Since the above video is what people will be talking about today, I’ll go with the flow and give some further analysis that’s been provided in the past by Barrister Michael Shrimpton, the man in the video. h/t Gordo
Back in 2012, Shrimpton took on the issue of Obama’s true place of birth: [emphasis added]
The competing theories may be shortly stated. President Obama and the Democratic Party claim that he was born in Honolulu in the State of Hawai’i on August 4th 1961. … Two different hospitals were put forward at different times in the 2008 election (I have been tracking this issue since Obama first came on my radar, as a state senator in Illinois, about ten years ago). The President and the Democrats have now settled on the Kapio’lani Maternity Hospital in Honolulu. Mainstream media commentators like Anne Applebaum are seemingly unaware that two different US birthplaces have been put forward by the President and his supporters. They tend to take the latest White House position as fact.
The Kenya theory, supported by many Republicans, a broad swathe of the international intelligence community (behind the scenes) and … Donald Trump, asserts that the President was born in or near Mombasa in what is now Kenya. Within this group there are five main sub-groups – those who say that the date of birth is correct but not the place, those who put the birth in 1960, those who say that the claimed maternal relationship is true but not the paternal relationship, those who put it the other way round and those who accept the claimed parentage but not place of birth. …
The CIA’s true position, supported I am told by a DNA test, is that the claimed paternity is correct but not maternity. …
CIA had the DNA test done (I am told they used wine and water glasses, with the DNA swabs verified by fingerprints). Homeland Security are said to agree with the CIA’s internal assessment. They of course have access to the immigration and passport records, which have never been disclosed publicly …
The Mossad, DGSE, BND, SVR, MI5 and MI6 go with Mombasa, …
MI5 have a file because the colonial internal security files came over from Nairobi in 1963. Since Obama’s father and grandfather were both linked to the Mau-Mau terrorist organization they were very properly made the subjects of intelligence and police surveillance.
Shrimpton continues with interesting insider perspective on other issues, such as the two allegedly bogus birth certificates produced by Obama’s people in an attempt to silence questions. Much of what he points out has been pointed out here and also at many other blogs and websites for years. Shrimpton writes,
It is a matter entirely for them but I see no reason why the Electors could not ask for evidence of Barack Obama’s eligibility. That applies to all candidates of all races from all parties by the way.
In fact, a new poll shows that 70% of us believe the same way: We the People want candidates to be required to present birth documentation proving eligibility for the office of the presidency.
Shrimpton is a barrister. He writes,
If I am right in my conclusion that President Obama was born in what is now Kenya (it was then the Coastal Protectorate) he cannot have been born to Ann Dunham, as there is no evidence she was in Kenya in 1960 or 1961. Since she is his route to US citizenship (a somewhat doubtful route at best, since his father was already married and the form of ceremony of marriage between Ann and Barack Hussein Senior was bigamous) birth in the Protectorate would also take down his US Citizenship. He has never naturalized and is not in my opinion a US Citizen by birth (jus soli) or descent (jus sanguini).
Our friend and fellow blogger Citizen Wells has a post on this topic, too. In his article, he presents proof that background information on Barrister Shrimpton is being scrubbed, even as what Shrimpton says is going viral. Certainly Citizen Wells, a fan of Orwell, also has included pertinent quotes from the book 1984, related to this rewriting of history.
What we’re left to wonder is, “Why now?” Where has this video been for the past few years?
