Does anyone think this is related to 2012 apocalypse? (As in there isn't going to be a next presidential election, so they are f***ed if they don't kick him out now?) ThiehTK = Terry Koeckritz 17:23, 6 June 2009 (UTC)

Indonesian School[edit]

You guys do realize Inside Edition said something about this right? Something to check out.

I don't know much about Inside Edition's credibility though. (The name sounds like a tabloid).--67.5.232.125 (talk) 05:07, 14 December 2014 (UTC)

Old debunked stuff is old. First, it is adressed in the article. Secondly, adressing the video in question, according to the AP photo of the school registration page, Obama was listed as an Indonesian citizen, and as Barry Soetoro. However, note also that according to that same photo, Obama’s birthplace was listed as Hawaii. Thus, to the extent anyone wants to rely on this document as evidence of any alleged Indonesian adoption, its clear statement that Obama was born in Hawaii deserves the same weight. Also, this. 76.65.113.73 (talk) 21:50, 1 March 2015 (UTC)

Proof of citizenship[edit]

'Follow the money': becoming POTUS is expensive; if it was proved that BO was not a natural born inhabitant of the US (are 'test tube babies' and similar excluded from being President?) than there would be an awful lot of aggrieved contributors #and also# the tax people would be chasing them up as 'tax deductions for campaign contributions' would no longer be valid (and 'all that accumulated interest on late payment of fines').

If he had been born before Hawaii became a US state there might have been a stronger argument. 82.44.143.26 (talk) 16:33, 19 July 2016 (UTC)


Who started the rumor[edit]

According to snopes.com's investigation, the Obama citizenship denial started on right-wing blogs before it showed up in Clinton supporters' emails. Source: http://www.snopes.com/hillary-clinton-started-birther-movement/

Sorry if this is formatted poorly. Avid reader, rare wiki editor. 174.196.142.154 (talk) 23:33, 23 September 2016 (UTC)

Politico mentions an Andy Martin, frequent loser perennial candidate, as the "founder" of the conspiracy theory. The New York Times and Washington Post have stated this as well. Brainiac3397 (talk) 21:59, 12 January 2018 (UTC)

Update on this Article[edit]

So will this article be updated at all with the recent Sheriff Joe Arpaio findings? http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation-now/2016/12/15/sheriff-joe-arpaio-probe-proves-obama-birth-certificate-fake/95500958/ — Unsigned, by: 206.45.198.211 / talk / contribs

Thanks for that link! Joe Arpaio, jeez Louise... Facepalm.png Reverend Black Percy (talk) 00:16, 11 January 2017 (UTC)

Question[edit]

Why didn't the birthers try and push through some legislation to clarify the birth status of 'the President' in general?

And what would happen in the theoretical situation of 'adopted child X becomes President who then finds they were not born in the US'? Anna Livia (talk) 21:19, 26 August 2017 (UTC)

Obama states "the first sitting American president to come from Kenya"[edit]

how can this statement be denied when it came from Obama himself, I don't get it, this is crazy. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m26vHUl2HeQ — Unsigned, by: Dewbiegood‎ / talk / contribs

How come[edit]

… 'but nobody' mentions Trump's non-American born wives? Hypocrisy at the very least. Anna Livia (talk) 11:06, 4 June 2019 (UTC)
