I’ve long wondered if Republicans can field a candidate who has the courage to ignore the unwritten rule that it’s politically incorrect to speak the truth about America’s current make-believe president.
When George Bush graciously turned over the White House keys to the mysterious man with the mysterious background, few realized he was handing America’s top secrets to the enemies from within. But given the swiftness with which Obama began implementing his collectivist, anti-America agenda, it didn’t take long for millions of voters to wake up. Sadly, however, many more millions still choose to ignore his anti-American words and actions and write off those who oppose him as racists or right-wing radicals.
Which is why I find it so refreshing that someone of Donald Trump’s stature had the courage to come forward and demand that Barack Obama produce his birth certificate. Notwithstanding all the evidence that has been presented by Jerome Corsi and others who have been on top of this issue since long before Obama was elected, the left has succeeded in silencing anyone who has dared broach the subject by writing them off as conspiracy nuts.
And BHO himself has displayed incredible chutzpah when pressed on the subject, on one occasion even wisecracking to Brian Williams, “I can’t spend all my time with my birth certificate plastered on my forehead.” Nice Alinsky-like diversionary tactic, Barack, but it’s not working so well anymore. In fact, even the master of the tingled leg, Chris Matthews, is suggesting that you put to bed all this ridiculous talk about your not being a citizen by simply producing your birth certificate. What a novel idea.
That Obama apparently does not have an authentic U.S. birth certificate is becoming increasingly evident. If he did have such a document, he would have to be an arrogant fool not to put it on public display to shut up all those crazy birthers. Arrogant, yes. But fool … I don’t think so.
Bill O’Reilly has long snickered at anyone who broached the birther subject, always insisting that his staff had “already checked it out.” But when Trump recently pressed him on the issue, O’Reilly said that what his people had found was a birth announcement in two Hawaii newspapers. Tell you what, Bill. If you’d like an announcement of some kind put in any newspaper in the country, just pay me a hundred bucks and I’ll be happy to do it for you – quickly and easily.
I don’t claim to have done any serious investigation on this subject, but, based on Obama’s own refusal to make his birth certificate available to at least (all) members of the press, I have no choice but to assume that he was not born in this country. Kind of a familiar theme, since he also had all of his records sealed at Columbia (where no one from his class seems to have any recollection of him) and Harvard.
But let’s not get hung up on a little thing like where Obama was born. It’s just that I have this gnawing piece of advice stuck in the back of my mind: “Trust, but verify.”
Whatever his place of birth, the one thing that is clear are Obama’s own words and actions throughout the part of his career that is actually documented. It’s time to start talking openly about the guy who vowed to fundamentally change the United States of America and stop pretending as though he’s just another moderate liberal who’s “not up to the task” of governing.
Let’s give credit where credit is due: Obama is up to the task. As a matter of fact, he’s doing an outstanding job of accomplishing exactly what he set out to do: carry out the Marxist vision of his father, which he explains quite clearly in his book “Dreams from My Father.”
In this respect, in his revealing book “The Roots of Obama’s Rage,” Dinesh D’Souza does an excellent job of explaining why Obama’s words and actions seem so perplexing to the Bill O’Reillys of the world:
We are today living out the script for America and the world that was dreamt up not by Obama but by Obama’s father. How do I know this? Because Obama says so himself. Reflect for a moment on the title of his book: It’s not “Dreams of My Father” but rather “Dreams from My Father.” In other words, Obama is not writing a book about his father’s dreams; he is writing a book about the dreams that he got from his father.
Think about what this means. The most powerful country in the world is being governed according to the dreams of a Luo tribesman of the 1950s – a polygamist who abandoned his wives, drank himself into stupors and bounced around on two iron legs … raging against the world for denying him the realization of his anti-colonial ambitions.
This philandering, inebriated African socialist is now setting the nation’s agenda through the reincarnation of his dreams in his son. The son is the one who is making it happen, but the son is, as he candidly admits, only living out his father’s dream. The invisible father provides the inspiration, and the son dutifully gets the job done. America today is being governed by a ghost.
What a comforting thought. But, in all fairness, let us never forget that BHO must have a list of great accomplishments hidden away somewhere (perhaps with his sealed college papers) or he would not have been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. After all, that puts him right up there with Jimmy Carter, Al Gore, Yasser Arafat and Kofi Annan.
What a great novel all this would make … though it would have to be toned down quite a bit for it to be more believable to discerning readers. In the meantime, I hope Donald Trump presses forward and uses his considerable clout to force into the open what could be the biggest political scandal in the history of this country.
