Posted on 07/28/2009 6:43:16 AM PDT by real_patriotic_american
Well, surely this will settle finally once and for all that Barack Hussein Obama was really, actually and factually born in the United States and, therefore, is fully qualified according to the U.S. Constitution to be the president that he has been since he took the oath of office on Jan. 20 and a second time shortly after, just to make sure.
Not! In yet another quite possibly futile attempt to silence the zombie birther controversy that won't die,

How did the Obama kid and his late mother ever get his U.S. passport without an actual certified birth certificate like everyone else has to produce? So they could travel to and live in Indonesia all those years ago? What about the report that some African relative recalls Obama being born in Kenya?
Per Article 2, Section 1 of the U.S. Constitution, one must be a natural born American citizen to serve as President. Barack Obama is NOT eligible for the Presidency because he is not a natural born citizen. The law that applied during the time of Obama’s birth (in effect from December 24, 1952 to November 13, 1986) stated- “If only one parent was a U.S. citizen at the time of your birth, that parent must have resided in the United States for at least ten years, at least five of which had to be after the age of 16.” Obama’s father was a Kenyan citizen (a British Colony) and his mother just 18 at Obama’s birth...” (thus, she would have had to have been 21 in order for Obama to be eligible). John A. Bingham, primary framer, 14th Amendment, states- “Every human being born within the jurisdiction of the United States of parents not owing allegiance to any foreign sovereignty is, in the language of your Constitution itself, a natural born citizen.” Obama himself has stated that he is the son of a Kenyan- Kenya being a foreign sovereignty. Thus, Obama is not a natural born citizen even if he were actually born in Hawaii.
this man’s life is a real mess
Excerpt from attorney Orly Taitz letter to Congress:
There is plenty of evidence of Mr. Obama being born in Kenya and obtaining his Hawaiian birth certificate based on a statement of his grandparent only, who simply didnt want to deal with immigration and not based on any records from any hospitals. Extensive searches in the State of Hawaii showed no birthing records for his mother [Stanley] Ann Dunham in any hospital in Hawaii.
And he's intent on imposing that state onto the entire country.

Obama's sister was born in Indonesia and also has a COLB from Hawaii.
Did you know? Obamas half sister, born in Indonesia, has a Hawaiian Certification of Live Birth (COLB) just like Obama's?
Maya Soetoro was born to Indonesian businessman Lolo Soetoro and American cultural anthropologist Ann Dunham and is half-sister to the 44th President of the United States, Barack Hussein Obama. While living in Indonesia, she was home schooled by her mother and then attended Jakarta International School, later returningto Hawaii where she attended the private Punahou School in Honolulu, Hawaii, graduating in 1988.
Besides being the First Sister Maya has a Hawaiian Certification of Live Birth - despite be born in Jakarta Indonesia. Supposedly this certificate was used by the Daily Kos to forge an Obama version. Does anyone find it odd that Maya; undisputedly born in Indonesia, would have the same type of document as Barack Obama to forge?
Zombie birther controversy? Well, another slur to add to kook, tinfoiler, nut, (and the Coulter version) crank.
Its not going away, LA Times...because there is SOMETHING there being hidden. By too many people who can’t all keep their stories straight...(they ‘saw’ it last year; they destroyed all paper copies in 2001; what, we never destroy paper copies!). Somebody is lying. Who and why?
There are those, Bon mots, who would just say that that qualitifies Maya for the Presidency as well. Kind of a Kennedy/Clinton/Biden/nepotism thing happening.
Hey, dumbass LAT supposed reporter, ask your buddy Bozo to allow people to see his BC and the issue will be deader than a door nail!
Why are you not the least bit interested in WHY Barak is keeping his own BC hidden although supposedly there is a copy online for everyone to see!?
Makes me laugh that the left try to say well an article was in the paper and that says he was born there.
Well I am here and I have put articles in the UK papers for my family over there.
Not very hard at all to do.
but this is the left we are dealing with,. Look how much they go after Dobbs now because he brought the subject up. The left will not stand by. They are fighting this and using Dobbs as a message tom anyone else. Do not go there.
I found it interesting that the reporter went to both hospitals and both times officers were there to tell reporters to do one.
A reasonable person would have released it long ago and put this issue to rest.
regardless of the media trying to denounce anyone who brings this up and despite them saying that they have checked mroe and mroe folks are asking questions.
I never bothered about this but now I have more and mroe questions as does many people I know
This is not going away.
We need a reporter to go to Kenya and ask his own family plus show on camera the place where Kenyans say he was born
Hawaii Howard meets Baghdad Bob.
This is the marching order Obama has sent out, deny facts, just make an announcement that this is the truth and we do not have to prove it.
To all those participating in this, your names are on record as collaborators, you may have possibly ended your career by allowing a higher office to dictate your actions.
Granted its difficult to find the real truth, we have new posters here every day that ask that and if it wasn’t for freepers willing to be patient and spread the facts out it would be difficult indeed to believe anything from “birthers”.
Obama failed to qualify and is misusing the office of POTUS to maintain his charade at any expense, he cares not the result as long as its disruptive to America, create racial divides and destroys capitalism.
This is socialism at work.
The WH and Legal Team Obama has seized upon the some of the hysteria floating around to complete avoid dealing with the "Natural Born" issue.
The fact remains that BHO, Jr. is probably a citizen and probably not a "Natural Born Citizen." The question remains, too. Just what the hell is anyone supposed to do about it, when the issue appears ineligible for litigation? Anyone even remotely resembling a plaintiff is neatly mooted or found to have no standing to bring suit.
Face it. There is a hole in our Constitution in regard to this issue that is big enough to drive a Kenyan elephant through. As a matter of fact, someone just did. Standing by for the results of the next round in the "Obama vs. American Public" series.
Great tagline you have.
I think a made for TV movie is appropriate entitled ‘The Kenyan Imposter”. Wonder if Oliver Stone would be interested?
It's that simple.
All this does is tell me BHO is hiding something he can't change ......... something that will ROCK his World!
Show US the original..............if it's good than why not show it? Demand it for Security Clearance
” Plainly there is something on that long form that BO does not want made public”
Such as there isn’t one?
BTTT...b/c; the truth hurts Zer0Bambi & the Bolsheviks
We’ll start by demanding to see Obama’s original long form birth certificate.
“Zombie birther controversy? Well, another slur to add to kook, tinfoiler, nut, (and the Coulter version) crank.

There is no official statement posted on the official website of the state of Hawaii. The last statement that Fukino gave in October of 2008 IS on line. There are no details about the statement such as when it was made. There are no links to any official document. All stories on the internet are based on 1 story that “broke” late last night on 1 website by 1 reporter.
It’s a bogus story until it’s official.
I agree in more ways than one! Hey Obama, where’s your original birth certificate?
“Both parents must be U. S. citizens for the child to be a natural born citizen, so that statute does not apply.
He is not a NBC because his father was not a U. S. citizen. Obama might or might not be a U. S. citizen, but that is irrelevant to the issue of whether he is a natural born citizen of the U.S.”
From the piece in LA Times:
In yet another quite possibly futile attempt to silence the zombie birther controversy that won't die, the director of Hawaii's State Department of Health, Dr. Chiyome Fukino, has just repeated her statement from October that she has personally and with her very own official eyes seen the "original vital records" regarding Obama's birth in Honolulu's Kapiolani Maternity and Gynecological Hospital on Aug. 4, 1961.
OK, the only part of that paragraph within quotes is "vital records". However, the author certainly writes like Dr Fukino had named the hospital. Just bad writing or? (And how does the author know which hospital O was born at. It appears that not even the Obama family is certain about that.)
Here is Dr Fukino's statement as quoted by USA Today:
"I, Dr. Chiyome Fukino, director of the Hawaii State Department of Health, have seen the original vital records maintained on file by the Hawai'i State Department of Health verifying Barrack Hussein Obama was born in Hawaii and is a natural-born American citizen. I have nothing further to add to this statement or my original statement issued in October 2008 over eight months ago...."
No, no hospital mentioned.
That too. :-)
Maybe his birth certificate can be found in the living breathing US Constitution.... right below the "right to an abortion" clause.
Okay why doesn’t the Health Department just display the original birth certificate? They keep telling everybody that Obama was born in Hawaii so what’s the hold up on showing the birth certificate. That would put an end to all of the birther arguments. Something still doesn’t smell right.
You should add:
Social Security: 35+ SSNs issued in his name.
While the left, MSM and some on the righ want to paint those asking to see Obama’s long form birth certificate as crazy they fail to recognize that it was us “nuts” that uncovered and exposed that Dan Rather’s Bush National Guard papers were fakes. That is why we don’t trust what is reported unless we have an opporunity to see and inspect it for ourselves.
Dr. Taitz has mentioned it; so Lou Dobbs, Rush, a few need to veer (slightly) from the CertifiGate...and expand upon Dr. Taitz findings of the MULTIPLE Social Security numbers.
Could fraud...simple identity theft...be the reason for the double, triple top secret handling of the BC (because it leads the paper trail to the college transcripts—the period of time those ‘extra’ id numbers could have come in handy)?
Update to/from PaMom...add National Review to the list of those dissing the Birthers...but they only called us ‘misguided.’
All this smoke coming from no fire? I don’t think so.
2 things of interest from another thread.
Someone posted that Stanley would have wanted Barry to be an American Citizen. If his father might have negated this (not a US citizen), Stanley may have signed a hospital form that indicated the father was “UNKNOWN”.
After viewing a 1963 LF/BC on the same thread, the mother and father have entries for “Race”. With the mother a Caucasian and the father unknown, Barry would have been classed as a Caucasian (damaging!) in subsequent official documents (school, medical, etc.).
Finally, if the LF/BC has “unknown” for the father, his book “Dreams..” becomes a point of suspicion.
And the obviously altered Selective Service registration.
That story didn't exist until the 1 reporter from the 1 newspaper website reported it. So far *EVERY* single news story about this is the result of 1 story by 1 reporter with no official statement by Fukino anywhere to be found on any official state of Hawaii website.
“Social Security: 35+ SSNs issued in his name.”
Is there a published list of those SSNs?
... and Obama’s appears to be forged!
“Did you know? Obamas half sister, born in Indonesia, has a Hawaiian Certification of Live Birth (COLB) just like Obama’s?”
Can you link any info about that one? I’ve seen it floating around.
“You miserable freepers should understand that the birth certificate previously supplied by President Obama’s supporters may have been fake, but it was completely accurate.”

Wait until Obama gets to prison- it will make more money (lol).
“I think a made for TV movie is appropriate entitled The Kenyan Imposter. Wonder if Oliver Stone would be interested?”
That was a copy and paste from an email I got.
And probably MORE bogus when it becomes official (lol).
“Its a bogus story until its official.”
I obtained the info from Orly Taitz’ website. It was part of one of her filings.
Work & Lurk for me, so I don’t have a direct link. It’s around here (FR) in a number of places. Look for almost any pissant post.
Are you suggesting that on the one hand they are saying that the “originals” were all destroyed but on the other hand they are saying that they recenlty examined the “originals” for authenticity?
Yeah, that’s what I thought.
And no, the Long Form isn’t the end of this, it is just the beginning.
"Therefore, I as Director of Health for the State of Hawai'i, along with the Registrar of Vital Statistics who has statutory authority to oversee and maintain these type of vital records, have personally seen and verified that the Hawai'i State Department of Health has Sen. Obamas original birth certificate on record in accordance with state policies and procedures. (http://24ahead.com/hawaii-department-health-103108-press-release-about-obama-bi)
At the very minimum, the competent state official in Hawaii confirms that the original birth certificate is on record as at October 31, 2008. Yet many objected that the official did not explicitly state that Obama was born in Hawaii. Now Doctor Fukino explicitly states that Obama was born in Hawaii and that fact is recorded in the "vital records":
I, Dr. Chiyome Fukino, director of the Hawai'i State Department of Health, have seen the original vital records maintained on file by the Hawai'i State Department of Health verifying Barrack Hussein Obama was born in Hawai'i and is a natural-born American citizen. I have nothing further to add to this statement or my original statement issued in October 2008 over eight months ago...."
Now many complain that Doctor Fukino does not recite that she examined the underlying birth certificate but only some "vital records" which could mean something apart from the original long form birth certificate. Unfortunately for this quibble, Doctor Fukino explicitly refers back to her October 2008 statement. That is significant because that statement says explicitly that the original birth certificate is on record. Therefore, no reasonable reader can conclude otherwise than that the competent state official of Hawaii is affirming that the original birth certificate, which is in the file and which she has personally examined in the presence of another official, says that Barack Obama was born in Hawaii.
Folks, let's work with the facts.
Since last November, these folks have been saying they can't open the record without President Transparency's permission. Now this. Did he authorize this? If they can reveal this, they can show us the form.
As far as her allegedly violating the law of the state of Hawaii, because she did maintain the secrecy of the document, I note that she is only reciting what is on the Certification of Live Birth which states that Obama was born in Honolulu, Hawaii. Therefore I presume she felt that she was operating within the law in revealing that she saw in the document that he was born in Hawaii. As to her statement concerning natural born citizenship, that is a legal conclusion and not a revelation of the contents of a document.
The long form says that his real name is the very pedestrian “Barry Dunham” rather than the über-kewl “Barack Obama.” Not disqualifying, but it shows the world what a fraud he’s been since the day he was old enough to function under an assumed name.
