Obama’s Eligibility Challenged Again – November 18, 2008
Reported by NBC News, Augusta, Georgia, Nov. 18, 2008
“SACRAMENTO, Calif.- A former opponent of Barack Obama’s has come back to haunt him over questions regarding Obama’s citizenship.
According to a press release from the American Independent Party, former presidential candidate Alan Keyes and other members of the party have filed suit in California Superior Court in Sacramento to stop the state from giving its electoral votes to President-elect Barack Obama until documentary evidence is provided to prove Obama is indeed a natural born citizen of the United States.”
This isn’t the first suit over Obama’s birth certificate and citizenship. Phillip Berg filed suit in Pennsylvania and the court sided with Mr. Berg. Not quite thirty days later, Oct. 24, 2008, the same court reversed itself and dismissed the lawsuit for lack of standing. Mr. Berg’s subsequent examination of the record showed no introduction of evidence, testimony or affidavits from either Obama or the DNC, to explain the court’s reversal of it’s own ruling. Mr. Berg appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court, but the court refused to take the case. (You should read about this case at http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/1218811/berg_v_obama_search_for_obam…. It’s puzzling to say the least.)
Another case, brought in Honolulu, Hawaii by Andy Martin was set for a hearing today, Nov. 18, 2008, seeking a circuit judge to direct state officials to release Obama’s original, typewritten 1962 (1961?) birth certificate. This is the first one to be heard in open court. Mr. Martin is a graduate of the U. of Illinois College of Law (J.D.) and a former adjunct professor at the City U. of New York. http://contrariancommentary.wordpress.com/2008/11/
The question has always been, “Why doesn’t Obama simply produce the original birth certificate and put all of this suspicion to rest?” As others have said, it takes a few minutes and about $10 to request one. Yet, Obama has paid lawyers and spent a ton of money fighting these lawsuits rather than spend ten dollars to produce the original. Why?
It seems like common sense to satisfy American citizens/voters, since the Constitution requires a president to be a natural born citizen of the U.S. Instead, the Obama camp posted a Certificate of Live Birth, which is different from a Certification of Birth. There are those who contend that what was posted was a proven computer-generated “Photoshopped” forgery originally posted by a left-wing web blog, The Daily Kos, and one of its regular commentors who discussed the ease of faking one to bring an end to the controversy. They point to a small black dot that appears near the top of the form on the left side, which also appears on the known forgery on Daily Kos and Photobucket. This dot would not have been on a genuine document from the State of Hawaii. Both forms, Obama’s and the forgery, clearly show at the bottom left corner, “Rev. 11/01”. There is also evidence that the border design was Photoshopped and the font used to type the information did not exist in 1961 and is unique to computers, not found on typewriters. If this happens to be a COLB issued June, 2007, as a bleed-through might suggest, it shouldn’t have exactly the same birth time, 7:24 p.m., as the known forgery and a COLB is available to persons born in a foreign country under certain stipulations.
A Constitutional Crisis is looming if Obama proves not to be a natural born citizen. As a nation of law, the fight to disqualify Obama will begin in earnest as well as the fight from the other side to prevent it. All of this could have been avoided if Obama had simply produced the required document and satisfied those who are worried.
