A little over six months into it and the Barack Hussein Obama presidency has been unmitigated mayhem. Obama-caused disasters befall the nation on a near daily basis that one can scarcely keep track anymore. We have endured his offensive schmoozing with the slave owners’ tour in the Arab states; punctuated by his contemptible speech in Cairo, in which the president spouted flagrant falsehoods about the charms of Islam while berating the United States for being a bit churlish about radical Muslim ideology after 9/11. As anticipated, Obama made apocryphal pledges to Muslims about the United States’ ability to constrain Israel.
While apologizing for America at every opportunity, Obama has resisted all demands that he produce acceptable documentation of his eligibility to be president. Common sense dictates that Obama’s willingness to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars in legal fees rather than produce a valid birth certificate should give us pause. Our Founders put nothing in the Constitution about vetting a future president, leaving that serious and difficult task to the people. The most slapdash review makes it manifestly clear that Obama would have been subject to considerable scrutiny if he were required to apply for the most basic security clearance⎯something that is not required of the United States President. Obama’s mysterious past, experiences abroad, and nihilistic friends would have mandated more than a casual review of his application.
In actuality, nobody vetted Obama. We should have known the Democratic National Committee (DNC) wouldn’t. Relying on the DNC to vet a candidate would be as derelict as putting Tim Geithner in charge of the IRS. The American people were obliged to do the vetting. We are supposed to have a non-partisan, autonomous press just for this kind of thing. Instead, the fourth estate collapsed completely into a propaganda arm for the Democrat party. We have always been able to boast that, in America, anyone can grow up to be president. Ostensibly, that includes America-hating radicals who pose a grave threat to our national security.
I’m not sure this is precisely what our Founding Fathers had in mind. A few lawsuits demanding the production of relevant documents are gaining some traction in the courts. Though with the nation currently under a one party rule, it is not clear how the issue will ultimately be resolved. Nowhere is the power of cultism more apparent than when we reflect on how easily the public was persuaded to hand over the keys to the White House to a complete stranger who may not even legally be an American. Obama certainly is not American in spirit.
The job of the United States President is to represent the interests of the people in the United States. Even terrible presidents have historically understood this. All presidents will, at times, take actions counter to our national interest. Barack Obama is the first who openly chooses to act to undermine the United States⎯repeatedly. Pre-Obama, Jimmy Carter has long been reviled as the worst president in American history. Carter’s bungling of the presidency was more than his manifest inadequacy. Carter brazenly supported America’s most dangerous enemies; enabling the rise of the Islamofacist thugocracy in Iran.
Islamic terrorism, including 9/11, can be tracked back in a straight line back to Carter. The Shah of Iran was a friend of the United States. Indeed, he was a flawed leader, prone to despotism but a real pussycat compared to the current Iranian thugocracy. Until former president Jimmy Carter took office, the United States and Iran maintained a stable relationship. Carter couldn’t abandon the Shah fast enough. The daffy left always gets hysterical about minor despots and glorifies the really barbaric ones. Fidel Castro is a demigod to a libtard. Carter’s refusal to support the Shah and his delusions about the Ayatollah Khomeini enabled the savage fanatical regime to grab control of Iran. Khomeini’s government slaughtered more citizens in its first few weeks than the Shah’s regime killed during its entire thirty-eight year reign.
The incendiary ayatollah’s take over was the beginning of the worldwide eruption of Islamic terrorism.Bashing the Birthers It’s expected that liberals will screech about birthers with tin foil bonnets. Birthers are disparaged by those nonpareils of lucidity, Chris Matthews and Keith Olbermann. Some preeminent conservative sages have been chiding the birthers and declaring that Obama is a citizen. That may well be true. But mere American citizenship is not constitutionally sufficient to be President of the United States.
Andy McCarthy explains the persistent questions about Obama’s allegiance to the United States: “By contrast, the question whether Obama ever was an Indonesian citizen is still unresolved, as are such related matters as whether the foreign citizenship (if he had it) ever lapsed, and whether he ever held or used an Indonesian passport—for example, during a mysterious trip to Pakistan he took in 1981, after Zia’s coup, when advisories warned Americans against traveling there. By the way, many details about that journey, too, remain unknown. Obama strangely neglected to mention it in his 850 pages of autobiography, even though the 20-year-old’s adventure included a stay at the home of prominent Pakistani politicians.” McCarthy also poses the altogether reasonable question: why would Obama not want his Hawaii records released to make the issue go away?
As long as gaping holes in Obama’s history are left open, there will be theories. The birth certificate is just one in a long list of documents the American people have an absolute right to demand. We know his “autobiography,” Dreams From My Father, is largely fictional. Thus, there is little reason to trust Obama’s version of his life story. McCarthy reminds us that Obama was a citizen of Kenya by operation of law, which lapsed when he turned twenty one, a fact that would have been of interest to voters as well as Obama’s appalling 2006 conduct, when then-Senator Obama openly supported the murderous Raila Odinga. We don’t know whether Obama was ever a citizen of Indonesia, nor do we know what kind of passport he used to go to Pakistan in 1981⎯not a trifling matter. The chief witness in the State Department contractor passport snooping caper was murdered before the election.
Had the Fourth Estate not collapsed in ruins, Obama’s history would have been scrutinized. It’s conceivable that the mainstream media’s precipitous pandemonium over the birther campaign emanated from the White House. The Alinskyites want to marginalize and distract the opposition. Citizen journalists will be pertinacious in their probing the cryptic past of the most Anti- American president in United States history.
