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.
Breitbart and the lead coroner's mysterious and sudden death and arsenic
The disinformation is well under way. Move on people, nothing to see here. One dead coroner, one missing eye witness, bright red face. It is agreed that Breitbart's heart stopped beating, so that must have been the cause of death.
Royce the walk from the dinner to cross the street must have taken under 20 seconds. Apparently there must have been no signs in the dinner but yet in that time frame was there no effort to revive Breitbart?
Manning fingers Sean Hannity. He says Fox sat on a tape of Michelle cussing white people in 2008. Now he contends that Hannity had the tape over which Breitbart was killed. The one Hannity played on his station was a real yawner, certainly no reason for murder. Besides the bright red color, which is not a sign of heart attack, did the one witness hear something from the dying Breitbart. Is that why he is missing?
President Obama announces his support for same-sex marriage, saying, 'it is important for me to go ahead and affirm that I think same-sex couples should be able to get married.'
Instead of coming out for gay marriage, which he previously opposed, why doesn't the resident just come out.
In addition to the first bi-racial, bi-national, bi-religion, president he could be a bi-sexual resident as well. I can appreciate his dilemma, in that his Muslim religion does not approve of gay marriage, but all his sexual partners do support gay marriage. His 50 year old conscience has evolved far enough that he can now come out for gay marriage. Now he can attack people that still believe in his former position as knuckle dragging Neanderthals. In all fairness Obama did approve gay marriage in 1996 when speaking in front of gay audiences, before he publicly opposed gay marriage.
God,that is Sickening!!!!!! TAKE IT BEHIND CLOSED DOORS!!!!
The other side of Chris Christie.
Off topic: Really now, why would she do that?

From today's New Media Journal:
|Obama Signs Executive Order Submitting US to Global Economic Regulations|
|On May 1st, Pres. Obama signed an Executive Order which opens the door for the United States to give up economic and environmental sovereignty through the promotion of a single international regulatory system. This regulatory system would seek to globally streamline cooperation between nations for trade, environmental and legislative processes on the international stage. While the need for economic cooperation between nations is crucial, these agreements are normally facilitated between governments through individual trade agreements and not by a globally designated regulatory body.|
