1/3M Urge Obama Comes Clean Over Citizenship

A third of a million people are urging US authorities to investigate Obama's eligibility to be president, as demands grow to come clean over his citizenship and birth. Now two US soldiers in Iraq have spoken out, questioning his authority as commander-in-chief. 

Questions over Obama's citizenship and doubts over his birth certificate have swirled around since before the US elections and refuse to go away. 

Now a petition with more than 293,200 signatures is growing longer by the day, openly challenging Obama's eligibility to be president and raising fundamental constitutional and legal issues. 

A second US soldier in Iraq has joined the challenge to Obama's eligibility to be commander-in-chief, following US soldier, 1st Lt. Scott Easterling, who called president Obama an "impostor" and has agreed to be a plaintiff in a lawsuit over the issue highlighted by WorldNetDaily.

Obama "has absolutely refused to provide to the American public his original birth certificate, as well as other documents which may prove or disprove his eligibility," Easterling told WorldNetDaily. "In fact, he has fought every attempt made by concerned citizens in their effort to force him to do so." 

The second soldier asked that he be given no "unnecessary publicity," although his name eventually would become public when a case is filed. 

Both men are highlighted by WorldNetDaily which is also organising the latest petition to be passed on to US authorities, amid concerns a "constitutional crisis" could be looming over the issue of Obama's citizenship. 

The petition is in addition to more than 60,000 separate letters delivered to the US Supreme Court, encouraging justices to review claims about Obama's ineligibility.

Clearly some of this could be party political sour grapes and skulduggery or a dislike of Obama, rather than concern over legal and constitutional issues. Nevertheless the numbers are large enough to merit serious consideration by the US authorities and courts.

The Orange Party first highlighted doubts and questions over Obama's citizenship and eligibility to run for president back in August, as a huge internet campaign began to gain momentum in the run up to the US elections and legal challenges started to sweep across the States. 

But with a bigger wave of Obamamania sweeping the country, it became clear such issues were destined to be swept under the carpet as part of unprecidented campaign of media manipulation.

Many have raised questions about Obama's qualifications to be US president, because of the secrecy over his birth certificate and the requirement for presidents be "natural-born" US citizens.

Defend Our Freedom Foundation is working on a series of legal cases seeking to uncover Obama's birth records and other documents that would reveal whether he meets the requirements of the US Constitution.

Obama seems to have waltzed through the inauguration and swearing-in ceremonies without proving he was born in America as he claims. 

The issue of Obama's citizenship was first highlighted by the Orange Party, when US bloggers revealed an alleged copy of Obama's birth certificate, posted by his campaign team on the internet showing his birth place as Hawaii, was a fake

Later revelations centred on Obama's Indonesian school record which, as Barack Soetoro, showed Indonesian citizenship.

Multiple legal challenges to Obama's status as a 'natural born citizen' have been made in the US courts. Obama has always maintained he was born in Hawaii to support his claim for US citizenship and representatives for Obama have called such ineligibility claims "garbage".

But some of the lawsuits question whether he was actually born in Hawaii, as he insists. 

Some challenges focus on Obama's citizenship through his father, a Kenyan subject to UK jurisdiction at the time of his birth, thus making him a dual citizen. The cases contend the Constitution excluded dual citizens from qualifying as 'natural born'.

Obama's half-sister, Maya Soetoro, has named two different Hawaii hospitals where Obama could have been born, fuelling the speculation. 

The central issue is, if a Hawaii birth certificate exists, as his administration has continually stated, why hasn't Obama simply ordered the original paper vault copy to be made available to settle the rumours?

All these lawsuits and challenges would be dropped and the matter cleared up once and for all, if Obama would simply provide the requested official, original, paper documents, supporting his claim of being born in Hawaii.

A wave of state lawsuits challenging Obama's claims to US citizenship swept across the US as the presidential campaign entered its final days. 

Those cases continue in courts across several US states including New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, California, Chicago and Hawaii, North Carolina, Ohio, Washington state, Georgia and Texas.

Many believe Obama is just a smooth-talking snake-oil salesman who's been propelled to power by a slick Chicago marketing machine, set on raising false hopes and shattering the dreams of millions of decent, honest Americans. 

Now with the Obamashine starting to wear off, the central constitutional issues are becoming increasingly important. 

Obama's eligibility raises fundamental constitutional issues as the Obama camp has steadfastly continued to flannel and fudge on the issue over the election of the most powerful person on the planet. 

Despite the best efforts of the White House and much of the Main stream media, doubts over Obama's citizenship and eligibility as president and commander-in-chief will not go away.

The Orange Party believes these doubts, questions and challenges will continue to linger and fester until the wheels finally start to fall of the Obama bandwagon. 

At which point they'll be used as ammunition as a ground swell of public opinion turns against Obamaland. That's often the American way.

Lt. Easterling reminds me of a lifelong welfare recipient who refuses a job at McDonalds, or anywhere else, because it's beneath them. This guy is pathetic crybaby having a fit because his side didn't win the election. Wrapping yourself in a fallacy under the guise of defending the constitution is the same as living off taxpayers because you weren't offered the job you want.
Loser or kook, it doesn't matter, suck it up and accept the will of the voter or quit (I'm sure the army can survive fine without him).
