The left likes to call it the “birther” issue. The term birther is used as a derisive term by the left, much as truther is. Of course the difference is truthers beliefs are based on a paranoid ideology, where as the birther issue is based on facts.
I prefer to call it the eligibility issue, not the birther issue. Whether you agree or not, the people who are pushing the eligibility issue are on our side. It is certainly counter-productive to deride them like liberals do.
Recently a whole stream of Republicans have come out, at the prompting of the drive by media, to reassure us that Obama is a citizen and oh, yes, he is a Christian too.
Last Sunday, at the prodding of David Gregory on Meet the Press, or as Rush likes to call it, Meet the depressed, Boehner said, the State of Hawaii had said he was born there, that was good enough for him.
Karl Rove, not a friend of the Tea Party, pushed the RINO line that Obama is a citizen and Sarah Palin, at a meeting in Long Island, a few days ago, also denounced the eligibility issue. Palin ended her remarks on the subject by saying, “let’s stick with what really matters.”
This issue does matter.
There are three variations on the eligibility issue. Two are based on undisputed facts. The third is in dispute.
The most commonly reported of the eligibility challenges is the claim that Obama was actually born in Kenya, not Hawaii. I believe, based on the available evidence, that it is more likely than not, Obama was actually born in Hawaii. Obama has spent a lot of time and (other people’s) money, keeping his original birth certificate out of sight.
Jack Cashill is one of my favorite writers and he has a theory which I think makes sense, that Obama was in fact born in Hawaii, but there is something else on his birth certificate that would destroy the myth of Barack Obama. (See his website, Cashill.com). In the law, there is a presumption that if a party has exclusive access to a piece of evidence and will not release it, the evidence must be adverse to their position.
The second eligibility issue is the claim that because Barack Obama’s father was a Kenyan, a British subject at the time of Obama’s birth, he is not a natural born citizen.
The third is the argument that because Barack Obama was adopted as a child by an Indonesian and moved to Indonesia, he is not an American citizen. Under the law at that time, if an American child was adopted by a citizen of another country and moved to that country, he lost his citizenship. He could regain his citizenship by applying at an American Embassy when he was 18, but would then be treated as a naturalized citizen and thus ineligible to be President.
What is stunning about all of this is the mainstream Republican reaction to the eligibility issues.
The RINOs turn their noses up at the people who want the answers, which, incidentally is 60% of Republican voters. They turn their noses up at the Tea Party movement. Yet, they do not take a moment to consider why this is important.
If Barack Obama is proved to be ineligible to be President, everything he has done is wiped out. Obamacare is gone. The START treaty is gone. The liberal lunatics Obama has appointed to the Federal Judiciary, including the two he has put on the Supreme Court are gone.
Much of the damage Obama has done to this country can be undone. Unfortunately, the Country Club Republicans remain clueless. In their minds, the Democrats are simply the lower class versions of themselves. They do not understand that if the party of treason has its way, America will be forever changed and ultimately destroyed.
The Courts have so far brushed aside all of the eligibility claims. None have been addressed on the merits under the claim that Americans lack standing to challenge the issue. Recently, the Supreme Court has given some indication it may consider one of the issues. We can only hope.
What are the chances of success? Who knows?
Why do football teams run the flea flicker play? It does not work all of the time, but when it does, the results are spectacular. Why should conservatives all hope this works out? Because this wipes out almost everything the Obama regime has done. We get a do over.
You would think, even the RINOs who want to denigrate the eligibility issue could figure this one out.

The Voeltz v Obama hearing on Monday has generated lots of Buzz. The case was originally filed by plaintiff Mike Voeltz back in February. Larry Klayman signed on as counsel, amended the complaint and pleaded at Monday’s amazing hearing. Hear about the interesting background of this case, issues, why and how Larry signed on, what the strategy and issues are, possibly outcomes and subsequent actions, other nationwide challenges.

On Monday, Leon County Circuit Court Judge Terry Lewis presided over a hearing on the motion to dismiss and nature of natural born Citizenship. He asked counsel of both sides to submit proposed orders coming Monday. Judge Terry is the same man who ordered Katherine Harris to stop counting ballot in 2000 (Gore v Bush case). Larry Klayman was an attorney on that case, on the winning side. It escalated all the way to SCOTUS.
The defense focused on attempts to dismiss the case on various technicalities, which is all they really have. Klayman hammered home plaintiffs arguments of natural born citizenship, forged documents, identity fraud, Florida election law and settled law. Since nearly every prior case has been dismissed, we know full well what the risks are, but this case would have to lose on something other than facts and law.
Monday 6/18 Florida Voeltz v Obama hearing:
At Easter, we had an opportunity to go to the Madame Tussauds Wax Museum while visiting our son in DC--there, they have all the presidents on display (along with wax figures of Malcolm X/MLK--thought they should have had father and son next to each other, but I digress--JMHO)--anyway--you would not believe how many people were going up to the George Bush (43) figure and posing for pics with it while giving it the finger right in the figure's face--and others were literally kissing MO/BHO--it was truly disgusting--I did speak up when I saw one fellow give Bush the finger--not only didn't I not like it--there was a group of about 10 elementary school aged kids standing right there and I told him I didn't think it was appropriate to do that, especially in front of the children--he gave me the finger (and thankfully my husband and son didn't see him or who knows, I might be writing to you from jail!!!)
Normally, I don't necessarily believe what I read in the "tabloids", but, the Nat'l Enquirer did break the Tiger Woods and John Edwards stories--why couldn't this one be true too?
Saw Warren Buffet bought another newspaper this one in Waco,Tex. Now newspapers generally are a loss investment and the only reason I can think of is to snuff the truth. Whoever controls the media abets their objectives. The Progressive Left in total has a lid on what is allowed to the people.
Why don't they investigate the 3 gay members of Reverend Wright's church who were murdered right before Obama started his run for President? Here is what one mom thought.
Why hasn't the agenda-driven media report on Barack Obama being gay dating actor Kal Penn and frequenting Chicago bathhouse, Man's Country, the way they leaped to trash Herman Cain?
I would say that the media have gay execs in their top ranks
The globalists are generally very active in all sorts of illicit sex, whether it is extra-marital, gay, or even pedophilia. Part of the attempt to transform America is to remove Judeo-Christian prohibitions on sex. A number of globalist politicians have been brought down by sex scandals. Obama undoubtedly has been blackmailed and is at least partially controlled through his active alternative life style. It is interesting to note that the book The Amateur steers clear of the topic.
I would say that the New York Times is a big part of the problem in the United States. Why do people have to depend on Birther blogs to learn what should be reported in the New York Times. For them to try to exert absolute control over what the citizens are allowed to know is one of the great crimes of the last twenty years. Covering for Obama is their most dastardly deed. They can not report:
Obama's ineligibility for office
Obama's sexual orientation
Obama's plan for fundamentally transforming America
Obama's relationship to Reverend Wright, Auchi, Blagojevich, Resko
The effective presidency in the hands of Valerie Jarrett and Michelle Obama
$14 trillion of off-book indebtedness of the government
Fast and Furious
Holder's involvement in the Oklahoma City bombing
The real unemployment figures
The amount of oil reserves in the United States
The truth about global warming
