Barack Obama: Evidence Of Birth About To Be Released

 
It’s fueled an underground movement against American President
Barack Obama with critics claiming he was born in Africa, therefore not
entitled to be in Office.    Now newly elected Democrat, Government Neil
Abercrombie is vowing to release the President’s birth certificate.
 
As recently as July this year The Globe ran as it’s headline story a
“Why His Presidency Is Illegal. Barack Obama Born In Africa”
 
Under the American constitution only a person born in America is
entitled to hold the position of either President or Vice President of
the United States.  
 
If Obama was born in Africa this would effectively make his
Presidency illegal.  It food for the conspiracy theorists who seem
determined to undermine his credibility.
 
Obama has always maintained that he was born in Hawaii and now this
is about to be confirmed, so it seems, by Neil Abercrombie who is an
old friend of the Obama family, knowing the young Barack as a child.
 
Yesterday he announced that he would release Obama’s birth certificate clearly showing he was born on August 4, 1961.
 
Whether or not this will quieten the conspiracy theorist no-one
knows.  What it should do is convince those who were unconvinced either
way that he is entitled to the position he was elected to, as the
President of the United States.

Thanks to Jim Barlucci for sending in the following comment:
 
Why does Obama need the current governor of Hawaii to release his
long-form birth certificate for him? He could have released it at any
time. Something’s fishy all right. Could it be that Gov. Abercrombie, a
Democrat, plans to use his authority as governor to arrange a release of
a false document through the State Dept. of Health? Is this what Obama
was waiting for all this time to “clear up” this matter once and for
all: a Democratic governor willing to pull a few strings when the former
governor, Linda Lingle, a Republican, rightly refused to be a party to
such a farce? Incredible, isn’t it? Obama and the MSM want us to believe
that others–”the right people”–are responsible somehow for confirming
this basic fact about Obama’s eligibility; that it couldn’t have been
done by him alone in the earliest days of his candidacy for President.
But at least we now know. Linda Lingle was Obama’s nemesis, and not
because the certificate exists, but precisely because it doesn’t.

Ms. Banfield:

I read your article published at Culture Clash Daily. The title is somewhat
misleading since we certainly know Obama was born – we can see him in the flesh
and blood version.  No need to prove he was born.

There is a need; however, to prove that he is a Natural Born Citizen of the
United States.  Releasing the original long-form BC will do nothing to
prove such.

Obama admits to being born with Dual-citizenship (British/American).
 When one possesses dual-citizenship; thus dual-allegiances, which country
does he then pledge his allegiance to?  Actually that question should
never even be able to be asked of a presidential candidate, as a Natural Born
Citizen is born with only 1 (one) citizenship….only 1 (one) country to which
they pledge their allegiance.  

Does Obama pledge his allegiance to Britain or the US?   The answer is
totally irrelevant, since there is only one person who can know the true answer
to that question – Obama himself.  The fact that the question must be
asked makes Obama ineligible. 

The First Congress of the United States, during the second session
addressed the meaning of Natural Born Citizen.  You can look it up by
searching for “First Congress Session II Chapter 3” or you can find
it at this link: http://en.wikisource.org/wiki/United_States_Statutes_at_Large/Volume_1/1st_Congress/2nd_Session/Chapter_3

Here is the text:

Chap. ?.—An Act to
establish an uniform Rule of Naturalization.
[1]March 26, 1790. 

Section 1.Repealed by act of January 29, 1795,
ch. 20
.  Be it enacted by the Senate and House of
Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled,
 That
any alien, being a free white person,Alien whites may become citizens, and
how.  who shall have resided within the limits and under the
jurisdiction of the United States for the term of two years, may be admitted to
become a citizen thereof, on application to any common law court of record, in
any one of the states wherein he shall have resided for the term of one year at
least, and making proof to the satisfaction of such court, that he is a person
of good character, and taking the oath or affirmation prescribed by law, to
support the constitution of the United States, which oath or affirmation such
court shall administer; and the clerk of such court shall record such
application, and the proceedings thereon; and thereupon such person shall
be considered as a citizen of the United States. And the children of such
persons so naturalized, dwelling within the United States, being under the age
of twenty-one years at the time of such naturalization,Their children residing
here, deemed citizens.  shall also be considered as citizens of the
United States. And the children of citizens of the United States, that may be
born beyond sea,Also, children of citizens born beyond sea,
&c.  or out of the limits of the United States, shall be
considered as natural born citizens: Provided, That the right of citizenship shall not
descend to persons whose fathers have never been resident in the United States:Exceptions.  Provided also, That
no person heretofore proscribed by any state, shall be admitted a citizen as
aforesaid, except by an act of the legislature of the state in which such
person was proscribed.[2]

Approved, March 26, 1790.

Now, unless there is a state
statute in the state in which Obama was born (which is at this time unknown)
adopted prior to his birth, granting an exception to this Act, then Obama is
not even a Citizen of the US, let alone a Natural Born Citizen.

Your statement: “Under the American
constitution only a person born in America is entitled to hold the position of
either President or Vice President of the United States.” is simply not
true.  You might wish to actually read the Constitution before you
paraphrase it in the future.  The passage to which you refer actually
says: 

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; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who
shall not have attained to the Age of thirty-five Years, and been fourteen
Years a Resident within the United States.

Please note that no where in that passage does it state that “only a
person born in America is entitled to hold the position…”  You are
attempting to apply your own definition of NBC to the Constitution. Wishing
something were true is not the same as the truth.  Read the Constitution
and the First Congress’ definition for what they say and not for what you want
them to say.

Thanks to Dave From Idaho for sending through the following
comment:

How about pursuing the Kenya hospital birth certificate also or is
this a “birther conspiracy” to request such documents ?  What
are the odds all persons listed on the forthcoming document are either dead or
members of the established bureaucracy in Hawaii ??  Do I hear a
“Trust Me” coming soon ?  We shall see.
 
Thanks to Mike Fess for the following comment:

if obama was born in the us this makes his
grandmother a lier i saw the video she said she whitnessed the birth 35 miles
from her village

And also thanks for the following comment:

  A real or fake long
form birth certificate, stating he was born in Hawaii, or anywhere else, will
certainly not prove he is eligible to be president of the United States.

 In order for Obama to be eligible to be president of the United States,
he must be a natural-born-citizen. In order for Obama to be a
natural-born-citizen, he must have been born to parents (at least one) who were
citizens of the United states.

  Barack Obama Sr. was a British subject at the time of Obama’s birth and
later became a Kenyan citizen. Although Obama’s mother was a U.S. citizen, she
did not meet the residency requirements for passing U.S. citizenship to
Obama.  She would have had to have lived 10-years in the United States, 5
of which were after the age of 14.  Since she was 18 at the time of
Obama’s birth, she did not meet the requirements of the law.

 Barack Obama’s father was not a U.S. citizen and Obama’s mother was not
an American citizen long enough to pass citizenship on to Obama.
