Reasoning ‘Kenyan Born’

PJ Media

Janine Turner

Reason is the fundamental element to keeping a republic viable. If the people lose their ability to reason, or their desire to reason, republicanism becomes obsolete. History has proven this over and over again.

Hence the reason John Adams said, “Liberty cannot be preserved without a general knowledge among the people.” Hence the challenge Benjamin Franklin gave Americans by stating they had given us a republic — if we could keep it.

The question today is if Americans really want to keep republicanism. Republicanism requires vigilance and passion, civic responsibility and reason.

Republicanism cannot be maintained by “letting other people do it.”

A good example is the story of the quarreling brothers. As the story goes, two young brothers were fighting over a peanut butter sandwich. Their mother stepped in and said, “Now boys, think about what Jesus would do. He would give his sandwich to the other.” The boys thought about this for a moment and then the older brother said to his sibling, “Ok, you be Jesus!”

Letting other people do all the work while enjoying the fruits of the labor is represented in many ways other than “spreading the wealth around.” Often in our republic people want to “spread the civic work away” – from them. Many people do not want to “get involved” in the responsibility of maintaining our republic.

This may manifest in an avid passion to destroy republicanism because they believe that flatlining life and lives is the answer, or it may manifest in the opposite way, which is seemingly innocent but just as destructive — by being politically correct.

The ideology of flatlining and the submission to political correctness both defy reason and reason is fundamental. The irony is that the left, with its desire to flatline life, and the right, with its desire to be quietly conservative and politically correct, are colliding in a ruin of republicanism.

Case in point — the question of where President Obama was born. This question is permeating the web in a radical way with the emergence of Obama’s former author bio, which states he was “born in Kenya.” This bio was a part of Obama’s persona until he began to run for president in 2007.

Obama’s Eligibility: The Final Word

T-Room

by Paul R. Hollrah

In recent days I have been drawn into yet another debate over presidential eligibility, as specified in Article II, Section 1 of the U.S. Constitution.  Given that Barack Obama has occupied the Oval Office illegally for more than five years, without so much as a whimper of protest from most American voters or the mainstream media, some may feel that any further discussion of this matter may be akin to “beating a dead horse.” Nevertheless, if we insist on referring to ourselves as a constitutional republic, and if we continue to insist that we honor constitutional principles and the rule of law, then we have no choice but to understand precisely what the Founders intended when they drafted our governing document in 1787.

What generated my recent exchange on the subject of presidential eligibility was an article in the January 31, 2014 edition of pegAlert, the newsletter of the Pennsylvania Business Council.  The article in question was titled, “SANTORUM PREPPING FOR ANOTHER RUN IN 2016.”

Obama Eligibility Challenge Reaches United States Supreme Court

By Sharon Rondeau | The Post & Email (Jan. 28, 2014) —

 

REPEATING A LIE “DOESN’T MAKE IT TRUTHFUL”

A petition for certiorari regarding Barack Hussein Obama’s constitutional eligibility to serve as president and commander-in-chief arrived at the U.S. Supreme Court and was docketed as of January 23, 2014 after a long and circuitous routing through the New York State courts.

Obama’s eligibility has been questioned since late 2007, when commentator Chris Matthews stated on air that Obama was “born in Indonesia,” followed by a similar report in a Hawaii newspaper.  Various reports in African newspapers dating back to before Obama’s first presidential election in 2008 stated that Obama was born in Kenya.  His own biographer concurred until April 2007, when the official narrative changed to say that Obama was born in Hawaii.
Article II, Section 1, clause 5 of the U.S. Constitution requires the president and commander-in-chief to be a “natural born Citizen.”
Compounding doubt as to whether or not Obama meets the constitutional criteria, he claims that his father was a citizen of Kenya and later, Great Britain, following Kenyan independence in 1963.  Research into the intent of the “natural born Citizen” clause has shown that the citizenship of the parents, and not the birthplace, was actually paramount in determining a child’s citizenship and allegiance.  In the modern era, however, the term has been eviscerated such that most Americans interpret it to mean a simple birth on U.S. soil without regard to the parents’ citizenship.

Is Obama Planning a Third Term as President & Is Congress Able to Stop Him?

Freedom Outpost

A third term for President Obama?  Impossible you say.  Unconstitutional you  say.  True.  The 22nd Amendment says, “No person shall be elected to the office  of President more than twice.”  In 1947 FDR had just been elected to an  unprecedented fourth term.  After twelve years in office, political cronyism was  so deeply ingrained in public law and philosophy that Congress called a  Constitutional Convention for the purpose of proposing the 22nd Amendment;  subsequently ratified by three-fourths of the states and enacted into law.

So how can President Obama seek a third term?  Well, the Constitution also  says in Article  II, Section 1 that, “No person except a natural born Citizen. . . shall be  eligible to the Office of President.”  How’s that one been working out for ya?   We will no doubt be hearing much more about that should Senator  Ted Cruz (R-TX) seek the presidential  nomination, but that’s  another story for another day.

An Open Letter, To Those Masquerading as the Media

Sharon Rondeau 

 The Post & Email

To the 39 “media” outlets protesting lack of access to the Obama White House in a hand-delivered letter on November 21, 2013:

Putative White House Press Secretary Jay Carney was given a letter signed by 39 members of the media protesting lack of access and ability to photograph Obama in his official capacity.

Your missive to putative White House spokesman Jay Carney will fall on deaf ears.
You wonder why Obama’s handlers will not allow you access to “the President while he is performing his official duties.”  You question why only sanitized, poised photos released by the White House are allowed to circulate in the public arena.  In order to obtain answers, however, you need to look at yourselves and admit what you, not Obama, did to your profession.
Had you researched Obama’s background in 2007 and 2008, you would have found out that he is a communist.  “Communist,” you say?  Oh, you believed that communists were a thing of the past, something railed about by that crazy Sen. Joseph McCarthy back in the 1950s while more sophisticated members of the Congress and the “media” laughed behind his back or ridiculed him openly.  Yes, ridicule is a thing you “journalists” do quite well when you see something that is simply below your elevated stature to investigate.

An example is the questions about Obama’s constitutional eligibility which arose in 2008.
In late 2007, progressive talking head Chris Matthews said on MSNBC that “Obama was born in Indonesia.”  While Matthews failed to cite a source for his statement, a second similar report went to print in a Hawaii publication shortly thereafter.  None of you was even the slightest bit curious about Obama’s background and whether or not he was constitutionally eligible to occupy the highest office in the land.  You gave no thought to Article II, Section 1, clause 5 of the Constitution which mandates that only a “natural born Citizen” be elected to the presidency.

Is Obama a Criminal?

The Post & Email.

In 2008, the man known as “Barack Hussein Obama” campaigned on a platform of “hope and change,” followed by “Forward!” in 2012.

On April 27, 2011, the above image was posted on the White House website and purported to be a certified copy of Obama’s long-form birth certificate. Within 24 hours, it was declared a forgery by many, and a law enforcement investigation confirmed those findings formally on March 1, 2012.

In 2008, Obama was beloved by the media, which is tasked by the First Amendment to be a watchdog, not a cheerleader, for government. Again in 2012, the mainstream media failed to report on the many questions which had never been answered about Obama’s childhood, college years, and birthplace.  It did not report that the long-form birth certificate posted on the White House website was the subject of a criminal investigation which concluded that the image was fraudulent, along with Obama’s purported Selective Service registration form.
Statements made in several overseas newspapers, by the Kenyan Parliament, Obama’s biographer and by the U.S. ambassador to Kenya that Obama was born in that country contradict public statements that he was born in Honolulu, HI on August 4, 1961 at Kapiolani Medical Center, although previously Queens Hospital was also identified as his birthplace.
Michelle Obama has called Kenya her husband’s “home country.”
The short-form Certification of Live Birth posted by an unknown source on June 12, 2008 at The Daily KOS has been declared a forgery, although former White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs vouched for it in 2009 while ridiculing the reporter who inquired about it.

Breaking: Dr. Jim Garrow: Obama Born in Kenya

Ex-CIA Operative Dr. Jim Garrow Gives Inside Info About Obama’s Forged Birth Certificate…

AUDIO EXCERPT HERE:
( Audio via WOBC.  Full interview below. )
 
By Sharon Rondeau | The Post & Email
 
(Nov. 5, 2013) — At 8:00 p.m. EST, Dr. Jim Garrow is a guest on the WheresObamasBirthCertificate radio show speaking about his “Pink Pagoda Girls” organization which saves infant girls from death in China.
 
Couples are allowed only one child in the communist country with the world’s highest population, and some decide to allow their female child to die in the hope of having a boy.
 
Obama’s long-form birth certificate was determined to be a forgery by the Maricopa County, AZ Cold Case Posse in March 2012

Garrow said he learned of the Obama birth certificate controversy from Dr. James David Manning’s radio show.  He said that he was presenting a “public persona” while working for a “particular agency” of the federal government.  Garrow was educated in Saskatchewan, Canada but has been employed in a “covert operation” for the U.S. government for 45 years.

 
“It’s been “out” there ever since the 2nd of October when I was outed by the president,” Garrow said.
 
Host Mike Volin announced that Manning will be a guest in Washington, DC when WOBC takes information to Congress about Obama’s fraudulent long-form birth certificate.
 
Garrow said that there are certain things he cannot divulge because of the “Secrets Act” and the oath he took when he went into government service.
 
He likened Obama’s long-form birth certificate to Obamacare, about which Obama lied regarding whether or not people could keep their current insurance.  He said it was “rather unbelievable” that Obama would try to pass off a fraudulent image for the authentic document.
 
He said he knows that it is “a fake, a fraud.”  “We know that there’s no record there at Kapiolani Hospital,” Garrow said.

If Obama Can Be President, Then So Can Ted Cruz

August 22, 2013

In order to understand the controversy regarding Presidential eligibility,  Americans must first disabuse themselves of the notions that politicians obey  the law and journalists tell the truth. As a class, neither is driven by service  to the nation, but by political expediency to protect and enhance their own  financial interests.

Although politicians and journalists would have you think otherwise, the laws  defining Presidential eligibility are unambiguous.

PRESIDENTIAL ILLEGITIMACY: OBAMA’S PERISHING DILEMMA

by Dan Crosby
of the Daily Pen
NEW YORK, NY – It requires a truly reprobate mind that causes one to refuse the preeminent definition of natural-born citizenship as it was divinely understood by the framers. They declared the Constitutional eligibility mandate in the critical time which required it…and forever more, because, by moral convention, it was simply normal and common to them.
Willful ignorance and shame consumes the ideologue unwilling to accept that those, existing centuries before them, more favored by God, declared natural-born eligibility from a righteous perspective rooted in an eyewitness understanding of the need to disqualify tyranny born of foul parentage, primarily, not just geographic origin.

ARPAIO WILL CONTINUE INVESTIGATION OF OBAMA’S IDENTITY

STAYING ON POINT: Despite Barack Obama’s antagonism of a racially divisive political environment, Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio says he will continue his Cold Case investigation of evidence that shows the digital image of Obama’s alleged 1961 “Certificate of Live Birth” and Selective Service registration card are fraudulent records.

By Dan Crosby
Of The Daily Pen
NEW YORK, NY – Unless the recent announcement that the U.S. Department of Justice will not pursue charges against the Maricopa County Sheriff’s office is also accompanied with a confession by the unknown criminals who counterfeited and posted to the official White House website a faked computer image of Obama’s alleged 1961 “Certificate of Live Birth”, Arizona lawman, Joe Arpaio, says he will continue his cold case investigation of the fraudulent identity records.
