Skip to comments.McClintock: Obama passed eligibility requirements (throws constitution under bus)
Posted on 07/16/2011 5:14:24 PM PDT by editor-surveyor
A California congressman says voters, Congress and the courts all have cleared Barack Obama's eligibility to be president.
The comments come from U.S. Rep. Tom McClintock, whose e-mail to a constituent with a question about the eligibility issue was forwarded to WND.
He said, "The Constitution is the starting point for determining eligibility to serve as president. The Constitution requires that to be eligible to serve as president an individual must be a natural born citizen of the United States, be at least 35 years old, and have been a permanent resident in the United States for at least 14 years."
McClintock continued, "Currently, a candidate's eligibility under these requirements is vetted by a number of sources, both inside the government and out. First, candidates go through an intensive political vetting process in both the primary and general election – their histories are carefully examined by their political opponents who have a vested interest in uncovering the facts. At the end of the campaigns, the voting public weighs in. Then, when all the votes have been cast and counted, it is up to Congress to certify the results. A final check-and-balance against eligibility irregularities lies with the courts, and ultimately the Supreme Court."

Possible but it is not likely that Soros’s vetting system would be that IDIOTIC.
Please think about it. You are billionaire power broker attempting to install a Manchurian Candidate in as the US president in the hopes that you can also retake the Senate and the House and completely change the face of US Government.
If you are successful, you will leapfrog the US Communist movement decades and decades over incrementalism.
The stakes for you have never been higher in your life and you are looking at holding the ultimate power in your hands for 4 solid years.
You have hundreds of excellent communist politicians at various levels in the United States who you can back and groom as prospects to ascend to the US presidency. You find a black man running for the senate who is LEGALLY NOT QUALIFIED to be President of teh USA, and yet you back him all through his years as Senator and then through a nasty primary against the Clinton Mafia. And all the while, if any Elections Registrar or Court even hints at his ineligibility and decides to investigate and rule on it, you are toast. Your entire investment of time and money is completely wasted.
Now, does that sound in ANY WAY realistic to you? Does that sound like something a dedicated, manipulative billionaire communist would do to the one opportunity he has to leapfrog his communist agenda and get it entrenched in the USA.
Really? He is that stupid?
I just don’t believe it. I’m sorry. I just don’t.
There is no doubt Obama had to have help all down the line getting through college, the Senate and into the presidency. There is no doubt other communist benefactors were carrying him on the way. But I just can’t believe Soros is so stupid or even bold and foolhardy, to pick someone who would be stopped cold at any time in the process that it was learned he was legally ineligible to be president.
Is it possible? Of course it is possible. It could be that item wasn’t vetted, despite his having an adopted Muslim dad, being schooled in Indonesia, etc. But I just doubt it. I’m sorry.
If Obama was truly ineligible to be legal US president, how hard would it have been for Soros to push his second best candidate? Easy, I tell you. Easy. There would just be no reason to take the risk. None.
No, it was closer to something like $5 Billion dollars that was withdrawn that day. It was later estimated that $5 Trillion could have been withdrawn by the end of the day, if the gov't hadn't closed the window.
Yeah, there was a whole lot of awful funny business that went on during (and immediately subsequent to) the 2008 campaign. In my observation, the United States underwent something of a real coup d'etat in that moment in time, and most of our top elected officials rolled over for it.
If you begin tallying up all of the strange events surrounding Obama's election win, and the events of his first year in office, it'll make your hair stand on end. Someone (Soros?) meant to overthrow the Constitution and the US government. They have almost succeeded, too.
I believe that the actual level of real treason that has been committed at the very highest levels of government over the last two years, cannot be understated, and would probably stagger the mind.
It was 550 billion in 2.5 hours. They shut the market down. Kanjorski said it could have amounted to 5 trillion if not stopped!
Thanks. That's how I remembered it.
Believe me, I understand...
You are a real Renaissance Woman!
I homeschooled my children a good part of the time (circumstances made it so I couldn’t all the time) and tutored other homeschooled kids. This was in the 80s. I realized as soon as I used regular childrens’ schoolbooks that they were horrid indoctrination. So I quite using them and just went to the library and got nonfiction books (this was early to mid 80s) and made up our own projects and lessons, I used to write up things myself to teach reading and reading comprehension. A few years ago I was tutoring an 11 year old girl who was way, way behind and her books were SO HORRIBLE. I could not believe the vile and blatant evil propaganda. And she was home schooled, with books provided by the school department.
You were a lot wiser than I in the 1980’s, although I knew something rotten was afoot, I could not put my finger on it until the 90’s—until Dr. Laura and Michael Savage were saying things which peaked my interest to start learning what was really happening in schools and politics. Needless to say, I was SHOCKED!!! by the sheer EVIL.
Some of the books for elementary school are worse than horrible, they are vile. I read one once which parents had the school revoke (San Jose) from their reading list. Vile ideas.....vile, vulgar language, and advocating dysfunctional, evil actions. Yep—typical Democrat thinking.... that is what they are putting into the heads of children to make them into vile people, if they can. It is the parents that make all the difference—if they guide their children, both intellectually and morally.
You are ignoring the obvious. This is not about Soros being stupid by backing the Great Black Hope, who was never fully eligible. They DID IT. They didn’t NEED eligibility. Who’s stupid? Us, for thinking the Constitution matters.
I think Obama was already packaged, groomed, schooled, and ready when Soros climbed aboard.
All the Obama mentors and handlers did not worry much about eligibility. They filled in some of the cracks with superficial caulk, like the military form the man at 18 had to fill out. That’s about it.
They were probably more concerned with his frequent drug use and homosexual whoring than with his eligibility.
You are completely missing my point. Why Obama? Was he REALLY the ONLY person in the entire USA that Soros NEEDED to do his bidding? Pretend that Obama had died in a car accident while serving in the Senate. What would Soros have done?
You know he would not have quit. He would have taken his next choice that was already groomed and ready to go to do his bidding. Well, that is my point. If he had a #2 all ready to go but simply preferred Obama, and then found out Obama was technically ineligible for the presidency, I just don’t think Soros is stupid and foolish enough to try to ram through his ineligible preference when a perfectly good, perfectly natural born citizen #2 choice was waiting in the wings.
There is absolutely nothing special about Obama that he would HAVE to be the figure head for Soros. You can see communists all up and down Obama’s team. You mean Soros couldn’t have pushed someone like Rahm Emanuel for president if Obama proved ineligible? Why not? He had a treasure trove of commie politicians to chose from.
My entire point is that I find it hard to believe that Soros would risk losing a huge investment of time and money in a figurehead candidate for 2008 by choosing a candidate who was not legally eligible to serve as president. That would be plain stupid, and Soros is not stupid.
It is possible Obama was not eligible, but I find it outrageously unlikely that he was simply because I find it hard to believe Soros would take such an unnecessary risk.
The problem is that we’ve been awakened here on the forum, and we see people sleepwalking in the Beltway. It’s bizarre. Most tyrants aren’t like Clinton; they keep “safe” enough in their personal lives that they only need to blackmail a few people at a time. [Please note post on the Frankfurt School’s brainwashing project above.]
American tyrants at least.
No, no, I get your point. It is plausible that Soros had others to groom or support. But I am thinking that the stars aligned with Obama because of how he came off. He was, as the song and the L.A. Times wrote, the Magic Negro. He looked black enough to be BLACK, but he was raised 100% by whites so he was “articulate” and he had already been groomed since his Columbia extension school days. He had everything that all of his “mentors” (owners, what have you) recognized he would need to get them into the White House without one single explosive.
Psychologically, he was PERFECT. They must have been like hungry foxes watching a plump chicken wandering into their den. The guy was CRAVING attention like nobody they’d ever seen, willing to be their inside man, just dying to be worshipped, and actually BELIEVED in their commie causes and in the destruction of the US of A. For the public adoration, he’d do it all. And he’d been practicing his Orator Voice for a long time. All he needed were the right words on the prompter.
Plus he had the very black wife and two darling back kids. They helped to make him part of black America, when alone he barely qualified. He had no connection personally to black American struggles or culture.
Are there a ton of men who match all of the above? Maybe, but I am not all that sure. Obama was PERFECT for their plans.
And the proof is in the pudding. There was no better candidate. THEY WON!!!!!! 3 years later, no one really cares about his eligibility, his obvious intellectual lackings, his lily white upbringing, etc. Pointless to worry if Soros or any of them took a huge risk with a “loser” as we see Obama. THEY SAW HIM CORRECTLY: as having everything they needed to get into the White House for at least 4 years. AND THEY WERE CORRECT.
OK, we just see it differently and both laid out our reasoned arguments. It comes down to what you personally believe. You believe he was elected in spite of his ineligibility and I believe he was eligible. People disagree all the time. At least you have a logical reason for your beliefs.
Oh? I never got that you were arguing he is eligible! I do feel dumb. I am not sure he isn’t eligible. I think all that is knowable is that there is evidence he had some problems with his status. The SS number, the stalled and phony BC’s, and other strange things.
I really don’t think the argument about “ Soros wouldn’t” helps the argument that he is eligible, though. But he certainly could be. The problem with the eligibility question is that we just don’t know.
