Eligibility story is dead? ~ By Joseph Farah

By Joseph Farah Posted: July 27, 2009 1:00 am Eastern © 2009 I love the way the media enterprises that have never investigated the eligibility story when it was alive now feel compelled to pronounce it dead. CNN President Jon Klein sent an e-mail to his staff last week explaining, "This story is dead." Apparently he felt compelled to make the official statement because one CNN rogue, Lou Dobbs, had recently discovered the fact that Barack Obama had never established his bona fides as a constitutionally eligible president – failing to prove he was a "natural born citizen" as his Republican opponent was forced to do in Senate hearings. Why was Klein so sure there was nothing to it? His reasoning was very strange indeed – and his logic even more twisted. It seems CNN researchers contacted the Hawaii Public Health Department about the missing long-form birth certificate – the only document absolutely essential to determining where Obama was actually born. What they were told was stunning. The long-form birth certificate no longer exists! It was destroyed in 2001 when Hawaii went paperless. Now, what's shocking about that? The same media outlet that claimed the story was dead because the birth certificate hasn't existed in eight years previously claimed that a Hawaiian official had personally inspected it to determine its authenticity. Now maybe I'm an unusual newsman, but when I get two entirely contradictory statements from public officials, it makes me more suspicious and curious, not less. How is it that state health director Dr. Chiyome Fukino was able personally inspect the birth certificate in November 2008 when it had been destroyed seven years earlier? How is it that was able to have "seen, touched, examined and photographed the original birth certificate" around the same time if it was destroyed in 2001? These supposedly first-hand observations have heretofore been used as prima facie evidence that a long-form birth certificate confirms Obama's story about a Hawaiian birth Aug. 4, 1961. But somebody's lying. How can both stories be true? How can they both be used to suggest there is no story here? Where is the natural curiosity by the rest of the press? How is it that they can accept at face value two patently contradictory statements and claim they both provide evidence of Obama's natural born citizenship and eligibility for the highest office in the United States?
