“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 and millions of concerned Americans

“As soon as all the corrections which happened to be necessary in any partiucular number of the Times had been assembled and collated, that number would be reprinted, the original copy destroyed, and the corrected copy placed on the files in it’s stead. This process of continuation alteration was applied not only to newspapers, but to books, periodicals, pamphlets, posters, leaflets, films, sound tracks, cartoons, photographs–to every kind of literature or documentation which might conceivably hold any political or ideological significance. Day by day and almost minute by minute the past was brought up to date. In this way every prediction made by the Party could be shown by documentary evidence to be correct; nor was any item of news, or expression of opinion, which conflicted with the needs of the moment, ever allowed to be on record.”…George Orwell, “1984″

UPDATE: NPR SCRUBS POWELL’S STATEMENT ABOUT THE BIRTHER SUMMIT CHALLENGE

UPDATE: BirtherReport.com provides before and after audio and screenshots

In a recent NPR interview, Gen. Colin Powell stated, “The president had to produce his birth certificate because there was still this coterie of people in the country who won’t believe. And even after he produced his long-form birth certificate, and Mr. Trump decided he better find another thing to do besides run for president, there are still people who don’t accept that.In fact, as you may have noticed, some people are trying to persuade me to listen to their arguments as to why he is not a citizen, and I don’t choose to participate in that any longer. We’ve spent enough time on this issue. President Obama was born in the United States. He was born in Hawaii. He’s shown his certificates, and the rest of this is just conspiratorial nonsense.” Click here to listen to Powell’s original statement.

 

However, NPR’s Morning Edition website now shows the following statement in their transcript of that interview: “. . . The president had to produce his birth certificate because there was still this coterie of people in the country who won’t believe. And even after he produced his long-form birth certificate, and Mr. Trump decided he better find another thing to do besides run for president. There are still people who don’t accept that. We spent enough time on this issue. The rest of this is just conspiratorial nonsense.”

 

The Birther Summit is unaware of who might have requested the redaction, but Powell’s original comments have certainly been edited. As to any notion that Gen. Powell might not have been speaking specifically about The Birther Summit’s challenge of him, it can be concluded easily that he would not have been speaking about any other group, as The Birther Summit is the only one that has publicly challenged him to such a discussion. Before discussing Powell’s comments, The Birther Summit does want to assert that NPR’s journalistic dishonesty in this seems to underscore the public’s perception of NPR’s vastly left-leaning bias, and is generally indicative of the national media as a whole.

BarackObamaPresidentObamaMeetsColinPowellPiCEW3D3D8RlAs to his original comments, it is clear that Gen. Powell is still running cover for Barack Obama, as his statement is devoid of fact. First, it is apparent to many Americans that what Barack Obama released on April 27, 2011 was a blatantly cheap computer-generated image that was not a scan, copy, or photograph of any real document. Next, Gen. Powell stated “. . . some people are trying to persuade me to listen to their arguments as to why he is not a citizen.” Reading through our challenge, it is obvious that it included no statement that Barack Obama is not a citizen; however, as those of us who have been lifting the banner of truth in this for nearly three years have become accustomed, this is a common straw-man argument that deceptive liberals use (please pardon our redundant use of “deceptive”).

 

The fact of the matter is, the general public has no way of knowing whether or not Barack Obama is a “citizen” because he has provided no evidence to settle that matter conclusively, as forgeries establish nothing factual. However, The Birther Summit is fully prepared to present evidence that Barack Obama is not a “natural born Citizen,” as required by Article II, Section 1 of the Constitution. Gen. Powell conveniently forgot the “natural born” part in his comment. Arnold Schwarzenegger is a “citizen,” Gen. Powell, but you know that he cannot be president.

 

Next, Powell said, “. . . I don’t choose to participate in that any longer. We’ve spent enough time on this issue.” It was just this past May when Powell publicly stated that he enjoyed it when, “President Obama took out his birth certificate and blew away Donald Trump and all the birthers!” So, it appears that Gen. Powell is willing to “participate in that” on his terms, but refuses to be called out on the issue when it is understood he will be confronted with the facts, and those facts don’t line up with his statements.

 

Powell concluded his remarks about this with, “He was born in Hawaii. He’s shown his certificates, and the rest of this is just conspiratorial nonsense.” Unless Colin Powell has been privy to what has been hidden from the rest of the world, that statement was foolish at best, and purposely dishonest at worst. Moreover, to try to marginalize the issue by calling it “conspiratorial nonsense,” especially before actually hearing the evidence, is further proof of Colin Powell’s complicity in the matter. The Birther Summit believes that rendering a decision on a matter before weighing the evidence is an unwise posture for anyone to maintain.

 

Here is retired Commander Charles Kerchner’s response to Gen. Powell’s comments:

 

Colin Powell is bringing much dishonor upon himself in not standing up to support and defend the U.S. Constitution in the face of the clear and present danger in having a person, Obama, occupying the White House and in command of our military, for whom we do not conclusively know, and proven to any controlling legal authority, his true legal identity. In addition Collin Powell is saying nothing about Obama’s revealed history of engaging in criminal felonies and activities before and after his accession to the Oval Office, i.e., SSN fraud, Draft Registration fraud, and forging Birth Certificate documents. Both the long-form and the short-form are clear forgeries per numerous digital image and typographic experts.

 

You would think the proven draft registration fraud by Obama would definitely get the attention of what had been an outstanding military leader such as Powell. He has abandoned all the teachings military leadership as to duty and honor and adherence to common core values of truth and honesty. General Powell is now clearly shirking his oath as a commissioned officer to support and defend the U.S. Constitution. He cannot intellectually honestly say he does not know about the charges against Obama and the seriousness of them and the threat our nation faces with a usurper of unknown true legal ID as Commander in Chief of our military and the need for Congress to launch a congressional investigation of these charges under oath and with full subpoena power to get to the original paper documents in question as to Obama’s contemporaneous 1961 birth registration records, SSN records, and draft registration records.

 

Powell had a highly successful military career up to this time and this incident and challenge. However, he is failing the call of duty and honor in not confronting the usurper in the White House who is trampling on the U.S. Constitution and presents a great danger to our national security. Powell is failing to provide honest and honorable leadership to support and defend the U.S. Constitution and the Rule of Law and live up to his commissioned officer’s oath at a critical time in our nation’s history. History will not be too kind to General Powell for what he has and has not done on the issue of exposing Obama’s true legal identity and criminal activities and that he is instead acting and speaking in ways to facilitate the original fraud and the continuing cover-up.

 

I once admired and respected General Collin Powell. I no longer do. If I met him in his uniform at this point in time, I would salute the uniform but not the man! At some point in his life Powell has allowed the Washington DC political cesspool to totally corrupt him and any sense of honor he once had during his military career. He is disgracing and dishonoring his oath to the U.S. Constitution.

 

Additionally, Lt. Commander Walt Fitzpatrick (Ret) has done extensive work to expose the numerous commissions of treason committed by Barack Obama, which causes one to wonder how a decorated military hero like Gen. Colin Powell could be so unaware of the multiple dubious issues surrounding someone to whom he openly lends his loyal support, if those issues are so obvious to other military officer veterans. Actually, we stopped “wondering” quite some time ago. Whether Colin Powell is running cover for Barack Obama because of Obama’s race or his politics is immaterial, as he is supporting an illegal president—one who has gone to great lengths to obfuscate his true identity. A true soldier who respects his oath, as well as the principles of duty, honor, and country, would unequivocally oppose the current resident of our White House.

 

Whom do you think we should challenge?

 

While our original offer to Gen. Powell stands, and it is apparent that many citizens would like to see him do the right thing in this by listening honestly to the evidence and allowing a charity to receive $15,000, it appears that Gen. Powell, as well as the four television commentators we subsequently included, continue to dodge it. Because of that, The Birther Summit is open to YOUR suggestions regarding whom you think we should challenge next. Just visit our Contact page and offer your suggestions about who should be added to the list of people who are (so far) afraid of the facts (apparently, so much so that they will not offer three hours of their time for a charity to receive a check for $15,000). Please also explain why you would like to see the person(s) you suggest added to our challenge. Remember, elected officials cannot be a part of the challenge, as they would not be able to be a part of a challenge that includes a monetary reward.
