Obama birth certificate - an old-time fish story
Color it red!

The authenticity of the birth certificate of one Barack Hussein Obama II has developed into a divisive issue — with all sides of the argument being right.

How could that be? Answer: Because it's a red herring.

The certificate presented as proof of Hawaiian birth is in all probability a composite, but he may very well have been born in Hawaii. And at one time, arguably, he could have been an American citizen, his birth mother having been one at the time of his entering this earthly existence. Having had a Kenyan father with another citizenship is a side issue, one that has never been legally settled.

The real issue of his legitimacy to serve constitutionally as President of the United States, however, is whether the man occupying the Oval Office today is Barry Soetoro — not Barack Hussein Obama II.

After Stanley Ann Dunham's divorce from Barack Hussein Obama I, when she married Indonesian citizen Lolo Soetoro, Lolo adopted the child. The boy then became his son, Barry Soetoro, and Barry attended public school in Indonesia.

Stanley Ann became a citizen of Indonesia, and her son did likewise when he was adopted around 1967 by his new father, Lolo Soetoro. Barry's school records listed him as Indonesian. Indonesia, a strict Muslim country, would also never pay for the schooling of an American citizen. If there is any evidence that they would bend Shariah law to do so, then my argument is over. End of story!

But, if Barry Soetoro listed Indonesian citizenship, as would seem to be the case when he started schooling at Occidental College in California, he was a foreign student — and he received a multitude of privileges because of that status.

The Dunhams were a shrewd group, and despite the inexplicable secrecy still covering the college and university records of Barry Soetoro, he was ostensibly getting many benefits from his status.

His reversion to being called Barack Obama seems to be seamless during the last year at Occidental. . He then moved on to Columbia University and Harvard Law School, where he obviously was being groomed for political ascendancy. Stories have been heard here in Massachusetts about the complicity of Harvard in covering sordid personal aspects of his life. All of this was necessary to nurture his image — and keep him on course.

The payback to Harvard has been much in evidence. As President, he has spearheaded his leftist agenda with Obamacare, making local personal appearances replete with political and monetary benefits for those connected to the Bay State Establishment. These involved a fund-raising visit to the home of the Harvard-trained hospital CEO Dr. Ralph de la Torre, a major supporter, as well as a campaign trip to Boston for the state's Attorney General., Martha Coakley.

This influence lent support to the transfer of the assets and eventual secularization of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Boston's Caritas Christi 6-hospital system to a new subsidiary of the New York venture capital fund, Cerberus Capital Management L.P. The controversial Cerberus once had a "feeder fund" for the notorious swindler Bernard L. Madoff, who currently is serving a 150-year Federal jail term for his crimes.

The sale/transfer of Caritas Christi was fraught with conflicts of interest, collusion, the uninvestigated clear possibility of fraud, and an audit revealing stark differences relative to the hospital system's finances. AG Coakley had greased the tracks for a smooth ride to approval right through the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court, while Federal officials steered clear throughout.

The political rise of the individual who now occupies the Oval Office, while still a citizen of Indonesia, has to represent the greatest scam ever perpetrated on the American public. He is surely the envy of Mr. Madoff.

Conservatives have raised many of the issues, but the mainstream media continue to avoid a thorough vetting of a man who promised the most transparent Presidency ever.

Until the media blinders are removed, that sneering, gummy grin will be flashing on the nation's TV screens whenever "The President of the United States of America" is viewed by its citizenry.

Like it or not, Barry Soetoro rules — until he's exposed!
