The Reckoning: This Single Report Could Sink Obama's Presidency

The reckoning: This single report could sink Obama's presidency


There have been billboards, posters, questions at White House press briefings, "jokes" about it by the mainstream media and a ton of lawsuits and other challenges – including several pending.

But, come on, is there really the possibility that Barack Obama doesn't meet the requirements of the U.S. Constitution to occupy the hallowed Oval Office?

That question and many others surrounding the constitutional issue of presidential eligibility are addressed in a new, free special report by WND.

"The citizens of the United States have a right to know if their president is constitutionally eligible to hold the office," says the report, now available from WND.
"Obama's hospital of birth, birth documents, passport and Social Security number are all in question, and his legal defense never addresses the merits of the eligibility challenges. Instead, Obama relies on procedural objections and compliant judges to get the cases thrown out of court," says the report.
"President Obama could quickly and easily resolve the issue by releasing his personal historical documents to authenticate his claims," it concludes.

So why hasn't he?

The dispute over Obama's eligibility arose even before the 2008 election. Several legal challenges questioned just exactly who is supposed to make sure that a political party's candidate – no matter how charismatic – actually qualifies.

WND has reported on the multitude of cases and continues to report on pending disputes.

The report suggests the issue will have to be resolved in a public fashion sooner or later.

"Despite a virtual blackout by the mainstream media, Obama's eligibility troubles have spread across America, and public opinion has gradually turned against the president. … More than a dozen U.S. House Republicans co-sponsored a bill … [to] require presidential candidates to prove their eligibility by providing a copy of their birth certificates," the report says.

Similar moves are developing at the state level. And a recent poll showed only 4 in 10 Americans believed Obama's own explanation of his birth and growing up years.

On the legal front is the dramatic case of Lt. Col. Terrence Lakin, who challenged Obama's eligibility as an Army officer and could face prison for his decision. The goal of his case, like others, is to reach the level of discovery, so that Obama's documentation becomes public.

Another pending case by attorney Mario Apuzzo alleges Congress failed its constitutional duties to make sure the president is qualified. Other cases in the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals had asked that the California Electoral College votes for Obama be thrown out.

The report includes:

* An explanation of how the issue developed around Article II, Section 1 of the Constitution, which states, "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."

* A review of the possible scenarios regarding Obama's birth, including his father's status as a British subject at the time of his birth and British law calling for Obama to be governed by that nation's provisions at the time.

* A discussion of "natural born citizen."

* An explanation of Obama's "Certification of Live Birth" posted on the Internet and how it falls short of providing proof.

* What those Honolulu Star-Bulletin and Honolulu Advertiser "announcements" about Obama's birth in 1961 really mean.

* Why has no doctor or hospital come forward to speak of Obama's birth?

* Should state officials who claim to have "seen" Obama's "original birth certificate" be believed?

* What about those African newspapers that during his campaign called Obama "Kenyan-born?"

* Were they "slips of the tongue" when Michelle Obama called Kenya the land of her husband?

Obama's "official account of his identity and background is riddled with inaccuracy and unanswered questions," the report says. "Even Obama's Social Security number may very well be fraudulent. He has literally spent a fortune in legal efforts to avoid producing the documents that would verify his eligibility."

Lending credibility to the concerns being raised is the intense war fought by attorneys trying to keep information about Obama secret. Besides his original birth certificate, still concealed are his kindergarten records, Punahou School records, Occidental College records, Columbia University records, Columbia thesis, Harvard Law School records, Harvard Law Review articles, scholarly articles from the University of Chicago, passport, medical records, client list from his time in private practice, files from his years as an Illinois state senator, Illinois State Bar Association records, his baptism records and his adoption records.

The report notes Obama "has gone to great efforts to sell the public on his own version of his life, but his story has been inconsistent. For example, according to Illinois state filings, when Obama registered as an attorney in 1991, he stated he did not have any former names. In fact, he had been known for several years as Barry Soetoro."

Just the facts that are not in dispute would create issues, the report notes:

"Assuming Obama's parents were Barack Obama Sr., a British subject of Kenyan origin, and Stanley Ann Dunham, an eighteen-year-old American woman, neither of his parents were qualified to transmit U.S. citizenship to him. Barack Obama Sr.'s foreign allegiance disqualified Dunham's mother from conferring U.S. citizenship under the law prevailing at the time. The law required any U.S. citizen having a child with a non-citizen to have been physically present in the United States for at least five years after the age of sixteen to automatically transmit American citizenship. Because neither parent could confer American citizenship to their son, Obama can only be a U.S. citizen if he were actually born in the United States."

It documents how at the time of the Constitution's writing, "natural born citizen" was understood to mean a person whose parents were both American citizens.

So has Obama proved he was born in the U.S?

Wild Thing's comment.......

It makes sense he is not revealing the truth, he is doing all he can to ruin us..I can’t believe this was not done before the election.

Obama is sinking fast these days. No one left to lie to. The country is sinking as fast as he is. God save us from this Muslim president.

Something is wrong for B. Hussein Obama to hide his birth certificate. He holds the most important job in the country and he refuses to provide the simple proof that he meets the qualifications. I would bet Soros knows every detail about Obama, every dotted i and t crossed about him.

He dodged the qualifications in 2008. He will not do so again. Democrats are faced with a dilemma. Dump him or lose.

....Thank you Mark for sending this to me.

I don't know if there will be any success in seeing obama's records. Bill Clinton kept his medical records secret and John Kerry kept his military record secret. Democrats can get by with almost anything.

A follow up thought about Obama's comment that "they talk about me like a dog", Jimi Hendrix style.

James Marshall "Jimi" Hendrix grew up quite poor, went through the military (albeit not honorably), was initially treated “like a dog” in the music business, and would have never gotten to where he did without his talent. When Chas Chandler of the Animals offered him a break, he made the most of it, and achieved success way beyond anyone’s expectations. Jimi did it, and he did it entirely on his own. His druggie death was tragic and unnecessary, but then again, there are countless such stories away from the spotlight. He blew it and paid the price – himself.

To quote a song lyric from the great guitar genius himself:

“I’m the one that’s gonna have to die when it’s time for me to die / So let me live my life / the way I want to…”

Contrast his life with Mr. Obama’s: A preppy third world wannabe and Affirmative Action poseur who by all accounts loved to give the impression that he was scholarly and engaged by namedropping authors like Fritz Fanon and Edward Said, both of whom Obama has cited as influences. (That crap alone should have been reason to drum him out of American politics--why not just admit he likes the drivel of Noam "Khmer Rouge" Chumpsky while he's at it?)

The respected Thomas Lipscomb contends he didn’t write either of his books.

Tom thanks for that, your right. I can't think of any republican that has done this. Only democrats do it and so far get away with it. grrrrrr

Curmudgeon, thanks for that about Jimi Hendrix.

This is why it is important to follow the down ticket races.
It is impossible to get enough Senators elected to impeach Obama before the 2012 election but every State Secretary of State has standing to demand Obama's birth certificate before putting his name on the ballot for 2012.
