Natural Born Citizen – A Place to Ask Questions and Get the Right Answers

August 31, 2010

Is Obama Telling Us the Truth About His Place of Birth and Religion?

For those looking for an answer to this question, you may want to listen to the interview by NBC Nightly News anchor, Brian Williams, of Obama done on 8-29-10. The answers that Obama gives are quite revealing in this regard.

First, when Williams informed him that one-fifth of Americans do not believe that he is American-born and also believe that he is not a Christian but rather a Muslim, he answered “American born and Muslim are not the same thing?” And just what does Obama mean by that statement? He says, “the facts are the facts.” But he surely does not tell us what those facts are.

Second, regarding the question of his birth place and religion, Obama says that he went through that during the campaign for Senator and President. Evidently, Obama feels that he has no obligation to tell the American people the truth about those issues at this time. Rather than address the issues with solid facts, he dismisses them as mere campaign smears which he has already overcome by winning the election.

Third, why would Obama believe that in order to address the question of where he was born he has to “spend all of [his] time with [his] birth certificate plastered on [his] forehead?” He tells us that to address the questions of concerned Americans regarding his birth certificate he would have to “spend all [his] time” on the birth certificate issue and that if he did he would not get much done. But how much time would it take for him to simply release his 1961 contemporaneous birth certificate to the public? He could start by posting it on the internet just like he posted in 2008 his questionable 2007 Certification of Live Birth (COLB). I can estimate the time for him to do that being 5 to 10 minutes.

Fourth, Obama says that he trusts in the “American people’s capacity” to do the right thing and that he will “always put [his] money on the American people.” If he has so much trust in them and would always “put his money on them,” then why will he not release his birth certificate and his education, travel, and work documents for the American people to see?

We cannot put much trust in anything that Obama says. It is quite clear from Obama’s answers that he is not telling the American people the truth about where he was born or about his religion. Rather, what we must do is ask him the proper questions and demand from him his evidence which proves that what he says in response to those questions is true.

And a special note to Brian Williams, it’s a lot more than one-fifth of the American people asking questions. Up to 60% in this CNN poll have doubts about Obama’s origins.

The U.S. State Department Fails to Address the Meaning of a Natural Born Citizen and to Conclusively Show that Obama Was Born in Hawaii

Recently, WND reported the “State Department is maintaining a “counter-misinformation” page on an America.gov blog that attempts to “debunk a conspiracy theory” that President Obama was not born in the United States.” WND states that the State Department is treating the topic as though it were equivalent to those involving space aliens visiting Earth in flying saucers. The WND article is entitled, “State Dept. confirms Obama dual citizen- “Counter-misinformation” website aims to debunk birth controversy” and can be accessed at: http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.printable&pageId=195441

Here is the State Department article as published on the America.gov blog:

“The Obama Birth Controversy— By Todd Leventhal, 21 August 2009

During the past year, a number of conspiracy theorists have suggested that President Obama was not born in the United States. If this were true — which it is not — he would not be eligible to be the U.S. president, who must be a natural-born American.

On July 27, 2009, Hawaii State Health Director Dr. Chiyome Fukino confirmed that Obama was born in the U.S. state of Hawaii, stating:

‘I … have seen the original vital records maintained on file by the Hawaii State Department of Health verifying Barack Hussein Obama was born in Hawaii and is a natural-born American citizen. I have nothing further to add to this statement or my original statement issued in October 2008 over eight months ago ….’

In 2008, FactCheck.org examined a copy of Obama’s birth certificate held by the Obama campaign, verifying that it was a real, official document.

Nine days after Obama was born in Honolulu, Hawaii on August 4, 1961, the Honolulu Advertiser included among its birth notices, “Mr. and Mrs. Barack H. Obama of 6085 Kalanianaole Highway, son, Aug. 4,” which it reprinted in its Aug. 17, 2009 issue. The Honolulu Star-Bulletin printed the identical birth notice one day later, on August 14, 1961. Its former managing editor Dave Shapiro says, ‘Those were listings that came over from the state Department of Health. They would send the same thing to both papers.’

Interestingly, FactCheck.org determined that Obama was originally both a U.S. citizen and a citizen of the United Kingdom and Colonies from 1961 to 1963 (because his father was from Kenya, which gained its independence from the British Empire in 1963), then both a U.S. and Kenyan citizen from 1963 to 1982, and solely a U.S. citizen after that.’” See:
http://blogs.america.gov/rumors/2009/08/21/the-obama-birth-controversy/.

Who is America.gov.? Its blog section, “About Us,” informs us of the following: “State Department’s Bureau of International Information Programs (IIP) engages international audiences on issues of foreign policy, society and values to help create an environment receptive to U.S. national interests. IIP communicates with foreign opinion makers and other publics through a wide range of print and electronic outreach materials published in English, Arabic, Chinese, French, Persian, Russian, and Spanish. IIP also provides information outreach support to U.S. embassies and consulates in more than 140 countries worldwide.”

What is interesting is that there were only three comments allowed to be posted to this Leventhal article that appear at the blog. Commenting was then disabled. This is unbelievable given the huge public outcry over the unresolved question of whether putative President Obama is constitutionally eligible to be President. The answer to this anomaly is probably found at the blog itself which states: “This blog has been archived. This content will remain available but will not be updated and commenting is disabled.” How convenient for the State Department to publish such drivel and then prevent the interested public from commenting on it.

This new State Department “myth” and “conspiracy” article, other than conceding that Obama was at least born with divided allegiance and loyalty to both the United States (which assumes that he was born in Hawaii) and Great Britain which at age two transferred to allegiance and loyalty to Kenya, adds absolutely nothing to the already existing information and arguments on the question of whether putative President Obama is an Article II “natural born Citizen.” The article is incorrect in stating that Obama’s Kenyan citizenship expired in 1982, for it actually expired in 1984, if he did not confirm it. It simply repeats the worn-out arguments supporting Obama’s presidential eligibility (FactCheck.org, the two newspaper birth announcements, and what Hawaiian officials in carefully parsed statements said in 2008 and 2009) and stamps them with the imprimatur of officialdom (the U.S. State Department no less). One has to wonder why after over two years of debate on the question of where Obama was born, the only evidence that the State Department has of Obama being born in Hawaii is what Mr. Leventhal has published in this article. Why does the State Department not tell us that it has officially examined Obama’s 1961 contemporaneous birth certificate and the hospital records relating to that birth (that should be available if Obama was born in the Kapi’aloni Hospital as he claims) and has confirmed with that hospital that he was in fact born there? The article also misses and probably intentionally avoids so much of the pertinent information and points on the Founders’ and Framers’ natural law and law of nations definition of an Article II “natural born Citizen” (see Obama – Maybe a Citizen of the United States but Not a “natural born Citizen” of the United States at: http://puzo1.blogspot.com/2010/03/obama-maybe-citizen-of-united-states.html ) and on the question of whether Obama has conclusively proven that he was born in Hawaii (see A Catalog of Evidence – Concerned Americans Have Good Reason to Doubt that Putative President Obama Was Born in Hawaii at: http://puzo1.blogspot.com/2010/05/catalog-of-evidence-concerned-americans.html ), both questions having absolutely nothing to do with conspiracy theories or whether the moon landing occurred on a Hollywood stage. The piece is nothing more than a manipulation of selective information to reach a desired result, a technique that various bodies have used in addressing the question of whether Obama is eligible to be President. This is typical official propaganda.

I am now working on a petition for a Writ of Certiorari to the U.S. Supreme Court for the Kerchner et al. v. Obama/Congress et al case. The Kerchner plaintiffs and I will appreciate the support of all those who want the question of Obama’s eligibility brought to justice and decided by the rule of law rather than by a biased voting majority, the two major political parties whose only purpose appears to be to gain and maintain power, and all their friends and our enemies who stand to gain in one way or another by the status quo and/or by the radical changes Obama has planned for our Constitutional Republic. We have to convince the Supreme Court that it should accept the Kerchner case for review because it presents important issues which the Supreme Court should decide and that the Kerchner plaintiffs do have standing to bring their claims against Obama and Congress.

An Open Letter to John McCain-Will you do the right thing at this crucial time? We will see. We the People, history and God will be your final Judge


An Open Letter To: Senator John McCain

From: CDR Charles Kerchner (Ret)

Senator McCain, your Democratic/Progressive/Socialist opponents questioned your “natural born Citizenship” status in the 2008 election. The question I ask is, why didn’t you question Obama’s “natural born Citizen” status? That is the obvious response in a political battle. Especially with all the talk about Obama’s mysterious early life narrative back then and that continues to this day … but now as a roar as his phony life story is revealed more and more every day. Or John, did you make a deal with the devil in the Senate cloak room to get the weaselly worded SR 511 passed for you by Senator Leahy (and backed by Obama himself on your behalf) in return for you keeping quiet about Obama during the campaign and not asking anything about Obama’s “natural born Citizenship” flaws, and all his hidden and sealed early life records. You and your control of the RNC allowed Obama a total pass on that. Why? The deal you made with the Democratic/Progressive Caucus leadership and the DNC Party stinks to high heaven. Is this an example of your reaching across the aisle to work with the Democrats/Progressives!?

You sold out for personal protection and hiding of your own natural born citizenship questions and flaws. You made a deal to protect Obama. You would not even mention Obama’s middle name or his questionable background in the campaign. You chewed out anyone who did. You sold out to the DEMs and Progressive Caucus to get SR 511 passed for you to make your natural born Citizenship questions by the DEM operatives “problems” go away. Instead of both of you candidates taking both your stories openly to the American people in the various debates and laying it all out to them and explaining it to them in the primary debates, you both chose to hide it and silence it and try to bury it. If you both were so cock-sure of your “natural born Citizenship” status, why didn’t both of your debate this issue before We the People in the primaries!?

John, you sold out the country and the U.S. Constitution, specifically Article II, Section 1, Clause 5 (the Presidential eligibility clause) and have allowed a true “domestic enemy” to sit in the Oval Office as a result.

No person born of a foreign national, non-Citizen, non-immigrant, non-permanent resident to the USA, such as Obama was, can ever be considered to be a “natural born Citizen” of the USA. Read the preeminent legal treatise of the founding era by Emer de Vattel, “The Law of Nations or Principles of Natural Law”, Vol.1, Chapter 19, Section 212. The founders and framers did. They used that legal book to help write the founding documents. A “natural born Citizen” is one born in the country to two Citizen parents! Such a person is naturally, per natural law, a “natural born Citizen” of the country and no man-made law, amendment, court decision, spin machine in the media, or Senate resolution is required to explain it or clarify that person’s natural law Citizenship status. But you see John, you made a Faustian pact with the devil. And for the first time in history the two major political parties both jointly put up Presidential candidates who did not meet that natural law definition. The fix was in for 2008 to usurper and ignore the Constitution as to whom is eligible to serve in that singularly most powerful office in our nation. And John, you helped put the fix in for your own personal political power and goals. You helped make the deal! And you continue to help with the cover up!

Read this essay of mine for more on the Fix Was In for the 2008 Presidential Election:
http://puzo1.blogspot.com/2010/01/i-believe-fix-was-in-for-2008-election.html

John, you betrayed your Oath. You abandoned the wisdom of our forefathers and the founders of this nation for your own personal political gain and quest for power. You dishonored your prior honorable service to this nation. You are no longer a hero in this country to my eyes and in the eyes of many who know this truth about what you did in 2008. Will you try to redeem yourself? Will you truly finally at this stage in your life put Country First? Will you stand up now for the Constitution and your Oath and help correct the wrong you helped perpetrate in 2008, even at great personal pain to yourself and your legacy? Or will you let a fellow commissioned officer, LTC Lakin, who served his country bravely and with honor in Afghanistan, be court martialed and be destroyed by the corrupt politicos in Washington DC and their followers in the Pentagon leadership … for LTC Lakin standing up for his oath … while you remain silent as to what you know about the 2008 election and Obama? Will you continue to allow Obama to corrupt every institution in the nation to protect his phony life of fraud as a con-man and a grifter as to who he really is. We will see John. We the People, history and God will be your final Judge.
