An Open Letter to the M&M Twins
Michelle Malkin and Michael Medved
Dear M & M,
At first we were stunned that you called us lunatics, crazy, uninformed, but I must say this has been a blessing in disguise. If you so-called Conservatives did support us we would have been following your lead down a dead-end ally, but without you we were forced to rely on our own intelligence and determination. This is what separates us from you. We are seeking the truth and wisdom that our founding fathers left us, while you two are serving an unknown agenda.
You both have said that the 14th Amendment makes one a natural born citizen, Michelle likes this fallacy as this is her only argument for calling herself a natural born citizen, but we are not so sure about your motives Michael. We disagree with you as clear pure water disagrees with old engine oil. The 14th Amendment does not make one a natural born citizen. Your quips are neither supported by the Founding Fathers, the Framers of the 14th Amendment or the ruling from the Wong Kim Ark case. We are not going to dive into a long discussion on history; rather we want you to explain one very simple thing to us.
Betty is a natural born American,
as our founding Fathers defined the term. She married in the
In 1984 her husband told her

While trying to regain custody of her daughter, which according to you is a “natural born American,” the Iranian courts used the internationally accepted principle of jus sanguinis and declared that Mahtob was an Iranian citizen and sole custody was given to the father.
The background to this is
found in the book “not
without my Daughter” and in the film

not identify for the safety of the mothers and children. However what we can
identify is the assistance the
So please explain to us, if
you can, how a “natural born American” citizen can be claimed to be
a citizen of
If you refuse to explain this then this will be the American Patriots view of you,
We at the Birthers in no way impugn the American citizenship of Mahtob, to us she is an American citizen. We are not attempting to hijack Betty’s ordeal, nor are we saying she supports us. The Birthers unequivocal position is that 14th Amendment citizens are American citizens deserving the same protection of our laws as any other citizen naturalized or natural born. However, this is a fact of history. We are aware that the diplomatic efforts afforded a natural born citizen can be different to those efforts afforded to a naturalized or 14th amendment born citizen, if a foreign government was to detain and claim a natural born citizen as THEIR citizen, then instead of giving the mother a list of local attorneys, perhaps the State Department would be giving the foreign minister of that country a list of ‘casus belli.’ We state that this could never happen to an American natural born citizen as understood since the inception of our Nation, because through the unified principles of jus soli (born in the USA) and jus sanguinis (born of two American citizen parents) this would never be recognized or be protected by international laws.
This story was given to us by
another American-Iranian girl that happens to have the same name Mahtob in her name. BriteStarAngie,
who joined the Birthers knowing full well that because of her Iranian father
she is not a natural born citizen and feels no shame or regrets in taking this
stand with us. BriteStar pointed out to us that her
father unlike Obama’s father was a permanent resident of the
We are waiting for your
response to our question Michelle and Michael, “how a “natural born
American” citizen can be claimed to be a citizen of
