Enough With the Birth Certificate Stuff

I have to confess, there have been times when I have wondered about Obama’s birth certificate and whether he was born in the U. S. But I haven’t researched the matter or given a lot of thought to it.

Thankfully, the National Review has and clears the matter up, at least for me. For better or for worse, the man was born in Hawaii.

And I heartily agree that those of us who are right of center have much, much better things to do than obsess about Obama’s birth certificate. He is a great danger to our freedoms; his agenda must be opposed. That is all the more reason not to divert our energies to this birth certificate stuff. Not to mention that it plays into Obama’s hands for us to act, well, nutty.

It is past time to drop it.

Here’s Obama’s dilemma in a nutshell (READ VERY CAREFULLY AND DIGEST):

If BHO shows his original long form birth certificate, indeed showing he was born in Hawaii, it will also show his father was American citizen, Frank Marshall Davis, not the Kenyan/British citizen, Barack Obama Sr. While that would allow Barack Jr. to be POTUS eligible as BOTH a “citizen”/“native born citizen” AND an Article 2 “natural born citizen” — that is, born to two American citizens on American soil — it would simultaneously show he is a fraud hiding his real father — an unacceptable political debacle.

If, on the other hand, BHO keeps hiding his original long form birth certificate — while simply repeating, without showing, he was born in Hawaii — he can still CLAIM BOTH he was born in Hawaii AND his father was the Kenyan/British Barack Obama Sr. This would enable Barack Jr. to claim he’s a “citizen”/“native born citizen” but it would mean (if a federal court would ever get around to declaring and thus far no one has standing to bring the suit) that he’s NOT an Article 2 “natural born citizen” and thus not eligible to be POTUS — a legal/constitutional debacle since all acts under an illegal POTUS are void.

So it seems, BHO has elected option one until forced to go option two because for now it looks like no federal court will ever find a plaintiff with standing. (Of course, there’s the additional issue of BHO losing American citizen status if/when he became an Indonesian citizen — that is, IF he returned and was naturalized he would be a legal citizen, but would lose both native and natural born status, and, IF he returned and was not naturalized, he would be an illegal immigrant unlawfully in this country — but we’ll leave that for another day.)

Comment two is a perfect example why we christian must engage in political issues in a very christian way, using the scriptures as a guide as well as the prayer book. Wedding our traditional christian positions to any american political position or ideology can lead to a very dark place. History is full of examples of this very common mistake. Even Billy Graham has acknowledged how he was seduced and used by a certain political posturing
