Bill O'Reilly: Arpaio on Obama's birth certificate
Bill O'Reilly's You Tube Channel ^ | Mar 9, 2012 | Bill O'Reilly

Arpaio on Obama's birth certificate

"Bill explains to a BillOReilly.com Premium Member why he hasn't bothered to report on Arizona Sheriff Arpaio's assertion that President Obama's birth certificate is allegedly a forgery in this excerpt from our Backstage Conversation webcast."

Transcript: Bill O'Reilly- "Erin, Bentonville, Arkansas: Why do you ignore Sheriff Arpaio's assertion that President Obama's birth certificate is a forgery? Well, Because Sheriff Arpaio has not presented any hard evidence to back up his assertion. Secondly, I am very busy. I looked into the birth certificate myself and found out there were two separate birth announcements made in Honolulu newspapers on the day Barack Obama was born. It would be impossible for that to happen unless somebody was 'conspiratorialising' the birth of a little mixed raced baby. If that were happening, then I guess you could have birth announcements planted. But, the odds of that Lil, uh umm Aaron, are about 29 Gazillion to one. Alright..?

Not at all. Just the opposite. If someone wanted to represent their baby as being born in HI vs out of the country, it would be very easy

Yeah, that’s what he said.. Although it would take about two hours tops to go through what Sheriff Arpaio presented. O’Reilly says the Sheriff has not presented any hard evidence and then goes on to defend Obama with the whole birth announcement thing.. Absurd.

WTF is he talking about? There were two birth announcements...Mix raced baby? Oh so in other words the announcement would have been “A mixed race baby was born today”...Yeah OK. Bill O’Reilly paid off? - Check.

Maybe someone should ask him a different question .... are you one of the media figures who have been threatened by the government? Arpaio’s chief investigator said that major media figures have told him they’ve been threatened with their FCC licenses being pulled, investigations by gov’t agencies, etc. if they utter one little peep about the bc issue. That might explain a lot of the reluctance to talk about it .... other than just plain ‘ostrich-head-in-the-sand’ mentality.

Conspiracy? Aw shucks .... no way Obama and his Chicago thugs would stoop so low, right?! /S If Bill has “looked into” the matter, he hasn’t looked any farther than the nose on his arrogant, bloviating face.

I could send an announcement to our local newspaper saying my daughter had given birth to an alien from space and they would print it. They take it for what it’s worth and print it. They trust you’re being honest which, of course, most people are. In Obama’s case...not so much.

Just because there were birth announcements in the local papers, doesn’t prove that little barry was born here.

This just supports what I’ve been saying for a long time that he’s in 0bama’s pocket.

...Mix raced baby? Yeah, that seemed out of place for the topic.. However, his mother was white and his father was black, I fail to see how it has anything to do with the question. Perhaps he's trying to make this a racial issue when it's actually a document issue??
What about the 1961 Birth Announcements?

Well, in the end Obama is not going to be reelected because he was a crappy and partisan President, not because of questionable birth documents.

So .... lets just focus on the crappy and partisan President part.

We can keep on researching this while pointing out the 'crappy / partisan' stuff too. This just happens to highlight the fact that he has been less than honest with the American people. Dishonest, crappy, and partisan isn't too much of a stretch, is it?

OMG! BOR seems to be saying here that he believes that 0bama was BORN!

I have news, hard news, for him. We ALL agree little barry was born. What we dispute with the left is what is on the long form BC, and what it means for NBC. These are Constitutional issues... not a question of whether or not he was born.

Well maybe you can but you’re making those of us who can’t look bad.

You’re more likely to convert an undecided with the crappy and partisan part rather then muddled and mired questionable natural born issue successfully portrayed as the lunatic thinking right.

The election was certified by the House and the Senate — which is a defacto approval. The best we can hope for at this point is to not reelect Obama.

Translation: Bill O’Reilly, didn’t even watch the presser so he doesn’t know even the most basic facts, including the evidence that the posse presented and the response to questions about the birth announcements. Mike Zullo said that they have evidence that foreign-born children and children up to 3 years old were included in the newspaper announcements. The end conclusion is that the birth announcements are not credible. I would add that this strongly refutes the claim that the announcements were even from the HDOH at all - which leads to the question of why Marsha McFadden at the Advertiser and the HDOH via Lori Starfelt deceived the public into thinking those announcements only came from the HDOH.

Anybody who claims they don’t have time to address the biggest scam in this nation’s history is either a liar or too stupid to know up from down.

Or has been threatened. And we just so happen to know that Bill O’Reilly was threatened by Fox who had been threatened by Soros, Axelrod, and Emanuel.

My birth was announced in two papers in Cleveland, and one in Akron. I was born in Alexandria, Va.. It was announced in a paper there too. Grandparents sent in the ones in Ohio, Dad, or the hospital, sent in the one in DC/Alexandria. Birth announcements don’t prove squat.

This has nothing to do with the election. It has to do with crimes - for which the posse found probative cause. At this point they are looking to find out who committed those crimes. One of those crimes is fraud - the fraud of presenting a forgery as if it was genuine. And the person who presented this forgery as if it was proof positive of a Hawaii birth certificate.... is Barack Obama. They need to find exactly what Obama knew about what was shown, which would have to be that he knew it was a forgery if he truly had a copy of a birth certificate as claimed in his book and it turns out that there isn’t a genuine Hawaii BC that looks like this forgery.

This isn’t about politics; it’s about law enforcement. Are you saying we don’t need law enforcement, or that forgery and fraud are fine as long as they are done by POTUS, his advisors, and multiple government agencies at state and federal levels?

It's not about the announcements being credible or not, only that they are limited in terms of any probative value because they do not contain the place of birth, the child's name, whether the registration was complete or delayed, etc. From other records and sources, however, we do know that Barack Sr. never lived at the address in the announcement.

What BOR fails to understand or acknowledge is the ability in Hawaii to register a birth on the testimony of a witness, such as Obama’s grandmother. That registration, once accepted by the registrar, would have automatically generated the birth announcements in the newspapers.

FR birthers, please correct me (with cited evidence) if I am incorrect.

"Well maybe you can but you’re making those of us who can’t look bad." Don't pin that on us.. "we" just happen to doubt Obama is legit. The media has painted us as "birthers" just like they called the Tea Party "racist teabaggers"..that was not our doing, we didn't adopt those names. It's pure 'Alinsky tatics'- attack / ridicule and drag the issue into conspiracy land, when the truth is, we just want the Constitution upheld and enforced.

This has been covered many times before and it shows that O’Reilly really is not as thorough and smart as we would think or want him to be.

First it does not matter that there were 2 hospitals or 16 hospitals or whatever number. Because the newspapers were reporting the information given by the Health Department who in turn was taking information from Islanders and hospital offices.

As for conspiracy to record a mixed race baby who was possibly born outside the USA? Yes there was a very big motivation for doing so. US Citizen back them was a prize, a gift, a blessing. The grandmother who worked in the Health Department and mother could very well have worked out a plan to get the baby American citizenship because to bring an a baby from Kenya from a mother whose own status was up i the air would have been a lot of red tape with no certainty on a positive outcome.

So one long distance phone call to the grandmother who would in turn fill out the report of a birth would result in a birth registration and this in turn would have been copied to the press.

So just having a newspaper announce a birth means nothing, it is not proof. It would never be used officially to confirm a person’s birthplace.

Next the newspaper announcements never mentioned the baby’s name, only the name of the father and the address where they lived. Islanders usually live in one place all their life in Hawaii. So when a fellow Islander went to check the address of the mother and father on Oahu, they found and talked with longtime resident neighbors that were in August 1961 and did not remember any black mixed baby. They would have remembered a baby, especially a mixed one. But they remembered nothing of the sort.

So there is evidence not to show that Obama was foreign born but that O’Reilly is an incompetent investigator. So this article does nothing for people called ‘birthers’ but it does point to O’Reilly’s lack of smarts.

The other thing here that shows O’Reilly is way overrated is that he said the Sheriff had not shown any evidential findings. Say what?

I haven’t watched O’Reilly in years and feel no desire to have his mug showing in my living room or his arrogant voice heard in my house. He is way past his novelty welcome. He was once a good mouthpiece against the idiotic left but no more.

Some things to consider:

Sheriff Arpaio’s Deputies are career Law Enforcement professionals whose reputations depend on their veracity. It cost the Sheriff’s Office a considerable amount of money to train these guys in Computer Forensics and even more to task them with this assignment. I suppose it’s a matter of who you’re willing to believe; people whose job it is to ferret-out crime or people who are habitual liars?

...do you have any proof to back up the statement?

For one, the column is labeled "Health Bureau Statistics." Also, longtime Honolulu reporter Dan Nakaso said it wasn't possible for the announcements to be planted by family members because, "Under the system that existed back then, there was no avenue for people to submit information that way...The information came directly from the state Department of Health."

Are you aware that the sister’s birth was also reported in HI even though it’s admitted that she was foreign born?

I don't know where you're getting your information, but that's not true.

This is the man who explained away the social security number with this:

Obamas’s father got the number for him when he was at Harvard.

Three problems Bill:

1. Harvard is in Boston, not CT and there is no sign of Obama Senior every living in CT.
2. When Obama II got the number Obama Senior was in Kenya - probably drinking and chasing women.
3. The Fogbow ‘excuse’ is that a ‘clerical error’ was made since CT and HI are only 1 digit difference. So you used the wrong excuse Bill. Did you not get the memo?

Ignore that Obama’s WU friends ran an indentity theft operation in NYC. And what state is next to NYC? Oh, forget it, we know from the your excuse provided above that you are not good with US geography. Here is a hint - CT.

Here is what is true.

If you watched the press conference last week it was indicated that each name was run down.

They found foreign births and birth from as many as 3 years previous in the listing.

Meaning....the list is worthless for anything. It proves absolutely zero of anything.
