Chuck Norris? O RLY?


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?”

From Salon:

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 — 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.


[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.

  1. Chuckie must not have gotten enough attention with his rants about Texas so he thought he would jump on this band wagon.. didn’t he read that Dobb’s ratings had gone down, not up…lol

    Just another washed up celebrity like Pat Boone looking for his 15 minutes of fame.. I think he will get 14 minutes back.

    • i’m thinkin’ maybe someone kicked him the head a little too hard. good thing he’s such an incredible actor, so he has that to fall back on if his dream of being a political pundit doesn’t work out! 😆

  2. This may be the end of the “Chuck Norris facts.”

    Even Chuck Norris can’t make birther arguments sound credible.

  3. I’ve read rants like Orly’s before. They usually earned their authors kook awards.

  4. Good Gawd! Make it/him stop!!!

  5. I think during his last facelift they pulled too tight and cracked his skull and his brain is now corroding from oxidation. Or something.

    • like he was some kind of genius before the last facelift? i think maybe he OD’ed on the cialis after marrying someone almost 30 years his junior.

  6. Nine years from now they’ll still be crying fowl and trying to take him to court.

    • by then, hopefully, orly will be filling molars and leaving the lawyering biz behind, and chuck will have come out of the closet and married mike huckabee.

  7. jeb

    I tried to make a comment – I guess right after you posted this story – about Chucky’s need for any pub he can get and Orly’s screeching ride on the crazy train. When I hit submit I got the weirdest message from WordPress that said “You are making comments to fast, slow down.”

    Guess it was a case of premature commentation. Don’t tell me it happens to everyone and I swear it never happened to me before!

  8. Even as flakey as these two are, the real assholes are the ones giving them airtime. I hope Obama starts enforcing the government’s guidelines over OUR airwaves before insane shitwads like Limpbot and Beck, et al, totally destroy the public dialogue.

    • terry, i’m not sure if i agree or disagree. of course, i don’t believe they deserved any airtime when they started this nonsense, but they got it nonetheless. therefore, i think it’s important to make fools of them on the air at every opportunity to counteract the legitimacy they’re given by faux and the radio idiots.

      • Oh yeah. Unceasing exposure. I’m totally down with that. But treasonous bastards must be punished, not allowed to continue spouting treason against our “greet” (thankyew Sarah P) country.

        • i hate to say it or even think it, but i don’t think it’s going to stop until there’s a lot of blood shed. i fear that’s what’s going to happen at one town hall meeting or another. if it does happen, the media will talk about nothing else for a week or so, and then things will go right back to where they are now. it’ll be just like when dr. tiller was assassinated.

          • I think that you’re right.

            Wandering a bit … Glenn Beck, for instance, is more or less advocating the taking up of arms. His position last I heard was “It’s not time YET.”


            At what time do we take up arms against a democratically-elected President just because we don’t like his policies? This is insane, but there is a strong drive on the Right toward just that. (Which is why DHS warned about a rise of right-wing extremism.)

            Rational debate is being lost in favor of chaos, grandstanding, and shouting people down. To be honest, I don’t think that even Reagan would be proud of what the GOP has become. He verbally eviscerated people, but he did it with wit and clever turns of phrase, not volume.

            • wickle,
              i don’t know how anyone can be proud of what’s going on. there are traveling hordes of verbal thugs (and hopefully, they remain only verbal) and only winks and nods from the rethug leadership. on top of that, you have rushbo, glenn blechhh, and others on faux news encouraging violence.

  9. I know this will make me sound racist, but I truly despise Orange skinned people, and wish they’d return to the planet/country/wherever from whence they came.

  10. hello fairlane,
    welcome to the raisin! 😀

    you didn’t offend me in the least, but i suspect that john boohoo spray-on-tan boehner will never speak to you again! 😉

  11. eh, c’est la vie.

    at least, i still have my dignity.

  12. jke101

    I have a theory that Orly Taitz is John Boehner in drag. They are never seen together and they have the same smoker’s complection–suntanned and wrinkled like raisin.

    John probably got speech lessons from the Gabor sisters to perfect this illusion.

    • hello jke101,
      welcome to the raisin! 😀

      i don’t dismiss any theories. in fact, i have a new one. maybe orly is really zsa zsa’s hubby in drag. you know, the geezer who said that anna nicole smith’s baby was his. he’s already got the accent, and he has access to zsa zsa’s wigs. he’ll do anything for attention.
