Harvard Law School reports finding Obama birth certificate

In a nice April Fool article, the Harvard Law Record reports that a copy of Obama’s original birth certificate was found at Harvard. Since Obama attended Harvard Law School, the story is not all that implausible on face of it.

These so-called “birthers” were stunned but unfazed when the Harvard Law School copy of the birth certificate pointed them not to Kenya, Indonesia, or some other site of speculation, but the Pacific Ocean island chain of Hawaii. “I knew it,” wrote blogger ObamaIzaF8ke2273. “Obama was born outside the United States. We just didn’t know exactly where. Until now.”

    In other news, an aslyee is now eligible for an unrestricted SSN card.

    All refugees have employment authorization based on their status as refugees.

    All individuals granted asylum are authorized to work based on that status. An asylee does not need to show an employment authorization document as proof of employment authorization when applying for a Social Security number and card. However, some asylees may have those documents and provide them as evidence supporting their application.

    The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) now considers aliens granted asylum to have permanent employment authorization and requests that we treat them as permanent resident aliens. This means that when an individual granted asylum submits appropriate documentation with an SS-5, we will issue an unrestricted Social Security card.

    The Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR), a separate office from DHS, also processes requests for asylum and may grant asylum.

    When an asylee applies for an original or replacement Social Security card, Social Security will accept as proof of alien status any of the following:

    *
    An I-94 with a stamp showing the individual is granted asylum under section 208 of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA). NOTE: Some I-94s issued to asylees are stamped or annotated “EMPLOYMENT AUTHORIZED,” and some are not. An individual who has been granted asylum does not need an annotation on the I-94 or an employment authorization document to be issued an Social Security number and card for work purposes.

    *
    An employment authorization document (either Form I-688B showing “274A.12(a)(5)” on the face of the card under Provision of Law or Form I-766 showing “A5” on the face of the card under Category); or

    *
    An order of an Immigration Judge granting asylum under the INA. The document must be the original decision (not a copy) printed on paper stock bearing the letterhead “United States Department of Justice, Executive Office for Immigration Review, Immigration Court” and show the city where the immigration court is located.

    NOTE: If you’re a noncitizen, we must verify your documents with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) before we issue a Social Security number or replacement card. Most of the time, we can quickly verify your documents online with DHS. If DHS can’t verify your documents online, it may take several weeks or months to respond to Social Security’s request

    Greg, we were ignoring Sven until he actually provides the group with actually supporting documentation or evidence to support his wild fantasies and ridiculous speculation. He knows that there is no evidence that the President was any kind of a asylee. It is no different than Sven never showing us any minor that renouncing his citizenship or any so called corporation that provided social security numbers for refugees in the 1970’s…

    If you bothered to read the post, then you’d know some asylees I-94’s are stamped with “Employment Authorized.”

    I don’t know if BO’s I-94 has this notation because he won’t make it publicly available. Why is that? What is he afraid of?

    Is his ARO in Connecticut threatening to expose him? What are they getting to keep quiet about the whole sordid affair?

    Did he start receiving Social Security benefits in 1976? As an orphaned asylee living with his nearest living relatives in the U.S., he would have been entitled to SS benefits. Wouldn’t it be an interesting story if BO was on SSI during his teens and rose to be POTUS?

    Jeff, you are right. Actually we are still waiting on real evidence. Like can Sven name an actual ARO that was based in CT that dealt with refugees in the 1970’s? He can’t. He has been pushing this ridiculous fictionalized possibility for months now and ignored requests for evidence. So we just nod and smile as he continues to write his book. It will probably be more entertaining that Jerome Corsi’s, but no more factual. I think Sven is going for the NY Times best selling fiction book. I look forward to Sven’s postings for my daily chuckle…

    Dick: do you think Bush and Cheney or Hillary, a lawyer, didn’t investigate Obama during the campaign?

    There is overwhelming evidence Obama was born in Hawaii. Do you still think that the “Republican” governor of Hawaii, Lingle covered for him?! Even the school papers that have been on illuminati videos for quite sometime (Youtube) showing “Indonesian citizen” are also showing his DOB and place of birth “Honolulu,4.8.61”, exactly as stated on his COLB.
    Obama was a child when his mom and stepdad took him to Indonesia, unless you think his mom knew he was going to be president( a psychic) someday and the cover up started when he was a child right?

    BTW your first name is describes you perfectly!

    Question: Regarding DickWhitman, why is he referred to by some posters as “Sven”? Earlier in his on-line life, was DickWhitman posting as Sven?

    Wait a minute . . . could DickWhitman be an illegal Scandinavian immigrant trying to pass himself as a natural born citizen?! I think there is evidence to support my hypothesis. Consider this: what English-speaking NBC, who revered the COITUS, fulminated against the SCROTUS, and vilified the PUSA, would choose a handle as open to parody and insult as “DickWhitman”? Commonsense tells us that only an illegal with a poor understanding of colloquial English would choose a nickname that incorporates a slang term for male genitalia.

    Dick Whitman is just one of the many sock-puppets used by our regular delusional troll here, who commonly posts under the name of Sven.

    He’ll often come back under another name to fluff himself by fake-congratulating the “brilliance” of his last post.

    As his stuff is lame and such boldfaced fantasy lies, the only way he can get any affirmation is by giving it to himself.

    Sad and pathetic really.

    He did not “emigrate” but moved there for a time with his mother. A young child always goes with his mother. Since President Obama was then too young to surrender his citizenship, (hint: minors cannot give legal consent or sign contracts) his citizenship was completely unaffected.
    When he was 10, he simply moved back to Hawaii, citizenship intact.

    Gee, Dick, and just why do you find it so interesting? Are you a foreign refugee in need of a Reentry permit? Are you revealing something about yourself here?

    Or maybe Sven is watching that new FOX show Fringe. They have discovered an alternate universe there, one where the World Trade Center is still standing. So I think that Sven is speculating that in that alternate universe, like the great Star Trek episode that Lupin references, is where Sven’s fictional musings may be possible. However here in the real world, Sven is just making stuff up as he goes along.

    I will admit he does give me a daily laugh. Especially when he attempts to make rational people believe that somehow a 6-10 year old renounced their US citizenship. Even though he provides no evidence or gives one example of that ever happening, Sven somehow believes that a rational person would think that is possible is borderline delusional.

    Anyone, even a minor, can renounce their U.S. citizenship. The renunciation of a minor’s citizenship becomes final 6 month’s after the child’s 18th birthday unless the child affirmatively takes action to rescind their renunciation and state an oath of allegiance.

    Umm? Another interesting article. I did click the Geller link within the article and there is a photo there that is barry soetero in the middle of the pic. As anyone done any forensic research on this photo? By an observational glance it sure seems that barry is dis-proportioned in size compared to the subjects around him. Probably another photoshop job. I am only guessing without the tools presently to assess the what the naked eye seems to indicate. Worth checking out since we have caught several modified photos of his supposed past.

    I really love the mental image I have of 6 year old Barrack standing in front of a consular employee in Indonesia and explaining to him how he wished to renounce his U.S. citizenship and also was hoping that Santa Claus would bring him a toy car for Christmas.

    In Sven’s imaginary world, a 6 year old is savy enough to chose to renounce his citizenship but somehow the 18 year old is too dumb to un-renounce his renouncement.

    to Dick Whitman:

    For a natural-born citizen, losing your citizenship is actually quite difficult. The law prohibits the taking of your citizenship against your will.

    Moving to another country for an extended period of time does not constitute an act that presumes renunciation. Neither does taking a routine-level job with a foreign government. The sections of the law that pertained to losing ones nationality for many of these cases was found at 8 USC 1482 and related sections.

    The U.S. Code does, however, see some acts as creating the possibility of a loss of nationality. When you lose your U.S. nationality, you are no longer under the protection or jurisdiction of the United States. When the United States considers you to no longer be of U.S. nationality, it in effect considers you to no longer be a citizen.. The ways to lose citizenship are detailed in 8 USC 1481:

    Becoming naturalized in another country
    Swearing an oath of allegiance to another country
    Serving in the armed forces of a nation at war with the U.S., or if you are an officer in that force
    Working for the government of another nation if doing so requires that you become naturalized or that you swear an oath of allegiance
    Formally renouncing citizenship at a U.S. consular office
    Formally renouncing citizenship to the U.S. Attorney General
    By being convicted of committing treason

    A child cannot renounce his citizenship, a parent cannot renounce his child citizenship either.

    Since you are probably too lazy, I’ll quote a key synopsis from the link:

    Just under the wire. If Barry had returned to the U.S. in 1972, instead of 1971, then he would have been required to obtain a SSN as a legally admitted alien.

    Later, in 1975, BHO II had to get his SSN to continue receiving AFDC.

    1972 Social Security Amendments of 1972 (P.L. 92-603):

    * Required SSA to issue SSNs to all legally admitted aliens at entry and to anyone receiving or applying for any benefit paid for by Federal funds;
    * Required SSA to obtain evidence to establish age, citizenship, or alien status and identity.
    * Authorized SSA to enumerate children below school age at the request of parents and at the time they first entered school.

    1975 Social Services Amendments of 1974 (P.L. 93-647) provided that:

    * Disclosure of an individual’s SSN as a condition of eligibility for Aid to Families With Dependent Children (AFDC, now Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF)) benefits; and
    * Office of Child Support Enforcement Parent Locator Service may require disclosure of limited information (including SSN and whereabouts) contained in SSA records.

    But he didn’t return in 1972…I believe it was 1971.s so your point is without merit. Although you did not provide any proof that the President was an alien.

    So what we have that is factual. Obama was born in HI. He lived in Indonesia from 1967-1971. He never renounced his US citizenship. He was never adopted. He was never known as “Barry Soetero” in the United States. He is eligible and is the current President of the US. And finally all of Sven’s so called theories are fiction because he can never provide any supporting evidence or documentation that shows that any of his theories involved the President.
