The real conspiracy peddlers

Exclusive: Joseph Farah examines 'investigative report' packed with innuendo, errors

Here it is for you to see for yourself: A CBS News affiliate report from Phoenix on the breathtaking conspiracy behind the audacious decision of the Arizona secretary of state to ask for confirmation of Barack Obama’s constitutional eligibility before placing his name on the ballot.

And who was it that manipulated Ken Bennett to take this audacious action?

The CBS 5 investigative report by Morgan Loew concludes “the real driving force behind the move might have actually been a wealthy conspiracy theory peddler.”

And who might that be?

I’m not sure – after reading and watching the whole report.

It could be someone named Tom Ballantyne, but the story never explains how wealthy he is or how he may have accumulated his wealth.

The other alternative is me.

I suspect, from reading and re-reading the story, it’s Ballantyne, because he “admits” helping to mobilize tea-party members to lobby Bennett to act.

I wasn’t aware that political action of that kind was illegal in America today. But it seems Ballantyne’s real offense is his tenuous connections with me, according to this report.

“In the days and months before members of the Surprise tea party demanded Bennett investigate the legitimacy of President Obama’s birth certificate, two authors who contribute to conspiracy theory websites gave presentations to the organization,” reports Loew.

Those two authors, if I’m following this convoluted conspiracy invented by Loew, are Ballantyne and WND’s Jerome Corsi.

“Both websites were started by Joseph Farah, a former newspaper editor,” Loew writes. “Farah is a leading voice in conservative media, questioning the citizenship of the president. A review of editorials Farah has written show he has also pushed theories that Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh had ties to a Middle Eastern terrorist

Quite Honestly I like Mitts style better.
I have never been a conspiracy theorist or a Mitt fan, but Mitt is working this better than WMD by just stuffing Obama’s words down his throat.

For 16 years, Obama’s bio at his publicist plugged that he had been born in Kenya. Obama is the original birther!!

If he said he was born in Kenya, then who am I to doubt him?
