Looks like we gots a new case! \ :D / =D> :-bd





Berryville [VA] resident, George Archibald has petitioned the United States District Court for the District of Columbia to compel the Department of Justice (DOJ), the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and former White House Counsel Robert Bauer to produce documents that Archibald says may provide new insight into whether the President’s mother forfeited his US citizenship when Obama was just six-years-old.





“I’m not a ‘birther,’’’ Archibald said after filing his lawsuit. “I’m simply interested in getting to the bottom of what appears to be stone-walling by the administration against my Freedom of Information request.”





In the suit, filed on November 16 in the District of Columbia, Archibald alleges that a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request that he filed with the FBI’s Winchester, Virginia office on April 15, 2011 asking for information produced during the FBI’s background check of presidential candidate Barack Hussein Obama II was improperly rejected. In the FOIA request Archibald asks for “information regarding Obama’s birth in 1961, family background, citizenship, residency, immigration, expatriation/repatriation, and other matters related to Obama’ s origins and nationality generated during the FBI’s 2008 investigation of presidential candidates.”





Archibald’s request is based on President Dwight D. Eisenhower’s Executive Order 10450, “Security Requirements for Government Employment,” issued in 1953. Under the Eisenhower directive, the FBI conducts background checks on all presidential candidates. Archibald is seeking information that may have turned up in the FBI investigation related to Barach Obama’s citizenship status after his mother wed an Indonesian citizen.Adopted, naturalized to attend school, “... you both were temporarily refused admission by Indonesian authorities, who balked at your dual U.S.-Kenya nationality,” FBI may be holding information, “As a career news reporter and book author with credentialed Congressional and the House experience over many years...US District Court Judge Reggie Walton is expected to schedule a hearing on the matter within the next 60 days....

NEW STUFF:


* EO 10450, which doesn't seem to have anything to do with candidates.


* New scenario at the border in Indonesia

One sentence in and I'm already in love:


...and Robert F. Bauer, [highlight]in his capacity as attorney of political law[/highlight].... :-bd








In the complaint, Archibald describes himself as a newspaper person from Clarke County (way northern Virginia). [/break1]huffingtonpost.com/george-archibald]HuffPo has links to a George Archibald who used to work for the Washington Times (and was "nominated four times by the newspaper for the Pulitzer Prize" (whatever that means)*). Amazon [/break1]amazon.com/Journalism-War-George-Archibald/dp/0978845374]has one of his books (and a bio).








* A paper can pay the entry fee and enter its work. A committee narrows the field down to the actual nominations. "Entrant" is the word Archibald is looking for.

From the complaint:





"B. Archibald's FOIA request specified the following, which Hardy did not search, itemize with a Vaughn index as required, and produce to the Plaintiff:


(1) Any and all FBI files on the birth and location of birth of Barack Hussein Obama Jr. (in his name or his childhood name Barry Soetoro);


(2) Obama Jr.'s immigration to the United States (in his name or that of Barry Soetoro), as an infant, with his mother Stanley Ann Dunham;


(3) Obama J r. 's immigration (in his name or that of Barry Soetoro) to Indonesia at age six and forfeiture of his U.S. citizenship in order for him to become an Indonesian citizen as required by Indonesian authorities that did not recognize dual citizenship and be legally adopted by his stepfather Lolo Soetoro;


(4) Obama Jr.'s naturalization to U.S. citizenship (in his name or that of Barry Soetoro) at the time Obama aka Soetoro was an Indonesian citizen;


(5) Obama Jr.' s trip to Pakistan as a college student (in his name or as Barry Soetoro) when travel by American citizens was banned to Pakistan;


(6) the use by Obama Jr. (in his name or in his adopted name Barry Soetoro) of multiple Social Security cards that were not his own or were fake Social Security cards."For someone who claims not to be a birther, he's certainly bringing up an awful lot of birther memes. Indonesian citizenship myth, check. Fake social security number myth, check. Pakistan travel ban myth, check.





And from the attachments, in his "open letter to Obama":





"The public claim of your own paternal step-grandmother Sarah Onyango Obama, third wife of your paternal grandfather Habiba Akumu Obama, who publicly stated in a globally televised interview that she witnessed your birth in Nyanza Province, Kenya, West Africa, in August 1960 --- contradicting your claim and purported documentation that you were born on American territorial soil in Honolulu, Hawaii"Well, it wasn't a "globally televised interview", but rather an interview with a birther-friendly evangelist. And even then she stated quite clearly that President Obama was born in Hawaii, clearly enough that Berg had to use a creatively edited version in his filings.





For someone who likes to repeatedly claim in his documentation that he's a "career four-time Pulitzer Prize-nominated investigative national and world news reporter, whose career record during the past half-century has been one of beneficial reportage in the public interest as journalist and hook author", he's really piss-poor at checking his facts or information.

Judge Reggie Walton is very familiar to those of us who followed every minute of the Scooter Libby trial. Scooter would have gone to prison had not Bush commuted his sentence (but not the pardon Cheney pressured him for).

From the FOIA reply:Enclosed is a Certification of Identity form. […} The subject of your request should complete this form and then sign it or prepare a document containing the require descriptive data and have it notarized…I'll bet the DOJ laughed themselves silly at that paragraph. They didn't just say "you have to get President Obama's permission" they gave him the form. =))

Check out page 11 of [link]Attachment #1,[/link]. Georgie sent Obama an open letter on May 6, 2011.





On April 27th, as part of my own reporting on this issue and deadline stories and writing then under way, I personally telephoned your White House Press Office staff to request factual assistance and answers to questions, but was rebuffed by your staff and instructed to "get back to us." I was given the understandable response that your staff was too busy responding to others simultaneously. WTF?!





However, I was not alerted by your White House Press Office that preparations were then under way for you to go before the nation to release the Adobe PDF electronic image of the State of Hawaii Certificate of Birth, File Number 151-61-10641, signed by your mother (Stanley) Ann Dunham Obama on August 7, 1961, Attendant David A. Smilan and the Local Registrar of Births on August 8, 1961, that would seem to validate your status as a "natural born" U.S. citizen who would qualify for eligibility to be President of the United States. WTF?!





This oversight by your staff, perhaps deliberate, was unnecessary and unhelpful, to you as well as to me. ... =)) =)) =)) =)) =))





Georgie has a mad :evil: :evil: :evil: and a pout :cry: :cry: .





Georgie is a nutter. He also writes oddly.

Odd, because the Press Office of course likes to break national news to random people on the phone first, THEN to the national media.

From the [link]Clarke Daily News,http://www.clarkedailynews.com/berryvil ... onse/27203[/link]





Berryville Man Files Federal Lawsuit Over FOIA Response,


By Edward Leonard on Nov 28 2011.





A local man is asking a United States federal court to help him gain access to information related to the citizenship history of President Barack Obama.





Berryville resident, George Archibald has petitioned the United States District Court for the District of Columbia to compel the Department of Justice (DOJ), the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and former White House Counsel Robert Bauer to produce documents that Archibald says may provide new insight into [highlight]whether the President’s mother forfeited his US citizenship when Obama was just six-years-old. [-([/highlight] [not possible dipshit]





If Archibald’s suspicion is correct it would raise important questions about the legitimacy of Obama’s qualifications to hold the office of President of the United States.





[...]





“As a career news reporter and book author with credentialed Congressional and the House experience over many years, I have faced stonewalling and cover-up by many presidential administrations and politicians of all persuasions,” Archibald said. “It doesn’t work.”





[highlight]US District Court Judge Reggie Walton is expected to schedule a hearing on the matter within the next 60 days.[/highlight] O'rly? =))


Comments are mixed, but the birthers and other idiots abound...





Sarge


Tuesday November 29, 2011 - 1:40 pm





What’s making this bad and keeps it going is that the state of Hawaii will not open the actual book that supposedly contains Obama’s birth certificate, even though Obama himself showed what was billed as a legit long form certificate. Another thing that still raises hackles is that there was a woman who had twins in the same hospital that Obama claims to have been born in, just a day or after before Obama was supposedly born there. There are pictures of this woman holding up copies of her kids birth certificates.





[/break1]honoluluadvertiser.com/dailypix/2009/Jul/28/M1139416728.GIF]http://the.honoluluadvertiser.com/daily ... 416728.GIF





The numbers on those certificates are higher than the number on Obama’s birth certificate, even though she had her kids AFTER Obama was born

And here’s the story of Sheriff Joe Arpaio in Arizona, who is requesting to see the microfilm roll for the timeframe of Obama’s birth.

George Archibald (Author)





List Price: $14.95


Price: $11.66 & eligible for FREE Super Saver Shipping on orders over $25. Details


You Save: $3.29 (22%)Book Description


Publication Date: August 1, 2009


In the 1980’s, Rep. Newt Gingrich, then Republican whip and organizer of House Republican conservatives, was a major source for The Washington Times.





Gingrich and his band of young-turk conservative Republican House members elected in the late 1970s and early eighties were tired of their party’s leaders who had become the lazy, perpetual minority.





Gingrich, Trent Lott and other young Republican House members reached out to reporters like George Archibald, fed them stories, gave them access to documents and sources and briefed them in daily meetings in Gingrich’s second-floor whip’s office in the U.S. Capitol.





[...]





In “Journalism is War”, George Archibald recounts stories behind these stories – Democratic vice-presidential candidate Geraldine Ferraro’s financial ethics problems in 1984, Reagan media adviser Michael Deaver’s lobbying scandal leading to his perjury conviction in 1986, House Speaker Jim Wright’s disgrace and resignation in 1989, subsequent congressional scandals in the early 1990s and cultural conflict stories to the present.


Editorial Reviews


About the Author


George Archibald, retired senior investigative reporter for The Washington Times, teaches undergraduate journalism courses and has written a book about stories behind the stories during his 30 years as a newspaperman. He covered Congress, the federal government and national politics in Washington for 23 years as a senior investigative reporter for The Washington Times after he broke the Geraldine Ferraro financial ethics story in 1984. He was the newspaper's national education reporter from 2001 to 2005.





Archibald was nominated for the Pulitzer Prize in journalism four times. He reported as a former government insider, having also run a congressional office, served as a budget policy staffer on the House Appropriations Committee and briefly as a deputy assistant secretary of education during the Reagan administration.





Mr. Archibald's 30 years as a newspaperman include six years as editor and [highlight]general manager of college, military and community newspapers[/highlight]. Archibald's first job during high school in 1962 was as an assistant for the late national radio news commentator Fulton Lewis, Jr. He was editor of his college newspaper at Old Dominion University in Norfolk, Va., where he got a degree in political science and history.





Drafted into the military in 1967, [highlight]Archibald served as editor of an Air Force newspaper at the nation’s largest pilot-training base in Arizona during the Vietnam era[/highlight]. After military service, he was a staff columnist, letters editor and editorial pages makeup editor for The Arizona Republic in Phoenix from 1970 to 1973.

There's no evidence any of his work made it to finals.It is akin to Taitz saying she successfully qualified to run to be California's Secretary of State, when her primary effort was opening her checkbook. (Dunn can at least say he won the primary.)
