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.
If it wasn't a "long range plan" WHY was there so much controversy on the subject when his 'birth announcement" was announced in 1961? Why were there so many questions surrounding his place of birth? ( Was it indonesia-was it Cuba-was it Hawaii? ) Above on Edie's post, he says he was a reporter,he has a lot of info posted and video's of A.D -i wonder if he has the interviews that were done with A.D from 1959-1961? What about it Edie? How hard would they be to find ?
Hi Donna, the pictures I have are newspaper photos and articles of Obama as a young man and member of several Communist groups in foreign countries. I saved the printouts, luckily, because the blog they were on was taken down before I found time to go back and copy all the Obama information. However, my continuous investigation shows four reasons why Obama should be arrested as a Traitor because of running for President. He should be put in prison and tried, as should all the politicians and media the supported the coverup. Please see the web-mall that I created 3 yrs ago, www.itsyourissue.com and go to the lnk "About This Site" to see the Executive Summary for a proposal we were going to send of possible organizations that could afford to help put it up. I don't have the capital or the technical skills to run such a huge, complicated Internet site, but I have paid for the domains and a provisional patent for it. Banner ads on top of the articles/blogs, letters, and home pages of members and all their representatives would pay for expenses of the site, but we need the startup money to get it online to save our Constitution and country. By the way, I am a 76-yr-old female widow living on Social Security and a small pension, and with the current inflation it is getting harder every day to keep paying the the website's expenses, and I don't know if it will matter unless we get it online soon, so that we can get Obama in Prison and repeal all of his illegal bills and foreign agreements.
Diogenes, it took me a while to remember what you do with the acronyms. I looked it up on the Internet and came up with a list a mile long. Funny the other group would be OWN, which seems to be their intention. There is no doubt that the forces who placed Obama in the White House and who control the New York Times to such an extent, do not have the benefit of the American people at heart. The big impediment is the Constitution, which is being shredded every day. The giving up of habeas corpus has got to eclipse all of Obama's other atrocities.
As far as the Chinese go, they are in a mortal fight for the next power generation of the Communist party. There economy, being dependent on our economy is showing large fractures. They have so many problems that they make us look good by comparison.
Royce had not the early AIC/ OSS come under control of the communists during the Roosevelt administration? I think you posted something on that subject. As they recruit their own personnel it would be possible that the NWO infiltrated their own. It happened that some AIC personnel were double agents but not necessarily NWO people. It's lead now by a member of the green dragon society.
Could be that Barack Sr. agreed to marry her to stay in America or in those days, to save her self-respect.
Or maybe Barack Sr was also friends with Frank and did him a favor, after all, what is taking on another wife amongst friends. Isn't that what friends are for?:)
Once again his "name change" that was done in canada in 1982,from Barak Mounir U'bayd to BHO is in the news.
I don't see any resemblence there. O looks more like Stanley D. than anyone else.
Congress to mandate homosexual information in schoolrooms, unless ...These advocates are the equivalent of the Pink
Nazis; people who are ruthless, to the point of bestiality, including murder. Why now you ask? Its to complete the
destruction of society, a society that rejected those that practiced aberrant behavior of sex by men with men and the same of women with women. Why in the classroom? Homosexuality is not an accident at birth, but rather a learned impressment upon another. It happens in the early years into adolescents. That is why these Pink Nazis are going
forward with the force of law to convert the minds of youth in what has long been described as evil. The below reference
states the action required. Ask your president if he favors the passage of the bills now before Congress.
It is incredible of all the hidden identities Obama has, his homosexuality is not clear to all Americans. I know his pro-gay policies are unmistakable, but why are his myriad interludes not known? If we can put Cain under the microscope, why can't we take an honest look at the Resident.
There are powerful people working behind the scenes to protect Obama because he is carrying out their Agenda.
Look at the Larry Sinclair trial where the Judge dismissed the lawsuit against him because the plaintiff had no evidence to prove that he didn't take a $750,000 bribe from Obama's people to rig Sinclair's lie detector test so he would fail.
Sinclair was told this by a source and a reporter backed up Sinclair's claim because he talked to the source and it was true that Obama bribed the defendant to make sure Sinclair failed the test.
Do you see this anywhere on the news? I don't. But I think it's up to us to spread this around. What's Obama afraid of if he feels there's nothing wrong with being gay? Oh, that he was married to Michelle at the time of the "alleged" rendezvous with Sinclair?
Also, couldn't his handlers find an NBC to be their figurehead? Just like, couldn't the DNC find an NBC out of 300 million people, or couldn't the RNC find a VP out of the myriad of GOP politicians to run with Romney? And we're not even sure of Romney's NBC status.
You can't make this stuff up. Unreal. And these lies are perpetrated on us citizens and what's being done about it? Nothing!
Royce take a read at what the Pink Nazis are doing in Kansas. I think they got their empowerment through Obozzo. The media makes it a crime to attack a homosexual. In the matter at hand I think the wife has to show she has been injured by the husband to get press attention. As you recall the media did not press Clinton's departures nor his wife. Some media jerk will make it that polygamy is a crime whereas recreational sex is healthy. I showed in a post here that the homosexuals seek to indoctrinate young school children.
