The Big Lie

The Obama File

I don’t even know where to begin, although the graphic in David A. Graham’s hit-piece jumps out at you.  Visuals are good.  This one sets the tone — an angry, rabid conservative — and conspiracy theories.

Like recurring nightmares, conspiracy theories aren’t necessarily gone for good just because they disappear for a while…If you’re having a hard time keeping all these paranoid points of view straight, here’s a handy primer.

He lists his favorite theories, starting with, “Barack Obama was not born in the United States.”

It’s not clear where he must have been born instead: some say Indonesia; some say Kenya (initial suggestions that Hawaiian natives weren’t citizens when he was born in Honolulu in 1961 were quickly dismissed).  The point, so-called birthers say, is that he wasn’t born in the good old US of A, hence isn’t a natural-born citizen and therefore cannot legally be president.

Proponents: Chief birther and Beverly Hills dentist and attorney Orly Taitz, WorldNetDaily editor Joseph Farah, Rep. Nathan Deal (R-Ga.), former presidential and Senate candidate Alan Keyes, assorted tea partiers.

Kernel of Truth?  It’s fully debunked.  Forged Kenyan birth certificates have been exposed, and — despite protestations to the contrary  Obama’s birth certificate has been certified by the state of Hawaii, and images have been shown on national television.  And that’s leaving aside plenty of circumstantial proof, like birth announcements in both major Hawaiian papers from August 1961.


Joseph Goebbels would be proud of Graham’s application of his “Big Lie” technique.  His statement, “It’s fully debunked,” is easy to debunk.  He’s either a Gullible or a propagandist — maybe both.

He says, “Obama’s birth certificate has been certified by the state of Hawaii, and images have been shown on national television,” is one big lie, made up of little lies.

The last know sighting of Barack Obama’s birth certificate was sometime in the 1970s, and nobody in Hawaii has ever said, “I have seen Barack Obama’s birth certificate,” and and nobody in Hawaii has ever said, “I have certified Barack Obama’s birth certificate.” Nobody!  At no time.

The state of Hawaii never certified any such thing.  As a matter of fact, officials from the State of Hawaii have said just the opposite, and the only thing they’ll confirm is that they have Obama’s “vital records,” and that they have been amended.

Hawaii’s officials speak in written form.  I challenge Graham to produce a document from any Hawaiian official that says, “Obama’s birth certificate has been certified by the state of Hawaii.”

Any image shown on television, is a digital copy of a digital copy, of a digital copy — useless– means nothing.  Go here, and print your own copy of Obama’s bogus “Certification of Live Birth.”  When you’ve printed a copy, hold it in your hand, and ask yourself, “What does this prove?”  These four examiners say its bogus, and provide copious documentation to support their opinions.

And, of course, there’s always the “birth announcements.”

Let’s get this straight.  The birth announcements prove nothing. They would not be accepted of proof of anything in any court of law.  Especially when it can be demonstrated that Barack Obama Sr. never, ever lived at 6085 Kalanianaole Highway, the address in the announcement.  Senior remained in the “small, single story home at 625 11th Ave.” until he left Hawaii on June 22,1962.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again.  Obama has presented 3 items to the American People as his bona fides — his mythology, “Dreams…,” a counterfeit birth document, and two old newspaper clippings.

What’s going on in Graham’s propaganda piece is he’s trying to frame the issue.  To him the issue is about the birthplace.  However, The issue isn’t where Obama was born.  Fine!  He was born in Hawaii — even if he adamantly refuses to press a button and prove it — and even if no hospital, doctor, nurse, midwife or fireman has come forward to say, yup!, that’s a fact.

The issue is whether Barack Obama is eligible under the terms of the U. S. Constitution to serve as Commander-in-Chief  — and, quite simply, he’s not — as shown here, Obama is ineligible because he is a statutory citizen, not a “natural born” citizen.  He  is an usurper, who sits in the Oval Office as the result of a coup d’état.  The ad hominem attacks, diversions and misinformation by these Obots can never change that fact.

Obama may serve his one-term, and retire, but this is never, ever going to go away.  Some day it will all come out — and in a gusher.  History will come out.

Holder admits nine Obama Dept. of Justice officials worked for terrorist detainees, offers no details

By: Byron York
Chief Political Correspondent
Washington Examiner

Attorney General Eric Holder says nine Obama appointees in the Justice Department have represented or advocated for terrorist detainees before joining the Justice Department. But he does not reveal any names beyond the two officials whose work has already been publicly reported. And all the lawyers, according to Holder, are eligible to work on general detainee matters, even if there are specific parts of some cases they cannot be involved in.

Holder’s admission comes in the form of an answer to a question posed last November by Republican Sen. Charles Grassley. Noting that one Obama appointee, Principal Deputy Solicitor General Neal Katyal, formerly represented Osama bin Laden’s driver, and another appointee, Jennifer Daskal, previously advocated for detainees at Human Rights Watch, Grassley asked Holder to give the Senate Judiciary Committee “the names of political appointees in your department who represent detainees or who work for organizations advocating on their behalf…the cases or projects that these appointees work with respect to detainee prior to joining the Justice Department…and the cases or projects relating to detainees that have worked on since joining the Justice Department.”

In his response, Holder has given Grassley almost nothing. He says nine Obama political appointees at the Justice Department have advocated on behalf of detainees, but did not identify any of the nine other than the two, Katyal and Daskal, whose names Grassley already knew. “To the best of our knowledge,” Holder writes,

during their employment prior to joining the government, only five of the lawyers who serve as political appointees in those components represented detainees, and four others either contributed to amicus briefs in detainee-related cases or were otherwise involved in advocacy on behalf of detainees.

Holder says other Obama appointees, like Holder himself, came from law firms which represented detainees but did no work on behalf of the terrorist prisoners. But other than Katyal and Daskal, Holder does not reveal any names of any Obama appointees, nor does he mention the cases they worked on.

And what are they recused from, anyway? Very little. Holder writes that Katyal has not worked on any Guantanamo detainee matters but has participated in litigation involving detainees who continue to be detained at Bagram Airfield, Afghanistan and in litigation involving [Ali Saleh Kahlah] al-Marri, who was detained on U.S. soil.” As for Daskal, “she has generally worked on policy issues related to detainees,” Holder writes. “Her detainee-related work has been fully consistent with advice she received from career department officials regarding her obligations.”

As for everyone else, Holder lists no names and no cases, but in a paragraph filled with modifiers, he makes it clear that all the lawyers who had advocated for detainees are free to work on general detainee matters.

The senior Department officials referenced above, like other political appointees who are similarly situated, have recused from particular matters regarding specific detainees in which their former firms represent the detainee or another party and from decisions relating specifically to the dispositions of particular detainees represented by their former firms. These recusals pertain to decisions relating to particular matters involving specific parties who are or have been represented by their former law firms within the relevant time period. However, as noted above, these senior officials have been authorized to participate in policy and legal decisions regarding detainee matters, in particular matters regarding specific detainees whom their prior employer did not represent, and in decisions relating to the disposition of such detainees. [emphasis added]

Finally, it is possible that there are more than nine political appointees who worked for detainees. Holder tells Grassley that he did not survey the Justice Department as a whole but instead canvassed several large offices within the organization.

Bottom line: Holder revealed no names beyond the two already publicly known. He revealed no cases from which Justice political appointees recused themselves. The letter, which will likely be interpreted on Capitol Hill as a thumb-your-nose statement, is sure to anger Republican senators more than satisfy them

Obama to spell out new healthcare plan

Yahoo

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – President Barack Obama is expected to publish his healthcare plan as early as Sunday or Monday, combining features of the two Democratic bills passed by the Senate and House of Representatives, congressional aides and healthcare advocates said on Friday.

The administration’s bill will aim to jump-start the stalled healthcare overhaul and comes just days ahead of a planned televised White House summit with congressional Republicans, who are calling on Democrats to scrap the bills and start over with a far less sweeping proposal.

Democrats are struggling to push healthcare legislation over the finish line in the face of sagging public support and solid Republican opposition bolstered by recent election victories in Massachusetts, Virginia and New Jersey.

The legislation the White House will post on its website is expected to reflect common ground negotiated over the past several weeks by House and Senate Democratic leaders.

Those agreements are likely to be combined as a privileged budget reconciliation bill, which only needs a simple 51-vote majority to pass the 100-member Senate instead of the 60-vote supermajority that has become routine in the Senate and gives Republicans power to block the healthcare bill.

“I believe that’s the path we are going to take,” a senior congressional Democratic aide said.

But it is not clear, even to congressional Democrats, what the White House will include in its legislation and whether Obama will try to add proposals aimed at attracting at least some Republican support.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi have not signed off on any final agreement, several Democratic aides have said.

“We are still waiting for the president to present to Leader Reid and Speaker Pelosi his plan,” a Democratic leadership aide told Reuters.

Valerie Jarrett, one of Obama’s closest advisers, said the president would post his draft healthcare bill on the Internet in “the next couple of days.”

“The president is going to craft what he thinks is a good bill. It’s not going to be a perfect bill but it’s going to be a good bill,” she said at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

Napolitano Secretly Hosts Terrorist Groups In D.C.

Right Side News

In the Obama Administration’s latest effort to befriend radical Muslims, the cabinet official in charge of protecting the country’s safety covertly met with a group of extremist Arab, Muslim and Sikh organizations to discuss national security matters.

Briefing radical Islamists who want to murder Americans about homeland security measures may seem like a bizarre tactic to counter terrorism, but it’s the center of Obama’s famous change rhetoric.

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, most concerned about a wave of anti-Muslim backlash after the Ft. Hood massacre, and her senior staff privately met in Washington D.C. with the groups. Among them was the terrorist Muslim Brotherhood, which is a sort of parent organization of Hamas and Al Qaeda.

whentheyhitagainNot surprisingly, the mainstream media ignored the two-day event which was exclusively reported this week by an alternative internet news company that regularly breaks big stories. Napolitano actually spent and hour and a half briefing the Middle Easterners about the U.S. government’s new “counter-radicalization” and “anti-terrorist” programs largely aimed at their followers.

The top-secret event was part of President Obama’s innovative program aimed at creating an information-sharing framework with Muslim organizations, even those with known extremist ties and terrorist connections. The idea, laughable as it may seem, is to win over Muslims and get them to collaborate with the U.S. government.

Officially, the Department of Homeland Security billed the event as a low-key meeting with faith and community-based groups to brainstorm about ways to increase engagement, dialogue andinformation sharing. After all, the groups are key homeland security partners that contribute to American life and exemplify the diversity that is a hallmark of our country, the agency claimed in a press release.

Strengthening partnerships with these groups will help the U.S. better prepare, assess and respond to threats, Napolitano assures. This is the same official whose biggest concern was preventing a wave of anti-Muslim sentiment in the United States after an Al Qaeda wannabe Army major went on a murderous rampage at the nation’s largest military base.

These are just some examples of the administration’s push to befriend the enemy. Last month Secretary of State Hillary Clinton signed a special order-intended as a sign of respect to Muslims around the world-to allow the reentry of two radical Islamic academics whose terrorist ties have for years banned them from the U.S. Just this week Obama ordered the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) to focus on Muslim outreach and diplomacy, a rather unusual mission for the space agency.

DNC denies that Obama is a Natural Born Citizen

OPEN ADMISSION BY “ORGANIZING FOR AMERICA” IMPLICITLY ADMITS HE IS NOT ELIGIBLE TO BE PRESIDENT

The Post & E-Mail

by John Charlton

The Democratic mascot is not a Jack Ass for no reason: to defend your candidate by saying he is not eligible is incredible!

(Feb. 19, 2010) — Everyone and his uncle, by now, knows that to hold the office of President you have to be a “natural born Citizen” of the United States of America.  It’s written, right there, in the U.S. Constitution:  Article II, section i, clause 5:

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.

Many do not know that a “native” U.S. Citizen is a larger class of citizens who do not necessarily have U.S. Citizen parents but who are born on U.S. soil.  Native citizens are thus not eligible to be president.

But the Democratic National Committee wants you to tell all your friends that Obama is not eligible to be President.  They do this at the website for Organizing for America, which is an official project of the DNC, wherein they proclaim that Obama is a native born citizen:

Obama Says Raising Taxes Will Fix Social Security

CNS News

Henderson, Nev. (AP) – President Barack Obama says Social Security is slowly running out of money but that it can exist well into the future with a slight fix.

The system is funded with a tax on earnings, up to $109,000 a year. Obama says lifting that cap to tax a larger share of income would be one way to extend the system of monthly payments for retirees. It also would be unpopular with some.

Without an adjustment, Obama said Social Security will start to run out of money in about 20 years as more people begin collecting benefits.

Obama spoke Friday at a town-hall meeting in Henderson, Nev., the home state of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. Republicans are targeting Reid for defeat in November’s midterm elections
