I agree with O’Reilly’s analysis of Trump’s “bombastic” entrance into Republican politics. The reason why he’s “catching on” couldn’t be more obvious:
Trump isn’t tip-toeing around issues like Obama’s birth certificate, and school records, he’s hitting them with a sledge-hammer. People are fed up with the praetorian guard (AKA the MSM) protecting this man. Frustratingly, even most in the “respectable” conservative media have been too timid to broach the subject, even though Obama’s professed personal narrative has gaping holes, or doesn’t add up. Finally, someone is willing to go out there and ask the questions a lot of us want answers to. I don’t know what it is that’s on his birth certificate that he doesn’t want seen, but his refusal to produce it speaks for itself. And make no mistake. Despite the Democrat Media complex’s best efforts, the issue is no longer toxic to Republicans. It’s toxic to Obama.
CNN did an investigative report which fairly conclusively establishes that Obama was born in Hawaii, but this jumped out at me:
Obama could file a Freedom of Information Act request to view his original birth certificate and make copies. But at this point, the White House maintains, nothing will satisfy the doubters.
Don’t you think that if he had done this a long time ago, it would have satisfied the vast majority of doubters? An Army doctor who refused to deploy again to Afghanistan because he questioned Obama legitimacy, has been serving a six-month term at Ft. Leavenworth in Kansas. Wouldn’t you think that the Commander in Chief would feel obligated to do everything in his power to prove to our men and women in uniform, that he’s a natural born citizen?
Only 38% of U.S. citizens are willing to say they’re sure that he was born on U.S. soil. And still, Obama won’t produce the goods? What’s up with that?
“Well I’ve been told very recently, Anderson, that the birth certificate is missing,” Trump told CNN’s Anderson Cooper Monday. “I’ve been told that it’s not there or it doesn’t exist. And if that’s the case it’s a big problem.”
That jibes with what a Hawaiian elections clerk has been saying…
The former Hawaii elections official who maintains there’s no long-form birth certificate for Barack Obama in the Aloha State is now saying the president and his aides have been “caught fibbing” about Obama’s background, and the “embarrassing” situation is making it difficult to fess up to the truth.
Tim Adams, who was senior elections clerk for the city and county of Honolulu during the 2008 campaign, made the statements in a two-hour interview with a group looking to disprove claims made by so-called birthers, those challenging Obama’s legal qualification to be president.
“I think people believe there’s been some kind of cover-up. And I don’t think it’s some big nefarious conspiracy. I think it’s politics as usual,” Adams said March 31 on Reality Check Radio, an Internet program on BlogTalkRadio.
“Barack Obama’s official autobiography was put out to the public for the public’s consumption and we all know politicians – they have a public persona, it’s created for consumption by the electorate – and I think that they’ve been caught fibbing, and it’s embarrassing.”
Governor Abercrombie reportedly told a friend back in January, after searching, that there are no Obama birth records in his state.
Now Trump is hammering Obama on his school records. In an interview with NBC New York, yesterday, he said: Obama Was a Terrible Student, Terrible… Not Good Enough For Harvard:
Manhattan real estate mogul Donald Trump suggested in an interview Monday that President Barack Obama had been a poor student who did not deserve to be admitted to the Ivy League universities he attended. Trump, who is mulling a bid for the Republican presidential nomination, offered no proof for his claim but said he would continue to press the matter as he has the legitimacy of the president’s birth certificate.
“I heard he was a terrible student, terrible. How does a bad student go to Columbia and then to Harvard?” Trump said in an interview with The Associated Press. “I’m thinking about it, I’m certainly looking into it. Let him show his records.”
Doctor John Drew, Ph.D knew Obama when he was a revolutionary Marxist at Occidental, and had this to say in a radio interview with Paul Kengor:
Drew: Yeah, my sense is because of affirmative action, guys like me were going to Occidental instead of even better schools and guys like Obama were going to Occidental instead of, uh, less challenging schools. A lot of very successful people were there, were part of Obama’s social circle at the time.
Kengor:: Now, was Occidental known for radical left politics? Would that have been an attraction for Obama?
Drew:: Yeah, I’m certain that it was. It was considered sort of the “Moscow” of southern California. There were a lot of Marxist professors, many of whom I got to know pretty well, not just there but also at Williams College in Massachusetts. Two of the same Marxist-Socialist professors were on the staff with me at Williams.
Kengor: So, that might have been an attraction for him? I’m trying to think, what would have made him go to Hawaii to Occidental? Do you think Frank Marshall Davis could somehow have been an influence in having him choose Occidental?
Drew: I don’t have any evidence of that…
Kengor: Because they won’t release his records, I called them –
Drew: Yeah, I think that’s odd. I don’t know, I got straight A’s my first year, it sounds weird, but I don’t talk about it, Paul, you’d think that if Obama did well he’d release those transcripts.
Is it possible that Donald Trump has decided that the best way to make the media cover these issues is by bringing them up as a candidate for President?
Two men who know Trump have expressed doubt that he’s serious about running. Chris Christie, who calls Trump, “a very good friend”, stated in an interview with Diane Sawyer, that he doesn’t believe Trump “really wants to be President” – “I’ll believe it when I see it”.
And Howard Stern recently said: “Look! Ahhh…I know Donald Trump. He’s not running for President. He’s not going to run…It is, as you said… a joke. He’s doing it because it’s fun, and he’s out there doing his thing, and he’s having a good time with it, but he’s not running for president.”
Maybe Trump’s “thing” is – he can’t stand Obama, thinks he’s a fraud who’s hellbent on transforming the nation from the “Shining City on a Hill” into a third-world Socialist sh** hole., and is putting his foot down by doing everything in his power to get these issues out in the mainstream media where they can damage Obama going into the 2012 election.
Maybe Trump, in his own way, is being a patriot.
