Meet the Father of Modern Birtherdom | linked by EricaThunderpaws

Meet Poppa Birther, the Father of Modern Birtherdom, aka FOMB
May 21, 2010

Special hat tip to Mountain P. Goat for mail he sent me today. Modern Birtherdom didn’t start with Orly Taitz questioning Obama´s birthplace, it was started by Jonathan Turley questioning John McCain´s.

It is not like Jonathan is a relative unknown, his blog proudly advertises his street creds, VOTED THE #1 LEGAL THEORY AND LAW PROFESSOR BLOG OF THE TOP 100 LEGAL BLOGS BY THE ABA JOURNAL IN 2008. And as can be seen in the screen shots below, he is the darling of the Liberal Left Media.

  1. U.S.-born children of U.S.-citizen parents are definitely, without doubt, natural born citizens; and

    natural born citizenship is established only at birth and cannot be acquired after birth through naturalization.

    The Constitution does not, in words, say who shall be natural-born citizens. Resort must be had elsewhere to ascertain that. Is this Fact?

  2. Where are the supposed Constitutional scholars? How can they be a constitutional scholar if they don't know what a Natural Born Citizen is? Volohk Conspiracy, Ann Althouse are 2 supposed Law Prof Blogs that refuse to discuss. Volokh has publicly said that Native born = Natural Born. Lawrence Tribe defined it as "those born w/in a country's territory AND ALLEGIANCE" during the Res. 511 hearings. Seems to me that was 2 criteria, the last of which is ignored regarding Obama .
