Skip to comments.A "Barrack Hussein Mohamed Obama" was born on 23 August 1961 in Canada ??? [WOIA, San Antonio]

I have been reading for some time about Barack Hussein Obama's birth certificate controversy. At first I dismissed it because I thought there was no way the Democratic Party would allow someone who is not qualified to run for the office of President.
I now understand that at least half of the state attorney generals in the country will challenge Obamas residency before certifying his nomination. Lawsuits will be filed to clarify Obamas birth in the United States.
Until today I simply believed that Obama was born in Hawaii. After doing some research I found it is not so clear cut. Obama may have been born in Canada or even Kenya. The birth certificate he has provided as proof of live birth is flawed. The first one his election team provided had no certification seal. The second had the seal and fold marks.
There is also a "Barrack Hussein Mohamed Obama" born on 23 August 1961 in Canada -- which is where people are saying Obama was really born -- not Hawaii.
The Kenya rumor is one I cannot find anything on. At the time of Obamas birth, his pregnant mother would have had a hard time getting all the immunizations needed to enter Kenya. So I don't believe this rumor is valid.
I do believe the Obama campaign may have a big surprise come nomination day.
My question here in the "No Bull Zone" -- have any of you heard anything on this topic? As I have said, I am really not sure, but there is smoke surrounding this topic and the Obama campaign had been extremely secretive about this issue. Could he have been born in Canada? Is the Hawaii birth certificate real, even though but it has no seal or signature. What say you? I am on the fence on this one.
In fact, it is not clear just who "Rob" is himself; here is what WOAI has to say about him:
Rob is the blogger behind "Rob's No Bull Zone" on woai.com. All we know for sure about him is that he's United States Air Force Retired. Everything else is a mystery.So let's not get too excited about this little purported "factoid" just yet.
On the other hand, are there any Freepers with Canadian genealogical and/or birth records experience who could shed some light on Rob's assertion?
Now a Canadian birth, in August of 1961, is not at all out of the realm of the possible; remember, we know that Stanley Ann Dunham and the newborn Barry Jr had surfaced in Seattle, Washington, at the very beginning of 1962, already alone and abandoned by the birth father [presumably Barack Hussein Obama Sr]:
Obama's mother known here as "uncommon"So it's not at all unthinkable that Stanley Ann Dunham could have gone "home" to the state of Washington, sometime in 1961, most likely to escape the embarrassment of having her friends at the University of Hawaii witness her developing out-of-wedlock pregnancy.

...By 1962, Dunham had returned to Seattle as a single mother, enrolling in the UW for spring quarter and living in an apartment on Capitol Hill...
Beyond that, it's not much more difficult to imagine that Stanley Ann Dunham might have wanted to cross over into Canada to give birth to her child:
1) Stanley Ann knew that the child would be mulatto, which would have caused a fair amount of controversy in and of itself, and the miscegenation aspects of the child's conception might actually have been illegal in many American jurisdictions of the era.So a Canadian birth for Barack Hussein [Mohamed?] Obama Soetoro Dunham is not at all out of the realm of the possible.
2) Hers had been an adulterous union with the married Barack Hussein Obama Sr, who had a wife and a son back in Kenya.
3) The whole mess was further complicated by the question of whether the 24-year-old Barack Hussein Obama Sr might have committed statutory rape when he engaged in coitus with the [presumably] 17-year-old Stanley Ann Dunham, back in November of 1960.
And for anyone who wonders about the importance of a Canadian birth: If one of the parents was a foreigner, and if the birth took place on foreign soil, then the child is not eligible for American birth citizenship unless the American birth parent had lived in the United States, as an American citizen, and AS AN ADULT, for five years.
But Stanley Ann Dunham was only 18, not 23, when Barack Jr was born, and so, if it was a Canadian birth, then Barack Jr does not qualify for American birth citizenship, and is constitutionally ineligible to assume the presidency [unless maybe the birth was on "American soil", in Canada, such as on the grounds of the American embassy - do they deliver babies at the embassy?].
We need to make sure this isn’t true, because if he is disqualified thaen Hillary will get the nod.
After the Convention... once the Dems buy the ticket.. they’ll have to take the ride.
Sorry about that.
While it is clear that DailyKos' mockup CLB is not reliable, the mere rumor of a Canadian BC isn't reliable either.
What bothers me is if he was born in Hawaii, why doesn’t he just get a copy of his birth certificate? They keep them, don’t they??
You echo my fears exactly.
This is the first I have heard of a Barack Hussein Obama being born in August of 1961 in Canada as if someone found a record.
Where does that come from?
It should wait to be "proven" after the convention. Their nominated candidate disqualified, the dems would be in total disarray.....................
Wasn’t his mother seen in Washington state when Barack was three weeks old? That would make sense with this.
We do need to make this is true. Right after the convention.
Yeah, this popped up after the first time Hussein refused to produce his birth certificate. If true, I would like to see the BC pop into the press just after the Dems finish partying about him taking the nomination. McCain wins.
Same article and discussion thread from 8/12/2008
Also, did Canada have free health care in 1962?
Did Washington have segregated birth areas for black mothers and black children? Did Hawaii?
Why doesn’t Obama just authorize the Secretaries of States to access the State of Hawaii Birth Records to verify that a valid certificate exists?
I have the feeling Stanley Ann and her parents withheld a lot of vital information from her son. Typical white folks.
It is hard in 2008 to remember what it was like in 1961 for a young woman to have a child out of wedlock. It is unlikely she ever thught the circumstances of his birth would become relevant on the national and world stage.
However, it is a fun development given the way so many Obama folks wanted to disqualify McCain because he was born in a US military hospital in Panama.
What goes around ..........
Because he’s hiding something?........Couldn’t be. That’s the obvious answer. Time to break out Occam’s razor.
The current working theory is summarized in this thread:
Obama Citizenship Controversy - Did Obama Travel to Pakistan on an Indonesian Passport? A Summary.See also this reply:
So the current working theory holds that you would need a judge's order to unseal the 1970 records, then a second judge's order to unseal the 1965/1966 records, then a third judge's order to unseal the original 1961 records.
So right now, the theory holds that Barack Jr is sitting behind doubly redundant legal protection which keeps anyone from getting at the original 1961 records.
And if Barack Jr was born on American soil [not Canadian or Kenyan or Japanese soil], then the new HIPAA legislation would make it a felony for a hospital worker to release the hospital records of his birth without a court order.
