Obama Rumor Conclusively Debunked

Sorry to whiz in the conspiracyverse's corn flakes, but here's one anti-Obama rumor conclusively put to rest.

Now if we can just get other folks to drop their quixotic quests to target Obama over inane technicalities, we can more focus on dismantling him based upon things that actually matter, such as his character, his experience, his associations, and his radical political goals.

I don't care if he is an ex-Navy SEAL. He is still an ass.

It really is irrelevant, but I don't see how a rumor is debunked. If Soetoro adopted little Barack Obama, it would be called a step-parent adoption, the birth certificate would be changed through the courts and at the recorder's office and the step-father would be listed as the father in father block and the surname of the child would be changed. It happens every day in the U.S., in fact, my adopted daughter is a step-parent adoption and we were told in clear terms that once the new BC was issued, she would never again have any proof she was anyone else but the person listed therein. They even backdated age and employment to time of adopting parent to coincide with the time of orig. birth.

The only way to legally change that new name thru adoption would be another court order.

I don't see what the big deal is. Soetoro and his family seem to have welcomed little BO, unlike his own father who abandoned him and was a bigamist.

Not to question your honesty, but I find your email from Selective Service to be suspect because:

Do you REALLY think the Selective Service would provide information outside the FOIA via email?

I, personally, have corresponded with Selective Service many times via email and the response is always "a FOIA must be in writting and signed by the requester." see's FOIA page.

I am still waiting my FOIA request from Selective Service. This sounds like a fake to me. But since there are exemptions to FOIA releases, I doubt they will give it. For example, exemption:

"(b)(6) - records which if released, would result in clearly unwarranted invasion of personal privacy;"

That has been the excuse I have been given for not getting Obama's information.

But I am a little confused as Senator Obama claims that he was attending College in California (Occidental College) from 1979 until 1980 where he played basketball and was a high scorer. And Occidental college starts its fall semester in August so he was not home for the Summer. (basketball camp starts earlier).

There is a Daniel Amon in the Arlington, VA area:

Maybe a call to him will be informative.

If you provided Amon's government email address, that would help support your claim.

Pajamas is really, really stretching. Obama attended a madrassa or are we to believe schools with religious instruction in Asia are solely the province of Roman Catholics?

As far as his selective service registration record goes I'm sure its on the tips of everybody at the Kos Kiddies, but I haven't heard anyone who is the least bit interested.

Now what would be interesting is his SAT scores and who such a dullard managed to get into elite schools given his confessed lack of study. Given his wife's thesis I really would like to see if they scored above a carrot on the IQ scale.

Obama's selective service rating was 4RD. Or draft four people after Rosie O'Donnell.

Obama school records ?

"target Obama over inane technicalities",

Technical or criminal?

1. Barack Obama had Indonesian citizenship

2. Barack Obama had the legal name Barry Soetoro

3. Barack Obama was a Muslim, despite his “fight the smears” claim that he never has been. (see new story that we just posted on this topic).

In addition, it means that Barack Obama apparently lied to the Illinois Supreme Court when asked to provide former names, according to this Attorney’s Registration Record:

Read it all and for the dense it has photo's:

Of course the (D) excuses all crimes.

Stephen Coffman, keep up the good work! I agree, not impuning B. Owens honesty, but I'd like to know under what authority this info was released, since I was told the same thing regarding the requirement for a FOIA request. I'm wondering if this was a limited, prememptive release of info, perhaps authorized by Obama. Intent (as in birth certificate flap) may be to cover up some embarassing info (e.g., he registered under a different name, etc.)

Regarding the privacy issue, if the SSS hits you with that, there is an exception for notable public figures.
