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.
I don't know if this is true or not --
BREAKING! Attack on America?! NDAA Military Plans.... Listen and decide for yourself.
"There is an event coming in the very near future that is going to effect the USA to its very soul," former Kansas State Trooper Greg Everson of The Heartland USA and former host of Republic Broadcasting Voices from the Heartland told host Steve Quayle in a special two hour Survive 2 Thrive broadcast.
Off topic. Apparently the U.S Attorney General's office is having a get to know Islam - community meeting in Alabama. I just wondered if the 10th Amendment no longer exists. It's like take Islam, like it or not. What is happening is that their numbers are increasing dramatically, much of it extended relatives under the family reunification program and anchor births. The problem with this situation is the demand entitlements and their refusal to assimilate.
It's called - entitling, empowering, embracing, welcoming and political DENIAL that these immigrant elements are potential/probable TERRORISTS and our Enemies. IGNORANT is as IGNORANT Does!!
kimacomet, Who said Obama's parents forged it? The question is "Why DID Obama and his cronies forge his birth certificate that they put on his website last year? What is Obama hiding?
Kimacomet, it was a well thought out plan by the communists to take over our country. They KNEW someone could get a B.C from Hawaii without being born there.
This administration brings fraud to an entirely new level...
I'm continually amazed at how we can witness these atrocities and continue to do nothing. Don't you get it? This rogue government not only usurped the White House but they are now bleeding us dry!
Carl, I read about that loophole last week. What a joke! And unfortunately it's on us. How does Ryan, Kantor and the rest of the GOP not sound the alarm bells on this? Notice I didn't mention Boehner or McConnell.
This loophole should be closed immediately. Obama uses the IRS to go after the GOP returns but those that are here illegally, no.
And the GOP obliges them in this miscarriage of justice.
Illegal is illegal. The IRS should collect taxes for the income the illegal aliens earned while in the US without exemptions or credits and turn them over to ICE for deportation. Period!
Being a county chairman for the GOP I try, almost daily, to make the State leadership aware of the eligibility issue, the fraud, the forgeries, etc.., also keep my membership abreast of this boondogle (illegal aliens bleeding us dry) and others as they are revealed to us but what I'm finding is that the GOP, as a whole, could care less about the demise of this Nation. They only care about and work towards one thing... Electing Republicans. That's it. Don't bring anything else to their party as the interest just isn't there. From the RNC all the way down to most precinct level work, the only thing that matters is electing Repubs AND being able to troll for funds.
For the past two years I've realized that the only way we are going to affect any change is by banding together in numbers too large to ignore and surrounding them in their seats of power and not leaving till they are brought out in chains and frog marched to the nearest jail to await justice. We are long overdue for this type of action and you've got to realize the Tree of Liberty is literally starving for its fertilizer.
Carl I believe you but we have to put up our own Republican candidates. I thought this would take place beginning in 2009 but we all have to ask ourselves why is this not happening. Those figures on Easter Island looking to the horizon are us, and perhaps some smart dude will travel to Easter Island and put a message up, " Solidified Tea Party Members Still Waiting For Direction." Well another smart dude may come along and place dynamite under the solidified TP members and blow them up, and then place a message, Let's Start Over." We can blame the Republicans for destroying America, but someone eons from now will ask, "What of the Tea Party, what did they do?" And you know what? - the tea Party Party members will be blamed for allowing it to happen, becuse they were in the know. Reality. We need one leader.
