There's also a call for U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts to intervene on behalf of Lt. Col. Terry Lakin, who is being court-martialed for refusing to serve under Barack Obama. The military man seems destined to lose his "courageous" legal quest to have Obama declared ineligible to be Commander in Chief, laments the site. But Political Vel Craft notes in...

It was a giggle to see the anonymous online hordes argue that an obvious forgery - apparently done by a kindergartner, with crayon - is the president's real birth certificate. There's an undeniable majesty in the pretzel logic employed to argue that Obama's Hawaiian birth certificate, two newspaper announcements, and repeated statements by the state's Republican governor are all part of a 48-year-old conspiracy. But the grand prank that is the "birther" movement needs to be wrapped...

    A naive person might believe that Barack Hussein Obama was born, as he has long said he was, in Hawaii to a young American mother and a distant father from Kenya. There are notices in two local papers and the certification of birth is filed in the state of Hawaii’s records. An independent body — FactCheck.org — part of the Annenberg Public Policy Center at the University of Pennsylvania, asked to see a copy of the original during last year’s campaign. FactCheck is non-partisan and takes all sorts of politicians’ claims to task. Here’s its take on Obama’s birth certificate:...

My candidate for the Dobbies this year is the "birther" movement, which claims that President Obama's Hawaiian birth certificate is not kosher, and, therefore, he may not have been born on American soil. Was he even born in American airspace? Was he even born in American outer space? Good questions, all raised by this supposedly dubious...

"He was born in Panama, but it was a U.S. territory at the time." "No, it's Obama. He was born in Hawaii, and Hawaii wasn't a state yet." "Hawaii became a state in 1959," I busted out with some grade-school civics class knowledge. And then, there it was, the thing...

    It used to be tough and unrewarding to be a crank. You had to communicate by inky mimeograph. The big media monopolies refused to accept your calls. Your neighbours ignored you or laughed at you. How that has changed! Modern communication technology has empowered cranks, enabling them to build entire virtual crank communities. It has multiplied the number of media outlets --and thus the number of hours to fill -- creating new crank opportunities on radio and television. Among the greatest beneficiaries of these new opportunities: the cranks known as "birthers." The birthers claim that U. S. President Barack Obama...

In dealing with insufferable people, for example, I find that repeating the mantra ``This too shall pass'' or ``It could be worse'' can make any interaction tolerable. When it comes to an attitude adjustment, dogged repetition works wonders. Facts, however, don't bend to insistence. I wish the ``birthers'' would face up to that. Claiming that President Obama is not a native-born U.S. citizen, repeating it on talk shows, websites and blogs, won't make it so. He was born in Honolulu,...

Some hold out the view that politics in a free society can be about truth, because all the lies get aired and get rebutted, and the truth emerges.

    The Orly Taitz circus must be shut down. First, Taitz is professionally incompetent. She is a dentist with a questionable law degree. She knows as much about law as I know about filling teeth (because she was trained in Israel, I assume she is an excellent dentist; but who knows?). Second, most of Taitz’ conspiracy claims originate in disinformation. I don’t know who creates all of this disinformation, but I have a strong suspicion. Third, Taitz exercises no professional discipline, and manifests professional incompetence, by filing claims and documents with courts when these claims and documents have no arguable validity.

Russian-born lawyer, dentist and estate agent Orly Taitz, on the eve of Obama’s 48th birthday, told CNN’s David Shuster: “Your listeners need to know the truth”.

    I was watching the opening of Glenn Beck's TV show a short time ago. He was talking about the DNC ad claiming the Republican party sending mobs to town hall meetings to oppose BO's socialist health care plan. One clip from the ad showed a woman at a town hall meeting in Delaware showing her birth certificate and asking why BO can't do the same to prove he is a natural born citizen. Beck then made the observation they had to use a clip of a "birther Idiot". The term birther couldn't be more misleading since it refers to people...

    Democracy For Vancouver ^ | August 5, 2009
    For the last few days I have been trying to shake the overwhelming sense that we have all been flipped into a novel, an outrageous conflation of 1984, The Manchurian Candidate, and Idiot America. In this version, O’Brien need not torture Winston into believing that five is actually four, because the part of Winston has been hijacked by Orly Taitz. And Orly is maniacally, manically angry that Big Brother hasn’t yet posted Goldstein’s long-form birth certificate on the telescreen. We’re not even in Kansas anymore – the proles voting against their own interests for the benefit of an ever-greater Oceania...

    OBAMA BIRTH CERTIFICATE SPOTTED IN BOGUS MOON LANDING FOOTAGEAugust 5, 2009 Tardy though they are, we welcome MSNBC to finally joining every major conservative news outlet -- including Fox News, The American Spectator, Human Events, National Review and Sweetness & Light -- in discrediting the idea that President Obama wasn't born in this country and, therefore, is ineligible to be president. Now the big question: Was Joe Biden born on this planet? Inasmuch as the "birther" movement was hatched in the station wagon of MSNBC's favorite left-wing fantasist, Larry Johnson, maybe the mainstream media can stop acting as if it's...

    I've never really been called a "Broad" -- but I've been told that once upon a time it was actually a compliment. A Broad could hold her liquor, make a guy laugh, comment about a ballgame... Think Maclaine or Dickinson in the Rat Pack days. I like to think I'm a Broad. (Ok the liquor thing -- not so much anymore. I'm a lightweight now. Practically a teetotaler.)Shirley Maclaine when she was a fun broad -- not a New Age quack.And I've managed seldom to be called a "Witch with a B" -- to my face anyway. I deliberately chose a husband who does not use such...
  • Dear Freepers, Oppose Obama on the issues, not his alleged legitimacy (he really is legit)

    In my personal opinion, Obama is a disaster for America. I believe future historians will describe this period as the OBAMA CATASTROPHE - the time when America collectively lost its mind and voted for a man and a group of leftists who quickly destroyed the nation in favor of socialism and income redistribution. However, if people want to save the American nation and way of life - the best and most benevolent society in human history; opposition must be passionate and RATIONAL. The entire legitimacy or birther issue is indeed passionate but definitely not rational. It has been frustrating to...

    LUNACY in America has become so bad that, last night on a cable news TV network, Orly Taitz, the queen of the “birther” movement, called those who believe that Barack Obama is an American citizen by birth “brownshirts”. Birthers are the fringe lunatics challenging Obama’s eligibility to be president of the United States. They insist that he is not a natural-born citizen — a US constitutional requirement for the presidency. Brownshirts were the armed and uniformed Nazi party militia of 1930s Germany — the Sturmabteilung. Russian-born lawyer, dentist and estate agent Taitz, on the eve of Obama’s 48th birthday yesterday,...

    Aug. 5, 2009 | There are, sadly, a lot of Birthers out there. A recent poll showed that 11 percent of Americans -- including 28 percent of Republicans -- don't believe President Obama was born in the U.S. Another 12 percent aren't sure. So, at some point, you're likely to find out that a friend or relative is a Birther. Your Uncle Floyd will forward you a chain e-mail that says Obama was actually born in Kenya and there's a Kenyan birth certificate that proves it and hundreds of government officials and reporters are in on a conspiracy to hide...

    On Aug. 2 there came to light a birth certificate showing that Barack Obama was born in Coast General Hospital in Mombasa, Kenya in 1961. It was published far and wide, but was quickly shown to be a forgery: It says it was issued by the Republic of Kenya on Feb. 17, 1964, before there was a Republic of Kenya, and when Kenya was still a British Dominion. Who would have an interest in publishing such an obvious forgery at this time? How did the Obama birth certificate question, so widely ridiculed by both the left and the right, become...

    Silly me. Silly you. Here we were thinking that the presidential election of 2008 was over and done with in—well, in 2008. And that the winner was a certain junior senator from the great state of Illinois, who rolled up a victory margin of landslide proportions (at least by modern-day standards, and certainly by George W. Bush standards, to pick a name at random). Anyway, you were somehow under the impression that all of that was settled business. Fat chance. Not that you were expecting the loyal opposition to roll over and play dead. That was never in the cards—not...

    Orly Taitz, the Birther lawyer who released the document that was supposedly a copy of President Obama's Kenyan birth certificate, has now taken to her blog with an angry screed in response to the evidence that her find is in fact a poorly done forgery.Referring to the discovery that the purportedly Kenyan document was almost certainly based on a copy of a birth certificate issued for an Australian man, David Jeffrey Bomford, Taitz writes, "Recently Obama’s thugs in main stream (sic) media came up with this Bomford report in order to stop my efforts in exposing and prosecuting Obama. Though...

    PM, a series on the Australian Broadcast Channel, tracked down David Bomford, the man whose Australian birth certificate was used as the basis for the forged “Obama Kenyan birth certificate” that Orly Taitz posted online Sunday. The key bit of the interview: DINA ROSENDORFF: Looking over the documents in question Mr Bomford still can’t quite believe his eyes. DAVID JEFFREY BOMFORD: It’s little old me and my mum and everything else up there. Oh I definitely confirm that the birth certificate was mine. That was quite easy to see – my address, even the style of the birth certificate was...
