Answer Man: Luke Scott talks Nugent, hunting and Obama origin (Barf)
Yahoo ^ | 12/7/10 | David Brown

Posted on 12/08/2010 11:38:47 AM PST by Teflonic

Baltimore Orioles slugger Luke Scott(notes) stopped by baseball's winter meetings Tuesday and, after some harmless chatter about his team's offseason dealings, stated with conviction that President Barack Obama was not born in the United States.

Oh, yes, he did. Scott's opinion about the president's birthplace — while certainly not unique — was a stunning climax to a friendly and frank 20-minute Answer Man session that spanned his enthusiasm for baseball, hunting, firearms, personal responsibility and smaller government.

"(Obama) was not born here," Scott asserted to Answer Man in the session's last segment. "That's my belief. I was born here. If someone accuses me of not being born here, I can go — within 10 minutes — to my filing cabinet and I can pick up my real birth certificate and I can go, 'See? Look! Here it is. Here it is.' The man has dodged everything. He dodges questions, he doesn't answer anything."

Scott's controversial comments are gaining steam in the online world (read the full text of them here), his Wikipedia page has already been updated with the comments and teammate Adam Jones(notes) has tweeted a preemptive show of support ("Luke Scott Luke Scott Luke Scott Luke Scott you still my boy").

Scott used to come to the ballpark packing heat. Now sporting an offseason beard but no noticeable firearm, Scott came out guns blazing, figuratively, in Orlando.

I enthusiastically support you too, Luke Scott!

The author of that article links to a certificate of live birth, referring to it as “here it is” and a birth certificate.

Who was the attendant physician?
What was the birth weight?

African is a “race”?

What a document. Where is the older style birth certificate the Barack mentioned in his own book?

Barack Hussein Obama lied about his parents coming together after the Selma march. He lied about other things in his past.

Show me. I don’t take a known liar at his word.

Why does this have a barf alert?

Scott asked a question we’ve all asked and have yet to have answered.

Orioles owner Peter Angelos cannot be too happy with this. He is a huge Castro loving Democrat who refuses to sign Cuban defectors on his team. Angelos is not a fan of freedom.

I gave it a barf alert due to the author’s thinly veiled attempt to vilify and ridicule the player over his conservative views.

And the author tried to make us believe Obama was born here by posting the obvious fake BC. We need more folks like Luke to step up to the microphone and tell it like it is! I like this guy!

I looked all over to see contact info for David Brown, the author of the article, or for the editor who inserted various things there including Obama’s forged COLB.

What I would want these people to know - to make sure they don’t spread falsehoods and deceptions - is that the Hawaii Department of Health has now indirectly confirmed in THREE different ways that the Factcheck COLB is a forgery, because

1) They have made a statutory admission that Obama’s BC is amended, which must be shown on a genuine COLB but isn’t shown on the Factcheck COLB;

2) They have confirmed that the BC# is given by the HDOH on the “date filed”. This is problematic because the Factcheck “date filed” is 3 days earlier than that of the Nordyke twins’ BC’s but has a later (higher) number than theirs; and

3) Within the last few days the HDOH was forced to release an image of their seal as it appears when stamped onto paper, and it does not match the seal on the Factcheck COLB. See http://obamasgarden.wordpress.com/2010/12/04/unveiling-the-hdoh-seal/

For the first two items there is more info and documentation at http://butterdezillion.wordpress.com/2010/01/11/red-flags-in-hawaii-2/

What will be funny is all the Liberal GOP Obama Supporters going postal against Luke Scott....those that refuse to discuss Obama’s eligibility

Luke Scott for President. Unlike Obama, he has a Birth Certificate

There’s no denying the doubt millions of Americans have about this incompetent pretender. We were all blessed by God with a native intelligence that intuits what’s real and what isn’t. This ain’t going away .. the beat goes on. God bless America.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

DB: You don’t think that Obama wasn’t born in the United States, do you?

LS: He was not born here.

DB: [Sighs].

LS: That’s my belief. I was born here. If someone accuses me of not being born here, I can go — within 10 minutes — to my filing cabinet and I can pick up my real birth certificate and I can go, “See? Look! Here it is. Here it is.” The man has dodged everything. He dodges questions, he doesn’t answer anything. And why? Because he’s hiding something.

You know what? People who have bad intentions, people that are deceivers or are not of honor and integrity — that’s how they act. I’ve seen it in every — it doesn’t matter what level. It can be in politics, it can be in business, it can be in sports, it can be in the construction field. Doesn’t matter. It’s all the same attitude. It’s the same thing.

People who tell the truth, they’re very easy to ... their actions prove it. Something as simple providing a birth certificate. Come on. If you’re born here, there’s plenty of documents.

But you know what? There’s no documentation of him. No legal documentation of him. There’s been lie after lie after lie exposed, but people put it under the carpet. Hence, the problem we have in this country.

LS: There needs to be accountability for the truth. I don’t care if you’re the president of the United States, you need to be held accountable. If you’re involved in treacherous acts, or you’re saying things that are against, or are selling out our country, you should be brought to trial.

But the word is getting out there, and people are becoming more aware of it. Next, they will start to recognize what it MEANS if (and I think certainly) Obama is NOT constitutionally qualified for POTUS.

Then we will see the poodoo hit the fan. I recommend leaving the room before the toss with an “I TOLD YA SO” as you go out the door, because that fan is on oscillate/high. No, it will not be pretty. It will not smell nice. It will be downright scary.

Of course Obama’s media is going to spin this.

More people need to speak out that Obama nevers answers to anything and he is hiding something. Imagine if Bush kept his college records hidden. It is rumored (because he won’t say)that Obama got C’s and D’s in college. How was he a professor? Is he still a lawyer?

" You know what? People who have bad intentions, people that are deceivers or are not of honor and integrity — that’s how they act. I’ve seen it in every — it doesn’t matter what level. It can be in politics, it can be in business, it can be in sports, it can be in the construction field. Doesn’t matter. It’s all the same attitude. It’s the same thing. "

Mathew Henry's Bible commentary , words that were written over 300 years ago, but, still applies today...
This is Mathew Henry's comments on Isaiah chapter 59 verse 4.

( ** (4.) No methods are taken to redress these grievances, and reform these abuses (v. 4): None calls for justice, none complains of the violation of the sacred laws of justice, nor seeks to right those that suffer wrong or to get the laws put in execution against vice and profaneness, and those lewd practices which are the shame, and threaten to be the bane, of the nation.
Note, When justice is not done there is blame to be laid not only upon the magistrates that should administer justice, but upon the people that should call for it.
Private persons ought to contribute to the public good by discovering secret wickedness, and giving those an opportunity to punish it that have the power of doing so in their hands; but it is ill with a state when princes rule ill and the people love to have it so.
Truth is opposed, and there is not any that pleads for it, not any that has the conscience and courage to appear in defence of an honest cause, and confront a prosperous fraud and wrong.
The way of peace is as little regarded as the way of truth; they know it not, that is, they never study the things that make for peace, no care is taken to prevent or punish the breaches of the peace and to accommodate matters in difference among neighbours; they are utter strangers to every thing that looks quiet and peaceable, and affect that which is blustering and turbulent.
There is no judgment in their goings; they have not any sense of justice in their dealings; it is a thing they make no account of at all, but can easily break through all its fences if they stand in the way of their malicious covetous designs.***).....

Not only is the Baltimore owner Angelos a dyed-in-the-wool Democrat, but so are just about all the other owners in both major leagues. To the best of my knowledge, Republicans have been shut out of new MLB ownerships ever since Commissar Selig arrived in 1992 - by design. The last clearly Republican owner was George W. Bush, and he purchased his Texas team when his daddy was president, so that the syndicate could have a pipeline to the White House. In other words, W was granted an exemption. Since then, during Selig's reign, I know of no Republican who has been allowed in the owners' club.

Surprised that Luke Scott hasn't gotten the John Rocker treatment yet as punishment from the crony capitalists who run the game - like sensitivity counseling, etc. But Scott may pay the price next year when he is scheduled for free agency. These leftist owners aren't too keen about politically incorrect speech on the part of their employees, and many have long memories.

Thanks for the info. BTW, check out the Commissar Selig and his political contributions and you'll find out about his affection for the 'Rats as well. That's why Scott had a lot of courage to speak his mind on this.
