or isn't he?

Independent News is
reporting that there have been rumbles of unrest around the world
regarding Obama’s birth and/or citizenship since the day he stated he would run for
the presidency. Now, after more than a year, the rumbles have
turned into a full on eruption.
The Barack Obama nationality scandal is refusing to burn itself out
and seems to be gathering even more speed with Congressman Nathan Deal
questioning the eligibility of Obama to hold the
presidency. This is the first time in history that a serving
president has been questioned about eligibility by a member of congress.
Over the last week the Internet has been reporting this story
with the blogosphere almost going into meltdown over the latest
developments yet no mainstream media seem interested in the story that
just won’t go away for Obama.
Congressman Deal asked Obama to
prove that he is legally entitled to hold the presidency electronically
on December 1st 2009. This communication was confirmed received by
Obama’s staff but has yet to be responded to.
Even though Obama
has already produced his short-form birth
certificate in order to stop these questions, he has spent a large
amount of taxpayers money (estimated to be more than two million
dollars) ensuring that the long-form certificate is kept from the public
-- an action that has raised more than a few eyebrows along the way.
Throughout the campaign trail and longer, Obama made promises of the
most transparent administration than any other so why the need to hide a
simple birth certificate? Many claim that the whole situation is a
complete waste of time and distracting but supporters of the question
refuse to stop asking more and more questions.
It seems that the
original question seems to have caused a stir not just in America but
worldwide with thousands of people doing independent research in an
attempt to get the facts out. The problem with independent
research is that it is hard to verify where the alleged facts came from
and when they are traced back its not unusual to find that it stemmed
from opinion -- .
With several birth certificates doing the rounds, many proven as
hoaxes, the "official" birth certificate --
-- in the Obama nationality scandal seems to prove that Obama was in
fact a British Subject at birth. On the website dedicated to
protecting Obama from smears, Fight The Smears, there is an electronic
copy of the birth certificate showing that Obama was born a British
Obama’s nationality scandal doesn’t seem to be going anywhere at
the moment and even the secret service seem to be taking an interest in
anyone questioning Obama’s nationality with visits being made for
Reported last week at the very liberal Mother Jones, more and more
people who have raised the issue are being visited by the secret service and
being left feeling very intimidated.
No matter what side of the
fence you sit on this scandal seems set to stay around for a long time
|A Matter Of Constitutional Integrity
says it is plainly evident even
prominent officials in Kenya believe Barack Obama is Kenyan-born, it
becomes a matter of historical accuracy and constitutional integrity
that his life story be fully documented.
Long before Obama was
elected and ever since, the people of Kenya have spoken of him as one of
their own. Even first lady Michelle Obama
referred to her
husband's "home country" as Kenya during the campaign, and now we have
James Orengo, a member of the Kenyan Parliament
Obama as "born here in Kenya" on page 31.
It is still highly
unfashionable here in the states to raise any questions about Obama's
nativity story or his foreign travels or how he recovered his
citizenship after living in Indonesia. Americans are simply
supposed to accept on faith that Obama is a "natural born" citizen
without the kind of appropriate documentation that would be required for
a passport or even to obtain a driver's license in most states.
Farah says: I don't accept those ground rules -- I don't accept
those impositions -- I don't accept that politicians should be given the
benefit of the doubt -- I don't believe the Constitution should be
Now, I don't know where Obama was born. But I
think I speak for millions of Americans when I say it's time to find
out. It's time to see the long-form, original birth certificate
signed by an eyewitness to that birth. It's time to see his travel
records, his passport record, his medical records, his school records,
his college records.
It's a matter of honor -- It's a matter of
truth -- It's a matter of constitutional eligibility -- And it's a
matter of historical accuracy and clarity for the American people and
for the whole world.
Barack Obama and his supporters concern
themselves so frequently with the beliefs and convictions of foreign
nations and peoples.
Since it is now clear that well-educated
foreign officials are shaping their own country's destiny under the
belief -- right or wrong -- that Obama was born in Kenya, not the United
States, don't we have a special obligation to document the true story?
Kenyan officials are debating the ratification of a new
constitution. They are making decisions that will affect their
country for decades to come based, in part, on the supposition that the
U.S. allows the foreign-born to become president of the United States.
percentage of American citizens, according to every poll conducted,
likewise have grave doubts about Obama's claim to be Hawaiian-born and
constitutionally eligible to serve as president.
Obama refuses to address these controversies with facts, evidence,
|Enough's Enough: Obama Has Conceded
|For more than two years now, I have given
Barack Obama the benefit of the doubt. That may be hard to fathom
for some because of my admittedly relentless and tireless pursuit of the
truth about his origins and his constitutional eligibility for office.
After all, I am the guy who has posted this question on
billboards across America: "Where's the birth certificate?"
I really have given Obama the benefit of the doubt until now. I have
asked the questions and directed the investigative reporting that has
changed America's political landscape on the eligibility question.
WND conducted the first national poll on this subject 15 months ago.
Back then, we were shocked that 50 percent of Americans knew there was a
controversy about his birth certificate and his eligibility -- because
WND is the only news organization in the country that pursued the story.
Today, the latest polls show 58 percent of Americans don't believe
Obama's story and suspect he is not eligible to serve.
That is a
big shift in public opinion in a short period of time.
just agree that Obama's indifference to calls from the public for
transparency and honesty strongly suggests he has something to hide.
Since he is a public servant sworn to uphold the Constitution, it is
long past time for him to come clean, lay his cards on the table and
prove his eligibility. We've given him that opportunity, and he
has insulted those of us who now represent an overwhelming majority by
political standards. Instead, he dishonestly plays the victim
role, pretending he has done everything he can reasonably do to settle
So, right here and now, I declare the president
ineligible by default. Maybe he can prove I'm wrong. Maybe
he can't. But the people cannot be expected to prove a negative.
I feel confident we'll soon learn the truth.
What percentage of the public would have to
express doubts about Obama's eligibility before it became a real
story to the news media?
What percentage of the public would
have to express doubts about Obama's eligibility before he would
condescend to providing the most basic evidence required for
What percentage of the public would have to
express doubts about Obama's eligibility before controlling legal
authorities at the state and federal level take appropriate actions
to hold him accountable and to ensure America never faces another
problem like this in the future?
Personally, I think we're very close to reaching
the critical mass that will bring this issue to a head.
