Here Barack Hussein Obama is seen seated with his paternal grandmother…
This pictue was taken on his trip to Kenya in 1981; and there is even one recordering where even his grandmother calls him “A son of Africa,” which means that he was native born in Africa!
I’ve been having an ongoing correspondence with someone who responded to a blog I did on September 26th, regarding a WorldNetDaily article (see video below) on Obama’s eligibility status, and the release of recent information/documents that indicate a possible cover up.
I’m going to attempt to sort through this controversy over Obama’s eligibility and attempt to make some sense out of it; as this person who wrote me, who is obviously a loyal Obama supporter, has been telling me that this whole eligibility issue is nothing more than a contrived “myth” (which is the word that was used):
“It is a myth that he (Obama) has blocked access to early records. There has not been a lawsuit against Obama either for his birth certificate or for records. The lawsuits you are referring to were mainly attempts to stop the election or stop the Congress from certifying the election (which it did, unanimously) or stop the Inauguration. There was never a lawsuit that simply asked Obama to deliver a birth certificate or records to a court. NEVER.”
Apparently this person believes that this whole controversy has been made up; and is also trying to make the point that there have been no lawsuits, and that Obama has not blocked access to his records.
Well, according to Wikipedia going back as far as mid-December of 2008, even back then there were at least 17 lawsuits on record that had been filed challenging Obama’s eligibility, requesting that he be compelled to release additional documentation relating to his citizenship.
The states where these lawsuits were filed include: North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Hawaii, Connecticut, New Jersey, Texas and Washington.
Then there is the pending case of Lt. Col. Terry Lakin, a medical doctor in the U.S. Army (who is in his 18th year of service). He is being court marshaled for refusing to accept orders to return to Afghanistan, based on this whole ineligibility issue of the Commander in Chief; and the judge in that case has just issued the following ruling, which contains an obvious and embarrassing message to Congress:
This Obama Eligibility issue has been debated and discussed for quite some time now, and I would like to just make the point that at least in my opinion, it is just a matter of common sense that if I were being challenged as to my place of birth, and whether or not I were a United State’s citizen, I would just pay the $10 to have my “long form” official birth certificate released. What’s the big deal?
After all, you and I and every other American citizen for that matter, has had to do this any number of times: to get a passport, to register and get a Social Security card, and for any other number of other reasons.
And by the way, on the subject of Social Security Number, how is it that as per a story in WorldNetDaily, posted June 10th, 2010, Obama’s Social Security Number is registered in the State of Connecticut?
The obvious question here that should be asked by any normal thinking person, is if Obama was born in the U.S. then why all this controversy and why all the expense in attorney fees (which is upwards of a million dollars so far) over something that is so easy to prove… unless he doesn’t have one?
Alan Keyes in the following video gives an excellent overview of this entire controversy, and makes a number of valid points that at the very least should raise enough reasonable doubt to warrant a Congressional investigation, not only to investigate this President, but also we need to investigate those members of Congress, such as Nancy Pelosi, who were involved with the alleged cover-up, and did not properly vet this president prior to the election.
There are two documents that have surfaced on the internet as Obama’s “Official Birth Certificate,” one is a facsimile copy of something called a “Certification of Live Birth,” that has been published over the internet, and was supposedly issued by the State of Hawaii.
As a comparison, look at this copy of a “Long Form” Birth Certificate that was issued in Hawaii in 1963; and even take a look at your own Birth Certificate, and see the obvious differences that are missing from this Obama facsimile:
If you will note, none of the following information is included on the Obama facsimile:
- There is NO hospital named
- Residence information of the mother is missing
- There is NO age given for either the father or the mother
- There is NO birthplace given for either the father or the mother
- There is NO occupation listed for either the father or mother
- There is NO parent DOB or age of parent or parent place of birth.
- Note also the Father’s race would not be “African”, as this is his country of origin, not his race; and besides in the early 60’s, before the term “Black” came into vogue as acceptable, the term that was used on any official document was “Negro.”
- There is NO attending physician name listed
- There is NO attending physician signature or license number
- Was this a single birth or multiple birth?
- There is NO parent signature
- There is NO Registrars name or signature.
There is also another matter of no small importance that we need to examine, regarding Obama’s facsimile copy of “Certification of Live Birth,” that is being put forth as his only proof of citizenship; and that is this document is alleged to have been tampered with and photo-shopped.
This man you are about to hear on the video interview is a expert on this subject; his testimony was sought to be used in one of the trails; and the reason why his face is disguised is because there have been threats on his life:
Now there is also a Kenyan birth certificate that has surfaced; and according to a WorldNetDaily article, that posted back in August of 2009, a California attorney Orly Taitz, who has filed a number of lawsuits demanding proof of Barack Obama’s eligibility to serve as president, has released a copy of what purports to be a Kenyan certification of birth and he filed a motion in U.S. District Court for its authentication.
The document lists Obama’s parents as Barack Hussein Obama and Stanley Ann Obama, formerly Stanley Ann Dunham, the birth date as Aug. 4, 1961, and the hospital of birth as Coast General Hospital in Mombasa, Kenya.
No doctor is listed, but the alleged certificate bears the signature of the deputy registrar of Coast Province, Joshua Simon Oduya. It was allegedly issued as a certified copy of the original in February 1964. WND was able to obtain other birth certificates from Kenya for purposes of comparison, and the form of the documents appear to be identical.
There was also found a counterfeit document purporting to be Obama’s Kenyan birth certificate that made its rounds over the Internet; but was quickly determined to be fraudulent. The above document released by Taitz bears to have none of the obvious traits of a hoax.
Unlike the Certification of Life Birth facsimile that Obama is using as his official birth certificate, at least on this Kenyan certificate we have the name of the register, the name of the hospital, and you can clearly see it has a raised stamp; none of which is on the Facsimile copy of Obama’s Certification of Live Birth.
At least with the name of the Deputy Registrar, and with dates and such, it should be easy enough to verify whether this document is authentic or not, if someone in our government would only take the time to look; and certainly as I just pointed out, there is more information to authenticate on this Kenyan birth certificate than there is on the Obama facsimile.
Also you will note that what Obama has published over the internet as his official birth certificate is what is called a “Certification of Live Birth,” and it is NOT a “Certificate of Live Birth,” and apparently there is a difference; howbeit as we check into this subject it gets rather confusing, as there seems to be conflicting reports from within the various departments of Hawaii on this subject.
Obama’s ‘birth certificate’ not acceptable in Hawaii?
The Hawaiian certification of live birth Barack Obama posted on his campaign website and distributed to select news organizations as proof he was a “natural born citizen” would not be accepted as a “birth certificate” even for some Hawaiian state government eligibility issues, according to a World Net Daily posted article on June 9, 2009. (http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=100451)
The investigation follows a Honolulu Star Bulletin column Saturday, which quotes a state Department of Health spokeswoman as saying the state’s current certification of live birth is recognized “as an official birth certificate meeting all federal and other requirements.”
The website of the Department of Hawaiian Home Lands, however, states clearly the certification of live birth touted by the Obama campaign, White House press secretary Robert Gibbs and a host of other Obama defenders is not acceptable as a form of identification to qualify under this program.
As WND has reported, certifications of live birth were widely issued to Hawaiians born in foreign countries in 1961, the year Obama was born.
The Star Bulletin column goes on to report: “The issue of what constitutes an official Hawaii birth certificate received national attention during last year’s presidential campaign. Those who doubted Barack Obama’s American citizenship called the copy of the Hawaii birth document posted on his campaign website a fake.”
However, Obama’s “citizenship” was never the question raised during the campaign or after the election.
The issue raised by WND has consistently been that Obama failed to prove he was actually born in Hawaii and thus constitutionally qualified to become president as a “natural born citizen” – which requires that the birth took place in the United States.
The qualifications for the Hawaiian Home Lands program require a certified copy of a standard birth certificate – also known as the “long-form certificate” filled out in the hospital and including details such as the name of the hospital and the attending physician.
“In order to process your application, DHHL utilizes information that is found only on the original Certificate of Live Birth, which is either black or green,” the qualifications state. “This is a more complete record of your birth than the Certification of Live Birth (a computer-generated printout). Submitting the original Certificate of Live Birth will save you time and money since the computer-generated Certification requires additional verification by DHHL.”
According to Hawaii’s Department of Health spokeswoman Janice Okubo, the state only issues “certifications” of live births since 2001 when the health department went paperless. It is only available in electronic form, she said.
“At that time, all information for births from 1908 (on) was put into electronic files for consistent reporting,” she is quoted as telling the Star Bulletin. “The electronic record of the birth is what (the Health Department) now keeps on file in order to provide same-day certified copies at our help window for most requests,” Okubo said.
She did not explain how those needing a standard long-form birth certificate to qualify for programs such as those offered by the Department of Hawaiian Home Lands or to establish proof of eligibility to be president could be fulfilled.
She said the U.S. Supreme Court has recognized the state’s current certification of live birth “as an official birth certificate meeting all federal and other requirements.”
She did not, however, cite any specific rulings, and the Supreme Court has not taken up the issue of whether the certification of live birth would qualify a presidential candidate as eligible under the “natural born citizen” clause.
The truth is if you or I ever tried to use the Obama styled facsimile, as is posted on the internet, as our official Birth Certificate in order to do whatever; say to get a passport, we wouldn’t even get to first base; as they make it very clear what is required as proof of citizenship:
“A certified birth certificate has a registrar’s raised, embossed, impressed or multicolored seal, registrar’s signature, and the date the certificate was filed with the registrar’s office, which must be within 1 year of your birth.
Please note, some short (abstract) versions of birth certificates may not be acceptable for passport purposes.“
Not only that, but with this Obama Facsimile, he couldn’t even get a job as a cook in the White House, as it fails to meet even the minimum background secerity requirements; and yet how did he get elected to the White House?
As was pointed out by Alan Keyes, and also in the above article from WND, it is a known fact that “Certification of Live Birth” documentation, such as the one Obama is using, has in the past been given to people in Hawaii who were in fact born outside of the United States; and that is because according to the statue pertaining to how to apply, there is nothing that necessitates that an individual be American born; but only that he can prove himself to be a resident of the State of Hawaii.
Please pay close attention to the following Hawaiian legal statue, as to what the requirements are, and how one goes about obtaining a “Certification of Live Birth:”
“[§338-17.8] Certificates for children born out of State.
(a) Upon application of an adult or the legal parents of a minor child, the director of health shall issue a birth certificate for such adult or minor, provided that proof has been submitted to the director of health that the legal parents of such individual while living without the Territory or State of Hawaii had declared the Territory or State of Hawaii as their legal residence for at least one year immediately preceding the birth or adoption of such child.
(b) Proof of legal residency shall be submitted to the director of health in any manner that the director shall deem appropriate. The director of health may also adopt any rules pursuant to chapter 91 that he or she may deem necessary or proper to prevent fraudulent applications for birth certificates and to require any further information or proof of events necessary for completion of a birth certificate.
(c) The fee for each application for registration shall be established by rule adopted pursuant to chapter 91. [L 1982, c 182, §1]“
As you can see, according to the above statue any adult can apply for this document, as long as they can walk into the Hawaii version of the Department of Records and provide proof that they are a legal resident of Hawaii.
For a child, however, according to the wording of this statue, they could have been born in Hawaii, Kenya, or a back-alley in Budapest. There is no mention of any required verification when it comes to children, whose parent or guardian are applying for this certification, that they must be born inside the U.S.
This person also made a statement that:
“In addition, we have the words of Obama’s Kenyan grandmother, who by the way NEVER said that Obama was born in Kenya.”
That is not true.
Listen for yourself to this interview that was recorded and was also to be used as evidence in a court of law, where Obama’s paternal grandmother says in no uncertain terms, when asked by the interviewer (and mind you this happened right after the election, in all the excitement, before this whole eligibility thing became a problem) that she was present at his birth:
Also listen to the Kenyan Ambassador, in an interview on The Mike in the Morning Show, over WRIF radio, in Detroit (which was recorded in November of 2008) right after the elections, where again in all the excitement, this Ambassadore admits that Obama was in fact born in Kenya:
This Ambassador to the United States, Peter Ogego, even admitted that it is a well known fact that Barack Obama was born in Kenya, and that plans are underway to build a memorial at the site of his birth.
Again this person wrote in their comments:
“Where do you get this vast amount of wrong information from? Obama’s first executive order made it HARDER for a president or a former president to seal records. Also, it applies ONLY to the federal presidential records, not to state birth certificate records (or in fact to any state records).”
My response is: in most every article or video that I use I also give a link so you can see where the document or video comes from.
You incorrectly state that Obama’s first executive order was to make it HARDER for a president or former president to seal his records.
Well that is just not true:
Read the Executive Order for yourself.
As you can read, in EXECUTIVE ORDER 13489, in Section 3; subsection D, it shows that the first order of business Obama took care of on day one of his Presidency was to sign off on an Executive Order that states that only the records he chooses to be made public will be released?
THE WHITE HOUSE
I thought Obama promised more openness and transparantency in government?
There are seven broken promises that Obama made in this speech, that he never once has fulfilled:
7 Broken Promises:
1. Make Government Open and Transparent
2. Make it “Impossible” for Congressmen to slip in Pork Barrel Projects
3. Meetings where laws are written will be more open to the public (republicans shut out)
4. No more secrecy
5. Public will have 5 days to look at a Bill
6. You’ll know what’s in it (Republican Senators didnt know)
7. We will put every pork barrel project online
You know none of this stuff is rocket science, but it’s just plain old common sense, as far as I can tell.
I mean you don’t have to be an attorney or any kind of genius to see the obvious discrepancies in this facsimile “Certification of Live Birth,” document that Obama is putting off as his official birth certificate.
I mean the differences are glaring; and it appears that most of America has taken stupid pills and cannot not see the obvious.
I don’t know, go figure. All I can do is present the evidence, and let you decide.
In the mean time, while we have an imposter at the helm of our country, who is not qualified, in my opinion; and apparently as you can see in the video (below), before he decided to run for office, neither did he consider himself to be qualified:
But nevertheless, this is the guy who is running our nation today, right into the ground; into a complete financial meltdown and failure; he is also the guy who is our commander in chief… may God help us!
Just pray, folks, that’s really and truly what we need more than anything right now, is for Christians in America to pray as per 2 Chronicles 7:14; that God would intervene and give us a miracle, to save our country, and restore our Constitutional Republic.
