Exclusive: A Letter to Rupert Murdoch on the Obama Birth Certificate Question
John D. Hemenway, Esq.
Editors note: The following is a letter written by John D. Hemenway, Esq. that was sent to NewsCorp CEO Rupert Murdoch via certified mail.
May 14, 2009
You will likely not have retained a clear memory of me from Worcester College in the early fifties. Much time has elapsed from when we both read P.P.E. under Asa Briggs and the others. I had looked forward to cementing our friendship when the death of your father caused you simply to disappear from those at Worcester.
Much later, during several visits to my Washington, D.C. home, my moral tutor, David Mitchell, filled me in on the magnificent assistance you provided the College. Perhaps you also had something to do with the Mitchell Building erected just off Walton Street.
Everyone who shares your views is pleased at the nearly unprecedented success story you have made of your life. I was very pleased when you became an American, even if some persons attributed your motivation as calculated to expand your economic interests. Pure jealousy! You and your accomplishments have been good for us all.
From time to time, I try to keep up with interesting details concerning your news empire. From that reading, I am certain you and I have many opinions in common. I subscribe to the N.Y. Post, which one can acknowledge is tabloidish, but describes real N.Y. City life and the Posts editorial staff certainly offers solid opinions pertaining to U.S. governmental problems. Fox News also makes an outstanding contribution to public awareness of the issues confronting the country.
You may recall the vital contribution Worcesters Provost John Masterman made to the winning of WWII; he was a key figure, as I remember, in organizing the counter-espionage effort against the Nazis. I write you now concerning a problem nearly of that magnitude.
Rupert Murdoch, Chairman, N.Y. Post 1211 Avenue of the America New York, N.Y. 10036
That problem is this: the man now occupying the White House is likely Constitutionally unqualified to hold the office. As an adopted American, you will have studied the U.S. Constitution better than many Americans, and from P.P.E. studies know that the Constitution has flexible clauses and hard, literal clauses. One of the latter is the requirement of Article II, Section 1, which states: No person except a natural-born citizen shall be eligible to the Office of the President.
There are indications that Obama cannot meet that requirement. As an attorney, I facilitated a lawsuit (Hollister vs. Soetoro et al.) in the United States District Court (D.C. Circuit) demanding that Obama produce his birth certificate or satisfactory substitute evidence. There are about 20 similar lawsuits across the nation. In my case, U.S. District Court Judge Robertson (a Clinton appointee), who summarily dismissed the case, and is rumored to be seeking an Obama appointment, wrote that Obamas eligibility had been blogged, texted, twittered, and otherwise massaged by Americas vigilant citizenry. In other words, he accepted internet blogs in lieu of actual evidence.
He ordered me to show cause why I should not be sanctioned for promotion of a frivolous lawsuit. (It is significant that, although dismissed, none of the twenty odd similar legal actions have been designated by the responsible judge as frivolous.)
Other lawsuits have usually been dismissed for lack of standing including a lawsuit brought by Presidential candidate, Ambassador Alan Keyes. If anyone has standing, it is an actual Presidential contender. I provided Judge Robertson 37 pages of explanation as to why I should not be held in contempt and he decided to reprimand me instead of his threatened sanctions. That case is now under appeal.
Any rational person with even partial knowledge of the facts must know that Obama-cum-Soetoro is desperate to conceal something he does not want known. I believe he is hiding the fact that he and his campaign conspired to assert eligibility for the Presidential office to which he well may not be entitled. In other parts of the world, this would be known as a coup detat.
Yet, mainstream news services, members of officialdom, judges, including justices of the U.S. Supreme Court have all failed to demand documentation to prove or disprove Obamas qualifications to serve in the White House.
It is as if a 53% vote is a substitute for an actual determination of the legal qualifications of Obama to be President. It is also evident that consequential people in America all believe the vetting of qualifications to be a presidential candidate should have been someone elses responsibility. Revelation of this massive collapse of the fundamentals of the electoral process (ensuring candidate eligibility) at this point would make some very important people look hopelessly incompetent and inept.
Sadly, that includes your Fox News. There are reports that top management of Fox instructed its commentators to stay away from the subject a strange position for a service that deservedly won a reputation for fair and balanced reporting. I cannot believe that you would issue such an order, with your good sense. Was it Roger Ailes or someone else? When I worked with Accuracy in Media (AIM) several decades ago, news manipulation by Ailes never filled the staff with confidence. On May 1, Sean Hannity referred to Ailes as his boss!
It is also disturbing that a report circulates that a Saudi national who bought enough stock to win a seat on the board of Foxs parent company, a Saudi prince, asked you to stop Fox from referring to Muslim youth unrest as Muslim riots he boasted later at a conference in Dubai, that after a phone call to you, thirty minutes later, Fox removed the banner from the bottom of its screen, Muslim riots. Given this revelation, many FOX devotees are wondering why the eligibility issue has been ignored by your network.
This constitutional question is one of vital importance to the U.S. It is not as if we wanted to startle our contemporaries with actions calculated to stir up our contemporaries as you once did at Worcester with your bust of Lenin. Or as I did when ruffling feathers of our stuffy dean (who guarded the door of his library from allowing anyone actually to touch one of his rare books). After you left for Australia to tend to family problems, I hung a huge American flag from the windows of the Nuffield Building on the 4th of July. The deans order (conveyed to me by my scout) still rings in my ears, Take that damn thing down!
The natural-born clause in our Constitution is a rigid, not a flexible clause. In that respect, it is analogous to the banning of cruel or unusual punishments, a clause dear to the hearts of our founding fathers. They certainly heard tales from their grandfathers drawn directly from English experience of ingenious cruelties accompanying the crime of Regicide after dictator Oliver Cromwell died peacefully in his bed. The fact that the English could not devise a way to govern themselves without inviting the king back may suggest that you modify somewhat your prediction (which I read somewhere) that this will be the last British generation that will live under a monarchy! I recall the first review of my educational progress at terms end in Hall at Worcester when David Mitchell described my understanding of English history as limited to King John was a bad king!
Since you are now an American, and a good one, too, I have no doubt that you will seek to support the Constitution every way you think wise. Consider that, having won election on a campaign that promised openness and transparency, Obama now has spent close to $1 million for concealment of his birth and academic records, which are the only means to prove his eligibility. A birth certificate would cost less than $20.00 to request from the State of Hawaii.
Obama has produced no documents at all that would support his claim to eligibility to office. Is it no longer responsible to claim that the public has a right to know the truth? Moreover, even if born in Hawaii, as he claims, Obamas travel to Pakistan (when Americans reportedly were banned from travel there) in 1981 raises other, complicated issues.
Why did his supporters produce a misleading certification of live birth instead of an actual vault birth certificate? Forensic experts have testified that the Certification of Live Birth is a forgery; written on a laser printer, when such printers were not available in 1961.
This evokes shades of Richard Nixons problems with typewriters (not just once, re: Alger Hiss; but a second time, when Nixon was caught back-dating documents for the I.R.S.) It makes me proud that in his secret tapes, Nixon referred to me, saying, Fire the son-of-a-bitch, hes done this before! a reference to my testimony before the Senate against incompetent or dishonest Nixon appointees, such as Helmut Sonnenfeldt (known locally as Kissingers Kissinger) who failed confirmation as Deputy Secretary of Treasury because of my testimony before the Senate Finance Committee.
I also testified against the first career foreign service officer ever to fail confirmation in the 182 year history of the U.S. Senate: Howard Mace, who was Director of Personnel of the Department of State, who lost his appointment as Ambassador to Sierra Leone. Senate testimony may ultimately prove useful in this Obama matter, despite the composition of the Congress at this time.
Nixons firing order directly led me to study law at Howard University, the prestigious largely African-American University in Washington, D.C. Nixons denunciation of me, in fact, boosted me in the eyes of the Dean at Howard and got me to this point.
In conclusion, I can tell you this as fact. America badly needed your brilliant creation: Fox News. But if Fox News really is to be a voice for rational conservatism in the United States, it cannot ignore this vital constitutional question: We have a man occupying the White House who refuses to disclose the very documents that would legitimate his Presidency. Was it not a cover-up that undid Richard Nixon? Please instruct your personnel from Roger Ailes on down that they are encouraged (not forbidden) to report all of the news, including that pertaining to Article II, Section 1 of the U.S. Constitution.

Please provide a working link for this by hitting the abuse button. Thanks.
Too bad that ol’ Rupert was laughing as he wiped his hind quarters with it though.
“I pray earnestly to God that someone with connections in the birth record department will infiltrate the vault and leak his B.C.!!”
Well the little tin pot dictator has pissed off enough people between the CIA and the Israelis that all of his dirty laundry may get leaked at the worst possible time for him.
It will require some sources in order for it to be validated.
Hope that you can provide.
Tragic. There appears to be no rule of law in this country unless you are a little person where the law can be used to crush you.
Unfortunately, this letter will do as much good as spitting up into a waterfall. The socialists want to bring America to its knees, truth and the Constitution be damned, it won’t stop them.
Given the dating of the letter, has Mr. Hemenway received a return reply?
The coach of every team playing little league ball in this region must have available the BC's of all members on his team to confirm their eligibility to play - - - but US citizens are not permitted to see the birth certificate of the President of the country to confirm he is eligible for that office......
well said. maybe some very wealthy conservative could put up a few bucks to anyone or ‘team’ (hehe) that could manage to produce the document. sure that sounds like a chuck norris flick but I bet there are some pro. operators out there that for the right amount of coin, along with their own patriotism, just might go for a break in. feasible? I don’t know.
Maybe “It” won’t but I betcha WE do.
2CAV,from your lips to GODS ears/
Its long gone by now. Replaced with something or gone.
Rupert is no friend of the right.
Well, Mike Gallagher belittled the “birth certificate” thing but he has come around. He had the full blown birth problem aired on his show Monday. I was surprised that finally a host was brave enough to air it.
Thanks for the ping. Still hoping here that somehow, someway, we will learn the truth about what it is that Obama is desperately trying to hide. And, may the MSM rot in hell for their refusal to do their jobs with honesty and integrity.
Bill Richardson said on video which ran on youtube and was the subject of a thread here that Obama was an immigrant. He is the highest ranking American to make such a declaration.
Huh? He botched that one. Talk about self-defeating.
Thank you for this material.
Good letter, although I wish this attorney had not mentioned the travel ban to Pakistan. There seems to be credible evidence the matter was limited to a warning and did not include a ban.
I predict Fox will begin to address this issue.
Murdoch is successful in a number of ways and he is almost certainly financially secure.
At his age he has family members, his principles, his reputation and his legacy to be concerned about; the rest is peanuts.

Below are two official emails that dispute the public version of Obamas Birth and his mothers marriage to BHO Sr.

Commentary on University Emails:
For the BHO II Hawaiian Aug 4 1961 COLB to be accurate the following improbable events needed to occur:
1 month after starting classes, Stanley Ann Dunham, Baracks mom, at age 17, got pregnant by the only black African man on the entire chain of Hawaiian islands.
2 months after getting pregnant, she drops out of college.
3 months after getting pregnant, she marries BHO Sr.
10 months after her first day at the U of HI, she delivers BHO II and immediately leaves her parents, her new husband, and her home, to fly alone with a newborn 2800 miles to Seattle to start college at the U of W.
Stanley Ann Dunham does not return to Hawaii until AFTER BHO Sr left the islands for Harvard.
This is an implausible series of events made even more nefarious because Obama II in his 2 bio books never mentions his mom left Hawaii when she was married to BHO Sr, nor does he mention she was in Washington State during this time.
Baracks sister was born in Indonesia, and has a COLB from Hawaii like Obama II. She is NOT a Natural Born Citizen of the USA as required by the Constitution to become president and Obama probably isnt either.
I think the forensic electronic analysis that detected 2007 photoshop technology ( in this “1961” artifact) is far more damaging.
Did you intend to address your #27 to me?
My #26 to you thanked you for sharing John D. Hemenway’s letter.
I did not expect the material in #27 (we haven’t been talking).
Of course, the material does raise a number of issues.
I thought at one time we had a copy of the documents from O Sr.’s divorce from Ann.
FoxNews in the tank with obama? Who would have guessed? Me, for one. Oreilly makes it very evident.
What are they hiding? If there is no problem and nothing to hide, why wouldn’t they just produce the certificate???
Negative. The authorities can’t ignore this issue forever. It’s the law.
Misstatements like this are not good for our side. The Certification of Live Birth is an after the fact document, and the one in question was supposedly issued a year or two ago. My understanding is that all such documents are computer generated.
What will you bet that Mossad has a copy of the REAL certificate. It will come out soon...
We need the Generals to either challenge Obama in court (waste of time) or just take over the government as care takers until the next election...
That seems to be our last chance for justice. Let's hope Ziva survives her torture and can present the real BC of the Kenyan deceiver.
From there we would like to know how he was able to travel to an area of the world very unfriendly to the US at the time and on several types of restriction lists such as no travel, shutting calls to those countries, etc.
Additionally, we would like to know under what nationality he claimed so he could enter the University system and if he obtained loans under a foreign national status.
The questions go on and on therefore, Obama cannot allow his Birth Certificate to see the light of day. And if Obama were a real person, how come he does not show up in the spell checker here are FR. /s
Because there is plenty to hide. Birth certificate (if one exists) will not show US birth. School records will show Barry received funding as a Foreign student. Plain and simple, he’s a liar and “He Won”. I will be so happy the day he is found out and deported. There is no such thing as the perfect crime. He will be found out and exposed as the fraud he is.
Well, I went ahead and emailed Rush Limbaugh, Mark Levin and Sean Hannity - asking them why they have not addressed the eligibility issue at it’s heart, nor addressed the birth certificate issue, on their respective shows. I included a copy of this fine letter.
Oh, I did a quick check on the orig website; the letter seems legit (wouldn’t wanna get “snoped” by a bogus note, eh?).
As I mentioned to them in my email, there’s not even a whiff of any mention about this from them. To the contrary, there’s been an enormous and deafening silence from them.
Now, I don’t know about you or anyone else here on Freep, but to have such a metaphorical black hole in the normally vibrant, timely and consistent communications chatter that comes from our three strongest voices of Conservatism on the Radio, indicates to me that there’s something awry around here.
It’s like walking in the woods and the normal noises of the forest (birds, fauna) go silent when we approached... there’s something there, even if it is silent.
I’ll keep posted on any responses. No hyperbole, just summary info. But I will admit that I’m concerned; if the strongest voices of Conservatism in 1st Amendment arena are silent (or being silenced...), then it bodes ill for all...
Frankly, there's no excuse for making a statement as far off-the-mark as this one. Especially, not after I sent Hemenway an email two months ago, also correcting him on his mistaken references to the forensic analysis of the COLB. I also sent the same message to his wife, just in case he didn't get it.
Apparently, he still doesn't "get it."
Now you know why I'm asking everyone to keep reminding the public of the real reasons why Obama's COLB is bogus. Otherwise, we'll keep hearing these off-the-mark statements being made by seemingly sensible people.
These ‘sensible people’ are playing in the Obowma dissonance orchestra, and they know they’re doing nothing but creating dissinformation (read lying for their pres__ent). A fraudulent affirmative action figure maintains his fraud by the lies told for him by his sycophants. We have a few of that species working FR don’tchaknow.
BO should have been vetted before he was allowed to run for President. He is destroying the nation.
EXACTLY. All COLBs produced since November 2001 consist of a standardized, computer-generated form printed on a laser printer.
His comments are a really “bad blast from the past,” having first been raised by many people who saw the unfamiliar COLB image posted on the Daily Kos and Obama’s campaign website back on June 12, 2008.
Ping to my comments at http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/2258813/posts?page=46#46
It is looking more and more like Obowma knows he is not eligible by strict application of the Constitutional requirements, that he has chosen to work for election anyway, hoping that Americans will so love him in the office that he will be given another affirmative action figure ‘hand up’ and the Constitution will be ignored for his benefit. His first appointee for the subpreme court shows he cares not a whit for the Constitution anyway, so he expects we will so worship his nasty self that we will set the Constitution aside for his affirmative action demands.
