The ONEORLANDO fund now has $7 MILLION in it and money will be "distributed directly to survivors"

I guess that could be a reason to keep quiet, just like the homeowners around Sandy Hook all sold their homes on Christmas.

Romulus Saunders was Chairman of the Judiciary Committee, and comprehensively reviewed the early naturalization Acts pertaining to the power of Congress "to establish a uniform rule of naturalization" in this report before Congress from 1845. Of the NA 1790 he says, " it provided for the children of citizens born in foreign countries." (i.e. THOSE CHILDREN WERE NATURALIZED, NOT NATURAL BORN CITIZENS). He says that the NA 1795 "provided for the children of aliens residing in the country, and for the children of US Citizens born abroad." (i.e. THOSE CHILDREN ARE NATURALIZED). Of the NA 1802 he says "it repeals all previous Acts" and that "it provides for the children of aliens, WHETHER BORN WITHIN OR OUT OF THE US, BUT MAKES NO PROVISION FOR THE CHILDREN OF US CITIZENS BORN ABROAD." (children of aliens born in the US were naturalized at the time of the naturalization of the parents before the childrens' 21 st. birthday---- NA 1802 S. 4)

This PROVES beyond a doubt that the class of natural born Citizens did not and DOES NOT (A2S1C5 has never been amended) include the children of aliens born w/in the US or the children of US Citizens born abroad. CASE CLOSED.

What did Kinsolving say about the seal?

Nonsense. The "verification letters" did not even verify who the father was or when the birth day was.

A picture on a website is proof of NOTHING. The political hacks at "Factcheck" (we make up our own facts) were not document experts. NO ONE has touched the supposed "raised seal" that is on the back of the document and supposedly gives Hawaii "full faith and credit" by its own statutes.
Even if the "birth certificate" is to be believed. Hussein Obama's birth to a foreign father voids eligibility as a natural born Citizen, no matter if birth occurred on the Oval Office desk..

Nonsense OBOT.

Here is Marshall in The Venus explaining how Vattel controls the decision based on the natural law concept of "habitation", as he applies Vattel's law of nations.

"As this question is not only decisive of many claims now depending before this Court, but is also of vast importance to our merchants generally, I may be excused for stating at some length the reasons on which my opinion is founded.

The whole system of decisions applicable to this subject rests on the law of nations as its base. It is therefore of some importance to inquire how far the writers on that law consider the subjects of one power residing within the territory of another, as retaining their original character or partaking of the character of the nation in which they reside.

Vattel, who, though not very full to this point, is more explicit and more satisfactory on it than any other whose work has fallen into my hands, says

"The citizens are the members of the civil society; bound to this society by certain duties, and subject to its authority, they equally participate in its advantages. The natives or indigenes are those born in the country of parents who are citizens. Society not being able to subsist and to perpetuate itself but by the children of the citizens, those children naturally follow the condition of their fathers, and succeed to all their rights."

"The inhabitants, as distinguished from citizens, are strangers who are permitted to settle and stay in the country. Bound by their residence to the society, they are subject to the laws of the state while they reside there, and they are obliged to defend it because it grants them protection, though they do not participate in all the rights of citizens".

Go crawl into your hole Obot. Here is Sosa v. Alvarez- Machain (2004) explaining the different aspects of law of nations, which encompasses Maritime law as an aspect cognizable judicially.

"When the United States declared their independence,
they were bound to receive the law of nations, in its modern
state of purity and refinement.î Ware v. Hylton, 3 Dall.
199, 281 (1796) (Wilson, J.). In the years of the early Republic,
this law of nations comprised two principal elements,
the first covering the general norms governing the
behavior of national states with each other: ìthe science
which teaches the rights subsisting between nations or
states, and the obligations correspondent to those rights,î
E. de Vattel, The Law of Nations, Preliminaries ß3
(J. Chitty et al. transl. and ed. 1883) (hereinafter Vattel)
(footnote omitted), or ìthat code of public instruction
which defines the rights and prescribes the duties of nations,
in their intercourse with each other,î 1 James Kent
Commentaries *1. This aspect of the law of nations thus
Opinion of the Court
occupied the executive and legislative domains, not the
judicial. See 4 W. Blackstone, Commentaries on the Laws
of England 68 (1769) (hereinafter Commentaries) (ì[O]ffenses
againstî the law of nations are ìprincipally incident
to whole states or nationsî).
The law of nations included a second, more pedestrian
element, however, that did fall within the judicial sphere,
as a body of judge-made law regulating the conduct of
individuals situated outside domestic boundaries and
consequently carrying an international savor. To Blackstone,
the law of nations in this sense was implicated ìin
mercantile questions, such as bills of exchange and the
like; in all marine causes, relating to freight, average,
demurrage, insurances, bottomry . . . ; [and] in all disputes
relating to prizes, to shipwrecks, to hostages, and ransom
bills.î Id., at 67. The law merchant emerged from the
customary practices of international traders and admiralty
required its own transnational regulation. And it
was the law of nations in this sense that our precursors
spoke about when the Court explained the status of coast
fishing vessels in wartime grew from ìancient usage
among civilized nations, beginning centuries ago, and
gradually ripening into a rule of international law . . . .î
The Paquete Habana, 175 U. S. 677, 686 (1900).
There was, finally, a sphere in which these rules binding
individuals for the benefit of other individuals overlapped
with the norms of state relationships. Blackstone referred
to it when he mentioned three specific offenses against the
law of nations addressed by the criminal law of England:
violation of safe conducts, infringement of the rights of
ambassadors, and piracy. 4 Commentaries 68. An assault
against an ambassador, for example, impinged upon the
sovereignty of the foreign nation and if not adequately
redressed could rise to an issue of war. See Vattel 463,
464. It was this narrow set of violations of the law of nations,
admitting of a judicial remedy and at the same time
threatening serious consequences in international affairs,
that was probably on minds of the men who drafted the
ATS with its reference to tort".
