I have been willing, as have a majority of Americans, to accept the State of Hawaii's good faith in issuing that birth certificate.
Our blog buddy Rex sees some problems with it, and he's a pretty smart geek.
Now Sheriff Joe Arapiao of Maricopa County, Airzona has launched an investigation and says that he believes it might be a forgery.
Now how a county sheriff in Arizona is going to investigate the government of another state is problematical to say the least. Sheriff Joe did indicate that he might seek the help of congress.
Now our own Congressman John Fleming is posting articles on Facebook linking to World Net Daily about the investigation. (Here and here).
A number of other congressmen have expressed doubts about the authenticity of the birth certificate.
As I said, I accept that Barack Obama was born in Hawaii. I accept the word of the State of Hawaii.
That being said, I certainly have no objection to a total airing out of this in an attempt to arrive at a definitive conclusion, once and for all.
If Congressman Fleming and his colleagues believe that the birth certificate is a forgery, then it is incumbent upon them to do some things.
- Immediately call for an investigation of the State of Hawaii officials who produced this document and then certified that it is a copy of an original.
- Immediately file Articles of Impeachment against the President of the United States for fraud and conspiracy, because if you believe that the birth certificate is a fraud then certainly the president was a perpetrator of that fraud.
