These guys have to stop worrying about Fairness Doctrine and pick up the ball. Or are they just afraid of being made to look like fools in case B.Hussein O. actually comes up with proper documentation?
As it stands, they are starting to lose credibility by ignoring this elephant. And worse yet, they are enabling Hussein's fraud, since MSM thinks if talk radio is ignoring this, they can too. "
Actually, if you look around, you'll see that this issue is starting to be picked up by some mainstream press organizations. The weight and pressure of this story is forcing cracks in the MSM's containment field, and it just won't hold much longer.
If four Justices decide on December 5th to continue Donofrio's suit, this will blow up in the press. There just won't be any way to contain it any longer. Rest assured that the suits in the MSM have already plotted out their damage control campaign, should their blackout fail.
Should I sign "present" in each thread I read?
Windflier, you should know me better than that on these BC threads. You know I feel as you do. I will not just lay down and take it. But you have to admit that basically until the shmeckles on TV say anything, it doesn’t exist, as far as most Americans are concerned.
Me? A vampire? Is there flying involved? Cooooool. Not into blood though — it’s not kosher.
AFAIC, saying things completely suck isn’t necessarily a bad thing (not that bart is saying things completely suck)
On the bright side, no better time to reorders priorities than now. God’s moved to the top of my list.

You vampires really piss me off with your attempts to sucker good patriots into pre-emptive surrender.
I think the story of the American Revolution says what American patriots will do a whole lot better than any scare mongering crap posted to this website or on the internet.
If you're that scared, you need to leave here, because when the moment comes, I know that you won't have my back. And don't think for a moment that you can slink into our brigades later. You will be remembered for who you are, vampire.
They don't completey suck. It't just things could be better. But what the hell I'm still free and intend to stay that way.
Scaremongering? I take it then that you are scared by reality. You go on about how your morale is going to collapse if things are not as rosy as you imagined. Bart.223 is right, if it ever came to it, you would collapse like a house of cards.
American patriot? Your brigades? We aren’t talking about Halo 3, or Red Dawn. Jesus, you have no idea!
This thread got started because people like you are pinning your hopes on the birth certificate issue. If it happens I will be the first to swallow my pride and admit you are right. What will you do if I right?
We can never give up. We will never surrender.
Waco, Texas, Elian Gonzales, and more will be repeated and much worse.
Yeah, and the British tax collectors had "the power of the state" behind them too. You can't honestly believe that red blooded Americans are going to simply surrender their arms and their freedom without a fight, do you?
The mettle of the law-abiding, taxpaying, flag waving patriot hasn't been tested on American soil in something like 150 years, but you can bet your axx it's still there.
It really chaps my butt to hear people tiptoeing around the idea that Obama and his minions might somehow implement an overwhelming and wholesale destruction of freedom in this country. If people honestly believe that to be a real probability, then they need to start loudly discussing what we're going to do about it.
Enough of the pansycake crap. Stop trying to spook everyone, and tell us what you're going to do to prevent it.
By "traction," I mean that this issue needs to at least become public knowledge. I would guess that less than 5% of the American public is even aware that there are questions about Hussein's legitimacy. If every voter was made aware of the fact that their president-elect's country of birth and citizenship have not been conclusively established, I think there would be a whole lot more concern, despite the media's attempt to keep a lid on this. I have very little faith in SCOTUS to resolve this. They will conclude that this is too "political" and shut this down as soon as the formalities are done with.
I really like that idea of a national birth certificate withholding campaign as suggested in this thread. That would be a great one for Rush to instigate, a la "Operation Chaos."
I prefer “Obama the Usurper”.
Great post. You've said exactly what I wanted to but with the sarcasm and irreverence they deserve.
“The Constitution means what we today decide it means,”
The Nazi’s would sometimes say “we decide who is a Jew” when they found one useful. From someones biography can’t remember who.
Have you ever faced death? This is an important question since you seem to question others on the subject.
Re-reading Unintended Consequences at the moment. Good uplifting read.
Look. Have you seen those video’s posted of attack helicoters hosing down Iraqi insurgents with 30mm M230’s. Those guys getting hosed are YOU! Thermal imaging systems, 70mm Hydra rockets with flechette warhead, the whole nine yards. Bradleys, Abrams, and Strykers will be deployed against anyone who threatens them. The absolute firepower is enormous. It ain’t gonna be like the revolutionary war. Think the long war in Afghanistan against the Russians.
For those in Rio Linda... watch Gibson in the Patriot.
Waco, Texas, Elian Gonzales, and more will be repeated and much worse.
Something to consider. You've never seen the feds go after a motivated group of Americans prepared to resist and kill agents that are out to kill them.
Some of the things the feds got away with (Weaver, Waco, Elian Gonzales) would have turned out MUCH DIFFERENTLY if they had hit a different group.
FJ, I respect you, and read your well-informed posts on this topic with great interest. You bring something of value to these conversations and stimulate analytical thought and reason.
What I have a problem with is posters who come into these discussions and post the same defeatist statements over, and over, and over again.
Wanna talk about "weighing down the thread"? I can't think of a worse interruption and a worse downer to a serious conversation about the facts and the possible repercussions of this momentous issue.
There is every indication that the American people may finally have to confront the unthinkable... an actual coup d'etat of our constitutional government. People are rightly on high alert about this, and have mounting concerns about their entire futures, and those of their loved ones.
That being said, the sort of defeatist talk I've been protesting does nothing to bolster the spirits or confidence of the readers here, and in fact, does just the opposite; it kills confidence in our ability to effectively stop this menace.
I'm sorry, but when I see someone repeatedly posting defeatist, morale-busting posts in such a time as this, I can't help but ask them to stop.
Some of these posters' communications are no better, and serve no better purpose than what liberal trolls spew here.
Mark my words, the first time active duty military assets like an Apache are used against citizens there will be more blowback than the feds know what to do with.
I'm not a lawyer but it seems to me that since many Americans entrusted Obama with their vote, that those who did vote would be the injured party if Obama is not natural born. Also, simply being on the ballot and not being a valid choice disenfranchises even voters who did not vote for him as he supplanted another cadidate who would be qualified based on birth status.
But it has! From the factcheck.org page, quoted here Polarik's Blog (about 1/6 the way down on my browser)
"Since Sen. Obama has neither renounced his U.S. citizenship nor sworn an oath of allegiance to Kenya, his Kenyan citizenship automatically expired on Aug. 4,1982.
Thank you for your kind words.
I have no problem with your reasoning, just your tactics. To my mind, you said your piece-—say it twice, that’s okay, too. Then move on.
Repeating yourself just gives the other guy the chance to repeat himself.
Ever seen a mother's reaction to a mortal threat to her child? She might be the mildest, most easy-going person you know, but when the threat arises, so does she, and usually in the most astonishing burst of bravery.
I think the American people are wary at this moment, but not yet at "threat" level. I don't know what will have to happen to push us there. I honestly hope we're not, because if we are, there's going to be hell to pay.
My guess is you would be the first to fold when shots are fired in your direction. My current occupation is a paid body guard. Not much chance of being shot but the possibilty is there. What do you do?
Agreed, and the best hope is that they will do so well before they are ready.
We will know if things are getting ugly if they proceed with the Civilian National Security Force Obama and Rahm were talking about. They will call it something else and justify with other reasoning, but that IMO is the thing to watch for. Then we know they mean business.
Alright, then. Why don’t you just keep telling us how hopeless it all is. Maybe you’ll talk some sense into us.
It’s true that the SCOTUS will try to avoid political issues. And that’s how our system is designed to work.
If they view this as a purely political question-—IOW, one regarding which no facts that have been raised raise a constitutional issue that is within their purview to decide-—then I hope SCOTUS so states and gives the nation, and particularly Congress, some idea of how such an objection can be raised in the legislative branch or Electoral College and resolved.
Now, if the SCOTUS were to hold something along the lines of, “Whew, this does look like a problem, but it’s up to the Congress, not the Judiciary to fix it,” THEN “traction” would be very necessary.
My point is that “traction,” strictly speaking, isn’t relevant to the decision on certiorari. That said, should the Court find grounds to grant cert., the fact that there is a widespread controversy on a matter of great importance, and no other means of resolution is apparent, might help push the question of cert. to the tipping point.
Pardon me, if I erred. I'll take a moment and re-read what I replied to you about. It's not my intention to be rude to anyone.

You are right. There will be a full page add in Chicago Newspaper on Dec. 1st, and 3rd. Also, got an e-mail from Newsmax today about the BC issue. I’m seeing bigger name news organizations starting to pick up the story because I think they realize there are growing numbers of Americans who are seeing the light. I’ve been talking to an African American military person through youtube that voted for Obama and whose friends & family also voted for him. THEY ALL REGRET IT!! They have signed petitions and are in the process of sending letters to the Supreme Court. They were very concerned about the racial implecations as well as the Constitutional issues. They are very upset!! I wonder how many others that voted for him feel similar. I think there are more than we think!!
If youre up to speed on the depth of Obamas treason, then you bear responsibility to do something about it.
Whats it gonna be?
Haven't thought it through, what's your suggestion on a course of action?
Haven't visited the birth certificate threads much, have you? Obama has screwed up irretrievably with his obvious forgeries of government documents. He's toast. Either now, or later, but he's toast.
I was definitely being a bit snarky with you in my first statement, but I meant no harm. I've been charged up about some of the more negative posts on this thread tonight.
Sorry about that.
Now,,,We got ‘bout 75,000,000 gun owners in the USA,,,
US Military is ‘bout 2,000,000,000,,,
LEO’s ‘bout 1,5000,000,,,
That makes US gun owners the largest land army on earth !
Now just where is this Mythical force gunna come from that's
gunna Whup our asses ???!?!?!?!???...;0)
I have a friend who is in some placement of merit in our Military... he tells me that the majority of them will always stand with the Constitution. I think we may be facing a split and two nations evolving.
Regardless... I would rather be dead than red. Yes, I have faced death... JESUS tells me there are worse things.
People of standing and stature need to keep pushing for the truth, even after the inauguration, if Obama is sworn in. The American people need to know whether someone has been so successful in subverting the Constitution.
And if not subverted, the American people still need a true asnswer as to how the nation can be kept in such doubt and uncertainty by men seeking high office.
I pray that this NEVER dies until all Hawaii and other records are unsealed. This is just as important to future elections as it is to this one.
I really think birthplace was most important to the FF's. They wanted immersion in the Constitutional system and the president to grow up loving and experiencing their country. It's hard to do that from thousands of miles away.
What is the effect on a childs natural born citizen status if, having attained citizenship by (1) birthplace or (2) descent, subsequently that child is adopted by the citizen of a different nation and made a citizen of his adoptive fathers land?
Under the assumption that natural born means born on U.S. soil for the reasons I stated, Obama's elibility would also be voided this way.
If a childs parents foreign citizenship, under the laws of that nation, descends to the child at birth, what effect, if any, does that have on the childs natural born citizen status?
Here again, I would argue nothing, if born on U.S. soil.
Man, I think I need to take a chill pill. First I got snarky with Rain Drop, now I called you out by mistake. Sheeesh... sorry about that.
I've just gotten so wrankled by some of the negative and defeatist posts on these threads that I kinda went on the warpath tonight. FightinJag yanked my collar upthread, too.
Scout's honor ~ I'll leave it be for the rest of the night. What's left of it anyway.
Me? A vampire? Is there flying involved? Cooooool. Not into blood though its not kosher.
You made me smile ;-)

Alan Keyes ran for President so he may have standing.
Donofrios case has standing but as I recall has been blocked by court bureaucrats standing in his way.
You havn’t answered my question.
We know you meant 2 Million in the armed forces.
Well, I agree. The Federal government needs to remain afraid of a gun-owning population, and for right, Constitutional reasons.
On the bright side, no better time to reorders priorities than now. Gods moved to the top of my list.
I'm hearing you, Gene. It hasn't been my intent to make people wrong for their feelings, but to shake them by their lapels and remind them that we're a long way from defeated.
I think I may have just shaken folks a bit too hard tonight. Apologies to all.
I agree, which is why Obama if he intends what we suspect, will target the military with extensive budget cuts, diversity programs with Obama Youth being the ‘diversity’, cutbacks, and starve it for spare parts. Carter did this and the readiness status dropped drastically.
A poll taken of military personnel stated that 53% of them intended to leave rather than continue serving for the next four years.
Yeah, I've seen that thread. After reading the article, I came away wondering if they'd ever read the Constitution. They seem to think that they can simply get a judge to overrule the Constitutional "natural born citizen" requirement. Geeeez....
LEOs bout 1,5000,000,,, = 1,500,000,,,Duh!...
Think before you flap your gums.
