President Obama Needs to Prove His Constitutional Eligibility to Be Commander-in-Chief

This MD and military officer is risking jail and his career following his principals. I to have been concerned by the Obama cover-up of his personal records that normally would have been thoroughly vetted by the press as was done for McCain. But somehow this was overlooked in Obama's case. If he has nothing to hide, he could stop this inquiry by releasing his birth certificate and college transcripts. Instead he is spending millions of taxpayer dollars fighting suits for their release.

The longer this goes on, the more people who will believe in a cover-up.

My deployment orders for a second tour in Afghanistan included a requirement to bring copies of my birth certificate. I would be glad to obey this order and provide a certified copy of my original birth certificate with common, standard identifiers, including the name of an attending physician and a hospital. Every day in transactions across the country, American citizens are required to prove their identity; standards for identification have become stricter since the terrorist attacks of 9/11.

Since fall 2008, I have been troubled by reports that the president's original birth certificate remains concealed from public view along with other records which, if released, would quickly end questions surrounding his place of birth and "natural born" status. Many people mistook the online Certification of Live Birth for an original birth certificate. Until the summer of 2009, the Hawaiian Department of Homelands would not accept this Certification of Live Birth to determine native Hawaiian identity -- the Department insisted upon also reviewing an original birth certificate.

Many do not understand that the online document was from 2007, generated by computer, laser-printed, and merely a certification that there is something on file which may or may not be sufficient proof of a birth in Hawaii. An original birth certificate could be the underlying document that presumably includes a hospital and attending physician's or midwife's name. Such a document should lay to rest the "natural born" dispute. This controversy was further escalated by media reports that gave two different hospital names for Obama's birthplace -- even today, the public does not know what doctor delivered the then-future president or which hospital was the site of his birth. No eyewitnesses have stepped forward to affirm that he was born in Hawaii in 1961. Under immigration laws in force at the time, if born in Kenya to a father who was not a U.S. citizen, Barack Obama had no right to American citizenship of any kind, and he could never qualify as "natural born." This is why determining his actual birthplace is crucial.

The burden of proof, it seems, must rest with the White House-- with president Obama himself, as these records are his, and he has chosen to conceal them at considerable legal expense.

  1. Difference between USSR Communist media and USA "mainstream media"

    In Russia government make media say what they want - even if lie.

    In USA "mainstream media" try make government what they want - even if lie..

    .....eventually they become same thing?!

    Old Russian saying You can tell same lie 1000 time but not change truth!

    I Igor produce Obama Birth Certificate at

    Compare Obama Care vs Igor Care at Obama Care vs Igor Care

  2. This has already been proven. Move on please.

  3. I remain open to this only because of the cover-up. My mama always said, "if there is nothing to hide, why hide it?". All Obama has to do to embarrass all the "birthers" is withdraw the lawyers and release the documents as ALL presidential candidates have in the past.
