Erasing the Constitution to benefit the wealthy who are stealing America by turning the presidential election into a flea-market sale...and, we are letting them do it. Good-bye, America.

I need to get this off my chest. The single most disastrous day for liberty in the history of the United States of America was the day Muslim-born and schooled Barack Hussein Obama was declared the winner of the Election of 2008 in the United States of America although our Constitution says that, without an exception, only a natural born citizen can be President.

Sometime in the future—if this nation has one beyond Jan. 20, 2017, the soon-coming classless American society will enshrine August 4th as "Death of Liberty Day." Although Congress and the federal courts have deliberately failed to check and verify the eligibility of Obama to run for, and serve, as President of the United States, a law enacted in 1790 says: "...The right of citizenship shall not descend to persons whose fathers have never been resident in the United States."

According to the Emer deVattel in The Law of the Nations, citizenship is passed from the father's sperm to the offspring born by the mother. That law was amended in 1795 and some parts of that section were weakened, but the child's nationality remained contingent upon the citizenship of the father until May 20, 1934, pursuant to a Presidential Proclamation issued by President Franklin Roosevelt (due, it appears, to a request from his wife, Eleanor, who received a plea from an American woman divorced from a non-American spouse). Her child was classified as a citizen of the father's country. The mother was having trouble bringing her son to the United States. On May 25 Congress converted FDR's Presidential Proclamation into law. On May 26, 1934, the woman's son, who had never seen the United States was construed by Congress to be a natural born citizen. Interestingly, a current State Dept. (don't know which one) suspended all of the regulations with respect to the Naturalization Act of 1790. The suspension notice reads: "This statute is no longer operative. Its formula is not included in modern nationality statutes. In any event, the fact that someone is a natural born citizen pursuant to a statute does not necessarily imply that he or she is such a citizen for Constitutional purposes."

Frightening as it sounds, on December 10, 1948, in an attempt to usurp American law (both statutory and common) and erase what the Europeans thought were capricious rights in the Constitution of the United States (in preparation of world government), President Harry S. Truman signed the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights. On Feb. 7, 2006, Bill Clinton-appointed Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg delivered a speech to the South African Constitutional Court. In it, she spoke of the need for national courts to incorporate international law—or as she put it, foreign decisional law—in measures being adjudicated by those courts. Ginsburg said international law was assuming a real position in the decision-making process of the US Supreme Court, but commented that the Republican-controlled Congress terminated all debate over whether or not the federal judiciary could refer to foreign or international legal cases as precedents when considering the cases before them. Apparently, the high court decided to ignore Congress which writes the laws of the land. Constitutionally the Congress, in the 11th Amendment, made it clear to the high court on Feb. 7, 1795 that the judicial power of the Supreme Court encompassed what Congress says it encompasses, and the court cannot expand its own authority. Of course, the same can be said for the Legislative Branch and most of all, in the Executive Branch. The only faction which has lost its authority in the voice of America is the human chattel that carved the greatest nation on Earth from wilderness.

For that reason—the captivity of liberty and the doling out of freedom in small dribbles—and none other, the human chattel of America should also recognize that the second and third blackest days in the history of America wasn't Sept. 11, 2001, it's Dec. 2. 1939 and March 26. 1940—the birth dates of Sen. Harry Reid [D-NV] and former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi [D-CA]. As the Chief Election Officers in Congress, it is their sworn duty to vet presidential candidates to make sure they are eligible, by natural birth, to serve as either President or Vice President of the United States. They deliberately failed miserably to do their jobs.

Over 100 million Americans knew without a shadow of doubt that Obama was not only not a natural born citizen, but many of them like Pennsylvania attorney Philip Berg who was hired by the Clintons, also knew or at least suspected that Obama was not a citizen of the United States—of any stripe.

The proof wasn't in the pudding. The proof was in the millions of dollars someone spent to conceal even the most trivial aspects of Obama's past from the day of his birth in Kenya until today. It's not that most people believed Obama was born in Hawaii, although former Hawaiian governor Neil Abercrombie [D-HI] promised the Democrats when he was elected that he would "find" Obama's birth certificate and end the debate on Obama's status as a natural born citizen.

The problem is, the birth certificate Abercrombie "found" actually belonged to a baby named Virginia Sunahara, who was born on Aug. 4, 1961 and died a day later. That birth certificate was forensically examined by Maricopa County, AZ Sheriff Joe Arpaio's forensic investigative team and it was determined to be counterfeit. Obama's social security card came from an elderly man from Connecticut who died, I've been told, in Hawaii. It is noted, in the article the previous sentence is linked to, that the United States government has never reused a social security number. Obama's Selective Service card (which he needed to enroll in both Columbia and Harvard Universities) under the name of Barack Obama, were also fake. When Obama enrolled in Occidental College in California, he was Barry Soetoro, an exchange student from Indonesia. As a foreign exchange student, he did not need a US Selective Service card because, not being a citizen of the United States, he could not be drafted.

When he moved on to Columbia and Harvard, he needed one since he was now living under his birth name, Barack Hussein Obama, Jr., an American citizen from Honolulu, Hawaii. It was this trail that Attorney Berg was investigating and tried, through the federal courts, to secure a court order forcing the release of the documents which would have proven what the Clintons knew as fact (or confirm that no such documents existed), which would have been the case if Obama's US citizenship had been surrendered when his step-father, Lolo Soetoro adopted him since only Indonesian citizens may attend Indonesian schools. Before his US citizenship could be reinstated, Obama would have been required to produce his Certificate of Citizenship (an immigration document) and.most of all, a certified copy of his Oath of Allegiance to the United States (another Dept. of Immigration document) in which the person asking for citizenship, or the reinstatement of citizenship, is required to possess. As a former President of the United States with over 60 of his former Administration lawyers burrowed in the Justice Department, Bill Clinton would have had easy access to that information—and, more than anyone other than the current Director of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement [ICE] (formerly the Dept. of Immigration and Naturalization), would know that those two forms, bearing Obama's signatures, didn't exist.

Reid and Pelosi negatively (and, very likely, permanently) impacted the lives of 330 million people by violating Section 3 of the 20th Amendment and 3 USC 15, respectively which required them to fully vet the qualifications of presidential and vice presidential candidates to affirm that the candidates seeking either of those offices is an Article II natural born citizen of the United States.

Every American citizen who participated in the Obama citizenry sham, the payoffs or the judicial and/or media cover-ups, are guilty of high crimes and misdemeanors against the United States of America. and need to spend the rest of their natural lives in prison. And that includes the reporters and editors in America's premier liberal newspapers like the New York Times, the Washington Post, the Los Angeles Times, and the Baltimore Sun who have eyes and ears, can see and hear, but chose to ignore—and investigate—the allegations. The reason the 1st Amendment guarantees the rights of a free press is not so the free press (which, according to the Supreme Court, constitutionally includes the electronic Internet alternative media as well as newspapers), can conceal information from the People without the fear of legal incriminations, but so they can ferret out information about government crimes and misdemeanors and criminal wrongdoing by the princes of industry and the barons of banking and business without fear of recriminations and/or retaliation from the money barons.

The most important qualification to be President since the ratification of the Constitution, is that one must be a "natural born male Citizen." Article II repeats this 20 times. The language—both the term "...except a natural born citizen"—and the gendered presidency were carefully drafted in the original document by John Jay (who later became the first Chief Justice of the Supreme Court) during the convention's deliberations on July 25, 1787, Jay said: "Permit me to hint, whether it would be wise and acceptable to provide a strong check of the admission of foreigners into the administration of our national government; and to declare expressly that the Commander-in-Chief of the American army shall not be given to nor devolve on, any but a natural born Citizen."

Barack Obama is the prime example of what John Jay meant when, in Audacity of Hope, Obama said: "I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction." Remember also the American flag pin flap? In that instance, he excused his lack of American patriotism by saying: "As I've said about the flag pin, I don't want to be perceived as taking sides. There are a lot of people in the world to whom the American flag is a symbol of oppression. And the national anthem itself conveys a warlike message. You know, the bombs bursting in air and all. It should be swapped for something less parochial and less bellicose. I like the song: I'd Like to Teach the World to Sing. If that were our anthem, then I might..." be okay with—what? Obama didn't want to be perceived as taking sides? When you are the leader of the free world, you've already taken sides! If you lack the guts to protect the nation's flag, you certainly don't have the spine to protect the nation. (And, by the way, forget the phone ringing at 2 a.m. as well. Or in Hillary's case, throughout the day on Sept. 11, 2012. HIllary Clinton has neither the spine nor the guts to protect our embassy, either. She's too busy getting rich through bribes to the Clinton Foundastion from this nation's enemies.) What difference does it make? That difference!

After a careful debate on not allowing the President to appoint anyone who was not a natural born citizen to any key post in the US government, Jay, Thomas Jefferson, James Monroe and Alexander Hamilton (the authors of the Federalist Papers which explain the Founders' logic in why they constructed the Constitution the way they did, agreed that only the offices of the President and Vice President would require its candidates to be natural born citizens. They appointed the Speaker of the House of Representatives and the Senate Majority Leader as the Chiefs of the Election whose responsibility it would be to examine the evidence of the natural birth of all candidates for those offices, verify them, and swear before God that the president and vice president of the United States are not only natural born citizens, but that they meet all of the Article II qualifications to hold the offices of President and Vice President.

(Which is a good place in interject this: When the Constitution was signed, women could not even vote, so there is no way even the most liberal Liberal can suggest the word "he" or "him" was nongender. The Founding Fathers believed that the roots of this nation must be so entwined within the roots of the minds of those leading this nation, that their feelings for this nation, its people, are so ingrained in the persona of the leaders that Charles Cotesworth Pinckey (a member of the Constitutional Convention who participated in the natural born debate) argued that limiting those who could lead the nation to those who were natural born would "...insure attachment to the country." St. George Tucker, an early federal judge in the Washington Administration added that ".....the natural born citizen clause is a happy means of security against foreign influence" and that "...[t]he admission of foreigners into our councils, consequently, cannot be too much guarded against.")

There is a concerted argument launched by the left since the Nixon years that the 14th Amendment amended Article II of the Constitution which, of course, is not true. The 14th Amendment, like the 13th and 15th Amendments were Civil War amendments which created citizens out of slaves. Section 1 of the 14th Amendment begins, “All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside..." Added to that is the balance of Section 1: " No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.” To amend Article II requires a specific amendment that does two things. First, it eliminates the "natural born" clause by declaring it eliminated, and second, to constitutionally place a woman on the ballot, that fact must also be verbally specified.

Article I of the Constitution did not exclude women from running for Congress, but it did, and still does, preclude them from the presidency. Hillary Clinton knew that in 2005 when the Clintons conspired with two Republicans: Sen. Orrin Hatch [R-UT] and Congressman Dana Rohrabacher [R-CA] to propose S.J. Res. 15 and its H.J. 104 to send to the States as a resolution to amend the Constitution allowing women and naturalized citizens to seek the office office of President. (Hillary, at that time a Senator, planned to run for President in 2008 and needed to eliminate the only obstacle standing in her way—the Constitution of the United States.) However, she now has a new obstacle in her way—or rather, 1,552 of them.

(According to to Title 44 of the US Code under the National Security Act, once the President,Vice President or an official with presidential authority to classify documents does so, that document will remain classified for 25 years. Before the document can be released for public purview under the Freedom of Information Act by the National Archivist, or under periodic declassification reviews, against by the Archivist, (usually as the result of a Freedom of Information Act request), a secret, top secret or otherwise classified document cannot be viewed by those without "classified," "secret," or "top secret" clearance—which include staff members of the State Department or any other branch of government. The penalty for breaching national security rules is a lifetime ban from holding any job in the federal government, regardless how menial. The only reason former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has not been removed from the roster of candidates for the American presidency is because Obama's new US Attorney General, Loretta Lynch, has thus far refused to investigate, arrest and prosecute the Democratic standard bearer, for committing what is also classified as high crimes and misdemeanors—deliberately removing classified, secret or top secret designations from emails in order to transmit them over an insecure email server.

A commander-in-chief who has the Sheriff of Nottingham as his chief prosecutor has the key to every hen house in America. That's the power only dictators in this world possess. Which, of course, is the most important reason why the Founding Fathers insisted the President and Vice President of the United States be natural born citizens to their roots. I guess that's why the Founding Fathers, in writing the Constitution, made provisions for powerful, crooked or ineligible Presidents to be impeached after they leave office (along with their cronies in Congress and the Justice Department) for committing high crimes and misdemeanors. When a post-president who is found to be ineligible for the office of President due to violations of Article II is successfully impeached (even though he has already left office), every law he signed becomes null and void, every federal judge appointed is no longer a judge, and every federal appointee with a lifetime appointment becomes immediately unemployed. But how do the People get back the trillions of dollars he wasted while in office? The least they can do is make them pay the taxpayers back for the lavish million dollar vacations they took at the expense of the American people. Well, I finally got that load off my chest. It's your turn to carry it for a while. If you spread this over 330 million people, the load gets a lot easier to carry..
