Barack Obama and David Letterman
WASHINGTON – Some days Joseph Farah, the man behind the “Where’s the birth certificate?” billboard campaign, feels like a lonely warrior fighting a crusade against all odds.
Other days, the man known in some circles as “Mr. Birth Certificate” is sure he’s winning the battle for public pressure on Barack Obama to come clean about his early life with some actual documentation.
“Today’s a good day,” he says. “The polls and the action at the state legislative level suggest we will soon get to the bottom of this critically important constitutional issue and avoid any repeat of the fiasco of the 2008 presidential election.”
At the same time, he is enlisting help to make sure.
Farah has devised a 10-point program for eligibility activism.
“I’ve never had confidence that the courts would handle this properly,” Farah said. “At least until now, that has been the case. I still find it difficult to believe that any court in America would find a sitting president ineligible, despite evidence, or even to demand Obama answer the charges.”
Farah’s campaign has been about raising public awareness of the controversy – and, on that score, he is amazed at the results.
“There were many people telling me quite openly, as recently as a year ago, that this campaign was ‘not a winning issue,’” he said. “Others called it a distraction. Even today, two years into the Obama administration, some say it’s a setup – and Obama is just going to make me look foolish. But all I have ever demanded was the truth. If Obama can produce the evidence to persuade the majority of Americans he’s constitutionally eligible, I welcome the opportunity to see it.”
Farah is asking all those who agree with him to do the following:
- Sign up to get the free report WND has produced as a primer on this issue. “If you get this report, I guaranty you will know more about this subject than Bill O’Reilly and Chris Matthews combined – actually a lot more,” he says. It’s the most in-depth primer on the subject ever compiled. If you prefer, you can get a paperback version of the report for only $7.95.
- Support his “Where’s the birth certificate?” national billboard campaign with a donation of $2 or more. This campaign has posted more than 60 billboards around the country over the last two years – billboards that have been seen by tens of millions of people in person or on TV news reports.

- Get a copy of the only full-length video-documentary produced on the topic by WND Films – “A Question of Eligibility” – and show your friends. Farah has reduced the price on this dramatic video to put it within the reach of every activist.
- Get yard and rally signs that ask the same question – turning your front yard or appearance at a tea party rally into a billboard.
- Order your T-shirts with the same slogan so, when the weather turns nice, you can turn up the pressure on Obama.
- Order a pack or two of “Where’s the birth certificate?” postcards to send all your friends. It shows the yard sign out in front of the White House!
- Order your “Where’s the birth certificate?” bumper stickers – either the traditional stickies or the new magnetic ones.
- Be sure to sign one of the two petitions calling for action from elected officials on the eligibility issue: One directed at federal officials (with more than 500,000 signatures to date) and the other directed toward state officials with about 50,000.
- Donate any amount to the investigative reporting fund to find out the truth about Barack Obama. Did you know WND has published hundreds of investigative stories about this subject – more than the rest of the media combined?
- Lastly, pre-order what is bound to be the No. 1 best-selling book in the nation come May 17 – Jerome Corsi’s “Where’s the birth certificate?” Corsi is the two-time No. 1 New York Times best-selling author of “The ObamaNation” and “Unfit for Command.” He’ll be back for a third try with this blockbuster. You can be among the first to get it – autographed – by ordering in advance.
“It’s time to step up the pressure,” says Farah. “If you want to encourage me to keep up the fight, please follow this ‘how to become an eligibility activist 10-point program.’”
