“I WILL KEEP YOUR THOUGHTS IN MIND”
from Michael Jackson
(Jul. 5, 2013) — [Editor’s Note: Mr. Jackson sent a letter to Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) regarding allegations of fraud, forgery and other crimes on May 28, 2013. The letter below is the response he received from Paul’s office a month later.
The letter sent to Paul is here: Rand Paul 5-28-13]
On March 1, 2012, the Maricopa County, AZ Cold Case Posse declared that there was probable cause to believe that the long-form birth certificate image to which Paul refers in his response below is a “computer-generated forgery.” In a second press conference on July 17, 2012, the posse stated that the standard of probable cause had been exceeded by the evidence gathered showing the image to be a forgery and called for a congressional investigation.
Last week, Cold Case Posse lead investigator Mike Zullo stated that Rep. Steve Stockman (R-TX 36) has indicated an interest in reviewing all of the evidence and possibly taking further action.
Former Rep. Allen West, who originally told Zullo he would not assist in publicizing the forgery, named Obama a “usurper and charlatan” earlier this week on his Facebook page but did not elaborate.
Obama has never explained his known aliases of “Barry Soetoro,” “Soebarkah,” and “Barack Hussein Obama Jr.”

Dear Mr. Jackson,
Thank you for taking the time to contact me regarding the Constitutional requirements to be President of the United States. I appreciate hearing your thoughts on this issue.
As you may know, the Constitution in Article II, Section 1 states the requirements needed for the president to take the oath of office. Specifically Article II, Section 1 states a person must be at least 35 years old, have been a resident within the United States for 14 years, and be a natural born citizen.
During the 111th Congress, Representative Bill Posey (R-FL) introduced legislation, H.R. 1503, to amend the Federal Election Campaign Act of 1971 to require a presidential candidate to present their birth certificate and all other documentation necessary to meet the qualifications for eligibility of the presidency under the Constitution. H.R. 1503 was referred to the House Administration Committee, but did not pass through the committee process before conclusion of the 111th Congress. In response to questions regarding his qualifications, President Obama presented his long form birth certificate on April 27, 2011.
As a newly elected Senator of the 112th Congress, I was unable to participate in the committee process for this piece of legislation. Rest assured as this issue continues to be debated in the Senate, I will keep your thoughts in mind.
Rand Paul, MD
United States Senator
