AND ARE MEMBERS OF THE MEDIA RUNNING FOR THE HILLS?

(Apr. 7, 2011) — Various news outlets are reporting this evening that Rep. Carl Seel (R-Phoenix) will be meeting with Donald Trump at Trump Tower in New York City on Friday, April 8, to discuss the presidential eligibility bill sponsored by Seel in the Arizona legislature.
The Post & Email has been told that a small number of other people were invited to attend the meeting in addition to Seel, who stated that he was “surprised and pleased to be invited to a meeting.
The meeting will take place at 11:30 a.m. EDT. The Sonoran Alliance has reported that “Media may arrange in advance to attend the meeting by contacting Carl Seel at (602) 926-3018 or firstname.lastname@example.org.”
The state of Oklahoma is also considering a presidential eligibility bill.
Donald Trump had begun to express doubts about Obama’s eligibility on March 17 and again on March 23 when he appeared on ABC’s “The View” and called upon Obama to release his original long-form birth certificate to prove that he was born in the United States. A decorated, 18-year Army medical doctor was sentenced to six months at Ft. Leavenworth as well as forfeiture of pay and pension for making the same request of Obama but being denied access to the putative commander-in-chief’s records.
Since March 23, Trump has been interviewed by Geraldo Rivera of Fox News. On Thursday, April 7, Trump told Meredith Vieira of NBC, “If he [Obama] wasn’t born in this country, he has conned the whole world.” A writer for Yahoo! News opined that Vieira “let him make the claim that Obama’s grandmother said she saw him born in Kenya – an old, and long-debunked, chestnut of birthers that ranks up there with the fake Mombassa birth certificate – without questioning it. So now millions of Today viewers are invited to take it as fact. And while Trump made the juicy-sounding claim that he’s sent investigators to Hawaii and “can’t believe” what he’s hearing from them, if Vieira asked him to back it up with a single example of their findings, that ended up on the cutting room floor.”
Radio show host Rush Limbaugh stated that Trump caught Vieira off-guard as he discussed the $2,000,000 which Obama has reportedly spent hiding his birth certificate and other records. Limbaugh also said that if Obama was not born in the United States, it was “one of the greatest scams ever.”
The New York Times erroneously reported that Obama has shown a “Certificate of Live Birth from Hawaii” when the Hawaii Department of Health has never confirmed that the internet image displayed on Obama’s “Fight the Smears” website came from them. The Times also incorrectly reported that Hawaii’s current governor, Neil Abercrombie, had affirmed that Obama has an authentic birth certificate from Hawaii, as did former Governor Linda Lingle, when in fact, Abercrombie has stated that there does not appear to be an original birth document for Obama in Hawaii.
Editor’s Note: Earlier today, Obama’s campaign website, “Fight the Smears,” was displaying the Certification of Live Birth as it has been since 2008. This evening, however, when searching for the link to the page with the image of the COLB, the website was not accessible.
An editorial by Jonathan Capehart of The Washington Post labeled Trump’s stance a “disgusting, dangerous dance with birthers.” A writer for Politico refers to Trump as “king of the birthers” and to Rep. Carl Seel as a “birther lawmaker.”
Glenn Beck has said that Trump is making him “a little uncomfortable with birther remarks about Obama.” Perhaps Beck should be uncomfortable; he has failed to report on the questions surrounding Obama’s eligibility to serve as president and commander-in-chief of the military due to his foreign-citizen father, claims that he was born in Kenya or Indonesia, and apparent documentation of Indonesian citizenship.
How can a person with all of these citizenship hurdles be considered a “natural born Citizen” of the United States?
No one in the media seems to be discussing the possibility that Donald Trump could be correct regarding Obama’s perpetration of fraud and deceit upon the nation. This evening on “The Factor” with Bill O’Reilly, when asked why Trump was making Obama’s birth certificate an issue, Fox & Friends anchor Gretchen Carlson smiled and said, “He’s taking a huge risk.”
Are members of the media running scared? What will happen to their eight-figure salaries once the truth is made known? Fifty million dollars annually to obscure the truth is a lot of money.
What if Trump is correct, Obama has lied to the American people about his past, and does not qualify for the office of President?
Section 3 of the 20th Amendment to the Bill of Rights states:
If, at the time fixed for the beginning of the term of the President, the President elect shall have died, the Vice President elect shall become President. If a President shall not have been chosen before the time fixed for the beginning of his term, or if the President elect shall have failed to qualify, then the Vice President elect shall act as President until a President shall have qualified; and the Congress may by law provide for the case wherein neither a President elect nor a Vice President elect shall have qualified, declaring who shall then act as President, or the manner in which one who is to act shall be selected, and such person shall act accordingly until a President or Vice President shall have qualified.
How many people will be going to jail if Obama lied? How many will be charged with treason against the United States? How many should be speaking up now?
Are the walls finally coming down?
