Electors were sworn to uphold the Presidential vote in the Electoral College last December 15th 2008. They first must know for sure that the candidate meets the Constitutional requirements for the office of President, beginning with being a natural born citizen.
That is what Philip J. Berg has asked the United States Supreme Court to verify. The Supreme Court has asked for a response from Senator Barack Obama, along with the Democratic National Committee and Federal Elections Commission. They have until December 1st to respond. Other cases have been filed asking for the same thing – a legal birth certificate proving place of birth for President-elect Barack Obama.
Obama says he is qualified. But Berg, multiple legal suits and a growing number of American citizens are saying: “Prove it.” This is a basic, vital, and Constitutional request.
Why won’t Obama answer such a simple request?
Exhibit A: The Grandmother’s tape
Barack Obama’s own grandmother said he was born in Kenya. While politicians are known for it, grandmothers seldom lie. It’s recorded on tape:
“I was in the delivery room in [Mombosa] Kenya, when he was born Aug. 4, 1961” – Sarah Obama, Obama’s paternal grandmother
Exhibit B: No Original Birth Certificate
Experts have called the Certification of Live Birth posted online a forgery. Berg reported “It’s clearly been altered,” which invalidates it, according to the document itself.
Exhibit C: Indonesian citizenship
Only Indonesian citizens could attend Indonesian schools at the time Barack Obama attended the Indonesian school where he was registered as Barry Soetoro. His citizenship was listed as Indonesian, his religion as Islam, and his father as Lolo Soetoro, M.A. There was also no dual citizenship at the time. If Obama was adopted by his Indonesian step-father, he would have forfeited any U.S. citizenship he may have had, just as when a child is adopted in America, he or she becomes an American.
Exhibit D: U.S. Law
In addition, according to U.S. law pertaining to births abroad, from “Dec. 24, 1952 to Nov. 13, 1986,” in order to register the child’s birth as a U.S. natural-born citizen at the time of Obama’s birth, he or she must be: 1. Born to two U.S. citizen parents; or, 2. If only one parent was a U.S. citizen at the time of the birth, that parent must have resided in the United States for at least 10 years, at least five of which must be after the age of 14.
Since Barack Obama’s father was not a U.S. citizen and Obama’s mother was only 18 at the time of his birth, she failed to meet legal requirements of U.S. residency for at least five years after the age of 14.
If we are willing to ignore the Constitutional requirements for the highest office in our land, what else are we willing to forgo? Is it the part about freedom of speech? Or is it Freedom of the press? Or is it Freedom of religion?
The United States Constitution
Article II, Section I includes these words:
“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; neither shall any person be eligible to that office who shall not have attained to the age of thirty five, and been fourteen Years a resident within the United States.”

Kenyan Ambassador to the United States, His Excellency Peter Ogengo, Admits Obama Born in Kenya
Kenyan Ambassador Peter Nicholas Rateng’ Oginga Ogego appears to be finding himself in hot water both in Washington and in Kenya. However, that hot water is not due to his on-air comments to Detroit’s WRIF 101 FM “Mike in the Morning” program regarding Barack Obama’s Kenyan birthplace. The hot water is due to Ambassador Ogego’s stinging criticism of Senator Barack Obama before Mr. Peter Oginga Ogego officially became Kenya’s Ambassador to the United States on September 5, 2006 and two years prior to Barack Obama’s apparent victory in the U.S. Presidential election.
Mr. Ogego’s criticism of Senator Obama was as follows according to the Kenyan Daily Nation newspaper:
“You deliberately, without real cause or reason, other than what appears to be to seek cheap publicity and inconsequential populism, chose to publicly attack the democratically elected Government of Kenya, in total disregard for the requisite protocol and acceptable methods to address the issues you raised, what with programmed appointments to meet Cabinet ministers and even the Head of State, since your visit was official.”
In 2006, speaking as a Kenyan citizen, Mr. Ogego was rightfully incensed at Barack Obama’s insertion of himself into Kenyan politics as well as Barack Obama’s uncalled for attack on the democratically elected Government of Kenya during an official visit to the country. This blatant interference in Kenyan politics occurred when Obama was in Kenya to campaign and provide financial support to his cousin, Raila Odinga, a Communist, prior to the violence that was deliberately set in motion by the Odinga camp when he lost the election.
During the radio program on November 22, 2008 on Detroit’s WRIF 101 FM “Mike in the Morning,” a decision was made to make a phone call to the Kenyan Embassy in Washington, D.C. During the course of the call, Mike and co-host Trudy were connected to the Ambassador’s office. After a short conversation with a secretary of the Ambassador, Peter Ogego picked up the phone.
Mike’s co-host asked the Ambassador, “President-elect Obama’s birthplace over in Kenya, is that going to be a national spot to go visit, where he was born?”
Ambassador Ogego responded, “It’s, um, already an attraction. His, his, uh, paternal grandmother is still alive…”
Mike’s co-host then interjects, “But his birthplace, they’ll put up a marker there?”
Ambassador Ogego responds, “It depends on the government, it’s already well known.”
Kenyan Ambassador Peter Ogego had just announced to the whole world on live radio that our President-elect, Barack Hussein Obama, was born in Kenya, his birthplace is already an attraction, and placing a marker is up to the Kenyan government. The location of his birthplace is already well known, intimating the location does not need anything further to distinguish it.
This admission is a confirmation of the multiple statements made by Obama’s paternal grandmother referenced by Ambassador Ogego, about Obama’s Kenyan birthplace.
Surely, Jeremiah 17: 9 is accurate when it says: “the heart [mind] is deceitful above all things and desperately wicked.” Obama is desperately trying to pull the wool over America’s eyes to his lack of being qualified to become President.
I Chronicles 7: 14 states that if we, as a nation, would repent of our evil ways and turn back to God, and seek forgiveness, that He would give it and heal our land. It would be wonderful, but I cannot see hardly anyone caring for our once great heritage any more.
