Draft Registration Lie

Debbie Schussle wants to know if President-elect Barack Hussein Obama committed a federal crime?


Did he never actually register and, instead, did friends of his in the Chicago federal records center, which maintains the official copy of his alleged Selective Service registration commit the crime for him?

It's either one or the other, as indicated by the release of Barack Obama's official Selective Service registration for the draft. A friend of mine, who is a retired federal agent, spent almost a year trying to obtain this document through a Freedom of Information Act request, and, after much stonewalling, finally received it and released it to me.

But the release of Obama's draft registration and an accompanying document, posted below, raises more questions than it answers. And it shows many signs of fraud, not to mention putting the lie to Obama's claim that he registered for the draft in June 1979, before it was required by law.

Check out THIS documentation.

The Registration Stamp

Nagging Questions Remain
Did Obama actually ever register with the Selective Service?  If so, did he register late?  Did he registered at all?  Which birth certificate did he present?  The COLB shown during the 2008 presidential campaign was dated 2007, so we know it wasn't that one.

The Sonoran News has stated in an article entitled, Obama conspiracy -- It’s no longer just a theory, that "It became obvious records were created after the fact for Obama and were later changed."

Why has this image been made available to the public through FOIA requests, but his birth certificate, college records, school records, medical records, and passport records have not?

Was an amendment to Obama’s Selective Service file made in 1991 or not?

Why are there two different DLNs for the same SS record?

Why was the record accessed on September 9, 2008, two days after Obama appeared on national TV during the campaign discussing his registration with the Selective Service?  Could any FOIA requests resulting from the television interview already have been received at that time by Mr. Flahavan’s office?  Was someone trying to cover for Obama and therefore accessed his file soon after his public misstatement of fact?

Background and details here -- in-depth video here . . .
No Identification -- Again
BirtherReport.com reports that according to the law, Barack Obama was required to register for the Selective Service and he had to present proper identification, which he did not.  You will see from the form that the "No ID" box is check marked.
Therefore, Obama DID NOT comply with the law, which is as follows:
Proclamation 4771–Registration Under the Military Selective Service Act -- source: The provisions of Proclamation 4771 of July 2, 1980, appear at 45 FR 45247, 3 CFR, 1980 Comp., p. 82, unless otherwise noted.

1-3. Manner of Registration.

1-301. Persons who are required to be registered shall comply with the registration procedures and other rules and regulations prescribed by the Director of Selective Service.

1-302. When reporting for registration each person shall present for inspection reasonable evidence of his identity. After registration, each person shall keep the Selective Service System informed of his current address.

Obama's lack of ID, as indicated on the Selective Service Registration Form makes me wonder what type of ID Obama had at the time he actually registered for the Selective Service.  Did he have a driver's license?  If he did, what documentation, e.g. birth certificate, social security card, etc., did he present to get his Driver's license?  I know my DMV marks down what type of identification I bring in to verify my identity.  Could the DMV be another avenue to obtain information on Obama?

I don't know whether or not the Selective Service Registration Form is a forgery.  It appears that Obama registered the date/month/year he was suppose to register.  The SS Proclamation outlines the requirements for males born in 1960 and 1961 and it appears that Obama did comply.

However, Obama did not comply with "each person SHALL present for inspection reasonable evidence of his identity."  SHALL means MUST!

Could Obama's non-compliance make him ineligible to hold public office.  If this is the case, then the birth certificate and/or dual citizenship may not even matter.  Obama would have never been eligible to hold any public office.

So the real question is, did Obama willfully withhold documentation that would verify his identity?

Whatever the case, the Selective Service must have additional written documentation on Obama in a special Selective Service file pertaining to his 1H Classification.  Therefore, is it worth a visit to the Local Selective Service Board in Hawaii, or could these files be obtained through an FOIA request?

I just have a "nagging gut feeling" that there is something more to this and no one has bothered to investigate.  Looking into it just might yield some valuable information.

But one question that needs to be answered is this -- how is it that Obama's draft registration was postmarked THE DAY BEFORE he signed it?
Draft Questions
Sharp-eyed Lexie made this observation.  Obama's signatures are different on his allegedly  counterfeit Selective Service Registration and his Statement of Candidacy.  Imagine that?

Selective Service Registration

Candidacy Form

Since the Selective Service Registration form contains a forged signature, then Obama is in violation of the Selective Service Act.  Penalties for Failure to Register for the Draft:

•  Men who do not register could be prosecuted and, if convicted, fined up to $250,000 and/or serve up to five years in prison.  In addition, men who fail to register with Selective Service before turning age 26, even if not prosecuted, will become ineligible for:

•  Student Financial Aid -- including Pell Grants, College Work Study, Guaranteed Student/Plus Loans, and National Direct Student Loans.

•  U.S. Citizenship -- if the man first arrived in the U.S. before his 26th birthday.

•  Federal Job Training -- The Job Training Partnership Act (JTPA) offers programs that can train young men for jobs in auto mechanics and other skills. This program is only open to those men who register with Selective Service.

•  Federal Jobs -- men born after December 31, 1959 must be registered to be eligible for jobs in the Executive Branch* of the Federal government and the U.S. Postal Service.

In addition, several states have added additional penalties for those who fail to register.

*  Last time I checked, the President is a member of the Executive Branch, and Obama was definitely born after 12/31/1959. If that isn't his signature, he's NOT ELIGIBLE!

Thanks to all of you who contributed samples of Obama's signature.  After viewing a dozen or so samples, this signature, posted at Wikipedia and the one on the Candidacy Form, appears to be the "real deal."

Several readers have made the observation that signatures change over time, and that is true.  However, the draft registration form above has been demonstrated to be counterfeit, so the question is, who prepared and signed this forgery, and how did they get it into the Selective Service Data Center?

U.S. Selective Service In Obama Cover-Up?
Joe Kovacs says that members of the public searching the federal database for Obama's registration are suddenly finding new difficulty, possibly due to the startling revelation of his alleged use of a Connecticut-based Social Security Number.

The Selective Service System, or SSS, collects names of Americans for use by the Department of Defense in the event of a national emergency.  On its website, it says it provides the nation "with a structure and a system of guidelines which will provide the most prompt, efficient, and equitable draft possible, if the country should need it."

Regarding Obama, "He is registered.  There is no doubt in our minds that he has, and we're quite prepared to say so," SSS public-affairs specialist Dan Amon said, but the agency's online search engine now appears to be precluding the public from seeing Obama's record after allowing unfettered access.

The database allows people to search for registrants as long as a correct name, Social Security Number and date of birth are entered.

On May 5, WorldNetDaily entered the criteria for Obama, using his date of birth as Aug. 4, 1961, and his Social Security Number, which begins with the Connecticut-issued prefix of 042. The Selective Service database instantly issued a "matched record" without a problem that day, indicating Obama's Selective Service Number is 61-1125539-1.  It lists date of registration as Sept. 4, 1980.

However, when the same information was re-entered on May 20, and the database did not provide the matched record, but instead posted a message, stating, "Error.  Sorry, your request cannot be processed at this time because you have exceeded the daily limit for the verification of these credentials."

The Selective Service was asked what was causing the sudden problem in retrieving records, and Amon said it's likely because many people across the nation are now searching for Obama's records.  "If you run into problems, others have, too," he said.  Amon says a hacking attempt several years ago prompted the agency to beef up security to prevent future electronic attacks.  He initially said the agency created a limit of three verification requests per day for any given record.  "If someone in Omaha, Neb., does it on a whim, then someone in Ohio does it, then that's two times."

He said when more than three requests are submitted -- no matter where they're entered from -- people would see the error message noting the daily limit has been exceeded. "It's like 20 people trying to crowd into a doorway," Amon explained.  "If nobody else in the world is doing it, if you punch it in the format suggested, [you get good results]; but if others try, then it will shut it down."

However, when valid information was repeatedly entered for another American registrant, it received a matched record without any error message despite dozens of requests in the same day.

Amon later indicated his statement about the limit of three was "more of a guess."  He said he checked with the information-technology department about the limit, and admitted, "They got a little edgy."

"They just didn't want to answer it," Amon said, explaining the IT administrators did not wish to "divulge specifics of the system."
From The Selective Service System

You'll notice that Obama's Selective Service record uses the Connecticut Social Security Number -- 042-68-4425 -- of all the Social Security Numbers associated with Obama, this one is the most frequently used.

Linda Bentley says a man who fails to register with SS before turning 26 may find that some doors are permanently closed.

On Sept. 7, 2008, Barack Hussein Obama appeared on ABC’s "This Week with George Stephanopoulos," and stated, "I had to sign up for Selective Service (SS) when I graduated from high school … And I actually always thought of the military as an ennobling and, you know, honorable option.  But keep in mind that I graduated in 1979.  The Vietnam War had come to an end.  We weren’t engaged in active military conflict at that point.  And so, it’s not an option that I ever decided to pursue."

Some people did keep in mind that he graduated in 1979 and noted the registration requirement was suspended in April 1975 by President Gerald Ford and wasn’t reinstituted until 1980 by President Jimmy Carter in response to the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan.  The Military Selective Service Act required men born in the calendar year 1961 to register on any of the six days beginning Monday, July 28, 1980.

On Oct. 13, 2008, J. Stephen Coffman, a retired federal agent, filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request with the SS for a copy of Obama’s SS registration form.  Debbie Schlussel broke this story on Nov. 13, 2008, questioning myriad peculiarities about Obama’s registration form.  Coffman's FOIA request was processed on Oct. 29, 2008, two days after the SS claimed it was received.  Coffman received a copy of Obama’s registration form along with a copy of the computer inquiry screen, which showed an access date of Sept. 9, 2008, several weeks prior to Coffman’s request.

It was accompanied by a letter from Richard S. Flahavan, associate director for public affairs and intergovernmental affairs, who stated, "Also, the enclosed computer inquiry screen indicates that his registration number is 61-1125539-1, as previously provided to you."  The computer printout shows a transaction date of Sept. 4, 1980 (the date Obama’s July 29, 1980 registration was entered into the system) with a last action date of Sept. 4, 1980, signifying nothing else had been received or entered since the original Sept. 4, 1980 registration form.

Coffman found it peculiar his request, according to the computer printout date, was processed on Sept. 9, 2008, several weeks prior to submitting his request. 

On Feb. 9, 2009, Kenneth Allen submitted a FOIA request for the same records.  He received a response, also from Flavahan, dated March 4, 2009.   Flahavan said a copy of Obama’s SS registration was enclosed along with "the resultant automated file screen," adding, "Mr. Obama did indeed register with the Selective Service and was assigned Selective Service Number 61-1125539-1 on Sept. 4, 1980."  The 10-digit Document Locator Number (DLN) 0897080632 is printed or stamped across the top right hand corner of the registration form.

The computer printout provided to Coffman displayed an 11-digit DLN of 8089 708 0632.
The computer printouts provided to both Allen and Coffman are both dated Sept. 9, 2008.
The copy of the registration form provided to Allen and Coffman are identical.

However, Allen’s computer printout is titled "Registrant File Inquiry Report" while Coffman’s is titled "RIMS History Inquiry Screen," and, the DLN on the computer printout received by Allen, also an 11-digit number, reads: 0897 080 6320.  So, while Coffman’s printout had an eight added to the beginning, Allen’s had a zero added to the end.

Once issued, DLNs do not change.

Even though the inquiry screen indicates Allen’s request was processed on Sept. 9, 2008, just like Coffman’s, it reflects a last action date of June 25, 1991, showing a Form 50 change letter had been received and entered then. Records provided to Coffman reflected no such action.

The post office round date stamp on Obama’s registration form also raised legitimacy concerns.  The stamp displays "USPO Honolulu, HI Makiki Sta." with "Jul 29 80" stamped in the center of the circle on three lines.  However, the two-digit year is stamped off center as if it should have been a four-digit date.

Last week Sonoran News received a response to a FOIA request for 17 SS records for the purpose of making comparisons.  Every single one of them has a four-digit year stamp, including two registrations processed at the very same post office, one within days of Obama’s.  In fact, Bruce Henderson, now deceased, whose birthday was also in August 1961, registered on Aug. 2, 1980 at the Makiki station and his SS number is 61-1125522-7, just 27 numbers apart from Obama’s.  The 10-digit DLN on his registration form reads: 0897080613 and the 11-digit DLN on the computer printout reads: 0897 080 6130, indicating a zero had been added to the end.  Henderson’s registration was also entered in the same batch as Obama’s on Sept. 4, 1980.

Our FOIA request was initially made in October 2009, but after receiving neither a response nor an acknowledgement, a subsequent request was made in December 2009 via certified mail, the receipt of which was promptly acknowledged.  The request was fulfilled by Paula Sweeney from the office of public and intergovernmental affairs and the computer printouts are dated Jan. 15, 2010 and Jan. 20, 2010.

Every single one of the registrations processed in 1980 had a zero added to the end of the DLN on the computer printout, a practice that appears to have changed subsequent to that time.  In fact, a registration dated March 1, 1982 with a 10-digit DLN of 2120360884 stamped on the registration form, has an 11-digit DLN of 8212 036 0884 entered in the computer, which appears to be consistent with registrations added after 1980, and possibly not until 1982.

It became obvious records were created after the fact for Obama and were later changed.  However, the computer access date is frozen on Sept. 9, 2008; two days after Obama appeared on Stephanopoulos’ show saying he registered with SS in 1979 when the requirement was nonexistent.

The mistakes made by adding to and changing the fraudulently created record after Coffman’s FOIA request was fulfilled but before the Allen’s was received, provides an audit trail of the fraud.

It would appear Flahavan, who processed both requests, should have caught the glaring incongruities.  Instead, he got cocky in his letter to Allen by proclaiming, "Mr. Obama did indeed register with Selective Service …"

The SS website proclaims, "Registration is the law.  A man who fails to register may, if prosecuted and convicted, face a fine of up to $250,000 and/or a prison term of up to five years."  It goes on to say, "Even if not tried, a man who fails to register with Selective Service before turning age 26 may find that some doors are permanently closed," including federal student loans or grant programs.  A man must be registered to be eligible for jobs in the executive branch of the federal government, which includes president of the United States.  Registration is also a condition for U.S. citizenship if the man first arrived in the United States before his 26th birthday.

If Obama arrived in Hawaii as a citizen of Indonesia, as his school records and mother’s divorce records indicate, and he didn’t register with SS, he could have been barred from obtaining U.S. citizenship and may not be one now.

However, those covering up Obama’s tracks have done a sloppy job, which means there really is a conspiracy to defraud the American people, not just a theory.
The Question Of Barack Obama's Draft Card:  Has Evidence Been Destroyed?

Alan Jones is reporting that changes in the wording of Selective Service System record-keeping requirements, made days after the opening of an investigation into the alleged forgery of Barack Obama’s selective service registration form, raise serious questions about U.S. Government intentions.

The new rules allow existing copies of documents that may be sought by investigators to be destroyed.

The Selective Service System’s new privacy rules were published in the Federal Register on Tuesday, September 20, 2011, four days after the September 16 announcement by World Net Daily that the Maricopa County (Arizona) Sheriff’s Office "Cold Case Posse" was opening an inquiry with full subpoena power into alleged forgery of several documents concerning Obama’s birth and draft registration.

The new rules, which constitute the first update to Selective Service System privacy regulations in eleven years, were published under the title, "Privacy Act of 1974; Publication of Notice of Systems of Records."

Ongoing controversy surrounding allegations that some of Obama’s personal identification documents and records, including his Selective Service draft registration form, are forgeries came into sharp focus seven months ago. The "Cold Case Posse," under the leadership of Sheriff Joseph M. Arpaio, opened an inquiry in response to those allegations.

"This is a full-fledged criminal investigation," Michael Zullo, lead investigator, told Communities@WashingtonTimes.

"Sheriff Arpaio sent two written requests in March to the Selective Service System requesting President Obama’s draft registration records. Selective Service System officials responded to Arpaio in writing, but did not turn over any of Barack Obama’s registration records."

"We believe they are stonewalling," Zullo added. "In their latest reply letter to the Sheriff, they do not comment on, or even allude to, the microfilm being available to inspect."

Changes in the wording of the privacy rules alters the status of federal records, like the requested draft registration records, from "record copies" to "nonrecord copies." Nonrecord copies are subject to disposal.

Previously unnoticed, the new rules allow the government to destroy microfilm copies of Selective Service registration records and may create new obstacles for law enforcement agencies that are requesting records access for investigative purposes.

If microfilm copies of selective service records are destroyed, it would make it difficult to prove whether or when Obama registered with the Selective Service. At issue is whether he attended Occidental College in Los Angeles as a foreign student, possibly using an Indonesian passport. Foreign students are not required to register with the Selective Service, hence if there were no record of his registration, this would raise questions about Obama’s legal status at that time. Was his status that of a U.S. citizen or a foreign student, possibly with dual passports?

A paper copy of Obama’s selective service registration card, called a form "SSS-1," was obtained days before the 2008 elections through a FOIA request by Stephen Coffman, a retired Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agent. A spokesperson from ICE, an agency of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, confirmed that Coffman retired from the agency in June, 2007

Investigators with the Cold Case Posse concluded that the copy of Obama’s Selective Service registration card obtained through Coffman’s FOIA request was "fraudulently created." Those findings were announced at a March 1, 2012 press conference in Phoenix.

"The selective service card (copy) that we showed in our press conference," said Zullo in an interview with radio host Frank Beckmann, "We believe that document was fraudulently created to give the appearance that it was accepted [by Selective Service] in 1980.

"That has some far reaching implications, implications that Barack Obama himself -- at some point in time -- may have to answer for."

Richard S. Flahavan, Selective Service System Associate Director of Public and Intergovernmental Affairs, confirmed in a March 2009 letter to Kenneth Allen that Obama did register for selective service on July 29, 1980 at a Honolulu, Hawaii post office.

The original microfilm record of that should be in the care of the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA). An independent review of the entire microfilm record, not just Obama’s record, would confirm whether the record supplied by Flahavan to Coffman and Allen is a true copy of the original document.

Review of official documents posted on the websites of the Government Printing Office, NARA, and the Selective Service System confirms that if Obama registered for selective service in 1980, the original paper card would have likely been destroyed, but only after being transferred into original microfilm records, microfilm record copies, and computer storage systems.

If the status of those microfilm copies are now "nonrecord" rather than "record," as would be the case under the new requirement, most of those records could be permanently destroyed.

Even if the microfilm copy at the Selective Service System Data Management Center in Illinois has been destroyed, however, the original microfilm should be held at one of the Federal Record Centers, long term record facilities operated by NARA.

A popular film scenario has an investigator looking for a document confronted by hundreds of shelves filled with thousands of boxes full of documents. If the Cold Case Posse goes looking for Obama’s record, the change in classification might make its task akin to finding a specific piece of hay in a haystack

Sheriff Joe Demands Obama Draft Registration

Jerome Corsi is reporting that Sheriff Joe Arpaio intends to continue his investigation of Barack Obama’s eligibility. Arpaio's Cold Case Posse has pressed the director of the Selective Service System not to destroy any microfilm records that may yet exist of Obama’s 1980 draft registration form.

In an emergency letter Wednesday to Selective Service System Director Lawrence Romo, Mike Zullo, the lead investigator in the Cold Case Posse, asked for reassurance that the microfilm records still exist.

"We would like to be assured of the disposition of the microfilm reel or reels containing President Obama’s Selective Service registration form," Zullo wrote. "Please indicate whether or not you have possession of the microfilm reel or reels containing President Obama’s records or access to them."

The concerns were raised after Arpaio’s office received official confirmation from the Selective Service System that Obama’s paper draft registration records have been destroyed after being microfilmed.

In addition, an article published Monday by the Washington Times "Communities" social journalism section reported new Selective Service privacy rules might allow existing microfilm records to be destroyed as well.

Zullo expressed concern the microfilm records of Obama’s draft registration form might already have been destroyed.

"In the unfortunate event the microfilm reel or reels containing President Obama’s Selective Service registration form has been destroyed, can you please advise of the date the records were destroyed and the location at which they were destroyed," he asked.

Zullo’s letter gave Romo 10 business days within receipt of the letter to respond.

Romo, who was appointed director to the U.S. Selective Service System in 2009 by President Obama, reports directly to the president.

Selective Service admits destruction

On March 28, Arpaio wrote Romo a letter directly asking if the Selective Service System still retained the original paper and ink copy of Obama’s draft registration form.

"If your office has the original, authentic Selective Service registration form for Barack Obama from July 29, 1980, please indicate whether or not you have possession of this document," Arpaio wrote. "If the document is in your possession, please make it available for inspection by my Sheriff’s Office investigators. We will travel to your facility to analyze it."

On April 3, Richard S. Flahavan, associate director of public and intergovernmental affairs for the Selective Service System, responded to Arpaio with a letter indicating the agency had destroyed Obama’s original paper and ink draft registration form.

"The simple response is no; it was destroyed in 1980," Flahavan wrote. "Per agency policy and practice, when a Selective Service System record is created from the registration card, the card is microfilmed and the paper card is then destroyed. This has been our policy for more than 30 years."

Is the microfilm safe?

In the Communities @Washington Times article, Alan Jones noted that the Selective Service System published new privacy rules in the Federal Register Sept. 20, 2011, four days after WND reported Sept. 16, 2011, that Arpaio had commissioned the Cold Case Posse to open an inquiry with full subpoena power into the alleged forgery of several Obama identity documents, including his long-form birth certificate and his Selective Service draft registration form.

Jones article noted it was the first update to Selective Service privacy regulations in 11 years.

The key change is that the new regulations reclassify the status of draft registration forms from "record copies" to "non-record copies," with the proviso that "non-record copies" are subject to disposal.

The new privacy regulations further allow the Selective Service System to destroy microfilm copies of Selective Service registration forms under certain circumstances.

"Based on my observations, research, experience and training, it is my belief that the Selective Service registration card I received under the Freedom of Information Act under the name of Barack Obama has been altered."
