Skip to comments.The Barack Obama Nationality Question Heats Up
Posted on 01/09/2010 9:32:07 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet
President Barack Obama's nationality scandal is gathering speed and refusing to go away now that Congress has got involved.
There have been rumbles of unrest around the world regarding Obama's nationality since the day he stated he would run for the presidency. Now, after more than a year as president of the USA, the rumbles have turned into a full on eruption.
The Barack Obama nationality scandal is refusing to burn itself out and seems to be gathering even more speed with Congressman Nathan Deal questioning the eligibility of Obama to hold the presidency. This is the first time in history that a serving president has been questioned about eligibility by a member of congress.
Over the last week the internet has been reporting this story with the blogosphere almost going into meltdown over the latest developments yet no mainstream media seem interested in the story that just won't go away for Obama.
Congressman Deal asked the president to prove that he is legally entitled to hold the presidency electronically on December 1st 2009. This communication was confirmed received by Obama's staff but has yet to be responded to.
Even though the president has already produced his short-form birth certificate in order to stop these questions, he has spent a large amount of taxpayers money (estimated to be more than two million dollars) ensuring that the long-form certificate is kept from the public - an action that has raised more than a few eyebrows along the way.
Throughout the campaign trail and longer, Obama made promises of the most transparent administration than any other so why the need to hide a simple birth certificate? Many claim that the whole situation is a complete waste of time and distracting but supporters of the question refuse to stop asking more and more questions.
It seems that the original question seems to have caused a stir not just in America but worldwide with thousands of people doing independent research in an attempt to get the facts out. The problem with independent research is that it is hard to verify where the alleged facts came from and when they are traced back it's not unusual to find that it stemmed from opinion.
With several birth certificates doing the rounds, many proven as hoaxes, the 'official' birth certificate in the Obama nationality scandal seems to prove that the president was in fact a British Subject at birth. On the website dedicated to protecting Obama from smears, Fight The Smears, there is an electronic copy of the birth certificate showing that Obama was born a British Subject. This in itself has been the cause for much speculation on how, why and when nationality was transferred.
Obama's nationality scandal doesn't seem to be going anywhere at the moment and even the Secret Service seem to be taking an interest in anyone questioning Obama's nationality with visits being made for security reasons. Reported last week at Mother Jones, more and more people who have raised issue are being visited by the Secret Service and being left feeling very intimidated.
No matter what side of the fence you sit on this scandal seems set to stay around for a long time to come.
This is GREAT NEWS!!!!!
Hey, Glenn Beck: are you ready to “question w/ boldness” now, or will you continue to “hide behind your desk”?
This question of Obama’s nationality only shows how the democrats have no sense of pride. They should be the first to ascertain that the leader of their party is legally qualified to be POTUS.
I don't. But however this turns out it is clear he in not an American for reasons that should be obvious.
I am not a “birther.” One way or another, however, I’m entitled to verification.

We all are. But beyond that it is clear to me Obama hates this country and that is all we need to know.
Then you are a birther.
Next time somebody decides to do this kind of recap of the birther issue, I hope it will be somebody who knows how to write an English sentence. This was dreadful. But I would speculate that even IF the issue is not about to “burn itself out”, and starts to achieve “critical mass”, we can probably expect another contrived crisis a la Bill Clinton , to take our minds off the issue altogether.
Once he figures out how to put together a skit on this using a dead fish he'll come around...
“Then you are a birther.”
I prefer to call them Strict Constructionists.
Didn’t Obozo admit to his Kenyan ancestry when he first ran for congress? And saying it was no big deal since he wasn’t running for President? In 2004, I think?
I remember posting a link to the UK news source on this, one of the few that hadn’t yet been scrubbed. I’ll have to go back and look for it again.
I have’nt heard about that regarding the SS.Could be a little fear mongering to try and stamp this out.Aint happening and it aint going away.
I will Never Never understand this. Its like people have been blinded. Good thing God knows the truth and is in control.
Re: Obama’s Eligibility and Beck
There are only two conclusions possible:
1) Beck is an ignorant idiot.
2) Beck is evil.
Beck is the Pied Piper and too many are captivated by his tune.
I don't believe Obama has ever denied his Kenyan ancestry.
Beck and the rest of the other yappers must be part of the paid “controlled opposition”.
These yappers are essentially running small businesses. Their product is honest reporting. Well....Beck and the rest have tarnished and cheapened their “brand name”.
Heats up? Is it above freezing yet?
“FREE THE LONG FORM!”
While we’re at it, I’d like to see ahis authentic Selective Service Registration.
They picked apart McCain, and went through Palin’s trash looking for dirt.
Ummm... since the libs though Bush was a dunce based on his grades, hwere is the Left’s criteria making Obama a genius.? In other words, no one has seen Obamas school transcripts.

Anyone who cares about their country would be very concerned that a POTUS had hidden every scrap of information of his life that he possibly could.
Oh, but he’s a great ‘orator’ though. Makes everyone feel better who failed speech 101 in college.
See Bob Owens’ piece on Pajamas Media (a trustworthy source) titled “Did Barack Obama register for Selective Service”. It pretty much confirms he did according to an Selective Service official in Hawaii, and provides lots of background information about the very specific changes registration has gone through in the 60s and 70s.
So, perhaps Zero himself is a birther. LOL
I think it’s time to repossess the White House!
I can’t imagine that the Secret Service would have snything to do with this question. The rest of use may question his authenticity...not the SS... There job is to protect - question not...
At the time of the drafting and ratification of the United States constitution,
the definition of natural born citizen, combined both the principles of jus soli and jus sanguinis.
The citizens are the members of the civil society; bound to this society by certain duties, and subject to its authority, they equally participate in its advantages. The natives, or natural-born citizens, are those born in the country, of parents who are citizens.
As the society cannot exist and perpetuate itself otherwise than by the children of the citizens, those children naturally follow the condition of their fathers, and succeed to all their rights. The society is supposed to desire this, in consequence of what it owes to its own preservation; and it is presumed, as matter of course, that each citizen, on entering into society, reserves to his children the right of becoming members of it. The country of the fathers is therefore that of the children; and these become true citizens merely by their tacit consent. We shall soon see whether, on their coming to the years of discretion, they may renounce their right, and what they owe to the society in which they were born. I say, that, in order to be of the country, it is necessary that a person be born of a father who is a citizen; for, if he is born there of a foreigner, it will be only the place of his birth, and not his country.
Emmerich De Vattel, (1714-1767,) Law of Nations, 1758, § 212, "Of the citizens and naturals."
This question of Obamas nationality only shows how the democrats have no sense of pride.

Just two simple sentences but they are absolutely golden. Good post!
We can but hope.
I’m no birther. I just don’t believe he can prove that he meets the Constitutional qualification of being a natural born Citizen. That’s because he’s not one.
Oh! I guess I’m a birther then. OK.
Talk about a puppet!
Then you are a birther.
Oh Nooooooo.... ;^)
let’s see it barry
Everybody’s missing the point here. This doesn’t matter. Even if 100% of Americans agree Obama is ineligible, he’ll never be removed from office. It’ll never happen.
This country stopped being a country of laws when Bill Clinton comitted purjury before a grand jury and no one even blinked. Anyone else would have gone to jail.
If we couldn’t eject Clinton for comitting a crime on national television, Obama’s safe.
I ran across the story below while I was doing a search. Got a good laugh. :)
It still matters.
When I go to get my driver’s license I have to show several things, including my birth certificate. Why are you so against the president proving he was born in this country??
You would need this list + 2 picture Id’s to work anywhere or get a legal drivers license. Did he have a valid Illinois Driver’s license ? Hawaiian? Does he drive?
Show me the paperwork ....
Of course it matters - it matters if you’re American. It won’t matter to liberals because they aren’t.
You’ll get no argument from me on that.
