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.
Justice won't prosecute Holder.
The rape in Tahrir Square of Lara Logan on the night of Mubarek stepping down is explained by Lara on this 60 minutes interview. In the report CBS theorizes that it was Mubarek supporters who did the rape. On another report by someone who understood Arabic, as the rape was occurring she was called Jew, American, Mubarek's bitch. The raw footage of the rape is readily available on Arabic web sites, but I was not able to find it on multiple searches. My opinion is the details have been scrubbed, because the reality of the Obama, Soros, Brennan inspired revolt against a pro-American dictator in favor of the terrorist Muslim Brotherhood is reminiscent of the Brennan led removal of the Shah of Iran under the anti-Semite Jimmy Carter. Remember that Obama would not offer a word of encouragement to the real freedom fighters in Iran, trying to free themselves from the yoke of Islamic oppression.
Here is the 60-minute interview: http://www.cbsnews.com/video/watch/?id=7364550n
Accounts from the Arabic world insist that she was raped via penis and one of her nipples was bitten off.
Pictures from the pre-rape scene blurred the faces of the presumed attackers.
Don't watch this if you are sensitive.
This is the raw cell phone video of the beginning of the rape. You can see her friend holding on to her before he is pulled away. The men on the van display pieces of her clothing. You can plainly hear her screams. Lara had gone to the square to witness the celebration of the stepping down of Mubarek who was America's ally for many years and had kept the peace with Israel. The new Muslim Brother president has promised that the new capital of Egypt will be Jerusalem. This radical Islamic Muslim Brotherhood has been legitimized by Obama as moderate, but their freedom to rape is becoming well known in Europe and wherever they go.
Off Topic: During the final day of vote for Holders contempt of Congress, Representative Tiereny of Massachusetts, a jackal if you can imagine pleaded with Issa not to go through with the vote. Came across an article today, where Tierney is being accused by family members of running a gambling racket.
At a state Tea Party I entered the following post on the Roberts' tax.
Obamacare was passed March 11,2010 some 2 years and 3 months, It's ironic I think that Roberts is blamed when the Republicans nearly in total voted for it. Now the Republicans are whipping up a storm to reverse it as if it's Robert's fault, when clearly it required taxing when they approved it. I think it was March 26 this year that Roberts cornered the Justice Dept. attorney and said it was a tax, and the following day Justice admitted it was a tax, Now I don't remember we the Tea Party getting in an uproar at that point over the tax: it was duh, the court will sink Obamacare. I'm mad Roberts because he had not demanded Kagan to recuse herself and because he was a coward to hold the decision until Thursday, 28 June, 2012, when the court recessed. All along the Republicans tell you to drink ten gallons of s*** and you ( we ) ask for two more.
I just read an article that a month ago Roberts was against the mandate and was going to knock it down along with the 4 conservative Justices, the all of a sudden he changed his mind and that it was Kennedy who for the last month has been pleading with Roberts to change his mind. But he went with the liberals and the 4 Justices have washed their hands of him.
Maybe Holder has something on him, like J. Edgar Hoover used to do when he was head of the FBI. You never know.
Something smells rotten in Denmark, er, DC.
These guys play dirty. Case in point Fast and Furious. If you bring a knife, they bring a gun. If you put one of theirs in the hospital, they put one of yours in the morgue. The intimidation may be at a level that you would not believe. The dissolution of the Constitution is at stake. Remember the Breitbart was murdered, his coroner was poisoned. Judge Roll was assassinated. Arizona has been sued and Sheriff Arpaio is facing down the Soros warchest. Female candidates Palin and Bachmann have been steamrolled. Black people have been sold down the river. Sharia has experienced a major rivival in Kenya, Egypt, and is now on the verge of taking over in Turkey.
Diogenes --- Where did you get this malarkey?
"Roberts is blamed when the Republicans nearly in total voted for it."
In another discussion:
Is this reply by dasher inaccurate????
Please remember that there was not a single Republican vote for the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ObamaTax) in the House or the Senate.
Correct Charlie, I guess I was deranged to have blamed the poor Republicans for Obamacare and I apologize for my charge. I did not absolve Roberts, I just believed the Republicans should be first in line for the blame for waiting on the court to sink Obamacare. There is plenty to blame the Republicans for Obamacare such as not reading it, and not dissecting the implications, and allow the public what would result.
This is an excerpt from a member of my email group who runs a health support group which is worldwide.
This is about a Canadian member of her support group about socialized health care in Canada:
I have friend in Canada who had carpal tunnel surgery done a few years ago... she emailed me a couple days after the surgery that her fingers were turning purple and she couldn't move them. I told her to call the dr. She said she did and they told her that she couldn't see him for another 3 months. I told her to go to the ER- she said they can't go to the ER there unless it's a life threatening emergency- and losing a finger or hand isn't considering a life threatening emergency.
Those in my group who need a cornea transplant have to wait between 2-3 years after being told they need one. They are put on a waiting list for that long. Here, you can get one in a couple weeks. By the time you get one in England or Canada you are almost totally blind and in severe pain waiting.
This is from someone in her support group from England:
