Now that Obama and the liberal Democrats have been in power for seven months, and all of these things conservatives warned about have either happened or are happening now, and Obama still refuses to release his original birth certificate, preferring to forge one instead, while illegally using campaign funds to pay his personal attorney over 1 million to keep it hidden, the liberals no longer call them racists and rightwing extremists.
Now, they call them racists, rightwing extremists, wing nuts, and tin-foil hat conspiracy theorists with the previously silent, liberal media doing the same.
During the Presidential campaign last year, a vicious rumor about one of the candidates running for President was making its way around the Internet. It made the patently absurd claim that a well-known US Senator was born in another country and was not qualified to become President. These rumors persisted due to extremists on the political fringe who kept them alive. These rumor-mongers insisted that the Senator was hiding his birth certificate because it would prove that he was not born on US Soil. Never has there been such racism displayed or such utter discrimination shown to an esteemed member of our government. These tin-foil hat conspiracy nuts were very reminiscent of members of the 9/11 Truth Movement, a group who maintained that President George Bush and his Administration had deliberately caused the 9/11 attack on the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. There wasn’t just one conspiracy about 9/11, like this birth certificate nonsense, there were hundreds of them and the people who promulgated them were known as “Truthers.” In a similar vein, the conspiracy theorists would come to be known as the “Birthers.”
They would continue to hound the media in hopes they could get some recognition. They were determined to have the Senator removed from the ballot saying that he is not Constitutionally-qualified. When the mainstream media ignored them, one of them had the gall to file a lawsuit in court, charging that the Senator was not born in the US, and because of a little-known clause in the Constitution that requires the President to be a natural-born citizen. The Supreme Court has never legally defined what “natural-born citizen” means, but the president has always been that only “a child, born on US soil, to two US citizens” is a natural-born citizen.
After having the lawsuit thrown out of court because the Plaintiff did not have standing, and tiring of all the nasty rumors, the Senator released a copy of his original birth certificate that members of Congress could also see and accept that he had provided proof that he was fully qualified to become President.
Yet, the rumors persisted, and now a self-styled “expert” was claiming that he “proved” the Senator’s birth certificate was forged! It begs the question as to how a US Senator could have risen so far, as to be on the precipice of securing the highest office in the land without ever being certified as eligible.
Well, so much for Senator McCain’s trials and tribulations. Now it was Senator Obama’s turn.
You heard that right. The original “Birthers” were not right-wing extremists who hated the idea of a Black man becoming President -- they were LEFT-wing extremists who hated the idea of a 72 year-old White man becoming President. In April, the Senate unanimously approved a Resolution, co-sponsored by the Junior Senator from Illinois, Barack Hussein Obama, that Senator John Sydney McCain was a natural-born citizen of the United States, whose parents were two US Citizens serving our country at the Coco Solo Naval Base in the Panama Canal Zone – an area considered to be under US territorial jurisdiction (but has been disputed) – and therefore, was Constitutionally-eligible to become President.
It was the Leftist liberal Birthers who claimed to find not one, but two original birth certificates showing that McCain was born in Colon, Panama. The “self-styled expert” who proved that these birth certificate copies had been forged was none other than Dr. Ron Polarik, at your service.
Senator John McCain was asked by the Senate to show a copy of his original birth certificate, which he did, along with 2,500 pages of medical records, and a unanimous Resolution was passed certifying him as eligible to run for President.
Senator Obama cannot be a natural-born citizen (NBC) according to the majority interpretation of NBC and the precident established in all previous Presidential elections; that is, a child born on US soil to two US citizens.
Why, then, didn’t the Senate also certify Senator Barack Obama in the same way?
Was it because at the time of Obama's birth, he automatically acquired his father's British citizenship at birth rendering him not an NBC?
Does it have anything to with an ultra-leftist blog being the first one to see a copy his alleged “original birth certificate?” Does it have anything to with an ultra-leftist blog being the first place a very suspicious-looking copy or his alleged “original birth certificate was posted?
Does it have anything to with this ultra-leftist blog being a site that only ultra-leftist liberals would visit?
No! It is not a place where the public, at large, could see it. So the claim that Obama “released a copy of birth certificate” for the public to see, was patently false for the entire day of June 12, and it was only in the late afternoon that the Obama Campaign posted a copy of the same birth certificate, but one that was less than half its size, and originally contained in a PDF file. Realizing that putting an image in a PDF file is not the same thing as “showing it,” they posted the image as a JPG file.
Then, on the following day, the Obama Campaign announces that is launching a new website called “Fight The Smears” which they said they created to “push back” on all of the “Smears” that his opponents were making, including the one about Obama not being a US citizen, and to fight that “smear,” Obama had posted a copy of his “original birth certificate.” However, when they saw how people were questioning the validity of the image shown on the Daily Kos, they quickly changed their image file into one that was half again as small and barely legible.
Even then, it was a false claim to say that Obama “released a copy of birth certificate” for the public to see, because only supporters of Obama would ever visit his website, and it wasn’t his supporters who were asking to see his birth certificate.
So, during the next three days, both the Annenberg Political Fact Check and its sister site, Politifact, posted their own copies of the same image, but yet in different sizes and qualities. Then, the media went to work, publicizing these sites as bring the places and people who “verified” Obama’s “original birth certificate.”
But, that was a bald-faced lie as this “document image” was portraying a Certification of Live Birth, a two-side piece of paper containing a transcript of a birth record, and was not an original birth certificate. Yet these two sites would persist to falsely claim that this copy was made from “Obama’s original birth certificate.” And what about the criticisms made of the image? Only a small handful of people would continue to say that this image was not a genuine image at all but a heavily doctored one. The more that people persisted in criticizing the image, the more that Annenberg FactCheck would defend it and slander those making the criticisms. This would also be the modus operandi of Politifact, another so-called “Fact Checker,” as well as Snopes, a so-called “urban myth buster.”
These sites operated under the guise of being “nonpolitical and nonpartisan,” but nothing could be further from the truth. These groups were blatantly pro-Obama and anti-Clinton during the primaries, and after the candidates were selected, they were still blatantly pro-Obama but were now just as anti-McCain.
Although they posted a number of criticisms of Obama, the numbers were not equal, and the differential between the weights assigned to an issue, namely the importance of an issue, was heavily weighted in favor of Obama and against McCain.
Clearly, the strategy implemented by the Obama Campaign was to lie about everything and try to get away with it, knowing full-well, that even if half of what they claimed was “debunked” by Factcheck, they would win out on the other half which they knew were the more important issues. Obama had many friends and supporters in common with the Annenberg Foundation that would serve to influence FactCheck on what they should or should not claim about Obama. Metaphorically, the people who ran Factcheck knew on which side of their bread was buttered. The ties between powerful people in the Democratic party and Annenberg, as well as between them and Obama ran just as far and just as deep.
The only meaningful way to characterize Annenberg Factcheck (along with the other so-called “fact checking” sites), is to treat it as a Propaganda wing of the Obama Campaign. Factcheck was Obama’s full-time alibi service. They were so far in-the-tank for Obama that they would need deep sea diving equipment. Factcheck was the perfect shill, having been in existence since 200three.
Without a doubt, this one-sided, heavily doctored image led to the most inexplicable and unbelievable series of defensive efforts ever launched over a facsimile. The visit to the Obama Headquarters by two Factcheck staffers to “see, touch, and take photos” of this “hallowed and revered” COLB object just to prove that there really was a “three-dimensional” piece of paper with a heavily-embossed Seal and the Registrar’s signature block on the reverse side, a side that was never scanned in the two months following the “official” posting of the “scam” image.
Also, for those two months, the number of people who likewise rushed to its defense, slandering and libeling anyone who said anything negative about it. If an anomaly was mentioned, not only was the person ostracized for even mentioning it, there were no shortages of off-the-wall excuses for it.
Unless the average person visited the slime pits that comprise the liberal blosphere, they would have no idea just how savagely they attacked me, while postulating anything that explained away the anomaly.
I said that the Seal is not the same one used by Hawaii on 2007 COLBs, and one of them said that they “changed the design” after on 7, 2007, the date of the date-stamp.
I said that the color was totally changed, they claimed that it was done to make it look better.
I said that the borders don’t look like the actual 2007 borders, they said it was the fault of the scanner the Campaign used.
I said that there were white and grey pixels in the letters, and in between the letters, they said that it’s scanner artifacts, or JPG artifacts, or anti-aliasing.
Every little idiosyncratic difference I found, they came up with another cockamamie excuse for it.
If you had 850 million dollars and you wanted to make an honest copy of a very important document so that people who see it would know that it’s genuine, THIS is not the way you would do it. This scan image is about as far away from being genuine and representative as any copy can be. The evidence that this image has been edited and altered is irrefutable. It has all of the digital signatures of being Photoshopped: the process of editing an whenever an image or photo is edited to make it resemble something that does not exist in real life, we say that it has been Photoshopped. Adobe Photoshop is a high-end graphics editing software with a long history of being the program of choice for professional photographers and graphic artists. Photoshop, and programs like it, can take a photo or image and recreate it according to wishes of the user.
If someone wanted to take a horse and make a unicorn out of it that will have believe they exist, then Photoshop will do it. It has all of the physical quantities of being Photoshopped.
More to come. Stay tuned.
So not that much has changed.
Nicely done, what are the chances they’ll publish it (or claim it for their own)?
But we never expected our congress critters to be so pliable and gutless. Whatever bad law is passed, they too have to be held accountable. Obama alone is not able to destroy this country singlehandedly — it takes Congress to help him with it.
Every time a conservative warned America about Obama’s plans for America, the liberal media would intercede on Obama’s behalf and calm the waters.
Very impressive article! I’m looking forward to seeing it in WND.
May God bless you in your work and ( especially) keep you safe.
Anyone who believes an anonymous poster’s claims is psychotic.
An anonymous poster who claims to be qualified to give expert opinion is psychotic.
Are you people really so mentally deranged that you believe some person posting on the Web?
Where is your ability to think critically?
Experts’ opinions are valued because of WHO the person is, not who he or she claims to be.
Someone hiding himself and preying on your suspicions of Obama is using you. I urge you to stop and think clearly about the utter insanity of buying this person’s snake oil.
He’s at least as bad as Obama himself.
It pains me to see you all fall for this. WND, I can see falling for it. Because WND persists in publishing lies that it knows are lies.
I thought FR was different. It never used to have so many gullible people.
It’s so sad to watch you all go mad, for that is surely where you are headed if you don’t stop thinking like crazy people.
Don’t forget that I am totally opposed to Obama’s political philosophy — what I am railing against (above) is your buying into the insanity of what Polarik says about himself and about the document Obama produced.
Maybe the COLB is a fake.
But a real man or woman will prove it, not a coward like Polarik, whose goal is apparently simply to get attention.
He’s sick, folks, so I pray you’ll protect yourselves.
Just remember that I totally oppose EVERYTHING Obama stands for.
Ok, TE, I don't believe a word you have printed here. Thanks.
No, Troglodyte. Experts are valued for the facts they find, and we don't give a sh** about YOUR opinions.
(Congressmen don't read what they pass judgment on either.)
Question about the BC thing...
I don’t have my original, paper birth certificate - all I have are the “certified” reprints you can order. While I am not attempting to stand up for Obama, why is that such an impossible thing?
“Stay the course!” Please, “Stay the course! The Truth Will Out!
Wayne reminds me of these other nuts and Lyndon LaRouche fruitcakes he championed in writing as poor little "victims":
Valerie Plame Wilson
Gen. Janis Karpinski
Tech ed, I am such a cynic on anything printed or reported that most of the time I just set it all aside and wait for more facts.
From my research I knew last year who obama was and no one would listen to me. I already knew these things without the forensic science behind Polariks evidence. In fact, he is the only one who could make me understand the borders stuff.
I just had a feeling and went digging. My friends were shocked I became political. I felt my children were going to lose the America I grew up in. Obama’s past was scary and the way he went about hiding it meant I was on the right track. I found articles scrubbed and I found obama was a total phony. I had no means of proving it and I was too busy working to call the media or find the facts to prove my theory. Polarik and others put a lot of it together for me.
I wish you would argue or discuss the facts instead of shooting the messenger and berating them personally. Which parts specifically do you disagree with? You say use common sense. Common sense says you don’t hide something unless it will hurt or destroy you.
Obama is hiding something, many things and i want to know what it is. He is taking our country to his progressive ideology and if he is backed by radical islam then I want him out of office NOW.
