ANOTHER TWIST IN THE OBAMA ELIGIBILITY SAGA FROM TIM ADAMS
by Gary Steven
(Jun. 14, 2010) — As World Net Daily has recently reported, Tim Adams, a 2008 senior elections clerk for the Honolulu district, has contended that he was told that there is no long-form birth certificate for Obama, contrary to what Hawaii officials have publicly stated.
The White House still obfuscates the facts about Obama with the daily press corps. At a press briefing on June 11, 2010, Robert Gibbs stammered to formulate a cogent response to a reporter asking about the Connecticut social security number presently being used by Barry Soetero. The dialog then morphed into the birth certificate issue with no definite resolution.
There appears to be a desire by more than just a few “birthers” to actually settle the matter in question. On one hand, the Constitutional requirement for the office of President and Vice President of the United States is clearly spelled out as “natural born Citizen.” Obama’s lack of qualifications has already been answered in his book, Dreams From My Father, in which he allegedly spoke of his past and the fact that his father was a Kenyan/British citizen. That would have made Obama/Soetoro a British citizen as well at birth. Barack Obama Sr. was never a U.S. citizen; he only obtained a temporary student visa. The complete silence of Congress on this vetting procedure is perplexing.
But then, on the other hand, there is a question about what real documentation verifies the hidden past of Barry Soetero. There is an abundant supply of speculation regarding his past. To further complicate matters, the lack of disclosure of all past school records, passport information, actual long-form birth certificate, and adoption papers fuels the debate about his eligibility and authenticity. The campaign trail was stoked by speeches and promises of transparency and open dealings within his future administration. And yet, before the first full day in office was completed, an executive order was signed sealing all records to his past.
Many speeches later, Obama’s consistent media presence leaves many voters of both parties and some in the media trying to match his words with actions that reveal just the opposite. One fact is certain: he holds the office of POTUS based on what “we the people” DON’T know about him. The diligence of the fourth estate in fact finding and reporting is to be commended. The heightened awareness concerning the Constitutional qualifications for president is at an all-time high with copies of the Constitution flying off bookstore shelves as well as online order houses. The citizens of this once great country are being challenged by a “fundamental transformation.” An increase in court filings and FOIA (Freedom of Information Act) requests seems to be occurring. The refusal of orders by a decorated flight surgeon who is now preparing for court martial over his doubts about the legitimacy of the de facto commander-in-chief is raising even more awareness among the people.
As the facts become known, and the diligence of the new media which seeks to find the truth continues unabated, it would behoove many traditional journalists to acquire the focus and tenacity to cover what is unpopular and still unresolved. May the truth in facts bear out what has yet to be revealed on the mystery of Barry Soetoro, aka Barack Obama.
