MEETING PARTICIPANTS REPORTEDLY GIVEN “HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENTS” BY TRUMP
by Sharon Rondeau
(Apr. 8, 2011) — A citizen reporter for The Post & Email close to a source who attended the meeting with Donald Trump at the Trump Tower in New York City this morning at 11:30 said that the source reported that “It couldn’t have gone any better.”
Citizen Reporter: Trump gave them a little over 30 minutes. WorldNetDaily had been patched in somehow and apparently had been privy to what was going on. Also, there were a lot of media outside in the hallway, but none was allowed into the meeting. The only people in the meeting were Trump, (Michael D.) Cohen, and the three people from Arizona.
The Post & Email: Who were the people who came from Arizona?
Citizen Reporter: Rep. Carl Seel, Jeff, and Kelly, who represented a tea party group. I was told that Trump didn’t seem to know about the “natural born Citizen” issue at all. He gave Jeff homework by saying, “I want to know everything about ‘natural born Citizen,’ and I want to know about these reports from Kenya when members of the Kenyan Parliament had talked about Obama having been born there.” Trump was very, very familiar with the tape from the grandmother; he actually quoted from it verbatim. But he wanted people to gather more information and get it to him.
The Post & Email: I included the statements made by the Parliament members in my letter to Mr. Trump.
Citizen Reporter: Yes, right. He has made a pledge that he will go to Arizona in the summer. He fully supports the Arizona eligibility bill and throws his weight behind that. He is going to go to Arizona in support of it if it hasn’t passed by then. I was told that the primary topics of the meeting were the Arizona eligibility bill and Obama’s eligibility.
There was no follow-up meeting scheduled. When they came out of the meeting, Rep. Carl Seel spoke to the press. As they were leaving, Theresa Cao said something to Jeff, who was trying to figure out who she was. He asked her, “Are you Theresa Cao?” and she said, “Yes, I am.” And she went to lunch with him.
The Post & Email: Did you say that Arizona Governor Jan Brewer was invited but was unable to go?
Citizen Reporter: That was based on an earlier conversation, but I didn’t reconfirm that. We were informed and believe that Gov. Brewer was unable to attend.
The Post & Email: If the meeting began at 11:30 and ended around noon, what were they doing between then and now? Were they talking to the gaggle of reporters outside?
Citizen Reporter: Only Rep. Seel spoke with them; that was the agreement that the other two were not to answer questions. He made a brief statement to the press and reassured Jeff and Kelly, saying that he had “said some good stuff.” As Jeff said, though, who knows what gets reported by the press these days? Then they went to lunch.
I followed up with a phone call and left a voice message which Jeff got, and when he called me, he said, “We’ve been out of here for over an hour and went to lunch.”
I’ll have more information tonight. Jeff said that Trump was engaged, asked questions and asked people to get information for him. He clearly showed that he wants to know more. If there was an issue with which he was unfamiliar, he definitely asked for people to get information back to him. Jeff characterized it that he was receiving a homework assignment from Trump. Kind-of as if they were “The Apprentices” there.
Update, April 8, 2011, 5:14 p.m. EDT: The following email communication was received from Jeff, one of the attendees at the Trump meeting earlier today:
Dear Friends and Fellow Fighters for the Preservation of Our Constitution,
As several of you may know already, State Representative Carl Seel, Kelly Townsend, and myself met in Donald Trump’s office in NY today with Mr. Trump and his chief executive Michael Cohen.
We had three goals going into the meeting and I believe that we met all three to the best extent possible in a 30 minute meeting (actually 20 because Mr. Trump took a call from Newsmax during the meeting). The goals were 1) to obtain Trump’s stated support for the current Arizona Eligibility Bills, which will come to decisive votes this coming week or the one after. 2) To find out as much as possible what the Trump Organization already knew and what they still may not know about the entire eligibility issue, and 3) to get a committment from him to come to Arizona to speak with the Governor, other public officials and the public.
Goal # 1 ….. Met in total, permission received to state his support for the bill publicly!!
Goal # 2 ….. Met within the time constraints. The discussion trend allowed me to ask Mr. Trump right after he was speaking about the Kenyan grandmother, whether he knew about the Kenyan Assemblyman, (James Orengo) who stated on their Assembly floor so that it is documented that Obama was a son of their soil. He apparently did not know of that and asked me to send him the documentation. Anyone who has it readily available is welcome to send it to me so that I can forward it. Even more importantly, I also had the opportunity when we were discussing whether a real long form birth certificate actually exists to do two things. I mentioned Tim Adams, the Hawaiian election clerk and recent affadavit and ALSO asked whether he, Trump, was going to take the issue beyond the birth certificate and place of birth to the question of NATURAL BORN CITIZENSHIP. He asked me to explain precisely what that was and I then got to recite the precise clause from Article II, Section I and explain what the founders meant by it; and where they got the concept from, that being Vattel. He said that he liked the way I was explaining it and gave me another “homework” assignment to send him more information about it. Also, at some point in the discussion, the false social security number belonging to someone from Connecticut born in 1890 came up and so they are aware of that situation to some extent – maybe not all the way to the FOIA actions and suits filed vs. the Social Security Administration by Orly Taitz. Time did not allow getting into the issue to that full extent. ANYONE WHO WANTS TO HELP ME WITH THESE HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENTS, PLEASE DO, I WELCOME IT.
Goal # 3 …. Met, very largely in total. Donald Trump has agreed to come to Phoenix probably in June and asked that Carl, Kelly, and myself be his “point men” when he does come.
Other items to possibly discuss that were on my personal “checklist” included the Pelosi Dual Nomination Forms constituting Election Fraud; the Secretary’s of States allowing anyone and everyone on ballots i.e. Roger Calero; McCain’s role in Senate Resolution 511; Terry Lakin and Theresa Cao (more on her below) the Congressional Research Service Report; the Newspaper Birth Announcements; the Selective Service Registration; Pastor Manning; and the Barnett vs. Obama case now going to be heard in 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. I’M SORRY BUT TIME AND DISCUSSION TRENDS DID NOT PERMIT THESE TO BE DISCUSSED.
There were at least ten to fifteen television cameras there and Carl Seel did about a ten minute interview with them and the press. At the end of that line was a lady who appeared to be a press member but turned out to be Theresa Cao. For those of you who don’t know who Theresa is and her story, I don’t have time here to get into it but she is an American hero and came all the way from DC by train this morning to see what was happening with this meeting. I had the pleasure of not only meeting her but taking her to lunch with us!
Anyone who has any additional questions, can feel free to contact me. Thanks.
