Chicago Tribune covers birth certificate issue - with a front page image of the COLB!
Chicago Tribune ^ | Dec 3, 2008 | Sara Olkon and James Janega

Posted on 12/03/2008 6:55:10 AM PST by rjp2005

"Cases challenging Barack Obama's citizenship have been tossed out in several states, and Hawaiian officials have vouched for his birth certificate. That didn't stop an activist from spending "tens of thousands" on Tribune ads."

Notice how it doesn't mention that other court cases are STILL awaiting rulings in other states. Amazing that their reporting is so shallow they failed to produce any information for the reading public about the Donofrio case before SCOTUS, or Keyes attempt in CA, etc. Amazing level of bias, but it is Chicago after all....

And this is only to say that a Birth Certificate supposedly exists, right? This isn’t the ACTUAL birth certificate?

Isn't this the same doc that was posted on the web site that was deemed to be a forgery?

MSM is shameless.

Cases challenging Barack Obama's citizenship have been tossed out in several states, and Hawaiian officials have vouched for his birth certificate Way to bring only half the facts there so called journalists. Hawaiian officials have NOT vouched for his birth certificate, but why should the Chicago Suckup not get facts confused? Especially when it promotes lies about The Liar.

No mention of how much Obama spent on legal fees.

This is not reporting - it’s pure propaganda.

I suppose they feel they need to address, and “spin,” the story, since it’s not going away.

I may be wrong, but didn’t the author of the COLB forgery come forward and admit that it was a forgery? How can the newspaper print it as something real? This isn’t just bias, this is aiding and abetting.

No, it’s not. It’s just a computer generated doc issued by the State of Hawaii to cover the basic facts, not the “official” original document, nor a photocopy of it......

And it didn't stop Obama from hiring 3 law firms and spending hundreds of thousands of dollars to hide his birth certificate from the American public. Amazing lack of curiosity on the part of a MSM. Actually it is not lack of curiosity - it is fear that drives them.

I may not know the details fully but why is the revision in the lower left corner have a revision date of Nov, 2001? And why the word LASER?

Can someone tell me how in 1961 this would be on the ORIGINAL document?

My birth certificate from Boston is 5 years younger, more advanced than Hawaii was in record keeping yet looks like its from the 1800’s.

Somthing stinks here.

The local radio talking head in Columbus, OH, Joel Riley, is talking about this now. He’s apparently buying into the garbage spewed by the Tribune. Here’s his e-mail: JoelRiley@610wtvn.com Any freepers feel like educating him? I have, but one e-mail is likely to get lost in the shuffle.

Don’t be too hard on him. He’s really pretty good, usually pretty clear thinking and usually on our side of the issues. He’s just been duped, as have many other good people. Educate, don’t berate...

Challenge Joel Riley to find any other Hawaiian citizen born in 1961 to produce a COLB that lists “African” under race

tick tick tick

(ironically the forger could not bring him or herself to even type the word “negro”)

When did “African” become a race???

The mother is listed as “Caucasian”

Either the father should be listed as “Negro” or “Negroid” (as was the way it was done in 1961) or the mother should’ve been listed as “American” to follow the father’s listing...

This don’t wash....

Or at least allow the release of his COLB to anyone that requests it from Hawaii. After all, what privacy issues is he protecting ? He supposedly released the exact document already for the world to see.

Hi Freepers,
I am just trying to spread the word about a fellow Freeper’s web site and the Freedom March Organization. Joe Thunder started the organization and the link is below. Perhaps you have heard the Joe Thunder program on Plains Radio Network. Please visit and read about the mission of the Freedom March Organization. Perhaps you might want to join and help in any way you can. I am helping by spreading the word about events that will take place. Right now we are focusing on showing support for Leo Donofrio, Cort Wrotnowski, and Alan Keyes in their efforts to bring the truth to light and save our Constitution.

Joe Thunder has organized a Freedom March for this coming Friday in Washington D.C. to bring attention to the important decision to by made by our honorable Supreme Court Justices. Please read about the details at the Freedom March link below. Perhaps you know folks who live in the D.C. area who would want to join other Freepers and Patriots to show support for Leo Donofrio and Cort Wrotnowski in hopes there cases will be heard.

Please spread the word to Freepers you know and anyone on your email list who you know would want to help.
Please post the link on your Free Republic state board to help spread the word. Thanks so much! seekthetruth

The “Fake” COLB they published here is not the Birth Certificate we want...we want what is referred to as the Long Form.

The Long Form and the COLB can somewhat be compared to your car’s Title and the car’s DMV registration - one detailed and one abbreviated (Not the same in every state - YMMV).

The COLB just says you were born, whom you were born to and when you were born. It can be printed upon request and is printed on new paper each time. A COLB was available even then to mothers who birthed children outside of Hawaii if they had resided in Hawaii within the past year (I believe - someone will correct me if wrong). It is very abbreviated.

The long form, which we want as proof, lists ALL the details - Where born, what hospital, etc, etc, etc...details.

Along with the fact we have a proven fraud in the COLB, we do not have the LONG FORM either.

Since this is in the uber0bama friendly Chicago Tribune, and as the ‘discussion’ of the SCOTUS is this Friday, could the 0bamites be feeling a tad worried about the results of the ‘discussion?’. Pre-emptive volley on their part?

AFAIK, the COLB is simply another way to dodge the question. It is easily forged, and it is still not the original, official record of birth date, time and place.

Thanks for posting that link to the Chicago Tribune article. I just sent them an email stating that that “COLB” has been debunked as a fake by several document experts, and that even the Hawaii Health Dept. stated that the document they have on file is different.

Has everyone read the articles on WorldNetDaily today? The Obama story is hitting the mainstream media, albeit slowly. Janet Porter is trying to raise money to put out a TV ad on Fox News produced by the same company that did Ron Polarik’s video. Great ad!

I think the Tribune figured they needed to say something because of the full-page open letter run by the “We the People Foundation.” But they didn’t have much to say, because we’re still all waiting for Obama to prove he was born here. I don’t think he can.

A third case is now on Justice Scalia’s desk from Connecticut...my great liberal state. Kudos to Cort Wrotnowski for persisting and getting through. Leo Donofrio feels that in some ways, Cort’s case is even stronger than his. I think the Supremes are going to consider this carefully and come through for the Constitution. There really is no other choice. I’m praying.
