Just when you think the Barack Obama birth certificate conspiracy nuts have put away their tin foil hats, Fox News brings the non-issue back to the forefront with an above-the-fold mention and graphic on their FoxNation web site.

This issue has been repeatedly debunked and dismissed. But for those of you “truthers” who still don’t get it, this probably won’t convince you… FactCheck.org, Politifact.com and FightTheSmears.com all provide evidence fo the Certification of Live birth, which has been validated by the State of Hawaii and is as good as the “long form birth certificate.”

  1. Wake up says:

    Wake up! Who are you to say that the certificate that they posted (on the Internet no less) is valid and is the same as a long form birth certificate?

    We are losing out country and people like you are helping the effort.

      I live in Hawaii and have a freind who grew up in the same neighborhood as Obama. He went to the same school and came to his aid when Obama and his team were being attacked by a basket ball team that lost to them. I think the most compelling argument for Obama being a citizen was brought up by a congressman who said “If Obama wasn’t an American citizen don’t you think that Hillary would have found that out during the primaries?” It’s true however that we are losing the country. To right wing nut jobs who don’t operate on logic and bravery but react to every rumor with cowardice and fear. They cling for security to the same people who have used fear to brainwash and subjegate them for their own profit.

        People show less and less common sense and courtesy. President Obama is so obviously an intelligent, honest, kind, and God-fearing man, and he is the President of our country. For people who know nothing of the truth about his life to make up lies and voice petty suspicions is unwise, rude, dishonest, unkind and against God (since God stands for truth, love, forgiveness and wisdom).

  2. FoxNewsBoycott says:

    Who are you to say that the three sources that posted the certification online and the Hawaii govt. officials that verified it are wrong? The State of Hawaii says it’s the same as the so-called “long form birth certificate.” No amount of proof will satisfy your need to be a “truther.”

    The only thing we may be losing our country to is the number of idiots who believe every little conspiracy theory that comes their way because it makes them feel better about masking their hate and bigotry.

  3. Where is the attending Dr’s signature?

  4. FoxNewsBoycott says:

    Certifications of Live Birth in Hawaii do not have the Dr’s name, nor do they require a Dr’s signature. The certification does; however, have Hawaii state registrar Alvin T. Onaka’s signature on the back. That makes it valid and authentic.

  5. No Free Lunch says:

    Below are two official emails that dispute the public version of Obama’s Birth and his mother’s marriage to BHO Sr.

    Commentary on University Emails:

    For the BHO II Hawaiian Aug 4 1961 COLB to be accurate the following improbable events needed to occur:

    1 month after starting classes, Stanley Ann Dunham, Barack’s mom, at age 17, got pregnant by the only black African man on the entire chain of Hawaiian islands.
    2 months after getting pregnant, she drops out of college.
    3 months after getting pregnant, she marries BHO Sr.
    10 months after her first day at the U of HI, she delivers BHO II and immediately leaves her parents, her new husband, and her home, to fly alone with a newborn 2800 miles to Seattle to start college at the U of W.
    Stanley Ann Dunham does not return to Hawaii until AFTER BHO Sr left the islands for Harvard.

    This is an implausible series of events made even more nefarious because Obama II in his 2 bio books never mentions his mom left Hawaii when she was married to BHO Sr, nor does he mention she was in Washington State during this time.

  6. FoxNewsBoycott says:

    What is so implausible? The time line checks out. Is it just because he doesn’t mention a period of time in his book, when he was 1-2yrs old, that is inconsequential? What does that prove? Nothing.


    Everything is answered at the two links above – his father was the first exchange student from Africa at University of Hawaii at Manoa & shared a class with his mother. His father lied about being divorced from a wife in Kenya, so they separated, and his mother went to Washington (enrolled by January, 1962). His father started at Havard in Fall, 1962. She returned to University of Hawaii at Manoa in Spring, 1963. That makes Barack Obama around 2yrs old. He was just over 2 when his parents divorced in January, 1964.

    That’s not much of a conspiracy theory…
