    My View of the World ^ | April 28, 2011 | James Willis
    President Obama has finally done something I approve of; he has produced his birth certificate. No, I don’t count myself as a ‘birther’, but I do believe they raised some legitimate concerns that could have been resolved a long time ago. I believe that we should adhere to all of the constitutional requirements for holding office regardless of which office that might be. While I have never been convinced that Obama was not born in the U.S., until he finally provided the official documentation, I had also not been convinced that he was born here. We basically had his word...

    – LAKE HAVASU CITY, Ariz. – Harvard University officials are speaking out on the release of the immigration file on Barack Hussein Obama, Sr. Documents uncovered through a Freedom of Information Act request to the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services, formerly known as the Immigration and Naturalization Service, show that Harvard University officials worked with the INS to deny Obama’s student visa extension. An INS investigator, M.F. McKeon, wrote on June 8, 1964: “They (Harvard officials) weren’t very impressed with him and asked us to hold up action on his application until they decided what action they could take...

    The lone Republican in the Hawaii State Senate told a radio interviewer today he believes "the real issue" stopping Barack Obama from releasing his long-form birth certificate is something the president has to hide, perhaps even the name of his actual birth father. Hawaii State Sen. Sam Slom further told the host of "Aaron Klein Investigative Radio" on WABC 770 AM in New York City that so long as Obama refuses to be transparent about his past, questions about the president's birth remain "a legitimate issue." "My particular point of view – and why I haven't identified myself as a...

    Democrats may be upset with all the questions about President Barack Obama’s birthplace, but some are starting to use the issue to their advantage. The Democratic Governors Association has sent a fundraising letter asking donors to give money to help stop bills requiring birth certificates for presidential candidates being considered in various red states,

    It's not specifically called a "birther" bill and it doesn't mention President Barack Obama by name, but proposed state legislation in Louisiana appears to be the latest attempt to keep alive arguments over whether Obama can prove he was born in the United States. The proposed Louisiana legislation would require an affidavit to accompany documents, including a birth certificate and a sworn statement that identifies the candidate's place of residence for the preceding 14 years, for someone to quality for the presidential ballot. Similar requirements are set for other offices including Congress. Bill co-sponsor state Sen. A.G. Crowe told CNN's...

    It's the conspiracy theory that won't go away. And it's forcing Republican officials and presidential contenders to pick sides: Do they think Barack Obama was born outside the United States and disqualified to be president? As the Republican candidates tiptoe through the mine field, Democrats are watching. They hope the debate will fire up their liberal base and perhaps tie the eventual GOP nominee to fringe beliefs that swing voters will reject.

    Why is the ludicrous birther conspiracy theory so widespread? A Public Policy Polling survey this week showed that 48 percent of Iowa Republicans don't believe President Obama was born in the United States. Donald Trump’s potential presidential candidacy has support despite — or maybe because of — his “asking questions” about the president’s actual birthplace. In May, WND Books will publish “Where's the Birth Certificate?,” which, as I write, is No. 2 on The author is Jerome Corsi, the man behind “Unfit for Command” and the “swiftboating” of John Kerry. The connection is important: “Birtherism” may be to the...

    WND ^ | 4/21/11 | Jerome R. Corsi
    This, the first of a series of articles on the Obama home at 5046 S. Greenwood, establishes that three individuals other than Obama are listed in public records as owners and taxpayers on the property. Barack Obama is not among at least three people listed as current owners and taxpayers of the mansion his family calls home in Chicago's upscale Kenwood neighborhood, according to public records. WND reported in December 2008 that William Miceli, the attorney for convicted political operative Tony Rezko and a fundraiser for Obama, owns the Obama home at 5046 S. Greenwood.

    HARRISBURG -- State legislation requiring presidential candidates to prove they are natural-born citizens is a political effort aimed at President Obama, a Philadelphia Democrat said today. Rep. Babette Josephs, ranking Democrat on the House State Government Committee, said the bill by Rep. Daryl Metcalfe, R-Cranberry, the committee chairman, isn't needed since Obama says he is an American citizen and has produced documentation. "I believe him myself," said Josephs, who as the chair last session blocked the bill from being considered. Metcalfe has 28 co-sponsors for the bill he said was initiated "in light of the controversy regarding citizenship and public...

    "He also told me something that I never forgot, for it caused me to do some other things in an effort to be nice to him and possibly a favor. We spoke of where I had been and the world as I saw it. I told him I had been to Africa , Mombassa specifically, and he said to me abruptly, “I was born there.” In the light of what is called “The Birther” movement, these memories are still foremost in my mind concerning this. While I cannot swear it was Barak Obama, all the details I do remember of...

    With his rise in popularity Donald Trump has now started to have to defend himself against Republicans who think that his focus on the birther issue is going to hurt the party. This includes Karl Rove, who recently called Trump a "joke candidate." Now you can add former RNC chairman Michael Steele, who appeared on Hardball last night and dismissed the birther issue as "silly," to that list. "Rank and file Republicans don't give a rat's giblet let about the birther issue."

    Michele Bachmann is totally wrong about the eligibility issue. Clearly she does not realize how serious this issue is. She says she takes the President's word on this issue. The Constitution requires the President to be a natural-born Citizen-not just anyone claiming to be born in Hawaii. This issue should have been investigated and resolved by Congress, before he was sworn in-Not by a clerk in Hawaii.

    Trump slams Rove! Carl Rove called Trump's candidacy a "joke" among many other disparaging remarks about him. But Trump, in his inimitable way, gave it right back. Who really is Rove? He's the "architect" who encouraged George Bush to spend like a liberal Democrat and pursue his amnesty for illegal aliens agenda to pander to the Hispanic vote. He caustically stated that Palin was too much a lightweight for national office. His counsel made Bush so unpopular that he alienated not only the conservative GOP base but the Independents, thus helping Obama win the presidency. Fox has Rove as a...
