After speaking alongside Newt Gingrich at Liberty University’s Awakening 2011, Joseph Farah of WorldNetDaily is now praising Donald Trump for casting doubts on President Obama’s birth certificate. WorldNetDaily is a bastion for conspiracy theories about Obama and other issues, and most recently the website blatantly photoshopped a picture of Obama and his grandparents to try to find a “missing year” in his biography. Farah is one of the most vocal advocates of the discredited conspiracy that Obama is not a naturally-born citizen and consequently ineligible to serve as president, and even left CPAC after the gathering refused to hold his birther panel. In his column today, Farah says he is “eternally grateful” to Trump for propagating the conspiracy:
Donald Trump has billions of dollars and a very large megaphone.
I am eternally grateful to him for standing up boldly and demanding to see Barack Obama’s birth certificate, as I have been doing for the last two and a half years.
He probably doesn’t need my help, but I offer it here anyway. He’s right – and the gals on “The View” and Lisa Myers at NBC are dead wrong.
Obama has not revealed his long-form birth certificate to anyone. And people who work in the press should be the first to recognize that rather than making excuses for the occupant of the White House to continue his stonewalling crusade.
It’s a matter of constitutional integrity. It’s a matter of national security.
This charade has gone on much too long – aided and abetted by people like Lisa Myers and Bill O’Reilly.
So, don’t be discouraged, Mr. Trump. You are doing God’s work here. You’re right, and most of my colleagues in the news media are wrong. We have not seen the most essential and primary evidence needed to make a determination as to Barack Obama or Barry Soetoro’s constitutional eligibility to serve in the White House.
Amazingly enough, we still don’t know who this man is.
However, one thing the last two and a half years have established: He certainly has divided loyalties when it comes to the country he supposedly serves.
