When Donald Trump and Barack Obama’s Paths Crossed or What is the Genesis for all the Trump Hatred?

Before Barack Obama oozed onto the national stage as the keynote speaker at the Democrat National Convention, Donald J. Trump was another Democrat billionaire with a television show, a jet and a helicopter, with skyscraper hotels and golf courses, and another exotic model wife. 

Before running for President, the most “famous” thing Barack Obama had done was “write” two autobiographies.  He had an unremarkable career as a lawyer, a Chicago politician, and a radical past.  How many politicians could get elected being part of a dope-smoking, cocaine-using “choom gang?”  The Apprentice star didn’t touch alcohol.  In many ways Barack Hussein Obama was the antithesis, the polar opposite of Donald John Trump. 

In 2008, Hillary Clinton secured The Donald’s endorsement: “I know Hillary and I think she'd make a great president or vice-president.”  During her campaign, Candidate Clinton questioned the legitimacy of Barack Obama’s citizenship through surrogates.  Barack Hussein Obama II was the child born in the unambiguous State of Hawaii, of a Kenyan father and an American mother. 

For over two hundred years, children across America had been taught the Bill of Rights and the Amendments to the U.S. Constitution.  The special eligibility criterion to be President was always discussed and was probably a test question during examinations: What is a “natural born citizen” under Article II of the U.S. Constitution?  Answer: When a person is born in America to American parents.

Americans with a basic understanding of the U.S. Constitution and knowledge of the autobiographical history of the Democrat President Barack Obama were baffled at how the son of a foreign national could be considered a “natural born citizen?” 

Across the nation, learned men, military men filed lawsuits to challenge the eligibility of Barack Obama to be President.  The former Deputy Attorney General of Pennsylvania and a lifelong Democrat, Philip J. Berg, filed a lawsuit to force Barack Obama to produce a certified copy of his original birth certificate to prove that he could run for the office of President of the United States.  The DNC filed a motion to dismiss the Berg action along with the others.  The cause for dismissal always focused on “standing.”  Only those who would be materially harmed in some way to the election of the candidate possessed “standing.”  If Hillary Clinton had filed a lawsuit, she would have had standing.  Berg did not. 

McClatchy Washington Bureau Chief James Asher, the investigative editor and in charge of Africa coverage, assigned a reporter to go to Kenya, and that reporter determined that the allegations of Barack Obama being born in the country now called Kenya was false.  Media coverage was relentless and stinging.  Questions continued in large part because Republican leaders and right-leaning pundits and academics refused to stand up and make their voices heard.

In a 2009 article, Dr. Jerome Corsi, a “person of interest” who will ignominiously pop up during the Mueller investigation, asked, “Did Obama’s grandmother say he was born in Kenya?”  In 2012, Donald Trump began pushing the issue during television interviews as he considered whether to run against President Obama.  “I have some real doubts,” Trump told the “Today” show.  He claimed to have sent his own investigators to Hawaii, where Obama was born.  “I have people that actually have been studying it and they cannot believe what they're finding.”  Trump raised another issue in an interview with “Good Morning America,” suggesting Obama was trying to conceal his religion by withholding his birth certificate.  “Maybe it says he’s a Muslim,” he said. 

Donald Trump told Mother Jones magazine, “I am proud of the fact that I was able to get President Obama to release his birth certificate.  Hillary Clinton couldn’t do it, Senator McCain couldn’t do it—no one else could do it!  Frankly, many people were surprised that it took so long for this to happen.  Is his birth certificate legitimate?  I hope it is for the good of the country, but that’s for experts to determine—not me.”

Candidate Trump claimed the original “birther” was Hillary Clinton.  Clinton, at a speech in the nation’s capital, said Trump needed to apologize.  “For five years, he has led the birther movement to delegitimize our first black president,” she said. “His campaign was founded on this outrageous lie.” (Italics mine)

To the outrage of the women on theThe View,” Candidate Donald Trump sat on the sofa with Barbara Walters and Whoopi Goldberg and said, “There’s something on that birth certificate that he doesn’t like.”  Well before President Trump became a candidate, he offered millions of dollars for proof that President Obama was born in the U.S.  Trump said in 2014, “Pick your charity, for $50 million, and let me see your records!  And I never heard from him.”  President Obama’s lawyers quickly sealed all of his records immediately after his inauguration.   

Who were President Obama’s lawyers?  Dr. Orly Taitz posted on her website that President Obama “has paid more than $5 million in legal fees to national law firm Perkins Coie to keep his personal, and possibly professional, records hidden from the public.”  Who or what is Perkins Coie?

Americans have recently come to know that the law firm Perkins Coie had been retained by the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee “to conduct research into allegations about Donald Trump’s connections with Russian and possible coordination between his campaign and the Kremlin.”  Marc E. Elias, a lawyer representing the Clinton campaign and the DNC, retained Fusion GPS; Fusion GPS hired dossier author Christopher Steele, a former British intelligence officer with ties to the FBI and the American intelligence community. 

So, the law firm entrusted to seal all of President Obama’s records from Donald Trump’s millions was the same law firm at the center of the conspiracy to frame Donald Trump for Russian collusion and obstruction? 

For Barack Obama, President Donald Trump wasn’t just the pain in the ass who would not go away.  Donald Trump had more money than God and could not be intimidated, either by the media or the Democrats, with threats of losing his job or with never-ending lawsuits.  The Donald was impervious to ridicule and he was persistent.  Whatever obstacle or distraction they threw in his way, the media and the Democrats could not stop his pursuit of the truth that they so cleverly hid from the American public, that Barack Obama wasn’t the man he claimed to be, he was the son of a foreign national and that fact alone meant that he wasn’t a “natural born citizen.”  

Hillary Clinton may have been instrumental for paying to manufacture dirt on Candidate Trump but she is not the reason the DOJ and the FBI and the intelligence community marshalled forces to rid Trump from the race or office.  She had no power to tell them “to jump.”  No, the ultimate decision to use the full force of the U.S. government to “kill” Candidate and then President Trump; not by bullet or bomb but by paper—stunningly, egregiously embarrassing or felonious paper, rested with the man in the Oval Office.  Barack Obama tried everything within his power to punish Donald Trump for continually questioning his legitimacy as the 44th President. 

After his inauguration, President Obama engaged lawyers at the law firm Perkins Coie to seal all of his records, the same records Donald J. Trump offered $50M to see to delegitimize the sitting President.  This same law firm, led by Marc E. Elias, and retained Fusion GPS who hired the dossier author Christopher Steele to create a fictional history.  Perkins Coie is the same law firm that President Obama used, through government and political surrogates, to destroy the legitimacy of Donald Trump’s presidency in the eyes of his children and wife under the guise of Russian collusion and obstruction. 

The redacted Mueller report found no collusion or obstruction.  It also didn’t find that the Trump-Obama food fight has been going on for ten years.

It’s Time to Decertify DSM-5 and Reinstitute DSM-4

Rarely is there a discussion under what authority can a biological male compete with biological females.  World class tennis champion Martina Navratilova says “transgender women” are ‘cheating’ if they compete in women’s sports.  What is the authority whereby a biological male can legally use the shower or restroom facilities or dressing rooms set aside for biological females?  The problem is that there isn’t a law or an authority but rather the absence of terms used to describe mental disorders, specifically, sexual disorders.

For decades, Transgenderism and Gender Identity Disorder had been classified as mental disorders by the American Psychiatric Association (APA) in their Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM).  The DSM evolved from systems for collecting census and psychiatric hospital statistics, and from a United States Army manual on mental illnesses.  Revisions since its first publication in 1952 have incrementally added to the total number of mental disorders, and removed those no longer considered to be mental illnesses. 

In December 2012, the APA quietly announced changes to their DSM.  In version 5, Transvestitism, Transgenderism, and Gender Identity Disorders were eliminated and replaced with a new term, “gender dysphoria.”  Dysphoria is the distress a person experiences as a result of the sex and gender they were assigned at birth.  With a stroke of a pen, transvestitism, transgenderism, and gender identity disorder were no longer considered to be mental disorders. 

In essence, the APA announced the behaviors previously associated with transvestitism, transgenderism, and gender identity disorders were now considered “normal.”  Based on the DSM-5, if you are a male and identify as a female, this is now considered “normal.”  This new “normal” defies logic and common sense and one of the many unintended consequences of the APA’s cowardly actions is that the new DSM is used as the authority for sports competitions, something the APA never envisioned and the DSM was never designed for.

The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders was supposed to offer a common language and standard criteria for the classification of mental disorders.  It was not designed to be misused to give biological males athletic advantages over biological females.  The most important aspect of the DSM is that it “serves as a universal authority for psychiatric diagnoses.”  There are few parts of America or the United Nations the DSM doesn’t touch or influence.  “It is used, or relied upon, by clinicians, researchers, psychiatric drug regulation agencies, health insurance companies, pharmaceutical companies, the legal system, and policy makers.”  Athletic organizations are not listed. 

In previous versions of the DSM, where the behaviors associated with transvestitism, transgenderism, and gender identity disorders were considered a mental disorder, health insurance companies and hospitals would not authorize sexual reassignment surgery for a mental illness, that corrective surgery was not warranted.  Those seeking sexual reassignment had to pay for the surgery themselves either at a private clinic or overseas.  Prior to DSM-5, the appropriate treatment for gender identity disorders was therapy.  With the new DSM-5, no longer is gender identity disorder considered a mental disorder.  Those people with previous gender identity disorders argued that they no longer have a mental illness but they have a medically-correctable condition, just like surgery is needed to correct a physical birth defect such as cleft lip and palate.

There were many members of the APA who saw that the aggressive lobbying efforts of LGBTQ and other sexual activists would result in a substantial body of APA member psychiatrists kowtowing to the activists’ demands.  In one of the most artful displays of a mental illness, Dr. Dana Beyer wrote of their successful lobbying of the APA, in The End of Transgender as a Mental Illness: “Our greatest accomplishment on the Working Group was reconceptualizing the state of ‘being trans’ from a mental illness to a normal human variant.”  What the hell is a “normal human variant?”  This is chapter and verse from the movie Gaslight.  Normal human “variants” don’t pretend to be boys and race or wrestle girls.  Variants need therapy, not lessons on how to cheat in athletics.

There was more interest in changing the DSM to correct a perceived social injustice than understanding and treating a longstanding mental disorder.  One side caved to social injustice and agreed to eliminate sexual identity disorders from the DSM.  The other side didn’t have the votes to stop the madness. 

Dr. Paul R. McHugh, the former psychiatrist-in-chief for Johns Hopkins Hospital reiterated that transgenderism is a “mental disorder” that merits treatment, that sex change is “biologically impossible,” and “that people who promote sexual reassignment surgery are collaborating with and promoting a mental disorder.”  Dr. McHugh was one of the losing 49% of the over 9,000-strong APA whose vote failed to retain the DSM-4 standard regarding sexual identity disorders. 

“‘Sex change’ is biologically impossible,” said Dr. McHugh. “People who undergo sex-reassignment surgery do not change from men to women or vice versa. Rather, they become feminized men or masculinized women.  Claiming that this is civil-rights matter and encouraging surgical intervention is in reality to collaborate with and promote a mental disorder.”  Feminized men, whatever they have done to them surgically or medically, can dress up in sports bras and running shoes and play make believe female athletes but they are still males competing against females.  Martina said it: “They are cheating.”

The DSM as the U.S. universal authority for psychiatric diagnoses has been corrupted by external pressures.  “Various authorities criticized that many DSM-5 revisions or additions lack empirical support; inter-rater reliability is low for many disorders; several sections contain poorly written, confusing, or contradictory information; and the psychiatric drug industry unduly influenced the manual's content.  Many of the members of work groups for the DSM-5 had conflicting interests, including ties to pharmaceutical companies.  Various scientists have argued that the DSM-5 forces clinicians to make distinctions that are not supported by solid evidence, distinctions that have major treatment implications, including drug prescriptions and the availability of health insurance coverage.  General criticism of the DSM-5 ultimately resulted in a petition, signed by many mental health organizations, which called for outside review of DSM-5.”

There’s only so much accomplished APA members, like Dr. Paul R. McHugh, can do against a social justice steamroller.  The APA and their DSM have been fully compromised and is now subject to social engineering, undue influence, and new definitions that are not supported by the evidence. 

If you thought you had problems with men in your daughter’s locker room or men winning women’s track events, wait until the LGBTQ activists are able to remove their next offending personality disorder, pedophilia, from the DSM.  Without their parent’s knowing, transgenders and transvestites in drag are reading to children across the country, in schools and libraries.  In Nicole Russel’s article, Forget Mr. Rogers: Drag Queen Reading Hour coming to a library near you, “It’s one thing for drag queens or transsexuals to lobby for equality via marches and even legislation.  It’s quite another to show up at a taxpayer-funded facility and showcase a very abnormal lifestyle as healthy, common, and educational.”  Kids coming from these events suddenly tell their folks they identify as another sex.  Where do you think they get that from?

The Trump administration needs to take the APA to court and decertify the compromised DSM-5 as the universal authority for psychiatric diagnoses in the United States and reject the APA’s guidance and the DSM-5 as the source reference for mental illnesses.  Secretary of Health and Human services, Alex Azar, should suspend the DSM-5, institute an immediate return to the DSM-4 standard, and form a working group to determine the need for a system of cataloging and diagnosing mental disorders that are not subject to the whims of political activists.

The federal government federalized airport security when they learned it had been fully compromised by a hostile and aggressive force whose sole goal was to destroy American culture.  The APA has been fully compromised by a rabid group of sexual activists and the DSM needs to be federalized and managed as a “national standard.”  A national diagnostic and statistical manual should not be subject to social justice and party politics influence.

Is Barack Obama the Titular Leader of the Muslim Brotherhood?

Senator Ted Cruz is the latest political figure to call on the State Department to designate the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organization.  Cruz introduced Senate bill S. 68 and said, “It’s time to call the enemy by its name.”  Earlier this year, the Trump Administration designated some affiliates of the Muslim Brotherhood as terrorist organizations:
@StateDept has designated Ismail Haniyeh, Harakat al-Sabireen, Liwa al Thawra, and Harakat Sawa’d Misr (HASM) as Specially Designated Global Terrorists under Section 1(b) of Executive Order (E.O.) 13224.

17 years after the attacks of September 11, 2001, most Americans are aware of the most notorious and violent of the Islamist groups, such as ISIS and al-Qaeda.  However, outside counterterrorism circles and the Washington Beltway, it is unlikely if Americans are aware of the worldwide Muslim Brotherhood movement.  And they are less likely to know how their former President advanced the Muslim Brotherhood movement and its supremacist agenda, here and abroad.
A specific document submitted into evidence during America's largest terrorist prosecution in U.S. federal court, U.S. v. Holy Land Foundation, et al, had a remarkable history.  When it was translated and published, the Muslim Brotherhood's Strategic Plan in America was entitled: An Explanatory Memorandum: On the General Strategic Goal for the Group in North America.  

That story began when the FBI’s Washington Field Office executed a search warrant of a home in Annandale, Virginia.  Within a hidden sub-basement were the archives of the Muslim Brotherhood in North America.  “Among the 80 banker-boxes worth of documents discovered there were papers that confirmed what investigators and counterterrorism experts had long suspected and contended about the myriad Muslim-American groups in the United States: nearly all of them are controlled by the Muslim Brotherhood.”  
The innocuous-sounding Explanatory Memorandum explained how the Muslim Brotherhood sought to extend sharia into the United States and Canada.  The document outlined “the mission of the Muslim Brother in North America” through an undated paper entitled “Phases of the World Underground Movement Plan.”  
Phase One: Phase of discreet and secret establishment of leadership.

The Congressional Black Caucus buried 2005 Obama-Farrakhan photo.  In 2018, photojournalist Askia Muhammad released a photo showing former President Barack Obama and the Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan from Obama’s years as a state senator.  Referring to the possibility at the time that the young senator was being considered for a presidential run, Muhammad noted, “The Minister Farrakhan and his reputation would hurt someone trying to win acceptance in the broad cross-section.”  Noteworthy, Muhammad also said that “Obama had people from the Nation of Islam working on his staff and in his office in the Chicago, his Senate staff.  The members of the Nation of Islam helped him in his Senate campaign and on the South Side of Chicago.”  Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz said that he would not have campaigned for the former Senator if he had known about the picture of Obama and Farrakhan.  One of the greatest powers the media have is their power to ignore.  Media suppression works.
A WikiLeaks-released email from John Podesta (a member of the Obama campaign’s transition team), was a bombshell.  Advisers to Obama’s presidential campaign were directed to choose Arab Muslims over Arab Christians for the top jobs. (Emphasis mine.)  This just doesn’t sound like the work of a Christian.  
Phase Two: Phase of gradual appearance on the public scene and exercising and utilizing various public activities.  Establishing a shadow government (secret) within the Government.

When President Bush was in the White House, he created the White House Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives.  The democrats and media lambasted the project and ridiculed him unmercifully.  When President Obama came into office, he quietly directed his cabinet to implement Muslim initiatives and outreach programs.  Congress became aware of the strategic plan when President Obama directed NASA administrator Charles Bolden that his highest priority should be “to find a way to reach out to the Muslim world and engage much more with dominantly Muslim nations to help them feel good about their historic contribution to science...and math and engineering.”  NASA went on a Muslim hiring spree, as did other government agencies.  Government contracting offices insisted on companies to institute diversity hiring programs if the company wished to do business with the government. 
Sensitive and top-level government positions were filled by Muslims with questionable loyalties to the United States.  One of the FBI's former top experts on Islam announced that President Obama's pick to head the Central Intelligence Agency, John Brennan, converted to Islam years ago.  Hillary Clinton's top campaign aide, Huma Abedin, edited a radical Muslim publication that blamed the U.S. for 9/11.  Syed Abedin, the father of Huma, outlined his M.B. view of sharia law and how the Western world has turned Muslims “hostile.”
Phase Three: Escalation phase, prior to conflict and confrontation with the rulers, through utilizing mass media.

With the election of President Obama in November 2008 and his Muslim Outreach initiatives, exemplified by his Cairo “A New Beginnings” speech at Al Azhar University, the Obama administration extended a formal welcome to the Muslim Brotherhood.  Investor's Business Daily noted a lengthy chronology of events in support of the Muslim Brotherhood, punctuated by the overthrow of the Mubarak regime in Egypt during the Arab Spring of 2011 that swept the Muslim Brotherhood into power.  Obama delivered his Cairo speech, infuriating Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak by inviting Muslim Brotherhood leaders to attend. 
In 2009, the White House invited the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) president to President Obama's inauguration ceremonies, even though the Justice Department just two years earlier had blacklisted the Brotherhood affiliate as an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land trial.  There were hundreds of similar events and the leaders of the FBI and the intelligence community were silent.  They had been dispatched to execute Muslim outreach programs and they did.
Phase Four: Open public confrontation with government through exercising the political pressure approach.

President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton facilitated the overthrow of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak.  They encouraged him to resign allowing the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood to fill the power vacuum.  The 2012 presidential election saw the Muslim Brotherhood’s candidate, Mohamed Morsi, become Egypt’s first president to gain power through an election.  Just as he was supporting US counterterrorism efforts, Muamar Gaddafi was next to lose his position to a reinvigorated Muslim Brotherhood and he lost his life.
Phase Five: Seizing power to establish their Islamic Nation.

The enemy camp is the United States of America, and we are the targets of a stealthy jihad.  The Muslim Brotherhood's Strategic Plan is being implemented.  Barack Obama has planted the seeds of sharia wherever he goes.  Within eight years he enabled the Muslim Brotherhood to infiltrate the highest levels of the U.S. government by the thousands.  Infiltration would have been total with the election of Hillary Clinton and her Muslim Brotherhood proxy, Huma Abedin.
How did we get a Muslim in the White House?  Thank the media and their complete lack of researching and reporting on Barack Obama.  Who but a Muslim would ensure his congressional offices were staffed by Nation of Islam members?  Like the photo of Obama and Farrakhan that is something the media knew all too well but kept it under their kufi.
His favorite sound was the Call to Prayer.  No one ever questioned his Muslim faith.  There is no Christian on the planet who would ever make the “honest mistake” of saying “…so and so has never questioned my Zoroastrian faith.”  In the context of the Explanatory Memorandum, to the men and women of the Muslim Brotherhood he was “The One they have been waiting for.”  
And it all came to a stop with the election of President Donald J. Trump.
Is the former President the titular head of the Muslim Brotherhood?  How remarkable is it when you take the strategic plan of the MB and like a puzzle piece, look all over the planet for the right one that fits and it is right there in front of you.  Slightly covered up by other distracting pieces.  But it is there.  If not him then who?

How Fake News made a President, how they are trying to unmake President Trump

President Donald Trump continues to be hammered over his statement that the “fake news” is the “enemy of America.” 

Every time the President delivers his comments at a Trump Rally and pokes at the media as “the fake news,” the media become incensed and counterattacks, usually by rolling out their favorite go-to media whores, Senator Schumer or Rep Pelosi, for a sanctimonious rebuttal: “…suppression of a free press is how ‘dictators get started.’  We need a free press.”

More recently, the President’s “fake news” comments are considered by the media, collectively, as “dangerous,” as if SEAL Team snipers have been ordered to the rooftops of skyscrapers to pop those network stars who dared to criticize the President.

While the media has been generating and feeding Americans “fake news” for decades, they truly turned “fake news” into an art form with the 2007 elections.  Specifically, the media distorted and lied about the presidential candidates’ eligibility for President, under Article II of the U.S. Constitution.  Both Republican and Democrat candidates, Senators McCain and Obama.  Americans may be shocked to know that both candidates had “issues” with their eligibility but these issues were never fully explored or investigated, or accurately reported. 

Instead of researching and reporting the facts and circumstances regarding each candidate’s eligibility under Article II, any discussion devolved into deflections.  Newsrooms coordinated their efforts and avoided the facts.  The media created their own set of rules and definitions.  These fake news discussions were played out on network television, by vociferous partisan panel members.  Never was an immigration attorney consulted, never was a constitutional scholar consulted. 

The media had the same access to information as the general public.  Any competent and inquisitive journalist desiring to become a little smarter on the arcane and Article II topic of “natural born citizen” should have found a remarkable document, thanks to Al Gore’s amazing internet.

In her 1988 article, in the Yale Law Journal, The Natural-Born Citizen Clause and Presidential Eligibility: An Approach for Resolving Two Hundred Years of Uncertainty, law student Jill Pryor wrote, “It is well settled that ‘native-born’ citizens, those born in the United States, qualify as natural born.  It is also clear that persons born abroad of alien parents, who later become citizens by naturalization, do not.  But whether a person born abroad of American parents, or of one American and one alien parent, qualifies as natural born has never been resolved.”

In other words, for the 2007 election, Ms. Pryor’s article would suggest that the U.S. Constitution was sufficiently vague in two disparate areas: whether either John McCain, a person born abroad of American parents, or Barack Obama, a person born of one American and one alien parent, actually qualified as a “natural born citizen.” 

The media—and the DNC—understood the implications of Ms. Pryor’s article.  If or when tested by a federal court, there would likely be only one favorable outcome.  As plaintiff, John McCain, would most likely succeed in his lawsuit.  He should be considered “a natural born citizen,” as his parents would have likely given birth to John in America “but for” his parents’ assignment to Panama precluded him from being born in the United States.  Candidate John McCain was a “natural born citizen” although he was born in a foreign land.

On the other hand, Ms Pryor’s article suggests that if or when tested by a federal court, that a candidate like Barack Obama, a person born of one American and one alien parent, would not qualify as a natural born citizen.  The Supreme Court, in its due diligence, would research and acknowledge that the Founding Fathers created this “national rule” to prevent anyone from interpreting “natural born citizen” under common laws rules because it eliminated the possibility of a child being born with more than one claim of allegiance.  Simply, Barack Obama, with a Kenyan father and an American mother, was born to a parent who owed his allegiance to a foreign sovereignty, that the child was born under two constitutions of two nations, a “dual national,” and consequently subject to split allegiance.  The court would not rule in Mr. Obama’s favor.

Senator Barack Obama’s “untested” probable ineligibility to be President was a major problem for the Democrats and the media.  If he was to continue running for President, the only way to help Senator Obama cross the finish line was to ensure Senator McCain, the only person who had “standing” to bring a lawsuit, never filed a lawsuit challenging his opponent’s eligibility.  Congress proclaimed John McCain as a “natural born citizen” under Article II of the U.S. Constitution.  Congress was silent on Barack Obama’s eligibility other than to say the U.S. Constitution is vague.

The “fake news” marshalled their forces and asserted on television and in the print media a simple narrative, that Senator Obama was eligible to run for President, that he was “a natural born citizen” under Article II by virtue of being “naturally born in Hawaii.”  Whoopi Goldberg on The View said so, as did numerous others, thus it must have been true. 

It wasn’t until after the election that private citizen, Donald Trump, did what many skeptical Americans did at the time, he listened to the media that he was a part of and took the “fake news’” birth certificate “birther” bait. 

At some time during the Obama Administration, Donald Trump learned that the election of Barack Obama occurred because the Republicans and the Republican candidate had been either poorly informed or too cowardly to take Senator Obama to court.  During the presidential primaries, Candidate Trump threatened to sue Republican candidates, Senators Rubio and Cruz, over their questionable Article II eligibility. 

This unincorporated media amalgam we ascribe as “fake news” believes they made the election of Barack Obama possible.  By keeping him out of the judicial system and exposing his untested credentials, the “fake news” was able to carry and maintain an offsetting message, that questioning the eligibility of Barack Obama made one a vile racist.  This tactic worked well.

Now they believe they can unmake the election of President Trump.  The strategies the “fake news” perfected during the Obama campaign are being used by the media and the FBI to disqualify and remove President Trump by impeachment.  The bogus FBI-generated dossier is more “fake news.”

I am reminded of the oath I took as an officer in the Marine Corps.  The important part: I do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic. 

Who defines, “…enemies, foreign and domestic?”  “Fake news” redefined the term “natural born citizen” to suit their means and political goals.  It wasn’t the U.S. Supreme Court that debated and defined the constitutional term. 

It seems to me that when the free press “takes sides” and operates out of their charter as “the free press” and becomes “the fake news” by manufacturing lies and bogus documents, and actively conspiring with an opposition party to facilitate the overthrow of a duly elected President, the totality of their actions should to be reconsidered.  The Fourth Estate is not only engaged in partisan Fifth Column activities as an extension of the deep state’s intelligence community.  But the media has sent their version of SEAL Team Six into battle, to work clandestinely to politically assassinate their enemies.  Death by a thousand cuts.  The “fake news” is the Sixth Column—what we are witnessing is they are the resistance.  They function as the French Resistance functioned, cells were small groups of men and women who, in addition to their guerrilla warfare activities, were also publishers of underground newspapers.

The “fake news” views their work as fighting their enemy.  The media declared war on President Trump.  The “fake news” is the enemy of America.
