Fox News Program Host: “Did You Ever See a Long-Form?”

“I’M JUST ASKIN’ YA”

by Sharon Rondeau

(Jan. 8, 2018) — On Saturday evening’s edition of FNC’s “Justice with Judge Jeanine,” former Westchester County, NY District Attorney and judge Jeanine Pirro asked one of her guests whether or not he had “ever seen a ‘long-form,'” undoubtedly referring to the “long-form birth certificate” of former White House occupant Barack Hussein Obama.

Pirro’s two guests for the segment, former Secret Service agent and former Republican Maryland congressional candidate Dan Bongino and former Bill Clinton staffer and current Democratic strategist David Goodfriend, were discussing the captioned “economic successes” of Trump’s first year in office when Goodfriend attempted to make the case that President Trump was “bonkers” for claiming that his Oval Office predecessor “was never a citizen.”

Article II, Section 1, clause 5 of the Constitution requires that the president be a “natural born Citizen,” which most Americans interpret to mean, at a minimum, “born in the United States.”  During Obama’s 2007-2008 presidential campaign, credible news reports stated his birthplace as Indonesia and Kenya, some of which were later altered to say that Obama was “born in Hawaii,” as he claims.

At 5:19 in the video clip from the show, Pirro vehemently but possibly unwittingly opened the line of conversation by telling Goodfriend that she thought it was “bonkers” that Obama had called Trump a “quasi-Adolph Hitler” in a speech in Chicago last month.

At 5:28, Goodfriend responded, “It’s almost as ‘bonkers’ as Donald Trump saying that Obama was never a citizen,” referencing Trump’s 2011 public demands for the Obama White House to release his “long-form,” or more detailed, birth certificate to prove his eligibility to serve as president and re-seek the office in 2012.

As has often been the case, Goodfriend conflated the term “citizen” with “natural born Citizen,” a distinction set forth in the Constitution only for the nation’s chief executive.  Article I states that members of the U.S. House of Representatives and U.S. Senate must be “citizens” and residents of the states whose citizens they represent in the Congress.

It is possible, through U.S. naturalization law, for an individual to be a U.S. citizen even if he or she was born in a foreign country, as in the case of parents serving in the U.S. military or in diplomatic service at the time of the birth.  Many U.S.-citizen births take place overseas even if a parent or parents are non-government employees residing in a foreign country provided that they meet U.S. residency and citizenship requirements in order to confer their U.S. citizenship to their child.

In the early months of 2011, prior to the release of the long-form birth certificate image, Trump had based his demand to see Obama’s original birth record on his belief that “If you are going to be president of the United States you have to be born in this country.”

In late 2010, then-newly-elected Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie pledged to locate Obama’s original birth record within state government “archives” but ultimately produced nothing.

Any serious discussion of Obama’s birthplace, and possibly by extension, his eligibility, has been considered off-limits by all mainstream media outlets, particularly after the “long-form” birth certificate image posted at whitehouse.gov on April 27, 2011 bearing his name was deemed a “computer-generated forgery” by a criminal investigative team working under the authority of then-Maricopa County Sheriff Joseph M. Arpaio.

Former New Jersey detective Mike Zullo, who then headed Arpaio’s “Cold Case Posse,” was the lead investigator on the case, which began four months after the image was released to the public with much fanfare and concluded in December 2016, as Arpaio was completing what would be his sixth and final term as Maricopa County sheriff.

At a press conference held on December 15, 2016, Zullo revealed that his conclusions that the long-form image is a “computer-generated forgery” were supported by two outside forensic analysts based on what were found to be “nine points of forgery” copied and lifted from the birth certificate of a woman born in Hawaii later in August 1961, the same month Obama purports to have been born at the Kapiolani Medical Center for Women & Children.

The media, including FNC, declined to report on Zullo’s final presser, and outlets such as the AP simply appeared to be relieved that the birth certificate probe would soon be “concluded.”

Early last month, December, Zullo noted that since the closure of the investigation a year before, when the “birth certificate” issue now arises in the media, it is almost always at the instigation of a left-leaning commentator.  “Why do they keep bringing this up?” he rhetorically asked “Freedom Friday” host Carl Gallups.

“Did you ever see a long-form?” Pirro fired back at Goodfriend in response to his “bonkers” claim about Trump.  “Are you being serious right now?” Goodfriend asked, laughing almost hysterically.  “I’m just askin’ ya,” Pirro twice stridently retorted as Bongino waited quietly to be brought back into the fray.

Goodfriend did not ultimately answer the question.

In extensive recent interviews, Zullo has indicated that the alleged paper copies of the “birth certificate” distributed to reporters before the unveiling of the PDF image nearly seven years ago were nothing more than photographs of the image which were found to have unexplained anomalies among them.

    I fear the public might be getting caught up in the wrong issue, that being whether or not Obama (if that’s his real name?) is a natural-born American citizen.If it is proven that Malcolm X, or any other American citizen, is his biological father, he would qualify under Article 5 of the Constitution. The issue I contend that disqualifies him as a legitimate president, is that he publicly asserted that a now proven falsified government document was legitimate proof of his birth. Falsifying a government document constitutes a felony, which automatically disqualifies him from serving in a presidential capacity. Pay attention to the words of Joe Arpaio and Mike Zullo, they’ve been on the right track from the beginning.

    “Judge” Pirro needs to be held accountable (among others at Fox) for letting Obama off the hook. In this case the judge “laughed off” Goodfriends” “are you serious” answer instead of holding his feet to the fire and demanding (like Dan Bongino) that Goodfriend answer the question – “Did you ever see a long form”? Instead she just laughed – Shameful (IMO).

    I am presently listening to local “conservative” talk radio. A few minutes ago the youngish host and his sidekick were discussing Oprah Winfrey’s interest in running for president. They decided she probably wouldn’t and a more appropriate black woman would be a qualified politician such as Kamala Harris or Mia Love, neither of whom is a natural born Citizen (both were born in the USA to alien parents).

    These guys claim to be knowledgeable political pundits and they haven’t the slightest clue about the Constitution’s presidential eligibility requirements. The host is a smart guy with reasonably good conservative instincts for a young person, so his clueless ignorance must stem from having gone through the leftist “education” / propaganda system. It’s disgusting how the left has perverted and weakened the foundations upon which our freedoms stand.

    Of course Obama isn’t a Natural born citizen, we have proven it over and over again that he is not. Liberals are delusional in their hysteria to debunk this and have tried to tar any attempt to get at the truth a ‘racist’. They LOVE their illegitimate pres.

    https://www.thepostemail.com/2014/05/20/wheresobamasbirthcertificate-returns-to-congress-to-talk-obama-birth-certificate-forgery/ = this 2014 article indicates that Judge Jeanine had received two Sherriff’s Kits and had not responded…wheresjeaninesbirthinvestigate?.

    Ignorance is power; from womb to tomb, from cradle to coffin, humans progress through life, many on a self-boarding train of pain, not knowing, and many actively refusing to know, their upcoming gauntlet of sorrow and setbacks.

    From Treason Queen Pelosi to The Whoreable Rep. Dent to Obama-puke drinker Goodfriend herein, ridicule and feigned ignorance are their only flimsy pickett-fences defences when confronted in public about anything-Obama-ID…using Soetoro-Obama II’s “presIDential-privacy” to intentionally rob The Peoples’ rightful inalienable presIDential-knowledge-property via “presIDential piracy”!

    Indictable Ignorance. Dark secrets avoiding the national beacon of laser light emitted from The P&E and other keyboard 1NF0 illuminaries.

    Knowledgeable private-citizens (The “Deplorables”) vs lying US government-citizens ( “The Indictables”).

    Who vetted Hillary’s rapes/raps/RICO criminal-hood and allowed her to go on the campaign trail instead of going to jail?

    ANSWER: Treason Queen Pelosi + her millions of minions called “US government-citizens”= A GANGSTER GARBAGE GOVERNMENT FOUNDED ON CELEBRATED IGNORANCE
    08-28-08- TODAY!

    I HAVE A DREAM in 2018 that the combined presIDential-KNOWLEDGE of TRUMP + ZULLO + RONDEAU + TAITZ + millions of Knowledge Patriots across America will result in the arrest and life-imprisonment of celebrity-criminals Barry-Valerie-Hillary et al for conspiring America’s historic take-over via planned and nationally-syndicated
    presIDential-IGNORANCE!

    But, in a way, statistically speaking, that is, the ratio is correct: 2 people who gets it and one who is so far out there that there’s no chance of their realizing that, for the past 10 years, they have been made a complete fool of by having accepted the lie that Obama was born in Hawaii; that Obama legally signed-up for the Selective Service; that “Obama’s” Social Security number was actually issued to Mr. “Obama”; and so on.
    It was, as to my understanding, a clear and concise question: did you, or anyone, for that manner, ever see the long form BIRTH CERTIFICATE of Barry Soetorro, aka “Obama”?
    I was represented by competent counsel in numerous Federal Courts all across our nation, only to be found that, as a “natural born citizen” AND a candidate for president in 2012, I had “no standing” whether Obama was ever properly vetted.
    Truth be told, I did “have standing” as to whether my opponent was legally qualified to be on the ballot.
    As to whether David Goodfriend is really as naive and stupid as he expounds to be is anybody’s guess. I tend to lean on the side he really is as stupid as he pretends to be, if we were to take him at his word.
    Just being polite,
    OPOVV
