Skip to comments.Congressman Steve King Addresses Obama's Eligibility: Says They Will Deal With It After Election
Posted on 07/31/2012 8:34:25 AM PDT by Seizethecarp
(my transcription of audio) In any case it would have been awfully hard to fraudulently file the birth notice of Barack Obama being born in Hawaii and get that into our public libraries and that microfiche that they keep of all the newspapers published. That doesn't mean that there aren't some other explanations on how they might have announced that by telegram from Kenya. The list goes on. But, drilling into that now, even if we could get a definitive answer and Barack Obama was conclusively not born in America, I don't think we could get that case sold between now and November.
The most important thing we can do is elect a president who will give his oath of office to uphold the constitution of the United States, to take care that the laws be faithfully executed, somebody that will be constrained by their oath, and someone that will respect the other two branches of government. That's not Barack Obama, in my view.
And so I think we can't get there on this proposal between now and November, but I think it's important for us to take this subject up the other side of November and make it clear that a candidate for the presidency of the United States would have to certify their birth so that we know where they're born and the American people need to have access to that rather than watching Barack Obama spend hundreds of thousands of dollars to try to delay and obstruct the investigations into the circumstances of his birth.
Is King the first congressman to suggest that Barry was born in Kenya and it was the grandparents who were notified and registered the birth, which triggered the newspaper announcements?
Ping to Congressman King saying:
“That doesn’t mean that there aren’t some other explanations on how they might have announced that by telegram from Kenya.”
That statement is as ridiculous as gun control laws.
How many criminals follow the law?
Do you REALLY expect him to follow the law? Even after breaking one to get the office in the first place?
I’m not sure about your thoughts on King but I CAN say that he’s closing the barn door behind the horse.
The precedent has been set; an election trumps and negates the US Constitution.
This whole thing could be solved if the administration wanted it solved.....or Congress wanted it solved. Evidently they don’t so it won’t.
Neither Congress nor the Courts will touch it.
If they were going to, they would have in early 2009. They didn’t.
If they did find Obama ineligible to be president, that would create a massive Constitutional crisis. Neither Congress nor the Courts will allow that.
Obama’s eligibility is a dead issue. He has been serving for 3.5 years.
The Congressman might as well go on a hunt to determine whether Al Gore really won in 2000. So what if Gore did? So what if Obama was born in Kenya? It’s too late now, Congressman.
“The precedent has been set; an election trumps and negates the US Constitution.”
I don’t believe any precedent can be set in the law if Barry’s eligibility as to birth location was based on FRAUD!
Barry’s claim to eligibility by have just one US citizen parent and born on US soil does appear to be precedent that no court will touch.
But Barry’s legal team are already laying the groundwork to defend his eligibility as precedent even it he was NOT born in the US.
See my FR vanity thread:
“Obama cites US v Marguet-Pillado. Dicta implies Obama eligible even if born in Kenya”
That’s the bottom line with the eligibility issue according to the ruling elites: the time is never right to address it.
It was only on March 1, 2012 that “probable cause” of forgery was found by the first and only law enforcement investigation into one of Barry's BCs...right in the middle of an election year and by a Sheriff who is extremely controversial (and credible, IMO).
“The most important thing we can do...”
Since our “legal system” is largely base on precedence, I am worried it is too late. Can we exclude “non-citizens” from holding office? Congress should have been all over this as soon as it was raised and the Demonatic party is involved.
“I don’t think we could get that case sold between now and November.”
Everyone has known about him not being eligible since before 2008, now King says there is not enough time, the truth is there will never be enough time, justice will never be served on this fraudulent usurper.
I want to be wrong about this, but just the history of the last 3 years, is proof enough for me. I can hear them now, lets just leave the past in past and move on.
Waiting until after an election to pursue the forging of state and federal documents and SSN fraud is not an act of political courage...today’s GOP is a party of wimps.
“Ret. Col. Lawrence Sellin Explains Why Identity Thief Barack Obama Is Not In Jail.”
Great interview if you have the time.
FU to almost all congresscritter offal.
No, he’s saying that Obama wouldn’t do that, Romney would.
Why Congress would be any more likely to act on the issue after this election that in 2008, he doesn’t seem to address.
And the thousands of dead soldiers, civilians and yes, even enemy combatants slaughtered by some ineligible CIC sitting around illegally in the Oval Office? The same office occupied by General Washington, General Eisenhower, Lincoln, Reagan?
In a case like this, justice cannot rest - I don't care if he is impeached 12 hours before the election. I could give a rip if he is removed or not by a Senate vote. The point is he needs to be impeached today.
When someone commits a crime, say murder, and eventually gets out of jail, he has not set a precedence; he cannot commit murder again with no punishment because no precedence was set in the commission of a crime. Obummer is a criminal who has committed a crime...it is not a precedence, and he should be in jail with all the flunkies who helped put him in place.
The investigation of Gore vs. Bush was held after the election by a national association of journalists who were hell-bent on proving Gore won. They counted, recounted and tried in vain to show Gore had the edge, but they couldn’t prove it.
And the fact remains that all Gore needed to win was to carry home state of Tennessee and he didn’t. That is telling.
That said, I disagree with Congressman King. It is not difficult to hold up Sheriff Arpaio’s findings and show that the BC released on the White House website is fraudulent.
And you can include a forged Selective Service Registration form as well as a fraudulently obtained SSN.
I suppose Congress is waiting to deal with these charges against the Obama DOJ until after the election............
Statement of Judiciary Committee Chairman Lamar Smith Full Committee Hearing Oversight of the U.S. Department of Justice
For Immediate Release

Statement of Judiciary Committee Chairman Lamar Smith
Full Committee Hearing
Oversight of the U.S. Department of Justice
Chairman Smith: Regrettably, the Obama administration has shown a disregard for the Constitution and rule of law in an effort to impose their agenda on the American people. There are many examples.
Efforts to block congressional inquiries about the Administrations actions undermine the balance of power on which our nation was founded.
The Department of Justice still has not provided enough information about Operation Fast and Furious so that the American public and Congress can judge who in the Department bears responsibility for the decisions that led to Agent Brian Terrys death.
The Justice Department refuses to comply with Congressional subpoenas that may shed light on why this program was authorized and who had knowledge of the inappropriate tactics.
The Department of Justice also has failed to provide relevant information that would have revealed the extent of Justice Kagans involvement in the development of the Affordable Care Act when she was Solicitor General.
If she did give counsel on the health care bill, which was her job, then she should recuse herself rather than evaluating the law as a member of the Supreme Court. The Justice Department has refused to let us interview her former assistant.
Neglecting to enforce or defend the laws enacted by Congress is another violation of the Administrations constitutional obligation to the American people.
Under this President, the Justice Department has engaged in a pattern of selective enforcement of the law in order to advance its own partisan agenda.
For instance, the Obama administration has sought to prevent state and local authorities from enforcing immigration laws.
At the same time, the Justice Department has refused to bring cases against sanctuary cities that violate Federal law by prohibiting their officials from communicating with the Department of Homeland Security about illegal immigrants they encounter.
Such sanctuary cities directly challenge the federal governments authority to enforce immigration laws.
The Administrations unwillingness to uphold immigration laws has led to injuries and even death.
The Administration refuses to defend the Defense of Marriage Act, a law enacted by Congress and signed by then-President Bill Clinton.
This was a significant piece of legislation that was approved by a vote of 342 to 67 in the House and 85 to 14 in the Senate. Regardless of how one feels about the substance of the bill, the Department of Justice has an obligation to defend the laws of the land.
Efforts by the Administration to override election laws enacted by States also raise constitutional concerns.
Instead of acting to prevent voter fraud, the Department of Justice has challenged common-sense voter ID laws that require voters to identify themselves before they are allowed to vote.
The Department of Justice recently moved to block implementation of voter ID laws enacted by legislatures in Texas and South Carolina.
The Texas proposal was based on a similar law passed by the Indiana legislature, which was upheld by the Supreme Court in 2008. The Justice Departments challenge to the law ignores Supreme Court precedent that affirms a states right to enact laws to protect the integrity of its elections.
The Department of Justice even threatened to sue Florida for trying to remove ineligible non-citizens from its voter rolls.
Why would the Department of Justice not want states to remove ineligible felons, ineligible non-citizens, and the dead from their voter rolls?
The Administrations actions arent just wrongthey are arrogant, undemocratic, and an insult to the rule of law.
The Administrations disregard for the Constitution and rule of law not only undermines our democracy, it threatens our national security.
The Justice Department has not taken the initiative to prosecute leaks of national security secrets. Recent leaks about a foiled bomb plot out of Yemen and a cyber attack against Iran are, in the words of Senate Intelligence Chairwoman Dianne Feinstein, very detrimental . . . very concerning . . . [and] hurt our country.
For the past three and half years, this Administration has engaged in a pattern of obstructionism, unaccountability, and partisanship.
The American people should have confidence that the Department of Justice fairly enforces laws. That confidence is lacking today. This hearing will explore how that confidence can be restored.
MEMBERS OF CONGRESS constantly allow Obama to overstep his Constitutional power without even so much as a whimper. We need men and women of integrity and courage not a room full of eunuchs.
