Obama Could Not Pass a Background Check – Tea Party Nation

Obama Could Not Pass a Background Check – Tea Party Nation.

By Alan Caruba

President Barack Obama could not pass a background check if he was applying for a gun permit or a job. Why has this man been allowed to remain in office or take the oath for a second time?

During the 2008 campaign, it was known that:

His official, long form birth records were SEALED.His Occidental College records were SEALED.His Columbia College records were SEALED.His Harvard College records were SEALED.His College thesis – SEALED. His Harvard Law Review articles – SEALED. His Indonesian adoption records – SEALED. His passport file – SEALED. His medical records – Unavailable. His baptism records – Unavailable. His papers from his service in the Illinois legislature – Unavailable. His Illinois State Bar Association records – Unavailable.

The birth certificate that the White House released is reputed by document experts to be false.

The Social Security number he has used was issued to someone else. He could not pass an E-Verify test. The first three numbers of his Social Security ID are reserved for applicants with Connecticut addresses, 040-049. The number was issued between 1977 and 1979. Obama’s earliest employment reportedly was in 1975 at a Baskin-Robbins in Oahu, Hawaii.

Many of the “facts” he cited in his two memoirs have turned out to be questionable, if not outright lies; particularly as regards his birth father, a citizen of Kenya at the time of his birth.

A job applicant with Obama’s paper trail would not even pass the smell test, but this man was elected and reelected. The role of journalism is to vet the credentials of anyone running for public office, let alone the highest office in the land. Instead, he has been protected against all inquiries and those making them have been called “birthers” or simply ignored.

Obama so routinely lies that keeping track of them would require a team of full-time archivists.

In August 2009 he said, “I have not said I was a single-payer supporter”, but in June 2003, as an Illinois state senator, he said, “I happen to be a proponent of a single-payer universal health care system.”

In March 2006, he said “Leadership means the buck stops here…I therefore intend to oppose the effort to increase America’s debt limit.” He is now into his second political battle to raise the debt limit. In July 2011, he said “It is not acceptable for us not to raise the debt ceiling and to allow the U.S. government to default.”

In response to a 1996 questionnaire he said “I favor legalizing same-sex marriages and would fight efforts to prohibit such marriages, but in November 2008 he said, “I believe that marriage is between a man and a woman. I am not in favor of gay marriage.”

He spent his first term blaming the nation’s economic ills on his predecessor, George W. Bush, saying in July 2008, that “he added $4 trillion by his lonesome, so that we now have over $9 trillion in debt that we are going to have to pay back. That’s irresponsible. It’s unpatriotic.” Today, the debt stands at more than $16 trillion because Obama added more to the debt than all previous presidents combined. For the first time in U.S. history, our credit rating was reduced and rating services are warning they will reduce it again.

He has a record of using executive orders to bypass the constitutional powers and duties of Congress. His most recent effort was 23 such orders regarding gun control at the same time Americans are buying guns as fast as they can, fearing the loss of the right to own and bear arms. This is the same President who just signed a law granting him and his family lifetime Secret Service protection.

He used “executive privilege” to cover-up the “Fast and Furious” scandal in which guns were allowed to be purchased and transported for use by Mexican drug cartel members.

He lied about the attack in Benghazi, Libya that killed a U.S. ambassador and encouraged members of his staff to spread the lie that it was “spontaneous” and the result of a video no one has seen.

He and the Democratic Party imposed “Obamacare” on the nation and its passage is already undermining the provision of healthcare services, driving up the cost of health insurance, and causing physicians and the providers of testing and other services to leave the profession and close their doors.

He no longer can blame President Bush, so now he blames the Republican Party that has offered solutions to the nation’s economic crisis that has worsened every day he has been in office. His foreign policy has consisted of apologizing for America and standing aside while one nation after another in the Middle East and northern Africa has fallen under the control of Islamist radicals. He is doing nothing to avoid the sequestration cuts that would harm national defense and a range of other government functions.

He has failed us. Congress has failed us.

It has taken four years for a case challenging his right to hold office and the Supreme Court has scheduled a “conference” in February that might decide to ignore a current case.

The mainstream media has failed us and we only hope the courts will not fail us.

He should not be administered the oath of office for a second time.

Mr. Obama release your records – Tea Party Nation

 

Mr. Obama release your records – Tea Party Nation.

Posted by Judson Phillips

The Obama campaign and the Party of Treason continue to demand Mitt Romney release his tax records so they can pull them apart and continue to distort facts and lie about Romney.

 Obama has released almost none of his records.  There is one record that everyone should be demanding that Obama release.   What is it and why is it so important?

 There are a lot of records that Americans should want to see from Barack Obama.  To start with, there are his records from Occidental College so that the allegation that Obama attended that school on a scholarship reserved for foreign students can be resolved.   Another record that Americans should be demanding Obama release are his records from Columbia and Harvard.

 How does someone who is a self-admitted poor student, get into two of the most prestigious schools in America?  Obama was admitted to Harvard law.  Generally you need to have almost a perfect 4.0 to even have a shot at Harvard.  Anyone want to bet Obama’s GPA was nowhere near that?

 So how did he get in?

 The important records that everyone should demand Obama release are his medical records.  George Bush, John McCain, even John Kerry and Bill Clinton released voluminous medical records.

 What did Obama release in 2008?  It was a one page statement from a doctor saying he was in good physical condition.

 That was it.

 Why is this so important?

 Obama by his own admission was a very heavy marijuana user in his youth.  He has also admitted to using cocaine, though he denies using drugs such as heroin.  He also says he was a significant drinker.

 Why is this important?

 Because these are all symptoms of addiction.

 A man named Larry Sinclair claims that in 1999 he and Barack Obama had sex and then smoked crack cocaine.  This is 1999, nine years before Obama would run for President. 

 Crack cocaine is very addictive.   It is very destructive.  Addiction specialist will tell you that a crack addiction is very tough to break.

 Is Obama an addict?  Was he an addict in the past?

 These are all legitimate questions to ask about a man who has his hands on the nuclear trigger.

 Why is Obama hiding these records and why isn’t the drive by media asking these questions.   Why aren’t Republicans demanding the answers to these questions, instead of telling Mitt Romney he needs to play into Obama’s hands by releasing more tax returns?

 While Obama promised his administration would be the most transparent in history; that was simply another Obama lie. 

 Every time Obama demands that Mitt Romney release more tax returns, the Romney campaign needs to turn around and ask when Obama is going to release his medical records, his college records and his attorney discipline records. 

 The Romney campaign may have finally learned that they are not going to get anywhere by playing nice.  They have an opponent that wants to go down into the gutter for a fight and believes in winning at all costs. 

 Romney may have finally learned not to play their game.

 Let’s hope so.

 Meanwhile, every Republican should quit telling Mitt Romney to release more records, giving Obama more ammunition to lie about him and start demanding that Obama release his records.

‘Idiot Missing From Kenyan Village, Film at 11’ | Bob McCarty Writes | Best Law Practice Info.

EDITOR’S NOTE:  Though Hillary Clinton helped make famous the Big Brother-endorsed saying, “It takes a village to raise a child,” Paul R. Hollrah has discovered some important news about that village.  He shares it in the guest post below.  Enjoy!

By Paul R. Hollrah, Guest Blogger

If the village of Nyang’oma Kogelo, Nyanza Province, Kenya, is the ancestral home of Barack Obama, then we are justified in announcing that villagers can no longer claim to have misplaced their idiot.  He is alive and well and is living at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, D.C.

Although Obama claims to have attended Occidental College in Los Angeles for two years, Columbia University in New York for two years and Harvard Law School in Cambridge, Mass., for three years, we have yet to see proof of any of that.  We are told that he became president of the Harvard Law Review in his second year of law school and that he graduated magna cum laude in 1991.  Again, we have no proof of any of that… no documentation, no proof of legal scholarship, no published articles, no grades, nothing.  All we have is the word of a man who claims to have campaigned in 57 states and who doesn’t know the difference between a medical corpsman and a medical corpse-man.

With little written material to go on, the best evidence we have of Obama’s inability to express himself through the written word can be found in an August 2011 article, Early Obama Letter Confirms Inability to Write, by literary expert Jack Cashill.

Cashill tells us that, on Nov. 16, 1990, Obama published a letter in the The Record, an independent law school newspaper at Harvard, responding to a letter from a student named Jim Chen in which Chen criticized the Law Review’s affirmative action policies.  Chen argued that affirmative action stigmatizes its presumed beneficiaries.

As Cashill describes the Obama response, it was “… classic Obama: patronizing, dishonest, syntactically muddled, and grammatically challenged.”  Cashill points out that, in Obama’s very first sentence, he opens with what is quite common in his writing… his inability to make subject and predicate agree.  Obama wrote: “Since the merits of the Law Review’s selection policy has been the subject of commentary for the last three issues… ”

Cashill remarks that, “If Obama were as smart as a fifth-grader, he would know that ‘merits… have.’” As it was, Obama’s sentence construction was just one step up from the ebonic version:  “Since the merits of the Law Review’s selection policy be the subject of…”

Although the Obama letter was fewer than a thousand words long, Obama repeated the subject-predicate error at least two more times.  Cashill points out that in one sentence he couldn’t make up his mind which verb option was correct so he tried both.  He wrote:  “Approximately half of this first batch is chosen … the other half are selected …”

If these are indicative of Obama’s writing skills, then we can understand his need to keep all of his college and university writings hidden from public view.  How does a man graduate magna cum laude from Harvard Law School when he couldn’t possibly earn a passing grade in English Composition at the North Cupcake Community College in North Cupcake, Ind?  Knowing that Obama and Bill O’Reilly are both Harvard graduates does little to support the school’s lofty reputation.

However, Obama’s extemporaneous speaking skills are apparently no better.  Let us not forget what happens when he is speaking without a teleprompter and the electronic device at the other end of his earpiece fails to put the necessary words into his mouth.  In one such instance he said, What they’ll say is, ‘Well it costs too much money,’ but you know what? It would cost, about. It… it… it would cost about the same as what we would spend.  It.  Over the course of 10 years it would cost what it would costs us (nervous laughter). All right.  Okay.  We’re going to.  It… It would cost us about the same as it would cost for about… hold on one second.  I can’t hear myself.  But I’m glad you’re fired up, though.  I’m glad.” 

But it’s one thing for him to embarrass himself in front of a friendly crowd of Kool-Ade drinkers (i.e. the White House press corps).  It is another thing entirely to embarrass himself… and the entire nation… in front of visiting heads of state and the international press corps.

In a recent Rose Garden press conference, Obama stood between Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper and Mexican President Felipe Calderon.  We were all profoundly embarrassed when Obama used that forum to show disrespect for the U.S. Supreme Court.  In response to a question about the Supreme Court deliberations on his ObamaCare boondoggle, he said (at the 24:22-mark of the video above), “I am confident the Supreme Court will not take what would be an unprecedented, extraordinary step of overturning a law that was passed by a strong majority of a democratically-elected Congress.

“I just remind conservative commentators that for years we have heard the biggest problem on the bench was judicial activism or a lack of judicial restraint.  That an unelected group of people would somehow overturn a duly constituted and passed law.  Well, this is a good example and I am pretty confident that this Court will recognize that and not take that step.”

Not only does Obama display a monumental ignorance of the genius of the system of checks and balances provided by our three co-equal branches of government, he displays a frightening level of ignorance of what constitutes judicial activism.  As a dedicated Marxist, he prefers to ignore the fact that almost every instance of judicial activism in modern times has occurred when liberal justices have strained to find previously undiscovered rights within the Constitution.

Nor does he appear to understand that the most glaring example of judicial restraint in recent memory has been the refusal of conservatives on the Roberts court to hear evidence of his own failure to meet the “natural born Citizen” standard of the United States Constitution.

However, the flap over Obama’s ignorance of constitutional principles was not all bad in that it produced at least one living human being who actually knew Obama before he became president of the United States.  Most Americans are understandably curious about this man who came out of nowhere to occupy the world’s most powerful office.  Who were his friends as a boy and as a young man?  Did he have girlfriends?  Who were his college classmates and his roommates?  When he lectured at the University of Chicago Law School, who were his students?

Now, in the wake of his humiliating Rose Garden tirade, it appears that we have a partial answer to one of these questions.  A former University of Chicago law student, Thom Lambert, now a University of Missouri law professor, has come forward to say that he studied constitutional law under Obama at the University of Chicago.  But Lambert’s comments are not the unqualified endorsement that Obama would want to hear.  Lambert said, “Of course, even a (constitutional law) professor focusing on the Bill of Rights should know that the principle of judicial review has been alive and well since 1803, so I still feel like my educational credentials have been tarnished a bit by the President’s ‘unprecedented, extraordinary’ remarks.”

Obama should be profoundly embarrassed to know that the only person ever to come forward to confess a previous teacher-student relationship with him is embarrassed by the relationship.

Jimmy Carter

As the 44th president of the United States, Obama has clearly stolen the title, “worst president in American history” from the previous title holder, Democrat Jimmy Carter.  So it is not surprising to find that a Newsmax blogger John L. Perry has gone far out on a limb to suggest that a military coup may be preferable to a second term for Obama.

In a Sept. 30, 2009, article titled, Obama Risks a Domestic Military Intervention, Perry wrote, “What happens if the generals Obama sent to win the Afghan war are told by the president (who now says, ‘I’m not interested in victory’) that they will be denied troops they must have to win?  Do they follow orders they cannot carry out, consistent with their oath of duty?  Do they resign en masse?  Or do they soldier on, hoping the 2010 congressional elections will reverse the situation?  Do they dare gamble the national survival on such political whims…?”

But talk of a military coup against a sitting president… even one known to be occupying the office illegally… is dangerous talk.  We are a nation of laws, not a “banana republic.”

A far more practical solution is proposed in an April 8, 2012, article by Commander Charles Kerchner (USN, Ret.).  Commander Kerchner reminds us that all military officers are required to swear the following oath upon receiving their commissions:  I (name), having been appointed a (rank) in the United States (branch of service), do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the office upon which I am about to enter. So help me God.”

What Commander Kerchner suggests is that the members of the Joint Chiefs of Staff approach the leaders of the Congress, both Republicans and Democrats, with the demand that they conduct a comprehensive bipartisan investigation into numerous charges lodged against Barack Obama.  The allegation would include, but are not limited to, charges that he is not a “natural born” U.S. citizen, that the long form birth certificate and draft registration card he has produced as evidence of his eligibility are poorly constructed forgeries, and that the Social Security number he currently uses was originally issued to an unknown resident of Connecticut.

As David Brooks of the New York Times has recently written, “President Barack Obama is an intelligent, judicious man who can see all sides of an issue.  But every once in a while he tries to get politically cute, and he puts on his Keith Olbermann mask.”

No, Mr. Brooks, Barack Obama is none of those things.  He is certainly not intelligent, he is not judicious, and he does not see all sides of an issue.  And while he may at times appear to be a political “clown,” he is just another in a long line of wannabe dictators possessed of just one principal talent… that of a glib tongue animated by monumental delusions of grandeur.  Men such as Adolph Hitler, Benito Mussolini, Fidel Castro and Hugo Chavez come to mind.
