Clinton Didn't Fire Up The Birther Movement--Clinton's Staffer Did

Powerlineblog, known for outing the mainstream media ever since Rathergate, just keeps on doing what they do best:
[Trump] is visiting African-American precincts and asking for votes with lines like this one: It used to be they made cars in Flint, and you couldn’t drink the water in Mexico. Now they make cars in Mexico, and you can’t drink the water in Flint. That scares the daylights out of the Democrats, so what did they do? Suddenly, reporters on the campaign trail are desperate to talk about birtherism.

Why? Has something happened to make President Obama’s birthplace a campaign issue? No. They just want to change the subject. I wrote earlier today about how Trump snookered the campaign press corps into giving him free television time for endorsements by former military officers, when they hoped he would give a press conference on President Obama’s birthplace.

But that didn’t stop the press: the story was all about birtherism.
Actually, the first person to claim that Barack Obama was born overseas was Barack Obama. His own literary biography said, for, as I recall, 19 years, that he was born in Kenya.

But it appears to be true that later claims about Obama being ineligible for the presidency began with the Clinton campaign, contrary to the AP’s assertion. Clinton’s 2008 campaign manager, Patti Doyle, admitted today what has been long reported: that a “rogue” Clinton staffer spread the rumor during the 2008 primary campaign. The AP’s claim that there is “no evidence” of involvement by the Clinton campaign is simply false. [UPDATE: The appalling Sid Blumenthal, one of Hillary’s closest confidantes, was spreading the Kenya rumor too.]

Hillary Clinton’s 2008 campaign manager Patti Solis Doyle tweeted Ari Fleischer, George W. Bush’s former spokesman:
“@AriFleischer I fired the rouge [sic] [who sent the birther email] & I called [Mr. Obama’s campaign manager] @davidplouffe to apologize 4 said rouge.”

Ms. Doyle appeared about an hour later on CNN with Wolf Blitzer to address the issue once again. She denied that Hillary Clinton had started the birther theory — then admitted that someone in the Clinton campaign had, in fact, been involved.

“There was a volunteer coordinator, I believe, in late 2007, I believe, in December, one of our volunteer coordinators in one of the counties in Iowa — I don’t recall whether they were an actual paid staffer, but they did forward an email that promoted the conspiracy,” Ms. Doyle said.

And we all know how emails live forever (even Hillary's deleted ones) and get sent 'round the world, true or not, right?

Jason Miller, a senior [Trump] communications adviser, said in a statement: “Not only was a Clinton campaign worker blamed and fired over the activity, we have now been informed that Secretary Clinton was aware of what was going on, with Clinton’s campaign manager even apologizing to Obama’s campaign manager.”

Mr. Miller noted this still doesn’t explain why Mrs. Clinton didn’t fire her chief strategist Mark Penn, who wrote a memo in March 2007 to paint Mr. Obama as fundamentally foreign.

"Alt-left" website Politico states arrogantly that only "some Clinton supporters circulated rumors about Obama’s citizenship, [that] the campaign and Clinton herself never trafficked in it." Funny: Sid Blumenthal, one of Hillary's closest friends and confidantes, and Mark Penn, Clinton's chief strategist at the time, were just "some supporters"?

Penn's memo includes these lines:

[Obama's] roots to basic American values and culture are at best limited...How could we give some life to this contrast [between Obama and Hillary] without turning negative: Every speech should contain the line that you [Hillary] were born in the middle of America...Let's explicitly 'own' American in our programs, the speeches and the values. He doesn't."
See how stupid the Alt-Left media and Hillary think you are? They think you can't find and read the truth they want to cover up, for yourself.

Trump was very wrong in promoting the birther conspiracy. Waaayyy wrong. "Huuuge" negative for him. But he backed down from it, awhile ago actually, and publicly just disavowed it. Hillary doesn't usually get quoted because she holds the press at 4-football-fields-length and has lately had her surrogates do most of her talking for her.

Yes, they fired that coordinator in Iowa in 2008. But the damage had been done.

Some are claiming that "every fact-checker" has found all this untrue. Guess they don't read Powerline or believe Clinton’s 2008 campaign manager, Patti Doyle. Alt-left Politico's crowing it was actually some unknown guy in Illinois who started it all, in 2004, before any of us even knew who Obama was. That got so much traction (NOT). We never heard about it or that guy, till now. I mean, really? Think how long and how far Politico had to dig to find this guy as their alt-scapegoat. They had to, to defend Hillary, because when an email comes out from a campaign coordinator, no matter how low on the ladder, the world wonders, "They must really know something. They're inside the campaign. They must have been told something from up high."

Even if it might not be true, and in this case wasn't true, that is what people will think. And that is what Hillary did nothing at the time to stop people from thinking.

If you have even the slightest mistrust of Hillary, do you doubt for a second that she would allow such false dirt to be spread about her 2008 opponent, the first anyone to dare to not only stand up and in her way of winning her coveted prize but to actually snatch it away from her when she was about to be crowned? You can google the routine temper tantrums and tirades of Hillary and read all about that for yourselves. She had to have been spitting nails for months, and would have crucified Obama if she could have, the way she said she'd crucify Gennifer Flowers.

Hillary holds no quarter for anyone standing in her way, and Obama was the only one ever to succeed at that. Think about that a moment. The only reason she's promising to uphold his "policies" is because she'll lose the black American vote without his stumping fake-enthusastically for her. And do you actually believe for a nanosecond that Obama believes that she will be a better President than himself? I got swampland in Florida for you to buy.

It's a devil's bargain they've made:

HRC: You help me win the election and I won't erase your "legacy" from the face of the earth.
BHO: I'll help you win the black vote, the all-minorities vote, and you and Bill will call off your "dogs" against me forever and keep in place everything I've done.
Does it matter who initiated that conversation? But you know it happened. They abhor each other. They both cottoned to the old adage, something I've never been able to do: "Keep your friends close, but keep your enemies closer."

Don't let the optics fool you. They're still enemies.

"I would now like to say a special word to women who have had an abortion...[many are] aware of the many factors which may have influenced your decision, and [do] not doubt that it was a painful and even shattering decision. The wound in your heart may not yet have healed. Certainly what happened was and remains terribly wrong. But do not give in to discouragement and do not lose hope. Try rather to understand what happened and face it honestly. If you have not already done so, give yourselves over with humility and trust to repentance. The Father of mercies is ready to give you his forgiveness and his peace...You will come to understand that nothing is definitively lost and you will also be able to ask forgiveness from your child..."

The writings expressed herein are protected expression by virtue of the First Amendment of the United States of America and by the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, in particular Articles 18 and 19, signed by the U.S.A. in 1948:

1) The First Amendment: "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances."

"The Free Exercise Clause reserves the right of American citizens to accept any religious belief and engage in religious rituals. The wording in the free-exercise clauses of state constitutions that religious “[o]pinion, expression of opinion, and practice were all expressly protected” by the Free Exercise Clause.[1] The clause protects not just religious beliefs but actions made on behalf of those beliefs. More importantly, the wording of state constitutions suggest that “free exercise envisions religiously compelled exemptions from at least some generally applicable laws.”[2] The Free Exercise Clause not only protects religious belief and expression; it also seems to allow for violation of laws, as long as that violation is made for religious reasons."

2) Article 18 of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights, signed by the U.S.A. in 1948, states: "Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion; this right includes freedom to change his religion or belief, and freedom, either alone or in community with others and in public or private, to manifest his religion or belief in teaching, practice, worship and observance."

3) Article 19 of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights: "Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers."
