Obama Changed U.S. Citizenship Oath Specifically to Accommodate Sharia and Islamic Law

Sunday, June 26, 2016 6:40
% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

(Before It's News)


Back in December, reported that Obama changed the U.S. Citizenship Oath specifically to accommodate Sharia and Islamic Law, and as one might expect, all the usual alleged “fact checker” sites ran to Obama’s aid reporting that such a claim was “Mostly False.” 

Some of the aforementioned alleged “fact checker” sites (I won’t name names here, but you can figure it out) don’t like to be called out on the carpet for having a leftist tilt to their “fact checking,” so I’ll ask the reader, what exactly does “Mostly False” mean? If I say the sky is purple, is that True, False, or “Mostly False?” 

Merriam Webster online defined a “Fact” as:

- something that truly exists or happens : something that has actual existence

- a true piece of information

We’ll come back to the definition of “Fact” in a moment. As I mentioned, some of the alleged “fact checker” sites don’t like to be called out on the carpet for having a leftist tilt to their “fact checking,” and one in particular even had their “legal department” send me cease and desist letters to take down a previous post of mine calling them out on the carpet.

One would think the “legal department” of a “fact checker” site would have at least known the requirements to prove the elements of the claim they were making, or perhaps even the statute of limitations on the claim, but not so much. I’m sure it’s one heck of a “legal department” though. 

Despite the fact that this well informed “legal department” had no claim to speak of, I have enough headaches in my life. Since the post had been up for several years anyway, I just removed it to avoid the hassle. Sometimes a person needs to ask themselves, “Which do I want more? Do I want to right, or do I want to be happy?” It wasn’t worth my time or effort.

THIS POST WILL REVIEW: 1) What was reported by; 2) Review the changes made to the U.S. Citizenship Oath (by going directly to government websites); and 3) Explain the tortured reasoning “fact checker” sites use to justify their claim that what reported was “Mostly False.”


In December, reported:

Obama has pledged to fundamentally change the United States, and has found success over the years by ramming through laws that nobody has read, creating laws through regulation, and ignoring the Constitution through executive orders.

The United States Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) has announced another change, courtesy of the Obama Administration.

Those that are requesting to become US citizens, through naturalization, are required to take an Oath of Allegiance. Part of that oath reads,

“…That I will support and defend the Constitution and laws of the United States of America against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I will bear arms on behalf of the United States when required by the law; that I will perform noncombatant services in the Armed Forces of the United States when required by the law…”

The Obama Administration is changing that wording to exempt people from combat, and non-combat services in support of the United States if, a person can demonstrate opposition to the clause,

“…based on religious training and belief or deeply held moral or ethical code.”

Major beneficiaries to this clause are those that follow the Muslim teachings, more specifically Sharia Law, that allow for any practicing Muslim to lie about their allegiance to any organization or country as long as it furthers the Muslim faith. The teachings also restrict a practicing Muslim from bearing arms against another practicing Muslims.

As the United States is currently at war with radical Muslims throughout the world who use Sharia Law as an excuse to slaughter hundreds of thousands of innocent men, women, and children who do not share their fascist beliefs, it is somewhat peculiar that the Obama Administration would add a change to the Oath of Allegiance that specifically benefits Muslims who follow Shariah Law.

Before reviewing the changes made to the U.S. Citizenship Oath, please take a look at the video below, which has been viewed over 10,000,000 times, because it’s directly relevant to the conversation about the changes made to the  Citizenship Oath. Also, please note that the video is dated one month prior to the changes made to the Oath, which makes it painfully clear that everyone else on the planet (other than Obama and his merry band of liberal clapping seals) recognized the inherent danger being faced… 







Taking an Oath of Allegiance to the United States of America is not a new phenomena by any means. New naturalized citizens have been taking an oath since the country’s founding, but prior to the Naturalization Act of 1906 the oath did not have any specific text or verbiage, and the only guidance was that the applicant themselves. Post World War II, The Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952 set a number of guidelines for the Oath of Allegiance to the United States of America, but it still didn’t spell out the oath’s text. Some of the guidelines were as follows:

(1) To support the Constitution of the United States;

(2) To renounce and abjure absolutely and entirely all allegiance and fidelity to any foreign prince, potentate, state, or sovereignty of whom or which the applicant was before a subject or citizen;

(3) To support and defend the Constitution and the laws of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic;

(4) To bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and

(5) (A) to bear arms on behalf of the United States when required by the law, or

(B) To perform noncombatant service in the Armed Forces of the United States when required by the law, or

(C) To perform work of national importance under civilian direction when required by the law. 

Fast forward to today. Today, the text of the Oath of Allegiance can be found here in federal codesThis is where the Obama lackeys at “fact checker” sites like to play games and tilt to the left. The federal code states:

“I hereby declare, on oath, that I absolutely and entirely renounce and abjure all allegiance and fidelity to any foreign prince, potentate, state, or sovereignty, of whom or which I have heretofore been a subject or citizen; that I will support and defend the Constitution and laws of the United States of America against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I will bear arms on behalf of the United States when required by the law; that I will perform noncombatant service in the Armed Forces of the United States when required by the law; that I will perform work of national importance under civilian direction when required by the law; and that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; so help me God.”

Prior to the “Obama administration’s” changes (BTW: that is the difference to a “fact checker” site; more on that below), the federal code already stated:

“(b) Alteration of form of oath; affirmation in lieu of oath. In those cases in which a petitioner or applicant for naturalization is exempt from taking the oath prescribed in paragraph (a) of this section in its entirety, the inapplicable clauses shall be deleted and the oath shall be taken in such altered form. When a petitioner or applicant for naturalization, by reason of religious training and belief (or individual interpretation thereof), or for other reasons of good conscience, cannot take the oath prescribed in paragraph (a) of this section with the words “on oath” and “so help me God” included, the words “and solemnly affirm” shall be substituted for the words “on oath,” the words “so help me God” shall be deleted, and the oath shall be taken in such modified form. Any reference to “oath of allegiance” in this chapter is understood to mean equally “affirmation of allegiance” as described in this paragraph.”

So, since the federal code alrady said the alternate oath, President Obama has not “changed” the Oath of Allegiance for new Americans. Naturalized citizens were already able to omit portions of the oath based on “religious training and belief, or for other reasons of good conscience.” What DID happen under the “Obama administration” (which certainly cannot be attributed to President Obama himself as per “fact checking” websites), the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services clarified the requirements necessary to be eligible to take the modified oath. They did so by creating a three-part test that reads as follows:

In order for an applicant to qualify for a modification based on his or her “religious training and belief,” the applicant must satisfy a three-part test. An applicant must establish that:

(1) He or she is opposed to bearing arms in the armed forces or opposed to any type of Service in the armed forces;

(2) The objection is grounded in his or her religious principles, to include other belief systems similar to traditional religion or a deeply held moral or ethical code; and

(3) His or her beliefs are sincere, meaningful, and deeply held. 

The applicant is not eligible for a modified oath when he or she is opposed to a specific war. Religious training or belief does not include essentially political, sociological, or philosophical views. An applicant whose objection to war is based upon opinions or beliefs about public policy and the practicality or desirability of combat, or whose beliefs are not deeply held, does not qualify for the modification of the oath. 


If you pay attention to the news and what is happening in Europe, or you watched the video above, you know the danger posed to civilized Western society by radical Muslim extremists. Why then, would “President Obama’s administration” (not to be confused with President Obama as per the “fact checker” websites), make a point to “clarify” the already existing statute to make CERTAIN that anyone with total allegiance to Sharia Law could opt for the alternate oath? 

Virtually all U.S. laws or statutes are given some room for interpretation otherwise there would be no courts, right? Very little of “reality” (a place Obama doesn’t visit often) exists in pure black and white. Reality tends to be more grey, and in court both side makes the argument for why their side is correct, and either a judge or a jury decides. 

In the nuclear era, when radical groups like ISIS have made the claim they every intention of infiltrating groups coming to America, have plans to nuke a U.S. city, and have even released a list of target cities, why would “President Obama’s administration” (not to be confused with President Obama of course), deliberately handcuff national security efforts? They could have just as easily left the federal code already in existence alone.

Getting back to Merriam Webster’s definition of a “Fact…” 

Is Obama, or is it not a fact, that Obama is the Chief Law Enforcement officer of this country? Saying that Obama wasn’t responsible for the changes made to the oath that pave the way for radical extremists to gain citizenship is like saying Obama is not responsible for the Justice Department that will not indict Hillary Clinton, or that Obama wasn’t responsible for the IRS targeting conservatives.  

Give me a break. The buck stops with Obama. If you honestly think that someone as narcissistic at Barack Hussein Obama would allow major policy decisions or issues of national security to be made without his consent… then I suppose you’ll say it was the “Obama administration” that is responsible, just like the “fact checker” websites do. For the rest of us who live in “reality,” I submit to you that Obama’s intent of clarifying the statute was in keeping with all the links presented at the bottom confirming his treasonous activity. Furthermore, Obama’s comments just his week about how he doesn’t care what the Supreme Court says, he’s still not following immigration law only serve to further solidify that argument.

To quote Ted Nugent earlier this year, “President Obama and Hillary Clinton should be tried for treason & hung.” End of story.

  • Why do people think snopes is any more accurate or believable than anyone else. It’s just another political organization with a political agenda.

  • Muhammad was a pedophile, a narcissist, a mass murderer, an assassin, a looter, a lecher, a torturer, a terrorist, a cult-leader, a misogynist, and a rapist

    “… Muhammad was a great leader. He fought many offensive battles, tortured, looted and killed innocent people and raped their women, assassinated his critics, ordered mass murder, addicted to pedophilia and reduced thousands of others into slavery in the name of God. His conduct was ungodly. But he also successfully twisted the sense of morality of his followers, distorted their sense of Humanness and linked doing good and a service to God to all ungodly things …”

    “… If you think Islamic terrorism is a new phenomenon, think again. Islam owes its success to terrorism. The prophet of Islam boasted, “I have been made victorious with terror”. [Bukhari: 4.52. 220] Since the day Muhammad set foot in Medina, he started his campaign of terror. His followers have been doing the same ever since …” Definition, Symptoms & Cause of the Narcissistic Personality Disorder

    Islam is the biggest pedophilia ring & the biggest mad house on earth. The better a Muslim follow & imitating the model “par-excellence” & (page 61) Khayru-l-Khalq (the Best of Creation, Q33:21) the better is it for him!

  • the noahide laws, jewish laws, were quietly passed in the 90s by only 4 men, all zionists.

    this is treason, and one of the reasons we are so messed up these days.

    the muslim immigration and sharia issues are a direct result of ZIONIST POLICY.

    divide and conquer.
    create chaos to keep us busy fighting anyone BUT OUR TRUE ENEMIES…..


    macarthy was RIGHT. we are indeed under full communist regime, called neo-conservatism.

    neo-communism is what it is.

  • When idiots like Voice of Reason start pushing Muslim BS, you know they work for the Jews. Thanks for giving yourself away, morons. Now we know who you really work for.

    • The Last Great Stand is another Jewish shill organization.

  • Always a bad sign when someone opens an article with boring paragraphs about semantics. “Mostly False” is not that hard a concept to understand.

  • It’s time to get rid of political correctness. This video should be distributed to everyone around the world….where are the peaceful Muslims which supposedly are in the majority but are silent?

  • Among the 45 Declared Goals of the Communist Manifesto, which was read into the Congressional Record in 1963, it is important to realize that Number 13 on the list will now be met in terms of the 45 goals: it is “13.) Do away with all loyalty oaths.”

    To see what the other goals that have already been achieved and the ones they are still trying to put in place, type in “45 Declared Goals,” and steel yourself to some shocking and sad realities.

  • jdp…The teachings also restrict a practicing Muslim from bearing arms against another practicing Muslims. How can this be they are fighting each other for years blowing up people Apparently this teaching is not enforced. Its not like other faiths that if your different your tolerated and accepted. Jesus said to turn the other cheek in love not hostility due to differences.
