    A left-wing blogger says one of Hillary Clinton’s top aides urged him in 2008 to write articles suggesting that then-Senator Barack Obama “was not a natural born citizen.” Larry Johnson, operator of the NoQuarter blog, described his cooperation with the aide, Sidney Blumenthal in September 2015.

    Donald Trump is right: It was the Hillary Clinton campaign that spread the rumor in 2008 that Obama was not born in America and, therefore, might not be eligible to serve as President. Hillary sent out her Chief Goon to take care of this high-priority matter. It was Sidney Blumenthal who spread the rumor. Remember him? The one who sent hundreds of wacky long-winded memos about Benghazi and the Middle East to the Secretary of State, including several that contained classified material. Well, before Sid was a fake spy and clandestine adviser to Hillary, he was her chief enforcer. Blumenthal...

    President Barack Obama made a joke with unfortunately bad timing Saturday, quipping that the Islamic State was no big deal compared to his birth certificate, only to have America hit by two separate explosions. While addressing a dinner held by the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation Saturday night, Obama joked about Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s recent declaration that Obama was, in fact, born in America. “I don’t know about you guys, but I am so relieved that the whole birther thing is over,” Obama said. “I mean, ISIL, North Korea, poverty, climate change, none of those things weighed on my...

    Now that he has come out and said (accurately) that President Obama is American-born, our corrupt media is still in a partisan frenzy to ensure Donald Trump answers for his Birtherism. At the same time, this very same media is just as desperate to ensure Hillary Clinton never answers for her role in inventing Birtherism. In order to accomplish this, the media is doing what it does best: lying and covering up. The media's lie is so grandiose and absurd, you have to laugh. Despite all the evidence and contemporaneous reporting (see below) that proves without question that, during their...

Kasich, who ended his own presidential bid in May and has not endorsed the Republican nominee, said he doesn't agree with questioning Obama's birthplace.

    The Hillary Clinton campaign moved Saturday to further distance itself from the re-ignited controversy about President Obama’s birthplace and long-time Clinton confidant Sidney Blumenthal, saying neither Clinton nor the 2008 campaign “ever” questioned the president’s citizenship. Donald Trump, Clinton’s Republican presidential rival, revived the so-called “birther” issue earlier this week when he declined to say definitively whether Obama is a U.S. citizen. The controversy gained momentum Friday when former McClatchy D.C. bureau chief James Asher tweeted that Blumenthal “told me in person” that Obama was born in Kenya. On Saturday, 2016 Clinton campaign spokesman Brian Fallon told Fox News: "As...

The decision is expected to be reviewed by Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno, who is New Jersey's secretary of state. One of the challenges was brought by three South Jersey citizens, and the other by a law professor who lives in...

    Donald Trump says he's not sure whether Marco Rubio is eligible for the presidency. And Rubio says it's just the latest in a line of Trump's "outrageous" comments designed to suck up media attention. Rubio is a U.S. citizen who was born in Miami. He is, in fact, eligible for the presidency -- even though his parents migrated from Cuba. But Trump stirred controversy on Saturday by retweeting a message suggesting that neither Rubio nor Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, who was born in Canada to a U.S. citizen mother, meet the constitutional requirements for the Oval Office....

    First it was President Barack Obama. Then it was Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas). Now, Donald Trump isn't sure whether Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) is eligible to be president. Rubio was born in Miami to immigrant parents. He is eligible to be president. In an interview on ABC's "This Week" Sunday morning, Trump played down the importance of his tweet -- but he left hanging in the air doubts about Rubio. "It was a retweet. ... I'm not really that familiar with Marco's circumstances," Trump said. "I mean, let people make their own determination," he added. Host George Stephanopoulos followed up,...

    To shed light on the Cruz birther issue, I researched the question: "Has a candidate NOT born in the US ever received electoral votes in a presidential election?" The answer is "yes." In the 1796 election, James Iredell, born in England, and Samuel Johnston, born in Scotland, both received electoral votes. I did not find evidence that these votes were invalidated by Congress, which they can do and have done; but I did not research that extensively. Links with evidence at post #1?

    Ted Cruz’ eligibility to be on at least one state’s ballot is going to get a court hearing. A Chicago judge is scheduled to hear arguments today in a lawsuit claiming Cruz can’t run for president because he’s not a "natural born citizen". Via USA Today (emphasis mine): Lawrence Joyce, an Illinois voter who has objected to Cruz’s placement on the Illinois primary ballot next month, will have his case heard in the Circuit Court of Cook County in Chicago. Joyce’s previous objection, made to the state’s Board of Elections, was dismissed on February 1. He appealed the decision and...
  • Ted Cruz Is In The US Senate Illegally (and not eligible for the presidency)

    US Senator Ted Cruz, from Texas, has been under fire in his bid for the White House due to his Canadian citizenship records which make it quite clear that he does not meet the Constitutional "natural born Citizen" requirement for the Oval Office, despite the opinion letter from his Harvard friends. Following a total lack of vetting on Barack Hussein Obama in 2008 and 2012, many insist that no one ever enter the Oval Office again without proper vetting, including proof of meeting all Constitutional requirements for office. Obama's massive destruction of our Constitutional Republic has placed the issue of...

    Dear Trump Supporters, You say you don't support Ted Cruz because he's a liar (even though he backs up everything he says) and plays dirty politics (like sabotaging Dr Carson's run in Iowa). The former has been dealt with every time it's brought up. I want to deal with the latter definitively. You say that Ted Cruz deliberately sabotaged Dr Carson in Iowa. However, it has been shown conclusively that Ted's team got the information from CNN who got the information from Dr Carson's team. If that hurt Dr Carson's results... show me one person who changed his vote because...
