Flashback for the Truth: Unearthed Video — Early “birther” Hillary Clinton and her campaign used Chris Matthews in Dec 2007 to get aired and widely spread on MSNBC, the comments made by former U.S. Senator Bob Kerrey, a Clinton surrogate. Chris Matthews on his show mentioned the remarks by Bob Kerrey and the chatter on the blogs that Obama was born in Indonesia and has an Islamic background and asking why are Hillary’s operatives are talking about it. His show gave the developing “birther” chatter national media coverage and longer legs (the intent imo) all the while being superficially critical of others talking about it. What’s with that, etc.? Note the smirk on Chris’ face as he talks about the issue. Hillary wanted the story out on a national news or talk show and Chris Matthews made it happen. Nice tactic by Chris Matthews. Questioning the motives of others, but Chris Matthews was knowingly giving the story longer legs while doing it. Who really was the clever one in getting the early Obama “birther” rumors and story out that Hillary and her political operatives wanted out far and wide and who was carrying Hillary Clinton’s water to get that Obama foreign-birth “birther” story out further and feigning to the audience simple inquisitiveness about it back then in Dec 2007 (and now acts like he and Hillary had nothing to do with seeding the original Obama was foreign-born “birther” stories into the national media early on). What a hypocrite Mr. Chris Matthews was then and still is now as to who put out the Obama birth location revelations first: http://www.birtherreport.com/2015/09/unearthed-video-chris-matthews-reports.html
However, Let Us No Forget. While Hillary Clinton and Her Campaign and Chris Matthews Did Their Clever Best to Spread the Early “Birther” Story Further in the National Media, It Should Be Remembered That Obama Himself Was The Very First “Birther”, That Is a Person Saying He Was Not Born in The USA. Obama Said That About Himself for Many Years Prior to Deciding to Run for President. So Obama Himself is the Start of That Fact, i.e., Who Started It.

While Chris Matthews was willing to spread the talk about Obama’s connections and sympathies to Islam back in Dec 2007 he now expresses outrage when Republican Party candidates mention it or anything critical of Islam. But the facts are the facts, western civilization has a well founded right and historical grounds to fear the spread of Islam into our democracies and the infiltration of our government based on its founding tenets that were preached by its prophet Mohammad and its history. Islam is both a supremacist combined political system and religion, unlike other large world religions. The founder of Christianity, Jesus said render unto Caeser what is Caeser’s and unto God what is God’s. There is no separation of church and state in Islam and it is totally incompatible to our U.S. Constitution and our republic. Islamists will submit to western constitutional laws until they get enough numbers. At that point they will object and demand the establishment of Sharia Law. First for them and then eventually for everyone once they gain majority political power. It is a supremacist religion and political system that is intolerant of other religions and western concepts of government. In Islamic teachings their religious Sharia law is supreme and is the foundation law of their states. Islam’s tenets teach that there will be no peace in the world until the whole world submits to Islam and is governed by Islamic Sharia Law and thus the centuries of Jihad beginning since the days of their prophet against its non-Islamic neighbors, either by force of arms or by infiltration and migration. Learn more as to why we in the western democracies should be very concerned about the recent large scale spread of Mohammedans to Europe and elsewhere, including plans to allow 10s if not 100s of thousand to migrate to the USA due to their continued religious warring within their own ranks and with their neighbors in the middle east: http://www.kerchner.com/islam/books.htm

P.S. Here is a chart which lists and explains the five (5) Citizenship terms used in the U.S. Constitution.
P.P.S. Being a “born Citizen” or “Citizen at Birth” is not identically the same as a being a “natural born Citizen”.
P.P.P.S. Obama is NOT a “natural born Citizen of the United States” to U.S. Constitutional standards. Read this essay regarding the legal term of art “natural born Citizen” and basic logic, i.e., trees are plants but not all plants are trees. Natural born Citizens are a subset of “born Citizens (citizens at birth)”. All “natural born Citizens” are “born Citizens (citizens at birth) but not all “born Citizens (citizens at birth)” are “natural born Citizens”: https://cdrkerchner.wordpress.com/2012/06/20/of-natural-born-citizens-and-citizens-at-birth-and-basic-logic-trees-are-plants-but-not-all-plants-are-trees-natural-born-citizens-nbc-are-citizens-at-birth-cab-but-not-all-cab/ Also read the “Three Legged Stool Test” for Natural Born Citizen https://cdrkerchner.wordpress.com/2013/11/15/the-three-legged-stool-test-analogy-for-natural-born-citizenship-of-the-united-states-to-constitutional-standards/ … AND … http://www.art2superpac.com/issues.html Also watch this video by the renowned constitutional scholar Dr. Herb Titus: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=esiZZ-1R7e8
