Is this the case before the ex-marine judge who has promised all information will be presented?
That's because this issue is such a simple thing to put to rest. I have a passport and a birth certificate. I can produce them at my house in a matter of minutes. I have not spent a million dollars to either acquire them...or to hide them.
This is not a unreasonable thing to ask for since being a "natural born citizen" of the US is a constitutional requirement for the job of President. It's not hateful, and it's not racist.
Proving that you are should be an honor.
Yet Obama cannot and will not produce either. Why?
But boy, did this picture get them worked up...and it will continnue today.
Click on it for a larger pic and more info. Even though it is most likely not authentic...it underscores the need for Obama to put his own certificate to the same test. But again, he will not.
When I last saw yesterday’s discussion on this, there were problems concerning the date Kenya became indenpendent and changed its name (hey, it’s a Kenyan thing!). So, there’s that.
Although it is pleasant to contemplate comeuppance for the socialist joker I am assuming this document is a fraud. I reckon someone will soon reveal the joke and then a lot of folks will be wiping egg off their faces.
There are two facts in this entire controversy that are very clear to me:
1) Obama does not want to release his original long-form birth certificate.
2) I conclude from #1 above that there is something on it very damaging to him. Politically speaking, it may not make a great deal of difference whether it renders him ineligible for the presidency or not. If he lied about a basic fact of his “compelling biography” it will damage him. It will be very hard to “spin” a lie as anything else but harmful to Obama’s image. Although the last Democratic president committed felonies in office and was touted by many as being a “victim,” so doubtless the left will try to spin any damaging revelations too.
This has been looked into. When did Kenya become a republic, and who is W F Lavendar? Those are merely two.
There is a thread on DU urging people to flood the internets with fake BC documents, for fun and also to disinform us and confuse us (us being the Sheeple in general).
This post from DU better give you naysayers some pause.

Calling all DUers with Photoshop! Your country needs you!
Regarding the “Kenyan birth certificate” (found here), a fellow DUer made an excellent suggestion:

20. We need to create THOUSANDS of them and ship them all over the f*cking place.
bury the f*ckers in precise fakes, all just a little different from each other.
I wanna see heads explode. I wanna see people drooling from the breakdowns.
Won’t you please help? Also, for anyone else (who doesn’t have Photoshop) we will need a name for this operation.
*= my edit.
In 1957 African members were elected to the Legislative Council through a direct election. 1959 saw the release of Kenyatta from detention in Kapenguria. Kenyatta continued with campaign for freedom while under house arrest. In 1960, the colonial government announced plans to transfer power to a democratically elected government. In 1962, the Lancaster constitution conference was held in London where the 1st Kenya constitution was made. Kenya achieved internal self-government on June 1st 1963. Kenya was declared a republic on December 12th 1963 with Jomo Kenyatta as 1st the president. Kenyatta died in 1978 and Daniel Arap Moi took over. In 1982, the Kenyan constitution was amended declaring the country a one party state. By late 80's and early 90's, campaign for multiparty system grew strong. The constitution was amended again in 1991 paving way for multiparty system. A general election was held in 1992 and Kanu party led by Moi won the election. Kanu also won the second election in the multiparty era in 1997. The National Rainbow Coalition defeated Kanu in the 2002 general election. Mwai kibaki was inaugurated as Kenya's third president on 30th December 2002. Kenya Holiday CultureFactsHistoryLanguageReligion.

Here we go:
Ann filed for Divorce Jan. 20, 1964 (Inauguration Day what are the odds?), and the date was set by the presiding judge for the trial to commence 30 days after Obama SR would have responded to his notification, sent to Cambridge, Mass (Cambridge what are the odds? ).
Judge Samuel P. King who granted the divorce last I heard was retired and alive (for now) in his 90s in Hawaii -- MAY or MAY NOT have asked to see the Marriage Certificate. BUT, I bet Judge King asked to see Obama JR's Birth Certificate to confirm Ann's claims that Obama SR was in fact the father. That is standard policy to have a Birth Certificate in case the mother asks for child support from the father (or Welfare) later after the divorce. Judge King probably told Ann to produce a birth certificate before or at trial, which would have been sometime in mid- to late-February 1964 HAD Obama SR answered his notice that was sent to Cambridge.
When Judge King wrote the order on Jan. 23, he had his clerk notify Obama SR via what's referred to as a "knock and nail". That is, the postman leaves the notification on the door for (generally) 10 days and retrieves it after that time passes -- signed or unsigned. That order was sent on Jan. 23 via airmail from Hawaii and was probably posted on Obama SR's door Jan. 27-28.
Obama SR's notification was unsigned by him and apparently IGNORED -- either he didn't want to accept it OR he was NOT at that location.
However, Judge King granted the divorce to Ann Obama (which changed back to Ann Dunham) exactly 60 days from when the original order was request by Ann by default.
NOW, my guess is that Judge King asked to see Obama JRs Birth Certificate before he'd be willing to grant the divorce, either at trial or by default on March 20, 1964. Ann probably didnt have the birth certificate when she filed on Jan 20. That's when this birth certificate would have been generated -- before trial for the 1964 divorce.
Important side note: the Certificate issue date of Feb 17, 1964, is JUST A FEW SHORT MONTHS AFTER KENYA BECAME INDEPENDENT on Dec. 12, 1963. TO THIS DATE, this may be the only certificate on Kenyan file today if British documents were sent to the UK for archiving leading up Kenya becoming an independent nation.
If you note the date on the Certified Copy, it was created by the Registrar in Kenya on Feb. 17, 1964. The Kenyan Birth Certificate would have been issued in the midst of the divorce -- AFTER the divorce was filed by Ann in Hawaii on Jan. 20, but BEFORE the divorce was granted by Judge King on March 20.
Furthermore, it's quite plausible that once Ann actually had this Kenyan birth certificate in her hands, and the divorce was granted on March 20, her attorney, George Kerr, counseled her on Hawaiian birth certificate "loopholes" and told her how to file for a Hawaiian "Certificate of Delayed Birth" to get Welfare or OTHER support for young Obama as a child of a non-supporting foreign national.
As Hawaiian law allows, that CODB could have been "converted" later to a Certificate of Live Birth (long birth certificate) in the 60s or 70s, which would then be a "root document" of the famed Certification of Live Birth (short birth certificate on "Fight the Smears") we see today presented as "proof" of birth of Barack Hussein Obama II, reportedly in Hawaii (note: the abstract Certification of Live Birth certificate did not exist in Hawaii until November 2001).
I cant personally vouch for the veracity of the Kenyan birth certificate itself, not knowing how or from whom Orly obtained the birth certificate (the chain of evidence). It may have been obtained quite surreptitiously from the only filed Kenyan birth certificate record copy requested -- likely generated from the 1964 divorce.
It's QUITE possible that all other copies of this Kenyan birth certificate may have been scrubbed from Kenyan archives, but this one may have survived in a lone Vital Statistics office somewhere in Kenya not known about until now.
Hillary will be in Kenya on Barack’s birthday.
