“All war is based on deception.” - Sun Tzu
I received a video via e-mail yesterday and it kind of changed the way I think about the whole “birth certificate” argument. I believe there are literally hundreds of reasons that should prevent Barack Hussein Obama’s re-election chances so I have not focused too much energy on the whole citizenship hoopla. I understand that makes me a bit late to the table with this line of thought so please forgive me if you’ve heard a lot of this information before.
My focus is no longer on whether or not Barack Hussein Obama is a legal citizen of the United States of America. Instead, I find myself asking the question “why him?” Why Barack Obama? Take a look at the chart below. Listed are EIGHT separate attempts to alter or eliminate the citizenship requirement of a President of the United States from the Constitution. Click on the title of the specific bill to read it in it’s entirety.

|September 3, 2003||H.J. Res. 67||John Conyers (D-MI)|
|February 25, 2004||Senate Bill 2128||Don Nickles (R-OK) (Bill deemed “undefined”)|
|September 15, 2004||H. J. Res. 104||Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA)|
|January 4, 2005||H. J. Res. 2||John Conyers (D-MI) AGAIN!!|
|February 1, 2005||H. J. Res 15||Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA) AGAIN!!!|
|April 14, 2005||H. J. Res 42||Vic Snyder (D-Ark) Retired AGAIN!!!|
|February 28, 2008||Senate Bill 2678||Claire McCaskill (D-MO)|
Eight attempts in just 22 months to get a part of the Constitution amended or eliminated. Why go after something so vehemently that we had all kind of taken for granted for just a shade over 22 decades? In one of the most ridiculous things I’ve ever read, Senate Bill 511 validates the citizenship of John McCain. The problem I have with this is that John McCain’s citizenship was never in question. Yes, he was born in Panama in 1936 to TWO legal US Citizens, on US Soil in a foreign land. His citizenship was never questioned but the sponsor of the bill, Missouri’s own Claire McCaskill managed to sneak in a key phrase that the Obama camp would use throughout their road to the White House. “Whereas the term ‘natural born citizen’ as that term appears in Article II, Section I is not defined in the Constitution.” In other words, the Constitution fails to mention define what a natural born citizen actually is, so it’s open to interpretation. To make matters worse, guess who co-sponsored this bill…..that’s right…..Senator Barack Hussein Obama of Illinois who just so happened to be gaining ground as the Democratic National Committee’s Poster Boy at the time. BY slipping those words into the bill, it paved the way for Obama to skate into the inauguration without having to prove his citizenship. To overrule such wording, even though the bill meant nothing, would require investigations, time, and possibly Supreme Court rulings. He was elected before such rulings could be handed down or even heard.
To make the tale a little more intriguing, in January of 2009, days before Obama was to be sworn in as President, he held a secretive, closed door, no-cameras allowed, meeting with 8 of the 9 Justices of the Supreme Court of the United States. Justice Samuel Alito, a known conservative, was inexplicably not invited to that meeting, Among the list of others who technically “should have been” invited to such a meeting but weren’t would be the lawyers representing the multiple cases regarding Obama’s citizenship set to be heard by the Supreme Court. If this meeting was not illegal, it was certainly unethical but seeing as it boiled down to a meeting between ten lawyers, ethics probably wasn’t the topic of discussion anyway. What was the topic of discussion though? Nobody except the ten people in the room knows for sure, but one thing is certain……there has never been ONE SINGLE case of any significance regarding the citizenship of Barack Hussein Obama heard by the United States Supreme Court. Let me clarify……if your daughter was killed and the suspected murderer was allowed to meet behind closed doors with the judge and justice for your daughter then went unserved, you would be pissed (to say the least) right? If your business was being unfairly limited by the actions of an unethical sleazebag who used manipulated, calculated actions to gain influence with the judge hearing your case in court, it would be unfair, right? Why then was the most powerful sleazebag in the history of our country allowed to saunter arrogantly into a closed door meeting with 8 carefully selected justices of the highest court in our legal system and curry favor? Why is there no outrage over this?
It took two-an-a-half years of intense public demand for Barack Hussein Obama to release his Birth Certificate and when he finally did…..well…..my seven year old son, given enough time, could produce a more authentic looking document with PhotoShop or Crayons, or a combination of the two. Since it’s release, not ONE SINGLE expert has come forward on behalf of the authenticity of the released document.
I’m not so much interested in finding out where Barack Hussein Obama was born. I mean, I think we can all pretty much agree that it was NOT In any of the places he has claimed thus far. I’m more interested in knowing what is so important about this particular man getting into office that our very own elected officials would try eight separate times to eliminate Constitutional roadblocks that stood in his way? What could he have possibly said to or shown to the Supreme Court Justices during that meeting that made them ignore all ethical responsibility to the people of this country? Is there something in his real birth certificate that would embarrass this country? Could it possibly be any worse than his performance as President? Shouldn’t we be allowed to decide?
As always, thanks for playing!
