 Congressman Ron Paul of Texas never made it to the US Constitution
Hall of Shame. However, Congressman Paul is of interest to the
Citizen Wells blog for several reasons. Late in December of 2008,
I was informed that Ron Paul had been notified of the eligibility
issues surrounding Obama and that Mr. Paul was uncertain about
the natural born citizen clause pertaining to the presidency. I
was asked to research the natural born citizen clause. I did so
and found what anyone searching the internet can find. It is clear
what the intent of the founding fathers was. And yes, Vattel’s
“The Law of Nation’s” obviously influenced the Founding Fathers.

Citizen Wells report on Natural Born Citizen

Natural born citizen explained in video

There are several reasons why Obama is not eligible to be president.
However, most if not all congressmen were aware of numerous lawsuits
challenging Obama’s eligibility beginning with Philip Berg’s on
August 21, 2008. Many mistakenly stated that the lawsuits were
dismissed for lack of merit. That is patently false. However, since
the congressmen were aware of the lawsuits, they were also aware
that obama had employed an army of attorneys and spent enormous
amounts of resources to avoid proving that he was eligible.

That is the real smoking gun.

This is the reason that minimally, Congress should have demanded that
Obama prove that he was qualified. A single congressman could have
initiated this query before or when Congress convened to certify the
Electoral votes.

Not a single congressman stepped forward.

Congressman Ron Paul knew that there were serious issues surrounding
Obama’s eligibility. Congressman Ron Paul, who speaks of upholding
the US Constitution.

Late in December of 2008, Congressman Paul was asked if he would
challenge the Electoral votes in Congress. Here is his response:

“If I did that, I would be laughed out of Congress.”

I believe Congressman Paul’s response is typical of the position
of the entire Congress. However, Mr. Paul, we expected more from
you.

Consider the following

From Congressman Pauls’s link on the House of
Representives website

“Dr. Paul is the leading spokesman in Washington for limited
constitutional government,”

“Dr. Paul never votes for legislation unless the proposed measure
is expressly authorized by the Constitution”

“Dr. Paul consistently voted to lower or abolish federal taxes,
spending, and regulation, and used his House seat to actively
promote the return of government to its proper constitutional levels.”
“He continues to advocate a dramatic reduction in the size of the
federal government and a return to constitutional principles.”

“For Rep. Paul, each piece of legislation must be examined for its
constitutionality; that is, on the basis of whether or not the US
Constitution allows the Congress or the Federal Government to engage
in the actions described by the proposed legislation. If the
Constitution does not allow it, then it must be opposed.”

From Ron Paul’s website:

“Congressman Paul’s consistent voting record prompted one of his
congressional colleagues to say, “Ron Paul personifies the Founding
Fathers’ ideal of the citizen-statesman. He makes it clear that his
principles will never be compromised, and they never are.” Another
colleague observed, “There are few people in public life who, through
thick and thin, rain or shine, stick to their principles. Ron Paul
is one of those few.””

Near the end of the following video, Congressman Paul is
quoted as saying:


“The true patriot is motivated by a sense of responsibility
and out of self interest for himself, his family, and the
future of his country to resist government abuse of power.
He rejects the notion that patriotism means obedience to
the state.”

Congressman Ron Paul, I believe that you are a well meaning, decent
man. However, we deserve to know why you believed that Barack Obama
was eligible and why you did not at any time challenge Obama’s
eligibility. Is this the reason?

“If I did that, I would be laughed out of Congress.”

If so, remember:

No man can serve two masters.” (Matthew 6:24, KJV)

Congressman Ron Paul, you have a second chance. A chance to stand
for what you speak of. Contact us for dialogue.
Footnote:

Ron Paul will attend the first-ever Campaign for Liberty Regional
Conference On March 27-29.

“Campaign for Liberty members will gather at St. Louis’ Millennium
Hotel to network, learn, and build their local organizations as our
grassroots Revolution to reclaim our Republic and restore our
Constitution continues.”

Campaign for Liberty

Statement of Principles

“Americans inherit from our ancestors a glorious tradition of freedom
and resistance to oppression.  Our country has long been admired by
the rest of the world for her great example of liberty and prosperity—a
light shining in the darkness of tyranny.

But many Americans today are frustrated.  The political choices they
are offered give them no real choice at all.  For all their talk of
“change,” neither major political party as presently constituted
challenges the status quo in any serious way.  Neither treats the
Constitution with anything but contempt.  Neither offers any kind of
change in monetary policy.  Neither wants to make the reductions in
government that our crushing debt burden demands.  Neither talks about
bringing American troops home not just from Iraq but from around the
world.  Our country is going bankrupt, and none of these sensible
proposals are even on the table.

This destructive bipartisan consensus has suffocated American political
life for many years.  Anyone who tries to ask fundamental questions
instead of cosmetic ones is ridiculed or ignored.

That is why the Campaign for Liberty was established: to highlight the
neglected but common-sense principles we champion and reinsert them
into the American political conversation.

The U.S. Constitution is at the heart of what the Campaign for Liberty
stands for, since the very least we can demand of our government is
fidelity to its own governing document.  Claims that our Constitution
was meant to be a “living document” that judges may interpret as they
please are fraudulent, incompatible with republican government, and
without foundation in the constitutional text or the thinking of the
Framers.  Thomas Jefferson spoke of binding our rulers down from
mischief by the chains of the Constitution, and we are proud to follow
in his distinguished lineage.”

A letter received from Representative John Mica of
Florida regarding Barack Obama’s eligibility issues:

“August 18, 2008
Thank you for your fax message regarding Barack Obama’s eligibility
to run for president. I appreciated hearing from you.

As you know, emails questioning Senator Obama’s eligibility to serve as
President have been circulating in the internet for number of months.
Generally they are considered to be hoaxes and without merit. As you may
know, Senator Obama was born in Hawaii two years after Hawaii became a
state. While I do not support his candidacy for President, I have not
seen evidence that cause me to question his eligibility to run. If valid,
I am confidant these questions would have been raised by Senator Clinton’s
campaign, or one of the several other candidates during the Democratic
primary.

Thank you again for writing.

With my regards and best wishes, I remain

Sincerely,
John L. Mica
Member of Congress”

First of all, in fairness to Representative Mica, his letter was written
August 18, 2008 and he does not provide a litany of falsehoods. If he cares
to respond and look at the evidence, his errors can be forgiven.

Representative John Mica stated:

“Generally they are considered to be hoaxes and without merit.”

Mr. Mica, did you do any research on the eligibility issues surrounding
Obama?

Representative Mica then stated:

As you may know, Senator Obama was born in Hawaii two years after Hawaii
became a state.”

Mr. Mica, how would you or anyone else know for a fact that Obama was born
in Hawaii? Obama has never produced a birth certificate despite many
attempts in court to force him to. Obama, instead has spent hundreds of
thousands of dollars and employed numerous attorneys to avoid proving
eligibility. Furthermore, being born in Hawaii is not sufficient to make
Obama a natural born citizen. If it did, then British citizens vacationing
in Hawaii and delivering a child would enable that British child to be
president.

Why Obama is not eligible

What Hawaii Health Official really said

Latest information on court cases

From the Alan Keyes lawsuit

“A press release was issued on October 31, 2008, by the Hawaii Department
of Health by its Director, Dr. Chiyome Fukino. Dr. Fukino said that she
had “personally seen and verified that the Hawaii State Department of
Health has Senator Obama’s original birth certificate on record in
accordance with state policies and procedures.” That statement failed to
resolve any of the questions being raised by litigation and press accounts.
Being “on record” could mean either that its contents are in the computer
database of the department or there is an actual “vault” original.”

“Further, the report does not say whether the birth certificate in the
“record” is a Certificate of Live Birth or a Certificate of Hawaiian Birth.
In Hawaii, a Certificate of Live Birth resulting from hospital documentation,
including a signature of an attending physician, is different from a
Certificate of Hawaiian Birth. For births prior to 1972, a Certificate of
Hawaiian Birth was the result of the uncorroborated testimony of one witness
and was not generated by a hospital. Such a Certificate could be obtained up
to one year from the date of the child’s birth. For that reason, its value
as prima facie evidence is limited and could be overcome if any of the
allegations of substantial evidence of birth outside Hawaii can be obtained.
The vault (long Version) birth certificate, per Hawaiian Statute 883.176
allows the birth in another State or another country to be registered in
Hawaii. Box 7C of the vault Certificate of Live Birth contains a question,
whether the birth was in Hawaii or another State or Country. Therefore,
the only way to verify the exact location of birth is to review a certified
copy or the original vault Certificate of Live Birth and compare the name of
the hospital and the name and the signature of the doctor against the
birthing records on file at the hospital noted on the Certificate of the
Live Birth.”

Hall of Shame

A letter received from Senator Saxby Chambliss of
Georgia regarding Barack Obama’s eligibility issues:

“Thank you for contacting me to share your concerns over President-
elect Obama’s citizenship. I appreciate hearing from you.

Article II, Section 1, Clause 5 of the United States Constitution
states, “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.” President-elect Obama demonstrated his citizenship

during his campaign by circulating copies of his birth certificate,
which showed he was born in Hawaii on August 4, 1961.

On December 8, 2008, the Supreme Court declined to hear a case filed
by a New Jersey attorney, Mr. Donofrio, regarding President-elect
Obama’s citizenship. Unlike many of the lawsuits regarding President-
elect Obama’s citizenship, which claim he was really born on foreign
soil, Mr. Donofrio’s case concedes that President-elect Obama was born
in Hawaii but contends he still held foreign citizenship at birth. Mr.
Donofrio’s lawsuit argues that since President-elect Obama’s father was
a Kenyan citizen and therefore subject to the jurisdiction of the
United Kingdom at the time of President-elect Obama’s birth, then Obama
was a British citizen at birth and not eligible to be President of the
United States.

Another attorney, Mr. Berg, has filed a lawsuit regarding President-
elect Obama’s citizenship and is waiting to hear whether the Supreme
Court will take up the case or not. A federal judge in Eastern
Pennsylvania threw out Mr. Berg’s lawsuit in October, saying he lacked
legal standing to bring the challenge since he could not show he faced
individual harm even if he could prove his claims about President-elect
Obama’s citizenship. The judge did not get to the merits of the case.
Mr. Berg is appealing the standing issue to the Supreme Court.

If a person is born in the United States, a certificate of live birth
issued where one is born is sufficient proof of U.S. citizenship. The
certificate, confirmed by the Hawaii Department of Health as authentic,
shows that President-elect Obama was born in Hawaii.

That may be true. However, one must prove that one is born in the US.
NOtice he begins with “If a person is born in the United states.”

Hall of Shame

2008 Man of the Year

Senator Barack H Obama

Barack Obama is named the US Constitution Hall of Shame Man of the Year
for obvious reasons. Obama, whose father was a Kenyan citizen and under
British rule, and therefore not a natural born citizen and not eligible
to be president, has worked all of the 2008 election year to steal the
presidency. What is even more scary, is that Obama was probably born
in Kenya, not a US citizen at all and therefore an illegal alien.

Barack Obama has thumbed his nose at the US Constitution, rule of law
and American people. His arrogance and “me me me” attitude is a product
of the “government owes me” mentality and Chicago crime and corruption
that engenders a position of being above the law. Obama has looked
down upon the US Constitution despite taking an oath to “support and
defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies,
foreign and domestic”

Obama’s disregard for the rule of law goes back for many years to strong
ties to crime and corruption in Chicago and Illinois involving such
corruption figures as Rezko, Levine, Blagojevich and many others and
continues as he attempts to avoid proving he is eligible to be
president. Here are some prominent examples of Obama’s flagrant disregard
for the US Constitution and Rule of law.

Barack Obama has run for the office of President of the United States and
is clearly not eligible. For his own selfish gain he has ignored the US
Constitution, unfairly impacted other candidates and disenfranchised
millions of voters. He has also obtained millions of dollars of campaign
donations under fraudulent circumstances and caused many others to spend
enormous amounts of time and money trying to expose Obama’s fraud.

Here are some facts regarding Obama’s eligibility:

Why Obama is not eligible

What Hawaii Health Official really said

Latest information on court cases

One of the hallmarks of the Obama camapaign was repeated attempts to
discredit those questioning Obama. This included massive internet armies
utilized by the Obama camp to make personal attacks on internet users
and websites, prominent people like Jon Voight and many others as well
as scrubbing internet data and attempts at revisionist history. Many
voters and campaign workers were harrassed and theatened during the
primaries and general election. The Obama camp even threatend news
organizations.

Consider the following from Missouri Governor Matt Blunt:

“What Senator Obama and his helpers are doing is scandalous beyond words……
abusing the justice system and offices of public trust to silence political
criticism with threats of prosecution and criminal punishment. This abuse
of the law for intimidation insults the most sacred principles and ideals
of Jefferson. I can think of nothing more offensive to Jefferson’s thinking
than using the power of the state to deprive Americans of their civil
rights. The only conceivable purpose of Messrs. McCulloch, Obama and the
others is to frighten people away from expressing themselves, to chill free
and open debate, to suppress support and donations to conservative
organizations targeted by this anti-civil rights, to strangle criticism of
Mr. Obama, to suppress ads about his support of higher taxes, and to choke
out criticism on television, radio, the Internet, blogs, e-mail and daily
conversation about the election. “Barack Obama needs to grow up……Enlisting
Missouri law enforcement to intimidate people and kill free debate is

reminiscent of the Sedition Acts
– not a free society.”

In Obama’s own words:

“I want you to argue with them and get in their face…You are my Ambassadors”
Obama quoted in San Francisco Gate, by Kathleen Hennessey, September 17, 2008

Philip J Berg states:

“Defendants (Obama and DNC) are attempting to change our United States
Constitution without proper due process of law by allowing Obama to continue
his campaign and continue seeking election as the President of the United States,
knowing he is not a “natural born” citizen and the fact he may not even be a
“naturalized” citizen.”

Barack Obama visited Kenya in 2006 and campaigned for his far left leaning
cousin Raila Odinga. Obama was in possible violation of the Logan Act but at
the very least was guilty of “High crimes and misdemeanors.” Here is an exerpt
from the official Kenyan Government response to Obama’s visit:

“RESPONSE TO AMERICAN SENATOR BARACK OBAMA’S POORLY INFORMED COMMENTS
ABOUT TERRORISM, WANTED GENOCIDE CRIMINALS AND GOVERNANCE IN KENYA”

“Senator Barack Obama indicated that he was visiting Africa to help nurture
relations between the continent and the United States. His mission, therefore,
was warmly welcomed by the Government and the people of Kenya. The fact that
he has roots in Kenya endeared him to the people of this country.

However, during his public address at the University of Nairobi, Senator Obama
made extremely disturbing statements on issues which it is clear, he was very
poorly informed, and on which he chose to lecture the Government and the people
of Kenya on how to manage our country.”

However, based on state health department records, Hawaii state

Senator Robert Menendez stated:

“These cases allege that President-Elect Obama’s Hawaiian birth
certificate is counterfeit or that he may have dual citizenship.”

It is apparent that senator Menendez is not up to speed on the court
cases in the US Supreme Court and state courts. The counterfeit aspect,
pertains to Versions of Obama’a alleged COLB, not a birth certificate,
that have been placed on the internet. This is not one of the major
arguments. It is documented, not conjecture, that Obama had dual
citizenship. Obama’s father was Kenyan, under British rule. The
remaining question is whether Obama had Kenyan or US citizenship as
well.

Mr. Menendez then stated:

“However, based on state health department records, Hawaii state
officials have confirmed that Barack Obama was born August 4, 1961,
in Hawaii.”

Hawaii Health Dept. Officials never stated that Obama was born in
Hawaii. See below.

Mr. Menendez then stated:

“That means he is a natural born citizen, and thus, eligible

Being born in Hawaii is not sufficient to make Obama a natural born

A letter received from Representative Tammy Baldwin of
Wisconsin regarding Barack Obama’s eligibility issues:

“Thank you for contacting me regarding President-elect Obama’s
citizenship. It is always good to hear from you.

As you know, some have suggested that President-elect Barack Obama
may have been born outside the U.S. and is not a “natural born citizen”
eligible for the presidency. During the presidential campaign,
President-elect Obama voluntarily posted his birth certificate on his
campaign website indicating he was born in Honolulu, Hawaii in 1961.
Media accounts report that Hawaiian officials verified health department
records and determined there is no doubt that Mr. Obama was born in
Hawaii.

You may be interested to know that concerns surrounding President-elect
Obama’s citizenship are the subject of at least one legal challenge
before the U.S. Supreme Court. However, on December 8, 2008, the Supreme
Court denied consideration of the claim that Mr. Obama lacks the
citizenship requirement to become president.

Again, thank you for sharing your views. Your opinion matters to me. If
I can be of service to you in any other way, please do not hesitate to
let me know. As a security precaution, all mail sent to Congress is first
irradiated. This process causes significant delays. To ensure the fastest
response, I encourage all constituents who have access to the internet to
contact me through my website at http://tammybaldwin.house.gov.

Sincerely,

Tammy Baldwin
Member of Congress”

Representative Tammy Baldwin stated:

“During the presidential campaign, President-elect Obama voluntarily
posted his birth certificate on his campaign website indicating he was
born in Honolulu, Hawaii in 1961.”

Wrong, wrong, wrong!

A COLB was posted on Obama’s site. It is believed to be fake.

Obama has never presented his birth certificate for scrutiny.

Obama has presented no legal proof that he was born in Hawaii. In fact,
Obama has spent hundreds of thousands of dollars and employed many
attorneys to avoid proving his eligibility.

Ms. Baldwin then stated:

“Media accounts report that Hawaiian officials verified health department
records and determined there is no doubt that Mr. Obama was born in
Hawaii.”

Hawaii Health Dept. Officials made no such statement. See below.

Ms. Baldwin then stated:

“However, on December 8, 2008, the Supreme Court denied consideration
of the claim that Mr. Obama lacks the citizenship requirement to become
president.”

Representative Baldwin, this is an important matter. Are you paying
attention?

Representative Tammy Baldwin, where are you getting your information?
Do you care about this country?

Latest information on court cases

From the Alan Keyes lawsuit

“A press release was issued on October 31, 2008, by the Hawaii Department
of Health by its Director, Dr. Chiyome Fukino. Dr. Fukino said that she
had “personally seen and verified that the Hawaii State Department of
Health has Senator Obama’s original birth certificate on record in
accordance with state policies and procedures.” That statement failed to
resolve any of the questions being raised by litigation and press accounts.
Being “on record” could mean either that its contents are in the computer
database of the department or there is an actual “vault” original.”

“Further, the report does not say whether the birth certificate in the
“record” is a Certificate of Live Birth or a Certificate of Hawaiian Birth.
In Hawaii, a Certificate of Live Birth resulting from hospital documentation,
including a signature of an attending physician, is different from a
Certificate of Hawaiian Birth. For births prior to 1972, a Certificate of
Hawaiian Birth was the result of the uncorroborated testimony of one witness
and was not generated by a hospital. Such a Certificate could be obtained up
to one year from the date of the child’s birth. For that reason, its value
as prima facie evidence is limited and could be overcome if any of the
allegations of substantial evidence of birth outside Hawaii can be obtained.
The vault (long Version) birth certificate, per Hawaiian Statute 883.176
allows the birth in another State or another country to be registered in
Hawaii. Box 7C of the vault Certificate of Live Birth contains a question,
whether the birth was in Hawaii or another State or Country. Therefore,
the only way to verify the exact location of birth is to review a certified
copy or the original vault Certificate of Live Birth and compare the name of
the hospital and the name and the signature of the doctor against the
birthing records on file at the hospital noted on the Certificate of the
Live Birth.”

regarding Barack Obama’s eligibility issues:

“December 23, 2008
Dear Mr. XXX:

Thank you for contacting me to express your concerns about
President-elect Barack Obama’s citizenship status.

The Supreme Court has turned down emergency appeals over the
President-elect’s constitutional eligibility for the presidency
on several occasions. State officials in Hawaii have also
confirmed that their records indicate President-elect Obama was
born in Hawaii. I hope you find this information helpful.

Again, I appreciate hearing from you. Please do not hesitate to
contact me about other issues of concern to you in the future.

Most of the readers and commenters of the Citizen Wells blog are
intelligent and well informed. It is sad that many members of
Congress are uninformed or do not care about this country.
Here is a commenter’s response to the letter:

“Congressman Sarbanes,

The Democratic National Committee as well as the Republican National
Committee are private entities. They are not responsible to check to
see if their candidate is qualified to be President of the US,
although they should. The Secretaries of State should be the persons
responsible to check a candidate’s qualifications. By all reports I
have read all 50 Secretaries of State relied on both the DNC, the RNC,
and the minor parties committees as the authority to provide qualified
candidates. Proof of this is the fact that the Socialist Workers Party
provided a candidate, Roger Calero, who was on several states ballots
even though he was born in Nicaragua. Since this has failed, you are
part of the checks and balances, that we the people have vested upon
you to insure our Constitution is upheld.

The Second Amendment to the Constitution specifically states as a
requirement, “natural born citizen” for president and vice president.
This is different than a citizen, or a naturalized citizen.
President-elect Obama was born to a father who was a citizen of the
United Kingdom. Further he has not provided a legitimate copy of his
birth certificate, he most likely lost his US citizenship if he had it
when he was adopted in Indonesian, he also traveled to Pakistan in 1981
or 1982 when US citizens could not legally travel there. He is NOT a
natural born citizen he is at best a citizen but more likely an illegal
alien. Why has he spent around $800,000 in defending himself in these
various lawsuits instead of providing a $12 document where many of
these cases would go away?

His birth certificate on his website has been proven to be false and
even if it was a legitimate certificate, that particular kind of
certificate is one in which a person born outside the US could obtain.
What is being requested is the long form where it states the doctor
who delivered him and the hospital where he was born.

The statement from the Hawaiian officials stated the fact that they
have the original document, that is all. They never released it, nor
did they confirm that he was born in Hawaii.

The Supreme Court has NOT reviewed the merits of the cases and have
NOT dismissed the cases. They denied the requests to stay the election.
Many lawsuits are pending at both the state and federal level.

I understand you are a democrat and want to see a democrat in the white
house. However, you took an oath to uphold the Constitution. I
seriously hope that you review the facts and do your duty.

Very Respectfully,”

Well said!

“December 2, 2008
Dear Mrs. xxx:
Thank you for your recent correspondence regarding the eligibility
of President-elect Barack Obama to serve as President of the United
States. I appreciate the opportunity to learn of your views.

As you may know, the Senate unanimously passed S.Res.511, recognizing
that Senator McCain is a natural born citizen. This measure came about
in response to questions that were raised with respect to Sen. McCain’s
eligibility due to the fact that he was born outside of the United
States to U.S. citizens while his father was serving in the U.S.
military. In President-elect Obama’s case, such legislation was not
deemed necessary because claims that Mr. Obama is constitutionally
ineligible for the nation’s highest office are unfounded. No credible
evidence has surfaced to call into question his eligibility to run.

I hope this information is helpful. Thanks again for taking the time
to contact me.

Sincerely,
F. JAMES SENSENBRENNER, JR.
Member of Congress”

Most of the readers and commenters of the Citizen Wells blog are

Congress are uninformed or do not care about this country.
Here is a commenter’s response to the letter:

“December 10, 2008
Dear Mr. Sensenbrenner,
Thank you for your initial reply to my correspondence regarding the
eligibility of Mr. Barack Obama to serve as President of the United
States.

Your letter stated “…claims that Mr. Obama is constitutionally
ineligible for the nation’s highest office are unfounded.

No credible evidence has surfaced to call into question his
eligibility to run.” I am sure you have had ample opportunity to check
for yourself the difference between a State of Hawaii Certification of

Live Birth (which Mr. Obama has displayed on his website) and a State
of Hawaii Long-Form Birth Certificate (which Mr. Obama has not produced).
I am also sure you have had ample opportunity to read the very detailed
case by Ron Polarik, PhD (http://polarik.blogtownhall.com/) which
contends that even the Certification of Live Birth displayed by Mr. Obama

is a forgery based on forensic evidence. I am also sure you have had
ample opportunity to study the Wrotnowski vs. Byslewicz case which is
scheduled for conference at the Supreme Court on 12/12/08.

Please believe me when I tell you I am neither a conspiracy theorist nor
am I normally politically vocal. Having said that, I must strongly
disagree with your contention that “No credible evidence has surfaced to
call into question [Mr. Obama’s] eligibility….”

With all the court cases being brought regarding this subject (twelve to
my knowledge with four that have made it to the Supreme Court), and Mr.
Obama spending hundreds of thousands of dollars to have an entire legal
team deal with these questions, why does he not choose to simply end the
questioning by producing the long-form Birth Certificate? Why does he
prefer to spend all this time and money when closure of this issue is
literally one phone call away? With all due respect, Mr. Sensenbrenner,
Mr. Obama is acting very strangely regarding this issue.

Please do one small favor for me. When you see Mr. Obama face to face,
would you please ask him why he does not simply request that the State of
Hawaii bring out a copy of his long-form Birth Certificate? If he gives
you a logical answer that you can relay to me, I will be completely
satisfied with that. Please do not let potential partisanship and the

fact that I am only one of the ‘little people’ out here prevent you from
asking him such a simple, valid, and easily answered question. Thank you
very much.

Respectfully,”

Excellent!

A letter received from Senator David Vitter of Louisiana
regarding Barack Obama’s eligibility issues:

“Thank you for contacting me with concerns about President-elect
 Barack Obama’s citizenship status. I appreciate hearing from you
 on this important issue.

I am deeply concerned about many policies the incoming Obama
Administration may promote, including nominations of liberal judges
who do not follow a strict interpretation of the Constitution, higher
taxes on Louisiana families and businesses, fewer opportunities for
domestic energy production, and more. I will continue working in the
U.S. Senate against things like these and to promote policies that
will grow our economy and follow our Constitution.

As you know, Article II, Section I of the Constitution requires that
candidates for president must be natural born citizens, at least
thirty-five years old, and residents of the United States for fourteen
years. Hawaii state officials have verified that President-elect Obama
was born in Honolulu on August 4, 1961, making him a natural born
citizen. To this point, the U.S. Supreme Court has refused to hear
cases contesting Obama’s citizenship status, leaving in place the lower
court rulings. I will continue to monitor this situation and any cases
on this matter in our courts.

Again, thank you for sharing your thoughts on this important issue.
Please do not hesitate to contact me in the future about other issues
important to you.

Sincerely,

Senator David Vitter
United States Senator”

Senator Vitter, as a Republican I would have expected you to be
better informed on this subject.

Senator Vitter stated:

“Hawaii state officials have verified that President-elect Obama
was born in Honolulu on August 4, 1961, making him a natural born
citizen.”

Hawaii state officials did not state that Obama was born in Hawaii.

Being born in Hawaii is not sufficient to make Obama a natural born
citizen. If it did, then British citizens vacationing in Hawaii and
delivering a child would enable that British child to be president.

Senator Vitter then stated:

“the U.S. Supreme Court has refused to hear cases contesting Obama’s
citizenship status”

First of all, Philip J Berg’s lawsuit is still alive before the US
Supreme Court. Secondly, much of what the Supreme Court has refused
to review was emergency stays. So far there has been no dismissal due
to explicitly stated lack of merit.
