Obama accusers Larry Sinclair et al, Politico bias, Unsubstantiated allegations, Ben Smith, Herman Cain vs Obama

From World Net Daily November 09, 2011.

“Can we now talk about Obama’s accusers?”

“”Politico isn’t reprinting Sinclair’s allegations because they are unsubstantiated.” So wrote Ben Smith of Politico on June 18, 2008.

Those were the days!

Smith was referring to Larry Sinclair, who had enraged the Obama faithful by renting space at the National Press Club, there to share his allegations of a drug-fueled sex tryst with Barack Obama in 1999.

Smith, however, was not at all shy about sharing what he knew about Larry Sinclair. Indeed, by the end of the Politico article, the reader knew more about Sinclair, all of it unsavory and most of it likely true, than he did about Obama.

That much said, when Sinclair made his own case at the National Press Club – unfiltered by attorneys and unaccompanied by Gloria Allred – he did so in exquisite and oddly believable detail.

Sinclair claimed to have fellated Obama twice during their two-day encounter, but he said it as matter-of-factly if he had shaken his hand or slapped his back.

The accusation Sinclair had come to make had to do not with sex but with drugs. According to Sinclair, he and the then-state senator shared a few lines of cocaine before Obama procured some crack for the two to smoke. As Sinclair related, Obama’s claim that he had not done drugs since college was a lie.

When the Obama camp first became aware of Sinclair’s accusations in 2007, an Obama liaison, “Mr. Young,” reportedly contacted Sinclair to tease out the story.

Through numerous calls and text messages, Young let it be known that he himself was intimately involved with Obama. After some back and forth, at least according to Sinclair, Young finally told Sinclair that Obama did not intend to be any more forthcoming about his drug use.

Allegedly, Sinclair and Young last communicated in early December 2007. A few weeks later, according to the police report, Donald Young, the openly gay choirmaster of Obama’s church, was found dead at his “residence” of “multiple gunshot wounds.”

According to an earlier police report, on Nov. 17, 2007, Larry Bland, another allegedly gay member of the Trinity United Church, was also found dead in his “home” of “multiple gunshot wounds.”

At the press conference, Sinclair made no accusations. He simply shared the phone numbers he had for Young and Obama and asked the reporters to check their records against his own during the relevant time periods. They seemed disinclined.

In the Q & A, the first reporter asked why Sinclair had not come forward in 1999. To the reporter, this failure apparently undermined Sinclair’s “credibility.”

Sinclair chuckled, as he should have, at the question’s absurdity. What sense would it have made for him to rat out a lowly state senator on a drug and sex escapade he himself had initiated?

Sinclair had come forward in 2007 and done his first YouTube video in January 2008. At the time, Hillary Clinton would have been the obvious beneficiary. That did not stop the second reporter from asking whether Sinclair was being funded by the Republican Party. Sinclair laughed this one off, too.

Despite his best efforts and an occasional piece in the Globe, Sinclair’s story reached its high water mark on that bizarre June day at the National Press Club.

His name remains as foreign to Obama fans as Juanita Broaddrick was to Bill Clinton’s. The Democrats who rush to the Internet each day to find new allegations about Herman Cain sleep safely knowing that their man has nothing to fear from an inquiring media.”

“Unlike Cain, Obama has not had a single charge leveled against him by a woman. For Obama fans concerned about re-election, this is a mixed blessing.

“Cosby never got the girl on ‘I Spy,'” Obama laments in his 1995 memoir “Dreams from My Father,” but in his own retelling, he does not do much better.

Although Obama spent 13 years on the mainland as a single man, on only one occasion in “Dreams” does Obama make any reference to his love life.

In a brief recounting, he tells his half-sister Auma that in addition to a white woman he had loved and lost, “There are several black ladies out there who’ve broken my heart just as good.”

The problem is that Obama shares with the reader not a word about any of the black ladies, and not one of them has come forward on her own.

The white woman in question presents a different set of problems. In terms of height, hair color, eye color, parentage, and highly specific place of origin – namely a large country estate with a lake in the middle – she is a dead ringer for Bill Ayers’s lost love, the late Weatherwoman, Diana Oughton.

One can imagine the conversations between Obama and his muse. “Hey, bro, we got 457 pages on the bachelor king of Chicago, and you don’t get so much as kissed?”

“Make something up, Bill. Just be sure it’s by a girl.””


New Congress action plan, Work together, Create job creation environment, Fix health care, Citizen Wells open thread, November 4, 2010

New Congress action plan, Work together, Create job creation environment, Fix health care

As many of you know, I am not in love with either political party or party politics. Choosing to vote for the Republican Party candidates in 2010 was clearly the lesser of evils, a real no brainer. That being said, any candidate involved in the recent elections should realize that the American public is fed up with status quo from both sides. Come the next election cycle, any candidate, Republican or Democrat who has not listened to their constituents, who has not done the right things for America, who has not upheld the US Constitution, will be booted out of office.

Here is a simple emergency action plan, not a complete agenda.

  • Restore confidence in the business world. Define as soon as possible what the taxes will be and assure business that there will be no hidden health care surprises. This will begin to allow them to consider hiring and expansion.
  • Assure the country that the Tax & Spend Bill, aka Health Care Bill that was rammed down the throats of Americans will be deactivated or disarmed in it’s current state. It has too many negative connotations.
  • At the same time assure the country and reach out to the Democrat Party to achieve real health care reform. Maintain our present quality and then adjust the system beginning with a few goals such as portability and opening up health insurance across state lines.
  • Begin phasing in a series of incentives to small businesses in energy technology and practical residential applications such as passive solar and small scale wind energy. I happen to be knowledgeable in this area.
  • Restore confidence in Congress and our institutions. Begin acting more like statesmen and less like politicians.
  • Lastly, and I believe most important, acknowledge and pledge a new allegiance to the US Constitution as the supreme law of the land.

Obviously I have more to say, but will reserve those comments for the appropriate time.

We have put a bandaid on this country, now is the time to heal it.

God bless and preserve America.

Parker Griffith Republican congressman, Griffith switches to GOP, Alabama representative Griffith at odds with Democrat Party, Health care bill, Huntsville AL district

From Politico, December 22, 2009.

“Rep. Parker Griffith switches to GOP”

“POLITICO learns Rep. Parker Griffith will announce today that he’s switching parties to become a Republican.”

“POLITICO has learned that Rep. Parker Griffith, a freshman Democrat from Alabama, will announce today that he’s switching parties to become a Republican.
According to two senior GOP aides familiar with the decision, the announcement will take place this afternoon in Griffith’s district in northern Alabama.
Griffith’s party switch comes on the eve of a pivotal congressional health care vote and will send a jolt through a Democratic House Caucus that has already been unnerved by the recent retirements of a handful of members who, like Griffith, hail from districts that offer prime pickup opportunities for the GOP in 2010.
The switch represents a coup for the House Republican leadership, which had been courting Griffith since he publicly criticized the Democratic leadership in the wake of raucous town halls during the summer.
Griffith, who captured the seat in a close 2008 open seat contest, will become the first Republican to hold the historically Democratic, Huntsville-based district. A radiation oncologist who founded a cancer treatment center, Griffith plans to blast the Democratic health care bill as a prime reason for his decision to switch parties—and is expected to cite his medical background as his authority on the subject.”

“Signs of Griffith’s dissatisfaction with his party began to surface publicly during the summer recess, when he received an earful of criticism from constituents.
In August — one month after Republicans picked up his former state legislative seat in a special election — Griffith told a local newspaper that he wouldn’t vote for Nancy Pelosi to remain as House Speaker because she’s too divisive. He joked that if she didn’t like it, he’d provide her with a gift certificate to a mental health center.
He added that if the Democratic leadership wouldn’t commit to working in a more bipartisan manner, “perhaps we should look at altering that.””

Thanks to commenter Patriot Dreamer.

Attention, Ben Smith, John Harris, Obama not eligible, Internet billboard, Natural born citizen, Obama attorneys, Obama birth certificate, Obama’s father Kenyan British citizen, Obama spends millions to avoid

*** Updated November 30, 4:15 PM ET ***

I am glad that Politico has lowered Obama’s status from Messiah to prophet and actually covered some of the no brainer negative aspects about his personality and administration. I am glad that Politico covered some real problem aspects of Obama, but this is still fluff journalism.

“7 stories Barack Obama doesn’t want told”

“The Obama White House argues that all of these storylines are inaccurate or unfair. In some cases these anti-Obama narratives are fanned by Republicans, in some cases by reporters and commentators
But they all are serious threats to Obama, if they gain enough currency to become the dominant frame through which people interpret the president’s actions and motives.”

  • “He thinks he’s playing with Monopoly money”
  • “Too much Leonard Nimoy”
  • “That’s the Chicago Way”
  • “He’s a pushover”
  • “He sees America as another pleasant country on the U.N. roll call, somewhere between Albania and Zimbabwe”
  • “President Pelosi”
  • “He’s in love with the man in the mirror”

John Harris and Politico, don’t you think that Obama does not want the American public to know that he has spent approx 2 million dollars avoiding producing proof that he is a natural born citizen? How about the deeper ties to Rezko, Blagojevich, et al when he was a IL Senator? Perhaps he would rather not answer questions about where he was in early November 1999.

I am not accusing Politico of being bought by the Obama camp, being anti American, anti US Constitution, dull witted, profiting by targeting the niche market of left wing wackos, having poor reading comprehension skills or anything else. But for the life of me, what the hell motivates them to write such biased, unfounded in facts, un American crap. There are many others out there who would like an honest answer.

So, Ben Smith, John Harris and the rest of you at Politico, do you have an answer or response for number 1 on the Internet Billboard. Why Obama has employed a legion of private and government attorneys to avoid producing a legitimate birth certificate proving his country of birth. Lou Dobbs, while he was at CNN of all places, asked why Obama doesn’t produce a birth certificate. US taxpayers are paying for some of Obama’s legal representation. Who is paying for the rest? Cost estimates run near two million dollars. These are real issues requiring serious journalism and reporting.

When this story breaks big, the biased, incompetent or fearful folks reporting in the MSM and internet are going to have a lot of explaining and soul searching to do. After all, this is our country and the country we will leave our descendants.

It is one thing to ignore the Obama eligibility issues. It is quite another to attack and demean honest, patriotic, concerned Americans who look to the US Constitution for guidance.

Politico had this to say about the Obama eligibility issues on March 1, 2009

“Culture of conspiracy: the Birthers”

“Barack Obama rests his hand on President Lincoln’s Inaugural Bible as Michelle holds it as he takes the oath of office.
Photo: AP Bill Clinton had the Vince Foster “murder.” George W. Bush had 9/11 Truth. And the new administration has brought with it a new culture of conspiracy: The Birthers.
Out of the gaze of the mainstream and even the conservative media is a flourishing culture of advocates, theorists and lawyers, all devoted to proving that Barack Obama isn’t eligible to be president of the United States. Viewed as irrelevant by the White House, and as embarrassing by much of the Republican Party, the subculture still thrives from the conservative website WorldNetDaily, which claims that some 300,000 people have signed a petition demanding more information on Obama’s birth, to Cullman, Alabama, where Sen. Richard Shelby took a question on the subject at a town hall meeting last week.
Their confinement to the fringe hasn’t cooled the passion of believers; the obscure New York preacher James Manning turned up at a National Press Club session in December to declare the president “the most notorious criminal in the history not just of America, but of this entire planet.”
A quick reality check, before we dive in: The challenges to Obama’s eligibility have no grounding in evidence. Courts across the country have summarily rejected the movement’s theory — that Obama can’t be a citizen because his father wasn’t —as a misreading of U.S. law; and Hawaii officials, along with contemporary birth announcements, affirm that Obama was in fact born in Honolulu in 1961.
But belief in obscure, discredited theories is a constant in a country with a history of partisan division — a country in which, a recent survey showed, 34 percent of the public believes in UFOs and 24 percent believes in witches..”

*** Update ***

I would like to thank the Dancing From Genesis Blog for the following astute observation:

“Ben Smith has responded to the allegations that Obama is hiding his true legal birth status, claiming at his Politico blog that Philip Berg’s lawsuit is specious because Obama has supposedly proven that he’s a natural born citizen of the United States, which certainly is not the case, and thereby demonstrates that Smith and his Politico are but tools of the left, not to be trusted, as he obfuscates the real issue, where is the proof that Obama is a natural born citizen of the United States?

Smith has raked over the coals for reporting this as serious news, and now, if you click on the link, Citizen Wells has called out Smith, challenging him to respond to his call, so we shall see if Smith hides, or addresses the issues raised by Citizen Wells and Philip Berg in his lawsuit, soon to be considered at the Supreme Court.”

*** Update End ***

You folks at Politico seem to be some real rocket scientists. However, this is not complicated. That is why I put the biggest no brainer in the world as number 1 on the Internet Billboard. Why is Obama avoiding the natural born citizen issue?


Article II, Sec. 1, cl. 5 of the US Constitution

“No person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President. . .”

From the 20th Amendment to the US Constitution.

“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;”

November 30, 2009

Attention: Politico, John Harris, Ben Smith

It is not a conspiracy theory. Using the term “birther” in a condescending, Orwellian manner to discredit decent, hard working Americans who believe that the US Constitution is the law of the land, will not be tolerated.

1. Barack Obama has employed a legion of private and government attorneys to prevent revealing his country of birth. Innocent and eligible persons seeking the office of president do not do that.

2. Barack Obama’s father was a citizen of Kenya and a British citizen.  “natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution” was explicitly written to deal with the issue of foreign allegiances at the time of the writing of the US Constitution.

3. Barack Obama’s citizenship and allegiance was further tainted when he was adopted by his stepfather Lolo Soetoro and Obama became an Indonesian citizen.

4. Some combination of the above allowed Obama to travel to Pakistan in 1981 when travel there was restricted to US citizens.

5. The only document presented by the Obama camp is a Hawaii COLB. There has been no substantiation that it is authentic and it does not establish country of birth. As Lou Dobbs stated, “It is a piece of paper that refers to another piece of paper.”

6. All other documentation, all school records, that would establish country of birth have been kept hidden and restricted.

7. No authentic documentation has been presented to establish that Barack Obama was born in the US.

8. The records of all hospitals in Hawaii have been searched. There is no record of Stanley Ann Obama ever having given birth to a child.

9. Barack Obama’s paternal grandmother in Kenya has stated on multiple occasions that she was present at Obama’s birth in Mombasa.

10. Others have stated, including multiple family members, officials and press, that Obama was born in Kenya.

This has been presented in a manner that a fifth grader can understand. However, if you have any questions, please contact me on this blog.

Failure to learn more about and understand this critical issue and take appropriate measures can only be construed as apathy,  ignorance or having an un American agenda. This includes the Mainstream Media and

Trent Franks town hall meeting, August 24, 2009, Franks did not say lawsuit?, pursue looking into Obama birth certificate,, Trent Franks believes Obama born in Hawaii?, Franks town hall statement

The Trent Franks town hall meeting on Saturday, August 22, 2009, in Kingman, AZ is stirring up a lot of controversy. According to the Mojave Daily News, Franks was reported as saying:

“Franks said there was not enough evidence that Obama is not an American citizen. He did say there was a lot of conflicting evidence of Obama’s citizenship and that he was considering filing a lawsuit, the only congressman to do so. Franks asked why the president did not simply produce a birth certificate.””

The Citizen Wells blog has reported on the town hall meeting as well as further comments coming from representative Franks office.
A comment was posted by a citizen from AZ:

“I have emailed Rep Franks several times,…. and He has responded to me each time….by email and also snail mail letter.  Pretty much saying that obama has been vetted and all is in order.  MAYBE we should email him some info to WAKE UP his mind a little bit.  You prepare what you want and I will make sure he gets it.  I will email it and I will also send him a certified letter.  WHAT do you think?  (I also emailed Sen Mccain,…. but never received any response at all)”
Today we received this comment from travelbugs:

“I just got off the phone with Congressman Franks office. He said that he did not say he would pursue a lawsuit, but rather that he would pursue looking into this. I also explained that it is much more than the long form birth certificate. I further stated that he had to simultaneously ask for the college records and passport records to be opened up to fully understand the depth of this. The staffer said they have been flooded by calls today about the birth issue and he took my message down, in great detail, and promised to pass it along to the Congressman. Everyone needs to call and relay this same information. He can get a fake birth certificate, but he cannot forge the passport and college records as well. These elements are critical to bringing about the truth!”


Politico is now reporting the following:

“Franks in July: Obama ‘born in Hawaii'”

“A month before Rep. Trent Franks (R-Ariz.) told a town hall audience that there is not enough evidence that President Barack Obama is a natural-born citizen, he told an interviewer that he believes Obama was “born in Hawaii.”
According to the Mohave Daily News, on Sunday, Franks told a town hall audience in Kingman, Ariz., that there is conflicting evidence as to whether the president was born in the United States. According to the report, the Republican congressman called on Obama to produce his birth certificate and threatened to sue the president over the issue.
But in July, when a camera crew from the liberal blog FireDogLake approached Franks to ask if he believed the so-called birthers, who dispute whether Obama was born in the United States and would therefore be ineligible to serve as president, Franks made his anti-birther position pretty clear.
“I believe Barack Obama was born in Hawaii, stayed within the United States and, therefore, is a constitutionally natural-born citizen of this country,” Franks told the blog’s Mike Stark.”

I, Citizen Wells, today, August 24, 2009, submitted a request to meet with Trent Franks. I will keep you informed of what comes of this.

So, representative Trent Franks, what is your position on Obama’s eligibility and not presenting a legitimate birth certificate? Your constituents and the American public want to know.

“The Huffington Post  Rachel Weiner  February 22, 2009 10:18 AM”

“The Cullman Times reports that Alabama Sen. Richard Shelby, in a
meeting with constituents, appeared to give some thought to rumors
questioning President Obama’s citizenship.”

“According to the Associated Press, state officials in Hawaii checked
health department records during the campaign and determined there
was no doubt Obama was born in Hawaii.

Politico’s Ben Smith says he has emailed Shelby’s spokesman to ask if
 the Senator actually believes there’s truth in the repeatedly
debunked rumor.”

What Dr. Fukino of the Hawaii Health
Department really said.

News Release
Phone:      (808) 586-4410     
Fax: (808) 586-4444
For Immediate Release: October 31, 2008 08-93
“There have been numerous requests for Sen. Barack Hussein Obama’s official birth certificate. State law (Hawai‘i Revised Statutes §338-18) prohibits the release of a certified birth certificate to persons who do not have a tangible interest in the vital record.
“Therefore, I as Director of Health for the State of Hawai‘i, along with the Registrar of Vital Statistics who has statutory authority to oversee and maintain these type of vital records, have personally seen and verified that the Hawai‘i State Department of Health has Sen. Obama’s original birth certificate on record in accordance with state policies and procedures.

What the AP writer wrote to
misrepresent Dr. Fukino’s
statement in an Orwellian

“State declares Obama birth certificate genuine
The Associated Press

Fri, Oct 31, 2008 (4:18 p.m.)

State officials say there’s no doubt Barack Obama was born in Hawaii.

Health Department Director Dr. Chiyome Fukino said Friday she and
the registrar of vital statistics, Alvin Onaka, have personally
verified that the health department holds Obama’s original birth

Fukino says that no state official, including Republican Gov. Linda
Lingle, ever instructed that Obama’s certificate be handled differently.

She says state law bars release of a certified birth certificate
to anyone who does not have a tangible interest.

Some Obama critics claim he was not born in the US.

Earlier Friday, a southwest Ohio magistrate rejected a challenge to
Obama’s citizenship. Judges in Seattle and Philadelphia recently
dismissed similar suits.”
Notice the heading and first sentence implying that
the Hawaiian Health Department officials had stated
that Obama was born in Hawaii.

Next notice that there are no quotes from either
official that state that Obama was born in Hawaii.
Where I come from that is not just Orwellian, but
an outright lie.

From the Alan Keyes lawsuit

“A press release was issued on October 31, 2008, by the Hawaii Department
of Health by its Director, Dr. Chiyome Fukino. Dr. Fukino said that she
had “personally seen and verified that the Hawaii State Department of
Health has Senator Obama’s original birth certificate on record in
accordance with state policies and procedures.” That statement failed to
resolve any of the questions being raised by litigation and press accounts.
Being “on record” could mean either that its contents are in the computer
database of the department or there is an actual “vault” original.”

“Further, the report does not say whether the birth certificate in the
“record” is a Certificate of Live Birth or a Certificate of Hawaiian Birth.
In Hawaii, a Certificate of Live Birth resulting from hospital documentation,
including a signature of an attending physician, is different from a
Certificate of Hawaiian Birth. For births prior to 1972, a Certificate of
Hawaiian Birth was the result of the uncorroborated testimony of one witness
and was not generated by a hospital. Such a Certificate could be obtained up
to one year from the date of the child’s birth. For that reason, its value
as prima facie evidence is limited and could be overcome if any of the
allegations of substantial evidence of birth outside Hawaii can be obtained.
The vault (long Version) birth certificate, per Hawaiian Statute 883.176
allows the birth in another State or another country to be registered in
Hawaii. Box 7C of the vault Certificate of Live Birth contains a question,
whether the birth was in Hawaii or another State or Country. Therefore,
the only way to verify the exact location of birth is to review a certified
copy or the original vault Certificate of Live Birth and compare the name of
the hospital and the name and the signature of the doctor against the
birthing records on file at the hospital noted on the Certificate of the
Live Birth.”

Latest statement from Allen Keyes


Why Obama is not eligible, Ben Smith, Rumors, Lies, Sloppy reporting, October 31, 2008, Obama Camp, Ben, How much are they paying you?

I have revealed the lies/misrepresentations/sloppy reporting of Ben Smith once before. I can take no more.

In an article dated October 31, 2008, Ben Smith completely misrepresents Obama’s citizenship status and the Philip J Berg lawsuit that states Obama is ineligible to be president. Here is an exerpt:

“Cover this! Inside the nastiest ’08 rumors

by Ben Smith”


Probably the most widely e-mailed Obama “tip” at the moment alleges that he isn’t a natural-born American citizen and thus isn’t eligible to run for president. This began in the die-hard pro-Hillary section of the blogosphere, which spent part of the summer discussing laws that deal with the citizenship of a child with one American parent born abroad. When it emerged that this challenge wouldn’t hold water if Obama had been born in the United States, the focus shifted to the allegation that he had been born outside the United States.

In August, a Pennsylvania lawyer, Philip Berg, filed suit in federal court in Philadelphia. Berg, who also has been active in arguing that there was “government complicity” in the attack on the World Trade Center, demanded that the court force Obama to produce his original birth certificate. The court dismissed the lawsuit.

So why isn’t this getting wide coverage? Well, first, there’s lots of evidence that Obama was born in the United States, and none that he wasn’t. The campaign handed over an official copy of his short-form birth certificate — the standard document produced by the Hawaii Department of Health — to And Poliltico has confirmed the authenticity of a contemporaneous announcement of his birth in the Honolulu Advertiser.

Berg fights on, though, on a website with supporters known as ChileMan, ChileWoman and MommaERadioRebels. He recently told conservative talk radio host Michael Savage that he has an audiotape of Obama’s Kenyan grandmother recalling the candidate’s birth in a Kenyan hospital.

“l’ll release it in a day or two,” he said six days ago.

A spokeswoman for the Hawaii Department of Health, Janice Okubo, said she’s forbidden by state law from releasing birth certificates, but directed a reporter to the item dismissing the rumors.”

Read more here:

If Ben Smith was being honest, or accurate or not in bed with the Obama camp, he would have stated that Berg is more concerned about Obama being an Indonesian citizen. That being said, there is no real evidence that Obama was born in the US. There is evidence that Obama was born in Kenya, including corroboration from multiple family members. The documents Smith is referring to can be obtained by anyone. And now for the piece de resistance. Obama put up a fake birth certificate on his website and later changed it and his story. John McCain produced a vault copy of his birth certificate for congress. Obama has resorted to legal wrangling to avoid accountability. Obama is Indonesian and has not provided an oath of allegiance to prove US citizenship. In a journalistic feat of extraordinary proportions, Smith quotes (regurgitates left wing propaganda) Annenberg’s, which now has zero credibility. 

So why is Ben Smith and reporting lies and misrepresentations? Which combination of the following applies:

  • Sloppy reporting.
  • Bias.
  • Sensationalism.
  • In bed with the Obama camp.
  • Getting paid by Obama camp or puppeteers controlling Obama.
  • No concern for this country or the Constitution.
  • An elitist attitude of superior insights and all knowing persona.

So, Ben Smith, care to respond?

I triple dog dare you!
