Dr. James David Manning will hold a citizens' grand jury trial at his church in Harlem, NY regarding the authenticity of Barack Hussein Obama's long-form birth certificate

(Aug. 7, 2011) — Dr. James David Manning, who convened a citizens’ grand jury trial in Harlem, New York in May 2010 on Obama’s background and specifically, whether or not he attended Columbia University as he has claimed, will hold a similar trial beginning on October 24, 2011 regarding Obama’s long-form birth certificate presented to the public on April 27, 2011.

Manning is pastor of the ATLAH Worldwide Missionary Church, whose mission statement is here.  He hosts his own radio show, The Manning Report, which can be heard Monday through Friday from 3:00 to 6:00 p.m. EDT.  The “ATLAH Times” contains links to timely news reports, Twitter activity and editorials from various internet sites.

Manning has questioned Obama’s citizenship given his British father, whose children were reportedly governed by the British Nationality Act of 1948.  Obama II has also widely been reported to have been adopted by Lolo Soetoro, a citizen of Indonesia.  Manning stated that he is bringing forward charges against Obama based on 18 USC, Sections 911, 1001 and other statutes.  There are a total of nine charges which Manning plans to raise.

The trial will be carried out by what Manning refers to as the “Trust But Verify Commission,” and the date of October 24, 2011 was announced on July 5.  Manning stated that Obama has presented not one, but two forgeries representing “birth certificates,” referencing the Certification of Live Birth (COLB) released in 2008 and the second image released on April 27, 2011.

Various computer and software professionals have declared one or both images to be forgeries.  Two of those experts plan to accompany Atty. Orly Taitz to the Hawaii Department of Health on August 8, 2011 to inspect the document the department allegedly possesses as part of Taitz’s discovery in her case against the Social Security Administration, Taitz v. Astrue.

The Post & Email presented the transcripts of the first trial, the official verdict, and eyewitness reports from attendee Miki Booth.  Possible presidential candidate Cody Robert Judy also attended and testified.

Dr. Manning stated that he felt his first trial was “a great success.”  He told us that when he first saw Obama present the image of his long-form birth certificate in April, he was “99.9% sure that it was a forged document.”  He mentioned that several analysts had almost immediately proclaimed it a forgery.  “Now that he has presented what has to be his ultimate documentation, the verification of that is integral,” Manning said.  He stated that the image was presented in a “circus atmosphere of the media” without independent verification of its authenticity.

Manning stated that Obama “has corrupted the entire Congress, the courts and the media…and, for that matter, most of America,” which provides Manning with a “spiritual reason” for holding the new grand jury trial.  “Nobody in Congress will touch the matter, mainly because  Fox News trotted in about midway in this process, pulling out the big guns, Bill O’Reilly and Glenn Beck, and told the American people asking the question that Obama was ‘legit’ and then interposed the activity of the Tea Party as an alternative to attack Obama on his policies.  Then Fox News gave the Tea Party ultimate media coverage.  It was unprecedented how they were covered.”

The Post & Email asked Manning if he had specific knowledge that the Tea Party had purposely focused on Obama’s policies instead of the eligibility issue, and he replied,  “I attended the 9-12 event in Washington in 2009.  I was invited to be one of the keynote speakers shortly after Obama’s inauguration.  Three weeks or so before the event took place, I was called and told that my invitation had been withdrawn because I had continued to push the “birth certificate” issue, and that was not an issue the Tea Party Express wanted to involve itself in.  They canceled my speaking engagement that day.  That’s one proof.  Amy Kremer’s group had invited me and then disinvited me.  I stood right near the stage the entire time, and Amy herself came over and said to me, ‘Just keep doing what you’re doing,’ but that her group couldn’t present it,” he said.

“Beck had come out and bashed “birthers” as being out of touch, and O’Reilly came out and actually said that he had seen the birth certificate before Obama released his so-called ‘long-form.’  So Fox News conspired to make the ‘birthers’ look as if they were loons, whack jobs and racists, and touted that Obama was eligible.  I think that some people in the Tea Party who believed that Obama was not eligible thought it would be destructive to have him removed from office.  Instead, it has corrupted all three branches of government.  Conspiring to cover up an issue as grave as this has opened the door to blackmail and become a snowball of events that is not good for our nation,” Manning contended.

Dr. Manning stated that after the first trial, he filed criminal complaints with the Attorney General of New York, the New York State Bar Association, the U.S. Supreme Court, and many other officials.  “The only people who responded were the New York State Board of Regents, which wrote back on several occasions saying that it was not their job to demonstrate whether or not Columbia was at fault.  They also questioned our findings because they came from a citizens’ grand jury.”

Manning stated that he was surprised that no one in the media submitted the April 27 image to forensic examination, including Donald Trump, who had attracted much media attention about Obama’s failure to produce an original birth certificate earlier in the year.  “It would not be quite as ludicrous if there had not been so many questions about the person who occupies the most powerful position on the planet.  The people who are strong ‘birthers” don’t have access to the media anymore,” Manning said.

The Post & Email asked if the format of the October trial will be the same as the May 2010 Columbia Sedition and Treason trial, and he responded, “It will be a carbon copy of it except for the march around Columbia.”  Manning said subpoenas will be sent and witnesses called to testify.  He plans on releasing the list of witnesses shortly before the trial commences.

Manning mentioned the recent Bond v. United States ruling as it relates to the Tenth Amendment, which he said provides the basis for the trial.

In conclusion, Manning told us, “I think this matter will come to light.  The Supreme Court has on record that I filed that transcript with them.  They have to be informed as a matter of national security.  I know that should this nation proceed much further, historically, this issue will come out.  So many people have capitulated that that has given Obama dictatorial and tyrannical powers that he is going to start using shortly.  There is going to be a move toward revolution in an irresponsible way.”

Update, August 24, 2011:  Dr. James David Manning is reporting that the birth certificate trial has been moved back to May 14, 2012 to allow for more time to prepare charges against the major media companies which represented the Certification of Live Birth and the long-form image as authentic by the media.  Manning said that he plans to prosecute the media companies for fraud, mail fraud, wire fraud, conspiracy, sedition, and treason.
