Bill O’Reilly: Sane People Know Obama Is A Citizen, Not A Muslim... ^ | Feb. 15, 2011 | John L. Work

Posted on 02/15/2011 8:08:58 PM PST by EternalVigilance

...And The Rest Of Us Who Still Have Questions Are…?

Here's The Right Side Of It

by John L. Work

Bill O'Reilly

With a hat tip to 630KHOW’s Peter Boyles, here’s a rather astounding YouTube video clip from last night’s Fox News O’Reilly Factor, featuring Juan Williams and Mary Katharine Ham as guests.  The issue at hand was Barack Obama’s Constitutional eligibility to hold office – or rather more specifically, his citizenship and religion.  With his usual condescension, overbearing rhetoric, de-facto name-calling, interruptive behavior and obstinate ignorance of some glaring veracity problems in the Obama life-narrative, O’Reilly has become a sort of obfuscating leftist grand protector of the President’s still-hidden documented past.  The video link follows:

 “…I don’t think there’s any effect in this country at all on any public policy about the President’s religion or his birth certificate.  It doesn’t matter.”…”

 Really.  Does the Constitution matter, Mr. O’Reilly?

 In response to Juan Williams’ question about why there are now nine U.S. Congressmen who want legislation passed to verify Obama’s citizenship, O’Reilly had this to say:

 “Alright, you want me to answer that question?  Because they’re pinheads and they’re playing to the crowd.  And it has nothing to do with the business of the nation.  Nothing…”

 And it is very contradictory to O’Reilly’s position that the numbers in the crowd have actually grown – to view the debate about the issue that doesn’t matter.

 Mary Katharine Ham’s point that the leftists who are now asking the questions are being treated very differently from the right-wingers who are asking the very same questions drew this from the host:

 “Here’s the deal.  I want everybody to understand this.  The issue doesn’t matter.  It doesn’t matter.  Sane, clear-thinking people understand the President is not a Muslim, and he wasn’t born in Indonesia or whatever they’re puttin’ out there.  So, why does Meet The Press and NBC News take up valuable air time to hammer a guy who has nothin’ to do with it – Boehner?  He has no dog in the hunt….”

Let’s break this down:

1)      The issue does matter because The Constitution matters.

2)      I have some questions about the historical background and origins of the President that he has refused to answer.  So, I’m not able to think clearly and my sanity is at question?

3)      The purpose of the Meet the Press grilling of John Boehner was an attempt to get him to repudiate the voters and Congressmen who are asking the question, “Who are you, Obama, and from whence came you?” - which Boehner refused to do. 

O’Reilly apparently cannot think clearly enough to figure this out.

Thanks for your interesting post. Some of it was new news to me but I confess that I'm still in doubt as to BHO's citizen status.

On the subject, here's another recent link:

Hawaii governor can't find Obama birth certificate Suggests controversy could hurt president's re-election chances Posted: January 18, 2011 8:05 pm Eastern By Jerome R. Corsi © 2011 WorldNetDaily Neil Abercrombie Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie suggested in an interview published today that a long-form, hospital-generated birth certificate for Barack Obama may not exist within the vital records maintained by the Hawaii Department of Health. Abercrombie told the Honolulu Star Advertiser he was searching within the Hawaii Department of Health to find definitive vital records that would prove Obama was born in Hawaii, because the continuing eligibility controversy could hurt the president's chances of re-election in 2012. Donalyn Dela Cruz, Abercrombie's spokeswoman in Honolulu, ignored again today another in a series of repeated requests made by WND for an interview with the governor. Toward the end of the interview, the newspaper asked Abercrombie: "You stirred up quite a controversy with your comments regarding birthers and your plan to release more information regarding President Barack Obama's birth certificate. How is that coming?" In his response, Abercrombie acknowledged the birth certificate issue will have "political implications" for the next presidential election "that we simply cannot have." Get the free, in-depth special report on eligibility that could bring an end to Obama's presidency Suggesting he was still intent on producing more birth records on Obama from the Hawaii Department of Health vital records vault, Abercrombie told the newspaper there was a recording of the Obama birth in the state archives that he wants to make public. (Story continues below) Abercrombie did not report to the newspaper that he or the Hawaii Department of Health had found Obama's long-form, hospital-generated birth certificate. The governor only suggested his investigations to date had identified an unspecified listing or notation of Obama's birth that someone had made in the state archives. "It was actually written, I am told, this is what our investigation is showing, it actually exists in the archives, written down," Abercrombie said. For seemingly the first time, Abercrombie frankly acknowledged that presidential politics motivated his search for Obama birth records, implying that failure to resolve the questions that remain unanswered about the president's birth and early life may damage his chance for re-election. "If there is a political agenda (regarding Obama's birth certificate), then there is nothing I can do about that, nor can the president," he said. So far, the only birth document available on Obama is a Hawaii Certification of Live Birth that first appeared on the Internet during the 2008 presidential campaign. It was posted by two purportedly independent websites that have displayed a strong partisan bias for Obama – released the COLB in June 2008, and published photographs of the document in August 2008. WND previously reported the Hawaii Department of Health has refused to authenticate the COLB posted on the Internet by and WND has reported that in 1961, Obama's grandparents, Stanley and Madelyn Dunham, could have made an in-person report of a Hawaii birth even if the infant Barack Obama Jr. had been foreign-born. Similarly, the newspaper announcements of Obama's birth do not prove he was born in Hawaii, since they could have been triggered by the grandparents registering the birth as Hawaiian, even if the baby was born elsewhere. Moreover, WND has documented that the address reported in the newspaper birth announcements was the home of the grandparents. WND also has reported that Barack Obama Sr. maintained his own separate apartment in Honolulu, even after he was supposedly married to Ann Dunham, Barack Obama's mother, and that Dunham left Hawaii within three weeks of the baby's birth to attend the University of Washington in Seattle. Dunham did not return to Hawaii until after Barack Obama Sr. left Hawaii in June 1962 to attend graduate school at Harvard University in Cambridge, Mass. Conceivably, the yet undisclosed birth record in the state archives that Abercrombie has discovered may have come from the grandparents registering Obama's birth, an event that would have triggered both the newspaper birth announcements and availability of a Certification of Live Birth, even if no long-form birth certificate existed. WND has also reported that Tim Adams, a former senior elections clerk for the city and county of Honolulu in 2008, has maintained that there is no long-form, hospital-generated birth certificate on file with the Hawaii Department of Health and that neither Honolulu hospital – Queens Medical Center or Kapiolani Medical Center – has any record that Obama was born there.

I’m still wondering why he is number one on the cable networks rating list.


He has the number one prime time slot on the number one news channel = number one in the ratings.

Wife and I stopped watching him a few years ago. His ego is intolerable and he looks out for nobody but himself. He acts like a pervert at times and passes that off as news coverage.

I am not sure our President could even pass a basic security clearance background check given how many holes are in his history and I don’t know where he was born. However, if O’Really (intentional spelling) had a pair he would question every night why Sarah Palin had 20 times the scrutiny that the dem nominee did during the election cycle.

The fact he says, "born in Indonesia or whatever they're puttin' out there" tells me Bill has not even bothered to check the facts. IMHO, if it turns out BO is ineligible to be President, people like Bill are just as much to blame as those in Obama's circle who knew. Bill should at least say Obama has an obligation to open his records. That's not to much to ask. Dr. Phil says, "If you have nothing to hide, you hide nothing." Obama is hiding something.

Bill isn’t a Conservative—he never has been. At best he is a middle of the roader—at worst a blue dog Democrat—light blue with a tinge of pink. He has it in his own mind that the birth issue is settles with the newspaper story (that gave the wrong address) Now, I don’t know where the guy was born—but I still want to see the birth Certificate —what does he have to hide? The truth will come out in the end and it will be the National Enquirer that will publish it in 2017. There will go his presidential library in Chicago.

Thank Heaven for Judge Napolitano, and the rest of the Fox Business evening lineup! O’Gasbag is a has been who has yet to see the off-stage hook coming. He is infinitely more concerned with his ego and getting to stitch and bitch with Zero than getting at the truth. Even Hannity is getting tiresome, although it’s a breath of fresh air to have Colmes gone from that show. Speaking of Colmes, he either has a “sweet heart” contract or he’s performing sexual favors somewhere within Fox. He is such an absolute dolt. I can’t imagine what Monica Crowley’s sister sees in him! And Greta is in love with the sound of her own voice. Count me as a “birther,” if he’s an NB citizen, he should not mind showing us all his BC!

We dropped satellite TV about a year ago. When their sales reps call to “get us back (and they call frequently),” it’s my pleasure to inform them O’Reilly is in no way fair and balanced and the rest of their programming featuring global warming woven into the shows are unwelcome in my home. They’ve forgotten we signed up for “entertainment” instead of the “propaganda” they delivered instead.

I just has some Obamabot trolls from the same Boston IP address turn up on my blog and claim there were no Long Form Certificates issued after 2001. So I researched this and found the bet won by Freeper Danae when she was able to provide a Long Form Certificate for herself in September last year.

So this made me think, why the hell can’t O’Reilly or anyone ask Obama to simply obtain a copy of his own long from certificate as Danae did?

That is all he really has to do to neutralize claims the short form certification is a forgery or has been issued to a non American born citizen.

Unless of course he posts another forgery.
