Open Letter To United States Attorney Jeffrey Taylor
Posted in Uncategorized on March 13, 2009 by naturalborncitizen

March 13, 2009

United States Attorney Jeffrey Taylor
United States Attorney’s Office
555 4th Street, NW
Washington, DC 20530

Dear Mr. Taylor,

I am writing to make you aware of a brewing danger to members of our active military who have been influenced to join law suits challenging the eligibility of President Barack Obama as Commnader In Chief.

I hope you will deem it proper to take appropriate action to protect our military and the nation from further damage.

Recently, 1st Lt. Scott R. Easterling, currently serving in Iraq, agreed to be a plaintiff in a pending law suit being brought on behalf of several active and retired military persons by California attorney, Orly Taitz. Easterling agreed to sign a consent form for participation in this action. Beside asking for a publicity photograph and donations, the consent form requests a signature below the following language:

Attn. Orly Taitz, Esq.
26302 La Paz, Ste. 211
Mission Viejo, CA 92691

I agree to be a plaintiff in the legal action to be filed by Orly Taitz, Esq. in a PETITION FOR A DECLARATORY JUDGEMENT whether Barry Soetoro, citizen of Indonesia and possibly still citizen of Kenya, aka BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA IS QUALIFIED TO BE PRESIDENT of the U.S or TO BE COMMANDER IN CHIEF of the U.S. ARMED FORCES, in that I am or was a sworn member of the U.S. military (subject to recall) and I could conceivably be given unlawful orders by a Constitutionally unqualified Commander In Chief, and by following such orders I can be subject to court martial.

I further understand that additional arguments may be inserted into this lawsuit at the above-mentioned attorneys deem necessary. Please attach a copy of your military ID card.

Signature: ______________________

As Attorney Orly Taitz is performing this service for her country Pro Bono, any amount that you can contribute will be most helpful. Please, attach your picture in the uniform, a short bio and a letter to fellow citizens and elected officials

[See attached consent form copied directly from the official Orly Taitz web site at http://defendourfreedoms.org/ATTENTIONALLMILITARYPERSONNEL.htm ]

On February 23, 2009, this story broke via World Net Daily with the following headline:

Soldier doubts eligibility, defies president’s orders ‘As an officer, my sworn oath to support and defend our Constitution requires this’

The story included the following text:

"...it is not a static but rather a living document and must be read in the context of an ever-changing world.”

Like I tell people, "President Who?"

Not only did he apply that line to the Constitution, he also referenced the Ten Commandments and the Sermon on the Mount in the same way.

They want to shut up those who are raising the issue.

And the issue is political, not an issue at law.

The bald idiocy of dem manipulation and disregard for personal freedoms is fascist inn nature, and in execution.

From Leo D’s posting:

“The legal question I asked the court to decide was whether a person governed by the laws of Great Britain at the time of their birth could be considered a natural “born” citizen of the United States as required by Article 2 Section 1 Clause 5 of our Constitution. The question remains unanswered in any United States court.”

Was obama’s grandfather really a victim of the British? The Mau Mau uprising dates from 1952. Barack Obama's grandfather was arrested in 1949. What are the connections between Malcolm X, Obama and Odinga?

TIMES ARTICLE DEC 2008

“Beatings and abuse made Barack Obama’s grandfather loathe the British The President-elect’s relatives have told how the family was a victim of the Mau Mau revolt”

To the best of my knowledge, the victims of the Mau Mau revolt were the white farmers and the natives who worked on the farms, a la Zimbabwe.

From Timesonline 1952 articles:

The growth of Mau Mau The aims of the Mau Mau are clear enough. While the Kenya African Union conducts a campaign above ground for political power, the purpose of the Mau Mau is to step up the pace by menacing the authority of the Government and fostering trouble at all levels and by all means...

THE ROOT OF THE MAU MAU REVOLT

The Times, Mau Mau 1952 Politics and Terrorism in Kenya.

One contradiction after another:

Times December 2008 Article:

“...Hussein Onyango Obama, Mr Obama’s paternal grandfather, became involved in the Kenyan independence movement while working as a cook for a British army officer after the war. He was arrested in 1949 and jailed for two years in a high-security prison where, according to his family, he was subjected to horrific violence to extract information about the growing insurgency...

SNIP

“...Mr Obama refers briefly to his grandfather’s imprisonment in his best-selling memoir, Dreams from My Father, but states that his grandfather was “found innocent” and held only for “more than six months”...

SNIP

“...Barack Obama Sr, Mr Onyango’s son and the President-elect’s father, seems to have inherited his father’s attitudes towards the colonial power. He was also arrested, for attending a meeting in Nairobi of the Kenya African National Union (Kanu), the organisation spearheading the independence movement. Mrs Onyango told Mr Obama that his father, unlike her husband, had been held only for a short time in the white man’s prison: “Because he was not a leader in Kanu, Barack was released after a few days.”

“...Mr Onyango was a victim of the fight for Kenyan independence, but his son became a direct beneficiary of that movement. In 1960, Barack Obama Sr travelled on a scholarship to the University of Hawaii, as part of a programme (sponsored by John F. Kennedy) to train young Kenyans to rule their own country...”

No he wasn’t, he arrived some time in 1959 long before Kennedy had anything to do with the airlift - AND HE WAS NOT on board the first contingent of students that landed at Idlewild in September 1959.

JOURNAL OF AMERCIAN HISTORY

SEE FOOTNOTE:[25] Harry Belafonte, Sidney Poitier, and Jackie Robinson appeal letter, Aug. 24, 1959, box 3, Robinson Papers; Smith, “East African Airlifts of 1959, 1960, and 1961,” 25–43. Barack Obama wrote that his father “had been selected by Kenyan leaders and American sponsors to attend a university in the United States,” but a list of the students who landed in New York on September 9, 1959, does not contain the name of the elder Obama. Tom Shachtman, working in the African-American Students Foundation (aasf) papers for a book on the airlifts, has found that the elder Obama came in 1959 with support from the aasf but appears to have been routed a different way as he made his way to the University of Hawaii.

Curiously, look who was in Africa in 1959...

MALCOLM X TIMELINE

Malcolm X travels to United Arab Republic, Sudan and Nigeria

Announced at New York NOI meeting that Malcolm X has left for Holland. Travels from there to Egypt, Mecca, Iran, Syria, and Ghana as Elijah Muhammad's ambassador.

MALCOLM X BARACK OBAMA (sr)and OGINGA ODINGA

Odinga had an impact on human rights groups in the United States. While he was in the U.S., the State Department took him on a tour of America. The last stop was Atlanta, self-described as “The City Too Busy to Hate.” Odinga was housed at one of Atlanta’s two non-segregated hotels.

When Malcolm visited Africa in 1964, he visited Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania. It was during that trip that he met with Kenyan President Jomo Kenyatta, Ugandan President Dr. Milton Obote, and President Julius K. Nyerere and Muhammad Babu of Tanzania. Babu, Malcolm and Leroi Jones (now Amiri Baraka) held a meeting during this period in New York City. Malcolm talked about meeting President Kenyatta. Malcolm, however, was also aware of Kenya’s Oginga Odinga.

The original caption for this photo, taken June 1, 1963, reads: “Nairobi, Kenya – Waving his ‘wisk’ the newly-elected Premier of Kenya, Jomo Kenyatta (R, foreground), greeted throngs of cheering citizens as he rode through the streets of Nairobi. Accompanying Kenyatta are Tom Mboya (L), Minister of Justice and Constitutional Affairs; A. Oginga Odinga, Minister for Home Affairs; and James S. Gichuru, Minister for Finance. The motorcade was part of the National Holiday celebrations which marked the start of internal self-government for the African nation.” Photo: © Bettmann/CORBIS

MALCOLM X IN AFRICA.

On a visit to Kenya in August of 2006, Barack Obama was hosted by Raila Odinga, son of Oginga Odinga, and is said to have spoken in praise of him at rallies in Nairobi, for which Obama is roundly condemned in the right-wing blogosphere.

AN IN-DEPTH VIEW OF THE OBAMA HERITAGE Will Burnett

As the 2008 Presidential campaign progressed, bits and pieces of the information about Barack Obama that were being presented by the media did not fit the actual pattern of life of the potential first family. Thus, our curiosity caused us to do in-depth research and analysis on some of the facets of Obama’s life. Our information was gathered from historical books and documents, other later-published sources, and from recent history in daily newspapers, both domestic and international. We feel this information should be known to every voter before the November election.

In 1959/60, the first two airlifts of youth from Kenya were made to the United States. The purpose of the airlifts was to educate African youth so that they could then return to Kenya as leaders. Obama’s father was one of the students, and shortly after his arrival in Hawaii he met Obama’s mother. Obama was born in 1961. By birth Obama was automatically a member of the African Luo tribe. Shortly after the first airlifts, the African American Student Foundation was formed which has since sponsored educations for Luos including those claiming ‘political asylum’.

This was a turbulent period in Kenyan history, with the Luos in open rebellion against European colonial authority, engaging in terrorism and having Communist associations and close ties to Russia and China.

Once in the United States, the Luo youth organized with the intention of affecting Kenyan politics from here. They also involved themselves in United States politics, which began to focus on African-American uprisings. Obama’s father left his mother and him after two years to go to Harvard. It went beyond a desire to get an education, the Luos were working towards large political goals on the mainland.

During the absence of Obama’s father, Kenya had declared its independence; and a Luo, Jaramongi Oginga Odinga, reportedly Obama’s uncle, had been elected Vice President of the new government. Obama’s father went to work for the government when he returned to Kenya. However, Oginga Odinga’s radical Muslim and communist ideas soon made inevitable a collision with Kenya’s President Kenyatta. In 1965, Kenyatta assumed an anticommunist stance; and in 1966, Odinga’s left wing was driven out of the party. Obama’s father was involved, and Obama has simply said that a conflict with Kenyatta destroyed his father’s career, failing to give the reason why...

Interesting: The African-American Students Foundation WAS FORMED AFTER OBAMA SNR’s arrival in Hawaii.

The article claims Obama Sr left Hawaii when obama was 2 years of age. In fact, he left Hawaii before the first birthday. ( That’s if the August 4 date is correct.)

So, who sponsored Obama Sr, who paid for his trip to Hawaii? It wasn’t the Afircan-American Students Foundation, and it wasn’t Tom Mboya:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elizabeth_Mooney_Kirk

Elizabeth Mooney Kirk (February 23 1914 - June 29 2004) spent her entire life advancing adult literacy. She worked with Frank Laubach using his “Each One Teach One” reading method. She traveled and taught worldwide including India, Africa and United States. While working in Kenya, she provided the financial support for Barack Obama, Sr. to come to the United States to study.

Kirk co-authored many books with Dr. Frank Laubach and son Dr. Robert Laubach, which are still in use to teach adults to read English. In this role, her work included running a mission boarding school in India and for two years she was head of a project for the British Government in Kenya training teachers and adults to read in some of the tribal languages.

In Kirk’s work in Kenya, she often helped find sponsorships for promising students study in the United States. An article by Michael Dobbs in The Washington Post, states that Kirk, provided most of the financial support in Obama Sr’s early years in the United States, according to the Tom Mboya archives at Stanford University. Kirk is also mentioned in Barack Obama’s 1995 book, Dreams from My Father (pg 427 hardcover) as writing college recommendation letters for Obama Sr.

Barack Obama, Sr.’s Hawaiian education was sponsored partly by the Laubach Literacy Institute (LLI), which has links to the Nation of Islam, and which considers a socialist world without national borders one of its goals. A financial supporter of the LLI was Elizabeth Mooney Kirk, who co-authored books with its founder, Charles Laubach. Kirk was also a friend of civil rights activist Malcolm “X” (Malcolm Little). It is likely that Malcolm X met Obama, Sr. while visiting the Secretary General of the Kenya Federation of Labour, prominent Kenyan politician Tom Mboya, in 1959, because Mboya and Obama were close friends.

I have been in mixed Luo Swahili country, but that was many years ago , in 1970. They were intermingled with the coastal Swahili tribe North of Mombasa along the coast in the Kikambala area. A minority,they dressed differently and wore little skull caps, and many of them chewed kat (Chat), especially the laborers. Contrary to the other local Swahili Muslims, they were not very friendly and quite stand-offish Muslims.

I didn't really like being around the Luo that much, and they tended not to stop to pick up hitch hikers ( which I was at the time, adventurous and full of vinegar) while the Swahili almost always stopped ,so that I had little difficulty getting around.

So I know how seperaatist the Luo are, first hand, and understand the Orange Party foundations.THey are only 12% of the population, and want Kenya under Sharia law, whih they are now well on thei way of achieving, thanks to Obama Jr. and his neo colonial Chicago Black Power politics over there in 2006/2007. He will aid that change from the oval office, and it will be bloody.

The grasshoppers there were about 7 inches long and about an inch wide.

If one hit the windshield it was like a smallbird.Thunk!

A person would be a Darwin Award prospect not to wear a helmet while riding a motorcycle.

I hear that motorcycle touring there is popular among certain members of the lefty black caucus. We will be hearing more about Kenya as the CIA likley starts becoming active there on the presidential hope and change order.

 I don't know if this has been posted before, but it confirms that BO, Sr. wasn't on the celebrated airlift, although it fails to explain why or how. (There's a photo of the Hagsbergs, Mboya and some of the airlift students at the link.)

Cold warrior for racial equality
By Dana Seidenberg
Posted Saturday, February 7 2009 at 11:13

Whether it is for expanding people’s democratic space, press freedom, better pay for workers or the preservation of the environment, the choice of whether to participate in the political passions of the day is open to all of us. Despite her origins as an outsider, American-born Gloria Hagberg, a long-time Nairobi resident, has played her part.

A large canvas spanning nearly a century — with most of those years spent in Nairobi — is a colourful portrait of a life well spent — creating groundbreaking institutions, teaching, performing the roles of devoted wife and mother and, as a detail, by coincidence, a bit of personal involvement with the Obama family.

Hagberg did her bit for bringing about a more inclusive, non-racial society through her decades of involvement with the United Kenya Club and her work as a teacher at the Hospital Hill School, Nairobi’s first racially integrated school.

In the process, she became involved with some of the stellar personalities of Kenya’s Independence movement. After Independence, she continued to participate in the struggle for a just society.

Born in 1913 in New York, the daughter of an Irish policeman, Gloria Hagberg was one of only two women in her class at Brooklyn College to graduate with a degree in physics.

In 1935, she married Cornell University graduate Gordon Hagberg, a newspaperman born in India of missionary parents.

With the intensification of the Cold War, America began expanding cultural programmes in many of the world’s emerging nations.

Having always wanted to return to India, in 1950 Gordon got a job in the United States Information Service (USIS) and the couple spent two years in Madras.

It seemed almost fated that their next overseas assignment with USIS would bring them to East Africa, as Gordon’s parents had met in Lamu and married in Zanzibar.

In 1956, when the Hagbergs arrived in Nairobi, the Emergency was in its last two years.

Though restrictive colonial ways still prevailed, those in power were beginning to face the inevitability of Kenya becoming independent rather sooner than they had foreseen.

The following year, Ghana became free, paving the way for Kenya and other states still under colonial occupation to move into the community of free nations.

With Independence concretised into hopeful probability, these were exhilarating times in Kenya as well.

The couple found themselves caught up in the swirl of progressive political events in Nairobi.

The Hagbergs didn’t restrict themselves to the starchy, closed-off British colonial social circuit. Rather, they reached out to up-and-coming Kenyans involved in the movement towards self-government.

This was partly because it was their job, but it was mostly because the Hagbergs were the kind of people they were.

The establishment of a racially mixed society that was also an integral aspect of the Independence struggle had an early home in the United Kenya Club.

Established in 1947 by Thomas Askwith, a Briton, and others as a pioneering, integrated social club to provide a place where Africans, Asians and Europeans could, in Askwith’s words, “appreciate how little there was dividing them,” members met every Wednesday at a building near the Railway Terminal.

By the late 1950s, when Gloria and her husband joined, it had grown to include many of the leading lights of the Independence movement and become well established, with a club building at the foot of State House Road (where it continues to thrive).

Lawrence Sagini, who in 1962 would become minister of education, Dr Julius Kiano and his then African-American wife Ernestine, Sir Ernest Vasey, minister for finance (1952-59), and his wife Hannah, and Sir Derek and Lady Erskine, John and Joan Karmali, who were also involved in integrated education, as well as budding industrialists such as the Manjis and Manu Chandaria were all involved with the club in one way or another. Later pioneering editor Hilary and his wife Fleur Ng’weno would also become members.

The Club provided an early public forum for guest speakers when racial restrictions in the city continued to limit free expression elsewhere.

Speakers at the traditional Wednesday lunch and discussion would include “anyone who had any influence” — among them Sir Ernest Vasey and in 1956, Jaramogi Oginga Odinga, in 1959 and 1961, Tom Mboya and in November 1961, Mzee Jomo Kenyatta himself, recently released from detention.

Another institution the Hagbergs supported was Hospital Hill School, the first experimental, racially integrated primary school in Nairobi, begun in 1949 by the Karmalis.

When in 1956, Gloria’s daughter, Paula, attended as a 10-year-old, it was a three-room schoolhouse on Arboretum Road with 70 pupils, equally divided among the three racial groups.

Paula remembers it as her favourite school experience.

The children, including Marsden Madoka and so many others who would figure large in Kenya’s future political arena, easily formed friendships across the racial divide in its supportive environment. Tom Mboya and Charles Njonjo were just two of the personalities involved in the success of the school.

Not walking [sic] to leave Kenya after his stint in the USIS had ended, Gordon Hagberg left government service in 1959 to begin work in the Washington-based African-American Institute and then became Director of the East African office of the Institute of International Education.

It was through these positions that he helped organise the influential student airlifts of 1959, 1960 and 1962.

It was at this time he and Gloria came to know freedom fighter, trade unionist and student airlift organiser Tom Mboya and many others.

While Gordon worked with Tom Mboya and others to secure scholarships for Kenyan students to pursue degrees at American universities as well as to raise funds for chartered flights to the United States, Gloria helped run the orientation classes for students as they were going overseas for the first time.

She had the satisfaction of seeing many of these young Kenyans return to pursue successful careers in their new country. Lasting friendships developed, including with Pamela Mboya and Lawrence Sagini.

Gloria managed to pursue teaching wherever she was and worked as a full-time teacher at Hospital Hill School, eventually becoming its deputy headmistress.

She taught students with special needs as well as English.

Hospital Hill became the primary school attended by many of the children of the country’s administrators and political leaders. By 1973, the school had moved to larger premises in Parklands and was finally handed over to the City Council.

With Gloria fully employed by the school, and having like so many other expatriates become enamoured of the young country and its people, the Hagbergs decided to make Kenya their home.

After Independence, they bought a 750-acre dairy farm at Naro Moru, the same farm where Born Free, the famous film about George and Joy Adamson and their lioness, Elsa, was shot.

In 1973, in the midst of planning all sorts of innovative projects for the farm including raising trout and developing methane-powered electricity, tragedy befell the family. Gordon was diagnosed with untreatable cancer and had three months to live.

The family all went back to the United States to seek a second opinion, but unfortunately the prognosis had been true. Gloria returned to Kenya alone and took a flat on Riverside Drive, selling the farm after five years.

In the 1980s and well into her 70s and retired, Glora was approached by the well-known educator and former MP Eddah Gachukia to run her Riara Kindergarten.

Today, she credits Gloria for giving her the start she needed to develop that one small school into the many Riara Schools, including Riara Springs Girls’ Secondary School.

During the same years, as a lifelong member of the United Kenya Club, Gloria moved into its newly built residential premises.

An excellent place to live if one can afford the rent, it combines the privacy of one’s own flat, a library with daily newspapers from around the world and social support.

When in need of company and conversation, a resident can always find any number of like-minded people downstairs on the terrace. Paula Hagberg Schramm recently returned to keep her mother company.

At 95, Gloria has just begun winding down, dropping her many social engagements.

Yet she continues to support social welfare organisations and still attends meetings of the East African Women’s League (another group she refused to join until it was racially integrated after Independence) and the American Women’s Association.

And the detail? The detail is about Gloria’s personal relationship with the family of President-elect Barack Obama.

The USIS had provided a house and staff for the family in Muthaiga near the US ambassador’s residence.

Their cook was Hussein Onyango Obama, none other than the paternal grandfather of President Obama. Gloria recalls the times Hussein’s son, the youthful student Barack Obama Sr, would visit their house, announcing: “I’ve come to see the old man!”

Although the young Obama Sr. left for the University of Hawaii before the first formal student airlift, he did maintain his friendship with the Hagbergs when he returned to Kenya. Paula has memories of Hussein cutting an intimidating figure, “tall, dignified and stern-faced, yet kind.”

Having adapted to British ways from a stint serving the British Army in Burma, Hussein Obama held everyone to a high standard of excellence — in school and in life.

Seeing the advantages of modern life before many others did in his home area near Lake Victoria, he had his children attending school, wearing Western clothes and provided his home with Western furnishings including a table where the family would sit and eat with cutlery. Second, as a Muslim, he wore a fez as well as a kanzu and vest.

Also unusual for the times, he had learned to read and write.

Gloria remembers Hussein reading his Koran and other books at night by the light of an oil lamp, as well as her shock and frustration that the landlord had refused to provide electricity to the staff houses.

Many of these points have been corroborated in Barack Obama’s journey of discovery of his Kenyan roots Dreams From My Father.

Through having known Hussein Onyango Obama and his son Barack Obama Sr., Gloria has felt that same immediacy and connection that so many Kenyans feel for America’s new leaders.

The threads that run through Gloria Hagberg’s life of hard work, open-mindedness and friendship have been woven together with the lives of many others who strive to leave the world a better place than they found it.

>>>>Barack Obama wrote that his father “had been selected by Kenyan leaders and American sponsors to attend a university in the United States,”

Your account is also consistent with Ambassador Ogego’s WRIF interview. During the Interview, Ogego said that Obama Sr. was one of the Big 5. Big 5, in Kenya, has 2 meanings. One refers to popular wild animals. The other refers to members of Kenya’s executive pentagon.

The Big Five Executive Politicians are: Mwai Kibaki, Kalonzo Musyoka, Raila Odinga, Musalia Mudavadi and Uhuru Kenyatta.

Now, FYI, Uhuru Kenyatta was friends with Paul Robeson. Robeson was a teacher at Mercer Island High School while Stanley Ann attended. Paul Robeson was also a friend of Frank Davis and an International traveler to Moscow, Kenya/Africa and possibily Cuba.

Mercer Island High School was/is also a recipient of grants from the Luce Founation that funds Student Travel to questionable locations. They also do the travel programs under some type of diplomatic status.

We also have already seen Obama Jr.’s connections to Raila Odinga since Obama campaigned for him in 2004.

So, if Ambassador Ogego is correct and Obama Senior was one of the big five, maybe there are records with one of the above listed names instead of Barack Obama.

Robeson was a teacher at Mercer Island High School while Stanley Ann attended.

Do you have a source for that?

This article from Washington State History Link says Robeson "never returned to Seattle" after a "humiliating encounter" there in 1952:

Paul Robeson overcomes red-baiters to appear in Seattle Civic Auditorium on May 20, 1952.

On May 20, 1952, famed African American social activist, actor, and singer Paul Robeson (1898-1976) overcomes opposition from anti-communists, a press blackout, and an initial City Council ban on his appearance to lecture and perform in Seattle's Civic Auditorium (now the Opera House at Seattle Center).

This was not Robeson's first visit to Seattle or his first clash with its conservative and anti-communist elements. He passed through the city in January 1952 on his way to a Canadian labor rally in Vancouver, B.C., but U.S. officials barred him from crossing the border. Robeson drove back to Seattle and delivered his remarks by telephone.

Robeson returned in early May of that year and addressed a cross-border audience of 35,000 at the Blaine Peace Arch. Shortly after this, the Seattle City Council abruptly cancelled his scheduled May 20 lecture/performance in the Civic Auditorium on the absurd grounds he would "tend to cause antagonism to the Negro race." In truth, Robeson's outspoken advocacy of civil rights, socialism, and the Soviet Union had already made him a marked man amid the mounting McCarthyist hysteria of the time.

Robeson's appearance was part of a Northwest tour organized by Communist editor Terry Pettus, KIRO radio personality Jack Kinzell (who was fired for his efforts), and Seattle civil rights leaders Vincent Davis, Lester Catlett, and James McDaniels. They sued to lift the ban. On May 8, a Superior Court judge ruled in Robeson's favor, but this left fewer than two weeks for promotion, and The Seattle Times and Seattle Post-Intelligencer refused to advertise the concert/lecture. As a result, Robeson appeared before a half-empty hall, and the event barely broke even. He never returned to Seattle.

Forty-Six years after this humiliating encounter, Seattle City Council Member Peter Steinbrueck submitted a resolution honoring the great activist/actor's April 9th birthday as "Paul Robeson Day." It passed without dissent.

Mercer Island isn’t in Seattle. I’ve posted a lot on Paul Robeson and have cited my sources. Can’t dig up my cites at the moment.

Mercer Island isn’t in Seattle.

That's splitting hairs, isn,t it? It's a tiny island separated from downtown Seattle by a bridge, and it's considered part of the Seattle metro area.

If Robeson had taught there, it would certainly have been remembered, and celebrated, by Seattle historians. According to his bio, he underwent major protrate surgery in 1955, and became increasingly mentally disturbed. When his passport was restored by a Supreme Court ruling, he gave concerts in the both the Soviet Union and Carnegie Hall in 1958, then moved to England sometime before 1960. There's no evidence of, or rationale for, his teaching at Mercer High School during the years Ann Dunham attended.

You are right. I made the whole thing up. Who would think a Moscow appointed Committee Member of the CPUSA would be teaching at a Marxist High School with other teachers that were members of CPUSA.

And if you really concerned about the ‘splitting hairs’ of the location of Mercer Island and your quote that means nothing, you would do searches on my prior posts on Paul Robeson to find the cites.

Talk about splitting hairs. It's a suburb about 10 minutes from downtown, less than five minutes from the city limits. I know because I live in Seattle and go there all the time.

It sits on an Island in Lake Washington, whose western shores mark the Seattle city limits. You just go west from Mercer Island accross the I-90 floating bridge and you're in Seattle.

And no one remembers a high-profile figure such as Robeson teaching at Mercer High. Not one student, a fellow Marxist teacher, a parent, the entire population of Seattle, or the local newspapers. That's quite some conspiracy of silence.

I have. You haven't presented any credible proof that Robeson taught at Mercer High School during the period 1956-1960, or at any other time.

Justice Roberts Agreed to read all of my documents

“I Did It. Justice Roberts Agreed to read all of my documents

“Yesterday I traveled to Idaho. I was able to address Chief Justice Roberts during the question answer session after his lecture. There were numerous cameras recording this event and simultaneous feed broadcast to all the campuses of the University of Idaho. Roughly 5,000 people in all the campuses had an opportunity to hear what I had to say, it is in video archives and now everybody knows the truth and knows that leftist media thugs such as Seattle Washington Observer shamelessly twist the truth to fit their Pro Obama blind idiot agenda.

[snip]

“I...told Roberts. My name is Orly Taitz, I am an attorney from Southern California. I left home at three o’clock in the morning and flew and drove thousands of miles to talk to you and ask you a question”. Roberts seemed to be impressed by that and I continued.

“Are you aware that there is criminal activity going on in the Supreme Court of the United States. I have submitted my case Lightfoot v Bowen to you. You agreed to hear it in the conference of all 9 Justices on January 23.

“Your clerk, Danny Bickle, on his own accord refused to forward to you an important supplemental brief, he has hidden it from you and refused to post it on the docket. “

if you are worried that being discovered to be the son of Malcolm X, obama can can claim to be a 'natural born citizen' - forget it. There's a far better chance that he was born in africa as the son of Malcolm X than obama sr. Malcolm X had more and better reasons to hide the result of his infidelities than obama sr ever did.

"Davis's initial contacts with Hawai`i all had extremely strong ILWU ties. Paul Robson's own Hawai`i acquaintances, which he passed on to Davis, insured that "when I came over, one of the first things that I got involved with -- well, I met all the ILWU brass, Jack Hall and all of them, and I went -- they had both of us over to various functions for them -- Harriet Bouslog (ILWU lawyer recruited by Bridges who defended the Smith Act case) was also a good friend" (Davis 1986a, 5:29-30). Davis soon realized that he had arrived at a very important moment in Hawai`i labor history. The huge International Longshoreman's Workers Union (ILWU) strike was imminent, pitting labor against the Big Five. For Davis, this was the kind of political ferment and struggle between the powerful and powerless that he thrived upon...."

WHAT BARACK OBAMA LEARNED

It's a very long trail that runs from DuBois, Robeson, Malcolm X, Frank Marshall Davis to Chicago and into the White House.

Many prayers for Dr.Orly tonight. Prayers for our country and our collective soul. We just watched ‘Media Malpractice’ tonight(came in the mail friday) and although I knew what the left stream media was doing....I really had no idea how blatant and rampaging it was..because we seldom watch the likes of Chrissy Matthews, Campbell Brown, Olberman,Couric and company.

We are on the edge of a constitutional crisis in this country..regardless of Obama’s eligibility. Each and every secret bill that he and the democrat congress have ‘passed’ in the last 50 days, has constitutional issues. It is unconstitutional to steal the private wealth of a country in order to promote a collective rip off! It is time to get mad....It is time to stand up...It is time to shout!

God Bless Free Republic, Dr. Orly...and every soldier and citizen willing to stand up NOW!!

...whether a person governed by the laws of Great Britain at the time of their birth could be considered a natural "born" citizen of the US.....

Answer is obvious.

The only way they will ever answer such a question is by changing the venue,opening up a new discussion as we have seen by so many of the trolls on here.

If we can keep up the heat they will slowly roast.

No question now about how and why ozero is pushing everything he can through at warp speed. He knows the end(political of course) is near and he wants to go down as advancing his Socialist agenda ASAP before he is chased out of office or loses credibility.

Also no coincidence Obamby stole everything form the Clintons he possibly could and no combines a deadly combinaiton of stealth triangulation with astroturfing all to an end of advancing Marixan Socialism.

Every hour this impostor is in charge adds up to dire consequences for those who love the country and its future.
