Tag Archives: Article II Section 1

WHAT DO MARCO RUBIO, BOBBY JINDAL, & ROGER CALERO HAVE IN COMMON WITH BARACK OBAMA?

What do these men share? Hmmm, I wonder what could it possibly be?

Oh, I know…how about not one of them is eligible to hold the office of POTUS. Every one of these men is accomplished, intelligent, and ineligible to run for or hold the office of the presidency.

After watching Faux Obama’s “Presidency” for the last two years, it is clear that our Founding Fathers were spot on correct in seeing the necessity for having a natural born citizen as POTUS … essentially a second generation American citizen at the very least. One cannot represent all of our citizens if one does not understand America.

The qualifications to hold the office of President as stated in Article II Section 1 of the Constitution are few but very specific. The person must be at least 35 years old, resided in the country for at least 14 years, and have been born a Natural Born Citizen (NBC) of this United States.

One cannot become a NBC after birth or be granted natural born citizenship in the manner the Senate tried to do with John McCain by passing the non-binding Senate Resolution 511. As I’ve said in the past, if McCain really was a NBC there was no logical reason for SR 511, was there?

Birther Bashers” want you to think that this is a made up issue fueled by Obama opponents, racists and radicals on the Right.

The MSM & all the cable networks use this contrived argument to obscure the reality that the Natural Born Citizen requirement for our country’s presidency is much bigger than any man, including Obama.

Let’s be clear. The term and eligibility requirement is natural born citizen, not naturalized citizen, not native born citizen, not citizen of the United States. Each type of citizenship has a legal definition and is very specific despite the attempts by Team Obama, the co-conspirators in the judiciary, Congress, and the MSM to conflate the terms and bastardize the Presidency.

The essence of Obama’s ineligibility revolves around his Kenyan father who was a British subject at the time of his birth. His underage mother could not pass her citizenship to her son. He has always been ineligible to hold the office of POTUS and he knows it as do the people surrounding him.

Marco Rubio is the junior Senator from Florida. He is a very attractive Republican candidate and he is ineligible to run for the Presidency because his parents were Cuban born. He’s the kind of candidate Karl Rove could love, as well as a slew of independents and Hispanics alike. It doesn’t matter, he cannot run.

Bobby Jindal was born in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, to Amar and Raj Jindal, who came to the United States as immigrants from Punjab, India.

He’s doing a fine job as Governor of Louisiana. He could run for Senator one day, but he cannot run for POTUS and is disqualified for the same reasons that Marco Rubio is.

The last name is one you may not know unless you’ve been following Obama’s ineligibility since he was first a candidate.

Mr. Calero was born in Nicaragua, holds a green card and has run as the Socialist Worker’s Party presidential candidate in 2004 and 2008. Is there any question as to his ineligibility?

The man isn’t even a U.S. citizen yet shockingly, in 2008 Calero’s name appeared on the presidential ballot in Delaware, Minnesota, New Jersey, New York and Vermont showing the ineptitude of these four Secretaries of State.

His name was part of the Donofrio v Wells suit against the New Jersey Secretary of State and is part of the most important Constitutional lawsuit you have (most likely) never heard of Strunk v Paterson.

For the first time since challenges to Obama’s eligibility have arisen, a NY Judge has opined on what Natural Born citizen is, in this ongoing case, and has concluded Obama is not a natural born citizen!



HERMAN CAIN CAN DEFEAT OBAMA IN 2012

AJC FILE PHOTO

CNN is already calling Herman Cain Obama’s worst nightmare, and they are right!


I happened across Mr. Cain several weeks ago and was immediately struck by his demeanor, his life story, and his accomplishments. He is pragmatic, a man of action, and the kind of grownup this country desperately needs. In other words, he is a man of substance unlike the ethereal Obama.

He also meets the presidential requirement of being a Natural Born Citizen under Article II Section 1 of the Constitution. Oh, BTW did I mention he doesn’t need a teleprompter to give a speech or utter a coherent sentence? I say, “what’s not to love?”

Cain, a virtual unknown outside of Georgia, is 65. A local talk show host, he recently formed a presidential exploration committee. His business credentials include being the former chairman and CEO of Godfather’s Pizza. He served as the former chairman (1995-96) and deputy chairman (1992-94) of the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City. This is a man who understands business and knows how to create jobs!

His critics call him a racist because he disagrees with the Poseur Obama and fault him for attending Tea Party meetings. Bet hey, Obots call anyone who disagrees with Obama racist!

The Hermanator, as he was called in a recent Atlanta Journal Constitution article, is a cancer survivor.

In 2006, he was diagnosed with liver and colon cancer and given little chance to live. But since January 2007, he added, he’s been cancer-free.

There are two reasons why, Cain told the audience.

First, God said, “Not yet, Herman.You’ve got some work to do.”

Yes sir, Mr. Cain, I believe you do have more work to do! Take 30 minutes and view his recent speech at CPAC over at TD Blog here.



LIVING WITH THE CONSEQUENCES OF FOX NEWS FAILURE TO HONESTLY INVESTIGATE OBAMA’S ELIGIBLITY FOR PRESIDENT

What are the consequences? In one word…ObamaCare.

Obama is fraudulently sitting in the oval office, a fact known by the MSM, numerous members of Congress, and the legal community of this country. He sits there because of the direct actions of Nancy Pelosi, Howard Dean, and the DNC…actions that can only be defined as treason.

There would be no President Obama had FOX conducted a factual and thorough investigation of Obama’s background. I put the onus squarely on FOX because the network represents that it is doing the job the MSM has refused to do.

Absolutes in life are easy to understand. For instance, either you are pregnant or you aren’t. One cannot be half pregnant in the same way one cannot be a partial virgin, or for that matter, a sometimes whore. These are absolutes; either you are or you aren’t.  Sometime whores delude themselves with lies of omission, only counting the days they don’t screw around, as it were.

FOX News continues to be a sometimes whore when it comes the Constitutional issues surrounding Obama’s eligibility for the office of POTUS. While Hannity, Beck, and O’Reilly pretend to hold Obama’s policies up for intense scrutiny, the network obfuscates the genuine issues of Obama’s citizenship. And so, FOX on-air personalities carry on about the Commerce Clause of the Constitution and other Obama abuses while remaining silent on the Natural Born Citizen Clause, pretending to ignore the elephant we all know is in the room.

Fox talking heads disparage “Birthers” remaining steadfastly silent about Obama being born a British citizen; steadfastly silent on why this always disqualified him from running for the highest office in the land.

Never, not once, did you hear a discussion about his dual citizenship or his Indonesian citizenship … both of which ALSO disqualify him from the presidency.

There is no shortage of irony here, given the fact that FOX Network has so many on- air personalities and contributors who are also attorneys Yet the network that touts it’s mantra ( Fair & Balanced) while it continues to lie to the America people about the true nature of the Natural Born Citizen clause of the Constitution and Obama’s crimes getting into office. Lies of omission are lies, the worst kind in my book.

Obama Care would not exist had FOX had the courage to do what the rest of the MSM were incapable of doing. No one expected MSNBC, CNN, or anyone else in the MSM to do the heavy lifting. But what was FOX’s excuse? Had Obama been exposed for the fraud he is during the primaries we would be talking about President Hillary Clinton and real health care legislation.

The consequences of FOX News lies of omission have brought us Glen Beck crying about how Obama and his pals are ignoring the Constitution. He is surprised? Really? Team Obama and the Progressives hate the Constitution! Want to see how much? Watch:

… AND SO IT GOES



RONALD REAGAN WARNED ABOUT SOCIALISM & PROGRESSIVES & WE DIDN’T LISTEN!

This was originally written in 2010 shortly after Obamacare passed on a strictly partisan basis…not a single GOP member voting for it.

 

I never really cared for Ronald Reagan that much, having believed the propaganda from the left and the MSM, that he wasn’t terribly bright … I was wrong!  I confess to thinking he was just a nice man who could tell a good joke … after all he had impeccable timing having been an actor, don’t you know!

 

I always thought that the term liberal main stream media, was a fabrication of all those nasty Republicans and conservatives … I was wrong. Watching the Constitutionally ineligible Obama get elected in 2008 watching and the tactics (truth squads, voter intimidation) used by Team Obama (and the MSM) to obstruct the will of the voters (18 millions voters can’t be wrong), to side-step and ignore the Constitution has completely changed my opinion.

 

This doesn’t mean that I will ever call myself a Republican or that I admire everything the Reagan administration did.  They used sleight of hand just as effectively as Obama, Pelosi, and Reid do today.  After all who can forget  Iran-Contra or the huge deficit Reagan left upon leaving office?

 

That having been said, how can one listen to these videos and not acknowledge Reagan was right when it came to socialism and the progressives?  Think yesterday’s “historic” passage of the Dem’s health care package happened in a vacuüm?

 

Think again. Damn it, Reagan was right!

 

And so, today we have government mandated health care for every citizen with the threat of 16,500 IRS agents to be hired every month to make sure every citizen purchases health insurance … this in the land of the free and the brave!

A Review of the Top 7 Obama Lies in 2009

There are lies and then there are damnable lies.

Number 1 –

Barack Hussein Obama is eligible to hold the office of POTUS. BHO has never been eligible to be President.  His desire for truth and transparency in government is selectively applied; but never as it applies to any record that verifies he is a Natural Born Citizen.  On the first day in office he issued his first executive order that specified that all of HIS personal records were to be withheld from the public!

Here’s a partial list of what we still can’t see:  (more here)

  1. Certified copy of original birth certificate
  2. Columbia University transcripts and thesis
  3. Occidental College Transcripts
  4. Campaign donor analysis requested by 7 major watchdog groups
  5. Harvard University transcripts
  6. Illinois State Senate records and schedule
  7. Law practice client list and billing records/summary
  8. Locations and names of all half-siblings and step-mothers
  9. Medical records (only the one page summary released so far)
  10. Parent’s marriage Certificate
  11. Record of baptism
  12. Selective Service registration records
  13. Schedules for trips outside of the United States before 2007
  14. List of all campaign workers that are lobbyists
  15. Punahou grade school records

Whether BHO was born in Kenya or Hawaii is immaterial.  What counts is his citizenship status on the day he was born! His Kenyan father was a British subject and as such British citizenship was passed onto Barack.  His mother was too young to confer her citizenship status on her son. The fact that BHO admits to being a dual citizen (opps… make that Citizen of the World) automatically disqualifies him as well.  To date, World Net Daily has  estimated that BHO and his team of obscurers of fact have spent 1.7 million keeping the truth hidden. So much for truth and transparency!


Number 2 -

If BHO was elected he would govern as a moderate and in a bipartisan manner.  Well, the jokes on all the fools who believed that trash.

Obama’s policies are extreme by any measure. Let’s see Obama has given us TARP, passed without anyone in Congress having read the bill.  We have multiple czars (34 at last count?) that act as his shadow government, we’ve witnessed the government takeover of the banking industry, most of the US auto industry, bailouts for Wall Street and nothing for small business and Main Street.  The coup de grâce is Obama’s healthcare legislation despised by 85% of Americans who want change but not this boondoggle!  If this guy isn’t a radical, who is?  The question in 2010 isn’t, “will the corrupt Dems  lose seats in Congress?”  The question is, “How many seats will be lost?”

Number 3 -

Obama’s election would change the world’s view of America … our enemies would suddenly put down their spears and pick up ploughshares because of the color of Obama’s skin … and the choir sang Amen!   Let’s see, South American dictator Hugo Chavez, who thought Bush left a sulfur smell when he talked at the United Nations finds Obama leaves that same sulfur smell behind.  The Iranians have just flipped Obama “the bird”  when it comes to their nuclear program.  They have every intention of enriching nuclear fuel.  Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s latest notice to Obama is simple, “try and stop us!”

And while we are at it, there are many people in Europe who are finally coming to see what an empty suit BHO really is.  Obama-mania is finally over and the Obama hangover has set in! The Brits call him President Pantywaist!

Number 4 -

Race relations in this country were going to improve. Not only haven’t race relations improved, they have gotten worse.  Of course, yelling “racist” every time anyone with lighter skin than BHO holds an opposing view hasn’t helped.  In fact, the race card has been played so many times it no longer shocks anyone … it does quite the opposite including “pissing” people off.

Number 5 -

Obama became our first black President.  Come on now, not only isn’t he our first black president he isn’t even the first man in office whose bi-racial background was known.  According to Diversity Inc. not only isn’t Obama our first mixed race president at least five other presidents came from mixed race backgrounds.  Historian Leroy Vaughn, author of Black People and Their Place in World History state emphatically that Thomas Jefferson was the nation’s first black president.

Number 6 –

Obama is a great orator.  Ah, not exactly.  This is true, but only as long as BHO has his teleprompter with him.  Ever hear him try to speak without his teleprompter?  He sounds like he is barely educable. Remember this golden oldie?

Number – 7

If Obama were elected, blacks and other minorities would thrive and advance.  With the jobless rate over 10% in middle class communities, the black unemployment rate is 15.6 percent today, as opposed to 11.9 percent in December 2008, over 50 percent higher than the white unemployment rate.

Rep. Maxine Waters made it clear that the caucus could cause trouble for future Democratic bills by voting with the Republicans. The protest was in response to what the CBC considers to be a blatant disregard for African American issues by the Obama Administration.





Breaking: FOX CHALLENGED TO FINALLY REVEAL TRUTH ABOUT OBAMA’S INELIGIBILITY & voilà … WHITE HOUSE SUDDENLY WANTS TRUCE WITH FNC

Yesterday I called out FOX , here, and said it was time for them to stop the cover up of Obama’s ineligibility to hold the office of POTUS.

When O’Reilly dissed Captain Pamela Barnett on his show on Tuesday he put himself and FOX in a box.  FNC does the best job of covering the news … in fact, it remains the only place to get real news … CNN, MSNBC, and the balance of the networks long ago abdicated news in favor of Obama adoration and opinions ad naseum.

I made two points.

One, the White House was lucky FNC hadn’t covered the Constitutional crisis and Obama’s fraudulent path to the presidency and two, since the White House had declared war on FNC, why shouldn’t FNC finally tell the country the truth about the real issues of Obama’s ineligibility under Article II Section 1 of the Constitution.

Guess what? As if by magic,  TODAY the White House wants a truce with FOX! hmmm, hmmm, hmmm! TVNewser is reporting the following:

“Truce” Between White House and Fox News?

By Kevin Allocca on Oct 28, 2009 03:56 PM

clemente-gibbs_10-28.jpg

Breaking: FishbowlDC scoops that Fox News SVP Michael Clemente met with White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs this morning and the two reached what some are calling a “truce” in the ongoing and very public war of words between the Obama administration and the news network.

Clemente, who oversees FNC’s news coverage, then met with staffers at the Washington bureau and encouraged them to remain “fair and balanced,” reports FBDC’s Matt Dornic.

An Obama administration official confirms with TVNewser that Clemente and Gibbs met this morning at the White House.

MEMO TO FOX: This doesn’t get FOX off the hook … it’s time for your network to do its job.  If you don’t tell the real story of Obama’s ineligibility,  you have lost all credibility in the eyes of millions of viewers who have switched to FNC seeking the truth.


O’REILLY & FOX NEWS CHALLENGED BY PLAINTIFF IN OBAMA BIRTH CERTIFICATE LAWSUIT – GOING TO DISS ME? PUT UP OR SHUT UP!

Bill O´Reilly on TVThere is no shortage of irony here.

First, we have all heard O’Reilly pontificate that people were afraid to come on his show and spar with him because he is a simple man … a seeker of the truth.

{{ and the choir sang Amen}}

This song has been going on for years. Second, we have the recent White House war on FOX News ostensibly because FNC is supposed to be an extension of the Republican Part and the GOP.

One would never know that to be true given FNC’s phony coverage of Obama’s eligibility to be POTUS! You see, it has never been about just Obama’s birth certificate, it has always been about his citizenship status on the day he was born; O’Reilly and his pals knew that last night!

If you have been following the issues surrounding our faux President Obama (called that until he proves otherwise), you know that FOX has been as complicit at covering and obscuring the truth as the rest of quislings in the MSM. Obama and the White House should be counting their lucky stars that FOX hasn’t reported the truth to date.

That all changed last night when O’Reilly dissed plaintiff Captain Pamela Barnett as a disgruntled military person that didn’t want to be deployed as her reason for challenging Obama’s eligibility to hold the office of POTUS.

If you watched O’Reilly during his legal segment ( with two lawyers sitting across from him), you saw him continue the intentional and ongoing obfuscation of the real issues surrounding Obama as a natural born citizen as required by Article II Section 1 of the Constitution.

Much to my surprise, I just learned that Captain Barnett has issued the following challenge to the “Seeker of Truth O’Reilly”:

From Captain Pamela Barnett to Bill O’Reilly onOctober 28, 2009

I challenge you Mr. O’Reilly to interview me.

I am Captain Pamela Barnett U.S. Army Retired of Barnett v. Barack Obama.

I am sick and tired of you defaming our lawsuit and our attorney against the Resident in the White House Obama. 48 plaintiffs mostly military retired have brought this lawsuit to force the production of Obama’s vital records to determine if he is in fact a NATURAL BORN CITIZEN which is one of the requirements to be a legal POTUS and NOT an illegal USURPER. There is also a huge amount of information regarding fraud that Obama committed before being illegally sworn in as POTUS.

IF YOU CARE ABOUT THE TRUTH AT ALL.. YOU WILL CALL ME…

FROM WHAT I CAN SEE OF YOUR SHOW, THE TRUTH DOES NOT SEEM TO MATTER TO YOU OR THE REST OF THE SHILLS AT FOX. I KNOW THAT YOU ARE ONLY A COMMENTATOR, BUT AT LEAST GET YOUR FACTS STRAIGHT BEFORE HURTING OUR CASE AND PROPAGATING LIES TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.

Sincerely,

CPT Pamela Barnett, U.S.Army Retired

Memo to O’Reilly and FNC: Now its time to put up or shut up.

Are you going to cover the biggest story since Watergate or not? This story is NEVER going away and the millions of people following this will never let up. FNC can choose to be on the right side of history.

There is only one choice … put Captain Barnett on. If you don’t,  you will giving the world conclusive proof that both FNC and its talent know how to talk about being “Fair and Balanced” and little else! When the “Big O “opened his mouth last night and dissed Barnett, er attorney, and the millions of “birthers” who have been seeking the truth you put yourselves into a box!

While you are at it you should put Leo Donofrio and Mario Apuzzo on and a host of others can can bring real insight to the issues. Don’t know who should be part of FNC’s extensive coverage of the real issues surrounding Obama’s eligibility to hold office? Call me or look here and here.

Besides, seems to me FNC owes no allegiance to the White House any more. That should have stopped the day they declared war against your network.

BOTH INELIGIBLE

SHOCKING! MORE PROOF … MEMBERS OF CONGRESS ALWAYS KNEW OBAMA WAS INELIGIBLE FOR THE PRESIDENCY (UPDATED)

The work by Linda A. Melin, Citizen Researcher in her three part series, at Constitutionally Speaking is a must read.

The enormity of what took place in the 2008 election for President of the United States is both stunning and sobering. The reality is, not only did we have two candidates running for the office who were constitutionally ineligible to hold office as required under Article II, Section 1, Clause 5 (A2, S1, C5) of the Constitution, but in order for this to happen, high ranking officials in both the DNC and the RNC (whose job is to verify and certify the eligibility of their candidates to hold the office of POTUS) had to falsify and/or modify documents certifying their candidates eligibility to the 50 Secretarys of State.

I want you to go to Constitutionally Speaking (CS)… but not quite yet.

As I have written numerous times, most members of Congress (past and present), knew that Obama was constitutionally ineligible for the office of President and remained silent. The names include Barney Frank, Maxine Waters, Shelia Jackson Lee, Joe Scarborough, Ted Kennedy, Orrin Hatch… the list is endless. This is the dirty little secret known to most everyone in Washington, in the MSM, and in the legal community. It was purposely kept from the general public. Read here and here.

The CS series provides exhaustive details of Congress’ extensive knowledge & avoidance of the Natural Born Citizen clause of the Constitution. The mission of these legislators was simple … eliminate and destroy this clause that the Framers of our Republic felt so strongly about.

Make no mistake, electing an ineligible Obama was done with intentional malice leading to the destruction of the Constitution.

As law professor Peter J. Spiro made abundantly clear on the topic:

[…] “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.

In other words, it is perfectly alright to ignore those parts of the Constitution you do not agree with. Just ignore what you don’t like and if others agree with you and/or conspire with you, why bother with legislation to change it?  What we have is de facto change we can believe in! mmm,mmm,mmm!

Stepping back to see where we’ve come from and where we are to today is warranted.

I began asking questions about Obama’s citizenship in August 2008, here and here as did others. The questions were simple enough, if Obama’s father was Kenyan how could Obama meet the natural born citizenship requirement for POTUS? His own website clearly stated that Barack Obama Sr. was a British subject whose citizenship status was governed by The British Nationality Act of 1948. That same act governed the status of Obama Sr.’s children.

It seemed to be a simple question to me, one of extreme importance given the fact that if Obama was ineligible this country was embarked on electing a fraud. More importantly, as Dr. EdwinVieira detailed in October of 2008, if we elected Obama and he was found to be ineligible after the fact, every law passed, every appointment, etc, would be moot.

Certainly the MSM would jump to cover this story, right? Yet inexplicably, as we witnessed, they were either silent or they purposely mislead the public as to the true nature of the controversy. The question wasn’t whether Obama was a US citizen when he was elected, the question was and remains, what was Obama’s citizenship status on the day he was born; that is the primary question.

Legal analysts and JournoListers like Jeffery Toobin, lied and spread misinformation about the meaning of natural born citizenship as did other legal analysts on CNN. Jonathan (if you want a purebred, get a dog) Turley and John (the clause is pernicious) Dean both OPPONENTS of the natural born citizen clause were just as complicit remaining silent.

Then we had members of Congress, many who are attorneys themselves, who sat on committees bent on changing the NBC. Their intent was specific… obliterate the NBC clause and extend this very particular presidential requirement to virtually anyone that could chew gum and walk a straight line. They all remained silent, demonstrating once again that inactions can have consequences. As you will see in Constitutionally Speaking,Congress has been more active about subverting the NBC than even I had discovered. See here and here.

What we have seen in the last year and half is a multitude of public officials that either didn’t do their job (the New Jersey Secretary of State is the most egregious example. See Donofrio v. Wells), or who purposely lied, obfuscated, or ignored the underlying issues of Obama’s citizenship status. They put their politics and their grab for power ahead of our country.

Canada Free Press has reported on intimidation tactics used on the few reporters or media people willing to risk bringing the truth to light. We all know how Lou Dobbs was treated for merely questioning why Obama hasn’t produced records which verify his eligibility. It has been evident to anyone with half a brain that media personalities were instructed to avoid any discussion of the birth certificate issue at all costs.When Ann Coulter is saying “birthers” are crazy, someone is holding a very big stick, one few have the courage to mess with.

Also reported by J. B. Williams & CFP, are charges that high ranking Democratic party officials knew that Obama was not constitutionally eligible, that Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi knew that she was signing false statements when she was certifying his eligibility for the 50 states as required in the election process.

MCCAIN OBAMA

The truth is that in the 2008 election for POTUS neither John McCain or Barack Obama were eligible to hold the office of president. Donofrio was spot on with his law suit against the New Jersey Secretary of State.

Not only did she allow McCain and Obama’s names on the ballot without checking their citizenship status, but she also allowed Roger Calero, a man born in Nicaragua with a green card to to be placed on the ballot to run for President.

In the background, numerous law suits seeking information we are entitled to see have been ongoing and to no one’s surprise, under reported by the MSM. The sad reality is that not one case has been heard on its merits.

It started with Judge Surrick’s ruling in September of 2008. What Surrick said was that Berg’s case lacked standing and that voters weren’t personally harmed by a possibly ineligible Obama. Why? Because voters had a choice to vote for someone besides Obama in the national election. The problem with that argument is that if you were a Hillary supporter, your choice for president was taken away before the national election was held.

The truth is that the judiciary of this country has let its citizens down whether through cowardice or complicity, or ignorance. After all, what is left to say when Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg purposely chooses to ignore the NBC clause as it relates to her grandson? Is it any wonder that the Supreme Court declined to hear the Donofrio v Wells case?

Which leads us to today, Constitutionally Speaking, and part III in her series of subversion and malfeasance by the Congress of this United States which is slated for later today. We are promised even more explosive detailed information. Stay tuned!


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.




THE UNDERBELLY OF THE OBAMA CONSPIRACY… FIRST, THE DIRTY LITTLE SECRET

Here’s the dirty little secret. They have always known. Who are “they” of which I speak?

I am referring to the numerous groups of well known politicians (from both political parties), esteemed lawyers & Constitutional scholars, media personalities and other people in high places that have known from the beginning that Barack Obama was ineligible to hold the office of POTUS.

Barney Frank, Joe Scarborough, Maxine Waters, Jonathan Turley, John Dean of Watergate fame, and many others including Barack … all have known he was ineligible from the beginning. They have stayed silent or purposely obfuscated the truth because it serves their purpose; which is to by pass the Constitution and set a precedent that would then allow naturalized citizens (not the same as a natural born citizen) to run for office of President.

These are people who fancy themselves globalists. They find the natural born citizen clause to be anti-American(!), un-democratic, discriminatory, antiquated, a relic, pernicious.They who believe they are superior” and possess this ethereal worldly vision, diminish “we the people” who support adhering to Article II Section 1 Clause 5 of the Constitution … that imperfect document with flaws Obama ignores at every opportunity. These globalists describe people with contrary views as racists afraid of change and who are paranoid and xenophobic.

Contrary to what most people believe, efforts to by-pass the natural born citizen did not suddenly arise with Obama. He is not the first candidate whose citizenship status at the time of his birth has come into question. One need only go back to the 60’s to see efforts, to see the number of Congressional attempts to put men into power who were disqualified because of this Constitutional requirement. Four well known Republicans of the 60’s and 70’s, Barry Goldwater, Lowell Weiker, and George Romney, Henry Kissinger all had varying problems meeting the natural born citizen test.

In addition to Barney Frank’s attempt proposed amendment in 2000, Orrin Hatch brought forth the Arnold Amendment in 2003. More recently in 2005, two amendments to the Constitution of the United States were proposed.

Democrats Rep. John Conyers, Jr. and Rep.Brad Sherman sponsored H.J.RES.2 would require 20 years of citizenship for naturalized Americans to be eligible to hold the Office of President.

A similar resolution, H.J.RES.42, was introduced by Rep. Vic Snyder and cosponsored by Christopher Shays. It would require 35 years of citizenship for naturalized Americans to be eligible to hold the offices of President and Vice President.

Which bring us to the 2008 election. Was there a conspiracy to get Obama elected as this country’s first ineligible President as defined under Article II. Section 1, (A2 S1 C5 hereinafter) of the Constitution. You bet there was. Maybe conspiracy is too charged a term; a better term might be loosely formed confederation.

What we have is that beginning 2006, when the natural born citizen chatter subsided, a loosely formed confederation decided to steam roll a candidate, Barack Hussein Obama, whose popularity was so great that it was believed this “minor” detail concerning his citizenship status would be overlooked.

This might have worked had McCain won and became the President. Yes, McCain was ineligible to run despite the obvious attempts by Congress to gloss over this with Senate Resolution 511.

Think about it, for the most part, concern for the natural born citizen clause has been mostly “inside the beltway” and “in the weeds discourse” between these groups. To the casual observer or even the most avid political junkie, with the exception of an occasional editorial or an article in a legal publication or journal concern for the natural born citizen clause has flown under the radar. Who knew?

But there was a flaw. Obama’s inability to produce a single document verifying his eligibility as required in the Constitution was simply too big to ignore. Despite the MSM’s obvious heavy handed attempts to ridicule anyone questioning his eligibility and their constant commingling of the terms naturalized citizen with natural born citizens the story has refused to fade.

Obama remains a means to an end for this group of activists. The end game is simple. Eliminate the natural born citizen clause without a Constitutional amendment and anyone from any country could conceivably be elected to the most powerful position in the world having been naturalized and having lived in the US for 20 or more years.

That would mean Arnold Schwarzenegger, Arianna Huffington, Mel Martinez, Jennifer Granholm, Henry Kissinger, Andrew Sullivan, Madeleine Albright, all could run for POTUS and ignore a key component of natural born citizenship as a requirement to hold the most powerful position in the world!

Unfortunately, under this scenario and the laws of unintended consequences, in theory Vladimir Putin could conceivably run for POTUS if he moved to the US became a naturalized citizen and lived in Poughkeepsie, NY or any other town for a specified number of years.

Before you say that couldn’t happen, let me remind you that the Secretary of State in New Jersey allowed Roger Calero, an immigrant born in Nicaragua to place his name on the ballot for POTUS along with the equally ineligible John McCain and Barack Obama.
