Obama Ineligibility Concerns Hit the Billboards

Wearying of the irresponsible media blackout on the issue of Obama’s constitutional eligibility to be President as well as the reluctance of the political elites to soberly delve into the issue, a billboard blitz around the country is now underway.

The architect of this campaign, an entrepreneur named Joseph Farah, puts it this way: “As Obama transforms this country from [a] self-governing constitutional republic to one governed by a central ruling elite, the simple fact remains that no controlling legal authority has established that he is indeed a ‘natural born citizen’ as the Constitution requires. Obama’s promises of transparency have become a bad joke as he continues to hide simple, innocuous documents like his birth certificate and his student records.”

And since the media, the so-called “fourth estate”, has avoided coverage of the issue, Mr. Farah, with the help of public donations, is now taking on that watchdog role. (Donations for the billboard campaign are being sent to “WND, PO Box 1627, Medford, OR 97501".)

You will recall that Article 2, Section 1 of the Constitution stipulates that “no Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of the Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President.”

“We the People”, the de facto plaintiffs in numerous lawsuits going forward around the country intended to compel Obama to produce documentary evidence of his presidential eligibility, have been continually stonewalled by Obama’s legal team. Thus, in the absence of documentary proof to the contrary, the logical conclusion remains inescapable: Obama is manifestly ineligible and is, therefore, a usurper.

To my way of thinking, this is not a shortsighted, self-serving partisan issue. The continual legal delays and needless foot-dragging constitute an obscene breach of faith on the part of Obama and his legal team and, as such, their callous obstruction presents a serious threat to our national security. (You are invited to read my previous posts on the eligibility issue.)

“Where’s the Birth Certificate?” billboard space is being negotiated in Sacramento, Los Angeles, Houston, Dallas, San Francisco, New York, New Jersey, Des Moines, Seattle and other areas around the country. As Mr. Farah remarked, “[Obama] must be asked to produce [his birth certificate] at every turn.” And at nearly every turn, so he will, it seems.

For the sake of our country, this monumentally serious constitutional matter must be properly put behind us once and for all. But, for that to happen the Obama Team needs to be forthcoming with the evidence of his eligibility. A very simple matter, really. But, tragically for the country and the Constitution, all along that has clearly not been their intention. Public opinion now appears to be the only possible remedy.
