The Heart of the Birth Controversy

Assigned Reading: Suborned in the U.S.A.
(FROM: National Review)

Even on the day I broke the story of the first lawsuit filed with regard to the ongoing controversy surrounding Barack Obama’s birth, I cautioned that I could not attest to the veracity of the claims in the suit. I still cannot, and I don’t see a problem with it. Why? Because, to me, the controversy isn’t just about Obama’s birth, but about his personal history and personal accountability as a whole.

Andrew McCarthy, in this lengthy article at National Review, does a phenomenal job of wrapping up exactly what the continued questions mean to me. (I say “lengthy” because reading it took up much of my time at this Internet terminal at a local mall, not as a judgment of how readable or necessary it may be.) See, the controversy has been about the greater issue of Barack Obama’s honesty — that’s why, as the theories became more and more “out there,” such as the Frank-Marshall-Davis-as-Barry’s-Real-Father idea, I drew further and further away here at America’s Right. To me, it’s never been about the details, never about the proverbial pissing match which erupted between various factions of those seeking the truth about Obama’s background. It’s been about his accountability, on this and on everything else. Not to mention the failure of the mainstream press to do its job.

Anyway, I saw the McCarthy piece, and felt that everyone here needed to read it. My time here is done. I’ll see all of you stateside in a few days’ time.

    At orly taitz' website, orlytaizesq.com, she has a photo of what appears to be an original birth certificate for Barack Hussein Obama II, born in Mombasa, Kenya. What's the story on that??? I know it can't be true, or else surely we would have heard about it by now. So…. anyone??

    To all
    OMG—Here is a blockbuster –if true!!!! WND has just published a story on Aug.2 "Breaking: Is this the smoking gun of Obama's Kenyan birth?"
    It shows two pictures of a document that appears to be an authentic birth certificate of Obama born in Kenya that Orly Taitz has asked a judge to protect and is asking for supena power to get other documents from Kenya and supena SOS Clinton to testify. She claims she has the original with signatures and now is forcing the issue that OBAMA MUST respond.

    You do realize that in 1961, Mombasa was part of Zanzibar when Obama was born right? Also when this so called BC was issued Kenya was not yet a Republic and wouldnt be for 8 months. You people will believe anything.

  5. whats_up says:

    What many American people do not know is that it does not matter at all whether or not Obama Hussein was born in the USA because to be a natural born citizen, you must have two American parents and Obama's father was never American!!!!

    This is untrue, no where in the Constitution or any US code does it say such a thing, do conservatives just make this up?

    Glenn,

    You might want to use just a little bit less of a chuckle in your voice when you refer to us 'birthers'. I myself would prefer the term 'truther'. Keep in mind it is not just a 'birth certificate', but having a Kenyan father, his college records, his suspect selective service record, suspect family death certificates and passport anomalies.

    And I have to say, this morning you said the DUMBEST thing I have EVER heard you say….. "and what would we be do anyway, remove him from office?". Hello, if Clinton can be impeached for lying under oath regarding oral sex, then a complete fraud of a president under THE CONSTITUTION can be. And if it is proven he is not constitutionally qualified he would not even have to be impeached, he could be arrested, seeing as how at that point he would not REALLY be president.

    Granted that would be an ugly scenario, but sometimes the TRUTH hurts and is painful.

    Please be less mocking, it really is unbecoming of you.

    Usually a proud listener,

    Sam

    Lets say this is true, and somebody made some big money out of selling out Obama. How can we make this news? What will prevent the media from ignoring this like they have everything else?

    I'm convinced this will be completely ignored and the media will soon come out with a Sara Palin story that makes no sense. We should be able to prove if this is legit and we should be able to march on Washington and through their asses out of our house!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Here is why Obama Hussein is not a natural born citizen. Most Americans have no clue whatsoever what "natural born citizen" really means. So here is a very good clarification on "YouTube – Exactly What IS a Natural Born Citizen?" at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QEnaAZrYqQI&eurl=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.orlytaitzesq.com%2Fnatural_born_citizen.htm&feature=player_embedded

    So you cant point to any US code or statute that requires both parents to be US citizens, you just are assuming that, thanks for playing, what an epic fail. On a side not I have a bridge to sell you, real cheap.

    To be of the utmost clarity on this matter of "natural born citizen". Here is a summary of the video below on what "natural born citizen" truly means:
    1) the person must be born in the USA.
    2) BOTH parents must be American citizen.
    That is the reason why I clearly said that it does not really matter whether or not Barack Hussein is born in the USA because he is NOT a natural born citizen SIMPLY BECAUSE his father has never ever been an American citizen. END OF THE STORY FOR BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA!!!!!

    Again, double-check what I have said above in the very good clarification on "YouTube – Exactly What IS a Natural Born Citizen?" at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QEnaAZrYqQI&eurl=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.orlytaitzesq.com%2Fnatural_born_citizen.htm&feature=player_embedded

    Barack Obama, your days are numbered despite the judicial system covering you up so often until now!!

  11. Mick says:

    How do you, as someone studying to be an attorney, not understand the core Constitutional Legal issue? Both parents must be citizens of the US of a person born in the US for that person to be a Natural Born Citizen. If you are thinking that Wong Kim Ark changed that, think again. Wong Ark was a narrowly held case about children RESIDENT ALIENS Domicled in the US, giving them CITIZENSHIP not Natural Born Citizenship. Natural Born Citizenship is self evident since there would be no competing claims of citizenship between foreign powers. Duh! It makes me wonder what kind of lawyers that this country puts out.

    The National Review writer has no trouble admitting that on the one hand, Obama freely and frequently lies, but then he makes an assumption that Obama is the only person who is lying.

    If Obama is lying then other people are covering up for him.

    How anyone can take a government employee's "I saw it so there" as unquestionable proof on behalf of another government employee is a bit of a joke, but…

    that which is laughable today could become tomorrow's tragedy. Two Russian subs are once again patrolling the East coast. Recently, Obama was in Russia, hope he didn't lie to them, too.

    There is no where in US code or the Constitution that states this, do conservative just make things up now. If you could point to a statute or a law, anything that would give you credibility. Just saying it doesnt make it so. Unreal, you cant even provide proof of your idiotic statement. How very sad for conservatism.

    —More videos on youtube.com about this wonderful woman, Orly Taitz, at http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=Orly+Taitz&search_type=&aq=f
    I am proud to say that I am a big fan of Orly Taitz.

    We conspicuously DID ask officially John McCain to prove that he was a natural born citizen and Barack Hussein participated in this quest for proofs. Therefore, Barack Hussein knows very well the two conditions that I have stated again above to be a natural born citizen because they were stated during this quest for proofs against John McCain!
    HOWEVER, BARACK HUSSEIN WAS NOT ASKED ANYTHING ABOUT GIVING PROOFS THAT HE IS A NATURAL BORN CITIZEN DESPITE THE FACT THAT HIS FATHER WAS NOT AN AMERICAN CITIZEN, THAT HE WAS AN INDONESIAN CITIZEN FOR YEARS, AND MORE!!
    Why that?
    Orly Taitz, in one of videos, explains one reason linked to John McCain's already not very clear situation.
    Another reason that she did not mention is because any journalist or any person who raises the question of whether Barack Hussein is or is not a natural born citizen is branded as being a racist!!
    Same when we arrest a black person (Gates's debacle recently!!) despite the fact that he was acting out of control according to a black officer that was with the white policeman who made the arrest and that it was the only reason for Gates's arrest!

    How come we have reached the point where we cannot act against a black who committed something wrong without being branded as being a racist?!! And why does it relate directly to the quest to prove that Barack Hussein is not a natural born citizen?!!
    In short, affirmative action measures especially for blacks and completely false accusation that white Americans would be responsible for a practice, slavery, that was created by black Africans against other black Africans IN AFRICA long before white businessmen decided to get a profit out of it and import the practice in America!!! The pyramids of Egypt and the slaves who designed them and built them, was it in America?!!!!

    Concerning a separate issue, the birth of Obama in Hawaii.
    I am pretty convinced that Obama has even an "authenticated", "valid" full birth certificate showing that he was born in Hawaii even if it is not the case!! How can this be? Hawaii officials are known to be very lax on recording this type of facts (you can even get a normal Hawaii birth certificate even if you were born abroad)!! Therefore, many facts stated on this full birth certificate are possibly false facts!!
    It is known already that hundreds of people have already checked ALL the Hawaii hospitals to check if Obama was born in one of them and they did not find any of these hospitals with a record showing that Obama was born in one of these hospitals in Hawaii!!!

    Obama, you can have all the Supreme Court hiding that you are not a natural born citizen, sooner or later, this issue will explode in your face BIG TIME!!

    Jeff,
    I thought you were training to be a lawyer. You mean to tell me that you are unable to confirm what a Natural Born Citizen is? Very Lazy if you ask me. It is a Citizen born with no competing allegiances or citizenships, Born in the US to 2 Citizen parents. Are you that non committal about the Comstitution? Isn't Law about the Constitution or is that just Old Fashioned thinking? What kind of Lawyer will you be? Probably the USUAL kind.
