Where Were You Born, Obama?
Townhall.com ^ | 12/12/08 | Diana West

Posted on 12/11/2008 9:23:38 PM PST by pissant

Roger Kimball may have tagged it first: The real news out of Chicago this week wasn't Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich's arrest on cartoonishly lurid charges of corruption stemming from his alleged attempts to sell President-elect Barack Obama's now-vacant U.S. Senate seat. The real news out of Chicago this week was that President-elect Barack Obama had nothing to do with it.

And I mean nothing to do with any of it. There was an almost comical aspect to the spectacle of journalists across the mainstream media (MSM) suddenly, as if on command, assuming pretzel positions in a contortionist's effort not to seem at all curious, for instance, about the discrepancy between David Axelrod's recent declaration that the president-elect had discussed Senate-seat replacements with Blagojevich, and Obama's more recent declaration that he had done no such thing.

The MSM instantly agreed: Obama had nothing to do with it. Such a message took Obama out of the story even before the story itself was clear.

This mantra, this strategy should be familiar by now. Whether it is Jeremiah "G -- d -- - America" Wright, William "We didn't do enough" Ayers, or now, Rod "F -- - him" Blagojevich, Obama is never a player, never even a responsible presence in controversies involving associates past and present. In the media-filtered version of events, he's just not even there. But in no story is what we may one day come to think of as Obama's invisible man-hood more obvious than in the still-roiling controversy over Obama's birth certificate.

That’s all they ever do is lie. Of course, Obambi had something to do with it.

Find us a leader.

In the MSM’s no-Obama version of events, though, such efforts and interest are mocked as the freakiest kind of lunacy”

Lets’ not forget the disgraceful MSM's total silence on the John Edwards affair/baby with that tart, and the MSM ridicule of anyone who dared suggest that John Edwards was indeed cheating on his wife. It was only after Edwards had dropped out of the primaries, and Obambi had safely won the primaries, that the MSM finally published the truth about Edwards.
Exactly the same thing is happening with the Obama Birth Certificate right now.

“The real news out of Chicago this week was that President-elect Barack Obama had nothing to do with it.”

And only the tiniest amount of common sense is required to conclude that these suck-up ‘journalists’ stumbling over each other to declare first and loudest that Obama had nothing to do with it, well, they could not possibly know whether he had anything to do with it not. No one could know but Obama and maybe a very few of his closest advisers.

And does anyone really think Obama would admit to what could well be crimes, and even impeachable offenses?

In a sane world, these suck-offs posing as journalists would be laughed and hounded out of their jobs for even pretending they could know what Obama did or did not do at this stage of this Chicago political cirucus.

Laura Ingraham had the greatest remark about obama on O'Reilly tonight, when she said, "This cool-cat routine is wearing mighty thin...".

That one phrase pegged "The Kenyan" good, because that is all this empty suit is about, acting like "Joe Cool". He is so wound up in the celebrity of the job, that he will never get around to actually doing the work.

He is all about profiling and looking "important"...a.k.a. and empty suit.

If he was as smart at the MSM and the left thinks he is, he would have produced proof of a valid birth certificate by now.

This post has several comments about the official name of the next President of the United States.

The first image is a copy of the Certification of Live Birth document which has been repeatedly “published” on a number of web sites as the Official version of Obama’s birth record from the State of Hawaii.

According to this document his full proper name is Barack Hussein Obama II. Also note that there is no actual place of birth (hospital, plantation, farm, pine apple field, log cabin, manger, etc.) shown in this document.

I am sure that Chief Justice Roberts, before he swears in Obama as President of the United States, will personally review an actual vaulted copy of the original long form of Obama's birthing records which the State of Hawaii, Director of Health, Chiyome Fukino, MD has publicly announced that she has on file.

It would be shame for the Chief Justice Roberts of the United States to go down in history as the first Chief Justice to incorrectly swear in a new President of the United States by not using his full and correct name even if he was not born in this country.

As a point of comparison please note the second image in this post. This is what a genuine Copy of a Certificate of Live Birth (some data redacted) issued by the State of Hawaii, Department of Health in July 1962 for the Birth of a male child in February 1962 on the Island of Oahu looks like. Note in this document the State of Hawaii, Department of Health official embossed seal and official signatures of the then Director of Health, Leo Bernstein, MD and the then Registrar General, Charles G. Bennett. The State of Hawaii officials' signatures and the date the document was issued are underlined in red. This document is a photographic copied image. It is a black background document with white letters which clearly were created by a 1962 typewriter.

A document similar to this is what most of the lawsuits about the record of birth of Obama are asking to be released for public viewing. Of course the United State Supreme Court, all nine members, is refusing to see and review a similar document for Barack Hussein Obama II.

Please note boxes #6a through 6d of the document shown in the second image. There is key data to be found in #6 boxes and well as the supporting data as in the #7 boxes in the first image. Box #11 (New Hampshire) shows the birth place of the mother. Box #16 (Pennsylvania) shows the birth place of the father. (In the modern secular world this person would also most likely be known as just the sperm donor.)

Also please note that in the first image no Department of Health official embossed seal, which is raised and embedded in the paper, is to be found on this (official) document.

Judge Robert, please note.

An excellent piece. Right on the mark.

She does a great job of skewering David Horowitz and his fellow-traveling ilk who think it kooky to make a reasonable request for actual proof that Barack Obama is constitutionally qualified to serve as President of the United States.

He was born in Kenya, according to his Grandma Sarah. So, as long as there is no “Ignauguration” (farce) in January, I’m cool with that. Cool as long as it’s sorted-out between now and then.

You were saying — “Cough it up, you commie mole.”

While this may be well-said, it’s not the current state of affairs..., unfortunately...

Bush and the Bush Administration wants nothing to do with this issue, Vice President Cheney wants nothing to do or say about this issue, McCain and his previous campaign wants nothing to do with this issue, Governor Palin wants nothing to do with this issue and is looking forward to working with Obama, the Republican Party wants nothing to do with this issue, even Rush Limbaugh wants nothing to do with this issue, many other conservative websites want nothing to do with this issue, many here on Free Republic want nothing to do with this issue — and (of course) — the Democrats want nothing to do with this issue, along with Obama wanting nothing to do with this issue. Even the FBI wants nothing to do with it...

That is our current state of affairs...

Your comment describes Obama's life, from president of the Harvard Law Review, through the Illinois Senate and on to the US Senate.

Obama has been bamboozling, hoodwinking, and doing the okie dokie all the way to the White House and he's never done the work. His footprints are on the backs of others. It's the story of his life.

Fixation to intangibles (i.e., ideas, ideologies, etc.). The obsessive factor is also found in symptoms pertaining to obsessive compulsive disorder.

Masturbation refers to stimulation, of one’s own self, often to the point of rapture.

Why did his parents call him Barack Hussein Obama II?

Assuming his father was Barack Hussein Obama then he should be Barack Hussein Obama Jr. Now if his grandfather or uncle had the same name and his father didn't he'd be II, not Junior.

These people make up rules as they go along. You'd think they might go to the library and find out how to do things correctly.

Imagine being Chief of Protocol at the White House. It's going to be a scream.

How do we know what his parents called him. We don't.

Box #18a of the vaulted long form of the State of Hawaii Official Certificate of Live Birth contents the "Signature of Parent or Other Informant". In other words, the signature of person who has naming rights of the new born. The citizens of the United States of America have been denied access to the key information as to what the name of the next President of the United States will be known as.

Maybe Justice Roberts will have the wisdom to look for that data. /s/ off

You said — “Yep. But remember, the patriots who pledged their life and liberty to toss off King George were even a minority of the population.”

They dynamics of the situation in the 1770s was far different than what they are now. For one thing, England didn’t necessarily have maximum ability to get all the troops over here that they might have, otherwise.

Secondly, the Patriots were fighting on their own land and England was viewed as a controlling entity and government far away.

Thirdly, the “military hardware” was far different then and it wasn’t as “mismatched” as it would be today.

So, in this case, we do have the mechanisms, politically, to enact changes that the population wants. Now, if we end up being in a “minority” position, politically — it’s still a viable result, since it is being done through the mechanisms of exercising our political rights.

The military hardware right now is *vastly mismatched* for any kind of armed revolution that anyone would propose against our government. That would never work. An armed revolution simply is not in the cards — against our own government. That would never work.

There is only one solution and that is to work politically within the system...

Well we don’t know for sure what his parents named him at birth but the Certificate of Live Birth lists him as Barack Hussein Obama II. Since Barack Hussein Obama was the name of his father then Obama should be Junior, not II. If his grandfather were named Barack Hussein Obama and his father had a different name then he could be II.

The long-time employees of the protocol office of the White House are going to be tearing their hair out. Somebody should give these vulgarians an etiquette book so they learn about Jr. versus II, what fork to use at dinner and why one doesn’t dress a child in a black dress.

Getting their kneepads fitted.

As sort of an extended ping for this thread, here is my crackpot theory of the birth announcement in the Hawaiian newspaper that the world regards as proof that Obama was born in Hawaii:

Obama's mother gives birth in Kenya. She phones her mother in Hawaii after the delivery. (Daughters do occasionally telephone their mothers in this circumstance.) Madelyn Dunham proudly places the birth notice in the local paper.

I know, I know, it could never happen.

In fact, the fraudulent freaky squirrel has used several different names yet when swearing to the information he offered to the IL Bar, he lied outright and swore to the lie ... that he had used no other name but Barack Hussein Obama. He will lie about anything and perhaps everything. He is a wicked man, as evidenced by his obsessive protection ofr murdering newly born alive infants in IL.

Here is Gov (commerce secretary elect)Bill Richardson saying in Spanish that Obama is an "immigrant." (So he understands understands "immigrant" issues.)The context suggests that by "immigrant" bill richardson means "illegal immigrant"



Here in plain English is the Kenyan Ambassador saying that Obama is born in Kenya.
