WASHINGTON – First there was Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie’s famous pledge to find Barack Obama’s birth certificate and make it public to shut up the so-called “birthers.”

That raised national interest in the controversy – especially when he failed to produce it.

Then came Donald Trump out of the blue, asking questions WND’s newsroom team has been asking for the last two-and-a-half years.

That raised the national debate to furious new heights.

And now another shoe is ready to drop with a very loud thud that promises to raise the level and intensity of the national controversy beyond anything the public has seen before.

It is the release of “Where’s the Birth Certificate? The Case That Barack Obama Is Not Eligible to Be President” by two-time No. 1 New York Times best-selling author Jerome Corsi – a book that is, more than a month prior to release, setting records for advance sales.

“Potentially, I believe this book is the political endgame for Barack Obama,” says Joseph Farah, editor and chief executive officer of WND and WND Books, the publisher of the title. “I don’t see how he can be re-elected with hard questions and new evidence of his ineligibility raised by the book. It’s a game-changer – and the news media blackout on this issue has now turned into a media feeding frenzy to cover their negligent rear ends.”

Between now and May 17 when the book officially debuts, WND Books has produced television ad spots promoting “Where’s the Birth Certificate?”

Farah hopes the commercials, which are going viral on the Internet, will raise even more interest in the book and spur those frustrated about Obama’s unwillingness to document his eligibility for office to make financial contributions to air the spots on television in May.

In addition, a national billboard campaign running for the last two years – asking “Where’s the birth certificate?” – will be transformed into promotion of the book.

There are other innovative marketing efforts surrounding the book planned for the Kentucky Derby and the Indianapolis 500.

“If you agree with me that this charade by Obama has gone on much too long, I urge you to get behind our efforts in any way you can,” says Farah. “Help spread these videos across the Internet, using your Facebook pages, emails and other social networking tools. Make a donation of at least $25 to the TV ad campaign and you will receive a first-edition, autographed copy of the book before anyone else – that’s cheaper than placing an advance order because free shipping is included.”

Farah concludes, “Watch the videos. Watch the calendar. And watch the Obama re-election campaign squirm.”

Jerome Corsi will not do any media on this book until release date May 17. Media wishing to interview Joseph Farah can contact him by email.
