Hunks of Junk
When I first started this blog I had a page with this same title. It was sabotaged and “disappeared”. The page had random bits of things I have saved, most of which I still have. I do not recall everything that had been stored under that page, but will begin to rebuild the page with all the stuff I’ve collected and run across during my travels thru the blogs.
I redact names to respect the privacy of the posters. This stuff will be in no particular order:

The oaths of Obama – he knew yet swore otherwise, TWICE at least
widow_hatingitEastlake, OHage: 60
—You can’t legally swear to the best of your knowledge that you
are eligible to be President when the SCOTUS last word on the issue
directly …calls such eligibility into doubt.
You can’t even do that with
a straight face let alone a sworn oath.
Even if the current SCOTUS were to one day hold that Obama is a
natural-born citizen despite his British/Kenyan birth through his
father (who was never a US citizen) that would not have been a holding
available to Obama at the time he swore he was eligible.
The states of Arizona and Virginia accepted as true the false
sworn statements by Obama and thereafter placed his name on the
ballots. He was then elected President.
The voters in Virginia and Arizona were directly defrauded by Obama’s false affirmations.
When Obama swore he was eligible, he lied.
He didn’t swear that he
might be eligible or that there was a good chance he would be found
eligible. He swore that he was – in fact – eligible.
affirmations under oath and penalty of perjury are false.
He could not
have been certain and he should not have sworn that he was.
of false swearing despite whatever definition of natural-born citizen
comes down the pike.
On December 13, 2007, Obama could not have been certain he was
eligible to be POTUS. He may have believed he could be held eligible
according to his own hopes and his own analysis of what the current
SCOTUS might say.
But such an analysis could be nothing more than an
The affirmations demanded that he swear he was – in
fact – eligible to be POTUS.
A statesman puts the safety and legal sanity of the nation ahead of
Obama reversed that call to honor and placed himself ahead of
The law questioned his eligibility but he swore under oath no
such question existed.
The proper thing for Obama to have done was raise the issue before
the American people prior to the election.
Perhaps he could have
accomplished this by bringing a law suit to determine whether he could
satisfy these affirmations without perjuring himself.
He did no such
He swore something was true when he knew the truth was in
doubt. Regardless of what SCOTUS might say about this issue in the
future, no future holding can change the facts as they existed on
December 13, 2007.
Obama has now been intellectually convicted of false swearing.
—By his own admission as stated on his website and on Factcheck.org, Obama has clearly stated:
“‘When Barack Obama Jr. was born on Aug. 4, 1961, in Honolulu,
Kenya was a British colony, still part of the United Kingdom’s
As a Kenyan native, Barack Obama Sr. was a British
subject whose citizenship status was governed by The British
Nationality Act of 1948.
That same act governed the status of Obama
1. Barack Obama Sr. was a British subject.
2. Barack Obama Sr. was governed by the British Nationality Act of 1948.
3. Barack Obama Jr. was born to a British subject.
4. Barack Obama Jr. was also governed by the British Nationality Act of 1948.
5. ‘[S]ubject to the complete jurisdiction thereof’ means ‘complete jurisdiction thereof,’ not owing allegiance to anybody else.
6. The authors of the 14th Amendment recognized citizenship by birth to those who were not subject to some other foreign power.
7. On Aug. 4, 1961, Barack Obama Sr. and Barack Obama Jr. were subject to another foreign power.
8. On Aug. 4, 1961, Barack Obama Jr. owed at least partial allegiance to another foreign power.
9. Barack Obama Jr. is not a natural born citizen by virtue of the 14th Amendment.
10. Barack Obama Jr. does not meet the Constitutional eligibility requirement to be natural born citizen.
You said “Obama is entitled to believe that he’s eligible”
Don’t you think that if he would really think he was eligible, that
he would have gladly show us all of his records and particularly his
long form Birth Certificate.?
I do not believe a minute that he
believes he was eligible… he studied Constitutional law… so he knows he
is not eligible.
[Ed. I believe he always knew his eligibility could be a
problematic issue, but it would be impossible for him to “know” for
sure whether he was eligible (assuming he was born in Hawaii) since no
court has ever ruled on the exact definition of the nbc clause.
I’ll tuck this tid-bit in here. Lets see if anyone finds it. I sent a mole to the DoH. My own trusted investigator asked to view all four types of index data. He was told by a supervisor that they only had the one type, the general birth index, and that the supervisor “knew nothing” about the other three. The “other” three are of course the Hawaiian Birth index, late/delayed index, and the foreign index. This person searched the General birth index and did not find obama there. He was stunned, so he triple checked, and maintains that there was no obama in that book that was given to him that day in the Honolulu Dept. of Health.
why he won’t show the BC, I believe he used it as a smokescreen to
cover the genuine British birth issue. I also believe that as late as
October 2008 he expected the plan was going to work and after the
election he may have even intended to show the BC, but my suit and
others came along and the issue got switched on him.
Now he could show
an original BC but it still wouldn’t solve his eligibility issue.
Furthermore, if he comes out with a real BC now, he proves me (and
others) to be very accurate about the situation.
he’s got himself in a
place he didn’t want. he can’t show the BC now even if he has it.]

Health department can
confirm individual’s death
Question: If a person elects not to have an obituary notice in any newspaper or printed matter, how can anyone learn about his death?
Answer: Contact the state Department of Health, which is the keeper of vital records for births, marriages, divorces and deaths that occur in Hawaii.
You can’t see or get a copy of a death certificate unless you can show a “direct and tangible interest” in the record, but you can verify the death through the department.
“Vital statistics records, such as death certificates, are subject to strict confidentiality requirements under state law,” said department spokeswoman Janice Okubo.
She cited Chapter 338-18 of the Hawaii Revised Statutes as prohibiting disclosure of such records, which are maintained by the department’s Office of Health Status Monitoring.
Specifically, Subsection (b) of the law says: “The Department of Health shall not permit inspection of public health records, or part thereof, unless it is satisfied that the applicant has a direct and tangible interest in the record.”
However, letters of verification “attesting to the existence of a requested record on file” with the department can be issued to the public, upon written application.
Such letters would verify the existence of a birth/death/marriage/divorce certificate, plus any other information provided for verification.
That means the department will not disclose any information on the certificate that is not known to the applicant. You can’t go fishing for information.
Instead, you would have to ask for verification of something specific, such as, “John Doe died on a certain date, at a certain place.”
The department will not do any search until an application is received and the fee — $5 per letter of verification — is paid.
“The reason for these procedures is to insure that the (department) provides accurate information,” as well as to have a written record of the information provided, Okubo said. “If someone were to call us and ask if ‘Terry Lee’ had died, we could reply yes (all 10 of them) or yes (back in 1862).”
Application forms for both copies of certificates or letters of verification can be downloaded from the Department of Health’s Web site: Hawaii.gov/doh/records/vital_records.html . Or, call 586-4539 or 586-4542 during regular business hours.
Meanwhile, to get actual copies of birth, marriage, divorce or death certificates, the department recognizes the following people as having a “direct and tangible” interest: the person the record is concerned with; the person’s spouse, parents, child, grandchild or other descendant; someone having a common ancestor with the person (sibling, grandparent, aunt/uncle or cousin); a legal guardian; a person or agency acting on behalf of the person; someone representing the person’s estate; someone whose right to obtain a copy of the record is established by court order; adoptive parents who have filed a petition for adoption and need to determine the death of the child’s natural or legal parents; someone who needs to determine the marital status of a former spouse for alimony; someone who needs to determine the death of a nonrelated co-owner of property purchased under a joint tenancy agreement; and someone who needs a death certificate to determine payments under a credit insurance policy.
It costs $10 for a copy, $4 for each additional copy of the same certificate. Additional fees are charged for requests made via the Internet.
Meanwhile, records of events that occurred at least 75 years prior — that is 1929 for this year — are available for inspection or copy to anyone — including private individuals — working on a genealogy project. No direct tie needs to be established.
However, if the records are less than 75 years old, then the person seeking to inspect a record or get a copy must show a direct and tangible interest in the record.
For recorded information, call the vital records information line, 586-4533.
