Tancredo’s Conspiracy Theory: Obama Hides His Birth Certificate To Stir Up The Right And Make Us Look Crazy

One can always count on former congressman Tom Tancredo to make some off-the wall statement and keep an absolute straight face while doing so.  Now that most sane people have dismissed the “birther” movement as some wack-a-doodle wing of the right, Tancredo is doing what conservatives have done for ages when caught with no rational explanation for their follies:  “The left-wing loonies did this on purpose to make us look crazy”.  It never fails.

During a speech in 2008, Michelle Obama mentioned her husband’s famous trip to Kenya in 2006 and referred to it as his “home country,” most likely referring to the fact that he has immediate ancestral ties there. Video of the comment recently surfaced on YouTube, sending the far-right birther movement into a frenzy.

Referring to the comments, former GOP congressman and anti-immigrant crusader Tom Tancredo told a Tea Party audience, “If his wife says Kenya is his homeland, why don’t we just send him back?” Fox News’ Alan Colmes asked Tancredo about his statement on Colmes’ radio show yesterday. “Do you think he was born there?” Colmes asked. “I have no idea, believe me I have no idea,” Tancredo said, adding that whether or not he was born there, “I do not believe Barack Obama loves the same America that I do” because he wants to turn the U.S. into “a socialist system.” Tancredo then placed himself firmly in the birther camp:

COLMES: Do you really believe – you know he was born in Hawaii right?

TANCREDO: I have absolutely no idea where he was born.

COLMES: You’ve seen he was born in Hawaii; he was in two Hawaiian newspapers within two days of his birth.

TANCREDO: Anybody can put an article in a newspaper. Just show me your birth certificate!

Tancredo then claimed that Obama is purposefully withholding his birth certificate in order to fuel birther conspiracies that make the right wing look nuts:

TANCREDO: Now they very well not want to show it because they want to propagate this whole thing that’s going on about birthers. … They may be doing it for that reason; I don’t know why they don’t want anyone to see it. … They want it propagated because you know –

COLMES: It makes your party look nuts!

TANCREDO: Yeah well maybe that’s why they don’t produce document, I don’t know

Fox News’ Glenn Beck has also claimed that “the birther issue” is a conspiracy created by the Obama administration, alleging that “operatives on the left” leaked video of Michelle Obama’s speech to “stir the pot.”

“I could probably fill the better part of my afternoons responding to the general lunacy of somebody like Tom Tancredo,” White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said of Tancredo’s original comments, adding, “I have no real desire to do that.”

Transcript:

COLMES: By the way congressman, did you actually say about Barack Obama if his wife says Kenya is his home country why don’t we just send him back?

TANCREDO: Yes I did! Absolutely.

COLMES: Did you actually say that?

TANCREDO: That’s what she believes hey who am I to argue with that?

COLMES: So you want to send him back there to Kenya?

TANCREDO: Exactly. It’s the same way we talked about sending Bush back to Texas and Clinton back to Arkansas. You talk about that in terms of the politics of it, that’s what I was doing. Talking about 2012, send him back home and if his home is Kenya, who am I to argue with it.

COLMES: Do you think he was born there?

TANCREDO: I have no idea, believe me I have no idea. My point in that whole thing was that whether he was actually, whether she was talking about his, the physical homeland, the place where he was born or she was just talking about his “home country” being that’s where his heart is – it’s not America.

COLMES: You think his heart is not in America? […]

TANCREDO: I do not. I do not believe Barack Obama loves the same America that I do, the one that the Founders put together. I do not believe that. I think that he wants that changed. I think –

COLMES: He doesn’t love America?

TANCREDO: You see what he does, every single day and you see the way he talks, even in his own books and you get the certain sense and I certainly do, that the America that I believe in, the one that the Founders put together is not the one he wants. He talks about the Constitution being a flawed document.

COLMES: Congressman, you don’t believe that the President of the United States loves America?

TANCREDO: Not the America that I love, okay? So we’ve got two different opinions about what America is.

COLMES: What America does he love?

TANCREDO: He wants a different America an America that is described by perhaps any of his mentors, his pastor or his friends on the left.

COLMES: What has he done to make that kind of America? I’m not aware of anything he’s done.

TANCREDO: You’ve got to be kidding. You can’t really suggest that you don’t think he is trying to move America —

COLMES: No not at all.

TANCREDO: — away from the Founders –

COLMES: Not at all.

TANCREDO: — to a socialist system.

COLMES: Do you really believe – you know he was born in Hawaii right?

TANCREDO: I have absolutely no idea where he was born.

COLMES: You’ve seen he was born in Hawaii; he was in two Hawaiian newspapers within two days of his birth.

TANCREDO: Anybody can put an article in a newspaper. Just show me your birth certificate!

COLMES: Why would they have put an article in a Hawaiian newspaper?

TANCREDO: Hey! You got me! Why would you not show your original birth certificate?

COLMES: The certificate of live birth has been shown.

TANCREDO: No, no, no, no, that is of no consequence. That means nothing; you can do that on the internet.

COLMES: So let me get this straight, a little baby is born in Kenya –

TANCREDO: Now they very well not want to show it because they want to propagate this whole thing that’s going on about birthers and making it —

COLMES: Well they are coo-coo for coco puffs.

TANCREDO: Yeah, they may be doing it for that reason; I don’t know why they don’t want anyone to see it.

COLMES: So the crazier the right goes, the better for people like me?

TANCREDO: Exactly.

COLMES: So let me get this straight congressman, so he’s born in Kenya –

TANCREDO: I have no idea where he was born.

COLMES: — and somehow it appears in two Hawaiian newspapers that said he was born at a local Hawaiian hospital because they knew that 40 some odd years later he would be President of the United States?

TANCREDO: I have no idea. Of course not. Of course not.

COLMES: So how would that happen?

TANCREDO: There could be other reasons why someone would want to put a thing in the paper saying that you were born there.

COLMES: Why would the reason be?

TANCREDO: How do I know? Maybe he wanted to be born in the United States?

COLMES: So this little baby, it was decided back then, his parents decided, we want him to be born in the United States? […]

TANCREDO: Perhaps! How do you know? How do I know?

COLMES: Why can’t you accept that he was born in Hawaii when it was written at the time that a certificate of live birth – the Secretary of State of Hawaii has said he was born in Hawaii! Why don’t you believe that?

TANCREDO: Produce it! The one that has the doctor’s signature. That’s the reason why this all goes on.

COLMES: It makes your party look crazy!

TANCREDO: It goes on as I say, they want it propagated because you know –

COLMES: It makes your party look nuts!

TANCREDO: Yeah well maybe that’s why they don’t produce document, I don’t know.

COLMES: Wouldn’t it make you look saner to acknowledge he was born in the United States?

TANCREDO: Why should I? How do I know that?

COLMES: Where were you born?

TANCREDO: I was born in Denver Colorado.

COLMES: How do I know?

TANCREDO: I have a birth certificate to prove it.

COLMES: How do I know? I’ve never seen it.

Just When You Thought Taitz Couldn’t Get Any Battier!

batshit crazy taitzOh, For Goodness Sake  blog has a way of reporting Orly Taitz’ ridiculously insane antics that is absolutely hilarious.

See for yourself:

Dr. Orly Taitz, Esq. posted a “Declaration” dated November 5, to her web site late last week, foreshadowing a Motion to Reconsider in Barnett v. Obama, which was dismissed on October 29. The Declaration, apparently a working outline for the Motion, now forms an Exhibit to the Motion to Reconsider filed yesterday. Only the only knows why.

In ten less than single-spaced pages Orly’s deranged narcissism is on full display. (I don’t know why her loved ones don’t intervene, I really don’t.)   Much more here…

10 Most Paranoid Obama Conspiracies

24bkehz

The Huffington Post, as usual scores again with this:

In honor of Obama’s November 4th anniversary, we’ve pulled together for you the most paranoid trips down the Obama conspiracy rabbit hole. Birthers, fake thesis, satanic messages, we’ve got it covered. Some of the theories here have faded since their conception, but some are still giving off that iridescent glow of insanity and total inaccuracy. Now vote to let us know which one you think is the craziest:

1.    Obama Is Not An American Citizen

One of the most popular Obama conspiracy theories (aka the Birther Movement), endorsed (or not denied) by the likes of Tom Delay, Lou Dobbs, Chuck Norris and Liz Cheney, it claims that Obama is not an American citizen, thus rendering his presidency illegitimate, or something. The theory hinges on the false claim that his birth certificate is fake. Birther queen Orly Taitz (a lawyer and dentist from California) continues to lead the march, despite her lawsuit getting thrown out and a $20,000 fine.

2.    Obama Wants “Re-Education Camps For Young People

Rep. Michelle Bachmann (R-Minn.), a proponent of many bizarre and outlandish critiques of President Obama, declared in April that the White House was trying to install youth re-education camps.

3.    Larry Sinclair’s Rabbit Hole Of Insanity

This one is a doozy. Larry Sinclair, a petty criminal specializing in forgery, spread wild accusations via YouTube involving gay sex, drugs and possible murder committed by Barack Obama. At one point reporters apparently took Sinclair seriously enough to attend a press conference he gave, most remarkable for his lawyer’s appearance in a kilt, which he explained was intended to secure comfort for his unusually large sexual organs: “Those at the other end of the spectrum find [pants] quite confining.”

4.    The Case Of The Fake Thesis

5.    Bill Ayers Wrote ‘Dreams From My Father”

6.    Obama As Antichrist

7.    Tells America In His Acceptance Speech To “Serve Satan”

8.    Hugo Chavez Funded The Obama Campaign

9.    Michelle Banished Barack’s Girlfriend To The Caribbean

10.  Malcom X is Obama’s father
