Bin Laden is dead! What a wonderful sound after more than nine years of earnest effort to capture or dispatch him! Naturally, the other side isn’t happy, and that’s understandable, but bin Laden and the “rag headed, jihadist pigs” who follow(ed) him knew it was coming sooner or later. I wrote a number of times that in my opinion bin Laden was killed or died years ago. Now, that opinion has been rendered wrong; so be it, today bin Laden is dead! Patriotic Americans can take pride and solace in the fact that justice has been served.
If Americans could now get confirmation regarding Obama’s birth certificate both those things could be put to bed and America could move on to other issues. There is no more important issue than: that the political election process abide by the Constitution. Many in the media malign those who ask questions about Obama’s eligibility, and that maligning is all but incomprehensible given the repeated grilling to which those same so called “journalists” subjected President Bush.
Why does the media suddenly have no interest in asking hard questions? Why are they “factophobic”? What is difficult about “trust but verify”? And, why malign those who want truthful answers? Would it be that they are Democrat operatives cloaked as journalists; or proverbial wolves in sheep’s clothing? These and many other questions animate those who no longer trust the media and who seek answers to legitimate questions in their quest of the truth. Obama repeatedly promised “the most transparent administration in history,” his continuing resistance to American citizens who seek the facts about him is a non sequitur and establishes him as Deceiver-in-Chief.
Backhanded treatment by the White House and its lackeys in the media diminishes confidence in both, gives rise to and propagates conspiracy theories and when combined with fertilizer spread around abundantly by the Administration, promotes conspiracy growth. The best cure for distrust is to exercise promised transparency. Why is the establishment of authenticity of a piece of paper, or confirmation of Natural Born status important? It is important because confirmation of eligibility is fundamental to legitimate government. It is because truth-seekers have read the Constitution and are concerned about fraud in the offering; that an imposter may well have slicked his way into the highest political office in the land and is doing the nation what amounts to irreparable harm that he effectively promised. Plain enough?
What if it were suddenly revealed and confirmed that Obama is not eligible for the office of President because of unresolved citizenship issues? What would talking heads say then? Would they say, “It doesn’t matter, it’s too late, the election is over?” Would they say, “It’s too hard to do anything about it?” How about removal and jail? Do they believe that Americans can’t handle it? Get serious! Americans handled Bill Clinton, Nixon, Kennedys and other miscreants. Trust Americans, they can handle it.
So, now bin Laden is dead! What a marvelous job by SEALS and CIA operatives; and, may many other jihadist malefactors follow him to hell soon. The solution to the jihadist situation is contained in a vignette from the past. Rather than give bin Laden a “proper Muslim funeral” they should have wrapped him in a blanket soaked in pig’s blood before putting his body out for feral swine to eat. In the alternative they could have cut his head off, put that on a stake on the Washington Mall to dry, then they could have hung his decapitated body soaked in kerosene from the Verrazano Narrows Bridge and set it on fire? Thereafter ask which jihadist would like to go next! How many volunteers do liberals think there would be? PC enough?! I, for one, have had it with Obama kissing their behinds and this Muslim funeral thing is one more episode.
Finally, Americans can sleep well because their Armed Forces and CIA are on duty and awake! Well done! You make us proud and we are grateful.
