Birthers and Donald Trump Can Go Fuck Themselves

I Fat Bastard stopped being a Republican in 2006 but what really sealed the deal was McCain picking the moron Palin. While the GOP remains the party of greed and gluttony they are now overshadowed by the sex sandals, lies and racism. The party of Reagan is no more and this Birther shit has really pissed me off. The GOP (Group Of Perverts) is trying to fire up the racist and moron vote with this latest ugly reincarnation of the Birther movement now led by that flaming asshole Donald Trump aka Ronald Rump because he is such an ass face. As a response to Rump's latest load of lies Bigger Fatter Blog is presenting conclusive evidence that like the song says, our president Barack Obama was BORN IN THE USA!

This evidence come from many sources and was compiled by the CONSERVATIVE St Petersberg Times and FACT CHECK. This was all explained in August of 2008.


Here's the 411 on Obama's place of birth.

Born in the U.S.A.
The truth about Obama's birth certificate.
Summary
In June, the Obama campaign released a digitally scanned image of his birth certificate to quell speculative charges that he might not be a natural-born citizen. But the image prompted more blog-based skepticism about the document's authenticity. And recently, author Jerome Corsi, whose book attacks Obama, said in a TV interview that the birth certificate the campaign has is "fake."

We beg to differ. FactCheck.org staffers have now seen, touched, examined and photographed the original birth certificate. We conclude that it meets all of the requirements from the State Department for proving U.S. citizenship. Claims that the document lacks a raised seal or a signature are false. We have posted high-resolution photographs of the document as "supporting documents" to this article. Our conclusion: Obama was born in the U.S.A. just as he has always said.

Update, Nov. 1: The director of Hawaii’s Department of Health confirmed Oct. 31 that Obama was born in Honolulu.
Analysis
Update Nov. 1: The Associated Press quoted Chiyome Fukino as saying that both she and the  registrar of vital statistics, Alvin Onaka, have personally verified that the health department holds Obama's original birth certificate.

Fukino also was quoted by several other news organizations. The Honolulu Advertiser quoted Fukino as saying the agency had been bombarded by requests, and that the registrar of statistics had even been called in at home in the middle of the night.
Honolulu Advertiser, Nov. 1 2008: "This has gotten ridiculous," state health director Dr. Chiyome Fukino said yesterday. "There are plenty of other, important things to focus on, like the economy, taxes, energy." . . . Will this be enough to quiet the doubters? "I hope so," Fukino said. "We need to get some work done."
Fukino said she has “personally seen and verified that the Hawaii State Department of Health has Sen. Obama’s original birth certificate on record in accordance with state policies and procedures."

Since we first wrote about Obama's birth certificate on June 16, speculation on his citizenship has continued apace.
Some claim that Obama posted a fake birth certificate to his Web page. That charge leaped from the blogosphere to the mainstream media earlier this week when Jerome Corsi, author of a book attacking Obama, repeated the claim in an Aug. 15 interview with Steve Doocy on Fox News.
Corsi: Well, what would be really helpful is if Senator Obama would release primary documents like his birth certificate. The campaign has a false, fake birth certificate posted on their website. How is anybody supposed to really piece together his life?
Doocy: What do you mean they have a "false birth certificate" on their Web site?
Corsi: The original birth certificate of Obama has never been released, and the campaign refuses to release it.
Doocy: Well, couldn't it just be a State of Hawaii-produced duplicate?
Corsi: No, it's a -- there's been good analysis of it on the Internet, and it's been shown to have watermarks from Photoshop. It's a fake document that's on the Web site right now, and the original birth certificate the campaign refuses to produce.

Corsi isn't the only skeptic claiming that the document is a forgery. Among the most frequent objections we saw on forums, blogs and e-mails are:
  • The birth certificate doesn't have a raised seal.
  • It isn't signed.
  • No creases from folding are evident in the scanned version.
  • In the zoomed-in view, there's a strange halo around the letters.
  • The certificate number is blacked out.
  • The date bleeding through from the back seems to say "2007," but the document wasn't released until 2008.
  • The document is a "certification of birth," not a "certificate of birth."
Recently FactCheck representatives got a chance to spend some time with the birth certificate, and we can attest to the fact that it is real and three-dimensional and resides at the Obama headquarters in Chicago. We can assure readers that the certificate does bear a raised seal, and that it's stamped on the back by Hawaii state registrar Alvin T. Onaka (who uses a signature stamp rather than signing individual birth certificates). We even brought home a few photographs.


The Obama birth certificate, held by FactCheck writer Joe Miller

Alvin T. Onaka's signature stamp

The raised seal

Blowup of text

You can click on the photos to get full-size versions, which haven't been edited in any way, except that some have been rotated 90 degrees for viewing purposes.

The certificate has all the elements the State Department requires for proving citizenship to obtain a U.S. passport: "
your full name, the full name of your parent(s), date and place of birth, sex, date the birth record was filed, and the seal or other certification of the official custodian of such records." The names, date and place of birth, and filing date are all evident on the scanned version, and you can see the seal above.

The document is a "certification of birth," also known as a short-form birth certificate. The long form is drawn up by the hospital and includes additional information such as birth weight and parents' hometowns. The short form is printed by the state and draws from a database with fewer details. The Hawaii Department of Health's birth record request form does not give the option to request a photocopy of your long-form birth certificate, but their short form has enough information to be acceptable to the State Department. We tried to ask the Hawaii DOH why they only offer the short form, among other questions, but they have not given a response.

The scan released by the campaign shows halos around the black text, making it look (to some) as though the text might have been pasted on top of an image of security paper. But the document itself has no such halos, nor do the close-up photos we took of it. We conclude that the halo seen in the image produced by the campaign is a digital artifact from the scanning process.


We asked the Obama campaign about the date stamp and the blacked-out certificate number. The certificate is stamped June 2007, because that's when Hawaii officials produced it for the campaign, which requested that document and "all the records we could get our hands on" according to spokesperson Shauna Daly. The campaign didn't release its copy until 2008, after speculation began to appear on the Internet questioning Obama's citizenship. The campaign then rushed to release the document, and the rush is responsible for the blacked-out certificate number. Says Shauna: "[We] couldn't get someone on the phone in Hawaii to tell us whether the number represented some secret information, and we erred on the side of blacking it out. Since then we've found out it's pretty irrelevant for the outside world." The document we looked at did have a certificate number; it is 151 1961 - 010641.


Blowup of certificate number
Some of the conspiracy theories that have circulated about Obama are quite imaginative. One conservative blogger suggested that the campaign might have obtained a valid Hawaii birth certificate, soaked it in solvent, then reprinted it with Obama's information. Of course, this anonymous blogger didn't have access to the actual document and presents this as just one possible "scenario" without any evidence that such a thing actually happened or is even feasible.

We also note that so far none of those questioning the authenticity of the document have produced a shred of evidence that the information on it is incorrect. Instead, some speculate that somehow, maybe, he was born in another country and doesn't meet the Constitution's requirement that the president be a "natural-born citizen."

We think our colleagues at PolitiFact.com, who also dug into some of these loopy theories put it pretty well: "It is possible that Obama conspired his way to the precipice of the world’s biggest job, involving a vast network of people and government agencies over decades of lies. Anything’s possible. But step back and look at the overwhelming evidence to the contrary and your sense of what’s reasonable has to take over."
In fact, the conspiracy would need to be even deeper than our colleagues realized. In late July, a researcher looking to dig up dirt on Obama instead found a birth announcement that had been published in the Honolulu Advertiser on Sunday, Aug. 13, 1961:

Obama's birth announcement

The announcement was posted by a pro-Hillary Clinton blogger who grudgingly concluded that Obama "likely" was born Aug. 4, 1961 in Honolulu.
Of course, it's distantly possible that Obama's grandparents may have planted the announcement just in case their grandson needed to prove his U.S. citizenship in order to run for president someday. We suggest that those who choose to go down that path should first equip themselves with a high-quality tinfoil hat. The evidence is clear: Barack Obama was born in the U.S.A.

Update, August 26: We received responses to some of our questions from the Hawaii Department of Health. They couldn't tell us anything about their security paper, but they did answer another frequently-raised question: why is Obama's father's race listed as "African"? Kurt Tsue at the DOH told us that father's race and mother's race are supplied by the parents, and that "we accept what the parents self identify themselves to be." We consider it reasonable to believe that Barack Obama, Sr., would have thought of and reported himself as "African." It's certainly not the slam dunk some readers have made it out to be.

When we asked about the security borders, which look different from some other examples of Hawaii certifications of live birth, Kurt said "The borders are generated each time a certified copy is printed. A citation located on the bottom left hand corner of the certificate indicates which date the form was revised." He also confirmed that the information in the short form birth certificate is sufficient to prove citizenship for "all reasonable purposes."

Nice work fat bastard! Fat acceptance is a lot more than whining about skinny people.

Thank you for bringing fat acceptance into the mainstream.

Fat Bastard said...

We try our best glutton girl. Thanks for your support.

We at BFB seek to trump Trump's lies with the facts and cook and eat him like a Trump rump roast. He also hates fat people like Rosie O'Donnell.

FOODY FOODY FOODY FOOD-EH... FOOD-EH.

Celebrity Glutton Apprentice.

On our last episode, 12 models were divided into two teams, and were assigned to each eat as much as possible.

The goal? To get HUUUUUUGE.


I don't get what the big hubub is about all this stuff, I consider the top issue of our day to be two things. 1) More Social Security for Obese Americans. And 2) More research into new food products. All the rest is just secondary to my sedentary lifestyle.

When I was a kid I was taunted and teased mercilessly every day. Because I was fat. My parents love me so they fed me. They wanted me to be big and strong so that I would be able to succeed, and I have to say that that has definitely happened.

Anyway I say don't vote for Donald Trump, or David Spade, or Melissa Joan Hart. Vote for Club. A club sandwich. Or David Spade actually, he bangs lots of hot models and unlike Trump he doesn't marry them, so he's smarter and has better leadership skills. He could sum up our national problems with "Washington Minute" and go "I liked it better the first time... ... ... when it was called Medicare."

OINK OINK OINK.

I am so fat these days, that I really feel like I am coming into my own. I'm starting to love this awesome body of mine, which is a wonderful playground. I also love HOT DOGS. You need to write an article about HOT DOGS and the PIZZA BOY BURGER!!!

BELLY BOY, GOUT
Belly Boy eats an entire Belly Boy Burger, then takes a projectile dump on the front row of the audience, who collectively orgasm.

Boom Shakka Lakka Donald Trump
Got more shit in his head than Belly Boy's rump.
Not sure what Trump is worth.
But his mama took a shit that was Donald's birth.

Fat Bastard drops the mic pops a wheelie with his power chairs, does a few donuts as he eat a few boxes of donuts and power slides off the stage. HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Good afternoon Fat Bastard:

I just wish all these right-wing Retardicans would just leave Obama alone!

They all have a proverbial bug up their collective ass because they're all pissed off that we have elected a black president.

Hey! All you fucking Retardican ignoramuses with shit-for-brains! DEAL WITH IT!!!

I like Obama! I voted for Obama! I think he's kind of cute! If I were to meet him in person, instead of just giving him a hand shake, I'd want to give him a hug instead.

Of course the Secrete Service might intervene, so, I'll just have to settle for giving him a hand shake instead. Oh well.

Of course, I do have one complaint.

Here lately, Obama has been all too willing to compromise and make concession to ease some of the pressure from the far right.

No, he seriously needs to grow a pair!

He needs to get more guts! I don't care where he gets 'em if he has to buy, beg, barrow, or steal 'em or grow some in a pot!

He needs to get more guts in order to stand up to all these right-wing whack-jobs!

Most likely, I will vote for Obama again in 2012, because I don't want some Retardican moron in office who has shit and a Bible for brains!

Obama just needs to grow a pair!

Of course, I'm a fine one to say that, because I have a shrunken pair myself, but since I'm not President, then I don't need any balls.

But since Obama is President, then he need more balls! BIG BALLS!!!

And I don't mean base, basket, or foot either.

I mean, REAL BALLS!!!

Fat Bastard said...

That Donald Rump is a big ass.

I really wanted Hillary of Obama although I like Obama but Hilliary has fattitude. Arguably our best pres was her husband Bubba and he was fat and he liked porking fat girls.

Barrack is too civilized. Maybe if he's gets fat and really mow down on food he'll have the moxy to be more aggressive.

I like Barrack too. He's really smart and unlike the Neo CONS he loves America.

It looks like I, Fat Bastard pwned that scumbag Donald Dump Rump Trump. I'd like to get all my weight behind a punch and wreck his ugly come over. I think Rump is a latent fat boy. He too needs to show his baldness, eat like a pig and get fat.

Fat Bastard said...

Trump is a womanizer and a liar and he need the shit beat out of him.

Yeah! Just punch him in the face rally hard, and beat his shit for brains outta him!

We need to dump Trump!

BELLY BOY said...

Boomp, boomp, broomp, broomp!

HEY HEY HEY!
IT'S FAAAAAAAAT BELLY BOY!!
AND I'M GONNA SING A SONG FOR YOU-OOOH
AND BILL'S GONNA TEACH US A THING OR TWO
WE'LL HAVE A GOOD TIME, WITH ME AND ALL THE GANG
LIVIN' LAUGHIN' LEARNIN', WHILE WE DO OUR THAAANG!
NAH NAH NAH, GONNA HAVE A GOOD TIME!
NAH NAH NAH, GONNA HAVE A GOOD TIME!

So yeah, I'm not a birther. I think that Donald Trump should release his birth certificate, and also he should stop with the comb over and just go natural and bald.

Also, he needs to gain about 400 lbs if he really wants to win the election, because we need the leadership only a fat man can provide. In politics, it's all based off of a school yard mentality, and who ever is bigger usually wins. I would be a great politician because I am so big that it would be hard to out argue me.

Just think about it like this, when I get up in your face, you will back down. I weigh so much that I would be the best politician ever.

We need more fat leadership in top leader positions here in the USA. We do have guys like Chris Christie who is fat in New Jersey, but former fatties like Mike Huckabee are also dominating the scene, taking stage time away from the fatter politicians on the right side of the isle.

The food isle! oinkoinkoink

On the left there are few fat people of note. The left is full of thin people, and they don't have the same ability to dominate arguments with their fat like a fat man or woman can. Perhaps nothing is more powerful than a passionate argument from a very very fat person yelling at the top of their lungs, red in their face, veins popping, 3 inches away from your face with spit flying at you and you can see particles of their lunch in their teeth and mustache.

And that's just if it's a woman yelling at you!

HEYYYYY-OOOOOOOO!!

BELLLY BOY, GOUT

Belly Boy starts to walk off stage but slips on a banana peel! He falls onto the ground, but lands belly-first, protecting him from any real harm. He then gets up and walks off stage for real, and goes to a large hot tub to get all of the grease and sweat out from between his many folds.

You forget one thing Teddy, Trump is a dump... a big nasty steaming dump like the kind that comes of Belly Boy after 5 Belly Boy and 5 Pizza Boy Burgers.

You know he's really bad when even Bill O'Reilly goes after him.

Fat Bastard said...

Belly Boy you would make a great president. Your powers of persuasion are amazing. You have managed to get an army of people to feed you through fattitudinal manipulation. If you spoke to the UN you could stay there and have a temper tantrum until the entire world agreed to world peace.

There is your campaign song.

We want Belly Boy for Prez
He'll give us all some giant Pez
He's always in a happy mood
As long as he has lots of food

EAT BITE 1 2 EAT BITE 3 4 EAT BITE 1 2 3 4!

As president your top priority would be food and when people are eating and cooking they aren't fighting although the Chef has told me that he has had a few food fights.

Our greatest presidents have been fat. The fattest was William Howard Taft and William Jefferson Clinton. These guys were so fat that they needed to use all three of their names. The skinny presidents used initials ie FDR, LBJ, JFK.

You Belly Boy will need 5 names and because you are so fat you will need three slots on the ballot.

BELLY BOY said...

BELLY BOY HERE,

I wish I could run for President but I am well under the 35 year age minimum to run.

I think there should be a 35 BMI minimum to run for President as well.

As for world peace, that is not my cause. I want to tackle world HUNGER. Once the world is no longer hungry, we can move on to obesify the planet.

BELLY BOY, GOUT

The obesification of earth should be the goal of all world leaders.

I thought it was common knowledge that Barack Obama was born on a distant planet home to the Reptilians and that he has come to Earth to control the masses through a technique Conspiracy Theorists have referred to as 'Hope-nosis'.

Fat Bastard said...

Even though Obama is a Muslim who hates Israel the Jews went back in time and planted his birth announcement in the Honolulu Times.
