OBAMA PASSPORT BREACH & BIRTH CERTIFICATE TIE INS – OLBERMANN CONNECTS THE DOTS

Keith Olbermann . . . bad actor and cartoon character is at it again! He called Senator Richard Shelby a traitor last week. Yes, a traitor, because Shelby had the temerity to answer a constituent’s question about Obama’s eligibility to hold the office of POTUS . Hat tip to a recent post on The Betrayal Blog which brought my attention to this. I stopped watching Olbermann & MSNBC months ago and would have missed this. Olbermann’s harangues and constant ravings having become so predictable, silly, and (worse still) boring! Why watch?

Which brings me to March ’08, when Olbermann & MSNBC devoted an entire hour of coverage to Obama’s passport breaches by contract workers at the State Department. Here’s a reminder of “Great Passport Firestorm” of 2008 for those who may have missed it.

At the time I thought the story was an odd one to devote so much time and attention to. If a plane slams into a building that’s “breaking news”, but this? Passport peeking? I thought the coverage at MSNBC verged on the bizarre. Someone looked at Obama’s passport information . . . really what was the big deal? Strange, indeed, to devote so much time to something, that on the surface appeared to be rather minor and of little note.

Remember, at time, the issues concerning Obama’s eligibility had not been raised. Those stories were on the horizon, months away from the initial passport story . In fact, my first post questioning Obama’s eligibility was related to Obama’s dual citizenship. This was later in the summer of ’08 when an article in the Rocky Mountain News first appeared. It mentioned BHO’s dual citizenship referenced back to 1963.

Now let’s fast forward to Olbermann and his assault on Senator Shelby.

How are these incidents ties together?

Well for starters, the answer to the question of “what’s the big deal” about looking at Obama’s passport has turned out to be a very big deal. Passport information includes date and place of birth . . . Hawaii or Kenya, for example. Passports information also details countries traveled to, travel dates and citizenship . . . US? Kenyan? Indonesian?

Suddenly the passport peeking is a very big deal if a person is perpetrating a hoax and knowingly running as an ineligible candidate for the office of President. Wanna bet Olbermann’s over the top, knee jerk reaction to the passport peeking was because Olbermann (and I would venture to say a host of others) always knew Obama was ineligible to run for POTUS.

The traitors among us do not include Senator Shelby . . . quite the contrary. Mr. Olbermann, you and everyone who has aided and assisted in bringing the faux President, the fraud Obama to the White House, you are the traitors and should be treated accordingly. Senator Clair Mc Caskill that includes you. The tip off? Olbermann’s over reaction and continued obfuscation of the truth as it relates to Obama’s citizenship. Olbermann has become a brazen liar and MSNBC is nothing less than Obama’s Pravda.

As an aside, I wonder who those two contract workers were who looked at Obama’s passport records? I sure as hell would love to talk to them and find out what was really in Obama’s records . . . the ones he continues to hide from the American people. Think there’s a way to find these two?

OBAMA’s CONTINUED ASSULT ON THE CONSTITUTION

Mike Lukovich, whose cartoons regularly appear in the Atlanta Journal Constitution, is one of my favorite political cartoonists. Most of the time, I’ve felt his positions about what effects this country have been spot on. Unfortunately, like most of the MSM, Lukovich drank the Kool-Aid and fell in love with the Usurper.

This cartoon was published just before the November election. The irony of Obama being handed a Constitution in tatters, brought on by the Bush Administration’s action cannot be over stated, given the fact that Obama’s disregard of our Republic’s most sacred document, the U.S. Constitution, is regularly ignored. Where Lukovich sees Obama in a heroic light, those of us who have opposed Obama’s politics and policies see little more than a fraud.

Obama has been described as an egomaniac and a pathetic narcissistic megalomaniac who should never have been allowed to enter the White House.

image-12

Fact . . . Obama has been elected selected (by the Dean and the other despicable dirty Democrats) to hold office as the first knowingly ineligible candidate to run for the office of POTUS. His own website proudly proclaimed his dual citizenship at the time of birth. One must be a natural born citizen to hold office, born of two parents both of whom are U.S. citizens. Obama was not.

Fact . . . he is the only “President” who has refused to produce the most basic information concerning his background that includes his college records, his original vault copy of his birth certificate (under seal), health records, thesis, billing and client records, etc, etc, etc. while proclaiming to aspire to an open and transparent presidency.

Fact . . . Obama’s teams of lawyers continue to fight toothe and nail to keep this information suppressed. They are now looking to sanction those persons looking to uncover the truth. Most recently, a California suit has been filed against Occidential College to have the college produce Obama’s records while he was in attendence.

Why is this information so important? Because the information ” could reveal on what name Obama attended classes at Occidental and whether he attended on scholarship money intended for foreign students ” as reported by Bob Unruh WorldNetDaily:

A high-powered team of Los Angeles attorneys representing President Obama in his effort to keep his birth certificate, college records and passport documents concealed from the public has suggested there should be “monetary sanctions” against a lawyer whose clients have brought a complaint alleging Obama doesn’t qualify for the Oval Office under the Constitution’s demand for a “natural born” citizen in that post.

Fact . . . Obama has turned his back on so many of his campaign promises for change, that it’s hard to keep track. Two of the most recent examples of his back-tracking include allowing lobbyists to serve in his administration and his decision to keep the Bush policy on rendition. Of late his plea for bi-partisanship has changed into, “We won, so get over it!” Ah, yes, Change we Can Believe In.

Fact . . . this isn’t the first time the Usurper has used intimidation. One need only go back to the 2008 campaign and Obama’s Truth Squads in Missouri to see what the Obama team thinks of the Constitution and free speech (and thought)! Governor Matt Blunt of Missouri said:

What Senator Obama and his helpers are doing is scandalous beyond words, the party that claims to be the party of Thomas Jefferson is abusing the justice system and offices of public trust to silence political criticism with threats of prosecution and criminal punishment.

Fact . . . in less than a month in office, Obama has taken steps to tear this country apart using the financial crisis as a reason to stir further chaos. The Obama stimulus plan is a recipe for disaster and will bring this country to its knees, if it is passed.

It is beyond insane for Obama to demand that a $1.5 trillion dollar bill be on his desk by February 16th. It is insanity that anyone in Congress to consider voting for a 787 page bill that isn’t available for review and consideration.

Fact . . . this country and all of its citizens remain in jeopardy until the Usurper is driven from office.

TO THE INTERNATIONAL MEDIA – A PRETEND PRESIDENT OBAMA PLACES THE CITIZENS OF THE WORLD IN PERIL

Memo: To the International Media

Re: Constitutional Crisis/President Elect Obama not Eligible to Serve as United States President

Date: January 14, 2009

In one week, Barack Obama will place his hand on the Lincoln bible to be sworn in as the 44th President of the United States (POTUS). When he places his hand on the Lincoln bible and swears to uphold the Constitution of the United States he may knowingly be committing fraud and usurping the most powerful office in the world.

The United States of America is faced with a Constitutional crisis of gigantic proportions; one that remains avoidable if Obama would simply release the growing list of documents that would verify that he indeed is a natural born citizen, a requirement for office of POTUS under the U.S. Constitution. Most of the people in our country and the world do not know what is happening because the mainstream media in our country has failed to do their jobs. The MSM have steadfastly refused to investigate any story that possibly reflects in a negative manner on Obama’s candidacy and his eligibility under the Constitution.

Outlets one would think would at least give the story a cursory glance like FOX News and the Drudge Report have remained conspicuously silent. The cable networks, venerable institutions like the New York Times and the Washington Post having been playing a game of “if we don’t report it, it doesn’t exist!”

obamacolblockkey3Our Constitution requires that any person running for the office of president meet three qualifications; he/she must be at least 35 years of age, must live in the United States for at least 14 years and be a natural-born citizen. Mr. Obama has refused to provide any information that verifies he meets this requirement. In fact, it has been reported that Obama and his legal teams have spent close to one million dollars to keep his birth certificate and the truth hidden. A partial list of hidden Obama documents include; a vault copy of his birth certificate (under seal in Hawaii), college records, copy of his college thesis, records of his clients when practicing law in Illinois, explanation of his travel to Indonesia when Americans were not allowed to travel there, etc.

Mr. Obama’s own website states he was born with dual citizenship. That is an automatic disqualification. Actually, his citizenship was determined by his father who was Kenyon and a British citizen, since his mother was 17 (and under age) her citizenship was moot. Further complicating the situation is Obama’s step-father was Indonesian. The evidence (that hasn’t been scrubbed from the Internet) shows that Obama went to school in Indonesia at a time when only Indonesian citizens were allowed this privilege and further that Obama traveled to Indonesia in the 80’s when American citizens were not allowed to travel to this country. What this means is that under this story of who Obama’s birth father was, he is not a “natural born citizen” as defined by our Constitution (born on U.S. soil of two parents both of whom are U.S. citizens) and therefore ineligible to hold the office of POTUS.

The reason why you should care should be self-evident. It has been said that when American catches a cold the rest of the world should watch out for pneumonia. The world wide financial recession is a case in point. If it is discovered that Mr. Obama was never eligible to run and hold the office of POTUS we, our country and the interconnected world, will be thrown in a state of disorder and turmoil. That is because any law, any treaty, any action taken under the Obama administration would be illegal. For a further explanation see Dr. Edwin Vieira detailed analysis.

There are (over 17) lawsuits that have already been brought across the country including several before the Supreme Court . . . all dismissed thus far on legal issues of “standing” and the like, but not on the merits of the lawsuits! See Donofrio v Wells, Berg v Obama for the most prominent lawsuits.

Let me point out that while the MSM in this country have abdicated its responsibility to voters here and Obama supporters abroad, the blogs on the Internet have been tracking this for months. Those blogging are not on the fringes or carry any animus towards Obama. There are thousands and thousands of us who love our country and are simply asking for the truth. We are moderates, former Obama supporters, conservatives, independents, Democrats, Republicans, and persons of every stripe who believe in placing our country before any individual man or party.

Finally, it should be noted that there have been a few stories written by sources outside the U.S. in Canada and elsewhere asking about Obama’s eligibility. The most disturbing is a recent article that appeared in Pravda RU which detailed Obama’s problems and which called him an outright fraud and which leads me to the most serious consideration. It is an embarrassment that Pravda is covering what our own media has purposely ignored.

Quoting from Dr. Vieira:

Fifth, as nothing but an usurper (if he becomes one), Obama will have no conceivable authority “to make Treaties”, or to “nominate, and * * * appoint Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls, Judges of the Supreme Court, and all other Officers of the United States, whose Appointments are not * * * otherwise provided for [in the Constitution]” (Article II, Section 2, Clause 2). And therefore any “Treaties” or “nominat[ions], and * * * appoint[ments]” he purports to “make” will be void ab initio, no matter what the Senate does, because the Senate can neither authorize an usurper to take such actions in the first place, nor thereafter ratify them.

Sixth, and perhaps most importantly, Congress can pass no law while an usurper pretends to occupy “the Office of President.” The Constitution provides that “[e]very Bill which shall have passed the House of Representatives and the Senate, shall, before it become a Law, be presented to the President of the United States” (Article I, Section 7, Clause 2). Not to an usurper posturing as “the President of the United States,” but to the true and rightful President. If no such true and rightful President occupies the White House, no “Bill” will or can, “before it become a Law, be presented to [him].” If no “Bill” is so presented, no “Bill” will or can become a “Law.” And any purported “Law” that the usurper “approve[s]” and “sign[s],” or that Congress passes over the usurper’s “Objections,” will be a nullity. Thus, if Obama deceitfully “enters office” as an usurper, Congress will be rendered effectively impotent for as long as it acquiesces in his pretenses as “President.”

If Pravda RU is calling Obama a fraud before his inauguration, how long before enemies of this country figure out this can be used as a reason not to cooperate with the U.S. or sign a treaty, or do anything that moves negotiations forward on any front because an illegally elected/ineligible Obama’s actions would be null and void . . . unenforceable . . . worthless. How long before Iran, or Hamas, or Russia, for that matter, figures this out and refuses to deal with the U.S.because of the Pretend President?

All of our institutions, have let us down. We are all in peril until this has been straightened out!

OBAMA, MALCOLM X, and MICHELLE’S RED & BLACK DRESS

I continue to be surprised by what fires people’s imaginations and passions. I have blogged about a wide variety of issues and topics, some serious, some not so much. The post that continues to draw the most interest is the one on Michelle Obama’s decision to wear that red & black dress with the X in the front … the decision to dress her entire family in those colors the night Barack won the 2008 election for president. You can read about it here.

My visceral reaction to the pictures each and every time I view them has not abated when seen through the prism of rebellion or defiance. But what if there was another way of viewing these pictures of the Obama’s all dressed up in red and black? What if the garb worn by the Obama’s was a silent tribute to Barack’s real father, Malcolm X?

I know anyone that has followed this blog and my positions on BHO’s ineligibility to hold the office of POTUS will find the following to be surprising. If the truth be known, I would be relieved to find out Obama’s real father is Malcolm X. Why? Because the alternative is many times worse.

Having a fraud become president is unthinkable. Having a man who is knowingly ineligible to hold the office because he never met the eligibility requirements as detailed in the Constitution will harm this country in ways that cannot tolerated. The consequences are far reaching and potentially devastating.

The evidence against his being eligible to hold the office of POTUS continues to accumulate on a daily basis. Barack Hussein Obama, aka Barry Soetoro, aka Barry Dunham is not a “natural born citizen” regardless if he was born in Hawaii (as he alleges) or he was born in Kenya which multiple lawsuits contend and which his paternal grandmother say is the truth.

The story Team Obama continues to foist on the world is that his father, Barack Hussein Obama Sr., was a Kenyan. His father was also British citizen thus making Barry a British citizen as well, because his citizenship would have been determined by the father’s nationality. Since Barack’s mother was 17 and underage at the time of his birth, her nationality was moot. Like it or not, that was the law of the land in 1961. Even if his mother’s age could be discounted, because Barack would have held a dual citizenship at the time of birth, he would still be ineligible. Complicating all of this, is his mother’s second marriage to Lolo Soetoro and Barack’s adoption by his step-father. Lolo was Indonesian; now we’ve got yet a third country that impacts on Barry’s citizenship.

What if this entire story isn’t true and what does this have to do with Michelle Obama’s red & black dress, the one she worn in Grant Park the night Barack became the President Elect? Well, plenty if I’m right.

The supreme irony is that if Malcolm X is Obama’s father then Obama meets the eligibility requirements of the Constitution! Malcolm X was a natural born citizen thus making Barack (Barry?) a natural born citizen. The worst case scenario is that if Barack were born in Kenya he would face (essentially) the same issues that John McCain faced! But back to Michelle’s red & black dress.

red-black


I know I am not the first to suggest that Obama’s father may be Malcolm X. This connection has been brought up before at Atlas Shrugs, Oil for Immigration, and on Polarik’s site using (as best I can determine) information that originated with Israel Insider. Other than idle curiosity, there hasn’t been much else to tie Obama to Malcolm. But then we’ve got that image of Obama’s in Grant Park, the red and black dress and that X that hits you between the eyes . . . an insult to the senses because the dress is so entirely out of place. It hard not to shout, “America’s next First Family shouldn’t be dressed these colors of defiance! Where are the various shades of red, white, and blue?”

Then suddenly it smacks you in the face . . . that X is for Malcolm. That X on the front of Michelle’s dress and those colors are for Malcolm. What other reason can there be? Sudden bad taste or a horrendous lack of sensitivity to the historical significance of the colors chosen for the very first photos of the Obama’s? In a campaign this carefully orchestrated and staged with the deliberate associations to the Kennedy’s how does it suddenly become feasible that a faux pas of this magnitude would be allowed?

shapeimage_1

Let’s cobble a few more interesting notes about Malcolm’s name.

In 1952, after he was released from prison, Malcolm changed his last name from Little toX, a designation that denotes “a certain mystery, a certain possibility of power in the eyes of one’s peers and one’s enemies …The ‘X’; announced what you had been and what you had become: Ex-smoker, Ex-drinker, Ex-Christian, Ex-slave.” and is also intended as a rejection of slave names.


X is also a brand that many slaves received on their upper arms. Though likely the most famous Black Muslim to change his name to X, Malcolm was one of many who eventually adopted this practice.

He was tall and handsome and when he walked into a room, he took it over. These things were important. And when he spoke, he could talk our talk in a way that made people understand right off.” Remind you of anyone? Barack, perhaps?

_obamax-763738

obamax_5-785893obamax_1-771789


If you are under 30 you probably have very little idea who Malcolm X was. For more complete understanding of his life see additional video here.

Make no mistake the 60’s were a violent time. The black revolution was beginning . . . this was a time of conflict where most black leaders were looked at in a negative manner. Malcolm X, although very controversial, was not an extremist like Farrakhan was and remains to this day. Malcolm could rightly be called an extremist initially, but he came to believe that the races could live and work together.

Malcolm left the Nation of Islam as a matter of principle. It cost him his life.

Like many of us who change and grow into maturity, Malcolm at the end of his life was much different than the Malcolm of his youth. During this time, Malcolm became a guest of Muhammed Faisal (son of then Prince Faisal), and Malcolm made a pilgrimage to Mecca, an event that changed his life. He believed, through Muslim teachings, that all racial barriers could be overcome.

Malcolm returned from Mecca a Sunni Muslim, a changed man. He also bore a new name, El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz. This is from Lessons from Malcolm X

Below is an excerpt of a powerful speech Malcolm gave upon his return:

“Human rights are something you were born with?.In the past, yes I have made sweeping indictments of all white people. I will never be guilty of that again (emphasis mine) as I know now that some white people are truly sincere, that some truly are capable of being brotherly toward a black man…Since I learned the truth in Mecca, my dearest friends have come to include all kinds, Christians, Jews, Buddhists, Hindus, Agnostics, even Atheists My friends today are black, brown, red, yellow and white While in Mecca, for the first time in my life, I could call a man with blond hair and blue eyes my brother.”

Ok, so what’s the truth? Is Malcolm X or Barack Hussein Obama Sr. BHO’s father? I don’t know. Is Barack really a Muslim . . . the Freudian slip with George Stephanopoulos indicates he is. I really don’t know. There is a mountain of compelling evidence that supports several positions on Barack’s birth father and his religion.

Here’s what I do know. Stanley Ann Dunham was a complicated woman, a woman with a past more interesting than what we’ve been led to believe, regardless who Barack’s father really is. This is a family whose lives are clothed in secrets.

Something else I know is that this is a tragedy of epic proportions if Malcolm X really was BHO’s father. Imagine having to deny your real identity on a daily basis because somewhere along a line a decision was made that it was better to be known as the “son” of Barack Obama Sr. than to acknowledge that you are the son of Malcolm X.

In the desire to become president, was this denial born out of expediency because Malcolm X was a Muslim. America might tolerate a multi-cultural man as president . . . but after 9/11 does anyone think a Muslim would have any chance at the office? Again, I don’t know. I do know that the truth has a way of always coming out . . . that secrets kept in the dark have a way of finding the light of day.

THE OBAMA CONSPIRACY – PART 2 – OF IGNORANCE & ARROGANCE

Ignorant (meaning unlettered, uneducated, uninformed, having a lack of knowledge) and arrogant ( meaning disdainful, condescending, patronizing) two unflattering words that demonstrate how we have arrived at a point in our nation’s history where we are weeks away from watching a man, ineligible to hold the office of POTUS as defined by the requirements of the Constitution, take the reigns of power of the most powerful nation on earth.

We have watched as millions have put the welfare on one man ahead of their country and ahead of their own self-interests. How did we get here?

In less than a month, Barack Hussein Obama, a man many define as a fraud and a charlatan, will place his hand on the Lincoln Bible and swear to uphold the Constitution of the United States. This is a statement bristling with irony.

Sadly, the following excerpt typifies the prevailing attitude of large numbers of people in this country. These are shocking words from a blogger, one who clearly is educated, articulate, and has command of the English language.

At the same time this writer is ignorant of how our system of government works, ignorant of the importance of our Constitution, of his/or her place in a democratic Republic. (No Virginia, the US is not a democracy . . . it is a Republic!)

If the Constitution were truly the Law of the Land, certainly a definition of “natural born citizen” would have been offered by the Supreme Court or the Congress by now. Or there would have been a law passed by the Congress that no candidates could run for president unless first vetted for eligibility according to Article II, Section 1, Clause 5. Of course, any American with a brain knows that we no longer live under rule of the Constitution, hence all of this kerfuffle over where Barack Obama was “really” born matters not one wit.

Bet you didn’t know we no longer live under the rule of the Constitution! Clearly this writer is equally arrogant of the importance of abiding by the Constitution and lives with the mistaken impression that our Constitution is no longer relevant and can be ignored at will!

BTW, while we’re at it, I suggest you read the entire post and notice how the writer considers that having qualifications for the office of president is the equivalent of discrimination! What planet do you suppose one lives on to hold these kinds of ideas? Imagine, our Founding Fathers thought we should have minimum qualifications to be president and one of those qualifications was to be a natural born citizen so that there would never be a question about loyalty to the citizens of this nation? Imagine!

Equally shocking is the fact that this attitude is shared not only by Obama supporters but a legion of politicians, lawmakers, the MSM, and the courts. All have turned their backs on the Constitution and allowed this country to drift into a state of lawlessness.

It has become fashionable to ignore that with which you disagree, or diminish its importance, and live in a pretend world where we get to pick and choose the laws we will follow. Don’t like or understand what it means to be a “natural born citizen” and its import as it relates to the minimal qualifications for POTUS, as defined by the Framers of the Constitution? Ignore it, pretend there are no long term consequences to be suffered.

Above all else, don’t contemplate what it means once one ineligible candidate is allowed to illegally take office. Where do we apply the brakes? How about Arnold Schwarzenegger as our next president? He’s not a “natural born citizen” and acknowledges it. But hey, New Jersey has already allowed Socialist Workers Party candidate Roger Calero to run in the ’08 presidential election even though he was born in Nicaragua.

What has happened to our Republic? What has happened to our collective common sense? Many voices are asking the same pointed questions as we have watched a “star struck” media abdicate its responsibilities to the voters of the country, giving Obama a pass on a multitude of relevant questions and background checks, while devastating his opponents. We have seen the MSM (The New York Times, MSNBC, & CNN in particular) behaving as if their roles in the 2008 election were to help elect Obama.

At the same time we’ve witnessed politicians assisting Obama’s campaign in unimaginable ways that include managing the “Truth Squads” in Missouri. The Senate passed a non-binding resolution in Congress as a way to side step the issue of Article II Section 1 of the Constitution. BTW, non-binding resolutions are not law. They are essentially statements in support of a particular position that’s all.

As I said in Part I, the Obama Conspiracy evolved out of circumstances and happenstance. Not that Obama wasn’t seriously seeking the office, he was. The only way to run for the office of POTUS was to conceal his past, obfuscating the truth. Why else make sure that every record concerning his parents, his background, birth records, schooling, education records etc. be sanitized or scrubbed? It has been reported that Obama has spent close to one million dollars with three law firms to make sure his true identity remains hidden from the public.

Although this video references the Donofrio v Wells suit. It should be noted that there is continued Supreme Court action scheduled for January ’09.

Think I’ve been too tough on the voters, politicians, and the MSM that has brought us to this Constitutional crisis? Think again. Take the following American Civics literacy test. It can be found here


The exam questions covered American history, the workings of the US government and economics. The results of many of those who took the civics test are shocking giving you a look at why so many can vote for a fraudulent candidate Obama and not recognize the consequences.

US officials flunk test of American history, economics, civics

WASHINGTON (AFP) – US elected officials scored abysmally on a test measuring their civic knowledge, with an average grade of just 44 percent, the group that organized the exam said Thursday.

Ordinary citizens did not fare much better, scoring just 49 percent correct on the 33 exam questions compiled by the Intercollegiate Studies Institute (ISI).

“It is disturbing enough that the general public failed ISI’s civic literacy test, but when you consider the even more dismal scores of elected officials, you have to be concerned,” said Josiah Bunting, chairman of the National Civic Literacy Board at ISI.

“How can political leaders make informed decisions if they don’t understand the American experience?” he added.

The exam questions covered American history, the workings of the US government and economics.

Among the questions asked of some 2,500 people who were randomly selected to take the test, including “self-identified elected officials,” was one which asked respondents to “name two countries that were our enemies during World War II.”

(Some respondents chose Canada and Mexico as our enemies during WWII! If you think that’s bad, how about JKF freed the slaves!)

For the record, I’ve taken the civics quiz for the last three months, scoring 51 out of 60 correctly — 85.00 % in October, 29 out of 33 correctly — 87.88 % in November, and 32 out of 33 correctly — 96.97 % in December.

I was unhappy with my October score until I found out that students at Harvard, Princeton, and Yale were only able to answer 69% of the questions on this test correctly! The best and brightest of the next generation only able to answer 69% of the questions correctly!

How can we expect voters to behave in a rational manner if they have no understanding of how our government works? How can we expect our politicians and lawmakers to act in the best interests of our country when they have an ever poorer understanding of our system of government? How, indeed!

DONOFRIO v. WELLS – THE ONGOING CENSORSHIP ATTACKS

What is it that they have to fear?

Who am I referring to when I say “they”? I’m talking about the Obama’s thugs that hacked into Leo Donforio’s original site at at blogtext.org 5 days ago. His blog, Natural Born CItizen, went down as Leo was discussing his case Donofrio v Wells on Plains Radio. This case is scheduled for a closed conference between the Justices of the Supreme Court on December 5th. At that time, should the Justices agree, full arguments will begin in front of the court that will determine if Barack Hussein Obama was ever eligible to run for the office of POTUS.

In Leo’s own words:

Yesterday, Nov. 21 2008, my previous blog – blogtext.org/naturalborncitizen – was taken down as was the entire blogtext.org network.

I have relocated here to Blogger.com. Mirror sites containing the exact content have been (or will be shortly) set up. Everybody is hereby authorized to mirror the contents of this blog.

Today I visited the new site at http://thenaturalborncitizen.blogspot.com and read a cautionary message that said in effect “enter at your own risk.” Why would this be necessary . . . it’s just a blog, right? Right! I am directing people to Leo’s newest site so they can view the court documents, and an array of posts, videos, etc. that pertain to this case.

Let me make a couple of quick points:

  1. People censor that which they fear . . . in this case, the truth about Obama’s eligibility.
  2. There are numerous mirror sites that will continue to contain the information about Donofrio v. Wells, even if Leo’s newest site, goes down again.
  3. To those who keep messing with the site, videos, etc. Every incursion and attempt to stop discussion and information dissemination is further proof that Leo and a host of others who have lawsuits pending are on the right track.

Here’s another video asking for Obama to produce his birth certificate. The Donofrio suit is not anchored to the birth certificate issue, but to Barack’s dual citizenship at birth. The question remains . . . why not just produce the documents?

OBAMA WILL VIOLATE THE CONSTITUTION IF HE APPOINTS HILLARY SECRETARY OF STATE

(H/T) OIL FOR IMMIGRATION

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Well, how’s this grab you? It seems MSNBC has suddenly found out that there is a document that we live under called the Constitution. Ah, gives me faith in humanity once again, because I was beginning to think we were living in a Banana Republic. With apologies to Banana Republics world wide, of course!

After all, the gang at MCNBC thinks Bush should leave office NOW so that our “Dear Leader” can ascend to the thrown post haste. (opps, I meant throne, it was the election that was thrown!) Never mind that pesky problem of Obama’s ineligibility due to his having been born a dual citizen.

Memo to those fine folks at MSNBC who think they can pick and choose those parts of the Constitution they like and toss out or disregard the parts they don’t like… read a little further in the Constitution to Article II Section 1. Your buddy, Obama, is in deep sneakers if the Supremes decide to hear the the Donofrio v Wells case. They are our last hope against the barbarians trying to tear our Republic apart!

You heard it for yourself in the video. Hillary has a problem being named to the post of Secretary of State because of that pesky old Constitution, you know, the document that is supposed to make us a people and a nation of laws . . . what a quaint concept!

According to Michael Stokes Paulson, a Law Professor who has written on the application of the Emoluments Clause in the past, he says this regarding the Clinton appointment:

[…] The Emoluments Clause of Article I, section 6 provides “No Senator or Representative shall, during the Time for which he was elected, be appointed to any civil Office under the Authority of the United States, which shall have been created, or the Emoluments whereof shall have been encreased during such time.” As I understand it, President Bush’s executive order from earlier this year “increased” the “Emoluments” (salary) of the office of Secretary of State. Last I checked, Hillary Clinton was an elected Senator from New York at the time. Were she to be appointed to the civil Office of Secretary of State, she would be being appointed to an office for which “the Emoluments whereof shall have been increased” during the time for which she was elected to serve as Senator. The plain language of the Emoluments Clause would thus appear to bar her appointment … if the Constitution is taken seriously (which it more than occasionally isn’t on these matters, of course).

[…] Unless one views the Constitution’s rules as rules that may be dispensed with when inconvenient; or as not really stating rules at all (but “standards” or “principles” to be viewed at more-convenient levels of generality); or as not applicable where a lawsuit might not be brought; or as not applicable to Democratic administrations, then the plain linguistic meaning of this chunk of constitutional text forbids the appointment of Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State.

Listen to entire video, particularly towards the end when Pete Willams says Obama will disregard the Constitution.

Well, why shouldn’t he disregard this part of the Constitution, as well. After all, isn’t BHO paying attorneys $1,000 an hour (at 3 law firms) to withhold corroborating documents which prove his eligibility to hold the office of POTUS. This obfuscation is because Obama reveres the Constitution, right? Right? (For the dullards out there, that last statement was dripping in sarcasm!)

SO I say, why have a Constitution when our law makers think the laws/rules don’t apply to them? BTW, if you missed it, in a recent national survey of our country’s lawmakers, the majority demonstrated that they are as ignorant about civics and how our government works as the Obama voters. When recently tested, only 44% could pass a government civics test! 44%! And I thought Senator Claire McCaskill was only corrupt . . . guess she’s dumb and stupid, as well.

BTW, don’t anyone write and tell me to be nice. This is my blog and I can rant if I want to. Hey, isn’t that a song?
