America is No Longer a Republic Form of Government

by Lonnie B. Collett

Is Obama controlled by a "puppetmaster," or more than one, who abhor freedom and the American way of life?

(Apr. 30, 2012) — It is time we quit fooling ourselves; we have allowed the corrupt majority of Congress and an illegal President to deceive us. Opportunity for success was never stopped in America until this administration gain control. By now most of America knows that Barack Obama was fraudulently elected into office as our President. He was elected with a preplanned agenda of using the Cloward and Piven Strategy to increase government spending to the point where it is destroying our way of life, moving us towards the United Nations preplanned “One World Government.” I understand that this program has been in the making for over 20 years.

We are led to believe that our only hope is by voting Obama out of office in the November election. Voting Obama into office to begin with was corrupt, and it appears that plans to continue his Presidency will be just as corrupt as well.

It is rumored that George Soros, Obama’s biggest contributor, has invested in SCYTL, a vote-counting company located in Spain which has already been approved by Obama and Congress to count America’s election votes in November. Soros has often been referred to as the “Puppetmaster” by Glenn Beck, who feels as most patriotic Americans do that Soros controls Obama.

We know that this will make our votes a waste of our time. I have seen America go from the Land of Opportunity to Socialism and heading rapidly towards another Communist country run by a dictator. Presently hoping that America will turn back to our Republic form of Government is like taking a chance on the lotto: one in a million.

Our only hope, and I mean our only hope, is proving this year prior to the election that Obama is not qualified to be our President, and everything that he has accomplished in his mission to destroy our world is null and void. He must be removed from office and tried for treason. He swore an allegiance to our Constitution and has made numerous efforts to ignore it. Several court cases have been filed against him just to prove who he really is by asking him to show his sealed documents. Not only has he refused to show them, but all of our so-called “representatives” in Congress are dodging their constituents’ demands that they be shown to the public to end the controversy once and for all. They leave us with the impression that their “life” or “position in Congress” would be in peril.

We all know that the documents that he has sealed will only prove that he never was eligible. Just stating that his father was a Kenyan citizen makes Obama ineligible, but the disbelieving citizens must see further proof, so….America, what is left of our choices? See his sealed records, or we are doomed to One World Government’s Agenda 21 and its loss of freedom.

The Lion’s Lunch!

(Apr. 22, 2012) — “Never has a putative president been so arrogant and narcissistic as has been Barack Hussein Obama. Never has a president been so out of touch with the principles of American freedom. Never has someone been so set on increasing the power of the presidency through executive orders, directives to his cabinet and recess appointments, with every intent to circumvent the U. S. Congress. Never has a president been elected to office with a platform containing no substance whatsoever. Never has a president apologized for America, as has this one, as if he was embarrassed to be an American. Never has a president done so much in secret when he promised transparency. Never has a de facto president done more to conceal his identity, his past and who he really is. Never has a president done more to poke his finger in the eye of America’s Judeo-Christian heritage. Never has a president presented more of a danger to America’s sovereignty, security and freedom than has Barack Hussein Obama. Never has a president been more deserving of being denied a second term in office.” — Ron Ewart

We have been writing about the issues facing America and Americans well before our current president came on the scene. We have tried valiantly to stay focused on those issues and have specifically avoided a major attack on past presidents, or our current president. But we can no longer remain silent. Every major issue facing Americans today can be traced back to a false ideology that has become embedded in most if not all American institutions. No icon of that ideology is more representative than the man who now calls himself President of the United States.

For over 100 years the progressive (socialist) movement has wormed its way into the body politic one institution at a time. Its rise has been subtle, its methods overt, its influence both multi-cultural and global and its message full of lies. Its goal was and is power and control over the masses. Progressivism has been so successful that they finally ran a president who brought its ideology out into the open for all to see, in the persona of one ghostly, mysterious, anti-American Barack Hussein Obama.

He wasted no time in further institutionalizing the progressive cause by making the general population totally subservient to a rapidly rising debt and a deficit that show no signs of ever abating well into the future. Without constitutional authority, Obama nationalized large businesses and gave preferential treatment to his political allies. With our tax money he picked his own winners and losers, based on the false science of man-caused global warming and CO2 emissions. Many of his so-called winners became heavy losers at the taxpayers’ expense.

With the help of a willing Democrat Congress he nationalized America’s health care industry, vastly increased regulations on business and passed massive stimulus bills that were nothing more than earmarks and payoffs to friendly constituents. He has thumbed his nose at our foreign friends and heaped praise and American dollars on our enemies. He has circumvented the Congress when they would not do his bidding, by issuing executive orders or directives to his cabinet. He has turned away from increasing benefits to our brave men and women in uniform and is working to gut our national defense. He has vigorously pushed a United Nations international socialist and environmental agenda down the throats of Americans with reckless disregard for American sovereignty and the unalienable rights of the American people. He would reward those who come to America illegally and has purposely done so by executive order or directives to the INS.

But let’s put aside Obama’s very strange past. Forget for a moment his Kenyan father, or his associations with Bill Ayers (anarchist), Reverend Wright (Black Liberation Theologist), Frank Davis (communist) Tony Rezko (born in Syria and now in jail) and Van Jones (communist), Obama’s previous green jobs Czar and all of Obama’s highly questionable cabinet secretaries and Czars. Let’s forget his Muslim roots from Indonesia with his 2nd father and the two Pakistani Muslims he lived with when attending Occidental College in California, as a “foreign” student. Let’s throw out the question about how he paid for his college tuition at Harvard, or where he got the money to jet all over the planet (including Pakistan). We won’t even consider where Obama got the $1.65 million to buy a home in Chicago, (on a $12,000 per year salary) or that Rezko’s wife bought the lot next door to the home Obama just purchased, or that an Iraqi-born Billionaire loaned Rezko $3.5 million, three weeks before Obama’s new home was purchased. And for the moment we will look the other way about his 2012 campaign video message to the black community about “African Americans for Obama.” Can you imagine what would happen if Romney created a video entitled, “White Americans for Romney“? All hell would break loose and Romney would be disqualified to run for president, but Obama gets a pass.

Then of course there is the subject of Obama’s many birth certificates and multiple Social Security cards but we’ll discard this information as well. After all, these things are just “unimportant” details about the leader of the free world, the president of the United States. There are no dots to connect or inconsistencies here! Right?

Ladies and gentlemen, pushing all of these “unimportant” details aside, if Obama is given a 2nd term in office, the damage he could do may very well be irreversible, especially when considering his Executive Order pen never stops and he could appoint more liberal/socialist judges to the U. S. Supreme Court ….. for life! That must not be allowed to happen.

But as is all too apparent, Obama has millions of mesmerized followers (Blacks, Latinos, bought-off freeloaders and loyal voters) and those millions just may be large enough for him to sail into a 2nd term without much effort. Obama has the mainstream media in his pocket. He has significant international support. He has plenty of vested interest money behind him, national and international. Much of the general world ideology is in keeping with Obama’s ”fundamental transformation” for America. He is either part of the global elite, or he is a puppet of the global elite.

The only thing that stands between Obama and an assured win, are millions of American conservatives. A divided conservative electorate between religious right conservatives, constitutional conservatives, moderate conservatives, third-party conservatives, or tea party conservatives will virtually give Obama a 2nd term. Unification of conservatives is America’s only weapon against an Obama win, no matter who challenges him for President. 2012 must be the year when “Conservatives Roar as One Lion“, or you can kiss a free America goodbye! That’s right! It is that important!

Ladies and gentlemen, conservatives are the lions that don’t back down from a fight. We’re the ones that get going when the going gets tough. Conservatives are the ones that rely on themselves or each other in a pinch. They don’t rely on the government as liberals do. Conservatives find their way out of a hole; they don’t look for someone to bail them out as the freeloaders did in New Orleans. Tough, self-reliant, independent conservatives built America and won wars. People with their hands out to government build nothing and win nothing; they just take from the rest of us. Are there some people who need our help, of course? But, we should be reducing this number, not growing it.

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, “The Parallax Prophecies” predicts that even though divided as we are as conservatives, we can still take on Obama and defeat him handily if we will just rally around and unite on a simple idea, or a simple image, or a simple message, or a slogan and make it go viral.

Do you have an idea, image, message, or slogan that you think conservatives could unite around? If you do, please send them to We’ll take the top five ideas and submit them to our sizable audience for a vote. The idea, image, or slogan that gets the most votes will be heavily promoted by us to make it go viral. The cutoff date for submissions is midnight on Friday, May 18, 2012.

Let this year be the year of “The Lion” when “Conservatives Roar as One Lion” and let “The Lion’s Lunch” be Barack Hussein Obama and his regime.

Journalism is Dead
by Paul R. Hollrah, ©2012

Editor's Note: Re-posted with permission of The Post & Email.

(Apr. 22, 2012) — We all know what physicians do, we all know what teachers do, we all know what scientists and engineers do, and we all know what lawyers do. But do we understand what it is that journalists do? We are told by those in the profession that the journalist is one who searches for truth so that the truth can be communicated to the masses. But is that really the case?If one were to believe the hype that is circulated in the media on behalf of one of their own, the recently departed Mike Wallace, it would require what Hillary Clinton might describe as a “willing suspension of disbelief.” One does not have to be a “news junkie” to understand that the mainstream media is governed by left-wing political bias and that it is just as important to know which stories they fail to report as it is to recognize the bias in the stories they do.Wikipedia, the online encyclopedia, tells us that, “Depending on the context, the term journalist may include various types of editors, editorial writers, columnists, and visual journalists, such as photojournalists… Journalism has developed a variety of ethics and standards. While objectivity and a lack of bias are often considered important, some types of journalism, such as advocacy journalism, intentionally adopt a non-objective viewpoint.”Not once is the word truth mentioned. That part of the conventional wisdom about the journalism profession… the notion that the journalist engages in a search for truth… is a fiction that has been created by “journalists” in order to enhance their standing as professionals.So the question arises, is it possible to have a free nation without a free press? The answer to that question is… perhaps, but only for a brief period of time.What causes us to consider this question now is the growing body of evidence surrounding the eligibility of Barack Hussein Obama to be president of the United States. From the day that he announced his candidacy, it was widely known that he lacked status as a “natural born Citizen,” one of the three principal qualifications for the office. Yet, the men and women of the media totally ignored that critical shortcoming.Then, throughout the 2008 presidential primaries, when Obama’s principal opponent was Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-NY), hundreds of bloggers and freelance writers of the “alternative media” researched his background, producing thousands of authoritative articles and editorials for print media and the Internet. The “journalists” of the mainstream media, captivated by the notion of helping to elect the first black president, ignored the story.As powerful as the Clinton political machine might have been, they were no match for the fraud, violence, and intimidation practiced by the Obama forces. Hollywood producer Bettina Viviano produced a documentary titled We Will Not Be Silenced, which told the story of the criminal misdeeds committed by the Obama campaign against Clinton supporters. The men and women of the mainstream media ignored the documentary evidence and Obama was nominated by the delegates to the Democratic National Convention, 3,188.5 votes to Clinton’s 1,010.5.At the close of the convention, it was the responsibility of the convention chairman, Nancy Pelosi, and convention secretary Alice Travis Germond, to certify the names, home addresses, and constitutional eligibility of the party’s nominees to the 50 state election boards so that ballots could be printed. Pursuant to Hawaii Revised Statutes §11-113, the certification sent only to the State of Hawaii contained the following affirmation:“THIS IS TO CERTIFY that at the National Convention of the Democrat Party of the United States of America, held in Denver, Colorado on August 25 though (sic) 28, 2008, the following were duly nominated candidates of said Party for President and Vice President of the United States respectively and that the following candidates for President and Vice President of the United States are legally qualified to serve under the provisions of the United States Constitution.” The remaining forty-nine states received the following certification:“THIS IS TO CERTIFY that at the National Convention of the Democrat Party of the United States of America, held in Denver, Colorado on August 25 though (sic) 28, 2008, the following were duly nominated as candidates of said Party for President and Vice President of the United States respectively:”Affixed were the names and home addresses of Barack Obama and Joe Biden. However, the phrase, “… and that the following candidates for President and Vice President of the United States are legally qualified to serve under the provisions of the United States Constitution” was omitted from certifications sent to those 49 states. Other than that, the documents were exactly the same… even to the misspelling of the word “through” in the second line of the certifications. Hawaii is the only state with a law requiring the certification of constitutional eligibility.Clearly, Nancy Pelosi and Alice Travis Germond… and presumably other senior Democratic officials… were aware when they nominated him that Obama was ineligible to serve as president of the United States. But if the top leaders of the Democratic Party knew, then so did the men and women of the mainstream media. Yet, they looked the other way, knowing that the Democrats had nominated a man who was ineligible to hold the office of president.Throughout the 2008 General Election campaign, writers and bloggers of the “alternative media” continued to publish details of Obama’s lack of qualifications, but the men and women of the mainstream media continued to look the other way.In the three and one-half years that Obama has been in office, numerous lawsuits have been brought against Obama, charging that he is ineligible to serve in the office he occupies. A number of cases were examined by the members of the Supreme Court for grant of certiorari, but all were denied for “lack of standing,” taking the position that the people of the United States had no right to demand that their president be eligible to hold that office. The men and women of the mainstream media were fully aware of those efforts but, again, they looked the other way.Finally, during the month of April 2011, billionaire developer Donald Trump took an interest in the issue and openly questioned the circumstances of Obama’s birth. With the added attention brought by Trump’s inquiries, Obama caused what appeared to be an authentic long form birth certificate to be uploaded to the White House website on April 27, 2011. Within days, dozens of the nation’s most knowledgeable forensics experts examined the document and found it to be a poorly crafted forgery.Finally, on Thursday morning, August 18, 2011, the leaders of the Surprise, Arizona Tea Party presented Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio with a petition bearing the signatures of 242 county residents. The petition questioned whether or not a fake birth certificate could be used to document Barack Obama’s eligibility to have his name appear on the Maricopa County ballot in the November 2012 General Election. The petition requested that Sheriff Arpaio conduct a criminal investigation of the alleged forgery.Sheriff Arpaio assigned the task to a five-member team of retired attorneys and law enforcement professionals, known as the Maricopa County Cold Case Posse. Following a six month intensive investigation, Sheriff Arpaio and the Cold Case Posse presented their findings on March 1, 2012 at a nationally televised press conference. Their findings provided conclusive evidence that the Obama birth certificate… and the Obama draft registration card… were, in fact, forgeries.Inasmuch as Obama himself testified to the authenticity of his birth document, the findings of Sheriff Arpaio’s Cold Case Posse represent a felony crime by Barack Obama. But, again, the men and women of the mainstream media refused to report the story.Barack Obama’s usurpation of the office of the presidency is the greatest crime ever committed against the people of the United States… a crime greater than the attack on Pearl Harbor, a crime greater than the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. But what is most shameful and most unforgivable about the crime is that the men and women of the mainstream media, those who are supposed to be the eyes and ears of the people, the ever-watchful guardians of our precious freedoms, stood idly by and allowed it to happen. They are as complicit in the crime as if they themselves had planned it.When the terrible national nightmare of the Obama presidency is finally behind us, Obama must be called to answer for his crimes. He deserves to spend the rest of his days behind bars. But those who were his principal enablers: the leaders of the Democrat Party, the men and women of the Congress who refused to properly vet him, and the men and women of the mainstream media who failed to properly vet him, must also be held accountable. Until that work is done, we must conclude that journalism is dead in America.We the People will have to find a way to insure that future generations will have all the benefits of a free press… a press for which the search for truth and justice is the paramount purpose.

What Kind of People are Employed by the Obama Regime?

by Sharon Rondeau

When will the Secret Service and FBI investigate this image and its creator?

(Apr. 21, 2012) — The Secret Service scandal first reported a week ago involves specially-trained agents whose salaries are paid by the U.S. taxpayer. The Secret Service boasts “five core values:” “justice, duty, courage, honesty and loyalty.” Its website states that each employee is “sworn to uphold these principles.” But do they swear an oath to the U.S. Constitution?

The Secret Service is contained within the Department of Homeland Security and is advertising job openings to those “driven by integrity.” One requirement to work for the Secret Service is U.S. citizenship. Was any current employee allowed to show a computer image of a birth certificate or naturalization papers to prove his citizenship as Obama has? If not, why are they protecting someone who will show no more than that?

The current director of the FBI, Robert S. Mueller, III, is highly-educated and a military veteran but has failed to respond to thousands of citizens filing a criminal complaint for treason against Barack Hussein Obama II for possible identity fraud, election fraud, forgery and other crimes. Local agencies have ignored repeated criminal complaints against Obama, as has at least one of Obama’s U.S. attorneys, William C. Killian.

Recently singer Ted Nugent called Obama and his coworkers “criminals” and received a call from the Secret Service which Nugent reported went smoothly.

Obama has reportedly harassed political opponents with tax audits from the IRS. The Post & Email was told that approximately half of the citizens who attended the assignment hearing for Walter Francis Fitzpatrick, III on April 20, 2010 were audited by the agency. Darren Huff, who was arrested ten days later and convicted for allegedly transporting firearms in interstate commerce with the intention to cause a civil disturbance, is now being accused after the fact of intent to kidnap public officials in the run-up to his sentencing by U.S. Attorney William C. Killian.

In October 2009, Anita Dunn, Obama’s Communications Director for six months, said that the campaign “made the press” cover what they thought was important “without actually having to talk to reporters.” “We controlled it,” she said, “as opposed to the press controlling it.”

Mao Tse-Dong, a ruthless communist killer, has been honored in the Obama White House by decorating the Christmas tree with his likeness and is one of Dunn’s favorite “philosophers.”

Putative Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner is suspected of advising AIG to hide information pertinent to the U.S. taxpayer-funded bailout effected in 2008 when he was serving as President of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. He was also found to have failed to pay a substantial amount in Social Security and Medicare taxes during his confirmation hearings.

Van Jones, Obama’s former “Special Advisor for Green Jobs,” resigned in the fall of 2009 because of his “controversial” and unvetted past, which included his participation in a Marxist advocacy group and support for a convicted murderer of a police officer.

Despite the non-vetting of Obama, he is apparently still using “community organizing” as the technique to be re-elected even as his birth certificate and Selective Service registration card have been analyzed by experts and deemed to be forgeries.

Obama’s Defense Secretary, Leon Panetta, has a communist connection. His new chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Martin Dempsey, has agreed with Panetta that they follow the international community’s lead in deciding whether or not to commit U.S. troops to war.

Al Sharpton, who has fomented rage over the death of Trayvon Martin, reportedly has “a very close relationship” with “the Obama White House” and Eric Holder. Could it be that Sharpton and Obama were trained in community organizing and racism by the same man?

And how about a dishonest U.S. Supreme Court Justice?

Yahoo! News is apparently suppressing results when looking for evidence of the putative Attorney General, Eric Holder, identifying members of the New Black Panthers, who were in default regarding the case of voter intimidation brought against them, as “my people.” The Post & Email is not. Holder has sued the states of Arizona and Alabama over their passage of strict bills to quell illegal immigration.

Holder has filed two lawsuits against Sheriff Joe Arpaio, whose Cold Case Posse has investigated Obama’s birth certificate and Selective Service registration card and found them to be “computer-generated forgeries.”

Now who is the forger?

The Obama Regime’s Culture of Corruption

by Sharon Rondeau

Editor's Note: Re-posted with permission of The Post & Email.

(Apr. 14, 2012) — “About a dozen” Secret Service agents and military members have been accused of misconduct while in Colombia in advance of Obama’s travel there for a Summit of the Americas conference. The Secret Service employees were returned to the United States, while the military personnel were ordered “confined to quarters.”

An author of a book about the Secret Service said that the scandal “is the biggest scandal in Secret Service history.” The Secret Service protects presidents, presidential candidates, former presidents and dignitaries visiting from other countries. Mark Sullivan, the director of the Secret Service, said in the 2010 annual report, “I am proud and honored to lead this elite team of professionals — special agents, uniformed officers, administrative, professional and technical specialists — who personify our motto ‘worthy of trust and confidence’ every day.”

The Secret Service’s stated mission is to “uphold the tradition of excellence in its investigative and protective mission through a dedicated, highly-trained, diverse, partner-oriented workforce that employs progressive technology and promotes professionalism.”

Originally formed in 1865 to prevent the counterfeiting of U.S. currency, the Secret Service continues to investigate that and other crimes today. After Patriot Act was signed into law in 2001, the Secret Service was given the responsibility of investigating “electronic crimes.“ Several of the Secret Service’s “Most Wanted” fugitives are accused of “identity theft.” Other suspects have been arrested for “identity theft,” among other “online” crimes.

Then why are members of the Secret Service not investigating the image presented to the public on April 27, 2011 as Obama’s “birth certificate” which has been declared a forgery by an investigative team from Maricopa County, AZ? Why are they not investigating Obama’s use of a social security number from Connecticut when he allegedly was born in Hawaii? The Secret Service has purview over the investigation of “forgery” and “computer fraud.”

On March 17, 2009, LCDR Walter Francis Fitzpatrick, III accused Obama of having committed treason by allowing U.S. Army troops to deploy and operate on the streets of Samson, AL under the direct supervision of General Martin Dempsey, who is now chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Two days later, Fitzpatrick received a visit from two Secret Service agents along with a Sweetwater Police Department officer. Toward the end of the interview, after which Fitzpatrick was not arrested, one of the agents told him, “We can’t arrest him, you know,” meaning Barack Hussein Obama, who Fitzpatrick had accused of being a “foreign born domestic enemy.” Others have named Obama in treason since Fitzpatrick’s initial complaint was filed.

If the Secret Service could not arrest Obama in March 2009, could they do it now based on the Cold Case Posse’s findings? Where is Obama’s documentation?

To our knowledge, neither the FBI nor any U.S. attorney in the country has taken action on criminal complaints against Obama and his criminal accomplices. The U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Tennessee has joined forces with the Knoxville office of the FBI to disseminate false and misleading information about Georgia citizen Darren Huff as well as Walter Fitzpatrick, whose complaint against the Monroe County grand jury is misstated as “primarily from the refusal of the Monroe County grand jury to indict President Obama” because he “was “not the legitimate President of the United States.” Rather, Fitzpatrick’s treason complaint against Obama and action against the acting grand jury foreman were unrelated.

Huff has spent nearly six months in a federal prison, although an eyewitness to the events in question stated that FBI agents perjured themselves at Huff’s trial.

Obama’s Secretary of Defense and Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman have declared that they take direction from international entities rather than from the U.S. Congress.

Obama’s putative Secretary of the Treasury, Timothy Geithner, failed to pay Social Security and Medicare taxes in the amount of almost $26,000, citing “carelessness.” He has since paid additional penalties to the IRS. Geithner has recently been questioned by New York City police regarding his possible role, as head of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, in instructing AIG to “limit its swaps disclosure” to the public.

Then there is Solyndra, in which $535,000,000 was loaned to the “green energy” company whose executives had supported Obama before the company declared bankruptcy last fall.

Obama has ties to convicted felons Tony Rezko and Rod Blagojevich. His putative attorney general, Eric Holder, refused to prosecute members of the New Black Panthers despite a default on the part of the defendants, stating that they were “his people.” The Philadelphia leader of the New Black Panthers, King Minister Samir Shabazz, also was not prosecuted and prohibited only from “displaying a weapon” within 100 feet of a polling location for the next three years.

Is that because Holder’s boss’s real identity is “Bari M. Shabazz?” If so, what does that make Eric Holder?

If Obama is not a U.S. citizen, why is he occupying the presidency of the United States? Why was his passport file “breached” in 2008? Was it to create a forgery so that his true identity would be hidden? Why else would a forged birth certificate and Selective Service registration exist? Why else would he be using a Social Security number from a state in which he neither lived nor worked? What happened to Quarles Harris, a witness in the passport breach investigation?

Holder and Janet Napolitano, Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, have filed lawsuits against states attempting to enforce federal immigration laws or formulate their own in the absence of federal cooperation. Holder’s Department of Justice has also filed suit against Sheriff Joe Arpaio for alleged “civil rights” violations.

Obama has instructed the Immigrations and Customs Enforcement Division of Homeland Security to practice “prosecutorial discretion” in the “apprehension, detention and removal of aliens” from the United States. Under the color of protecting the “Voting Rights Act,” Holder has sued Texas and South Carolina for passing legislation requiring photo ID of all voters.

Both Obama and Holder have been named one of ten most corrupt politicians by Judicial Watch, a national corruption watchdog group.

Rather than answer a U.S. Army officer’s questions about Obama’s constitutional eligibility to serve, Obama’s military court-martialed and sentenced him, without allowing any discovery, to six months in Ft. Leavenworth prison.

And what about Michelle and the girls’ expensive trips totaling more than $10,000,000 while the nation suffers from the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression?

In September 2009, Obama chaired and “set the agenda” for the United Nations Security Council, which had never been done by a sitting U.S. President. By initiating military action in Libya without consulting with Congress, Obama may have violated the War Powers Act and the U.S. Constitution. His excuse was that the law “doesn’t apply to Libya.”

What about Congress, who, according to one presidential candidate, is fully aware of Obama’s fraud but will not act?
If I Were President

(Apr. 15, 2012) — “Ladies and gentlemen of the free and sovereign states of the United States of America. I stand here before you tonight, humbled by the office of the presidency and humbled by the awesome responsibility you have placed upon me by your vote and by the limits placed upon me by the Constitution of the United States, to which I have sworn my solemn oath to preserve, protect and defend. I do not take this oath lightly because of the many brave men and women who have sacrificed their lives, their limbs, and their minds so that we as a nation of free people can remain free and prosperous, into and beyond the foreseeable future. I am honor bound to defend America’s sovereignty, her security and her freedom and I will honor that duty above all else. My actions will never be to betray that duty, in spite of the pressures put upon me by special interests or those seeking national or global power. If you cannot trust me to fulfill that duty then I do not deserve to be your president.”

“I did not seek the office of the Presidency for power’s sake. I sought only to perform the duties of the President of the United States and as Commander in Chief of the armed forces to the best of my ability. Because you see, I believe with all my heart and soul that America is the last great hope of this planet and I will not preside over its demise in any shape or form. I will only preside over the perpetuation of the vision of those who crafted her.”

“We are not a perfect nation nor are we a perfect people. We are flawed as all men are flawed. We make mistakes and sometimes we make big mistakes. But we are a self-correcting nation. It may take awhile but we eventually try to correct our mistakes. Sometimes we even fail when we try to correct those mistakes, but we keep trying. Perhaps by electing me as your president, you have made the conscious decision to correct some of our past mistakes.”

“Yes, for at least 100 years, we have strayed from the path of freedom and have accepted a false ideology that is the antithesis of freedom. Whether for altruistic reasons or for evil ones, we thought we could make a better society by helping those we believed to be in need. Unfortunately, the opposite is true and we have created a culture of Americans who have become wholly dependent on government and in the process we have weakened them and we have weakened America and brought her to the brink of bankruptcy. We have now come to grips with one of our biggest mistakes. We can no longer afford this false ideology and if we continue on this path to its ultimate end, we will have committed national suicide.”

“The greatest gift for each one of us is the gift of life. The expression of our life comes from the manifestation of our desires. The honest pursuit of those desires and the freedom to pursue them is what sets us apart from all other peoples on this earth. It is that pursuit of those desires and ambitions that has made us the wealthiest and yet the most generous nation among all other nations.

Our farms and ranches feed all Americans and at least one third of the rest of the people in other countries. Our technology has not only lifted our nation out of poverty and raised our standard of living by many factors, we have shared that technology with our friends and our enemies. At great sacrifice, our powerful military has freed over a billion people from the clutches of brutal dictators. That military has also been used to help other countries in times of natural disasters.”

“Ladies and gentlemen, we should be proud of our accomplishments, not shrink from them or be embarrassed by them. In spite of our faults and in spite of the fact that we are a divided nation, there is no nation on earth that has ever been and maybe never will be, quite like America. We are a force for good even though we are plagued by forces of evil amongst us. We don’t horde our wealth we willingly share it with our own people and the rest of the world. The American people are the most generous people on earth.”

“Today marks a change in the direction for America. My goal will be to restore America to her previous greatness and goodness. America does not need a fundamental transformation as the previous president was so anxious to accomplish and almost did. America needs to look for and find her roots of individual freedom and unalienable rights as a gift from our creator and reclaim them.”

“But understand this. You cannot expect your leaders to be free of corruption if the American people themselves are corrupt. If the American people are without honor, it is quite likely that those they elect to office will also be without honor. Do not expect your representatives to be more perfect than those who put them in office.”

Although I came to office on a party label, I do not necessarily always agree with party politics. I am guided by my honor and my duty to the Constitution of the United States. If it is within the limits of my power, I will set about immediately to conduct the following actions, even though those actions may cause me to be a one-term president. My love of and my deep devotion to this great country, impels me to do no less.

1. I will use whatever power I have as president to repeal Obamacare and then use my influence as president to get the Congress to come up with reasonable, economic solutions to the health care dilemma while still protecting the sanctity of the doctor-patient relationship and privacy.

2. I will issue only those executive orders or directives to my cabinet that would have the effect of shrinking the size of government. I would never issue an executive order or directives to my cabinet with the sole intent of circumventing the U. S. Congress, as that is unconstitutional.

3. I will set about to reduce the size of my cabinet by dissolving the Department of Education, the Department of Energy and the Environmental Protection Agency. Education will be returned to the states and local jurisdictions where it belongs. The duties of the Department of Energy and the Environmental Protection Agency will be handed over to the Department of Interior and scaled way back from their current budget, work force and scope of jurisdiction. Other cabinet bureaucracies could also be on the chopping block.

4. I will never declare war on any other country without a declaration of war from the U. S. Congress.

a. I will use whatever power I have to provide the greatest possible services and benefits to our armed forces for their sacrifice.

b. I will use whatever influence I have as president to maintain the strongest military such that no other country will be tempted to take us on.

5. I will never sign an international treaty that in my judgment is in violation of the U. S. Constitution, even if ratified by the Congress.

6. I will veto any legislation submitted to me for my signature, if in my judgment, the legislation is contrary to the U. S. Constitution.

7. I will cancel all lawsuits by the Justice Department against any state that has passed a law in their state to control illegal immigration, or requiring photo ID for all voters. In addition, I will use the full power of the presidency to, once and for all, seal our borders from invasion by illegal aliens, drugs and illegal contraband or weapons that can be used against citizens of the United States. I will direct the Justice Department, Homeland Security, the Immigration and Naturalization Service and the FBI to fully enforce all laws regarding immigration that could very possibly lead to massive self-deportation.

8. I will open up all areas of known oil, gas and coal reserves and work towards actual energy independence and I will stop all subsidies for solar, wind, ethanol, or biomass alternative energy. If these technologies cannot survive in the free market place on their own, they do not deserve subsidies from the American taxpayer.

9. I will use my influence as President of the United States to encourage the U. S. Congress to reduce government spending on entitlements, ferret out waste, fraud, abuse and corruption and put a hold on all earmarks for at least the next 4 years. My budget will reflect these worthy and necessary goals.

10. I will fill all vacancies on the U. S. Supreme Court by candidates that reflect a sincere dedication and commitment to adjudicate all laws and legislation pursuant to the full intent of the founders of the U. S. Constitution.

11. Some regulation in a free society is necessary. However, over regulation is the scourge of all business in America. Over regulation has inhibited the creation of new ideas, jobs, wealth and the American dream. It has set America back by decades from the powerhouse she once was. I will do everything in my power to work with the U. S. Congress to return America to a YES WE CAN nation, instead of NO WE CAN’T, do nothing country, by reducing regulations where we can.

12. Under no circumstances will I allow Sharia law to be inserted into the law books of the United States and I will direct the Justice Department to sue any judge, at whatever level of the courts, from so doing.

All these things and more I will do, as your president. But rest assured, I will not preside over the fall of America because we have fallen into the trap of so many previous republics or empires, like the Roman Empire. In the words of Will Durant from his “Lessons of History” where he writes how taxation turned the people of Rome into slaves and resulted in pandemic serfdom, he states:

“Rome had its socialist interlude under Diocletian. Faced with increasing poverty and restlessness among the masses, and with the imminent danger of barbarian invasion, he issued in A.D. 301 an edictum de pretiis, which denounced monopolists for keeping goods from the market to raise prices, and set maximum prices and wages for all important articles and services. Extensive public works were undertaken to put the unemployed to work, and food was distributed gratis, or at reduced prices, to the poor. The government – which already owned most mines, quarries, and salt deposits – brought nearly all major industries and guilds under detailed control. ‘In every large town,’ we are told, ‘the state became a powerful employer, standing head and shoulders above the private industrialists, who were in any case crushed by taxation.’ When businessmen predicted ruin, Diocletian explained that the barbarians were at the gate, and that individual liberty had to be shelved until collective liberty could be made secure. The socialism of Diocletian was a war economy, made possible by fear of foreign attack. Other factors equal, internal liberty varies inversely with external danger.”

“The task of controlling men in economic detail proved too much for Diocletian’s expanding, expensive, and corrupt bureaucracy. To support this officialdom – the army, the courts, public works, and the dole – taxation rose to such heights that people lost the incentive to work or earn, and an erosive contest began between lawyers finding devices to evade taxes and lawyers formulating laws to prevent evasion. Thousands of Romans, to escape the tax gatherer, fled over the frontiers to seek refuge among the barbarians. Seeking to check this elusive mobility and to facilitate regulation and taxation, the government issued decrees binding the peasant to his field and the worker to his shop until all their debts and taxes had been paid. In this and other ways medieval serfdom began.”

“The similarities between what happened to Rome under the socialist policies of Diocletian and the policies of previous administrations in America, are stark in deed. On my watch, I will use whatever powers that are granted to me as president to reverse the current trends that will, if continued, send us reeling into the snake pit of past cultures and the death of a great country that has never been duplicated since the dawn of civilization.”

“To my divided nation, I ask that you put aside your differences in the hopes that you will join with me in saving America from repeating history again because of the policies created by government that have hastened our division, exploited our differences and broken our bank. As your president, I will lead this country in the direction it needs to go if it is to survive. My decision is not based on ideology. It is based solely on survival of freedom and the survival of a great nation that does not deserve to die.”

“Good night and God bless America and each and every American.”

NOTE: Of course, this is a fictitious speech made by a concerned American about the fate of his country, if America continues on this path she now treads. It is abundantly obvious that our speech will not please many Americans. But these Americans who are not pleased, are the very ones who need to get the message. The writing is on the wall. In time, we will run out of money, there will be no one to bail us out and those who prefer the current path will find that they are like the people of Greece who are now faced with massive austerity programs to SAVE their country. But in all likelihood, Greece cannot be saved and will eventually collapse, or it will become the obedient servants of the moneychangers who will call all the shots and render their government mere puppets. Their free ride is over, and so too will be the free ride of every American who believes that government has its own money tree and will always have an ample supply. The bubble of the progressive movement will have finally burst and the consequences will be cataclysmic, unless we act now. We are not facing a bump in the road, ladies and gentlemen, from which we will recover. We are facing the extinction of freedom. If you cannot see this, you are hopelessly blind.

Editor's Note: Re-posted with permission of The Post & Email.

(Apr. 10, 2012) — Ever since the question of Obama’s eligibility to serve as president has come up, his supporters have argued that the term “natural born citizen” means nothing more than having been born on U.S. soil. “Obama was born in Hawaii,” they declare, “so he is eligible to serve as president.” Needless to say, millions of Americans suspect that Obama was not born in Hawaii but, even if he was, he cannot legally serve as president. Why? Because the U.S. Constitution says so.

Article II, Section 1, Clause 5 reads as follows:

“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.”

Highlighted in red is the “grandfather clause.” That text supports the argument that “natural born citizen” means something more than simply having been born on the nation’s soil. If “born on native soil” is sufficient to make one eligible to serve as president (assuming attainment of age 35 and 14 years of residency), then the grandfather clause serves no purpose. That is, the text would simply read:

“No Person except a natural born Citizen, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.”

A few minutes of thought makes it obvious that the grandfather clause was necessary because there were no natural born citizens at the time the Constitution was drafted in 1789. George Washington, for example, was merely a “born citizen” or “native born citizen.” He was certainly born on native soil—in Virginia in 1732—but his parents were, of course, not U.S. citizens. They were citizens of Great Britain.

Note that earlier drafts of the Constitution read:

“No Person except a born Citizen, 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.”

The grandfather clause was not included because it was not necessary. The term used was “born citizen,” or born on native soil. Because the citizenship of one’s parents is irrelevant to the term “born citizen,” the grandfather clause was not needed in those earlier drafts.

John Jay then wrote to George Washington and requested that the presidential eligibility requirement be made more strict by prohibiting persons born with “divided loyalties” from serving as president. Although members of Congress needed only to be generic citizens, Jay felt that presidents should be held to a higher standard. His concern was that the president was also commander-in-chief of the new nation’s armed forces and he engaged in foreign policy. A person with divided loyalties who managed to get elected to the Senate or the House of Representatives would be far less dangerous in that position than if he were president, because his vote would be only one among many in Congress. But as commander-in-chief of the armed forces and director of foreign policy, the president needed to be without divided loyalties. Jay argued that an individual born on U.S. soil to citizen parents would be further removed from loyalties to another nation. Washington and others agreed, and James Madison modified the Constitution, changing “born Citizen” to “natural born Citizen.”

But that change, of course, caused a problem: There were no natural born citizens age 35 or older in 1789. Anyone that age would have been born to parents who were not, at the time of their child’s birth, U.S. citizens. Their parents would have been citizens of Great Britain (or France, or Germany, etc.). No one, including George Washington, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, and James Madison, could therefore have served as President of the United States. Unless the nation was to go without a president for decades—while it waited for children to be born to U.S. citizen parents and reach age 35—the text had to be modified. Hence, the “grandfather clause” was added to the presidential eligibility requirement: “or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution.” The final text read:

“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.”

Washington, Adams, Jefferson, Madison and the other early presidents were, of course, “generic” citizens of the United States as of the nation’s founding, and could have served as Senators or members of the House of Representatives, or as Supreme Court Justices. But they were not natural born citizens because they were not born to U.S. citizen parents. Hence the need for the grandfather clause.

This is not a “conspiracy theory;” this is history. Regrettably, tens of millions of Americans are ignorant of the nation’s history, and much of what was taught in the 1800s is certainly no longer being taught today. When Chester A. Arthur served as president (1881-1885) he knew that Americans understood the meaning of the term natural born citizen, and as a result he went to great lengths to hide from the public the fact that his Irish father William was not a citizen of the United States when he, Chester, was born. Arthur even burned records to cover his past. (Arthur would have had no need to hide his father’s citizenship had the term natural born citizen related only to the location of his birth.)

The issue is rather simple. It is as though the Constitution stated, “No person can serve as president unless he owns a purple car.” Obama’s supporters assert, “Obama owns a car, and is therefore eligible.” The media recites, “Obama owns a car, and is therefore eligible.” Democrats declare, “Obama owns a car, and to claim that he does not is racist.” Republicans respond, “We believe Obama when he says he owns a car, and we believe that Marco Rubio and Bobby Jindal also own cars.” The Supreme Court shrugs and says, “We’re not interested in whether Obama owns a car, or its color.” The “birthers” argue, “Obama drives a foreign car.” Meanwhile, some of us shout at the top of our lungs, “But Obama’s car is not purple!”

Obama supporters point to the 14th Amendment and to various court cases to “prove” Obama is eligible to serve as president, but those references relate to generic citizens, not natural born citizens. (That is, they refer to laws that mention cars, rather than purple cars. A law that says, “All cars must have working brakes,” has no bearing on a law that says, “No person can serve as president unless he owns a purple car.”)

By 2008, of course, few Americans understood the meaning of the term natural born citizen. Most incorrectly believed then, and still believe, it means nothing more than born on U.S. soil. Many in politics and some in the media understood what the term meant, but said nothing: the Democrats and the media, in order to get Obama elected; and the Republicans, in order to avoid being called racists—and because they had their own eligibility problems with John McCain, who was born in Colon, Panama.

Not surprisingly, Obama has vigorously fought eligibility challenges in court, knowing that if the Supreme Court were to rule on the issue of the meaning of natural born citizen it would have to declare him an illegal usurper of the office. (Note that Obama’s court battles have not been to prove he was born in Hawaii; they have been to prevent the courts from ruling on the meaning of the term natural born citizen.) Lower courts have assisted Obama by doing their best to deny legal challenges, mostly based on technicalities like standing and jurisdiction. The Supreme Court has refused to hear an eligibility case (Kerchner v. Obama), because the Justices know they would have to rule against Obama and they fear such a ruling would set off nationwide race riots. But there is no hiding the fact that history supports the interpretation of the term natural born citizen as “born on U.S. soil to two U.S. citizen parents.” Facts may oftentimes be problematic, but they are facts nevertheless.

If the grandfather clause is necessary, it proves that Obama is ineligible to serve as president. (It also means that Florida Senator Marco Rubio and Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal cannot serve as president or vice-president.) If the grandfather clause is not necessary, then James Madison included 16 words in the U.S. Constitution for no reason whatsoever. Either James Madison was an idiot, or Chester A. Arthur and Obama are illegal usurpers of the presidency. If you believe the latter, then you must demand that something be done about it. Contact your state legislators and insist that Obama’s name not be allowed on your state’s ballots. If you are unsuccessful in that effort, then do your best to ensure that he is defeated on November 6—before he does any more damage to the nation.
