Documentary raises questions about Obama’s eligibility to hold office

The extraordinary circumstances surrounding whether Barack Obama was born in the U.S. has now brought about a documentary from WorldNetDaily Editor Joseph Farah.

Farah and his news organization have been relentless in pursuing the matter, which is a legitimate and important task because if Obama can’t prove he was born in the U.S., he literally can’t legally be president of the United States. If that’s not important, what is?

Many opponents on both sides of the aisle have been attempting to make it look like the required proof has been revealed, but in reality it hasn’t, and that’s what the continual and dogged pursuit be Farah and his team is all about.

No matter what your political persuasion, you should be interested and concerned about anybody sitting in the highest office in America and insist they bring forth prove of citizenship via natural birth in the country. John McCain, when he was challenged on this very issue, supplied all the necessary documents and proof, so why not Obama?

What is this all about and why doesn’t the “certificate of live birth” prove anything?

In Hawaii, it isn’t well known that you don’t have to be born in the state to receive a certificate of this type, so it can’t be considered proof someone was born there. And the Obama administration is only citing this as the evidence Obama was born in the U.S. So why doesn’t Obama simply provide a real birth certificate to get this out of his hair? That’s the question and reason behind the pursuit of the matter.

Recently someone provided two old newspaper clippings which announced the birth of Obama in Hawaii. According to WND, “Hawaiian law specifically allows ‘an adult or the legal parents of a minor child’ to apply to the health department and, upon unspecified proof, be given the birth document.” In other words, it’s not proof at all, but an announcement which could have been based on the “certificate of live birth,” of which the birth could have occurred anywhere in the world.

No one can serve as president of the United States unless they were born in the country, according to the Constitution.

Anyway, that’s the backdrop behind the documentary named “A Question of Eligibility,” which will be available for purchase on Aug. 4 from the WND website. Aug. 4 is the date asserted by Obama to be his birthday.

“I guess you could say it’s a special birthday surprise for Obama,” said Farah. “But, honestly, I don’t think he’ll like it. In fact, I believe the facts revealed in this documentary keep Obama awake at night. This eligibility issue is the only issue that threatens not only the future of his presidency, but almost everything he thinks he has already accomplished as president.”

As far as the documentary itself, it includes four major presenters who discuss whether Obama is eligible to serve as president. There are New York Times bestselling author Jerome Corsi, author and activist Janet Porter, former presidential candidate Alan Keyes, and firebrand lawyer Orly Taitz, who has filed several lawsuits in order to force Obama to prove his citizenship.

I haven’t seen the documentary yet, but it is reportedly fast moving and based on a huge amount of investigative research from WorldNetDaily team.

Talking about the documentary, Farah concluded that “What we have produced here is a compelling and shocking documentary that will appeal both to those already steeped in the details of the eligibility story and those who need a video introduction to the major issues.”

It is definitely worth taking a look at in order to understand what has been a story mostly and effectively ignored by the mainstream media, but should be of extreme interest to any American who believes in the Constitution.

    You said, “No one can serve as president of the United States unless they were born in the country, according to the Constitution.” That is not what the Constitution says. You have to be a natural-born citizen. ~ You can be a nationalized citizen — from another country and becoming a citizen. (But you can’t be president.) ~ You can be a native-born citizen with one or both parents foreign born — but you can’t be president. ~ You can be a native-born citizen with two U.S. citizen parents — and THEN you are a natural-born citizen and are eligible to be president. The Senate Resolution that Obama/Soetoro helped write specifies that John McCain was not disqualified from being a natural-born citizen because he was born (in so many words) off the mainland due to his father’s military service and John Sidney McCain’s parents (plural) were U.S. citizens. Where Obama/Soetoro was born makes no difference as far as his eligibility to serve as president; he’s disqualified because his father was a British subject. His mother did not fulfill residency and age requirements to pass her citizenship on to her son. And then he was adopted by Lolo Soetoro. I just want to see the birth certificate because he looks much like a clone of Malcolm X to me!
