Thoughts on Our Constitutional Republic
Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. John 15:13 KJV
Thank you…my hand over my heart in praise, gratitude and joy…may God Bless You and Keep You Always…
Of all the so called ‘Patriot Actions’ the one that is most disturbing to me is the call for a Constitutional Convention. Over the last several years many have proposed new amendments to the Constitution, including some of the major provisions such as the qualifications for the office of the president, and other amendments that require Congress to follow the same rules as citizens of the United States and a balanced budget amendment.
What we don’t hear, even from the patriots, is the need to eliminate illegal amendments–those not ratified properly by the states– such as the 14th, 16th, and 17th amendments. Nor do we hear calls for the restoration of the original 13th Amendment, which would have prevented lawyers (titles of nobility such as ‘esquire) to serve in government. And of course, nobody talks about enforcing the existing constitution, which for example would eliminate the need for a ‘balanced budget amendment’ because Congress would have to stay within its enumerated powers.
So the lawyers and lobbyists across the country are pushing for a Constitutional Convention, glaringly a ‘con’ as in ‘con con’. Remember this is the same group of people who were barred from serving in government by the original 13th amendment, which ‘disappeared’ from the Constitution after the war of 1812. The British burned the White House and the effort was to eliminate the records, research, and proceedings that produced the Declaration of Independence and the first Constitutional Convention which produced the Constitution for the United States.
The lawyers and legal profession, and its gaggle of judges, would go on to essentially ‘gut’ the Constitution’s provisions by developing the Administrative Procedures Act (APA) and other “legal tools” to prevent we the people from even knowing the strength of the Constitution’s provisions and the protection of our God-given rights enshrined therein. The APA essentially makes it impossible to gut excessive agency development, for example, the EPA, and allows a suit only on the grounds that it violates the APA, not the Constitution’s limits on executive power. If the lawyers were barred initially from serving in the government, what are they doing now rewriting the constitution?
What will Disappear in the New Constitution?
You can believe that our founding on God’s law–common law–will be eliminated. This is the dream of all the marxist dems and all the republicans, now clearly just one part of the cabal that dislikes the American people and disrespects our founding documents, calls our founding fathers ‘terrorists’, and claims that our constitution is fatally flawed. This propaganda has been spread to the general population through government schools (Common Core, anyone?), and now through our churches which have completed the ‘falling away’ as 2 Thessalonians 2:3 predicted. And here we have Pastors saying that the American people do not deserve liberty anymore. We can point fingers at everyone else as to who is responsible for this debacle, but when you point one finger at anyone three point back at you.
If our founding principles disappear, then all we have is a counterfeit. That suits satan’s purposes just fine. As long as we don’t remember God, or Jesus the Christ, our the founding principles of common law within the ten commandments, then confusion and lies will reign. That’s the plan.
Questions for a Constitutional Convention
Is a Constitutional Convention an appropriate tool to renew the foundations of liberty in America? Here are some questions for consideration that will help you decide!
What is going on in your part of the country on a Constitutional Convention? Where do citizens, legislators, Pastors, and attorneys stand on this issue in your state?
These are John McCain’s
freedom fighters rebels. His goal is regime change.
These are Nancy Pelosi and John Kerry’s “we have to bomb Syria to find out who the rebels are“
These are Obama’s Muslim Brotherhood Egyptian/Libyan/Turkish/Saudi operatives, his Al Queda friends, the ones who he will ‘draw a red line’ for.
These are the fighters against Christians. Remember Kosovo? Serbia? “Paving the way for radical islamic jihad, one nation at a time.”
These are the people responsible for the use of chemical weapons.
We all bleed the same color. RED
American blood spilled for decidedly un-American causes.
American blood spilled in a war against Christianity…a war against our very foundation.
Here they are–the Syrian rebels posted this picture on their FACEBOOK page of how they feel about the U.S. Congress–vote for war or you will die.

For a guy who supposedly won the Nobel Peace Prize, Obama sure likes the thought of killing more people in the Middle East. Harsh? Well, we need look no further than Benghazi to know that the objectives of this administration are the destabilization not only of the Middle East, but of America too. More of our young men and women–who should be protecting the homeland from both domestic and foreign enemies–sent into harms way to fulfill a political agenda, wrapped in ‘humanitarian concerns’.
Remember the Obama administration has been arming jihadidsts all over the world, which is what the Libyan Benghazi mission was all about. Weapons shipped to the Syrian rebels through Libya, or Turkey have killed now over 60,000 innocents. How many do you suppose were Christians?
The Constitution, in tatters already due to an imposter in the White House, the federal reserve, and a spineless Congress made up of politicians that call themselves democrats or republicans, won’t see the light of day regarding Syria as Obama won’t ask for Congressional authority. He will piggy-back on Bush’s Iraq War resolution—which he did to justify the Libya murders–and seize the power to bomb Syria…with or without the United Nations.
The Chemical False Flag Attack
Blame the chemical attack on Assad, and invade. That’s the plan. Use the media to invent public support, ridicule the requirement to abide by the Constitution, and justify the invasion. What a bunch of immoral morons that are running this country. Stooping to false flags to achieve their murderous agenda
And why would Assad release chemical weapons when he knows it would bring world rebuke? No, it was the rebels who overran the chemical weapons storage facility in Aleppo and began their attacks in December. The UN concluded from investigation then that the U.S.-backed Syrian rebels had used sarin gas. And if the rebels are using gas on the very civilians it wants to rule, they would happily stage a chemical attack on their own soldiers just to win the Libya-style UN bombardment.
…and don’t forget the light transparent covers for those veggies to protect them from chemtrails…collect and filter rain water through a charcoal and sand filter…
A favorite Friday website mailing is G. Edward Griffin’s Reality Zone/Unfiltered News. This week’s edition contains important linkages about the chemical weapons attack in Syria and who might be behind it. Many are thinking that another false flag attack is necessary to ‘finish’ the long-planned conflagration in the Middle East, with spillovers to the United States. I am grateful for individuals who are contributing much to our understanding of the reality of the present day…

Though the headlines may have died down on Mr. Obama’s occupancy of the White House, millions of Americans know he is still ineligible to serve as POTUS. America was warned many times about this imposter, and now wrings its hands in wonder: why doesn’t Mr. Obama even like America? My first encounter with the breach of Article II was engendered because I could not believe that I was hearing such hatred for America from the Obamas. And now its all confirmed, despite the deniers who still are rankled under the collar because they know ‘birther Obama’ (h/t LC) is the greatest fraud to have been perpetuated on America. And he is sewing the seeds of and enabling our destruction. All foretold.
The benefit of this fiasco is now we can truly see who our Senators and Representatives are….who are sounding articulate but refuse to discuss their own ineligibility (Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio anyone?), or the constitutionalists like Ron Paul who also refused to address this issue when he had a chance. We know Congress actually conspired to prevent this issue from ever seeing the light of day despite tens of millions of inquiries in the last five years.
With a usurper in office (even if he is a Jinn), our government does not exist…it has no actual authority. Who needs to follow ‘the law’ when those who make them aren’t? The ‘separation of powers’ is defunct, with each branch of government and its agencies operating outside the Constitution. While we know the media has been ‘bought’ for a long time, Obama makes it ‘transparent’ that it is fully a state-run propaganda machine.
h/t Birther Report
July 4, 2013
A few years ago, a friend visited the Netherlands American Cemetery and Memorial in the village of Margraten, about six miles from Maastricht. There lie buried 8,301 American soldiers killed in the battles to liberate Holland in the fall and winter of 1944-5. Sgt. Bill Dukeman, 101st Airborne Division, 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment, Second Battalion, Company C (of “Band of Brothers fame) is buried there. He was killed in the battle of “The Crossroads” in northern Holland.
The Dutch hold an annual memorial concert every September at the above cemetery to remember and honor the Americans who died to free them in Operation Market Garden and subsequent efforts to eject the German army from Holland. Sgt. Dukeman, like many other fallen GIs, was “adopted” by a Dutch family. Dukeman’s family in the States was contacted and hosted in Holland, and his grave site decorated each year by his Dutch “family.” They keep his portrait in their home, displayed in a place of honor. Fathers pass this obligation down to their sons in Holland. This version of the original “taps” music is played by a 13 year old Dutch girl named Melissa Venema. The conductor of the orchestra is Andre Rieu from Holland.
Many of you may never have heard taps played in its entirety . The original version of Taps was called Last Post, and was written by Daniel Butterfield in 1801. It was rather lengthy and formal, as you will hear in this clip, so in 1862 it was shortened to 24 notes and re-named Taps. Melissa Venema is playing it on a trumpet whereby the original was played on a bugle.
Have a happy Independence Day!
…err, the Gang of Eight…
Here we have the rino neanderthals undoing America on our dime.
Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world. (1 Peter 5:8,9)
The latest exposure of the spying on Americans–of what we’ve already known for a long time actually–does take the focus away from noticing how individuals are already stalked and terrorized daily. Those who truly educate in this day are harassed for truth-telling. Fly a little too high without enough protection and one ends up like Breitbart, unable to get a job, suffer daily interference with your life, or get
audited robbed by the IRS.
But it is not just the electronic and physical stalking by our government; we are also stalked culturally, religiously, by nationality, gender, and personally/psychologically. The definition:
Stalking: a constellation of behaviours in which an individual inflicts upon another repeated unwanted intrusions and communications”. Stalking can be defined as the willful and repeated following, watching and/or harassing of another person. Unlike other crimes, which usually involve one act, stalking is a series of actions that occur over a period of time.
A stalking horse is a figure that tests a concept with someone or mounts a challenge against someone on behalf of an anonymous third party. If the idea proves viable or popular, the anonymous figure can then declare its interest and advance the concept with little risk of failure. If the concept fails, the anonymous party will not be tainted by association with the failed concept and can either drop the idea completely or bide its time and wait until a better moment for launching an attack.
The grinding attack on our culture as Americans, our history, our patriotism…take their toll. Prayer banned at military funeral services; the microphone shut off on the Valedictorian’s speech about the Constitution, the attack on family and traditional American values such as hard work, individualism, inventiveness, patriotism, and familty— almost everywhere we turn marks this beast.
The cultural war has been on-going for a while:
Add to this cauldron the Obama regime, whose participants and enablers are radicalized in an anti-American ideology, where it is typical to “Demonize your political enemies, then hire people like these [the Chicago crew]…
…and the result is precisely what happened in Germany after 1933 and what’s happening now to us: a kind of bureaucratic coup d’etat in which the legitimately elected government overturns the established relationship between the individual and the State and replaces it with something very different…American Thinker
What is most important to appreciate is the depth of the evil behind the stalking. It is the small ‘g’ little god of this world, Satan, who is the father of lies, confusion, and fear. This evil is manifested in people we can name and systems we can see and uncover. More has been exposed of this network in the last four years than in any time in history; this knowledge will never be lost and cannot be shut up.
Right now it is a spiritual battle and larger things than we know of are being worked on as we speak. And it is our task to be sober, be vigilant, be aware, use discernment, for willful blindness is all around us.
It happened the moment
When you were revealed
‘Cause you were a dream
That should not have been a fantasy, real
You gave me this beating baby
This rhythm inside high
You made me feel good and feel nice ‘nd feel lovely
Gave me paradise, so
Shouldn’t I realize?
You’re the highest of the high
And if you don’t know then I’ll say it
So don’t ever wonder
Don’t ever wonder
Shouldn’t I realize?
You’re the highest of the high
And if you don’t know then I’ll say it
So don’t ever wonder
So tell me how long
How long it’s gonna take until you speak baby?
‘Cause I can’t live my life
Without you here by my side
You gave me the feelin’, feelin’
In my life so
Shouldn’t I realize?
You’re the highest of the high
And if you don’t know then I’ll say it
So don’t ever wonder
Don’t ever wonder
Shouldn’t I realize?
You’re the highest of the high
And if you don’t know then I’ll say it
So don’t ever wonder
Don’t ever wonder
You’re the highest of the high
And if you don’t know then I’ll say it
So don’t ever wonder
Don’t ever wonder
Don’t ever wonder, don’t ever wonder
Don’t ever wonder, never question baby
Don’t ever wonder, is that you?
Don’t ever wonder, don’t ever wonder
Can’t you see?, don’t ever wonder
Can’t you see?, don’t ever wonder
Obama is so desperate to hang onto power that his false flags are openly broadcast and evident to all but the most obtuse. A cold-blooded killer, he has no worries about setting them up to murder Americans. You can bet when he’s involved, he will go to a ‘memorial service’ at the site. Think Gabby Giffords (Judge John Roll’s murder), Sandy Hook, Aurora, Boston. Think Andrew Breitbart, too, although Obama’s memorial would have been too obvious, and the dozens of people murdered during this regime’s reign.
The falseness of these events where Americans are murdered is shown by all the actors that show up to pretend they were gravely wounded–like the guy who faked losing his legs at the Boston Marathon, identified as a faker through videos of his actual loss of limbs in Afghanistan and his putting on a prosthetic at the site of the bombing in Boston. Do you actually think that a man with both his legs blown off would be conscious and holding a tourniquet on his own leg?
And like magic, the media go on a feeding frenzy pointing out the suspect who was never involved in the plot in the first place, pointing away from the obvious involvement of Obama’s hit squad–Eric Holder, Valerie Jarrett, Naps Napolitano, Blackwater security, and dozens of other ‘lessor players’. Of course, Obama is just using CIA assets who have been brainwashed in the MKUltra program, or hit with a drug like scopolomine.
An article posted here over a year ago identified the hallmarks of a false flag:
And we add to the list
Here is something possibly scheduled for April 28–a facebook posting on a nuclear event in Lost Angeles. Now that this is out the city will be changed or the event scheduled for another time:
Do some digging on this please!
What should our focus be on now?
…and the list goes on…
The mockingbird media–even the ones who are supposedly ‘exposing’ all of this, have their own agenda too. Is it to stifle revolt, or to incite premature revolt of the American people? Think carefully about who you trust right now.
The false flaggers will answer to God, and it won’t be pretty. Got your place in the lake of fire yet?
Spiritual wickedness in high places, indeed.
The Virtual Inaugural Address, 2013
My first reaction of course is to ask Mr. Whittle if he would run for president.
And then I remember: they kill all our leaders. And why are we pretending that elections are going to make any difference? With ‘friends’ like the two Johns Boehner and McCain, who needs any more enemies?
A first step for me is to withdraw my energies from this regime and all of its infected parts. They will not occupy my brain or sap my energy. Living well is your best revenge. Part of that living is to practice freeing generations of Americans from this mental slavery. It is an affirmative duty for all true Americans.
Now scoundrels, go from us in peace…before you are forced to leave in shame.
The price of liberty is eternal vigilance.
A prescient article in Canada Free Press by E.K. Robinson asks the fundamental question of our day as we look to what is next:
Why are we pretending? Pretending that elections in 2014 might change things, that elections in 2016 could too?
Indeed,why are we pretending that we need more research to ‘really’ know what is going on? Or who Obama ‘really is’? Or that the so-called republicans and so-called democrats are really the same party? Or that the theft of our nation has been going on since at least 1871?
With lightening speed those of us ‘behind’ in our learning caught up pretty quickly in the last five years, often learning about the ‘old timers’ who have been awake for many years longer than we have. This is a good thing, and, there comes a time when all this learning must be put into action. As I review my own learning it seems I have crossed new thresholds as an ‘innocent’ study of the Constitution in 2009 produced over 700 articles where the initial topic of Obama’s usurpation turned into a full-fledged ‘seeing the forest from the trees’. In 2013 I am in a profoundly different place on many levels.
What now is my affirmative duty as an American? I think you would agree that it is almost impossible to ‘sit still’ with the information you now have…it is true that we must keep educating but have we run out of time for the willingly blind or fence sitters to ‘wake up’? throwing pearls after swine..those who are not listening cannot or will not…they have been deceived sometimes willingly.
As we complete the second month of the new year, I am inspired, as are perhaps you, to reflect, learn, and make a plan for my own work in doing my job as an American, exercising the revolutionary right we have as in our Declaration of Independence:
But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.–Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government.
The States right now
might just as well be are colonies of the federal government, which has abandoned the restraints that We the People set out in our revolutionary founding. The Second Amendment was designed for this moment, when the government became tyrannical, stationed troops in the homeland, and taxed the without representation. Is it any wonder that it is under attack, as the last bastion of our defense, and that they will kill to ensure it happens?
Americans who are alert have exercised restraint; it is those who are unaware that squander the moment. While governments should not overturn for any light reason, the Declaration reminds us of our weaknesses:
… all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.
As we deeply reflect on the status of our Nation and the government that has come to control it, its deep roots and multiple tools, does anyone have any question in their mind about what is our duty from hereon out? Do we need any more debates, analyses, evidence about Obama and the entire government’s complicity in the takeover by a foreign ‘agent’? How about on the role of the banksters and international financiers, debt, government growth, taxes, or slavery of citizens? How about the
growth of the police state surrounding us?
We face a Constitutional Crisis unknown except at our founding. What is our Affirmative Duty as Americans knowing what we do about our government?
Unfortunately we cannot count on the police or local law enforcement to help, they only have to enforce the law and don’t have an affirmative duty to protect an individual.
Time and history would assert that it is our Constitutional duty now to act in the affirmative defense of our Constitutional Republic through the dismantling the illegal government that exists right now and establishing new Guards for our future security.
We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.~Albert Einstein
As far as the problems confronting us as Americans, our advantage is we now know the ‘thinking that was used to create the kind of problems we face’. We have their names, organizations, connections, and what they control. We know what their tools are, including these horrific false flags involving the murder of Americans here and abroad. It is a sobering understanding in the context of what our duty is as Americans today. Our enemies are ruthless and will stop at nothing to achieve their goals.
And we outnumber them. We are ‘armed’ with a lot more than a weapon in our own defense, and now suddenly, our offense. Think about and gather from that. Each one of us that are awake has a gift to give to this struggle, and our affirmative duty individually is to find it and use it. In our lifetimes this is uncharted territory that involves a combination of pushing back, nullifying on a personal, community and state-wide level, and creating new Guards for our future security.
But as we do step up, I believe we have a duty as Americans to do so with certain guidelines:
All the laws, executive orders, bad legislation, ignorance, threats, and drones have no intrinsic value or worth except by those who want to control what they cannot. The authors of these actions have no idea that they are cutting their own throats. We have no obligation to follow them whatsoever: they have lost the consent of the people. And they have no idea what judgment they will bring upon themselves. All they know, like Satan, is that their time is short.

3. Whenever the President transmits to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives his written declaration that he is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, and until he transmits to them a written declaration to the contrary, such powers and duties shall be discharged by the Vice President as Acting President.
4. Whenever the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive departments or of such other body as Congress may by law provide, transmit to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives their written declaration that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall immediately assume the powers and duties of the office as Acting President.
Guts, America, and Common Sense: The 25th Amendment. Do. It. Now.
This is Presidential disability based on being unable to discharge the powers and duties of the office, for any number of reasons the first of which is always that Obama is not eligible for the job under Article II of the Constitution. As is well known, there are other underlying reasons that behaviorally disable Obama, and why the 25th Amendment remains an important tool to be used in his removal:
The Vice President, cabinet, Speaker of the House and all of Congress know Obama is ineligible. They have lied as thick as thieves to preserve this secret. For these people, Amendment 25 saves their face…and ass temporarily. They know through their feeble ‘investigations’ of Obama’s gun running and the Benghazi cover up that Obama and his administration are lying. Obama has openly provided comfort, aid and shelter to our enemies, specifically the Muslim Brotherhood whose goal is the destruction of the United States.
For Obama, it ‘saves’ him –albeit temporarily–from charges of and the penalty for sedition and treason, from impeachment, from charges of deliberately polluting the Gulf of Mexico, and from a lengthy jail term and fine…and the associated ‘shame’ of being outed for who he truly is. He can still be ‘acting 44′ while his ‘disabilities‘ are
Let’s face it. Obama does not want the job, and his wookie wife and mother-in-law want out of the ‘dingy’ White House, made more dingy by their trashing of America’s history, beauty, accomplishments, and exceptionalism. On has to ask the question if Obama is even a sane man? Or if he is ever clean and sober. He looks stoned or high all the time to me.
Your thoughts on the 25th?
What Congressman Dr. Ron Paul describes is the hijacking of the American government ever since the FED was formed in 1913…and its current manifestation in Congressional failure, government behavior, and loss of liberty. Those of us who have studied our history know this hijacking began a long time ago. A ‘hijacking’ implies total control…our government is no longer the one we created.
In response to Congressman Paul’s statement, and in the light of the obvious hijack of our election system Alex Jones hosted Edwin Viera and Porter Stansbury..found in Episode 10 for 11/15/2012. Boith called for Ron Paul and state leaders to stand up to the counterfeit FED, which has hijacked our government (h/t Jan, Tenacity), and secede from the New World Order. The broadcast is long and Viera comes in at about 45 minutes. The show builds heavily on Ron Paul’s video above.

This year, Thanksgiving day also falls on the Biblical Sabbath…signaled with the sign of the first sliver of the moon last Thursday. It is a day of rest, prayer, and Thanksgiving for all our Creator has bestowed upon us, and to remember the work done in creation of the earth, the stars in the sky, and the creation of man from the clay of the earth, molded in His image, the breath of life infused from God.
I am grateful for all the learning and the exposure we have accomplished of the powers that wish our Nation and our people harm. And for the other things we have learned about the political parties–that they are one party truly; that the USA is a corporation–which is using our money to pay their debts; the fraudulent bankers and fractional banking system; the lying media who have proven themselves to be state-controlled enemies of the people. We know that none of them win elections–they steal them. We know who the enemy is and know they will not prevail…for the wage of sin is death.
And I am grateful to be an American, and to be bestowed with the creative American spirit and that essential creativity given to mankind through our Creator. The socialists, islamists, jihadists, the bankers, the left adrift in a sea of hatred, the new world order…they all forgot about that. Might will never make right, and like David & Goliath, the stones will hit their mark.
It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat. TR, 1910
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving Day, stay close to the values that count.

The wheels are finally coming off the Obama wagon. His campaign is having a fire sale of all items; disgusting ads are being aired by the official campaign (be sure to look at the comments); and his Benghazi lies in which people died are being exposed with no let-up.
In the meantime, dogs everywhere are lining up for early voting.

Abdul Karim Hassan is a naturalized citizen who wishes to run for the Presidency of the United States. This even though the Constitution says “[n]o person except a natural born Citizen . . . shall be eligible to the Office of President.” Hassan v Scott Gessler, Colorado SoS
Business Insider reported on September 5, 2012, Abdul Karim Hassan’s series of lawsuits claiming his right to run for the Presidency have been denied in the Second, Third, and now Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals. A similar ruling was issued September 28, 2012 for the United States District Court for the District of Columbia.
The significance of these rulings cannot be underestimated as they affirm that the natural born citizen clause of Article II of the U.S. Constitution has not been trumped, abrogated, or implicitly repealed by the Equal Protection guarantee of the Fifth Amendment nor the citizenship clause of the Fourteenth Amendment. These arguments are the same ones used by Obama’s lawyers in fending off the legitimate challenges to Barack Obama’s candidacy and presidency; by the secretaries of state to refute ballot challenges, and by the media, pundits, Congress and the academics to cover up the usurpation of the presidency by Obama/Soetoro. Of course, the corrupt SCOTUS hears nothing, sees nothing, and says nothing.
Obama and his supporters, the Congressional eligibility deniers, and the media have been soundly defeated and Obama is still ineligible to hold or run for the office he seeks. What is more interesting is that the legal rulings lend support to the charges of misprision of felony that all members of Congress, and all the secretaries of state face in contributing to the overthrow of the White House.
This article briefly reviews the history of this case and its rulings.
The FEC Filing
Hassan, a Guyana-born naturalized American citizen, filed papers with the Federal Election Commission to run for the presidency. Astoundingly, the FEC ruled in September 2011 that Hassan could file papers and raise money to run for president of the United States:
But the agency also told the prospective candidate, Abdul Hassan, that his campaign may not receive federal matching funds because he was not born in America. However, the agency’s decision stopped short of addressing the constitutional issue of whether someone born outside the United States can be president.
Importantly, the FEC made clear that it was outside it’s jurisdiction to decide the constitutional merits of Mr. Hassan’s candidacy, saying that vetting was up to the States:
“This does not mean that he can go and say ‘look the FEC has said that I am a candidate, give me money, I’m official,’” said Republican Commissioner Donald McGahn. “That is not what we do here; we don’t certify you as a candidate. That’s what the states do.” (emphasis added)
Democratic FEC Commissioners had ‘trepidation’ in issuing this unanimous opinion because of how it might be perceived. They attempted to qualify and explain their rationale:
“By saying that it is okay — it does give the impression that we don’t see a problem,” said Democratic Commissioner Steven Walther. “I think that we really need to be cognizant of how this could be misconstrued.”
To address this problem, one of the final sections added to approved opinion states:
“Notwithstanding this conclusion, the Commission expresses no opinion on Mr. Hassan’s potential liability arising out of his proposed activities under any other Federal or State law, including any laws concerning fraudulent misrepresentation. Any such issues are outside the Commission’s jurisdiction.”
“For us this is really all about what we are empowered to decide and what we are not empowered to decide,” said Democratic Commissioner Ellen Weintraub. “Nobody is saying that it is fine and nobody is saying it’s okay for this guy to be going out and raising funds.’”
Ballot Access Denied in Colorado, New Hampshire
Hassan then proceeded to set up a website and attempted to get on the ballot in New Hampshire and Colorado. When denied access by both Secretaries of State of each state, he sued. He has filed five lawsuits which argued that:
… the Constitution’s natural-born-citizen requirement is a vestige of our less noble past, before we decided that discrimination based on national origin is a grievous wrong. (He points in his briefs to Dred Scott v. Sandford.)The lawsuits say the Constitution’s admonition that “[n]o person except a natural born Citizen . . . shall be eligible to the Office of President” violates the Equal Protection Clause of the 14th Amendment.
Hassan initiated other lawsuits aimed at the natural born citizen requirement based on these assumptions, and filed against the Presidential Election Campaign Fund Act (26 U.S.C. §§ 9001-9013) which provides public funding to Presidential nominees of major or minor political parties after the FEC issued an advisory opinion that Hassan did not qualify for any matching funding because he was not a natural born citizen. Hassan argues that the Presidential Campaign Fund Act is:
(1) unconstitutional and invalid, and (2) the natural born citizen clause of the Constitution1 is irreconcilable with, and has been“trumped, abrogated and implicitly repealed” by, the Equal Protection guarantee of the Fifth Amendment and the Citizenship Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment.
Now this is where it gets interesting. The FEC as defendant submitted a motion to dismiss the case based on the same premises that have been used to try to defeat challenges to Obama’s eligibility. That is,
Pending before the Court is Defendant’s Motion to Dismiss for lack of jurisdiction under Rule 12(b)(1), or in the alternative, for failure to state a claim under Rule 12(b)(6) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. (emphasis added)
The FEC also argued that Defendant argued that this Court should deny Plaintiff’s Application because
the Complaint fails to present an Article III case or controversy, and alternatively, because it does not present a substantial constitutional question. (emphasis added)
The government moved to dismiss the case–using the same arguments it has used to dismiss other cases against Obama–(1) failure to present a claim upon which relief can be granted, (2) lack of jurisdiction, (3) failing to present an Article III case or controversy, and (4) failure to present a substantial constitutional question.
The one argument missing from the government’s defense? STANDING.
American Jurisprudence and Constitutional Legal Thinking
The DC circuit court dismissed Abdul Hassan’s case. The judge’s ruling denying Abdul Hassans suit against the FEC is illustrative for the process the Judge followed in making its conclusions. As opposed to ducking jurisdiction and ducking its Article III responsibility to hear cases involving constitutional questions, the court determined:
Because subject matter jurisdiction focuses on the court’s power to hear the claim, however, the court must give the plaintiff’s factual allegations closer scrutiny when resolving a Rule 12(b)(1) motion than would be required for a Rule 12(b)(6) motion. Macharia v. United States, 334 F.3d 61, 67-68 (D.C. Cir. 2003). Thus, to determine whether it has jurisdiction over a claim, the court may consider materials outside the pleadings where necessary to resolve disputed jurisdictional facts. Herbert v. Nat’l Acad. of Scis., 974 F.2d 192, 197 (D.C. Cir. 1992). (emphasis added)
Regarding FRCP Rule 12 (b), the court determined:
A court need not, however, “accept inferences drawn by plaintiffs if such inferences are unsupported by the facts set out in the complaint. Nor must the court accept legal conclusions cast in the form of factual allegations.” Id. In addition,“[t]hreadbare recitals of the elements of a cause of action, supported by mere conclusory statements, do not suffice.” (emphasis added)
In other words, the Court actually took on the issue, was legally entitled to review additional information, and ruled it did not have to accept inferences or ‘legal conclusions cast in the form of factual allegations’. Every one of the Obama challenge cases was thrown out first, on standing, and second, using the measly excuses such as failure to present a case, lack of Article III jurisdiction, or the ‘political question’.
Article II Still Stands
I hope everyone who has been involved in the eligibility movement can appreciate the significance of these rulings for the Constitution, the requirements of the Presidency, and all the work we have accomplished over the last several years. It is critical to inform your friends who are skeptical of the ‘birthers’ or disappointed in the perceived failure of the 100+ cases challenging Obama that several courts have affirmed the natural born citizen requirement of the presidency–that it still stands, and that we are right and always have been on this issue.
Significantly the FEC believes the States are responsible for the determination of eligibility, just as the Article II Superpac, the Obama Ballot Challenge, the extensive legal work of many scholars, and many, many others have indicated. The 2009 Continental Congress recommended vetting laws at the state level were required, and the Article II Superpac will continue its efforts after this election and into 2013 to ensure a vetting process is in place at multiple levels, to make sure the usurpation of the White House by an unknown, unvetted foreign national never happens again.
Please donate to the Article II Superpac to ensure its efforts continue through and beyond the 2012 election. The national security of our Nation is at stake.
h/t Article II Superpac, Obama Release Your Records
“Voices Without A Vote” is a short ad featuring the generation of kids who will be inheriting the Obama mess in years to come. It is very well done with a powerful message any and all should hear prior to November 6. It’s already been viewed by 300,785 people. Let’s help it get to a million by passing it onto our networks.
On January 5, 2012, Dean Haskins, Director of the former Birther Summit, wrote an article titled “Update on New Lawsuit Filed Against Hawaii Department of Health on Behalf of Virginia Sunahara’s Brother, Duncan Sunahara.” This week Article II Super PAC ran an ad in the Washington Times Weekly and Daily to draw people’s attention to Hawaii’s Deputy Attorney General, Jill Nagamine, using, some suggest abusing, her power by blocking the Sunahara family from securing baby Virginia’s original Hawai’ian long-form birth certificate and by extension ALL Hawai’an’s original birth records. Why the State of Hawaii is fighting this extremely simple request spending thousands of taxpayer’s funds is beyond our ability to even make a guess. Rather, we find it disturbing that the brother of a baby who died over 50 years ago can’t secure her original birth certificate. Think about that…hhhmmm….50 years ago.

And, my favorite blog for your reading pleasure, where we will know you by the friends you keep.
Now that the fraudulent “Arab Spring” has turned into openly whipped up rage and hatred against America and the West, our liberals are still in denial. Their power, their privileges, their huge vanity is at stake. That is why they are desperately trying to fool millions of Americans for the next two months. Expect two solid months of Big Lies. ~Denial is Now National Suicide
Obama’s hatred of America was so clear from the beginning that people like me began writing about him trying to understand why he hated the U.S., when for all intents and purposes, he has benefited greatly from all the United States has to offer–education, opportunity, scholarships, book offers…he and his Wookie
beard wife both received law degrees from prestigious universities, only to give them up before being forced to lose them over lies and fraud. His campaign was hateful then and is now, with racist, bigoted, elitist core themes, skullduggery, and thuggish tactics that bring to mind the Chicago Mob on cocaine and steroids.
Blaming others is what liberals do best. It is a sign of desperation, of the breakdown of an ideology that is no longer believed even by its own priesthood. Liberals live near panic because their beliefs are crumbling. Let’s give them a little push. The life you save may be your country’s.
How big of a laughing stock does the U.S. have to become before our military wakes up and takes this clown out?
The reality is this is beyond impeachment. This is a conspiracy of election fraud which has involved destruction of property, Hillary Clinton on treason charges, Barack Obama being a foreign asset plotting against the Government of these United States as Barry Chin, and the premier charge of multiple counts of homicide. I would ask the Grand Jury to toss in an indictment of Obama for violating bin Laden’s corpse in buying it and Obama charged for the rape of Lara Logan.
So what does this distract from? The anniversary of 911, more investigations of Obama’s ineligibility, a disastrous convention for the democrats, and the big one, Bernacke’s QE 3–the next bailout to secure our slavery forever.
Ask yourself who benefits from these events, and then listen to Revolution Radio’s episode, “who are the real terrorists” for some truth.
Obama’s next campaign stop? Leavenworth, Kansas.
As the DNC takes off without Obama, the empty chair…
Article II activists are busy letting everyone know that the Democrats have a problem, and so will every secretary of state if they certify Obama as eligible to be placed on their state’s ballot. Misprision of Felony is in everyone’s future, notwithstanding the poor job the judiciary did in ‘protecting’ Obama by violating the law.
The Article II SuperPac sent its CPD letter out early this week, followed by another terrific full page ad in the Washington Times. Meanwhile, attorney Larry Klayman sent a letter to Bob Bauer–Obama’s forger in chief–warning him of certifying Obama as eligible when there is no proof that he is…suggesting that charges of election fraud are forthcoming. And the Patriot’s Union has a great initiative underway that everyone can participate in…
And while you’re at it letting everyone know about Obama’s Achilles Heel, take a moment to caption this photo!
In another bold move, the Article II Superpac challenged the Commission on Presidential Debates to live up to their charter and set forth their criteria for determining whether a presidential candidate is a natural born citizen. Quietly working behind the scenes to place three full page ads in the Washington Times, and planning more critical advertisements at the Democrat National Convention in Charlotte next week, this is a powerful reminder to the Commission on Presidential Debates that one Barack Hussein Obama should not even be allowed to debate on the national stage, as he is not constitutionally eligible for the job.
Do we expect the CPD to do anything? No. But it is one more nail in the coffin where those who are anti-American and anti-Constitution are exposed for the public to really see. We have seen Congress fail to vet Obama and wipe clean the Congressional Record through the Congressional Research Service; we’ve seen the judiciary time and time again refuse to follow the law, and we’ve seen the media turn into high-pitched desperate shillers for the penultimate failure known as Barack Obama. Apparently the Supreme Court doesn’t have the intellectual capacity to deal with Obama’s usurpation of the Presidency.
Head on over to the Article II Superpac site…please take the survey/petition and if you can, donate $1 to the effort at the address listed on the site!
The Superpac is not done. Key media buys will be made in the certain-swing states of Ohio, Florida and Virginia in the fall campaign to inform as many people as possible–including the electors–of the Constitutional crisis facing our Nation in form of Obama. Send Obama and the wookie packing!!!
Article II Super PAC, Letter to Commission on Presidential Debates, 8-30-2012
RE: Commission on Presidential Debates: 2012 Nonpartisan Selection Criteria
Dear Mr. Fahrenkopf and Mr. McCurry:
As advocates for the Framers’ original intent, establishing in Article II, Section 1 that every President must be a “natural born Citizen,” the Article II Super PAC wishes to extend our sincere thanks to the Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD) for the proper priority you place on the faithful observation of this national security provision of the Constitution by citing it in the first of your 2012 Nonpartisan Selection Criteria.
It has come to our attention that CPD may not recognize or apply any specific definition for “natural born Citizen” in the process of qualifying candidates’ satisfaction of Presidential eligibility. If this is in error, we would appreciate any information on how you qualify Presidential and Vice Presidential candidates’ eligibility as natural born Citizens.
We are deeply concerned with the efficacy of our electoral process in general since we learned in recent years that no known state or federal government office, nor any agency or elected official makes any effort to authenticate Presidential or Vice Presidential candidates’ constitutional eligibility prior to their name appearing on the ballot. Instead, we are genuinely alarmed to find that stewardship of this keystone of our national security is deferred to the same biased, unelected and unaccountable political parties which advance their respective nominees. Furthermore, no official examination to substantiate any party’s claims of their candidate’s eligibility is ever conducted or even sought. For example, it is the FBI’s position that they do not presume to contravene the will of voters, so no background checks are conducted on candidates for any office.
As you are aware, a simple majority vote cannot overturn Constitutional requirements.
This utter failure of ballot security and blatant voter disenfranchisement, still unknown to most of the US electorate, represents a profound breach of public trust. Questions raised by the electorate in the 2008 presidential election cycle as to candidates’ true legal identity have exposed a lethal vulnerability in the Constitutional integrity of the Presidential election process. These unanswered questions remain an issue in the ongoing 2012 election cycle and must be addressed immediately.
Citizens pay for elections with their taxes and rely on elected officials, the media, and non-profit entities such as CPD to ensure the integrity of our election process. Voters harbor a very reasonable expectation that the true legal identity of all candidates be authenticated, that candidates are eligible for the office they seek, and that the elections, and the debates which precede and shape them, are incontrovertibly legitimate. In 2008, the media completely failed to meet its obligation in this process and, as we have already stated, our elected officials do not seem willing to accept the responsibility.
CPD performs a key leadership role as organizers of the Presidential debates and has a unique opportunity now to help mend this rift in our social fabric. Consequently, CPD’s working definition of “natural born Citizen” plays a central role in this unprecedented controversy.
Obviously, Presidential debates are, and have always been, an integral part of the election process. Because these iconic events have fallen under the direct control of the CPD since 1988, we urge you to take very seriously the ethical obligation established by your charter, your mission statement, and your candidate selection criteria to assertively act in the public interest to ensure that all Presidential and Vice Presidential candidates are constitutionally eligible for office.
Toward that end, please be aware that, at this time, surveys consistently show that at least one-third of American voters either are suspicious of or completely reject representations of Barack Obama’s constitutional eligibility for the office of President. A considerably smaller number question whether or not Mitt Romney’s parents were US citizens when he was born, partly because his father was born in Mexico. That concern merits equal examination and resolution.
The point is that the issue of presidential constitutional eligibility persistently plagues the electoral process and aggravates the relationship between taxpayers/voters and their representative government.
Supreme Court precedent, recorded in Minor v. Happersett, recognizes a natural born Citizen as one who is “born in a country of parents who were its citizens.” This definition is a logical extension of the progressively restrictive citizenship requirements for House Representatives (seven years) and Senators (nine years). It is also the definition most in keeping with the underlying intent of the Framers to avoid, to the greatest possible extent within a free society, the insinuation of any foreign influence on the power vested in the Oval Office.
The idea that “citizen” and “natural born Citizen” are equivalent in status completely ignores the fact that the Constitution itself distinguishes between these two citizenship classes in the same paragraph of Article II Section 1 that establishes Presidential eligibility qualifications. It is important to bear in mind that the Constitution has never been amended to eliminate this distinction, and that the Fourteenth Amendment does not address natural born citizenship at all. (For more information, see: http://www.art2superpac.com/issues.html)
Some suggest that any “anchor baby” is a natural born Citizen, regardless of citizenship status of the child’s parents. However, Article II Super PAC absolutely rejects that any such interpretation could be reconciled with the Framers’ original intent. The Founding Fathers intended that a person who would be President after the founding generation had passed must be born with unity of citizenship and sole allegiance at birth. The President must have sole allegiance to the United States and natural born citizen status is the Constitution’s primary tool to secure that objective.
To say that every child born in America is a natural born Citizen is also to say that any foreign citizen whose child was born in the US could be allowed to raise that child abroad as an enemy of the US and return that child to this country in time to meet the Constitution’s 14-year residency requirement for President. By that reasoning, world class terrorist Anwar al-Awlaki, born in Las Cruces, NM to Yemeni parents, but raised and trained in the culture of Al Qaida, should have been eligible as a natural born Citizen at some point, assuming only that his tactics had remained law-abiding.
The assertion that mere place of birth or length of residency establishes natural born Citizen status flies in the face of repeated attempts over decades by numerous members of Congress – all failed – to modify the definition of “natural-born Citizen” to that very effect, or to abolish the requirement entirely. However, most recently, non-binding Senate Resolution 511, dated April 30, 2008 and ironically co-sponsored by Sen. Barack Obama, recognizes Sen. John McCain as a natural born Citizen, partly on the basis that he “was born to American citizens” (plural) which would seem to contradict Obama’s claim to eligibility.
Despite his full knowledge of and participation in this controversy, and his avowed credentials as a Constitutional law professor, Barack Obama has never publicly claimed to be a “natural born Citizen” of the United States. His eligibility has appropriately remained in question since he admits that he was born with dual citizenship by virtue of the fact that his father’s citizenship was governed by the British Nationality Act of 1948. In addition, various corroborating evidence indicates that Obama may have become a citizen of Indonesia as a youth.
His repeated denials and ridicule for those who question his constitutional eligibility notwithstanding, Mr. Obama’s birthplace remains unknown since the “documentation” offered to authenticate his birthplace has been determined to be an outright forgery by the only duly-elected law enforcement officer in America who has ever conducted an official investigation into the matter, Sheriff Joe Arpaio, of Maricopa County, Arizona. Rather than an official certification, it is believed to be an electronic composite of selected data from his birth records and possibly from other sources. Sheriff Arpaio has pointedly asked Congress to investigate.
In summary, we ask that the CPD clarify its official position on this national security issue and explain how the CPD qualifies Presidential candidates’ constitutional eligibility as natural born Citizens of the United States.
We look forward to the opportunity to share your response with our membership and associated organizations.

The crime of the century has been committed on our watch, though it has its roots in the 20th century scoundrels that destroyed the U.S. dollar, enslaved and dumb-downed citizens through ‘government schools, and terrorized generations with war, terrorist attacks, economic depressions, poverty, and disease.
The stunning end result of 20th Century madness is the usurpation of the White House by the foreigner Barack Hussein Obama/Soetoro, in my view, a clear act of war against the United States.
Congress’ fingerprints at the White House crime scene
The facts are in. We know, definitively, that the alleged Obama
birth certificate on the White House Website is fraudulent.
Congress must admit their culpability in this. They faced a
Presidential candidate with credentials based almost entirely
on two autobiographies full of composite characters, errors,
and outright fiction. Rather than step up and do their job, the
Democrat-controlled Congress failed to properly vet their
candidate’s fairytale narrative. Now the chickens have come
home to roost and Congress is desperately evading the issue
while trying to sustain the illusion of themselves as defenders
of the Constitution.
The shock of this usurpation turned to the finality of Congress’ participation in the cover up and to the useless, unconstitutional judiciary heeding instructions to ignore the constitution. Yet the judiciary in particular is that crowd of 20th century lawyers who went to the ‘finest’ law schools that served only to undermine, avoid, diminish, and ridicule the constitution in favor of ‘case law’, made-up opinions with little or no founding in the principles of Constitutional law. The death of Lady Liberty, brought to you by the politicians that scammed your vote while stabbing you in the back, all the time pretending to be defenders of the Constitution.
Representative Peter King shows us how:
And Commander Charles Kerchner reminds us how those two newspaper announcements prove absolutely nothing:
Open thread on the usurper, his crimes and cronies.
