Donald Trump recently endorsed Mitt Romney, which came as a shock to many conservatives; Romney essentially is as liberal as Obama, but without the endless radical socialist and communist connections. However, to those who have followed World Net Daily, Jerome Corsi, and specifically Mr. Corsi’s book “Where’s the Birth Certificate?”, this came as no surprise.
As we all remember, in April of last year, Trump was dancing around the news talk circuit like a peacock making noise about whether Obama had really been born in Hawaii, demanding that Obama release his long-form birth certificate. Meanwhile, he had been in contact with Jerome Corsi regarding his soon-to-be-released book, at one point requesting and obtaining from Corsi an advance copy. Additionally, before Corsi’s book was even released, it made the New York Times bestseller list.
As the media frenzy regarding Obama’s long-form birth certificate reached a fever pitch, on April 27, Obama released not the original certificate, but an electronic version of it. Subsequently, Trump famously exited one of his Trump helicopters and announced to the world that he “was proud” of himself for getting Obama to release his birth certificate.
It is obvious to many that the media frenzy that Trump created around the birth certificate was simply an extension of his hit show Celebrity Apprentice in more ways than one. Celebrity Apprentice is run on the NBC network, which has lavishly praised Obama from the 2008 primary on. NBC is owned by General Electric, which is a huge Obama donor and famously, under Obama, filed a 57,000 page return for 2010 on $14B in profits (and subsequently paid no taxes.) Trump also contributed $50,000 to former Obama Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel’s Chicago mayoral campaign; some speculate that he did so because Emanuel is pushing for casinos in Chicago, which will benefit Trump Industries. Further, Trump contributed to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s campaign against Tea Party favorite Sharron Angle. No, it should be crystal clear by now that Trump is no friend to conservatives. And with both the mainstream media and the Republican establishment calling Romney the “inevitable” Republican candidate, as they say, the fix is in.
