(CNN) The White House released President Obamas original birth certificate Wednesday.
The surprise release follows recent and sustained remarks by businessman Donald Trump, among others, that raised doubts as to whether the president was born in the United States.
I am listening to Obama at the news conference. Based on his demeanor, his voice — this is a all a con. That is my impression is he and Hawaii are tendering what they know to be a fraudulent certificate. He is unsure if the con will make it through, so he is downplaying why it took so long to release, and trying to force everyone to “move on”.
“Make stuff up” — his words. “sideshows and carnival barkers” — his words. “Every confidence” — his words.
Andrew Jackson’s parents were Irish.
Thomas Jefferson’s mother was English.
James Buchanan’s father was Irish.
Chester A Arthur’s father was Irish.
Woodwrow Wilson’s mother was Enlgish.
Herbert Hoover’s mother was Canadian.
Trump interrupted by the smart ass street punk with his attitude - someone give the cliff notes - I can’t stand to listen to him.
We little people arent serious enough...and we cannot ‘multitask.’
Trump or Corsi has the real info...this IS preemptive.
WE have time Barky...you do too...problems...not golf or Oprah!
I don’t think that’s an issue. It’s a hand stamp. The person who stamped it just had a curve upward in the first block and a slight curve downward in the second. Actually, that would probably be true to how people would stamp something in a book....
yeah, big O is saying STOP THE SIDESHOW, he could have years ago by releasing the TRUE FACTS. this BC issue is as phoney as the way they rammed the Obamacare through...
He says he doesn’t have time for this silliness, yet spends 2 years fighting it? Now, he takes no questions... He spent the majority of the time saying it was silliness. WHY did he prolong this for 2 years?
I thought he said his birth name was Barry and changed it later to his father’s name? Don’t forget that Dan Rather forged GWB documents to suite his needs. This could be the same. Just looks fishy IMHO.
So in your mind the opinion of ONE congressman in 1862 trumps established law that has been upheld by SCOTUS?
I don’t see any embossed seal.
You never studied the Constitution in school, did you.
Totally agree with you!
So, the 5th and 6th were the weekend. What's your point?
I was born in a small hospital in rural Upstate NY. And what I’ve got is not a copy, as in a facsimile. At least it doesn’t look like it. The handwriting is all done in pen. I’m wondering if more than one BC was made, one for the parents, and one for the state. FWIW, my hubby’s BC, he’s a little older and born in a rural Upstate hospital, is done like mine, complete with original handwriting in pen. Neither of our BCs look like what Barry has produced. And ours look like something you’d frame.
Bamster did not spend a lot of time in front ofthe camera. Interesting.
The date stamp for the state registrar is Apr 25 2011.
Maybe the heat will be off now and people can start asking for the long form again.
The term Afrikan was used the by the Dutch/African countries to designate the aboriginies (black) African in opposed to those from European ancestry. Kenya was a Dutch colony.
I doubt that many can let it go. It’s pathological. All that time and energy WASTED on a non-issue.
How come there are white halos around ALL the typed characters, which interrupt the background pattern?
Notes from the constitutional debates show that the delegates understood the meaning of Natural Born Citizen to be a person with two parents who are/were U. S. citizens.
The NBC class of citizenship is much narrower than the citizen class. He is a citizen, but he is not a Natural Born Citizen, and that is a fact.
So the Obama and Nordyke originalos are stored in pristine condition? No deterioration after almost 50 years? I understand that the Drudge copy was superimposed on the green paper. It is not the original paper.
It’s the same paper (the green bamboo-ish thing) as the short form which everyone has already seen. It is not old paper.It's not even that; open that WH.gov docuemnt in a PDF editor ...
It's a WATERMARK applied in the pdf file ...
Note: That 'pattern' does not curve with the document itself ...
Ok - name ONE spot in the constitution that refutes what I said.
Finally! This whole nonsense has come to an end! I’m going to take birthers at their words when they said that this would all be over if he’d just released his birth certificate.
Unfortunately, Donald Trump is looking like an egotistical jackass and Obama gets to try to portray himself as serious. At least it happened now and not two days before the election with Trump as the potential nominee. Now we can move to serious matters.
I was using what I call my ‘mom’ skills...that speech as odd; bizarre actually. There is a psychiatrist on Fox...who I think used the same ‘sense’ I did (but I don’t have a degree).
Dunham/Soetaro/Obama dropped the ball. Big time. I think he actually made it more muddied.
Assuming the document in your post is authentic, the question becomes was Barack Hussein Obama (the father) a naturalized citizen of the United States on August 8, 1961? If he was not then Barack Hussein Obama II is not a natural born citizen of the United States and is Constitutionally ineligible to hold the office of President of the United States.
There, fixed it. :-)
Obama is playing you like a fiddle.
Thanks for the link; what I noticed immediately is the white haloing of the text... it’s odd, especially when you consider that ink tends to bleed a little.
Fox is giving him cover, this is the same document that he has already shown on the net.
It’s the COLB
He was hoping to save this for the primaries.
If this is real, Obama just self-destructed. People recall the Swiftboaters, I’m sure. They torpedoed the execrable Kerry’s asinine run for the WH. The way they treated Kerry will look like the kid glove treatment of a tender mother with her newborn, compared to what will happen to Obama if this thing is legit.
The commercial starts with the gates of Leavenworth slamming shut. The voice over says, ‘He asked to see his CIC’s most basic documentation—the same papers he had to show to join the military. It wasn’t too much to ask, considering he had just been asked to risk his life in Afghanistan.”
Segue to a pic of Obama golfing.
“He couldn’t be bothered. He let a decorated, honorable officer and family man rot in Leavenworth. He didn’t want to be late for his Tee-time.”
Segue to pic of Terry Lakin.
“His career was destroyed. His family suffered. All because Obama refused to release this:”
Segue to pic of BC.
Segue to another goofy pic of Obama on the golf course.
“Is this the man you want sending your sons and daughters into harm’s way???”
Voice over, ‘paid for’ etc.
Obama will be toast For FREAKEN’ Ever!!!! He will be hated and despised, even by apolitical voters. This commercial is the blow/wound from which he could NEVER recover.
Any lurking Obots who want to harp on the it’s all Lakin’s fault meme, just be aware of one thing. Maybe one or two percent of the people watching the above commercial will blame Lakin. He’s rotting in Leavenworth, remember? It’s the Golfer in Chief who takes the brunt—as well he should.
This could be the question that keeps the birth certificate controversy alive. :)
If it’s real, he is NOT eligible to be President.
If it’s fake, he’s committing fraud on the American people.
Zero was wearing a US flag pin at the press briefing he just held. Has he EVER worn a flag pin before ???????????
The mother’s signature doesn’t look like a young girl’s signature, looks more like an older woman’s or man’s handwriting. Just sayin....
Excuse me, I don’t understand your reasoning.
I am overjoyed with anyone giving Obummer trouble
and there is so much more to do
Because the Nordyke copy is from 1966. Copy machines today are quite a bit different than copy machines were in 1966. Get a new copy of the Nordyke BC today and I imagine it will look a lot like this one from Barry.
HE didn’t show anything. His campaign released the COLB and it wasn’t signed.
The questions that now beg answers as I see them are:
Why did he not release this years ago?
Why did he spend millions to keep this under wraps until now?
And the larger question... Just what does it take to be a legal, natural born citizen? And what about that 14th Amendment to the constitution and the subject to the jurisdiction thing really mean?
That larger one still needs to be addressed in the immigration issue.
I just did. The box in the middle is one box (minus the curved area that looks to be part of a book?), the date at the very bottom is one box, and the signature and confirmation of it being a true copy is one box. That’s as far as my knowledge with pdf editing goes.....
Obama's press conference reminds me of Clinton's speech on Monica Lewinsky. No questions were permitted from the reporters. And Obama must now go back to work for the American people.
Rush will have a big “I told you so” on this today...
You list people who were not under the "natural born citizen" clause like Thomas Jefferson. The other's parents were naturalized before those persons were born with the (probable) exception of Chester A Arthur who lied, obstructed and later burned his personal papers.
Every President born before the adoption of the Constitution in 1787 was eligible because of the grandfather clause of Article 2, Section 1:
No person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President;
Both Andrew Jackson and Thomas Jefferson are covered by that clause.
James Buchanans father emigrated to the U.S. from Ireland in 1783. When the U.S. Constitution was adopted in 1787 (and ratified in 1788), it conferred citizenship upon everyone living in the States. Therefore James Buchanans father was a citizen of the United States when James Buchanan was born in 1791. So, James Buchanan was a natural born citizen.
Woodrow Wilsons mother became a U.S. citizen by Congressional act in 1855. Wilson was born in 1856. Therefore, both of Wilsons parents were U.S. citizens, which makes Wilson a natual born citizen.
Herbert Hoovers mother became a citizen in 1870 under the same 1855 Congressional act that conferred citizenship on Wilsons mother. Hoover was born in 1874 to two U.S. citizen parents and he is therefore a natural born citizen.
Chester Arthur is a different story. So, I’ll refer you to this site for the details: http://naturalborncitizen.wordpress.com/2008/12/
BTW, you forgot Andrew Johnson, but he too was a natural born citizen.
Obama’s is computer generated, or computer-manipulated.
You are aware of their divorce papers, aren’t you?
Really? Even before it’s analyzed? That would be careless. I see simple inconsistencies on my own, and I’m not an expert.
