Could It Be?~!


The beginning of a stirring over the citizenship of controversial Barack H. Obama.
The presidential candidate refuses to release his birth certificate so far.

Jim Geraghty at National Review poses three possibilities:
1) Obama was actually born in Kenya.
2) Obama's middle name is not "Hussein", but "Muhammad".
3) Obama's given name is "Barry", and chose to be called "Barack" sometime later, in perhaps a hint to inner Muslim feelings.

I hate rumors and gossip- understand that right upfront. The afternoon blogosphere is rife with theories as to why Mr. Obama would hurry and support a Senate Resolution, confirming John McCain's authenticity, as he was born in the Panama Canal Zone; because it deflects attention away from his ineligibility from the Presidency.

This commenter has a good sense of the matter:

Barack Obama is not legally a U.S. Natural-born citizen according to the law on the books at the time of his birth (08-04-61) which falls between "December 24, 1952 to November 13, 1986.

US Law very clearly stipulates: "…If only one parent was a U.S. Citizen at the time of your birth, that parent must have resided in the United States for at least ten years, at least five of which had to be after the age of 16." Barack Obama’s father was not a U.S. Citizen and Obama’s mother was only 18 when Obama was born, which means though she had been a U.S. Citizen for 10 years, (or citizen perhaps because of Hawai’i being a territory) the mother fails the test for being so for at least 5 years **prior to** Barack Obama’s birth, but *after* age 16. It doesn’t matter *after* . In essence, she was not old enough to qualify her son for automatic U.S. Citizenship. At most, there were only 2 years elapsed since his mother turned 16 at the time of Barack Obama’s birth when she was 18 in Hawai’i. His mother would have needed to have been 16+5= 21 years old, at the time of Barack Obama’s birth for him to have been a natural-born citizen. As aforementioned, she was a young college student at the time and was not. Barack Obama was already 3 years old at that time his mother would have needed to have waited to have him as the only U.S. Citizen parent. Obama instead should have been naturalized, but even then, that would still disqualify him from holding the office.

*** Naturalized citizens are ineligible to hold the office of President. *** Though Barack Obama was sent back to Hawaii at age 10, all the other info does not matter because his mother is the one who needed to have been a U.S. Citizen for 10 years prior to his birth on August 4, 1961, with 5 of those years being after age 16. Further, Obama may have had to have remained in the country for some time to protect any citizenship he would have had, rather than living in Indonesia. Now you can see why Obama’s aides stopped his speech about how we technically have more than 50 states, because it would have led to this discovery. This is very clear cut and a blaring violation of U.S. Election law.

This would be the living end to the Democratic Party, if this is the truth. To realize that their savior, their standard bearer, is a widely-endorsed fraud. And it would explain why Obama neither wears his American Flag pin, nor places his hand over his heart, while the National Anthem is played.

Ahem, uh, er Hillary?

That is all very interesting and it would be nice if it gets investigated fully, but sadly, it may all get swept under the proverbial rug and called "conspiracy theory".

You could be on the money, Abouna (you usually are), but still I think I'll call the RNC tomorrow in Washington and make sure someone there is aware of the possibility.

This is indeed interesting but so far I'm not hearing anything about it on the news or on other sites. If true, I sure hope it won't be "swept under the rug". We need to know! (And it WOULD explain a lot wouldn't it).
