With dozens of lawsuits filed over access to Barack Obama’s certified long-form birth certificate, many more lawyers working on his behalf to keep it secret and the validity of the U.S. Constitution hanging in the balance, guess where a “certified copy” of the original Mombasa “document” has been found?

On eBay.

Item No. 160344928067, at least as of today, is described as “a certified copy of President Barack Obama’s Kenyan Birth Certificate.”

Sounds appropriately derisive. Now what’s this?

Is this really smoking gun of Obama’s Kenyan birth?
Attorney files motion for authentication of alleged 1960s certificate from Africa

WASHINGTON – California attorney Orly Taitz, who has filed a number of lawsuits demanding proof of Barack Obama’s eligibility to serve as president, has released a copy of what purports to be a Kenyan certification of birth and has filed a new motion in U.S. District Court for its authentication.

This document purports to be a Kenyan certification of birth for Barack Obama, allegedly born in Mombasa, Kenya, in 1961
The document lists Obama’s parents as Barack Hussein Obama and Stanley Ann Obama, formerly Stanley Ann Dunham, the birth date as Aug. 4, 1961, and the hospital of birth as Coast General Hospital in Mombasa, Kenya.

It goes on to say the original Kenya document was found to be a hoax, but this one that Taitz has is totally legit and fer rill. That seems a little weird: here’s an article – dated before the one describing the auction itself – that says they were never able to get ahold of it in the first place. Seems like WND needs to get on the same page with itself.

    QUESTION:

    What happens to Judge Sotomayor’s confirmation as Supreme Court Justice if the Constitution’s “natural born citizen” Presidential eligibility requirement is subsequently determined applicable to Barack Obama on the basis of Article 2’s exclusion of dual citizenship birth (doesn’t matter whether Obama born in Hawaii since his dad was Kenyan/British citizen at the time)? It would seem prudent, if not dereliction of Constitutional duty in not so doing, for the United States Senate to defer voting on Judge Sotomayor’s confirmation at the very least until there is determination, now imminent, on standing in Kerchner v. Congress (USDC NJ) on that precise issue (Congressional failure to take up the raised and known constitutional ineligibility question prior to declaring a Presidential winner in the vote of the electoral college). For the full Senate now to proceed to vote to confirm Judge Sotomayor (an otherwise lifetime appointment) before then, would be a knowing and very substantial exacerbation of any inherent Constitutional crisis — compounding the previous Congressional dereliction. That is, the Executive Branch, as well as conceivably all actions of a Congress under a President determined ineligible, would leave the Supreme Court as an essential unfettered remaining Branch of the Federal Government, that is unfettered so long as Mr. Obama’s nominee to the Court is not yet confirmed by the Senate.

    Will not one Senator, let alone Republican Senator, raise this issue on the Senate floor? The nation is watching.

      Thanks for the copypasta (you forgot to edit out “Leave a Reply.”) What would happen? I don’t know and I don’t care. You, Orly Taitz and a few similar misfits are the only ones who subscribe to this exceedingly-fringe interpretation of the ‘natural born citizen’ requirement. (Ever head of Chester Arthur or Andrew Jackson?) As far as anyone else, the law, etc. are concerned someone who’s born in America is perfectly eligible to be President of the USA. Congressional dereliction, unfettered blah blah.. I get so tired of watching people play the Exciting Dramatic Language game. No, one Republican Senator will not raise this issue. They think you’re just as crazy as I do and the only reason they humor you to the extent they do is because they realize you nutballs are concentrated in the South just like they are (go read up on the DailyKos / Research 2k poll) and they’re worried you’re going to show up at town hall meetings and shout at them like you did Mike Castle. To the extent that “the nation is watching” it’s doing so in order to point and laugh. Have fun with your valiant crusade to spam the comment sections of blogs with single-digit readerships.
