Unbelievable! from
White House Spent $23M of Taxpayer Money to Back Kenyan Constitution That Legalizes Abortion, GOP Reps Say

By Tess Civantos

Published July 22, 2010



May 15, 2010: Kenyan supporters cheer at a rally to launch campaigns for the constitution referendum, in the capital Nairobi.

A Republican lawmaker is accusing the White House of “unconscionable” and “illegal” acts for its role in Kenya’s referendum on a new constitution, which would legalize abortion in the country for the first time.

Rep. Chris Smith of New Jersey cited a report by the U.S. Agency for International Development, or USAID, that estimated that more than $23 million in U.S. taxpayer funds have been spent on the referendum. Smith and other conservatives have complained that at least some of that money has been spent in support of the proposed constitution, possibly violating U.S. law.

“Under no circumstances should the U.S. government take sides,” Smith said at a news conference Wednesday. “Yet that is precisely what the Obama administration has done.”

The proposed constitution will curtail the vast powers of the Kenyan president, offering more balance among the different branches of government in an effort to bring order and stability to the political process of a nation often torn by tumultuous exchanges of power.

Vice President Biden told the Kenyan people in a recent speech, “Let me repeat, this is your decision, your decision alone. And the people of Kenya must make this choice — a choice for Kenya by Kenyans.”

Smith and other lawmakers have accused the Obama administration of offering incentives to Kenya to approve the controversial new constitution, promising that passage would “allow money to flow” into the nation’s coffers. A federal law known as the Siljander Amendment makes it illegal for the U.S. government to lobby on abortion in other countries.

“We were unable to get any information prior to asking for those (USAID) reports,” Smith said. “There’s been no transparency in this process.”

Smith had been joined by Reps. Darrell Issa of California and Ileana Ros-Lehtinen of Florida, both Republicans, in requesting the federal investigation into the administration’s spending on the referendum.

“U.S. law is being violated with impunity,” Smith told “We shouldn’t be pushing for other the ‘yes’ or the ‘no’ camp, but instead, we’re bankrolling the ‘yes’ campaign.”

One group that has received almost $3 million from the U.S. government, Development Alternatives, openly supported “advocating for efforts to eventually legalize abortion in Kenya,” Smith said. Another group, The Committee of Experts on Constitutional Review in Kenya, changed the wording of the Kenyan constitution’s abortion clause to make abortion more widely accessible – and has received over $180,000 from the U.S.

Thanks to these findings, nine of the more than 200 organizations in Kenya that received money from the U.S. have been suspended from receiving assistance, the U.S. Embassy spokeswoman Katya Thomas in Nairobi told the AP Friday.

But the congressmen are asking for more. They want the White House to be held accountable for its role.

“If violations of the law have occurred, which on the face of it they have, the information must be brought before law enforcement,” Smith said. “Not even presidents are above the law.”

The federal probe also found that the Kenyan constitution was not actually written by Kenyans, but by “U.S.-funded NGOs, working in concert with Planned Parenthood,” Smith said.

According to the Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s website, Planned Parenthood supports the Kenyan groups that wrote the abortion clause – the Kenyan Federation of Women Lawyers and its parent organization the Kenyan Reproductive Health and Rights Alliance.

Planned Parenthood’s website states that it sought “to improve maternal health conditions in Kenya by securing reproductive health laws and policies that promote women’s health,” its motivation for becoming involved in the constitutional revision process.

But some Kenyans think that the role of American organizations like Planned Parenthood in drafting the Kenyan constitution compromises Kenyan sovereignty and assaults its cultural heritage.

Theresa Okafor, CEO of Kenya’s Life League, said in a speech that the proposed constitution is “a conspiracy to strip Africa of its cherished values by international organizations like Planned Parenthood and the United Nations.”

“Africans regard every child as a blessing,” Okafor said. “Amidst biting poverty, the birth of a child is celebrated with pomp and pageantry. Children are treasures in Africa.”

Because abortion has never been an issue in Kenya until now, the country lacks an organized anti-abortion movement on the scale seen in the United States. But a number of church groups are mobilizing against the proposed constitution, as are some Kenyans who want to preserve the traditional culture of family values.

In March 2003, a group of young professionals formed the Life League, one of Kenya’s first pro-life organizations. In 2009, the Life League and 20 other Kenyan pro-life and pro-family groups united to form the Foundation for African Cultural Heritage – a heritage that they believe the abortion provision attacks.

Obama's Railroad

(This from a friend of mine, CC, facts check out...) AN

This could be a scandal of epic proportions and one that makes Nixon's Watergate or Clinton 's Monica Lewinsky affair pale by comparison. Why was there neither rhyme nor reason as to which dealerships of the Chrysler Corporation were to be closed?

Roll the clock back to the weeks just before Chrysler declared bankruptcy. Chrysler, like GM, was in dire financial straits and federal government "graciously" offered to "buy the company" and keep them out of bankruptcy and "save jobs."

Chrysler was, in the words of Obama and his administration, "Too big to fail." Same story with GM.

The Feds organized their "Automotive Task Force" to fix Chrysler and GM. Obama, in an act that is 100% unconstitutional, appointed a guy named Steve Rattner to be the White House's official Car Czar - literally, that's what his title is.

Rattner is the liaison between Obama, Chrysler, and GM.

Initially, the national media reported that Chrysler "had made this list of dealerships." Not true!

The Washington Examiner, Newsmax, Fox News and a host of other news agencies discovered that the list of dealerships was put together by the "Automotive Task Force" headed by no one other than Mr. Steve Rattner.

Now the plot thickens.

Remember earlier we said that there was neither rhyme nor reason why certain dealerships were closed?

Actually there's a very interesting pattern as to who was closed down. Again, on May 27, 2009, The Washington Examiner and Newsmax exposed the connection.

Amazingly, of the 789 dealerships closed by the federal government, 788 had donated money, exclusively to Republican political causes, while contributing nothing to Democratic political causes. The only "Democratic" dealership on the list was found to have donated $7,700 to Hillary's campaign, and a bit over $2,000 to John Edwards. This same dealership, reportedly, also gave $200.00 to Obama's campaign.

Does that seem a little odd to you?

Steve Rattner is the guy who put the list together. Well, he happens to be married to a Maureen White. Maureen just happens to be the former national finance chairman of the Democratic National Committee. As such, she has access to campaign donation records from everyone in the nation - Republican or Democrat. But of course, this is just a wacky "coincidence," we're certain.

Then comes another really wacky "coincidence."

On that list of dealerships being closed down, a weird thing happened in Arkansas , North Louisiana, and Southern Missouri . It seems that Bill Clinton's former White House Chief of Staff, Mack McClarty, owns a chain of dealership in that region, partnered with a fellow by the name of Robert Johnson.

Johnson happens to be founder of Black Entertainment Television and was a huge Obama supporter and financier.

These guys own a half dozen Chrysler stores under the company title of "LJ-McClarty-Landers." Interestingly, none of their dealerships were ordered closed - not one!

While all of their competing Chrysler/Dodge and Jeep dealership were!

Eight dealerships located near the dealerships owned by McClarty and Johnson were ordered shut down. Thus by pure luck, these two major Obama supporters now have a virtual monopoly on Chrysler sales in their zone.

Isn't that amazing?

Go look in The Washington Examiner, the story's there, and it's in a dozen or so other web-based news organizations; this isn't being made up.

Now if you thought Chrysler was owned by Fiat, you are mistaken. Under the federal court ruling, *65% of Chrysler is now owned by the federal government and the United Auto Workers union!*

Fiat owns 20%.

The other 15% is still privately owned and presumably will be traded on the stock market. Obama smiles and says he doesn't want to run the auto industry.

As horrifying as this is to comprehend, and being as how this used to be the United States of America , it would appear that the president has the power to destroy private businesses and eliminate upwards of 100,000 jobs just because they don't agree with his political agenda.

This is Nazi Germany stuff, and it's happening right here, right now, in our back yard.

There are voices in Washington demanding an explanation, but the "Automotive Task Force" has released no information to the public or to any of the senators demanding answers for what has been done.

Keep your ear to the ground for more on this story. If you've ever wanted to make a difference about anything in your life, get on the phone to your national senator or representative in the House and demand an investigation into this.

Benjamin Franklin had it right when he said, "All that's necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing."

Car Czar No More

An amazing thing happened as this story was going to press. Obama's Car Czar, Steve Rattner, resigned on July 13 and was promptly replaced by former steelworkers union boss Ron Bloom. According to CBS News, Rattner left "to return to private life and spend time with his family."

Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner said, "I hope that he takes another opportunity to bring his unique skills to government service in the future."

By the way, Rattner is under investigation for a multi-million dollar pay-to-play investment bank scandal in New York .

Uh-oh! But, we're certain that had nothing to do with his resignation.

And, according to several news sources out there, there are rumors he's being investigated for what could be pay-to-play scandal involving the closing of Chrysler and GM dealerships. Really? Again, that couldn't have anything to with his resignation-that's ridiculous! Like CBS said, this guy just wants to "spend more quality time with his family."

Obama has 32 personally appointed "czars" who answer to no one but him, all of whom are acting without any Constitutional authority.

But hey, we're sure they all have "unique skills," Tim Geithner likes to say!

ObamaRelease YourRecords

The plot thickens! Dr. Ron Polland is reporting that Obama’s COLB was forged using Hawaii Communications Officer, Janice Okubo’s, 2007 issued COLB. Dr. Polland names 4 other people, among the many, complicit in this long known fraud and cover-up, including Hawaii Governor, Linda Lingle, and, Politifact Reporter, Amy Hollyfield. Can’t forget Factcheck!

Dr. Polland also reports that Obama’s vital records were amended between 2008-2009.

Dr. Polland points out; “for the past two years, Hawaii has refused to confirm that the online COLB copy is a genuine 2007 COLB issued to Obama on June 6, 2007.”… More details and names in the video below… Bonus info below Dr. Polland’s new video…

Via TheDrRJP; FRAUD IN THE USA EXCLUSIVE! - Blue Hawaii - Sometime between October 31, 2008, and July 27, 2009, the dates of Health Director Chiyome Fukino’s two press releases, Hawaii amended Obama’s birth record. A brand-new Certificate of Live Birth (not Certification) was issued to him. The DOH Director decides what goes in or gets taken out of birth records. She went on record as saying that “President Obama posted a copy of his certificate on his campaign website” even though she has refused to authenticate it for the past two years. This created a conundrum that could only be resolved by changing Obama’s birth records to match what is in that online copy - which is a stone-cold forgery and Fukino knows it! That forged COLB also has its origin within the DOH: watch the video to find out the shocking truth. Source.


[6/11/10]Dr. Polland’s new report regarding, Politifact, Hawaii DoH, and Obama’s Organizing for America.

by Dr. Polland and some; Clear, concise, and clever, “It’s the conspiracy, Stupid!” takes you behind the scenes of the greatest birth certificate fraud in history and exposes the four groups who collaborated in hiding Obama’s real birth certificate passing off a fake one instead to deceive and defraud the American public. The whole point of calling it a “wacky conspiracy theory” is to prevent people from finding out what’s really going on. It is no different than the guilty saying they are innocent. For the first time anywhere, here are the facts and evidence gathered during my two year investigation that clearly explains the rationale for doing it, the propaganda they used to pull it off, and the campaign they have mounted to discredit conservatives.

The first video below is Dr. Pollands’ new video report. It’s a must see video! Previous reports on Dr. Polland can be seen and Birth Certificate fraud is nothing new in America. [image source]

Demand for Obama’s Resignation Petition has been launched
from The Betrayal by Niayna

The Post & Email

by Sharon Rondeau

Patriots Heart Network features news stories and Twitter updates from many sources as well as nightly broadcasts on BlogTalk Radio(Jun. 27, 2010) — Chalice Jackson, owner of Patriots Heart Network, in tandem with Scott Winchell and Maj. Gen. Paul E. Vallely (Ret.) of Stand Up America and formerly a military analyst at the Fox News Channel, have announced the launch of a new initiative which demands the resignation of “Barack Obama, his appointees, and his administration forthwith” for “High Crimes and Misdemeanors.”

The “NO CONFIDENCE! We Demand Resignation Petition Letter for High Crimes and Misdemeanors” can be found here and is downloadable and printable.

On June 5, 2010, Maj. Gen. Vallely gave a speech at the Lincoln-Reagan Dinner in Virginia City, Montana in which he said:

We now must call for the immediate resignation of Barry Soetero (AKA President Barack Hussein Obama) …..based on Incompetence, Deceit, Fraud, Corruption, Dishonesty and Violation of the US Oath of Office and the Constitution…And a call for a National Petition for new elections to select the next President of the United States of America must be initiated. We can wait no longer for a traditional change of Power and New Government.

Gen. Vallely was a guest on Patriots Heart Network on June 8, 2010, discussing his stated position about Obama and his regime and why he had reached that conclusion. The Post & Email’s interview with Gen. Vallely is here.

Chalice was kind enough to give generously of her time to The Post & Email to explain the scope, focus and mission of the petition drive.

SHARON: Thank you so much for being willing on short notice to explain your new initiative. How can other websites, groups and individuals become involved?

CHALICE: The website is SomeoneDiedForMeToday, and the best place to start is there. If you wish to become one of our partner organizations, just go to the website where there’s an email link right at the top of the page. That would be for the larger groups. Our goal by the end of the weekend is to fill up our page. We’re almost halfway there now. Of course, we’d like to fill up two pages, so I don’t want to limit my goals at all. The more, the better!

We’re putting up the banners as they come in so that everyone will know for history’s sake who were the fastest and most perceptive to get on board right away. And you were one of them, and I want to thank you, Sharon, because The Post & Email is such a wonderful news media organization and we’re very grateful to have you join in this peaceful but active movement to force our elected officials to be held accountable for their actions by utilizing the tools in the U.S. Constitution itself for redress.

SHARON: How did this get its start?

CHALICE: General Vallely and Scott Winchell, who works closely with the General, have been working on the concept of the resignation of public officials for some time, over a year now. I was getting ready to interview the General, and he and I had a conversation, and through that conversation, I said, “Why don’t we partner up and Patriots Heart will lead the charge, and through that process we’ll ask everybody in America to sign a petition. We debated quite a bit about what type of petition to do. Last summer I personally delivered over 1.5 million signatures to every member of Congress with signed receipts and did not get a single call back. So I know how effective these petitions that are served in pages are. So the decision was made to try individual petition letters, and through a couple of conversations among Scott, Paul and I, we designed this approach.

There are several reasons for it. The name “Someone Died For Me Today” came about after I had discussed with someone my concern about what’s going on in our country, and he said to me that he was too busy to be politically involved and didn’t think he should become involved…and I just looked at him and the words just blurted out. I said, “Somebody died for you today; don’t you get it?” So that’s how the name came about; I had just blurted it out. When I said that, I said to myself, “Someone died for me today, too.”

That means something, because why did they die? They died for their oath. They gave an oath to their country and to their Constitution, and they served their oath to the ultimate degree. When we are in a situation where most of Americans believe there’s something wrong with Mr. Obama but still, half of those Americans are asleep, what is it that’s going to cause them to wake up? I think the question comes back to, “We all have an oath,” and that’s why the website posts the American Creed, so that we as Americans can say, “What is our level of responsibility right now in making sure that our constitutional republic continues?”

Then, of course, when we look at Mr. Obama and many of the other politicians right now, we see that they are oath-breakers; they have broken their oath of office. When you try to take a petition and move it forward, you need to ask, “How do we do that? How do we get individuals to all agree on the same concept and not get lost in the minutia?”

I think that’s important, because the other aspect of this is the oath that they’ve broken. They have committed high crimes and misdemeanors against their oath. That’s why the top of our petition starts with the presidential oath of office and then from there, it goes down to say that Mr. Obama has taken that oath twice, and then it defines what a “high crime and misdemeanor” is. When you understand what that is, it will stun you. Let me read it to you. This is from Wikipedia, posted on June 20. They sometimes wordsmith things, as you know.

“High” in the legal parlance of the 18th century means “against the State”. A high crime is one which seeks the overthrow of the country, which gives aid or comfort to its enemies, or which injures the country to the profit of an individual or group. In democracies and similar societies it also includes crimes which attempt to alter the outcome of elections.

So if you can read that definition and agree that Mr. Obama has committed this high crime and misdemeanor, that is enough to then call for the House and Senate Judiciary Committees to launch an investigation, or at least for we the people to demand that they launch that investigation.

SHARON: Then this is not aimed at the question of Obama’s eligibility?

CHALICE: That’s correct; the eligibility issue isn’t involved in this at all. Some people might say that that’s another one of his high crimes: that he’s refusing to be open and transparent to the American people about his background, particularly as it pertains to his eligibility. But that is really not what this is about; this is about high crimes and misdemeanors and it relates to his oath of office. He’s supposed to uphold the Constitution. There is only a certain number of ways that you can remove a president, and that was put into the Constitution specifically because it had a very clear meaning. What has happened over time is we’ve lost the understanding of what that means. So the eligibility question is completely separate from this initiative.

SHARON: You mentioned affecting the “outcome of elections.” Might one of the charges be related to the alleged job offers to Andrew Romanoff of Colorado and Joe Sestak of Pennsylvania in exchange for their requested withdrawal from political races and about which some senators have already asked for an investigation?

CHALICE: Absolutely. We have a right to know if that happened. If he’s committed this crime, let’s get it investigated openly. Obviously, when he has the majority power to move motions forward, he’s not going to move that. So it has to come from the people. But those would be two very good examples, and also the Blagojevich trial is another one that falls into that same category. So we have a trend; we don’t just have one, two or three. I believe there’s a fourth case of corruption as well.

SHARON: The Post & Email has been covering the Blagojevich trial and the alleged job offers to Romanoff and Sestak. Are there other things, for instance, election fraud when Obama was a candidate?

CHALICE: That’s a very important question, and the heart of that question is, “What is the range of charges that we’re making?” We have a section on our site where we’re asking others to bring forward that kind of information so that we can bring it to the House Judiciary Committee.

SHARON: I noticed that the charges are not specific at this point. Is there a reason for that?

CHALICE: There is a good reason for it. The goal is to let the American people look at the definition of “high crimes and misdemeanors,” and if they think he has committed them, then let’s get the investigation going and then we can put all those charges out there. We don’t want to get lost in the argument of the charges while we mobilize America. I think if most Americans read the Wikipedia definition of “high crimes and misdemeanors,” they would say, “Yes, Mr. Obama and his regime have committed these offenses.” To back that up, we’re adding that section to the website, and we’re also putting out a fourth page of talking points where we can list some of the transgressions.

I have gotten that same feedback from a couple of very important people who said, “I don’t think my friends are going to sign this if there aren’t specific charges.” But the real thing right now is the definition of “high crimes and misdemeanors.” If you read that, has he committed that? That’s all you’re affirming when you sign the petition: that he has committed high crimes and misdemeanors.

SHARON: Or we need an investigation, at the very least?

CHALICE: Exactly.

SHARON: Were any other people instrumental in putting together this effort?

CHALICE: We have a couple of wonderful web people who helped us quite a bit, and each of us has our own individuals whom we’ve consulted on secondary levels.

SHARON: Did you know Maj. Gen. Vallely before you talked about this project?

CHALICE: I had interviewed him a couple of times, and he had been on our radio station several times before as well. But this came about because it was the right time and place, and we had the conversation, and the energy connected. I think that there’s a timing in everything. We don’t have a long, interconnected relationship other than that we’re all patriots.

SHARON: How many signatures do you expect to get this weekend?

CHALICE: Our goal is to have 1,000 commitments to be Flame-Builders by the end of the weekend. We’re having a big show on Sunday night, and we’ll take those commitments as best as we can determine them at that point, and as the flames are built, then we can actually go backwards and count. That’s why people should send me an email, because then we know that groups of ten have gone out. Then it’s backed up by the paperwork being sent to Patriots Heart, so we should be able to go to the mailbox and start seeing signed petitions there. So this weekend, the goal is 1,000, and when we have 1,000 who are agreeing to become Flame-Builders, that will give us 1,000,000 signatures by July 13.

SHARON: What is significant about the date of July 13?

CHALICE: We’re just moving; there is no time to waste. This is another aspect to the question that you asked earlier about how this started, and I think it’s important to understand that Gen. Vallely and I had a conversation and I’ve had this conversation with almost every patriot I know, and they’re saying the same thing: We can’t wait until November. With everything going on in the Gulf, I think universally, we have an ache in our gut that won’t go away and the feeling that our actions to date haven’t made that big of a difference. Therefore, waiting until November is very difficult to stomach. If everyone understands that if we get this petition drive moving and it is on the House floor in July, it changes the conversation, and that’s what we need to do. We need to stop the conversation and the way that they’re controlling it as if there’s no emergency going on in the Gulf and the other ways in which this regime is ignoring its constitutional obligations, especially in Arizona. So we need to stop the conversation immediately because we have elections coming. We want Obama impeached by September 1.

When other people understand that this is happening, then it changes the whole context of the election. Now we will say to all the politicians, “The people are holding you accountable to your oath.” Because if you look at what’s going on right now, it’s almost as if the words have no meaning. This whole question right now that Obama is suddenly going to give amnesty to illegal immigrants by executive order, going in by the back door, shows that there is no attention being paid to his oath of office, and we need to hold him responsible. And why don’t we hold him responsible? The media won’t support it, so we have to drive it ourselves. There is beauty in a contest which is based upon each individual pod, where every Flame-Builder is a group of ten. Pick your Flames carefully; pick ten people with whom you can work and follow up in five days and say, “Did you get your ten letters out?” or “Did you find your ten Flame-Builders?”

And for group leaders, you don’t have to report your group of ten to anybody; you just send us an email and say, “We have our group and it’s moving,” and you check back with them to make sure that happens. Now if we need to ignite this flame again for another time when we can’t get the cooperation of the media or we the people can’t get the changes that we need right now, then we can do that. But it will always be contained at the individual level, and that’s where it belongs. I’m just sick and tired of the fact that we raise our voices, and nobody is listening. We have to hold elected officials accountable to their oath of office.

SHARON: Why do you think Congress has been so unresponsive to the many issues that Americans clearly have had problems with during the last 18 months such as the banking bill and health care bill which many argue are unconstitutional?

CHALICE: I think there are many reasons. Part of it, of course, is the fact that big business, politicians and the media are all sleeping in the same bed. They’re disgusting in their gluttony. We’ve had the gluttony for a while, and it has been growing. But it’s over the top now, and we are in the middle of a global crisis. This oil spill is not a little deal; it’s getting bigger, and they’re not even allowing us to know what’s going on there. The only way we’re going to get our country back is if we take it back person by person, and that’s why it’s important to remember that someone has died for you today and for me today, because they’re defending our Constitution. It’s time to take a look and say, “What does the Constitution mean to you?” If you think that this regime has violated its oath of office, then it’s time to bring it up and make it be heard. I believe that will set the bar to get all politicians to be accountable. That’s what we’re about as tea partiers: to get politicians to obey their oath of office. So how do we enforce it? Well, we don’t have until November to wait. The time to enforce it is right now for all of these officials who are up for re-election or who are going to want to be elected. I don’t know how else we can do it, because when you have all the major powers sleeping together, and they have their own agenda, and that agenda is not based on the Constitution, the only answer is the people. There is no other option.

SHARON: You mentioned an important radio show on Sunday night, June 27. What time is the show and who will your guests be?

CHALICE: It will be from 9:00 to 11:00 p.m. EDT, and I want all of the group leaders to call in and commit to being on our list. We’re looking for individuals who have email lists and everyone who was willing to mobilize and become a Flame-Builder. General Vallely will be on as well.

SHARON: What will you be discussing?

CHALICE: We’ll be talking about the process of building groups and getting petitions mailed out. It’s very important that your readers and everyone know that the petition letters be mailed. The impression of land mail is much stronger than any other method of delivery, other than personal visits. Each chamber of Congress must retain the letters. When we get 1,000,000 on July 13, that will actually be 4,000,000 pieces of mail delivered to four different groups.

The more signatures we have, the more it’s going to roll. That’s how a chain works. Just think about this: how long has it been since any of us have believed in a chain letter? Twenty years, right? But this can’t be completed on email, although you can circulate it that way to get started. Everyone must make sure to actually mail the petition letters to the people at the bottom of the form.

SHARON: How will you be documenting this process as it moves forward?

CHALICE: I want to get pictures of what the 10,000,000 letters look like. So when they’re delivered to Patriots Heart, we’ll choose a location and take continuing pictures so that we can give updates and people will know what’s going on. That’s another thing that happens to us: we jump in on these campaigns, and we never really know how much of an effect we had. But this time, we have a way to track it. We will know that there are 1,000,000 letters because we will have counted them.

SHARON: So each person has to mail five copies of the letter?

CHALICE: Yes, and keep one for yourself. Put it in your family Bible, because you’re making history right now. You want to be able to say, “This is what I did.” All you have to do is sit down and address five envelopes, send them out, and get ten people to do that. If that’s all you have to do to make a profound, instantaneous change to your government, it’s a lot easier than going out to the battlefield, isn’t it?

SHARON: I would think anyone would rather do this.

CHALICE: And we can make it fun. Connect with your ten people, keep it fresh, and send it out, because we can make a difference and we know we have an audience. What does it take for each of us to take ourselves away from our out-of-control schedules, which we all have right now, to do this? I know for me personally, I feel I have to be making a difference. So this is what I can say to everybody: Do your chain, build that chain, and you will have a relationship that will last. We don’t know where that relationship will go yet, but it’s one that will be interesting to watch. Also, you know for a fact that when we get a volume of these petitions, the House is going to have to pay attention, and it’s going to change the conversation. I can guarantee you that. Beyond that, God will know.

We know that there are some people who can’t do more than engage their immediate family, and we need them, too. They are the Sparks who have mailed their five petition letters.

There is an advantage in sending a copy of the petitions to Patriots Heart in that when mail arrives at the White House, it all goes through their security system. We will be able to know much faster how many petitions are actually being received because we’ll be maintaining a count here. So make sure to send us a copy of your petition. The only thing that everyone has to put on the petition is first and last name, city and state. If individuals want to be part of our updates and email lists, they can sign up on the website. But the core of this process is to get the petitions out there, because some people are concerned about retribution from the government.

SHARON: Government has certainly grown a lot in the last 18 months, and Thomas Jefferson said that if the people fear their government, there is tyranny. Would an investigation begin in the House or Senate Judiciary Committee?

CHALICE: Investigations for impeachment can begin in either committee, although actual impeachment proceedings begin in the House.

The important thing is, if you can’t find ten people but you can get three, you’ve still done something. That will equate to the end result being 300,000 signatures. This is a very interesting point: if I just start one Flame, which is a group of ten, within 26 days, that will bring 1,000,000 petitions. When you really think about it, it doesn’t make sense. But in increments of five days, if you do multiples of ten, that’s how it works. The integrity at the chain-link level is the key; you have to have a group of ten who will make sure that their group of ten makes sure that their group of ten gets people to send the petitions. It’s like a wildfire.

SHARON: I’ve been equating it to the spark, the flame, and then a huge bonfire that can be seen from anywhere in the country.

CHALICE: Exactly!

SHARON: Is there anything you’d like to add about the petition drive?

CHALICE: As you get your pods together, contact your boots-on-the-ground leaders. Reach out to your groups. Another thing that will help is for those who are able to go to senior homes, VFWs and get those people engaged, work with various clubs…As you go to your July 4 parade, take these packages and hand them out. However we spread it, the movement goes. That would be one thing. And leaders, if you’re on the ground working with candidates, contact them and get them involved. I went to a 912 group meeting on Friday night, and people were grabbing the petitions like crazy! It seemed to be what everybody wants, and they were excited. It takes a little bit of explanation, but that’s easy! Also, we’re building icons for Facebook and Twitter, so when you’re a Flame-builder, you’ll get a special icon you can use. If you get more than one Flame, then you’ll get more than one. Or if you’re a torch-blower, you’ll get a whole bunch!

SHARON: You had mentioned how organizations can sign up to support your efforts. What else do you need other than publicizing it on various websites?

CHALICE: We really need help at the Town Square to build the evidence against Mr. Obama. So if individuals have a passion about that, they can help there. It’s not only about Obama; we also are building a database of how oaths have been broken by individuals such as Nancy Pelosi, Joe Biden, Harry Reid, and all of the different elected officials. So if someone has been studying one person or another and wants to make sure that that information is contained as a breach of oath, he or she can enter it in the Town Square and it will be a resource. That’s very important, because we’re all so scattered right now, so let’s focus on the Constitution and elected officials’ oath.

The other thing that I would really like to see, as we do this, is a celebration of the fact that we’re spreading liberty. If people have artwork they’d like to submit, that’s great. We can also have contests for who can recruit the most Flames. We should try to have fun with it because we’re all so stressed right now. On the serious side, we want to remember the people who died for us today, so we’re looking to make sure that stories about soldiers who have paid the ultimate price become part of our forum. That’s very important.

To make this happen, it has to be taken to individuals who aren’t necessarily engaged. We have to go there. When you do, and they say, “I can’t be engaged,” you remind them that someone, almost a baby, is dying for our Constitution. It just makes me crazy to think that our children are dying for their oath and we can’t get our politicians to commit to theirs. I don’t get it.

SHARON: Thank you very much for your time, Chalice, and explaining this new initiative.

The Post & Email has reported on the following cases which could constitute violations of the U.S. Constitution:

Several House members have already called for an investigation into the State Department’s planned financial support of a new proposed Kenyan constitution which promotes the legalization of abortion, in possible violation of the Siljander Amendment.

The sale of Chrysler to Fiat under Obama’s watch and the numerous dealerships which were put out of business as a is being challenged by Attorneys Donofrio and Pidgeon, who have filed a lawsuit which is ongoing.

Article IV, Section IV of the U.S. Constitution states that “The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion…” Is Obama protecting the citizens in border states by filing a lawsuit against Arizona for passing a law to protect itself? There are also reports that Obama might be planning to grant amnesty to illegal immigrants by executive order.

The Domestic Enemy
from The Betrayal by Niayna

The Post & Email

by Arnie Rosner

Admiral Michael Mullen became Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff on October 1, 2007, after serving as Chief of Naval Operations and Navy Commander in several areas of the worldJune 27, 2010

Dear Admiral Mullen:

Many of us share the concern about the position in which Mr. Obama has placed you. We recognize the tenuous and critically explosive nature of the processes in which you are engaged to determine a correct course of action. We recognize that a man of less honor and proven long-term duty to country would not be faced with such a heavy task.

At exactly what point is the precarious balance tipped, the point at which a dedicated, courageous, fiercely loyal, conscientious military leader, a distinguished leader with an insatiable love for this country, a respected leader with a highly-developed sense of loyalty, respect and appreciation for the balance required to maintain the equilibrium of justice and reason between the forces of good and evil, the forces of public and political opinion and the rights of freedom guaranteed by the founding documents by which previous generations of our military guardians have successfully guided our way for over 200 years?

We are speaking of not only a military leader but a leader of men and one who is also unique in the sense that you posses the unusual blend of executive and administrative expertise and experience rarely even understood by most people in our society, regardless of their political orientation.

But besides all of the technical reasons you bring to the table, Admiral, you also being your tempered judgment, one more quality which also qualifies your sense of balance to sort out the differences among the elements I have mentioned, with their biased orientation from the point of a concerned citizen, with your intimate perspective, a view only possible to attain from your vantage point within the government.

History has placed you in a position where you appear to be faced with assuming the role of a modern-day Samson. However, the decision you face is even more critical than can be resolved by suggesting the baby be cut in half. Only a skilled executive with years of administrative and military experience, together with the special qualities of balance, described above, can possibly make an accurate determination as to whether the current civil administrator with a questionable level of authority, an authority to which you report through the established chain of command, has exceeded the limits of appropriate legal, ethical and moral conduct by a government based on the Constitution as empowered by the people of the United States.

In my view, Admiral Mullen, the Obama regime and Congress have consistently rejected and ignored the will of the people on many occasions. I base this conclusion on the execution of a constant unrelenting stream of events, oppressive legislation and abusive executive orders, where the will of the people has been repeatedly expressed, in good faith, and flatly ignored by those who have seized power. Many of the disenfranchised people of this country, me included, have classified the current administration and the Congress as our “domestic enemy, a term in the Constitution of the United States which describes this specific state of affairs.

Certainly many factors must be taken into consideration when weighing the gravity of this situation which has been developing over the last 18 months, a situation which has exhibited a pattern of repeated administrative abuse headed in a direction where even you must have some questions and concerns about the legitimacy of those in charge.

Stepping back for a moment, let’s examine just a few of the issues in question. For starters, there is the issue of the eligibility of Mr. Obama. Does it make sense that a man who promised the people of the United States the most transparent and open government ever then refuses to produce a simple document such as his birth certificate? Further, does it seem logical that Mr. Obama would spend over $1.2 million to ensure the people to whom he made this promise of transparency would be denied all access to his basic information?

Many concessions can be made to excuse the behavior of a person who, like Mr. Obama, was placed in a position of trust, if indeed the actions of this person would seem to be consistent with acting in the best interest of those who elected him. However, upon closer examination, is taking over several segments of the private sector in the best interest of the American Republic?

For more proof of his intent, just look at the extent of the conspiracy which planned and executed the deception surrounding his attempt to legitimize his fraudulent birth certificate:

Further examination must be given to the manner in which health care was dealt by Mr. Obama’s administration. Putting aside the political portion of the argument, again, is the manner in which this legislation illegally bypassed the normal legislative process consistent with the will of the American people?

There are many other issues in which the Obama administration seems to be questionably involved, too many for my taste. However, this may simply be reflected by my attitude. I am confident that you also must share some concern about the way our missile program has been compromised, how our allies have been alienated and our strongest ally in the Middle East, Israel, has been marginalized.

Of course, the fact that Mr. Obama now openly embraces what appears to be the Islamization of our nation, when before the election he presented himself as a Christian, should begin to wave a caution flag.

But even more importantly, I would think the lack of his commitment to win the war in Afghanistan would weigh the heaviest on your mind. Admiral, I am not a military expert, and what I am about to say would most probably be considered politically incorrect.

The way Mr. Obama has handled decisions regarding the war effort has left me with the distinct impression that he is attempting to carefully orchestrate a balancing act designed to cover his real position. In some cases he acts to demonstrate to many Americans his leadership abilities to direct the war and at the same time do as little as possible to risk offending his friends, our enemies, in the Middle East.

On the one hand, he dare not leave the impression that he is against the war, although clearly I expect this is his true position. On the other hand, he must leave an impression that as purported commander-in-chief, he is indeed in charge and competent to make such leadership decisions.

However, I must question the intent of a commander-in-chief who asks of his field commanders, whom he himself had appointed, what is needed to win the war, and then proceeds to delay making a basic decision on this information for months, thereby providing our enemies with valuable time to rebuild defenses. What was even more telling, in my opinion, was when Obama was apprised of the likelihood of only partial success if fewer than the requested number of troops were provided, he authorized only a portion of the total number of troops requested. I am not sure of your take on this, Admiral, but to me this was a clear sign he did not intend to win this war.

In my view, Admiral, it was a sure-fire way to insure defeat, a decision that was definitely biased in favor of our enemy. As I see it, Admiral, this act of treason was as deliberate as was possible for someone acting as our domestic enemy. Could it be any more clear?

This lack of commitment indicates to me that Mr. Obama is not genuinely committed to winning the war in Afghanistan. In my view, Mr. Obama is not genuinely committed to those in the Armed Forces who are risking their lives, to the military leadership, or to the people of the United States.

Obama is treating Afghanistan in the same manner as the Gulf oil spill. In this crisis he appears to be attempting to manipulate the outcome for his own political maneuvering.

I see his reluctance to totally identify himself as committed to a plan of action to assure complete victory in Afghanistan as a preliminary plan for defeat. When the war effort is lost, as is his typical modus operandi, he will blame the failure on you and the rest of the military and throw the entire military leadership and our courageous men and women in uniform under the bus as a political expediency. He will do this when he believes it will be convenient to assure his reelection in 2012. At that time I predict he will represent himself as having been against the war from the beginning. He will attempt to present himself as the emerging hero of the republic.

This dangerous and treasonous set of circumstances demonstrates the very reason the Commander-in-Chief of the United States military must be a natural born Citizen, a special kind of citizen who cannot be placed in a position of divided loyalties such as in the case of Mr. Obama, who had a foreign parent and might even be foreign-born himself.

I am not sure if it occurred to you, but it did to me: when Obama is in a position to determine military options, is he thinking of the American people or his benefactors in the Middle East?

Admiral Mullen, will you honor your oath and, along with Lt. Col. Terry Lakin, take the necessary steps to insure that any and all orders from your “Commander-in-Chief” are, in fact, lawful orders from a Constitutionally-qualified and eligible person for that position, and, if not, also take the necessary steps to remove him from the chain of command? I and a desperately-awaiting nation are awaiting your response to this burning question: Can any orders, Executive or Commands, from an illegitimate Commander-in-Chief, be considered “Lawful Orders”?

Historical Documents Prove Vattel’s Writings Were Used By Our Founders To Define “Natural Born Citizen”
from The Betrayal by Niayna

Jefferson’s Rebels Published

“A little rebellion now and then…is a medicine necessary for the sound health of government.” Thomas Jefferson, Letter to James Madison, 1787, 3rd U.S. President (1743 - 1826)

Bloggers on now state they have found documentation from the revolutionary era that proves the framers of our Constitution used Vattel’s writings to define the meaning of the term “natural born citizen” — a hotly debated issue. UR is a group of university historians–not your average blogger, so their research is important. They plan to publish the results of their research either in a professional journal or perhaps a book.

When the link opens, scroll down to the June 18, 2010 comment. If you haven’t already read the column from start to finish, this would be a good time to do so. If you search Jefferson’s Rebels, you will find numerous articles on this topic. Use either the keywords “vattel” and/or “natural born citizen.”

UR folks…
Any progress on locating additional historical documents that show the “natural born citizen” to Vattel link?

Allegedly, there exists some Adam’s family, and Lee family papers that have not been seen by the general public, that prove the framers got their definition and understanding of a natural born citizen from Vattel’s work.

When might they, or other documents, be published?

The country is devolving by the day now.

We need relief from the usurper and his cronies.

Yep. We have the definitive proof of the Vattel link to the Constitution straight from historical documentation.

These Are The Times That Try Mens Souls
The Meaning of Natural Born Citizen

The time may ere long arrive when the minds of men will be prepared to make an effort to recover the Constitution, but the many cannot now be brought to make a stand for its preservation. We must wait a while.
N.Y. Historical Society’s Collections (Lee Papers), vol. III, 1873

I have the Honor to be with great respect Sir, Your Most Humble and Obedient Servant. - George Washington

I have the Honor to be with great respect Sir, Your Most Humble and Obedient Servant. – George Washington


There were three types of citizens at the time of the signing of the Constitution:

1. Those who pledged their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor to the Declaration of Independence. On that day, July 4, 1776, millions of former British subjects became citizens of a sovereign America.

2. The children, their heirs, born of those pledged citizens, were the first natural-born citizens of the new nation.

3. A person naturalized into citizenship through an act of law requiring an oath and and renunciation to any former allegiance.

We are either a United people, or we are not. If the former, let us, in all matters of general concern act as a nation, which have national objects to promote, and a national character to support. If we are not, let us no longer act a farce by pretending to it.
George Washington, letter to James Madison, November 30, 1785

The scope of this writing is to focus on the intent of the Framers of the Constitution of the United States as it pertains to the clause in Article II, Section 1, Clause 5:

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.

This study explores the historical, legislative and judicial areas for factual evidence that defines the intent behind the clause. While it by no means gives the bulk of the research justice, for that would require a book, it should provide a sufficient template that destroys the theory that the definition was allegedly an ambiguous or an otherwise unanswerable question. Breaking it down into the three aforementioned parts, we are able to see a contiguous pattern that is easily digestable using the credibility of those who were living and present during those eras. It is crucial to set the stage during the American Revolution, for we find that it was the experience drawn from this event that provides the foundation from which everything else is drawn that embodies the spirit of the Constitution itself.

In GULF, C. & S. F. R. CO. v. ELLIS, 165 U.S. 150 (1897), the court advocated, as well as over 100 other courts who similarly advised, to look to this period for direction when applicable:

“… and while in all cases reference must be had to the organic law of the nation for such limits, yet the latter [The Constitution] is but the body and the letter of which the former [The Declaration of Independence] is the thought and the spirit, and it is always safe to read the letter of the Constitution in the spirit of the Declaration of Independence.”

So we start at this point in history and provide a historical review of the events that shed light on the intellect that manifests itself later into the Constitution and subsequent legislation and jurisprudence.

We pick up events after the French and Indian War1 where King George III attempted to tax the colonists in an effort to recoup his losses incurred by the war. This event also gave the king the excuse he needed to gain control over the now flourishing and prosperous States. America was no longer a band of menial pioneers who struggled through long winters and devastating plagues with little to no help from the distant Crown. It was now a fully functional, vast community of largely, self-sufficient States, rich in resources with the potential of becoming more powerful and independent by the day. The king seized the post-war opportunity to call for reining in that power and wealth for the benefit of the mother country. The colonists objected, having no representation in Parliament; a violation of the often ignored, yet existing, constitution2 between them. By 1775, the conflict from a series of levies by Parliament and resistance by the colonists had come to a head. Shocking intelligence revealed that the king was actually intending to utilize the Hessians (Germans) as mercenaries in conjunction with his own army to crush the Americans by force. The plan threatened imminent doom for America as they knew it. Despite the colonists hopes, the long-awaited resolution was not to come and an Act was passed by Parliament throwing them out of the king’s protection. Dr. David Ramsay3, notable historian, physician, one in service to the Continental Congress and president in the Senate, wrote:

Though new weight was daily thrown into the scale, in which the advantages of independence were weighed, yet it did not preponderate till about that time in 1776, when intelligence reached the colonists of the act of parliament passed in December 1775, for throwing them out of British protection, and of hiring foreign troops to assist in effecting their conquest. 4

The colonists were now faced with the prospect of seeking aid themselves or facing up to the possibility of being crushed by an onslaught that was stacked in Great Britain’s favor. Where that aid might materialize from was not evident. What was clear was that the colonial States together with England, had just gotten over participating against the French in a seven-year long conflict that spanned throughout Europe. While tensions with France weren’t as nearly as bad as that of England, it certainly wasn’t optimal or trusting. In addition, there were many other obstacles to overcome. Word of the king’s plan needed to be conveyed to the people. They needed to arrive at a decision for independence and then declare it. This was so that, in the eyes of the law of nations, their sovereignty would demand recognition. Otherwise, they would be viewed as a people engaged in a civil war that other nations would be loathe to get involved in. Dr. Ramsay further explains,

While the public mind was balancing on this eventful subject, several writers placed the advantages of independence in various points of view. Among these Thomas Paine in a pamphlet, under the signature of Common Sense, held the most distinguished rank. 5

An important impact from Thomas Paine’s Common Sense was the suggestion that no government could be instituted with the blessing from Heaven, that revealed,

… convincing proof, that Great-Britain had thrown them out of her protection, had engaged foreign mercenaries to make war upon them, and seriously designed to compel their unconditional submission to her unlimited power. It found the colonists most thoroughly alarmed for their liberties, and disposed to do and suffer any thing that promised their establishment. 6

With the realization of Great Britain’s plan against the people and pondering the oppressive ramifications of subjugating themselves to it, the colonists declared their independence. On that day, July 4, 1776, millions pledged their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor for the sake of liberty and freedom and rejected “lusting after kings” to rule and provide over them; embracing republican ideas instead. These millions of former British subjects became the first citizens of a sovereign America and are included in the Constitution as being a party to it at the time of its execution. This was the cornerstone ideology of the new nation to come and deserves clarification in the history books; that what was on the line was far more serious than just taxation without representation. It was about a power grab at its core.

However the conviction of the colonists may be measured, it was still no match for the sheer logistical numbers of the British troops and their mercenaries. France was keenly aware that it was in her best interests to support the independence of the United States rather than have England continue to dominate. Dr. Ramsay records the pivotal events:

The news of the capitulation of Saratoga reached France, very early in December, 1777. The American deputies took that opportunity to press for an acceptance of the treaty, which had been under consideration for the preceding twelve months. The capture of Burgoyne’s army convinced the French, that the opposition of the Americans to Great Britain was not the work of a few men who had got power in their hands, but of the great body of the people, and was like to be finally successful.7

It was therefore determined to take them by the hand, and publicly to espouse their cause. The commissioners of Congress were informed by Mr. Gerard one of the secretaries of the King’s council of State, that it was decided to acknowledge the independence of the United States and to make a treaty with them. That in the treaty no advantage would be taken of their situation to obtain terms which, otherwise, it would not be convenient for them to agree to. …

That his most Christian Majesty was fixed in his determination not only to acknowledge, but to support, their independence. That in doing this he might probably soon be engaged in a war, yet he should not expect any compensation from the United States on that account, nor was it pretended that he acted wholly for their sakes, since besides his real good will to them, it was manifestly the interest of France, that the power of England should be diminished, by the separation of the colonies from its government.

Marquis de la Fayette8, a French soldier who was enamored with the American cause and despite the order for his arrest on account of it, had already joined the Revolution in June of 1777 of his own accord. He was among the first to receive news of a treaty and alliance between France and America signed on February 6, 1778. However, the caliber of dedication in comparison to de la Fayette’s character was striking. These French counterparts to the cause varied from obliged volunteers, to demanding stipulations for pay, then advanced pay and ultimately rank within Washington’s army. When the latter was assumed, a morale disturbance and upset was felt among the American troops. The situation was summed up best by George Washington’s numerous letters addressing the subject directly:

“You are not to enlist any person who is not an American born, unless such person has a wife and family, and is a settled resident of this country.” George Washington, Given at headquarters, at Cambridge, this 10 July, 1775.

Here we see the first seeds of nativity, connections to the country and residency as being the fundamental criteria of fidelity. Then later, adding to the list, Washington’s preference for natives who own property. In a letter from Gen. Washington to Col. Spotswood, dated in 1777, in a publication entitled “Maxims of Washington,” p. 192, the following passage occurs: –

“You will therefore send me none but natives, and men of some property, if you have them. I must insist that in making this choice you give no intimation of my preference for natives, as I do not want to create any individual distinction between them and foreigners.”

The same is promulgated in Washington’s subsequent General Orders, where we see Washington raise the bar again to include verification. In Commander Washington’s General Orders of July 7, 1775 given at Head Quarters, Cambridge by Horatio Gates, Adj. General to Parole-Dorchester, Countersign-Exeter:

“The General has great Reason; and is highly displeased, with the Negligence and Inattention of those Officers, who have placed as Centries at the out-posts, Men with whose Character they are not acquainted. He therefore orders, that for the future, no Man shall be appointed to those important Stations, who is not a Native of this Country, or has a Wife, or Family in it, to whom he is known to be attached. This Order is to be consider’d as a standing one and the Officers are to pay obedience to it at their peril.” - 11 Fox, Adj. Gen. of the day. 9

Sound reasoning existed behind what may seem a harsh edict at first glance to those without any military experience. However, the explanation is contained in Washington’s many pleas to Congress expressing what was being experienced on the battlefield as justification for his actions. There was a morale problem and there was an abuse problem affecting the operations of Washington’s military. The problem was so severe, the tone was reflected in literally hundreds of letters, speeches and essays, all the way through to his infamous Farewell Address.10 Some of his direct misgivings are noted in the following examples.

Regarding the morale problem noted on May 7th, 1777 at Morristown:

“Dear Sir: I take the liberty to ask you what Congress expects I am to do with the many foreigners that have at different times been promoted to the rank of field-officers, and by their last resolve two of that of colonels? These men have no attachment for the country further than interest binds them. Our officers think it exceedingly hard, after they have toiled in the service and have sustained many losses, to have strangers put over them, whose merit perhaps is not equal to their own, but who effrontery will take no denial. It is by the zeal and activity of our own people that the cause must be supported, and not by the few hungry adventurers. I am, &c., GEO. WASHINGTON.”

Regarding the frustration, future reflections and regret; a letter to Gouverneur Morris, Esq., White Plains, July 24th, 1778:

“Dear Sir: The design of this is to touch cursorily upon a subject of very great importance to the well-being of these states, much more so than will appear at first sight – I mean the appointment of so many foreigners to offices of high rank and trust in our service.

The lavish manner in which rank has hitherto be bestowed on these gentlemen, will certainly be productive of one or the other of these two evils, either to make us despicable in the eyes of Europe, or become a means of pouring them in upon us like a torrent, and adding to our present burden. But it is neither the expense nor the trouble of them I most dread; there is an evil more extensive in its nature and fatal in its consequence to be apprehended, and that is, the driving of all our officers out of the service, and throwing not only our own army, but our military councils, entirely into the hands of foreigners. …

The expediency and policy of the measure remains to be considered, and whether it is consistent with justice or prudence to promote these military fortune-hunters at the hazard of our army. Baron Steuben, I now find, is also wanting to quit his inspectorship for a command in the line. This will be productive of much discontent. In a word, although I think the Baron an excellent officer, I do most devoutly wish – that we had not a single foreigner amongst us, except the Marquis de Lafayette, who acts upon very different principles from those which govern the rest.

Adieu. I am, most sincerely yours, GEORGE WASHINGTON.”

Regarding the abusive greed fostered by a lack of personal resolve. A letter of George Washington to Gouverneur Morris. White Plains, 24th July, 1778

“… The officers, my dear sir, on whom you most depend for the defence of this cause, distinguished by length of service, their connections, property, and, in behalf of many, I may add, military merit, will not submit, much if any longer, to the unnatural promotion of men over them, who have nothing more than a little plausibility, unbounded pride and amibition, and a perseverance in application not to be resisted but by uncommon firmness, to support their pretensions; men, who, in the first instance, tell you they wish for nothing more than the honor of serving in so glorious a cause as volunteers, the next day solicit rank without pay, the day following want money advanced to them, and in the course of a week want further promotion, and are not satisfied with any thing you can do for them.” 11

With the success and security of the country in mind, it became incumbent and necessary to review this portion of history that lays down the initial rules and conditions required from the direction of the first Commanding Officer. It encapsulates how fidelity was identified, measured and enforced in order to secure the objectives of liberty and freedom. The evidence begins with the Revolution as it illustrates the evolved requirements in leadership that take shape as a matter of course and experience. It illuminates the criteria set in choosing those worthy and trusting of rank; that being: A native-born American, who has verifiable connections and family who reside and hold property within the country.

This sets the stage for the legislative review of the second section which further developes this criteria in the same vein as George Washington, the “father genius” of the Revolution and framer of the Constitution of the United States of America.

“His last scene comported with the whole tenor of his life. Although in extreme pain, not a sigh, not a groan escaped him; and with undisturbed serenity he closed his well-spent’life. Such was the man America has lost — such was the man for whom our nation mourns.

‘Cease, sons of America, lamenting our separation. Go on and confirm, by your wisdom, the fruits of our joint councils, joint efforts, and common dangers; reverence religion; diffuse knowledge throughout your lands; patronize the arts and sciences; let liberty and order be inseparable companions. Control party spirit, the bane of free government; observe good faith to, and cultivate peace with, all nations; shut up every avenue to foreign influence; contract rather than extend national connections; rely on yourselves only; be Americans in thought, word and deed. Thus will you give immortality to that union which was the constant object of my terrestrial labors; thus will you preserve undisturbed, to the latest posterity, the felicity of a people to me most dear; and thus will you supply (if my happiness is now ought to you) the only vacancy in the round of pure bliss high Heaven bestows’.

Methinks I see his august image, and hear falling from his venerable lips these deep-sinking words“; –

Senate-seeker wants Obama birth-certificate treatment - Mexican-born candidate: ‘If I didn’t prove citizenship, I’d be removed from the ballot’ -

By Chelsea Schilling - A Mexican-born candidate for U.S. Senate said he is considering a lawsuit against the Missouri secretary of state for discrimination because her office forced him to produce a birth certificate but “didn’t make Obama show proof of citizenship” to appear on the ballot.

Hector Maldonado, 38, a self-described “Lincolnian Republican conservative,” is seeking the Republican nomination for U.S. Senate in Missouri. He was born one of 10 children in Durango, Mexico. His father is a migrant field worker who owns a small hog ranch in Perris, Calif.

During the following July 5 interview with Karen Berka of Branson Radio Live posted on YouTube, Maldonado explains why he thinks his rights were violated when the secretary of state’s office asked for proof of U.S. citizenship when he filed to run for the Senate: [video embedded below]

Maldonado, a U.S. Army combat veteran who served in Iraq and Afghanistan, explains on his website that he became a U.S. citizen in 1995. But he said Secretary of State Robin Carnahan sent him a letter in May asking him to produce documentation.

“It said, ‘Hey, you have to prove you’re a citizen.’ I ignored it,” he said. “You know, Obama ignored it, so I figured I could get away with it, too.”

The audience began laughing, applauding and cheering during his statement.

Maldonado continued, “But it’s not that simple. I didn’t get away with it. I got a certified letter from Ms. Robin Carnahan’s office saying that if I did not prove that I was a U.S. citizen, then I would be removed from the ballot.”

He claims Carnahan’s office gave him a deadline of May 12.

“I got all my documents together: my birth certificate, which is a Mexican birth certificate; my naturalization certificate; my orders sending me to Iraq and Afghanistan; my bronze-star citations and a couple of officer evaluations that say I’m a pretty good and effective leader,” he said. “So I brought all this documentation, and they were only interested in the naturalization certificate. They made a photocopy of it.”

Maldonado said he asked Carnahan’s office if his citizenship documentation would be public record and available to anyone who wants a copy.

“They said, oh yes, absolutely, anyone that wants proof, we have it,” he explained. “I said, OK, can you do me a favor then? I’m sure Ms. Carnahan requested the same of Barack Obama when he petitioned to get on the Missouri ballot to become president.”

He added, “They had no response. They had nothing.” …
The Bizarre 3rd US Circuit Court of Appeals
from The Betrayal by David-Crockett

Lame Cherry published

Attorney Mario Apuzzo has been progressing a case based upon the British Nationality Act of 1948 which confirms that B. Hussein Obama is a British subject, and invalidated from being a President of these United States, as the utmost safeguard to America is that only a natural born Citizen may serve in the one office which controls the military of the United States, which can be unleashed on Citizens.

Mr. Appuzo’s case was rejected by a lower court and in appeal to the 3rd US Circuit Court, three judges there dismissed the case as “frivolous”.

In a quote from WND, these three judges in Dolores Sloviter, Maryanne Trump Barry and Thomas Hardiman, came up with thee most bizarre of reasons. (I’m surprised they didn’t cite the Commerce Clause as that is what these treacherous purveyors of usurpation hide behind in everything legal.)

They added that plaintiffs’ injuries are not ‘concrete and particularized’ because they are ‘harms that are suffered by many or all of the American people.’”

Let the above be put into literal historical layman’s terms. These three treacherites, stated that the Nuremberg Trials should not have taken place as Jews had no standing, because the harms of the Nazi regime were suffered by many nationalities and all the Jewish people.
If that is too, Souter, Sotomayor, Ginsburg, Breyer and Kagan international law, let the 3rd’s treachery reach into America.

In that, these treacherites have stated that all the money which amounts to billions in real dollars which the US Government, and Obama just afforded to Hawaiians, that Indians have been awarded in reservations, moneys and payments for the Black Hills, which was not the Sioux’s land in the first place, are null and void, as all Indians have suffered the same harms.
The 3rd’s ruling ends the reservation system, as it was create by the same Obama executive and same Obama legislative.

Taking this a literal step further, these treacherites of Obama, have stated all the money confiscated from cigarette companies was illegal, because too many people suffered from cigarette ailments, and in a current proposition, Barack Hussein Obama extorting 20 billion dollars from British Petroleum had no right, as Obama in tarballing the entire GOP Gulf States spread the slick around too much, as every American there is suffering from the same thing.

To put it mildly, Dolores Sloviter, Maryanne Trump Barry and Thomas Hardiman are idiots of the Obama idiotry.

Can you imagine what Patrick Henry would say in hearing these three treacherites state that it is frivolous to defend the Constitution when the entire Obama thugocracy and seated Obamites are shredding the Constitution and refuse with these three accomplices on the 3rd Circuit Court of Appeal to follow the Constitution in making Mr. Obama produce a valid birth certificate proving he is natural born in Hawaii or any other American State, by of legal age American parent or parents?

These three judges are not judges in the least, but outlaws.

What injuries in fact would these judges deem suitable? Mark Levin suffering from high blood pressure and coughing a lung up daily, because Obama is in the process of ruining Mr. Levin’s ability to make a living in silencing him?

Does it need to be physical harm or can it be mental anguish?

Just what are the parameters of these judges rules? Is Obama having US Soldiers murdered in Afghanistan in his traitorous rules of engagement allowing them to be shot by terrorists anguish enough or are too many Soldiers dying so that is not valid, any more than now all Americans are endangered by Obama’s Faisal Fizzlers.
Does it have to be one person, three people, what is the cut off point of injury that gives one standing?
Does it only apply to black people while white people are threatened by Obama predators from voting?
Does Rod Blagojevich and his family qualify in the personal issue of Mr. Obama initiating the crime Mr. Blagojevich is on trial for, or is it as that fraud judge ruled in nothing about Obama can appear in court as Mr. Blagojevich has no right to a fair trial in America while Obama rules as tyrant and the courts is ruling as despots.

The Obama courts are insane as he is. If it is Lt. Col. Terry Lakin, he is the criminal for being just one man. When it is Mario Apuzzo, well then Mr. Apuzzo is too many people, so the court makes him a criminal in threatening court costs.

Why is it that in all the court filings Mr. Obama is making with Mr. Holder against Americans, that the courts never threaten in dismissing Obama and Holder’s cases them personally to pay for their “frivolous” cases against Arizona or the working people of the GOP Gulf Coast?

Amazing isn’t it eh, when the tyrant in thief is in charge, and the entire body politic of whores is doing Obama’s bidding in the brothel he has made of the virgin bride of America’s sacred Constitutional bed, that everything like Obama is like O.J. Simpson, until the tides of time changed and God’s Justice was found in Nevada Courts.

Mr. Obama has initiated a revolution in America by assaulting her, bankrupting her and changing the courts of justice to kangaroo courts where Holder holds mock trials in justice not done. Revolution is a two way street as the British taskmasters found out after brutalizing Americans with whip and the hangman’s noose.
Today’s Americans made criminals by Obama mandates and courts, will tomorrow be the hearings dispensing American Justice not only on the regime, but the Vichy which betrayed a nation and collaborated with a usurper.

The United States Courts are fraud. They are Fitzgerald puppets of the regime and hide high crimes against America in “standing” and “commerce”.

Some note that America is in a monetary situation mirroring the Great Depression exactly. No one has noted that America is in a judicial situation mirroring 1775 with Americans criminalized by the tyrant’s courts.

It is now frivolous to defend the Constitution and uphold American Law, and when an entire American People suffers under tyranny, well they have no right to Declare Independence from that tyranny as far too many people are being harmed.

When the courts are no longer just, the courts are just legalized criminals in robes.

IS OBAMA WORSE THAN KING GEORGE III? (He sure is King George was no Muslim)
by Sher Zieve, ©2010

(Jul. 11, 2010) — “When, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the laws of nature and of nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.” This is the opening paragraph of the thirteen United States colonies’ declaration of independence from the then tyrannical England on 4 July 1776. It was then and remains today the primary seminal founding document of the United States of America.

Our Declaration of Independence was affirmed against the despot King George III. However, with only a few modifications I submit that this same declaration could be filed today against the current regime now ruling–not governing–over We-the-People of the United States of America. I would also submit that the reason for my statement is already contained within our country’s founding document. Note: For those of you who were actually schooled in our nation’s documents of origin, this will be a brief refresher course. For those who were not taught about them, I would suggest a reading assignment beginning with the “Declaration of Independence” referenced below.

Our founders’ reasons for dissolving the bonds between England and the emerging USA were myriad. But, it is uncanny and may even be a bit unsettling to discover that the motivations for We-the-People breaking away from King George III are the same ones we find in our current US government today. Let’s take a look.

Some of the causes for our founders declaring independence from England and the similar if not almost identical conditions existing in the USA today are contained within the original Declaration of Independence. They are:

1. D of I: “He [King George] has refused his assent to laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.”
A. Current: He [Obama] is now refusing to allow sovereign US States to enact laws to protect themselves. Example: AZ passing an almost mirror image [but more restrictive to AZ law enforcement] bill of federal immigration law, in order to protect itself from drug cartels, kidnappings, human trafficking and foreign invasion. Obama & Co is now suing Arizona for attempting to protect itself; claiming that it is the US government’s sole purview to decide to either protect or NOT to protect the US-Mexico border. Note: In this way, as the US government is not going after other States who already have similar laws on their books–including but, not limited to Rhode Island and California–it strongly appears that there may actually have been some backroom deal between Obama and Mexican President Felipe Calderon to cede the State of Arizona to Mexico. By the way, did you know that Obama is using YOUR tax dollars to sue Arizona?

2. D of I: “He [King George] has forbidden his governors to pass laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.”
A. Current: This follows almost exactly in conjunction with #1 above. Obama says he has the sole right and ability to make decisions for the States. Obama forbade Arizona Governor Jan Brewer from attempting to protect her State and its citizens from foreign invasion. Obama encouraged a foreign government (Mexico) to also file a lawsuit against the US State of Arizona! This is patently treasonous behavior being affected and committed by the Usurper Obama. Obama is also gearing up to enact lawsuits against and to fight all other sovereign US States filing lawsuits against the blatantly unconstitutional ObamaCare. Again…with YOUR tax dollars and against the consent of the governed–now known as “the ruled ”

3. D of I: “ He [King George] has refused to pass other laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of representation in the legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.”
A. Current: He [Obama] told Senator Jon Kyl (R-AZ) that he will NOT protect the border and the American people until Republicans agree to immigration reform–aka “Amnesty.” Again, the usurper is refusing to protect American citizens unless they submit to his will. And, again, treason, folks–purely and simply.

4. D of I: “He [King George] has obstructed the administration of justice, by refusing his assent to laws for establishing judiciary powers.”
A. Current: “He [Obama] and his DOJ overturned a legal decision–perpetrators caught on video–against Obama-supporters The New Black Panthers who blocked and threatened white voters in Philadelphia. According to sworn testimony before a Congressional Committee, former DOJ Attorney J. Christian Adams said that Obama’s DOJ has no intention of upholding the Voting Rights Act if white people are the victims and black people are the perpetrators. Adams said that in November 2009 Deputy Assistant Attorney General Julie Fernandes also stated about the voter list integrity (including listed dead people, felons, people who had moved out of the area etc.): “We have no interest in enforcing this provision of the law. It has nothing to do with increasing turnout, and we are just not going to do it!” Obama and his faux “department of justice” are clearly no longer following or enforcing the law of the land.

5. D of I: “He [King George] has made judges dependent on his will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.”
A. Current: He [Obama] appears to have trained and/or intimidated judges into using the “you have no standing” excuse in order to disallow anyone from viewing his true birth certificate. Currently, no one in the United States has “standing” to demand or even request that a copy of Obama’s BC be made available to determine whether or not he is even eligible for the POTUS position. Insane.

6. D of I: “He [King George] has erected a multitude of new offices, and sent hither swarms of officers to harass our people, and eat out their substance.”
A. Current: He [Obama] created ObamaCare for and with the expressed purpose of creating hundreds of new offices staffed with ObamaBureaucrats to control We-the-People. He has now created more new “offices” than any other POTUS in history.

There are more similarities–if not exact matches–between the tyrannies employed by King George III and those now being affected against the American people by Obama and his Marxist regime. I encourage everyone to read or reread the extraordinary Declaration of Independence. When tyrannies become so apparent that said tyranny and oppression of the people are seen in the light of day we must acknowledge them, warn others and prepare to fight in earnest. If not, we will lose all hope of freedom and liberty today and into the future. We will have become slaves to the Police State; this time Obama’s. Prepare yourselves and your loved ones, folks. It is coming very soon.

The U.S. Government: Lilly-Livered, Weak-Kneed, and Hopelessly Corrupt
from The Betrayal by David-Crockett

Rome BurnsThe budget should be balanced. Public debt should be reduced. The arrogance of officialdom should be tempered, and assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed, lest Rome become bankrupt.” (Marcus Tullius Cicero, philosopher and statesman of Rome – 106 BC to 43 BC)

(Jul. 11, 2010) — The most powerful nation on Earth? Hardly! With our apologies to the fairer sex, America is ruled by the pink-panty crowd, afraid to offend, afraid to portray strength and afraid to win, but not afraid to deceive, lie, cheat and steal. It apologizes when no apology is warranted. It skirts around victory with our sworn enemies but refuses to close the deal in the hopes that our friends and enemies will “like” us and think we are being magnanimous and compassionate. The true reality is, our enemies look upon us as weak. Brave men and women have died and sacrificed needlessly for wars we didn’t have the stomach to win. That should be a treasonous act.

We cut one-sided deals with dictators in countries with nuclear ambitions, who purposely ignore their promises, then take our ”goodies” and continue their nuclear programs in the dark of night and in secret.. Our stupidity gives them the time to harden their nuclear operations underground, where our bombs can’t reach them.

We negotiate in weakness with our enemies, who then stab us in the back at every opportunity. Instead of holding them accountable for not honoring their contracts or treaties, we enter into more worthless contracts and treaties and provide more goodies. It’s a shakedown at best and the American taxpayer gets to pay for the egregious mistakes made at the hands of their corrupt and negligent government.

Generals in our military are sick of playing pussy foot with our enemies when they know they have the power to conquer any country on Earth ….. a power that is denied them by the inept, inexperienced, spineless and pink-panty- wearing leaders of America. General McCrystal finally had it and laid bare the festering anger and frustration that permeates a military rendered almost impotent by a community organizer and the inmates that have taken control of the asylum known as the U. S. Congress. Obama is a Lilly-livered, weak-kneed village idiot that should have never become president, if the media had exposed the sordid details of his entire socialist/Marxist life, early on in the campaign, or answered, once and for all, whether Obama is a natural born citizen of America, as required by the Constitution.

Then there is the matter of illegal immigration. We will prosecute wars in foreign lands at great cost to the taxpayer and the blood and treasure of our young men and women in uniform, but we refuse to protect our national borders against an invasion of people who seek our generous benefits, without having to go through the proper doors and pay the price of admission. It is so bad that open warfare has erupted all along our Southern border and we shrink from engaging the perpetrators, while tens of thousands of illegal aliens, drugs and white slaves pour into America every month. Each month America’s national culture is diluted by the poor folk of broken and corrupt countries, who seek not to assimilate but to “steal” our jobs and our safety net generosity. We send billions to Mexico to fight the border war, at taxpayer expense, but won’t put the resources on our own border to seal it. That too is treason and a direct violation of the government’s absolute duty to defend America from all enemies, foreign and domestic. Further, government refuses to enforce current law on businesses hiring illegal aliens, thus increasing the power of the magnet that draws them here in the first place.

Every month the cost of this invasion by the hordes from poor countries gets larger and larger, while those who occupy the seats of power in what is America’s Rome, use the chaos at the border as blackmail to pass amnesty legislation. This amnesty they desire is not for altruistic or compassionate reasons, but is for the sole purpose of adding socialist-minded illegal aliens to the voting rolls, to maintain perpetual liberal-progressive power.

The only thing that will save America from this unprecedented and hostile invasion by a foreign power, is putting troops and unmanned drones on the border with orders to shoot to kill anyone found crossing the border, outside of authorized border crossings. If this was done, illegal crossings would cease almost immediately. Irrational compassion will be the death of us.

The only way to win the war in Afghanistan is to use an over-powering force and bring the entire country to its knees with nothing less than unconditional surrender, just as we did in World War II. This includes the taking down of the current corrupt government. Anything less is a stab in the hearts of those who are forced to meet this enemy with rules of engagement requiring their hands be tied behind their backs and their guns empty. More treason!

This author bears no illusions that the Lilly-livered, weak-kneed criminals and cowards in Washington DC will do any such thing. So be prepared for the all-out invasion of our Southern border to continue and the war in Afghanistan to go on indefinitely, or we will pull out with our tale between our legs just as we did in Vietnam, with the sacrifices of our dead and wounded having been for naught.

On the other hand, there is one area in which the prevailing power in Washington DC shows great courage. For this deed they have put on their iron jockey shorts and grabbed their swords, spears and body armor. They are not at all reticent about passing law after law to subjugate the American people and take away their liberties. They show no cowardice in giving up American sovereignty by ratifying unconstitutional treaties. They lack no courage when it comes to spending America into bankruptcy, or nationalizing businesses, or destroying the engine that made America the most powerful and generous nation on Earth ….. Capitalism.

Their arrogance and elitism is open and notorious. They cannot tolerate criticism and look down on the people from their ivory towers of corruption. It has been reported that they have sent copies of the Constitution to be used in all of Washington DC’s restrooms, but not for reading. They thumb their collective noses at those who oppose them. They demean the tea party movement as being nothing more than a bunch of rabble rousers who seek to overthrow the American government and are just a hair’s breath away from violent acts to do just that, in the spirit of Timothy McVeigh.

They seek to pass legislation to silence their critics by controlling the print and electronic media in a scheme called the “Fairness” Doctine. They pass legislation to further the brainwashing of our impressionable and gullible school children, who are forced to attend our public schools of indoctrination. They pass legislation to lock up all of our resources and confiscate private property, with reckless disregard of constitutional protections.

These Lilly-livered, weak-kneed apologists, partner with national and international money changers, power brokers, socialists and radical environmentalists to lock up America in the distorted image of Europe and the United Nations and further their goal towards global government. These internationalists are intent upon stealing America’s wealth, its resources, its freedom and its very sovereignty.

The people and the states that gave the federal government its limited power, as codified in Article I, Section 8 of the U.S. Constitution, need to rein in that government, or this Lilly-livered, weak-kneed, cowardice and corrupt government will usurp all power and render the states and the people impotent and slaves of the realm.
