The RepubX posting includes the delivery instructions for the above.

TO: Hon. M. Nyambura Kamau
Consulate General of Kenya in Los Angeles
Park Mile Plaza, Mezzanine Floor

DATE: August 2, 2009 A.D.
SUBJECT: intervention by United States ex rel. in
Berg v. Obama et al., Third Circuit Appeal No. 08-4443
Greetings Honorable Consul General:
My office legally represents the United States (Federal Government) at the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit in Philadelphia, in the case of Berg v. Obama et al., Appeal No. 08-4443:
Please be advised that newly found evidence renders it appropriate formally to serve your good offices with a SUBPOENA IN A CIVIL CASE, duly issued by the District Court of the United States for the Central District of California.
The purpose of this SUBPOENA will be to command your good offices to produce and permit inspection and copying of an authentic original of the attached CERTIFIED COPY OF REGISTRATION OF BIRTH of Barack Hussein Obama II on August 4, 1961 A.D., at Coast Provincial General Hospital in Mombasa, Republic of Kenya.
Please be aware that there is a separate District Court proceeding presently underway in the United States District Court for the Central District of California which also seeks to compel authentication of said REGISTRATION OF BIRTH: Keyes et al. v. Obama et al., case number 8:09-cv-82 (USDC, Los Angeles, California, USA).
For your convenience, we believe this is a valid link to a true and correct copy of the latest MOTION filed and served in the latter case:
Thank you very much for your timely and professional consideration.
/s/ Paul Andrew Mitchell
Paul Andrew Mitchell, B.A., M.S.

Criminal Investigator and Federal Witness: 18 U.S.C. 1510, 1512-13
As the Notice says, this subpoena was sent to the Kenyan Consulate in response to Mr. Lucas Smith’s affidavit regarding the alleged Kenya Birth Certificate. It is interesting to note that, should the subpoena be duly acted upon, there could be a response confirming or denying the legitimacy of the birth certificate, or there could be a response that no such document exists. And, depending on the latter response, that could then mean that either the birth certificate isn’t legitimate or that Mr. Obama was not, in fact, born in Kenya.
I will again reiterate that retreiving a copy of Mr. Obama’s original 1961 birth certificate is only one major aspect of the eligibility saga. The other aspect is his already-admitted Kenyan/British citizenship at birth.
Now, if only we could see a receipt of the transaction that produced the alleged Hawaiian COLB!
