Politico lies Trump tells truth, Zero proof of US birth for Obama, I don’t know where Obama was born, Whitehouse.org image not certified birth certificate, Obama used private and Justice Dept. attorneys at taxpayer expense to hide records, Politico receives 4 Orwells
“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
“Moore said he’s seen no convincing evidence that Obama is a “natural born citizen” and a lot of evidence that suggests he is not.”…Judge Roy Moore interview by WND
“When asked where I believe Obama was born I answer, I don’t know. There is zero proof he was born in Hawaii. The only evidence of his birth location that we have is much circumstantial evidence and that points to Kenya.”…Citizen Wells

“anything that gives or is meant to give a false impression.”
The Politico article below, written by Jeff Greenfield, qualifies as a lie.
Donald Trump, as I. does not know where Obama was born. That is an honest, informed answer.
Jeff Greenfield, has either not done the research and/or doesn’t care about the truth.
From Politico July 22, 2015.
“Donald Trump’s Birther Strategy
His loony birth certificate quest fits into a xenophobic tradition in American politics.”
“However far apart the two men are, their two journeys are linked in significant ways. In the minds of millions of Americans (if polls are right), Barack Obama is actually returning to the country in which he was born—a “fact” he, his parents and the entire Hawaiian public health system have fiendishly hidden from the world for half a century. Those suspicions were fanned greatly by the comments of Donald Trump stretching back more than three years, comments that had no basis in fact, and for which Trump has offered neither explanation nor apology. Back in 2011, Trump trumpeted that he had sent investigators to Hawaii and that “they cannot believe what they’re finding.” We never did learn what it is they had found. A few weeks ago, asked about whether he thought Obama was born in the United States, Trump told CNN, “I don’t know. I really don’t know.”
For his part, Obama has usually resorted to humor to reply. The two men even faced each other at the 2011 White House Correspondents Association dinner, where Obama skewered Trump from the podium for his “birther” stance, saying, “I know he’s taken some flak lately, but no one is prouder to put this birth certificate matter to rest than The Donald,” Obama told the crowd. “And that’s because he can finally get back to focusing on the issues that matter, like: Did we fake the moon landing? What really happened in Roswell? And where are Biggie and Tupac?” Two years ago, he told the same dinner about plans for his library: “Some have suggested that we put it in my birthplace but I’d rather keep it in the United States.””
“The meritless suspicions about Obama’s birthplace and beliefs are in part a reflection of who he is: a uniquely “untypical” president”
I was glad to see that Greenfield at least got this right:
“The framers of the Constitution were determined, in Alexander Hamilton’s words, to avoid “cabal, intrigue and corruption”—threats likely to come “chiefly from the desire in foreign powers to gain an improper ascendant in our councils.” That’s why they limited the presidency to “natural born citizens.””
From Citizen Wells July 9, 2015.
“To: Donald Trump
From: Citizen Wells
There have been numerous attempts to obfuscate and complicate Obama’s birth proof and eligibility.
The answer is simple.
There is no proof of Obama birth in the US and Hawaii.
Forget the semantics of birth certificate.
Hawaii is very atypical and consistently ranked as one of the most corrupt states.
One can have what is considered a “legal” birth certificate from Hawaii and not be born there.
If one looks at the alleged birth certificate for Obama that was posted on WhiteHouse.gov you will find.
Abstract: “The term abstract is subject to different meanings, but in a legal sense, it refers to an abbreviated history of an official record.””
This automatically disqualifies the WhiteHouse.com image as being a copy of an original birth certificate.
Governor Neil Abercrombie, an Obama friend, could not find a birth certificate for Obama. He may have found a recording of birth.
From Citizen Wells July 19, 2012.
“Former Hawaii elections clerk Tim Adams has now signed an affidavit swearing he was told by his supervisors in Hawaii that no long-form, hospital-generated birth certificate existed for Barack Obama Jr. in Hawaii and that neither Queens Medical Center nor Kapi’olani Medical Center in Honolulu had any record of Obama having been born in their medical facilities.”
From Citizen Wells May 24, 2012.
“Here is a list of some of the US Justice Department attorneys who have assisted Obama in keeping his records hidden. Their representation of Obama is a matter of public record. This list does not include the support staffs.
Elizabeth A. Pascal
Neal Kumar Katyal Acting Solicitor General
R. CraiG Lawrence
Mark B. Stern
Andre Birotte Jr.
Leon W. Weidman
David A. Dejute
Roger E. West
George S. Cardona
Paul J. Fishman
Robert Bauer, who as an attorney with Perkins Coie helped Obama keep his records hidden before Obama took the White House, and afterwards was hired as general counsel, is not included in the list as well as numerous private practice attorneys
Obama continues to engage numerous Justice Department and private attorneys to keep his records hidden. It may be because Obama pretended to be from Kenya to get foreign student aid and benefits. There are quite a few references to Obama being from Kenya including the recently released bio from his 1991 book publisher.”
