WASHINGTON – Aug. 4 is an important date to Barack Obama and an important date for all Americans.
Though he has never released a long-form birth certificate, Obama claims to have been born Aug. 4, 1961, in an unnamed Honolulu hospital that has yet to take credit for the historic birth of the baby who would become America’s first black president.
WND’s SuperStore has designed and printed postcards for the occasion. The front of the card raises the question: “Where’s the birth certificate?” The back is open for your personalized greetings.
“I’m encouraging Americans to send these postcards in plenty of time for Barack Obama’s birthday,” said Joseph Farah, editor and chief executive officer of WND and someone who has made it his personal mission to find that missing birth certificate. “This is an opportunity to anyone to send two messages at once to Obama – one concerning the search for truth about his constitutional eligibility for office and the second your own personalized note.”
Farah points out the postcards can be used to send notes to anyone – not just Barack Obama.
“These postcards are not pre-addressed to the White House,” he said. “They are postcards that can be used to send to your friends, your member of Congress, your relatives. It’s just another way of keeping the issue of eligibility on the front burner – right up through 2012 if necessary.”
Purchasers of the postcards will receive mailing addresses for the White House and Congress should they choose to use them for those purposes.
It’s just the latest effort by Farah to raise the visibility of an issue he says was ignored by his colleagues in the media and most of the nation’s elected officials, including Republicans.
Farah’s first venture into eligibility activism was the launching of an online petition to “all controlling legal authorities” to take the matter seriously. That effort continues to build with nearly 400,000 having signed on.
His second effort was the creation of a magnetic bumper sticker product that has now sold nearly 5,000 units.
Farah’s third effort less than two months ago was the launching of a national billboard campaign that has raised about $100,000 and placed, so far, seven ads at locations around the country. The billboards, like the bumper stickers, say simply: “Where’s the birth certificate?”
Next was the development of yard and rally signs sporting the same design and question.
More recently, Farah put up a $10,000 bounty for verifiable new information about facts of Barack Obama’s birth.
“My hope is that all of these efforts will lead to more awareness and concern about what, I believe, is a paramount constitutional issue,” said Farah. “If we’re going to forget about the Constitution’s requirements for presidents, what exactly are we going to remember when it comes to our most important governing document – the very contract that holds together these United States of America”?
