Bud Abbott and Lou Costello - “Union Loafers”

Bud Abbott and Lou Costello, a popular American comedy duo during the 1940s and 50s, performed a number crowd pleasing skits. Even today, their “Who’s On First” skit is still well known.

Another of their famous skits, “Union Loafers”, would probably be considered “politically incorrect” by today’s far-left activists. Nonetheless, the humor of this comedic routine seems to be an appropriate reminder since looming on the horizon is the “card check” scheme to end private unionization ballots.

In this one, Abbott gets a loafing job at a bakery and Costello can’t understand that he gets paid for it.

IMPORTANT! - Who is behind quashing the birth certificate issue?

How many times have a heard a question like this?  "If there is anything to this birth certificate issue why haven't I heard it on the news?"

Who is behind quashing the birth certificate issue?
By Joan Swirsky

Back in October of 2008, when the subject of Obama's constitutional eligibility to be president of the United States was just a blip on the radar screen of public awareness, I wrote an article about how easy it was to find my then- 92-year-old mother's birth certificate.

Frankly, I didn't think finding my mother's birth certificate was possible, given the fact that she had been born in a farmhouse in Storrs, CT, along with nine of her 10 siblings, to parents who didn't speak English. Despairing that she would never be "qualified" to receive the care [in a nursing home] that she desperately needed, I set about to find the document, which I was sure had vanished in the unreliable record-keeping of 1913. When I called the third number, I explained to the woman who answered the phone that I was "asking something impossible." I gave her my mother's first name and her father's last name. Within four minutes, she said, "Here it is!" When I expressed my amazement, the woman said: "That's nothing...we're routinely asked to find birth certificates from the 1800s, and we do that all the time!" Total time it took me to find my mother's 1913, born-in-a-farmhouse birth certificate: 10 minutes!

Obama was born not in 1913, like my mother, but in 1961 — or perhaps in 1957, according to his MySpace page, which would make him 52, born supposedly in Hawaii before it became a state in 1959. So it was quite curious that not one cyber-sleuth could find an authentic, verifiable copy of his original vault-copy birth certificate. I'm not talking about the faux version Obama posted on his website, which was deemed the real thing by, a "truth"-detecting site that is sponsored by the Annenberg Foundation, the same foundation that hired Obama and his terrorist pal William Ayers and gave them millions of dollars for a research project in Chicago. In other words, the least credible source!

Even more significant is that no one in the media thought Obama's missing birth certificate worth even casual mention. Their thinking seemed to be: We're not going to check on his eligibility to be president, if we don't even question why other crucial documents were — and continue to be — sealed? For instance: his baptism certificate; elementary, high school, college and graduate school transcripts; visa(s); selective service record; alleged multiple Social Security numbers; Illinois attorney's license; Illinois State Senate records; law practice client list; Univ. of Chicago scholarly articles; financial records while a community organizer in Chicago; and medical records. I'm also curious about why Michelle Obama's law license was suspended in 1993 by the Illinois Supreme Court, but then again she wasn't running for president.

Instead, the media were frantically busy trying to divert public attention away from those pesky things known as credentials with gossip-driven tabloid reportage of Sarah Palin and Joe the Plumber in order to avoid the bigger-than-Watergate potential scandal of whether or not Obama was eligible — according to the U.S. Constitution — to become President of the United States!


In an explosive interview by Dr. Laurie Roth on her syndicated West Coast radio show on August 7th with Douglas Hagmann — a respected journalist, director of the Northeast Intelligence Network, and longtime private investigator, and Judi McLeod, a prolific journalist and the managing editor of Canada Free Press — the reason for the media blackout about the birth-certificate issue was nothing less than organized Mafia-like dire threats to members of the media issued not only from the heads of major TV and radio stations but also from Federal Communication Commission officials!

According to Hagmann and McLeod, who conducted a nine-month investigation and documented their findings scrupulously, after Obama was elected but before he was inaugurated:

A major TV talk-show host reported that he was ordered not to raise the birth certificate issue or risk losing his job.

FCC officials threatened to yank broadcasting licenses, break up conglomerates, and make the enactment of the Fairness Doctrine "look mild" in comparison to other consequences.

In at least one corporate TV headquarters, memos were circulated to all on-air employees not to mention the birth certificate issue, as well as other specific subjects like Obama's Illinois lawyer's license, his college records, etc., under both implied and explicit threats.

During the interview, Hagmann and McLeod — who never mentioned a particular network by name — alluded to e-mails and other evidence in their possession, copies of which, they said, were secreted in several locations. But they did tantalize listeners with descriptions of meeting with "sources" outside of St. Patrick's Cathedral in New York City, a high-placed contact looking nervously over his shoulder, references to directives and warnings given by "those at the top," and the undisguised threat of one executive to his underlings: "This is serious, and so will the consequences be if anyone chooses not to be a team player with this."
This comes as no surprise to Fox watchers who have noticed that the Stalinist-style censorship of the Obama regime is already here. This couldn't possibly be because of the healthy shares of stock the Saudis bought in Fox, could it? If so, why would the Saudis care so much about quashing potentially damning revelations about Obama? Have they also bought shares in Obama?

Come to think of it, who exactly paid the tuition for Obama's stint at Harvard Law School? What role did Obama's long-time friend, Khalid al-Mansour, a key advisor to a Saudi billionaire, play? Writer Kenneth Timmerman describes al-Mansour as "well known within the black community as a lawyer, an orthodox Muslim, a black nationalist, an author, an international deal-maker, an educator, and an outspoken enemy of Israel." This is not to omit that al-Mansour was originally contacted to intervene with Harvard on Obama's behalf by Percy Sutton, former Manhattan Borough President and the lawyer of Malcolm X. Ah...the tangled web of it all!

Then there is the question of what role was played by Saudi Prince Alwaleed, the nephew of King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia? You remember Prince Alwaleed, who offered then-Mayor Rudy Giuliani $10 million after September 11 if he would only blame America for the terrorist attacks of which 15 of 19 perpetrators were Saudi Arabian — a "gift" the mayor promptly and with appropriate contempt rejected!

In short, what influence have the Saudis exerted on Fox to muzzle the issue of Obama's birth certificate? I don't ask this about the network TV channels or cable channels like CNN and MSNBC, which are still issuing daily hagiographies of Obama.


Just who has been sending "the message"? And how did it permeate not only the media, but also the once-respected U.S. Congress and the courts of our land, including the once-incorruptible Supreme Court? And what menacing forces made the once-courageous conservative media abandon their mission to expose rank corruption and collusion?

Two words: Money Talks!

If you're a media mogul and you get word from the FCC that your license will be pulled immediately and irrevocably if you mention only three words — Obama's birth certificate — poof! You send that word to your employees and tell them that their mega-salaries — in fact, their employment — are on the line.

If you're a conservative talk-show host and you get your boss's directive not to dare to mention three words — Obama's birth certificate — poof! Lips sealed; curiosity zero!

If the money thing doesn't work, there's always the threat thing — i.e., "going public" about tax records, health status, or family secrets. Or be audited by the IRS. Or be investigated by any number of regulatory agencies.

And if the money thing and the threat thing don't work, how about being reminded of all those "accidents" and "unfortunate incidents" — broken kneecaps, missing children, "falls" from buildings, punctured tires — that result not in joblessness or embarrassment but in death?

We know that's how the Mafia works. It's also how political machines work. It's also how community organizers work. Wasn't it Obama himself who in 2008 said ''If They Bring a Knife...We Bring a Gun'' and in 2009 advised his followers to "Get in Their Faces!"?

So determined are Obama's handlers to keep the facts of his parentage and place of birth out of the public domain that, as writer Chelsea Schilling has scrupulously documented, "the Federal Election Commission shows Obama's campaign has made regular payments to Perkins Coie since Jan. 1, 2007 — the month he formed a presidential exploratory committee and only weeks before he formally announced his candidacy for president — [and up to the present] — has paid Perkins Coie, a single law firm, $2.3 crush eligibility lawsuits."

But paying lawyers to quash the dozens of lawsuits that have challenged Obama's eligibility still doesn't answer the question of who exactly is behind the blanket blackout of the media, Congress and courts when it comes to Obama's origins, parentage, credentials, indeed identity.

We certainly can't attribute this massive power play to Obama himself. After all, while "owning" the Congress and the media, he is failing miserably to gain support for his two signature pieces of legislation, cap & tax and healthcare "reform." No one that ineffectual — or, as Jonah Goldberg says, "astoundingly incompetent" — could possibly mute the media, castrate the Congress, and cow the courts.

And we can't attribute the blackout to Obama's union and community organizing buddies. While the former are quite expert at threatening members to fall in line...or else, and the latter have mastered standing outside polling places with glowering facial expressions and menacing Billy clubs, neither has the heft to have compelled the media to roll over, the Congress to say they "know nothing," or the courts to load one side of the scales of justice with rocks and the other side with feathers.


Scholars and historians have documented exhaustively the Left's obsession with (1) the acquisition of power, and (2) transforming America from a free-market, Constitution-respecting, freedom-loving, God-embracing society into a Socialist-cum-Communist "share the wealth" collective that echoes the beliefs and "values" of their heroes Marx and Engels.

But it takes money to bring about the kind of poverty both Socialism and Communism deliver to their masses. The kind of money only a few at the top enjoy while they'd like the rest of us to wait in food lines and appear before death panels of impersonal state functionaries who decide if we're worthy of antibiotics or surgery and, if not, convenient "go-to-sleep" pills.

The kind of money that "talks" — that can buy people off, finance revolutions, launder money, pay to rig voting machines, manipulate allies into positions of power (czars, anyone?), conveniently crash markets (as George Soros did in England in 1992, Asia in 1997, and, I believe, the U.S. in September 2008), make people disappear, make birth certificates and other vital records disappear, and then make sure that an entire media, Congress, and court system is terrified of "going there."

We all know of the many multimillionaires and billionaires — including Soros, the Saudi royal family, et al. — who contributed to Obama's presidential campaign and continue to fund his leftist agenda, all of them with an ideological, religious, or personal stake in his remaining in power. And all of them part of a larger, more ubiquitous conspiracy — yes, conspiracy! — to conceal Obama's origins and true parentage.

Among them, as J.B. Williams has documented, are "international socialists working through CPUSA — SPUSA and DSAUSA, funded by literally hundreds of leftist front-groups operating as special interest 527 organizations. Here's a short list of the BIGGEST leftist front groups: America Coming Together — Joint Victory Campaign 2004 — Media Fund — Service Employees International Union — American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees — — New Democrat Network — Sierra Club — EMILY's List — AFL-CIO — League of Conservation Voters."

Further, Williams asks: "Who spends an obscene $1-billion dollars to win a lousy $400,000-per-year job, and why?"

Richard Poe, award-winning journalist and New York Times-bestselling author, has written extensively on Soros and makes a good case that the Hungarian-born Jew and self-admitted Nazi collaborator is the primary brains and money behind Obama — and, I believe, his healthcare travesty. When President Bush was in office, Poe wrote that Soros talked openly of a "regime change" in the United States.

"What about our country offends Soros so deeply," Poe asked, "that he would tell the BBC — during a time of war — that he means to use all of his power to 'puncture the bubble of American supremacy'"? Poe explained that Soros's Open Society Foundation, founded in 1984, "has spent millions promoting a radical agenda that includes abortion, feminism, gun control, abolition of capital punishment, voting rights for felons, drug legalization, euthanasia and gay marriage rights....the Soros cult preaches secularism, the godless faith of a world without nations, families, loyalty or tradition, a world in which the very words 'mother,' 'father,' 'husband,' 'wife,' 'son' and 'daughter' will be bleached of meaning forever."

Soros, Poe continued, "is one of the world's leading promoters of euthanasia, or 'mercy killing.' Not only does he advocate 'physician-assisted suicide' for patients who choose death voluntarily, he also lobbies for the right of family members or court-appointed guardians to authorize the killing of patients whose wishes are not known." Sounds a lot like the Death Panels Sarah Palin warned about, doesn't it? Soros also founded the Project on Death in America [which] promotes suicide and euthanasia and urges doctors to warehouse terminally ill patients in hospices and give them 'palliative' care ...rather than wasting time, energy and money actually trying to cure them."

Of course, all of these beliefs are eerily echoed in Obama's healthcare legislation, almost as if Soros had dictated the terms. Maybe he did! Maybe that was the price he exacted for financing a large part of Obama's presidential campaign and facilitating the cover-up of Obama's birth certificate and other documents. And maybe that's why Obama is still paying Soros back by recently announcing that he will invest $2 billion (or more) in drilling for oil off the shores of Brazil, where none other than George Soros owns $5.8 million of the Brazilian oil company's U.S.-traded preferred shares of stock!


While Soros may top the list of conspirators who have been trying to topple big, bad, capitalist America for decades, others figure prominently as well, including but not limited to: Noam Chomsky, Louis Farrakhan, Jane Fonda, Tom Hayden, Jesse Jackson, Michael Moore, Cornel West, Ted Turner, former National Security Advisor to Pres. Jimmy Carter Zbigniew Brzezinski, the Rockefeller family, the Carnegie family, and, I might add, Fidel Castro and the cozy cabal of America-loathing Marxist revolutionaries he met with at the Theresa Hotel in Harlem.

Then there are: The Congressional Progressive Caucus (their members here) aka the Democratic Socialists of America, formed by partners from the Communist Party USA and Socialist Party USA (founder: Sen. Bernie Sanders [I-VA]; The Congressional Black Caucus (their members here), originally established and controlled by the Communist Party USA (founder: Cong. John Conyers [D-MI], and now controlled by ACORN and the Democratic Socialists of America; the ACLU, founded in 1917 by Communist Roger Baldwin; the Southern Poverty Law Center — a mini ACLU; the FORD Foundation; the Annenberg Foundation; the NAACP; the Council on Foreign Relations; the Trilateral Commission; numerous labor unions, and of course the mega-rich sheiks of Araby.

While all of the above and many others have worked assiduously to dismantle America, there are probably only a relative handful of aiders and abettors who ushered the modern-day Trojan Horse Barack Obama into America's body politic and were sophisticated and connected and rich and arch enough to have facilitated his path to the U.S. Senate, sealed all of his records both home and abroad, assembled the massive organization for his run for the presidency, and delivered in only seven months the most radical leftwing — actually more Communist than Socialist — agenda in the history of the United States.


McLeod and Hagmann have come very close to explaining a major piece of the conspiracy puzzle — specifically how some in the media were either bribed or threatened into silence vis-à-vis Obama's birth certificate. But the American people have a peculiar resistance to and revulsion for these thuggish tactics. In fact, the birth certificate issue has gained momentum. Why is it not going away, but instead gathering steam?

The huge amount of money Obama has spent on this cover-up is, to most Americans, fishy.

Obama's serial apologies for America as he travels the world have offended Americans and convinced them that no genuine American could or would ever behave in such a way.

Last month, when Army Reserve Major Stefan Frederick Cook sued Obama claiming he was not legally qualified to be President and Commander-in-Chief and therefore was unqualified to give him orders to deploy to Afghanistan, the government rescinded his orders, thereby negating the "standing" Cook no doubt would have had to sue. District Judge Richard Lazzara of Tampa denied Cook's motions as "frivolous and wholly without merit" and then — guess what? — sealed the records! This should have disqualified the judge. In fact, it raised the eyebrows of millions of Americans.

To the public, rescinding Cook's orders was a de facto admission that Obama is not a natural-born American citizen, and it gives rise to the possibility that untold numbers of military enlistees, in the U.S. and around the world, will follow suit. According to one source, as many as 100 lawyers are preparing to file such litigation, and even class-action suits are being considered.

As Obama's poll numbers continue to plunge, more and more people are waking up to his unique lack of qualifications and inability to lead the greatest nation in the world. As Kyle-Ann Shiver has written, "It's as though [in 2008] 59 million Americans joined hands and shouted at the top of their little lungs, 'Yes, We Can March off This Cliff.'" Not anymore!

Writer James Lewis asks: "How do we fight Obama and his psychopathic lust for power?"...and answers: "You fight evil by exposing it.""

Indeed, the American electorate has never been so energized, with millions upon millions of ordinary citizens — many of them seniors with vested interests in avoiding Obama's death panels — attending Tea Parties, Town Hall meetings, and writing and calling their representatives in massive numbers. In addition, people are now speaking openly about the man without a birth certificate. Who is this guy? What is he hiding? Why are media people studiously avoiding this issue? And why are those who "dare" raise it — like Lou Dobbs at CNN — being targeted by far-left groups, many of them funded by George Soros?

Yet in spite of their efforts to conceal the truth about Obama's birth place and parentage, increasing numbers of articles, radio hosts and their callers and regular Americans have lost their amazingly forbearing patience and are now asking and will continue to ask until the question is answered:

(Are you an OPIBOB yet?)

If only liberals were this smart

Note to Congress - Indictments coming! We the People are coming to get you!


(Sure to get a rousing response)

I have just 2 Questions.

But first, let me say this:

Every member of the Legislature, the Executive, and the Judiciary swears allegiance to the Constitution, and every act they do is under the Authority Granted by the Constitution.

Notwithstanding the fact that the CRS (Congressional Research Services), a government sponsored and taxpayer funded ‘think-tank’ for Congress told everyone in Congress that Mr. Soetoro/Obama met the Article II ‘natural-born’ requirements for President, and;

Given the fact that all 535 members of Congress were informed by the hundreds of thousands of emails, letters, and internet websites that:

1. One of California’s electors for the DNC ‘ticket’ had been dead for 6 years, but they counted her vote anyway;

2. There were demands from the people even before the DNC nominated Mr. Soetoro/Obama to be on the ballot in all 50 states that he (and they) prove that he was eligible per Article II, Section 8 of the Constitution;

3. It is Public and Common Knowledge that to be ‘natural-born’, BOTH parents (if married) must be US. Citizens, and we know that his father, from their divorce papers, was not;

Therefore, given the foregoing, and the fact that removing the Usurper would immediately stop the Obamination of the Socialized Drug Care bill they are trying to ram down our throats, my two questions are:

1. Why didn’t you, or any of the other 535 members of Congress, OBJECT to the counting of electoral votes for Mr. Soetoro/Obama on January 8th, 2009 – until he could PROVE that he was Constitutionally eligible?,


2. Why won’t you take action NOW to demand PROOF, like active members of the Military are now doing, that Mr. Soetoro/Obama is able to issue anything other than unlawful orders, which they are sworn not to obey, lest you, along with all members of Congress be charged with misprision* of Treason?

* Misprision: Neglect in preventing or reporting a felony or treason by one not an accessory, but in a lawful position to act on or prevent it.

HAT TIP to Neil B. Turner

There is still hope, real hope, not the ersatz Obama hope. The hope is in getting rid of Obama and that is still possible.

Obama has enlisted law firms across the nation to battle every attempt to access his birth, schooling, immigration or passport records. WHY? Because if these facts are revealed Obama will lose the Presidency.

Obama really isn’t qualified to hold the office of President. He hides his birth certificate, his college papers, his medical records and his passport history.

If Obama can be removed from office, because he is legally ineligible to be President, all bills that he has signed into law will become invalid, including the pork package “Reward Liberal Causes and Constituents Bill” called a Stimulus Bill.

We would all do well to support legal actions to remove Obama from office, to end this ill conceived Stimulus Bill and Helth Care Plan.

Get Rid of Obama = Get Rid of the Pork

Young people have been taken in by a big city con man and will pay for it for the rest of their lives:

No people will tamely surrender their Liberties, nor can any be easily subdued, when knowledge is diffusd and virtue is preservd. On the Contrary, when People are universally ignorant, and debauchd in their Manners, they will sink under their own weight without the Aid of foreign Invaders. --Samuel Adams

While the people are virtuous they cannot be subdued; but once they lose their virtue, they will be ready to surrender their liberties to the first external or internal invader.... If virtue and knowledge are diffused among the people, they will never be enslaved. This will be their great security.It does not require a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless minority keen to set brush fires in people's minds.-- Samuel Adams

Days Away From Economic Chaos?

America is just a few days away from a possible day of reckoning. I again call attention to this day, August 25, when the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation issues its 2nd Quarter report for 2009 on the state of health of American banks.

It has not particularly alarmed Americans that its growth and prosperity have been built upon debt. The American public is a bit desensitized, particularly since the Y2K threat fizzled. We must wait and see how Americans respond to the upcoming FDIC report.

The following charts tell the story. There are roughly 8400 American banks that set aside a small portion of their profits to aggregately insure bank depositors should their local bank fail. A plethora of bank failures has depleted the FDIC reserve fund from $52.8 billion in 2008 to $13 billion in the 1st Quarter of 2009. (See chart below)

The Presidential Approval Index is calculated by subtracting the number who Strongly Disapprove from the number who Strongly Approve. It is updated daily at 9:30 a.m. Eastern.

Recession, Depression and Recovery

Research Help - Maya Soetoro - AKA Obama's Sister

Maya was born August 15, 1970 in Jakarta, Indonesia of an Indonesian father and an American mother.

That we know for sure!

There have been various stories about Maya and her birth certificate, however I have so far found no evidence to support these stories

Maya and her mother returned to Honolulu in 1973 for three years.

Dunham took young Maya back to Indonesia in 1976 to live with Soetoro's mother, while Barack moved into his grandparents' apartment

Maya enrolled at the Jakarta International School and then, at age 14, returned in 1984 to enter Punahou in Honolulu, graduating in 1988.

She is reported to be an American citizen.

Did her American mother automatically confer American citizenship on Maya even though she was born in Indonesia and had an Indonesian father?

Does anyone have documentation that Maya is an American citizen?

If she is authentically an American citizen by what means did she obtain citizenship.

I am looking for documentation not theories or opinions.

Pull the plug on ObamaCare-Peggy Noonan-WSJ

Looking back, this must have been the White House health-care strategy:

Health care as a subject is extraordinarily sticky, messy and confusing. It's inherently complicated, and it's personal. There are land mines all over the place. Don't make the mistake the Clintons made and create a plan that gets picked apart, shot down, and injures the standing of the president. Instead, push it off on Congress. Let them come up with a dozen plans. It will keep them busy. It will convince them yet again of their importance and autonomy. It will allow them to vent, and perhaps even exhaust, their animal spirits. Various items and elements within each bill will get picked off by the public. Fine, that's to be expected. The bills may in fact yield a target-rich environment. Fine again. Maybe health care's foes will get lost in the din and run out of ammo. Maybe they'll exhaust their animal spirits, too.

Summer will pass, the fight confined to the public versus Congress. And at the end, in the fall, the beauty part: The president swoops in and saves the day, forcing together an ultimate and more moderate plan that doesn't contain the more controversial elements but does constitute a successful first step toward universal health care.

That's not what happened.


Must-Read Evaluation of ObamaCare

Must-Read Evaluation of ObamaCare
By Nancy Matthis Friday, August 21st, 2009 at 7:15 pm

If your doctor saves your life in defiance of ObamaCare guidelines, he could be severely fined and go to prison.

The following article is the most qualified and articulate evaluation of ObamaCare extant on the web, having been written by an MD who is an expert on health care cost containment. It has been circulated by viral email and republished in many places. To ensure giving our readers an uncorrupted original, I requested a copy from the author. He very kindly responded within an hour of receiving my request this afternoon. His following statement is of life-and-death importance to every US citizen. Read this, and share it as widely as possible.

By David H. Janda M.D.

As a physician who has authored books on Preventative Health Care and Health Care Cost Containment, I was recently given the opportunity to be the keynote speaker at a Congressional Dinner at The Capitol Building in Washington D.C… The presentation, entitled Health Care Reform; The Power & Profit of Prevention was well received. In preparation for the presentation, I read the latest version of “reform” as authored by The Obama Administration and supported by Speaker Pelosi and Senator Reid. It is important to realize that The Obama Health Care Plan is comprised of two parts…..that’s right, not one but two parts.
The first part of The Obama Health Care Plan was buried in The Stimulus Bill which was signed into law by the President in February (see READ the STIMULUS). It is the second part of The Health Care Plan which is now being debated in Congress. Below is the link to the over 1000 page document….. Bill Text, Adobe PDF format.
Let me summarize just a few salient points of the two part Obama Health Care Plan. Warning……. They need to put the same warning on The Obama Health Care Plan as they do a pack of cigarettes…..Consuming this product WILL be hazardous to your health. The underlying method of cutting costs throughout the plan is based on rationing and denying care, NOT PREVENTING health care need. The plan’s method is the most inhumane and unethical approach in cutting costs. The rationing of care is implemented through a Council, equivalent to the National Health Care Board in the British Health Care System. The name given to this panel is The Federal Coordinating Council For Comparative Effectiveness Research (”Federal Council”). (Section 9201 H.R. 1 Version of the Stimulus Bill.)
President Obama has already appointed the fifteen member Federal Council. According to the Stimulus Bill, p. 152, all members of the Council must be “senior federal officers or employees.” Thus, medical treatment will be dispensed by a group of bureaucrats from their ivory towers, not by the hands-on practitioners in the presence of the patients. The council was funded with $1.1 BILLION from The Stimulus Bill. (Source.)
“Comparative Effectiveness Research” is based on the formula of the approval or rejection of treatment for patients based upon the cost per treatment divided by the number of years the patient will benefit from the treatment.
According to former New York Lieutenant Governor and Health Policy Analyst Dr. Betsy McCaughey, the Federal Council will set a cost effectiveness standard for treatment. (Stimulus Bill p. 464) Translation…..if you are over 65 or have been recently diagnosed as having an advanced form of cardiac disease or aggressive cancer, dream on if you think you will get treated…..pick out your box. Oh, you say…this could never happen. Sorry….this is the same model they use in Britain. The plan also empowers the Federal Council to create another level of bureaucracy, The Center for Comparative Effectiveness Research. (Health Care Bill, Section 1181, p. 502). The effect of this extra level of bureaucracy is to slow the development of new medications and technologies in order to reduce costs. How special is that! The plan also outlines that doctors and hospitals will be overseen and reviewed by The National Coordinator of Health Information Technology. This “Coordinator” will be responsible for monitoring treatments to make sure doctors and hospitals are strictly following what the government deems appropriate and cost effective, and to “guide medical decisions at the time and place of care.” (Stimulus Bill, p. 116; see also pp. 442, 446).
The Stimulus Bill goes on to say that hospitals and doctors that are NOT “meaningful users” of the new systems will face penalties. The Secretary of Health and Human Services will be empowered to impose “more stringent measures of meaningful use over time.” (Stimulus Bill pp. 366, 478, 511, 518, 540, 541.) According to those in Congress, penalties could include large six figure financial fines and possible imprisonment. According to the Obama Plan, if your doctor saves your life but breaks government protocol, you might have to go to the prison to see your doctor for follow-up appointments. I believe this is the same model Stalin used in the former Soviet Union. Section 102 of the Health Care Plan has the Orwellian title: “Protecting the Choice to Keep Current Coverage.” What this section really mandates is that it is ILLEGAL for you to keep your private insurance if your status changes, e.g., if you lose or change your job, become a senior citizen, graduate from college and land your first job. Yes, illegal. When President Obama was asked about this portion of his plan recently, his response was, “I am not familiar with that part of the plan.”
Obama hosted a conference call with bloggers urging them to pressure Congress to pass his health plan as soon as possible. During the call, a blogger from Maine said he kept running into an Investors Business Daily article that claimed Section 102 of the House health legislation would outlaw private insurance. He asked: “Is this true? Will people be able to keep their insurance and will insurers be able to write new policies even though H.R. 3200 is passed?” President Obama replied: “You know, I have to say that I am not familiar with the provision you are talking about.”
Then there is Section 1233 of the Health Care Bill, devoted to “Advanced Care Planning.” After each American turns 65 years of age they have to go to a mandated counseling program that is designed to end life sooner. This session is to occur every 5 years unless the person has developed a chronic illness then it must be done every year. The topics in this government run session will include how to decline hydration, nutrition and how to initiate hospice care. It is no wonder the Obama Administration does NOT like my emphasis on Prevention. Under the Health Care Plan for cost containment, Prevention is the “enemy,” since people would live longer. I rest my case….The Health Care Plan authored by Obama / Pelosi / Reid is hazardous to the health of every American. In the question/answer session following my Capitol Hill presentation, a Congressman asked: “I am doing a number of network interviews next week on the Obama Health Care Plan. If I am asked what is the one word to describe the plan, what should I answer?” The answer is simple, honest, direct, analytical, and sad, but truthful. The word is FASCIST.

According to a 15-year study presented at the Toronto Indoor Air Conference, women who work at home have a 54% higher death rate from cancer than those who work away from home.

The study concluded that this was a direct result of the increased exposure to toxic chemicals, many of which are found in common household products.

More than 9 out of every 10 suspected poison exposures occur at home with household products. * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

The mysteryof Obama's birth


The mysteryof Obama's birth

Exclusive: Joseph Farah pokes holes in president's peculiar 'nativity story'
Posted: August 20, 20091:00 am Eastern
By Joseph Farah

Winston Churchill described Russia as "a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma."
The birth of Barack Obama could be similarly characterized.
The more we learn, the less we know.

Those who want to accept, at face value, the president's assertion that he was born in Honolulu Aug. 4, 1961, to Barack Obama Sr. and Stanley Ann Dunham say asking questions about the president's constitutional eligibility is crazy because "you don't have any evidence to challenge it."

Try going to the Department of Motor Vehicles to get a driver's license without any documents and tell the clerk he or she doesn't have any evidence that you're not qualified to drive.
That's not the way it works. The onus should be on the person claiming the highest office in the land to provide the evidence that he is eligible.

So far, Obama has not provided even a shred of evidence to suggest he is qualified.

Last I checked, the Annenberg Foundation's is not the duly appointed, constitutionally approved agency designated to determine whether U.S. president's are eligible for office. Last I checked, no public health department bureaucrat in the state of Hawaii is responsible for determining who is constitutionally eligible to be president of the United States. Last I checked, it wasn't up to Keith Olbermann to make that determination either.

Now watch the red-hot eligibility story on DVD: "The Question of Eligibility: Is Barack Obama's presidency constitutionally legitimate?"

Part of the problem, of course, lies with those who should take this matter seriously – the Congress of the United States, the Federal Elections Commission, the Supreme Court, the Electoral College, the secretaries of state that supervised elections.

It's clear now, nobody checked – not Obama, anyway.

The Senate of the United States, to its credit, did hold hearings on the eligibility of John McCain. But to its everlasting discredit, it failed to hold Obama to the same standard.
Where's the evidence?

Indeed, where's the evidence that any controlling legal authority in America verified Obama was constitutionally eligible? There is none. And that's the problem.

There is, however, increasing evidence that Obama's nativity story is not what it was cracked up to be in the candidate's autobiography.

WND has been investigating that story for 11 months – and it becomes more of a riddle, a mystery, an enigma as each layer is peeled away.

What do we know about his parentage? Not much. We've never seen a marriage certificate. We've never seen a legitimate birth certificate. All we've seen in a divorce decree.

Even if we take Obama at his word and accept his "certification of live birth," a document easily accessible through fraud, the information contained thereon would lead me to believe, based strictly on the applicable laws, that he is not eligible. His "father" was a foreigner. His mother was too young to bestow natural born citizenship on a son. On the face of it, even a domestic birth would not qualify him as constitutionally eligible.

Yet, there is no conclusive documentation even to support those assertions – and lots of reasons to doubt them.

Recently, WND documented that Stanley Ann Dunham was in Seattle two weeks after Obama's alleged birth date. How did she get there with a newborn son – when airlines until 1972 prohibited travel by children less than 6 weeks old?

WND also documented that Barack Obama Sr. and Dunham never lived together as man and wife. Was this some kind of marriage of convenience? Was it a marriage at all?

WND also documented that no hospital claims the birth – not even the one Obama has asserted as his birth hospital.

WND also documented that Hawaii changed its own regulations about the suitability of "certifications of live birth" as evidence of actual births in the state for certain programs after WND pointed out these inconsistencies.

I guess we could just overlook all this.

I guess we could just forget about it all and "move on."

I guess we could just say, "Hey, we don't want to create a constitutional crisis – let's stop digging, let's stop asking questions."

But that's not me. It's not my nature. I love the Constitution. And I love truth.

So, as for me, I will keep peeling the onion.

The Death Book for Veterans

Ex-soldiers don't need to be told they're a burden to society.


If President Obama wants to better understand why America's discomfort with end-of-life discussions threatens to derail his health-care reform, he might begin with his own Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). He will quickly discover how government bureaucrats are greasing the slippery slope that can start with cost containment but quickly become a systematic denial of care.

Last year, bureaucrats at the VA's National Center for Ethics in Health Care advocated a 52-page end-of-life planning document, "Your Life, Your Choices." It was first published in 1997 and later promoted as the VA's preferred living will throughout its vast network of hospitals and nursing homes. After the Bush White House took a look at how this document was treating complex health and moral issues, the VA suspended its use. Unfortunately, under President Obama, the VA has now resuscitated "Your Life, Your Choices."

Who is the primary author of this workbook? Dr. Robert Pearlman, chief of ethics evaluation for the center, a man who in 1996 advocated for physician-assisted suicide in Vacco v. Quill before the U.S. Supreme Court and is known for his support of health-care rationing.

"Your Life, Your Choices" presents end-of-life choices in a way aimed at steering users toward predetermined conclusions, much like a political "push poll." For example, a worksheet on page 21 lists various scenarios and asks users to then decide whether their own life would be "not worth living."

The circumstances listed include ones common among the elderly and disabled: living in a nursing home, being in a wheelchair and not being able to "shake the blues." There is a section which provocatively asks, "Have you ever heard anyone say, 'If I'm a vegetable, pull the plug'?" There also are guilt-inducing scenarios such as "I can no longer contribute to my family's well being," "I am a severe financial burden on my family" and that the vet's situation "causes severe emotional burden for my family."

When the government can steer vulnerable individuals to conclude for themselves that life is not worth living, who needs a death panel?

One can only imagine a soldier surviving the war in Iraq and returning without all of his limbs only to encounter a veteran's health-care system that seems intent on his surrender.

I was not surprised to learn that the VA panel of experts that sought to update "Your Life, Your Choices" between 2007-2008 did not include any representatives of faith groups or disability rights advocates. And as you might guess, only one organization was listed in the new version as a resource on advance directives: the Hemlock Society (now euphemistically known as "Compassion and Choices").

This hurry-up-and-die message is clear and unconscionable. Worse, a July 2009 VA directive instructs its primary care physicians to raise advance care planning with all VA patients and to refer them to "Your Life, Your Choices." Not just those of advanced age and debilitated condition—all patients. America's 24 million veterans deserve better.

Many years ago I created an advance care planning document called "Five Wishes" that is today the most widely used living will in America, with 13 million copies in national circulation. Unlike the VA's document, this one does not contain the standard bias to withdraw or withhold medical care. It meets the legal requirements of at least 43 states, and it runs exactly 12 pages.

After a decade of observing end-of-life discussions, I can attest to the great fear that many patients have, particularly those with few family members and financial resources. I lived and worked in an AIDS home in the mid-1980s and saw first-hand how the dying wanted more than health care—they wanted someone to care.

If President Obama is sincere in stating that he is not trying to cut costs by pressuring the disabled to forgo critical care, one good way to show that commitment is to walk two blocks from the Oval Office and pull the plug on "Your Life, Your Choices." He should make sure in the future that VA decisions are guided by values that treat the lives of our veterans as gifts, not burdens.

Mr. Towey, president of Saint Vincent College, was director of the White House Office of Faith-Based Initiatives (2002-2006) and founder of the nonprofit Aging with Dignity.

Let me get this straight.

Let me get this straight.

Obama's health care plan will be written by a committee whose head says he doesn't
understand it, passed by a Congress that hasn't read it, signed by a president who smokes, funded by a treasury chief who did not pay his taxes, overseen by a surgeon general who is obese, and financed by a country that is nearly broke.
What possibly could go wrong with this picture?

Quote of the day

"What you're doing here is evil," you cry out. "You're trying to take the place of God!"

"Sir, this is a government building!" says the chairwoman, shocked. "There's no God here."

America is in trouble! - Hope is a tattered flag

Hope is a tattered flag and a dream of time.
Hope is a heartspun word, the rainbow, the shadblow in white
The evening star inviolable over the coal mines,
The shimmer of northern lights across a bitter winter night,
The blue hills beyond the smoke of the steel works,
The birds who go on singing to their mates in peace, war, peace,
The ten-cent crocus bulb blooming in a used-car salesroom,
The horseshoe over the door, the luckpiece in the pocket,
The kiss and the comforting laugh and resolve—
Hope is an echo, hope ties itself yonder, yonder.
The spring grass showing itself where least expected,
The rolling fluff of white clouds on a changeable sky,
The broadcast of strings from Japan, bells from Moscow,
Of the voice of the prime minister of Sweden carried
Across the sea in behalf of a world family of nations
And children singing chorals of the Christ child
And Bach being broadcast from Bethlehem, Pennsylvania
And tall skyscrapers practically empty of tenants
And the hands of strong men groping for handholds
And the Salvation Army singing God loves us….

Carl Sandburg

America is in trouble!

When citizens who question public officials and their proposed policies are called "un-American" or a "mob," as a method of squelching their legitimate concerns, the freedoms that we have long enjoyed are in danger.

The following link is to an interesting article. It explains a strategy that uses demonization and personal attacks on anyone who questions the policies of those in power.

Anyone who has stood up at a "Town Hall" meeting and questioned the wisdom, need, or financial viability of socialized health care has been labeled as a Nazi or a racist. This troubles me. When free Americans are denigrated for asking serious questions of our government officials, then the whole idea of free speech comes under attack. People who have questioned the proposed socialized health care plan have been called "angry mobs" and "un-American." I offer as examples, the following:

The following is a sad, but probably true commentary that ought to be covered in all world history classes:

When the Nazis came for the communists,
I remained silent;
I was not a communist.

When they locked up the social democrats,
I remained silent;
I was not a social democrat.

When they came for the trade unionists,
I did not speak out;
I was not a trade unionist.

When they came for the Jews,
I remained silent;
I wasn't a Jew.

When they came for me,
there was no one left to speak out.

Our nation is undergoing many changes, some of which are being imposed on us by those who think that government is the solution to all of our problems. I'll leave it for you to decide. Personally, I hope and pray that things will change, but not in the vague way that "Hope and Change" were sold to 52% of the voters last November. Just think, if 3.5% had understood what they were actually voting for, things might have turned out differently.

Border Invasion Videos

Hat tip to

Dear Friends,

Before I close the work week I wanted to alert you to some amazing developments.

This week, while in Mexico for his little pow-wow with President Calderon and Prime Minister Harper, President Obama reminded us that he is still committed to amnesty. He has asked the Department of Homeland Security to work with Congress on a bill that would allow a path to citizenship to those who "live in the shadows."

But the amazing part of his statement was "[Getting the bill passed] is going to be difficult. It is going to require bipartisan cooperation." Then Obama added, on foreign soil, "There are demagogues out there who try to suggest that any form of pathway for legalization for those already in the United States is unacceptable."

Those demagogues are you, me and most Americans. So why does he think it will be so hard to pass? Because there are more "demagogues" (I prefer the term "Patriots" myself) in this country who understand exactly what amnesty is and know the damage it will do this country than there are open-border fanatics who would sell out this country in a nano-second.

Secondly, we learned this week that we seem to be losing all our wars. In Afghanistan the Taliban appears to have the upper hand, and in Mexico the drug cartels are more powerful than ever, and their influence among the people is growing.

One of the most violent cartels is now in control of Nuevo Laredo, which sits directly across the border from Laredo, TX. The Gulf Cartel and their enforcement arm, the Zetas, known as "The Company" by US authorities, dominate the drug trafficking through eastern Mexico that flows into the US.

In light of this I found it particularly astounding to read that Homeland Security's Queen Napolitano, told USA Today: "Whenever I hear somebody say, 'The border is out of control!' I know that that's somebody who's just trying to gin people up because, in reality, there is way more physical infrastructure, technology and manpower down there than there ever was. It's changed remarkably, and it is very, very difficult to cross illegally."

Someone needs to tell that to the illegals pouring into this country!!

Friends of mine have secretly placed a camera on a number of different Arizona routes that drug runners and human smugglers use to enter this country. I am sending you a short video summarizing just a few weeks of recent activity along this route. It is a must see!! "Difficult to cross?" Hardly!! Click Here to View

Our border is wide open-and a greater threat to our security than ever before. And the lady in charge-and her boss in the White House-are in denial!!

Send this video to as many people as you know-including your congressman. Let the facts tell the story. We must get our border defended!!. And be ready for another fight against amnesty.

Will Washington ever learn? America wants its borders protected and its laws enforced! Or do they even care?

Have a great weekend and stay strong. We need to take our country back and it will take all of us working together.

All the best,

Bay Buchanan

Getting Rid of AKA Obama

Many of you are interested stopping AKA Obama's war against America by indicting him through forming Citizen Grand Juries.

That is worthy and obtainable goal. However, there are many twists and turns to this issue. There have been mistakes made in researching the charges against him by certain "eligibility" attorneys. There have been mistakes made in the way Citizen Grand Juries have been formed.

Having heartfelt efforts result in failure because of technicalities is disheartening.

Over the past months I have made my mistakes along with other sincerely motivated people.
I recently updated and revised my hugely popular "OMG" article that has been reposted on more than 100 web sites and published by Intellectual Conservative.

The full spectrum of evidence that can be used by Citizen Grand Juries to get rid of AKA Obama is contained in the 6816 carefully researched words.

Instructions on how to successfully convene Citizens Grand Juries are also included.

“For nothing is hid that shall not be made manifest, nor anything secret that shall not be known and come to light.” Luke 8:17

AKA Obama -32% approve 41% disapprove

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Sunday shows that 32% of the nation's voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. Forty-one percent (41%) Strongly Disapprove giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -9 (see trends).

Natural Born Citizenship: Statutory versus Constitutional

Phil has a very important post at his blog:

“Conservatives” Are Single-Largest Ideological Group

“Conservatives” Are Single-Largest Ideological Group

PRINCETON, NJ -- Thus far in 2009, 40% of Americans interviewed in national Gallup Poll surveys describe their political views as conservative, 35% as moderate, and 21% as liberal. This represents a slight increase for conservatism in the U.S. since 2008, returning it to a level last seen in 2004. The 21% calling themselves liberal is in line with findings throughout this decade, but is up from the 1990s.

Amateur Forensics - What is wrong with this?

Leave you observations in the comments section.
The amateur sleuths did a fine job of spotting the suspicious aspects of this document.

We know that the Nordyke twins were born in a Hawaiian hospital. The long form birth certificates for the Nordyke twins have been released to the public. Yet, their birth announcement is nowhere to be found.

However, the birth announcement for AKA Obama is there for all to see even though there is no long form birth certificate for AKA Obama.

One could reasonable assume that the birth announcement for the Nordyke twins was removed and replaced with a bogus AKA Obama announcement.


From Mr. Usually Reliable "The big news is not that the announcement is a fake. Before the end of the week more documentation will be available".
UPDATE: DEC 11/09:
The authenticity of the announcement is now solid. It doesn't really prove anything other than an annoucement was published, but one more minor mystery has been solved.

SATIRE:Congress To Bomb Two U.S. Cities

Amends for Hiroshima: Congress To Bomb Two U.S. Cities
By Groupthink

In a belated expression of remorse for the nuclear strikes on Hiroshima and Nagasaki sixty years ago, Congress has authorized the Army to launch apologetic nuclear strikes on two American cities. The selection of cities is not final, but they will most likely be Dallas and Houston in a nod to the Democratic desire to attack cities in a "red" state.

Former President and legendary humanitarian Jimmy Carter explained, "While sitting next to my good friend Michael Moore at the Democratic National Convention, he reminded me of his words about 9/11: 'If someone did this to get back at Bush, then they did so by killing thousands of people who DID NOT VOTE for him!' So, it only seemed natural to make amends for Hiroshima and to equalize the 9/11 impact by recommending a strike against two cities in Texas.
"I know from my experience in working with Iran that the United States provokes other nations. And we in fact provoked Japan into WWII -- and despite their repeated willingness to cease hostilities, we firebombed Tokyo, killed their suicide pilots, prevented them from violently occupying all of Asia, got angry when they tortured and killed thousands of our troops, accused them of collaborating with Nazis, and finally, without any reason, gratuitously dropped nuclear weapons on them.

The legislation's sponsor, Representative John Conyers of Michigan, pointed out that The White Man's Bomb was an affront to every sense of racial harmony -- and that it would have been a violation of the 1964 Civil Rights Act. He added, "Instead of dropping bombs, we should have extended a concerned hand towards Japan and asked them, 'Why do you hate us?'" So now, sixty years later, we ask, "Can you forgive us?" And is there any other way to ask forgiveness than to incinerate two of our own cities?

AKA Obama Steps Up War Against America!

ObamaWar against Common Sense, ObamaWar Against our Bodies, Minds and Children
Obama Steps Up War Against America and We-the-People

By Sher Zieve Friday, August 14, 2009

Obama has made it crystal clear that he intends to control and limit the American populace. He is establishing his own pre-crimes division (watch the video-link below). Ostensibly, this is only for terrorists (the same ones to whom he recently gave US Constitutional rights?). But, with Obama’s recent tirades against the American people and his SEIU goons beating up those protesting their own imprisonment and demise via ObamaCare, I strongly doubt it.

Then, through his DHS Chief Janet Napolitano arbitrarily waving her hands against existing US law with her statement “We are not going to sit by at the Department of Homeland Security and wait for a change in the laws. We’re going to enforce the laws that are, but we can reform what we’re doing as we wait for reform in the law, and that is exactly what’s going on” he reinforces his ’we won’t follow any law if we don’t like it and it doesn’t serve my purpose’. This is called an ObamaWar tactic used in the strategy of…drip by drip…removing liberty and freedom from the American people.

ObamaWar against Common Sense
Note: Napolitano says that the ObamaAdmin won’t wait for the laws to change, but…then they will enforce the laws on the books…but they won’t really because they won’t “sit by at DHS and wait for a change in the laws.” Napolitano has now officially earned he Ph.D in Double, Triple, Quadruple ObamaTalk. Congratulations, Jan! This is called ObamaWar against common sense.

ObamaWar Against our Solvency
Obama’s first “stimulus package” stimulated nothing and no one save Obama, his now nationalized banks and his adherents. And whence did this “stimulus” money come? Answer: From the American taxpayer, of course. The lion’s share of the first ObamaStimulus (about 90%) has not even been spent and the ObamaAdmin refuses to tell us what it has done or is doing with the rest our money. And, guess what? One of our Dictator-in-Chief’s economists--Laura Tyson--says he should steal even more money from us with, yet, another stimulus package. Holy smokes!

Our tyrannical ruler is, also, pushing hard to instill his Cap ’N Tax bill that will do nothing to help the environment but, will do EVERYTHING to continue Obama’s planned bleeding of We-the-People’s money. The increase in electrical rates will be extreme and even Obama said--prior to his selection as POTUS--”under my plan of a Cap and Trade system, electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket.” This is an ObamaWar tactic used to remove more money from We-the-People, in order to bring us to our forced-dependent knees.

ObamaWar Against our Bodies, Minds and Children
That takes us to ObamaCare, which will--in fact--do little to nothing to affect health care reform. Per H.R. 3200 (aka ObamaCare) it will, however (amongst hundreds if not thousands of other similar Imperial dictates) eliminate private health insurance (P 16, lines 3-26), ration health care (P 29, lines 4-16), government committee denial of health care (P 30), direct and mandatory government access to US citizen’s private bank accounts (P 59, lines 21-24), inclusion of illegal immigrants (PPS 50-51), mandatory death planning (PPS 425-430) and actor and conservative columnist Chuck Norris notes that P 838 of this terrifying-to-humans bill provides for mandatory “home visitations” from ObamaAdherents in order to tell couples with children how they must raise their children. It was the Communist Lenin who said “Give us the child for eight years and it will be a Bolshevik forever!” These are only a few examples of this draconian and Orwellian bill. This is ObamaWar waged against the elderly, your ability to store away any and all “nest eggs,” ALL of your choices and even your ability to raise your own children the way you wish.

ObamaWar Against American’s Free Speech
And now, any and all of us who oppose or even question ObamaCare are being called “Nazis” (by Obama’s Speaker of the House Democrat Pelosi, are told to SHUT UP by Dictator-in-Chief Obama and now this same Obama has sent out his SEIU Rent-A-Thugs to beat up the opposition at Town Hall meetings. This man is no US President, folks. He is a despot. He has also arranged for multiple multi-million dollar campaigns to push his patently damaging to all Americans (except he and his family and his friends, Congress and multiple Union employees who will NOT be subject to this fetid bill) message on ObamaCare in a series of television advertisements. This is ObamaWar against We-the-People on so many fronts that it’s hard to keep up with it!

Although many Congress people are no longer beholden to their constituents but only to Obama have decided to cancel their townhall meetings, please keep on attending the ones still being held. With Obama’s declared all-out war against the American people, his now-in-freefall descending approval ratings and members of Congress running from us it’s obvious that they are feeling the heat of our dissent. Let’s keep it up and give them no quarter. It’s time to take our country back from all of those--regardless of political party--who would continue to enslave us. The liberty movement is finally on the move. Keep it going and growing, folks! If we fail, all of us will be owned by the new Overseer Class in Washington D.C.

You Might Be a Birther if...

You Might Be a Birther if...
By Kyle-Anne Shiver

Please call me skeptical. It's a label I proudly wear. Since my first day of second grade, when I traded my homemade chocolate-chip cookies for a smooth-talking fourth-grader's out-of-ink ballpoint pen, I've been a wary consumer.

So, if a presidential candidate tries to hand me a barebones certificate of live birth in lieu of a valid, long-form birth certificate, my skeptical antennae go on alert. I automatically question his motives and whether or not he may be trying to play a little fast and loose with the U.S. Constitution. When that same president purportedly spends over a million dollars on legal fees, merely to keep a simple document sealed, then I'm starting to become curiouser and curiouser.

All in all, though, I might be able to get past the whole long-form birth certificate issue if this president had released the whole host of other life documentation, generally required for high-level job applications.

To whit, what is in the following documents that might diminish the Obama "narrative," as sold to the public by marketing guru, David Axelrod, and a strangely incurious media?

Panahou Academy school records, 5th through 12th grades
Occidental College records, including financial aid information.
Columbia University records, including the missing senior thesis and financial aid information.
Harvard University records, including information on how a student who never wrote anything (that can be found) was elected president of the prestigious law review, and including information on how Harvard Law School was afforded by humble community agitator, Barack Obama.
Obama's Illinois state senate records and papers, mysteriously lost.

No man or woman in this Country today could successfully apply for a high-level executive position with any corporation without submitting this meager documentation to prove the statements made in a job application. No president in the past 30 years has been permitted this level of secrecy about his life. Yet, today we have a sitting president who has provided none of it. In lieu of actual documents, the American public has a "narrative" created by PR guru, turned political operative, David Axelrod.

It is this veritable information vacuum that feeds the birth certificate inquiries.

This ain't rocket science. It ain't even first-year-law-school tough.

If there is a simple legal issue at stake, and the defendant has the incontrovertible proof that would settle the issue, then all the defendant need do is produce the proof in court or in public. Case closed. Issue settled.

Go back to sleep now, boys and girls.

Unfortunately, President Obama and his insolent, adolescent press secretary, Bobby Gibbs, have decided to play dodgeball with the birth-certificate issue. Rather than just - quite simply -- provide the detailed birth certificate, signed by the attending physician, issued by the hospital where the birth occurred, Bobby and Barry have chosen to mock those asking for the proof.

When asked in July why this issue continues to simmer and raise its ugly head again and again, Bobby Gibbs offered this, now quite-trite response: "For $15 anyone can buy an internet address and say anything they want," calling the whole birth certificate brouhaha "made-up, fictional nonsense."

Why those silly, silly Birthers. Thinking that a president might try to bamboozle the American public! Has anything ever seemed so foolish, so imbecilic, so deranged!

Let me see, now. Have I ever been bamboozled by an American president?

LBJ: "I will never send American boys to fight in Vietnam."

Richard Nixon: "I am not a crook."

Bill Clinton: "I did not have sexual relations with that woman."

So, with all my little heart and soul, I want to believe both Barry and Bobby, but I'm still wanting the actual proof. And contrary to all protestations to the contrary, the current president's valid, long-form birth certificate, with all the pertinent details of his birth and legal signatures, has not been released by the state of Hawaii because permission to release it has - as of this very minute - not been granted by Barack Hussein Obama.

For all of us common citizens, who well remember having been bamboozled by former presidents, I've compiled a short list of what it takes to make one a Birther. You might want to see if your own skepticism warrants your inclusion in this growing number of "conspiracy nuts."

You might be a Birther believe that the U.S. Constitution is still relevant. Most lawyers I know are quite the sticklers for legalese and detail. There is a simple, plainly-worded clause in the U.S. Constitution regarding the qualifications for the office of the presidency.

Article 2; Section 1:

No person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty-five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.

A fourth-grader could understand this. Surely anyone, who wants to be president, and who is himself a lawyer, could read it and know what it means.

However, I'm inclined at this point, to question whether this president is a stickler for detail. Any lawyer, who goes on record surmising that police officers "acted stupidly," when he knows only scant details of an arrest incident, and openly admits that the person arrested is a personal friend, and that the details he knows came from his friend, is not like any lawyer I know. In fact, since Barack Obama assumed the presidency, he has shown over and over and over again an alarming disregard for the truth, especially in the details.

If you agree, then you might actually be a Birther.

You might be a Birther ascribe to the rule of law. The law is the law. You can go through proper channels to change it, but if you respect the rule of law, you accept it, abide by it and until it is legally changed, you do not attempt to dodge it. The president is the chief law enforcement officer of the United States of America. When a president - any president - abridges the Constitution, even in the minutest of ways, it is a most egregious matter.

Our founders were quite intellectual men of reason, and possessed of uncommon foresight. They recognized that they were forming an imperfect union and knew that changes would be necessary with the passage of time. To this end, they established a formal process for amending our Constitution to meet the needs of a changing America. The process is necessarily cumbersome and difficult, requiring a great deal of public support.

Many now believe that the "natural-born citizen" clause is outdated and meaningless. Fine. All these folks need do is begin the process of passing a formal Constitutional Amendment, which would change the rule of law by which we choose our presidents. Until then, the rule of law is as stated in Article 2, Section 1.

You might actually be a Birther if you believe in the rule of law.

You might be a Birther now have a feeling in your gut that the narrative used to elect a president was a bit off the mark in substantive ways. You may have been a moderate, who bought candidate Obama's conciliatory voice of moderation and intelligence, as eloquently displayed again and again on the campaign trail. But now that you've witnessed one leftist power play after another coming from the President, you're thinking you may have been misled. At the very least, you may be a Birther if you simply would like the president, who promised you transparency, to actually deliver a modicum of the stuff.

As for me, I'm no wacko. Nor am I believing much of anything this president says now, because he's been caught in so many exaggerations, so many outright lies, so many contortions of the truth, that anyone still trusting him on even small matters, might lack a decent amount of common sense.

The American system of government was designed upon an open acknowledgement of the unsavory elements of human nature. Our system is designed to be skeptical and demand proof.

To those who now calculate the political ramifications of making this simple request for records, I'm prone to ask myself when good old American civics died. There is nothing whatsoever political involved in this, except what the President, his own press secretary and leftist media hounds have made of it themselves. Have we all become nothing higher on the citizen scale than political operatives, gauging our words in accord with what effect they may have upon an electoral contest in the future? If so, we may be accomplices in the murder of American civics, plain and simple.

At this juncture, every single American of every political stripe might want to claim the title, "Birther." It is, after all, as American as apple pie to simply and politely say, "Show me."
