IS THIS THE “BIG SURPRISE” PROMISED IN AUGUST?
by Sharon Rondeau
(Oct. 22, 2012) — In a telephone interview this morning on Fox & Friends, real estate magnate Donald Trump, who has been promising “a big surprise” in regard to Obama for months, stated that he will be releasing “something very, very big about Obama” this week, most likely on Wednesday.
Since speaking out about Obama’s failure to release a long-form birth certificate prior to April 27, 2011, Trump has been named “the de facto leader of the ‘birther’ movement,” but has not apologized for asking questions about the birth certificate Obama did release as well as his college applications. Trump has suggested that Obama might have received student aid intended for college enrollees from other countries.
Obama’s supporters and many members of the Republican Party have maintained that Obama is a “citizen” and therefore eligible to serve as president, but the U.S. Constitution requires the president to be a “natural born Citizen.” Scholarly essays on the topic indicate that the citizenship of the father or both parents is a determining factor in a child’s citizenship and whether or not he or she is considered “natural born.”
Some within Donald Trump’s Twitter feed have expressed anger or derision at the information Trump might release.
Today in Indiana, Atty. Orly Taitz is presenting evidence along with seven witnesses who claim that Obama’s Social Security number, long-form birth certificate, and identity are fraudulent. The results of an investigation completed by private investigator Susan Daniels concluding that Obama’s Social Security number could not have been assigned to him are included in the lawsuit being pursued today in the Marion County Superior Court.
Cold Case Posse lead investigator Mike Zullo has said that there is no evidence to support the claim that Obama was born in Hawaii or that his parents are who he has claimed them to be. There has been speculation that Obama’s real father is Frank Marshall Davis or Malcolm X. “He’s the only American president that has aliases,” Zullo said during an interview in September. Taitz has also claimed that Obama is using an alias, as documentation released by the U.S. State Department indicates that he was known as “Soebarkah.” Other documentation has shown his name to be “Barry Soetoro” while he was allegedly living in Indonesia between 1967 and 1971.
Will the information Trump releases impact Obama’s eligibility or the placement of his name on state ballots?
After Trump’s announcement will these “facts” be brought into question?
Update, 3:25 p.m. EDT: The website octsurpirse.com is reporting that it will make an announcement in just over three hours at the time of this update.
