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.

I think we have a usuper in our white house. Why would Obama spend mega bucks to keep all information about him hid? No long form birth certificate, no college records, silence period. And who is the shadow government who has a muzzle on the media. McCane produced his legal birth certificate because the media went into a frenzy until he did. But that is because he ia a republican and they are protecting democrat Obama. Even our supreme court and federal judges are protecting him. I believe the Federal Reserve is very powerful in calling the shots in our government.

Where are our so called Republican leaders in congress on this (VERY REAL) issue? Their silence is deafening and I smell a rat. Oh I forgot, there are no Republicans left in congress, only Republicrats.

Paul Hollrah over at FSM believes, as do I,the issue can
be resolved by Obama answering one simple question: What passport did he
use when he was shuttling between New York, Jakarta, and Karachi ?

How did a young man who arrived in New York in early June 1981, without
the price of a hotel room in his pocket, suddenly come up with the price of a
round-the-world trip just a month later? And once he was on a plane,
shuttling between New York, Jakarta, and Karachi , what passport was he offering
when he passed through Customs and Immigration? The American people not
only deserve to have answers to these questions, they must have answers. It
makes the debate over Obama's citizenship a rather short and simple one.

Q: Did he travel to Pakistan in 1981, at age 20?

A: Yes, by his own admission.

Q: What passport did he travel under?

A: There are only three possibilities: he traveled with a U.S. passport,
a British passport, or with an Indonesian passport.

Q: Is it possible that Obama traveled with a U.S. passport in 1981?

A: No. It is not possible. Pakistan was on the U.S. State Department's "no
travel" list in 1981.

Conclusion: When Obama went to Pakistan in 1981 he was traveling either
with a British passport or an Indonesian passport.
If he was traveling with a British passport that would provide proof that
he was born in Kenya on August 4, 1961, not in Hawaii as he claims. And if
he was traveling with an Indonesian passport that would tend to prove that
he relinquished whatever previous citizenship he held, British or American,
prior to being adopted by his Indonesian step-father in 1967.
Whatever the truth of the matter, the American people need to know how he
managed to become a "natural born" American citizen between 1981 and 2008.

Count me in as one of those inquiring minds who'd at least like to know
the answers to these easily answered (by Obama) questions.

Has anyone noticed that B.O. never actually took the oath of office. Not fully and correctly. If they do actually nail him to the wall his legal buddies will be pulling fancy footwork like you would not believe and he will be off the hook.

Thank you for airing this subject. I cannot believe something this important is being ignored. He just needs to show the paper. We can't do much without ours. The biggest thing is, if it were no big deal, why is he spending money to hide his records?


Obama is a THUG and Michelle is just a racist. Together the country is in mortal danger of ending up like the EU. Is anyone looking for the birth certificate of Barry Something or other. I bet he wasn't called Barack until later. I already call him Borat Osama

I would have voted for Alan Keyes, he's a black man but something about B.O. stinks and it's coming from all the money that he has spent to conceal his long form birth certificate.
To be honest, you have to ask why would he spend some much money to conceal and also to allow this mystery to keep brewing. We have all heard that you can tell alot about a person by who he hangs out with. The same can be said for Presidents and it is damning to cast a light on the pals B.O. keeps. If something stinks, it's B.O.
Brad from SouthEastTexas

I'm copying your link & sending it to the NBC affiliate here in Houston; as a former Marine, I find his refusal to provide PROOF of his eligibility Constitutionally unacceptable - he is an impostor and SHOULD 'do the right thing' and resign - but I'm not holding my breath ...................

Semper Fi'

To the person that said "Who cares where he was born? "We should all care!"

If he was not born in the USA, then he gained office by fraudulent means. Does it not matter to you that we may have a President that did not tell the truth running our country? This is not about race, this is not about Democrats vs Republicans.It is about character and integrity!

The ten thousand dollar question should not be...Why will he not produce his birth certificate? But rather... Why was he not forced to do so?

The answer is simple, unless you are one of the Americans that has been dumbed down by the main stream media and have not done your home work.

He is President because the most powerful people in the world wanted him to be President! He is their puppet and will do what they tell him to do. America wake up! Turn off those idiot boxes and start finding out what is going on in this world. Unless of course you are scared of the truth and want to continue living in your bubble!

#1. Tracy, your an idiot!. #2. This guy needs to be literally thrown out of office....as well as ALL our present so called peoples representatives.....vote them all out....and let see what the new ones will do! All these decisions are simple logical and ethical ones...but our present grop hasn't a clue!

Birth Certificate notwithstanding, he has stated that his father was not a US citizen when he was born but rather a Keynan.

As recently as last year, the US Senate members (democrats) stated that both parents need to be citizens in order to be a natural born citizen.

WAY TO GO KTBB!! This is not hatred in any way- if the requirements in the Constitution to be Presidentto can be negated- what else can be negated? Our freedoms?

John McCain was questioned on his being a "natural born" citizen of USA, last summer --08--and had no problem presenting the evidence to shut up the skeptics. Why can't Obama do the same, instead of spending millions shutting up skeptics? (and by the way, my choice for President, last year, was the fully qualified, experienced, black candidate----Alan Keyes, who respects life in the womb, and GOD'S rights to define marriage, etc.

This fake SOB needs to be arrested, tried for treason, and publicly hanged.

Every member of Congress and every member of the media who knowingly defended this traitor should be shot.

Enough of leftist scum infiltrating our country.


Hopefully it's immediately obvious to all that the GW who wrote the above fruitcake comment, is not the same GW who wrote the admittedly lengthy but astoundingly informative post about the demonstrable missing birth certificate.

While I've been posting here as Mr. Barry Soetoro, for the benefit of the particularly well informed, I felt adding a bit of patriotic zing by recalling the revered name of George Washington was merited for that post. Please understand that I had no idea that the Jeffrey Dahmer of political commentary was lurking about with bad intent and set on masking his mayhem by using the name of GW of all things.

First the presidency is purloined by a preposterously petulant usurper posing as president, and now we have this! Honestly, is there nothing sacred anymore?

For all of you wonderful people that can't believe that your government would ever do anything illegal - wake up. You have no idea how much power and control there is between Obama, Emmanuel, Podesta, Axelrod, Pelosi, Reid and George Soros. Just suppose that you find out that it is true and that we have all been intentionally had, but that it's too late to do anything about it, and we have lost our power to change it - won't you kick yourself for not questioning it when you were free to check it out? What harm will it do to demand from the President something that everyone of us has to produce, even when we sign up for Little League - a genuine, original long form birth certificate with the doctor's name and hospital on it - unlike the short form that Hawaii officials would have given to anyone born in that year that said they were born in Hawaii. The Constitution states the President must be a "Natural Born Citizen" and that has certain requirements. Check out the info on Therightsideoflife.com or investigatingobama.blogspot.com or obamafiles.com - READ it for yourselves - you owe it to your children. He who has nothing to hide, hides nothing. Obama has spent over 1 million dollars to keep the citizens in this country from seeing his original birth certificate. THINK !!!!

If you haven't, sign the petition at http://www.wnd.com/obama_petition

All the petition does is ask those of our employees that swore an oath to obtain their employment and accept our pay to protect and defend our Constitution against all enemies, foreign or domestic.

All we are doing is asking our employees to actually earn their pay! Y'all do know all these people we hired on to do our jobs agreed to do that, right?

Thank you for your courage to ask this question - something the state-run media are terrified to address.

Chairman Saetoro obviously has much to hide, and the birth issue is only the tip of the iceberg. What really bothers me are those with real power who keep him there, like a marianette, dancing to whatever tune his teleprompter gives him.

It's time for the common man to take back the control the Constitution promises us.

And, oh, let's not forget that the Senate held a hearing to see if John McCain was eligible to be president because he was born in Panama. No such hearing for Mr. Obama. Instead, democrats went to court to fight attempts to have him show his birth certificate. Does that make sense if there is nothing to hide?

BTW, The text on your pages was layered over itself in the "Comment" area and I could not enter my e-mail address on the first try.

The question is, does the Constitution matter anymore? If we believe in the rule of law, then O needs to produce the proof of citizenship, or be removed as a usurper - we'd all be very embarassed, but we'd prove to the world we're ruled by law and justice. America is about all citizens being equal under the law - not one standard for O and another for the rest of us. If he can break the law and be president without being a "natural born" citizen, then why can't I drive 120mph or stop paying taxes? This isn't about politics - if you let one side break the law the other side will too when they have the power.

The organization American Grand Jury has conducted many Citizen Grand Juries in a few different states who all have INDICTED OBAMA in regards to his fake citizenship.

I agree that there is something very fishy about Pres. Obama unwillingness to show his long-form birth certificate to the public. In addition to that, why is he so carefully guarding his other records: education, medical, professional, etc. Who financed his Ivy League studies? More and more he is looking like "The Manchurian Candidate." One thing is now beyond doubt: he is a dyed-in-the-wool socialism who defends America's enemies quite readily.

No one would pay millions to lawyers to keep records sealed unless there was something to hide. Obama is not a Citizen of the U.S.A.

This such a farce, and it shows that discrimination is still rampant in this country. As a nation our focus should be on those who are doing to rip off the middle and lower class, to separate the have's from the have not's. This is a way to discredit Mr. Obama and put even the smallest inkling of confusion and doubt in the minds of Americans

Sorry FRAN B. the farce is Obama's promise of change yet he remains a carbon copy of our last president with darker skin and better speaking skills. The fact of the matter is that the sole source of Middle and Lower Class "rip off" comes directly from the powers abrogated by Congress to the Federal Reserve Central Banking system. Obama is certainly equal to, if not worse than, Bush when it comes to Central Economic Planning theories that directly lead to artificial interests rates specifically made available to the poor and middle classes. Of course when economic reality starts to set in these folks are the ones that lose their homes and possession because they were never really owned in the first place. Obama/Bush's solution?? Why print more money into circulation thus devaluing the currency or worth of the dollar by which prices (available to poor and middle class) are inflated. The fact that consumer spending (and nonexistent American savings) goes down doesn't change the fact that the wheels of big government will always continue to turn... even faster in tough economic times. So the Big Government solution?? More excise taxes on the price of food, fuel, retail, and other commodities that are still essential to the poor and middle class.

Truth be told is that you and millions of other Americans who beat the Republican vs Democrat drum don't have a clue as to what you're talking about... you've been conditioned slowly all your life to believe that change is around the horizon because one guy or gal as either an R or D next to their name. When in reality the same Special Interest (Central Bankers) have their claws in each of the morons being propped up by the Mainstream Media.

As for Obama, there's no greater threat to national security than a man who can be blackmailed by foreign agents... hence the reason for the Natural-Born clause... didn't exactly stop Bush from buying off foreign governments with "foreign aid". Anyway, I think he's a fraud. Any man who spends millions of dollars in legal fees to hide his college and other scholastic records is an usurper. If it can be proven that he received foreign financial aid at Occidental College or Harvard, then we'll know he was not natural born.

As for the rest of you, you'd do well to check out the Campaign for Liberty and actually learn who does/doesn't represent the American Public.

Ron Paul 2012

-Teke616 constitutionalist extraordinaire

God Bless the people at this TV station. You have guts and I hope you can stay safe after this. The whole thing is fishy. It may be that he may be trying to hide that he was born illegitimate, which would be very embarrassing, but either way the American people should know what they've got. Every presidential candidate should be made to prove that they are eligible to obtain the office. He has not as yet.

If he could prove his citizenship beyond a doubt his campaign would have done so last summer and his media would have run the story non-stop for days. The fact that he hasn't coupled with the media largely trying to avoid the issue should be cause to give creedence to the suspicions the doubters.

The media invested a lot in this candidate and even if they know they got played, they have to stand by him now.

Lets keep the facts consistent. The total he has spend is around 1.1 million to law firms and the actual reason why those funds are spent to those firms is dubious.

One of the voices on the video says that it is all republicans but the first one to file a lawsuit was Philip Berg a Democrat and Hillary supporter


Also Alan Keyes who ran for President of the US is also included on one of the lawsuits.


It has been reported that Mr. Obama spent $11,000,000.00 on legal expenses in not responding to the question surrounding his citizenship.

Why would he spend $11 Million on these questions and not answer the questions posed in the legal challenges?

J. You could not have said it better - every word is to the point and mimics everything I have been saying recently. The mainstream media would be all over this if it were a conservative - look how they forged enlistment papers of "W" - so, they are protecting him to the nth degree. But at some point, the truth will come out and have to be dealt with. I've always said from the beginning, this guy is a wolf in sheeps clothing - watch out! He's out to destroy and conquer.

The amount is only 1M, but that is still obsfucation.

J. Church,
$11 million! You're too high by at last a factor of ten. And what he's spent so far is not atypical of post-campaign spending. There's no proof that he's spending that much on this question.

Obama is an imposter he is not my president and he needs to be behind bars tried and then hanged for treason... I dont want to take time to explain my self but go to World Net Daily and it will explain better than I can.
I will say 'if we were being investigated for such a crime as this a judge would subpena every thing we own,search every record we have or every paper trail in exsitance law enforcement would go through our homes our lives and we would be killed by the media.'
Now a ligitimate question arises and practically everyone in the liberal media turns a deaf ear and blind eye to the issue.
If Obama has nothing to hide he needs to show his transcripts from college his birth cirtificate and his pass ports...Obama is intending to rule this country with an iron fist as soon as he can position himself call me crazy if you want but if and when he gets to that point and he is trying dont come crying to me for help I will be busy defying the imposter...mark

Not to nitpick, but if he wasn't a citizen of this country, wouldn't it be espionage instead of treason? :)

Amen to that

Tried for treason would imply valid citizenship.
He is an enemy combatant and should be hanged.

Where's the birth certificate? It's not that hard to prove if you have one.

When McCain's birth qualifications were being investigated by the Senate, it was noted that both his parents were American citizens - not just one, so met that requirement. Equal treatment under the law, anyone?

Soetoro/Obama is a fraud, and has committed a terrible crime if he knowingly has sworn his oaths of office illegitimately. If so, he needs to pay us back rent on our White House!

Just show us the documents, Barry! You can waive the 5th Amendment protections!

American Grand Jury.org has put together many Citizen Grand Juries in different states who have already indicted Obama.

When Obama's Grandmother was dying, Obama went to Hawaii to see her. Just as soon as he came back, it was noted that ALL of his Birth Records, both in Hawaii and Kenya, were sealed almost at the same time. The only person that can/could see them, in accordance with the Court System, is " Barrack Husein Obama " . Is this a coincidence, that they should be sealed, both at the same time ?????. You tell me, but I personnaly, don't think so - the man definately has something to hide. Oh, by the way, he also had a private meeting, in the Supreme Court Chambers, with "all" of the Supreme Court Justice's present at the same time. Still a coincidence ??????? It is also to be noted, that none, " 0 ", of the law suits filed have made it to the Supreme Court for a ruling - still a coincidence ????

First he posted a FAKE certificate as if real
Second he has a FAKE selective service registration.
Third he lied on bar application about using only one name
All three of these are felonies!!!! What dont the idiots out there see???

If it the above wasn't bad enough, he was present when McCain was forced to produce his. Got that dummies... Mc Cain was forced to produce his..... Obama NEVER showed his. It's not about race its about a felon in office, an arrogant criminal. It's about trashing our constitution, the same one that allows you to read this... for now.

The "real" birth certificate cannot be released until Dan Rather and Mary Mapes and their crew get finished creating it. Don't worry, it won't be long now. And don't be surprised if the information is in a script that wansn't invented until the 1980's.

Now back to our local programming.

nothing like giving the least educated group of people- the "birthers" a forum.
Good job.
If you actually read the entire transcript of the interview with his Grandmother in Kenya she talks about him being born in Hawaii. His birth certificate is not "sealed" by the REPUBLICAN gov. of Hawaii. All birth certs are sealed. They are not public documents and cannot be accessed by the general public. Candidates do not need to ever make their school records or travel records public. A child born in the US is a US citizen. He is not a British Citizen. And Vattel's writings have no legal standing in this case. SCOTUS has stated that there is no case. No court in the land will touch this- not due to some evil cabal or because they lack the political will- but because the lawsuits are crap. Sorry to be so blunt, but they are. Brought to court by losers, racists, haters and crazies.

President Obama was born in Hawaii. He is an American citizen. Get over your loss. Fewer and fewer people are self identifying as republicans and this is one of the reasons. Your old man and crazy moose hunting simpleton couldn't beat him. Well, that issue and Foley,Vitter, Ensign, Craig, and now Sanford. The party of family values huh?
This is one giant FAIL and KTBB should be ashamed of themselves. Who ever came up with question should be fired and mocked.

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

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, to be president?

Goggle "Vattel constitution" and you will get nearly 50,000 returns. Irrelevant huh?

As for the merit of the legal cases, you're going to love this!

Judge: Eligibility dispute is 'serious'
Says case will be expedited when representation lined up.


Have a nice day Rahm.

Congratulations KETK! I wish our mainstraem media in California had the guts to run something like this. Good on Texas! Some of your callers just don't get it. I had to laugh at the caller who asked "if you marry a US citizen, you're a US citizen, right?" That's not the issue. The Constitution states the President must be a 'natural-born citizen'. Barry won't prove that and his grandmother said she was in Kenya when he was born. No school, medical or birth records!! Who is this man? He's not my president. He's a wanna be that's running the USA into the ground as fast as he can.

I think it is very strange that Obama hasn't shown his long-form birth certificate and school records when so many people, including myself, want to see them...have a right to see them! At this point though, because he is taking so long about it and has hired a whole legal team to combat the many lawsuits placed on him on this issue, even if he did come out with his records I would be tempted to think they were plagerized.

From Soetoro's campaign website: 'his birth status was “governed” by the British Nationality Act of 1948.'

How in hell is the "birth status" of an American citizen, born in the American State of Hawaii, "governed" by the laws of a foreign country? Wake up.

The only people wearing tinfoil hats are those poor deluded souls who believe this man was ever eligible to be President.

The truth is, he is an Indonesian Citizen, and an illegal alien in the USA.

Not only is there "enough proof," there is more proof than has ever been presented for any other president in the history of our nation.
