$100,000 offered for proof of eligibility
Businessman asks how president can issue orders ‘if he is not qualified’

A man who runs a silver business and offers stock investment advice has announced he’s offering a reward of $100,000 for proof meeting that Barack Obama is a “natural born” citizen of the United States and, therefore, eligible to be president.
Jason Hommel announced the offer on his website.
“I, Jason Hommel, promise that I will give $100,000 to the first person who can prove to my satisfaction that Barack Obama, acting as president of the United States, is a ‘natural born’ citizen of the USA, which is a qualification to hold the office as indicated in the U.S. Constitution,” he wrote.
“Please prove that Obama is a ‘natural born’ US citizen, and put to rest the claims in lawsuits, as wnd.com reports, ‘that include contentions Obama was born in Kenya, wasn’t a ‘natural born’ citizen because of his father’s Kenyan citizenship, was a dual citizen and that his mother wasn’t old enough to transmit citizenship at birth. In addition, his citizenship is clouded by his move as a child to Indonesia and apparent adoption by an Indonesian citizen who married his mother.’”
Hommel told WND the offer has produced for him a flood of e-mails but no proof.
“I’ve gotten links to Hawaii’s recent press release, where they said, ‘trust us,’” he said. “I have received a lot of hate mail from people calling me a racist.”
But he contends there’s been no proof.

“I think our government has run amok, and they need to be held to account,” he said about his motive for the offer, which he said is legitimate.
“Money is relative,” he said.
In his offer, he said, “I’m optimistic that this might be the most important use of $100,000 that I’ve ever offered.”
“I know that WND had offered $10,000,” he said. ” I was in a position to offer 10 times that amount, so I figured I would.”

Hommel was referring to the offer from WND Editor and Chief Executive Officer Joseph Farah for a $10,000 reward to anyone who can prove he or she was present at Obama’s birth.
“Barack Obama claims to have been born in Honolulu Aug. 4, 1961,” explained Farah. “His entire constitutional claim to the presidency rests on this premise. Yet, he refuses to release a copy of his long-form birth certificate – the only document that could possibly corroborate his claim. Therefore, in the interest of truth, justice and the Constitution, I am making the extraordinary offer to entice someone to come forward with the facts of his birth – whether it took place in Hawaii or elsewhere.”
Hommel said he wants to help stop the loss of freedoms in the U.S.
