Corsi’s New Book: Much Ado About Nothing

As a proud, practicing truther,[1] I made a point of never criticizing the so-called birthers because I saw them as a subset of the truther movement.

The fact that I never criticized them, however, does not mean that I shared their passion for seeing Obama’s birth certificate — which I feared was an exercise in frustration.

Jerome Corsi’s new book Where’s the Birth Certificate: The Case That Barack Obama is Not Eligible to be President[2] has confirmed my fears.

Let me first make clear that I am convinced that most of the information provided by Corsi about Obama’s strange life and career is factually true. Undoubtedly, Corsi did an excellent job in searching for the elusive facts hiding behind an artificially created smoke screen.

Unfortunately, however, he fell short of his goal. Perhaps too short. – 10% Off(Ad)

Just reading the title of the book gave me the first hint that it was not on the right track. According to the title, Obama is not eligible to be president? So, how come he currently is in the White House? It doesn’t make any sense unless the title refers to his eligibility in a future election.

Actually, there is a whole section of the book mentioning efforts by several states to pass laws requiring candidates to prove their eligibility status in coming elections. Which is as good as locking the barn door after the horse has bolted.

Apparently, despite the critical political, economic and social situation this country is currently facing, Corsi proved incapable of thinking outside the box and his argument against Obama does not go beyond partisan politics.

It seems that, despite all the growing evidence that the two parties are a fiction — I call it the Repucratic party –, Corsi believes that just getting rid of Obama would change the current dismal state of affairs.

Seemingly, in Corsi’s best-case scenario, Obama is impeached and … what? Joe Biden becomes the 45th president of the United States. But, given the fact that Biden is an agent of the same people who put puppet Obama in the White House – as well as most American presidents since Woodrow Wilson –, this is such an irrelevant occurrence that it does not justify so much time an effort invested on reaching such a goal.

In my recent book Psychological Warfare and the New World Order: The Secret War Against the American People, I mention how

In the film Aliens, the humans under attack finally realize that taking out one by one the aliens infesting the base is an exercise in frustration, because they reproduce faster than they can zap them. Then, a member of the group realizes that in order to solve the problem they must take out the alien queen.

In the same fashion, getting rid of Obama will not solve the problem, because the alien queen is currently hatching dozens of eggs that will provide replacements to the current puppets with the new generations of Obamas, Kissingers, Brzezinskis, Carters, Clintons, Cheneys, Kerrys, Gores, McCains and Bushes.

And the alien queen’s nest is at the Harold Pratt House in Manhattan, headquarters of the Council on Foreign Relations.

Substituting the CFR puppets of the Repucratic faction party in power with CFR puppets from the other branch will not bring any change.

Consequently, if we want to win this decisive battle and eventually this war waged against us, we need to stop acting as usual and become radicals in the sense pointed out by Martí and Thoreau.

As Cuban patriot José Martí rightly pointed out, the word radical comes from the Latin word for “root.” Therefore, a radical is a person who tries to go to the root of the problem.

Unfortunately, as Henry David Thoreau observed, for every thousand hacking at the branches of evil there is just one striking at the root. The American Republic is in grave danger, and we are past the time for Band Aid Cures.[3] In order to produce major changes we need to find the true source of the problem and strike at it hard.

And this is precisely the main problem with Corsi’s book: it is not radical enough. It doesn’t hacks at the true source of the problem, which turns it into an exercise in frustration.

But this is not the book’s only problem.

When I ordered the book I expected to find answers to many unanswered questions about Obama. But I found out that the book is high on “whys,” but short on “becauses.” And it is short on “becauses” because Corsi apparently ignores one of the key concepts of intelligence and espionage; the distinction between information and intelligence.

According to the Joint Chiefs of Staff’s Dictionary of Military and Associated Terms, intelligence is the final product resulting from the collection, processing, integration, analysis, and interpretation of available information. (4) So, even though the term intelligence comprises something much more complex, we may safely accept the shorter definition that intelligence is just information after it has been properly evaluated.

Actually, most intelligence services agree that the most difficult aspect of the intelligence business is not the collection of raw data, but its interpretation and transformation into usable intelligence. And this is precisely what is missing in Corsi’s book: analysis. Consequently, what we get is a lot of information, but no intelligence at all. I’ll give you a notable example.

In Appendix A, “The Missing Obama Documents,” Corsi describes a long list of cases in which documents relating to Barack Obama’s past have been destroyed, missing, or frozen. Among the most notable mentioned in the book are:

The Hawaiian Department of Health has never affirmed that long-form, hospital generated birth certificate for BO ever existed.

The Noelani Elementary School, where BO allegedly attended Kindergarten, has refused to release its records.

The Punahou School in Honolulu, one of Hawaii’s most expensive private schools where BO attended as a sixth grader until he finished high school. Tuition was close to $2,000 dollar a year. A considerable amount of money at the time, and Obama’s parents seemingly lacked the means to pay for it. But the school has refused to release BO’s financial records.

In the fall of 1979 BO attended the Occidental College in Los Angeles. But the college has refused to release any information about BO’s application, his grades or financial records of the two years he was enrolled at the college.

BO has refused to release his U.S. his passport and travel records. Moreover, the State Department reported that Obama’s mother’s application for a passport – which included his son – was destroyed in a purge of passport records during the 1980s. This eliminates the possibility of using the information to establish her son’s U.S. citizenship.

In 1981, 20-year old BO transferred from Occidental College to Columbia University. But Columbia University has refused to release any records regarding Obama’s attendance, grades, financial aid records, his application, or even identify any single fellow student, co-worker, roommate or friend from those years. According to BO own words, “For about the two years there. I was just painfully alone.”

According to some sources, during his years at Columbia, BO majored in political science and international relations and wrote his dissertation on Soviet nuclear disarmament. However, Columbia University officials said that they don’t have a copy of his thesis and nobody seems to have ever seen it. The only exception is one of BO’s professors who claimed that he kept a copy, but he now says that it disappeared – he thinks he threw it out in 2000 during a move.

Harvard Law School has refused to release BO’s application, his grades, and any information about financial assistance.

Despite claims that in 1990 he became president of the Harvard Law Review, where he spent no less that 50 hours a week editing submissions. Moreover, despite of unsubstantiated claims that he authored and article, there is no record of his work, much less that he wrote any article for the publication.

From 1992 to 2004 BO lectured at the University of Chicago Law School. Eventually, despite of the fact that he never wrote any peer reviewed paper, gave a talk or made any scholarly comment, he was offered a full-time tenure-track position. Actually, his alleged eleven-year teaching career in constitutional law left no traces. Even more intriguing, he declined the tenure offer.

There are strong indications that his alleged autobiography, Dreams From My Father, is the work of a ghostwriter and there is not much truth on it about BO’s personal life.

During his presidential campaign in 2008, BO refused to release his medical records, as is customary in these cases. Instead, he provided a six-paragraph note from his physician with a brief summary of twenty-one years of health information.

From 1993 to 2002, BO worked at the Chicago law firm of Davis, Miner, Barnhill and Galland. He has never released his billing or client records for this time.

BO was elected to the Illinois Senate in 1996, where he served until 2004. The Illinois State Assembly claims that it does not keep BO personal records on paper.

In 2004, BO was elected to the U.S. Senate, as a direct consequence that his Republican opponent, Jack Ryan, withdrew due to a sex scandal.

Despite the fact that BO never lived in Connecticut, his SSN was issued in that state.

These are not the only records about BO’s life conspicuously missing, lost or frozen. Among the most important are the wedding license issued to his father and mother, his baptism record, and his Selective Service number.

It is evident that somebody did an excellent job in hiding or falsifying Obama’s personal information, and the job began many years before he was tapped to become the American president.

If one discards a foreign intelligence service, the only organization in the United States that has the power, the capability and the know-how to do this type of job is the Central Intelligence Agency.

Actually, the connections between the CIA and Barack Hussein Obama are so evident that some authors already have explored them. Among the most serious ones are Webster Griffin Tarpley’s book, Obama: The Postmodern Coup: Making of a Manchurian Candidate,[5] as well as Wayne Madsen’s report in 5 parts, “The Story of Obama: All in the Company.”[6]

Other articles on the subject are Deana Spingola’s “Barack Obama, Former CIA Agent,” [7] and my own “Obama: The Man Who Never Was,”[8] as well as a video in which James David Manning affirms that Obama was recruited by the CIA when he was a student at Occidental College.[9] Despite strong criticisms to his allegations, what Manning says makes a lot of sense.

Nevertheless, despite the fact that the CIA is incidentally mentioned on page XIII, it does not even appear in the Index. Apparently Corsi failed to see what was begging to be seen from his own text, or was too cautious to mention it — the conspiracy theorist label is very destructive.

Still, this is not the first time Corsi carefully avoids hacking at the root of evil by staying within the comfort zone.

In his book , The Late Great USA: NAFTA, the North American Union, and the Threat of a Coming Merger with Mexico and Canada,[10] he managed to avoid mentioning the Bilderberg Group, barely mentions the Trilateral Commission, and deals lightly with the Council on Foreign Relations — the very treasonous organizations that have been working hard in the shadows to bring about the North American Union.

Now, blaming Chomsky-style the CIA for having created a “legend”[11] for Barack Hussein Obama would tell us nothing unless we take a closer look at the usual scapegoat: the Central Intelligence Agency itself.

The National Security Council and her illegitimate son, the CIA — as well as her predecessor, the Office of Strategic Services (OSS), are the result of a wet dream of a group of Wall Street bankers, oil magnates and CEOs of transnational corporations agglutinated in a treasonous organization called the Council on Foreign Relations.[12] These are the ones pushing harder to destroy America and implement the New World Order – an euphemism for the coming communo-fascist totalitarian society they envision.

Moreover, since the beginning of the past century the conspirators began penetrating and controlling the main organs of the mainstream press. It culminated in 1949 when the CIA began the ultra secret Operation Mockingbird. Its goal was to recruit, under the false flag of fighting communism, American media news organizations and journalists as agents to disseminate CFR-generated disinformation.

Some years later, the CIA admitted having recruited more than 400 influential journalists who have secretly carried out assignments, from intelligence gathering to serving as go-betweens, inside at least 25 organizations of the U.S. mainstream media.

Eventually, CIA assets in the American media included CBS, NBC, ABC, CNN, Time, Newsweek, U.S. News and World Report, Reader’s Digest, The Miami Herald, The Washington Post, The Los Angeles Times, The Wall Street Journal, the Hearst Newspapers, news agencies AP, UPI, Reuters, and more. Since then, the conspirators’ control over the U.S. mainstream media has increased.

Proof of it is that speaking at the Bilderberg meeting in Baden- Baden, Germany, June 5, 1991, CFR honcho David Rockefeller thanked the sycophantic press for doing a good job keeping the American people in the dark about the treasonous activities of the Wall Street bankers and other conspirators in the Council on Foreign relations.

So, if you believe Limbaugh, Hannity, Levin, Beck and other professional disinformers when they parrot that the mainstream press blindly supports Obama because they are a bunch of leftists, you have been lied to.

They back Obama not because they like him, but because they are following their masters’ orders. If tomorrow they get a counter order, they will immediately show their immense hatred for a man they profoundly despise, not because the content of his character or becasue he defeated their beloved Hillary, but because the color of his skin — yes, they are racists.

They are the same ones who profoundly hated Cuban president-dictator Batista, a self-made mulatto of humble origins, and happily followed CFR orders to support the white, rich totalitarian-minded tyrant who was going to substitute him: Fidel Castro.

Their support has continued unaltered to this day, despite the fact that slave master Castro has turned Cuba into a huge plantation where exploitation of Cuban workers — particularly blacks — is even worse than in Chinese sweat shops or Mexican maquiladoras.

Finally, I would like to make clear that, despite my criticism of his book, I still have much intellectual respect for Mr. Corsi. His book exposing John Kerry’s lies, and particularly the one in which he introduced the theory of abiotic oil, are good examples of his intellectual capacity, sagacity and honesty.

Moreover, it has never crossed my mind that Corsi might be an agent of disinformation like many well-known pseudo-conservatives and pseudo-liberals. On the contrary, I think that he deeply cares for this country and his intentions have been the purest.

The main fault of Where’s the Birth Certificate: The Case That Barack Obama is Not Eligible to be President, arises from a wrong methodological approach: as one should not use a carpenter’s tools to do a plumbing job, one should not use a journalist’s (or a historian’s, for that matter) research and analysis tools to study cases where intelligence organizations have played a key role, and there is no doubt that this is the case with Mr. Obama.

As I mentioned at the beginning of this article, Obama will never be impeached, much less criminally prosecuted, because the CFR conspirators who put him in power have effectively infiltrated and control not only the mainstream press, but also the Congress and the courts.

Does this mean that we the people are totally powerless? Not at all. We can get rid of all of them or, at least put some sand in their machine to the point that it will become inoperable.

However, in order to begin the process of restoring order to this madhouse, we must begin by cleaning the Augean Congress stables and get rid of just 535 corrupt politicians who don’t deserve our respect, much less our vote. And it is not complicated at all. The rules of thumb are relatively simple:

In the first place, don’t give your vote to any candidate who is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations or the Trilateral Commission, or has attended the secret meetings of the Skull & Bones society, the Bohemian Grove, the World Economic Forum, the Bilderberg Group or any other organization of the many secretly working to destroy the U.S. sovereignty and implement a global government. Moreover, don’t give your vote to any candidate running for the Republican of Democratic parties.

With very few exceptions, all of them have become corrupt and currently are obedient puppets of the CFR conspirators. Actually, don’t give your vote to any candidate just because he is running for a particular party, but because of his/her personal qualities — the main one would be a commitment to follow, respect and protect the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic.

Secondly, don’t give your vote to any incumbent. The patriots who created this country fought against a hereditary monarchy. We don’t need career politicians for life, who see their positions as personal entitlements they can pass over to their children and don’t feel the need to protect the interests of the American people but of the corporations and other special interest groups that contribute to their campaigns.

Thirdly, if you don’t find any suitable candidate for a particular position, run for office yourself. Particularly run for key positions where we need true American patriots, such as sheriffs and judges. If you don’t have any political experience, that’s an asset, not a liability.

For their own benefit, don’t vote to reelect any politicians, even if they have done the best job one can conceive. Once they do their job for a maximum of four years, they should go back to be simple citizens — exactly as they were before being elected. Doing otherwise we run the risk that, sooner or later, they will become corrupt and will be bought by the CFR conspirators.

Common wisdom tells that, ultimately, peoples have the governments they deserve. If America disappears as a sovereign country, we are the only ones to blame. The ball is now in our court. Either we hit it back and refuse to become the conspirators’ serfs in their communo-fascist New World Order, or lower our heads and accept the yoke.

The author of the article reminds the reader that intelligence is an elusive concept, and there are many different definitions of the term. In the same fashion, the concept of information, the raw material out of which intelligence is produced, is even more elusive, to the point that there is no agreement among scientists about its true nature. The fact explains why Claude Shannon, the creator information theory, decided to call it “communication theory” instead.
