Senator Grassley responds to birther question

Senator Charles Grassley photoIn a meeting yesterday with about 40 constituents in Fort Dodge, Iowa, Senator Charles Grassley, member of the Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry Committee, wanted to talk about the Farm Bill recently passed by his Committee and sent to the full Senate.

What he got were questions about Barack Obama’s birth certificate. Grassley responded:

I have to respect the judges that said they’ve looked at it and found that it’s not an issue.

    Another Idiot Senator. I would just like to know what judge claimed that the birth certificate of Obama has not issue in light of Sheriff Arpaio’s investigation.-

    At first opportunity, I urge all Iowans to VOTE OUT Senator Charles Grassley. He is yet another senator we simply do not need in our Senate.

    Vote out Charles Grassley and Vote in Orly Taitz. Orly will listen to the people and get to bottom of this issue.

    “At first opportunity, I urge all Iowans to VOTE OUT Senator Charles Grassley.”

    Better yet, REFUSE to vote for EVERY single REPUBLICAN who won’t side with the birthers including and especially Mitt Romney.

    I like this plan. I like it a lot.

    We are running out of time with the courts and I don’t think any State Birther Law will pass in time. If a Congressman or Senator asked me what I or we would like them to do regarding Obama’s eligibility problem, the answer is quite simple – File a written objection with the Joint Session of Congress if Obama is reelected. We know we can depend on Orly to file the objection; in fact as far as I know Orly Taitz represents the only SOLE candidate or incumbent we has the intregrity, bravery, and courage to file an objection with Joint Session of Congress. This is not surprising. Orly is from former Soviet Union and those people are fierce fighters as shown by example in WWII.

    John,

    Try to do a little research before you just blab your mouth and make yourself look like a fool.

    In 2009 in the case Ankeny vs Daniels Judge Gibney ruled in Obama’s favor. The birth certificate is real and Mr. Obama is a NBC. It was appealed, of course and Chief Justice John G. Baker agreed with Judge Gibney. The rehearing was denied. Mr. Obama’s birth certificate is real and he is a NBC.

    Judge David Dreyer has also ruled on this, again in Mr. Obama’s favor

    Judge Malihi in GA ruled that the birth certificate is real and Mr. Obama is a NBC.

    Get it threw your thick head man. Mr. Obama’s birth certificate is REAL. He was born in HI in Aug of 1961 and became a NBC upon his birth. There has never been ANY LEGAL QUESTION OR DOUBT OF THIS.

    No matter how much you want to believe in Sheriff Joe, he can’t help you because he does not have any evidence. Orly can’t help you, she doesn’t have any evidence. No one has any evidence that the birth certificate is false.

    That is the crux of the problem you birthers are going to have over and over. The birth certificate has been declared a legitimate legal document. Not by Mr. Obama, but by the only person who has the power to do that. The head of the Dept of Health in HI. The evidence for its validity is OVERWHELMING.

    Don’t be pissed off at Senator Grassely for believing the truth of the legality of Mr. Obama’s birth certificate. Be pissed off at him for his stupid stand on abortion, the environment and many other issues, but not over Mr. Obama’s birth certificate.

    In this case, he is correct. The judges are correct and it is you who are wrong.

    John is what we call a “single-issue voter”. He’s taken a dysfunctional politcal mode of operations and hitched it to the silliest non-issue he could find. Dysfunctional.

    That said, this spineless performance would not inspire me to vote for Grassley either. If he’s never looked into birtherism, fine, he shouldn’t stake a personal position on an unfamiliar issue. But he couldn’t very well tell his Red voters that he isn’t faollowing their concerns, could he? 😉

    John wants to vote out Grassley and vote in Orly. I am pretty sure they are from different states … and different election cycles. Grassley was re-elected in 2010. You’re stuck with him through the remainder of the Obama administration, John. 😉

    You do know that Senators have 6 year terms and are staggered so that only 1/3rd of the Senate is up for re-election at any one time? Well, you do now.

    Grassley was behind the “pimp tax”! I knew there was at least one reason to vote against him.

    You are truly incorrigable. You just never stop. All of the facts surround you here, yet you stop in randomly to spew a chunk of text that is meaningless and hopeless. Good luck fighting that battle in your own mind.

    john: Orly is from former Soviet Union and those people are fierce fighters as shown by example in WWII.

    Plus the Russian winter, abundant oil, and the T-34 tank. Also, Leon Trotsky (born Lev Bronstein), a brilliant military strategist.

    Other than that, you’re right.

    “those people are fierce fighters” The Russian mob in Israel makes the Sicilian mob look like gentlemen. Some Russian mobsters had a shootout on a Tel Aviv beach. Only one bystander was killed. Kudos!

    Here’s my favorite story, from the Prague Post: An Israeli in Prague was sitting in his car, when someone threw a hand grenade under it. The explosion destroyed his car and put him in the hospital, in critical condition.

    A rabbi and his congregation started screaming about neo-Na___, skinheads, and Theresienstadt. They were sorry they made a fuss. Turned out, the man who threw the grenade was also Israeli. They owned competing casinos.

    Moral: don’t mess with Russian mobsters.

    Can’t be. Foggy knows that Birthers’ looking stupid they can manage all by themselves. No help needed. Waste of time.

    But “john” actually being Orly… THAT I could believe.

    He does not know that this is Arpaio’s MO, he holds press conferences, makes accusations, then NEVER follows up with charges. Because Arpaio is not stupid enough to commit perjury.

    Arpaio has been proven incorrect, john. The case is closed. Hawaii has publicly affirmed the authenticity of the birth certificate. That very action makes it a complete impossibility for it to be a forgery. What is ti about this that you’re failing to grasp?

    Who would genii like John really wish to see in Grassley’s place? The guy is so far to the right, the area beyond him is labeled “Terra Incognita—Here be Monsters” …. yet the Tea Party tried hard to oust him. He’s 78, surely will retire in 4 years rather than run at 82, so they’ll get their way … in so far as he’ll be gone. And someone more liberal will take the seat!

    “We are running out of time with the courts and I don’t think any State Birther Law will pass in time.”

    Correction – you are out of time. This was over before it started.

    Four years and over one hundred losses is a row in state and federal courts with EVERY court decision upheld on appeal.
    You’ve already had your day(s) in court. The SCOTUS has turned down close to twenty cert requests.
