Skip to comments.Obama's birth certificate - MoveOn.com takes on Lou Dobbs
Posted on 07/29/2009 5:04:03 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
MoveOn is taking on Lou Dobbs and CNN: Why is CNN promoting right-wing paranoid conspiracy theories about President Obama's birth certificate?
The fringe ideas of the so-called "birthers" have been thoroughly debunked.1 But CNN host Lou Dobbs perpetuates these myths by constantly talking about them on his shows and asserting that Obama still needs to "produce a birth certificate."
This is not responsible journalism. Our friends at Media Matters have launched a campaign calling on CNN to address its Lou Dobbs problem but a lot of us are going to have to speak out in order to get CNN's attention. Clicking here will add your name to their petition:
The petition reads:
Dobbs' relentless promotion of outlandish conspiracy theories about President Barack Obama's birth certificate seriously damages CNN's credibility. It is time for "The Most Trusted Name in News" to prove it deserves viewers' trust. We the undersigned demand CNN address its Lou Dobbs problem in a credible manner. Numerous reporters, including CNN's own hosts, have debunked the idea that Obama wasn't really born in the U.S.2
Nevertheless, Dobbs has repeatedly claimed on both his television and radio shows that the birth certificate the president posted online more than a year ago has "some issues"3and lashed out at "lily- livered lefties" who criticized him.
CNN's reputation is on the line. Their president, Jon Klein, has admitted that anyone who "is not convinced doesn't really have a legitimate beef"but he has refused to correct the situation.4
CNN needs to hear that allowing Dobbs' to promote "birther" conspiracy theories is simply irresponsible. Please sign the petition by clicking here:

Haven’t these idiots ever seen Star Wars? If they manage to take down Dobbs, they’ll only make him stronger.
I love in-fighting between the in-breeds
They should MOVE ON!

Everyone knows the FRAUD is not a natural born citizen .besides that he could also be an illegal alien that is why we need to see the legal long form original birth certificate he says Hawaii has .dont take your eye off the ball .)
Go here to watch the explanation ..
Did you know? Obamas half sister, born in Indonesia, has a Hawaiian Certification of Live Birth
July 27, 12:08 AM
Maya Soetoro was born to Indonesian businessman Lolo Soetoro and American cultural anthropologist Ann Dunham and half-sister to the 44th President of the United States , Barack Obama. While living in Indonesia, she was home schooled by her mother and then attended Jakarta International School and returned to Hawaii and attended the private Punahou School in Honolulu, Hawaii, graduating in 1988.
Besides being the First Sister Maya has a HawaiiaCertification of Live Birth despite be born in Jakarta Indonesia . Supposedly this certificate was used by the Daily Kos to forge an Obama version.
Anyone find it odd that Maya, undisputedly born in Indonesia , would have the same type of document as Barack Obama to forge?
The road to truth is long, and lined the entire way with annoying bastards.
Panic mode ramping up, threatening riots right around the corner next.
LOL! Responsible journalism would investigate where the Messiah was born and demand precise documentation.
ah someone has touched a nerve.
We now need more to mention this.
Has CNN unleashed Lou to create a story within a story that focuses more on the CNN problem-child than the 'non-story' birth certificate to gain viewers?
I've read where Lou has talked about it on Radio and CNN distanced itself from that non-CNN program.
Lou Dobbs is a big boy with a voice that is heard in the news media. Lou can take care of himself and some politicians may regret taking him on. Lou is starting to realize that he is hot on the trail of something big that the American people should know about and that can make him famous as a newsman.
Unless they threaten him or his family, he is not going to sit still and keep quiet. Welcome aboard Lou, the birthers need your voice.
it’s great that soros is giving legitimacy to this!
think about it...if there were nothing to it, why would anyone, including soros, give it the time of day.
soros is saying loudly/clearly “this is a threat that must be squashed”.
it must be a genuine threat
Uh, yep... Seems Soros only comes out when the going gets a bit rough for his foot soldiers. If Dobbs has placed himself in Soros’ sights, you can bet it’s because he’s pushing for the truth.
The simple fact is that 0bama has spent hundreds of thousands of dollars to hide an issue that could be resolved for less than a hundred bucks. Smell like last week’s fish, IMO.
It’s time to take back the country.
Well, this pretty well cinches it up for the majority of the public...
I, Dr. Chiyome Fukino, Director of the Hawaii State Department of Health, have seen the original vital records maintained on file by the Hawaii State Department of Health verifying Barack Hussein Obama was born in Hawaii and is a natural-born American citizen. I have nothing further to add to this statement or my original statement issued in October 2008 over eight months ago.
It appears to me is that Ginsburg and Soros are supporting efforts to create a government like the one that exterminated 6 million people of their own race.
If there’s no problem with that birth certificate, why has Omoslem spent $1 million on lawyers keeping it locked away?
Why don’t we SEE the birth certificate, admit the problem with it, then MOVE ON?
How can we MOVE ON before we see the document, and before Omoslem explains his $1 million investment in keeping it hidden from the American people?
Perhaps MoveOn.org should change its name to MoveOnNothingToSeeHere.org
How can George Soros ADMIT IN HIS AUTOBIOGRAPHY that he was a NAZI COLLABORATOR, then walk around taking positions on government issues?
Is this the man we want controlling the US Government?
Go check his autobiography — he ADMITS helping the NAZIS!
I need to get some range time in, just in case ...
When it hits, its going to make the Lewinsky deal look like the good old days when at least you could count on the democrat socialist crook in the White House to at least be an American, and not a crypto-muslim mystery man hell bent on crippling the United States economy.
Question for Soros:
“Mister Soros, when you were collaborating with the NAZIS, as you admit in your autobiography, if German citizens asked to verify Hitler’s documents (and thus his position), would you have supported vetting Hitler’s documents?”
Follow-Up Question for Soros:
“Mister Soros, if Hitler spent 1 million deutchmarks hiding his birth certificate, would you have asked to see it? Or would you have told Germany to ‘Move On?’”
