With the reports increasing from various experts that the document the Obama administration released online at the end of April purporting to be a true copy of his long-form, vault-copy Certificate of Live Birth on file in Hawaii is fraudulent - and easily identified as such - this matter, of his eligibility for that office, is beginning to descend into the murky realm of farce; and more: into the realm of high insult. The man, simply, must go.
It is obvious that he has something to hide, about his birth, and his particulars along the way to the highest office in the land, or there wouldn’t have been all this obfuscation that has been going on for long enough now regarding his bona fides.
In getting more and more incensed over this matter, I dug out a copy of a comment I made on a blog back on May 24. To an article carried on the e-newsletter site Before It’s News on that date, entitled ‘Corsi to File Criminal Charges Against White House Over Obama Birth Certificate’, and a comment to the article by a poster saying, “Most Americans no longer care about the issue,” I replied, in a restrained version of my feelings:
“Which is why people like Jerome Corsi need to be supported fully in their attempts to break through the MSM stonewalling on this issue. What is happening here is the full eradication of the rule of law in America, if Mr. Obama (or whatever his real name is) is allowed to stiff the American people in this matter, and the MSM sign off on it. We will forever after be consigned to the hell of rule by arbitrary law - the rule of men; which is the signature practice of tyrants down through history.
“By refusing to level with the American people on his bona fides, Mr. Obama (or whatever his real name is) is mocking them, and the country. it is unseemly. It is an insult, not only to the American people but to the office. It must not stand.
“If this man continues to refuse to provide his true records, he must be removed from the office, for potentially proven crimes and blatant misdemeanors, and the whole lot of them - executive, legislative and judicial branches of the federal government - removed from office [it’s called being ‘recalled’] for being party to the offence to the Constitution and the People. An administrator to be appointed to call for elections to be held within a time certain; and in the meantime, to clean out the executive branch of all the tainted placemen holding positions therein. This all to be accomplished by a march on Washington of The People, including individual members of the armed forces, current and retired, who deserve the right to have a legal Commander in Chief, as they uphold the Constitution - NOT the person in the office of the presidency of the United States. That office is being defiled. It needs to be cleansed, for honor to return to America. Period.”
Let me clarify what I mean by the comment on the ‘rule of law’. (And which subject makes of the man‘s actual birth certificate a bit of a red herring anyway. If his father was, indeed, Barack Obama, he is ineligible for that office right there. But that needs to be proved by access to his original birth records. He could have been adopted; his true father could have been Frank Marshall Davis; etc. ) This goes to the subject of the definition of a “natural born citizen”, rather than just a citizen, or ‘native born citizen’ (or ‘naturalized’ citizen) that is required by the Constitution of any person to hold that particular office - as opposed to any other federal office, for which the eligibility bar is not set as high. There is all manner of evidence of what the Founding Fathers understood that term to mean, and why they made an issue of it in the Constitution: that the person needed to be born on ‘the soil’ (or equivalent thereof) of citizen parents - plural, in order to ensure as far as possible that the person did not have dual loyalties - and ESPECIALLY not to Britain, with which they had just fought and won a War of Independence. They were not about to let the British Empire slip back into control over the fledgling Republic via a back door.*
So this business of the president of the United States needing to be a ‘natural born citizen’ is of huge importance. And this current contretemps over this issue the same. Either America abides by and lives under the rule of law, or it will live by’/struggle with the law of the jungle, whereby the strongest rule, without The People having proper recourse to justice.
Hitler, after his rise to power, proclaimed: ‘I am the law.” That sort of circumstance is precisely where America is heading, in acceding to the fait accompli of a person in the office of the presidency who is occupying that chair illegally, and therefore sitting in it as though it is a throne.
Thus, if America continues going down the road it is on - and with various civil rights-busting laws put in place under the Bush administration as well** - it will become an Empire - not a Republic, for which it stands rightfully. Now, with this sort of law-breaking precedent, both the Left AND the Right are trying to create a dictatorship; with a particular purpose: in order to take the U.S., and with its passing, the world, into their respective New World Orders (but they are really the same one at the top of the pyramid of power that We the People are up against).
It could happen. But Americans should think long and hard before overturning the form of government bequeathed to them by the Founding Fathers and that generation. A form of government emphasizing the rights of the individual as against the majority, and representative government, rather than the volatility of direct democracy - but still, government “of, by, and for the people”, in Lincoln’s memorable phrase.
I am aware that some people are saying that the current members of Congress are refusng to look at this issue in the detail they should be doing - having the legal ‘standing’ in the matter, to take it to the Supreme Court for a ruling on the constitutionality of the matter - because of fear that ‘the blacks’ will take to the streets. Number one: that is a bit of an insult to ‘the blacks’ - as if they aren’t capable of understanding the point of the serious political issue, and its ramifications for ‘the rule of law’. Number two: a number of African-Americans have already expressed, in no uncertain terms, their disgust with the illegality that the man called Obama is parading under. And number three: Who really has the more right to be affronted in this matter? I’d say: the American people; who are being mocked from the highest office in the land, by a usurper.
It is The People who have the more right to take to the streets over this matter. And, yes, the responsibility; to return the nation to the rule of law.
And to clarify: I am not counseling violence. I am counseling a return to the rule of law. And it looks increasingly as though that return is going to take a major appearance of We, the People, Assembled, in Washington, to bring it about, as they recall their elected office holders, for the corruption they have demonstrated in this matter.***
A note on that public demonstration: Don’t let anyone tell you that its recommendation is to counsel illegal insurrection. Not only does it reflect the spirit of the founding of the American Republic, it also has some explicit constitutional legality behind it. As I said on another Comments thread on this subject (this to an article on the conservative byte e-newsletter site on June 10; my comment carried on the 12th):
“It’s obvious that Congress is not going to act on its own. So yes, it’s time for a march on Washington of The People, demanding that the man currently occupying the office of the presidency release his bona fides - his true records, subject to expert inspection.
“Since there is every good reason to believe that they are not sufficient for him to occupy that particular office legally - or he would have provided them by now - then (a) the People need to call on Congress to act on that fact forthwith, and declare “what Officer shall then act as President” (Art. II, Sec. 1). If Congress fails to so act - and to The People’s satisfaction - then (b) the Constitution allows for no other recourse than for The People to take the law back into their own hands, to declare such Officer, “and such Officer shall act accordingly, until the Disability be removed, or a President shall be elected”. And since Congress will have failed in their duty to act in the matter, such Officer, as part of the ‘cleaning of the house’ as you recommend, should dissolve that body, and call for elections of both the executive and the legislative branches of the federal government in a time certan, say within 90 days. Said Officer then having the right and responsibility to ‘clean the house’ of the executive branch of government as well, since the whole lot of the federal government will have been tainted by this current individual’s usurpation of power. And the Supreme Court will have nothing of substance to say about the matter, because it will have failed in its duty to let The People have recourse to a redress of their grievance through the judicial branch of government.
“A clean sweep, in other words, of the Augean stables of the federal government, is what would be called for, in such an event. With the oathkeepers of the country’s military, current and retired, marching in unison with The People, in their (overdue) move to right this wrong being visited on the American Republic - being visited in the name of Empire. Whether from the nominal ’left’ or ‘right’, it is a wrong, not in keeping with the spirit of the establishment of ‘the last, best hope of mankind’ - America, and her example [to the world] for self-government, and self-responsibility. Not to be ruled over by despots, either of church or royalty or state.
‘And may The People of America learn well the lesson in this regard. The lesson warned about by such as Thomas Jefferson, and others of her leaders in the past: that you can’t long have self-government without self-responsibility. Or the wolves will creep back in amongst you; who thirst for the power that you failed to honor, in your inattention to the job you had been bequeathed.”
It is up to The People, then, in summary, to right this wrong to the country. And in the righting of this wrong, they will open humanity up to a better future than that planned for it at the moment, by the Powers That Be, who wish to rule the world on their terms.
Not those of the Creator. Who wishes the highest for We, the People. Sparks of the One Source. Calling us, now, closer to home. To release our attachment to what is. And create what can be:
a Garden of Eden, on this lovely planet we call Earth; waiting for us, now, to give of life our best.
‘Seek ye first the kingdom of God...’
* Some commentators have posted facile arguments on the ‘net trying to muddy the waters on this factor, including saying that the Founding Fathers couldn’t have meant that ‘interpretation’ of the term because anybody could, subsequent to birth, become a dual citizen, so it is a meaningless issue. For them, perhaps; since they are championing a man who has fallen foul of that restriction. But just because a dual citizenship could be attained after birth doesn’t mean that the FF didn’t mean to put that limitation on a candidate for the office. It just means that they couldn’t cover all possible permutations of the law in the Constitution they came up with; that it would be up to future generations to deal with such details as circumstances arose. (Obviously, the spirit of the founding action should be honored.)
But a point of clarification: fundamental changes in the Constitution would have to come about via the amending process allowed for to keep the contract up to date with the unfolding of the Republic’s life. Nobody - not even a majority of the Supreme Court - can just declare a different definition of a fundamental term in the contract. The States must be involved in that sort of process. It IS, after all, a contract. Not just “a damn piece of paper,” as someone who should have known better described it somewhat recently.
We are getting into an important area of American politics that needs to be addressed at some point soon: that of ‘liberals’ trying to make of the Constitution a ‘living document’, subject to the socio-political whims of a majority of Supreme Court justices, rather than the legalistic approach of ‘strict constructionists’ - upholders of the basic judicial principle of ‘original intent’: doing their best to divine what did those who made the law(s) mean when they passed them. To disregard the ‘doctrine’ of ‘original intent’ is to open a can of legalistic worms, thus opening the door for the application of arbitrary law (‘Words mean what I say they mean, neither more nor less’ said Humpty Dumpty haughtily). Which, as I said above, is “the signature practice of tyrants down through history”. But to continue with the main thrust of this blog.
** Both sides of the political aisle are involved in this crime. That means that the fix is in at the top - that The People really haven’t had a proper choice in their government , have just had a choice between Tweedledum and Tweedledee. It’s the same cabal of powerful people at the top of the pyramid; who want to turn the world into their footstool.
Don’t let them.
And that means: Don’t trust the ‘opposition’ at an one time to be doing what they are supposed to be doing, in other than a one-party state.
Money talks out of both sides of its mouth.
*** And I am aware that they may not only be demonstrating corruption in this matter; but fear. Fear, not only for their political lives, but their very lives; and those of their families. Because they may have been made an offer they can't refuse. Very serious business: because the stakes are so high. In this case: 'the stakes' of control of the world. With very powerful people going for broke, now, as it were - including 'breaking' the economy, so that they can merge the U.S. into their vaunted New World Order, via the unrest created by said breakage, and the consequent declaration of Martial Law - activated because of a self-created 'state of national emergency' - by their placeman in the prime position of power to do so. As George W. came so close to doing before him. As part of the same putsch for power.
Forget 'left' or 'right'. It's the same Mob at the top of the pyramid. Manipulating their puppets, to do their bidding. As I indicated in the footnote above. And so perhaps the best thing The People could do for these people being so manipulated is to let them off the hook by said recall, and replace them with individuals who will be protected by The People from the Powers That Be behind the current throne.
