Porter, WND Still Clinging to Obama Birth Certificate Fantasy
Topic: WorldNetDaily

WorldNetDaily columnist Janet Folger Porter is still desperately clinging to the hate-driven, fraudulent fantasy that Barack Obama is not an American citizen. From her Jan. 6 column:

What if an imposter from another country ran for the presidency and won?

What if the media blocked any news of his birthplace and citizenship?

What if the media censorship even blocked paid advertising that tried to expose it?

What if no one had the courage to challenge or verify it?

What if he was inaugurated illegally?

What if the military had to answer to a commander in chief who was illegitimate?

What if every law he signed was invalid?

What if every appointment he made was improper?

What if it all happened on our watch?


Write to the Supreme Court and ask them to do what they took an oath to do: make sure the Constitution is being upheld.

Porter has yet to address the concerns we've raised that she may be misusing the resources of her group Faith2Action for her own personal anti-Obama crusade, either here or at the Faith2Action website.

Meanwhile, Bob Unruh uncritically quotes Porter's rant in a Jan. 6 WND article insisting that "The lingering questions continue to leave a cloud over the impending presidency of a man whose relatives have reported he was born in Kenya and who has decided, for whatever reason, not to release a bona fide copy of his original birth certificate in its complete form."

Of course, neither Unruh nor Porter mention the fact that WND itself declared the birth certificate to be "authentic," adding that the lawsuit on the issue filed by Philip Berg "relies on discredited claims."
