WE'RE ALL BIRTHERS NOW: The Long-Form Obama Birth Certificate DOES NOT EXIST
Reaganite Republican ^ | January 26, 2011 | Reaganite Republican

Posted on 01/26/2011 5:57:29 AM PST by Reaganite Republican

Hawai'i election official's sworn affadavit: 
"No Obama birth certificate exists"


ALL Americans who support our nation's Constitution and election laws must now ask: WHERE IS IT? As the Obama birth certificate controversy drags-on, any unbiased observer could tell you that events are strengthening the birthers' case by the day... not the other way around.

Oczam's razor theory dictates that if they can't find it... there must not be one. This would also provide the most viable explanation for why Obama has spent almost $2M fighting the claims in court. And to since it's a principle requirement for presidential eligibility... would someone please tell me WHY the burden of proof is on us

How'd this guy even get a passport without a long-form birth certificate, anyway...

"During the course of my employment," Adams swears in the affidavit (viewable in full as part 1 and part 2), "I became aware that many requests were being made to the City and County of Honolulu Elections Division, the Hawaii Office of Elections, and the Hawaii Department of Health from around the country to obtain a copy of then-Senator Barack Obama's long-form, hospital-generated birth certificate." 

As he inquired about the birth certificate, he says, his supervisors told him that the records were not on file at the Hawaii Department of Health. "Senior officers in the City and County of Honolulu Elections Division told me on multiple occasions that no Hawaii long-form, hospital-generated birth certificate existed for Senator Obama in the Hawaii Department of Health," Adams' affidavit reads, "and there was no record that any such document had ever been on file in the Hawaii Department of Health or any other branch or department of the Hawaii government." 

Tim Adams
Tim Adams, former senior elections clerk for Honolulu In a recorded telephone interview, Adams told WND that it was common knowledge among election officials where he worked that no long-form, hospital-generated birth certificate could be found at the Hawaii Department of Health. "My supervisor came and told me, 'Of course, there's no birth certificate. What? You stupid,'" Adams said. "She usually spoke well, but in saying this she reverted to a Hawaiian dialect. I really didn't know how to respond to that. She said it and just walked off. She was quite a powerful lady." 

Moreover, Adams was told that neither Queens Memorial Hospital nor Kapi'olani Medical Center had any records of Obama's birth at their medical facilities: "Senior officers in the City and County of Honolulu Elections Division further told me on multiple occasions that Hawaii State government officials had made inquires about Sen. Obama's birth records to officials at Queens Medical Center and Kapi'olani Medical Center in Honolulu and that neither hospital had any record of Senator Obama having been born there, even though Governor Abercrombie is now asserting and various Hawaii government officials continue to assert Barack Obama Jr. was born at Kapi'olani Medical Center on Aug. 4, 1961." 

"We called the two hospitals in Honolulu: Queens and Kapi'olani," Adams stressed. "Neither of them have any records that Barack Obama was born there."


The debate has been recently been amplified by Hawaii's weird hippy Governor Neil Abercrombie -a far-Left freak who was previously a member of the US House Progressive Caucus and a personal friend and college classmate of both of Obama's parents. Abercrombie  made an ill-advised claim during his 2010 gubernatorial campaign that he would soon put a rest to all this, stating he was on a  "mission" to "quell" the birthers- as the polemic has "implications for 2012 that we simply cannot have."

But there is no Obama birth certificate... there never was.  So now he's hiding behind Hawaii's state AG, who says there is a privacy law that prohibits Abercrombie from doing as he promised (unless Obama gave him permission, of course):

State Attorney General David Louie told the governor that privacy laws bar him from disclosing an individual’s birth documentation without the person’s consent, Abercrombie spokeswoman Donalyn Dela Cruz said Friday.

“There is nothing more that Gov. Abercrombie can do within the law to produce a document,” said Dela Cruz. 

“Unfortunately, there are conspirators who will continue to question the citizenship of our president.” 

Conspirators! That's rich- but condescension and slander coming from nervous Dems does little to re-assure thinking persons that this man is acutally qualified to be US President: on the contrary, this defensive, diversionary behavior speaks volumes. Clearly those propping up this Trojan Horse of a president have nothing left but mocking the inquisitors- but as Margaret Thatcher once said: "... if they attack one personally, it means they have not a single political argument left." And indeed they do not-


Delving a little farther back, Obama even admitted himself that he wasn't qualified for the presidency in the 2004 Keyes-Obama Senate campaign debate, but the video of this was scrubbed from YouTube, according to Good Ole Boy at RealAmericanPolitics

Keyes caught him off guard... and Obama spilled:

I watched the entire first and second debates.  I distinctly remember that I had never heard of Obama; my interest was in seeing what Keyes said about the pro-life issue and school vouchers.

At one point in the second debate, Keyes, accused Obama saying, “You are not even a natural born citizen!”
To which Obama immediately replied, “So what? I am running for Illinois Senator, not the presidency.”

At the end of the airing of the second debate, the C-Span host noted, as he read from a single sheet of paper, placed before him, that the Obama Campaign had contacted them and requested them to point out to their viewers that Obama’s response here should not be understood as a denial that he is a natural born citizen, only that Keyes’ accusation had nothing to do with the qualifications of office of a U.S. Senator...

Today... with even Chris Matthews saying "why not just put it out?"- I unapologetically throw my hat in with the birthers... time to cough it up or step-down, Barry. Even is some obscure court ruling keeps Obama in office... this man must not be allowed to run for re-election in 2012. 

And when the day comes when we remove this tumor from the neck of the American eagle... Obama and his accomplices must be punished harshly for not just violation of oath, but the myriad crimes committed in covering-up lack of qualification for US president, up to and including perjury. And that means the entire Obama campaign team, lawyers, and most of the DNC... you're all going to pay dearly for this one.

Get on the stick, GOP congressman... 
where's the subpoenas?

You know how with puzzles at first it’s very slow going (especially if the box is gone so you don’t know what the final picture is supposed to look like) - you try so many pieces, they don’t fit? And every now and then one piece fits but still you’re not much farther along? I mean a big 1000 piece puzzle.

Then finally! towards the end, you can’t stuff those pieces in fast enough, it accelerates.

Has anyone conducted a poll simply asking if the respondents would like to see Obama’s birth certificate (original, long-form) published before the 2012 election? Not a hard thing to poll, one would think.

While they are at it, how about his grades at Occidental, Colombia, and Harvard... Might give us insight into who Obama “really is”.

Before we get over excited, this guy is just an election official, not an official from the Office of Records. The fact that he has sworn that someone told him something is not proof.

Why hasn't Tim Adam's boss ( the Hawaiian woman that he calls "quite a powerful lady") come forward and countered Adam's statement?

Answer: Tim Adams is telling the truth and she isn't willing to commit a felony for Obama.

What matters most here is the court of public opinion.

What has Tim Adams to gain here by coming out with his statement? Huh? Answer: Nothing. He does though have plenty to lose. Making such a statement can not be helpful to his career. After Lieutenant Quail and other odd deaths he even stands to lose his own life or that of a close relative.

OR she doesnt want the hassle of getting involved. Besides,if she did come forward you doubtless say she is lying. So it would be a case of he/said she/said. Hardly definitive.

Typewriter keys of that era have a “finger print” due to the nicks and scratches that accumulate over time. All of the birth certificates produced by that Hawaiian office would have the same “finger prints” on each letter formed by the keys. That would hard to duplicate.

But...Ok...Let's say they could duplicate the paper and typing, etc. What about the numbering of each of those certificates? Then Obama’s fake certificate would have to match **exactly** any copies he may have used for any purpose throughout his life.

Also...There would be bound ledgers where his name would need to be have been entered and these ledgers would be in cursive. It would start in the delivery room. Hospitals are **meticulous** about this mother/baby entries. ( For obvious reasons.) The cursive handwriting in the ledgers would also need to match **exactly** the cursive handwriting found in the nurse's notes in the medical records.

Is the above possible even for an expert? If it were, we would have already seen Obama’s fake birth certificate.

Perhaps some Freeper who is an expert in these matters can provide even more reasons why a fake birth certificate would be hard to produce.

That said, I grew up in the 1960’s and I was taught about the “natural born citizen clause” at three different schools I attended. I was taught that in order two be a “natural born citizen” you had to be born in the United States and have two parents that were citizens at the time of your birth.

Me too. I am 52 and I grew up in the 1960's and I learned the same thing. BRAVO on your post back to curiosity btw.

I have serious doubts anyone growing up in the waste pit of southern California within the last 34 years ever got a decent education. Brainwashing yes - education no.

excellent overview of adoption

except in my experience, perhaps in adopting from a foreign country, other data can be changed on the new “birth” certificate created by adoption, aside from parentage

child’s new name of course, and even birth date

Thanks for your help. I don’t neccesarily need the photo, I was thinking someone went to the yearbook(s) and/or law review to gather anything they could. Someone suggested he never changed the name back to Obama. That could help.
Even little cities use school yearbooks as an investigative tool. I used them in many cases where there was no other sort of information. I have a cold case murder from 1982. The local info was the best I could do on backgrounds, etc..
I was just wondering if anyone did some digging on this. Thanks again for your comments and help.

“... his US citizenship was forsaken for the marriage to Lolo.”

Correct. Obama’s vulnerability is not in his vital records held in Hawaii, but his immigration records held at USCIS.

Obama came back to America as Barry Soetoro, Indonesian National. The Soetoro adoption was annulled in 1971. The annullment terminated the parental rights of Lolo Soetoro, but did not change Obama’s school records, immunization records or his Indonesian citizenship.

Obama was issued a Green Card and obtained a SSN as an Indonesian National legally residing in America. He evenutally naturalized as a U.S. Citizen and was issued a Certificate of Nationality to prove he is an U.S. Citizen.

It doesn’t sound so crazy anymore, but Obama is a U.S. native born immigrant who becamed a Naturalized U.S. Citizen.

To: GGMac; Beckwith; Danae

Hawaii allows an adoption to be set aside.

Unless the HDOH is lying about the name their records are under, the adoption was probably set aside. Beckwith argues that this procedure is why BHO came back to HI in 1971, if I’m understanding correctly. Beckwith, correct me if I don’t have that right.

The problem we have is that if the HDOH can lie at will - as it does - then we just have no firm ground to stand on to even speculate. After all the research and analysis, all I can say is that we don’t know anything AT ALL until the transaction logs for all the records are disclosed and we can see which of the HDOH’s statements are truthful and which are sheer fabrication.

The way we’re going to get those transaction logs disclosed and get some closure on this issue is by getting our state legislatures to require the transaction logs to be disclosed together with the actual birth and citizenship documents before a candidate can be placed on the ballots.

A bill that could do that is posted at http://butterdezillion.files.wordpress.com/2011/01/final-short-form-eligibility-bill1.pdf . I’m asking everyone to e-mail that to their state legislator and ask them to introduce and pass it or something similar. Or if there is an eligibility bill already proposed in their state, ask the legislators to add a requirement for the transaction logs as well.

The Inspector General for HHS has released a report that makes it clear why a measure like that is important, at http://oig.hhs.gov/oei/reports/oei-07-99-00570.pdf . The IG concludes that states need to decide for themselves what documentation they will require as proof for claims, based on the reality that fraudulent documents can be used to get genuine documents and the truth is known only by looking at the whole picture.

The possibility of someone claiming an at-home birth is specifically mentioned as an easy way to get fraudulent BC’s. If what the HDOH told Lori Starfelt is correct and there was a requirement for a baby to be seen by a HI doctor within the first 30 days, that still allows for fraudulent BC’s claiming a HI birth that are perfectly legal, as noted by Aloha .... (can’t remember his name here on FR). The baby would have to arrive in HI within the first 30 days, unless a doctor was willing to fraudulently claim the child was born within the last 30 days (which would make for children whose birth might actually be weeks or months sooner than their BC says). Interesting that the dr that Abercrombie appointed as health secretary is being investigated for fraud. Medicare fraud, I believe, but it still speaks of the willingness to turn a blind eye to the rule of law.

That would explain why there are so few claimed unattended births in Hawaii for 1961. They considered it an attended birth if a doctor examined the mother or baby within the allotted time. Everything would seem legitimate, just looking at the statistics - and yet lots of people who immigrated to Hawaii with a newborn could have been fraudulently registered as Hawaii births.

Danae, do you remember the name of the Aloha person who talked about seeing people arriving in HI being told they could get a Hawaii BC easily? If you remember the name, could you ping him/her?

No, the State of Hawaii confirmed that the (legally invalid, as they indirectly confirmed elsewhere) vital records SAY Obama was born in Hawaii.

But now we’ve got Abercrombie saying the records he can find are a notation in the archives.

So we’ve got discrepancies in the official stories out of Hawaii’s government.

What do you think is the proper procedure for dealing with discrepancies?

To: Rashputin

Thanks for that information. Fascinating.

It is possible for a state to pass a law which would require the “natural born citizen” issue to be ruled on by the courts. That is currently in the works in several state legislatures. So I do feel pretty confident that we will eventually get a ruling on that. Whether or not it will be based on the original intent of the Founders probably depends on the swing vote at SCOTUS. Which is scary.

The ability to forge documents is a growing concern, and given the tampering we already know about with Obama’s records (draft registration, passport, etc), it is something we need to take seriously with Obama. I agree with you that the procedures currently in place do nothing to require forensic analysis and without a requirement nobody in government is going to touch this issue.

That’s why I believe we need to get at least one state to pass a law that requires certified, non-manipulable transaction logs to be disclosed along with the birth and citizenship records.

The devil really is in the details, and I believe it was the prospect of such a law being introduced and passed that made Abercrombie balk in what I believe was a move to prepare the public to be shown a forged long-form BC for Obama - with the unveiling timed to embarrass “birthers” and convince state legislators that the eligibility issue is a crock that they don’t want to be associated with. Thus derailing the whole move for state eligibility laws.

I honestly believe that the only thing standing between the good people of America and a total, triumphant whitewash and blowing away of this issue is whether or not we can get ONE STATE to require transaction logs for birth and citizenship records submitted as proof of presidential eligibility.

And besides just requiring the candidate to swear that they’ve never been a citizen of another country we actually need to require the citizenship documentation. We need to require the candidate to give the SOS permission to do the investigation him/herself to see what records are held by the Department of State and INS, and to receive the transaction logs for those documents.

We already know that Obama’s passport file has been illegally accessed 3 times. Before any state SOS declares Obama to be Constitutionally eligible they need to know what was done those 3 times.

The inspector general for HHS reported on how easy it is to obtain genuine documents such as a birth certificate based on fraudulent documents such as a social security card, via passports, etc. We know there is something fishy with Obama’s SSN, passport file, and draft registration - and we know the HDOH has indirectly confirmed they have no legally-valid BC for Obama. To find out the real story, the IG of HHS recommends that states decide for themselves what documentation to require in order to not be snookered by fraud.

That is EXACTLY what needs to happen in these eligibility bills. We can’t do forensic analysis of everybody in the country, but the person who holds the nuclear football should at least get that level of scrutiny.

The bill I’m asking people to e-mail their state legislators and ask for is posted at http://butterdezillion.files.wordpress.com/2011/01/final-short-form-eligibility-bill1.pdf

But to find all that out you’d have to have a legal investigation that could subpoena all those records. At this point nobody would ever do that unless they are forced to do so. And that is the rub. That is what we need to fix.

That could well be, which is a reason why we need not only the birth records but also the citizenship records - and not just based on what the candidate is willing to SAY exists, but on the SOS actually being able to get the records (including transaction logs for the records) from the Department of State, INS, etc - anybody who would have citizenship records.

I hate to sound like a broken record, but I really, really would like to see a state pass into law something very close to what is posted at http://butterdezillion.files.wordpress.com/2011/01/final-short-form-eligibility-bill1.pdf . I believe it covers the bases as best we can, from all the different angles.

Here’s the list of R-controlled states which probably have the best shot at passing something like that, including the deadlines for bill introduction (and drafting takes extra time too so all these states need to be worked on ASAP). So PLEASE, if you live in any of these states, PRETTY PLEASE ask them to pass something like the bill above. C&P the text, whatever it takes.

Here’s what I’ve got for bill introduction deadlines for R-controlled states:

Alabama (to be determined)
Arizona 2/17
Florida 3/8
Georgia no deadline
Idaho 1/29
Indiana 1/15
Kansas 1/31
Maine Dec 17, 2010
Michigan no deadline
North Dakota 1/24 and 1/27
Ohio no deadline
Oklahoma 1/20
Pennsylvania no deadline
South Carolina to be determined
South Dakota 2/1
Tennessee 10th legislative day
Texas 3/12
Utah 2/3
Wisconsin no deadline
Wyoming 1/26

At this point I am not going to discuss anything further with regard to whether Obama was born in Hawaii or not, because I don’t have time to chase down all of your objections, and it doesn’t really matter if he was born in the U.S. or outside the U.S. Either way in my opinion, he is ineligible because he is not a “natural born citizen”. That has been my belief since I first learned he was running for president and I started to read about him.

At the time of Obama’s birth the person he claims to be his father Kenyan and was a British subject from birth. This much was stated on at least one of Obama’s campaign related websites as well as other websites discussing his eligibility. There are multiple times this has been attested to by Obama himself, his wife, and his campaigns through the years.

Since his father was not a U.S. citizen at the time Obama was born, he does not have two parents who were U.S. citizens at the time of his birth and therefore is not a natural born citizen.

This interpretation was what was taught in schools for years prior to your birth, and is clearly the only correct interpretation of the “natural born citizen” clause if one takes the time to read the constitution and other related documents from the time period that this clause was written in my opinion.

I can't find the danged link, but earlier in the month someone posted information showing that even if Barry has a valid BC, he's still not eligible. If I can find that I'll post it again since it had a good diagram showing the requirements in a succinct form. If nothing else, he wasn't born to two U.S. citizen parents even if he can produce a BC. Add to that his failure to maintain his natal citizenship and it's a legal slam dunk if it is fairly heard (I know, a big “if” given the makeup of the SC).

So, it's all a matter of people having the will to do this guy in on legal Constitutional grounds rather than whistling past the graveyard. Some folks are already getting depressed over the idea that he'll get a second term, yet they're not ready to go after this guy to the degree required to keep him off the ballot in 2012. That's the sort of giving up that the majority have done with great regularity and it's why we're at the end of fifty years of creeping fascism.

You know, it wasn’t that I believed Obama... I never do!

BUT I found the idea of a President Biden unpalatable (intentionally chosen to aid Obama’s job security, imo)... and felt that focusing on the ballot box was the quickest and surest way to rescue this country from the grim Obammunist era. I do not believe what this country needs from Congress will be achieved with Obama in the WH, period.

But a disqualified Obama presidency has wider implication than just his removal from office: the entire election would be null and void... Biden removed too... then likely Bush re-installed until new elections could be held. All Obama-signed legislation and czars would be rendered illegitimate and powerless.

If some obscure court ruling could manage to keep Obama in office for the time-being, at least he wouldn’t be on the ballot in 2012, and would be politically crippled.

Sound good to me- due to dedicated special interest constituencies, Obama’s approval has only dipped below 40% once... no matter how he wrecks this country.

And he needs to GO

I’d like to see all his college records as well, including whether or not he applied as a U.S. citizen or a foreign student!

Beckwith argues that this procedure (ther adoption) is why BHO came back to HI in 1971, if I’m understanding correctly. Beckwith, correct me if I don’t have that right.

I wouldn’t describe my theory as an argument, but rather a “best guess” as to why Barak Obama showed up in Hawaii in December, 1971.

The fact is we don’t KNOW anything about Barack Obama until 1971, and we DON’T KNOW very much about Obama since then.

By the way, don’t you think if Obama’s COLB were genuine, the State of Hawaii would have spelled Obama’s alleged father’s name correctly?

Knowing the lawyers and law firms who are involved, the $2mm estimate for his spending is very low. It looks to me as though we can see around $10mm of legal effort expended in defense of his position--maybe more.

A second important point is that we need to distinguish between a birth certificate argument and the issue of whether or not he was born anywhere in the US.

It has been apparent for some time; I believe the anonymous former employee who released copies of the documents in the Hawaii records file through the midwest lawyer two years ago is credible; there is no long form birth certificate to be had or found in Hawaii. He wasn't born there in August of 1961--and a birth file was established in the name of Barrack H. Obama II on August 8, 1961 without a birth certificate.

I will also say as I have elsewhere, that it appears to me as though the Smith Birth Certificate is a credible original record attesting to the birth of Obama II in Mombasa on August 4, 1961.

All of that said, this issue could become much trickier.

If you could get a legal proceeding in process in which the evidence includes the Smith Certificate, that certificate has a baby footprint on it. So at that point, likely the court orders Obama to produce a verifiable current print. If the current print matches, the game is over--the match proves both the Smith Certificate and the fact that Obama was born in Kenya and is not eligible to hold the office of President. The US Marshall gets the moving trucks--Joe is now Acting President.

But, if the print does not match, what are you left with?

It appears to me that there is a fair line of analysis that the current occupant of the White House was substituted into the identity of Obama II sometime in late 1970. I don't see him using the name until much much later--perhaps the mid 1980's (there is a single reference using the name Obama on one of the student notes however there is no credible evidence when that note appeared).

So if the print doesn't match, Obama then shrugs his shoulders and says all he knows is what his mother Stanley Ann told him; he is sure he was born in the US; here is his passport.

Now what do you say?

Even though you have state legislation mandating that the filing officer get affirmative proof of eligibility, a federal court might decide the Obama story is sufficient and order the state officer to accept the filing on the grounds of an equal protection argument.

So we need to be careful--this dance may not be over with resolution of the birth certificate argument.

It would merit the accumulation of some real funding to hire an investigator to look for real evidence of where he was in fact born before we get to the end of the process.

There’s a great 1980-era interview by Yuri Bezmenov, who was a KGB guy who defected to the US. He says the communists have 4 different stages of taking over a country. The first and longest stage is that of demoralization. It is the process of killing both the values and the will of the general public. It involves quietly taking over the foundations of the society with pro-communists, that the entire society is made up of people who either sympathize with communism or feel hopeless to fight everybody around them with all the powers-that-be against them.

Google Yuri Bezmenov and see if you can find that interview. I actually transcribed it. I might see if I can find that file. I’ve had to scrub my hard drive so many times I’m not sure if I can locate that file but I’ll try. That transcript would be a good thing to post, because it shows exactly where we are now, how we got here, and what the end of it all will be unless we pull our heads out of the sand.

It was in these settings that I was taught that a “natural born citizen” was a child born in the U.S. to two parents who were U.S. Citizens.

Sorry, there's no way that is true. Either you have a faulty memory, or you ladies are lying. I don't know which.

No one, repeat, no one, prior to the Fall of 2008, claimed that natural born status required two citizen parents. Period.

Why did no know bring up the two-citizen parent requirement when Spiro Agnew was a vice presidential candidate? Or better yet, Michael Dukakis? Both men had at least one non-citizen parent.

Or better yet, how come not a single person raised the issue until AFTER Obama was elected? It was both well-known that he was running AND that his father wasn't a citizen. And yet, no one thought that might be a problem until after he was elected.

Sorry, ladies. Your story just doesn't pass the smell test.

No, the State of Hawaii confirmed that the (legally invalid, as they indirectly confirmed elsewhere) vital records SAY Obama was born in Hawaii.

Yes, and since vital records about births consist of birth birth certificates, that implies his birth certificate says he was born in Hawaii.

But now we’ve got Abercrombie saying the records he can find are a notation in the archives.

That is not what he said.

So we’ve got discrepancies in the official stories out of Hawaii’s government.

No we don't.

If he “enjoys the controversy”, he enjoys it in the same mindset as a 9-year old enjoys teasing a cat.

Not a bad analogy, though in his case there really isn't any danger of getting scratched, as birthers pose no real threat to him.

Honolulu most likely. Maybe Chicago, maybe another place he lived. But I am betting it might have been done close to the time he decided to run for St. Senate in Il.

The constant misspellings are another strange thing.

I e-mailed OIP Director Takase once to ask what exact name the HDOH is referring to when they say “President Obama”, explaining how misspellings and alternate name and initial combinations have obscured the existence of certain records. I got back a lecture about how “President” is an honorary title, blah, blah, blah.

Obfuscation.

I sent the HDOH a request for a listing of any index data they have for Obama, Dunham, Soetoro, Sutoro, etc. They implied that they can only search for one unique name and one unique vital event at a time so they wanted me to list all the combinations, which I did. I said I couldn’t imagine them not having the ability to do a string search, like Google.

Shortly after that they changed their web page to say that it would be $7.50 for every individual search they do - full name and vital event.

I typed out a word and then decided to delete it. I need to watch my mouth.

When I called them on the illegality of their charging for index records without going through the full rule-changing procedure as required by law, they tried for a while to argue with me and then the Ombudsman’s Office apparently got ahold of them and told them they couldn’t do that. So now they require snail mail instead and say they MIGHT charge a fee. And they mysteriously “didn’t receive” requests unless you send it with delivery confirmation.

Sandbagging and gaslighting.

So I never did get my answer regarding what records they have for somebody with a last name of Soetoro or Sutoro.

My belief is rules are rules. The Constitution cannot continue to be ignored, else it gives justification for ignoring other provisions, eg the 10th Amendment.

Furthermore, letting liberals continue on with this charade just enourages them more. Voter fraud is rampant in Democratic strongholds. They don’t care about integrity of the process. It’s always about them. Don’t cut them, their programs, steal from others to give to them. You don’t give them one inch, ever, never. They are childish brats and can’t be trusted with anything, so don’t give in in the first place.

You didn’t read post 194 did you?

Obama created the Birther Movement because he needed a smoke screen for his Immigration status. His adoption by Lolo changed his citizenship, and it is one that Obama has used to travel under as an adult. At BEST he is a Naturalized citizen. This is what the entire birther mockery bs is all about, covering this one simple issue.

THey did that to me too when I order a copy of my long form. They “lost” it. I resent it with return reciept requested and got the postcard back. They STILL tried to say they didn’t get it, but I had the proof. Thats how I eventually ended up talking with Onaka’s secretary, and Onaka.

No, you've made a lot of assertions that you can't support. It's really too bad that you think the provision of supporting evidence is somehow a "waste of time."

Thus far she has produced about 100,000 times more evidence in support of her beliefs than you have in trying to prove her wrong. All your naysaying anounts to the braying of a donkey in the wild.

Sorry curiosity, but you best drop it now. You lost this round badly.

Sigh. Not the adoption candard again. This one was debunked more than two years ago. There's no evidence he was adopted, and even if he were, it wouldn't have caused him to lose his citizenship.

There neither is, nor was at the time, any provision under US immigration law under which a US citizen child loses his citizenship due to adoption by a foreigner. Period.

and it is one that Obama has used to travel under as an adult.

An allegation for which there is exactly zero evidence.
