Is OCD a Delusion?

Is Obama Citizenship Denial a delusion?

The DSM defines a delusion as:

A false belief based on incorrect inference about external reality that is firmly sustained despite what almost everybody else believes and despite what constitutes incontrovertible and obvious proof or evidence to the contrary. The belief is not one ordinarily accepted by other members of the person’s culture or subculture.

Canadian journalist Robert Sibley has said that conspiracy theory is “a nihilistic vortex of delusion and superstition that negates reality itself.”

I invested some time the last couple of nights over at Politico.com hacking and slashing the onslaught of birthers (an investment that was about as profitable as the  shares of Charter Communications I bought). There was this one person, that was really odd. I would post a citation with the words “natural born citizen” in it and he would reply that what I said had nothing to do with “natural born citizen”. We went back and forth on this several times. He just couldn’t see the words. This is an example of a belief  “firmly sustained despite…incontrovertible and obvious proof or evidence to the contrary.” Was the guy delusional?

Those of us who study birthers and other citizenship deniers know that some of the arguments against Obama’s eligibility to be president sound plausible on the surface. “Obama’s COLB is a forgery because two digital document experts have sworn under oath that it is.” One has to dig a little to know that neither has even given a real name, much less sworn anything. Nevertheless, when web sites like this provide “obvious proof or evidence to the contrary,” we don’t convert anyone (that I know of).

So are the birthers delusional? Perhaps some are, but not in general. The reason is that there is a birther subculture that they live in, consisting of web sites that provide alternative views of reality, that supply skilled propaganda, that tie OCD to patriotism, that create a sense of urgency, and most important provide a sense of community.

Belief that the earth is only 6,000 years old or that Houdini will speak from the dead or that Barack Obama was born in Kenya are not delusions. They are just wrong.

    Thanks forall the work you do (sounds like one of those birther letters) on this issue. However having spent severals months following this back & forth i just cant believe this is not delusional !!
    Yes i accept that most pple that believe these theories do so because they want to believe something, anything bad against POTUS Obama & this helps them along those lines. But it still borders on delusions– when you cant beleive the most reasonable explanation but prefer to believe far fetched theories.
    Like the believe that a black African in 1961 would return home with a white woman (the very object of the oppression) & have her have achild in an hospital there !!!! its so out of this world i cant even imagine where it comes from except that most pple that believe this wherent born or where too young to know what travelling was like then.
    Also what would be Obama snr’s reason for taking his pregnant wife back to Africa in 1961 ?? To show her off or what ?? Remember he was a stuent who was sponored by others to US for his studies ??
    I think its hatred of POTUS Obama (not necessarily related to his colour) that is driving the delusion.

    I guess the birthers think he was anxious for introduce his new wife to his first wife, since his American bride would be so happy to learn that she was wife #2.

    I still can’t figure out how she ends up in giving birth in Mombasa, given that the best hospitals and the only international airport (at the time) were in Nairobi, and Grandma Sarah lived in Nyongoma Kogelo.

    its because you get it: he used African juju to transport everyone down to Mombasa & back home. you know African juju is very powerful, it can turn a white woman into a black man & vice versa. all this teleporting would have been a simple case of killing 29 white goats, 13 black sheep, 8 grey doves, 2 lions & 1800 ants & wala everyone is beside the bed in Mobamsa.
    Though there was a problem as its said African juju cant travel over water so Hawaiian juju must have been mixed in to effect the flight

    This story might be a place to add some comments about the “delusional” things I see from time to time. This morning I was prompted to visit a blog called Actions by T and an article there titled: Obamas Real Birth Certificate. The information supposedly came from a “password protected” area of the Texas Darlin web site.

    This article from October 2008 says:

    “Obama’s Real Birth Certificate In Republican Hands…

    Soetoro is the name on Obama’s Birth Certificate (BC) because a new BC was issued when he was adopted by Lolo Soetoro, his step-father. His original BC, which we assume was issued for Barack Hussein Obama at birth, would have been sealed at the time of the adoption.”

    But if Republicans had this document, whey didn’t they use it? If Obama were adopted in Indonesia, it wouldn’t result in the sealing of his records in the United States, and of course they aren’t sealed because Obama obtained and published a birth certificate.

    The article is full of other fanciful, but false ideas.

    You know like when some pple wanted to catch Jesus & had him surrounded but he just slipped through there hands & they didnt know how !!!! (we did that too)

    That why we’re not worried, our juju is strong & the force is with us (just like with Luke skywalker, we did that too)

    Well, I don’t believe Obama was born in Kenya, I don’t believe the Earth is only 6,000 years old, I don’t believe Houdini will speak from the grave, I don’t believe the COLB was a forgery, and for the most part, I don’t believe that I belong to any subculture, subgroup, or community that are called ‘birthers’.

    I do believe, as Obama believes, that he was born with dual-citizenship. Therefore, IN MY OPINION, that precludes him from being a Natural Born Citizen at the time of his birth. Now – I could be wrong. I know you are all gasping at that statement. But by the same token, you all could be wrong in your assumption that his US Citizen mother and US soil birth makes him a Natural Born Citizen. What does the fact that I question the legal meaning of Natural Born Citizen make me a ‘birther’?

    I do believe there is no clear cut meaning of what the Constitution is referring to as Natural Born Citizen; therefore, it needs to be clarified one way or another.

    If you believe the Constitution is fully on his side and he is truly a Natural Born Citizen, why wouldn’t the ‘non-Birthers’ want this issue put to rest? For that matter, why wouldn’t Obama want it put to rest?

    Again, I could be wrong, but the only reason I can see for Obama followers to fight this tooth and nail, as I see happening on this blog, would be because you have some question as to what side the Constitution will come down on. And if you have questions – it needs to be resolved. If you don’t have any questions – why give it any credence by discussing it?

    I know – I’m just whackadoo!

    Considering that people on the Obamacrimes site are already claiming the Hawai’i archives have probably been broken into and a forged vault copy inserted, how would one put it to rest?

    Your opinion on the definition is as valid as anyone else’s – except for the twelve SCOTUS justices who’ve chosen not to get involved.

    Chester A Arthur’s parents were still British citizens at the time of his birth. The mother of Herbert Hoover’s VP (I forget his name) was a citizen of a Native American nation which meant she wasn’t a US citizen under the laws of the day.

    I would make a clear distinction, as you do, between “birthers” — those who believe impossible or highly implausible things about where Barack Obama was born, and those who have an opinion about the definition of “natural born citizen” that makes Obama ineligible under the Constitution.

    The latter is not an irrational opinion. I strongly feel that it is “fringe” (minority) opinion, at least among lawmakers and the courts. I strongly feel that is an opinion that would not prevail, should it ever be adjudicated. I believe some “made up facts” are cited by some of its proponents, but a cogent argument can be made (as Leo C. Donofrio has done). I do think this position gets a little nutty when its proponents say Chester A. Arthur tried to “cover up” his father’s emigration status (Arthur’s father was a British citizen when Chester was born).

    Sally, thank you for your clear comment.

    The reason that this issue was not “put to rest” before the election is this you are expressing a minority view; historically it has been assumed that “natural born” means “born in the USA” and that the citizenship status of the parents or possibility of dual citizenship is irrelevant. Obama wasn’t the only candidate with this issue — for example, Bill Richardson’s mother is a Mexican citizen; Ralph Nader is the son of Lebanese immigrants. The Constitution uses the phrase “natural-born” without any reservation or proviso.

    That there is potential ambiguity in a law does not mean that the courts are required to rule on it. IF there had been a pre-existing Supreme Court ruling that said that individuals in Obama’s circumstances were not “natural born citizens” — then Obama would have been bound by that ruling.

    But in the absence of any ruling by an American court, then the presumption is that Obama is eligible. The issue could have been litigated by someone with standing to raise it at an appropriate time, but it wasn’t.

    I think that rival candidates would have had standing to seek a determination BEFORE the election — the time to do so would have been before the nomination. Hillary Clinton could have gone to court before the Democratic Convention seeking to enjoin Nancy Pelosi from certifying Obama as eligible — and the case probably would have been heard.

    But I think Clinton would have lost that case, and since she and her husband are Yale law grads I think they clearly knew that.

    The reason that it is a loser of a case is that there is no case law in American jurisprudence that supports that argument. Donofrio’s arguments, citing back to de Vattel, may look appealing to a lay person — but any lawyer would know that they have zero value as legal precedent — he might as well be arguing based on his interpretation nursery rhymes or ancient Sumerian law.

    In the absence of legal precedent, the “natural born citizen” clause is going to be interpreted broadly, rather than restrictively, by any court that ever considers a relevant claim. There is just no good reason to do otherwise, because the words themselves do not apply any limitation. So there simply would be no legal grounding to read in additional requirements that are not stated in the words used in the Constitution.

    There simply isn’t any way around this. Again, I understand the appeal to lay people, but you’ll note that no reputable or established lawyer or scholar has argued or advanced anything along the lines of Donofrio’s argument.

    The US Supreme Court did cite de Vattel in Dred Scott v Sandford and the dissenting opinion in US v. Wong Kim Ark did also.

    Expelliarmus March 5, 2009 at 12:37 am #

    Actually I believe de Vattel is quoted only in a concurring opinion and a dissent in Dred Scott.

    But my point is that the quotation of a source like de Vattel not constitute legal authority. There is a difference in jurisprudence between “quoting” a source and “citing” a source.

    Again, this a mistake that lay people often make, because they don’t understand the hierarchy that courts work under. It is permissible to quote from any literary source for rhetorical purposes — for example, from time to time the Justices of the Court quote Shakespeare., as do lawyers in their briefs… but Shakespeare is not precedent nor authority.

    It is no accident that quotes from de Vattel or Shakespeare or other rhetorical flourishes are more likely to crop up in concurring opinions or dissents, as the Justices feel more free to wax poetic when they know they are not themselves writing an opinion that can be cited as precedent for anything else.

    (A dissent or concurring opinion can be useful for gaining insight into an opinion, but those opinions also have no precedential value — only the majority opinion of the court can be cited as precedent in future cases).

    Can Denofrio quote from de Vattel in his briefs? Certainly. He can recite poetry if he wants. Or quote from the Bible. Whatever.

    Can the Supreme Court rely on de Vattel to deviate from the implications of Wong Kim Ark or Perkins v. Elg? Absolutely not. It has no value whatsoever as precedent and because it does not reflect the decision of a court it is not proper legal authority.

    Even Vattel acknowledges British common law which assigns citizenship based on place of birth (Jus Soli). He just, without more argument, seems to consider such an approach inferior. Sadly enough for him the founders and the courts since then disagreed.

    For that matter, why wouldn’t Obama want it put to rest?”

    This seems to be much better. Let the detractors waste their efforts on something that isn’t there. Then expose them for their silliness. Obama is a great strategist. Just look at Rush Limbaugh and the RNC who predictably were nudged by Obama into a no-win situation.

    And even if Obama were to show another certificate, the doubters will just make up yet another reason why he should be removed as legitimate president. See, this is not really about the constitution, it’s all about Obama’s policies and some people’s dislikes. However that hardly gives them legal standing. It certainly does not give them much public respect.

    Nothing would “put it to rest”.

    If Obama obtained and produced a so-called “vault copy” of his birth certificate, the birthers would label that a forgery as well.

    If his attorneys agreed to allow a court to render a decision, that would be used as a justification for depositions and discovery, and the minute that Obama’s lawyers objected to anything, no matter how far-afield, his detractors would loudly denounce him for a “cover up”.

    (Already you see this happening in California, with attempts to subpena his records for Occidental –the next thing would be to go after high school records, records at Columbia U & Harvard, property records for all the places Obama or members of the Dunham family ever lived, attempts to get Obama’s passport file opened, depositions and interrogatories seeking his entire travel history, etc.)

    It’s not going to stop. These cases are fueled by people who are out to destroy him and they don’t fight fair.

    It’s been pointed out her previously that EVERY President is sued hundreds of times by lunatics and by bored Federal prisoners who figure that gettign a day trip to a Federal court for a hearing beats another day in general population.

    Bush 43 for example was sued by a woman who claimed he was repeatedly breaking into her house at night and raping her.

    I think I already saw a case where Obama’s being sued for “falsely” claiming to be African-American when he’s actually biracial. I think Beyonce Knowles is named as a co-defendant in that suit.

    As I understand the general policy is not to respond to any frivolous lawsuits because it simply encourages more.

    The birther suits are being treated exactly like the ones demanding Obama turn over the alien autopsy records.

    It is being used in the interpretation of “original intent”. Essentially all of the arguments (at least the ones that avoid plain misreading or logical fallacy) put forward against Obama’s eligibility on account of his dual citizenship at birth are about original intent of the Constitution (or in the case of Wong, original intent of the 14th amendment).

    Nothing would “put it to rest”.

    When I did my historical investigation in to the genesis of the “born in Kenya” story, I read many comments on blogs just prior to June, 2008. Many were then saying that the release of a birth certificate would settle everything. In June Obama released a birth certificate, and the rest is history.

    Expelliarmus March 5, 2009 at 11:31 am #

    “original intent” wouldn’t be in issue as to anything that was already resolved by the majority in the Wong Kim Ark case. The Court doesn’t go fishing for “original intent” in every single case — they get to that AFTER evaluating precedent if the question is still unresolved for them. And then they are going to look first to the writings of the framers -de Vattel wasn’t one of them, he’s just one of many writers they would have been familiar with. So Donofrio’s argument is that the framers were influenced by de Vattel — but they were influenced by a lot of things. British common law and Blackstone’s Commentary would be given more weight.

    But Wong Kim really looked rather exhaustively at the question, and there is a very practical limit as to how far you can go down the “original intent” path when applying the law to an African American President. (For a real stomach-turning experience, try actually reading the Dred Scott opinion). Obviously the framers of the Constitution were thinking “citizen” meant “white male” — and just as clearly we have to read that provision in light of the 14th Amendment and contemporary standards.

    As far as I know, Donofrio could not come up with a single US court decision to bootstrap a dual citizen or foreign-born father exception onto the phrase “natural born citizen” — and de Vattel’s comments are focused on jurisdictions that followed a jus sanguinis approach to citizenship, when it is clear that the US has followed the British jus soli approach, so de Vattel is inapt to begin with.

    And, logically, it is just a dumb idea: It gives foreign powers a veto over who Americans can choose to be president.

    If Monaco passes a law saying all U.S. citizens (and their offspring) are automatically citizens of Monaco, under Donofrio’s theory, who can become president of the U.S.?

    Exactly. Let us not forget that a great many of the people devoted to the COLB conspiracy have simply moved from one conspiracy to the next: from closet Muslim to Sinclair (remember the CAACR ad?), From Rezko plots to Odinga plots, from “Whitey” tape to API tape…and on and on.

    Part of living under the rule of law is accepting that one’s opinion will not always prevail.

    “If you believe the Constitution is fully on his side and he is truly a Natural Born Citizen, why wouldn’t the non-Birthers’ want this issue put to rest?”

    The U.S. Supreme Court has consistently denied the birthers’ petitions and the Chief Justice swore Obama into office (twice!). The issue has been put to rest.

    No, he was and still is an Indonesian citizen, or maybe you guys missed the fact that his mother remarried?-an Indonesian man named Lolo Saetoro. So little Barry moved to Indonesia and subsequently was adopted and went to school as a citizen of Indonesia.

    Next, I notice YOU DID NOT DENY WORKING FOR THE GOVERNMENT, ‘DOCTOR’! And I’m rebutting my tail off, because as I said before, I don’t believe false-opposition gatekeeper blogger hacks, I read the PENTAGON’S OWN DOCUMENTS!

    I’d like to see the evidence that President Obama was adopted by his step father. All I’ve ever seen is a handwritten notation in a school record that listed his last name as Soetoro. I’ve never been shown adoption papers of any kind. I know children who went by the last name of their stepfather, but were never legally adopted and therefore the name they used was never their legal name.

    In a nutshell, educational records, including transcripts, are considered private records. Much like a birth certificate.

I could see you clowns camped out on the door step of some 80 year old ex proffesor who taught Obama 30 years ago. Idiots from World Net Daily would put words in their mouths for their own explotation. Thanks Mr. President fro sparing as many people who knew you when.

    Did you even proofread your first comment? You admitted he was in school in Indonesia while simultaneously admitting the country doesn’t allow for dual citizenship!

    You can’t have it both ways, Jack!

    Yes you can since you do not have to be an Indonesian citizen to go to their schools.
    What the facts show is that Obama attended school in Indonesia and that Indonesian law does not allow for Obama to have gained Indonesian citizenship. Furthermore, even if Obama had acquired Indonesian citizenship, he nor his parents could have denounced his natural born US citizenship status.

    Them are the facts.

    You are ridiculous, dude. Keep collecting that government paycheck, troll!

    Lacking evidence and reason one resorts to ad hominems. Well done.

    Demon Cleaner, I’m not a handwriting expert. Are you? That’s what I thought. But the difference in style is totally different, and no expertise is needed. However, if you would like to press the issue SOME EVIDENCE please.

    As I said before, Indonesia does not allow dual citizenship (this is discussed on this web site in the article Hollister v. Indonesian Citizenship Law) and the US does not allow expatriation of children, therefore, Obama could never become a citizen of Indonesia. Further, there is no evidence Obama was ever adopted by Lolo Soetoro, but in any case, Indonesian law prevents a child from acquiring the citizenship of his parent through adoption when over the age of 5 unless there is a procedure in the country of current citizenship for renunciation of said citizenship, which there is not. That’s the famous Indonesian Law No. 62.

    I deny working for the government. All you have to do is ask.

    What Pentagon document are you reading? Got a page number? And exactly what did you get from Obama’s book – page number please.

    The idea that only Indonesian citizens could attend school is just something the denialists made up. If you would like to provide us a Pentagon document (or any other documentation) that says it’s true we can discuss it further. In the Hollister lawsuit Berg cites a section from the Indonesian Constitution, but if you read it there’s nothing that supports the claim. The Indonesian Constitution does say that Indonesians have a right to an education, but it never excludes education for non citizens.

    I am fascinated, though, by all these references to Pentagon documents, White House or Government Documents. Please give us some specifics.

    The doc is the one with which I want to discuss the 2nd. Let me see that bearded mug near my home and somebody is going to need some “re-education” You boys know what that is, right? I’m sure such well-molded intellects have read Orwell’s “1984‘

    I prefer the Cliff notes version also known as ’84

    Actually Former Marine is preferred to ex. Unless you want to die for the price of oil, all Marines should now be Former.

    It would be a good start if the military would wisen up and realize that it was sent into war based upon the non-existence of weapons of mass destruction and other myths. That’s unforgivable.

    I hope you find the evidence and reasoning here compelling. But you see, with a real PSY-OP, you’d never be given the chance to say things like that. This, Tim, is what we call “Free Speech” and the articles are what we call “reasonable argument” and the information here is sourced and treated fairly as to context.

    As for your tax dollars, you too can have a web site just like mine for $5.95 a month. The software is free. (Yes I said $7.95 in another article. They’ve lowered the price when you pay in advance.)

    I hope you find the doctor’s lack of evidence here compelling. You see with a real PSY-OP you’d never be given any alternatives but mine and they are right, because I say they’re right. And I should know because I’m running a PSY-OP on you but I’m not, but if I were, it would be for your safety.
    This, gentle reader is what we call “double-speak” and the articles are what we call “verbal flailings in an attempt to thwart free-thinking and persuade the crowd to go back to watching American Idol” and the information we totally invent and is sourced solely by egomania and treated as fairly as a detainee at Guantanamo.

    As for your Tax Dollars, Bill Benson PROVED with his 2 Volume Colossus The Law That Never Was’, the 16th Amendment was NEVER PROPERLY RATIFIED!

    Suck it, trolls!

    Nice one, P11

    Darn, the phone hidden in my left shoe suddenly started ringing. A level one psy-ops intervention is in progress. Batten down the hatches, dive dive dive.

    USMC Warrior and Promethius11 are the same writer. Self congratulation?

    Maybe you do have that dissociative thingamajig.

    Most of them know. But they’re stuck in a nightmare where you never know who’s gonna shoot you so you stay ever-paranoid and vigilant. To do otherwise could be fatal.
    If Obama would bring them back immediately like he said he would, then we could prosecute this rogue criminal government.

    Yes, this kind of persistent paranoia for survival can make adjusting to ‘normal life’ often quite complicated.

    If Obama would bring them back immediately like he said he would, then we could prosecute this rogue criminal government.

    Cheney may not appreciate the prospects.

    Is Prometheus11 coyly threatening you? Amazing that these neanderthals like to resort to this kind of thing when their delusions are revealed. They’d rather fight than see the light.
