What's all the Fuss about?
Article 2, Section 1, of the Constitution of the United States, states:
"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..."
When reports surfaced that President-elect Obama's paternal grandmother was claiming that she was present at Obama's birth in Mombasa, in what is now Kenya, people started asking questions.
Then, a document known as a "Certification of Live Birth" made its way onto Obama's website.
There was just one problem: the Hawaii "Certification of Live Birth" is TOTALLY INADEQUATE for the purpose of proving that an individual was actually born in the State of Hawaii...
The "Certification of Live Birth" is nothing more than a computer generated printout. It is a totally different document than the "CERTIFICATE [not Certification] of Live Birth." And it is NOT A VALID BIRTH CERTIFICATE!
And why is that important? Two reasons...
First, Hawaii allows a child to be furnished a "Certification of Live Birth" even if the child was NOT born in Hawaii. Specifically, the Statute reads:
"[§338-17.8] Certificates for children born out of State. (a) Upon application of an adult or the legal parents of a minor child, the director of health shall issue a birth certificate for such adult or minor, provided that proof has been submitted to the director of health that the legal parents of such individual while living without the Territory or State of Hawaii had declared the Territory or State of Hawaii as their legal residence for at least one year immediately preceding the birth or adoption of such child."
Secondly, Hawaii government agencies DO NOT necessarily accept the "Certification of Live Birth" as proof that an individual was born in the state of Hawaii.
For example, the Hawaii Department of Home Lands states the following on its website:
"In order to process your application, DHHL utilizes information that is found only on the original Certificate of Live Birth, which is either black or green. This is a more complete record of your birth than the Certification of Live Birth (a computer-generated printout). Submitting the original Certificate of Live Birth will save you time and money since the computer-generated Certification requires additional verification by DHHL."
If the State of Hawaii DOES NOT accept a computer printout, as proof that an individual was actually born in Hawaii, WHY SHOULD WE!
What's the Big Secret?
That's a good question. Obama could certainly end this entire controversy – and, MORE IMPORTANTLY, SHOW THE AMERICAN PEOPLE THAT HE ACTUALLY RESPECTS THE CONSTITUTION - by simply producing his valid birth certificate.
His refusal only adds fuel to the fire and begs the question: What exactly IS contained in the "Certificate of Live Birth" which is presently under lock and key?
Officials in Hawaii aren't exactly shedding any light on the matter.
Dr Chiyome Fukino with Hawaii's Department of Health says that she has seen Obama's original vaulted birth certificate. Okay... We know that it exists... BUT WHAT DOES IT TELL US?
Fukino did not say! Specifically Fukino stated:
"Therefore, I as Director of Health for the State of Hawaii, along with the Registrar of Vital Statistics who has statutory authority to oversee and maintain these type of vital records, have personally seen and verified that the Hawaii State Department of Health has Sen. Obama’s original birth certificate on record in accordance with state policies and procedures."
Not only do we NOT know what is contained on the vaulted birth certificate...
... there are several other circumstances and issues that beg the question: Is Obama a "natural born Citizen" as REQUIRED - NOT SUGGESTED - by the Constitution?
What about the college records that Obama refuses to release. Why? Could those records indicate that he received financial aid as a foreign student?
Recently, Dr. Jerome Corsi traveled to Kenya to see if he could find a birth certificate for President-elect Obama, but he was detained by Kenyan officials. Again... Why?
Janet Porter, writing for WorldNetDaily.com, raises even more pressing questions:
"In Hawaii, a Certification of Live Birth is issued within a year of a child's birth to those who register a birth abroad or one that takes place outside a hospital,' she said."
"'There's the matter that Obama traveled to Indonesia, Pakistan, Southern India and Kenya in 1981. He said he went to Indonesia to see his mother. This seemed plausible, except for the fact that his mother returned to Hawaii in August of 1980 to file for a divorce from her second husband, Lolo Soetoro. Unless she went back to pal around with the man she divorced, she wasn't there at the time of Obama's visit," Porter wrote.
"'There's another problem. No record of Obama holding an American passport prior to the one he received once becoming a U.S. senator has been found. If he traveled to Pakistan with an American passport, he wouldn't have been allowed in – since Pakistan was in turmoil in 1981 and under martial law. It was also on the State Department's travel ban list for U.S. citizens,' she wrote.
"'If he couldn't get into Pakistan with a U.S. passport, perhaps he went there with an Indonesian passport. But the only way you can get one of those is if you are an Indonesian citizen.'"
And again, one cannot shake President-elect Obama's unwillingness to release an authentic copy of his vaulted birth certificate, nor can it be ignored that President-elect Obama has hired teams of attorneys (not individual attorneys, but teams of attorneys) to thwart attempts by third parties to compel him to produce a birth certificate.
The question as to whether President-elect Obama is a "natural born Citizen" is not just significant... it's downright compelling.
And it's a question that MUST be answered!
Crossing the Rubicon...
Simply stated, if the Electoral College actually allowed an unqualified person to be elected President of the United States, or allowed a person to be elected without verifying that that he or she is qualified, our entire form of government could be compromised!
I don't make that statement lightly. It's not an exaggeration.
Liberty and freedom are not the rule in this world.
In the United States, we take freedom for granted. It's a given. To us it's like breathing or walking.
And that's no accident.
Our Founding Fathers established a government under the basic premise that men "are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights." ... rights that could not be taken away because they come from a Power greater than any one of us.
They believed the primary purpose of government was to secure and safeguard those rights and they enumerated those rights in the Constitution and in the Bill of Rights.
Stated in greater detail...
"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it...." When the most powerful among us are no longer bound by those founding documents - and, more importantly, when we refuse to hold them accountable - there can be no freedom... no liberty... only unrest... violence... oppression... tyranny... perhaps not tomorrow, but very soon!
Our Founding Fathers knew that all too well.
The action that you take now may very well determine the future that you leave to your children and grandchildren.
We have indeed crossed the Rubicon.
If we do nothing... we may well be signing the death warrant for our nation.
The action that you take or don't take right now will determine our future. What will you do?
U.S. Justice Foundation is Committed to the Fight
If President-elect Obama is unwilling or unable to prove that he is constitutionally qualified to hold the office of President of the United States then every action he takes as President is open to legal challenge.
Our first priority is to compel him to prove he is eligible before he is inaugurated, but we must prepare now to challenge his actions on all fronts.
That means, when President Obama attempts to impose the so-called Fairness Doctrine, we'll be there to challenge it in court. When he signs a bill to force homosexual marriage on every state, we'll be there to challenge it. With your help, we will fight every action this usurper president takes.
Far too many of our so-called "conservative" leaders are already showing the American people that they will choose political gain over the Constitution. Someone must be willing to fight and be ready to fight. Someone needs to take the lead.
