Just when I thought it was going to be quiet for a while, I've just heard that Leo Berman's Birther bill is scheduled for public hearing tomorrow - don't know what time it all depends on when the house recesses.

Thanks as always, WD, for a great job on the unlovely task of tracking all these things.





You know, this is like waiting for the other shoe to drop. I rather suspect at least one idiot state government will manage to enshrine birther legislation into law this year (or possibly next). If it's going to happen anyway, sometimes I wish they'd just go ahead and get it over with so the challenges games can begin.

Archive video of the yesterday's House State Affairs Committee hearing is at:





[/break1]house.state.tx.us/video-audio/committee-broadcasts/committee-archives/player/?session=82&committee=450&ram=11042011450]http://www.house.state.tx.us/video-audi ... 1042011450





HB 529 starts at about 1:37:37 . I was popping in and out of the live broadcast last night and was lucky(?) enough to catch the relevent part but couldn't post a report.





It wasn't that exciting - Berman introduced the bill, committee took testimony from 3 witnesses in support - two from the Texas Immigration Reform Coalition (I may have the exact name wrong), who seemed to be regulars and one woman representing herself.The chair took the bill as "pending" which seems their normal procedure after public hearings





Slightly different emphasis to other hearings I've viewed. Berman put a lot of emphasis on McCain being questioned and vetted in 2008 and Obama not.He seemed to think that questions about Obama only came up a year or two later so it looks as if he's relatively new to the birther scene.Hector Maldano's case also got a mention.





Berman mentioned AZ veto but had the reason all wrong - he thought it was because it covered all cadidates not just president and VP - but this gave rise to him claiming that this gave TX the opportunity to become the first nation to vet presidential candidates. Freudian slip?





This was towards the end of a long day - it was about 21:00 and the TX house had convened at 10:00 - and it was noticable committee members were coming and going. There were only one or two there listening to Berman.

Thanks, WD.Texas gonna be the first nation to vet the President. :-? Kinda tired of that whole "McCain had to show his" meme. It's not true. Apples Oranges anyway.

Your help needed in TX!!!





I just got off the phone with representative Leo Berman, sponsor of the eligibility bill TX.





The bill is stuck in the House affairs committee. The committee has 7 Republicans, who are committed to passing the bill and 4 Democrats, who will cover for Obama. I need your help in flooding the phone lines of the Chair of the committee Byron Cook. I would particularly appreciate phone calls from his constituency, he is from Corsicana, TX. Let’s push this bill through the committee asap.





Additionally Mr. Berman stated that he introduced another bill, forbidding use of sharia law in TX, similar to OK bill. This bill passed through one committee and is going to the calendar committee. Chairman of the calendar committee is Todd Hunter. Please, call Mr. Hunter, demand that he push it asap.





Lastly, Mr. Berman stated that bills get assigned random number. Guess what random number was assigned to his anti-Sharia law bill? The answer is – 911. It is HB-911!!! Talk about the divine providence!xxx-http://www.orlytaitzesq.com/?p=21065

I think it's safe to call this bill dead .Today is the last day a House Bill can be voted out of a House Committeee. I just saw the minutes of the latest meeting of the State Government Committee and there was no vote on HB529. There is another meeting this evening but that's only dealing with a Senate Bill.Bermann's other bill never even got a hearing.Bye, bye Bermann!

Funny, isn't it, how many of these go bye-bye once it's clear that they won't keep Obama off the ballot?But it isn't about Obama - it's about the Constitution. :^o Sekrit Stuffs!
God bless!
