Birth Certificate Issue Not Yet Resolved…

From World Net Daily by Janet Porter

Rathergate II: Certification of Live Birth a clear forgery

The media bought it. The voters bought it. And now some in Congress are resisting the idea of congressional hearings because they believe that Barack Obama’s “birth certificate” has been posted online.

Not so.

What was posted was not a birth certificate, but something that resembles a “Certification of Live Birth” or COLB, which, even if authentic, does not prove “natural born” U.S. citizenship. You see, in Hawaii, a Certification of Live Birth is issued within a year of a child’s birth to those who register a birth abroad or one that takes place outside a hospital.

It’s Rathergate all over again with more amiss than a 1970s Selectric typewriter. But before I tell you what the experts found, let me ask you a few questions:

1) If you were a natural born American citizen and had it within your means to quiet all the lawsuits and questions with proof, would you do it?

2) If you were a natural born American citizen, would you spend thousands of dollars to fight the legal cases against you, or would you simply answer the legitimate question of whether you meet the constitutional requirements for office?

3) If you were a natural born American citizen, would you forge a document called a “Certification of Live Birth” and tell the public it was a real “birth certificate”?

This question simply isn’t going to go away until the President-elect comes clean.

Dr. Ron Polarik, who has a Phd. in Instructional Media, has determined the document posted to the Daily Kos, supposedly supplied by the Obama Campaign, is a forgery. In this YouTube video, he details his findings. Or, if you prefer, you can read the details in this article on

Several lawsuits have been filed requesting Obama submit the document for verification. One such suit was brought by attorney Philip J. Berg has been appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court. From this article at The Valley Truth published on 11/7/2008…

At this point, Supreme Court Justice David Souter’s Clerk informed Philip J. Berg, the lawyer who brought the case against Obama, that his petition for an injunction to stay the November 4th election was denied, but the Clerk also required the defendants to respond to the Writ of Certiorari (which requires the concurrence of four Justices) by December 1. At that time, Mr. Obama must present to the Court an authentic birth certificate, after which Mr. Berg will respond.

So the Supreme Court should have received a response to the writ no later than yesterday. It would seem a simple thing to do if they truly had a legal birth certificate in hand. But, according to this article on World Net Daily

Obama, DNC elude citizenship lawsuit deadline

President-elect Barack Obama and the Democratic National Convention have let a Dec. 1 deadline slip by without responding to Pennsylvania attorney Philip J. Berg’s petition for writ of certiorari demanding Obama produce a legitimate birth certificate to document his eligibility for office.

Why wouldn’t they just produce the document and make all this go away? Do the President-elect and his party believe they are above the reach of the Supreme Court? Our constitution is quite clear that this issue must be resolved…

Age and Citizenship requirements-US Constitution, Article II, Section 1

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.

Is there any ambiguity here?

Let’s resolve this issue once and for all. The following are links to petitions you can sign to demand the President-elect clear this matter up at once.

It’s time for Obama to come clean. If you agree, please sign the petitions linked above.

Poll: How should the Republican Party proceed?

After the crushing defeat in last month’s election, most agree the GOP needs to reorient itself. The overwhelming Democratic victory signals an utter lack of trust in the Republican Party on the part of the American electorate.

Bloggers everywhere are voicing their opinions on both cause and cure for the illness that has befallen the party and these opinions vary from one extreme to the other. Some claim Conservatism has failed and cannot be revived, others claim the party must return to its core principles, and still others believe the remedy lies somewhere in between.

If you’ve read my previous posts, you’re probably already aware of my position. But, I thought I’d leave it up to readers of this blog to have their say. Please answer the poll question in the upper right hand corner to give your input.

I’ll run one of these polls each week, later addressing specific issues. Feel free to comment on this post to elaborate on your position or suggest future poll questions.
