Kenya: Authorities Release Barack Obama’s “Real” Birth Certificate

Nairobi | The Office of the Principal Register of the Nyanza Province, in Kenya, has finally released 11 exclusive documents concerning Barack Obama’s alleged birth and early childhood in the country.

These official papers had been requested for years by the Tea Party Patriots, an American conservative organization, to no avail, but the Kenyan Supreme Court recently ordered authorities to release the documents, based on a law on “access to information.

These files, if they turn out to be verifiable, could mean that Mr. Obama had no legal right to become the American president under the country’s law.

The papers released today suggest that Barack Obama was actually born on March 7, 1960, in Lamu, Kenya, more than a year before his father moved to Hawaii, where he allegedly met his mother.

This contradicts most of the documents presented by the presidential office over the last years, suggesting that either the American or the Kenyan papers are actually faked.

The official version of Barack Obama’s birth presented by the White House in the past was that he was born on August 4, 1961, at the Kapi’olani Maternity & Gynecological Hospital (now called the Kapi’olani Medical Center for Women & Children) in Honolulu, Hawaii.

His parents were Ann Dunham, from Wichita, Kansas, and Barack Obama, Sr., a Luo from Nyang’oma Kogelo in the Nyanza Province, in what was then the “Colony and Protectorate of Kenya”.

Mr. Obama Senior was attending the University of Hawaii at the time, where he supposedly met Ms. Dunham.

A Kenyan publication, The Standard, had reported in 2004 that Obama was “Kenyan-Born”, but the lack of proof presented had led the rest of the mediatic world to dismiss the article has fake or unfounded.

Jim Geraghty of the conservative website National Review Online may have sparked further speculation on June 9, 2008, when he asked Obama to release his birth certificate.

Geraghty wrote that doing so could debunk several false rumors circulating on the Internet.

Such rumors were very numerous at the time, covering many topics.

These included namely: that his middle name was originally Muhammad rather than Hussein; that his mother had originally named him “Barry” rather than “Barack”; and that Barack Obama, Sr. was not his biological father, as well as the rumor that Barack Obama was not a natural-born Citizen.

Mr. Obama and the White House had given no answer whatsoever to that request, choosing to simply ignore the question, but had finally released some documents that were allegedly Mr. Obama’s birth certificate in two different forms.

The release of these certificates had seemed to put an end to the rumors at the time, but it is to be expected that the “Kenyan documents” will fuel a whole new wave of rumors and conspiracy theories.

    Hmmm. No byline for this story. No actual documents. No source for the report. No names. And looking at a map, Lamu is nowhere vaguely any place that has anything to do with the Obama family or their tribe, and it’s not in Nyanza Province.

    You guys believe the most idiotic stuff.

    • Rich Schaum | May 29, 2014 at 10:52 pm |

      Maybe you should read the Middle East news for all the other lies about Obama. Don’t get your feelings hurt, they speak of him as we do in Egypt, Jordan and Turkey.

    • See the Jay Treaty whereas King George III stated that if a colonist did not swear fidelity to the King he was to be considered a U.S. citizen. Chester Arthur’s, father did renounce Britian and naturilized as an American on Chester Arthur’s fourtenth birthday. Chestur Arthur was born in Vermont to a Irish immigrant and member of the Clergy in graduating Belfast College. His Mother was a natural born American citizen of her Father’s Service with the Continetial Army. Paternally, his Father lost all British subject rights in taking the oath of alligence to the U.S., and establishing his residence in the U.S.

    Obot’s already here. That means there is something to this.

    1. If Obama was born in Kenya in 1960, Stanley Ann could not have been his mother, she was in Mercer Island Washington.

    2. Obama would have NO US Parents, making him a foreigner.

    3. Obama was dropped in Hawaii by his Kenyan relatives

    4. Obot’s know their time is up

    • Rich Schaum | May 29, 2014 at 10:42 pm |

      The Brits did a DNA test and found Ms Stanley Ann Dunham was not his mother.
      The only good news about that is, Obama’s mother may not have been a wannabe porn star after all.

    • This story in just more conformation with the current the court case in the UK, that Ann Dunham was not his mother. The witness has the genetic proof to boot with Affidavits.

    His mother, Ann Dunham, was born in Wichita, Kansas on 29 November 1942; which means that all of her children, no matter where on the face of the Earth they are were born, makes them “Natural Born US Citizens”. If a parent is a citizen of the US, her offspring are citizens of the US as well, including President Barack Obama. Only stupid people don’t know that, a.k.a. The Tea Party. Isn’t it a little sad that someone in Ireland knows more about the US Government and how it’s laws work, than most of it’s own citizens. End of Discussion.

    • The Tea Party are sad sad people.

    • Tells me all I need to know about this place

    • Amen, Holly. As they say here in the USA, “YOU GO, GIRL!” Thank you for the best argument for our President’s US citizenship. The Tea Party just loves those right-wing conspiracy theories.

    • I see this is another bither site that deletes post they don’t like lol

    • Ran Talbott | May 29, 2014 at 8:26 pm |

      “all of her children, no matter where on the face of the Earth they are were born, makes them ‘Natural Born US Citizens’”

      Mmmm, no: if they’re born outside the U.S., there are some restrictions on who’s eligible. Most children would be, but some aren’t. There are also some bureaucratic procedures to go through to ensure they’re properly registered as U.S. citizens.

      Anyone actually in such a situation should consult with a lawyer, because the child could lose its claim of citizenship if it’s not handled correctly.

    • Holly, where does that state that? Obama would just be a born citizen under the 14th Amendment, NOT NATURAL born. You have to be born and retain 100% US citizenship for that. Obama was born British, became Kenyan and Indonesian through his Indo step father Lo Lo Soetoro. We do not know if he ever had US citizenship, did he ever regain it?

      BTW, where are these alleged documents WNDR ? Please provide them tout suite.

    • bob strauss | May 29, 2014 at 8:53 pm |

      Holly McCann,
      Obama was born almost a year before Obama Sr traveled to Hawaii where he would supposedly meet Ann Dunham. Ann Dunham is not Obama’s mother. Your comment is out of line.

    • The definition of natural born citizen was recalled by Chief Justice Waite in Minor v. Happersett as follows:

      “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.”

      By that definition Obama, Cruz, Jindal, Rubio, and Santorum are not natural born citizens.

    • 1st of all, if Anne Dunham was born on 29 November, 1942, that means she was 18 years old when Obama was born, and would have conceived when she was 17, and supposedly, she traveled to Kenya a couple of years before, when she first met Obama Sr. That means she met him at age 15 and had a passport, and traveled alone as a minor to have this romance. Possible but not likely in the early 50’s. Something is fishy here.

      2nd of all, no matter where on the face of the earth Obama was born, he was a US citizen, but not a natural born Citizen. His father was Kenyan, not American, and until Dec 1963 Kenya was a British colony. Under British law he would automatically be a British Citizen, and he had dual nationality at birth, so he is NOT a ‘natural’ born US Citizen, even if he was born in Hawaii.

    • sabrena hummell | May 29, 2014 at 9:11 pm |

      I am not tea party to start but you need to back your opinion… this specific law is only for military and the parents must at birth claim the citizenship of the offspring. Just because you are american and you decide to go to another country for personal issues does not make the OFFSPRING american. they MUST BOTH BE NATURAL BORN AMERICAN AND ON AMERICAN VISA FOR MILITARY. I am so glad i do not claim anything but being a NATURAL BORN AMERICAN. Thanks for your opinion but provide facts to change my mind. GOD BLESS AMERICA

    • So since you are the moral authority on the issue, what’s the difference between “natural born citizen” and “citizen” cus both are mentioned in the constitution in that cause… i’ll wait

    • sabrena hummell | May 29, 2014 at 9:15 pm |

      Rhonda i agree with you well put and explained

    • Natural-born citizen and born citizen are different classifications of citizenship evidenced by the differing terms used in the U.S. Constitution.

    • ray mckinney | May 29, 2014 at 9:34 pm |

      Apparently living in Ireland has damaged your brain. If Obama was born in the White House (which he wasn’t) and his father was a foreign national (which he was)…it makes no difference who the mother was or where she gave birth …… I guess I’m just one of those stupid Americans that has to have someone living in Ireland to tell me what my Constitution says and doesn’t say…..why don’t you try commenting on something you know something about.

    • Rich Schaum | May 29, 2014 at 10:31 pm |

      It takes two (2) U.S. Citizen parents. Reading comprehension is always a problem with those that take up for Obama.

    • Rich Schaum | May 29, 2014 at 10:38 pm |

      Obama had three (3) citizenships. American, UK, Indonesian. Which one/s did he renounce and where is that document/s?
      Records show Obama had at least AKA names. Which one was his birth name?

      unless she gave up her citizenship.

    • May Good Win | May 30, 2014 at 12:00 am |

      You are making a common error. BOTH parents MUST BE U.S. CITIZENS in order for a person to qualify to be President. How do you think McCain qualified when he was born in Panama? (as a side note, Obama requested that McCain’s citizenship status was investigated by Congress to see if he qualified. However, strangely enough, Obama’s citizenship status was never investigated by Congress.) No matter where Obama was born, his father WAS NOT/NEVER BECAME a U.S. citizen. THIS IS WHY, ACTUALLY, OBAMA SHOULD BE REMOVED FROM OFFICE, ASAP.

    • Ed Hunnicutt | May 30, 2014 at 12:02 am |

      Some Americans do know the Citizenship Statutes, and some of the are Tea Party.. Durham was 17 yrs, 8 mos when Barack was born, therefore she wasn’t a qualified citizen having spent several months prior in What would become Kenya. Any offspring under those circumstance would no be “Natural Born US Citizens” She was a minor in a foreign country.. Go back and check the US Statues at the time…

    • Fred Kirkey | May 30, 2014 at 12:29 am |

      Holly, If you had read the article, it specifically says “suggest that Barack Obama was actually born on March 7 1960, in Lamu, Kenya, more than a year before his father moved to Hawaii, where he allegedly met his mother” This would preclude her even being his mother and your argument becomes invalid.

    • You are not very educated or you would
      know of the only real supreme court case on natural born in 1874 look it up.

    • Smug people should not misspell their written words. Also, you’re incorrect about American citizenship.

    • sharon hodges | May 30, 2014 at 3:47 am |

      Not necessarily dum dum. Children born outside the United States and not as military or state department dependents, are not US citizens by virtue of their parent’s US citizenship. You are highly misinformed.

    • TruthandFreedom | May 30, 2014 at 4:00 am |

      Both parents must be American Citizens for a child to be “Natural Born”! Not one parent — BOTH!

      Likewise, when Obama was entered in school in Indonesia his mother had to denounce all American citizenship of him, in order for him to attend!

    • Sorry, not the end of discussion. To be a natural born citizen means BOTH parents are citizens. Which means, whose the daddy?

      You are wrong… it takes both parents being American citizens for a baby to be a natural born citizen. Typical progressive… just because you want something to be true doesnt mean it is. Long live the TEA PARTY!

    • Oh Holly, stay across the pond, we have enough confusion here with outsiders trying to get in.

      Obama is not a “natural born” citizen. If that were so, then Ted Cruz can be President too!

    • Libs R Stupid | May 30, 2014 at 10:44 am |

      I hate to burst your “I love Obama bubble” but you are wrong.

      “Although the “citizenship by birth” rules have been complex, the February 2001 Child Citizenship Act (CCA) simplified the process. Now, a child who is under the age of 18, was born outside the U.S., and has at least one U.S. citizen parent automatically acquires U.S. citizenship upon entry into the country as an immigrant. No further paperwork is necessary. The parent may request a Certificate of Citizenship and U.S. Passport for the child if proof of the baby’s American-ness is desired.

      But this process only applies to children permanently residing in the U.S. If the child is under 18, was born outside the United States, but lives abroad in the physical and legal custody of a U.S. citizen parent or U.S. citizen grandparent, the parent or grandparent must apply for naturalization of the child. In addition, more criteria must be met.

      The U.S. citizen parent or grandparent must have been physically present in the U.S. for five years before the child’s birth, at least two of which were after age fourteen. Further, the child must be temporarily present in the U.S. for the naturalization process and to recite the oath of allegiance. Of course, if the child is too young to understand the oath, this requirement may be waived.

      At this naturalization ceremony, the foreign-born, foreign-resident babies gain not only a certificate of citizenship but also membership into an exclusive club. The Constitution rules that only “natural born” citizens can hold our highest office, so it seems these new Americans won’t grow up to be President either. The regulations suggest parents who contemplate baby’s future run for the White House may want to consider permanent residence in the United States after the birth of little George or Hilary.”

      If, and I mean IF, Obama was born in Kenya according to the above, Obama would not be eligible as his mother had not been in the United States for 5 years before his birth and she did not permanently reside in this country after his birth.

    • Not true Holly, though I admire your tenacity. You need to gain access to immigration charts for the era and you will discover the facts you seek. Ironic that you call others “stupid”. End of Discussion.

    • Holly,
      The fact that one is born to an American parent does not automatically make you a US citizen. There are several requirements for this to be effective. Also, only one of his parents was a natural born American. As ultra right wing as the Tea Party may be, the President of the USA MUST be born on US soil, and raised in the US.

      Besides that, his followers have all drank the koolaid. Regardless of where he was born, he and several presidents before him have been inept at best. Our government has sold us out to the corporations.

      I love my country but I hate my government!

    • This shows me these replies are from Obama lovers who think he is god. No matter how many lies that Obama spews you will protect his back The Obama machines attacks the Tea Party because we are a high threat but you turn your head away from the IRS scandal. Look in the mirror if you want to see what is sad…


    • John Sampson | May 30, 2014 at 4:27 pm |

      You might want to read some US history , the constitution and some previous scotus rulings concerning US citizenship. The whole reason and purpose for the NBC clause in the const was to help eliminate any possibility of foreign influence in the presidency. The const states that the president has to be a nbc or a citizen at the time of the adoption of the const to be eligible. So clearly their is a distinct difference between a nbc and a citizen. The first 7 presidents were all born here on this soil but none were nbc, However, all were eligible as just citizens at the time. So why were they not nbc since they were all born here? simple. their parents were not citizens at the time of their birth . The framers of the const used a reference called vettals law of nations to help write the constitution. in that book a nbc is a person born in a country to citizen parents. The 14 th amendment clearly states that a person born here or the jurisdiction thereof is a CITIZEN HERE. DOES NOT say nbc just citizen. read some history on the author of the 14 amendment. Jon Bingham. He stated on the house floor several times that a nbc is one born here to citizen parents etc…. read previous scotus rulings on citizenship. Wong kim ark. etc minor v heppersette etc all cases reflect the const, vettals law of nations etc…. Simply being born here makes one a citizen, not the same as a nbc. both parents have to be US citizens and the child born here for the child to be a NBC.

    • Holly, I would normally agree with your statement with one exception and that is if at any time Barack Obama declared he was a “Kenyan Citizen” he would lose such US Citizenship, because we do not hold with Dual Citizenship with Kenya. Therefore, it is “Rumored” that he said he was an “International Student” from Kenya and received subsidies or financial aid for being a said “International Student” he would effectively rejected US Citizenship.

    • Kimberly Freed | May 30, 2014 at 4:41 pm |

      Holly McCann,
      In order for a child to be a natural born U.S. Citizen they have to be born on U.S. soil or a U.S. Military base, and both parents must be a U.S. born citizen. There is a difference between a natural born citizen and a U.S. citizen. In Barack Obama’s case his mother is a natural born U.S. citizen his father a Kenyan, Barack Obama born in Kenya. Mother moved him to India as a young child and then moved him to live with his grandparents in Hawaii, Obama is not I repeat not a Natural Born Citizen. End of discussion. Laws get touchy when it comes to this situation, so you better damn well know what your talking about before calling people stupid.

    • Al Walker | May 30, 2014 at 4:52 pm |

    • freedom fighter | May 30, 2014 at 5:03 pm |

      forgery is a felony, like the forged birth cert on the whitehouse website

    • his mother, born in Kansas USA makes him a US citizen. to be a “natural born citizen” requires BOTH parents to have been US citizens at the time of his birth. this is not my opinion, but a legal term defined by the SCOTUS in a PRECEDENT case in MinorVHappersat. it doesn’t matter where BHO was born, or his mother, it is openly acknowledged his father was NOT an American citizen, not only barring BHO from being a “natural born citizen” as specifically required by the constitution, but making him a DUAL citizen of the UK, further cementing his ineligibility. he is a criminal.

A Child born to a US Citizen outside US needs to apply for Citizenship with US Immigration and Citizenship Services, USCIS, and is not considered a Natural Born US Citizen. (This is different from the biological function of natural birth)

      I am not a birther however can’t stand a misleading statement as a Lawyer.

    • Holly, you must not have paid attention in your civics class. To be a “natural born citizen” as required to be president of the United States of America, Maybe this will shed some light on it so you can become better educated….

      “Every human being born within the jurisdiction of the United States of parents not owing allegiance to any foreign sovereignty is, in the language of your Constitution itself, a natural-born citizen”…barry’s daddy was kenyan, NOT American, so that would make barry ineligible no matter what, then we come to see that he was listed as Indonesian at a young age and went to college under a foreign student visa and financial aid, which means he was not even a citizen…….

    • Edward C Noonan | May 31, 2014 at 6:42 am |

      Barack Hussein Obama was born in Kenya to a minor child (Dunham, age 18) and to a African foreign national father. Furthermore, he was a bastard child because his birth father was already married to several tribal African native women. This polygamous marriage to Ms Stanley Dunham was and still is “illegal and void.”

      The opposite of “NATURAL” is “ALIEN.” This was an alien birth in ALL ways.

    • Walter Spychalski | May 31, 2014 at 12:16 pm |

      Being a Natural Born Citizen requires both parents to be Natural born citizens.

    • Bill Dickey | May 31, 2014 at 2:01 pm |

      Stanley Ann is not his mother. DNA evidence proves that her parents share no DNA with Obama. Therefore it is impossible for her to be his mother. Also, pictures of Stanley taken in Sept.1961 clearly show that she was not pregnant. Obama’s presidency the greatest fraud ever to be perpetrated on the American people.

    • Holly, You need to reread the laws, it doesn’t matter who your parents are, you have to be born on US soil, territory or US base to be known as a natural born citizen. The natural born citizen clause which is not formally recognized by the Federal or lower courts speaks about what you mention but unfortunately since that clause is not recognized you must refer to section 1 article 2 of the constitution.

    • ”When one parent was a U.S. citizen and the other a foreign national, the U.S. citizen parent must have resided in the U.S. for a total of 10 years prior to birth of the child with FIVE of the years after the age of 14.” Stanley Ann Dunham did not meet requisite status according to blog discovery. One commenter said, “She was not old enough to register Obama’s birth in Hawaii or anywhere else in the U.S. as a Natural Born Citizen as she did not meet the residency requirements! Backing this statement up, another commenter reiterates:” The law specifically outlines the requirements for a CITIZEN mother to confer citizenship to her baby. Ann Dunham was NOT old enough-case closed!”

    • D.R. Taylor | May 31, 2014 at 4:51 pm |

      If it is true that Obama was born in Kenya in 1960, a year before his father moved to Hawaii and met his American “mother”, then who is his actual mother.

      If it is true that Obama was born in 1961 in Hawaii to Obama Sr. and Ann Dunham, a U.S. citizen, then why did Obama take measures to prevent the disclosure of his birth certificate?

      When applying for a drivers license, you present your birth certificate, when applying for a passport, you present your birth certificate.

      If you want to work for the FBI, the CIA or the Secret Service and protect the First Family, EVERYTHING ABOUT YOUR LIFE IS KNOWN, including every grade you ever got at any school you ever attended.

      It stands to reason, that if you are applying for the top administrative position in the world (Pres. of the U.S.)and being that the ONLY requirements (far, far less than if you want to work for the CIA or the S.S.) are that you be 35 years of age and a natural born U.S. citizen, and you need to produce but one document to satisfy the requirements (your birth certificate), you’d have no problem presenting it.

      It cost $50 to secure a copy of your birth certificate. Obama chose instead to pay lawyers,$200 hr. or more, so as to prevent his birth certificate from being seen.

      When running for office in ’08, he said he wanted transparency and disclosure within the government, but it’s obvious he did not want this to apply to himself.

    • AZ Ranger | May 31, 2014 at 7:00 pm |

      Holly, you might want to quit drinking the Communist Kool-aide, and. Actually read the documents concerning INS rules. Both parents are required to be citizens if the birth was not on American soil. According to their own lies. Since his dad was foreign born, Ann had to be of a certain age as the date of birth to conform citizenship on the child, but she missed that date by a little over 3 months, and that assumes we wasborn in HI. A nd, mthat is a very big not a chance! He avlso would have lost his citizenship when adopted by Sotero in Indonesia as a child!
      Sorry, but their are too many holes to plug in the story for anyone but a libtard to buy into!

    • I believe natural born citizen or citizen difference is common could have two illegals from say, iran ,jump border in mexico,have a child in u.s.and child is an american citizen.Iranian parents raise child to hate u.s. work way through college ,on our dime,to become poltican and few yrs.later run for office.Common sense

    • Someone born of an American citizen parent out of the country might be considered an American citizen but NOT a “natural born American citizen” which requires birth on American/US soil.

    • Wow! I would check your facts before you call everyone else stupid! Especially trying to school Americans on American law. Well, consider yourself schooled! Duh… even I know this!

      Clearly, and quite well documented, our founding fathers used many writers for influence when drafting our constitution including one named Vattle.

      Quote of section #212, Chapter 19, Book 1, Law of Nations, by Vattel, written in 1758: “212.Citizens and natives. The citizens are the members of the civil society; bound to this society by certain duties, and subject to its authority, they equally participate in its advantages. The natives, or natural-born citizens, are those born in the country, of parents who are citizens, those children naturally follow the condition of their fathers, and succeed to all their rights. The society is supposed to desire this, in consequence of what it owes to its own preservation; and it is presumed, as matter of course, that each citize3n on entering into society, reserves to his children the right of becoming members of it. The country of the fathers is therefore that of the children; and these become true citizens merely by their tacit consent. We shall soon see whether, on their coming to the years of discretion, they may renounce their right, and what they owe to the society in which they were born. I say, that, in order to be of the country, it is necessary that a person be born of a father who is a citizen; for, if he is born there of a foreigner, it will be only the place of his birth, and not his country.”

      End of discussion!

    • Can you not read? Obama is not the offspring of Ann Dunham.

    • Assuming you’re right–that it only matters that his mother was born here–does it not bother you in the least that if this article is true, it means that Obama has been lying about a very fundamental aspect of his life for years, and what’s more, has publically attacked and ridiculed those who question his birth certificate? If he lies about something like this–what else is he lying about?

    • Not so if your mother ways born here no matter where you were born. Did she claim dual citizenship, did she renounce citizenship? If dual then she could register her son to what country she choose. But bottom line is he can’t run a 5 and dime store let alone the United States of America. No such thing as free lunches, work for it America. Plus a very Godless man. I’ll take a man of God in the office again like Busch.

    • BOTH parents have to be Natural Born citizens of the USA. Don’t forget his mother gave up her and her sons US citizenship when they lived in Indonesia.

    • Wrong! My cousin was born in Newfoundland to TWO natural born US citizens. My aunt and uncle were required to jump through lots of hoops and cut through lots of red tape to get him dual citizenship to bring him into the US when they decided to move back.

    • Holly McCann is ignorant to our laws. She needs to read up on qualifications to obtain citizenship when born outside the US and certainly doesn’t make you a Naturally Born Citizen as the law requires!

    • Right Wing Conspirator | June 3, 2014 at 9:46 pm |

      Holly that is a fine argument as long as Ann is actually his mother. As a conspirator, why did BHO attend college as an exchange student? If you say he didn’t, them get his transcripts released to prove it.

    • To be a president of the USA you must be born IN the USA, not just a citizen. Look it up.

    • MabelLou Brown | June 6, 2014 at 4:04 am |

      The natural born citizenship might be true, however, as a natural born citizen he would not have been able to attend college under a foreign scholarship. Therefore, he can not have two citizenships, and that removes his “natural” one, if it is true at all!

    • And Barack Obama wrote a book clearly stating that his father was not an American citizen 20 years before he ran, and no-0one noticed. Not even Jerome Corsi, who punlihed “the Obama Nation” in may 2008, but among all the reasons he listed why Obama was a bad choice and shouldn’t be president, the fact that Obama only had one American citizen parent was not among them.

      That’s because no-one knew the fact that “everyone knows.” The birthers only made up the 2 citizen requirement in June 2008. And that was by reading a bad translation of a book that was only mentioned once in the Constitutional debates, and that nothing to do with citizenship.

      Hell, Phil Berg, the birther that launched the first Birther case, says that the “2 citizen” requirement is flat out wrong.

    • Anchor babies born in other countries are not US citizens unless the father was from America.For Obama to be natural born both parents must be born in America which was never the case.

    • Oh honey….No, just no.

    • Holly McCann’s remark that “only stupid people don’t know” how a child born outside the US can be a US citizen is so true. But it’s Holly that is the stupid one. I am one of those kids born about the same time as Obama outside the US. I have my papers to prove it. In 1961, a child born to one US parent was NOT a US citizen and had to be naturalized to be a US citizen. A child born to two US citizens outside the US is and was a US citizen at birth. If Obama was born outside the US to one US parent, he is not a natural born US citizen.

    • Lester Eine | July 15, 2014 at 9:28 am |

      Shut the fuck up, Terri. The Tea Party UNDERSTANDS THIS FACT and didnt dispute it. Unlike your stupid ass, the Tea Party UNDERSTANDS the Constitution. Too bad the President doesnt follow it. You DO KNOW this is a parody news site, right? Ignorant bitch.

    • that is so…but the president must be born IN THE UNITED STATES.

    • Virginia Robinson | July 28, 2014 at 8:18 pm |

      No, Holly McCann it does not. He would have had duel citizenship…America and Kenya. At age 21 he would have to decide which one he wanted to keep as you cannot have duel citizenship and be an American Citizen.

      As for being president, the rules for that state that am American citizen born outside the US to American parents can be president (such as a child born to a parent in the military). If that person’s father was not an American citizen, that person can be president IF his mother was at least 25 when he was born…which she was not. Therefore, having been born in Kenya, he is not eligible to be president. Even if he was born in Hawaii (the state, not the town in Kenya), he still is not eligible to be president because Hawaii was not a state at the time of his birth.

      All the constitutional issues aside (since ovomit does not follow the Constitution) we are stuck with ovomit because of the color of his skin. He has been given a free pass and a get out of jail free card due to the color of his skin. I know it. You know it. Worst of all, ovomit knows it. He could commit murder and those with the authority to curtail him would do nothing. Oh, wait. He did. And they didn’t.

    • Sleepinggiant | August 4, 2014 at 12:57 pm |

      Actually, you are incorrect. A natural born citizen per 1866 SCOTUS ruling is a US citizen born from TWO US citizens. This is why Ted Cruz is also not eligible.

    • A “natural born citizen” must have two parents who are citizens. Oblamer’s father was not a U.S. citizen, therefore he can not be a natural born citizen, regardless of where the birth took place!

    • carl blackman | August 6, 2014 at 1:00 am |

      natural born means must be born in a US state, territory, or military hospital or on Embassy grounds, no exceptions to this constitutional requirement. a naturalized citizen can not hold the office of POTUS.

    • That is NOT the definition of NATURAL BORN, which of course would prove that Mr. Obama KNOWS that and it is why he kept that secret from the public.

      IF being natural born ONLY necessitated his mother being born in the US, there would have been NO need to hide anything as Mr. Obama has repeatedly done.

      Mr. Obama can think critically. Why can’t some of you?

    • You’re 100% incorrect.

    • Your an idiot

    • Even if he was considered an American citizen by default- his “citizenship” was nullified when his “American Citizenship” was renounced so that he could live in and attend school in Indonesia- which at the time was experiencing civil unrest and had laws that only their “citizens” could attend school there…his American status was nullified and he was considered a citizen of that country…

      …just saying.

    • KATHLEEN BUCHANAN | August 24, 2014 at 5:18 am |

      Natural born citizen” are required by the U.S. Constitution to be President of the United States of America (POTUS), BOTH parents MUST be U.S. Citizens, Obama’s admits his Father was Kenyan and a British subject and therefore it is clear that Obama is not and can never be considered a “natural born citizen”.

    • Terri, you go far beyond sad, sad state with your complete lack of knowledge.

    • This is what Congress decided!!!

      Any one born outside the United States, both of whose parents are citizens of the U.S., as long as one parent has lived in the U.S.
      Any one born outside the United States, if one parent is a citizen and lived in the U.S. for at least one year and the other parent is a U.S. national.

      If Obama was in fact born in another country, and his Father was NOT a U.S. national, then he has no right being the President of the United States, and it doesn’t matter if you are Republican or Democrat!!!

    • In the constitution, they left it open for Congress to decide what a “Natural Born Citizen” is. Congress decided this:

      Any one born outside the United States, both of whose parents are citizens of the U.S., as long as one parent has lived in the U.S.
      Any one born outside the United States, if one parent is a citizen and lived in the U.S. for at least one year and the other parent is a U.S. national.

      So, if in fact, Obama was not born in the U.S. and his Father was not a U.S. national, which we all know he was NOT, then legally, he should not be President of the United States, and I don’t care if you are Republican or Democrat.

    • Sorry to bust your bubble, but constitutionally the only office in America that requires (Both) parents to be Naturalized Citizens is the office of the US President. Regardless of party affiliation. However, if both parents are out of the USA at time of birth the offspring is still naturalized because both parents are naturalized. Better read up a little Holly. No disrespect intended just the facts.

    • Hey, it looks like you attended public schools; even if your parent/parents were born in America, if the child is born in another country that child is not a citizen of American until they go through the process. Check your facts before opening your mouth.

    • You’re correct. The children of a natural born citizen are American citizens. However, the prerequisite for president is that they are born in the USA

    • I see all of you are in favor of the worst president since WW2 IMPEACH HIM

    • So… if you married a man from America in Ireland, Your children would be American citizens? Talk about an anchor baby.. He also went to school in Indonesia where Americans were not allowed in that country at that time because of the war. Yet he was able to prove he wasn’t American to get into school.

    • No wonder why Eric Holder is stepping down now. He don’t want to defend the Obama in charge in court and ruin his own career. The things he did in office are catching up with him anyway and this deal was just making the whole mess to big to stick around.

    • just because your mother is a US citizen does not mean the child is when born abroad. There are rules and you have to be born on US soil to be president. get your facts straight before you make a blanket statement..

    • Neil is correct. If an American military family is stationed in Japan and their child is born on base they are an American. Because the base and American Embassy is American soil. If that child in born off base it is Japanese but can get duel citizenship.

    • His mother renounced hers and Baracks US citizenship. He had to be an Indonesian citizen to go the school there

    • Holley McCann…I have no idea where you got your information, but as a US citizen with a foreign born Daughter, who by birth right, is not a US citizen, as you state in your post!!!! She is a citizen of the country of her birth. END OF DISCUSSION!

    • 4 Supreme Court Cases ruled on Natural Born Citizen.

      The citizens are the members of the civil society: bound to this society by certain duties, and subject to its authority, they equally participate in its advantages. The natives, or natural-born citizens, are those born in the country, of parents who are citizens.

    • since you are so smart I guess you know that not only does bh Obama have to be a natural born citizen but both his parents are also required to be natural born citizens. which his daddy ain’t! who is his daddy?

    • both parents have to be born here !

    • Falsifying government records is crime

    • Sorry, Holly. Though you are correct in your edification, Obama became and Indonesian citizen by adoption. Indonesia does not now, nor have they ever, recognized dual citizenship. Thus, in order to be adopted, Barry Soetoro had to renounce his American citizenship.

    • Jan Crawford | December 21, 2014 at 3:14 am |

      This is correct about offspring(s) are citizens of the United States, if one parent was born in the USA “BUT “when that offspring reaches the age of 18 and renounced his citizenship to the USA He is a foreigner. And in this case this happen When Barry Soetoto (Obama ???) enrolled into Columbia U @ NYC As a foreign student

    • sandra hamilton | January 7, 2015 at 4:50 pm |

      his father was born in kenya ,both parents have to be usa citizens for him to be THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES !!!!! SO HE IS NOT ABLE TO BE PRESIDENT ,IF YOU DONT BELIVE ME LOOK IN THE CONSTITUTION . ARTICLE 2 SECTION1 PARAGH 4

    • Sorry Holly But the fraud and usurper barack hussein obama is not a natural born US citizen and may not even be a US citizen . Your boy barack hussein obama is a fraud !

    • Timothy Brophy | February 21, 2015 at 4:58 am |

      Thats incorrect. Anyone born outside the U.S. is NOT a U.S. citizen.

    • You are incorrect. The law at the time, was strangely worded, for a mother to give her citizenship to her child, she had to be 14, plus 5 yrs a resident of the USA after the age of 14, thus, 19. She was only 18. I do not know when or why this law was changed. Alls, Obama Sr was a citizen of Great Brition and the law at the time said child had citizenship of the father. Thus, he is not legal to be president, period. He was born in Kenya, mom was at the beach when she went into labor, step grandmother was a witness. Kenyan BC is on line. POTUS and VP are to be native born, that means born to two parents, both citizens of the USA at time of child’s birth. Reference letter from John Jay to Geo Washington in 1777, Commander in Chief was to be held to a higher level of citizenship than other offices. Please read and see what I say is legit before commenting.

    • I don’t care what u all say, no matter what, he is still the worst thing to happen to our country. He is dictator minded and a complete ass hole.

    • About EIGHT months have passed since this article was posted, and the documents that it claims were released by Kenya have not been shown yet. (Now, I wonder why?)

    • I don’t care where he was born .. He’s a a POS President and I have no respect for him as man either. Need our Country and WH back from this Imposture !!

    • I try to say that to all the people who say he’s not American, also he wouldn’t have become president if he wasn’t American

    • You obviously don’t know what a ‘natural born citizen’ of the US is. BHO does not fit any of the criteria. First, both parents have to be US citizens at the time he is born. Neither can be a citizen of another country. Otherwise, according to your definition he could be ‘natural born’ from two countries. If it takes a ‘law’ to make him a citizen, then he is a citizen by law and not natural born. Another point, how do you know who his mother is and where she was born? I don’t think there’s much doubt that you don’t know who his father is.

    • Holly, you may not know as much as you think. I would re-read the constitution, and compare to all the amendments and law changes since the late 1700’s. I have a family member born outside the US who holds an SF-240 and is not eligible. We were counseled on this in the birth Country as well as the US upon return of certain requirement the child will never meet, but born to US Citizens.

    • Nina Van Sweden | April 5, 2015 at 8:39 pm |

      Actually, the accepted criteria for years has been that a “natural born citizen” was one who was (a) born in the US and (b) born of parents who were US citizens. The whole idea was that we should never have a president or vice president who might, having been born elsewhere and/or raised by parents who are citizens of another country, have divided loyalties. This is why there was a problem when John McCain ran the first time. At that time members of Congress, including Mr. Obama, signed a bill declaring John McCain eligible to run. He was born in the Panama Canal Zone. I am not sure if Congress even had the right to pass such a bill as what is needed is a clarification by the Supreme Court as to what the founding fathers meant by “natural born”. It is obvious that they intended more that just born to an American parent.

    • Ok, I was a little confused because I lived overseas in Germany. Our kids were born in military hopitals and we are US citizens. We just had to make sure and go down to the embassy to fill out a paper. The kids were US citizens. There were a lot of Americans over there. I just thought if his mother gave birth in Kenya, so what, because she would just have to be sure to fill out a piece of paper, and since she’s a citizen, then he would be too. But I guess some people are saying it’s different for military. Also, the Mexican mothers that come here and have their babies, want them to have US citizenship. If they didn’t want that, they wouldn’t have to claim that and their babies would be Mexican.

      Also, if Dunham isn’t his mother, who in the heck is? This is what I’ve heard, from a former Black Panther. Obama’s mother was CIA. She was told to marry Obama Sr. because he and his cronies were supporting a Kenyan that the US was backing vs a Communist backed leader there. The University of Hawaii had CIA ties. They would take leaders, from third world countries, and groom them for leadership positions. The next man she married also had very close ties to a leader that the US backed. I doubt she loved either man. Also, she worked for USAID which is, in itself, a CIA front.

      In other words, there was a whole lot of spooky happenings around him and Dunham.

    • 0bama`s father was an English Subject from Kenya at the supposed time of 0bama`s birth , and that is the child`s nationality ; that of the father. . Credit to Rhonda for the following ~ no matter where on the face of the earth Obama was born, he was a US citizen, but not a natural born Citizen. His father was Kenyan, not American, and until Dec 1963 Kenya was a British colony. Under British law he would automatically be a British Citizen, and he had dual nationality at birth, so he is NOT a ‘natural’ born US Citizen, even if he was born in Hawaii.

    • I was born on the US Air Force base in England. Both of my parents are US CITIZENS,HOWEVER BECAUSE I WAS NOT BORN ON AMERICAN SOIL my mother had the choice to decide my citizenship with England or USA. I could not run for president because I was not born in the continental USA. I am recognized as a citizen with State Department only. My mother could have chosen to allow me to choose citizenship when I became of age. The constitution states presidential candidates have to be born on American soil

    • Children of American citizens are not “automatically” US citizens. My sister was in the US Air Force when she had her first daughter with her husband who was also in the US Air Force, both American Citizens, while stationed in Japan. She had to go through quite a bit of trouble and paperwork to declare her daughter a US Citizen. So I saw that it’s not just “automatic”.

    • Holly your right only if Mr. Ovomit was born on a U.S. military base or on US soil in a foreign country that would include in the US consolate which at the time of ovomits birth did not exists in kenya

    • Barbara Elwood | August 5, 2015 at 12:56 am |

      The US Constitution requires the NBC -Natural Born Citizenship – for office of US president. In that clause it requires that TWO parents be of US Citizenship. Please take the FREE course on the Constitution offered on line by Hillsdale College and read it for yourself.

    • All you Twinkies comment are going have to eat a lot, and I do mean a lot of crow very soon. It will be a good idea for you to duck back to Russia or what ever socialist/communist country you came from when Obama goes to prison. So sad you are worst traitors in two and one half centuries

    • Patricia Whyno | August 5, 2015 at 4:10 pm |

      when she married obama’s father according to govt’ documents she relinquished her citizenship-when she married obama’s step father she became an Indonesian citizen–so obama is not an AMERICAN-

    • Linda Arnett | August 5, 2015 at 6:16 pm |

      It has always been known that BOTH PARENTS have to be NATURAL BORN CITIZENS and then it doesn’t matter where the child is born. His mother was the only citizen. Therefore he is not eligible to be president. People want to chance our laws to fit their own agenda. We now have the most corrupt government that we’ve ever had.

    • Lance Corporal USMC | August 5, 2015 at 7:37 pm |

      Holly you are NOT completely correct on your statement, I would suggest you dig a little deeper into OUR laws before calling U.S. citizens out.

    • Holly, do still have teeth?

    • >> how it’s laws work <> most of it’s own citizens <<

      There is NO apostrophe, because the word "its" itself indicates possession. With an apostrophe, it is a contraction, and is equivalent to "it is." End of Discussion.

    • Constitution says the person running for office must be BORN in AMERICA.

    • Read the US constitution: If you are here illegally then your offspring are here illegally too because YOU are here illegally which negates the offspring being naturalized US Citizens you fuckkin loser!

    • Holly. No matter where on the Earth they are born? Well how about what the fathers citizenship is and where they are born? At the time of his birth barry father Obama senior was a British subject. Technically barry was a British subject and thus at least held dual citizenship which is not natural born.

    • THere is a law that he had to live in the USA for 10 year after being born to be able
      to become President(or territory or USA millitary base) That did not happen. A LIAR!
      LIAR, LIAR!

    • Yes you are right. 5 years ago I meet the daughter of the Nurse that said her mother was the Nurse when President Obama was born in the hospital in Honolulu. That ended it for me.

    • Victor D Phillips | November 2, 2015 at 2:55 pm |

      Conspiracy theories asserting Barack Obama is not a natural born citizen of the United States gained steam during his 2008 presidential campaign and continue to garner support in certain communities. The “birther” scandal has been made light of by the media and by President Obama. However, if it were the case that Obama’s birth certificate were forged or otherwise invalid, under Article Two of the U.S. Constitution he would be ineligible to be the president of the United States.
      Article Two of the U.S. Constitution he would be ineligible to be the president of the United States.
      Article Two of the U.S. Constitution he would be ineligible to be the president of the United States.

    • Never assume Dunham was HIS biological mother. Most likely she “stole” a child and made it appear to be hers.

    • No being born on foreign soil while having an American citizen for a patent does not make them a natural born citizen. Same as a soldier stationed in Germany having children, those children could not be president. Obama is a traitor and should be tried for treason for his treachery and allowing foreign troops on American soil.

    • Obama is a bastard in more ways than one. No-one knows who the sperm donor of Obama was. There is some evidence that it was Frank Marshall Davis. There is more evidence that it was an Indonesian cult leader. Obama has some resemblance to Davis, much more with the cult leader, and virtually none to Obama Snr.

    • Holly, you need to check out the vetting requirements for “Natural Born Citizen” because there is more to it than having a mother who was a USA citizen.


    • Being a US citizen and being able to run for President aren’t always the same thing.

    • Well as long he was born on American soil it dont count sorry read the rules of birth

    • Talk about ignorant!

      If “natural born citizen” is the same as all other kinds of citizen, then WHY THE HELL would the Founders use the natural born citizen requirement exclusively to the Office of President (and VEEP)?

      …AND WHY would they need to make an exemption for those who were a citizen of the States, at the time of the creation of the Constitution?

      There are so many nuts in America, I wonder how America made it this far.

    • Holly I hate to bust your big EGO on thinking you know American Law, BUT regardless where he was born, he returned to Kenya and became a citizen of that country & went to school there HENCE WHY HE HAD A FOREIGN STUDENT IN COLLEGE HERE . Let me UPDATE your under knowledgement of our laws AMERICA DOES NOT ALLOW DUEL CITIZENSHIP SO EVEN IF HE WAS AMERICAN IN WHATEVER WAY U CLAIM OR OTHERS CLAIM ” HE FOREFITED” AMERICAN CITIZENSHIP MOMENT HE WAS IN KENYA .. Maybe open mouth insert foot not always greatest idea ITS ANNOYING TO THINK A FOREIGNER KNOWS OUR LAWS BETTER THAN WE DO. I am NOT A Tea Party either sweets

    • O K, how come Mexican barn here by Mexican mother are citizens here in the USA?
      I don,t know much but you figure that one out.

    • Ummmm, clearly Holly,you do not understand the law regarding “Natural Born ” status at the time of 0bamas birth. Ann Dunham, though a citizen, did not meet the requirements at the time of 0bama’s birth.

      That single-parent requirement has been amended several times, but under the law in effect between 1952 and 1986 someone must have a citizen parent who resided in the United States for at least 10 years, including five after the age of 14, in order to be considered a natural-born citizen.

      So why all the brouhaha about where Obama was born, given that there’s no dispute that his mother, Ann Dunham, was a citizen? Because his mother was 18 when she gave birth to the future president in 1961 and so couldn’t have met the 5-year-post-age-14 residency requirement. Had Obama been born a year later, it wouldn’t have mattered whether that birth took place in Hawaii, Kenya, Indonesia, or anywhere else.

    • Michael Norris | December 30, 2015 at 10:08 pm |

      Holly McCann, you are incorrect and you need to get educated as to how one becomes an Article II “natural born Citizen”
      Go here and you will find irrefutable proof that Barack Obama is NOT a “natural born Citizen” of the US.

    • Good! Then Cruz is in!

    • “Obama, assuming he was born in the United States, is a citizen of the United States at birth, but only by virtue of the Fourteenth Amendment. He is not and cannot be a natural born citizen under the common law because while he was presumably born in the United States to a U.S. citizen mother, he was born to a non-U.S. citizen father.”

    • Not natural born has to have both parents as citizens

    • That is not entirely correct. The mother has to have maintained US residency for five year prior to birth

    • Wrong you are. While it’s true that Ann Dunham was a US citizen, she was also under 18 years old at the time of his birth. That presents a problem. She was a minor child at the time of his birth and had not lived the requisite number of years in the US after the age of 14 in order to confer “natural born citizenship” status to her offspring. There are actually complex rules and requirements surrounding the definition of “natural born citizen.” You should familiarize yourself with them.

    • Holly, I hate to burst your balloon, especially as you worked so hard to blow it up, but, when Barry was born, it was in Kenya, and, as his mother was underage at the time–17–, AND the fact the country was a British Colony at the time, negates the claim Barry would be an American!

      Also, Barry started college here in the states as a foreign student on a Fulbright Scholarship. Now, IF he were born in Hawaii as YOU state, WHY would he enter an AMERICAN school on a FOREIGN VISA on the Fulbright Registry as a FOREIGN STUDENT?

      Sorry, but your argument doesn’t hold water.

    • Actually in order to be Natural born regardless of where born BOTH parents MUST be citizens at the time of birth. That is so that no other country would hold sway over the allegiances of the individual. BHO only has one citizen parent thereby eliminating him from the Presidency. Where he was born is inconsequential.

    • Jennifer Usher | January 11, 2016 at 11:12 pm |

      Hey Holly, u are a dumb shit why is Barry legal to serve USA but not Johnny McCain-Political Expedience.
      The African Americans because of pigmentation wanted Obumer and look they finally woke up bitch.

    • Holly: Please don’t confuse “natural born citizen” as used by our founding fathers with a citizen of the USA. ARTICLE 1, SECTION 8, CLAUSE 10 of our constitution tells you where to look for the meaning of “natural born citizen”. In order to be a ‘natural born citizen of a nation, BOTH parents must be citizens of that nation when the child is born.

    • Stanley Ann Dunham and Frank Marshall Davis are Obama’s parents. However they never married. Both were US citizens at the time. At 3 mos pg Ann’s father found Obama Sr and paid his college education to marry his daughter.
      She divorced him and married Lolo Soetoro. Did either of these men adopt Obama? Obama Jr went to Indonesian schools until about 10 years of age.
      Then back to Hawaii to stay with his maternal grandparents. Where Ann made arrangements for Davis to have a role as ‘tutor’ outside of school.
      Find the sealed missing records!!!!!!!!!

      Ms McCann, As a descendant of “The Original First Family” of Ireland, I am ashamed to hear such ignorance from you! Clearly, you have no clue as to o the U.S. Constitution or our laws in the USA. Stanley Anne Dunham could not possibly have conferred citizenship upon Barack Hussein Obama, as she was just barely 18 when he was born at Coast Provincial Hospital in Mombassa, Kenya, on August 4, 1961. The law in the USA at the time is as follows: “to confer citizenship, at least one parent must have attained the age of 21 years”: by way of the following formula: ” must have been born in the USA, be a citizen there 10 years or 16 plus 5 years”. That is the law in the USA in 1961…Period! Firstly; Obama’s parents were not married when the senior Obama found he would be charged with Statutory Rape for having sex with an underage 17 year old Dunham, he immediately fled the country (Hawaii) and returned to Kenya. Dunham was 8 months pregnant at the time and was distraugt that she was abandon! That is why Obama had his ” able mentor”, former murderer, bank robber,anarchist and fugitive, pen his “Dreams of My Father”, because Obama had never met his father! His father refused to come to the Coast Provincial Hospital at his birth. However, Obama’s grandmother attended. Obama is the biggest fraud ever accomplished upon a so called “intelligent society”! As a former “Chief Criminal Investigator for the United States, I have investigated this thoroughly! Obama is not now nor has he ever been a citizen of the United States!

      No if she left the country for a year or more before he was born she lost her citizenship. He was born in Kenya his grandmother said. If he had been born to one US citizen in the US he would only be a US Citizen, NOT A NATURAL BORN US CITIZEN.

      The conveyance of citizenship for a foreign birth would not apply sin the law in 1961 required that the parent be 5 years past the age of 14 at the time of birth. 0bama’s mother was a few months short of 19 at the time. Regardless, he would not be a “Natural Born Citizen” if she was already 19, but would be a citizen. Since he is neither, he should be on trial for treason for attempting to overthrow our Constitutional Republic government.


    • Apparently you are one of the many low-information voter on the the left. Even Wikipedia has the controversy correctly expounded on.

      “Status as a natural-born citizen of the United States is one of the eligibility requirements established in the United States Constitution for holding the office of President or Vice President. This requirement was intended to protect the nation from foreign influence.[1]

      The U.S. Constitution uses but does not define the phrase “natural born Citizen”, and various opinions have been offered over time regarding its precise meaning. The consensus of early 21st-century constitutional scholars, together with relevant case law, is that natural-born citizens include, subject to exceptions, those born in the United States. Many scholars have also concluded that those who meet the legal requirements for U.S. citizenship “at the moment of birth”, regardless of place of birth, are also natural born citizens.[2][3] Every president to date was either a citizen at the adoption of the Constitution in 1789 or was born in the United States; of those in the latter group, there have been six that had a parent who was not born on U.S. soil.[4]”

      So that’s the reason he forged his birth certificate… makes perfect sense ?

      Not end of discussion. Have you Holly filled out an FS-240 at an American consulate/Embassy? If you have not then you need to take heed from those of us who had a child born overseas. WE also are well aware of the changes that occurred in 1973, no longer permitting children to be placed in their mother’s passport. There are other documentation which is scrutinized at the Embassy, not the Birth Certificate as those presenting at the Embassy within thirty day, as we were required to do in Abu Dhabi the attache is very particular in terms of confirming the Validity of the parent’s marriage. the parent’s passport is already been lodged as they can’t get into an American Embassy without presenting their passport . .

    • Hey Holly, you sound like some bitter middle-age woman…thank god you don’t live in the US!

    • So ….. then why did Obama hold back his information if he were considered a “natural born citizen” ? Did he himself not know that ?

      Sorry, but your info is incorrect. The definition of “natural born” is defined in a naturalization law enacted in 1952. A child born IN THE US automatically qualifies.

      It gets sticky if the child is born outside of the US.

      A child born of TWO US citizens outside the US can still qualify, but, BOTH parents need to be, for natural born to apply.

      BHO, Sr, was NOT a US citizen, so, if Obama, Jr, actually HAD been born in Kenya, then he would NOT qualify for natural born status, and, thus not qualified to serve as president.
