“The inside story of Obama’s birth certificate and the birth of fake news” | by Dylan Stableford | @ Yahoo News
Dan Pfeiffer, former assistant and senior adviser to President Barack Obama, thinks he knows the exact date the modern era of fake news was born: April 27, 2011.
“I had walked into the briefing room that morning with 50 copies of Barack Obama’s birth certificate,” Pfeiffer recalls in a memoir, “Yes We (Still) Can: Politics in the Age of Obama, Twitter, and Trump,” set to be published next week. “So we could prove once and for all the man who was in his third year as president after winning an historic electoral landslide was an American citizen and eligible to be president.”
The term “fake news” was not yet part of the political lexicon, Pfeiffer writes, “but this might very well have been the moment it when it rose from something that elicited an eyeroll to something that necessitated a full-throated response from the White House.”
The claim that Obama wasn’t born in the United States — the so-called birther conspiracy — first cropped up during the 2008 presidential campaign, when the then Illinois senator was campaigning in Iowa. The story originated in conspiratorial emails that were forwarded by fringe groups in an effort to undercut Obama’s candidacy.
While the mainstream media mostly refused to amplify it, “birtherism was gaining a disturbing amount of traction among some of the voters in rural Iowa,” Pfeiffer writes. “Our field organizers were getting questions from the voters they were contacting.” … continue reading at: http://www.yahoo.com/news/inside-story-obamas-birth-certificate-birth-fake-news-210911046.html

Some comments from me about the above New Fake News story:
In reality — Hillary Clinton, Bob Kerrey, and Chris Matthews were the very first “Birthers” as early as December 2007 re spreading information and questions about Obama’s early life and questionable background, Islamic affiliations, and alleged foreign birth: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QgSzm4_beH4
The key question re Obama’s eligibility to be President and Commander-in-Chief is a constitutional one. It’s not whether Obama is a “Citizen” of the United States it is whether he is a “natural born Citizen” of the United States per Article II of our U.S. Constitution, to constitutional standards. See my “White Paper” link on the subject further down.

Note: A key source of the intense pressure on Obama and his questionable ID documents which caused him to go further than the fake short-form birth certification document he exhorted beginning in June 2008, and then in April 2011 trying another step, i.e., the release the fake long-form birth certificate, was the 2+ years of full-page ads running week after week from early 2009 to April 2011 and beyond in the Washington Times National Weekly Edition informing about the questions re Obama’s questionable early life and his ever morphing early life narrative and his use, according to various experts, of altered, forged, and stolen ID documents.

A warning from the past — some conspiracies are very real and are also large and well organized and in process for a long time. Such is the nature of far-left Marxist activities in the USA. The target of the seditious political conspiracy we are currently faced with is to destroy our U.S. Constitution, our Republic, our culture, and our military. Remember this quote from history: “We must now face the harsh truth that the objectives of communism [now called Democratic Socialists of America] are being steadily advanced because many of us do not recognize the means used to advance them. … The individual is handicapped by coming face to face with a conspiracy so monstrous he cannot believe it exists. The American mind simply has not come to a realization of the evil which has been introduced into our midst.” Quote by: J. Edgar Hoover former FBI director. Source: Elks Magazine (August 1956).

P.S. Also 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)” 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/ … AND … http://www.scribd.com/document/161994312/Article-II-Presidential-Eligibility-Facts
