'Why won't you release your birth certificate?'

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------- CHANGING OF THE GUARD 'Why won't you release your birth certificate?' New forum allows you to ask President Obama your question

President Barack Obama

The newest forum at WND has been launched to allow you to ask President Barack Obama the important questions reporters at news conferences never seem to ask.

And the first question submitted concerns an issue that has been the subject of multiple lawsuits and U.S. Supreme Court conferences over recent weeks.

"Now, that you have take[n] the oath of president of the United States, where you promise to uphold the laws of the Constitution, why won't you release your Birth Certificate, not a certificate of live birth, your passport or your records from the schools and colleges you attended, to prove once and for all that you are a natural born citizen and qualified to have taken the oath?"

(Story continues below)

The question was submitted only hours before Obama took the oath of office from Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts to become the 44th president of the United States.

The forum is the only place on the Internet where readers can submit questions that could be posed in daily White House news briefings. ....

A better question would be: where were you born?

Still doesn’t mean we can’t ask why? If there is nothing to hide, why not release it?

Hussein Osam....bama was obviously not born in the US or he would have produced a birth certificate. History wil reveal where he was born and the SCOTUS will look very foolish!! As not a legitimate POTUS his legislation can be overturned, hopefully! Hussien is a pagan liar!

The answer is painfully obvious: becuase there IS something to hide.

And Mark Levin (TGO) seemed to finally weigh in on this yesterday, when he said at the top of the show “are we challenging his legitimacy to be POTUS? He won the election, he is the POTUS, it is a straw man argument”.

Unfortunately, and with all due respect to Levin, I must disagree with that, and would prefer that it all be laid out in a court of law, and not through phantom internet postings, innuendo and hearsay.

He can claim a lot of things, but since he has never come clean on his past or released ANY of his records, there will always be a significant portion of the electorate that does not believe he is a NBC.

And if he turns out to be as nefarious and anti-American as many believe he is, charges of treason will be in play.

I fully concur. The Constitution DOES NOT say that if you are ineligible to serve as president due to the failure to meet the requirement of age and being born a US citizen but you get elected anyway, it's ok, dude, we'll just forget all that minimum eligibility requirements mumbo-jumbo. What it does say is that to be eligible to serve as president, you must have been born in the United States and reached your 35th birthday.

I don't get why Levin, Hannity, Boortz and Limbaugh are all ducking this issue and pretending that it doesn't exist. There is no substantive proof either way of where he was born. His stonewalling the issue, sleights of hand by having his records sealed, and turning the whole thing over to his lawyers to handle don't pass the smell test. If this issue is finally proven one way or the other and it turns into a major constitutional crisis, all of these talking radio heads will have major egg on their faces (not to mention their loss of credibility) by joining with the DBM and refusing to touch this story. If they have inside info, spill it!! If not, raise and push the issue.

Most likely, yes.

It occurs to me that MAYBE is up to something more clever than we think:

For the sake of argument, let's assume this is NOT about his BC and eligibility to hold the office of POTUS; this is no more than 0 testing the mettle of the American People, Congress, and the Judiciary. Why not just turn it over” Because no one has ordered/forced him to do so. He's playing “Oh ya? MAKE ME.” And no one is making him.

The man is an arrogant bully. He smiles pretty and reads well, but he is a jackal through and through. If he gets away with this—not showing it—he'll have all the answers he needs as to exactly what he can do, and you can rest assured he will do exactly what he can.

I think that it is about time that we get our perspective straight. That Obama may not be eligible to be POTUS is one thing, but we must never forget those that enabled all this discord.

Obama is but one person, but those that supported, promoted and protected him against this investigation are numerous and guilty of deriliction of duty. NOT ONE member of Congress, that I know of, officially registered a request for disclosure of Obama’s identification. As far as we know, he could be a foreigner. Without Congress’ silence things might have turned out differently.

Congress acted cowardly and let the American people down.

Well first, you will have to find a Constitutional, Legislative or Judicial definition of NBC.

You will then have to prove that Obama was not born in Hawaii and that children born to Americans overseas to an American in not a NBC.

You will then need to replace the current nine members of the SCOTUS since time after time they have refused to hear cases against Obama and his NBC status.

The Certificate-gate truthers are a persistent bunch. Sooner or later they’ll be like that guy you see in the city, ringing the bell and screaming “THE END IS NEAR!”, and will just become a part of the background noise.

Levin has proven to be a huge disappointment on this issue. Like a previous poster stated, there is no conclusive proof where obama was born. For a self proclaimed US constitution expert, Levin should be all over this. Levin isn’t near the tough guy he portrays himself to be.

It will take a foreign agent to get the BC out and I hope one is working on it now.

Yep, I’ve previously addressed what you said and came to the same conclusion: that if he is doing this as a power play, he is a genuine jackal, and not worthy of our trust, nor of putting any faith in him to do the right thing in our best interests.

It is either a character flaw or a disqualification from legally taking office.

Why? Unlike apparently Obama, I am eligible to be president, better qualified through achievement than Barak, ethically better qualified and although not really smart, I believe I am smarter than him. However, I didn’t have the speaking ability, the Chicago Political Machine contacts, the love of the ignorant media nor the skin color to get things I didn’t work for. So, what is your point?

Personally, I am fighting for states to put in requirements to prove eligibilty through certified long form Birth Certificates before 2012. Doesn't matter whether it will force Obama's hand or prevent questions like this in the future. Apparently, we need a better system than someone just swearing they are eligible. Some people are just too dang Audacious to be willing to try and HOPE to get away with anything.

There were specific laws on the books regarding citizenship that were in effect at that time. They would apply.

that is the law part of the equation.

Then there is the facts part. And in order for a record of the facts to be made, discovery must be exchanged, which the courts have failed to order. Berg requested the discovery in his lawsuit, and was on the correct path with that, but didnt have the STANDING to pursue the matter.

And as a result of all this, the biggest scam in American history has been perpetuated on US.

I remember an elementary school teacher once told me (and they were all liberals 45 years ago too) if you witness a crime and you don’t report it, you become a part of that crime. So now the SCROTUM (Supreme Court Receives Obama Triumphantly Under Media fear) wants the whole country to participate in a criminal symbolic farce.

Who (singular) has the most to gain if proof is offered that Obama was not eligible to run? The Speaker of the House. Biden would not be the president, some say. Pelosi would be the president.

Things could really get interesting -- if Pelosi has the proof, if there is proof, she just needs some way to get it to "birthers" and not be connected.

If there is proof and someone has it (you can foreign intel has it) Obama can be blackmailed, the first black mail president.

Would anyone born in Hawaii on 8/4/1961 be willing to come forth and publish their COLB?

If they show their Hawaiin COLB, it will have a File Number on the upper right hand corner that is consecutively numbered.

If enough people do this, we can narrow the search down and it will be harder for fraud to occur when he finally is forced to produce his vault COLB.

Wouldn't it be much easier to prove he was born in Hawaii if the accusation is he wasn't? All it would take is a (cough) valid birth certificate. Or some other kind of easy to get proof such as resident college tuition transcripts.

Are you stupid, or just playing stupid?

Sometimes principle is more important than results.

As long as I object to someone being president that isn’t qualified to be president under constitutional requirements, then I will object to someone like you that says my objections are only valid if my objections result in a “win” for “our” side.

Well, tell ya what...My side is apparently NOT your side. My side is that of principle. Your side is obviously not.

Dear World Net Daily,
Because I don’t have to is the answer to your question.

I trumped you folks politically when I posted my state of Hawaii issued Certificstion of Live Birth to my “Fight the Smears” web site back in June. That is the only proof of birth that I will EVER need to show to anyone in order to run for President in all 50 states and the District of Columbia.
My state of Hawaii issued COLB documents that I was born at 7:24 p.m. on August 4, 1961 in the City of Honolulu, in the County of Honolulu, on the Island of Oahu, in the state of Hawaii, in the United States of America and that my birth was registered with the state of Hawaii on August 7, 1961.
There is no law, there is no court ruling and there is no precedent for me presenting any other proof of birth than what I have already presented to get on the ballot and take the Oath of Office.
If any one thinks that my COLB is fraudulent or a forgery, let them file criminal charges against me though the Republican Attorney General of the state of Hawaii and he can aubpoena my vault copy long form Certification of Live Birth from the State of Hawaii Health Department and let the experts have at it. No one has done that, gee I wonder why not?
Until then, you good folks can keep on trying as I continue to defeat you in case after case in every state, federal and appellate court that has looked at this issue including five times now in the US Supreme Court.
Your truly,
Barack Hussein Obama
44th President of the United States

The fact that he (Levin) called this a “straw man argument” is interesting but troubling.

If Odumbo came clean about his past, there would be no argument at all.
