McCain's Dossier Connection and Obama Life Lies about His Birth Certificate and Harvard Costs -- Lingering Thoughts from 2017
THE REAL NEWS TODAY IS THAT 2017 IS ALMOST OVER. And I'm trying to cram all my still unspoken thoughts into a few lines. • • • THE RUSSIA DOSSIER. American Thinker's Thomas Lifson wrote on Thursday an article that gives me hope for the final dismissal of the Russia Dossier, the idea that Trump or his team "colluded" with the Russians or anybody else, and the sense that special counsel Robert Mueller is living on borrowed-time life support. Lifson wrote : "I am hoping 2018 will be the year of blowback for those who colluded to use the FBI and DOJ to prevent the election and then the presidency of Donald Trump....There is a growing belief among some congressional investigators that the Russians who provided information to Steele were using Steele to disrupt the American election as much as the Russians who distributed hacked Democratic Party emails. In some investigators' views, they are the two sides of the Trump-Russia project, both aimed at sowing chaos and discord in the American political system. Investigators who favor this theory ask a sensible question : Is it likely that all the Russians involved in the attempt to influence the 2016 election were lying, scheming, Kremlin-linked, Putin-backed enemies of America – except the Russians who talked to Christopher Steele?" • That question lays bare the No Evidence Nonsense that America and President Trump have endured for 18 months. The gestation period for the Asian elephant is 18 - 22 months, and for the African bush elephant, it is 22 months. Donald Trump is an elephant -- a true Republican elephant -- as the GOP's symbol is the elephant. Perhaps by June 2018, all the No Evidence Trump haters will have been silenced by the rebirth of the GOP Trump Elephant. Perhaps it is the gentation period we are experiencing. Perhaps the Trump presidency has had to be borne by us Deplorables as a pregnancy, and we are waiting to give birth to the conservative Republican President Trump we know exists. • To be very serious, although gestation is also a very serious matter, Lifson goes on to say : "The idea that the Russians favored Trump has always struck me as ridiculous. Putin had already discovered that nine-figure donations to the Clinton Foundation would buy permission to start cornering the world uranium market, a longtime goal of his. And Putin's foreign policy goals had advanced sharply under Hillary's stewardship at State. The mess she triggered in Libya is still bedeviling the US and our European allies, who are drowning under waves of refugees. From his point of view, what's not to like about a Hillary presidency?" And as Tom Maguire wrote : "The DNC and Hillary campaigns were paying large sums of money to "collude" with the Russian sources that were libeling Trump in the Dossier. In order to win the election! Now that "collusion" with Russia has been identified as a sin, the Democrats have a lot to answer for. It's going to be an interesting year." • • • WHAT DID JOHN McCAIN KNOW AND WHEN DID HE KNOW IT??? TheHill's Olivia Beavers wrote on Wednesday that : "The House Intelligence Committee has issued a subpoena to an associate of Senator John McCain (R-Ariz.) over his connection with the controversial Dossier containing unverified allegations about President Trump and his ties to Russia." TheHill confirmed on Wednesday that House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes wants to talk to David Kramer, a former State Department official and current senior director at the nonprofit McCain Institute -- Senator McCain insists he has nothing to do with the McCain Institute, it just uses his name, got it? -- about his visit to London in November 2016, a source familiar with the matter confirmed. The story of David Kramer and the Russia Dossier flows thus, according to TheHill : "While in London, Kramer met with the dossier's author, former British spy Christopher Steele, at McCain's request, to view 'the pre-election memoranda on a confidential basis,' according to court filings. Kramer then flew back to the US and delivered a copy of the memos to McCain, who then handed the documents to the FBI." • The subpoena for Kramer to appear before House investigators on January 11 comes after his December meeting with the Committee. The Russia Dossier has long been a key interest of Republicans, who want to find out if its claims were used as the basis for a surveillance warrant on Trump campaign associates. Democrats, on the other hand, are interested to learn whether the allegations made against the President in the Dossier are true, because most of the Dossier remains unverified. But, we know that the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign partly funded the Dossier, by paying a law firm to handle the relationship with the opposition research firm Fusion GPS that created and distributed it. • I know John McCain is a very sick man whose life may already have largely played out. I know Reagan's 11th Commandment about never speaking ill of fellow Republicans. BUT, I cannot help but wonder whether John McCain hates Donald Trump so profoundly that he was willing to risk his reputation by organizing to tout to the US Intel community and FBI a sleazy Dossier with the goal of destroying his enemy -- the Republican who could, like the little red train engine, while McCain could not, get to the White House. Trump has resoundingly dismissed the memo as "fake." McCain's office did not immediately respond to requests of TheHill for comment. I sincerely hope I am wrong -- that Senator McCain was just getting the Dossier into his hands as the chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee for transmittal to the FBI. I sincerely hope that Senator McCain did not, when Kramer delivered the salacious Dossier to him, read it and say 'Ah-ha, At last I've got him' and then decide that the FBI was the best vehicle for destroying President Trump. I sincerely hope. • • • SHUTTING DOWN THE OBAMA LIFE-LIES -- HARVARD. Back in September 2008, while Barack Obama was still a candidate in his first presidential campaign, Newsmax contributor Kenneth R. Timmerma asked : "How exactly did Barack Obama pay for his Harvard Law School education?" Timmerman said the way the Obama campaign has answered the question was "simply hard work and student loans." But, Timmerman pointed out new questions raised "about Obama’s student loans and Obama’s ties to a radical Moslem activist who reportedly was raising money for Obama’s Harvard studies during the years 1988 to 1991. The allegations first surfaced in late March, 2008, when former Manhattan Borough president Percy Sutton told a New York cable channel that a former business partner who was 'raising money' for Obama had approached him in 1988 to help Obama get into Harvard Law School. In the interview, Sutton says he first heard of Obama about twenty years ago from Khalid Al-Mansour, a Black Moslem and Black Nationalist who was a 'mentor' to the founders of the Black Panther party at its founding in the early 1960s. Sutton described al-Mansour as advisor to 'one of the world’s richest men,' Saudi prince Alwaleed bin Talal. • Prince Alwaleed -- now under arrest and being investigated in Saudi Arabia for corruption-related charges -- catapulted to fame in the United States after the September 11 attacks, when New York mayor Rudy Guiliani refused his $10 million check to help rebuild Manhattan, because the Saudi prince hinted publicly that America’s pro-Israel policies were to blame for the attacks. • Sutton knew Al-Mansour well, since the two men had been business partners and served on several corporate boards together. As Sutton remembered, Al-Mansour was raising money for Obama’s education and seeking recommendations for him to attend Harvard Law School : “I was introduced to (Obama) by a friend who was raising money for him,” Sutton told NY1 city hall reporter Dominic Carter, adding “The friend’s name is Dr. Khalid al-Mansour, from Texas.” • Obama spokesman Ben LaBolt told Newsmax that Sutton’s account was “bogus” and a “fabrication that has been retracted” by a spokesman for the Sutton family. LaBolt referred Newsmax to a pro-Obama blog published on Politico.com by reporter Ben Smith. In a September 3, 2008, blog entry, Smith wrote that “a spokesman for Sutton’s family, Kevin Wardally” said that Sutton had been mistaken when he made those comments about Obama and Khalid Al-Mansour." Smith suggested the retraction “put the [Obama/Al-Mansour] story to rest for good.” Wardally told Smith : "the information Mr. Percy Sutton imported [sic] on March 25 in a NY1 News interview regarding his connection to Barack Obama is inaccurate. As best as our family and the Chairman’s closest friends can tell, Mr. Sutton, now 86 years of age, misspoke in describing certain details and events in that television interview.” When asked which parts of Percy Sutton’s statements were a “fabrication,” LaBolt said “all of it. Al Mansour doesn’t know Obama. And Sutton’s spokesman retracted the story. The letter [to Harvard, which Percy Sutton says he wrote on behalf of Obama], the ‘payments for loans’ -- all of it, not true,” he added. • Newsmax contacted the Sutton family and they categorically denied Wardally’s claims to Smith and Politico.com. So there was no retraction of Sutton’s original interview, during which he revealed that Khalid Al-Mansour was “raising money” for Obama and had asked Sutton to write a letter of recommendation for Obama to help him get accepted at Harvard Law School. Sutton’s personal assistant told Newsmax that neither Mr. Sutton or his family had ever heard of Kevin Wardally. ”Who is this person?” Sutton’s assistant, Karen Malone asked Newsmax. When told that he portrayed himself as a “spokesman” for the family, Malone told Newsmax, “Well, he’s not.” • Timmerman stated in the 2008 Newsmax article that : "According to a 2006 New York magazine profile, Wardally is part of a 'New New Guard' in Harlem politics that has been challenging the 'lions' of the old guard, Charles Rangel and Percy Sutton. That makes him an unlikely candidate to speak on behalf of Sutton. Sutton maintains an office at the Manhattan headquarters of the firm he founded, Inner City Broadcasting Corporation. ICBC owns New York radio stations WBLS and WLIB. Sutton’s son Pierre (“Pepe”) runs ICBC along with his daughter, Keisha Sutton-James. Malone told Newsmax that she had consulted with Sutton’s family members at the station and confirmed that no one knew Kevin Wardally or had authorized him to speak on behalf of the family." • Asked to explain why it was that no one at Inner City Broadcasting Corp. knew of him or accepted him as a family spokesman, Wardally responded later that he had been retained by a nephew of the elder Sutton, who “is in our office almost every week.” Wardally works for Bill Lynch Associations, a Harlem political consulting firm. The nephew, Chuck Sutton, no longer works with the elder Sutton at Inner City Broadcasting, but for a high-tech start-up called Synematics. “Percy Sutton doesn’t go out idly on television saying things he doesn’t mean,” a well-connected black entrepreneur who knows Sutton told Newsmax. • Ben LaBolt’s claim that “Al Mansour doesn’t know Obama” was contradicted by Al Mansour himself in an extended interview with Newsmax. Comparing the revelation of his ties to Obama to the controversy surrounding Reverend Jeremiah Wright, Al Mansour said that he was determined to keep a low profile to avoid embarrassing Obama : “In respect to Mr. Obama, I have told him, because so many people are running after him...I was determined that I was never going to be in that situation.” Al Mansour said he was deliberately avoiding any contact with the candidate : “I’m not involved in any way in celebrity sweepstakes. I wish him well, anything I can do if he lets me know, I’ll let him know what I think I can do or can’t. But I don’t collect autographs. I wish him the best, and hope he can win the election.” He repeatedly declined to comment on the Percy Sutton allegations, either to confirm or to deny them. • This background leads into another Barack Obama mystery. Then-Senator Obama refused to instruct Harvard Law School to release any information about his time there as a student, or about his student loans. Newsmax reported that it contacted the Dean of Students, the Director of Student Financial Services, the Registrar, and the Bursar of Harvard Law School. None would provide any specific information on Barack Obama’s time at Harvard, except for his dates of attendance (1988-1991) or his year of graduation, 1991. A spokesman for the law school, Michael Armini, told Newsmax it was Harvard policy not to divulge information on alumni without their approval. • Sources close to the Sutton family told Newsmax that Percy Sutton wrote a letter of recommendation for Obama to Ogletree at Khalid Al-Mansour’s request, but Ogletree declined to answer Newsmax questions about this. • The issue Newsmax was trying to resolve was the matter of payment for Obama's suudies at Harvard Law School. Harvard Law School spokesman Michael Armini told Newsmax that Harvard was “very generous” with financial aid, but only on the basis of need. The Obama campaign told Newsmax that Obama self-financed his three years at Harvard Law School with loans, and did not receive any scholarship from Harvard Law school. LaBolt denied that Obama received any financial assistance from Harvard or from outside parties. “No -- he paid his way through by taking out loans,” he said in an email to Newsmax. • At the time, Harvard cost around $25,000 a year, or $75,000 for the three years that Obama attended. And as president of the Harvard Law Review, he received no stipend from the school, Harvard spokesman Mike Armini said : “That is considered a volunteer position. There is no salary or grant associated with it.” • So if the figures cited by the Obama campaign for the Senator’s student loans are accurate, it means Obama came up with more than $32,000 over three years from sources other than loans to pay for tuition, room and board. Where did he find the money? Did it come from friends of Khalid Al Mansour? And why would a radical Moslem activist with ties to the Saudi royal family be raising money for Barack Obama? All are question the Obama campaign still won’t answer. • BUT, Michelle Obama, speaking at a campaign event in Haverford, Pa, in April, 2008, claimed that her husband had “just paid off his loan debt” for his Harvard Law School education. In an appearance in Zanesville, Ohio, in February, 2008, she bemoaned the fact that many American families were strapped with student loan payments for years after graduation : “The only reason we’re not in that position is that Barack wrote two best-selling books,” she said. The first of those best-sellers netted the couple $1.2 million in royalties in 2005. • In response to Newsmax questions about the Obama’s college loans, a campaign spokesman cited a report in the Chicago Sun claiming that Obama borrowed $42,753 to pay for Harvard Law School, and “tens of thousands” more to pay for undergraduate studies at Columbia. The same report said that Michelle Obama borrowed $40,762 to pay for her years at Harvard Law School. But, a Newsmax review of Senator Obama’s financial disclosures found no trace of any outstanding college loans, going back to 2000. • As a US Senate candidate, Barack Obama was required to file a financial disclosure form in 2004 detailing his assets, income, consulting contracts, and liabilities. Newsmax says that "Obama listed 'zero' under liabilities in 2004 and in all subsequent US Senate financial disclosure forms. Under the Senate ethics rules, he is required to disclose any loan, including credit card debt, of $10,000 or more. The only exception to the reporting requirement is mortgage debt on a principal residence. The Senate reports also directly contradict Michelle Obama’s claim that the couple had 'only just' paid off their student loans after receiving book royalties paid out in 2005 and 2006 -- well after her husband had been elected to the Senate." • Apparently, Michelle Obama misspoke, according to the version provided by the Obama campaign by Newsmax." Campaign spokesman Ben LaBolt told Newsmax that the loans Senator Obama took out to pay for Harvard Law School “were repaid in full while he was a candidate for the US Senate [in 2004], and under the rules, the modest outstanding balance he repaid was not reportable as a liability on his personal financial disclosure reports.” The Senator repaid the loans on “the expectation of a significant increase in family income” as a result of the paperback edition of his 1995 book, Dreams of My Father, LaBolt said....The paperback eventually sold over one million copies, which under the standard industry royalty for trade paperbacks of 7.5%, earned him $1.2 million. But, Obama didn’t report income from the book until 2005, so it’s unclear how he was able to repay his student loans in 2004." Obama spokesman Ben LaBolt had no answer as to why the Obamas failed to declare the loans, stating the obvious that “because interest on the loans was not deducted, it would not appear on the Obamas’ personal return.” • Was Barack Obama funded at Columbia and Harvard Law School by the radical Saudi billionaire Prince Alwaleed bin Talal? Did Obama have support from Khalid Al-Mansour, a Black Moslem and Black Nationalist who was a 'mentor' to the founders of the Black Panther party? We do not know. Just as we do not know what Barack Obama wrote while in either university because all his papers have been sequestered and are not available to the press or public. What we do know is that Barack Obama has more secrets -- more personal information -- carefully hidden away from the American public than any other President of modern times. WHY??? • • • SHUTTING DOWN THE OBAMA LIFE-LIES -- THE BIRTH CERTIFICATE. In late November, TheHill's Jacqueline Thomsen wrote : "President Trump is still privately questioning the authenticity of former President Obama’s birth certificate." Thomsen was quoting the New York Times. A Senator, who asked not to be named, told the NYT that Trump is "having difficulty moving on from his past claims that Obama wasn’t born in the United States. Trump led the 'birther' movement against Obama, claiming for years that the former President was born outside of the US. Obama eventually released a copy of a Certificate of Live Birth to counter Trump’s claims. During the presidential campaign, Trump grudgingly said 'Okay, Obama was born in the US. I'm saying it,' or words to that effect. • InfoWars published an article by Jerome Corsi on December 12 that stated : "Infowars.com has learned former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s investigators had discovered bombshell evidence that the CIA and or other government entities illegally hacked into Hawaii Department of Health records searching for birth records on Barack Obama. According to information received by the investigators, the government breaches began on November 14, 2008, just after Obama won his first presidential election, and continued until January 12, 2011, three months before the White House released a computer version of what President Obama claimed was his authentic “Long-Form Birth Certificate” from 1961. Michael Zullo, formerly the commander and chief investigator of the Cold Case Posse (CCP), a special investigative group created in 2006 in the office of Joseph M. Arpaio, formerly the sheriff in Maricopa County, an Arizona State Certified Law Enforcement Agency, headquartered in Phoenix, Arizona, provided Infowars.com sections of an electronic surveillance database created by whistleblower, Dennis Montgomery, in 2013. • The electronic surveillance database provided to Zullo in late 2013 by then-confidential informant, Dennis Montgomery, working with Sheriff Arpaio’s office, according to InfoWars : "was apparently created by the NSA as part of the NSA’s illegal and unconstitutional Project Dragnet electronic surveillance of US citizens, first revealed by news reports published in 2005, as further documented by the revelations of whistleblower Edward Snowden in 2013. As Infowars.com reported in June, the decision of a federal court to take the case of former contractor Dennis Montgomery advances the story Infowars.com reported in March that the National Security Agency illegally conducted surveillance of potentially millions of citizens for years, with a database that suggests both Donald J. Trump and Alex Jones were under unauthorized government monitoring. The description of the Montgomery lawsuit can be accessed at < https://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/klayman-and-montgomery-file-for-tro-against-comey-and-fbi-nsa-and-cia---defendants-in-case-alleging-obstruction-of-justice-300476903.html >. Montgomery is represented by well-known conservative attorney and Judicial Watch founder Larry Klayman. • Montgomery ultimately turned over to the FBI 47 hard drives including information he supplied to Zullo concerning Obama’s fraudulent birth certificate and highly classified information he had removed from the NSA. On December 15, 2016, Arpaio and Zullo held a press conference releasing the results of a multiple-year forensic investigation concluding the computer image that Barack Obama released on April 27, 2011, of his alleged Long-Form Birth Certificate (LFBC) was a forgery. The evidence Arpaio and Zullo have now released to Infowars.com -- including a list of the CIA IP addresses used in the breaches of Hawaii Government Department of Health Vital Records, the Hawaii Government Department of Health Archives, and the Hawaii Government, Office of the Governor -- strongly suggests the CIA played a role in the forgery, breaching Hawaii government computers in the Obama birth certificate quest. The InfoWars article can be accessed at < https://www.infowars.com/bombshell-evidence-of-cia-role-in-forging-obamas-birth-certificate/ >. • InfoWars states that other data indicates the CIA also breached the University of Hawaii’s extensive records on Hawaii history and genealogy. The IP addresses, both from the Hawaii government offices breached and from the CIA proxy IP addresses used in the breaches. Zullo said : “Montgomery also traced the IP data paths of the breached servers and discovered on a number of occasions information was sent from the breached Hawaii computers, only to be routed to a server located in Jakarta, Indonesia. From Indonesia, the data was sent back through the server in Jakarta, routed back to government servers in the United States. Montgomery claims the server used in Jakarta was operated by the CIA at the time the breaches were executed.” • Zullo explained to Infowars.com that when Montgomery first brought this information regarding the CIA breaching the Hawaii government offices to investigators in 2013, the information was considered a “universe shattering” discovery : "especially when this information was paired with other information Arpaio’s investigator already had collected prior to 2013 but had yet to reveal. In specific, while investigating in Hawaii, Zullo had received specific information a person connected to top officials in the Hawaii Department of Health alleging that prior to the release of Obama’s Long-Form Birth Certificate by the White House on April 27, 2011, the Hawaii Department of Health was in the process of forging a birth certificate for Obama. Additionally, Arpaio’s investigators sent to Hawaii were told that this same person had validated to trusted sources that an Obama birth certificate had been forged and that the attending physician named on the forged document was known to be deceased, and was believed to have destroyed all birth records after leaving practice. According to this trusted source in Hawaii, a deceased physician with no known archived practice records was considered by forgers to be the ideal physician of record to name on the forged birth certificate manufactured for Obama." • InfoWars says : "Subsequently, Zullo also received credible information from two sources that two different independent hospital administrators in meetings held in 2008, as Obama was preparing to run for President, participated in searches of all hospital records on the island to identify which hospital was Obama’s birth hospital. Both hospital administrators attested that no hospital in Hawaii had any records proving Ann Dunham Obama had been a patient, or that Barack Hussein Obama was born there. 'Queens Hospital was the hospital originally named by the Obama family as the birth hospital, but when it developed that Queens did not have records of Obama’s birth, the family shifted to story to claim Obama was born at Kapiolani Hospital,' Zullo told Infowars.com. 'Queens Hospital quickly reported publicly that Obama was not born in their hospital,' Zullo continued. 'The admission of Queens Hospital that no birth record existed presented a serious problem for the already belabored Obama birth narrative,' Zullo said. Kapiolani refused to comment neither confirming nor denying Kapiolani Hospital was Obama’s birth hospital,' he stressed. 'To date, Kapiolani has not produced a single shred of evidence that any original birth records exist, nor has Kapiolani Hospital ever produced any supporting documentation or released any information that proves Stanley Ann Dunham was a patient at Kapiolani in August 1961 who gave birth to a son, Barack Obama, supposedly born on August 4, 1961,' Zullo insisted." • Adding further skepticism surrounding the validity of the Obama Certificate, was the fact that, according to InfoWars : "Hawaii Governor Neil Abercrombie gave an interview to the Honolulu Star-Advertiser in 2011, announcing he had launched an investigation into the matter of Obamas birth record, promising he would be able to locate the original copy of Obama’s long-form birth certificate that he would subsequently make public. As of 2011, Abercrombie did not report to the newspaper that he or the Hawaii Department of Health had found Obama’s Long-Form Birth Certificate. To the contrary, he only suggested his investigations to date had identified a rather obscure listing or notation of Obama’s birth that someone had made in the state archives. Abercrombie did not report to the newspaper that he or the Hawaii Department of Health had found Obama’s long-form, hospital-generated birth certificate. The governor only suggested his investigations to date had identified an unspecified listing or notation of Obama’s birth that someone had made in some unspecified archive. 'It was actually written, I am told, this is what our investigation is showing, it actually exists in the archives, written down,' Abercrombie said. Zullo discounted Abercrombie’s 2011 claim. 'If Abercrombie’s allegation is to be believed, it is apparent that what Abercrombie claims to have discovered was an unspecified document or some type of written indication of Obama’s birth event that someone would have made over 50 years ago on a piece of paper found buried in some archive out of the customary chain of custody for official vital statistics birth records documents,' Zullo told Infowars.com. Zullo stressed the achieved document Abercrombie claimed to have found has never been made public." • “What is clear from Abercrombie’s statements is the fact that he could not locate the original vital record at the Hawaii Department of Health, in other words, there was no Long-Form Birth Certificate located in the file vault at Hawaii Department of Health in 2011,” Zullo pointed out. “Had an original Long-Form Birth Certificate existed for Obama, I would have thought Governor Abercrombie would have been able to locate it rather easily,” Zullo concluded. • Zullo went on to point out to InfoWars that a written statement of former Hawaii Director of Public Health Dr. Chiyome Fukino issued in October 2008 cast further doubt that an original 1961 LFBC for Obama ever existed in the Hawaii Department of Health archives. On October 31, 2008, Fukino issued a statement that read in part : “Therefore, I as Director of Health for the State of Hawaii, along with the Registrar of Vital Statistics who has statutory authority to oversee and maintain these type of vital records, have personally seen and verified that the Hawaii State Department of Health has Senator Obama’s original birth certificate on record in accordance with state policies and procedures." BUT, says Zullo : “No state official, including Governor Linda Lingle, has ever instructed that this vital record be handled in a manner different from any other vital record in the possession of the State of Hawaii.” • Zullo noted : “The problem here is that Fukino claims to have physically inspected the original birth certificate in 2008. However, in 2011 some 3 years later Governor Abercrombie goes on an exhaustive search to locate the same document, but it is nowhere to be found. It is not in the bound volume as in accordance with state policies and procedures. Somebody is lying.” • Zullo explained to Infowars.com that this investigatory background lent credence to Montgomery’s claims in 2013 that the CIA or some other government actors had covertly breached Hawaii government computers looking for original and authentic Obama birth records : “The CIA breach would also enable the undetectable insertion of fraudulent digital information of a fictitious birth event to be surreptitiously implanted into the Hawaii Department of Health vital records computers database. Once the fictitious record has been created that would allow an unsuspecting clerk to simply locate the fraudulent record in the computer database and print a computer-generated Short-Form Birth Certificate (SFBC) without ever verifying the existence of the original Long Form Certificate (LFBC) in the file room vault. Hawaii did in fact originally produce a Short-Form Birth Certificate in 2008. In an attempt to quell the growing controversy and to satisfy the questions surrounding the Obama birth narrative, a Short-Form was released in 2008 during Obama’s presidential campaign. However, that was a digital record and not an original Long Form Birth Certificate. This did not satisfy the growing number of skeptics.” • Zullo stressed that Montgomery’s information does provide a possible scenario in which government operatives would have had the ability to insert Obama’s birth records electronically into the Hawaii government official database by breaching the Hawaii government computers without detection of the intrusion. Zullo concluded : "While it may have been easy for the Hawaii Department of Health to produce a Short-Form Birth Certificate from the information now located in Hawaii’s electronic vital statistics database, the problem came when Obama was forced to produce his Long-Form Certificate of Live Birth. That’s when the White House released to the public via the internet a computer-generated PDF File of a purported Long-Form Birth Certificate claiming to be a copy of Obama’s birth records located in the Hawaii Department of Health vault on April 27, 2011." • This, in Zullo’s analysis, was Obama’s fatal mistake : “What the White House released was not a physical hard copy document. It was not a copy of any verified authentic document, it was absolutely nothing. It was a computer-generated PDF file containing a copy of something that had its metadata erased from the electronic file, making it impossible to determine origin and authenticity of the file.” Because of this, Zullo insisted the PDF file released by the White House on April 27, 2011, as Obama’s legitimate Long-Form Birth Certificate has zero legal probative value and as such cannot be considered an official document created and certified by the issuing State as called for by statute : “This PDF file cannot be relied on as proof a birth event in any legal setting. It is not paper, it was created in cyberspace and resides in a computer. On April 27, 2011, Obama showed the nation and the world absolutely nothing.” • Then, on December 15, 2016, Sheriff Arpaio and Chief Investigator Zullo held a press conference to announce the conclusion of their forensics investigation that established the long-form Hawaiian birth certificate that President Obama released in a White House press conference on April 27, 2011, was a forgery. The White House had claimed the Long-Form Birth Certificate released on April 27, 2011, was a computer copy of the original Obama birth certificate, dated August 4, 1961, that the Hawaii Department of Health has never released publicly, but claims to have in a Department of Health archives vault maintained in Honolulu. At the press conference, Zullo showed a video of Obama’s birth certificate -- alongside one obtained from Johanna Ah’Nee that forensic experts said contained “nine points of forgery” -- establishing that Obama’s Long-Form computer-generated birth certificate released by the White House on April 27, 2011, had been copied from Ah’Nee’s birth certificate. The You Tube video can be accesed at < https://youtu.be/XBw-Q4-slqI >. • I have no proof that the Obama PDF birth certificate is either real or a forgery. But, I have many questions about it and about whether Barack Obama was actually born in the United States. It is long past the time when knowing the truth would have made a practical difference to the Obama presidency. Today, IF Obama is not a natural born citizen eligible to be elected President, perhaps his perks and pensions could be stripped away. More important, perhaps the Supreme Court would agree to nullify all the executive orders he signed, and/or nullify laws he signed, like Obamacare. The real mystery remains -- why would a President not want to present a hard copy of his birth certificate? Why would a President want to be dogged by the allegation that he is not a natural born American citizen. Why would he hide and obfuscate when asked to prove he is a US citizen. • Sadly, logic suggests that he is not a natural born citizen and fraudulently sought and won the presidency. • • • DEAR READERS, Progressives like Barack Obama think that if they lie often and loud enough, the world will believe them. So, they lie about themselves, they lie to their supporters, and they lie about President Trump. They call him anti-Semite -- his Jerusalem actions prove he is Israel’s greatest ally. They call him sexist -- he has contributed to countless women shattering glass ceilings and achieving firsts for female professionals, and three of the most powerful people in the Trump White House are women, but the ProgDems ignore that and call one of them "ugly." They call him a liar -- even while he always strives to keep more campaign promises than any President we’ve ever had. But, these lies push more people to Trump as they judge him for his actions instead of the ProgDem lies. Trump has been and will be accused of many crimes, but none will stick because they are entirely Fake. Obama, I suspect, is now busy setting up Hillary Clinton, Chicago style, as the fall guy -- and it will be easy because of her corrupt life -- for his own administration’s corruption of the FBI, CIA and NSA. Neither Obama nor Hillary can reconcile themselves to honest elections, where there is a chance they'll lose. President Trump won fair and square, relying on his message and his voters. The Democrats are at their wits’ end. They can’t scare Trump. They can’t fool Trump voters. They can’t silence the conservative websites. What was done in dark corners is coming into the light. • As for John McCain, I wish him well. I pray for him. I hope before he dies he comes to terms with the damage he has done to himself and to his country by trying to destroy President Trump. But, try as I may -- just as for Romney and the Bush family -- I cannot forgive John McCain for his treachery toward the only honorable American political party of the past 160 years. The Grand Old Party. May the Trump GOP elephant now feeling its birthing pangs live long and prosper.
