Skip to comments.Newspapers' birth announcements: So what ?
Posted on 01/06/2010 5:41:28 PM PST by RobinMasters
Contrary to the claims of critics of citizens who demand Barack Obama produce evidence of his presidential eligibility, newspaper birth announcements in Hawaiian newspapers in 1961 did not necessarily indicate a baby was born in the state.
As WND reported, Glenn Beck ridiculed the so-called birther movement on his nationally syndicated radio show Monday, pointing to identical birth announcements published in the Honolulu Advertiser and the Honolulu Star-Bulletin as evidence Obama was born in Hawaii and, therefore, is a natural-born citizen as required by the Constitution.
Beck, and two colleagues, mocked "birthers" for purportedly believing a wild conspiracy in which Obama's parents, knowing he would someday be president, "preemptively" collaborated with two separate newspapers to publish phony announcements stating he was born in Hawaii.

Glenn Beck is an ignorant nut or idiot. Either that or he is deliberately aiding and abetting evil.
The author doesn’t know what is talking about. If Obama’s mother was an American citizen, he is a “natural born” citizen no matter where he was born.
The only thing those announcements prove is that someone called a newspaper and said a baby was born.
I think Beck, much like O’Reilly, will grab onto ANYTHING that allows them to brush this off, because they, for whatever reason, do not want to bark up this tree.
It is plainly obvious to me that obama lies about every single thing, his entire life is a lie, he most certainly did not attend columbia university, but I am supposed to believe that, despite his constant lying, he is telling the absolute truth about his origins.
The president is a fraud, Mr. Beck, and I think you know it as well as anyone else.
Stop being a little coward, and do your job.
Understand what a dual citizen is, Kirk, which he is by his own admission. You are wrong.
I believe the mother was not of age to pass on natural born status.
Beck is a RINO. /s
Where does it say that the mother has to be “of age”?! No where I’ve seen. I think some birther pulled that out of his A** and people made it some kind of comeback ever since.
It’s a well known fact that anyone can go to the post office with a newspaper cut out and a .jpeg picture of their COLB on their cell phone and get a passport. It should be good enough for the commander and chief of our armed forces with his greasy finger on the nuclear button. /sarc
Just because he may not be looking into Obama’s birth and he may not share our concerns in that area, doesn’t make him either ignorant nor an idiot.
He’s concentrating on other immediately alarming issues. There are many to choose from. Anyone who watches his show knows that.
Beck may be wrong on this, but he’s right on so much more.
Obama admits that he’s a dual born citizen on his site: “fly kites with queers”.
Are you saying your hero is a liar?
Regarding Obama’s eligibility there are only TWO possible conclusions that can be made:
1) Beck is an ignorant idiot.
2) He is being deliberately evil.
Doesn’t make any difference, dirka, his dad was a british citizen at the time of obama’s alleged birth.
If, in fact, his dad is who obama claims he is, then obama is not eligible, end of story.
But it doesn’t matter, because there are far too many cowards, idiots, and morons in this country, so nothing is going to be done about it.
Let’s just hope Bin Laden’s children don’t decide to run for president, because Obama’s use of the constitution as toilet paper has left the door wide open.
That is patently false.
All it took was a witness (doctor, midwife, or other) to sign the registration form.
After that if newspapers got birth information from the state's department of vital statistics it was all there -- and like Obama no mention of a hospital in the newspaper.
RE: Obama's long form birth certificate
All we are saying
is give release a chance.
You “think” that. You mean you don’t think. Give the people who have actually read the law that applied at that time some credit. I’m not going to repeat it here, since it’s been sliced, diced and laid out clearly so many times already.
I think some are trying to quiet this down because it’s not going to go anyplace for now. Maybe some day.
All I want to know is why he spent so much money and time trying to silence everyone and why he didn’t show America the ‘real deal’.... you know, just for the hell of it. Looks like he would have been proud to show it.
Like I said...down the road.
