Bachmann and WorldNetDaily, Together at Last

My profile of WorldNetDaily made the case that the conservative Website, which opinion-makers brush off as a conspiracy hub, is actually incredibly influential on the right. Here’s some evidence for that argument.

For months — really since it was announced at the How to Take Back America Conference — WND has backed a campaign to send “pink slips” to members of Congress. Upon the sending of the five millionth pink slip, WND held a press conference yesterday on Capitol Hill, drawing actual GOP members of Congress, including Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.), Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas), Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) and Rep. Trent Franks (R-Ariz.). After the jump, pictures of Bachmann and Gohmert with WND Editor Joseph Farah, one of the driving forces of the “birther” movement.

Meanwhile, Farah is still offering $10,000 for proof of President Obama’s citizenship.

Oh, Please, please, please, let Michelle go birther!

Better yet, let Michelle start hanging with Orly Taitz.

Barack Hussein Obama hasn't proven he is a natural born citizen. He shouldn't get a pink slip, he should get a military escort to a brig where he would be tried for his treasonous and traitorous actions against the Constitution.

I will stand with and honor any patriots who undertake this. The country I fought fo in Vietnam is lost if we don't.

Barack Hussein Obama II was born in the State of Hawaii on August 4, 1961 according to a Certificate of Live Birth issued by the State of Hawaii and two contemporary newspaper accounts. His parents were not in Hawaii at the time as diplomats of a foreign nation, nor were they nationals of a foreign power occupying Hawaii at the time. Therefore, President Obama was a citizen by birth according to the Fourteenth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, and a natural born citizen under the jus soli principles we inherited from Great Britain through their concept of “natural born subject.” See United States v. Wong Kim Ark, 169 U.S. 649 (1898).

Folks, that's all you need to know. 'Nuff said. Next…

If you're such a patriotic American, why are you using a handle using a title of nobility?

Wow, your lordship. It looks like you're pretty mad about having a, uh, nonmember of the nobility as president. Well this is America my lord, and we don't truckle to the idea of inherited dignity. In this country we earn it, and our president has done so.

The program is to advise members of the U.S. House and Senate that they could be facing a “pink slip” as early as 2010 if they vote for more spending, socialized medicine, cap-and-trade legislation and a hate-crimes measure.
