Who is Barack Obama? He has had three different names, and the documents that should tell his story are missing or changed. Anyone seeking the office of President of the United States would want to leave no doubts about who he was or where he came from. Unless, that is, he were not eligible to the office.
Obama or Soetoro or Soebarkah?
In his book Where is the Birth Certificate?, Dr. Jerome Corsi dwells at length on this point. He started looking into the Obama identity in 2008, during the Presidential campaign. First, Democratic activists said that John McCain was not eligible to the office because he was born in the Panama Canal Zone, a US possession, and not on US territory that was either a State or on land ceded from a State (like the District of Columbia). The United States Senate passed a resolution saying that their colleague was a natural-born citizen anyway. (That question is not settled.) But then, the Hillary Clinton campaign asked whether Barack Obama is a natural-born citizen. As suddenly as they started asking, they stopped asking. But World Net Daily, as it then called itself, did not stop.
Dr. Corsi found out, among other things, that Obama has had three different names at different times in his life. The short-form Certification of Live Birth gives his name as “Barack Hussein Obama II.” So does the long-form birth certificate document that the White House would later release. Yet he registered to go to school in Indonesia, later in life, as “Barry Soetoro.” Obama’s mother, Stanley Ann Dunham, married Lolo Soetoro in 1967, and that might explain the name change. But when she was reapplying for a passport, she listed one son, and crossed his name out with hash marks, to show that the son had changed nationality. The name she wrote in was “Barack Hussein Obama (Soebarkah).” Two reportssuggest what the name Soebarkah might mean. “Soebarkah” was the name that Lolo Soetoro gave young Barack (or Barry) when he formally adopted the boy. The elder Soetoro adopted young Obama to make him an Indonesian citizen and enroll him in Indonesian state schools. (The Fellowship of the Minds report suggests also that Obama might have wanted to become Prime Minister of Indonesia someday.)
Corsi also found a picture that no one has been able to explain. It shows a tall boy who might be a young Obama. Its caption identifies him as “Barry” and says that he was in the third grade, in an American grade school. When Dr. Corsi spoke about this to the group Americans for Liberty the night before last, he quipped,
Now he not only has three different names; he is also going to two different schools at once!
What hospital was Obama born in?
That’s another thing that we don’t know. The separate announcements that have appeared (and in some cases, disappeared) in print over the years have “Barack Hussein Obama II” born in Queen’s Medical Center or in Kapiolani Maternal and Gynecological Hospital (as it then called itself), depending on whom you ask. Corsi went to Queen’s medical center and found no record that Stanley Ann Dunham had ever checked in there. And so, says Corsi, the story changed. In fact, Corsi found a letter, ostensibly from Obama on White House stationery, congratulating Kapiolani Medical Center for Women and Children (as it now calls itself) and remembering that he was born there. But:
That letter is a computer-generated document, not a hard copy.
Kapiolani officials do not display it.
If this were my hospital, and the President of the United States was born there, I would build a shrine in the lobby [to commemorate that fact]!
Instead, when Corsi went to Kapiolani to find evidence that a “Barack Hussein Obama II” was born there, hospital officials told him to leave. Or else their security department would throw him out, or worse, call the Honolulu Police!
So Obama was born in two different hospitals. Or was he? Corsi also found glowing testimonials from Kenyan sources, some of them official, that Obama was a “native son” of Kenya. That might be an idle boast. Or is it? Why are entry records at Idlewild (now JFK) Airport in New York, and Honolulu Airport in Hawaii, between August 2 and August 7 inclusive, 1961, missing from the National Archives?
More flaws in the birth certificate
Alvin T. Onaka, the Hawaii registrar, seems to be whimsical: he turned the capital "A" of his signature into a "smiley face." Note also that he misspells "THE" as "TXE" on what should be a rubber stamp. Photo: CNAV
The Obama birth certificate document has never completely satisfied the skeptics from the moment the White House released it. This entry describes yet another problem: in Stanley Ann Dunham Obama’s signature on the long form. She signed it “Ann Dunham Obama.” Or did she? Actually, she signed it “Ann D.” (Or someone did.) And then someone else, using a computer mouse, filled in the rest. The proof? The cursive trace, beginning with the lowercase “u” in “Dunham,” is solid jet-black. The word “Ann” and the capital “D” are in various shades of gray, as the scan of any normal signature would be.
There’s more. As CNAVshowed before, the State Registrar of Hawaii, Alvin T. Onaka, seems to have added a whimsical touch to his signature. He, or someone else, added at least three pen strokes to turn the capital A into a smiling face. The real Alvin T. Onaka has never signed official documents that way before or since. Never. A simple search on the name Alvin T. Onaka on Google.com turns up four images of his signature. Andheretheyare. One of them is the signature on the White House Obama birth certificate document. (See CNAV‘s own blow-up of that signature.) The other three are his signatures on other documents. On each of those other occasions, Alvin T. Onaka signed his name with a regular Palmer Method capital A, and not with an A looking like a smiling head in left profile.
A draft card with a two-digit year
The most damning finding that Corsi shared with the activists that night, was Obama’s draft card. Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Maricopa County, AZ, and his Cold Case Posse, got a hard copy of that card, by means of the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). That card has two digits for the year, and those digits appear in the usual one’s and ten’s places for a four-digit year. Any other draft card uses four digits for the year.
In investigating bunco or forgery, detectives often reconstruct the crime. And that is what Sheriff Arpaio’s team did. They bought an old date stamp of the kind that the Post Office once used to stamp draft cards. They then bought a hobbyist’s knife and blades from the X-Acto Corporation. Hobbyists everywhere use these knives; this correspondent remembers using one. The Cold Case Posse found that they could easily cut out the year from a date stamp, trim a piece having the digits they wanted, and put it back into the slot. But when they did that, they would have to move those digits to one side or the other.
The problem that the forgers must have had, is that they could not get any more date stamps from the twentieth century. Thus they could not get a date stamp from 1980 or indeed any year with the digits 19 (or even 61) in it. So they took a date stamp from 2008, cut out the “2008″, cut off the “08″ from the “20″, flipped the “08″ to read “80″, and put that piece back into the stamp. Except that they did not cut the date off neatly. They trimmed off part of the numeral 8 when they made their first cut.
(Corsi noticed another problem: Barack H. Obama seems to have signed that card differently from how he signs official White House letters today.)
This is the most serious matter thus far. Forging a draft card is a federal offense.
Sheriff Arpaio’s team asked the Selective Service System for another copy of the draft card. This time, the agency turned the sheriff down. In refusing him, the SSS director tartly suggested that if the Sheriff thinks that someone has committed a crime, let him go to the FBI!
Here, then, is the evidence:
Two different hospitals.
Three different names.
Two different grade schools at once.
A birth certificate that satisfies no one.
A draft card that someone forged, and crudely so.
(And also a passport that gives Obama’s full name without the Roman numeral suffix on his birth certificate.)
In any other case, this would be probable cause to suspect someone of trying to be someone he is not. Police have a word for this sort of thing: identity theft. This case is far more serious. Barack H. Obama has never shown that he is a natural-born citizen of the United States. If his father was indeed Barack H. Obama, Senior, then he would not be a natural-born citizen anyway, because his father was a British colonial subject.
This is why the sheriff of Maricopa County is still investigating.
