CLAIMS “HAWAII SECRETARY OF STATE” DEEMED OBAMA BIRTH CERTIFICATE “GENUINE”
by Sharon Rondeau
(Apr. 2, 2014) — Last November, a group of volunteers traveled to Washington, DC to distribute “Sheriff’s Kits” produced by WheresObamasBirthCertificate.com to members of Congress about the findings of fraud and forgery of Obama’s long-form birth certificate and Selective Service registration form.
The birth certificate image was placed on the White House website on April 27, 2011, after mounting pressure from potential presidential candidate Donald Trump and others apparently compelled the White House to release what it claimed was proof of Obama’s birth in Hawaii and purported eligibility to serve as president of the United States.
Since at least 2004, various news articles and Obama himself claimed that he was born outside the country, some in Indonesia and others in Kenya. Article II, Section 1, clause 5 of the U.S. Constitution requires that the president and commander-in-chief be a “natural born Citizen.”
Progressive commentator Chris Matthews had stated on air in December 2007 that Obama was “born in Indonesia” and had “a Muslim background.” Obama’s official biography stated that he was “born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia and Hawaii” from 1991 until 2007, when it was changed to say that he was “born in Hawaii” just after he declared his candidacy for the presidency. The change in Obama’s life narrative was explained by his then-literary agent as “a fact-checking error,” although authors customarily supply their own biographies to their literary agents prior to the publication of their work.
While debate continues about the meaning of the term “natural born Citizen,” history demonstrates that the Founding Fathers wished to ensure that foreign allegiances were not permitted into the office of the chief executive of the nation. Therefore, the citizenship of the person’s parents was as important as the birthplace, if not more so. In the 1875 case of Minor v. Happersett, the U.S. Supreme Court stated in its opinion that “it was never doubted” that someone born inside the United States to two U.S.-citizen parents was a “natural born Citizen.” Three other cases also from the 19th century dealt with citizenship issues.
In the 21st century, U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Clarence Thomas told a congressional committee that the high court was “evading” defining “natural born Citizen” after questions arose about the constitutional eligibility of both Barack Obama and Sen. John McCain, the latter of whom was born in Panama to two U.S.-citizen parents, one of whom was serving as an admiral in the U.S. Navy.
While McCain’s citizenship was scrutinized by the U.S. Senate in 2008, resulting in Senate Resolution 511 “declaring” him a “natural born Citizen,” Obama’s status was not. Obama’s claimed father was never a U.S. citizen. In the treatise “The Law of Nations” by Emmerich de Vattel, which was heavily referenced by the Framers, Vattel states that a “natural born Citizen” is one whose “parents” were citizens of the country.
Children of foreign diplomats born in the United States are not awarded U.S. citizenship.
Since 2008, major media, “conservative” radio show hosts, and political figures refused to discuss the eligibility issue, whether by choice, coercion, or some other motive. In concert with the media blackout, Obama sycophants and supporters have ridiculed, threatened, and hacked the websites and online accounts of anyone seeking the truth about Obama’s background and eligibility to serve.
A six-month investigation by the Maricopa County, AZ Cold Case Posse declared Obama’s two “official” documents “computer-generated forgeries” on March 1, 2012, after which the media failed in its duty to investigate and report those findings to the public. Following a second press conference in July of that year, the media vilified the messengers, Cold Case Posse lead investigator Mike Zullo and Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, asking deprecatingly, “How do you expect any of us to believe any of this?” after some of the methods and sources were revealed.
Jeff Harrison was one of the volunteers who went to Washington in the fall to distribute the Sheriff’s Kits, which contain a full-length presentation by Zullo of how the team arrived at its conclusion that Obama’s documentation consists of “computer-generated forgeries.” Since that time, Harrison and others, including WheresObamasBirthCertificate.com founder Mike Volin, have followed up with those in Congress who received the kits to inquire as to their apparent lack of action on what could be the largest political conspiracy and cover-up in U.S. history.
Harrison made certain that Toomey was one of those who received a Sheriff’s Kit, having told The Post & Email, “with delivering 3 kits, Toomey did not acknowledge that he received an Affidavit nor that he even looked at it? He received one Affidavit by hand and in person. The other two Affidavits were given to his staff members and I have a witness to each of those deliveries that they were delivered.”
The affidavit to which Harrison referred is one sworn to and submitted in an Alabama court case by Zullo containing more than 200 points demonstrating that Obama’s documentation is fraudulent. zullo-affidavit AL Sup CT
On March 18, Toomey finally provided a response to Harrison on his receipt of the Sheriff’s Kit and affidavit. Although Toomey’s letter reiterates some of the standard responses issued by many members of Congress to their constituents who have questioned Obama’s constitutional eligibility over the last five years, it contains the false statement that “the Hawaii Secretary of State has confirmed that President Obama’s birth certificate is genuine…,” while in reality, the Hawaii Secretary of State has never spoken on the authenticity of any of Obama’s proffered “documentation.”
By statute, the lieutenant governor of Hawaii also serves as the Secretary of State, while in most states, the two positions are distinct. In fact, the former lieutenant governor under current Governor Neil Abercrombie, Brian E. Schatz, was head of the Hawaii Democrat Party in 2008 and did not sign the Certificates of Nomination certifying that Barack Obama was constitutionally qualified to seek the office of the presidency, and statutorily-required wording stating that the candidate(s) were qualified was omitted.
Abercrombie appointed Schatz to fill the remainder of the term vacated by the late Sen. Daniel Inouye, and Schatz is seeking election in his own right in November.
In his letter to Harrison, Toomey could have been referring to two statements made by then-Hawaii Department of Health Director Chiyome Fukino, who on July 29, 2009, asserted that “I, Dr. Chiyome Fukino, director of the Hawaii State Department of Health, have seen the original vital records maintained on file by the Hawaii State Department of Health verifying Barack Hussein Obama was born in Hawaii and is a natural-born American citizen. I have nothing further to add to this statement or my original statement issued in October 2008 over eight months ago….”
Chiyome’s later description of Obama’s purported long-form birth certificate to MSNBC does not match its actual appearance.
Toomey also referred to a Senate resolution passed in 2009 congratulating Hawaii on 50 years of statehood which tangentially mentioned that Obama was born there, although the resolution has been touted as “affirmation” of Obama’s claim.
Of Toomey’s letter, Harrison said:
Toomey‘s letter is somewhat a standard reply of talking points. He states evidence is “purported” yet has neglected to study it. Further, he states that the courts have rejected claims, but he did not state why. Some of the ruling have been for some of the most silly reasons such as lack of standing and lack of jurisdiction. While Senator Toomey had stated in his letter to me that before he was elected the senate “unanimously” adopted a resolution that Obama was born in Hawaii, however, he neglected to comment on whether Obama is a “Natural Born Citizen” thus being qualified. In response to Toomey‘s verification of the purported Honolulu birth announcement, that is not verification of a birth, nowhere would that be accepted as proof, just try to take that to get a Social Security Number to the Social Security Office for the birth of a child or try to enlist into the military and see that that would be rejected. I as an enlisted Marine and I as a janitor working for the government I was much more vetted than the Commander in Chief. My idea is this, let’s do a Police Background Check and an updated spot Secret Clearance on Mr. Obama and see what happens. What is good for the geese (an enlisted member of the military) should also be good for the goose (The Commander in Chief). Toomey and Congress need to grow a spine and investigate Mr. Obama. According to Lt. Zullo in his Affidavit, it states, “beyond probable cause”.
Harrison responded to Toomey’s letter with a letter of his own dated March 29 in which he stated that he is “disgusted” at Toomey’s dismissal of the “constitutional crisis” which Obama’s fraudulent documentation has perpetrated on the nation. “Those who neglect this will be held accountable,” he wrote toToomey.
In addition to visiting Washington to distribute Sheriff’s Kits, Harrison devised a flyer which he has taken door-to-door in his neighborhood to report the findings of the posse. After the trip to Washington, he mailed nine more kits to key congressmen. He has appeared on several radio shows speaking on the topic and has his own page at the WheresObamasBirthCertificate website.
In the near future, Sheriff Joe Arpaio is expected to make a major announcement about a separate investigation his office launched stemming from the Cold Case Posse’s probe of the birth certificate and Selective Service form. Last Thursday, a video was released as a prelude to the upcoming presser.
