Wow, I have never seen WND get so much credit!

From Media Matters to Keith Olbermann to Democratic members of Congress, they are all eagerly attributing to WND a definitive finding that Barack Hussein Obama’s website displays an actual copy of his birth certificate – so the whole controversy about whether or not he is a “natural born citizen,” as required by the Constitution, is a tempest in a teapot.

There’s just one problem.

Nothing could be further from the truth.

In fact, as any regular visitor would know, I don’t believe that document displayed on Obama’s website proves anything about his eligibility for office – other than the fact that he seems intent on hiding something.

In just the last couple weeks, I have been inundated with e-mails from constituents of several Democratic members of Congress who have misused a single report from WND to assure their faithful that Obama is indeed constitutionally eligible to be sworn into office Jan. 20.

Where’s the proof Barack Obama was born in the U.S. or that he fulfills the “natural-born American” clause in the Constitution? If you still want to see it, join more than 190,000 others and sign up now!

Here’s an example. It’s a constituent letter from Rep. Jay Inslee, D-Wash. He writes: “As you know, President-Elect Obama has indeed provided his actual paper Certification of Live Birth to several media organizations, as well as the Annenberg Foundation’s non-partisan ‘Factcheck.org’ website and the conservative news website WorldNetDaily, which reported that a WND investigation into Obama’s birth certificate utilizing forgery experts also found the document to be authentic.’ In fact, all of these groups have recognized that the president elect’s actual birth certificate document is real and genuine.”

That statement is totally and obviously false.

It’s too bad contempt of Congress charges don’t work in reverse – so that citizens could jail members who lie to them.

At no time did Obama ever make his actual birth certificate available to WND – or any other news organization.

WND did offer up to forgery experts the facsimile of a partial birth certificate posted on his website. None of them could report conclusively that the electronic image was authentic or that it was a forgery.

But, here’s the rub. Even if the image is authentic, which remains under serious question, it proves nothing. It is not a complete birth certificate. It doesn’t answer the key questions as to whether Obama was indeed born in Hawaii, as he claims. As we have pointed out time and time again, in 1961, Hawaii issued birth certificates for babies born outside the country! Since the document posted by the Obama camp does not include the portion of the birth certificate that would establish the hospital or other location of his birth in Hawaii, it offers no help with establishing constitutional eligibility.

If anything, the fact that members of Congress and Obama’s running dog lackeys in the media have to rely on WND to prove their candidate’s constitutionally viability to serve should raise red flags from coast to coast.

No. 1: It is not WND’s job to establish the eligibility of candidates to serve as president. It’s not what we do. It is, on the other hand, the sworn duty of every elected federal official to see that the Constitution is upheld.

No. 2: The overwhelming preponderance of reports by WND on this matter raise serious questions about the eligibility of Obama to serve as president. Therefore, quoting one sentence out of context in one report represents a serious and deliberate distortion by those who are grasping at straws to justify their own predetermination of the facts.

History is often rewritten by the winners.

In this case, history is being rewritten before our very eyes in real time.

And so, sadly, is the Constitution.

Where’s the proof Barack Obama was born in the U.S. or that he fulfills the “natural-born American” clause in the Constitution? If you still want to see it, join more than 190,000 others and sign up now!
