What Fresh Hell Is This?

The Crazie Reaches The GOP Senate (Kind of)

It's made its way to Senator Richard Shelby from (Sweet Home) Alabama.

From Ben Smith at Politico.com we find this from the Cullman Times:
Another local resident asked Shelby if there was any truth to a rumor that appeared during the presidential campaign concerning Obama’s U.S. citizenship, or lack thereof.

“Well his father was Kenyan and they said he was born in Hawaii, but I haven’t seen any birth certificate,” Shelby said. “You have to be born in America to be president.” [emphasis added]
Heroically, the Cullman Times follows that immediately with this:
According to the Associated Press, state officials in Hawaii checked health department records during the campaign and determined there was no doubt Obama was born in Hawaii.

The nonpartisan Web site Factcheck.org examined the original document and said it does have a raised seal and the usual evidence of a genuine document. In addition, Factcheck.org reproduced an announcement of Obama's birth, including his parents' address in Honolulu, that was published in the Honolulu Advertiser on Aug. 13, 1961.
Back to Ben Smith:
I emailed Shelby's spokesman, Jonathan Graffeo, to ask if Shelby believes there's substance to this rumor, for which no supporting evidence has ever emerge, and which has been debunked repeatedly and in detail.

UPDATE: Graffeo calls to say that the Cullman Times report is a "distortion" and that Shelby mentioned that he hadn't seen the birth certificate only as a "throwaway line" while listing the qualifications for office and explaining that the issue had been examined at length and put to rest.

"He doesn't have any doubt" about Obama's citizenship and eligibility, Graffeo said.

As John Adams once said:
Facts are stubborn things; and whatever may be our wishes, our inclinations, or the dictates of our passion, they cannot alter the state of facts and evidence.
Please someone tell Alan Keyes!

FactCheck's Birth Certificate has no signature and no notary seal.

This Barack Obama issue is deeper than eligibility; forgery and conspiracy evidence to deceive the voters for the purpose of gaining control of the government by deceit will likely be the charges that ultimately bring him down.

I sent a letter to the US Attorney and others, drafted like a court proceeding in that all the evidence for one charge is grouped together so a determination can be made on that, then I went to another. That is on my website at:

At http://obama-birth-cert-forged-sss-impeach.blogspot.com
there is one post of my full letter with laws and sources separated in it, and 3 separate posts have the sources within the evidence and the laws as they pertain to the evidence,
one of the posts has Only Charges and Removal Plea,
one has Only SSS, RIMS History, and USPS date stamp Forgery Evidences,
and one has Only COLB-birth certificate forgery evidences.
Changes in the official paper work made it obvious Barack Obama created the papers in 2008 and made it look like 1980 etc.

Feel free to copy it and send it or refer to it. It gives the people enough information to determine if he is guilty of forgery of his COLB (Birth Certificate) and his SSS Registration. That makes it not so much a question of is he eligible, but did he commit a crime to hide and forge his documents? In addition, after all the hard work of lawsuits by other people, the fact that he spent over $800,00 to hide his identity witnesses against him that he certainly thinks he has something to hide and would not be in office if the truth were out.. This should lead to a swift removal if the people multiply it to world leaders and our leaders and media. Flood the land with truth as they flooded it with lies.

With all due respect, you're wrong.

I blogged on this last August.

FactCheck.org has photos of the birth certificate, the signatre, the seal, and everything else.

You are wrong, Marie.

Even Senator Richard Selby says you're wrong.
