NEW YORK TIMES:A plurality of Republican voters, 47 percent, said they believed Mr. Obama was born in another country; 22 percent said they did not know where he was born, and 32 percent said they believed he was born in the United States.
U.K. DAILY MAIL: It turns out Barack Obama was dreaming big right from an early age -
at just nine-years-old he announced he was going to be the prime minister of Indonesia.
The episode from a new biography of the president’s mother, Stanley Ann Dunham, reveals the roots of a hunger for power which has driven Mr Obama’s heady rise from an eccentric upbringing in Hawaii and Indonesia to the White House.
It will bring a wry smile to the faces of ‘birthers’, who are not satisfied he was born in the U.S.
In A Singular Woman: The Untold Story of Barack Obama’s Mother, author Janny Scott tells how young Barack – then known by the westernised abbreviation of ‘Barry’ – was pushed by his mother to reach for the sky right from the start.
Mrs Dunham died when she was just 52, never knowing the incredible heights her son would achieve.
But, according to the book, she had no doubts about his potential, even when he was nine.
Ms Scott wrote: ‘It was clear to many that Ann believed Barry, in particular, was unusually gifted. She would boast about his brains, his achievements, how brave he was.’
Looking Out for Number One author Robert Ringer joins Donald Trump by asking obvious questions about who Obama is, where he came from, and why we can’t get answers.
ROBERT RINGER: 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.
What Donald Trump Is Really Talking About
DOUG AND JOSEPH HAGMANN-CANADA FREE PRESS: To those who are now speaking out about the Obama eligibility matter, I can think of no better statement than the one uttered by a very frustrated Officer John McClane, played by Bruce Willis in the movie“Die Hard.” In order to get the attention of a police officer oblivious to the carnage taking place inside of the Nakatomi Plaza building after making a very cursory inspection and finding nothing amiss,McClane tosses the body of a terrorist from an office window window onto the windshield of the police cruiser and fires at the police car, yelling “welcome to the party, pal.”
I suspect that this statement accurately reflects the sentiment of numerous individuals and groups who have been fighting in the real world trenches for full disclosure of all of Barack Hussein Obama’s records, including his birth certificate, for the last three years. People such as Commander Charles Kerchner (retired) and Attorney Mario Apuzzo, Pennsylvania Attorney Philip Berg, Reverend David Manning of Atlah Ministries, and numerous others who have spoken out and taken their valiant fight for full disclosure of Obama’s records to the nation’s courts, only to be struck down for lack of standing or other arbitrary judicial opinions.
Due to the recent public statements by billionaire businessman turned reality television star about the birth certificate issue, the eligibility of Barack Hussein Obama has gained equal amounts of renewed interest and contempt by the American media and a vocal segment of the American public. The latter display of contempt is nicely displayed by some recent interview clips, including the priceless Meredith Viera interview of Donald Trump where she can hardly hold back her disdain of Mr. Trump and the entire eligibility matter, and Donald Trump’s appearance on “The View” last month.
On “The View,” Mr. Trump wreaked havoc among the cadre of women co-hosts when he merely mentioned the lack of a legitimate birth certificate provided by Obama. Lacking any coherent or intellectual rebuttals to Trump’s claims, a not-so veiled accusation of racism was leveled against Trump by “The View” co-host Whoppi Goldberg, while Barbara Walters expressed discomfort with the matter by simply wanting to change the topic.
Donald Trump says he has sent a team of investigators to Hawaii to find out about Barack Obama’s birth certificate. Trump says: “You won’t believe what they’re finding.”
Trump says the only thing Obama has done well is get elected. Says ObamaCare is a total disaster. Says the world “laughs at us” because of Obama’s incompetence. Says Obama is destroying the country.
I can’t want to see what Trump’s team of detectives and investigators comes up with in Hawaii on the true origins of Obama’s birth. Gotta love The Donald.
Trump seems to think this issue could become the defining issue of the 2012 campaign.
What a scream.
The Donald also says he’s a Tea Partier. The rest of the GOP field looks pretty lame. Why not The Donald for President in 2012?
We’d probably see some Bimbo Eruptions. But that didn’t seem to hurt Bill Clinton.
At least, Trump has actually run something . . . and been very successful at it.
Trump asks some common-sense questions about Obama’s background — like: Who is this guy?And why do we still know almost nothing about Obama?
POLITICAL TICKER: Donald Trump, the business mogul who continues to claim he is seriously interested in mounting a bid for the White House, says he has doubts about whether President Obama was born in the United States.
In an interview with ABC, Trump said he finds it strange “nobody knew” Obama as a young child in Hawaii.
“Let me tell you, I’m a really smart guy. I was a really good student at the best school in the country. The reason I have a little doubt, just a little, is because he grew up and nobody knew him,” Trump said in the interview that aired Thursday.
“If I got the nomination, if I decide to run, you may go back and interview people from my kindergarten. They’ll remember me. Nobody comes forward. Nobody knows who he is until later in his life. It’s very strange,” the Celebrity Apprentice host added. “The whole thing is very strange.”
Remember: Anyone who questions Obama’s eligibility to be Prez is self-evidently nuts.
This must also be true for the Supreme Court of the United States.
WND: In a stunning move, the U.S. Supreme Court has scheduled another “conference” on a legal challenge to Barack Obama’s eligibility to occupy the Oval Office, but officials there are not answering questions about whether two justices given their jobs by Obama will participate.
The court has confirmed that it has distributed a petition for rehearing in the case brought by attorney John Hemenway on behalf of retired Col. Gregory Hollister and it will be the subject of a conference on March 4.
It was in January that the court denied, without comment, a request for a hearing on the arguments. But the attorney at the time had submitted a motion for Justices Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan, who were given their jobs by Obama, to recuse.
Should Obama ultimately be shown to have been ineligible for the office, his actions, including his appointments, at least would be open to challenge and question.
“Except Obama!” screamed from House gallery during reading of constitutional citizenship provision for President
When Rep. Frank Pallone (D-N.J.) read a part of Article II, Section 1 of the Constitution mandating that only a “natural-born citizen” may be president, a woman, seated in the front row of the public gallery, screamed “Except Obama, except Obama. Help us Jesus.”
