Texas “Birther Bill” Congressman Refuses to Show Own Birth Certificate

Randy Neugebauer

Congressman Randy Neugebauer (R-TX), one of almost a dozen Republican House members co-sponsoring the so-called “birther bill” that would require future presidential candidates to submit a copy of their birth certificate to the Federal Election Commission, has refused to provide a copy of his own certificate when asked by reporter Kathryn McGarr of the website Politico. Neugebauer has been outspoken in both his support for the legislation and questioning President Barack Obama’s citizenship, even though officials in Hawaii, where the president was born, have verified the authenticity of Obama’s birth certificate. According to Neugebauer’s congressional biography, he was born in St. Louis, Missouri, on December 24, 1949. Members of Congress are not required to be natural-born citizens.

Incredulous-I tell you are "mature" by your unpersuasive verbage. This person that is holding the office of the presidency is equal to yourself,devisive, disengenuous, unbelievable, uncredible and manipulative. He and his "followers" such as your self interject false cries of racism, and derisiveness into any legitimate arguement just to get their way.It is appauling. This is an abuse of the freedoms of Speech. I reccomend that you stop defending him and let him speak for himself. You never hear him say the words "I am Proud to be an American" and "I was born in Hawaii". Because it just isn't true. And he will never produce the Long form microfiche copy of the Hawaiian Certificate of Live birth because it doesn't exist. (He has online a certifiCATION of live birth-if you can read- not a Certificate). He was born In Kenya. Let him say that he was not. I am waiting to hear it. http://whatreallyhappened.com/IMAGES/kenyabirthcertificate.jpg

“I am not a crook” I am sad to say that Mr. Obama is becoming more Presidential every day. Spending $1.94 Million dollars to not answer a $10 question sounds crooked to me. Lets face it, even if the birthers are right, I am confident my President could find someone to create a birth record that proves he is Dick Cheney’s Hawaiian brother. The State of Hawaii charges $10 to send the certified copy of your birth certificate to a court. According to the Federal Election Commission, in the first 6 months of 2009 alone, my President has paid the law firm of Perkins Cole $1.94 Million Dollars since becoming President to not give the court that certificate. The FEC posts the whole budget see for yourself. I don’t know which side is craziest, the Birthers that say he is Canadian or the Anti-Birthers that deny the obvious fact that the President is non-transparently acting like a crook. Change? In regards to newspaper announcements and websites publishing Mr. Obamas birth certificate, they still do not explain why he does not send that already published birth certificate to the court. At the request of Mr. Obama, he has not allowed anyone to receive and confirm his original records. He has allowed a controlled viewing of a document to a couple of web sites but that is not the same as furnishing a $10 copy to a court of law. In regards to the election, no matter what the results are, Mr. Obama is our President because the Electoral College already voted for him. It does not matter what the voters think, the electors of the State of California can vote for anyone they want regardless of qualifications. Even though the Constitution states the qualifications for President, they offer no method of enforcement or verification. As for impeachment proceedings, I highly doubt a Democratic majority in both houses of congress will impeach a Democratic President elected by popular vote. The riots on the streets will be unprecedented.

Hey Gotown, you're an absolute idiot. To your "points" - 1. No, it's not the same f-ing form as originally recorded and captured to microfiche. But, just because it's a different form, doesn't mean it's fake, States have to re-issue birth certificates all the time, and they use a modern system to do so. Did you see that part at the bottom of the Obama birth certificate that says "This copy serves as prima facie evidence of the fact of birth in any court proceeding"??? Do you have any clue what that means? That means that according to the State of Hawaii (see their seal there?) that document meets any burden of proof in any US court that Barack Obama was born according to the details in that document. He doesn't need anything else, just that piece of paper. 2. Your links don't work here. Post them again and I'll tell you how you mis-read those too. 3. The only reason that the House has to resolve the facts of his birth was because idiots like you refuse to understand the incontrovertible evidence. 4. Are you kidding me? You read that whole factcheck.org article and didn't understand a word? You're actually saying here that "he declared himself dual citizen at birth"? Did you read what you just wrote? Did he cut his own umbilical cord too? Did he get up out of the bassinet and dance the tango too? He didn't declare himself anything at birth, idiot. He just screamed like everyone else. The nation of Kenya may have had laws which recognized him as a citizen, but that and $3 will get you a cup of coffee at Starbucks - US laws don't give a damn who else gives him citizenship. If someone is born in the US, they are automatically a US citizen unless and until they renounce their citizenship or and/or declare allegiance to another country. Read the factcheck.org article again. It says quite clearly: "Sen. Obama has neither renounced his U.S. citizenship nor sworn an oath of allegiance to Kenya". Sweden could pass a law tomorrow granting citizenship to everyone whose name is Barack, but that doesn't mean that he's suddenly ineligible to be President. Get a clue and a life, please.

A Congressman must be a citizen to run for office. That means either a birth certificate or naturalization papers. If the first commenter doesn't think Neugebauer needs to provide the birth certificate, then how about his naturalization papers showing that he immigrated from...Kenya? The other commenter is just another "birther" with his eyes closed. The "Certificate of Live Birth" is what the state of Hawaii has provided to people who request a birth certificate since around the turn of the century. The microfiched copy is the original on file. If the "Certificate of Live Birth" is good enough to get a passport it should be good enough to verify that he is a citizen.

I Applaud the Congressman for opening his eyes. I can not say the same for writer of this article who appears to have a one sided view with eyes closed tightly to the reality the situation. The facts: 1.The "certification " on line at factcheck, fightthe smears is not a microfiche copy of the "Certificate" of live birth that Hawaii issues to its requesting citizens : Notice the difference: a. Certificate of Live Birth (Hawaii) http://www.honoluluadvertiser.com/assets/gif/M1139416728.GIF b.Certification of Live Birth (Obam) http://www.factcheck.org/UploadedFiles/birth_certificate_2.jpg 2.There is documentation he was born in 3 different hospitals in 2 Different Countries. Born in Kapiolani http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=104146 Born in Queens http://my.barackobama.com/page/community/post... Born in Kenya http://www.generationdb.com/ProfileView.aspx... 3.The House of Representatives had to "resolve" that his birthplace was in Hawaii in Hr 111-593 4.He declared himself dual citizen at birth British/ American "In other words, at the time of his birth, Barack Obama Jr. was both a U.S. citizen (by virtue of being born in Hawaii) and a citizen of the United Kingdom and Colonies (or the UKC) by virtue of being born to a father who was a citizen of the UKC 5.Jr. was under British rule at birth. "Sr. was a British subject whose citizenship status was governed by The British Nationality Act of 1948. That same act governed the status of Obama Sr.'s children" http://www.factcheck.org/askfactcheck/does_barack_obama_have_kenyan_citizenship.html So if these facts are not enough for the writer to demand to see Long Form microfiche copy of the "Certificate" of Live Birth then, his eyes are closed tightly for a deliberate reason and will not open for any truth.

Most supporters of Obama/Soreto do not care if he is a natural-born citizen, what kind of grades he achieved in school, his record as a senator, etc..... WHY? BREAL

I was not aware of Congressman Neugebauer being the president of the United States or that he was even running for he office of president. It's Obama who needs to show his birth certificate. Kathryn McGarr needs to read with just a little comprehension to look so stupid.

The Globe and World Net Daily are your sources? I'm sure whatever new and exciting revelations they have are going to be just as reliable as the fake kenyan birth certificate. There is no such thing as a long form birth certificate in Hawaii. Birth certificates are not issued by the Federal government so there is no standard. All states issue and authenticate their own certificates. I don't have a "long form" certificate myself. Yet I was able to obtain a passport with the "short form" certificate I posess. There are not 2 grades of birth certificates. Either its a valid certificate or it is not -and Hawaii says its valid.

Obama has spent, to date, $800,000 in legal fees, to keep a $10 Birth Certificate from the public

New evidence about his Fake Birth certificate and that Obama’s mother didn’t live at claimed address in Hawaii when obama was born The records from a Honolulu title search, obtained by WND, document 6085 Kalanianaole Highway was purchased in 1958 by Orland Scott Lefforge, a University of Hawaii professor, and his wife/companion Thelma Young, who lived at the property and remained owners into the 1970s. http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=106258 And the Globe is running an article about obama’s fake birth certificate. Granted they’re a “gossip rag” but then “The Enquirer” busted John Edwards in spite of denial after denial by him and all the major news agencies. http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=106471 The questions won’t go away until obama releases his hidden records. All he has to do is make the following official public statement, "I Barack Obama authorize the State of Hawaii to release and make public all of my records on file." That's it. Issue over. But he won't because he's a fraud!! Obama knows that millions of citizens want to see it yet he continues to hide it. What and why is he hiding? And maybe more disturbing is why don't BHO's supporters want to know the whole truth, especially since there's a reward of $100,000 for proof that Obama is a "natural born" citizen of the United States? The answer is that Obama’s very own supporters also know he’s a fraud! OBAMA, STOP HIDING. SHOW US THE LONG FORM BIRTH CERTIFICATE AND YOUR OTHER RECORDS!!!!!
