White House panic: Corsi book targeted
wnd ^ | 5/18/11

Posted on 05/18/2011 5:25:18 PM PDT by Nachum

'Fight the Smears' 2.0 launched, mocks No. 1 best-seller as delusional 'joke'

Why is the White House in full defense mode against a book by a small publisher contending Barack Obama is not legally eligible to be president?

Today, the Obama re-election campaign launched an all-out attack on a brand new book critical of Obama, "Where's the Birth Certificate," by bestselling author Jerome Corsi, Ph.D., calling it delusional, laughable and a "joke."

If this sounds like major déjà vu, it's because the Obama election campaign did exactly the same thing in 2008 when it mobilized a major assault on Corsi's previous book about Obama, the No. 1 New York Times bestseller "The Obama Nation." And that was a response to the impact of his previous No. 1 New York Times bestseller, "Unfit for Command."

Sounds like they are talking about the latest BC forgery.

Most of us simply seek the truth. Wouldn’t that be the right thing to do? And if he is in office illegally, he should be removed. Nuff said.

Wow.. and to think, the photoshoped “abstract” was suppose to end all this.

While I don’t see it as a issue for 2012, it does need to be addressed regardless of obama’s true status. If anything this has proven there is a hole in the law. This needs to be clarified and settled. And a method put in place to verify a person meets the qualifications before placed on the ballet.

Its never been about the BC - I’ve always assumed that he wo uld come up with one [fake or not] ...

Its about being Natural-Born, which HAS NEVER been resolved [either at the USSC or by amendment] ...

Obowmoa doesn't like being Swift Boated.

Wish someone would come out with a "made in Kenya" t-shirt to counter his website lie version - his grin and Made in Kenya on front with the fake BC on back (with a "fake" stamp over it).

My point is that he could produce 1000 valid BCs, but a person with his qualities [born in US, but ALSO claimed as Natural-Born Subject of England] has NEVER been certified as a Natural-Born Citizen ...

Unless he is, the controversy will remain ...

To update a couple of oft-used phrases:

1. "It's never about the [original] crime -- it's about the cover-up."

and

2. "It's the economy FRAUD, stupid."

However in election 2012, it will be both the economy ... and the fraud.

It is a tragedy that the WND morons got fixated on “Where is the Birth Certificate?”, specifically the “long form”.

Most legislative efforts towards having the State of birth of a candidate send the ballot issuing State their COLB got all caught up in ‘long form’ madness and wouldn’t have been Constitutional because of it.

Can’t at least ONE State pass a simple “Hey - send over the COLB and we will put you on the ballot” law?

As you pointed out - so far they have been such a mess that they have been rejected even by Gov. Brewer.

I'm floored to think the judicial and or legislative branches of government are just as broken as the executive branch.

No check and balance of power, just a total disregard for the constitution throughout all levels of the government.

>Posse comitatus...gone.
>Natural born requirement for POTUS...gone.
>Warrants against unreasonable search and seizure....gone.
>Prohibition of foreign funds into our political system...gone.
>Congressional declaration of war....gone.
>Constitutional mandate to protect our borders....gone.

American liberties are vanishing at an alarming rate, astonishing national debt that is nothing less than a national security issue.

Immigration legal and illegal far beyond what our infrastructure can support.

No national energy policy that would free us of foreign sources.

Trade policy that has promoted the largest shift in national wealth in human history to a communist country hostile to America.

I gotta stop....I'm getting a freakin headache (heartache) thinkin about this.

How about a “Barack HUSSEIN Obama, international man of mystery” tee shirt. How about “Barack HUSSEIN Obama” with at picture of Obama bowing to the King of Saudi Arabia. How about a tee shirt with a picture of Barack Obama with a bubble that reads: “Did you know that there are 57 states in the United States?”

When Corsi and Farah make it so easy, why not. The last shred of credibility left the issue when Trump folded his tents. Keeping the buffoons in the spotlight only makes the White House look better in comparison.

Thomas Jefferson wrote many moons ago,”The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.”

Almost as if he were divinely inspired or could see tyrants would someday gain control over this government.

By the way, Jefferson did not say, should be, may be, ought to be......he said,”must be.”

Not suggesting anything, just quoting.

All your ideas are good, and yes that's the way we should fight. About the COLB, I've no doubt the COLB was made in the USA! And that's what should be on our tee shirts

Made in the USA-—Obama’s COLB (but not well made)
Made who knows where-—Obama

We seem to forget we don't have to prove a thing and we can say anything we want. It's what they do and it's been very successful. Even a lie repeated over and over eventually overcomes the truth. For instance “I can see Russia from my house” a misdirected quote and “Sarah Palin is stupid”, nothing to prove it but it's been repeated over and over and I see they are starting it again. We should do the same. I'm tired of fighting fire with the truth, sometimes you have to just make a bigger fire.

Full defense mode? LOL.

The White House is raising money by making fun of birthers now. That's what a national joke the issue has become. That WND is claiming this is sign of a White House in panic demonstrates as clearly as ever that Farah/Corsi are either completely delusional or are pulling out all the stops to gin up the birther crowd with nonsense stories to sell books and generate website hits.

I find it interesting that the Left, the Democrats opened up with everything they had at Sarah Palin, and I mean lies, fabrications of all sorts to smear her to the point nobody would consider her as a viable contender for POTUS (in their minds), much less Dog Catcher, and we are still out here wandering around trying to find anything the Left, the Obama Handlers may have overlooked as they swept his history into the locked closet to prevent anybody from doing the same to him as they have done to her.

Only thing they seem to have overlooked was the Frank Marshall Davis connection, and some other odds and ends relating to that side of the Dunham family.

Obama has released 2 or 3 so called BC. They all have differences. Should be the same no matter what. However, they aren’t. Facts are facts. Apparently how they read depends on the day of the week the BC are released by Obama. Fact is, that the much heralded long form did not say official certified copy and did not have a seal.

And she who said we’d have to pass the healthcare bill in order to see what’s in it also apparently believes we have to elect a POTUS before finding out whether he is eligible.

She never even asked to see any documentation from Hawaii. The HDOH has confirmed that. She swore an oath to the American people that this guy was eligible based on nothing but blind faith in a man who lies every time he opens his mouth.

The system is an epic fail because the people in the positions of power have committed crimes rather than simply do their jobs. We DESPERATELY need to amend the system to allow normal people to challenge both eligibility and whether laws are being followed BY THE GOVERNMENT BUREAUCRACY.

The courts have consistently said that it is none of our business if the government breaks laws or if the Constitution is violated. That’s what the Revolutionary War was all about - to hold accountable a government that was actually DESTRUCTIVE of the end of securing the unalienable rights.

We need to change that. If not by law then the only option available to the people is the same one that was available when this nation was born. Those are the options. I choose the law. We NEED state laws that give normal people the legal standing to challenge Presidential and VP eligibility. That would place the legal determination of a Constitutional issue firmly where it belongs - in the judiciary where both the Constitution and the facts of a particular case are to be decided according to established standards of evidence and law.

The is a Supreme Court case accepted that address Obama’s eligibility under Art II Section 1 Clause 5. There is legal precedent going back 80 years in State & Federal court where a person elected and sworn in has been removed because not being eligible.
This is the major holdup for the Supreme Court as they do not like to create new precedents if they can help it. Since a Federal Judge in CA accepted Alan Keyes case and then threw it out because he had been sworn in, is case law on two specific cases. Obama has until June 4 to submit a written response to this case. His BC is a fraud because AFRICAN is not and never was a category of race especially in 1960s.
This will be an excellent case of a lie proven a lie because of all the subsequent lies needed to support it.
