'Birth certificate' billboards on the Net

'Birth certificate' billboards on the Net
Ads reach targeted audience, extend campaign reaching millions a

WASHINGTON - How many people are reading those "Where's the
birth certificate?" billboards around the country every day?

Millions, according to auto traffic patterns and projections
provided by billboard companies.

But, now they are also reaching millions a day on the Internet.

WND launched an advertising campaign this week that has
mini-billboards appearing on websites like the Drudge Report.

"We've raised about a dozen billboards around the country,
raising lots of awareness about Barack Obama's continuing refusal
to come clean with the American people about his birth,"
explained Joseph Farah, editor and chief executive officer of WND
and the creator of the billboard campaign that has helped change
the political culture of the country with regard to the
eligibility question. "Now we're taking the billboard campaign to
the Internet - allowing many millions more to see what's
happening and giving them a chance to participate in the effort."

Have you contributed to the "Where's the birth certificate?"
billboard campaign yet? It takes at least $40,000 a month just to
sustain it. If you haven't contributed this month, please do so

Now when people contribute to the billboard campaign, some of
the money will be used to buy advertising like this on the
Internet, while the remainder will be allocated to purchase or
renew the traditional billboards.

"Remember," says Farah, "billboards need to be renewed every
month. That is a recurring expense that we are bearing. You don't
buy billboards, you lease them. The average cost of each of our
current dozen or so billboards is about $4,000 a month. We are
running a deficit right now because donations are down. We need
to raise about $40,000 a month just to sustain the current
billboards. And this is a campaign we plan to continue right up
through the 2012 presidential campaign if Obama does not release
his birth certificate by then."

The latest billboard to go up is one in San Antonio at
Interstate 10 and Highway 37 at the Pine Street exit.

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 $125,000 collected so far.

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
ever given.

A few days later, Lamar Advertising, another billboard industry
giant joined CBS.

President Obama reveal his long-form, hospital-generated birth

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
billboards themselves.

"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

WND previously launched a petition campaign that has collected
nearly half a million names demanding Obama's eligibility be
verified and demonstrated publicly. That campaign continues. That
list has been shared with members of the Electoral College and
the chief justice of the U.S. Supreme Court.
