    Updates in the BARNETT v OBAMA case in Judge Carter's court: Request for investigation of misconduct in legal proceedings, submission of perjured affidavits, submission of a letter to court by an attorney with improper purpose of covering up criminal activity and obstruction of justice, withholding evidence by attorneys, and US attorneys acting under conflict of interest From 11.11.09. to 11.22.09.

    WASHINGTON PROWLER SPECULATES THAT OBAMA IS RUNNING SCARED by John Charlton (Nov. 17, 2009) — Yesterday, The Post & Email reported that Mr. Paul Tsukiyama, Director of the Office of Information Practices — the very office overseeing public complaints regarding the Hawaii Department of Health’s refusal to release public documents or information regarding Obama’s alleged vital records kept by that department — resigned quietly on Nov. 6th, and that no one knew where he went. Yesterday, The American Spectator also spoke about resignations, and speculated about their motives, but these regarding a place on the opposite site of the country:...

    Was President Obama born out of wedlock in 1961? The question has been rekindled by the publication this month of "Barack and Michelle: Portrait of an American Marriage" by former Time magazine contributing editor Christopher Andersen. Andersen has raised once again the question of whether Obama's parents were ever officially married, writing on page 25: "On February 21, 1961 – a Thursday – Barack Obama and Ann Dunham were reportedly married in a civil ceremony on the island of Maui, although there are no official records showing that a legal ceremony ever took place." Dunham was a teenager, 18-years-old, when...

    LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - A Lubbock woman is suing President Obama. Dr. Penny Kelso of Lubbock and other members of the Tatriot's Heart Media Group claim that Obama's real name is Barry Soetoro. They claim he is an Indonesian citizen and therefore not entitled to be President. Dr. Kelso has not returned a call from NewsChannel 11. Meanwhile, the local chairwoman of the Democratic Party says the lawsuit lacks merit. "The birth certificate is signed, sealed, and delivered. And there's simply no debate. But there is a sense of real desperation on the part of the extreme conservative fringe of...

    TAMPA, Fla. – An American soldier questioning the eligibility of President Barack Obama to hold office has had his latest legal challenge dismissed "as frivolous and wholly without merit." The Aug. 6 ruling by U.S. District Judge Richard A. Lazzara came less than two hours after motions were filed by Maj. Stefan Cook, a member of the U.S. Army Reserve who is seeking a firm determination whether the commander in chief of the Armed Forces is a "natural born citizen," a constitutional requirement for those holding the presidency. "There was no reasoning, no nothing," said Maj. Cook, who noted previous...

    Our current US President was a Great British citizen at the time of his birth. He then became a Kenyan citizen followed by what appears to be citizenship in Indonesia. Perhaps he is currently a citizen or subject of a nation other than the US. (That question will be the focus of my next article.) Obama’s own web site carried an admission that his birth status was governed by Great Britain. That admission was published by Obama’s Fight The Smears web site as quoted from a discussion of Obama’s UK citizenship written by The essay went even further...

One recipient of this COLB image was Factcheck, an organization funded by the same left-leaning Annenberg Foundation that also employed Barack Obama and former Weatherman bomber, Bill Ayers. In June 2008, Tommy Veitor, Obama's campaign spokesman, sent a scanned image of Obama's COLB to Factcheck, saying that "I know there have been some rumors spreading about Obama’s citizenship, so I wanted to make sure you all had...

    NEW YORK – The Kenyan birth document released by California attorney Orly Taitz is probably not authentic, according to WND's investigative operatives in Africa, though officials in Nairobi do not rule out the possibility President Obama may indeed have been born in their country. WND obtained several samples of Kenyan birth certificates in use around Aug. 4, 1961, the date of Obama's birth, showing differences from the Taitz document. She filed a motion in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California requesting the purported evidence of Obama's birth – both the alleged birth certificate and foreign records...

    Jon Chessoni, a first secretary at the Kenyan Embassy in Washington, can’t understand why his office gets so many baseless questions about whether Barack Obama was born in Kenya. “It’s madness,” said Chessoni on Monday. “His father, in 1961, would not even have been in Kenya. When this matter first came up, the Kenyan government did its research and confirmed that these are all baseless claims.” Nonetheless, Chessoni spent part of his day fielding inquiries about an image posted at the fringe conservative web site WorldNetDaily–a purported “certified copy of registration of birth” belonging to “Barack Hussein Obama II,” submitted...

    Ignoring the people who think President Obama isn’t a natural-born American didn’t make them go away, but Democrats haven’t been especially eager to engage in debate on something they generally consider to be illogical — if not looney. But clearly, the “birthers” got under the skin of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid . The Nevada Democrat complained Monday that the birthers have been getting too much attention. But he said it on the Senate floor — as high a profile venue as he has. “An artificial controversy is getting far too much attention lately, one that ignores the undeniable and...

    The state of Hawaii has made a series of procedural changes that would allow officials to destroy President Obama's original long-form birth certificate, concealing its contents forever.

    The evidence would indicate young Barack Hussein Obama was adopted by Indonesian citizen Lolo Soetoro after Soetoro and Obama's mother were married. The most convincing evidence is the Hawaii divorce papers filed in 1980 as Stanley Ann Soetoro vs. Lolo Soetoro. This document lists the couple as having two children. One is under the age of eighteen. That would be Maya Soetoro who was born in 1970. The other child is listed as over eighteen and in need of educational support. That would be Barry Soeroto (Barack Hussein Obama.) There are no other know children related to this marriage.

The tiger named Berani was discovered wandering around an unsecured area just before the zoo's opening on Thursday. A startled female volunteer reported the escape after the tiger brushed past her. The volunteer quickly retreated and secured a second gate that kept the tiger from going into a public area. It took zoo workers several minutes to coax Berani back into his cage.

Watada is trying to "make himself a martyr and a hero," said Robert M. Wada, a charter president of the Japanese American Korean War Veterans. He said Watada's actions disrespect a legacy of military service by Japanese-American soldiers dating back to World War II.

Linda Lingle signed into law a suspension of the cap that sought to keep the oil companies in check and give a fair price to customers.
