Kenyan Official confirms: it’s all “baseless claims”

In a report on August 3, 2009, The Washington Independent quoted a Kenyan Embassy official:

Jon Chessoni, a first secretary at the Kenyan Embassy in Washington, can’t understand why his office gets so many baseless questions about whether Barack Obama was born in Kenya.

“It’s madness,” said Chessoni on Monday. “His father, in 1961, would not even have been in Kenya. When this matter first came up, the Kenyan government did its research and confirmed that these are all baseless claims.”…

Chessoni didn’t understand what Taitz was talking about or what her discovery (the gift of an “anonymous source” who’s “afraid for his life”) was supposed to prove. He showed the image [fake Kenyan birth certificate] to other embassy employees, who rolled their eyes….

    I am dubious to believe anyone from Kenya especially one who recides in Washington DC. Recall, that Hillary Clinton was just in Kenya. Is it a coincidence or was Hillary going there to destroy documents and shut people up. WND has investigators in Kenya snooping around. I would not rule out the possibly that Hillary was in Kenya to intercept high rank officals in attempt to keep this issue sealed up.

    The only real way to end this issue, is for Obama to release his long form Birth Certificate that lists the hospital and doctor’s name. Obama absolutely refuses to do this. I will bet my marbles there is a very good reason.

    WND investigators need to continue snooping around. If Obama was born in Kenya, we will eventually find it.

    Recently, Globe Magazine revealed that Obama could have also been born in Canada. This is possible as well since Dunham recided in Seattle, Washingtion which was very close to the Canadian border. Investigators need to snoop around in Canada as well.

    Oh for the love of all that is good and holy. She was in Africa on a diplomatic tour of the continent. So she went to Kenya. So the f**k what. It is simply a coincidence. And if Barack Obama really had been born in Kenya (which he wasn’t), and there were documents in Kenya stating as much (which there aren’t, because he wasn’t), don’t you think that the Obama admin would have had them destroyed a long time ago. Would somebody who was trying to do as you people claim really leave documents that contradict his version of his life story. You people can’t seem to figure out how good or thorough of a conspiracy this is.

    So, here is a thought. Why don’t you all get together and come up with one, single, cohesive theory. And if you are proven wrong, which you are anyway, then you can all GO AWAY!

    And WND investigators is an oxymoron. If those people are “investigators” or “journalists,” then journalism has truly reached a new low.

    And Globe Magazine is a tabloid. A SUPERMARKET TABLOID. They make their money writing stories that they know are false simply to make money.

    Even if Obama was truly born in Hawaii, he still is not off the hook (Putting the “Natural Born” citizenship argument aside for the moment). Obama still has not released his long-form Birth Certificate. I suspect this for 2 reasons:
    1. The Long Form Birth Certificate will show Obama wasn’t born at Kapoloni Medical Center. This will catch Obama in a major lie and subject Kapoloni and Obama to potential fraud charges.
    2. The Long Form BC will show that there is no coorobating evidence he was born in Hawaii.

    So, what your saying is, even if President Obama was born in Hawaii, the Long Form might not show “corroborating evidence” that he was. That makes no sense whatsoever. If he was born in Hawaii, then the Long Form says so.

    And why this fixation with the hospital. As long as he was born in Hawaii, he is eligible. End of story.

    Three other reasons:

    1) He can’t release it. The State of Hawaii changed its policies in 2001 so that the short form was the only form of birth certificate that the public can request. Someone born in Hawaii can’t even authorize the form to be released to _himself_ no less authorize it to be released to someone else.
    2) Releasing it wouldn’t stop the questions because he tried answering critics before and the goalposts were then moved. He’s already released a document that the State of Hawaii has validated as genuine and is in itself “serves as prima facie evidence of the fact of birth in any court proceedings.” If that’s not acceptable, then what is?
    3) Releasing it wouldn’t stop the questions because people will just make up other reasons to doubt him: http://barackryphal.blogspot.com/2009/01/for-inauguration-day-birther-platonic.html

    It is important the Obama Long Form BC be released. The State of Hawaii or Obama has yet to explain why his Certificate Number is higher than the 2 twins even though he was born before them. This is a big red flag.

    Nonsense, they are extremely close together that a claim of big red flag shows your desperate attempts to ignore that Hawaii has certified Obama as born in Hawaii.
    Nothing on a long form is going to change that.

    And of course Obama still has his passport problem and Indonesia citizenship and name change problem to deal with. It appears that the Obama Admin may be involved in murder coverup regarding the passport breach of Obama. Recall, that one of the lead investigators of the passport breach was cooporating with authorities. Shortly after, he ended up with a bullet in his head. Then Obama still has resolve how he legally changed his name back to Barack Obama from Barry Soetoro. Remember, when Obama adopted by Lolo (The divorce records seem to suggest an adoption as Obama was declared a child of Lolo and Stanley and not referred to a child from a previous marriage) his name was legally changed from Barack Obama to Barry Soetoro. Obama’s school record reveals this.

    John,

    Your rantings basically prove that it does not matter what documents are released – none of them will be good enough for you. Everything you point out is nothing more than the same old talking points from Orly’s web site. Everything that has already been completely debunked, yet still not good enough for you.

    You have shown that even if the hand of God came from the heavens and scrawled ‘OBAMA IS A NBC AND IS FULLY ELIGIBLE TO BE PRESIDENT’ across your forehead, you still would not believe it.

    Basically, you are just a carbon-copy whiner of the same old BS we have heard before. Tantrums may have worked with your mother, but in the face of the law and common sense, they do not.

    If you are gonna simply whine and moan over meaningless issues, please – at least do it in a manner that is more humorous for our amusement, since that is the only value it serves. Thank you.

    i just want the jerk to present his birth certificate just like the rest of us chumps have to when the law calls for it as proof of status for employment. the fact he won’t show it is enough grounds for him to be cleared out – even if, afterwards, he’s show to be a full-fledged NBC.

    And BC(s) are only bits of fact that will be formally presented at the court action along with other facts. From there, the legal determinations will be the key findings.

    Obama has already told everyone that he was, at birth, a Brit. Unfortunately, many of you are incapable of reading apparently.

    He also stated that he was a natural born US citizen at birth. The two positions are hardly irreconcilable as legal precedent has shown.

    Once the President was sworn in after he was found qualified by Congress, there is no court who can do anything about it.

As far as showing a birth certificate when you are employed: perhaps that might be required to show your status these days, but you show it to the HR guy.

    “Both of you miss the real point which is that the man has never yet proven his eligibility under our laws to hold the office he now occupies.”

    He has for the people that matter, namely Congress and the Secretaries of State of each state. Every legal challenge so far has been thrown out of court.

    In most states ultimate responsibility for the conduct of elections, including the enforcement of qualifying rules falls on the secretary of state. The SoS for every state and DC found Obama eligible to be placed on the ballot for both primary and general elections.

    But I want to focus on one particular state.
    We know the government of Hawaii holds Obama’s BC and state officials have access to it.

    In Hawaii, the Lieutenant Governor serves as SoS AND his office is also the primary repository of official records including birth certificates.

    http://hawaii.gov/ltgov/office/apostilles

    The Lt Governor of Hawaii is Duke Aiona (R)

    Duke led the Hawaii delegation to the Republican convention where he is quoted as saying during the roll call:
    “Hawaii …proudly casts its 20 votes for the next president of the United States, Senator John McCain, and the next vice president of the United States, Gov. Sarah Palin.”[wild applause – Honolulu Advertiser]

    So the person responsible for determining whether Obama was eligible to appear on the presidential ballot in Hawaii
    · Is also in charge of his birth records.
    · A Republican convention delegate

    I don’t know if this has been mentioned before on this site.
    If there was anything in that vault BC that would have made Obama ineligible, Aiona could have disqualified him. Indeed, it would have been his constitutional duty to do so. But he didn’t. He put him on the ballot.

    On Nov 24th, Gov Linda Lingle (R), signed the Certificate of Ascertainment for the National Archives awarding Hawaii’s four electoral votes to Barack Obama “in conformity with the Constitution and Laws of the United States”. You can see it here:

    http://www.archives.gov/federal-register/electoral-college/2008-certificates/ascertainment-hawaii-01.html

    Lingle campaigned for McCain and was on the Republican slate of electors as the document shows.

    The Republican Chief Executive of Hawaii and her deputy are therefore on record regarding Obama’s eligibility. There’s no smoking gun in that archived BC.

    Because certificate numbers aren’t issued in the order of birth.

    They are issued in the order that paperwork is completed AFTER birth.

    The mother has to complete a worksheet, and the hospital staff has to complete a separate worksheet.

    Then someone else takes the worksheets and issues the certificate and the numbers.

    Obama’s certificate number could be higher because the twin’s mom filled out her form first — sometimes new mom’s ask for extra time because they aren’t sure what they want to name the baby — and sometimes they just happen to be asleep when the nurse comes by with the form so it gets done later.

    OR, Obama’s mom could have filled out her form first, but the papers were then stacked in an in-box or put in an envelope with the newest forms on top, oldest ones on the bottom – so the clerical person who issued the certificates might have started at the top of the stack, working her way from newest to oldest. Obama was born on a Friday night, the twins on Saturday — it is likely that all the paperwork was dealt with together on Monday morning.

    The fact that the certificate numbers are so close is evidence that Obama was indeed born at the same hospital. If his paperwork had been completed at a different hospital or had been brought into the health department separately, it would be unlikely to have had such a close number in the series.

    I really can’t believe that anyone is stupid enough to think that birth certificates are issued in the delivery room or that their number in any way corresponds to time of birth. It is perfectly legal in many states for for certificates to be filed weeks or even months after the birth, so there is no way in the world that the numbers match birth order.

    And Obama knew the difference as will come out in court. Also, Congress NEVER “found him to be qualified”. All they did was accept the results of the EC – in effect saying “yes, those are the EC results” … and they didn’t even do THAT correctly as they were required to do.

    In order for a case to be “thrown out” at this early stage, the judge has to assume that ALL FACTS are completely and totally exactly the way the plaintiff says. So, even assuming EVERYTHING the plaintiffs have said is true, none of these cases was able to make out a claim against Obama.

    You’re right that he’s never proven his eligibility in court; he’s never had to. However, that’s an irrelevant standard since he has already produced the necessary documentation that any court would be required to accept.

    If you think he’s not eligible because he’s never had to prove his eligibility in court, then by that standard you think that every single President we’ve ever had is ineligible. All the others equally never proved their eligibility, but the others equally could have, if needed.
