In order to be eligible to hold the Office of the President of the United States of America, one must be at least 35 years-of-age, have resided in the USA for at least 14 years, and be a natural-born citizen.
Is Barack Obama a natural-born citizen? Is Obama qualified to be President according to the rules set forth by our Constitution?
This seems like a very simple question, but unfortunately, almost no one knows the answer for sure. That is, no one knows except for Barack Obama. And he’s not talking. He’s actually hiding the evidence.
What Are the Facts?
Barack Obama claims to have been born in Honolulu, Hawaii on August 4, 1961. However, only Obama’s long-form Birth Certificate can verify the exact hospital of his birth and the residing physician during his birth. This record has been sealed.
Why Are We Being Lied To?
Barack Obama refuses to release his full and complete Birth Certificate. In fact, the current Democrat governor of Hawaii has ordered Obama's full Birth Certificate permanently sealed.
Are we, the American people, allowed to know what is behind this secrecy?
And why is the mainstream media ignoring and misrepresenting this important story?
Is a Constitutional Crisis Looming?
According to the U.S. Constitution, the President must be a natural-born citizen. Because Barack Obama was born to a mother (with U.S. citizenship) and a father (with Kenyan citizenship) who both traveled frequently, some important questions remain unanswered.
These questions could easily be put to rest if Obama would only release his full Birth Certificate for review. Instead, Barack Obama has released a scan of his “Certificate of Live Birth” on his campaign website fightthesmears.com.
The partial birth record released by Obama does not disclose the hospital where he was born, nor does it list the name and signature of the attending physician. And most importantly, Certificates of Live Birth can be issued to foreign-born children.
The Media Refuses to Report the Facts
Regardless of these facts, the media is falsely reporting that this partial birth record is a complete “Birth Certificate” and they are claiming that all Obama “citizenship rumors” have been fully debunked. These claims are false.
Furthermore, other media outlets are trying to confuse the issue by claiming that Barack Obama’s “U.S. citizenship status” is being questioned. In reality, Obama’s “natural-born U.S. citizenship status” is the real issue being questioned.
Obama Refuses to Release His Long-Form Birth Certificate
Obama’s long-form Hawaii Birth Certificate may be able to prove his natural-born citizenship status. Obama, who is a Constitutional scholar, refuses to release this document even though he faces multiple lawsuits around the country demanding that he does so.
Obama Posts a Scan of His "Certificate of Live Birth"
On his website, fightthesmears.com, Obama has posted an image of a Hawaiian Certificate of Live Birth. This is not the same thing as a Birth Certificate.
Is a Certificate of Live Birth proof of natural-born citizenship? Absolutely NOT!
According to Hawaiian law, Certificates of Live Birth may be “prepared and filed with the Department of Health, as provided by law, for 1) a person born in Hawaii who already has a birth certificate filed with the Department of Health or 2) a person born in a foreign country.”
In addition, while some sources have confirmed the validity of this document, others question whether or not this document has been altered. Regardless, the Certificate of Live Birth does not prove that Obama was born in Hawaii. Children born outside of the country can be issued Certificates of Live Birth. In fact, Obama’s half sister was born in Indonesia and also has a Hawaiian Certificate of Live Birth.
Obama Refuses to Release His School Transcripts
Barack Obama will not release his transcripts from his stay at Columbia, Occidental, or Harvard universities. He is not required to do so, but investigators are speculating that he received financial aid as a foreign student while attending school. Mr. Obama can easily put these theories to rest by releasing these records.
Democrat Governor Orders Birth Certificate Permanently Sealed
On October 27th, 2008, Hawaii Democrat Governor Linda Lingle effectively barred anyone but Obama himself from obtaining a copy of his long-form Birth Certificate. Lingle cited privacy laws meant to deter identity theft as her reason for taking this action. Obama has not requested that his Birth Certificate be unsealed or released.
Democrat Judge Kills Obama Citizenship Lawsuit in PA
Phillip Berg is a Pennsylvania attorney and Hillary Clinton supporter who has filed a federal lawsuit alleging that Obama is ineligible to serve in the White House because Obama has failed to prove his citizenship status.
A Democrat-appointed federal judge dismissed Berg's suit, saying Berg had “no standing to sue” because Berg does not stand to be “injured” by Obama’s citizenship status.
So to be clear, the case was not thrown out because Mr. Obama proved his citizenship status. He has not. Berg intends to appeal the ruling all the way to the Supreme Court if necessary.
Was Obama Born in Kenya?
Unknown. It is a fact that Barack’s mother was in Kenya while late in her pregnancy. Whether or not she was able to fly back to Hawaii to give birth to Barack is not known for certain. According to some sources, Obama's paternal grandmother has said she was present in the delivery room at Barack’s birth -- at The Coast Provincial General Hospital in Mombasa, Kenya. If Obama has a long-form Hawaiian Birth Certificate, he could easily prove this claim to be true or false. For whatever reason, he refuses to do so.
Is Obama a Citizen of Indonesia?
Unknown. Even if Obama was born in Hawaii, it is possible that his stepfather later changed his citizenship to Indonesian. Barack was enrolled in the Indonesian public school system under the name “Barry Soetoro” (having taken his stepfather's last name). During this period of young Barack's life, only Indonesian citizens were allowed to enroll in public school.
If Barack’s (or Barry’s) citizenship was switched to Indonesian via adoption by his stepfather, he would then have to reapply for naturalized citizen status upon reentry to the United States. If this is the case, Obama is not eligible to be President of the United States of America. And if Barack Obama was an Indonesian citizen and did not reapply for naturalized status upon his return, Obama would currently be an illegal alien and inelgible to hold any seat in the federal government.
Can Naturalized U.S. Citizens Hold the Office of President?
No. Eligible candidates must be natural-born U.S. citizens. And as evidence suggests, Barack Obama may not be a legal natural-born U.S. citizen.
Moreover, according to the immigration law in effect at the time of Barack's birth, eligibility for the office of President requires natural-born citizen status when the candidate was not born to two parents with U.S. citizenship.
(Note that Mr. Obama’s father was not a U.S. Citizen at the time of Barack’s birth.)
The federal law stated that: “…if only one parent is a U.S. Citizen at the time of one’s birth, that parent must have resided in the United States for minimum ten years, five of which must be after the age of 16.”
Obama’s mother was 18 years-old when Barack was born. This means that it may be impossible for her to meet this requirement. "Five" years "after the age of 16" would mean that she would have to be 21 at the time of Barack's birth in order to automatically qualify her son for U.S. citizenship.
The Constitution states that “Naturalized citizens are ineligible to hold the office of President.” Therefore, Obama's nomination for President may be a violation of U.S. election law.
Will this Controversy Simply Go Away?
Not likely. The lawsuits against Obama will multiply and eventually one of the cases will be elevated all the way to the Supreme Court, if necessary. Eventually, the country will learn the truth. And if Obama cannot prove his natural-born citizenship status, it will cause a Constitutional crisis and he may be forced to leave office.
Write your representatives in Washington and demand that Mr. Obama prove his citizenship status
