Trump claims Obama birth certificate 'missing'
CNN Anderson Cooper 360 ^ | 4-26-2011 | Anderson Cooper

Posted on 04/26/2011 10:13:46 PM PDT by Texas Fossil

(CNN) – Real estate mogul Donald Trump's latest claim about President Obama's birth certificate is that it's missing.

"Well I've been told very recently, Anderson, that the birth certificate is missing," Trump told CNN's Anderson Cooper Monday. "I've been told that it's not there or it doesn't exist. And if that's the case it's a big problem."

he said that the power elite were (then) going to take a ‘wait and see’ approach to Obama’s election but if he went too far, they would take him down.

Shades of the Clint Murchison meeting in Dallas 1963...lol

I’ll only go with life long torture if the US can sell tickets to that ‘Zoo” (to help pay off the Trillions of debt they caused) and we get to pretend we are monkeys and throw crap at them ;)

Nobody seems to remember that Joseph Farah offered a $10,000 cash prize to ANYONE who could prove they were present at or near (a nurse, etc.) the birth of Obama in Hawaii.

NOBODY has claimed the prize.

Seeing Barry Mills and Tyler Bingham unleashed on the treasonous cabal would be entertaining in its self.

"They actually interviewed a random lady with a foreign accent who beleived that she saw a "black" baby in the hospital around the time of Obama's birth."

A black baby in the hospital? In Hawaii? Most of the people in Hawaii are darker than Obama and this woman says she saw a "black" baby? LOL! This isn't Howard Dean's home in Vermont. It's Hawaii.

That’s why I think these fools are ALL fighting this so hard. That result would be the ‘best’ they could hope for. The actual Constitutional penalty ain’t so “forgiving.”

Ill bet we are about to see a flood of people claiming this and similar. Just out of the clear blue sky....

And I bet that Dem cash ‘suddenly refreshed’ their memories.

I think it’s also time for La and TX to issue drilling permits to the oil companies and dare the Fed to stop them. Two can play the stop me game.

Someone better. They (BO and Co.) are so out of control that flat defiance is the only rational way to deal with them. Wish I was Gov. of a state. I’d have my meals delivered to the courtroom for the duration of my term in office. I actually LIKE arguing with idiots ;)

Obambi in cuffs would be the best US economic stimulus since Bush’s tax cuts. I would expect to literally hear screams of joy and relief throughout my community. ROTUS Obambi is 100% fraud and I knew it the first time I watched his lips move, I just felt the lies pouring from him. It’s well past time this American Political Hijacking gets turned around on them. The SLIME Media should be dismantled and rebuilt 100% from scratch for their treachery and treason in this matter beginning in 2007.

I’m thinking RICO. I can think of no greater racket or corrupt Org, well except FedGov.

Kidding aside, the media has to be fixed. As it stands it’s nothing but the propaganda wing of the DNC and it ain’t going to get better.

The way they operate is pure politics. They need to be held financially and criminally accountable for everything they do.

Personally, I think that businesses should just abandon the MSM as an ad venue and kill it off that way. The internet is killing them (print) and even /tv is taking a hit as it is now.

FBI background checks on all Editors and reporters should be the law. It is proven that they are a determent to national security, so why the hell not? They have shown that they can’t be trusted.

Don’t be an idiot. Obama is the one who needs to show a Birth Certificate.

When you’re stopped by the traffic police, do you say “prove I don’t have a driving license?”.

No. It works the other way round. The burden of proof is on the occupant of the White House.

That the BC is missing has been stated before this by others, including the Governor of Hawaii. Why is Trump getting such kudos for restating it after his own private “investigation”??

Just keep the pressure up....across the board. Sooner or later he will have to cave, especially if the opposition can begin to garner enough momentum leading to questions. There was a poll that 45% of GOP do not believe (.) was born in the US. If we can get that beyond the GOP and into a significant part of the independants, the great fraud will either have to pony up or quit. Don’t let the RINOs and their cohorts the dem humps dismiss this out of hand because they are afraid of upending the apple cart by forcing him to bring it forth. This is a matter of interest, and Issa long ago could have issued a subpeona as the doubts are causing a question of the proper operations of government but alas he won’t becaume bonehead will quash the subpeona even were he inclined to issue one. BTW, the onus is not to prove he has a birth certificate, he needs one that shows he is a natural born citizen. Beyond that, any info that shows his “books” were false would be a bonus. Anything that shows he obtained scholarships as a foreign national would be over the top. There is no downside, even if he comes up with one now, not later, because we could then move on to substantive issues. But, IMO, if it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it is a duck.

and whoever confirmed Obama’s eligibility without verification

Nancy Pelosi and the National Dem Party officials, knowingly certified BHO without evidence after the HI official in charge of certification "refused" to certify him.

They won't abandon them unless viewers abandon them in larger numbers. News Corp/Fox is doing a good job of driving me away though - with the sleaze they push on Fox News at times, and with Fox promoting the homosexual agenda among children with it's "Glee" crap, I'm done with anything the Murdochs control.

FBI background checks on all Editors and reporters should be the law.

Are you saying that if somebody wants to be a reporter at Fox News or ABC or CNN, they have to be approved by the FBI first? My God, I've been to countries where the government has that kind of control over the media, and I have no desire to ever see that kind of government control over the media here in the US, because that kind of control leads to even more control over citizens, or should I say subjects.

Really, every few days some jerk rises their ugly head on FR. And that would be you.

Trump is the one that is implying that he ‘knows’ things etc. Generally that’s followed by some evidence and not just rhetoric.

No, I’m saying they should get the same FBI background check that someone working for a bank, security company or anyone working with sensitive info/technology gets. The kind that exposes divided loyalties to other countries and criminal/radical associations.

It is then up to the owners of the company to hire the person.

By your name I assume you are retired Air Force? You had bkg checks for security clearances and such right? That’s what I am saying.

Yes, I am retired and fully aware of what background checks involve, which is why I think it's foolish to even try and apply such standards to the media, especially given the expenses involved and how many federal security-related resources would be tied up by such actions.

Are you going to force the airheads on Fox and Friends to go through background checks, since they are ostensibly reporting the news at times, or at least pretending to?

Are you going to require background checks on a small newspaper whose biggest story of the week is that Edna Mae fell asleep while driving to her 85th birthday party and ran over a few mailboxes and Jimmy Joe Johnson's huntin' dog?

Are you going to require background checks on the 100s of thousands of bloggers and the millions of people who post on forums like Free Republic? After all, they can report on breaking news, and some in Congress want to treat blogs and forums like the media.

Putting aside the logistical, financial, and potential Constitutional problems with your background checks, I'd like to also address the point you made about how these background checks would expose loyalties. I'm going to clue you in on a big secret: These people are hired because of their loyalties or they are hired because of ratings.

Their employers are hiring them because they either have the same worldview or because they bring in ratings, in which case they don't care about loyalties, and an FBI background check is not going to be nearly as important as a check of the ratings.

I also don't think we need FBI background checks to tell us that MSNBC is pushing a very liberal agenda or that the Fox Network is promoting homosexuality among kids with its TV shows or that CNN goes easy on Obama in most of its questions or that there have been favorable stories on CNBC about the Chinese buying up more and more in the US or how great it is that Wal-Mart continues to import more and more from China because it gives poor people the chance to buy cheap crap, while sending American dollars to a communist country.

Oh, and such checks could easily be abused by an administration. Just imagine the Clintons during all of the Lewinsky stuff being able to force Fox News or Drudge's staff to go through heavy background checks, tying up private and federal resources, and being used as an tools of intimidation. Just imagine that since Freepers sometimes beat the MSM to news stories, if they decided FR should be investigated.

You must always look at how such actions could be abused by the other side, because they will be abused. We are much better off if the government were to shrink rather than grow in scope and power under your background checking scheme.
