WHO IS OBAMA, AND WHERE WAS HE BORN?
by Sharon Rondeau
(May 18, 2012) — On May 17, 2012, Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett stated in an interview with radio show host Mike Broomhead that he considers it his responsibility to ascertain that all candidates are eligible for the offices they seek in his state. He said he received over 1200 emails from Arizona residents following the press conference held by Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio on March 1 which declared that Obama’s long-form birth certificate “might be fraudulent,” according to Bennett.
Bennett said he learned from one of the citizens who contacted him that Hawaii has a “verification” process whereby the Hawaii Department of Health could be asked to verify whether or not it has on file a document that contained certain “elements” such as doctor’s name, parents’ name, birth hospital name, date of birth, etc.
In regard to “letters of verification” pertaining to vital statistics, the Hawaii Department of Health website states:
Upon request, a letter of verification attesting to the existence of a requested record on file with the Department of Health may be issued. Instructions for applying for letters of verification are included in the next section and immediately follow the set of instructions on applying for certified copies. The same eligibility requirements apply for both ceritified copies and verification letters. [sic]
Bennett said that his office verifies whether or not a candidate meets the qualifications for the office sought based on age, residence and registered- voter requirements and that the office of President of the United States is the only public position which requires candidates to be a “natural born Citizen” as required by the U.S. Constitution. “I believe that the president was born in Hawaii; at least I hope so,” Bennett said, referring to Obama and denying being a “birther.”
During the interview, Bennett said that there was a difference between a “natural born Citizen” and “a regular citizen.”
Bennett stated that he downloaded the proper form from the Hawaii Department of Health website and submitted it. He said that Hawaii responded with a request for proof that he is responsible for overseeing the elections process in Arizona and that he complied with their request, describing the responsibilities of his office as a “legitimate government function.” Bennett told Broomhead that he has been waiting for “eight weeks” for a response to his verification request, which “makes me wonder if we have to take it to another level.”
“If Hawaii can’t or won’t verify a very simple request which is contemplated in their own states laws…if they’re not willing or can’t do that…we might have some other thinking to do,” Bennett said. He is considering requiring all presidential candidates to submit a “certified copy of their birth certificate,” although he added, “But I don’t want to do that.”
Bennett described his request of Hawaii as coming from “another state legitimate government official” which should have been honored. “All they have to do is email me back saying ‘yes’ and it’s over. But they haven’t for eight weeks, and I’m just stunned that they’re making it so hard,” Bennett said.
Broomhead asked Bennett if he intended to keep Obama’s name off the Arizona ballot for November, to which Bennett responded, “That’s possible.”
If previous Hawaii officials had stated that Obama’s birth certificate was held there, why will current officials say nothing? Not only do questions exist about his purported long-form birth certificate, but also the short-form “Certification of Live Birth” which appeared on the internet in June 2008.
If Obama had provided the biographical sketch to his Dystel & Goderich in 1991 in advance of the publication of Dreams From My Father stating that he was born in Kenya, how, then, did he come to be born in Hawaii? Was it really the responsibility of his publisher to “fact-check” his biographical statements?
Is there a connection between a traffic accident in Hawaii in 1982 and the record of the allegedly deceased man in the accident, “Bari M. Shabazz,” altered 21 years later, to “Barack H. Obama?” Is Obama’s hidden past a question of hidden identity?
On May 17, The Post & Email placed a call to Matthew Roberts, Director of Communications for Bennett’s office, for a statement as to the what information he requested from Hawaii and whether or not he received a response prior to locating the above-referenced interview and the biographical pamphlet released by Breitbart.com which stated in 1991 and was maintained as accurate until 2004 that Obama was born in the east African country of Kenya. Having received no response, we contacted his office again at 1:45 p.m. EDT and left a message with Andrea, assistant to Bennett, the same individual with whom we had spoken yesterday.
Dr. Jerome Corsi has agreed with Obama’s promotional pamphlet which states he was born in Kenya. Even prior to the March 1 Maricopa County, AZ press conference, it was determined by some experts that Obama’s long-form birth certificate was a forgery. Kapiolani Medical Center, which Obama has identified as the “hospital of MYs birth,” will not confirm that that is so. The mainstream media has ignored the questions about Obama’s background since he announced his presidential campaign in early February 2007 as well as the claim by members of the Kenyan Parliament that Obama had been born in their country.
If Obama was born in Kenya, does that render him ineligible for the presidency, or are other factors involved?
There have been indications that Obama does not know U.S. history well. Yahoo! News, which has demonstrated that it is influenced by the Obama regime, published a statement from one of the owners of Obama’s publishing house, Dystel & Goderich, in which Miriam Goderich claimed that she made a “fact-checking” error in stating that Obama was born in Kenya. But where would she have obtained that information?
Breitbart reported that the statement about Obama’s Kenyan birth remained on the Dystel & Goderich website until 2007. Obama announced that he was running for president in February of that year. An internet archive shows that on April 21, 2007, D&G had changed its biographical entry on Obama to state that he was born in Hawaii. Why?
Was Obama “born in Kenya” for political expediency, a perceived sense of exoticism, or to attend college on foreign scholarships? Was he then “born in Hawaii” so that he could presumably be considered a “natural born Citizen” in order to run for president?
The list of clients at D&G whose names begin with “O” includes a listing for Obama, whose biography is the shortest on the page. Dystel & Goderich’s submission guidelines for non-fiction works require that “a more formal narrative Bio of the author” be submitted along with “sample material” from an “annotated table of contents” as well as “support material.”
Why does Breitbart.com deny being a “birther” when the significant detail of Obama’s birthplace is in question? Are we not all seeking the truth about “Barack Hussein Obama?” Do these revelations indicate that “the birthers” were right after all?
The mainstream media is now suggesting that Goderich’s “mistake” was the reason for fueling the “birthers.”
The Post & Email has never shied away from seeking the truth about Obama and corruption in government because we have no agenda except the truth.
