Left-wing Firebrand Lynn Samuels Questions Obama's True Place Of Birth


Libtalker Sirius About Challenging Obama's Claims

It's radio's equivalent of a man-bites-dog story: a left-wing talker jumping into an Obama controversy that even some conservative hosts and bloggers find difficult to discuss.

The flap over Barack Obama's birth certificate and whether he was truly born inside the United States, or in Kenya as some have alleged, seemed to die down a bit after the election. Several recent developments, however, have the Internet once again buzzing:

A US Army Major has successfully (?) argued that he shouldn't be deployed to Afghanistan because the Commander-in-Chief isn't legitimately serving as US president. The Army has now determined that he will not be required to report for duty.

A federal judge in California has agreed to hear a case that would attempt to settle the issue.

Lingering confusion over which Hawaiian hospital is claimed to be Obama's birthplace has raised new questions.

Enter Lynn Samuels, longtime liberal firebrand formerly of WABC radio in New York City and now featured on the "Sirius Left" channel at the satellite radio network. During Monday's program, Samuels made this surprising case for a cover-up in the Obama birth certificate matter:

Samuels is far better known for over-the-top rhetoric against Dan Quayle and other conservatives. Here's an interview she did with a left-wing Internet site after her removal from WABC in 2002.

Given these recent developments, it appears the issue could re-emerge on the political frontburner at an unexpected time. If Obama has definitive evidence to support the claim of a Hawaiian birth, will he bring it forward, or allow this matter to fester for years to come?

  • WND is reporting that the Major has been fired for questioning Obama's birth.

  • While he's at it - lets hear him explain how when he was 20 yrs old - he was able to travel to countries that were off limits to U.S. citizens !

  • I still haven't seen a single shred of documentary evidence that Obama was born anywhere other than Honolulu, HI. There are high res pictures of his BC that clearly show everything that the "birthers" say isn't there, raised seal, signed by the proper authorities, cert number that was blacked out originally because they weren't sure that it was safe to divulge it. It says born in Honolulu. Please would someone produce hard evidence to the contrary other that making a statement or shut up.

  • There is ONE issue here, even if Obama wqas born in Hawaii he is NOT a natural born citizen as required by thge Constitution to be POTUS. Born of 2 US citizens on US soil.

  • This online certificate has one odd thing. I don't recall learning a race designation of "African" either in school or in over thirty years of medical database demographics. Really PC for the sixties...unless.
    And that is what is disturbing. Transparency becomes dissembling.

  • I loved Lynn Samuels, she is hilarious, Wabc should have never got rid of her, this birth certificatething is stupid though, she is getting old, and disoriented obviously. Worldnetdaily is not a news source.
    I don't like Obama too much, but the birth thing is a joke at this point.

    You filthy murderer

  • JDL51,Provide the URL for your bogus document. EVERYONE admits that Obama's VAULT COPY of his BC is locked away and has not been made public.

    Also, add to the discussion the admission documents to the universities that are locked up. Did Obama finance his education with loans for students WHO AREN'T US CITIZENS?

  • In the YouTube clip, it is claimed that Obama previously stated that he was born at Queens Hospital in Honolulu.

    This is false.

    Obama has NEVER claimed to be born at Queens Hospital. A couple of news agencies that didn't do a great job of verifying their facts reported this in error, but Obama has been perfectly consistent that he was born at Kapi'olani, like he said in the letter.

    Just try to find an original source of Obama citing Queens. You won't find one. It's a myth and a rumor.

  • More to point, seeing that Obama is just a sock puppet for the Teleprompter of the United States, perhaps we should be more concerned about the origins of these teleprompters.

    Have the recent incidents involving the falling teleprompters been accidents as reported or perhaps something more? Where was the Secret Service team assigned to these teleprompters?

  • I listen to Lynn Samuels almost every day and I'm libertarian. She's not a 'kool-aid' drinker and thinks for herself without toting the party line. I wish there were more on both sides like her. My other favorite is Judge Napalatano (sp) on Fox.

  • No one shred of evidence!!! Well, here goes:

    Here is an itemized list of just some of Barack Obama's most recent actions since his inauguration:
    His first call to any head of state, as president, was to Mahmoud Abbas, leader of Fatah party in the Palestinian territory.
    # His first one-on-one television interview with any news organization was with Al Arabia television.
    His first executive order was to fund/facilitate abortion(s) not just here within the U. S., but within the world, using U. S. tax payer funds.
    # He ordered Guantanamo Bay closed and all military trials of detainees halted.
    He ordered overseas CIA interrogation centers closed.
    # He withdrew all charges against the masterminds behind the USS Cole and the "terror attack" on 9/11.
    Now we learn that he is allowing hundreds of thousands of Palestinian refuges to move to, and live in, the US at American taxpayer expense.

    These important, and insightful, issues are being "lost" in the blinding bail-outs and "stimulation" packages. See
    This is just a little info about WHO he has taken care of in his first 100 days.

    Further - There is conclusive and irrefutable evidence that the COLB image created and distributed by Obama's campaign to the Daily Kos, Annenberg's Factcheck, and the St. Pete Times, Politifact, is, unquestionably, a false identification document. Furthermore, there is conclusive and irrefutable evidence that the photos taken by Annenberg's Factcheck, in collusion with the Obama campaign, are themselves, false identification documents, having been made from the same false identification document image, as well as from additional false identification documents created for the same purpose; namely, to proffer these false identification documents as true reproductions of a genuine, Hawaii-issued and certified, "Certification of Live Birth" document, and thereby, intentionally deceive the American public into believing that Barack Hussein Obama is a natural-born citizen of the United States, and thereby, fully qualified to become their President.

    And this is JUST one. Obama is a usurper!

    You have GOT to be kidding me!

    Obama was born in 1961. Hawaii became a state in 1959. It had been a U.S. territory since the late 19th century.

    Did you people ever go to school?

  • Yep a change is coming, soon ppl will know who the usurper really is and its time is running out. Red flags for all you liberals, looks like a duck, walks like a duck its a usurper. Look it up. This country will make sweeping changes in place to make sure this monsterous mistake never happens again. God Bless America...

    Where've you been? The issue the person was referring to in the quote you commented on was that Obama's father was not a US citizen; he was from Kenya.

    Commentary on University Emails:

    For the BHO II Hawaiian Aug 4 1961 COLB to be accurate the following improbable events needed to occur:

    1 month after starting classes, Stanley Ann Dunham, Barack’s mom, at age 17, got pregnant by the only African man on the entire chain of Hawaiian islands.
    2 months after getting pregnant, she drops out of college.
    3 months after getting pregnant, she marries BHO Sr.
    10 months after her first day at the U of HI, she delivers BHO II and immediately leaves her parents, her new husband, and her home, to fly alone with a newborn 2800 miles to Seattle to start college at the U of W.
    Stanley Ann Dunham does not return to Hawaii until AFTER BHO Sr left the islands for Harvard.

    This is an implausible series of events made even more nefarious because Obama II in his 2 bio books never mentions his mom left Hawaii when she was married to BHO Sr, nor does he mention she was in Washington State during this time.
