Look, if Hillary Clinton could not prove this during the 2007-2008 primary campaign with all her support/connections/money then no-one will ever be able to...
For example, neither of Obama's parents were citizens of the United States AT THE TIME OF HIS BIRTH. Therefore, Obama would have to have been born on U.S. soil in order to qualify as a 'natural born citizen' according to the qualifications specified in the Constitution.

Thus, the supposed 'neutrality' of Factcheck.org can safely be called into question.
That's been known for a long time.
Either way you play into their hands, and ignoring them is the best way.
Obama is not officially known as a communist, nor a Muslim. Just because he can pronounce names of locations where Muslims happen to live does not make someone a Muslim.
Sen. Barack Obama's longtime friend and spiritual adviser trashed the memory of a missing and presumed dead American teenage girl, according to church publications reviewed by WND.
Rev. Jeremiah Wright, the controversial minister of Obama's church in Chicago, cited the case of Natalee Holloway's disappearance in Aruba in complaining about what he sees as the media's bias in covering white victims of crime over black victims.
"Black women are being raped daily in Darfur, Sudan, in the Congo and in Sub-Saharan Africa. That doesn't make news," Wright said in the August 2005 edition of Trumpet Magazine, a publication of his Trinity United Church of Christ.
But, "One 18-year-old white girl from Alabama gets drunk on a graduation trip to Aruba, goes off and 'gives it up' while in a foreign country, and that stays in the news for months!" he added. "Maybe I am missing something!"
Obama says he is "proud" of Wright and values their 20-year friendship.
In 1991, when Obama joined the Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago, he pledged allegiance to something called the Black Value System, which is a code of non-Biblical ethics written by blacks, for blacks.
It encourages blacks to group together and separate from the larger American society by pooling their money, patronizing black-only businesses and backing black leaders. Such racial separatism is strangely at odds with the media's portrayal of Obama as a uniter who reaches across races.
The code also warns blacks to avoid the white "entrapment of black middle-classness," suggesting that settling for that kind of "competitive" success will rob blacks of their African identity and keep them "captive" to white culture.
He is not in any position to be in charge of the freedoms of America, that is laughable. There is a balance of powers between three branches (or there should be) blaming one person is ridiculous.
Can't help but notice that you continue to capitalize all proper nouns except for Muslim and Islam/-ic . No bias, right?
Definition of a Jizya: Under Islamic law, jizya or jizyah (Arabic: جزْية IPA: [ˈdʒɪzjæh]; Ottoman Turkish: cizye; both derived from Pahlavi and ultimately from Aramaic gaziyat ) is a per capita tax levied on a section of an Islamic state's non-Muslim citizens, who meet certain criteria. The tax is/was to be levied on able bodied adult males of military age and affording power, (but with specific exemptions, though these were discarded at various points in history).
From the point of view of the Muslim rulers, jizya was a material proof of the non-Muslims' acceptance of subjection to the state and its laws, "just as for the inhabitants it was a concrete continuation of the taxes paid to earlier regimes." In return, non-Muslim citizens were permitted to practice their faith, to enjoy a measure of communal autonomy, to be entitled to Muslim state's protection from outside aggression, to be exempted from military service and the Zakat as obligatory upon Muslim citizens.
YUSUFALI: Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.
PICKTHAL: Fight against such of those who have been given the Scripture as believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, and forbid not that which Allah hath forbidden by His messenger, and follow not the Religion of Truth, until they pay the tribute readily, being brought low.
SHAKIR: Fight those who do not believe in Allah, nor in the latter day, nor do they prohibit what Allah and His Messenger have prohibited, nor follow the religion of truth, out of those who have been given the Book, until they pay the tax in acknowledgment of superiority and they are in a state of subjection.
There is nothing wrong with speaking with leaders of other nations, especially if you don't agree with their policies. It takes courage to speak with your "enemies" and it takes cowardice to just ignore them until you bomb them.

This shows that anyone who is not islamic, is to be understood in the religion of islam to be a second class citizen, therefore worthy of exploitation, rape, and death if they, as 'infidels' do not comply to the demands that muslims will make of them. It even goes so far as to command muslims that it is their duty to oppress 'infidels' who refuse to convert. This, in my book, is a red flag showing that I am instantly repressed, and threatened, by muslims, who I have done nothing against to provoke.
