Birth Skeptics

A Question of Citizenship

Obama May Have
Eligibility Problems

Posted on April 30,2011

President Barack Obama has a past and his unwillingness to share it with the American people is astounding. Most of his past is kept shrouded behind legal barriers. A reasonable person could ask why? Why would this popular president object to others knowing about his past? Why would he object to revealing the name of the hospital where he was born or his college records? Could it be that the birth skeptics are on to something?

Skeptic's Version: Obama's mother was in Africa and very pregnant. She was so far along that the airline would not board her. Her only alternative was to have Barack at a local hospital in Kenya and then proceed to Hawaii.

This is plausible because Barack's birth certificate is the 'short form', which doesn't include the normal items found on a birth certificate originating from a hospital. Missing on Obama's birth certificate are such items as the attending physician, and the name of the hospital. But, short form birth certificates are legal. A child not born in a hospital, home-births for instance, have to have a mechanism to obtain a birth certificate. For that reason, I believe the short form birth certificate provided by Obama to be genuine, but I do have a few issues with it. Click here to see the issues I found with the short form document.

Other questions about Obama's citizenship bubble to the surface about his childhood in Indonesia. Barrack's mother married an Indonesian who reportedly adopted Barack. He was then known as Barry Soetoro, and at that time was enrolled into an Indonesian school as Barry Soetoro. Little things, such as college enrollment, funding for college, and pertinent data relating to his university years would satisfy the doubters about his eligibility to serve as president.

The Berg Complaint:
Those of you who are interested in the details of the doubts surrounding Barack Obama, I have included the filed complaint made during the 2008 presidential primary by Philip Berg. Philip is a practicing attorney and a Democrat out of Pennsylvania who investigated Obama. He filed suit to have the courts force Obama into revealing his personal information. This link will take you to that web page. I recommend that you read the full complaint to orient yourself as to why so many feel like Obama is not eligible to serve as president.

Other Notes:
The lawsuits (and there are many) against Barack Obama have never been argued before a judge. All complaints have been dismissed on technical grounds and therefore not judged on their merit. It seems that the legal system is not interested in preserving the constitution. Upholding the constitution is the fundamental obligation of the government. If there is a legitimate question about Obama's citizenship, then there should be a hearing to decide with finality the answer to the question.

Apparently, Obama was not vetted properly by the DNC, or these questions would not still be around. The subject seems to be toxic to anybody who brings it up in any public forum. Recently, Lou Dobbs of CNN has been criticizing publicly Obama's failure to produce any of his school records or his 'long form' birth certificate from a Hawaiian hospital.

According to an article in report, Jon Klein the President of CNN stopped Dobbs from further assertions with an email stating:
"In 2001 - the state of Hawaii Health Department went paperless. Paper documents were discarded The official record of Obama's birth is now an official electronic record Janice Okubo, spokeswoman for the Health Department told the Honolulu Star Bulletin, 'At that time, all information for births from 1908 (on) was put into electronic files for consistent reporting,' she said."

Lou Dobbs had to go on the air and repeat the statement in an effort to give finality to the flap over Obama's legitimacy as president. Ultimately, the long time business reporter had to leave CNN over the incident.

It was after the public retreat from the issue by Dobbs, that Janice Okubo of the Hawaiian Health Department issued this statement:

"I am not aware of any birth certificate records that have been destroyed by the department. When the department went electronic in 2001, vital records, whether in paper form or any other form, [were] maintained. We don't destroy records. ... Any records that we had in paper or any other form before 2001 are still in file within the department. We have not destroyed any vital statistics records that we have."

Her statement highlights the audacity and lengths that the left will go to prevent Barack Obama from having to prove his eligibility to be president.

In another twist to this strange saga comes the latest salvo from the complainant's. I received this email on Sept. 16th ,2010: It is about a federal judge in California who refused to grant a summary dismissal in favor of Obama, instead he took the issue of Obama's eligibility a little more seriously than other judges concerning Obama's eligibility to be president. With great fanfare, the birthers spread the word that a federal judge was actually going to hear the case. You can almost read the enthusiasm in the following email. (I edited the email for length, not content.)

Email content:
"I and many other concerned veterans and citizens attended the hearing today in Federal Court in Santa Anna in the lawsuit against Barack Obama to determine his eligibility to be President and Commander in Chief. About 150 people showed up, almost all in support of the lawsuit to demand that Obama release his birth certificate and other records that he has hidden from the public.
Judge David Carter refused to hear Obama's request for dismissal today, instead setting a hearing date for Oct. 5, since Obama's attorneys had just filed the motion on Friday. He indicated there was almost no chance that this case would be dismissed. Obama is arguing this lawsuit was filed in the wrong court if you can believe that. I guess Obama would prefer a "kangaroo court"! Assuming Judge Carter denies Obama's motion for dismissal, he will likely then order expedited discovery which will force Obama to release his birth certificate in a timely manner (if he has one).
The judge, who is a former U.S. Marine, repeated several times that this is a very serious case which must be resolved quickly so that the troops know that their Commander in Chief is eligible to hold that position and issue lawful orders to our military in this time of war. He basically said Obama must prove his eligibility to the court! He said Americans deserve to know the truth about their President!
The two U.S. Attorneys representing Barack Obama tried everything they could to sway the judge that this case was frivolous, but Carter would have none of it and cut them off several times. Obama's attorneys left the courtroom after about the 90 minute hearing looking defeated and very nervous.
Great day in America for the U.S. Constitution!!! The truth about Barack Obama's eligibility will be known fairly soon - Judge Carter practically guaranteed it!"

But in the end, the judge granted dismissal to Obama with a 30-page ruling that was summed up with the following:

"Plaintiffs request asking this Court to sweep away the votes of over sixty-nine million Americans with the stroke of a pen and order a new election during which the country would be in a state of turmoil, ignores the Constitution's processes and separation of powers that were developed by the founders."

So another judge ignores the constitution and kicks the can down the road. This news illustrates a feckless judicial system when it comes to tackling thorny issues. Failing to hear the arguments on any legitimate constitutional issue is a violation of the oath they took to uphold the constitution. The issue of Obama and his eligibility is a hot potato and most judges do not have the courage to give standing to the individuals suing. Their lack of courage leaves the wound open and festering. Standing is a tool that can be used by judges to shrink from their duty, especially when it comes to controversial issues. But this issue will not go away. If Obama should prove to be ineligible, he would be known as a usurper, and all legislation signed by him would be vacated since he was not a legitimate president. Wow!

The Conclusion to all of this may just be a tempest in a teapot. I will point out to all of you birthers, this may be about a man who just wants to maintain his privacy and a large serving of crow could be in your future.

New Revelation: Since the above was written, Obama has presented yet another birth certificate. Preliminary examination show a number of quirks or questionable items that I have included in this weeks submissions.
