Congressman Bob Goodlatte on Obama birth certificate, Concerns have been raised with relevant oversight committees, Howard Coble’s office informed, Action required
“Why has Obama, since taking the White House, used Justice Department Attorneys, at taxpayer expense, to avoid presenting a legitimate birth certificate and college records?”…Citizen Wells and millions of concerned Americans
I recently questioned General Colin Powell’s patriotism and asked if he is a traitor. Despite overwhelming evidence that Obama has not presented a legitimate birth certificate and in fact has taken part in a conspiracy to deceive the American people by presenting a fraudulent image on WhiteHouse.gov, General Powell covers for Obama, a usurper.
I certainly will not refrain from questioning members of Congress.
Congressman Howard Coble of NC and his office have been informed of the Obama eligibility issues as well as ties to Chicago corruption. I will be following up with them shortly.
Congressman Bob Goodlatte of Virginia has exhibited a concern for upholding the US Constitution and has cosponsored a presidential eligibility bill.
From the Bob Goodlatte Biography:
“Bob Goodlatte began his tenth term representing the Sixth Congressional District of Virginia in 2011.
Bob’s service to the people of the Sixth District began in 1977 when he became District Director for former Congressman Caldwell Butler. He served in this position for two years until 1979, and was responsible for helping folks across the District seeking assistance with or encountering problems from various federal agencies. In 1979, he founded his own private law practice in Roanoke. He was a partner in the law firm of Bird, Kinder and Huffman, working there from 1981 until taking office.
In January 2011, Bob was elected to serve as the Chairman of the House Judiciary Subcommittee on Intellectual Property, Competition, and the Internet. This Committee will be at the forefront of some of the most significant issues of our day. The jurisdiction of the subcommittee includes copyright, patent, trademark law, the Internet and information technology, innovation issues and antitrust matters. Additionally, Bob serves on the Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism and Homeland Security.
Bob has been an active member of the House Judiciary Committee since arriving in Congress. The jurisdiction of the Judiciary Committee is well-suited to many of Bob’s legislative priorities such as protecting Constitutional rights including private property and Second Amendment rights, securing our borders through immigration reform, strengthening our criminal laws, decreasing health care costs through medical malpractice reform and oversight of the Judicial branch. One of Bob’s top legislative initiatives is his Constitutional amendment to require a balanced federal budget so that Congress will be forced to control spending. The Judiciary Committee has jurisdiction over all proposed amendments to the Constitution.”
From the Washington Times December 27, 2010.
“Under a rule proposed by Rep. Robert Goodlatte (R-Va.), the U.S. Constitution will be read in Congress on Jan. 6. While it isn’t a bad idea, it seems a little like reading the Ten Commandments to an adulterer caught stealing his neighbor’s ox on the Sabbath.
The problem isn’t that members of Congress don’t know what’s in the Constitution (some probably don’t) but that they don’t care.
Any member of Congress who hasn’t already read the Constitution carefully is pathetic, but Washington is full of pathetic politicians. We shouldn’t be surprised. America is full of voters who haven’t read the Constitution, either. Until “we the people” take an interest in the document, we’ll continue to elect men and women who feel free to ignore it.”
From the Congressman Bob Goodlatte site:
“JUDICIARY COMMITTEE PASSES GOODLATTE BILLS TO PROTECT OUR NATIONAL SECURITY AND STRENGTHEN OUR LAWS AGAINST IDENTITY THEFT”
“July 21, 2011 4:35 PM The Judiciary Committee passed two separate bills introduced by Congressman Bob Goodlatte.”
“The House Judiciary Committee also passed H.R. 2552, the Identity Theft Improvement Act, legislation introduced by Congressman Goodlatte. This bipartisan legislation will strengthen the federal criminal laws punishing identity theft.”
“Goodlatte continued, Identity theft occurs when someone intentionally and unlawfully uses identity documents that are not his own. Our federal statutes should reflect this reality. My legislation will provide the clarification needed to help prosecutors put identity thieves behind bars and will help safeguard American citizens from identity-related crimes.”
Congressman Bob Goodlatte was a cosponsor of H.R.1503, Presidential Eligibility Act.
Amends the Federal Election Campaign Act of 1971 to require the principal campaign committee of a candidate for election to the Office of President to include with the committee’s statement of organization a copy of the candidate’s birth certificate, together with such other documentation as may be necessary to establish that the candidate meets the qualifications for eligibility to the Office of President under the Constitution.”
From From The Trenches World report June 24, 2011.
“Obama’s Phony Birth Certificate – Congressman Bob Goodlatte Acknowledges Problems – Now What?”
“Could it be that members of Congress are finally reacting to possibly one of the largest frauds in the history of America? Patriotic Americans, be assured that at least one member of Congress cares enough about the Constitution of the United States, to at least acknowledge a problem with Barry Soetoro AKA Barack Obama’s birth certificate nightmare, not to mention the legality of his social security number.
It has taken until now to finally receive some reasonable feedback from a member of Congress to at least acknowledge there is a problem. Hopefully, as more evidence continues to flood members of Congress, the appropriate oversight committees will spring into action. How soon these people will actually move is another story, as the implications will be enormous.
At least there is some communication from Congress acknowledging the problem so many patriotic Americans are questioning. Surprisingly, we read in the letter that there is no official agency that verifies the president-elects eligibility, something that I find unconscionable, as this American president has presided over some of the worst times in recent history.
A constituent received this letter from Congressman Goodlatte:
“Dear Mr. Haskins:
Thank you for contacting me regarding the recent release of President Barack Obama’s birth certificate. It is good to hear from you.
As you know, the Constitution establishes the qualifications of President of the United States. Only a natural born citizen, at least 35 years of age, and having resided in the United States for at least 14 years is eligible for the Office of President.
A President-elect’s eligibility has traditionally been verified by public record and vetting done by the parties. It is crucial that any President-elect meet the eligibility criteria as determined by the U.S. Constitution and provide the necessary assurances of eligibility.
Currently, there is no office or agency that certifies a President-elect’s eligibility for the office. However, I believe that there should be a more formal process of review and validation as a matter of routine certification of candidates. The Office of the Presidency is undermined if Americans don’t have confidence that the candidates for the highest office in the land are qualified for the position as required by the Constitution.
As you know, President Obama recently released to the public the long-form version of his birth certificate. Since then, concerns have been raised about the validity of the birth certificate as well as the claim that the President has been using a Social Security Number previously issued to another person. These concerns have been raised with the relevant oversight committees in the Congress and if there is enough evidence and more experts reach the same conclusions then these claims will lead to an investigation.
During the last Congress I co-sponsored legislation which would require the principal campaign committee of any candidate for election to the Office of President to include with the committee’s statement of organization a copy of the candidate’s birth certificate and any other documentation necessary to establish that the candidate meets the qualifications for eligibility to the Office of President under the Constitution. This legislation would ensure that proof of eligibility is provided by candidates before each Presidential election.
While the issue of eligibility has come up in past elections, including whether Chester Arthur (our 20th President succeeding to the office upon the death of James Garfield) was born in the U. S. or Canada, never has the issue arisen as to the eligibility of both major party candidates as it did in 2008 with regard to both John McCain and Barack Obama. The public discussion, controversy, uncertainty and the undermining of the Presidency can all be avoided by a routine requirement that future candidates establish their eligibility under the Constitution.
The United States is a nation based on the rule of law. The Constitution clearly sets forth the qualifications for the Office of President, Members of the House and Senate, and members of the federal Judiciary. Any circumvention of these Constitutional requirements would be a slap in the face to the rule of law and our very Democracy. I believe that our Constitution is a solemn contract between the American people and their government. I will continue to work to ensure its terms are adhered to by all elected and appointed government officials.
Again, thanks for the benefit of your comments. Please feel free to contact me whenever I may be of assistance.
Member of Congress””

I will be following up on this statement to determine what the status of the “relevant oversight committees” is.
