    I would like to know why the pressure comcerning obama’s true birth certificate hasn’t continued,why would he spend the money he did to keep Americans from seeing his birth certificate if he didn’t have something to hide?

    • Billy Wells

      He has shared his birth certificate with the nation. What more can he do? It is you lunitics that are spending money trying to make beileve he is not an American Citizen. You keep demanding to see one but ignore the one he has shown you and even the birth anoucments in the local paper when he was born.
      But maybe, just maybe he can go back in time and put the birth anoucements in the papers so he can be President today. I bet that’s it. He went back in time and changed history.

      • jerry semenick

        thats why alot of what has been seen is contradictive of the one before,I’m not convinced yet.All of the other presidents have shown military,medical,school,etc.
        I havn’t seen any of it.

        • Billy Wells

          The Constitution says that you must be a natural born citizen of the United States in order to be President. Obama has shown proof that he was born in Hawaii. The newspaper in Hawaii even printed a birth anouncement additional proof.
          You are looking for anything you can to prove that a black man isn’t President. You know what? Live with it. We put up with George Bush for 8 years even though he didn’t really win in 2000. He was appointed by the Supreme Court. We had to deal with it.

          • Carri

            PLEASE GET OVER YOURSELF! You people have it both ways don’t ya? You get to blame everything on Bush AND you get to call anyone who objects to the Chicago style protectionism that surrounds this president a racist. It’s all about his color. Maybe in your mind, not in mine nor most of the birthers. Who then is the real racist?

            If you’d paid attention AT ALL you would know that the long form BC has never been released. If there is no issue with the origianl BC then why won’t he simply release it? That is all we are asking. Let us see it!

            Billy Wells,

            Ooops….I think your credibility is deminished when you make a potentially racist comment about your belief folks are going after Obama because he’s black.

            Why can’t you continue a discussion/debate without throwing a race card into it? It makes your position seem suspect and also seems like emotional and manipulative blackmail.

            You just had to bring USURPER Obama’s color into this isue again! It doesn’t matter if he is black, white, yellow or polk-a-dotted, the fact that he is supposedly breaking the law is the issue! Quit with the color shit! If a hard look was taken at the issue of color in our country, you would find-out that the reverse-discrimination is way out of control! The issue here though isn’t color! Read the following Wells!


            AP- WASHINGTON D.C. – In a move certain to fuel the debate over Obama’s qualifications for the presidency, the group “Americans for Freedom of Information” has Released copies of President Obama’s college transcripts from Occidental College . Released today, the transcript school indicates that Obama, under the name Barry Soetoro, received financial aid as a foreign student from Indonesia as an undergraduate at the school. The transcript was released by Occidental College in compliance with a court order in a suit brought by the group in the Superior Court of California.
            The transcript shows that Obama (Soetoro), applied for financial aid and was awarded a fellowship for foreign students from the Fulbright Foundation Scholarship program. To qualify, for the scholarship, a student must claim foreign citizenship.
            This document would seem to provide the smoking gun that many of Obama’s detractors have been seeking. Along with the evidence that he was first born in Kenya and there is no record of him ever applying for US citizenship, this is looking pretty grim. The news has created a firestorm at the White House as the release casts increasing doubt about Obama’s legitimacy and qualification to serve as President article titled, “Obama Eligibility Questioned,” leading some to speculate that the story may overshadow economic issues on Obama’s first official visit to the U.K. In a related matter, under growing pressure from several groups,
            Justice Antonin Scalia announced that the Supreme Court agreed on Tuesday to hear arguments concerning Obama’s legal eligibility to serve as President in a case brought by Leo Donofrio of New Jersey . This lawsuit claims Obama’s dual citizenship disqualified him from serving as president. Donofrio’s case is just one of 18 suits brought by citizens demanding proof of Obama’s citizenship or qualification to serve as president.
            Gary Kreep of the United States Justice Foundation has released the results of their investigation of Obama’s campaign spending. This study estimates that Obama has spent upwards of $950,000 in campaign funds in the past year with eleven law firms in 12 states for legal resources to block disclosure of any of his personal records. Mr. Kreep indicated that the investigation is still ongoing but that the final report will be provided to the U.S. attorney general, Eric Holder. Mr. Holder has refused to comment on the matter.

            Subject: RE: Issue of Passport?

            While I’ve little interest in getting in the middle of the Obama birth issue, Paul Hollrah over at FSM did so yesterday and believes the issue can be resolved by Obama answering one simple question: What passport did he use when he was shuttling between New York, Jakarta, and Karachi?
            So how did a young man who arrived in New York in early June 1981, without the price of a hotel room in his pocket, suddenly come up with the price of a round-the-world trip just a month later?
            And once he was on a plane, shuttling between New York, Jakarta, and Karachi, what passport was he offering when he passed through Customs and Immigration?
            The American people not only deserve to have answers to these questions, they must have answers. It makes the debate over Obama’s citizenship a rather short and simple one.
            Q: Did he travel to Pakistan in 1981, at age 20?
            A: Yes, by his own admission.
            Q: What passport did he travel under?
            A: There are only three possibilities.
            1) He traveled with a U.S. Passport,
            2) He traveled with a British passport, or
            3) He traveled with an Indonesia passport.

            Q: Is it possible that Obama traveled with a U.S. Passport in 1981?
            A: No. It is not possible. Pakistan was on the U.S. State Department’s “no travel” list in 1981.
            Conclusion: When Obama went to Pakistan in 1981 he was traveling either with a British passport or an Indonesian passport.

            If he were traveling with a British passport that would provide proof that he was born in Kenya on August 4, 1961, not in Hawaii as he claims. And if he were traveling with an Indonesian passport that would tend to prove that he relinquished whatever previous citizenship he held, British or American, prior to being adopted by his Indonesian step-father in 1967.

            Whatever the truth of the matter, the American people need to know how he managed to become a “naturalborn” American citizen between 1981 and 2008..
            Given the destructive nature of his plans for America, as illustrated by his speech before Congress and the disastrous spending plan he has presented to Congress, the sooner we learn the truth of all this, the better.

            If you don’t care that Your President is not a natural born Citizen and in Violation of the Constitution, then Delete this and go into your cocoon.
            If you do care then Forward this!

            I have forwarded this to every red-blooded ‘real’ American I could find! I’ve sent it to each Senator and Congressman! The issue is that USURPER Obama has broken the law/rules to be eligible to be in OUR White House! That is the sum total of the issue! Once it all comes to everyone’s attention and the truth is found out, there are only two issues left! The USURPER either resigns gracefully, or his ass is ‘IMPEACHED’! Personally, I don’t give a damn which; but there is another issue to be concerned with! If this moron has illegally run for President, knowing he was/is ineligible, then he has defrauded the United States Government! That should bring federal charges against him with the possibility of incarcerated in prison! That, for all of the lying he has spewed to the American people, I would like to see happen!

            I am not worried about him being black,God created all the races, and God said it was good. I am concered about our country becoming a socialist nation,but hey we have allowed God to be taken out of this country, we get what we deserve, hey but wait around, you haven,t seen anything yet. New world order,you bet,it is coming, and not far in our future, even in the word of God it is written, by this president i don.,t know, God said if the people which are called by His name would humble themselves, and seek His face, it goes on to say that He would heal our land, but are we listening????

          • libertytrain

            We don’t have a black man as president, we have a half-white – half-black man as president.

          • ChuckL

            Sorry Billy, but what has appeared on the internet as Obama’s birth certificate is not a “Birth Certificate” but only a computer generated “certificate of Live Birth” these were available from Hawaii for anyone born anyplace whose claimed relative could have it issued, with an undocumented request or statement.

            As for Bill O’Reilly’s copies of the newspaper clippings, these could easily have been plants paid for from some of the over $1.7 million dollars Obama has spent to keep his records hidden from us. Or do you believe that these are actual photographs of the original newspapers rather than simply a computer printout.

            Then perhaps you should look at Obama’s destruction of our own Military defenses. He, and Dr. Robert Gates, Sec. of Defense have terminated the F-22 fighter.It was capable of over Mach 1.5 without afterburner, had a radar signature of 0.0001 Sq. Meters, carried 8 air to air missiles and could provide response within 10 minutes of over 70,000 Sq. miles. and at the time of its termination had a flyaway cost of only $120 to $140 million, depending on information source. This was replaced with the F-35, which can not fly supersonically without afterburner, has a radar signature of 0.001 Sq meters from the front and of 0.01 Sq Meters from the side or rear. The F-35 carries only 4 air to air missiles and within 10 minutes can provide response over only 31,000 Sq miles. To protect this area requires at least 4 F-35s for each F-22 that might have been dispatched to the alarm. Oh, Yes, the F-35 when it was designated the replacement had a nominal cost of only $40 million. It now has a cost of between $110, and $119 million dollars caused by “cost overruns”. I am sure that you have heard of those. In addition, while the F-22 has maneuver enhancing variable thrust capabiliity making it one of the most, if not the most maneuverable aircraft in the world, the F-35 could not maneuver with a 1960′s era F-4E. and has only 60% of the top speed.

            So many of you keep referring to the president as “black.” Why is that? True, he does not wish to identify with White People. How does the torturous treatment of his great grandfather during the Maumau rebellion in Africa influence his judgement? Do you believe he thinks that Whites equate with British? Do you believe he feels that Whites today are responsible for his grandfather’s treatment? Do you believe he thinks that “payback” has come and he’s going to administer it to Whites? Please share your views with me.

      • Shirley Elton

        I was born 63 yrs ago & my birth certificate looks a lot different than his.First of all,mine has a seal that makes it offical & true.His does not!Anyone can make a phony birth certificate minus these raised seals!Second,An opinion is a person’s right to make.Who do you think you are to call someone an idiot with your sarcastic IQ of what is true or not?You have a one track mindset of your superority to everone that does not agree with you.I hate to be the bearer of bad news but,i don’t agree to anything you have said here and,I think you are a moron!

      • Harold

        where is it then? can it be authenticated by a high court? why was so much money spent to cover so many documents?

  • cr747


    • Keith

      You’ve already disclosed who you are and what your intentions are. It’s perfectly clear. I admire your honesty. I wish more of you so called “right wingers” would be as honest as you are and quit trying to hide and just portray themselves as ordinary concened citizens. You have the right to join any organzation no matter how extreme or racist it might be. That’s the beauty of America.

  • Carlos


    Doesn’t the Constitution require that the president be 3rd generation natural born citizen? In other words, if I’m a naturalized legal citizen(which I’m)only my u.s. born grandchildren can become president? Is Obama 3rd generation u.s. born? If he’s not,what’s he doing as president? For those that do not understand. The reason why his birth certificate is so important is because “The U.S. Constitution” (The Law of this Great Land of ours)says it’s so, not Glenn Beck or anyone else. I recommend that those that have a problem with our inquiries, take time to read the constitution, which also gives us the right to free speech? Last I remember we are in the U.S. not in some communist or totalatarian country like Cuba, etc. where I came from. This has nothing to do with race, the president could be green or orange, but he’s not to be above the law. If He does not publicly release his birth certificate, he or anyone should not be suprised when his legitimacy is questioned. This government must remain a government by the people and for the people or this country is going to end up like Cuba or worst. I’m already starting to see some similitude between the changes Fidel Castro implemented and the ones Obama is trying to implement. We better be on guard and remind him that he’s supposed to work for us (the people). I wan’t to thank those that have made this website possible. Keep up the good work!

    God Bless America and Merry CHRISTmas!

  • Dan, Phoenix

    The Constitution requires “natural-born”. That means both parents must be US citizens. It does not mean the parents have to be born here, just hold US citizenship, which Obama’s father did not. The Obama campaign even questioned McCain’s true citizenship because he was born in Panama, which is still not part of the US, but his parents were US citizens, which makes him “natural born”. They did not persue this further in order to keep their secret safe.

    The only thing we can accomplish by shining light on the facts of this enigma, is to keep Obama from being eligible to run for a 2nd term. And forever our history it will show that “Once upon a time, American citizens were so angry at President George W. Bush and the Republican Party, they voted for a charlatan to become President of the USA.” I pray that we, and our future learns a huge lesson.

    • libertytrain

      I think this may help – both parents do not have to be natural born – the controversy is was he born in this country or not – that would determine the “rest of the story” based on the Constitutional Laws regarding the Presidency.

      “The 14th Amendment defines citizenship this way: “All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside.” But even this does not get specific enough. As usual, the Constitution provides the framework for the law, but it is the law that fills in the gaps.

      “Currently, Title 8 of the U.S. Code fills in those gaps. Section 1401 defines the following as people who are “citizens of the United States at birth:”

      * Anyone born inside the United States *
      * Any Indian or Eskimo born in the United States, provided being a citizen of the U.S. does not impair the person’s status as a citizen of the tribe
      * Any one born outside the United States, both of whose parents are citizens of the U.S., as long as one parent has lived in the U.S.
      * Any one born outside the United States, if one parent is a citizen and lived in the U.S. for at least one year and the other parent is a U.S. national
      * Any one born in a U.S. possession, if one parent is a citizen and lived in the U.S. for at least one year
      * Any one found in the U.S. under the age of five, whose parentage cannot be determined, as long as proof of non-citizenship is not provided by age 21
      * Any one born outside the United States, if one parent is an alien and as long as the other parent is a citizen of the U.S. who lived in the U.S. for at least five years (with military and diplomatic service included in this time)
      * A final, historical condition: a person born before 5/24/1934 of an alien father and a U.S. citizen mother who has lived in the U.S.

      * There is an exception in the law — the person must be “subject to the jurisdiction” of the United States. This would exempt the child of a diplomat, for example, from this provision.”

    • Joe Berger

      Hmm. That line ‘subject to the jurisdiction thereof’, might be a very critical line – but in a different way. Does an illegal alien ‘subject’ themself to the “jurisdiction” of the US when they cross the border in secrecy and bypass the legal immigration or visitation process? I say, “No they do NOT”, or they would cross legally and report themselves here. SO..if they are not ‘subject to the jurisdiction’ of the U.S., ANY CHILDREN OF THEIR BORN HERE are NOT legally US citizens. This effectively removes valid citizenship from millions of children of illegals who snuck in and had children, then used them to validate bringing in the rest of their families. What about this?

  • ChuckL

    Joe, I definitely agree with your analysis.

    I believe that we can count on Justice Sotomayor to disagree. But then again, we have also seen the Supreme Court get it wrong many times. The most obvious error was the “Eminent Domain” decision of a few years ago. I think most of is can understand that using “Eminent Domain” to steal property and then resell it for a profit and increased taxes is not “public use”.

  • LocalYokel

    All that are still waiting for court authorized discovery exposure of facts might as well learn patience considering that the candidate qualification process could be exposed to the same tsunami as the candidate. If altered qualification forms or forgery is discovered, the whole democratic party structure is at terminal risk. Continued lower court delays can be expected with obvious attempted higher court liberal stacking. With so many of the majority party elite involved the white house czars can use the delay time to sneak out the side door before the second Tsunami arrives. The back door route will undoubtedly be blocked with all the blame game bloggers trying to fill the vacuum created by the immigration invasion from elsewhere with fear of entitlement loss.

  • Harold

    It makes no difference whether he is black or white. the fact remains is is he truly a natural born citizen? if there is iron clad proof, let him be. if not, may God have mercy on us all

  • Harold

    So far, I have not seen any proof so why not display the truth so we can make legal opinion on whether its legal to have a foreign born person on a payroll and by the way, the money spent for Michelles vacation could be used to invest in US Savings bond to draw interest to pay down the trillion dollar debt which is mounting up day by day while I have to scrape up a living every day just to make my end meet?

  • dave

    Things are nowhere near as bad as this bunch are saying.
    It’s not going to get as bad as your predicting, it’s just scare tactics which are always used by any opposition. Go ahead and buy gold it’s economic futility. Value is a perceived reality that always changes. Beads for food, etc.
    My opinion is that the coprorations/companies of this and other countries are the problem as they control almost all transactions that happen and we should keep much more pressure on them. Greed IS the root of all evil.
