Passportgate – A History

One theory

In his recent article, Cashill speculated that the reason for the cauterization might be connected to Obama’s 1981 trip to Pakistan, a trip mentioned by candidate Obama only after the passport files had been “cauterized.”  This heretofore unmentioned trip amazed Jake Tapper of ABC News.  Pam Geller of Atlas Shrugs also speculated that the passport breach was connected to Obama’s 3-week trip to Pakistan when he was a young college student.  A logical theory.  It’s covered in depth by Jack Cashill in his recent story.

Another theory

Perhaps the passport file contained a copy of Obama’s original birth certificate, which had to be cauterized to match what Obama chose to reveal to the world in June 2008 on a campaign website (Fight the Smears) and on the blog The Daily Kos.  That being his short-form certification of live birth (SFCOLB), which was released in response to a growing clamor among the electorate for proof of his eligibility.

Immediately upon release of that “document”, which was purported to be a scan of an authentic certified vital record from Hawaii, the image came under intense scrutiny from the “pajamas media”, but not the mainstream media, which chose to abrogate its sacred trust under the First Amendment and ignore anything questionable about this presidential candidate’s background. 

The image looked nothing like how a scanned document should look.  The embossed seal and registrar’s stamp were not evident, among other issues raised.

In response to the controversy, Obama-connected FactCheck blog posted what they implied were recent photographs of the paper document, taken by their representatives at Obama campaign headquarters in Chicago. Their story, with photos, was published August 21, 2008.  The writer implied that the photos proved that the document was authentic and that Obama was born in Hawaii, although the FactCheck blog representatives are not certified forensic document examiners.  Only FactCheck representatives have ever claimed to have seen that document in paper form. No member of the media.  No member of the public.  That remains true to this day.

Some readers of the FactCheck story were puzzled by the author’s insistence that the SFCOLB

has all the elements the State Department requires for proving citizenship to obtain a U.S. passport: “your full name, the full name of your parent(s), date and place of birth, sex, date the birth record was filed, and the seal or other certification of the official custodian of such records.”

Why was FactCheck blog writing about the State Dept.?  Why were they writing about the data items required on documentation in order to obtain a passport? Especially in the context of whether or not a person has proved his eligibility for the presidency, which requires natural born citizenship–a standard much higher than simple citizenship?

Naturalized citizens are not eligible for the presidency, and yet they can and do receive passports from the State Dept.

Who was talking about passports?  Not those questioning the SFCOLB.  Soon those FactCheck photographs came under intense scrutiny, too.

It’s the EXIF data

FactCheck blog originally published nine high-resolution photographs of the “document”, taken from different angles and under rather odd lighting.  Some dark, with shadows falling across particularly pertinent parts of the certificate, such as where the embossed Hawaii Dept. of Health seal should appear.  Others had flares of light obscuring data, such as the father’s name.

Not one photo showed the entire back side of the certificate, which is where the registrar’s certification–signature and date stamp–should appear.  However, the images were published with the embedded EXIF data intact:

Digital cameras will record the current date and time and save this in the metadata. Camera settings–This includes static information such as the camera model and make, and information that varies with each image such as orientation (rotation), aperture, shutter speed, focal length, metering mode, and ISO speed information.

Below are some metadata tags from the second photograph published in that article by FactCheck blog:

Camera: Canon PowerShot A570 IS
Lens: 5.8 – 23.2 mm
Shot at 5.8 mm
Exposure: Auto exposure, 1/60 sec, f/4, ISO 80
Flash: Auto, Did not fire
Focus: Single, Face Detect, with a depth of field of from 0.39 m to infinity.
AF Area Mode: Multi-point AF or AI AF
Date: March 12, 2008   10:41:26PM (timezone not specified)
File: 2,304 × 3,072 JPEG (7.1 megapixels) Image compression: 92%

Note the date:  March 12, 2008.  Fully five months before FactCheck blog claims they went to Chicago to photograph the SFCOLB, and three months before the SFCOLB was published on the Obama campaign’s Fight the Smears website and the Daily Kos blog.

What else happened in March 2008?  Obama’s passport files were cauterized.  The date of the final breach of his passport file was March 14, 2008–two days after these photographs were taken of an alleged SFCOLB in Chicago. 

After the embedded EXIF metadata were reported on the Web by enterprising citizen researchers, FactCheck blog downsized the resolution of the photos and removed the EXIF data altogether.  After the long-form birth certificate was published on the White House blog in April 2011, FactCheck again changed their story, removed most of the photos, and summarized the previous article.

Obama supporters tried to explain away the discrepancy in the dates of these photos by saying that the photographers, being amateurs, probably incorrectly set the date on the camera.  The time on the EXIF data indicated it was around 10 p.m., except the photos seem to show sunlight streaming through windows.  One theory is that the photographer never set the camera’s date and time since he or she bought the camera.

A check of several digital cameras, which had never had the date or time reset since the day of purchase, showed that both had the correct date, but the time was off by about 12 hours–something that may be attributed to the fact that most digital cameras are built on the other side of the globe.  Check your own camera, if you’ve never changed the date and time.  Let us know what you find.

Whatever the case, why did FactCheck, a partisan blog, so quickly remove that EXIF data, if it wasn’t indicative of something, shall we say, too revealing? 

Three days after the photos were published, Israeli Insider newsmagazine staff wrote:

But the repeated references to State Department requirements for a passport take on a new significance in the light of the recognition, pointed out by an Israel Insider reader, that this “new” certificate of live birth is recorded as being photographed on March 12, 2008, and a contract employee of an Obama advisor — allegedly a former CIA agent — was caught breaking into Obama’s passport files on March 14, 2008. … The issue has never been whether or not Obama can prove U.S. citizenship well enough to get a passport. … The issues are where he was born, whether he is a natural born citizen under the Constitution, whether he ever was a citizen of another country, and, if so, whether he ever renounced that foreign citizenship.

This story from the Washington Times supplied a factoid which may indicate another link between the passport breach and the SFCOLB:

[The] intrusions appeared to be the result of “imprudent curiosity” on the part of contract employees who were hired last summer to help process passport applications.

In this instance, “last summer” was the summer of 2007, exactly when the SFCOLB was allegedly requested from and produced by the Hawaii Dept. of Health  for the Obama campaign, according to FactCheck blog.   It was the following summer that an image purporting to be a scan of that document appeared on the Internet.  Coincidence?  Perhaps, but there are an awful lot of coincidences and oddities swirling around Obama and his documentation.

  1. wow!!! that is a lot of great information thanks 🙂

  2. Very excellent, Miri. It’s good to go back over these past things now.

  3. Do tell…Do tell… I recall I first stated maybe “SAD” never ever got they played with our heads back then also.
    But may have jsut filed for a divorce to cover many of their lies.
    We started with TexasDarlin… searching for missing Lacy …(Scott Lee Peterson) he in fact got the death sentence so long ago. Seems like a life time…. Doing what were doing matters more than air itself ?…Lately…not so sure about that! I’m sick that the train is stalling on us all…. But the fruit is getting ripper and will soon fall from the tree…we do know this…. we didn’t do this for a hobby….right!
    Miri …paste and copy … joke … (no paste no scissors….I will figure that out…what about Gordo’s tips? I will look! thanks for this new info.

    • I’m sorry I didn’t explain, Zenway. Amazing, isn’t it, how long we’ve all been together? What I meant is that it seems you are typing links that you want to share. I’d hate it if I had to do that because I make too many typos and links usually make no logical sense! I wondered if you don’t have a mouse or a way to copy links from the address bar and them paste them into the comments?

      When you have the page displayed, put your pointer on the URL at the top. Right click the mouse, and click on “select all” from the little list. The URL will be highlighted. Then right click again and click on “copy” from the little list. Then go to the comment box on our blog, place the pointer within the box, right click the mouse and click on “paste”. Then the URL will be copied and pasted into the comment box, and you won’t have to remember it or risk making a typo. I usually open two windows or “tabs” on my browser, one for our blog and another for searching the Web. It makes it easier to copy and paste.

  4. There is some reason that people in the media were being threatened back then, hushed up, and also regular citizens being treated bad for asking questions and wanting to know something as simple as this: Is Obama a natural-born citizen, or is he even a citizen? This is not a bad question or a question that people should be getting threatened over at all. Doesn’t make sense.

    Can’t tell me something didn’t happen. So was/is he working with the CIA, or has our country been threatened that if he isn’t president, then someone will destroy our nation?

    I’ve seen that thrown out there before, that maybe we have nukes pointed at us, or so people were told. May not be true that we do, but someone could have threatened us saying that.

    • It’s the mystery with no answer, kitty. Been trying to make sense of it for 4 years now. It could actually be as simple as fear of being racist, fear of economic retribution (as Jesse Jackson has successfully pulled off against major corporations many times), or mafia-like machine politics taking over our entire government, aided and abetted by a complicit media, academia, progressive elites, all of whom WANT what Obama’s doing to happen. They’ve failed, within our form of government, to IMPOSE their solutions. They can’t get the People to vote in what they want. They so far haven’t succeeded in getting the courts to give them what they want–fundamental transformation via “reinterpreting” the clear words of the Constitution. And then, along with all that, we have the entire rest of the world that envies us and WANTS to see us brought down to their level. While Europe is getting rid of socialism because they have learned it doesn’t work, this potus is trying to impose it BECAUSE IT DOESN’T WORK and that’s the best way to bring America to its knees. We know his ideology. That’s what he’s doing and the useful idiots who believe in this utopia he pretends to want are helping.

      I hope it’s not that there are nukes pointed at us. It may be as simple as Soros threatening to pull the trigger on our economy. He’s brought down the economies of other countries. He’s behind most of the many progressive think tanks and so-called not-for-profits that fund this destruction of our Constitutional government.

  5. bogus potus

    a three dollar bill. fiat. collusion. a coup.

    an antiAmerican infiltrator, with a lot of help from his friends.

    “this is my last election…”

  6. oh, lest we forget, Stan the Man, standing beside the elitist drunk as he was coming or going, Aloha. you say goodbye, i say hello.

    Is Madelyn and “Anna” holed up somewhere together in cancer land?

    show me. don’t tell me. busted. superduper death and funeral records…

    Hi Toots! wish you were here, OH! you are. how convenient.

    • speaking of Toots, Madeline’s/Madelyn’s four or five Chicago addresses that she’s reported to have……Has anyone ever seen what those addresses were? I’ve seen it mentioned several places but if someone says they exist then what are they? Anyone know.
      And Renee, ever look into Anderson Cooper? The Stanislau Stanowski connection (that’s a du Pont connection of Delaware, which I can find Ann dupont and Stanley M. Payne, Shirley R. Payne and in with cynthia Payne, and Ann Pon (du pont) and Eugene Payne on 2499 Kapiolani Blvd. Apt 3605 (which goes to Pon). Complicated….yes.

  7. The comments are not worthy of the revelations in this story. This is something that should have been vetted long before now.

    • Thanks, nckel. Welcome. Don’t worry about comments being “worthy”. Our group of regulars has hashed and rehashed this story forever. We’ve already said it all. But it doesn’t stop us from saying it again. Obviously. 🙂

      This is “something that should have been vetted long before now.” We here have vetted it many times, but the mainstream media MOSTLY ignores this. I wrote the post to bring together things we’ve collectively discovered over the past few years and to do something with a long list of passport-breach links I saved. The narrative helps me understand as I write, so it’s an memory exercise that helps things fall into place.

      What’s interesting is that back then, in March 2008, there WAS NOT the total media blackout that we see today. There WERE numerous stories in the mainstream media about the incident. But as the story developed, the first signs of the coming blackout were there. I couldn’t include everything that I noticed.

      But one thing I did notice when reading the transcript of one of the early press briefings was that several times a reporter was on the verge of mentioning Brennan’s name and the State Dept. spokesperson cut him off before he said the name. It seemed obvious that Brennan’s name was not supposed to be brought into it. (If you’ve ever seen Gibbs or Carney cut off Lester Kinsolving in mid-sentence, then you know what I mean. But this was a GWB/Condi Rice spokesperson.)

      Then we got that ridiculously redacted “report” of the investigation. Then we saw how they widened the enquiry to pull in every file clerk who ever looked at Cher’s (made that up) passport file. For what? For the same reason that the cauterizer also looked at Clinton’s and McCain’s records? To cause confusion and deter people from deducing the real motive, which was to “cauterize” Obama’s file? To hide the identity of the “cauterizer”?

      Add to that Obama’s feigned outrage. We noticed it at the time and talked about THAT, too. Everything we’ve seen from him since then confirms our suspicions. That his outrage was fake. That he knew about this incident and why it happened and what it accomplished. The fake outrage and calls for investigation and punishment were of a piece with his usual snarking behavior. Enjoying the theater of it and having fun with pulling the wool over everyone’s eyes.

      So nine perps (at least) were named. Were ANY of the nine the cauterizer? Surely Condi Rice knows. She knows what was done, why it was done, and who did it. But everybody’s been in CYA mode since.

      Whatever is embarrassing in those files is KNOWN to Rice and the others who looked into it. That was the fatal decision point and they kicked the can down the road. Maybe his mother worked for the CIA. Maybe he did. Maybe he informed on his radical associates. I can see him doing it, if it would further his own goals. By any means necessary. Use “the man”. Take his money. Hide your real goals and allegiances. Get power. Double cross. (Can you say Alice Palmer?)

      Maybe they were simply afraid to let this incident destroy the first chance “African Americans” had to see a person who “looks like” them in the White House. I can understand the sentiment. It’s why so many people inadvisedly voted for him. Without vetting him. Without understanding who he is. Without looking beyond the alleged color of his skin.

      I’m not convinced that he even is African-American. He could be Lolo’s son. He could be Hawaiian. He could be Papuan. He could be Uncle Frank’s son. (Pops?) He could be a foundling. Adopted. He could be anyone. We don’t know because everything’s been “cauterized.”

      Nothing in my post is new. It’s all out there, on the Internet. Available for the past 4 years. I put it together as the lamestream media SHOULD HAVE DONE, but didn’t. For whatever reason.

      • “Adopted foundling” you got that right! Me thinks so too.

        • Yes Alf, everything you mentioned is across the hall over and over…4 years of the connections cannot begin to fit on this post as Miri said, but that Lulu (Luo) connection ? Well, you can just GUESS ? Cherries, jeans, paint, pennies and pain etc….cheers Alf…just have a beer, and listen to the Beegees…We can just pretend it is still St Patty’s day. That high rise in Hawaii is fit for a Queen, or Princess. It has a great view of golfers too. From Iolani to Al a wai, as well as the Hilton and Diamond Head. Come on over Alfy. This is not the place here.

    When I heard about the passport breech that was the first timeloud, clanging alarms went off for me. I KNEW something nefarious had occurred. I had no clue at the time, JUST how nefarious it was,


    Greetings All,
    Sorry I can’t do justice to this article, but I found it an interesting read. Feel free to move it to the trash heap, or somewhere out of the way.

    Recall when we were going through all of the names in the 1991 Harvard Law Review? I came upon native Hawaiian Chris Bartolomucci and links to his involvement in Hawaiian independence .

    Funny, but I was over at CitizenWells and A Crazy Old Coot made a comment that sent me searching again. I came across this article.
    David Keanu Sai v. Hillary Clinton, et al.

    The gentleman in the law suit is claiming that since the Queen of Hawaii gave up the throne in protest and the US initially agreed to govern with Hawaiian law, that Hawaii is truly not a US state, but rather still a sovereign Kingdom. Thus, Obama is not a Natural Born Citizen.
    According to the Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act, foreign States can’t be sued for punitive damages, but can be sued for injunctive relief. As for President Obama, Nixon v. Fitzgerald would give immunity to the President from lawsuits, but President Obama can’t claim to be a bona fide President since the U.S. Constitution requires the President to be a natural born citizen. Since President Obama was born in the Hawaiian Kingdom, and not born in the United States, he is a President de facto (in fact). Nixon v. Fitzgerald only applies to Presidents de jure (by law). I am not claiming Barack Obama is not a U.S. citizen, because he is by his mother (jus sanguinis). He is, however, not a natural born citizen (jus soli), which is a constitutional requirement to be President. During occupations of a country, international law prevents individuals from acquiring the citizenship of the occupied country through birth on the soil (jus soli) and can only acquire citizenship from their parents (jus sanguinis).
    Dr. Sai’s complaint alleges Clinton, Gates, and Willard with violating the Lili`uokalani assignment, the 1907 Hague Convention, IV, the 1949 Geneva Convention, IV, and for allowing the State of Hawai`i to have maliciously indicted, prosecuted and convicted Dr. Sai of a manufactured felony count of attempted theft of real property on March 7, 2000 for adhering to Hawaiian Kingdom laws, which by definition constitutes a “war crime” under Title 18 U.S.C. §2441(c)(1). The complaint seeks a permanent injunction, including punitive damages, disgorgement and restitution, to prevent and remedy any violations of the Lili`uokalani assignment and the international laws of occupation.

    I hope the links on this come through.

  10. Sorry, Links didn’t make it. This is the main link I wanted to include.
    1893 Lili`uokalani Assignment for U.S. President to administer Hawaiian
    Kingdom law.

  11. I’ve updated the post at the end by adding links to stories about the other information that might be cauterized. Sorry that I can’t find again the article I once read where a school librarian was quoted as saying that all the copies of the 1960 yearbook were swiped from the library. She attributed it, apparently, to fans of Obama; but I suspect another reason. Nobody has ever publicized the yearbook except SAD’s supposed BFF Susan Blake. And she only flipped through it on video. I don’t know that anyone has independently shown that SAD was in that yearbook or that she was in the yearbooks for all the years she supposedly attended Mercer Island HS. Her date of birth does NOT correspond with the year they say she graduated.

  12. Wow, a Lame Cherry article that doesn’t need to be studied, interpreted, dissected,diced, sliced and thrown on the wall to see what sticks:

    ~ snip

    No one has bothered to ask what price America has paid for Obama being British and illegal, in order to keep Vladamir Putin and Russia quiet?

    This blog has catalogued the price exclusively and repeats it here in expansion:

    1. Obama turned over the entire eastern bloc to Putin.

    2. Obama allowed the annexation of Ukraine.

    3. Obama has thwarted all reigning in of Iran as Putin protects the Persians.

    4. Obama shut down any FBI inquiry into the Russian mass murder of the entire Polish Government.

    5. Obama signed into law the absolute disarmament of these United States in the nuclear theater.

    No one has yet asked the questions in linking the rumors of Obama having “studied” in Russia for a year. This blog in inquiring of the university there, was not replied to. But the question is, “Did in 2005, Vladamir Putin, know to detain Obama as “British”, because Obama had records like in America, of being a student of foreign birth and was using a foreign aid package to gain financial assistance?”

    ~~ but, oh,great expert, “nobody” is such a rash term. We have been on this quite a long time. We’ve spent years sifting pepper to find that piece of poop. and, yes, we even know that during the Icelandic volcano spewing ash across Europe, barky lied about attending a non-existent school soccer game whilst keeping the press awaiting. He snuck out of the White House the weekend of Polish assassinations (he couldn’t attend the funeral due to “weather”… and coincidentally, the Kenyan Embassy is enroute to the bogus schoolyard where his daughter was playing the phantom game.

    WE KNOW. and the proof is that he needs “a little space” when he is no longer tethered to the American Electorate.

    WE KNOW. he even bragged to the Russian students that he met his wife in class during his follow up Apology Tour. (and we remember him leaving Downing St. alone and shaken on the last leg of his Worldwide American Presidential Tour)

    WE KNOW. and they know we know.

      • Avi lipkin again but here he’s more explicit , so is this what he telling Putin to wait for after the election for? This is so descriptive….and Turkey ,oh yeah. I had been watching a while back the relationship with Ibn in Turkey and Obama.

    • besides not being enigmatic, there’s some poor grammar in there. Don’t think LC wrote it himself.

      • Hayden, Cherry always writes like that. I have read every LC post for 4 years solid. It reads in the same exact style to me personally.

        • Because of the link to LC posted here, this is the first article I’ve read by him (I would’ve thought it was a “her” judging by the name and the pink background… little do I know. I’m from a different generation). Anyway, stuff like this so, so dispirits me. I feel like the PTB have all decided how it’s all going to go down and WTP are powerless. I hate feeling that way. As a matter of fact, I refuse to feel that way! We still have a country… our beloved USA. She’s made up of you and me… our children and grandchildren… and our belief in our Sovereign God, THE LORD JESUS, who promised neither to leave us or forsake us. Courage, people! Maybe I’m preaching to myself… who knows.

          • It is ok Sue. We all feel like that sometimes, but we get back up again and hope. Americans are a tough bunch. We did not get to be such a great place by being lazy or weak or by giving up so easy. Keep the faith. Believe in the basic good of the common man or woman, in all parts of the world. I always think of that. I have alot of faith in the human race (or most of it)

      • THe more LC writes the grammar gets poor, but one can still get the jest of the articles. I sort of like that it’s not perfect…..I bet LC is aware of it too.

        • I like it too Alf. I have this belief of who cares if the typing is not perfect. The info is the real important part, not the spelling. I do agree. Educated people are not always so smart. I will stand with the every day people every time. There is no substitute for common sense, and no degree for it.
          You either have it, or you DON’T. There is no subsitute, it cannot be bought or learned in my opinion. I have met many highly educated people in my life that think they are so sharp, but are totally clueless.That inflated ego problem.

      • Since we do not know the sex for certain, maybe we should say “LC write it cherryself.” 🙂

    • I remember hearing a long time ago that Obama FIRST got a US passport when he became a senator. (Don’t know if that’s US senator or state of IL senator.) I have LOOKED and LOOKED for the source of that allegation, and never found it. But that doesn’t mean that it’s NOT true.

      If true, it would support the probability that all his previous travels were on a British, Kenyan, or Indonesian passport (or maybe some other country. We simply don’t know where he’s from.)

      Since many travels took place when he was an adult, traveling on a foreign passport would be an “affirmative action” that would disqualify him from eligibility for the presidency. And so, when DID he become a US citizen?

      If he really did get a US passport (which from the images we’ve seen seem to indicate that it’s a diplomatic passport) after adulthood, then what might have been in the passport files that the cauterizer eliminated?

      It’s frustrating to not have the answers to whether or not the original documents EXIST somewhere; whether they checked the current database records against backups of the files, to see if anything was added, changed, or deleted; and whether or not they KNOW WHAT was “CAUTERIZED.”

      If all that existed in the database from 1978 until 1994 were database records that were transcriptions of old documents, then the documents have to be examined to match against what is NOW in the database records. If there was no logging of the ACTIVITY, then they don’t know what data elements were changed.

      And if, for example, there was a record for a naturalization or an oath of allegiance or a name change or an adoption or derivative citizenship or a consular declaration of “native” citizenship, we don’t know if any or all of those records were simply DELETED, leaving no trace that they ever existed.

      We don’t know WHEN exactly the cauterization took place. Say that Brennan’s one identified employee was the cauterizer. He began working back at the Dept. of State in 2004. Right as Barry was being touted for the wonderful speech he made at the Dem convention and right when they were thinking of drafting him to run for POTUS.

      Yontz looked at the files from 2005 through March 2008. Cauterization could have taken place in 2005 or 2008, IF he was the cauterizer. Others looked at the files before 2007. Any of these people or none of them could have been the cauterizer. We don’t know if all the perps were identified to the media.

      Since we do know that when Barry was a senator, news stories identified him as KENYAN BORN, then it’s safe to say that once they began to consider running him for POTUS, they needed to cauterize all that, too. They knew early on. They got a jump start on the cauterization, is my bet. It may be that the snooping came to light in 2008, but the actual cauterization took place long before he was on anyone’s radar. Surely his people knew of the potential, with 20,000+ having access to those files, that once he became well known to the public, many would be tempted to start vetting him.

  13. some mighty powerful stuff. 🙂

  14. Superb compilation. Well done.

    Something to add, however, is the revealing and often overlooked research done by blogger ‘My Very Own Point of View’ into the newspaper birth announcement microfiche; an investigation that involved trips to Hawaii and the Library of Congress.

    The published report is titled, “Extra, Extra, Announcing obama’s Birth,” and can be found here:

    • Welcome here Holly. You are right, that is a great blog. Full of really good information. I like the blog owners too.

    • TY, Holly. And welcome. We know ladysforest well and we’ve always publicized and applauded her work. But it’s good for anybody new to know of these important stories that supplement the point we’re trying to make, which basically is: He’s not what he pretends to be.

      I didn’t include the birth announcements in my list because these aren’t technically public documents; I was focused on how certain parts of our GOVERNMENT are illegally withholding public records FROM the public to deliberately hide the TRUTH about Obama.

      So far, NOBODY has seen a circa-1961 NEWSPAPER with those announcements in it. The microfilms that exist in libraries MAY BE tampered with. The newspapers themselves OUGHT TO HAVE actual copies of the papers in their archives. Newspapers and even some libraries save the actual newspapers, not only on microfilm, but in paper form.

      People save things like that, too, when their own children’s births are announced. Isn’t it odd that just as no hospital wants to “claim” him, nobody has come forward with a newspaper page with his birth announcement in it?

  15. Presser with Joe starting soon in Az. Lots of big players about. Many great dinner chats afterwards, and meeting of good friends and new friends. Those chats will be priceless and very interesting….networking with the best of the best in America. Cheers. Go Joe Go ! You have America behind you and beside you. Think PINK, and not Code Pink either.

    • There’s a new post about this topic. Published an hour ago. See the front page.

    • If anyone went to the presser and has any inside information, it would be nice to share it with our readers and commenters. On the Sheriff Arpaio thread, please.

  16. This is slightly O/T, but do you ever read a blog called They seem To have a lot of information and connect a lot of dots.

  17. Thanks to all who read and “liked” this post. Welcome to all our new readers.

    coffeeandsleeplessnights, I love your avatar. One of my favorite comics. I should use Guard Duck as my avatar. That’s how I feel sometimes. 🙂

    I’ve updated the post several times. Would welcome anybody’s take on the allegation that Stanley Armour Dunham had an FBI file that was destroyed. Is that how it looks to you?

  18. Excellent synopsis and historical perspective Miri. I am now getting a chance to catch up with my reading, and this review is definitely a keeper!

    We had no inkling of how far the Marxists were willing to go to cover for BHO at the time. It is only by looking backward at all of the deceitful things that were done do we know how well planned this coup was. If only we had known then all of the shenanigans that were going on and what they meant, and if only the dots were connected and the mainstream media investigated and reported as they should have done, our counry wouldn’t be facing the mess it is in now. A man with limited history, a falsified background, and radical associations has pulled off the biggest con in the world. The world was duped and continues to be led by a radical puppet.

    History will name those who were complicit in allowing this fraudulent man to run our country and try to destroy its basic tenants. BHO is a criminal pure and simple, and those that exalt him are anti-Americans. The destruction of the best country in the world was their goal, and those that remain silent with their information are traitors. Their day of reckoning will come, it is guaranteed. They can hide, but they will be eaten up inside. I hope we are alive to watch them suffer.

    • At this point, I would say that half the people (at least) in the USA were duped, but I’m not so sure about the world. I think the world is basically on his side if he pulls off what he wants to pull off. The world, in general, hates us and envies us. That’s why they are gung ho to see us brought down to their level and prevented from ever rising again. That’s one goal of the globalists. I hope that the country is waking up in time.

In addition, former U.S. Senator Paul Simon had agreed to endorse me before his untimely death.

      Leza –

  20. oh, and did we forget the Kennedys’ and Schwartzeneggers*’?

    o lookie. a kid is born in Boston. he shall be a senator from rhode Island, and/or she shall be a Governor from Maryland. cool. and my son by the maid in Cal-forn-ni-a is kinda like a natural born American citizen. he’s a Kennedy, sorta.

    i love irony*. Orwell would love the characters. whata shame about Caroline losing that NY Senate thingy back in Spring 2008. sheesh.


    Seems like an appropriate place for this story.

    “Fast-forward to four years later, and there is no new information. Why is this murder case not being pursued? Who at the State Department is covering up Obama’s passport breach? Lt. [sic] Harris told federal investigators before he was murdered that he received “passport information from a co-conspirator who works for the U.S. Department of State.” What became of the “co-conspirator”? Why wasn’t he/she brought to trial?”


    That story by Corsi at WND has a lot of details of Quarles Harris’s death.

  23. Jack Cashill:

    Brennan must answer for passport breach

    … President Barack Obama nominated John Brennan, his chief counterterrorism adviser, to head up the CIA. Brennan, 57, has served as assistant to the president for counterterrorism and homeland security since 2009.

    Before voting to confirm, Republicans in the Senate may want to question Brennan about the role he played in Obama’s 2008 campaign, specifically his potential involvement in the multiple breaches of the presidential candidates’ passport records in March of 2008. …

    To its credit, CNN Politics saw the real news angle in the passport scandal: “Chief of firm involved in breach is Obama adviser.” Having made this point, CNN and the rest of the media fell silent.

    After its initial article, the Post said not a single word about the incident or Brennan’s connection to it. The Post remained mute on the subject even in its 1,300-word front-page article of Jan. 9, 2009, “Obama Taps CIA Veteran As Adviser On Terror; Brennan Has Drawn Fire on Interrogations.”

    The fact that an employee of Obama’s new counterterrorism adviser had breached Obama’s passport files just months earlier held no interest for the Post or any other major media outlet of consequence.

    A curious reporter might also have asked how Obama got to Pakistan. In 1981, Pakistan was not an easy or likely destination for an American tourist.

    When the blogosphere raised these questions, FactCheck,org made the valid case that American citizens could travel to Pakistan in 1981 and thus dismissed the travel issue as “more ‘Birther’ nonsense.”

    The fact that Obama could have traveled to Pakistan on an American passport, however, does not mean that he did. Not surprisingly, FactCheck failed to mention the variable that prompted the controversy in the first place, namely Obama’s curious silence about the trip until April 2008.

    Nor, of course, did FactCheck mention the event that took place just weeks before Obama’s first mention of the Pakistan visit, namely the passport breach.

    The responsibility now falls on the U.S. Senate to raise the essential questions that the media have not raised and likely will not. Don’t hold your breath.”

  24. Perhaps if we all call/write Rand Paul… I can’t think of a single other Senator who would even consider such a thing, can you?


    IF ONLY. This story was from March 2019. Still waiting. Tick tock.
