Thank You Mr. President For Finally Releasing Your Long Form Birth Certificate

President Obama finally released his long-form birth certificate this morning. I can't help wondering why he spent millions of  taxpayers dollars to suppress it in the first place. Neither can I fathom why his passport records, international travel documentation  and academic records are sealed. I believe with every fiber of my being that he has something to hide.

I have always maintained that whether or not he was born in this Hawaii, he is Constitutionally ineligible to hold the office of  POTUS because he was adopted by Lolo Soetero and moved to Indonesia in 1967 at a time when there was no dual citizenship. Therefore upon his return to the US he would be a Naturalized citizen and not a natural born citizen at that point. However, I have since learned that a parent can not renounce the U.S. Citizenship of a minor child under Immigration and Nationality Act (INA). So, there goes that theory.  Now I can only say that if the document released is authentic (which I doubt) what was the big deal in the first place? Why did he wait so long? And, when will we see his passport? How was he able to go to Pakistan in 1981 when Americans were prohibited from traveling there unless he went as a citizen of Indonesia?

Nonetheless, on the birth certificate Obama's father is listed as "African" (I question why in 1961 it wouldn't read negro or black) and this does not help plead the case for his eligibility if we consider the definition of "Natural Born" citizen. The article below explains:



The Definition of a Birther
By
Leo Patrick Haffey


© January 1, 2011

"Be not afraid of greatness; some are born great, some achieve greatness, and others have greatness thrust upon them." William Shakespeare

"We the people are the rightful masters of both Congress and the courts, not to overthrow the Constitution but to overthrow the men who pervert the Constitution." Abraham Lincoln

The definition of a birther is: Birther--noun--a person who believes - against evidence - that Barack Obama was born outside of the United States.
By definition I am not a birther. I do not believe or disbelieve that Barack Hussein Obama Jr. was born outside of the United States. I readily admit that I do not know where BHO Jr. was born. However, both BHO Jr. and his closest family friends like Hawaii Governor Neil Abercrombie vociferously allege that BHO Jr. was born in Hawaii to Barack Hussein Obama Sr. and Stanley Ann Dunham.

If we take BHO Jr. at his word then there is no doubt that he is not a Natural Born Citizen of the United States as required by the Presidential Qualifications Clause of Article II Section 1 Paragraph 5 of the United States Constitution. The Constitution requires that to be the President of the United States, a person must be born in the United States of two parents who are citizens of the United States. By BHO Junior’s own admission his father was a British/Kenyan subject (citizen) at the time of his birth. Thus BHO Jr. is disqualified for the Presidency. (emphasis added by CBW)

There is a clear, concise definition of the term "Natural Born Citizen" in Vattel's Law of Nations which was the principal legal reference book used by the Founding Fathers in writing the Constitution.

"The natural-born citizens, are those born in the country, of parents who are citizens...it is necessary that a person be born of a father who is a citizen; for, if he is born there of a foreigner, it will be only the place of his birth, and not his country."
There have been innumerable United States Supreme Court Decisions that have referenced Vattel’s Law of Nations as a resource in interpreting the original intent of the Founding Fathers when writing the Constitution.

The following are a few of the cases that have reiterated Vattel’s definition of the meaning of the term, Natural Born Citizen.

In the Venus Case, 12 U.S. 8 Cranch 253 253 (1814), Justice Livingston, who wrote the unanimous decision, quoted the entire §212 paragraph from the French edition of Vattel’s Law of Nations:
"Vattel who…is more explicit and more satisfactory on it than any other whose work has fallen into my hands, says:
The citizens are the members of the civil society; bound to this society by certain duties, and subject to its authority, they equally participate in its advantages. The natives (natural born citizens) or indigenes are those born in the country of parents who are citizens. Society not being able to subsist and to perpetuate itself but by the children of the citizens, those children naturally follow the condition of their fathers, and succeed to all their rights.

The inhabitants, as distinguished from citizens, are strangers who are permitted to settle and stay in the country. Bound by their residence to the society, they are subject to the laws of the state while they reside there, and they are obliged to defend it…"
Justice Story ruled in Shanks v. Dupont, 28 U.S. 3 Pet. 242 242 (1830), ‘If she was not of age, then she might well be deemed under the circumstances of this case to hold the citizenship of her father, for children born in a country, continuing while under age in the family of the father, partake of his national character as a citizen of that country. Her citizenship, then, being prima facie established, and indeed this is admitted in the pleadings…"

In Minor v. Happersett , 88 U.S. 162 (1875), Chief Justice Morrison Waite delivered the opinion of the Supreme Court, "The Constitution does not in words say who shall be natural-born citizens. Resort must be had elsewhere to ascertain that. At common law, with the nomenclature of which the framers of the Constitution were familiar, it was never doubted that all children born in a country of parents who were its citizens became themselves, upon their birth, citizens also. These were natives or natural-born citizens, as distinguished from aliens or foreigners."

Justice Gray ruled in United States v. Wong Kim Ark, 169 U.S. 649 (1898), "At common law, with the nomenclature of which the framers of the Constitution were familiar, it was never doubted that all children, born in a country of parents who were its citizens, became themselves, upon their birth, citizens also. These were natives, or natural-born citizens, as distinguished from aliens or foreigners."

A reading of the above referenced United States Supreme Court Cases coupled with a reading of Vattel’s clear and concise definition of a Natural Born Citizen in his monumental work, Law of Nations, leaves no doubt that Barack Hussein Obama Jr. is not constitutionally qualified to be the President of the United States of America.
Unfortunately for all Americans, the Supreme Court of the United States of America has yet to rule on the definition of a Natural Born Citizen as it pertains to the Presidency of the United States. It is not as some say that the Supreme Court has heretofore evaded or avoided the opportunity to achieve greatness and rule on this most profound constitutional issue of first impression. Rather it is that no Justices in the history of American jurisprudence have had this momentous fate thrust upon them. As always, I have an unvanquished trust that these "just" men and women will seize the fate before them and make an everlasting first and foremost impression on the future of the Greatest Nation in the History of Mankind.

You are so right, I am a black woman who did not vote for Obama and I question the timing of his releasing the birth certificate now. Also I have posted the same statement you have on other blogs, if his step father adopted Obama in Indonesia, then he was not an American citizen after the fact, so this birth certificate is null and void. Never trust a snake, because you will get bite every time, and I don't trust Obama nor his handlers!

Obama: "See I fooled those birthers. I spent over $1 million in legal fees to hide it the birth certificate when I could have spent a few dollars over 2 years ago to put the controversy to rest and show myself to be an honest person. But I did not need to be honest to be president. I love wasting over a million dollars to make my enemies look bad, and I hate the word integrity."

Vile. Ignorant Pathetic,

Nothing the man could do will satisfy racists and Toms because you will never accept a black man as your President.

Conservative Black Woman said...

UTS~Will you ever grow up, catch a clue, and start using your ability to reason?

Do facts matter to you at all?

Those were rhetorical questions of course because of course you will allow nothing to get in the way of your blind devotion to the feigned notion of black solidarity.

That Usurper you call a President is a fraudulent bastardization of all things sacred to racism chaser like yourself....and that is vile, willfully ignorant and utterly pathetic.

uptownsteve said...

"Those were rhetorical questions of course because of course you will allow nothing to get in the way of your blind devotion to the feigned notion of black solidarity."

As opposed to your feigned notion that white conservatives and birthers regard you as anything more than a compliant nigger?

Smile said...

I haven't involved myself much to the birth certificate issue previously.

Hillary Clinton started this. A Democrat atty wanted this in the courts. Obama(despite the importance of getting elected POTUS and the healthcare issue) wanted to allow the distraction to go on...until now.

Why is a distraction needed in this global chess game?

Smile said...

CBW, there's a fly on your butt.

LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Conservative Black Woman said...

UTS you wrote:"As opposed to your feigned notion that white conservatives and birthers regard you as anything more than a compliant nigger?"

Unlike you UTS, I don't give a damn how "conservatives", "birthers", or "Black Quasi-Socialist Fundamentalist Progressive Racism Chasers" like you see regard me. I know who I am, and what I am.

Compliant? Hardly....that's laughable. I'm quite provocative actually. My intimates pray that no one engages me publically on these matters...lol. Compliant, Ha!!!....rofl. No UTS, you are the compliant one....towing the tired old worn out, whining plantation negro shit -- "Can't stand to see a black man in office" -- good grief! Have you learned nothing in 3 years?

Conservative Black Woman said...

@Smile....I'm so tired of these knee-jerk reactions. I bet UTS and others of his ilk who will undoubtedly chime in over the next few days will even read the article and initiate an exchange based on the content therein. Nope....they won't. They would much rather indict me as a "Tom".

This country is on the cusp (if it hasn't already) of losing its sovereignty and becoming a part of what Bush called the New World Order and we are distracted NOW by Obama Birth certificate. It was he who said “The only people who don’t want to disclose the truth are people with something to hide” --yet he withheld this information for almost 3 years? Yet, UTS and other racism chasers are incapable of making the mental leap that HE IS HIDING SOMETHING?!!!???

uptownsteve said...

"Obama(despite the importance of getting elected POTUS and the healthcare issue) wanted to allow the distraction to go on...until now."

OMIGOD!!!!

So Obama wanted the distraction to go on?

Not the idiots who tried to divert attention away from the real issues that effect Americans and the entire globe to focus on a issue that all sane people knew was bogus anyway.

But Obama allowed it go on.

Unfreakinbelievable.

And what about the racists and Toms who now have seen the President's long form birth certificate and are now changing course and questioning his admission to Harvard Law School?

That Obama's fault too?

Old School Fridays said...

http://www.scribd.com/doc/54015762/Barack-Hussein-Obama-Sr-Immigration-File

More proof Obama was born here, and that African and African American were used in 1961.

I know you blocked me, but that's because you don't want the truth.

Conservative Black Woman said...

Old School Friday~Baby, you are so clueless. Read the article, then leave a comment. The issue isn't now nor has it ever been for me whether or not Obama was born in Hawaii. He could have suckled the teet of Martha Washington, helped George cut down the cherry tree, and have been rocked in that arms of Andrew Jackson for all I care -- The issue is whether or not he is a Natural Born citizen according to the Presidential Clause of Article II Section I Paragraph 5 of the US Constitution. As you with your submitted link (thank you-btw) and the BOGUS AZZ long-form certificate of live birth illustrate his Daddy (Obama Sr.) was not a U.S. Citizen therefore Baby Obama is not a Natural Born Citizen but rather a Naturalized Citizen. Naturalized citizens are Constitutionally ineligible to hold the office.

You should also know OSF, that I have only deleted one entry in the entire history of this blog. I do my research and your submission only pleads my case. If you'd bothered to read the article you would have known that.

UTS, you are just pitiful. When you read the article and engage me on the merits of the post then perhaps we can have a reasonable discourse.

WhiteBowieSteve:

When you say "THEY will never accept that a Black man is PRESIDENT"............

DO YOU SEE any applicability to PEOPLE LIKE YOU?

Why is it that you and other Black Quasi-Socialist Progressive-Fundamentalist Racism Chasers are LOATHED to treat President Obama (and other Favorable Elected Officials in all rungs of government) when they

* FAIL to deliver for the Black Community - See the schools

* VIOLATE your leftist ideological points (DROPPING BOMBS ON AFRICA - just like Ronald Reagan did)

* USE Black people - after making our BALLOTS EQUAL and then convince us that if we INVEST this ballot as they prescribe that WE WOULD PROSPER. The ONLY people prospering in Detroit and Baltimore are the DEMOCRATIC ELECTED OFFICIALS who's offices are safe


YOU HAVE A PROBLEM with a BLACK MAN as THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES.

1) Take a look at the daily feed from Filled Negro. WHAT does he talk about most?

2) Take a look at the political articles on The Root.com & The Grio.com WHAT is their focus?

3) ...........AfroSpear?

4) Various Lampblacked Yellow Journalist opinion writers (Eugene Robinson, Earl Ofari Hutchenson, Mary C Curtis, Cynthia Tucker)???

Do you hear ANY of them talking about the utter destruction that is going on in the MISSION ACCOMPLISHED DISTRICTS that they had previously WON?

Do you see the distraction is - that - with Black folks FEARING RACISM - more than we are inclined to

* HATE failing schools
* HATE seeing a Black man SHOT DEAD on the street as was the case in NYC this week
* HATE the Black unemployment numbers....

they VALUE OBAMA AS PRESIDENT more than they care about one feeble Negro on the street who is having it rough - DESPITE all of the past promises.

This is about NON-WHITE WHITE SUPREMACY Steve.

YOU need to go get a tetanus shot to cure yourself and then go holla at your friends.

Lol @ the other anonymous. McCain is the Lizard Man...

Now, Obama didn't even consider himself "black" until he got to college when he found it was advantageous... to cover up poor performance. Now, having been black all my life... I find that a bit offensive. Almost as offensive as his wife saying she's never been proud of America ... until she got some of what she felt she deserved. What we have here is a man with black skin who doesn't think he's black, and a "black woman" who doesn't think she's an American unless SHE is being served... and you wonder why people are contentious over them?

The point remains, the man wasted time and money COVERING UP something that was just as easily revealed if he had nothing to hide... He's just like Nixon and Clinton. Maybe it's his "white side" coming out? ... good grief. Just accept that no matter his color, he's a liar and a politician. He will always say one thing and do another unless it serves HIM (and his wife is the same) That doesn't make him black, or white.. it makes him a liar and a thief. Just like most other politicians.

Jina said...

Wow...you are a pathetic idiot. This man has nothing to hide. The only reason he waited so long was not to legitimize people who tried to claim he wasn't a real American. The funny thing is that with all the documents and witnesses Obama will be able to get, there are still many in this world who will not believe he is a true American because at the end of the day he is black.

Bottom line, if his mother is a U.S citizen and he was born in the U.S, he is a U.S citizen. You are legitimizing the claims of people who would never vouch for your BLACK @$$ boo boo. Unfortunately this is not your cause. Are you one of those idiots who believe that a man who graduated in the top 5% of his class at Harvard didn't deserve to be there too? If you were a truly educated women you would have already had some form of experience with the above mention racism in college or high school. And please don't tell me that you're one of those blacks that decry Affirmative Action.

It's a shame that we have so many black people criticizing a black person who is trying to do positive things. Please don't start saying race doesn't matter and I'll vote and think w/o race in mind, because at the end of the day this affects you and your children. It is disadvantageous for you as a black woman not consider race, because at the end of the day most people will consider race when they consider you.

How the black community reacts to Pres.Barack Obama affects how much the larger community feels they can REVEAL about how they feel about Obama. It would be nice to live in a world where blacks could be differentiated, but that is sadly not the case, and the success of this presidency has implications for the obstacles faced in front of blacks in the generations to come.

People complain, but overall if you were to list everything he has done over these few years you would see a very massive list with practically everything he had promised to do. Don't project your hate and issues with black men and women on our president. Get over your daddy issues see things objectively.

I suspect that you are one of those blacks that felt they never meshed with blacks around them. And you've decided to mesh with a group of whites within an ideology that uses you as little more than a tool and a puppet, that would have little use for you if we didn't have a black president or you were no longer willing to stick to the script(i.e. Michael Steele). Whites love a good black-on-black squabble, and you are really pleasing them right now.

Regarding the 1981 trip to Pakistan.
Even Bill O'Reilly and Fox News have admitted that there was no bar to US citizens travelling to Pakistan. Just an advisory for travel between India & Pakistan. Look at factcheck.org

And in America in the 60s just as Apartheid South Africa. When black people visited from other countries. They were not treated as the natives. And so there was a difference as an African than a negroid american. My parents who visited from Jamaica on British passports were treated differently in the sixties. My uncle went to Howard in the 50s and my aunt who is African American. Tell stories of how different he was treated because of that British passport.

lol, love how you deleted my post. Was that you way of giving the final word? You can't get that in real life, huh? You're hilarious, why do you keep trying to make me laugh.

A black man is president, get over it. Too bad you are not Michelle Obama. Black America isn't completely "clueless" to things going on around them. You are not the smartest black woman in America by a long shot. Please continue taking your pills and please get some new vocab.

What is the conspiracy that you think Obama is a part of?

Anonymous said...

I have asked many people and got basically the same answer. I asked if Obama is a Natural Born Citizen and I have been told yes, because he was born on US soil. So this means, to me anyway, that anyone born in the US can be President. Anchor babies for example.

I always thought that a Natural Born Citizen had to be a child of "PARENTS" that were US citizens. I thought that by PARENTS it means that both parents had to be US citizens.

I understand that an anchor babies are US citizens, but are they NATURAL BORN CITIZENS?

There was a reason the founding fathers put that the President had to be a NBC, and not just a citizen.
