It is a strange world we live in now when the disappearance of an airplane raises more questions about “who knew” than “where is that plane”. And the suspicion grows daily and “reports” of plane debris are filed from wildly different locations (South China sea, Straits of Malacca, South Indian Ocean…etc), all of them compromised by bad weather, various ocean currents…and the thousands of satellites and hundreds of civilian and military radar in place.
And the cell phones keep ringing.
First, the history of Diego Garcia, the island.
Montagraph speculates that the plane will later be crashed into the ocean for press coverage and none of the passengers will be retrieved as they likely are still being held at a military facility.
Whether we know or not, we know that the following probably know:
Some gigantic game, industrial espionage, or planned future event is underway…or did the event miss the window? The Ukraine, another interesting distraction. The nuclear summit. What else? Very high stakes.
And the people of the world—men, women, and children–are just collateral damage…pawns on a chessboard.
Infiltration ! (h/t QL) :shock:
The effect of willful blindness on the morale of the US intelligence community:
This is right up Barry Birther Chin’s alley…and our Congress is facilitating this massive transfer of wealth and power to China. How long can we afford to remain blind to what is happening in our country? Hey, even democrats will not be able to find a job unless it is licking the boots of their captors. (h/t QL)
The recommendation to ‘write to Congress” seems like a lame effort given our current Congress, republicans and democrats alike. In fact, it appears that the GOP is set to fast track the new world
odor order soon:
On Jan. 9, 2013, in a little-noticed press release, Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus, D-Mont., together with ranking member Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, and House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp, R-Mich, announced they were introducing “fast track” trade promotion authority legislation as a prelude to bringing up the TPP for expected passage in the near future.
Between the WTO, NAFTA, the other trade treaties the US has with other countries, will there be any work at all left in the USA? Or, will we end up like the 3rd world countries, hunting through the trash for a piece of stale bread? Or, maybe that’s what the FEMA camps will be, Work Camps. Or, maybe the ghost cities in China are for American prisoners. (h/t typistjan)
Obama is so immature that he stomps his feet, gets all vindictive, and directs the National Park Service to hurt as many Americans as possible…just because America wants to put some constraints on his tempestuous, traitorous behavior. Shutting down everything American as he sends millions of dollars to his Muslim buddies around the world. This man and his administration hates America so much that he is willing to kill, to lie, to deceive to get his way. The buffoonery knows no end with the stooge in charge at the White House.
How Obama continues to hurt America:
Therapy dogs not allowed to see patients
Priests threatened with arrest if they minister to servicemen during the shutdown
Blocking roads so that Americans can’t even take pictures of Mt. Rushmore from outside the park
The CIA, NSA, and FBI warning they can’t
spy on protect Americans in the shutdown
And the treasonous media complies with the brat and blames the Tea Party.
Open thread on all things Obama: buffoonery, debauchery, and stooges
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.

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.
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! :shock:
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.
Forget anything you hear about the democrats or republicans, or the current ‘leaders’ of the U.S. government, spreading ‘democracy’ around the world. It’s all a hoax as we were hijacked a long time ago and have been supporting a false god…counterfeit god known as the elite’s quest for money and control based on Guns, Oil, and Drugs.
The illegality of three plants–coca, cannabis,and the opium poppy–creates the worlds largest black marketplace of over one trillion dollars annually of untaxed cash dollars, supplying the ‘shadow masters’ with funds to corrupt financial and civil institutions, to acquire industries, own media, buy governments, fund terrorism, and bankroll wars.
The treasure of American blood has been coldly wasted to fight wars over drugs–Vietnam, Kosovo, Afghanistan to name just a few–where the financiers of war play both sides of the coin. Gun and missile running, perfected on the American side by G.H. W. Bush, Eric Holder, the Clintons, the Obamas…with invaluable assistance from the CIA serve to make money and destroy civilizations. These are the boys and girls who succumbed to the temptations offered by Satan.
…the behind the scenes collaboration between governments, intelligence agencies, big business, drug traffickers, and ‘terrorists’ has lined the pockets of the elite on one hand, while on the other profoundly contributing to the destruction of sovereign nation-states in favor of more efficient economic units, but without such messy things as the U.S. Constitution and its Bill of Rights. Dealing their cards from the darkness, the Shadow Masters create ‘reality’, inventing the good guys and the bad buys, playing a rigged game for power, profit, and our future.~Shadow Masters
Listen to this incredible interview, in two parts:
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.
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.- King James Bible “Authorized Version”, Pure Cambridge Edition
Think small cells, neighborhoods, preparation; read, learn, understand; local action; be the Watchmen. When we’ve had visible leaders, they* have killed them…
Ezekiel 33:6 – But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned; if the sword come, and take [any] person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at the watchman’s hand.
Jeremiah 51:12 – Set up the standard upon the walls of Babylon, make the watch strong, set up the watchmen, prepare the ambushes: for the LORD hath both devised and done that which he spake against the inhabitants of Babylon.
Is the world a safer place? Or are more American arms falling into the hands of terrorists?
Benghazi. Benghazi. Benghazi. Benghazi.
Name one thing this Secretary of State did for America…
By the group We Are Change
What would your neighbors say?
In the wake of Obama’s assault on law-abiding American citizens and the Second Amendment–which is in my view another act of war against these United States–the Obama/Biden team plan to take a tour around the country to rally
lawlessness support for his unconstitutional actions.
In actuality, Obama is making himself available for a false flag scuffing event–and if that doesn’t work, will direct that another false flag like Sandy Hook be ginned up to anger the sheeple known as Obama supporters and Congress to force the demand for gun control.
Don’t take the bait. Keep your powder dry and stay alert. Obama and his handlers are no longer afraid of putting this right in our faces and daring us to act. Remember what Obama is diverting attention from: Benghazi, 2012 election theft, and of course, his ineligibility/foreign-agent status and all the fraud that keeps him in the White House.
We already know that the despicable follow in each other’s foot steps.
(photo h/t Elena)
This is the legacy of the democrats and Obama.
Hiding in plain site, and repeating history.
Only lizards cry out the sides of their eyes (h/t LC’s Mom).
Only assholes give you the finger while wiping the ‘tear’ away.
Cold-blooded mass killings, most recently the slaughter of innocents in Connecticut, are staged at places and at times designed to terrorize Americans, ultimately to force us to
accept gun control disarm. And so soon after Benghazi, or shall we say, in the middle of the international gun and missile running scam, its cover-up, and the electoral college vote where Obama could still have been eligibility/voter fraud toast…America is terrorized once again. And that’s the outlook as long as Obama & his backers are in power.
There are too many domestic and international terror events under the Obama regime to ignore the pattern of apparent staging and intent. It seems to be part of the international gun running – a second part of the bigger picture whose primary target is the general American public.
Part II: The Butcher
For just the Obama regime, this started under Obama with Holder, Napolitano, and Clinton arming the Mexican drug cartels in the failed project known as ‘fast and furious’. Or lets just say that this crowd took over an existing operation and added their own
arrogance touch. A U.S. Border Agent was killed and more than 300 Mexican citizens murdered using weapons these clowns allowed to “walk” into the hands of criminals. The intent behind the operation was gun control legislation.
So having been busted in Operation Fast and Furious, along oame the other killings…at army bases, a temple, universities, schools, recruiting centers, shopping malls, nursing homes, and restaurants, in addition to several individual horrible senseless killings and outright assassinations.
There have been 422 children shot this year in Chicago alone, 82 of them dead. Ah yes– the same Chicago that boasts the strictest gun laws in the nation. And in 2012 there have been 16 mass shootings across the United States, with now sadly predictable outcomes…the killings happen and then the police arrive. The pattern of these mass killings consists of :
The typical reaction is blaming and then a legislative push for more gun control. And the very tangible threat is that other mass killers could be loosed on society if we fail to cooperate. That’s the psyops part of the plan for the marketing of international weapons domestically.
The Domestic Market for Weapons
Eric Holdup seems to have been
an arms dealer in the arms trade for a long time. Operation Fast and Furious got US guns into criminal hands and many are still missing…are they being used in other so-called ‘unrelated’ mass shootings? When Holder is involved, weapons go missing and are found like after they exploded in Oklahoma City; the government agencies buy millions of bullets; the FBI sets up people on charges of domestic terrorism and drones are released domestically on American citizens.
The Police have militarized with ‘excess’ military equipment from the so-called ‘wind down’ of the wars, upon which someone is getting a cut of the profits. Could the ‘locals’ want their cut of the weapons trade? Nothing like a mass shooting with lots of weapons, mind control, media mockingbird stories to stoke the sale of guns and then call for their confiscation. Anyone have any doubt that guns confiscated from Americans, end up on the national and international black market after they’ve been used to kill us?
A Constitutional Defense Force
While the politicians stroll around on gun control, communities all over the country should organize their own armed watch of schools, athletic events, and other venues. This was the reason for the Second Amendment, or the second Article of the Bill of Rights, that
A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.
A well-regulated militia is to protect us from the tyranny of our own government. After the Connecticut shooting my mind was filled with images of this protective sphere necessary for our children in the face of the danger from within.
We have a government that is letting us get killed…by whatever is infecting these ‘lone’ gunmen to trigger their violence. We must now do our own watching, and put our full armor on. You know the story of David and Goliath….before David picked up the stones he put on a whole bunch of armor, given to him by others. He took that armor off because it was someone else’s. He then picked up four stones…
Part I: Foundations
Trafficking in weapons is one of the criminal characteristics of the Obama regime. We have
suspected known that the Benghazi murders had something to do with American weapons delivered to Libyan rebels. But whether Ambassador Stevens was retrieving them, setting up a transfer of the same weapons to Syrian rebels via Turkey, was a target of a hostage plot, or had uncovered Obama’s involvement and had to be eliminated –won’t be known until the final layer is peeled off the onion.
Whatever the truth of this ‘international fast and furious’, the Benghazi terror had something to do with the 2012 election and keeping focus off Obama’s ineligibility and performance. But the murder of four Americans almost blew the whole cover off the core weapons operation and necessitated the outright and overt theft of the 2012 election.
How did Al Queda in Benghazi get a ‘smart bomb’? Was Obama afraid the stinger missiles he supplied them would be used to shoot down rescue aircraft, blowing his cover? Where did the Syrian rebels get SAMS?
The Mockingbird aspect of this has been the endless cover stories designed to scatter the focus…the film, a demonstration, terrorism, al queda or an off-shoot; the generals and clandestine affairs…the fake closed door hearing and feigned outrage…the blaming of Qatar…then crickets….oh the fiscal cliff, the punishment, banning, or retirement of the so-called conservatives… The number of generals dismissed and murders we don’t know about could be large. Something big happened in Benghazi that caused a major ‘change of plans’.
Gunrunner-Obama’s team includes Eric
Holder Holdup–weapons dealing since 1993– Valerie Jarrett, Hillary Clinton, the CIA, Janet Napolitano, and Leon Panetta. They have stepped into the shoes and operations of those before them, with a suitcase full of tools, deceptions, poisons, weapons, money and drugs at their disposal.
Where did this all begin?
Consider this a Black Ops Open Thread.
update. p.s. we know that the Benghazi lie, cover up, and cover up of the cover up, is ongoing. Obama was missile and gun running in the Middle East arming
the CIA’sAl Queda to destabilize the middle east.
No one believes the results of the 2012 ‘election’ and with good reason.
The additional information we gleaned over the last two ‘elections’ is that the voter intimidation and caucus cheating are just diversions to distract from and exhaust our senses to the ultimate theft of every election since the ‘magical machines’ were introduced to the voting American public. And what is the result? The installation of rabid marxists, other lost lefties, and those who do harm to our Nation.
Election theft was so clear in the ‘election’ of 2012. Obama and the democrats were set to lose, and lose big, so they had to cheat. They cheated in the machines, by stopping the military votes, by ignoring voter ID laws, and by buying the media, which is clearly a state-owned propaganda machine.
Republicans also cheated….heck, the republicans threw the election to Obama.
Both democrats and republicans like voting machines and their potential for manipulation. Both parties want to be able to cheat. Just like both parties want to be able to run constitutionally ineligible candidates for president, huh Marco. The two parties are one front, covered with Mockingbird shit, singing songs that imitate and mock liberty at the same time.
The 50-State Project
Howard Dean, at the behest and with the help of George Soros, initiated a 50-state project in 2004 to install democrats in every Secretary of State’s office in the 50 states. He was largely successful. Who counts the votes and is responsible for the election
For our own 50-state strategy, and starting now, we need to return to paper ballots and hand counts, period. These efforts must begin now, either as a bill passed by the legislature of your state OR as a ballot initiative measure. It should bar the SoS from using machine ballots for any election and direct the Secretary of State to make the changes in time for the 2014 election.
Paper ballots, hand counts, nullification, and recall of state and federal representatives who are unconstitutional are our next battles. And we will win.
Make it so!
Just a note to tell you what I think of the fraudulent election and the continued marxist administration…I offer you an earlier caption contest at drkatesview. The winning slogan was “talk to the butt” h/t Logistics Monster…
Never too late for more captions, however, so consider this a continued open thread in the spirit of the Gadsen Flag!

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.
What’s going on in your part of the country?
Pass it on!
Here is an earlier post written at the 912 rally in DC:
“Hope and Change? Nah…its more like Rope and Chains, get it?” ~speaker, 912 March on Washington
The CSPAN coverage of the 912 Rally (yes, I know I am shamelessly plugging it once again) included the speakers, one of whom uttered the above gem about ‘hope and change’.
This is a pictorial essay in support of this keen observation and a commentary on the great American awakening.
The first awakening probably happened when Barack Obama met Joe the Plumber:
When America found out about ‘redistribution of wealth’
but we voted them in, didn’t we?
Satire sometimes tells the truth
To the one obot I saw at the march, I said, “how’s that hopey-changey thing goin’ for ya?”, and snapped this photo:

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.

Pat Caddell is right: WTF is wrong with the republicans and Mitt Romney’s campaign? This was Mitt’s race to lose, and Caddell believes he is losing.
Nowhere was this more evident than during the tragic death of a U.S. ambassador in Libya that was lied about for nine days, because the press and the administration did not want to admit it was a terrorist attack.
“We’ve had nine days of lies over what happened because they can’t dare say it’s a terrorist attack, and the press won’t push this,” said Caddell. “Yesterday there was not a single piece in The New York Times over the question of Libya. Twenty American embassies, yesterday, are under attack. None of that is on the national news. None of it is being pressed in the papers.” Caddell added that it is one thing for the news to have a biased view, but “It is another thing to specifically decide that you will not tell the American people information they have a right to know.”
We can plea all we want for people to vote for Romney, but he needs to cooperate and start playing hardball. If Obama can stage a false flag that results in the deaths of Americans, and find the scapegoat, Romney can certainly step up to the plate and ask some hard questions of the press and Obama. This is what is meant by a mediocre campaign…its his to lose and he’s losing it. Only the massive support of the people and voting in the tens of millions are going to overcome the sure cheating by the Obama camp and those like Karl Rove who would like to preserve everything for the next Bush.
Silence on Obama’s Lack of Constitutional Eligibility
This is the biggest story of these last four years…and the Obama regime in collaboration with the lame stream media–including FAUX news, has successfully diverted attention from this by any number of false flags. Notice the timing of the assassination of the Ambassador falling shortly after Romney began his critique of Obama’s foreignness? And right after more information emerges about who funded Obama’s Harvard education and pressure upon Secretaries of State to reject the false nomination certificate promulgated by the Democrats? Obama surely has more false flags up his sleeve as part of his October playbook, continuing to divert attention away from his illegal occupation of the White House.
A collection of some of my favorite videos, for your viewing pleasure. :grin:
Methinks he should STFU…
Remember, you didn’t vote for him so he doesn’t care….
Nothing like wookies in the White House…
And, my favorite blog for your reading pleasure, where we will know you by the friends you keep.
Anyone seen the new flag Obama’s hocking for $35? It looks like the blood on the wall at Benghazi. Well, we found the real flag of Obama’s occupation…and it only costs America’s blood.
Let’s be clear. A vote for Obama is a vote against America.
Open thread on the usurper in chief. :mad:
