Skip to comments.Scoot Blog: Have Republican leaders let down the ?Birthers??
Posted on 08/05/2013 10:57:17 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
Maybe it is something we should have known all along: Right-wing rocker Ted Nugent is a birther!
Last week, during one of his many anti-Obama rants, Nugent referred to President Obamas phony birth certificate and then implied that Obama is a Muslim. Nugent was reacting to President Obama suggesting that some Republicans are spending too much time on what Obama called, the phony scandals of his administration.
Ted Nugents top reference to the claim that Barak Obama is not a U.S. citizen is Arizonas Sheriff Joe Arpaio. Arpaio was one of the most outspoken public figures in suggesting that Obamas birth certificate was a fake and that Obama was not born on U.S. soil.
The sheriff insisted that Obama was not born in the U.S., even after the White House released Obamas long-form birth certificate.
Sarah Palin, Donald Trump, Sheriff Arpaio and countless far-right radio talk show hosts have been among the loudest birther voices, which seemed to quiet down in 2011. The anti-Obama website, WND, continues to fuel the birther and other conspiracies about Barak Obama.
If Barak Obama was not born on U.S. soil and has presented a phony birth certificate, then one question remains why have the most powerful Republican leaders not pursued this controversy? Is it fair to say that the Republican Partys top leaders have turned their backs on the conservative birthers in America? And why would they do that?
I often speak about the United States of Hysteria, a nation within a nation that quickly becomes hysterical over certain issues. In my opinion, birthers are citizens in the U.S.H. and have been riled up mostly by ridiculous and baseless Internet chat and blogs from those people who seem desperate to believe that any and all suspicions about Barak Obama are true.
Birthers should be more concerned about the leaders of the party they align themselves most closely with, rather than condemn what they call the liberal media. If you are a birther, where is your outage over the Republican Partys abject failure to reveal that Barak Obama is not a U.S. citizen and should not be President of the United States? Unless, Republicans, too, are part of a big conspiracy!
For those who will be quick to criticize me for defending President Obama let me set the record straight this is not an attempt to defend Obama as much as it is an effort to defend myself as a radio talk show host. Criticism is something that is part of my business, but I try to avoid setting myself up for easy criticism by promoting a cause that has no legitimate credibility or force behind it.
During the election last year, Birthers discredited the Republican Party with their dedication to a condemning campaign that was easily countered with facts. But that doesnt mean there are not still many who refuse to believe the facts. Just because you dont want something to be true, doesnt mean its not true.
And if it was determined that Barak Obama is not a U.S. citizen, John McCain or Mitt Romney would not be president. VP Joe Biden would become president and with a swift signature he would keep in place every bill signed by President Obama.
Ted Nugent and all the other birthers should focus their attention on legitimate criticism of the Obama Administration and not the phony claim that Obama was not born in Hawaii. Im convinced that if there were photos of Obamas head crowning during birth, there would still be those refusing to accept a truth they dont want to be true.
And if you do have proof that Barak Obama is not a citizen would you please forward it to my email address: Scoot@WWL.com? I would love to have that breaking news on my show first!
Hussein has a FORGED BC!!!!! He is a PROVEN ID THIEF!!!!!
Boy, this guy really doesn’t get it. I guess I’m not missing much by having no clue who he is.
Scoot commenting on something he knows nothing about. What else is new?
Polar bears and penguins live on opposite sides of the world, so I suspect that photo lacks some authenticity.
This old boy is completely bonkers. I have seen quite a bit of evidence over the years that there are serious questions that exist concerning mr. obama’s authenticity in quite a few things, and his fraudulent birth certificate is but one in that troublesome grouping. Look at how much evidence has been compiled by Sheriff Joe alone!
Obama could have been born on the steps of the Lincoln monument for all I care, the fact remains the BC they passed off to the media is an OBVIOUS FORGERY!!!
A BAD FORGERY AT THAT!!!
Polar bears and penguins live on opposite sides of the world, so I suspect that photo lacks some authenticity.
Penguins USED to live at the north pole....
There is a reason they stay at the south pole...
Me too. I have never heard of him.
What is the FR handle of this O apologist liar?
I don’t think they use ipads, drink beer, or listen to music either, but.. point taken.
> “The sheriff insisted that Obama was not born in the U.S., even after the White House released Obamas long-form birth certificate.”
I don’t remember Sheriff Arpaio or any of his office or volunteers claiming Obama was not born in the US.
I remember clear evidence of birth certificate forgery.
This guy doesn’t get it...I’m a birther and always will be, what matters is obama is a fraud, and submitted a fraudulent birth certificate as eligibility for president.
As far as republicans and democrats are concerned, they are all complicit in fraud, and should be prosecuted. I know that will never happen, for there is no one currently in the gov’t structure to pursue prosecution.
I’m proud to be a birther, and proud to be ridiculed by such as this writer, and stand with Nugent on this matter.
If Obama does not have the dollar I will be happy to lend him a dollar and he will have 50 cents left over. Why has he spent millions fighting what I can do for less than a dollar?
Scoot practically lives in the bars on Bourbon St. in the French Quarter.
“And if you do have proof that Barak Obama is not a citizen would you please forward it to my email address: Scoot@WWL.com? I would love to have that breaking news on my show first!”
Scoot, Obama has to be a natural born Citizen to be president, not a Citizen (like Ted Cruz).
When was Sarah Palin ever a voice for birthers?
Never, as far as I recall. These people don’t let things like “facts” and “truth” slow them down.
It’s too bad that Obama’s birth certificate isn’t housed under Texas law.
Here’s a link to the Hawaii law governing access to a birth certificate:
Note point 9 of the statute. Anyone who gets a judge to issue a court order for inspection of the original birth certificate can gain access. A congressional subpoena also has the same force of law as a judge’s court order. In five years no committee of Congress has ever issued a subpoena for inspection of Obama’s birth certificate.
Nero, helps if you can read before you try to make a pointless point. The law says a “court of competent jurisdiction.” IOW, the HI DOH can ignore any court that it doesn’t think is a court of competent jurisdiction. And how do you divine a congressional committee as a court of competent jurisdiction?? Congress is not a court.
Also, you’ve already shown in another thread how the DOH has gone out of its way to fight lawsuits that try to take advantage of one of Hawaii’s sunshine laws. I’m not seeing how Texas law would make them behave any differently.
Me too. I did my homework (enough, at a couple of thousand hours) on this issue, and am perfectly willing to talk to anyone I meet who will listen, about the ongoing fraud regarding this con man's theft of the Executive. You'd be surprised how many people have no clue, but whose jaws hit the floor when you explain just a sampling of the bs surrounding this dude.
:D at your comments
Question for Scoot re his statement.”... countless far-right radio talk show hosts...”
Which ones were EVER talking about o’s eligibility (or lack thereof)?
Edge919 conveniently omits that a CONGRESSIONAL SUBPOENA carries the same force of law as a court order from a court of competent jurisdiction.
“Congress can subpoena witnesses, or force them to testify under oath, before its committees. This authority comes from the Constitution’s grant to Congress of all legislative powers (Article 1, Section 1). Witnesses are subpoenaed to provide information that will assist committees in preparing legislation. In the case of Mc-Grain v. Daugherty (1927), the Supreme Court recognized that Congress could subpoena even private citizens to testify. The Court noted that since not everyone would volunteer needed information, some means of compulsion are essential to obtain what is needed. Witnesses who refuse to respond to a congressional subpoena, or refuse to give information (unless they invoke their 5th Amendment protection against self-incrimination) may be found in contempt of Congress and sent to prison.
The most famous use of the congressional subpoena occurred in 1973, when the Senate Select Committee on Presidential Campaign Activities (popularly known as the Watergate Committee) subpoenaed the tape recordings that President Richard M. Nixon had secretly made of White House conversations. This was the first time that Congress had ever subpoenaed a President. Nixon tried to withhold the tapes, claiming executive privilege (the right of the President not to release internal documents of the administration to the Congress). The courts ruled that the President could not use executive privilege as blanket protection, but the White House then released only a heavily edited version of the tapes. In June 1974, in United States v. Nixon, the Supreme Court ruled that executive privilege was a limited power and that the President must turn over all of the requested tapes to a special prosecutor investigating the Watergate incident. The opening of these tapes led Congress to begin impeachment proceedings against the President, causing Nixon to resign.”—Oxford Guide to the U.S. government
Has there ever been a congressional investigation into Obama’s eligibility?
Imagine that, the Attorneys General of Hawaii, who is the attorney for HDOH (both the previous Republican A.G. and the current Democrat A.G.) defending the laws of the state of Hawaii and finding that judges of state courts, state appeals courts, the state Supreme Court and the U.S. District Court all agree with their position that privacy/tangible interest provisions of Hawaii Revised Statute 338-18 take precedence over UIPA requests for OPEN records.
“The state of Hawaii has stated that the President was born there, that’s good enough for me.”—John Boehner (R-OH) on Meet The Press.
Edge919 says: “Nero, helps if you can read before you try to make a pointless point. The law says a court of competent jurisdiction. IOW, the HI DOH can ignore any court that it doesnt think is a court of competent jurisdiction. And how do you divine a congressional committee as a court of competent jurisdiction?? Congress is not a court.”
It is never a good idea to ignore ANY court, and back here in the real world, HDOH has responded to every legal challenge concerning Barack Obama’s vital records and they have responded, IN COURT.
Judges tend to get upset when they are ignored and they issue Contempt of Court citations which allow them to imprison anyone who defies their authority until the court is no longer ignored.
There have been twelve Obama birth certificate-related lawsuits filed against officials of the state government in Hawaii. Not all of them involved HDOH and not all of them were based on UIPA.

Sorry, but you're making an irrelevant argument. The HI law is speaking specifically about a "court of competent jurisdiction." The subpoena power held by Congress still does NOT make it a court. You're desperation to make it equivalent is pointless because the partisan Congress is not going to subpoena the DOH for any Obama records.
Thank you, thank you, thank you for proving my point over and over. Knowing that the UIPA GIVES any HI agency the power to disclose virtually ANY record protected by other laws, show me the lawsuit where the HI DOH took advantage of that law to disclose Obama’s records, especially AFTER Gov. Abercrombie took office and pledged that he would find and disclose Obama’s alleged birth certificate?? When did they do it?? Why didn’t they do it and why did they fight EVERY attempt when they didn’t need to??
