The Obamagate?

The Obamagate?

“If the freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.” George Washington

I am not going to talk about how Mr. Obama stole the nomination from Hillary Clinton. I am not going to talk about widespread voter fraud involving Acorn in the Obama camp, both in the primaries and general election. I am not going to talk about how all the Obama’s men either had influence in his life or helped him to his meteoric rise to power. I am not going to talk about Obama’s pre-paid Credit Card Fraud problem. I am not going to talk about how Radical Muslims paid Obama’s way through college. I am not going to talk about Obama’s Middle East Studies Mentors. I am not going to talk about Obama’s Voodoo Economics. I am not going to talk about the Logan Act when Mr. Obama went to Europe, Iraq and spoke ungratefully about the United States and also in 2006 when he went to Kenya to meet with Odinga.

No, I am not going to talk about any of them, since none of those issues apparently mattered to those who voted for him. They elected him despite knowing those facts. So, I concede, he won the election by receiving more votes than Senator McCain who seemed he desperately wanted to wrap things up and throw in the towel.

However, I am truly disturbed. I do want to talk about the fears that are rampantly mounting, concerning the question of Mr. Obama being a natural born U.S. citizen, as required by the Constitution, to run for the office of the presidency of the United States. These fears are based on three elements:

* The failure of the RNC to execute a thorough vetting process,
   ensuring Mr. Obama is a Natural Born U.S Citizen.
* The failure of Mr. Obama to provide a legitimate Certificate of   
   Live Birth
* The failure of big media to perform its function as the
   watchdog “Fourth Branch” of the government.

This issue led Philip J. Berg, a long time Democrat and attorney, to file suit against Barack H. Obama, (Lawsuit Continues) challenging Senator Obama’s lack of  “qualification” to serve as President of the United States. He filed a Writ of Certiorari in the United States Supreme Court on October 30, 2008, requesting a review of the United States District Court, Eastern District of Pennsylvania, Judge Surrick’s dismissal of Philip J. Berg’s lawsuit against Barack H. Obama, Jr., the DNC and the other co-Defendants.

According to Berg, Obama is not eligible to be president. He says Obama was born in Kenya and he carries an Indonesian passport and became an Indonesian citizen when his stepfather adopted him while going to school in Indonesia. In an extraordinary gesture, honorable U.S. District Judge R. Barclay Surrick tossed out the suit claiming citizens do not have any standing to challenge the constitutionality of the chargers.

“This is a question of who has standing to uphold our Constitution,” Berg said in a statement. “If I don’t have standing, if you don’t have standing, if your neighbor doesn’t have standing to question the eligibility of an individual to be President of the United States – the Commander-in-Chief, the most powerful person in the world – then who does? So, anyone can just claim to be eligible for congress or the presidency without having their legal status, age or citizenship questioned.”

Berg argued, “We the people have no right to police the eligibility requirements under the U.S. Constitution? What happened to …Government of the people, by the people, for the people…?” Apparently Mr. Obama’s credential at Columbia University is SEALED. His year at Harvard is SEALED. His birth certificate in Honolulu is also SEALED.
Berg stressed the urgency of his case, arguing that “we” the people are heading to a “Constitutional Crisis” if this case is not resolved quickly.  

Utah Senator, Orrin Hatch, once said, “Judges who take the law into their own hands, who make up constitutional ‘rights’ in order to strike down laws they oppose, undermine the people’s right to have their values shape public policy and define the culture.” James Madison said, “The people are the only legitimate fountain of power, and it is from them that the constitutional charter, under which the several branches of government hold their power is derived.”

Freedom is a principle that must be applied indiscriminately. Once the constitutional laws are in place, they must be applied and practiced to their fullest. After living in America for 30 years, I have come to believe the Americans, of all people, understand the importance of a good, legal and sound constitutional framework as the foundation of political life.

Here is the question in the minds of many American citizens now: Is Barack Obama a United States Natural Born Citizen, and is he eligible to become the President of the United States, or did he present a forged government document to verify a citizenship he does not possess?

I am a recent “shareholder” in this magnificent “company” — United States of America. The charter that lights the path of this country is the Constitution. I vehemently disagree with those who are more than willing to violate the Constitution and call it little more than a body of suggestions that can be disregarded when expedient. To me, the Constitution is our nation’s most sacred document. It is the document that binds its vastly diverse constituents as equal loyal members.

I strongly feel that Mr. Obama and his supporters have not abided by the explicit provisions of the Constitution. For this reason, I am launching my protest and am demanding that the truth about Mr. Obama’s eligibility to be the president of this great nation be conclusively established so that we can function as one nation and without the nagging question about Obama’s eligibility that deeply troubles me and millions of my fellow Americans.



Obama and the Daley Machine

Obama and the Daley Machine

Bruce Thompson
A well-spoken black liberal from Hyde Park is elected to the highest office. Blacks are rejoicing that one of their own had risen so high and affirmed their chance for the brass ring. Been there, done that with the election of Harold Washington as Mayor of Chicago in 1983.

What ensued was called Beirut on the Lake or Council Wars. By 1989 Richard M Daley was elected mayor. He is now destined to supplant his father, Richard J Daley (1955-1976) as the longest serving mayor in Chicago’s history. Simply put, Chicago is Daley’s town and has been for over 50 years. There have been eleven presidents elected in that span, Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon, Ford, Carter, Reagan, Bush 41, Clinton, Bush 43 and now Obama. Presidents come and go, the Machine lives on.

Now the Democrats have been out of power for eight years, with the last Democratic President having left office in an ethical cloud of Biblical proportions (Monica Lewinsky, the perjury conviction, the last minute pardons for assorted lowlifes etc. etc.). Not so good for a city yearning for federal handouts. Even worse, during the Clinton administration various Clintonistas had been absorbed into the Daley Machine and vice versa. Some common names are Bill Daley and Rahm Emanuel. Then the party chooses and loses with two mopes, Al Gore and John Kerry, opening the way for Hillary Clinton to be the anointed one in 2008.


With typical Clinton tactics, she had been trying to co-opt the Daleys to get the Machine to do her bidding. Bad move, as it alienated them. And they are the masters of co-opting! Since none of them could run for President with their Machine reputation (and U S Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald on the Hired Truck case) they needed someone to support against Clinton. They picked Barack Obama. They had seen a black superstar rise before and within six years had re-asserted control.


There are those who will tell you Obama is not a Machine politician, he is a Hyde Park liberal. But read Mayor Washington’s biography again: he was in and out of favor a few times. Heck, Richard J. Daley won his first election as a Republican! There are always internal struggles going on among the lieutenants. But they know who’s Boss.


It is quite telling that both Rahm Emanuel and Barack Obama know their places in the sphere of Chicago politics. Obama’s first appointment was Emanuel as his “minder” from the Boss. For those mindful of the rat-tat-tat Chicago of Al Capone, just remember that the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre was Capone versus another mob boss, Bugsy Moran. Plus ca change, plus la meme chose!


Find this a bit far-fetched? Note that Daley’s biggest future plan is the 2016 Olympics, something he co-opted from Republican businessman Pat Ryan, which has its own minder Valerie Jarrett as Co-Chair. Yes the same Valerie Jarrett who hired Michelle to work at City Hall when she was deputy chief of staff to Richard M Daley. The one who got to chaperone the Barack-Michelle romance.


Barack Obama has a shorter leash than you might assume a president-elect could wear, and Mayor Daley holds the other end.
