Validation of Barack Obama's Constitutional Eligibility


Validation of Barack Obama's Constitutional Eligibility

To: Secretaries of State, Attorneys General, Governors, Legislatures, Election Officials and all other controlling legal authorities of elections in the 50 states:

Whereas, by requirement of the United States Constitution, Article 2, Section 1, no one can be sworn into office as president of the United States without being a natural born citizen;

Whereas, there is sufficient controversy within the citizenry of the United States as to whether presidential election winner Barack Obama was actually born in Hawaii as he claims;

Whereas, Barack Obama has claimed to be the son of a Kenyan national and a subject of the United Kingdom at birth;

Whereas, Barack Obama was apparently adopted by an Indonesian national stepfather as a child, potentially abrogating his "natural born citizen" status;

Whereas, Barack Obama has refused repeated requests for the release of documents, such as his school records, college records, travel records, passport records, Selective Service records and health records, that might shed light on his citizenship status;

Whereas, Barack Obama has even refused repeated calls to release publicly his entire Hawaiian birth certificate, which would include the actual hospital that performed the delivery;

Whereas, lawsuits filed in several states seeking only proof of the basic minimal standard of eligibility have been rebuffed;

Whereas, this constitutional cloud over the commander-in-chief creates an exceedingly heavy burden on the nation's armed forces, some members of which, at great personal risk to themselves and their careers, are publicly calling for Barack Obama to prove his eligibility;

Whereas, Hawaii at the time of Obama's birth allowed births that took place in foreign countries to be registered in Hawaii;

Whereas, growing concerns that our governments and election officials are not taking this constitutional question seriously will result in diminished confidence in our system of free and fair elections:

We, the undersigned, assert our rights as citizens of the United States in demanding that the Constitution's eligibility requirement be taken seriously and that any and all controlling legal authorities in this matter examine the complete birth certificate of Barack Obama, including the actual city and hospital of birth, and make that document available to the American people for inspection, and further conduct a thorough investigation of the unusual background of Barack Obama to establish, beyond a reasonable doubt, that he is constitutionally eligible to serve as president.

A Few Questions And Answers To Ponder From Leo Donofrio's Web Site:

Persident Chester Authur Was A FRAUD As IS obama

Leo, since BHObama asserts he was a dual citizen at birth, having British citizen status–and U.S. if born in Hawai’i), would he then be a ‘naturalized citizen’ when his British citizenship expired (by his assertion)?

It is my understanding that a naturalized citizen cannot be eligible for president.

[ed. Note - He would be a citizen by the 14th Amendment as long as Wong Kim Arc is good law. ]


[Ed. Note - Nobody looked into Arthur's father's naturalization because they were all looking into whether he was born abroad, just like until October 27, everybody was looking at Obama's BC, and nobody was looking into the fact that he was a British citizen when he was born. It was hiding in plain site right beneath the COLB at fight the smears. People were hypnotized by the BC and neglected to look at the real issue right in front of their eyes. Same thing happened with Arthur, Hinman whipped everybody up to a frenzy saying look over here to the right, but the real shizzle was going down on the left.

Also, Arthur fabricated his father's immigration history, age, where he arrived in the new world, his mother's time in Canada and his own age... plus he burned all of his papers. By changing his age, he threw another wrench in the fabric of history. I don't blame you for being confused. So was everybody else.]

Excellent information, Leo.

If Chester merely had to be born on US soil to serve as President (as so many people insist is the case for Obama), he wouldn’t have needed to lie about his past, right?

[Ed. Note - exactly Melissa.]

Bill Asks

Does this mean there is a legal precedent for Obama if he is found to be a dual citizen just because Chester Arthur has been a past president and a dual citizen. Does the fact he concealed and lied about his dual citizenship matter? How will the supreme court view this if it considers your case, as a precedent or as just an historical fact? Will this help your case because you exposed the fraud of Chester Arthur? Its all very interesting. Thank you for all your effort. I hope you expose Obama for the fraud he is.

[Ed. Note - No such thing as precedent from fraud. It could only be a precedent if it had been part of the public story of Chester Arthur, meaning everybody knew about it and accepted it as being cool. Not the case. During his time, he lied to obfuscate his family history. And he was a lawyer. Not cool. Not precedent. If it comes down to this, and Obama has to rely on Chester's Arthur to argue precedent, I think he'll be in trouble.]

[Ed. Note - We're not discussing citizenship. Chester Arthur was a Citizen. Obama is a Citizen. Neither were "natural born citizens" eligible to be President under the Constitution. The light starts to go for alot of people when they ask themselves, "What distinction did the Framers make reference to between "Citizens" who could be Senators and "Natural Born Citizens" who can be President. The SCOTUS has never decided this issue.]

[ed. - SCOTUS majority in Wong Kim Arc says person born in US to two Chinese nationals who are not US citizens is a "Citizen" - court discusses what a "Natural born citizen" is and mentions others cases which have discussed the term "natural born citizen" - court does NOT hold that Wong Kim Arc is a natural born citizen. Since the court could have, if it so chose, to hold that Wong Kim Arc was a nbc, but it didn't, the holding provides support for the argument that a nbc is somebody not only born in US, but who also is born to parents who are US citizens.]

[Ed. - three illegal names were on NJ ballots. McCain, Obama and Calero were all not eligible to be President.]

(I Agree Leo, All were not eligible to be president. Neither mccain nor obama were natural born citizens. In fact mccain seems to have been a citizen of panama at birth!) Story Reports

John Mccain Citizen Of Panama At Birth!

[Ed. There is no Constitutional provision, no statute and no SCOTUS case law which says that children born of resident aliens are natural born citizens.]

[Ed. Note - Residency of alien parents does not make their child a US citizen. This is precisely whey Wong Kim Arc was not held to be a natural born citizen. Such people are "Citizens". There is no law which supports this idea.]

[Ed. Mr. Obama has become a citizen of the US. His children were born in the US to two parents who are US citizens. They are natural born citizens eligible to be President. Furthermore, I do not believe Obama has dual nationality now, but he did have it at the time of his birth.]

(I don't think mr obama has proved or validated his citizenship. I don't know what Leo is basing his assumption on. There is no VALID proof obama is a US citizen. The document he provided on his web site cannot be validated as proof he is a US citizen. Until this is done obama can be assumed to be an ILLEGAL ALIEN as far as I am concerned.( Story Reports)

[Ed. - Makes no difference whatsoever whether a country claimed McCain. He was not born on US soil. He was born in Panama and as such he can never be a natural born citizen. His citizenship status was not derived naturally. He is not a 14th Amendment citizen and he's not natural born. McCain gets his citizenship form a statute and without the statute he wouldn't even be a citizen. Born on Panama soil. McCain is not a natural born citizen and both he and the Senate did great damage to this nation by saying he was. ]

(My research indicates as I said above john mccain was a citizen of panama at birth) Story Reports

John Mccain Citizen Of Panama At Birth!

[Ed. This is precisely why they included the grandfather clause. perhaps you've only been reading the mainstream media, but the actual law of the land says :

No person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President;

You see what they wrote? They were not natural born citizens. So, in order to allow them to be President, they wrote "or Citizens at the time of the adoption of this Constitution". They recognized that they themselves were not natural born citizens.]

Has anyone considered that Chester Arthur appointed Horace Gray to the SCOTUS? Gray was the author of U.S. vs Wong Kim Ark. How ironic is that?

[Ed. Nice find. Wild.]

[Ed.I argue that a natural born citizen is somebody born in the US and BOTH parents are citizens, not just one.]

[Ed. The 14th Amendment only confers citizenship, not Natural Born Citizenship. The Constitution uses the terms for different things.]

(This is a KEY fact. People get this confused. To be president you must be a natural born citizen not just a citizen.) Story Reports

[Ed. Every other President we've had was born in the US to two US parents unless they were Pres under grandfather clause.]

[Ed. - The grandfather clause was pointed out to show that the Framers made a distinction between "Citizens" and "Natural born citizens", and it's not the only relevant point on this issue. The requirements for Senate and Representative are also reduced to "Citizen".]

[Ed. The term "natural born citizen" refers to a status which you must attain at the time you are "born". If you aren't a natural born citizen at birth, you'll never be one. Also, the 14th Amendment confers the status of "Citizen" not "Natural born citizen".]

[Ed. 14th Amendment only deal with "citizen" status, it doesn't confer "natural born citizen".]

[Ed. It does require state authorities enforce the Constitution when their oath of office includes the duty to "uphold the Constitution"... upholding the Constitution is different than enforcing something like an FEC code... I didn't rely on the FEC codes at all, just the Constitution.]

[Ed. McCain was not and never will be a natural born citizen of the US. He was born in Colon Panama... ]

Obama is a traitor as are all in congress who support obama. Barney frank leads the way.


Unqualified home buyers were not the only ones who benefitted from Massachusetts Rep. Barney Frank’s efforts to deregulate Fannie Mae throughout the 1990s, so did Frank’s partner, herb moses, a Fannie Mae executive at the forefront of the agency’s push to relax lending restrictions.

Frank met Moses in 1987, the same year he became the first openly gay member of Congress.

"I am the only member of the congressional gay spouse caucus," Moses wrote in the Washington Post in 1991. "On Capitol Hill, Barney always introduces me as his lover."

The two lived together in a Washington home until they broke up in 1998, a few months after Moses ended his seven-year tenure at Fannie Mae, where he was the assistant director of product initiatives. According to National Mortgage News, Moses "helped develop many of Fannie Mae’s affordable housing and home improvement lending programs."

The biggest villain in the whole financial meltdown isn't the "private sector," as some in Congress — like Rep. Frank — have tried to claim. It's Congress itself, and barney frank. Govenment influenced wallstreet to go bust. Barney frank played the race card when he was warned feddie mac and fannie mae were about to go bust. His "boyfriend" at the time was over freedie mac. While barney was groping, congress was requiring banks to make bad loans. Barney and the democrates created the manufactured financial crisis. Yes it was barney gay boy frank and his fellow democrates that pushed the economic system over the edge. Democrates created a crisis that obama would not let go to waste. Barney set America up for a fall so the FRAUD obama could appear to solve a manufactured crisis by pushing the US in debt. This was a cover to make the US economic system collapse. Obama and the democrates could claim they did their best to solve the crisis they created by spending the US into economic destruction. Obama and all his fellow comrades have a plan to destroy capitalism. It is working. Obama is a traitor as are all in congress who support obama. Americans must fight for their freedoms. Domestic enemies have taken over the federal government in the form of elected "officials" who are ruling and not responsive to the people as "elected" officials. Story Reports

Greenspan implied it was Congress' meddling incompetence — not the Fed, or free markets, or greedy bankers — that created the financial meltdown

Regulation:

Sometimes, long after their public careers are done, those once in power speak openly about the past. Like Alan Greenspan, who on Wednesday told Congress what he could never tell them while in office.

Testifying before the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission, the former Fed chairman told some plain truths he didn't dare utter when he headed the central bank. Most notably, Greenspan implied it was Congress' meddling incompetence — not the Fed, or free markets, or greedy bankers — that created the financial meltdown.

"If the Fed as a regulator had tried to thwart what everyone perceived as a fairly broad consensus that the trend was in the right direction, homeownership was rising and that was an unmitigated good, then Congress would have clamped down on us," he said.

That, of course, is dead right. But the maestro wasn't finished.

"There's a presumption that the Federal Reserve's an independent agency, and it is up to a point, but we are a creature of Congress and if ... we had said we're running into a bubble and we need to retrench, the Congress would say 'we haven't a clue what you're talking about,'" he said.

Indeed, that's precisely what happened.

Yes, the Fed may have kept interest rates too low for too long in the middle of this decade. But it also might be true that it had no other real choice — given the sluggish recovery following the 2000 stock market meltdown, the 2001 recession and the 9/11 attacks.

Regardless, it wasn't the Fed that caused the housing crash and financial meltdown. It was Congress and the White House.

(Yes bush is also to blame. He could have done more to stop the fed I believe. Only congress could have made the fed, fannie mae, feddie mac be responsible. Congress let the crisis be created when congress under the control of the democrates could have stopped the comming meltdown. Congress wanted to create the manufactured crisis. The democratic congress would do anything to stay in power.) Story Reports

The mess began in the 1970s when, during the Carter administration, left-wing activists attacked banks for supposed "redlining" practices that let them discriminate in making home loans.

In response, Congress passed the Community Reinvestment Act, which gave regulators the power to force banks to lend money to "low-income, minority, and distressed neighborhoods."

To fund all this new lending, they used two little-known government-sponsored enterprises — Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac — and essentially rewrote credit standards for the banks, weakening them substantially. Banks made loans, then Fannie and Freddie bought them — using borrowed money to do it.

In this environment, credit ratings no longer mattered much. Neither did having a job or a steady income. What mattered was race.

The process got supercharged in 1992, when a Democrat-led Congress pushed Fannie and Freddie to buy even more mortgages from banks that had made loans to low-income and minority buyers. In 1996, President Clinton's Department of Housing and Urban Development told Fannie and Freddie that 42% of their financing had to go to those with incomes below the median.

By 2000, HUD Secretary Andrew Cuomo proudly unveiled "new regulations" to "provide $2.4 trillion in mortgages for affordable housing for 28.1 million families." Despite subsequent efforts at reform, Democrats in Congress — led by Sen. Chris Dodd and Rep. Barney Frank — rejected major changes to Fannie and Freddie.

(Yes dodd and frank were responsible for not changing the policies of fannie and freddie. Their democrate leader bill clinton didn't try to do anything to curtail the wild, crazy, insane policy of making loans to people who could not afford them. He added fuel to the fire just like "butt buddy" barney frank did. Congress ignored the warnings. These two bums added even more fuel to the manufactured crisis. The DEMOCRATES CREATED THE MANUFACTUTED FINANCIAL CRISIS! The democrates are still manufacturing the "FINANCIAL CRISIS." Reagan said, "In this time of financial crisis it is not the government that is the answer it is the government that is the problem" Reagan was correct. The manufactured democratic congress created a massive slush fund to be used for their own reelection. This is the dirty little secret.) Story Reports

We're still paying for that today. Fannie and Freddie have gotten a blank check from the government for their losses, and still owe more than $5 trillion that they can't pay off.

We've been critical of Greenspan in the past, but on this, he's completely right. The biggest villain in the whole financial meltdown isn't the "private sector," as some in Congress — like Rep. Frank — have tried to claim. It's Congress itself, UNDER THE CONTROL OF THE DEMOCRATES.

Obama supporters are similar to japs in world war 2 that would do anything for their master


In this Feb. 10, 2010 photo, Fox News political analyst Angela McGlowan announces at the Tupelo, Miss., City Hall, that she is running for the 1st Congressional District as a Republican. Black conservatives are taking heat for their involvement in the mostly white tea party movement, and McGlowan has spoken at several tea party events.

(Yes there are also black Americans who believe barack obama must be removed from office because he is a liar. Many black American's know obama is a FRAUD. These people have taken the time to inform other black Americans that their "brother" is an IMPOSTER. Other blacks call anti obama supporters oreos, traitors and uncle toms. I call them Americans, patriots and freedom fighters. Many white and black people refuse to accept the truth obama is a radical communist imposter. Those that give a shout out to obama in the form of resign or be impeached receive insults from brothers that are grafted into obama. These people are not worth wasting time on because they have "drank the cool aid" and are in a ritual that requires them to never reject anything obama says or does. They are in fact obama "slaves" who will do anything for their master of deception. Lincoln freed the slaves and obama inslaved them again and they don't realize it. Any opposition to obama and the "race card" is played to counter the truth. Obama is a racist, not only when it comes to whites but with his own "people".) Story Reports
.........................................................................................

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - They've been called Oreos, traitors and Uncle Toms, and are used to having to defend their values. Now black conservatives are really taking heat for their involvement in the mostly white tea party movement—and for having the audacity to oppose the policies of the nation's first black president.

"I've been told I hate myself. I've been called an Uncle Tom. I've been told I'm a spook at the door," said Timothy F. Johnson, chairman of the Frederick Douglass Foundation, a group of black conservatives who support free market principles and limited government.

"Black Republicans find themselves always having to prove who they are. Because the assumption is the Republican Party is for whites and the Democratic Party is for blacks," he said.

Johnson and other black conservatives say they were drawn to the tea party movement because of what they consider its commonsense fiscal values of controlled spending, less taxes and smaller government. The fact that they're black—or that most tea partyers are white—should have nothing to do with it, they say.

"You have to be honest and true to yourself. What am I supposed to do, vote Democratic just to be popular? Just to fit in?" asked Clifton Bazar, a 45-year-old New Jersey freelance photographer and conservative blogger.

Opponents have branded the tea party as a group of racists hiding behind economic concerns—and reports that some tea partyers were lobbing racist slurs at black congressmen during last month's heated health care vote give them ammunition.

But these black conservatives don't consider racism representative of the movement as a whole—or race a reason to support it.

Angela McGlowan, a black congressional candidate from Mississippi, said her tea party involvement is "not about a black or white issue."

"It's not even about Republican or Democrat, from my standpoint," she told The Associated Press. "All of us are taxed too much."

Still, she's in the minority. As a nascent grassroots movement with no registration or formal structure, there are no racial demographics available for the tea party movement; it's believed to include only a small number of blacks and Hispanics.

Some black conservatives credit President Barack Obama's election—and their distaste for his policies—with inspiring them and motivating dozens of black Republicans to plan political runs in November.

For black candidates like McGlowan, tea party events are a way to reach out to voters of all races with her conservative message.

"I'm so proud to be a part of this movement! I want to tell you that a lot of people underestimate you guys," the former national political commentator for Fox News told the cheering crowd at a tea party rally in Nashville, Tenn., in February.

Tea party voters represent a new model for these black conservatives—away from the black, liberal Democratic base located primarily in cities, and toward a black and white conservative base that extends into the suburbs.

Black voters have overwhelmingly backed Democratic candidates, support that has only grown in recent years. In 2004, presidential candidate Sen. John Kerry won 88 percent of the black vote; four years later, 95 percent of black voters cast ballots for Obama.

Black conservatives don't want to have to apologize for their divergent views.

"I've gotten the statement, 'How can you not support the brother?'" said David Webb, an organizer of New York City's Tea Party 365, Inc. movement and a conservative radio personality.

Since Obama's election, Webb said some black conservatives have even resorted to hiding their political views.

"I know of people who would play the (liberal) role publicly, but have their private opinions," he said. "They don't agree with the policy but they have to work, live and exist in the community ... Why can't we speak openly and honestly if we disagree?"

Among the 37 black Republicans running for U.S. House and Senate seats in November is Charles Lollar of Maryland's 5th District.

A tea party supporter running against House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D-Md., Lollar says he's finding support in unexpected places.

The 38-year-old U.S. Marine Corps reservist recently walked into a bar in southern Maryland decorated with a Confederate flag. It gave his wife Rosha pause.

"I said, 'You know what, honey? Many, many of our Southern citizens came together under that flag for the purpose of keeping their family and their state together,'" Lollar recalled. "The flag is not what you're to fear. It's the stupidity behind the flag that is a problem. I don't think we'll find that in here. Let's go ahead in."

Once inside, they were treated to a pig roast, a motorcycle rally—and presented with $5,000 in contributions for his campaign.

McGlowan, one of three GOP candidates in north Mississippi's 1st District primary, seeks a seat held since 2008 by Democrat Travis Childers. The National Republican Congressional Committee has supported Alan Nunnelee, chairman of the state Senate Appropriations Committee, who is also pursuing tea party voters.

McGlowan believes the tea party movement has been unfairly portrayed as monolithically white, male and middle-aged, though she acknowledged blacks and Hispanics are a minority at most events.

Racist protest signs at some tea party rallies and recent reports by U.S. Reps. John Lewis, D-Ga., and Barney Frank, D-Mass., that tea partyers shouted racial and anti-gay slurs at them have raised allegations of racism in the tea party movement.

Black members of the movement say it is not inherently racist, and some question the reported slurs. "You would think—something that offensive—you would think someone got video of it," Bazar, the conservative blogger, said.

"Just because you have one nut case, it doesn't automatically equate that you've got an organization that espouses (racism) as a sane belief," Johnson said.

Hilary Shelton, director of the Washington bureau of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, suggested a bit of caution.

"I'm sure the reason that (black conservatives) are involved is that from an ideological perspective, they agree," said Shelton. "But when those kinds of things happen, it is very important to be careful of the company that you keep."

Obama Is A Traitor An Enemy Of America


Keep in mind william charles ayers was obama's employer and held his first fundraiser for political office in his house. A terrorist hires obama and raises funds for him. These funds helped to elect the FRAUD and domestic terrorist obama. Now the domestic terrorist obama is using the power of the federal government against the will of the American people. Obama and his fellow terrorist friends from chicago have an agenda. It is to destroy America.

Obama Is A Traitor An Enemy Of America

The enemy is "president" obama. A FRAUD who was elected through deception of the DNC.

The domestic enemies have dictated to Americans via obamacare.

Now obama is going to disarm America.

"The United States will pledge not to use nuclear weapons against most non-nuclear countries -- no matter what they use against us -- but will keep "all options" on the table for nations like North Korea and Iran, Defense Secretary Robert Gates said Tuesday."

Gates said, "countries that don't have nuclear capabilities that are following the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, Gates said they need not fear the United States' still-vast nuclear stockpile."

"The United States pledges not to use or threaten to use nuclear weapons against (those countries)," Gates said -- even in the case of a biological or chemical attack.

"I'm going to preserve all the tools that are necessary in order to make sure that the people are safe and secure," Obama told the Times.

(This is a bold face lie. Obama is disarming America. He is telling all terrorists even in the case of a biological or chemical attack the US will not use its nuclear weapons. A biological or chemical attack on America could kill millions yet obama is telling terrorists they have nothing to fear when it comes to nuclear weapons to deter the killing of possibly millions of Americans. How does this make American's feel safe and secure? It makes me feel like the "president " of the US is a terrorist dictator. The tool he is talking about using is the iron fist of the government against opposition to his radical dictatorship.) Story Reports

Gates on Tuesday also announced major changes in the positioning of nuclear-armed intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs). (Gates is a traitor also.)

"Our ICBMs are all targeted right now on the oceans, so that if, God forbid ... for the first time in 60 years there were an accidental launch, or a problem ... it would put a missile right into the middle of the ocean, rather than targeted on any country", Gates said.

(Does this make you sick like me? If the ICBM's were needed to defend Americans because of a russian or other country's missle attack obama has made sure America CANNOT RESPOND because he has decreed our military must point our missles toward the oceans and not potential enemies. Obama is exposing America to a first strike destruction of America.) Story Reports

Prior to this review, all ICBM's were pointed at potential targets, most of them in Eastern Europe. Obama's message is that the U.S. will abandon that Cold War mentality and holster its guns, rather than keep them pointed at a possible threat.

(You and I know obama would rip your gun from your side if he could and command you to point it at the ground if a potential murder or thief was about to blow you away. This is insane. Who else are you aware of thats insane. None other than satan.) Story Reports

Obama declared war on America! If you can't see this fact you to are the enemy also. The enemy that would destroy America through an elected dictatorship. I hope America can overcome the enemy within, obama and his fellow radicals. If obama allows his comrades to use biological or chemical weapons at specific targets he can then kill people who oppose him by letting his terrorist buddies do his dirty work. To obama it would be a cleansing or purging like hitler or stalin.

When I look at obama I see a manikin who mimics a human. I see a shell of a being that has no humanity toward people who oppose him in any way. I see a modern day manifestation of corruption and destruction. I see evil on display, barack hussein obama.

ATTORNEY GENERAL MARK BENNETT SAYS THEY HAVE “NO GOVERNMENT DOCUMENTS PERTAINING TO THE PREPARATION OF THE PUBLIC STATEMENTS MADE BY DR. FUKINO"


ATTORNEY GENERAL MARK BENNETT’S OFFICE SAYS THEY HAVE “NO GOVERNMENT DOCUMENTS PERTAINING TO THE PREPARATION OF THE PUBLIC STATEMENTS MADE BY DR. FUKINO”

Hawwiian Attory General Says There Is No Records Of Dr Fukinos Statements In Support Of Obama

As the attorney general claims it has “no government documents pertaining to the preparation of the public statements made by Dr. Fukino in regard to vital records which pertain to Barack Hussein Obama II,” then either the attorney general is lying and breaking the law, or Dr. Fukino and Janice Okubo are.

(Okubo says attorney general reviewed and approved her statement yet the attorney general says their are no government documents pertainng to the statements made by fukino about the FRAUD obama. Many times people who have supported obama have referred to okubo's statements about obama. As I have said all along okubo's statements mean nothing without verification of her assurance obama has a "birth certificate" and that he is a natural born citizen. All her statements are not backed up by the attorney general of Hawaii. She has lied about obama to cover up for his hoax or being born in Hawaii. Obama's birth place can't be verified and neither can this officals statements.) Story Reports

A lie about the FRAUD obama.

The statement was reviewed and approved by our Attorney General Mark Bennett. I am unable to provide further comment.

Dr. Chiyome Fukino, Director of the Hawaii Department of Health

(Mar. 28, 2010) — The Post & Email is in receipt of a letter signed by Jill T. Nagamine, Deputy Attorney General of the State of Hawaii, which affirms her email early last month to our Editor-in-Chief, Mr. John Charlton, stating that her office will not or cannot corroborate any of the Department of Health’s public statements regarding the alleged birth of Barack Hussein Obama in Hawaii.

Ms. Nagamine’s March 19, 2010 formal letter was sent in response to the Hawaii Petition Campaign’s request for Hawaii officials to release Obama’s birth records and proof that he is a “natural born Citizen” as required for the office of President by Article II, Section 1, paragraph 5 of the U.S. Constitution.

On July 27, 2009, Dr. Chiyome Fukino, Director of the Hawaii Department of Health, issued a public statement which declared that Obama was “born in Hawai’i” and a “natural-born American citizen.” She did not expound on how she arrived at her conclusions. An earlier statement made on October 31, 2008 was less specific, claiming only that Fukino had seen Obama’s vital records on file with her department.

The office of the attorney general has now contradicted in a formal letter the content of an email sent by Janice Okubo, Public Information Officer at the Hawaii Department of Health, in which she responded to a student researcher that the attorney general, Mark Bennett, “had reviewed and approved” Dr. Fukino’s July 27 statement:

From: Justin Riggs [email address redacted]
Date: Wed, Jul 29, 2009 at 12:03 PM
To: …janice.okubo@doh.hawaii.gov, [redacted other recipient]

…Ms. Okubo,

I am currently a masters degree candidate at …

The reason that I am contacting your organizations is that you are, as far as I can tell from my research, the only two groups that have openly stated that President Obama is a natural born citizen (one of the Article II, Section I qualifications for being President). I would like to document how you came to that conclusion: i.e. what the criteria is for your organization, what evidence the candidate provides, etc. I thank you for your time, and look forward to receiving a response in the near future.

Sincerely,

Justin W. Riggs

Janice Okubo responded later that day:

From: Okubo, Janice S..
Date: Wed, Jul 29, 2009 at 12:20 PM
To: Justin Riggs [email address redacted]…

Aloha Justin,

The statement was reviewed and approved by our Attorney General Mark Bennett. I am unable to provide further comment.

Janice Okubo
Communications Office
Hawaii State Department of Health…

Hawaii UIPA law requires that state officials and agencies must make information available to the public which is used to formulate public statements and opinions. However, despite many requests for the “index data” relied upon to prepare Dr. Fukino’s statements, no information has been forthcoming from anyone at the Hawaii Department of Health. The very limited index data released by Dr. Fukino on the Health Department’s website does not contain enough information to substantiate Fukino’s claim that Obama is a “natural-born American citizen.”

The Post & Email reported the initial email exchange between Ms. Nagamine and Mr. Charlton on February 2, 2010.

As the attorney general claims it has “no government documents pertaining to the preparation of the public statements made by Dr. Fukino in regard to vital records which pertain to Barack Hussein Obama II,” then either the attorney general is lying and breaking the law, or Dr. Fukino and Janice Okubo are.

Why are Fukino and Okubo the only ones talking? And why does Fukino “strongly support” SB2937, which, although recommended to be “deferred” on March 16, 2010, is now headed towards passage to block requests made under the state’s own UIPA law?

To what lengths are Okubo and Fukino willing to go to protect Obama? Why are they doing it, and what do they expect to gain from it? What do they fear they will lose if they do not continue their charade?

There is no one else in Hawaii claiming that Obama was born there. No other public official will confirm it. The birthplace of past presidents has always been common knowledge which becomes part of our nation’s history and our children’s textbooks. Why, then, the secrecy? What is it that Obama is going to extraordinary lengths to hide?

(The scheme of obama is beginning to unravel. Nov 2010 will be a critical time. Obama knows he must do all his dirty deeds before he is limited by a new congress that will not be a socialist rubber stamp. Obama knows people are trying to expose him as a FRAUD and soon may be successful. Therefore he knows his time is short to put into place everything it will take for him to rule with an iron fist. Americans must resist the shadow dictator at all costs or lose our freedoms. We must stop obama and his communist/fascist hell bent quest to destroy America.) Story Reports

Lt. Col. Lakin, a birther, is refusing all orders until obama releases his long-form, hospital-generated birth certificate to prove his eligibility


Safeguard our Constitution

Lakin, an 18-year veteran, personally pleads with the president to stop withholding the key document which would put to rest many of the doubts that continue to linger more than a year into Obama's term.

"President Obama, I ask you to respect and uphold the Constitution. Be transparent and show your honesty and integrity. Release your original, signed birth certificate, if you have one, thus proving your birth on American soil, and thus assure the American people that you are lawfully eligible to hold the office of the presidency and serve as commander in chief of the Armed Forces."

Eligibility challenger says prove you are a US citizen

.......................................................................................
(I suspect obama cannot release his original long form certification of live birth because it would expose him as a FRAUD. The other possiblility is the original long form certificate of live birth does not exist. I say this because obama has only shown a short form certification of live birth on his web site that HAS NOT BEEN ACCEPTED BY THE REGISTRAR!. His fake "birth certificate" only says at the bottom that it has BEEN FILED. Being filed and accepted are like night and day. Also any and all statements from "officals" in Hawaii mean nothing. Why? Because any offical's statements cannot be verified. This is the elephant in the room no one is talking about. Only a validated original with his parents signatures, doctors signature, state seal and exact place of birth indicating the hospital in Hawaii can verify obama was born in Hawaii and nowhere else as could possibly be the case. This is because Hawaii pronounced anyone born out of the country as an Hawaiian citizen if only a friend or relative filed a form with a statement the person had parents that had lived in Hawaii 1 year prior to the birth. Obama could have been born anywhere except Hawaii and Hawaii would proclaim him as an Hawaiian citizen with little proof. I want to see the documentation, if any, along with the long form that proves obama is a US citizen and not an illegal alien. As of this date obama is an undocumented alien that can't prove his citizenship in a court of law or to any American citizen! Proof is required to verify where obama was born. If its Kenya obama is not a US citizen. If its Hawaii obama is not a natural born citizen as required by the US Constitution. The US Constituion only requires a president to be a natural born citizen. This is a US citizen born to parents that are both US citizens. Obama must hide the truth. Obama is a FRAUD.) Story Reports

Lt. Col. Lakin, a birther, is refusing all orders until obama releases his long-form, hospital-generated birth certificate to prove his eligibility to serve as president.

"I feel I have no choice but the distasteful one of inviting my own court martial," Lakin said in a statement. "The Constitution matters. The truth matters."

"For the first time in all my years of service to our great nation, and at great peril to my career and future, I am choosing to disobey what I believe are illegal orders, including an order to deploy to Afghanistan for my second tour of duty there. I will disobey my orders to deploy because I – and I believe all servicemen and women and the American people – deserve the truth about President Obama's constitutional eligibility to the office of the presidency and the commander in chief.

"If he is ineligible, then my orders – and indeed all orders – are illegal because all orders have their origin with the commander in chief as handed down through the chain of command."

The Lakin case presents a problem for the Army, since it cannot simply "rescind" orders as it has in previous military disputes over orders under Obama's chain of command. That's because Lakin has indicated plans to reject all orders.

A Medical Doctor Helps Reveal The FRAUD obama and his obamacare


A Medical Doctor Helps Reveal The FRAUD obama

A doctor in Flordia is telling the truth about obamacare. He is correct. A sign on his door reads: “If you voted for Obama … seek urologic care elsewhere. Changes to your healthcare begin right now, not in four years.”

What he is telling his patients and the general public is that obama is a LIAR. Dr. Jack Cassell, 56, a Mount Dora urologist is helping to expose the FRAUD of obamacare and what it actually does. He has been bold enough to put his life and job on the line for Americans. He is telling his patients to dig deeper below the "state run media" side show of obamacare and read the facts of how obamacare will destroy America and American lives. This man should be given a medal for courage!

.......................................................................................
Read the facts for yourself and become informed. Don't believe the "state run medaia" lies of obama and his fellow Liberal socialist comrades.

In his waiting room, Cassell also has provided his patients with photocopies of a health-care timeline produced by Republican leaders that outlines “major provisions” in the health-care package. The doctor put a sign above the stack of copies that reads: “This is what the morons in Washington have done to your health care. Take one, read it and vote out anyone who voted for it.”

(I have provided the same copy Dr Cassel has provided to his patients. This has been done to educate the uninformed and deceived public about the provisions of obamacare. Take the time to read the above time line of what obamacare will do. It does not include the additional last minute changes that the democrates voted on and had not read in the obamacare bill. As you can see by the time line its all about government control of every aspect of you health care and life. Obamacare is all about stripping away your personal freedoms. Yes all the Liberal democrates voted for a bill they had not read but passed it anyway. Our government is not longer representing the will of the people when congress passes a "law" that had not been fully amended nor published for inspection before it was vote on. We have a form now of DICTATORSHIP under the leadership of a FRAUD!) Story Reports

“I’m not turning anybody away — that would be unethical,” Dr. Jack Cassell, 56, a Mount Dora urologist and a registered Republican opposed to the health plan, told the Orlando Sentinel on Thursday. “But if they read the sign and turn the other way, so be it.”

(The good doctor is saying if you believe everything obama says then you are STUPID! If you voted for obama, now he has seen to it that your health care system is going to over a short period of time be destroyed and the federal government will enure that your quality of life will be greatly decreased or eliminated. Dr Cassell is telling everyone be aware of whom you voted for. You voted for a FRAUD! Your voted for an IMPOSTER! You voted for your own medical destruction via obamacare beginning NOW! Dr Cassell is also saying read the bill. Read what obama has in store for you. Obama is the "Dr. Kevorkian" of health care. Obama will see to it that you get the best health care your deserve with a big push from obamacare into an early grave.) Story Reports

Why Obama is ineligible – regardless of his birthplace

Why Obama is ineligible – regardless of his birthplace

By Leo C. Donofrio, Esq.

The following discussion assumes President Obama was born in Hawaii and is a United States citizen.

The purpose of this article is to highlight judicial and historical evidence suggesting that a "natural born citizen" must be born in the United States to parents who are citizens. By that definition, Obama is not eligible to be president. Therefore, his presidency and official administrative acts remain subject to being rendered void by the Supreme Court.

The relevant Obama admission

At the official Obama campaign website – Fightthesmears.com – just below the Certification of Live Birth (COLB) – the following admission was also published:

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.
This was republished from a Factcheck.org, article which further stated:

In other words, at the time of his birth, Barack Obama Jr. was both a U.S. citizen (by virtue of being born in Hawaii) and a citizen of the United Kingdom and Colonies (or the UKC) by virtue of being born to a father who was a citizen of the UKC.
The constitutional question presented is whether a person born with citizenship in and allegiance to a foreign nation can be considered a "natural born citizen" of the United States as required by Article II, Section 1.

The U.S. State Department's Foreign Affairs Manual discusses problems associated with dual citizenship:

7 FAM 081: U.S. Policy on Dual Nationality:
(e)While recognizing the existence of dual nationality, the U.S. Government does not encourage it as a matter of policy because of the problems it may cause. Dual nationality may hamper efforts by the U.S. Government to provide diplomatic and consular protection to individuals overseas. When a U.S. citizen is in the other country of their dual nationality, that country has a predominant claim on the person.

This helps explain why the definition of "natural born citizen" as one born in the nation to parents who are citizens makes perfect sense in that such a person will not be infected by dual-allegiance problems. If the parents are citizens, neither will confer allegiance to a foreign nation. Additionally, if one is born on soil foreign to the parents, that nation is likely to recognize the person as a citizen. Owing allegiance to more than one nation is an unnatural circumstance of citizenship.

While the Constitution requires representatives, senators and presidents to be citizens, Article II, Section 1, additionally requires that the president's citizenship be "natural born." A natural born citizen is not a higher level of citizen. "Natural born" simply describes a circumstance of citizenship.

There are multiple circumstances that create "citizens at birth." Some require a federal statute for citizenship while others rely on the 14th Amendment. Had the framers of the 14th Amendment sought to deem every person born in the United States a natural born citizen, they certainly could have included such plain, unequivocal language. But they didn't.

In 1790, the first Congress deemed all persons born of two United States citizen parents abroad to be "natural born citizens," but the words "natural born" were repealed in 1795. Congress never again legislated the definition of "natural born citizen," and no United States statute currently defines the term or even mentions it.

The citizenship of a person born in the United States to parents who are citizens is self-evident and has never required naturalization, a federal statute or an amendment, and the Supreme Court has indicated that such persons are the only citizens who satisfy the natural born citizen requirement of Article II, Section 1.

Origin of the natural born citizen clause

The strict constitutional requirements were enacted to exclude citizens for the sake of national security in safeguarding the office from inexperience and from persons who may not have sole allegiance. It appears the clause was first introduced for constitutional consideration in a letter from John Jay to George Washington dated July 25, 1787:

Permit me to hint whether it would not be wise and seasonable to provide a strong check to the admission of Foreigners into the administration of our national Government, and to declare expressly that the Commander in Chief of the American army shall not be given to nor devolve on, any but a natural born Citizen.
Jay underlined "born" which signifies the importance of allegiance from birth. The "natural born" requirement renders irrelevant that a person – born to foreign or dual allegiance – may not have renewed his foreign citizenship upon reaching maturity. One is either eligible to be president at birth, or one will never be eligible.

An important historical definition of "natural born citizen" comes from a 1797 translation of the "Law of Nations," a 1758 text by Emerich de Vattel, which summarized that body of international law known also as the "Law of Nations":

The citizens are the members of the civil society: bound to this society by certain duties, and subject to its authority, they equally participate in its advantages. The natives, or natural-born citizens, are those born in the country, of parents who are citizens.

Note that a child of former aliens can be a natural born citizen under this standard if born in the United States to parents who were naturalized prior to the child's birth. That was made clear by the Supreme Court's opinion in Perkins v. Elg.

It appears from James Madison's notes of August 1787 that the delegates used the terms "native" and "natural born citizen" synonymously. Additionally, Ben Franklin stated that the framers frequently consulted Vattel's text. Also consider that Article I, Section 8, grants Congress the authority to "punish ... offenses against the Law of Nations."

In the case of The Venus 12 U.S. 253, 289 (1814), Chief Justice John Marshall stated:

Vattel, who, though not very full to this point, is more explicit and more satisfactory on it than any other whose work has fallen into my hands, says "The citizens are the members of the civil society; bound to this society by certain duties, and subject to its authority, they equally participate in its advantages. The natives or indigenes are those born in the country of parents who are citizens. ..."
Chief Justice Marshall relied upon a pre-1797 edition of Vattel's text. The 1797 translation was adopted by the Supreme Court in Minor v. Happersett, 88 U.S. 162 (1874), where Chief Justice Waite stated:

The Constitution does not, in words, say who shall be natural-born citizens. Resort must be had elsewhere to ascertain that. At common-law, with the nomenclature of which the framers of the Constitution were familiar, it was never doubted that all children born in a country of parents who were its citizens became themselves, upon their birth, citizens also. These were natives, or natural-born citizens, as distinguished from aliens or foreigners. Some authorities go further and include as citizens children born within the jurisdiction without reference to the citizenship of their parents. As to this class there have been doubts, but never as to the first. ...
It's significant that this decision was issued six years after the 14th Amendment was enacted. As such, Minor illustrates that the 14th Amendment simply defines who is a citizen, not which citizens are natural born.

If Obama had run for president in 1874 – six years after the 14th Amendment went into effect – he wouldn't have been eligible since he doesn't fit the Minor Court's standard for a natural born citizen.

The strange case of Chester Arthur

The holding in Minor v. Happersett must have given Chester Arthur nightmares when he ran for vice president in 1880, six years after Minor. Arthur, a prominent New York lawyer, managed to conceal from public view that his father didn't become a naturalized citizen until 14 years after he was born. Therefore Chester Arthur was a British subject at birth.

Arthur's deception in concealing this fact involved numerous lies to the Brooklyn Eagle newspaper concerning his father's heritage, immigration and age. He also quite famously burned most of his papers and lied about his own age.

Historical records bear witness that this issue was never discussed in relation to Chester Arthur's eligibility until recently. Helping to cloud the issue all these years was a famous conspiracy theory expounded by a New York lawyer named Arthur Hinman who alleged Chester Arthur was born in Canada and was therefore not eligible. This sensational and unfounded conspiracy theory took the spotlight and unfortunately provided a smokescreen to conceal the true eligibility defect.

Chester Arthur is the only president prior to Obama who – after the grandfather clause of Article II, Section 1, expired – was not born in the United States of two citizen parents. As such, Obama supporters have sought to use Chester Arthur as precedent for justifying Obama's eligibility. Such reliance is unfounded because it wasn't known at the time Chester Arthur held office that he was born with dual nationality. That this was concealed from the general public is confirmed by two important law review articles.

In the September/October 1884 issue of The American Law Review, George C. Collins discussed the citizenship status of persons born on U.S. soil to foreign parents. In the concluding paragraph, Collins stated:

Birth, therefore, does not ipso facto confer citizenship, and it is essential in order that a person be a native or natural born citizen of the United States, that his father be at the time of the birth of such person a citizen thereof, or in case he be illegitimate, that his mother be a citizen thereof at the time of such birth.
It's ridiculous to imagine the sitting president wouldn't be mentioned when the article concerns the issue of whether a person born of an alien father is even a United States citizen.

Chester Arthur's true eligibility defect doesn't appear to have been mentioned in any historical record until December 2008 when it was exposed at my blog. Clearly, Chester Arthur's deception cannot serve to validate anyone's presidential eligibility. He got away with it, but that doesn't make it right.

U.S. v. Wong Kim Ark, 169 U.S. 649 (1898)

In 1898, Justice Horace Gray wrote one of the most controversial opinions in Supreme Court history wherein a man born in the United States of Chinese alien parents was held to be a citizen. Wong Kim Ark is the precedent relied upon for the assertion that any person born on United States soil, regardless of parentage, is a citizen. But that's not accurate. The holding in Wong Kim Ark appears to require for citizenship that a person be born on United States soil to parents who are permanently domiciled here. If the domicile requirement is upheld in future cases, anchor babies will no longer be assumed to be United States citizens.

Regardless, the holding in Wong Kim Ark did not state that such a citizen was "natural born." In fact, Justice Gray reiterated the definition of natural born citizen as one born on United States soil to parents who are citizens when he favorably discussed Minor v. Happersett:

That neither Mr. Justice Miller nor any of the justices who took part in the decision of The Slaughterhouse Cases understood the court to be committed to the view that all children born in the United States of citizens or subjects of foreign States were excluded from the operation of the first sentence of the Fourteenth Amendment is manifest from a unanimous judgment of the Court, delivered but two years later, while all those judges but Chief Justice Chase were still on the bench, in which Chief Justice Waite said: "Allegiance and protection are, in this connection (that is, in relation to citizenship), reciprocal obligations. The one is a compensation for the other: allegiance for protection, and protection for allegiance. ... At common law, with the nomenclature of which the framers of the Constitution were familiar, it was never doubted that all children, born in a country of parents who were its citizens, became themselves, upon their birth, citizens also. These were natives, or natural-born citizens. ..."
While the dissent feared the majority holding would make Wong Kim Ark eligible to be president, Justice Gray's restatement of the Minor Court's definition of a natural born citizen as one born in the United States to parents who are citizens stands in direct contrast to the dissent's fear.

A few years after Wong Kim Ark was decided, the Albany Law Journal published an article by Alexander Porter Morse entitled, "NATURAL-BORN CITIZEN OF THE UNITED STATES: ELIGIBILITY FOR THE OFFICE OF PRESIDENT" (Albany Law Journal Vol. 66 (1904-1905)):

If it was intended that anybody who was a citizen by birth should be eligible, it would only have been necessary to say, "no person, except a native-born citizen"; but the framers thought it wise, in view of the probable influx of European immigration, to provide that the president should at least be the child of citizens owing allegiance to the United States at the time of his birth. It may be observed in passing that the current phrase "native-born citizen" is well understood; but it is pleonasm and should be discarded; and the correct designation, "native citizen" should be substituted in all constitutional and statutory enactments, in judicial decisions and in legal discussions where accuracy and precise language are essential to intelligent discussion.

The term "native born citizen" has been erroneously substituted for "natural born citizen" by numerous commentators. Mr. Morse correctly points out that the two are not synonymous. His article also proves once again that Chester Arthur's dual nationality was hidden from the public. There would have been no point in writing the article – which doesn't mention Chester Arthur – had the nation previously condoned a president born with dual allegiance.

The argument against Obama being eligible rests on multiple Supreme Court cases that define a "natural born citizen" as one born in the United States to parents who are citizens. This is not a political issue. It's a legal issue faced by a nation where nobody is supposed to be above the law. As such, it deserves judicial review.

[For the most comprehensive etymological deconstruction of the term "natural born Citizen," I strongly recommend, "What Is A Natural Born Citizen Of The United States?" by John Greschak.

No only is obama not eligible to be president because he is not a "natural born citizen" this blog entry exposes the fact that he is hiding his true identity and is a FRAUD

Obama is an IMPOSTER promoted by the DNC

Obama can't prove he is a US citizen with any document that can be validated by a US citizen or court of law. Obama is in fact an undocumented alien that has been elected president. (Story Reports)

The short form "certification of live birth" obama claims as proof he is a US citizen cannot be validated because Hawaii and obama will not let any US citizen validate his "certification of live birth". Its a limited information document with nothing that can be verfied. Obama hides behind the state of Hawaii and its deception of his true identity.
