Hours after The Post & Email highlighted the Games being played on the Internet by Google
by John Charlton
(Oct. 16, 2009) — Sometime before 2 AM Eastern Time, October 16th, someone changed the Honolulu Advertiser page, to which The Post & Email had linked, and through which link more than 400 visitors arrived at the newspapers’ site.
That article, of January 8, 2008, as of yesterday had stated that Duckworth and Obama were both born overseas; now all reference to foreign birth, even for Duckworth, who publically admits being born in Thailand, has been scrubbed!
You cannot hide a scrub, even if a scrub hides what you wanted to conceal from history. You always leave a trace. And this time The Post & Email will document it.
The Honolulu Advertiser is Dishonest
A reader of The Post & Email was “witness” to the crime against History; he posts his comment early this morning, of Oct. 16, 2009, at 2:10 AM:

Read the following article very carefully!
There is a line of text that has been scrubbed from that article.
It stated: ” Duckworth is happy to point out that she and Hawai’i-raised Punahou graduate Obama have “a kama’aina connection.”
Both were born outside the country — Obama in Indonesia, Duckworth in Thailand — and graduated from high school in Honolulu — Punahou and McKinley, respectively.”
You can read my response to Ben, in the comment cited. In short, the Blue text was not there yesterday when I wrote my articles; but the Greeen text and Blue text have both disappeared as of today. (Boldface and coloring in Ben’s comments were added for clarification)
From the time stamp on Ben’s comment, it was before 2 AM Eastern Time, Oct. 16, 2009.
For those who want to see the page, as it looked, and as it now looks, the screen capture of each version is available in image form at this URL:
The question is, who changed the page? The Advertiser, or someone working from Chicago or D.C.?
Why the change was made is obvious: the information contained was proof that Obama has changed his birth story. No amount of obfuscation or scrubbing can now hide that fact.
Obama supporters can decry that journalists make errors; but they should also decry when they hide inconvenient verbiage that they uttered in the past, when it does not suit their present political agenda. That’s 1984, not the U.S.A..
However, the scrub does proves once again, what The Post & Email documented yesterday, that Obama’s birth story is in continual evolution, and that his supporters are actively rewritting history to catchup with is lies.
For that, The Post & Email can publically thank The Honolulu Advertiser. You attempted to hide what you ended up confirming.
