Politico continues misinformation campaign of covering for Obama, Obama hidden records, Obama place of birth, Lies about Obama eligibility, Citizen Wells challenge
“Why has Obama, since taking the White House, used Justice Department Attorneys, at taxpayer expense, to avoid presenting a legitimate birth certificate and college records?”…Citizen Wells
“Barack Obama, show me the college loans.”…Citizen Wells
“And if all others accepted the lie which the Party imposed
–if all records told the same tale–then the lie passed into
history and became truth. “Who controls the past,” ran the
Party slogan, “controls the future: who controls the present
controls the past.”…George Orwell, “1984″
Politico continues it’s tradition of misinformation and covering for Obama. What is their motivation?
They imply in the article below that mostly Republicans or conspiracy believers question Obama’s records and place of birth.
I am certain that if I polled only those Americans who are rational, well informed and value the US Constitution, that at least 99% would question Obama’s birth place and reasons for hiding his records.
From Politico January 18, 2013.
“Poll: Republican voters say Obama’s hiding something”
“More than a third of Americans — and 64 percent of Republicans — believe that President Barack Obama might be hiding something, according to a new poll Thursday.
Thirty-six percent of the surveyed voters think the president is possibly “hiding important information about his background and early life,” the Fairleigh Dickinson University PublicMind survey found.
Sixty-four percent of Republicans think the president isn’t coming clean, 33 percent of independents agree, and 14 percent of Democrats say so, too.
“This conspiracy theory is much more widely believed mostly because it’s been discussed so often,” said Dan Cassino, a professor of political science at Fairleigh Dickinson. “People tend to believe that where there’s smoke, there’s fire — so the more smoke they see, the more likely they are to believe that something is going on.”
The most common — and debunked — conspiracy theory about Obama is that he wasn’t born in the U.S. and therefore isn’t eligible to be president.
The poll also found that 63 percent of registered voters believe at least one political conspiracy theory. Other popular conspiracy theories include the notion that the government knew about the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks before they occurred (25 percent believe this to be true) and the belief that Obama committed voter fraud in the 2012 election (19 percent buy that argument).
Higher levels of education and awareness of current events, however, are linked to a reduction in belief in such theories, the study reported. Democrats and independents with more political knowledge were found to be more likely to dismiss conspiracy theories, while Republicans with more political knowledge were more likely to believe the theories.
The poll was conducted with 814 registered American voters from Dec. 10-16, 2012 and has a margin of error of +/- 3.4 percentage points for the full sample.”
From the “study.”
“There are several possible explanations for this,” said Cassino. “It could be that more conspiracy-minded Republicans seek out more information, or that the information some Republicans seek out just tends to reinforce these myths.”
“conspiracy-minded Republicans” “myths”
Mr. Cassino, you hardly left your bias at home.
“The most common — and debunked — conspiracy theory about Obama is that he wasn’t born in the U.S. and therefore isn’t eligible to be president.”
Debunked by whom?
Numerous generals and other high ranking military officers, judges, attorneys and other well educated, intelligent and highly informed people have questioned Obama’s eligibility and records.
Yes, more often than not, where there is smoke there is fire.
Obama, since 2008 has used a long list of private and US Justice Dept. attorneys to keep his records hidden. Much of this has been at taxpayer expense.
We have not seen Obama’s college records or proof of student loans.
There is zero evidence of Obama being born in the US that would stand up in a court of law.
The only evidence that we have, circumstantial, from many sources over many years, strongly indicates that Obama was born in Kenya.
When someone asks me where Obama was born I honestly answer that I do not know.
Politico: Care to engage me in a battle of wits or information? I am highly educated. I have a math and computer science background and I am uber informed.
