Why Obama’s Birth Certificate Matters, Especially Now

There was a time when someone could perhaps justify sitting on the fence on the matter of Barack Obama’s birth certificate.  There were those on the left who could chalk doubts about its authenticity up to conspiratorial Internet paranoia.  As for the right, there was every reason to worry about being the victims of an Alinsky-style set-up designed to marginalize opponents.  In other words, let the other side double-down on an incredible claim, and then, at the most opportune time (October surprise?), provide irrefutable evidence to the contrary and make them look like deluded wackos.  So, for a long time, one might have had cause to watch, wait, and let the wheels of investigation render their judgment.

That judgment is in, and the time for waiting is over.

With the results of Maricopa County, AZ, sheriff Joe Arpaio’s “Cold Case Posse,” an incredible claim has become an incredible situation: a team of professional investigators, commissioned by a major law-enforcement agency, has determined that the alleged birth certificate produced by the president of the United States is a probable forgery.

Process that for a moment.  The regime of the world’s most powerful nation – a republic that prides itself on adherence to the rule of law – is likely peddling a forged document.  What say you, citizen?

Note that I didn’t claim the president isn’t natural-born.  Rather, I claim nothing, but am only stating a fact: there is now no denying that the birth-certificate matter warrants further investigation, and it is time for other law-enforcement agencies and the media to show due diligence.  And I will spell out the possibilities here:

The Arizona investigators are correct.
They are mistaken.
They are lying.

For the record, I don’t believe the last for a moment, but I do want to cover all the bases.  And home plate is this: the answer may be number one or two, and it’s incumbent upon us to find out through further investigation.  And, for those who dislike Sheriff Arpaio, what if the answer is three?  Well, if a major law-enforcement agency is producing fraudulent evidence for the purposes of damaging a sitting president, wouldn’t that warrant investigation, too?  The undeniable, irrefutable fact here is that there is smoke.  And we need to find out who started the fire.

In response to these facts the left will sometimes mount an argument for why Obama is, in fact, natural-born.  But this issue is at the moment secondary.  And about it I will merely state that there are only two possibilities.  First, if the allegedly forged birth certificate relates to the president’s natural-born status, then it’s clear that the Obama administration is more concerned about that status than are his defenders.  And what if it doesn’t relate to whether the president is natural-born?

Then it relates to something else.

You don’t present a forged document for no reason.  The undeniable, irrefutable fact here is that there is smoke.  And we need to find out what is feeding the fire.

Remember, too, that document forgery is a crime.  If you were found benefiting yourself through it, you’d be prosecuted.  Should the president be held to a lower standard?

In point of fact, on the part of the media and citizenry, he must be held to a higher one.  We’re not talking here about some kid who forged an ID so he could drink at 18 in a bar.  This is the most powerful man in the world, who, it appears, may be passing off a forgery for some mysterious – or not so mysterious – reason.  This mystery needs to be solved.

Having said this, I wrote “may” for a good reason.  There are those who believe, as writer Cindy Simpson put it, that “perhaps someone purposely tinkered with the document in order to make it look…suspicious.”  Harking back to my first paragraph, such an Alinskyite tactic would give the right just enough rope to hang itself, especially with our black-hooded media.  After all, the thinking goes, if this isn’t the case, why would the most powerful man in the world produce such a bush-league forgery?
Yet there is another, more mundane explanation.


As I and others have noted, the slackers at the Obama White House are notorious for not even being able to issue press releases with proper spelling and grammar.  So would it be shocking that they might be more Inspector Clouseau than James Bond when trying to be the KGB?  Having said this, we should proceed with caution, being careful to not overstate our case.

But we should proceed.  After all, consider the consequences of allowing a high crime such as the one alleged here to go unanswered. If Obama is willing to fob off a forgery on the American people, what else is he capable of?  If he gets away with it, what else will he do?  Remember that in every case in history in which a leader amassed more power for himself by gradually undermining his nation’s democratic system, he had millions of enablers.  These were the crowds Cicero spoke of that cheered “ambitious scoundrel” Julius Caesar as he paved his way to dictator status.  These are the “good men” Edmund Burke referred to who do nothing in the face of evil.  Sometimes, of course, they’re simply scared.  Other times, they may not want to seem like a nutty Chicken Little saying the sky is falling.  Or they may not want to accept that it actually is, so they rationalize and dress the naked emperor with their eyes.  After all, when a problem is daunting or scary, the self-delusion that allows one to ignore it can be appealing.

Most people also don’t want conflict; they may fear a constitutional crisis.  But know that if Obama is peddling a forged document, it may simply be another example of how we already are in a constitutional crisis.  The only question now is whether we’re going to fight the fire or continue to fiddle while the Constitution burns.

  1. I will leave the birth certificate to the experts but his selective service card is a bad forgery….likely submitted in 2008…..probably when he was a dumbass wise-guy college radical wannabe he never registered…..bad news for him…because its obviously a forgery

  2. We know that Obama had a Hawaii birth certificate in 1961 because of the birth notices in the Hawaii newspapers. We know that the DOH of Hawaii was the only source of those notices. The papers have said that they did not take birth notice advertising in 1961 and that they only took their birth notices from the DOH.

    In addition to this, three Republican and several Democrat officials in Hawaii have confirmed the facts on Obama's birth certificate.

    You will need a few things:

    1) A copy of the fraudulent birth certificate, directly from the whitehouse website: http://www.whitehouse.gov/sites/default/files/rss

    1a.) You will also need Adobe Reader to open the web file, and download/save it to your hard drive: http://get.adobe.com/reader

    2) A free trial copy of Adobe Illustrator: http://www.adobe.com/cfusion/tdrc/index.cfm?produ
    (this will allow you to open the birth certificate with software which is capable of displaying the layers, accurately, and allowing the fraud to be seen in detail.)

    3) Arpaio's full video report, to show you a few things to look for. It discusses important evidence of fraud: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F1wiGDYPALI
    (duplicating the demonstrations, with the tools given above, will allow you to do much of the same investigation Arapio's team did.)

    4) Tom Harrison's report on defects/artifacts in birth certificate, proving fraud: http://www.wnd.com/files/2011/07/110726whitedots….
    (following Tom's guide, you will be able to see that that obama's birth certificate is an ABSOLUTE FRAUD!)

    The web is also full of other inconsistencies and evidence of the fraud, mismatched type imported from other documents, mixed, modern day computer type with 1961 typewriter type, etc.

    There is little doubt that the birth certificate is a fraud (but, hey, if obama can explain the posting of a fraudulent document to the whitehouse website — and how he became so confused as to think it is his birth certificate, I will listen.) And, one must wonder why a criminal is being allowed to remain in the public servant office of president. There are obvious problems with a criminal occupying the office of president, one is the military being unable to follow unlawful orders, since a criminal issuing orders from the whitehouse, and acting as commander in chief would be unlawful, all of his orders would be unlawful, and the military would be unable to act, lawfully, on such orders.

    Also, any and all actions, bill, laws, executive orders, decisions, etc. would be unlawful, illegal, unbinding and without validity — if done by an illegal and criminally treasonous president. As more and more American citizens wake up to these truths, there is only one way to accurately describe the situation we are in, or simply, "WE ARE IN DEEP DUDU!"

    And remember, while Angels may have halos, birth certificates DON'T! (you will learn about this while examing the materials, above.)

  4. THREE Republican officials and the current head of the DOH of Hawaii have confirmed the facts on Obama's birth certificate.

    No official in Hawaii–and they are the authorities after all–has said that there is anything wrong with Obama's birth certificate or that there is anything different in the published image of it from what they sent to Obama.

    Other research done on this issue:

    The DOH of Hawaii stated in a letter that she had seen the original birth certificate being copied onto security paper and that was the document that she gave to Obama’s lawyer. That physical copy was passed around in the White House press room and everyone there got a chance to hold it, and feel the seal. One reporter even photographed it.

  5. I think the title of this article, and the way everything is going, especially the missing air travel records to Hawaii, right at obama’s supposedly birth date in Hawaii says it all!

    There are missing records everywhere, the missing Kenya birth records, the missing transportation records, etc. And, I bet there is missing records in the clerks/recorder office of Hawaii, the hospital(s) in Hawaii where he was supposedly born!

    Are there missing records at the colleges he attended? Are there other missing records?

    What about the selective service records which Arpaio has requested, is there a “strange” case of missing records there, also? SOMETHING TELLS ME THIS MIGHT JUST GET BIG!!!!!

    Yep, the truth, once you take a close look is staring you RIGHT IN THE FACE!

  6. Since there were no direct flights from Kenya to Hawaii in 1961 the fact that there are INS records in Hawaii that are missing is not relevant. The way to get from Kenya to Hawaii was via New York, and those records ARE NOT MISSSING, and those records do not show that Obama was carried into the USA.

    The reason that there are missing Kenya birth records is, duh, because there are NO Kenya birth records.

    For those of you who still believe that Obama could have been born in Kenya, or in fact in any foreign country, a question for you:

    I’ll bet that you know (but, actually, you may have forgotten) that the US government requires, and has long required, that a child being carried into the USA must have some kind of official travel document to be admitted. This is usually a US passport for the child. Or, it could be the fact that the child is entered on the mother’s US passport. Or, it could be a US visa for the child on a foreign passport. Without one of those, we would not let the child into the country.

    So, IF Obama really had been born in Kenya (or in any country other than the USA), he would have had to have one of those documents–wouldn’t he? His family would have had to show the passport, wouldn’t they? To show the passport, they would have had to have applied for the passport or the visa for Obama. And, if Obama really were born in Kenya (or another country), they would have had to have applied for it in the US consulate or embassy there, wouldn’t they?

    Such applications are FILED by the US government. The documents exist in multiple files, the actual application itself, communication about it with Washington, entries in the passport file, entries in the application file, entries in the places where the child is carried into the USA. The Bush Administration was in charge of the State Department and the INS for eight years before Obama was elected. Don’t you think that they would have checked the claim that he was born outside the USA?

    All they had to do was find one of those files and McCain would win the election.

    Well, they never did. There is no such file.

    So the question is, do you think that the Bush Administration was part of the plot?

    Do you think that the files, the documents, the application for the documents, the communications about the documents were all lost or hidden? Remember, they are in multiple files, the file of the passport holder, the files of applications for passports, the files in the US embassy in foreign countries, the files in the State Department and in the INS (which would have checked in Obama at an entry point if he had actually traveled in 1961)–and yet no document has been found. Why not?

    The absence of the travel document, plus the Hawaii birth certificate, plus the confirmation of the facts on it by three Republican (and several Democrat) officials, plus the birth notices in the Hawaii newspapers in 1961, plus the witness who remembers being told of the birth and writing home about it (to her father, named Stanley, about the unusual event of a birth to a woman named Stanley). All this is evidence that Obama was born in Hawaii. Oh, and by the way, Obama’s Kenyan grandmother NEVER said that Obama was born in Kenya. That was the first of the birther lies. She said repeatedly in the taped interview that he was born in Hawaii. And she said in another interview, with the Hartford Courtant newspaper, that the first that her family had heard of Obama’s birth was IN A LETTER FROM HAWAII.
