In 2011, President Obama released his birth documents, in response to the lingering allegations that he is not qualified to take office, due to a provision in the United States Constitution that only allows “natural born citizens” to be eligible for election as President of the United States.
While the U.S. Constitution requires the president to be a “natural-born citizen,” it fails to define the term. Scholarly works cited by the Founders defined it as a citizen at birth, born in the country to two citizens of the country, or merely the offspring of two citizens of the country.
President Obama was not born to two citizens of the United States, his father was not a citizen. Thus, birthplace is key when it comes to determining his eligibility for presidential office.
On Thursday, officials with the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office in Arizona presented a final report of a long investigation, involving experts from Europe, which concluded that “the overwhelming forensic evidence shows the posted document [Barack Obama’s birth certificate, posted on the official White House website] is nothing more than a “created” document – pieced together using another source document.”
A full video of the final investigation report presentation, which was aired live by Fox 10, is provided below.
WND reports on the details:
The birth certificate Obama displayed on the White House website as “proof positive” of his eligibility states he was born in Hawaii to an American mother and a Kenyan father.
Now, what has been described as the only official law enforcement investigation ever done into the Obama birth certificate, ordered by Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Maricopa County, Arizona, has concluded it is “not authentic.”
The sheriff’s video said there were nine images on the Obama birth certificate that appear to be identical to, and copied from, another birth certificate issued in Hawaii just days after his birth.
That certificate belongs to Johanna Ah’nee.
“The nine points of forgery between the Johanna Ah’nee birth certificate and Obama’s [long-form birth certificate] prove convincingly that the Ah’nee birth certificate was the source document from which the Obama LFBC was created.”
Jerome Corsi, Ph.D., WND senior staff writer and author of “Where’s the Birth Certificate?” was credited by sheriff’s officials with contributing to the investigation.
Corsi said Arpaio’s five-year effort “vindicates the extensive research WND conducted over years to bring this issue to the attention of the American public.”
“The inescapable conclusion is that the Hawaii Department of Health has not shown the American public the original 1961 birth records for Barack Obama, if they actually exist,” he said.
One of the experts who assisted in the investigation was Reed Hayes, a court-qualified handwriting and document examiner, who runs a business in Hawaii. He is on the board of the Scientific Association of Forensic Examiners and has been in business nearly 40 years.
Forlabs, an Italian company that specializes in extracting information from multimedia files, also produced the results.
“We had two experts from two countries in separate disciplines of forensics that came to one conclusion: Barack Obama’s long form birth certificate it not authentic,” the report said.
