(Jan. 29, 2019) — In response to a January 25 tweet from Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi floating the possibility of Russian president Vladimir Putin “having” damaging information on President Donald Trump, Fox News contributor Mollie Hemingway on Saturday tweeted, “Donald Trump rightly received major media pushback for advancing a conspiracy theory about Obama’s birthplace. Nancy Pelosi is pushing an equally unhinged conspiracy theory and receiving *no* media pushback. Because many media push the same conspiracy theory.”

Hemingway is senior editor at The Federalist and a frequent media commentator.  Her tweet generated a number of responses about “conspiracy theories” and Pelosi, among others.

One Twitter user wrote, “Still wonder why Obama’s birth certificate is sealed? and why both him and his wife were disbarred from being lawyers?” which generated the response of “You realize bar admissions are public record right?”

In early 2011, Trump openly raised the question of Barack Hussein Obama’s presidential eligibility amid criticism that he had not released his “long-form” birth certificate proving his birth in the United States. 

Beginning in 2007 when Obama announced his presidential bid, many Americans questioned his eligibility as a result of mainstream reports stating he was born in Kenya or Indonesia and not Hawaii, as he later claimed.

As Trump considered a run for the presidency himself, he challenged the White House to release Obama’s detailed birth certificate, stressing that if Obama was born outside of the United States, he was ineligible to serve because of the U.S. Constitution’s requirement that the chief executive be a “natural born Citizen.”

In June 2008, the Obama campaign released what it said was Obama’s “birth certificate” known as the “short-form,” claiming it was produced by the Hawaii Department of Health (HDOH) and the only birth record publicly available.  Shortly after its release, a number of graphics experts declared it a forgery.

On April 27, 2011, in apparent response to Trump’s public demands, the White House released what it said was a scan of a certified copy of Obama’s “long-form” birth certificate to considerable media fanfare. However, within hours, the image was deemed a hastily-crafted forgery, a claim later supported by a 5+-year criminal investigation carried out under the authority of the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office (MCSO).

On March 1, 2012, lead investigator Mike Zullo, a former detective, announced that probable cause existed to believe the image is a “computer-generated forgery.”  Zullo’s team additionally found Obama’s Selective Service registration form to be fraudulent, Zullo reported at the presser.  The FBI and the media refused to investigate the findings.

In an apparent effort to deflect from the crimes Zullo was uncovering during the investigation, the media created the moniker of “birther” to ridicule anyone questioning Obama’s public birth narrative.  The term has persisted in the public lexicon and often accompanied by the adjective “racist.”

More recently, the term has been applied to those questioning whether or not Sen. Ted Cruz, Sen. Marco Rubio, and more recently, Sen. Kamala Harris, are eligible to the presidency given their individual birth narratives.

Cruz was born in Canada to a Cuban-citizen father and presumed U.S.-citizen mother, while Rubio and Harris, both born in the United States, were nevertheless children of legal immigrants who had not acquired U.S. citizenship.

Harris declared herself a presidential candidate on January 21 and officially opened her campaign Sunday with a rally in Oakland, CA, where she was born on October 20, 1964. In her initial remarks to her supporters, Harris pointed out that she was born not far from where she stood and that both of her parents, her mother from India and her father from Jamaica, were active in the American civil rights movement.

As she has on her Senate and presidential campaign websites, Harris gave the impression that she and her sister were raised in Oakland, while in actuality, at age 7 following her parents’ divorce, Harris and her sister left the country with their mother to live in Canada.

Harris attended Canadian schools, graduating from Westmount High School in a Montréal suburb.

Beginning in 1991, Obama’s biography published by his then-literary agent stated that he was “born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia and Hawaii.”  In April 2007, the biography was altered to say that he was “born in Hawaii.”

In 2008, Obama’s wife Michelle described Kenya as her husband’s “home country.”  However, in a book published in November, she directed anger at Trump for “the ‘xenophobic’ claims that her husband, former President Obama, was not actually born in America,” The Hill reported, using the term “birther.”

Since Obama left office, many left-leaning commentators have invoked Trump’s “birther” statements dating back to 2011.  Hemingway’s tweet is a departure from that trend, as she is solidly on the political right.  To date, no one in the major media has discussed the conclusions Zullo announced in December 2016, when he said in a final press conference that two forensic analysts hired to analyze the long-form image concurred with his conclusions that it could not have originated with a real, paper document.

Zullo has declared Obama’s life narrative “phony,” bolstered by the claim of an “open secret” two U.S. intelligence agents related to him that Obama was not born in the United States and is therefore ineligible to have served as president.

Last summer, Obama described himself as “from Kenya.”

In multiple interviews throughout the investigation, Zullo claimed the media has practiced “gaslighting” in regard to the Obama birth certificate issue, a statement reiterated by one of Hemingway’s Twitter responders on Monday.

  1. Alexander, I am all for giving credit to the many patriots who did their best to expose the many lies and inconsistencies of aka Obama’s identity fraud and phony birth narrative. And Orly Taitz was definitely a courageous and tireless leader in that regard. With that said, I am not sure as to who did what exactly when. But, Susan Daniels in particular and Neil Sankey also were instrumental in exposing the SSN fraud.

  2. Mr. Butcher, it is also my understanding that Obama had to be an Indonesian citizen AND also a Muslim to attend the specific school we know he attended while living in Indonesia. Indonesia did not allow dual citizenship. So if we follow the bouncing ball: Obama, actually real name Soetoro, later came to the United States and 1. Changed his name legally? and 2. Became an American citizen? Really? Hmmmm. So much we don’t know, but the media refuses to investigate then or now and actually covers for the fraud and usurper. Of course our so-called representatives and the courts were always in on the scam. Why no one will do anything about the issue, I think has to do with nefarious powers to be that have threatened or blackmailed many who had the real ability to expose the truth. The beat goes on.

  3. Can anyone clear this up for me? Obamas’ mother married an Indonesian and moved to
    Indonesia with little Barack in tow. To get him in school she had to change his name. This resulted in his being changed to Barry Soetoro, and allowed his enrollment in school.
    The mother then returned to Hawaii and Barry entered school there. Later on Barry went to the USA and more schooling. Did Barry operate under an alias Barack Obama while in the USA including his Senatorial and Presidential Bids?
    When and where did he change his name back to Barack Hussein Obama Jr?

  4. Regarding the book “dust jacket” statement/rumor/allegation circulated from time to time as evidence: I purchased years ago a first edition copy of Obama’s book with dust jacket from multiple sources. Per the book copies I own and from my other research over the years about Obama’s early life narrative, I believe that statement about the dust jacket of Obama’s book reports he was born in Kenya is Obot disinformation and “strawman” type statement that can easily be proved false and designed to make our side look totally wrong using the “false in one, false in all” type argument. The Obots frequently put out false information to mislead and discredit the side of we Constitutionalists in the battle over Obama’s lack of constitutional presidential eligibility. Obama was not a “natural born Citizen” no matter where he was born because his father was never a U.S. Citizen, not even an immigrant to the USA. Now the statement that Obama was born in Kenya is in Obama’s book’s bio put out by his book agent from 1991 to about the spring of 2017, as I reall. That is true. But not the “dust jacket” claim. That is not true per my research. Again see this collection of verified statements by many including Obama himself indicating Obama II not born in the USA:

  5. All these so called orgs and societies refused to step forward in 2008 to support and defend the national security presidential eligibility clause, natural born Citizen. The board’s of all these societies alleging their mission was to support and defend the constitutional republic took a pass on this because they were in cahoots with the establishment and other wings of the Republican Party which wanted to run the likes of John McCain and Ted Cruz and others in their stable who had constitutional eligibility issues. For visitors to this article, see my collection of the many Obama family members, associates, Kenyan government officials, and others who before Obama openly sought the Presidency which reported Barack Hussein Obama II was born in Kenya. This was not a conspiracy but instead was a result of Obama himself and the Hillary Clinton campaign bring forth many of these facts. Now the media and all the DC establishment talking heads want to re-write history about what actually happened in the 2008 election cycle. See these facts re Obama and his early life narrative that he and others in his circles put forward before he openly decided to run for President and CinC: #MollieHemingway #Federalist #ObamaNotaNaturalBornCitizen

  6. “We the people” (what remained of them) MUST DEMAND THE FULL EXPOSURE of the entire 2008-2016 usurpation! How can you expose ineligibility of Kamala Harris if you evade the similar ineligibility of the four 2016 repooplican contenders?! If you evade of the 2008-2016 Obama’s ineligibility and of the 2008 McCain’s ineligibility (born at the Panama hospital)?

    How can you expose ineligibility of Kamala Harris not exposing both treasonous “parties” guilty in the promotion of the above impostors?! First join a truly opposition party which fights for the exposure ( and dismantle other parties guilty in treason!

    They are here to nullify the Constitution by deliberately replicating its violation into the face! By making the Constitution irrelevant before our eyes!

  7. Regardless of WHERE Obama was born, and possibly we will never know for sure…the crux of the matter is that Obama was NOT a natural born citizen because of his purported father, who was NEVER a U.S. Citizen. That alone should have disqualified him from becoming POTUS, according to Article ll, Section 1, Clause 5 of out Constitution. Born in Kenya or wherever would only have been icing on the cake. Sadly, we are seeing history repeat itself, and it appears Karmala Harris, also NOT a natural born citizen, is going full speed ahead into the campaign. My opinion is that WE THE PEOPLE must demand that she be exposed as ineligible for President…it may be the only way to stop this Dem socialist!

  8. At some point, in a young American boy’s life, he becomes acutely conscience of his responsibility to register for the draft on his 18th birthday.
    It is, arguably, the one drastic legal difference between a young man and a young woman during the ages of 12-18: the young man must sign-up to go off to war.
    It’s called a “Rite-of-Passage” and young men take it seriously, very seriously, because they’ve known for years it’s a Federal Offense if one cops-out or gives false information on the Draft Registration form.
    Apparently Obama, aka Barry Soetoro, failed to heed the memo that every boy got when born in the USA and, thanks to our corrupt (incompetent?) US Attorney Generals, Obama escaped the wrath of the law, crashing down upon him, for being a low-life-cheap-suit-liar who deserves to spend the remaining years of his worthless life in a cage down in GITMO.


  9. The coverup of Barry Soetoro (aka Barack Hussein Obama) by the media,, FBI and CIA is the start of major corruption in our intelligence agencies and the loss of an honest/unbiased Free Press. If the truth was told about Barry Soetoro our country would not be in the mess it is in today; Mueller Investigation.

  10. 1) The statement “If Obama was born outside of the United States, he was ineligible to serve because of the U.S. Constitution’s requirement that the chief executive be a <>” – is obfuscating and inaccurate. The accurate statement must be “If Obama was born outside of the United States, or to non-US citizens parents, he is ineligible…” Officially Obama was born to non-US citizens parents – thus ineligible since day one!

    2) There are more criminal components of Obama’s imposture than the mentioned in this review. His SS# number of Connecticut was illegal belonging to a deceased person. This and many other incriminating evidence were obtained by Dr. Taitz, which tried to report it to the 2012 repooplican convention, but was banned (along with Sheriff Arpaio). Dr. Taitz was a pioneer in exposure of the Obama’s imposture since 2008, yet her name is omitted in this and other reviews on attempt to expose the imposture: I guess why…

    As a conclusion, there is nothing better than the words by Vladimir Bujkovksy: “It’s worse than a conspiracy – it’s consensus” (of provocateurs and ignoramuses).
