updated 8/5]Snippet via Mediaite including my commentary; Matthews tore into the long-debunked[my arse!] birther movement in his “Let Me Finish” segment today, calling them “the most un-American of people” for discriminating against the President based solely on, as he puts it, “not because of where he was born, but because of what race he was when he was born”[Obama could be green and he would still not be a "natural born Citizen" as required by Article II Section 1 Clause 5 of the U.S. Constitution] (it is to be assumed that Matthews doesn’t mean the 31% of birthers that approve of President Obama, according to a recent ABC poll). He outlined the blatant fallacies in the general birther argument– the fact that we have seen a copy of Obama’s certificate[what was posted on the internet is nothing but an image of a short-form certification of live birth which does not prove a Hawaiian birth due to the fact any person at that time could have been issued a COLB under the Hawaii Act-96 program, no matter where the person was born, not to mention Hawaii DoH refuses to verify the said COLB and image experts have deemed it a fake.], and the slim likelihood that there were “people around in 1961 who wanted to create this presidency 49 years later[I don't know one "Birther" that claims that asinine THEORY, many people LIE to get the coveted U.S. "Citizen" status which by the way is not the same as a "natural born Citizen"], who were determined to have someone who was only about to be born elected to lead this country.” “They know full well the President was born in America,”[That is not what Michelle Obama and others have stated] he concluded, “they just want to destroy him personally.”[No, we want the Constitution upheld and we want Obama and his enablers, which includes Matthews, to be punished for their crimes against the Constitution] Source. Video of Matthews rant below...
Chris also mentions the birth announcements which do not prove a Hawaiian birth due to the fact they were not hospital generated. The first video below explains the birth announcements.
Now to my headline; you might be wondering why I put Michelle Obama in the headline. It is pretty simple; SHE IS A BIRTHER AND THE PROOF IS COMPILED BELOW.
Update 8/5 via the ObamaFile.com; Matthews asserts several facts that aren't in his assault on the majority of Americans.
He says that Obama's Certification of Live Birth (COLB) was released by the State of Hawaii. That's just not true.
Politifact actually has Janice Okubo, Hawaii Department of Health's Communications Officer on the record denying that the electronic COLB image provided by the Obama campaign -- Robert Gibbels takes credit -- can be authenticated by her or by anyone at the department. Politifact apparently conducted a follow-up interview with Okubo that shows that what Okubo meant was that the Obama COLB only appeared to be be a valid Hawaiian BC, but she could not and did not "verify" that it was a valid Hawaiian COLB BC.
"Still, she acknowledges: 'I don't know that it's possible for us to even say beyond a doubt what the image on the site represents.'"
Okubo had to back off her original claim. And a good thing ... she originally said Obama’s alleged COLB was real because it looked like her own. IOW, she used no formal technique to verify its accuracy. She relied on no official record to verify its accuracy. She just thought it looked like hers. At best, she follows up with a second-hand anecdote, "... our registrar ... thought he could see pieces of the embossed image ..."
Jill T. Nagamine, Deputy Attorney General for the State of Hawaii, has made it clear that her office will not corroborate or back in any way the July 27, 2009 Statement of Dr. Chiyome Fukino, Director of the Hawaii Department of Health, which declared Obama Hawaiian-born and a "natural-born American citizen."
Dr. Fukino had no statutory authority nor duty to make such a statement, and that the Attorney General’s office will not stand behind Fukino’s claim that Obama is a "natural-born American citizen."
So Hawaii has never said they are the source of Obama's bogus COLB. Never!
And Matthews goes off on the "birth announcements."
Nobody has ever seen the birth announcements. These two artifacts come from microfilm/fiche found at the Honolulu library. The librarian just happened to have them on her desk when investigators made inquiries. But, so what? Birth announcements aren't evidence of anything. Birth announcements, like wedding and death announcements are submitted by families, not original sources.
But, no one has ever seen the announcements in a real paper newspaper. So the copies appearing on the net are derivative, not original artifacts.
Of course, Matthews ends with the conclusion that Birthers, and others, want to "assassinate him," meaning Obama, with their lies because they're racists.
So, what's new? Same old lies from the left. No one has ever certified Obama's COLB is the real deal except these two hippies. Source; http://www.theobamafile.com

13 Apr 2010: Obama makes a secret and last minute surprise visit to the Kenyan Embassy with cover story he went to his daughter's soccer game.
On Saturday, 4/10/10, President Obama broke with protocol and left the White House alone without the press in tow. This behavior by a President is apparently unprecedented. He disappeared about the same time the internet was buzzing with the story about Orengo. Cat Corben's article on RedState.com, President Obama Goes To Soccer Game That Didn't Exist? is provocative, and raises some intriguing questions. Please be sure to read it so you understand why this may be important. continued here.

Three members of the U.S. Congress are calling for a probe into the Obama regime’s plan to funding the promotion of the revised Kenyan constitution.
Hmmh? Why does Obama care so much about what is going on in Kenyan politics with his family and cousins over there that he has to keep giving them money -- personal previously during his campaigns and visits there -- and now taxpayers money since he's the defacto President? Hmmh? Connect the dots. Quid pro quo? What is Obama covering up? Could it be this?
