Here's how to fight for it!
— WND Exclusive Offer —
Last Friday, a judge in Hawaii threw out the latest lawsuit seeking public release of Barack Obama's No. 1 state secret—his birth certificate!

In ruling against the challenge, the judge wrote that he found "insufficient evidence to indicate that the public interest supports" release of the document.

Since that judge's ruling, more than 95,000 WorldNetDaily readers have joined you in signing the petition to demand documentation of Barack Obama's eligibility to hold the highest office in the U.S. Nearly 1,000 people an hour have signed the petition. How's that for an expression of public interest?

It's not surprising that WND readers are well-versed in the controversy and understand the stakes. No news organization in the world has done more to get to the bottom of this eligibility question. During the presidential campaign, WND:

dispatched senior staff reporter Jerome Corsi twice to Hawaii to investigate the matter, including an appeal to the governor.

hired a battery of private investigators in Hawaii to check every hospital for birth records—to no avail.

sent Corsi to Kenya where he talked with some of Obama's relatives who clearly recall the birth taking place in Mombasa. (While there, Corsi was detained by Kenyan officials and a press conference he had scheduled was canceled at the last minute at the order of Prime Minister Raila Odinga, who has since made clear he has expectations of payback from soon-to-be President Obama.)

How do ya'll feel about having a Muslim president?

"How do ya'll feel about having a Muslim president?"

I don't "feel" one way or another. Our Constitution specifically rules out a religious test for national office.

Of course, I'm sure your question would be more relevant if and when we ever actually have a Muslim president.

I have a question for you Catholics for Democracy. Remember? Converting to Christianity is a Death Penalty. Why aren't the Muslims all upset because of Obama's converting to Christianity?

Bingo! The answer is--They all know he's still Muslim.

What's your problem?

Catholics either didn't hear the truth because of the MSM doing everything they could to hide it...which, by the way, points to a borderline communism right there...and one newscaster saying he felt tingling up his leg?? ach ach OR...Catholics chose to justify their position in voting for Obama, knowing clearly the obamanation of extreme liberal abortion and twisted the words of the Faithful Citizenship to suit their justification.

Either way a "faithful" Catholic would bother to find out and/or not try to push a liberal agenda by twisting words to suit the need to do so.

Fact is...pocketbooks are more important than life. And, Catholics who twist the teachings are twisting Jesus Himself. That is a slippery slope, one foot in hell and the other on a banana peel.

I would love for anyone who thinks abortion is ok to look at the pictures on Fr. Pavone's website, Priests for Life. I dare anyone and then say it's ok with the Catholic Church. ha!

Obama is black but neither of his parents have any slavery in their background except that his paternal side owned them in Africa. Of all people for blacks to support! I canNOT believe that. What do Margaret Sanger and Barak Obama have in common? Plenty.

Clairvaux said...

Oh, I forgot....I have a question that I keep asking people who voted for Obama just exactly which social issues will he solve and what is his plan? How does he expect to do it?

Katherine said...

Catholics had Randall Terry putting flyers on their cars while at Mass, so I don't see how they missed "the truth". I think they found the stuff the right wing was pedling so offensive they hrew it in the trash and voted Obama.

Good sense, Catholics!

Clair --

Try the Obama website. It gives detailed descriptions of the President Elect's positions.

Obama keeping promises made to homosexual groups
Jim Brown - OneNewsNow - 12/1/2008 6:30:00 AM

President-elect Barack Obama is moving swiftly to appoint homosexual activists to positions within his administration.

Politico.com reports that 10 national homosexual organizations are working with the Obama transition team to get more openly homosexual people appointed to the incoming administration. Obama's transition team has also reportedly named at least seven openly homosexual people to transition panels assigned to review federal departments and agencies. Three of the seven homosexuals on transition panels have held high-level positions in the Clinton administration.



Matt Barber, director of cultural affairs with Liberty Counsel and Liberty Alliance Action, says Obama is keeping his promises to the homosexual lobby.

"Obama, throughout the campaign, signaled...very quietly, but nonetheless signaled on his web page and elsewhere that he essentially had signed off on every major demand of homosexual pressure groups," he said. "So it's not surprising that he has now allowed some of these radical activists to become part of his administration."

According to the Washington Blade, Obama officials also named President Bush's former ambassador to Romania, Michael Guest, to a transition panel assigned to review issues pertaining to the State Department.

Katherine posted an obituary, dear ones. Save the venom for other posts.

RIP, dear Pauline.

Katherine said...

Tom --

Good for Obama. I am proud of him.

No one should be denied a job or fired because they are gay. Thanks to the elections, we can soon expect legislation to make thsi workplace discrimination illegal.

Its not just gay activists who support this bill, but old ladies like me. I appreciate the President Elect keeping this campaign committment.

Ambassador Guest, of course, is a fine public servant (at least Dr. Condi Rice says so). President Bush appointed him ambassador.

Ya gotta love these folks who are trumpeting their biases all over the internet.

They provide much amusement.

And when you suggest to them that their blather played a major role in Obama's election, they keep coming back with more and more blather.

Gotta love 'em. God bless them for their endless litany of free love offerings for Obama.

Clairvaux said...

No, Katherine, you tell me what social issue(s) he is going to fix and how he is going to do it. That's the problem when I ask...no one can tell me. I see you have copped out, too.

Clairvaux said...

Putting flyers on cars in MA ? Well, there ya go....they put them on cars that were already cafeteria Catholics so they wasted their flyers. No social issue in the United States has ever murdered 50 million human beings.

Katherine said...

No, Katherine, you tell me what social issue(s) he is going to fix and how he is going to do it. That's the problem when I ask...no one can tell me. I see you have copped out, too.

Clair, you are just being silly.

If you have an honest inquiry about what social problems the President Elect intends to address, go to the source. The President Elect has a whole website with his policy positions. It is totally accessable. You do not need me as a middleman. If you have the wits to access this website, you can access his.

Clairvaux said...

Katherine, too funny that you keep refusing to show that you know anything. In other words, you don't know his policies or how he intends to effect them. I have the wits to view his website. But do you have the wits to answer the question....what social issue is most important to you and how do you understand his design to effect the solution. So, you want to post blah blah but have no clue behind it?

Katherine said...

Clair,

Its all there for your viewing. I don't know why you find it so intellectually taxing.

Kurt said...

Clairvaux seems more interested in pikcing Katherine apart than understanding Obama's platform. Katherine is right, if you want to understand Obama's position, go to his website. It is all there. If you have some other issue to discuss, state it.

Bill said...

"Clairvaux seems more interested in pikcing Katherine apart than understanding Obama's platform."

What??? Do you have a "picked on" complex?

We want to know what Katherine is going to tell us. If she were honest there wouldn't be a problem.

Kurt said...

Obama is the President-Elect. Isn't he the person you care about? Your obsession with Katherine makes no sense.
