Congresswoman Invokes “Birther Movement” Against Trump


by Sharon Rondeau

(Feb. 27, 2019) — During testimony on Wednesday by former Trump personal attorney Michael Cohen to the House Oversight & Reform Committee, freshman congresswoman Ayanna Pressley (D-MA7) faulted Trump for being a “racist” as well as promoting the “birther movement.”

New to Congress in 2019, Pressley does not have a photo posted on her website as of this writing.

The committee heard Cohen testify for nearly all of Wednesday, during which Cohen attempted to paint the picture of a scheming, egotistic CEO who committed financial crimes both before and after he took office.

Early in 2011, while considering challenging Barack Hussein Obama for the presidency in 2012, Trump publicly verbalized questions about Obama’s constitutional eligibility for the presidency given that mainstream reports had frequently said he was “born in Kenya” or “born in Indonesia” in the fairly recent past.

The then-businessman and chief executive of The Trump Organization demanded that the Obama White House release Obama’s “long-form” birth certificate to prove that he was born in Hawaii, as Obama has claimed.

Trump was subsequently labeled the leader of “the birthers,” referring to anyone who questioned the several versions of Obama’s life narrative.

Several months later, on April 27, 2011, the White House released what it said was a scan of a certified copy of Obama’s “long-form” birth certificate allegedly obtained from the Hawaii Department of Health (HDOH).  Within hours of its posting, several published experts declared the image a forgery, prompting a criminal investigation by the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office (MCSO).

Although virtually unreported by the mainstream media, the MCSO’s 5+-year probe not only declared the birth certificate image a forgery, but also Obama’s purported Selective Service registration form.

At a third and final press conference in December 2016, lead investigator Mike Zullo revealed that two forensics experts reached very similar conclusions in regard to the birth certificate image and had documented their findings in formal reports.

The FBI has not investigated the alleged crimes to the public’s knowledge.

In 2009, an FBI agent from the New Haven, CT office insisted Obama was eligible given his alleged birth in Hawaii, but last summer, Zullo said that two U.S. intelligence agents informed him that it is “an open secret” that Obama was born outside of the U.S.

Article II, Section 1, clause 5 of the U.S. Constitution requires the president to be a “natural born Citizen.”

On February 13, The Post & Email contacted the Oversight Committee via its website to request an investigation.  Thus far, there has been no response.

Cohen’s closing statement, which came just after 5:00 p.m. EST, was arguably political.  Addressing himself to Trump, he said a president should not denigrate veterans, separate children from their parents, or “cozy up” to America’s adversaries.  He did not elaborate.

    Tom Arnold, I just read your book “The Sick Treasonous Truth surrounding Barack Hussein Obama”. I thought it was very well written and, as you say on the book’s back cover, “easy to read.” I learned some things that I did not know. Thank you for the additional information found in the book. I give your book five Stars *****. Excellent historical record of our nation’s second usurper of the presidency. I thank you for making a significant contribution to the national effort to bring Obama to justice and to expose many of our public officials as perpetrators of misprision of treason and felony.

    To: Tom Polhaus (re: this is my respectful response to your 2-28-2019, 1:47 pm, comment).
    Because, as Donald J Trump said, “Obama” was “BORN IN THE UNITED STATES, PERIOD!”
    Just kidding, of course. We, those of us who are proud “Birthers,” know THE SICK TREASONOUS TRUTH SURROUNDING BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA!
    He, “Obama,” aka Soetoro Soebarkah, or whatever, absolutely was NOT born in the United States, and was/is and forever will be an UNDOCUMENTED, ARAB-AMERICAN (as opposed to Black), MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE, WITH FOREIGN ALLEGIANCES (and domestically, the CIA!), DUAL CITIZEN, CONSTITUTIONALLY INELIGIBLE, USURPER OF THE AMERICAN PRESIDENCY AND COMMAND OF OUR COUNTRY’S ARMED FORCES.
    I’ll bet my life on it. Thomas W Arnold,

    I should not have to rewrite my abbreviated dissertation on the SR 511 scam to please one commenter. I thought my words rang true for comprehension. If necessary, please re-read my original abbreviated comment and tell me exactly where I failed. To me, you repeated the same thoughts that I conveyed in my short version. I have a more in-depth 1592-word longer version with a step-by-step explanation, but why use up so much bandwidth on this website without being able to convert to PDF (Portable Document Format).

    After the dust-up between Congressman Mark Meadows and Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib at yesterday’s hearing, it has been pointed out that Meadows made “birther” comments about ‘sending Obama back to Kenya’ in 2012.

    Wouldn’t now be a good time for Zullo to start sending the evidence from the last press conference out to members of Congress? Why the wait?

    Meadows apologized back in 2012 but wouldn’t it be good if he could point out his vindication?

    You misread the 2008 Sen. Res. 511 sir (Nikita’s_UN_Shoe) and missed the greatest grotesque of it all which is that against their will, inadvertently, they rephrased the definition of the natural born from the Law of Nation as it has always been understood: born to citizen parents on the soil.

    It was a grotesque slip of the pen and burst of their sub-conscience which betrayed their knowledge of the true definition! They were so focused on the legitimizing McCain (not born on the soil), that they did not even care that that Obama by his official bio was not born to both citizen parents. Such a blunder! See

    One’s race is not a license to commit crimes and then to escape criticism for doing so. I have said that before. Obama’s race has nothing to do with the fact that he usurped the presidency, by fraud, during time of war. He should not be given a pass just because he happens to be a person of color. Obama broke the law. The so called “first Black President”, most likely isn’t Black at all, but Indonesian. Secondly, he has never been the bona-fide “President”. See: “There is no ‘President’ Obama” here: It is NOT racist, for a Caucasian to expect that a person of color be brought to Justice for crimes committed by them. The Congress and the powers that be have, to date, failed to investigate very serious charges made against him by many people, including Lt.Commander Walter F. Fitzpatrick,III, Donald Trump,Sr., Admiral James “Ace Lyons, Jr. (God rest his soul), myself and many others. Obama usurped the Presidency and President Trump is righteous to have brought up the fact that Obama is a fraud.

    Not even trying to evade the topic of the Obama imposture, re-bring it with the slurring term “birther” is an unprecedented cynicism and arrogance in itself. Such a gross cynicism and arrogance of the Trump’s accusers is matched only with the similarly gross humiliation, lack of dignity, and compliance of Trump himself. Trump’s attackers are absolutely sure that he would not dare to rebuff them by exposing the very real crime of imposture, “too big to ever acknowledge” (Bob68).

    Trump’s accusers go on with their unprecedented bluff absolutely sure that their poker opponent Trump would never demand them to open their hand. The ugly farce of America discrediting the humanity just goes on and on…

    The freshmen Congress’ youth and inexperiences are showing every time they open their mouths.

    I do not dwell on the forged long-form birth certificate (LFBC) proffered by the putative White House administration on April 27, 2011. Instead, I concentrate on the origins of and the true meaning of the phrase “natural born Citizen” as found in the only location of the U.S. Constitution – Article II, Section 1, Clause 5. While the LFBC should not be totally discounted in an effort to keep up the fight against the bogus aka Obama and his enablers, too much conversation has been spent on the lead-up to the 2012 presidential election and the bogus LFBC.

    Several attempts to alter or otherwise remove the natural born Citizen phrase from the U.S. Constitution through the Amendment process occurred prior to the 2012 election, but were dismal failures. See here: The UniParty realized this change to the U.S. Constitution was unattainable through the Amendment process, so the UniParty commenced to distort the meaning of natural born Citizen by using that same phrase, “natural born Citizen”, as found in the U.S.A.’s first naturalization law, as the momentum to promote SR 511. This ruse had a two-fold purpose: (1.) to define “natural born Citizen” contrary to the Founding Fathers’ meaning and (2.) to convince their constituents that they were focusing on McCain’s eligibility, but in actuality were using it to Obama’s advantage.

    The desired results of this SR 511 were achieved by the UniParty who underhandedly defined the meaning of a natural born citizen (NBC) as any person who is born in the United States of America – which is not the true meaning of NBC – without regard to the citizenship of the person’s parents. The U.S. Senate spent the time and effort to focus on McCain’s presidential eligibility – which he isn’t – to distract from aka Obama’s ineligibility. By focusing on McCain, the implied eligibility was that anyone born in the United States is eligible for the office of the presidency. Otherwise, aka Obama’s own eligibility would have been scrutinized with a separate resolution and subsequent investigation as to his nativity origin and presidential eligibility.

    This behind-the-scenes definition of an NBC was instilled into the Congressional Research Service documentation database with additional help from a couple of individuals from a noted university. That same “born in the U.S.A.” then became a talking-point boilerplate, i.e. ‘a canned response’, to be used by all of the Congressional Members who had to answer their constituents when questioned about aka Obama’s presidential eligibility.

    Notice the eerie silence from Congress on any more attempts to alter the natural born Citizenship requirement for eligibility to the presidency? Congress does not need to make those attempts anymore, because they succeeded with SR 511.

    U.S. Senator Cruz’s putative eligibility could be classified under the McCain ruse.
