Eligibility Update: Updated Obama Facts, Apartment Mystery, Taitz and CA SoS

by Phil on 06/8/2010

Columnist, author and blogger Diana West recently presented a posting entitled, “The Case Against Barack Hussein Obama.” In the posting, she presents the following “affidavit” from a retired Colorado policeman and detective.

It is an excellent survey of facts, to date, and will be included in the summary of relevant links that I append to eligibility updates here at The Right Side of Life.com:

The Case Against Barack Hussein Obama

The writer, John L. Work, a retired commissioned Colorado Peace Officer and a citizen of the United States of America, herein presents the following facts and circumstances regarding The President of The United States, Barack Hussein Obama.  This writer states to this Honorable Court of Public Opinion that Barack Hussein Obama has failed to truthfully disclose to the American People a substantial amount of documentary evidence about his origins and history, to wit:

Barack Hussein Obama, AKA Barry Obama, AKA Barry Soetoro, AKA Barry Dunham, DOB 8-4-1961, the duly elected and sworn President of The United States of America, has not proven that he is Constitutionally eligible to hold that Office.  The reasons this writer believes this to be true are as follows:

1)    Former Pennsylvania Deputy Attorney General Phillip Berg states in a lawsuit filed in 2008 that Obama’s father, Barack Obama, Sr., was at the time of Barack, Jr.’s birth a British subject of Kenya, Africa.

2)    Obama’s mother, Stanley Ann Dunham (DOB 11-29-1942), was not old enough to legally confer American citizenship on Barack, Jr. at his birth.

3)    Affidavits sworn to and signed by Rev. Kweli Shuhubia and Bishop Ron McRae say that Obama’s paternal grandmother, Sarah Obama,stated during an interview conducted in both the Swahili and English languages that she was present  at Barack Obama, Jr.’s birth in Mombasa, Kenya.

4)    Publication of Hawaiian newspaper birth announcements in 1961 did not necessarily constitute proof that a birth actually occurred within the State and offer no legal substantiation of citizenship in and of themselves;  further, during 1961  Hawaii’s law allowed issuance of Hawaiian birth certification for babies born outside the United States

5)    In his book “Dreams from My Father” Obama claims that, following his birth, his married parents lived together in Hawaii until 1962. Jerome Corsi (Ph.D. Harvard University), an internationally recognized scholar, author and investigative reporter, has discovered documentary evidence which shows that in fact Stanley Ann Dunham and her new-born son Barack, Jr., moved to Seattle, Washingtonwithin two weeks of his birth;  and that Stanley Ann started Fall semester classes there as a university student.

6)    Jerome Corsi has been unable to locate any recorded evidence in Hawaii of either a marriage between Barack, Sr. and Stanley Dunham, or that they ever lived together.

7)    Aaron Klein, author of The Manchurian President,  reported in the October 27, 2009 World Net Daily that Obama’s wife, Michelle Obama, publicly stated that Stanley Ann Dunham was singlewhen she had Barack, Jr.

8)    The Maui News published a report on January 21, 2009, in which former teachers Aimee Yatsushiro and Katherine Nakamoto said that Obama attended Noelani Elementary School from 1966 to 1967.  No records from the school have been released.

9)    Circa 1967 Stanley Ann Dunham married an Indonesian Muslim named Lolo Soetoro (DOB circa 1935).

10) The Soetoros lived in Jakarta, Indonesia where Barack, Jr. attended Franciskus Assissi school under the name Barry Soetoro, registered as a Muslim. He later attended an Indonesian  public school.

11) Stanley Soetoro divorced Lolo in 1980. No records of either Stanley Ann’s or Barry Soetoro’s repatriation as citizens of the United States from Indonesia have been released.  No name change records have been released.

12) A report published by Chelsea Schilling on 6-9-2009 in World Net Daily says:  a) that Obama attended Punahou School in Honolulu on a scholarship from 5th through 12th grades, and graduated in 1979. b)  that none of Obama’s Punahou school financial records have been released.

13) Schilling’s report further states:  a)  that Obama attended Occidental College in Los Angeles from 1979 to 1981.  b)  that attorney Gary Kreep of the U.S. Justice Foundation served a subpoena on the College for Obama’s financial and scholarship records in order to determine if Obama, who was studying on a scholarship, attended Occidental as a foreign national.  c)  that attorneys for Obama intervened and got the subpoena quashed in Court.  d)  that none of Obama’s Occidental financial records have been released.

14) Schilling’s report also states:  a)  In 1982 Obama transferred from Occidental to Columbia University in NYC.  b)  that while he claims to have been active in the Black Student Organization, no one among a number of prominent student leaders interviewed by the New York Times recalled Obama being there.  c)  that Fox News contacted 400 Columbia students from that time period – and not one of them remembered him.  d)  that Obama graduated from Columbia in 1983, but school officials claim they do not have a copy of his senior thesis.  e)  that Obama has refused to release his Columbia transcripts.

15) Schilling’s report further states that Obama entered Harvard UniversityLaw School, graduated in 1991 and that he served as the Editor of The Harvard Law Review.

16) Schilling’s report also says:  a)  that Obama has not released hismedical records. b)  that Obama’s passport records have never been released  c)  that Obama at one point in his life traveled to Pakistan, using a passport of unknown origin   d)  that all files from Obama’s years as an Illinois State Senator are sealed. e)  that Obama’s law client list is sealed.  f)  that Obama’s records with theIllinois State Bar Association are sealed.  g)  that Obama’s baptism records are sealed.  h)  that Obama’s adoption records are sealed.

17) An AP report published on 6-27-2004 in the Sunday Standard online edition states that Obama was born in Kenya.

18) Mayhill Fowler reported in the April 7, 2008 Huffington Post on an Obama April 6, 2008 fundraiser speech, during which Obama claimed to have traveled to Pakistan when he was in college.  On 4-18-2010 this writer followed Mayhill’s link to an audio-recording of the speech and found that it has been removed from the site.

19) Jerome Corsi reported in World Net Daily on 10-26-2008 thatObama’s original long-form birth certificate is sealed by Hawaii’s Governor, Linda Lingle.

20) On 11-13-2008, attorney at law and author Debbie Schlussel published a copyrighted report of an investigation she commissioned to be done by retired ICE Agent Stephen Coffman into Obama’s Selective Service registration documents.  Coffman’s evidentiary findings led to Schlussel’s conclusion that Barack Obama “…either didn’t register for the draft or did so belatedly and fraudulently…”

21) On 8-10-2009 Hawaii Department of Health spokesperson Janet Okubo refused to verify the authenticity of an image, generated by computer and released to the press corps by Obama campaign spokesman Ben LaBolt.  LaBolt said that the image depicted was Barack Obama’s birth certificate.  Okubo also refused to confirm the veracity of a second and different online computer-generated Hawaiian Certification of Live Birth, posted by FactCheck.org.

22)  On October 1, 2009, Susan Daniels, a citizen of the State of Ohio and a licensed private investigator for the plaintiffs in United States District Court Case SACV09-00082-DOC (Anx), Captain Pamela Barnett et al v. Defendants Barack Hussein Obama, Michelle L. R. Obama, Hillary Rodham Clinton, Robert M. Gates, and Joseph R. Biden, filed an affidavit with the Court.  Daniels’ affidavit states that she has found evidence proving that Barack Obama’s Social Security Number was issued by the State of Connecticut between 1977 and 1979; further, that Obama’s Social Security Number appears to be originally associated with a man who was born in the 1890s and is now deceased.

23) Susan Daniels filed a second affidavit with the Court on October 19, 2009, which says that further investigation uncovered eight different Social Security Numbers for Barack Hussein Obama in addition to the number to which she alluded in her first affidavit, and two different Social Security Numbers for Michelle Obama.

24) This writer states to this Honorable Court of Public Opinion that there is no known evidence of record to this date which shows that Barack Hussein Obama ever lived in Connecticut.

25) Article 2, Section 1 of the Constitution of The United States of America mandates that “…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…”

Wherefore, this writer believes he has shown reasonable grounds to believe that Barack Hussein Obama has deliberately, unreasonably and with guile concealed nearly all records of his personal documented history from public scrutiny;  and that requests to view those records are reasonable, rational and within the American People’s province. This writer believes the People of The United States have a right and responsibility to demand that all of the afore-described sealed records be released in order that the electorate may examine them to finally determine who Barack Hussein Obama really is, and whence he came.

From commenter “misanthropicus,” today, the DailyCaller posted a rather blunt analysis of Mr. Obama’s background surrounding the “mystery years” of the apartment at Columbia that’s now for rent (excerpted):

The apartment itself is shabby, a one-bedroom, third-floor walk-up. And while living there is unlikely to shed any light on the issue, it’s interesting that so little is known about that era of Obama’s life.

Obama spent two years Occidental College in Los Angeles, transferring to Columbia University in New York City in 1981 and graduating two years later. Little is known about Obama’s time at Occidental, but even less is known about his time at Columbia.

The president did not release his transcripts from either school during his campaign for the presidency, as John McCain, John Kerry, George W. Bush and Al Gore did. Occidental and Columbia have said they are prevented by federal law from releasing the transcripts.

Obama’s thesis on nuclear disarmament, on which he spent a year at Columbia, has apparently been lost. Obama says he doesn’t have a copy and his professor at the time thinks he lost it when he moved a few years ago.

Obama barely mentions his years at Columbia in his two autobiographies. He has said he didn’t know many people at Columbia and that he spent most of his time in the library reading, “like a monk.” Indeed, Fox News contacted 400 of Obama’s former classmates – no one remembered him.

Some of Obama’s Columbia classmates have since come forward, saying they remembered Obama there. Both schools have confirmed Obama was their student. …

To the New York Times, Obama “declined repeated requests to talk about his New York years, release his Columbia transcript or identify even a single fellow student, co-worker, roommate or friend from those years.” A spokesman told the Times Obama “doesn’t remember the names of a lot of people in his life.”

And don’t forget to visit Dr. Orly Taitz’ web site (virus-free) where she has posted a number of postings where she is garnering a fair amount of support in her run for California’s Secretary of State job.

I can guarantee that if she were to win the position, Obama would probably fare better resigning in 2012 than try to be put on that State’s ballot!

    If by “fair amount,” you mean losing nearly 3:1, sure.

  2. 06/9/2010BlueOhio says:

    Obama has proven his birth in Hawaii by showing the OFFICIAL BIRTH CERTIFICATE OF HAWAII. He has shown his birth certificate. He posted it and showed the physical copies of the document to both Politifact and FactCheck.

    The Certification of Live Birth is the official birth certificate of Hawaii and it is the only one that Hawaii issues, and Hawaii no longer issues the original birth certificate even when someone asks for his own original birth certificate. The Certification of Live Birth is accepted as proof of birth in the USA by the US State Department and the branches of the military, and in Obama’s case the facts on it were confirmed twice by the officials in Hawaii and once by the governor of Hawaii.

    In addition, there is this witness, who recalls being told of Obama’s birth in Hawaii in 1961 and writing home to her father about it (http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/2170432/posts).

    Also, we have transcripts of the grandmother interview in which the Kenyan grandmother says repeatedly that Obama was born in Hawaii, and in a separate interview she said that the first that her family in Kenya had heard of the birth was in a letter received from Hawaii many months after the birth.

    ALL US citizens born in the USA are Natural Born Citizens. The citizenship of a parent has no effect on the Natural Born Citizen status of a citizen born in the USA.

    BlueOhio,

    Welcome to the site.

    Of course, when you say that “he” has shown his birth certificate and posted it on various third-party sites and blogs, I suppose you’re referencing Mr. Obama? In reality, all that we’ve seen are images of documents posted by other people that could just as easily have been Photoshopped for all anyone knows. And even if the images are legite, no independent third party with actual document analysis credentials has ever actually inspected the physical piece of paper.

    Secondly, you’ll have no argument with me that a certification of live birth is acceptable by the State Department and other entities for the purposes of identification outside of presidential eligibility. After all, we’re not talking about getting a driver’s license here.

    Also remember that FactCheck.org has already admitted that Mr. Obama was a British subject at birth — that alone is a disqualifier in my view for someone to be President.

    If you wish, I’ll give you the last word.

    Thanks for the comment,

    -Phil

    Here’s something even better: The State of Hawaii’s index data regarding Obama.

    Secondly, you’ll have no argument with me that a certification of live birth is acceptable by the State Department and other entities for the purposes of identification outside of presidential eligibility.

    Funny how there’s no law, rule, statute, or case saying eligibility issues are subjected to heightened evidentiary standards.

    Also remember that FactCheck.org has already admitted that Mr. Obama was a British subject at birth — that alone is a disqualifier in my view for someone to be President.

    And your non-expert opinion is in the distinct minority (and without legal support).

    bob,

    As I’ve said many, many times before, there is no law in existence that determines (1) how to enforce presidential eligibility nor (2) to what extent any documentation is required to make such a determination. This is also why I think that presidential eligibility is a 10th Amendment issue as well; the Constitution spells out who is eligible but never goes about discussing what (definition) that is nor how to enforce.

    Regarding my opinion, of course it “is in the distinct minority;” that was never a question, yet it also does not diminish in any way my right to hold an opinion.

    Secondly, when you say “(and without legal support),” you’re actually being intellectually disingenuous. How? Well, as I’ve just stated in the above paragraph, since there is no legal basis for presidential eligibility enforcement, how could you honestly say that my opinion would have any legal support?

    To me, that is recursively circular reasoning. My opinion has no support legally because there is no existing law that would provide said legal support!

    Nice.

    10th Amendment is the way out.

    There aren’t laws for many situations. And? Candidate challenges have routinely been handled by the courts; there’s an existing body of law. (And with respect to the presidency, there are other safeguards, i.e., the Electoral College and Congress.)

    (2) to what extent any documentation is required to make such a determination.

    That’s a simple evidentiary question. In Obama’s case, all the law requires is proof of birth in United States, and there are many methods to prove that, with a birth certificate being the most obvious.

    This is also why I think that presidential eligibility is a 10th Amendment issue as well

    Again, your non-expert opinion is in the distinct minority. (But no one is preventing you from holding or expressing your opinions.)

    the Constitution spells out who is eligible but never goes about discussing what (definition) that is nor how to enforce.

    The Constitution is vague on lots of things; that’s why the courts exist (and have given sufficient guidance thus far).

    Well, as I’ve just stated in the above paragraph, since there is no legal basis for presidential eligibility enforcement, how could you honestly say that my opinion would have any legal support?

    Because enforcement is possible: pre-election challenges are handled by the courts, and, as the courts have made clear, Congress alone has the power to remove a sitting president.

    My opinion has no support legally because there is no existing law that would provide said legal support!

    Exactly; you are making legal assertions that have no basis in existing law, and ignoring the law that does exist.
