    (Jan. 23, 2024) — The blowback continues on the Substack article posted by one Paul Ingrassia positing that Nikki Haley is constitutionally ineligible because she is likely not a natural born Citizen (“nbC”) as required by Art. 2, § 1, Cl. 5 of the Constitution. Guess what: Ingrassia is more than likely absolutely correct. He contends that, in order to be an nbC, one needs to be born on U.S. soil to two parents who at that time are already U.S. citizens. This, of course, is the definition articulated by Swiss attorney, jurist and scholar Emer de Vattel in §...

    Nikki Haley, the daughter of two non-citizens, is patently ineligible to serve as President or Vice President under Article II, Section 1 of the Constitution The following analysis is a detailed response to critiques of an article I wrote earlier this month that garnered national attention, and was even Truthed by President Trump, shedding light on Nikki Haley’s ineligibility to serve as President or Vice President under the Constitution. My article was published originally on my Substack and American Greatness, and was titled “The Constitution Absolutely Prohibits Nikki Haley From Being President Or Vice President.” As A Threshold Matter, Nikki...

    American Greatness ^ | January 13, 2024 | Paul Ingrassia
    There is a reason the Founding Fathers attached the requirement of being a “natural born citizen” to the President (and, with the passage of the Twelfth Amendment, the Vice President) only and no other federal offices. The idea was to elevate the threshold for the highest elected political office of the land; notably, that language is absent in Article I, which stipulates that lawmakers running for the House or Senate need only be “citizens” to qualify. The early debates surrounding the passage of the Constitution add support for the view that the Framers wanted to exclude “the admission of foreigners...

    (Jan. 12, 2024) — Following up on the presidential eligibility posts recently appearing at The P&E here and here, the New York Post – founded, BTW, by Alexander Hamilton in 1801 – has come out and slammed President Trump’s suggestion that Nikki Haley is likely ineligible to the presidency. The Post labels President Trump’s suggestion that Haley is not a “natural born Citizen” (“nbC”) under the Constitution as being “bonkers.” Really? Where to start, where to start? First, President Trump’s post questioned Nikki Haley’s eligibility primarily in terms of her pursuit of the presidency, but it also addressed her likely...

    (Jan. 9, 2024) — Well, whatta ya know…, it seems that the “natural born Citizen” (“nbC”) issue may finally be getting some renewed traction. The following offering is made as a supplement to the recent one posted on the presidential “eligibility” topic by the intrepid P&E Editor here. As noted there, President Trump has recently posted to his TruthSocial website a comment referencing an article by one Paul Ingrassia. Ingrassia holds a law degree from Cornell University Law School and at one time interned for President Trump’s National Economic Council. In her recent post, the intrepid P&E Editor teasingly posits...
  • President Trump Goes There: Retruths that that Haley is not constitutionally eligible to be president because her parents were not US citizens when she was born in South Carolina.

    CNN — It was only a matter of time before former President Donald Trump went birther on Nikki Haley. After all, the former South Carolina governor and UN Ambassador is a pioneering candidate, the daughter of immigrants from India, and she’s rising in the polls. It’s not only concern about his electoral prospects that’s driving him; Trump’s massive yet fragile ego also feels threatened. So he reached for the most reflexive slur he could find via the far-right news site Gateway Pundit, reposting on Truth Social the false claim that Haley is not constitutionally eligible to be president because her...

    (Jan. 2, 2024) — On Tuesday morning, New York State resident and registered voter Robert C. Laity lodged a revised formal complaint with the state’s Division of Election Law Enforcement regarding the New York State Board of Elections’s (NYSBOE) “misstating the criteria for being elected as President of the United States.” The original December 30, 2023 complaint contained a clerical error which Laity corrected in this morning’s submission. NYSBOE members are listed here, with Laity naming co-chairman Peter S. Kosinski in Section 2 of the complaint form in accordance with the instructions. Instead of the Article II, Section 1, clause...

    Laura Loomer, a die-hard Trump supporter, is taking a page out of Hillary Clinton’s playbook by going into full birther mode.'Nikki Haley Is An Anchor Baby Who Is Unqualified To Be US President,” an article posted to her website on Christmas Eve insists. Her piece argues that since her parents were Indian immigrants who didn’t become naturalized U.S. citizens until after her birth, Haley is an “anchor baby” with birthright citizenship and doesn’t qualify as a “natural born citizen."She shared her article on X/Twitter, and users promptly flagged it with a Community Note.NEW:@NikkiHaley Is An Anchor Baby Who Is Unqualified...

    (Oct. 22, 2023) — Vivek Ramaswamy Admits in NBC News Interview His Parents Were Not U.S. Citizens When He Was Born. This was deduced and suspected previously but he has finally admitted it. Vivek Ramaswamy admitted during live interview in Sep 2023 on NBC News that neither of his parents when he was born were citizens of the USA. Also, he admitted that although his mother later became a U.S. citizen his father never did. Watch the interview starting at about 26:08 into the full interview: or see the relevant four minute excerpt of the interview at this link:...

    (Jul. 17, 2023) — Well, faithful P&E readers, here we go again. As another “exploratory” candidate for president appears on the scene – Dr. Shiva Ayyadurai –, it may be prudent to once again revisit the Supreme Court’s 1875 decision in Minor v. Happersett. While the major holding of the case (i.e., that Missouri’s denial of suffrage to women did not violate the 14th Amendment) was abrogated 45 years later in 1920 by the 19th Amendment, the question remains as to whether the decision’s other “observations” and “comments” remain viable and relevant to the “natural born Citizen” (“nbC”) presidential eligibility...

Bush) and Neal Katyal (a Democrat replacing Elena Kagan when President Obama...
  • Disinformation is Circulating About Ron DeSantis’ Mother’s Birth Location – She Was Born In/Near Poland Ohio not the Country of Poland in Europe

    (Jun. 5, 2023) — It is unclear at this time who is behind the circulating stories since early March 2023 with disinformation about Ron DeSantis’s mother Karen Ann (nee Rogers) DeSantis’ birth location. The disinformation articles claim she was born in Poland and later moved with her parents to the USA. See the articles here and here. But that statement per my genealogy research is not true. Most of these sites are not allowing comments to counteract the false information therein. They seem to want it to spread unimpeded and unchallenged. Note: These “clever disinformation use of the place name...

    (May 25, 2023) — The biography in the 1991 pamphlet published by the Acton and Dystel literary agency promoting Obama’s 1991 book “Journeys in Black and White” stated Barack Obama “was born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia and Hawaii”. Said early life details are always provided by the author to his agent. The Obama biography in subsequent editions of the pamphlets (with various life accomplishment updates) continued to say he was “born in Kenya” for 17 years until Obama entered the race for President and his backers and enabling media started the “clean up ” and online purge of...

  • States Should Enforce “Natural Born Citizen” Requirement

    03/18/2023 10:56:28 PM PDT · by CDR Kerchner · 58 replies
    (Mar. 18, 2023) — The Constitution requires the president to be a “natural born citizen”. However, the term is not defined in the Constitution. Neither has a law or court ruling been made more exactly delineating the constraints of the term. The purpose of this post is not to re-hash the arguments about what “natural born citizen” means, but to outline a process that generates a legal standard for how it is enforced. The States are key to this process. This proposal is to have one or more states enforce via legislation the implementation of the requirement in their state,...

Vivek Ramaswamy, a millionaire biotech entrepreneur who has established himself as a prominent critic of “woke culture” in regular Fox News appearances, appeared on Hannity Thursday night to discuss his longshot bid for the presidency. “You’re looking for the Republican nomination,” Hannity said to his guest. “Probably the leader right now would be Donald Trump if you look a the polls.

    Nikki Haley fails the three legged stool test! (Jan. 30, 2023) — Both of Nikki Haley’s parents were not U.S. Citizens when Nikki was born. Nikki Haley was born to a Citizen of India father (minus one stool leg) and to a Citizen of India mother (minus the 2nd stool leg). The normal path to becoming a naturalized U.S. Citizen takes five years. Nikki Haley was born in 1972 . Her father and mother emigrated from India to Canada and then to the USA in 1969. Thus there was not sufficient time for either of Nikki’s parents to become naturalized...
