[UPDATED with Orly Cyring "Fraud":] Taitz Admits It's About Time to Put Obama Birth Certificate Issue to Rest (Sorta)

Categories: Breaking News
UPDATE, APRIL 27, 1:36 P.M.: Yes, Virginia, there's still a Birther Movement.

Apparently, after a few hours of letting the news sink in that President Barack Obama released his long-form birth certificate and taking a magnifying glass to the image of it on her TV screen, Orly Taitz has concluded the document is fraudulent.

The latest twist is disclosed in Elspeth Reeve's roundup of Birther reactions for The Atlantic (emphasis is theirs):

The famous "Queen of All Brithers," Orly Taitz, who's played a role in a handful of lawsuits in which soldiers refused to deploy to war zones because their orders came from an illegitimate commander-in-chief, remains unconvinced. She gets points for originality: Her proof that the document is fraudulent is that Obama's father's race is listed as "African." Taitz explained to Talking Points Memo's Ryan J. Reilly, "In those years ... when they wrote race, they were writing 'Negro' not 'African. ... In those days nobody wrote African as a race, it just wasn't one of the options. It sounds like it would be written today, in the age of political correctness, and not in 1961 when they wrote white or Asian or 'Negro'."

Um . . . yeah.

Other Birthers corralled by Reeve include:

  • Andy Martin, who is cast as the "King of All Birthers": "Well, I'll be damned. . . . it looks OK! . . . I'm stunned . . . obviously the pressure got to be too much." BUT: "The pressure for his college records is going to become relentless." (Sidebar: Donald Trump has now shifted from the birth certificate to the college records issue.) AND: "Our god is stronger than Obama's god, whatever his god is."

  • Legislative director Sharon Guthrie, speaking for Texas state Rep. Leo Berman, who introduced a bill requiring presidential candidates to produce a birth certificate: "What I've seen online, what they produced today, still says certificate of live birth across the top. We want to see a 'birth certificate.' The one that we have that says 'birth certificate' is from Mombassa, Kenya, with his footprint on it. He has still not produced an American birth certificate."

  • Phil Berg, who filed the first birther lawsuits: "I'm not that concerned with the birth certificate. . . . Unless there is evidence that he renounced his Indonesian citizenship, we believe he is an illegal president."

ORIGINAL POST, APRIL 27, 9:44 A.M.: First, Dan Amira just posted this snippet of a conversation with Taitz on New York magazine's online edition:

Amira: Are you convinced by the birth certificate? Are you convinced now that he was born in Hawaii?

Taitz: I think it's much better evidence than what we've had before. I think it's a step in the right direction--

Amira: What do you mean "a step"? Isn't this conclusive?

Taitz: Well, as long as, in the sense that the experts are reviewing it, and as long as the experts are saying, "Yes, this is a genuine document that was created at the time [of Obama's birth]," I would say that that would put this issue to rest.

See, even if the birth certificate is legit, Taitz still questions whether Obama is a "natural-born citizen" under the U.S. Constitution, because his American-born mother was married to a Kenyan-born British subject at the time of the president's birth.

Indeed, among the first items posted today on orlytaitzesq.com this morning is her fuming that Chief Justice John Roberts has not yet honored her demand that the U.S. Supreme Court explore the eligibility issue.

The site reveals that Roberts and Obama are not alone in Orly's crosshairs: she's also spreading a petition to recall Arizona Governor Jan Brewer, who recently vetoed a bill demanding presidential candidates provide long-form birth certificates before being declared eligible to appear on ballots in that state.

And there's a heartfelt note from another birther relinquishing the fight to Taitz and Donald Trump. As he does with the fortunes of NBC, the economic health of Atlantic City and the sun shining, The Donald took credit this morning for Obama releasing his birth certificate.

"Today I am very proud of myself because I have accomplished something that no one else has accomplished," said Trump (via ABC News). "I am really honored, frankly, to have played such a big role in hopefully, hopefully, getting rid of this issue."

Naturally, he said he still wants to examine the birth certificate himself, but Trump "hopes it's true" so everyone else will stop asking him about it, freeing him up to pontificate about weightier issues like oil prices, China and whatever the hell that is living on top of his head.

In that sense, Trump does sound presidential.

"We don't have time for this kind of silliness," Obama told White House reporters today. "We've got better stuff to do. I've got better stuff to do."

Now that the Birthers have been utterly discredited, and the Afterbirthers have gained no traction at all, it's time to honor Donald Trump and Orly Taitz in a new way.

Bring on The Corpsers!

We demand to see the long form death certificate! We demand to compare DNA with that of some random guy! We demand to test all documents!

If our demands are not met, The Donald will send his investigators! We will go to CIA, entire senate, World Court and Queen Elizabeth!

The Corpsers have spoken! Long live Orly and The Donald! Death to conspiracies! Death to Soviet Union, but not Moldava! Death to plottists!

When in Atlantic City, be sure to visit the Hotel Trump and Casino Trump!!!

Hey dumb dumb, my birth certificate says "Certificate of Live Birth" as well, as distinguished from the horrifyingly callous birth/death certificate for stillborn births, and so do my kids'. I might not remember my own birth, but I'm pretty damn sure my kids were born in America... I was there.

Upon reading articles about Orly Taitz', I reflect on how sad it is that Ronald Regan closed so many of the Psychiatric Hospitals in California when there are so many unable to cope with reality and in serious need of treatment.

What is Orly Taiz quacking about the President. Obama is a born citizen of the United States. She is a naturalized citizen which is not the same. She can be returned to Russia if she commits a serious crime so she needs to get a life and shut up. SHE IS NOT A BORN CITIZEN OF THE UNITED STATES AND SHOULD HAVE NO RIGHT TO QUESTION THE CITIZENSHIP OF THE PRESIDENT WHO IS A BORN AMERICAN. GO BACK TO RUSSIA OR WHEREVER YOU CAME FROM.

Quick now! Where are the usual loons? BorderRaven? Squeeky? El Monstro? Surely they won't let a little setback like this silence you. There are just so many more lies to tell...

the "millions" Mr Obama has spent to suppress the birth certificate he has now released -- twice

the 379 separate SSNs he has been employing since he was 2 weeks old

his real Kenyan / Indonesian / Plutonian birth certificates

that suppressed photo of him talking to Bigfoot... and so many more.

Come on, after-birthers. We need the comic relief! Don't be shy! Don't run away! Remember Vattell's Law of Nations! Those doctored beach photographs!! The multiple passports!! Harvard Law!!!

Birthers (and after-birthers) tell lies for a living. That is what you do. It is all you know how to do. Don't let a few facts get in your way!! Please... it's never stopped you before. Thank you.

How wonderful!

The lunatic Taitz carries on as if nothing has changed. Ignited by narcissism, fueled by racism, and possessed by rancid anti-Americanism, this crackpot Taitz simply doesn't realize what happened today.

Only the certifiably insane believe a word she says. She presents forged Kenyan birth certificates, semi-literate lawsuits tossed out by every court in which she has filed them, and laughable conspiracy theories.

She has a law 'degree' granted by an unaccredited online outfit, and has the gall to question the credentials of our President -- himself a graduate summa cum laude of Harvard Law.

Orly Taitz is a crackpot from first to last. I, for one, hope she never stops. Not everyone can afford a subscription to Comedy Central. She keeps the nation amused. Thanks!

"What I've seen online, what they produced today, still says certificate of live birth across the top. We want to see a 'birth certificate.' The one that we have that says 'birth certificate' is from Mombassa, Kenya, with his footprint on it. He has still not produced an American birth certificate."

I'm in my office, and actually have my birth certificate in here from a recent lunch trip to the DMV. Sure enough, it says "Certificate Of Live Birth" on the top. It's 30 years and the state of Kansas has assured me that's it. Nothing else. That's my birth cerificate. What the hell is this lady talking about? Okay, more appropriately, what the hell are any of these people talking ?!

Unfortunately the US government has control over and access to any legal document or examination thereof and the powers that be control both republicans and democrats and they will do what they are told or perhaps face mysterious deaths as some have already succumbed to. Now if someone could actually go to mombasa and check the registration book for the registration of births at he coastal hospital we could have a better idea of the truth however I am sure it would not be permissible as evidence in America and would make no difference as to what has already been declared by the US government as being true by decree.

Squeeky is resting quietly on gratewire.com. She has taken to giving Taitz the credit for "making" President Obama "cough it up" and making an issue of why it took him so long to do so. As usual, she is still pimping her junky website and her crappy internet articles.

SO THERE!!!!

(sorry.......just couldn't help myself).

Birth certificates with footprints and other details are hospital records, sometimes referred to as "souvenir birth certificates" and not always accepted as legal documentation now days. Each State has a responsibility for its own "official" birth certification process and many States have gone to the same process that Hawai`i uses--- a "long form" on file (without footprints, etc) and issuance of a computer-generated short form.

I worked in a college admission office for several years in the 1980s and saw hundreds, if not thousands of birth certificates. Every one was labeled either "Certificate of Birth" or "Certificate of Live Birth" - it is an official government term. Birth Certificate is shorthand slang. These birthers are idiots.

Maybe YOU should be the someone that goes to mombasa to check whatever you need to check. Most of the rest of us have better things to do.
