It’s been reported that as a boy growing up in Louisiana he preferred to go by the name Bobby.
“Bobby” Jindal has been Governor of Louisiana since Jan. 2008.
Prior to serving as Governor he was a member of the U.S. House of Representatives (Louisiana – 1st District) from 2005 thru 2008.
His wife Supriya Jolly (they married in 1997) was born in New Delhi, India. Its been reported that she never really lived in India but rather that her parents (who are from India) were visiting in India when she was born. Apparently she’s spent almost her entire life living in Louisiana.
Bobby Jindal was conceived in India. He arrived in the United States when his mother was as an approximately five (5) months pregnant with him.
In 1970 his mother Raj Gupta (in India) was offered a scholarship to study at Louisiana State University. She informed the university that she couldn’t accept because she was pregnant. She changed her mind after she discovered that she would receive a month off at LSU for childbirth.
Raj Gupta and Bobby Jindal’s father, Amar Jindal, arrived in the United States on February 1, 1971. Their son was born approximately four (4) months later on June 10, 1971 at the Woman’s Hospital in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
In May 2011 Jindal released a certified copy of his original 1971 birth certificate (Certificate of Live Birth):
Jindal’s birth certificate includes signatures of the attending medical doctor as well as the local Registrar.
Something interesting and noteworthy which we learned recently is that Bobby Jindal’s wife Supriya Jolly worked for Monsanto (!?!?)
Monsanto is an agrochemical & agricultural biotechnology corporation. Monsanto is a giant and powerful American multinational entity which spends lots of money to influence members of US Congress.
Most Americans have probably heard of Monsanto because the corporation is steeped in controversy. Documentary films (e.g., Food Inc and The World According to Monsanto) have been made about them and they’ve dragged American farmers (and farmers across the globe) through the judicial system whenever they’ve found that their patented seeds have blown (as happens in nature) from one farmers field to another farmers field and are now growing without Monsanto’s permission. Most of the farmers who are hauled into court (and often then lose their farms) had no idea that Monsanto seeds were growing on their property.
Monsanto also claims ‘seed royalties.’ In other words, when you plant their seed and crops grow and, ultimately, produce new seeds those new seeds are also property of property of Monsanto.
We know that many readers here at WOBIK are ardent advocates of intellectual property rights and patent rights but come on…where does it end?
Associate Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas worked as an attorney for Monsanto.
Our brief and compact article here regarding Bobby Jindal isn’t the proper venue for to write a thorough report on Monsanto. If you’ve never heard of Monsanto (I doubt it) then please consider taking a few minutes of your time to google them.
At any rate, we found it noteworthy and interesting that Bobby Jindal’s wife worked for Monsanto. Much the same way that we found it interesting and noteworthy that Ted Cruz’s wife works for Goldman Sachs (?!?!)– an American multinational investment banking firm that engages in global investment banking, securities, investment management, and other financial services primarily with institutional clients.
Not to mention that Cruz’s wife lived in Kenya as a child (?!?!)
In closing, what are your thoughts regarding Bobby Jindal and the eligibility issue? Is he eligible to be President? Directly below are some points to consider before passing judgement:
• Jindal, much like Marco Rubio, was born born to non-US citizen parents.
• Something very unique about Jindal’s birth scenario is that not only was he born before his parents became US citizens but that he was ‘conceived’ in India months before his parents ever set foot in the United States.
• We’ve noted in the past that Birthers are a predominantly pro-life bunch and believe that life begins at time of conception. If that’s true then what role, if any, does conception play in defining what a natural born citizen is?
• Jindal’s wife was born in India
