VERY QUIETLY OBAMA'S CITIZENSHIP CASE REACHES THE SUPREME COURT
AP - WASHINGTON, D.C.
In a move certain to fuel the debate over Obama's qualifications for the presidency, the group "Americans for Freedom of Information" has Released copies of President Obama's college transcripts from Occidental College ... Released today, the transcript school indicates that Obama, under the name Barry Soetoro, received financial aid as a foreign student from Indonesia as an undergraduate. The transcript was released by OccidentalCollege in compliance with a court order in a suit brought by the group in the Superior Court of California.
The transcript shows that Obama (Soetoro) applied for financial aid and was awarded a fellowship for foreign students from the Fulbright Foundation Scholarship program. To qualify, for the scholarship, a student must claim foreign citizenship.
This document would seem to provide the smoking gun that many of Obama's detractors have been seeking. Along with the evidence that he was first born in Kenya and there is no record of him ever applying for US citizenship, this is looking pretty grim. The news has created a firestorm at the White House as the release casts increasing doubt about Obama's legitimacy and qualification to serve as President article titled, "Obama Eligibility Questioned," leading some to speculate that the story may overshadow economic issues on Obama's first official visit to the U.K. In a related matter, under growing pressure from several groups, Justice Antonin Scalia announced that the Supreme Court agreed on Tuesday to hear arguments concerning Obama's legal eligibility to serve as President in a case brought by Leo Donofrio of New Jersey . This lawsuit claims Obama's dual citizenship disqualified him from serving as president.. Donofrio's case is just one of 18 suits brought by citizens demanding proof of Obama's citizenship or qualification to serve as president.
Gary Kreep of the United States Justice Foundation has released the results of their investigation of Obama's campaign spending. This study estimates that Obama has spent upwards of $950,000 in campaign funds in the past year with eleven law firms in 12 states for legal resources to block disclosure of any of his personal records. Mr. Kreep indicated that the investigation is still ongoing but that the final report will be provided to the U.S. Attorney general, Eric Holder. Mr. Holder has refused to comment on the matter...
Subject: RE: Issue of Passport?
While I've little interest in getting in the middle of the Obama birth issue, Paul Hollrah over at FSM did so and believes the issue can be resolved by Obama answering one simple question: What passport did he use when he was shuttling between New York, Jakarta, and Karachi?
It makes the debate over Obama's citizenship a rather short and simple one.
Q: Did he travel to Pakistan in 1981, at age 20?
A : Yes, by his own admission.
Q: What passport did he travel under?
A: There are only three possibilities.
1) He traveled with a U.S.... Passport,
2) He traveled with a British passport, or
3) He traveled with an Indonesia passport.
Q: Is it possible that Obama traveled with a U.S. Passport in 1981?
A: No. It is not possible. Pakistan was on the U.S... State Department's "no travel" list in 1981.
Conclusion: When Obama went to Pakistan in 1981 he was traveling either with a British passport or an Indonesian passport.
If he were traveling with a British passport that would provide proof that he was born in Kenya on August 4, 1961, not in Hawaii as he claims.. And if he were traveling with an Indonesian passport that would tend to prove that he relinquished whatever previous citizenship he held, British or American, prior to being adopted by his Indonesian step-father in 1967.
Whatever the truth of the matter, the American people need to know how he managed to become a "natural born" American citizen between 1981 and 2008.

It was a hard birth due to his birth weight in 1981.

When obama takes over for good and is the leader of the world, he will slap the spit out of trump's mouth if he ever opens it again. The world owes us this money, we are borrowing it.

President Obama and the media will do whatever to distract, and deflect from President Obama's almost four year poor performance record as President. And what exactly is Obama doing today, or even yesterday, or any day, to fix the Economy. Here is what he is doing, he is Campaigning!
Remember the good old days under Bush when the media told us that 4.1% unemployment was terrible and the economy with a 3.5% GDP was the worst since the Great Depression? Now we are told by the same media that 8.1% unemployment and a GDP of about 1 - 2% is a robust recovery. Who do you think is controlling the election?

Americans are tired of Obama's socialist agenda and economic failures. A recession is when your neighbor loses his job. A depression is when you lose yours. A recovery is when Obama loses his!!!! God bless America.

Yes tater you are right Clinton did sign N.A.F.T.A.Having said that.......during the debates that election year both Clinton and George Sr. said they would implement N.A.F.T.A only Ross Perot was against it.So even if Sr had ben elected we would still have it.

No, because there were no good old days under Bush.

No, because that 4.1% unemployment rate didn't exist under Bush, either. You must be thinking of Clinton.

There are lots of things that have and are running this country in the ground.Bad leaders and politicians etc.One of the things that has really hurt this country is the health care situation.Right now the health care companies can deny certain procedures and operations that YOUR physician says you need.Why?You pay your premiums or your company does.This practice should have been stopped long ago.The only reason it has not is because it would stop the insurance providers from making huge profits.Think about it if you have full coverage auto insurance and you make your payments every month and you have a accident........would you want your insurance company to say well we will repair the fender but not the hood?Well get ready its coming and faster than we all think.So yes it is about the leaders of our nation,the ones who should have stopped these such things long ago but wont because most of them have stock in oil,pharmacutical,and insurance companies.So while we bleed they sit back and count the cash.

Doctors and Hospitals are just as guilty, they constantly push uneeded prescriptions and the prices they charge are utterly rediculous, I recently had colonoscopy, it lasted about one hour and cost $8000 !

What has obama done to help the economy other than raise the debt to unsustainable levels? I would like to see him tax everyone who makes over $250,000 for every penny they have and see the results in the economy.

What do you expect, when people voted for that bum Obama.
everyone makes mistakes,i know, i voted for J Carter in 1981.Alot of people that voted for Obama
don't remember Carter, because they were to young.
but i made a promise with myself that i would never
vote for another democrate as long as i lived,and i've kept that promise.i was out of work for 2 years and then Regan got in office and slowly after a year i started finding work. Well obama is ten times worse than J Carter! I am praying now that he hasn't dug us in such a deep hole we cannot get out.im probably preaching to the choir
in Tenn. you go to cities like Los Angeles or Detroit,New York City etc.. those voters are some real idiots!! over 50% of the voters now live of the backs of hard working americans,recieving government checks. So we have all those idiots
that are going to the voting booths. You may not realize America stands alone now, as to freedom.
Europe is bunch of ass-wipes,that want hand-outs
I just pray we can defeat the fools ,because i know there is a lot of good decent voters in America. Pray for victory over tyranny and Obama's
evils and stand for Goodness !!!
