The issue: Conspiracy theories that President Barack Obama isn't a natural-born citizen.
Our view: Such claims have been disproved, and those who tout them are in danger of provoking violent lunacy.
Obama was born Aug. 4, 1961, meaning he will turn 48 on Tuesday.
The couple [his parents] married on February 2, 1961, and Barack was born later that year.
With a father from Kenya and a mother from Kansas, President Obama was born in Hawaii on August 4, 1961.
Obama, who was a 7-year-old living in Hawaii when the astronauts flew to the moon and back, recalled sitting atop his grandfather's shoulders and gazing out into the Pacific Ocean as the Apollo command module splashed down roughly 900 miles to the south-west.
I should note, just personally, I grew up in Hawaii, as many of you know, and I still recall sitting on my grandfather's shoulders when those capsules would land in the middle of the Pacific and they'd get brought back and we'd go out and we'd pretend like they could see us as we were waving at folks coming home. And I remember waving American flags and my grandfather telling me that the Apollo mission was an example of how Americans can do anything they put their minds to.
The president recalled that as a boy living in Hawaii, he would perch on his grandfather's shoulders and watch the space capsules land in the Pacific Ocean.
Obama lived in Indonesia as a child, from 1967 to 1971, with his mother and stepfather and has acknowledged attending a Muslim school,
"I can't say enough about his contributions to our country. He is one of our most outstanding scholars, one of our most outstanding thinkers.
He has proven to be an outstanding friend, and somebody I have learned an immense amount fro, and for him to support me in this campaign, and being willing to come up here to Iowa is a testimony to his generosity...
Everyone please give Dr. Brzezinski another round of applause!"

Just don't trust any of the presidential candidates. Would you have voted for Clinton, the one who advocated the New World Order in her own words?
