Letters to the Editor Oct. 30, 2012

To the Editor:

With all due respect, I suggest that Mr. Charles Bowling (letter to editor published Oct. 23) look up the facts regarding the number of executive orders signed by President Obama. The stated 923 is an urban legend as are many of the other remarks in his letter.

If you would bother to verify the information you wrote about, you would know this.

This is nothing other than right wing lies to discredit our current president.

By all means, vote. And vote for your choice. But do it based on facts and not vicious rumors.

As of Aug. 10, 2012, President Obama had signed 135 executive orders.

Yours truly,

Rita Knapp


To the Editor:

Karl Swihart of Avon persuaded Dr. Orly Taitz, a California lawyer who attacks President Obama's birth records etc., to make me her sponsoring lawyer for suit in Indianapolis to remove Mr. Obama from the ballot as not being a natural born citizen

 I did, to the chagrin of many who regard me as strange. Maybe I am, but I am also curious.

Not even sure why I write.

The trial was Oct. 22 in Judge S. K. Reid's court, she a former adversary in a case I had. Judge Reid is honest, brave. We disagree, but respect each other.

We have been "gobsmacked," a word Kimberly Strassel of the Wall Street Journal uses to mean shocked, ambushed.

The birth certificate the White House published 18 months ago online to prove Mr. Obama's birth 4 August 1971 in Honolulu is a forgery, so says expert Paul Irey, formerly of Air Force intelligence.

No contrary evidence was offered, though opponents were informed of the evidence in March or so.

The evidence is in.

This is not a political case, it is a Constitutional Law case.

This is a nightmare. May God protect this nation.
