Sex, lies and YouTube

The political catfight between Senators Hillary Rodham Clinton and Barack Hussein Obama would almost be a comedic popcorn TV-event if it wasn't for all the front page sex, lies and YouTube™ videos that are either knocking off or discrediting other party faithful Democrats right and left. New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer—a delegate pledged to Clinton—resigned after it was learned he engaged in inappropriate sexual behavior with prostitutes for over a decade; and Detroit mayor Kwame Kilpatrick, with a sexual penchant not unlike that which brought down Spitzer, is faced with demands to resign. High profile critics, including Michigan's Republican Attorney General, Michael Cox are demanding that Kilpatrick (who does not frequent hookers) resign his office.

More than anyone else, Sen. Barack Obama should be relieved to see ex-New York Gov. Spitzer—Client 9—his sex-by-the-hour partner, Ashley Alexandra Dupre, and Kilpatrick and his suspected mistress, Chief-of-staff Christine Beatty under the media's eye since that means someone else is consuming all of that above-the-fold space in Section A of America's newspapers that would otherwise likely be focused on the racist sermons of his "former" Trinity United Church of Christ pastor, Jeremiah A. Wright, whose pulpit rants finally reached YouTube.

In the immediate aftermath of 9-11, Wright said: "We bombed Hiroshima, we bombed Nagaski, and we nuked far more than the thousands in New York and the Pentagon, and we never batted an eye. We supported state terrorism against the Palestinians and black South Africans, and now we are indignant because the stuff we did overseas is now brought right back to our own front yards. America's chickens are coming home to roost." In a 2003 sermon, Wright preached on the treatment African Americans receive in the United States, noting that "...the government gives them drugs, builds bigger prisons, pases a three strike law and then wants us to sing God bless America. No, no, no, not God bless America—God damn America for treating us citizens as less than human."

Sen. Clinton, like former Vice President Al Gore did when he completed the marathon photo-finish sprint for the same job in 2000, views the Oval Office as her personal fiefdom—earned, we all imagine, by putting up the antics of Bill Clinton whom she married in a bizarre nuptial arrangement that had nothing to do with love or honor but was fostered only to further their ambitions. Too bad the Constitution of the United States makes it clear that Hillary—or any woman—cannot serve as President of the United States. Even worse, it's tragic that politicians—who proposed a Constitutional amendment to degenderize the office of the President—have decided it more expedient to ignore Article II of the Constitution by claiming the 19th Amendment degenderized Article II when in fact all it did was give the weaker sex the right to vote. The 19th Amendment is simple and to the point: "The right of the citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex. Congress shall have the power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation." That's it. Nothing suggests the framers of that amendment intended to degenderize Article II. Nor can politicians arbitrarily decide that political correctness transcends constitutional law and impute a change that was never constitutionally orchestrated.

Hillary Rodham Clinton, a woman who has never been too concerned about the laws of this nation as they apply to her, stands an even chance of being the Democratic nominee for President of the United States although she is barred by the Constitution from seeking the office. That may be politically-incorrect, but don't blame me. I didn't write the Constitution but I'm one of a handful of Americans who still actually expect our politicians to abide by it.

Does Hillary Clinton understand this? Does Congress understand this? You know they do. That's why politically institutionalized legislators like Sen. Orrin Hatch [R-UT], Congressmen Barney Frank [D-MA] and Dana Rohrabacher [R-CA] proposed a constitutional amendment to degenderize the presdidency in 2003 and was one of a handful of legislators who proposed the Equal Opportunity to Govern Amendment that would allow naturalized citizens of either sex to hold the office of President in 2004.

Barney Frank first offered a degender amendment in 2000, but since everyone knew it was a Hillary Amendment, it went nowhere. The proposed 28th Amendment states: "Article—Section 1. A person who is a citizen of the United States, who has been for 20 years a citizen of the United States and who is otherwise eligible to the Office of President, is not ineligible to that Office by reason of not being a native born citizen of the United States. Section 2. This article shall not take effect unless it has been ratified as an amendment to the Constitution by the legislatures of three-fourths of the several States not later than 7 years from the date of its submission to the States by the Congress."

What this amendment means is that, once ratified, any citizen who has been in this country longer than 20 years—regardless of sex—is eligible to be President of the United States. The 2004 amendment cloned the 2000 Barney Frank amendment. It has not yet been ratified. The States have until October, 2011 to accept it or reject. What that says is that Hillary's candidacy is premature. The globalists jumped the gun by attempting to impute the degenderization the male attributes of Article II, paragraphs 1, 8, 9, 10, 11, and 13. Until the 28th Amendment is ratified, Hillary Clinton is the wrong gender and cannot constitutionally become the President of the United States. Nor, for that matter, can she be elected Vice President since that would put her in line to become the President.

Hillary Clinton is not constitutionally eligible until at least 2012—providing the 28th Amendment: the Equal Opportunityto Govern Amendment—is ratified. In the meantime, and unless the public starts screaming real loud, real fast, Queen Hillary and the feminist far left will have successfully amended the Constitution by fiat. No constitutional resolution needed. No ratifications from three-fourths of the States. Just the glass-ceiling understanding that it's just not politically-correct to restrict the job of President to one sex. But, until the States ratify the "Do What You Want" Amendment, we should observe the proprieties outlined in the Constitution when those who want to destroy the Republic our forefathers created arbitrarily decide to change what it says—and means.

Barack Obama, on the other hand, has his own set of problems—his denied Muslim upbringing and islamic mindset, and the overt racism of Trinity United Church of Christ pastor Jeremiah Wright. Wright, who headed the African American Religious Leadership Committee, a loose knit group of supporters tied to the Obama Campaign. On Friday, March 14. Obama's campaign reported that Wright had retired from Trinity United Church of Christ Church a month earlier for inflammatory statements he had made, and for that reason there was no reason for Obama to resign from the church himself. As some of Wright's anti-Jewish racial rants found their way to YouTube, Obama told a group of Jewish leaders in Cleveland, Ohio that Wright was "...like an old uncle who sometimes says things I don't agree with." Yet, in the 20 years Obama was a member of Wright's congregation, Jeremiah Wright spewed anti-White, anti-Jewish rhetoric from his pulpit and not only did Obama feel comfortable "Amening" his venom, Wright became a close personal friend and on Oct. 18, 1992, he performed Barack and Michelle's wedding ceremony and, later, baptized their two daughters. In a synopsis he recently wrote about his book, "Dreams From My Father" his opinions appear to dovetail with the spoken views of Pastor Wright after 9-11. Obama noted that "...What I do know is that history returned that day with a vengeance...not merely because of the bombs of al Qaeda have marked, with an eerie precision, some of the landscapes of my life—the buildings and roads and faces of Narobi, Bali, Manhattan; not merely because [of],,,the underlying struggle between worlds of plenty and worlds of want; between...those who would seek...a certainty and simplication that justifies cruelty towards those not like us." Wright was convinced that 9-11 was visited upon the United States because this nation supported Israel against the Muslim nations in Africa and the Mideast.. It appears Obama agreed with his mentor.

I had hoped that the media would continue to ignore Obama's character, which has about as much depth of a sheet of onion-skin paper, until after he won the Democratic nomination. Or, at least that the sexual high-jinx of Democrats like disgraced former New York Governor Eliot Spitzer and 7-term Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick who, according to media reports, purportedly brokered a secret $8 million settlement that the city lacks details on. This is a saga that is still unfolding. Expect the mainstream media to forget to mention that both of these bad boys are Democrats when they are forced to further chronicle their exploits as both Spitzer and Kilpatrick may well be forced to face juries of their peers.

Obama's close scrutiny by the mainstream media is the result of Bill and Hillary Clinton's calling in favors—or promising new ones—to their friends at the helms of the media giants as Hillary, who is still trailing in the delegate count, attempts to force Obama to accept the number-two slot on her ticket. Yet Obama is still expanding his lead over Clinton. In the last round of delegate-harvesting in Iowa over the weekend, Obama picked up 7 more delegates. With 86% of the Iowa county conventions over, Obama has won 52% of the delegates. Surprisingly, 16% of the Iowa delegates are sticking with former Senator John Edwards [D-NC] who has not released his delegates or assigned them to another candidate. Obama has 23 Iowa delegates. Hillary Clinton as 14.

And, as the Clintons leverage and bribe super delegates to give their support to her regardless how their States voted, I find myself marveling at the size of Hillary's brass gonads. Hillary has so many skeletons in her closet she has to rent space from Public Storage. Whitewatergate. Travelgate. Fostergate. Chinagate. Coffeegate. Lincoln Bedroomgate and a myriad of lesser known and some as yet undiscovered Hillarygates. Of course, Hillary has declared all of the as yet unsettled Clinton Era scandals "off limits," and even though several federal election laws were violated by the Clintons and former Vice President Al Gore, the prophet of Utopia, the statute of limitations has expired on most of their campaigns sin. There is no statute of limitations on treason, and to the best of my knowledge, accepting bribes from a foreign power—especially if you are a member of the US government—can be construed only as a bribe since, by law, foreign nationals cannot contribute to politicians or political candidates, nor can they legal vote or otherwise influence the conduct of the electoral process, and because the Clintons and/or the Democratic National Committee took upwards of $600 million in what were purported to be illegal contributions from the People's Republic of China between 1992 and 1996, Hillary has gonads about the size of a gymball. Someone needs to deflate them with a little bit of estrogen.

Sen. John McCain has the luxury of sitting back and pretending he's Mr. Nice Guy when the media asks him whether Obama should get our of the race because of Wright's racist rants from the pulpit. Of course, McCain doesn't want that, and said so. While the most recent Rasmussen Poll shows him beating both Hillary and Obama, the poll shows a fragile one point difference in the McCain-Clinton race and a five point difference between McCain and Obama. McCain can't beat Hillary.

After all, according to Hillary's TV commercial that shows the White House phone ringing at 3 a.m., Hillary has all of this national security and foreign service experience. What Hillary—and Bill—will never mention even in private company is that Hillary did not have security clearance and was never allowed in the Oval Office when national security issues were discussed and when decisions were made. So, having either Hillary or Obama answer the phone means only one thing—neither have the experience to answer the phone. Both should let it go to voice mail for the next president to answer.

Clinton's spinmeisters has done a good job of convincing the blind, deaf and dumb that she has 35 years of experience (although she has never said doing what), But the truth lies somewhere on the other side of the Yellow Brick Road. The Democratic race this time around is a contest between midgets finaced by special interest giants who see 2008 as their opportunity to create world government.

This should have been the easiest election in decades for the Democrats to win. It should have been a reverse of the Carter defeat in 1980 and the Mondale-Ferraro debacle in 1984—(there's that date again). Had the Democrats been smart (and nobody ever accuses of them of that, the GOP is just more stupid) and put up former Sen. Zell Miller [D-GA] as their standard-bearer, Miller would have done in 2008 and 2012 what Reagan did in 1980 and 1984. And, when people spoke about the Reagan Democrats they would also have to talk about the Miller Republicans. But, we don't have Zell Miller. We have Obama and Hillary. And Hillary had Mondale's 1984—there's that date again—running mate Geraldine Ferraro working in her campaign. She did, that is, until Ferraro flubbed by saying that Barack Obama would not be doing so well if he wasn't black.

Had someone even loosely associated with the McCain Campaign—even though McCain has locked up the nomination—made a racial remark about former Ambassador Alan Keyes who was running for the GOP nomination, the liberal media would be demanding that McCain drop from the race. I sure will be glad when this fiasco is over. And I hope the Democrats nominate Barack Obama for a couple of reasons. First, the Constitution of the United States says Hillary can't be nominated unless the proposed 28th Amendment, the Equal Opportunity to Govern Amendment, is ratified in the next few days. Second, I think the Clintons need to answer for Whitewatergate. Travelgate. Fostergate. Chinagate. Coffeegate. Lincoln Bedroomgate and a myriad of lesser known gates even if the statute of limitations has expired. And third, I don't have too much confidence in a man who only carried between 30% to 35% of his own party's votes winning this election. Obama—who baggage is that he is no more qualifed to be president than me—has no experience, no credentials, and no hope of changing America except to make it an integral part of the third world.

Wisdom tells me that since the Republican nomination is already settled, every American who would othewise vote in the remaining primaries (or sit at home and drink beer as the results from those primaries trickle in), get out and cast your primary vote for Barack Obama. Speaking out against Hillary in the remaining primaries will save us four years of screaming about the illegal antics of the new Clinton co-presidency. Maybe the Democrats will wake up and all of the super delegates will pledge their votes to Zell Miller, throw the nomination to the floor and pick Miller as their standard-bearer. He is a Democrat I would vote for.

Well, once again, you have my two cents worth on this subject.
