Posted on 12/01/2008 9:00:22 AM PST by Victory111
Why has every major news source in the United States almost totally blacked out all reference to the Hawaiian Obama birth certificate controversy?
In laymans terms the mainstream media may be afraid of showing up with egg on its face. Yet, the question about the allegedly fraudulent COLB (certificate of live birth) doesnt want to go away. It is more than simple curiosity that is driving the quest; it is a strong desire for the truth and the hope of avoiding a constitutional crisis that would be unparalleled in our entire history as a nation.

The fact that they are not doing so may indicate that they are not 100% sure that the issue is a non-starter.
Why doesn’t anyone see if he holds any kind of security clearance? The application for a clearance will show verification of date and place of birth.
Stark, staring FEAR.
*If* he skates into the WH in spite of all the evidence/doubts/questions surrounding his eligibility, he -will- remember who did or did not “bring it up”.
When the “Fairness Doctrine” returns, those who did are done for.
For the same reason they were silent on his “coke head” problem and went nuts over Bush’s drinking.
For those who have been under a rock for the last two years, the media is in the tank for HUSSEIN. Silence on this issue takes the evidence of conspiracy to a new level.
Leo’s case is different.
I’m not going to rehash his main point, plenty of relevant discussion out there.
The MSM, BTW, is now into the "natural-born Citizen" contoversy, albeit through the "back door," with the publication of the full page ad today in the Chicago Tribune.
Why was mainstream media silent on clintoon’s bimbos for 6 years not including the year on the campaign trail. All we heard about was how bad the economy was and not one word of clintoon’s womanizing. Why was that?
Mainstream media played the same game with osama hussein. Not one word before or after about the constitutionality question of whether osama should even be running, not anything about the 17 lawsuits in 12 states challenging his right to be prez, not one word about two SCOTUS justices accepting two lawsuits. Mainstream media is doing the American people more harm than good. MSM wants to influence the news not report it.
Retroactively? Wouldn't they be making law?
Keep the links updated on the link above.
Where are the modern-day Woodward and Bernsteins looking into this story? I would bet a month’s pay that if a Republican was elected to the Presidency with this same issue or questionable citizenship status, the press would be all over it.

Yep. And besids that, no ex post facto law or bill of attainer should be made, by order of the Constitution. (”After the fact” and a “law targeting one person” respectively.)
Can anyone find the chicago tribune full page add
(actual paper) and post it as a story?
Because they’re the ‘4/5 Media’ — 4th branch of government, 5th column.
“Elected Officials” (Senator, President etc.) according to the following article, are not required to obtain a security clearance to have access to classified information.
As one who held security clearances in both the military and in civilian life, I find it hard to believe but I’m not surprised.
The liberals do not foresee the calamity that an Obama presidency will bring, but it is quite easy to foresee the chaos and pain that removing him over a “technicality” will cause. If they had a genuine crystal ball to see the fruits of their labor 2-3 years down the road, their silence today would probably be regretted.
Then again, maybe they are all just a bunch of commies.
