Donald Trump was rightfully indignant when he learned of the lack of any clear evidence that President Obama was constitutionally-qualified to hold the office to which he was elected. Then the Obama administration released what was purported to be a "true copy" of Obama's birth certificate. Trump backed off, saying that he was satisfied by that document. Now it is learned that the document offered as a "true copy" of Obama's real birth certificate is a complete forgery! Why isn't Trump outraged over being snookered by Obama?
When the forgery was released in April 2011, Obama stated, "Normally I would not comment on something like this, [but the country has] some enormous challenges out there [that it will not be able to effectively meet] if we're distracted." What can be more serious than a corrupt President who participates in a massive deception of the American public?
The document released in April 2011 was discovered to have been created by Adobe's Photoshop image editing software. The evidence is incontrovertible. It is a forgery!
Further investigation is being conducted to find the person responsible for the forgery.
But that doesn't clear Obama from his participation in the public fraud by claiming the document authentic. Neither does it clear Hawaii's officials responsible for stonewalling the public scrutiny of Obama's authentic birth certificate (assuming one exists).
What does the real Obama birth certificate state, and why has Obama resorted to participation in a criminal conspiracy to hide it from public scrutiny?
These are serious questions that, had they been raised over George Bush's qualifications, would have made top of the front page news for months in major newspapers across the country. It would have been incessant news on MSNBC, CNBC, NBC, CBS, CNN, ABC, FOX ... pick one or all. But raise the questions about Obama, and even with the now known fact that the offered birth certificate is a complete forgery, there is barely a "peep" from "the usual suspects" in American news media's propaganda campaign.
But what may be even more mystifying and is truly bizarre is the lack of any response from Donald Trump! Has Trump been threatened? Does "the Donald" no longer believe it worthwhile to try to root out abject corruption in our highest elective office?
Having been made a fool by Obama's trickery, Trump should be back in the limelight demanding an explanation from the "liar-in-chief"!
But only silence.
Why isn't Trump outraged over being snookered by Obama?
Bob Webster, a descendant of Daniel Webster's father, Revolutionary War patriot Ebenezer Webster, has always had a strong interest in early American history, our Constitution, U.S. politics, and law. Politically he is a constitutional republican with objectivist and libertarian roots. He has faith in the ultimate triumph of truth and reason over deception and emotion. He is a strong believer in our Constitution as written and views the abandonment of constitutional restraint by the regressive Progressive movement as a great danger to our Republic. His favorite novel is Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand and believes it should be required reading for all high school students so they can appreciate the cost of tolerating the growth of unconstitutional crushingly powerful central government. He strongly believes, as our Constitution enshrines, that the interests of the individual should be held superior to the interests of the state.
A lifelong interest in meteorology and climatology spurred his strong interest in science. Bob earned his degree in Mathematics at Virginia Tech, graduating in 1964.
