Is the fake birth certificate REALLY my fault?
It's all my fault the birth certificate is fake. At least that's what my critics apparently think.
By Donald Hank
Yesterday I told my friends to hold off on sending me emails because I have a big project to deal with. But as usual, something gigantic happened in the news: Obama revealed his "birth certificate," which was quickly debunked as a fake by computer graphics experts. I sent out alerts to my usual list to a very short piece I wrote showing incontrovertible evidence that the new "birth certificate" touted by Obama on the White House site is fake. The article included a video made and narrated by an expert on computer graphics who showed why it is fake. It was disarmingly easy to understand. Nothing very technical.
Then for those die-hards who don't believe anything unless it has the Mainstream Media or White House seal of approval on it, I included a simple test that people can use to convince themselves.
I actually did hear from some of the brighter stars on my correspondence list how they too suspected the doc was a fake and they agreed with me.
But I got a surprisingly large number of complaints that this whole thing had gone too far and it was obvious I was to blame for dragging America away from the implementation of Obama's utopian agenda. In addition, many complained it was simply too technical for them to grasp. They could hear the words but they couldn't comprehend them.
The message was clear: people were tired of this game and they wanted to talk about more substantive issues.
But wait. Wasn't that the Democrat argument?
If you had just perpetrated a gigantic hoax on the US public, wouldn't you want to divert attention away from it by telling them it was not important and that America has better things to do than to worry about whether the president of the United States is actually qualified to hold that office and whether he was perpetrating childish hoaxes by photo-shopping an obviously fake birth certificate?
Let me point out the obvious, again.
Obama's latest caper is so childish, so sophomoric, so lacking in brains and so obviously a hoax that even a child can see through it, and if that isn't some of the biggest news of the century, then I can't imagine what is.
In political terms, this means that if the same people who put so much energy into the "where's the birth certificate" campaign were to hold out just a little longer, the usurper would be so discredited only a tiny handful would vote for him in 2012. After all, who wants a president who is obviously misleading them, and bankrupting their country to boot?
But America blinked, and that blink was tantamount to Washington giving up at the signing of the peace treaty with England.
Imagine if George Washington had gone to the signing, pen in hand, ready to accept England's capitulation, and after drinking a glass of champagne with his troops, tossed his official copy of the Treaty of Paris into the waste can and said, "ah, ya know what? It's time to put this whole thing behind us and start a new chapter. Tell King George he can keep ruling us. I just need to rest."
"But Sir, many of us sacrificed our lives and fortunes to defeat this tyrant. "
"My good man, we have more important things to do than to insult the King."
"But we thought you agreed that he was a tyr. "
"Enough! There are much more important things to do than to accuse poor King George of ruling us unfairly. Why, there's new taxes to be levied and a government to be set up."
"Taxes to be levied? But by whom, Sir?"
"By the King, who else would be qualified to levy them? Someone must pay for the costs of this dreadful war and raising taxes is the best way."
"But Sir, with all due respect, we don't think the King has any authority over Americans any more now that we have won the war."
"Well, I will soon be the King's governor and I will decide whether he has authority over us."
Some ending, huh?
Yet Obama, who has declared war on the American way of life, on our freedoms and our values in so many ways, has just handed us a clear unmitigated victory — by uploaing an obviously fake photo-shopped birth certificate onto the White House site — and we are doing precisely what my fictitious Washington did, ceding victory to the enemy, pretending that he is
worthy to lead us. For the first time, in a long and arduous battle, we have just glimpsed victory — an obvious hoax perpetrated by the putative president of the US — and instead of seizing the day and declaring it for what it is, we have absurdly thrown in the towel to the obvious loser! And the theoretical George Washington in my story is the GOP and the RINO lineup we face in 2012, all of whom have aided and abetted him in this sordid affair.
But you know, winners don't behave like these fair-weather patriots. My kids tell me that accomplished musicians put in sometimes 10 hours a day practicing.
Can you imagine a talented singing star practicing for years and dreaming of making the big time, and then a week before the big stage appearance in the already sold-out concert guaranteed to make his career, suddenly saying, "ya know, I need a week off. I'm tired of all this practice, practice, practice. The h— with it! Let someone else take my place."
That is America today.
After all the lies about the birth certificate, the fake document foisted on a gullible public, the insults to our intelligence, instead of blaming the architect of all this misery, gullible ADD suffering Americans turn on the ones who see the emperor is naked. These tag-alongs don't really care who rules them or whether we have a Republic or not. They just wanted to keep up the appearance of being patriots who care about their country — when it's convenient.
I know I am addressing a dwindling audience of the faithful here, and you are the precious few who won't give up because you know what is at stake and how important the truth is — not the contrived, fabricated truth of the media and Ruling Class, but the absolute, objective truth, the truth we get at by using the only known method for accessing truth: the scientific method of inquiry and unbiased examination of the data, which we scrapped a while back in favor of consensus (post-modernism) — the uninformed public now decides, based on what they've been told by the Ruling Class. We traded our birthright for a facile truth, which is synonymous with lie, and we're ok with that.
But be forewarned: if America can't earn her birthright — her right to freedom — then she most certainly doesn't deserve it.
As for the rest, I don't know about you, but I see victory dead ahead, and if you don't want to pick yourself up and claim it, well, tell ya what: Uncork yourself another brew and sit yourself down to another exciting episode of American Idol (woopie!). You may not have a job tomorrow, but who cares? We working stiffs will carry you.
Meanwhile, my friends and I — diehards who just can't seem to say goodbye to the American experiment and hello to the USSA — will carry you to the goal post and we will still win this war.
Because real Americans don't give up.
PS: I have had this theory since first seeing the new botched BC construct. What if a person who has been screwed by Obama offered as a "friend" to make a perfect birth certificate using a BC from Hawaii dating to around that same time. He starts with a doc signed by a doc of that hospital and uses just the signature and a few other little items. But this guy is not a true friend of Obama's, just a prankster who likes mischief (all leftists do), and he decides to stick it to his "friend" and design it so that the doc downloaded from the internet comes apart in layers. I am sorry, but I have trouble believing this was not on purpose, and I also can't believe Obama made it look this suspicious just to stick his finger in our eye.
There is something else going on here! Watch for it.
JUST IN. THIS IS THE MOST COMPLETE DEBUNKING OF THE "BC" THAT I HAVE SEEN:
