The other shoe has dropped. As I predicted in a previous column:
When truth is being suppressed, people who refuse to accept the deception have every reason to be grateful to a well-known public figure who loudly trumpets his similar skepticism. But once the grateful public gathers behind him in sufficient numbers, his response to events can be portrayed as authoritative. Then it’s just a matter of trotting out some contrivance intended to placate public opinion, one that superficially appears to resolve the matter, but without addressing what’s really at stake. By the time the bellwether conveniently announces that he’s satisfied, the grateful grassroots support he has received will have made him enough of a public opinion authority to discourage and stigmatize those tempted to challenge him. This will assure that, unlike Don Quixote’s pasteboard helmet, the placatory contrivance is never made to undergo anything like real scrutiny.
On Wednesday this week, after refusing the simple request for several years; after expending several million dollars in lawyer’s fees to battle anyone who dared pursue it; after vindictively engineering the court-martial and imprisonment of an honorable soldier who stood by his sworn oath to defend the Constitution of the United States — Barack Obama finally gave in and released what purports to be a copy of his full and complete birth certificate.
This constitutes incontrovertible proof that he, his media claque (including snopes.com, etc.), and the gullible or cowardly politicians (Democrat and Republican alike) who repeatedly claimed that he had already done so, were lying. The people they derided and ridiculed as “birthers” were telling the truth. The Certification of Live Birth published on the Internet, which these liars repeatedly referred to as his birth certificate, was an abridged certification that omitted the vital information needed to verify that he was born on U.S. soil, and could therefore claim, jus soli, to be a citizen at birth.
On January 25, 2008, before the Super Tuesday Presidential primary vote on February 5, 2008, the New York Times endorsed Senator John McCain for President.
Several days after the Super Tuesday vote, Republican candidate Mitt Romney withdrew from the race and John McCain was declared by the press as the presumptive Republican nominee for President.
On February 28, 2008, about the time Barack Obama began to overtake Hillary Clinton in the Democratic Presidential primary, the New York Times published an article questioning McCain’s eligibility to be President according to the natural born citizen clause of Article II, Section I of the Constitution.
Needless to say, the Times story was immediately followed by numerous other news items questioning McCain’s eligibility.
This past week Obama’s house of cards started tumbling down. Harry Alford, the CEO of the National Black Chamber of Commerce spoke candidly to Laura Ingraham about the president. Alford was the same person who famously accused Barbara Boxer of playing racial politics during a climate change hearing in 2009.
Kudos to Ingraham for not interrupting the CEO during her Friday radio show. When she asked the entrepreneur why he voted for Obama he said “because he was black.” The audio is a must-hear coming at the end of a very long week for the One.
Some quotes from Alford:
I am going to have to go to war with Obama.
Obama is anti-business and he is starting to look ‘Marxist’ to me.
Voting for Obama was the worst mistake I ever made in my life.
The audacity of ‘Hope’ is not hiring black folk.
Obama said he wants the price of gasoline to go to $5 to $7 so that we can reduce our carbon footprint and he is doing it.
This guy (President Obama) is dangerous.
In an attempt to release the news of Osama bin Laden’s death quickly late Sunday night, MSNBC correspondent Norah O’Donnell accidentally reported on Twitter that “Obama” had been “killed” instead.
“Obama shot and killed,” Norah O’Donnell posted on Twitter, citing NBC Chief Pentagon Correspondent Jim Miklaszewski as her source.
It was announced Sunday that Osama Bin Laden, who orchestrated the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, was killed by American forces. President Obama addressed the nation to deliver the news around 11:30 PM EST.
O’Donnell later removed the post.
