Quote of the Day:
“No one has ever asked to see my birth certificate. They know this is the place I was born.” …Mitt Romney
Of course the whiner-in-Chief and Obama’s non-stop 2012 campaign team of fear and smear immediately jumped on Romney’s comments in full Alinsky-style… (blame everyone else for doing what your doing to take the focus off you) blah, blah, blah… Hello, it was a joke! Good for Romney! Even the serious Charles Krauthammer agreed that it was a joke and Obama’s reaction was over the top, especially with his team’s attack record! Everyone I know laughed or said, “Yeah Romney, it is about time!”
Romney goes ‘birther’ on Obama
Mitt cracks joke about his personal papers (See video)
(WND) Campaigning today in the state of his birth, Michigan, Mitt Romney joked about the birth certificate issue that has dogged Barack Obama, drawing an immediate sharp attack from the Obama campaign.
“I love being home, in this place where Ann and I were raised, where both of us were born,” said Romney, who was sporting an open-collar white shirt with his sleeves rolled up as his wife and running mate, Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., stood nearby.
“Ann was born in Henry Ford Hospital; I was born in Harper Hospital. No one’s ever asked to see my birth certificate; they know that this is the place that we were born and raised,” Romney quipped.
His comments at the Long Family Orchard, Farm & Cider Mill in Commerce Township, Mich., were in the first three minutes of a speech in a 45-minute campaign event recorded in its entirety by C-Span.
In response, the Obama campaign shot back just a couple of hours later with a post on the president’s Facebook page:
Mitt Romney directly enlisted himself in the birther movement this morning: “No one has ever asked to see my birth certificate. They know this is the place I was born.” Get the President’s back. Stand with him in this election against false, divisive charges.
The Obama campaign posted the response with a photo of Obama at a podium, squinting in the sun, wearing a white shirt with a blue tie, his sleeves also rolled up his forearms.
Within an hour, the Obama response received more than 3,000 mostly supportive comments and more than 26,000 “like it” endorsements.
When Romney released his birth certificate in May, media raised the question of his eligibility, because his father, Gov. George Romney, was born in Mexico. WND reported Mitt Romney’s parents were U.S. citizens when Romney was born in Detroit, making him a “natural born citizen” under Article 2, Section 1 of the Constitution.
‘The toxic issue’
Within hours of Romney’s comments today, the Washington Post published an Obama-friendly account of the event, reporting Romney “injected the toxic issue of birtherism into an already bitter presidential race at an unhelpful time for the presumptive Republican nominee.”
The Post further noted the Obama campaign “seized on the remark to argue that Romney was embracing ‘strident’ conservatives, including real estate mogul Donald Trump and Arizona sheriff Joe Arpaio and Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, two of the most hard-line opponents to illegal immigration.”
The newspaper also published Obama campaign spokesman Ben LaBolt’s statement: “Throughout this campaign, Governor Romney has embraced the most strident voices in his party instead of standing up for them. Governor Romney’s decision to directly enlist himself in the birther movement should give pause to any rational voter around America.”
Obama campaign Facebook response to Mitt Romney’s comment about the birth certificate controversy
CBS News reported Romney campaign aide Kevin Madden sent an email to reporters saying the candidate was “only referencing that Michigan, where he is campaigning today, is the state where he himself was born and raised.”
Madden insisted Romney had not intended the comment as an attack on Obama.
“The governor has always said, and has repeatedly said, he believes the president was born here in the United States,” Madden wrote.
Rush comes to Mitt’s defense
The Hill weighed in, reporting Obama campaign traveling press secretary Jen Psaki jumped on Romney’s comment, denouncing a “pattern” of comments by the Republican challenger.
“This is the kind of gutterball politics that will and should turn the American people off,” Psaki told MSNBC, as reported by The Hill. “Mitt Romney has questioned repeatedly over the last several months whether the president understands America, whether he understands freedom – he’s wrapped his arms around Donald Trump, one of the originators of the birther movement, so we’ve seen a pattern here.”
The Hill further reported MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell asked Psaki how Romney’s comments differed in substance from a recent quip by Obama on a now infamous incident in which Romney strapped the family dog to the roof of his car.
Psaki defended Obama’s comment as a “light moment in a longer speech about the wind energy tax credit and how important that is for jobs,” not explaining how it differed in tone or nature from Romney’s comment.
Talk-radio host Rush Limbaugh had a question for Psaki on his top-rated show today.
“I thought this birth-certificate thing was a win-win for you guys because only kooks and idiots and extremists believe the birth certificate is a forgery. If that’s the case, why wouldn’t you want people to be making jokes about it?”
“So, what’s the deal,” Limbaugh continued. “Why are they so sensitive about this? There is only one real possibility: that Obama is such a narcissist, that you don’t dare criticize him.”
As WND reported, Arizona Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s law enforcement investigation into Obama’s eligibility has concluded that the long-form birth certificate posted on the White House website April 27, 2011, is a computer-generated forgery.
Obama has refused requests to give the Hawaii Department of Health permission to make whatever original 1961 birth records it may have available for public view or inspection by court-certified forensic examiners.
Perhaps this is why they are so touchy?? The truth is beginning to leak out and more people are beginning to wake-up!
Occidental College Transcripts Provides Concrete Evidence to Annul Obama Presidency
Cross-Posted by PCCorruption, Latest news, U.S., World news – Saturday, June 18th, 2011
Registration transcript states: Name: Barry Soetoro – Religion: Islam – Nationality: Indonesian – Wake up people…
The smoking gun evidence that annuls Obama’s presidency is Obama’s college transcripts regarding his application for and receiving of foreign student aid. Obama’s college transcripts from Occidental College 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 from Occidental College shows that Obama (Barry Soetoro) applied for financial aid and was awarded a fellowship (scholarship) for foreign students from the Fulbright Foundation Scholarship program – an international educational exchange program sponsored by the U.S. government. Grants are available for U.S. citizens to go abroad and for non-U.S. citizens with no U.S. permanent residence to come to the U.S. To qualify, for the non-US citizen scholarship to study in the U.S., a student applicant must claim and provide proof of foreign citizenship. This document would seem to provide the smoking gun that many of Obama’s detractors have been seeking. The United States Constitution requires that Presidents (and Vice Presidents) of the United States be natural born citizens of the United 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; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.”
Obama hasn’t met and doesn’t meet the basic qualifications for the presidency – must be natural born citizen.
Obama has been named in dozens of civil lawsuits alleging he is not eligible to be president, with many filing a criminal complaint alleging the commander-in-chief is a fraud.
The filed indictments disputes Obama’s eligibility to be president under the U.S. Constitution which requires that eligible candidates for the United States presidency be “natural born” citizens.
U.S. soldiers including a general refuse to recognize Obama as their Commander in Chief since he is not a U.S. citizen. The soldiers have challenged Obama’s legitimacy by filing federal lawsuits against Obama.
On such soldier was U.S. Army Maj. Stefan Frederick Cook who was given orders to deploy to Afghanistan. Cook refused to deploy stating that he shouldn’t have to go because Obama is not a U.S. citizen and therefore not legally President and Commander in Chief. The military revoked the orders with no reason given. Speculation is that Obama would rather not see this thing go to court before a judge!
“In the 20-page document — filed with the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Georgia — the California-based Taitz asks the court to consider granting his client’s request based upon Cook’s belief that Obama is not a natural-born citizen of the United States and is therefore ineligible to serve as commander-in-chief of the U.S. Armed Forces,” the Ledger-Enquirer reported.
Cook “would be acting in violation of international law by engaging in military actions outside the United States under this President’s command. … simultaneously subjecting himself to possible prosecution as a war criminal by the faithful execution of these duties,” Taitz stated.
Obama says he was born in Hawaii in 1961, just two years after it became a state.
There are many lawsuits and claims that Barack Obama was never eligible to be president because he wasn’t born in the United States. And there is credible evidence that suggests he is not legally eligible to serve as President of the United States.
Newspaper print of LA Times – Occidental recalls ‘Barry’ Obama
Numerous official government documents records Obama being legally registered as Barry Soetoro. School registries shows the registration of Barack Obama under the name Barry Soetoro. During his Occidental College days he is registered as Barry Soetoro. An entry in the journal of the California assembly in reference to grants given to foreign exchange students (this official government document lists Obama as a foreigner not a US citizen. A US citizen wouldn’t qualify for foreign exchange student funding) states Obama as Barry Soetoro from Indonesia.
The first name of a child is always the same from birth. If throughout his childhood Obama went by the first name of Barry then legally his birth name would have to be Barry. In order to register any child for school an official birth certificate must be presented. To receive a government grant proof of citizenship and birth must also be submitted. All of the evidence is stating that Barack Obama’s legal first name is Barry not Barrack.
A biography of Obama’s Occidental College days states that when Obama was 18-19 he attended school as BARRY SOETORO. And it wasn’t until he met a girl by the name of Regina that Obama started using the name Barack. Regina was the first to start calling him Barack. There seems to be no record of Obama legally changing his first name from Barry to Barack.
While being sworn in as an attorney in the State of Illinois, Mr. Obama had to provide his personal information under oath. He was asked, if he had any other names, he responded none. In reality, he used the name Barry Soetoro in an entry in the journal of the California assembly in reference to grants given to foreign exchange students. Mr. Soetoro/Obama clearly defrauded the State Bar of Illinois and perjured himself while concealing his identity. Anybody else would’ve been disbarred for this and the matter would’ve been forwarded to the district attorney for prosecution for perjury and fraud, however nothing was done to Mr. Obama. More importantly, why did he conceal his identity?
If Obama didn’t legally have his name changed from Barry to Barack then the birth certificate he passed to Congress is a fake, a forgery. If his name was registered as Barry Soetoro even though Obama claims his real name is Barack Obama then Obama defrauded the state of California in order to receive college funding. Obama knowingly presented a false document to the state wherein he claimed to be a foreign student in order to illegally acquire financial aid.
TITLE 18 > PART I > CHAPTER 47—FRAUD AND FALSE STATEMENTS
§ 1015. Naturalization, citizenship or alien registry
(a) Whoever knowingly makes any false statement under oath, in any case, proceeding, or matter relating to, or under, or by virtue of any law of the United States relating to naturalization, citizenship, or registry of aliens; or
(b) Whoever knowingly, with intent to avoid any duty or liability imposed or required by law, denies that he has been naturalized or admitted to be a citizen, after having been so naturalized or admitted; or
(c) Whoever uses or attempts to use any certificate of arrival, declaration of intention, certificate of naturalization, certificate of citizenship or other documentary evidence of naturalization or of citizenship, or any duplicate or copy thereof, knowing the same to have been procured by fraud or false evidence or without required appearance or hearing of the applicant in court or otherwise unlawfully obtained; or
(d) Whoever knowingly makes any false certificate, acknowledgment or statement concerning the appearance before him or the taking of an oath or affirmation or the signature, attestation or execution by any person with respect to any application, declaration, petition, affidavit, deposition, certificate of naturalization, certificate of citizenship or other paper or writing required or authorized by the laws relating to immigration, naturalization, citizenship, or registry of aliens; or
(e) Whoever knowingly makes any false statement or claim that he is, or at any time has been, a citizen or national of the United States, with the intent to obtain on behalf of himself, or any other person, any Federal or State benefit or service, or to engage unlawfully in employment in the United States; or
(f) Whoever knowingly makes any false statement or claim that he is a citizen of the United States in order to register to vote or to vote in any Federal, State, or local election (including an initiative, recall, or referendum)—
This evidence is sufficient to annul the presidency of Obama. Official Occidental College transcripts registered with the state declares that Obama is an impostor.
