Skip to comments.A conspiracy site with White House press credentials revives a debunked birther story
Posted on 03/10/2017 10:43:07 PM PST by Seizethecarp
On Thursday evening, precisely 49 days, five hours and 11 minutes after Barack Obama was no longer the president of the United States, the conspiracy-enthusiastic site Gateway Pundit posted a new story: "Breaking: Malik Obama Tweets Alleged Barack Obama Birth Certificate In Kenya" Gateway Pundit never met an anti-Obama or anti-Hillary-Clinton story that it didnt like. On any number of occasions, the sites articles have been demonstrably false, as collated by the liberal watchdog group Media Matters. Despite that or perhaps because of its ferocious defenses of then-candidate Donald Trump over the course of 2016 an employee of the site was recently granted credentials to join the White House press corps in the briefing room for daily administration briefings. The sites story about the new birth certificate was written by Jim Hoft, the founder of the site. Its little more than a write-up of a tweet from a man named Malik Obama, who is the half brother of the former president and who, over the course of the past year or two, came to embrace Trump and the online community that supported the Republican nominee for president.

For the record...
Regardless of the veracity of the story, the fact remains that the guy who calls himself Obama still hasn’t proved his identity enough to satisfy a liquor store clerk.
I have the SSN barry soetero uses...it was granted to a white man born in Connecticut in the 1890s. maybe I will post it..you can use federal websites, like the selective service, to verify it...he is an illegal alien using a fraudulent SSN.....
And so it begins........... again
Great, love it. Finally, put a stake thru the heart of this fake a..hole
The most dishonest, lying site on the Net. If Media Matters says it's false, you might want to consider that it's likely to be true.
Media Matters is owned by George Soros. You know, the Nazi collaborator. That is has credibility to liberals shows you where they are.
The Obama Administration released a forgery — something that is normally considered a crime.
Says Philip Bump, without displaying any evidence of self-knowledge, some guy who works as a correspondent for the disgraced Washington Post, a site that on any number of occasions has published articles that have been demonstrably false.
Gateway Pundit never met an anti-Obama or anti-Hillary-Clinton story that it didnt like.
Cough, cough - the disgraceful Washington Post has never met an anti-Bush or anti-Trump story that it didn't like.
Do these 'journalist' employees (such as Philip Bump) of fake corporate "news" outlets have a clue? Obviously not.
Why are you so bashful about publishing it?
If it belonged to a guy born in the 1890s, that guy is likely either dead and gone or a minor celebrity due to advanced age (in which case, you need a link).
If, as is almost certain, he's indeed dead and gone, that SSN should show up in the SSDI. Does it?
If not, you are FOS!
It is said he uses lots of different SSNs.
That Conn SSN he uses is very well known all over.
Doesn’t pass eVerify
He wasn’t born in Kenya. Red herring. He was born in Canada.
I have no idea where Obummer was born, Kenya, Washington, Hawaii or somewhere else.
But I’m 95% certain that his so-called “birth certificate” is a fake, a fraud, a forgery, just like the man himself.
He wasnt born in Kenya. Red herring. He was born in Canada.
Here we are after all these years, still guessing about the bonafides of someone who claimed to be qualified to be POTUS. It will turn out to be the most disgraceful chapter in the history of the U.S.
I never knew the WaaaaaaaaPo was so against fake news.....
True, but dredging up "birth certificates" that were discredited years ago does nothing to support that.
True, but dredging up “birth certificates” that were discredited years ago does nothing to support that.
I am not so sure. If President Obama had noting to hide, why did the White House put forward a birth certificate that was an obvious fraud?
The more time and energy the left takes to fight this story, the more it makes me consider that there is fire somewhere in all the birth certificate smoke.
A lot of people don't believe that. And presenting another obvious fraud of a birth certificate does nothing to make the case that he was born elsewhere.
Is the WaPo referring to itself, here? (Or maybe the NYT...)
