Obama Citizenship Question:
Is Barack Obama a "natural born"
citizen as required by Article II
of the U.S. Constitution?
See the Evidence,
Judge for Yourself:
Chicago Tribune "OPEN LETTER"
TO MR. OBAMA:
This is the full-page ad WTP
in the Chicago Tribune Dec. 1 and 3, 2008:
National Press Club press conference December, 2008
Chairman Bob Schulz and attorneys with cases pending
at the U.S. Supreme Court challenging Barack's Obama
citizenship status as a "natural born citizen" as is
required by Article II of the Constitution.
HAWAII OFFICIALS REFUSE TO CONFIRM OBAMA HAWAII BIRTH
Despite the overbroad and erroneous claims of many
news sources, Hawaii
officials have NOT confirmed that Obama was born in
official Hawaii Dept. of Health press release.
Again, at NO time
do Hawaii state officials confirm that Obama was actually
born in Hawaii.
Compounding the question surrounding Obama's
citizenship status is a subsequent
statement of Health Department spokeswoman Janice
Chicago Tribune, 10-31-08). Citing
Hawaii state privacy laws, and guidance from the
state attorney general, she said she, “was not
permitted to confirm the authenticity of the
certificate released by the Obama campaign.”

U.S. Supreme Court)
Berg's initial complaint
(right-click to download)
Among Berg's arguments is that if Obama was born in
Kenya, U.S. Immigration law in effect in 1961 barred
Obama from U.S. citizenship at birth because his
father was a Kenyan citizen and his mother, although
a U.S. citizen, was not a resident of the U.S. for
at least FIVE years following her 14th birthday.
Obama's mother was only 18 at the time of
Obama's birth, and thereby barred - by U.S.
Immigration law -
from passing U.S. citizenship to her child Obama --
even though she was a U.S. citizen.
See page 6 of the legal brief.
Read the Donofrio Supreme Court appeal:
Mr. Donofrio’s arguments to the U.S. Supreme Court.
(right-click to download).
Donofrio's primary legal argument is that Obama could never
be a constitutional "natural born" citizen simply because his father was a
legal citizen of another nation, i.e. a foreign national of Kenya,
regardless of place
of birth. See page 16 of the brief.
BIRTH CERTIFICATE: "Certificate" or
of Live Birth?
Mr. Obama has only proffered a discredited 2007 computer-generated,
"Certification of Live Birth"
that is suspected of being a forgery.
This “short-form” document is NOT the
same as an original
vault copy "long form" birth certificate (i.e., a “Certificate of
Live Birth”) as it does not bear a sworn
certification of an attendant physician or contain
other vital birth information such as hospital
location, mother’s age, etc. which are necessary to
verify the full citizenship status of a person,
i.e., a "natural born" OR "naturalized"
By Article II of the U.S. Constitution, "Naturalized" U.S. citizens, such as California's Gov. Arnold
Schwarzenegger are NOT eligible to hold the Office

INDONESIAN SCHOOL RECORDS
school document indicates Obama was a citizen of Indonesia.
(original copy and translation shown)
Until 2006, Indonesia did not allow dual
citizenship, meaning that because Obama, as a minor,
was legally acknowledged as an Indonesian citizen by
his parents, he was temporarily stripped of his U.S.
citizenship at that time. Under U.S.
Immigration law, Obama could have regained his
citizenship as an adult, but only as a "naturalized"
citizen, ineligible to hold the Office of President.

affidavit includes partial
transcript of an audio recording of Obama's grandmother
stating she attended Obama's birth in KENYA.)
False claims and undisclosed
conflict of interest
FactCheck.org is an arm of the powerful
Annenberg Foundation which also runs the
Chicago Annenberg Challenge, the entity which
employed Barack Obama as its chairman of the board. FactCheck.org
conducted an allegedly "independent" analysis of
Obama's 2007 computer-generated birth document (see
image link above, on right).
According to the National Review, the Annenberg
Challenge was founded by former “Weather
Underground” terrorist Bill Ayers, who apparently
played a pivotal role in politically positioning Obama to run for public office. See this
National Review article detailing Obama’s
relationship to Annenberg and Ayers and its
unsuccessful efforts to review the archives of the
FactCheck is guilty of making the patently false
claim that the Hawaii
of Health confirmed Oct. 31 that Obama was born in
have made NO such claim.
See specific rebuttal at top of this page.
On the same web page FactCheck also falsely states
staffers have now seen, touched, examined and
photographed the original birth certificate.” In
truth, the document examined by FactCheck is a 2007
computer-generated document and is obviously
not the “original” Obama 1961 birth
certificate sought by the Foundation.
These are simply and unequivocally, false
BIRTH DOCUMENT: Forgery
A highly experienced Document Forensics expert,
writing under the pseudonym "Polarik" for the safety
of his family, recently released his final findings
and evidence concluding the birth document proffered
by Obama is a forgery. The detailed analysis
examines not only the original graphic released on
Obama's website, but the digital photographs later
released by Annenberg's FactCheck.org on its website
as part of its allegedly independent analysis (see
above). To WTP's knowledge, neither FactCheck.org
nor Obama have allowed any other party to conduct a
direct examination of the document.
Again, it is important to note that Obama's document
is NOT an original, hand-signed "Certificate of Live
Birth" but only a computer-generated printout
which lacks vital birth information necessary to
conclusively establish Obama's citizenship. Click

short YouTube video summarizing his findings:
