Birth Certificates In a Historical Context
08/24/2012 45 Comments
Today Romney was in his home state and said that no one had asked him for his birth certificate. That quip caused the lefties some heart pounding palpitations. They pointed out that Obama has a birth certificate which he has shared with the press. Yes, he did. However, that birth certificate raises some interesting questions. No I am not talking about the technical PDF problems that indicate it was a fraud, which have been discussed before, I am talking about those questions that any history buff might ask:
- Back in 1961 people of color were called ‘Negroes.’ So how can the
Obama ‘birth certificate’ state he is ‘African-American’ when the term
wasn’t even used at that time? This term not widely used until the late 1980s. Details HERE.
- The birth certificate that the White House released lists Obama’s
birth as August 4, 1961. It indicates that Barack Hussein Obama was
his father. No big deal, right? At the time of Obama’s birth, it also
shows that his father is aged 25 years old, and that Obama’s father
was born in ” Kenya, East Africa “. This wouldn’t seem like anything
of concern, except the fact that Kenya did not even exist until 1963,
two whole years after Obama’s birth, and 27 years after his father’s
How could Obama’s father have been born in a country that did not yet
exist? Up and until Kenya was formed in 1963, it was known as
the ” British East Africa Protectorate”. More details HERE.
- On the birth certificate released by the White House, the listed
place of birth is “Kapi’olani Maternity & Gynecological Hospital”.
This cannot be, because the hospital(s) in question in 1961 were
called “KauiKeolani Children’s Hospital” and “Kapi’olani Maternity
Home”, respectively. The name did not change to Kapi’olani Maternity &
Gynecological Hospital until 1978, when these two hospitals merged.
How can this particular name of the hospital be on a birth certificate
dated 1961 if this name had not yet been applied to it until 1978? More details HERE.
Maybe some of our local lefties have answers for these questions. I have do not have any problems with the idea that Obama was born in the US, my issue are who were his real parents and why was it necessary to create a fake birth certificate?
