Get ready for the last straw.

First, though, I'd like to suggest that anyone reading this column in a local newspaper or news site pat the editor on the back for publishing what in our neo-medieval world of fear amounts to a forbidden column.

Yup, I am about to say something about the Great Barack Obama Identity/Eligibility Scandal again. I know that this is one rich and urgent topic that doesn't see the light of day in certain so-called news outlets -- and I say that from the experience of watching my own syndicated columns fail to appear when covering news of the White House press conference where the president's long-form birth certificate was unveiled, news of courtroom proceedings in various states on Obama's ballot eligibility, and news of Sheriff Joe Arpaio's investigators presenting evidence that the online Obama birth certificate is a forgery.

So be it. This was, as noted, the last straw.

I refer to something radio host Sean Hannity said on his show this week. He was speaking in rebuttal to a Democrat arguing that racism was a problem among conservatives. As evidence, the Democrat brought up the birther issue -- the label used to encapsulate any topic related to Obama's identity documents and constitutional eligibility. Erroneously, it is a label that narrowly connotes, and derisively so, only the belief that President Obama wasn't born in the United States.

In fact, the whereabouts of Obama's nativity is in no way the main bone of birther contention, despite the blinkered focus on it by the enforcers of silence. Of far greater concern to me, for starters, is the purportedly original documentation President Obama belatedly provided the American people to attest to his identity.

I refer to the electronic image of a long-form 1961 Hawaiian birth certificate posted at the White House website. After studying various evidence and demonstrations (which I've written about in previous forbidden columns), I've concluded that this online image is in all probability a forgery.

So has Sheriff Arpaio's Cold Case Posse out in Maricopa County, Ariz. So, too, has the Israel Science and Technology website, a national database and directory of science- and technology-related sites in Israel established by Benjamin Netanyahu's former science adviser, molecular biologist Israel Hanukoglu, Ph.D.

If these investigations are correct, we are looking at the greatest fraud in modern history as put over by the flimflam administration and enabled by armies of accessories practically everywhere else.
