DESPITE CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION REVEALING FORGERIES
by Sharon Rondeau
Kelly had just run a 2008 clip of Hillary Clinton having been questioned by CBS News’s Steve Kroft as to whether or not she believed Obama was a Muslim. Clinton had vehemently denied the allegation, stating that there was no evidence to support the claim.
Speaking about presidential candidate Donald Trump today, Kelly said to Kurtz that Trump may now be avoiding the “birther” issue, to which Kurtz then made his assertion that there was no doubt that Obama was born in Hawaii.
It is generally understood that the presidential requirement contained in Article II, Section 1, clause 5 of “natural born Citizen” means that the candidate must have been born in the United States. However, historical precedent shows that the citizenship of the parents carried more weight than the physical place of birth.
Children of foreign diplomats born in the U.S. are not considered U.S. citizens, while children born overseas to U.S. military parents are unquestionably U.S. citizens.
Early in 2011, when Trump was considering a run for the presidency, he publicly called for Obama to release his “long-form” birth certificate to prove that he was born within the United States and presumably eligible to occupy the White House.
On April 27, 2011, the White House released an image purported to be Obama’s long-form birth certificate bearing the name of the doctor who delivered him, the mother’s signature, the name of the registrar whose stamp appeared on the record, the names and birthplaces of both parents, and other details not present on the “short-form” birth certificate released on the Internet by an unknown party on June 12, 2008.
Obama’s claimed father is Barack Hussein Obama Sr., who was reportedly already married when he allegedly married Stanley Ann Dunham on February 2, 1961 in a private ceremony to which there appear to have been no witnesses.
Kelly, Bill O’Reilly, Heather Nauert, and former FNC co-anchor Alisyn Camerota have all defended Obama’s claim to a Hawaii birth as conclusive.
Major media has refused to report that a criminal investigation conducted by the Maricopa County Cold Case Posse over the last four years found after six months of examination that both the long-form birth certificate image and Obama’s Selective Service registration form are “computer-generated forgeries.” On March 1, 2012, posse lead investigator Michael Zullo and Arpaio gave a press conference during which they released the findings and called upon the media to investigate independently.
The media refused, and following a second press conference wherein the two called upon Congress to investigate, the response was silence.
Zullo stated unequivocally last year that “There was no birth in Hawaii for Obama.”
Many have speculated that Obama is both foreign-born and a Muslim, citing his policies and apparent affinity for Islamic peoples.
Some believe that Obama could in fact be an illegal alien. During the 2008 election cycle, former New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson described Obama as “an immigrant.”
Late in 2013, Zullo announced that he and Arpaio were readying to present the evidence they had gathered over a then-two-year period in March 2014. However, unexpected new evidence related to the investigation lengthened the process substantially.
Zullo and radio show host Carl Gallups have pledged to make the information, which Zullo has described as “gut-wrenching,” available to the public at the proper time.
Gallups has said that Obama will be found to have been ineligible to serve when the truth emerges.
