Good news: Arizona secretary of state satisfied with Hawaii’s verification of Obama’s birth place

posted at 5:21 pm on May 23, 2012 by Allahpundit

A nifty example of a Republican pol with his eye on higher office using Birtherism to pander to the most passionately anti-Obama members of his base. Note how fine a line he’s walking here. He says he believes/hopes that O was born in Hawaii and hasn’t questioned the authenticity of the birth certificate — he needs to preserve his mainstream appeal, after all — so instead he pounds the table, righteously unyielding in his demand that … some Hawaii bureaucrat shoot him an e-mail confirming that, yes, their files support the information in the BC. Finally, someone did. Crisis averted.

“Late yesterday, our office received the ‘verification in-lieu of certified copy’ from officials within the Hawaii Department of Health that we requested in March,” Bennett said in a statement released Wednesday afternoon. “They have officially confirmed that the information in the copy of the Certificate of Live Birth for the President matches the original record in their files.”

Bennett also defended his decision to request the additional information, which drew massive national headlines. The secretary of state, who is planning to run for governor in 2014, has repeatedly said that he is not a “birther” who believes Obama was born abroad. He was merely answering the requests of over a thousand Arizonans who wanted Obama’s birth certificate examined.

“At the request of numerous constituents, I merely asked Hawaiian officials to verify the information contained within President Obama’s original birth certificate,” he said in the statement. “They have complied with the request and I consider the matter closed.”

That’s sort of like standing up at a town hall meeting, denouncing O as a mysterious interloper for 20 minutes, then being handed a copy of his birth certificate and going, “Ah, okay then.” Why even go through the motions of making a request that was so easily satisfied? Because, as Dave Weigel noted the other day, Joe Arpaio has owned the Birther issue lately, replete with sending one of his own deputies to Hawaii to accompany a group that’s investigating O’s birth certificate. Given Arpaio’s stature among Arizona conservatives, his endorsement would be a boon to Bennett if there’s a primary fight in the 2014 gubernatorial primary; at the very least, Bennett wants to be seen as having done enough to ventilate Birther claims that Arpaio himself doesn’t feel compelled to challenge him. It’s politics, even though this issue will evaporate instantly if Romney pulls it out in November.

Exit question: Forget the birth certificate, as there’s a bigger scandal brewing. Was Barack Obama … the first tea partier?

Someday we will know the truth and it’s not what we have been told today. The senate ok’d McCain for NBC but bo fails. Americans can’t get justice in this day and age of progressivism.

Whose definition of “natural born citizen” did he use to make the determination that Obama is eligible? If he doesn’t answer that question, he’s worthless and needs to be run out of office today.

Buddahpundit on May 23, 2012 at 6:28 PM

Good question. How about starting with Obama’s OWN DEFINITION as he spelled out in his own (co-sponsored) 2008 Senate Resolution 511 (SR511) said  ”therefore be it resolved… John McCain is a natural born citizen since he was born on US military base to 2 US Citizen parents…”

Obama’s own resolution for McCain REQUIRES 2 US CITIZEN PARENTS in addition to being born here. Why would those same requirements not be applied to Obama?

Are we a nation of laws?

Is the President above the law?

There are no exceptions made in the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 for government employees. All means all. Must means must. The President is a government employee who is paid a salary. All means all. Must means must. No exceptions.

All employees, citizens and noncitizens, hired after November 6, 1986 and working in the United States must complete a Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification.

And the only document that prove Employment Eligibility for the office of President is an

Original or certified copy of birth certificate issued by a State, county, municipal authority, or territory of the United States bearing an official seal

The burden of proof is on Obama. He is not above the law, and MUST complete a Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification.

Bennett has done more harm than good. He should tell all candidates for President or Vice President that if they do not submit a hard copy birth certificate, and explain why they think they qualify as a “natural born citizen”, then they will NOT be placed on the ballot!

I see nothing in the media to show what Hawaii sent Bennett, and regardless of what it is, it is not “Acceptable Docuemntation” for a Form I-9.

I ask again:

Are we a nation of laws?

Is the President above the law?

Where is Obama’s Form I-9 and his original, initial (unmodified by adoption) Birth Certificate?

And then, what makes Obama think that he qualfies as “born in the country to parents who are its citizens”? (i.e., as a natural born citizen)

So how’s that media reporting on the Economy going for you, huh? The economy has a growth rate of around 2.0 – 2.5. The fake unemployment rate will be below 8 before the election.

If sane conservatives make this about only one issue, you’d better hope you can get that issue communicated to the masses. Hows that going for you?

Last time I checked Presidential elections were about Economy, Character and Ideology. For people to take only their favorite issue and think it’s the only one that will win an election is short-sighted.

Just the other day some birther goof ball wondered how you could be born in one state and have a SS number in another, proof he was not born in Hawaii…my wife was born in Ca and has another SS number from another state.

AS each “birther” announcement came of another revelation, a simple explanation explained them away…and never a “oops, guess I was wrong”, no, it’s just another piece of evidence is created.

Are you serious? Do you have reading comprehension issues, as obviously do others in this thread? What part of SNN “ISSUED in 1894″ do you not understand? Who gives a crap about state of issuance, which IS a good question on its own in any case, but a SSN issued to someone in 1894 MUST BE A QUESTION that REQUIRES an answer. Plus Hussein’s other two known SSNs he has used. How many SSNs do you have, genius? More than one is unlawful to being with.

Man, who originally owned the SSN in question, WAS born and lived in state of CT, as recorded and proved by the documentation gathered. He then moved to HI, where he died in 1974. Hussein started claiming this SNN starting in 1977.

Do you understand the above or do you still require further explanation? I’ll try to do that, real slow, just for you and your slow moving brain, I’ll even use pictures and fingers to make it as clear as one can even for the single IQ crowd that seems to reside on this blog.

Even if Obama has a perfectly good birth certificate in Hawaii, isn’t it illegal to forge the document and try to pass it off as real? What about the person who made the forgery? Isn’t that person liable, too?

Video N.J Judge “…since it is common knowledge that Mr. Obama’s father was never a U.S. citizen…” At which point Obama’s side’s attorney Hill can be seen vigorously nodding her head in agreement. His lawyers then tried to have the legally recorded video deleted from the internet.

He was probably Kenyan in order to get funding as a foreign student, too. That’s fraud, and if the MSM would investigate and possibly expose it, that would be the end for him. Which is why the MSM won’t touch it.

The Rogue Tomato on May 23, 2012 at 6:28 PM

If 0bamessiah got funding as a foreign college student (I believe that He did), He would have received it as an Indonesian due to His adoption by Lolo Soetoro, unless He took an affirmative step to get His Kenyan/British citizenship back after returning from Indonesia, something that besides not making much sense, has no publically known record of ever occurring.

Oh, there’s also no publically known record of 0bamessiah regaining any American citizenship He might have been born with since He returned from Indonesia, either.

Only one typewriter at that time could produce such a straight line text, too bad it was introduced just 2 months prior to Manchurian’s birth and there is a mathematical impossibility of a small hospital in HI acquiring one in proper time frame when it took Wall Street years to adopt them. Actual sales started much later than August of 1961.

Not that those in WH “brain tank” (if there ever was a misnomer) pay attention to factual details before their time. I am not a computer graphics expert by any means, although I do work with PDF files as well as PS and Illustrator when needed, but it took me all of less than a second to see the MAIN problem with the fake long form WH posted last year. Those of us who worked with type writers and computer printers back in the day remember how “straight” printouts used to be.

Blood and Dirt. *In a Nut Shell*

It doesn’t matter if Obama was born in Hawaii,Canada,Kenya or Mars.
He was still a UK and Colonies citizen at the time of his birth
because of his father’s citizenship.

If he was born in Hawaii, then he is also a US citizen but not a

“natural born citizen”

Barack Obama is NOT a natural born citizen, as required by our Constitution, and therefore,MUST BE REMOVED BY FORCE,if neccssary!! Taged,Baged,AND THROWN IN GITMO AS AN ENEMY OF THE UNITED STATES!.

Natural Born means a Child Born on US Soil to 2 US Citizens.

When Barack Obama, Jr. was six, his mother married an Indonesian oil manager, a
“ Muslim” named Lolo Soetoro, and the family moved to Jakarta, Indonesia, where the boy’s half-sister Maya was born. The family would reside there for four years. Obama attended school in Indonesia under the name Barry Soetoro; at that time, only Indonesian citizens were permitted to attend school in that country.

Now being The Adopted by His new Father Lolo Soetoro Obamas name was now Barry Soetoro / note: look up Soebarkah Soetoro.

Now Also!”ineligible” to be POTUS under the Constitution.Because he was adopted,!!

His US Citizenship was given up in Indonesia Via/ Adopted by His new Father Lolo Soetoro .

Capt-Dax on May 23, 2012 at 9:51 PM

More smoke and mirrors by the Alinskyites. You’ve got to admire their handiwork; it’s convincing and multi-layered on the surface. But there are problems with every one of Obama’s identification documents, and the behavior of the officials involved has been the weasel-worded, weird behavior of people with something to hide, not of people trying to honestly and clearly answer the questions of concerned American citizens.

Researchers have made a compelling case that Obama is likely using the birth certificate number of Virginia Sunahara, who was born on 8/4/61 and died the next day. Why don’t we hear the facts about this and other relevant research from the mainstream media as they dig to prove or disprove it? Because the media’s job at this point in time is not to investigate the truth and inform us of it, but to echo and embellish the establishment’s talking points. And for whatever reason, the establishment has decided to protect Obama on this issue (among others). But the evidence that Obama is an ineligible fraud keeps piling up. The dam will eventually burst and one day we’ll hear a chorus of bliefers saying, “Oh, my God. The birthers were right.”

Purpura and Moran File Their Brief and Appendix in Barack Obama N.J. Ballot Access Challenge Appeal

By Mario Apuzzo, Esq.
May 22, 2012

On May 18, 2012, I filed on behalf of my clients, Nicholas E. Purpura and Theodore T. Moran, their Brief and Appendix in their New Jersey Ballot Access Challenge appeal currently pending before the New Jersey Superior Court, Appellate Division. In the brief, we argue that Administrative Law Judge, Jeff S. Masin, and New Jersey Secretary of State, Kimberly M. Guadagno, erred in finding that candidate Barack Obama, when challenged to do so, has no constitutional or legal obligation to present any evidence as to who he is, where he was born, and that he is an Article II “natural born Citizen,” before the Secretary of State can place his name on the primary election ballot. We also argue that because he presented no evidence on the matter, they erred in finding that he was born in Hawaii. Finally, we also argue that because he was not born to two U.S. citizen parents, they erred in finding that as a matter of law he is a “natural born Citizen.”

It is stunning.

Umm, the part where there could be a Social Security Number issued in 1894, when the program was not enacted until 1935?

That said, I believe that ALL candidates for any office should be required to prove their eligibility for that office, and that falsification of that proof should be punished by imprisonment.

Barry was probably a citizen of Indonesia at one point in his life, or he would not have been able to travel to Pakistan while Americans were barred from there.

He has also hidden everything he possibly could about his past, unlike any other President we’ve had, and much of what he’s claimed about his past has been shown to be false or at least inflated.

I don’t understand why any Republicans disparage birthers. Are they truly that worried about what the MSM thinks of them (cowardice)? Do they feel above it all (sanctimony)? What reason could any Repub give for not at the very least sympathizing with birthers?

Late yesterday, our office received the ‘verification in-lieu of certified copy’ from officials within the Hawaii Department of Health that we requested in March…

Ken Bennett just caved in. I guess he had no better luck than Orley Taitz.

Oh well….we always have Sheriff Joe on the trail.

Just the other day some birther goof ball wondered how you could be born in one state and have a SS number in another, proof he was not born in Hawaii…my wife was born in Ca and has another SS number from another state.

AS each “birther” announcement came of another revelation, a simple explanation explained them away…and never a “oops, guess I was wrong”, no, it’s just another piece of evidence is created.

Lets go ahead and clear this up. It did not/does not matter which state you were BORN in when being assigned a social security number. The social security number was assigned according to the ZIP CODE of the applicant at THE TIME of application. I am positive that the very bright right2bewrong person knew that, but was engaging in a bit of shuffle the facts to mis-direct the issue.

I was born in New York, my great grandmother applied for my SS number for me when I was a child. I have no idea why. But she lived in Florida, and at the time I was in VA. It was sent to her address, and she gave me the card the next time she visited. My SS card has the first three numbers which indicate the area of FL she lived in when she got it for me.

Here is some official info :

Since 1973, social security numbers have been issued by our central office. The first three (3) digits of a person’s social security number are determined by the ZIP Code of the mailing address shown on the application for a social security number. Prior to 1973, social security numbers were assigned by our field offices. The number merely established that his/her card was issued by one of our offices in that State.

Area numbers – The first three numbers ORIGINALLY represented the state in which a person first applied for a social security card. Numbers started in the northeast and moved westward. This meant that people on the east coast had the lowest numbers and those on the west coast had the highest.

Whichever way you slice it, the first three numbers indicated the state a person lived in at the time of the application, or the state the person who applied on their behalf lived in – obviously much less common.
