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

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.

Come on, this guy comes from where? What do we know about him? We do know that he can speak english. However, he has never provided an offical birth certificate,(long form.) He has never released his medical records, his college transcripts, all of which past presidents have done.

He is the manchurian candidate, but now he is the president. I was so happy to see that there are still some mainstream media outlets that are interested in the truth.

His own grandmother said.(on tape.) that she was in the room when he (obama) was born. That room was in kenya not hawaii.

At the very least people, it should make you think.


Looks like it's true that people in Texas are morons.


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

"What is posted on Obama's "Fight the Smears" website as well as FactCheck.org is the abbreviated short-form "certification of live birth" that could have been issued for a child born overseas, and thus does not prove he was born in Hawaii." D. Kupelian

Hawaii won't even accept the CoLB for their own Hawaiian Home Lands program. They require an actual birth certificate. Want to see why?

Compare genuine 'long-form' Hawaiian birth certificate with Obama's online form.
Here is the difference.

In fact, Obama actually doesn't have a birth certificate, (at least not an American one) he has a CoLB, which he refuses to grant Hawaii permission to release. He expects us to accept a computer graphic of his worthless CoLB, to be president? The next time someone at the DMV window asks to see your birth certificate, try showing them a picture of it on your lap top computer screen, and see what happens!

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.

So what is a 'natural born' citizen?

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. 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.

See the detailed history and facts here.

Obama's Kenyan father precludes Obama from being natural born. Therefore Obama is not constitutionally eligible to serve a president but in fact, is an illegal usurper!

The preponderance amount of proof shows that he is not a legal citizen of this country and he should be impeached from office. To those that think this is a racial thing I call BS. I could care less if was purple with yellow polka dots. He has not proven that he is qualified therefor he should be thrown in jail along with all his cronies that are helping to cover this all up including his lawyers as they are just as guilty of breaking the law. If he is qualified as they say then he should have no problem showing us the REAL long form certificate. But as he has spent close to a million dollars trying to keep all this a secret you have to wonder what he has to hide? Of course the libs and the media are not interested in it because they have too much invested in him now and would look like the laughing stock to the world that they are.

It will eventually come to light that Obama is a fraud, hopefully before he takes the oath of office. He said anything to get elected, and it worked. He went from liberal to the center in his rhetoric during his campaign after the primaries and got himself elected. 64 million blind, ambivalent and uninformed Americans voted for him and now we deserve everything we are going to get. This man has sealed off virtually every record that would give us any insight at all regarding his background; and yet, he touts transparency as one of the fundamentals of his platform.

2. His Selective Service records seem to be “tampered with” also.
Shouldn’t this have been a red light to us?

The most disturbing aspect of all of this is that he may not even be a natural born citizen of the United States as mandated by the US Constitution! He may have been born in Kenya. His paternal grandmother in Kenya claims she was at his birth! Contrary to what people say about tin foil hats, what Hawaii officials offered us for his birth certificate is just not good enough. It is not the vault certificate of live birth. For Obama and his lawyers to spend even one dollar fighting these cases, rather than produce documentation that will quelled the charges, is one dollar too much. Transparency…? My Ass!
Secrecy. Deceit. Lies. Protection by a media seduced by his rhetoric, and intellectual fellatio given by supporters in love with his slogans. We deserve what we get!
Berg vs Obama (Law suit of Obama being ineligible to be President)

Read about what America really bought on November 4, 2008:


gmiller said "Vattel has nothing to do with our Constitution."


You are wrong.

Benjamin Franklin wrote a letter in 1775, thanking Mr. Dumas for copies of Vatell's book; one for University of Massuchussetts bay, one for University in Philadelphia, and the third with Ben who gave it to the other delegates to the Continental Congress of 1775, who were even then discussing a "rising state".

And see the connection that I have discovered between Vatell's "The Law of Nations" and the formation of the USA. Specifically, ONE paragraph of Vatell's "foreshadowing": The Declaration, The Articles of Confederation, and the US Constitution.


This is nuts. Please take the time to go educate yourself regarding this non issue. President Obama was born in Hawaii and is a nbc. Vattel has nothing to do with our Constitution.





Imagine if there was speculation about Bush's BC? This guy is a freaking usurper and needs to go. It has NOTHING to do with racism give me a freaking break. I am so sick of people NOT caring about this country. We WILL lose this country And you can thank EVERY Democrat who voted out of emotion. They do not use facts and logic when voting. When I register my son for school let me see if they allow him in with a Certificate of Live birth and NOT a Birth Certificate....I'll keep you all posted. Won't we look like a freaking laughing stock of the world WHEN it does come out. Skeletons ALWAYS come out of the closet.

How can British Law govern a US Citizen.

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.

Whos is in the White House? Barack Obama an admitted British subject at birth or Barry Soetoro an illegal alien of Indonesia citizenship?



Obama needs to release the documents. Most probably, all it will do is stop the controversy. However, the more dollars he spends (or lets states spend in his behalf) squashing the various court cases, the more one has to wonder what he is hiding.
At the very least, the bill in congress that will require all citizenship documentation for future candidates needs to be passed.

Funny thing, here's what a couple of Senators had to say in 2004:


“What is a natural born citizen? Clearly, someone born within the United States or one of its territories is a natural born citizen.”


“I introduced this bill. This defines the term of ‘‘natural born citizen’’ as used in the Constitution as a child born in the United States, a child born abroad to a U.S. citizen, and a child born abroad and adopted by a U.S. citizen.”


A a native of Tyler and having grown up with KTBB I have to applaud you for daring to ask this question. This is the first time in the history of America that a presidential candidate has conspired to conceal the most basic of information from the voters: his place of birth. He has hired numerous lawyers and spent many dollars to do this so the question of "why" has to be asked and ultimately answered. Thus far 535 congressmen and supreme court judges have failed the American people and the Constitution that spells out the requirement in the first place.

Hey, Barry! Just release the documents and clear all this up. What are you hiding, spending all this money to keep them locked up?

"This such a farse, and it shows that discriminstion is still rampant in this country. "

The word is 'farce' and there is noting racist about questioning Barry's eligibility to be president. We would not be good citizens if we failed to insist that the laws be followed. The 'natural born' clause of the Constitution, supported by the words of the founding fathers, PROVE that AKA Obama is a liar, a fraud, a usurper and a traitor to this country. Hell, he fully admits that he was the son of a Kenyan national who was a British subject. That is PRECISELY the situation most feared by the founders. All by itself that disqualifies him!

This has been going on since June of 2008.
ABCNBCCBSFOX all pretty much had kept a lid on this. KTBB has just passed combined
total coverage of others on this subject.

Constitution has ONLY the office of POTUS to require a NATURAL BORN Citizen as qualified to hold that single office.

He already admitted his father is Kenyan citizen. Finding the long form certifiCATE
will only hurry or force the issue.

Next "critical" date is July 13. U.S. District Judge David O. Carter, Before the court is a motion by plaintiffs for reconsideration of order to show cause or in the alternative to certify question for appeal. Check out WWW.WND.COM

Where have all the records gone. There is another document that should be listed with the birth certificate, passport, school records, etc. and that is his Selec-tive Service record number. It was required of teens thru early twenties dur-ing Obama's formative years to register for military service if they were citizens.

Look at Factcheck's photo #5 at http://www.factcheck.org/UploadedFiles/birth_certificate_5.jpg . Trace the circle on the top fold. It's distorted because the paper it's on bends. Now trace the circle on the bottom fold (tip your laptop screen back to see better). It's almost perfectly round. How did Factcheck get that "seal" to not bend when the paper it was on bent?

They didn't. It's physically impossible. That seal was digitally added to the photo. That's why the history on the document shows it was generated with Photoshop.

Could I just be mistaken?

Look immediately below the fold, where the longest line of print is: Barack Hussein Obama. Right under the fold.

Go to photo #1, a side view of the "seal" (found at http://www.factcheck.org/UploadedFiles/birth_certificate_1.jpg ). Look immediately under the fold. All along that edge there are lines of print which show up at that angle and that level of clarity. Where "Barack Hussein Obama" should be, there is nothing. This can't be the same document as #5. Why didn't Factcheck take a side-view of the "seal" from #5? Because there wasn't one. It was Photoshopped onto the picture.

What this tells us is that Obama gave Factcheck a forged document which had no seal. Factcheck knew it was fake and tried to cover it up by forging a seal on it for Obama.

If Obama was embarrassed about anything on his COLB he could have requested State of Hawaii verification of only his name and birthplace. Since he even had to have a forged seal put on his COLB it seems he didn't have ANY genuine document, or else he could have done a side view of the seal from whatever document he had.

This has nothing to do with race. It has everything to do with lawlessness. Robert Gibbs told us all to go look at Obama's COLB on Factcheck. What's there is blatant proof that Obama has hoodwinked everybody.

If we had an honest law enforcement body in this nation, Factcheck folks would be arrested and deposed, the fake documents seized and a warrant issued for the long-form birth certificate to ascertain his motive for what is already certifiable document fraud. Then the officials in Hawaii who have been alerted to the fact that this forgery was posted and failed to report it to the authorities should also be arrested.

Without honest law enforcement this nation is no better than Iran.

The website WND is credible. Not in this universe. They posted back in august that their investigators could find no problems with President Obama's COLB.

"A separate WND investigation into Obama's birth certificate utilizing forgery experts also found the document to be authentic. The investigation also revealed methods used by some of the bloggers to determine the document was fake involved forgeries, in that a few bloggers added text and images to the certificate scan that weren't originally there."


For you to call Joseph Farah/WND any way near reliable news is a joke and casts your investigated skill as being very poor.
Let clue you in a new tool for investigation called www.google.com.

This stupidity has been disproven OVER and OVER, had you done ANY research you'd have discovered as much! No respectable news source takes this ridiculous conspiracy theory seriously, and World Nut Daily is far from a real news source. BTW, James Von Brunn touted this same idiotic conspiracy theory, kudos to you all for stirring up more of the crazies, hope you are proud of the company you now seem to keep. You should be ashamed of yourselves for even covering this idiotic non-story.

Never dis-proven.
Starting with hospital name ( not until after birth date), airline records( no person PG can fly), to records where Obama states he is a foreign student, student aid applied for by Obama as a Indonesian national. to examination of the birth record handed out by the White House proven to be a "copy" of something else( birth records have EMBOSSED stamp missing here.
T'ain't a 'conspiracy" with those facts in my mind.

The Kenyan doctor that delivered him should claim the money quickly before the Kenyan nurses do.


Whether or not Barack Obama is a “natural-born” American (as required by the Constitution to be president) can be resolved by Obama’s answering two simple questions.

Perhaps Fox News’ brave correspondent Major Garrett, who yesterday bluntly asked Obama why it took him “so long” to criticize Iran’s vicious crackdown on its people, will pose these straight-forward queries at the next White House press conference:

1) “How did you (one year after becoming a teenager) arrive at age 20 in New York City in early June 1981 – without the price of a hotel room in your pocket, according to your own book – suddenly come up with the airfare for a round-the-world trip one month later?”

2) “Once you were on a plane, shuttling between the U.S., Indonesia, and Pakistan, what passport did you offer as you passed through each country’s Customs and Immigration?”

President Obama’s answers would make the simmering but media-ignored debate over his citizenship disappear. They also might make Obama himself disappear. Here’s why:

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: 1) He traveled with a U.S. passport; 2) a British passport, or 3) an Indonesian passport. Which is it?

Q: Is it possible Obama traveled with a U.S. passport in 1981?
A: No way. Pakistan was on the U.S. State Department’s “no travel” list in 1981. If Obama insists with a straight face that he carried a U.S. passport, he must be asked a final question: “Who in the State Department or other U.S. government agency under Ronald Reagan authorized you to break the law against traveling to Pakistan?”

Conclusion (unless Reagan personally blessed the peripatetic young Marxist From Parts Unknown): When Obama went to Pakistan in 1981 he was traveling either with a British or Indonesian passport.

A British passport would prove he was born in Kenya August 4, 1961, not in Hawaii as he claims. An Indonesian passport would indicate he relinquished whatever previous citizenship he held, British or American, prior to being adopted by his Indonesian stepfather in 1967.

If O has nothing to hide, why not release the documents and be done with it, once and for all. He is hiding SOMETHING without a doubt. I'm not a Texan , but yall go Lone Stars !

There are enough inconsistencies to justify keeping this story alive and pursuing it to its conclusion. It is deeply troubling that the Obama Administration is trying so hard to keep the records sealed. With that kind of behavior, how can they not be trying to hide something.

Tracy the only reason the "have nots" have nothing is because they are too lazy to get off their butts and work for anything. Every person in this nation has the same opportunity to succeed. I believe the election of Obama is proof of that. The "have nots" are too busy with their hands out expecting the rest of us to support them while they sit around having more welfare babies, smoking crack, and drinking their 40's. They have absolutly no self respect. Lazy, shiftless, dredges of society. Those people need to stop expecting others to do for them what they will not do for themselves. I am from a working class, blue collar family, was a single parent, and took the initiative to better my own life without government handouts. Everything I have, which isn't alot, I worked for and earned. Nobody has ever "ripped" me off simply because they were more successful and they didn't prevent me from being successful. Government handouts, welfare, and affirmative action has been the rip off of the working class.

You Guess Who: he admits his father was Kenyan which precludes Obama from being natural born all by itself as it takes two parents who are citizens to bestow that status. Mind you, only one to bestow regular citizenship but two to bestow "natural born citizenship" which is the requirment for POTUS as well as VP.

Not only is there not enough proof of his alleged birth in HI, but he admits to having been born with British Citizenship.

During the election, then Senator Obama published a statement at his website which said that his birth status was “governed” by the British Nationality Act of 1948.

One question that must be asked is this:

How can someone who was Governed by British law AT birth, be considered a Natural Born Citizen of the U.S.?

Furthermore, why are all these documents under lock and key as if they are super top secret:

1 A copy of his original long form birth certificate showing such things as Dr. or midwife, hospital or location of birth, etc
2 His college records (specifically Occidental)
3 Passport information

There is plenty of precedent, and expectation, for public servants (of which he IS), to publicly release such information. Especially, if there are numerous clear uncertainty's.

This is so simple: show the long form birth certificate. I have copies for everyone in my family, and can provide at a moment's notice. Why spend millions in legal fees to fight lawsuits simply asking for it to be shown if there is nothing to hide? Make absolutely no sense.

Tracy, Discrimination? Because people ask for the President to provide the same level of proof that we have to for simple every day things? I just filled out my passport application, and guess what, I have to show my full legal birth certificate. The simple fact is that Obama has spent millions fighting the challenges to his eligibility instead of simply releasing the document, and no the "Certificate of Live Birth" he showed on his website and on Factcheck.org is not the same level of proof. It was already shown that in Hawaii at that time, a Certificate of Live Birth could be filed according to their state laws by a citizen of that state for a child up to one year after that child was born regardless of where the child was born. The long form certificate that has yet to be shown is the only tried and true proof.

Oh and as for betraying the lower and middle class, think on all of us being taxed on our healthcare benefits unless you are a union member. Yeah, he's reeeeaaaalll interested in protecting the lower and middle class, more like interested in protecting those who keep him in power.

Kudos to the news station for having the courage to at least ask the question. Everyone else wants to scream about how looney and far out there the question is without ever truly answering it. If you provide the proof, it's looney, if not, then the question still has merit.

If you have to ask the question than there is not enough proof. How could we have let someone in the White House without even knowing if he is an American? What kind of person would refuse to answer such a question posed by the American Public!

I am happy this is finally being reported, but the answer should have been known before the inauguration.

Hussein has no birth certificate and the previous attempts were forgeries.. Terrorist-in-Chief, whose election was funded by Islamic terrorists all over the world..

The question is not only whether Obama is a U.S. Citizen, but is he a "natural born citizen" per Article II of the Constitution, to constitutional standards.

See these essays on what a constitutional natural born citizen is:


M Publius Goat

'The Messiah' is NOT a US citizen. Those who did not vet his elegibility should be investigated and thrown out of office. Both on the Left and Right.


Who spends millions of dollars on lawyers to keep hidden documents detailing their past if there is nothing detrimental in such documents.
Our charlatan-in-chief hides his past for good reason.

King Oumbama is the biggest fraud in US presidential history.
He should be put in jail.

On the Live Birth Certificate that Obama has shown as proof that he was born in Hawaii you must notice the listed race of his father. The form lists under race of the father as African. Under race of the mother is shows Caucasian. African is not a race but Caucasian is. This is very suspicious. Also in 1961 under race of the mother or father it would have said Negro if that person was a Black. The term Negro was what was used in that era and it wasn't until the end of the 60's or the early 70's that it began to change from Negro to Black. One things for sure. In 1961 you would have NEVER seen African listed as a persons race.

Well, I guess the people who don't care about our Constitution (which is a contract keeping us SAFE from a gov't like other countries that abuse their people). If you don't care about what Obama is doing in trashing the Constitution (and he IS) then, of course you don't care if he was born in USA or not. You are content to look the other way because of what you get from the gov't on the backs of your fellow citizens - YES, I accuse you!

There is not enough proof that President Obama was born in Hawaii. He will not produce his certificate of live birth which would prove his birth place. In fact, he has spent close to $1 million in legal fees fighting to release it. Why?

The name Obama will be a blithe on American history when his BC finally comes to light.

The entire Democrat Party will suffer for allowing the greatest hoax in American politics to be advance against the American people.


Proof of citizenship via proper documents does in no way have anything to do with discrimination. I could care less about skin color. Only those who cannot stand the truth and the law according to the Constitution use color to block rational discussion of this critical issue.

Just because this guy is black does not mean that we should turn a blind eye to the Constitutional requirements to become POTUS.

I'm amazed that there are people out there who want to bury their head in the sand and pretend there is no problem. If he gets away with this (and it is pretty clear that he is not legit), then law and justice mean nothing in this country. Any of us in this country have to show proof of citizenship to get a driver's license and many other things. Why should Obama not have to? I'm hoping he will be exposed for what he is: a liar.

Have you seen how the socials defend the Obama by saying "it's on the net". The one
on the net was typed by Obama's daughter.
These are the same clueless morons who say
the debate is over when questioned about
any global warming facts that contradict
Gore's hoax material,

The fact that Mr. Obama has a phalanx of lawyers keeping his long-form birth certificate a "state secret" is VERY troubling. The fact that our new "state ran media outlets" (ABC News for example) who castigate and vilify anyone who dare suggest the birth certificate is an important issue is also VERY troubling. The more defiant the Obama team is to end the issue and release the long-form birth certificate, the more this issue will continue to grow.

It is also sad to see pundits suggest this is hatred toward the "haves and have nots" and race in particular. That is a feeble deflection. All we want is the truth. What is at stake if this issue is an intentional, well choreographed deception, is only our way of life, the veracity of our government and the ultimate freedom of its citizenry.

People are so ignorant, the mans father is a Kenyan citizen, Barrack has said so, to be a "Natural Born Citizen" you have to have "Parents" meaning both, that are U.S. citizens. When McCain was REQUIRED to provide his LONG FORM Birth Certificate the Conservatives did not complain, since Obama provide a birth certificate that proves nothing, turn about is fair play, Obama needs to provide the long form as McCain had to, thats only fair. As far as insulting those who demand proof goes, thats what people do who have no FACTS for foundation to argue with, they insult with a childish attempt to shut down those with FACTS!

If it is found later that he is a usurper, those who shield him must be held up to treason and if convicted, sentenced to death as mandated by the crime. There is no greater crime against America then stealing government form the people. This goes for the liar in chief as well. He would be the highest of criminals for lying about such a crime.

Even today a lot of people are not aware that a Certificate of (Live) Birth is not a Birth Certificate. Obama has spent about $1 million to keep his Birth Certificate from being released. He will not release his college records because this would show his nationality and his place of birth. He traveled to Pakistan at a time when US citizens were not allowed to travel to this destination. Not only do I believe that he was born outside of the US, I strongly believe that he is not a US citizen. If he is a US citizen, then his naturalization has been, for obvious reasons, hidden.
