Skip to comments.October Surprise Equals Obama's Citizenship Question?
Posted on 10/23/2008 12:32:58 PM PDT by pissant
Obama announced on Monday that he would be traveling to Hawaii to visit his gravely ill grandmother. The Obama's spent their family's summer vacation in Hawaii and by all reports the candidate's grandmother has taken a turn for the worst in the last few weeks. I sincerely wish the best for Grandma Dunham, Obama's maternal grandmother.
I was listening to Rush Limbaugh this morning as he discussed Obama's four day delay in traveling to his stricken grandmother's bedside. Rush pointed out that most of us would move heaven and earth to get to a dying relative and not delay our departure for four or five days. Maybe there is another reason that Obama needs to be in Hawaii--a reason that threatens his candidacy for President of the United States.
There is a question that the mainstream media hasn't posed to the candidate in any meaningful way or independently researched (actually there are many more). But there is only one question that would require Obama travel to Hawaii. He needs to collect his original legal birth records--records the candidate has refused to produce even when a judge has ordered their production.
When Obama made his travel announcement he knew that there would be a summary judgment against him in the Berg case the nest day. Obama's lack of response to the court is a legal affirmation that he is not a legal citizen of the United States, and as of this writing Berg has proved his case. Obama has run out of time and can no longer deflect a serious question that threatens his candidacy. Judges really do not like it when you ignore their requests.
Under Hawaiian law, birth records are sealed and can only be released to the person named on the record. This is Obama's unstated reason for an emergency trip to visit his only remaining U.S. relative--the only person who can answer whether or not Obama was born in Hawaii or Kenya. And Obama can only request the necessary documents in person--if these documents exist at all.
His Kenyan grandmother is on record as stating Barak Obama Jr. was born in Kenya.
There has been a discussion for months that the Clinton camp had an October surprise up its sleeve. Is it conceivable that the Berg v Obama lawsuit is Hillary's revenge? After all, Berg is a democrat loyalist who filed this lawsuit just four days before the start of the DNC gathering in Denver. Just because the press showed no interest in the case when it was filed doesn't mean the case was without merit and Berg has done a good job of moving the case through the court.
Hats off to Berg! He has done more to protect the constitutional question of the nominee's legal right to run for office than the Democrat Party or national press has done. If Berg is correct--and Obama's refusal to produce documents are an admission Berg is right--than the senator never had a right to hold any public office in the United States, not even Illinois state senator.
It also appears that Obama's mother waived his citizenship when the family lived in Indonesia. Did Obama's Indonesian stepfather, LoLo Satoro, adopt the young Obama?
There are a number of other questions. Let's see if Obama can start answering the court after he returns from visiting his sick grandmother.
Jay Severin (WTKK Boston)is giving this major coverage.
I think it is time, this isn’t directed at you Pissant, to put up or shut up.
Rush just mentioned it for the first time today. He better not be shutting up.
Excellent. Savage gave it some life the other day as well.
Thank you Jay! Thank God for Severin on the radio in Massachusetts!!
In person? Really? That doesn't seem correct
Until a couple of days ago Severin had the towel thrown in on McCain winning the election.
Rush made an odd point when talking about the certificate. He said, “do you really think that the dems would dump him”? I would think that they would have no choice. It states on the Constitution that a person must be a natural born citizen to run for POTUS...doesn’t it?!
I think his problem is his Indonesian adoption. He became an Indo citizen and gave up US citizenship. When he came back to Hawaii he never met the requirement to become a US citizen again.
Tired of October suprise...
Want October truth!
don’t need no socialist!
I just hope (A) that there IS an “October Surprise,” and (B) that it’s devastatingly effective.
A guy at work today actually told me that it wouldn’t matter if Barry was born in Kenya. I said, huh? Hello? That’s unconstitutional!!! Then he said because Barry’s mother was a U.S. citizen it would make him eligible for president. What? Did I miss that day in civics class in high school? I thought you had to be a U.S. citizen, that’s why Arnold Schwarzenegger is ineligible because he was born in Austria. Can someone help me on this? Is my co-worker an idiot or am I the one that doesn’t know the Constitution?
Sometimes I don’t understand Jay. I think all his years of running campaigns causes him to over analyze.
I think Bill Clinton had a wind of this when he was asked if Obomber was qualified to be President. i think he said something like all a person need is to meet constitutional muster. I do not think he likes losing control of the crats to Dean and Co.
I’ll make a wager (payable in donation to FR) that the October Surprise is...there is no October Surprise.
Ted Kennedy can never be President either because he killed that woman on Cape Cod. He is, however, qualified to be a US Senator for the rest of this life.
Now do you see how the liberal mind works?
Please. Who here believes that if Obama is a Kenyan (1) it will ever be made public and (2) he will be forced out of the race? A nice fantasy, tho.
