A Critical Look at the Obama Birther Conspiracy

Although I’m not fan of Obama, I’m hardly a conspiracy nut, either.  In fact, I usually lean towards debunking conspiracies, primarily on the basis of science.  For example, in these articles I debunk chemtrails, in large part because my time as a rated officer in the U.S. Air Force with thousands of hours over twenty years flying medium to heavy aircraft strongly leads me to believe the entire idea of chemtrails is absolute hogwash.  Similarly, I’m not exactly a fan of the blithering idiots who claim the World Trade Center and Pentagon attacks were faked, either.  Such crap is an insult to the memories of both the innocent victims as well as the heroic rescuers who gave their lives on September 11, 2001.

But as an amateur scientist, having studied engineering in college, and with three degrees, two in science, two graduate, and two summa cum laude, I’m not going look the other way when more than mere coincidence and a preponderance of the evidence points to a different conclusion than one claimed by the subject or reached by the laughably enthralled mainstream media who backed him at every turn.  Ok, at the graduate level there’s no such thing as “summa cum laude.”  However, top of my class, both times, with the highest GPA…  You get my drift.

Barack Hussein Obama II aka “Barry Soetoro” was born on August 4, 1861, supposedly in Honolulu, HI.   I find it strange those who maintain his Wikipedia entry feel the need to mention “two years after the territory was admitted to the Union as the 50th state.” Furthermore, the fact that his Wikipedia entry gushes with praise, rather than objectivity, such as, “Obama signed many landmark bills into law,” tells me those who maintain his page are hardly objective.

So, let’s head elsewhere for information, and by “information,” I’m referring to the peculiar information which appears to indicate something “not quite right” is going on.

First, he sealed his collegiate records.  Why would he do that?  Bad grades?  Who cares?  He smoked dope as part of “The Choom Gang” and was still elected.

Some say it’s because he was a foreign student.  Naturally, this popped up on the Internet several years back:

Well, lo and behold, Snopes was kind enough to thoroughly debunk that for us by providing a copy of the supposedly real student ID from which it was copied:

Or was it?  Did you see any video of Thomas Lugert testifying under sworn oath that his was the real ID?  The only piece of information that leads me to belief that Obama’s was faked is a tiny missing piece of crown beneath the “O” in Soetoro.  Snopes claims that “the pictured card couldn’t possibly have been a Columbia University student ID issued to Barack Obama in 1981, as the digital ID card format is uses wasn’t introduced at Columbia until 1996.”

Ok, because Snopes claims something, then it MUST be true, right?  Well, at least they provided a link to Columbia University’s archives.  But the argument that “it was digital” holds zero weight with me, as my university student ID which I received in 1981 had a bar code for registering for classes, checking into the infirmary, access to the gym, and checking out books at the library.  It was “digital,” although the photograph was still punched from a Polaroid and laminated to the card.  Still, it was digital.  In 1981.

Due to the presence of Columbia’s article on his card, along with many similar articles in their archives, I’m inclined to agree that Snopes’ argument about the student ID card is true.

Second, there’s the case of the missing birth certificate, which brings up the case of the allegedly faked birth certificate along with the case of the strange death of the Hawaiian official who certified Obama’s regenerated birth certificate copy as being official.

Let’s take these one at a time.

Why did it take several years for Obama to cough up a copy of his birth certificate?  All other U.S. citizens can obtain a certified copy of their original between a few days to a month (30 days is standard) to, at most, 3 months (90 days).  I’m not going to post a copy of the Hawaiian birth certificate he finally produced.

Ok, I changed my mind.  Here’s the copy you’ll currently find at obamawhitehouse.archives.gov.  And here you’ll find a long-winded explanation by Dan Pfeiffer, “Former Assistant to the President and Senior Advisor.”

The problem is, that’s not the same copy that was first floated back in 2011, the one that many said showed Photoshop artifacts galore.  And yet, countless websites picked up on problems with the first one, as well as this one.

And what of Hawaiian Health Director Helen Fuddy?  Even USA Today reports she was “the Hawaiian health official who verified the authenticity of President Obama’s birth certificate.”  It’s not the fact that she died, nor that she died in an airplane accident.  What strikes me as very strange is the fact that of the pilot and eight passengers, all survived without a scratch except for her.  Here’s the video of the ditching:

And here’s the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) official report on the accident, NTSB Identification : WPR14FA068. (click to enlarge)

Interestingly enough, Aviation Safety Network reports that Fuddy and one other passenger inadvertently used child life jackets, and that Fuddy’s, “the passenger who died before the first responders arrived was found wearing a partially inflated infant life vest.”

Now, I don’t know about you, but as an avid skin diver, S.C.U.B.A. diver, body-surfer, and certified sailboat skipper, I’ve spent plenty of time in salt water.  Even back when I was 6% body fat, I floated.  Everyone floats in salt water, as it’s significantly more dense than the human body.  All you need to do is relax.  Supposedly, her autopsy revealed that she suffered from a “hyperventilation-induced heart failure.”  Is that even a thing?  I don’t know, as I’m not a cardiologist.  I do, however, find it difficult to believe that anyone living in Hawaii would panic after finding themselves in the warm waters of Hawaii.

Now, perhaps all of these are indeed mere coincidences.  However, I’m not the only one who raises the “Huh?  Waitaminute…” flag.  I’m not the only one who sees this as possibly being just a little too convenient.  Sealed collegiate records.  Birth certificate missing for more than two years.  Tragic and quite rare manner of death for the only person who could have recanted at a later date…

Third, there’s the case of Obama’s social security number(s).  I’ll leave this as an exercise for the reader.  It only took me about ten seconds to found a number of mainstream news articles wondering about this, as well.

The Bottom Line:  All we care about is whether or not he was ever actually eligible to be a U.S. president, and if he wasn’t, then bringing to justice both him and each and every member of the Democrat National Convention/Party who played any role in selecting, grooming, and supporting him, as well as hiding his records.

I’m not saying she was silenced.  I am saying that given the rather long odds against these being coincidences, as well as the Democrat Party’s rather length history of lying, cheating, stealing, manipulation, and other underhanded techniques, most recently with the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation (WHO gave passes to all those rabble-rousers, again?), then I certainly cannot put it past them.  No sane, rational human being ever could.
