Obama Eligibility Issue Gathering Steam

Thank you, Joseph Farah and World Net Daily, for your tireless efforts to inform Americans on this important issue! History will remember you.

We’re making progress on birth certificate
By Joseph Farah – WorldNetDaily – January 6, 2011
Have you noticed how much better informed the major news media have become about the missing birth certificate since Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie entered the picture?

It wasn’t that long ago that most of the TV talking heads and alleged news reporters were telling the American people that Barack Obama had released his birth certificate. They seemed incapable of comprehending the difference between the digital short-form certification of live birth offered up by the Obama campaign in 2008 and a standard, long-form birth certificate we’re all familiar with.
How many of you recall Bill O’Reilly and Chris Matthews waiving copies of the certification of live birth in front of the camera, telling the American people they had the actual birth certificate?
How many times do you recall them viciously attacking those who persisted in demanding the absolute minimal documentation needed to ensure Obama was indeed constitutionally eligible to serve as president – without ever giving any of those conscientious, principled, rational advocates of the rule of law and openness in government the opportunity to answer their ad hominem insults?
On the edge of a constitutional crisis … learn the facts in WND’s comprehensive “Obama Eligibility Primer”
How many times have you heard them characterize “birthers” as a fringe group of crackpots and conspiracy nuts?
Now, all of a sudden, as polls continue to show Americans increasingly skeptical about Obama’s birth narrative despite the media’s stonewalling and obfuscating, along comes the new socialist governor of Hawaii who admits the possibility that the release of some actual evidence might indeed quell what is turning into widespread public distrust of both the government and what Rush Limbaugh astutely calls “the state-sponsored media.”
He says he would like to release the birth certificate – though I doubt he ever will.
But that leaves O’Reilly, Matthews and the rest of the Big Media in a dilemma. After all, they have been pretending for years that the birth certificate has already been released.
It didn’t take Matthews long to do a 180.
Hey, if the Democratic governor of Hawaii wants the birth certificate released, then he’s for it, too. He even bullied two certifiably leftist pundits on his panel to capitulate to his demand as well.
O’Reilly is sure to follow suit if he hasn’t already.
Looks like the birth certificate issue is reaching critical mass.
These media types are now using Abercrombie as a way to extricate themselves from all their foolishness and irresponsibility on this story from the beginning.
The truth is Obama should never have been able to assume office without establishing his constitutional eligibility. The system failed the American people and the rule of law. The media “watchdogs” weren’t just AWOL. They were attacking those actually serving as vigilant citizen watchdogs of the Constitution and the people’s business.
I expect politicians to act like politicians. I expect them to protect their secrets as best they can. I expect them to get away with anything they can get away with.
But, as someone who has spent 30 years in the news business, I have never been more ashamed of my industry than I have been over the last two years in their mindless and shameless demagoguery over Obama’s eligibility problem.
If they had been paid shills for Obama they could not have been more reckless and mean-spirited and less truthful and honest.
That goes for Bill O’Reilly and Chris Matthews and the New York Times and the Los Angeles Times and the Washington Post and the Associated Press – and literally thousands of other news agencies and so-called “journalists.” They missed one of the biggest stories in American history and set about covering up their own incompetence.

Anyway, that’s beginning to change.
They now admit what was obvious to the vast majority of Americans for some time – that Obama has indeed been concealing his birth certificate. They admit he should be able to defuse this whole controversy with one phone call. They admit they are puzzled as to why he won’t do that.
Guess what, fellas – that’s just what those you have been vilifying have been saying for the last two years. That’s all they’ve been saying. And, a few of us in the media, most of them right here at this news agency, have actually been gathering evidence that thoroughly and unequivocally undermines Obama’s official birth narrative.
Quietly, and without fanfare, the WND team kept this story alive – just as I promised I would. Still, none of these media elitists has bothered to scratch beneath the surface of this story to comprehend the magnitude of deceit that went into Obama’s elevation to what may well be an illegitimate presidency.
I tell you, it’s not just Obama who is going to pay a price in history for this scandal. All those who aided and abetted him in the media are going down, too.
Now that this story shows no signs of going away, I think they’re beginning to realize what they missed.

Notice to Boehner: We Birthers Will Never Give Up

 

We Obama truth-seekers, whom the MSM deride as “birthers,” are patriots who love and respect the Constitution because it is not just our founding document but the highest law of the land. We fully know how thin and fragile the veneer of civilization is which alone separates us from the maw of chaos and the abyss. It is the rule of law — not of man — that holds civil order and civilization itself together.
To that end, we Obama truth-seekers hold sacred the Constitution’s stipulation of the necessary qualifications for the office of the presidency. Article II, Section 1 says: 

No person except a natural born citizen, or a citizen of the United States, at the time of the adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the office of President; neither shall any person be eligible to that office who shall not have attained to the age of thirty-five years, and been fourteen years a resident within the United States.

But the person variously named Barack Barry Hussein Steven Dunham Soetoro Obama has not produced the necessary documentation certifying he is a Natural Born Citizen (NBC). Even leaving aside the matter of his birth place, the very fact that when Obama was born in 1961, his biological father, Barack Obama Sr., was not a U.S. citizen but a British citizen (Kenya being a British colony at the time), would disqualify him. For there is a clear, concise definition of the term “Natural Born Citizen” in Vattel’s Law of Nations which was the principal legal reference book used by the Founding Fathers in writing the Constitution (h/t fellow Free Speech!):

“The natural-born citizens, are those born in the country, of parents who are citizens…it is necessary that a person be born of a father who is a citizen; for, if he is born there of a foreigner, it will be only the place of his birth, and not his country.”

From the beginning — the 2008 presidential year — World Net Daily has waged a tireless battle to inform us about the eligibility issue and sponsoring public campaigns of awareness, including billboards. In that battle, World Net Daily was almost all alone. The liberal MSM ignored, suppressed and mocked us. Even more reprehensible are the news media that are supposed to be “on our side” — FoxNews and its talking heads Bill O’Reilly and Glenn Beck (who called birthers “dumb”) — who also ignored and dismissed us.
Finally, the eligibility question is getting steam despite the concerted media mockery and suppression. Recently, Jeff Kuhner of the Washington Times said 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. Yesterday, a very brave woman single-handedly brought the eligibility question to the attention of the American people when she interrupted the House reading of the Constitution by yelling “Except Obama!” at precisely the point when Rep. Frank Perone was reading Article II, Section I that presidents must be naturally born U.S. citizens in order to be eligible for that office.
The woman, Theresa Cao, 48, was removed from the House by Capitol police, arrested and charged with unlawful conduct and disrupting Congress. She is now released from police custody.
Thank you, Theresa! Chroniclers of our time will record your courage and the name Theresa Cao will forever be remembered.
What a contrast this brave woman is from the spineless newly elected House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio). The Hill reports that in an interview on NBC Nightly News yesterday after “the incident,” Boehner reacted to the outburst and said he believed Obama is a U.S. citizen:

“The state of Hawaii has said that President Obama was born there. That’s good enough for me.”

Boehner is covering his and his fellow political class’s asses. None other than the Congressional Research Office has admitted that Congress failed to vett Obama’s presidential candidacy because no law requires them to do so, conveniently forgetting that the Constitution itself is the highest law of the land. (See also “Obama Eligibility Is Now a Conspiracy“)
Shame on you, Congressman Boehner! It may be “good enough” for you, but it sure ain’t “good enough” for us, the American people!
You keep up your pusillanimous spinelessness and We the People will get rid of you, too.
Count on it.

Dems & Media Fear Civil War From Obama Eligibility


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:

Economy Slows; No Recovery


I awoke early this morning to the big three TV networks positively giddy with ill-concealed partisan glee about Obama’s purported “legislative triumphs,” putting his signature to the START treaty and the repeal of the military’s Don’t Ask Don’t Tell policy.
True to their self-inflicted slavish nature, the big MSM are not reporting on just-released government data indicating the U.S. economy has slowed down.
There is no recovery.
In an article for the Reno Gazette-Journal on Dec 22, 2010,Financial status barely budges for Nevadans in 3Q of 2010,” Kara Lapoint reports that the latest U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis of state personal income data paints a bleak picture of America’s economy:

Nationwide, the report estimates state personal income growth slowed to an average 0.7% in the third quarter of the year, down from 1.4% in the second quarter.
The slowdown stretched across the U.S., with 41 states demonstrating decelerating growth and three states remaining unchanged. Just six states showed accelerating personal income growth in the third quarter: Hawaii, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, South Dakota and Utah.
Nationally, all three major sources of personal income grew more slowly in the third quarter than the second.
Growth of the net earnings of workers slowed on average to 0.8%, from 1.5% in the second quarter. Property income fell on average 0.4%, after rising 0.4% the previous quarter. And the growth of transfer receipts (such as social security benefits received by retirees and benefits received by the unemployed) slowed to 1.3% in the third quarter from 1.8% in the second….
State and local government earnings fell in all but eight states, with the largest declines in government earnings seen in New Jersey and Washington.

The report states the slowdown in earnings growth reflects the net effect of declines in some industries, such as construction, real estate, government, and finance.
Construction earnings declined in most states in the third quarter, with the largest effects on personal income growth in Nevada (-0.22% points) and Hawaii (-0.19% points). Real estate earnings in every state also fell, continuing the downward trend of the last five years.
Only in faming and mining were earnings growth relatively strong nationally in the third quarter. Mining earnings (including earnings in oil and gas) made a significant contribution to personal income growth in Wyoming, Texas, and West Virginia.
