Your Joseph Farah Birther Lie of the Day
Topic: WorldNetDaily

Joseph Farah just can't stop lying about WorldNetDaily's coverage of the Obama birth certificate, can he?

IN his Aug. 6 column, he asserts: "Once again, I am not making accusations about where Obama was born."


  • "The only living person who claims publicly to have been present at Obama's birth is his paternal grandmother, Sarah Obama, who says the birth took place in Mombassa, Kenya."-- Farah, July 23
  • Of course, the only living person in the world who claims to have been present for Obama's birth is his paternal grandmother, Sarah Obama, who says it took place in Mombasa, Kenya. -- Farah, July 15

Further, as we've documented, that claim is false -- a fact Farah and WND have hidden from their readers.

Telling a lie about where someone said Obama was born is, in fact, making an accusation about where Obama was born.

Farah also writes:

His "evidence" is a document that could never and will never suffice. It's called a certification of live birth. It is not a birth certificate. It does not prove even the first question we ask for proof of natural born citizenship: Was the subject born in the United States?

It wasn't just possible to obtain such a document having been born outside the country, it was actually quite easy. All it would take was the word of one parent.

But since certifications of live birth are generated  from the original birth certificate, Farah is saying that the original "long-form" birth certificate, because it could have been based on fraudulent information, is not acceptable evidence of Obama's birth -- even though that's what he's been screaming for for months.

In short: There is no evidence Farah will accept as sufficient proof of Obama's birth in Hawaii.

And the cycle continues. And Farah sells a few more bumper stickers.
