This article conveys the brilliance of our Founding Fathers when they established the Electoral College –
MORE ACCURATE PERSPECTIVE
Here are the facts:
Trump won the popular vote in 31 states to her
19 and DC. 62% to her 38%.
Trump led in the total popular vote for all states except California.
Hillary won California 8,753,788 to Trump’s 4,483,810. 61.6% to
33.1% exclusive of the other candidates. Thus California gave Hillary the
popular vote for all states as claimed
by the Democrats and their media stooges.
But deduct her California vote from her national vote leaving her with 54,978,783,
and deduct Trump’s California vote from his national total, leaving him with 57,113.976, he wins in a landslide in the other 49 states, 51.3% to her 48.7%.
So, in effect, Hillary was elected president of California and Trump was elected
president of the rest of the country by a substantial margin.
This exemplifies the wisdom of the Electoral College, to prevent the vote
of any one populace state from overriding the vote of the others. Trump’s Campaign Manager, Kellyanne Conway, whose expertise is polling, saw this early on and devised
her strategy of “6 pathways to the White House”.
This meant ignoring California with its huge Democrat majority and going after the states that would give him the necessary electoral votes to win, FL, NC, MI, PA, OH, and WI.
At its lowest point since the civil war! Could this mean the end of the Democrat Party? When the afternoon of January 20, 2017 arrives, the Republican Party will have:
1) The Presidency.
2) A majority of the House of Representatives.
3) A majority of the Senate.
4) Almost two-thirds of all the governorships.
5) Total control of the statehouses in almost two-thirds of all the states. And in the near future, Republicans will be able to add:
6) A majority of the Supreme Court. The above has never happened before in American history.
Think about that and let it sink in for a moment. And it’s all because of one reason: Barack
Obama’s forcing his extreme far-left agenda on an unwilling country by executive orders, left wing judges, and obsequious bureaucrats. It’s important to pass this on. With the demand that we do away with the Electoral College and take the popular vote being pushed by the media, etc, all Americans need to know that the Electoral College is working exactly as our Founding Fathers intended.
“But we have to pass the [health care] bill so that you can find out what’s in it….”
~ Nancy Pelosi
Minority Leader of the United States House of Representatives, on passing the unconstitutional Obamacare/The so called “Affordable” Care Act.
Here is Moscow’s response to President Obama’s attempts to box in President Elect Trump, and our relationship with Russia:
Moscow (Vladimir Putin) calls Obama’s team a “bunch of geopolitical losers” engaged in a last-ditch effort to inflict the maximum possible damage to U.S.-Russia ties to make it more difficult for Trump to mend the rift.
In a clear effort to avoid risking a rapprochement with Trump, Putin showed remarkable restraint when the U.S. expelled 35 Russian diplomats over accusations of meddling in the U.S. election campaign. Instead of a usual tit-for-tat response, Putin invited U.S. diplomats’ children to a New Year’s party at the Kremlin.
Trump’s national security adviser, Michael Flynn, and Russia’s ambassador to the U.S. were in frequent contact in recent weeks, including on Dec. 29, the day Obama hit Moscow with sanctions in retaliation for election-related hacking, according to a senior U.S. official.
Moscow similarly refrained from retaliation when the White House last week added five Russians, including the chief of Russia’s top state investigative agency, to the U.S. sanctions list.
This is totally current end times prophecy happening as this message was given – yesterday, Sunday, 1/15/17. It revolves around the decision of the United Nations to make Palestine a state, thus fulfilling the Two State Solution. This is an excellent Biblical interpretation of current events.
Who would ever believe that WikiLeaks and their founder Julian Assange, would provide more reliable information and truth than the 17 United States Intelligence Agencies, including the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), and the Department of Homeland Security? It is NOT the rank and file FBI agents and intelligence personnel who are to blame. It is the heads of their respective agencies who are appointees of President Obama. Their jobs have been politicized. Never forget how FBI Director Jim Comey let Hillary Clinton skate when she should have been indicted!
Now it appears that the stories of the Russian hacking into our 2016 presidential elections may have been exaggerated, falsified, or even totally fabricated. There is no proof whatsoever afforded from our intelligence agencies that the hacking from Russia occurred! Julian Assange and WikiLeaks suggest quite the opposite.
Important Note: Vladimir Putin refused to Personna Non Grata (PNG or expel) American Diplomats in Moscow after President Obama did the same to over thirty Russian Diplomats in Washington, D.C. This is not protocol at all. Nations almost always return the favor when their own diplomats are PNGed. Why is this? I believe that Vladimir Putin interprets Barack Obama as a buffoon, a court jester on the world stage. Putin knows that President Obama is politically motivated, and attempting to undermine Trump’s presidency even before his administration begins. We are living in a strange day when the information provided by WikiLeaks is more trustworthy than that of the FBI! Things will change when President Elect Donald Trump drains the swamp (drains the cesspool?). Trump will appoint men of integrity to lead these great Intelligence Agencies. I am looking forward to the Presidential Inauguration on January 20, 2017, with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in attendance, and Franklin Graham speaking. Praise the Lord!
Julian Assange, founder of WikiLeaks in 2006, is permanently living in the embassy of Equador in London, England. His organization has exposed hundreds of thousands of leaks from governments and politicians throughout the world. He is charged with sexual crimes and sought asylum in this embassy, claiming there were no victims to the “crimes,” and that the government in Sweden simply trumped up the charges. Regardless of whether or not the charges are true, WikiLeaks is providing a valuable source of truth in a day of lies and corruption.

Doc Marquis ~ Interview/Hagmann & Hagmann
Doc Marquis was a seventh generation member of the Illuminati who converted to Christianity. There is a carefully orchestrated plan going on in the world today that has been followed since 1776. (Illuminati) It is the New World Order. The New World Order is structured after the previous world order in Europe- the monarchy, the social structure, and the religious cast. This structure presented a small elite group at the top, and peasantry below. The goal of the Illuminati is to resurrect this structure. America was the Illuminati’s idea. The Illuminati planned for America to be the new Atlantis. America was the nation planned to bring in the New World Order. America was planned to be the headquarters of this movement. Doc Marquis was saved on April 15, 1979 when he went to church that day. Christians witnessed to him for three years and it finally all came together. Doc Marquis became a born again child of the King and has been fighting the Illuminati ever since. The Illuminati studies the nefarious actions of dictators in order to achieve a plan for a new world order- Joseph Stalin, Mao Tse Tung, Pol Pot, Vladimir Lenin, Fidel Castro and Adolf Hitler. The Illuminati studies these dictators, and applies their strategies to the present. Consider our dictator Barack Hussein Obama. He follows the plans and actions of previous dictators. Our nation’s Healthcare system (Obamacare) is a power play for control over money, resources and people. It is socialism at its finest. Hitler’s “health plan” was to eliminate the unworthy and create a master race. When bureaucrats decide our fate, we have lost our freedoms and live under a totalitarian regime. Obama is changing the course of American history. He is trying to rewrite society. Whenever the Muslim theme comes up, he is all smiles. When Christianity is mentioned, he is full of complaints, and bashes it. He claims to be a Christian, and his empty profession of faith was a lie and simply expedient for political achievement. Obama loves the Muslim prayer call and calls it the “prettiest sound I ever heard.” He wears a ring written in the Muslim language. He disparages Christianity every chance that he gets. Going along with Muslim customs, Obama took off his ring for Ramadan. The New World Order/Illuminati is looking for total takeover by 2026-2028. This is the Illuminati time line. Doc Marquis spoke of martial law and a totalitarian grab for power. The Illuminati will have total control by then. They do not believe in heaven and hell, they believe in reincarnation.
The Boston Marathon Bombing was a False Flag test by the Illuminati, of implementing martial law on a group of people. No one protested invasions of privacy. Doc Marquis believes that 9/11/01 was another False Flag. The Boston Bombings determined the reaction and outcome of the civilian population to a martial law event. How did they react? They went right along, just like a bunch of sheep. No one stood up and said: “No!” People were ordered out of their homes. It looked like a takeover and no one protested! It was a small scale event, intended to work up to a bigger scale. It was a test.
Doc’s Final Comments:
Look to the pre signs. Prophecy is about to explode in a way that no one expected. If we have a decade or two left, I will be quite surprised. Look at the prophecies, and what happens just before them. (Doc Marquis)
Barack Obama’s Birth Certificate – The Gift That Keeps On Giving:
Jerome Corsi spoke at the 2015 Orlando Prophecy Conference, and is a well known ‘birther.’ It is beginning to look like those who believe in the fabrication of President Obama’s birth certificate are not a fringe group after all. After Obama’s term as president comes to a close, I believe the truth will be made known. In the article below, Jerome Corsi and Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Maricopa County, Arizona, have both concluded it is “not authentic.”
Key the following link –
A years-long forensics investigation into the computer image of the long-form Hawaiian birth certificate image that Barack Obama released during a White House news conference during his first term and presented to the American people as an official government document concluded it is “fake.”
The probe also confirms that those who were subjected to the derogatory “birther” label from many media outlets and Democrats were right – at least regarding the document used to establish Obama’s eligibility to be president.
The issue is that the U.S. Constitution requires the president to be a “natural-born citizen” but does not define the term. Scholarly works cited by the Founders defined it as a citizen at birth, born in the country to two citizens of the country, or merely the offspring of two citizens of the country.
The birth certificate Obama displayed on the White House website as “proof positive” of his eligibility states he was born in Hawaii to an American mother and a Kenyan father.
Some immediately pointed out alleged anomalies, questioning its validity, while others argued it also could prove his ineligibility because his father was not a citizen. Some of the lawsuits argued Obama was a dual citizen at birth through his father, contending the framers of the Constitution excluded dual citizens from qualifying as natural born citizens.
Eventually, just as the No. 1 bestseller “Where’s The Birth Certificate?” was combining with a challenge from billionaire businessman Donald Trump to force Obama’s hand, Obama held a White House news conference to release a copy of his birth certificate.
Now, what has been described as the only official law enforcement investigation ever done into the Obama birth certificate, ordered by Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Maricopa County, Arizona, has concluded it is “not authentic.”
See a video prepared by the investigators and released at a news conference on Thursday:
Jerome Corsi, Ph.D., WND senior staff writer and author of “Where’s the Birth Certificate?” was credited by sheriff’s officials with contributing to the investigation.
Corsi said Mike Zullo, head of the Cold Case Posse, and Sheriff Joe Arpaio “have done the United States a heroic service demonstrating by forensic analysis that the long form birth certificate produced in a White House news conference on April 27, 2011, as Barack Obama’s authentic birth certificate is a forgery.”
“The nine points of forgery between the Johanna Ah’nee birth certificate and Obama’s [long-form birth certificate] prove convincingly that the Ah’nee birth certificate was the source document from which the Obama LFBC was created.”
Corsi said Arpaio’s five-year effort “vindicates the extensive research WND conducted over years to bring this issue to the attention of the American public.”
“The inescapable conclusion is that the Hawaii Department of Health has not shown the American public the original 1961 birth records for Barack Obama, if they actually exist,” he said.
“That President Obama’s birth certificate is fake, as proven now by a legitimate law enforcement examination raises serious questions that high crimes and misdemeanors have been committed at the highest level of government. The clear conclusion is that the Obama presidency may have been illegitimate, having violated Article 2, Section 1 of the Constitution. Impeachment procedures may be required, even if those procedures are conducted after Obama leaves office.”
The sheriff’s video said there were nine images on the Obama birth certificate that appear to be identical to, and copied from, another birth certificate issued in Hawaii just days after his birth.
That certificate belongs to Johanna Ah’nee.
The copied items include the word “Honolulu,” “Oahu” twice, three different Xs. Their identical nature raised serious questions since they would have been applied to original documents by moving a typewriter carriage and roller at the time, a left date stamp and a right date stamp.
Explained the investigator on the video:
Doesn’t it just make sense that Alvin Onaka’s stamp and the April 25th date stamp were lifted from someplace also? Ask yourself this question. If anyone presented you with a document in your life that was this suspect would you readily accept it or would you begin an intense vetting, be it a house title, a car title, a piece of currency, anything? Would you accept something this suspect if presented to you in your life? If you answered no, then ask yourself a second question, don’t the American people have a right to vet the documents that they are presented by public officials.
One of the experts who assisted in the investigation was Reed Hayes, a court-qualified handwriting and document examiner, who runs a business in Hawaii. He is on the board of the Scientific Association of Forensic Examiners and has been in business nearly 40 years.
Forlabs, an Italian company that specializes in extracting information from multimedia files, also produced the results.
“We had two experts from two countries in separate disciplines of forensics that came to one conclusion: Barack Obama’s long form birth certificate it not authentic,” the report said.
Zullo, Arpaio’s lead investigator, said the “only reason why this investigation went forward and never came to a close was because of Sheriff Joe Arpaio.”
“Sheriff Arpaio utilized his statutory right to confirm his authority to conduct this investigation,” he said. “As a result, this investigation was done with the utmost of professionalism, unbiased and with no political motivation. We let the evidence direct the investigation.”
He pointed out that Arpaio and others on his team started out with the assumption that Obama’s document was legitimate and they just needed to affirm that.
“Every attempt was exercised to try to clear this document as authentic. However, the evidence and the weight of it simply would not permit that,” Zullo said.
During the news conference, Zullo quoted from the investigation of Hayes: “The (nail in the coffin) that proves that Certificate of Live Birth is inauthentic is the exact lineup of numerous entries on both [certificates].”
He said the experts likened the evidence to being as reliable as a fingerprint.
Zullo said there also were indications of problems when he interviewed Hawaiian officials about the document. He said they verified there was a birth record on file, but Hawaii statutes allow amendments to a birth document, so there is no way to know the details.
Regarding the birth announcements in local newspapers, there is a problem, he said.
“They don’t tell you anything. Hawaii says the Department of Health in Hawaii must create a record based on the representation from anyone.”
The local hospital also refused to help, he said.
“We have no idea what’s on that birth certificate. We have no idea if there was a birth certificate,” he said. “We don’t know if he’s a natural born citizen. That wasn’t anything we were pursuing.”
He noted that the safety paper appearing in the birth certificate image can even be purchased on Ebay.
Sheriff Arpaio added, “Five years ago I said one thing, show us the microfiche, the birth certificate and we’ll all go home.
“I plan on turning over this investigation this month to the federal government. And Congress. And hope Congress No. 1 will pass a law, the president should be vetted. Common sense.
“Maybe some members of Congress will hold some hearings, open to the public regarding this matter. … If they can hold hearings … on underinflated footballs, why can’t you hold one on this?
“Look at our evidence, just look at it,” he concluded. “I’m going tell you right now, we’re not going to answer any questions. We have sensitive information, but I’m not going into it.”
But he called it a “fake, fake, birth certificate.”
The sheriff’s office concluded: “It is the opinion of the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office that the birth certificate on your right, belonging to Johanna Ah’nee, was in fact used as a source document in the digital creation of Barack Obama’s long form birth certificate.”
The video notes nine points of “forgery.”
“What are the odds that two stamps in two separate boxes stamped by hand … days apart would have the exact same angle?” the investigators ask.
“It should be pointed out these stamps were looked at by two separate document examiners in two forensic disciplines on two continents,” the video explains.
The investigators went further in their analysis, finding twin sisters whose birth certificates are similar to Ah-nee’s.
While they were born minutes apart their documents have variations that are not found between Ah’nee’s and Obama’s, who were born weeks apart.
“When you have two separate documents with two hand-placed stamps at the same angles, obviously a forgery has taken place,” the investigators said.
Ironically, the New York Post on Thursday posted a plea by celebrities to electors to not vote for Trump because they instead should support a man “with the requisite qualifications” when the investigation reveals the man who has been president for eight years has yet to document his qualifications.
On that issue, a coalition of mostly lesser-known celebrities appealed for 37 “conscientious Republican electors” to abandon their oaths to support the Republican winner and vote for someone else.
Even if such as extraordinary and unlikely move was successful, it still wouldn’t deny Trump the presidency, since it would then just throw the election to the House of Representatives, where members would have only the choice of Trump or Hillary Clinton.
WND reported when the news conference was announced how the issue had badgered Obama from before his first inauguration until well into his second term. Now, apparently, it’s raining on his legacy.
WND reported Obama explained he decided to release it because the Internet “chatter” was becoming a “distraction.”
At the time, the Washington Times described Obama as “visibly frustrated” and noted that a recent CBS News-New York Times poll showed 45 percent of registered Republican voters believe Obama was not born in the U.S.
“I know that there’s going to be a segment of people for which, no matter what we put out, this issue will not be put to rest, but I’m speaking to the vast majority of the American people,” Obama said then. “We do not have time for this kind of silliness. We’ve got better stuff to do. I’ve got better stuff to do.”
His statement came just was he was departing for Chicago to appear on Oprah Winfrey’s television show.
But while the issue became known in liberal and left-leaning circles as the biggest “conspiracy” theory of all time, some document experts questioned the validity of the birth certificate Obama released. Arpaio responded to a petition from his constituents by launching a formal “Cold Case Posse” law enforcement investigation of the document.
In 2012, Arpaio held a news conference that concluded there was probable cause to believe the document Obama released as an official government document is a computer-generated forgery.
Arapaio, known for his strict enforcement of immigration laws, commissioned the investigative team after local citizens presented him with a petition expressing concern that Obama might not be eligible for Arizona’s presidential ballot.
Mike Zullo, Arpaio’s lead investigator, said at the time his team believed the Hawaii Department of Health engaged in a systematic effort to hide from public inspection any original 1961 birth records it may have in its possession.
The sheriff even deputized preacher, pastor, author, radio host and former law enforcement officer Carl Gallups of the PPSIMMONS blog in his pursuit of the truth.
“This investigation and its forensic conclusions in my opinion will vindicate a lot of people. That vindication includes the sheriff and his investigator of course but also president-elect Donald Trump. It also vindicates millions of Americans who dared to ask questions about this nefarious birth certificate and have been lampooned and marginalized by certain members of the press and other operatives for doing so. The investigation also vindicates those in the press who did have the guts to speak to this and to spend time investigating it, like WND,” Gallups said.
“I have a feeling that this matter is not over. Not by a long shot. I cannot imagine that authorized federal authorities will now not step in and investigate this matter to its conclusion.
“The potential ramifications of the findings of this investigation are astounding. Perhaps historical,” he said.
The Cold Case Posse advised Arpaio at that time they believed forgers committed two crimes. First, they said it appeared the White House fraudulently created a forgery that it characterized as an officially produced governmental birth record. Second, the White House fraudulently presented to the residents of Maricopa County and to the American public at large a forgery represented as “proof positive” of President Obama’s authentic 1961 Hawaii long-form birth certificate.
The investigators also said they had developed credible evidence that Obama’s Selective Service card was a forgery, based on an examination of the postal date stamp on the document. Also, records of Immigration and Naturalization Service cards filled out by passengers arriving on international flights originating outside the United States in the month of August 1961, examined at the National Archives in Washington, D.C., were missing records for the week of President Obama’s birth.
Arpaio said then a “continuing investigation” was needed, and his investigators set to work.
WND reported in 2015 when the issue was raised in a CNN interview in which anchor Jake Tapper excoriated Arpaio for questioning Obama’s document.
See the interview:
On CNN’s “The Lead,” Tapper said, “You’ve trafficked in this rather preposterous notion that Obama was not born in the United States and that he may have forged his birth certificate that he released.”
He continued, “Why would you risk your credibility on issues you care about – like illegal immigration, like law enforcement – by getting involved in this nonsense?”
“What do you mean ‘risk’?” Arpaio asked. “I’m the chief law enforcement officer elected by the people. I have a right to investigate and speak out. I’m not talking about where he came from. I don’t care where he came from. We’re working on a fraudulent, forged government document. That’s what we are doing.”
Tapper interjected, “You’re maintaining that the birth certificate that the president of the United States revealed and released to the public, you’re maintaining that that is fraudulent?”
Obama’s birth certificate: It’s still in the news after all these years. Now get the No. 1 bestselling book that forced the release of the document being challenged anew as fraudulent in an official law enforcement report.
“That’s right,” Arpaio responded.
The CNN host asked, “Is there anyone, any credible law enforcement person outside of you and your organization and your contractors, who has any agreement with you on this?”
“No, they haven’t looked at it,” Arpaio said. “What, are you kidding? I’m probably the only law enforcement official who has looked into it. Nobody looks into it. They shy away from it.”
Once again, a flustered Tapper interrupted: “Because the president was born in Hawaii.”
“I don’t care where he was born,” Arpaio replied. “I’m talking about a fraudulent government document, a birth certificate. That’s all I’m concerned with. That’s a violation of the law.”
Previously, Arpaio affirmed he was “pretty well convinced” Obama’s birth certificate, as released by the White House in 2011, is a “fraudulent, fake document.”
“I’ve been in law enforcement 55 years,” Arpaio told “Aaron Klein Investigative Radio.” “I think I know a fraudulent, fake document. I’m not a computer expert. I rely on my people. But I’m pretty well convinced it’s a fake document.”
Listen to “Aaron Klein Radio” clip of Joe Arpaio discussing Obama’s birth certificate:
But Zullo has indicated the White House computer image of Obama’s birth certificate contains anomalies that are unexplainable unless the document had been fabricated piecemeal by human intervention, rather than being copied from a genuine paper document.
Zullo has noted that Reed Hayes, a document examiner who has served as expert witness for Seattle law firm Perkins Coie – the firm that flew an attorney to Honolulu to personally deliver two paper copies of the birth certificate to the White House – has concluded in a signed affidavit that the document posted on the White House website is “entirely fabricated.”
The issue was complicated by Hawaiian officials refusing to verify any information about Obama’s birth certificate. Even the hospital where Obama said he was born refused to cooperate.
Also, at the time Obama was born, only a short time after Hawaii was admitted as a state, there were a number of ways a Hawaiian birth certificate could have been obtained without the person having been born in Hawaii.
Six years into Obama’s administration, WND reported a poll revealed nearly one-quarter of American adults didn’t even believe he’s a U.S. citizen, let alone a “natural-born citizen,” and another 17 percent were unsure.
Rasmussen Reports found 41 percent of Republicans believed Obama is not an American citizen, a belief shared by 21 percent of those who are unaffiliated and 11 percent of Democrats.
“Just over 20 percent of Republicans and unaffiliated adults also are not sure, but only 7 percent of those in the president’s party share that doubt,” the polling organization said in a report titled “Have We Got A Conspiracy for You – 9/11? JFK? Obama’s Citizenship?”
Overall, 23 percent said the theory that Obama is not an American citizen is true, and another 17 percent said they weren’t sure. Sixty percent reject the theory as false.
Ironically, in recent months it’s been, Obama, his wife Michelle, Secretary of State John Kerry and even his former Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, who have raised the issue over and over.
It was during an appearance in Nairobi, Secretary of State John Kerry said he thanked the Kenyan president for giving America “a president of the United States” – a comment alluding to the contested issue of where Obama was born.
Kerry told Kenya’s foreign minister he had a conversation with Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta concerning the Olympic Games in Rio and President Obama’s birthplace:
I had the pleasure of beginning that meeting [with Kenyatta], as I want to begin this press conference this afternoon, by congratulating Kenya on something no nation’s athletes have ever before accomplished, and that is to win both the men’s and the women’s marathon races at the Olympic Games. Absolutely extraordinary. When I mentioned that to President Kenyatta, he promptly said to me, “Well, we also had a hand in helping you win a silver because the person who won came from Kenya.” (Laughter.)
“And I said, “Actually, Mr. President, you did better than a silver and a gold. You gave us a president of the United States.” (Laughter.) So you can see we had a very friendly and positive beginning to the conversation.
Watch the video of Kerry’s remarks:
Obama himself raised the question at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, during an address in which he urged Americans to elect Clinton.
“You know, there’s been a lot of talk in this campaign about what America’s lost – people who tell us that our way of life is being undermined by pernicious changes and dark forces beyond our control,” Obama said. “They tell voters there’s a ‘real America’ out there that must be restored. This isn’t an idea that started with Donald Trump. It’s been peddled by politicians for a long time – probably from the start of our Republic.
“And it’s got me thinking about the story I told you 12 years ago tonight, about my Kansas grandparents and the things they taught me when I was growing up. They came from the heartland; their ancestors began settling there about 200 years ago. I don’t know if they had their birth certificates, but they were there.”
The mention of “birth certificates,” which prompted laughter and cheers from the crowd, was a deviation from the president’s prepared remarks, and comes just two nights after his wife, first lady Michelle Obama, brought up the issue of her husband’s citizenship and faith during her speech to the DNC.
At that time, Michelle Obama said one of her jobs in the White House was to teach her daughters “to ignore those who question their father’s citizenship or faith.”
She was referencing the challenges to her husband’s constitutional qualification for office as a “natural born citizen.”
Hillary Clinton “went birther” during a campaign appearance in Charlotte, North Carolina when she tweeted, “Someone who has never forgotten where he came from. And Donald, if you’re out there tweeting: It’s Hawaii.” –Hillary on @POTUS
Among the many records the Obama camp has refused to release are the marriage license of his father (Barack Sr.) and mother (Stanley Ann Dunham), name-change records (Barry Soetero to Barack Hussein Obama), adoption records, records of his and his mother’s repatriation as U.S. citizens from Indonesia, baptism records, Noelani Elementary School (Hawaii) records, Punahou School financial aid or school records, Occidental College financial aid records, Harvard Law School records, Columbia senior thesis, Columbia College records, record with Illinois State Bar Association, files from his terms as an Illinois state senator, his law client list, medical records and passport records.

Prime minister labels U.N. resolution on Jewish settlements a hindrance to peace
TEL AVIV—Israel’s prime minister on Saturday accused the Obama administration of a “shameful” act against his country after the U.S. helped pass a United Nations resolution that labels Jewish settlements illegal, saying it will only make it more difficult to negotiate peace with Palestinians.
The comments by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu came a day after the White House broke from a longstanding tradition of defending Israel against censure by the U.N. Security Council. Palestinians, too, voiced skepticism that the resolution would advance a two-state solution to their decades-old conflict with Israel.
“The Obama administration made a shameful anti-Israel ploy in the U.N.,” Mr. Netanyahu said. “The decision not only doesn’t bring peace closer, it keeps it away.”
Mr. Netanyahu’s statements Saturday elaborated on the Israeli government’s comments after the resolution passed.
The Obama administration said the move to abstain was in line with decades of U.S. policy aimed at establishing a Palestinian state and condemning settlement construction.
The U.S. decision not to veto the resolution underscored the fractious relationship between President Barack Obama and Israel’s leader over the past eight years and again put the Israeli-Palestinian conflict at the center of global diplomacy.
It was the first time in 36 years the Security Council was able to adopt a resolution condemning Israeli settlement construction in the West Bank and East Jerusalem. It was approved with 14 members in favor and the U.S. abstaining.
Both government and opposition lawmakers in Israel criticized the U.S. decision. Officials accused the Obama administration of working behind Israel’s back with the Palestinians to put forward the resolution, a charge the White House denied.
The Obama administration for months had been considering ways to revive Israeli-Palestinian talks after the last round of U.S.-brokered negotiations collapsed in 2014. Israel’s government became increasingly convinced Mr. Obama might take action after Donald Trump’s surprise election victory, describing the time before the president-elect’s Jan. 20 inauguration as the “kill zone” for a move.
The resolution labeled Jewish settlement illegal and called on U.N. member nations to distinguish “in their relevant dealings between the territory of the state of Israel and the [Palestinian] territories.”
The organization that represents Jewish settlers echoed Mr. Netanyahu’s assertion that the resolution will only make Palestinians less apt to compromise on any Middle East peace deal and will encourage violence against Israelis.
A few hours before the U.N. passed the resolution on Friday, a Palestinian assailant stabbed an Israeli settler in the West Bank settlement of Efrat, wounding the victim before fleeing, Israel’s military said.
A few miles away from Efrat in the Palestinian city of Bethlehem, residents celebrating Christmas Eve were skeptical that the U.N. resolution would change Israel’s policies. A resolution condemning the settlements had become more urgent for Palestinians with Mr. Trump’s election as he supports moving the U.S. embassy in Israel to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv.
Palestinians oppose such a move, as they want part of Jerusalem as the capital of a future Palestinian state.
Palestinians welcomed the U.N. vote as a step forward in nonviolent resistance against Israel.

Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel has encouraged, allowed, and enhanced massive immigration of Muslims into Europe. She is responsible for the over one million recent Islamic immigrants, mostly from Syria. There is a You Tube on this blog site that went viral in Europe, highlighting the massive immigration of Syrians into Europe. Merkel is President Barack Obama’s bookend in reference to her desire to allow huge blocks of Muslims into western nations. She and Obama are political soul mates. She KNEW that 2% of these immigrants would be radical Islamic extremists, yet allowed them! Crunch the numbers. 2% of one million is 20,000 terrorists. Angela Merkel has blood on her hands. Whether you like Donald Trump or not, he is the only leader I have heard who could care less about political correctness. He just said that “Radical Islamic terrorists must be exterminated.” It sounds like the Orkin man going after cockroaches. I personally believe that terrorists are demon possessed. Their dogma is certainly a doctrine of demons.
*** In an unrelated series of political current events to the topic of this particular article, it has just been learned that the outcome of the December 19 Electoral College vote has once again backfired on the Democrats. Instead of gaining Electoral Votes in order to oust President Elect Donald Trump, Trump has gained four more votes who went from the Democrats to the Republican. To refresh your memory, the same thing happened in the vote recounts… Trump received more votes after the recounts. When we were children, we used to call these situations cheater’s proof. ***

BERLIN (AP) — Germany must assume a truck plowing through a crowded Christmas market in Berlin was a “terrorist attack,” Chancellor Angela Merkel said Tuesday, while authorities expressed uncertainty over whether they had arrested the correct suspect.
Twelve people were killed and nearly 50 others injured when the truck drove into the popular Christmas market filled with tourists and locals outside the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church near Berlin’s Zoo station late Monday.
Police detained an asylum-seeker from Pakistan shortly afterward, but he denied involvement, Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere said. The man had entered Germany on Dec. 31 last year and arrived in Berlin in February.
Berlin police chief Klaus Kandt said Tuesday it wasn’t clear whether the man detained was really the driver.
“We haven’t been able to confirm it yet,” he told reporters.
Berlin police urged people to remain “particularly vigilant” and to report “suspicious movement” to a special hotline.
In a statement widely broadcast on German television, Merkel described herself as “shocked, shaken and deeply saddened.”
“There is still a lot that we don’t know about this act with sufficient certainty,” she said. “But we must, as things stand, assume it was a terrorist attack.”
Merkel, who has been criticized for allowing in large numbers of migrants, addressed head-on the possibility that an asylum-seeker was responsible.
“I know that it would be particularly hard for us all to bear if it were confirmed that a person committed this act who asked for protection and asylum in Germany,” Merkel said. “This would be particularly sickening for the many, many Germans who work to help refugees every day and for the many people who really need our help and are making an effort to integrate in our country.”
Authorities arrested a man about 2 kilometers (1½ miles) from the crash site on suspicion of having been at the wheel of the truck. Footage showed the suspect, his head covered in a white sheet, being pushed into a police car shortly after the attack. Berlin’s Tagesspiegel newspaper reported that the man was known to police for minor crimes.
A spokesman for Berlin’s office for refugee affairs said police conducted a large-scale search overnight at a large shelter for asylum-seekers at the city’s now-defunct Tempelhof airport. Four men in their late 20s were questioned but nobody was arrested, Sascha Langenbach told The Associated Press.
Among the dead was a man in the truck, who succumbed as paramedics treated him, Berlin police spokesman Winfried Wenzel said. Police said later that the man was a Polish national, but didn’t give further details of who he was or what happened to him.
The Polish owner of the truck said he feared it may have been hijacked. Ariel Zurawski said he last spoke with the driver, his cousin, around noon, and the driver told him he was in Berlin and scheduled to unload Tuesday morning. “They must have done something to my driver,” he told TVN24.
Germany has not so far experienced any mass-casualty attacks by Islamic extremists, but has been increasingly wary since two attacks by asylum-seekers in the summer that were claimed by the Islamic State group. Five people were wounded in an ax rampage on a train near Wuerzburg and 15 in a bombing outside a bar in Ansbach, both in the southern state of Bavaria. Both attackers were killed.
Those attacks, and two others unrelated to Islamic extremism in the same weeklong period, contributed to tensions in Germany over the arrival last year of 890,000 migrants.
De Maiziere said that as far as officials know, the Islamic State group has not claimed responsibility for Monday’s attack in Berlin.
Far-right groups and a nationalist party seized on it, blaming Merkel for what had happened.
“Under the cloak of helping people Merkel has completely surrendered our domestic security,” Frauke Petry, the co-chairwoman of the Alternative for Germany party, wrote.
Manfred Weber, a member of Merkel’s conservative bloc and leader of the European Parliament’s biggest political grouping, cautioned against sweeping verdicts but said it was important to ensure that extremists didn’t enter the country.
The German government said Merkel spoke Tuesday with President Barack Obama, who expressed his condolences. In Washington, White House National Security Council spokesman Ned Price said the United States was ready to help in the investigation and response.
U.S. President-elect Donald Trump said Islamic extremists must be “eradicated from the face of the earth” and pledged to carry out that mission with all “freedom-loving partners.”
The attack came less than a month after the U.S. State Department warned that extremist groups including Islamic State and al-Qaida were focusing “on the upcoming holiday season and associated events” in Europe.
The Islamic State group and al-Qaida have both called on followers to use trucks in particular to attack crowds. On July 14, a truck plowed into Bastille Day revelers in the southern French city of Nice, killing 86 people. Islamic State claimed responsibility for that attack, which was carried out by a Tunisian living in France.
Merkel said Monday’s attack would not cause Germany to live in fear.
“Even if it’s difficult at this hour we will find the strength to live life the way we want to live it in Germany. Free, together and openly,” she said.
