A TALE OF A “FLAWED” BIRTH CERTIFICATE NOW THREATENING OUR CONSTITUTION AND OUR COUNTRY…PART II
by Robert Quinn
(Jul. 21, 2010) — Article II, Section 1 of the U.S. Constitution states: “No person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President…”
U.S. Army Bronze Star recipient Lt. Col. Terrence Lakin, with 18 years of faithful service to our Country, has refused to accept re-deployment to Afghanistan until Barack Obama produces his original Hawaiian birth certificate to satisfy millions challenging his claim of having been eligible to seek the Presidency of the U.S. LTC Lakin’s formal letter to Obama, requesting proof, was ignored. In standing up for our Constitution he now awaits court-martial and possible imprisonment. This tragic tale begins below.
Previously, to satisfy all challenges to his eligibility, Obama posted a document on the “Daily Kos” website, claiming it to be a true copy of his original Hawaiian birth certificate. Was this the “transparency” he promised America? It seemed so until questioners pointed out that his posted document, titled “Certification of Live Birth” (COLB) had the birth certificate number blacked out, contained no birth hospital name, no attending physician, no birth witnesses, etc. All required…all missing! An actual 1961 Certificate of Live Birth contained approximately 41 “fill-in” items. Obama’s document…13 ! When his deception was uncovered he immediately had his records declared off-limits to anyone. “Transparency” flew out the window.
The only Hawaiian document conferring natural-born status was a Certificate of Live Birth, which would have had all the above missing information on it. A “Certification of Live Birth (COLB) only confers, at best, a naturalized-citizenship status. Obama, a Constitutional scholar, was aware of this and knew that he could not allow the Hawaiia Department of Health original birth certificate to be seen, for if it agreed (as he claimed) with the COLB he had posted on Daily Kos, he was ineligible to seek the Presidency; hence, a reason for his spending (to date) over two million dollars (I repeat-over two million dollars) in legal fees to prevent disclosure! Had it been a true “Certificate of Live Birth,” he would have posted it immediately…unless it contained something incriminating.
Federal Judge James Robertson (U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C.) threw out one lawsuit, saying Obama’s citizenship was “thoroughly vetted and massaged by America’s vigilant citizenry during his two year Presidential campaign.” False-then Senator Obama had his attorneys block the release of any documents which may have confirmed (or denied) his eligibility. The judge could not have seen any of the documents since he and all of America never were given access to them. Also, candidates are not vetted by “America’s vigilant citizens.” The Constitution spells out the requirements and procedure.
To each Supreme Court member I sent copies of six respectful letters over a period of nine months which I had written on this issue. Fifty-four copies in all, yet not one response or even acknowledgment. Did I miss the obvious implication of their actions? It is said that Silence often serves as a simple way of avoiding truth.
Bill O’Reilly of Fox News repeatedly mocked anyone asking Obama to release his original birth certificate to public scrutiny, falsely telling his national audience that Fox “could have easily obtained a copy of it,” yet never explained why this never happened. It was because Obama had his records sealed from view, including viewing by Fox News. O’Reilly was either woefully ignorant of this, kept it hidden, or was restrained from mentioning it. He also boasted that his show was “fair and balanced” and “the spin stops here.” Praiseworthy attributes but always absent when the eligibility issue arose. Most saddening was when he and Megyn Kelly did a recent show on LTC Lakin’s impending court-martial. The entire segment consisted of their sarcastically denegrating LTC Lakin, causing me to reflect on another of Bill’s slogans:”We’re looking out for you.” With such friends the Colonel needed no enemies!
Virtually every major media outlet quietly ignored the eligibility issue, pretending it didn’t exist. I earnestly suggest that people call or write, reminding them that they are supposed to report the news, not just their views.
A Diorama of Deception
Obama knowingly posted a false (or limited) COLB on a website in an attempt to deceive anyone who might challenge him!
Whenever his attorneys appeared in court to defend him, they always seemed to have forgotten to bring a copy of his original Certificate of Live Birth, instead claiming Plaintiffs or Courts had “no standing.” If that’s true, then who is left “with standing”: only Obama?
Every document, from Obama’s original birth certificate, school records, passport, medical records, etc. is kept hidden from everyone. Must a house fall upon us to wake us up? Keep in mind that if that happens we may not wake up in time.
Millions clamored for Obama to produce a valid Certificate of Live Birth, yet at a recent meeting he asked that people stop asking for it. What a pathetic response to a burning issue. He travels all over the world to combat criticism but won’t make one telephone call to the Hawaiia Health Department to combat discord.
Some argue that if the lawsuits presently in various courts force Obama to release documents confirming that he is not a “natural-born” American citizen, there will be riots in the streets if he is removed from office. Why, I ask, if he obtained the office unlawfully by deception or fraud, should he be rewarded? Are Truth and Honesty no longer desired attributes in a candidate?
If the withheld documents would truly confirm Obama’s eligibility, as his supporters contend, why won’t any member of the Democrat Party (particularly the vocal ones who dismiss the eligibility issue) suggest that the documents be made public?
When Obama defenders claim eligibility arguments are racially-motivated, are they including the lawsuit of Alan Keyes and all other blacks who are challenging Obama, and would they also include all whites who voted against him?
Recently, “The Globe” magazine offered to donate $100,000 to the United Negro College Fund if Obama would disclose his Hawaiian original birth certificate. Now there’s a “stimulus” package which should warm his heart, for it would help many young black men and women, yet The Globe’s phone still hasn’t rung.
LTC Lakin made one simple request of Obama: In light of the national furor, please produce a valid birth certificate confirming your eligibility and I will gladly deploy to Afghanistan. If, to prevent disclosure of his sealed records, Obama would destroy the career of a dedicated officer, what more damning proof must the military “experience” to realize that, if necessary, he would “throw anyone under the bus” rather than jeopardize his own status? We don’t want future historians writing “For want of a valid birth certificate a Republic was lost.”
MAY GOD BLESS AMERICA
PS: My “eligibility” writing is driven by our Constitution, for without it we will invite anarchy.
