Liberals and feckless judges can deny it, but the questions about Obama’s eligibility remain
coachisright.com ^ | March 11, 2012 | George Spelvin, staff writer

Barack Hussein Obama, using eight different names, has failed to meet eligibility requirements for the office of U.S. President according to a 19 point challenge alleging he was born in Kenya to a Kenyan citizen and a teen age mother not old enough to convey U.S. citizenship.

Democrat Attorney Philip J. Berg who filed his challenge to the nomination petition with the Pennsylvania Commonwealth on February 23, doubts in Argument 13 that “Obama ever held Natural Born Citizenship status!”

Centering on the NBC clause, Article II, Sect. 1, Clause 5, the eligibility challenge states that Barack Hussein Obama, aka Barack Hussein Soetoro is “not a Natural Born Citizen as defined by the U.S, Constitution. Furthermore, Obama was “born in Kenya on August 4, 1961, (and) at the time of his birth his mother was only 18 years old and not old enough to confer U.S. NBC status to him.”

The native born PA attorney is bringing transparency to the Obama eligibility problem for which media pundits and liberal politicians have ridiculed birthers for even bringing up the situation.

Berg’s argumentation point 3 says (BHO) was “born at Coast Hospital in Mombasa, Kenya located in Coast Province,’ to a father who was a Kenyan citizen, and to a mother “not old enough and did not reside in the U.S. long enough to register the Candidate’s birth in Hawaii as a NBC.

Berg cites five different case law applications here and further says the law applied to overseas births must be in effect at the time of the birth in question.

He cites Marquez-Marques aka Moreno v. Gonzales. 455F.3rd 548 (5th Circuit 2006) and Runnett v. Shultz 901 F.2d 782,783 (9th Cir. 1990) to further support his challenge.

The eight different names cited are Barack Hussein Obama;….

This guy is a phony

Unfortunately, that is true about two people in this case: Berg and Obama.

NB how Berg interjects red herrings along the trail. e.g., “born in Kenya on August 4, 1961, (and) at the time of his birth his mother was only 18 years old and not old enough to confer U.S. NBC status to him.” That is, instead of sticking to the "Constitutional Case," he opens yet another legal can of worms. How can the mother alone confer NBC? O, do lets take a year or two to decide that, before we tackle Article II.

Berg, IMNSVHO, is a sower of confusion. Originally paid by the Clintons, after 2007-8 he has gone on with his various charades ... probably at the best of someone on Team Obama.

...no hard copy birth certificate;
...no college grades or thesis;
...no passport records;
...several ss #s, most recent taken out in a state he’d never been to in 1977;
...lived in a foreign student dorm as an undergrad;
...visited Pakistan in ‘81 with his boyfriend, likely under an Indonesian passport.

Many, many questions...none of which the msm are interested in...though they are still trailing Palin’s children.

Describing obama’s mother as Rush described a law student from Georgetown, I’d have to say Mrs. obama was a real teeenage “fluke”.

When Obama becomes just another citizen without the keys to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue and has no more “ultimate” power he will be impotent.

Then the dams will burst and an unheard of deluge of people will suddenly take up with info upon how he was propelled to become POTUS.

No more power, no more threats, no more money. His supporters cannot kill everyone that so far has challenged or investigated him.

And those that did die will be remembered and ultimately connected to who did kill them.

how can I take someone seriously, when one of their claims is Obama used 8 different names and then lists the names: Barack H. Obama, Barry H. Obama, Barack Hussein Obama, Barry Hussein Obama, etc. That’s like saying I’ve used different names in my life, such as Michael Francis Lowe, Michael F. Lowe, Mike F. Lowe, etc.

How can the mother alone confer NBC?

Under the 1961 law, if a child was born out of the country to a single US citizen parent, in order for that child to be declared a citizen, the parent had to be 18 years of age and had lived in the US for a certain length of time(I forget the exact ruling), Bozo's mother didn't qualify, if she had he would be a Natural Born Citizen no matter where he was born. The law today is slightly different but the law at the time is the one in play. Therefore, the article is correct and the statement is correct whether you want to believe it or not. Please don't give me the BS about Two US citizen parents being required, that has never been upheld, even if you count the one instance a lot of people(forget the name of the ruling)quote.

The point is Obama was born, but he does not have a birth certificate for this country. I buy that he was born in Kenya in 1961. If he was born in Hawaii, we would have seen some documentation by now, not a phoney copy made by computer.

I am really disappointed that the men of this country will not insist that this man prove he is elligible under the Constitution. Starting with R. Barclay Surrick, the people who could have stopped him, did not. R. Barclay Surrick is the judge who first heard the case against Obama. If he had any courage, he would have insisted Obama produce his birth certificate and stuck to his guns. He said instead. that Berg had no right to ask. If a citizen of the United States does not have the right to ask, who does?

Please, somebody defend the Constitution.

The left is right about one thing. There is racism involved in the whole eligibility issue. However, they are deliberately or ignorantly wrong in the explanation of it.

A white man or even Latin or Asian would never have been elected or allowed to remain in office, if they had as many discrepancies as “Barry Steve Barack Hussein Soetoro Abdullah Saebarkah Obama.”

That is the true racism that he is given a pass, when no one else, not even a conservative black, would.

It should never be forgotten that it was the Clintons who gave birth to the "birther" movement.

During the last presidential campaign, in August, 2008, Bill Clinton was asked if he thought Obama was qualified to be president.
Clinton's rather odd, cryptic reply:

"The constitution sets qualification for the president. And then the people decide who they think would be the better president."

Bill Clinton made this reference to the Constitution shortly after America's latest fad, the "community organizer" from Chicago, popped up out of nowhere and stole his wife's destiny by winning, in rather sleazy fashion including the shameless playing of "the race card", the Democrat nomination for President.

It has been my opinion since that time that the Clintons know something, and that it was they who quite deliberately fanned the flames of controversy over Obama's birth. Remember, it was a prominent Hillary Clinton supporter, Philadelphia lawyer Philip Berg, who launched *the first* Obama eligibility lawsuit. That lawsuit was filed in August of 2008, shortly after Bill Clinton made the curious reference to the Constitution when asked if he thought Obama was qualified to be President. Coincidental timing? Sure it was.

How is that relevant to what the Founders considered a Natural Born Citizen? Congress does not have the power to define or re-define terms used in the Constitution. If they did, then they could re-define "arms" to be "pea-shooters" and the Second Amendment would be dead.

The obvious intent of the Founders was to eliminate one very great threat that a President would have divided loyalties or even the appearance of divided loyalties.

Who can deny that Obama has the appearance of divided loyalties?

Au contraire. By then he'll have all key positions in government planted with his commie cosorts. You know what they say about firing a government employee - it never happens. These will be the movers and shakers. These will be the ones who decide which direction the US will take. These will be the ones who make the rules. This is his hope and change. This will be his legacy. This will be the end of the US as we know it. They will have won.

Many, many questions...none of which the msm are interested in

Nor, sadly, are most "conservative" talk show hosts who defend the Constitution when it is convenient for them to do so -- and who condemn those of us who want the matter thoroughly investigated.

There are so many unanswered questions and demonstrable lies surrounding the socialist president and his administration that one would think if for no other reason than mere curiousity that the likes of Medved, Hewitt, Levin, et al. -- all of whom I admire and enjoy -- would show an ounce of interest or at least stop condemning (a carefully chosen word) those of use who do.

The constitution says nothing about both parents being US citizens. If your parent(s) is/are US citizen(s) and you are born on an unnamed atoll in the Pacific you are a natural born citizen. No matter what you think, that is the way it is.

However, if Bozo was born in Kenya, by the laws in effect at that time, he is NOT a natural born citizen or any type of American citizen.

Oh, yes, one more thing. Please cite me the article(or amendment)that specifically states this. There isn't one, so you can't. McCain is indeed a natural born citizen and can(but hopefully won't ever)serve as US President.

If we add to these facts, the GOP has set there target on obe. One mite suggest they have in invested interest in maintaining the status quo as having the issue challenged at this moment in time.

Should the matter be resolved prior to the DNC convention, the target change will confound the GOP, hence I would posit "interference" is being run from both sides thus reducing the possibility of Hillary or the like in the mix.

Wrong again.

I was born in the Canal Zone (not Colon, Rep of Panama, as was Panama Juan).

All of us who were born in the Canal Zone or in Panamanian territory...Panamanian territory like Panama Juan...I was born in Gorgas Hospital, Ancon, Canal Zone...are considered dual by the State Department.

Period.

If you don’t like the law, go fight the State Department.

P.S.

I never fully answered you comment.

There are two prerequisites to be a natural born citizen. One prerequisite cannot be separated from the other. They are both tied together.

1. Both parents have to U.S. citizens at the time of the child’s birth.

2. That child has to be born with the continent of the U.S.

Both Panama Juan and I failed at #2.

Again, do your homework.

(When Romney’s father ran for Potus, a legal analysis was recorded into the Congretional Record.)

While not a binding legal case, it represented a well researched legal conclusion. 1. George Romney was not eligible, born in Mexico. 2. Native born=natural born. 3. No mention of Emerich de Vattel

George Romney dropped out, before this eligibility became an issue. He fared poorly in polls, as well.)

This is what I find interesting about Obama: Obama was quick to release a copy of his Hawaii long form birth certificate so he could try to put a quick stop to the growing outcry, led by Trump, for Obama to release his Hawaii long form birth certificate.

1. If I understand what happened correctly, the President of the United States, Obama, had to make a special request to Hawaii officials in order for those officials to release his long form birth certificate.

2. At the same time, I think that Obama used the term "silliness" to describe the growing public demand that he release his long form Hawaii birth certificate, so, according to Obama, he went ahead and released his long form birth certificate to put a stop to all this "silliness."

3. Occidental College records: On the other hand, when Obama is asked over and over by the public to release his Occidental College in California records---records that would be easier for Obama to obtain than his Hawaii long form birth certificate because a simple phone call to Occidental officials would probably have his college records released almost immediately---Obama has been conspicuously silent.

4. So when it comes to the public outcry that Obama release his Occidental records, President Obama does not describe the outcry as just a bunch of "silliness" as he did when he described the public's outcry that he release his Hawaii long form birth certificate.

5. That is, you don’t hear President Obama or any of his immediate staff making fun of those people who demand over and over that Obama release his Occidental College records like they make fun of those “birthers” who claim the President Obama’s long form Hawaii birth certificate is a fake. No sir.

6. President Obama and his press secretary do not even bring up the subject of Occidental records at White House daily press conferences.

7. In fact, it looks like President Obama will never voluntarily release his Occidental College in California records in our lifetime, no matter how much pressure we the public put on the President of the United States.

8. Why is that? What is the President of the United States trying to hide that is in his Occidental College in California records?

9. Social Security controversy: And there is the controversy surrounding Obama's Social Security number: Why is the number assigned to President Obama in the 1970s a number that would normally be assigned to a person who filed for his Social Security number in Connecticut, when there is no record that teenager Obama ever lived in or visited Connecticut?

10. Again, it would be easier for Obama to get a copy of his original Social Security application and to quickly release it to the public than it would be for him to get a copy of his Hawaii long form birth certificate, but yet Obama has been conspicuously silent when it comes to discussing his Connecticut issued Social Security number. Why is that?

11. That is, we don't see Obama going on national tv and describing this Social Security controversy as just a bunch of "silliness" as he described the controversy surrounding his Hawaii long form birth certificate. Why is that?

12. We also don’t see Obama’s immediate staff going on talk shows and making fun of those people who want President Obama to finally explain how he ended up with a Connecticut Social Security number and put this controversy to rest. Why is that, when members of President Obama's staff and his supporters were quick to jump all over Trump and ridicule him when Trump questioned the authenticity of President Obama’s long and short form birth certificates?

13. I make the statement above about how easy it would be for President Obama to obtain a copy of his Social Security application form for this reason: Anybody can easily and quickly obtain a copy of his Social Security application form by simply requesting a copy from Social Security and paying a small fee.

14. In addition, as we know, the information asked for on the brief Social Security application form is very short, that is, the application form basically asks only for your name, date of birth, and home address. That is it. So why would President Obama be so scared to let the public examine his original Social Security application form when there is really not much personal information on it?

15. NOTE: You can check out Social Security's website for details on how to obtain a copy of your Social Security application form by paying a small fee.

16. For instance, one can see a copy of deceased President Eisenhower's original Social Security application on the web, but, of course, Eisenhower's application can now be seen because he is deceased.

17. Again, President Obama would probably find it much easier to have his Occidental College in California records and his Social Security application form released to the public than he would in having his Hawaii long form birth certificate released, but the President of the United States, Obama, and his staff have remained conspicuously silent when it comes to the release of these two items. Why is that?

18. I can only conclude the following: The President of the United States, Obama, won't release his Occidental College in California records and his original Social Security application form---the one he supposedly filled out in the 1970s as a teenager in Hawaii---because he is trying to hide something that would be damaging to his political career.

Aye, there's the rub. A non-binding opinion (which I admit I have not read).

While I share the opinion that an NBC ought to have two citizen parents (as do a number of political thinkers over the last 200 years) as a practical matter the legal support for this view doesn't seem to be there.

Add in historical examples of a previous President having a citizen mother and non-citizen father at birth and Presidential candidates with similar pedigrees and there just doesn't seem to be a strong justification for the 2-parent argument.

And from what I have read in American civics textbooks from the 1800’s and early 1900’s the concern was birth in the US. Though yes, this doesn't apply to Romney the elder it does apply to BHO.

Good post, IMO. I think that probably because it supports my own personal wacko conspiracy theory that the Birther Movement originated in the White House ... or at least they were mighty quick to jump in!

Yo! Look ova heah! Not ova theah!

BTW, Barry's LFBC "copy" is not really really a 100% fake. They obviously made it up from selected bits and pieces of stuff allegedly "on file with the HIDOH." Pretty fair job. Of course, it would never get past the DMV if it were a car title; but all things considered and given a compliant Republican Party and MSM, not all that bad a job of DIY photo-shoppe jiggery-pokery.

Team Obama is doing some fancy skating on this Columbia dealie.

Columbia has a School of General Studies.
To be admitted as a General Studies student one must absolutely meet two stringent requirements:
(A) Have a pulse.
(B) Have a check for the exhorbitant fees of whatever course you wish to take.

If you hang around long enough, and the University agrees to give credit for course work done elsewhere or "life experience," one can actually receive a genuine Columbia College degree; without of course, ever actually having been matriculated at Columbia College

Cool, no? Lots of Universities have this interesting "General Studies" opportunity.

Of course, a genuine Columbia COLLEGE student would rather be caught with a dead zebra in his room than be seen pal-ing around with a General Studies student. Which is probably why "nobody" at Columbia knew the guy. (That's because Columbia College is a genuine Ivy League school, to which a dumkopf like Barry, with his lackluster [if any} SATs, low HS Grades, and likely undistinguished history at deare olde Occidental, would never have been admitted, even with an interestingly slight case of pigmentation.)

Release his college records? Not bloody likely.

I think the thing Limbaugh is going through is a demonstration of the power of big media and the Dems...it is a warning...if any of you guys go after Obama’s many past issues we will destroy you.

Breitbart is dead and Rush is being hounded...a coincidence??? Maybe...maybe not.
