Here is a compilation of the statements, questions, and videos of the many high-profile personalities and leaders who have raised questions about Barack Obama's eligibility to occupy the Oval Office.
WND has reported on multiple legal challenges to Obama over his status as a "natural born citizen." The Constitution, Article 2, Section 1, states, "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."
Some of the lawsuits question whether Obama actually was born in Hawaii, as he insists. If he was born out of the country, Obama's American mother, the suits contend, was too young at the time of his birth to confer American citizenship to her son under the law at the time.
Other challenges have focused on Obama's citizenship through his father, a Kenyan subject to the jurisdiction of the United Kingdom at the time of his birth, thus making him a dual citizen. The cases contend the framers of the Constitution excluded dual citizens from qualifying as natural born.
Further, others question his citizenship by virtue of his attendance in Indonesian schools during his childhood and question on what passport did he travel to Pakistan three decades ago.
In April, Obama released an image of a "Certification of Live Birth" from the state of Hawaii, but since then, a multitude of experts in imaging, documents and computers have concluded it isn't real.
Here are the comments:
Four politically active women including former Saturday Night Live star Victoria Jackson, pro-life speaker and activist Jannique Stewart, editor and activist Jennie Jones and columnist Ann-Marie Murrell say the Obama birth Certification likely is a fake and they are alarmed that Americans are more disturbed by that possibility.
Members of PolitiChicks have joined celebrities and leaders including Donald Trump, Michael Savage and Pat Boone who have expressed concern about the possibility that Obama isn't qualified under the Constitution's requirements for a president - and wonder what could happen to the U.S. should that be recognized generally. gives then an open door to express their concerns.
Jackson, the SNL veteran, put her worries to a tune,
Stewart wondered openly why the issue is important, and the others explained that without a legitimacy to the presidency, there would be a question about whether any of his actions as "president" would be valid.
Or would it be treason, they wondered.
Jackson, a popular speaker for tea party rallies all across the country, said the bottom line is that there is an appearance of lying and false identities on the part of Obama.
"He's not an American. I don't care about a piece of paper. He's not an American because he doesn't' have American values," she said.
Mega-millionaire Donald Trump makes a return trip to the list of doubters.
He was asked by CNN's Piers Morgan this week whether he accepts what Obama has released as valid.
He was referring to the image of a Hawaiian "Certification of Live Birth" that was released by the White House in April, a document that imaging experts have stated on the record they doubt is real.
Trump, who in April claimed credit for creating the circumstances that prompted Obama to release the "Certification" image, was blunt.
"No, I don't necessarily accept it," he said.
"Do you believe he was probably born in America?" Morgan pressed.
"He might have been," Trump said.
"What does your gut tell you, because you are a smart guy," Morgan continued.
"My gut tells me couple things.
No. 1, you know, it took a long time to produce this Certification, and when it came out, as you know, check out the Internet, many people say it is not real, you know, that it's a forgery," Trump said. "They go over it, and lots of different things and lots of different reasons."
He continued, "The other thing is, nobody has been able to see, you know, the day of his birth, they had twins born, they had another one born. Nobody has been able to find any records that he was born in that hospital."
Just days earlier, Trump had been hit by Fox News' Greta Van Susteren on the same issue:
"I don't know just how it miraculously appeared … all of a sudden after years and years it was produced out of nowhere," he said. "If in fact it's not 100 percent, he's not supposed to be president of the country."
He pointed out it was Van Susteren's first question to him.
"People have real questions about the validity," he said.
Talk radio icon Michael Savage has labeled Barack Obama a "lifetime naked Marxist" and says he is troubled by the president's refusal "to show a valid birth Certification."
The comments came this week as Savage was blasting the advance toward socialist that is being pursued by the Obama administration in Washington.
Obama is "a man who refuses to show a valid birth Certification. A man who applies for college aid as a foreign student and then denies he's foreign. A man who has a Social Security Number from a state he's never even lived in," Savage said, citing three of the major disputes over Obama's eligibility to occupy the Oval Office, command US troops and set foreign policy.
His comments, with the references to Obama's deceptions regarding his eligibility, come at about the 8-minute mark:
Savage was citing evidences of Obama's socialist agenda:
"A man who orchestrates the sale of murder weapons to Mexican drug cartels. A man who can be held in contempt of court, in fact, was for illegally obstructing oil drilling in the Gulf of Mexico. A man who requires Americans to purchase a product from a third party (Obamacare), which is unconstitutional. A man who spent a trillion dollars on shovel-ready jobs and then admitted there was no such thing," he said.
Savage said Obama also "bypassed" Congress to implement the failed illegal alien amnesty by "executive fiat."
Obama is "a man who demanded an oil company hand over $20 billion to a political appointee, terminated America's ability to put a man in to space, and encouraged racial discrimination and intimidation at polling places and refused to let the Justice Department investigate the New Black Panther Party."
Longtime song and movie star and WND columnist Pat Boone is unconvinced by President Obama's release in April of an image of a Hawaii "Certification of Life Birth" in support of his claim to be eligible under the US Constitution to be president.
"I was in Kenya about a year and a half ago, and everyone there says, you know, your president was born here," he told an interview for the San Francisco Chronicle.
He described the image released on April 27 by the White House - an image that a multitude of experts in documents, computers and imaging have described as a fake - as a "photo-shopped fraud."
The publication confronted Boone at a GOP event in California recently.
He said he had heard the tape recording of Obama's grandmother claiming to have been present in Mombasa when Obama was born.
"Some say she didn't understand the question. One thing for sure," Boone said, "She understood to say I was there. Where it was, it wasn't Hawaii."
In an interview with HotAirPundit, Franklin Graham, heir apparent to the ministry legacy of his father, Rev. Billy Graham, said Barack Obama readily could resolve the questions over his birth Certification:
"I think our country is in big trouble," Graham said.
Asked specifically about Donald Trump's repeated questions about Obama's birth Certification and eligibility, Graham said, "The president I know has some issues to deal with here. He can solve this whole birth Certification issue pretty quickly.
"I was born in a hospital in Ashville, N.C., and I know that my records are there … I don't know why he can't produce that.
"It's an issue that looks like he could answer pretty quickly," he said.
Two-time GOP presidential candidate and longtime political analyst Pat Buchanan says Barack Obama should just show his birth Certification to put an end to questions over his eligibility to occupy the Oval Office.
His comments came in an interview on MSNBC, where he serves as a political analyst:
Buchanan said he agrees with Mitt Romney in that he believes Obama was born in Hawaii, and the newspapers probably were accurate in reporting his birth there in 1961.
However, he said, "I do agree with Donald Trump when he said, 'Why is Barack Obama toying with the American people? Why doesn't he just produce this and end this controversy.'"
Said Buchanan, a founder and editor of The American Conservative and columnist for WND, "I think it shows a real arrogance of power."
He also challenged the White House press corps to simply demand the answers, to which Bill Press, another WND columnist, responded that Obama's eligibility "is a total non-issue."
Press also claimed that "in 2007 the president produced his birth Certification. They put it online. … End of story."
However, what was posted online by the Obama campaign was a computer-generated image of a "Certification of Live Birth," a short-form document any Hawaii resident could have obtained at the time simply by declaring the birth had taken place in the state.
Melania Trump told CNN's Joy Behar that the dispute could be resolved easily if Obama would just "show it."
"I have a birth Certification from Slovenia," she said. "Do you want to see President Obama's birth Certification or not?"
Behar responded. "I've seen it. I've seen it," referring to the online image posted by the Obama campaign.
"It's not a birth Certification," Melania Trump pointed out.
"It's a 'Certification of live birth,'" Behar said.
Actually, at the time, it was a "Certification of Live Birth" that does not, in fact, prove a Hawaiian birth place.
