It's the deceitfulness, stupid!

Related Link » Suborned in the U.S.A.: The birth-certificate controversy is about Obama’s [dis]honesty, not where he was born.

“To summarize: What Obama has made available is a Hawaiian ‘certification of live birth’ (emphasis added), not a birth certificate (or what the state calls a ‘certificate of live birth’). The certification form provides a short, very general attestation of a few facts about the person’s birth: name and sex of the newborn; date and time of birth; city or town of birth, along with the name of the Hawaiian island and the county; the mother’s maiden name and race; the father’s name and race; and the date the certification was filed. This certification is not the same thing as the certificate, which is what I believe we were referring to in the editorial as ‘the state records that are used to generate birth certificates [sic] when they are requested’. To the contrary, ‘the state recordsare the certificate. They are used to generate the more limited birth certifications on request. As the Jeffers post shows, these state records are far more detailed.
The information in the certification may be identical as far as it goes to what’s in the complete state records, but there are evidently many more details in the state records than are set forth in the certification. Contrary to the editors’ description, those who want to see the full state record — the certificate or the so-called ‘vault copy’ — are not on a wild-goose chase for a ‘secondary document cloaked in darkness’. That confuses their motives (which vary) with what they’ve actually requested (which is entirely reasonable). Regardless of why people may want to see the vault copy, what’s been requested is a primary document that is materially more detailed than what Obama has thus far provided.
Now, let’s address motives for a moment. Are some of those demanding the full state records engaged in a futile quest to prove Obama is not a U.S. citizen? Are they on what the editors call ‘the hunt for a magic bullet that will make all the unpleasant complications of [Obama’s] election and presidency disappear’? Sure they are. But not everyone who wants to see the full state records falls into that category. I, for one, have very different reasons for being curious.
The fact is that Obama’s account of his background is increasingly revealed as a fabrication, not his life as lived; his utterances reflect the expediencies of the moment, not the truth. What is supposed to save the country from fraudulence of this sort is the media. Here, though, the establishment press is deep in Obama’s tank — so much so that they can’t even accurately report his flub of a ceremonial opening pitch lest he come off as something less than Sandy Koufax. Astonishingly, reporters see their job not as reporting Obama news but as debunking Obama news, or flat-out suppressing it.
But we should know. The point has little to do with whether Obama was born in Hawaii. I’m quite confident that he was. The issue is: What is the true personal history of the man who has been sold to us based on nothing but his personal history? On that issue, Obama has demonstrated himself to be an unreliable source and, sadly, we can’t trust the media to get to the bottom of it. What’s wrong with saying, to a president who promised unprecedented ‘transparency’: Give us all the raw data and we’ll figure it out for ourselves?” [my emphasis added; TBH]

It's all about Obama's deceitfulness, as well as the MSM's efforts on his behalf to suppress it. The media had been incoporated by our Founding Fathers for an important role in our rule of law. Hence, we have the pride of place for 'freedom of the press', situated between 'freedom of speech' and the 'right to peaceably assemble' within the First Amendment to the United States Constitution (the first part of the United States Bill of Rights). They (the "press") have shown themselves to be completely unworthy of the Founding Fathers' trust.

Not only has Obama's Administration forfeited his assumed high road in his election campaign, he has continually manipulated much of his personal history to suit whatever purpose was his highest priority at the moment of his fabrications. You know it; I know it; and most certainly the media know it to be so. Nevertheless, his deceitfulness is not only tolerated; it's extolled by his devotees.

The Fourth Estate, even more than the principal culprit in this mendaciousness, have disgraced the Constitution and the Nation's integrity they were meant to uphold.

  1. The time lines, places, actions, motives, when analyzed, support, and are consistent with, what is the answer to the Obama birth puzzle:

    Obama’s grandmother is his mother and his mother is his sister.

    Think about it. Review all the facts and claims.
