    WND has learned that a news conference has been scheduled for Dec. 15 to make public the final conclusions of the investigation by the Cold Case Posse in Arizonaís Maricopa County under Sheriff Joe Arpaio, who was defeated Nov. 8 in his bid for a seventh term. On Wednesday, the PPSIMMONS blog, affiliated with author, pastor and radio host Carl Gallups, reported Arpaio had been planning to announce the news conference on a Phoenix television station, but the interview was postponed. Gallups confirmed, however, that a press conference regarding the birth certificate has been scheduled for Dec. 15 at 4...

    For nine years Free Republic has featured many articles and endless speculations about the junior Senator from Illinois who was the Democrat Party Presidential candidate in 2008. He never produced a genuine birth certificate from Hawaii which should have been a definite giveaway that he was not born in the United States. No one has been willing to challenge this man even though is has been obvious the past three years that whoever is occupying the Oval Office, a jolly man with yellowish fine-grained skin and rosy pink lips, is not the malignant narcissist with purple-lips elected in 2008 or...

    Result: Total meltdown. We told you on Friday about how and why the media suddenly decided to return to the Obama birther story. It wasnít because it suddenly became relevant again. It wasnít because Trump brought it up. And it certainly wasnít because any new information came to light. The media suddenly started asking Trump about this again for one reason and one reason only: Trump is soaring in the polls and theyíre panicking, looking for a way to save Hillary. So they decided to bring back to life one issue that they were sure they could hang on Trump...

    Posted September 16th, 2016 @ 11:01am in #Trump #Clinton #Birther Moments ago, Donald Trump acknowledged that Barack Obama was born in the United States. You all know thatís a big deal because Trump was the leader of the so-called ďbirtherĒ movement, which critics called racist. But watch the festival of cognitive dissonance that happens today among Trumpís critics and the media. They need to explain why the birther thing was racist. What exactly is the reasoning for that connection? Jake Tapper says the connection between the birther movement and racism is so obvious that you would have to be ďnaiveĒ...

    So It wasn't actually Hillary in 2008 that started the birther controversy, but Obama himself in 1991 that started it all. this was published by his literary agent in 1991, but why would someone born in America even try to claim that he was born in Africa? Three Words: " Coming to America " The film released in 1989 started the "Cultural Meme" of the "Exotic African coming to America and doing great things". Obama simply lied about himself and his origins for his own personal selfish reasons. Why just claim to be a run of the mill American who...

    On Thursday night, Donald Trump finally acknowledged an obvious, proven fact: President Obama was born in the United States. Or, rather, Trump's campaign said that he acknowledged it, in a statement that was itself riddled with falsehoods. "Hillary Clintonís campaign first raised this issue to smear then-candidate Barack Obama in her very nasty, failed 2008 campaign for President," the statement begins. That's untrue ó and it's been fact-checked any number of times. In 2011, Politico outlined the origins; in May, our fact checkers dubbed it ridiculous. "This type of vicious and conniving behavior is straight from the Clinton Playbook. As...

"So, he believes President Obama was born here," Conway said of Trump, quickly pivoting to an argument about Obama's performance in office. That's a smart pivot by Conway!

Corey Lewandowski, now a CNN contributor, remarked on the issue during a panel discussion on the network about Obama's criticism of Trump, the Republican presidential nominee. "The question was, did he get in as a U.S. citizen or was he brought into Harvard University as a citizen who wasn't from this country? I don't know the answer," he said. Lewandowski said earlier that Obama was "fair game" for attacks if he continued to rip Trump. Political commentator Angela Rye interjected that...

    In the birther movement, Mr. Trump recognized an opportunity to connect with the electorate over an issue many considered taboo: the discomfort, in some quarters of American society, with the election of the nationís first black president. He harnessed it for political gain, beginning his connection with the largely white Republican base that, in his 2016 campaign, helped clinch his partyís nomination. The more Mr. Trump questioned the legitimacy of Mr. Obamaís presidency, the better he performed in the early polls of the 2012 Republican field, springing from fifth place to a virtual tie for first. That frenzied period culminated...

    A Utah lawyer has appealed a lawsuit to the U.S. Supreme Court, alleging Republican presidential candidate Texas Sen. Ted Cruz is not a "natural born citizen" and therefore ineligible to become president. Legal scholars say there is virtually no chance the high court will consider the appeal, partly because they do not want to encourage a wave of similar suits. Cruz has faced questions about his eligibility to become president from his chief rival, Donald Trump. Cruz was born in Canada, though his mother is a U.S. citizen. The U.S. Constitution sets only a few standards for presidential eligibility. Candidates...

    A case challenging the eligibility of Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio to run for president will be heard in Broward County court at 11 a.m. Friday. The crux of the case: the meaning of the phrase "natural born citizen" and how it applies to the two Republican senators. Rubio was born in Miami in 1971 to Cuban immigrants who became citizens a few years later. Cruz was born in Canada to a Cuban-born father and American mother, who moved to Texas when Cruz was four. "These two candidates are naturalized U.S. citizens, or at the very least, simply fail to...

    This is one of the most difficult posts I have ever had to write. I had naively hoped that this election cycle, I would be treated to a substantive contest between a spate of highly accomplished two-term conservative governors, and Senators of great rhetorical skill acting as the ideological conscience of the bunch. As the primary wore on through the summer of 2015, it became clear that the GOP electorate was not interested in governors of accomplishment, but I still had hope for a final contest between two of my favorite Senators: Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio. I hoped to...

    The U.S. Constitution prohibits anyone except a "natural born citizen" from becoming President, though legal experts disagree as to whether or not that means they need to be born in the United States or simply be an American citizen at birth. Though they may quibble on the definition, most Americans don't think this long-standing rule should be changed to allow naturalized citizens to inhabit the Oval Office. According to a CBS News poll released Sunday, while 21% of Americans would favor changing the Constitution to allow people who aren't natural born U.S. citizens to become President, 75% would oppose such...

    GOP presidential candidate Ted Cruz should recuse himself in any future Senate Judiciary Committee vote on a nominee to replace Antonin Scalia, according to a law professor’s op-ed. Cruz has a conflict of interest because of questions surrounding his eligibility to serve as president, according to the CNN op-ed by Northwestern University law professor Steven Lubet. Cruz is the only remaining GOP presidential contender with a seat on the committee.

    The words natural born citizen, and their original meaning at the time that this constitutional clause was crafted, go a long way to answering this question. In founding-era America, like today, a person could be a citizen by virtue of birth on American territory; a citizen by virtue of a statute that granted citizenship to him at birth; a "naturalized" citizen, meaning one who entered the country as an alien but later obtained citizenship via a process determined by law; and a foreigner. A natural born citizen cannot be a foreigner. Foreigners are not citizens. A natural born citizen cannot...

    <p>BOSTON (AP) ‚ÄĒ Two legal scholars squared off in a public debate on Friday to settle whether Republican Ted Cruz is eligible to become president. Spoiler alert: They didn't settle it.</p> <p>But the debate at Harvard Law School underscored that conflicting interpretations of the U.S. Constitution can produce different answers. The question has been in the national spotlight since Republican rival Donald Trump suggested that Cruz, who was born in Canada to an American mother, isn't legally qualified to be president.</p>

    Donald Trump, his aura of invincibility shattered by Iowa caucus voters he once called ‚Äústupid,‚ÄĚ is throwing a tantrum these days, convinced that Ted Cruz ‚Äúcheated‚ÄĚ and continues to maintain the untenable proposition that in any event he is a not eligible to be President of the United States. Cruz did not cheat in Iowa. Cruz supporters may have indeed cited to supporters of Dr. Ben Carson CNN news reports and tweets that Carson was skipping New Hampshire and South Carolina, so draw your own conclusions, but where were the Carson president captains to shepherd their flock?
