(CNN) – President Obama dismissed on Sunday the results of recent polls that show a significant portion of the population have doubts about his citizenship and believe he is a Muslim.

In an interview with NBC's Brian Williams on Sunday, Obama said "the facts are the facts, right?" But said "there is a mechanism, a network of misinformation that in a new media era can get churned out there constantly."

"I can't spend all my time with my birth certificate plastered on my forehead," the president added.

    In case people don't know, all major/minor media companies are either owned or controlled by the New World Order.

    There is no evidence that Barry Soweto aka Barack Obama was born in Hawaii. No original long form birth certificate has ever been offered by anyone connected with Obama. Officials in the Hawaiian government have stated the same.

    There is however, overwhelming confirmation by family and friends of the family in Kenya that he was born there.

    Also, his Social Security number begins with 042 which is issued to those
    born in Connecticut.

    And so the story continues to unravel about an illegal alien who was helped by the New World Order to ascend to the most powerful job in the world through means of deceit and treason.

    "The facts are the facts." This is the typical response of a shrewd attorney who avoids answering the real question. Why didn't Brian Williams have the sense to ask the obvious follow-up question: Mr. President, what are the facts, are you a Christian, what denomination?
