Feedback responses Sam Sewell’s interview with Bill Clade on BlogTalk Radio





Feedback responses Sam Sewell’s interview with Bill Clade on BlogTalk Radio

Sam Sewell is very knowledgeable.  He can speak authoritatively on a wide spectrum of topics.
June - Florida

Great interview Sam!!!
Sandy – California

I have never heard anybody make clear the relationship between religion and government until I heard these two guys.
Lois – Oklahoma

No wonder the Founding Fathers put all those “The Government Shall Not” clauses in the Constitution.  The Government is the “beast” the Bible warns us about.
Jean – Florida

Rev. Sam Sewell sure knows his Biblical scholarship.  I hadn’t heard the terms eixegesis “lead into” and exegesis “lead out of” since I was in seminary.  Politically conservative leaders lead us into the meaning of the Constitution.  Liberal leaders lead us out of the meaning of the Constitution.
Pastor Gene – Florida

I listened to the whole 90 minutes twice.
Julie – Kansas City

I kept repeating one section until I could write down this quote from Rev. Sewell, "Conservatives are enemies of the Government. Liberals are enemies of the nation, because they are not enemies of the Government."
Kevin – Indiana

Do It Yourself Ballot Challenge Now Focused on State Capitols


Do It Yourself Ballot Challenge Now Focused on State Capitols

Jerry Collette’s ballot challenge was transferred to Tallahassee. On Thursday, July 26th, 2012, even though Collette presented a very well documented petition enumerating the reasons why the venue for his case should remain in Pasco County, the judge, in a matter of seconds, still refused to reconsider his previous order for venue change.

“Most likely, my case, once moved to Tallahassee, will be assigned to the same biased, liberal judge who has already ruled once against Mike Voeltz,” reports Collette. “Since the defendants were ordered to pay filing fees, we may still proceed!! If we had been required to pay the refiling fees, I might have decided to put my full energies into other strategies.”

I am encouraging others to file similar cases. While my case was the prototype, I never intended my case to be the only one to proceed on this theory. The Do It Yourself Ballot Challenge Kit assumes that most judges will not allow ballot challenges to proceed. However, we only need one courageous judge who will actually hear a case on its merits!”

Sam Sewell, director of the Florida Ballot Challenge, keeps reminding us that, “If we file enough similar cases, then we have a better chance of finding such a judge.”

We are, however, recommending a slight change of strategy. Instead of filing in your local county, we are encouraging you to file in your state capitol, and to name your state’s officials in your case. The election is getting closer. In our goal to stop Obama and the Democratic Party, we need to get the courts to stop the election officials from putting the name of any candidate on the ballot who has not been properly vetted. In most states, when state officials are named as defendants, that filing needs to be done in the state capitol. 

We will update more as this strategy develops. Meanwhile, if you are willing to file in your state, PLEASE contact us right away, so we can get you filed while there is still time! WE NEED 49 PATRIOTS who will step up to the plate for our country! Time is short! Do you want to live another four years under the current administration? YOUR case could make the difference! We’ll help you file! Jerry can be contacted at: jerrycollette@gmail.com

You can also show your support by sending checks to help with filing charges for those who are willing to file, but unable to cover the fees.

Crime of the Century

There was a young man named Obama
Who claimed his job through his Mama
“They say my Daddy was foreign
I Don’t know where I was born”
So he got fired to finish the drama

NOAA exaggerated the extent of late 20th century global warming. In fact, it has doubled it.

http://blogs.telegraph.co.uk/news/jamesdelingpole/100173174/global-warming-yeah-right/
Have a look at this chart. It tells you pretty much all you need to know about the much-anticipated scoop by Anthony Watts of Watts Up With That?
What it means, in a nutshell, is that the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) – the US government body in charge of America's temperature record, has systematically exaggerated the extent of late 20th century global warming. In fact, it has doubled it.
Is this a case of deliberate fraud by Warmist scientists hell bent on keeping their funding gravy train rolling? Well, after what we saw in Climategate anything is possible. (I mean it's not like NOAA is run by hard-left eco activists, is it?) But I think more likely it is a case of confirmation bias. The Warmists who comprise the climate scientist establishment spend so much time communicating with other warmists and so little time paying attention to the views of dissenting scientists such as Henrik Svensmark – or Fred Singer or Richard Lindzen or indeed Anthony Watts – that it simply hasn't occurred to them that their temperature records need adjusting downwards not upwards.
What Watts has conclusively demonstrated is that most of the weather stations in the US are so poorly sited that their temperature data is unreliable. Around 90 per cent have had their temperature readings skewed by the Urban Heat Island effect. While he has suspected this for some time what he has been unable to do until his latest, landmark paper (co-authored with Evan Jones of New York, Stephen McIntyre of Toronto, Canada, and Dr. John R. Christy from the Department of Atmospheric Science, University of Alabama, Huntsville) is to put precise figures on the degree of distortion involved.
For the full story go to Watts Up With That NOW!
There is, of course, one very, very sad aspect to this story – and truly it pains me to mention it but journalistic duty compels me to do so – and that's the dampening effect it may have on the grandstanding of a hapless fellow by the name of Professor Richard Muller.
Poor Professor Muller has been telling anyone who'll listen – his amen corner in greeny-lefty MSM, mainly – that as a former "skeptic" he has now been forced by weight of evidence to conclude that global warming is definitely man-made and there has been lots of it (a whole 1.5 degrees C – Wow! that's like almost as much as you'd get if you drove from London to Manchester!!!) since 1750. Tragically – as Watts has very reluctantly and by-no-means-experiencing-any-kind-of-Schadenfreudehad to point out is that the data used by Muller to draw these conclusions was unreliable to the point of utter uselessness.
So, in the spirit of magnanimity in total crushing victory I would urge readers of this blog not to crow too much about the devastating blow Watts's findings will have on the Guardian's battalion of environment correspondents, on the New York Times, on NOAA, on Al Gore, on the Prince of Wales, on the Royal Society, on Professor Muller, or on any of the other rent-seekers, grant-grubbers, eco-loons, crony capitalists, junk scientists, UN apparatchiks, EU technocrats, hideous porcine blobsters, demented squawking parrots, life-free loser trolls, paid CACC-amites and True Believers in the Great Global Warming Religion.
That would be plain wrong.

HAT TIP TO AKRAY

I got punked.  The photo is bogus.

The information below the photo is valid.
The Vetting: It's Obama, Not Ayers; Famous Photo Taken by Anti-Military Friend
Barack Obama was at Columbia University from 1981 until 1983. Bill Ayers would have been 37 to 39 years old. Does that look like a 37 year old man to you? The photo's not even from Columbia University, it's at Occidental College.























This monster hit was first published April 21, 2009  and quickly out distanced posts made much earlier in the year.
The “OMG” article has been revised and updated several times and continues to grow in popularity.

“It Worked?” Is Obama deliberately harming America?


“It Worked?”

“Today’s weak GDP number is just more devastating news for struggling American families. Our economy is growing far too slowly, proving President Obama’s lack of focus on jobs is taking its toll,” said RNC Chairman Reince Priebus.

“The president claims to be fighting for middle class jobs, but he has not had a Daily Economic Briefing on his official schedule in over a year. He also has not bothered to meet with his Jobs Council in over six months, but he did manage to attend over 110 fundraisers and play 10 rounds of golf in that time. Clearly, he has revealed his true priorities.

“Instead of spending his time fighting for American jobs, President Obama is working desperately to save his own. As a result, 23 million Americans are struggling for work. We need a new president who understands how the economy works and who will make job creation his number one priority. Mitt Romney will be that president.”

Evidence Obama Ineligibility Movement is Winning - UPDATED JULY 26 -2012 -


Here is some of the evidence that the ineligibility movement has been victorious, in spite of all the obstacles erected by “officialdom” and Obama supporters:

·       The issue is still here!  That is a victory of persistence over corruption!   Before the 2008 election the pioneers of the Ineligibility Movement began writing articles and filing legal papers.  Attorney Phillip Berg filed a complaint in federal district court on August 21, 2008, against Democratic Party presidential nominee Senator Barack Obama, the Democratic National Committee and the Federal Election Commission, alleging that Obama was born in Mombasa, Kenya and that the "Certification of Live Birth" on Obama's website is a forgery. The main value of what is being done is to expose the corruption of “Obama” and his enablers, and publicize it as widely as possible.  Your help is needed for the latter, since the media and officials want this news buried deeply.  Keep up the good work with emails, forums and web sites. In spite of all of the efforts to crush the ineligibility issue, it is very much alive and thriving, and there are still many legal cases that are active.  A clear victory for the birthers!

·       Because of the unresponsiveness of the ruling elite to the ineligibility issue, the national consciousness has become aware that the media, the courts, and the politicians are corrupt beyond redemption.  A paradigm shift is happening.  The national political perception is no longer one political party against the other, but the ruling elite vs. the citizens.  Have you read the Declaration of Independence recently?  Many of the complaints our founding fathers voiced against the tyranny of King George are now being seen as present in the tyranny of the political and media ruling elite against today’s citizens.  That is a victory of awareness.  Another clear Victory!

·       Millions of dollars have been spent by Obama and the Democratic Party to keep secrets from the citizens, stamp out the ineligibility movement, and defend against lawsuits.  If it were not for the ineligibility movement, all that money would be available to help reelect Obama.  The courageous patriots of the first American Revolution were mostly volunteers and were a small force compared to the British Empire.  They knew that attacking the enemy’s resources was often a more effective tactic than attacking their army.  Likewise the ineligibility movement has been very effective in depleting Obama’s resources.  In the Korean War the F-86 Sabre Jet had a ten to one kill ratio over the MIGs.  Dollar for dollar, the ineligibility movement has a higher kill ratio than the F-86.  For every dollar we spend, they spend thousands.  This is an economic victory.  Keep that in mind when making contributions to Florida Ballot Challenge.  To my thinking, contributing to the ineligibility movement is the most efficient dollar value for a patriotic contribution.  Every dollar you send us takes thousands of dollars out of Obama’s corrupt treasure chest.  This is again a clear Victory!


Many of the national opinion polls show that a large segment of the citizens still have questions about Obama’s questionable history, and they still want answers!  In a July 2012 poll 45% of the general public and 69% of Republicans have doubts about Obama’s birthplace.  Many voters have been influenced away from voting for Obama because of the obvious cover up of Obama’s past.  Just type these search words into Google and see for yourself: obama eligible poll.  The ineligibility movement has educated the voters beyond the circumstances of Obama’s birth and the citizenship of his father.  Now people are aware that Obama’s history of education, medical history, travel and passport history, the history of his parent’s marriage and divorce, adoption records, the records of the Illinois bar, Illinois State Senate records, his beliefs, past associates, personal behavior and many other mysteries still remain unresolved.  The uncertainty created by Obama’s cover up will significantly affect voting outcome.  Most presidential elections are decided by a very narrow margin. Given that about half the American people are uncertain about Obama’s history, the 2012 vote will be more influenced by the ineligibility movement than any demographic group.  That is a victory of the think for themselves” citizens over the ambiguous cover ups offered by the ruling elite!  Yet another clear victory for the birthers!

·      Evidence Obama Ineligibility Movement is Winning

I have a question for my readers.  If the ineligibility movement was not scoring significant victories why would the Democratic Party and Obama’s supporters be trying so hard to silence the issue?  Why not encourage the legal establishment to rule on the evidence and the law, rather than avoiding the facts?  Why not encourage the Supreme Court to rule, rather than evade?  Why not encourage a public open discussion of the ineligibility issue?  Why not have public debates on national television?  Why not release the many documents that reveal Obama’s history?  Why not give millions of citizens the information they want?  Or, why not simply ignore it?  Why indeed?  I know why.  The “birthers” are winning and Obama can’t afford to give them any more ammunition!

Cold Case Posse calls Obama’s birth certificate ‘fictitious’


Cold Case Posse calls Obama’s birth certificate ‘fictitious’ 

BY LINDA BENTLEY

‘Document could only have been created with ‘substantial human intervention’
lisa allenPHOENIX – Just prior to the start of Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s July 17 press conference, MCSO Director of Media Relations Lisa Allen (l) instructed the media that they would only be answering questions about the findings pertinent to the Cold Case Posse’s investigation and stated, “The media’s contempt has been duly noted.”

Arpaio told the media, as he did in March, the investigation was initiated after receiving a petition signed by 250 citizens to look into allegations of fraud surrounding President Obama’s birth certificate and the original intent of the investigation was to clear the president.

However, he said, the Cold Case Posse found too many problems.

Arpaio said they reported their initial findings in March after a six-month investigation and there was probable cause the long form birth certificate released on the White House’s website on April 27, 2011 was fraudulent as was Obama’s Selective Service registration.

mike zulloBefore turning over the conference to Cold Case Posse lead investigator Mike Zullo (l), Arpaio said, “We uncovered other issues that should be of national concern.”

Zullo stated a lot of the information was put together after their trip to Hawaii, which was when he said “everything started to jell.”

He said they located Verna K.L. Lee, now 95, a registrar whose signature appears on the bottom of the birth certificate and who coded the original document.

According to Zullo, after Lee explained the process and what the penciled in number codes in the various fields meant, “From a forensic document perspective, it is not possible to come to what was presented without substantial human intervention.”

He said the layers in the document were not consistent with optimization – they were consistent with tampering.

“I am fully persuaded, we can prove the document was altered,” said Zullo, adding, “It cannot survive judicial scrutiny.”

He said they learned, from talking to Lee, all the penciled in numbers on the birth certificate were codes for vital statistics for the federal government and the coding numbers seen on the president’s long form birth certificate (LFBC) are inconsistent with the coding responses required by the federal government to match the information presented.

And the incorrect codes indicate Obama’s LFBC has been altered or amended.

According to Lee, each birth certificate was coded by hand and was then checked by another employee.

According to Zullo, Obama could not have been born at Kapai’olani Medical Center and have the birth certificate number it has.

Obama was born the day before the Nordyke Twins, who were born at Kapai’olani, yet his LFBC has a higher number.

According to Lee, birth certificates came in from different regions and the birth certificates were coded by hand and batched and numbered by region in order of date and time of birth at the end of each month.

So, a number could appear out of sequence if it was from a different batch, meaning it came from an outlying area. In other words, Obama’s LFBC could not be assigned that number if he were born at Kapai’olani.

cold case chartThe number one appears on the Nordyke twins’ birth certificate for father’s race, whereas a number nine appears on Obama’s.

The code nine was for “unknown or not stated,” which indicates that field should have been blank.

However the field was not blank, it says “African,” a term not used in 1961. The code would have been a number two and “Negro” would have been entered.

Zullo emphasized, “You cannot have a code ‘not provided’ with information stated in that box. That doesn’t happen. The document has been tampered with.”

From 1955 until 1982, a person could declare a birth and be issued a birth certificate regardless if they were born abroad to foreigners. According to Zullo, a lot of foreign citizens took advantage of Hawaii’s lax laws, especially people from Japan.

In 1982, Hawaii expanded that program to make it even easier for people to obtain a Hawaiian birth certificate and de facto citizenship.

After spending some time in the law library, Dr. Jerome Corsi, who accompanied Zullo to Hawaii (at his own expense), located a March 1, 1982 letter from Hawaii Director of Health George Yuen to State Rep. Herbert Segwa, Chairman of the Committee on Health, regarding HB 3016-82, relating to birth certificates.

Yuen wrote, “This bill would require the Department of Health to issue birth certificates to children born or adopted anywhere in the world, if their parents were legal residents of the Territory or state of Hawaii and paid income taxes in Hawaii at the time of their birth or adoption.

“The Department supports this measure but wishes to point out that such a new activity could have a workload/budgetary impact in the Delayed Registration Section of the Vital Records Program.”

Hawaii’s birth certificate program required birth certificates to be issued to individuals, regardless of where they were born, whose parents were residents, not necessarily citizens, and paid income tax, thereby bypassing immigration laws.

Zullo said they could find no other agency anywhere in the country that has such a law.
He said, “The law is in conflict with immigration law. The law allows an adult to come in and make a declaration,” even for himself.

“This is a problem,” said Zullo. “Lay the partisan issues aside. This is rampant birth certificate fraud.”

When U.S. citizens are born overseas to U.S. citizen parents, Zullo said the federal government issues a birth certificate stating the child is a U.S. citizen born overseas.

Hawaii law states the Department of Health “shall issue” birth certificates based on such declarations, which Zullo said is in direct conflict with the U.S. Supreme Court’s recent rulings.

Zullo told about the total lack of cooperation they received in Hawaii by the Department of Health and Kapai’olani Hospital.

He said, “If the Department of Health in Hawaii didn’t create this PDF, then it’s a forgery.
Any way you twist and turn with this document, it is in conflict with itself. There is not a document examiner in the nation than can authenticate it.”

Zullo also said they’ve received information indicating some of Obama’s family photos have been altered and question who his real parents may be.

Zullo ended the presentation with an 11-second video clip of Obama saying, “What’s important is if you are running for president is that the American people know who you are and what you’ve done and that you’re an open book.”

Arpaio said, “Show us the microfilm and we’ll all go back home.”

morgan lowe and other reportersMorgan Loew (standing, left) with CBS affiliate Channel 5 asked, “How do you expect any of us to believe any of this?” and accused Cold Case Posse lead investigator Mike Zullo and reporter/author Dr. Jerome Corsi of being conspiracy theorists.

Arpaio responded, “You’re trying to go after the messenger … These are the facts. Mike Zullo has done a great job. My mission – We wanted to clear the president of the United States. It didn’t happen that way."

Melissa Blasius from Channel 12 News NBC affiliate said the investigation “lacks facts,” and, with little success, tried to poke holes in Zullo’s credentials.

Zullo responded, “This document is fictitious and the president took ownership of it. The Department of Health did not create this document.”

Arpaio said he would like Congress to address this issue as well as how easy it is to get a birth certificate in Hawaii.

Time to Repost - Blank US Birth Certificate form from 1961 - Originally posted July of 2009


Blank Birth Certificate Form - AKA Obama fill it in!



CLICK FOR FULL IMAGE


In 1961, the Public Health Services, U. S Department of Health, Education and Welfare, National Center for Health Statistics, National Vital Statistics Division published the "Vital Statistics of the United States

Here is a copy of the Standard Certificate of Live Birth. The "Standard Certificate of Live Birth" contains the father's race in block #8 and the mother's race in block #13. Hawaii's "Certificate of Live Birth" contains the the father's race in block #13a and the mother's race in block #12a.


Now, here comes the good stuff. Page 231 contains the requirements for "Race and color."
"Births in the United States in 1961 are classified for vital statistics into white, Negro, American Indian, Chinese, Japanese, Aleut, Eskimo, Hawaiian and Part-Hawaiian (combined), and "other nonwhite."

Do you see a classification for "African?" I certainly don't.

Now, let's look at the document that Obama has provided for certifying his eligibility for the Office of the President of the United States and that is displayed on Annenberg FatCheck.org.
FATHER'S RACE is "African" -- an incorrect entry for that data field.

And of course, other birth certificates from that era are filled out properly.

Just a typo? I don't think so. The Obot who created the bogus Certification of Live Birth just couldn't type the word "Negro." Negro is just not politically correct, don'tcha know.
Oh, what tangled webs we weave, when first we practice to deceive.

This information was provided by Steve Cee, a genealogist, who has also authored this new analysis (graphics-heavy MS Word document) of the Obama Certification of Live Birth (COLB). Steve's contribution adds to Dr. Ron Polarik's extensive forensic examination.
Obama's COLB is demonstrably counterfeit. It's a fraud -- as is Obama.

Hawaii Attorney General Ignoring Real Issue in Obama Birth Certificate Investigation


Hawaii Attorney General Ignoring Real Issue in Obama Birth Certificate Investigation


click on image to enlarge
BY MIKI BOOTH -

I read with wry amusement Joshua Wisch’s July 19, 2012, article in Hawaii Reporter entitled Hawaii Attorney General Responds to Sheriff Arpaio’s Allegations About Obama’s Birth Certificate.

Predictably, Wisch threw together a few paragraphs of mumbo jumbo, added a few links to provide cover and adamantly declared the allegations from “a sheriff in Arizona” to be “untrue, misinformed, and misconstrue Hawaii law.”

I could almost visualize Wisch stamping his foot and swearing “dammit” as he again took a stab at damage control after Sheriff Arpaio’s July 17th press conference in Maricopa County, Arizona.

Completely ignoring the real issue that an electronic forgery of an alleged birth record for Obama is posted on the White House.gov website, Wisch is playing the typical con game of “look here, not there” providing cover where needed in Obama’s narrative.

But, I’ve been watching Joshua Wisch and some of his other cronies in Neil Abercrombie’s cabinet and I can tell you, as a former lifelong Hawaii Islander, the people of Hawaii have been had. Lt. Governor, Brian Schatz, pulled a fast one to make sure Obama was not bumped off the Hawaii presidential ballot in 2008, because of wording left off of the Official Certification of Nomination (OCON) form signed by Nancy Pelosi, Chair of the Democratic National Convention.

When the problem was pointed out to them by the Hawaii Election Board, Obama left the campaign and made a hasty trip to Hawaii to meet with Brian Schatz who was then Chairman of the Hawaii DNC. What resulted was a new OCON that Nancy Pelosi signed by collusion. What were the words left off of the original OCON that Hawaii Election Board refused to accept but was accepted by all of the other 49 states? “...and that the following candidates for President and Vice President are legally qualified to serve under the provisions of the United States Constitution.”

As an unofficial watchdog of Hawaii politics, I find it less than credible for Hawaii officials like Joshua Wisch, former Chair of Howard Dean for President, HI Chapter and Punahou alumni and former head of the DNC Brian Schatz to cover up and distract from legitimate charges of possible fraud. They continue to use their authority to mislead the people of Hawaii by obfuscation and outright deceit protecting a man who has spent millions to seal all of his historical records, the least of which is his birth record represented by a forgery.

PROOF! ESTABLISHMENT MEDIA CONTROLLED – A COMMENTARY BY JOSEPH FARAH


Proof! Establishment media controlled – A Commentary by Joseph Farah

Joseph Farah is founder, editor and CEO of WND and a nationally syndicated columnist with Creators Syndicate. He is the author or co-author of 13 books, including his latest, "The Tea Party Manifesto," and his classic, "Taking America Back," now in its third edition and 14th printing. Farah is the former editor of the legendary Sacramento Union and other major-market dailies.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 Less ↑
There was a rather low-key confession made in the New York Times last week that deserves to be blared throughout this country so that every American understands what they are reading in the establishment’s ultra-controlled, government-managed “press” – and I use that last word loosely indeed.
The admission came in the form of a story by Jeremy Peters on the politics page of the Times July 16. I’ve been waiting for others to point it out, discuss it, debate it, express shock and exasperation over it. But I’ve waited for naught.
What this shocking story reveals is that even I – one of the kingpins of the new media and a refugee from the state-controlled spin machine – underestimated the utter and total corruption of the euphemistically called “mainstream press.”
It shows that most – not some – members of the print media establishment with access to the White House submit their copy to government officials for review, “correction” and approval before it reaches the American people!

Here are some key excerpts from the piece, if you think I’m exaggerating:
  • “The quotations come back redacted, stripped of colorful metaphors, colloquial language and anything even mildly provocative.”
  • “They are sent by e-mail from the Obama headquarters in Chicago to reporters who have interviewed campaign officials under one major condition: the press office has veto power over what statements can be quoted and attributed by name.”
  • “Most reporters, desperate to pick the brains of the president’s top strategists, grudgingly agree. After the interviews, they review their notes, check their tape recorders and send in the juiciest sound bites for review. The verdict from the campaign – an operation that prides itself on staying consistently on script – is often no, Barack Obama does not approve this message.”
  • “Now, with a millisecond Twitter news cycle and an unforgiving, gaffe-obsessed media culture, politicians and their advisers are routinely demanding that reporters allow them final editing power over any published quotations.”
  • “Quote approval is standard practice for the Obama campaign, used by many top strategists and almost all mid-level aides in Chicago and at the White House – almost anyone other than spokesmen who are paid to be quoted. (And sometimes it applies even to them.) It is also commonplace throughout Washington and on the campaign trail.”
  • “Many journalists spoke about the editing only if granted anonymity, an irony that did not escape them.”
  • “From Capitol Hill to the Treasury Department, interviews granted only with quote approval have become the default position. Those officials who dare to speak out of school, but fearful of making the slightest off-message remark, shroud even the most innocuous and anodyne quotations in anonymity by insisting they be referred to as a ‘top Democrat’ or a ‘Republican strategist.’”
  • “Those [reporters] who did speak on the record said the restrictions seem only to be growing. ‘It’s not something I’m particularly proud of because there’s a part of me that says, Don’t do it, don’t agree to their terms,’ said Major Garrett, a correspondent for The National Journal.”
  • “It was difficult to find a news outlet that had not agreed to quote approval, albeit reluctantly. Organizations like Bloomberg, The Washington Post, Vanity Fair, Reuters and The New York Times have all consented to interviews under such terms.”
I could go on and on. I urge you to read the entire story. This may be the most important story broken by the New York Times in years.
What it means is this: When Americans read these reports – whether in newspapers, wire services or on the Internet – they are not really reading news stories at all. They are reading approved, pre-packaged press releases from the government and politicians. But, even worse, they are not labeled as such. They are labeled as actual news.
That’s how low the national press establishment has descended. And, when you read the story in its full context, you will understand that the concerns expressed about this practice by those submitting themselves to it are not ethical concerns. They are not concerns for the truth. They are concerns about their own convenience and for the loss of “color” in their stories.
Let me state what I hope is obvious to all reading this column: This sort of willing capitulation to government censorship was not the norm five years ago, 10 years ago, 20 years ago or 30 years ago. This is a new phenomenon – chilling and alarming to an old-timer like me who would never agree to submit his copy for approval to politicians.
These so-called journalists are selling their ethical and moral souls for access to politicians. And this practice raises expectations by politicians that they can routinely manipulate the press to their advantage. That makes the job of real journalists – independent reporters faithful to their craft – even more difficult, because they will be shut out from access.
It reminds me of the fact that, just last week, WND was denied credentials to cover the Democratic National Convention. Why do you suppose what has become one of the largest and most influential news agencies in the country would be denied access to the convention floor? Simply because the Democrats know we won’t play by their rules of control like the members of the establishment press club.
All I can say about these people I once considered “colleagues” is that I am so ashamed of them. I am mortified. They are humiliating themselves and a vital institution for any free society.
It seems the biggest threat to the American tradition of a free and independent press is not government coercion. It’s the willing submission of the press to being handled and managed by government and politicians.

Why You Should Read Strategy Update for Florida Ballot Challenge


Here is some of the evidence that the ineligibility movement has been victorious, in spite of all the obstacles erected by “officialdom” and Obama supporters:
·       The issue is still here!  That is a victory of persistence over corruption!   Before the 2008 election the pioneers of the Ineligibility Movement began writing articles and filing legal papers.  Attorney Phillip Berg filed a complaint in federal district court on August 21, 2008, against Democratic Party presidential nominee Senator Barack Obama, the Democratic National Committee and the Federal Election Commission, alleging that Obama was born in Mombasa, Kenya and that the "Certification of Live Birth" on Obama's website is a forgery. The main value of what is being done is to expose the corruption of “Obama” and his enablers, and publicize it as widely as possible.  Your help is needed for the latter, since the media and officials want this news buried deeply.  Keep up the good work with emails, forums and web sites. In spite of all of the efforts to crush the ineligibility issue, it is very much alive and thriving, and there are still many legal cases that are active.  A clear victory for the birthers!

·       Because of the unresponsiveness of the ruling elite to the ineligibility issue, the national consciousness has become aware that the media, the courts, and the politicians are corrupt beyond redemption.  A paradigm shift is happening.  The national political perception is no longer one political party against the other, but the ruling elite vs. the citizens.  Have you read the Declaration of Independence recently?  Many of the complaints our founding fathers voiced against the tyranny of King George are now being seen as present in the tyranny of the political and media ruling elite against today’s citizens.  That is a victory of awareness.  Another clear Victory!

·       Millions of dollars have been spent by Obama and the Democratic Party to keep secrets from the citizens, stamp out the ineligibility movement, and defend against lawsuits.  If it were not for the ineligibility movement, all that money would be available to help reelect Obama.  The courageous patriots of the first American Revolution were mostly volunteers and were a small force compared to the British Empire.  They knew that attacking the enemy’s resources was often a more effective tactic than attacking their army.  Likewise the ineligibility movement has been very effective in depleting Obama’s resources.  In the Korean War the F-86 Sabre Jet had a ten to one kill ratio over the MIGs.  Dollar for dollar, the ineligibility movement has a higher kill ratio than the F-86.  For every dollar we spend, they spend thousands.  This is an economic victory.  Keep that in mind when making contributions to Florida Ballot Challenge.  To my thinking, contributing to the ineligibility movement is the most efficient dollar value for a patriotic contribution.  Every dollar you send us takes thousands of dollars out of Obama’s corrupt treasure chest.  This is again a clear Victory!


Many of the national opinion polls show that a large segment of the citizens still have questions about Obama’s questionable history, and they still want answers!  In a July 2012 poll 45% of the general public and 69% of Republicans have doubts about Obama’s birthplace.  Many voters have been influenced away from voting for Obama because of the obvious cover up of Obama’s past.  Just type these search words into Google and see for yourself: obama eligible poll.  The ineligibility movement has educated the voters beyond the circumstances of Obama’s birth and the citizenship of his father.  Now people are aware that Obama’s history of education, medical history, travel and passport history, the history of his parent’s marriage and divorce, adoption records, the records of the Illinois bar, Illinois State Senate records, his beliefs, past associates, personal behavior and many other mysteries still remain unresolved.  The uncertainty created by Obama’s cover up will significantly affect voting outcome.  Most presidential elections are decided by a very narrow margin. Given that about half the American people are uncertain about Obama’s history, the 2012 vote will be more influenced by the ineligibility movement than any demographic group.  That is a victory of the think for themselves” citizens over the ambiguous cover ups offered by the ruling elite!  Yet another clear victory for the birthers!

·      Evidence Obama Ineligibility Movement is Winning
I have a question for my readers.  If the ineligibility movement was not scoring significant victories why would the Democratic Party and Obama’s supporters be trying so hard to silence the issue?  Why not encourage the legal establishment to rule on the evidence and the law, rather than avoiding the facts?  Why not encourage the Supreme Court to rule, rather than evade?  Why not encourage a public open discussion of the ineligibility issue?  Why not have public debates on national television?  Why not release the many documents that reveal Obama’s history?  Why not give millions of citizens the information they want?  Or, why not simply ignore it?  Why indeed?  I know why.  The “birthers” are winning and Obama can’t afford to give them any more ammunition!
