“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; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States” Article II Section I, Constitution, United States of America
That’s quite a plain and straightforward set of requirements for those seeking to be President–just three little things. You would think we would never have a problem with anyone trying to sneak past these points, but I’m sad to say we do.
One of the grandest myths of the past couple of years is the lie that Barack Obama has proven his eligibility to be President–he has done no such thing, nor has he been called upon to do so by those in authority. The lie that Obama has proven himself is repeated ad nauseam by the mouths of the leftist media and Washington spokesmen. I marvel at the vicious passion they display on this topic.
But, guess what! It’s not just those on the left, but also many on the right, who treat the subject of Obama’s eligibility as kryptonite. I assume they fear being painted as nutjobs, or maybe they fear something worse happening to them. Why? Because the left has waged a massive, blaring campaign to discredit and demean the many millions of Americans who ask the simple question, “Where was Barack Obama born?” It is an amazing thing to see how the left, and some on the right, go into rabid overdrive when this subject is broached.
Please don’t repeat the big lie to me that the online image of that computer-generated document proves Obama was born in Hawaii. It does not. Assuming it is a legitimate document, it only proves that Obama was born alive, but it does not establish where he was born, since Hawaii would issue those certifications to babies born outside of the United States. Nor do two newspaper announcements establish where he was born.
If he was born in the United States, why all the secrecy? If he was born in the U.S., it is possible that he renounced his U.S. citizenship at some point, which would nullify his eligibility to be president. At the very least, he would have been born with dual citizenship, as his father was a British subject at the time of Obama’s birth, making Obama Constitutionally ineligible to be president. Understand that I am not claiming to know where Obama was born. I do not know. What I do know is that he is hiding something quite significant.
The media campaign to label as wackos those of us who demand to see proof of Obama’s eligibility is successful to the point that, “Oh, I’m no ‘birther!'” is a common disclaimer out of the the mouths of politicians and pundits on the right who are offering any criticism of Obama’s agenda. Again, I wonder, of what are they afraid?
What about all the judges who have almost uniformly ruled no one “has standing” to bring suit against the Obama administration? There have been numerous lawsuits demanding that Obama prove his Constitutional eligibility to serve as President, and with nearly no exceptions, judges refuse to hear the cases. How can American citizens have “no standing” to bring a case against a potential usurper to our presidency? If we don’t have standing, then who does?
Who is getting to all these judges? I know there are many, many leftist judges in our courts, but not all of them are. Are these judges receiving credible death threats toward themselves or their families? Is this what causes them, almost to a man, to toss out these legitimate lawsuits? It is astonishing and perplexing. The Obama administration has, so far, apparently spent close to two million dollars fighting the release of his pertinent documents.
This is about much more than a copy of an original long-form birth certificate. Unlike our previous presidents, almost none of Obama’s past documentation has been made available to the public. Hidden deep in the cavernous well of mystery of Obama’s past, lie his school records, which include kindergarten, Punahou school, Occidental College, Columbia University and Harvard, plus his theses and other articles that would have been written, his medical records, his passport records (which would likely be very revealing), his complete records from his time in the Illinois state senate, his adoption records, his mother’s marriage and divorce records, and his Illinois state bar association records.
His missing college records are important, because they could indicate that he received financial aid as a foreign student. Who did fund his college expenses? Harvard ain’t cheap, you know.
So, this week the video surfaces of Michelle Obama giving her speech in which she casually names Kenya as Obama’s “home country“. This has served to ramp up the debate, and I’m wondering why this video is popping up just now, when that speech was given back in 2008.
Massive credit must be given to Joseph Farah and the hardworking staff at World Net Daily for their bold and tireless efforts to get to the bottom of the Obama nativity story. They have done all the heavy lifting and research and have taken harsh arrows of derision from the left and many on the right for keeping this issue alive. But, they’re not going to drop it, and I commend them.
Glenn Beck, Andrew Breitbart and Bill O’Reilly come to mind as those on the “conservative” side who suddenly sound like they’re on MSNBC when it comes to the Obama eligibility subject. The common argument is that there are so many other, more important, issues for which to criticize the Obama administration without having to go to that “stupid birther” topic. Allow me to point out the obvious and the bottom line here. If Obama actually is Constitutionally ineligible to serve as President of the United States, then every single decree, piece of congressional legislation and executive order that has crossed Obama’s desk since January 20, 2009 is null and void. His entire presidency is invalidated, and he should stand trial for his crimes against our country.
I’m certainly not holding my breath here for the truth to be manifest. But now, each day brings new, horrifying revelations about what is in this hellish Obamacare legislation. Our chances of defeating it in the courts are daunting. If only the truth about Obama’s past were brought to light, Obamacare would be negated.
Do those in power on the right fear riots in the streets if Obama is exposed as the fraud so many of us suspect he is? I don’t know, and I don’t really care what they fear. I don’t care who wants to label me as a nutcase for demanding that the Constitution be upheld. If we don’t stand up for the Constitution, it will be buried by the communists who currently run our government. They are going to ram through every abominable, anti-Constitutional piece of legislation they can get their dirty hands on before the November elections.
Those of us who smell a big, fat rat in Obama’s past must not fear being labeled crazy for speaking out against this potential usurper of our presidency–labeling us wacky is the best they can do instead of revealing the truth about Obama. Now, more than ever, we must turn up the heat, turn up the volume on demanding this man prove to our nation that he is legally occupying the White House. There is nothing crazy about insisting that our precious Constitution be upheld. Don’t back down or be afraid to speak your mind on this paramount subject, my friends!
Mr. Obama, where’s the birth certificate?
