Like It Or Not Barack Obama Is A Citizen

by D. E. Carson (writer), , March 03, 2009


But who the hell is Barry Soetoro?

There are those who absolutely refuse to accept Barack Obama as president under any circumstances.  Case in point, there are those still at large complaining that Barack Obama may not be eligible under the Constitution because he has not produced a birth certificate proving that he was, in fact, born in Hawaii.  While it may be true that he has not produced a legal birth certificate, under Title 8 U.S.C. Ch 12, Subtitle III , Part I Section1401, Barack Obama is a natural-born citizen of the United States because he was, “born outside the geographical limits of the United States and its outlying possessions of parents one of whom is an alien, and the other a citizen of the United States who, prior to the birth of such person, was physically present in the United States or its outlying possessions for a period or periods totaling not less than five years, at least two of which were after attaining the age of fourteen years”.  Obama’s mother was born and raised in Kansas.  You can’t get much more American citizen than that and under that clause in Title 8 Sec 1401, Obama is like it or not eligible to serve as president of the United States.

Obama has not however, ever produced a legal birth certificate.  The only document ever produced is called a “Certificate of Live Birth” which is not a legal and binding document because it does not: 1) identify the exact location of the birth such as a hospital or clinic and 2) contain the signature of the doctor present at delivery.  Any document labeled as a “Certificate of Live Birth” is not considered valid because they are not accepted when applying for a U. S. Passport or other government issued identification.  Argue semantics all you want, but try to get a driver’s license with a “Certificate of Live Birth” and see how far you get.  Finally, if the document that has been floated around the Internet is a true and exact copy of Obama’s Birth Certificate, then why is the document number redacted?  It certainly does leave a cloud of suspicion and has served only to fan the flames of conspiracy theorists around the country – especially those who do not like Obama.  Why not just produce the actual Birth Certificate and call it a day?  What’s so hard about that?  Unless Obama is trying to hide something else that could be embarrassing to him…

Like perhaps that he was known by another name?

A photograph (shown above) surfaced last year taken of a student registration card from Indonesia's Fransiskus Assisi School, a Catholic institution showing that Barack Hussein Obama II was known in Indonesia as Barry Soetoro.  Soetoro is Obama’s step-father’s name.  The registration card also lists young Obama as a Muslim and a citizen of Indonesia.

Now Carson’s Corner is not calling Obama’s religious background into question – at least not yet because he’s given no reason to, nor is Obama’s U.S. Citizenship being called into question – as he never renounced it, however what this does call into question is Obama’s integrity.  He has claimed on numerous forms – such as his admission application to Occidental College in Los Angeles, CA – that he was never known by any other name.

Again, is this an attempt to hide something about himself that could cause a great deal of heartburn when he least needs it?  Again the question is asked, why not just come clean from the beginning?  What would have been so hard about telling the truth from the jump and avoid having all of these extra little things bouncing around the blogosphere (who the hell came up with that word?).

Carson’s Corner is not trying to undermine Obama or dig up something to get him thrown out of office based on his past.  Quite the contrary, Carson’s Corner is trying to get people like radio talk show host G. Gordon Liddy to let go of the petty things that were never plausible reasons for keeping Obama from being elected and let’s focus on the damage he is actually doing now that he is president and should that damage prove to be at the level of high crimes and misdemeanors, then we need to impeach him and have him removed from office for those kinds of offenses – not trumped up charges that he wasn’t Constitutionally eligible to be president.

Well hello there Category Five.  I thought perhaps you had fallen off the planet.

I also did some checking (including your same sources), and the fact remains that the document presented is *NOT* official for obtaining such items as a passport or other government-issued identification.  Sorry, but when asked the State Department actually replied that the official Birth Certificate containing the official state seal is the only accepted document and the one that the Obama campaign presented is not acceptable because it does not have the seal.  I know this because I applied for a passport and was told that the document has to be an actual birth certificate with the state seal (meaning I have to go back to the state where I was born -- which thankfully isn't California -- and get a real birth certificate).  And since Obama's doesn't have a raised seal it is not official.

Actually, it is the left who is trading in distortions at this point.  Obama is a snake oil salesman using his own distortions to create fear-based support for his socialist programs.  I mean where the hell did he get his most recent statistic that someone files for bankruptcy every 30 seconds?  I can't even find that in the Obama Press Office (aka ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN and MSNBC).  When his dorky spokesman was asked about that particular statistic, he said, "I don't want to deal in statistics."  TRANSLATION: We don't really have that stat, we just made it up and we're going to dodge any challenges to it because challenges don't perpetuate the lie we are feeding the people.

This isn't a distortion, it's what happened.  I'm just telling what I saw.  Something you need to try sometime instead of relying on left-wing, liberal propaganda sites.

Category Five said: All this would have been avoided if you stopped listining to just right-wing talk radio and actually fact checked your work.

Now if he'll just pull his head out of his ass, go back and re-read my article, he would see that I said: "Carson’s Corner is trying to get people like radio talk show host G. Gordon Liddy to let go of the petty things that were never plausible reasons for keeping Obama from being elected".

And by all of that I meant that I don't give a flying rat's ass if Obama's so-called certificate of birth is legit or not, he's a citizen by virture of USC Title 8 Sec 1401 - having been born to an American citizen and since it was Obama's mother who was the citizen, that pretty much seals the deal.

As far as the letigimacy of the document that has been submitted, it is NOT legal, never has been, never will be and Cat Five, can go take a flying leap.

As for the bankruptcy bullshit, it's all wrong as well.  NO ONE has ever found statistics that prove bankruptcies are files every 30 seconds.  I can find just as many propaganda sites as you deano.  So KNOCK IT OFF!

Furthermore, Dean we are never going to agree, so why don't you stop bullshitting your way through my articles?
