Hawaii Homelands declares Short Form GOOD ENOUGH!

Obama COLB

Obama COLB

Those trying to keep alive the doubts about Barack Obama’s birth certificate make a big deal about the difference between birth certificates Hawaii used to issue and the ones they issue today. So what is the difference in the validity of the Certificate of Live Birth and the Certification of Live Birth?

When we spoke to a spokeswoman for the Hawaii Department of Health, she said too much was being made of the difference between the so-called “long” and “short” forms.

“They’re just words,” said spokeswoman Janice Okubo. “That (what was posted on the Internet) is considered a birth certificate from the State of Hawaii.”

“There’s only one form of birth certificate,” she said, and it’s been the same since the 1980s. Birth certificates evolve over the decades, she said, and there are no doubt differences between the way birth certificates looked when Obama was born and now.

“When you request a birth certificate, the one you get looks exactly like the one posted on his site,” she said. “That’s the birth certificate.”

As for the theory that Obama’s original birth certificate might show he was foreign born, Okubo said the “Certification of Live Birth” would say so. Obama’s does not. Again, it says he was born in Honolulu.

PolitiFact.com

Location of Birth

Holdouts, pointed to an obsolete web page on the Department of Hawaii Homelands web site that said the “long form” was preferable for them. However, reflecting the fact that long forms are no longer available, the DHHL web site has been updated and now says:

“The Department of Hawaiian Home Lands accepts both Certificates of Live Birth (original birth certificate) and Certifications of Live Birth because they are official government records documenting an individual’s birth. The Certificate of Live Birth generally has more information which is useful for genealogical purposes as compared to the Certification of Live Birth which is a computer-generated printout that provides specific details of a person’s birth. Although original birth certificates (Certificates of Live Birth) are preferred for their greater detail, the State Department of Health (DOH) no longer issues Certificates of Live Birth. When a request is made for a copy of a birth certificate, the DOH issues a Certification of Live Birth.”

Department of Hawaiian Home Lands

The reason for the preference for the long form is based in the criteria for the HHL program, having at least 50% native Hawaiian ancestry — defined by a date before which the parent must have lived in Hawaii. The long-form birth certificate the parent’s birthplace and age (which the short form lacks). With the birthplace and age it is possible to prove the Hawaiian ancestry requirement.

    my daughter was born in Hawaii, so I am aware that this has been true for a long time. But it makes no difference to a Birther, especially those that say “his sister was born in Indonesia yet she has a Hawaian BC” (false story, but when does a false story stop a Birther)

    when our resident (and ignorant troll) kept demanding the “long form”, I gave him the phone number to the Hawaiian records agency and said call and check, you can easily prove this issue, yet he would not. As you are all aware, Birthers are adverse to the truth and would never check a real source, only their LSS source. (LLS = Lying Sack of S___)

    In the Why-doesn’t-he-just-show-his-birth-certificate? department:

    “All they have to do is to invite reporters, call up the program to produce the COLB from his ‘original’ birth certificate, as it exists in their database, and then let the document print. Hot off the presses, publicize THAT document to the world.

    That’s what I want to see. IF the Hawaiian database produces a document that EXACTLY matches the data that’s on that image at FactCheck, and SO LONG AS THE DOCUMENT HAS PASSED THROUGH NOBODY’S HANDS BETWEEN THE PRINTER AND THE REPORTERS, then I will be satisfied.”

    Bullcr@p. You’d find something wrong with that document too. The State of Hawaii keeps telling you they don’t issue the long form anymore, accept it, get over it. You read it yourself, the long form might contain more information for genealogical purposes. What part of Pres. Obama’s genealogy are you interested in examining that you don’t already know? What more information do you think you need to assess his eligibility other than his place of birth? And why do you think it is your right to assess his eligibility at all? It’s already been done, by the people who actually do assess eligibility, the FEC, the DNC, the Electoral College and the Congress.

    I wonder to myself why birthers want more information about Obama than for any other President and I now believe it’s what a commenter here said the other day ” Black men always have to show more identification.” I think the birther motives are just that simple: you want to harass the black man. You people are sick.

    Great post. You don’t know how many times I’ve pointed out to people that the certificate specifically says “LOCATION OF BIRTH HONOLULU”. For some reason, that birther theory that he was born in a foreign nation and only the “other” birth certificate would show that works for a lot of people who don’t actually look at the document he posted and notice that it specifically says where he was born.

    A birther once told me that the short form did not list location of birth at all. I guess he never actually looked at a birth certificate before.

    I’d also like to add that I was born abroad to an American mother and my certificate clearly says “location of birth: Ontario Canada” or something like that (it’s not from Hawaii by the way but you get the idea).

    It doesn’t matter. Orly is telling her cultists that Obama can never be NBC, because of his father.

    She flatly stated that both parents must be citizens, for a president to be NBC.

    Birthers will never accept Obama, or Jindal for that matter. I can’t wait to see the firestorm when Jindal announces. Popcorn…

    Farah is saying that it’s fake now because he’s trying to gin up business to sell more of his ‘Herbal Remedies” and colon cleansing products he hawks on his site. He’s an attention whore and no a source of ‘news’ in any sense. Conveniently, he’ll accept ‘donations’ to put up billboards, fedex petitions, etc, must be a good income in being a birther.

    Nah, then the Birthers will simply say that the Hawaiian Government is “In on it” and faking his birth data. Ignoring this, and fighting it where necessary are the best courses of action President Obama can take. The miute he gives in, and triesd to provide anything else to them, they’ll want more, never accepting the overwhelming proof that President Obama IS eligible to be President.

    For Farah and WND it is all about the money…They certified Obama’s BC but they have never retracted or acknowledged that article. However the realy reason they ignore that they did confirm the BC is because they are soliciting “donations” for their innane billboard campaign and they are supporters of Orly. Remember Farah employs Jerome Corsi who wrote a book about Obama that has been discredited and he and other writers make up negative stories abot Obama. WND is to news like WWE is to sports…a joke.

    If you can stand crap and read World Net Daily, you can see how some of the individuals that are making money off the birthers and the whole BC controversy continually seek to rile up their base. They write obvious inflamatory articles about Obama in order to get people worked up and willing to donate to “the cause” So even with this article along with all of the others that have proved all of the birther assertions to be false, it will do no good. They want to believe in conspiracy theories rather than what make sense.

    For instance see the following article from one of their writers Ellis Washington…He not only compares President Obama with some dictators, I looks like he is advocating some sort of a revolution. They will all claim that they are trying to save the Constitution, but with all of their rantings and writings they seem to want to do the opposite. That seems to be borderline treasonable at best but Obama and his followers are the traitors and Orly and her bunch are the patriots…

    http://worldnetdaily.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=102691

    “The key phrase here is: “it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bonds which have connected them with another.” I call that passage the exclusionary clause that any healthy representative democracy or republic must maintain as a last resort when any of its branches of government – executive, legislature or judicial – become unresponsive or even tyrannical to the will of the people. We see these despotic regimes in evidence with Chavez in Venezuela, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in Iran, Zelaya in Honduras and Obama in America. Therefore, it is the sworn duty of We the People, as a civilized body under this social contract, to overthrow any unconstitutional government by force if necessary and re-establish a constitutional one based on the rule of law, liberty and Veritas (truth).”

    Good old Orly was in Missouri at her “birther summit” and it seems like there are memebrs of that states GOP that have signed on to be members of her “Tin Foil Hat Brigade”…

    As usual she made are false statements…

    “Obama has failed to produce a true copy of his Hawaii birth certificate; the birth documentation he has produced may be a forgery; Obama may have forged his selective service documents; he may have as many as 25 social security numbers; one of those numbers may have originated in Connecticut and indicates he’s over 100 years old; he may have enrolled at Occidental College as a foreign exchange student; he may be guilty of wire fraud, social security fraud, mail fraud and other unspecified fraudulent acts related to his presidential campaign and various charitable organizations; and he may have held closed-door meetings with the U.S. Supreme Court in which he intimidated them into rejecting any cases challenging his citizenship.”

    And of course she expressed concern this afternoon about the Saudi Arabian ownership of FOX News, Hugo Chavez’s ownership of voting machine software, ACORN’s new office inside the White House, and Obama’s obvious loyalties to Kenya and Indonesian.

    Actually the fold lines are on the COLB scan. You can barely make them out if look closely. However, Obama COLB Scan is still invalid because it lacks a Certificate Number. The Scan has been altered which makes it invalid.

    As for the Fact Check COLB, Fack Check is an Obot organization that can’t be trusted.

    Although Fact Check claimed they saw a hard copy, that copy has disappeared and has never been made available again.

    Further, Fack Check failed to produce a formal detailed report on their examination and produced nothing more than some fuzzy photos and few a points about the COLB.

    Much of what FactCheck says about the COLB makes little sense.

    “FactCheck is an Obot organization.”
    More proof that no matter what he showed, you maroons would find something wrong with it.

    No one ever claimed the scan of the document was meant to be a substitute for the physical document. In hindsight, the Obama campaign should have said that they had provided the COLB to the proper individuals in the FEC, the DNC, the many states, and told the birthers to bugger off. But that is not how your President rolls. The man is a consensus-builder and his nature is to try to be inclusive, not to tell his constituents to bugger off. He and his campaign underestimated your pettiness.

    SvenMagnussen:

    “They’re just words,” … hmmm!! Hasn’t the O-bprter hisself used that very same quote (and then said just the opposite when it suited his purpose)??

    And – let’s be correct here – the image on the pro-O websites (FightTheSmears.com, etc.) is not “just the same” as the computer image on his site since the REAL BC (or even the REAL COLB) is a paper document and not a computer image that is – and obviously has been – easily altered. You are attempting to put words in Janice Okubo’s mouth that she never said.

    The fact that the actual COLB (not the computer image) does not have any additional information beyond what is shown on the website is meaningless since neithewr the real or imagined COLB (which, mind you, has never been presented in court for more rigorous examination) is merely a selective extraction of data from the actual vault copy BC. If you read her statement more closely and the passage you present from the changed DHHL text it is clear that the vault copy BC contains more date – and that’s precisely what is needed … the real vault copy. In court, the phony (or even the real) COLB is merely prima facie material and has been challenged – big time. It (the COLB) certainly won’t make it through a court trial.

    Having said that, the real BC is merely a necessary but not sufficient piece of evidence to merely prove his claim of being born in HI along with other pertinent pieces of vital statistics. I suspect he may have been born there – but none of the public know that for certain.

    The real issue is the presidential eligibility under the Constitution since he has already admitted to being governed by the British Nationality Act of 1948 at birth since his pappy was never an American citizen. It will all come out in court at some point.

    I believe that HI has always been the most communitst-infested and way-far-left liberal state of the 50 and they don’t seem to have changed. Frank Marshall Davis and the other bolsheviks who agitated there would be proud of their handiwork.

    “As for the Fact Check COLB, Fack Check is an Obot organization that can’t be trusted.”

    John- you have anything to substantiate this claim? Does that mean the articles in Factcheck that dispute statements made by Obama can’t be trusted either?

    Have you ever looked at articles in Factcheck? They look at what people say and try to determine whether they are true or not- and Obama has not been immune(could any politician?)

    Finally a statement made by Factcheck that you will never see on WND:

    “The e-mail’s last paragraph advises that everyone who goes to Snopes.com for “the bottom line facts” should “proceed with caution.” We think that’s terrific advice, not just in connection with material on Snopes but for practically anything a reader finds online — including articles on FactCheck.org. The very reason we list our sources (as does Snopes.com) and provide links is so that readers can check things out for themselves.”

    I know the Birthers think that any website that doesn’t support their claims is in the pocket of President Obama, but really, really- show me an organization that does a better job than Factcheck or Snopes at debunking false claims. I haven’t found one yet.

    There is no evidence that the computer image has been altered. There you go again with these unsupportable accusations. I have looked with great detail at the certificate and compared it with available photographs and certificates of others. People have seen and held the certificate, used both scanners and cameras.

    The real issue is the presidential eligibility under the Constitution since he has already admitted to being governed by the British Nationality Act of 1948 at birth since his pappy was never an American citizen. It will all come out in court at some point.

    It need not wait for the courts since Obama accepted that in addition to his Natural Born birthright to the US, he was temporarily a natural born citizen of the United Kingdom as well. However, by returning to the US before reaching age of maturity he continued his US native born citizen birth right.

    We also don’t know how the Vault Copy Birth Certificate is derived.

    I am beginning to suspect Obama was not born in a hospital which why he won’t release it.

    No hospital has ever came forward to date to state Obama was born there.

    More importantly, no person has yet to come forward to give a coorborating account that Obama was born in the hospital he said he was born in.

    No doctor, no nurse, no staff worker. No one has come foward with a credible account.

    It is hard to believe that everyone would be dead since Obama was only born 47 years ago.

    I believe the Vault Copy is probably based a statement from Stanley Ann Dunham.

    Since Dunham is dead there is no way to coorborate her account and there no way to conclusively prove that Obama was in fact born in Hawaii.

    Since Dunham is dead there is no way to coorborate her account and there no way to conclusively prove that Obama was in fact born in Hawaii.

    Since both the scan and the photographs show that the COLB indicates Obama born on US soil, the case is closed.

    “I believe that HI has always been the most communitst-infested and way-far-left liberal state of the 50″

    Yeah- the clearest example is that well known communist Senator Daniel Inouye- not only does he have a foreign name- but he fooled everyone by volunteering in WW2 and getting a medal of honor and being maimed defending his country, even while other Japanese Americans were being detained. This sleeper has been just waiting for his opportunity to lead the glorous Communist revolt in Hawaii.

    Clearly all the other residents of Hawaii are his fellow travellers. I think JTX has finally figured it all out- Obama is a product of a statewide Hawaiian Communist conspiracy. They searched in the 40′s and 50′s looking for the perfect infant to carefully groom for the Presidency.

    After approval of the Communist Overlords in the Soviet Union in 1960, they decided to have a half white/half African Black boy created and named with the unthreatening name “Barrack Hussein Obama”. They actually flew the boy from Kenya on a Soviet Stealth Cargo plane and airdropped him to the awaiting agents in Hawaii. They planted those newspaper birth announcements.

    As part of the charade, they sent the young Barrack to Indonesia to be educated in Moslem schools, figuring this would endear him decades later to the Moslem loving Americans. Even though he did return to the United States to go to High School and College, he eventually he settled in Chicago and attended Church for 20 years, all this time pretending to be a Christian.

    Finally in 2008, the Communist Party of Hawaii achieved its dream. Barrack Obama is now in office- a puppet of Daniel Inouye and the Hawaiian Politburo. Their only concern is that deep in their hearts- they know he is a secret Muslim…..

    Funny how you, just before, spoke of twisting people’s words…

    I have not moved on, I have argued that even if he were not eligible, the only way to remove him from office is impeachment.

    That you were not familiar with the doctrine of de facto officer was somewhat surprising to me, that you refuse to revise your earlier comments in light of this is just well…

    I like hearing about your dreams but the reality is that the next opportunity to have President Obama ‘removed’ from office is 2010 (midterm elections Congress), and 2012 when Obama faces re-election

    It’s called HIPAA. Hospitals cannot just come out and say, “So and so was treated here for this” without a specific release from the patient. Furthermore, if Obama actually did give the release, which he is under no obligation to do, HIPAA may still prevent the hospital from saying that he was born there, because that would be disclosing information about a different patient: Stanley Ann Durham.

    What part of privacy don’t you understand?

    Furthermore, there was a Dr. Rodney West that said that he remembered the birth of Barack Obama, just because of the unusual name of his mother (how many Stanley’s do you know that give birth?) So, Dr. Rodney West, that would satisfy your “doctor, nurse, staff worker”. Even though he did do that, it was probably a violation of HIPAA for him to even say that.

    As far as your little theory that it was based upon an account, you have no evidence to prove it. Basically that’s like saying, “I say that it equals 2 plus 2 equals 5. Therefore, there’s no way to prove that 2 plus 2 equals four.”

    As far as the Federal Government is concerned, the State of Hawaii is concerned, and every governmental agency is concerned, Barack Obama was born in Hawaii. This is proven by his birth certificate, which has been confirmed by the State Department of Health as “…a valid Hawaii Birth Certificate.” The Birth Certificate is evidence in of itself of what the State has evidence for.

    For you to state that, then you’re also stating that there is no way for anybody from Missouri, or any of the other states that just issue short-form birth certificates, to prove their citizenship to “conclusively prove” their citizenship to you. Therefore, if you’re for impeaching Barack Obama, then I also state that you throw out every single politician who was born in the State of Missouri, or any other state that just issues a short-form birth certificate. All of them have simular laws to handle at-home births, and births that happen outside hospitals. So, therefore, there is no conclusive way to determine whether or not they’re actually citizens.

    Furthermore, every single voter who was born in the state of Missouri should be disqualified, because there is no prove to identify whether or not they are actually citizens of the United States.

    You are attempting to put words in Janice Okubo’s mouth that she never said.

    Oh, the irony.

    real or imagined COLB (which, mind you, has never been presented in court for more rigorous examination)

    Courts don’t “examine” documents; they entertain objections from the litigants. Any objection that could be raised in a court of law may also be raised in the court of public opinion. There have no been meritorious objections.

    is merely a selective extraction of data from the actual vault copy BC.

    The COLB, however, “selectively extracts” the data relevant to Obama’s eligibility: He was born in Honolulu (and thus Hawaii, and thus the United States), and he’s over 35.

    If you read her statement more closely and the passage you present from the changed DHHL text it is clear that the vault copy BC contains more date

    Any additional data on the vault copy not on the COLB is simply not relevant to the eligibility issue.

    – and that’s precisely what is needed … the real vault copy.

    Hawaii state law explicitly says the COLB is sufficient.

    In court, the phony (or even the real) COLB is merely prima facie material and has been challenged – big time.

    There is no competent evidence challenging the validity of the COLB.

    It (the COLB) certainly won’t make it through a court trial.

    As there’s no competent evidence to challenge the COLB, it would in fact be dispersive in a court trial (which will never happen, by the way).

    Bob: There is no competent evidence challenging the validity of the COLB.

    Well said. In fact, the COLB is admissible evidence and the burden of proof shifts to the plaintiffs to show that it is somehow fake. Since the COLB is clearly an official Hawaiian document with seal and signature, all that the plaintiffs can do is challenge the accuracy. But all it takes is a DOH official verify the information.

    That’s it… Game over.

    The COLB shows Obama born on US soil and thus natural born.

Between jtx’s “wait till courts see this” to heavy’s “he will be gone in 30 days” all we get from these people are ignorant rants. There’s Polarik claiming the blocked out BC number actually invalidates the original and Birthers eat it up, how stupid.

    John – Regarding Factcheck, here are a few facts:
    “Birthers” claim that Factcheck is related to Obama because they are run by “Annenberg”, allegedly connected to the Chicago Annenberg Project that Obama sat on. But, here are the facts:
    1) Chicago Annenberg Project dealt with educational opportunities for innercity children, separate from Factcheck and the “Annenberg Public Policy Center” that provides a tiny bit of funding to Factcheck
    2) The Annenbergs were Republicans. In fact, Mrs. Annenberg was a Reagan diplomat. That is why John Sydney McCain happily displayed the fact that she had endorsed him (and funded his campaign) on his website, to counteract Gen. Powell’s endorsement of Obama by showing he can get diplomatic endorsements.
    3) Factcheck has been around since the 1990′s, and has factchecked Obama as well as McCain, Gore, Kerry and Bush. Tell me again, HOW exactly is Factcheck an “Obama” website?

    John:

    I am beginning to suspect Obama was not born in a hospital which why he won’t release it.

    And what difference would that make? Article II does not make birth in a hospital a criterion for eligibility to be POTUS.

    No hospital has ever came forward to date to state Obama was born there.

    They are prohibited from doing so by the Health Insurance Portability and Privacy Act (HIPPA). They were however not shy about coming forward to state that Obama provided them with a “work around.”

    http://www.kapiolanigift.org/centennial.aspx?id=1728&ekmensel=c580fa7b_256_292_1728_5

    More importantly, no person has yet to come forward to give a coorborating account that Obama was born in the hospital he said he was born in.

    That’s why we have birth certificates. So we don’t have to worry about the memories (or deaths) of witnesses.

    It is hard to believe that everyone would be dead since Obama was only born 47 years ago.

    And yet, we know that many people are. Obama’s mother among them.

    My daughter was born 10 years ago. I would be shocked if anyone from the hospital remembers her birth besides my wife and myself.

    And what previous president has had to prove the validity of their Birth Certificate? Or even produce a Birth Certificate? Where were these people when George Bush or Bill Clinton were elected- why weren’t they clamoring for birth certificates?

    I would put it down to politics, except that these same folk hated Bill Clinton at least as much, but they only accused him of killing people, but never demanded to see his Birth Certificate. Why did he get a pass? I am sure that Heavy was busy writing letters to the editor asking why no one was investigating Vince Fosters murder, and JTX was writing to his congressman to ask why the courts wouldn’t rule on whether Vince Foster was murdered or not. But Birth Certificates? No one even mentioned asking about birth certificates. What could be the difference…..

    John, you seem to be making some unusual interpretations of language.

    If I went on vacation, and took a picture of the Grand Canyon, then upon my return showed the picture to friends and said “that’s the Grand Canyon”, they would know exactly what I meant. They would not think I was crazy for confusing a canyon with a photo. Normal human beings understand and work with representations of things all the time, there is never any confusion. And if I cut out the face of my ex-wife from the photo, no one would say that this alteration makes the picture somehow “not the Grand Canyon”.

    So why does John not understand it when Gibbs says that Obama’s birth certificate is posted on the Internet, or think that a little black box over the number makes it “not Obama’s birth certificate”?

    Normal human beings also understand that if someone (who we’ll called “John”) accused you of altering your picture of the Grand Canyon, you would ask for proof that there’s a difference between the actual Grand Canyon and your picture of the Grand Canyon.

    And if John said he heard your picture was a fake from this other guy, who calls himself “Dr. Ron” (but “Ron” isn’t really his name and “Ron” can’t prove he’s really a doctor), normal human beings wouldn’t take much stock in John’s (or “Ron”‘s) opinion.

    Actually, TaynaD, Bill Clinton did. He claimed to be born in Arkansas. Just as George W. Bush claimed to be born in Connecticut. Just as George H.W. Bush claimed to be born in Massachuttess, and Ronald Reagan claimed to be born in Illinois. I’d consider Barack Obama to be a “Native” American, as much as I’d consider Bill Clinton, Ronald Reagan, George Herbert Walker Bush, Jimmy Carter, Richard Nixon, Al Gore, Dan Quayle, and anybody else who has occupied the offices of the President and Vice President.

    In fact, the only two Presidents/VPs that claimed to be anything that deviated from the narrowest interpretation of the Born in the United States definition was Al Gore (born in D.C.) and Charles Curtis (born in Kansas, before Kansas was a state). Charles Curtis was actually the guy who could claim true Native American Ancestry.

    Are you some of the “real Americans” (and, one might add “fake patriots”) who voted for a man without even knowing whether he was eligible or not … and are now too cowardly to join others in determining eligibility in a proper legal proceeding???

    Nope, as with most Americans who voted for Obama, I consider him to be a much better choice than the alternatives, and in fact one of the best choices in recent history. When people raised the specter that Obama was not born in the US, I was pleased to see the COLB which shows him, as expected, born in the US.

    Since eligibility was established by the appropriate powers, I have no reason to insist on violating the Constitution and require our President to prove himself eligible once again.
    The people have spoken, the electoral college has spoken, congress has certified and found him qualified, SCOTUS has sworn him in.
    In other words, a duly elected President and by all credible standards born on US soil and thus a natural born president.
    Of course there are a few, sore losers, who insist that Obama somehow failed the eligibility requirements, even though no evidence of such has ever been shown. Furthermore, once duly sworn in, these few sore losers insist on ignoring the Constitution and have the judiciary or the military remove a duly elected President.

    Sorry jtx, you lost fair and square. But no worries, you have another opportunity in 2010 and replace the Congress and in 2012, when Obama is up for re-election. And there is nothing you can do about it until then.

    Nothing. Other than perhaps whine. And why I generally do not appreciate whining, I am somehow amused by your lack of reason and logic which underlies your continued whining.

    They are requesting his records from kindergarten…Why? What could that possibly have to do with whether or not President Obama is qualified to be President? And his baptismal records? I mean does it get to a point where it becomes ridiculous?

    What I love is the request for his attorney client list – like that’s not a complete violation of attorney rules. Why don’t we start asking for Orly’s creds? I want to see her naturalization papers, her school transcripts, her visas and passports, her baptismal record, her attorney client list and dental patient list, her bar exam results, a list of all lawsuits she has ever filed with complaints attached. Anymore??

    It’s not about whether he’s qualified to be President. It’s about harassing someone that doesn’t fit their image of an all-American, apple pie, white, anglo-saxon, baptist President. It floors me that they don’t see a real all-American story in Pres Obama’s story. A man with a view beyond the usual lily-white, picket fence, silver spoon upbringing. “Good Gawd ya-ll! The man grew up in such non-white, non-Christian places as Indonesia and Hawaii! His mother even got ( gasp) food stamps! We can’t have this! ” Look at the Obama family, you can’t get more all-American than that! These people are sick, dirty little racists and as time goes on, they are dropping the veil more and more.

    Actually, it is probably not a per se violation — many clients don’t consider it a secret that they’re being represented.

    It is all very Whitewater-esque: Ostensibly, it is a search for eligibility verification, but in reality it is a fishing expedition for Obama’s proverbial Monica.

    Kimba & thisoldhippie, I could not agree with you more. I can fathom what those records have to do with anything. Like you said if we started demanding the same info from Orly, Berg, and Swensson, I am sure they would find ways not to release it. People will say that “they are not running for President”, but first of all Obama is the President. And although he is the President, he is still an American and has rights, like the right to privacy.

    I find it funny that anyone that does not agree with the birthers is considered a communist and an America hater. The birhters should sit back and evaluate what they are doing. They are the people that are following a Russian, Orly, born in the Soviet Union, as she attempts to overthrow our Constitution and advocates people to rise up in armed insurrection against the duly elected Persident of the US.

    Since the birthers like to make up stories and theories about Barack Obama (Indonesian refugee for one), I have decided to join in and make up one for them.

    It starts out based in the 60’s and 70’s when the USSR and the Communists decide to errode the United States from within. So they brainwash a young girl and after years of going through this process, plant her in the US. This girl grows up to be a delusional woman with limited grasp of English and barely passable dental skills, becomes an effective sleeper agent. She eventually settles in California. Even though the USSR has fallen, she is still in place. Fast forward to 2008. This sleeper agent, who has now attended an online unaccredited Law School so she is under the delusion that she is an licensed attorney, is activated by Putin to stir up the masses against the new President to weaken the US.

    The sleeper agent has become an avowed hater of immigrants and Muslims, has found a way to try and cause problems for the US by attacking the current US President because of his ethnic background and foreign name. She alligns herself with other fringe individuals and right wing publications (like WND) and starts this “birther movement”. These people request a BC that has already been released, come up with new interpretations of the US Constitution, and start demanding that the President release a bunch of personal documents. In addition they get these grand jury nutcases to “issue presentments” against the President. They are attempting to casue chaos throughout the US. However they are being fought by a bunch of patriots that understand the Constitution and what it stands for. A battle between good and evil.

    So what do you think? This birther movement has about 250,000 (I am being generous with the number) people out of 305,000,000 that believe in this nonsense. That is less that 1% of the population. So that dastardly plot by the Russians has not fooled a majority of true Americans.

    I know, that scenario I just outlined is pretty farfetched. However it is no more farfetched than the “conspiracy” that the birhters want to believe. A birth in Kenya that no one can remember or document, flights from Kenya to Hawaii that cannot be found, fake birth certificates, falsefied announcements in newspapers, and other stuff to numerous to mention.

    Maybe we can start this internet campaign to make sure that our country is safe from this Soviet interloper. Who is with me?

    no Dummy, its not all about the BC. That’s just the story you follow because you have enough conviction to win that ignorant subject. And you and your five friends just about outnumber the people that give a damn about it anymore.

    It’s about his poor policies and ruining a country. Yes, there are only a few people still chasing the BC story, Let Em’, and You just keep laughing at them and keep focused on just that one…what’s your favorite word…passe’..issue. While the real story you fail to realize is the building numbers of people standing against Obama and his pathetic ideas and cabinet. With your BC Blinders on you want to laugh and say there are only a “few” people against this Dictator, when in fact that is far from the truth.

What I’m beginning to believe is Obama voters Like socialism, they like being told by the government what they can and can not do. They care more about what is GIVEN to them than about the Constitution. They think they have rights just because they exist.

    The best speaker at last nights Tea Party was a 60+yr old black man, who directed half of his speech to black people, saying they better do their homework, study history, and realize that Obama and Washington are lying to you. Look for the video in a few days.

    Let’s just see documented evidence of eligibility in a court proceeding and if yu have it, why not turn it over to one of the many courts involved so we can see whether it holds up in real life??

    And you misstate what has been said. Neither I nor anyone else says a case not yet heard on merit proves (or disproves) eligibility. We wish to know, however. In addition, the actual BC itself is merely a necessary but not sufficient bit of evidence in the matter since the guy has already admitted his daddy was not an American citizen nor died he become one. Whether you like the idea or not, there are plenty of valid, honest questions about this man. Too bad you never either lived in Nazi Germany or can understand the expericnces related by those who did.

His “super-grand-jury” of 172 was all repeat customers. He said he has another 170 waiting in the wings. So 4 months after the first grand jury, they have only drummed up less than 500 people? Even when they don’t even have to get out of the barcolounger to participate? They think 500 people are going to over-turn the will of the 130 million who voted on Nov 4th? Delusional. At RSOL there are more anti-birthers commenting than birthers. People’s boredom during the winter’s bad weather gave way to their summer activities with family and other real live people. I’ll bet unique visitor traffic is way down on all the birther sites. Are there still any tea-baggings tomorrow?

    You also miss the point that the various attorneys pursuing their cases under the laws of this country are doing so legally, are not running for public office, and have no requirement under the Constitution to be a “natural born citizen” (or even a citizen for that matter).

    The O-borter, OTOH, agressively pursued the job he now holds, has never met his obligation of showing that he is eligible under the NBC clause but has sworn under jurat notarization in writing and signed that he IS eligible and meets the Constitutional requirements. Having sworn that legally he now must put his money where his mouth is since any court will require evidence of that sworn statement. You won’t find any serious court saying “… OK Mr. O-borter – we know you wouldn’t fib …”.

    The Constitution says very clearly that the way to remove a sitting President is by impeachment and conviction of the Congress. Continuing to pursue avenues outside the Constitution to re-dress your grievance shows it’s not about the Constitution to you people.

    Whatever you think about his eligibility, Pres Obama IS the legal President by the 12th amendment. Oh,there’s that Constitution again!

    He’s eligible. He was born in Hawaii in 1961. Natural born citizen and over 35. And you still have been unable to prove otherwise.

    If you were concerned about the Constitution, you birthers would all have shifted your focus to petitioning Congress. Failing to do so, when you claim to know your Constitution shows your aim is purely to harass and diminish Pres Obama. You’re dirty racists who can’t stand having a black man in the White House.

    However, the suggestion that Obama is ruining this Country is in many ways on par with the mentality of Birthers and lacks somewhat in reality.

Those that have a problem with his policies that mix that with the status of Obama’s citizenship, (like you) devalue any legitimate debate they have about anything. There are issues I have with some of his policies, but part of the Birthers tactic stems from some warped thinking they they can overturn elections, overturn 6 months of policies on the hope that some court is going to compel Obama to prove anymore than he has, and in doing so expose the Bithers dream that he is of Kenyan birth.

    I just went to your website; I’m impressed.

    Look, you are well educated, we are both Jewish, and both native New Yorkers. I’m triple: New York City, New York County, New York State.

    The only way to remove a president, whether de jure or de facto is by impeachment. Obama got 78% of the Jewish vote, mine included. Obama got 80% of the general vote in Philly and Pittsburg, so he carried the state.

    The right wing which you are aligning yourself with is riddled with white nationalists, anti-Semites, theocrats, mysoginists, anti-tax radicals and assorted other kooks. Andy Martin is an avowed anti-Semite. Orly is willing to overlook that, but she and Berg do not realize when they are no longer useful, the people like Martin will turn on them.

    Obama’s policies are the best for Israel in the long term. A two state solution is the only solution. Jews have Israel, the Kurds have carved out their land from Iraq, so the Palestinians want theirs. I have several Arab friends. They are not Jew haters. I will send you an e-mail about it.

    70% of Iran’s population is under 30. An attack could ignite WWIII. And the retaliation against Israel will be horrific. They’ll unleash Hezbollah and Hamas for starters.

    If Israel attacks Iran’s reactor, the fallout will kill at least 1,000 people immediately, and thousands more from radiation poisoning. What do you think the mullahs would do? They would not attack Israel initially because they do not want MAD. They are not that crazy. BTW, Mousavi is not much better than Ahmadinejad.

    We are fortunate to have Obama as president. After 8 years of Bush, it’s pleasant. I am tired of him and his evangelical coterie. I am tired of his championing ignorance. He made the worst military blunder in US history, and thousands are coming back missing eyes, limbs, with 3rd degree burns and psychiatric cases – for nothing except a chance at Iraq’s oil. BTW, depleted unranium shells are causing horrific injuries to US soldiers and Iraqi civilians. They should be banned. Google it. It’s worse than Agent Orange in Vietnam.

    I wrote this before: Obama will be re-elected, and Corey Booker will follow. As an artist, you should want liberals – not the right wing with their anti-progress evangelicals. BTW, evangelicals love Israel but hate Judaism and Jewish culture. And they want Israel to be destroyed in Armageddon so Jesus will come back. Some friends.

    Of course none of the 18th or 19th century Presidents would have a BC as we think of them today, because more than likely they had midwives in attendance. However I had no idea that Jimmy Carter is the FIRST U.S President even born in a hospital. Reagan, who was President after Carter was delivered by midwife, in his parents apartment in Tampico, Ill. So the only Presidents who were born in hospitals period are Carter, both Bushes, Clinton, and Obama. Perhaps Reagan’s story needs reexamination. Maybe he was really born in Canada, then spirited back into the states after his birth. Sounds as plausible as Stanley Obama taking an international flight from Kenya with Baby Barack.

    Here is an interesting article from PoltiFact that I believe was referenced earlier. Notice the response from the Department of Health spokewoman and about how the locals know where Obama was born…

    http://politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/2009/jul/01/worldnetdaily/birthers-claim-gibbs-lied-when-he-said-obamas-birt/

    Exerpt:

    “They’re just words,” said spokeswoman Janice Okubo. “That (what was posted on the Internet) is considered a birth certificate from the State of Hawaii.”

    “There’s only one form of birth certificate,” she said, and it’s been the same since the 1980s. Birth certificates evolve over the decades, she said, and there are no doubt differences between the way birth certificates looked when Obama was born and now.

    “When you request a birth certificate, the one you get looks exactly like the one posted on his site,” she said. “That’s the birth certificate.”

    As for the theory that Obama’s original birth certificate might show he was foreign born, Okubo said the “Certification of Live Birth” would say so. Obama’s does not. Again, it says he was born in Honolulu.

    Another exerpt:

    “We have one more thing we’d like to add. We talked to reporter Will Hoover, who wrote a well-researched story for the Honolulu Advertiser on Nov. 9, 2008, about Obama’s childhood years in the the Aloha State. It ran under the headline “Obama Slept Here.”

    In researching the story, he went to the microfilm archives and found the birth announcement for Obama. Actually, he found two of them, one in his Honululu Advertiser on Aug. 13, 1961, and in the Honolulu Star-Bulletin the next day. They both said the same thing: “Mr. and Mrs. Barack H. Obama, 6085 Kalanianaole Highway, son, Aug. 4.”

    But here’s the thing. Newspaper officials he checked with confirmed those notices came from the state Department of Health.

    “That’s not the kind of stuff a family member calls in and says, ‘Hey, can you put this in?’” Hoover explained.

    Take a second and think about that. In order to phony those notices up, it would have required the complicity of the state health department and two independent newspapers – on the off chance this unnamed child might want to one day be president of the United States.”

    In Honolulu, the Obama tour buses take you by the old Kapiolani Maternity and Gynecological Hospital, now called Kapi’olani Medical Center for Women & Children. Federal laws prohibit hospital officials from confirming that he was born there, but Hoover said it’s common knowledge among locals.

    You notice how this article quotes actual officials and contained actual research. Unlike a lot of the birther hearsay, which is usually full of conjecture and innuendo…

    That could be true Gordon. After all, Illinois didn’t start required compulsory registration of births (i.e., birth certificates) until about 5 years after Reagan’s birth. So technically, Reagan’s was a delayed registration. Anyone could have put anything on that form. Anything at all.

    A book, claiming Arthur was born in Canada, was published while he was in office, but I have never seen anything in the newspaper archives [and I dug into the microfilm New York Times of the period] to suggest that there was any popular reaction to it.

    The problem is that the Constitutional issue is nonsense. Obama’s as Constitutional as they get. So if someone raises an issue which is utter nonsense, it is natural for folks to wonder what the “real reason” is. Racism, support for Israel, political smears, money raising scams and special interest issues are all things that “make sense,” while constitutional eligibility strains credibility.

    Thanks, and keen website research on your part. Hope you weren’t looking at some sharp looking CEO in Texas by the same name or something. haha. :-)

    As for Mr. Obama, I appreciate your opinions, however wrong they may be. And to continue and compare him with the previous President doesn’t make what he is screwing up look any better. Sure the Bush admin. had flaws and you can look close at the numbers which are easily scrutinized. But none of that makes Obamas tearing down this country and making it another poor Socialistic place to live any more ok, so stop comparing to the past.

    As for your future telling, anticipating he will be reelected, please don’t make ugly threats like that. Talk to any Canadian, ask them how the health care plan is going there. Talk to Cubans, ask them about the Suave, sharp speaking, elegant man that came unto them in 1959 much the same as Obama has here. Ask the Cubans what “Change” they got after Castro took over. Talk to all the steel workers that lost jobs because Unions screwed up and the companies moved overseas instead of paying the ridiculous Union Demands. Do you know ANYONE that went to an Emergency Room and was refused Emergency Treatment? Do you know ANY child that never received their inoculations? YET we’re to completely rebuild the best Health care system on the Planet for a small percentage of uninsured people?! NO, there won’t be a Holocaust, but when your 75 years old and told the 35 year old gets head of the line on surgery because your to old, remember Triple NY who you voted for.

    And by the way, how did Chrysler do after their bailout? Failed. How wisely is the rest of the 350billion being spent? You’ve NO IDEA, nobody does. Stand by for a $3000+ annual utility increase. NOPE, no new taxes, they just take your money many other ways. Well, No New taxes….YET.

    Funny how you seem to be looking at issue in either black or white. Compare the access to health care in the US with other countries. While Canadians and many others would complain about their health care system, I guarantee that not only would they refuse to give it up, but also would reject any system like the US where profit motives guide decisions over life and death.

    I know Obama, I know Castro and my friend, Obama is not even close to a Castro, neither in policy nor in practice.

    As to unions causing problems, yes, I am sure that Unions have to blame themselves to a certain extent but it is undeniable that without Unions there cannot be a middle class to speak of and that without unions, many wrongs would never be corrected.
    Unions are incredibly relevant in a balance of power between those who have the money and those who actually do the job.

    I understand that you are quick to make up arguments but I doubt that you possess the depth of understanding of these issues to really discuss them in any form or manner.

    If you refuse to learn from all sides then you have doomed yourself to fight a strawman or perhaps some windmills.

    The Congressional Budget Office report estimates that the proposed limits on greenhouse gases required by the House bill would produce a net additional cost to the economy of $22 billion a year by 2020, or an average cost per household of $175 after various cost-saving measures included in the bill are taken into account.

    Things get even worse, the Republicans base their estimates on an MIT study which shows nothing of the kind

    The claim that The American Clean Energy and Security Act, with its cap on carbon pollution, will cost families “$3,100″ was first made in a March press release from the National Republican Congressional Committee. The NRCC said its number was based on an MIT analysis of cap and trade legislation.

    Here’s what John Reilly, the author of the MIT study told Politifact about the NRCC’s claim: “It’s just wrong. It’s wrong in so many ways it’s hard to begin.”

    In two recent letters to House Republican Leader John Boehner, MIT’s Reilly asked that the NRCC stop using the “misleading” figure, noting that MIT’s estimates are less than one thirtieth of what the NRCC is claiming. “A correct estimate of that cost … for the average household just in 2015 is about $80 per family, or $65 if more appropriately staed in present value terms discounted at an annual 4% rate,” he said.

    Many Americans are under the delusion that we have “the best health care system in the world,” as President Bush sees it, or provide the “best medical care in the world,” as Rudolph Giuliani declared last week. That may be true at many top medical centers. But the disturbing truth is that this country lags well behind other advanced nations in delivering timely and effective care.

    Here are the some of the statistics the authors use to debunk this myth:

    * A 2000 World Health Organization analysis found that the United States ranked 32nd for infant survival, 24th for life expectancy, and 54th for fairness. Fairness was determined by comparing the amount of money a person contributes to health care with the quality of care received. Overall, WHO ranked the United States 37th.
    * A 2006 Commonwealth Fund report ranked the United States 15th out of 19 countries with respect to preventable deaths before the age of 75. The U.S. also ranked last in infant mortality out of 123 industrialized countries and tied for last on healthy life expectancy at age 60.
    * Despite its mediocre results in health outcomes, the United States spends more than any other country for its health care. In 2000, the U.S. spent 13 percent of its gross domestic product on national health expenditures. Next highest-spending countries: Germany at 10.6 percent and France at 9.5 percent.
    * The poorest fifth of Americans spend 18 percent of their income on health care, while the richest fifth pay only about 3 percent.
    * About half of personal bankruptcies in the United States are related to medical bills.
    * Three-quarters of Americans who declare medical bankruptcy had medical insurance when they became ill.
    * Hemodialysis offers an example of how the United States spends more and gains less than other countries. The U.S. has more hemodialysis centers per capita than other countries, but not necessarily better outcomes. “When end-stage renal disease patients were matched for severity of disease in Canada and the United States, patients in the United States were less likely to receive a kidney transplant and also had a higher mortality rate while on hemodialysis,” the article’s authors note.

Because that is exactly what your saying, that if a Republican reported it(not me) then it must be fluffed up lies. But when the Congressional Budget oFfice says it, then its correct. How STUPID. Don’t they work close with the same people that approved the FannieMae/Freddie deals? GREAT Number crunchers they were.

    Then you cut/paste that $3100 quote. BIG DEAL! What the world is that supposed to mean to me? I guess the man that reported it read a copy of the WND once, so HE is now not reputable. You said NOTHING, except I’m supposed to now “feel silly”. Should I also feel silly for wearing an orange shirt today NBC? It’s kind of the same relevance.

    “the Dictator in office now”

    He was fairly elected, and got more than twice as many electoral votes as McSame. If anyone trampled on the Constitution, it was Bush and Cheney.

    “Policies he pushes through in record setting time, not allowing anyone even time to read”

    Like the Iraq war resolution? Congress was stampeded, and anyone who spoke against it was called all kinds of insults.

    ” yet he takes vacation for days after before HE signs them”

    Like Bush spending weeks in Crawford? Talk about fiddling while Rome burns.

    “Policies that will Kill jobs, Raise taxes”

    Obama is trying to save the US auto industry because he does not want huge job losses. When Clinton was president, he oversaw the greatest run-up in the Dow’s history. When he left office, there was a $212M surplus. I agree with Obama: the tax code should go back to where it was when Clinton left office. Liberals tax and spend; conservatives borrow and spend. We are going to pay for Iraq for the next 50 years, just as we are still paying for Vietnam.

    Here are some gems from W: ‘We have learned from British intelligence that Iraq has attempted to obtain uranium from Africa.’

    ‘If we don’t act against Iraq now, we will be looking at a mushroom cloud.’

    Cheney: ‘Mohammed Atta met with Iraq intellignce in Baghdad.’

    In reply to “John’s” comment on July 2, where he doubts Obama was born in a hospital, then spouts the usual spam about why no Doc or KMCWC staffer remembers the birth: where does the Constitution require the name of the birth attendant? I was a Labor & Delivery nurse at Kapiolani & I’ll state that it is always a privilege to be present when a new life begins but, like any other job, it gets routine & I can only recollect a handful of deliveries I attended. My favorite anecdote about this: I was checking out at a store & the clerk kept looking quizzically at me. She asked what I did for a living & when I said I was a nurse, she recalled that I’m in the pix of her child’s delivery. Lord knows how many photo albums have pix of me bundling up or weighing someone’s newborn. Do I remember? No.

    Guessing Ann Dunham’s OB/GYN is a parlor game for nurses here in Hawaii. I hope we’ll know one day but we take HIPAA seriously & won’t compromise our ethics to satisfy the Birthers, who’ll just move the goal posts anyway. I have my own guess & his daughter is an OB/GYN practicing here. I’m sure she’d get a kick our of knowing her Dad was first to hold the future President. Fun supposition but it has zero impact on the fact that Obama was born in the USA & is a NBC. But keep trying John. I say send all your pennies to WND for those billboards.

For him, not having to worry whether he lost his health insurance when he lost his job was the big thing. He has had no complaints about the healthcare he or his kids have gotten in Canada.

    I have friends in Europe who say the same thing. Meanwhile, I know young people in the U.S. with no insurance, I know people in the U.S. who won’t change jobs because of heath insurance issues.

    When I hear these scare tactics about health care, I always wonder- who believes them. When they ask whether we want the government ‘rationing’ our health care- well guess what Medicare does that now and better than the ‘for-profit’ insurance companies who ‘ration’ my healthcare. Thats right- my healthcare is rationed by my insurance company. And they hate paying for anything.

    I love how the opponents of a universal healthcare system always talk about delays in medical treatment, refusal of medical treatment, the fact that people who are uninsured in the US can get medical treatment. Well, I can gurantee that these people have actually never been through the system. Your health insurance, if you have it, dictates your medical treatment. They can deny coverage for whatever reason they dream up and they can delay treatment while they review the request. Getting in to see a doctor in the US can take 3 or 4 months if you are a new patient because doctors can get away with making you wait. When my husband was unemployed and without insurance we tried to get him treatment for the flu. No such luck. No doctor would see us without $200 up front and the health dept. here only treats women and children, except they will give men STD tests. Our only option was the ER for which I am still paying the bill. So don’t tell me we have “the best healthcare system in the world.” You’ve just been lucky.

    You and many others on this blog do not seem to realize that the issue is not the BC at all (though that is a necessary but not sufficient part of the situation) but about the man’s Constitutional eligibility to hold the office he now sits in,

    After all, he has admitted that when born his father was never a US citizen and that he himself was governed by British law. That clearly makes him ineligible no matter where he was born, but it would be interesting to know, for example, if his name is really Barack Hussein Obama (I, II, II, etc.) or Barry Soetoro … or something else completely. Let’s be clear – no matter the vital statistice, this man has been known to lie BIG TIME.

    Thanks for the input, but actually my motivation has nothing to do with my like/dislike for the O-borter as an individual.

    My opposition to him stems from the fact that he has violated the Constitution and is not eligible for the office he was elected to. Many of those on this blog do not seem to realize that allowing such a fundamental violation of the Constitution will clearly obviate that document and the contractual relationship it serves between the government and the citizens of the country.

    For my money, both the major political parties are worthless as well as all 535 members of Congress now sitting since they have not done the job they gave their Oath to do. Debating and voting on each specific policy and act is truly a waste of time when the overriding basis that keeps us from mob rule (called a “democracy” – which we are not) is in the process of being destroyed.

    Actually, nothing could be further from the truth. The man has actually told everyone that he is ineligible when saying that his pappy was not (ever) a US citizen. The fact that few recognized that statement for what it really was does not make the man eligible.

    Since he is not eligible, there can be no “impeachment” per se as he has never been a legal holder of the office. There are other legal removal options than the ones you mention however. The 2012 elections are actually the least palatable of all of them.

    The man should be publicly shown as ineligible and should face the law for the crimes he will have been guilty of. Let’s not forget that he has sworn in writing that he IS a natural born citizen and is Constitutionally eligible. Considering that he says he’s a “Constitutional lawyer” he absolutely must know that he is NOT eligible despite his fans who will then protest that he “just didn’t know” or “was just mistaken in thinking he was elibible”. Sorry, that just doesn’t wash.

    You’re letting your racism overwhelm your common sense. The issue has nothing to do with race, political party, nor social views despite your obvious visceral hatred of Bush.

    It is about his lack of Constitutional eligibility and the corresponding violation of that document and its relation as the contract between our government and its citizens.

    “Qualifications” are not the same thing as “Eligibility” BTW and pretending that is the issue is utter nonsense.

    After all, he has admitted that when born his father was never a US citizen and that he himself was governed by British law. That clearly makes him ineligible no matter where he was bor

    When Obama was born on US soil he was born under US jurisdiction and thus a natural born citizen. When he reached the age of majority, he maintained his US birth right.

    What part do you not understand? And why do you insist on using non-Constitutional means to have a duly eligible President removed from power?

    It’s good to hear that the focus is shifting, quite predictably, from show me the birth certificate to “he was born to a foreigner”.

    Anyone familiar with the legal rulings from the early republic would realize that anyone born on US soil, even born to two aliens, is still a natural born citizen because he is born under the Jurisdiction/Allegiance of the United States.
    The founders of course understood that the diverse citizenship laws could cause children to hold multiple citizen-ships and as long as the child made a choice before reaching the age of majority, the birth right would be continued.

    He is duly sworn in and now only Congress can impeach him. That’s the Constitution my friend. Do you not care?

    jtx — your interpretation of the Constitution is simply out of the mainstream view. That is… it is NOT one that is accepted by Constitutional scholars (law professors) or by the vast majority of lawyers (including 100% of the lawyers who happen to be serving in the US Congress, and the various lawyers who ran against Obama in the primaries, such as Hillary Clinton, John Edwards, etc.)

    All the law professors, all the people in Congress, all the legal-trained candidates uniformly agree that born in the US = natural born citizen, no matter what the citizenship of the parent, and irrespective of any sort of dual nationality.

    The PROOF of that is simply that everyone has always known that Obama’s father was Kenyan — after all, Obama wrote a whole book about it before he ever ran for public office. Obviously if there were a LEGAL issue based on that, it would have occurred to someone to raise it.

    So it doesn’t make sense to say he is “clearly” ineligible: at best, you’ve got an argument that he may have been ineligible, if the courts adopted what is very clearly a minority view on how to interpret the Constitution. (After all, you have to admit that the Constitution doesn’t spell it out — all it does is use a phrase “natural born citizen” and the disagreement is over how to interpret that phrase).

    I wrote “may have been ineligible” rather than “may be” ineligible because the Constitution DOES say who should make the decision as to whether a President is qualified. That’s in the 20th Amendment, and it says CONGRESS makes that determination when they certify the electoral college votes.

    You have a legitimate ARGUMENT on the dual citizenship/parentage issue, but that is all it is: an argument, espousing what is clearly a minority view. That happens all the time in the law: people can disagree on how to interpret laws and the Constitution.

    But its a “past due” argument — it needed to be raised and asserted in Congress prior to the election. Because on January 8th, Congress made a binding determination that Obama was qualified to be President, and after that he was sworn in. So the Constitution has been followed procedurally — and under our system of law, procedure is what counts. (That’s what “due process” means: we can’t guarantee that the right decision will always be made, but we can guarantee that the right procedures were followed. So its o.k. under our laws if an innocent person is convicted of a crime, as long as they had a fair trial; and similarly if a guilty person is acquitted after a trial, they cannot be reprosecuted).

    I don’t know what you personally were doing before the election to raise this issue – but the point is, it can’t be raised now, at least during this term. It HAS to be raised through the political process, and again… its a minority view.

    Since the WEIGHT of authority is against you – and favors the view that “born in USA”=”natural born” — and since the vast majority of legal scholars and lawyers believe that born in USA = natural born, including published law review articles — Obama’s status as a Constitutional lawyer only refutes your point. Given his training, he would know that the law is on his side.

    You are the one who is grasping at straws to support your view, reaching back to long-since discredited court opinions like Minor v. Happersett or the Dred Scott case, or citing from a late translation of De Vattel, to frame your argument. A Constitutional lawyer like Obama would know that the courts look first to the most recent decisional law, not the oldest.

    So if Obama was going to do what lawyers and law professors do to research the issue, he’d start with Perkins v. Elg and move forward in time (not back) — shepardizing the case to review other authorities that have cited to it.

    Orly and her delusional followers are at it again. They have a top 10 posting on President Obama documenting why he is ineligible to be President. The amusing part is how as usual they are relying on universially discredited informatiion to support their delusionals. It goes to show you that no matter how many times you provide proof that their beliefs are wrong, they are still determined to believe in their delusions. The best part is how they footnote the information to make it look more believable. And some of the places they cite as a source. They should have just used WND, it would have been as credible.

    Top Ten Things That You Should Know About
    Barack H. Obama’s, (a/k/a Barry Soetoro) US Citizenship

    1. He may not be a natural born citizen qualified to serve as President under Article II of the Constitution

    2. He is a suspected illegal alien for two possible reasons

    3. He took elected office and was admitted to the Illinois Bar under an alias
    He admits he was born to an American mother and a British subject, suggesting dual citizenship at best. [1]If he was not born on U.S. soil, and his mother was a minor, she was ineligible to convey US citizenship.[2] Under the British Nationality Act of 1948, he was born a British Citizen.[3] His paternal grandmother claims to have attended his birth in Kenya.[4] Kenya memorializes his place of birth.[5]

    At age 3, his mother and father divorced. His mother remarried and his step-father enrolled him in school in Indonesia as “Barry Soetoro.”[6]

    At age 10, after his mother’s second divorce,[7]he reentered the US by casually and illegally assuming his birth name. Later still, he ran for and won elected office under his birth name without disclosing his legal name or his prior use of alternative names.[8]

    No record of any legal name change from Barry Soetoro’ to Barack Obama’ has ever been found.

    4. He probably lost his citizenship.
    An Indonesian citizen at age 6[9], having been adopted by a national, he may be in the US illegally.[10] USC §1481(a)(2) provides loss of nationality by natural born citizens upon “taking an oath or making an affirmation or other formal declaration of allegiance to a foreign state … after having attained the age of eighteen years,” in violation of 8 U.S.C. §1401(a)(1). Indonesia did not allow for dual citizenship. If Obama got an Indonesian passport in 1981, when he was 20 years old, he effectively renounced any U.S. citizenship he may have had.

    5. He is suspected of secretly holding a foreign passport.
    When he traveled to Pakistan in college’,[11] Americans were not allowed into that country.[12] If he traveled on an Indonesian passport in 1981 at age 20, he was and remains an Indonesian citizen.

    6. He posted an illegitimate birth record to deflect questions and allegations.

    7. The Certification of Live Birth is a suspected forgery.
    The “Certification of Live Birth” shown on FightTheSmears.com is not a birth certificate, but an image of an abstract that was invalidated by alteration. As indicated on that same image, the blacked out certification number invalidates the document. Document analysis shows it to be a suspected forgery.

    The border is one that is used in 2007 COLBs. As a security measure, Hawaii changes their borders every year. This is when the Obama campaign claims the certificate was obtained. However, the seal and signature stamp are from a 2008 COLB. As revealed by a process called edging, the Hawaiian seal and signature stamp on the back of the document are revealed to be from the wrong year. Document experts have analyzed other aspects and find forgery.

    8. He refuses to release relevant records.
    Since matters available in the public domain raise these issues, the burden rests on Obama/Soetoro to explain. He declines to release college applications, transcripts, his birth record, or addresses of where he has lived.

    9. His selective service registration may be falsified.
    A FOIA document shows a 2008 sequence number for a supposed 1980 registration, an incorrect date of signature, an obsolete postal stamp and other discrepancies. Did he register at age 18 like everyone else?[13]

    10. Not a single cause of action has been won by Obama on the merits.
    All pending suits attempting to get Obama/Soetoro to produce simple documents have been dismissed on technical grounds such as the standing of the plaintiff. Therefore, the courts, including the Supreme Court of the United States have never ruled on the merits of his citizenship.

    [3] FightTheSmears.com admits: “When Barack Obama Jr. was born on Aug. 4,1961, in Honolulu, Kenya was a British colony, still part of the United Kingdom’s dwindling empire. As a Kenyan native, Barack Obama Sr. was a British subject whose citizenship status was governed by The British Nationality Act of 1948. That same act governed the status of Obama Sr.s children. Since Sen. Obama has neither renounced his U.S. citizenship nor sworn an oath of allegiance to Kenya, his Kenyan citizenship automatically expired on Aug. 4,1982.” However, Obama should have reaffirmed allegiance under 8 USC 1401 et seq. upon turning 18. He did not.

    It’s been over a decade since Barack Obama wrote Dreams from My Father, which declared for the whole country who his parents were. That’s what I call telling the truth big time.

    If he were “clearly” ineligible they he clearly wouldn’t been elected, and the state secretaries of state (or at least some of them) clearly wouldn’t have allowed him on the ballot, and the Congress clearly wouldn’t have declared him eligible by certifying the election with objection.

    So to use the word “clealy” alongside your crank eligibility theories is what I think one can objectively call a BIG TIME lie.

    Black is just one of the many diversities found on the island. Children being born to mixed race couples was nothing new in Honolulu.

    But even if you were correct, the absence of anyone remembering should not be confused with evidence that Obama was not born in Honolulu. For that we have his COLB and the birth announcements.

    If memory serves me right (and census data IS available to double check) there were a couple thousand black residents in Hawaii in 1960.

    But black people have babies, and this is not unusual, and I do not see how such an event would be seared in the brain of someone who may have delivered a thousand other babies, so that they would remember it after 48 years.

    And it may well be that someone who might have remembered it is dead (e.g. Dr. Rodney West) and someone else might not want to be involved with the nutcase who run around in Klan robes or pretend to be their own private army/judge/jury/executioner.

    Of course, as people have explained, mixed births were hardly that rare in Hawaii. To argue that somehow the birth of Barack should be remembered is just plain silly. You seem to be ‘arguing’ that the lack of evidence should be seen as evidence.

    That’s what happens when the facts do not support your position. And we know that the facts show Obama born on US soil.

    The Fifth Amendment provides that “no person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a grand jury. . . .” U.S. CONST. amend. V. And although presentments are constitutionally permitted, there is no authority under the Rules of Criminal Procedures or in the statutes of the United States for this Court to accept one. United States v. Briggs, 514 F.2d 794, 803 n.14 (5th Cir. 1975); Gaither v. United States, 413 F.2d 1061, 1065 n.1 (D.C. Cir. 1969); see also United States v. Cox, 342 F.2d. 167, 184 (5th Cir. 1965) (Brown, J., concurring).
    Furthermore, grand juries are convened by the court for the district in which they sit. See FED. R. CRIM. P. 6(a)(1). Grand jurors are also to be selected at random from a fair cross section of the district in which they are convened. 18 U.S.C. § 1861. The individuals who have made this presentment were not convened by this Court to sit as a grand jury nor have they been selected at random from a fair cross section of this district. Any self-styled indictment or presentment issued by such a group has no force under the Constitution or laws of the United States.
    As such, leave to file this presentment is hereby DENIED. Further, though the papers presented to the Clerk of Court shall not be filed, they shall be assigned a miscellaneous number along with this order for the Court’s record.

    But I’m still not sure its an appealable order. Can you cite to authority? (I can see it is a final order… its just that there isn’t really a “case”, so I don’t know whether the appropriate procedure would be a direct appeal or a writ procedure)

I’m speculating that this presentment was novel in the district, so the judge wanted to set a precedent on how to handle it. The other virtue of the order is that it provides a mini civics lesson to the public.

    Off the top of my head, no authority, other than it is final order that disposes of the matter. (The order itself seemed to construe the filings as a motion for leave to file.)

    Because there is an order, I think the rememdy is to appeal. (If there was no order, then the Super American Grand Jurors could have filed a writ petition.)

    For those unfamiliar with Hawaii, Queen Kapiolani founded 2 Hospitals, Queen Kapiolini Hospital was a major Maternity Hospital, it was started as the Kapiolani Materity Home, Queen Kapiolani’s other Hospital , Queens Medical center, was not primarily a Maternity hospital, it currently does have a small Maternity ward, though not as large as Queeen Kapiloni. As both were founded by Queen Kapiolani , people often confused the two. When you mentioned the Queens Hospital, which one are you referring to as both are often called the Queens Hospital. If it’s Materity, it’s probably Queen Kapiolani Maternity Home, the name it went by in the 60’s.(now Queen Kapiolant Medical Center). It’s where my daughter was born. The issue of which hospital he was born in is mute (a non issue), especially to those from Hawaii (like me)

    Actually though both hospitals are often called “Queen’s Hospital”
    1. Maternity Hospital started by Queen Kapiolani
    2. Medical Center started by Queen Emma.

    As a side note, Queen Emma hated Queen Kapiolani, I said both Hospitals were started by Queen Kapiolanai to see if our birther friends would catch that, to see if they were capable of research, to see if they would dispute me, guess not!. In any event, these two Hospitals are often confused. If looking for Queens Hospital either may come up, so some made a mistake. However Obama and his family never varied in stating where he was born, Queen Kapiolani. Birthers trying to use a simple mistake to bolster their ignorant story, that’s normal for idiots grasping at straws. Yes, the birth certificate issue is over.

    I’d also point out that it is a red herring argument: it is irrelevant which of 2 Hawaii hospitals Obama was born in.

    Birthers use this argument as some sort of rationale for needing to see the underlying “long form” birth certificate — but if it were demonstrated that Obama was born in Queens rather than Kapiolani, it wouldn’t have any impact on his citizenship.

    Absolutely right.

    Anatomy of a false rumor.

    Funny thing. Dr. Jerome Corsi wrote: “In a November 2004 interview with the Rainbow Newsletter, Maya told reporters her half-brother Sen. Barack Obama was born on Aug. 4, 1961, at Queens Medical Center in Honolulu; then in February 2008, Maya told reporters for the Honolulu Star-Bulletin that Obama was at the Kapiolani Medical Center for Women and Children.”

    Well, the newsletter is not the Rainbow. It is “The Rainbow Edition,” published by he students at Education Laboratory School in Hawaii. Attorney Phil Berg posted it online as part of his frivolous lawsuit. Please read pages 2 and 15: http://www.radiodujour.com/people/berg_philip/pdf/057_2%20Exhibit%20Charter%20Schools%20Rainbow%20Edition%20Newsletter.pdf

    The article did not say that Maya Soetoro said that Obama was born at Queens. It is the writer of the article who began by saying that Obama was born at Queens Medical Center. The quotations by Maya Soetoro say nothing of the sort in the article. So there is no first hand evidence of the persistent internet rumor.

    The hospital of birth issue is not heating up. It is getting colder by the minute.

    July 9, 2009 at 12:47 am
    Mr. Irish,

    In Minor Vs. Happert, the Supreme Court answers: a NBC is one born on US soil to 2 US citizen parents. In the Elg case it reaffirms this. In the Wong vs. Ark case it uses a new definition of “native born citizen” which is to be a class which encompasses more than just NBCs. In the Schieder case in 1964 it uses NBC as a subset of “native” following the precedent of the Wong case. It also says in the 1964 case that Congress has no authority to expand or restrict the rights of any class of citizen, but that is what they did on Jan 8, 2009, when then accorded the rights of a NBC to a native citizen (assuming O was born in Hawaii). Therefore that act is unconstitutional and he is ineligible. That this conclusion is SCOTUS supported. Whereas the contrary thesis, has no SCOTUS support.

    Civis naturaliter natus reads a lot of cases, and is (like Donofrio) very good at cherry picking them. Like most birfers, this poster tends to downplay the significance of Wong Ark Kim.

    Dr. C. has written about Minor. Elg does not “reaffirm” that two citizens parents are required (an argument Apuzzo used to make). And Schneider is discussing naturalized citizens, and selectively reading dicta.

    My personal favorite is when this poster cites the concurring opinion of The Venus to divine Chief Justice Marshall’s thoughts on de Vattel. (And Marshall, while one of the most important jurists to serve, did not help write the U.S. Constitution; he helped in securing its ratification.)

    In 1961, even though America was on the track to damnation, having elected a filthy Papist as President, the mere thought of a white woman debasing herself by fornicating with an accursed son of Ham was so obscene, so revolting that anyone who was confronting with the revolting evidence of such a crime against nature would have been so horrified and traumatised that they would have needed years of psychiatric counselling.

    Even in the mongrelised, ethnically impure city of Honolulu there woudld have been thousands of orginary decent americans willing ot take to the streeets to demand trhe death of the race traitor and her filthy demon-spawn.

Totally beside the point: No court (or othe government agency) will accept his opinion until Polarik proves he’s an expert.

    You want proof that Polarik doesn’t have a PhD? The argument goes like this:

    In order to get a PhD, one must be able to read and write.
    Polarik can only sign his name with a mark, proving he cannot write.
    Therefore, Polarik doesn’t have a PhD.

    Polarik's mark

    That’s Polarik’s affidavit from Keyes v Lingle.

Either way it does not change the fact that the diversity of the city of Honolulu would not make an interracial birth that uncommon. Especially since Honolulu was also a very tolerant city. So nothing would have been strange about his birth.

    “Wow…That was an interesting screed…What do you really think? Ian is one of those computer warriors, says a lot behind the anonimity of a keyboard.”

    No, I think Ian put it very well what Heavy et al would like to say, but couches it softly.

    Heavy: “But a black baby born to a white woman in 1961 was a RARE event no matter where it occurred, especially in such a small community. We are not talking about NYC.”

    Yeah, I’m from NY. So anyone outside of the city would be shocked into remembering it almost 50 years later. As richCares said, inter-marriage in Hawaii was common before it was common in NY. Heavy et all are operating on the principal of ‘oh, I remember her – she had a black husband or boyfriend.’ And that this is not happening, Heavy et al are claiming he wasn’t born there, it was SO unusual.

    As I said, j’accuse.

  334. avatar
    Expelliarmus July 9, 2009 at 10:19 pm #

    Heavy is also making the mistake of assuming that just because the press has not reported on any public statements or interviews, that no one “remembers”. If the youngest person on the hospital staff in 1961 was age 25, that person would now be 73 years old. Barack Obama did not come to national prominence until 2004 –when a youngish nurse or other hospital staffer would be in their mid-60s. Even if one of those staffers had a specific recollection of attending at the birth of a particular black infant to a white mother, it is unlikely that so many years down the line they be able to pinpoint the exact month or year- so it is unlikely that they could be sure that it was baby Obama. So what would the point be of making a public statement?

    FFLEO asked BVM: “Since credentials matter, can you confirm that Mr. Polarik is a Ph.D. and in what academic specialty? You tout the “doctors and lawyers” who support you points, but their curricula vitae are somewhat difficult to confirm.”

    BVM did not dignify the question with a reply.

    Here is the answer: Polarik is not at Ph.D, not a Doctor, and not even a real person. He is a pseudonym, an alias, a fictional character. He signed a court affidavit with twelve X’s. Twelve! XXXXXXXXXXXX. So help me! You can’t make this stuff up (YCMTSU):

    Not to argue with you, but I think Obama is actually from Mars, not Krypton. You should check your facts before making such an accusation. And I think the dinner was in honor of Vonnegut, because some people have placed Obama from Tralfamadore.

If you tell them that Obama never said “Queens Medical Center (the wrong hospital) and Maya didn’t state where he was born, they come back with links to news stories saying Queen’s medical Center.

    in the case of Polarik defends him by asking us to prove that he is not an expert.

    Phil is so deep in the echo chamber that if you state the obvious (i.e., there’s no independent evidence that “Dr.” “Polarik” has any kind of degree), he dodges with something like “well, there’s no evidence indicating when Obama requested the COLB from Hawaii either.” Which is totally irrelevant and redundant: The COLB’s seal and signature are self-authenticating, and answer that question (i.e., around June 6, 2007).

    Phil’s latest obsession is there’s no proof that Obama sent a letter to Kapi’olani Medical Center. (There’s just footage of Hawaii’s U.S. Representative reading something which read just like a letter.)

  355. avatar
    Bob July 10, 2009 at 2:15 pm #

    Phil is seriously high:

    Frankly, I see the smear tactics being used against Dr. Polarik as attempting to create a scenario whereby people inherently distrust him, despite the fact that he has produced material that can be independently verified and has actually gone on record via affidavit in at least one eligibility lawsuit where he would have been subject to cross-examination.

    Pointing out that there’s no independent verfication of his self-claim expertise is not a smear tactic. Pointing out that “Polarik” has made some rather out-there claims is also not a smear, but further demonstrates how incredible he is.

    Also, “Pokarik” has not “gone on the record.” In a suit that was dismissed on procedural grounds, his “anonymous” declaration was included. The court in no way relied upon it (as it was a procedural dismissal), and if had gotten to the stage where would have been used, it would have drawn an obvious objection, as you can’t file anonymous declarations.

    As we learned from Taitz and these “grand juries,” there’s a world a difference between just throwing paper at a court, and properly filing it and having used to further your position.

    And, as noted by the doctor, “Polarik”‘s “work” has been debunked; no one has “verified” it all.

    What is so funny is that “Polarik”‘s declaration (using his real name) could have been filed under seal (assuming the court bought the claim that his life was in danger if he identity was revealed).

    Of course, if that did happen, the then Phil couldn’t make any claims about the declaration being used in a lawsuit, as it would be under seal and thus not verifiable to the public. (Or, more likely, the judge would not have allowed the declaration to be filed under seal.)

    Actually the entire Red Room article is Total BS.

It is usually effective among wing nuts as they never check sources, You see this technique in constant use among wing nut bloggers and Birthers, as well as just made up stuff.

    heavy queries “Liar? Idiot? Really? What is your proof?”
    heavy has made similar queries in the past, when corrected (debunked) he does 1 of 2 things
    1. hurls insults then slithers back into the woodwork only to return on another thread with another phony link.
    2. slithers back into the woodwork only to return on another thread with another phony link.

    in either case he has earned the name “cockroach”, want to see the cockroach slither back into the woodwork, shine a light on it, there goes heavy. I doubt he will return to answer this issue, he’s in the woodwork.

    Doc to heavy “The question is whether you will learn from yours.” The answer is no!

    heavy says “NOTHING was “Shown” except a bunch of moaning…”

    Why don’t they just make an exception for the POTUS and supply the long form? They should have a copy of the original certificate that got written up the day he was born.

    The following is loosely informed speculation:

    If push comes to shove, they might well cough up a photocopy of the long form, certainly if they got a valid subpoena (and still had the form). I’m thinking that the paper form is probably long gone, but it might still exist as an image, either on microfilm/fiche or in digital form. I’ve been in some state vaults and they are huge affairs, fancy access controls and fire suppression systems. I can only imagine that they are very expensive to maintain, and expensive to use (compared to an optical or computer system). Granted, Hawaii is not the most populous state in the union, but keeping the paper must still cost them a lot. Also it’s a lot harder to implement access controls with a paper system.

    Why should they, joe?

    The COLB meets every requirement for the Federal Government to prove your place of birth. That’s the thing you don’t seem to understand.

    The State of Hawaii have already said that it’s “a valid Hawaii State Birth Certificate”.

    They’ve already said that the Birth Certificate wouldn’t say “Honolulu” under the place of birth if he was actually born in Kenya.

    They’ve said that the birth certificate is enough to prove your citizenship to any federal agency.

    So, my question to you is why are you stating that proving your place of birth to the Federal Government fundamentally different than proving your place of birth to the Federal Government?

    Who is “they”? Under what authority would “they” do so?

    I presume that “they” is the Hawaii Department of Health. I believe that they have the authority to set the regulations as to what kinds of forms they issue. If, for example, Barack Obama asked for a long form or if a lawful subpoena were issued, then it’s maybe possible the state might provide a copy of it. My personal reading of the Hawaiian law says that if the long form exists, then Barack Obama is entitled to a copy. But it may well not exist.
