Good luck to any adoptee in the future running for President…

04 Jan

First issue of course is very few adoptees could provide their long-form original birth certificate.  If you are one of the lucky ones, the next issue is proving you are a natural-born citizen, which brings us to the next obstacle, which is how many of our OBC’s actually list our fathers.  And even if we are one of the lucky ones to have our OBC as well as the father listed, the next obstacle would be proving the birth place of both parents we don’t know, unless we have conducted a successful search and contact was welcome.

But of course no one gives a damn that our heritage is hidden from us, shrouded in secrecy, and covered up with lies.  Everyone else’s feelings (AP’s and BP’s) must be considered first before us mere adoptees – we should just all be grateful we weren’t aborted or left to rot in an orphanage…my snark for the day.

From Huffington Post

A group of New Hampshire lawmakers asked the state attorney general’s office Tuesday to investigate whether President Barack Obama meets the eligibility requirements to appear on the state’s ballot, after their previous attempt to remove his name from the ballot was rejected in November.

Republican state Reps. Laurence Rappaport and Carol and Lucien Vita, say that Obama is not a natural-born citizen because his father was Kenyan. “This is not a birther issue, not a consideration of where Mr. Obama was born,” Rappaport said, according to the New Hampshire Union Leader. “Our concern is only if he is a natural-born citizen.”

The Congressional Research Service wrote in 2011, “There is no provision in the Constitution and no controlling American case law to support a contention that the citizenship of one’s parents governs the eligibility of a native born U.S. citizen to be president.”

Obama was born in Honolulu, Hawaii in 1961. The White House released the president’s long-form birth certificate in April after his campaign released a scanned copy. Some, however, refuse to believe the veracity of the document.

The attorney general’s office doesn’t plan to respond. “There’s no request in it,” said Associate Attorney General Richard Head, according to the Concord Monitor. “I honestly can’t figure it out.”

New Hampshire Democratic Party Chairman Ray Buckley said it showed how “crazy town” has taken over the statehouse.

The New Hampshire Ballot Law Commission rejected an effort in November led by the group’s attorney, “birther queen” Orly Taitz, to remove Obama’s name from the ballot. After the commission unanimously rejected the effort, members in the crowd shouted “Traitors!” and “Shame on you!”

Assistant Attorney General Matt Mavrogeorge and Assistant Secretary of State Karen Ladd locked themselves in an office and called authorities because they feared for their safety, saying that crowd members were banging at the door and yelling. The state attorney general has asked state police to investigate the incident.

    Mom – never thought of that…good on you!

    Jennifer – they will never let that go until a “white” person is in office and then – not a peep. Racism pure and simple…no matter how many “friends” they claim to have who are black.

      He wasn’t legally adopted – he went to court as a teenager to change his last name to Clinton. He still has access to his original birth certificate as there was no adoption so no amended birth certificate or sealed file. He was named after his father

        I thought some of the “justification” for the brouhaha over President Obama’s birth certificate was because he was also adopted by his step-father…so he had a second birth certificate, created later due to the process. I might be mistaken, but if I am correct, it would be amusing (to me anyway), since the folks who holler about it the loudest also tend to be “pro-adoption”. It would clearly indicate complete ignorance of the process.
