The high school friends of Barack Obama 'know that he was not born in Hawaii,' it has been claimed.
On a trip across the USA we came across someone with Hawaiian ancestry and information about Obama. This person claimed: ' Obama's high school friends know very well that he was not born there, but when he ran for the presidency, they all went quiet about it.' Also: 'The hospital there could never release his birth certificate, because they do not have have it.'
Why is this so important? Because Article II Section I Clause 5 of the Constitution sets the main qualifications for the presidency. A president must:
- Be a natural born citizen of the United States (be born on American soil)*
- Be at least 35 years old
- Have been a permanent resident of the USA for at least 14 years
Anyone who questions Obama's birthplace is now smeared in the media as a 'birther'. Obama has never produced his birth certificate. His first act as president was to seal all his documents.
We are not allowed to see: his birth certificate, his education records, his medical history. We are not allowed to see if he ever, for example, applied for funding as a foreign student.
He is a man of mystery, a real life Manchurian candidate. And he is the most powerful man in the world, with America at his mercy.
So we ask: Mr Obama - why can we not see your birth certificate? Why?
And we ask the Congress - why have you not impeached the man who will not satisfy the electorate by proving his eligibility to hold the office of president? Why?
Alan adds: One of a journalist's jobs is to tell the truth, another is to protect his sources. In this case we have withheld some compelling evidence that would help identify our source and cause potential problems, for this is a most serious matter. We never print anything which we don't have good reason to believe is true. This story bears further investigation in Hawaii, which is what today's journalists should be doing instead of broadcasting silly showbusiness gossip.
* Foreign-born Americans who were citizens at the time the Constitution was adopted were also eligible to become president, provided they met the age and residency requirements. This was because the country was so young that some of the leaders had come from England or Scotland. However, this allowance has since become obsolete. To be eligible as a candidate for the presidency, the candidate MUST have been born on American soil. There are NO EXCEPTIONS to this rule.
