From World Net Daily:
“Obama, oaths and the end of constitutional government”
“Posted: January 20, 2009

“Now steps onto the stage of world history a man apparently quite
conscious that the Supreme Law of the United States prevents him
from being president of the United States.
For why else would anyone hire lawyers and expend millions of
dollars to avoid producing a $12.50 birth certificate to show
eligibility under the Constitution? ‘Midst the rhythmic chants of
a delirious, sycophantic media, inaugural splendor will substitute
for simple proof that the United States of America will have a
constitutionally legitimate president.
If Obama is not eligible, legally, the United States of America
will have no president. A usurper will wield such power as few men
have ever held, having no constitutional warrant. However beloved of
the media or adored by racialist groupies, and irrespective of
public support, Obama will be a tyrant, in the original sense of the
word (from the Greek tyrannos meaning one who wields power to which
he has no lawful claim). As he sends young soldiers to die, even the
appearance of his usurpation of presidential powers will insult their
sacrifice and thwart the Constitution they give their all to preserve.
Even as he utters the oath – hand on Lincoln’s Bible – he will betray
it, not upholding, protecting and defending the Constitution, but
The elites insist that we should pretend to be convinced by an
exhibition of a “certificate of live birth” via the Internet, lacking
the very information the Constitution requires. On the strength of
this we are to exercise blind faith and risk the consequences of an
unconstitutional usurpation of the presidency?
“Put not your faith in men, but bind them down with the chains of the
constitution,” Jefferson warned us. Caesar rose to power on the
passions of men, and killed a republic. Napoleon did the same. So did
Hitler, with strong support from the secularized, university-educated
elite. But the elites approve as Obama whistles past the Constitution,
just as they did when Mitt Romney flushed away the Constitution he’d
sworn to uphold. They regard the Supreme Law of the United States as
a dead letter, “living and breathing” of course, which is their code
for dead and buried.
Like the sophisticated, educated elites in Weimar, Germany, they long
to live under what they presume will be a benevolent dictatorship.
This one will be different, they are quite sure: soft, touchy-feely,
agreeably in tune with the restless, ever-mutating consensus of the
chattering class. Thus was it in human history, until the Declaration
birthed our state and federal constitutions, now just archaic
platitudes, to shape naïve youths in American History classes as
docile subjects of bureaucratic tyranny.
It would not be hard to clarify Obama’s eligibility to be president.
The Constitution provided an entire branch of government to adjudicate
constitutional questions. But judges have concocted various “rules”
over the years that they cite as their license to violate the
Constitution and to excuse their failure to uphold it. These they now
use to claim that Americans lack standing to ask their courts for a
judgment of fact required by our Supreme Law. They dismiss lawsuits
that ask only that judges fulfill their oaths and uphold the
Constitution. Are solemn oaths now meaningless?
Whether rooted in incompetence, cowardice or calculated cynicism,
these dismissals of valid lawsuits are willful subversions of the
Constitution, the inevitable result of legal education that
substitutes judicial decrees for the authority of real laws and
