Can Donald Trump's probing overcome Obama's use of Rules for Radicals?

(May 10, 2011) — That about sums up what has happened over the past month or so, as Trump decided to ask the simple question legions of people have been asking and legions of lawyers have been waging lawsuits about for the past almost-three years: Where’s the birth certificate?

Instantly the craven media and assorted Hollywood types who have been effectively conspiring with Team Obama to keep all aspects of his life hidden from public view mobilized to quash Trump, as usual choosing Rule #12 from the Chicago Marxist Saul Alinsky’s famous book, Rules for Radicals: “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” In essence, go after your enemy personally and not his business because people are more vulnerable and hurt faster than institutions.

But whoever was responsible for the vast media blackout on the birth-certificate subject never counted on a person like Trump, who is immune to intimidation or threats. In short, they were messing with the wrong person.

Here is but a small sample of how “in the bag” the media were – even before Obama tried to come clean:

Those buzzing gnats – most of them surrogates for Obama – were easy-to-dismiss distractions to the mogul Trump. And when Trump followed up the birth-certificate subject by asking the exquisitely logical question that every parent with a teenager applying to college wonders – how could a not-too-bright student with so-so grades get into not one but two Ivy League schools – leftists became apoplectic, invoking, ala newsman Bob Schieffer, the main weapon they carry in their arsenal of projected character flaws: Racism!

On and on went the Obama apologists and name-callers until Obama’s team put their collective fingers in the air and realized that Trump was winning hearts and minds and they were losing. What to do? Okay, they grudgingly agreed, we’ll release the damned so-called long-form birth certificate and shut this guy up.

On Saturday, April 16, at the precise moment that Trump was giving a televised speech to a huge Tea Party crowd in Boca Raton, FL, guess who broke into that broadcast to announce his intention to release the real true authentic irrefutable can’t-be-argued-with version of his birth certificate on the Internet?

Clearly the Obama team had decided to abandon the first hoax of a birth and to release the colossal hoax and amateurish forgery of a second version, which has now been examined by forensic document examiners, critical thinkers, and those who prefer empiricism over hype. You can find some of their analyses here and here and here and here and here and here and from a leftist site here and from a graphic artist here and from Dr. Ron Polland here.

Why Release an Obvious Fake? blogger Dr. Kate asked her readers. “Why would [his handlers] expose Obama to such an obviously sloppy job of a faked document unless they wanted him and his network to go down? [Is this] clearing the way for [Hillary] Clinton?”

On the Andrea Shea King Radio Show on May 3, Charles Kerchner – a retired naval officer and the lead plaintiff (one of four) in a suit about the eligibility issue that was dismissed by the Supreme Court (read about it  here) – said that the “new” Obama birth certificate is “an obvious forgery” and that it was shocking that “a forgery would emanate from a White House server.”

Kerchner’s lawyer, Mario Apuzzo, puts the entire issue in plain English: “It has never been about the birth certificate…it is about the Constitution, and the fact that under the Constitution, Obama is not a natural born citizen. He cannot be, because his father was Kenyan and a British subject.”

The U.S. Constitution requires that both parents be natural-born Americans. And the reason is clear: Anyone whose parents are not born in America raises the very real specter of divided loyalties. And we’ve already seen that from Obama, with his peculiar involvement in the rigged presidential election in 2007 of the Marxist Raila Odinga in Kenya, whose campaign he contributed to and who he campaigned for. And since the Acorn-driven election of 2008 Obama has trotted around the globe embracing other Marxists like Manuel Zelaya in Honduras and Hugo Chavez in Venezuela and Daniel Ortega in Nicaragua. This is why dual loyalty is so dangerous.

Erick Erickson of www.redstate.com even joked about it: “As a friend noted on Facebook, Obama’s popularity is falling so fast that Kenyans are now claiming Obama was born in the United States!”

Trump was also skeptical about the second version of the birth certificate, which further fueled his popularity but seemed to plunge Obama’s ratings more deeply into the abyss – although other things contributed to those downwardly-plunging Rasmussen graphs, for instance a disastrous economy, increasing national debt, continuing high joblessness with unemployment applications that hit an eight-month high this month, escalating inflation, skyrocketing gas prices, and, in my opinion, the seditious White House/DOJ act in April of granting American citizenship to three people convicted of terrorist-related crimes.

Trump has succeeded by embodying the bedrock values that our Founders embraced:

  • Nose-to-the-grindstone hard work
  • Unstinting resilience in the face of failure
  • Irrepressible confidence in a better tomorrow
  • Bold initiatives in all pursuits
  • Fearlessness borne of a DNA American spirit
  • Embrace of free-market capitalism
  • An unwavering love for America
  • A steadfast belief in God

Can even one of these attributes describe Mr. Obama? I rest my case.

Whether it’s in mega-business deals, international beauty contests, rescuing iconic Manhattan landmarks like the Wollman skating rink,  spearheading and hosting the competitive “Apprentice” and “Celebrity Apprentice” TV shows  with wild success for over a decade, or philanthropic pursuits, Trump has demonstrated not only an entertaining grandiosity but also a reputation for getting things done and also a bluntness that is virtually absent from today’s debate on any subject, thanks to the contamination in our society of the leftist dogmas of political correctness and multiculturalism.

Political correctness has made once-outspoken conservative politicians tiptoe like sugarplum fairies through every serious issue. And multiculturalism – displaying the Left’s perverse egalitarianism – has dictated that everyone and everything is “equal,” contrasting, for instance, a country like Israel that makes deserts bloom, creates symphony orchestras, builds cutting-edge medical institutions, and leads the world in technology and Nobel prizes, with the “Palestinian” Authority, which gives hefty cash rewards to parents who strap suicide bombs on their three-year olds.

Clearly, Trump doesn’t subscribe to this leftist hogwash, which would ordinarily make him a welcomed contender with Republican shakers and movers. But since Trump dared to question Obama’s eligibility and to demand that he produce the infamously missing birth certificate – a subject the cowardly elites on both sides of the aisle have avoided like the plague for over two years – he has become the target of their hysterical wrath.

Haven’t you wondered why all 435 members of the U.S. Congress and all 100 members of the U.S. Senate have avoided this subject like it was the Ebola virus, and why the Supreme Court has rejected over a dozen lawsuits on this issue from seasoned attorneys deeply versed in Constitutional law?

My theory is that someone, or many someones, “reached” them. The other day, a friend of mine who owns a small business and owes money to several of his vendors got a call from a functionary of one firm who told him: “I’m on the Internet and I can tell you that I know what kind of underwear your grandchildren wear, so I expect a check from you.” And that was from a low-level employee of a relatively small firm for a relatively small amount of money.

Can you imagine the “reminders” that politicians and court justices (including on the Supreme Court) have received over the past three years about the hottest “don’t go there” issue regarding a “president” in U.S. history?

And that’s not to omit conservatives who have been too faint-hearted and sissified to ask not only about the birth certificate but about other vital information, for instance the missing medical records, the multiple Social Security cards (which www.FamilySecurityMatters.org president Carol Taber writes revealingly about here), the questionable visa(s), the Selective Service records, why both Obamas gave up their law licenses, on and on. And look how they cower or resort to the typical liberal tactic of insulting the messenger, or in Trump’s case, the questioner.

This is because, bottom line, he scares the hell out of them!

Just like Terry Lakin scared the hell out of Obama, and look at the horrific price he has paid! While the Obama regime launched Campaign 2012, with its obscene goal of raising a billion dollars while America is going broke – look here for Pamela Geller’s listing of the foreign contributions and finance fraud of his last campaign – LTC Lakin, who is a decorated U.S. Army flight surgeon, was still languishing in Leavenworth prison, deprived of his pay and benefits and destined to be dismissed from the military merely for questioning Obama’s eligibility to serve as President and Commander-in-Chief. Here is a direct quote from LTC Lakin: “The Constitution matters. The truth matters.” (FYI: http://www.terrylakinactionfund.com).


While Trump was asking questions and swatting critics, his momentum was gaining. So much so that Obama seemed to be developing an unhealthy obsession with the man. Or, as he would snarkily call Trump, the “carnival barker.” So obsessed, in fact, that the goons who do his bidding at the company he has a hefty share in, Facebook, are now trying to convince Indianapolis 500 officials to dump him as their pace car driver in the this month’s race, while others are trying to boycott the advertisers on his TV show.

On April 30th at the White House Correspondents Dinner, Obama directed scathing comments at Trump. According to Don Fredrick, at his Obama Timeline site, “Obama takes perverted pleasure in criticizing and mocking people who have no ability to retaliate” – which he did to both Hillary Clinton and John McCain during the presidential campaign, to the Supreme Court Justices during the January 2010 State of the Union address, and to Cong. Paul Ryan during the April 13 budget-deficit speech.”

As Mychal Massie, chairman of the National Leadership Network of Black Conservatives, notes approvingly, “Trump is doing what you do to bullies. You get in their faces and tell them it’s time for a gut check – and in the case of Obama, nothing would please me more than seeing him and his sneapish smirk sent packing back to Chicago.”

Quite possible, actually, when you consider that quickly on the heels of the birth-certificate brouhaha came three threats that Team Obama wanted to make disappear.

The first was described by Pamela Geller, author with Robert Spencer of The Post-American Presidency: The Obama Administration’s War on America, in an article entitled “An illegitimate child, an illegitimate president.” Geller claims “that Barack Hussein Obama Sr.’s immigration file was the impetus for President Obama to release his “long form” birth certificate last week. If he thought that release would put the matter to rest, it has had the opposite effect. It has all raised more questions than it answered, [including] shocking revelations…”

The second took place on May 2nd in Pasadena, CA, and involved arguments in the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals by lawyer Orly Taitz and Gary Kreep of the U.S. Justice Foundation, who were granted a chance to challenge the dismissal of their separate cases by a Santa Ana federal judge two years ago – those cases being that the “president” was not a natural-born American and should be removed from office. Taitz told the court that the Obama administration had pressured the legal system to hide the truth.

The greatest and most immediate threat, however, is a book due out May 17th by Jerome Corsi, the same man who co-wrote the book, Unfit for Command – Swift Boat Veterans Speak Out Against John Kerry, which completely and deservedly derailed Sen. Kerry’s run for the presidency.

But this time Dr. Corsi has writtenWhere’s the Birth Certificate? The Case that Barack Obama is not Eligible to be President, which has already shot to #1 on several prominent bestseller lists.

Uh oh.

I can see it all now, a light bulb suggestion by an Obama advisor that they use the info Gateway Pundit says they’ve known about since last August, specifically that Osama bin Laden has been living in a so-called mansion in Pakistan, not far from a military base, for the past five years.

Aha! What a perfect time for a WE INTERRUPT THIS PROGRAM announcement! But they didn’t make the announcement last August when they ostensibly got the news, and not in any of the months that followed, and not last week or on Saturday or on Sunday morning or afternoon. Instead Obama picked Sunday night, just in time to cut in on guess whose hit television show? Can’t make this up! (Is this called stalking?)

And, of course, perfect time to orchestrate several things at one time:

1.    A total eclipse of any significant coverage of the above-mentioned issues.

2.    Blanket coverage of dozens of “spontaneous” gatherings in New York and D.C. (it’s just about the middle of the night, remember), where people showed up an hour before the Big Announcement waving flags and chanting pro-USA and anti-Osama mantras. Reminds me of those equally spontaneous uprisings in the Middle East, where brand new placards and perfectly-constructed tent cities magically appear overnight.

3.    The appearance of Obama-approved-experts touting the mission virtually around the clock to all media outlets.

But here is an analysis by Paul Craig Roberts who describes how warped and inaccurate the media were in informing the American public about what was really happening: “The US government’s bin Laden story was so poorly crafted that it did not last 48 hours before being fundamentally altered.”

At this point we have no body, no DNA reports, no photographs, and no confirmation on audiotape or videotape that bin Laden’s daughter witnessed her father’s death. All we have are the conflicting reports of a regime that has become famous for its egregious lack of transparency and bald-faced lies, lies that are chillingly documented in Jack Cashill’s can’t-put-down book, Deconstructing Obama.

Joyce Romano, who always hits a Bullseye, sums it up best with this piece from Bookwormroom.com. “Usually when governments use misinformation, they use it to make themselves look good.  The Obama Administration gets points for originality, insofar as it’s been using disinformation and misinformation to make itself look arbitrary, unlawful, helpless and stupid.  Here is a great summary.

And here is the latest from the John Batchelor radio show. His guest, Larry Johnson of No Quarter, said Bin Laden was killed in Pakistan but his body was not taken onboard the USS Carl Vincent and dumped into the sea. Rather he was flown to Bagram AFB in Afghanistan for DNA testing and then his body was dumped from a plane somewhere over the Hindu Kush mountain range that stretches between central Afghanistan and northern Pakistan.

No wonder The Washington Times said that Team Obama “is in lockdown” on the particulars of their disposal of the most hated man in the civilized world….Sending in a SEAL team to blow off bin Laden’s head showed presidential leadership. The subsequent handling of the body and burial, however, raises serious questions about Mr. Obama’s dominant priority.” Especially when the esteemed Andrew Bostom writes that an article in The Washington Times by Anneke Green reports that the elaborate burial ceremony for bin Laden included prayers that cursed both Christians and Jews.


In the aftermath of the heroic take-down of bin Laden by the U.S. Navy’s Seal Team Six, all praise was deservedly showered on America’s venerated military heroes. But the same cannot be said for Mr. Obama.

On RedState.com, a piece called On Bin Laden’s Death noted: “We arrived at 9/11 because President Clinton refused to do as much. Even so, one can’t help but notice that Obama’s statement on the death of bin Laden completely ignores the debt owed to the Bush Administration while at the same time taking a couple of oblique swipes.”

In that regard, the title of a Washington Times editorial says it all: “No Class: Obama snubs Bush, praises himself.” Or as radio host and writer Kevin McCullough titled a recent article: “Obama’s Win, Bush’s Credit.”

Interesting, isn’t it, that a new poll at Newsmax/InsiderAdvantage shows a mild boost in support for Obama but resounding credit to President Bush for the al Qaeda leader’s capture.

Congressman Peter King also weighed in, saying that the intelligence that led to bin Laden’s take-down was the result of waterboarding instituted during the Bush years, a method which Obama and the leftists who surround him vigorously protested.

And just to think it was Obama himself who said the following while running for the presidency in October of 2007: “I have been consistent in my strong belief that no Administration should allow the use of torture, including so-called ‘enhanced interrogation techniques’ like water-boarding, head-slapping, and extreme temperatures. It’s time that we had a Department of Justice that upholds the rule of law and American values, instead of finding ways to enable the President to subvert them.”

In announcing the attack to the nation, at the bizarrely-timed-near-midnight hour, Obama went out of his way to say: “We must also reaffirm that the United States is not – and never will be – at war with Islam…bin Laden was not a Muslim leader; he was a mass murderer of Muslims.”

That was a stunning surprise to Pamela Geller, who wrote on her website the following refutation:

“Pure nonsense. Whether we like it or not, Osama bin Laden was a Muslim leader…he was a beloved figure to millions in the Muslim world because of his devotion and purity to the Islamic jihad. And if he wasn’t a Muslim leader, why was he buried within 24 hours of his death `in keeping with Islamic tradition’? We washed and cleaned this monster? Outrageous…If bin Laden was not a Muslim leader, but was instead a `mass murderer of Muslims,’ why was the government of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan protecting him?”

Come to think of it, what is it about Obama and dumping people’s remains in the ocean? On October 24, 2008, 11 days before the election, Obama arrived alone on a night flight to Honolulu, where his “typical white person” maternal grandmother was reported by the Obamamedia to be gravely ill, but not quite ill enough for Michelle and the granddaughters to make the trip. What was going through Obama’s mind? How could he possibly know that his ‘beloved’ grandmother would die the day before the election? What secrets about Obama’s ‘father’ did she take with her to her grave? Madalyn Dunham died ‘suddenly’ of previously-unannounced `terminal cancer’ while convalescing from a broken hip in her bungalow one day before the U.S. general election in Nov. 2008. Her remains were cremated – against her written wishes – within 12 hours after death. Mmmmm….does anyone else but me smell a rat?

As to bin Laden and his alleged burial at sea, Obama shows once again that he doesn’t have the backbone of a Trump. Obama said “no” to making the photographs public since our enemies might not like us. Puleeeze! Here are some photographs taken by a Pakistani security official who entered the compound after the early morning raid on Monday. If they inflame our enemies, so be it. And if they attack us again, a Trump, like former President George W. Bush, would let it be known that Mecca and Medina would be the next targets our SEALs would, ahem, address.

While most people, at least so far, either believe or want to believe the Obama regime’s narrative about bin Laden’s demise, there are people like Gonzalo Lira (“Sorry, I Don’t Believe This”) and Gordon Duff (“U.S. Openly Accepts bin Laden Long Dead”) and Dr. Paul Craig Roberts (“Osama bin Laden’s Second Death”) who make pretty persuasive cases that the entire operation was simply a Wag the Dog effort to boost Obama’s sagging poll numbers. In fact, Political Tiger spells out the pressure Trump used to force Obama into a classic Wag the Dog scenario.

Even if Obama hoped that his May 5th visit to Ground Zero in NY City would boost his poll numbers, he would have to contend with critics who have never forgotten or forgiven the fact that he blew off Ground Zero Memorial Services in 2009 and 2010.

And that is not to omit the cruel slap he dealt to Debra Burlingame, the sister of Charles “Chic” Burlingame (pilot of the plane that crashed into the Pentagon) when she questioned Obama about Attorney General Eric Holder’s plan to prosecute the men who interrogated Khalid Sheik Mohammed, from whom they obtained the information crucial to finding bin Laden. “As a former attorney,” she said, “I know you can’t tell the Attorney General what to do, [and] he said, ‘No, I can’t.’ But I said ‘… that shouldn’t stop you from giving your opinion. We wouldn’t be here today if they hadn’t done their jobs. Can’t you at least give them your opinion?’ And he said, ‘no I won’t,’ and he turned around and walked away.”


But all the above pales in comparison with a potentially immense scandal that could make Watergate look like a minor prank.

According to a Washington, D.C. Insider (as reported by Ulsterman), who has been leaking explosive information about the inner workings of the White House for some time, the “president” was so completely incapable of making the decision to take down bin Laden that senior military and intelligence officials ultimately took control and made the decision to take out the terrorist.

Part of this jaw-dropping report states that there was a significant push to take out bin Laden months ago, but the senior White House staff resisted, which severely strained the relationship between Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Obama’s alter-ego and closest advisor – some think she’s the de facto president– Iranian-born Valerie Jarrett. [Read more about Jarrett from the Washington Insider here ].

The decision was finally made for Obama not by Obama by the Navy Seals. With 48 hours until the order was issued, the Chain of Command was told to the Administration, not requested. The Administration scrambled to abort the mission, but that order was overruled.

Photo taken in “War Room” of Administration figures watching the mission being executed. Obama still wearing his golf clothes.

Here is the detailed report from the Washington Insider: It begins by saying: “What Valerie Jarrett and the president did not know is that Leon Panetta had already initiated a program that reported to him – and only him – involving a covert on-the-ground attack against the compound.”

Q: You stated that President Obama was “overruled” by military/intelligence officials regarding the decision to send in military specialists into the Osama Bin Laden compound.  Was that accurate?

A: I was told – in these exact terms, “we overruled him” (Obama).  I have since followed up and received further details on exactly what that meant, as well as the specifics of how Leon Panetta worked around the president’s “persistent hesitation to act.”  There appears NOT to have been an outright overruling of any specific position by President Obama, simply because there was no specific position from the president to do so.  President Obama was, in this case, as in all others, working as an absentee president….There had been a push to invade the compound for several weeks if not months, primarily led by Leon Panetta, Hillary Clinton, Robert Gates, David Petraeus, and Jim Clapper.  The primary opposition to this plan originated from Valerie Jarrett, and it was her opposition that was enough to create uncertainty within President Obama.

Q: What changed the president’s position and enabled the attack against Osama Bin Laden to proceed?

A:  Nothing changed with the president’s opinion – he continued to avoid having one. Every time military and intelligence officials appeared to make progress in forming a position, Jarrett would intervene and the stalling would begin again…A brief meeting was held at this time with other officials, including Secretary Gates and members of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, but Gates, like Panetta, was unable to push the president to act.  It was at this time that Gates indicated to certain Pentagon officials that he may resign earlier than originally indicated – he was that frustrated.  Both Panetta and Clinton convinced him to stay on and see the operation through…What happened from there is what was described by me as a “masterful manipulation” by Leon Panetta….

In my initial communication to you of these events I described what unfolded as a temporary Coup initiated by high ranking intelligence and military officials. I stand by that term.  These figures worked around the uncertainty of President Obama and the repeated resistance of Valerie Jarrett.

Again, read the entire detailed report here.

No incidentally, Ulster Man reports on his Facebook page the following:

ALERT: 6/5/11 9:00 PM Radio 77 WABC report. At 19:05 and 30:05 interview with former CIA and State Dept. member Larry Johnson CONFIRMING information originally produced by Insider regarding Bin Laden operation. http://www.wabcradio.com/sectional.asp?id=33447.

It is interesting that Panetta, who is now the Director of Central Intelligence, told a PBS radio news reporter that during the assault on bin Laden’s living quarters and on the terrorist himself there was a 25-minute blackout when the live-feed cameras mounted on the helmets of the attacking U.S. Navy SEALs was cut off.

A 25-minute blackout! Ah…the memory is jogged, as I’m sure Hillary Clinton’s was jogged, seeing that she sat on the Watergate Committee in 1973 that sought to impeach Richard Nixon and heard President Nixon’s secretary, Rose Mary Woods, speak about finding an [obviously damaging] 18½ -minute gap in the audiotape of a conversation between Nixon and his  Chief-of-Staff  H.”Bob” Haldeman.

As an important aside, given that the entire scenario of the birth certificate release and the bin Laden take-down may have been engineered by the Clinton Machine – look at the players, Panetta heading the list – consider the following:

It’s relevant to remember that Hillary was hired by Jerry Zeifman, a lifelong Democrat and a Watergate Chief of Staff attorney who supervised Hillary Rodham on the Watergate committee. She got the job on the recommendation of Burke Marshall a former law professor and attorney for Ted Kennedy during his Mary Jo Kopechne scandal. Once the committee’s investigation was over, Zeifman fired Hillary, saying: “She was an unethical, dishonest lawyer. She conspired to violate the Constitution, the rules of the House, the rules of the committee and the rules of confidentiality, who against the wishes of the Democratic leadership and the Speaker of the House, Tip O’Neill, wanted to deprive Nixon of legal counsel.” Zeifman charged Hillary with writing a fraudulent legal brief and then confiscating public documents to hide her deception. To try to simplify the issue, the brief she wrote involved any previous court rulings about whether someone had the right to legal counsel when facing impeachment. When Zeifman heard about Hillary’s plans to try to prevent Nixon from obtaining counsel, he told her about the precedent set by Supreme Court Justice William Douglas, who himself obtained legal counsel when facing an impeachment proceeding in 1970. So in an effort which would eerily repeat itself in Travelgate and FBIgate years later at the White House, Hillary cleaned out the public files of the Judiciary Committee that contained the documents related to the Douglas proceedings and locked them in her office, which was unavailable to the public. Hillary then wrote the brief stating that there was no precedent to having counsel in an impeachment proceeding, and did not cite anything from the Douglas case. Zeifman stated that he believes she would have been disbarred if a judge had seen the brief. Additionally, Zeifman stated that had Hillary been successful in her efforts, the committee would not have been able to cross-examine witnesses and actually would NOT have been able to draft the Article of Impeachment against Nixon. And who was one of her co-conspirators in this mess? Why future Clinton White House Counsel, Bernard Nussbaum, who later spoke of Hillary as being a “star attorney” during her Watergate Committee stint. The story of this sordid event by Dan Calabrese has been written about here by Rick Moran at American Thinker. NOTE: Apparently one of the smartest women in America flunked the D.C. Bar exam just before she served on the Watergate Committee.

The only difference between what happens in a banana republic and what happened last week in D.C. is that the coup wasn’t immediately followed by General Petraeus taking to the airwaves to announce that Obama had resigned and that Biden was filling the void until the Congress could determine the way forward. However the facts revealed by the Insider demonstrate that Obama has had an internal shellacking and that he now understands that he really is not in control. It also makes clear to him that he’d better not go too far in usurping the powers of his office or “steps will be taken” by the same people who left him out of the loop in the bin Laden decision.

Or, for that matter, by George Soros, who at a private meeting shortly after Obama took a self-described “shellacking” at the polls in the midterm elections last November told a group of progressives in D.C. the following: “We have just lost this election; we need to draw a line. And if this president can’t do what we need, it is time to start looking somewhere else.”


A lot of people – as in the millions – believe that Trump is striking a resonant chord, which journalist Kyle-Anne Shiver has expanded upon. “Trump does seem to realize that our Republic is genuinely on the line.  He seems to understand that the affirmative-action presidency may have temporarily made Americans feel better about themselves but that it has been very destructive for our economy and for the overall safety of the entire world.”

AWR Hawkins is also enthusiastic. “Since late 2006, when Barack Obama put people “on notice” about making fun of his big ears, the majority of Republicans in Congress and the Senate have become conditioned to jump when the President says, `boo’!…when Obama says `jump’, they just ask `how high’? Of course it doesn’t have to be this way. And we know this is so because Donald Trump, an outside-the-beltway television celebrity and real estate mogul, laughed when Obama said, `boo’ and afterwards we all saw the President jump for a change. Take it from Trump, Obama is beatable.”

Trump has not only flushed a birth certificate out of Obama (phony as it is) but he – as well as the other exposés I mentioned – has flushed out his phony pacifism by assenting to the United States Military to invade a foreign country and assassinate bin Laden. Ha – take that Code Pink!

In short, Trump calls it as he sees it.  And when he saw what the spectacularly-unqualified-for-the-job Obama was doing to his beloved America – and to his formidable pocketbook – he went into Trump mode, which was to question and challenge the amateur “president” who clearly knows nothing – or more horrifying, cares nothing – about America or about the fuel that has made America the most successful and generous country on the face of the earth: free-market capitalism and faithful adherence to the U.S. Constitution!

It goes without saying that Trump has hit a nerve. According to the highly reliable Rasmussen polling organization, a staggering 70 percent of Americans believe the country is moving down the wrong track.

“Coach” Kevin Collins says that Obama’s incompetence, bin Laden’s death and Karl Rove will combine to elect Donald Trump, which is hard to argue, except for the fact that no one knows if Trump will run.

It’s no exaggeration to say that Trump has shaken the political tree to its roots by facing down Obama and exposing what I believe is a multi-tentacle leftist cabal to ferret a true Trojan Horse into America’s body politic. To his credit, Trump has taken on the entire “system” – from the Hollywood phonies to the politically-impotent RINOs to the faux objective-journalists of the Left to the inveterately intolerant liberals.

Does anyone doubt his ability to fix our economy and our foreign policy and put our country back on track? If nothing else, his boldness and fearlessness should put every Republican presidential candidate on alert: Step up to the plate or be slapped down by a Leftist Machine that promises lifelong Communism for our beloved Republic.

There, I’ve said it. But then again, so would Trump!

Through all the drama, Americans were getting a bird’s-eye-view of what leadership looked like and conversely what lack of leadership looked like. They realized that the native-New Yorker Trump had created a formidable empire, estimable reputation and beautiful family by following the rules of American exceptionalism, which are anathema to the current resident of the White House who clearly strives for American mediocrity, if not downright failure.

    “I’m not a so-called “birther,” as such, pursuant to those questioning the legality of Obama’s reign as president. And I can think of only one scenario under which I would vote for Donald Trump. With those caveats stated, I do think Trump should be applauded for bringing the battle to Obama in a bare-knuckle street-brawl manner – and I think he should continue.

    Barack Hussein Obama is a dishonest, untruthful, arrogant, narcissistic human being. I say that because he has conducted himself in ways that make it impossible to conclude anything else. And his suddenly providing a birth certificate, after ignoring requests to provide same for three years, makes him even more so.

    His refusal to do so, in addition to his failed policies, has undermined the confidence of the nation in his leadership, including many in the military who must answer to him. It was also a clear example of his disregard for the propriety of the office he holds. A true leader would have understood that the office he holds is bigger than him, and that he serves at the pleasure of the American people. Had he understood those truths, for the good of the nation he would have ended the debate immediately.

    Complicit in his disrespect, an ineffective, politically biased media failed to do their jobs in treating his background as they did President George W. Bush’s military records. When it came to Bush, nothing was too small or too insignificant for them to pursue and report. Even the Clintons had their most personal and darkest secrets made known, or at least speculated about. And need I mention the type of investigations they did concerning Justice Thomas, Arnold Schwarzenegger, John McCain or Sarah Palin?

    Having failed in their journalistic responsibility, even as they present themselves as the apodictics by which all truth is judged, the weight of responsibility for demanding the truth surrounding Obama fell to Jerome Corsi and Donald Trump.”

    “President Reagan was right when he said, “Trust, but verify.”

    President Obama’s long form birth certificate must be tested forensically.

    At the very least, a forensics expert should examine the hospital admission records for Stanley Ann Dunham, as well as the paper and ink formulation on the original long form birth certificate.

    Do these requests seem unreasonable? Not at all as one considers that, when enemies of George W. Bush began to question his Texas Air National Guard service, they demanded copies of his service records. He then released them, and they continued to question him, demanding hard copies.

    Oh! — and now that President Obama has released a long form birth certificate, will he ask the Democrats to drop their opposition to state laws requiring forensic testing of such documents? I would hope that Mr. Obama now would wholeheartedly endorse efforts of state legislators introducing eligibility bills, to include provisions for forensics testing of any documents where authenticity might be in question.

    An honest man has nothing to fear from a forensics test: like DNA evidence, it helps to convict the guilty and protect the innocent.”

  3. One poll – just ONE – from the ever-biased public policy people and everyone hails Trump as finished after ever other poll had him leading.

    The problem is both establishments are terrified of him: the left for obvious reasons, and the conventional GOP politicos because Trump may own country clubs, but he doesn’t play the political game like a member. He gets out and says the truth the way it needs to be said in these desperate times when an inexperienced Marxist is running the country surrounded by Marxist “professors” who do not know fantasy from reality.

    As opposed to the appearance that Trump has abandoned the birther issue, I’m placing my money on the idea that he has his legal/forensic team getting their ducks in a row to call out the fake birth certificate. When Trump goes quiet it only ever – EVER – means one of two things: either there is nothing to talk about, which is certainly not the case…. OR IT’S THE LULL BEFORE THE STORM.

    Trump rose on the “birther’ tide. He skyrocketed past everyone else in great measure because of it and Trump is hugely intelligent; he knows all that. He also knows that even WND has officially called the long form birth certificate a fraud. I did an analysis myself published elsewhere. Every photoshop student to expert knows it’s a pathetic fake. Not maybe, could be or in someone’s opinion: absolutely, 100% definately for real. A fake. If the hugely intelligent Trump cares one bit about being president, he’ll dig in his heels on this issue, get the best forensic people money can buy and call a press conference and shout down irate Obama-supporting reporters and call out Obama on the fraud and explain why. He should have his experts at his side: all 20 or 30 of them.

    Trump has 2 choices, now: call out Obama and make his stand, or back off and take a horrible pounding from the press who will mock him once they know he has given up and make sure this humiliation stays with him the rest of his life as a paranoid warning to others. Trump must know all this. My money is he doesn’t just say, “Now we can talk about what we really need to talk about” and drop the issue because his base will abandon him and the press will destroy him forever. He’s in it now. He knows it. It’s win or lose – no easy stroll away from the issue.

    But while I don’t believe the current PP poll, because it’s such a drastic, singular anomaly, the fact is that Trump needs to craft a confrontational message quickly or the tide really will begin to turn. In the meantime he should issue a quick statement and say, “Our experts are still looking at it” because the silence really is getting a bit much to take. It would also keep his poll numbers solid. Deep down, even mainstream America wants him to win on the birther issue – his prior polls have essentially proved it.

    1. “When Trump goes quiet it only ever – EVER – means one of two things: either there is nothing to talk about, which is certainly not the case…. OR IT’S THE LULL BEFORE THE STORM.”

      Very well said sir, and couldn’t agree more with your entire comment.

  4. I think he just cooled the interviews for a while. He complained himself that he couldn’t talk about the things he wanted because the media kept bringing up the birther issue. I think he was asked for some interviews only because of the birther issue.

    I think Donald is sincere and I know he is certainly patriotic. We need him very much.
    I for one will be forever greatful because he has brought the issue to mainstream media which we needed very badly. The media can no longer deny they did not vet Obama now.

    1. That’s what I think, too, that he’s waiting until after Corsi’s book is released next week. As RO pointed out, unless he talked about “birther” or, and this is my addition to RO’s comment, dropped the F-bomb, the enemedia reported nothing that he said. Based upon the teasers in articles posted at WND this week, Corsi’s book is going to blow this issue wide open, which should help move Trump from the defensive position the enemedia has relegated him back into playing offense again.

      1. As usual Auntie M, you and I are on exactly the same page. What intelligent tactician, as an example Mr. Trump, would try and play his hand on ANY issue during the virtual tsunami of media frenzy that we have witnessed of late.
        The ungrateful trump bashers with their exceedingly short memories would do well to remember that Mr Trump single- handedly accomplished in a few short weeks what tens of thousands of hard working dedicated Patriots could NOT do in over 2.5 years, we Constitutionalist/birthers were totally marginalized by barry’s cult-like media machine. We were effectively relegated to the wilderness, with absolutely -0- national media traction.

        Now, again thanks to Mr. Trump, we are for the first time actually winning…he actually forced the long legged mack daddy to dance his skinny behind right onto national television and convict himself with yet another fraudulent bc…Stay tuned for Round 2…

  5. Great article except for the statement “The U.S. Constitution requires that both parents be natural-born Americans. ” Parents need to be citizens (Natural Born or Naturalized at the time of birth, which is why Obama is not qualified. His father was a foreigner, a British subject of the country that would become Kenya.

  6. Both Harry H and Bob1943 are 100% right about parents who are natural born citizens NOT being a part of the Constitutionally mandated requirements for the office of president. They only have to be citizens.

    As for “Trump for president;” I have been promoting his efforts against Obama with an open mind as to actually deciding to support him at a later date. However, after reading this article; which, ironically, was written in support of Trump, I think it’s time to make the decision to NOT give him my support as a presidential candidate.

    Why? Simply because Trump is TOO powerful and TOO connected to other Powers That Be. One of those PTB, and probably the most dangerous, is certainly George Soros. Trump has had at least some business connections to Soros.

    Recently when Glenn Beck asked Trump about George Soros, Trump replied “Forget Soros. Leave him alone. He’s got enough problems…let’s talk about somebody else.”

    When I first heard that, it surprised me that someone willing to take on Obama on the birth certificate issue as well as many other Obama negatives would balk at even discussing such an obviously politically connected person as is Soros. Especially, since most of his connections are to the left. Still, I passed it off as perhaps a desire to spend his allotted time talking about things he considered more important.

    But, after reading the above article plus “White House Insider: Obama’s West Wing Civil War” (http://socyberty.com/politics/white-house-insider-eric-holder-is-gonna-fall/10/) and “White House Insider: Eric Holder Is Gonna Fall” (http://socyberty.com/politics/white-house-insider-eric-holder-is-gonna-fall/) I’m quickly becoming leery of the “Rich and Powerful” and their apparent machinations to control established American protocol in choosing a president.

    All the talk about people in the background controlling what is happening is worrisome to say the least; and, both Trump and Soros have the means and the motive to control America’s future in ways that profit themselves rather than being best for the rest of us.

    It also bothers me that as soon as Obama revealed his ‘birth certificate,’ Trump virtually disappeared. Was all his hype on that issue a ruse to give Obama an excuse to go public with the BC in hopes that it would placate the ‘birthers?” Was all the Trump/BC coverage by the lamestream media a part of the ruse? I think it is pretty obvious. The question is, “Who was it intended to benefit?”

    I certainly do not know for sure; but, the whole Trump/BC thing suddenly stinks to me… Regardless of who TPTB favor, it should be left to the American citizenry to decide without their potentially self-serving influence.

    Iran can prove Bin Laden was dead long before US raid – Iranian minister
    permalink email story to a friend print version

    Published: 10 May, 2011, 17:07

    Iranian Intelligence Minister Heydar Moslehi claims that Osama Bin Laden died from an illness before the US raid on his compound in Abbottabad. Iran has documents to prove it, he said.

    “We have credible information that Bin Laden died some time ago of a disease,” Moslehi said on the sidelines of a cabinet meeting on Sunday, as quoted by ISNA news agency.

    “If the US military and intelligence apparatus have really arrested or killed Bin Laden, why don’t they show him [his body]? Why have they thrown his corpse into the sea?” Moslehi asked rhetorically, FARS news agency reports.

    Moslehi labeled the US raid in Abbottabad as a “PR campaign”, created to divert the attention of its citizens from domestic problems, such as the “fragile” state of the US economy.

    Continues here……


    1. “Iran can prove Bin Laden was dead long before US raid – Iranian minister”

      That’s a great headline, jacqlyn…there are lots of reports from various sources that have obl dead as long a 8 years ago, however, so far nobody has been forthcoming with solid, conclusive proof…personally I would be ecstatic if the Iranian minister did prove it conclusively, because barry would go down so fast and so would his sycophantic main-sleaze-media!

      1. Jack,

        How about this?

        One of bin Laden’s sons is missing from the raid that purportedly killed Osama. We never got to see the body of Osama, which was tossed into the sea as quickly as possible. Maybe that body was a bin Laden, just not Osama? It will be interesting to see if this son ever turns up anywhere. The picture of an older “Osama” setting in a chair watching TV is way too much of a rear profile shot to be definitive as to who it is. The other pictures I have seen of Osama, which I assume are supposed to be recent, have him looking much younger and healthier than pictures shown in videos years ago. Sure he could have dyed his beard…….or not, but even his skin looks younger. He must have at least temporarily gotten over the severe disease he was said to be suffering from 8-10 years ago?

        Up until Osama was reportedly killed, I had thought he was dead years ago. If not he would have still been making videos to prove was alive and in charge.

        Now I could be wrong, and yes, what I am saying may sound far out. The problem is I have a total loss of trust in my federal government. Do I think an Obama regime floundering in the polls and being pounded, even by some liberals, would try to pull-off a fraud of this magnitude?

        Probably not, but putting it into the category of “impossible” is difficult for me to do.

      2. Bob says;

        “One of bin Laden’s sons is missing from the raid that purportedly killed Osama. We never got to see the body of Osama, which was tossed into the sea as quickly as possible. Maybe that body was a bin Laden, just not Osama?”

        This is a theory that I’ve not heard, anything at this point is possible. If this was an administration that actually had Americas best interests at heart and intell showed obl
        alive, common sense would dictate a totally covert snatch and grab…in and out, and then keep it totally quite and set obl up at some fancy new digs at the Rendition Hilton and spend a couple months/years mining the hard drive for juicy tid bits of useful intell to be used against Americas enemies at our leisure. Sorry, I know, that makes way too much common sense.

        Bob says;

        “Now I could be wrong, and yes, what I am saying may sound far out. The problem is I have a total loss of trust in my federal government. Do I think an Obama regime floundering in the polls and being pounded, even by some liberals, would try to pull-off a fraud of this magnitude?

        Probably not, but putting it into the category of “impossible” is difficult for me to do.”

        Absolutely 100% impossible at this point. Americans are being played like a cheap fiddle with disinformation morphing into new disinformation by the hour, nobody knows what to believe and that’s the way they want it…total confusion and distraction…But why???

        I think you said it best;

        “Do I think an Obama regime floundering in the polls and being pounded, even by some liberals, would try to pull-off a fraud of this magnitude?”

        Yes sir, I do, after all this is childs play after pulling off the fraud and treason necessary to overtly orchestrate the usurpation of the the office of POTUS by a criminal muslim thug.

        But in the end, it doesn’t matter what I think, what matters is the truth.

  8. Sadly, Swirsky gets it wrong on a vital point when she says, “The U.S. Constitution requires that both parents be natural-born Americans.” No, only the president is required to be a natural-born American. Geeezz. Her hero-worship of Trump and her backhand swipe at the PLO were also unwarranted. Otherwise, the piece is highly informative and worthwhile.

    If Obama manages to hang on until the election, Trump may just ensure O’s re-election by running as an independent, a la Ross Perot. I hope Obama will be forced to resign before then.

  9. Thank you, Joan, for writing such an extraordinary, outstanding, & a great article that has
    so many outstanding & extremely informative links of information! I followed the links that you included in your great article and I read many articles that I was not aware about! Joan, I am going to be absolutely certain to forward your extraordinary article to Donald Trump, so he can read this too. When you say that Donald Trump was being attacked by the “hysterical wrath” of the lunatic Serial Criminal, Foreign & Domestic Terrorist, Communist/NWO/Fascist/Islamist Usurper Obama’s supporters, you truly rang in & brought into the United States wonderful, factual truth and information, Joan, for ALL people to be properly armed & informed with, as We The People take back the USA from the serial criminals who have completely lawlessly seized the USA government without legal power and authority.

    Sharon, CDR Kerchner posted recent contact information for Trump (via his attny), & I was wondering if you have this contact info for Trump that CDR Kerchner had posted? Sharon, can you please post the correct & valid contact information where Trump can be contacted, if you have it here? I want to send Trump this extraordinary & outstanding article and other information. Thank you!

    What we need is a Godly, moral, extremely strong leader in the USA. Here is what we are facing:

    A Meticulously Researched & An Extremely Informative Book – By Dr. Jerome R. Corsi:

    “Today, we face the possibility that the U.S.A. may not long endure. Our national sovereignty is being compromised in favor of an emerging regional government, designed by the elites for the elites…..” – Dr. Jerome R. Corsi

    From: “THE LATE GREAT U.S.A.”


    “In 2005, during a meeting in Waco, Texas, the leaders of the United States, Mexico, and Canada announced the establishment of the innoculous sounding “Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America,” an announcement that was never submitted to Congress for debate. Why? Because the Security and Prosperity Partnership lays the groundwork for the unthinkable — a merger of the U.S., Mexico, and Canada into a European-Union type “North American Union,” complete with a shared currency, a shared judiciary — and no borders.

    In “The Late Great U.S.A.,” Dr. Jerome Corsi, co-author of the New York Times bestseller, “Unfit For Command,” shows how a bureaucratically-entrenched army of “world citizens” is working tirelessly towards this EU-like merger. In the brave new world they envision, the U.S. will no longer be a sovereign nation, but a market designed for maximum economic exploitation by multinational corporations and foreign governments, American citizens be damned.

    In “The Late Great U.S.A.,” Corsi details:

    * How globalist business leaders and taxpayer funded academics are deliberately side-stepping the Constitution—and Congress—-in order to submerge the U.S. into a regional government.

    * How the state of Texas is seizing millions of acres of privately owned land so that foreign investors can cash in on a NAFTA “superhighway” from Mexico to the Canadian border.

    * How China, through its proxies in Mexico, plans to bring the world’s sole superpower to its knees economically—-without firing a shot.

    Look Inside This Great Book:

    Continue To Read The Back Flap Of This Book, “The Late Great U.S.A.” Here:



    “The North American Union would not just be the end of America as we know it, but the beginning of an EU-like nightmare—a bureaucratic coup d’etat foisted upon millions of American citizens without their knowledge or consent.

    The Late Great U.S.A. is a meticulously researched story of deceit, the chapters of which are being written in secret, by an unaccountable, unelected bureaucracy. The Security and Prosperity partnership is not just unconstitutional but an act of treason committed at the highest levels, one that must be stopped before the U.S.A. as a free and sovereign nation fades into history.” – Dr. Jerome R. Corsi

    There are so many excellent points in this outstanding editorial, that they deserve individual comments…Thanks again, ma’am !!!

  12. Very good article, but where is Trump now?


    Is it just me just me….or is there something incorrect about this statement?


    “The U.S. Constitution requires that both parents be natural-born Americans. And the reason is clear: Anyone whose parents are not born in America raises the very real specter of divided loyalties.”

    What happened to the requirement that the parents be “citizens” of America, not natural born citizens? That of course, for the umpteenth time, leaves out Barry, whose father was never an American citizen…ever. Unless someone wants to re-school me on this, there is no requirement to be a natural born citizen that requires natural born citizen parents. If that were true there would never have been any natural born citizens, which, by the way, most Americans are.

    This ought not to be so impossibly complicated.

    If I messed something up here please forgive me, I plead “old”.

    1. Trump appears to have abandoned his announced agenda to investigate the ineligibility of obama to sit in the White House. With that seeming decision on his part, the enormous well of support for his candidacy has abandoned him.


      I believe I am correct, regarding ‘natural born parents’: In order for a child, born on U S. soil, to be a ‘natural born citizen’, his or her parents must either have been citizens at birth, OR, ‘naturalized’ citizens at the time of the child’s birth. Neither citizens at birth nor ‘Naturalized’ citizens have any divided loyalties that so concerned the Founding Fathers.

      Donald Trump’s Father was a U. S. citizen, but his Mother was born in Scotland . However, she became a ‘naturalized’ citizen before Donald was born. He is a ‘natural born citizen.’
