Regretfully I Still Am A Birther

Today, President Obama gave us his long form birth certificate, at least that is what he told us. He also said that his birth status was taking up too much time in light of the major issues the United States is facing. Well, I sure do wish that I felt that he was telling us the truth.

When it comes to his birth status I still have questions. For a couple of years there has been the copies of Eleanor Nordyke's twins birth certificate going around the net.  These documents show a birth date of August 5, 1961 and a acceptance date of August 11, 1961.The Department of Health record file numbers are 151-61-10637 and 10638. So you say, what does that mean?  Well, when we look at the newly released birth certificate you see a birth date of August 4, 1961 (one day before the twins), an acceptance date of August 8, 1961 of August 8, 1961 which is three days before the Nordyke twins, however the record file number is 151-61-10641 (three or four numbers after the twins record file number.)  Both the twins and Obama were "born" at the same hospital.

Now there are two answers to this puzzling question, either the Hawaii Department of Health system was incompetent at that time and recorded births out of order (which for government officials could be understandable) or the "new" document is not real.

There are two additional issues with the document as portrayed by the President as his "birth certificate."  The first is that his father's race is listed as "African."  In 1961 which was before the Civil Rights era, the proper description of someone whose ancestry was Africa, would have been Negro.  Why is it this way? Again, is it incompetency on the part of the Health Department or....

The second question that is that if you look at the President's newly released document, it appears to have been copied out of a book as you can tell the left margin is getting darker. If we accept this as the record, then the State of Hawaii would have had to go back and make new copies of the old birth certificates. If you look at the Nordyke certificates, they are the black background with white writing which is what all older birth certificates (including my own) look like.

Another question that arises in my mind is why is he named Barack Hussein Obama II and not Barack Hussein Obama Jr.?  Normally, parents name their child Junior if all the other names are the same.  Just a question, that tickles the innards of my less than fertile mind.

So I guess I am still one of those demented birthers who will never accept his "story."  I go back to my comments earlier this month advising the President to release ALL of his records including his college records.  He won't and I fear he will take the attitude that he doesn't need to as he has released his birth certificate. Until the time  he produces all his records, there will always be those who like me,  who keep wondering "if he has nothing to hide, why does he just not come clean."  The only answer I can think of, he is dirty!

What do you think?

Black Conservatives Starting To Make Their Mark

With the election of Alan West of Florida to the Congress of the United States, we are starting to see Black Conservatives come to the fore. Yes, Clarence Thomas is on the Supreme Court but conservatives and the Black population are not one in the same, hardly.  It is our dream to see many more populating the elected offices in the United States. As we see and hear from them, it is our plan to promote them here.

Additionally, there are other Blacks coming to the fore. One such example is Mychal Massie .  In his posting on April 19, he asks the same question many of us are--When Will Obama Crack?  I think it is worth reading and I have posted it below.   Tell me what you think.  

Subject: When will Obama crack in public?

Posted: April 19, 2011

by Mychal Massie

At a time when many Americans can barely afford Burger King and a movie, Obama boasts of spending a billion dollars on his re-election campaign. Questioned at a recent appearance about the spiraling fuel costs, Obama said, "Get used to it" – and with an insouciant grin and chortle, he told another person at the event, who complained about the effect high fuel prices were having on his family, to "get a more fuel-efficient car."

The Obamas behave as if they were sharecroppers living in a trailer and hit the Powerball, but instead of getting new tires for their trailer and a new pickup truck, they moved to Washington . And instead of making possum pie, with goats and chickens in the front yard, they're spending and living large at taxpayer expense – opulent vacations, gala balls, resplendent dinners and exclusive command performances at the White House, grand date nights, golf, basketball, more golf, exclusive resorts and still more golf.

Expensive, ill-fitting and ill-chosen wigs and fashions hardly befit the first lady of the United States . The Obamas have behaved in every way but presidential – which is why it's so offensive when we hear Obama say, in order "to restore fiscal responsibility, we all need to share in the sacrifice – but we don't have to sacrifice the America we believe in."

The American people have been sacrificing; it is he and his family who are behaving as if they've never had two nickels to rub together – and now, having hit the mother lode, they're going to spend away their feelings of inadequacy at the taxpayers' expense.

Obama continues to exhibit behavior that, at best, can be described as mobocratic and, at worst, reveals a deeply damaged individual. In a February 2010 column, I asked, "Is Obama unraveling?" I wrote that it was beginning to appear the growing mistrust of him and contempt for his policies was beginning to have a destabilizing effect on him.

At that time, I wrote that not having things go one's way can be a bitter pill, but reasonable people don't behave as he was behaving. He had insulted Republicans at their luncheon, where he had been an invited guest. I had speculated that was, in part, what had led him to falsely accuse Supreme Court justices before Congress, the nation and the world, during the 2010 State of the Union address.

It appeared, at that time, as if he were "fraying around the emotional edges." That behavior has not abated – it has become more pronounced. While addressing the nation, after being forced to explain the validity of his unilateral aggression with Libya , America witnessed a petulant individual scowling and scolding the public for daring to insist he explain his actions.

But during an afternoon speech to address the budget/debt, he took his scornful, unstable despotic behavior to depths that should give the nation cause for concern. Displaying a dark psychopathy more representative of an episode of "The Tudors" television series, he invited Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., to sit in the front row during his speech and then proceeded to berate both Ryan and Ryan's budget-cutting plan. Even liberal Democrats were put off by the act. MSNBC's Joe Scarborough questioned the sanity of Obama's actions.

Today, criticism is coming from all sides. A senior Democrat lawmaker said, "I have been very disappointed in [Obama], to the point where I'm embarrassed that I endorsed him. It's so bad that some of us are thinking, is there some way we can replace him? How do you get rid of this guy?" ("Democrats' Disgust with Obama," The Daily Beast, April 15, 2011)

Steve McCann wrote: Obama's speech "was chock full of lies, deceit and crass fear-mongering. It must be said that [he] is the most dishonest, deceitful and mendacious person in a position of power I have ever witnessed" ("The Mendacity of Barack Obama,", April 15, 2011).

McCann continued: "[His] performance was the culmination of four years of outright lies and narcissism that have been largely ignored by the media, including some in the conservative press and political class who are loath to call [him] what he is in the bluntest of terms: a liar and a fraud. That he relies on his skin color to intimidate, either outright or by insinuation [against] those who oppose his radical agenda only add to his audacity. It is apparent that he has gotten away with his character flaws his entire life, aided and abetted by sycophants around him. …"

With these being among the kinder rebukes being directed at Obama, and with people becoming less intimidated by his willingness to use race as a bludgeon, with falling poll numbers in every meaningful category and an increasingly aggressive tea-party opposition – how much longer before he cracks completely?

The coming months of political life are not going to be pleasant for Obama. Possessed by a self-perceived palatine mindset, that in his mind places him above criticism, how long before he cracks in public? Can America risk a man with a documented track record of lying and misrepresenting truth as a basic way of life, who is becoming increasingly more contumelious?

Will Dearborn Pay For Its Miscarriage Of Justice

Reverend Terry Jones is changing his tactic from talking about Sharia Law in Dearborn to the First Amendment.  Is this smart or is he an opportunist? On both questions the answer is yes.  He is smart enough to realize that Dearborn grossly over reacted to his visit and he is lucky that the City was so stupid and ham handed in handling him.

In today's Detroit News (reproduced below), reporter Oralandar Brand-Williams, talks about the change in tactic by the Florida cleric.  I do not know this reporter, however, his last paragraph is  chilling. He writes:

"Redford resident Richard Fournier, who attended the first day of Jones' and Sapp's trial, says he doesn't believe their constitutional rights were violated because their protest could have created a disturbance and possibly a riot."

What? Their constitutional rights were not violated because their protest might caused a riot or disturbance?  I don't know where this reporter (and his source) gets his information but in this country we do not charge people with a crime for something that might happen. By ending the story in this way, the reporter (and his editor) are telling us their point of view. So much for balanced journalism!

The really scary part of the story is that Mr. Fournier could sit in a trial and know so little about American government to make such an ill-informed statement. Is Mr. Fournier an example of the education level of our public or is he an outlier? Unfortunately, I think that he is our star pupil and not one on the outside looking in.

What is your opinion?
Here is the Detroit News article:

.Jones: Return to Dearborn is 'battle to protect the First Amendment'

Oralandar Brand-Williams / The Detroit News

Detroit— Controversial Florida pastor Terry Jones told The Detroit News on Saturday that he plans to file a lawsuit against the Wayne County Prosecutor's office and other government entities in connection with his arrest Friday and the case the prosecutor filed against him in connection with his planned protest outside the Islamic Center of America.

"We were arrested for something we had not done," said Jones today from Detroit Metro Airport as he prepared to go back home to Gainesville, Florida.

"I was totally shocked. I could not believe it," Jones said of his arrest. "Even the police who put the handcuffs on us were shocked."

Jones said he is working with the Ann Arbor-based Thomas More Law Center to file the lawsuit for violation of his Free Speech rights. The Thomas More Law Center is nationally known conservative Christian law center noted for its religion-based First Amendment case. The law firm filed a suit against the City of Dearborn last year. That case involved alleged violation of the constitutional rights of Christian missionaries jailed by police at the city's International Arab Festival. The missionaries sought to pass out literature but police said they could only do so in a certain area of the massive event.

Constitution expert Robert Sedler said he is glad to see Jones is challenging the "bizarre" ruling by Dearborn District Court Judge Mark Somers.

"The Supreme Court says you cannot deny a permit because of the message," said Sedler, a Wayne State University Law School professor. "The U.S. Constitutional supersedes everything, which is why this is so bizarre."

Jones is coming back to Dearborn on Friday.

He said he will hold the demonstration at 5 p.m. Friday outside Dearborn City Hall. He says he wants to stay within the confines of the law. Jones said the issue has now shifted from "radical Islam" to a battle to protect the First Amendment.

"We're getting support from all around America," said Jones.

Jones and his associate pastor, Wayne Sapp, were briefly jailed Friday for refusing to post a $1 bond requested by Judge Somers after a six-member jury found that Jones and Sapp would likely create a "breach of the peace" if they were to go along with their demonstration outside the mosque on Good Friday.

Jones and Wyatt bonded themselves out of jail shortly after their arrests. Jones said Friday that he and Sapp "made it very, very clear that we posted this under the greatest protest,"

Jones said the "whole proceedings, were a definite violation of our Constitutional rights."

Legal observers said the judge's actions were unusual but Somers had followed the letter of the law."

The Wayne County Prosecutor's office had no comment on Jones plans to sue.

Redford resident Richard Fournier, who attended the first day of Jones' and Sapp's trial, says he doesn't believe their constitutional rights were violated because their protest could have created a disturbance and possibly a riot.
