WASHINGTON WND Editor and Chief Executive Officer Joseph Farah today publicly called on Newsweek Editor Jon Meacham for a retraction of a statement in the magazine falsely claiming Farah is a proponent of a "conspiracy theory" that Barack Obama was not born in the United States.
"It's just a bald-faced lie and misrepresentation of anything and everything I have written and said about the eligibility issue," Farah said.

Could this be the Birth Certificate submitted by Obama's Grandmother?

I am beginning to wonder if suing Factcheck.org might be a better idea. Forcing them to prove that FactCheck.org staffers have now seen, touched, examined and photographed the original birth certificate.
Yes, i have been thinking same. A plan to rightfully discredit the 2nd TIER. I define the 2nd TIER as those in positions (outside of federal govt) who have direct involvement in print media/internet media, ergo; newspapers/ bloggers / who cover for Obo. I am sure other Freepers here can better flesh this out into a mission statement to cover most bases.
An objective would be to force 2nd TIER members 1 by 1 to retract or correct previous inaccurate statements.
I got the idea when i remembered Larry Klayman's -Judicial Watch hound the Clinton Admin. by getting Sworn Testimony by some in his inner circle. I don't know how you "require sworn affidavits " of anyone, but he got the likes of George Step-on-all-of-us to answer questions under oath and posted such on the J.W. web site.
“FREE THE LONG FORM!”
ID checks are only for the little people
It is indisputable no-one including Obama, or anyone associated with the Obama campaign, or the Obama administration has ever shown a Certificate of Live Birth, what is known as a long form Birth Certificate. This document shows the time, date, and location of the Birth and has the name of the Medical Professional who assisted in the delivery of the baby. Of course there are some persons who were not born in a hospital or with the assistance of a medical professional. In this case however Obama, his representatives and his family have claimed that he was born in a hospital, although they have claimed different hospitals at different times.
The Main Stream Media's reluctance to look into this matter and their insistence on harassing, intimidating, and ridiculing those who feel it is a relevant issue is shameful to the point of being criminal negligence. No one on the outside seems to know the details of Obama’s birth, possibly not even Obama himself. The “conspiracy” here is the willful cover up and legal actions to prevent the release of the relevant documents. Are we to believe that a person who has repeatedly demonstrated that he is a pathological liar would spend nearly $2,000,000.00 to prevent the release of his birth documents is doing so because of some high minded principles? Give me a break!
I sense the eligibility issue is finally getting traction. Nobody wanted to confront The Magic Negrofor fear of being called racist. But after a dismal year in the WH, The Usurper’s lustre is gone.
Can you point me to Maya-Soetoro-Ng’s Hawaiian COLB? Leo Donofrio said there was no such thing.
This was something that had been circulating prior to the election. I thought it was an accepted fact. But at this point it is not clear whether an image of her COLB was/is actually available on the internet.
There are numerous references to her COLB in various places but whether they are legit I do not know. Nor do I really care a great deal because Hawaian COLBs were issued to percons not actually born in Hawaii. I don’t think that this is in dispute.
“”In light of the fact that the state of HI statute 338-17 allowed foreign born children of Hawaiian residents to get Hawaiian birth certificates and statute 338-5 allowed birth certificates to be obtained without any corroborating documents from any hospitals, there is no verifiable prima facia evidence of Obama’s birth in Hawaii,” she argues.”
Thank you for researching this subject so thoroughly. Is it also a “Birther Lie” that the short form Certification of Live Birth that was provided by the Obama campaign did not show the hospital where he was born at or the doctor who delivered him? Is it a “Birther Lie” that Obama has spent huge sums of money to prevent the release of his actual long form birth certificate which would have verifiable information on it which would show where he was born and who was present? If those are not “Birther Lies”, please explain to me why this type of detailed documentation which is required by many little leagues for age verification should not be provided to concerned citizens by their president. Thanks.
Very good! I appreciate your efforts to show the kind of slippery tactics that lawyers are currently using to prevent the citizens of the country from being shown the documents that all of us should expect our president be willing to share. Would you like to argue the meaning of the word “is” with me also.
Quoting from the constitution,”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.”
I doubt whether the founding fathers imagined that appologists for a presidential candidate would have the audacity to argue that a person would not be required to provide verifiable documentation to prove his eligability. The question that I have for you is... why should the president not provide a copy of his long form birth certificate? Any documentation that would help prove his legitimacy as president could only increase his stature and authority both here and abroad. To not do this if such documents exist is counter-productive.
Your claim that there is no proof that the Obama and his representatives have spent no more than a couple of thousand dollars on this matter is simply laughable and undermines your credibility.
Despite what you might think from our discussion here, I want you to know that I sincerely appreciate you and your associates efforts on behalf of Obama in the matter of his elegibility. I am very confident that the midterm ellections will result in a profound change in the make-up of both the Senate and the House of Representatives. It would be a terrible thing if documentation were to surface before the midterm elections in time for him to be forced from office. The resulting constitutional crisis could very well result in both Obama and his running-mate Biden being removed from office and Nancy Pelosi then becoming our nation’s first woman president.
If you can just draw this thing out long enough for the Republicans to take control of both houses of congress... there is a good chance that a Republican will serve as president for the remainder of Obama’s term.
Oh and if you don’t want to believe that anyone born outside of the state of Hawaii ever received a Hawaian COLB despite legal loopholes a mile wide that allowed this then (wink wink) that is just fine with me also. ;’)
So thank you again and keep up the good work! And from a long time member to a new person who claims to be a graduate of West Point and a veteran... welcome to the forums!
OK, I got you we are speaking in code here aren't we? (wink wink) All those lawyers in the dozens of lawsuits related to this issue are working for free and have no connection to Obama or the Justice Department. I got you! (wink wink)
Hey if anyone else is reading through this thread (doubtful) then EnderWiggins has convinced me that we should all accept a completely unverifiable document that he claims meets the legal requirements for proof of eligibility for the presidency. Like he says they didn't have birth certificates or anything that proved anything about anyone until 1915. So just go about your business there is nothing to read here. I am just doing my part to keep one of the president's men busy and out of trouble. (wink wink). Thanks again EnderWiggins!
NO matter how you twist things around... the truth here is that no verifiable documentation has been provided to the public that proves anything about the details of Obama’s birth. The other fact whether that you cannot reasonably dispute is that teams of lawyers have been working on Obama’s behalf since before the election to prevent the documentation of Obama’s life from being unsealed in dozens of lawsuits.
I have noticed that in your arguments you make misstatements that attempt to confuse the issues such as your accounting of who spent the money for the teams of lawyers who are keeping Obama’s records sealed. It is complete obfuscation on your part and may work well at the sites that you are more accustomed to posting at but is fairly transparent here.
You argue that no one has the right to demand to see Obama’s long form birth certificate. You ask who am I. As far as I am concerned anyone in the world should be able to ask to see Obama’s long form birth certificate. He is in a position to hurt everyone in the world. We all can be harmed by the most powerful man in the world. We all have already been harmed by him. He is an irresponsible person who lies nearly everytime he reads from his teleprompter. His policies are a disaster.
