'Where's the birth certificate?' campaign going strong
LAS VEGAS - They say, "What happens in Las Vegas stays in Las
Not this time.
Here's the picture to prove it:
The latest billboard in the "Where's the birth certificate?"
campaign is up for gawkers in the city of billboards - Las Vegas,
Right smack dab in front of the plush Mandalay Bay Hotel on
Mandalay Bay Drive tourists will be greeted with the most
vilified message in the White House and media today: "Where's the
And the national fund-raising campaign to erect many, many more
billboards around the country questioning Barack Obama's
constitutional eligibility for office is going strong - with a
total of $115,000 collected so far.
Have you contributed yet to the "birth certificate" billboard
campaign? It's not too late. In fact, Farah says the campaign is
just getting started and that he plans to continue through the
election of 2012 if necessary. If you agree the Constitution
means what it says and that it is the responsibility of all
Americans to enforce it, make your donation now.
The first such sign to be posted, a digital one, on Highway 165
in Ball, Louisiana. Join the effort.
Joseph Farah, editor and chief executive officer of WND, said
the campaign was born of frustration with timid elected officials
in Washington, corrupt judges around the country and a news media

Farah said the campaign was born of frustration with timid
elected officials in Washington, corrupt judges around the
country and a news media that show a stunning and disturbing lack
of curiosity about the most basic facts of Obama's background -
especially how it relates to constitutional eligibility for the
highest office in the land.
Not surprisingly, the campaign was quickly met with opposition.
Just two weeks after it was launched, CBS, one of the largest
media conglomerates and a leading provider of outdoor
advertising, officially banned its local salesmen from accepting
the "birth certificate" billboard leases from WND. No reason was
The next day, the national trade and political lobbying
association for the billboard industry issued a press release
defending CBS' action for refusing "misleading" advertising.
A few days later, Lamar Advertising, another billboard industry
giant joined CBS. And a few days after that, Clear Channel, a
media goliath owning 1,200 radio stations across America and
controlling tens of thousands of billboards, followed suit.
But the campaign had already made waves. Suddenly, there were
debates on Fox News over the issue of Obama's eligibility
mentioning the billboard campaign. MSNBC followed with reports -
albeit sneering ones. Rush Limbaugh talked about the birth
certificate issue all three hours in one of his daily shows - the
largest talk-radio program in the world.
Farah's phone has not stopped ringing since with media calls.
Even local TV news and local talk-radio programs got into the
act - sometimes together.
But the real fruit of the campaign, explains Farah, are the
"Seeing these billboards springing up around the country is
quite a phenomenon," he says. "It has been less than six weeks
since this idea was hatched and already the billboards are
becoming a familiar sight."
Farah also devised a way for everyone to get into the act - with
your own car or your own yard.
There are magnetized bumper stickers with the now-famous message
and design - "Where's the birth certificate?"
And there are yard and rally signs you can either take to your
next tea party or turn your own property into a mini-billboard
