Is McLachlan In Direct Communication With Birther Mothership?
Hartford Courant ^ | 02/04/2011 | Jim Shea

Posted on 02/05/2011 4:35:15 PM PST by FreeAtlanta

Birthers make up the extreme right wing of the extreme right wing of the extremely right wing right wingers.

You just can't get any farther out on the fringes than these folks and still be able to dip a toe in reality.

Birthers make the people who feared the "New World Order," and saw black government helicopters everywhere seem almost normal. Actually, these folks are of a similar mindset, only the conspiracy theory has changed. posted using frpa

I am not really sure what he really knows what a right winger is (considering most leftist think right wingers are Nazi Fascist, not realizing the Nazi's were Socialist), but whatever his view is, he is nuts.

Doesn't he realize that by nearly all polls, more than 40% of Americans question Obama's place of birth? That makes up a lot of extreme right wing of the extreme right wingers of the extremely right win right wingers. Doesn't he realize that that makes over 100,000,000 of us?

They are smart to fight the problem in this way, as they have no evidence to use to defend Obama. When you don’t have evidence, attack the other side.

Time honored technique, and the right one for the situation. Most Americans think birthers are more nuts than 9/11 truthers, so might as well go with it.

From the article:

No matter how much proof is produced, no matter how many copies of Obama's birth certificate they see...

Doesn't this idiot understand that copies is the issue here!

I could make on my computer a deed to the author's house, with my name as owner, not his, then make a copy of that altered document.

When the author then accept that copied deed as legal and turn his house over to me? Or would he demand to see an original deed stamped with an official seal?

a concerted effort by Conservatives nationwide to defeat Obama in 2012 by denying him a place on the ballot in some states.

The only way this would "deny him a place" is if he cannot prove he's a natural born citizen.

What's the problem?

Sounds like someone is fearing that those "extreme right wingers" could turn out to be correct. What that nutjob can't even fathom is that, it's very easy to prove those right-wingers completely wrong.

Most Americans think birthers are more nuts than 9/11 truthers

I did a search to see what the current poll numbers say. It seems like saying most Americans is an extremly false arguement. I am running into more and more people who are questioning Obama's magical story.

That said, I ran into this "neutral" Washington Compost article from April of last year.

Sizing up the "birthers"

Asked an open-ended question about where President Obama was born, 14 percent of Americans say he was born abroad - giving an incorrect answer that shows how widespread the misunderstanding of his birthplace is nearly a year and a half into his presidency.

Fully 68 percent of those surveyed in a new Washington Post-ABC News poll say, unprompted, that he was born in the United States, including 48 percent who accurately cite Hawaii. Another 9 percent say it's their "best guess" that he was born in this country, bringing the total saying he is U.S.-born to 77 percent. here is the rest... http://voices.washingtonpost.com/behind-the-numbers/2010/05/obama_birthplace.html

How is that for "honest" journalism?

This was interesting, from the one comment posted at the article link

The newspaper announcements from the Honolulu newspapers in 1961 do not list a place of birth. The state of Hawaii registered 336 out-of-state births (confirmed by the CDC's 1961 Natality Report) which would have also been reported in the newspapers.

Obama's father never lived at the address in the newspaper announcement. Obama's mama was in Seattle in August 1961 enrolling for college according to her friend who saw her.

Family friend/Hawaii governor, Neil Abercrombie, failed to find any legal documents corroborating Obama's nativity myth. Obama's jpg, if genuine, would be self-authenticating if presented to a court of law, yet despite all the legal cases, Obama has kept that document out of court...

It isn’t merely a question at this point of where he was born. The question is, what is he hiding.

And he is hiding plenty.

That is why it is better to make a joke about the BC issue to feel out the crowd and find out who you can talk to. Unless you come off way overboard, you might be surprised at the number of people who really are having doubts. The more reassured that we all feel that we can legitimately question “the Big Lie” the quicker the truth can be sorted out and people bought into the lie can be brought toward constructive doubt.

my email to him:

$10 puts the issue to rest

You said “no matter how many copies of the birth certificate” [that Obama shows...]

Dude... this is the entire point

He has never shown a birth certificate. He has show a certification that people born in another country could get.

You DO know that, don’t you?

So...
1) if you don’t know that you are a bad reporter unable to acertain facts

or

2) if you Do know that, then you are something worse...

Jarrett expressed concern over possible newly passed eligibility requirements in states. If only one or two states clarify eligibility in order to run for office, White House will simply use those states as examples of “anti-Obama racism”. They would likely not win the electorals in those states regardless, but could use the scenario to gain sympathy and support over the challenge from other moderate states. This is the tactic Jarrett and crew have prepared. She is worried though that if more than one or two states challenge the president’s eligibility, the issue would turn against them. Measures are being taken to make certain that does not happen. What those measures are, I don’t know at this point.

If this is true, I wonder what their strategies are to stop more states from passing laws? They are already attacking Georgia over trying to pass an immigration bill like Arkansas. It is a shot over the bow, in my opinion. However, at some point, the states have to stand their ground against this bullying. I hope my state has the courage to do it.

“no matter how many copies of Obama’s birth certificate they see...I could make on my computer a deed to the author’s house, with my name as owner, not his, then make a copy of that altered document.”

I wish we could all get that straight.

No copy of any Hawaiian birth certificate has been produced.

None. Not one. Zero. Not an original, not a copy, not a pencil drawing said to be a copy, nothing.

The new governor of the soviet socialist republic of Hawaii, Comrade Vladimir Abercrombie, blathered about how he was going to put paid to this issue once and for all if elected.

After he was elected, though...whoops, can’t find the birth certificate. We were sure it was right here, but now it’s gone. Did somebody borrow it? Come on, now, we’re going to close our eyes for one minute, and whoever has it can return it, no questions asked. Still no?

The only thing that was released was a so-called “Certification of Live Birth.” This is piece of paper issued by the state registrar, promising that there really, really is a birth certificate, cross our hearts and hope to die. Alvin T. Onaka, whose office issued it, didn’t even have the stones to sign it. It bears a rubber-stamp facsimile of his signature.

I’ll bet this is so he can claim he had nothing to do with issuing it when the balloon goes up.

The low-grade moron who wrote that article ridiculed the suggestion that the newspaper birth announcements were falsified by implicitly asserting that this could only be true if people had been planning that early to nominate this vile, loathsome sack of leper butts for president.

Two grandparents who wanted the Kenyan-born bastard offspring of their out-of-control daughter to have US citizenship—which really is a big deal—would do exactly the same thing.

No matter how you spin it, though, we’re left with the fact that the Bamtard is determined to prevent access—including access that would demonstrate the non-existence of the document—when he could make the whole thing go away just by releasing it.

If he has nothing to hide, what is he hiding?

As Alinsky taught us, ridicule is very powerful.

Some Freepers have posted that they have seen one dollar bills with “Where's the Birth Certificate” written in a little bubble coming from George Washington's mouth.

Personally, I leave post-it notes around town: On a box of Rice Krispies in the supermarket, in the bathroom of a restaurant, on the pump at the gas station, on the window of the car next to me in the parking lot, etc.

If only one State passes a law that Obama must show his birth certificate and Obama refuses to run in that state he has admitted that he doesnt have one ,and anyone with half an ounce of brains who isn’t black will not vote for him.

Blacks would vote for him if he admitted right up front that he is Kenyan. The Jews probably would to given their liberal voting record.

The Connecticut bill(SB391) is weak. It requires an original birth certificate but doesn't take into account that term maybe defined differently from one state to the next. Hawaii defines a birth certificate as either a Certificate of live birth, which is the long form, original birth version or the Certification of Live Birth, which is the short form similar to the one Hawaii posted on the internet for BO/BS. The latter doesn't include the hospital where the person was born nor the signature of the attending physician and can be issued to foreign born children. To make matters worse, Hawaii only issues a copy of the COLB when a request is submitted.

The bill also doesn't define "natural born citizen". I contacted McLachlan's office and spoke with an aide who asked me to send my concerns via email, which I did Thursday. I recommended the bill be revised to specify what needs to be in the original form birth certificate and to define natural born as that of a person born in the U.S. of parents who are U.S. citizens per the type of definition in the Law of Nations since the founding fathers referenced it in the Constitution.

Umm. One of the ring leaders of the lawsuits against Obama is Philip J. Berg, a Hilary Clinton Supporter and former Democrat, Pennsylvania deputy attorney general who wanted Clarence Thomas, Antonin Scalia, and Sandra Day O'Connor disbarred. Yeah, sounds like all the birthers are just "right wing fringe." This article is just a baseless smear/ misinformation campaign trying to get the people to accept a false label as truth.
