Kupelian: Why I Care About Obama Eligibility Issue (Updates)

David Kupelian's article, Why I care about Obama eligibility issue include many good points as to why this issue won't go away.


All I know is, Obama is hiding something. After all, he has it totally within his power to make all these lawsuits and "birthers" look foolish with a simple, 30-second phone call to the Hawaii Department of Health, saying, "I authorize you to release to the public and press a certified copy of my complete, long-form birth certificate."

The rest of the press declines to cover this issue (except to mock it), not because there are no valid legal questions involved and not because it isn't newsworthy – what with dozens of lawsuits, some of them in front of the U.S. Supreme Court. No, they don't cover it because they're afraid of losing favor with the president they were largely responsible for installing, and they're also afraid of being marginalized and ridiculed by their colleagues in the press.

Ironically, the "mainstream media," as well as members of Congress questioned by constituents about the eligibility issue, and even the Obama administration itself, all cite as a primary "independent" expert source on the issue, is part of the Annenberg Public Policy Center of the University of Pennsylvania, which critics point out is linked to the Chicago Annenberg Challenge organization where Obama worked for several years with former "Weather Underground" terrorist William Ayers.

But putting that association aside, let's look at what actually says under the heading, "The truth about Obama's birth certificate." Explaining to website viewers what they're looking at – a short-form "certification of live birth" for Barack Obama – says:

The document is a "certification of birth," also known as a short-form birth certificate. The long form is drawn up by the hospital and includes additional information such as birth weight and parents' hometowns. The short form is printed by the state and draws from a database with fewer details. The Hawaii Department of Health's birth record request form does not give the option to request a photocopy of your long-form birth certificate, but their short form has enough information to be acceptable to the State Department. We tried to ask the Hawaii DOH why they only offer the short form, among other questions, but they have not given a response.
In other words, even the folks at – cited reflexively and ad nauseam by everyone under the sun as the independent authority on Obama's birth certificate and proof that he's "natural born" – admit they haven't seen the real (long-form) birth certificate, can't get it from Hawaii, and can't even get an answer to their question about the long form.

Now, the other reason I care about this issue is because I still care about the Constitution.

It's a very dangerous thing in life to intentionally cross sacred boundaries, especially when you know you're doing it. It's hard – sometimes impossible – to get back on the right side again. For Americans, one of those great moral lines is violating the Constitution. For instance, once Congress starts spending taxpayer money on things not authorized by the Constitution, no matter how seemingly laudable or humanitarian, there is no stopping it. There is no other "line" to cross after the first one. So after you've justified crossing the sacred line and violating your oaths to God and man, the way seems clear. In front of you lies wide open territory as far as the eye can see – green pastures of plunder. Eventually we arrive at today's trillion-dollar spending bills and national and personal bankruptcy, the precursor to tyranny. All because we allowed our government to step over the sacred line of constitutional spending decades ago.

It's exactly the same with the Constitution's requirement that presidents be natural born.

And why is "natural born" important?

A great deal has been written about how critical it was to the founders that the nation's highest office and commander in chief be occupied only by people for whom utter loyalty to the USA, and not any other nation, was indisputable. John Jay, president of the Continental Congress from 1778 to 1779, and who later became the first chief justice of the United States Supreme Court, wrote the following in a letter dated July 25, 1787, to George Washington, presiding officer of the Constitutional Convention and later first president of the United States. Note: The underlining of the word "born" was in the original:

"Permit me to hint, whether it would be wise and seasonable to provide a strong check to the admission of Foreigners into the administration of our national Government; and to declare expressly that the Commander in Chief of the American army shall not be given to nor devolve on, any but a natural born Citizen."

Without debate, the "natural born" requirement for the presidency was introduced by the drafting committee and subsequently adopted by the Constitutional Convention, as Article II, Section 1: "No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States."

If we abandon the requirements for president specified by the Constitution – which millions of brave young Americans have fought, bled and died to protect – then we are no longer a constitutional republic of citizen sovereigns. We become just another rudderless, hell-bent nation ruled by selfish, ambitious, sinful – and sometimes sociopathic – men and women. Nothing special. Our former national blessing from God just a sad memory.

I don't think that's what we want America's fate to be. As I said, it's a lot better not to cross a sacred line – and this happens to be one.

That's why I still care about the eligibility issue.

Update and Add-On

Today, Repub X asked the question whether or not the Obama Admin. is working on a forged long form Birth Certificate.

Commenter "Reese" over at Citizen Wells blog had this to say:

Has anyone read this story from:

The Obama File

A Forged Long-Form Birth Certificate?

DC sources say that an Administration team is working on perfecting a forgery of the long-form birth certificate. They plan on presenting it in a a month or so. The source is an FBI agent who has drinking buddy from University of Illinois now in the Administration. It’s second hand, but the source is supposed to be solid.

They have already prepared the forgery with special paper and ink. The document was printed on a fully functional 1960 Heidelberger printing press located at a print museum in Toronto. Access was arranged by a trustee of the museum who is connected to a large Canadian banking/investment firm with major US interests.

The blanks in the forged form were filled in with an old Underwood Manual typewriter bought at an estate sale in Skokie, IL. The raised seal was the easiest piece to fake, since you can by a special order corporate seal from just about any online office supply store.

The only reason they haven’t rolled out the forgery yet is that it is “seasoning” under mild UV light and a back and forth rotation between between a humidifier and a sauna. Get ready….one to two months tops.

I personally don’t put a lot of stock into this report. I have included it here in the off-chance that a couple of months down the road Obama suddenly releases his long-form birth certificate after his long and expensive battle to keep it from the American People. If that happens, this report will immediately gain a great deal of credibility.

Disturbing...isn't it? Technology today can often lead to evil; especially through very nefarious efforts to con an entire nation and forge documents in order to cover the tracks of an alleged usurper.

However, Jesus tells us not to let our hearts be troubled!

In fact, I was encouraged after reading the following comments by OldSalt76 (for some strange reason - I just love that screen name!) over at Citizen Wells blog:

There is a story that the Obama GOON squad is perpetrating the manufacture of a VAULT LONG FORM COLB. Having been a lithographer for over 40 years of my life I have acquired certain information regarding PAPER that isn’t generally known to counterfeiters who think that they can induce aging in a NEW product. True aging is readily discernable, from counterfeit aging. There is a substance in our atmosphere which I will not name. All truly aged paper absorbs this element. It cannot be artificially added to the paper. There is a simple test that will indeed tell the truth about any forged document where aging is a concern. Nor will I give away the name of the test. It is accurate. So if Obamas goons think that they can fool everybody, all that is necessary is to request that a natural aging test be conducted on the alleged COLB. Also there is another aspect of such counterfeiting that is equally as damning. It is the question whether the original was produced on an offsett press or a letterpress.. There is a readily discernable differrence. Unless the counterfeiters have extensive experience in the entire realm of graphic arts reproduction, (which includes papermaking), they will FAIL. Papermaking science is one that incorporates a great deal of history. The pulpmaking to the calendaring, is a precision industry. That is the primary reason why the Obama GOONS will FAIL. Most papermakers can simply examine a piece of paper through a microscope, and tell you the entire composition of the paper,and about how old it is. I would love to see the stupid look on the faces of the Obama GOONS when their counterfeit COLB is exposed as such by trained anaylists. Such an attempt only reveals the level of stupidity that is obviousy present around Soetoro.

In the event that the alleged vault COLB should suddenly appear, and shows his birthplace as Hawaii,I can’t help wonder what all of the Kenyans who think that he was born there, will do. Perhaps it would be the ideal time to tell them that he has lied about it, and that all of his lies are very demeaning to all of Kenya,and it’s people. I would also bet that if he was truly born in Kenya sombody there knows exactly where the records are,and given the circumstances at hand might have incentive to provide certified copies of the original forms. GOODBYE BARRY

You see, superior technology can work in favor of THE GOOD, TOO!
