intent, the courts interpreted the language in precisely the same manner.
Sorry Dufus Dale, the meaning of the Act was according to the intent of Congress and they did not believe in the Play Law definition of jurisdiction. It is the height of lunacy to construe Congressional intent according to a fantasy definition of jurisdiction at odds with the prevailing accepted definition (which was the same then as it is now.)
BTW, has Dale ever written a formal definition of jurisdiction according to his disjointed fantasies? Of course not. it would crash and burn.
Regarding Dale's burning question:
Has Dale ever figured out that an alien is not necessarily a citizen of any country? The state of alienage is applied to anyone who is not a citizen of a country while residing in that country.

<quoted text>Yes, in 1868 the law was in place to deny citizenship to children born here of aliens/foreign powers.
Every court case since 1898 dealing with citizenship has been in violation of the Constitution.
Looks like the congress has a monumental task in their future and of course we know how that will turnout, just as it has in the past 115 years. "Kick the can down the road!"
The law was in place to deny citizenship to children born here of aliens? And nobody knew it? Not the framers, not the Congress. Not the President. Not the people at large? All the children of alien German immigrants in Pennsylvania retained their US citizenship. There is not one case of a single person born of an alien parent in the US who lost US citizenship on account having an alien parent (other than Indians born on a reservation). The only persons who the government attempted to excluded were Chinese (Look Tin Sing and Wong Kim Ark in particular) and they were found to be natural born citizens.

Looks like Dufus Dale is still living in his dream world.

Nobody but nobody before or after the 14th Amendment has ever believed in Dale's fanciful disjointed and contradictory application of the word, jurisdiction. Yet he believes his fantasy should be applied as the Congressional intent of the Amendment. Positively psychotic.

So if the framers of the 14th and the Congress were so enlightened as the brilliant-in-his-own-mind Dale they would have understood what jurisdiction really meant so that's what we should apply now?

That's so pathetic it's not funny. It's sad. So delusional.

Too bad Rep. Bingham and Senators Trumbull and Howard are not alive today. If they were Dale could tell them what they really meant when they fashioned the 14th Amendment and he could give them a lesson on the true meaning of "jurisdiction" which apparently no one else in the world has ever understood.

There are many stateless people in the world. The fact that Dufus is ignorant doesn't change that fact.

It is not the alien's relationship with a foreign country that makes him an alien but his lack of tie to the country he resides in that makes him an alien. For this reason it wouldn't matter if 100 countries considered Obama as a citizen when he was born. All that matters is according to US law he was born a US citizen. He was born with the tie of natural allegiance (allegiance by birth) by birth on US soil.

Natural allegiance “In American law, That allegiance due from citizens of the United States to their native or adopted country, and which, it seems, cannot be renounced without the permission of government, to be declared by law. 2 Kent’s Com. 43-49.” Alexander Mansfield Burrill, 2 A Law Dictionary and Glossary, at 220 (2nd ed. 1870).

Obama was born a citizen of his father's country, with citizenship comes the natural allegiance, whether born in Kenya or the US.

Crash and burn. Pathetic.

A country has a certain jurisdiction whether it is a constitutional republic, monarchy, or other form of government. A definition of jurisdiction of a government is not dependent on any particular form of government. See for example the definition in Black's Law Dictionary.

jurisdiction, n.(14c) 1. A government's general power to exercise authority over all persons and things within its territory;

The Constitution makes reference to the jurisdiction of the United States.(Does Dufus believe this is a self-reference to the constitution?) Dale seems incapable of defining the jurisdiction of the United States; rather he conflates the terms constitution and jurisdiction. While authority to exercise power flows from the constitution, jurisdiction i.e., the actual power to exercise within the dominion is not a document. The limits of a jurisdiction are not the four corners of a document but a territory over which dominion is exercised.

He seems to believe that the jurisdiction of the United States, the power to exercise authority within its borders is limited to its own citizens. This turns the notion of sovereignty on its head. A country needs no permission from a foreign power to govern within its own borders.

Dale needs to get educated and to grow up.

When I was in Kuala Lumpur there was someone selling passports for any where,there was also a guy laying on the sidewalk with fake blood on his leg waiting for visitors to give him money.

"Every child born in the United States is a natural-born United States citizen except for the children of diplomats.”---Senator Lindsay Graham (December 11, 2008 letter to constituents)

Answer: All human institutions and people make mistakes. The ultimate decision-maker on the US Constitution is a constitutional amendment, which requires a two-thirds vote of both houses of Congress and a three-quarters vote of the state legislatures. Until that comes along, the decision of the US Supreme Court is the final legal interpretation.
A reversal of the US Supreme Court ruling by a Constitutional Amendment or by the court reversing itself is far from likely in the immediate future (or even in the distant future), since so many legal scholars and appeals courts support what the Wong Kim Ark ruling said, and since the Declaration of Independence says that all men are created equal (and if the writers of the US Constitution had intended to make an exception to that, they surely would have told us).
Rep. Bingham was considered the expert on this subject and contrary to your repeated comments,he completely disagreed with your statement. Rep. Bingham would not consider Obama as being eligible to serve that office. You should read up on his position before you cherry pick his statement. If Rexall has a Buy one bottle of Listerine,get a bottle of Listerine free does not mean that you can simply cut ( get a bottle of Listerine free ) and paste and not pay anything for a bottle of Listerine.

LMAO!!! What does WKA v. US say about citizenship of other countries, just thought I would let you know!

(Para. 34) Nor can it be doubted that it is the inherent right of every independent nation to determine for itself, and according to its own constitution and laws, what classes of persons shall be entitled to its citizenship.

Yep, Ark was born a citizen of China in the US and of course that would mean he wasn't eligible for citizenship in the US.

In 1866 we made the decision to not give citizenship to those that were subject to foreign powers and it was carried over into the 14th amendment with the clause "and subject to the jurisdiction, thereof" and everyone knows that an alien has never been subject to the jurisdiction of the US Constitution, only citizens enjoy that right.

The constitution has no power to exercise authority and is therefore not a jurisdiction. Authority flows from the constitution but it is the government that exercises authority. Thus the "jurisdiction of the United States" refers to the general power of the government to exercise authority over all persons and things within its territory.

The United States HAS jurisdiction which is a certain defined power within its territory. A document and a government's actual power are two very different subjects which the borfoon conflates.

Poor Dufus has not even addressed the essential elements of jurisdiction. Power, authority, and territory.

Pathetically psychotic.
