What is interesting is the transformation of “reporting” instead of the investigative reporting of the Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein era the fundamental change we are witnessing in the media is a mindless regurgitation of narrative that may either be factual or Elizabeth Warren fiction.This post is about reason and sanity. I believe we lost both as a people in America. I intend to use the “Birther” pejorative to show how stupid some of us have become.
First as I previously posted I am a proud “Birther.”"Say It Loud, I'm a Birther and Proud!" In a world that doesn’t and refuses to judge any of the sexual declivities that were considered unthinkable and taboo a mere fifty years ago I will not accept judgment or derision of my stated political position.
I will begin by stating in journalism the basic concepts of reporting are the concepts of what, when, where, why and how. Objectivity is the overarching principle that belies every reporting of the facts. Without objectivity and facts what is left is only propaganda not news reporting. A reporter is always looking for the facts and is willing to investigate a story in order to ascertain the facts.
The establishment media spent the better part of the eight years of the Bush presidency attempting to undermine his administration and the remainder of the time openly campaigning against him supporting first Gore then Kerry. I don’t have to tell you that you saw that. Many of you were a part to that!
To say that the establishment media supported Barry Hussein campaign and is supporting his subsequent presidency goes without saying. It is just a fact that has been reaffirmed by many independent sources.
This could be no more apparent than when new media Breitbart news reported that the President had represented for nine years that he was born in Kenya Africa. Of course this was done on a Literary Bio in order to sell books yet it was the president who is the original source for the born in Kenya meme not Donald Trump. The president’s agents used the Kenya born narrative from 1991 to 2008 until it was inconvenient to use.
So it is disingenuous for the president or his acolytes to attempt to paint “birthers” as crazy when the born in Kenya, raised in Indonesia and Hawaii narrative started with the president in order to sell books never imagining that this would one day come back and bite him in his lying posterior.
Birthers are merely asking, as every American should, for clarification of the facts. If the president and his agents have made murky his past, then unseal all of his records so Americans won't remain ignorant about who is occupying the White house. This is a national issue and a major constitutional problem.
No man Black or White should expect to remain in the White house with a secret past that only he presumably his wife, the State of Hawaii, people who may be controlling him and a few dead relatives know what's real about him.
A president is a national shared public servant. The American people have rights to information about the president. Surely the American people are entitled to information that would be requested and required on an application for employment from their Executive employee. This is what birthers are asking for. That is not crazy.
Finally “Birthers” are the only sane people in this matter. Where the establishment media has forsook the fourth estate and become errand boys and secretarial transcribers for this the president of their making, Birthers are asking the investigative questions that the fourth estate is supposed to.
Establishment media is taking the president’s narrative as he dictates it to them and they are repeating that story to the public. That is not reporting.
And on the other hand, either is being a birther a pejorative. Birthers are asking the investigative questions. These are questions that the American media wouldn’t ask. And in order to save face the media must mock birthers because birthers are showing that the media isn’t doing it’s job.
I’ll tell you what insanity is. A man has attained to the office of President of the United States of America, yet sufficient evidence suggests that he may have reached the office while being ineligible to do so but instead of attempting to investigate this constitutional crisis the media instead attempts to completely shut down any discussion about the subject by labeling those who are asking questions, crazy. That is completely insane.
That is also why birthers are the only sane people in American politics.
