America's True Form of Government

Here is a link to a very good educational video at YouTube.com about America's True Form of Government. At least we had it originally. It is now further under threat by the trampling of Article II of our Constitution.

Hawaiian statute Section 338-5 provides as follows:

Ҥ338-5 Compulsory registration of births. Within the time prescribed by the department of health, a certificate of every birth shall be substantially completed and filed with the local agent of the department in the district in which the birth occurred, by the administrator or designated representative of the birthing facility, or physician, or midwife, or other legally authorized person in attendance at the birth; or if not so attended, by one of the parents.

The birth facility shall make available to the department appropriate medical records for the purpose of monitoring compliance with the provisions of this chapter. [L 1949, c 327, §9; RL 1955, §57-8; am L Sp 1959 2d, c 1, §19; HRS §338-5; am L 1988, c 149, §1]"

We can see from this law that a birth certificate needs to be filed by the administrator or designated representative of the birthing facility, or physician, or midwife, or other legally authorized person in attendance at the birth or if not so attended by one of the parents.

When Obama was questioned as to where he was born, he presumably authorized the posting not of his original long-form Certificate of Live Birth (BC) but rather a Certification of Live Birth (COLB) on the web sites dailykos.com, fightthesmears.com, and factcheck.org. Forensic experts (although having examined only the digital image on the computer and not having actually examined the original document) have questioned the authenticity of the actual COLB image that appeared on these web sites. Additionally, by relying only on a questionable computer image of the COLB, government officials do not have the benefit of examining the actual paper document and the underlying factual and corroborating information which is critical in confirming whether or not an individual (could be one parent alone) has accurately and truthfully reported a birth event to Hawaiian officials. Moreover, Obama's step grandmother (and reportedly other family members) in Kenya and at least one top Kenyan government official made statements that he was born in Kenya.

On the Obama eligibility dispute, we are talking about the Office of President of the United States and Commander in Chief of our military forces, probably the most powerful position in the world. As I have previously written, the sole purpose of government is to protect an individual’s safety and pursuit of happiness. Needless to say, the President has a great amount of power which can make life and death decisions over the lives of Americans. Despite the pleas and petitions of countless concerned Americans, our Government, which normally thoroughly examines the backgrounds of incoming aliens and applicants for permanent residency and U.S. naturalization, persons who want a national security clearance, and applicants for police and government positions, not to mention the other countless ordinary citizens who may apply for some type of government benefit (e.g. a social security card and driver's license), investigated and confirmed McCain's "natural born Citizen" status but has refused to investigate and confirm that of Obama's. Indeed, they have refused to investigate and confirm whether Obama was born in Hawaii and whether under the Constitution he is an Article II "natural born Citizen" given that his father was neither a U.S. legal resident nor citizen when Obama was born. In examining many of the responses from members of Congress to Americans who wrote to them for such action, on the issue of place of birth, not one of them said that the issue was investigated by a competent government agency such as the FBI, CIA, Secret Service, ICE, or other police or security agency. Rather, they merely rely on court dismissals (none of which have yet to reach the merits of the dispute), the computer digital image of the COLB (the authenticity of which has been questioned and which in light of existing contradictory evidence is itself insufficient to remove the existing doubts regarding Obama's place of birth), statements allegedly made by Hawaiian officials (which officials to this day have yet to confirm that Obama was indeed born in Hawaii), and the fact that the voting public has allegedly already vetted Obama (which it could not have given that Obama has refused to release to the media and public his original birth certificate (BC) and other important travel, school, and government service documents). Many of these same Congressman have also avoided addressing the question of what is an Article II "natural born citizen."

Florida's Congressman, Bill Posey's H.R. 1503, which basically provides that we should have a mechanism to confirm that a person running for President is an Article II "natural born Citizen" which is already a Constitutional requirement, has not yet found any Congressional co-sponsors. We Americans along with future generations who will also be impacted upon deserve much better protection from our current Government. To put it mildly, our Government's conduct is shocking! Let us hope that the American judiciary, based on currently pending or future law suits, will craft a remedy that will provide the American people with that vital protection.

Thanks for the video link. Based on the historical information concerning the Roman civilization, aren't we already pretty far down the road, maybe beyond the point of no return and we are just fooling ourselves into thinking we can save the Republic? Are we just slowing the demise?

It is interesting to think about the 'names' of our two major political parties being Republican and Democrat, and the concept of being 'bipartisan'. Given the perspective of the video, to be bipartisan would be taking steps toward the demise of the republic, giving up on the republic. It seems illogical at best.

Now as for your comment above, I am absolutely dumfounded that our elected legislators could look at the online image of a COLB with Barack Obama's name on it and accept it as PROOF of anything except that someone knows how to upload a digital image! There is no one anywhere who would accept such an image in lieu of an actual physical document. They wouldn't accept a fax. They wouldn't accept a photocopy. I couldn't take my computer down to the Motor Vehicle Agency in Morristown, NJ and show them scanned images of my daughter's documents and expect to walk away with a drivers license! They would think I was crazy. Maybe we should all go down there and say, "But I thought since NJ voted Barack Obama into the Whitehouse that meant scanned computer images are sufficient to prove one's identity now!"

I hadn't thought of this until now, but Posey's bill/resolution affords us yet another opportunity to contact our legislators and attempt to explain the issue and ask for support.

We have enough information, though, by now, to know exactly how they are going to react, what they are going to consider, etc., and the key is to somehow throw them off-guard with something they are not expecting that will get them to actually take a look.

Puzo1,

Please clarify your statement that the government has investigated John McCain's citizenship status and has confirmed that he is a natural born citizen.

If you are referring to Senate Resolution 511, I understand that it is only an opinion and really can’t be considered legally binding, and therefore his natural born citizenship status has not been confirmed.

Also there is an error of fact in the resolution. It states that McCain was born on an American military base in the Panama Canal Zone, when in reality he was born in a Colon Hospital. I grant that this is a technicality, but nevertheless he was born on foreign soil.

According to Vattel, in order to be a native, which he equates to a natural born citizen, one must be born of the soil and the blood of two citizen parents. By this definition, McCain is not a natural born citizen.

ubi re vera said...

Whether or not Sen Res 511 is valid doesn't matter. The point is that the Senate took some action on the issue with McCain and not with Obama. (Of course I do agree with you that the Res is in error, no only for the actual words, but the scholarship underlying it... see the Congressional Record).

ubi re vera,

Two points:

1. I think it is important to understand that SR 511 is not valid, because Congress has no legal authority to interpret the constitution.

2. Based on #1, Mr. Apuzzo's statement that the "government...investigated and confirmed McCain's 'natural born Citizen' status" led me to believe that there was some other government action regarding McCain's citizenship status that I was not aware of.

Mario,

Thanks for your efforts on or behalf, and thanks for the link to the Republic video - one of the best.

I agree with some commenter thoughts about McCain's non-NBC status. I have seen a copy of the Coloma birth certificate for McCain, and it looks more genuine than does Obama's scam.

Keep up the good work, and may success attend your efforts.
