Thugs intimidate media

  • Follow Letters

I had been wondering why we are not hearing more about President Obama’s eligibility cases and why judges were not paying attention to the facts presented to them. It now appears the answer is threats by various government entities.

In an article posted March 8 by the website Conservative Byte: The lead investigator in Maricopa County, Ariz., Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s review of the authenticity of Obama’s birth certificate today unloaded a bombshell about the case – that he was told by sources that members of the media were threatened with federal investigations should they continue to report on the birth certificate issue.

Lead investigator Mike Zullo told World Net Daily that as he was preparing information to be presented to the public, “it was clear that the mainstream media was not going to be in attendance” at the sheriff’s scheduled news conference, where he revealed facts suggesting both fraud and forgery in the image of a Hawaiian birth certificate that the White House released as “proof positive” of Obama’s eligibility for office last year.

“During our investigation, we actually were told (the media) had been threatened with (Federal Trade Commission) investigations. Commentators (had been) threatened with their jobs,” Zullo said. The threats were so intimidating that some individuals quit their positions over safety concerns for their families, he said.

It breaks my heart that our magnificent country has come to this – being bullied into submission by a pretender to the presidency behaving like a Chicago thug. This man has got to be impeached and dismissed now, not next November or January!

Hmmm... World Net Daily - now

Hmmm... World Net Daily - now there's a news source for you. There aren't a lot of news media sources that are on the same level as the National Enquirer. I don't think WND would understand an actual news fact if it was broken over their heads with a two by four.

I'm not impressed. Where are the facts and the proof that what is being reports is not factual? Where are the facts that provide proof that your claims are legitimate, spec? Just because you don't like their reports it doesn't make it true.

and some are still fighting over the civil war. fight on. it is best though to rationalize your position, and when there is NO one listening, move on; else you find yourselves marginalized to the fringes with the 9/11 conspiratorial crowd and the big-foot theorists.

“In Positive Economic Sign,

“In Positive Economic Sign, Republicans Starting to Say Obama Wasn’t Born in US Again

S & P Birther Index Posts Big Gains

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report) – In what some experts are calling a strong indicator of improvement in the economy, Republicans in recent weeks have begun renewing their claims that President Barack Obama was not born in the United States.

While most economists agree that any significant improvement in the US economy is generally accompanied by an uptick in GOP questions about Mr. Obama’s place of birth, there is now an econometric tool for measuring the increase in those claims: the so-called S & P Birther Index.”

As for you faith, trying to bring references about the civil war in with regards to me was totally ill advised. I'm certain i am well advanced in knowledge of it and emotional connection to it than you are, unless you can claim ancestors in this country precedeing the Mayflower.

Dead Horse!!!! Look if you

Dead Horse!!!! Look if you don't want the man as President then get out and vote. That's how we do it here in the US. The Birth Certificate debacle has been over for quite a long time, years in fact. How about ranting on things that matter like the economy, wasteful government spending, how to make America great again. Let's all go out and do something for our country. We can start by voting. After that who knows...

It is interesting that

It is interesting that Arpaio's cold case team (retired volunteers with good credentials in various areas of criminal science) have found problems with Obama's birth certificate. I think that there are problems with Obama's birth story and always have been. That being said I would rather concentrate on Obama's massive debt, incompetence in managing America's energy problems, unemployment still above 8% and sweet heart "green energy" deals with wealthy campaign contributors. The latest energy department loan company to go bankrupt is Uni-solar. I just can’t keep track of all these “bets” Obama made with our tax dollars that have lost and the amount of money being wasted! The Obama administration will be studied for years as the classic text book case of how NOT to invest with venture capital!

President's quote: "we need to continue what we are doing at the federal level, which is spend your money on research. I think it’s a legitimate use of taxpayers’ money, to spend on grants, to find new ways to power our economy, new ways to conserve, new ways to protect the environment through new technologies."

mr bio.you cited a story that republicans are steping up attacks on obumler birth issue because the economy is improving...a little read story is that deficiet spending in feb.2012 was the highest ever in history. with all that wonderful economic news we've been fed by the media and obumler over the last couple months you would think the feds would be rolling in tax reciepts yet they set a record for deficiet spending....how do these co-exist...its all a lie.. there may be a little improvement but i personally dont see much improvement. the numbers are being cooked to re-elect the obumler

tech the prez also said it

tech the prez also said it was a gamble and you dont win all the time.. but where is it stated that govt can take tax dollars from individuals and gamble with it..his words..the problem with obumler... it is not an investment but a punishment to the american people because he doesnt like fossial fuels..just like his comment in 2008 when he said you can build a coal burning power plant but we will tax you into bankruptcy..it is un-american tp pick losers and winners with tax payers dollars regardless who does it..and central planning is great..how about the 50 dollar phillips light bulb or the volt electric car. just to name 2..when technology is viable the private sector will fully fund it..market it and sell it

Reporting on things such as

Reporting on things such as birther claims and bigfoot lends credence to those claims. My question to the birthers is, "If it is found out that Obama isn't eligible, what then?" and "Don't you think that the Clinton political machine would have found and used this?"
He has almost completed his term in office and removing him would not only but Joe (not so bright) Biden in office but also cement the black vote against Republicans for decades to come. Focusing on his birth certificate takes away attention to his policies and what he is doing to this country. It portrays the birthers as fringe whack-jobs (which most are by the way). It also allows his apologists to, as with the race card, to paint anyone who doesn't support him as fringe whack-jobs like the birthers. Why do you think that he has let this issue go on so long.

All this is of concern to some but the fact that the Taliban is now vowing to BEHEAD any American they capture is more serious for me. I don't want my young relative who is making his first trip to the region beheaded.
I would much rather he had been enjoying a game of hoops with the Commander in Chief and Cameron last evening.(heavily guarded I am sure.)
