WorldNetDaily raises over $75,000 to ask …

On May 19, Joseph Farah, founder of WorldNetDaily (wnd.com), launched a billboard campaign to bring the question of Obama’s constitutional eligibility to the forefront.
The billboard campaign, to pose a simple question, “Where’s the birth certificate?” raised $10,000 overnight and has since topped $75,000.
According to the company’s mission statement, WND “is an independent news company dedicated to uncompromising journalism, seeking truth and justice and revitalizing the role of the free press as a guardian of liberty. We remain faithful to the traditional and central role of a free press in a free society – as a light exposing wrongdoing, corruption and abuse of power.”
When Farah came up with the billboard idea, he said it was an effort to seek “truth and transparency” regarding Obama’s constitutional eligibility as a “natural born citizen” and “because the world has a right to know.”
Since launching the campaign, CBS Outdoor, Lamar and now Clear Channel Outdoor, which touts itself as being the world’s largest outdoor advertising company, have all rejected the ads.
Undaunted, Farah, continues to raise money to raise awareness of Obama’s questionable eligibility status through this billboard campaign with new billboards going up across the country every day.
According to Farah, they’ve not put a dent in the available billboards across the country that will run the campaign. He said the number erected will be limited only by the amount of money donated to the campaign.
Even if Obama was born in Hawaii and his parents are indeed who he claims they are, which no one knows without seeing a copy of his original long form birth certificate, he would still not be a “natural born” citizen or constitutionally qualified to be president of the United States. Because his father was a foreign national that would have made Obama a dual citizen at birth, which he himself admits.
When the “natural born” citizen clause was added to the constitution, it was to prevent anyone with split loyalties from becoming president.
