Lester Kinsolving, a reporter for World Net Daily and now the second most senior member of the White House Press Corps asked a very simple question about President Obama's social security number on Thursday June 10,2010. Not only did Mr. Gibbs not answer the question -- but Gibbs dodged the question entirely by diverting, then ridiculing, then attacking. See below:
This is disturbing on so many levels that I hardly know where to begin...
Did you notice the expressions on their faces when Mr. Kinsolving asked the questions? He asked two uncomplicated, straightforward, reasonable questions,"Why is the President using a social security number reserved for Connecticut applicants?" and "Do you know or have any record of the President ever having a mailing address in Connecticut?" Why would the Press Corps be annoyed by such questions? I'm also wondering why the guy in the front row felt compelled to walk out just after the first question?
Are these journalist too lazy to explore or at the very least seek to debunk the claim that President Obama is using a social security number of a deceased Connecticut man who would be 120 years old today? Are they under the mistaken impression that they are too intellectually and/or politically astute to entertain such claims? If so, how shamefully arrogant they are! Or could it be that they have been ordered to ignore, reject, and keep their mouths shut or lose their jobs? If so, by whom? Whatever the reason, We The People are mislead, misguided and misinformed in the process. If the press is not free, then WE are not free. BTW, the video now on C-Span has been scrubbed and Mr. Kinsolving's question is curiously absent.

Gibbs never answered the questions. Instead, knowing that the dumbed down American public have been systematically "conditioned" by the propaganda they have been "conditioned" to think is "news" to dismiss those identified as truthers as racist, right-wing, conspiracy kooks, he brings up the birth certificate issue (which is a legitimate yet demonized issue). He followed the typical tract of an individual who is hiding something....deflect, ridicule, and attack. So, although Mr. Kinsolving wasn't asking about the birth certificate, he conceded that it would be great if he could see it to which Gibbs told a bold-faced lie straight from the pit of hell. He claims that he not only saw Obama's real birth certificate, but he posted it online. Everyone within earshot of that lie should have been infuriated at how stupid this White House and it's inhabitants think we are! He posted a certificate of live birth not a birth certificate and even that was proven to be a forgery!
The level of corruption we are witnessing at this time is astounding, absolutely astounding. God help us.
