Leading Birther Jerome Corsi Now Refuses To Comment On Birtherism

When Donald Trump, after years of fueling the racist birther conspiracy theory, finally said today that President Obama was “born in the United States, period,” we wondered how Trump’s former allies in the birther movement would react.

It turns out that one leading birther is just refusing to talk about it, in an apparent effort to protect Trump from further criticism on the subject.

Jerome Corsi, the WorldNetDaily “reporter” who collaborated with Trump on his birther campaign and wrote two books on the subject, called in today to conservative radio host Rusty Humphries’ program but shut down when Humphries asked him about Trump’s latest comments.

“Rusty, you know, I really don’t even want to get into it anymore,” Corsi said, “and Donald Trump, he didn’t need my help to say what he wants to say, so let Donald on his own. I mean, I support Donald Trump, I’ve been writing about it and I’m much more interested in pursuing my book, ‘Partners in Crime,’ let Donald say whatever he wants to say. I’m not weighing in.”

Corsi was willing to comment, however, on Trump’s new false claim that it was actually Hillary Clinton who started the birther movement.

“Oh, we all know that,” Corsi said. “I mean, Hillary was the first birther. But, Randy [sic], I’m not getting into it, I’m done with the topic until Obama’s out of office, and we’ll find out eventually.”

Reporters who want to talk to him about “the birther,” he said, “can all go to you-know-where.”

“Right now, the left is trying to politicize the issue again,” he claimed. “If the left thinks they can hurt Donald Trump, they all want to talk about the birther. When it was an issue that could have hurt Obama, they all wanted to trash birthers.”

Rep. Dave Brat Claims ISIS Has Set Up Camp In Texas

In an interview last month with conservative radio host Rusty Humphries, Rep. Dave Brat said that the terrorist group ISIS has set up a base in Texas.

Apparently referring to a debunked report from a right-wing group about an ISIS camp near the Texas border, the Virginia Republican told Humphries, “In our country, now it looks like we have an ISIS center in Texas now that’s been reported last week.”

Brat also warned of “2,000 un-vetted people coming across the border from Syria, the home of ISIS.” The U.S. is planning to admit 2,000 refugees from Syria’s civil war this year, who will be screened by the State Department and the Department of Homeland Security.

“You can’t make up what a terrible problem this is,” he said, “and the political parties are just blind to it because the money, it causes blinders on their eyes. They can’t see reality clearly.”

Rep. Dave Brat: DREAM Act Is An Orwellian Plan To Undermine Pillars Of American Success

Rep. Dave Brat, the Virginia Republican who upset House Majority Leader Eric Cantor in a primary thanks in part to his promises to fight immigration reform, told conservative radio host Rusty Humphries last month that the DREAM Act represents “the cynical use of language that only George Orwell could come up with.”

Brat said that the DREAM ACT — which would enable undocumented immigrants who were brought to the U.S. as children to earn legal status if they meet certain requirements — would, along with church-state separation, threaten the “pillars” of American success.

The congressman contrasted the DREAM Act with the teachings of Martin Luther King, whom Brat said “had a true dream of a better day for all of us under the law.”

This, he explained, was because King “came out of the Judeo-Christian tradition,” which got him to talking about how the fact that “the faith doesn’t get discussed in school anymore,” that “there’s hardly any free markets left” and that “the rule of law is under threat, it’s called the ‘DREAM Act,’” are sending America in the “wrong direction.”

All of this led Brat to dispute church-state separation, arguing, “If you want a total separation of church and state, get rid of law and get rid of love, because that’s in the tradition.”

The ‘DREAM,’ unfortunately, is the cynical use of language that only George Orwell could come up with where logic is just flipped on its head, so you call something that’s illegal a ‘dream.’ So, when Martin Luther King said, ‘I have a dream,’ he had a true dream of a better day for all of us under the law.

He had a Ph.D. in theology — everybody forgets this — he came out of the Judeo-Christian tradition, which started way back when, but roughly with Moses, and in the U.S. Congress, when the speaker looks out, guess who the first face he sees staring him eyeball-to-eyeball? Moses. So the dream can never be, and nothing in the longer-term religious tradition, you can’t violate the law and have a sane culture over the long run. So you have to first of all have foundations that matter, a spiritual foundation or legal foundation, then we finally were fortunate enough to have a free-market foundation, and all of that made us the richest country on the face of the earth.

So now we’re threatening, all these pillars are under attack, the faith doesn’t get discussed in school anymore, the rule of law is under threat, it’s called the “DREAM Act,” free markets are in just free-fall, there’s hardly any free markets left. So we’re going the wrong direction.

Tea Party Rally Emcee: 'Sometimes You Have to Treat These Liberals Like Dogs'

Conservative radio host Rusty Humphries served as emcee of last night's Tea Party Unity Rally ahead of the Republican National Convention where he kicked things off by saying America does not need to move "forward," as MSNBC and President Obama and Mao Tse-tung like to say, but rather "upwards toward God."

And sometimes, Humphries told the audience, you just "have to treat these liberals like dogs; grab them by their collar [and yell] 'bad Democrat, no!'"
