Dear Mr. Obama:
Representing thousands of responsible American citizens
who have also taken an oath to defend the Constitution of
the United States of America from all enemies foreign and
domestic, I am duty bound to call on you to remedy an
apparent violation of the Constitution.
Compelling evidence supports the claim that you are barred
from holding the Office of President by the “natural born
citizen” clause of the U.S. Constitution. For instance:
Your father was a Kenyan citizen at the time of your
birth and your mother was 18.
Legal affidavits state you were born in Kenya.
Your grandmother is recorded on tape saying she attended
your birth in Kenya.
Hawaii Dept of Health will not confirm your assertion
that you were born in Hawaii.
You have posted an unsigned, computer-generated
birth form that was created in 2007, a form that lacks
vital information found on an original, hand signed
Certificate of Live Birth, such as hospital address,
signature of attending physician and age of mother.
U.S. Law in 1961 denied U.S. citizenship to any child
born in Kenya if the father was Kenyan and the mother
was not yet 19 years of age.
In 1965, your mother legally relinquished whatever
Kenyan or U.S. citizenship she and you had by marrying
an Indonesian and becoming a naturalized Indonesian
You have repeatedly refused to provide evidence of your
eligibility when challenged to do so in a number of recent
lawsuits. Instead, you have been successful in having
judges declare that they are powerless to order you to
prove your eligibility to assume the Office of President.
For instance, the judge in Pennsylvania ruled the
challenger had no standing to question your eligibility
because his harm would be no different from the harm to be
suffered by all other American citizens if you, as an
ineligible person were to assume the Presidency. The judge
in Hawaii actually said it would be an invasion of your
privacy for him to order access to your original birth
certificate in order to prove your
eligibility to hold the Office of President.
Before you can legitimately exercise any of the powers of
the President you must meet all the criteria for
eligibility established by the Constitution. You are under
a moral, legal, and fiduciary duty to proffer such
evidence. Should you assume the office as anyone but a
bona fide natural born citizen of the United States
not relinquished that citizenship, you would be inviting a
national crisis that would undermine the domestic peace
and stability of the Nation. For example:
always be viewed by many Americans as a poseur - a
usurper, you would be unable to take the required
“Oath or Affirmation” on January 20 without committing
the crime of perjury or false swearing, for being
ineligible you cannot faithfully execute the Office of
the President of the United States.
be entitled to no obedience whatsoever from the People.
forces would be under no legal obligation to remain
obedient to you.
civilian in the Executive Branch would be required to
obey any of your proclamations, executive orders or
directives, as such orders would be legally void.
appointments of Ambassadors and Judges to the Supreme
Court would be void no matter what subsequent actions
the Senate might take.
would not be able to pass new laws because it would not
be able to acquire the signature of a bona fide
usurper, Congress would be unable to remove
you from the Office of the President on Impeachment,
inviting certain political chaos including a potential
for armed conflicts within the General Government or
among the States and the People to effect the removal of
such a usurper.
In consideration of the escalating constitutional crisis
brought on by the total lack of evidence needed to
conclusively establish your eligibility, I am compelled to
lodge a First Amendment Petition for a Redress of this
With all due respect, I ask that you immediately direct
the appropriate Hawaiian officials to allow access to the
vault copy of your birth certificate by our forensic
scientists on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, December 5, 6
and 7, 2008.
In addition, I ask that you to arrange to have the
following documentary evidence delivered to the National
Press Club by 10 am on December 8, 2008.
a certified copy of your “vault” (original long version)
certified copies of all reissued and sealed birth
certificates in the names Barack Hussein Obama, Barry
Soetoro, Barry Obama, Barack Dunham and Barry Dunham.
a certified copy of your Certification of Citizenship.
a certified copy of your Oath of Allegiance taken upon
age of maturity.
certified copies of your admission forms for Occidental
College, Columbia University and Harvard Law School.
certified copies of any court orders or legal documents
changing your name from Barry Soetoro.

whole people by its example. Crime is contagious. If the
government becomes a lawbreaker, it breeds contempt for
law; it invites every man to become a law unto himself; it
