So Obama wasn't born on U.S. soil. Looks like Trump and Hillary were both right. (That's rare!)
He could be foreign born and adopted by his "Parents" as we know them to be.
Biological Father: Mohammed Subuh Sumohadiwojojos
Biological Mother: unknown
Adopted under Hawaiian law in early 1960s by:
Ann Dunham Obama and Barack H Obama (Sr)
Name change and birth certificate and announcements and hospital records arranged by court order and are sealed records.
Adopted children in early 1960s Hawaii could be granted Citizenship by court order (records sealed).
This is what happened.

Thighland -- is that where you get chicken-pad thighs? Sounds yummy.
But seriously it must be true. It's on YouTube after all, and any high-school student with an American (=nonexistent) high school education could have done it.
So it must be true since everyone knows that white guys in masks with a high-school education or worse claiming to know the truth can't be liars, can they?
I love this country, but I fear there is too much flouride in the water -- and maybe too little of anything else.

Ironic isn’t it? Here we have conservatives eating this all up with stars, flags, and Birther BS but they’re also the same ones who cry about fake news and anonymous sources used by the WaPo/NYT.
Projection at its finest.

My first thought when I read this was the same as others' first thought: did Obama own any property in Thailand? It came to my mind, because of a Thai professor I had in college. I knew the man back in the 80s when I started my college career and he was a young, new professor, and again when I finished my computer degree and he was considering retiring. We talked quite a bit after class.
He held a green card, and actually showed it to me one day when we were talking (I had never seen one and wanted to know what it looked like). I asked him why he hadn't just gone for US citizenship and he responded that if he became a US citizen he would have to sell his family property in Thailand.
That's right. Thailand has very strict requirements for real estate. In essence, foreigners cannot own land in Thailand. Well, except for this:
Ownership of land is also not open to foreign companies, including Amity treaty (US) companies, BVI or Hong-Kong limited companies or any other foreign juristic entity. These companies may, similar to foreign individuals, have a minority interest in a Thai company, but may also NOT use nominee structured holding companies for land ownership.
Foreign corporations with substantial investments benefiting the Thai economy may have special privileges and exemptions for land ownership granted for the duration of their business in Thailand under:
- Section 27 of the Investment Promotion Act
- Section 44 of the Industrial Estate Authority of Thailand Act
- Section 65 of the Petroleum Act
A Google search turned up this article on the story which contains this passage:
According to our source, the Trump administration learned that Obama, by proxy, owned a mansion and a 400-acre estate on the outskirts of the city of Si Sa Ket, approximately 500 km from Bangkok. On paper, the land was owned by the allegedly defunct Solyndra Corporation, a startup solar company to which Obama gave 2.2 billion taxpayer dollars in 2009. Shortly thereafter, Solyndra declared bankruptcy, and the money vanished. Despite apparent poverty, Solyndra maintained real estate holdings valued at over 800 million dollars in a half-dozen Southeast Asian countries.
(I'm also not sure this is a reliable source. It raises some red flags for me, but it was all I could find.)
Now, it's not unusual for a defunct company to maintain some minor business operations long after it is defunct. I do this with one company using my old, bankrupt business name (with their full knowledge and compliance, of course). Of course, this is only possible if the defunct business is able to pay off its debts at closing, which mine did but Solyndra did not. So if true, the fact that real estate was/is owned by Solyndra after their bankruptcy is fraud and illegal in itself. But even more interesting is the kind of hoops that must be jumped through in order to even be able to claim ownership of property with the Thai government.
In other words, it is possible that Obama was using a defunct Solyndra (perhaps Solyndra LLC, which seems to have received a number of assets from Solyndra, Inc. at the time of bankruptcy) as a proxy to cover land ownership in Thailand with special permission from the Thai government, but it is highly unlikely. Add to that the fact that Delta Force, as mentioned, absolutely does NOT grant interviews or give out information on operations except to the President or their commanders, and I am going to go out on a very sturdy-looking limb and call this BS.
As much as I would like to see Obama sitting in a courtroom facing charges, truth is truth, and there appears to be none here.

The OP really cracks me up.
The right are willing to entertain the possibility of this being true but the second anyone so much as uses the words Trump and Russia in the same sentence they freak out and start ranting about how everything is fake news.
If only some members could take a few moments to look in the mirror

I don't know, sounds like a bold statement to make.
I mean linking an ex president to human trafficing is almost unbelievable, but in this world today people are capable of very evil things. If real would this cause the leftists to totally rethink their ideology? Or would it just get denied?
