Posted on 05/25/2012 6:12:18 PM PDT by James Thomas
In an interview with The Daily Beast Friday, real estate mogul and Mitt Romney surrogate Donald Trump doubled-down on his fact-challenged claim that President Obama was not born in the U.S. a claim that the Romney presidential campaign, currently raffling off a dinner with Trump and Romney to raise money for the campaign, made no effort to condemn.

THANK YOU...THANK YOU useful idiots are necessary for me to be re-electeds... s/Barack
Sounds like a good plan to me. The American people respect Trump and the truth about Obungas non US background will resonate coming from him.
Respectfully, I disagree that Americans respect Donald Trump. He has a successful TV show, but he’s a circus....successful, yes, but not respected.
NOBODY wants this sociopath out of the Oval Office more than me, but the birth certificate issue is a loser for us mostly because it will take years in the courts to judge this. We have to focus on economy, jobs, national security and his dangerous foreign policies...hammer those and this butt wipe will lose in a landslide.
What do you think?
Obama Camp to Romney: Ditch Trump!
The Obama campaign has had enough of Donald Trump and his birther nonsense. The President’s campaign spokesman, Ben LaBolt, called on Mitt Romney to ditch the Donald once and for all. “Donald Trump has become the birther in chief,” said LaBolt. “I can put the president’s birth certificate on my forehead and Mr. Trump wouldn’t accept that the president was born in the United States. And it raises a question that’s come up before during this campaign as to whether Governor Romney will embrace the extreme voices in his party or stand up to them.”

What is ABC?
Hell yes! Go Obama! 4 more years!
. . . of “birther” nonsense. Can you imagine Obama even lasting 1 year of the next 4? Critical mass would be reached and he’d be dragged out of the Mud Hut in shackles. Oops?
Imagine the nerve of some skinny little wetback like Obama actually having the balls to run for president. . and he actually won. Of course he had to take the oath of office a second time - with no cameras. I’ll betcha he swore on a Koran the second time.
I can’t wait for the book.
Thanks for ping, Brown Deer.
I saw Ed on CNN going nuts on this issue re Trump’s correctly stating the obvious (for most of us).
Gloria Borger then was seen interviewing some Milk Toast Romney spokesguy who said Romney believes Obama was born in Hawaii.
That’s OK, let Trump do the dirty work for Romney.
Meanwhile, good news in that Mario Appuzzo’s appeal in NJ Circuit Court is set for ORAL arguments in open court WED at 1PM.
Mitt needs to stay above the fray.....economy, jobs, taxes...let Trump and others beat on the commie....
That right there is pretty amazing! If the court wanted the bury the appeal they would NOT invite a “media circus” by giving Apuzzo a new platform to educate the media and public regarding the NBC issue.
The other suit that is promising is Larry Klayman’s ballot challenge in Florida. His plaintiff is a Democrat. Apuzzo has one Dem and one REP.
Seriously, now -- do you think you'll ever get to vote for anyone else after you help give Obummer a second term? His government by executive fiat and administrative orders don't need no stinkin' elections!
If you don't believe me, just ask his Presency.
US Senate race Cali. Lib DiFi is considered safe... Most likely opponent Orly Taitz... This will be interesting... What if during the heat of summer, `it` is proven by Sheriff Joe...
Yes it is good news. Someone on the thread wondered why Romney wouldn't respond if there were eligibility questions. The obvioius answer is that mainstream republican senators all signed SenRes 511 in April of 2008 to give thier guy McCain an chance to run, even though he was never ruled eligible. In the hearings, on the record, they all agreed with Judge and HSA Director Michael Chertoff who said:
My assumption and my understanding is that if you are born of American parents, you are naturally a natural-born American citizen, Chertoff replied. That is mine, too, said Leahy.
I know you could cite this from memory Mr. Carp, but there are many still being confused by the clever Obots who now mostly change the subject when the issue of eligibility is raised. They assume the problem is with a birth certificate, when the problem is constitutional eligibility. As Chertoff, and every US Senator agreed, a natural born citizen must have been born to citizen parents. Barack never claimed to be natural born. He told us he was a naturalized citizen, using the legal language “I am a native-born citizen of the US.” That is the language of the 14th Amendment. Slaves were native born, but not citizens before the 14th Amendment. They were made citizens, thus their children, born on our soil, were natural born citizens. Barack’s father was never a citizen.
Mario Apuzzo and Leo Donofrio are effectively the best informed legal scholars on natural born citizenship. There certainly are many law professors who know, including Obama’s own Larry Tribe, who slickly avoids the issue in his letter to help whitewash McCaini’s ineligibility, after Obama and McCaskill failed to win passage of their SB 2678, Children of Military Families Natural Born Citizen Act, filed Feb 28, 2008.
Obama wants you all to look at the right hand. He wants you to wonder about missing dates, about Photoshop layers, about publishers, about anything that cannot be proved so that the incontravertable truth, supported by dozens of Supreme Court cases, by founders, by framers, by legal scholars, by presidents, by five Chief Justices of the Supreme Court, and by the entire us Senate after the Senate Judiciary committe, will not be discussed. He wants you discussing religous doctrine, responding to taunts and name calling, rather than ferreting the truth. He needed some time to scrub historical docments, and, as in New York, change the printed qualifications for the presidency to admit the son of an alien, born a British Subject by his own admission, because the three amendment attempts by John Conyers didn't succeed. Every lawyer has read the words of John Bingham, author of the 14th Amendment, "...of parents not owing allegiance to any foreign sovereignty."
Pundits are afraid. Republicans assume you are not literate enough to understand, and are complicit themselves. They might as well benefit if they think Rubio, not natural born, will get them some Hispanic votes. Obama is rewriting the Constitution to accomodate his ineligiblity, which will mean nothing when he is finished, and neither will the Constitution.
My wife had said throughout the primaries that Romney was ruthless and that's what she wanted in a candidate---but one who was sneaky, where nothing sticks to him. It appears she's right.
Citizen: I see the kings genitals, he has no clothes!
Tapper: These peons are not smart enough to see his clothes.
Stopped by a rural grocery store the other day. The owner/chatterbox was once a very active member of the D party (as were her many, many relatives) She was informing another customer of BO muslim heritage and the millions of dollars he’d spent to keep from showing his BC. Knowing that she would “tell her world” better than any MSM I contributed to her knowledge......Forget about the “tella=vision”, tella-Stella” gets the message out.
Keep sending the material to THE GLOBE, it’s targeting BO’s base. ;~)
As a FL resident, I tossed Klayman’s FL effort some $$...
As I see it, US birth location and having unitary parental US citizenship at birth are two EQUAL provisions of Article TWO, as defined in Minor v. Happersett.
Apuzzo’s case is a clean NBC parental ineligibility challenge based on Barry's publicly declared narrative and not a challenge to his birth location.
Arpaio’s investigation goes to the evident forgery of Barry's BC which calls into question BOTH his birth location and parents as neither can be established without a reliable BC.
Corsi claims in his video from HI this past Thursday that new evidence has been found showing that INS was calling into question BHO Sr. being the father of Barry at his birth and buttressing a case for Frank Marshal Davis as the father followed by booting Stanley Ann off to Kenya to avoid a scandal implicating FM Davis, a key KGB operative.
Remember that the 1948 BNA does not pass UK citizenship to children of a bigamous union, such as BHO Srs bigamous liaison with Stanley Ann.
If Barry's dad is FM Davis and his mom is Stanley Ann he is at a minimum a citizen at birth but would not be NBC if born in Kenya, IMO. Now the Obama legal team claims that the Marguet-Pillado case would make Barry NBC even if he was born in Kenya whether or not his parents were married and regardless of who the father was (UK subject BHO Sr. or US citizen FM Davis)
Obama’s friends and business associates have always thought he was borne in Kenya but we are stupid for ever suspecting as much.
