selecting a Washington school for his daughters and trying to figure out how
to live without his Blackberry, since presidential communications are public
record. However, the questions over his eligibility to be president aren't
going away, as the top choice among best-sellers at Shop.WND.com this week
is "The Obama Nation," by Jerome Corsi.
The second-place book, "The Audacity of Deceit" by Brad O'Leary, also raises
questions about Obama and his presidency.
The book by Corsi, the senior staff reporter for WND who also wrote the No.
1 New York Times best-seller "Unfit for Command," explains why the extreme
leftism of an Obama presidency will leave the U.S. weak and divided.
He also raises questions about Obama's origins: whether he actually was born
in Hawaii as his campaign has stated or whether the reports, including those
from Obama's own grandmother, that he was born in Kenya are true.
A multitude of court cases have been launched to determine the truth about
Obama's birthplace, and tens of thousands of individuals have petitioned the
U.S. Supreme Court to resolve the unanswered questions.
One California law firm even has announced plans to sue over each and every
presidential action once Obama is inaugurated in January until proof of his
citizenship is established. The questions all revolve around Obama's
birthplace and the fact the U.S. Constitution requires that only a
"natural-born citizen" can occupy the Oval Office.
Corsi traces Obama's career and influences from his early years in Hawaii
and Indonesia, the beginnings of his political career in Chicago, his voting
record in the Illinois Legislature, his religious training, his religious
conversion, his recent involvement in Kenyan politics, his political
advisers and fund-raising associates and his meteoric campaign for
His conclusion? An Obama presidency will be "a repeat of the failed
extremist politics that have characterized and plagued Democratic Party
politics since the late 1960s."
The book reviews Obama's extensive connections with Islam and radical
politics, his 20-year religious affiliation with the black-liberation
theology of Rev. Jeremiah Wright, his involvement in the slum-landlord
empire of Chicago political fixer Tony Rezko and other issues.
Just exactly what is beneath the Obama's well-polished rhetoric? Obama
speaks vaguely about "change," but O'Leary contends Obama's "change" is a
hostile attack on Judeo-Christian values and freedoms most Americans hold
"It is change designed to uproot American culture and replace it with the
failed, secular, socialist policies of the past," according to the book.
O'Leary discusses how Obama blocked emergency medical aid for babies who
survived abortions, plans to ban the use of firearms by law-abiding
citizens - even for self-defense, how his values are influenced by his
childhood abandonment by a Muslim bigamist father, his plans to make the
U.S. Treasury the ATM for the United Nations and his plans to mandate that
child-rearing responsibility be taken from parents and given to the federal
