Trump sends investigators to Hawaii to look into Obama?
http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2011/04/07/trump-s...

Self-proclaimed birther Donald Trump is now so doubtful of President Obama's birthplace that he's sent a team of his own investigators to Hawaii in hopes of getting to the bottom of the issue.

That's according to Trump himself, who, in an interview with NBC, warned his investigators just might uncover "one of the greatest cons in the history of politics and beyond."

"I have people that have been studying it and they cannot believe what they're finding," Trump said an interview that aired Thursday Morning.

******************************************

I'm sure Trump can pay for higher quality forged documents than the other birthers have come up with.

2. Too bad for them Hawaii is not cooperating with Birthers anymore. The "question" has been answered.

3. I don't know which is worse ...
that Donald Trump is considering a run for President, or that there are people out there who are considering to actually vote for him.

4. Maybe he'll pay back all of the money he owes first.
He's such a rotten crook--he owes billions yet he has money for this nonsense!

for invasion of privacy.

6. How bad would life have to be
in order to actually have to work directly for that douche-bag?

Imagine showing up at the Honolulu Department of Records, or whatever it's called.

"Hi, I'm an investigator for Mr. Donald Trump....." pause to wait for laughter to subside.... "We are here to....".... .... "Would you quit fucking laughing at me? I have to feed my family too damnit"

11. Yeah he really stepped in it with this one.
Which to me says he's more of an attention whore than a serious contender. If he was serious about it he'd have said, "Until proven otherwise, I believe our President was born in the United States, now can we move on to the important issues?". But he didn't say that, so attention whore it is.

20. Do you have your original birth certificate? States maintain those and only some sort of
validated copy is released to the parents/child. The original has been shown by the state of Hawaii. Anything found in an old book (where's your proof that Obama ever said that?) would be either a decorative certificate from a hospital or a copy of the birth certificate.

38. You don't want to discuss it. What is so wrong about the document released in 2008 by Hawaii?
It wasn't a 'long form'? That it didn't have an embossed seal, which it wouldn't if it was the orginal. Nobody born in the US since 1900 has their orginal birth certificate. The states are mandated to keep them. You may only get a copy (certified or verified in a variety of ways) to have in your possession or use to prove your citizenship.



http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Birth_certificate


In the U.S., the issuance of birth certificates is a State function.

According to the Department of Health and Human Services, Office of Inspector General, as of 2000 there were more than 6,000 entities issuing birth certificates. The Inspector General report states that according to staff at the Immigration and Naturalization Services Forensics Document Laboratory the number of legitimate birth certificate versions in use exceeded 14,000. <23>

A certified birth certificate has a registrar's raised, embossed, impressed or multicolored seal, registrar's signature, and the date the certificate was filed with the registrar's office, which must be within 1 year of your birth. Please note, some short (abstract) versions of birth certificates may not be acceptable for passport purposes.

Most hospitals in the U.S. issue a souvenir birth certificate which typically includes the footprints of the newborn. However, these birth certificates are not legally accepted as proof of age or citizenship, and are frequently rejected by the Bureau of Consular Affairs during passport applications. Many Americans believe the souvenir records to be their official birth certificates, when in reality they hold little legal value.<25>

ZOMG!

While we're at it, why can't Glenn Beck just come out and prove that he didn't rape and murder a young girl in 1990?


Should be simple enough, what's he hiding?

42. I wish I could say you missed some excitement, but their spiel is about as exciting as oatmeal.
Birther boilerplate: "original documents, Obama can't prove they aren't false (these idjits don't get that whole thing about the impossibility of proving a negative), ad boredumb.

I don't think Donald would promote anyone or anything other than Donald. If he were a fictional character, people would find him too farfetched to believe.

9. We have this thread here floating around the top of GD but I'm
not seeing any comments regarding the live interview just done on CNN with Trump.

If you asked me, he just shot his chances all to hell.

Honestly, I think he had a really good chance, given America's celebrity worship, until this birther crap. Now he just sounds insane.

34. The City and County of Honolulu needs to scrutinize Trump's new Waikiki building very closely
Edited on Thu Apr-07-11 01:44 PM by KamaAina
alas, the new mayor is an ex-prosecutor dillweed, so that probably won't happen.

The new governor, however, is a good Dem, so maybe the Department of Taxation could give it a look-see. (Note: His repuke predecessor utterly and completely repudiated the birfers.)

We've paid off every wigmaker in the universe for the sole purpose of letting the world have a damn good laugh at the Donald's expense.
