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.
His mind numbing ignorance of eligibility is comparable to his complete void on the issues of illegal immigration, sharia law, and global warming. It is amazing that he can feed himself.
It is amazing that his words of wisdom are the very best the New York Times could field. They are so 20th century.
RE: EXECUTIVE ORDER 13618
PATRIOTS AND FRIENDS, IN THE EVENT WE LOSE ALL MEANS OF COMMUNICATIONS, AND THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT SHUTS DOWN THE INTERNET (A PRIVATE COMMUNICATION VEHICLE) YOUR LAND LINES, AND YOUR CELL PHONES, MEET UP WITH YOUR LOCAL PATRIOT GROUP, (TEA PARTY) THE FOLLOWING DAY AT NOON, AT YOUR COUNTY COURT HOUSE. AT THIS MEETING WE WILL ESTABLISH A LINE OF COMMUNICATIONS BETWEEN OTHER COUNTIES AND STATES, EVEN IF IT’S A PONY EXPRESS. PLEASE PASS THIS INFORMATION TO EVERY ONE IN YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS BOOKS. WE MUST, AS AMERICAN CITIZENS BE INFORMED AT ALL TIMES, ABOUT ALL MATTERS, THAT CONCERN US AND OUR NATION.
I'm passing this along to you! Please pass this along, Far & Wide!!
Good idea Saska. The nice thing about the Internet, as designed not by Al Gore, but rather by DARPA, a US army group, is that the protocol is entirely self reliant. That means that the Internet per se is only a connection. If you connect any two computers they can talk to each other. The nerds who are generally loyal patriots will have microwave point to point communications going within months. Satellite communications should be back in limited fashion in weeks. In the mean time any NWO types will be safest in underground accommodations, because most of us will be really pissed.
I also wouldn't plan on showing up "empty-handed", either, if you know what I mean!!
Royce, did you hear anything about that commercial on Fox I saw?? I know you've "got your ears to the ground"! Please let us know what you find out, because I was amazed at what I saw! I can't believe the Fox goons let it by, I really think it was on Megyn's segment, could have been on the later ones, though, I forget and I often run my TV back or just plain shut it off!
Good plan, Saska. Thank you.
I have forgotten what Executive Order 13618 is -- and I can't find it on the internet.
Will someone who knows, please explain it?
Elizabeth this may be it.
You are right, Diogenes! It's the Assignment of National Security & Emergency Preparedness Communications Functions.
I don't get any news from TV, except candidate ads running on general programming. Fox may be hard right to the leftests, but it is left of center for me. The clowns such as O'Reilly are bought and paid for like gay Chief Justice John Roberts. It seems that whoever has committed sexual indiscretions is subject to blackmail. People like Obama and Hillary have committed so many sexual and non-sexual indiscretions that they are wholely owned by their radical left masters. You will be surprised when the pupetmaster is revealed, but it will explain Rinoism.
One idea we must make a matter of understanding is that fascism is not a far right issue, but rather a far left agenda. I am as far right as one can get, but abhor fascism. The real political divide is between no government and total government. No government is anarchy and total government is autocratic fascism. This is the bond between the Islamists and the Marxists. They believe nirvanna is total government control and lack of any personal freedom. Obama is a card carrying member in both clubs.
A constitutional republic is more government than a democracy, but still low on the amount of total government. A constitutional republic believes in limited government and maximum human rights. The left's drive for civil rights is a faux thrust for human rights and really only a mechanism to enslave the majority by a minority, even if the minority is a majority. If the women's moverment cared about women's rights, why are they totally silent on the issue of legalized rape under Islam. Clinton totally destroyed the credibility of women's rights by engaging in a sexual relationship with an employee and the leftist women's agenda said nothing. Really they were only concerned with breaking the family and promoting abortion. When Islamists splash acid on the faces of women they say nothing. When islamists murder their daughters for being raped they say nothing. When islamists marry off girls under 10, they say nothing. When women are not allowed to attend school, they say nothing.
Well said, Royce.
Thanks Saska, sent far and wide.
Royce your hunch proved right and I hope the end: Conspirators to Murder Arpaio Indicted.
