55,000 petitioners to Obama - If you are eligible, show us the proof.


Washington, DC (Nov. 24, 2008) -- Over 55,000 people have signed a petition coordinated by WND (WorldNetDaily) founder and editor Joseph Farah that demands documentation of President-elect Barack Obama’s eligibility to hold the highest office in the U.S., not just assurances from party officials.

A report accompanying the petition posted on, the Internet’s leading independent news source, explains the many questions raised about Obama’s eligibility, from an apparently fabricated “Certification of Live Birth” posted online to questions about what nation’s passport he used during to travel to Pakistan.

Obama is still refusing to disclose to the American public something as innocent and as basic as his full, undoctored birth certificate to establish beyond any shadow of a doubt – a doubt that is growing daily – that he is a natural-born American citizen.

“Ironically, now that the election is over, the pressure is building,” notes Farah. “A few bold members of Congress are getting interested in demanding hearings on the birth certificate issue. The lawsuits are increasing. More pundits and activists are beginning to mobilize regarding this critical Constitutional issue.”

The petition, which is directed to the Electoral College, the FEC, Congress and the U.S. Supreme Court, can be viewed at Posted last Friday, it has already been signed by over 55,000 people. It reads as follows:

"Whereas, by requirement of the United States Constitution, Article 2, Section 1, no one can be sworn into office as president of the United States without being a natural born citizen;

"Whereas, there is sufficient controversy within the citizenry of the United States as to whether presidential election winner Barack Obama was actually born in Hawaii as he claims;

"Whereas, Barack Obama has refused repeated calls to release publicly his entire Hawaiian birth certificate, which would include the actual hospital that performed the delivery;

"Whereas, lawsuits filed in several states seeking only proof of the basic minimal standard of eligibility have been rebuffed;

"Whereas, Hawaii at the time of Obama’s birth allowed births that took place in foreign countries to be registered in Hawaii;

"Whereas, concerns that our government is not taking this constitutional question seriously will result in diminished confidence in our system of free and fair elections;

“We, the undersigned, assert our rights as citizens of the United States in demanding that the constitutional eligibility requirement be taken seriously and that any and all controlling legal authorities in this matter examine the complete birth certificate of Barack Obama, including the actual city and hospital of birth, and make that document available to the American people for inspection.”
