It's fun to read their posts on Jan. 3. They had such high hopes.

Looks like FR has removed 'certifigate', 'birthcertificate' and 'naturalborncitizen' from the popular keywords list. I wonder if Jimbo has decided that there's no more juice in that lemon?

The problem, you see, is that judges have this tendency to follow precedent:


Also, in a discussion of what the law is, he thinks it's an appeal to popular opinion if you cite actual judicial decisions on the law:

And now I am beginning to think you are stupid. Again! With that non sequitur!

Let me make this very clear for you. I do not give a D@MN what a Court says about this issue, ESPECIALLY one that has not looked at the evidence. *YOU* may need a minder to tell you what to think, but the rest of us are intelligent enough to research this ourselves and find out what the founders meant.


Yeah! It's not like the role of the courts is to interpret the law or anything like that...

Freep goes full circle to early 2008 and "Obama is an Arab" (casual racism duly noted.)

I think one or both of his claimed parents are NOT his parent at all and his whole stated history contains only small elements of reality woven in with a lot of stuff made up of whole cloth.

I'd like for someone to get a hold of his DNA and find out if he really is the first "black/half black" President. It wouldn't surprise me at all if he is an Arabic or some other ethnic with darker colored skin. Many who are not "black" are darker skinned than he. Wouldn't it be amazing for black people who blindly voted for him because he was black to find out it was a trick? I wonder how many would refuse to believe it even if it was proved that he wasn't black?

The reply quotes "Dr. Jack Wheeler" instead of Kenneth Lamb, though:

If Dr. Jack Wheeler is to be believed then even if both parents are as claimed then he is no more than one sixteenth black. He would be fifty percent Caucasian from his mother and Wheeler says his claimed father was only one eighth black and seven eighths Arab.

entire brand new post nicely exhibiting classic wingnut projection and victimhood:

Let's Tell The Truth: America is NOT Racist!

| 02-27-12 | Veritas2002

It is racism, plain and simple, that got Barack Obama elected president. When 98% of Black people pulled the lever for Obama, that's racism (probably the same 98% of Blacks who said OJ Simpson was innocent of murdering his White estranged wife).

No, America is not racist but the people who point their fingers at the rest of us ARE the most racist you can find. Contrary to what Martin Luther King Jr asserted, Obama was elected based on the color of his skin. You cannnot get any more racist than that.


[yadayada ...]

It is NOT the average American who is racist in this country - it IS the minority group of vocal LEFTISTS in this country who call everyone else racist who are the REAL racists. They play the race card wherever it can be played.

What will stop this? Only when we call out the true racists in this country - those Blacks who play the race card to eek out advantages for themselves - with the government, in the workplace, in the supermarket. In addition to them, we need to call out those who are intent on calling America a racist country. That is designed to make us feel guilty for injustices we have allegedly done. That has to stop. We need to call the accusers just what they are - the REAL racists since they are the ones talking about race all the time.

The worst thing that Leftist communists worry about is that 1) the race card will no longer play among White people and 2) that Black people will wake up and see that it is not in their personal long term interest to play the race card. It is NOT in the interest of any Black person to play the victim so that the Communists can use them to assert power over the rest of us.

Whenever I see this racist screed, I wonder whether I really want to go to the coast for the annual huge family Easter dinner. I have gotten this twice now as a direct charge from a person who is nominally sane, and I have skipped two possible encounters. Way back in Spring 2008, he said that if Obama were elected, he would fire half his staff in his investment firm. He still sees a double-dip recession on the way. And he thinks that the employment statistics are simply lies. I don't usually raise my voice in conversations, but I did then. Some of my friends have worked diligently to maintain the integrity of those statistics against any administration that tried to monkey with them.

When a right wingers starts quoting the U6 figure as the real unemployment figure, I simply agree that its the better definition. Then I point out under Bush unemployment was 9.25% and they usually grow quiet.

The U6 was 15.4% in January, 2009 & 16.0% in February, 2009. This January the U6 was 16.2%. All figures are not seasonally adjusted. More work to be done, but we are on the right trajectory.

I was averaging Bush's entire term. Because usually when quoting the U6 figure for Obama, a right winger will quote the more widely used U3 figure for Bush.

Mostly wrong, but reading the dissent lets us know that the Chief Justice thought that the opinion (from which he was dissenting) meant that Mongols whose parents weren't citizens, and their like, could by virtue of the majority opinion, become NBCs and even be elected POTUS.

Given the choice between Mario Apuzzo's legal stylings or Chief Justice Fuller's dissent on the meaning of Wong Kim Ark, hmmm, which should I choose?

hawaii? why, it's barely even a state!

Today, you can apparently be born under foreign paternity on a remote, multicultural, migratory island hub way out in the Pacific ocean, move to Indonesia with your foreign, non-citizen step-father, attend school under the name and religious identity of that patriarch, then suddenly reappear back on the island four years later under suspicious circumstances without any evidence of repatriation, and none of these circumstances prompts anyone in our government or media to ever so much as question your claim to Natural-born eligibility.

From MY reading, Hawaii was only given State status as a Trade to the Democrats for agreeing to allow Republican Alaska into the Union. Were it on it's own merits, it likely wouldn't have been a state at all, but would have instead been "a remote multicultural, migratory island hub way out in the Pacific ocean" classified as a "territory."


mr rogers wrote:
Is Hawaii a state, and was it so in the 1960s?

Yes. Just as much a state as Iowa, Virginia or Utah.


faucetman wrote:
Hawaii became a state in 1959. Only two years later Obama is born there (supposedly). Hawaii is still in transition from “a remote, multicultural, migratory island hub way out in the Pacific ocean”, to a state, with goofy laws that allow anyone, no matter where they were born, to become a citizen of Hawaii, thus a citizen of the United States. Obama may have obtained his Hawaiian birth certificate (if he even has one) in this manner.


Ha Ha Thats Very Logical wrote:
Wait, is this the new birther line of attack? That Hawaii somehow wasn't a "real" state but some kind of semi-state that hadn't really earned its statehood yet? People have been joking for years that birthers would eventually start demanding Hawaii's statehood certificate--has that day come?

But seriously: do you guys accept that Hawaii qualified as one of the United States for Article II purposes, or not? If so, why even bring up its remoteness or its multiculturalness--isn't that irrelevant?


DiogenesLamp wrote:
I cannot speak for faucetman, but my point was that Hawaii was just BARELY a state, and had the Republicans not tried to make a deal with the Democrats, it is possible that it wouldn't have been a state at all. It would still have been a territory though, so the jurisdiction argument would still apply.

Apart from that, I believe faucetman is pointing out that a territory newly transformed into a state might not have been so picky about the veracity of their records.

... What this means is that unlike all the other states(as far as I know) Hawaii is the ONLY state that you cannot trust on the question of whether or not a child was really born there.


Ha Ha Thats Very Logical wrote:
I think that for the purposes of this discussion, "barely a state" is like "a little bit pregnant." Can we agree that birth in Hawaii counts as birth in the United States, and skip the "remote, multicultural, migratory island hub" nonsense?

Oh absolutely. I count birth in Hawaii as birth *IN* the United States. I was not trying to suggest otherwise, I was merely pointing out that Hawaii was an "accidental" state. ...

I would like to see the Birfers shit a brick when after WWII instead of cutting loose of the Phillipines. we had made it several states because of the population distribution.

When will Puerto Rico ever become a state? Commonwealth status has it's benefits.

Imagine an ad where Exxon and Chevron joined forces to offer gasoline free of charge for the summer if Obama would produce a legitimate birth certificate, one that would be legally verifiable in a court of law.

They could make this offer at no risk of ever having to follow through on it because as we all know, such a document does not exist.

What a historic way to save a nation, free of charge.
