AND WHERE WAS THE AP’S “VETTING” OF OBAMA?
by Sharon Rondeau
(Apr. 25, 2018) — An AP article published Wednesday states that the U.S. Senate, which is tasked by the Constitution with approving executive-branch cabinet nominees, is frustrated with “lax vetting” processes allegedly used by the Trump administration.
The article referred to Trump’s nomination of Dr. Ronny Jackson for Veterans Administration Secretary following the departure of David Shulkin, an Obama holdover, several weeks ago. On Tuesday, the Senate placed Jackson’s nomination consideration on hold amid allegations from unnamed individuals who reportedly approached Sen. Jon Tester’s (D-MT) office claiming that Jackson displayed improper workplace behavior while serving as the White House physician, a post Jackson has filled since 2013.
CBS News reported that Jackson has served “three presidents.”
The article fails to mention, however, that when a first-term, little-known U.S. Senator representing the state of Illinois decided to seek the presidency in 2007, his life narrative contained many inconsistencies which to this day remain unreconciled.
Barack Hussein Obama II claims a birth on August 4, 1961 at the Kapiolani Medical Center in Honolulu, HI, although the hospital has refused to confirm his claimed birth there. Obama’s birthplace was first reported by UPI to have occurred at the Queens Medical Center in Honolulu.
Just after entering the White House, a letter purportedly signed by Obama in which he termed the hospital “the place of my birth” was displayed on Kapiolani’s website for fundraising purposes. When questioned by a media outlet as to why the letter consisted of HTML blocks rather than a photograph of an actual, paper letter, the image was permanently obscured.
Obama has been said to have been “raised in the Kansas heartland” in 2008; “born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia and Hawaii” in a 1991 biography; born in Hawaii but living in Indonesia from age two through “the fifth grade” and later attending “public schools through high school” in Hawaii by the AP; and born in Hawaii but having been taken to Indonesia for a four-year period between the ages of 6 and 10, after which he allegedly returned to Hawaii, attending and graduating from the prestigious, private Punahou School.
A “short-form” birth certificate published on the internet on June 12, 2008 bearing the name “Barack Hussein Obama II” by an unidentified party has been found fraudulent by a number of examiners. Nearly three years later, a “long-form” birth certificate image posted on the White House’s official website was deemed a hastily-crafted forgery by several experts, with no expert coming forward to vouch for its authenticity.
The experts’ publicly-expressed opinions and reports led to the opening of a five-your criminal investigation which found the “long-form” image to be a “computer-generated forgery.” The investigator, Mike Zullo, and his team also concluded that the Selective Service registration form mailed to a number of FOI requesters beginning in 2008 is a “hard-copy forgery.”
Thousands of emails, letters, faxes and phone calls to U.S. Senators and members of the House of Representatives beginning in 2007 concerned about Obama’s constitutional eligibility to serve received form-letter responses or none at all, even as the American people attempted to “vet” a man with a mysterious history and whose wife called Kenya her husband’s “home country.”
Just prior to the 2008 presidential election, during a Spanish-speaking media interview with English translation, former New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson referred to Obama as “an immigrant.” It is well-known that Article II, Section 1, clause 5 of the U.S. Constitution requires the chief executive to be a “natural born Citizen,” which has always meant that immigrants, or naturalized citizens, cannot serve.
At least eight attempts in recent history have been launched in Congress to amend the Constitution to allow naturalized citizens to serve as president, thereby acknowledging that “immigrants,” such as former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and former Michigan Gov. Debbie Stabenow, cannot serve.
Also a matter of debate on his eligibility is Obama’s claimed father, who was never a U.S. citizen, with some legal scholars claiming that that fact alone disqualified Obama from seeking the Oval Office.
The Associated Press, in particular, has avoided reporting that during a December 15, 2016 press conference concluding the 5+-year probe of the long-form birth certificate image, lead investigator Mike Zullo revealed that two authoritative forensic analysts completed their own independent reviews of the image and reached very similar conclusions to his own.
Neither the AP nor any other major news outlet has investigated Zullo’s findings. Moreover, CNN appears to be on a campaign to discredit anyone, particularly those serving in the Trump administration currently, who has ever publicly questioned Obama’s origins. The technique, often compared to guidelines set forth in Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals,” focuses on an individual’s past as well as present actions, interviews, comments and other public statements in an effort to discredit and marginalize him or her.
At the conclusion of the December 2016 presser, then-Maricopa County Sheriff Joseph M. Arpaio, who delegated the birth certificate investigation to Zullo in 2011, said that the compiled evidence would be provided in its entirety to “federal authorities,” including information not yet released to the public.
Ironically, it was Donald Trump who in early 2011 raised serious questions about Obama’s constitutional eligibility, placing pressure on the White House to release the “long-form” birth certificate to show, at a minimum, that Obama was born in the United States or Hawaii, as he claims.
As is the case at present, Trump became the object of scorn, ridicule, exaggeration, and avoidance by the mainstream media, although with an occasional revival of the pejorative “birther” applied to him by The New York Times and other left-leaning outlets.
According to House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes last weekend, no specific “intelligence” supported the opening of an FBI counterintelligence investigation into the Trump campaign in 2016 which is ongoing. In a roundtable discussion hosted by Judicial Watch on Tuesday, Congressman Jim Jordan, a member of the “Freedom Caucus,” stated that he believes that Obama’s CIA director, John Brennan, hatched a plot in which then-FBI director James B. Comey would approach President Trump with the knowledge of the “salacious and unverified” “Russian dossier” information early last year, document it, and leak it to the press.
Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton went a step farther, contending that Obama himself was involved in a conspiracy to smear Trump during the 2016 presidential election. When that failed, the effort, some argue, has continued in an attempt to delegitimize Trump and remove him from office.
Brennan has admitted voting for a communist for president in 1976, and Comey is currently under investigation for allegedly leaking classified information to both his “good friend” Daniel Richman and, by extension, to the media and the public. Comey’s former FBI deputy, Andrew McCabe, was terminated in March and was recently referred to the U.S. Attorney for Washington, DC for criminal investigation.
Trump has questioned why Comey created memos of his telephone and in-person interactions with him but apparently not with Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama, particularly since Comey oversaw the “investigation” of Clinton’s use of a private, unauthorized and unsecure computer server located in her home while she served as Obama’s Secretary of State between 2009 and early 2013.
Despite controversial issues in her past such as the Whitewater and “Travelgate” probes, Clinton was approved by the Senate for Secretary of State on a 94-2 vote.
Comey was nominated by Obama as Robert S. Mueller III’s extended term as FBI director was concluding in 2013. Mueller is now leading the investigation into whether or not anyone in the Trump campaign “colluded” with Kremlin operatives to give Trump an advantage over Clinton in the election.
Many believe that the “Russia collusion” narrative was a false story planted by members of the Obama regime to sway voters away from Trump and toward Clinton, and later morphed into an effort to delegitimize and unseat the now-45th president of the United States.
At an event at the National Press Club in May 2014, Trump was asked whether or not he regretted raising the Obama “birth certificate” question in the public square, to which he responded with a resounding, “No.” Trump further expounded on his dual-premised theory as to why Obama’s past remains shrouded and contradictory: that Obama either falsely claimed to be a foreign national in order to qualify for student aid earmarked for that population for education in the United States; or that Obama truthfully did the same as a result of his foreign birth.
