A WND report on a former Hawaii elections clerk's claim that President Obama was not born in the state has hit YouTube:
The video was produced and posted by Carl Gallups, a Christian pastor in Milton, Fla., who has posted dozens of videos on the Web, including others highlighting questions about Obama.
Gallups notes that YouTube has frozen its view counter at 301 views, and thinks the Google-owned company has done this to prevent the video from being promoted to its featured video section.
"Every time we put up a film that has something to do with Obama, they freeze the counter on us," he said. "And they won't respond to any of my e-mails [asking for an explanation]."
Gallups also noted his local congressman, Republican Jeff Miller, has steadfastly refused to look into the matter of Obama's constitutional eligibility for office.
"Our congressmen are terrified," Gallups said. "Congressmen don't want to touch it."
The WND report cites statements from Tim Adams, a college instructor who worked as a senior elections clerk for the city and county of Honolulu in 2008, that Obama definitely was not born in Hawaii as the White House claims.
Tim Adams, a former senior elections clerk for Honolulu, now teaches English at Western Kentucky University.
"There is no birth certificate," said Adams, a graduate assistant who teaches English at Western Kentucky University in Bowling Green, Ky. "It's like an open secret. There isn't one. Everyone in the government there knows this."
Adams, who says he's a Hillary Clinton supporter who ended up voting for John McCain when Clinton lost the Democratic nomination to Obama, told WND, "I managed the absentee-ballot office. It was my job to verify the voters' identity."
He says during the 2008 campaign when the issue of Obama's constitutional eligibility first arose, the elections office was inundated with requests to verify the birthplace of the U.S. senator from Illinois.
"I had direct access to the Social Security database, the national crime computer, state driver's license information, international passport information, basically just about anything you can imagine to get someone's identity," Adams explained. "I could look up what bank your home mortgage was in. I was informed by my boss that we did not have a birth record [for Obama]."
At the time, there were conflicting reports that Obama had been born at the Queen's Medical Center in Honolulu, as well as the Kapi'olani Medical Center for Women and Children across town. So Adams says his office checked with both facilities.

"They told us, 'We don't have a birth certificate for him,'" he said. "They told my supervisor, either by phone or by e-mail, neither one has a document that a doctor signed off on saying they were present at this man's birth."
To date, no Hawaiian hospital has provided documented confirmation that Obama was born at its facility.
WND confirmed with Hawaiian officials that Adams was indeed working in their election offices during the last presidential election.
"His title was senior elections clerk in 2008," said Glen Takahashi, elections administrator for the city and county of Honolulu.
Takahashi also confirmed Adams' time frame at the office from spring until the month of August.
However, when WND asked Takahashi if the elections office could check on birth records, he said, "We don't have access to that kind of records. [There's] no access to birth records."
Adams responded, "They may say, 'We don't have access to that.' The regular workers don't, the ones processing ballots; but the people in administration do. I was the one overseeing the work of the people doing the balloting."
The issue of Obama's birth goes to the heart of the questions that have been raised in dozens of lawsuits and other challenges that allege Obama may not be eligible to be president under the Constitution's demand that a president be a "natural born citizen."
Another of the videos posted by Gallups addresses the "blasphemies" of President Obama.:
It cites statements from Obama – and about him – that attribute to him a supernatural power, including such headlines as "New Great Redeemer" and "Obama the savior."
