Hillary Clinton and the birth of birtherism

Brian LilleyArchive

Hillary Clinton has been blasting Donald Trump for trafficking in birtherism but while she’s pointing the finger at him, the fact is, there are more fingers pointing back at her and her 2008 campaign against Obama for the democratic nomination. 

The truth is Hillary’s surrogates were pushing this back in 2008 largely in order to spread the idea that Hillary was a true American and Obama wasn’t quite American enough.

Of course that’s the very thing she and her surrogates are now suggesting about Trump - that he’s been attacking Obama because he’s not like him.

But, the fingerprints connecting this to her campaign are there as are the traces of left wing media’s efforts to spread these stories about Obama to help Hillary win the nomination.

Now, during this Presidential election, the media is letting her get away with pointing the finger at Trump while covering up her own role in starting birtherism in the first place.

It’s scandalous.

Not buying it John,
Despite the Ontario Liberals, Stephen Harper gave Ontarians prosperity.
He also put us back on the world stage.
Your argument holds no substance or merit.
You throw out half historical truths to support your " Left of Center " diatribe.
Pick a subject and we will provide you with facts.

Drew what you fail to understand is that in 2011 when I ran against crybaby Calandra in Oak Ridges – Markham all the mainstream parties ran from scripts and I as a youngster ran based on the heart and did not read a script but to expose the political class for what it is a fraud that does not want a truly united Canada and just trying to live off of the taxpayer dole, instead of truly representing all of Canadians as statesmen. I ran because I am sick and tired of the system the way it is and Rebel has the nerve to suggest that the Conservative party is not mainstream when it holds seats in parliament and by that very definition it is mainstream. We need new ideas, new politics and better representatives.

Check articles from that time, Drew, and you will see that I am a big Joe Clark fan and a person that sought to represent true PC value of Sir John A. and the party from 1942 to 2003. Who will save the Conservatives this time? Trudeau may lead Canada for a generation. I oppose him but I especially oppose this Republican/Conservative party of Canada for its dividing of Canadians and anti-Canadian values. We need to unify Canadians and transcend partisan politics.

You are wrong Brent because when I ran for the Progressive Canadian party a moderate conservative party in 2011 the party discussed about alternatives to the Harper Toryism of the day including last election.

The party feels that the Liberals own too much of the centre and that it is time for a party of the centre to centre-right for blue liberals, red tories, one nation conservatives, communitarians and having people that just plain want a change in Canadian politics.

A progressive conservative party is necessary now for MP independence and having people represent their constituents. It has nothing to do with following the Liberals or Trudeau. I do not believe in the lesser of evils. I believe in non-interventionism, using the Bank of Canada to pay for infrastructure, a truly achievable debt repayment plan for Canada, and a moderate foreign policy. All this is achievable and Drew and conservatives of the Reform/Alliance party type will never understand that there can be anti-mainstream Canadians which feel the Conservative party is about a cultist mentality!!

At the end of the day, it does not matter if Obama was born in the US or somewhere else. What matters is that the people gave him power. Obama is abusing that power and destroying Europe; The United States and with the aid of Justin, Canada!

What matters is that he is a traitor. He should have been impeached two years ago!

Hillary is just as bad! She has been getting away with treason for eight years or more. She actively jeopardized the National Security of The United States with her email’s and she is too sick to be President. She will make a wonderful puppet for Sorros or whoever is pulling their strings!

No one gives a rats ass about the crusades or the wrongs of the past. What I care about is the future of our children and I see no future if Islam is allowed to spread across the West. This poisonous ideology must be crushed.

And now,
For something completely different,
We have the dynamic duo of Sissyano/Kelly.
Wow! Did you two hammer heads go to the school of " Liberal Arts and Homosexuality "?
The bullshit that you guys post is unbelievable!
Regrettably, I have to concede that enough voters think and believe the same trash that you two twinkies espouse on this website……..
Trudope in the north, Obamination in the south.
Just remember this is what you asked for……

John S the government made the residential schools and there is lots of BS said about them . There were bad things happening but many claims have been debunked.

John S Cortes conquered for Spain and the smallpox blankets are a myth, and the crusades were Christians fighting back. So try some actual history for once in your life.

“Christianity grew by the sword just like Islam.”

Lie. It was social ostracism, torture and death to be a Christian in ancient Rome for centuries. Yet it grew. We really don’t know how good we have it today. Just imagine a festival of Kathleen Wynne where every Ontarian had to worship the Premier (and provide proof of that worship) on pain of death. Worship AS IF SHE WAS A GOD. Such abuse of authority was common place in the ancient world. If we were expected to give our WORSHIP to powerful men, NOTHING of ours could possibly be expected to be withheld from them. Droit de seigneur anyone?

Why do you think that we expect OUR leaders not to act the same? Why shouldn’t they in a world with no God? In a world without God, as far as Trudeau and any other leader knows, they are the most powerful people in the at least the Solar System. Maybe the Galaxy. Maybe the Universe. Who knows? Why shouldn’t they use their power to demand our worship as the Caesars of old?

Maybe, just maybe, we are (for now) spared the fate of ancient Romans because one Man who was the King of kings and the Lord of lords and who deserved and does deserve our worship deliberately made himself a SERVANT. This Servant, lived and died to protect all. Even the lowest of the low.

Maybe, just maybe, our concept of servant leadership with all its benefits, where the most powerful use their power to serve and protect the people rather than abuse them is all thanks to Jesus Christ.

The crusades John Siciliano? A defensive counter attack to Islamic aggression on Christian countries? You have got to be kidding me.

Yes some Christians have done some terrible things. Some I would not count as true Christians but even genuine Christians have done some crap as evidenced in the Bible itself.

Think King David murdering his friend to cover up the fact that he impregnated his friend’s wife. the Bible didn’t hide this fact and (importantly) it didn’t condone it. No Imam came to King David to issue a Fatwa saying that his murder and adultery were justified. No. Nathan came and told him that he had done evil. No sugar coating at all. David accepted that his actions were evil and the punishment for those actions. Unlike Mohammed, who came up with a verse to justify his darkest desires, the Bible condemned evil right to the face of the most powerful men in society.

So yes, some Christians have done evil but they have always done it in contradiction to the teaching of scriptures. They were not behaving as Christians ought to behave.

The crusades as a whole are not one of those evil acts. It is worth noting that some Muslims are eternally outraged at Christians for having the temerity to effectively defend themselves aggression that Muslims felt entitled to inflict.

Jay Kelly commented – “Donald Trump promoted the idea that Barack Obama was born outside of the United States.”

No he didn’t.

Donald Trump promoted the idea that Barack Obama was born outside of the United States.

It was ridiculous and everyone new it. The Republican Party clung to this rumor as a way to gain support.

Today Donald Trump is desperate for support. He is even going to this narrative.

With regard to Crooked Hillary, and her ilk, there is no end to the lies, deceit, and rhetoric cleverly cloaking the ‘win at all cost’ belligerent and obstinate Marxist Megalomaniacs. Even her so called ‘illness’ was a mere exercise in hollywoodism, deflection, attention grabbing and Alinsky tactics.

John S., the self-proclaimed “non-interventionist”, sure seems to adamantly attempt to ‘intervene’ by waving his holier-than-thou finger while proselytizing and re-iterating his delusional paradigm of reality from his pristine Marxist pulpit, all-the-while, looking down his Pinocchian nose at Christianity as being the source of all evil in the world. From John’s incessant hate-mongering of Christianity, it is clear that the inability to apply proper context (especially historic facts) and discern the truth, leaves the door to the mind’s prefrontal cortex remaining sealed shut from greater understanding and transcendence, and further, prone to deceit, corruption and subversion from the evil spin doctors that are masters of egoistic triumphalism and sensationalism.

Christianity, in and of itself, should not be convoluted with the errors of human beings, for they are of two totally different dimensions. Furthermore, the reality of the Residential Schools saved many lives as a result of Christian compassion and goodwill. I know because I’ve experienced it. It’s truly amazing how the lust for money can obfuscate the truth.

And to fully understand the Crusades would be to also put those events into proper context and understand that it was about preservation, firstly, and secondly, a proactive choice to subdue the fear and barbarism, mainly of islam. Seeing what islam is today should provide a small glimpse and perspective into understanding how vile and destructive islam was back then. As a result of Christianity, Western civilization evolved into a more peaceful, compassionate and meaningful human existence, for which, we all enjoy, and yes, even the un-evolved, vile, and delusional have benefited greatly. In fact, the lower rungs of society and human consciousness have benefited the most.

John S… Catholicism (ROMAN CATHOLIC)
Is not Christianity..!!
commented 2016-09-19 20:08:32 -0400
The crusades were not a holy war. The Catholic Church was the only democracy capable of opposition to the Turk invaders. It was what people wanted at the time to regain their freedom

John Siciliano"
“Drew, you gloss over all the atrocities by Christians because you want a holy war. Well I say enough of the zeal, and I do not want to be a part of your fantasies. "

After watching the barbarism of Islam I know understand completely and100% support the holy war. It appears we will need another crusade the way Islam is spreading across Europe.

What about Cortez and the Crusades and the blankets with smallpox. What about the Residential Schools headed by Christians.

Drew, you gloss over all the atrocities by Christians because you want a holy war. Well I say enough of the zeal, and I do not want to be a part of your fantasies.

This has nothing to do with everything being the US’s fault or being subjugated or conquered, but returning to a pre-9/11 mindset and having wars in rare situations and still defending the nation.

It is not complicated. Yet for you the only way forward is more war and more people’s children going overseas because you forget even the history from 2 decades ago.
