Skip to comments.Obama Birth Certificate Issue Will Simply Not Go Away.

For some reason this issue with Obamas birth certificate will not fade away. There seems to be a nagging belief by many that he is not a natural born citizen of this country and is therefore not qualified to be president. Critics of those that continue to hang onto this theory simply swat away these suggestions as racist (I know, shocking) and coming from people that dont want to see a half black dude in the White house.
One tiny little bit of information, that you will never find in the lamestream media, seems to point to the fact that those that doubt Obamas citizenship status just might be on to something.
Back in April of 08 highly partisan Democratic Senator Claire McCaskill of Missouri, a staunch and fervent supporter of Barack Obama, inexplicably introduced Senate Resolution 511 a resolution recognizing that John Sidney McCain, III, is a natural born citizen. She was joined by five other Democratic senators including Barack Obama in an effort to push this bill through the senate. The original text of this bill read:
S. RES. 511
Recognizing that John Sidney McCain, III, is a natural born citizen.
IN THE SENATE OF THE UNITED STATES
April 10, 2008
Mrs. MCCASKILL (for herself, Mr. LEAHY, Mr. OBAMA, Mr. COBURN, Mrs. CLINTON, and Mr. WEBB) submitted the following resolution; which was referred to the Committee on the Judiciary
Recognizing that John Sidney McCain, III, is a natural born citizen.
Whereas the Constitution of the United States requires that, to be eligible for the Office of the President, a person must be a `natural born Citizen of the United States;
Whereas the term `natural born Citizen, as that term appears in Article II, Section 1, is not defined in the Constitution of the United States;
Whereas there is no evidence of the intention of the Framers or any Congress to limit the constitutional rights of children born to Americans serving in the military nor to prevent those children from serving as their countrys President;
Whereas such limitations would be inconsistent with the purpose and intent of the `natural born Citizen clause of the Constitution of the United States, as evidenced by the First Congresss own statute defining the term `natural born Citizen;
Whereas the well-being of all citizens of the United States is preserved and enhanced by the men and women who are assigned to serve our country outside of our national borders;
Whereas previous presidential candidates were born outside of the United States of America and were understood to be eligible to be President; and
Whereas John Sidney McCain, III, was born to American citizens on an American military base in the Panama Canal Zone in 1936: Now, therefore, be it
Resolved,That John Sidney McCain, III, is a `natural born Citizen under Article II, Section 1, of the Constitution of the United States.
At first blush one may think big deal but read it again and see what these five Democrats were really trying to accomplish.
a)Whereas the term `natural born Citizen, as that term appears in Article II, Section 1, is not defined in the Constitution of the United States
b)Whereas previous presidential candidates were born outside of the United States of America and were understood to be eligible to be President;
Now why would five Democratic senators including the one running for president bother drafting a resolution declaring their Republican opponent eligible for office while carefully crafting the bill to be accepting of someone born outside of the U.S. and perhaps NOT a natural born citizen to also be eligible to hold the office of president if elected? Hmmmmmm?
It seems clear to me what they were attempting to accomplish especially with statement b and that was to declare Obama eligible for the office of president even if he wasnt born here or qualified as a natural born citizen.
There was no need to issue this resolution for McCain as he was already known to have been born at the Coco Solo Naval Air Station in the Panama Canal Zone, Panama which was under U.S. control at the time of his birth. His father was naval officer John S. McCain, Jr. McCain was cleared to run for president in 2000 based on this information so there was no reason for McCaskill and her pals to introduce the resolution except as cover for Obama in the event he was indeed elected as president.
There is a reason why Obama’s origins are a mystery.
However, in some eyes, this makes him an ILLEGITIMATE President(-ELect) and therefore we can describe him as such. ;-)
Can some legal beagle help me out! If Barack was born in Kenya would that disqualify him for President? Even now after the election?
Yes, and there seems to be thoughts that BHO’s mother is not his true birth mother, and that he could be a secret son of Malcolm X, and that his mother was enrolled at Washington when Obama was supposedly born. The site where I read this also posted a picture of BHO and one of Malcolm X side-by-side and there is a striking facial resemblance. I am glad Berg filed this suit and won’t give up. We need the true certified, authentic, notarized copies of his birth records.
This is all unnecessary if obama releases his birth certificate. Then let the chips fall. It’s that simple.
The resemblance is...disturbing.
Where is his original COLB, and why is it so secretive? Who is Barry's father? Is the father listed on the original (1961) COLB?
Under what name and nationality did he apply to Columbia and Harvard Law school? Who funded his education? With less-than stellar college records, and sealed ones at that, what was his exceptionalism that got him into Harvard? Since no one seems to remember anything about Barry while at Columbia, is there any confirmation that Barry did or did not run into Ayers while they lived in the same neighborhood in New York?
Can someone produce the passport he used to travel to Pakistan in the 1980's? How did an 'American' travel to Pakistan when Americans were banned from traveling there in that timeframe?
Why did he have false (indisputably false) entries on his Illinois Bar Association application regarding aliases, aka's, or "every known by any other name"? Dunham, Soetoro, Obama?
If he held dual citizenship, was it resolved when he turned 21? If so, how and when?
What is the affirmative evidence that he IS eligible to serve as President (citizenship, natural-born)? The lack of any evidence does not mean he IS qualified.
Very good, big black dog. I, for one, will not let this issue drop until Barack Obama shows America his birth certificate. If he has nothing to hide, what’s the problem?
On the other hand, lawsuits made no difference with Bush assuming Presidency in 2001. Therefore, YOU are CORRECT. From here on, just to irritate the Dems and Liberals, we can refer to Obama as ILLEGITIMATE. Have a nice day: time for a celebratory Davidoff Cigar.
That idiotic idea was put out there to DISCREDIT FR.....it’s not true at all. Ann was his mother.
Looks to me that you miscalculated, declaring that these are five Democratic Senators. Truth is, Senator Tom Coburn is a Republican Senator from Oklahoma. Shouldn’t need factcheck.org for this one.
Anyone know to whom this refers?
I see no reason why this conspiracy shouldn’t keep going. It’s fun. Keep it up.
“It’s over. Hawaii says it’s a legal birth certificate.”
Yes, they may have one, but it could very well say that he was born in Kenya, as his grandmother said.
Can you give me ANY reason why Hussein has refused to let the birth certificate made public????
I am talking about the long form that is made at the hospital and very detailed, not the short form that he published on his web site, but declared a fraud by document experts.
