Anti-Obama Navy SEAL leader: I’m a Birther

President Barack Obama is a Socialist, was raised by communists, and wasn't born in the United States, according to the former Navy SEAL who founded the group Special Operations Speaks (SOS), which aims to portray Obama as anti-military in this election season.

That's the teaser thrown out there in an attempt to discredit a different group of former Navy SEALS: the Special Operations OPSEC Education Fund - their video Dishonorable Disclosures went viral earlier this week.

The problem here is that one of these things is not the same as the other:

I am a Special Operations guy - twenty years in US Army Special Forces, and along the way I worked very closely with SEALs, Air Forces Special Tactics and ParaRescue, and USMC Force Recon (before MARSOC was stood up). We are a VERY diverse crowd, and we don't vote as a block. Yes, the majority of us are Conservatives, it takes all types to make an Army and yes, there are Liberals and even card-carrying Democrats amongst us. Albeit, not many.

This attempted disinformation piece posted by Josh Rogin and carried in Huffington Post and Foreign Policy damage control piece states:

Earlier this week, a different group of former Navy SEALS calling themselves the Special Operations OPSEC Education Fund rolled out its campaign to criticize Obama for leaking national security information and taking what it believes as undue credit for the killing of Osama bin Laden. That group claims to be non-political.

But the founder of SOS a similar group with the same mission and the same tactics, says he has no problem admitting that he is against Obama's politics, personality, and believes that America's current president is lying about his origins.

Josh Rogin

This guy probably considers himself a journalist; but you know me, I call it the way I see it: Josh Rogin is basically a conduit and foil for the Obama campaign. Josh Rogin has established himself as a Democratic Party Operative; he is carrying their water, and looking at places he posts I'm not surprised: CNN, MSNBC, and of course the Huffington Post.

This is what journalism is these days. The amusing irony of it all is the people who work at those places will tell you all night and all day; "Rush Limbaugh is not a journalist," they like to repeat this mantra early and often. Whatever - and they consider us the mind-numbed robots. Yeah, right.

FOR THE RECORD DEPT: I am not a Birther

I've said it before: I do not believe that Barack Obama was born outside of this country. The concept that a pregnant woman in her third trimester would embark upon an epic journey that in the early 1960s involved over twenty-four hours and overnight, in-transit stops in completely foreign cities strains the imagination.

My take on it is that Obama's mother Stanley Ann Dunham - an obvious early anti-establishment type - was such a granolahead that she didn't bother to go to the hospital to have the baby; little Barry was born on the living room floor. And then, being the sociology freak that she was, she didn't bother registering the birth. No problem, happens all the time out there in the wilderness.

Moving forward; Stanley marries Lolo Soetoro and it's time to go over to Indonesia. Slight problem; no birth certificate means little Barry can't get a passport. No problem, Lolo calls up his buddies at the Indonesian consulate in Honolulu and they cut him an Indonesian passport.

This is NOT a conspiracy theory, it is a THEORY and it is absolutely believable. I grew up as an expat kid in Southeast Asia and situations like this were common amongst the expat community. At one point in the 1970s, between my parents and my three brothers we legally held passports of four different nations; Australia, the United Kingdom, the United States and Singapore.

My theory also makes sense out of how Obama gained entry into and could afford to attend all those high-end Ivy League schools: foreign student programs, grants and loans. This goes a long way toward explaining why Obama absolutely refuses to release his college records.

For the record I have always said it doesn't matter whether Obama was born in Hawaii, Africa, or on the moon - he was sworn in by the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court and as such he is legally President of the United States . . .

Until November, that is . . . heh, heh . . .
