WND editor pledges donation if Obama releases long-form document
WASHINGTON - In another bid to persuade Barack Obama to release
his long-form birth certificate publicly, WND Editor and Chief
Executive Officer Joseph Farah today said he would donate $10,000
to the birth hospital listed on the document.
Obama has resisted pleas from a growing chorus of Americans who
can't understand why he would spend more than $800,000 fighting
lawsuits calling for the release of the document rather than let
the American people see it.
"We've tried the stick," said Farah. "Today, as Barack Obama
celebrates what he claims to be his birthday, I want to try the
carrot approach. Obama has said he was born in Kapi'olani
Hospital in Honolulu. He participated in a fund-raiser for the
medical center in January. WND will send a check to whatever
birth hospital is listed on his long-form birth certificate. All
Obama has to do to see that donation made is to release it

Farah said this offer does not supplant or replace a previous
offer he put on the table to provide a minimum of $10,000 to
anyone providing proof he or she was present at Obama's birth.
Last week, Jason Hommel, an investment adviser, offered a
$100,000 reward to anyone who can prove Obama is a natural born
citizen and eligible to be president.

"I figured we couldn't entice Obama to prove his own eligibility
for money," said Farah. "But because we all know that Obama cares
so much about health care and charity, I figured we might
persuade him to end this national mystery with a significant cash
pledge to the hospital in which he entered the world. And what
better time to make the announcement than what he claims to be
The controversy over Obama's birthplace has lingered since last
year's presidential campaign, but has heated up in the last three
months since Farah began what he calls a "personal crusade" to
get to the truth. The last two weeks have witnessed a barrage of
coverage by the U.S. and international news media - mainly
ridiculing the notion that there is any legitimate controversy at
Nevertheless, recent polls show the issue resonating with the
American people, who are buying up bumper stickers, yard and
rally signs and donating to Farah's campaign to purchase
billboards around the country asking, "Where's the birth
In addition, more than 430,000 people have signed Farah's
petition calling on all controlling legal authorities to verify
Obama's constitutional eligibility.
"Barack Obama claims to have been born in Honolulu Aug. 4,
1961," explains Farah. "His entire constitutional claim to the
presidency rests on this premise. Yet, he refuses to release a
copy of his long-form birth certificate - the only document that
could possibly corroborate his claim. Instead, he has released to
select news organizations and posted on the Internet a document
that could never serve as proof he was born in the United States
- a so-called 'certification of live birth,' a digital document
that could, can and has been obtained by people who were actually
born outside the country. The American people can never be
certain their president is legitimate constitutionally without
To date, no hospital in Hawaii has come forward to claim this
No doctor or nurse has come forward to say they were present for
that historic birth.
No witness of any kind has come forward to say they have
first-hand knowledge or involvement in that historic birth - at
least in Hawaii.
Obama's paternal grandmother, Sarah Obama, did claim to have
been present for the birth. However, she lives in Kenya.

Farah produces 1st feature documentary on Obama mystery
WASHINGTON - WND Editor Joseph Farah has produced the first
major DVD documentary on the critical issues surrounding the
constitutional eligibility of Barack Obama to serve as president
- but it wasn't easy.
In fact, during the course of shooting and editing "A Case of
Eligibility," the award-winning filmmaking team, veterans of many
controversial movie projects, made the unusual request to keep
its identity secret for fear of retribution from the
"That's how hot this topic is," said Farah. "That's how hot this
The documentary was released on Aug. 4, the date Obama claims as
his 48th birthday.
"I guess you could say it's a special birthday surprise for
Obama," said Farah. "But, honestly, I don't think he'll like it.
In fact, I believe the facts revealed in this documentary keep
Obama awake at night. This eligibility issue is the only issue
that threatens not only the future of his presidency, but almost
everything he thinks he has already accomplished as president."
In "A Case of Eligibility," Farah chose four key presenters to
bring the issue home:
* WND senior staff writer Jerome Corsi, the No. 1 New York
Times bestselling author of "The Obama Nation";
* Orly Taitz, one of the most visible attorneys involved in
filing lawsuits challenging Obama to produce proof of his
qualifications for office;
* Alan Keyes, a participant in one of those lawsuits, a
presidential candidate himself, and the Republican candidate who
opposed Obama in his successful bid to become a U.S. senator, the
job that brought him to national attention;
* and Janet Porter, an activist and pundit who writes a weekly
column for WND
"What we have produced here is a compelling and shocking
documentary that will appeal both to those already steeped in the
details of the eligibility story and for those who need a video
introduction to the major issues," said Farah.

It's a fast-moving, original work shot entirely in Washington,
D.C., and based on the voluminous investigative work of the news
agency that has spent more time and money on the story than all
other news media combined - the WND news team, said Farah.
"I'm hoping people will purchase a copy for themselves and pass
it around to their friends - devotees of the issue and skeptics
alike," said Farah. "I'm hoping people will share it in their
living rooms, at tea party planning sessions and especially with
their members of Congress - so officials in Washington can see
first hand they've been sold a bill of goods about Obama's
Farah says sooner or later the truth will come out on Obama's
failure to prove his eligibility and maybe even his inability to
"Obama is choreographing a top-down revolution in America - one
it may take generations from which to extricate ourselves," says
Farah. "It will be a shame if we only learn he was ineligible to
serve in the office of president after he's gone. If we can force
the issue to be addressed while he is still in office, we have a
chance of turning back the clock on many of the destructive
actions he has taken already. If he's not able to prove his
constitutional qualifications, we might all be able to wake up
one day and think of the Obama administration as just a bad
