Politico.com, 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”

“OBAMA’S CITIZENSHIP

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 Factcheck.org. 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 FactCheck.org item dismissing the rumors.”

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 Factcheck.org, which now has zero credibility. 

So why is Ben Smith and Politico.com 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!

Obama, Joe Biden, Rumors, Biden out?, Hillary in?, October 5, 2008, DNC sources, Washington insiders, Larry Sinclair, Philip J Berg, Obama not qualified, Obama indictment, Democrats, Feedback from public?

I am certain there is a  Shakespeare quote that applies and the John Edward’s affair was considered a rumor for quite a while.

I received an email today:

“Quote:

Let me share some info with you that I have gotten from excellent sources within the DNC: 

On or about October 5th, Biden will excuse himself from the ticket, citing health problems, and he will be replaced by Hillary. This is timed to occur after the VP debate on 10/2.”

Now consider the following:

Citizen Wells article September 12, 2008:

Last night I spoke to Larry Sinclair. He was given a heads up from some Washington insiders that he made contact with months ago. I was already aware of the insiders. I have discussed Joe Biden’s comments with bloggers and those around me. Even Rush Limbaugh has been raising questions about Biden. Here is the post I made last night:

https://citizenwells.wordpress.com/2008/09/11/joe-biden-hillary-clinton-philip-j-berg-obama-lawsuit-biden-comments-larry-sinclair-hillary-replace-obama-hillary-replace-biden-did-biden-open-the-door-to-bow-out-biden-dropping-out/

I received an email this afternoon and here is a portion of it:

“We have received information from sources high in the Democratic Party that , in a total desperation move, Hillary Rodham Clinton will replace the hapless Joe Biden as V-P candidate on the Obama ticket.   I will send out more information on this in several minutes.   Hillary Clinton has said that Barack Obama is not qualified to be Commander-in-Chief.  He hasn’t grown any more qualified presumably in the past few weeks.  As the saying goes, “It took a Republican to have the Obama Dems name a woman to the ticket.”
 

 

 

Can this possibly be true?

Will Hillary replace Biden?

Is Obama qualified to be president?

Is Hillary posturing to replace Obama?

My God, this does sound like a soap opera!

I do not believe many Hillary supporters would back the ticket with her as VP. The damage may have already been done.

Are the Democrats testing the waters?

Citizen Wells article September 11, 2008:

However, there is another story that is connected to the Philip J
Berg lawsuit and other stories.

For several days, commenters on this blog, other bloggers and people
around me have been discussing Joe Biden and especially the comments
he recently made about Hillary Clinton. Is Joe Biden opening the
door to bow out? Was this part of a prearranged plan? Rush Limbaugh
claims to have predicted Biden’s actions for some time.

A few hours ago, I posted the following on twitter.com/citizenwells
and I did so without discussing it with Larry Sinclair. Here is what
I posted:

Option

1. Obama disqualified/indicted before election.

2. Obama disqualified/indicted after election, before oath of office.

3. Obama impeached/indicted after oath of office.

4. Obama loses (preferred). Hillary waits 4 years.

Hillary’s odds are good.

For months I have read hundreds of comments regarding the election
and I have come to the conclusion that there is something resembling
a collective consciousness occuring.

Larry Sinclair called me a few minutes ago about some information
he received and about conversations we had when he was in Washington
DC for the Democrats Meeting. (Clarification for MSM, ongoing
conversations occur when you follow a story). All I can say about
what he told me then is that it involved people connected to
Hillary. Larry told me he justed posted a new article and here it is:

“Thursday, September 11, 2008
IS JOE BIDEN GOING TO WITHDRAW FROM THE OBAMA TICKET TO MAKE ROOM FOR HILLARY?
Is Joe Biden going to withdraw from the Obama/Biden ticket to make room for Hillary Clinton?

Could some of my meetings and phone conversation while in DC in May and June of 2008 now being used to have Joe Biden withdraw for personal or medical reasons from the Democratic ticket, making way for Hillary Clinton? This is the feeling coming from some people and it would explain some high level contacts and communications in May and June while I was in DC.

Nothing would surprise me in the Obama camp and I can only say I hope that there is no truth to the emails I am receiving.”

Honestly folks, With Obama, Biden, Pelosi and Reid running the Democrat Party, would anything surprise you?

A scarier thought just occurred to me. Did Nancy Pelosi push Obama through the DNC Convention knowing she had a shot at inheriting the presidency?
