If anyone has a right to be frustrated and demoralized about the eligibility issue, it is me.

For nearly three years, I have stuck my neck out on it, devoting massive news-gathering resources to unwrapping Barack Obama’s real-life narrative, endured abuse as a “conspiracy theorist” and “wacko” only to see my news organization still standing virtually alone.

Ironically, I’m not discouraged at all about getting resolution to this controversy. In fact, I believe it is right around the corner.

I can understand the reason for the discouragement of others. They’ve watched court case after court case dismissed. They’ve watched an officer and a gentleman by the name of Lt. Col. Terrence Lakin go to prison for trying to get at the truth. They’ve witnessed their majority views of skepticism about Obama ridiculed and marginalized. They’ve seen a near blackout of media coverage of the real issues of constitutional eligibility.

But what most people have not yet noticed is that judgment day is near.

Nearly a year ago, I spelled out how this issue would be resolved no later than 2012.

Today, I can honestly and enthusiastically say, “See, I told you so.”

Jack Cashill’s literary investigation uncovers revelations galore about Obama’s alleged life narrative. Order the new book “Deconstructing Obama: The Life, Love and Letters of America’s First Post-Modern President”

Back then, Americans were still just beginning to become aware of the many contradictions in Obama’s life narrative and the fact that there was no meaningful evidence of his constitutional eligibility.

Today, at least 58 percent of Americans don’t believe his story – and want to see real proof.

That is a crisis for Obama. That’s not a fact that will change should winds of economic recovery blow in his direction over the next two years.

But there’s an even bigger crisis he’s facing in 2012 if he plans to stand for re-election.

Again, as I predicted last year, states are approving strict eligibility tests to get on their ballots as presidential candidates. Back then, I was hopeful four or five states might make such moves, virtually ensuring no candidate of questionable eligibility could ever again run for the presidency, let alone assume office.

My prediction, it turns out, was too conservative.

So far, 11 states have introduced such legislation this year alone, with some of them sure to pass into law.

So be of good cheer, all you crazy “birthers”!

We’re winning.

The system is correcting itself.

The people are having their say.

States are asserting their sovereign rights to conduct free and fair elections.

It’s all good.

And there really is resolution in sight.

I am so confident about the eventual outcome now that I am increasingly persuaded that Barack Obama will not even seek re-election.

That will be the tipoff that our suspicions about Obama’s eligibility and/or life story were correct all along.

Of course, you will have to remind your friends and neighbors and the Big Media that this outcome was predicted years in advance. Don’t expect them to remember. Don’t expect WND to get the Pulitzer Prize for public affairs reporting. Don’t expect any monuments to be erected to me. Don’t expect to get any apologies from the likes of Bill O’Reilly and company.

But let not your heart be troubled over Obama magically surviving this controversy by getting re-elected. That is just not in the cards.

At the same time, however, we need to keep pushing this issue harder and harder and harder. It’s no time to relax and be overconfident. There’s still a lot of work to do.

And here at WND, we have some surprises coming in the next few months that will shock the Obama apologists and the Big Media cover-up artists.

Stay tuned. It’s going to be … interesting.
