Can we please stop the “is he or isn’t he” madness now?
Let it be known, from a PUMA herself:
Hi, I’ve talked to the Department of Vital Records and the Honolulu Advertiser.In 1961, the hospitals would take their new birth certificates to Vital Records. At the end of the week, Vital Records would post a sheet that for the news paper to pick up that contained births, deaths, marriages and divorces. The Advertiser routinely printed this information in their Sunday edition. This is not a paid announcement that his grandmother could arrange. This is information that comes from Vital Records – we know this because this particular section reflects those records. They didn’t have a provision for paid, one sentence announcement that would be included in the Vital Records. At the time, if a child was born outside a hospital, the family would have 30 days to apply for a birth certificate and Vital Records would expect to see prenatal care records, or pediatrician records of the first check up, etc. They’d also want the notarized statement from the mid-wife. Of course, they can apply later but that would noted as a different kind of birth certificate. I think TD has already addressed that. This information was received by Vital Records the first week of his birth = that suggests the hospital.
Next, the announcement is from Sunday, August 13th and Obama was born on Friday, August 4th. Hospitals usually don’t take birth certificate information the first couple days to avoid changes. So it was likely filled out on the 4th or so, as hospital stays were usually 3 – 5 days at the time. Lastly, having worked in a newborn nursery in college, hospitals don’t ask for documentation. If mom says she’s married, that’s what they write. They have no authority to question her statement.
In Honolulu at the time, paid birth announcements weren’t in vogue. Frequently families would post one year announcements that included pictures from the party, etc. I haven’t checked to see if that exists.
I hope that finishes clearing this up.
You can see how they begin to turn on her …
Now PUMAS ARE STILL saying this is not enough. They are trying to find loopholes within their loopholes!
“what if this he became an Indonesian citizen?”
This generally make US a unsafe city, and if you have gun in that city we advise you to use biometric gun safe for your home.
It is highly unlikely that Obama had Indonesian citizenship. Children born to Indonesian women with foreign fathers were not granted Indonesian citizenship up until last year (I know of which I speak), so a US born step child of an Indonesian man would hardly be granted citizenship.
Furthermore you cannot hold dual citizenship in Indonesia, you’re either Indonesian or foreign, if Obama had got Indonesian citizenship then he would have had to renounce his US citizenship something which it is fairly obvious he has not done.
So what? What now?
“the COLB was a waste of time, a diversion, something that makes Obama’s critics look stupid? “
