Who is Obama's father? Read entire article and you will see why I asked. Maybe his father is American?
WND also reported on a letter Barack Obama Sr.
wrote from Hawaii to his political benefactor in Kenya, Tom Mboya, in
May 1962, discussing his wife, but he does so without mentioning Ann
Dunham, his Hawaiian bride and the mother of the president, Barack Obama
Toward the end of the 1962 letter, Obama wrote, “You know my wife is
in Nairobi there and I would really appreciate any help you may give
Clearly Barack Obama Sr. is referring to his first wife, Kezia Aoko,
whom he had married in 1954 when he was eighteen years old while she was
pregnant with their first child.
He instructs Mboya that his wife Kezia was then staying with her brother, Wilson Odiawo, in Nairobi.
WND has reported, and continues to report, on multiple legal
challenges to Obama over his status as a “natural born citizen.” The
Constitution, Article 2, Section 1, 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
Some of the lawsuits question whether Obama actually was born in
Hawaii, as he insists. If he was born out of the country, Obama’s
American mother, the suits contend, was too young at the time of his
birth to confer American citizenship to her son under the law at the
Other challenges have focused on Obama’s citizenship through his
father, a Kenyan subject to the jurisdiction of the United Kingdom at
the time of his birth, thus making him a dual citizen. The cases contend
the framers of the Constitution excluded dual citizens from qualifying
as natural born.
Further, others contend it’s impossible for him to be considered a “natural born citizen” as his father was a foreign national.
Prior to Abercrombie’s tenure, former Gov. Linda Lingle explained she
had her health director “go personally view the birth certificate in
the birth records of the Department of Health.”
She continued, “We issued a news release at that time saying that the
president was, in fact, born at Kapiolani Hospital in Honolulu, Hawaii.
And that’s just a fact and yet people continue to call up and e-mail
and want to make it an issue and I think it’s again a horrible
distraction for the country by those people who continue this.”
In fact, it was the health director in the state, Chiyome Fukino, who
stated, “I as Director of Health for the State of Hawaii, along with
the Registrar of Vital Statistics who has statutory authority to oversee
and maintain these type of vital records, have personally seen and
verified that the Hawaii State Department of Health has Sen. Obama’s
original birth certificate on record in accordance with state policies
“No state official, including Governor Linda Lingle, has ever
instructed that this vital record be handled in a manner different from
any other vital record in the possession of the State of Hawaii.”
Several months later, in July 2009, she added another comment:
“I, Dr. Chiyome Fukino, Director of the Hawaii State Department of
Health, have seen the original vital records maintained on file by the
Hawaii State Department of Health verifying Barack Hussein Obama was
born in Hawaii and is a natural-born American. I have nothing further to
add to this statement or my original statement issued in October 2008
over eight months ago.”
At that time, in two separate telephone interviews with WND, Janice
Okubo, the Health Department’s public information officer, told WND that
Hawaii law prohibited her from commenting on the birth records of any
But Fukino’s statement never clarified what records were on file, and what they said.
Among the various campaigns that are intended to raise questions about Obama’s past are:
a campaign to raise funds to pay the expenses of the Cold Case Posse
assigned by Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio to look into the validity
of Obama’s records. This is the team that already said there is
probable cause to believe the birth document is a forgery.
- There’s the complete findings documented by the Cold Case Posse.
- There’s the “Your Papers, Please?” edition of the Whistleblower,
the explanation for why there have been dozens of lawsuits over the
issue, and why millions of Americans want Obama to prove he’s
constitutionally qualified to be president.
- There’s a campaign to post billboards, reminding Americans just what they don’t know about Obama.
a petition to Congress seeks help from that body of leaders in
resolving the question over Obama’s eligibility to be president.
- There’s a “Birther on Board!” bumper sticker to raise awareness.
the “Where’s the Birth Certificate?” book by Jerome Corsi, detailing
the evidence that exists – and explaining what’s still missing.
- There’s a light look at the issue, from Molotov Mitchell, in his DVD “For the Record: I’m Not Crazy.”
- There are yard and rally signs to let people know what hasn’t been documented by Obama.
- A stylish T-shirt allows you even to wear the question.
