Health Director Dr. Chiyome Fukino said Monday she has seen the original birth records that verify Obama was born in Hawaii, and is a "natural-born American citizen."
Fukino made the announcement in hopes of ending any lingering rumors about Obama's citizenship. She issued a similar press release Oct. 31.
Of course the wingnuts like Orly Taitz, Phil Berg and Andy Martin will continue their relentless and sadistic assault on Obama, his good name, his reputation, ANYTHING they can do to discredit or insult him, supposedly based upon constitutional reasons. Let's face it, many of these attacks are racially inspired.
Andy Martin has a history of making anti-Semitic and racially charged comments, such as claiming that "African-American judges ... circle the wagons and try to protect Barry [Obama]" and that "African-Americans are willing to corrupt and abuse their-public offices to defend their own sleazy candidate for office." The Chicago Tribune and several federal courts have stated that Martin has called a judge a "crooked, slimy Jew, who has a history of lying and thieving common to members of his race." In October 2008, Martin appeared on Fox News' Hannity's America and smeared Obama by claiming he was "training for a radical overthrow of the government" as a community organizer.
Martin is running for the U.S. Senate in 2010, wrote a derogatory book on Obama and is now releasing a documentary entitled, "Obama, the Hawaii Years". Obviously, Mr. Obama's name is money in the bank for the undisciplined Martin.
In 2005, Philip Berg was fined and sanctioned $10,000 for having committed a "laundry list of unethical actions."
The Queen Wingnut, however, is Orly Taitz. She has accused the following federal officials of treason and called for their indictments:
"Other attorneys should look to Mr. Berg's actions as a blueprint for what not to do when attempting to effectively and honorably perform the duties of the legal profession," Joyner wrote.
"This court has grown weary of Mr. Berg's continuous and brazen disrespect toward this court and his own clients. Mr. Berg's actions ... are an enormous waste of judicial time and resources that this court cannot, in good conscience, allow to go unpunished," Joyner wrote."
a) All the justices of the Supreme Court,
b) All the members of the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate,
c) Attorney General Eric Holder, Solicitor General Elena Kagan, and other federal officers,
d) and, of course, President Obama himself.
There you have it, birthers. Your Birther Hall of Fame: Berg, Taitz and Martin. The Three Stooges. It's time to put this issue to bed. However, the base of the Republican party is so radically right wing, that Republican elected officials have no choice but to not outrage the wingnut following of these three losers.
Here is an example with Chris Matthews educating California congressman John Campbell:
For those birthers who are geographically challenged, here is a lesson for you:
Mike Stark of Firedoglake and Huffington Post thinks he has stumbled onto the reason George W. Bush was elected to the presidency twice: The GOP's base, as exemplified by this ubiquitous "birther" nonsense, must be Insane. In the video below, he puts the birther fictions before a series of Republican congressmen on the hill, and their reactions are priceless.
State law bars release of a certified birth certificate to anyone who does not have a tangible interest.
