It makes all conservatives look bad which is why so many conservatives like Coulter, Batchelor, American Spectator, Hot Air Pundit, American Thinker, etc are trashing on the cranks that keep hanging on to this “story”.

I see you need absolution.

He took over for Drudge, but could anyone refute this for me:

Title 8, Sec. 1401 of the US Code defines “Natural Born Citizen” to include those born outside the US, as long as one parent is a citizen who lived in the US for more than five years. (For those who don’t know, the US Code fills in many of the gaps in the law left by the US Constitution.)

That is what some reality based commenter are trying to say to defend Obama’s standing as president.

The problem is that the mainstream media and the Republicrat elites have cried “wolf” too many times.

They told us we were all nutcases and conspiracy theorists for thinking there was anything to:

Travelgate

Whitewater

Gennifer Flowers

Clinton’s cocaine and marijuana use while governor

Vince Foster death

Paula Jones

Lewinsky

John Huang and Chinagate

Web Hubbell

Purloined FBI files

Kathleen Willey

Sandy Burglar’s socks

Marc Rich and other presidential pardons

and on and on and on.

And they told us we were nutcases for NOT believing absurd conspiracies and baseless claims about

Dick Cheney and Halliburton

George W Bush and Saudi or Iraqi oil

George W Bush and the National Guard

George W Bush “stole” election

Panties on heads at Abu Ghraib

Scooter Libby and Valerie Plame

George W Bush and Hurricane Katrina

and on and on and on.

Why should we believe anything the MSM or the elites have to say on the subject of conspiracy theories?

Why should we be demeaned and stigmatized for merely demanding transparency and the release of all birth, school, college, law school, state senate and other records that pertain to the highest public servant and the most powerful person in the land?

And when he continues to conceal these records, why are we not entitled to draw the most adverse inferences against him from his refusal to release the information?

The simple fact of the matter is that Obama, as the President of the United States, owes the American people the priviledge of seeing his actual pedigree. Obama is an enigma. America knows almost nothing about him except what Bill Ayers wrote in Obama's autobiography.

Frankly if I have to be considered a kook for being a skeptic on Obama's supposed history, then I am happy to be numbered among the kooks.

Obama will never release his birth certificate. He's hiding something and the law and the MSM will allow him to continue to hide it by attacking those who have questions about it and accusing them of being the functional equivalent of Klan Members. The more outrageous the accusations against the Obama skeptics become, the more skeptical I become.

No case not closed, he has not shown his vault bc with the name of the hospital and the doctor who delivered him, All that has been shown is a form with SOME of the birth info on it. Mac showed his vault bc, Obama needs to do same. And it is not nutty to ask that he provide this info. Its nutty NOT to ask for it.

I bet any birther 10 to 1 odds any amount of money that his BC will say birthplace “Honolulu” when revealed.

I bet it will show he wasn't born in a hospital but needed a witness that claimed Obama was "born in Hawaii".

Lets see the supporting statements and other documentation that underlies his birth certificate.

I will tell you where he was born when I see the vault bc. I will also tell you the hospital where he was born and the name of the doctor who delivered him. Until then, I don’t know. But what I really want to know, and the main reason for all this hoopla is.....WHY IS OBAMA SPENDING SO MUCH, RESCINDING ORDERS, WASTING TIME, FIGHTING THIS WHEN MAC SHOWED HIS VAULT BC WITHIN DAYS OF BEING ASKED?

“Obama released a COLB that says he was born in Hawaii. The COLB is based on his original long form birth certificate which he refuses to release. Instead he had Fukino come out and confirm that the COLB matched the info in the original document. But the sin is one of omission.”

Nothing has been omitted that related to eligibility, as the COLB has the listed place of birth. They have answered one question:
Where was Obama born?

“but he is definitely hiding something.”
So what? On what basis can you assert he was born anywhere else?

“Besides why should we know what hospital he was born so we can erect a statue in his honor right.”
His birth hospital in Honolulu is already a tour guide destination. Do some googling.

A curious phenomenon, that this harping grows shriller. Like a walk in the jungle at night — just before the rays of dawn, the incessant dull buzz of insects turns into a brilliant crescendo of a cacophony as if a swarm is upon you, and yet the sound is without any substance and dies into a silence just as the light breaks.

As someone who posted on Free Republic stated better than I, the President of the United States controls the hyper-power of the planet. For the SRM or Congress to not vet his eligibility for the job would be completely irresponsible. Something akin to say, not reading a trillion dollar health care bill, or perhaps, a multi-trillion dollar cap and trade bill.

US code !401 I’ve seen it posted about 2 dozen times over the last year.

It addresses ‘US Nationals and Citizens’. Nowhere will you find the phrase “Natural Born Citizen” written in the statute.

What is also striking about this mutation is that, as a talking vector, you do not need to endorse the birther template that the president was born of an 18-year-old girl who raced to Mombasa in time to deliver in an unnamed setting.

Raced? Why did she have to race? If the data provided to the State of Hawaii was from Ann Dunham or Grandma Whitey anything could have happened. Obama could have been born as early as March,1961. And he might have been born anywhere. That's the way the CnOLB could have worked in those days. *

If you were a Luo Kenyan tribesman and your new bride was about to give birth to your son, you might want to return to the homeland for the birth. Did he?

* if my understanding of these facts is incorrect I will retract and apologize for them

Perhaps he really was born in Hawaii and his parents still went about certifying it in a odd way for some reason — but he is definitely hiding something. Besides why should we know what hospital he was born so we can erect a statue in his honor right.

So far so good. Perhaps instead he was born in Kenya but his father was really Frank Davis, a citizen. Barak Sr. left soon after birth as if he thought he wasn't the father.

What amazes me is all the Republicans acting like beaten dogs in this matter, not willing even to be agnostic about Obama's Natural Born status in the face of a lack of evideance.

If not, then Obama’s official birthplace *IS* Hawaii and even birthers are admitting it.

These are all untrue.

Wrong on this one.

Charlie Rose interviewed Tom Brokaw a week before the election...

ROSE: I don't know what Barack Obama's worldview is.

BROKAW: No, I don't, either.

ROSE: I don't know how he really sees where China is.

BROKAW: We don't know a lot about Barack Obama and the universe of his thinking about foreign policy.

ROSE: I don't really know. And do we know anything about the people who are advising him?

BROKAW:Yeah, it's an interesting question.

Very stupid to call birthers stupid as well--if the point is quell the flames.

This thing is building very fast. Its not going away. Its building because obots have a president who is not natural born. The set up here is for a very serious constitutional crises. Once the constitutional crises comes--I don't know how it will break.

The library of congress has recently started including the Obama File in its historic collections of Internet materials related to the Presidential Transition during a Time of Crises. The Obama File holds that Obama's birth certificate as presented online is bogus.

Now this story is starting to change. Some liberals in an open acknowledgement of Obama's problems are starting to call for a change in the constitution.Liberal defenders of Obama in full retreat on Birth CertificateNow The LA Times Wants To Amend the Constitution Rather Than Have Obama Show His Birth Certificate. (Translation: Yeah he’s not a Natural Born Citizen — As the Constitution Requires.)

The first black president in America’s history, and the man himself is obfuscating where exactly he was born. An history monument or marker would be placed where it occurred, but Obama doesn’t seem to be able to categorically state in which hospital, or in what home, he was born. The case is hardly closed. The case, in fact, is screaming: something is wrong here!

That would be true if there were no other possibilities. If the birth facts were supplied to the State of Hawaii back in 1961 by Ann Dunham or Grandma Whitey then what Fukino saw could be bogus as hell.

Unraveling this controversy begins with the vault copy being released. (Or all the rest of the heads being stuck in sand.)

I will bet you $10.00 that his BC, School Records, Columbia Records and his Harvard Records have something on them that would devastate his Presidency. John McCain didn't cover up that he graduated near the bottom of his class; he gave his long form BC within a day of being asked.

When Sarah Palin was nominated as McCain's running-mate, the SRM gave her the equivalent of a journalistic enema. This is basic eligibility and background paperwork. There is no in depth investigation of who Obama is, by the NY Times, ABC/NBC/CBS, anyone.

Anyone who has something to hide, can be manipulated and blackmailed. We are the most powerful country on the planet. Does that not beg to properly vet our elected officials? Especially the one who holds the nuclear football?

“Devastate” is subjective. the metric here is impeachment and removal. I will bet you any amount you want that Obama will not be impeach on the basis of any of this.

Does he have stuff in these records to hide? Sure. That’s probably why they didnt come out in the campaign. But that doesnt make Obama ineligible or make those matters ‘devastating’.

“There is no in depth investigation of who Obama is, by the NY Times, ABC/NBC/CBS, anyone.” What, one hour of NBC following Obama like a puppy dog wasnt ‘in depth’?!? LOL. Of course the Obamedia isnt doing its job.

“his is basic eligibility and background paperwork. “ Should have been done in 2007. a bit late now. I recall how only Hannity would talk about Rev Wright, nobody else on TV would talk about that, until it broke open.

“Especially the one who holds the nuclear football?”
And he’s not a good pitcher either!

I called Obama a liar an hour, so yeah he should fire me.
I am about to call him a socialist in 5 minutes.

But right now ... I’d point out that the only ‘pathetic’ thing is your name-calling.

Keep an open mind and stop falling into the conspiracy theorists trap of rejecting contrary evidence as based on lies. You have no basis to call this state of hawaii official a liar except that they said something that fractures your conspiracy theory. The “word of some government bureaucrat” is not all the proof that Obama was actually born in Hawaii, it is one piece of several pieces of evidence:
1. Stanley Dunham and Barack Obama Sr lived, met and were students in Honolulu. That was there hometown. As students, they had little money, so the natural conclusion would be that they would have very likely had their baby in Honolulu.
2. Marriage in Feb (shotgun wedding?), baby in August; honeymoon was on another hawaiian island; if they were going to travel anywhere else, THAT would have been the time to do it.
3. Newspaper announcement of birth one week after birth, Aug 4.
4. Family recollections that he was born in Honolulu.
5. The COLB
6. Obama obtained US passports for overseas travel. He needed valid birth certification that proved US citizenship to do so.
7. State officials from Hawaii vouched for his birth records being on file and him being born in Hawaii.

So, as I said, I’ll bet any birther 10 to 1 odds, any money, that any vault BC will show his birthplace as Honolulu. Are you on?

Impeachment and removal with a Democrat Congress will not happen. Billae wasn't removed with a Republican House and Senate.

Devastate to me means “render politically impotent”. I doubt very much that even if proven ineligible for the office, Obama would willingly leave. Look what's going on in Honduras with Zelaya. Obama supports Zelaya while he tramples the Honduran Constitution. This from a so-called Constitutional Scholar.

1. After all, one of Obama’s main priorities seems to be government access to the private records of his ordinary citizens.
Question: Is there legal any way to compel universities and government institutions to release this guy’s records?

2. Concerning his schools. Why hide his transcripts? OK, there’s supposition about radical ideas or maybe his grades weren’t so outstanding.

But maybe it’s something concrete? Like maybe he was a foreign exchange student?

It was the Hillary Clinton camp during the 2008 primary that first raised the questions about Obama’s birthplace. High-priced opposition research being what it is, the Clinton people probably amassed a pretty detailed history of Obama that contradicts his books—historical fiction the news media took as gospel. Hillary's Obama file likely contains evidence of indictable crimes from Obama’s Chicago days. But Hillary could only leak a hint here and there without Obama’s media minions resurrecting the Clintons’ 8-year crime spree. Batchelor parrots “conventional wisdom” because he can't exercise personal wisdom. His worldview comes from wetting his finger and holding it to the wind.

The “word of some government bureaucrat” is not all the proof that Obama was actually born in Hawaii, it is one piece of several pieces of evidence...

You call those items you posted "evidence"? They're conjecture and supposition, at best, and the jpeg of Obama's COLB can't be called evidence, because the actual document (if it exists as anything but electrons) has never been inspected by qualified experts, or officers of a court of law.

You are accepting hearsay, claims, and conjecture as evidence, and this is what makes your posts draw so much fire.

Real evidence would be Obama's LFBC, college records, primary school records, passports held, Annenberg Foundation records, Harvard Law Review writings, law practice records, Illinois Senate schedule, community organizer records, etc.

Until this enigma produces some or all of these items, we will continue to have NO evidence about his origins or his life before the US Senate.

Keep an open mind and stop falling into the conspiracy theorists trap...

The only conspiracy is the conspiracy of silence on the part of Barack Obama. We who are asking Mr. Obama to come clean with his past are making a very simple and legitimate request of someone who holds the highest position of authority in our country. He works for the American people. Not the other way around. This isn't Kenya.

Of course the statement of an official on the record is evidence.

That is not evidence. It's a statement. She did not make that statement while under oath in a court of law, but to the media.

Evidence is the LFBC - not statements of affirmation from government bureaucrats.

Use your head, man. If the BC is all that she and everyone on the left says it is, then there's absolutely no reason for Obama to continue to withhold it, is there?

As a matter of fact, if Obama's BC proves that he's a natural born citizen, and was born in Hawaii, then there's NEVER been a reason for him to withhold it, right?

So why has he withheld it all this time?

“The question was first raised by the Democrats about John McCain.”.

And a very bizarre episode that was, too.

Remember WHO sponsored the resolution in the Senate that “John McCain is eligible to be President of the USA???”

Barack H. Obama

Gee, I wonder why .......

The conduct of the Republicans in Congress since January has been astonishingly frail, as if the party had lost immunities to race-baiters like Limbaugh and Newt Gingrich, to liars like John Ensign and Mark Sanford, to yammerers like Eric Cantor and Michele Bachmann, to the goofily vain like Mitt Romney, Sarah Palin, and Mike Huckabee.

Thus spake John Batchelor, of whom I had not heard.

Only a flaming ass would call "Limbaugh and Newt Gingrich" "race-baiters"--

Having so identified himself as a sputtering Alinskyite, we may close the case on John Batchelor.

From anonymity to ignominy in a single blog.

The take-away is that ali Hussein is a fraud and his adherents are self-immolating.

On the basis that he refuses us to let us see his long form birth certificate, thus calling into question the means by which it was obtained. If was based on hospital records, great let’s see them. I’d love to know how much the Messiah weighed as he descended from his mother’s blessed womb. If it was based on his Mom’s or Grandparent’s word then what corraborating evidence is there? Hopefully more than one old goat who conveniently remembers a conversation with the OB/GYN? Why is it so difficult for him to provide basic info like this? I had my original birth cert in my junk drawer for years and will happily display it the day I decide to run for President. How about a pic of baby Barry and Mom in the hospital? I’ve got a million to share with the world if only CNN would run mine. If it turns out Obama is covering something up here his credibility will be forever damaged. If it turns out there are no issues with his original cert, then the media will say conservatives suck. Except they say that anyway.

My theory, and it is a theory, is that Barack Senior received notice from his father in Kenya that there was a requirement for his blessing to the marriage: he had to see the girl in person. If that happened, we have a pregnant girl in Kenya. And, what happened next? We have a Stanley Ann and baby Barack in Seattle, Washington without Barack Senior. Why is that? Well, my theory, and it is a theory, that Barack Senior's father, upon seeing pregnant Stanley Ann, rejected the union.

My question: can't anyone find any friends, classmates etc that have any answers to the question, where did Stanley Ann have her baby?
