Barry's Kenyan B.C.??
Special Motion for leave

For what it's worth, here's the theory I've seen on that.
If Hillary had released this during the primaries, it would have been perceived by blacks as an unforgivable sabotage of Barry's candidacy, and they would have sat out the election in great enough numbers to swing the election to McCain.
Understanding these dynamics, Hillary decided to take her chances at beating him fair and square, and lost.
Now, what doesn't make sense about that theory to me, is that she could have leaked the evidence of his ineligibility from any number of sources that wouldn't be easily traced back to her.
But - there's the countervailing thought that Barry's campaign would have scuttled her chances anyway, just by claiming that she was responsible. That's all it would have taken. Who would blacks have believed, Obama, or Hillary?
We're not cannibals.
EVen an illeagal election?
And she wasn’t banned. 4 posts and one knew what she was.
Yup ask Doug From Upland about that.
Since everybody seems to play the what- if game, my speculation is how can Obama be brought to bear?
Assuming the document is bona fide and that Obama was born in Kenya and further assuming that that means that he is not a natural born citizen, what next? Conservatives and Republicans have not the numbers in the House to bring articles of impeachment. There is some question whether we could peel off some Democrats. I take my lesson from the impeachment of Bill Clinton and I am not sanguine about the odds of converting enough Democrats in the House to the place where they will become actual supporters of the United States Constitution. Assuming sufficient Democrats combined with Republicans to impeach the president, we have the same problem in the Senate and, again, the impeachment of Bill Clinton is instructive and not confidence inspiring.
Republicans were not showing great many courageous profiles then and I expect to see even less courage among the profiles when the Democrats play the race card. Republicans have never stood up to it before, I don't see a reason why they will do so now.
Equally, the chances of getting an adjudication in a court are probably even slimmer. The court has already ruled countless times on the issue of standing, and the bona fides of the Kenyan document or the spuriousness of the Hawaii document do not change the rationale behind those rulings, unless the judges read the newspapers and unless it becomes plain that the public sentiment has greatly changed. Even if the courts changed their mind on standing, it is still likely that they would call this a political question and choose not to rule. It is mind-boggling to conceive of the judge issuing an order telling a sitting President of the United States to vacate the White House.
Even if all the legal obstacles could be overcome, the likelihood that could be done before 2012 is problematic.
I think, realistically, our solution is a political one in which we seek to so discredit Obama that he becomes a lame duck in his first year and is party is massacred at the polls in 2010.
I quite agree with you that it is the vice president who will succeed in the unlikely event that it comes to that. The vice president's office is a constitutional office and he is elected in his own right. In any event, I would infinitely prefer to have a conventional domestic leftist as President of the United States than an illegal alien who is a Manchurian Marxist. We have dealt with Biden's kind throughout the 20th century and we know how to fight and neutralize him. Besides he will have no credibility anyway. God only knows the damage Barack Obama is contemplating for our country.
Yeah. I don't sleep well.
I first had that horrible thought in January.
The election wasn't illegal.
The second photo with the tear on it was created by a FRiend here. It was only meant to clarify the image for easier reading.
They are both the same document though one has the background deleted.
So now who will the Obots say has the burden of proof?
Oh, you’re fine. It’s some people who go off on tangents without bothering to read.
Vital records, hmmmm. Why not just come out and say "we saw barrys original birth certificate?
Another unanswered question....why spend so much money keeping it hidden? And why go through such trouble of covering up all past records?
Wow. So, Orly Taitz is really a left-wing plant, engaged in a huge disinformation campaign to make conservatives look bad.
Damn. Who would'a thunk it?
I really don’t understand,if one candidate was ineligible and clearly fraudulent why no new election.
Sadly our brainstorimg is seen as foolishness by many. Our willingness to throw out ideas to be confirmed or denied is read as gullible. I have no problem if anyone disagrees with me. If I am wrong about anything I can admit it (sometimes my pride gets in the way, but hey, I am human).
But the one thing that really pisses me off are the holier than thou’s who cannot wait to tell us what useful village idiots we are because we are willing to explore an event to its logical conclusion.
I know that I would rather make an informed judgement after gathering as many facts as I can. Just as I don’t accept the authenticity of this doc on faith, neither do I accept the declaration of it being a fraud by the posters who seem to think they are so much smarter than the rest of us.
If that makes us useful idiots, so be it.
Just in case my post reads wrong, I am agreeing with your post. Sometimes my posts do not read the way I intended. I worry about that.
Compared to Soros and Chicago, the Clintons are amateurs.
Must leave again for a couple of hours....Please ping me to any important information. Thanks.
LOL! Damn browser spell check. :)
If only I was a billionaire. They seem to respond to cash.
But he selected him as his running mate. That entire ticket should be declared a fraud if this birth certificate proves to be real.
Good points. It is very likely that Taitz and her team would protect themselves by such testing being insisted upon before filing.
The pictures of Bill was one of his famous cat swallowed the carnary looks.
Babies have a habit of asserting themselves at inopportune moments. Perhaps Mombasa is where they happened to be when the birth process began.
There was probably a dearth of hospitals then in Kenya. I could certainly see them wanting a hospital birth rather than a village birth in case of any problems. That might have been reason enough for them to journey to Mombasa.
I’m not a lawyer and this is over my head.
After searching fairly diligently, I haven't found that. But check out Feinstein's remarks in an October 5, 2004 Senate hearing. The testimony from this hearing is worth reading. I haven't checked the attachments.
I am just reluctant. I suppose I am reluctant because I am not sure it is damaging to go through that first generation of missing that right of aspiration to the highest office of the land, to which so few really aspire, and that in terms of the common good of the general electorate, that right doesn't create a burden which is a healthy burden because it connotes with it a deeper responsibility. ...
Having searched the Congressional Record from 1995 to the present, on the phrase "natural born," this list represent ALL of the relevant proposed legislation and/or constitutional amendment involving eligibility for the office of president.
For the most part, born in the US is taken as "natural born," even if the birth is to a foreigner who comes to the US solely for the purpose of giving birth, and the foreigner returns to their native country and raises the child there. The US has a cottage industry, catering to Koreans and Japanese, mostly, that performs exactly this service, and with exactly the function to confer citizenship on the child.

Sponsored by Claire McCaskill of Missouri, with 5 co-sponsors:
This hospital having a reputation for being the better one?
Doesn't make sense. Nairobi, the capital, has many more hospitals. And this particular hospital in Mombasa, Coast General, seems to be nothing special. It's just a public hospital. There are public hospitals in Nairobi.
Where is it mushrooming? Only here on FR? If it shows up on Drudge, or elsewhere in the media...Then I’ll get excited.
McCain is not a natural born citizen, either.
No prob. I’ve been up all night with this thread, and just gulped down two cups o’joe to keep the eyelids open. Don’t know if anything I’m posting is making sense, though. LOL
You are correct — Biden did give the time frame. This would sure be major.
They don’t hide much, pretty blatant and in your face all the time.
Biden CANNOT be made POTUS since the entire ticket was a fraudulent one.
Because if you were already married, and yet your new 18 year old plaything wife wanted to see your country, would you take her to your village, or to the opposite side of the country, knowing she would never run into your real wife there while at the supermarket. Probably Mombasa had a nice beach.
In regard to the Keyes suit, didn't Taitz say that DoJ lawyers were arrayed against her? That being the case, WE are paying, not Zer0.
SO there NOW exists CLEAR doubt as to the viability of Hussein’s legal right to claiming the position of Commander and Chief of the US Military.
With Americans being killed in his war in Afghanistan at on the orders of their chain of command (from him), I predict that there will be soon be a Constitutional crisis where a General Officer (or Officers) as well as the entire Command their are responsible for will force a showdown in some way.
I am not talking about active revolt against 0bama - but certainly more than anyone person has so far asserted thus far today.
I think this is inevitable because of the bond of trust and respect out present Military has for its leadership and visa versa.
The Leadership of the UA Military sees this as sacrosanct and if they are getting orders to conduct warfare from a person whose legitimacy is proven to be at least as questionable as it has been demonstrated to be legitimate, then (a some point) their leaders will feel duty bound to the men they lead to do the right thing to get the verification they feel they owe to the soldiers they lead.
I think its simply a matter of time that 0bama will be forced to disclose.
I do not like this path but it has to be expected at some point?
I'm not saying they should have had the baby in the village but Mombasa is very far from the village. Nairobi, the capital city, has many hospitals and is much closer. Do we think they were touring the coast, far from their home village, on a trip to Kenya while she's days from giving birth? It just doesn't pass the common sense test.
Bookmarking and fingers crossed.
So quiet you could hear a pin drop.
I have never seen a thread like this, 40,000+ views that was conceivably real news go ignored by everyone.
This is perhaps why the "Birther" thing kept getting echoed and ridiculed, because they knew this was going to come out and they wanted it inoculated. Why isn't this up on Drudge, Hot Air, and more its big even if is inconclusive. This throws real doubt on the narrative of the FactCheck COLB. It confirms the narrative of the family members in Kenya who say he was born there, and the general understanding of what happened in Hawaii after he was born.
Something doesn't add up with the current COLB and the birth announcements, but that is another story entirely.
Will do. I will be in and out most of the day, so will ping you to anything I see.
A woman in the office noted during our daily lunch in front of Fox News that Hillary had had "some work" done. She does look like she's been stretched a bit. The broken elbow thing could have been a cover for her face lift.
Well how thought provoking since every 18 year old American wants to give birth in a 3rd world village.
Gee Laz, you think Jim’s got a point?
Thanks, but that post of mine was WAAAAAY off, as you will determine if you have the tenacity to wade through what is not way over 1000 posts.
The second document was an attempt by a certain Freeper to make the document a bit more legible, but it caused ALL kinds of confusion.
Your observation goes to plausibility but vicissitudes of travel may have put them in Mombasa when he was born. I don't think we have any knowledge yet of where they may have been travelling to or from bracketing this purported interlude in Kenya.
If you look at her website and the filing with the court she is on a plane to London this morning and will be there for one day. She reminds the court that she will be out of the country until August 24th. My guess is that she is going to the UK (where the back up records are kept) and possibly to Kenya.
