GOP Rep. backs birther investigation in
hopes of invalidating laws under Obama

The Hill [Washington, DC], by Justin Sink

Posted By:KarenJ1, 8/6/2013 10:44:35 AM

Freshman Rep. Ted Yoho (R-Fla.) said during a town hall meeting that while questions about President Obama´s birth certificate were not the best use of time, he was nevertheless supporting further investigation into the president´s birthplace because if he were removed from office, “we can get rid of everything he’s done.” Yoho said he would support legislation championed by Rep. Steve Stockman (R-Texas) to investigate the president´s birthplace because "if it is true" that the president was not, in fact, born in Hawaii, "it’s illegal, he shouldn’t be there and we can get rid of

What a complete waste of time. Their time would be better spent securing our borders and enforcing the rule of law regarding immigration, destroying and defunding 0bamacare and the agencies that are destroying this country because of outrageous, unnecessary regulations.

Beating. Dead. Horse. the time to seriously investigate Obama´s eligibility for ANY office in this country was before he was permitted to file for election. At this point, Yoho is simply marginalizing himself. Better he should get solidly behind the defunding efforts.

Allen West´s question will do the job. It is:

What passport did you use when you traveled to Pakistan when you were in college?

(U.S. citizens were forbidden to travel to Pakistan at the time).

I was not originally an avid birther. I figured he likely wasn´t born in Hawaii but thought it would be found out in time. Unfortunately, it was not. I believe that what Joe Arpaio discovered is reason enough to keep the investigations going until the truth is proven out.

I say go for it. Who cares if the horse is dead if the truth comes out eventually? Proof is the one thing we have never had. I´d like to see proof whichever way it turns out. This guy and his life story stink to high heaven. We deserve better.

What´s going to irritate me the most is when in about 10 years, everyone who knew the truth starts admitting it.

Is there a cite of authority for the claim that there was a travel ban in effect? I don´t see it as a dead horse, where there is smoke.... Nor do I buy the defense that we can´t do more than one thing at a time, that is, if we pursue this we can´t pursue border security.

Since there is no statute of limitations on Fraud, go after him on that. It has been proven by scientific means the long form birth certificate is a fraudulent piece of work......comparable to what the illegal aliens crossing the borders of USA buy for themselves.

jugears presented the bc as a legitimate and certified instrument. He lied......thus tried to defraud the citizens of the USA. Start rounding up those complicit with this action.......starting in HA and up to Pelosi for certifying it for his first voter fraud win.

#8, when the Philadelphia attorney (Philip Berg) filed with the SCOTUS that obama was not Natural Born Citizen, he had a document showing that obama was a citizen of Indonesia when he lived there (late ´60´s?)

That alone makes obama ineligible.

I´m all for it. It isn´t waste of time. If it is found out that there is credible evidence that calls into question Zippy´s eligibility to be president then it will create chaos and call into question EVERYTHING he has done; all legislation he has signed, executive orders he has issued, etc. It will bring down this post-Constitutional government.

It is NEVER too late to investigate the legality of a pResident´s ability to hold the office. Agree it should have been done in 2007/2008, however, now is a better time to start than later. IMO we have been living under a fraudulent, criminal administration since 1/20/2009. Everything that has occurred since that time needs to be invalidated. Can´t even imagine how one would make whole all of those individuals and companies who have been wrecked by the illegal actions of a usurper pResident and his criminal administration. For my money - what is left - this is the most severe constitutional crisis since the founding of our republic.

I say go for it.

We should be able to access his college records... did he enroll as a foreign student?

How did he travel to Pockie-stan?

Did he ever regain U.S. citizenship after being an Indonesian citizen?

O-Bomber is a fraud.
We should negate all his actions and laws.
This is worth doing. It takes less effort
and expense, and there would be fewer people involved, than it would take to
overturn O-Bomber KommieKare or follow any other lengthy detailed procedure.

This is a political "kill shot."
Go for it. It would also divide and destroy the DimWitz Potty... what could they say
to defend an unconstitutional fraud?

I´m more optimistic than poster #7, if the investigators working with Rep. Ted Yoho and Rep. Steve Stockman start with going to Sheriff Joe, Philadelphia attorney, Philip Berg and writer Jack Cashill for their help and perhaps a peek at their research.

That could give them a huge head start at finding "where the bodies are buried" in 0bama´s past.

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check.

Steve Lynch is a Democratic Rep. from Massachusetts who doesn’t hesitate to buck the party line from a centrist point of view, and to speak openly about problems in the party and with party positions. Lynch ran for Senate to fill John Kerry’s seat, but lost in the primary to now-Senator Ed Markey. Lynch recently was interviewed by The Boston Herald about upcoming Obamacare problems and how devastating they will be for Democrats.

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote.

But the French aristocrat and American think tanker have the measure of the federal behemoth in the age of Obama. Writing in 1835, Tocqueville eloquently predicted how it would function, while Crews today supplies in his annual compilation of federal rules and regulations, “10,000 Commandments,” the hard numbers that describe the behemoth´s contemporary reach and costs.

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House.

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?
