IS FOX NEWS UNABLE OR UNWILLING TO PURSUE THE TRUTH?

Dear Ms. van Susteren:
In your interview with Donald Trump on October 24, you appeared uncomfortable discussing Donald Trump’s public offer to Barack Obama to give $5,000,000 to a charity of Obama’s choosing if he released his college applications and records as well as passport applications and records to Trump’s satisfaction.
You attempted to make the case that Trump’s offer of $5,000,000 was inadequate because Trump is “a very wealthy man.” Regardless of how wealthy Trump is, to most people, the amount he offered is more than magnanimous for any cause.
On the webpage featuring your show, Fox News asks “Why are so few news/media organizations covering the Libya/Benghazi/US Consulate Story?”
My question to you and all of the handsomely-paid anchors at Fox News is: “Why is no news/media organization covering the Obama eligibility/identity story?”
A law enforcement investigation conducted by the Maricopa County, AZ Sheriff’s Office and Cold Case Posse has determined and announced formally, on two occasions, that the “long-form birth certificate” to which you referred in your interview with Trump is a “computer-generated forgery,” yet you indicated that you are “satisfied” with its release.
To its credit, Fox News reported on the first and second Arpaio press conference online, but still failed to report the revelations on television and claimed that questions about Obama’s birthplace had been “debunked.” Exactly who debunked them, Ms. van Susteren, when Obama himself claimed that he was born in Kenya before he was born in Hawaii?
Members of the Kenyan Parliament have stated “on the record” that Obama was born in their country.
The posse also found that Obama’s Selective Service registration card is a forgery. Selective Service Director Lawrence Romo, who reports directly to Obama, will not allow access to the “original” application, if one exists. Instead, he referred Mike Zullo, the lead investigator, to the FBI, which has also failed to take action on the charges of forgery and fraud put forth by the investigative team. Numerous graphics and computer experts have gone “on the record,” some staking their reputations, in declaring the “birth certificate” a poor forgery. Even an “expert” quoted by Fox News at the time said that he was misquoted and could not vouch for the authenticity of the document.
A licensed private investigator has staked her reputation and filed a lawsuit in Ohio on her claim that Obama is using a stolen Social Security number.
So what is Fox News hiding? Why would you not want to be the first and only mainstream media outlet to report on these findings in the same way in which you are covering the Benghazi cover-up?
While it is unfortunate that most attorneys are not familiar with our founding documents, particularly the U.S. Constitution, to make the assumption that a digital image of a birth certificate already deemed to be a forgery by many qualifies Barack Hussein Obama for the presidency is ludicrous. Simply being born in the country is not what our Founders intended when they included Section 1, clause 5 in Article II of the Constitution. They wanted the person holding the office of president and commander-in-chief to have sole allegiance to the United States, which involves the citizenship of the parents, or at least the father. Were you aware that in 1916, Democrat Breckinridge Long, who served under President Woodrow Wilson as Third Assistant Secretary of State, correctly questioned the eligibility of Mr. Charles Evans Hughes because he was born in the United States but to a British-citizen father?
Obama claims to have been born to a foreign-born, non-naturalized father; therefore, it makes no difference where in the world he was born, nor did it make any difference for Mr. Hughes.
Obama’s own statements have conflicted with accepted “facts” about his childhood. While he originally claimed that his parents were married when he was born, he now says that he was “born to a single mother.” Moreover, Investigator Zullo has expressed doubt that the life story Obama has made public is accurate, including his birth date. During an interview in early September, Zullo said that Obama’s memoir, Dreams From My Father, was written “to give him a cover story for a life that never happened.” Is this matter not newsworthy?
Is it not worth investigating when a researcher who has published a myriad of articles about Obama states that “There is no Stanley Ann Dunham?” Why would no one within a large news corporation such as Fox be even the slightest bit curious about such a claim?
A hearing took place on October 22 in Indianapolis, IN initiated by Atty. Orly Taitz, of whom I am sure you have heard, during which a Superior Court judge heard testimony from two witnesses specializing in website development and typesetting, respectively, regarding Obama’s alleged long-form birth certificate. One possesses 57 years of experience, and both declared the image a forgery.
By failing to report on what could be the worst fraud ever perpetrated on the American people, you, too, are complicit in the conspiracy which has kept an unvetted, unqualified person in the White House who now is responsible for the deaths of four State Department employees, including an ambassador, and hundreds, if not thousands, of military members who have been maimed and killed under his watch. Everything about Obama’s past has been obscured and “fraught with problems,” yet the media is silent or derisive toward the messenger.
Glenn Beck, who some believe Fox wished to “control,” has now uttered the word “treason” in regard to Obama because of reports that the U.S. is arming Islamic insurgents in the Middle East. Beck is not the first to accuse Obama of treason; it was done by a retired member of the military on March 17, 2009. Since then, thousands of people have signed petitions, written letters and filed formal complaints of treason against Obama and Eric Holder, but Fox says nothing.
If Obama has presented forged documentation to the American people in order to deceive, is he guilty of treason?
It is not the amount which Trump offered that should gain your attention; it is the obfuscation which Obama has committed and the lack of vetting by “media/news organizations” that is to blame. You must surely know that the large media companies control the information which reaches the people. Since 2007, Fox News has failed to verify the “facts” Obama has issued about his life which he himself has now contradicted. Other networks have also gone out of their way to provide cover for Obama’s questionable birthplace and life story.
As a trained attorney, like Trump, I am surprised that you would not be more circumspect about the image which Obama purported to be his birth certificate. As a journalist, one would expect you to want to investigate the matter, but instead you have demonized the messenger. Could it be that you are uncomfortable that the truth is about to become public and Fox News will lose all of its credibility?
While no major “media/news organizations” have followed this story, those of us in the internet community who have worked hard to pursue it will be the ones to break wide open the biggest fraud in all of American history.
Very truly yours,
