    What the Hawaii AG forced Bennett to do to his request for verification: 1. Withdraw the whole form he submitted. Because the form had no special directions, HRS 338-14.3 would require the HDOH to verify the accurate, legally-probative facts, and HI can't do that for Obama because his birth record is late and amended - and thus not legally probative as per HRS 338-17. 2. Keep the request for verification that asked the HDOH to verify what is on Obama's birth record. The HDOH can do that without claiming that any of those CLAIMS on the BC are actuallly accurate...

    OBAMA-ARIZONA BALLOT Hawaii to Ariz.: Prove need to verify Obama birth PHOENIX (AP) - The attorney general's office in Hawaii is telling Arizona's secretary of state that if he wants confirmation of President Barack Obama's birth records, he'll have to prove he legitimately needs it. Special Assistant Joshua Wisch said late Friday that Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett hasn't done that despite numerous email and phone exchanges between their offices. Wisch says Hawaii state laws require Bennett to show legal authority that this office needs the records to update its official lists as part of its ordinary work. Wisch...

    Monte Kuligowski column Barack Obama: The original birther Monte Kuligowski May 19, 2012 We've always known that the original birthers were Democrats. Phillip Berg, a disgruntled Hillary supporter filed the first lawsuit demanding that Obama produce his mysterious birth certificate. And now with the blockbuster news from Breitbart.com we learn that Mr. Obama was the very first Obama birther. It turns out that Obama claimed he was Kenya-born before he claimed he was Hawaii-born. "The great thing about irony," writes David Foster Wallace, "is that it splits things apart, gets up above them so we can see the flaws and...

    Back in the mid-1990s, I lived in Chicago's Hyde Park neighborhood. My wife was a medical student at the University of Chicago and I worked as a newspaper reporter. I didn't know it, but also living in Hyde Park a few blocks away was a fellow just a couple years older than me named Barack Obama. At the time, he was a part-time lecturer at the University of Chicago Law School, and I'm sure that at one time or another we crossed paths. I had no idea who he was, and unless he was a regular reader of the Chicago...

Simon Reading the extraordinary revelation about Barack Obama’s youthful literary career on Breitbart.com [1] — that his agents published a promotional book in 1991 with a bio of Obama saying he was born in Kenya — set my old mystery writer mind ablaze.How could that be? Why would they think such a thing?There are only two forks in this road — either he was born in Kenya or he wasn’t.I have never been a conspiracy theorist and will assume the latter, although I have to confess that for the...

    DENVER –Colorado Congressman Mike Coffman is apologizing for comments he made at a fundraiser last weekend when he asserted that President Barack Obama is “just not an American.” But the damage has been done. Coffman, thought to be a safe bet to hold onto his seat this November, has given his underdog opponent, state Rep. Joe Miklosi, an opening by questioning President Barack Obama’s “American-ness” during a campaign speech last weekend. “I don’t know whether Barack Obama was born in the United States of America. I don’t know that,” Coffman said at the event Saturday in Elbert County. “But I...

    A state official in Arizona has asked Hawaii for verification of the information on Barack Obama’s birth certificate, the document that Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s special investigative team has concluded may be a forgery. Members of the Surprise, Ariz., Tea Party, who petitioned Arpaio to investigate Obama’s eligibility, say they are awaiting word from the state secretary of state regarding whether Obama’s name will be on the 2012 presidential ballot in Arizona. Secretary of State Ken Bennett had promised to ask Hawaii officials for verification of Obama’s documentation, vowing that if answers are not forthcoming, Obama’s name will not be on...

    The Mississippi Democrat party just filed a motion to dismiss a ballot challenge in from Orly Taitz on behalf of a couple of Mississippi voters. The motion, which is more than 200 pages contains a citation and copies from every known so-called "birther" case that has been filed. Also, in this challenge, they they seem to think this satisfies the Federal Rules of Evidence in regard to self-authenticating documents. The actual idea behind that rule is to submit certified copies of records to the court so that the documents can be inspected by all parties to ensure they contain the...
  • $10,000 bounty offered online for Obama college transcripts

    A faceless organization calling itself “The Trenches” is offering a $10,000 reward to anyone who can provide an authentic copy of President Barack Obama’s course transcripts from his days at Occidental College, Harvard University or Columbia University. “You’ve failed, media,” an undated statement on its one-page website reads. “You’ve had over three years to vet President Barack Obama. Yet in three years in office and over a year of campaigning beforehand, you have either been oddly uninterested or purposefully ignorant of Barack Obama’s educational history.”

    Here's the deal... Many legal analysts and scholars agree with this take-- and until the Supreme Court weighs in.. this is how the law is interpreted: The Constitution requires that the president be a "natural born citizen," but does not define the term. That job is left to federal law, in 8 U.S. Code, Section 1401. All the law requires is that the mother be an American citizen who has lived in the U.S. for five years or more, at least two of those years after the age of 14. If the mother fits those criteria, the child is a...

    According to the Constitution, to be eligible for the presidency (or vice presidency), a person must be a “natural born citizen” of the United States. The purpose of this restriction is to prevent a foreigner from becoming the nation’s chief executive. How can people become U.S. citizens? There are just two ways; either they are born citizens or they become citizens later in life. In the first case, anyone who is a citizen by nature of his birth is a “natural born citizen.” In the second case, anyone who is a citizen of another country at birth, but is granted...

    Sheriff Joe Arpaio says he’s talked to members of his state’s congressional delegation about his Cold Case Posse investigation that suggests there was fraud in the creation of Barack Obama’s birth documentation that was released by the White House in 2011. The investigation also concluded that Obama’s Selective Service registration is the same – a forgery, leading to the obvious question of what happens if Obama legally cannot be president. But he’s seen no results. Now, tens of thousands, perhaps hundreds of thousands, of people are going to see whether Congress ignores their concerns, too. It’s because of a new...

    by John HillStand With Arizona The Obama Administration has shown themselves to be a bunch of bullies. Obama's Attorney General thinks nothing of bullying states like Texas and South Carolina - blocking their popular voter ID laws on phony "racism" claims. Obama himself recently even tried to bully the Supreme Court over his healthcare takeover, arrogantly ignoring 209 years of judicial precedent in a naked attempt to intimidate. But they seem to have met their match in Sheriff Joe Arpaio. The Administration, particularly the Justice Department and its Civil Rights Division, has declared total war on a man who is...
