Republicans. They are past the stage of no return.
Since President Obama took office, Republicans have been on a rampage trying to prove the impossible, that President Obama was born somewhere else, any where else than right here in the good ole US of A!. They even created a name for themselves – The Birthers! And although the President has provided both his short form and long form United States birth certificate – an apparent requirement now that this particular president is in office – these Republicans are still convinced that the birth of the President in the state of Hawaii did not happen.
So on goes the clown car.
One of the brains in the party has taken it upon himself to start a petition to deport the president, my guess is they want to deport him back to the land of his birth – Hawaii!
The 20 page petition was started by Larry Klayman, founder of the conservative group Judicial Watch, the same man who now heads Freedom Watch. Klayman submitted his deportation petition to the Department of Homeland Security, Immigration and Customs Enforcement because, they obviously have nothing better to do with their time than to cater to the willfully ignorant.
Without any proof whatsoever, the Republican brain Klayman argues in his petition that the Birth Certificate the president produced from Hawaii was fake. He also contends that the President’s Social Security number is also fake. Again, no proof necessary, just a petition based on nothing but his words, his hate and his emotional state of mind, (and you thought Republicans had no emotions).
In his petition, Klayman wrote:
Barack Hussein Obama has relied upon a birth certificate from the State of Hawaii which is clearly a forgery — that is, not a valid birth certificate — and indeed also a rather sloppy forgery with easily-detected, unmistakable errors and defects.
It is a fair inference that Barack Hussein Obama would not have relied throughout his life upon a forged birth certificate if a genuine birth certificate showing a live birth in U.S. territory existed. No one would present a birth certificate that document analysis exposes to be a forgery if they could just as easily present their actual, genuine birth certificate. As a result, claims that an undisclosed birth certificate exists and a more recent document must face serious credibility questions as to why a forgery was being used — a crime and document fraud under the Immigration and Naturalization Act (INA) — unnecessarily…
The irony is, these Birther folks calling for the President’s deportation, are the same ones who will happily cast their vote for Ted Cruz. Cruz, a potential Republican presidential candidate for the 2016 election, was actually born in Calgary Canada. That is another country, and is listed on his birth certificate as his place of birth. But Republicans consider Cruz okay because, he’s a Republican and although he is of minority descent, he looks the part. His color is passable.
Yep! These Republicans have passed the point of no return indeed!
Real-estate billionaire Donald Trump has withdrawn his $5 million lawsuit against Bill Maher, the liberal comedian host of HBO’s “Real Time” — for now anyway.
“The lawsuit was temporarily withdrawn to be amended and refiled at a later date,” Michael Cohen, a lawyer for Trump, told TMZ.
The suit centered on a $5 million bet between the two celebrities. In January, Maher said he’d pay that amount in cash to charities of Trump’s choice if the Donald released a birth certificate proving he’s not the “spawn of his mother having sex with an orangutan.” Maher was playing on Trump’s challenge of President Barack Obama’s birth certificate.
Trump indeed released his own certificate. But Maher refused to pay up, saying it was all a joke. Trump promised legal action and filed the lawsuit in Los Angeles in February.
Last month, Trump insisted he was ready for justice to run its course. “He made an offer, I accepted the offer,” Trump said then on ABC. “He didn’t say it was a joke [at the time]. We’re going to find out if it was a joke. The courts will tell.”
The suit was withdrawn last Friday.
NOTE: If you haven’t already heard Maher’s response to Donald Trump regarding this lawsuit, you must watch the video here.
The joke that is Donald Trump is taking it’s act to a whole new level. Trump is scheduled to be the ring leader of a Republican presidential
circus debate scheduled for December 27th. We’re torn between the idea of this being a new low for Donald Trump or an even newer low for the Republican presidential candidates who will attend, but it’s definitely an even greater low for our political system.
Luckily for Jon Huntsman, he will not be played for a
clown fool. He sent a rejection letter to the Donald and Newsmax, the conservative News magazine who organized the event.
Former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman is the first to send his regrets.
“We look forward to watching Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich suck up to Trump with a big bowl of popcorn,” Huntsman spokesman Tim Miller told Yahoo News.
The debate organizers sent out debate notices to the presidential campaigns today, but they have not yet heard back about who will show, Newsmax Social Media Director Brett Sandala confirmed.
“We’ve gotten a few positive responses but we’re not doing any release on that until next week,” Sandala said.
Trump will moderate the debate on his own, Sandala said, and will cover several topics.
I personally would not be watching this debate. But if Newsmax organizes a news conference where Trump’s investigators tell of their findings in Hawaii regarding President Obama’s Kenyan birth, I will definitely watch that!
Leave it up to Keith Olbermann to decipher the White House’s reasoning behind the release of the long form birth certificate. If true, it is a brilliant move on behalf of the President.
I know a lot of you will be thinking, why would you let the Republicans know the reasoning behind the President’s decision? I asked myself the very same question while Keith laid it all out on the table. But then I remembered – these are Republicans, you know, they wouldn’t know the truth if it… well, they wouldn’t know the truth!
A very emotional response to the unbelievable disrespect that the most powerful man in the world, the President Of The United States, suffered yesterday. Being subjected to the obvious racism of a small minority of so-called Americans, who simply cannot accept the fact that a black man won the presidential election and now, is the leader of the free world.
They think they’ve shamed the President, but in fact, these Birthers and racists, have shamed this nation… again!
The crazy woman who started the whole Birther movement, Orly Taitz, appeared on The Lawrence O’Donnell Show last night. She was given a chance to apologize for the lie she successfully began, convincing almost half of all Republicans into believing that President Obama was born in Kenya, but instead side-stepped the question, creating a showdown between her and O’donnell. And let me just say that my opinion of her as a crazy person is not mine alone, even O’ Donnell admitted to that fact after the interview abruptly ended, saying
“She’s crazy! I invited a crazy person on the show to see, if a crazy person faced with the thing that the crazy person was trying to get for 2 and a half years, could say something responsive, something new to the document that was released today. Something she’s never seen in her life. And she wants to play with all of her other kids toys, all of her other crazy documents.”
Well Lawrence, why would you expect anything else from a crazy person? She’s crazy for crying out loud!
You can’t make this stuff up. A new USA Today/Gallop poll finds that almost 40% of Americans have doubts as to whether Donald Trump is a natural born citizen.
The poll, which questioned 1,013 adults finds that “not everyone is convinced Trump was born in the USA either: 43% say he definitely was born here, and 20% say he probably was; 7% say he definitely or probably was born in another country. Nearly three in 10 say they don’t know enough to say.” That’s 37% who cannot say with conviction that they believe Donald Trump was born in America.
Seems The Donald has some s’plainin’ to do.
