Who are the real conspiracy theorists? ~ By Joseph Farah

Note to Joseph Farah: I loved the column, but there was one slight flaw. When you are called a "conspiracy theorist," it doesn't mean that YOU are part of a conspiracy. What that actually means is that you believe that there was some kind of conspiracy in order to hide Obama's status as a natural born citizen, and be Constitutionally eligible to be President of the United States. As your column states, and as you have mentioned many times in the past, you "remain absolutely agnostic on the question of whether Obama is constitutionally eligible to serve." And that is very much how I feel, and the way Obama and his minions are acting, it does seem to make one feel "certain he's hiding something – deliberately, aggressively, passionately and, I might add, desperately."

I remain absolutely agnostic on the question of whether Obama is constitutionally eligible to serve. I just plain don't know – and I'm honest enough to say it, over and over again.

But, with 35 years of experience in journalism under my belt, I can also say I am 100 percent certain he's hiding something – deliberately, aggressively, passionately and, I might add, desperately.

There are many in the press today caricaturing me as a "conspiracy theorist" simply because I, like millions of other Americans, insist on actually seeing proof of Barack Obama's constitutional eligibility.

I've never alleged a conspiracy. Obama was given a free pass by an opponent who had his own eligibility issues. Not much of a conspiracy necessary – especially with Obama accountable only to a fawning press and scared-of-their-shadows Republicans.

But "conspiracy theorist" is an easy epithet to hurl.

One good question to ask, the next time you hear someone call me that name, is this: "Who is Joseph Farah conspiring with?"

I'd sure like to know the answer to that question.

I don't see a lot of high-profile or powerful people beating down my door to join "the conspiracy."

All I am doing – and all I have ever done on this issue of constitutional eligibility – is what I would expect every American citizen and especially every member of the press to do: Hold arguably the most powerful politician in the world to accountable to his pledges of "transparency," honesty, the rule of law, his oath of office and the same standard to which his lackluster, unworthy Republican opponent in the 2008 election was held.

Is that too much to ask?

Does that really make me part of the "fringe" in America in 2010?

I make no apologies for pushing this issue. The more I am criticized, the more I realize I am really getting to Obama and his acolytes.

It's hardly a "conspiracy theory" to state the obvious: Obama has not proven he is constitutionally eligible. In fact, he has made no effort to do so. All he does is mau-mau about not questioning his citizenship.

If he can't stand being questioned, he has no business being in public office.

  1. Farah's problem is that the proof has already been shown, and it is overwhelming, but he refuses to believe it. So, when he claims that he only wants to see the proof, he is not telling the truth.

    His first teacher showed him that 2+2 = 4, but he keeps on saying "I need to see the proof." She, considering him a waste of time, has gone on to work with the smarter members of the class.

    Here is the proof. Obama has shown (posted and showed the physical copy to both FactCheck and Politifact) his birth certificate from Hawaii. It is the official birth certificate, and it is the only birth certificate that Hawaii currently sends out. Hawaii no longer sends out copies of the original birth certificate (

    That was the birth certificate that Hawaii sent to Obama in 2007, as it says on it, and that is the only birth certificate that he can show because it is the only birth certificate that he has. However, it is the legal birth certificate of Hawaii, and it is accepted as proof of birth in the USA by the US State Department and the branches of the US military.

    AND, in Obama's case, the two top officials of the Department of Health of Hawaii (who happen to be members of a Republican governor's administration) have said twice that the original document in the files shows that Obama was born in Hawaii.

    Obama's Kenyan grandmother never said that Obama was born in Kenya. She said that he was born in Hawaii. You can hear her say “America, Hawaii” in response to the question: “Whereabouts was he born?" Listen to the complete tape, until after the question “Whereabouts was he born?”
