A certification of birth document has surfaced placing the birth of Barack Obama in the Coast General Hospital in Mombasa, Kenya, not Hawaii as the Obama administration insists. In the last week, the corporate media has launched an especially vicious attack and dismissed the issue as a fabrication devised by “birthers” who are said to be racists and rightwing extremists.
The latest document was released by Orly Taitz, a California attorney who has filed a several lawsuits demanding proof of Barack Obama’s eligibility to serve as president. The Kenyan document lists Obama’s parents as Barack Hussein Obama and Stanley Ann Obama, formerly Stanley Ann Dunham. Although there is not a signature by a doctor, the document is signed by the deputy registrar of Coast Province, Joshua Simon Oduya.
The birth certificate is part of a federal lawsuit initiated by former presidential candidate and ambassador Alan Keyes, filed on August 1, 2009, in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California. Taitz’s motion requests the document be preserved from destruction, asks for permission to legally request documents from Kenya, and demands a subpoena for deposition from Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Last week, state officials in Hawaii said they checked and confirmed that Barack Obama was born in Hawaii and is a natural-born American citizen and therefore meets a key constitutional requirement for being president. Article 2, Section 1 of the Constitution states, “No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President.”
The Annenberg Political Factsheet claims to have examined the original document and says it is legitimate (see Born in the U.S.A., The truth about Obama’s birth certificate). “Recently FactCheck representatives got a chance to spend some time with the birth certificate, and we can attest to the fact that it is real and three-dimensional and resides at the Obama headquarters in Chicago. We can assure readers that the certificate does bear a raised seal, and that it’s stamped on the back by Hawaii state registrar Alvin T. Onaka.”
Annenberg is a less than credible source considering Obama was chairman of the Annenberg Challenge in Chicago. One of his cohorts in that position was none other than the terrorist Bill Ayers.
As World Net Daily reports today, there is a suspicious lack of documents on Obama, including “his kindergarten records, his Punahou school records, his Occidental College records, his Columbia University records, his Columbia thesis, his Harvard Law School records, his Harvard Law Review articles, his scholarly articles from the University of Chicago, his passport, his medical records, his files from his years as an Illinois state senator, his Illinois State Bar Association records, any baptism records, and his adoption records.”
Obama supporters and liberals are determined to shut down the “birther” movement. On Saturday, the liberal comedian Bill Maher said the “birthers” must be stopped. “This is not a case of Democrats vs. Republicans. It’s sentient beings vs. the Lizard People,” he said, dismissing the fact the Obama administration refuses to release the original document.
Appearing on the Alex Jones Show this afternoon, attorney and former deputy attorney general of Pennsylvania Philip J. Berg, who initially filed a complaint in federal district court on August 21, 2008, against then presidential nominee Senator Barack Obama, said the new document must be carefully examined to establish its validity.
Berg noted the document is not classified as a birth certificate but rather a registration of birth. The document contains conflicting dates and signatures. In addition, the birth registration purports to be an official document entered at the District Registry Office in Kenya on August 9, 1961. Kenya did not gain independence until December 12, 1963.
Alex said the document may indeed be a forgery intended to further discredit the movement to establish Barack Obama’s place of birth.
