We all birthers now? According Obama we are…
Last week Obama gave an interview in which he made it clear that he thinks the tea party movement are made up so-called “birthers”. The birthers believe that President Obama is ineligible to be President as he was not born in the US. They are called “birthers” because they repeatedly call for his birth certificate to be released. “President Barack Obama says he believes the | Read More »
Maybe We Need ‘Conspiracy Theorists’
The Washington Post’s Michael Gerson recently published a column on Political Reality, citing the efforts of conservatives to control the radical fringe of its own movement: http://tinyurl.com/y9x63ke If ‘Birthers’ are considered a radical fringe and Glenn Beck ranting against “the omnipresent threat of Saul Alinsky” is considered over the top, who is going to stand up to what is going on in Washington? I declare | Read More »
J.D. Hayworth and the Birther Issue: A Non-Story

Hayworth about the birther issue and my post from last night.He said definitely that Barack Obama is the President of the United States and meets all the legal and constitutional requirements to be President.

I hope this doesn’t upset the moderators, but
while reading the recent closed post on Creationism and truthers it occurred to me that the very existence of truthers is evidence against both Darwinism and Creationism. How could the stupidity gene possessed by truthers have survived? But how could creatures created in the image of God be so stupid? Birthers, being merely misguided, don’t contradict either. My head is spinning, but if you take | Read More »
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

“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 »

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 »

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.

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 »
