“DISTRACTION:” SAME EXCUSE AS WITH FORGERY ON WHITE HOUSE WEBSITE
by Sharon Rondeau
In late 2011, the Obama regime removed terms referencing Islamic terrorism from FBI training materials and those of the greater Justice Department, and a distinguished officer’s career was ruined for having taught an Army-approved course utilizing those terms.
Without providing any examples, Obama constantly defies U.S. history by claiming that “Muslims built the very fabric of our nation.” While visiting a Baltimore mosque in February against the advice of the FBI, Obama claimed that “Muslim Americans keep us safe.”
According to WND, “The mosque is affiliated with the Islamic Society of North America or ISNA, which has its own sordid history. ISNA was started by members of the international Muslim Brotherhood in the 1980s. The Brotherhood, founded in Egypt in 1928, is banned in many countries as an extremist organization.”
During a 2008 ABC News interview, Obama claimed Islam as “his” faith before the interviewer quickly said, “Your Christian faith” in an apparent correction.
Those embracing faiths other than “Muslim” normally do not refer to themselves as “Christian-American” or “Jewish-American” as an ethnic mix. The hyphenated term is normally used to indicate an American with a particular heritage from another country, such as “Swedish-American.”
Since fumbling his oath of office on January 20, 2009, requiring it to be re-taken the following day in virtual privacy, Obama has promised “transparency” as a governing principle. “My Administration is committed to creating an unprecedented level of openness in Government,” he pledged on the White House website.
And while the Justice Department, in today’s reversal, claimed to favor “transparency” by releasing the unredacted June 12 911 call, it has allowed a forgery to remain on the White House website, where it was uploaded on April 27, 2011 to represent Obama’s “long-form” birth certificate presumably to prove that he was born in the United States.
Article II, Section 1, clause 5 of the United States Constitution requires that the president and commander-in-chief be a “natural born Citizen.” Obama claims a birth in Hawaii on August 4, 1961 to a non-U.S.-citizen father who was already married in Kenya and a U.S.-citizen mother.
In the months leading up to the release of the image, Donald Trump, now the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, had publicly called for Obama to prove that he was born in the United States, as he claimed.
On the day the long-form image was released, then-Communications Director Dan Pfeiffer claimed that “Obama believed the distraction over his birth certificate wasn’t good for the country, he requested the long form version…”
On March 1, 2012, Maricopa County, AZ Sheriff Joseph Arpaio and his Cold Case Posse, which had spent approximately six months analyzing and investigating the origins of the image, declared the long-form birth certificate and Obama’s purported Selective Service registration form “computer-generated forgeries.”
Instead of launching their own investigations, even after a second press conference on July 17 of that year revealed that the standard of probable cause had been surpassed in regard to the forgery, the media attacked Arpaio and Cold Case Posse lead investigator Michael Zullo.
Since the forgery was posted, a terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya killed four Americans and wounded ten more, with the Obama regime falsely claiming the cause to be an obscure internet video until it was forced to admit that Islamic terrorists had attacked the compound where U.S. Ambassador to Libya J. Christopher Stevens and three other public servants were killed.
In interview in May 2013, Zullo told The Post & Email that had an independent investigation been launched into the posse’s findings, “Benghazi might never have happened.”
Regarding the forgery on Monday, “Nobody wants to talk about it,” Arpaio said.
Ten months after Obama took office, a U.S. Army psychiatrist shouted “Allahu Akbar!” then killed 12 and injured more after pledging allegiance to Islam. The regime stubbornly called the horrific incident “workplace violence” until last year, when it was reclassified as a terrorist attack.
Between 2009 and 2011, the “Fast & Furious” gunrunning operation killed U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry and several hundred Mexicans after guns were knowingly transferred to Mexican drug cartel members by the ATF.
Not 48 hours after the Orlando shootings, Obama called “radical Islam” a “political distraction.” In the aftermath, Trump and others repeatedly criticized the Obama regime for choosing not to invoke the term “radical Islam” in describing the killer’s motive for the attack.
After a black man, Freddie Gray, died following a time in police custody in Baltimore, Obama called the ensuing riots a “distraction from legitimate questions about police conduct in communities of color.”
This writer is revolted by the myriad mass shootings and loss of life which have taken place in the U.S. over the last eight years, whether or not they were motivated by Islamic radicalism and asks: Had Congress taken Arpaio’s plea to investigate the origins of the long-form birth certificate image seriously, how many more people, our fellow Americans, would be alive or uninjured today?
