Obama’s ineligibility: The American press has dishonored itself

We now have the media of an one-party state.

I was watching ABC’s George Stephanopoulos interviewing Donald Trump about the birth certificate issue.

It struck me how much more Stephanopoulos sounded like an Obama staff member than an independent and objective journalist.

Continuing his crusade to save Obama from the dustbin of history, Stephanopoulos, on Good Morning America, waved a copy of Obama’s alleged Certification of Live Birth at Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN).

He demanded that she renounce her recent heresy of questioning Obama’s eligibility to be President by swearing an oath to the purity of her thoughts in order for her to be considered an acceptable contender for the Republican presidential nomination.

Stephanopoulos is the caricature of a main stream media news anchor

Stephanopoulos is the caricature of a main stream media (MSM) news anchor, who moved seamlessly from being press secretary for the Clinton administration to being the spokesman for left-wing Democrats at ABC news.

Of course, the MSM long ago discarded any pretense of independence and objectivity. They have completely bought into the Obama agenda and they want to protect their investment.

The MSM are now enthusiastically shielding Obama from doubts about his eligibility by making the “birther question” a litmus test for potential Republican candidates.

There may be no length that the MSM will not go to protect Obama and left wing Democrats. They appear willing to defend them against any accusations of atrocious crime or dangerous policy and any displays of ignorance or arrogance.

Recently, CBS news captured Obama making potentially offensive comments to a group of big money donors.

Apparently, CBS only released snippets of his remarks, purportedly leaving out the part where Obama called ordinary Americans “slugs”.

On another subject, I have often wondered why, with so many qualified African-American spokespersons, the MSM promotes outwardly controversial and divisive figures like Al “racism is my business case” Sharpton. He is a man ostensibly dedicated to rooting out either real or imagined racism, mostly, it seems, the latter.

The MSM recruits such commentators because divisive policies are also part of the business case for left-wing Democrats, who would become extinct under E Pluribus Unum.

MSM continue to wrap themselves in a cloak of noble intentions and enlightened opinions

Nevertheless, the MSM continue to wrap themselves in a cloak of noble intentions and enlightened opinions as they eagerly censor the news, presumably to protect us rustics and rabble from our coarser instincts like requesting the truth and protecting the Constitution.

In the end, however, it will not be the MSM who will pay the penalty for participating in this scam, because they can walk away from their mistakes and update their web pages.

Those potentially liable are Obama and the Congress.

According to the 20th Amendment, Section 3, it is not the responsibility of the American people to prove that he is not eligible, but for Obama to prove that he is. In addition, the Congress is required to validate Obama’s eligibility.

When the truth is finally known and history is eventually written regarding Obama’s actions and the acquiescence by members of Congress, the words of Thomas Paine might come to mind:

“the world will be puzzled to decide whether you are an apostate or an impostor; whether you have abandoned good principles, or whether you ever had any.”
