The Muslim Brotherhood’s Man in the White House

Robert Spencer is the director of Jihad Watch and author of the New York Times bestsellers The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam (and the Crusades) and The Truth About Muhammad. His latest book, Arab Winter Comes to America: The Truth About the War We're In, is now available.


obama-egyptWhen the State Department announced early in October that it was cutting hundreds of millions in military and other aid to Egypt, it was yet another manifestation of Barack Obama’s unstinting support for the Muslim Brotherhood, a support that has already thrown Egypt back into the Russian orbit. The aid cut was essentially giving the Egyptian people a choice between Muslim Brotherhood rule and economic collapse. Nothing else could have been expected from Obama, who has been a Brotherhood man from the beginning.

Obama’s support for the Brotherhood goes back to the beginning of his presidency. He even invited Ingrid Mattson, then-president of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), to offer a prayer at the National Cathedral on his first Inauguration Day – despite the fact that ISNA has admitted its ties to the Brotherhood. The previous summer, federal prosecutors rejected a request from ISNA to remove its unindicted co-conspirator status. Obama didn’t ask Mattson to explain ISNA’s links to the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas. On the contrary: he sent his Senior Adviser Valerie Jarrett to be the keynote speaker at ISNA’s national convention in 2009.

Even worse, in April 2009, Obama appointed Arif Alikhan, the deputy mayor of Los Angeles, as Assistant Secretary for Policy Development at the Department of Homeland Security. Just two weeks before he received this appointment, Alikhan (who once called the jihad terror group Hizballah a “liberation movement”) participated in a fundraiser for the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC). Like ISNA, MPAC has links to the Muslim Brotherhood. In a book entitled In Fraternity: A Message to Muslims in America, coauthor Hassan Hathout, a former MPAC president, is identified as “a close disciple of the late Hassan al-Banna of Egypt.” The MPAC-linked magazine The Minaret spoke of Hassan Hathout’s closeness to al-Banna in a 1997 article: “My father would tell me that Hassan Hathout was a companion of Hassan al-Banna….Hassan Hathout would speak of al-Banna with such love and adoration; he would speak of a relationship not guided by politics or law but by a basic sense of human decency.”

Al-Banna, of course, was the founder of the Muslim Brotherhood, an admirer of Hitler and a leader of the movement to (in his words) “push the Jews into the sea.”

Terror researcher Steven Emerson’s Investigative Project has documented MPAC’s indefatigable and consistent opposition to virtually every domestic anti-terror initiative; its magazine The Minaret has dismissed key counterterror operations as part of “[t]he American crusade against Islam and Muslims.” For his part, while Alikhan was deputy mayor of Los Angeles, he blocked a Los Angeles Police Department project to assemble data about the ethnic makeup of mosques in the Los Angeles area. This was not an attempt to conduct surveillance of the mosques or monitor them in any way. LAPD Deputy Chief Michael P. Downing explained that it was actually an outreach program: “We want to know where the Pakistanis, Iranians and Chechens are so we can reach out to those communities.” But Alikhan and other Muslim leaders claimed that the project manifested racism and “Islamophobia,” and the LAPD ultimately discarded all plans to study the mosques.

And early in 2009, when the Muslim Brotherhood was still outlawed in Egypt, Obama met with its leaders. He made sure to invite Brotherhood leaders to attend his notorious speech to the Islamic world in Cairo in June 4, 2009, making it impossible for then-President Hosni Mubarak to attend the speech, since he would not appear with the leaders of the outlawed group.

Then on January 31, 2011, when the Mubarak regime was on the verge of falling in the Arab Spring uprising, a former U.S. Ambassador to Egypt, Frank Wisner, met secretly in Cairo with Issam El-Erian, a senior Brotherhood leader. That meeting came a week after a Mubarak government official announced the regime’s suspicions that Brotherhood and other opposition leaders were coordinating the Egyptian uprising with the Obama State Department.

Early in February, Obama’s Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper, tried to allay concerns about a Muslim Brotherhood takeover in Egypt by claiming, preposterously, that the group was “largely secular.” Although the subsequent torrent of ridicule compelled the Obama camp to issue a correction, the subtext of Clapper’s statement was clear: the Obama Administration had no problem with Muslim Brotherhood rule in Egypt, and was not only going to do nothing to stop it, but was going actively to enable it.

And so in June 2011, the Administration announced that it was going to establish formal ties with the Brotherhood. The U.S.’s special coordinator for transitions in the Middle East, William Taylor, announced in November 2011 that the U.S. would be “satisfied” with a Muslim Brotherhood victory in the Egyptian elections. In January 2012, Obama announced that he was speeding up the delivery of aid to Egypt, just as U.S. Deputy Secretary of State William Burns held talks with Brotherhood leaders – a move apparently calculated to demoralize the Brotherhood’s opposition in the Egyptian elections.

Not surprisingly, when Muslim Brotherhood candidate Mohamed Morsi was declared the winner of Egypt’s 2012 presidential election, Obama immediately called Morsi to congratulate him. Then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton hurried to Cairo to meet with Morsi in July 2012, as anti-Brotherhood protesters gathered outside the U.S. Embassy complex there. The Obama administration’s support for the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt had been so glaringly obvious that foes of the Brotherhood regime pelted her motorcade with tomatoes and shoes for delivering that country up to the rule of the Brotherhood. Protestors held signs reading “Message to Hillary: Egypt will never be Pakistan”; “To Hillary: Hamas will never rule Egypt” and “If you like the Ikhwan [Brotherhood], take them with you!”

Obama invited Morsi to visit the U.S., although by September 2012, when Morsi had called for the release of Sheikh Omar Abdel Rahman, the 1993 World Trade Center jihad attack plotter, as well as for restrictions on the freedom of speech, and persecution of Egyptian Christians had increased dramatically, Obama quietly canceled the proposed meeting.

Meanwhile, Obama’s foreign policy displayed a decided pro-Brotherhood orientation. Former U.S. prosecutor Andrew C. McCarthy has listed a great many strange collaborations between Obama’s State Department and Muslim Brotherhood organizations, including:

• Secretary Clinton personally intervened to reverse a Bush-administration ruling that barred Tariq Ramadan, grandson of the Brotherhood’s founder and son of one of its most influential early leaders, from entering the United States.

• The State Department collaborated with the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, a bloc of governments heavily influenced by the Brotherhood, in seeking to restrict American free-speech rights in deference to sharia proscriptions against negative criticism of Islam.

• The State Department excluded Israel, the world’s leading target of terrorism, from its “Global Counterterrorism Forum,” a group that brings the United States together with several Islamist governments, prominently including its co-chair, Turkey — which now finances Hamas and avidly supports the flotillas that seek to break Israel’s blockade of Hamas. At the forum’s kickoff, Secretary Clinton decried various terrorist attacks and groups; but she did not mention Hamas or attacks against Israel — in transparent deference to the Islamist governments, which echo the Brotherhood’s position that Hamas is not a terrorist organization and that attacks against Israel are not terrorism.

• The State Department and the Obama administration waived congressional restrictions in order to transfer $1.5 billion dollars in aid to Egypt after the Muslim Brotherhood’s victory in the parliamentary elections.

• The State Department and the Obama administration waived congressional restrictions in order to transfer millions of dollars in aid to the Palestinian territories notwithstanding that Gaza is ruled by the terrorist organization Hamas, the Muslim Brotherhood’s Palestinian branch.

• The State Department and the administration hosted a contingent from Egypt’s newly elected parliament that included not only Muslim Brotherhood members but a member of the Islamic Group (Gamaa al-Islamiyya), which is formally designated as a foreign terrorist organization. The State Department refused to provide Americans with information about the process by which it issued a visa to a member of a designated terrorist organization, about how the members of the Egyptian delegation were selected, or about what security procedures were followed before the delegation was allowed to enter our country.

Once in power in Egypt, the Brotherhood government drafted a new constitution, enshrining Islamic law as the highest law of the land, restricting the freedom of speech and denying equality of rights for women. The Associated Press reported that the  constitution reflected the “vision of the Islamists, with articles that rights activists, liberals and Christians fear will lead to restrictions on the rights of women and minorities and civil liberties in general.”

AP reported that the constitution’s wording gave the Muslim Brotherhood “the tool for insisting on stricter implementation of rulings of Shariah,” and that “a new article states that Egypt’s most respected Islamic institution, Al-Azhar, must be consulted on any matters related to Shariah, a measure critics fear will lead to oversight of legislation by clerics.”

Cairo’s Al-Azhar is the foremost exponent of Sunni orthodoxy. Its characterization of what constitutes that orthodoxy carries immense weight in the Islamic world. It hews to age-old formulations of Islamic law mandating second-class dhimmi status for non-Muslims, institutionalized discrimination against women, and sharp restrictions on the freedom of speech, particularly in regard to Islam. Al-Azhar’s having a role in the government of Egypt and its administration of Sharia meant the end of any remaining freedom in Egyptian society.

While forcing this constitution on Egyptians, the Morsi regime became increasingly brutal toward dissenters. In a move reminiscent of Communist governments, the Brotherhood regime had opposition leaders investigated for high treason. Morsi even tried to arrogate dictatorial powers for himself, although he backed off after protests. Huge crowds came out to protest against the Morsi regime – a clear indication that if Obama had backed the Brotherhood because he thought it represented the popular will of the vast majority of Egyptians, he was dead wrong. Yet as all this was happening, Hillary Clinton demonstrated how out of touch the Obama Administration was with what was really happening in Egypt when she said, according to Fox News, that “the U.S. must work with the international community and the people in Egypt to ensure that the revolution isn’t hijacked by extremists.”

The Arab Spring “revolution” was “hijacked by extremists” as soon as the Muslim Brotherhood regime took power. Yet as the turmoil in Egypt increased, Obama responded not by admonishing the Muslim Brotherhood regime to respect the human rights of all its citizens, but by shipping over twenty F-16 fighter jets to Egypt, as part of an aid package amounting to over a billion dollars. A Republican congressional aide noted at the time that “the Morsi-led Muslim Brotherhood government has not proven to be a partner for democracy as they had promised, given the recent attempted power grab.” The Obama Administration responded by downplaying the significance of the Brotherhood’s increasing authoritarianism, speaking blandly about “Egypt’s democratic transition and the need to move forward with a peaceful and inclusive transition that respects the rights of all Egyptians.”

It was no surprise last summer, then, when millions of Egyptians took to the streets to protest against the Brotherhood regime and it was suddenly and unexpectedly toppled from power, that numerous anti-Brotherhood protesters held signs accusing Obama of supporting terrorists. One foe of the Brotherhood made a music video including the lyrics: “Hey Obama, support the terrorism/Traitor like the Brotherhood members/Obama say it’s a coup/That’s not your business dirty man.” A protestor in Tahrir Square held up a sign saying, “Obama you jerk, Muslim Brotherhoods are killing the Egyptians.” Signs like that one became commonplace at anti-Morsi protests; another read, “Hey Obama, your bitch is our dictator.”

Yet as the anti-Muslim Brotherhood riots reached their peak, Obama responded by sending a group of American soldiers to Egypt to help with riot control.

As an Egyptian newspaper crowed about the influence of Muslim Brotherhood operatives within the Obama Administration, it was no surprise that Obama would want them in power in Egypt as well. By cutting off aid in October 2013, he was strong-arming the Egyptians until they would have no choice but to agree – or turn to the Russians, as Egypt’s military regime has recently said it might do. Egypt has been an American ally, but is now returning to the sphere of influence of a resurgent Russia – thanks to Barack Obama’s uncritical support for the Muslim Brotherhood.

Egypt, albeit imperfect, was a reliable and pivotal ally of the U.S. in the Middle East for three decades. With the Camp David Accords it kept an uneasy but unmistakable peace with Israel, while the Sadat and Mubarak regimes kept a lid on the Brotherhood and Salafist forces that were clamoring for Egypt to declare a new jihad against the Jewish State. Egypt’s unwillingness to go to war with Israel during that period stymied the anti-Israel bloodlust in neighboring Muslim countries as well, for Egypt’s size, position, and history give it a unique stature in the Islamic world.

All that is gone now. Egypt is on the way to renewing its alliance with Russia, which led it to mount two wars against Israel, in 1967 and 1973. Obama has alienated America’s allies and emboldened her enemies, all in a vain attempt to appease a group that was never going to be a friend of the U.S. in the first place. If he didn’t have so many other blots on his record, this could be the most dangerous aspect of his legacy.

    The Trojans defeated Troy with the Trojan Horse. History will see Obama as the Meccan Camel.

    Not only has Obama made it clear that he supports, unflinchingly, Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood, he has tacitly endorsed their brutal persecution of Christians in Egypt. There is no justification for Obama’s loyalty to these ruthless psychpathic murderers.

    • m4253y

      “There is no justification for Obama’s loyalty to these ruthless psychpathic (sic) murderers”…wrong!

          The young chicken shitz that took over at Breitbart were hand delivered evidence proving that Obama’s April 27th, 2011 birth document to be a FORGERY. They were also shown rock solid proof that Obama fraudulently registered with the Selective Service in 2008 not 1980 and the REFUSED to report any of it. Cowards, I think they were thinking about their fearless leader’s unusual death.

          • smrstrauss

            The reason is that (1) they do not believe that Obama’s birth certificate is forged—along with Ann Coulter, Glenn Beck, Bill O’Reilly and the National Review, and Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan, Michelle Bachmann, Gingrich and Santorum and Huckabee; and (2) Obama’s Selective Service card was NOT posted by Obama. It was posted by a birther, who, duh, forged it.

    Hey, we FREELY voted this man in to power. TWICE. It is not like the people cannot know what he is up to or what he is doing. So how do we explain this? There are millions of Americans, possibly a majority, who hate our culture and civilization. We are fractured along racial, religious, monetary, educational, ethnic, and sex lines. The socialist know how to exploit this. Barach Hussein Obama may or may not be a Muslim, but he staunchly supports them, as he support the communist. It seems he supports anything that is anti-Western Civilization. Reverend Wright, Bill Ayers, and Frank Marshal Davis are some of his mentors and cronies. You can tell a lot about a man by who he associates with. Barach Hussein Obama hates this country. But what stuns me is the number of Americans who do to. They share his goals. They share his hate.

  • sendtheclunkerbacktochicago

    I will continue to repeat myself here at Frontpage. Obama is the Fraud in Chief and there is the most protected “sleeper cell” in all of America residing right there at 1600 Penn Avenue. This is no joke, this is the truth, Obama is this nation’s biggest National Security Risk. He has pulled off the biggest scandal ever committed against this country and the so-called “smart folks” are oblivious to what has happened. He accomplished this feat by the use of fraudulent documents. Obama has no legitimate American birth certificate that is why he had to produce a computer generated nine layered forgery. As a result of having NO legitimate birth certificate, the next best document needed to exist in the Unites States is a SS# and we now know that he has been using a fraudulent SS# (042-68-4425) thanks to E-Verify and other sources. We also know that he refused to register with the Selective Service in 1980 using his Indonesian citizenship as an excuse so he was forced to fraudulently register with the Selective Service in 2008 in order to qualify as a Presidential candidate. I will start with the easiest to prove, the fraudulent registration with the Selective Service, see below Youtube presentation.

    • smrstrauss

      Obama’s birth certificate is not a forgery. Only birther “experts” claim that it is. And, btw, layers are normal in PDF. The more complex the document, the more layers.

      Nathan Goulding with The National Review: “We have received several e-mails today calling into question the validity of the PDF that the White House released, namely that there are embedded layers in the document. There are now several other people on the case. We looked into it and dismissed it. … I’ve confirmed that scanning an image, converting it to a PDF, optimizing that PDF, and then opening it up in Illustrator, does in fact create layers similar to what is seen in the birth certificate PDF. You can try it yourself at home.”

        Re Social Security number. Millions of people have errors in their SS numbers, caused MAINLY by data entry errors by SS Administration clerks. Who ever told you that SS clerks never made mistakes? Who ever told you that the mistakes of SS clerks would not result in a SS number being generated from a state other than the one the person applied from? Who ever told you that mistakes of SS clerks would not result in multiple SS numbers in a person’s file?

          The number was flagged by E-Verify several times. It is fraudulent, has nothing to do with a clerk error. CNBC and CBSNEWS have not done nearly the investigation necessary to point out all of the flaws in the SS#. If the Social Security Administration would agree to truly look into the fraud Obama would be exposed. Susan Daniels did much more investigating than those networks above. If you want the truth look closely at these articles, especially the last one, and compare it to what you posted above. Be fair, who did the better job?

          • smrstrauss

            Re: “The number was flagged by E-Verify several times. It is fraudulent, has nothing to do with a clerk error.”

            Answer: It was caused by something even more simple. When your SS number has been published, you can cancel it and get a new one. Then, when someone checks the original number with E-Verify, it no longer exists. It has been canceled. And that is what happened in this case. And, duh, the birther sites did not even tell you that (1) It is possible to cancel your old SS number and get a new one; (2) that when you cancel your old SS number and get a new one, the old one will no longer exist and will therefore fail E-verify.

            So, you should ask why birther sites did not tell you these two simple facts. Why didn’t they tell you? Because they are the same birther sites that LIED when they said that Obama’s Kenyan grandmother said that he was born in Kenya (she never said any such thing. In fact, she said that he was born in HAWAII, but those sites never told you that she said it, and in fact they cut off the tape recording on their sites just before she said: “…in Hawaiii, where his father was studying at the time.”

            And the same birther sites claimed that the governor of Hawaii, Abercrombie, had said that he searched for Obama’s BC in the files and that he could not find it. But Abercrombie never said that either. And those are the same birther sites that never told you that there isn’t even evidence that Obama’s mother had a passport in 1961—and that very very few 19-year-olds did have a passport in 1961—and that even fewer women traveled abroad late in pregnancy in 1961 because of the risk of stillbirths. Why did they LIE about what Obama’s grandmother and the governor of Hawaii said? Why didn’t they tell you that there is no evidence that Obama’s mother had a passport? Why didn’t they tell you that it is possible to cancel your SS number and get a new one? Why didn’t they tell you that if you cancel your SS number and get a new one a check of the old one will fail E-Verify?

            Because they want to mislead you.

            Obama SS# is (042-68-4425). It is the number that appears on his Income Tax forms and has never been changed. Even the dumb ass Bill O’Reilly attempted to cover for Obama by saying the reason for Obama’s Conn. SS# was because his “supposed” Daddy lived in Conn. Lied through his teeth and never retracted that LIE. The Conservative media would like this to all go away but they don’t know how to go about it. The reason they don’t know how to go about it is that they would find out that Obama has been using fraudulent documents for a very long time and that would expose their incompetency.

            Do you really believe that Lt. Mike Zullo would be going around to the offices of Congresspersons and Washington VIPS with evidence that was not truthful? Only an idiot would believe that, he would really be in a world of hurt if he were doing that. Eric Holder would be all over him and Sheriff Joe Arpaio. They would like nothing more than to make these “birthers” look like fools. You will never see anyone challenging these men and women because they all hell would break upon that administrations head and the media for not doing their job.

            It is going to get very ugly for this administration when this scandal finally gets a platform from which the American people will finally see what a fraud this man is. It will set the radical progressive movement back a hundred years and that will be a very good thing. We are not going to have to wait for someone to write a book about it decades after the fact, this fraud is about to explode into the light.

        Reed Hayes, a document and hand writing expert, who was an expert used by the same law firm that Obama has been using to fight the many cases bought against his ineligibility (Perkins-Coie). He has filed a 40 page affidavit to explain the details as to why he had determined along with many, many other document experts declaring the April 27th, 2011 computer generated birth certificate a complete and utter forgery. He has put his reputation on the line, something NO ONE on the opposing side has done. IT IS A FORGERY and will be proven to be just that not long from now.

          The Cold Case Posse claims to have a 40-page report from Reed Hayes, but it has never published it. I wonder why not? Could it be that Reed Hayes, an expert in signatures NOT digital documents, did not say what the Cold Case Posse CLAIMS that he said?

          One proof that Obama’s birth certificate is not forged is Obama’s short-form birth certificate.

          Short-form birth certificates are created by a clerk reading the information from the document in the file, and filling out the computer form that generates the printed short-form birth certificate. The officials in Hawaii have confirmed that they sent a short-form to Obama. So, unless they are lying—and they were Republican officials–the only way that Obama’s birth certificate could have been forged was that it was forged in 2007 and slipped into the file just before the clerk looked at the file. That is not very likely, is it? And it is especially unlikely since at the time Obama was not even the candidate of the Democrats. He was still in the primaries at the time, and he was only a junior senator from Illinois.

          And birther sites have not shown you these real experts.

          Dr. Neil Krawetz, an imaging software analysis author and experienced examiner of questioned images, said:“The PDF released by the White House shows no sign of digital manipulation or alterations. I see nothing that appears to be suspicious.”

          Nathan Goulding with The National Review: “We have received several e-mails today calling into question the validity of the PDF that the White House released, namely that there are embedded layers in the document. There are now several other people on the case. We looked into it and dismissed it.… I’ve confirmed that scanning an image, converting it to a PDF, optimizing that PDF, and then opening it up in Illustrator, does in fact create layers similar to what is seen in the birth certificate PDF. You can try it yourself at home.”

          John Woodman, independent computer professional, who is a member of the Tea Party (who says that he hates Obama’s policies but found no evidence of forgery) said repeatedly in his book and in various articles on his Web site that the claims that Obama’s birth certificate was forged were unfounded.

          Ivan Zatkovich, who has testified in court as a technology expert, and consultant to WorldNetDaily:“All of the modifications to the PDF document that can be identified are consistent with someone enhancing the legibility of the document.” And, by the way, when WND received Zatkovich’s article that said that he found nothing wrong with Obama’s birth certificate, WordNDaily simply did not publish it.

          Jean-Claude Tremblay, a leading software trainer and Adobe-certified expert, who has years of experience working with and teaching Adobe Illustrator, said the layers cited by doubters are evidence of the use of common, off-the-shelf scanning software — not evidence of a forgery.“I have seen a lot of illustrator documents that come from photos and contain those kind of clippings—and it looks exactly like this,” he said.

          Birthers’ claim that Obama’s birth certificate is false is well understood to be caused by their own motives—they hate Obama and would like to harm him.

          And it is irrational (to say the very least) to think that Obama’s relatives had enough money (Obama’s grandfather was just a furniture salesman and his grandmother a low-level employee in a bank at the time; and his father came to Hawaii on a free flight) or crazy enough to spend LOTS of money on a long and expensive and risky (incidents of stillbirths were high at the time) overseas trip for their pregnant daughter—–when there were perfectly good hospitals in Honolulu, Hawaii.

          Also, the government of Kenya has said that it investigated the “born in Kenya” claim, and that it did not happen.

          Furthermore, the Cold Case Posse has not said a word about Obama’s birth certificate being forged following the research done on the Xerox workstation:

          http://www.obamaconspiracy.org/2013/08/the-importance-of-the-xerox-7655-identification/

          http://nativeborncitizen.wordpress.com/xerox-workflow/the-xerox-workcentre-workflow-successes/

          Moreover, for Obama’s birth certificate to have been forged, the forger would have had to have made his mistake DELIBERATELY, which is hardly likely:

          http://www.obamaconspiracy.org/2013/01/ame-o-ospit-or-nstitution-not-in-ospit/

          Finally, birthers have not even shown that Obama’s mother had a passport in 1961, nor have the birther sites told their readers how very very few 18-year-olds had passports in that year. And they have not told their readers how EXTREMELY few women traveled abroad late in pregnancy in 1961 because of the risk of stillbirths. Yet they would like gullible people to believe that Obama’s mother was one of the very very few 18-year-olds to have a passport, and one of the EXTREMELY few women who traveled abroad late in pregnancy—-and that the birth certificate of Hawaii is forged and that the officials of BOTH parties in Hawaii who said that they sent a Hawaii birth certificate to Obama are lying (and that the Index Data file and the birth notices sent to the Hawaii newspapers by the DOH of Hawaii in 1961 must be forged too).

          • sendtheclunkerbacktochicago

            Oh, they have Reed Hayes’ affidavit and it has become part of a present eligibility case before the Alabama State Supreme Court with Chief Justice Roy Moore presiding. Why would they publish that affidavit for anyone to see? It is very logical not to allow the “enemy” to see the evidence, they have learned not to expose themselves to folks like yourself. Use the evidence wisely and at the appropriate time and that is exactly what they have been doing.

            The Short Form is just as phony as the computer generated April 27th, 2011 forgery. Nothing happened in 2007, all this forgery activity began when Jerome Corsi was about to release his book and the lame stream media picked up on Donald Trump (stupid as they are). Obama shot himself in the foot with his lame brain release of that April 27th, 20011 document and that makes his as stupid as Donald Trump and the media.

            Jean Claude Tremblay – REALLY!! Now I know you are easily deceived. I bet you trust SNOPES as a reliable source of information!

            http://www.wnd.com/2011/06/314041/

            You left out a lot of information about Obama’s WHITE grandparents. Communist to the bone would have been a tid bit that folks would have appreciated knowing. Obama’s White Granddaddy was a CIA agent who at one time was assigned to keep an eye on Frank Marshall Davis who became a friend of the family. OH, Frank was a hardened Communist also. Obama’s WHITE grandmother was in a government position to attain a fraudulent SS#. I am not saying that is how it went down but she could have done it. The only reason that there would been a need for a fraudulent SS# if there was no legitimate American birth certificate and I believe that was the case. None of this illegal activity is conspiratorial, it was all about taking advantage of a corrupt system. With all this past criminal history it made it difficult for the Obama enablers to make this guy look eligible. They took a chance that the corrupt media would not look very hard at any of this after all this was their poster child for their white guilt. The handlers guessed right, the media flunkies sucked up to this radical all the way to his large intestine. It will all end soon in the scandal of the century and it won’t be in a book decades from now.

            I was not one that believed Obama was born in Kenya but when the evidence began to mount and folks began to cover up those incidences where people wrote about and talked about his Kenyan roots I became a believer, especially when it was discovered that both his birth documents were forgeries. I personally don’t give schit where he was born but I do care about the fraudulent activity knowing full well that the media would have been all over these three possible fraudulent documents until it became settled. The same rules should apply to this FRAUD.

            Dream on. PDF uses LAYERS, that is how it works. The Xerox workstation uses layers and pixilates some text. That is how it works. The birther sites did not show their readers all the experts who say that the birth certificate is forged, and in fact they did not publish one of the experts whom they hired themselves when he said that there was no evidence that Obama’s birth certificate was forged. And they certainly have not shown their readers the evidence of the Xerox workstation tests. Reed Hayes is an expert in personal signatures, not digital documents. And his alleged 40-page report was, the Cold Case Posse CLAIMS, before the Xerox workstation tests:

            There will eventually be a decision rendered in the Alabama Supreme Court eligibility case and for the FIRST time the evidence is being allowed to be presented and the folks are loaded for bear. Chief Justice Roy Moore has believed all along that Obama was a fraud and the great state of Alabama elected him to the Chief Justice seat just in time to hear this case. You may enjoy reading what they have been presenting, including Reed Hayes’ affidavit. You will eventually get to read Mr. Hayes’s affidavit and you will not like what he has to say and neither will the Fraud in Chief.

            The birther side is likely to lose in Alabama, as it has already lost in all the other cases, about 200 of them. BTW, appeals courts and the Supreme Court of Alabama is an appeals court, do not decide issues of fact. They only rule on the law. The issue in the case is not whether or not Obama is eligible. It is whether or not the secretary of state of Alabama, a Republican, has the legal responsibility of checking the eligibility of presidential candidates. And, since Alabama’s election law does not say that the Secretary of Stale of Alabama has that responsibility, and since the REPUBLICAN secretary of state of Alabama says that she does not have that responsibility, the birther side is likely to lose.

            In any case, there is no evidence whatever that Obama was born in a foreign country or that his birth certificate is forged. Only birthers, people who hate Obama, claim that they have “evidence” that his birth certificate is forged. The results of the Xerox workstation tests show overwhelmingly that the anomalies birther “experts” claim are all caused as part of the process. And, guess what, the birther myth is not believed by Ann Coulter, Glenn Beck, the National Review, or by MItt Romney, Paul Ryan or Huckabee or Santorum or Gingrich. Michelle Bachmann voted to confirm Obama’s election TWICE.

            Chief Justice Roy Moore is not going to sit back and allow nothing to happen. As scandals go it always begins with “I am not aware” to a bunch of folks getting fired and then finally it is scandal and the barn door opens and out come the horses. This has taken a long time to get to the “people getting fired” because Democrats will always remain faithful to their partners in crime, unlike the Republicans who fire people very quickly. Anyway, we shall see who is right about this and if I were a gambling man, even with the cards stacked against me, would bet Barry doesn’t finish this term.

    Throughout his entire political career, Barack Hussein Obama has supported the more radical Islamic leaders, organizations, and movements. As the Islamists have become more deeply entrenched into the roles of governance, the arrogance of Obama and his support of their kill the infidel policies has increased exponentially. His actions indicate an endgame that empowers the rise of an Islamic Caliphate while isolating Israel and alienating the west. He is so arrogant that he thinks he can turn the tide of time into Islam’s favor despite the fact that he is tilting against a windmill that has been promised the protection of God Himself. Be careful, Mr. Obama. As Israel goes, so goes the rest of the world.

      When you want to prove something provide the links. Your supposed Talmud quotations are projections of what YOU believe in . Here are some real quotes:

      Article 7 of the Hamas Charter reads:
      http://www.memri.org/report/en/0/0/0/0/0/0/1609.htm

      “The hour of judgment shall not come until the Muslims fight the Jews and kill them, so that the Jews hide behind trees and stones, and each tree and stone will say: ‘Oh Muslim, oh servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him,’ except for the Gharqad tree, for it is the tree of the Jews.”

      Article 7 is taken from Hadith Bukhari Volume 4, Book 52, Number 177 and quotes the Prophet Muhammad:
      http://www.hadithcollection.com/sahihbukhari/85/3715-sahih-bukhari-volume-004-book-052-hadith-number-177.html

      Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah’s Apostle said, “The Hour will not be established until you fight with the Jews, and the stone behind which a Jew will be hiding will say. “O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, so kill him.”

    This story is dead on in many respects but it misses one critical point – Egypt is leaning toward Russia yes, but it will not have the same results as before, it will have the results of what the Non- Obama US had within the region. Russia is not trying to topple Isreal and most importantly the military in Egypt does not want to fight Isreal, it wants the same kind of peace the Egyptian people have had the last 30 yrs, the same stability. If Egypt has to go to Russia to get that because Obama is pro-terrorist groups then it will do what it has to do.

    Not all Americans who voted for Obama share his hatred of the U.S. – some only care about their welfare payments, while others are completely ignorant of the issues and just “feel” that Obama cares about them more than Mitt Romney did.

I understand why leftists and racists still like him but how stupid does somebody have to be to feel satisfied with his job performance? And don’t get me started on what a sleazy scumbag he is.

            “Under the longstanding English common-law principle of jus soli, persons born within the territory of the sovereign (other than children of enemy aliens or foreign diplomats) are citizens from birth. Thus, those persons born within the United States are “natural born citizens” and eligible to be President. Much less certain, however, is whether children born abroad of United States citizens are “natural born citizens” eligible to serve as President …”—- Edwin Meese, et al, THE HERITAGE GUIDE TO THE CONSTITUTION (2005) [Edwin Meese was Ronald Reagan’s attorney general, and the Heritage Foundation is a well-known Conservative organization.]

            They were mainly REPUBLICANS trying to get Governor Arnold Schwartzenegger, a naturalized US citizen, to become eligible. Schwartzenegger, born in Austria and naturalized, is not eligible. Obama, born in Hawaii, is eligible, as Meese and ALL the appeals courts have ruled. (And, BTW, even the Minor v. Happersett case does not say what birthers think it says).

            Re: Apuzzo. He is wrong, and Meese and the Heritage Foundation are right.

            Apuzzo is wrong and former senator Fred Thompson is right. Apuzzo is wrong and the Economist is right. Apuzzo is wrong and the Wall Street Journal is right:

            “Some birthers imagine that there is a difference between being a “citizen by birth” or a “native citizen” on the one hand and a “natural born” citizen on the other. “Eccentric” is too kind a word for this notion, which is either daft or dishonest. All three terms are identicalin meaning.”—The Wall Street Journal (http://online.wsj.com/article)

            Apuzzo is wrong, and these appeals courts are right:

            Hollander v. McCain (New Hampshire 2008) ruling: “Those born “in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof,” U.S. Const., amend. XIV, have been considered American citizens under American law in effect since the time of the founding, United States v. Wong Kim Ark, 169 U.S. 649, 674-75 (1898), and thus eligible for the presidency…”

            Ankeny v. Governor of Indiana (Indiana 2008 – Appellate Court) ruling: “Based upon the language of Article II, Section 1, Clause 4 and the guidance provided by Wong Kim Ark, we conclude that persons born within the borders of the United States are “natural born Citizens” for Article II, Section 1 purposes, regardless of the citizenship of their parents.”

            Tisdale v. Obama (Virginia federal court 2012) ruling: “It is well settled that those born in the United States are considered natural born citizens.”

            Voeltz v. Obama (Florida 2012) ruling: “However, the United States Supreme Court has concluded that ‘[e]very person born in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, becomes at once a citizen of the United States. ‘Other courts that have considered the issue in the context of challenges to the qualifications of candidates for the office of President of the United States have come to the same conclusion.”

            Allen v. Obama (Arizona 2012) ruling: “Most importantly, Arizona courts are bound by United States Supreme Court precedent in construing the United States Constitution, Arizona v. Jay J. Garfield Bldg. Co. , 39 Ariz. 45, 54, 3 P.2d 983, 986(1931), and this precedent fully supports that President Obama is a natural born citizen under the Constitution and thus qualified to hold the office of President. … Contrary to Plaintiff’s assertion, Minor v. Happersett, 88 U.S. 162 (1874), does not hold otherwise.”

            Farrar (et al.) v. Obama (Georgia 2012) ruling: “In 2009, the Indiana Court of Appeals (“Indiana Court”) addressed facts and issues similar to those before this court. [Ankeny] v. Governor, 916 N.E.2d (Ind. Ct. App. 2009). … The Indiana Court rejected the argument that Mr. Obama was ineligible, stating that children born within the United States are natural born citizens, regardless of the citizenship of their parents. … This Court finds the decision and analysis of [Ankeny] persuasive.”

            On October 1 of last year, the US Supreme Court turned down an appeal of the last of the rulings shown above, the Farrar case, which had ruled that “children born within the United States are natural born citizens, regardless of the citizenship of their parents.” By rejecting the appeal, the US Supreme Court allowed the ruling of the lower court to STAND.

            In addition to those rulings specifically on presidential eligibility, there are these:

            Mustata v. US Dept. of Justice, 179 F.3d 1017 (6th Cir. 1999) (children born in US to two Romanian citizens described as “natural born citizens” of the US):

            “Petitioners Marian and Lenuta Mustata are citizens of Romania. At the time of their petition, they resided in Michigan with their two minor children, who are natural born citizens of the United States.”

            Diaz-Salazar v. INS, 700 F.2d 1156 (7th Cir. 1983) (child born in US to Mexican citizen is “natural born citizen” of US):

            “Petitioner, Sebastian Diaz-Salazar, entered the United States illegally [from Mexico] in 1974 and has been living and working in Chicago since that time. *** The relevant facts which have been placed before the INS, BIA, and this court can be summarized as follows: The petitioner has a wife and two children under the age of three in Chicago; the children are natural-born citizens of the United States.”

            Nwankpa v. Kissinger, 376 F. Supp. 122 (M.D. Ala. 1974) (child born in US to two Biafra citizens described as “natural born citizen” of the US):

            “The Plaintiff was a native of Biafra, now a part of the Republic of Nigeria. His wife and two older children are also natives of that country, but his third child, a daughter, is a natural-born citizen of the United States.”
            That makes about 13 courts that I can cite easily that have ruled that the US born children of foreigners are Natural Born Citizens.

            Re: ” it wasn’t all about Schwartzenegger.”

            Answer: It was MAINLY about Schwartzenegger. It wasn’t about Obama at all because, unlike Schwartzenegger, Obama was born on US soil—in Hawaii (as his birth certificate and the confirmation of the officials of BOTH parties in Hawaii shows), and as the US Supreme Court has ruled in the Wong Kim Ark case, every child born on US soil except for the children of foreign diplomats is a Natural Born US Citizen.

            Apuzzo is wrong, and if he cannot convince even the National Review or Mitt Romney of his legal argument, he is not likely to convince any rational person. And, in fact, his views have been rejected by TEN appeals courts, some of which I quoted. Worse, Apuzzo was not able to convince a single member of the US Electoral College to change her or his vote. Obama received 356 electoral votes in the general election of 2008, and he received the votes of 356 electors—not one changed. Obama received 332 electoral votes in the general election of 2012 and he received the votes of 332 electors—not one changed.

            Apuzzo has not proven his case to even ONE of those nearly 800 electors. And he was not able to convince a single member of Congress; they confirmed Obama’s election unanimously in the 2008 and 2012 elections (and that included Ron Paul and Michelle Bachmann), and he was not able to convince even one of the ten appeals courts.

            Meese and the Heritage Foundation (and Senator Fred Thompson, and senators Hatch and Graham) are right, and Apuzzo is wrong.

            I agree, those Congresspersons were not even thinking about Obama, they just wanted the clause changed, they think that the Constitution is a living breathing document and the original intent of that clause served its purpose and is meaningless in this modern era where there is such diversity in America. Well, we sure learned the idiocy in that thinking, look what we have Barack Hussein Obama (or whatever his name is).

            Of all those cases you mentioned how many of them actually were argued. The National Review never reviewed any of Apuzzo’s work. Apuzzo never had one conversation with Mitt Romney or any of his campaign staff. Do you really think the Electoral College ever considered any of Apuzzo’s work, not in your lifetime or mine. They could have cared less about Apuzzo’s work or anyone else’s work. They are always a “rubber stamp” on the election results, always have been and always will be. Once in a great while a couple will break ranks but that is a rare duck.

            You are dead wrong about the Wong Kim Ark case. Neither the Wong Kim Ark case or the 14th Amendment make one a “natural born Citizen.”

            http://puzo1.blogspot.com/2009/07/neither-14th-amendment-nor-wong-kim-ark.html

            Obama is a citizen of the United States (if we find a birth certificate that declares that) but NOT a “natural born Citizen.”

            Re: “they just wanted the clause changed,”

            Answer: So? The Constitution allows for changes, and it has been amended 27 times. The motives of some of the people who wanted to change the Natural Born Citizen clause was to enable Schwartzenegger, a naturalized citizen, to become president. Earlier, people had tried to amend it to allow Henry Kissinger to become president. Still earlier, in the 1950s, it was pointed out that Irving Berlin, the writer of God Bless America, would not be eligible to become president, and many people wanted to amend it to allow him and other totally loyal naturalized citizens to become president. None of those attempts were successful, but none of them were evil either. In any case, NONE of the efforts to change the Natural Born Citizen clause were done for Obama’s benefit because, duh, he was not a naturalized citizen. He really was born in Hawaii, as his birth certificate and the confirmation of the officials of BOTH parties shows.

            Re: “The National Review never reviewed any of Apuzzo’s work.”

            They said this about the claim that Obama’s birth certificate was forged because of “layers,” however:

            Nathan Goulding with The National Review: “We have received several e-mails today calling into question the validity of the PDF that the White House released, namely that there are embedded layers in the document. There are now several other people on the case. We looked into it and dismissed it.… I’ve confirmed that scanning an image, converting it to a PDF, optimizing that PDF, and then opening it up in Illustrator, does in fact create layers similar to what is seen in the birth certificate PDF. You can try it yourself at home.”

            And the National Review, and Mitt Romney, and other members of Congress are perfectly capable of asking themselves this question and drawing the obvious conclusion that Obama MUST have been born in Hawaii.

            For Obama to have been born in a foreign country:

            (1) Obama’s relatives would have had to have been rich enough (and they weren’t. In 1961 Obama’s grandfather was a furniture salesman, and his grandmother was a low-level employee in a bank [she did not become a vice president until 1971], and his father went from Kenya to Hawaii on a free flight) and dumb enough to send their daughter at high risk of stillbirth to a foreign country to give birth—-—despite there being fine hospitals in Hawaii;

            (2) Obama’s mother would have had to have traveled overseas ALONE (since WND has proven with a FOI Act request that Obama senior stayed in Hawaii throughout 1961) and somehow got Obama back to the USA without getting him entered on her US passport or getting a visa for him (which would have had to have been applied for in a US consulate in that country and the records would still exist);

            (3) got the officials in Hawaii to record his birth in Hawaii despite (as birthers claim) his being born in another country and somehow got the teacher who wrote home to her father, named Stanley, about the birth in Hawaii of a child to a woman named Stanley to lie (and since the woman’s father’s name really was Stanley, she would have had to have found one of the very few women with fathers of that name to do it).

            If you sincerely believe that Obama could have been born in a foreign country, then you could answer all three points. For Obama to have been born in a foreign country, all three would have had to have happened.

            So, the question is, what are the chances that all three happened?

            So, obviously, they do not believe Sheriff Joe because the chance of Obama having been born anywhere else than Hawaii is so low. Also because of some of Sheriff Joe’s LIES in the past, such as the meaning of the penciled numeral “9″:

            Re: “or whatever his name is.”

            His name is shown on his birth certificate. It is Barack Hussein Obama II. And, since it was never legally changed, it is still Barack Hussein Obama II.

            And by the way, he was never adopted by his step-father in Indonesia—which requires the action of a district court, and no such court document has every been shown. And he was never a citizen of Indonesia either, as a telephone call to the embassy of that country in Washington will confirm. Yes, he used his step-father’s name when he lived in Indonesia, but he simply used it, and did not legally change his name to Soetoro.

            Re: “Of all those cases you mentioned how many of them actually were argued.”

            Answer: All TEN of them. Here are some of the rulings:

            Hollander v. McCain (New Hampshire 2008) ruling: “Those born “in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof,” U.S. Const., amend. XIV, have been considered American citizens under American law in effect since the time of the founding, United States v. Wong Kim Ark, 169 U.S. 649, 674-75 (1898), and thus eligible for the presidency…”

            Ankeny v. Governor of Indiana (Indiana 2008 – Appellate Court) ruling: “Based upon the language of Article II, Section 1, Clause 4 and the guidance provided by Wong Kim Ark, we conclude that persons born within the borders of the United States are “natural born Citizens” for Article II, Section 1 purposes, regardless of the citizenship of their parents.”

            Tisdale v. Obama (Virginia federal court 2012) ruling: “It is well settled that those born in the United States are considered natural born citizens.”

            Purpura v. Obama (New Jersey 2012) ruling: “No court, federal, state or administrative, has accepted the challengers’ position that Mr. Obama is not a “natural born Citizen” due to the acknowledged fact that his father was born in Kenya and was a British citizen by virtue of the then applicable British Nationality Act. Nor has the fact that Obama had, or may have had, dual citizenship at the time of his birth and thereafter been held to deny him the status of natural born. It is unnecessary to reinvent the wheel here. … The petitioners’ legal position on this issue, however well intentioned, has no merit in law. Thus, accepting for the point of this issue that Mr. Obama was born in Hawaii, he is a ‘natural born Citizen’ regardless of the status of his father.”

            Voeltz v. Obama (Florida 2012) ruling: “However, the United States Supreme Court has concluded that ‘[e]very person born in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, becomes at once a citizen of the United States. ‘Other courts that have considered the issue in the context of challenges to the qualifications of candidates for the office of President of the United States have come to the same conclusion.”

            Allen v. Obama (Arizona 2012) ruling: “Most importantly, Arizona courts are bound by United States Supreme Court precedent in construing the United States Constitution, Arizona v. Jay J. Garfield Bldg. Co. , 39 Ariz. 45, 54, 3 P.2d 983, 986(1931), and this precedent fully supports that President Obama is a natural born citizen under the Constitution and thus qualified to hold the office of President. … Contrary to Plaintiff’s assertion, Minor v. Happersett, 88 U.S. 162 (1874), does not hold otherwise.”

            Farrar (et al.) v. Obama (Georgia 2012) ruling: “In 2009, the Indiana Court of Appeals (“Indiana Court”) addressed facts and issues similar to those before this court. [Ankeny] v. Governor, 916 N.E.2d (Ind. Ct. App. 2009). … The Indiana Court rejected the argument that Mr. Obama was ineligible, stating that children born within the United States are natural born citizens, regardless of the citizenship of their parents. … This Court finds the decision and analysis of [Ankeny] persuasive.”

            And, on October 1, 2012, the US Supreme Court turned down an appeal of the last of the rulings shown above, the Farrar case, which had ruled that “children born within the United States are natural born citizens, regardless of the citizenship of their parents.” By rejecting the appeal, the US Supreme Court allowed the ruling of the lower court to STAND.

      If he is not a legal citizen then he cannot be charged with treason, but he can be charged with sedition which is tantamount to the same thing.

    I don’t know if this is funny or serious. I have to laugh at how stupid Americans were to not only elect the Muslim phony negro not once, but twice.

    But then I have to seriously believe foul play was involved in the voting process combined with MSM deception.

    But that bring us to another problem that involves both. Just how many people are gullible in America?

    • Dallas25305

      The constant drum beat of the Liberal Socialist media had a big part in it. Also the stupidity of the Republicans to not attack and vilify Obama a flawed man who has targets all over him. While Obama and the Democrap Party use Saul Alinsky tactics and call Romney everything but a white man. They do it constantly and attack politics work. The Republicans have a senile old John McCain who must have Stockholm syndrome because he always does Obama and the Demo’s work for them. They have to be laughing.

  • PAthena

    President Barack Hussein Obama’s ties with the Muslim Brotherhood make me suspect that he is actually a member. When Hillary Clinton was his Secretary of of State, her closest aide was Huma Abedin, whose family are Muslim Brotherhood and Sisterhood. (See Andrew McCarrthy.) This could only have been with the approval of President Obama. In addition, President Obama has a half0brother from Kenya who is a Muslim Brotherhood leader.

      • sendtheclunkerbacktochicago

        I was hell bent on not believing he was a Muslim. I also knew he could not possibly be a biblical Christian by just observing his stance on the social issues (abortion and sodomite relationships and a hard core evolutionists). I have changed my mind knowing that the Muslim faith is the only faith in which LYING is part of their doctrines as long as it is used to advance the “faith” (Taqiya). Obama is constantly lying and his praise for Islam confirms my belief.

  • Jsjk

    But is there not a certain irony here? Given the average Egyptian’s radical hatred for all things American (America is anathema), has not Barry Hussein’s cozy, intimate, smiling appreciation for the Brotherhood meant the death knell for Morsi? It’s amusing — Barry’s BFF routine may have doomed Morsi in the eyes of the average Egyptian.

  • Peter C. Lubrano

    I am confused! will someone explain tome what is the difference between aiding and abetting the enemy, an impeachable offense, and supporting the enemy by bringing him into our government as Obama has been doing by appointing Islamists to his administration? Is this president not violating the constitution of the U.S. by deliberately putting these people in high positions in his administration who have already influenced U.S. policy towards Islam, and terrorism….even to the point that our FBI’s training manuals dropped all references to terrorism.
    What are we doing? What will it take to censor and stop this president from continuing his anti-American policies and giving aid and comfort and financial support to the Islamists while continuing to ignore the slaughter of tens of thousands of Christians throughout the Middle-East and elsewhere!
    I believe that this president’s policies have become a scandal and border mon the criminal…..this cannot continue….president Obama is in vilation of the U.S. Constitution and must be brought to task and held accountable for his actions!
    Thank you and God Bless,

    Obama is MB, out to destroy US from within and his eventual goal is to isolate ISRAEL to destroy it. Payment of jizya has nearly stopped from US to Egypt.

    Re: “It is going to get very ugly for this administration when this scandal finally gets a platform from which the American people will finally see what a fraud this man is. It will set the radical progressive movement back a hundred years….”

    Answer: Dream on. The nutty birther movement has already set the Republican Party and the Conservative movement back 100 years.

    http://www.globaltimes.cn/content/776412.shtml#.Um6gLVOamCl

    The birther movement is truly loony. It believes sites that blatantly lied when they said that Obama’s Kenyan grandmother said that he was born in Kenya. (She actually said right on the tape that he was “born in Hawaii, where his father was studying at the time.”) Birther sites simply did not quote her and cut off the tape recording on their sites just before she was asked: “Where was he born.” And they lied when they claimed that Abercrombie said that he could not find Obama’s birth certificate (He also never said any such thing, and three officials in Hawaii—two Republican, one Democrat—have stated that Obama’s birth certificate is right in the files, where it is supposed to be.)

    And yet a few gullible people believe these lies, and hope—desperately—that they will find a court somewhere (perhaps in Alabama, but even there they are not that nutty) will support their loony notions.

    For Obama to have been born in a foreign country:

    (1) Obama’s relatives would have had to have been rich enough (and they weren’t. In 1961 Obama’s grandfather was a furniture salesman, and his grandmother was a low-level employee in a bank [she did not become a vice president until 1971], and his father went from Kenya to Hawaii on a free flight) and dumb enough to send their daughter at high risk of stillbirth to a foreign country to give birth—-—despite there being fine hospitals in Hawaii;

    (2) Obama’s mother would have had to have traveled overseas ALONE (since WND has proven with a FOI Act request that Obama senior stayed in Hawaii throughout 1961) and somehow got Obama back to the USA without getting him entered on her US passport or getting a visa for him (which would have had to have been applied for in a US consulate in that country and the records would still exist);

    If you sincerely believe that Obama could have been born in a foreign country, then you could answer all three points. For Obama to have been born in a foreign country, all three would have had to have happened.

    So, the question is, what are the chances that all three happened?
