If he was born in Hawaii, he is automatically a citizen regardless of who his mother or father was. Birthright citizenship via jus solis.

Probably just a mistake on the part of his publicist. Such mistakes are very common.

THIS SIMPLY CANNOT BE A TYPO!

Too many times this has been said and written over the past decades to not be true.

If it was not, why didnt this guy, whom I can only assume wasn’t doing anything more important back then, not call them up and say “Hey, I was born in Hawaii, dufus”?

I recall that in 2008 all WMAL radio hosts would ask daily about Obama’s birthplace, and the BC, and whether or not he was being vetted by the mainstream media — and the hosts would turn ‘blue in the face’ driving this point home but — Nothing! Nada! Zilch! Niente!

I cannot believe for one minute that the mainstream media didn’t know that this booklet existed...

So who are you going to believe: a fake (according to Arpaio's cold case posse) birth certificate or a promotional booklet produced in 1991 by Barack Obama's then-literary agency, Acton & Dystel?

Since the promo booklet is older than his fake birth certificate, then is it more valid or is it like software and the fake BC is the latest rev, so it's more valid?

What do you suppose the blackmail value of the truth is in today's market?

How much is it costing us, in blackmail, to have the messiah as potus?

“...Mistake maybe but I think Breitbart’s take on it is correct. Obama has manipulated his persona again and again. America certainly did not elect the man presented to us. He didn’t exist...”

Agreed. He is the most chameleon-like politician America has ever encountered. In a whole new category, all by himself.

There are only two ways to obtain US citizenship. You are naturalized or you are born a citizen thru jus sanguinis or jus solis.

Give me your definition of "natural born citizen" as defined in the Constitution in terms of eligibility for the Presidency.

That's what the Founding Fathers would have said. It doesn't matter how many allegiances or multiple citizenships a person has, as long as they were born here.

You could have parents, one with Russian citizenship and one with Chinese citizenship who fly here to give birth so that that child could be president some day, exactly what the FFs had in mind!

I didn't think you were right about your claim until I thought it through. Good call.

I think he just said whatever needed to be said to get what he wanted at that particular time in his history. I still believe the reason why we haven't seen his college transcripts, writings, grades, etc., is that it simply doesn't portray the narrative that he wants out there.

Also, this isn't going anywhere unless one of the MSM breaks ranks and runs with it. If one does then all of them will. If not, it will just be one more overlooked piece of evidence.

Birth Abroad to One Citizen and One Alien Parent in Wedlock

A child born abroad to one U.S. citizen parent and one alien parent acquires U.S. citizenship at birth under Section 301(g) of the INA provided the U.S. citizen parent was physically present in the United States or one of its outlying possessions for the time period required by the law applicable at the time of the child’s birth. (For birth on or after November 14, 1986, a period of five years physical presence, two after the age of fourteen, is required. For birth between December 24, 1952 and November 13, 1986, a period of ten years, five after the age of fourteen, is required for physical presence in the United States or one of its outlying possessions to transmit U.S. citizenship to the child.) The U.S. citizen parent must be genetically related to the child to transmit U.S. citizenship.

God willing this gains legs....and arms....and a whole slew of other avenues, across the country!! I know in AZ, the fight has been taken to Obama (thanx to Sheriff Joe) and I believe a couple other states sheriffs have too....but the more “VETTING” that can be done, to REVEAL this FRAUD, the better!! Get him GONE..BEFORE the Nov elections, and that would be a BIG way to save this country, IMO!
