    Do any of the experts here know when Barack Obama got his first U.S. passport? I remember that he was removed from his mother’s passport in the 1960s but is there proof of when he first received his very own passport?
    Now that he’s a private citizen again, would his passport history be available under an FOIA request?

    No later than 2009.

    No. No third-party FOIA requests for living people are granted (unless there is a waiver).

    Proof? No, but in his book Dreams of My Father there is a passage about arriving in Honolulu from Indonesia (Spring, 1979) and custom officer asking if he was an American and the ten year old handed him his passport.

    He would have gotten his own when he was taken off his mother’s. He had to have a passport to return to Hawaii for school.

    Being President had nothing to do with FOIA rejections for his passport records. Such records are protected for ALL living persons President or not.

    Doc has more relevent experience with the issue of course.

He also is moaning that he has had three failed marriages (gee, I wonder why?). He hates immigrants so he thinks that polygamy would be a good way to get more white babies in the U.S.

    Here’s the brief article:

    “Yes, it’s true, Barack Obama, while president, bugged Donald Trump at the Trump Tower in New York. But it’s excusable.

    Obama keeps his birth certificate at his home in the top drawer of his night table. But one night, when he checked, it wasn’t there. As a result, he ordered bugs put up for two days at the Trump Tower, but Donald Trump never mentioned anything about Barack’s birth certificate, so Obama removed the bugs.

    After the bugs were gone, Trump happily told an aide, now fired, that he had burned the birth certificate. The identity of this aide is being withheld at his request.”

    Paul Irey wrote to Taitz:

    Statement just made to me from Dr. Conspiracy [ . . .]:“Even if Obama did forge his birth certificate in 2011, the statute of limitations has run out. (You did know that, right?)”

    Orly … this is not true … right?

    Taitz’s response:

    no, it did not, particularly in light of the fact that Obama committed fraud in occupying the position of the president till 2009 based on a stolen CT SSN and fabricated IDs and he is getting retirement money today, as a former president based on fabricated IDs.

    Nice try Mr. Obama. though, but no go!

    Trump earns Four Pinocchios for the Time Magazine interview

    Trump consistently astounds us with his inability to acknowledge that he repeatedly gets facts wrong and consistently misleads the American public with inaccurate, dubious claims. He earns Four Pinocchios for this interview

    Reality Check:
    The fact that Paul Irey would go to Orly Taitz for a legal opinion on anything tells you everything you need to know about Paul Irey.

    Wasn’t he going to leave he country or something?

    I wonder if Irey is the prominent Birther having an email exchange with Doc. If so, the veracity of the “tidal wave” prediction has just dropped, which is actually impressive given most Birther predicitions already trend near .05%.

    And even if the birth certificate was forged it wouldn’t be a crime because it was never used for an official purpose. That’s why Lucas Smith can’t be charged with a crime for the Kenyan birth certificate which he forged. It would have been a different matter if he had been able to sell it while passing it off as authentic.

    Orly still believes that Obama’s SSN was stolen from the non-existent Harrison Bounel.

    That may be true, but I don’t like going there, because 8 years of public discussion and analysis of the matter have shown clearly that – support from lying, grandstanding, sucker-playing Arizona political grifters aside – there simply isn’t the slightest actual credible evidence of any forgery, or Kenyan birth, or any other of the birther claims whatsoever.

    ALL available evidence is completely clear that birtherism is, and always was, a complete and total fantasy/ load of manure/ con job.

    From a factual point of view, birthers might as well have spent the last 8 years arguing that Batboy invented peanut butter.

    Politifact: Fact-checking Trump’s TIME interview on truths and falsehoods

    Here are some of Trump’s most egregious claims from the interview with TIME Washington Bureau Chief Michael Scherer on March 22. Many of the statements are things we’ve debunked again and again.

    http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/article/2017/mar/23/fact-checking-trumps-time-interview-truths-and-fal/

    Trump threatens to leave ObamaCare in place if Dyancare fails. (Quel dommage!)

    http://thehill.com/policy/healthcare/325568-trump-tells-gop-to-take-it-or-leave-it-on-obamacare-repeal

    Q-POLL: Dyancare approval just 17%. Age 50-64: 62% Disapprove / 16% Approve

    Why should men pay for maternity care if they are 60? For one, Trump is 70 with a 10-year old son.

    Why should men pay for mammograms? I know 2 men who had breast cancer.

    Why should I pay for circumcisions, viagra, penis pumps, vasectomies and prostate cancer? (Prostate cancer is the third leading cause of cancer death in American men, behind lung cancer and colorectal cancer.)

    New CBO score: The legislation would reduce the deficit by $150 billion over 10 years, down from $337 billion in the original legislation, the report said. The plan would still result in 24 million more people being uninsured in 2026

    The CBO’s message is, essentially, that if Trump simply sticks with the status quo, the wave of huge premium hikes and insurer dropouts will end.

    Your point is well taken, but I brought it up because for years I have been challenging birthers to identify the law which they believe was broken if the birth certificate could be proven to be a forgery.

    Nancy Owens, The Obama Forger March 24, 2017 at 9:06 am #

    I know. Just ignore the problem for forty years and then, boom, with a few clicks of a keyboard, stealing the Obama forger’s intel, suddenly you’re the most awesome investigator the world has ever known. ZulloMoore did that with the acid-burned fingerprints, you know.

    I was instructed by the convicted felon sheriff Sermon Dyess, Jr. to go give intel to Mike ZulloMoore. The intel I gave was that the Medellin Cartel, of which I am one, were burning off fingerprints via the same acid we used in getting rid of bodies.

    No joke. He takes this intel and submits it to a specialized police magazine and then asks me to marry him. Why? So, that he could pocket all of the money and take all of the credit.

    Wash, rinse, repeat.

    The real problem that he has is that Pablo Escobar built an embassy not more than a few miles off of his station. Not to mention, he really didn’t seem to have a clue as to what was going on in his own back yard. This is why he and others try to hard to keep their true territory such a huge secret.

    Joey: If Zullo hacked your files that makes him a successful investigator of Nancy Owens, “the Obama Forger.”
    That would be the first time that Mike Zullo did anything impressive in birtherdom.

    Root wrote the following in 2010:

    I do want however to make it clear that all of us have a right, duty and obligation to question our President, as well as all politicians on their past. The moment a politician decides to run for office they have given up a right to “seal records.” They are now a public figure, and the voting public has every right to question and investigate anything and everything that shines light on who will be representing the American people.

    Root in 2017, speaking about Democrats and Trump:

    There is not much that needs to be said.They’re unhinged, they’re off the rails, they’re mentally ill. The Democratic Party has Trump Derangement Syndrome and they are no longer an opposition party or a leading party; they’re not willing to come to the table and work, they’re not willing to vote on Supreme Court nominees, they’re just looking to block and boycott. They’re crazy and so we have just got to run the country and ignore them … I think we have got to erase Obama like he was never there.

    Cody Robert Judy update: While he waits to have his Motion for Reconsideration to be denied, he has come up with a “brilliant” idea to cut the cost of health insurance. His solution? Instead of being covered 24/7, just be covered three days a week. Or save more by being covered only during office hours. So if you have a heart attack or stroke at night, all you have to do is stay alive until morning and then rush to the hospital. Unless it happens on one of the four days of the week when you aren’t covered, in which case you have to hang on longer.

    He calls his plan “Coasting Code-Care.” I have no idea what that is supposed to mean.

    What an idiot (take your pick Judy and/or Rondeau). Judy filed a “Notice of Decision/Judgment” on his Motion for Reconsideration filed on 2/27. He thinks he can file that because the defendants filed no opposition in the 30 day period allowed by FRCP. However, his Motion for Reconsideration was already denied by Judge Webster. Judy doesn’t understand that a reply was optional. His frivolous dead case is still frivolous and still dead.

    Meanwhile Rondeau who the other day was correcting a typo that Yahoo made called Judy a “Democrat candidate”. It is “Democratic candidate” dip-wad.

    He said that no one has said Montgomery’s data base was not from the NSA. Of course except for Thomas Drake and Kirk Wiebo two NSA ex-employees who called Montgomery a fraud.

    “The sheriff’s office also initially failed to turn over a report from two former National Security Agency computer specialists, Thomas Drake and Kirk Wiebe, who the sheriff’s office asked to evaluate Montgomery’s work to see if it was credible. They concluded Montgomery’s database was fraudulent and did not contain records from the CIA as Montgomery had suggested. “We have found that he is a complete and total FRAUD,” the former NSA employees concluded.”

But he had nothing. Zullo was awful and Woodall was not impressed.

    H. Keith: By ‘nice’ I mean, of course, that it only rained 3 out of 4 days, and only in the morning with fog or low clouds the rest of the time. 1 day was sunny and 70 degrees. That was the day we decided to go up the Sears Tower to the Skydeck ‘tommorrow’.

    Yeah, that’s more like it. Never mind, the real Chicago is down on the ground anyways. And, as much as I like Obama, I never drove past his house either.

    Well, what do you know. Just saw this:

    “Just three weeks from former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s criminal contempt trial, lead defense attorney Mel McDonald has asked to withdraw from the case.”

    “In a brief Monday filing, McDonald only states that the request is made in “good cause” and that his withdrawal was “mandatory” under an ethical rule.”

    . . . .

    “McDonald’s request comes days after numerous defense motions asking the judge to delay the trial and to bar Arpaio’s old campaign statements, as well as victim testimony.”

    “Another motion states that Arpaio was “coerced” into acknowledging civil contempt in the case. According to the motion, Arpaio agreed to the admission because his attorneys led him to believe that it would prevent him from criminal charges.”

    “It is unclear whom the motion seeks to blame for this agreement. . . . ”

    I sure hope Arpaio is enjoying being a criminal defendant.

    Plaintiff H. Brooke Paige left a comment at my blog about Paige v Condos, et. al.. He is awaiting a decision on his appeal to the Vermont Supreme Court. He is optimistic due to the length of time they have taken to issue a decision since oral arguments were held on November 30, 2016. If you really this was the case that Paige filed in late 2015 against Ted Cruz, Marco, Rubio and two other candidates on the Vermont 2016 primary ballot.

    The comment was left on an article where I listed all of Mario Apuzzo’s losing eligibility cases (there are no winning cases). I added this appeal to the list.

    That is a great story by the Arizona Republic. Unfortunately, it is a touch too late: Klayman, Corsi, and Zullo’s wild claims never escaped the right-wing echo chamber, and even the birthers have already moved on.

    BREAKING NEWS:

    “Representative Devin Nunes, the embattled California Republican who is chairman of the Intelligence Committee, announced on Thursday he would step aside from leading his committee’s investigation into Russia’s efforts to disrupt last year’s presidential election.

    “His announcement was made on the same morning that the House Committee on Ethics said Mr. Nunes was under investigation because of public reports that he ‘may have made unauthorized disclosures of classified information.’”

    I don’t know if “we” have, but they were exhibits in the MCSO/Arpaio proceedings. Tes added the letters to her site in 2015.

    A scholarly article has appeared in the Wake Forest Law Review on “On the Meaning of ‘Considered as Natural Born'”.

    http://wakeforestlawreview.com/2017/04/on-the-meaning-of-considered-as-natural-born/

    There is particular attention to the Naturalization Act of 1790. I think the matter has been moved forward by this article.

    Through a chain of references from the article I arrived at the debates on the 1790 Act (which I have not yet had time to read).
