Question on everyone's mind

Billboards are sprouting around the nation with the simple four-word question “Where’s The Birth Certificate?” and even Rush Limbaugh has joked about the absence of President Obama’s birth certificate.
But probably the highest profile statement being made across the nation today regarding Obama’s eligibility for his office is on the bumpers of cars, and WND’s “Where’s The Birth Certificate” Magnetic Bumper Sticker is in the top position among best-sellers at the WND Superstore for the fourth straight week.
WND founder and editor Joseph Farah, who has organized a fundraising effort to buy up billboards, now has suggested another use for the bumper stickers.
In a recent column he suggested on Aug. 4, Obama’s birthday, “people in the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area take their automobiles and trucks sporting ‘Where’s the birth certificate?’ bumper stickers to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.”
“I don’t know where he was born, but let’s assume he’s telling the truth about the (Aug. 4) date,” he wrote. “I think it’s time for us to start thinking about a birthday present.”
He said perhaps even a few large trucks might be used in the event.
“Take videos. Take pictures. And spread the word. Wouldn’t that be a nice birthday surprise for Barack Obama?”
The question is very simple: Where is the documentation that Obama, indeed, qualifies under the requirements of the U.S. Constitution to be president? 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 or any magnetic surface where you would like to make a statement.
It’s 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 stories on the question.
Recently, the entire transparency portion of the White House website on “open government dialogue” was 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. But a national billboard campaign launched by Farah already has raised tens of thousands of dollars, and a number of billboards have been erected.
That campaign followed one launched months earlier to collect names on an electronic petition demanding accountability and transparency on the issue. So far, the 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 was easily obtainable for children not born in Hawaii. The true “long-form” birth certificate – which includes information such as 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 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.”

Authors Ken Ham and Britt Beemer issue the alert: “Research shows that an alarming number of young adults are leaving church in middle school and high school. Over 60 percent of children who grow up in the church will leave it as young adults. Why is there a massive exodus at such a young age?”
Ham, president of Answers in Genesis and the acclaimed new Creation Museum, and Beemer, chairman of America’s Research Group, surveyed 1,000 young adults who have left churches and found a surprising source for this exodus.
The book suggests a “Sunday school syndrome” is contributing by focusing on inspiration and morality of Bible stories rather than how to defend the authority of God’s Word.
“Already Gone” argues that if a child is unable to defend the historicity and fact of Genesis, then he or she will quickly be disillusioned with the church.
“Ultimately, if we are unable to defend Genesis, we have allowed the enemy to attack our Christian faith and undermine the very first book of the Bible,” the book says.
In third is God’s War on Terror,” by Walid Shoebat.
This work is described as one of the most comprehensive and detailed research projects ever done on Islam and how it connects to the end times.
The book looks at some alarming issues in Islam: That some of its adherents await the coming of the Mahdi, the Mahdi ushers in a seven-year peace treaty, the Mahdi changes times and laws, the Mahdi will rule from the Temple Mount and Islam executes infidels (Christians and Jews) by beheading.
“Is this just a coincidence?” the book asks. “Or is the Mahdi the Antichrist?”
The perspectives on Islam, which come from an ex-Muslim terrorist, also address end-times topics including how Islamic end-times thinking “perfectly matches the spirit of Antichrist,” why a paradigm shift in prophecy is crucial for understanding, how God declared a war on an Islamic coalition – not a European one, and which Muslim nation will lead the coalition.
It also addresses the “mystery Babylon” and what is the “mark” of the beast.”
