Skip to comments.Wikipedia scrubs Obama eligibility
Posted on 03/08/2009 4:53:35 PM PDT by Jet Jaguar
Wikipedia, the online "free encyclopedia" mega-site written and edited entirely by its users, has been deleting within minutes any mention of eligibility issues surrounding Barack Obama's presidency, with administrators kicking off anyone who writes about the subject, WND has learned.
A perusal through Obama's current Wikipedia entry finds a heavily guarded, mostly glowing biography about the U.S. president. Some of Obama's most controversial past affiliations, including with Rev. Jeremiah Wright and former Weathermen terrorist Bill Ayers, are not once mentioned, even though those associations received much news media attention and served as dominant themes during the presidential elections last year.
Also completely lacking is any mention of the well-publicized concerns surrounding Obama's eligibility to serve as commander-in-chief.
Where's the proof Barack Obama was born in the U.S. or that he fulfills the "natural-born American" clause in the Constitution? If you still want to see it, join more than 300,000 others and sign up now!
Indeed, multiple times, Wikipedia users who wrote about the eligibility issues had their entries deleted almost immediately and were banned from re-posting any material on the website for three days.

“Ayers, Wright also missing in Obama’s bio
The entire Wikipedia entry on Obama seems to be heavily promotional toward the U.S. president. It contains nearly no criticism or controversy, including appropriate mention of important issues where relevant.
For example, the current paragraph on Obama’s religion contains no mention of Wright, even though Obama’s association with the controversial pastor was one of the most talked about issues during the presidential campaign.”
Liberals-champions of the First Amendment.
The libs have been trying to clean everything up.
About a week ago I tried to find racist Wrights “G-D America” video on youtube.... it’s “no longer available”.
We should put insert that phrase in for the definition of Wikipedia
Wikipedia=the socialist teaching aid....
As a teacher I do not allow my students to use wikipedia as a resource. Now I can see even more clearly what a good move that has been. Dominating the media and what is available for the public to learn is a natural step for the marxists and leninists in our government and their supporters.
Maybe we need to have a “truth squad” add some new entries such as obama depression, obama kenyan-in-chief, etc. Can’t 2 play the scrub game?!
Winston works for Wikipedia!
Yep, that’s the way history gets rewritten by the corrupt powers in charge. Just a first that will occur. Hope there’s the equivalent of Wiki out there that still displays the facts.
Wikipedia is okay for non-controversial subjects, but is completely worthless for anything political or controversial. If the site was worth a damn they’d include all the information and only “scrub” that which is reckless or provably false. I know, there are exceptions to the rule and the obvious question of “who decides?” would come into play, but ... no mention at all about his missing BC?!? That’s blatantly garbage!
try Michelle Malkin’s site
Well how are judges and senators going to know what to say when asked about the eligibility issue if wiki isn’t there to tell them?
Wiki is utterly worthless for ANY topic involving any sort of controversy. That’s old news.
The vids who lean right usually head to Live leak, created by a rightwing guy. Youtube is part of Google, and we all know that Google staff helped the Obama campaign...
I heard that Google was doing this as well.
Obama must be guilty as a “jay bird” (of not being a natural born American citizen).
I’m surprised really. Just because it has received so much coverage I would expect the article to report it, even if only to dismiss it.
Try http://conservapedia.com/Obama instead.
Thanks! Good reading.
Drink the Kool-Aid. Just like in the USSR there are alway watchers watching the watchers who are watching the good party members. The trusted users are the ones who know that no one is trusted.
The Democratic party feels it necessary to keep all questions about Obama at a safe distance. It is an unprecedented move to keep secrets about a presidential candidate. The following questions remain sealed from the public. 
Certified Copy of original Birth certificate(see certificate controversy below)
Columbia College records
Columbia Thesis paper
Campaign donor analysis requested by 7 major watchdog groups
Harvard College records
Illinois State Senate records
Illinois State Senate schedule
Law practice client list and billing records/summary
Locations and names of all half-siblings and step-mothers
Medical records (only the one page summary released so far)
Occidental College records
Parent’s Marriage Certificate
Record of baptism
Selective Service Registration
Trips schedules for trips outside of the United States before 2007
Access to his Grandmother (Obama’s Grandmother has since passed away from cancer )
List of all campaign workers that are lobbyists
Obama keeps donations secret by exploiting a loophole that allows campaigns to refuse to divulge donations under $200.00. This is useful to the candidate because many of his contributions are from dubious foreign or illegal sources. It is described as the “largest pool of unidentified money that has ever flooded into the U.S. election system, before or after the McCain-Feingold campaign finance reforms of 2002.
Actually, the footnotes on his wiki page have a link to a picture of his "birth certificate" on politifiction...er...politifact.
One gets banned for three days from making posts if one posts FACTS that could tarnish the one.
There should be a volunteer list that gives users time slots to post the info. The list needs to be big enough to make it through three days and then reset.
I wonder if anybody has tried to get any DMV info of the MARXIST MUSLIM KENYAN.....
Has he ever had a driver license?
Thanks. I couldn’t find it the other day... at least the one I commonly use.
That is too rich.....I’ll have to save that. Thanks
I originally found it on the senate website but it seems to have gone AWOL from there. I did find it on another site.
WikiGestapo strikes again.
You! I caught you posting Anti-Revolutionary Crimes against Obama!
WingNutDaily article. Nuff said.
“WingNutDaily article. Nuff said.”
I am sure you prefer the New York Slimes.
The act of publishing the article is of itself, enough of an error. It's birther lunacy.
Are they wrong?
What? Are you a obama supporter that thinks that his questionable citizenship shouldn't be an issue?
That is your defense of what you said.
You blather and shoot the messenger, and when called on it, you jump and down and say that website cannot publish anything because you said so?
I think you missed your calling. You should have been an editor for the People's Daily Pyongyang Journal.
The details of the article may or may not be accurate.
Publishing such an article is ridiculous. It just feeds the birther frenzy.
If I was running an online encyclopedia, I would delete birther propaganda too. And I’m well on the right side of the political spectrum.
Birthers are our version of truthers. It’s irresponsible to feed them.
