What if the president of the United States is not constitutionally eligible to serve? Is it possible that a straightforward criterion was overlooked during a long, grueling, expensive campaign? Why are so many questions about something so simple still going unanswered? A Question of Eligibility goes where no other documentary has dared to go in seeking the answers to those questions, including one that millions of Americans are asking: "Why won't Barack Obama release publicly the long-form birth certificate he claims to have from the state of Hawaii?"

In this video, you will hear from four experts on the subject: Dr. Jerome Corsi, the author of the New York Times No. 1 bestseller The Obama Nation; Orly Taitz, the Southern California lawyer who has led the legal fight to secure the evidence of Barack Obama's eligibility; Alan Keyes, a third-party presidential candidate in 2008 and the man who challenged Obama for the Illinois U.S. Senate seat that served as a springboard to his presidential ambitions; and Janet Porter, a radio talk-show host and political activist who has championed the constitutional issue.

The question of eligibility was asked and answered long before Obama ever ran for office - long before he was chosen as the Democratic presidential candidate. Had there been any sort of "question of eligibility", the Republicans would have screamed long and loud about it during the campaign.

The best they could come up with was calling Barak's and Michelle's fist bump a "terrorist bump". Complete fail.

Personally i like to use common sense for my logic.

And if obama as you say "eligibility was answered" we wouldn't be here talking right now.
That's common sense.

It does seem funny not 1 soul has collected that Ten Thousand dollar reward for just proving they witnessed obama's Hawaiian birth.
Heck i saw elementary school teacher's claiming they remembered obama.
and basketball coach's.
But not 1 soul can say i witnessed his birth.
EXCEPT his kenyan grandmother.



To me i feel like someone is trying to pull the wool over our eye's.
No transparency.

As far as the birth announcement goes.
That's craziness there...I have a sister than live's in California.
i am in Kentucky.
I paid the newspaper X amount of dollar's they put it in the paper .
Because she was from this town.
I could have said the kid's name was erica snodpocket it didn't matter..much like a want ad.

that part isn't hard to figure out how the announcement got there.
His grandparent's.

as for republican's would have hung him out to dry before the election.

I say they would have hinted...Mcain is allways very verbal..He wasn't durign the debate's..ask ya self why?
Hillary hinted on it..she is now in a great job..Thanks to obama..

They wanted him to win!
Why because when they prove he has fraud the American people.
It in turn will sink the democratic party system for 50 year's or maybe destroy it completely.
Notice how the democrat's congress side and vote blindly with obama?
They will loose there standing when he is found to be a fraud.

watch and see.
It make's perfect common sense if why they would not come out and say it off the bat.
If they knew for sure.

My guess is that most if not all of the people witnessing his birth in Hawaii are elderly by now, and may not even be alive.

I think this is an excellent and well-thought-out compilation that does a very good job of fairly laying out the questions and reasons for same of this issue.

Well worth watching ALL 4 parts, regardless of which side of the fence a person is on, or, like myself, undecided & full of questions. Questions that -- from both sides -- often degrade into character attacks rather than directly addressing the questions. And why? My opinion - because those who really CAN answer the questions choose to not do so.

I this this series also does a good job of showing just how President Obama could've gotten to the oval office without having first establishing credentials for same. Lots of interesting evidence here. "Proof" of this or that statement is often called for as a debate point; Proof is a condition established in a court of law, and if one prevents evidence from being herd, proof cannot be established. Simple. Effective.

The questions remain.

Seems biased like they have an agenda. a WND production. World Net Daily? That explains a lot. In a good documentary you just present the facts and let the audience decide. The disagreement with his policies is not relevant to this particular issue.

I do want to say I have questions, such as why not release the BC if they say they have it?

Who knows if he is legally able to be president? Either way we will never find out. Either he blocked his birth certificate because he has something to hide or maybe he just likes the attention and did it so people could talk. Personally I think he has something to hide. Either way we will never know, which is his way of slapping us in the face. He probably thinks it is funny!!!!

It is like intelligence overload. I almost cannot deal with the facts, he was obviously placed into position for some one world agenda. If like they say in the vido, even a janitor at the white house has to produce their credentials, then why cant we get this little job done? Whats to say of the big issues?

Depressing.

It is interesting about the fact no one has come forward with an account of his birth in Hawaii. Granted they might all be dead at this point, possibly, but I would think someone would have little trouble remembering the event.

It had to be fairly rare at that time in Hawaii for a black/white couple to exist. One would think it would be memorable enough that this controversy would spark a memory in a hospital worker. Wouldn't one of the staff who was involved come forward for the $10,000 FRN's?

Now, I've been having a thought on this whole BC issue that seems to be capturing a lot of the focus of people in the "Truth Movement". I think everyone can agree that TPTB are not stupid and they didn't get into the positions that they hold by being so. That being said, I still think that these people are planning 10 moves ahead of everyone now. So, maybe, just maybe, they knew that people would question his eligibility to be president by probably releasing a rumor that he wasn't a natural born citizen. Controlling the opposition. People would pick up on it and they made Obama sign that executive order to make it "look" like he was hiding something. I don't think these people are going to pick Obama to be President if he were in fact a citizen from Kenya. Although, the person above does make sense that it could ruin the democratic side of Left/Right paradigm and smear the whole party. My personal belief though is that the people who are spending their time discussing this issue are being led around in circles to distract them. It would make sense since a lot of people who are in this movement are on the bandwagon into this. So, they have him do that executive order, it makes it look like he's hiding something, then TPTB sit back and laugh while they watch all these people wasting their time on this issue and in turn smear the truth movement even further. It's killing two birds with one stone right there. Until there is absolute proof that Obama is a citizen of Kenya and people can provide a "real" birth certificate of him being from Kenya, I don't think it should be at the top of our list. Besides, what is proving he was born in Kenya really going to do? At the most he'll get taken out of office, and then they'll just put another one of their front men into the same position while they stay in the background and continue their work. I think people need to stop acting like they're smarter than these people and they're going to catch them tripping up. They didn't stay in power this long by making mistakes, unless they're mistakes that they want the people to find out because they know what's going to happen after the fact. It's all a game of chess and I think we should start treating it as such and try to look ahead 10 moves instead of only looking 1-2 moves.

I'll admit it is a bit strange why he doesnt just release the long form birth certificate, but at the same time I can't help but think maybe this too is part of his plan, "hear me out", by letting this keep building up, and getting all these people fired up, by time election time gets here, maybe he will be on stage in a debate and the guy hosting ask him about it, and at that very moment he reaches in his coat, and pulls it out and goes, it's right here and this just goes to show you how wrong the right wing conspiracy nuts will go. At that moment he wins a huge knock out punch to the republican party, who he will make look like its all them who started it.
Make no misstake about it, Barack Obama is very very good at this game of politics, he is not someone you really would want to tangle with. We have been watching this man for sometime and his connections go very deep, his intellegence is one to be feared and admired. Understand that he and their are a lot of others just like him, who are geniuses at the game of politics.

I can't believe you're still in this left right paradigm. Havent you learned anything? Havent you learned both parties fight infront of the public but behind the scenes they work for the same corrupt people? You're delusional. Are you related to nancy pelosi?

That would make me even angrier, for a him to pull a stunt like that.

I don't think most people would like it.

I thought it was a good video.. Then I got half way through part two and they started showing all the quotes from the news about socialism and all that. Problem I have is every one of the quotes the showed was from Fox News.. Enough said. It had me up until that point. At any rate, thanks for the video OP

"I may be the only person left who specifically remembers his birth. His parents are gone, his grandmother is gone, the obstetrician who delivered him is gone," said Nelson, referring to Dr. Rodney T. West, who died in February at the age of 98. Here's the story: Nelson was having dinner at the Outrigger Canoe Club on Waikiki Beach with Dr. West, the father of her college friend, Jo-Anne. Making conversation, Nelson turned to Dr. West and said: "So, tell me something interesting that happened this week," she recalls.

His response: "Well, today, Stanley had a baby. Now that's something to write home about."

The new mother was Stanley (later referred to by her middle name of Ann) Dunham, and the baby was Barack Hussein Obama.

"I penned the name on a napkin, and I did write home about it," said Nelson, knowing that her father, Stanley A. Czurles, director of the Art Education Department at Buffalo State College, would be interested in the "Stanley" connection.

She also remembers that the baby's father was the first black student at the University of Hawaii and how taken he was by the baby's name.

"I remember Dr. West saying 'Barack Hussein Obama, now that's a musical name," said Nelson.


Snopes source

So yes, apparently someone that remembers his birth has come forward and interviewed about it.

Of course the response to this will be that she's a part of the conspiracy as well. Those dastardly 80 year old women!

alot of people whom believe this tripe are spending alot of time and money chasing it...doing all these sweeping movements..there are people spending their own personal fortune to bring this up

My advice to Obama...do nothing to cater to them...let them go broke.

Why hasnt Obama proven he is a earthling? A president needs to be a earthling to run for office and yet Obama has not given the full human genome map of himself to answer this question once and for all. Obama is a alien


Why hasnt Obama proven he is not a witch? All we are asking is that he let us do tests such as the spot of the beast check and water floating. Obama must be a witch...else he would simply allow these tests to be done


Why hasnt Obama proven he isnt part of my dream? All I am asking is he come here himself and let me pinch him. if he yelps, clearly he isnt and then he is a legit president. It seems due to the fact he hasnt bowed to my whim, he must therefore be a figment of my imagination and therefore not able to be POTUS.

Why ha...etc

(lesson: Never give in to the demands of terrorists or mentally unsound individuals...no good ever comes from catering to either).


Why doesnt he release his full long record? Cause he doesnt have to. He met the requirements according to Congress, the Consitution, and every law professors consensus. He is not going to cater towards conspiracy theorists and he shouldnt.

The Constitution assumes the POTUS will be human, thus it isn't a Constitutional requirement.

If I were to use your methodology, I would insist that you prove he is not a witch.......... but that would be extra silly, wouldn't it?

Again, not a Constitutional requirement.

Surely not a nightmare?


(lesson: Never give in to the demands of terrorists or mentally unsound individuals...no good ever comes from catering to either).


Oh, I don't know about that. I think if you're going to paint with a broad brush and label people as mentally unsound and/or terrorists without first producing credentials that supports your ability to do so, you pretty much have to get what you give. Besides, I think I'm doing a bit of good right now..... Of course, I wouldn't exactly characterize my response to you as .... catering

Yes, I understand those are rhetorical questions. Rhetoric, in itself is not necessarily a bad thing. Who doesn't enjoy a persuasive argument? I read you expressing your opinion, and I understand that you are passionate about it; you expressed it as a fact. My opinion is that I don't know for certain where President Obama was born. Like many people, I have questions. I'm fairly certain he holds the cards and paperwork to aleviate all these questions, and has chosen to not do so. Don't you ever just wonder........ why? Yes, you're absolutely right. Apparently -- at least currently -- the President does not have to show anybody anything.

Oh, before I forget, would you mind just jotting down a quickie list of every law professor that made up that consensus? I'd like to store that in my favorites. I like to keep the data organized as much as I can, and that would be very helpful. Thanks!

I tried to post a nice cartoon vid of a guy beating a dead horse, didn't work.
Why would I waste time watching a propaganda video?
OBAMA'S A SOCIALIST!!!!! OH NO!!!!!
Why wasn't this BS brought up before he was elected!?
Wait, that's right it was and Obama won by a large margin.
WorldNutDaily is just a right wing/ fundamentalist site for Obam haters and paranoids.
When will the frightened far right simply get it through their heads tha like it or not, the country has rejected their philosophy and Obama is President.
Stop flogging a dead horse!

The argument that "somebody would have said something if he wasn't eligible" isn't convincing. backward reasoning. particularly since the chicago political machine plays rough. people who had tidbits knew it would be safer to keep quiet. i don't know what the truth is. personally i think he was born in hawaii but there are many murky issues about the "natural born" aspect because of parental and adoption issues.

The really interesting thing is that someone can get elected without having to prove that he is eligible. there really does need to be a formal process that any candidate must go through, documents presented and rulings made to clear up murkiness, before the name goes on the ballot in the general election. it would behoove any serious candidate to do it during the primaries. I suspect this will happen before the next election. No matter what side you're on in this debate, it should never have gotten to this. Had the Berg case been heard and ruled upon, this question wouldn't be haunting us now. Why wasn't it heard?

It also raises a question in my mind of how illusory our picture of reality is. We are "given" information by spinners from all sides. Each one only presents what proves his or her case. No wonder we are all confused.

Questions about socialist or communist sympathies that obama might have are irrelevant to the eligibility discussion. COMPLETELY irrelevant. as is race. none of these things relate to whether he is eligible for the office.

We are in this situation because those who purport to be watching out for us, our elected leaders and the "free press" completely fell down on their job. They did not look into this eligibility question last year when it needed to be resolved because they stood to gain so much from being silent. all three branches of government are guilty as well as the press who mostly supported obama openly. only fox presented criticism but not that much. bill o'reilly falls all over himself defending obama to this day because he was granted an interview with the democratic candidate and keeps hoping that if he's positive enough he'll get another...someday. this is not honest journalism.

so what happens now? to let it go really isn't a solution. people are already furious about spending bills being rammed down their throats, about a health care overhaul that is supposed to be essential only nobody will reveal the actual details. if it turns out that facts were suppressed or ignored to get this man elected, citizens will be justifiably furious. i'm not sure this will break down on racial lines. blacks are probably beginning to notice that obama is far more interested in government control and siphoning money into the hands of rich bankers than he is interested in blacks or any other ordinary citizen. there will be some serious broad-based rage to contend with.

i don't think there is any plan B for such a problem. i don't think the situation can be avoided for much longer.

That was about as fair and even-handed of a synopsis of the eligibility issue as I can remember hearing, as well as the roots of the controversy.

Well done. I think that's why the 4-part series of this thread are interesting -- they seem to chronicle the process as it unfolded, from the point of before President Obama was elected to present. Yes, it leans heavily toward the side that has questions about his eligibility; That is the right of the person compiling the report. After all, objective news died (my opinion) with Walter Cronkite.
