Media Blackout in Obama Georgia Ballot Eligibility Case
American Thinker ^ | January 30, 2012 | Cindy Simpson

Posted on 01/30/2012 2:08:32 AM PST by matt1

Last week, I noted that Obama turned his back not just on Arizona's Governor Jan Brewer, but also on the laws of the State of Georgia. I closed my column, "Georgia Ballot Challenge: Obama Walks on By," with the observation: "And most of the media has followed along right behind him."

At the time, I had just witnessed an historic hearing that actually discussed the eligibility of the sitting president of the United States to run for a second term. The president had been subpoenaed to appear, and instead of his attorney respectfully following protocol to have that subpoena recalled, both Obama and his attorney, Michael Jablonski, simply failed to show up at all or offer any defense whatsoever.

Isn't there a headline in there somewhere?

This issue has absolutely nothing to do with color or race or political affiliation. Those issues are distractions from the core issue. The core issue focuses on a key requirement of the United States Constitution and the eligibility of presidential candidates.

Nope The Illuminati was discredited as nonsense 100 years ago.

Waste of bandwidth to chase that.

And the Mason’s didn’t do it either. (been one since I was 21, 64 now.)

“It looks to me that neither Obama nor Mitt are NBCs. Why won’t Newt bring this issue up?”

Also, the msm has successfully been able to taint anyone who brings up Obama’s citizenship, so Newt would be labelled a ‘birther kook’ and the public would shy away from him.

There is a case made that Mitt’s grandfather became a Mexican citizen; therefore, Mitt’s father was a Mexican citizen at the time of birth. If that were the case, Mitt’s father would have to have been natutalized after coming to the US. No one seems to know the facts of the case. Everyone is assuming. No one has the proof; however, I can prove Newt is a NBC.

Nope, but he was behind the first attempt. Bombing the building.

No he wasn't. And even if he was, NOBODY could have possibility tied Bin Laden to 9/11 IMMEDIATELY after hearing an airplane flew into a building in New York.

I have a copy of what is about as close as you're going to get to the al Quaeda playbook.

I don't depend on premonitions. I depend on patterns. Patterns don't lie.

Anything you picked up on in late 2007 was simply part of what was plan B, which had been kicked off months earlier in mid 2007.

If you believe that no one could have linked Osama Bin Laden to 9/11/01 immediately after the plane crashes, you will be shocked and amazed to read this live FR thread from 9/11/01:

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/fr/520260/posts

Post 32 by Illbay at 8:00 a.m. on 9/11/01 nails it.

Then, on this thread: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/fr/520262/posts

Osama Bin Laden is mentioned shortly after the second plane crashes, just a little after 6:00 a.m. These threads (and there are more) were happening in real time on that day. If you haven’t seen them, enjoy! (Not sure that is the proper word, but they’re pretty enlightening and interesting.)

Post 32... lol. Well after the SECOND plane crash into the tower and the collapse of the first building. Like I said, NOBODY could have tied 9/11 to Bin Laden IMMEDIATELY after hearing that a plane crashed into a building in New York. It lacks credence.

At 6:15 a.m. on the second thread I posted Osama Bin Laden is first mentioned. No buildings had fallen and at that time no one knew what had really happened.

Also, interesting (I know, I’m getting off the subject), on one of the 9/11 threads there’s a link to a post made by a Freeper of a week before 9/11 who mentioned a dream he had of planes flying into buildings, it was truly eerie. I think it was a Freeper with a name something like JohnAdams.

Here also, the SECOND plane had already hit. We're talking about someone claiming it was Bin Laden IMMEDIATELY after hearing that a plane crashed into a building in New York.

“You're entertaining. Do you do birthday parties? “

That was unnecessary, and anyway, I don't think you have any right to pronounce what any one individual thinks about 9/11 in real time, including an opinion that OBL was behind it. I remember EXACTLY where I was and doing and how, to me the entire event was simply unbelievable.

Yes, it does have to do, indirectly, with race. If this were a white RAT instead of a black one, the issue would be front burner in the U.S. House, Senate and the courts and media as well. It is only because of the fear of being called a racist that the R’s and courts will not touch the issue.

Deleted your FReepmail and have already forgotten your name and number. Calls to coached family members does not appeal to me.

Look at it from my point of view (that of a reasonable person). The last time Bin Laden killed was August, 1998. I too, saw the burning tower before the second plane hit. For me, or anyone, to immediately link it to Bin Laden would have been an incredible stretch of the imagination. He had been out of the news for three years. And not since WWII had anybody ever used a plane as a suicide weapon.

Now, after the second plane hit, you could not deny that the first plane was an accident. And speculation could start. But to say so before the second plane....no.

“And he will give old men the gift of prophecy...”

Sorry if you aren’t that old! My wife was on the committee to elect a senior pastor with much prayer, etc. They had it down to three guys, and she kept asking/praying which one should it be.

One morning she actually heard that “still small voice” in answer: “You’ll know.”

Not exactly the answer she was looking for! But, it did give her assurance and peace of mind. Pay heed to yours.

TCM is right. Texas Fossil deserves an apology. You do not call a man a liar when you have no direct knowledge of his character. You may have trouble believing him, but that does not make him a liar. Calling someone a liar is no small accusation. I do not think FR is the kind of site which supports this kind of behavior. Consider reading Rev. 21:8 and think of what you have said about Texas Fossil. Words matter.

Lets just leave it alone.

There is nothing I can do to change what he thinks. The last thing we need on FR is another division. We have enough serious work to do for something like this to ruin someone’s day.

I have written of this event before on FR. And it happened exactly as I described. I have pretty wide interests, the original trade center attack was one of them. A lot was written between the events and there was a clear connection in the minds of many people with the perps of the first. I was conscious of the details largely because I despised Slick Willie so much. As a consequence I delved into that and the OKC bombings. He played both events to his advantage.

We had a presidential election during the Civil War. I have heard various friends and family say that Clinton and Bush would cancel the election. I doubt Obama will, but would not be completely shocked if he did, contrary to the former POTUSes.

The federal government has no power to order the cancellation of elections, which are under the control of individual states.

If you’re going to attempt to pin the blame for 9-11 on anyone, the logical person would be Tom Clancey and his book “Debt of Honor” which was published in 1994.

Clancey described exactly what would happen if a passenger jet was used to hit the Capitol Building.

At the time I suggested the Government pay Clancy large sums of money to stop publishing. His books were scary accurate predictions/blueprints.

Maybe some of the passengers on Flight #93 read Debt of Honor.

1994 was three years after 1991.

I hate to point this out to you, but there is also an order of magnitude between describing something theoretically in a book, and demonstrating the same thing over and over on a battlefield.

The latter gets a whole lot more people’s attention, and is imposible to deny.

I used to get irritated with people calling 9/11 and inside job, referring to George W. Bush. However, if you think of Slick Willie instead, then it easily could have been. There was a series of terrorist attacks on the U.S, during his tenure including the Murrah Bldg in OKC and TWA flight 800 as well as the first WTC, the embassies in Africa, the USS Cole, etc., and Slick did nothing. He had the opportunity to get Bin Laden himself but conveniently was unavailable to give the go ahead. He also turned down Sudan’s offer to turn him over. It would be easy for Bin Laden to interpret all that as a go ahead himself.

Slick has never, to my knowledge, been called to answer for himself on all that.

I’m missing something. What happened in 1991? I mean, specifically in relation to this topic.

The point I was making in my post is that what Clancy described in 1994 was very close to what actually came to pass on Sept. 11, 2001.

I am not going to allege that the Jihadi’s got the idea from the book, but it’s certainly not impossible. And, as Tex pointed out, it’s also possible that some of the passengers on Flight 93 had read the same book, realized what was happening, and died preventing it.

When you responded to my post you had read what happened in 1990 and 1991. It just may not have dawned on you what I was saying.

During the 1990 - 1991 war
the US dropped many, sorties of fuel air explosives on the Iraqi lines and positions. Unlike other munitions that work using explosives that are complex and difficult to synthesize, FAE are simply a big container of jet fuel under pressure being pumped out through nozzles as it nears the ground. When it gets to ground zero, it ignites the huge area of fuel vapor that has been created.

The larger ones evidently put out a shock wave similar to the Hiroshima bomb, though with less heat and with none of the radiation.

The possibilities of large planes carrying jet fuel became impossible to ignore.

Slick Willie was using the first 2 you mentioned to go after the Patriot Movement. TWA 800 he could not allow to be solved because he would be blamed, WTC is similar It highlighted his dereliction of duty, the Embasies in Africa and the USS Cole simply would have exposed his ineptness.

But yes all were on his watch. His handlers knew how to dodge the responsibility. Just like they dodged exposure of his involvement in the Contra Support (for money). Happened. (note- I was a strong supporter of the Contra Effort and felt the Bolen Amendment was treasonous.)

G H W Bush knows Bill Clinton very well. The other players in that episode were Seth Ward, the Mc Dougals, Vince Foster, Web Hubble. And a cast of others.

Then we must not forget Slick’s Serbia/Bosnia Wag the Dog.

All the while he was afraid to offend the Muzzies.

And Yes I loathed Slick Willie and Der Hilderbeast.
