May 31, 2011, I published a column titled “Obama for President… of
Kenya?” In that piece I reminded readers that Obama will be only 55 years, 5 months, and 16 days old, a relatively young man, when he completes his four-year presidential impersonation on January 20, 2013. That will be the day when he walks out of the White House for the last time, having brought the greatest, freest, most prosperous nation on Earth to the very brink of disaster.
I asked, what should we do with such a man… a man who promised a bedazzled electorate in 2008 that his goal was to totally transform our constitutional republic into a European-style socialist state? Should he be arrested for his crimes and sentenced to spend the rest of his days behind bars? Or would the members of his party insulate him, insisting that his sham presidency was just their way of having a little fun with us…“water under the bridge,” so to speak?
I suggested that Obama may have his long term future already planned… assuming that he would be allowed to leave the country, a free man. As a man whose boundless narcissism has led him to “sweet-talk” his way into the presidency of the United States… the most unqualified man ever to set foot in the Oval Office… would it be too much of a stretch to imagine him returning to his beloved Kenya, the land of his forebears, to serve as president of that country?
If that sounds a bit farfetched, consider this: With little notice by the
U.S. media, the people of
Kenya have paved the way for Obama to do just that. With the help of $23 million in USAID funds… spent in support of a “yes” vote… the people of Kenya adopted a new constitution on August 4, 2010, Obama’s 49th birthday. (Nice touch, eh?)
Consider these facts:
Obama tells us that he was born in
August 4, 1961 to an American mother, Stanley Ann Dunham, and to Barack Hussein Obama, Sr., a Luo tribesman from
Kenya, a British colony. Part 2, Section 5(1) of the British Nationality Act of 1948, the controlling legal authority on who is British and who is not, reads, in part, as follows:
“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…”
Obama’s father was a British subject at the time of his birth. Therefore, under British law, it is indisputable that Obama was born with dual US-British citizenship “by descent” from his Kenyan father and his American mother. However, following
Kenya’s independence from
Great Britain on
December 12, 1963,
Kenya’s newly-adopted constitution went into effect. Chapter VI, Section 87 of the 1963 constitution provided as follows: “(1) Every person who, having been born in Kenya, is on 11th December, 1963 a citizen of the United Kingdom and Colonies (Barack Obama, Sr,)… shall become a citizen of Kenya on 12th December 1963…
“(2) Every person who, having been born outside Kenya, is on 11th December, 1963 a citizen of the United Kingdom and Colonies (Barack Obama, Jr.)… shall, if his father becomes, or would but for his death have become a citizen of
Kenya by virtue of subsection (1), become a citizen of
12th December, 1963.”
In other words, on
December 12, 1963, through automatic operation of Kenyan law, Barack Obama became a citizen of
Kenya, giving him, at least temporarily, dual US-Kenyan citizenship. He did not actively seek British or Kenyan citizenship; they were his by “automatic operation” of British and Kenyan law and “by descent” from his Kenyan father.
However, at the time of their independence in 1963, Kenyans were not too keen on the idea of adults holding dual nationality. Chapter VI, Section 97 of the 1963 constitution provided that: “A person who, upon the attainment of the age of twenty-one years, is a citizen of Kenya and also a citizen of some country other than Kenya (Barack Obama, Jr.) shall, subject to subsection (7), cease to be a citizen of Kenya upon the specified date unless he has renounced his citizenship of that other country, taken the oath of allegiance and, in the case of a person who was born outside Kenya, made and registered such declaration of his intentions concerning residence as may be prescribed by or under an Act of Parliament.”
Since there is no known evidence that Obama ever took steps to renounce his American citizenship, he automatically lost his Kenyan citizenship on or about his 21st birthday. However, the newly adopted 2010 Kenyan constitution brought Obama back into the fold by creating a new category of Kenyan citizenship called “citizen by birth.” Chapter 3, Section 14 of the 2010 constitution provides as follows: “(1) A person is a citizen by birth if on the day of the person’s birth, whether or not the person is born in Kenya, either the mother or father of the person is a citizen (of Kenya).
“(5) A person who is a Kenyan citizen by birth and who, on the effective date, has ceased to be a Kenyan citizen because the person acquired citizenship of another country, is entitled on application to regain Kenyan citizenship.”
In other words, Chapter 3, Section 14, Subsections 1 and 5, invest Obama with status as a Kenyan “citizen by birth” and allow him to apply for reinstatement as a citizen of
Kenya. The 2010 constitution also reverses the Kenyan policy on dual citizenship in Obama’s favor. Chapter 3, Section 16 of the new constitution provides that, “A citizen by birth does not lose citizenship by acquiring the citizenship of another country.”
What this tells us is quite disturbing. It tells us that, since
August 4, 2010, Barack Obama has been a “citizen of
Kenya by birthy. It is precisely the reason why the Founding Fathers insisted that only “natural born” citizens should ever serve as president or vice president. Having been born with dual US-British citizenship, Barack Obama does not qualify as “natural born.”
But the 2012 Kenyan constitution is even more Obama-friendly. Chapter 9, Section 137 of the constitution provides that: “(1) A person qualifies for nomination as a presidential candidate if the person… is a citizen by birth;” However, in order to prevent a person with divided loyalties from ever becoming President of Kenya, Chapter 9, Section 137 provides that: “(2) A person is not qualified for nomination as a presidential candidate if the person… owes allegiance to a foreign state;” In short, upon completion of his four years in the White House, Obama will be eligible to serve two five-year terms as President of Kenya… so long as he first renounces his U.S. citizenship.
A suspicious person might suspect that the $23 million spent in
Kenya in 2010 might have been a mere down-payment on Obama’s long-term plans, a mere pittance when compared to what we are spending in
Kenya in 2012. According to a
June 20, 2012 WND article by Steve Peacock, “Barack Obama administration spending and projects in
Kenya have become so voluminous that (USAID) must hire more contractors to oversee endeavors other providers already carry out across the African nation.” In other words, Obama is spending so much money in
Kenya that he needs to hire more overseers to oversee the overseers.
The $480 million now being spent by USAID in
Kenya “encompasses numerous assistance projects in general areas such as health, population, and HIV/AIDS; basic education; youth; governing justly and democratically; and economic growth, environment, and natural resources management.” However, this amount of money represents just over half of the total that is spent in
Kenya, the largest recipient of
U.S. aid in sub-Saharan
If one were a bit Machiavellian, one might suggest that, for Obama to spend the equivalent of $23 for every man, woman, and child in
Kenya (not an insignificant sum in that country), he has learned his vote-buying lessons well in the Democratic precincts of south
Chicago. And to those who suggest that Obama may not be happy ruling over a population of only 39 million people, after having used a population of 314 million as his own private socialist laboratory, allow me to suggest that Obama may have something far more grandiose in mind. After winning election as President of Kenya, what’s to stop a man who’s seen as God-like in
Africa from confederating all of the nations of sub-Saharan
Africa into one large union, much like the
United States of America? He might even call it the United States of Africa (USA), while he advertised himself as the “George Washington of
Africa,” the most powerful black man in world history.
Obama would have yet another distinction to add to his Nobel Peace Prize… after having done absolutely nothing in the interest of world peace. He will serve as president in a country where they’ve erected a statue of him before… not after… he served as president of the country, a truly remarkable achievement. And finally, renouncing their American citizenship and acquiring Kenyan citizenship will give Michelle Obama something she’s always longed for… a country she can be truly proud of.
Barack Hussein Obama, President of
Kenya? Who knows? When a man of his meager abilities can work his way into the
U.S. presidency, we should not be surprised at anything he might do. Just remember… you read it here first.

After hearing of the U.S. Supreme Court ruling today, another instance of betrayal by a Bush-nominated justice, I am truly heartbroken. We are having 20 guests for our annual 4th of July celebration on Saturday and my wife had just finished decorating the front of our house with flags when I heard the news. I thought of taking them down, but I may just fly them at half mast instead.
Later this afternoon, as I was studying the history of Obamacare, I discovered something very interesting that I hope our conservative leaders will pursue. The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, otherwise known as Obamacare, was signed into law by Barack Obama on
March 23, 2010. The bill originated in the House of Representatives as H.R. 3590, a bill relating to housing tax breaks for military personnel. However, the Senate failed to act on the bill as passed by the House. Instead, the Senate stripped H.R. 3590 of all tax provisions approved by the House, leaving nothing but a blank piece of paper with a bill number, H.R. 3590, at the top. The Senate then used H.R. 3590 as the sole vehicle for healthcare reform, adding proposals that had been reported favorably by the Senate Finance Committee and the Senate Health, Education, and Labor committees. H.R. 3590 passed the Senate on
December 24, 2009 by a vote of 60–39, with all Democrats and the two Independents voting for the bill, and all but one Republican voting against. It went to the House where it passed on
March 21, 2010, by a vote of 219–212, with 34 Democrats and all 178 Republicans voting against it.
The problem with all this is that Article I, Section 7 of the Constitution tells us that all revenue bills MUST originate in the House of Representatives. Technically speaking, H.R. 3590 was written in the U.S. Senate and originated there. Now that the chief justice has declared that the penalties contained in Obamacare are, in fact, taxes, we may be back before the court sooner than we thought.
