Demand soars for eligibility postcards

The issue of Barack Obama’s eligibility to be president remains uppermost among the concerns of WND readers as, for the second week in a row, WND’s “White House Eligibility Postcards” top the list of best-sellers at the WND Superstore.
Obama has reported he was born Aug. 4, 1961, in an unnamed Honolulu hospital. But there has been no birth certificate released, no verification, no doctor’s testimony and no witness confirmation of his statement. And even a letter purporting to be from Obama claiming Honolulu’s Kapi’olani hospital as his birthplace has not been confirmed by the White House.
So the SuperStore designed and printed postcards for the coming occasion. The front of the card raises the question: “Where’s The Birth Certificate?” The back is open for personalized greetings. The postcards measure about four inches by six.
“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.”
The postcards can be used to send notes to anyone – not just 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.”
The postcards are just one of the efforts 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.
In second place at the WND Superstore is WND’s “Where’s The Birth Certificate” Magnetic Bumper Sticker, another simple way to keep the question in front of the nation.
Farah, who also has organized a fundraising effort to buy up billboards, urges that on Aug. 4 people in the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area should “take their automobiles and trucks sporting ‘Where’s the birth certificate?’ bumper stickers to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.”
“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 a car, but for a refrigerator, file cabinet or any magnetic surface.
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 issue.
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.
White House spokesman Robert Gibbs also laughed at the reporter who inquired about the long-form birth certificate at a news briefing. But the national billboard campaign launched by Farah already has raised tens of thousands of dollars, and a number of billboards have been erected.
The 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 more than 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 publicly asked a member of the administration a question directly related to Obama’s constitutional eligibility for office as a “natural born citizen.”
Both the petition and the billboard campaign are part of what Farah calls an independent “truth and transparency campaign.”
Your billboard campaign donation – from as little as $5 to as much as $1,000 – can be made online at the WND SuperStore. (Donations are not tax-deductible.

Box 1627, Medford, Oregon, 97501. Be sure to specify the purpose of the donation by writing “billboard” on the check. In addition, donations of billboard space will be accepted, as will significant contributions specifically targeted for geographic locations.)
In third place is “Liberty and Tyranny: A Conservative Manifesto” by Mark R. Levin.
The author of the ground-breaking critique of the Supreme Court, “Men in Black,” now delivers a book that that issues a clarion call to conservative America, “a new manifesto for the conservative movement for the 21st century.”
In the book, he writes, “Conservatism is the antidote to tyranny precisely because its principles are our founding principles.”
In this series of powerful essays, Levin lays out how conservatives can counter the liberal corrosion that has filtered into every timely issue, from the economy to health care, global warming, immigration, and more – and illustrates how change, as seen through the conservative lens, is always prudent, and always an enhancement to individual freedom.
His comments come in the face of the modern liberal assault on Constitution-based values, an attack that has steadily snowballed since President Roosevelt’s New Deal of the 1930s produced a massive, unaccountable federal government.
Levin describes this as a time for re-enforcing the intellectual and practical case for conservatism.
“Conservative beliefs in individual freedoms do, in the end, stand for liberty for all Americans, while liberal dictates lead to the breakdown of civilized society – in short, tyranny,” he warns.
