Media Find Eligibility Billboard Campaign Irresistible
Media find eligibility billboard campaign irresistible
'Where's the birth certificate?' effort covered by London Times
When WND Editor and Chief Executive Officer Joseph Farah launched his billboard campaign focusing attention on Barack Obama's constitutional eligibility for office, he predicted the effort would attract media curiosity – perhaps even more than the central issue of whether the president is truly a "natural born citizen."
Less than a week after the billboard campaign began, media have already begun showing interest – even though, so far, only one billboard, an electronic one, is up and running as a result of the more than $50,000 raised so far.
Over the weekend, the London Times found it an interesting business story, reporting, "A right-wing website has collected more than $10,000 so far to help to fund a series of billboards to be erected around America questioning Barack Obama's credentials for holding office. 'Where's The Birth Certificate?' the posters will demand."
Back stateside, the Washington Examiner also picked up on the campaign.
"The buzz is starting," promised Farah. "Directly investigating why Obama steadfastly refuses to show his birth certificate is considered bad form by most of my colleagues. But they don't mind beating around the edges of this story – especially if involves poking fun at the one news service that is out of step with the rest."

How did Obama make it from the State to Federal senate position without being qualified as a natural born citizen?
Every day proves to me that Senator Joseph McCarthy had these SOB's nailed in 1950, he was noted for making claims that there were large numbers of Communists and Soviet spies and sympathizers inside the federal government and elsewhere. He was right all along, 16 US members were subsequently identified in sworn testimony before U.S. government agencies as being a secret communist.
His Congressional colleagues censured him for speaking the truth and drummed him out.
Mark's comment yesterday makes one think.
The 14th Amendment Sect.3 alone is grounds to repeal The 17th Amendment.
3. No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice-President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any State, who, having previously taken an oath, as a
member of Congress, or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any State legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any State, to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in
insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.
The 17th Amendment provides for this: "Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability." Ensuring tyranny at the top.
