Make the media cover the story of the century

One of the most often asked questions regarding whether or not Barack Obama meets the constitutional requirements for the office of president is: “Why hasn’t the ‘mainstream’ media covered this?” Good question.
Well, one thing we found out in the last election is there isn’t anything “mainstream” about the “mainstream” media. There is no longer any doubt about their pro-Obama bias – even the Washington Post came out and admitted it. If it weren’t for WorldNetDaily, a few radio talk shows and some blogs, we wouldn’t even know about the constitutional crisis we’re in. Interestingly, these are the first things on the chopping block in an unchecked Obama administration.
Look, we’re not asking for the world here. Neither is the Constitution. Some pretty basic requirements like being 35 years old, having 14 years residency in the United States, and being a natural born citizen. When Sen. John McCain was questioned about it, he showed his birth certificate without hesitating. When Barack Obama was asked by courts, including the U.S. Supreme Court, he ducked and hid behind the right to privacy.
Ironically, when Obama was running for the Illinois Senate, he won by disqualifying every candidate who ran against him in the primary, including a guy who had been through a nasty and salacious divorce. Even though he had a small child who could be hurt by the information being made public, a court decided that the public’s “right to know” outweighed this poor fella’s right to privacy, and he backed out. Obama clings to the “right to privacy” regarding his own qualifications, just not his opponents.
The second most-asked question about Obama’s citizenship is: “Don’t you think someone would have found out the answer to these questions before now?” Also an outstanding question. Phil Berg, whose case is now before the U.S. Supreme Court, not only filed suit in August but also copied Democratic Party Chairman Howard Dean on the matter before Obama was chosen as the nominee. I would have thought that something as important as whether a potential nominee is qualified to serve in office might be worth a question or two prior to the party’s selection. But that information was ignored, and now they’re just hoping it will all go away.
It won’t. Not until Obama comes forward with the proof that the American people want and the Constitution demand.
But what can an ordinary citizen do to defend the Constitution? Instead of sitting on the sidelines wringing our hands, we can do something about it. If the “news” channels won’t cover what may be the biggest story of our lifetime, I say, let’s buy it. Help put this television ad on the air – watch it at ObamaForgery.com:
Heard the rumors about Barack Obama’s citizenship?
These are the facts:
The Constitution requires the president to be a natural born citizen.
Obama’s grandmother said she there when Barack was born in Kenya.
Obama refuses to release his original birth certificate.
Instead of a birth certificate, Obama’s campaign posted a certification given to those born abroad.
Experts have called even that document an “obvious forgery.”
Obama attended school in Indonesia as Barry Soetoro, when only Indonesian citizens were permitted to attend.
Obama’s school records list his father as Lolo Soetoro and Obama’s citizenship as Indonesian.
Obama traveled to Pakistan in 1981 when it was illegal to enter as a U.S. citizen.
Sixteen lawsuits in 12 states and two cases before the Supreme Court now challenge Obama’s citizenship.
Fact: Our Constitution still matters.
Illuminati Pictures, who produced the video of expert Ron Polarik, produced this ad that raises as many of the facts regarding Obama’s citizenship as one can fit in 60 seconds. Let’s let America hear them and add their voice to the 120,000 who signed the WND petition in the last few days.
Go to www.Faith2Action.org and watch the ad. Any Web donation to Faith2Action from now until Dec. 15 will go directly toward airtime to place this ad on television. How much is it going to take? Well, $12,000 buys a national 60-second ad on Fox News between 5 and 6 p.m. I say let’s buy a few of those and publicize it so the rest of the world finally hears about the constitutional crisis we’re in. Then, the Bill O’Reillys, Sean Hannitys and Rush Limbaughs may decide to cover the story of the century.
