The Donald The Birth

UPDATE: Two hours after the below story was published, Trump released a copy of his birth certificate. Click here to view it.  

MARCH 29--Though Donald Trump has yet to release his actual birth certificate, a tantalizing clue emerged today that may indicate the multimillionaire developer was, in fact, born in the United States, The Smoking Gun has learned.

Trump, who has challenged President Barack Obama to prove he is an American citizen, yesterday released what he claimed to be his own birth certificate (“It took me one hour to get,” he crowed). Except the document Trump proffered was not an official New York City birth certificate, but rather a document purportedly produced by Jamaica Hospital, where Trump was reportedly born in June 1946.

In an attempt to track down proof of the 64-year-old Trump’s citizenship, TSG today traveled to the main branch of the New York Public Library, which houses a collection of microfiche indices to New York City births. The microfiche cards contain the official Department of Health ledgers of births, broken down by year and borough.

An examination of envelope XMG-1108--which contains an alphabetical listing of all recorded births in New York City in 1946--reveals that a child with the surname “Trump” and the given name “Donald” was born on June 14 in Queens. As seen above (click to enlarge), the entry also includes the number of the corresponding Department of Health birth certificate--7624. The real estate developer has said he was born on June 14.

A New York City birth certificate includes information about a child’s parents, where and when the birth occurred, and the signature of the medical official who attested to details of the birth. However, like Hawaii, New York City birth certificates are not public documents. A copy of a birth certificate will only be released by the Office of Vital Records to the named party or an attorney representing them.

So, to quell suspicions from the growing “Trumper” movement, The Donald--if he does not already have a copy of certificate 7624 from 1946--may want to head here and get his order in the pipeline. A copy will set him back $15, plus $8.30 for a “mailing and service charge.” If Trump orders now online, the wait for processing on his request will only be a few days. (2 pages)

Hey, just would like to point out that this whole whether Obama is a natural born citizen or not debate is ridiculous. Why? It doesn't matter whether he was born here or Kenya because HIS MOTHER WAS A CITIZEN, which under our law of jus sanguinus means that he is a natural born citizen. Anything else is completely irrelevant.
100% hairpiece and eyebrows
President Obama should re-institute the military draft under Presidential Executive Order and draft all of you chicken-hawk right wingnut types into the US military and deploy you armchair experts to become grunts in various foreign lands like Afghanistan, Egypt, Yemen, Libya, Morocco, Sudan, Syria, South America for about two years and then when and IF you'll be more appreciative of the United States of America and not so quick to want to send others directly into harms way....OOooohHRAaaa!!! Beck can be your water bearer.
Yeah - you might be right. Especially since Obama is a war monger himself. Like putting the US in the middle of other government confrontations/squabbles without the approval of the people. Who said we want to pay for his power tripp'in? What happened to improving our schools, healthcare, etc..
Boy, do you have that wrong. How'd you get that turned around? The right wingnut types you speak of are the ones who usually enlist in hopes of seeing combat. Lefties usually enlist for the government benefits, then many of them become disgruntled when they actually end up deployed into a war zone where they can't handle it and end up on the government dole the rest of their lives because of the PTSD they suffer. However, we should all be grateful for all who serve, even Democrats. I'm beginning to think that a lot of people don't even know the difference between right and left.....they just know what they've been told to believe by their leftist parents, teachers and professors and various leftist news sources. Actually listen to and read conservative news sources for yourself (instead of just hearing the bashing from the left) and you might learn something. Why must the leftists sound so bitter and sling mud all the time? They must be the most unhappy people on Earth.
You are absolutely right - no pun intended. Tim Mcveigh was a top notch soldier, just itching for combat (ask any of his superiors and they will confirm that he was an exemplary soldier in every way). When Bush Sr.'s war did not give him the combat he so intensely craved, he turned his aggresion toward his own country that cheated him out of his moments of violence. Your statement, in a way, is calling soldiers who suffer from PTSD a bunch of pussies. I guess you would rather they be more like Timothy Mcveigh.
AND ONE MORE THING: POO!!! on all yOu Obama haters!!! Mr. Wee Wee sez yOu gO girl and GET BEHIND Barack!!! yOu gO girl!!!
The bottom line is that Barak Obama IS the President of the United States and if anyone doesn't like it, ... TOO BAD! He's in office and if he could be removed, some political opposition party surely would be trying, but they are not. What does that tell you? It tells you "birther" idiots that he IS a Natural Born Citizen of the US and he is YOUR President! Suck on that!
At this point, the birth certificate doesn't even matter. Lets just all put our energy into making sure this waste of space is not reelected. Remember, the longer this goes on, the more poor people are created...and that gives more votes to obama.
Mr. Wee Wee sez yOu gO girl and STAND FIRM BEHIND BARACK! Let the Obama wee wee FLY and the 'birthers' can waste their wee wee all alone!!!
Thank you for Unsubscribing, Lonnie. Can you get any more of these right-wing, Obama hating, nut-jobs to Unsubscribe from TSG? You people are morons!
Ha, are you seriously calling others nut jobs? You should really take a good look at yourself. Hussein is far too inexperienced to be the C&C of the greatest military in the world. He makes terrible decisions on a daily basis that leave service members vulnerable. He has no balls and finally when he does (kinda sorta) he chops them off himself (Libya great example of such). I hated him before, hate him more now, and I am sure will hate him the most (but be relieved) when he leaves the WH in 2012.
Your not selling your sanity all that well. Please explain the coorelation between bombing Libia and chopping off his balls. Oh wait you did the sentence after. He could hand you a million dollars and you'd still hate him. Do us all a favor and stay in the woods where you belong. And I cannot wait for 2012. You people really think you can throw a contender in with the man? All I hear is 2012, I don't hear any solutions to your "problem". Shame on your kids for teaching you how to use a computer.
You don't hear any solutions because you refuse to listen to any from the right. After all, the leftist media doesn't braodcast conservative solutions. Tell us one good thing that your man, Obama has done for the nation as a whole. See, you hit the nail on the head....."He could hand you a million dollars and you'd still hate him"'s all about the money when it comes to Democrats, isn't it?....and where would Obama get that money? Redistributing the wealth that other people worked for, of course! By the way, Working Liberal, you're not selling your sanity all that well, least learn how to spell because it makes 'your man' look rather bad to have so many illiterates supporting him.
In thier defense they have all been brainwashed. And they would say the same about us and the "lamestream media". Apparently Beck is the only alternative - f'n wonderful.
And it appears you are a rightist(get it, I did not extreme wright wing I want to country to fail so that he "President Obama" to fail.) Tell me if that is straight out racist who are looking for any and everything to question when it comes to President Obama. But I will continue to pray for all of you!
The more the Obama supporters attack Trump over his birth certificate, the more they make themselves out to be blaring hypocrites!
You don't understand parody, do you? Trump bragged that he could get his birth certificate quickly, but he got the wrong one and had to send for another. He had been expressing the opinion that Obama may be foreign born because he has not released his long form birth certificate. But Hawaii only issues the COLB which is less detailed but is legal. They want one that shows which hospital he was born in and who the doctor was. Those details are not required to prove citizenship. Maybe it's because it is possible to be born at home or in a cab without the presence of a doctor. It's not hard to google the details birthers think have to be on a legal birth certiticate. Dr Rodney T. West Kapi'olani Maternity Hospital .
I think it's more "returning fire" than hypocrisy.
Attack? Noone cares buddy. A bit of a stretch don't ya think.
TSG, is it to much to ask for you to be unbiased? Where is the research into our president? I don’t believe one way or the other as to where he was born, but to hold the office of US President it is a requirement. Is it to much to ask for proof? I have unsubscribed to TSG because of the bias.
^ just to note again, his mom was a citizen which means he is a natural born citizen regardless of where he was born.
Thank you, for unsubscribing.
Where's the proof? Where have you been the last few years?
TSG has now become an arm of the Obama Re-Election Campaign for 2012. Thanks for letting us know how you stand on it. For anyone who is actually interested in the controversy, here are some points. 1. The short form certificate released by Obama represents something else in the Hawaii archives, a long form presumably. 2. Gov. Abercrombie promised to release the long form in late 2010. Remember? Then he publicly stated he could not release. Nobody is quite sure why. 3. IMO, Obama could have defused all of this simply by requesting the long form be released or waiving his privacy right on that particular document. He has refused to do that - preferring to spend a lot of money on lawyers trying to hide his birth certificate. **** Trump has courage here. And TSG has revealed itself to be just another mouthpiece for Liberal Democrats. At least it has done us a favor by showing us its political bias. Duly noted.
You're absolutely right. He shouldn't have ANY privacy as the President. How dare he? We should have him monitored 24 hours a day, especially when he has to use the bathroom. He was elected by the country to fulfill a public office and the majority of the Senate and House of Representatives believe him to be an American citizen. I HIGHLY doubt that with the heavy biases that the parties have against another that a man could become President without being a natural born citizen. Also, I like how nobody seems to care that his mother is an American citizen. He could have been born in Beijing and he'd be an American citizen because his mother is one. I can't believe that there is still any doubt on this issue.
I never knew TSG had so many right-wing idiots who posted on this site. I knew there was something that kept me from coming to this site too often.
Hate and Intolerance.. The new standard of the Liberal mindset.
While I disagree with the open hatred displayed by shag11, I do have to question the validity of your statement. Also, let he who is without sin cast the first stone. If you've been paying any attention to the right wing of American politics over the last few years, I'd go ahead and just drop those rocks.
Oh dear, looks like shag11 is one of those leftists (notice that I didn't say left- wing idiots) who can't stand anyone with opposing views, so he or she resorts to insults instead of debate.
What are we debating? A conspiracy theory. Debating a conspiracy theory is as productive as debating religion. I'd rather not waste my time.
If a child is born in the US to a father who owes allegiance to a foreign power, that child also owes allegiance to that foreign power. This was always our law. It was US law at the time of the adoption of the Constitution, at the time Obama was born, and it is US law today. Nothing has changed. Obama admits his birth status was governed by the United Kingdom. I think it’s very important to note that Obama himself gave preference to the United Kingdom in his statement at Fight The Smears. Notice that he didn’t say his birth status was governed by both United Kingdom and the US. Obama chose to give preference to his father’s nationality by stating that his birth status was directly tied to his father and not his mother. From Obama's Fightthesmears site: “As a Kenyan native, Barack Obama Sr. was a British subject whose citizenship status was governed by The British Nationality Act of 1948. That same act governed the status of Obama Sr.‘s children.” Why did Obama feel compelled to state that his birth status was governed by the British Nationality Act of 1948 rather than the 14th Amendment?
Three of these six former presidents had fathers born in Ireland. So they didn't qualify according to your standards. Four of them had foreign born mothers, but maternity isn't supposed to count, I guess. Andrew Jackson (1829-1837) is the only president born of two immigrants, both Irish. Presidents with one immigrant parent are Thomas Jefferson (1801-1809), whose mother was born in England, James Buchanan (1857-1861) and Chester Arthur (1881-1885), both of whom had Irish fathers, and Woodrow Wilson (1913-1921) and Herbert Hoover (1929-1933), whose mothers were born respectively in England and Canada.
dragonfrybuynby..please remove your white sheets so that we can clearly understand exactly what point your are attempting to make..thank you very much...
"During the course of my employment, I came to understand that for political reasons, various officials in the government of Hawaii, including then-Governor Linda Lingle and various officials of the Hawaii Department of Health, including Dr. Chiyome ***ino, the director of the Hawaii Department of Health, were making representations that Senator Obama was born in Hawaii, even though no government official in Hawaii could find a long-form birth certificate for Senator Obama that had been issued by a Hawaii hospital at the time of his birth." In the sworn affidavit, Adams also states that his supervisors told him to quit asking about Obama's birth records. "I was told by senior officers in the City and County of Honolulu Elections Division to stop inquiring about Senator Obama's Hawaii birth records, even though it was common knowledge among my fellow employees that no Hawaii long-form, hospital-generated birth certificate existed for Senator Obama." "I can go get my long-form, hospital-generated birth certificate. And so I don't understand, this whole controversy should have been settled three or four years ago in about five minutes." Adams has stated in the past that he discounts the validity of the “short form” version of the Hawaiian birth record commonly issued to applicants which is called a "Certification of Live Birth", the same document long attributed as the sole evidence used to proclaim Obama’s eligibility to occupy the White House. Until 2009, the Department of Hawaiian Homelands outright rejected this document as a primary form of identification for confirming native Hawaiian citizenship, let alone American natural born citizenship. Many officials, including Adams, explicitly have said the short-form Certification of Live Birth is not an authoritative form of documentation proving that Obama was born in Hawaii.
Born in Kenya?>!, Ask your congressman to ask Obama "Where the real birth certificate"?, If he is not qualified so is everything he singed from day one!/! Obama "Where is the real birth certificate"?
The notion that everything he signed from day one would be null and void if he was found to be ineligible is just another birther myth for the gullible. If he was removed from office everything he signed would remain exactly the same as it would have been as if he had been eligible. It's called the "de facto officer" doctrine and it's well established in US law. Sure there could theoretically be legal challenges to some things in due course but they'd be highly unlikely to succeed.
Mr. Wee Wee sez "yOu gO girl" and STAND FIRM BEHIND Barack!
Trump knew exactly what he was doing, purposely released the hospital bc, all you people spent more time examining his bc than you have Barry's you all knew it wasn't a legal Long Form Birth Certificate, the likes of which "President Obama" has yet to release. Then after you've all made complete fools out of yourselves including your media heads, ta-dum! This is what a legal long form looks like and it's nothing like obama's Certification of Live Birth, the Certification only proves a child was born alive. Even Sun Yat Sen, founding father of the Republic of China (Taiwan), who was born in Cuiheng, China, was issued a Certification of Live Birth by the State of Hawaii. It's long been known Hawaii is the place to go for illegals to magically become American citizens, it's Hawaii's dirty little secret. The publication of a birth notice in the local paper also proves nothing as these notices are routinely taken off the Certificate of Live Birth registrations. When released a “Certification of Live Birth” in August 2008, the organization did not disclose that it lacked the information present on the official long-form document which contains the signature of the doctor who delivered the child, the height and weight of the baby, and considerable personal information about the parents such as occupation and their birthplaces. An official document also would have contained a raised stamp from the Registrar of Vital Statistics, the seal is not raised, it's incised! It's a forgery, this is why the State of Hawaii will not verify what was put on the internet is a legal copy. Questions directed to staff members have repeatedly gone unanswered, no surprise forgery is punishable by law. So now TSG, after the irony of this show and your articles chronicling this event, may we expect to see you release "President Obama's" original Long Form Birth Certificate in your follow-up?
Well, Trump has released his OFFICIAL Certified Birth Certificate!
Nope, just a copy of it. Where's the actual birth certificate?
Ooooh, TSG sure used an insulting picture of Trump for this report, knowing that his hair means a lot to him. But why not? It's what Democrats do when they can't win on their own merits. It's a childish and bullying tactic.
There's now a third Trump BC released. This latest one is a bit like a COLB, it's titled a Certification of Birth, is much shorter than the 1946 version and it was issued at Trump's request in 1999.
Oh!!! According to the accompanied document, Donald Trump's mother was not a natural born citizen and national of the United States. The document clearly stated that she was born in Scotland, which made her a citizen and national of same regardless of the citizenship of the father. Furthermore, that document is not an official document because it does not bear an offficial State Vital Statistic seal as required by law. This document is not a valid birth document to establish identity, place of birth or right to be and/or remain in the Unuted States of America and would be refused by the most junior officer of the US Dept of State for the purpose of obtaining a legal US passport for travel. Perhap US Immigration and Customs Enforcement should pay the ol' Don a visit...for a cup of tea and a little chat.
It appears to have a rubber stamp seal in the top left hand corner. You can see it by reversing the negative.
Born in Scotland? Yeah, so? Ever hear of a thing called "Naturalization?" What makes you think she wasn't an American citizen when he was born? He's Still shown more proof of being born here than Obama has. I don't accept the word of state officials at all. I'm adopted, and my "Official" birth certificate is nothing but a pack of lies.
What's the point in any more proof of Obama being born in USA? We've got proof coming out lof our ears already and not a single shred of evidence that he wasn't. Furthermore it's absolutely normal for somebody to be born where his parents lived at the time, just like Trump was born where his parents lived at the time.
I haven't seen ANY proof that he was born here. All i've seen is a computer printout issued by the state. I'm adopted. I have a fake birth certificate too! Big Woop! Show me a REAL birth certificate with a signature from a witness that SAW him being born here. (Usually attested by the Doctor Delivering.)
She was naturalized in 1942 and under British law in existence at the time of Trump's birth a British woman who had naturalized in USA and gave birth in USA did not confer British nationality to the child in any case.
