White House Releases

Obama Birth Certificate

4/27/2011 6:28 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Donald Trump asked for it ... and now Donald Trump got it -- because the White House just released President Barack Obama's long-form birth certificate ... proving he was, in fact, born in Hawaii.

The document shows Obama's mother was 18 at the time she gave birth ... and his father was 25.

Obama directed his office to release the certificate because the Commander In Chief didn't believe the distraction was good for the country.

Obama held a news conference about the document -- and explained, "We’re not going to be able to solve our problems if we get distracted by sideshows and carnival barkers."

Of course, the conspiracy theorists will probably ask the obvious questions ... what took so long???? Is this document legit ... or a fake???

That's a PRETTY FRESH BIRTH CERTIFICATE. Looks like the paper it is printed on is BRAND NEW. Think how easy it would be to COUNTERFEIT a birth certificate these days.

Trump team in Hawaii needs to track the number in the upper right hand corner to the physical records in Hawaii.

Bottom line. If Obama was not American born, the Clintons would have dug that up when Hillary was competing for the Democratic nomination.

Do those of you with a sane mind and common sense realize how truly delusional the doubting, racist birthers sound??

No, Obama DID NOT spend millions to hide his birth certificate. That's just a lie they told you repeatedly on Fixed News. It didn't happen. Nope, did not. Obama, and McCain spent money on lawyers during the election, of course. But NO WHERE was money spent to hide his birth certificate.

But you racist birthers just keep on with the crazy. I find it entertaining to watch the delusional, teaba**ing loons destroy the Republican party. Good work!!

What is really sad...this world doesn't know. All that are plotting against our leader no matter who he is, God will deal with them. Do you all not see the signs of time. God is angry, so many evil people in this world trying to destroy our President. God said "I Bless those that bless you" "I curse those that curse you" BE CAREFUL PEOPLE!!! Leave this man alone!!

Why does everyone forget his mother is white? Oh, that's right it doesn't pull the same clout or political impact as being the first black president.

Wow my birth cert doesn't look that clean. I guess every state is different in Jersey you have a seal.

I think they need to also compare it to some other birth certificates in Hawaii around the same time in 1961 and see if the same types of nomenclature are used.

ie., Negro vs. African, see if the rubber stamps are the same, see if the typewriter striked characters are the same...all the things you would do in forensics of a counterfeit do***ent.

Hey Madge -

Why do your kids need a birth certificate to play youth soccer?

Mine play sports and I've never had to produce a birth certificate.

What's wrong with you and your kids that their are doubts about their citizenship? Were you all really born here?
Someone should start investigating you and your family.

It's sad so many people waste their time worrying about Obama being born in America. Some people need a job or some kind of life because this is just sad.

Questioning his bc is more racist than anything.

Native born and natural born are not the same. And the term natural born is what is stated in Article II, Section 1, Clause 5, United States Constitution. Native born does not require two parents who are citizens, natural born does. If Obama was born on American soil, he may be native born, but because his father was a British subject at the time of his birth, he is not natural born.

This brings us to the crux of the whole matter of Obama's eligibility to the office of president. Obama, himself, has admitted that he is not natural born; claiming that, at birth, he held dual citizenship. Natural born, as defined by Vattel's Law of Nations requires two American parents born on American soil. This is the definition used by the Founding Fathers. Those who claim that natural born has never been defined, do so for the purposes of obfuscating the issue. It was Thomas Jefferson, 1823, who stated,

"On every question of construction, carry ourselves back to the time when the Constitution was adopted, recollect the spirit manifested in the debates, and instead of trying what meaning may be squeezed out of the text, or invented against it conform to the probable one in which it was passed."


Let's see the back. When was it issued (dates and stamps), and has the government of Hawaii been lying and committing fraud?

If his father was a foreign born student, then he was on a non-immigrant student visa (8USC1101(a)(15)(F)(i)), under British consular jurisdiction, per 1952 British Treaty.

When did Barack H Obama Sr. naturalize?

If Barack H Obama II, was born in the Hawaii, then per (circa 1961 law) 8USC1401(a)(1), he would have been born a US citizen, and under consular jurisdiction of the 1952 British Treaty and the under jurisdiction of British Nationality Act of 1948, Part II(5)(1)(a) he was born a British Citizen, thus a dual-citizen, and not a natural born citizen, and not constitutionally eligible for the 2008 Presidential election.

If Barack H Obama Sr. did not naturalize before the birth, then Barack H Obama II, was a native born dual-citizen, not a natural born citizen.

This is not over. This is is a scandal. Our Constitution and nation need to be protected against a domestic enemy.

Why is the certification number is different than the COLB FactCheck and FighttheSmears displayed?
