  • Who was the first 'birther'?

    Exclusive: Joseph Farah reviews Obama eligibility issue to mark ex-president's purported birthday Donald Trump was hardly the first "birther." Neither was I. Nor was my colleague Jerome Corsi. And neither was Hillary Clinton. That honor belongs to one person and one person alone – Barack Obama. We all followed suit, but were not the first to raise it. Obama went to extreme lengths to conceal his past. And, indeed, if he was born in the U.S. and was eligible to serve as president, he certainly did his best to create the mystery that led to the question being asked. Years...

    Andrea Mitchell (Andrea Mitchell Reports, MSNBC) discusses the origins of 'The Birther Movement' with Ben Smith (Politico Sr. Political writer) in 2013. Ben Smith traces 'The Birther Movement' to Hillary Clinton supporters when she was losing to Barack Obama in 2008. Andrea Mitchell appears somewhat flustered and shaken by this revelation and tries to tie it to Donald Trump and Republicans. "Ben Smith, thank you so much, from Politico for...reminding us of where this all started". (She doesn't appear all that thankful). Don't just save the link.

    Upon reading special counsel John Durham’s 27-page indictment of attorney Michael Sussman, I found myself asking, “Is there anything Perkins Coie lawyers would not do to keep their Democratic clients in power?” Thanks to Durham, we know they launched a cyberwar against candidate Donald Trump that makes their work on the Steele dossier seem half-hearted. What we need to know is whether their work in producing Barack Obama’s birth certificate was any more legit than these other misadventures. As to Sussman, he stands accused of lying to the FBI, “to wit, on or about September 19, 2016, the defendant stated...
  • Obama Trolls President Trump Over “Birther” Issue: ‘I Was Able to Get Away with’ Not Being Born in the US

    Barack Obama trolled President Trump over the “birther” issue during an appearance on “The Daily Show” with Trevor Noah on Monday evening. Back in 2007 Hillary Clinton and her campaign circulated a memo promoting Barack Obama’s “lack of American roots” and reportedly began the “birther controversy.” “[Barack Obama’s] roots to American values and culture are at best limited,” the memo says. “I cannot imagine America electing a president during a time of war who is not at his center fundamentally American in his thinking and values.” Americans became suspicious after then-candidate Obama, who claimed he was born in Hawaii, refused...

    (Aug. 21, 2020) — At approximately the 20-minute mark in his weekly update from August 14, Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton touched on questions arising last week after former Vice President Joseph Biden announced California U.S. Senator Kamala Harris as his running mate in the November 3 presidential election. Judicial Watch is a self-described “conservative” non-profit organization which frequently takes federal and local agencies to court over their refusal or failure to release government documents requested under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). The question of constitutional “eligibility” has become a subject which many in the mainstream media ridicule and...

    Newsweak ^ | 8/12/20 | JOHN C. EASTMAN
    The fact that Senator Kamala Harris has just been named the vice presidential running mate for presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden has some questioning her eligibility for the position. The 12th Amendment provides that "no person constitutionally ineligible to the office of President shall be eligible to that of Vice-President of the United States." And Article II of the Constitution specifies that "[n]o person except a natural born citizen...shall be eligible to the office of President." Her father was (and is) a Jamaican national, her mother was from India, and neither was a naturalized U.S. citizen at the time...

    "Donald Trump's campaign lawyer promotes 'birther' conspiracy theory that Kamala Harris is NOT eligible to be VP because her parents were immigrants". The Trump campaign's Senior Legal Advisor Jenna Ellis pushed a so-called 'birther' narrative Thursday that Kamala Harris isn't eligible to be vice president because her parents weren't citizens when she was born in Oakland, California. 'It's an open question, and one I think Harris should answer so the American people know for sure she is eligible,' Ellis told ABC News. Ellis' views on the issue came to light after she retweeted a link to a 'birther' op-ed published...
  • Believing conspiracy theories might make you a criminal: study

    Go figure: If you’re a birther or a 9/11 denier, chances are you aren’t much fun to be around. Sure, we’ve been saying this about our wack-job uncle for years — but now it’s backed up by science. With contemporary conspiracy theories targeting everything from myths surrounding the Mueller report to the chilling “secret” behind Disney’s “Frozen,” this cultural phenomenon is certainly ripe for clinical exploration. As such, the new study measured participants’ “belief in general notions of conspiracy” as well as how much they agreed with specific theories (“There was an official campaign by MI6 to assassinate Princess Diana”)....

    AND WHERE ARE YOU NOW? by Sharon Rondeau (Feb. 24, 2019) — Directly after Democrats won the majority in the U.S. House of Representatives in November, then-minority leader and Speaker-“Designate” Nancy Pelosi began invoking the U.S. Constitution and her pledge that she would promote a vision of “E Pluribus Unum,” “checks and balances” and “accountability,” among other attributes, in the 116th Congress. She praised America’s Founding Fathers for their “vision” and quest for “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.” Further, she maintained that “We as Democrats are here to strengthen the institution in which we serve and not to...

    Conservative writer and conspiracy theorist Jerome Corsi is in plea negotiations with special counsel Robert S. Mueller III, according to Corsi and another person with knowledge of the talks. The talks with Corsi — an associate of both President Trump and GOP operative Roger Stone — could bring Mueller’s team closer to determining whether Trump or his advisers were linked to WikiLeaks’ release of hacked Democratic emails in 2016, a key part of his long-running inquiry. Corsi provided research on Democratic figures during the campaign to Stone, a longtime Trump adviser. For months, the special counsel has been scrutinizing Stone’s...

    Former First Lady Michelle Obama reveals in her upcoming memoir that she vowed never to forgive President Donald Trump for questioning her husband’s birth certificate. “Donald Trump, with his loud and reckless innuendos, was putting my family’s safety at risk. And for this I’d never forgive him,” she wrote in her book, according to the Washington Post. Trump famously challenged Obama’s birth certificate until the president released a copy of his long-form document in April 2011 at a press conference.

    Former first lady Michelle Obama says she can never forgive President Donald Trump for spreading rumors that her husband was not born in America, according to excerpts from her upcoming book that was obtained by The Washington Post. In her new memoir, "Becoming," Obama reportedly derides the so-called "birther" conspiracy as thinly-veiled racism. “The whole thing was crazy and mean-spirited, of course, its underlying bigotry and xenophobia hardly concealed,” reads an excerpt, according to the report. “But it was also dangerous, deliberately meant to stir up the wingnuts and kooks.”
  • Senator Kamala Harris Not a Natural Born Citizen of USA to Constitutional Standards

    Scribd ^ | 8/11/2018 | Charles F. Kerchner, Jr.
    Senator Kamala Harris’s staff has refused to answer any questions regarding the citizenship status of her parents when she was born. The normal path to becoming a naturalized U.S. Citizen takes five years. Kamala Harris was born in 1964. Her father emigrated from Jamaica to the USA in 1961. Her mother emigrated from India to the USA in 1960. Thus there was not sufficient time for either of Kamala’s parents to become naturalized U.S. Citizens. Kamala’s father eventually became a naturalized U.S. Citizen per his bio. It is not known at this time if Kamala’s mother ever became a naturalized...

    On Saturday former 2008, 2012 and 2016 presidential candidate Cody Robert Judy sent by fax a “Proposed Executive Order” declaring Barack Hussein Obama “Unqualified and a Usurper of the Office Of the President under the Constitution of the United States of America.” The “Executive Order” is addressed to “President Donald Trump” at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW in Washington, DC, the address of the White House. Written from the hypothetical signer’s point of reference, the document text invokes “National Security and Election Integrity” as at the forefront of determining presidential eligibility. Judy first challenged Obama’s eligibility in 2008, when he filed...

    Why do so many Americans still believe Barack Obama was born in Kenya? Maybe because he keeps insisting it's so. He did again last week, while visiting his ancestral homeland of Kogelo. Participating in the opening of Sauti Kuu Resource Center, a youth facility built by his half-sister, Auma Obama, he said: "Now, three years ago, I visited Kenya as the first sitting American president to come from Kenya. When I was president it was a little bit harder to get up here cause my plane didn't fit the tarmac up here." "While three years ago my sister Auma introduced...

    Melania Trump deserves no sympathy during scandals concerning the Trump administration because she is a birther, according to The View co-host Joy Behar. The comments were made on Wednesday’s broadcast of the show while the panel was discussing the recent scandal involving Donald Trump and porn star Stormy Daniels. Daniels and the president are engaged in a current legal battle over an alleged affair. The segment opened with the hosts roundly supporting Melania Trump and what she may be going through with her husband, saying the matter should be kept private. The panel called the First Lady “lovely” and “a...
