Obama’s Birth Announcement Forgery Allegation; VP Jokes About Certificate

As reported by AtlasShrugs [cache] from Saturday, there are continued allegations that even Mr. Obama’s birth announcement is a forgery (click on aforementioned link for multiple pics and links to further sources). Here are some updated highlights:

When I broke the explosive exclusive last June that Obama’s COLB (certificate of live birth) was a “horrible forgery,” it took a couple of days, but the O-bots sent around this “birth announcement”. That too apparently was a forgery.

Phantom zip codes also found in Virginia

The Washington Examiner

As much as $9.5 million in federal stimulus dollars went to 14 zip codes in Virginia that don’t exist or are in other states, Old Dominion Watchdog (http://virginia.watchdog.org) reports. The fake zip codes were listed on Recovery.gov, the federal Web site that is supposed to track how the stimulus money is being used.

The phony zip codes are a new wrinkle in Recovery.gov’s increasingly tattered credibility. In November, Ed Pound, director of communications for the Recovery Accountability and Transparency Board, said a rash of phantom congressional districts found on the website were the result of confusion by fund recipients, who apparently didn’t know who their congressman was.

But who would give millions of dollars to somebody who doesn’t even know their own zip code?

UPDATE: Even with a real zip code, it takes seven hours for one firm to report back to Recovery.gov on its $2,000 stimulus contract.

Now Hawaii wants to make Obama’s birthday a state holiday

Who knew Hawaii was a loony as California or Vermont? According to the Honalulu Adviser, Senate President Colleen Hanabusa wants Obama’s Aug. 4 birthday to be a Hawaii state holiday, right up there with Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Prince Jonah Kūhiō Kalaniana’ole Day, King Kamehameha I Day and even Christmas. Yes, the President that is approaching *ONE YEAR* in office, has lost more jobs than any President since World War II, a President who makes Jimmy Carter look strong on security issues apparently deserves his own holiday in one state.

Dear Mr. Beck

The Obama Files
You are ill-informed on the “Birther” issue.  Barack Obama, by his own admission, was a British subject at birth.  He has never denied having a Kenyan father, who himself was a British subject as a Kenyan native.  This is easily established under the British Nationality Act of 1948.  He is therefore disqualified to run for the office of the President, because the office is not available to subjects of other governments.  The issue is very simple, and very obvious.  Obama himself admitted that he wasn’t a natural born citizen when he debated Alan Keyes in 2004.

Let’s see you deal with this one.  There is nothing “nutty” about it, and it doesn’t depend on whether his maternal grandmother tried to cover up a foreign birth in Hawaii by placing newspaper notices.  It is as plain as your face.  BHO is a foreign national first, and an American secondarily, if at all.  That is why he thinks there are 57 states; why he doesn’t understand the constitution; why he wants to give us Britain’s health care system (it’s all in the teeth, don’t you know); why he thinks Interpol should have greater authority in the US than US law enforcement; etc.  He is a British subject and has no business holding the office of POTUS.

If you think you can overlook this constitutional crisis as not part of the Rubicon, you are mistaken.  One constitutional overlook breeds another and the next thing you know, the financial industry is nationalized, the auto industry is nationalized, the health care industry is about to be nationalized, and the energy industry will soon be nationalized.

Ultimately, it is all going to be okay, because socialism only lasts until other people’s money (OPM) runs out, and binge spender BHO has spent all the money we have and all the money we will ever have for the next several generations.  He spent all of this before he got his socialist healthcare on the table.  He and his wife have partied like Eddie Murphy in The Distinguished Gentleman (1992) since taking office, while he has busied himself with overthrowing the constitutional republic, establishing a new Islamic empire worldwide, disarming and crippling America, and unilaterally dividing Israel and Jerusalem.  The only budget constraint for Obama is ink and paper (and he is working his way around that) and his foreign policy advisor appears to be “mirror, mirror on the wall.”  He has bankrupted the nation, which the sleeping Oprah watchers are now discovering for the very first time.  The reality of the bankruptcy will hit home with gusto in 2010.  Not only will we suffer with 30% unemployment, a complete collapse of real estate, and a complete collapse of the dollar, we will also suffer the slings and arrows of dramatic military defeats, as we let this foreigner steer the ship of state.  Most Americans have no idea how bad it is going to get.

As for Obama: he will be one of history’s most reviled figures — on a par with Nero — as a fool who couldn’t even understand that when he denigrated the United States, he was destroying the very state upon which his safety and his legacy depended.  He will suffer dramatic defeat in Afghanistan and Iraq — it will not be like Viet Nam, and his name will be tarred with it.  It will be more like the disastrous defeat of Xerxes at Salamis, or the Ottomans at Sisek, or the Moors at Tours; a game changing defeat that will forever cement the destiny of the republic known as the United States of America.  Obama will join the other names in history who suffered cataclysmic losses in the lands of Magog.

His legacy?  A communist, collectivist fool, brainwashed by red diaper doper babies haunting the halls of ivy league academia whose agenda was to bring back the failed Bolshevik revolution worldwide, who brought his fully bloomed ignorance to power illegally in the US because of the needs of his narcissistic ego, whose illegitimacy caused the US to go bankrupt and to suffer its worst military setbacks in the history of the nation in just a few short months.  History will marvel at the foolishness of Americans, and historians will wonder how we as a people could have allowed this to happen.  Then, of course, historians will ultimately conclude that the demise of the greatest nation the world had ever known happened because the watchdogs whose duty it was to warn Americans of such possibilities — the so-called news media — conspired with foreign powers and global financial criminals to destroy America from the inside, as a result of their cowardice, malevolence and silence.

Contributing member: Glenn Beck, who simply could not bring himself to utter the truth about Obama — that he is a usurper, holding the presidency illegally and unconstitutionally, because he is without a legal birthright.  Let us never forget who shirked their duty to tell the truth in these last hours, and let us not allow history to forget.

The Terrorists Are In Charge

The Obama Files
Walid Phares says even Obama has admitted that we’re falling down on the job when it comes to fighting the war on terror.

In 2002, one would-be shoe bomber forced millions of travelers to take off their shoes.  In 1996, terrorists planned to bring down aircraft on transatlantic flights by smuggling liquid explosives onto plane.  They were thwarted but they succeeded in preventing passengers from bringing liquids into airline terminals.

Lesson number one: In this terror war, the jihadists have the upper hand.  THEY are in charge.  THEY are the ones who choose to use a new weapon and they are also the ones who — by using simple logic — have refrained from using the same terror weapons more than once.  In fact, since September 2001, Al Qaeda’s henchmen have avoided rushing into the cockpit of an airliner with box cutters.  Does this mean we were successful in deterring the terrorists?  Of course: as long as we can prevent them from using the 9/11 methods, they won’t be naïve enough or foolish enough to repeat the same strategy.  So are we winning the fight with Al Qaeda by using these measures?  No, we are simply protecting our population until we win the war.  But winning is not measured by surviving potential copycat attacks.

Instead, this war will be won by striking at the mechanism that produces the jihadists.  And on that level, we haven’t won this war either under the previous administration nor under the incumbent one.  For, as Obama admitted late last month after a near-terror attack on Northwest Flight 253, there is a “systemic failure” in our defense against the jihadi terrorists.

In my analysis, it has to do with the refusal by our leaders — based on the opinion of their own experts — to attack the factory that produces terrorists and instead to wait passively until the jihadists show up at our country’s ports of entries.

We have been fighting this war inside our own trenches and often behind our own lines of defense.  Preventing Al Qaeda’s zombies from killing our airline pilots and flight attendants by securing cabin doors with steel and installing machines to detect liquid, creams and potential explosives is like fighting an invading army inside our own trenches and neighborhoods with bayonets.  If anything, it means that our strategists have no way to remotely detect this threat and they can’t even decide what is and isn’t a threat until it actually strikes us or is a few inches from us.  It is a pretty ironic situation when the grand narrative of our government is that we are fighting terrorists or extremists (pick your word, it has the same conclusion) in Waziristan, Afghanistan, and beyond, so that our defense perimeters are thousands of miles away.

So are we wrong to institute any of the security measures?  No, we need to take all possible measures to secure the population, but we also need to take them in the framework of a grand strategy to defeat the threat.  And in this regard we do not have one.  The jihadists are monitoring our actions, our measures and I do assume also are comfortably spying on us and looking into the deepest of our security mechanisms.  After the Nada Prouty and Nidal Hasan penetration cases no one can convince me that neither Hezbollah nor Al Qaeda haven’t deployed more agents throughout our national security apparatus.  The enemy knows our defense strategy, and some would argue that they are already inside our walls.  As we’re learning — constantly and dramatically — the so-called “isolated extremists” are not that isolated and those believed to be “lone wolves” are in fact part of a much greater, well-camouflaged packs.  The jihadists are way ahead of our security measures — even though we need to apply them nevertheless.

In the wake of the Abdulmutalib terror act the Obama administration announced that any travelers flying into the United States from foreign countries will receive tightened random screening, and all passengers from “terrorism-prone countries” will be patted down and have their carry-on baggage searched before boarding U.S.-bound flights.  The list includes Cuba, Iran, Sudan and Syria as well as those travelling from Nigeria, Pakistan and Yemen.  But here is the problem: In the jihadi war room, this was duly noted.  Thus, the next human missiles will be selected from the “other” countries, and there are many countries where combat Salafis are indoctrinated and readied: Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Algeria, Morocco, Tunisia, and Indonesia to name a few, by the way all U.S. allies.  Even better, the jihadi strategists could task recruits with German, British, French as well as Australian and Canadian passports to wreck havoc in our cities.  The past year has shown us that the jihadis can also emerge from North Carolina, Illinois, New York and other states all across the land.  Most likely the “emirs” of Al Qaeda will recommend dumping the use of powder to blow up planes, and soon another Zawahiri tape will rail at us for spending millions on a path they won’t use for a while.

As we move to implement our mammoth security measures, the swift men of jihadism are already mapping out the endlessly open areas of our underbellies.  In strategic terms we’re not going even going anywhere near that direction, it is a dead end.  The Al Qaeda jihadists will keep coming, each time from a different direction, background, with a new tactic.  And they will surprise us.  Unfortunately, that is the price of a national security policy that identifies terrorism as a “manmade disaster” and jihadism as form of yoga.

America hasn’t been this weak since the Carter years

The Washington Times

President Obama’s freshman-year foreign policy was the worst in living memory. At the dawn of 2010, the United States finds itself noticeably weaker in international affairs than it was when Mr. Obama took office, and there are no signs of improvement in the year ahead.

Mr. Obama was elected with almost no national security experience, but he counted on two principle sources of leverage on the world stage: his personal charisma and the fact that he was not George W. Bush. The year began with much swagger and self-assurance, but the result was a foreign policy with the naive enthusiasm of someone who once may have taken a graduate seminar in international relations.

Mr. Obama’s first-week pledge to close the detainee facility at Guantanamo Bay within a year set the tone for 2009. It was a victory of symbolism over substance that proved to be more difficult to implement than he expected, and Mr. Obama soon found that it was easier to make lofty promises than to deliver prudent policies.

Other failures followed. Efforts to regionalize a peace process in Afghanistan, Pakistan and India foundered on the rocks of entrenched national interests. The president announced a “stronger and smarter” strategy for Afghanistan in March, and another in November that contained a deadline which is not quite a deadline, for a pullout that is not really a pullout.

Mr. Obama’s unprecedented, fawning outreach to the Muslim world has produced no tangible results, no dramatic shifts in public opinion regarding U.S. policies, and certainly no reduction of the terror threat. This was brought home by the attempted Christmas Day bombing that literally almost ended the year with a bang. Al Qaeda views Mr. Obama with outright contempt, offensively declaring him to be a “house Negro” in contrast to purportedly “honorable black Americans” like Malcolm X.

The one solitary success Mr. Obama has enjoyed came from continuing President Bush’s policy of using drone aircraft for selective strikes on terror targets. Philip Alston, United Nations Special Rapporteur on Extrajudicial, Summary or Arbitrary Executions, has said that this practice may violate international law, and it has caused some consternation among Mr. Obama’s supporters who were under the mistaken impression that he is a man of peace.

Mr. Obama’s outreached hand failed to uncurl Tehran’s fist; Iran’s Islamic regime is pushing ahead on its nuclear and missile programs and unleashing thugs to beat down pro-democracy demonstrators. When Mr. Obama spoke dreamily in September about a world without nuclear weapons, French President Nicolas Sarkozy noted sharply that the only things such proposals have delivered are “more uranium enrichment and declarations by the leaders of Iran to wipe out a U.N. member state off the map.”

The Israeli-Palestinian peace process stalled due to a combination of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s grit and a divided, ineffective Palestinian leadership. In May, Israel ignored the administration’s demand for a settlement freeze, and the Arab world was shocked when Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton backed off the freeze demand in November. The administration quickly walked back Mrs. Clinton’s statement, which only enhanced the sense of American confusion and impotence.

The Obama administration flip-flopped in dealing with the presidential crisis in Honduras, unwisely rushing to side with Venezuela, Cuba and Nicaragua in calling for return of failed dictator Manuel Zelaya. Then, months later, the United States supported the results of the Honduran elections.

The administration delighted Moscow by abandoning the missile defense system slated for deployment in Poland and the Czech Republic. North Korea continued to pursue its objectives unabated, testing a nuclear weapon and long-range missile, withdrawing from the 1953 armistice agreement with South Korea and declaring it will weaponize its plutonium stocks. In response, the United States unilaterally conceded to long-standing North Korean demands for bilateral talks, and several weeks ago the president sent a personal appeal to dictator Kim Jong-il to which he has not received a response.

The Copenhagen climate conference turned out to be a dismal failure. Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao openly snubbed the president, and the final statement which Mr. Obama brokered was not approved by the conference.

Other embarrassing Obama moments on the world stage include: giving England’s Queen Elizabeth II an iPod with his own speeches on it; giving British Prime Minister Gordon Brown a collection of DVDs that were not formatted to the European standard (by contrast, Mr. Brown gave Mr. Obama an ornamental desk-pen holder made from the oak timbers of Victorian anti-slaver HMS Gannet, among other historically significant gifts); calling “Austrian” a language; bowing to the Saudi king; bowing to the Japanese emperor; releasing a photo of a conference call with Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in which the president was showing the soles of his shoes to the camera (an Arab insult); saying “let me be absolutely clear. Israel is a strong friend of Israel’s”; saying the United States was “one of the largest Muslim countries in the world”; suggesting Arabic translators be shifted from Iraq to Afghanistan where Arabic is not a native language; sending a letter to former French President Jacques Chirac when Nicolas Sarkozy was the president of France; holding a town-hall meeting in France and not calling on a single French citizen; referring to “Cinco de Cuatro” in front of the Mexican ambassador when he meant Cinco de Mayo; and failing in a last minute personal appeal to the International Olympic Committee to hold the 2016 Olympics in Chicago. Mr. Obama’s Nobel Peace Prize capped the year by drawing attention to his lack of achievement.

The world is a tough neighborhood. Mr. Bush was not loved, but he was feared, which Machiavelli advises is a more durable position. Mr. Obama has sought only to be loved, but in the process has disappointed America’s allies and encouraged our adversaries. The world has the measure of the man in the White House, and he doesn’t measure up to the task at hand. Unless he shows a stronger hand, Mr. Obama will continue to increasingly follow global events rather than lead them.
