As planned, on Monday and Wednesday of this
week, WTP published the full-page
Open Letter to Mr. Obama in the
Chicago Tribune. The letter respectfully
requests that he direct the state of Hawaii to
provide access to his original 1961 (“vault”) birth
certificate, and that he arrange for delivery to the
National Press Club of certain other documents, all
for the purpose of providing evidence of his
The public response and attention by the
media, has been nothing short of astonishing.
Apparently, the publication of the Open
Letter and huge reaction it generated has largely
forced the media to finally acknowledge the
existence of the Obama citizenship controversy,
apparently abandoning the desires of their
collective management to smother the story.
Almost immediately after the paper hit the
streets of Chicago Monday morning, requests started
coming in for interviews from print, broadcast and
on-line news outlets, including several clear-
channel (reserved frequency, high-wattage AM) radio
stations from around the country. It’s been non-stop
all week. Here is a link to an
audio recording of a brief interview
with WGN, Chicago’s leading 50,000 watt,
clear-channel radio station.
On Tuesday, December 2, the Tribune’s local
competitor, the Chicago Sun-Times published a
column by Mary Mitchell about the
open letter. Granted, columnists do take liberties,
but her column was not only riddled with important
factual errors, it was largely “over-the-top” and
arguably inflammatory, referring to me indirectly as
one of the “skinheads from Tennessee who planned to
dress up in coattails and top-hats and go on a
racist killing spree before targeting Obama.” In
response, thousands of Chicagoans flooded the
Sun-Times with their comments, both pro and con.
I am preparing a rebuttal that will soon be sent to
the paper as a suggested “guest essay.”
On Wednesday, the Tribune published a
news article by Sara Olkon and James Janega
about the Open Letter. It too, contained serious
omissions, as well as false and misleading
statements regarding critical parts of the
citizenship controversy. In response, thousands of
Chicagoans flooded the Tribune with their
comments, pro and con. We are preparing a rebuttal
to be submitted as soon as possible.

Monday: WTP Press Conference in DC
As planned, on Monday, December 8, WTP will
conduct a press conference at the National Press
Club in Washington, DC.
Yesterday, we issued a
press release about the event. We
sent the release to approximately 400 media outlets,
including those on the
attached list. The press conference
will feature three of the attorneys behind cases now
at the Supreme Court.
Almost immediately, the Wall Street Journal
posted a item on its “Market
We expect a fair amount of press coverage.
On Monday morning the Supreme Court will also
release its decision regarding whether to hear the
case by attorney Leo Donofrio who challenged the
failure of the New Jersey secretary of state to
verify the eligibility of the Presidential
candidates scheduled to appear on the ballot.
The press conference is scheduled to begin
at 1:30 pm.
U.S. Senator Mel Martinez wrote in his
letter dated December
candidates are vetted by voters at least twice -
first in the primary elections and again in the
general election. President-Elect Obama won the
Democratic Party's nomination after one of the most
fiercely contested presidential primaries in
American history. And, he has now been duly elected
by the majority of voters in the United States.
Throughout both the primary and general election,
concerns about Mr. Obama's birthplace were raised.
The voters have made clear their view that Mr.
Obama meets the qualifications to hold the office of
Sen. Martinez would have us believe that our form of government is
a pure democracy, rather than a constitutional
What if, ostensibly for the same reason, Mr.
Obama refuses to respond to our Open Letter?
What if the Supreme Court refuses to hear
the Petitions by attorneys Donofrio, Berg and Taitz,
ostensibly for the same reason – that is, that the
voters have made clear their view that Mr. Obama is
