Texas bill, Birth certificate required for presidential candidate, Texas secretary of state, Obama birth certificate, Lubbock Avalanche-Journal
“Why has Obama, for over 2 years, employed numerous private and government attorneys to avoid presenting a legitimate birth certificate and college records?”…Citizen Wells and millions of concerned Americans
“When you pick up your morning or evening newspaper and think
you are reading the news of the world, what you are reading
is a propaganda which has been selected, revised, and doctored
by some power which has a financial interest in you.”…. Upton Sinclair
From the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal November 17, 2010.
“A state representative on Tuesday filed a bill that would require any candidate for president or vice president of the United States to show his or her birth certificate to the Texas secretary of state, another indication of just how ambitious the conservative agenda for next year’s session of the Texas Legislature is expected to be.
“This bill is necessary because we have a president whom the American people don’t know whether he was born in Kenya or some other place,” Rep. Leo Berman, R-Tyler, said in reference to President Barack Obama and of House Bill 295. “If you are running for president or vice president, you’ve got to show here in Texas that you were born in the United States and the birth certificate is your proof.”
Berman’s bill specifies that “the secretary of state may not certify the name of a candidate for president or vice-president unless the candidate has presented the original birth certificate indicating that the person is a natural-born United States citizen.”
If the Legislature passes the proposed legislation and Gov. Rick Perry signs it into law, it would become effective on Sept. 1, 2011, six months before the state holds its 2012 presidential primaries.
Berman’s proposal is similar to one introduced in the Arizona Legislature this year which prompted the Arizona Republic, the largest newspaper in that state, to write: “The legislation originated from a fringe group that believes President Barack Obama is not a natural-born citizen of the United States and therefore ineligible to be president.”
The so-called “birther movement,” which questions Obama’s citizenship, started during the 2008 presidential campaign and though most news organizations have reported that there is overwhelming evidence that the president was born in Hawaii in 1961, there is small percentage of the U.S. population which is not convinced.”
My response to the following paragraph from above:
“The so-called “birther movement,” which questions Obama’s citizenship, started during the 2008 presidential campaign and though most news organizations have reported that there is overwhelming evidence that the president was born in Hawaii in 1961, there is small percentage of the U.S. population which is not convinced.”
The following is a factual statement:
“most news organizations have reported that there is overwhelming evidence that the president was born in Hawaii in 1961”
Most “news organizations” did repeat that lie.
“there is small percentage of the U.S. population which is not convinced.”
Apparently, the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal is part of the conspiracy to perpetuate the lies.
July 2009 AOL Poll: 81% say Obama should release birth certificate.
August 2009 Public Policy Polling of Virginia:
Born elsewhere 24%
Not sure 24%
July 2010 CNN Poll: Less than half were convinced of Obama US birth.
Probably born in US 29 %
Probably born elsewhere 16 %
Definitely born elsewhere 11 %
So, Lubbock Avalanche-Journal, what is your excuse for inaccurate reporting?
You tell me and I will report it.
A good start would be to report the facts. I will be glad to assist you.
