Who Are The "Birthers"? Here's The Short List
Red White and Blue Dog

Posted on 08/15/2009 11:48:27 PM PDT by Red White and Blue Dog

Obama essentially wants us to trust his word that health care will work out just fine for the rest of us who do not have the coverage he and the Congress have.

Okay, but before he asks us to trust him, he should trust us first by putting to bed a little unfinished business: basically, whether he qualifies to be President in the first place. He and his administration have mocked and degraded those who have sought the answer to this question. We're told they're a small clutch of angry fringe lunatics, unable to put their racism aside and accept a wonderful President who just happens to be black. But exactly who are these people?

Please spread this around. Education about Obama on all fronts is critical before Congress returns from recess.

This isn’t last years “birther” list: ******************************************************

Lou Dobbs CNN’s longest-running news anchor who has been with CNN from the beginning and is at the top of the chain at CNN. Dobbs is convinced that there is a story and logic to this issue.

******************************************************

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu who is convinced that Obama in unqualified and is demanding not just the Birth certificate, but passport and school records.

******************************************************

Rep. John Sullivan (R-Okla.) questioned the authenticity of President Barack Obama’s birth certificate: “Obama is creating an enemies list of people who oppose this miserable health care plan. …That’s from a guy that can’t even show a long-form birth certificate. I think we all ought to be prepared to fight that.”

******************************************************

The EXTREMELY LIBERAL Huffington Post is also not only calling for Obama to release his records, but has actually said the following: “The only thing weirder than the birthers are the anti-birthers.” In other words, it’s quite too weird to dedicate yourself to the idea that Obama should NOT release his records and put this issue to rest!

******************************************************

Kenyan Prime Minister Raila Odinga, Kenyan Ambassador Peter Ogego and all of Kenya, apparently, are not only convinced that Obama should release his records, but that he was actually born his their country.

******************************************************

Lynn Samuels A VERY LIBERAL NYC Radio fixture for over 25 years has not only called for Obama’s records, but has repeatedly called Obama a liar and ineligible to be president based on Obama’s reluctance to turn over his records.

******************************************************

11 US Congressmen sponsored a bill on the subject as a result of the “birther” controversy, making it quite implicit that they believe there is much to the issue that needs to be addressed and resolved.

******************************************************

Rep. John Campbell, R-Calif.,

******************************************************

Congressman Roy Blunt said President Obama hasn't produced a birth certificate

******************************************************

U.S. Sen. Richard Shelby, R-Ala "Well, his father was Kenyan and they said he was born in Hawaii, but I haven't seen any birth certificate,"

******************************************************

Rep. Eric Swafford of Tennessee, who agreed to be a plaintiff "for a Writ of Mandamus to obtain original birth certificate, immigration records, passports and other vital records for Barry Soetero aka Barack Hussein Obama."

******************************************************

African American NY Pastor Dr James David Manning, Founder and Pastor of ATLAH, one of urban New York City’s largest churches and a world-wide ministry, is absolutely outraged by Obama’s secretiveness, and preaches that in one of the most densely populated African American populations in the United States. Via online videos and a daily 3-hour radio broadcast heard Monday through Friday, almost daily Dr Manning calls for Obama to disclose his personal documents to put this issue to rest or resign from office.

******************************************************

Major Stefan Cook refused deployment until Obama unsealed his records and proved eligibility to serve as commander-in-chief. When the case was admitted into court, the Government simply dropped Cook's military orders without military consequence, though they did manage to get him fired from his civilian job.

******************************************************

Radio Host Steve Malzberg Has taken on the issue passionately and is no stranger to the airwaves. A guest host on stations around the country sitting in for Bill Bennett and Mike Gallagher on the Salem Radio Network, and John Gibson and others on Fox Radio. The Steve Malzberg Show is heard nationally via the WOR Radio Network.

******************************************************

Ambassador Alan Keyes Whose long and illustrious career goes back to the Reagan Administration and one of Obama’s most uncompromising critics is one of the Plaintiffs demanding Obama show his credentials in legal action.

******************************************************

Lt. Col. Donald Sullivan sought a temporary restraining order to stop the Electoral College vote in North Carolina until Barack Obama's eligibility could be confirmed, alleging doubt about Obama's citizenship.

******************************************************

Lt. Easterling, As a retired US Army SFC, Filed suit to force Obama to prove his eligibility.

******************************************************

Local newspapers, fueled by an education from their angry readers, have begun to openly report and editorialize that the story is a legit issue, at least insomuch as Obama fuels the issue himself with seeming deep paranoia. Here’s a good example: “An Open letter To Barack Obama” http://newsblaze.com/story/20081102053144zzzz.nb/topstory.html

******************************************************

Newspapers around the world ranging from the liberal London Times to the Conservative Canadian Free Press to Russia’s socialist newspaper, Pravda, have called out Obama to release his long form birth certificate, Pravda going so far as to insist that Obama step down from office if he does not. Here are a couple of examples from Pravda

http://english.pravda.ru/opinion/columnists/18-12-2008/106848-Code_Name_Obama-0 http://english.pravda.ru/opinion/columnists/106778-1/

Last week there was a blistering condemnation of Obama and the leftist media in the US on Obama’s citizenship issue at Australia.TO , Australia’s official national news website, which now puts these angers and complaints all the way to the other side of the world. Here’s the op-ed

http://www.australia.to/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=12881:media-mischief-the-obama-eligibility-issue-and-the-dispositive-fact-&catid=71:world-news&Itemid=201

******************************************************

Lawyers around the country are taking up dozens of very recent US Soldier’s cases to determine if Obama is eligible to be their commander-in-chief. These are all highly educated individuals and the military men are often career, high-ranking officers.

******************************************************

The Globe, While generally regarded as a tabloid, has nevertheless had two very serious front-page stories covering, generally, the US military suits against Obama for his records.

******************************************************

Maj. Gen. Carroll D. Childers agreed to be a plaintiff in legal action

******************************************************

A well-documented AOL poll recently showed as much as 85% of those who participated believe that Obama should release his personal records and put this issue to rest.

******************************************************

Virtually every cable news outlet has mentioned on-air, sometimes repeatedly, that they get thousands of e-mails *every day* from citizens demanding more coverage of this issue.

******************************************************

The Supreme Court, alone, has to date received more than 60,000 letters from Americans on this issue, all demanding disclosure from Obama.

****************************************************** World Net Daily, a respected online news organization and one of the few online-only news organizations recognized at White House news briefings, has a petition for Obama to disclose his birth certificate, and already has well in excess of a *half million signatures* alone.

******************************************************

BY THIS RECKONING everyone BUT the White House and their political allies and operatives in the entire world are kooky “birthers”.

Growingly, Presidents and Prime Ministers around the world, allies and contentious leaders alike, cannot rest assured if treaties signed by Obama are legal, or even if he can be trusted. For those who have less concern about political matters, Obama has made the US the laughing stock of the world. Not the “birthers”. Obama. Because only he can end this mess he, himself, created when he pro-actively sealed his records from public view through his lawyers.

The time has long since come for the White House to stop dodging this issue with insults, shrugs, waves of the hand and insinuations as to the character and intelligence of now, essentially, the entire world.

It’s time for Obama to show a modicum of courage and stifle appearances of gross suspicion and paranoia to the point of seeming emotionally unbalanced and simply release the documents so the world can be done with this. And this must be done long before Congress votes on any “Health care” legislation.

Or Obama must step down from office. Now.

RE SENDING THIS INFO OUT, I suppose it goes without saying that any subject header with "birthers" is likely to be ignored unless you get lucky with someone who hates birthers so much they'll open it hoping for some feel-good disparagement of us (hence the INCLUSION of the word in the media listing!).

SUGGESTIONS FOR E-MAIL SUBJECT HEADERS:

For congressmen: Subject: CONCERNS ABOUT OUR DISTRICT AND THOSE IN IT

For the media: BREAKING INFO ON THE BIRTHERS AND WHAT THEY'RE UP TO

For your friends and neighbors and subject headers for non-political board threads: THE TRUTH BEHIND THE CONSPIRACY THEORISTS

For Christian Boards: BEARING WITNESS ON A GROUP THAT IS BEING ATTACKED

PLEASE GET THESE OUT ASAP. It takes time to get momentum going, and we only have 3 weeks left.

“Growingly, Presidents and Prime Ministers around the world, allies and contentious leaders alike, cannot rest assured if treaties signed by Obama are legal, or even if he can be trusted.”

I am more worried about this...

“[The birth certificate], in theory, should be there,” said Mr. Vieira. “What if it isn’t? Who knows, aside from Mr. Obama? Does Russian intelligence know it isn’t there? Does Chinese intelligence know it isn’t there? Does the CIA know that it isn’t there? Who is in a position to blackmail this fellow?”

So a group of Americans want to know the true origins of President Barack Obama and they are demonized for it.

The pressure from the Socialist Media is so bad that there simply HAS TO BE SOMETHING that Obama is hiding.

Otherwise the Birthers would be ignored or relevant documents disclosed to end the headache.

Neither scenario is occuring.

I see John Campbell is on the list. His friend Hugh Hewitt thinks Birthers are a bunch of nutters.

I think Hugh, like so many other Republicans are afraid to look silly in support of the Birther Movement.

On its face it seems so outrageous and incomprehensible that many feel it couldn't be true. Soros and company played this hand well.

But if one simply looks at the facts, you are left with the inescapable conclusion that Obama is definitely not a Natural Born Citizen.

Bill Cunningham the talk radio host out of Cincinnati is close if not a Birther. He took over for Drudge’s syndicated time slot on Sundays.

My biggest questions are for the media.

When they call us conspiracy theorists, why don’t they mention that McCain was asked and provided his?

When they call us racist right wingers, why do they fail to mention Phil Berg, Alan Keyes, and Roger Calero?

For all the time they spent chasing down people who knew if Bush had a dentist appointment 30 years ago, why can’t they find a single friend of Obama from his school days?

For all the stories about how stupid Bush is, why don’t they want to brag about Obozo’s grades?

I could go on all day but I would still reach the same conclusion. The media is the realtor that sold this slum of a president sight unseen and now they’re afraid of screwing in a few light bulbs for fear America will see the tenement we bought.

LOL! I think the word you're looking for is Constitutionalists, but I get the point.

As far as being demonized and looking like screwballs - I've come to the conclusion that no matter how carefully we speak or how salient the evidence we provide, they're going to mock us ANYWAY.

It's what they do.

Got to remember, Obama said in one of his interviews, that the Constitution of the United States is a " flawed document " ....
The Democrats, MSM, Obama are going to keep chipping away at the US Constitution and our rights.
Even if we call ourselves " Constitutionalists " they are still going to demonize us and call us " Un American " .. " Racist " .. " The Mob " .. because in their eyes, our founding fathers of this country were nuts also, in their eyes, our founding fathers were kooks, racist, and not worth listening to or abiding to what they have wrote for us in our Constitution.

Count me in.

There is no valid logic to support spending hundreds of thousands of dollars to keep secret those documents that would cost a few hundred (at most) to produce and put this whole issue to rest, unless there is truly something to hide.

Smells worse than last week’s fish...

It’s time to take back the country.

Pissant would likely be disappointed if he didn’t, and rightfully so.

While I don’t think any action is going to affect this administration, I hope that it serves the purpose of shining a light on this so that in future elections, this will be settled far in advance of the general election.

Trust me-there are people who are going to clamor to change Article II section 1 of The Constitution to allow ANYONE to run for the Office of The President of the United States regardless of national origin. Mark my words. It was put there for valid reasons by the framers, and those reasons are valid today.

We ignore it at our peril.

Also, ...As the Huffington Post is correct. It is the afterbirthers who are weird. Only someone who is tying themselves in mental knots can defend Obama’s fighting the release of his records all the way to the Supreme Court.

how about ‘constitution upholders’ instead...

That is the real issue. There are actually two questions to be answered. First: "Is someone whose father (or mother) was not a US Citizen at the time of their birth considered a 'Natural Born Citizen', as that term is used in the Constitution". If the answer to that is "No", and I believe it is, the the related question of "where was BHO Jr born" need not be asked. If the answer to the first question is "yes", then the second question must be asked. The term "birther" mostly applies only to those who are focused on the second question. I say mostly, because the long form, or a true certified COLB, would provide the answer to "Who's his daddY", which goes a long way to determining if the second question "where was he born" needs to be asked at all.

Mental exercise time.

If someone starts challenging me on BO's eligibility issues (the last person who tried to pick a fight with me started arguing "but his mother was a citizen"), I think I might well ask, "How would YOU go about proving that YOU'RE a natural-born citizen of the United States?"

I don't think this is an ad hominem attack. I think it might force some people to reconsider what it is they are defending and what their definition of terms is.
