Where's the Birth Certificate?

Comment

Incredibly, we are just nine weeks away from inaugurating the next president of the United States, and millions of Americans still have citizenship eligibility questions that have never been addressed by Barack Obama and his entourage.

All that Barack Obama would have to do to put this issue to rest is release his complete birth certificate, revealing where he was born and who were his parents. It seems like a simple thing.

Personally, I doubt the Democratic Party would be so stupid as to run a disqualified candidate for president of the United States. I doubt Hillary Clinton would have accepted defeat at the hands of a candidate ineligible for the job.

So, it would seem Obama is simply thumbing his nose at the Constitution and the concerns of millions of American people. After all, he has made it clear the Constitution doesn't mean what it says anyway; it's all a matter of opinion.

Maybe his intransigence on this seemingly ridiculous matter is just his way of showing he will, as president, consider himself above the Constitution. I don't know any other way to interpret his behavior, do you?

Until last week, no one in the Obama camp would even comment on the controversy surrounding his complete birth certificate, which has never been released publicly. That changed after much hounding by World Net Daily staffers who managed to get one official Obama representative to proclaim — anonymously, I might add — that seven lawsuits filed by citizens trying to secure the birth certificate are "pure garbage."

Obama's record of noncooperation and secrecy has now resulted in conspiracy theories that will plague him throughout his administration, if he doesn't address them now with utter transparence. Do I expect him to do so? No, I don't.

He not only thinks those lawsuits are "garbage." Evidently, that's also what he thinks of the people who truly believe the Constitution means what it says and those who believe there ought to be some controlling legal authority determining Obama's eligibility for the highest office in the land before he is sworn in Jan.

20.

Count me among those who really want to see that birth certificate now. Imagine the level of secrecy we can expect from an Obama administration that guards his birth certificate with such tenacity.

I'm calling on Barack Obama today to release the entire birth certificate. And just so there is no mistake about what I am asking for, I want the part of the birth certificate that shows which hospital he was born in and the names of his parents. That is the only way to establish if he is truly a U.S. citizen. Further, I am asking as a journalist and pundit that if there is any government agency or government official anywhere on the planet that has inspected the birth certificate and can provide those details to the American people, now is the time to do it.

I'm also calling on all my colleagues, from coast to coast and around the world, not to let this matter drop. Apparently it is a point of real sensitivity with Obama people. Good. Let's rub it in. Let's demand he produce the birth certificate at every turn — at every press conference, at every appearance, on every talk show.

Could anything be more important than enforcing the requirements of our Constitution?

This is hardly a laughing matter. The longer this soap opera drags on, the more suspicions it will raise — the less credibility our electoral system will have, the more people will believe the whole political system is rigged.

Who does that benefit? I honestly can't imagine.

What possible motivation could Obama have for not producing this simple, innocuous document that every citizen must produce to get a passport, driver's license or Social Security card?

Are you curious? So am I. Where's the birth certificate, Sen. Obama?

Just file impeachment proceedings the day of his inauguration forcing him to respond under oath and at the least forcing the issue to the public's attention, that anyone can take over this country and the constitution is not a living document but, dead

I would love to see another aspect cleared up.
http://colony14.net/id41.html <---- excellent 'Obama Timeline'
If it is assumed that Obama is legally adopted by his Indonesian step-father, Lolo Soetoro, Obama becomes an Indonesian citizen, according to Indonesian law. Because Indonesia does not allow dual citizenship, Obama thus loses his U.S. citizenship when he becomes an Indonesian citizen, in or about 1966. At this point Obama also ceases to be a Kenyan citizen, according to Indonesian and Kenyan law. Ann Dunham would have been required to renounce her U.S. citizenship, under Indonesian law, for her marriage to Lolo Soetoro to be considered legal in Indonesia. If, after Obama returned to Hawaii, he applied for and was granted American citizenship, he would be a naturalized citizen (like California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger) and not a natural-born citizen, and would therefore be ineligible to serve as President of the U.S. It is possible that Obama did not bother to become a naturalized citizen of the United States, and remains an Indonesian citizen. Appropriate federal records would exist if Obama made application for naturalization.
*IF* he indeed was born in Hawaii, is this situation just being ignored because there is no father or a different father listed on the BC? He would still be eligible for POTUS but known as being a LIAR ...
http://colony14.net/id41.html - also brings up : The birth certificate provided by the Obama campaign lists the father's race as “African,” a term that would not have been used for the newborn's race in 1961; instead, a birth certificate would have listed the race as “negro” or “colored.” The use of the word “African” further suggests that the document provided by the Obama campaign was a newly-created fabrication.
*I never knew "African" was a 'race' ...

There are minor bits of information that some enterprising investigator should try to find out. As far as I am aware we have never learned which hospital in Hawaii Obama was born in. Also, it would be nice to know the identity of the attending physician. Surely it cannot be that difficult to find these things out, assuming, of course, one is willling to look (and assuming that there is actually something there to be found).

&#61607; CUSC.ORG is encouraging everyone to write to the Supreme Court judges to ask them to hear and investigate Obama's eligibility to be POTUS. It has a link that gives information and suggestions as to how to draft the letter and where to send it. Since there is so little time left, it would be helpful for any one concerned to also write a letter.

David H. Souter, Associate Justice
United States Supreme Court
1 First Street NE
Washington DC 20543


LEO C. DONOFRIO v. NINA MITCHELL WELLS, SECRETARY OF STATE OF THE STATE OF NEW JERSEY - US Supreme Court Docket # 08A407 - continues to be subjected to misconduct by the US Supreme Court Clerk's office, particularly by Mr. Danny Bickell, the Stay Clerk.
No. 08-570 Philip J. Berg, Petitioner v. Barack Obama, et al
October 31, 2008
United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit (08-4340)


Dear Honorable David H. Souter, Associate Justice,

You are facing one of the most unique and historical challenges to protect and uphold the Constitution of the United States. Not since the Civil War of 1861 has there been an issue of such vital importance to the future safety of United States of America.

"America is facing potentially the gravest constitutional crisis in her history. Barack Obama must either stand up in a public forum and prove, with conclusive documentary evidence, that he is “a natural born Citizen” of the United States who has not renounced his American citizenship..."
Dr. Edwin Vieira, Jr., Ph.D., J.D.

Though Berg is asking you to rule on “standing”, it is vital that the court rule in favor of Mr. Berg on “standing” so the true heart of the matter be settled once and for all. There is but one issue and only one issue to determine. Is or is not Barack Hussein Mohamed Sotoero Obama eligible to be president under the Constitution as it is written?

Right now the whole world is focusing upon you, The Supreme Court of the United States, who are the guardians of the our Beloved Constitution and the protectors of American rules of law that separate us from chaos and tyranny. The world is wondering if you will have the courage to do what is right. It fears you will crumble under the pressures of public opinion, hollow “racist” accusations, fear of race riots threats, invisible intimidators and deal makers, or accusations of failure to respect the will of the people since Obama was elected by the people. (Everyone knows only 25% of the people voted for Obama. He was elected by a minority.)

The American public has been witnessing distortion of justice in the courts for years and suspects it will soon witness one more travesty of justice. The public's silent fear is that Obama is not eligible to president but will be become president because The supreme court will fail to hold him accountable through a technicality like “standing”. Imagine a usurper who becomes the president of the United States is permitted to remain so because no one in America has “standing” to make the man accountable in the courts of law. It this becomes so, then what good is Article II in the Constitution?

It is believed the Supreme court will conspire with those who have vested interests in Obama to manipulate or convolute the articles of the Constitution in such a way it will legitimize a usurper to the Presidency. The whole world knows beyond a shadow of a doubt Obama is not a “natural born citizen.” If Obama slips through the net of these lawsuits and takes the oath of Presidency, the whole world will know the Constitution of the United States and its holy guardians have failed the American people. Our Constitutional Guardians will have rendered our precious constitution impotent and opened the gates to the most pernicious form of tyranny-- that which disguises itself as a benefactor to its victims. The Presidency of the United States is merely a commodity. The hour of your choice is crisis of our history.

This is not about Obama. This is about the hope and future of America. This case asks far more profound questions than whether or not Obama is a citizen. This is the crisis of Constitutional history. Though issues are different, the significance is equal in challenge to Abraham Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation. When Lincoln was preparing America for the idea slavery would be abolished in all states, seven states seceded from the union. The civil war was to save the union. I often think about how painful that must have been for Mr. Lincoln. I am in awe at his courage and vision. The Emancipation Proclamation changed history for the better. Obama's case is about upholding, protecting, defending and saving the integrity of the Constitution. This is the case that will change America as we have known once, for all, and forever. This time, if the Supreme court fails to act on the side of the Constitution, it will be a change for the worse.

Time is of the essence.

May you do right for America.

Sincerely,

Cc: to all interested people

I AGREE WITH ALL OF YOU GOOD PEOPLE TRYING TO UPHOLD THE LETTER OF THE CONSTITUTION , BUT UNFORTUNATELY THE WASHINGTON ELITES HAVE ALREADY VIOLATED THE CONSTITUTION. DO YOU BELIEVE THAT THEY OR THE "BIG-MEDIA" WOULD LET THEIR LITTLE "MAN-CHILD" BE DENIED THE PRESIDENCY , JUST BECAUSE OF A REGULATION IN THE CONSTITUTION???

AS COWARDS THAT THEY ARE THEY WOULD WORRY OF RACE RIOTS , MAYBE CIVIL WAR , SO THEY WILL LET IT PASS AND ATTACK AS "RADICALS" OR "RACISTS" ANYONE WHO WOULD BRING IT UP .

THEY MAY EVEN "FABRICATE" A BIRTH CERTIFICATE THEMSELVES ,THEY ARE AGENCIES OUT THERE IN THE WORLD WITH THE CAPABILITY OF FORGING DOCUMENTS .

FOR A PRICE OF COURSE .
