If a U.S. President can remain in the White House without credentials, illegal aliens can remain safe as the proverbial church living under the radar

The birth certificate games Barack Hussein Obama has long played on an unwitting American public may have taken their origin from ‘Hope & Change’ astroturf messaging.
Obama seems to get off on keeping his pedigree under lock and key. Obama ineligibility as an issue and the Hope & Change message coincide in real time.
While millions may have understood the intent of the 2008 Hope & Change slogan to mean hope and change for Americans in general, it could have been a thinly veiled call of hope to upwards of 20 million illegal aliens squatting on American soil.
Hope & Change had become a household word, preceding even Obama’s gussied-up presentation to a waiting world from the backdrop of styrofoam Greek columns at Denver’s Invesco Field, DNC convention back in August of 2008.
The Hope & Change styled stencil ‘portrait’ was arguably the most viewed poster of modern time. It was slapped on USA mail boxes and lampposts everywhere in the United States and versions of it found life in countries as far away as Kenya and China.
The Guardian’s Laura Barton proclaimed that the image “acquired the kind of instant recognition of Jim Fitzpatrick’s Che Guevara poster, and is surely set to grace T-shirts, coffee mugs and the walls of student bedrooms in the years to come.”
How convenient that the poster was the overnight success of an up to then little-known streetscape artist before it was astroturfed into immortality for mass public consumption.
Clever branding of a campaign slogan many believed encompassed America as a whole, with a deadly tailor-made message for the millions in the country without credentials like visas, green cards or passports required for legality.
Outrage to ACORN voter fraud dominated the 2008 election campaign. How many among the 69 million who cast their votes for Obama on November 4, 2008 got the tailor-made, astroturfed message?
Estimates on illegal immigration in the United States of America range from 7 to 20 million. But authorities can only count the illegal aliens they know are in the country.
Obama’s then-Chief Campaign Strategist David Axelrod has long been known for his political magic.
“Through his AKP&D Message & Media consultancy, the campaign veteran has advised a succession of Democratic candidates since 1985, and he’s now chief strategist for Senator Barack Obama’s bid for President. But on the down low, Axelrod moonlights in the private sector. (Bloomberg Businessweek, March 2008)
“From the same address in Chicago’s River North neighborhood, Axelrod operates a second business, ASK Public Strategies, that discreetly plots strategy and advertising campaigns for corporate clients to tilt public opinion their way. He and his partners consider virtually everything about ASK to be top secret, from its client roster and revenue to even the number of its employees. But customers and public records confirm that it has quarterbacked campaigns for the Chicago Children’s Museum, ComEd, Cablevision, and AT&T.
ASK’s predilection for operating in the shadows shows up in its work. On behalf of ComEd and Comcast, the firm helped set up front organizations that were listed as sponsors of public-issue ads. Industry insiders call such practices “Astroturfing,” a reference to manufacturing grassroots support. Alderman Brendan Reilly of the 42nd Ward, who has been battling the Children’s Museum’s relocation plans, describes ASK as “the gold standard in Astroturf organizing. This is an emerging industry, and ASK has made a name for itself in shaping public opinion and manufacturing public support.”
What if Hope & Change was a message primarily astroturfed to call illegal aliens to get out and vote Obama on Election Day?
Illegal aliens with no paper to prove their status would relate best to someone who got all the way to the White House without courtesy of credentials to prove who he really is. They would feel secure being governed by a president with no proven credentials.
Was Obama sending a subliminal message to millions of America’s illegal aliens with his Hope & Change slogan?
The message would have been loudly heard. If a U.S. President can remain in the White House without credentials, illegal aliens can remain safe as the proverbial church living under the radar.
