My final thought on the birther issue
A lot of you have asked if I’ve gotten any more emails. Below the fold, a compilation of emails that have come in. But above the fold, my final word.Based on the facts, it is very clear that President Obama is our lawfully elected President and the Office of President of the United States of America requires that though we may disagree with him and | Read More »
The Big Birfer Speaks
This is about the funniest thing I’ve ever read.Ladies and gentlemen, this guy is some sort of pseudo-journalist mouthpiece for that idiot lawyer from California, Orly Taitz.These are the people we are relying on to document the eligibility of Barack Obama?!?!Charlton writes It appears that Eric Erickson, the Editor-in-Chief of Redstate.com, is an attorney who once practiced law in the same courthouse as the infamous | Read More »
Vigilance: I’m Banning Birfers, Truthers, and Groups Affiliated Therewith
“So we arrive at one of those moments where I am fully prepared to part ways with the individuals and groups willing to share the stage and treat as legitimate the [birfers and truthers]… ” We’ve always banned truthers at RedState. Increasingly, we have also banned a number of individuals who think Barack Obama is disqualified from being President because despite the Republican Governor of | Read More »
Constitutional words: Even if the birthers were right, what difference would it make?
The precise meaning of words and phrases in the Constitution is and has always been a matter of controversy. The recent decision on corporate free speech is a good example. If there is any unambiguous word in our Constitution it is the word “No”. “Congress shall make no law…abridging the freedom of speech…” It speaks for itself. It makes no distinction based on the source | Read More »
Why it’s time to take birthers seriously [closed]
[Okay, this silliness has gone on long enough. We don't subscribe to birtherism on the site. If that's an itch you really feel needs to be scratched you're in the wrong place. --streiff] Last week Mr. Obama publically referred to the controversy surrounding his eligibility for the Office of the Presidency – and Allahpundit, writing for hot air, said this about Mr. Obama’s decision to | Read More »
A Real Scandal

If you didn’t have a good reason to love Andrew Breitbart before…
From Big Government, a video of Andrew’s speech to the Nashville Tea Party gathering. His comments to the “MSM” should be our comments to politicians – ALL Democrats, and more than a few Republicans. 1. At 1:34 – “That, my friends, is not ‘media bias’, that is contempt for the American people.” 2. At 2:42 = “It’s not your business model that sucks, it’s you | Read More »
Judge Clay Land: Great American Hero
Clay Land is a Federal Judge in the Middle District of Georgia, Columbus Division.He is a Bush appointee and a solid guy. When I was a lawyer we has some interaction.Today, he threw out Connie Rhodes’s lawsuit. That lawsuit is the one filed claiming Rhodes cannot be deployed to Iraq because Barack Obama is “not constitutionally eligible to act as Commander in Chief of the | Read More »
On the GOP, Rick Moran, Birthers, and Conservative philosophy
I apoligize if I ruffle any feathers. I am new to RedState, this is my first post. I mean no offense to anyone who may think differently from myself, I just wish to enter the debate. I have read the site for almost a year now and followed it loyally every day but enough of my own apologies, here are my thoughts: Even as the | Read More »
Your Truther v. Birther Open Thread
If Barack Obama can hire a 9/11 Truther as his green jobs czar, maybe we all should give the birthers a bit more latitude.Consider this an open thread.
Baghdad Bob Gibbs says the birthers are right!!
I saw this on FNC today and the official White House press release confirms it. He needed to work in the obligatory “I need to mention the birthers even though it has nothing to do with this (so-called) answer” comment and let go with this. I can’t tell you why somebody believes, despite all preponderance of the evidence, that the President was born here and | Read More »
Politico Smears ‘ObamaCare’ Opponents
Promoted by Erick. What the heck is an “anti-reform” protestor. No, it is “anti-Obamacare” protestor. Politico, ever the objective source of political news and analysis, has provided a handy list of “5 Things to Watch During the Recess.” One in particular caught my attention because it was so egregiously loaded with bias: #4: Who Will Come to the Tea Parties?
We are birthers hear us roar in numbers too big to ignore.
“I am birther, hear me roar In numbers too big to ignore And I know too much to go back an’ pretend ’cause I’ve heard it all before And I’ve been down there on the floor No one’s ever gonna keep me down again CHORUS Oh yes I am wise But it’s wisdom born of pain Yes, I’ve paid the price But look how much | Read More »
On Birthers, Obama, Muslims, and More
I’ve said for a long time now that the fixation on Barack Obama’s birth certificate is a distraction. I think Barack Obama is a natural born American citizen because his mother was indisputably an American citizen. I think he meets the residency requirements. And I think that Justice Scalia himself would not throw the President out of office now that he has been sworn in. | Read More »
The Birther controversy is an unnecessary distraction
The controversy over President Obama’s birth status, quietly simmering since last fall, has over the last few weeks hit a kind of boiling point with CNN anchors, US Senators, and the White House Press Secretary all weighing in on the subject. Numerous lawsuits have been filed, and a soldier on his way to Afghanistan recently protested his deployment on the grounds that the President hasn’t | Read More »
