Fr. Malloy Mysteries...
I don't pay a lot of attention to the Birthers who claim Obama isn't a citizen - obviously the powers that be didn't care and certifed the election. It remains an interesting conspiracy theory - but is it more than that? I don't know. However, Fr. John Malloy has a provocative post pointing out a few major discrepencies regarding the President's birth certificate. Here they are:
1. 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?
2. The birth certificate that the White House released lists Obama's
birth as August 4,1961 & Lists Barack Hussein Obama as 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 birth. 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".
3. 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 "Kaui Keolani
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?
Why hasn't this been discussed in the major media ?
4. Perhaps a clue comes from Obama’s book on his father. He states
how proud he is of his father fighting in WW II. I’m not a math genius, so
I may need some help from you. Barack Obama’s “birth certificate” says
his father was 25 years old in 1961 when he was born. That should have
put his father’s date of birth approximately 1936—if my math holds
(Honest! I did that without a calculator!) Now we need a non-revised
history book—one that hasn’t been altered to satisfy the author’s goals—
to verify that WW II was basically between 1939 and 1945. Just how
many 3 year olds fight in wars? Even in the latest stages of WW II his
father wouldn’t have been more than 9. Does that mean that Mr. Obama
is a liar, or simply chooses to alter the facts to satisfy his imagination or political purposes (still qualifies as a “liar”)? - Taken from A Shepherd's Voice
I have a call in to Michele Bachmann to get to the bottom of this.
