ABC News ties Birtherism to Trump’s statements about Clinton Emails

The article, “How Trump’s Remarks About Clinton Email Probe Mirror Birtherism,” has a simple enough basis. Regarding Obama’s birth certificate, Trump (in one of the articles selected quotes) said:

He may have [a birth certificate], but there’s something on that, maybe religion. Maybe it says he is a Muslim," he said. "I don’t know. Maybe he doesn’t want that.

Trump asserted without qualification that there is something on Obama’s birth certificate that he doesn’t want disclosed.

For Clinton’s emails, Trump similarly says:

During a campaign rally in Grand Rapids, Michigan, Monday, Donald Trump said he was "sure" that what’s contained in the emails at the center of the FBI‘s renewed probe into Hillary Clinton‘s use of a private server is "absolutely devastating."

I get upset about con men defrauding the elderly, about rape and murder. I have a hard time getting excited about a private email server, and certainly do not understand how that is a threat to democracy.

    It’s a very deep rabbit hole. Suffice it to say, I don’t buy the story about Princess Di’s death. That’s just one of a huge number of possible connections to the cocaine trade. Imagine the headlines:

    “Princess Di Murdered By American Ops In A Cocaine Deal Gone Bad.”

    Next: “Breaking News About OJ Simpson”

    One of my favorite statements to come out of this comes from a Chris Matthews interview of Kelly Anne Conway. Matthews was pressing Conway on Donald Trump’s statements that this was worse than Watergate. And he stated to her whether or not Donald Trump had any evidence that it was worse than Watergate. She stated:

    “Well, we don’t know. It could be worse than Watergate.”

    My reaction to this (other than almost throwing something at the TV) was “Well, if you don’t know, then why are you stating this.”

    *sarcastically* Yeah, I chose this. The Russians have been slowly infiltrating this country and the drug-dealing politicians have kept mum. Now, I’m sure that several might try to con you into believing that they try to stop it behind the scenes which is bull.

    They know that if they get caught killing just one of their cocaine lords, they cocaine supply would have been cut off.

    So, they just assume that somebody else out there is trying with boots on the ground. Also, not true and the complete flip of Miami from English to Spanish is proof enough for that.

    Until Trump came along that is and his message is clear: “We have a right to stand our ground” vs. Hillary: “Let’s not fight. Here, take their uranium supplies as proof of our weak, submissive character.”

    On a side note: Assange’s info IS Russian and “Seth Rich” was murdered in the early 1980’s.

    dunstvangeet: “Well, if you don’t know, then why are you stating this.”

    Because it achieves the desired effect of implanting an impression in voters’ minds.

    Trump did it again today, repeating an already-discredited report that an FBI investigation of the Clinton Foundation is “likely to lead to an indictment”.

    When challenged about it, Conway’s response was to cheer the fact that “the damage is done to Hillary Clinton”.

    She came into the job with a reputation as an honest consultant, but she’s shown herself to be as sleazy as her client.

    According to whom? Do you really trust the “official” records out of Washington. Again, I worked as a sheriff’s dispatcher in Clewiston and records were flubbed or destroyed constantly in favor of Pablo Escobar’s Drug Cartel. Like me, you monitor this blog constantly and I know you’re not that naive.

    When people were murdered off, the sheriff that MikeZulloMoore, Volin, Rondeau, and I worked for would tell people that, “They just moved away.”

    And, I’m telling you that the info coming from Assange is old “KGB” info from South Florida and “Seth Rich” has been dead since the early 80’s. Just like Lt. Vance, recently in the news, has also been dead for decades.

    This info was acquired by Pablo and others for the express purpose of presenting it one day thirty years into the future, give or take a few years. Pablo, Chavez (Mr. sexy to the max!), and the Castros calculated the numbers based on, if it keeps going like it is right now “one day we will own jur country.”

    She also claims that Hells Angel Sonny Barger captured Pablo Escobar in Florida in 1990, but Sonny was in Federal prison in Arizona from 1988 to 1992.

    Not on October 2, 1990.

    Sermon Dyess, Jr was supposed to be in prison for 17 years. Within four years he was walking the streets again ordering murders of those who had testified against him in the Sal Magluta Medellin Cartel Drug Trials out of Miami. Until….yes, you guessed it, I put a bullet in his brain in front of Brenda’s Bar in Clewiston, Florida. So, feed your BS to the sheeple. Not me.

    According to his driver’s license, his voter registration records, and his parents. Of course, they could be an entire family of body doubles, right?

    So, guys, the ultimate evidence which proves all that is true, is that there is absolutely no evidence for it whatsoever.

    Nancy, I sincerely hope you get help for your condition.

    Don’t worry about Nancy. She has a good job with Comcast working as a customer care rep.

    I wonder how she is doing with getting her photo of “Mondale” printed.

    And how does she know that the murdered man wasn’t the body double?

    They might like her story about assassinating some of her high school classmates. Her surviving classmates must feel the need to check to see if she has signed up to attend a reunion. It would be dangerous to be in the same room with her.
