Arizona sheriff finds Obama presidential qualifications forged
Pravda.Ru ^ | 3-7-2012 | Dianna C. Cotter

Posted on 03/07/2012 8:10:30 AM PST by Danae

A singularly remarkable event has taken place in the United States of America. This event occurred in Arizona on March 1st and was an earth shattering revelation.

A long awaited press conference was given by Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, a five time elected Sheriff, which should have made national and international headlines. Arpaio's credentials include serving in the United States Army from 1950 to 1953, service as a federal narcotics agent serving in countries all over the world with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), and served as the head of the Arizona DEA. Without doubt, this is a serious Law Enforcement Officer, not one to be taken in by tin-foil-hat wearing loons.

(snip)

Years before the 2008 election, Barack Obama was involved in efforts to amend the US Constitution to allowthose who were born to parents who were not citizens to become President along with those born overseas. Those efforts have occurred several times in recent history, and all have failed. It must be intelligently asked why this was a concern at all for the then Senator.

There are two reasons for Obama's concern. The first lay in Article 2 section 1 of the constitution which 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,".

Except for Barack Obama.

The second reason for Obama's concern lies in the Supreme Court of the United States case Minor V. Happersett (88 U.S. 162) 1875 which defines Natural Born Citizen:

"The Constitution does not, in words, say who shall be natural-born citizens. Resort must be had elsewhere to ascertain that. At common-law, with the nomenclature of which the framers of the Constitution were familiar, it was never doubted that all children born in a country of parents who were its citizens became themselves, upon their birth, citizens also. These were natives, or natural-born citizens, as distinguished from aliens or foreigners." Minor v. Happersett, 88 U.S. 162, 168.

(snip)

The state of Hawaii's role in this cannot be neglected for several reasons. Hawaii has a couple of legal Achilles heels of its own.

It was well known at the time, that any person could register the birth of a child in the state on a late form with only the signature of a witness (Hawaii Department of Health no longer uses this form). This means of obtaining Hawaiian documents was used frequently by immigrants who needed assistance from the state (such as welfare), and Hawaii needed the federal dollars registering those births brought to the state. Second, and perhaps most importantly, Federal laws with regard to Hawaii had been written to allow a baby receiving state documents to be declared a Citizen of the United States without being subject to the Jurisdiction of the United States:

Sec. 305. [8 U.S.C. 1405] Persons born in Hawaii:

"A person born in Hawaii on or after August 12, 1898, and before April 30, 1900, is declared to be a citizen of the United States as of April 30, 1900. A person born in Hawaii on or after April 30, 1900, is a citizen of the United States at birth. A person who was a citizen of the Republic of Hawaii on August 12, 1898, is declared to be a citizen of the United States as of April 30, 1900.

Missing from this US Statute is the following which appears in the 14th Amendment:

"All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside."

This disparity created a legal loophole which is specific to Hawaii: A child born in Hawaii, regardless of whether or not they were born in the state and subject to the Jurisdiction of the United States, automatically gained US Citizenship.

One item I heard from Arpaio is that while there is a COLB (which is not a BC) there is no record of his mother being admitted to the hospital.

One thing is certain with regard to Obama’s Hawaiian documents. There are more questions than there are answers, and that is not the way it should be.

There is more at the site than just the Arizona case. It includes a good bit more than just that.

If Obama resigns/forced out because of this, then do we have to suffer from a caretaker president (Biden) who thinks “Ahmadinejad” is a rogue cleric from the video game WoW?

There are a number of states with Ballot challenges already in the court systems. Georgia was just the first. All may well end up in the Supreme Court before November, and frankly the Dem’s are going to want to let Barry retire rather than having him get a ruling from SCOTUS which invalidates his Presidency.

The stakes are going up.

Is there really time to kick him off the ballot? I think matter is a legit issue and I’m hoping my home state of Arizona does something about it.

Since this is a county matter would that mean the County attorney would have to file suit? Or would the state take jurisdiction since it’s a statewide ballot issue?

Both attorneys are Republican which is a good start!

The headline is very misleading. He found evidence that they MAY have been forged. BUT, not inconsistent with other documents that have been reproduced for some reason or another..

I would love to find that the Obama team has truly forged this stuff but so far we only have evidence that they are ‘forgeable’.

To me, a school chum, or 2-3, that would state under oath he was known as a foreign student from Africa or Malaysia would be infinitely better proof.

The MSM will continue to hide their SOCIALIST HEADS up THEIR IDEALOGICAL REAR ENDS on this issue. Same as they did on the AGW/IPCC CO2 scam. Sheriff Joe has Obama on the ropes and it will be up to us to deliver the POLITICAL KNOCKOUT in the NOVEMBER ELECTIONS. GREAT ARTICLE shining a focused beam of light on the fraud. The little SOCIALISTS SHITS in our MSM have ZERO CREDIBILITY and deserved to flushed down the toilet along with the democrats.

Rebecca Cook’s reply to your article is very good....here is a excerpt:

“” I admit I gasped when his posse told of the National Archives not being able to explain how only the week of Obama’s birth Immigration and Naturalization Service cards that airline passengers had to fill out are missing out of the ten years they requested. The media showed their true colors when asking questions after the damning evidence of fraud was presented by the cold case posse. Over and over they asked, “are you calling the president a liar?”. They were having a meltdown. “”

Herein lies the problem. The first thing Obama did when he became TOTUS, is remove or scrub his entire life from the public records (see post 21)all the way back to....(no including) the fetus. Where are his college applications?...transcripts? ANYTHING? Did he apply as a foreign student? I think Obama played “foreign student” when it suited his purposes, and “American citizen” when THAT suited his purpose. This guys whole life is a FRAUD.

No, they found that this document WAS inconsistent with other documents that have been scanned, including those using OCR and optimization. They showed a video of how a real paper document acts when scanned, optimized, and/or used with OCR software.

And they found that the draft registration has a date stamp that lacks the first 2 digits that were used by that post office at that time.

They also have a witness who heard Bill Ayers’ mother introduce Barack Obama as a foreign student around 1980 - a foreign student that they were helping to get an education.

They also have evidence that the newspaper birth announcements included names for children who were 3 years old (not newborns as presented in the paper) and children who were foreign-born. The people who claimed that those announcements HAD to come from the HDOH were dead wrong. Either they didn’t know what they were talking about or they were spreading disinformation. Since that is the whole basis for both O’Reilly and Beck arguing that Obama was born in HI, they need to adjust their excuses now.

Apparently one of the posse’s witnesses agrees with you, since he says that around 1980 he heard Bill Ayers’ mother introduce Obama as a foreign student they were helping to get an education.

That says 2 things: he was a foreign student, and his undergraduate education was orchestrated by the Ayers family. What we’ve all been suspecting is now being voiced by a witness from around 1980. Seems like this jives with what Race Bannon has reported as well.

Race, was that in the summer of 1980 that Obama told you he was born in Mombassa, grew up in Indonesia, and was going to be President someday? Looks like the posse found somebody in Chicago who is willing to sign an affidavit that reinforces the basic idea of your claims. With the added piece of information that it was specifically Bill Ayers’ parents who were orchestrating his education... And that suggests that the other guy, who said that Obama becoming POTUS was the communists’ plan far in advance, fits right in with the other evidence we’ve got.

Barack Obama’s Visit to the Other Ayers House
KING HARVEST ^ | SEPTEMBER 25, 2009 | by STEPHEN DIAMOND

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2373561/posts

Mr. Obama explained that he had taken the train out from Chicago to visit the Ayers’ in order to thank them for their help with his “education.” At this time, Mr. Obama had recently graduated from Columbia and would soon enter Harvard Law School. Hulton and Obama “spoke for a few minutes, first chatting about the Ayers family,” Hulton said. Hulton said he did not learn whether the help Obama received from the Ayers’ was financial or in some other form.

snip

Mr. Hulton recalls that he probably asked what Mr. Obama was studying in school and at one point Mr. Obama said that he intended to become President of the United States. Mr. Hulton said he was “taken aback” by the statement but recalls that he did not think Mr. Obama was “arrogant, but just self assured and a person with a lot of self confidence.” “It was not said with hubris,” Hulton recalled, “but with an air of self-assuredness.”

“Yes, it is true. This is not some idle talk. He is already born and he is educated and being groomed to be president right now. You will be impressed to know that he has gone to the best schools of Presidents. He is what you call “Ivy League”. You don’t believe me, but he is real and I even know his name. His name is Barack. His mother is white and American and his father is black from Africa. That’s right, a chocolate baby! And he’s going to be your President.”

As usual with articles from Danae, this is an important addition to the solution of the puzzle so cleverly constructed by the Alinsky left. As usual, this article takes some careful reading to discern the discoveries Danae describes. Danae,like Donofrio and Apuzzo, demonstrates that some clever lawyers constructed the cover for Obama’s most obvious, and unequivocal violation of Article II Section 1, his birth to an alien. What was it they said about Nixon? He was only impeachable because of the cover-up?

It would be folly not to respect the capabilities of legal researchers who understood the subtle difference in in the US Code as it applies to Hawaii. It would be no surprise to find they were students of a Harvard Con Law professor we have come to know, but the law schools are full of progressive law professors to whom the Constitution is an obstacle - just watch Soros-sponsored law.gov symposia at major law schools on Youtube. Good defense attorneys are expert at research to find a technicality, a loophole in the law to circumvent original intent and justify their employment. For academia, acceptance into the inner circle of Marxists who know we aren't capable of knowing what is good for us, is probably job security.

There are some guideposts when reading about legal obfuscation to protect Obama. I never forget that Barack has never, himself, claimed natural born citizenship. He claimed 14th Amendment Citizenship, “Native-born citizen of the U.S.” which is sufficiently confusing to quiet the majority, who, including myself three years ago, don't know the difference. That is probably why so many Obama supporters are now pitching jus soli, or 'native-born' citizenship as equivalent to 'natural-born.' Obama supporters, and many Republicans including all who support Rubio's nomination for VP, conflate the two definitions, even after every senator signed SR.511 in Apr. 2008, affirming the requirement for two citizen parents. They either don't know, or have chosen what they feel is the more powerful side to ally with.

The significance of “Subject to the jurisdiction thereof” seemed irrelevant at first, in the context of Minor, since it applies to birthright citizens, not natural born citizens. For some, Barack Sr. was under US jurisdiction while he was here. Others argue that 'jurisdiction' means 'not owing allegiance to any other authority' - complete jurisdiction' - Senator Trumbell, who supported John Bingham's bill, which became the 14th Amendment, through the Senate. Trumbell's interpretation means baby Barry did not necessarily qualify for birthright citizenship, was not born a citizen, but since Hawaii didn't require jurisdiction, he became a citizen at birth, though not a natural born citizen. That is my attempt to interpret Danae's concise recital of US Code, 8 (1405).

Wong Kim Ark's parents were Chinese subjects, but Justice Gray's court made him a citizen anyway, perhaps because of a special treaty we had with China that isn't discussed in the decision, a decision which Leo Donofrio has made an excellent case for being ill-formed, and politically motivated. We accept anchor babies as citizens, jus soli babies born to illegal aliens. We know nothing of their allegiances. I know I'm still missing something important about 8 USC (1405). But US Code naturalizes citizens, so the baby would be naturalized at birth, but never natural born? I will ponder it, and perhaps Danae will clarify (assuming I'm not the only one in her class who doesn't understand the significance).

We can be pretty sure that the the parents of Sudanese Jihadi's don't have allegiance to the U.S., though if they are picked up by Sheriff Arpaio's soldiers, our new ICE rules will guarantee them Halal food, prayer rugs, Korans, transgender drug treatment if they claim to be changing sex, athletic facilities and their own Bluetooth headphones so that they can listen to entertainment from the Muslim Brotherhood Network or Al Jazeera.

If Obots could convince people that native born and natural born citizens were synonymous, then citizens born to one or more aliens could be claimed natural born. The Minor definition is logically inconsistent with that notion, but if the purpose is to defer judgment until the left destroys what remains of an independent judiciary, perhaps delay is the objective?

Danae, for those who have followed the Justia saga, revealed something else I didn't know, and which is very interesting. The connection of Justia CEO Tim Stanley to Soro’s Center for American Progress was already clear. If they remain on Youtube, you can find a dozen videos in CAP conference rooms with Tim Stanley as a panel member or principal lecturer. The new fact is that Carl Malamud, who was almost appointed Director of the US Printing Office, and was/is CIO of Center For American Progress, used his access to government archives to populate for-profit Justia.com’s constitutional archives. That sounds like a felony, becuase, while I don't know Justia's profitability, from the number of employees, 50 to 100 million seems reasonable. Whether it was Stanley or Malamud who edited the documents in 2008, documents which previously were displayed correctly on Justia.com, they knowingly falsified Supreme Court cases, and benefited financially from those fraudulent documents. Their purpose was clearly to derail efforts to use the Internet to learn about the previously obscure laws covering natural born citizenship, but in the process, defrauded users of the site who were told the two dozen supreme court decisions were accurate digitized reproductions. Perhaps it was just a dirty little secret among law school professors - "Don't cite Justia's cases which might cite Minor, because they are protecting Obama."

Danae also presents a different analysis of the Minor construction, which probably means she is correct, and which should be carefully read. That Mrs Minor could not be made a citizen by the 14th because she was natural born is an assertion I will have to ponder, because being a natural born citizen, the US certainly had jurisdiction over her parents, and thus over Virginia. I did not realize that the 14th bestowed suffrage on former slaves, and presume voting remained a state's rights issue, meaning post 14th former slave women would not have acquired suffrage?

I don't recall where I got my interpretation - probably from Donofrio or Apuzzo: Before the 14th, Mrs Minor's was the only Constitutionally defined class of citizen, and she didn't have voting rights then. The 14th didn't address suffrage. The Minor court had no problem with the assertion that being a natural born citizen made Mrs Minor a citizen. She didn't need 14th Amendment certification, but the court did need to affirm the definition in order to use it in a case, making it precedent, since they cited no other authority than natural law - "It was never doubted."

Danae observes that Equal Protection applied to male citizens would include suffrage. Why should gender be excluded? The 14th didn't address gender explicitly, which is why there was a 19th Amendment, but women would seem to have been included in "All persons born or Naturalized in the United States?" Still, we don't really care whether Obama was or was not a native-born citizen if we believe Chief Justice Waite and his court meant what they told us about natural born citizens. Of course, if Barry was not born a citizen at all, a claim made by Arizona Professor Gabriel Chin about John McCain, then he cannot be natural born either - the inverse relationship used by Justice Waite to assert that because Mrs Minor was a Natural Born Citizen, she was a citizen. That may be the reason Hawaii's loophole was so important. Barry's father was never under "complete jurisdiction", and Hawaii never asked because of US 8 (1405).

Our nation wouldn't know about Chester Arthur's usurpation but for Leo Donofrio. Politics keep his amazing discovery from being recognized by legal academia, while courts are fully aware and have already used it in decisions such as Indiana Supreme Court's abysmal Ankeny decision. It is no longer surprising that pundits and businesses like Hillsdale College censor their exposition of our Constitution, while their self-proclaimed expertise pays their bills and lots of books filled with the wisdom of our framers, unless that wisdom might be a threat to the current regime.

Until our books are burned, as has happened in many totalitarian dictatorships, the truth can be found on paper. Sadly, while digital documents are so easily corrupted and removed as Soros and Justia demonstrated, paper archives remain. There is an analog with our voting technology. Electronic voting is entirely unverifiable, which is why Germany has returned to paper ballots. Neither politcal party wants paper ballots, which sadly affirms their complicity, and may also mean that our votes may not insure the removal of the man who wants to destroy our form of government. Only programmers and clients know how votes are counted, because the process and the machines are opaque, and that opacity has been protected by the court. The thought police cannot yet prevail, but you'll know when they really burn books.

Thank you Danae. There is some irony that you got published by Pravda. It is clear that the Obama regime finds the 1st Amendment an inconvenient obstacle, just as Obama told us he found the the Constitution an obstacle to the changes he thought were needed in the U.S.

No matter what evidence is uncovered, the American people will disbelieve. They see no association between forgery and “our president.”

It was so nice to see you saw my post and mentioned it—really made my day!

Regarding this article—what a jewel. I read a lot of news everyday and had not heard of JustiaGate. Why is it important that information has been systematically erased or proof destroyed and the only documents presented that Obama is who he says he is are forged? Well, for one it takes a lot of people willing to commit fraud for all these things to have been erased or destroyed or manufactured. These are not things most of us have the power to do. Sheriff Arpaio is a hero in my eyes not only for taking this on, but being willing to keep going. He reminds me of an old bulldog that won’t give up because of media criticism. Those of us that find Obama’s deception as proven by the cold case posse extremely disturbing have to ask how this could happen.

1. You have to have a media that is “owned” by the democrats and willing to trash anyone that threatens their kingdom. There is a competition among reporters for destroying conservatives. Katie Couric got the prize for trashing Palin.
2. There must be a large segment of the U.S. population that swoons at Obama’s words while never realizing he hasn’t written any of them. He and Michelle love vacations, golf, shopping and ignoring laws they don’t like. Michelle is using her expertise as a mom to tell you as a mom what you can pack in your child’s school lunch. Obama is going to buy your vote by paying for your birth control with your neighbor’s money. Then he is going to pay for that neighbor’s mortgage being behind and kick in extra since their mortgage should have come with a guarantee. Obama will pay for this largesse with money from their neighbors who are paying their mortgage on time and paying for their own birth control.
3.It matters that there are activist judges chosen ahead of time by the democrats and the Obama administration guaranteeing any outcome they want no matter how unconstitutional.
4.A Congress that is more interested in what the media says or their adviser’s say the independents want rather than doing what is morally and constitutionally correct.

It saddens me that some on freerepublic only think this is a birther issue. People with a lot of power put Obama in the most powerful position on earth and it’s important to expose the fraud and the cover up that was implemented to do that. What were their motivations and why did every safety net in our Constitution seem to fail us? We’ve got a severe wound in our beloved country and the pus in it stinks and runs deep. We either take on those who have perpetrated this crime and refuse to let them cheat their way into a win, or we die.

“Nonsense. If he is a fraud and there’s a lot to suggest he is, we need to know, and the sooner the better. This is not a ball game. This is the future of our country, and President Obama is going to destroy our nation if we let him. He’s working on it day by day.”

We do know. We won’t convince the third of the country that loves him or the third that doesn’t care. And fighting lost issues DOES let him continue destroying the country. We need to fight to prevent him from being re-elected, not waste time fighting battles we’ve already lost. The third of the country that could care less about Obama’s citizenship, but doesn’t love or hate him CAN be persuaded that he’s been a poor president.

“Well heck, why should I be surprised that this nation is in the state it is with attitudes like that.”

No, your attitude that Republicans should waste time on battles they’ve already lost is what puts the nation in the state it’s in, contributing to Democratic victories when THEIR side spends all its energy fighting CURRENT battles.

You don’t change Roe v Wade by whining that it was an unconstitutional decision. You change it by proactively getting the right people on the Supreme Court in the future.

Likewise, short of a miracle from God, you can’t change the ALREADY DECIDED public opinion re Obama’s citizenship, no matter how unconstitutional his presidency may or may not be. The odds are probably a million to one against him ever being removed from office that way.

HOWEVER, we DO probably have about a 50-50 shot of removing him from office by fighting to elect the Republican nominee instead of him. THAT is where we should spend our time and effort.

I disagree Stat Man. Know why? Two words. Marco Rubio.

Any questions on that?

Never thought I’d see the day that I would look at Pravda with more respect than the LSM!!!
