Creating A Constitutional Crisis The Obama Way

When it first began it seemed nothing more than a trifling matter which was destined to be quashed in a few days never to be heard of again. Now, however, it has taken on a life of it’s own and is growing, it seems, exponentially each day.  The question of whether, or not, Mr. Obama is eligible to be President of the US is snowballing into what could become another constitutional crisis for the US 

We Americans are used to all sorts of questions being thrown around about our political candidates.  As a result, many of us are just yawning and looking away as a few hardheaded citizens demand that Mr. Obama, the “presumed” President-Elect, is asked about proof of his US citizenship.

The US Constitution, another inconvenient piece of US law, demands (Under Article Two, Section One) that one be a natural born citizen of the US to serve as it’s President.  Here are the exact words:  No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the age of thirty five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.”

OK, so why not put the rumors and, even worse, the bevy of lawsuits, to rest by simply producing proof of citizenship by showing the world a valid birth certificate?  See, that’s the part I cannot, for the life of me, understand!  This entire dustup could be resolved and the hounds nipping at the heels of the soon to be President brought to heel. I just DON’T GET IT!

 

OK, so what happens if it turns out that Mr. Obama is NOT a natural born citizen?  Well… we’d have a constitutional crisis … is what. That is the last thing we need at this moment in our history.

 

This issue needs to be settled before the oath of office.  It must be settled.  Can you even imagine the damage done should Mr. Obama assume the presidency only to be found out some time later to be, shall we say, less than qualified?  What about all the appointments he might make?  Every one of them would have to be recalled.  In the mean time, what do you do about all the decisions THEY might have made while holding their respective offices illegally?  They’d all have to be overturned.  And… who would be Commander-in-Chief of the US Armed Forces? What about all the executive orders he makes… and the Bills the Congress hands up to him for his signature making them the law of the land?  Would those laws not be null and void? Can you see the complications this could, and would, have on our nation?

 

There is an excellent article on this at The Bulletin.  It’s titled: “Obama Fomenting A Constitutional Crisis: Constitutional Lawyer Discusses Ramifications Of Controversy”.  You’ll find it at:

In case you haven’t heard it from the Mainstream Media, the Supreme Court Justices will meet Friday, December 5th and review a case, which challenges the eligibility of Mr. Obama to serve as this nation’s President.

 

Pennsylvania attorney Philip J. Berg has now filed an emergency motion for immediate injunction asking the courts to halt state certification of electors in order to stop the Electoral College from meeting on December 15th and casting their votes for Mr. Obama.  At the same time, Berg is seeking to stop the official vote count, which is scheduled for January 6th until the court decides on his appeal.  By the way, in case you are wondering… Mr. Berg is a democrat.

 

This issue is not going away until it is faced head on, by Obama, and put to rest by producing proof of his birth as an American citizen. Why drag this out?  Why not produce the document in question and let’s move on.

The US Constitution. The Deliberate Stumbling Block.

By: J. D. Longstreet

You know, every now and then, every American ought to read the US Constitution from beginning to end.  I’d wager that if we did, we would not be living in such a screwed-up country as we have today.

 

One of the things I have learned, over my better than 6 and a half decades on this earth, is that the fellows who wrote the Constitution were quite likely the smartest, most intelligent, men on the entire planet at that time… and… without a doubt… would rank at the top of the intelligentsia today!

 

Funny thing is that back in the 18th century, folks had a tendency to say what they meant and mean what they say.  They had never heard of political correctness, so… they called “a spade a spade”.   When they applied pen to paper, to write their thoughts, they didn’t hem and haw about… they wrote down those words, which illustrated, exactly, their thoughts and their intentions.

 

Now, here’s the thing:  When a person, of even average intelligence today, takes it upon himself, or herself, to read the US Constitution… as those Founding Fathers wrote it… they understand it!  It’s as clear as a bell.

 

Now the question:  Why, then, do we find it so inconvenient today?  Yes, the US Constitution is inconvenient.  To the power brokers in the US, the Constitution is a roadblock.  It is continually getting in the way.  And that is where the US Supreme Court comes in.

 

When an American turns to the Constitution, to learn the duties of the Supreme Court, often he, or she, is surprised at the limits on the Court.  More surprising, still, is the mantel of powers the Court has assumed which the Constitution does not grant the Court!

 

The national powerbrokers learned, long ago that a Supreme Court molded in their likeness, could extend THEIR powers simply by INTERPRETING the Constitution in a manner which would benefit them. To arrive at that beneficial arrangement, the powerbrokers had to see that they determined the make-up of the court… that only those nominees to the Court who favored their biases could be allowed on the court.  That set off a continuing battle between the two sides of the American Political Spectrum, which is near a fever pitch today. 

 

A fairly intelligent high school student can interpret the Constitution.  It is that clearly written.  Yet, today we require a court of nine persons made up of scholars of the law… even though the Constitution does not require one to be a lawyer to serve on the Supreme Court!  Did you know that?

 

Let me give you an example of how simple the Constitution is to interpret:  Article One, section 8 of the Constitution declares that the District of Columbia shall be no larger than ten square miles.  Got that?  Ok, then why, today, is the District of Columbia 98.25 square miles?  Huh?  Oh, you see the constitution was inconvenient when it came to that ten square mile law.

 

The point in all this rambling is… you really ought to acquaint yourself with the US Constitution. When you do, you are going to marvel at how far from the Constitution the US has strayed.

 

May we suggest that you set out to familiarize yourself with the Constitution while you can?  Already, our government is in talks with Mexico and Canada to merge the three countries into a single entity patterned after the European Union.  Once that happens, there is a better than even chance the US Constitution will become subject to whatever passes as a constitution for the North American Union.

Petition To Prove Obama’s Eligibility To Serve As President Of The US

By J. D. Longstreet

************************

There is a petition circulating right now, which calls for the public release of Obama’s real birth certificate in order to prove that he is, indeed, a natural born US citizen and eligible to serve as this country’s President. .

 

I know, I know.  There shouldn’t have to be such a thing.  You’d think that a person fully qualified to be President of the US, under the terms set forth in the Constitution, and other US laws, would be more than happy to lay it all out and squash these rather harsh accusations that claim he is not qualified.  Well, wouldn’t you?

 

But, for whatever reason, the Obama camp is doing everything in their power to stop the lawsuits, which number in the teens now, from making their way through the courts and eventually forcing him to hand over those documents and prove his eligibility to serve as POTUS.

 

There is a petition “demanding that the constitutional eligibility requirement of Obama be taken seriously and that any and all controlling legal authorities in this matter examine the complete birth certificate of Barack Obama, including the actual city and hospital of birth, and make that document available to the American people for inspection.”

 

You’ll find the petition at:

 

http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=81550

We urge you to go over to this site and at least inspect the very simple and easy to understand petition… and… if you feel it is important that only Americans serve as President of the country, then sign the petition. This needs to be done as quickly as possible.

 

It’s our country, as Americans, and we still have a few rights left… at least temporarily.  Let’s use them… before we lose them.
