From THE HUFFINGTON POST:
In a column Tuesday, actor and conservative political figure Chuck Norris argued that President Obama should release his birth certificate. Norris said that he finds it “a bit of a groundless stretch” to believe the president is not from Hawaii. Yet, he tells Obama, “Refusing to post your original birth certificate is an unwise political and leadership decision that is enabling the “birther” controversy.” And he adds that the president’s alleged reluctance suggests that he does have something to hide — even if he was born in the U.S.
Here’s Chucky in his own words:
I agree with CNN’s Lou Dobbs, who was chastised by his own media outlet for demanding the release of your original birth certificate. Why was that such a bad request? […]
Mr. President, as more and more people realize that you are refusing to release your original birth certificate, further questions will fuel the fires of debate or at least hinder the embers from ever being snuffed out. Questions such as, “Does it really contain the Hawaiian physician’s name?” “Does it disclose something other than his birthplace that he wishes others not to see?”
Orly Taitz, the birther lawyer who released the document that was supposedly a copy of President Obama’s Kenyan birth certificate, has now taken to her blog with an angry screed in response to the evidence that her find is in fact a poorly done forgery.
Referring to the discovery that the purportedly Kenyan document was almost certainly based on a copy of a birth certificate issued for an Australian man, David Jeffrey Bomford, Taitz writes, “Recently Obama’s thugs in main stream (sic) media came up with this Bomford report in order to stop my efforts in exposing and prosecuting Obama. Though typically I don’t have time to waste on each and every dumb obot, since it got to National TV and my children’s friends called my children, I’ll spend a few minutes to debunk the obots.” She continues:
1. Kenya became an independant (sic) country in 1963, not 1964. The seal of Kenya was correct …
5. Bomford report was created to try to discredit my efforts
6.lastly, I am not supposed to waste my time and money on this issue, Obama us the one who is supposed to provide evidence of legitimacy
7. Kenyan BC provides more info than the piece of garbage Obama posted on the net, which doesn’t have the name of the hospital, name of the doctor or signatures.
8. Chioumi Fukino (sic) and Obama and all their Nazi Brown Shirts in the main stream media need to give it a rest and provide an original hospital BC and the corresponding big thick hospital Birthing file from the Kapiolani hospital. If they don’t have such a file, all of them need to resign immediately or they will be prosecuted for massive fraud and treason to this Nation. (in case you didn’t know, treason carries punishment of life in prison or death penalty).
The real issue, which Taitz avoids, is that the document she released is marked as having come from the Republic of Kenya in February of 1964, when the country was actually known as the Dominion of Kenya — it wasn’t a republic until 10 months later.
[The] Bomfort document on which the forgery was based “was created to try to discredit my efforts” is pretty ridiculous — Archive.org shows it linked to on the site from which it was taken as far back as 2007.
Finally, the “Chioumi Fukino” Taitz refers to is in fact Dr. Chiyome Fukino, the director of the Hawaii Department of Health, who has repeatedly verified that the state has Obama’s birth certificate on file and that he was in fact born there.
From THE HUFFINGTON POST:
[Taitz] also cites Hillary Clinton’s trip to Kenya as proof that the administration takes the birth certificate issue seriously.
Meanwhile, other birthers are worried Taitz is discrediting their movement. “I’ve advised her in writing, along with several other attorneys, that if she has an original document that seems to bolster her case, it needs to be examined by a professional document examiner,” a lawyer who assisted her in the past told the Washington Independent.
Taitz had a meltdown on MSNBC Monday night, blaming media “brownshirts” for the whole mess.
