Oh come on! Orioles’ Luke Scott thinks Obama’s birth certificate may be fake

Luke Scott

Luke Scott would like you to know that a.) Osama bin Laden is not really dead; b.) The Earth is flat; c.) The Bush administration blew up the Twin Towers; d.) President Obama’s birth certificate may be a fake. Please choose one. Or, what the hell, choose “all of the above” as if it makes any difference. No matter what you pick, it spells Laughing Academy valedictorian.

Sam Mellinger of the Kansas City Star talked with the Orioles’ Scott recently, and wrote about it in an article released Tuesday night. Let’s put on our tinfoil hats, set the amusement meter to “raucous” and take a look, shall we?

“(President Obama’s) birth certificate has yet to be validated,” [Scott] is saying.

“If they can counterfeit $100 bills, I think it’s a million times easier to counterfeit a birth certificate, if you ask me,” Scott says. “So, all it is, let’s just see if it’s real. Anybody can produce a document, so let’s check it out.”

An Orioles employee saw me talking to Scott to make it clear that the organization doesn’t endorse his views. They even asked him to only talk baseball on company time, and released public statements distancing themselves from Scott’s political opinions, something more teams are finding reason to do recently.

So basically, as Scott is talking, an Orioles PR guy is behind him shaking his head and holding up a sign that reads “Not really.”

That Scott is a notorious birther has been known for some time, but I’d assumed he’d retired this particular brand of crazy last week. But, nope.

When Scott says that anything is possible, however, I would tend to agree. If you put Scott, Darren Daulton and Brian Wilson in the same room and lock the door for a couple of hours, upon reentering, you’re likely to find a portal to another dimension, where up is down, Andy Dick is sober and this birther stuff makes sense.

By the way, if Scott ever makes reference to joining “The tea party,” this is what he means.

    It is absolutely a forgery. The photo of the “certified birth certificate” has no sign of a seal anywhere. If the HDOH gave Obama a certified copy, what Obama showed the world was NOT what they gave him but something else because a certified copy is required to have a seal on it.

      What, nothing in your comment about the Obama doubles or how the truth would cause race riots? That’s what’s on your blog! What a sad thing to dedicate your life to.

        My blog has nothing of what you said. My blog has evidence that the HDOH has known all along that Obama has no legally-valid birth record from Hawaii and has thus produced forgeries. The HDOH has already indirectly confirmed in 2 different ways that the Factcheck COLB (and now the long-form as well) is a forgery – because it doesn’t note a 2006 amendment and because the “date filed” and BC# are incompatible.

        In addition, former HDOH Director Fukino has said that Obama’s birth record was “half-typed, half-handwritten”. Gov Neil Abercrombie told his friend Mike Evans that there is no birth certificate for Obama in Hawaii and told a Star-Advertiser reporter that what Hawaii has is “actually written down” in the state archives – but implied that it wouldn’t convince anybody who “had a political agenda” or wasn’t “honest”.

        Obama himself argued in court that he shouldn’t have to disclose his birth certificate because it would be so “embarrassing”. He actually sent a decorated military surgeon to jail for 6 months rather than simply show this BC that is so terribly embarrassing. Somebody tell me what is embarrassing on the BC he presented. What is there that is worth destroying a military officer’s career over and sending him to jail for 6 months simply because he wanted to see this? Military officers take an oath to protect and defend the US Constitution from all enemies , both foreign and domestic; this issue is part of their JOB DESCRIPTION, according to their oath. Why couldn’t Obama present this BC in order to put at ease the consciences of every guy over in Iraq and Afghanistan who are putting their LIVES, marriages, and everything else they have on the line for this country?

        If what Obama has posted is a forgery he’s a criminal. If it’s not, he’s a POS for sending an honorable man trying to honor his oath to jail rather than disclosing a perfectly harmless BC. Take your pick, but the fact is that what Obama called a photo of a certified BC actually has no seal on it. You or I would NEVER get away with that crap.

        Aren’t ALL politicians criminals? And I suppose Bush wasn’t….lmao…..It’s funny how the Republicans keep digging for dirt on Obama and all they can come up with is a Birth Certificate issue…..you guys make Obama look better by the minute.

    Is Luke Scott a socialist? Why did he play for the Venezuelan league in 2005 knowing full well that the country’s leader Hugo Chavez is a socialist? Why would any American associate themselves with a know socialist dictator, let alone play baseball in a socialist dictatorship? Does Luke Scott have no moral standards? Should MLB allow baseball players who’ve played for baseball teams in dictatorships be allowed to play in the MLB?

    • jimnestea - Jun 19, 2011 at 5:42 PM

      He is clearly not a socialist because if he was he would support the socialist obama!

    Hey Luke….maybe you should be more focused on that lifetime .269 BA instead of worrying about a Birth Certificate ……This whole Birth Certificate issue makes me laugh….all it tells me is that nobody could find any dirt on Obama.

  4. spike036 - May 5, 2011 at 5:12 PM

    Regarding the seal on the BC…you can’t see it because the seal is embossed into the paper, they don’t use a stamp or sticker like they did back in the ‘olden’ days when you were born.

    • butterdezillion - May 5, 2011 at 7:25 PM

      Thanks for actually engaging with the content. =)

      My daughter’s death certificate had a seal that was impressed into the paper. I showed many photos of that certificate on my blog to show what a photo of a real seal would like. That gives a point of comparison. When you see what a photo of a seal is supposed to look like it really shows the problems with what Obama has presented.

      Dr Conspiracy and another person who conversed with me privately have questioned whether what Huffpost calls a “photo” is actually a scan. Could be; I don’t know. But if it is a scan it still leaves us with a situation where nobody has actually seen a raised seal on a piece of paper – which is the only way that we could know that what is on the paper is actually what the HDOH sent Obama.

      My boss commented how he tried getting his boys into kindergarten using a photocopy of a birth certificate showing the seal on it. That wouldn’t do; photocopies are not acceptable for proving something like that, because they can be easily manipulated. The raised seal on the actual paper is the DOH’s way of saying that these specific claims that are on this specific paper are certified as what they have in their records.

      Any school secretary in the country would have sent Obama back home if he had tried using that evidence to get into kindergarten. Yet the media accepted it as absolutely conclusive – even though he supposedly has a certified copy he could have shown just as easily as any of these non-conclusive copies – and ridicules those of us who note that these are not legally-acceptable proofs of anything. He has not shown anybody a document with a raised seal, which is the only legally-sufficient document there is.

      I will soon be posting another post at my blog showing that Obama’s counsel not only didn’t show an actual certified copy with a raised seal – he also actually lied by claiming that the “white copy” he distributed to the press was taken from the certified birth certificate, when in fact it could not have come directly from the certified birth certificate.

      Any thinking person should be asking why they have done this. Why have they lied about copying the certified birth certificate? Why not just REALLY copy it? Or even better yet – why not actually show the certified copy with the raised seal and allow it to be photographed or videotaped? I’m a lowly housewife and yet in 5 minutes I can figure out how to show that I’ve got a certificate with a raised seal. With all those lawyers and experts around, nobody could figure this out?

      Obama is all indignant that he had to show us anything. And what he showed us has the same legal value as Monopoly money. What contemp this guy has for both our intelligence and our right to be told the truth about his legal qualifications for the office he holds!

      Luke Scott is an athlete whose brains, honesty, and courage put our entire government and media to shame.

    He probably believes Obama’s Birth Certificate is a fake because it VERY OBVIOUSLY IS A FORGERY.

    Piles of evidence of Obama’s sophomoric forgery:

    Wow NBC and the Kansas City Star are completely liberal. I’m glad Luke Scott has brains and a mind of his own unlike many other athletes who just support obama because that’s what all of the other athletes are doing. He is probably right and I am still a Luke Scott fan.
    Go Luke!

    Luke Scott is 100% correct. If you LOVE paying for black people to have MULTIPLE babies and a president whose wife HATES white people, obama is your guy. I can’t WAIT for america to get taken over by China – things will go right then.
