Rush Limbaugh On Obama Birthday: ‘Not That We’ve Seen Any Proof of That’


limbaugh-rushThere are few who could have successfully avoided the brouhaha that has developed over Barack Obama’s birthday. There were 84.6 million responses to a Google search for those words.

But talk radio icon Rush Limbaugh is suggesting that there’s still some uncertainty.

“Tomorrow is Obama’s birthday,” he said yesterday. “Not that we’ve seen any proof of that.”

He continued, “But tomorrow is Obama’s birthday and they’re trying to rally Obama’s base by sending out fundraising letters.

“What? What? … What, Snerdley, what? We haven’t seen any proof of that. They tell us Aug. 4 is the birthday. We haven’t seen any proof of it. Sorry. It is what it is,” he said.

The issue touches on Obama’s eligibility to be president under the Constitution’s requirement that a president be a “natural-born citizen.” Numerous experts in computers, documents and imaging have stated emphatically that the “Certificate of Live Birth” image released April 27 by Obama as “proof positive” of Obama’s eligibility appears to be a forgery – which probably was created on a computer and then printed out – not an original document that was scanned and then reproduced.

California attorney Orly Taitz is scheduled to serve a subpoena on state officials in Hawaii on Monday, which is supposed to allow her to see the original documentation the state has regarding Obama’s birth.

Computer scanning expert Doug Vogt and typesetting expert Paul Irey have said they will accompany Taitz when she presents to the Hawaii Department of Health the subpoena.

Vogt and Irey both told WND they are making travel plans to join Taitz in Honolulu when she goes to the state agency at 10 a.m. on Monday, Aug. 8.

“We will plan to hold a press conference late in the day of Aug. 8,” Vogt said, “and if the document we see varies from the birth certificate documents the White House released, we plan to file criminal charges in Hawaii immediately.”

The subpoena comes in a case Taitz has developed in Washington, D.C., seeking the original application for Obama’s Social Security number, a document that could provide significant information about the president’s early life that relates to his eligibility.

WND previously has reported on the issue that Obama holds a Connecticut-based Social Security number despite allegedly being born in Hawaii, starting his work career in the Aloha State and never having lived in Connecticut.

The first three digits of a Social Security number indicate the state of the applicant’s mailing address. Obama’s number begins with 042, which falls within Connecticut’s range of 040 through 049.

The national news media have been virtually silent on this potentially criminal fact.

Indeed, when Fox News finally attempted to explain it, the news network broadcast false information and then scrubbed the report from its website.

When WND asked the White House about the issue, then-Press Secretary Robert Gibbs dodged the question.

Taitz’ case, against Social Security Commissioner Michael Astrue, explains that because of the numerous questions surrounding Obama’s eligibility, his birth certificate and his other records, a Freedom of Information Act request was submitted.

The demand to Hawaii requires the “original 1961 typewritten birth certificate #10641 for Barack Obama … issued 08.08.1961, signed by Dr. David Sinclair, Stanley Ann Dunham Obama and registrar Lee, stored in the Health Department of the State of HI from 08081961 until now.”

As WND has reported, there long have been concerns about the Social Security number.

“There is obviously a case of fraud going on here,” says Ohio licensed private investigator Susan Daniels. “In 15 years of having a private investigator’s license in Ohio, I’ve never seen the Social Security Administration make a mistake of issuing a Connecticut Social Security number to a person who lived in Hawaii. There is no family connection that would appear to explain the anomaly.”

Does the Social Security Administration ever re-issue Social Security numbers?

“Never,” Daniels told Corsi. “It’s against the law for a person to have a re-issued or second Social Security Number issued.”

Daniels said she is “staking my reputation on a conclusion that Obama’s use of this Social Security Number is fraudulent.”

“A person who wants to hide their true identity often picks up the Social Security Number of a deceased person, thinking that nobody would ever look into it,” Daniels added. “I think it was sometime in the 1980s that Obama decided to hide who he really is.”

There is no indication in the limited background documentation released by the Obama 2008 presidential campaign or by the White House to establish that Obama ever lived in Connecticut.

Nor is there any suggestion in Obama’s autobiography, “Dreams from My Father,” that he ever had a Connecticut address.

Also, nothing can be found in the public record that indicates Obama visited Connecticut during his high-school years.

An affidavit filed by Colorado private investigator John N. Sampson specifies that as a result of his formal training as an immigration officer and his 27-year career in professional law enforcement, “it is my knowledge and belief that Social Security Numbers can only be applied for in the state in which the applicant habitually resides and has their official residence.”

Daniels told WND she believes Obama had a different Social Security Number when he worked as a teenager in Hawaii prior to 1977.

“I doubt this is President Obama’s originally issued Social Security number,” she told WND. “Obama has a work history in Hawaii before he left the islands to attend college at Occidental College in California, so he must have originally been issued a Social Security number in Hawaii.”

The published record available about Obama indicates his first job as a teenager in Hawaii was at a Baskin-Robbins in the Makiki neighborhood on Oahu. USA Today reported the ice-cream shop still was in operation one year after Obama’s inauguration.

  1. What a loon why does anybody take him seriously? Is he completely insane, or perhaps he’s taking too much oxycodone again. Hasn’t this been settled twice already?

  2. Rush has got a great sense of humor. You need to understand how to “read” his comments. It’s l’havdil almost like learning a Gemorah.

  3. It is really unbecoming of a website that claims to represent Torah values to be running such utter mishugas as this story. Do you really want to make Torah Jews appear to the world as nutty conspiracy theorists? How about a few UFO abduction stories to round out the picture.

  4. Oy vey. This news website is starting to loose the news aspect. Stay away from crazy stories like this and focus on your core, talk of yidishkeit, rabbanim and frumkeit in general. talk about NY/NJ stories if you need to, even though plenty of us don’t like in the New York metro area. But stop this Obama-bashing. It makes me want to stop reading here.

  5. I am curious why matzav always seems to pick the “soundbite” they feel will portray Rush in the most Kooky, unflattering manner. Anyone who has listened to Rush knows that he often speaks toungue-in-cheek. You would have a lot more credibility of you posted the whole transcript along with the audio. These are readily available.

  6. I love how liberals twist Rush’s words. That line, “Tomorrow is Obama’s birthday,” “Not that we’ve seen any proof of that.” was said by him LAST YEAR. He said it before the birth certificate was released. So the writer of this article is irresponsible and needs to get the facts straight.
