What the Obama Birthers Are Handing Out

Tuesday, June 30, 2009 at 12:47 pm

According to a podcast recorded by the Birthers who are walking around Washington handing out “Citizen’s Grand Jury presentments,” they’re delivering a package that includes some of the indictments handed down by the dubiously-legal juries as a well as this letter from a retired Navy man (after the jump). Typos in original.

Obviously, the citizen grand juries don't have any proofreaders…

Even the dumbest, most KoolAid-soaked BHO fan (probably) realizes that Weigel is engaging in a strawman. Not all those he refers to as “birthers” believe whatever is in the letter above.

Here's my real reporting on this issue. I've issued the challenge on that page to Weigel repeatedly, and he's repeatedly refused to do something as simple as picking up the phone. What sort of reporter would refuse to confirm their assumptions? The Weigel kind, of course.

Dude, your so called “real” reporting is full of holes. You cite a law that allows foreign born children to get a COLB, but fail to mention it was enacted in 1982- Which is over 20 years after PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA was born.

How about you do some more “real” reporting and come up with actual evidence that he was born in Kenya or Indonesia or somewhere other than what is on record… some actual, physical proof other than a lack of proof and your own confimatory bias.

Put up or Shut up.

Walter Francis Fitzpatrick is a bitter man. He was court martialed. That chip on his shoulder is an ugly thing.

These fantasy grand jury participants may want to investigate state laws regarding a pesky little thing called Simulating Legal Process. Just saying…

Dave, thanks for all the coverage of this birfoon insanity!

” real reporting”. LOL!

California has a code similar to HRS 338-17.8:

“103500. A certification of birth or of birth data issued by an agency of the government of the United States to authenticate a birth of a child to a United States citizen outside of the United States may be recorded in the office of a county recorder in the last county of permanent residence of one or both parents of the child if the last permanent residence in the United States of one or both parents of the child was in California.

103505. A certification of birth outside of the United States, upon recordation by the county recorder, shall be indexed in the county recorder's birth index in the year of occurrence of the birth.”

HRS 338-17.8 does NOT say that the place of birth will be fraudulently changed to Hawaii. Most likely the statute is in the support of the Hawaii Homelands program so that the child's Hawaiian lineage is documented.

[...] Perfect place to make your stand against the illegal/unholy reign of the Barack of Obama. Turn in your “citizen indictments” when Congress is out of session. Brilliant. [...]

Crazy can be so awesome and profound in its execution as to be a kind of art in itself. Too bad these morons didn't let out a peep when CheneyBush was wiping its collective legal perineum with the Constitution and Declaration of Independence.

Can anyone make a rational case why Magna Carta applies to the United States?

The legalese might look more impressive if he could spell “impostor.”

These people are dangerous. And I mean that in the most serious way it can be understood.

Why don't they just say, “… because he's black”? That's the real problem here.

Why is Obama hiding his original birth certificate? He has created a big mess. Plus cost a lot of money. Granted there might be some embarrassing information on his original birth certificate. That Obama might want to keep hidden. But other than that – what is his problem?
