KTBB's Question of the Day: Is There Enough Proof President Obama is a U.S. citizen?

POSTED: Wednesday, June 24, 2009 - 7:12am

UNDATED—The editor of the popular Web site, World Net Daily, Joseph Farah, is offering a $10,000 reward to anyone who can prove they were present at the birth of President Barack Obama.

KTBB news anchor Garth Maier, asks East Texans if they think there is a lack of proof that the President was born in Hawaii.

Comments News Comments

Attention Tin-Foil Hat Squad: State of Hawaii issued a COLB. Commerce clause of the Constitution requires other states (and by extension, their legislatures) to accept it as proof of Obama's birth in Hawaii.

In the absence of evidence to the contrary, those in the Electoral College and those who appoint Electors to the College (i.e. state legislatures) have no grounds to object to Obama's assertion of birth in Hawaii.

Show some positive evidence of fraudulent birth record or go home. Put up or shut up.

Begone, foul Obot. Your very name screams treason and ignorance.

The other Rob gets it, this Rob doesn't get it all.

This is why the Constitution matters. It's a rule book we all voluntarily follow to avoid mob rule and chaos. Obama is a scholar on the rule book, unfortunately he just wanted to keep an accurate score while trying to see how many ways he could violate it.

Hawaii won't even accept the CoLB for their own Hawaiian Home Lands program. They require an actual birth certificate. Yet Obama expects us to accept a computer graphic of his worthless CoLB, which is alleged by experts to be fraudulent, as proof he is eligible to be president? This is crazy talk! He needs his needs his address changed from Washington to Leavenworth.

Besides, Obama is not natural born as required by the Constitution.
Natural-born citizens, are "those born in the country, of parents (plural) who are citizens". Obama is an illegal usurper.

John McCain was put under scrutiny for his birth to two American citizens in the Canal Zone on a U.S. base. He had to submit his proof and the media clucked about his foreign birth.

Not so with Obama. The question was never entertained by the media or congress. Why?

We would also like to know what country's passport he traveled under on his visit to Pakistan when it was off-limits to American citizens and he had no U.S. passport. Indonesian? Kenyan?

Remember when allegations of a 20 year old drunk driving incident arose a day or two befor the 2000 elelction, the Media ran with it 24/7. Today, a question of Constitutional significance and anyone who even asks a question re: Obama's true birth certificate and college admission records, is labeled a conspiracy nut. This TV station, the billboard campaign and the legal challenges all keep issue alive, but the next Republican Presidential candidate in 20012 will have standing to finallhy expose the truth about Obama's citizenship. Hopefullly, we'll still have a constitution at that time.

The real focus of this movement should be the fact that Obama is refusing to produce documnts that every American has to produce to get into school, little league, soccer or what have you. Why is he being so difiant? Why does he feel he is above every other person in this nation? What is good for the goose.... Seriously, my kids couldn't get into little league without a birth certificate so why is he covering his?

Kudos to KTBB!!!

The CONSTITUTION requires that he be a Natural Born Citizen, that means two parents that are citizens of America, not one from Kenya and one from the US.

It does not matter if he was born in Hawaii or not. Even by his own admission, he was passed along his father's British (Kenyan) citizenship!

You cannot defend one or two parts of the Constitution (Freedom of speech, Right to bear arms etc) and not defend, or apply, ALL OF THE CONSTITUTION! You cannot select and choose! We either enforce it in its entirety or abolish it all together.

The callers who are stating "just let him be"... sorry, I can not and will not accept him as the president until such time as he has provided sufficient access to ALL of his records...

The efforts to remove the usurper from OUR WHITE HOUSE will continue with or without the Congress and Supreme Courts assistance. They will eventually be (legally) removed from office and tried for treason for complicity in this matter.

The Congress and the Supreme Court Justices have defiled their Oaths and are a disgrace to this (once) great nation.

P.S. - As a black AMERICAN (not African American), my comments have absolutely nothing to do with race whatsoever.

Rob, great points! You clearly get it.

I knew if anything was said derrogatory about Obama, there would be someone throwing in the race card. So I guess just because Obama is African (not american) that we should excuse him for all wrongdoings just because he is a Black man --- it appears being Black is enough to excuse anyone from doing wrong.

There is absolutely fishy and decidely crooked with all the deceit and concealment of his birth right! If it were as he says.....Show us the damn document...But he and the media and everyone connected in this con are concealing the info to the public. Look at how all the judges have refused to even hear the case of his eligibility before them. Something stinks here....and I for one say that this may be the easiest way to get the usurper out of Washington while we still have a country!!!!

McCain was examined for his birth in the Canal Zone to two American parents on a U.S.Base. He was made to provide documentation. Not so with Obama.

We would also be interested to know on what country's passport he traveled to Pakistan back when it was off-limits to Americans.

There is a lot that is hidden here. There has to be a huge reason for that.

Great story, thanks for running it.

I have to say though, this site takes the prize for the most user unfriendy video controls. Worst I've seen in years. Tiny, tiny tiny volumn control.

In my previous post a did not list the website I mentioned correctly;
Please note:


When the page comes up look for :
Barack Hussein Obama- Natural Born Suject of Great Britain

If you put Obama after the paralegalnm.wordpress.com you get zip..nada..nothing!!!!
Sorry my mistake!!!!

I do not believe he is an American, much less a natural born one.

It's not just about the lack of Obama's long form Birth Certificate. There have been inquires made in California that suggest Obama attended Occidental College on Foreign aid. His college records have been sealed as well inspite of legal action to release them. Background checks have revealed numerous ssn's under Obama's name and numerous jobs under Michelle's name. Michelle was barred from practicing law (boy, I wonder why?). There is also the possibility that Obama's selective service registration has been forged and that Obama didn't register until 2008. He bragged about making his government transparent but apparently feels his records are off limits. He's spent over 1,000,000 in legal expenses to keep his records sealed. I wonder if the American tax payers will wind up picking up that tab too. If so, I'd like to see what I'm paying for!

The birth certificate is a smoke screen.
Mr. Obama can NEVER qualify to be President of the United States. He has to be NATURAL BORN, i.e. born of 2 American Parents. He cannot change who his parents are.

This is a CONSTITUTIONAL question NOT a Republican or Democrat question. BTW, John Mccain can never qualify either. He was not born on American soil, even though he has 2 American parents.


Ding! Ding! Ding!

You are absolutely correct!

Obama's records have been sealed for over a year.Obama has a law firm fighting to keep them sealed ( over a million dollars). If he is a citizen all he would have to do is release the Birth Certificate.
The Electoral College should have done their job and made sure he met the requirements before they certified him as President.

He might be a citizen.

But he NOT a "natural born citizen", which is a requirement per the US Constitution.

Obama has them all snowed. The Democrats risk their hold on Congress and the Whitehouse if this gets traction, the press lose more clout if Obama's records come to light. So, they all ignore the obvious lack of substantiated records look the other way, cover-up, laugh. And the American people get taken for a ride by the left once again.

The news is asking the wrong question. A President has to be more than a "citizen".

It does not matter if he was born in Hawaii. A Senator or Representative can be a citizen. But a President MUST be a "natural born" citizen.

Natural born means born to parents who are both U.S. citizens. Barack Obama's father was a Kenyan and NOT a U.S. citizen.... Soooo.. Barack Obama CANNOT be a "natural born" citizen, no matter what his birth certificate says.

He lacks Constitutional authority to hold that office or to act as President. None of his executive orders or appointments, including Judge Sotomayor are legal or Constitutional.

This affirmative action nobody fraud with his lies and communist leanings perfectly represents the democrats. Nobama is the epitome of the liberal ideal. The reason no court will hear lawsuits demanding to see soetero's (or whatever his name is) boni fides is because a judicial hearing could not possibly show that Barry O is qualified and THAT will bring down the government and bring on civil war.

Response to Sally:

... or we might just see that a lot more people will gladly honor and respect the Constitution, once they understand the issue better and realize they've been lied to by a fraud posing as president with the complicity of Congress and liberal main stream media.

Nobody likes being lied to.

That's why so many activist liberal papers are losing customers and going out of business. You lie, you lose!

It's amazing NBC is even allowing this issue to be aired, let alone permit actual Americans post their opinions. All though, there is such a wicked time delay for the posts to appear. Only 260 posts on an NBC site after all this time? Obviously there is some serious censorship happening here.

I found an interesting website that was written by a former paralegal that explains Obama's legal citizen status at birth. For those interested:

paralegalnm.wordpress.com/ Obama-
Natural Born Subject of Great Britain

The FactCheck.org doucument states on the front "prime facie" that means at face value, which means if more details are needed or if it is questioned, the supporting documents should be released to clarify the info.
But according to Hawaii Statue 338
Obama's birth could have been registered by a simple form (w/o a BC)up to his 1st birthday. This is why the
Hawaiian paperwork is important. Where exactly was he born?
Barack Obama Sr. was a citizen of the United Kingdom and Colonies at the time of Obama's birth..Kenya was a British Colony. According to the British Nationality Act of 1948, Barack Obama was, at birth, a citizen of the UKC and was British.
Even if he were born in Hawaii, he was a dual citizen at birth.
There is a distinct difference between dual and natural born citizen.

Hi, guys, Thanks for the coverage. WE are Democrats who voted FOR Mr. Obama. YES WE DID!
And WE don't know if he's eligible or not. That's because he won't even show Democrats his birth certificate. We defy ANY Democrat who has seen it to show it.
Further, the person who said marry a citizen and you become a citizen can't be for real; President requires NATURAL BORN CITIZEN, as in BORN IN THE USA.
As for your asking is there enough proof that he's a citizen, FIRST, HE REFUSES TO SHOW PROOF THAT HE WAS BORN IN THE USA. Second, again, it's not a question of citizen but a question of NATURAL BORN FOR POTUS.
As for the person saying that he was voted in, SORRY that doesn't trump the U.S. Constitution.
Have a listen to THE Evil Conservative who nails it stone cold and Sheppie Smith.
One more...for all those people who are furious about the Inspectors General being fired, EVERYONE just tell them to say, "NO, we need to see your proof of eligibility/authority to destroy us, BIRTH CERTIFICATE FIRST.
Also ask Star Parker, The Reverend Manning, etc.
They all convinced us. But then we're not in the tank or closed-minded.

Unlawful president and not my president. Everyone needs to visit TheObamaFile.com to learn about the "real" and mysterious Obama.

Please read this, there is a lot of difference between a 'citizen', a 'native born citizen' and a 'natural born citizen'(A natural born citizen is a requirement in our Constitution for President of the United States. On Mr. Obama's own website, he claims to be a 'native born citizen' (fightthesmears.com) his father was never a citizen of the United States and Mr. Obama was born as a British subject, no matter if he was born in Hawaii.


From fightthesmears.com;

" “When Barack Obama Jr. was born on Aug. 4,1961, in Honolulu, Kenya was a British colony, still part of the United Kingdom’s dwindling empire. As a Kenyan native, Barack Obama Sr. was a British subject whose citizenship status was governed by The British Nationality Act of 1948. That same act governed the status of Obama Sr.‘s children. "


Once you read this primer you will more understand what makes a 'natural born citizen'. (Easy to read!)

Obama Presidential Eligibility - An Introductory Primer


Then ask yourself, how can a natural born citizen of the United States be governed – at birth – by British law?

I am NOT a Republican and I am NOT a racist. That said - I love the USA and what it SHOULD be. How did this guy arrive with no proof of Anything? If our Supreme Court, or ANY court will not even HEAR ONE CASE of the MANY questioning the citizenship issue, then WHO is behind the curtain? How many of the Millions that voted for him would have done so KNOWING he was not properly vetted? ( A Citizen) If WE do not stick to the Constitution, WE are DONE!


I also refuse to call him President. I find it funny the press was all over McCain about his birth, and McCain's team had to produce his document of his birth. (McCain's father was military) and the press was all a twitter. Yet, so very silent on Hussien Obama. God Americans are so very stupid.

MAJOR KUDOS to this station for responsible and fearless journalism. We need more like these great folks who actually value their careers and honor their responsibility to deliver THE NEWS to the people!

We have a usuper in the white house. Why would anyone spend mega bucks to keep everything secret? No long form birth certificate, no college records, nothing.

Inquiring minds want to know if you were born in the United States, Obama. What are you hiding?

I am not sure if he is an American citizen or not but I believe that anyone seeking the office of Presidency or any other high ranking office should have to show conclusive evidence that he is. The people who say otherwise are probably ok with illegal immagration and illegals getting free health care also because they just don't get it but if we continue down the raos we are on we are all or shall I say all of our kids will definitely get it after its to late and the country as we know it will be a memory and an aspiration for genrations to come. :(

I have some background in sculpting where I learned about bone and muscle structure. Obama is the son of Frank Marshall Davis. All you need to do is check it our for yourself. No, barry is not a US citizen and it is time for either the military or the CIA to take care of this problem before the American tax payer takes to the streets. If SCOTUS is worried about the black population rioting then they ought to stop to think about what the white population may do. Afterall, there are 90 MILLION of we white tax payers.

Just to set the record straight, it's not those on the Right who are bringing this up. The first lawsuit was brought by Mr. Phillip Berg, a lifelong Democrat. The Republicans and Conservatives are not going to touch it until the Democrats destroy the economy and the Republicans take back Congress in 2010. That's when they will have the power to do something about it. You see, right now thier hands are tied and even Fox News knows this, that's why Fox is not reporting on it. When the Right regains control in 10, Lookout.

Birth Certificate...College Records...Selective Service...Passport Records...show me SOMETHING that proves that you are who you say you are.

The KTBB's Question of the Day: Is There Enough Proof President Obama is a U.S. citizen?

While there is some valid suspicion that Obama is foreign born and may not be a U.S. citizen, the critical question is if he is a "natural-born" U.S. citizen.

U.S. Constitution - Article 2 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.

Natural-born citizens, are "those born in the country, of parents (plural) who are citizens", as defined in Vattel's masterpiece of political philosophy 'The Law of Nations' (1758) § 212, and instrumental to the Founding Fathers, who deemed it unnecessary to define in the Constitution, as it was already understood.

Obama's Kenyan father precludes Obama from being natural born. Therefore Obama is not eligible under the Constitution and is an illegal usurper!

He must have something to hide.
The real outrage is the complicity of so many who voted for him and could care less if he is legal or not. The same group wants to legalize illegal aliens and they have no problem making after the fact an illegal president "legal" If he is illegal is it treason? What is the penalty for treason?

the misfortune of this newscast is that nobody explains WHY obama's seat as the president of the united states is questionable. it is this: the framers of the constitution determined that a clause must be in our constitution so that we, the people, would not doubt whether or not to trust the president as to his loyalty to our country.

the framers decided that the president has to have been a native-born citizen to be the president because if he was not, if problems arose concerning his birth country, his loyalty to we, the people could be in question.

in other words, we are not to doubt our president, which seems logical to me.

the only way that this issue can "go away" would be:

1. barack obama makes public all documents that show that he is a native-born citizen of the united states, including his long-form birth certificate (not a certification of live birth, which doesn't show the address where he was born, his parent's names, ages, race, addresses and signatures, his weight, his length, the name and signature of the doctor that delivered him, and a seal by the office that the birth certificate is stored at, permanently), passport records, school records, scholarship records, and medical records. All of them will have evidence inside of them that will prove if obama is a native-born citizen; or:

2. by amendment to the constitution of the united states.

since it is very difficult to pass an amendment and because it takes a long, long time, i doubt that obama is going to be able to sidestep this issue for his term.

it doesn't matter how popular a president is, what matters are his loyalties to our country.

it's very unfortunate that most people think that racists, or republicans, or conservatives, or those that did not vote for obama are the people that are "stirring up trouble," since that is not the issue.

the only issue is that our president prove that he is a native-born citizen. if he is not, he will be impeached.

worse, if he is not, then that means:

a. none of the bills he signed are valid--they will be declared to be null and void;

b. joe biden becomes the president of the united states (holy cow)!; and

c. a new election must be held.

wow! what a can of worms!!!

Reply to Louiegirl_Chicago"

Holy Cow is right!

All legislation he signed, every executive order he issued and all appointments he made, will be null and void. Obama and his entire administration will be removed, including Biden. With the removal of Biden along with Obama, the Order of Succession mandates that the Speaker of the House will become President. Nancy Pelosi doesn't have nearly the public support of Obama had, no matter how misguided, which may be our saving grace.

Thankfully, only 5% of the bail out money has actually been spent, so America can avoid bankruptcy and crushing generational debt, stop the dangerous apologetic appeasement of our enemies, and stop the destructive socialization of America.

All we have to do is immediately start demanding that our political servants honor the Constitution.

Happy Days!

The Costitution reqires the president to be 'natural born', not native born. Native born citizenship means born on U.S. soil.

Natural-born citizens, are "those born in the country, of parents (plural) who are citizens".

The Founding Fathers wanted to insure the undivided allegiance and absolute loyalty of the president to only the United States of America, as best they could.

Sorry, Twitchy, but "native-born" citizenship: "those born in the US of foreign born parents" is not the same as "natural-born" citizenship: "those born in the country, of parents (plural) who are citizens". Obama may be "native-born" if he was born in the US, but since his father is Knyan, he is not "natural-born" as required by the Constitution to be eligible to serve a president.

U.S. v. Wong Kim Ark's (1898) importance is that it is the first case decided by the Supreme Court that attempts to [b]explain[/b] the meaning of "natural born citizen" under Article II, Section 1, Clause 5 of the U.S. Constitution. Natural born citizen is similar to the meaning of what a natural born subject is under Common Law in England. That is one of the reasons why the framers specifically included a grandfather clause (natural born Citizen OR a Citizen of the United States, at the time of adoption of this Constitution). The founding fathers knew that in order to be president, they had to grandfather themselves in because they were British subjects. If they didn't, they could not be President of the U.S. The holding in U.S. v. Wong Kim Ark states that Wong Kim Ark is a [b]native born citizen[/b]. If you look at the fact of Wong Kim Ark being born in San Francisco, CA, of Chinese parents, that holding is correct. 1.

In U. S. v Wong Kim Ark, the court thoroughly discussed "natural born citizen," and in doing so, Justice Gray quoted directly from the holding in a prior Supreme Court case, Minor v. Happersett.

Minor v. Happersett (1874) 21 Wall. 162, 166-168

"'At common law, with the nomenclature of which the framers of the constitution were familiar, it was never doubted that all children born in a country, of [b]parents [plural][/b] who were its [b]citizens [plural][/b], became themselves, upon their birth, citizens also. These were natives or [b]natural-born citizens[/b], as distinguished from aliens or foreigners. Some authorities go further, and include as citizens children born within the jurisdiction, without reference to the citizenship of their parents. As to this class there have been doubts, but never as to the first. For the purposes of this case, it is not necessary to solve these doubts. It is sufficient, for everything we have now to consider, that all children, [b]born of citizen parents within the jurisdiction[/b], are themselves citizens.' Minor v. Happersett (1874) 21 Wall. 162, 166-168." 2.

BO'B is a worthless piece of dog manure and an illegal immigrant. I was with him during vthe Columbia days and I actually have one of his broken crack pipes. He's a bi-sexual pervert and I was with him when he delivered drugs to dope stores on Broadway and 125th Street. He's a criminal who's been set up as a puppet to kill all of us. Eat dog poop, O'Bama!

I never truly understood just how uninformed and ignorant ( not stupid) most Amerikans are until hearing the comments on this station.
My favorite caller seemed to excuse Obama's CRIMINAL actions merely because the election is behind us.

Obama has not proved his Constitutionally legal birth record and is obviously hiding a truth that should cost him the office. I choose to believe his grandmother who says she was there in Mombasa, Kenya when he was born. Why can't we see those records and can we know if much more aide is now going to Kenya since he took office? Can we start a class action suit about this birth issue? Is he angry and out to destroy the non-colored middle class or make this more of a muslim country? Does he want reparations? I wonder all these things and fear for my grandchildren with all this debt. If true, he must be stopped-please-this is serious! and if I am wrong I will want his forgiveness and I will respect him if I know he is a truthful, good guy.

Do you remember that Sen. John McCain had to prove he was a natural born American Citizen, as a candidate for President??
Why the DOUBLE STANDARD!!!!???? Are we afraid of the truth ????

Which hospital was he born in?
Which doctor delivered him?

Don't you think the hospital would want a plaque or something???
And the doctor would want to claim a small part too, I'd think....

He is a fraud, not a natural born citizen, probably an illegal alien, and is fraudelently and treasonously occupying an office he is not qualified for. he is also a constitutional lawyer, so this has obviously been planned for years and he knows exactly what he is doing and how to play the system. and now he has big taxpayer bucks to pay off his cronies, adding bribery to obstruction of justice.

he's worse than Kim Jong Il. i hope he gets all that he deserves in this life.

Everybody...get a life. It doesnt matter what this man's nationality is...US politics is ruled by the European Bankers. Our slug politicians (Dems and Repubs) will do anything for money and power. We're being sold out and it doesn't matter what your race is anymore. Green is the popular color. Thomas Jefferson warned about this. By the way...you can't do anything about it!

Maybe B.O. should apply for the $10,000! Seriously, there is something very fishy going on. It is very disturbing that a lot of people think that our leaders can now pick and choose what laws they want to uphold and what they want to ignore.

Pres. Obama released his birth certificate. My husband was born in Hawaii and his looks exactly the same as the one posted on the web. The report where Pres. Obama's grandmother said that he was born in Kenya is proven hoax (look it up). It does not matter that his father was a British citizen when he was born. My father is British citizen but I was born in NYC so I am an American. Everytime you bring up this non-issue is like you put a a sign saying "I am a closet racist who will believe anything".

Begone, foul Obot. Your very name screams treason and ignorance.

Obama doesn't have a birth certificate, at least not an American one. He has a CoLB. What's the difference?

Compare genuine 'long-form' Hawaiian birth certificate with Obama's online form.



Sworn affidavits and audio tape are no hoax!

Obama's Kenyan paternal grandmother Sarah Hussein Obama, has stated that she was present at the hospital when he was born in Mombasa, Kenya. Sworn affidavits attesting to this exist for multiple persons, including Bishop Ron McRae of The Anabaptists Churches of North America and Kweli Shuhubia, an ordained minister for the gospel of Jesus Christ and a native Kenyan evangelist who was present serving as translator when Sarah Obama voluntarily and knowingly participated in a recorded conversation about her grandson Barack Hussein Obama II. Bishop McRae asked Sarah Obama specifically, “Were you present when your grandson Barack Obama was born in Kenya” This was asked to her in translation twice, and both times she specifically replied “Yes”.

Some desperately wish to dismiss this conversation outright due to some commotion at the end of the tape caused by Sarah's official Kenyan handlers, who understanding the significance of her statement, tried but failed to prevent Sara Obama from making this admission. She is proud that her grandson is going to be president. She does not know that being born in Kenya is a Constitutional disqualification. She said she was present at his birth. She answered in the affirmative when asked if Obama was born in Kenya.

The handlers who are fully aware of the significance of her admission then interrupted and insisted Obama was born in Hawaii. How could Sara Obama have been present at the birth, as she said she was, if Obama was in Hawaii? She was not in Hawaii at the time and was clearly saying she was present when Obama was born in Kenya. The translator has affirmed this.

Please listen to the tape yourself at this link:



Guess what, you can't be president either.

Since your father was not born in America but you were born in NY, you are a native born citizen but you are not a 'natural born' citzen eligible to serve as president.

Natural-born citizens, are "those born in the country, of parents who are citizens", as defined in Vattel's masterpiece of political philosophy 'The Law of Nations' (1758) § 212, and instrumental to the Founding Fathers, who deemed it unnecessary to define in the Constitution, as it was already understood.

This is supported by the personal writings of the Founding Fathers, the 1st & 3rd Congressional record, and case law.
See the detailed history and facts here.


Obama's Kenyan fatter precludes Obama from being natural born. Therefore Obama is not eligible under the Constitution and is an illegal usurper!
