White House releases Obama’s birth certificate

President Obama released his original birth certificate Wednesday, saying the controversy surrounding the issue had become a “sideshow.”

Obama’s birth certificate
“We do not have time for this kind of silliness. We’ve got better stuff to do,” said Obama.
The surprise release follows recent and sustained remarks by businessman Donald Trump, among others, that raised doubts as to whether the president was born in the United States.
“Over the last two and half years, I have watched with amusement. I have been puzzled with the degree with which this thing just kept going,” Obama told reporters Wednesday.

Responding to the development, Trump said, “I have accomplished something nobody else has accomplished.”
“I want to look at it, but I hope it’s true,” he told reporters in New Hampshire. “He should have done it a long time ago. I am really honored to have played such a big role in hopefully getting rid of this issue.”
Other Republicans weigh in
Earlier Wednesday, White House Communications Director Dan Pfeiffer said the debate has been “really bad for the Republican Party.”
The so-called “birther” debate is “good politics” but “bad for the country,” said Pfeiffer.

In an interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper Monday, Trump repeated his doubts and said he had been told the certificate was “missing.”
A new CNN investigation revealed earlier this week what most analysts have been saying since the “birther” controversy erupted during the 2008 presidential campaign: Obama was born in Hawaii on August 4, 1961.
While the president has made light of the controversy, the question remained political red meat for some of his critics. A recent CNN/Opinion Research Corp. poll showed that nearly 75% of Americans believe Obama was definitely or probably born in the United States. More than four in 10 Republicans, however, believe he probably or definitely was not born in America.
The U.S. Constitution says only “natural born” citizens can become president – a vague clause that some members of the birther movement contend disqualifies Obama because, they insist, he was born outside the United States.
Skeptics contend, among other things, that Obama was born in his father’s home country of Kenya.

    it is interesting that after all this time the certificate surfaces,but with such worldly power what cant be proved on paper.Yet,this is far from the root of the problem this country faces with such demonic forces in charge.

    “A recent CNN/Opinion Research Corp. poll showed that nearly 75% of Americans believe Obama was definitely or probably born in the United States.”

    It’s to bad they did not add another percentage of how many Americans get their news directly from Comedy Central, and treat it as though it were gospel. Polls are nothing more then propaganda and a way of moving the masses in the direction they want them to go. So everyone knows public relations has been the new name for propaganda for quite some time.

    So this after spending millions to keep it locked and secured away from the public. He allowed a distinguished flight surgeon to go through a court martial. Does he hate the military that much? Remember one of the first things signed into law was to protect himself from having to disclose the long form birth certificate. Why did Hawaii just say by law the long form could never be released? Why did he waste taxpayer money in the case of
    Captain Pamela Barnett v Barack Obama by having two Assistant United States Attorneys ( AUSA DeJute and AUSA West ) argue against the release of his birth certificate ?

    “The U.S. Constitution says only “natural born” citizens can become president – a vague clause that some members of the birther movement contend disqualifies Obama because, they insist, he was born outside the United States.”

    As far as natural born citizen, have y’all notice how often you will see people change it to native born? Is their a difference? Isn’t this what Nancy Pelosi signed to as well? I know in the past Obama website says he is a native born citizen. You tend to not see this one dealt with in the mainstream television programming and popular call in talk shows . The Constitution of the United States explicitly states that “No person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty-five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.”

    My personal thoughts on the release is, his left hand is up to something. While everyone will be focused on the release; something of far more importance is probably being set up. Are we to believe after all the fighting, millions of dollars to keep the record sealed that Donald Trump simply forced him to show his hand? Finally this still is simply just another copy that has been released.

    Not the end of the story on the NEW BC.

    Not that it matters:
    The claim that “Natural Born Citizen” is a vague term is wrong.
    John Jay, the first Supreme Court Justice often referred to “Law of Nations or Principles of Natural Law”, a book written by a guy named Vattel in the mid 1700s. Benjamin Franklin ordered 3 copies at one point and said it was being “heavily used” during the Constitutional Conventions that formed our government.

    Vattel said that a Natural Born Citizen was “a person born in the country to two citizen parents of that country”.

    George Washington and John Jay decided it would be wise to include this as criteria for any future generation’s candidates for the presidency and pushed for the Amendment that created this criteria in the Constitution.

    Barak Obama does not meet this criteria NO MATTER WHERE he was born. His father was a British subject when he was born, and after he was born. He was a Kenyan citizen when he died…. but he was NEVER a U.S. citizen.

    The problem is that there are so many in the media, in state governments and in Congress that are guilty of gross incompetence and/or outright TREASON in this matter. THAT is the reason this will likely go no where.
    But the ignoring of the huge breach of Constitutional law pretty much negates the authority of the U.S. Constitution.

    Republicans caught in another lie.

    Alex Jones says fraud – they failed to merge / flatten the illustrator layers in the PDF and a scan won’t have or need layers. http://www.infowars.com/new-obama-birth-certificate-is-a-forgery/

    What lie? The vast majority have only asked to see the birth certificate. Asking a question is not a lie. Read some of the other responses to see who may be telling the lie…

  7. Jim, 28 April, 2011

    I have seen the “Layers” issue and, if it is true, it is such an obvious error that it would have to mean it was ALLOWED to slip through. That would mean either Obama’s people have double crossed him, or he/they want a crisis to develop over this issue.

    What sort of crisis would that be?
    There appears to be NO Constitutional remedy for an illegal candidate that is seated. Who then would the office fall to?

    The LEGAL ticket with the most votes was McCain/Palin. The next in line would not be Joe Biden… he was elected on an illegal ticket.
    Boehner would be next if this were a legal candidate that left office by impeachment or death. This is not the case however.
    Does the Supreme Court Justice take over?
    (Realize of course that all holders of cabinet positions would be illegal.)
    How about the strongest military officer…. just until we sort it out.
    This scenario would turn the United States into just another Banana Republic.

    Could also trigger a Constitutional Convention to sort out the issues.
    EVERYTHING… including the Bill of Rights would be on the table.
    Anyone want Reide and Boehner protecting our Bill of Rights?

    Problem #2
    The Congress would be so busy sorting this out I am SURE they would forget to repeal Obamacare. Obamacare by itself negates the congress and the U.S. Constitution.

    Certainly something to be in prayer for pray no matter how it turns out.

    Phil ask your mommy to explain to you what is a lie.

  9. joni, 29 April, 2011

    phil, republicans are liers as well so get over it

  10. bill, 29 April, 2011

    Obama will be elected again bacause republicans continue to lie and make fools of themselves.

  11. phil, 29 April, 2011

    I realize now, republicans are lying fools.

    It is good to see another Alex Jones listener in here 🙂 I do disagree with Alex Jone’s view on the Book of Revelation, but I do agree with his political awareness and economics. The biggest difference that Alex Jones and I disagree on is that he seems to believe that this evil can be defeated by the citizens becoming aware, but we know from reading the Bible that only Christ can defeat this evil.

    On a different note. President Obama appears to have some force behind his words. His words are empty and meaningless compared to his actions which speak louder; but yet the masses still cling onto anything the man says. It’s as if some dark and demonic force is behind the lies. Even when I listen to him speak, it’s very hard to not believe him. He’s very persuasive. Times like this we need to ask for discernment.
