We are not making up Joseph Farah's July 19 WorldNetDaily column:
Hey, does anyone know who the real Donald Trump is? Does anyone understand the game he is playing right now?
I think I have insight.
Don't listen to a thing he says.
He has no problem with Barack Obama.
In fact, I believe with absolute conviction that he is doing Obama's bidding.
"But that's crazy," you might say. "Trump was all over Obama about that birth certificate thingie. Wasn't he giving Obama fits over that?"
Sometimes things are not the way they seem.
In fact, in politics, I find, things are often not what they seem.
Here's my theory: Trump is a very successful businessman for whom there's never enough money. I don't think he has any interest in politics beyond what it can do for his enterprises. I actually think he may have been involved in shaking Obama down for something he wanted with that birth certificate charade. Because he got cold feet when Obama released the phony birth certificate, now Obama is shaking him down.
To get whatever it is he wants from Obama and company, he may be asked to throw the 2012 election into chaos by running as an independent.
Evidently the stakes are very high.
What are the possibilities?
Apparently Trump wants to build the world's tallest building in Chicago.
Getting things done in Chicago means payoffs.
Those payoffs don't always come just in the form of money.
What else would we expect from the king of the birthers?
