Drake is outraged by the false claim and wants everyone to know that it was he and Alan Keyes, Obama's Republican opponent in the U.S. Senate race in 2004, who really started the campaign back in 2008 when they ran on the American Independent Party ticket.
As Drake recounted, he traveled to Washington, D.C., with Keyes to file the necessary paperwork to run for president and vice president and they both decided to attach copies of their birth certificates to the filing forms in an effort to force Obama to release his own birth certificate.
"We proceeded to go to court to demand that Barry Soetoro produce his birth certificate equally," Drake said, "because if Dr. Keyes was and I was, we felt it only fair that he produce his. Well, he refused for a long time and therein lies the beginning of the birther issue."
Notorious Harlem hate pastor James David Manning joined conservative radio host Alex Jones on Wednesday to discuss his theory that President Obama will try to stay in power beyond the end of his second term in office by releasing anti-American, Muslim inmates from prison, who will then serve as his personal Brownshirts.
“Black men that go to prison learn about Islam,” Manning said. “It’s very pervasive in the prisons.”
He claimed that criminal justice reform, which he said will empty the prisons of violent, America-hating criminals, and the remake of the miniseries “Roots,” which Jones criticized for “hyping” slavery even though “everybody’s done it,” will stoke anti-American sentiment and violence.
Manning suggested that the original “Roots” series “stirred the hearts of young men” and “sent men to prison in large numbers” in the 1970s, while Jones said that Obama wants to empty the prisons because he’s making room to imprison “the libertarians, the patriots and the Christians,” and make sure the “Viacom, CIA-run weapons system is activating the Beyoncés and all the rest of the folks to say, ‘Go out and kill the pigs.’”
He said that while “most Americans are locked and loaded” to deal with violent criminals released from prison, these felons will become Obama’s Brownshirt-like paramilitary. “I just can’t imagine Obama walking away from power,” Manning said.
This personal army and race war will give Obama the means and justification, respectively, to stay in office, he said.
“Why should he walk away and say, ‘Well, I had my eight years’?” Manning said. “He’s gonna try something, he’s going to. He’s already put it in the works. I mean, remember, Obama is CIA, understand that he is a compadre with Putin in Russia, he’s not gonna walk away from world power. He just isn’t going to do it. And anybody who thinks that he does — now, I’m all for Trump, hey, you know I am, I’m all in on Trump — but anybody who thinks that Obama’s gonna walk away from power, you’re not thinking. You just aren’t thinking.”
Far-right activists are still determined to find the truth about President Obama’s background, although it may not matter in the end since, after all, the gay rights movement is on the verge of ushering in the total destruction of America and possibly the world.
Before the GOP presidential frontrunner started winning the backing of Republican leaders, he assembled a team of ardent right-wing conspiracy theorists whose bigoted and bizarre beliefs once put them decidedly on the fringe of American politics.
Trump himself has spread a wide range of bizarre and bogus claims, winning state after state by questioning the facts about President Obama’s birthplace and religion, bashing immigrants as “killers and rapists,” parading discredited stories to demonize Muslim-Americans and, at one point, linking an opponent’s father to the Kennedy assassination.
As more “establishment” and “mainstream” Republicans declare their support for Trump, it is critical to remember the people whom Trump initially invited into his campaign: a range of pundits and preachers who have pushed racist, xenophobic and truly insane beliefs throughout their careers.
No endorser was out of bounds for Trump, whether it was a pastor who believes Starbucks injects semen from gay men into its lattes in order to spread Ebola or a radio host who thinks that alien creatures secretly run the government.
These activists have now also become some of Trump’s most outspoken defenders. And, in return, Trump has elevated their profiles by appearing on their radio programs, inviting them to share the stage with him and even praising them to national audiences.
Trump’s apparent victory in the Republican presidential primary gives these figures an unprecedented platform from which to spew their paranoia and bigotry. And it presents a strange turning point at which conspiracy theories that previously only lurked around the edges of political discourse are suddenly thrust to center stage.
The fact that the Republican Party is about to nominate a candidate who has embraced conspiracy theorist broadcaster Alex Jones is downright terrifying.
Trump’s top confidant, Roger Stone, a conservative operative who has called for Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders to be killed, has been on Jones’ show nearly every week during the campaign. The two are even working together on an effort to track down Republican delegates who don’t support Trump and hound them at their hotel rooms at the party convention in Cleveland.
Jones’ “news” program is a natural outlet for Trump, as pollafterpoll shows that Trump supporters disproportionately subscribe to shocking conspiracy theories, including ones championed by Jones and by the candidate himself.
It’s hard to describe how utterly bizarre Jones’ worldview is and how unbelievable it is that a major presidential candidate is promoting it.
Trump has become a regular guest on “The Savage Nation,” a right-wing radio program hosted by Michael Savage that has the fifth-largest radio audience in the country, often appearing on the show immediately before primary election days in order to drum up support from Savage’s listeners.
Oh, you're one of the sodomites. You should only get AIDS and die, you pig. How's that? Why don't you see if you can sue me, you pig. You got nothing better than to put me down, you piece of garbage. You have got nothing to do today — go eat a sausage and choke on it. Get trichinosis.
“Ann’s been amazing,” Trump said earlier this year. “I’m a big fan and you know that.”
Indeed, Trump’s extremist plan of mass deportation, constructing a massive border wall, impounding remittances, expelling refugees and curtailing legal immigration seems to resemble the proposals laid out in Coulter’s book, “Adios, America: The Left’s Plan to Turn Our Country into a Third World Hellhole,” in which she called on the government to adopt draconian policies to curb both lawful and unlawful immigration and refugee resettlement programs because, in her view, America has too many Latinos.
Coulter has urged GOP candidates to win elections by stoking anti-immigrant sentiment and “unapologetically opposing the transformation of America into a Third World country.”
Coulter claims that unless immigration is drastically curbed, parents will have to “get used to your little girls being raped” because “gang rape, child rape, elder rape, and murder rape are highly correlated with specific ethnic groups — ethnic groups we are bringing to America by the busload.”
Gallups and Trump share a passion for promotingbirther conspiracy theories and denouncing the Common Core academic standards, which Gallups warns will ensure that “our smallest children in pre-school” will learn about “the mechanics of homosexual sex.”
“[T]his dude is a Hollywood actor, his so-called wife is a Hollywood actor,” he said of two parents who lost children in the shooting.
A Trump spokeswoman said that the campaign “was not aware” of Gallups’ views, but the campaign still boasts of his endorsement on its website.
Unsurprisingly, Gallups has also speculated about whether Obama is the Antichrist, ultimately concluding that while the president is “an anti-Christ,” it is more likely that “he is a depiction of some of the characteristics of the anti-Christ who is to come.”
Trump was very proud to land the endorsement of Robert Jeffress, a prominent Southern Baptist preacher and Fox News contributor who has hitthetrail with the candidate at a number of events.
At one rally, Trump invited Jeffress to join him on stage as he decried the supposed persecution of Christians in America through the “War on Christmas” and lamented that he wouldn’t have been criticized if he had proposed a ban on Christians from entering the U.S., as he did with Muslims.
Jeffress made waves in the last presidential election when, after endorsing Rick Perry, he told Christians that they shouldn’t vote for Mitt Romney because of his Mormon faith, which wasn’t too surprising since he once blasted Mormonism as “a cult” from “the pit of hell.”
Update: Following the massacre at a gay nightclub in Orlando, James David Manning said he was outraged by Trump’s remarks expressing support for the LGBT community and has withdrawn his support. “Sodomy is more dangerous to America than radical Islam,” he said.
Accused Obama of murdering his “love child” outside the U.S. Capitol.
And that list barely scratches the surface of the many absurd and offensive things that Manning has actually said.
While Trump of course cannot be held responsible for all of the statements these individuals have made, he can and should be held responsible for embracing them and, at times, promoting their baseless conspiracy theories.
Jones, who only went so far as to say that Obama is “a precursor” to the Antichrist, insisted that Obama is a Muslim who seeks the deaths of Christians and black people and who “has flies always landing on him” and “is involved in every evil you can imagine.”
“He really is a demonic creature,” Jones said. “His wife is demonic. They don’t act or look like any black people I’ve ever known, or any people for that matter. They just are weird.”
Manning explained that “Obama is the son of Satan” and “the emissary for Satan himself” who is even worse than Adolf Hitler, Vladimir Lenin and Mao Zedong because while those leaders killed millions of people, Obama introduced “spiritual evil” to the world through same-sex marriage. He even said that the New World Order will be “led by Obama” as it establishes its control across the globe.
Jones added that Pope Francis is also “like a demon,” while Manning claimed the late musician Prince was also inspired by Satan.
Yesterday, conspiracy theorist broadcaster Alex Jones claimed that Beyoncé's new album, "Lemonade," was part of an attempt by the CIA to promote violence and attacks on the police, which would in turn allow the federal government to take control over local police forces.
“I’m pro-human so I say, black people, especially, stop killing your kids and get them in church, whatever, take them away from Beyoncé, who wants to eat their brain with the CIA, literally,” Jones said, adding: “Obama literally is the killer of black people and they love him.”
Manning, who said he gave Jones’ statements “three-and-a-half Boom Shakalakas,” said “Beyoncé is going to inspire children all across every spectrum to act in a violent way” while, at the same time, literal demons are “promoting” homosexuality “in our schools and in our institutions.”
Jones said that he even saw with his own eyes “literal, devil-worshiping communists” demonstrating in favor of abortion rights turn into satanic lizards: “The black people have a green tone, the white people have a green tone, they are turning into lizards or something.”
The InfoWars commentator said that musicians like Beyoncé and Kesha are funded by nefarious actors “to be anti-family, anti-police.”
Beyoncé’s new music videos, Jones said, “are creating a Jezebel spirit injected into little girls to just be hateful and crazy and unhappy and make sure they die alone.”
While he may be losing his church, anti-gay pastor James David Manning still found time to chat with Alex Jones yesterday, and the two agreed that President Obama is a spiritually evil man who, according to Jones, is “almost like a vampire” and “will never been seen with a cross around him.” Never. Ever.
Manning said that if he were to ever encounter Obama, he would “flash him with my cross.”
“Well, I’ve talked to people about how the flies are always landing on him,” Jones said, claiming that “prominent” people have told him that “there’s something really evil about Obama when you’re in his presence.”
Right-wing outlets such as “Trunews” and “WorldNetDaily” have also pointed to the fact that a fly once landed on Obama, an occurrence that only happens to evil people, as proof that Obama is demonic.
