Wow! Such willful ignorance.

So where are his tax returns?????
"He promised." (Ha!)
Where's his divestment of his interests that are supposed to go into a Blind Trust?
Where's his draining of the swamp?

You're delusional if you think this self-serving, narcissistic, treasonous hypocritical, con man has anyone's interest but his own at heart.
Gotta have one, first. A heart, that is.

Talk about ignorance.

Demanding to see a presidents birth certificate is reasonable since the US Constitution Article 2 section 1.5.
"No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States."

So it is reasonable to expect a presidential candidate to prove that the above requirements have been met.

Please show me the regulation which requires anyone including a presidential candidate to make his income tax returns public. Since the 1970's most have but there is no law requiring it.

As for divestment of his interests, please show me the regulation which requires a president to divest himself of all of his potential conflicts of interest. My understanding is that the only requirement is that he doesn't accept income from foreign governments. He has addressed this. He has said that any income from foreign governments from any of his businesses will be donated to charities.

If you can find any conflict of interest regulations which apply to the president please provide a link.

As for "draining the swamp", he is replacing Obama and Kerry. That works for me.

It doesn't matter what you think his motives are, he was legally elected and no one has found any legal reason to deny him the presidency.

One of the main reasons that he was elected was to repeal Obamacare. That was part of his platform.

Twas the Night Before Inauguration!

Twas the night before Inauguration, and up in the tower,
The Donald reflected on his newfound power.
The conservative masses had come out in force,
And delivered a victory that would chart a new course.
The snowflakes were shell-shocked with tears in their eyes,
The media lied to them . . . What a surprise.
They had been promised a Hillary win,
But the criminal Clinton took one on the chin.
And though from all corners celebrities flew,
They made no impression, for they hadn’t a clue.
They talked about climate, racism, and such,
And they made up good stories . . . But didn’t know much.
The fake news and ignorance came at a cost,
And they can’t understand all the reasons they lost.
They blame it on Comey and Bernie and Vlad,
But fail to acknowledge the one that was bad.
Yes, Hillary Clinton, in many ways flawed,
Was her own biggest hurdle toward getting the nod.
The campaign exposed her corruptness and greed,
And her speeches were punch-less as ten dollar weed.
So out in the streets there arose such a clatter,
It was Soros-paid protestors and Black Lives Matter.
With cities to pillage and windows to smash,
They knew not the issues, but needed the cash.
Eight years of Obama had given them cause,
To expect a replacement of their Santa Claus.
But soon the protestors will feel the pain,
When the wheels fall off of the old gravy train.
And now all the snowflakes are riddled with fear,
Upset and offended by things that they’ll hear.
The cocoa and crayons will help for a while,
But fact-based opinions will soon cramp their style.
I originally supported, and voted, for Cruz,
In the end, I would vote for whoever they choose.
He wasn’t my first choice, but soon I would cede,
The one they call Trump is the one that we need.
I saw him on TV in front of a crowd,
He spoke about veterans, it made me feel proud.
He spoke about energy, safety, and jobs,
Taking this country back from the Washington snobs.
He was dressed in Armani, all tailored and neat,
And the Brunos he wore made the outfit complete.
For a man of his vintage, he seemed rather fit,
And he looked presidential, I have to admit.
His eyes glowed like embers, his smile was the best,
And his hair was the color of my old hunting vest.
His love for this country was on full display,
And his actions spoke louder than his words could say.
He thanked all his voters, and before he was gone,
Saved thousands of jobs while Obama looked on.
The fate of this country left nothing to chance,
So, he filled out his cabinet weeks in advance.
The men he had chosen were of the same mind,
Let’s set the bar high, and not lead from behind.
He picked up his phone as he rose from his seat,
With a flick of his finger, he sent out this tweet;
“Now Mattis!, now Kelly!’ now Sessions! And Pruitt!
On Perry! On Flynn, You’re the ones who can do it.
Start lifting restrictions and building the wall,
Now dash away! Dash away! Dash away all!”;
The roar of his audience rose from the stands,
He kissed all their babies and shook all their hands.
He answered their questions and calmed all their fears,
They knew it would be a fantastic four years.
Then he jumped in his limo, and off to his jet,
A fellow that Liberals won’t soon forget.
He sent one more tweet as the evening expired;
“Happy Inauguration to all,
AND OBAMA – YOU'RE FIRED!"

One sunny day in January, 2017, an old man approaches the White House from across Pennsylvania Avenue where he’d been sitting on a park bench. He speaks to the U.S. Marine standing guard and says,

“I would like to go in and meet with President Obama.”
...

The Marine looks at the man and says,

“Sir, Mr. Obama is no longer president and no longer resides here.”

The old man says,

“Okay,” and walks away.

The following day the same man approaches the White House and says to the same Marine,

“I would like to go in and meet with President Obama.”

The Marine again tells the man,

“Sir, as I said yesterday, Mr. Obama is no longer president and no longer resides here.”

The man thanks him and again walks away.

On the third day, the same man approaches the White House and speaks to the very same U.S. Marine, saying,

“I would like to go in and meet with President Obama.”

The Marine, understandably agitated at this point, looks at the man and says,

“Sir, this is the third day in a row you have been here asking to speak to Mr. Obama. I’ve told you already that Mr. Obama is no longer the president and no longer resides here. Don’t you understand?”

The old man looks at the Marine and says,

“Oh, I understand. I just love hearing it.”

The Marine snaps to attention, salutes, and says,

“See you tomorrow, Sir!”

Strange, I didn't know they had Photoshop back in those days in Hawaii...

You realize his submitted "birth certificate" had layers, right?

I'll assume your one of those types that uses computers and doesn't really understand how they function...

But basically: when you copy a real document you get a 1 layer file, a "photo" of the document.

When you edit documents or pictures you use layers putting 1 thing on top of another, there is no way to get layers out of an original document scan.

Actually, I was only mentioning the birther thing because Alana mentioned that Trump is a Russian puppet.

Where is the evidence that Trump is a Russian puppet? There is as much evidence of that as there is that Obama was born in Kenya.

Over 25 years in IT, and I currently run 6 web sites. I'm also pretty adept at Photoshop and OCR, having experience in both. But thanks for the condescending lesson, anyway. I'm sure it made you feel good.

This is a perfect illustration from the "a little knowledge is a dangerous thing" department. It has already been proven that one can scan a document, convert it to a PDF, optimize that, and then open it up in Illustrator, with the same results. Try it, and you too can create a layered image from a single piece of paper! Compression algorithms aren't perfect. btw, You most certainly can get layers from a scan from most off-the-shelf scanning software. It's the OCR interpretation attempts.

Can't wait to see what color the next straw is that the birthers try to grasp. Hoping for a tropical color - the bendable kind.

Now, about that prescient newspaper birth announcement . . . .

Except, 20 years ago (or so) Trump wasn't claiming to be a russian puppet.

Obama was claiming to be born in Kenya (I assume to leverage some sort of sympathy) which probably caused the whole birther thing to begin with (well, the fake hawaii birth cert didn't help).

so I'd say there's less evidence of a Russia <-> Trump tie in.

I've only got 19 years in IT, you've got me beat, but it's all been in the government (and now specializing in security), so I'm a bit less trusting than you are.

Who ever released it was an idiot that caused all this.. why wouldn't they just come out and say that? Why would you try to optimize an image of an original doc?

IMO the layers only ADD suspicion, nothing else... when this is looked at objectively.

and what about this:


at least it's a re-print and not an original (that paper style was certainly not around in the 1960's IIRC)

and then this idiotcy:

Maybe Trump can issue an executive order requiring the State of Hawaii to turn over the microfiche copies of Obama's birth certificate to the FBI. He will have that power soon.

I think that will depend upon how deeply he is entangled in her criminal behavior.
If he is untouchable, I think he will leave her hanging. He never liked her anyway.
After he beat her in 2008 he should have distanced himself from her.
Looks like the Clinton's are no longer in a position to sell our country. The Clinton global initiative is closing. Donations from foreign governments have dried up.

Old news. All of that has been addressed ad nauseum.Totally rational, common sense explanations for all of it. Of course, Breitbart would never cover those. Interesting that nobody wants to address that pesky, decades-old, newspaper birth announcement conspiracy. When somebody can explain that, I'll be happy to discuss this windmill fight further. But I want the next straw to be fuchsia - preferably sticking out of a tall Mudslide.

btw, Pretty curious how you figure working in government makes you more astute in the trust department. Sounds like an acute case of hubris, to me.

Anyone can publish anything they want in the news paper, there might have still be some journalistic ethics back then, but there were no requirements for birth announcements & his mother and fathers life style / "marriage" were hardly stable, this could have been an easy attempt by mom to secure her son; makes sense to me; doesn't prove anything either way however.

it's been printed, by his own representatives, with just as much authority (and more often) that he was born in Kenya.. no one seems to want to address that either.
