Tyranny, and Putting Some Questions to Rest

First of all, it is not a birth certificate, and secondly it is not valid.
I’m talking about Obama’s “green” altered COLB (Certificate Of Live Birth), that everyone from Fox’s Bill O’Reilly, to CNN’s Anderson Cooper, to White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs, have been pointing to as “proof” that Obama is a Natural citizen of the United States, and therefore eligible to be POTUS. Link
I’ll write this slowly so that Bill O’Reilly, and others of like-mind (the “after-birthers”) can follow along.
The COLB says in great big EZ-to-read letters “Any Alterations Invalidate This Certificate.” Check.
The COLB has been altered (certification numbers blacked out). Check
Ergo, the COLB is invalid. Check.
Check, check, and check. Please reread the above as many times as needed in order to process it. I’ll wait.
Okay? If you want to debate the importance of the certification numbers, that’s one thing, but to claim that the certification is valid, is quite another. The COLB waved around by so many, as proof of Obama’s eligibility to be POTUS, is invalid. Period.
And, need I add, a COLB is certainly not a birth certificate. Again, claiming that an invalid COLB is as good as a genuine birth certificate is one thing, but to claim that they are one and the same, is quite another.Link
The Obama COLB that has been on display at FightTheSmears.com and other websites, is neither valid, nor a birth certificate—it never has been, and never will be. Exclamation point. ”>Link
The question remains: Where’s the birth certificate? And you had darn well better believe that’s a valid, sensible, and important question.
Some folks seem fond of pointing to two newspaper birth notices, reputedly placed in Hawaiian newspapers during 1961. They mockingly say something to the effect of “Oh yeah, sure, somebody was so clairvoyant, that they placed Obama’s birth notice in the Hawaiian papers in 1961, because they knew he would someday be President almost half a century later.” Ha ha.
“Reasoning” such as this, embraces several different fallacies of logic. I’ll pick “Appeal to Ridicule”—also known as “Appeal to Mockery.” In this form of fallacy (i.e. faulty logic), some form of ridicule is aimed towards a claim.
According to the Nizcor website “This sort of ‘reasoning’ is fallacious, because mocking a claim, does not show that it is false. ” That bears repeating, “mocking a claim does not make it false.” (When dealing with the Far Left, pundits, and politicians in general, it’s always a good idea to bone-up on your knowledge of fallacies).
Indeed, claiming that someone “planted” birth notices in two Hawaiian papers because they somehow knew Obama would be POTUS decades later, is ridiculous. But let me hasten to add, that thinking that such a reason is the ONLY cause for someone to fake a birth announcement, is idiotic.
I can think of several, better, reasons for faking such an announcement. At the top of the list, would be so that a baby born outside of the U.S., could claim U.S. citizenship, and all of the perks that U.S. citizenship entails.
The “elephant in the room,” however, is that even if Obama was born in Hawaii, he is still not a Natural born citizen, as the Constitution (Article 2, Section 1, Clause 5) says he must be, in order to be eligible to be POTUS.Link
Obama’s father, if not Obama himself, was born in Kenya, and was (everyone agrees on this point) a citizen of Kenya, at the time of Obama’s birth. Ergo, since BOTH of Obama’s parents were NOT U.S. citizens at the time of his birth, he cannot conceivably qualify to be POTUS, according to the Constitution. Link
Obama may be Native born—indeed, the left-wing website FightTheSmears.com states that “Barack Obama was born in the state of Hawaii in 1961, a native citizen of the United States of America.”Link
A “Native citizen”—because he was born in the U.S. (so they say), but NOT a Natural citizen (Natural born), because BOTH parents were NOT U.S. citizens. Link
Regardless of whether or not Obama was born in Hawaii, he is, at best, a Native citizen—not a Natural citizen, and hence ineligible to be POTUS. Link
Just ignore the left-wing’s legal-weasel lawfare, and their spinmeister spiels of “smoke and mirrors” misdirection. The truth shall set us free.
I am, of course, far from being the first to bring these facts out into the open—I’m only the latest in a long line. Several other writers at Canada Free Press, and numerous other columnists have written about this topic. Not to mention the many lawsuits that have been brought to court. Link
Currently, the cases of Lt. Col. Lakin, and Commander Walter Fitzpatrick III, are on the front burner. Both are men of integrity and honor, who have taken to heart, their oaths to defend the Constitution. They put the court-eunuchs at the Pentagon to shame. Link
Now that the eligibility issue has been settled, perhaps it’s time to look into why Obama has kept his past—from kindergarten school on up—hidden from “we the people.” Link
Perhaps it’s time to look into why Barack and Michelle Obama felt called upon to surrender their licenses to practice law. Perhaps it’s time to find out about Obama’s purported years at Columbia—especially his trip to Pakistan. Link and Link
And, of course, there’s the more fundamental and wider issue of, who are the puppet-masters behind Obama? Who greased the skids for his way into Harvard; got him placed as a keynote speaker at the 2004 Democratic Convention, and helped clear the way for his meteoric rise in politics?
I’ll be watching Pastor James D. Manning’s upcoming “C.I.A., Obama, Sedition and Treason Trial,” with great interest (May 14-19). Link
P.S. Congratulations are in order for Navy SEALs, Matthew McCabe, Jonathan Keefe, and Julio Huertas—all have been acquitted on the charge of “being too mean” to a Muslim terrorist. Hooyah, gentlemen! Link
And screw the duplicitous scum who brought the charges against them in the first place. Link
