The question that cries out for an answer

Font size: Decrease font Enlarge font

I’m reasonably sure most people are completely unaware of what I’m about to discuss, but that’s not unusual considering most everyone depends on the mainstream media for their news.

You’ve not heard anything about this on NBC, CBS, ABC, MSNBC, CNBC or CNN.

It’s not surprising they’ve been completely silent.

There is a question that deserves an answer, cries out for an answer even.

That question?

Is Barack Hussein Obama, Jr. constitutionally qualified to become the next president of the United States?

The Constitution clearly states in Article II, Section 1 that "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 …"

In discussing the proposed constitution in the Federalist Papers, the case was made that by requiring a natural born citizen as president there should be loyalties only to this country, especially when it comes to the conduct of foreign affairs and the negotiation of treaties.

It was placed in there to protect the integrity of our republic and assure there would be no divided loyalties between the United States and any other nation from which the president might have come.

If you look at the histories of many European nations you will find their kings and queens often came from royalty of other nations via marriages arranged to cement military and political alliances, and by so doing they often wound up sacrificing their national heritage.

Few today realize the British King, George VI, was actually one of the German Hapsburgs, so while Britain was at war with Germany during World War II there was actually a German sitting on the throne.

During that period, the Bank of England made secret loans to Nazi Germany.

Our president must have loyalties only to this nation. He should not hesitate to wear a flag lapel pin, nor should he remove the American flag from his campaign plane.

Now that brings us to the question of the moment. Is Barack Hussein Obama, Jr. qualified, constitutionally, to be president?

Attorney Philip J. Berg doesn’t think so and filed suit in a U.S. District Court in Pennsylvania (Case #08-cv04083) questioning his status not only as a natural born citizen but his status as a naturalized citizen.

Berg is a Democrat, a Hillary supporter and a former Pennsylvania Assistant Attorney General.

The Pennsylvania court ruled in favor of Obama stating Berg did not have standing to file suit, but attorney Berg has filed a Writ of Certiorari in the U.S. Supreme Court requiring Obama disclose his birth certificate and other similar documents.

Let’s look at some of the history making up this lawsuit.

The court was provided a copy of a Certificate of Live Birth recording the birth of Barack Hussein Obama, Jr. at the Coast Provincial General Hospital in Mombassa, Kenya, at 7:24 p.m. on Aug. 4, 1961.

In an affidavit to the court, Berg provided a transcript of a telephone call from Obama’s Kenyan grandmother claiming that Barack Obama, Jr. was born in Mombassa and that she, Obama’s half-brother and half-sister witnessed his birth.

"I was in the delivery room in Kenya, when he was born Aug. 4, 1961," so said Obama’s paternal grandmother.

Further complicating Obama’s situation is the fact that Obama’s mother re-married to an Indonesian Muslim who, under Indonesian law as his custodial parent, surrendered Barack Obama, Jr.’s U.S. citizenship for Indonesian citizenship since that was the only way he could be enrolled in an Indonesian school.

A copy of that school application indicates Obama’s citizenship as Indonesian and his religion as Muslim.

When he returned to Hawaii at around age 12, it does not appear that Obama, his mother, or his maternal grandparents applied for reinstatement of his citizenship, or for an application for naturalization.

No evidence can be found that he signed a Certificate of Oath of Allegiance to the United States which is required by federal law.

So, Berg’s lawsuit before the Supreme Court questions not only President-elect Obama’s status as a natural born citizen, but also raises the question as to whether or not he is a United States citizen under any circumstances.

If he is merely a resident alien he cannot occupy his seat as a United States Senator, much less president.

Obama, using the power of his position has managed to evade the question.

He has refused to provide any evidence to put this question to rest and now intends to use the power of the presidency to bury the question for all time.

Citizens of this republic deserve an answer to the question that cries out for an answer.

Once and for all.

He needs to provide whatever evidence is necessary to assure Americans his birth and citizenship status before assuming the office of president.

If he has nothing to hide, provide a valid birth certificate and whatever documents are necessary to confirm his citizenship.

He owes the nation this much.
