Eligibility Movement About Love Not Hate: Day 43 – March2, 2009

March 2, 2009

….that’s Love as in Love of Country and Reverence for Our Constitution, NOT Hatred for Barack Obama. The Left is attempting to smear those concerned about Obama’s eligibility as irrational conspiracy theorists. They are So Wrong! The Issue is not going away; Today’s AOL and Politico Headline the story…

AOL News: The Birthers Continue to Hound Obama
The Politico: Culture of Conspiracy. The Birthers

At The Politico Ben Smith writes:

Out of the gaze of the mainstream and even the conservative media is a flourishing culture of advocates, theorists and lawyers, all devoted to proving that Barack Obama isn’t eligible to be president of the United States…..The challenges to Obama’s eligibility have no grounding in evidence. Courts across the country have summarily rejected the movement’s theory — that Obama can’t be a citizen because his father wasn’t —as a misreading of U.S. law; and Hawaii officials, along with contemporary birth announcements, affirm that Obama was in fact born in Honolulu in 1961.

The issue is hardly out of the gaze of the mainstream…media, it has been in plain sight all along. But the mainstream, and most of the conservative, media have chosen to ignore the most severe constitutional crisis since the Civil War. We must mark 2008 as the year journalism in the United States died. The press has become, in the words of Leo Donofrio, The Propaganda Ponies of the Fourth Estate.

At the time of his birth, Obama was a British/Kenyan citizen by descent of his father. Because I pointed out pesky international laws which governed his citizenship due to the fact that a father has every legal right in the world to have the laws of his nation apply to his son, I have been labeled a conspiracy freakoid of nature.

Never mind that I included demands for Panama John McCain and the Nicaraguan born Roger Calero to also be removed from our ballots. No, they don’t want to talk about that do they – because it would blow the “he’s just another Obama hater” mantra clear out of play. (see Natural Born Citizen)

So much for the mainstream media.Most of the conservative media will not touch the eligibility issue because they fear being smeared as kooks and nut cases. Some Republicans are so desperate to find a suitable candidate to revive the party’s fortunes that they wish the natural born citizen requirement would go away so they can nominate a non natural born citizen; i.e. Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal; born of Indian immigrant parents who naturalized after his birth. Governor Schwarzenegger, who would love to be President, at least had the good sense to acknowledge that he is not a natural born citizen and therefore not eligible unless, and until, a constitutional amendment is passed negating the natural born citizen requirement of our Presidents.

The eligibility issue did come up, albeit briefly, at the past weekend’s CPAC gathering in Washington. Cliff Kincaid of Accuracy in Media:

Judging by the applause, a large portion of the audience was not outraged by the remarks.

No person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President...and the President before taking office swears the following oath…“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.” (U.S.Constitution, Article II, Section 2)

The Alleged Usurper by Alan Keyes: Day 34 – Feb 22, ’09

February 22, 2009

Three time Presidential candidate Alan Keyes gets right to the point in this video calling Barack Obama “a radical communist, an abomination, an alleged usurper who is occupying that office without the constitutional authority to do so….who is going to destroy this country…we are either going to stop him or the United States is going to cease to exist…”

A dispatch from Cullman, Alabama:

..(A) local resident asked Alabama Senator Richard] Shelby if there was any truth to a rumor that appeared during the presidential campaign concerning Obama’s U.S. citizenship, or lack thereof.
“Well his father was Kenyan and they said he was born in Hawaii, but I haven’t seen any birth certificate,” Shelby said. “You have to be born in America to be president.”

Well, he had many a chance to speak out but, like so many others who know, he did not. (see, Those Who Know, Day 28)

Eligibility Issue Ignored by Those Who Know: Day 28 – Feb 16, 2009

February 19, 2009

Who else knows about the Barack Obama ineligibility besides Obama himself? There are many influential people in media and politics who know, or at least believe that Obama is not constitutionally qualified for President. These people, and I will name a few, will not touch the issue: The list most prominently features Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity,Mark Levin, Ron Paul, and possibly the Clintons. Why?

Let’s start with Obama who knew, as a self-professed constitutional scholar that he was not eligible. His own campaign website acknowledged his dual citizenship. Then, there are the stories about his Indonesian citizenship:

An investigation into Indonesian citizenship law and a review of Obama’s biography and travels suggest the Illinois senator at one point may have been a citizen of Indonesia. That would not necessarily disqualify Obama to run for president, but it could raise loyalty concerns.

As for Limbaugh, Hannity, and others J.R.Dieckmann at Renew America writes:

… talk radio commentators are afraid to talk about it. Rush Limbaugh stated that he is not sure if it “passes the smell test,” and Sean Hannity has not even mentioned it as far as I know except when a caller brought it up. Hannity remarked that he didn’t know enough about it and moved to another topic.

Hannity may be restricted by his bosses, but Rush is the CEO of his own broadcasting network and has nothing to fear except the possible loss of some of his franchise radio stations across the country which carry his show. Rush is known for facing down any amount of political pressure or politician so he must have his own reasons for not giving it credibility on the air. Privately, I suspect Limbaugh takes this matter very seriously but he has two relatives on the bench; Stephen N. Limbaugh, Sr., Stephen N. Limbaugh, Jr. and other friends who may have advised him to avoid the subject until the issue is officially in the hands of the courts.

Turning to Congressman Ron Paul (R-TX) we find an in depth article about his reluctance to speak out at Citizen Wells blog:

There are several reasons why Obama is not eligible to be president.
However, most if not all congressmen were aware of numerous lawsuits
challenging Obama’s eligibility beginning with Philip Berg’s on
August 21, 2008. Many mistakenly stated that the lawsuits were
dismissed for lack of merit. That is patently false. However, since
the congressmen were aware of the lawsuits, they were also aware
that obama had employed an army of attorneys and spent enormous
amounts of resources to avoid proving that he was eligible.

That is the real smoking gun.

This is the reason that minimally, Congress should have demanded that
Obama prove that he was qualified. A single congressman could have
initiated this query before or when Congress convened to certify the
Electoral votes.

Not a single congressman stepped forward.

Congressman Ron Paul knew that there were serious issues surrounding
Obama’s eligibility. Congressman Ron Paul, who speaks of upholding
the US Constitution.

Late in December of 2008, Congressman Paul was asked if he would
challenge the Electoral votes in Congress. Here is his response:

“If I did that, I would be laughed out of Congress.”

I believe Congressman Paul’s response is typical of the position
of the entire Congress. However, Mr. Paul, we expected more from
you.

Ron Paul on Patriotism

We conclude with a quote for the day; this one from Citizen Wells on Twitter:

“Technically Obama will not have to be impeached since he will not be president.

Standard prosecution should suffice.”

Obama Not the First Usurper: Day 24 – February 12, 2009

February 12, 2009

The first pretender (usurper) to the U.S. Presidency was the ineligible Chester A. Arthur who occupied the office from September 19, 1881 until March 4, 1885. The history of Arthur’s usurpation is somewhat shrouded in mystery but some very recent research has shed some new light on that usurpation. We republish here “The Liar Who Became President” which originally appeared at Steady Habits December 7, 2008.

The Liar Who Became President…

Once upon a time there was a politically ambitious man who told many lies about himself and his family. We shall call him Mr. X. During one of his early political campaigns a political enemy circulated rumors that Mr. X was born in a foreign country and therefore ineligible for high elective office. Mr. X denied the charge saying his father was a British subject but that he (X) was born here.

Mr. X claimed that his mother had always lived in the U.S. which was untrue as she had lived in another country with her husband and had (a child) there. Mr. X realized early on that he was not a “natural born citizen” because he knew that he was born before his father was naturalized. X told lie upon lie about his father’s age, the year the father came to America, even his own age; and he destroyed most of his papers all in the effort to conceal the fact that he was ineligible for high office. Who is Mr. X?

As strange as this may sound, we are not discussing Barack Obama here. Mr. X is Chester A. Arthur, the 21st President of the United States who succeeded to the Presidency upon the assassination of President James Garfield. Due to the diligent research of Leo C. Donofrio with the assistance of Arthur biographer Greg Dehler we learn that Chester A. Arthur was a usurper, never eligible for POTUS. Talk about an amazing confluence of events: just as we are ready to install the ineligible Barack Obama as POTUS we learn that this has happened before. As Donofrio says in his report on the matter; “… it’s no precedent to follow.”

The political enemy mentioned in the lead paragraph was, in reality, one Arthur P. Hinman (see footnote below)*, who may have been hired by the Democrats to smear Arthur. Interestingly, the charge of ineligibilty for POTUS brought by Hinman against Arthur was true, but for the wrong reason: Chester A. Arthur was a British subject at birth (just as Obama was) but by virtue of his birth prior to his father’s naturalization rather than birth on foreign soil. As in Obama’s case, who acknowledges on his website that he had dual citizenship at birth, we find the evidence in plain sight but too late discern its meaning.

*More interesting but entirely without foundation was the Hinman myth circulated in 1880 and 1881. This story asserted that Elder Arthur had three sons: William Chester Alan Arthur, born at the home of his mother’s parents in Dunham, Province of Quebec; Chester Abell Arthur, born at Fairfield; and William Arthur, Jr., born at Hinesburgh, Vermont. When William Arthur, Jr., was born, the oldest son dropped the William and retained the names Chester Alan, as he could do because of the death in infancy of his brother, Chester Abell. He later, according to the Hinman story, appropriated the birth record of the second son in order to sustain his American citizenship. No death record existed to prove this substitution because the father had sold the infant’s body to a medical school! On the basis of these allegations, the American public were assured that Arthur was a British subject and in consequence disqualified for the Vice Presidency or Presidency. It was a political maneuver, and, as such, ineffective. (from “Chester A. Arthur-A Quarter-Century of Machine Politics” by George F. Howe)

Obama Not the 1st Usurperd

Obama the Usurper: Day 1 Jan. 20, 2009

January 18, 2009

Let us pray that Chief Justice Roberts keeps the following oaths firmly in mind when facing the ineligible Barack Hussein Obama on Inauguration Day 2009.

In the United States, federal judges are required to take not just one, but two oaths. The first oath is this:

I, John G. Roberts, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will administer justice without respect to persons, and do equal right to the poor and to the rich, and that I will faithfully and impartially discharge and perform all the duties incumbent upon me as XXX under the Constitution and laws of the United States. So help me God.

The second oath that federal judges must take is this::

I, John G. Roberts, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.

Alas, I believe the affirmations will go unheeded and the usurpation will have begun. Obama, of course, will swear whatever is required to obtain the office of POTUS.

Following reprinted from Steady Habits, Departing From the Constitutional Road”,November 17, ’08:

“No country upon earth ever had it more in its power to attain these blessings than United America. Wondrously strange, then, and much to be regretted indeed would it be, were we to neglect the means and to depart from the road which Providence has pointed us to so plainly; I cannot believe it will ever come to pass.”
—George Washington, letter to Benjamin Lincoln, June 29, 1788

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
–Preamble to The United States Constitution

The Constitution of the United States has endured for over two centuries. It remains the object of reverence for nearly all Americans and an object of admiration by peoples around the world. William Gladstone was right in 1878 when he described the U.S. Constitution as “the most wonderful work ever struck off at a given time by the brain and purpose of man”. –Edwin Meese III; The Heritage Guide to the Constitution,

We assume that in fact no one would dare to run for and claim the Presidency if he/she didn’t meet the qualifications of the Constitution.“ –From TD Blog, “Four Questions for the Trogan Candidate”

While International socialists gloat (“American has been cut down to size”)* and smug former terrorists (that would be Ayers and Dohrn) blandly proclaim they meant no harm, one can only hope that come January 20th Chief Justice Roberts will have assured himself that Barack H. Obama is indeed eligible to attain to the office of President of The United States. The nation teeters on the brink of a constitutional crisis so huge that it actually could be ignored or dismissed by the very people (that would be the supremes) who are sworn to uphold it.

Perhaps one can sense now why Barack Hussein Obama chose constitutional law as his personal field of specialization. It is becoming increasingly clear that Mr. Obama has known all along that he is constitutionally ineligible for President of The United States but has nevertheless mounted an extremely successful campaign which threatens an end run around the Constitution and has brought him nearly to the U.S. Presidency.

We are witnessing the greatest fraud ever perpetrated upon our people: the imminent attainment to the Presidency of the United States by a usurper, one Barack Hussein Obama, who has used every device and subterfuge to avoid proving his eligibility to hold the office.

*…. America has been cut down to size and the beneficiaries are those who were always jealous of her wealth and power. The result will not only be less U.S economic power but the diminution of American military power. One will inevitably follow the other, especially if more U.S. manufacturing industries go bankrupt.

Imminent Usurpation
No person except a natural born citizen, or a citizen of the United States, at the time of the adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the office of President….(United States Constitution, Article II, Section 2)
