Question that won't go away
Posted By -NO AUTHOR- On 06/09/2009 @ 9:11 pm In Front Page | Comments Disabled
In recent days two major advertising companies in the United States, CBS and Lamar Outdoor, have refused to sell billboard space for the simple question, “Where’s the Birth Certificate?” But the message is getting out anyway, with WND’s “Where’s The Birth Certificate” Magnetic Bumper Sticker in the top position among best-sellers at the WND Superstore for the second straight week.
The question already is going up on other billboards and has been posed at a White House news briefing and on a government website. But the bumper stickers are reaching the grass-roots levels, where friends and neighbors can see the question about the issue of Obama’s eligibility, which despite all the claims about an “online certification of live birth,” still hasn’t been documented.
The question is simple: Where is the documentation. The bumper sticker allows people to make a bold demand for the truth.
The magnetic, permanent yet removable bumper sticker measures 15 by 3-3/4 inches and is perfect not only for your car, but for your refrigerator, file cabinet – any magnetic surface where you would like to make a statement.
Available singly and in packs of 5, 10 and 25.
WND has reported extensively on the issue, with a report called “THE FULL STORY” that lists more than 200 exclusive WND reports on the question.
Over the last week, the entire transparency portion of the White House website on “open government dialogue” has been overrun with citizens calling on Obama to release his elusive “long-form” birth certificate to establish his constitutional eligibility to serve as president.
Among the comments posted:
White House spokesman Robert Gibbs earlier laughed at the reporter who inquired about the long-form birth certificate at a news briefing.
The national billboard campaign was launched by Joseph Farah, editor and chief executive officer of WND,. and already has raised about $75,000.
That campaign followed one launched months earlier to collect names on an electronic petition demanding accountability and transparency on the issue. So far, that petition has gathered nearly 400,000 names.
In his questioning of Gibbs, WND White House correspondent Les Kinsolving specifically made reference to the WND petition.
“Are you looking for the president’s birth certificate?” Gibbs responded incredulously. “Lester, this question in many ways continues to astound me. The state of Hawaii provided a copy with the seal of the president’s birth. I know there are apparently at least 400,000 people – (laughter) – that continue to doubt the existence of and the certification by the state of Hawaii of the president’s birth there, but it’s on the Internet because we put it on the Internet for each of those 400,000 to download. I certainly hope by the fourth year of our administration that we’ll have dealt with this burgeoning birth controversy.”
It was the first time any member of the press corps has publicly asked a member of the administration a question directly related to Obama’s constitutional eligibility for office as a “natural born citizen.”
The “Certification of Live Birth” posted online and widely touted as “Obama’s birth certificate” does not in any way prove he was born in Hawaii, since the same “short-form” document is easily obtainable for children not born in Hawaii. The true “long-form” birth certificate – which includes information like the name of the birth hospital and attending physician – is the only document that can prove Obama was born in Hawaii, but to date he has not permitted its release for public or press scrutiny.
Oddly, though congressional hearings were held to determine whether Sen. John McCain was constitutionally eligible to be president as a “natural born citizen,” no controlling legal authority ever sought to verify Obama’s claim to a Hawaiian birth.
Both the petition and the billboard campaign are part of what Farah calls an independent “truth and transparency campaign.”

The second-most popular item was the May issue of Whistleblower magazine, which talks about the rebellion in America’s Heartland under the headline “Don’t Tread on Me.”
“For every action,” Isaac Newton famously said, “there is an equal and opposite reaction.” And right now the Obama administration’s actions – massively expanding government, socializing entire industries, plunging the nation into ruinous debt, snubbing allies while appeasing adversaries – are being met by a massive reaction in America’s heartland.
The growing backlash on the part of outraged citizens, including an extraordinary rebellion by state legislators unprecedented in modern times, is chronicled in the June edition of Whistleblower magazine, titled “‘DON’T TREAD ON ME’: Rebellion in America’s Heartland.”
The issue documents how, from coast to coast, from “tea parties,” “9-12ers” and public demonstrations to the burgeoning state sovereignty movement in legislatures across the land, Americans are coming together to take their country back.
In a stinging rebuke to the federal government and an affirmation of the Constitution’s 10th Amendment, dozens of state legislatures are recognizing they are under the thumb of central government tyranny and are saying no to it with resolutions asserting their state sovereignty.
The third-most popular item in the Superstore was the campaign to “Stop The Pedophile Protection Act”.
The campaign sends letters to members of the U.S. Senate over the “signature” of the purchaser, opposing the fast-tracked S. 909, ‘The Local Law Enforcement Hate Crimes Prevention Act,” which would “not only criminalize free speech but provide elevated protection to pedophiles.”
It was exposed as the “Pedophile Protection Act” when an amendment to exclude pedophiles from special legal protections, offered by Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, was rejected by the Democrats in the House Judiciary Committee.
Rep. Alcee Hastings, D-Florida, admitted from the House Floor that this bill put 547 forms of sexual deviancies listed by the American Psychiatric Association, which he referred to as “all of these ‘philias’ and fetishes and ‘isms’” on the same level of elevated protection as “race … religion … gender … or disability.”
Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, a former appellate judge on the House committee, clarified further: “…We just rejected an amendment to including pedophilia from being a part of this protected class. Do you realize what that means?
“If a mother hears that their child has been raped and she slaps the assailant with her purse, she is now gone after as a hate criminal because this is a protected class. There are other protected classes in here. I mean simple exhibitionism. I have female friends who have told me over the years that some guy flashed them, and their immediate reaction was to hit them with their purse. Well now, he’s committed a misdemeanor, [and] she has committed a federal hate crime because the exhibitionism is protected under sexual orientation.”
