Exclusive: A Letter to Press Secretary Robert Gibbs on the Obama Birth Certificate Question – Round Two

by JOHN D. HEMENWAY, ESQ June 19, 2009
Editor’s note: The following is a letter written by John D. Hemenway, Esq. that was sent to White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs via certified mail. Mr. Hemenway’s first letter to Mr. Gibbs can be seen here.
 
June 18, 2009
 
Mr. Robert Gibbs ;
White House Press Secretary                                                         
The White House               
Washington, D.C. 20001
 
(Certified-return receipt requested)
 
Dear Mr. Gibbs,
 
On June 11, during his nation-wide radio broadcast with an audience of an estimated twenty million listeners, Rush Limbaugh repeated at least six times that Barrack Obama and God have one thing in common: neither God nor Obama have a birth certificate! 
 
You have not responded to my letter of June 3, 2009, on this same subject, which enclosed a copy of my recent missive to Rupert Murdoch, a one-time school colleague of mine from Worcester College, University of Oxford. Those letters and Rush Limbaugh’s joke over Obama’s refusal to make public details concerning his birth all concerned Article II, Section 1 of the United States Constitution. That clause requires the President to be a “natural born” citizen. 
 
Therefore, anyone conversant with our Constitution or who reads any of these letters will be appalled at your disingenuous and high-handed response to the question posed by Lester Kinsolving of World Net Daily. You further displayed your ignorance of the Constitution by asserting about a week later that we are committed to being a democracy! The United States of America is a Republic. When asked what had been created during the secret drafting sessions by the founding fathers, Benjamin Franklin responded: “A Republic, madam, if you can keep it!” Actions by you, Barack Obama, irresponsible judges and various high officials are destroying that very Constitution. 
 
Frankly, Mr. Gibbs, you lied to Kinsolving on May 27, 2009, when you said that “…the president’s birth certificate [is] on the Internet.” You are deliberately misleading people to believe the Hawaiian Certification of Live Birth (COLB) is the same as a standard birth certificate with a hospital name and doctor’s signature. You are the spokesman for an administration that repeatedly emphasized that it would be transparent and open. By assisting in this major misrepresentation related to the “online” Certification of Live Birth (COLB), you personally could be accused of aiding criminal fraud.
 
The certificate of live birth (COLB) placed on the Internet by agents for Obama has been denounced as a forgery by authorities thoroughly familiar with documentation produced by Hawaii’s Department of Home Lands. Such a document would not be acceptable to obtain a drivers’ license in most states in America simply because it is not a birth certificate.
               
More recently, Hawaiian officials have joined White House officials in a cover-up of all records of any sort that might shed light on Obama’s actual birth place. It was just such outrageous cover-ups that caused President Richard Nixon’s resignation to avoid impeachment. Similar lies (under oath) led to President Clinton’s impeachment. Why are you covering up for Barack Hussein Obama (aka Soetoro)? Do you believe that it is your sworn duty as an American official to lie about such matters? 
 
The verbatim transcript of your blatant lies have been posted in several public places. It is reported that the entire White House press corps laughed, following your lead, when you rejected Les Kinsolvings legitimate and searching question. 
 
Lester Kinsolving’s intelligent question was hardly a laughing matter for you or the White House press corps. His question concerned the fundamental issue of whether Obama could ever meet the constitutional requirements for the office of President of the United States of America. The Presidency is the only office requiring the holder to be a natural born citizen.
 
In my letter to Rupert Murdoch, I noted that close to a million dollars has been spent to cover up Obama’s birth records and school records. After receipt of that letter, Murdoch’s Fox News covered the birth record story for the first time. Now Rush Limbaugh has picked up and reported (in his own unique way) this critical constitutional matter. It is evident to any person knowing the basic facts, that Obama is covering up something personal he wishes strongly to conceal.
 
A tape of his April 6, 2008 San Francisco fundraiser speech reveals that Obama traveled to Indonesia and Pakistan in 1981. At that time, the Department of State recommended against travel to that part of the world for U.S. citizens. What was the passport Obama used to facilitate such travel? Was it Indonesian – or was it British? Or did he travel as a stateless person? Exactly who are Obama’s parents?
 
The Kenyan Ambassador acknowledged at one time that Obama was born in Kenya; thus, he might be entitled to a British passport. Obama’s grandmother agreed on Obama’s birthplace and has stated that she was present for his birth in Kenya. Why does no hospital in Hawaii acknowlege that Obama was born on their premises? To attend school in Indonesia (which Obama did during his mother’s second marriage) one must be a citizen of Indonesia. How then, did Obama subsequently guarantee any claim to U.S. citizenship?
 
The public has the right to know such personal details about the occupant of the White House – as a matter of Constitutional law. As I said, and I will repeat again here, you lied to Les Kinsolving on May 27. When will the White House present credible evidence pertaining to details of Obama’s (Soetoro’s) birth that can be tested for basic honesty – that is, direct his legal defense team to release hard copies of all of his sealed records, demonstrating the era of transparency that he promised the American people? Millions of voting Americans want a prompt answer to this nagging question. They will insist that the Constitution of the United States be respected and scrupulously followed.
 
Sincerely yours,
 
John D. Hemenway
