Numerous legal challenges have been filed in an effort to force president-elect Barack Obama to validate his constitutional eligibility for the office he seeks and while it is true that suit after suit has been denied in the courts, it is also true that all of them have been denied on a technicality rather than on the merits of the case against Obama.
And although Obama could have ended the debate months ago by simply delivering a $10.00 certified copy of his official birth records to prove his constitutional edibility, he has instead chosen to spend nearly a million bucks in legal defense fees hoping to run out the clock and assume office before any of the legal challenges will be heard by the courts.
A few things are quite clear at this point
- Article II – Section I of the Constitution clearly limits those who can serve as Commander-in-Chief to “natural born citizens” of the United States, and for good reason
- The Hawaii certificate posted on Obama’s web-site is insufficient and in question at best
- Obama’s Kenyan relatives state that they attended his birth in Kenya
- Later, Obama was indeed a legal citizen of Indonesia, traveling under his Indonesian passport as recent as in his early twenties
- There is no known record of Obama changing his Indonesian citizenship back to American citizenship, and it wouldn’t make him a “natural born citizen” even if he did
- None of this seems to matter to anyone of consequence…
On this basis, we are headed towards not one, but numerous constitutional crises.
How will an unconstitutional president rule?
For starters, it’s clear that he will rule without regard for the constitution or the laws erected upon that foundation. His entire presidency is a blatant violation of both.
When political power is the only goal, the end always justifies the means. In what ways will this new unconstitutional government seek to subvert or pervert constitutional law for its own political gain?
Responding to a question about what type of judicial appointments he would make, Obama said, “We need somebody who’s got the heart, the empathy, to recognize what it’s like to be a young teenage mom. The empathy to understand what it’s like to be poor, or African-American, or gay, or disabled, or old. And that’s the criteria by which I’m going to be selecting my judges.” –
This somewhat innocuous sounding Obama statement is the basis upon which an unconstitutional president will dismantle constitutional law and the representative republic it has held together for more than 230 years.
The sum of his statement is this. Justice must not be blind to color, race, gender, sexual preference or religious doctrine. It must favor some segments of society over others. It must provide unequal justice for some members of society at the expense of other members of society.
Specifically, justice must favor the poor, the African-American, the gay, the disabled and the old, at the expense of all who are not poor, African-American, gay, disabled or old. In short, justice must become yet another affirmative action committee.
“At the establishment of our constitutions, the judiciary bodies were supposed to be the most helpless and harmless members of the government. Experience, however, soon showed in what way they were to become the most dangerous; that the insufficiency of the means provided for their removal gave them a freehold and irresponsibility in office; that their decisions, seeming to concern individual suitors only, pass silent and unheeded by the public at large; that these decisions, nevertheless, become law by precedent, sapping, by little and little, the foundations of the constitution, and working its change by construction, before any one has perceived that that invisible and helpless worm has been busily employed in consuming its substance. In truth, man is not made to be trusted for life, if secured against all liability to account.”
Thomas Jefferson, letter to Monsieur A. Coray, Oct 31, 1823
The left has used the courts to undermine constitutional law and founding American principles and values for many years now. Today, Americans have so little respect for constitutional law that they see no problem with seating an unconstitutional president who openly promises to use the full weight and power of the federal government, including the judicial branch, to completely dismantle the republic.
Obama has the power of the people behind him. He was elected by a seven million vote margin, despite the fact that he is constitutionally ineligible for the office he seeks.
Jefferson warned about this too, “A democracy is nothing more than mob rule, where fifty-one percent of the people may take away the rights of the other forty-nine.”
The People’s Unalienable Rights
These words are the cornerstone of American freedom and liberty…
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” – Our Declaration of Independence
Yet these rights have already been alienated. Not so much by congress, the legitimate law making branch of the federal government, but by the courts, which have operated as a politically appointed and motivated nine member affirmative action oligarchy.
- Over forty million innocent Americans have been robbed of their unalienable right to Life by way of the unbridled right of a mother to kill
- Individual Liberty has been alienated by the rights of a greater common good
- The unalienable right to pursue Happiness has been alienated by the governments right to confiscate the earned property of some for benefit of others via oppressive taxation
Still, the people have voted themselves even deeper into an unconstitutional abyss by electing an unconstitutional president to preside over a congress controlled by the same leftists who have already stripped Americans of many of their fundamental rights.
Rendering the Constitution Irrelevant
If Article II – Section I of the US Constitution is meaningless, can you tell me what parts of the Constitution still have standing?
The issue of Obama’s eligibility is much bigger than Obama himself, the Democratic quest for unbridled power, or even the ill-fated hope for change in the hearts of many ill-informed American voters.
McCain’s $326 million dollar campaign was no match for Obama’s $712 million dollar coup, much of which was funded by unknown foreign sources.
The seating of Barack Obama in the Oval Office amounts to rendering the entire US Constitution moot. The new affirmative action administration will operate free from constitutional limitations, as the constitution will be rendered irrelevant as of the swearing in ceremony on January 20th.
The Democrat controlled congress will not stop it from happening. The people voted for it. The courts refuse to weigh in against the overwhelming “will of the people,” and they won’t stop it either.
Obama is not the issue here. Constitutional law and the survival of a free representative republic is the issue at hand.
Federal power was to be limited by the letter of the US Constitution, as it was ratified by the people of the states. Without the constitution, there are no limitations to federal power.
If Article II – Section I of the constitution is meaningless, then the entire constitution is meaningless. Do the people willing to look the other way just to seat Obama, realize this?
Why has Obama spent a million dollars in legal fees when he could have spent $10.00 for a certified copy of his birth records?
You have eighteen days to find the answer to this question, and then find someone in power who cares… Good Luck!
