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.

Tomorrow – Part Two in Their Own Words


OK, this is too funny and too silly even for the Obots in the O’white House.

Hat/tip to Repubx for noticing that the Dear One’s age on his MySpace page is listed as 52 and not 48…. wait let me get my calculator out and check.  OBAMA

Hmmm it says here in his book he was born in 1961(click, tap, click  sound calculator keys being depressed)hmmm if we subtract 1961 from 2009 or the year of our Dear One’s Ascension (click, click) Nope, he’s 48.

I mean really… what are they smoking in the White House? Who dreamed this one up; the same guy that thinks there are 52 states; or was it 57? No, no, no that’s ketchup! Speaking of ketchup anyone hear Kerry’s droning voice lately? Is that guy still alive?

(Opps, I got off point for minute.) I know it’s the guy that put the phony Obama birth certificate together the one that lists Obama’s father race as African? Guess this Mensa wannabe doesn’t know Africa is a continent, that African isn’t a race, and that in 1961 the operative descriptor would have been Negro.

Now why would this merit a second of my time and your time? Let’s try this out. If Obama were 52 that would mean when he was born, Hawaii was a territory and so in this bizarre scenario that would make him a natural born citizen. Right?

Wrong, DUMBASS (I’m channeling Jeff Dunham’s Walter). Using the Hawaii was a US territory theme puts Obama in the same problematic situation as McCain, Romney, and Goldwater … minus the British/Kenyan father of course! If I remember correctly, none of them were eligible to run for POTUS. Ya but, McCain ran for POTUS, and what about  Senate Resolution 511 didn’t the Congress declare McCain was a natural born citizen?

Well, Resolution 511 was an obvious attempt to by pass Article II Section 1 of the Constitution… and it wasn’t/isn’t legally binding. It it is equivalent of declaring everyone is Irish on St. Patrick’s Day. The truth is Congress and the legal community has been looking for ways to by-pass the natural born citizen clause for years.

There are scores of politicians and lawyers who think the clause should be changed, but rather than do the heavy lifting… that’s passing a Constitutional Amendment and that requires that three quarters of the states are in agreement with the change. The LA Times is on record as saying the the NBC clause should be amended. I would venture to say that this one of the reasons they refuse to report on Obama’s problems of ineligibility for POTUS.

Both Republicans and Democrats are guilty! One only has to look to as far back as 2004 when the Republicans were trying some slight of hand of their own so they could advance the career of Arnold my father was in the SS Schwarzenegger. BTW, did you know Arnold is a dual citizen? Hmmm, thought not.

If you want to look at guilty Democrats go back to 2001 and look at Barney Frank’s attempt to change the NBC clause with H.J.Res. 88. I’d look at it quickly before all traces are scrubbed.

Oh, before I forget. Did you know that Walter was going to run for President? Yes, that Walter. I say anyone that once described the letters in NBC Network as standing for “Nothing But Crap deserves my vote!


Does anyone think if Sarah Palin were Governor of California that the state would be facing sure bankruptcy?  I think not.  Why?  Because Palin is practical, that’s why.

California has the worst bond rating in the country and it appears that the Fed (to its credit) is not going to bail the state out. Bravo! That means taxpayers in states across the country, living in states that run efficiently, aren’t going to bail the bums out; and why should we.  California voters kicked Gray Davis out and replaced him with the Governator Schwarzenegger . . . showing once and for all that things really can go from bad to worse.  Don’t ask states that know how to make tough choices to bail states that don’t.

The real kicker in all of this is that California has the tools at hand to bail itself out, but not the political will.  California has a $15.4 billion dollar shortfall and could benefit with revenues starting at $100 million from the off shore drilling.  Things are so bad in Cal- e-fornia that Governor Schwarzenegger has just proposed new drilling  and allowing one lease.   Believe this . . opening one lease is controversial!

As detailed in California’s Capital by Greg Lucus:


Awarding the (one) lease would nullify a January ruling by the three-person State Lands Commission, which regulates drilling in the first three miles off the California coast.

The commission rejected the lease sought by the Plains Exploration and Production Company to drill in Tranquillon Ridge, offshore from Vandenberg Air Force Base near Lompoc on a 2 to 1 vote, despite support by environmental groups.

“I am concerned about setting a precedent in approving California’s first offshore oil lease in 40 years,” said State Controller John Chiang in defending his “no” vote on the commission, which has not approved an offshore oil lease since the 1969 Santa Barbara oil spill.

The only “aye” vote came from Schwarzenegger’s representative on the commission.

The GOP governor reiterated his long-standing opposition to offshore drilling in June 2008, breaking with then-President Bush and U.S. Senator John McCain, who called for lifting the ban.

“California’s coastline is an international treasure,” Schwarzenegger said at the time. “I do not support lifting this moratorium on new drilling off our coast.”

The state could be benefiting from the jobs, revenue, and royalties from opening up these off shore leases.  The country could be benefiting from increased domestic oil production and less reliance on imported oil.   But no, California would rather release prisoners, furlough teachers, cut budgets for police and fire departments.

Make no mistake about this.  I care about the air we breathe and the water drink, etc.; but I am a pragmatic environmentalist not an esoteric one.  I write another blog called Say No to Plastic that is addressing the enormous impact that our unnecessary use of plastic is causing in our oceans and on a world wide level.  We are talking about a huge environmental disaster of our making.   I invite you to go to the site and look at the issues and support our efforts.

While you are there, review the page that talks about working with business.  This approach separates us from every other environmental group in the country. Here’s the reason why.  Environmental groups that seek to advance their agenda usually forget there is a financial component/solution that has to be looked at.  Actions have the net effect of job loss for someone in the community where you live will face mighty opposition. If groups refuse to address the economic impact of their efforts or they are not addressing collaborative ways to solve the issues, they are skirting success!

All of which brings us back to Sarah Palin, the governor of state that is rich in oil reserves, a governor that was able to refund taxpayers with check for $1,200.00 each.  Her policies have and improved the lives of  Alaska’s citizens by allowing drilling. It is often overlooked, but Sarah is a small business owner who understands what it means to make payroll, and suffer the consequences of a poorly managed company.

What this country needs is more small business owners in politics, people with common sense that know you can’t spend a country out a bad economy by adding more debt.  Here’s something else the country needs . . . the recognition that few things in live are either black or white . . . that balance is what we should be striving for in all things political.


I don’t like things that are out of place, that stick out without a rational explanation for their being there. Michele Obama’s black & red dress with the prominent “X” in the front is an example of an”out of place” moment in time that makes no sense in the context of the situation .

The Kennedy relationship with Obama is another example. It never made sense to me. There was/is something slightly odd about it unless one steps back and looks at larger possibilities.

Princess Caroline’s announcement that she would like Hillary Clinton’s Senate seat got me thinking about this odd collection of characters, again. Teddy and Caroline dissing the Clinton’s and endorsing Obama always was unsettling. Then I found a connection with the Obama “natural born citizen” saga and a connection with Caroline’s first cousin, Maria Shriver, and her husband Governor Schwarzenegger.

Since bloggers, patriots, and a host of other citizens began their search for the truth about Obama’s citizenship we have been accused of holding Obama to a differnet set of standards. Not true.

In fact given the lack of coverage by the MSM, one would think that a candidate’s eligibility under the “natural born citizen” first came to light with Obama. Nothing could be further from truth. This has been an ongoing question for many, many candidates. Obama’s wasn’t the first candidate facing this problem nor will he be the last unless and until the Constitution is changed by amendment.

I would ask you to review these 4 exhibits and ask yourself this. If Obama is allowed to side step the Constitution and serve as POTUS what is to prevent Schwarzenegger from attempting to do the same thing?

Exhibit one – From an article in USA Today written in 2004

Should the Constitution be amended for Arnold?

Matthew Spalding, director of the Center for American Studies at the conservative-oriented Heritage Foundation, says the amendment’s prospects would “nosedive” if it were perceived to be designed to land Schwarzenegger in the Oval Office. “We don’t amend the Constitution to advance someone’s political career,” Spalding says.

Schwarzenegger faces an additional handicap, Spalding says: “You can’t have a United States president who is a dual citizen.”

Proposals to end the Constitution’s sole discrimination against the foreign-born have kicked around in Congress since the 1870s. But 26 proposed amendments have died in subcommittees.

Exhibit two – Place this comment under some people are different. Why? Leahy had no problem sponsoring a non-binding Senate resolution favoring McCain and by default Obama (who BTW helped sponsor the resolution) when it suited his political agenda.

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

Some senators are less enthusiastic. The ranking Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, Patrick Leahy of Vermont, has denounced the legislative attention to the issue, saying the Senate had more pressing matters.

Exhibit three – No Kennedy connection, right?

Veteran Democratic Senator Ted Kennedy has said he would support a constitutional amendment that would enable his niece’s foreign-born husband, California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, to potentially run for President, reports AFP from Washington.

Kennedy’s niece, former journalist and Kennedy heiress Maria Shriver, is married to one of America’s most famous foreign-born citizens.

Exhibit four – View the latest poll from WorldNet Daily. Take a real good look at the questions, the order of the questions, and place them into context with the Obama dual citizenship/ ineligible to be president Constitutional crisis we are facing.

Do you think Arnold Schwarzenegger should be eligible for president?

1. Yes, he’s a legal American citizen now. That’s all that matters
2. Yes, but only if the law is changed to allow foreign-born citizens to run
3. Yes, if dual citizenship is good enough for Obama, it’s good enough for Schwarzenegger
4. Yes, even though I’m not thrilled with the idea, the subversive Democrats need to be kept in check
5. Yes, since Arnold is actually a cyborg created by Cyberdyne Systems in California, he’s technically born in the USA
6. No, his accent is just too un-American
7. No, Arnold is a pretender, as he is showing his true left-leaning colors now in “Calleeforneea”
8. No, the question of national loyalty is the key reason at stake here
9. No, I don’t want anyone to skirt the Constitution
10..No, he is not a natural-born citizen of the United States. End of story

The rich and powerful live by a different set of rules, don’t they.
