No Compromise... Is Back On The Air

You may recall my posting last month about what happened to No Compromise, when Blog Talk Radio interrupted Tracy's interview of Philip J. Berg, who filed a federal law suit about Barack Obama's citizenship qualifications for the Office of President of the United States. Just a few minutes into the interview, Tracy's show was shut down, her account suspended, and the archives placed on hold, unavailable for listening. In fact, going to the show's web site resulted in the site-not-found message.

Now that the election is over, Blog Talk Radio has reinstated No Compromise:
An interesting turn of events occurred: The election is over, so I guess Blog Talk Radio decided it was safe for an outspoken critic of the Obamunist to have her show back. As if I, or anyone else could do any harm to the messiah! If he’s such a messiah why silence his critics? Wow, what a god he must be!...

Perhaps Berg's law suit has no merit. Indeed, a ruling, a dismissal, has already been issued by a federal court, quite an unsatisfactory ruling which did not specifically address the Constitutional questions presented. Berg has now taken his law suit to the United States Supreme Court.

But whatever merit the law suit has or doesn't have isn't the point, particularly with regard to what happened to No Compromise. The point is this: Why the push to silence the discussion, particularly before the election? Also, are Obama's followers so maniacal that they have to silence even the asking of questions? Let's recall these words warning about the supression of free speech, from George Washington:
“If the freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.”
I've been unable to confirm whether or not the Supreme Court of the United States is going to hear Berg's law suit. I have read, however, that Obama, the DNC, and all co-defendants will have to respond to Berg's writ of certiorari by December 1. Wikipedia says the following about writ of certiorari:
A writ of certiorari currently means an order by a higher court directing a lower court to send the record in a given case for review.
But suppose for a minute that Obama is indeed Constitutionally unqualified for the Office of President. Then what? After all, he won the election on November 4.
