The link goes to a self-proclaimed "conservative" site called 24ahead.com... he has had the most reasonable writing on this particular subject that I've seen over the past few months. I've got no evaluation (or even knowledge) of his other positions. I linked to him because corporate news sources, including Fox and even indie bloggers like Little Green Footballs, have been distorting the facts and smearing the questioners of the legitimacy of the current ruling structure. 24ahead has been dealing with the actual issues.
The issues themselves are simple. Someone asked Obama/Soetoro for his birth certificate. In October of 2009, just before the election, ObamaCo filed for dismissal of the request. They have done so dozens of times since, in multiple courts across the country.
Doesn't matter if the original questioner was a nutcase. Doesn't matter. The fact is that the mob filed for dismissal. That's not openness. That signals something to hide.
There are many answers ObamaCo could have given. Filing for dismissal is the wrong answer. It is the wrong answer.
The followup dialog remained ambiguous, but confirmed the pattern... they attacked the questioners, misrepresented the controversy as only about the birth certificate. I don't know what kind of hell Orly Taitz has been going through. I don't know what kind of pressure they put on Judge Carter. I do know how Betsy Wright's Bimbo Squad employed Pellicano and Paladino to threaten women who were attacked by The Man. I do know that the Obama Eligibility facts have been consistently been misrepresented, the real news has consistently been ignored, and any who doubt The Faith have been personally attacked with prejudicial terms like "birthers" or worse.
If you want a federal job, you've got to show your records. If some cipher from Chicago wants The Big Job, he damn well better show his basic birth location & doctor, elementary school records, passport history, whether he has applied for aid as a foreign student, and all the other normal documentation The Machine has carefully squirrelled away. He should show them whether or not he's asked. But if asked, it's despicable for them to attack those who request such basic and expected openness and transparency.
He needs to answer the questions about why the only school record we have lists him as an Indonesian citizen. He needs to forthrightly discuss his own website's admission of British and Kenyan citizenship. He needs to provide a good explanation of why he's the only recent presidential candidate without a public Grade Point Average. He needs to stop with the personal attacks, and just answer the questions.
He needs to answer why his law school admissions did not list his alternate names. He needs to clear up the confusion on his Social Security Numbers and Draft Card numbers. He needs to document his travel to Pakistan, his entire passport history. He needs to clear up why his campaign removed the AVS check on credit card donations. He needs to answer. He needs to actually be open, instead of just spouting off about how open he is, and how closed you are.
It was the filing for dismissal which was the smoking gun. Previously you could argue that his citizenship history had been hidden simply through innocent negligence. But filing for dismissal -- stonewalling -- is the key intentional action which would normally trigger the antibodies of an objective press.
The reluctance to reply indicates he is ineligible, and his administration is fraudulent. The timidity of Republicans to acknowledge these basic questions implies the mob has nuclear dirt on them. The failure of the press indicates that they are part of the same corrupt machine. The lockstep of the citizenry indictes a fraudulent society.
It's a bad, bad day, in Saul Alinsky's Amerikka, when a cat may no longer look at a king.
