Editor’s note: Since publication of this story, the auction item has been removed for the third time. None of the item identification numbers in this article remain valid.
An eBay seller who previously promised to deliver a certified copy of President Obama’s actual birth certificate – from a hospital in Mombasa, Kenya – has twice had his listing removed from the popular auction website.
In a third listing, however, the seller calling himself “colmado_naranja” has explained why the birth certificate was twice yanked by eBay administration.
“The first cancellation was done in what eBay describes as being in the interests of keeping my account safe,” the newest listing claims, referring to the now scrubbed item # 160344374585. “eBay was under the impression that a third party had accessed and compromised my account, that this third party put up the Barack Obama African birth certificate auction and that I had no knowledge of the said listing.” …Continue Reading
Foreign Policy Issue:
If Ahmadinejad really wants to mess with Obama, all he has to do is ask a couple of short questions before the U. N. Where’s the Birth Certificate? What are all these rumors we hear about you be on the down-low?
In the days after Iran’s now infamous election, President Obama’s political opponents railed against the Commander in Chief for not taking a stronger stance in the hotly contested results. But now that Obama has spoken and condemned Iranian state actions, Iran’s leaders are predictably lashing out at the American president, calling his statements “interference” by the United States….Continue Reading

Syrian officials threatened on Saturday to take back the Golan Heights by force if a peace agreement involving the return of the strategic plateau is not reached with Israel, Army Radio reported.
A group calling itself the Syrian Committee for the Freedom of the Golan said it would take steps to regain control of the territory, adding that Israel has not shown willingness to achieve peace or to return what they called “Syrian land.”
The comments were made at the inauguration ceremony, attended by Syrian President Bashar Assad, for a new communications center in Quneitra. …Continue Reading
Atlas Shrugs gives a heads-up to an excellent article by John Bolton
John Bolton in the UK magazine, Standpoint (UK) ((July – August 2009)
“The euphoria is over. It is time for a serious critique of Barack Obama’s foreign policy”
John Bolton: The Post-American Presidency Standpoint (UK) (6-25-09)
Judging a new American President’s national security policies after six months in office is a perilous enterprise, especially in the case of Barack Obama, where constant incantations of “change” and serial criticisms of his predecessor are the order of the day.
Nonetheless, during the 2008 primaries, Democratic candidates fiercely debated their respective abilities to handle the “3am call,” and Joe Biden later warned that the inexperienced Illinois Senator would be “tested” early in his tenure. Now there is a partial record, and, more importantly, a worldview on which we can grade Obama’s performance.
Obama is the first post-American President. Central to his worldview is rejecting American exceptionalism and the consequences that flow therefrom. Since an overwhelming majority of the world’s population would welcome the demise of American exceptionalism, they are delighted with Obama. …Continue Reading

It’s not just what’s in the bill. It’s the way they rammed it through the House.
Just like the porkulus: Under-handed, transparency-defying, and stuffed with earmark payoffs and bribes concocted in middle-of-the night, backroom deals.
Taxpayers are mad again. And they’re not going to sit still.
Impromptu flash protests are taking place today at state capitols and federal buildings across the country.
