Obama's Birth Certificate...

...appears to have been located, IN KENYA, at least according to WND. Of course, it could always turn out to be a fraud:
WASHINGTON – California attorney Orly Taitz, who has filed a number of lawsuits demanding proof of Barack Obama's eligibility to serve as president, has released a copy of what purports to be a Kenyan certification of birth and has filed a new motion in U.S. District Court for its authentication. The document lists Obama's parents as Barack Hussein Obama and Stanley Ann Obama, formerly Stanley Ann Dunham, the birth date as Aug. 4, 1961, and the hospital of birth as Coast General Hospital in Mombasa, Kenya.

No doctor is listed. But the alleged certificate bears the signature of the deputy registrar of Coast Province, Joshua Simon Oduya. It was allegedly issued as a certified copy of the original in February 1964.

WND was able to obtain other birth certificates from Kenya for purposes of comparison, and the form of the documents appear to be identical.

As much as I despise national politics, I figured this story was important enough to post. Have a look at the document in the link. Looks pretty real to me. But who knows... This week should be interesting. ---Update!!--- Looks like you illustrious host has been had. It appears to be a hoax.



    What happens to Judge Sotomayor’s confirmation as Supreme Court Justice if the Constitution’s “natural born citizen” Presidential eligibility requirement is subsequently determined applicable to Barack Obama on the basis of Article 2’s exclusion of dual citizenship birth (doesn’t matter whether Obama born in Hawaii since his dad was Kenyan/British citizen at the time)? It would seem prudent, if not dereliction of Constitutional duty in not so doing, for the United States Senate to defer voting on Judge Sotomayor’s confirmation at the very least until there is determination, now imminent, on standing in Kerchner v. Congress (USDC NJ) on that precise issue (Congressional failure to take up the raised and known constitutional ineligibility question prior to declaring a Presidential winner in the vote of the electoral college). For the full Senate now to proceed to vote to confirm Judge Sotomayor (an otherwise lifetime appointment) before then, would be a knowing and very substantial exacerbation of any inherent Constitutional crisis — compounding the previous Congressional dereliction. That is, the Executive Branch, as well as conceivably all actions of a Congress under a President determined ineligible, would leave the Supreme Court as an essential unfettered remaining Branch of the Federal Government, that is unfettered so long as Mr. Obama’s nominee to the Court is not yet confirmed by the Senate.

    Will not one Senator, let alone Republican Senator, raise this issue on the Senate floor? The nation is watching.

  2. While I'll be the first to note that I'm probably not the most qualified to comment on legal matters, I would say that you've got a pretty good point in that pretty much everything Obama's government does is going to look questionable so long as the legitimacy of his standing is in doubt.

    It also strikes me that this president looks like precisely the sort of character that the whole "natural born" citizen proscription of the constitution was designed to keep out of office, i.e., someone for whom international sentiment carries just a little too much weight in his decision making.

    Sounds like a "close-minded" rule on the surface, yes, but it's looking ever more prescient. The Founders knew what they were doing.
