MULTIPLE ATTEMPTS TO REACH FACTCHECK STAFF ABOUT OBAMAS PURPORTED COLB ARE IGNORED
The Post & Email has tried on several occasions to reach the staff at Factcheck.org, an organization which describes itself as a nonpartisan, nonprofit consumer advocate for voters that aims to reduce the level of deception and confusion in U.S. politics. We monitor the factual accuracy of what is said by major U.S. political players in the form of TV ads, debates, speeches, interviews and news releases. Our goal is to apply the best practices of both journalism and scholarship, and to increase public knowledge and understanding.
However, Factcheck refuses to answer questions about its August 2008 coverage of the Certification of Live Birth which it claimed resides at Obamas campaign headquarters in Chicago.

Snopes is a website run out of the home of 2 leftists. The husband does the web design. The wife is the "investigator". She alone decides what is rumor or not. Here is an article about Snopes:
Does a Zebra have stripes? Wait, is that now racist to ask?
How about “FatCheck”.Obam
I am sure with a little praise and prodding, you can get these two hacks to brag about what they did. Get it on video and post it. It might be another good undercover effort for Breitbart's group and great evidence for LTC Lakin.
Andrew Breitbart wants nothing to do with birhers. He's sane.
Are you a birther?
I told them about the Kenyan Parliament Minutes which claim, officially, that Obama was born in Kenya. They still haven’t answered!
Brooks and company are probably in hiding because they won’t have a rational explanation for scrubbing EXIF data from their pictures nor an explanation for why Kenyans and Obama’s wife say it’s his home country.
bookmarked — I need these pictures of these perps.
“I need these pictures of these perps.”
Are you making “Wanted for Fraud” posters?
I’m pretty sure it’s Annenberg Project which Obama and Ayers for federal funds for.
That's a good idea. The Post and Email should do just that. If these two sue them for slander, they will have to show how they determined that the documents were not fraudulent and what their expertise was in attesting that the documents were genuine.
Such a fraud poster only needs a picture of Obama on it.
