From The Blaze:

You might recall TheBlaze’s series of reports on Dr. Paul Kengor’s powerful book, “The Communist,” which offered a detailed account of the Communist Party ties of President Obama’s longtime mentor, Frank Marshall Davis. “Frank,” as he is referred to in Obama’s memoir “Dreams From My Father,” is mentioned multiple times in the print edition of the president’s book, however, Kengor now reveals that all references to “Frank” were purged from the volume’s abridged audio version.

It’s an observation that was first broached, albeit very briefly, by Jack Cashill in a July article. And since then, the scrubbing has gone unnoticed. Until now.

“Frank” — whose influence Kengor asserts was key to the fledgling politician and that the eccentric activist appears in “each mile-marker” of Obama’s path from Hawaii to the halls of Washington, D.C. — is mentioned no less than 22 times by name in “Dreams From My Father” and is referenced via pronouns numerous other times throughout the book.

But while listening to the audio version recently, Kengor noticed “Frank” had disappeared. He re-listened to the entire audio book on Tuesday afternoon and compared it to the unabridged memoir.

“Every reference to ‘Frank’ everywhere in the book, from every section—and there are many of them—are gone,” Kengor told TheBlaze in an email.

The omissions are important because a review of the Random House website reveals that all audio versions of “Dreams,” along with Obama’s subsequent book, “The Audacity of Hope,” are only available in the abridged format.

Claims: A website for the DVD entitled, Dreams from My Real Father, compares photographs of a young Mr Davis with Barack Obama's high school photographs presenting them as similar

So doesn’t the picture of one of Frank Marshall Davis’ sons look just like former WH aide BILL BURTON??!!

What I Learned from Obama’s Pop

by Jack Cashill

“Who in the world am I? Ah, that’s the great puzzle!”
  – Alice in Wonderland
A little more than a month ago, I began my first descent into the rabbit hole of Barack Obama’s origins, a place known to swallow reputations whole. What prompted my inquiry was an e-mail from a correspondent asking my opinion of “Pop,” a poem published under the 19-year-old Obama’s name in the spring 1981 edition of Occidental College’s literary magazine, Feast. Having no prior bias going in, here is what I have concluded coming out.

 

  • Questioning Obama’s origins is a legitimate enterprise. Even by their own humble standards, the major media — including Obama’s biographers — have done an impressively slack job in tracing the president’s uncertain roots.
  • Obama was almost assuredly born in Hawaii. There is no evidence that puts him elsewhere. Undoing the Kenyan possibility is the high likelihood that the “marriage” between Barack Sr. and Ann Dunham was a sham.
  • Much depends on that marriage. “My parents shared not only an improbable love, they shared an abiding faith in the possibilities of this nation,” said Obama, establishing the romantic narrative in his keynote speech at the 2004 Democratic National Convention. His father was from Kenya. His mother was from “a town on the other side of the world, in Kansas.” 
  • To paraphrase Harry Reid, Obama was no ordinary “Negro.” Said Joe Biden of Obama’s background, “I mean, that’s a storybook, man.” Enough depends on this story that Team Obama would and has dissembled to preserve it.
  • For starters, Ann Dunham spent her formative years in Washington State, several of them in the progressive cocoon of Mercer Island. It was to Washington that she returned for a year immediately after Obama’s birth, a fact missed by every Obama biography I could find.
  • Baby Barack spent most of his first year in Washington as well, another fact overlooked by the biographers.
  • There is not much storybook to a romance in which the mother leaves home immediately after her son’s birth. Barack Sr.’s close friends have no memory even of a relationship between him and Dunham.
  • When Barack Sr. left Hawaii a year after Obama’s birth, Ann’s father Stanley was there to see him off with smiles. He would always speak well of the black man who knocked up his daughter and then abandoned wife and child — mighty unusual behavior from a father-in-law.
  • There was a marriage license from another county, Maui — a classic way to avoid local notification — and a divorce, but if there was a wedding, then no one attended it. There was no ring, no photos, no leis.
  • Ann Dunham met Barack Sr. in Russian class. (In 1960, people like Lee Harvey Oswald took Russian classes.) The possibility that the Dunhams recruited Barack Sr. to front for a less savory impregnation of Ann by a black man makes more sense than the fabled romance. Obama looks nothing like Barack Sr.
  • No, there is absolutely no reason to believe that the father was Malcolm X.
  • This brings us back to “Pop.” Every mainstream reviewer I could find has argued that the subject of the poem was Obama’s grandfather, Stanley Dunham. None of them asked why Obama would write a poem about his “Gramps” and title it “Pop.” None addressed the questions of paternity implicit in the title and in the confrontation between son and father figure.
  • On closer examination, the poem is almost assuredly about Obama’s African-American mentor, the communist Frank Marshall Davis. There are two good reasons to assert this. One is that “Pop” recites a poem that he had written. Davis was a poet. Dunham was not.
  • The second reason is that “Pop” actually appears to have been written by Davis about his own relationship with Obama.
  • A stronger case can be made for Davis’s authorship than for Obama’s. For one, “Pop” has a different style altogether from a silly adolescent poem called “Underground” published under Obama’s name along with “Pop” in Feast. Critic Warwick Collins rightly describes “Pop” as “by far the more powerful and complex” of the two, and his is the consensus opinion.
  • For another, “Pop” closely resembles in style, language, and subject a matter a poem published by Davis in 1975 called “To A Young Man.” The literary analyst who unearthed this poem — I have referred to him as “Mr. West” — has argued for Davis as “Pop” from the beginning.
  • In each of the two poems in question, the young man is the narrator. In each, the old man, the Davis character, is discussed in the third person. In the 1981 poem, the narrator calls him “Pop,” in the 1975 poem “the old man.” In each poem, when this older character speaks to the young man, he does so without benefit of quotation marks.
  • In “To A Young Man,” the Davis character says on one occasion, “Since then I have drunk/ Hal a hundred liquid years/ Distilled Through restless coils of wisdom.”
  • Note the similar flow of language in “Pop”: “Pop switches channels, takes another/ Shot of Seagrams, neat, and asks/ What to do with me, a green young man.”
  • As is evident in these two short samples, both poems are written in free verse and make ready use of what is called “enjambment” — that is the abrupt continuation of a sentence from one line into the next.
  • There are parallels in word choice as well as style. “Neat” means without water or ice. “Neat” and “distilled” both suggest a kind of alcoholic purity. Each of these words is emphasized by isolating it from the flow of the text.
  • Both poems are published with a seeming typo that may, in fact, be a pun.
    In “To A Young Man,” as cited above, the old man says, “Since then I have drunk/ Hal a hundred liquid years/ Distilled.” On first reading, I presumed the capitalized “Hal” to be a reference to young Prince Hal of Shakespeare’s Henry IV with an allusion to old man as Hal’s wayward guide, Sir John Falstaff. The sentence reads better, however, if the old man, fifty years older than his young friend, says, “I have drunk half a hundred liquid years.”

  • In “Pop,” the older man “Stands, shouts, and asks
/For a hug, as I shink.” Most reviewers simply dismiss “shink” as a typo, the right word being “shrink.” Still, as poet Ian McMillan notes in the U.K. Guardian, “shink” literally means “to be hit in the face with a penis.” I am not making this up.

  • In each case, too, the older man shares his wisdom with a “young man” who may not be eager to hear it. The young man of “Pop” dismisses that wisdom as a mere “spot” in his brain, “something
/that may be squeezed out, like a/
Watermelon seed between/
Two fingers.”
  • Comparably, the narrator of “To A Young Man” observes that the old man “walked until/ On the slate horizon/ He erased himself.” Whether “squeezed out” or “erased” from the young man’s consciousness, the Davis character understands just how tenuous is his hold on the lad.
  • For all his awareness, however, the older man finds a certain drunken satisfaction in the exchange. Towards the end of “To A Young Man,” the old man “turned/ His hammered face/ To the pounding stars/ Smiled/ Like the ring of a gong.” “Pop” also concludes on an upbeat note: “I see my face, framed within
/ Pop’s black-framed glasses/ 
And know he’s laughing too.”
  • There is no reason to believe that the “young man” of the 1975 poem is Obama. The reader is told that the younger fellow is twenty years old and that the old man is fifty years older. Davis was precisely seventy in 1975, but Obama was no more than fourteen. Lacking too in the 1975 poem is the intimacy and anxiety that characterizes “Pop.”
  • In fact, “Pop” hints at both a blood relationship between the two men and a sexual one. The very name of the poem implies paternity, and in the poem the young man uses reflections and mirrors to show a physical resemblance between himself and the old man.
  • As to a possible sexual relationship between Obama and the admittedly bisexual Davis, the poem offers some intriguing evidence: “Pop … points out the same amber/ Stain on his shorts that I’ve got on mine, and/ Makes me smell his smell, coming/ From me.”
  • It is impossible to confirm that Davis either sired Obama or sexually abused him, but this imagery does at the least reek of some unsavory boundary violation.
  • As compensation, Davis may well have slipped this “green young man” a poem for publication. Such an everyday fraud would not have seemed unethical to an old man used to the “flim and flam” (“Pop”) of a world where “one plus one” does not necessarily make “two or three or four” (“To A Young Man”).
  • Trained to believe that nothing adds up and the deck is stacked against him, Obama has seemed from the beginning entirely comfortable with his counterfeit literary career.
  • This chicanery would reach fruition in Dreams, the acclaimed literary success that laid the foundation of the Obama-as-genius myth. The evidence that Obama pal and mentor Bill Ayers largely ghosted this memoir now overwhelms the objective reviewer.
  • In the final analysis, Davis, a pornographer with a stated fondness for young white women, makes as likely a suspect to be Obama’s blood father as Barack Sr. Team Obama’s evasiveness about the birth certificate and other questions of origins may have something to do with paternity issues.
  • Questions about Obama’s citizenship remain in play. His seeming adoption by the Muslim Lolo Soetoro and his removal to Indonesia cloud the issue of nationality. Obama was, in fact, registered at school there as “Barry Soetoro,” a “Muslim” and an Indonesian citizen.
  • Contrary to rumor, Obama could have traveled to Pakistan on an American passport in 1981. Whether he did or not is another question. It was not until April 2008 at a San Francisco fundraiser that Obama casually let it be known that he had traveled to Pakistan at all. Curiously, he had not mentioned this trip in either of his two books or in any prior public discussion of Pakistan.
  • Raising suspicions further was the fact that two weeks before the Pakistani admission, someone had improperly accessed Obama’s passport on three occasions. That someone worked for John Brennan at Analysis Corp, a company with fewer than a hundred employees. A former CIA operative then advising Obama, Brennan is now Deputy National Security Adviser.

 

Curiouser and curiouser! Those dependent on the major media for their news know close to none of the above. They have been coached to believe that only Mad Hatters and “birthers” would dare question the self-serving slop of disinformation that the media have dished out in the age of Obama. Well, off now to see Alice — something of a homecoming for me, as I have lived in Wonderland for the last several years.

 

POP

Sitting in his seat, a seat broad and broken
In, sprinkled with ashes
Pop switches channels, takes another
Shot of Seagrams, neat, and asks
What to do with me, a green young man
Who fails to consider the
Flim and flam of the world, since
Things have been easy for me;
I stare hard at his face, a stare
That deflects off his brow;
I’m sure he’s unaware of his
Dark, watery eyes, that
Glance in different directions,
And his slow, unwelcome twitches,
Fail to pass.
I listen, nod,
Listen, open, till I cling to his pale,
Beige T-shirt, yelling,
Yelling in his ears, that hang
With heavy lobes, but he’s still telling
His joke, so I ask why
He’s so unhappy, to which he replies…
But I don’t care anymore, cause
He took too damn long, and from
Under my seat, I pull out the
Mirror I’ve been saving; I’m laughing,
Laughing loud, the blood rushing from his face
To mine, as he grows small,
A spot in my brain, something
That may be squeezed out, like a
Watermelon seed between
Two fingers.
Pop takes another shot, neat,
Points out the same amber
Stain on his shorts that I’ve got on mine, and
Makes me smell his smell, coming
From me; he switches channels, recites an old poem
He wrote before his mother died,
Stands, shouts, and asks
For a hug, as I shrink, my
Arms barely reaching around
His thick, oily neck, and his broad back; ’cause
I see my face, framed within
Pop’s black-framed glasses
And know he’s laughing too.

Barack and “Gramps” Dunham:

Frank Marshall Davis, friend of “Gramps” Dunham and “Mentor” for young Obama:

     I will start off with saying that I am no fan of Rep. Maxine Waters. She does not use her married name, so we don’t see the favors she sends to the financial institutions her husband is involved with. Yet she, along with John Conyers and others of the Congressional Black Caucus are upset that Barack Obama, often touted as our nation’s first Black President, is not “doing enough” for the Black communities. The stories have appeared in the New York Times, The Washington Times, and others.

      So, in reading some of the articles, it hit me. These black leaders are missing a key and vital element in the life of Barack Obama……. his life has not been a part of the Black America that John Conyers lived, that Martin Luther King or Jesse Jackson lived.

     From day one, the staple figures in his life were Stanley Ann Dunham Obama Soetor, Madelyn “Toots” Dunham, and Stanley Dunham. Enterv the father figure of his adoptive father Lolo Soetoro– the key male role model through the first decade of his life. Sent back to the comfortable life of Toots’ Hawaiian apartment and enrolled in an elite private school, Obama certainly did not savor the same life as the those in the “communities of Chicago”  he would later “organize”. In the comfort of Hawaii, Obama’s role models were his beloved grandparents.

     Grandpa Dunham, thinking his grandson needed some “Roots” guidance, encouraged him to be mentored by a known Communist, Frank Marshall Davis.

    Off to Occidental College, travels to Pakistan, Columbia University (living just a block or two from William Ayers), and off to Harvard University with a letter of recommendation from New York’s Percy Sutton at the request of Rashid Khalidi. Settling in Chicago, he marries his law firm mentor, Michelle Robinson, and becomes a member of the church pastored by the angry Black liberation pastor Jeremiah Wright.

    Politics begins in the home of terrorist William Ayers and Bernadette Dorhn. Financial deals link him with felon Tony Rezko.

    As you go through the names of those who have influenced the fabric that is the life of Barack Obama, it is clear and evident that his background is not such that he can truthfully say that he understands the black community, that he understands the civil rights movement. Obama never had to live the life of John Lewis.

     What we all need to remember is that Obama is not the Black President,  he is the President, and he needs to govern for all. Let’s hope that he stops campaigning soon and starts governing, first by stopping this massive power grab called Obamacare….. it’s Jobs and Economy!!

obama long form colb

     As has been previously posted on JAMES, birth certificates were recorded in Hawaii for births elsewhere, such as the President of China at the turn of the century. HRS 338-17.8, passed  by the Hawaiian legislature in 1982 according to the Hawaii statutes, codified the Health Department’s policies. Of course, a legal review of the legislative intent would show why the Legislature made this move at that time.

     Here are a couple of my observations:

      (1) This is a Hawaiian birth certificate (note the term “Island” in a few places.).

      (2) It has been surmised that it would have been Madelyn “Toots” Dunham that would have gone to the Department of Health to have her grandson’s birth recorded.

      (3) Toots Dunham would have listed her son-in-law as a “Negro”, but probably told the Registrar that he was “African”. This would lend credence to Obama’s “faux” document on FightTheSmears and Daily Kos listing Obama Sr. as “African”.

     (4) This is what Obama’s Long Form certificate would look like, and if Obama was born in Honolulu, it would show Queens Medical, or Kapolaini, whichever story is being put forth in ObamaLand today.

     (5) It is clear from the form itself that Hawaii routinely accepted “delayed” reporting and recording of births, as there is a box for the reason or evidence of the delayed birth.

     Even if this is NOT Obama’s Long Form birth certificate, it is abundantly clear that there is nothing that is contained on this form that would be a problem for the President if it were to be released, with the exception that maybe, as has been rumored elsewhere, that Obama Sr. is not the father. That would diminish the “Obamystique” of the Obama story, but that would be it.

     Just sayin…………..

     I have taken the liberty of pulling from the comments the following post. The author, Interested Bystander, can always provide the most valid points in a discussion, and I found his response to another commenter worth posting as its own thread:

Comment from another: “Oh, come now. Obama does not have in mind “wanting to destroy the country.”

Oh no? Look at with whom he has studied. Alinsky, Kahlidi, Ayers, Wright, Davis, and his own mother all have leanings that would bring about the destruction of one part or another of our country.

He wants to take over heath care. Hillary tried that back in the nineties, and when she couldn’t get it done in one fell swoop, decided to start with “children”. Obama has expanded this program (on the backs of smokers) to include children who live in households with income of up to 80 grand a year.

He has borrowed more money in the first 100 days, than ANY President has borrowed.

He has gone around the World apologizing for the “wrongs” that the US has done, but doesn’t actually name one “wrong” by name.

He tells an Islamic Country that we will “never” be at war with the Muslims. That kind of gives them carte blanch to do whatever they wants doesn’t it?

He is allowing the CIA to release documents that will do nothing but give the enemy of the US fodder to escalate their aggression on Americans, whether it is here or abroad.

He allows his Homeland Security Secretary to publish a report that not only calls out veterans, but also anti abortionists, and folks who like to go camping. This woman also claimed that the 9-11 terrorists came to the US through Canada, and that people coming to the US illegally, aren’t really coming across the border illegally.

He has accomplished his goal of increasing his “Civilian Army” from the current level of 75,000, to 250,000 at the cost of 6 BILLION dollars that he hasn’t paid for or at least I haven’t heard how he plans on paying these 6 BILLION dollars.

He allows his Advisor to go on TV and say that civil protest of his policies are “unhealthy” when as a “community organizer”, he welcomed the exact same thing for policies he didn’t agree with.

He allows his Secretary of Treasury to restructure companies, and fire CEO’s and then not allow the financial institutions to pay back the loans the Government gave them, or at least held meetings to discuss whether the payments would be allowed to be made.

He has ordered the census to be conducted by the White House when it is clear in the Constitution that this is supposed to be a “fair” accounting of the people in our country.

I fear his policies will work, and more and more people become reliant on the Government to fix all of the ills of our country. The more people become dependent on the Government, the more it is destroyed, and it is as simple as that. The Fore Fathers were clear that less Government is good, and more Government is bad, and since the 30’s, the Government has grown and grown under both Republican, and Democratic Administrations.

Our country is heading down a hill that, of course the people approve of, because it takes responsibility out of our hands, and gives it to the Government.

And he has done all of this in only 98 days.

That’s called, at least in my opinion, destroying our country.

 

Why The Media Blackout On Obama’s Citizenship

 By JR Dieckmann  Tuesday, December 9, 2008
It seems that everyone today is asking why there is no media coverage of the many legal challenges to Obama’s eligibility to become president, based upon many valid questions regarding his citizenship. Instead of simply answering these challenges with documented proof of his citizenship, he has chosen instead to conceal from public view, every single legal document he has, and spend a half million dollars in lawyer fees to fight the cases in hopes of getting them dismissed or delayed indefinitely. 

The documents he has had sealed that would answer this looming question are his original birth certificate, his passport, his college records from both Columbia and Harvard universities, his health records, and his original Selective Service registration – if it exists at all. Many inconsistencies in the Selective Service registration form, which has appeared on the web indicate it has been forged or altered. Obama seems determined to hide his true identity. Some investigators are even questioning the identity of his paternal father, based on his stronger resemblance to Frank Marshal Davis and Malcolm X than to Barack Obama Sr.

The electronic copy of the document posted on Obama’s website, authenticated by the Hawaii Department of Health and FactCheck.org, and being called his birth certificate is not a birth certificate. The Hawaiian “Certification Of Live Birth” is a document available to any child in Hawaii over one year of age, regardless of where the child was born. The Hawaiian “Certificate Of Live Birth” is a Hawaiian birth certificate showing that the child was born in Hawaii, and Obama doesn‘t seem to have one. At least, not one he is willing to show us.

How could 44 million Americans vote for a man they really know nothing about other than what he has told them? Has any president ever before in history been elected without revealing the most basic of documents like a birth certificate and academic records? Remember how Bush’s and Kerry’s college and military records were highly scrutinized during their campaigns? For all we really know about Obama, he could be a space alien sent to Earth as a small child. Yet 44 million people voted for him based on nothing more than his campaign rhetoric of undefined “hope“ and “change,” and anti-American redistribution of wealth.

Two of the cases challenging Obama’s citizenship have just been dismissed by the Supreme Court, but several more have already been filed for review. Citizens across the country are signing petitions, blogging, and posting on the Internet. They are demanding that this issue be resolved before Obama is elected by the Electoral College on Dec. 15, or at the latest by Jan. 20 when he is scheduled to be sworn into office. Yet in spite of this nationwide outrage, the media refuses even to mention what is likely to be a major news story of the century – people want to know why.

I suspect that the media aren’t covering the story because they are convinced that Obama will become our next president, and they’ve decided to be safe, rather than sorry. We have all seen what happens to people who publicly challenge Obama or disagree with him – reporters tossed off his campaign plane; investigation of Joe the Plumber, challengers smeared, etc. Obama and his surrogates attempt either to shut them up or shut them down. Any mention of his citizenship status is dismissed as a conspiracy theory or a hoax. Yet we have only his word that he is an American citizen, and that seems to be all the evidence that his supporters have as well on which to base their cynical and arrogant assumptions about his citizenship and our grounds to question it.

Any media outlet that covers this issue will likely be denied a seat in the White House press room as well as any other access to White House staff and the presumed president. They would also be concerned about their broadcast license being threatened by an Obama administration. I suspect what has happened is that media outlet executives have given strict orders to their news directors and editors that this story is not to be mentioned for fear of repercussions by the proposed future administration should it actually become a reality.

MSNBC and perhaps NBC doesn’t seem to share this fear, and for good reason. They have been deep into the tank for Obama all along and have been one of his best propaganda outlets. MSNBC is the only news channel that has actually giving any coverage to the controversy but always paints it as nothing more than a right wing conspiracy theory and laughs it off. We’ll see who has the last laugh.

Fox News, which we would expect to take some interest in this story has been consistently and conspicuously silent on the issue. My suspicions mentioned above were reinforced yesterday during the Fox News Watch program when Eric Shawn was talking with Liz Trotta about some conservative writers on the Internet who “praised” Obama for some of his “centrist” appointments. As Trotta discussed the various articles, Shawn interjected that blogs were widely talking about Obama’s citizenship. Trotta quickly and disdainfully dismissed it and changed the subject which was not referred to again.  It was almost as though she was reminding him that the subject is not to be brought up.

Even talk radio commentators are afraid to talk about it. Rush Limbaugh stated that he is not sure if it “passes the smell test,” and Sean Hannity has not even mentioned it as far as I know except when a caller brought it up. Hannity remarked that he didn’t know enough about it and moved to another topic.

Hannity may be restricted by his bosses, but Rush is the CEO of his own broadcasting network and has nothing to fear except the possible loss of some of his franchise radio stations across the country which carry his show. Rush is known for facing down any amount of political pressure or politician so he must have his own reasons for not giving it credibility on the air. Privately, I suspect Limbaugh takes this matter very seriously but he has two relatives on the bench; Stephen N. Limbaugh, Sr., Stephen N. Limbaugh, Jr. and other friends who may have advised him to avoid the subject until the issue is officially in the hands of the courts.

Obama, or as Dr. Jack Wheeler calls him “Zero,” has campaigned on transparency and uniting the country – a statement many of us laughed at from the start. It’s time “Zero” showed some transparency of his own by disclosing his original birth certificate; his college records; his health records; his unaltered draft registration; his campaign contributors; his true connections, citizenship, and allegiance to Indonesia and Kenya; and show the American people that he is willing to come clean and be honest with us. In his brief political career so far, “Zero” has hidden more secrets from the American people than George W. Bush has in his entire 8 years as President of the United States.

On his To The Point News website, Jack Wheeler has divulged that he knows “the true story” about Obama’s birth situation, and it is “wild,” but he – and the contact person who also runs a major news site and told him the facts – are apparently not yet prepared to reveal this shocker to the public. Wheeler said he will let the source of the information reveal it in his own time. ”…The details of what he told me is for him to reveal when he chooses, not me. I can tell you it is OMG wild.

Any hopes of uniting the country will depend heavily on Mr. Obama’s willingness to disclose the personal documents he has been hiding under lock and key, thereby erasing all doubts about his eligibility to become our president. Until he does that, he will be considered an illegitimate usurper of the presidency by at least half of the American people and will be given none of the respect and allegiance afforded to other presidents.

He will be viewed as a traitor to this country from the day he takes the oath of office and America will be considered a country without a president. Furthermore if the military has any patriotism for America, they will consider themselves to be armed forces without a Commander in Chief. There will be no uniting of the country, only further division and animosity toward the president and the government.

The consequences of not resolving this problem before inauguration day will be catastrophic for the country. Should “Zero” be found not to be a natural born citizen of this country after he takes office, it will be the duty of Congress to impeach him and the duty of the Justice Department to take him into custody on charges of treason and fraud. Those charges should also extend to Howard Dean and other leaders of the Democrat party as well as the state of Illinois Democrat party officials and the person who placed the usurper’s name into the nomination for president. All of these entities should have vetted the candidate for eligibility before his name was ever placed on the ballot.

But there’s more. It would mean that every directive, every Executive Order, every piece of legislation, every “signing statement” and 100% of his Cabinet plus thousands of other appointments would be unlawful. Any judicial appointees would have to resign. All of the above personnel would have to be immediately replaced as would his V.P. who would – under these tumultuous circumstances – NOT assume the office of the presidency.

Should this become the case, the Constitution does provide a procedure for resolving it by placing the Vice President in the position of acting president. The 25th Amendment states in Section 1:

“In case of the removal of the President from office or of his death or resignation, the Vice President shall become President.”

But there is problem with this. It assumes that the vice president was legally appointed by a legitimate presidential candidate or president. If the president is illegitimate, then any selections to his cabinet would be invalid including the vice president.

The 20th Amendment provides for the case of a president elect and vice president elect being found unqualified for the office, but this applies to the candidate prior to being sworn in. Section 3 of Amendment XX states in part:

“… or if the President elect shall have failed to qualify, then the Vice President elect shall act as President until a President shall have qualified; and the Congress may by law provide for the case wherein neither a President elect nor a Vice President elect shall have qualified, declaring who shall then act as President, or the manner in which one who is to act shall be selected, and such person shall act accordingly until a President or Vice President shall have qualified.”

These may be helpful in determining a procedure for replacing the president and vice president, but neither one was intended to apply to the situation we face today, or may face after “Zero” is sworn in. But neither amendment applies to both president and vice president being removed from office. From other language in these Amendments, it would appear that it would be up to the House of Representatives to select an acting president until such time as a qualified president can be elected. God only knows whom this House would select.

Clearly such a turn of events would be cataclysmic for America, because it would lay us wide open for terror attacks everywhere in the nation, due to a temporarily leaderless country in utter turmoil – all due to the hubris and thirst for power by one man and his disgraceful minions.

We must also consider the very real possibility that “Zero‘s” citizenship issue will be ignored and the courts will permit him to serve as president in spite of his lack of proper natural born citizenship status. A precedent will have been set for any foreigner from anywhere in the world to assume control of the United States of America. Imagine President Soros – President Mugabe – President Assad – or perhaps even President Andrés Manuel López Obrador.

This issue must be pursued to it’s legal conclusion. The public must not fall prey to the liberal media propaganda that attempts to paint conservatives, who believe and trust in the Constitution as the law of the land, as nutcase right wing conspirators. If Mr. Obama is a natural born citizen of the United States of America, then show us the proof. Release the critical documents. We will accept nothing less.

In 1959, Nikita Khrushchev said “We will bury you.” He also said “We will take you over from within.” Of course, he was talking about communism. Obama could very well be the final nail in America’s coffin as a student of Marxism and a usurper of the presidency of the Untied States of America. His citizenship status must be verified and this issue resolved without delay or America may be facing a revolt like never before seen in the history of the country.

    

Sen. Barack Obama was raised with several male role models in minor roles in his life, with perhaps the only major male role model in his early life being his maternal grandfather, Stanley Dunham. He writes that in his teen years, his grandfather introduced him to Frank Marshall Davis to provide him a male role model of the black race. But the two primary role models in his life in his early year were his mother, Stanley Ann Dunham, and even moreso, his grandmother, Madelyn “Toot” Dunham. Yet, his book is not about them or their influence on him, per se, but of a man he barely knew and who basically played no paternal role in his life whatsoever.

     I mention “Dreams of My Father”, first published in 1995 when Obama was first starting out in his political career, because in a brief citing, he mentions one item that has haunted him for months- his birth certificate.

    On Page 26 of “Dreams of My Father”, Obama writes:

 “I discovered this article, folded away among my birth certificate and old vaccination forms, when I was in high school,”

     While this brief quote does not state WHAT article it is that Obama found, it does mention that he found it WITH his BIRTH CERTIFICATE. This would have been in the mid 70’s, so this birth certificate would not have been a computer generated document.

     This means absolutely nothing except in the context that the campaign has been dogged by questions about the birth certificate since last Spring, and while they have posted a birth certificate, it is not the original. This statement shows that Obama has seen the original, and that it was in the apartment where he lived, and where his grandmother still resides.

      I do not necessarily believe that Obama was born in Kenya, even if Grandma Obama says she was present for the birth, but I believe that Obama’s failure to address this concern over his birth certificate has created or added to the theories about his heritage. There is obviously a reason that the Senator does not want to show his original birth certificate. Yes, there is no requirement for Obama to do so, but would it not have been more prudent to have done so? I see this as just one more reason why Obama has not been said to have “closed the deal” yet— check tonight’s polls!!
