Arizona Legislature Approves Birther Bill!

Rate this post

In his interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos last night, Obama dismissed “birthers” Obama truth-seekers as conspiracy nutcases. This is Stephanopoulos’ account from his blog, “George’s Bottom Line“:

I thought the president would take a pass when I asked him about Donald Trump’s rise to the top of the Republican field in my exclusive interview today.
Far from it.
He grabbed at the chance with a big smile – saying he thinks the whole issue will be a problem for Republicans.
“I think that over the last two and a half years there’s been an effort to go at me in a way that is politically expedient in the short-term for Republicans. But [it] creates, I think a problem for them when they want to actually run in a general election where most people feel pretty confident the President was born where he says he was, in Hawaii. He– he doesn’t have horns…we’re not really worrying about conspiracy theories or– or birth certificates,” President Obama told me.

Go ahead and laugh, Obama. The Arizona state legislature just gave final approval to its bill requiring all 2012 presidential candidates to prove their U.S. citizenship before their names can appear on the state’s ballot. Now it is up to Governor Jan Brewer to sign the bill into law.
You go, Arizona!

Arizona Legislature OKs Presidential ‘Birther’ Bill
Apr 15, 2011
PHOENIX – The Arizona Legislature gave final approval late Thursday night to a proposal that would require President Barack Obama and other presidential candidates to prove they are U.S. citizens before their names can appear on the state’s ballot.
Arizona would become the first state to require such proof if Gov. Jan Brewer signs the measure into law.
Republican Rep. Carl Seel of Phoenix, the author of the bill, said the bill wasn’t about opposition to Obama. “This bill is about the integrity of our elections,” Seel said.
Thirteen other states have considered similar proposals this year. The proposals were defeated in Arkansas, Connecticut, Maine and Montana.
The bill won final approval from the state House in a 40-16 vote.
So-called “birthers” contend since the last presidential election that Obama is ineligible to hold the nation’s highest elected office because, they argue, he was actually born in Kenya, his father’s homeland. The Constitution said a person must be a “natural-born citizen” to be eligible for the presidency.
Hawaii officials have repeatedly confirmed Obama’s citizenship, and his Hawaiian birth certificates have been made public. Even though the courts have rebuffed lawsuits challenging Obama’s eligibility, the issue hasn’t gone away.
“It’s a fringe issue in my view, and it’s going to cause people to look again at Arizona and say what’s all this craziness going on there,” said Democratic Rep. Daniel Patterson of Tucson, an opponent of the bill.
The Arizona proposal would require political parties and presidential candidates to hand in affidavits stating a candidate’s citizenship and age and to provide the candidate’s birth certificate and a sworn statement saying where the candidate has lived for 14 years. If candidates don’t have a copy of their birth certificates, they could meet the requirement by providing baptismal or circumcision certificates, hospital birth records and other documents. If it can’t be determined whether candidates who provided documents in place of their birth certificates are eligible to appear on the ballot, the secretary of state would be able to set up a committee to help determine whether the requirements have been met.
The names of candidates can be kept off the ballot if the secretary of state doesn’t believe the candidates met the citizenship requirement.

  1. Thankyou Arizona!!

  2. With this bill, Arizona is saying they don’t respect Hawaii’s validation of a birth certificate. This will only pit state against state in terms of validating any kind of documentation if this bill passes and other states pass similar bills. What is Arizona’s current current law regarding releasing this kind of information? Does Arizona respect other kinds of documentation from Hawaii? I know that the state I live in has similar restrictions on birth certificates. Because of respect for privacy, no one off the street can waltz in and view anybody’s birth certificate at the County Clerk’s office. And if I wanted a copy of my birth certificate, I’d get the same kind of document that Obama received. So, if I decide to run for president, am I going to run up against the same kind of BS? Probably not since I’m white. A lot of the time there is no “original” – the birth information is simple written as a line-item in a big book with all of the other births in a county. So, when a certificate is requested, the information in the book is transcribed to a document which is then certified. The only rational conclusion I can come to is that Republicans are just stupid.

    • Hello, Fred Garvin in Michigan (IP:
      The President of the United States isn’t just Joe Blow, an ordinary citizen. Whatever “privacy” rights he has are forfeited when he ran for POTUS because the Constitution specifies that only a Natural Born Citizen of the United States is eligible to be POTUS. John McCain produced his original longform birth certificate in 2008 when the media expressed doubts. Why won’t Obama? I must produce my original birth certificate when I apply for a passport. Why won’t Obama? Instead he is so “special” he thinks an online image of his Certificate of Live Birth (COLB) — a SECONDARY document generated from his original longform birth certificate — and an announcement his grandparents put in a local newspaper should suffice. Try doing that when you apply for a passport or a driver’s license.
      And please don’t insult my intelligence and current news knowledge by saying that the State of Hawaii now takes the COLB to be a person’s birth certificate. Hawaii started doing that only after Obama’s COLB became an issue. Even if we go by Hawaii’s new policy, there are still at least two problems with Obama’s COLB:
      1. The American people have only seen an image of the COLB that was posted online in 2008 on leftwing websites, at least one of which is funded by Obama’s sugar daddy, George Soros.
      2. There are FOUR different online versions of the COLB. Why is that?
      You Obamabots are so predictable. Everytime this blog posts anything on Obama’s birth certificate/eligibility, you immediately crawl out like maggots to post your robotic comments. Barely minutes after I published this post, two banned commenters immediately left the same comment — that Hawaii accepts the COLB as the official birth certificate, blah, blah, blah. Sadly, their comments went immediately into our Spam bin, as with any and all future bovine excrement from you. Pssh, you can tell us: How much does Obama’s “information czar” Cass Sunstein pay you to trawl/troll the Internet on the lookout for blogs about his ineligibility?
      Lastly, can’t you people on the Left come up with malicious accusations other than “racist” and “stupid”, against those who refuse to be sheep? Yawn. Can’t you try to be a tad more innovative and creative? You have committed the supreme offense of being B-O-R-I-N-G.
      Fred Garvin is boring

      • Thanks, sage, for pointing out to little Freddie that we’re not Republicans, although something tells me that won’t stop him from calling us stupid. LOL

  3. Dear Mr. Garvin,
    Can you explain to me why the Hawaii Dept of Health has refused to comply with their own FOIA ? Can you explain Tim Adam’s statements that he was unable to locate birth records for Mr. Soetero in either one of the Hawaiian hospitals? Can you explain Governor Abercombie’s quick silence after looking for the birth certificate and not finding one?
    Can you tell me why the US Passport division “lost” Stanley Dunham’s passport records for 1961 though they claim they keep all records? Her passprt application for a renewal in the mid sixties would indicate she had a prior one. That renewal form also has Barack Obama crossed out with the name Soebarkah written instead. Can you explain that for me? Surely it indicates that Barack was adopted by Lolo Soetero and his name was changed to an Indonesian one, so he was eligible for an Indonesian passport. His first US passport was granted to him when he became an Illinois Senator thru those political channels.
    Please explain to me why the Kenyan Parliament declared Mr. Obama Kenyan born.
    As a natural born citizen I have too many unaswered questions and too many false statements to take Mr. Soetero at his word. I am thrilled with the new Arizona law and hope that this passage will renew the courage of other state legislators.

  4. Dear Eowyn,
    It is my pleasure to debunk any support still clinging to Mr. soetero. Anyone who doesn’t have doubts about his eligibility had too many cups of Koolaid from the Soros cup of fraud. Let us continue the investigations of Mr. Soetero’s social security numbers and the different forms used by the DNC to declare the fraud eligible for the ballot. If he was eligible Nancy Pelosi and the Hawaiian DNC would not have had to change the forms and the wording. Col Lakin’s judge refused Discovery in his trial stating it would embarass Mr. soetero. What kind of justice is that? With this new Arizona law and Mr. Trump’s publicity the uninformed public are getting their eyes opened. Thank you for your efforts and research.

  5. Hoping that many many other states follow suit!

  6. Eowyn,I am sending this to Jan Brewer,as there seems to be a problem with her signing this bill into law. According to Orly Taitz,we all need to rally our support,she says be courteous and support this bill being signed. Evidently,there is some funny business going on with Kirk Adams-just read on her site.

  7. Sent this,and asked her to please sign it into law. America is depending on her.
