Ken Bennett's "Birther" Request Shows the Insanity of Arizona's GOP

If you need an explanation as to why birtherism is alive and well in Arizona, just spend a little time with the alter kocker kooks who regularly attend meetings of Mesa's Red Mountain Tea Party, the epicenter of far-right extremism in the Valley of the Sun.

Each week in the auditorium of a Mesa charter school, hundreds of geezer Teabaggers with one leg in the tomb meet for extended bitch sessions and speeches from local politicos presided over by founder Randy Hatch, whose pale countenance and coal-black hair lends him a mortician-like vibe.

Not everyone there looks like they could pass for a World War II vet (or the wife of one), but let's just say that only a tiny minority need not worry about losing their choppers when biting into a hunk of sirloin.

Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett, in the crosshairs of a Red Mountain Teabagger.

Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett, in the crosshairs of a Red Mountain Teabagger.

That's not to knock old people. I mean, I aspire to be a senior citizen one day. But these geriatrics are so far to the right that they would make Ronald Reagan seem a flaming lefty, were he still above ground.

Their articles of faith hold that Sheriff Joe Arpaio could walk on Tempe Town Lake if he wanted, that all Mexican immigrants are "dirty" (just like Sheriff Joe says), and that President Barack Obama was, without a doubt, born in Kenya and, therefore, is ineligible to be the nation's chief executive.

The big problem is, these crazy old 'baggers actually have power. Nearly every GOPer running for office eventually goes before them to prove his or her conservative bona fides.

Sadly, these fossils are the activist base of Arizona's GOP, and woe be it to any Republican who does not cater to their whims, like the fantasy that President Obama's birth certificate is a forgery.

That's why I almost felt an ounce of sympathy for Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett as I watched him address the Red Mountain Tea Party this past Monday, with Hatch moderating.

Bennett recently put himself front and center of the birther madness by asking the state of Hawaii to verify that it has in its possession Obama's original birth certificate, which shows he was born in Honolulu on August 4, 1961, making him a natural-born citizen of the United States and eligible to be president.

Never mind that Obama's "certification of live birth" was made public four years ago or that in 2011, Hawaii's Department of Health issued a waiver to its own rules and produced two certified copies of Obama's so-called "long form" birth certificate, one of which the White House posted to its website for all the world to see.

Loretta Fuddy, current director of Hawaii's Department of Health, granted that waiver and signed a letter to the president stating, "I have witnessed the copying of the certificate and attest to the authenticity of these copies."

Fuddy serves at the pleasure of Hawaii Governor Neil Abercrombie, a Democrat, but the verification of Obama's birth certificate is bipartisan and stretches back to 2008, when Dr. Chiyome Fukino, health-director appointee of then-Republican Governor Linda Lingle, issued a statement saying that she had "personally seen and verified" Obama's birth certificate, which is in her department's possession.

In 2009, Fukino issued another statement, insisting that she had "seen the original vital records maintained on file by the Hawaii State Department of Health verifying that Barack Hussein Obama was born in Hawaii and is a natural-born American citizen."

Fuddy's letter and Fukino's statements all are available via Hawaii government websites, by the way.

Keep in mind that the electronically generated "certification of live birth" made public in 2008 has legal validity and is what any native son or daughter of Hawaii would receive upon request of a copy of his or her birth certificate.

But tinfoil-hat wearers, like those in the RMTP, never die (until, one by one, they actually do), because they hate Obama. They're also suspicious of the fact that his dad was from Kenya and that he's the product of a mixed-race marriage, and — let's be honest — that he's the nation's first African-American president.

After all, does the birth certificate or place of birth of über-Caucasian and Pat Boone wanna-be Mitt Romney ever get questioned? Of course not, because to an entire class of Republican doofuses, being white is equivalent to being American.

It's no mistake, for instance, that the one characteristic RMTPers have in common — other than their decrepitude — is a general lack of melanin.

To some degree, the bigoted idgits of the RMTP are reflective not only of Sand Land's GOP but of this place in general, as a recent Morrison Institute poll showed that a whopping 60 percent of Arizona voters support the concept behind a "birther bill," with 76 percent of GOPers supporting it and 58 percent of Democrats opposing it.

This leaves about 42 percent of Dems (or dem-wits) who need to be drummed out of their own party.

Maricopa County's cynical top cop knows a good thing when he eyeballs it, which explains the sheriff's "cold case posse" spending a reported $40,000 on a sham "investigation" into birther claims, concluding (surprise, surprise) that there is "probable cause" to believe Obama's long-form birth certificate is a "forgery."

The question Ken Bennett needs to answer is--was it worth it? His antics transcend Arizona's crazy right-wing bubble and make him known across the country as a punch line. Congratulations.

When you feel something in your gut, you know it's the truth....Obama is a FRAUD of the highest order...and unfortunately he happens to occupy a position of great power, thanks to the sheep that followed him into the corral.....I'm the bull that was standing on the hill, witnessing the great roundup....soon, there will be more corrals and more truths revealed, but it will be too late for the sheep. Where did all the sheep go?......Ohbaaaaamaaaaa......Feeeeemaaaaaaa

Just like Obama.....couldn't have said it any better myself...Just insert the leftists names....and you have a "ringer"....and closer to the truth...Obviously, you have your OWN INTERPRETATION, of what the law truly says...and it ONLY APPLIES to a PRESIDENT.....of which OBAMA ISN'T....He's a POSER and an OCCUPIER, and eventually the REAL TRUTH WILL REVEAL ITSELF.....

Who do these elected officials get their authority from ! And who authorizes their Attorney Fees.What Happened to the Oath to uphold the rule of law and the Constitution.. Seem's that everyone does whatever they feel like. Fly to China. Go investigate in Hawaii. Any thing and every thing, To Make a fool out of American and Arizona Citizens.Only way to straighten this out. Looks to me like no more Partison Ballot's, Just Post the office they are running fore. So you can vote across Party Lines to eliminate some of these Candidates who want a position, as a dictator, or Bios Elected official with other than a sincere person who believes in Equality..Governor who refuses to meet with leaders south of the Border. But spend entire weekend cow towning Christian Corperate church goers. But refuses to have an audience with Working Class Organizations.I never thought I would ever see America so Mis-Managed in my life.

Mitt Romney's father was born in Mexico, according to the just-released birth certificate of Mitt. Did anyone verify that his father entered the country legally? Or is he an "illegal immigrant" (which means Mitt is not a legal citizen and can't be President)?

If Hawaii had a legitimate birth certificate for Obama, it would have been shown long ago. They say they have one but they never show it. Duhh! Obama's attempt to pass off a forgery blew up in his face. While many experts say it is a forgery, not one -- not one -- has testified that it is real. When Obama went to Hawaii last December for a vacation, why didn't he walk into the Dept. of Health with a reporter and ask to see his BC? That would ended the controversy. The only possible reason he did not is that there is no Hawaii BC! Simple.

We who live in this state, should realize that we are the laughing stock of this United States. We have a Governor that is so ill bread that she feels she has the right to shake her finger in the face of the President of the United States when he came to visit our state. If she didn't know how to respectively act to the leader of this Nation, she might have asked someone with some Class how she should act! We also have another person who gives out idiotic remarks whenever he opens his mouth. Senator McCain has been in office for HOW long as a representative of Arizona and up to now, I can't remember anything of any significance that he has done of this state? Both of these people need to be put out to pasture, as soon as if possible. I love my State, but the direction it is going, It's actually pathetic.....

Hmmm, let's see now. Your objectiver reporter, Mr. Stephen Lemons, finds that I am -- in alphabetical order -- a bigot, crazy, decrepit, a doofus, a fossil, a geezer, an idiot, a kook, and a tinfoil-hat wearer. In addition, my teeth are loose. And we have not even met! As for the rest of his ramblings, a Hawaiian certification of live birth is given to anyone who asks for it. No one has seen Obama's long form BC. A former Hawaiian senior election official has given a sworn written statement that it does not exist. Each of those who has said it does has been a Democrat politician or bureaucrat, and we know their reputation for . . . well, never mind. But they never show it. Obama isssued a so-called copy, but several experts say it is a forgery. Not one expert has said it is not. If it exists, why not show it? Last December, Obama went to Hawaii for a 17 day vacation. Why did he not take a reporter to the Hawaiian Dept. of Health and ask to see his BC? He is aware of controversy. Why did he not have his BC shown? There is only one possible reason. It does not exist. Plus, of course, his social security number is a Connecticut number, a place where he has never been. His selective service certificate has been judged a forgery. He attended Occidental College with foreign student financing. But I digress. If Obama's BC exists, then show it! How simple can you get?

Experts agree that the "released birth certificate" is a forgery. I have not heard of one expert say that it is valid. So why would Obama go to the trouble of manufacturing a BC if there is a real one? Also, Obama spent 17 vacation days in Hawaii last December. While there why did he not walk into the Dept. of Health with a reporter and ask to see his BC? The only possible reason is that there is no such thing. And a former senior elections clerk in Hawaii has made a sworn statement that there is no Hawaiian BC for Obama. The White House is being occupied illegally.

Had the privilege of evaluating a number of soldiers who were born in American Soma and were applying for Security Clearances. Their Birth Certificates stated that they were natural born.

As usual you selectively respond to my discussion. Even if he was born in Colon, his father was an active duty Naval Officer assigned to that duty station. McCain as every other dependent born overseas to an active duty military or government employ on a foreign assignment is NATURAL BORN.

Your arguments are spurious and logic is faulty.

On Apr 25, 2011, Loretta Fuddy director of the Hawaii Dept of Health released copies of the archived, original, long form birth certicate.
http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog...
This certificate clearly states that Barack Obama was born in Kapiolani Hospital located on Honolulu HI on Aug 4, 1961 at 7:24pm and the certificate was filed on Aug 8, 1961.

Ms Fuddy says in her letter that, "I have witnessed the copying of the certificate and attest to the authenticity of these copies".

So there are now only TWO possibilities that can be considered:

(A) The released long form BC is genuine and proves beyond all doubt that he was born in Hawaii.

(B) The released long form BC is fake. Either someone in the past created a fake long form BC and Director Fuddy is unknowingly passing on a forgery OR Director Fuddy HERSELF had this forgery created. In any case, SOMEONE managed to create a fake archival record inside the actual Hawaii Dept of Health record depository and also do it in a way that is undetectable.

With the release of the long form BC, (B) is the ONLY claim birthers can now make when they say Obama was NOT born in Hawaii. But that is a VERY SERIOUS charge and serious charges require serious proof. Regardless, from this point forward, any birther who challenges Obama's birth in Hawaii is, in effect, claiming that (B) happened.

obama's lawyers admitted that the so called long form birth certificate posted on the internet is a photoshop forgery in a courtroom in an EASTERN state that might keep the little messiah creep off their ballet. i'm so sorry i ever laughed at the birthers. there is something very wrong when the administration puts out a relatively clumsy fake in response to chris mathews calling for them to just show people there really was one. why a fake? nothing would have been better than a forgery.

Many poorly informed people seem to not understand that a person born in the United States or any of its possessions (including military bases) IS AN AMERICAN CITIZEN. It makes no difference whether one or both OR neither parent is an American citizen. This is expressly stated in the 14th Amendment to the Constitution. This is one (but not the only) reason that the Tea Party and the Birthers oppose the 14th Amendment. It could be stated quite accurately that the Civil War and its over 600,000 American dead was fought to preserve this principle. The Tea Party loonies are NOT your friends!

Here is my final say on all this. For the not-born-in-Hawaii theory to be correct, it would mean that someone had to falsify the Hawaii birth archives and the newspaper birth announcement archive. It would also mean suppressing ALL evidence of foreign birth (such as travel records of Obama's mom being in Kenya at the time, etc) AND it would also mean that all of this was done in advance of Obama even becoming the Dem nominee never mind becoming President.

How is that even remotely possible to create fake records without some evidence of forgery? Is that even possible? And how could this be done without SOMEONE knowing this and blowing the whistle? And could ALL evidence of this supposed foreign birth be completely suppressed? Furthermore why in the world would anyone even agree to forge Hawaiian-born and suppress foreign-born evidence for Obama before he was even a nominee or before he even announced his candidacy?

The whole idea is just absurd. But of course the birthers KNOW THIS in their heart.

And BTW, John McCain was the REAL FOREIGN- BORN NON-qualified candidate! Check out:

Hard as it is believe, AZ is actually in play for Obama. There is a legitimate chance (perhaps remote, IMHO) that Obama could win AZ.

Is it any wonder, then, that Bennet, the AZ Chair for Romney, would desperately try to find a way to keep Obama off the ballot?

This reeks of the incompetence of Shane Wikfors, the AZGOP communications director, who continues to push the Republican party away from conservative values and into the crazy land of the radical right.

It's time to reclaim AZ for the conservatives. It's time for Wikfors to go.

You can't argue with bigots and stupidity. Luckily they are a dying breed of a by gone era of hate.

The accepted custom is all caps equates to raising your voice. Regardless, you continue to refuse to answer my other questions regarding your need for childish ad-hominem attacks. Not to mention the dearth of substance in any of your comments.

And you are making a fool of yourself by continuing to insist that a COLB = a birth certificate. They clearly are not the same thing. Repeating a falsehood over and over will not make it true.
