White House Will Not Show Bin Laden Death Photo

On Wednesday The White House announced the photo of a dead Osama bin Laden will not released to the public for fear causing Protests and the picture used to recruit for Al Qeda. From CBS News:

In an interview with Steve Kroft for this Sunday’s “60 Minutes” conducted today, President Obama said he won’t release post-mortem images of Osama bin Laden taken to prove his death.

“It is important to make sure that very graphic photos of somebody who was shot in the head are not floating around as an incitement to additional violence or as a propaganda tool,” said the president.

“We don’t trot out this stuff as trophies,” Mr. Obama added. “The fact of the matter is, this is somebody who was deserving of the justice that he received.”

Finally President Obama Releases his Long Form Birth Certificate Donald Trump Takes Credit For Release

It it’s finally over President Barack Obama presented his long for birth certificate Wednesday. This comes after Donald Trump haranguing for the last three weeks. From Fox News:

In an interview with Oprah Winfrey set to air Monday, May 2nd, the daytime host asked President Obama why he released his birth certificate now. The president explained that in these serious times, “we can’t be distracted by sideshows”.

The President told the TV host that while he was dealing with the budget debate, “the biggest news was this birth certificate thing.”

And so he was prompted to release the long form of his birth certificate, to put the “silliness” to rest. President Obama released a “certificate of live birth” during his 2008 race for presidency. But the so-called “birther” movement developed when critics of the now-president questioned his citizenship.

The silliness began when Hillary Rhodham Clinton  presidential campaign was looking into then Senator Obama records and believed that he was not born in the  US.  That in-turn  launched the so-called birther movement. A conspiracy theory  which some on the far right leaped on when Obama was elected President in November 2,2008.
Many in the African-American community felt that the birther movement was racially motivated. But in truth, Democrats did the same thing to Sen. John McCain(R-AZ) saying that because McCain was born in US Canal Zone in Panama he wasn’t a citizen. The excuse by the Left was the Panama Canal was returned to Republic of Panama  in 1979 by then President Jimmy Carter.
Billionaire Donald Trump claimed a victory of sorts. From Real Clear Politics:

I’m taking great credit and you have to ask the president, ‘why didn’t he do this a long time ago? Why didn’t he do it a long time ago?’

By engaging the White House in releasing the document  this show that Trump has leadership skills that the president is sorely lacking.

The Birth of Jesus Christ

Luke 2:1-7

2:1 In those days Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be taken of the entire Roman world. 2 (This was the first census that took place while Quirinius was governor of Syria.) 3 And everyone went to his own town to register.

4 So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David, because he belonged to the house and line of David. 5 He went there to register with Mary, who was pledged to be married to him and was expecting a child. 6 While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, 7 and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.

“And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the Babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger” (Luke 2:12).

“Glory to God in the highest, and on Earth peace, good will toward men” (Luke 2:14).

“And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into Heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the LORD hath made known unto us. And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the Babe lying in a manger” (Luke 2:15-16).

To all of the readers of Smart and Silly may God Bless and Keep You! Merry Christmas! One and All!
