Skip to comments.When good men do nothing we're sliding from a First World to a Banana Republic

In spite of overwhelming evidence that only one of Obama's parents was an American citizen thus making him ineligible to qualify as a natural-born-citizen a conspiracy of silence has swept across the political landscape. Is it possible that an entire country was 'punked' by a Certification of Live Birth and we have a usurper in the White House?
The courts refuse to hear the case on its merits and politicians avoid the issue like the plague. Not one governor, senator, congressperson or judge has investigated or even questioned the issue. Only one man, an Army doctor, went to the mat and questioned whether Obama met the eligibility requirements set forth in the constitution. For his efforts, Lt. Col. Terry Lakin MD was sentenced to six months in the slammer. He's in Leavenworth because he was sold out by timid politicians, judges, reporters and his own lawyer.
Some claim they remain silent because they're afraid there will be riots in the streets if the truth comes out. This isn't a Banana Republic yet and we're a long ways from Egypt or Libya. If the president is removed from office the vice president will take over. Having Joe Biden as president isn't all that scary -- we've done a lot worse.
To paraphrase Edmund Burke, "When good men do nothing we're no longer a First World but sliding toward a Banana Republic."
You good men (and women) out there need to ratchet up the pressure and demand that Congress investigate why Obama is spending over $1mil to hide a birth certificate worth less than twenty bucks if he has nothing to hide?
Congress is already caving to the demands of the communists.
The political system is breaking down.
We have NO conservative’s running for office that are honest, no not one! None will address the birth issue in any manner, makes them dishonest.
The same applies for ALL of our media talking bobbleheads, they are ALL dishonest.
This means we are in this together, none of the aforementioned will help.
The most important constitutional issue in the history of the republic and they our leaders, ALL of them lie to us via omission of information.
One Freeper’s tagline
“The US is becoming a banana republic, without the bananas. And now without the republic.”
Republicans in congress are NOT caving to the socialists or communists, they are socialists\communists TOO!
This is an assertion or opinion, not a fact.
It is not an indefensible position, but the issue has never been definitively settled.
Obama has spent more like $2 mil to hide his records.
At the right time the riots will come and Obama will use the secret Annexes in the 2007 Presidential Directive to become a Military Dictator for the duration. Congress can void the powers given to Bush which were renewed by Obama in 2009 and 2010 re: terrorism.
Both Repubs and Dems knew Obama was not eligible in January 2008 when the Senate Judiciary Committee (McCaskill, Hillary and Obama) had SR 511 passed by Congress. They dare not admit they willingly violated the Constitution by starting impeachment proceedings. Throw them all out!!!
[shrug] We’ll sort things out after the war is over.
Maybe that is part of this. They hate the constitution, his would help with progressive agenda and prove it is ineffective. Our government is transformed into their world view.
“...but the issue (Obama senior’s citizenship) has never been definitively settled.”
That is why Obama refuses to release his records. He doesn’t want it settled until he transforms Amerikka.
How can we not become a Banana Republic when all we import these days are muzzies and others from 3rd world countries with totally nothing to contribute to this country.
You become what you allow to immigrate.
I hope you do not seriously think the US military would support the imposition of a “military dictatorship” within the US.
Yeah?...So what good has that done, is doing, or will do? Hm?
Sure! I'd like to do something. What? Any suggestions that would really work?
I have written to **all** my representatives on the state and federal ( snail mail and e-mail) several times. I have even written to our secretary of state and attorney general.
My two federal level Senators responded with idiotic letters filled to the brim with DOJ and DNC talking points.
I also leave Post-It notes everywhere with “Where's the Birth Certificate” written on them. I have seen paper currency, too, with “Where's the Birth Certificate” written on them. ( I don't recommend that. As a conservative I don't think we should damage our currency.)
I absolutely have NO NO NO faith in our highest military officers. Did they support in any way the legitimate questions of LTC Lakin, Major Cook, or Captain Rhodes? No! These weenies let these lower level officers swing slowly in the wind!
while the highest officers **might** be willing to fall on a grenade for their soldiers in a battle against a foreign enemy, **NO POSSIBLE WAY** can they be counted on to defend the Constitution against a domestic enemy.
If I ever have reason to be in the company of these highest officers, I will turn my back to them! Citizens who are loyal to the Constitution should SHUN them!
We need a conservative candidate that is willing to address vetting issues and Obama’s avoidance to transparency. McCain made all of it off limits in 2008.
The upper brass would. Their statements and actions prove as much. The question is, will the middle and lower ranking officers? Hopefully not.
Absolutely! You are correct. The upper brass would support a dictatorship.
Look at the comments made after the Ft.Hood shooting.
What have they said or done about DAT?
Look at the despicable manner they have treated lower level officers who asked that Obama’s eligibility be confirmed.
Even the more recent “report” that states the military is too white and male. Funny, I’ve known a few black officers, and none of them ever complained about that. They expect the best and demand the best, period.
Regarding Ft. Hood: Why hasn’t Maj. Hassan gone to court-martial yet? It’s been a year and a half!
For every true American who will fight, they are hundreds of sheep that will just want the security of the new controlling state.
Knowing anything of history at all, only a fool would think it couldn't happen here.
The Big Boo
The US Military under Mullen and Gates already has supported the imposition of a military dictatorship within the US. Look at Northcom and the “fusion” troops whereby the military and police work together.
We are still under martial law by act of Congress giving Bush that power. Posse Commitatus is no longer in effect as long as we are under the national emergency declared after 9/11 relating to terrorism. Congress was supposed to review it, but they refuse to do so. Obama is just waiting for/planning an event to take over before elections.
It's already 'damaged'.
Very good point!
I’d be happy to see the New Sons of Liberty storm and occupy the Hawaii Department of Health records section, then search to their hearts’ content. But I don’t believe they’ll ever find the “real” birth certificate we all seek.
The “written notation” that Abercrombie found in the records, in my paranoid opinion, probably says something to the effect of “name changed to Barry Soetoro upon adoption” and therefore Obummer no longer officially exists.
One way or another, the truth will eventually come out. It always does.
Boehner sent me a questionnaire (asking for money of course). I filled out the stupid thing and then wrote in what you said in so many words. Not a dime from me until the Republicans man up and take down these Communists in the Democratic Party, Obama and Pelosi especially, for what they did. They are liars. Their words mean nothing.
Big O is in no hurry. Big O is in no hurry for anything that brings stress and he will be really stressed if Hassan has to sleep the big sleep.
Then he will have to make the decision to commute. (Or has that decision already been made?)
So, no “thanking the troops” from you.
These **highest** military officers were despicable in letting down and failing to supporting LTC Lakin, Major Cook, and Captain Rhodes. Their questions were legitimate. And...LTC Lakin testified in his court martial that he was told by these **HIGHEST** military officer that, Yes, indeee, his concerns were reasonable.
Sorry...But after these **HIGHEST** military officers let down their troops concerning Obama’s eligibility I conclude they would have no interest whatsoever in defending the Constitution against domestic enemies. They simply can NOT be trusted to do that.
While the **highest** military officers might fall on a grenade for their men in a battle against a foreign enemy, I am NOT NOT NOT counting on them to defend the Constitution against a domestic enemy.
In the unlikely event that I should come into contact with these **HIGHEST** military officers, I will turn my back on them. I will shun them.
As for our **brave** and honorable troops, they deserve better.
Nice to know.
I guess you know more officers and enlisted than most and have far greater insight as to their levels of professionalism, education, dedication, ethics, at all ranks.
And, without even knowing who the officer is, the high rank earns them scorn from you, regardless of their history, regardless of their courage and sacrifice, regardless of where they serve and in what position. Nice broad brush you have there.
Hmmm . . .is that you, Jane Fonda?
My post is plain in its meaning to those with the honor and good will to understand it.
No more from me to you. You are more than welcome to have the last word.
Since you invited;
a) No, it is clearly not,
b) You broadly impugned high ranking officers—not defining exactly who qualifies as “high” ranking—and were called on it. Instead of qualifying your remark, you hide behind the “everyone knows what I mean even though I didn’t say what I mean” defense.
Your apology is accepted.
Have a nice day.
