Charles C. Johnson is a former Breitbart journalist and founder of GotNews.com. On Saturday Night he launched into a nearly two-hour Twitter rant that is one for the ages.
Johnson is a highly circulated, sometimes controversial, conservative columnist and author. He does not like to be associated with “birthers.” Orly Taitz has claimed that Johnson was hired by Breitbart to disprove “birther” claims and prove that Barack Obama was eligible to be president. As a fan of the late Andrew Breitbart, and one who does not believe in Obama’s eligibility, I would certainly hope that is not entirely true.
Charles Johnson does believe that Barack Obama was born in Hawaii and is eligible to be president. Oddly, however, he does not believe that Barack Obama’s birth certificate is real, calls the family pictures fake, and even questions the paternity of Obama’s children.
On Valentine’s evening Johnson launched into an epic, nearly two-hour rant, on Twitter, that I will post, in part, below.
The late Joan Rivers would have said it is because Michelle Obama is a man. 🙂
Now that’s some interesting stuff. Tell us more Charles.
Obviously Scott Walker has not learned to play nice with the establishment elites. Good question.
Yes sir we are.
One of the things “birthers” dislike about journalists is that they won’t do their jobs. If Obama were properly vetted in the first place the “birthers” would have no legitimate reason to exist.
I can appreciate that. We know what happened to your former employer. But, with all due respect, you might have just crossed a line you did not want to cross if death scares you.
If you can prove it Bill Ayers will split the royalties with you.
Again, if you are worried about those death threats you might have gone too far already. I hope that someone else has this information because if you have anything of value they might not want that information to see the light of day. Just sayin’.
Very interesting indeed.
Spit it out. Why is it fake?
With all due respect, not all “birthers” are focused on the Kenya thing. Where Obama was born is not the only issue.
They are all one big happy family. The conservatives are complicit.
This is where we disagree. Even if Barack Obama were born in Hawaii that does not automatically make him eligible to be president. Many believe that the true definition of “natural born citizen” is to be born of two citizen parents. Charles Johnson may be a really good journalist but he is not a constitutional attorney.
I can not imagine what might have set Charles C. Johnson off, on Valentine’s Day of all days, to launch into such an epic rant, but please keep it coming. I hope Mr. Johnson is not holding information back in order to sell his next book. If he truly knows the Obama story then America deserves to hear it.
For those who do not know who Johnson is, I think a review of his bio is in order:

Hopefully he will follow up with some clarifications of many of these claims.
America wants and deserves the truth.
