“SHOW ME” THE PROOF OF OBAMA’S HAWAII BIRTH, MR. SENATOR!
Dear Editor: Here is my letter to Missouri Senator Kit Bond, with thanks to Neil Turner and David LaRocque. There is no point in writing Senator Claire McCaskill, as I know from experience.
Sept. 12, 2010
Senator Christopher Bond
274 Russell Senate Office Bldg.
Washington, DC 20510
Dear Senator Bond:
Senator Bond, it is my understanding that a letter has been sent to you via certified mail from Mr. Lucas Smith asserting that Mr. Smith has personal knowledge indicating that Barack Obama was born in Mombasa, Kenya; and further that Mr. Smith provided a certified copy of the Kenyan birth certificate for Mr. Obama (which Mr. Smith has in his possession).
The learned constitutional scholarship and meticulous research of Attorneys Mario Apuzzo and Leo Donofrio have demonstrated clearly that the “natural born citizen” requirement for the office of president set forth in Article II of the United States Constitution , as defined by Emerich de Vattel in “The Law of Nations,” means “born in the country of parents who are citizens.”
Thus the presidential eligibility clause in Article II of the U.S. Constitution means that there are TWO independent conditions which must be met to satisfy the NBC requirement to serve as president (or vice-president in accordance with the Twelfth Amendment to the Constitution), and for which, by implication, the people have a right of verification and substantiation:
- the person elected to the office of president must have been born in the United States, and
- the person elected to the office of president must have been born of parents who are BOTH citizens of the United States at his or her birth.
The Kenyan birth certificate may or may not be authentic, but it seems unlikely that Mr. Smith would send this document by hand-addressed certified mail to 535 members of Congress unless he believed it to be authentic. He has also signed a sworn affidavit explaining how he personally obtained the BC from the Coast Province Hospital in Mombasa, British Protectorate of Kenya. Moreover, the Kenyan BC has far greater face validity than the internet image of a purported secondary birth document from Hawaii that has been falsely claimed to be and wrongly accepted as a genuine birth certificate.
Unlike the purported secondary document from Hawaii, which Hawaii has never verified as authentic, the Kenyan Certificate of Birth is a primary document that bears a certificate number, states a hospital of birth, is signed by the doctor, signed by the supervisor of obstetrics, signed by or for the chief administrator who released the document on Feb. 19, 2009, has the imprint of baby Obama’s foot, and bears an official seal.
It does not take an expert in document authentication to see that the Kenyan birth certificate ranks much higher in face validity than the possibly forged document produced by Obama’s own campaign office in 2008.
If there is any question that our Commander-in-Chief is a foreigner, Congress should immediately investigate the facts and hold open, fair hearings to definitively ascertain the truth.
If the Kenyan birth certificate is valid, then Obama is clearly and unequivocally ineligible to serve in the office of president, and he must be removed immediately. On the other hand, if it can be proven that Obama was actually born in Hawaii as he claims, then the parental citizenship issue must be resolved, most likely requiring a clarifying decision by the U.S Supreme Court in spite of the clear language of the Constitution. This is why it is so important to get the matter of the legally-admissible documentation of Obama’s birth location resolved promptly, so as to move expeditiously to the Supreme Court if that becomes necessary.
It is unacceptable to continue playing ostrich by allowing the questionable eligibility of our Commander-in-Chief to go unresolved. You are not seeking re-election, so what have you got to lose by standing up for the Constitution in your final days of service to this nation?
