Maybe you can provide links to prove any of the above?

I highly doubt it.

Here is a little light reading to help educate you ....

Barack Obama - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Quote:
Obama is a graduate of Columbia University and Harvard Law School, where he was the first African American president of the Harvard Law Review. He was a community organizer in Chicago before earning his law degree. He worked as a civil rights attorney in Chicago and also taught constitutional law at the University of Chicago Law School from 1992 to 2004.
Obama served three terms in the Illinois Senate from 1997 to 2004. Following an unsuccessful bid for a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives in 2000, Obama ran for United States Senate in 2004. His victory from a crowded field in the March 2004 Democratic primary raised his visibility, and his prime-time televised keynote address at the Democratic National Convention in July 2004 made him a rising star nationally in the Democratic Party. He was elected to the U.S. Senate in November 2004 by the largest margin in Illinois history.
Obama was born on August 4, 1961 in Honolulu Hawaii.

Based on his parents getting married in Feb 1961, they obviously chose to marry when his mother discovered she was pregnant. The timeframe being less than 9 months.

Quote:
Barack Obama was born at the Kapi'olani Medical Center for Women & Children in Honolulu, Hawaii, United States,[6] to Stanley Ann Dunham,[7] an American of mainly English descent from Wichita, Kansas,[8][9][10] and Barack Obama, Sr., a Luo from Nyang’oma Kogelo, Nyanza Province, Kenya. Obama's parents met in 1960 in a Russian language class at the University of Hawaii at Mānoa, where his father was a foreign student on scholarship.[11][12] The couple married on February 2, 1961,[13] and Barack was born later that year. His parents separated when he was two years old and they divorced in 1964.[12] Obama's father returned to Kenya and saw his son only once more before dying in an automobile accident in 1982.[14]
Here is his history of his move to Chicago:

Quote:
After four years in New York City, Obama moved to Chicago, where he was hired as director of the Developing Communities Project (DCP), a church-based community organization originally comprising eight Catholic parishes in Greater Roseland (Roseland, West Pullman and Riverdale) on Chicago's far South Side. He worked there as a community organizer from June 1985 to May 1988.[27][29] During his three years as the DCP's director, its staff grew from one to thirteen and its annual budget grew from $70,000 to $400,000. He helped set up a job training program, a college preparatory tutoring program, and a tenants' rights organization in Altgeld Gardens.[30

QUOTE:
Obama's Muslim background

Are the American people ready for an elected president who was
educated in a Madrassa as a young boy and has not been forthcoming
about his Muslim heritage?

This is the question Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton's camp is asking
about Sen. Barack Obama.

An investigation of Mr. Obama by political opponents within the
Democratic Party has discovered that Mr. Obama was raised as a Muslim
by his stepfather in Indonesia. Sources close to the background check,
which has not yet been released, said Mr. Obama, 45, spent at least
four years in a so-called Madrassa, or Muslim seminary, in Indonesia.

"He was a Muslim, but he concealed it," the source said. "His
opponents within the Democrats hope this will become a major issue in
the campaign."

When contacted by Insight, Mr. Obama's press secretary said he would
consult with "his boss" and call back. He did not.

Sources said the background check, conducted by researchers connected
to Senator Clinton, disclosed details of Mr. Obama's Muslim past. The
sources said the Clinton camp concluded the Illinois Democrat
concealed his prior Muslim faith and education.

"The background investigation will provide major ammunition to his
opponents," the source said. "The idea is to show Obama as deceptive."

In two best-selling autobiographies--"The Audacity of Hope: Thoughtson
Reclaiming the American Dream" and "Dreams from My Father: A Story of
Race and Inheritance"--Mr. Obama, born in Honolulu where his parents
met, mentions but does not expand on his Muslim background, alluding
only to his attendance at a "predominantly Muslim school."

The sources said the young Obama was given the name Hussein by his
Muslim father, which the Illinois Democrat rarely uses in public.

His father was black and came from Kenya. Mr. Obama's mother, the
daughter of a farmer, came from Wichita, Kansas. Mr. Obama's parents
divorced when he was two years old. His father returned to Kenya.

Later, Mr. Obama's mother married an Indonesian student and the family
moved to Jakarta. Mr. Obama returned to Hawaii when he was 10 to live
with his maternal grandparents.

The sources said the background check concerned Mr. Obama's years in
Jakarta. In Indonesia, the young Obama was enrolled in a Madrassa and
was raised and educated as a Muslim. Although Indonesia is regarded as
a moderate Muslim state, the U.S. intelligence community has
determined that today most of these schools are financed by the Saudi
Arabian government and they teach a Wahhabi doctrine that denies the
rights of non-Muslims.

Although the background check has not confirmed that the specific
Madrassa Mr. Obama attended was espousing Wahhabism, the sources said
his Democratic opponents believe this to be the case--and are seeking
to prove it. The sources said the opponents are searching for evidence
that Mr. Obama is still a Muslim or has ties to Islam.

Mr. Obama attends services at Trinity United Church of Christ in
Chicago's South Side. However, he is not known to be a regular
parishioner.

"Obama's education began a life-long relationship with Islam as a
faith and Muslims as a community," the source said. "This has been a
relationship that contains numerous question marks."

The sources said Mr. Obama spent at least four years in a Muslim
school in Indonesia. They said when Mr. Obama was 10, his mother and
her second husband separated. She and her son returned to Hawaii.

"Then the official biography begins," the source said. "Obama never
returned to Kenya to see relatives or family until it became
politically expedient."

In both of his autobiographies, Mr. Obama characterizes himself as a
Christian--although he describes his upbringing as mostly secular.

In "The Audacity of Hope," Mr. Obama says, "I was not raised in a
religious household." He describes his mother as secular, but says she
had copies of the Bible, the Koran and the Bhagavad Gita in their
home.

Mr. Obama says his father was "raised a Muslim, but by the time he met
my mother he was a confirmed atheist...." Mr. Obama also describes his
father as largely absent from his life. He says his Indonesian
stepfather was "skeptical" about religion and "saw religion as not
particularly useful in the practical business of making one's way in
the world ...."

In the book, Mr. Obama briefly addresses his education in Indonesia.
"During the five years that we would live with my stepfather in
Indonesia, I was sent first to a neighborhood Catholic school and then
to a predominantly Muslim school; in both cases, my mother was less
concerned with me learning the catechism or puzzling out the meaning
of the muezzin's call to evening prayer than she was with whether I
was properly learning my multiplication tables."

Oh and by the way RD5050 you might want to read this as well,

QUOTE:

A military base is not considered as a part of the United States. McCain was born on a military base, however one is recognized a naturalize citizen if one is born on a military base and both parents are US citizens. But the First Congress, on March 26, 1790, approved an act that declared, "The children of citizens of the United States that may be born beyond sea, or outside the limits of the United States, shall be considered as natural-born citizens of the United. Both his parents were citizens of the United States; therefore McCain is a natural-born citizen.

Barack Obama is not legally a U.S. Natural-born citizen according to the law on the books at the time of his birth, which falls between “December 24, 1952 to November 13, 1986. Presidential office requires a natural-born citizen if the child was not born to two U.S. Citizen parents, which of course is what exempts John McCain though he was born in the Panama Canal. US Law very clearly stipulates: “…If only one parent was a U.S. Citizen at the time of your birth, that parent must have resided in the United States for at least ten years, at least five of which had to be after the age of 16.” Barack Obama’s father was not a U.S. Citizen and Obama’s mother was only 18 when Obama was born, which means though she had been a U.S. Citizen for 10 years, (or citizen perhaps because of Hawaii being a territory) the mother fails the test for being so for at least 5 years **prior to** Barack Obama’s birth, but *after* age 16. It doesn’t matter *after* . In essence, she was not old enough to qualify her son for automatic U.S. Citizenship. At most, there were only 2 years elapsed since his mother turned 16 at the time of Barack Obama’s birth when she was 18 in Hawaii. His mother would have needed to have been 16+5= 21 years old, at the time of Barack Obama’s birth for him to have been a natural-born citizen. As aforementioned, she was a young college student at the time and was not. Barack Obama was already 3 years old at that time his mother would have needed to have waited to have him as the only U.S. Citizen parent. Obama instead should have been naturalized, but even then, that would still disqualify him from holding the office

*** Naturalized citizens are ineligible to hold the office of President. *** Though Barack Obama was sent back to Hawaii at age 10, all the other info does not matter because his mother is the one who needed to have been a U.S. Citizen for 10 years prior to his birth on August 4, 1961, with 5 of those years being after age 16. Further, Obama may have had to have remained in the country for some time to protect any citizenship he would have had, rather than living in Indonesia.

According to FindLaw.com, which is cited by Geraghty, the requirements that were in force from Dec. 24, 1952 to Nov. 13, 1986, encompassing the time of Obama's birth, state, "If only one parent was a U.S. citizen at the time of your birth, that parent must have resided in the United States for at least 10 years, at least five of which had to be after the age of 16."
