WITHOUT MENTIONING FRAUDULENT BIRTH CERTIFICATE, LIFE NARRATIVE
by Sharon Rondeau
(Jan. 3, 2019) — In a discussion on FNC’s “The Five” on Thursday about incivility in politics, former Obama Deputy State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf became indignant when recalling that many “Republicans” had claimed that Barack Obama was “not actually born in America.”
The five co-hosts, led by guest co-host Dan Bongino, were discussing Rep. Hank Johnson’s recent comparison of Trump and the Republican Party to Adolf Hitler’s overtaking of the National Socialist Party in pre-World War II Germany.
Regular co-host Greg Gutfeld, who joined in the discussion, has more than once referred to Obama as “Kenyan-born,” a statement made by several mainstream media outlets prior to Obama’s successful 2008 presidential candidacy.
Those reports, including at least one which reported Obama as having been “born in Indonesia,” were altered after Obama entered the White House to say that he was “born in Hawaii.”
As has been the case since 2011, when a criminal investigation was opened into an image posted on the White House website said to represent Obama’s “long-form” birth certificate from Hawaii, none of the co-hosts invoked the investigation or its findings that the image is a “computer-generated forgery.”
According to lead investigator and former New Jersey detective Mike Zullo, senior-level officials have been briefed on the probe’s conclusions following more than five years of work. In a follow-up interview with radio host Bill Martinez, author and radio host Carl Gallups, who has been close to the birth certificate probe from the outset, stressed that the briefing provided to the administration was to a “powerful DC player.”
Early in 2011, then-businessman Donald Trump explored challenging Obama for the White House in 2012, which included expressing his doubts as to Obama’s constitutional eligibility to serve. Article II, Section 1, clause 5 of the U.S. Constitution requires the president and commander-in-chief of the military to be a “natural born Citizen,” meaning without any foreign allegiances.
For decades debate has been ongoing as to the exact meaning of the term, with some believing that a simple birth in the United States to parents of any citizenship is sufficient to confer “natural-born” status. Other scholars believe that the term of art indicates a higher level of citizenship and allegiance than that required of members of Congress, which is expressed simply as “a citizen.”
In an interview in August with Gallups, Zullo said that two sources within the U.S. intelligence community informed him that it is “an open secret” that Barack Obama was born outside of the United States and therefore could not meet the “born in the United States” aspect of the “natural born Citizen” requirement.
Nevertheless, Obama served two four-year terms in the White House, and anyone questioning his eligibility, inconsistent life narrative, or his wife’s stating that his “home country” is, in fact, “Kenya,” has been termed a “racist,” an adjective Harf readily utilized to express her indignation at what she saw as mean-spirited commentary about Barack and Michelle Obama while they were in the White House.
The mainstream media virtually ignored the presser, and the FBI never opened an investigation to the public’s knowledge. In a number of interviews last year, Zullo suggested that former CIA Director John Brennan was involved in the procuring of the image which Zullo has often said was posted “with the intent to deceive.”
Zullo has also indicated that, contrary to Obama’s insistence that he attended school in Hawaii at age 5, Obama was actually “in Indonesia” at that time.
Others besides Harf from the Obama regime have criticized anyone who questioned Obama’s birthplace but never mentioned the outcome of the investigation overseen by then-Maricopa County Sheriff Joseph Arpaio. The mainstream media has often followed suit, decrying the “birthers” and Trump as their “leader.”
Since leaving office, Brennan has been particularly antagonistic toward Trump, and former FBI director James Comey and other Obama-era officials appear determined to see him removed from or voted out of office. Some observers have suggested that fear of detection regarding the birth certificate and other Obama-era corruption is the motivation for their vitriol.
