Posted on 10/20/2008 6:11:16 PM PDT by T Ruth
The leader of the national anti-Obama movement, legendary Chicago Internet columnist and Obama author Andy Martin, will hold a Honolulu news conference today, October 20, 2008 to announce he has asked the Hawaii Supreme Court to entertain an emergency writ expediting the release of Senator Barack Obamas secret birth records.
A copy of the Petition will be posted on Martins blogs later today after it is docketed by the Supreme Court. The Hawaii Supreme Court petition supplements and expands on a lawsuit filed Friday, October 18th in the Circuit Court of Hawaii.
Martin is due back in New York on Friday, October 24th for network television interviews.
Oh well, it’s a special character called an “okina”, which is usually just substituted in with an apostrophe.
Most of the time, Hawai’i is sufficient. There’s a trend that goes back for some time to include the okina, and also long marks (macrons) over long vowels. Since the Hawai’ian language only has twelve letters, a e h i k l m n o p u w, it’s more easily read by adding the okina in, and marking long vowels. (Plus, w has two sounds...) But it doesn’t matter, as Obama is about Hawai’ian as a Hawaiian Punch!
Given the extreme strength of the Democratic Party in Hawaii, I doubt this is a campaign stop. He either has a sick grandmother or he needs to be there for some other reason.
I thought his grandmother lived in Montana or somewhere in the Great Plains?
The easy fix is to for the agency that issues passports to show us the copy of the birth certificate that they felt was legit to allow him to get his passport...is that so difficult? Seriously I could produce mine in 20 mins (I think it’s in my little home safe) and if not could go to WI and get in a week or less...
Makes you wonder.
I do not generally believe in coincidences of large proportions.
Maybe he has to tell her something...not ask something?
Done, I emailed him and wished him good luck. You know the Obamination Media Hacks will be all over Andy by tomorrow morning. We will know Andy’s shoe size, color of tile in the bathroom, how many stamps on his passport, and who was his first girlfriend. But the Media will NEVER ask BO for his birth certificate
Oh, man... You've just destroyed one of my most cherished childhood beliefs! When did Hawaiian Punch get “de-certified?”
Always...its a gluttal stop, not a true apostrophe.
Well, Obama is headed to Hawaii, so this guy will get his payola.
Who says he has one?
Diplomatic are different. Government issued based on position?
Indonesian Passport was used when he traveled as a young man?
Anything but a naturalized citizenship would be very hard to get for him.
Obama is taking two days off from the campaign in the last 15 days to visit his sick grandmother in Hawaii. A grandmother whom he rarely visits.
There are law suits filed now in four states claiming that Obama does not meet the constitutional test for office (natural born citizen) because he was actually born in Kenya, as his Kenyan grandmother has proclaimed, when she said she attended his birth.
His mother was not old enough and did not live in the US long enough before his birth for him to have been a citizen, if he was born outside the US.
Obamas visit coincides with that of an investigative reporter who is in Hawaii to ask the Hawaii supreme court for an emergency order opening the states birth records for Obama.
Obama has refused to ask Hawaii to open the records, and is fighting the law suits which have been filed, in hopes of delaying the facts until after the election. The birth certificate posted on their web site two months ago, was shown to be a false copy of the actual record, by the omission of the pro-Obama dailykos.com folks who posted it.
Now I know most of your list will proclaim this to be a right-wing wacko theory, but it would be interesting to see what they say about the timing of the visit.
Secondly, someone might comment on why an innocent person would act this way.
Lastly, dont we have the right to know if the candidates meet the basic requirements as spelled out in the constitution?
LOL! The FR spell checker does not recognize the word Obama. LOL!
what standing does this guy have?
Maybe he’ll have her sign an affidavit on her death bed that she was present at his birth.....then die so it can’t be contested.
So this was the answer.... or your assumption?
If you are running for president, and only ONE person requested proof that you are a natural born citizen, I think that there should be NO problem to accommodate them. It is not an unreasonable request.
And we have O rushing to Hawaii to visit his grandmother.
Michelle remains behind to campaign for him.
Something smells bad.
“....Who or what department is in charge of verifying a candidate’s credentials. ....”
There is NO such federal department or requirement that candidates submit documents. Maybe there should be!
But prior to this election cycle its never been an issue.
We have never had such an “unknown” run before and so many “voters” who are fine with that !
exactly what I said on another thread
he does not go when she is admitted to hospital but goes two days after she is released from hospital
so she can’t be that sick can she other wise they would have kept her in
during this time the supreme court thing is going on
why did he not go when she was admitted to hospital if he is so compasionate and why go two days later
The one he had before he was a politician...i’m just sayin that’s all it should take to put any question to rest...I don’t know where I stand on it, but it is a bit odd there hasn’t been a new conference to say hey peeps, here it is, it’s real so drop the nonsense...that’s what I’d do...but then again I am a pretty bad liar so I’d be sweating bullets if I know I was lying...
reminds me of someone needing to " visit Mrs. Jones"... hmmmmmm definitely strange here!
Either Obambi produces an actual valid birth certificate now, or his candidacy is disqualified by SCOTUS.
IT’S BRITNEY, B*TCH!
If he visited her in the hospital, any access to her apartment would have been suspect. I bet he is after documents that he is afraid will get out when she dies. He’s after paper.
okay. you just wait right there and i'm sure the networks will all crowd around.
it would be good if, were there a sense that this is a real issue, we'd get some non-maroon to pursue it . . .
sounds right to me.
He is expected to come out with Part I of an expose on Obama today as well (Part I supposedly having to do with Obama & Islam). Looks like he is quite busy down there in Hawai’i right now. I’d be patient, personally.
Seeing as Obama is going to be “off the campaign” trail to visit his sick Grandmother for the next two days - it makes me seriously wonder...
Is he REALLY visiting his grandmother - or is he going to Hawai’i to attempt to do a little damage control.
Now, that appears plausible.
she had surgery to correct her typical whiteness.
The Press should be with him on this trip. This will be interesting indeed.
You’re right neither party would stand for it !
Robert Gibbs told reporters Monday that Obama's grandmother, Madelyn Payne Dunham, who helped raise him, was released from the hospital late last week. But he said her health had deteriorated "to the point where her situation is very serious."
BINGO!! DING DING DING DING DING We have a WINNER!
I don't care if he is an attention whore, I can't believe Obama would leave the campaign to visit his grandmother at the same time this guy is likely to get access to his HI birth certificate, if it exists.
They didn’t have birth certificates in the 13th century. Poor guy’s been living in a well for 800 years, cut him a little slack.
IF Obama is comfortably ahead in Wisconsin and Iowa why is he spending time there? HMMMMM
How many percentage points is the sympathy vote?
As for the BC, I think it contains information that Obama does not want out like the fact that his father called himself Arab rather than Negro as is common for LUO tribesmen.
I also want to know when did the article "a" start being used before a noun beginning with a vowel? AND when did "than" start being replaced by "then"?
I wonder if there is someone in congress, etc, who could ask for a emergency stay of this election before the SCOTUS?? President Bush should do something.!!! I know I am talking as.. a uneducated citizen... but I do KNOW right from wrong and this is WRONG!!!!
I’ve never known a hospital to release anyone if it is so serious and also why wait for three days to go
wouldn’t he had gone when she was admittedn also
course the media can’t ask questions like thay are supposed to
I got a call that my dad was dying , I was in America and he was in England
I took the next flight and I don’t have a private jet either
sadly I was too late
The same day Peking became Bejing, Burma became Myramar, Moslem became Muslim and Barry became Barack.
What an amazing coincidence.
WHO is responsible for ensuring that the Constitutional qualifications for office are met? Who makes sure that the candidates are of age, natural born citizens, etc??
Age and Citizenship requirements - US Constitution, Article II, Section 1
No person except a natural born citizen, or a citizen of the United States, at the time of the adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the office of President; neither shall any person be eligible to that office who shall not have attained to the age of thirty-five years, and been fourteen years a resident within the United States.
Term limit amendment - US Constitution, Amendment XXII, Section 1 ratified February 27, 1951
No person shall be elected to the office of the President more than twice, and no person who has held the office of President, or acted as President, for more than two years of a term to which some other person was elected President shall be elected to the office of the President more than once.
DAMN good point. VERY interesting.
