Readers of this column will agree… perhaps complain… that I have harped on the subject of Barack Obama’s presidential eligibility for at least a decade, and that, in spite of all my passion and my never-say-die approach to the issue, that worthless piece of excrement was still able to serve two full terms in the White House.
But, just as Christopher Columbus and Ferdinand Magellan were convinced that they could reach the East Indies by sailing west, I am just as convinced that I have been right about Obama’s lack of eligibility from the first day he stepped into the national spotlight. And, as each new piece of information presents itself, I feel duty-bound to see how it fits into the puzzle. So please bear with me as I add a new piece or two to the puzzle.
From February 10, 2007, the day that Barack Obama announced his candidacy for president of the United States, millions of patriots who love the Constitution and who believe in the Rule of Law have steadfastly insisted that Obama is not a “natural born” citizen, as required by Article II, Section 1, Clause 5 of the U.S. Constitution.
Barack Obama was born on August 4, 1961, to a 17-year-old American mother, Stanley Ann Dunham, and a 25-year-old African father, Barack Hussein Obama, Sr., a citizen of Kenya, a British crown colony. Since one Obama parent was a U.S. citizen and the other was a British subject, it is indisputable that Barack Obama was born with dual US-British citizenship, making it impossible for him to qualify as a “natural born” U.S. citizen and disqualifying him from ever serving as president or vice president of the United States.
Nevertheless, when Democratic “king-makers” decided that Obama had presidential potential, they arranged his dramatic “coming out” as keynote speaker for the 2004 Democratic National Convention in Chicago. In 2006 they elected him to the U.S. Senate, and within months he went to Springfield, Illinois, to announce his candidacy for president of the United States. Following a bitter campaign against former first lady Hillary Rodham Clinton, Obama was nominated on August 27, 2008, in Denver, Colorado.
But there is strong circumstantial evidence that the leaders of the Democrat Party knew when they nominated him that he was ineligible for the presidency. On the closing day of the 2008 convention, as Nancy Pelosi and Alice Travis Germond, Chairman and Secretary of the convention, respectively, prepared certificates of nomination for the 50 state election boards, so that ballots could be printed, the Democrats tipped their hand. The certification sent only to the State of Hawaii, pursuant to Hawaii Revised Statutes §11-113, read as follows:
“THIS IS TO CERTIFY that at the National Convention of the Democrat Party of the United States of America, held in Denver, Colorado on August 25 though (sic) 28, 2008, the following were duly nominated candidates of said Party for President and Vice President of the United States respectively and that the following candidates for President and Vice President of the United States are legally qualified to serve under the provisions of the United States Constitution.” The remaining forty-nine states received the following certification:
“THIS IS TO CERTIFY that at the National Convention of the Democrat Party of the United States of America, held in Denver, Colorado on August 25 though (sic) 28, 2008, the following were duly nominated as candidates of said Party for President and Vice President of the United States respectively:” The phrase, “… and that the following candidates for President and Vice President of the United States are legally qualified to serve under the provisions of the United States Constitution” was purposely omitted. Other than that, the documents were absolutely identical… even to the misspelling of the word “through” in the second line of the certifications.
Having nominated an inexperienced and unqualified man for president of the United States, the Democrats were past the point of no return. Accordingly, when WorldNetDaily published the details of a sworn affidavit by retired Chicago postman, Allen Hulton, on March 19, 2012, as Obama was preparing to run for a second term, there was nothing to be gained by attempting to refute Hulton’s affidavit… so they simply ignored it.
In his affidavit, the retired postman with thirty-nine years of service to the United States Postal Service, recounted his experiences delivering mail to the home of Bill Ayers parents in Glen Ellyn, Illinois, a suburb located some 25 miles west of downtown Chicago. Hulton explained that, on numerous occasions during the late ‘80s and early ‘90s, as he delivered mail to the Ayers’ front door, he engaged in brief conversations with Mary Ayers, Bill Ayers’ mother.
On one such occasion, Mrs. Ayers explained that she and her husband, Thomas, CEO of Commonwealth Edison, were financially supporting a young black man, a foreign exchange student from either Kenya or Indonesia, with his education. [Note: This would have been at a time between his first and second years at Harvard Law School, when he worked as a summer intern at the Sidley Austin Law Firm in Chicago.]
Hulton described one occasion on which he had a conversation with the young black man in question, who he identified as being Barack Obama. After a friendly greeting, Hulton asked the young man what his plans were for the future, after he finished his schooling. Hulton recalled, “He looked right at me and told me he was going to be president of the United States. There was a little bit of a grin on his face as he said it… He sounded sure of himself, but not arrogant…”
Reading Hulton’s sworn affidavit, I couldn’t help but recall several other odd events that took place during the 108th Congress, in 2003, and during the 109th Congress, in 2005. On June 11, 2003, Rep. Vic Snyder (D-AR) introduced H.J.R. 59 which would have totally eliminated the “natural born Citizen” requirement in Article II, Section 1 of the Constitution. The Snyder resolution was followed by H.J.R. 67, introduced on September 3, 2003, by Rep. John Conyers (D-MI). The Conyers proposal was similar to the Snyder proposal. Either of the proposed amendments would have legitimized an Obama presidency.
Then, on January 4, 2005, early in the 109th Congress, Conyers made a second attempt with the introduction of H.J.R. 2, proposing the same language as contained in H.J.R. 67 of the 108th Congress. And on April 14, 2005, Rep. Vic Snyder made yet another attempt, introducing H.J.R. 42, containing amendatory language identical to his H.J.R. 59 of the 108th Congress. All four of the proposed resolutions, proposing to send constitutional amendments to the states for ratification, suffered the same fate. All died in committee without being acted upon.
Knowing all of this, one could hardly escape the feeling of having walked in at the middle of a movie. What was it that made Democrats so anxious to launch constitutional amendments in 2003, a year before anyone had ever heard of Barack Obama, and again in 2005 when he was just beginning to contemplate a run for the U.S. Senate?
Was Barack Obama a plant, a young communist who was selected and groomed over many decades to become president of the United States? And, if so, who planted him? Who was the grand puppet master? A potential answer to these questions appears on page 158 of Edward Klein’s current best-seller, All Out War – The Plot to Destroy Trump. Klein tells us that, in organizing the effort to undermine the Trump presidency, “(Valerie) Jarrett arranged a visit by Hillary Clinton, who urged Obama to join her in leading the ‘resistance.’ Jarrett made sure that Obama received assurances of support from George Soros, who had been funding Obama since his early days in the Illinois state legislature (emphasis added)…”
If Klein is correct in his assertion… that Obama and Soros were joined at the hip as far back as the early ‘90s…, he adds credence to a letter published by California software developer, Tom Fife, in 2008. Fife worked in Moscow in the early ‘90s, developing joint ventures with Russian software engineers.
As Fife has written, he and his American associates were invited to dinner one evening at the apartment of their Russian partner, referred to as “V.” As the evening wore on and the vodka consumption went unabated, V’s wife, a hardcore communist, became surly and argumentative. She said, “You Americans always like to think that you have the perfect government and your people are always so perfect. Well then, why haven’t you had a woman president by now? Well, I think you are going to be surprised when you get a black president very soon.”
Fife and the other Americans assured her that there was nothing standing in the way of a black or female president. Given the right person at the right time, Americans would vote for the right person, be he or she black or not.
After a brief silence, V’s wife asked, “What if I told you that you will have a black president very soon and he will be a Communist? Well, you will; and he will be a Communist.” V attempted to change the subject, but his wife was determined to gain the upper hand. She said, “Yes, it is true. This is not some idle talk. He is already born and he is educated and being groomed to be president right now. You will be impressed to know that he has gone to the best schools of Presidents. He is what you call “Ivy League.” You don’t believe me, but he is real and I even know his name. His name is Barack. His mother is white, and American, and his father is black, from Africa. That’s right, a chocolate baby! And he’s going to be your President… His father is not an American black so he won’t have that social slave stigma. He is intelligent and he is half white and has been raised from the cradle to be an atheist and a Communist… He is being guided every step of the way and he will be irresistible to America.”
She had many more details. She went on to say that the young man named Barack, who was being groomed to be president of the United States, was from Hawaii, that he went to college in California, that he lived in Chicago, and that he was soon to be elected to the state legislature. She said, “Have no doubt; he is one of us, a Soviet.”
Could it be true? At a time in our history when a billionaire real estate developer from New York, with no prior political experience, can be elected president of the United States, exactly what remains outside the realm of possibility?
Recall the day in March 2012 when Obama leaned over toward Russian President Dmitri Medvedev during a photo-op, giving the Russian assurances on the potential for future missile defense negotiations. Unaware that he was near an open microphone, Obama said, “Tell Vladimir (Putin) that, after I’m reelected, I will have more flexibility.” Who’s side was he on? Really!
