The latest billboard to ask the question “Where’s the birth certificate?”
went up in Panama City, Fla., this weekend – adding more pressure in the
eligibility quest that now represents the opinions of at least 58 percent of Americans,
according to the latest CNN poll.

The new board is at the intersection of highways 231 and 390 near a BP station in
Panama City.

It joins another similar electronic billboard in nearby Navarre, near the location at
which Barack Obama and his family are vacationing this week and the same location an Obama
motorcade passed on a trip to the Gulf.

It’s part of a campaign
launched by WND founder and CEO Joseph Farah.

The billboard campaign has posted signs in more than 50 cities since it was launched in
2009.

Farah attributes widespread interest in the great “birth-certificate
controversy” to the billboard campaign that, he believes, rekindled the debate about
Obama’s constitutional eligibility for office. The campaign asks the simple
but unanswered question, “Where’s the birth certificate?”

The campaign has been sustained by contributions from WND visitors and others who have
discovered it from simply driving past a billboard.

“It has certainly changed my life,” explains Farah. “A year ago I was
still getting regular invitations to be on cable TV shows and talk about the issues of the
day. The minute I was labeled a ‘birther,’ I became radioactive – just like Lou
Dobbs.”

He’s also convinced that it’s working.

“No matter how hard my colleagues try to make the public forget about this issue,
no matter how hard they attempt to ridicule anyone who wants to see the proof, no matter
how much they demean even decorated military officers who take their own oaths seriously,
this issue will not go away. It’s going to be around in 2012. It may even be the defining
issue in 2012,” he said.

Farah says he could not have pulled off the campaign without the support of WND’s
visitors. The cost of the
billboards has been offset by donations – and Farah says he wants to step up the
campaign because it’s winning.

The AP report noted the area has “voted overwhelming[ly] for Republican
presidential candidates in [the] last 30 years.”

The latest
CBS–New York Times poll
showed only 58 percent of Americans even think
Obama was born in the USA. Another later poll by CNN indicated six in 10 hold doubts about
Obama’s birth and, therefore, eligibility.

“I’m quite sure based on our own polls that if those people were asked whether
they would like to see Obama release his birth certificate, more than half the country
would say ‘yes’ – and all the other personal papers he has refused to
disclose,” Farah said.

Farah says the billboards have had a lot to do with changing popular opinion
– even if the media don’t get it.

“People simply shouldn’t have to conjecture about where they think their president
was born,” he says. “It ought to be a matter of public record – and it
clearly is not.”

Aside from the billboard campaign, WND has devoted more
investigative reporting to the issue of eligibility than “all other media outlets
combined,”
says Farah.

In addition, the billboard campaign was rejected by three major billboard companies,
all owned by major media outlets – CBS, Clear Channel and Lamar.

“What I need Americans to understand is that this billboard campaign is
working,” said Farah. “There is no shortage of billboards available to us. The only thing there’s a
shortage of is the money to erect them. We need to raise tens of thousands of dollars a
month just to keep them in place.”

“The impact of the billboards is magnified by local television and talk-radio
shows in every market they enter,” explains Farah. “It’s not just the billboard.
It’s the earned media that comes along with it. It’s astounding. We have turned millions
of people around on this issue with the billboards. It’s just that simple.”

In addition to the billboard campaign, Farah has:

“There are all kinds of things we need to do right now to get our country back on
track, but I can think of nothing more important than for us to see that our Constitution
is observed, followed, adhered to and honored, especially when it comes to such simple,
straightforward matters as the eligibility of the president of the United States,”
says Farah. “Please
help me bring this matter to a head right now.”
