Media finally paying attention to eligibility?
WND ^ | Feb. 29, 2012 | WND

Posted on 02/29/2012 12:20:17 PM PST by hiho hiho

PHOENIX, Ariz. – Poll after poll in recent months has revealed that Americans have a high level of concern over Barack Obama’s eligibility to be president, with one poll revealing fully half of the nation wants Congress to investigate the question.

But mostly reporters for the traditional media – networks, major newspapers, major news corporations and conglomerates – have giggled when talk turns to the serious question of just what – exactly – does the U.S. Constitution require of presidents.

I don’t know. If Obama would show up at an eligibility, then he could tell us.

(Sounds of forgers frantically creating the 3rd fraudulent birth certificate).

The media KNOW but act as if they don’t.

Much worse is that the E-Pubs know as well, and so do members of the Court, which is why this will "die on the vine."

Nobody, basically, challenged him in 2008. Nobody in their right mind thought that any political party would nominate an ineligible candidate.

They knew, else why go to the trouble of trying to include him in that stupid Sense of the Senate Resolution declaring McCain was eligible to run.

And conveniently the vetting documentation left out a critical verbage to allow him to be a candidate?

I wasn't aware that there even were any attempts to "include him" in that Resolution. Do you have some info on that? That sounds like interesting reading.
But, yes, you're probably right and I stand corrected..."they" knew and did nothing.

I hope the sherriff has bodyguards for his protection. Knowing how sinister the Obama administration is, I wouldn’t be surprised if he orders Arpaio to be eliminated.

I expect some "breaking" national news story that will last a few days and thus overshadow the news conference.

In the 60’s, you could list your kids on your passport. If the kid naturalized in a foreign state, then the person’s name should be written on the application and struck out (see declaration printed above the signature of a 1968 passport renewal application).

The person who is struck out files an affidavit and attaches it to the application. An explanation was not provided in the Chris Strunk FOIA response.

The mainstream media will take eligibility seriously as soon as it can be used to attack a conservative candidate.

Obamas Mother, warning America that we have elected a man bent on destroying our country.

Thank you Stanly Ann Dunham. If only Hitlers mother had been so forthright.

“I have not (and no other person included or to be included in the passport has), since acquiring United States citizenship, been naturalized as a citizen of a foreign state…”

And BO’s name was written there on the application — and then struck out.

“(If any of the above-mentioned acts or conditions have been performed by or apply to the applicant, or to any other person included or to be included in the passport, the portion which applies should be struck out, and a supplementary explanatory statement under oath (or affirmation) by the person to whom the portion is applicable should be attached and made a part of this application.)”

So where is BO’s sworn statement that’s supposed to be attached to SAD’s passport application?

Soebarkah was his adopted Indonesian name, probably related in some way to some Islamic ritual.

As I recall, when this passport came out the white house pushed out a copy of his presidential passport to divert attention. It was a cute story about presidents having passports after getting a question from some kid who mailed a question to the president. The timing was perfect. The white house knew it would be coming and were ready. Today, Team Obama, under comments at WND, they are pushing the sex crimes cover up and incompetence of the sheriff. Tomorrow should be fun.

IIRC, McCaskill tried to amend the pro-Mccain resolution to say anyone whose grandfather was in the US military is a natural born citizen.

His mom struck his name off her passport renewal application because he naturalized in Indonesia.

*******

1. How old was Obama when his name was crossed out on the passport form?

2. When his mother crossed out Obama's name, did it mean that Obama was left with NO United States passport at all?

3. Or, did it mean that now Obama had a United States passport under his own name? Thanks.

“Or, did it mean that now Obama had a United States passport under his own name?”

There is a method to exclude a person previously listed on a family passport. It does not involve striking out their name. Names are struck when the person listed on the passport has naturalized in a foreign state.

Coupled with the St. Francis Assisi school registration, it’s clear Obama naturalized as an Indonesian National.

I think you have it wrong. First, why would it be Farsi, if it’s Indonesian?

I think it’s his Indonesian name. It’s common for Indonesians to have one name, instead of two.

I have to say as much as I am hoping this. Lows the whole thing wide open,
I’m preparing myself to hear “we found nothing, everything is peachy” and then the media will run wild with stories about crazy right wingers ... I would hope that sheriff Joe would not hold a press conference unless he really had the goods otherwise the left will mock him to no end.

“Soebarkah” is Barak Obama’s Indonesian name.

Hi, hiho hiho,

Why would Arpaio release his findings on Friday instead of Thursday?

Friday is usually the “dump negative data day” in hope that people will tend to not pay as much attention to it over the weekend.

If Arpaio has nothing or not much, it will fall into the “dump negative data day” wastebasket.

On the other hand, if Arpaio really, really has something, I guess Thursday or Friday wouldn't matter much.

Crossing my fingers that there is a lot to be served by Arpaio & his posse!

That's funny, I have you tagged on the FR Enhancement Suite as "Thinks Soebarkah means Steve in Indonesia. Ignore."

Probably from this:
