people who "certified" Barack Obama
Jess Henig and Joe Miller
|I was looking for a photo to add to the left column,
when I re-discovered these photos of the two people who "certified"
Obama's eligibility to serve as POTUS.
They are employees of
FactCheck.org, an organization that bills itself as "non-partisan," but
is part of the Annenberg network of liberal-left causes and
organizations -- just like Bill Ayers'
Annenberg Challenge -- Annenberg, and its causes, are way left of
As the world now knows, FactCheck.org
published a web page entitled, "Born in the U.S.A. -- The truth
about Obama's birth certificate." The entire webpage is
ONE BIG LIE!
The counterfeit document
FactCheck.org is proffering on this page, and refers to as a birth
certificate -- 31 times -- is not a birth certificate. It's not
even a document. At
least three qualified examiners have said it's bogus. But that didn't stop
FactCheck.org from employing Goebbel's "Big Lie" technique:
"If you tell a lie big enough and keep
repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can
be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people
from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the
lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use
all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal
enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest
enemy of the State."
And it worked!
This absurd webpage, and the bogus
document it contains, has been referenced by judges, members of Congress
and the ObamaMedia as prima facie evidence that Barack Obama is eligible
to serve as Commander in Chief, even though the Obama Campaign has
publicly admitted that Obama was -- "at birth" -- a citizen of Kenya, a
British subject and is a "native [born US] citizen" -- it's on
their website --
anchor babies are "native born citizens."
citizenship status is different than "natural born" citizenship. "Native
born" American citizens are simply not
eligible to serve as Commander in Chief.
identifies their anal-ists as Jess Henig and Joe Miller. OK, that's
fine, but who and what are Jess Henig and Joe Miller? Are they
qualified to perform an analysis of ANY document, or are they just a
couple of guys hanging around FactCheck.org's office, or are they
political operators? What are their bona fides? FactCheck.org doesn't
say. Wonder why?
you buy a used car from these two?
Well, I found out. The two FactCheck.org employees
who were granted access to Obama's bogus Certification of Live Birth
(COLB) are NOT document examiners or experts. They never even
checked ID's at a college bar.
Joe Miller earned his B.A.
in philosophy from Hampden-Sydney College, his M.A. in philosophy from
Virginia Tech and his Ph.D. in political philosophy from the University
of Virginia. He joined the Annenberg Public Policy Center in April
2007 after working as a writer with the
Mack/Crounse Group. Previously he was an assistant professor
of philosophy at the United States Military Academy and at the
University of North Carolina at Pembroke, and a visiting fellow at the
Callaghan Centre for Conflict Studies at the University of Wales at
Jessica Henig earned her B.A. in history of science from
Smith College and her M.A. in English from the University of Maryland.
While at Maryland, she taught digital literature and rhetorical writing.
Prior to joining the Annenberg Public Policy Center in May 2007, she
worked for the National Academies Press. She has also worked for
the National Institutes of Health and as a freelance researcher and
editor. She left FactCheck.org in January, 2011 to become a news
writer for Grist.org.
No forensic document examiner background
here, but it does look like she has some Photoshop skills.
They are a couple of partisan
hacks -- just what you'd expect -- Jess took the photos presented on
their webpage and did all of the writing, while Joe basically held the
COLB open for Jess to photograph -- suitable work for a Ph. D.
Those two are completely unqualified to perform any kind of forensic
examination of any document, and
FactCheck.org knows it -- and so do Henig and Miller. They are
definitely not qualified to "certify" Barack Obama as president.
FactCheck does say their, "representatives got a chance to spend some
time with the 'birth certificate,' and we can attest to the fact that it
is real and three-dimensional and resides at the Obama headquarters in
Chicago." In my mind, that clearly shows they were working with and for
the Obama Campaign and that Obama and his people are involved in this
Lie? Hell, this is a conspiracy, the greatest fraud in
American history and FactCheck.org boldly admits their part in it.
