Barack Obama finally released his long form birth certificate today. Hallelujah. If Obama’s goals were to quiet things down with the release of his birth certificate, it isn’t going to happen.
Already, there are stories out in the Internet that the birth certificate released is a fake. Could it be fake? Anything is possible and certainly there are a lot of people with the skills to create a faked document, such as a birth certificate. But in a case like this, I am reminded of the words of Benjamin Franklin, who once said; “three people can keep a secret… if two of them are dead.”
If the birth certificate the White House offered today is a fake, then we are watching the greatest political conspiracy since Watergate and if that is the case, forget impeachment. Joe Biden and the cabinet just need to invoke the 25th Amendment and send Obama off to a nice quiet place where they have long white jackets, nice men and women and the birds are chirping.
The release of this seemingly innocuous document today strikes at the heart of a deeper question. If this is all there is to it, why didn’t Obama release this two and a half years ago. How much money has Obama spent on lawyers to keep this under wraps? I spoke with a liberal reporter today who told me it was a myth that Obama had spent two million dollars on lawyers to keep the birth certificate secret. How much did he spend? Who knows but I can tell you from personal experience, lawyers do not work for free. Big law firms like Perkins and Cole charge a lot. FEC disclosures show that Obama for America paid Perkins and Cole almost $1.67 million between 2007 and 2009. Perkins and Cole represented Obama on many of the eligibility cases.
This does not necessarily close the door on the litigation as to whether Obama is a natural born citizen. There remain two theories. First that his father, Barack Obama, Sr. being a British subject could not make Obama a natural born citizen, as both parents must be citizens in order to confer that status on someone. Second is the theory that Obama lost his citizenship when he was adopted by an Indonesian and moved to Indonesia as a child.
The eligibility claims deserve their day in court. So far, all of the courts have dodged the issue by claiming the plaintiff did not have standing to bring the lawsuit. If a citizen of this country does not have standing to bring a lawsuit regarding the eligibility of the President to serve, then who does?
Perhaps the most obvious question to be asked is why did Obama decide to release his birth certificate and why today?
Trump was making a lot of traction in the GOP polls with the issue but it did not seem like there was a huge mounting cry for Obama to release the document. He had not done so for two and a half years and showed no inclination to go do so now. Say what ever you want to about the Obama regime, they are excellent at manipulating the media. Is there something else going on today that they want to distract us from?
Given this administration’s lack of transparency, that is certainly a fair question.
Trump hasn’t wasted any time. He is already after Obama to release his college transcripts and other important records. Now that Obama has released his birth certificate, hopefully those records that should have been released almost three years ago will be released.
But for Barack Obama, who did his document dump then flew off to tape the Oprah show and then raise money with Wall Street fat cats, this story may not be over.
Hey shido ku;
How does it make the "Birthers" look bad? To want to know the truth, the whole truth,and nothing but the truth sounds like the the True Blue American thing to do. You must be one of the idiots who voted for him and for some strange reason still like the lying moron.
I'd say almost 99% of the people here never had any doubts or even questioned if Obama was born in the USA, however what has been bothering people is why such the battle to cover up his past ?, why spend over a million dollars in lawsuits to hide it ?.
If you look at US history of Presidents of the last 150 years, you will not find one President that has ever attempted to hide his Birth, in fact everyone of them has presented theirs when asked, even McCain when he ran for President was ran through the coals and was asked to prove his birth, because the Left accused him of being a none US born.
...we're awake, Johnny. Trying to work within a legal system that has become corrupt isn't easy, and it takes time, BUT o's cover-up is beginning to unravel... and it's always the cover-up that sends 'em to prison.
YOU BETCHA DEBBIE.
IF WE ARE STANDING FOR THE CONSTITUTION, IT DOESN'T GET MORE SERIOUS THAN THIS!
WHAT ABOUT SCHOLARSHIP FRAUD AND SOCIAL SECURITY FRAUD?
IT ALSO APPEARS THAT HE IS NOT LICENSED TO PRACTICE LAW AS WELL!
