In a remarkable radio interview with Steve Malzberg on December 30, 2010, Jeff Kuhner of the Washington Times says that people around the White House, Democratic circles, and the liberal media — including senior top editors — all know there’s something there about Obama’s birth eligibility but are afraid to pursue the matter.
Jeffrey Kuhner is a columnist, writer, and radio host on WTNT in Washington, DC. He is a regular contributor to the commentary pages of The Washington Times, where he writes a weekly column, and has written for Human Events, National Review Online and Investor’s Business Daily.
What Kuhner had to say is so important that I transcribed the relevant portions of the interview. The topic of Obama’s birth certificate begins at the 3:52 mark in the audio. Here’s the gist of what he said:
“They” know there’s a problem: Beginning at the 5:18 mark, Kuhner says: “I’m choosing my words now very carefully because I don’t want to burn my sources. People around the White House and especially in Democratic circles, in private at a cocktail party, at a restaurant, will tell you ‘Where there’s smoke, there’s fire.’ They don’t know what it is. Even some liberal members of the media I’ve spoken to off the record have said, ‘Jeff, we don’t want to touch this story because we know there’s something there. We don’t know what: We don’t know if it’s going to reveal his religion that was given to him by his father or stepfather; we don’t know if it’s records that will eventually come out about his travels to Pakistan when he was a student at a university; we don’t know if he applied for foreign aid as a foreign student. We don’t know exactly what it is, but the reluctance of the White House on not just his birth certificate, but his health records, school records. They are hiding something, there’s no question about it.’ And the only question is how bad the damage is going to be. If, and I emphasize if, it turns out that he was not born in the United States, we have a legal, constitutional and political crisis without precedent in this nation.”
Controversy is gaining traction: Beginning at the 8:21 mark, Kuhner says, “This controvesy is not going away. It is gaining traction. It is gaining momentum in the courts.”
Kuhner asks the question on all our minds — why won’t the media do the eligibility story?: Beginning at the 8:42 mark, Kuhner says, “This is a very key point. What many members of the liberal media have been confiding in me. I ask them, ‘Look, this is a bombshell of a story. It’d be like a Watergate. It’ll make your name! All you’d have to do is break the story. I mean you’d look at a Pulitzer prize for the rest of your life, you’d be wealthy beyond imagination, all the fame and glory a journalist can ever want!'”
Media are afraid of a civil war: “They [liberal media] say, ‘Jeff, you don’t understand. The implications if this story turns out to be true, we fear it could be a civil war within America.’ This is what they’re telling me — that you’re going to have African-Americans so embittered, remaining loyal to the president; so many liberals so embittered, loyal to the president. But so many people in the country feeling that it’s a serious constitutional breach — that everything he has passed — because he’s unconstitutional and doesn’t have the right, the legal authority — everything he has passed is therefore illegal and unconstitutional. It would literally be the worst constitutional crisis that ever gripped this country. So they don’t want to touch this.”
Some other things Kuhner said in the interview:
- Obama had never been and is not a Christian. The church he attended for some 20 years in Chicago (black racist Rev. Wright’s) is a black liberation theology church. There’s no Christ in that church.
- New Hawaii Governor Neil Abercrombie is lying when he recently claimed to have known Obama’s parents and seen Obama as a baby in Honolulu. Abercrombie would have to be 20 years old at the time. Abercrombie is “paying back” for some favor Obama had done for him.
- MSNBC’s Chris Matthews is getting tired of “carrying the ball” for Obama. That is why even Matthews is now calling on Obama to release his birth certificate.
