SO OBAMA WANTS IT TO GO AWAY?

SO OBAMA WANTS IT TO GO AWAY?

 

Globe Magazine has an article in the December 8, 2008 edition that provides details about Larry Sinclair and his new book “Obama & Larry Sinclair: Coke, Sex, Lies & Murder?”

 

Obama remained cool headed during his historic run for the White House shrugging off every nasty attack. But sources close to Obama now say he is incensed by the book and labels it as a “vicious and hurtful attempt to taint” the incoming president.

 

“Barack Obama is absolutely livid about this book,” reveals a Beltway insider. “He says its all a bunch of crap and he wants it to go away.

 

“This inauguration is not only important to the nation, it’s important to the entire world,” noted the insider. “We don’t want to see Larry Sinclair’s outrageous words take away from that one bit.”

 

“…sources say Obama’s wife Michelle is equally upset by the
allegations…”

 

Now people close to the President-elect declare “it’s time for Sinclair to stop making his lurid allegations and forget about writing a book.” “Enough is enough,” blasts the insider. “Our country is in trouble right now and we don’t need this nonsense.” But Sinclair says he has no plans to scrap his book.

 

OBAMA DOESN’T WANT THE WORD OUT ABOUT THE BOOK!

 

Barack Obama and the Obama team do not want word of my upcoming book to get out. Or is that Obama and the Obama team do not want the TRUTH about him revealed? I say it is the latter.

 

I believe the world that Barack Obama says is so in love with him, should know exactly what this man is about, how he and his associates manipulated the world media into giving him a free pass and suppressing this story and the attacks his organization leveled against me.

 

This book will give in-depth detail of every aspect of this encounter from the Chicago 1999 trip to current date.

Sorry Barack, but this book is going to come out, and I will make sure it is center stage in DC for the some 4 million you plan on busing in to witness you taking your “Throne.”

Past Controversies Hang Over Obama’s Cabinet Picks

Cabinet picks could produce bloody confirmation hearings

FOXNews.com

Saturday, November 22, 2008

As President-elect Barack Obama quickly selects officials for his administration, attention is starting to turn to the potential obstacles they face in Senate confirmation hearings.

The Associated Press, citing a Democratic source, reports that John Podesta, a leader of Obama’s transition team, had told Senate aides on Friday that Obama hoped for a speedy confirmation so the new administration could get to work quickly thereafter.

But past controversies involving some of his picks could make for bloody hearings.

The latest list of Obama’s expected Cabinet selections includes Hillary Clinton for secretary of state, Timothy Geithner as his Treasury secretary, Eric Holder as his attorney general, New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson for commerce secretary and Arizona Gov. Janet Napolitano for secretary of the Homeland Security Department.

Senators will have to decide in the confirmation hearings whether to broach Richardson’s involvement, though marginal, in the Monica Lewinsky scandal, as well as Napolitano’s work in the Anita Hill sexual harassment case and Holder’s support of President Clinton’s controversial pardon of Marc Rich.

Although none of these nominations is expected to fail, it is possible some could be delayed.

Richardson‘s nomination could be haunted by two incidents. 

First, he offered Lewinsky a job at the United Nations in what prosecutors called an attempt to buy her silence on behalf of President Bill Clinton, according to FOX News’ Washington Deputy Managing Editor Bill Sammon’s book, “Meet the Next President.”

Richardson also could face a Capitol grilling for accusations he faced from both Democratic and Republican senators for failing to properly safeguard nuclear secrets after he left his U.N. post to become energy secretary.

After delaying Richardson’s appearance before the Senate Armed Services Committee in 2000 for inquiries into security lapses at Los Alamos National Laboratories, Democratic Sen. Robert Byrd of West Virginia told him he would never again receive Senate support for any office he sought.

“You have squandered your treasure,” Byrd told him.

And though Napolitano, who was re-elected Arizona’s governor in 2006, has spent all of her political career in that state, she is no stranger to Washington controversy.

As a private attorney in Phoenix in 1991, Napolitano was part of the legal team representing Anita Hill, a former Equal Employment Opportunity Commission colleague of Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas, whom Hill had accused of sexual harassment. Her work on that case postponed Napolitano’s own Senate confirmation as U.S. attorney but did not derail Thomas’ confirmation as a Supreme Court justice.

At the time, some Republicans suggested she coached a witness for Hill into changing testimony. Napolitano refused to answer questions about that on grounds it would violate the lawyer-client confidentiality agreement.

She was the Clinton-appointed U.S. attorney for Arizona when the Justice Department decided against prosecuting Sen. John McCain’s wife, Cindy, for stealing prescription drugs from her medical charity, but she took no part in that case because she was awaiting Senate confirmation, on which McCain was to vote.

The biggest obstacle facing Obama’s choice for attorney general, Eric Holder, could be his pardon of Marc Rich during the Clinton administration.

Rich was the fugitive billionaire who was given a pardon by Clinton on his final day in office. Rich’s estranged wife, Denise Rich, was a high-paying donor to Clinton.

Senate Republicans have told Obama aides that the Rich pardon would come up during hearings but that the nomination likely wouldn’t be held up, according to a person involved in the talks.

Left Cuts Obama Slack For Now

(The Politico) This story was written by Glenn Thrush and Ryan Grim.

As a presidential candidate, Barack Obama boasted of opposing the Iraq War from the start.

But as president-elect, he has come to the rescue of surge supporter Joe Lieberman and flirted with the idea of keeping on Bush administration Defense Secretary Robert Gates – and now he seems poised to nominate war-authorizing Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton to serve as his secretary of state. 

The sound from the left: not silence, but no howls of betrayal, either.

“Anybody who has reacted after two weeks is not a serious person,” said Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.).

Members of Obama’s loyal liberal base – from the Netroots to campus liberals to Hill Democrats – are watching closely as the candidate’s vague incantations of hope coalesce into cold, concrete presidential decision making. It’s not a seamless transition, but so far the left seems to be cutting Obama some favorite-son slack. Then again, he’s been president-elect for only two weeks – even milk bought on the day he was elected hasn’t had time to go sour.

“People continue to be excited,” said Rep. Earl Blumenauer, a Democrat who represents an Oregon district he described as one of the five most progressive in the nation. “They’re still going to websites. There are campaigns they can be involved with. They’re still networking and raising ideas and moving forward.”

Anti-war voters are used to being disappointed. Some were flabbergasted when George W. Bush won a second term in the midst of the war in 2004; others were disillusioned when the Democrats didn’t do more to stop the war after capturing majorities of the House and the Senate in 2006.

And for some, that “here we go again” feeling came rushing back recently when Obama urged his soon-to-be-former Democratic Senate colleagues not to hold “grudges” against Lieberman, who infuriated liberals with his support for Iraq then picked at the scab by supporting John McCain – and opposing Obama – during the presidential race.

But in a sign that the left is willing to cut the president-elect some slack, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) – rather than Obama – has taken the lion’s share of the grief for this week’s decision to let Lieberman hang onto his chairmanship at the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee.

In a blog post, Daily Kos founder Markos Moulitsas said the Lieberman deal was proof that Senate Democrats are “tone deaf” to the views of “the American electorate that voted in overwhelming numbers for change from the discredited Bush/McCain/Lieberman policies.” Said Moulitsas: “I’m done with Reid as Senate leader.”

Moulitsas’ criticism of Obama’s role in the Lieberman proceedings was more muted. But there are signs that the benefit of the doubt won’t last forever. The list of potential flashpoints between Obama and the left wing of his party is growing, an inevitable development given the sky-high expectations and his need to recruit experienced lieutenants to deal with immense domestic and military problems.

Little that Obama has done has prompted as much anxiety as his flirtation with Gates, a proponent of continued ground operations in Iraq and longtime opponent of a date-certain withdrawal.

“Kind of makes you think that Democrats believe Republicans are better at managing both national security,” scoffed Chris Bowers at OpenLeft.com, a progressive blog.

Obama has also drawn considerable flak for enlisting so many battle-scarred Clinton White House veterans – led by chief of staff Rahm Emanuel, who helped engineer the passage of the now-unpopular North American Free Trade Agreement for President Bill Clinton in the 1990s.

Obama has also taken some heat for considering former Harvard President Larry Summers for Treasury secretary, while drawing milder rebukes for passing over outgoing DNC hairman Howard Dean for secretary of Health and Human Services. The job, according to reports, is going to Former Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle.

And while opinion about Hillary Clinton’s fitness to serve as secretary of state is divided, many lefty bloggers haven’t forgotten Clinton’s authorizing President Bush to use military force in Iraq in October 2002- or what they believe was her mishandling of health care reform 15 years ago.

“Sen. Clinton has been at the helm in two big undertakings – had two big executive leadership tasks,” wrote Josh Marshall, the influential founder of Talking Points Memo. “One was health care in 1994, and the other was her presidential bid in 2007-08. Each was something of a train wreck from an executive-level management perspective.”

Watching Obama stack his transition team and senior staff with Clinton-era operatives – and maybe an actual Clinton – has agitated many liberal lions who otherwise admire Obama.

“It tells me I’m going to have to be Frederick Douglas to his Abraham Lincoln,” said House Judiciary Committee Chairman John Conyers Jr. (D-Mich.), referring to Obama’s fascination with all things Lincoln.

In some corners of the left, there’s been downright dejection, but people there mostly were skeptical of him all along. Ali Abuminah, a Palestinian-rights activist in Chicago, says he’s seen Obama move to the right on Israel, is troubled by the possible selection of Hillary Clinton as secretary of state and finds himself especially bothered by Emanuel’s pro-Israel views.

“The emerging direction of Obama’s Middle East policy is not going to do anything to unblock the peace process,” he said, calling Emanuel “to the right of George Bush in many respects.”

For the moment, though, such critics appear to be in the minority.

“At this point, a lot of people have a lot of confidence in him,” said Sen. Bernie Sanders, an independent from Vermont who is a self-identified socialist.

“His behavior is concurrent with how he ran his campaign,” said Rep. Mike Honda, one of the more progressive members of California Democratic delegation. “Fingers crossed; this might work.”

When Obama has faced opposition from his left flank, he’s responded quickly.

In August, the Nation, the country’s oldest progressive magazine, published an editorial warning of “troubling signs” that Obama was reverting to a “more cautious, centrist stance,” citing his vote in favor of allowing telecom companies immunity in warrantless wiretap lawsuits.

Obama responded with an open letter to readers. I won’t always agree with you, he told the lefty magazine, but I will always listen.

John Aravosis, founder of the left-of-center AMERICAblog, says most liberals implicitly trust Obama more than any Democrat in recent memory – and they understand that not every compromise he makes is a sellout.

“He hasn’t really screwed up yet on these appointments,” Aravosis added. “And look at the Lieberman situation. It’s not like people aren’t pissed off at Lieberman or Reid. But they just don’t hold it against Obama because they know he needs to work with the Senate.”

Ayman Zawahiri: the negroes are in the house . . .

Al Qaeda’s No. 2 leader

uses racial epithet against Barack Obama

 

In a video, Ayman Zawahiri says the president-elect is ‘the direct opposite of honorable black Americans’ and says Obama, Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice are ‘house Negroes.’

 

Associated Press

November 20, 2008

Reporting from Cairo — Al Qaeda’s No. 2 leader used a racial epithet to insult Barack Obama in a message posted Wednesday, describing the president-elect in demeaning terms that imply he does the bidding of whites. The message seems aimed at convincing Muslims and Arabs that Obama does not represent a change in U.S. policies. Ayman Zawahiri said in the message, which appeared on militant websites, that Obama was “the direct opposite of honorable black Americans” like Malcolm X, the 1960s black Muslim leader. In Al Qaeda’s first response to Obama’s historic victory, Zawahiri also called the president-elect — along with Secretaries of State Colin L. Powell and Condoleezza Rice — “house Negroes.” Speaking in Arabic, Zawahiri uses the term “abeed al-beit,” which literally translates as “house slaves.” But Al Qaeda supplied English subtitles of his speech that included the translation as “house Negroes.” In Washington, State Department spokesman Sean McCormack said the message was just “more despicable comments from a terrorist.” The 11-minute, 23-second video features the audio message by Zawahiri, who appears only in a still image, along with other images, including one of Obama wearing a skullcap as he meets with Jewish leaders. In his speech, Zawahiri refers to a Nov. 5 U.S. air strike in Afghanistan, meaning the video was made after that date.

FROM THE GREAT DECIDER TO THE GREAT DIVIDER

Obama spurs race crimes around country

Some writers, like in the article below, might try to force feed people the idea that all the hatred in present day America is because a negro president has been elected. Yet, contrary to popular belief, many people still believe it is “how he played the game” and not that he won the race. America’s recent outbreak of hatred doesn’t stem from a black person being elected, it stems from the way he went about getting elected. Granted, for some, the fact that he is black was enough to vote against him. However, in my humble opinion, for others it was Obama’s lack of transparency that left them feeling as though they had been duped; and nobody likes to be duped. As with the political group, P.U.M.A. – Political Unity My Ass, many citizens in the United States have found their selves in a frenzied state in regards to the rise of Barack Obama. Since Obama’s nomination as the democratic presidential nominee the amount of hatred in America has been steadily on the rise. The nation hasn’t seen this kind of racial divide since the civil rights movement in the 1960’s. Though some may disagree, during the presidential campaign there was an unmistakable tension in the air that undoubtedly smelled of reverse racism. An innumerable amount of newspaper articles fueled the fire, especially those written by the likes of Andrew Greeley and Eric Zorn of the Chicago Sun Times. It was as though they purposely wanted to inspire race related hatred to infuriate the public. The old divide and conquer tactic, is blatantly Maoist; and a page right out of one of Obama’s favorite books, the “Communist Manifesto of Neocolonialism.” As a result, the nation is in a state of unrest. Exactly how Obama plans on reuniting the people of the United States is a question on many minds of our nation’s populace. There is absolutely no question that there was racial tension in America before the presidential contest, but not near the amount we are currently experiencing. In fact, some might come to the conclusion that Obama used the racial tension to his advantage; the gist of it is that Obama has set the racial harmony in our country back 50 years. The 700 billion dollar question is will he just write it off as if it is only the status quo? Let’s just hope Obama can find a way to “calm the waters and heal the earth,” as he promised. IMHO, as far as presidents go, we have gone from the “great decider” to the “great divider.”

By JESSE WASHINGTON, AP National Writer Jesse Washington, Ap National Writer – Sun Nov 16,

Cross burnings. Schoolchildren chanting “Assassinate Obama.” Black figures hung from nooses. Racial epithets scrawled on homes and cars.

Incidents around the country referring to President-elect Barack Obama are dampening the postelection glow of racial progress and harmony, highlighting the stubborn racism that remains in America.

From California to Maine, police have documented a range of alleged crimes, from vandalism and vague threats to at least one physical attack. Insults and taunts have been delivered by adults, college students and second-graders.

There have been “hundreds” of incidents since the election, many more than usual, said Mark Potok, director of the Intelligence Project at the Southern Poverty Law Center, which monitors hate crimes.

One was in Snellville, Ga., where Denene Millner said a boy on the school bus told her 9-year-old daughter the day after the election: “I hope Obama gets assassinated.” That night, someone trashed her sister-in-law’s front lawn, mangled the Obama lawn signs, and left two pizza boxes filled with human feces outside the front door, Millner said.

She described her emotions as a combination of anger and fear.

“I can’t say that every white person in Snellville is evil and anti-Obama and willing to desecrate my property because one or two idiots did it,” said Millner, who is black. “But it definitely makes you look a little different at the people who you live with, and makes you wonder what they’re capable of and what they’re really thinking.”

Potok, who is white, said he believes there is “a large subset of white people in this country who feel that they are losing everything they know, that the country their forefathers built has somehow been stolen from them.”

Grant Griffin, a 46-year-old white Georgia native, expressed similar sentiments: “I believe our nation is ruined and has been for several decades and the election of Obama is merely the culmination of the change.

“If you had real change it would involve all the members of (Obama’s) church being deported,” he said.

Change in whatever form does not come easy, and a black president is “the most profound change in the field of race this country has experienced since the Civil War,” said William Ferris, senior associate director of the Center for the Study of the American South at the University of North Carolina. “It’s shaking the foundations on which the country has existed for centuries.”

“Someone once said racism is like cancer,” Ferris said. “It’s never totally wiped out, it’s in remission.”

If so, America’s remission lasted until the morning of Nov. 5.

The day after the vote hailed as a sign of a nation changed, black high school student Barbara Tyler of Marietta, Ga., said she heard hateful Obama comments from white students, and that teachers cut off discussion about Obama’s victory.

Tyler spoke at a press conference by the Georgia chapter of the NAACP calling for a town hall meeting to address complaints from across the state about hostility and resentment. Another student, from a Covington middle school, said he was suspended for wearing an Obama shirt to school Nov. 5 after the principal told students not to wear political paraphernalia.

The student’s mother, Eshe Riviears, said the principal told her: “Whether you like it or not, we’re in the South, and there are a lot of people who are not happy with this decision.”

Other incidents include:

_Four North Carolina State University students admitted writing anti-Obama comments in a tunnel designated for free speech expression, including one that said: “Let’s shoot that (N-word) in the head.” Obama has received more threats than any other president-elect, authorities say.

_At Standish, Maine, a sign inside the Oak Hill General Store read: “Osama Obama Shotgun Pool.” Customers could sign up to bet $1 on a date when Obama would be killed. “Stabbing, shooting, roadside bombs, they all count,” the sign said. At the bottom of the marker board was written “Let’s hope someone wins.”

_Racist graffiti was found in places including New York’s Long Island, where two dozen cars were spray-painted; Kilgore, Texas, where the local high school and skate park were defaced; and the Los Angeles area, where swastikas, racial slurs and “Go Back To Africa” were spray painted on sidewalks, houses and cars.

_Second- and third-grade students on a school bus in Rexburg, Idaho, chanted “assassinate Obama,” a district official said.

_University of Alabama professor Marsha L. Houston said a poster of the Obama family was ripped off her office door. A replacement poster was defaced with a death threat and a racial slur. “It seems the election brought the racist rats out of the woodwork,” Houston said.

_Black figures were hanged by nooses from trees on Mount Desert Island, Maine, the Bangor Daily News reported. The president of Baylor University in Waco, Texas said a rope found hanging from a campus tree was apparently an abandoned swing and not a noose.

_Crosses were burned in yards of Obama supporters in Hardwick, N.J., and Apolacan Township, Pa.

_A black teenager in New York City said he was attacked with a bat on election night by four white men who shouted ‘Obama.’

_In the Pittsburgh suburb of Forest Hills, a black man said he found a note with a racial slur on his car windshield, saying “now that you voted for Obama, just watch out for your house.”

Emotions are often raw after a hard-fought political campaign, but now those on the losing side have an easy target for their anger.

“The principle is very simple,” said BJ Gallagher, a sociologist and co-author of the diversity book “A Peacock in the Land of Penguins.” “If I can’t hurt the person I’m angry at, then I’ll vent my anger on a substitute, i.e., someone of the same race.”

“We saw the same thing happen after the 9-11 attacks, as a wave of anti-Muslim violence swept the country. We saw it happen after the Rodney King verdict, when Los Angeles blacks erupted in rage at the injustice perpetrated by ‘the white man.'”

“It’s as stupid and ineffectual as kicking your dog when you’ve had a bad day at the office,” Gallagher said. “But it happens a lot.”

THE EMPTY SUIT HAS BEEN FILLED WITH LAW SUITS

More than a half-dozen legal challenges have been filed in federal and state courts demanding President-elect Barack Obama’s decertification from ballots or seeking to halt elector meetings, claiming he has failed to prove his U.S. citizenship status. An Obama campaign spokeswoman told WND the complaints are unfounded. “All I can tell you is that it is just pure garbage,” she said. “There have been several lawsuits, but they have been dismissed.” WND is tracking the progress of many cases across the U.S., including the following:

 

Ohio – David M. Neal of Turtlecreek Township, Ohio, filed suit in Warren Common Pleas Court in October to force Ohio Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner to request documents from the Federal Elections Commission, the Democratic National Committee, the Ohio Democratic Party and Obama to show the presidential candidate was born in Hawaii, the Cincinnati Enquirer reported. Warren County Magistrate Andrew Hasselbach denied Neal’s request, saying, “The onus is upon one who challenges such public officer to demonstrate an abuse of discretion by admissible evidence – not hearsay, conclusory allegations or pure speculation.”

 

Connecticut – Connecticut resident Cort Wrotnowski challenged the authenticity of Obama’s birth certificate on Oct. 31, and asked the court to order Secretary of State Susan Bysiewicz to verify Obama’s citizenship before allowing the candidate to appear on the state ballot. State Supreme Court Chief Justice Chase T. Rogers threw out the case for lack of jurisdiction within a half hour of reviewing it. “I have not seen the ruling yet,” Wrotnowski told WND. “So, in reality, the case was not heard on its merits. … Currently, we are assembling information for another and better try.”

 

Washington – As WND reported earlier, Steven Marquis of Fall City, Wash., filed suit Oct. 9 in Washington State Superior Court, calling for Secretary of State Sam Reed to determine whether Obama is a citizen before Election Day. Marquis released a statement saying the state has the authority to “prevent the wholesale disenfranchisement of voters” who might have otherwise had the opportunity to choose a qualified candidate should records show Obama is not a natural-born U.S. citizen. Marquis said Obama’s Hawaii birth certificate isn’t evidence that the president-elect is a natural-born citizen because it doesn’t reveal the hospital where Obama was born, a doctor’s name or the baby’s footprint, the Associated Press reported. Superior Court Judge John Erlick dismissed the lawsuit, claiming the secretary of state does not have authority to inquire about Obama’s birth certificate. He also said Marquis failed to name Obama as a party to the lawsuit.

 

New Jersey – In Leo C. Donofrio v. Nina Mitchell Wells, Secretary of State of the State of New Jersey, retired attorney and New Jersey resident Leo. C. Donofrio asked the U.S. Supreme Court for an emergency stay on Nov. 3 prohibiting three candidates from appearing on New Jersey’s ballots: Republican candidate John McCain, Democratic candidate Barack Obama and Socialist Worker’s Party candidate Roger Calero. Donofrio claimed the candidates are not “natural born citizens” as enumerated in Article 2, Section 1, of the Constitution of the United States, which states, “No person except a natural born citizen of the United States, at the time of adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the office of President.” He wrote, Obama is not eligible for the presidency “even if it were proved he was born in Hawaii, since … Senator Obama’s father was born in Kenya and therefore, having been born with split and competing loyalties, candidate Obama is not a ‘natural born citizen’ …” “Republican candidate John McCain was born in Panama,” the request states. “Socialist Workers Party candidate Roger Calero was born in Nicaragua. And the birthplace of Democratic candidate Barack Obama has not been verified by Respondent.” Donofrio said Panama has never been considered U.S. soil, and that McCain is merely a citizen at birth by statute, and not a “natural born citizen.” With three ineligible presidential candidates on ballots, Donofrio warned, New Jersey voters will “witness firsthand the fraud their electoral process has become.” Justice David Souter denied Donofrio’s application on Nov. 6. However, his case is still pending as an emergency stay application. Donofrio is resubmitting his request for an emergency stay of the national election results and Electoral College meeting to Justice Clarence Thomas.

 

Pennsylvania – As WND reported earlier, prominent Pennsylvania Democrat and attorney Philip J. Berg filed suit in U.S. District Court three months ago claiming Obama is not a natural-born U.S. citizen. Berg claimed that by failing to respond Obama has legally “admitted” to the lawsuit’s accusations, including the charge that the Democratic candidate was born in Mombosa, Kenya. U.S. District Judge R. Barclay Surrick dismissed Berg’s argument on Oct, 24, ruling that he lacked standing to bring the case. He said Berg’s allegations were “too vague and too attenuated.” “This is a question of who has standing to uphold our Constitution,” Berg told Jeff Schreiber of America’s Right blog. “If I don’t have standing, if you don’t have standing, if your neighbor doesn’t have standing to question the eligibility of an individual to be president of the United States – the commander in chief, the most powerful person in the world – then who does?” Berg filed a writ of certiorari in “I look forward to receiving Defendant Obama’s response to the Writ and am hopeful the U.S. Supreme Court will review Berg v. Obama,” Berg wrote in a Nov. 7 statement. “I believe Mr. Obama is not a consitutionally-qualified natural-born citizen and is ineligible to assume the office of the President of the United States.”

 

Georgia – Rev. Tom Terry of Atlanta, Ga., appealed to the Georgia Supreme Court the day before the election to determine authenticity of Obama’s original birth certificate and his qualifications to be president. “I bear no personal ill will against Barack Obama,” Terry, an independent, said in a statement. “In fact, his election solely on the basis as the first African-American president-elect is a very positive thing for our nation. However, as an American, I have very grave concerns about Mr. Obama’s possible divided loyalties since he has strenuously and vigorously fought every request and every legal effort to force him to release his original birth certificate for public review and scrutiny. I think that is significant.” On Oct 24, Georgia Superior Court Judge Jerry W. Baxter denied Terry’s request for an injunction against Secretary of State Karen Handel. “I don’t think you have standing to bring this suit,” he said. “I think that the attorney general has argued the law. I think he is correct. I think you are not a lawyer.” Terry is appealing his suit even though Obama didn’t win Georgia because he said he wants to set an example for other states. He is asking the court to direct Georgia Secretary of State Karen Handel to decertify all votes for Obama. “Hopefully, this action will be noticed by other states and they will also take a serious look at the meaning of Georgia’s Supreme Court’s actions,” he said. “It is apropos that the Latin motto in the Georgia Supreme Court is interpreted: ‘Let justice be done, though the heavens fall.’ I think if the Court rules in my favor, that motto will come alive with meaning and impact.”

 

Hawaii – On Oct. 17, Andy Martin filed a writ of mandamus in Hawaii’s Supreme Court to compel Gov. Linda Lingle to release a certified copy of Obama’s vital statistics record. His request to expedite the circuit court was denied on Oct. 22. Martin now has a pending case seeking access to Obama’s original 1961 typewritten birth certificate. The circuit court hearing is set to begin Nov. 18.

 

The saga continues …

 

Several unconfirmed reports also indicate that citizens of Utah, Wyoming, Florida, New York, North Carolina, Texas, California and Virginia have also filed lawsuits or requested court orders to verify Obama’s citizenship status. As reported earlier, WND senior investigative reporter Jerome Corsi traveled both to Kenya and Hawaii to investigate issues surrounding Obama’s birth.

But his discoveries only raised more questions.

 

The governor’s office in Hawaii said he had a valid certificate but rejected requests for access and left ambiguous its origin – leaving some to wonder if the certificate on file with the Department of Health indicates a Hawaiian birth or whether it was generated after the Obama family registered a Kenyan birth in Hawaii.

 

The Obama campaign posted a certification of live birth, a document stating the baby was born on Aug. 4, 1961. However, according to the Department of Hawaiian Home Lands, there is a difference between the two documents. A certification of live birth is not an authentication of Hawaiian birth, and critics say the procedure could have allowed Obama’s mother to have the baby elsewhere, return to the U.S. and obtain the document in Hawaii.

 

The Department of Hawaiian Home Lands makes a distinction between the two:

 

In order to process your application, DHHL utilizes information that is found only on the original Certificate of Live Birth, which is either black or green. This is a more complete record of your birth than the Certification of Live Birth (a computer-generated printout). Submitting the original Certificate of Live Birth will save you time and money since the computer-generated Certification requires additional verification by DHHL.

 

However, Andy Martin has specifically requested verification of the original 1961 type-written certificate of live birth – or, as the Department of Hawaiian Home Lands describes it, the “more complete

record” of Obama’s birth.

 

Further adding to complications, Obama’s half-sister, Maya Soetoro, has named two different Hawaii hospitals where Obama could have been born. In a November 2004 interview with the Rainbow Newsletter, Maya told reporters her half-brother Sen. Barack Obama was born on Aug. 4, 1961, at Queens Medical Center in Honolulu; then in February 2008, Maya told reporters for the Honolulu Star-Bulletin that Obama was at the Kapiolani Medical Center for Women and Children. But a video posted on YouTube features Obama’s Kenyan grandmother Sarah claiming to have witnessed Obama’s birth in Kenya.

 

Seeking to settle the issue, Hawaii Department of Health Director Director Chiyome Fukino released an Oct. 31 statement saying, “State law (Hawai’i Revised Statutes §338-18) prohibits the release of a certified birth certificate to persons who do not have a tangible interest in the vital record. Therefore, I as Director of Health for the State of Hawai’i, 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 Hawai’i State Department of Health has Sen. Obama’s original birth certificate on record in accordance with state policies and procedures.” The statement does not clarify whether “the record” is a certification of live birth or a Hawaiian certificate of live birth.

 

Before the election, WND retained a top private investigator in Hawaii with extensive FBI training and tasked him with visiting both the Queens Medical Center and the Kaliolani Medical Center to investigate claims that Obama birth certificates existed at either hospital. However, the private investigator reported that sheriff’s deputies were stationed at both hospitals to fend off press inquiries about Obama’s birth certificate. When WND asked the Obama campaign spokeswoman why Obama simply hasn’t released the original 1961 certificate of live birth to make the lawsuits go away, she replied, “I have no idea. I think they released what they chose to release, and Hawaii has confirmed that he was born in Hawaii, so I don’t know what else you want.”
