Challenge: Show Me the Document For Barack Obama Birth Certificate Legal Expenses

After I documented the multiple fabrications in the “Obama registered with an Indonesian Passport” stories, opponents of Barack Obama (most prominently directed here by a website fixated on racist jokes from out of a bad Deliverance knockoff) came out of the woodwork to claim that, by gum, Barack Obama must be hiding the truth about his foreign birth because he has, they say, spent a huge number of dollars in legal fees to keep his “real” birth certificate from being released. A few examples:

Ken writes:

If it is a lie and a right wing conspiracy, why is Obama allowing millions to be spent to hide the truth. The best way to stop a lie is with truth so why does Obama allows Soros and others to spend copius amounts of money to hide the truch.

IF IF IF OBAMA IS LEGITIMATE REGARDING HIS U.S BIRTH, THEY WHY WILL HE NOT RELEASE PROOF AND WHY HAS HE SPEND ALMOST A MILLION DOLLARS ON ATTORNEYS TO KEEP THIS QUIET???

Mike L writes:

It amuses me that Obama loves to release “documents” because he believes in full transparency (campaign lie #107), yet he spends $100,000’s to keep his real birth cert under lock and key

==============

to discern writes:

It appears that spending nearly $1 mil in legal fees to seal records of links to his real citizenship does raise the suspicions

And so on and so forth. You can find these sorts of claims all over the internet going on and on about Barack Obama spending so much money on legal fees to hide a birth certificate! But the funny thing is, I can’t find a single verifiable piece of documentation to show me any monetary amount spent by Barack Obama or his presidential campaign on legal fees for the purpose of suppressing the release of any birth certificate of his.

I happen to suspect that these claims are a load of bull without any verifiable source; my suspicion is fueled by the pretty solid case laid out by Factcheck that golly, Barack Obama’s birth certificate has been released. But hey, maybe I’m just a horrible sleuth and all, and maybe the folks surfing over here from the Niggermania website to leave their comments really do know what they’re talking about. Maybe there is a real source to show the amount of money that Barack Obama or his presidental campaign have spent on legal fees to suppress this “real” birth certificate. If that’s true, then it should be a very simple matter for someone to meet my challenge:

CHALLENGE: Show me the verifiable documents that reveal the dollar amount spent by Barack Obama or his campaign on legal expenses to prevent the release of Obama’s “real” birth certificate.

I don’t want you to give me a figure about how much the Obama campaign paid its lawyers in general. The claims are specific about legal expenses for birth certificate suppression; unless they’re fabricated claims, you should be able to find documentation for the particular legal expenses regarding birth certificate suppression.
I don’t want you to post a comment whining about how Barack Obama has hidden this figure from you, that nasty, nasty man. People are throwing around dollar amounts as if they really knew; if they DO really know what they’re talking about then you should be able to produce documentation.
I don’t want you to post a comment telling me about how nasty the “libs” are and about Obama’s “socialism.”
I don’t want you to post a comment calling me a hypocrite for not questioning Obama.
I don’t want you to post a comment going on about media bias.
I don’t want you to reiterate your claims without documentation.

All I want — ALL I want — is for you to show me the verifiable documents that reveal the dollar amount spent by Barack Obama or his campaign on legal expenses to prevent the release of Obama’s “real” birth certificate.

These claims are all over the comments here, and all over the Internet. Either someone should be able to produce the verifiable documentation for the claims…

… or those claims are full of crap.

What you’ll see in the comments section here will bear out one of these possibilities.

  • Jim

    Where is the flood of documentation to match the flood of outrage?

  • Obama Supporters Unite

    About legal fees:

    Just one pleading (and he has many pleadings with many cases all over) will take at least 60 man-hours to write, edit, print, file, post, and record.

    60 hours x $10 per hour = $600 . That is a low-cost waiter preparing the pleading (and thats just one pleading!)

    Why would somebody be stupid to spend $600 to show birth certificate costing $20???????

    Answer: You cannot give what you do not have!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! He has no US typewritten 1961 original birth certificate showing the doctor..

    You dont have to be a genius. you only need common sense!!!!!!!!

  • Barack Is President

    The Great Obama Swindle of 2008

    Raymond Kraft

    PART ONE
    OBAMA: THE ILLEGAL ALIEN

    I have become 100% convinced, to a moral certainty, beyond a reasonable doubt, that Barack Obama is not only not a “natural born citizen” as required by the U.S. Constitution to be president, but that he was not even born in the USA, not born in Hawaii, probably in Kenya, never naturalized. If he is elected, he will be the UnConstitutional President from the moment he takes the oath of office, the first president who is not a citizen of the United States.

    Why I am so sure?

    I was not convinced by the lawsuits filed by Philip Berg, Andy Martin, Jerome Corsi, and others seeking disclosure of Obama’s birth certificate. I was not convinced by the books and articles that now abound contesting Obama’s origins. I was convinced by the behavior of Barack Obama and his lawyers, asking the governor of Hawaii to seal Obama’s birth certificate so it could not be seen, by anyone, and by the behavior of Barack Obama and his lawyers, sealing his records at Columbia University and Harvard Law. Barack Obama is hiding himself from America. And he wants to be POTUS, and Commander-in-Chief.

    In the litigation business, one quickly learns that if somebody has a document that will be good for them, they can’t wait to give it to you. And if somebody has a document that will hurt them, they’ll be tap dancing faster than Richard Gere in Chicago to keep you from getting it.

    Obama is tap dancing.

    If I were Obama’s lawyers, and if there was a good, authentic, birth certificate that proved Barack Obama’s birth in Hawaii, I would tell him to instruct the Hawaiian Department of Health to provide a certified copy to every journalist who asked about it, to the Courts and plaintiffs in all the lawsuits, and to make the original available for inspection by any expert forensic document examiner any litigant or news agency engaged to examine the birth certificate for authenticity. I would tell him to come clean, and end the speculation. And I would tell him that the speculation could cost him the election.

    But that’s not what Obama’s lawyers are doing, they’re filling motions for summary judgment, not on the merits of the case, but on “technicalities,” at least in the Berg case, arguing that Citizens, voters, do not have standing to enforce the United States Constitution, and at least one judge, Richard Barclay Surrick, has agreed.

    But what Obama and his lawyers and the Democrat National Committee (DNC) are not doing is being open and honest with America. They’re tap dancing faster than Richard Gere in Chicago. So we are forced to this conclusion as a matter of logical necessity:

    1. If Barack Obama could produce a good birth certificate that would verify his status as a “natural born citizen,” he would. Failing to do so can only hurt him. Failing to do so can cost him the election.

    2. He hasn’t, and is doing all possible not to.

    3. Therefore, we can only conclude that he can’t, and that his birth certificate, if it exists at all, is either altered, forged, or shows him born outside the U.S. We have to conclude that producing his birth certificate, if he can, will prove he is not eligible to be president, not a natural born citizen, or not a citizen at all. We can only conclude that Obama and his lawyers know that producing his birth records will hurt him even more than not producing them.

    Now, I could be wrong. Barack Obama can prove me wrong by producing a good birth certificate. But he hasn’t. Will he? Can he?

    PART TWO
    NO “STANDING” TO SUE?

    In the case of Berg v. Obama, US Federal Judge Richard Barclay Surrick agreed with Obama’s lawyers and ruled that Berg, as a citizen, as a voter, has no “standing” to enforce the United States Constitution. I have read that other agencies have asserted that only another presidential candidate has standing to sue respecting the qualifications of a candidate, presumably because, arguendo, only another presidential candidate could be injured (lose an election) as a result of a non-qualified candidate on the ballot.

    This may be the most patently absurd, illogical, incomprehensible, astonishing, mind-boggling, and utterly stupid argument I have ever heard in my life – and from a Federal Judge, at that. And if I didn’t make myself perfectly clear, let me know and I’ll try again.

    Let’s do the analysis.

    1. The U.S. Constitution is a CONTRACT between The People, The States, and The United States, the federal government, that defines and limits the role of the federal government, and the rights of the States and The People, and, among other things, defines and limits the qualifications for president, i.e., that the president must be over the age of 35 years, and must be a natural born citizen.

    2. Any party to a CONTRACT has standing to enforce it. This is as basic as it gets. Contract Law 101. First week of law school stuff. And it seems that lawyers and judges all over the country have forgotten all about it. Also, the Constitution was intended to benefit all American citizens, We, The People, and in basic contract law the intended beneficiaries of a CONTRACT, i.e., us, also have standing to enforce it.

    3. If We, The People, do not have standing to enforce the CONTRACT, the U.S. Constitution, then it is unenforceable, and if it is unenforceable it is just a historic curiosity that means nothing. It’s just an old piece of parchment. But that was not the intent, and to give intent to the CONTRACT it must be enforceable by its parties and beneficiaries.

    4. We, The People, have standing under the First Amendment “to petition the government for redress of grievances.” If we have a grievance that a non-citizen, illegal alien, is running for president, I think the First Amendment unequivocally gives every American citizen standing to sue the government to redress that grievance and enforce the Constitution.

    I think Judge Richard Barclay Surrick is dead wrong, illogically wrong, irrationally wrong, legally wrong, I think his legal analysis of this issue, in legalese, stinks.

    PART THREE
    THE DUTY OF CONGRESS

    Article II, Section 1, requires that upon taking office the President of the United States shall take the following oath:

    “I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of the President of the
    United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution
    of the United States.”

    Article VI, Clause 3, requires that Senators and Representatives requires:

    “The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the members of the several state legislatures, and all executive and judicial officers, both of the United States and of the several states, shall be bound by oath or affirmation, to support this Constitution . . .”

    Members of Congress take this oath:

    “I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservations or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.”

    Having taken this oath, Sen. Barack Obama has violated his oath of office if he is refusing to disclose a birth certificate that proves his candidacy for president is unconstitutional, and I believe this is a mandatory basis for his impeachment.

    Having taken these oaths, the President, the Vice President (an executive officer of the United States), every member of the Senate and House, every member of every State legislature, and every executive and judicial officers of the United States and of each State, has a mandatory duty per Article VI Clause 3 of the US Constitution to “support and defend” the Constitution, and that would necessarily include taking whatever action is necessary to assure that no person who does not meet the Constitutional requirement of “natural born citizen” ever becomes President.

    And every Federal Judge, and every Justice of the Supreme Court, having taken this oath, also have a mandatory duty to “protect and defend” the Constitution by doing whatever is necessary to assure that no person who does not meet the Constitutional requirement of “natural born citizen” ever becomes President. Indeed, I believe that the Supreme Court has a sua sponte duty to resolve this dispute by ordering, on its own initiative, the immediate production of all of Obama’s birth records in order to confirm his place of birth, and prevent the election of an UnConstitutional President. So far, all Justices of the Supreme Court have failed this mandatory duty.

    So far, the President, the Vice President, every member of Congress, Democrats and Republicans alike, ever Federal Judge and Justice, every member of every State legislature, and every governor, have failed in this duty. They have all failed to fulfill their oaths of office. Every one. They must all demand that Sen. Barack Obama either (a) produce a good birth certificate proving his status as a “natural born citizen,” or (b) withdraw his candidacy before November 4th.

    All those who do not should be impeached for having failed their oath of office.

    PART FOUR
    THE GREATEST SWINDLE IN HISTORY

    If Senator Barack Hussein Obama cannot prove that he is a “natural born citizen,” then Obama, the Democrat National Committee, the Democrats in the Senate and House who support him, and others such as former president Bill Clinton who openly support him, have perpetrated the greatest swindle in history by falsely and fraudulently misrepresenting Obama as Constitutionally eligible to be president, concealing the truth about his place of birth, thereby inducing millions of Democrats by the fraud of concealment, by the lie of non-disclosure, by “trick and device,” to invest hundreds of millions of dollars in the Barack Obama presidential campaign to elect an UnConstitutional President.

    My opinion.

    Note, this is a fraud perpetrated by Sen. Barack Obama, the DNC, and hundreds of Democrats in Congress, on their own constituency, the Democrat voters of America. It is a fraud of the Democrats, by the Democrats, and perpetrated on the Democrats. And it has defrauded Democrats out of more than $600 million.

    According to their oaths of office, every Democrat member of Congress has an affirmative duty to assure that their presidential candidate is constitutionally qualified. As soon as questions about Obama’s birth arose, every Democrat in Congress had a mandatory duty to confirm his eligibility by demanding release of his birth records. But, they have not. Not to my knowledge. Instead, every Democrat in Congress is complicit in the cover up – the cover up – of Obama’s birth certificate, by failing to demand full disclosure to confirm his place of birth.

    In my opinion, unless Obama can produce a good birth certificate proving that he is a “natural born citizen,” then every Democrat member of Congress, every person managing Obama’s campaign, every officer and director of the Democrat National Commitee, and every person who has ever taken an oath to “support and defend” the Constitution and is now supporting an UnConstitutional candidate for president, has participated in a vast left-wing conspiracy to defraud millions of Democrats out of hundreds of millions of dollars to elect an UnConstitutional President.

    In my opinion, every one of these people, hundreds of them, should be prosecuted for fraud under the Racketeering Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO), for if Obama is not a “natural born citizen,” that is what the Democrat National Committee (DNC) has become. And every one of them should be tried, convicted, and sent to prison for decades, for this is a $600 billion swindle of America’s Democrats, a swindle perpetrated by the DNC and Barack Obama.

    Now, I could be wrong. I could be wrong about every opinion I have expressed here.

    Sen. Barack Hussein Obama can prove me wrong, quickly, simply, easily, by opening the doors of the hospitals and the Hawaiian Department of Health and showing us, showing America, showing the Democrats, all of his birth records.

    Unless and until he does, I will remain convinced that Barack Hussein Obama is not an American citizen.

      Well, boy, those sure are a lot of words. Word, word, wordy word word word.

      But you fail the challenge. You have not provided verifiable documentation of the legal fees spent by Barack Obama or his presidential campaign to suppress his “real” birth certificate.

      And of course, I recognize Family Security Matters. You’re some of the folks who have been posting Juval Aviv’s claptrap predictions every two years that, in weeks, JUST WEEKS from now, we’ll suffer a massive terrorist attack against six, seven, or eight American cities!

  • Bob S-K

    Silly Repper, you’re trying to flip the burden of proof.

  • Common Sense

    Jim, your question is a red herring.

    The real question is whether you can produce or link to a single verifiable piece of documentation to show me Obama’s place of birth?

    Unless, of course, FactCheck has somehow become a legal court of arbitration (or other constitutional entity) in the US. If that’s the case, I’ll accept a verfiable piece of documentation to that effect.

    A simple act of Congress, or perhaps a Supreme Court decision, or a Constitutional amendment will do. What with the media missing so many things these days, I may have missed FactCheck’s change in status.

    Come to think of it, that would be quite a story — a political organization becoming an official branch of the government….

    Now, what does that remind me of?

He is a lair, anti-US, a poor leader, a Marxist, an insufferable apologizer, intent on redistributing wealth on a scale never before seen, a nationalizer, did I say liar?
                As for his Nationalizing of banks and industry, he would make a good Hitler clone except of the Marxist part and apologizing. Hitler never apologized.

              • Jim

                You continue to toss up distracting name-calling chaff to cover up for the fact that you and you allies in this nonsense have utterly FAILED to meet the challenge. Not one shred of evidence to meet the challenge.

                Failed: silk undies….

  • Dr. FACTor

    Of course Barry Soetoro, alias Barrack Hussein Obama, isn’t a natural born American. This question came up prior to the election. Were he legally eligible to be president, Obama would have produced the needed document immediately and quashed any rumours surrounding his foreign nationality. Instead, (and with the total complicity of the liberal media, and BOTH political parties), Obama has ignored any requests to demonstrate his eligibility, thereby, admitting by omission that he should never have even been considered as a presidential candidate, much less received the oath of office.

    Barry Soetoro, alias Barrack Hussein Obama, by wilful omission, is a criminal – a felon, guilty of perpetrating fraud against the American people and the government of the United States. There simply is no other rational or logical conclusion that can be reached without his actual, “official” birth certificate. And any attempt to argue otherwise, “without said document in hand”, is merely empty emotional blather.

    recent campaign documents show $688,000 paymnet to law firm handling suits. google, is obama using illegal funds for lawsuits

    • Jim

      FAIL. Web search using that term results in no documented evidence on first or second page of legal expenses for birth certificate “coverup.” I stopped looking after the first two pages.

      But even if the $688,000 quote were documented to be true (and I’ll grant that it may), anyone else notice the little logical slide? $688,000 paid to the legal firm that handles task X does not equal $688,000 paid to accomplish task X.

      The comments posted to this challenge are one big ol’ heap of fail, indicating to me that this claim of massive legal spending to hide Barack Obama’s “real” birth certificate is yet another in a long line of fabrications without documented proof.

    Evidence of money spent to prevent appeals on qualification lawsuits

  • Silver Sumo

    In a report filed Wednesday, April 15, Obama for America, the group that collected over $850 million in campaign contributions for Obama, spent nearly $9.5 million in the first three months of this year, including included $688,000 in legal fees to the firm of Robert J Bauer. Bauer is the same attorney who send a letter to attorney John Hemenway threatening him with sanctions, including costs, expenses, and attorney’s fees, if he did not withdraw his appeal on Hollister v. Soetoro, No. 08-2254. citing the disgusting comments made by Judge Robertson that Obama’s eligibility had been “blogged, texted, twittered, and otherwise massaged by America’s vigilant citizenry.”

    Last year, the entire media crucified Sarah Palin and the Republican party for spending $150,000 on the VP candidate’s wardrobe which is less than the Obama Campaign spent on credit card fees in February and March of THIS YEAR. Yet, the most egregious spending of campaign finances has to be the $688k in legal fees to attorney Bob Bauer for abusing the court system and threatening citizens for exercizing their Constitution rights. As first published in World Net Daily, here is a copy of the letter sent by Obama’s attorney, Robert Bauer, to John Hememway.

    The American public is totally unaware of these violations of the Constitution and campaign financing laws, the misuse of campaign contributions and the failure to identify Obama’s donors, as well as the abuse of power by Obama and his legal bullies. The media refuse to cover these issues as they continue to enable a usurper, who knows that he is not a natural-born US citizen or even a naturalized citizen, to illgally occupy the office of President.

    We are witnessing massive fraud on a national level where Obama’s aplogists in the media and the American public are willing participants.

      FAIL

      Lots of words and harumphing linking to four web pages, but let me boil it down:

      1. $688,000 in legal fees to the firm of Robert J Bauer. This is verifiable by visiting the FEC website.
      2. NO mention of what the spending on legal fees is for. There are many possible purposes, as there are many legal considerations regarding and procedures in a campaign. A person buying a house spends $600-$1000 on attorney’s fees. Imagine the varying procedures for lawyers involved in verifying campaign finance, in observing documentation of expenses, ballot access procedures, yadda yadda yadda. How many people were employed by the Obama campaign? What are the typical legal expenses for a similarly sized organization with a comparable budget?
      3. It is a mere ASSUMPTION of Sumo’s, not backed up by a SINGLE verifiable document, that all of those $688,000 was spent quelching people looking for Barack Obama’s “real” birth certificate.

  • RGS

    Jim, It is you who fail. The question isn’t how much was spent on legal fees but rather how much effort was spent avoiding answering the challenge.

    • Jim

      Oh, I rather agree! Just not in the sense you mean.

    • Phil

      RGS I can only assume you have not been through law school, nor drafted any legal pleadings. 12(b) pre-answer motions are one of the simplest pleadings you can draft. They are largely cut and paste jobs that are tasked to first year associates. The effort would be minimal compared to the effort it would take to answer the challenge, which would involve discovery, countless expert witnesses to testify to authenticity, Hawaiian officials to establish chain of custody, and other needless costs associated with a trial.

    We think our colleagues at PolitiFact.com, who also dug into some of these loopy theories put it pretty well: “It is possible that Obama conspired his way to the precipice of the world… Read More’s biggest job, involving a vast network of people and government agencies over decades of lies. Anything’s possible. But step back and look at the overwhelming evidence to the contrary and your sense of what’s reasonable has to take over.”

    In fact, the conspiracy would need to be even deeper than our colleagues realized. In late July, a researcher looking
    to dig up dirt on Obama instead found a birth announcement that had been published in the Honolulu Advertiser on Sunday, Aug. 13, 1961:

      Who cares how much it costs, wouldn’t it just be easier and less time consuming and a lot less stress on the American citizenry to just release the damn document and prove once and for all if he is or he isn’t qualified?

      If you have nothing to hide, you hide nothing!

    “Jim, What I want to know is “who” is paying for his legal defense fees? I mean, isn’t it indisputable that folks are suing him in court?.. Berg, just being one of those suits. So, if it’s the “number” you want…. I’m not sure, but evidently there is “a number” out there and for me the question is “who” is paying for it?”

    Bingo! There it is. Since every lawsuit needs to be defended, we know that money is being spent to pay the lawyers (dare we believe they love Obama enough to work pro bono?)The two questions are… how much has actually been spent? (as has been pointed out- if it’s over 20 bucks, it’s reason enough to believe there’s damage in the long form certificate.) and …
    Who is paying for these defenses that must be argued?

    Some folks should learn the difference in a short form certificate (what has been put forth as the birth certificate) and a long form certificate that actually list the parents, has the attending doctor’s signature and most likely a footprint.
    The former was even issued to births that didn’t occur in Hawaii in 1961. The latter was exclusively for Hawaii births with a verifying physician.

  • JIm I understand your frustration but consider this, Obama durung the Presidential elections had his own Website. There were several attemos by zero to place Birth certificates so people could check the form, Last effort was a Birth Certificate of his sisters but super imposed with Barrys name etc. This was confirmed by experts. A few days later Obama removed the legit certificate off his site. Jim ,Explain the removal ?

      You’re just telling a story, Nillyc21. Document that what you say happened actually happened. Who are the “experts?” What is their “proof,” and where can it be found and verified?

  • Jim's a Douche

    Jim,
    You are a certifiable douche.
    FACT: Obama is being sued to produce a document he can not present.
    FACT: Lawyers aren’t free
    COMMON SENSE tells us ALL that the costs of these legal fees (paid for by us the taxpayer) would not be necessary if Barry produced said documents.

    Fail that douchebag.

    • Jim

      Well, it’s nice to know I can help someone feel clean.

      FAIL! JAD gets so upset when someone asks for actual, certifiable facts. The requirements of reality can be quite vexing.

      Six months and counting on this challenge. Nobody has produced the documentation for these claims.

      • Ripped

        3 years and counting and 0bumbler still hasn’t produced a long form birth certificate.

        If 0douchebag can seal all his records what makes an imbecile like you think he can’t keep his legal fees hidden.

        We all know scumbag lawyers don’t work for free!

        Quit being such an America hater Jim and start respecting the rule of law, you know 0butthole is deceiving you too!

        • Jim

          OGolly. The rule of law includes Hawaii law that stipulates the form Obama released is fully, legally valid. You’ve got no facts. All you have is the creative use of the letter O.

    I am with you Jim. How manyof these’birthers’ would want their birth certificates out there to anyone who asked? I keep mine in a safe. I showed it to get my drivers license, marriage license, and passport. No one else needs to see it!! Why should Obama give his out because people want to casue him grief???
