BARACK OBAMA…PRESIDENT OR PRETENDER?
by Robert Quinn
(Feb. 20, 2011) — Neil Abercrombie, Dem. Governor of Hawaii and long-time friend of Obama family members, said he would obtain Obama’s original Hawaiian Department of Health Birth Certificate (Certificate of Live Birth) to settle the Presidential issue for good. Two weeks later, he now says that no Birth Certificate was found in Hawaii’s records, only a “written notation” mentioning Obama’s birth. Shades of the 1940’s “Kilroy was here” fad; a “written signature put on buildings, bridges, trains, etc. to satirically imply a mystical figure had been there! Hawaii’s fruitless search did serve one useful purpose, making a lie of Obama’s previous statements that the “Certification of Live Birth” (COLB) which he posted on the Daily Kos website was a “true copy” of the Health Department Birth Certificate, now apparently non-existent.
A 1961 Hawaiian “Certificate of Live Birth” had approximately 42 points of required info while Obama’s COLB had about 13, glaringly lacking a birth hospital name, birth certificate number, doctor’s name, witnesses names, etc. I cannot over-emphasize the significance of the next sentence. Obama, a Constitutional teacher, clearly knew beforehand that his limited COLB was either fraudulent or only able to confirm “naturalized citizenship” status and that Our Constitution (Article II, Sec. 1) limited Presidential eligibility to natural-born “Certificate of Live Birth.” If, as Obama said, his COLB was a copy of the Hawaiian Birth Certificate, both documents would have been COLB’s and both thereby unacceptable for eligibility purposes. Also, the Hawaiian Director of Health, Dr. Chiyome Fukino (ret.), declared in 2008: “I have personally seen and verified that the Hawaii State Department of Health has (then Senator) Obama’s original birth certificate on record, in accordance with State policies and procedures.” What “policy or procedure” enables one to see and verify a document which appears to have never existed? In fairness, when Obama recently asked: “Should I paste my birth certificate on my forehead?” I sympathized with him since he already had produced four different versions of it (“if at first you don’t succeed, try, try again”) and could not possibly fit all four on his forehead.
The Plot Thickens
I previously wrote eight letters on this issue, sending them to thousands. In addition, all mentioned in these letters received copies but none challenged or even acknowledged my words. I am no scholar, but after eighteen years of writing I have found that many deny truth by their silence. The Media silence is a notable shame. With few exceptions, they treat Obama’s birth certificate issue as a non-issue. They ridicule the now over 50 percent questioning his legitimacy in nationwide polls, using “birthers” as a dismissive term to ridicule faithful Constitutional Defenders. They call challengers “fringe groups, radicals, racial bigots (are you listening, Alan Keyes?), or treasonous, misguided people. For about twenty-five dollars Obama might have put this issue to rest by producing a “Certificate of Live Birth” for verification of authenticity, but instead chose to spend millions in legal fees (not counting Court costs) to prevent such disclosure, and now Hawaii cannot find any legitimate record of his birth. Suggestion: Try the name Soetoro, or maybe Kenya could help if “dual citizenship” is mentioned.
Bill O’Reilly of Fox News, who claims to be “fair and balanced,” was anything but when speaking on this issue. Using Megyn Kelly as a foil, he denigrated anyone questing Obama’s eligibility, using such arguments such as “If Hawaiian newspapers publish a birth announcement, it must be true,” a false statement which doesn’t even address the distinction between a “naturalized” and “natural-born” birth. Didn’t he know anyone could prepare a “Certification of Live Birth” (COLB) and use it to advise newspapers of a “birth”, or that a COLB can never be used to confirm a “Natural-born” citizenship status? Ignorance sometimes is excusable, but parading it as informed intelligence is not. O’Reilly also opined that Army Lt. Col. Terrence Lakin, a Bronze Star recipient of 18 years’ military service, including Afghanistan, who now sits in a prison for standing up for the Constitution, was politically motivated. I see…a dishonorable discharge, loss of salary, pension, all benefits and now serving six months in Leavenworth Prison. What a great resumé for someone seeking later political office! When O’Reilly ends his programs with “We’re looking out for you,” I wonder if Lt. Col. Lakin sometimes thinks “I wish that were true.” O’Reilly is a tall man but is he tall enough to stand up for a man he wrongly put down? Incidentally, my thanks go to those in the media who have faithfully reported this issue, particularly WorldNetDaily, the many radio and Internet organizations and all the individuals using these outlets for adding their voices to the rising crescendo demanding that truth and transparency be served.
Truth and Justice — Wayside Discards?
Copies of my eight above-mentioned letters were sent to all nine members of the Supreme Court. Not one responded or even acknowledged them (9 x 8 = 72 copies). Was it something I said? I can only pray that they draw from truths therein to honestly serve Justice. Sadly, however, recent lawsuits challenging Obama’s eligibility (Col. Gregory Hollister-Air Force-ret., and Commander Charles Kerchner (Navy-ret.) were dismissed by the Court without comment, apparently ignoring any challenges to Obama’s legitimacy by either plaintiff, both of whom had requested that Justices Sotomayor and Kagan recuse themselves from the Court deliberations since both were nominated to the Court by Obama and Justice Kagan formerly was the Solicitor General whose name appeared on Justice Department documents concerning Obama’s eligibility. Talk about having vested interest in a Court decision! If neither recused themselves nor did the Court, was Justice blind? No….it just shut its eyes. I still have faith in a Supreme Court but it’s not located on Earth.
“The Only People Who Don’t Want to Disclose the Truth are Those with Something to Hide.”
Those words were uttered by Obama and appeared in a Newsday newspaper on L.I., New York on August 22, 2010. Globe Magazine twice offered $100,000 to the United Negro College Fund if Obama disclosed the Hawaiian Birth Certificate to the Public. Both offers were ignored…something to hide? All other requests for disclosure of that document and school records, etc. were also denied….something more to hide? He who kept promising “transparency” to crowds now dreaded the consequences of keeping his promises so he simply removed all his records from the public eye, becoming the man who never was & taking the art of secrecy down to a new low. How can he possibly run for re-election in 2012 when the entire Country will be aware that his “Certification of Live Birth will still not be accepted as proof of “Natural-born” citizenship? He fooled the Nation once — never again!
In a previous letter I asked: “What Price The Presidency”? Obama has answered that question by the terrible treatment inflicted on Lt. Col. Lakin, as defined herein. For eighteen years Lt. Col. Lakin faithfully served the Army. He advanced to leading flight surgeon, charged with caring for Chief of Staff Casey’s pilots and air crews. Last year, when serious doubt intensified nationwide regarding Obama’s eligibility, the Colonel wrote to his superiors of his concerns. After one year with no response, he then wrote twice directly to Obama. Only after no responses (Obama’s trademark) did the Colonel refuse an order to return to Afghanistan and was then court-martialed and sentenced to prison. At his trial the presiding judge warned him not to ask for any Obama documents (birth certificate, etc.), for they might prove “embarrassing to the President.” Was this a trial or a lynching?
Fast forward to Christmas 2010 and picture a contrast in travel arrangements which took place. Obama was flown to Oahu for a vacation while Lt. Col. Lakin was taken (under guard) to Leavenworth, Kansas Federal Prison for incarceration. Two similar-sounding words but separated by a great chasm! One man deliberately sacrificed another man’s freedom, or was it a Country’s, to continue an unparalleled deception. America must correct this injustice. We must raise our voices for Truth and Vindication of Lt. Col. Lakin. He carried the banner as far as he could. Now it’s in our hands.
Special Note: Due to time and health restraints, I have never used my e-mails to recommend financial support for any cause, but now I make an exception. I once told Lt. Col. Lakin, who had thanked me for my assistance, that I and others simply pass ammunition up to him on the front line. Well, his front line is now his home and family. Below, you will note a website set up to help save his family from financial ruin because the man who once offered (with no preconditions) to meet with the Iranian President who had threatened to destroy our Country, had no time to respond to two letters from a “natural-born” American citizen and defender of our Country. Please help Lt. Col. Lakin in whatever manner you can.
