“It is impossible to calculate the moral mischief, if I may so express it, that mental lying has produced in society. When a man has so far corrupted and prostituted the chastity of his mind as to subscribe his professional belief to things he does not believe he has prepared himself for the commission of every other crime.”
~Thomas Paine, The Age of Reason
The crisis over Obama/Soetoro's constitutional eligibility has raged on since September 2008. There is a segment of our society that care nothing for the U.S. Constitution and believe it doesn't matter whether the putative president is eligible or not as long as he keeps promising to hand them the largess of the people's bankrupt purse. The "mainstream" media and cable news anchors like O'Reilly, Beck, Hannity and others have poo-poo'd this serious issue from day one. It's obvious to anyone who has spent the countless hours necessary to understand the "natural born" citizenship issue that none of the aforementioned has done anything but parrot the lies pumped by a prostitute media.
Then along came The Donald. Trump has certainly changed the game with his slew of appearances over the past month by asking the question: Why won't Obama produce his birth certificate? He's spent well over a million dollars hiding it. Why?
Millions of Americans according to the polls don't believe the usurper is constitutionally eligible. There are many who know and are co-conspirators in the fraud and cover up. Obama/Soetoro/Dunham or whatever his real name is has had a lot of help along the way. He is a creation groomed by a known communist in Hawaii, Frank Marshall, Jr. As Trump has remarked, Obama/Soetoro has a very shady past and his facilitators like Nancy Pelosi and others should also be indicted under the RICO statutes.
In 2004, the impostor president ran for the U.S. Senate. Allegedly, with help from ACORN and the massive vote fraud we see every election, he won a seat in the U.S. Senate under a law that does not exist.
One year later, Sarah Herlihy, an associate at the Chicago firm of Kirkland & Ellis gets her paper published in the Kent University Law Review on line. Herlihy claims in her paper that the citizenship requirement of the U.S. Constitution has been called "stupid and discriminating." Of course, she never tells us who makes this claim. Please note that a partner at the same law firm was one Bruce I. Ettelson, who apparently had a working relationship on finance committees for Obama and buffoon, Sen. Richard Durbin. Herlihy's paper, which shows "author approved editing" as November 23, 2005, is titled, "Amending the Natural Born Citizenship Requirement: Globalization as the Impetus and the Obstacle."
Somewhere along the way, the issue of Obama's father being a Kenyan national and under British rule (British Nationality Act of 1948) surfaced while the new Messiah was being groomed to steal the White House. Obama is a lawyer and has spent a great deal of time around other high power lawyers. Someone along the way said, uh, we have a problem. Beginning not too long after Obama became a U.S. Senator, the thorny problem of the U.S. Constitution had to be dealt with and out comes a paper by his lawyer friend, Herlihy, which opens up the discussion. Next comes the smoke screen legislation which was really to "qualify" Obama. Of course, it didn't work, so with the help of the useful fools in the dominant media and cable news networks like FOX, CNN and MSNBC, the issue was covered up and/or ridiculed as nothing more than sore losers or conspiracy nuts.
Several members of Congress tried to legislate his citizenship last year. It didn't work. In February 2008, Democrats (and one Republican) began pushing legislation on the issue of citizenship:
"...on February 28, 2008, Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) introduced a bill to the Senate for consideration. That bill was known as S. 2678: Children of Military Families Natural Born Citizen Act. The bill was co-sponsored by Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL), Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-NY), Sen. Robert Menendez (D-NJ), and Sen. Thomas Coburn (R-OK).
"Bill S. 2678 attempted to change article II, section 1, clause 5 of the Constitution of the United States with reference to the requirements of being a “natural born citizen” and hence; the entitlement to run for President of the United States. This bill met the same fate that similar attempts to change the Constitution have in the past. Attempts such as The Natural Born Citizen Act were known to have failed and the text scrubbed from the internet, with only a shadow-cached copy left, that only the most curious public can find....
"Within only five short weeks after Senate Bill 2678 faded from the floor, we find Sen. Claire McCaskill back again, making another attempt with Senate Resolution 511. On April 10, 2008, she introduced a secondary proposal in the form of a non-binding resolution, recognizing John McCain as a “natural born citizen” in defiance of the Constitution. Curiously, it contained the same identical co-sponsors, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.
"One has to wonder — what dire urgency could there possibly have been in persisting with trying to legislate a candidate into being a “natural born citizen”? Certainly providing a birth certificate and reading the Constitution would be more than sufficient. Why did these candidates and their wishful nominees go to such lengths in the Senate when obviously, they had more pressing matters to attend to? And why were there two Senators co-sponsoring such an issue, twice, who were in direct competition with John McCain in the 2008 election?"
Even if Obama were born in Hawaii and there is no proof he was, that still does not make him constitutionally eligible. His father's citizenship is the legal reason why Obama can never be constitutionally eligible. His father was a foreign national visiting the U.S. (Hawaii) at the time of his birth. Under the British Nationality Act of 1948, Obama/Soetoro's citizenship was unequivocally based on his father's status at the time. Obama/Soetoro was born with dual citizenship and no amount of clever word smithing or name calling can change that legal fact.
Do you know the State of Illinois Election Board says they have no paperwork on Obama when he ran for the Illinois State Senate? How can that be? I know this to be a fact because I filed State Record Act requests and was astonished by the lack of any paperwork to determine if Obama/Soetoro was even eligible for office under Illinois Election laws.
Why did Obama aka Soetoro lie on his Illinois Bar Application when he said he has never used any other name but Barack Hussein Obama when public records show he used several aliases? Obama used Barry Soetoro as his legal name while attending Occidental College.
Barack Hussein Obama aka Barry Soetoro and so forth has always known he was not eligible to run and he did anyway. He committed wire fraud by using his campaign to illegally raise over $600 million dollars both on radio, television and the Internet; some $200 million illegally from foreign sources. The Federal Election Commission refuses to investigate.
If we had a real U.S. Department of Justice, a federal grand jury would be convened. There's no doubt in my mind Obama/Soetoro would be indicted and convicted for carrying out a "scheme to defraud" the public via their "dishonest services." See, as an example, United States v. Frega, 179 F.3d 793 (9th Cir. 1999). The wire fraud statute, 18 U.S.C. §1343, provides as follows:
“Whoever, having devised or intending to devise any scheme or artifice to defraud, or for obtaining money or property by means of false or fraudulent pretenses, representations, or promises, transmits or causes to be transmitted by means of wire, radio, or television communication in interstate or foreign commerce, any writings, signs, signals, pictures, or sounds for the purpose of executing such scheme or artifice, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than 20 years, or both. If the violation affects a financial institution, such person shall be fined not more than $1,000,000 or imprisoned not more than 30 years, or both.”
This is not idle speculation. The impostor president is clearly in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 1343 and must be held accountable or none of us should be required to obey any laws.
Of course, the biggest hurdle is the U.S. Attorney General, Eric Holder who worships Obama/Soetoro and would never uphold the law if it meant putting his boss in prison. Holder is not only a racist, but another corrupt individual who should have been indicted and charged with obstruction of justice in the Michael Trentadue murder investigation. Even though leaky Leahy (Sen. Patrick) knew at the time of Holder's obstruction, he pushed through Holder's confirmation anyway.
On top of the crime of wire fraud, Obama/Soetoro has been using a fake social security number. He used his fake number on his selective service registration. The individuals who have spent hundreds of hours investigating are not some flaky "right wing nut jobs." Susan Daniels is a private investigator with 15 years experience in tracking down fraudulent documents. Neil Sankey is a retired Scotland Yard Elite Officer and is a licensed investigator. They know fraud when they see it, but wait! Do you know that in November 2010, the Colorado Supreme Court ruled that a man who used his real name but someone else's Social Security number to obtain a car loan was not guilty of "criminal impersonation," overturning convictions by lower courts! In 2008, U.S. District Judge Harry S. Mattice ruled using a fake SSN might not qualify as breaking the law.
With theft identity ruining the lives of millions, Colorado's high court and a federal judge have said it's okay to use someone else's SSN to obtain a car loan or employment! Obama/Soetoro used a fake SSN for college admission, bar admission and along every step of his life littered with rot and corruption to the White House. Does anyone give a damn anymore for the law?
None of this trail of lies, deceit and violating federal law matters to his supporters and the lackeys in both electronic and print media who purport to be "fair and balanced" or the "most trusted name in news". How shameful.
How my beloved country has gone so far into the sewer that truth no longer matters. Where we have a Department of Justice headed up by a corrupt racist political animal while the Outlaw Congress sits on their hands. Where millions upon millions of Americans care only about the next elimination round of Dancing with the Stars, American Idol, who will win the college basketball tournament, the latest filth coming from "Lady" Gaga, NASCAR racing or playing every weekend instead of demanding justice because no one is above the law - least of all an individual who has lied and hustled his way into the White House. How shameful.
Where is honor and decency anymore in this country? Where are any men or women who will refuse to be cowed or intimidated by the race card in pursuing charges against Obama/Soetoro? Nowhere to be found, I can assure you. Remember the Ten Commandments and something about lying, cheating and stealing? Sadly for our constitutional republic, those three sins are now normal as well as cowardice in the halls of Congress and the two main political parties. It's all about power and how much more of your hard earned paycheck they can steal outside the limitations placed upon them by Art. 1, Sec. 8 of the U.S. Constitution.
For the Republicans, Obama/Soetoro is good political currency for 2012 --- even though he's not going to be able to get ballot qualified in many states. For the Democrats, the biggest mouthpieces will continue to upchuck their favorite buzz words like "conspiracy nuts" and extremists. In the end, both corrupt parties are promoting lawlessness with the Impostor in Chief rubber stamping the whole ugly mess. How shameful the American people by the tens of millions have sat back and allowed our country, our honor, integrity and decency to become nothing more than dust in the wind.
