Is Barack Hussein Obama II Even a U.S. Citizen?

Obama's purported long form birth certificate indicates a foreign father. This precludes his eligibility as a "natural born citizen" meaning born on U.S. soil of U.S. citizen parents, as deduced directly from and required by Article 2, Section 1, of the Constitution. See the essay "Obama Is Not An Eligible Natural Born Citizen!" for the detailed logical proof.

Subsequently, as it is already known Obama is ineligible, the anomalies law enforcement investigators found with his purported long form birth certificate, which he posted on the White House website in April of 2011, his social security number and his selective service registration, all pertain more to whether or not Barack Hussein Obama II is even a United States citizen!

Obama's mother, Stanley Ann Dunham, born November 29, 1942, having married a foreigner with whom she spent time overseas, was not old enough to have "lived in the U.S. for ten years, including five after reaching age fourteen," when she gave birth to Obama on August 4, 1961, at the age of 18 years, 8 months and 6 days (excluding the end date). Obama's paternal grandmother said she witnessed his birth in Mombasa, the coastal capital city of the former British protectorate colony of what is now Kenya as of 1963.

The significance, relative to Obama also being ineligible for U.S. citizenship, is that by law, his mother was precluded from transmitting her U.S. citizenship to a foreign-born child, pursuant to U.S. Department of State residency requirements.

On March 1, 2012, Arizona law enforcement investigators headed by Sheriff Joe Arpaio, of Maricopa County, in response to citizen's concerns of vote fraud by Obama, announced that after a six month preliminary investigation they had found "probable cause" and released evidence leading them to believe that Obama's birth certificate is fraudulent. They are continuing their investigation of anomalies with Obama's birth certificate, social security number and selective service registration.


"Upon close examination of the evidence, it is my belief that forgery and fraud was likely committed in key identity documents including President Obama’s long-form birth certificate, his Selective Service Registration card, and his Social Security number." - AZ Sheriff Arpaio

Despite Obama releasing his purported birth certificate and in spite of past inconsistencies and contradictions by Hawaii officials, Hawaii still cites privacy laws to forbid outside access, whether compelled by a subpoena or at the request of law enforcement, to the original paper and microfiche records.

In 1961 HI accepted unverified parental declarations of birth location when registering unattended births (births not occurring in a hospital), even beyond a year old. Being a new state as of 1959, HI law pertaining to vital records was very lax in comparison to the 49 other states with well established less casual procedures. Under HI law at the time, residents who could prove HI was their home state at least a year before an unattended birth, whether that child was born in HI or brought to HI, could with no state verification of birth location, simply request and receive a birth certificate for the child. Even adults could do this for themselves.

Bad Hawaii Law [§338-17.8] Certificates for children born out of State.

(a) Upon application of an adult or the legal parents of a minor child, the director of health shall issue a birth certificate for such adult or minor, provided that proof has been submitted to the director of health that the legal parents of such individual while living without the Territory or State of Hawaii had declared the Territory or State of Hawaii as their legal residence for at least one year immediately preceding the birth or adoption of such child.

Obviously the fatally flawed procedures forgoing state verification of actual birth location, as absurdly permitted in 1961 when Obama was allegedly born in Hawaii, completely compromises the integrity of Hawaiian "birth records." The HI Department of Health can not be certain where or when someone was actually born, without a hospital record. Despite these factual inadequacies, the DOH still erroneously and egregiously asserts that a Hawaiian short form "Certification of Live Birth" or COLB, should suffice as valid proof that Obama was born in Hawaii and by extension, the United States!

Dr. Chiyome Fukino, the former director of Hawaii's Department of Health in 2008, made public statements attesting to the validity of Obama's birth records, allegedly on file with the HI DOH, that in light of Obama releasing his purported birth certificate, are clearly untrue!

In a NBC report on 4/11/2011, entitled "Ex-Hawaii official denounces 'ludicrous' birther claims" NBC reports Fukino saying that,

"she wanted to inspect the files — and did so, taking with her the state official in charge of vital records. She found the original birth record, properly numbered, half typed and half handwritten, and signed by the doctor who delivered Obama, located in the files." (Emphasis added)

Clearly the purported long form birth certificate release by the White House is not "half typed and half handwritten" as is plain for anyone to see. With the exception of two date boxes near the signatures, it is typed, not handwritten.

Fukino is further quoted by NBC as having said:

"No matter what state officials release on the issue, the "birthers" are going to question it," and "They’re going to question the ink on which it was written or say it was fabricated," and "The whole thing is silly."

Using the derogatory term "birther" particularly as a public servant, when referring to citizens legitimately inquiring about Obama's known ineligibility or whether or not he is even a U.S. citizen, speaks volumes about Fukino's dismissive disrespectful attitude toward the public and perhaps the Constitution, which she is sworn to uphold.

The term "bither" is often used by ideologues primarily concerned with advancing a political agenda. It is intended to cast ridicule upon an opponent and thereby censor or stifle debate on a topic, as proffered by the liberal handbook for progressive socialists and communists, 'Rules For Radicals' by Saul Alinsky. In fact the term birther, is thought to have been coined by Hillary Clinton who wrote her dissertation on Alinsky.

The more correct and polite term one would expect any public servant or the media to use is constitutionalist, but I digress.

NBC also reported that Fukino repeatedly emphasized:

"... the shorter, computer generated "certification of live birth" ... is the standard document that anybody requesting their birth certificate from the state of Hawaii would receive from the health department."

Joshua Wisch, a spokesman for the Hawaii attorney general's office at the time of the report also confirmed:

"state law does not in fact permit the release of "vital records," including an original "record of live birth" — even to the individual whose birth it records." The NBC report further quotes him as having said, "It's a Department of Health record and it can't be released to anybody," and "Nor do state laws have any provision that authorizes such records to be photocopied." and finally, "If Obama wanted to personally visit the state health department, he would be permitted to inspect his birth record."

The contention by Fukino regarding the short form COLB, is further expounded upon by Wisch:

"if he or anybody else wanted a copy of their birth records, they would be told to fill out the appropriate state form and receive back the same computer generated "certification of live birth" form that everybody else gets ... ."
So according to Fukino and Wisch, only the computer generated short form "certification of live birth" or COLB, is ever provided to anyone. While Obama could inspect his "birth record" in person, by law, under no circumstances would the original "birth record" ever be released or photocopied.

If Fukino and Wisch are being truthful, then how did Obama legally acquire the alleged photocopied duplicate of what he purports to be his original Hawaiian long form birth certificate?

Hawaii Governor Neil Abercrombie also made some statements regarding the "birth record" that HI Department of Health (DOH) insists is on file, but which contradict the graphic image that Obama purports to be a photocopy of his long form birth certificate allegedly obtained from the DOH in Hawaii.

On June 18, 2012, a reporter from the Honolulu Star Advertiser asked Abercrombie, "You stirred up quite a controversy with your comments regarding birthers and your plans to release more information regarding President Barack Obama's birth certificate. How is that coming?"

Abercrombie replied,

"... it has a political implication for 2012 that we simply cannot have." The article also states "(Abercrombie said there is a recording of the birth in the State Archives and he wants to use that.)." Apparently Abercrombie was unable to locate Obama's long form birth certificate. Despite the Governor's determination, his investigation resulted only in locating a recording that is written down. "It was actually written I am told, this is what our investigation is showing, it actually exists in the archives, written down ..."

Abercrombie had earlier declared that as the new governor of Hawaii, he wanted to release Obama's records to help resolve the controversy. After being unable to find a birth certificate for Obama but instead only finding something "written down" he later abandoned his investigation and explained he changed his mind about releasing Obama's birth record claimed to be on file with the DOH, because the HI attorney general's office had informed him that state privacy laws prohibit the public release of Obama's or anyone else's birth records.

The Los Angeles Times ran an article entitled, "For Hawaii governor, discrediting anti-Obama 'birthers' is a top priority" on 12/24/2010, reporting that, Abercrombie claims to have known Obama's parents when Obama was born in 1961,

"and he has been aggravated by the so-called birther movement, which alleges Obama was not born in the United States and thus should be expelled from office." Furthermore as the newly elected governor, "torpedoing the conspiracy theorists was a priority." He reinforced this by saying "What bothers me is that some people who should know better are trying to use this for political reasons."

The article serves as a prime example of how the media is purposefully diverting public attention away from Obama's known Article 2, Section 1, ineligibility, by shifting the focus to his unproven birth location and propagating the lie that Obama's eligibility devolves solely on being a U.S. citizen. The actual truth being hidden from the American public by the media's propaganda narrative is that Obama never was eligible because he is not a "natural born citizen" as required by the Constitution. Rather than reporting the truth as ethical journalists once worthy of 1st amendment protections should, the media instead derisively labels civic minded vigilant constitutionalists as "Birthers" irrationally "wanting Obama removed from office." The birth certificate anomalies actually question whether Obama should be impeached or more properly deposed from office and deported for being an illegal alien! Should justice prevail, the usurper will be charged and convicted of "High Crimes" excluding treason, which is only applicable to citizens.

As Governor, Abercrombie seems intent on playing a role in that narrative.His claim of knowing the Obama family when Obama was born turns out to be false for several reasons.

First and foremost the entire notion of the "Obama family" appears fabricated. Obama's parents didn't live together at the address listed on the birth certificate and the newspaper birth announcement. The home at 6085 Kalanianole, was shared by Obama's maternal grandparents and another family by the name of Pratt. An Obama biographer, David Maraniss, admits in his new book, “Barack Obama: The Story,” that the Pratt daughter “has no memory of the Dunhams’ daughter bringing an infant home.”

Maraniss also writes “In the college life of Barack Obama in 1961 and 1962,” referring to Obama's father, “as recounted by his friends and acquaintances in Honolulu, there was no Ann; there was no baby.” He further writes that Kiri Tith, a student from Cambodia and close college friend of Obama Sr., also independently knew Stanley Ann Dunham, “But he had no idea that Ann knew Obama, let alone got hapai (pregnant) by him, married him, and had a son with him.”

Abercrombie may have unintentionally partly told the truth when he also said, "Maybe I'm the only one in the country that could look you right in the eye right now and tell you, 'I was here when that baby was born.' " Indeed it seems no one else can. The American Thinker, February 27, 2012, in a article by Jack Cashill entitled,"Will Obama Silence Blundering Abercrombie?" (January 3, 2011), reports Abercrombie prevaricated on his earlier statement, "A few days later, Abercrombie clarified to Mark Niesse of the Associated Press that he didn't exactly see Obama's parents with their newborn son at the hospital, but that he "remembers seeing Obama as a child with his parents at social events."

However even this seems unlikely as WND reports in an article by Jack Cashill entitled,"Biographer admits: There was no Obama family" (6/19/2012), that Obama's mother was in Seattle Washington attending college only a few weeks after Obama was allegedly born in Hawaii.

The overly touted birth announcement appearing in local Hawaii newspapers is completely insignificant. All it means is that the birth information reported to the state by the person requesting a COLB for an unattended birth, was then provided to the newspapers by the State DOH as standard operating procedure for routine inclusion in the newspaper. Because HI law at the time permitted a COLB to be issued for children born elsewhere and later brought to HI, the newspaper announcement is immaterial to the issue of Obama’s birth location.

Again it is interesting to note that Obama’s parents never lived at that address together, if anywhere at all as husband and wife. Perhaps this fact played a part in the senior Obama being denied a visa extension by the I.N.S. and being required to return to his homeland of what is now Kenya. And where years later Michelle Obama would describe in a startling speech as "Barack's homeland" too.

Tim Adams, Former Hawaii "Senior Elections Clerk" has signed an affidavit swearing:

"Senior officers in the City and County of Honolulu Elections Division told me on multiple occasions that no Hawaii long-form, hospital-generated birth certificate existed for Senator Obama in the Hawaii Department of Health," Adams' affidavit reads, "and there was no record that any such document had ever been on file in the Hawaii Department of Health or any other branch or department of the Hawaii government."

Rather than allow comparison of what Obama released with what HI claims to have on file, by an outside independent forensic authority, HI instead avoids authenticating what the actual source material is, for any specific alleged Obama birth document. The standard reply is anyone requesting a copy of their birth records will receive the mandatory computer generated short form "Certification of Live Birth" or COLB. Hawaii asserts that this suffices for an official Hawaiian birth certificate. By law Hawaii cannot not release either the original or a copy of the long form "Certificate of Live Birth."

Those who claim that allowing outside independent forensic authentication of the original paper or microfiche film used as a source for the short form COLB, will resolve the issue of Obama's eligibility, are misinformed and mistaken. Any such claim is completely untrue. Source material suitable for generating a COLB, is not definitive as it does not rule out registration of an unattended foreign birth. If however the source material indicated the reported birth location was other than Hawaii but not specifically within the U.S., as is possible though unlikely, it would of course rule out both U.S. citizenship and eligibility at once.

Only the original verifiable source information relative to a physician attended hospital birth used to generate a long form "Certificate of Live Birth" signed by the attending physician, replete with the hospital details and an authentic seal, would constitute proof of birth in Hawaii.

This would in no way resolve the eligibility issue as it only relates to U.S. citizenship. It does not prove U.S. natural born citizenship, as required by Article 2, Section 1, of the Constitution.

Unless U.S. born, Obama's citizenship would follow that of his father. Without a valid visa or having become a naturalized citizen, by law Obama is an illegal immigrant subject to deportation! Perhaps that explains why he enjoyed voting "present" so often as an ineffectual Illinois state Senator.

Therefore not being a natural born citizen, it is known with absolute certainty based on definitive conclusions deduced directly from the U.S. Constitution, that the individual commonly regarded among various aliases as Barack Obama, being ineligible primarily for failing to be a natural born citizen, has in fact usurped the Office of the President of the United States of America! He should not be allowed to remain in office, but instead should be immediately deposed from office and along with his accomplices, prosecuted according to the rule of law.
