|Update: Open Letter to Mr. Obama|
On Friday evening, October 31, 2008, under the heading, "WTP USA TODAY AD ON TAP," WTP announced our intention to publish an open letter to Barack Obama asking him to provide certain documents to prove he was a natural born citizen of the United States who had not relinquished his American citizenship. We provided a draft of the letter and requested donations to cover the cost - approximately $90.000.
For the next three days, leading up to Election Day, we heard from people supportive of the idea, some of whom contributed more than $5,000 for the project, believing as we did, that Mr. Obama would win the popular vote.
During those three days leading up to Election Day we also heard from people who were not supportive of the idea, some of whom sent us information that they said proved Mr. Obama was a natural born citizen of the United States.
We did not hear from anyone representing Mr. Obama offering, say, to provide the requested information.
As expected, Mr. Obama won the popular vote on Election Day, Tuesday, November 4th.
Following Mr. Obama's election many people have emailed WTP to inquire about the status of the publication of the open letter in USA TODAY.
Unfortunately, we were not able to provide any updates during the week due to the unscheduled unavailability of our IT contractor.
Not wanting to publish the open letter if, in fact, the public record contained proof of Mr. Obama's eligibility, we decided to take a close look at what had been sent to us last week by those opposed to the publication of the open letter and what others have been reporting since Mr. Berg filed his lawsuit on August 21, 2008.
We have come to the conclusion that the facts presented by Mr. Berg in Berg v. Obama, that are material to the case ARE NOT IN GENUINE DISPUTE and that at his peril, Mr. Obama has a duty to refute them. As a United States Court of Appeals has held, "Silence can only be equated with fraud where there is a legal or moral duty to speak or where an inquiry left unanswered would be intentionally misleading." See United States v. Prudden, 424 F.2d 1021 (5th Cir. 1970), cert. denied, 400 U.S. 831(1970).
The COLB posted on his website in 2007, and now Mr. Obama's silent misrepresentation are both intentionally misleading and material.
As of today, $6801.26 has been contributed toward the cost of publishing the open letter in USA TODAY.
SCHEDULE: ELECTORAL COLLEGE, ETC.
If we raise enough money this week, we will publish the open letter during the week of November 17, 2008, asking Mr. Obama to respond on November 24, 2008. This leaves sufficient time for an evaluation of Mr. Obama's documentation, if any, before his representatives to the Electoral College are certified by their respective state Governors on December 1, 2008, before those representatives to the Electoral College cast their votes for Mr. Obama on December 15, 2008, and before the joint session of the Congress counts the votes cast by the Electoral College on January 6, 2009.
