“Why has Obama, since taking the White House, used Justice Department Attorneys, at taxpayer expense, to avoid presenting a legitimate birth certificate and college records?”…Citizen Wells

“The Solomon Bill, requiring students at Columbia and other colleges to register for the draft and references to Obama being born in Kenya until 2008, explain why Obama did not register for the draft and why Obama’s Selective Service Application was forged.”…Citizen Wells
Thanks to commenter SueQ for the partial transcript of the Donald Trump interview on CNBC today.
” I want to go back to the birther stuff. You were fanning the flames last week. Are you back in the same place where you were before? I never really changed. Nothing’s changed my mind. You have a huge group of people. I walk down the street and people are screaming please don’t (something deleted from transcript). A publisher came out last week and had a statement about a young man doing a book, born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia. The publisher came out and said we made a mistake. What do we do? Oh, we made a mistake. That’s not the way life works. He’s a young man doing a book and he said what he believed to be the truth. So there’s a whole lot of things. His mother was never in the hospital, they don’t know which hospital it was, his grandmother said he was born in Kenya. It all wouldn’t matter except if you’re born in a foreign country, you’re not allowed to be president so this is a minor detail. So the publisher comes out last week and made this statement and said we made a mistake. Is it an important thing? In a way it is because it says you’re not allowed to be president if you’re not born in the country. I’m not fanning flames. This is something that came out last week, a lot of people are questioning his birth certificate, questioning the authenticity of his birth certificate. I’ve been known as being a very smart giep (not sure what a giep is… will have to listen again) for a long time. I don’t consider myself birther or not birther but there are some major questions here and the press just refuses to cover it. Now, if that were somebody else, they’d be covering it and throwing people out of office but they don’t want to cover it. So it’s interesting. There is a weird — in that same report that was on some of the conservative web sites and i haven’t even confirmed it, Donald, but there was a quote from one of his debates when he was running for state senator, I believe and one of his opponents said, well, this was at the time when the Kenya thing was still on some of his biographies or something and the guy said you weren’t even born here, he said it doesn’t matter if I’m born here, I wasn’t running for president at the time — there was a quote, from him. But the question is whether there was a time in his life where he thought it was more attractive to be a more national type guy and maybe didn’t change the impression that he wasn’t. I don’t know. Joe, just to finish off, a lot of people want to see his college transcripts. They’re not looking at his marks, his grade, was he a good student. they want to see what they say about place of birth. Those transcripts have disappeared. nobody seems to be able to get them. I was able to get him to produce a birth certificate, if it was a correct birth certificate. A lot of people have very serious doubts. they want to see his college transcripts because they want to see what is he saying about place of birth. What did he say? Well, he is really stone walling it, to use an old Nixon term, he is really stone walling it when it comes to — he just doesn’t want to give those transcripts. What does he say at Columbia and Harvard and his other college where he supposedly did not get good marks and got into Columbia. What does he say about place of birth? One other thing, the hospital. the mother was never in the hospital. These are minor details but they can’t find any records that the mother was in the hospital. So it’s a tough situation.”
