Finally, MSM Addresses Obama’s Citizenship

Ted commented on my post "A Constitutional Crisis is Looming" providing me the video link, which is embedded below. Thank you Ted! The notes accompanying the YouTube video reads, “Peter Williams wrote a misleading MSNBC (we should not be surprised) article, "Duo Take Obama Birth Challenge to Court." Mr. Williams states, “The justices are unlikely to take up these cases (Philip Berg and Leo Donofrio) for a host of reasons, not the least of which is the invitation to overturn the results of an election in which more than 66 million Americans voted for Obama. An equally high hurdle is the issue of whether Berg or Donofrio have the legal right to sue claiming a violation of the Constitution.” What ever happened to obeying the law? Why can’t Obama just produce evidence that he is a natural-born United States citizen?

Williams further concludes his article, “Then, on Oct. 31st, the director of Hawaii's Department of Health issued a statement, proclaiming that he had personally seen and verified that the state has "Sen. Obama's original birth certificate on record," which shows that he was born there.” What is misleading about this conclusion is that the Hawaiian official does not state that Obama was born in Hawaii, that was Mr. Williams’ interpretation and explanation. The Hawaiian official did say that he had seen an original birth certificate, but did not state that it indicated that Obama was born in the United States. See the further information following the YouTube video.

Citizenship Issue on MSNBC

In reaction to Williams’ article cited above, the video notes make the following argument.

"Hawaii Revised Statute 338-17.8 allows registration of birth in Hawaii for a child that was born outside of Hawaii to parents who, for a year preceding the child’s birth, claimed Hawaii as their place of residence. The parents would be issued a Certification of Live Birth. This is not proof of where the child was born. It only proves that the parents claimed Hawaii as their main place of residence for the prior year.

“British Nationality Act of 1948 (Part II, Section 5): Subject to the provisions of this section, a person born after the commencement of this Act shall be a citizen of the United Kingdom and Colonies by descent if his father is a citizen of the United Kingdom and Colonies at the time of the birth.

“A natural born citizen would not be a citizen of any other nation than the United States. That is what "natural born" means. By nature, the child, would be only a US citizen, because both of his parents were US citizens, and NO OTHER NATION, can by law claim him to be under their jurisdiction, at the moment of his birth. That was not the case with Obama. He was, by law, a Citizen of the United Kingdom, the moment he was born, and then, by law, he became a citizen of Kenya on Dec. 12, 1963.”

All I or any American ask is that the truth be pursued in this matter and that the right thing be done no matter the cost. I am afraid that the truth will not be sought, and that the liberal leaning Justice Anthony Kennedy will not do the right thing when it comes down to making a ruling requiring Barry Soetoro AKA Barack Hussein Obama II to produce his birth certificate to the court in penalty of disqualification. I hope that I am wrong.
