Glenn's Birther Revelation
Obama's Birthplace Has Been Subject of Controversy Since Election
Fourteen percent of Americans say without prompting that they think Barack Obama was born in another country, rising to one in five when those with no opinion are offered that as a possibility. But for many it's not a firm belief and some appear not to hold it against him.
Among those inclined to think Obama was born abroad, half also say that's their suspicion only, not a judgment based on solid evidence, the latest ABC News/Washington Post poll finds. And perhaps surprisingly, about a third of so-called "birthers" nonetheless approve of Obama's work in office and express a favorable opinion of him personally.
Is he starting to catch on finally?
I just don’t know .. it would be comforting
if he just had some tiny bit of curiosity about
the origins, mentors/benefactors, the path and
smoke and mirrors of -0.
Certainly it would be helpful if Beck were to take on the BC question — but then who would do the magnificent work he is doing in unmasking the nefarious deeds underway in this corrupt administration?
Let’s leave Beck alone. He doesn’t need distractions, just support. Let others keep digging into Barry 0’s past.
Obama’s dad wasn’t a citizen.
That eliminates Obama from “Natural Born” status.
This does not seem to matter and no amount of yapping by lunatic dentists will change that.
It’s like throwing a glass of water on a house fire.
It ain’t gonna work.
We must wait for the fire to burn out.
Yes, because we wouldn't want to annoy those(Beck) who should have covered this without prejudice a long time ago.
Ignorance must be bliss for Beck.
Would you trade all of Beck’s work for a failed project...just like Hillary must have failed? She had the most reason to find the truth.
It has to be... a condition for him in order for his situation with Faux, and perhaps others, to exist.
This does not seem to matter and no amount of yapping by lunatic dentists will change that.
That's what surprises me about Beck. "Birther" is a rat made label used by rats to divert attention away from what really matters---Dumbo isn't a naturalized citizen, regardless.
Most of Beck's work you can find at the New Zeal blog well before it is aired on Beck so to give ALL the credit to Beck is purely being ignorant. If for once someone like Beck on FOX would give this issue the respect & time it deserves it would go viral & mainstream in all medias, but NO...can't do that. Therefore your response is nothing more then hyperbole to gain a certain reaction.
Any sensible American should be a ‘birther’ until Obama can prove that his suspicion is unfounded. Possibly all Americans are ‘birthers’ but few are interested in knowing the truth.
And government is not helping out, either.
Naturalized be damned, the requirement is "natural born".
It does not seem to matter. The powers that be are unwilling
to act on this fact. It makes no sense to beat one's head against
the wall over this. It's like bitching about the fact that rivers run southwards.
Folks should quit bitching and build a dam or something.
You obviously haven’t been watching Beck lately.
Ignorance is bliss — and I’m not talking about Glenn and his audience.
Beck is able to chew gum and walk at the same time. One important issue does not have to cancel out another but rather can be aptly knit together to reveal and validate truth.
Pretty bold ASSUMPTION there don't ya think because that is all it is. What I do, do every morning is read the New Zeal blog, in fact I link to it at my site and if you had been paying attention, you would know that Glenn attributes a lot of what he covers to Trevor. Talk about NOT paying attention.
What is the most annoying fact about Beck is his ‘question everything with boldness’ yet he fails it at 1st glance and then he stands/sits there with pictures of the founding fathers behind him and throws egg in our faces. Yes, ya just gotta respect a guy like that. (sarc)
It seems they are being hushed, possibly bought off and/or threatened and afraid.
I don't buy that for one minute. Why? Because they keep bringing up the subject, but not to cover it with legitimacy, but only to ridicule us and tell people to avoid conversations with us, the ‘annoying ones’.
Yeah, that's right...just bend over and take it like a good little b!tch, then just go sit down and shut up.
When you get a flat do you whine about nails in the road?
Or change the tire and move on?
Don’t place all your hopes and dreams in one man. This is the beauty of the tea party movement. Without a centralized structure or designated “leader”, the organization can’t be impugned.
Keep it loose and effect key races. Don’t worry about the glory and the riches of an organization. or Beck.

Good point. Maybe they are being paid in some way to ridicule birthers. If they were being bought off or threatened and afraid all they would have to do is avoid the subject. They are going a large step further and actually ridiculing us on a consistent basis.
I find it hard to believe that curious, informed or even partially informed hosts of programs on Fox News would, just so happen, all be anti birther to the point of ridiculing us. Something else must be up. What do you think it is?
Nothing else matters.
Glenn has failed to anger me when it comes to “birthers”.
But the one who manages to send me to nail spitting and a desire to stick a boot up his butt, is Michael Medved. I only listen to him because my local has him on when I am doing my afternoon driving chore, and by the time I pick up my wife, I’m screaming at the radio...
Right on. POTD nomination.
Do you consider Obama taking a long piss on our beloved Constitution in the face of the entire world to be just a nail in the road? Where, oh where is your Patriot's heart?
The staffer said to Beck something like “You can't just wound this beast, you have to take it down.”
When Beck said this I wondered whether it had yet occurred to Beck that the “birther” claims of illegitimacy could, in the court of public opinion if not in federal court, be the best way to take down the Obama machine quickly as we may not have the luxury of waiting until 2012 to prevent permanent damage.
Now you have posted this great video in which Beck appears to be laying the groundwork for a pivot by him to explore the veracity of birther claims.
From memory Beck said something like “The Birthers have been discredited. They have that “-er” suffix. Or have they?” And then he went on.
If Beck is going to “go rogue” and explore birther issues honestly without mocking framing up front it will because Roger Ailes has now given his blessing. Maybe he read the Kenyan presidential candidate's declaration that Obama was born there.
LOL. Well, that was hardly a revelation.
Yes ... how much I related to that, and how
many months I’ve been weeping for my country,
watching as it’s dissembled, one precious
piece at a time.
Please keep praying .. it’s powerful.
ping to LucyT’s list...
I use the tools I have at my disposl to change it now and not wait until the next model comes out.
I am sorry I did not get time to check this thread sooner.
I believe you read into the reply something that was not there.
I can not respect you for calling me IGNORANT. Quoting one blog and using “big” words does not prove INTELLIGENCE.
I do, however, RESPECT myself enough to IGNORE you in the future.

Thank you, Seizethecarp.
“We must wait for the fire to burn out.”
Will we also wait for Lady Liberty’s torch to burn out? By the time Zero is done there will be nothing left of this once great nation.
This is so frustrating... The media continues to frame the story and miss the important points.
The birthplace doesn’t matter — not in the least. Obama was born a subject of the United Kingdom at birth. Thus, he is not a natural born citizen. He was born with dual allegiance, at the least, and may not have been able to claim US citizenship because of the laws on the books in 1961, and his mother’s age and length of residence in the state.

You got it. Lamestreams are just too elite
for the silly old Constitution.
He and his producers/staffers have done a really good job outlining the connections between this administration and important truths regarding our government and the way it is supposed to run. It would be nice if he could just assign a couple people to do an honest investigation into the claims of various people and the lawsuits — and the evidence (or lack thereof) regarding his history.
I have a couple old friends who watch Beck fairly regularly (I don’t have cable so I don’t see the show usually). They appreciate how he’s able to break things down and expose the lies to the light. If only he attacked every story with the same gusto.
How about naming the traitors that hatched this plot and then covered everything up?
About a quarter+ billion dollars will sell your principles out of the back door!!!
Can you imagine if Gore would have won? Everything would have happen a lot sooner living under rules of global warming climate change. Hillary and Al had too much baggage. It might have been easier to promote Obama. She’s still a major player. The question is who does she represent? The American people or crime inc.
Can you imagine if Gore would have won?
Thank you dearly, God.
Patlin — I’m fully aware of the New Zeal blog, as well as a reader.
You seem to hold it against Beck that he collects information from other sources and gives it much greater exposure on his program. He has always credited other sources and asked for input from others.
My point, which you cannot seem to understand, is that Beck is pointedly and very effectively traveling one scary road. I don’t care if he leaves the birth issue alone. It’s unreasonable to expect one loud voice to do all the work or cover every issue. Perhaps Beck will eventually pick up on the eligibility question, maybe not. Regardless, he is doing his share, and it’s sad to see him catching criticism for that.
His program today was downright scary. If you are following what he is doing, you should know that Obama himself is not the only one we have to worry about. I hope you watched.
I am sure Gore would have been used the same way. The global warming crisis was believed in even stronger then.
The racist cover now is a benefit.
Hillary and Bill only work for themselves, IMHO. Yes, lots of baggage but it gets more distant all the time. “I don’t remember, I can’t recall”. LOL
It is not even a matter of him being born here or not. His father was a British subject, not an American.
There will come a time to use that issue.
I listened to so many Judges, Governors, and my own Senator say the public knew the facts before the election and they would be no part of overturning the vote of the electorate.
They were truly afraid to get involved both personally and for the reaction by the voters.
Now we just wait! His NBC is not valid for so many reasons that it would be hard to settle on ONE reason. and then each of the others would have to be settled also....appeals for 25 years?
“The truth does not require a majority to prevail.
The truth is its own power. The truth will out. Never forget that.” ~ Rush Limbaugh
Ahhh... darn... I thought Beck was going to admit he’s at least leaning towards being a birther.
He just talked about the polling data, and kept himself conveniently neutral.

Time after time Today and 234 years ago, we see that one-third ratio repeated, over and over and over again. It's an inseparable part of the American political psyche ...
At the outset of the Revolutionary War:
- one-third of the public were Patriots, proclaiming the Declaration of Independence on
- one-third of the public were Tories, loyal to the King and the yoke of Government control (Patriot Nathan Hale's own Tory cousin Samuel Hale exposed him, leading to Hale's capture and hanging by the British in NY on September 22, 1776)
- one-third were along for the ride! (today's Independents, who drift from Left to Right)
They must be "forced" to do so via unyielding political pressure, as they may "forget" after November 2010.
In the end, the Minority acts as the Majority when:
