Still the question of birth -- Mombassa or Bethlehem?
By Clenard Childress

Sixty-six percent of American citizens will celebrate Christmas this season as a religious holiday. It is the day of the year where the globe recognizes the birth of the Messiah, the child called Jesus who was born "away in a manger" in the town of Bethlehem. The place of the birth of the Messiah was extremely important due to the promise made by God, prophesied by Micah. This Old Testament Seer proclaimed the Christ child would be born in the town of Bethlehem. The Scribes and Chief Priest living at the time of the birth of Jesus Christ validated and confirmed the birth place of the Messiah, for when questioned by the ruling Roman prelate, Herod, who asked where is the King of the Jews to be born, they answered: "In Bethlehem in the land of Judah, for this is what the Prophet has written." Micah had heralded this divine word over 600 years before Christ would walk the earth. Jesus Christ, the Messiah, would be born in Bethlehem and if he were to be born in any other city, his birth there would have disqualified him from being the Messiah.

Radio talk show host, Rush Limbaugh, with tongue in cheek, has repeatedly heralded Barack Obama as the 'Messiah,' and last November, the American people elected him as their next president, but whereas Herod validated the city of the birth of Messiah Jesus 2,000 years ago, it would appear we have overlooked the validation of the birthplace of our 'Messiah' in 2008! The question of Obama's birth still lurks behind the fog of mainstream media obfuscation, and unbeknownst to many American citizens, law suits across the nation have been filed to make sure our president-elect is not an illegal alien. In Washington State, subpoenas have been filed and issued with some legal advisors stating this is arguably the strongest case of all against Obama.

Recently AOL polled 88,000 people asking them if they were concerned about Obama's citizenship. It turned out, 52% of those polled, believe America should be concerned about Obama's citizenship, 42% believe the concern has no merit, and 6% remain undecided. That an individual spends 800,000 tax payers' dollars to avoid having to give proof he possesses a document he has always claimed he has, is quite absurd, wouldn't you think! It would be like you and I paying the court 1,000 dollars in fines and doing 30 days in jail for driving without a license, when in fact, you possess a certified and current driver's license. This alone shows the 42% in the above mentioned poll would claim the concern has no merit, and probably also believe, there is no such thing as corrupt politicians ....

The irony of all of this continually amazes me. The most pro-abortion candidate in American history may be disqualified due to the origin of his birth. Some questioned the sums of money which came in from foreign lands; some his relationship with soon to be jailed, Tony Rezko; some pondered his friendship with home-grown 60s radical and terrorist, William Ayers; others wondered how he could have stayed in the church of the eccentric, Rev. Jeremiah Wright; and many were bewildered by his socialistic response to Joe The Plumber. And who, I ask, would have ever dreamed he could have gone head-to-head with the most notorious politicians of our times, the Clintons, and come out on top! None of these, among a host of other things, derailed the Obama Express. Barack Obama was elected president. But what now stands in the way? Where he was "Born Alive ....?"

Now, just days before an historic Presidential Inauguration, the place where he breathed his first breath as a child, is in question, and the outcome of that investigation will determine whether or not he has life as the 44th president of the United States of America. Was Barack "born alive" in America, or was he "born alive" in Mombassa, Kenya? If it is Mombassa, Kenya, he becomes a "Born Alive Victim," and it means the death of his presidency. He will not receive any political or legal assistance due to the fact the Constitution states you have to be a "natural born citizen."

Don't you find it profoundly interesting that logistics would determine Obama's life as president? Obama and his wife are supporters of partial birth abortion. The body of the baby is inside the womb and the head is inside the womb but if the head were to slip out, the child is supposed to be covered by the constitution and protected. When the head is still inside the womb, the child is not protected by law, so it is a matter of "logistics" that determines the life or death of the child. Oh, the irony of it all astounds me! Obama refused to 'certify' the birth of these children and denied them access by opposing legislation to protect them, strategizing with pro-abortionists to kill them. Where he would not certify their births, his own birth certificate may very well cause him to loose his certification and the benefits awarded to citizens of the United States of America nullifying his presidency ....

As it is for Obama, so it is for America — it is still the question of birth.
