Here it is folks! The document we have been waiting for! Now what, The Supreme Court?
Widely circulated; challenge to Obama's Birthplace and to US Citizenship !
Whether we like it - believe it - or disbelieve it.
"Barack Hussein Obama II General Hospital, Mombassa, Kenya where Obama was born a few hours later at 7:21 pm on August 4, 1961(what a sad day for the USA!). Four days later his mother flew to Hawaii and registered his birth in Honolulu as a certificate of live birth which omitted the place and hospital of birth."
Well, well, well, at last the 'real' thing. Now, what will happen?
Whom do you believe? This man should be impeached -- now!
Now if only someone in Congress or the Supreme Court will act on this!
If these documents are as authentic as they certainly seem to be, Obama is NOT qualified to be our President and he sits in the White House illegally!
This is what Obama has spent almost $2 M (so far) to hide.

Skeptics quickly identified a variety of reasons for questioning the legitimacy of the supposed Kenyan document, such as:
- The document is dated 17 February 1964 and a bears a legend identifying it as having been issued by the "Republic of Kenya," but Kenya (a former British colony) didn't officially adopt that name until
12 December1964. In February 1964, it was known as the Dominion of Kenya.
- The listed age of Barack Obama's father is incorrect. (Barack Obama Sr. was born in 1936 and therefore would have been 24 or
25 yearsold at the time of Barack Jr.'sbirth, not 26 as shown on the document.)
- Mombasa is very far (several hundred miles) away from the part of Kenya in which Barack
Obama Sr.'sfamily lived. Even if Barack Obama's parents and family had wanted to travel away from their home so his birth could take place at hospital facilities within a large city, they would likely have set out for the much closer city of Nairobi.
(Note the many features shared by these documents: Same certificate number, same book number, same page number, and the remarkable similarities in
When reporters tracked down David Bomford, who currently lives in Adelaide, South Australia, for comment, he was somewhat bemused at having become the focus of an international news story:
"It is interesting someone from here being involved in a
Bomford said he knew nothing about the "birthers'" claims.
He said the fake Kenyan birth certificate contained his personal details and was clearly based on his own South Australian document.
"It's definitely a copy of my certificate. It's so laughable it's ridiculous," he said.
Bomford said he only expected relatives researching their family tree would be interested in the document when it was posted on the Internet.
Another Barack Obama "Kenyan birth certificate" of dubious origin was offered for sale by one Lucas Smith via eBay in August 2009:
This document exhibited many of the same red flags as the previous forgery, including its identification of the location of Barack
This has always been a red flag for conspiracy theorists, so it deserves some explanation. Barack
Plaintiff's counsel, who champions herself as a defender of liberty and freedom, seeks to use the power of the judiciary to compel a citizen, albeit the President of the United States, to "prove his innocence" to "charges" that are based [solely] upon conjecture and speculation. Any middle school civics student would readily recognize the irony of abandoning [the] fundamental principles upon which our country was founded in order to purportedly "protect and preserve" those very principles.
Plaintiff's counsel is hereby notified that the filing of any future actions in this Court, which are similarly frivolous, shall subject counsel to sanctions.
