THE LEGAL BATTLE OVER OBAMA’S CITIZENSHIP STILL ALIVE
I’m putting the economic issues in second position this week to cover an important and ongoing election story with tremendous legal consequences to the issue of presidential qualifications. The election’s most under-reported story, among many, is the story of Obama’s origins in Kenya and the evidence indicating that Obama’s subsequent birth certificate from Hawaii was falsified to give him citizen status. There are two court cases pending on the issue, and it seems obvious now that the courts are dragging their feet to evade a ruling until the election is over. The State of Hawaii appeared to be complicit in the forgery when it happened and is now equally reluctant to come forth and certify the bogus copy of a birth certificate. The US government Election Commission has also failed to do its due diligence in certifying Obama’s citizenship and right to be a US President. Don’t expect this important legal technicality to stop the Obama steamroller. There exists a major conspiracy of silence.
The notoriously liberal debunking website www.snopes.com dismisses the legal challenges to Obama’s citizenship as typical of many “unsuccessful challenges” common to US elections. That’s a bit premature to label a current case as “unsuccessful,” especially when they don’t have the courtesy to air any of the powerful evidence submitted in this legal challenge nor comment on its veracity. This is typical of debunking sites that are propaganda arms of the establishment. They never attempt to answer the tough questions, only the easy straw man arguments.
Dockets.justia.com gives us a summary of the issues in the case: “A Mr. Philip Berg [a Clinton Democrat] presented a case before Federal District Court (Philadelphia), last summer, to have Obama, DNC and Federal Elections Commission show evidence, in the face of Berg’s powerful evidence to the contrary, that Obama is a “Natural Born Citizen.” The defendants moved to dismiss, but the judge denied the motion (9/29) and seemed to think Berg’s documented evidence, that Obama was born in Kenya and then naturalized into Indonesia, was powerful enough to order defendants to produce verified documentation to support Obama’s “Natural Born” claim and status. The judge ordered defendants to produce a birth certificate verified by Hawaii, which seems to be a problem, as well as other documents. On 10/6/2008, defendants filed for protection until they can argue it out. They filed for relief in DC and several levels of government agencies.
“On 10/7/2008, a Psychiatrist Dr. Bradley filed a motion to intervene on Berg’s behalf. The “friend of the Court” [amicus brief] asked to be placed in the records as ‘Jane Doe,’ citing professional and family reasons. She presented documentation from Obama’s grandmother, stepbrother and stepsister that Obama was born in Kenyaand, after birth, was rushed to Hawaii to fraudulently file for birth certification. She further documented that Obama’s Indonesian step sister was also rushed to Hawaii for US certification after her birth.
“Further, Bradley produced documentation that Obama had Indonesian citizenship under the name of Barry Soetoro. He also had an Indonesian passport up to and beyond age 18. After moving in with his Grandmother in Hawaii he did not ‘naturalize,’ as would be required. Bradley’s motion is that Obama is actually an illegal alien. 10/9/2008: In response to defendants’ request for evasion and continued secrecy, Berg filed a summary motion for a speedy trial date … against BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA (his post Pakistan trip name), a/k/a BARRY SOETORO (his Indonesian name), a/k/a, BARRY OBAMA (his American nickname), a/k/a, and BARACK DUNHAM (another formerly used name).”
Obama has claimed at various times to have been born at either Queens Medical Center or Kapiolani Medical Center in Honolulu, Hawaii. Public records do not show any record of his mother, Stanley Ann Dunham (Obama) giving birth to anyone in either place. There is no record of Obama being a naturalized US. Citizen. Thus, the court must rule by default judgment that Obama was born in the Coast Province Hospital in Mombasa, Kenya, as per evidence present by Mr. Berg and that he is not a US citizen.
But, the court is stalling. According to the Philidelphia Daily News, “Mike Finney, deputy clerk to Judge Surrick, says that their office has gotten a blizzard of phone calls about the suit. ‘Within the past week the calls have instensified,’ Finney told us. ‘People from all across the country have been calling.’ He said we should expect a ruling soon. We’ll see. I suspect the judge will either grant a further delay to produce evidence or will find some other technical excuse to stall. Default of a court order is an open and shut cause for affirming the case. The judge is obviously consulting with the PTB on how to get out of this predicament without declaring Obama’s candidacy illegal. This is further evidence that the judicial branch of the US is compromised and the Constitution is dead whenever it gets in the way of the establishment agenda.
THE KENYA CONNECTION
Celeste and Loren Davis (missionaries) tell one of my sources about Obama’s connection to the Odinga family, “We have been living and working in Kenya for almost twelve years now and know his family (tribe) well. They are the ones who were behind the recent Presidential election chaos here. Thousands of people have been displaced by election violence (over 350,000) and I don’t know the last count of the dead. Obama under ‘friends of Obama’ gave almost a million dollars to the opposition campaign who just happened to be his cousin, Raila Odinga, who is a socialist trained in east Germany. He [Odinga] has been trying to bring Kenya down for years and the last president threw him in prison for trying to subvert this country!”
Thus, it is little wonder that World Net Daily’s reporter Jerome Corsi was arrested and subsequently deported in Kenya while attempting to probe Obama’s ties there. Kenya obviously expects to see a lot of US assistance from an Obama presidency and is attempting to keep a lid on Obama’s Leftist relationships in that country.
“WND author and staff writer Jerome Corsi has arrived in the Kenyan capital to investigate Sen. Barack Obama’s ties to the prime minister, Raila Odinga, who was appointed to the position to stop a wave of violence by Muslim supporters. Corsi came at the invitation of Christian missionaries who contend the rise of Islam in the African nation has been spurred by an agreement Odinga signed with Muslim leaders in an effort to win the presidency last December. Odinga lost but now shares power with the Kenyan president to appease Islamic leaders.
“In a chapter of ‘The Obama Nation’ titled ‘Kenya, Odinga, Communism, and Islam,’ Corsi says Obama supported the candidacy of Odinga, a Luo tribesman like Obama’s father, in the 2007 Kenyan presidential election, opposing current president Mwai Kibaki, a member of Kenya’s largest tribe, the Kikuyu. WND previously reported a segment by Chicago’s WBBM-TV that documented Obama attacking Kibaki with critical comments during a 2006 Senate ‘fact-finding trip’ to Kenya.
“The WBBM news team interviewed on camera Kenyan government spokesman Alfred Matua, who accused Obama of meddling inappropriately in Kenyan politics. Odinga continued to consult with Obama by telephone, even in January 2008, while the senator was campaigning in the New Hampshire primary. Odinga, as prime minister, shares the position of Kenyan head-of-state with Kibaki, who retains the title of president.”
