Barack Obama Denied National Security Clearance Aug.20, 2008 in General Barack Obama cannot be Trusted with Classified Information
How can the President of the United States be denied a basic security clearance? How can the Commander and Chief of the most powerful military be denied access to classified information? Barack Obama would be denied the necessary security clearance for President if he was held to the same standard as everyone else. If you cant pass a Secret level background investigation, which is required for many soldiers, you should not be eligible for the Presidency.
What is a Security Clearance?
Having served in the U.S. military, law enforcement, and as a civilian government contractor, Ive had my fair share of background investigations. The United States government employs a multitier security clearance paradigm.
Confidential Unauthorized disclosure could cause damage to national security. Secret Unauthorized disclosure could cause serious damage to national security. Top Secret Unauthorized disclosure could cause exceptionally grave damage to national security.
Each level of access requires a progressively more in-depth background investigation before the clearance is obtained. The President of the United States should be able to flawlessly pass the most extensive investigation and a polygraph test. Both are required for workers in some Special Access Programs classified Top Secret.
The purpose of the clearance is to determine an individuals honesty, trustworthiness, reliability, financial responsibility, criminal activity, emotional stability, foreign influences, family associations, drug use, mental health, judicial proceedings, employment history, traits of character, and loyalty to the United States. This collective data is used to evaluate your ability and willingness to safeguard national secrets. Based on the facts about Barack Obama, he fails to satisfy the minimum requirements for even a basic secret clearance. His background investigation would have Red Flags shooting up in so many places; the issuing panel would deny him a clearance outright.
Obamas Answers on the Security Clearance Application Instead of going through all the Security Clearance Application questions, Ill examine the questions that would deny Barack Obama a Secret Clearance.
List foreign national relatives whom you or your spouse are bound by affection, obligation, or close and continuing contact.
Barack Hussein Obama, Sr. of Kenya, and Lolo Soetoro, the Indonesian oil manager his mother married. These two foreign relatives would probably initiate a Defensive Security Services or Department of Defense investigation that would take roughly a year to explore. Im not sure how many degrees of separation are involved, but Obama Sr. and Soetoros associations are not friendly to the United States. However, they are not the primary concern.
Barack Obamas brother, his kin Abongo Obama, is a militant Muslim who has been quoted saying, A black man must liberate himself from the poisons of European cultures and western values. Obamas paternal cousin, Raila Odinga is also a Muslim extremist who recently lost the Kenyan Presidential election to a Christian. How can such relations exist between the President of the United States and radical Muslims?
Have you ever been an officer or a member or made a contribution to an organization dedicated to the violent overthrow of the United States Government and which engages in illegal activities to that end, knowing that the organization engages in such activities with the specific intent to further such activities?
Have you ever knowingly engaged in any acts or activities designed to overthrow the United States Government by force?
These two questions go hand and hand. Having gone through the interview phase of the clearance process a number of times, I cant image the look on the face of the investigator nor the sheer amount of time it would take to explain Barack Obamas anti American ties.
Sen. Barack Obama served as a paid director alongside a confessed domestic terrorist and granted funding to a controversial Arab group that dubbed the creation of Israel as a catastrophe. The founder of the Arab group in question, Columbia University professor Rashid Khalidi, also has held a fundraiser for Obama. Khalidi is a harsh critic of Israel, has made statements supportive of Palestinian terror and reportedly has worked on behalf of the Palestine Liberation Organization while it was involved in anti western terrorism.
Barack Obama also served on the Woods Fund board with William Ayers, a member of the Weathermen terrorist group which sought to overthrow of the U.S. government and took responsibility for the bombings of New York City Police Headquarters in 1970, of the Capitol building in 1971, and the Pentagon in 1972. Bill Ayers has killed hundreds of civilians, police officers, and was recently quoted saying, I dont regret setting bombs, I feel we didnt do enough.
I would deny a security clearance for anybody that even shook these mens hands, never mind launching a campaign from Ayers living room.
Have you illegally used any controlled substance, for example, marijuana, cocaine, crack cocaine, hashish, narcotics (opium, morphine, codeine, heroin, etc.), amphetamines, depressants (barbiturates, methaqualone, tranquilizers, etc.), hallucinogenics (LSD, PCP, etc.), or prescription drugs?
Barack Obama has specifically admitted to using marijuana and cocaine in his book Dreams From My Father. He even confesses pursuing heroin, but was scared of the drug dealer. A clearance question such as this is used to test someones ethical fortitude to stand up for what is right, legally forbidden, and ultimately make correct decisions. Obama fails this test with his weakness to deny temptation.
Would anyone question your honesty?
Obamas lies regarding his recollection of policies supported and the reality of what he actually did endorse are too numerous to count. However, these lies are unfortunately common in todays politics. An article written in a conservative blog has outlined 26 more personal deceptions Obama has made to the American people. How can anyone trust this guy with confidence? cont.......
is this really true????
Thank you for the ping, Jet Jaguar.
Maybe they found out he is a Muslim. Or that he really isn’t a U.S. Citizen
Thanks for the ping.
This looks like a hypothetical exercise, i.e. what would happen IF Obama tried for a security clearance? From the article:
“Instead of going through all the Security Clearance Application questions, Ill examine the questions that would deny Barack Obama a Secret Clearance.”
If a majority number of voters elect someone to public office (despite their history, political stance or general proclivities that might offend the minority voters)
the people have spoken and nothing can stand in the way (constitutionally). ;-)
Since when did an empty headed teleprompter reading puppet need clearance?
Bookmark for later
You don’t need security clearance if you are president and wish to take away the security of our nation. See how long it takes him to downsize our military. There will be no security. You will have no way to protect yourself either because first he will take your guns away, then he will take our military away.
What source is there to demonstrate he was denied one?
I admitted to my trying marijuana when I was 20 years old (and yes, I told them that I inhaled), and I told them about my being busted as a drug importer (later cleared, correctly) while I was in the military, and I still received my C6, and then my T1 from DHS/ICE.
Al-Qaeda high-5ing each other and ROTFLTAO.
The Congress stands between the voice of the People and the Presidency. It can impeach and remove a president no matter what the People say or want.
Not before he is elected. ;-)
Yeah, but you are a real clean guy.
oh, i don’t quite believe he’s a muslim or terrorist. a sympathizing softcore marxist who think’s it’s best america gets knocked down a few pegs? absolutely.
If I remember right, didn’t the clintons go all eight years without getting the whitehouse staff checked out through normal channels? It seems like it was supposed to be done before they even started their jobs..but they never got around to it...
Besides, that would have little to do with his security clearance. Would take a majority of votes to accomplish the ouster after impeachment Clinton survived. Get this snot in office and only political bomb would get him out.
The requirements for President are defined by the Constitution: Age 35 or more, natural born US citizen; that's it.
Security clearances are agency requirements and cannot supersede the Constitution. It's up to the voters not to elect a Marxist to office, unless that's their choice.
