Mystery solved*: Barack Obama was American-born

(UPDATE: Alan Keyes stoked the Obama birth certificate controversy anew in February 2009. See Ticket coverage here.)

*Except, of course, for the conspiracy theorists out there.

One of the subtexts to the presidential camFactCheck.org reviews birth certificate and says Barack Obama is as American as John McCainpaign so far has been speculation by haters of both Barack Obama and John McCain that neither is eligible to be president because neither was born in the U.S.

In the case of McCain, he was born to U.S. citizens in the U.S.-controlled Panama Canal Zone while his military father was stationed there. McCain's Senate colleagues pooh-poohed the idea that disqualified him, and lawyers are wrestling over it, but we doubt that a challenge on those grounds will get far.

In Obama's case, there has been rampant online speculation that his birth certificate is forged or altered somehow. Well, the folks at FactCheck.org say they have seen the certificate, touched and vouched it -- Obama is as American as baseball, apple pie and, these days, burritos, pasta and kung pao chicken.

So that should settle it ... unless ... wait ... the people at FactCheck.org use computers, with keypads, that have the letters r-e-z-k-o on them, which just happened to spell the name of one of Obama's disgraced former backers ... and they were in Chicago to see the birth certificate at ... Obama headquarters ... CONNECT THE DOTS, PEOPLE!

Going back to authenticity of "President elect" Obama birth certificate, this is an obvious forgery. For the same reason that George Bush's documents provided by CBS a few years ago were invalidated due to the fact that they were computer-generated as is this document. I'm not a computer or printer expert, but the most obvious check to me is that capital I in HUSSEIN, looks adjusted, whereas a typewriter, available when he was born, would not show any type of adjustment and would look more like HUSSE IN - Tell me what you all think!!

It really doesn't matter anymore, Democrat elected Officials have prooven they are above the law. Democrats will lie, cheat, kill or whatever it takes to get the power. Our Congress and Senate is clearly not working and the Democrats running the show clearly do not feel it is important what is good for the people only what is good for the Government and in their case their pockets. The Democrats have made it clear that if you do good and are succesful you should be penalized.

ITS DONE! ITS OVER, PLEASE PEOPLE FOCUS ON THINGS THAT MATTER YOUR NEIGHBORS AND FRIENDS THAT ARE HAVING POOR TIMES ..PLEASE FOR THE SAKE OF US ALL LETS JUST REMEMBER WHAT MATTERS. OH YEAH ALL YOU BONE HEADS THAT PUT BUSH IN AGAIN WHAT A BAD MISTAKE YOU MADE.....REPUBLICANS AREN'T BAD DEMOCRATS AREN'T BAD IT IS THE PEOPLE INSIDE THE PERSON NOT ALL PEOPLE ARE THE SAME DID ANYONE GET THAT YET ...YOU WHO JUDGE SHALL BE JUDGED

Oh so the Constitution of the United States does not matter? What the F is wrong with you people? If this issue is over, then why has he not displayed it? Why is the Supreme court waiting for a Dec 1st Deadline? I am sorry but this is not over until the document comes out. Fact check is paid by the obama campaign. You all better pull your heads out of your butts and look into this guy fast!

States have been REQUIRED by the Patriot Act to convert to standardized birth certificates laser-printed on security paper. The originals can then be shredded. It's was a serious security problem that it was easy to steal blank birth cetificate forms, fill them out with an old typewriter, scrawl a signature on them, and use a fake ebossed seal. Just like most banks, for the last 20 years or so, no longer return your checks. They call it SAFEKEEPING. DO they really SAFE KEEP your original checks...No, they digitally convert them and then destroy them. It's a flashback to the "Leave it to Beaver" era when people think that the hospital you were born in, or the Court House can open a filing cabinet and show you an original birth certificate from decades ago.

we just need to see the vault birth certificate. that's all there is to it.

If Anne Dunham was around she be no help. She was a Communist. Her father was, and they were all tied up with Frank Davis. Frank introduced Obama to drugs. What do you think he was doing in Pakistan, and with Rezko et al, with Ayers?. The homosexuals in Chicago he purportedly did sex and drugs with say he was the biggest drug dealer in Chicago. .

So Obama's grandmother stating that she was present and at his birth in Kenya was a liar and all his kin are also liar's for stating the truth about it. You idiots refuse to see we were all scamed if he was born in Hawaii prove it or is it a face saving deal. To think the dems and Barrack screwed our elections process and got away with it. We have become a nation of kool-aid drinkers
who the democrats have stolen an election from the people. If the dems have nothing to hide from why aren't the documents made public whats the big secret and reason we can't judge for ourselves. Or is a a case like the dems picks lately tax cheats and the double standard
that got us an IRS head who is a proven tax cheat yet he is in charge of the IRS. Does this mean that we also don't have to pay taxes????????? Double standard in your face America now there is a change you can believe in. Yahoo

Silly people. Prove Obama's Mama was EVER in Kenya. And the dumb audio tape "proof" has the grandma saying, no Barack was born in Hawaii. Cheez, what nitwits. I wouldn't produce my library card for 'em.

Fact is that mistranslated or incomplete tape has been debunked, properly translated, and Obama's Grandma, resisted the dumb American saying he wanted to see Obama's supposed Kenyan birth hospital, she saying instead that he was born in Hawaii. You really gotta try to watch where you get your "facts".

"Mystery solved*: Barack Obama was American-born"

Since when is a mystery solved by not looking into it?
Perhaps in Socialist or Communist or other Dictatorship countries ... but now in the land of Liberty?

Mr. Martelle, I regret to inform you that you are in fact totally wrong. Well I don't really regret it.

Totally a fake. Only way this is not a fake is if it is a reprint, but there is zero chance this was the original. Which makes Ben LaBolt a liar.

Just look at the picture. It's in Arial font. I know you are all familiar with it, this post is probably in Arial. ARIAL WAS NOT INVENTED UNTIL 1982 WHEN MICROSOFT INTRODUCED IT. (Go ahead, look it up) I'm not a genius, but I know that if the font was invented in 1982, there's exactly no way for the "Certification of Live Birth" to not be a forgery. I await any type of intelligent response refuting this obvious point. (Not to mention that the proper label on the form is supposed to be Certificate of Live Birth NOT Certification.)

YEARS FROM NOW,WHEN WE GET RID OF THE LIER,HE WILLWRITE THE BOOK"HOW I FOOLED AMERICA"THE MAN IS A CON ARTIST/COMMUNIST,MUSLIM BY BIRTH ,AND IS OUT TO DESTROY THE U.S

Ben Labolt - Email, Address, Phone numbers, everything! 123people.com
This is the same Ben LaBolt who was implicated in the Hillary "1984" attack ad ... It's as if a biography of Jesse James didn't mention his train robberies. ...

Ben Labolt NOT exactly an objective nor authoritative source.

The fact is NOW that this "birthing" has been exposed the apologists admit he was NOT born of native fashion and excuse the historical and founding intent of two parent citizenship a requirement to one and that saying dropping a baby regardless of immigration status "in jurisdiction" clause is "overcome". Flagrant lies, distortions and fabrications: insurgency, espionage, sedition and acts of war all rolled into one.

Barack Obama is a good persidents and he can let my parents hsve guns
