Constitution Amendment XIV, Sectiqn 1 and 2. At the time of the alleged action
taken by the Defendant, he was acti9g in the exact manor as Defendant, John S.
McCain, who by and through his esteemed counsel, Mr. David]. Bodney,
(listed in "Who's who in American Lar", "The Best Lawyers in America",
and"Southwest Super Lawyers") has stated that "McCain was acting
solely as a political candidate and a private person in his 2008 campaign" (doc. #18,
I
page 11, lines 18 and 19) and Plaintiff is respectful of counsel's credentials and is in
full concurrence with that assessment lthat both Defendants were void of any action
preformed in an official capacity or in<flividual capacity on behalf of the United States
I
Government invested by their United States Senatorial Position, with the addition
I
that both Defendants' action in this matter were taken under the color of
I
Arizona statutes at Title 16 of the A.R.S.. Plaintiff's assertion as to being under the
I
color of State statute is confirmed by United States Supreme Court in Smith v.
Allwright 321 U.S. 649 (1944). The Juestion before the Court in Smith v. Allwright
was, is an action by a national political party "governmental action" for purposes of
,
enforcing Article II and Amendment *IVof the United States Constitution? See
Doc.#25, page 1, line 23 through 2, line 18.
I
The Court, in Smith v. Allwrig't, examined whether the action of the
political party was state action or privrte action. It was determined that since
primaries were conducted by the under statutory authority, the party was an
agency of the state insofar as it deter4uned the participants in the primary election.
The party took its character as a agency from the duties imposed on it by the
I
state statutes, and the duties did not lj>ecome matters of private law, simply because
they were preformed by a political
I
Whereas, there exists no claimIfor relief that couches upon the United States
Government, or any officer, agency, lpartment, division or corporation, company,
or other than the private persons of t e two Defendants in this action, this action is
purely a civil matter between three pa ties all acting in a private person capacity
under authority granted by the State Arizona Revised Statutes at Title 16. And
whereas, there exists in this action no flaim of any offence that touches on any

" Q. Can the Department of Justide provide legal assistance to private citizens?
A. No. The Department of is not authorized to provide legal assistance to
I
private citizens or to represent them, exc,pt in instances where the Department ofJustice
has determined it will provide representation to a person who has filed a complaint with the
Department of Labor ("DOL") under the pniformed Services Employment &
Reemployment Rights Act of 1994 and complaint has been referred to us by DOL. ".
I
(Copy hereto attached as exhibit B, threelpages.).
MOOTNESS OF THE DOJ IN REPRESENTATION OF
DEFENDANT BARACK OBAMA
Whereas, this case is brought this Honorable Court for an alleged action of
fraud, by sworn false statement fact, perpetrated upon the Plaintiffby two
Defendants that just, as an exculpatory istue, happened to be sitting United States Senators,
does not make this an action against any,ofthe aforementioned (U.S. Government or its
agencies, corporations, officers or for the purpose of service of process in this
action as stated above. Plaintiff asserts a statement made within the body of a
complaint does not change the character the redress sought when no relief is sought in
connection with that statement, and thereby does not change or alter the position in relation
,
to the Defendants.
Whereby, for the preceding, thereI is no reason for the Plaintiff to serve any
documents upon the counsel that now att¥mpts to enter into this action in violation oftheir
own dictates as demonstrated by exhibit (hereto attached). And with the preceding being
factual, this Honorable Court must the attempt by unlawful representation to
thwart the law and FRCivP in presenting Ian after the fact objection to Plaintiffs proper
I
second request for the Clerk ofthis Honttable Court to enter a lawful and proper judgment
pursuant to Rule 55 (a)(b)(l). This requires no further review.
I
Furthermore, Plaintiff wishes to tquire as to why DOJ counsel for Defendant B.O.
should not be sanctioned for their misreplesentation ofthe FRCiv.P to this Honorable

to Default) by deliberately omitting rest of the quote which states as follows;
"...for an act or omission occurring in conneJtion with duties performed on the United States behalf

the rules are the whole rules, not just part that opposing counsel likes or serves

I
DOJ COUNSEL FOR BO IMPUES CASE ABSURD OR
FILED FOR PURlfSE OF HARASSMENT?
I
Plaintiff, now presents to this H:onorable Court substantial prima facia
I
evidence of the alleged sworn false statement of material fact executed upon exhibit
I
A which is hereto attached in order to Iclarify the real case or controversy which is
I
before this Honorable Court. i
I
1. Docket #4, paragraph IO-If statements by reference here, are now
presented as exhibit C (5 pages) and isl hereto attached along with a copy of email
I
communication (request, no use of with Mr. Bill Thompson, owner of
"eyeonbooks.com". These admissions qy the Defendant BO, to a reasonable mind
would bring the conclusion that more ¥kely than not, which is the bar in a civil case
at law, that the Defendant has admitted dual citizenship. Plaintiff is in posession on
I
the audio version also if this Honorablf Court so requests.
I
2. Docket #4, paragraph 22 a1d 23 statements by reference here, are now
presented to show that Defendant BOI should have, or did and does know the
requirements of the United States in respect to the sworn false
statement of material fact executed uPon exhibit A (hereto attached). Defendant
BO's abbreviated resume, placed on t Ie internet for public consumption at,
http://www.barackobama.com/about/.paid for by "Organizing for America" a
project of the DNC, is hereto attache as exhibit D, two pages.

511, which is cosponsored by Defendart B.O., agreed upon and presented to the
citizenry of the United States on April 130, 2008. Plaintiff asserts that a reasonable
mind, asked to review same, would come to the conclusion that Defendant
B.O.is in agreement with the concept to be a "natural born citizen" requires
Two (2) parents which are citizens of United States and to be born in a sovereign
territory of the United States (United $tates soil). This is not the condition of
I
Defendant B.O.'s birth by self which shall be further expanded in the
I
following. In other words, it is more rntely, than not, that Defendant B.O. is not a
"natural born citizen" as required on t,e ARS 16-242 filed with the Secretary of
State of Arizona (see exhibit A hereto and conversely, more likely, than
I
not, a dual national citizen at birth. '
4. Docket #4, paragraph 47 by reference here, Plaintiff further presents the
download of the 4 page "fight the com" article "The Truth About Barack's
Birth Certificate", hereto attached as 9xhibit F, 4 pages, which is odd in that there is
really no text on four pages that is dmi,nloadable except for the image of the
"certificate of live birth" which has theI authentication number blacked out ( a
violation of law) and is clearly marked lin the border that, "Any alterations invalidate
,
this certificate" (making it moot), but J:>earing a statement about the 1948 British
Nationality Act governing Defendant J3.0.'s citizenship that is superimposed over
the image of the document. A reasonaple mind would properly conclude from review
I
of this, that Defendant B.O. is, more J/kely than nor, a dual national citizen at birth,
and not a "natural born citizen" as reqWred on the ARS 16-242 as is filed with the
i
Secretary of State in Arizona, a obtainable document.
5. Docket #4, paragraphs 48 49 by reference here, Plaintiff further
I
presents the download of the 3 page Annenberg Political Fact
Check website article "Does Barack O(:>ama have Kenyan citizenship?", hereto
attached as exhibit G, 3 pages. On 1 of this document near the bottom is the
answer to that Title question, which is i "No. He held both U.S. and Kenyan
atizenship as a child, but lost his Ken1n citizenship automatically on .his 21st
birthday." Any reasonable mind would properly draw the conclusion from review of

that answer, that Defendant was indefd a dual national citizen at birth, and most
likely, not more likely, a dual nationallcitizen at birth, and not a "natural born
citizen" as required on the ARS 16-24* on file with the Arizona Secretary of State's
I
office. I
6. Plaintiff, by tefetence to doctet #25, page 10, line 25 through page 12,
line 8, reasserts how people know what a natural born citizen is, it is not a dual
national citizen as Defendant B.O. stated he is and allowed to be stated on his
behalf and allowed political groups to for the advancement of that self
admission time and again. Plaintiff aSI'rts that the falsely sworn to statement of
material fact on his filed ARS 16-242 long with Defendant's officially expressed
opinion in SR 511 (exhibit E), and De I ndant's self admitted dual nationality, are at
irreconcilable opposition, therefore soJeone is not telling the truth. As for Plaintiff's
self, Plaintiff sides with the founders or this great republic we call the United States
of America.
7. There has been no rebuke ofithese facts as to date from either Defendant
I
B.O. or counsel, only the repeated of his place of birth and never any
attempts and successes to dismiss on standing and never on Merit, odd after

some 30+ cases filed, to say the least. I

PLAINTIFF SEEKS DEFAUL11 JUDGMENT AGAINST A PRIVATE
I
PERSON ACTINGljJNDER COLOR OF LAW
Whereas, Plaintiff has provide1 this Honorable Court with an Arizona
Secretary of State, certified, legal copyl of the document which bears the alleged
!
sworn false statement of material and that document specifies the exact
I
moment in time of the alleged (doc. #4, paragraph 35) violation of Arizona law and
abridgment of Plaintiff's rights to be 3:01pm on December 13, 2007. It is well
I
established and indisputable, that at tliat moment in time, the Defendant in this
case was a United States Senator, he p}eformed the act of sworn affirmation that he
met all of the tequitements contained rthin the ARS 16-242, required by the State

statutes, for the placement of his namf onto the Arizona 2008 election ballots.
That action, is in no way required by, nor limited to, United States officers,
I
agencies, companies, et cetera directly Inor indirectly in an official capacity nor
I
individual capacity duty on behalf of tliIe United States. That action is, however, as
counsel for Defendant John S. positioned identically so, in their alleged
fraud, has concurred, a solely "private person" action. That action is however, in this
case, taken and executed under autho*ity derived from the Arizona statutes of 'fitle
16 (ARS) and as held by the Supreme tourt (by reference to page 2, lines 11-22 of
I
this reply) are actions taken under the Icolor of law as prescribed by 42 USC @ 1983,
1985. That action, giving rise to a charge in employment classification at a future
date, illegally, does not negate the action nor change the factual
I
circumstances of that action, nor the niature of this instant case.
I
DOES DEFENDANT B.O. MEAN EXACTLY WHAT HE SAYS?
I
I
I
Defendant B.O., January 11, 2009; "Obviously we're going to be looking at
I
past practices and I don't believe that tnybody is above the law." Also "That doesn't
mean that if somebody has blatantly btoken the law, that doesn't mean they are
I
above the law." Plaintiff asks what dods Defendant mean?
Plaintiff inserts by reference docket #4, paragraph 56 through 64.
THE LEGAL CONUNDRfw OF "STANDING" AND
THE PERIfECT CRIME
I
I
,
It is apparent that if anyone, alone or by conspiracy, can manage to
perpetrate a fraud upon everyone, the4 the perpetrator{s) is {are) legally insulated
from prosecution for that fraud in a citil action by "standing", by anyone of the
I
victims; everyone that is victim of thatlfraud is harmed generally and their grievance
I
is generally available to everyone (Ot gtnerally unavailable by the doctrine of
standing); because none of the victims Fan ever obtain "standing" due to a lack of

individualized and or particularized injUry caused by that fraud; if that fraud
violated the victims rights, then the dqctrine of standing can be used to violate the
!
victims rights completely.

I
I
I
I
Plaintiff has filed a proper com)j>laint for the legal action initiated against two
private persons for the allegation of a fraud perpetrated, which Plaintiff alleges is
I
the causal action of the resultant unla-{vful abridgment and deprivation of his
Constitutional and federally protectedIrights by two private persons acting under the
color of Arizona State statutes at Titl116 of the ARS.. Plaintiff has properly served
the court issued summons and all documents to the Defendants named in
this action in accordance with the rules of procedure and in a timely
fashion for each. Plaintiff has filed with the Clerk of this Honorable Court the
required proof of service and of service, respectively for same, as is
I
reflected in the Court record for this ahion.
Plaintiff asserts that pursuant +FRCiv.P Rule 8(e) "Pleadings must be
construed so as to do justice.", and Plartiff further asserts that "to do justice" in this
instant case there can be no other wayI to construe this action than in the manor
!
consistent with that intended filing of fhe complaint which is described in the
foregoing.
Plaintiff asserts that opposing counsels' citation of a statement, taken out of
!
context, that is in fact, a statement ofl a hypothetical progressional fact, based on a
!
speculated finding, residing in the body of a responsive memorandum, hardly has the
effect of changing the requested reliefj1in this action nor the true nature of Plaintiff's
proper pleading filed for action agains two private person Defendants acting under
the color of law, authorized by Arizon statutes.
Plaintiff asserts that the filing, by a prohibited counsel, for the
Defendant B.O. must not have any action in this matter before this
Honorable Court and must be from the record with the stipulation that

paragraph 31) presented in this reply attached exhibits, Plaintiff asserts, meets
i
or exceeds the civil action bar of certafty for a finding of guilty on that allegation,
and further, that finding provides for 1he impetuous finding of guilty for the
remaining allegations in the Plaintiff's lamended complaint.

Barack Obama "Dreams From My Father"
Interview reco1ed 8J9I1995
I
Baraek Obema_borA.aKe..,_,....... ........1n1..J!but his par-
ents divorced when he was just two years old.1 Obama has said his father was little more
than a myth to him, at the time of the elder Obama's death in 1982. Just before he went
off to lawschool, Obama traveled to Kenya to Ileam more about his father, and to try and
put perspective on his mixed-race heritage. result was his book "Dreams From My
Father," first published in 1995. That's when Ere on Books talked with him:
EYE ON BOOKS: Why did you write this bookr
BARACK OBAMA: My father is a blaekAfri::an. a blackAfl'ican. My mather isawhileAl'nelt-
can. He came to the States to study, right after independence of Kenya, and was part of that
first wave of Africans to travel to the west in of knowledge to bring back to post-indepen-
denceAfrica. My mother came from small towns Kansas (my grandfather on my mother's side
was a traveling salesman for a long time). And so!they came from very different backgrounds.
They came together during the civil rights - although they weren't active, I think they
were swept up in the spirit of integrationist Americit and the dream of Dr. King, and the optimism
and the idealism of the Kennedys - and ended separating shortly thereafter. So the book is
really me trying to understand what their lives about, and thereby understand what my life
is about. !
I
EOB: This is not the kind of book you set out to write, though?
,No. I originally got the idea of writing a bqok while I was at Harvard Law School, where
I served as president of the Law Review. In to a number of the debates going back and
forth about affirmative action and voting rights all the controversies surrounding race issues
in the country, I thought that I might be able to ins,rt myself into the debate and hopefully clarify
I
What I realized, though, was !hat the starling point for any insights I might have really had 10 do
with the story of my own family, and coming to terry,s with that multi-cultural heritage. teo liefirst
book, at least, that I needed to write was a book that came to terms with that divided heritage.

EOB: Is it then an oversimplification to say you had to get your own house in order, in
your mind, before you could work on the
,
Obama: Well, I certainly think that you have to where you've been if you want to know
where you're going. For someone who comes out a family and a background that's both black
and white, that's an especially important process one has to go through.
I
We live in a land of strangers. Blacks and whitesI don't know each other, they don't know their
stories very well. Within my own family, even in the best-meaning family, there's a tremendous
scope for misunderstanding, for suspicion, for Until I understood what those fears were,
what those hopes were, and what those dreams I think I was destined to - potentially, at
least - repeat some of the mistakes that my and grandparents had made.
I
EOB: All of that, thirty years after Dr. King and the civil rights movement This seems al-
most incredible to me, at times, to think that iri thirty years, this is all the progress we've
been able to make?
Obama: Well, you know, it is frustrating, I think. i I talk a lot in the book about my attempts to
renew the dream that both of my parents had. I Worked as a community organizer in Chicago,
[and] was very active in low-income working on issues of crime and education
and employment, and seeing that in some ways portions of the African-American com-
munity are doing as bad, if not worse, and that my fate remained tied up with their
fates. That my individual salvation is not going to I come about without a collective salvation for
the country.
Unfortunately, I think that recognition requires tha. we make sacrifices, and this country has not
always been willing to make the sacrifices to bring about a new day and a new age.
I
EOB: Would this book properly be called an aitobiOgraPhY, though?
Obama: Well, you know, I have not been comfortable with calling it an autobiogra-
phy. I get the image, when I talk about autobiographies, of famous generals writing about their
war exploits, or movie stars talking about their interests. Obviously, at the age of thirty-
three, when I finished writing it - I just turned thirtY-four - my experiences are only part of my
life, and I haven't achieved any closure yet, hopefi,ally. What I would describe it as is more of a
family history. I think it's an oral history, a of a family trying to understand itself, and

Barack's mother, Ann Dunham, grew up in smalI-town Kansas. Her

It was there, at the University of Hawaii, where Baraek's parents met. His mother was a there, and
his father had won a scholarship that allowed him to leave Kenya and pursue his dreams In America.
Barack's father eventually returned to Kenya, and Baraek grew up with his mother in and for a few
years in Indonesia. Later, he moved to New York, where he graduated from Columbia university in 1983.
THE COLLEGE YEARS
Remembering the values of empathy and service that his mother taught him, Sarack put school and
corporate life on hotd aftercotlege and moved to Chicago in 1985, where he became a co,mmunily
organizer with a church-based group seeking to improve living conditions in poor neighbo\noods plagued
with crime and high unemployment. I

The group had some success, but Berack had corne to realize that in order to truly imprOrthe lives of
people in that community and other communities, it would take not just a change at the I I level, but a
change in our laws and in our politics.
He went on to eam his law degree from Harvard in 1991, where he became the first Afri9n-American
president of the Harvard Law Review. Soon after, he returned to Chicago to practice as aIcivil rights lawyer
and teach constitutional law. Finally, his advocacy work led him to run for the illinois state Senate, where
he served for eight years. In 2004, he became the third African American since Reconstruction to be
elected to the U.S. Senate.

the disability pay they were promised, while wor1<ing to prepare the VA for the return of thousands of

error in an Aug. 15, 200 I, column. Neither the correction nor the apology
has prevented the from circulating across the Internet as part of
the latest set of rumors that Obama is ineligible to run for
president. .
There was a grain of truth to what the Rocky Mountain News reported,
though understanding requires a brief history lesson.
When Barack Obama Jr.1 was born on Aug. 4,1961, in Honolulu, Kenya
was a British colony, still Ipart of the United Kingdom's dwindling empire.
As a Kenyan native, Obama Sr. was a British subject whose
citizenship status was gqvemed by The British Nationality Act of 1948.
That same act governedIthe status of Obama Sr.'s children:
British Nationality of 1948 (part n, Section 5): Subject to the
provisions ofthis section, a person born after the commencement of
this Act shall be a citi:ten ofthe United Kingdom and Colonies by
descent ifhis father is la citizen ofthe United Kingdom and Colonies
at the time ofthe b4
In other words, at the of his birth, Barack Obama Jr. was both a U.S.
citizen (by virtue of being born in Hawaii) and a citizen of the United
Kingdom and Colonies the UKC) by virtue of being born to a father
who was a citizen of the
Obama's British citizenstlip was short-lived. On Dec. 12, 1963, Kenya
formally gained its from the United Kingdom. Chapter VI,
Section 87 of the Kenyary Constitution specifies that:
1. Every person who,1 having been born in Kenya, is on 11th
December, 1963 a ci''zen ofthe United Kingdom and Colonies or a
British protected pe on shall become a citizen of Kenya on 12th
December, 1963...

2. Every person who,l.having been born outside Kenya, is on 11th
December, 1963 a cit(izen ofthe United Kingdom and Colonies or a
British protected person shall, if his father becomes, or would but for
his death have a citizen of Kenya by virtue ofsubsection
(1), become acitizenlofKenya on 12th December, 1963.
,
As a citizen of the UKC was born in Kenya, Obama's father
automatically received Klnyan citizenship via subsection (1). So given
that Obama qualified for itizen of the UKC status at birth and given that
Obama's father became Kenyan citizen via subsection (1), it follows
that Obama did in fact h ve Kenyan citizenship after 1963. So The Rocky
Mountain News was at least partially correct.
I
But the paper failed to note that the Kenyan Constitution prohibits dual
citizenship for adults. recognizes dual citizenship for children, but
Kenya's Constitution that at age 21, Kenyan citizens who
possesses citizenship in than one country automatically lose their
Kenyan citizenship unless they formally renounce any non-Kenyan
citizenship and swear an loath of allegiance to Kenya.
Since Sen. Obama has Tither renounced his U.S. citizenship nor sworn
an oath of allegiance to enya, his Kenyan citizenship automatically
expired on Aug. 4,1982.
