Our friend Doug Hagmann of the Northeast Intelligence Network adds some intriguing fuel to the eligibility fire:
The Northeast Intelligence Network and Canada Free Press are in possession of extremely sensitive investigative documents, including a stunning written admission by a nationally known talk show host stating that he was threatened with his career – or worse – should he talk about the issue of Barack Hussein Obama’s birth records to a national audience.
From multiple interviews conducted within the last eight months, we have obtained information from other sources, independent of the above, who have also been instructed to avoid any discussion of the birth certificate issue at all costs, to wit:
The account of an administrative assistant employed in New York City by a cable network news station who provided significant, detailed information of a 2008 meeting between the top network executive and four well-known news anchors. This source confirmed that she drafted the memo to the various hosts to notify them of the date, time and location of this high-level meeting at the request of the network’s top executive.
Present at this meeting, she verified that the network official issued “warnings” to the personalities “to avoid any on-air discussion of the birth place, eligibility, and news accounts of litigation compelling [Barack Hussein] Obama to produce a legitimate copy of his birth certificate.” She stated that the network executive had her arrange the conference immediately following a meeting “between [the network executive] and an attorney closely associated with candidate Obama who was acting on his behalf.”
The statement of a corporate secretary for a major news network confirming the existence of a one-page inter-office memo, bearing the markings “confidential” and “not for dissemination,” addressed and distributed to news anchors and on-air talent” that specifically instructed the recipients to avoid any discussion pertaining to the Obama birth certificate controversy. The memo was written and distributed in October 2008, and specifically instructed on-air talent to “advise guests, as necessary, to refrain from citing any news story, legal proceedings, Internet ‘blogs’ or other sources that pertain to the ongoing eligibility controversy of future President Barack Obama.”
I consider Doug a reliable source, for whatever my opinion is worth. While the alleged Kenyan birth certificate that’s surfaced is likely a hoax, I don’t think the response from the administration or the president’s supporters is doing him much good.
Ridiculing people who, contrary to the beliefs of mainstream pundits on the left (like Bill Maher) and right (like Glenn Beck), are not “dumb” “goofballs” who’d love to see Miss California Carrie Prejean in the White House, but fairly intelligent people — some of whom even graduated college, pursued successful, fulfilling careers in the arts, entertainment, science, and industry, and published real books with lots of words (and that’s just me and Sharon). Such people don’t give a rip about most of the breathless nonsense that’s flung back and forth by political bloggers like so much monkey dung at the zoo, but they do, in fact, have a modicum of respect for the blood that’s been shed in defense of the United States Constitution.
Now, either Barack Hussein Obama is a natural-born citizen of these United States and thus eligible to be president, or he is not. If he is, it’s a simple matter to prove; thousands of people here in Indiana have to do it every year to obtain or renew their driver’s license.
So far, President Obama has resisted showing the same documentation to occupy the Oval Office than I had to present so I can drive to work. The fact that he’d rather fight than put up says a lot.
However, and while I don’t believe the birthers should drop the issue, it’s not going to come to anything. Do you think for a minute that the power brokers who kicked in to President Obama’s $750 million campaign war chest didn’t know about his eligibility going in? And do you think they’d have bankrolled Barack Hussein Obama if they thought he’d be disqualified on a technicality? These guys expect a return on their investment.
Unless, of course — and here’s the real conspiracy — the whole point was to get Joe Biden into the White House the only way possible…
