An investigative report detailing the Obama eligibility controversy

Canada Free Press

I cannot think of any other subject in recent American history that has been so mired in controversy, so factually misrepresented, mischaracterized and so misunderstood than the matter of the eligibility of Barack Hussein OBAMA II to hold the office of President of the United States. Despite its importance, the topic has been summarily dismissed as fodder for conspiracy theorists by many, while others insist that the question of OBAMA’s citizenship has been “asked and answered.” But has it really been answered, and if not, why not?

In consideration of the controversy that continues to plague Barack Hussein OBAMA over his citizenship status and his well documented sustained pattern of refusal to provide authenticated documentation of his birth records and numerous other pertinent records, I’ve conducted an in-depth investigation into the matter in an effort to separate fact from fiction, myth from reality. My approach was the same I’ve used as an investigator over the last 25 years on behalf of Fortune 100 companies in their selection of corporate executives, conducting due diligence background investigations. In this case, however, I was not afforded direct and unfettered access to the “applicant’s”, or in this case, OBAMA’s original records. Nonetheless, I conducted inquiries and a lengthy investigation researching the information directly or indirectly disclosed by OBAMA, as well as collections of documents, court records, official federal and state documents, verbal statements, utterances and other documents determined to be of authentic provenance.

At issue is whether Barack Hussein OBAMA or any of his representatives have furnished sufficient documentation to prove his eligibility for the office of President of the United States under Article II, Section I of the U.S. Constitution that states: “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.”
Presently, OBAMA occupies the White House as the Chief Executive Officer of the United States of America. As president, he is the commander-in-chief of our armed forces and ultimately responsible for the security of the United States. Any person of reasonable sensibilities would logically believe that his eligibility status has long been established by the Federal Election Commission (FEC) or those in positions of oversight for such matters. But has it?

In order to be as comprehensive as possible, my investigative findings include important background information into the legal definition of a “natural born citizen” as applicable to Article II of the U.S. Constitution. This background information is provided to clear up many common misconceptions about the eligibility controversy, and to explain why so many people are confused and easily misled over this issue. After thoroughly investigating this matter, I have found demonstrable evidence that this confusion is a deliberate and highly effective tactic used to divert attention from a constitutional issue and thus, the rule of law, to the detriment of American citizens.

This report will also provide insight into the reasons for the largely ignored yet unprecedented legal fight by Barack Hussein OBAMA II, his representatives and assigns, against any release of the authenticated copy of his long form birth certificate and a multitude of other relevant historical documents.

Obama’s credibility crisis

Washington Examiner

Hard on the heels of that shocking Pew Research Center survey finding that four out of five Americans don’t trust government comes a blitz of new revelations about the Obama administration that amount to a full-fledged credibility crisis. The latest disclosures are especially damaging because they concern President Obama’s possible misrepresentation of his relationships with former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich and convicted felon Tony Rezko, his administration’s misleading statements about Obamacare costs, and questions about improper manipulation of government-owned General Motors and the Securities and Exchange Commission.

The Blagojevich revelations were no less serious for being accidental. Blagojevich’s defense attorneys filed a federal court motion to subpoena Obama concerning charges that the former governor tried to sell the U.S. Senate seat formerly occupied by the chief executive. Improper formatting of the heavily redacted public version of the motion contained evidence that Obama spoke to Blagojevich about the Senate appointment a week before telling White House reporters that he had not done so. The document also revealed that federal prosecutors are withholding from Blagojevich’s attorneys documents describing what Obama told investigators about conversations with Rezko on the appointment or his financial ties to the Chicago developer who was one of his key fundraisers.

On Obamacare, the president and his appointees said repeatedly over the last year that it would reduce government health care spending. Yet now comes Kathleen Sebelius, Obama’s Department of Health and Human Services secretary, confessing that “We don’t know how much it’s going to cost.” Why is Sebelius only now saying this when her own department just made public a report obviously months in preparation that projected government health care costs overall will go up, not down? That same HHS report also said Obamacare’s Medicare cuts could put 15 percent of all hospitals out of business, making treatment harder to get and more expensive, especially for seniors.

Finally, General Motors claimed in national advertisements this week that it repaid its Troubled Asset Relief Program loans, plus interest, five years early. But the TARP inspector general said GM used other TARP funds to repay its original TARP loans, so the ads were fundamentally dishonest. Recall here that White House adviser Carol Browner told GM and other automakers to “write nothing down” about their dealings last year with administration officials on fuel economy standards. So it seems entirely appropriate to ask if GM’s repayment claims were “suggested” by somebody in the Obama White House. That would be the same White House that is also now suspected of improperly influencing the SEC to file fraud charges against Goldman Sachs just as Congress debates Obama’s financial reform proposal. As the Obama administration will learn, plummeting public trust eats away at the fundamental credibility of government and undermines its ability to carry out even its most basic duties.

HHS Reveals ObamaCare Won’t Cut Costs

Surprise! The cost controls in the bill won’t really control costs:

Economic experts at the Health and Human Services Department concluded in a report issued Thursday that the health care remake will achieve Obama’s aim of expanding health insurance — adding 34 million to the coverage rolls.

But the analysis also found that the law falls short of the president’s twin goal of controlling runaway costs, raising projected spending by about 1 percent over 10 years. That increase could get bigger, since Medicare cuts in the law may be unrealistic and unsustainable, the report warned.

It’s a worrisome assessment for Democrats.

Obama’s Next Threat: Shoving Illegals’ Amnesty down American’s Throats

Canada Free Press

Ripe and ready from his ObamaCare “win”, the dictator’s next step is to ensure the Marxist-Democrats are never again driven from power.  How?  Obama will shove—just as he did with his ObamaCare Death Plan—Amnesty for Illegals down our throats and create a new voting bloc for Obama and his Stormtroopers.

The Obama has learned that it’s VERY easy to get everything he wants, as long as he ignores and bypasses the will of We-the-People.  And ignoring the “governed” IS easy.  By overwhelming margins, the American people said “NO!” to ObamaCare.  But, Obama wanted it so he and the Marxists passed it, anyway.  Then, he dusted off his hands, smiled and said “Next.”

“Next” is Amnesty and then he will destroy our ability to pay for electricity with his Cap and Trade—or more realistically Cap ‘N HUGE Tax.

Note:  It’s simple for tyrants to get all they can seize and steal by simply ignoring the victims of their thefts.  That is the despot’s way and certainly has proved to be the Obama Way.

Last week, in defense of her State, Arizona Governor Jan Brewer signed into law a bill that will make it a crime to be in the USA illegally.  By the way, there have been US laws on the books for years that already make it a crime to be in the country illegally.  But, our federal government law makers and law enforcers—some for financial purposes and many for political gain—have given illegals a wink and a nod and allowed them into the country.  Instead of protecting the people of the United States of America—which is primary job of the US federal government—the US government now protects illegal visitors it can use to its own personal advantage.

The result of this errant and unconscionable behavior is that We-the-People have to pay and suffer illegals’ ongoing medical treatment and all other social services afforded to non-US citizens (which today comprises MORE services than are available for and to legal citizens), death to US citizens from illegal criminals and the bankrupting of the States (which means us) by illegals with the tacit approval of the Federal government ruling class.  Never, however, has it been so blatant as it is now with the Usurper and Dictator-in-Chief Barack Hussein Obama.  After all, he has already been allowed to get away with the greatest theft in history (think “bail out” and “stimulus”) and is in the process of nationalizing and getting kickbacks from any and all industries he wants.  Now, he is being permitted to pass laws that are in direct opposition to the will of legal American voters.  Still wonder why he keeps smiling as he continues to burn the USA to the ground?

Arizona has been one of the states hardest hit by illegal aliens entering the USA unfettered.  It has also become the kidnap capitol—abductions by the Mexican drug cartels—of the USA and was on its way to be the world’s.  Now, the federal government—under Obama’s direction—is launching an all-out assault on Arizona—to make it an “example” so that other States do not defy the dictator.  Obama said that the new Arizona law will “threaten to undermine basic notions of fairness that we cherish as Americans, as well as the trust between police and their communities that is so crucial to keeping us safe.”  Suffice it to say, this statement is a patent “crock.”  In reality, the Arizona anti-criminal law is designed to protect legal US citizens and be fair and equitable to them!  But, protecting US citizens has been neither the plan nor the mission of the Obama regime.  Instead, the destruction of said citizens and their country is.

And as another strong example, bill H.R. 4173 which is being readied to be voted on by the Senate (suffice it to say it has already passed the Communist-controlled-and-run House of Representatives) will give The Obama the unprecedented power to—at his will—determine which financial organizations will be allowed to continue and which ones will not.  If said businesses don’t ‘play ball’ with the tyrant, will they be in business for much longer?  Before you answer, remember that Obama is being allowed to get away with any unconstitutional thefts, destruction of US freedoms, new land and water grabs and anything else he wants.  No one has stopped him, yet.  We have witnessed the Birth of Tyranny in the USA and it is a huge and horrible child.

Obama and his minions are now going after individual States, in order to nullify their sovereignty and State’s rights as afforded by the US Constitution.  Oh, yeah, I forgot.  With his actions, Obama has also nullified the US Constitution.  That’s what Tyranny is all about folks.  One has NO rights save those the tyrant is willing to bestow upon them.  You ask “what about our inalienable rights?”  Those were bestowed by God.  And Obama is now working to usurp that position, too.

About that birth certificate (which Obama refuses to produce)

One of the most ingenious things the Obama campaign did in 2008 was to nullify all questions about why he refused to produce his birth certificate, by stoking the “birther” conspiracy that he was not born in the United States and, thus, painting anyone who talked about his birth certificate as insane.

It’s classic magic trick distraction.

Whenever anyone questions why the current President of the United States refuses to release his original birth certificate, his followers immediately launch into an Alinsky-based attack on the person who brought the matter up — attacking that person as a “birther”.

This is a remarkably effective trick, because no one ever sees the REAL reason he does not want his birth certificate released. The “birther” screaming and yelling keeps attention focused away from what his original birth certificate would reveal about his father, Barack Hussein Obama Sr.

Cap-and-Trade Treason

Capitol Hill Coffee House

If you thought that the way the Obama administration and its cohort of Democrats in Congress rammed through the takeover of the nation’s healthcare system was appalling, prepare to watch the same process applied to Cap-and-Trade. Your government no longer represents you, the voter, the citizen.

Cap-and-Trade (H.R. 2454) allegedly is about reducing greenhouse gas emissions, but there is no scientific justification for this because there is no “global warming” that requires it, nor is manmade, anthropogenic, generation of carbon dioxide (CO2) a threat to the planet. Just the opposite, everything dies without it; all vegetation and all animal life. Life on Earth would thrive if there was even more CO2.
To what end would Congress impose such emission limits when they do not exist throughout China, India, third world “developing” nations, and are being abandoned by European Union nations where the Kyoto Protocol limits have harmed their economies?
Global warming has been exposed as a massive hoax and fraud. Why would the United States Senate proceed to enact a bill based on it? In essence, it will make some corporations, utilities, and people very rich and impoverish the rest of us.
Having passed the House, on Monday, April 26, the Senate will be handed a huge bill that, like healthcare, few will have read before they vote. It will impose the largest tax the nation has ever seen.
The act will bless the various “exchanges” created for the sale and trade of “carbon credits” that have no value whatever. It creates a bubble comparable to the sub-prime mortgage debacle that triggered the 2008 financial crisis and resulting recession.
The amount of CO2 will not be reduced because the Earth produces 97% of all the CO2 in the atmosphere. Even then, that amount is the smallest part of the atmosphere that consists of more than 95 percent water vapor!
Cap-and-Trade is an act of betrayal because it will destroy the U.S. economy, destroy jobs, and further impoverish Americans in a variety of ways.
The Cap-and-Trade Act that has already passed the House will be put in play by Senators John Kerry, Lindsey Graham, and Joseph Lieberman. It was created in the House by Rep. Henry Waxman and Rep. Edward Markey. They know the bill will set in motion the destruction of the nation whose life’s blood is affordable and abundant energy use.
Just as the Obama administration moved swiftly to acquire ownership of General Motors and Chrysler, to take over insurance giant AIG, control one sixth of the nation’s economy through the healthcare act, and is now seeking to expand the regulation of Wall Street, Cap-and-Trade will ensure the destruction of the nation as manufacturing flees to other parts of the world.
Beginning one year after enactment, homeowners will not be able to sell their homes without complying with onerous and unnecessary energy and water “efficiency” standards. These standards, moreover, will increase annually. Within five years, 90 percent of the residential market will be controlled by the government.
On April 19, the Environmental Protection Agency announced new guidelines for “Energy Star” homes requiring them to increase “efficiency” by 20 percent more than those built to the 2009 International Energy Conservation Code. Home ownership, already the largest expense for Americans, will be further increased by required upgrades.
According to the Congressional Budget Office, in a few years the average cost of energy use to every family of four will be $6,800 per year. No one will be exempt from energy taxes and you can expect the cost of a gallon of gasoline to rise beyond $4 to European levels.
In Europe, industrial carbon quotas have enriched the continent’s biggest energy users such as steel and cement makers. Their surplus carbon permits, often provided for free, are estimated to be worth more than $4 billion at current market rates by 2012. There is no scientific justification for them.
It will be the U.S. government that will determine who receives the initial free “carbon credits”, thus giving corporations that have supported Cap-and-Trade a huge advantage over those who do not. Not only will the government rake in billions from the taxes to be imposed, but utilities will raise their prices and pass it along to consumers.
There is no need whatever to reduce use of so-called “fossil fuels.” There is no need for the “efficiency” and “conservation” measures that will be imposed. If the government would permit access to the nation’s vast reserves of coal, oil and natural gas, none of this would be needed, but it will not.
The nation is under attack from within by a consortium of fanatical environmentalists and rent-seeking corporations and utilities seeking to profit from these government mandates and limits.
It is the perfect storm. It is treason.

Obama administration continues its war on free enterprise

American Thinker
Early last year, I penned a column “Inmates in Charge of the Asylum ” that sketched out a program that Barack Obama and his allies on the left would undertake to choke off free enterprise in America. That prediction was not prescient. After all, anyone who took off their rose-colored glasses and looked beyond the media cheerleaders for Obama saw the man for what he was: an ideologue who saw capitalism as the enemy (not, say, Iran, Russia, Hugo Chavez, Islamic terrorism) and had disdain towards America.

We now see a raft of taxes that will hit small business very hard: increased taxes on income, capital gains, interest income; new taxes imposed on small businesses to pay for ObamaCare with deficits that will lead to a regime of higher taxes for everyone; estate taxes that will make it tougher to keep small businesses in tact when owners die and want to pass them on to their children.

One could go on and on.

Often the most pernicious “taxes” are camouflaged as something else (this is an administration that relies on the thesaurus to turn this reign into one long 1984): fees, regulations, fines, mandates.

A lot of this job killing will take place under the radar screen through executive orders, interpretation of existing rules that stretch credulity; personnel choices (think Van Jones); and stepping up the enforcement brigades (such as the many thousands of IRS agents that are being hired to be “Big Brothers,” monitoring our tax returns to ensure ObamaCare tax hikes are imposed).

The latest: a drive to re-categorize independent contractors as employees.

For decades the IRS has played a game of find-the-freelancer at businesses where independent contractors remain on the payroll for months or even years. Companies, especially small ones, increasingly rely on such workers because they offer greater flexibility-and because they’re cheaper. Employers can save as much as 30% on wages by avoiding payroll taxes, unemployment insurance, worker’s compensation coverage, and benefits they provide regular employees.

Now both the IRS and state agencies across the country are redoubling efforts to uncover long-term “temps.” In February the IRS launched a three-year program that will examine 6,000 companies to find permanent workers misclassified as freelancers in violation of the Tax Code. President Obama’s proposed 2011 budget includes funding for 100 additional federal staffers to pursue such cases, and it would repeal a 32-year-old rule allowing companies in industries ranging from construction to health care to legally classify long-term employees as independent contractors….

Most of the IRS action on independent-contractor violations will target small businesses and the self-employed, the General Accountability Office reports. Over the past decade the average size of small businesses has fallen, an indication that they’re using more free­lancers….

When small companies are scrutinized by the IRS or other agencies, they have a hard time mounting a challenge to any penalties they might face.

Big Brother is watching you and will bully small businesses to fess up and pay up. Even if small businesses have a legitimate claim that workers are independent contractors, will they spend money on lawyers to defend themselves against Big Bully?

But the true costs will be less flexibility for small business to expand: to take risks , say, in entering a new field or venture that they might explore by hiring freelancers. Now they will face increased risks of the IRS coming down on them like a sledgehammer. One option just might make existing workers work harder; another might be to just hire overseas workers (made so much easier thanks to the internet superhighway and the Freidman “Flat World”); another might just be not take risks.

The unmentioned benefit to the government confiscators: as independent contractors are re-classified, the number of “employees” of a business increases. Once the level hits 50, all the rules , fines, regulations, and mandates involved in ObamaCare kick in-and deliver to small business owners some additional quick kicks.

At a time when incentives and tax breaks should be used to spur job growth , the administration seems focused on strangling small business-the job growth engine of America.

This assault on free enterprise will not end well for Democrats (as Democratic campaign strategist Doug Schoen warns today in the Washington Post ). ..or for our nation.
