GOP Rep. Neugebauer: Obama has Never Produced a Birth Certificate

Rep. Randy Neugebauer (R-TX) was on a Texas radio station yesterday where here explained his support a Republican floated bill which would mandate that all presidential candidates file birth certificates with the Federal Election Commission. When asked about Obama about Obama’s citizenship he said, “I don’t know.” Perhaps he needs to visit FactCheck.org.

Here is the audio courtesy of Think Progress:

Neugebauer was asked about the birth certificate bill. He said, “You know that is a Constitutional requirement, and when office holders go whether it is a city council, or a state rep or a United States congressman, there are certain requirements that they must meet, and you know there was some question in the last election, about both candidates, so why not just have that candidate furnish documentation that says that this particular individual is a natural born citizen and then all of these questions aren’t lurking out there. It doesn’t apply to the last election. Some people think it is a bill to throw out Barack Obama, it’s not. It’s saying in the next presidential election let’s make sure that presidential candidates meet the Constitutional requirement.”

When asked if he thought Obama was a U.S. citizen, Neugebauer relied on the tried and true birther excuse, “I don’t know I have never seen him produce documents that would say one way or another.”

Neugebauer really needs to visit FactCheck.org, which wrote that, “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.”

The fact is that Obama’s birth certificate is not hidden. It is in his Chicago office. The reason why Rep. Neugebauer has never seen any evidence is because he doesn’t want to see the truth. The birther bill is going nowhere, because even if the bill was passed, conspiracy theorists would find some other way to doubt Obama’s citizenship. FactCheck also has high resolution photos of the Obama birth certificate. The birther bill is pointless and unnecessary. It is nothing more than a way to keep a conspiracy theory alive.

  1. ……Perhaps he needs to visit FactCheck.org.

    YEAH ? aaaand ?
    what’d facT check base their assumption ON ?
    a certificate of live birth ?

    maybe you need to go back there and reread it.
    no birth cert has been produced as oboMba’s lawyers keep blocking this

    Wrong, Obama never has blocked anything talk to the state of Hawaii as it is not their policy to release long form birth certificates. If you don’t believe me, ask them.

  2. If he really has a foreign birth certificate, all the better.. but the way things are now, Obama is ineligible to be President due to his father not being a National of the United States.

    The Constitution requires him to be a Natural Born Citizen, which is specialized jargan meaning someone who is born without any competing citizenships or allegiances… in other words… someone born to two US Citizen parents.

    Natural Born Citizen has a specific meaning and the 14th Amendment did not address the issue of Natural Born Citizen.. it merely established that those born on US soil were citizens at birth.

  3. Why would anybody visit that for the truth?

    Wrong, wrong wrong, Here is the truth from their website, “We are a nonpartisan, nonprofit “consumer advocate” for voters that aims to reduce the level of deception and confusion in U.S. politics. We monitor the factual accuracy of what is said by major U.S. political players in the form of TV ads, debates, speeches, interviews and news releases. Our goal is to apply the best practices of both journalism and scholarship, and to increase public knowledge and understanding.

    The Annenberg Political Fact Check is a project of the Annenberg Public Policy Center of the University of Pennsylvania. The APPC was established by publisher and philanthropist Walter Annenberg in 1994 to create a community of scholars within the University of Pennsylvania that would address public policy issues at the local, state and federal levels.

    The APPC accepts NO funding from business corporations, labor unions, political parties, lobbying organizations or individuals. It is funded primarily by the Annenberg Foundation.

  4. There IS however a Certification of Live Birth – however not even the state of Hawaii accepts that document as proof of a Hawaiian birth.

    In Hawaii at the time of BHO’s birth a US citizen could register a foreign birth within the first year. Child would be a US Citizen, not a Natural Born Citizen, not a native born Hawaiian. In Hawaii there are certain lands reserved for sale to ‘native born Hawaiians’. A COLB like BHO posted online WOULD NOT be accepted by Hawaii as proof of a Hawaiian birth.

    It’s funny when all you uninformed ‘eligiblers’ claim that Zero’s Birth Certificate has been posted online or has been verified.

    Are you guys really that ignorant that you don’t know the difference between the documents – or are you intentionally trying to help cover up this very legitimate question with your lies?

    The fact is – even if he WAS born in Hawaii (which has NOT been proven) when he moved to Indonesia and became an Indonesian citizen he would have to renounce his US citizenship – and would NEVER again be able to regain Natural Born Citizenship status (as is required by the Constitution to be President).

    J M Easley – don’t you hate it when the people who leave comments are more educated on a subject than you are and they end up making you look like you really don’t know what the hell you are talking about?

    You have posted flat out lies and half truths in an effort to run interference for an usurper. You should be ashamed of yourself.

    Try actually looking into the facts.

    COLB is NOT proof of a Hawaiian birth – even in Hawaii.
    Announcement in the weekly shopper is NOT proof of a Hawaiian birth.
    Announcement by Hawaiian officials that they have a document on record in accordance with state law is NOT proof of a Hawaiian birth.

    Those are the only facts the ‘eligiblers’ have – and NONE of them prove a Hawaiian birth.

    That is really all there is to the story. People can speculate about where he was born all they want one way or the other – bottom line IT IS NOT PROVEN EITHER WAY!

    Do your own research. Investigate both sides of the story. If you are objective you will come to the only logical conclusion – Eligibility has NOT been proven.

    Note: Eligibility has been proven repeatedly. I tend not to believe people that can produce no evidence outside of their own personal theories. Interestingly, the distinction that you make between the two documents is not the opinion of the United States government

  5. Obama has paid over $800,000.00 in lawyers fees to avoid showing his Birth Certificate, which he has never done. I do not believe FactCheck, as they have already been soundly discredited for mistakenly stating that the Certificate of Live Birth is proof. It is not. A child born in Sweden (…or Kenya) can get a Hawaiian Certificate of Live Birth if his mommie moves to Hawaii.

    Nobody pays $800,000.00 to keep a document hidden, and then shows it to a bunch of people… not even a snot-tard capuchin like Racky da Whosane.

  6. No, there isn’t even a Certification of Live Birth. What Factcheck touched, if anything, was a web printout with a forged embossed seal, which doesn’t match the seal image supposedly on the other image.

    But the kicker is — Hawaii has never received, much less acted on, a request to issue a Cerification for Barack Obama. It’s a rather formal process with a specific application form, and none was ever even filed for or by him.

    So whatever is pictured on the Website and may have been printed out is some kind of pastiche of others’ Certs.

    HAR, HAR, HAR. The Foolish Fraud Fumbles Again.

  7. Hawaii’s dept of records official has stated that in 1961 Obama’s certificate of live birth “was widely given out to non US citizens” and is NOT allowed as proof of citizenship for jobs in Hawaii. If is ONLY allowed as proof of citizenship AFTER 2001. Prior to 2001 the long form certificate is required. ALL the Hawaii officials have said is that Obama’s COLB is “within the laws of the State of Hawaii”. That is true, but that is not proof of a natural born citizen.

    Further, Obama has sealed his college records where it is alleged he went on a “foreign aid scholarship.” Why?

    Finally, Obama traveled to Pakistan by his own admission in 1981. Pakistan was on the US no visit list in 1981. Therefore Obama could not have gone there unless he had a NON US passport, i.e. was a NON US citizen at the time.
    I believe there is ample evidence to insist he prove he is not just a US citizen, but a “Natural born US citizen” by releasing his long form vault birth certificate and college records.

    BTW, fact check.org has a history of being founded by left leaning organizations. It is not beyond belief that they have an interest in tweaking the truth to their agenda.

  8. The issue really has nothing to do with the BC. It has to do with the fact that Obama, as he freely admits, was born with dual-citizenship, thus possibly not a NBC. Personally, I think he was born in Hawaii to a US Citizen mother and a British national father.

    Unfortunately, according to Senator’s Leheay and McCaskill, and even Obama himself, it requires 2 US Citizen parents to produce a NBC. That was the context of the bill they illegally passed to make McCain eligilible. McCain in my opinion too, was ineligible.

    If nothing else – actions speak louder than words. It was Obama, who well after his 21st birthday travelled to Kenya (on the US Taxpayer dime) to campaign for a PATERNAL relative who believes in Sharia Law. Not a good scenario for trying to convince the public that you have no continuing divided loyalities or alliegences to another nation. The question is – did he campaign for Odinga out of PATERNAL LOYALTY or because Obama too, believes in Sharia Law?

    More Obama actions, calls into question the appointment of Harold Koh as a legal advisor. Koh not only believes in Sharia Law, but also Transnationalism. Both of these are very UN-American beliefs and ideals, in my opinion.

    Actions speak much louder than words.

  9. Funny, he worked as a “community organizer” for the Annenberg Foundation, the same foundation that claims his birth certificate is real. There are many forensic and document experts who have proven the document is 100% fake. Just google it. Notice no one addresses the reason he STILL has not produced his college grades, did he graduate? Maybe he flunked out like his father. Also note that the press was not allowed near his grandmother, very interesting, you know the one who died, from a “broken hip” ?????

  10. “FactCheck.org staffers have now seen, touched, examined and photographed the original birth certificate.”

    Everything about that statement is a lie.

    No FactCheck.org staff members have seen Obama’s “original birth certificate.” What they have seen is Obama’s Certification of Live Birth,” and forensic document examiners have examined and certified the document posted on the Internet to be counterfeit..

    Furthermore, FactCheck’s examiners are not qualified to determine the provenance of any document. One of them is an English master and the other is a political scientist (phudd).

    That FactCheck continues to refer to Obama’s COLB as a “birth certificate” on a page entitled, “The truth about Obama’s birth certificate” is laughable.

    FactCheck.org is complicit in this great conspiracy.

  11. too funny, its like the nut cases that say we never landed on the moon…..unreal how many people are ignorant enough to fall for this inane conspiracy

  12. Well it seems the crack heads are back, People deal with it, Obama is the President you cannot change that, no matter how hard you wish. Not only that, he is a good President so get it over it already. Quit your bitching and crying, seek help if need be, but for the love of GOD stop it! You lost, not only that you keep repeating the same old tired lines, over and over again, enough, we get it you don’t believe that Obama is President, he is, stop hurting you cause by acting like a bunch of losers, and start putting forth ideas. Get a clue the general populous dose not give a damn about the birth certificate, you BIrthers are starting to sound like a bunch of right wing terrorists. You are turning people away from you cause with this bullshit.

  13. Corporals from Austria, senators from Indonesia, we just have to get behind the “leader” and never question. And if you do question, get ready to wear the label that comes with it.

  14. Hawaiian newspapers’ birth listings have Obama being born on the day his birth certificate says he was born. Or were they part of the conspiracy way back then.

  15. Has anyone asked why Obama’s parents would have decided to go back to Kenya for the birth of Obama? Has anyone asked why his mother, in her first pregnancy, would have left the security of an American hospital for the insecurity of a Kenyan hospital? Has anyone asked how they could have gotten the money to make a round trip to Kenya for the birth? Has anyone asked how her parents would have felt about this? (This is a key question because they would have been the ones to come up with the tickets) Once these questions are asked, the whole fallacy of Obama being born overseas is apparent.

  16. I strongly believe many people who voted for Obama voted for him because of the eneptitude of his predecessor . Aside from fulfilling his duty to keep the citizens safe he FAILED as President along with several/many members of his cabinet.

    The question which many on this board and other boards on the internet have failed/refuse to answer is “if President Obama has nothing to hide why hasn’t he produce his “Original Long form Birth Certificate”.

    I really think, when the time comes and he decides to run for a second term, his opponet should ask him point blank “Mr President when can the American voting public expect to see your “Original Long form Birth Certificate” on national T.V. President Obama will NOT be able to hide.

    I

  17. What is the big deal in producing Mr Obamas “Original long form birth certificate”
    If he has nothing to hide, then just produce it to the American voting public and move on. He has not produced his OLFBC for the reason which only he knows.

  18. […] GOP Rep. Neugebauer: Obama has Never Produced a Birth Certificate … […]

  19. Re: “Obama has paid over $800,000.00 in lawyers fees to avoid showing his Birth Certificate, which he has never done.”

    Baloney. All the lawsuits against Obama were to stop the election or to stop the certification of the election.

  20. Clever. The Annenberg Political Fact Check doesn’t receive outside funding – but its primary funder, The Annenberg Foundation sure does. And as we all know, he who pays the piper calls the tune.
    Aside from the birth certificate (the physician signed long form), where are the Passport Records, Illinois Bar Records, Occidental, Columbia and Harvard College Records, Selective Service Records, Illinois BMV Records, Illinois Senator Records, High School Records…ANYTHING provided by BHO which proves the claims he made. The records have been demanded from every other US Presidential candidate (and provided) in recent memory – with one exception – President Obama
