Barrack Obama’s half brother Malik has released a picture of what he claims is the former US president’s Kenyan birth certificate. The dubious document was uploaded to Twitter on 9 March in an apparent attempt to reignite the birther debate.
It is not known where Malik acquired the document though its validity is highly questionable. In 2011 the White House issued a long-form version of President Obama’s Hawaiian birth certificate in response to a conspiracy theory that he was born abroad.
Were the conspiracy – coined the “birther movement” – true, it would have made Obama’s presidency illegitimate. Donald Trump was the movement’s most famous advocate but he has since publicly acknowledged that Obama was born in the US.
Malik has been a vocal supporter of Donald Trump and his Twitter profile picture shows him wearing a signature red “make America great again” hat.
The unverified and, almost likely, dubious ‘birth certificate’ produced by Malik alleges that his half brother was born at Coast Province General Hospital in Mombasa on 4 August 1961 – the exact same day given on Obama’s Hawaiian certificate. The names of Obama’s parents are also identical on both documents .
The US constitution states that people born outside the US cannot become president. The birther movement was a constant thorn in Obama’s side throughout his time in office even after the White House produced his Hawaiian birth certificate.
Trump did eventually acknowledge the movement had been nothing more than a conspiracy and then sought to take credit for bringing the issue to into public light so that it could be properly addressed.
Malik Obama has previously been critical of his half-brother. He took issue with the 44th president’s stance on gay marriage and complained that he had to book an appointment if he wanted to talk to his powerful sibling.
In July 2016 he told the New York Post that he was backing Trump against Hilary Clinton. He said that he blamed Clinton and Obama for helping to create a power-vacuum in Libya by removing Colonel Gaddafi.
“My brother and the Secretary of State disappointed me in that regard,” he said.
“I don’t think politics is my thing,” he added. “Honestly, I’ll be happy when my brother is out of office, and I will finally be out of the limelight and be able to live like a human being.”
It his hard to square his professed desire for a quiet life with his decision to publish a the alleged ‘birth certificate’. Malik Obama did not respond to IBTimes UK’s request for comment.
IMPLICATIVE DISCOVERY: A government document found buried in the online reference section of a Boston Public Library archive bolsters a growing mountain of evidentiary data against Barack Obama’s constitutional eligibility to be president. The document indicates that a consular officer issued a single certificate of statutory citizenship, within the time frame including August 4, 1961, to a child born to a U.S. citizen between July 1st and December 31st, 1961 in the Kenyan region of Africa. The record also reveals that the certificate was the only one issued for this specific type of arrival in the U.S. over a span of more than 18 months, among thousands from other parts of the world.

NEW YORK, NY – A recently discovered rare immigration record found by researchers working on behalf of an ongoing investigation into the Constitutional eligibility of Barack Obama to hold the office of the U.S. presidency reveals that an American consular officer issued a single Certificate of Citizenship to only one passenger arriving in the U.S. from the Kenyan region of Africa between July and December of 1961.
The record shows demographic and status classifications for a passenger who was explicitly recorded at the INS Arrival Inspection Station as an individual being born to a U.S. citizen parent arriving from the Kenyan region of Africa between July 1st and December 31st, 1961.
This information and the dates of its documentation are disturbing given the rare nature of the issuance of certificates of citizenship for children who acquire their citizenship by birth to incoming U.S. citizens in this particular region of Africa.
These dates not only align with the alleged date of Obama’s birth on August 4, 1961, but also with evidence indicating that Ann Dunham departed from Hawaii beginning in February, 1961, shortly after her undocumented marriage to Obama Sr.
Also supported by this data is the implication of an African trip by the absence of Dunham’s passport information which is known to have existed from the 1960s which was used in at least one occasion for her departure with Obama Jr. to Indonesia where the two lived with Lolo Soetoro, Dunham’s second husband. If Dunham had filed for a “renewal” of an old passport, rather than for a new passport in the mid 1960’s for the Indonesian trip, which would have been the common practice for the life of a passport, this would have been indicated on the missing application which would have been included with the series of documents released by an FOIA request in early 2010.
The Immigration and Naturalization Service published its annual Report of the Immigration and Naturalization Service in 1963, for the year of July 1st, 1961 ending on June 30th, 1962. According to information on page 99 of the report the only certificate of acquired citizenry issued based on the grounds of birth to a U.S. citizen abroad was coincidentally also issued in the same time frame during which Barack Obama’s alleged birth date occurred on August 4th, 1961.
According to the INS, Certificates of Citizenship are issued upon arrival in the U.S. to those who have acquired statutory citizenship (not natural-born citizenship) by birth to at least one U.S. citizen parent within the previous year while that parent(s) was temporarily in another country. COC are notifications provided by the American Consulate Service, via the INS, to individuals born to at least one U.S. citizen abroad in order to provide interim citizen alien status while immigration status is processed and secured. COC are not issued to natural-born citizens or children born to non-U.S. citizen parents arriving in the U.S., nor are COC received through the same process as required for naturalized citizenship, according to the INS.
