April 27, 2011 The significance of the release by Obama of a detailed U.S. birth certificate

Today in MSN news the article below was published. It is about the release of the long form birth certificate by Obama.

Many questions arise from this release.

1) Why it was released now?

2) Why did he spend countless amounts of money to avoid its release

3) Who paid for that money?

4) Is the release authentic?

5) Is all the information contained there verifiable and authentic?

6) Was this all part of an overall plan to discredit the opposition and make them look banal and out of touch with reality?

7) Will this hamper the effort to obtain all the rest of the information that he has hidden from the public?

It is obvious that this man has a very dark hidden agenda up his sleeve, and all the nefarious people behind him are equally devious and evil. He does not exult transparency, trustfulness and light. He walks in darkness and darkness follows as a cloak over him.

Reader there is a lot of information that is true about this man to render the verdict of guilty as accused. He is the Antichrist, the man of sin, the son of perdition, the 666, the abomination of desolation, the son of perdition and so on. Be not fooled by his manipulation of facts and look deep beneath the veneer of respectability and success that his handlers have so aptly constructed.

All glory and honor and praise belong only to Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior and not to this farce of an usurper.

WASHINGTON — Responding to critics’ relentless claims, President Barack Obama on Wednesday produced a detailed Hawaii birth certificate in an extraordinary attempt to bury the issue of where he was born and confirm his legitimacy to hold office. He declared, “We do not have time for this kind of silliness.”

By going on national TV from the White House, Obama portrayed himself as a voice of reason amid a loud, lingering debate on his birth status. Though his personal attention to the issue elevated it as never before, Obama said to Republican detractors and the media, it is time to move on to bigger issues.

“Over the last two and a half years I have watched with bemusement, I’ve been puzzled at the degree to which this thing just kept on going,” said the president.

While saying he would not normally address such an issue, Obama said he wanted “to make a larger point” encourage the media and the American people to focus other issues, like the looming budget debate.

“I’m confident the American people and America’s political leaders can come together in a bipartisan way and solve these problems,” he said, before going on the warn, “We’re not gonna be able to solve our problems if we get distracted by sideshows and carnival barkers.”

Obama spoke shortly after the White House released a copy of the long form of his birth certificate, which contains more extensive data than a version released earlier.

Trump takes credit for birth certificate release

The certificate says Obama was born to an American mother and Kenyan father, in Hawaii, which makes him eligible to hold the office of president. Obama released a standard short form before he was elected in 2008 but requested copies of his original birth certificate from Hawaii officials this week in hopes of quieting the lingering controversy.

White House officials have said the issue was settled long ago. But so-called “birthers” opposed to Obama have kept it alive. Potential Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump recently began questioning why Obama hadn’t ensured the long form was released.

From New Hampshire, Trump took credit for getting Obama to act.

“He should have done it a long time ago. I am really honored to play such a big role in hopefully, hopefully getting rid of this issue,” Trump said.

Polls show large numbers of Republicans have continued to doubt Obama is a natural born citizen eligible to be president. Trump, the bombastic real estate mogul, has seized on the issue as he weighs a GOP candidacy.

While Obama and White House officials avoided mentioning Trump by name, officials said they released the birth certificate partially because the issue had moved beyond fringe discussion, and Obama criticized a media culture that had not let the story go.

He did not take any questions and did not say why the document had not been released earlier.

While Wednesday marked the first time the president has spoken extensively about the issue, he hasn’t completely ignored the issue. Last year at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, Obama joked, “Obviously I’m most pleased that Michelle accompanied me. She doesn’t always go to these things. And there are few things in life that are harder to find and more important to keep than love — well, love and a birth certificate.”

Many Republican leaders have sought to distance themselves from the “birther” theory as a discredited notion not worthy of national public debate.

In a statement after Obama spoke, Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus called the issue a distraction — and yet blamed Obama for playing campaign politics by addressing it.

“The president ought to spend his time getting serious about repairing our economy,” Priebus said. “Unfortunately his campaign politics and talk about birth certificates is distracting him from our number one priority — our economy.”

House Speaker John Boehner’s spokesman also released a statement, saying, “This has long been a settled issue.”

The newly released certificate is signed by the delivery doctor, Obama’s mother and the local registrar. His mother, then 18, signed her name (Stanley) Ann Dunham Obama.

The form says Barack Hussein Obama II was born at 7:24 p.m. on Aug. 4, 1961, at Kapiolani Maternity and Gynecological Hospital, within the city limits of Honolulu.

There’s no mention of religion. It says his father, Barack Hussein Obama, age 25, was African and born in Kenya and his mother was Caucasian and born in Wichita, Kan. Obama’s mother and the doctor signed the certificate on Aug. 7 and 8.

Hawaii’s registrar certified the new photocopy of the document provided to the White House on April 25, 2011.

The White House also released a letter from the president on April 22 requesting two certified copies of his original certificate of live birth. Also released was a letter from Loretta Fuddy, Hawaii’s director of health, approving the request.

The president’s personal counsel, Judith Corley, traveled to Hawaii to pick up the documents and carried them back to Washington on a plane. The documents arrived at the White House around 5 p.m. Tuesday.
