Quotes of the day are intended to represent what is being said by people on both sides of the birther question. They do not necessarily represent the views of this web site.

The fact that Obama applied as a Kenyan casts doubt on his credibility. It was a cynical ploy to obtain scholarship and advantaged admission status where otherwise he would not have likely qualified academically.

The problem with the entire Cruz eligibility controversy is that there is no clear precedent. There is no clear historical record. There is no assurance that even if the Supreme Court should issue a unanimous decision on the topic, that if we could resurrect James Madison he would not say: “that’s not what we meant.”

Like the 14 years residency requirement, the “natural born Citizen” requirement is a test of American soil. This natural-born soil test is required only for the nation’s highest federal office – the presidency.

In the Daily Telegraph, Tom Harris says Hacked Off’s “tinfoil hatters need to beam down back to Earth”, comparing the conspiracy theorists to those who believe US President Barack Obama’s birth certificate is fraudulent.

Trump has been given ALL of the information about NBC years ago. That is documented fact. Ask Jeff Lichter. The problem is that he has done a piss poor job articulating the facts and often rolls over to criticism from the left. IMO Trump should sponsor a national press conference with the likes of Mario Apuzzo, Cdr. Charles Kerchner, Lawrence Sellin, Mike Zullo, Joe Arpaio, Orly Taitz, Ed Noonan, Capt. Pamela Barnett, George Miller, Phil Berg, Miki Booth, Paul Irey, Doug Vogt, Laura Wilkinson, Ed Sunderland, Carl Swenson, Linda Daniels and the like.

I’ve said it many times before, and I will continue to preach this if he gets the nomination, but Donald Trump’s status as a conspiracy theorist makes him completely unfit to be President.

Yes, it’s a wonderful thing to witness. The only candidate to questions the Constitutionally ineligible squatter and Cruz is crushing it. It was a good day. The American miracle is not dead.

Do you know who started the birther movement? Do you know who questioned his birth certificate? One of the first, Hillary Clinton. She’s the one that started it, she brought it up years before it was brought up by me.

— Donald Trump

The statement by Trump is false.

Its absolutely impossible that Stanley Ann Dunham was the bio mother of Barack Hussein Obama. But it is very possible that she was the adoptive mother of BHO.

Only a birther could turn a simple DNS migration issue into evidence of a widespread conspiracy against democracy.

I cannot put the ignorance of all the people in the whole world on my shoulders.


Donald Trump has always been comfortable playing the race card. As you know … that’s what the birther issue was all about.

Mr. Donald Trumpf’s father isn’t a natural born American citizen prima facie proving Mr. usurper Donald Trump is 100% NOT eligible to be president of the United States of America and never will be. In 1885, at age 16, Trump emigrated from Bremen, Germany, to the United States aboard the steamship Eider, departing on October 7[4]:32 and arriving at the Castle Garden Emigrant Landing Depot in New York City on October 19. U.S. immigration records list his name as “Friedrich Trumpf”, last place of residence as “Kallstadt”, country of birth as “Germany”, and his occupation as “farmer”

Dismissing all conspiracy theories (and theorists) as crazy is just as intellectually lazy as credulously accepting every wild allegation.

…[Obama] is all talk, no action. He can’t even organise a death panel, let alone a US takeover.

— Stuart J. Walton
— Comment at Quora.com

Obama clearly was not born in the United States and he still wouldn’t be eligible to be president even if he was. His Hawaii birth certificate has a Connecticut social security number. Obama doesn’t have an authentic birth certificate. Plus, his African family already guarantee he was born in Kenya.

Every act he signed should be rescinded.

Birther information bias is like a person going to a 5-star restaurant but instead of eating there, going around the back and eating garbage out of the dumpster. That sums up the birthers pretty well.

President Barack Obama was born in the United States. Period.

Yup, the whole birther movement was racist.

As democracy is perfected, the office of president represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart’s desire at last and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.
