“Is CBS here? ABC?” asked Brian Reilly of Arizona’s Surprise Tea Party. “How about ‘conservative’ Fox, are they here? They’re nowhere to be seen.”
Reilly was referring to the distinct lack of press at a press conference held over the weekend – and opened to the public – on investigative findings suggesting Barack Obama presented a forged birth certificate to the nation as “proof” of his eligibility to be president.
“The reason we’re here,” Reilly continued, “is because the media is not covering this particular topic.”
As WND reported, Maricopa County, Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio and his Cold Case Posse announced at an earlier press conference that there is probable cause indicating the documents released by the White House last April purported to be Obama’s original, long-form birth certificate and Selective Service registration card are actually forgeries.
But with the mainstream media’s refusal to give due attention to the investigation’s findings, Reilly, Arpaio and others involved with the Cold Case Posse met again at the Church on the Green in Surprise, Ariz., on March 31 to begin spreading the news by “word of mouth.”
