  • Court: Passport law on Jerusalem unconstitutional

    Associated Press ^ | Jul 23, 2013 3:21 PM EDT | Frederic J. Frommer
    A federal appeals court Tuesday declared unconstitutional a law allowing Americans born in Jerusalem to list Israel as their birthplace on their U.S. passports, the latest ruling in a case that stretches back a decade. … The case was brought by parents of an American boy named Menachem Zivotofsky, who was born in a Jerusalem hospital soon after the law was passed. The parents wanted to list Israel as his birthplace, but the U.S. has refused to recognize any nation's sovereignty over Jerusalem since Israel’s creation in 1948—so the boy’s U.S. passport only says “Jerusalem” as his birthplace. The Bush...

    The revelation that a promotional brochure produced in 1991 by Barack Obama’s literary agency touting his “Kenyan birth” was called “just a marketing gimmick” by Press Secretary Jay Carney. “The president was trying to persuade a publisher to give him a book deal,” Carney explained. “Naturally, he wanted to make the sale, so the fact that he embellished his resume shouldn’t come as a big surprise to anyone. Come on, making yourself look bigger and better than you really are is standard procedure if you hope to survive in our competitive culture. I mean, is there anyone who hasn’t lied...

    Barack Hussein Obama will be 51 years, five months, and 16 days old when he completes his Frank Abagnale impersonation on Jan. 20, 2013. That will be the day when he walks out of the White House for the last time, having played the role of president of the United States for four years, and having brought the greatest, freest, most-prosperous nation on Earth to the very brink of disaster. So what will we do with such a man… a man who promised a bedazzled electorate in 2008 that his goal was to totally transform the United States of America,...

The Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem reeked of urine and was strewn with dirty pots and pans, leftover food and mattresses after the Islamist siege in 2002.

    Lawsuits have claimed Barack Obama fails the Constitution's eligibility test for presidents because his father was a Kenyan, because he was born overseas and because his original long-form birth certificate has been withheld. Mad magazine, now, has released its solution: His birthplace is "wherever it was he was born." The magazine, in an article "How Barack Obama stacks up to the other 42 presidents," also takes jabs at Obama's dependence on Teleprompters, his middle name (Hussein), his busted lip and his onetime pastor, Jeremiah Wright.

    ....... My colleague wept, with relief as he listened to Mrs. Clinton because it became plain that the Obama administration was not hoodwinked by the Nigerian government propaganda. No detail of the country's present demeaning, life-threatening disease is hidden from the US State Department. Little wonder then why Kenyan-born Barack Obama, America's first Black President, converted his major speech at his recent Ghana trip to a scathing upbraiding of Nigeria's irresponsible leadership! Clinton is implementing a tough-love state policy: to whip Nigeria's mulish leadership into line, and let verbal fact and finesse go to hell! The patient needs drastic therapy,...

    An ongoing poll by AOL News currently shows that 58% of Americans have doubts about Obama’s citizenship. The poll was started on July 28 and continues — you can go here to vote. And lest you think that this survey is being conducted in a very anti-Obama venue, the title of the article is Birthers, Beer and Stuck on ‘Stupidly’ — it is an environment contemptuous of skeptics. So we can conclude that the results of their poll are not what they were hoping for.A scant five years ago, Barack Obama was a little known Illinois state politician, aspiring to move...
  • DID OBAMA SLIP UP IN SCHOOL SPEECH?

    I hate to sound like one of those crazy "birthers", but something Barry Soeto said today in his (mostly commendable) suck-up to tomorrow's voters caught my attention. It's just that the "Kenyan" birth certificate now the subject of legal action, the claim, on U.S. radio by the Kenyan ambassador to the U.S. that Barry was born in Kenya, and now this friendly, off-hand comment a minute or so into his speech, have me wondering..... My mother couldn't afford to send me to the school where all the AMERICAN kids went.

    Natrual Born Citizen ^ | 8/17/09 | Leo Donofrio
    Today the AP issued a story titled “Obama Birthplace Flap Evokes Arthur Debate”. The story makes an analogy between the Obama birth certificate issue and the controversy surrounding Chester Arthur’s birthplace. The story contains a lie. It states that Chester Arthur never publicly addressed the issue of Hinman’s allegations that he was born in Canada. But Arthur did specifically address these issues in the Brooklyn Eagle newspaper. However, AP and MSNBC won’t tell you that because Arthur was caught lying about his parents heritage in those newspaper interviews. He was lying to cover up the fact that Hinman was correct...

    Ronald Reagan's birthplace, a second-story apartment over what was once a small-town tavern in Tampico, Ill., is today marked by a museum. John Adams' birthplace is a national park. Even Rutherford B. Hayes, whose birthplace is today covered over by a BP gas station, merits a metal plaque commemorating the location. But while most of America's 44 presidents have tourist attractions or monuments of some kind marking their birthplaces, President Barack Obama – for several reasons – may not be granted the honor. Three obstacles in particular stand in the way: First, though Obama maintains he was born in Honolulu,...

    Finally. we have some clarity on where Barack Obama Jr. was born. (This is not birth certificate related) It seems he was born in Honolulu! At two different hospitals. Divine? You be the judge. A United Press International report from Nov. 4 states: “Obama described his birth at Queen's Medical Center in Hawaii Aug. 4, 1961” But on 1/24/09, he wrote to Kap'olani Medical Center; “As a beneficiary of the excellence of Kapi'olani Medical Center -the place of my birth - I am pleased…” At least he is now on record saying he was born in America. I'm feeling better...

    More than eight months after Barack Obama was elected president, the mystery surrounding his precise birthplace is deepening as the myth-busting website Snopes.com – along with several news agencies and an Obama community blog – directly contradict the president's own claim regarding the hospital in which he was born. In an official letter signed by Obama on White House stationery, the president celebrates his birth at the Kapi'olani Medical Center for Women and Children in Honolulu, Hawaii. The facility has posted that letter on its website, along with video of the letter being read in public. But according to Snopes,...

    The Greek god of thunder and lightning had Earthly beginnings, and scientists think they finally know where. Ancient Greeks first worshipped the omnipotent Zeus at a remote altar on Mount Lykaion, a team of Greek and American archaeologists now think. During a recent dig at the site, the researchers found ceremonial goods commonly used in cult activity and dated at over three millennia old, making them the earliest known "appearance" of Zeus in Greece. The discovery challenges the idea that Zeus worship began on the Greek island of Crete, which at least one classical historian names as the god's mythic...
  • President Obama's Birthplace - A national monument?

    President Barack H. Obama’s biographers will need to know a little more than is currently known about his birth. After all, the presidential birthplace should be a national monument. Preparations should be started now to preserve it. Where is the house in which he was born? Or was it a hospital, I can’t remember? Since Obama is one of our youngest presidents, the midwife who assisted the birth should still be alive. Historians and journalists would like to interview her. Wait, was it a doctor who attended the birth of our first black president? What was his name? Oh, you...

    Pittsburgh plots to revitalize stagnant Downtown Owners of Downtown's biggest office buildings have cut their tax assessments by nearly a quarter-billion dollars in the past five years. The lowered assessments are a sign the Golden Triangle has lost some luster. Experts blame the flight of shoppers to suburban malls, a high Downtown office vacancy rate, a city payroll tax and fewer direct flights at Pittsburgh International Airport, which corporate executives cherish. Allegheny County assessment records show the value of the Golden Triangle's 25 largest buildings has dropped or stayed the same since 2003.

    NewsBusters.Org ^ | 3/11/2006 | NewsBusters
    Saturday's Chicago Tribune includes a front page story titled, "The Bill they can't stomach: Voting Clinton's boyhood home a historic site too much for these 12 angry lawmakers." The article, written by senior correspondent William Neikirk, doesn't support the headline. Yes, twelve Republican congressmen did vote against a bill, which passed with 409 votes, to name the former president's birthplace a national historic site. But characterizing them as "angry" isn't justified, at least not by anything appearing in the article. The closest thing to "angry" was a comment made by one opponent of the Clinton site that, "Maybe it should...

    The original home of the world's most famous space rock, the Allen Hills Martian meteorite, has now been identified, thanks to data from the orbiting spacecraft Mars Global Surveyor and Mars Odyssey and a better understanding of cratering dynamics. The rock, called ALH84001, has been the subject of intense study ever since 1996 when scientists from NASA's Johnson Space Center startled the world by reporting that fossilised microbial life might be embedded inside it. The rock, which formed at the very dawn of the solar system 4.5 billion years ago, was blasted from the surface of Mars around 17 million...

    FURNESS DIG MAY HAVE FOUND ST PATRICK'S BIRTHPLACE Published on 12/07/2005 ARCHAEOLOGISTS believe they have found the birthplace of St Patrick. A dig in Urswick has uncovered a Roman fort which may be the Banna Vernta Berniae, thought by scholars to be where Ireland’s patron saint was born. Excavations are being led by Steve Dickinson, from Ulverston, who tutors archaeology at Lancaster University. Evidence of the Romans in Furness is rare. But Mr Dickinson is convinced the finds at Urswick are Roman with their typical layout of foundations and ditches. Mr Dickinson said: “I can’t tell you how important it...

Officials at the Orissa State Museum, which conducted the excavation, said that the new findings, which included artefacts dating back to 6th century BC, supported the claims of Kapileshwar being Lord Buddha's birthplace. Buddhism was founded in India, when Lord Buddha, the founder of Buddhism, attained supreme enlightenment under the Bodhi tree in Bodhgaya in 6th...
