“We dance around in a ring and suppose while the secret sits in the middle and knows.” (Robert Frost)
President Obama is the secret. Can we realistically hope that the circle of dancers has begun to shrink as increasing numbers of previously blindfolded dancers regain their sight? Maybe not, but it’s a pleasant thought.

Articles: Why Kenyan Birth Claim Was No ‘Fact Checking Error’.

By Jack Cashill

No sooner did the literary agency brochure in which Barack Obama was said to be Kenyan-born surface than the media went to work to deep-six it.

“This was nothing more than a fact checking error by me – an agency assistant at the time,” Miriam Goderich, now a named partner in the literary agency, Dystel & Goderich, wrote in an emailed statement to Yahoo News, which was then picked up ABC News.  “There was never any information given to us by Obama in any of his correspondence or other communications suggesting in any way that he was born in Kenya and not Hawaii. I hope you can communicate to your readers that this was a simple mistake and nothing more.” 

This confession rings false to the point of preposterous for any number of reasons. …

  1. Thanks for the comment, Joe.

    No, I don’t “believe in” the various conspiracy theories; I would rather have factual evidence. As to President Obama’s constitutional qualifications for the presidency, very little capable of proper analysis has become available. You might find this post that just went up on my blog interesting in that connection. The focus has been and continues to be too much on refreshing showers of warm fluff mixed with unreality and too little on substance.

    Who is President Obama?

    Hey Dan,

    I love this stuff. Do you think that Obama’s birth certificate is fake? What do you think about the 9/11 conspiracy theories?

    Conspiracy theories are fascinating. They say so much about human nature. They all have the same characteristics in common.

    I used to believe the JFK theories. The left-wing radio station I used to listen to was really into promoting that one. They were very convincing. But then a guy named Posner came out with a book titled “Case Closed” and that convinced me that the theories were all bullshit. Then I started to notice that all conspiracy theories had the same characteristics and I became sceptical of them.

    Another one I used to believe in: These two guys, God and Satan, were locked in a battle to see who could torment us humans the most.

    But now I think that one’s bullshit too.
