Three Unanswered Questions for Obama

Three Unanswered Questions for Obama
November 16, 2008
Obama's Paternal Granmother Sarah Obama says she was in the
 delivery room when he was born in Kenya.
 
Electors are sworn to uphold it with their vote on December 15th in the Electoral College. But they must first know for sure that the candidates meet the Constitutional requirements for the office of President beginning with being a natural born citizen.
That's what Philip J. Berg has asked the United States Supreme Court to verify. The Supreme Court has asked for a response from Senator Barack Obama along with the Democratic National Committee and Federal Elections Commission. And they have until December 1st to respond. Other cases have been fi led asking for the same thing.

Not extreme. Not fringe. Just Constitutional.

Obama says he's qualified. But, Berg, multiple legal suits and a growing number of American citizens are saying: "Prove it." A basic, vital and Constitutional request. Why won't Obama answer such a simple and essential request?

Exhibit A:
The Grandmother's tape Barack Obama's own grandmother said he was born in Kenya. While politicians

are known for it, grandmothers seldom lie. It's recorded on tape:
"I was in the delivery room in [Mombosa,] Kenya, when he was born Aug. 4, 1961." - Sarah Obama, Obama's paternal grandmother.

Exhibit B:
No Original Birth Certificate
Experts have called the Certification of Live Birth posted online a forgery. Berg reported "It's clearly been altered," which invalidates it, according to the document itself. Add to this the Hawaiian law at the time which allowed people to register for this non-hospital short form certificate (without a doctor's signature) up to one year from the date of the child's birth.

Exhibit C: Indonesian citizenship Only Indonesian citizens could attend Indonesian schools at the time Barack Obama attended the Indonesian school where he was registered as Barry Soetoro. His citizenship was listed as Indonesian, his religion as Islam, and his father as Lolo Soetoro, M.A. There was also no dual citizenship at the time. If he was adopted by his Indonesian stepfather, he would have forfeited any U.S. citizenship he may have had, just as when a child is adopted in America, he or she becomes an American.

Exhibit D:U.S. Law
In addition, according to U.S. law pertaining to births abroad, from "Dec. 24, 1952, to Nov. 13, 1986,"  in order to register the child's birth as a U.S. natural-born citizen at the time of Obama's birth, he or she must be: 1. Born to two U.S. citizen parents;

OR 2. If only one parent was a U.S. citizen at the time of the birth, that parent must have resided in the United States for at least 10 years, at least five of which must be after the age of 14.

Since Barack Obama's father was not a U.S. citizen and Obama's mother was only 18 at the time of his birth, she failed to meet the legal requirements of U.S. residency for at least five years after the age of 14.

Either the Constitution matters or it doesn't. If we are willing to ignore the constitutional requirements for the highest office in our land, what else are we willing to forgo? That part about free speech?

KEYWORDS: bc; bho2008; birth; birthcertificate; certifigate; kenya; obama
The big question that comes to mind is what does Obama have to hide? There is something he is hiding in not releasing his education and original birth certificate. I used to think this story would go away but it appears that it has some legs and the Obama camp are already behaving like guilty parties afraid of being found out. This may be the biggest con ever foisted on America. It brings to mind the movie Matchstick Men. Is Obama a Matchstick man? That is a the question everyone should be asking. It is a legitimate question and now is the best time to have this fully vetted. It he was natural born then he should prove it and put this conspiracy to rest.

Conspiracy????? If it’s false, prove it. People should have to prove their citizenship before they even run for the office of the President or Congress

Either the Constitution matters or it doesn’t. If we are willing to ignore the constitutional requirements for the highest office in our land, what else are we willing to forgo?

That is going to be his defense claim. I say that, after jan 20, 2009, he is going to say that his election, by a majority of the voters, makes our constitution a document that is null and void. He will claim that he was not born in the states and since one part of the constitution is null and void, then all part are, thus he was tell us that elections are no longer needed, and that he will rule the nation to his death.
I know that this is way out there, but could we have written the script of how this election played out?

If it is shown that he is ineligible for the office, please give me a weeks a notice so I can stock some ammo. You know damn well every city in America will be burnt the ground and every store looted. It will make 1992 riots look like child's play, and I don't want to be Reginald Denny.

Another Freeper said something accurate, to the effect that revealing it may cause riots, and we will recover; not revealing it will destroy our Constitution, and we will not recover.

That said, I still don’t think there’d be riots. I think there are a lot of blacks who would feel very used and exploited, both by Barry and by the Dems, however, and it might put an end once and for all to the Dem control of blacks. American born blacks, for one thing, resent grandstanding Africans and foreign-born blacks who swoop in and take what the Americans worked for, and I think Barry Whatever-His-Name-Is would fall into this category.

This may be the biggest con ever foisted on America”

When NObama’s lies come out, and he cannot prove his eligibility for the Presidency, the blacks will have no one to blame except NObama himself.

He and he alone knew this from the beginning.

I think Howard Dean and a couple of other DNC leaders also knew, but NObama knew for the longest time—all his life.

The blacks and the Democraps have been snookered- NObama is a HOAX.

This may very well be the reason they don’t do anything about it. They may show they don’t have any spines. SPOTUS needs to stand up and do what’s right. If they do, the American people will back them. If they don’t, the rest will go down the tube.

The big question is why folks are still consumed with this issue. n It is a moot point, since even if it were somehow proven that Obama was born in Kenya, he will not be removed from office. Since Congress would have to remove him from office (and the Democrats are in the majority), it will not happen. Furthermore, the Supreme Court would refuse to even hear such a case, even if it could somehow be proven his citizenship is questionable. The time to end this line of inquiry is past since it is a monumental waste of time.

I see the family resemblance ....

Of course there could always be a doctor or nurse or someone from a hospital in Hawaii who could contradict lying africa granny

someone would remember being there, or hearing about a father mother uncle or sister on staff who was there the night a future president of the usa was born, in such a small place as 1961 Hawaii

someone?

Either the Constitution matters or it doesn’t.

Ditto that. As "the one" sworn to uphold the Constitution, the President is required to abide by it and not render it meaningless. Despite a few nay-sayers and Obama-bots, I think we all agree this is important. Obama is either hiding something, or he is a pathetic leader in that he has not addressed this and put the issue to bed a long time ago.

C'mon, Obama, you won the vote -- now show some leadership and make your documents PUBLIC like the rest of us! Do you want us to accept you or not!?!

yes, once someone has intentionally bypassed the US Constitution to get elected as US president, it is a done deal ... nothing to see or do here .... move on

after all, he’s going to swear in front of the nation and world to protect and defend that US constitution he just blew off....right?

So the rest of the Constitution, he’ll protect and defend? Right? Just not the parts that get in his personal path to power?

And when the KGB or the Chinese or the Iranian mullahs let him know backchannel that they have proof about his origins that they can unveil, then he’ll come clean and accept personal destruction for his deception, right? He won’ be blackmailable, right?

I disagree with you 1000%

If NObama is not constitutionally qualified to be President, then he cannot “command the Military” nor would ANY legislation that he signs be valid.

This isn’t as simple as some people think it is.

"That is going to be his defense claim. I say that, after jan 20, 2009, he is going to say that his election, by a majority of the voters, makes our constitution a document that is null and void. "

Committing fraud does not a Constitutional Amendment make...and failing to properly qualify for the office is an impeachable offense and his election should be declared as null and void by the Supreme Court.

There are too many protections in the Constitution for a courtroom technicality to declare it null and void. The only thing that will declare the Constitution null and void is a complete attempt at a coup...but that will not be easy in an armed population.

I heard about the ridiculous application questionnaire. It seemed too absurd to be true, but ... after this display of Obama’s leadership ability, “absurd” has become the new standard. “Change” doesn’t begin to describe it.

Were there false entries on Barry's Illinois Bar Association application? Did he declare that he used the names Barry Dunham, Barry Soetoro, Barry Obama, Barack Hussein Obama, Barack Hussein Obama, Jr, etc? Did he falsify his admission of the use of illicit drugs on the application?

I really don't know how to tell you this, but, Obama will not be installed until January 20th of 2009.

I.E. He isn't in office, yet!

The time is NOW! The problem is the American public, especially the “silent majority,” have been lying in wait for too long. It is like the offensive lineman who has been holding his three-point stance so long that he forgot what the start single really is - so he just keep waiting.

If Senator Obama is found to be not eligible, then Congress would HAVE to remove him; otherwise, every elected official will be subject to massive voter backlash during the next election cycle. Remember, African-Americans make up only approximately 13% of the American populace - that leaves a whole lot of un-happy campers out there!

If it is determined before December 15th, then the electoral college could solve the issue without congressional influence.

The time is NOW!

It's worse than that. If Obama does not produce a vault certificate, he will be a target for blackmail. Somebody has the evidence.

You must be in some time warp someplace because he is not in office, even though he thinks so. Thus the time for this line of inquiry is the present -- and it is not a waste of time even though the Obamabots would like us to think so.

2. Why is this fraudulent lying politician different from all other fraudulent lying politicians?

3. Why is this thread different from all other threads?

4. [There's a fourth here somewhere.]

Wrong time of year for these questions.

They are waiting on purpose. It will now be proven he WAS foreign-born, and his popularity will be the catalyst for that requirement in the Constitution to be discarded as hopelessly outdated and unapplicable in modern times. It will be the first of many revisions to the “flawed” Constitution.

I think he is hiding that his real name is not Barak Obama Jr. I think he was born out of wedlock with no father named on the birth certificate and his name was either Barry Dunham or Barak Dunham.

I think when he was a teenager he had a falling out over this because he found out his mother grandmother and Grandfather lied to him about it and had made up a father that really wasn’t his father or wasn’t married to his father.

They tried to hide this fact from him by having his grandparents adopt him, during the process he found out that his real name wasn’t Barak Huessin Obama and to get back at them he decided that he would continue to go by the name anyway.

The birth certificate would show that we had elected an alias. When they made up his life story for the books, they didn’t realize that he would have to prove it. He either had to continue the tall tale or give up his political aspirations. Americans hate phonies. Especially those who wrote two books about his phony life.

I am not an “Obamabot,” since I did not support, nor did I vote for him, and already see signs that his administration will be a disaster. We would better spend our time doing other things to oppose the spread of tyranny, and not revisit what is obviously a dead issue.
