Congressional Members Knew Obama Was Ineligible to Run for President Did Nothing

The following statements were written by Constitutional lawyer Peter J. Spiro when discussing John McCain’s eligibility problems to run for the office of President.

Substitute Obama’s name for McCain’s and it is easy to see how we have arrived at this moment in history with America’s first knowingly ineligible President. The names and comments inserted in parenthesis are my mine & not Mr. Spiro’s.

 

OBAMA RIPS UP CONSTITUTION

[…] Constitutional questions do not require constitutional decisions. If non-judicial actors, including Congress (Frank, Hatch, Kennedy, Waters, Graham, McCaskill, Conyers), editorialists (NY Times, MSNBC, LA Times et al), leading members of the bar (Turley, Dean, Epstein, Toobin), and the People themselves (can you say Kool-Aid?) manage to generate a constitutional consensus, there isn’t much that the courts can do about it. In cases such as this one, at least, that seems to be an acceptable method of constitutional determination. (Acceptable? In a country that is supposed to function under and revere the rule of law? May I state for the record that you Sir are an arrogant SOB!)

[…]On the contrary, it would define the Constitution. The episode would supply an authoritative source for the determination of constitutional meaning, circa 2009. The presidential eligibility of those with similar citizenship pedigrees would be conclusively established. (President Schwarzenegger)

These statements provide the game plan used to  knowingly elect a man clearly ineligible to serve as POTUS. Look at these statements. Read and re-read them again. Let them sink in! Once they do, there cannot be any question as to the extent of the betrayal by people in whom the citizens of this country placed their trust. The actions (or inactions) of these actors may not rise to the legal definition of treason, but IMHO their behavior remains unconscionable at best.

 

The question isn’t which Congressional members knew Obama was ineligible to hold the office of POTUS. The real question is, who didn’t know Obama was ineligible and yet remained silent.

 

Why would any member of Congress or any elected official sworn to uphold and defend the Constitution do nothing and allow a man who lacks the requisite natural born citizen qualification under Article II Section 1 to become President?

 

The answer is simple; because there are members of Congress, who are themselves lawyers (and should possess a better understanding of the NBC clause) who don’t like the natural born citizen clause. That is actually an understatement. As stated in Part One, numerous legislators, along with an assortment of other actors in the media and elsewhere believe that the NBC requirement is no longer necessary, is discriminatory, and consider the clause to be un-American in a land of immigrants. (Say what?)

 

These are people who believe in the New World Order, or consider themselves to be citizens of the world along with Obama, and/or believe (or want us to believe) that the significance of citizenship is fading! They would have us believe that this country no longer faces threats from outside sources intent on destroying this country and our way of life so having a President that isn’t a natural born citizen is no big deal.

 

We have varied Congressional actors who knew Obama was ineligible and did nothing. They include:

  1. those who knew Obama was a fraud and simply didn’t care as long as their political agenda was met
  2. those who knew and were already comprised when they supported McCain with the non-binding Senate Resolution 511because making an exception for McCain gave them an excuse to make a bigger exception for Obama
  3. those who knew that the MSM would savage them for speaking the truth and could point to it without leading the charge. Is there anyone who believes the Clintons could have brought Obama’s citizenship status to the forefront without being viciously savaged and being called racists?
  4. those who support Arnold Schwarzenegger, knowing if Obama’s phony presidency is allowed to stand that precedence will have been set for him to run for POTUS.

 

The NBC clause has been a cause of concern dating back to 1860’s. At least 2 dozen attempts have been made to change the clause over the years. Despite the MSM propaganda on the topic, attention to the natural born citizenship requirement for POTUS didn’t begin with Obama and it has not one whit to do with the color of his skin.

 

Since 2000 there have been accelerated attempts to address the conundrum of Article II Section 1 of the Constitution. The most serious attempt was a hearing to discuss H.J.Res. 88 and held on July 24, 2000 by Congressman Barney Frank. Take of look at the names on the committees, do any of them look familiar?

 

Before you review these names let me point something out. While H.J.Res. 88 dealt with an amendment to allow foreign-born citizens to become President, one cannot review the hearing notes without recognizing that these same points pertain to McCain and Obama equally.

 

Some of these people are still in office and some are not, but all understand the meaning and consequences of the requirement that the President of the United States be a natural born citizen.

Who else we can point to? How about Ted Kennedy who said he would support a constitutional amendment that would enable his niece’s foreign-born husband, California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, to run for President.

Or Sen. Arlen Specter (D-Pa.), who succeeded Hatch, said of Schwarzenegger: “The guy has become governor of California. What more credentials could you ask?”

Or Orrin Hatch who sponsored the “Arnold Amendment” in 2003 or John Conyers in 2006.

You want more? Do you know how many members of Congress hold law degrees? The number is 132 in the House of Representatives and 60 in the Senate.

 

1. Thirty-eight law schools have graduates serving in the senate.

2. Harvard Law boasts the most U.S. senators, with eight (Schumer, Stevens, Crapo, Dole, Obama, Feingold, Levin, Reed,). UVA Law is a close second, with seven (Bayh, Warner, Whitehouse, Kennedy, Bond, Cornyn, Nelson).

3. Four schools have two alumni serving in the U.S. senate, Alabama (Sessions, Shelby), Catholic (Casey, Harkin), GWU (Inoyue, Reid), Mississippi (Cochran, Lott).

4. Following schools have one each; Michigan (Salazar), Chicago (Klobuchar), Georgetown and NYU (Alexander)

5. Yale Law (Clinton, Lieberman, Specter); Georgetown (Durbin, Leahy, Webb)

 

Why is listing the number of Congressional members with law degrees so important?

 

Because these are people who have more than a basic understanding of the Constitution and the requirements to hold the office of President. And if all of this wasn’t enough, let’s not forget about the DNC, Nancy Pelosi, and Howard Dean; all who have sworn to the public that Obama is eligible to be President at the same they have worked with Obama to keep his every record verifying his citizenship status (at the time of his birth) from the public.

 

Is it necessary for me to point out that one doesn’t spend hundreds of thousands of dollars to keep records secret if there are no secrets to keep?

 

If you do nothing else this weekend, download a copy of the H.J. 88 hearing chaired by Barney Frank in July 2000. Pay particular attention to Frank’s objections to the natural born citizen clause of the Constitution; then review pages 17 through 25 and the comments of Mr. Vazsonyl. You can jump to pages 42 though 50 and read the comments of historian Forrest McDonald.

 

Both men talk about the beauty and majesty of our Constitution, the rationale and significance of retaining the natural born citizen clause of the Constitution, and point out that being able to run for the office of President of our country is not a right.

As Mr. Vazsonly, himself a naturalized citizen, points out:

Our Government consists of three independent branches. In the legislative branch with its two Chambers, one of them has hundreds of Members, so a few foreigners among them really do not make that much difference. The Senate only consists of 100 Members, so 1 or 2 out of 100 again is something else. Even the Supreme Court has nine members.

 

Alone, the executive branch of this Government is vested in a single person. I don’t think that it is an excessive requirement of the office for that person to have grown from the American soil.

 

I come back to my statement, which is not particularly palatable in today’s political climate, that Americans are different. We like to believe that all people are the same. In my experience, they are not.

 

[…] It is unthinkable, ladies and gentlemen, that a legislator in another land would actually spend time proposing that some foreigner could become the first citizen of that land. So, Congressman Frank, you are as good an example as I have met to show that Americans pour their hearts out and want to share everything, even the Presidency.

 

I would say respectfully that describing this provision of the Constitution, as I said, and I will say once again, one of the solitary miracles of human history, as victimizing immigrants or being unjust, to be able to run for President is not a  right.  It is very important not to confuse the system of government with rights. Where would such a right come from? It is a well-thought-out provision of our Constitution.

 

I am here to tell you, after 41 years of making the most strenuous efforts of becoming American, not just legally but in every sense of the word, and having spent 40 of those 41 years living with a native-born American, that I still have not been able to even approach the temperament, the natural tolerance, the unfailing good will toward the world that Americans are famous for.

 

Foreigners come here and have to learn it. It is a miracle that within one generation they can do so. I think it would be expecting something even more than the impossible that they can do it within the same lifetime, and that they can forget everything they had grown up with.

    Hillary, You and the usurper are responsible for 4 American deaths at Benghazi! Grand Birther told the SHEEPLE IN 2008 before Obama was elected that his election would lead to a Constitutional Crisis, that he would be a Cancer On The pResidency, that the cost of living would increase, and the standard of living would decrease simultaneously. Now for the latest NEWS.
    U.S. jobs pay an average 23% less today than they did before the 2008 recession, according to a new report released on Monday by the United States Conference of Mayors.
    In total, the report found $93 billion in lost wages.
    Jobs lost during the recession paid an average $61,637. As of 2014, jobs in the same sectors paid an average of $47,171 annually.
    "Under a similar analysis conducted by the Conference of Mayors during the 2001-2002 recession, the wage gap was only 12% compared to the current 23%–meaning the wage gap has nearly doubled from one recession to the next," stated the Conference of Mayors in a statement.
    The report also found that 73% of metro area households earn salaries of less than $35,000 a year.
    President Barack Obama, who is on a two-week vacation at Martha's Vineyard, has yet to comment on the dour economic findings. http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2014/08/1

    Great post MoniQue!

    I heard Rod Class on the Patriot Heart network, http://www.blogtalkradio.com/PatriotsHeartNetwork/2009/08/26/The-Citizens-Grand-Jury, about 3 weeks ago. He is great! He’s a great, mesmerizing storyteller. Their case is coming up: Case Schedule

    11/06/2009 09:30 AM Initial Scheduling Conference-60

    The government is in default.

    They posted a press release on my forum, if you are interested:

    ———–

    Each of these Congressional thugs knew about the usurper as 1000’s of us contacted them prior to the election, afterwards & up to inaugaration — and did nothing. We contacted the delegates to, from every state.

    Months ago Mario Apuzzo, Esq. was requesting the signed receipts for Congress for their notification. I submitted mine right away.

    Did you know that the Federal government is NOT BOUND BY CONSTITUTIONAL LAW!!?

    It’s later than we think and it worse than we know. Please if there ever was something to take the time out to listen to – it’s this interview with 2 legal researchers about our federal government and the forming of the US as a CORPORATION back in 1933 in order for them to disobey the legal tender laws of the Constitution.

    ******** L I S T E N T O INTERVIEW H E R E *******

    That is why no one gives a ** whether Obama is qualified or not. That is why nothing we bring up constitutionally against the feds ever comes to fruition. THE ONLY COURT THESE WASH DC FEDS ARE ACCOUNTABLE IS THE SUPERIOR COURT IN DC – BECAUSE THEY ARE PART OF A CORPORATION, AND NOT THE US CONSTITUTION, WHICH BY THE WAY WAS ACTUALLY SUSPENDED BACK IN 1933 FED RESERVE ACT.

    Please post this breaking news from Blog Talk Radio (Patriot Hearts Network) regarding Washington DC Superior court being possibly the only court we can bring suit against our federal government, including our “president.” The researchers say the reason for this is Obama is not held by Constitutional law, BECAUSE THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT IS SET UP AS A CORPORATION OF WHICH OBAMA IS CHANCELLOR/PRESIDENT.

    You’ve got to listen to this program. It’s 2 hours and around the middle of the program is when legal researchers Joyce Wallrose and Rod Class (not sure if that’s the exact spelling of their last names) get cookin’.

    It will leave one speechless. From the Federal Reserve Act and suspending the Constitution to the fact that the federal government being a CORPORATION (which was done behind our backs) to the fact that every bill in congress by law must be read in its entirety whether it’s 1 page long or 1,500 pages long, and then read in its entirety a second time, AND every bill must be approved by us the American citizens, and more. None of this is being done and hasn’t been since 1933 when our president at the time suspended the Constitution and signed up with the devil (Federal Reserve) and this is why Obama doesn’t have to meet the qualifications of president via the Constitution.

    GO TO THIS LINK AND IF YOU WANT TO GET TO THE MEAT OF THINGS FAST FORWARD TO ABOUT THE 37 MINUTE MARK. The beginning has a legal researcher named Rod Class and after him and during him there’s a real sharp lady named Joyce Rosewall (I am not sure of the spelling of her and Rod’s last names but that’s what it sounded like they said on the show.

    Here’s the direct URL to begin playing this breaking news from the show done on 8-26-09
