The anti-Obama rumor mongering hasn’t seemed to dissipate but is flying along under most peoples radar. I keep seeing more and more people blogging about Berg v Obama, Martin v Hawaii and Donofrio v Wells with statements like, I didn’t know about this until now, and why isn’t this in the mainstream media?
The reason is simple – there is no proof to rumors. Circumstantial evidence does not make it fact although one of my lawyer friends could certainly come up with cases where people have been convicted only on circumstantial evidence. We have to cite the source in lawsuits and understand the rationale and motives behind those that may seek to discrete Obama. At the same time, we must acknowledge that it imperative to understand that we all have a vested interest in making sure that we have a President who meets all of the qualifications set forth in the Constitution- including the natural born citizen clause.
I believe in God even tho I have never seen him/her/it. I believe Obama’s birth certificate exists, even though I have never seen it either. But God is an entity, Obama a mere mortal, fallible like all men. His fallibility should not come at the expense of America in not producing a verifiable, vaulted copy of his birth certificate.
The amount of circumstantial evidence has begun to add up and many more “regular” citizens who do not make a habit of wearing tin foil on there head are beginning to look again at Obama’s omissions. From the popular No Quarter http://www.noquarterusa.net/blog/2008/10/13/updated-a-dangerous-mixture-of-lies-and-omissions-obama-ayers-wright-and-farrakhan/ to a whole list of books available at http://shop.wnd.com/store/subdept.asp?SUBDEPARTMENT_ID=131 we begin to ascertain that it is more than the fringe who have misgivings.
Reviewing a lot of the rumors that began to surface in August 2008, is http://pajamasmedia.com/blog/obama-did-obama-actually-register-for-selective-service/ and months later we still have unanswered questions that keep coming up. A question arose about Obama’s registration with the Selective Service and that he may not have done so as required by law. As Debbie Schlussel points out, “The official campaign for President may be over. But Barack Obama’s Selective Service registration card and accompanying documents show that questions about him are not only NOT over, but if the signature on the document is in fact his, our next Commander-in-Chief may have committed a federal crime in 2008, well within the statute of limitations on the matter. If it is not his, then it’s proof positive that our next Commander-in-Chief never registered with the Selective Service as required by law. http://www.debbieschlussel.com/archives/2008/11/exclusive_did_n.html She refers to a copy of his Registration that seems to have discrepancies. Obama’s COLB has discrepancies and that leads us to ask for clarification once again from Obama.
There are 29 subjects of controversy that Obama identifies on his website. http://fightthesmears.com/ TWENTY-NINE times he has felt compelled to address issues like Reverend Wright, William Ayers, Rashid Khalidi, his COLB, and to defend himself. There is no mention regarding his Selective Service issues.
Being so entrenched to the road to the White House and secure that all of the smears are false, Obama has apparently decided not to attend his grandmother’s funeral memorial service in Hawaii. http://theindependentview.com/?p=353 “Hawaii residents are invited to a tribute service tomorrow for Madelyn Payne Dunham, President-elect Barack Obama’s grandmother. Dunham, 86, died two nights before her grandson became the first African-American and the first Hawaii-born person elected President.” http://www.starbulletin.com/news/20081113_Dunham_service_set_for_tomorrow.html
I find it an odd show of respect for the woman who helped raise him, to not bother with her funeral. I recall his statements regarding Reverend Wright , “I can no more disown him,” he told an audience in Philadelphia of his former pastor, “than I can my white grandmother — a woman who helped raise me, a woman who sacrificed again and again for me, a woman who loves me as much as she loves anything in this world, but a woman who once confessed her fear of black men who passed by her on the street, and who on more than one occasion has uttered racial or ethnic stereotypes that made me cringe.” http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20081021/ap_on_el_pr/obama_grandmother
Obama probably doesn’t have a tin foil hat, I don’t and most people do not. People who have and wear tin foil hats may look stupid outside of Halloween, but I doubt they are. http://tinfoilhats.newsvine.com/ has some interesting insights on recent issues, rumors, and topics in the news.
Hats off to those seeking truth, justice and liberty for all; even if it is under an Obama administration.
