Factions have congregated among the Right:
- Those asking that Barack Hussein (Barry Soetoro) Obama substantiate his alleged “natural born” birth as a U.S. citizen inorder to qualify for the U.S. Presidency to qualify for the Presidency as per our U.S. Constitutional requirements; and,
- Those who ridicule the questions asked of Barack Hussein (Barry Soetoro), including denigrating those raising these questions.
BUT THIS is the best comprehensive discussion I have yet to read about these questions:
(Several excellent comments and links added in the discussion of that article on Free Republic, here.)
And, this is the most dismissive and unpolished, inexact dismissal I have yet to read about these questions — I note, also, that the denigration is as to those asking these questions and not about the issues raised in those questions beyond an irritated impatience by the writer:
Since Barack Hussein Obama (so he alleges — his name was legally established as “Barry Soetoro” in a Hawaiian court of law when he was adopted by a Mr. Soetoro in Indonesia after that man married Barack/Barry’s mother, and, whatever his birth name was, has never been proven so it could be “Barack Hussein Obama,” or it could be “Barry Dunham” or “Barry Mohammed Dunham” or any other range of possible names.
Also, there is no legal proof that Barry Soetoro ever changed his name to anything else, so, wherever the identity of “Barack Hussein Obama” originated, that has never been proven, either, other than a man using that name appeared in his late ‘teens and we see him today, supposedly, as “President-Elect”.
He just may have adopted the name and used it persistently over time and by that process, “become Barack Hussein Obama” — legal by way of use over time but certainly not substantiated by anything other than whim and fancy. I venture to question as to whether he also “became” a member of our U.S. citizenry by adopting the place to his use and over time become integrated to the United States after returning as an Indonesian citizen to Hawaii. Use the place, fit in well enough and over time, no one asks. Because of this, there is even question as to Barry/Barack’s U.S. citizenship, also (refer to that first link, above).
Because once he was adopted by his Indonesian stepfather, and resided there and attended a private school in Indonesia (Indonesia does not allow dual-citizenship, and, one must be an Indonsian citizen to attend an Indonesian school), he would no longer be a U.S. citizen by birth or otherwise UNLESS he returned at some future time and applied for “NATURALIZED” citizenship (either or both would render him ineligible for the Presidency), and that is not something that’s ever been legally substantiated, either.
So his U.S. citizenship also remains unproven beyond Obama’s-generated heresay about that. His grandmother in Kenya, the Kenyan Ambassador boasts about where Obama was born in Kenya — describes honoarium momentos about that in place in Kenya — a nurse in Kenya describes witnessing Obama’s birth there.
There is also the issue of Barry’s/Barack’s father from Kenya having been a British citizen, a resident of Kenya, and by that, Barack, his son, also being a British citizen for several years of his earlier life (which would have been concluded by him becoming a citizen of Indonesia when adopted by Mr. Soetoro in Indonesia). Barack lied about never having dual citizenship (or any other) and only admitted (again, on his website) that he’d been a British citizen when it was proven that that had been the case. What else has Barry/Barack lied about?
It’s non-productive to see these very important issues denigrating for both the issues raised (who is “Barrack Hussein Obama,” where was he born, when, to whom and who were the witnesses, at what location/hospital, and, what verifiable numbers are associated with his birth documentation from wherever he was born), as it is also unreasonable for some to conclusively assume that by raising these as-yet unanswered questions, people are “fringe” or of the “conspiracy theory” types — because I’ve yet to hear any “conspiracy theory” suggestions as to these questions by those of us who raise them, and, the questions are serious of the most grave sort in reference to the office that this man — Barry/Barack — is leaning in on using.
Our Constitution is our essence as a nation; when we disregard it, when we attempt to work around it or rewrite it to accommodate our actions, rather than accommodate our actions in respect of the Constitution, we act outside the nation as opposing interests to what the United States of America is all about: our rule of law. And our rule of law is our Constitution.
All Barry Soetoro/Barack Hussein Obama would have to do is provide an original Birth Certificate with verifiable witnesses associated with that, whether they be deceased witnesses or documents related. He has not done that. Soetoro/Obama has spent nearly a million dollars in legal fees batting-away questions that asked him to substantiate his identity (he hasn’t done that, he’s just legally side-stepped or silenced the questions by procedural competition); he’s already been legally challenged in Illinois for lying on his application for a law license, when he claimed on that application that he’d never had any other identity than “Barack Obama,” and the lawsuit he had to answer to for that violation was based on the fact that he’s legally documentable as being “Barry Soetoro” in years earlier than the application was filed.
It does appear that Barry Soetoro/Barack Hussein Obama has gone to great lengths all of his life to change his identity, his self-descriptions, the facts and definitions of who he is and moreso, more than an average person growing up in changing environments. Even the books he alleges that he wrote (also questioned — it’s been postulated based upon the writing styles of both that Bill Ayers ghost-wrote Barry’s/Barack’s second book) contain much information he has later had to admit when questions persisted, were not the truth, were exaggerations if not outright falsehoods.
Now this individual wants to be the President of the United States of America, he’s asking to manage our national security and command our armed forces and so much more. It is not unreasonable nor unusual that conscientious citizens would require — ask, politely or formally or both, as has been the case — that this individual (if not all individuals) who seeks the Presidency, provide conclusive proof of who he is, where he was born, when, to whom and to provide corroborating documentation to substantiate any “absent information” in that line of information.
Denigrating the questions is denigrating our nation’s heart and soul. These are no more “fringe” or irrational inquiries than it is fringe or irrational to require any one of us to sign contracts with (legal) proof of identity and such inorder to purchase homes, guns, automobiles, qualify for and obtain licenses, rent an apartment, marry someone, gain employment, pay taxes, enroll in almost all colleges or universities, the simple, basic events of a lifetime, all of these require proof of identity beyond a reasonable doubt and certainly all of these events would involve substantial rejection if or as one was found to have presented a forged image file as basis to prove anything.
It behooves no one among our U.S. citizenry to reduce these measurable issues to mere “proofer” “fringe” category. No court has yet to conclude who Obama actually is and challenges (so far) to these issues (one and all in various combinations per different lawsuits brought against Barry/Barack) have never been DISproven, they’ve simply been released from consideration based upon procedural issues.
And, mainstream media — being dutifully in service to the sliding scales of reality that service the Democrats’ political lust — won’t touch this issue with exceptions only in regional papers and individual authors. But the individual authors concerned about these questions continues to mount, and perhaps our government can be relied upon by slim margin to actually make a requirement of a man before they give him the keys to that big white house in D.C.
