If the document is never admitted as evidence, there can not be any testimony about that document, idiot.
How about submitting that document as evidence, dufus. The so-called "birthers" want that document in court. The Democrats will say and do anything to avoid submitting that document as evidence.
Why is that? Do you think it's because they know it's fraudulent?
How about you copy and paste the Democrat party line story about how Ann Dunham met Obama Sr in a Russian language class in September, 1961, from Wikipedia or Snopes or Factcheck, take your pick, and then tell us about Stanley Dunham being photographed meeting Obama Sr at the airport in Honolulu with he arrived in 1959.
lol! Talk to Orly Taitz son. I think I've told you before.

You can label yourself anything you want. But Obama and the radical left are, in fact, creating more problems than we ever imagined. The federal government has gotten to the point of overriding its powers under the Constitution.
It doesn't matter what letter you have by your name to see this - unless you WANT the power to be in the hands of a few. And, yes, Republicans are as much to blame.
There's a new book entitled "The Liberty Amendments: Restoring the American Republic" that's creating quite a stir written by Mark Levin.
Briefly, in 1787, the delegates at the Constitutional Convention and the delegates to each state’s ratification convention foresaw a time when — despite their best efforts to forestall it — the Federal government might breach the Constitution’s limits and begin oppressing the people.
(Well, here we are.)
Therefore, the Framers provided two methods for amending the Constitution - empowering the states to bypass Congress and call a convention for the purpose of amending the Constitution.
The new proposed amendments include:
1. Term limits, including for justices.
2. Repealing Amendment 17 and returning the election of senators to state legislatures
3. A congressional supermajority to override Supreme Court decisions (overruling what could be a stacked court)
4. Spending limit based on GDP
5. Taxation capped at 15%
6. Limiting the commerce clause, and strengthening private property rights
7. Power of states to override a federal statute by a three-fifths vote.
Would you have a problem with any of the above? It's not a partisan endeavor to give the power back to the people where it was always intended to be. It keeps the power out of the hands of the few in both parties.
If a Republican were sitting in the White House right now and we were seeing the abuses of power by powerful government agencies, I'd ditch the "R" and get on board. I've always been prepared to do that when and if Republicans got back in power after mistakes were made by both sides and if they, too, screwed things up.
Aren't you getting tired of both parties screwing things up? Let the states and the people have their power back. It's really a very simple and bipartisan solution. Sounds almost American.
Yes son.

And you people DO imagine quite a bit!

Works for me. Put some accountability back into education. Get the government, all three, out of it. Make teachers and schools suffer the consequences of failing their students. Oh by the way there is estimated to be up to 500 different gangs in the Chicago region.

See? Libtards are brain dead hypocrites.
Canadian Ted Cruz(R-Tx.) is still releasing his birth certificate. Will he find a way to convince the GOP why he wants to remain a Canadian citizen in time to run for U. S. President in 2016?

"It looks like Ted "Canadian Cruise" Cruz has released his "birth certificate" to the Dallas Morning news. Let the birther heads commence to explode.

Cruz Birth Certificate

The article states that he maintains his Canadian citizenship, which was conferred to him by virtue of his birth on Canadian soil. I wonder if Joe Arpaio will send a posse to Alberta to investigate? Where is Donald Trump, and Orly Taitz?? I'm really looking forward to seeing the same level of concern and consistency from the birthers that we saw when they were investigating the President's birth.. LOL"

comes down to who are your close friends.
If they are all members of one group/race your outlook is different.
If you are familiar with only one language or culture the same occurs.

A New York Times report from 30th March 2011 reveals that the CIA had been active in Libya “for weeks”, to “gather information for [NATO] airstrikes, and to contact and ‘vet’ the rebels battling “Gaddafi’s forces”. The New York Times report also states that Obama had signed a presidential finding in the weeks previous, which gave authority to the CIA to arm and fund the rebels. Furthermore, the Independent revealed in March 2011 that Obama had requested Saudi Arabia supply arms to the Libyan militants. Obama had also given his blessing for Qatar and the United Arab Emirates to ship arms into Benghazi, urging them to supply non-US manufactured arms to avert suspicion – in violation of the No-Fly Zone and arms embargo he helped to enforce, and all in total violation of the US Constitution and International Law.

The current Libyan authorities have made little effort to disassociate themselves from reports of large-scale arms shipments bound for Syria, leaving from the port of Benghazi. As stated in a UN Security Council report; the sheer size, monetary and logistical requirement to organise such delivery would almost certainly require at least some local government knowledge and assistance, one Libyan congress-member has openly admitted as such. Moreover, in a Telegraph report from November 2011, it is noted that the post-Gaddafi Libyan military commander Abdel Hakim Belhadj – widely regarded as the former leader of Al Qaeda affiliate: the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG) and a lead figure in the militant uprising against Gaddafi – visited members of the Syrian opposition “Free Syrian Army”(FSA) in Turkey to discuss sending “money and weapons”, and also discussed “Libyan fighters to train troops”.

In a Fox News report from December 2012 an “International Cargo-Shipper” candidly revealed that arms shipments from Libya to Syria commenced “almost immediately after the fall of Muammar Qaddafi”(Oct 2011) and had continued on a weekly basis from multiple ports including Misrata and Benghazi. Some of the “sources” shipments were reported to be in excess of 600 tons. The report goes on to quote anonymous “sources” on the ground in Benghazi as alleging that:“Weapons and fighters were absolutely going to Syria, and the U.S. absolutely knew all about it – though most shipments have stopped since the attack on the American Consulate,”

Furthermore, an extensive UN report from the Security Council group of experts, from April 2013, also highlights the rife lawless proliferation of arms throughout Libya, and seeping beyond its borders. The report stated that arms were fueling conflicts from Syria to Mali, and arms were spreading from Libya at an “alarming rate”. Qatar and the United Arab Emirates were singled out in the UN report for blatant violations of the arms embargo during the 2011 “uprising” against Gaddafi; the report revealed that multiple Qatari arms shipments had been allowed to flow into Libya with the full knowledge and acquiescence of NATO – in much the same way they have been allowed to flow into Turkey from Qatar, with Syria being the final destination.

We Consrrvatives knew that all along!

Why? Are we seekers? Adivination? Mind readers? Not!

We know Liberals!!!

And Liberals lie and are immoral monsters!!!

You forgot to answer the question. Here it is for your convenient reference:
The so-called "birthers" want the exact document shown on the White House submitted as evidence.
Why are the Obama lawyers saying and doing anything to avoid submitting that document as evidence? Do you think that's because even they know it's fraudulent?
How about submitting that document you so-called "liberals" claim is a "birth certificate" as evidence?
Maybe because even you know it's fraudulent?

How is it that an insignificant minoroty of people in the US that support Arab terrorists can put the US on a collision course with Egypt?
There has to be a conspiracy there. One person can't do that.
