The Nature of Obama’s Birth & Citizenship
BY UNKNOWN AUTHOR
Being a “natural born citizen” is required to serve in the office of the Presidency under our U.S. Constitution. Obama has only produced a computer-generated, short-form, registration of birth form called a “Certification of Live Birth”, (aka COLB). And some question the genuineness of that proffered document. But note, it does not say “Certificate” it says “Certification”. Thus it is not a Birth “Certificate”.
And this is a key difference in the discussion of what Obama has proffered and what he has not. Only the actual long form original typed version signed by the mother and delivering doctor and/or other witnesses is a Birth “Certificate” under Hawaiian law and to the courts. In Hawaii that document is named “Certificate of Live Birth”.
Note, the change in the one word, “Certificate” of Live Birth (aka long form Birth Certificate), not “Certification” of Live Birth (aka COLB, the computer generated short form), which is what Obama has proffered thus far.
And a short form “COLB” is not a conclusive legal document to prove birth and is not acceptable to most courts for proof of birth facts.
A short form “COLB” shows a birth was registered. But not by whom and exactly how. Nor does it provide the facts necessary to trace the facts to independent third party witnesses or facts, such as the name of the hospital or doctor. So, Obama has proved his birth was registered in Hawaii but has not proven conclusively that he was physically born there, nor what exactly is stated or not stated on the long form document filled out in 1961, if one exists. Read the next paragraph as to why.
Registration of live births under the vague laws in Hawaii in 1961 is not proof of birth in Hawaii at all. Read the laws on the books in Hawaii for registration of births in 1961.
This is what the law actually allowed in 1961.
“Certificates for children born out of State. (a) Upon application of an adult or the legal parents of a minor child, the director of health shall issue a birth certificate for such adult or minor, provided that proof has been submitted to the director of health that the legal parents of such individual while living without the Territory or State of Hawaii had declared the Territory or State of Hawaii as their legal residence for at least one year immediately preceding the birth or adoption of such child.”
See links below for more about the relevant Hawaiian law. A computer generated Certification of Live Birth (COLB) issued in Hawaii is not acceptable to even their own courts as conclusive proof of birth in Hawaii. Under Hawaiian law in 1961, a child could be born anywhere in the world and have the birth registered in Hawaii by the mother after the birth, with true or false information, without any third party independent verification of said “facts” entered on the form by the mother, upon her returning to Hawaii using this law on the books in 1961.
[Nash notes: that is incorrect. Third party verification was and is legally required in the form of a signed affidavit under penalty of perjury, and willingness to undergo a personal interrogation as to the facts asserted. Without corroborating witnesses under oath, no birth certificate could be issued. THAT is why baby Obama was not issued a Certificate of Live Birth, and thus the short-form fake had to be created to cover his lack of proof of place of birth, which, by the way, is irrelevant to natural citizenship.]
Read this simple, straight forward, comparative report about what Obama has proffered as evidence of “natural born citizenship” and what he has NOT provided:
[note: Obama proffered nothing as evidence of being a natural born citizen. His only claims were that he was a native-born citizen and was a United States citizen per the 14th Amendment.]
Reference proof of natural born citizenship, a computer generated form (aka COLB) can be easily PhotoShop’d, altered, or forged. Such a simple registration record could be retro-actively filed in Hawaii in 1961 as a post birth event registration after birth of a child, with the birth not even having occurred in Hawaii.
No one checked these retro-active registrations in HI at that time which were done by simply signing an affidavit that the facts are true. The mother or grandparents could have done this retro-actively upon the mother’s return to give the infant child citizenship. This was a possible cover up at the time by the mother and grandmother.
[as noted above, the mother’s affidavit is insufficient to allow issuance of a Certificate of Live Birth, but it is kept on file as evidence of the lawful claim that a child was native-born.]
The short form data is then being abstracted from a false, delayed registration of birth, filed with false information by the mother with a simple affidavit with no non-family member, independent witnesses. That was permitted under Hawaii law in 1961. A mother could register the birth of her child upon returning to Hawaii after the actual birth elsewhere. But who knew this child would grow up and run for President, and that someone would dig into the records to find the truth, as is now being done.
Such a case would explain the stalling, delaying, and obfuscating tactics Obama and his lawyers are engaging in. They don’t want the true nature of the birth records registered in Hawaii by his mother and maternal grandmother revealed.
FACT: A qualification per the U.S. Constitution for a person to serve as the President of the U.S. is that they must be a “natural born citizen”. And there are several categories of citizenship in the USA: Naturalized, Derivative, Statutory, Native Born, and Natural Born.
Obama may or may not be Native Born depending on the validity of his paternal grandmother’s statement in Kenya, and the sealed hospital records in Mombasa, Kenya, but he is certainly not “natural born” since for that term both his parents must be U.S. citizens (of any category) when he was born.
And per statements made in his own campaign’s website, and in his books, Obama has admitted his father was a British Subject when Obama was born. Obama’s father never at any time was a U.S. citizen. Thus Obama is NOT a natural “born citizen” according to our Constitution’s framer’s intent and the meaning of the English language words themselves. And thus he cannot legitimately serve as our President under our Constitution.
