QUOTE: "The political elite and the MSM are doing everything possible to suppress discussion of Obamas ineligibility, pretend that we are not in a Constitutional crisis and allow him to contest the 2012 election"...... This sentence is an outright lie.

This sentence is an outright lie. The fact is the MSM...(and this means ESPECIALLY the more leftist of the MSM), gives regular play to the birther nonsense. It is a simple fact, and one easily proved by a search of the last 6 months news, that the birther silliness is brought up 10 times by the left for every one it is broached by anyone else in the MSM.
The left created this issue (Hilary Clintons people); and the left uses it to make the right look stupid. They know we can never ever win on this issue.
Pursuit of this issue is a pointless waste of time and energy. Just consider for a moment what it would take to PROVE he was not born here. Because he does not have to prove he was...no no no,the accusers have to prove he was not. What possible evidence could you imagine would ever be so sound, so incontrovertible, that it could not be ripped apart in court. Even if you won it would take a decade with all the appeals.
I challenge every person who is wound up about this to sit down with a good lawyer or law prof. Ask them what it would take to win this. *IF* you do this you'll soon realize that your time would be spent just as well by bashing your forehead into a brick wall.
There are two groups that bring up this silliness over and over; The leftists who dangle it as proof that the right are loons, And the those on the right who are so very obsessed with it they won't take the time to examine the utter futility of it. Not only has their usefulness in dragging us away from the socialist abyss been neutralized, but they are actually helping the enemies of our nation.
We need every sound thinker to stay focused on stopping the marxist agenda being foisted on us. The ship of state is sinking. Every man needs to bail and repair. EVERYONE needs to grasp the fact that there are far more important things to do now than examine the Captains papers. If you want to do that when we drop his ass off on shore fine! Shouting about this might make you feel like you are accomplishing something or standing up for principle. But right now it's as worthwhile an activity as straightening the deck chairs as the Titanic sinks.
There are dozens and dozens of things the people all around us don't know. Glenn Beck made huge inroads by breaking things down for the busy common man and he changed the minds of many. But many more won't go near his stuff because of the leftist stigma. So it's up to us. Get on DIGG, and REDDIT, and PuffyHo and every other MSM site and break down the lies for the mentally challenged leftists who dwell there.. Show the absurdity and destructiveness off BO's policies.
Have you seen the "Immigration gumball" video? Have you seen the penny guy's videos on the stimulus and deficits and health care? (Links below)
These leave leftist speechless. We need to lead the blind, deaf, and really dumb to the pools of healing so they can see the immutable facts. Hurling speculations about his eligibility makes of look silly and weak and leaves us at the mercy of the left.
GOD bless you,

So my 29 year old child doesn't have to prove he's qualified to be president? Someone has to prove he isn't?
So if I want to obtain a license to practice medicine or law or some such, I don't have to prove I'm qualified, someone has to prove I am not?
Does it work that way with everything?
Let’s have a gander at his school registration documents, I mean those Obama spent so many taxpayer dollars hiding. If he didn’t register as a Foreign National, that might be pretty convincing for me.
With respect: You are framing the issue improperly.
Your are correct: In the context you describe (i.e., in something like a "court of law"), it would indeed be impossible to "win," since Obama could simply remain silent, while we would have to supply evidence proving that he was NOT a native-born citizen.
It is not possible to proof a negative.
In the realm of public opinion, however, it would be all means possible to "win" our case - by applying so much public pressure and by subjecting Obama to so much public ridicule and embarrassment that he would not only have to explicitly deny the allegation, but also to explain WHY he cannot/will not produce the requisite Long-Form Certificate of Live Birth, WHETHER he ever held a different nationality (e.g., British, through his father; Indonesian, through his step-father) or used a foreign passport, etc.
So the Constitution is a waste of time to you?
The fact is that the MSM, the Courts and the two political parties are doing everything they can to avoid dealing with the....
Constitution of the United States.
This is nothing new. They have been tramplng all over the Constitution since the beginning of the Progressive movement.
If you want to push an anti-Constitution agenda then you came to wrong place.
The Progressive movement is pushing for open borders, weakened definitions of citizenship, a destruction of the Electoral College, and the redefinition of the Constitution clause for Presidential eligibility and yet you claim that it is a non-issue.
Our Constitution and the rule of law demands than I pay attention to this matter.
Without the Constitution and without the rule of law NOTHING else matters.
They're coming out of the woodwork this weekend. Check this guy's posting history. What made him pop up now?
Oh and add to the list above that the Progressive movement also seeks to ignore laws like the Logan Act thus producing another level of foreign collusion for politicians who seek to be Commander in Chief.
Obama not only had dual citizenship at birth but also clearly demonstrated it alldiences to Kenya by illegally violating the Logan Act and campaigning in Kenya for someone closely related to him.
Yet the MSM and both political parties have given cover to those who violate this law. Now the democrats have run two Presidential candidates in a row who blatantly violated this law and showed foreign allegiances.
Yet to you all of this is a non-issue. Pathetic.
“This sentence is an outright lie.”
No it is not.
“The fact is the MSM...(and this means ESPECIALLY the more leftist of the MSM), gives regular play to the birther nonsense. It is a simple fact, and one easily proved by a search of the last 6 months news, that the birther silliness is brought up 10 times by the left for every one it is broached by anyone else in the MSM.”
This is not a fact. It is incoherent rubbish. Who the hell is “anyone else in the MSM?” They’re all Democrats or RINOS. And if you think the Constitution is “silliness” then I wonder what you’re doing posting on Free Republic. That the President of this country is probably not Constitutionally eligible should be a matter of great concern to every true patriot.
“The left created this issue (Hilary Clintons people); and the left uses it to make the right look stupid.”
We are not “looking stupid”, and we have never looked stupid. This is a myth generated by the Democrats and anyone with a lick of sense doesn’t buy into it.
“they are actually helping the enemies of our nation.”
Nope, that’s you, white-anting the constitution and the resolve of patriots who will not stand for a fake President with divided loyalties. I detest your weak submission to the myths of the left wing, and I don’t like Beck for the same reason. You take whatever path you choose, but Obama’s constitutional eligibility is not “silliness” and we will win. With your help or without it.
And don’t call me a damn “birther”. Its an offensive term designed to bracket me with the loons who think 9/11 was an inside job, and I object strongly to such an association.
The requirement of natural-born citizenship of a U.S. President was a crucial point from the founding of this nation and still is. It is because of the unique founding principles of the United States which were unprecedented in history.
Foreigners don't stow away in cargo containers or float to our shores on rubber inner tubes because America is nothing special.
Foreigners don't clamor for green card alien status in the U.S. because we are just another option for a place to live.
This country is a one-of-a-kind refuge for liberty and economic opportunity the likes of which the world has never before seen.
Nothing will undermine the unique character of this country faster than a foreigner bringing the failed ideologies of other countries into this country to impose upon us and gaining power to impose those foreign failures upon us.
This country was not broken so it doesn't need to be "fixed" to conform to the tyrannies found elsewhere.
You are actually making that very argument.
It is not a waste of time to demand proof of citizenship from Obama. If this point is conceded, it will never again be a valid issue to raise against any candidate for the presidency.
It is a requirement of the constitution and we are supposed to be a "nation of laws, not of men."
You are wrong on this.
This goes to the heart of our fate being guided by law and not by the emotion of the moment and the popularity of any given "silver-tongued devil" politician whose skill in deceit might manipulate the citizens to ignore the laws under which this country has been guided successfully for so long.
This is more of a melt down situation occurring presently.
It is so cool, I want to take the day off to watch it on the net; But will go in and watch people fall apart in real time.
I love the twentysomething college kids.
The chair is not my son.
I disagree. Having a president in office who has violated the United States Constitution seems like a big deal to me. His long form BC would go a long ways toward settling the matter. Why won’t he show it? Simple question.
there is nothing nonsense about it
Whereas John Sidney McCain, III, was born to American citizens on an American military base in the Panama Canal Zone in 1936: Now, therefore, be it Resolved, That John Sidney McCain, III, is a natural born Citizen under Article II, Section 1, of the Constitution of the United States.
I was born in the Canal Zone and continue to live in the Republic of Panama. McCain was born in the city of Colon, Republic of Panama, as was Juan Williams. This makes McCain a Panamanian citizen.
McCain The Liar claims he was born in Coco Solo, a Naval base.
Even that birth paper that the Canal Zone gave McCain states very clearly he was born in Colon, Republic of Panama.
Reading seems to be a problem with people.
If anyone of you still has a copy of it, look for yourselves.
The loons are the anti birthers who think requiring obama to provide a simple thing like a long form birth certificate is looney.
All those "stupid" people tsk tsk tsk...
No one is above the law! It is time for 0bama to man up and show a birth document that would be admissible in a court of law.
Name the birth parents, the hospital and the doctor!
” Hurling speculations about his eligibility makes us look silly.............. “ ============================
Hurl away folks. Here’s why: Obama doesn’t like it; the issue is putting Obama in a box; the issue is driving them all nuts; OBAMA FEARS THAT THE SIMPLICITY OF THE QUESTION COULD BE HIS UNDOING; it’s all just now beginning to resonate broadly (no time to quit); Obama has to spend time & money & resources refuting the question, since he won’t produce his eligibility document; and he is hanging himself in the process.
W R O N G !
Twentieth amendment, section three CLEARLY states the opposite:
3. If, at the time fixed for the beginning of the term of the President, the President elect shall have died, the Vice President elect shall become President. If a President shall not have been chosen before the time fixed for the beginning of his term, or if the President elect shall have failed to qualify, then the Vice President elect shall act as President until a President shall have qualified; and the Congress may by law provide for the case wherein neither a President elect nor a Vice President elect shall have qualified, declaring who shall then act as President, or the manner in which one who is to act shall be selected, and such person shall act accordingly until a President or Vice President shall have qualified.
The term "the President elect shall have failed" refers to an action by the President elect. In this case, it is "qualified" as in proving to Congress that you meet the eligibility requirements set forth in Article two to serve as President. If you "fail" to qualify, Congress is responsible for naming a replacement if the vice president-elect "fails" to qualify. This means that Congress must be aware of whether or not a President elect "qualifies" or not. If they do not know, then this "qualification" did not occur. If it did not occur, the President elect has "failed to qualify" and we currently do not have a legal President, but a usurpation.
Why do people keep criticizing Obama for being a marxist, as if something is wrong with being a marxist.
On the contrary, I believe that legendary comedic genius Groucho Marx and his very funny brothers would be most proud to hear that Obama was a marxist like them.
What is the name of the funny Marx brother who never speaks, is it Harpo? Now if Obama would follow the silent example of Harpo, then Obama would really be doing a good thing.
Every member of the Supreme Court, every member
of congress, every member of the Joint Chiefs, most members of the DOD, CIA, FBI, Secret Service and
state run media, ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, PBS, NPR, MSNBC, Fox and print news, knows that Barack Hussein Obama
does NOT meet Article II Section I constitutional requirements for the office he holds. By his own biography, there is NO way he can pass the test. The hard evidence is so far beyond overwhelming, it is ridiculous.
But not ONE member of Americas most powerful people will dare confront Obama and his anti-American cabal
on the subject. The Constitution does NOT stand.
Half of the people you expect to stop this insanity
are quiet co-conspirators in the silent coup.
The other half is paralyzed by fear, motivated
only by political self-preservation.
Americans keep asking what they can do because
they see that none of their leaders are doing
anything to stop the demise of their beloved country. Its the right question, because those leaders
are NOT going to stop this thing.
Canada Free Press is exactly right.
They are afraid or are co-conspirators
The Constitution does NOT stand
We, the people will NOT let this go.
Quite probably so.
Got a live one here - see posting history.
RED ALERT!!! RED ALERT!!! RED ALERT!!!
ALL FReepers must immediately STOP and DESIST from all activity meant to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States.
This thread serves as a warning!!!!
Constitutional issues dealing with Presidential eligibility will NOT be tolerated!!!!
Please FReepers tune in to your favorite MSM channel for instructions on how to view the Birthers and to ridicule them and also on how to ridicule ALL Constitutional issues.
Because the MSM has completely covered this issue and resolved it already. -BARF-
And please continue to support the two main political parties and the Federal government that rule over you.
This is you TAX dollars at work!!!! No STANDING in Courts, no representation on issue by the Congress, no real coverage by the media and just be told to Shut up and respect the illegal President!
FREE THE LONG-FORM!!!!!
To prevent duplication, please do not alter the published title. Thanks.
You’re nuts! Regular play??????????????? The lamestream media mocks the birther issue, makes fun of anyone who raises it. The goal is to make the Tea Party look like idiots. If you’re defending the MSM here, you sir are a traitor to America!
I suppose if you dont stand on integrity, the Constitution, and what this country was founded on, that whole diatribe makes sense.
Not only is your post full of nonsense, it is unreadable. I managed a couple of lines before my eyes started crossing.
Hurling speculations about his eligibility makes of look silly and weak and leaves us at the mercy of the left.
Do you make this stuff up on your own, or are you a hireling?
I think the article makes the primary point clearly.
Forget the birth certificate. The Certificate of Live Birth that has been posted online is adequate. We’ve already got enough information to impeach.
Obummer had ONE American parent, not two. The formal definition of “natural born citizen” has never been officially recognized, but everybody seems to know that it means (a) born on American soil and (b) to parents who are BOTH citizens of the United States.
Case close. The bum is not natural born and must be impeached. NOW!
And that’s the problem. Nobody is lifting a finger to throw his arse out of the White House before he drains us dry. Yes, there would be riots. Yes, there would be chaos while we reverse and repeal everything he ever signed. Yes, Col. Lakin would get out of Leavenworth early. But it needs to be done. NOW!
For those who do not believe that it is easy to maintain a conspiracy of inaction and silence - please, please remember Watergate. If you are not familiar with the details of Watergate please learn them. Study them. Understand them and look for the parallels to today.
Remember that G Gordon Liddy directly told Attorney General Kleindienst that the White House was involved with the break-ins the day after it happened!
In June 1972 the highest ranking law enforcement officer KNEW that his boss and his staff were coordinating a criminal conspiracy from within the White House. Yet it took two years to bring out the truth. About a year of hard nosed journalism and about a year of the political machine finally doing its thing when it could not ignore the facts.
So you have historical proof and example of how those in power can ignore things as long as the noise is low and the papers and media stay away.
“The day after the break-in, Kleindienst was told by G. Gordon Liddy that the operation had originated in the White House and that he should arrange the release of the burglars. Kleindienst refused to free the men, but failed to report Liddy’s confession. “
And they hated Nixon...and it still took two years.
If hearings are not underway by November then this issue dies during the election cycle.
It is too bad Mr. Trump and posters here have to do the media’s work.
Maybe when Katie leaves CBS she should try being a real reporter. Or maybe she will fake an LFBC for Obama. It seems the thing the anchors do when the leave CBS.
Proof of eligibility FROM Obama was due in 2008. It was waived. So now proof is demanded from those who maintain he isn't.
E.G. Obama had to present proof of eligibility before he was admitted to the Bar of the State of Illinois. Once admitted, the Bar later had to present proof that he had lied in that presentation. The State Bar has a process for handling those who are wrongly admitted, and an entire of range of disciplinary measures and sanctions. The Federal Government apparently does not.
Yep...looks pretty full to me.
They've been coming out in droves the past couple of days, haven't they?
That ZOT button is getting a workout.
The Constitution says flat out POTUSA must be a natural born citizen. I don’t see that in an honest unbiased( many judges do not meet this standard) that the burden of establishing such is any less on the nominee than on the general public.Indeed common sense says the person seeking the office is more obligated than any voter to make the proof to establish eligibility for public acceptance. Though it is argued that the Constitution does not explicitly define a natural born citizen that argument does not deal with the the stack of documentation that was available and used when the Founding Fathers embedded the the explicit requirement into the Constitution. Obama is not the first person who used trickery to circumvent the fidelity of the Constitution. This just shows how difficult it is to make an ‘ironclad’ contract/regulation/law immune from shysters and usurpers.
The article, in and of itself, is pretty good IMO. I can understand why keeping it quiet would be desired.
We tried and hanged people at Nuremberg for following illegitimate orders.
The UCMJ forbids us from following orders which are “improper,” or from an illegitimate source.
I have been running ragged the last few days and will admit I didn’t read the whole thing. I will now and report back. The lack of formatting in the beginning set me off, eyes aren’t what they used to be.
