Obama, Trump, and the "genuine" birth certificate--why all the fuss? ~ By Al Benson Jr. and Daniel Benson

Obama, Trump, and the "genuine" birth certificate--why all the fuss?

cpprhd10@aol.com

Just a few thoughts about the possible reason we have finally been treated to a copy of Obama's genuine, new (and it is new) birth certificate.
***
By Al Benson Jr. and Daniel Benson


We’ve been reading for almost two years now about the fact that Obama was pointedly ignoring requests for a real birth certificate to be released. In fact he spent around $2 million making sure none of his records were released, right on down to Kindergarten.

WorldNet Daily made a big splash about the fact that you couldn’t find any information on this individual that currently resides in the Red (White) House and they even paid to put billboards up around the country asking pointedly “Where’s the Birth Certificate?” Others picked up on this and ran with it also. No response from our Marxist-in-Chief except an occasional sneer, which he’s pretty good at.

Then along came Donald Trump, supposedly running for president, probably as a RINO. He started complaining about Obama’s lack of a valid birth certificate, and lo and behold, Obama shoves one out this past week. Trump claims credit for getting one posted when no one else could.

However, looking at the Great One’s new “authentic” birth certificate, it seems that there are some problems with it. For instance..........................................

The Order would require companies doing business with the federal government to report on any political contributions to independent groups. Congress rejected the DISCLOSE Act last year.

“Mundus vult decipi, ergo decipiatur” the world wishes to be deceived, so let it be deceived.
President Obama was incredulous that the protest at a San Francisco Fund Raiser was filmed by a media person; after all, he controls and directs media, academia, the unions, and Democrats. To break this code is an invitation to bring on the wrath of Obama or to be disallowed or banished from participation in the Obamanation. Liberals and Progressives cower at the thought of being forsaken by the Obama, yet one and her employer dared to stand against the power of Obama, they invoked the First Amendment and called him liar.

This 1964 drama was based on the novel by Fletcher Knebel and Charles W. Bailey II. The screenplay was written by Rod Serling.
Burt Lancaster plays General James Mattoon Scott, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. 

Kirk Douglas plays Marine Colonel Martin “Jiggs” Casey. 
Nothing needs to be said about the performances of these two actors because they always turn in excellent acting jobs. Fredric March is President Jordan Lyman and I can’t think of anyone who would play him better. Ava Gardner has the role of Elinor Holbrook, the ex-girlfriend of General Scott. Edmond O’Brien is the bourbon drinking Senator Raymond Clark from Georgia and Andrew Duggan is Colonel Henderson. John Houseman has a small role as Vice-Admiral Barnswell.

If you really, really dislike Barack Obama, his long-form birth certificate, finally proffered in exasperation, is quite simply a counterfeit.

If you are a fan of the president — or even a respectful critic — you are relieved finally to have rid the country of the plague of “birtherism,” the rabid belief that Obama wasn’t born in this country and isn’t constitutionally qualified to be president.

As a California prison guard, you can make six figures in overtime and bonuses alone. While Harvard-educated lawyers and consultants often have to work long hours with little recompense besides Chinese take-out, prison guards receive time-and-a-half whenever they work more than 40 hours a week.

“If you will not fight for the right when you can easily win without bloodshed; if you will not fight when your victory will be sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a small chance of survival.

HOW MANY TRUE CONSTITUTIONAL DEFENDERS ARE THERE?

Senator Lindsey Graham stated publicly that he favors changing the wording of the First Amendment to accommodate Muslims in the U.S. Why are U.S. citizens electing such people to office?
(May 1, 2011) — A couple of weeks ago, a friend sent me a video of a lady who not only speaks up against the oppression of Islam and the Obama syndicate but is not afraid to have her singularly articulate views placed before the entire world.  Therefore, I contacted her.  As you will see below, Ann is fearless.

The Interview

Sher: Ann, I first want to thank you for your courage in openly speaking about those who would destroy us, while most of our elected officials seem to immediately flee and then hide from the issue. I have to say that I, along with others, was amazed and thankful at the honesty of your videos denigrating the true malevolence of radical Islam.
When we spoke, this week, you indicated that 9/11/2001 was the initial reason for your videos. But, was there anything else that spurred you on toward creating and bringing them out now?

CONCORD — You can only speculate about the last moments of a Vietnam soldier killed in action. Imagine the choking clouds of dust followed by a heavy pattering of rain, those adrenaline-filled heartbeats of a soldier, ready to do what his country asked him to.
Imagine that soldier, fingering a lucky Zippo lighter in his pocket, another touching a cross nestled around his neck, all of them checking their weapons.
They take fire, three don’t make it out.

Things similar to these may have happened during the last moments of Sgt. First Class Donald “Donnie” Monroe Shue. Shue, an Army Green Beret, was serving with two others when they went missing on a mission Nov. 3, 1969. Shue, Staff Sgt. William Brown and Staff Sgt. Gunther Wald were last seen wounded 30 miles inside Laos, near Ban Chakevy Tai in Saravane Province. According to military documents, Shue and the other two men — as well as several men who escaped — were attached to a unit performing highly classified maneuvers throughout Southeast Asia.

If you’re like me, you don’t particularly want to live in an America where Donald Trump has a chance of being elected.
But, also if you’re like me, you definitely don’t want an America that would prohibit The Donald (or is it “The Trump” . . . or “The Hair”?) from running.

This distinction, between the outcomes or the things you approve of, on the one hand, and the system you support, on the other, must be kept in mind as the political season heats up. Especially in America, because, in the land of the free, we pride ourselves on making just such distinctions.

"May I ask what you're doing?" Brown inquires. The boy begins to peck at the Xoom tablet, and in seconds the image that Brown has come all the way from Cartwright, Okla., to see fills the screen.

WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama is mixing mixed comedy with some early campaigning at the White House Correspondents' Association annual dinner, focusing mainly on Donald Trump.

With Trump in attendance, Obama said the billionaire businessman has shown the acumen of a future president, from firing Gary Busey on a recent episode of "Celebrity Apprentice" to focusing so much time on conspiracy theories about Obama's birthplace.

President Obama's birth certificate took center stage during his appearance Saturday night at the White House Correspondents Dinner in Washington.
He was introduced with the song "Real American" with shots of the certificate cut into a South Park-style montage, Politico reported. The president also said he really wanted to put the issue of his birth to rest -- and showed a brief clip from the Disney cartoon "The Lion King."

Obama also took aim at Donald Trump, who has become of the country's best-known "birthers" in the past few weeks and a possible Republican candidate for president next year.
"Now, I know that he's taken some flak lately, but no one is prouder to put this birth certificate matter to rest than The Donald," Obama said. "And that's because he can finally get back to focusing on the issues that matter, like, 'Did we fake the moon landing?'

Uprising after uprising in the Middle East; sexual and intellectual scandal in the Church; earthquakes in Chile and Haiti; tsunamis in Indonesia and Japan; and financial collapse in almost every market: given the startling increase in the frequency of global crises—political, religious, financial, natural—one is tempted to begin looking for Antichrist and despair for the future.

The pervading anxiety and fear is exacerbated by non-Catholic proliferation of “end time” fiction and even some Catholics who erroneously promote the imminent arrival of the Antichrist and the Second Coming. This idea has distinct emotional appeal in our troubled times, since one way or another, it would all end soon, and possibly without our having to do anything at all.

Back in the glory days of the American free press, reporters and editors prided themselves on holding the powerful accountable.

We called it "afflicting the comfortable and comforting the afflicted."
We knew the central role of a free press in a free society is to serve as a watchdog on government and other powerful institutions.

Today, for the most part, America has a controlled press – one more suited to making excuses for the powerful, parroting the party line, demeaning efforts to hold officials accountable for their actions and serving as little more than propaganda agents for their favorite politicians.

If you want to see a classic example of what I'm talking about, look no further than an April 23 Associated Press story, circulated worldwide by the largest news-gathering organization on the globe, about the concern over Barack Obama's refusal to demonstrate his constitutional eligibility to serve in the White House.
It's a journalistic scandal.
