Mayor of Champaign, IL doesn’t believe Obama is a citizen


by Sharon Rondeau

The city of Champaign, IL is located 45 miles from the Indiana border and was named after a town in Ohio

(Apr. 17, 2010) — An elected official in the state where Obama served in the senate and the U.S. Senate has gone on the record stating that he has doubts about Obama’s citizenship.

The statement was made at a tea party event and reported mainly by The Associated Press. The mayor, Jerry Schweighart, was asked by a cameraman what he thought of Obama, and Schweighart answered, “You know, if you’re not willing to produce an original certificate like a birth certificate, then you’ve got something to hide.”

Schweighart was formerly an officer and chief of police for the city.

The city of Champaign, IL was founded in 1855 after the construction of the Illinois Central Railroad had begun. The county in which Champaign is located bears the same name. The city was originally called West Urbana. Although an agricultural community, Champaign is home to the University of Illinois and Parkland College.

    Over a year later to your comment, headed to 2012 in a few days. Still so called “lawyers” are paid to continue the deception of the USA by blocking O’s history from American citizens. We will get the information and when we do, the lawyers must be tried as cooperatives and assistants to a traitor. Get a good reporter to produce those names.

    The Mayor said nothing that deserves being fired for nor should he step down.
    He stated his opinion, which he is entitled to, and it did nothing to harm the city.
    Where were you idiots when folks were making films about killing George Bush??
    Ok, that’s ok huh??
    Get a life. Stop whining.
    …and frankly, have ANY of you seen irrefutable PROOF that Obama is a natural born American?

    I know he ISN’T a “Natural-Born American”. He isn’t naturalized (His mother did not meet the legal requirements of having been a citizen for ten years/five of which are after the age of 16).

    I don’t believe he is either Jerry.

    Agree with you. Wish there was more we could do. Don’t know where to turn.

    George, I to say the same as you and have been saying it-the BC is not the issue anymore. It is the citizenship of his father–a British subject which makes him the same–except you forgot his adoption by his Indonesian stepfather! He is a dual citizen. So his his real name Barack Hussein Obama or Barry Soetoro? After his adoption did he take back his other name-did he ever apply for US citizenship upon his return from Indonesia? I think not or he wouldn’t have signed an Exec Order the day of his inauguration to have all of his records sealed! He is a dual citizen and ineligible to hold the office of the president. This is all by design and planned by the NWO and Bilderbergers. He is their messenger-and if we want to take our country back we need to take out the fed reserve, UN, CFR, trilateral, and everyone of Soros organizations that hand tentacles and fingers everywhere within our country and system. If this is not done than WE THE PEOPLE will never have our country back and we will never be free from tyranny again.

    We need to stop chasing the birth certificate. It does not exist in Hawaii and has probably been destroyed in Kenya. We have him dead to rights on the Citizenship of his father, who was a British Subject at the time of his birth. He could have been born in Kansas and still he would be ineligible based on his father’s citizenship. It is in the Constitution and there have been cases in the past on this question for other “citizens.” We need to have the Supreme Court get off their duffs and throw the bum out. Levenworth would be too good for him. How about we deport him to Kenya and let him live with his half brother in a mud hut?
    Enough is enough.

    I wonder if he has been forced to backtrack yet?
    I wish more people would say what their logic and common sense makes them believe.
