Skip to comments.Obama the Inchoate Kenyan
Posted on 05/21/2012 1:56:55 AM PDT by Kukai
It is reasonable to believe that someone attempted to commit fraud in a commercial context when Barack Obama's literary agency published that he was born in Kenya. The few known facts seem to provide enough to constitute probable cause to probe whether an unlawful act occurred. Regardless of whether this is probed at law, and depending on what other underlying facts may come to light, there appear to be troubling legal and moral issues involved.
The free market depends on honest quid pro quo. Fraud is generally defined as misrepresenting a material fact to induce another person to part with something of value.
The quid pro quo between private parties to a transaction need not be equal in the eyes of others, or government regulators, but just fair to the parties to the transaction.
It may be of more value to me than to others to acquire what you have or do, so that I may be willing to pay more than the market price. However, if you were to intentionally deceive me about your goods or services to lead me to believe that they have a higher value, you have committed a fraud.
There are mutual incentives for honesty in the free market, because once someone is exposed as dishonest, fewer if any people will transact business with that person. Just as mutual honesty is incentive to play fair in the free market, the free market is an incentive to mutual honesty.
The free market does not always result in honest transactions because people are not perfect. Penalties for fraud developed under the law to punish those who intentionally disrupt the integrity of honest transactions.

I notice you left out a reply to my point that discovery is the key. after full discovery, the public opinion game will likely change dramatically.
Did you notice that Hawaii is currently not complying with the AZ request for confirmation of Obama’s birth records?
“Obama’s book jacket is more parallel to Keebler’s claim that their cookies are made by elves”
SO what you are saying is that it all depends on what the meaning of OZ is.
I expect the results to be the same as in the Georgia hearings into Obama's eligibility to be on the ballot. Whether or not Obama's lawyers participate, and whether or not Hawaii complies with the AZ court's requests, nothing will happen. Do you expect the Obama Administration to enforce a request from AZ on this issue if Hawaii does not comply? Does AZ have any direct power to compel HI to comply? The best outlet for our energy is to defeat Obama at the polls and to defeat as many RINOs and then far left Dems as possible in the House and Senate races.
Yes, I expect our republic to follow its laws. If it does not then we no longer live in the Republic of our founders.
Don’t you expect our government to operate within the laws?
I want our government to operate within the law just as I want the Catholic Church to follow God's laws, but should we really expect that at all times in history? Our leaders are what the voters have chosen, and today's leaders are not even as good as the Popes of the late 1400s and early 1500s. The fact is that our leaders will not follow the law, nor will they enforce the law if that reduces their own personal power. I'm disappointed in our politicians, both for their corruption and for their failure even to be embarrassed by their lack of ethics, but I accept reality as it is. I also hope to see that reality change, to see America once again embrace integrity and morality.
In 1517, Martin Luthor indicted the Church with his 95 Theses, allegedly nailed to the door of the Castle Church in Wittenberg, Germany. While that action led to a schism and the formation of the Lutheran Church, I think it was also a major contributor to the Catholic Church's return to a more moral stance. America needs a Martin Luthor, soon, but until he appears I will only expect what experience has shown we should expect. In the case of the Democrats in the House and the Senate, that is a revolting level of partisanship and corruption. They will not enforce the law or the Constitution. We have to deal with that sad reality until we are able to expose it and change it.
You accept lawlessness of our government...Blah blah blah
Until someone *ELSE* holds government accountable...Blah blah blah
You are just one person, after all...Blah Blah Blah
Ok, thank you for your courageous leadership - NOT.
It starts with a plaintiff having standing. If nobody can/will stand up and declare "he did wrong and I was harmed", then the law cannot be challenged. (Hence a lot of the crap laws we live under: nobody wants to push back, lest the court rule to the contrary and it's reinforced.)
What is your solution, and how do we get from here to there? [Note: If your solution is for Pelosi and Reid to do their jobs, I will not be impressed.]
I am working full time on efforts that I believe will help conservatives to win their primaries against RINOs and efforts that will help conservatives to defeat liberals in the general election. You may not like what pollsters do, but honest polling does help in winning elections. Perhaps that's not courageous leadership, but I am one of the leading followers for several future leaders. What are you doing or advocating that others do that is more helpful than that?
I am sure you are doing the best you can. Thank you for your effort.
