Obama’s Certificate of Live Birth (COLB) is not a birth certificate

There are two sides to every story.
For the last five years, so-called “birthers” have claimed that Barack Obama is ineligible to be the President of the United States because he is a foreigner. This article will examine those claims.

The Birth Certificate
Originally, presidential candidate and then-Sen. Barack Obama offered a Hawaiian Certificate of Live Birth as proof of his country of origin. Opponents claim: a Certificate of Live Birth (COLB) is not a birth certificate. It was further argued that Obama’s father’s race is listed as “African”, and not “Negro”, the word used in 1961. (The obvious meaning: the COLB was created recently.) Opponents hired experts, who said the COLB contained abnormalities indicating forgery. It is fairly easy to create with Photoshop. Advocates claimed that a Certificate of Live Birth was enough to identify Barack Obama and any argument to the contrary is based on racism.
Advocates further argue that on 8-13-61, Barack Obama’s birth announcement was printed in two newspapers: the “Honolulu Star-Bulletin” and the “Honolulu Sunday Advertiser”. Opponent’s counter this was automatically done after his mother registered his birth upon her return from Kenya.
April 27, 2011. Pres. Barack Obama releases his long-form birth certificate. Advocates say this is the end of the birther issue.
March 1, 2012 – Obama opponent Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s (Maricopa County, AZ) press conference. After a six month examination by Arpaio’s own chosen experts, he concludes that the birth certification is a forgery. (The certificate contains numerous abnormalities, i.e., Photoshop layering, different fonts and numbering, color variations, etc.) The media have, for the most part, dismissed Arpaio as a “birther with no credibility.”
IMPORTANT. Whether you believe Obama is a foreigner or not, the 2011 release of his birth certificate proves that he was not “vetted” by Congress in 2008. Sen. John Cain was “vetted” because of his birth in the Panama Canal Zone, then a U.S. territory.

Kenya or Hawaii?
Opponents claim: Obama’s mother, Stanley Ann Dunham, gave birth to Barack Obama II while visiting his father’s relatives in Mombasa, Kenya. Sarah Hussein Obama, Obama’s grandmother, verifies this in an audio recording.
Advocates claim: Sarah Obama’s statements were mistranslated. Opponents hired language experts who said they were not.
Advocates further argue that advanced age has affected Sarah Obama’s brain.
IMPORTANT. Most of Obama’s mother’s passport records are not available for examination. The U.S. State Department’s claim: they were destroyed sometime in the 1980’s in a space-saving purge.
Contradicting itself, the State Department’s website also claims passport records are saved from 1925 until this present time.

Natural versus Native Born
Article 2, Section 1 of the Constitution declares that to qualify for the office of the Presidency, you must be a natural-born citizen.
What is the difference between natural and native born?
Native-born: born in the USA to foreign-born parents. If Obama were born in Kenya, he could still qualify as a U.S. citizen if his mother had been 19 years of age. She was 18. (i.e., Stanley Ann Dunham had not lived in the USA for five years past her 14th birthday to qualify.) This assumes Barack Obama II was born in Kenyan and not Hawaii.
Natural-born means born in the USA to parents who are U.S. citizens.

Two Hospitals?
Obama’s claim: he was born at Kapi’olani Medical Center in Honolulu, Hawaii (8-4-61.) Opponents claim: Prior to January 2009, all previous articles on Obama list his hospital of birth as Queen’s Medical Center.
Why the discrepancy?
Websites which contained the “Queen’s Medical Center” info were scrubbed, and then replaced with “Kapi’olani”.
Opponents argue this is further proof of an Obama deception, and further allege the President paid off the Kapi’olani hospital in the guise of a donation.


The Move to Indonesia
Stanley Ann Dunham (now divorced) remarries in 1965 to Lolo Soetoro, an Indonesian. The Soetoro’s moved to Indonesia (1967 – 1971.) Initially, Obama’s name is changed to Barack Hussein Obama Soebarkah. (Soebarkah being a derivative name of Soetoro.) Is this proof of an adoption? If so, why is Obama hiding it? Obama’s name is changed again to Barry Soetoro.
Obama attends two different schools, one Muslim (the Basuki School) and one Catholic – St. Francis of Assisi. His school records list Obama’s (now Barry Soetoro) nationality as “Indonesian” and his religion as “Islam”. These facts point to our current President being adopted and his name and nationality being changed. Obama denies it.
In 1968, Stanley Ann Dunham had her son taken off her passport. Opponents claim: Obama received an Indonesian passport to replace it, further proof he is an Indonesian citizen. (Indonesia does not allow dual-citizenship status.)
Also, Obama travelled to Indonesia and Pakistan in 1981, presumably with an Indonesian passport. It would have been much easier to gain entry with an Indonesian passport, rather than an American one.
Obama advocates claim: no adoption papers have been shown. Also, living in Indonesia for four and a half years does not make Obama an Indonesian or a Muslim.

Connecticut Social Security Card
For whatever reason, Pres. Obama uses a Connecticut Social Security Card, despite the fact there is no proof he ever worked or resided there. Obama first job was at a Baskin-Robbins ice cream shop in Hawaii (1975.)
A citizen of the U.S. is allowed only one Social Security number per lifetime.
Obama opponents brought the matter before Judge Royce Lamberth who dismissed the case because “the President has a right to his privacy.”

Records Sealed
Throughout the years, Obama has spent a great deal of time, money and effort having his past officially closed. His sealed records include-Birth and possible adoption records (Hawaiian Dept. of Health) Passport and Travel Records Medical Records Missing articles written for colleges and universities State Senate Records Multiple School Records including: Punahou Private School in Hawaii Occidental College, Los Angeles, CA Columbia University (There is some doubt Obama ever attended this school. Few witnesses remember him attending. Obama’s explanation is that he spent most of his time as a recluse in the library.) Harvard Law School.


Opponents claim: Obama received multiple scholarships as a “foreign student.”
Oct. 24, 2012. Billionaire Donald Trump offers 5 million dollars to Obama’s favorite charity, if he’ll release his college/passport records and applications. The mainstream media dismisses the challenge as a “publicity stunt.”
Advocates claim: Obama’s scholarships were received because of his “high grades”. There is no proof of his “high grades” because all of his records have been sealed.


It can be argued that Pres. Obama can, if he has the money and wherewithal, legally seal his records, but this contradicts his claim that his Presidency would be the most “transparent” in U.S. history. Obama’s life is more like a prism, changing colors and lights whenever you turn it.
Advocates will continue to maintain that anyone who opposes Obama is a “racist.”Racism is a two-way street; to discount a presidential candidate because he is old and white (McCain) or rich and white (Romney) equals discrimination by all definitions of logic. Maybe in 2008, logic died.

      Do you realize this video to which you link is a pack of total lies? Question: Are you simply a useful dupe or are you completely aware you are spreading lies?

    At the age of 7, Barack Obama was adopted by his stepfather Lolo Soetoro. (Obama’s stepsister admits that Soetoro was his stepfather.) This adoption makes Obama an Indonesian citizen. Even if Obama changed back to being an American, he would be NATURALIZED and not a natural born citizen as required by the Constitution. Obama’s presidency is invalid and illegal.

      You are completely incorrect. Even if Lolo had adopted Obama, a claim for which you have ZERO evidence, it is a complete legal impossibility for hat to cause Obama to lose his birthright natural born US citizenship. This is not even remotely open to dispute. Simply, US law makes that impossible. Minors cannot lose their US citizenship. It can only be done once they reach adulthood, through an affirmative renunciation. Do you know you’re lying or have you merely been duped by others?

    None of your claims in this opinion piece is actually correct. They are falsehoods, repeatedly debunked, but which you’re ignoring due to your political bias. Obama has not sealed anything nor has he spent millions doing any such thing. The COLB is a legal birth certificate. Hawaii has publicly authenticated its records. The matter is closed. And no, McCain was not vetted in 2008. You say he was born in the Canal Zone, but you have less proof of that than you do of Obama’s proven Hawaiian birth. It’s so sad that people with preconceived conclusions based on their political desires alone are impervious to actual facts.

    Our questions regarding his birth and his status to be President are irrelevant now! Still it galls all of us to be dumped into the liberal nut camp who believe in every conspiracy theory under the sun and then some. It makes no since at all not to have an original birth certificate or to get a copy from a state; I can get one today if I want and so can you! I don’t know what to think on this issue because so many misleading and false statements have been made by Obama himself and his own family on just about everything regarding his past! At best we will find out that he defrauded the American tax payer into paying for him as a foreign exchange student.
    However, how do you not supply your university papers or grades, hold important positions in the student government, and have no one remember you?
    As for the certificate of live birth, people clam that its out of numerical order and has computer fonts while the nurse remembers the original having substantial writing on it? Never mind that many also say she traveled not even two weeks before giving birth in a hospital that used a different name? Or came from a country that did not exist before 1963? What is going on?
    By the way, the White House supplied only a copy of a certificate of birth and that newspaper listing could have been done by just calling, hardly a legal document!
    So yes I have many doubts about all of this still and will until official records are released!
    As fore being a Conservative, guilty as charged! Still did not the Democrats demand a hearing into john Mccain’s eligibility because he was the son of a US service man born in Panama and did he not supply the needed documents?
    If he has a Birth Certificate or one is on record, then why not make it public, this makes no since at all!

    The answer to the meaning of natural in natural born citizen can be found in Shakespeare. King Henry V: “Were all thy children kind and natural?”

    Another hint look to Wordsworth: “Yearning to be with her natural kind.’

    Who were Jefferson’s natural kind? Who are Obama’s.

    the argument of obama being kenyan or american born isnt that much important, of significance is the trust and believe americans and the whole world have for him that he is the right man to lead america

    So basically the author strung together all the thoroughly debunked accusations and theories in a desperate attempt to be believed. I guess he’s hoping he can win the argument by the sheer weight of B.S. involved.

    I’ve always found it funny that there isn’t just one birther conspiracy, but rather dozens of separate theories that often contradict each other and seem to change almost daily. You would think that if they were based in fact, as they contend, there would only be one.

    However, I guess the conspiracy theorists wouldn’t like that. It would make it to easy to finally end this nonsense. Having several dozen separate theories means when one gets so thoroughly debunked that people start laughing at the mention of it, they can switch to another theory.

    To this end, I think I’ll help them out a bit. Here’s a new one:
    The COLB, the newspaper announcements, and everything else are real, BUT they were planted there by Obama HIMSELF. When he decided he wanted to be president (Or more precisely, when George Soros, the liberal media, the east coast elites, and the ghost of Frank Marshall Davis decided he should be president), he got funding from socialist European countries to build a time machine. This explains the European Debt Crisis because we all know time machines aren’t cheap. He then used this time machine to go back to 1961 and convince his mother not to board a plane and let him be born in Kenya.
    Unfortunately, he wasn’t able to. She was determined to sneak aboard a plane days before he was due, have the baby, and come back before she was missed. She had to sneak aboard the plane because she didn’t want any record of her going to Kenya. Her goal was for her son to have the Socialist beliefs that being born in Kenya imparts despite it being a very capitalist country.
    Failing his initial mission of preventing her from going to Kenya he was forced to resort to plan ‘B’. He went back in time an additional 12 months, found a suitable women who looked like his mother, courted her, convinced her to change her name to Ann Dunham, and got her pregnant 3 months later. All on schedule for a birth on the correct day nine months later. Unfortunately, it was a girl. He went back and tried again, this time with success! After that it was easy. Give his son his name to acquire the necessary birth records. Drop him off at the closest church as an unwanted baby and convince the real Ann Dunham to go along with the story.
    It’s all so obvious!

    All he has to do is unseal all these records. Our treasonous president instead spends millions keeping it all hidden… that’s all anyone with half a brain needs to know. The ones without half a brain voted for him. America is gone……

    What a retarded article

    The loonies are still around I see. All of this has been debunked already, many times. Too bad some folks can’t get past the hate.

  11. Greg Cunningham   October 31, 2012 at 6:04 pm

    The bottom line is that he was elected by the people. Right or wrong the people wanted him in office and got what they wanted. It’s a little late to cry foul now!

    Re: “t was further argued that Obama’s father’s race is listed as “African”, and not “Negro”, ”

    Answer. The explanation is that Hawaii did not stand over people’s shoulders and insist on the word that had to be used to describe their race, nor was there any check list of races. People could use whatever word that they wanted, and the word that African exchange students generally used to describe their race in the 1960s was AFRICAN. (And that was the word that the colonial authorities in The Kenya Colony, which BTW, did exist in 1961, used to describe the black residents of their colony too; they were called “Africans.”)

    So that is the explanation, that Hawaii allowed people to use whatever word that they wanted, and “African” was a normal word that an African exchange student and a resident of a British colony where blacks were called “Africans” would use.

      Rumors are going around that you are Ted Kaczynski sister – Theodora – it’s true, isn’t it.

      It would explain that you’re as crazy as he was.

      • ehancock1   October 30, 2012 at 4:22 pm

        Re “rumors.” You are the sort that believe created “rumors.” You are a sad example of why the National review, Ann Coulter and Glenn Beck all call birthers CRAZY. There are rumors going round that you are actually Charles Manson, writing from prison.

        Notice that I do not give opinions or call names; I simply report the FACTS:

        Officials of both political parties say that Obama has a birth certificate on record at the Hawaii department of health. This is further confirmed by the public Index Data file, which says that there is a BC for Obama filed in 1961, and it is further confirmed by the birth notices sent to the newspapers of Hawaii in 1961 by the DOH of Hawaii. Only the DOH could send those notices because the section of the newspaper was called “Health Bureau Statistics”—and both the papers and the DOH confirm this fact. And in 1961 the DOH only sent out notices to people that it issued birth certificates to, and in 1961 Hawaii was not allowed to issue birth certificates to children who were not born in Hawaii.

        Another confirmation that Obama’s original birth certificate exists in the files in Hawaii is the short-form birth certificate issued to Obama. The short form is generated by a clerk looking into the files and reading off the data on the document there and entering it into a computer form that generates the short form birth certificate. Obviously a document has to exist in the files for that to take place.

        And Hawaii is thousands of miles from any foreign country, and there is no evidence that Obama’s mother traveled out of the country in 1961, which would have been extremely rare late in pregnancy in those days. (And the government of Kenya said that it did an investigation, and he certainly was NOT born there.) Obama’s Kenyan grandmother never said that Obama was born in Kenya. She said repeatedly on the taped call that he was born in Hawaii, and she said in another interview that the first that her family had heard of Obama’s birth was in a letter from Hawaii.)
