Skip to comments.A challenge to Bill O'Reilly
Posted on 07/29/2009 10:31:33 PM PDT by Red Steel
I have a challenge to my old buddy Bill O'Reilly put up or shut up!
You told your viewers this week that challenges to Barack Obama's constitutional eligibility are "bogus."
You claimed you and your news organization examined Obama's birth certificate last year and found it to be in order.
Can I ask a question, Bill? Why don't you simply reveal to your viewers exactly what you saw and what you found?
Fox News Channel's slogan is, "We report, you decide." Why don't you try actually reporting the story, rather than deciding for us?
Here's the story, Bill, whether you recognize it or not: Tens of millions of Americans have serious doubts about Obama's right to be in office. They are concerned that the system broke down and did not require proof of his constitutional qualifications. They don't want double talk like they've been getting from politicians and the media elite. They don't want more platitudinous assertions. They don't expect to have their well-informed suspicions be ridiculed by the likes of you, Shepherd Smith, Chris Matthews, the New York Times, the Associated Press and the rest of the media monopoly singing in harmony.
The American people have figured out what you apparently are unable or unwilling to discern: Obama's hiding something. One of the somethings he is undoubtedly hiding is his birth certificate.
I will go also out on a limb, Bill, and proclaim that you were, shall we say, disingenuous when you claimed to have inspected Obama's birth certificate. If you got your hands on it, why didn't you show it to your viewers? If your goal is, as you state, to put an end to a bogus story, the obvious way would have been to share with your audience what you saw.
I don't think you saw

I second the motion!
Bill O’Reily is a pompous idiot.
Didn’t This O’Reilly weasel say that he would do anything to support Obama?
I guess that means LIE, and use the media outlet he has access to- to fool the citizens of the nation and protect a fraudster who is set on destroying our country. O’Reilly is obviously a part of this conspiracy.
I am really shocked that O’Reily would lie like this. I mean everything else, being opinion, well it’s just that, opinion and we can disagree. But this is a flat out lie. I have a love/hate relationship with BO, but this is really disappointing because now I believe that he is a liar.
You said you have investigated this issue and have confirmed that Obama is a US citizen but I'm wondering what it is you saw? If it was the short form then I understand that Obama's sister, born in Indonesia, has the same short form certification from Hawaii so obviously this form is meaningless for "natural born" qualifications to be POTUS.
Why has Obama spent 1m to fight the lawsuits requesting him to reveal his long form birth certificate?
Why were Major Green's orders revoked when he sued to avoid being deployed to Afghanistan on the grounds that Obama is not a legal CIC? Of course revoking the orders was designed to put the lawsuit to rest. The Major has since been fired from his job at a defense contractor.
Why are so many of Obama's other records hidden? This makes it easy to imagine that he received special treatment as a foreign student and that there are other facts in his records that we should know and that Obama is hiding from us.
If I were running for POTUS I'd eagerly and proudly display my qualifications and yet Obama has hidden his.
This would be a HUGE story if Obama was not born in the US and yet the media makes fun (Alinsky style) of those who want simple questions answered - questions that should have been answered long ago by any honest person. The media thought Bush's 30 yr old DUI was earthshaking news but a possibly foreign born POTUS isn't? Something is very wrong.
Good for Joe Farah to step up....BOR has been spinning this lie for the past few days
Yes, BOR...where is the Obama BC?
Maybe now we should just ask BOR for Obama’s BC.....
Still, anytime somebody picks up a pen to whip that twit Bill O'Reilly, who is always eager to show his even handedness by trashing those in the right as well as those in the wrong, I have to stand up and cheer.
O’Reilly is playing a game of blissful ignorance. He doesn’t want to hear or look to closely afraid of what he might find. This gives him plausible deniability.
Then I guess you don't believe that the laws of the land should apply equally to everyone, including Obama. He MUST produce his birth certificate to prove he is eligible to hold office. It's really quite a simple requirement, one which he has spent over 1 million dollars resisting. If that doesn't raise a red flag for you, then nothing should. You should just go about your own business and never question anything that goes on around you. It's simply none of your business is all anyone should ever have to say to you.
Yeah, I can see that being the case with him. I guess you could say I would much rather him be a weenie instead of a liar. Either way friend, he is of no use to me now.
Go man Go.
BTW I agree.
He hates Conservatives more than the democrats, which is revealed here:
We know from that episode that he is a liar. And he is lying again when he says he has seen the birth certificate.... either that or he is too dumb to know a real birth certificate when he sees one.
As the article's author mentioned, "Bloviating, to use one of your favorite words, is no substitute for honest reporting."
Like Woodward and Bernstein for example.
Billy is an entertainer. Doesn’t care about the truth, just cares about his numbers.
This should wake many of his viewers up and start tuning him out.
One Harvard Jackazz looking out for another Harvard Jackazz.
Don’t worry Billy your invitation to the WH dance is in the mail.
I just e-mailed the article to him- email@example.com.
GREAT essay! Go to WND and read the entire story.
dead on. I suppose younger FReepers might not remember the, ‘just a third rate burglary’.
Well, apparently he doesn't, or he wouldn't be taking those helicopter rides to his 747, would he? It sure would have been nice if he would have been forced politically to show his birth certificate last fall, along with his academic and medical records. But he wasn't. I think he's perhaps hiding something, but it's much more likely something embarrassing than disqualifying; something like paternity. Or, perhaps he's just clever and waiting for the right time to make the birthers eat crow. Think that's a possibility? And I haven't been convinced that it really matters constitutionally where he was born. His mother was a white bread (communist floozy) Kansan, after all. I've heard the thing about his mother being to young to confer natural born status on him, but my response to that is "huh?".
It's really quite a simple requirement, one which he has spent over 1 million dollars resisting.
I hear that a lot too, but I've never seen an itemized list of expenses. You have one you cold forward to me?
If that doesn't raise a red flag for you, then nothing should.
It's intriguing, just like a lot of things about this poser are. But like I've wrote in the post that generated your breathless response: I've been around long enough and watched enough politics to know where things like this lead: almost always nowhere. I spent a good portion of the '90s convinced that any day the law wold catch up with the Clinton gang. Looking back on it, I was naive.
Would it be enormously entertaining and satisfying if this joker's downfall turned out to be some bombshell revelation like a 8 mm movie of his parents leaving the hospital with him in Kenya? Of course. Will it happen? No. Do I have better things to fret about, as a person with a life who is concerned about the ideas the man this country elected, legitimately or not, is trying to impose? Yes.
You should just go about your own business and never question anything that goes on around you. It's simply none of your business is all anyone should ever have to say to you.
Thanks for the condescension, Sonny. I just happen to agree with Dennis Prager that there's just nothing to gain, saving the nation wise, from pursuing this vigorously at this time. I'd love to see one state before 2012 requiring a birth certificate to get on the ballot, or something like that. I'd love to know if he ever had an Indonesian passport, which actually may be disqualifying. I find the topic entertaining, or I wouldn't be posting about it after midnight. I'm just telling all of you people getting all worked up about it that your are in for a let down.
Hey O’Reilly! When Bernie Goldberg , discussing the birth certificate on Wednesday, July 29, he referenced “the Chicago mafia in the White House”. You didn’t even blink. When you “investigated” ACORN, why did you suddenly stop when you came to the old deserted funeral parlor in New Orleans?
BORe stated that he has seen president X’s birth certificate. He must be referring to the one that classifies X’s race as African, because to view the real one without the expressed permission of The Buraq would indicate that a crime occurred, wouldn’t it BORe?
He also cited the news paper reports of X’s birth as evidence that he is a Natural Born Citizen. BORe, you can’t possibly be this stupid and lazy can you? Do you take me for a fool, BORe?
I also found it funny when the beautiful and intelligent Megan Kelly told him to quit shutting her down and shut that useless, stuck-up, pompous oaf the **** up. She should have your job, Bill, because you, sir, are utterly worthless.
You have any cash you'd like to lay down on whether a resignation or removal from office ever comes from this?
O’Reilly and ilk are stalking horses of the press, put out there to pretend that there’s an alternative to the MSNBC Olbermanns for example. He isn’t for real, and when something really meaningful is at stake, he is quick to join the other side.
“I’ve heard the thing about his mother being to young to confer natural born status on him, but my response to that is “huh?”.”
The laws at the time (and still on the books today IIRC) stated something along the lines that citizenship could be conveyed only if one or both parents were a resident in the United States for five years past their 14th birthday. That would mean his mother would have had to have been 19 at the time of barry’s birth, but she was only 18 at the time.
All the grownups know that ain't gonna happen. But, I'm finding it enormously entertaining to watch the entire media and political apparatus vehemently, almost hysterically assert a patent untruth. I bet that almost all of them are simply lazy, and actually believe that the computer printout 0's team provided really is a BC, when tens of millions of ordinary schlubs in flyover country have learned, dispositively, that it is not.
I don't think for a minute that the real, actual, righteous BC sitting in the vault in Honolulu contains any disqualifying information. But that's not even the point anymore. We KNOW that 0 has not released his BC, and we get to watch these characters try their version of "Who ya gonna believe, me or your lying eyes>" It's friggin' hilarious, I tell you!
I would agree, totally.
Sure. I'll bet you $50 that you said "never turn out satisfactorily" rather than "will not turn out satisfactorily".
Those requirements apply to a female us citizen married to a foreigner. It is not at all clear that she was married when Obama was born is it? He did not release a copy of the marriage certificate, did he?
If not married, the female needs only to have been physically present for 12 months at some point prior to the birth.
Your post pretty much echoed my sentiment. The birthers will pursue this for no good outcome. He'll never produce the long form, and these people have wasted their time on a fruitless quest. Much better to attack Obama for the things he's doing to the country than spend time wishing his birth certificate would be on display.
I thought Lou Dobbs was going to be on. Sat through an hour of bloviating for nothing.
Like many others Freepers, I tuned the BORe out years ago. Why he still hold such status is beyond me.
However, the constitutional issue of eligibility is the big question. The present occupant of 1600 Penn Ave. has many unanswered holes in his citizenship history.
As he continues to fail in office, we can expect that a rising tide will float this question to the point that the question will finally reach a court willing to continue the issue.
When even FOX treats us as peons and allows one of their major stars to continue to act like a media elite, it is time to remember Abe's slogan -
Of the people, by the people and for the people.
The full question of eligibility has never been vetted in the open light of day. It goes beyond - Show us the Birth Certificate, but to the full nuances of citizenship.
Here's a fun thing to do if you have a few minutes. Do a Google for "Frank Marshall Davis" and "Frank Marshal Davis". He's reportedly Zer0's actual father. When will this stuff stop?
Mommy has some interesting pictures, too.

Offer to make a big donation to his charity & he might accept your challenge.
I’m thinking that the selective service record is a public record. It would be interesting to see how he filed.
Seems to be a problem with that record too as something about the postal stamps used on the one filed (in the Chicago records center)i.e. the records stamp was not in use when he allegedly recorded his registration.
Look at it this way, no one who was present at the immaculate birth have come forth to crow about it, few if any remember him from undergraduate college days, and he seems to have no public associates from a large period of his life (except that guy who lives in his neighborhood Ayers).
Now do I think anything will ever come from this? No, he has too much cover and no one seems to want to risk a national riot or to have his nitwit VP elevated to president.
I’m still a proud non watcher of these guy. Never have, never will. I remembered not trusting him when he was local in NYC and knew he was a phony when he went national. BOR is just that a BORe.
Bill O’Reilly does this smug snicker every time he mentions this eligibility issue effectively employing the left’s technique of ridicule. I fired off an email the night he “defended” Lou Dobbs on his program by having a representative from the SPLC but no counter voice. Hey Bill, in the interest of fairness and balance, why don’t you have a “birther” on your program, say... Mr. Farah?
O’Blowhard was in the tank for Obama from the moment he interviewed him during the campaign.
Assuming that you’ve read the abundant information here on FR or elsewhere regarding Natural Born Citizenship, can you make a difinitive case that Obama is absolutely a Natural Born Citizen?
If not, doesn’t that bother you at all?
Exactly what I yelled at my TV.
Just about everything about Obama bothers me. He should have been compelled by a non-corrupt press to produce a whole lot of information that he wasn't. At least one state should have a lady behind a counter at the Secretary Of State office that wouldn't complete the ballot registration without proper documentation. But, unfortunately, none of that happened, and a clear majority elected the knave.
As I wrote, it's been my experience observing controversies over the years, that they hardly ever are resolved to the satisfaction of those that pursue answers to mysteries they see.
Remember the very small hole left in the pentagon when the plane crashed into it on 9/11. Have you ever seen public access cable shows with some guy swearing up and down that there's no way a jumbo jet wouldn't make a bigger hole than that, so it must have been a missile? I look at that and think "That is rather peculiar. I would really expect to see a bigger hole. It's hard to believe that the wings and tail just folded in and crammed trough such a small area. It's hard to believe. But if that isn't what happened, where is Barbara Olsen?"
As for Barry's birth certificate: it just makes so much sense that he must be hiding something. It must be so juicy. The evidence is clear, just like it is clear that jumbo jet can't fit through a tiny little hole. I just can't be the kind of person that pieces all the evidence together in search for some dramatic conclusion and ignores the fact that the simplest explanation is the one to accept, unless there is a serious reason to do otherwise. I think there may be a problem with his citizenship and loyalty, but that's due to his Indonesian upbringing, not his birth place. That should have been a political issue that compelled him to fully release all academic and medical records. But unfortunately for the good guys, it wasn't.
The simplest explanation is that he was born in Hawaii and is hiding his birth certificate for some reason unrelated to natural born status, or perhaps he's playing you.
So to answer your question: I can't make a definitive case that President Nifong is natural born. And I also can't make a definitive case that jumbo jet squeezed through an itty bitty hole. But if I had to bet my life on either one, I'd say yes he is, and yes it did.
That said, then if you don’t mind, let those that want to persue this matter do so unhindered, ok?
Nothing wrong with someone playing Devil’s Advocate in order to test the theories but that isn’t what most aer doing, they’re trying to simply discourage the effort entirely.
I know, they give you little pieces to keep you hooked and waiting, then it’s 15 seconds of nothing when it does appear. He’s going to lose viewers bigtime more and more people get onto him. All I ever see when I look at him anyway anyway is some old bald guy making phone calls to girls late at night in the dark
Good luck. When you never get the satisfaction you are seeking, don't say I didn't tell you so.
All that's missing is Barry invoking his Miranda rights then pleading the 5th Amendment.
A couple weks back some femi-nazi lib tried dismissing 'the birthers' by invoking 'Occam's Razor': The simplest model (explanation) is more likely to be correct. However if that's applied to the above examples, 'Occam's Razor' proves Barry has something to hide as that's the simplest explanation.
Then we have the best Detective who ever 'lived' who said: Once you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains, no matter how improbable, must be the truth.
So fess up Barry. You can end it all tomorrow.
