Happy Hour News Briefs
It’s come to this: Joseph Farah writing at World Nut Daily (which he founded as, and has long been ground zero of the Birfer movement) tells us:
Trump was hardly the first “birther.” Neither was I. Nor was my colleague Jerome Corsi. And neither was Hillary Clinton.
That honor belongs to one person and one person alone – Barack Obama.
I’m all ears, Joe. Tell us about it.
Obama went to extreme lengths to conceal his past. And, indeed, if he was born in the U.S. and was eligible to serve as president, he certainly did his best to create the mystery that led to the question being asked.
Yeah, what about that?!
Maybe he thought it was a sexy way to sell books, get a foreign student scholarship, attract women – who knows?
Yeah, you know those Kenyans, always about getting a woman, amirite?
Then Obama refused to release his birth certificate during his entire first term in office, despite the controversy he had ignited years earlier.
See it’s the Kenyan’s fault! QED, bitchez! But you know, like all gentlemen, Farah isn’t one to gossip. No, he’s a good man, he wouldn’t…
I won’t go into the voluminous amount of evidence of a cover-up, or all the valid reasons for questioning not only where Obama was born, but whether he had even retained citizenship when he and his mother left the country to move to Indonesia and enroll him in a Muslim school there over the objections of U.S. immigration officials concerned, at the time, about the status of his citizenship status.
I bet you won’t.
I won’t go into his missing college records, which might shed light on whether Obama had claimed to be a foreign student, as many at Columbia assumed.
I won’t go into the fact that his supposed “birth hospital” in Hawaii steadfastly refused to acknowledge publicly that simple fact.
During all that time, I never drew any conclusions about his birthplace – just that there were questions that needed to be answered.
Farah’s only asking.
Excuse me for not answering at least a dozen requests for interviews from the global media last week when Trump admitted Obama was born in the U.S. – something he actually has no evidence to conclude with any certainty.
Wow, Joe! You turned down the eyes and ear of the world?! Whadda guy! I’m sure Orly needed the exposure.
And then Farah reaches his exciting conclusion:
Instead, I prefer to thank Trump for standing up courageously in 2010 to force the issue. He had nothing to gain at the time. But, it probably led directly to his eventual nomination by the Republican Party for the presidency in 2016.
And that’s the real story of who the first “birther” really was. It was Barack Hussein Obama.
Oh, and then there’s this little, tiny announcement at the end of his column, after stating he turned down all the media in the world because, you know, he’s not one to gossip:
