GOP Lawmaker's Bill Would Require Birth Certificate Of Presidential Candidates On File For Ballot Placement

Austin - A GOP State Representative from Tyler has introduced a bill that would require a Presidential candidate to file a copy of a birth certificate with the Secretary of State in order to be placed on the ballot in Texas.

The proposed bill, HB 295, which was pre-filed by Representative Leo Berman, is one of four similar measures reported pending in state houses in Pennsylvania, Georgia, Texas and Arizona.

“Birthers,” who insist that President Barack Hussein Obama is not a natural-born citizen of the U.S. as required by the Constitution, hope the law will make an end run around numerous attempts to disqualify him from serving in the Oval Office through litigation in the the federal courts.

So far, none of the lawsuits filed have been granted discovery status in the courts, so the President has not been required to furnish any further documentation of the whereabouts and circumstances of his birth.

Mr. Obama has furnished a “certification of live birth” document printed on acid-free paper that is printed with 3-D designs considered impossible to forge or alter through xerography. It is a certified record of the information that was recorded on his birth date by the Registrar of Live Birth at Honolulu.

It plainly states he was born in 1961 to his parents of record at Honolulu, Hawaii, the 50th state of the union, at a certain time of the day.

This form of birth certificate is the only one accepted by state driver's license bureaus, the Department of Defense, the U.S. Department of State Passport Office, and many other bureaucracies which require proof of citizenship status for various legal reasons.

Previous forms are easy to forge or alter and over a period of time, the State Departments of Health were required to centralize, computerize and standardize birth records on forms of this type.

The birth records are stored on computer databases in vaults fire-protected by Halon extinguisher systems, an ionic process that attacks fire at an atomic level and prevents further ignition without mutilating or destroying computer files or papers.

Similar systems are used in food preparation areas and in vaults where valuable furs or works of art are stored.

Most bureaucracies no longer accept certified copies of birth certificates issued by city or county bureaus of vital statistics or from hospitals or clinics as other than adjunctive or secondary proof of birth certification.

Several self-proclaimed experts have declared Mr. Obama's certification of live birth a forgery, but their declarations were later disproven. In one case, a person who produced what he purported to be a Kenyan birth certificate was discredited when experts determined the document was a forgery.

Mr. Berman's proposed legislation would require that “The secretary of state may not certify the name of a candidate for president or vice president unless the candidate has presented the candidate's original birth certificate indicating that the person is a natural born United States citizen.”

Tens of thousands of concerned citizens have signed a petition circulated by World Net Daily CEO and founder Joseph Farah questioning the adequacy of the documentation provided by Mr. Obama's staff in regards to his nativity.

Mr. Farah has published numerous books and pamphlets, as well as many articles on the subject, including speculation that Mr. Obama attended many schools, colleges and universities on scholarships reserved for foreign students and disallowed to native Americans.

He has arranged many billboards to be printed and displayed nationwide that read “Where's the birth certificate?”

President Obama has so far refused to produce any further documentation. He insists that he has complied with the requirements outlined in Article 2, Section 1 of the U.S. Constitution.

“No person except a natural-born citizen or a citizen of the United States, at the time of the adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the office of the President; neither shall any person be eligible to that office who shall not have attained the Age of thirty five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States...the same shall devolve on the Vice President...”

This document surfaced in late July and was filed with a U.S. District Court by attorney Orly Taitz, who demanded it be authenticated. The judge held that the plaintiff had no standing to bring suit.


  1. From the article -- "President Obama has so far refused to produce any further documentation."--

    The Hawaiian Certification of Live Birth (COLB) foisted upon a confused American public by Mr. Obama neither identifies nor bears a signature of the attending doctor and it does not even name the birth hospital. That internet image has already been changed 4 times and it does not give the date 'Accepted' as it should, but only the date 'Filed'. Recent, specialized computer analysis of the ‘original’ COLB displayed on DailyKOS shows that there is no indication of a Serial Number present on the layer beneath the black 'redact panel', indicating forgery of the document.

    Barack Obama was born August 4, 1961 at the Coast Province General Hospital in Mombasa, Kenya. A high resolution copy of his Kenyan birth certificate is available for free download at
