Before I comment on this, I thought it was a joke when I heard Trump is wanting to run for President. The last thing USA needs is another stupid President, just like Bush.
Like there aren’t more important things to do then make an issue of this. Seriously?? Do you think they’ll make someone President without doing extensive background checks including showing your birth certificate? Are people that stupid?
Well, I never had respect nor liked the clown, Donald Trump. He’s a f**in moron! Who the hell does he think he is to make a bigger issue and issue that shouldn’t even be an issue, the Obama’s birth certificate. Now that Obama’s administration released a copy of Obama’s Live of Birth, Trump thinks he’s Superman suddenly.
Trump actually makes Sarah Palin look intelligent.
And then Trump criticises Obama’s academics???
Trump should be the last person to question someone’s academics. Every time he opens his mouth he looks more stupid. So stupid he probably thinks his present wife is really in love with him.
Why doesn’t Trump reveal his financial? Or academics?? And when that happens I am sure he’ll go in hiding.
And why are people in the USA making this an issue? It’s because majority of the southern US states are a bunch of racists. Anything to bring Obama down because there’s nothing else to nitpick.
Only in the USA.
Obama will be on Oprah on Monday.
WASHINGTON—The White House attempted on Wednesday to put to rest a stubborn conspiracy theory gripping the imaginations of suspicious-minded conservatives by releasing U.S. President Barack Obama’s long-form birth certificate.
Like the shorter version of the document released in 2008 by the Obama campaign as he ran for president, this one, too, certifies he was born in August 1961 in the state of Hawaii, meaning he’s eligible to be president.
“Over the last two and a half years, I have watched with bemusement; I have been puzzled at the degree to which this thing just kept on going,” Obama, smiling at first, told a White House briefing as he outlined the many documents released during that time period that prove he was born in Hawaii.
He then grew more serious, complaining that the so-called birther issue was getting more attention than the grave matters facing the nation.
“We do not have time for this kind of silliness … we’re not going to be able to solve our problems if we get distracted by sideshows and carnival barkers.”
Enter Donald Trump, the bombastic billionaire who’s toying with running for the Republican presidential nomination. Trump has reinvigorated the so-called birther issue by casting doubt on Obama’s birthplace and saying he’d sent a team of investigators to Hawaii to get to the bottom of the alleged mystery.
Trump took immediate credit for forcing the White House into the move and, indeed, there’s little doubt his entry into the fray vexed the Obama administration.
“I am really honoured and I am really proud that I was able to do something that no one else was able to do,” Trump said in a media scrum with reporters in New Hampshire where he faced a series of tough questions.
“From Day 1, I said I hope he gives the certificate because I don’t want this issue to cloud the campaign.”
Trump then moved on to accusing Obama of getting bad grades at university and urged him to release his academic records.
News of the White House move had barely broken when online conspiracy theorists saw additional conspiracy in the announcement itself, something Obama predicted would happen during his news conference.
Some theorists wondered: Why was the White House releasing it now?
Conservative pundit Glenn Beck believed he had the answer, saying on his radio show that Obama only released the birth certificate to distract from a news conference being held by Federal Reserve chief Ben Bernanke.
“Something is coming, gang, something is coming,” he said.
It’s a fake, others asserted.
“The birth certificate: Is it real?” read a headline on the Smoking Gun website. The site’s story made mention of curious smudges and other allegedly mysterious elements of the document.
“Why, if Obama was born on August 4, 1961, was the ‘Date Accepted by Local Reg.’ four days later on August 8, 1961?” it asked breathlessly.
On the conservative Red State website, others went further.
“Let’s not accept it at face value. We need someone to start looking into recent purchases of printing apparatuses from the ‘60s,” wrote one commentator.
Conspiracy theories, indeed, die hard in the United States of America.
A veritable cottage industry still surrounds the assassination of John F. Kennedy almost 50 years ago, with alleged culprits ranging from the CIA to the mob, Fidel Castro and Lyndon Johnson, or a combination of them all.
While a congressional report determined in 1979 that Lee Harvey Oswald likely did not act alone on Nov. 22, 1963, a new book even alleges a UFO connection.
Author William Lester says he uncovered a memo written by JFK to the CIA, requesting confidential information about UFOs. It was allegedly written 10 days before his assassination.
Others believe passionately that the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, were an “inside job” perpetrated by the George W. Bush administration, asserting that the twin towers of the World Trade Center in lower Manhattan were brought down by timed explosions. And a guided missile, they allege, not a jetliner, hit the Pentagon.
A new batch of documents released by the WikiLeaks website seems to dispel the inside job theory.
The documents, based on the interrogation of prisoners at Guantanamo Bay, reveal that Khalid Sheik Mohammed, the 9-11 mastermind, was in Karachi, Pakistan, watching the events unfold on television with another coordinator of the operation.
“After the success of the attacks, the operatives prostrated themselves and gave thanks to Allah,” one document says.
