(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.
“Oh, for crying out loud, does that mean Im not a natural-born citizen,
Well, in 1844 you would have been eligible, but in 2008 a new legal principle was discovered - ignore the law and worship Vattel.
From 1844 - a little before Obama’s birth -
And the constitution itself contains a direct recognition of the subsisting common law principle, in the section which defines the qualification of the President. “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,” &c. The only standard which then existed, of a natural born citizen, was the rule of the common law, and no different standard has been adopted since. Suppose a person should be elected President who was native born, but of alien parents, could there be any reasonable doubt that he was eligible under the constitution? I think not.
6. Upon principle, therefore, I can entertain no doubt, but that by the law of the United States, every person born within the dominions and allegiance of the United States, whatever were the situation of his parents, is a natural born citizen.
About a million other people are having the exact same campaign idea this morning. The Swiftboaters showed the way. To this day, many people doubt the facts raised by the Swiftboaters—yet they succeeded.
In this case, No One can doubt the facts. IF this newest document proves legitimate, it is a railroad spike in Obama’s political coffin. The commercials would be devastating. They’re just too easy to write and understand. Obama golfed while honorable careers and entire families were laid waste. All he had to do was release a scrap of paper, but he couldn’t be bothered. He comes off looking like an inhuman monster. Sure, a few Obots will continue to ‘believe’. But the average, normal American will want to throw up.
Mark today on your calendar. If this newest COLB is the real deal, this is the day Obama’s ‘12 aspirations died.
"THE" is mispelled as "TXE." Only truly odd thing I see so far. And again, probably nothing...
Typos on an official document that would have been printed like that?
Um, because it is. The Nordyke form is from 1966, probably an old ditto/Xerox machine. Technology has improved quite a bit over the years, so of course Barry's looks new and fresh in comparison. In 1966, both the Director of Health and the Registrar General signed copies that were sent out. In 2011, apparently just the State Registrar signs it. Sometimes it just is what it is and there is no grand conspiracy.
Wait a minute... On the Nordyke form, it was signed by the 'Registrar General'. Barry's is signed by the 'State Registrar'. STOP THE PRESSES, its an obvious fake!! /sarc
Tim Adams was a joker who infiltrated a racist group and made up this story to see what people's reactions would be. He styles himself as a sort of "gonzo" journalist. I figured this out after viewing his Youtube videos, but people will just latch on to what they want to believe is true.
There is a tremendous amount of valid criticism of this president. This is bogus and makes us look foolish. And look...exactly what we knew would happen if he released it. It is a forgery call! There you go. With all we have to criticize him on.....this is what we are talking about.
Yes, but I only had ONE alien parent, my father, and when he was born in 1939, his country, the Philippines, was an American territory.
He was probably told right after saying he would search not to even try.
Absolutely. Anything that doesn’t fit the birther narrative is a forgery. Duh! Where have you been? ;p
“””THE” is mispelled as “TXE.” Only truly odd thing I see so far. And again, probably nothing...”
Why is the type bold on the “of txe” part of the certification, and not on the rest of the letters?
(Skeptics would argue it’s to avoid legal liability for the certification if the full certification is not proper...)
Just in case everyone’s busy and you didn’t get an answer - no, you are not a NBC. Born on soil, to parents who are citizens at the time of the child’s birth. They can be naturalized but have to be citizens.
Good catch. It does have the seal. Not that easy to see on a computer image. Thanks!
Stop mocking de Vattel. He invented Velveeta. It’s good stuff. Goes great with jalapenos. Yum.
Could you address this:
TITLE 8 > CHAPTER 12 > SUBCHAPTER III > Part I > § 1401
Prev | Next
§ 1401. Nationals and citizens of United States at birth
See my post #868.
There is no typo. I actually says THE but there appears to have been some grit or dust on the stamp lying across part of the H that makes it appears as an X.
