NJ activist: Obama has disqualified himself

Nick Purpura prepares to reargue his health care reform bill case. Now he's arguing a right to bear arms case--before the US Supreme Court, no less.

The lead plaintiff in the most comprehensive lawsuit against the healthcare-reform bill reiterated today that Barack Obama has just disqualified himself as President by releasing a purported birth certificate plainly showing that his father was an alien. And several century-old sources appear to support him.

Nicholas E. Purpura, lead plaintiff in Purpura v. Sebelius, said that the document contains a key disqualifying statement: it lists Obama’s father, Barack H. Obama Senior, and gives the father’s birthplace as “Kenya, East Africa.” That one fact, says Purpura, says that Obama was and is a dual citizen and not a natural-born citizen within the meaning of Article II, Section 5 of the US Constitution.

As if that were not a sufficient disqualifier, Purpura cited Obama’s autobiography, Dreams of My Father. In that work, Obama (or William Ayers writing for Obama) says:

I am a dual citizen.

Said Purpura in summary:

He’s just disqualified himself, right there. He is not authorized, nor was he ever authorized, to sign the healthcare law or any other law!

Obama birth certificate does not satisfy

The Obama birth certificate. Why is this still accepted as valid? The Birther movement still matters, for the precedent.

The release yesterday of the apparent long-form birth certificate for President Barack H. Obama has done little to settle the debate on Obama’s citizenship, and has raised further questions varying from whether the document is authentic and whether it might show that Obama is not a natural-born citizen.

The document, embedded below, is a “Certificate of Live Birth,” not to be confused with the “Certification of Live Birth” that merely attests that a traditional birth certificate is on file. The form looks like a photocopy of a page in a bound ledger, and conforms in most respects to the forms of other “Certificates of Live Birth” issued in that same year.

Obama releases official-looking birth certificate

Alleged long form birth certificate of Barack Hussein Obama

The White House today released what it said was a “long-form birth certificate” from the State of Hawaii. But the release seemed to raise more questions than it answered.

The document, available from the White House as a PDF file, appears to be a photocopy of a page in a bound volume, printed on paper having a green pattern that appears often as a background for documents of this kind. It bears identifying numbers from the Hawaii Department of Health. It says that one Barack Hussein Obama II was born on August 4, 1961, at Kapiolani Maternity and Gynecological Hospital,6086 Kalanianaole Highway, Honolulu, Hawaii. The parents are listed as Barack Hussein Obama (Senior), age 25, and Stanley Ann Dunham, age 18. A photograph appeared on “TwitPic” with the bottom third of the form slightly out-of-focus, but these PDF scans are well within focus.
