I belive I said I was old and pissed off. How much more anger do you need? I guess I'm not making myself clear.
As much as I despise Obama, I have to admire his audacity. He knows, has known for years that he his not eligible for the Presidency, but has gambled everything that he can hold people off until he actually takes office, at which time the “natural born” requirement becomes a dead letter.
It’s going to be up to the courts to decide. But frankly, I am not hopeful.
If these folks (or ones like them) never say anything, then the tree in the forest did not fall. And that is the sad truth. Our world revolves around these schmucky interpreters of reality.
You've got to bring more than that, if you want to suck the fighting spirit out of us, vampire.
Reality will not be settled without the full participation of American patriots. Suck that, vampire.
We have to keep an eye out for that needle in his sealed haystack. It's just not possible that he was able to cover all his tracks.
We have to also pray that eyes be opened and wisdom kick in.
Just go and lie down somewhere until the fight is over.
Thanks for watching my back.
B Hussein Obama the first man to hold the office of:
"ALLEGED PRESIDENT ELECT"
In order to be a US Senator you have to have been a citizen for 8 years.
If Obama was never naturalized then he was never eligible to be in Congress.
If the Supreme Court takes the responsiblity to declare Obama ineligible (the burden of proof is on him) but is ignored for whatever reason the only recourse they may have is to refuse to swear him in.
If they don’t swear him in I don’t think he can be Prez.
I have probably been in the fight longer than you have been alive. I know one thing. Underestimate the enemy at you own peril.
Looks like it is going to happen. What's a better to nullify the constitution than be elected when not qualified. When Obama is sworn in, the constitution is trash.
Good Hunting... from Varmint Al
Then stop whining and get in fighting spirit. You're not doing anyone any favors by advocating for apathy.
So the situation's bad. What are you going to do about it? Convince us all to lie down and give up? I, for one, refuse to submit to that invitation.
"Red-blooded" indeed. Find 'em, friend.
It’s just that so many people are not taking this seriously and those who do, like those on FreeRepublic don’t seem to understand how utterly horrific this could get. That SOB may only be Carter born again, but if he is what his past associations suggest he is a lot of people could die.
This isn’t the first time this sort of thing has happened and if we really want to stop it, we had better face up to how ugly it could get. Liberals are true believers in a way that many conservatives are not. Conservatives THINK. Liberals feel and that gives them a unity and purpose that conservatives often lack.
Dismissing Obama as a lightweight or his idiot looking supporters as pushovers is an easy way to get sucker-punched when things go south.
So stand with us, would ya?
“I have probably been in the fight longer than you have been alive.”
Yeah well I’d say that was probably pretty likely seeing as how we’re so far down the damn tube. Like losing don’t you.
Jesus! I've never been anywere else. Pay closer attention. It would suit you better.
Oh for Christ sake! Facing reality and not underestimating what you are facing isn’t cowardice.
There’s no reason whatsoever to be calling anyone a coward here. Defeatist is the word.
This will only get traction if it is made an issue in the MSM. And the only circumstance in which they will acknowledge this is if Limbaugh, Hannity, Savage, etc. begin to harp on this on a daily basis. 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.
What the hell is that supposed to mean? I've been in the fight because I don't like to lose. Dry behind your ears and figure it out.
I was saying that some one WASN’T a coward for facing reality.
You don't defeat any enemy with pipe dreams. I doubt this issue will ever get to The Supreme Court. I pray I'm wrong.
Awww - Don’t be a Debbie Downer :(
No matter what, there are many of us who are suspicious and as long as we try to get the word out, watch this guy, and remain active and vigilant there is still a lot we can do BC issue or not!
I know one thing, and that is, the type of people who've sold out their core principles to support an empty charlatan like Obama only understand one thing, and that is overwhelming force.
We cannot "win over" people such as these. There is no appealing to their reason. They will not accept facts, or any logic which is in opposition to their belief in their Chosen One. We have already seen that approaching them with intelligence is pointless.
No, they must be forced to understanding, sad as that is to say. Hopefully, that will be accomplished through force of the courts, or of the Congress. If not, then The Founders left us with one final device, which is overt resistance.
I, for one, do not believe that the insurgents amongst us have the stomach for a real armed struggle, nor do I think they have any inkling of the magnitude of resistance they're foolishly priming.
As many here have said, "keep your powder dry."
Your post is very informative. I have been sitting here trying to figure out why the Big3 on talk radio have not said one word on this issue. Of course they are afraid of the “fairness doctrine”. Even Corsi seems to have dropped the issue.
You say you "understand the need for optimism, but..."
What do you propose to do about it?
I have probably said that more than anyone. But I also look at things from a realistic view point. Both go hand and and hand.
I, for one, do not believe that the insurgents amongst us have the stomach for a real armed struggle, nor do I think they have any inkling of the magnitude of resistance they’re foolishly priming.
It’s not clear that simply producing the BC answers the questions. Some of the constitutional/legal questions that apparently are not settled:
1. In terms of eligibility to serve as President, is there a distinction between citizenship based on birthplace and citizenship based on descent?
2. If so, which means of attaining citizenship make one eligible to serve as President?
3. Under the laws in effect at the time, what is the effect on the “natural born” status of the child when either father or mother is a non-U.S. citizen?
4. What is the effect on a child’s “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 father’s land?
5. If there are factual ambiguities relevant to an individual’s “natural born citizen” status, what is the standard of proof that applies to eligiblity to serve as President?
6. What is the result/procedure if the evidence is insufficient to conclude an individual who is or may be the President-elect is a “natural born citizen”?
7. If a child’s parent’s foreign citizenship, under the laws of that nation, descends to the child at birth, what effect, if any, does that have on the child’s “natural born citizen” status? If it creates a disqualification that can be cured, what is the procedure/standard for curing it?
8. In this extremely important and unusual circumstance (verifying a President-elect’s qualification to serve as president), on what grounds can the presumption of regularity of an official document (such as a BC) be challenged, and who has standing to do so? Does the nature of the potential harm, and the infrequency in which fact patterns raise the issue, militate for a more lenient standard for stating a claim?
Ok. So where do we go from here?
If you’re up to speed on the depth of Obama’s treason, then you bear responsibility to do something about it.
What’s it gonna be?
Actually, blackbart.223, I have to give you credit. Without your input I never would have known how many folks won’t give up the fight.
I was a little concerned after reading so many posts on other subjects that reflected defeatist attitudes. But thanks to you I know I am not alone in the fight to preserve our Constitutional Republic.
I am no spring chicken either and am not so concerned for my own welfare, but I am concerned for the welfare of my children and grandchildren. For them I will never ‘give up’. Although the road to victory may be difficult, nothing is impossible.
Again, I thank you for your posts for you have renewed my faith in those that are members of ‘Free Republic’. Your words are a great example of a seeming negative turned in to a positive.
For those of you that got upset at blackbart.223, lighten up a little. blackbart.223 has brought us together and together we will win!!
This is the good that could come out of this, regardless what ends up being the facts re Obama. If the Supreme Court will just clear up this area of the law, that would be very helpful.
The Supremes also would do well to “suggest” that Congress create some kind of enforcement mechanism for the “natural born citizen” qualification.
Right now everyone is saying “it’s not my job” to figure out if X is eligible to be President.
Do you really believe that's going to fly with over half of the American people? Do you honestly believe that we're simply going to throw up our hands and give up without a fight?
"Dead letter", my butt.
All we can do is try to get these issues that call his legitimacy into question so that when the time comes there will be more people who will stand up, even if passively.
Personally, I think it will come to violence as the left feels they have the advantage and when they see power slipping from their grasp they will react as they have for the last 8 years. The difference is that this time they will have the power of the state behind them.
Waco, Texas, Elian Gonzales, and more will be repeated and much worse.
I hope it never happens but I just don’t see an easy way out.
I would suggest taking this whole issue to a brand new level...
If everyone (or at least a large number of folks) were to refuse to show their Birth Certificate for anything which currently requires the showing of said article, would simply refuse. And when they are denied the service they are requesting, file a lawsuit in federal court for violation of your rights. After all, if Obama doesn’t have to show HIS birth certificate (real one) to verify that he is really a NATURAL BORN US Citizen as the Constitution requires - then why should you have to show yours for admission to college, for your first driver’s license, or any other reason?
Leave the guy alone—for all our sakes.
He expressed his opinion. It got under your skin for some inscrutable reason.
Now it’s your constant haranging that is weighing down the thread.
Please. Post on something besides the fact that you don’t like the tone of someone else’s posts.
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.
You thank someone for helping you toward the grave? That's pathetic.
To anger a liberal, tell him the truth!
Sure, there's some ridicule of Obama supporters here, but I've rarely seen any Freeper misjudge their capacity for mindless violence and obedience to The Hive.
If anything, I think you've misjudged the average conservative, who understands history, believes in our Constitution, and who is, on average, prepared to protect and defend his God given liberties with deadly force, if necessary.
When someone watches your back it can keep you out of the grave. But I don't expect you to understand that.
This doesn’t need “traction.” It is purely a constitutional/legal issue at this point.
I do trust that the SCOTUS would at least grant cert. on this issue if a case comes to them that meets their standard for granting cert.
It’s a high standard to get a case heard at the SCOTUS and, especially, they know that no matter what they do, they will be accused of overreaching, politicizing the Cout and so on.
Jawboning by smart, but not expert radio talk show hosts-—on a case that is convoluted in both law and facts-—not only is not “necessary,” but not in the least helpful.
(And the last thing Limbaugh, Hannity et al. would be cowed by is the prospect of the Fairness Doctrine. Are you kidding? If the Rats do try that, those guys and their listeners will be shouting from the stratosphere.)
I hope so, as I believe it will come to that, and what people may be asked to do isn’t an easy thing.
Well then, knock off the morale-busting tirade. It's not helping. State your willingness to stand and fight. That'll help.
What Republic? This is nothing mor than a socialist democracy at this point.
If facing the truth busts your morale then stay five steps away from me. Better yet ten.
It is still a republic. Just a little off course at this point. Well maybe a lot off course.
