The Barack Obama Nationality Question Heats Up
Big News ^ | January 9, 2010

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 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.

We all are. But beyond that it is clear to me Obama hates this country and that is all we need to know.

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.

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.

Re: Obama’s Eligibility and Beck

There are only two conclusions possible:

1) Beck is an ignorant idiot.
2) Beck is evil.

These yappers are essentially running small businesses. Their product is honest reporting. Well....Beck and the rest have tarnished and cheapened their “brand name”.

When the Secret Service gets here I have a list of questions for them. Bring sleeping bags and lots of Spam. You won't be leaving until I get some answers.

0bamas’ hidden records: Why are these off limits?

1 Certified copy of original birth certificate
2 Columbia University transcripts
3 Columbia thesis paper
4 Campaign donor analysis requested by 7 major watchdog groups
5 Harvard University transcripts
6 Illinois State Senate records
7 Illinois State Senate schedule
8 Law practice client list and billing records/summary
9 Locations and names of all half-siblings and step-mother
10 Medical records (only the one page summary released so far)
11 Occidental College Transcripts
12 Parent’s marriage Certificate
13 Record of baptism
14 Selective Service registration records
15 Schedules for trips outside of the United States before 2007
16 Passport records for all passports
17 Scholarly articles
18 SAT and LSAT test scores
19 Access to his grandmother in Kenya
20 List of all campaign workers that are lobbyists
21 Punahou grade school records
22 Noelani Kindergarten records are oddly missing from the the State of Hawaii Department of Education.
23 Page 11 of Stanley Ann Dunham's divorce decree.

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.

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.

If as Comrade Obama Jr claims his dad was Barak Hussein Obama Sr, of Kenya,
than it's not possible for Junior to be a Natural Born Citizen of the U.S.

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."

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.
