Joseph Farah’s Big Birther Speech

By

NASHVILLE — WorldNetDaily Editor-in-Chief Joseph Farah gave a 40-minute dinner speech to the National Tea Party Convention and spent at least 10 minutes of it on jokes and meandering observations about the citizenship of President Barack Obama. The strangeness started with a joke about an “international medical convention” where an American doctor bragged about putting a guy with “no birth certificate and no brain” into the White House. Then Farah shared his ambition to make sure that “signs saying ‘Where’s the Birth Certificate’” appear at every Obama campaign stop in 2012.

Those comments got a positive reaction from the audience, but I felt Farah start to lose the room when he entered a long digression on how, in his view, there was more proof that Jesus Christ was born than proof that Obama was born in Hawaii. Farah moved on — but later, he joked that he couldn’t say how old Obama was “because he doesn’t have a birth certificate.” That got applause — and when he finished, he got a short standing ovation.

I was very shocked, but very relived that Farah took this route in his address.

I think this will further prove that this is not a legitimate political party at all, it is merely a group of loon extremists disenchanted with Obama, a black man, in the White House.

I hope this is covered in the press this weekend and in the weeks to come, often and hourly.

Our country needs to see the tape of this loon and realize what will happen to this great country if these people come into power.

One additional thought, I bet Sarah Palin will be advised not to show up for tomorrow evening after the address Mr. Farah gave.

I bet some at Fox News will also tell her not to show up, that it could potentially hurt her political career with mainstream voters, the very voters she needs to win over.

I'm sure CPAC is kicking themselves for not allowing Joseph Farah a speaking role judging by the “standing ovation” he received at the Tea Party Convention.

THIS is the issue we cannot allow to be swept under the carpet.
'I don't know whether Obama's a U.S. citizen'
Tennessee state Senate speaker and gubernatorial candidate Ron Ramsey has joined the growing ranks of officials and prominent commentators who say they are unsure of whether President Barack Obama is a U.S. citizen. Still wondering which citizenship Obama/Soetoro/Saetoro carried into adulthood & that would be on his Occidental College records which he refuses to release. Just on the face of it that his father was a foreigner Obama cannot qualify to run for president. Plus he lived as an Indonesian, travelled to Pakistan as something other than a US citizen, his Grandma Obama said he was born in Kenya, an official Kenyan Birth Certificate is in the possession of the courts, newspapers have reported he is “Kenyan-born”, Obama had it on his own website at one time and former-ambassador/presidential candidate Alan Keyes heard Obama admit it. How much doubt needs to be cast on this usurper before he gets removed from office?

He “lived as an Indonesian?” Oh no! He's experienced life in another country! He's a scary furriny furriner! Run, or he'll infect us with his furriner cooties! Only a scary UnAmurican furriner would live in another country, unless he was wearing a uniform and carrying a gun, or of course, converting heathens to Jesus-y-ness. Then it would be allright.
I wonder what color the sky is in crazy birtherworld.

Here is what Ron Ramsey's office said about that:

“The state of Hawaii has already answered that in no uncertain terms.”

Sad for you.

The Tea Party convention has turned into a freak show with the likes of Tom Tancredo, Joseph Farah and Rick Scarborough. In other words, the extremist fringe of American politics.

And Sarah Palin has agreed to be the main event at the freak show.

Only a genuine idiot thinks that a verified birth certificate isn't proof of someone's birth. Any politician dumb enough to side with the 'birthers' should be voted out of office immediately.

Agreed.

You know I am really shocked that this wasn't the headline on the Huffington Post, his detour into Birther insanity is a really big story IMHO.

The country needs to see how much these people are out of the main stream.

Facts are stubborn things. Which is why I empathize with your decision to stick with your alternate reality.

“Just on the face of it that his father was a foreigner Obama cannot qualify to run for president.”

Absurd. The citizenship of a person's parents has nothing to do with whether a person born in the United States is a natural born citizen. Show me one case from the history of U.S. jurisprudence which provides otherwise.

“Plus he lived as an Indonesian, travelled to Pakistan as something other than a US citizen”

Again, zero evidence. Obama traveled to Pakistan in 1981 when there were no restrictions on the ability of U.S. citizens to travel there. If you believe otherwise, let's see some proof.

“his Grandma Obama said he was born in Kenya”

Let's turn to the actual transcript:

MCRAE (investigator): When I come in December. I would like to come by the place, the hospital, where he was born. Could you tell me where he was born? Was he born in Mombasa?

OGOMBE (translator for Sarah Obama): No, Obama was not born in Mombasa. He was born in America.

MCRAE: Whereabouts was he born? I thought he was born in Kenya.

OGOMBE: No, he was born in America, not in Mombasa.

MCRAE: Do you know where he was born? I thought he was born in Kenya. I was going to go by and see where he was born.

OGOMBE: Hawaii. Hawaii. Sir, she says he was born in Hawaii. In the state of Hawaii, where his father was also learning, there. The state of Hawaii.

“an official Kenyan Birth Certificate is in the possession of the courts”

Which court? Which case? Has the court authenticated it?

“newspapers have reported he is “Kenyan-born”"

Newspapers have also erroneously said he was Indonesian born. What matters is what the COLB says. And the COLB says he was born in Hawaii.

“Obama had it on his own website at one time”

What are you talking about?

“former-ambassador/presidential candidate Alan Keyes heard Obama admit it”

Evidence, please.

So when does Obama leave office? If he is not suppose to be our president, then what is the proceedures to get him out of there? I am not sure this has ever happen in our country, so no one knows what to do about it. Is that the problem? Well, I think that someone needs to do something and get him out of the White House before he destroys this county completly. Maybe he is making all these mistakes and mess because he does not belong in that office. He is not qualified and ran for election and won. Seems to me that he should be brought up on fraud charges. Is that not what he is doing? Commiting fraud? Along with all his crew? I keep hearing the complaints about his birth place not being in the United States, but nothing is being done!!!!!!! Seems like if he was not qualified to run for office, we need to have another election and put someone in there that wants to do it right and is not there for his own greedy purposes. I do not trust my government right now, because of this president. If there is something to be done, can we do it soon, I am really worried about my country, my government, and my own security? This guy really scares me.
