SCOTUS Dilemma re Obama Eligibility....

Perhaps one can sense now why Barack Obama chose constitutional law as his personal field of specialization. It is becoming increasingly clear that Mr. Obama has known all along that he is constitutionally ineligible for President of The United States but has nevertheless mounted an extremely successful campaign which threatens an end run around the Constitution and has brought him nearly to the U.S. Presidency. I will be writing here only about the issue of Barack Obama's dual citizenship, acknowledged as fact on his website, because of his Kenyan Father's status as a British subject. There are other important issues that need airing concerning the validity of the birth certificate posted on his web site and the possible forgery involving Mr. Obama's Selective Service Registration.

Let me be clear from the outset that the constitutional issues clouding Barack Obama's eligibility also pertain to John McCain (born in Panama), Governor Bill Richardson (a dual Mexico U.S. citizen), former Governor George Romney (Mitt Romney's father, born in Mexico) and one Roger Calero, who was on the ballot this year as a candidate of the Socialist Workers Party. Calero is clearly not a U.S. citizen as he is a Nicaraguan here on a Green Card.

This issue of how ineligible candidates were allowed on the ballot will be coming to a head on Dec 5 when the U.S. Supreme Court (SCOTUS) has scheduled a conference on the merits of Leo Donofrio v. Nina Mitchell Wells, Secretary of State of the State of New Jersey - no. 08A047

Attorney Donofrio's case seems to be the most promising among the dozen or so that have been filed in various states as well as at SCOTUS. (A Connecticut case has found its way to SCOTUS: No. 08A469 Title: Cort Wrotnowski, Applicant v. Susan Bysiewicz, Connecticut Secretary of State)

A most interesting discussion of the legal ramifications surrounding the "natural born citizen" issue appeared today at TD Blog. (Also see The Federalist Blog) Contributor Judah Benjamin at TD Blog states at the outset that:

The next time you are feeling particularly sure “the fix is in” and that my abiding notion that the main problem with this Election isn’t a gigantic conspiracy but a mass of small conspiracies and cabals and a vast mass of negligence, incompetence, ignorance and just plain a-holeism consider the candidacy of Roger Calero. You might also want to think about Governor Bill Richardson’s candidacy, Richardson is a Mexican-American bipatride and a natural-born Mexican citizen, or national, under the Mexican Constitution. It isn’t just BHO II, not even close.

Judah Benjamin is not at all confidant that SCOTUS will hear Donofrio's case :

....granting that Roberts, Alito, Scalia, Thomas and Kennedy are all either Federalists, or inclined towards the Federalist position, it is my belief that Donofrio’s case will probably not be heard because the whole issue is, as one of my legal friends in England called it “a poisoned chalice”. The Justices can follow the Law and risk calumny and civil disorder, or ignore the plain Common Law reading of the Constitution and risk usurpation and civil disorder.

That's it folks; "calumny and civil disorder" or "usurpation and civil disorder"! Whatever it is it won't be pretty but The Constitution must be defended and amended if warranted.

The Pilgrims and Their Thanksgivings....

mayflower II

Pictured: The Mayflower II

The following is an excerpt from Pilgrim Story which can be read in its entirety here.


Pilgrims have been the symbolic originators of our familiar November holiday. Legends about the feast have turned it into a mythic event worthy of our emulation. It is a good story, and an important part of our cultural tradition. It helps us remember those hardy English men and women who braved dangers far greater than we have to face today to follow their own consciences and give glory to God. But if we really want to understand them, we must go beyond the legend, important as it is, and try to see the real Pilgrims and the celebration they enjoyed so many years ago....

The people we know as the Pilgrims have become so surrounded with legends that we tend to forget that they were real people. Against great odds, they courageously made the famous 1620 voyage and founded the first New England colony, but they were still ordinary English men and women, not super heroes. If we really want to understand them, we must try to look behind the legends and see them as they saw themselves.

They were English people who sought to escape the religious controversies and economic problems of their time by emigrating to America. Many of the Pilgrims were members of a Puritan sect know as Separatists. They believed that membership in the Church of England violated the biblical precepts for true Christians, and that they had to break away and form independent congregations which were truer to divine requirements. At a time when Church and State were one, such an act was treasonous and the Separatists had to flee their mother country. Other Pilgrims remained loyal to the national Church but came because of economic opportunity and a sympathy with Puritanism as well. They all shared a fervent and pervasive Protestant faith that touched all areas in their life.


(The Pilgrims) brought with them familiar customs, among which were an autumn secular harvest celebration and a Puritan religious Thanksgiving holy day. As we shall see, these two events were totally separate and independent in their minds. It is we, today, who have blurred the differences and merged the two events into one. A secular celebration such as a harvest was an annual event which would of course include the giving of religious thanks to God; acknowledgment of God's Providence was part of most days of their lives. A true Day of Thanksgiving was a completely separate observance.

When the Puritans rejected the old Medieval ecclesiastical calendar of Christmas, Ester and Saint's days, they submitted three allowable holy days: The Sabbath, the Day of Humiliation and Fasting, and the Day of Thanksgiving and Praise. The latter two were never held on a regular basis but only in direct response to God's Providence. When things went well, signaling God's pleasure with the community, then it was proper to declare a Day of Thanksgiving in His praise. But when God's displeasure was evident and events were unfortunate, it was an indication that the community should repent and declare a Day of Fasting and Humiliation. Each of these days were held on weekdays and meant an extra day of church services and devotion in addition to the Sabbath. The Day of Thanksgiving was often concluded with a feast, while the fast days saw voluntary privation.

The harvest celebration of autumn, 1621, was quite plainly neither a fast day nor a thanksgiving day in the eyes of the Pilgrims. Rather it was a secular celebration which included games, recreations, three days of feasting and Indian guests. It would have been unthinkable to have these things as part of a religious Thanksgiving. The actual first declared Thanksgiving occurred in 1623, after a providential rain shower saved the colony's crops.

It was only in the later 19th-Century, when looking back for a precedent for the modern, more secular Thanksgiving of family feasts and football games which had evolved after the decline of Puritanism, that people discovered this first harvest celebration and dubbed it the "First Thanksgiving." They were not interested in what that famous festival meant to the Pilgrims; they were concerned with what it could mean to Victorians like themselves.

November 22, 2008: Victory in Iraq Day!

On this November 22, 2008, join us in observing Victory in Iraq Day.

Let us honor the sacrifice, dedication and sheer determination of American, coalition and Iraqi troops who have brought freedom to the nation and people of Iraq.

Although our governments have chosen to not name any official day marking the end of this war, we the people have taken it upon ourselves to commemorate November 22, 2008 as the day of victory over the forces of tyranny, oppression and terror in Iraq.

Join fellow bloggers and other members of the public in this virtual ticker-tape parade for our brave troops, to celebrate their success, to remember the fallen, and to declare, in the words of President John F. Kennedy (RIP):
"Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe to assure the survival and the success of liberty."

Zomblog has done a masterful job of organizing so many bloggers in creating and establishing today, November 22 2008, as Victory in Iraq Day. Hundreds have signed on publicizing this event. Of the many comments describing what Victory in Iraq means I like this one from Who is John Galt:

Blogger Zombie has taken upon itself to do what our current President should have done.

Declare Victory.

We have enforced the UN mandate. We have deposed, tried, and executed Saddam Hussein and brought justice to his henchman. We ended Iraq's chemical and biological weapons programs. We have exposed the mass graves. We have made it possible for a representative government to form. We have made possible free and fair elections. We have trained new Iraqi security forces. We have sent untold terrorists to their virgins. Stores are open, girls are learning, there is a future.

War's over. We, the supporters of liberty, won, and so did the Iraqi people. Our troops have done the impossible.

Does that mean Iraq is a perfect example of parliamentary democracy? Of course not. Name a war that we won where the immediate postwar situation was all smiles and sunshine. Iraq has a long way to go, but it now has a fighting chance to get there.

In a sane world, President Bush would be organizing tickertape parades, days of thanksgiving, etc. He won't. Mr. Obama certainly won't.

We need to do it for them.

Below are a number of photographs from the past few weeks that vividly demonstrate the markedly changed situation in Iraq. Anyone notice the lack of alarmist news lately? That's because we won!

Said Sisters Murder Case on America's Most Wanted....


Pam Geller at Atlas Shrugs is reporting today that the Said sisters honor murder case will be presented on America's Most Wanted this Saturday (Nov 22).

Finally. Atlas readers know this terrible story intimately. Law enforcement has dragged their feet hoping time would dim their memory and the abject horror of this "controversial" case. Irving law enforcement has been a hindrance to the investigation fearful of offending the large Muslim population int that part of Texas. The FBI finally designated the terrorist father, Yaser Said, one of America's most wanted only to pull the "honor killing" description for fear of offending Muslims by "labeling".

The media has gone out of their way to deceive the public into believing this was not Islamic. It was all Islam, all of it. When the girls ran away, Amina had told a friend that she feared her father would take her to Egypt to kill her ("because honor killings are legal there") and she told a teacher - that her father was going to Egypt to marry her off to "an Egyptian Muslim".

A bitter life of beatings, rape, and psychological abuse ended in death. Although they ran away, their complicit mother Tissie dragged them back to Texas and within 24 hours, both girls full of life and hope -- were dead.

The piece is airing this Saturday will run about 13 minutes long – that’s a lot of time compared to the stories they usually air on the show, but still it’s not nearly enough time to encapsulate the tragic nature of this case. Nonetheless, I truly hope that one of their viewers will come through this Saturday and tell where brutal killer Yaser Said is cowardly hiding. To date, their army of viewers have helped put 1046 fugitives behind bars. I’m praying that Yaser Said will become #1047.

Wanted Man Bill Ayers: Not by FBI but MSM!

William Ayers, Weather Underground mastermind and Obama confidante, escaped The FBI's clutches because of law enforcement lapses. Now that the election is over, this regular guy from Obama's neighborhood is a most wanted man; by the MSM (Mainsteam Media) that is. He will be interviewed by Chris Cuomo duing the 7 AM segment tomorrow on ABC's Good Morning America. Ayers will join the "free at last" ranks (i.e.Father Pfleger, Rev. Wright, Louis Farrakhan) of those who had to be kept quiet during the election period so as not to spoil the chosen one's chances. Father Michael Pfleger has already spoken as we have noted here.

Honor Our Veterans: Veterans Day 2008

A message from Vets for Freedom:

Today, Americans across this great country join together to honor our military veterans. At town-squares, solemn ceremonies, and school assemblies across this county, we remember the beaches of Normandy, the jungles of Vietnam, the sands of Iraq, and everything before, after, and in between.

We remember that every liberty we enjoy--those we usually take for granted--was purchased and defended by warriors; those willing to stand their post, take the hill, or kick down doors in dangerous places so we can enjoy the American way of life.

Veterans Day is about one thing: honoring the service and sacrifice of America's veterans, and passing their collective story to the next generation. These stories, and the men and women who bear them, are the backbone of this American experiment and must never be forgotten.

As John Stuart Mill once said, "War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things; the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks nothing worth a war, is worse." The moment we believe our freedoms inevitable, we cease to live in history and sour the soldier's sacrifice. Our freedoms--purchased on the battlefield--are indeed "worthy of war."

And today, with America still at war, it is fitting that we remember the troops currently serving in harms way. Because, as any veteran can attest, just one moment, one explosion, or one bullet separates Memorial Day from Veterans Day. Soldiers currently in Iraq and Afghanistan are fighting for our freedoms today, knowing it's possible they may never see tomorrow.

Vets for Freedom compels our membership to honor America's veterans this week. Whether at a ceremony, in a letter to the editor, or with a simple "thank you," find a way to ensure that every veteran -- young and old -- feels appreciated.

God bless America and her veterans.

Oh, let’s care about the flag now that our guy won...

Seattle, as one would expect, went bonkers after the Obama win. A frenzy of flag purchases, and displays thereof, followed an evening of street dancing and singing. My daughter who lives on Capitol Hill reports hearing a huge roaring sound emanating from downtown.

Reporters for the Seattle P.I. found self described flag virgin Rosemary Garner who exclaims, "The thing that's kind of astounding to me is I never ever would have cared to own a flag...This is the first day in my life I actually feel this funny sense of pride about my country. It's a very foreign feeling, but it's a good one". My daughter writes, "I am, for the first time, truly hopeful for the future of this great country".

Another comment from the news article: "I'm finally proud to be an American again, after eight years of being ashamed," says 66-year-old Mark Lowney. Another says: "It's just a rare feeling to feel that type of, I don't know, national connection," said Noah Kriegsmann, a 33-year-old builder from West Seattle. He feels that Obama's win will help America's standing in the world, and he bought a flag to fly on his truck, though he admitted it felt strange to see the flag in his hand. "I have just historically felt shame for what the symbol of this country is internationally. Being in someplace like Morocco, and Canadians have their flag on their backpacks -- I would never ever do that".

Such confessions remind one, of course, of the "first time in my adult life" remark from Michelle Obama. My daughter in her report on the festivities writes:
It was a momentous evening here in Seattle, I've never witnessed anything like it. Everywhere you went throngs of people were cheering on sidewalks and from their cars, honking horns, dancing in the streets, hugging strangers, and waving American flags. From my apartment, you could hear this constant roar emanating from downtown that continued for several hours. The moment they called it for Obama, a huge crowd converged in the middle of the intersection at Broadway & Pine. Police blocked off the intersection from cars and allowed the crowd to celebrate peacefully, despite the fact that many people ran out into the streets with beers or champagne bottles in hand. A drag queen on the top of Neighbor's (a club) led the crowd in singing God Bless America while people clutched their friends and loved ones and joyfully weeped. Truly moving and inspiring speeches from both Obama and McCain. I hope there is a place for McCain in Obama's administration as I was impressed by his gracious concession and the sincerity of his words. It was like the old McCain was back, before he got worked over by the Republican party, when he was a true maverick.
I don't think we'll be seeing John McCain in an Obama administration! Here's a potpourri of recent photos from the election period:

Barack Obama - Impaired Judgment

"He didn't have the political courage to (walk out of Wright's church)"
Congressman Nadler (D-NY) tires to explain to his Jewish constituents why Barack Obama remained 20 years in the pews at Trinity United.

At TD Blog we learn:

Conservative blogger AtlasShrugs (Pamela Geller) is in South Florida on what she calls “The Great Schlep,” rallying the Jewish vote for McCain-Palin.

On Sunday Geller captured Rep. Gerald Nadler on video defending Barack Obama’s 20-year membership at Trinity United Church of Christ. The audio is a bit poor, but Nadler doesn’t mince words. He says of Obama’s actions: “He wasn’t terribly politically courageous.” Incidentally, Nadler doesn’t think much of Obama’s reasons for getting into “community organizing” either, saying that Obama did that to “form his base.
