Mission statement, Conduct, Personal side

Mission statement, Conduct, Personal side

“We control life, Winston, at all its levels. You are imagining that there is something called human nature which will be outraged by what we do and will turn against us. But we create human nature. Men are infinitely malleable.”…George Orwell, “1984″

The Citizen Wells blog has been in existence for over 3 years. I agree with Glenn Beck on many topics and one that we certainly agree on is that God has a purpose for us that we do not always perceive initially or sometimes ever. That has happened for me but I realized within several days of investigating Barack Obama early in 2008 what my purpose was and is. I do deeply care about this country.
While watching the “news” coverage of the Obama camp unfold in 2008 two strong memories from the past were evoked. I am a student of history and fairly well read so the machinations of the Obama camp and control of the media reminded me too strongly of Nazi Germany and therefore also “1984” by George Orwell. It thus became my mission to cover important stories that were under covered, distorted or removed from internet records, just as they were in Nazi Germany and “1984.”
I have been on internet radio some and have been encouraged to do more of this as well as branch out into other areas. It has been extremely difficult to do what I have been doing, even with the help of so many. To do more would dilute the primary mission. I realized that I must stay on point, on mission and fulfill my small part to keep important news stories alive, despite the best efforts of the Orwellian truth decimaters.
Many attempts have been made to dissuade and distract me from our efforts. These include numerous death threats, personal attacks as well as attempts to pull me into non productive endeavors and discussions. That must not happen. I have tried to the best of my ability to research and write about those stories that I perceived as crucial and being distorted by the dark side of humanity. I, like so many of you, keep going despite adversity and personal issues. This has not been easy fo me as well as many of you. This leads me to my next point. Keeping focused on our mission and acknowledging the personal side of our struggles.
My first professional job was in the early seventies. The managing partner of our accounting firm came across as a gruff, old school, cigar smoking navy veteran. After a few years he did not seem quite so intimidating, yet he still carried that aura. One day I was talking to my boss and he shared some insight about that gruff managing partner. They had been discussing an employee who was having performance issues. The managing partner explained to my boss that everyone has a personal life that is not seen, that everyone has struggles and issues that they are dealing with and to always take that into account when evaluating an employee. I was impressed and gained more respect for the managing partner. That lesson became part of me.
So when you are commenting here, standing in line at a checkout, driving or interacting with those around you, remember that we all have struggles, bad days, adversities that we are dealing with. Before a knee jerk reaction, pause and ponder this message. You will be happier as well as those around you.

O’Reilly Donald Trump interview, March 30, 2011, Obama birth certificate, Trump birth certificate, O’Reilly response

“Why has Obama, for over 2 years, employed numerous private and government attorneys to avoid presenting a legitimate birth certificate and college records?”…Citizen Wells and millions of concerned Americans

“It is a little bit odd there were hospitals named after Mr Obama in Ghana, but none in New York.”…Michael Cohen, Donald Trump attorney

Bill O’Reilly the pompous bloviator has consistently insulted anyone questioning Obama’s eligibility and the birth certificate controversy. O’Reilly claimed that he thoroughly investigated  and that Obama was born in Hawaii. Please share your so called proof with us.

O’Reilly will interview Donald Trump tonight, Wednesday, March 30, 2011. Will Trump continue to ask the simple probing questions about Obama’s birth certificate and eligibility? What will be O’Reilly’s response?

From Media Matters March 30, 2011.

“I’m sure it will be just a matter of time now before Bill O’Reilly and Glenn Beck take to the Fox News airwaves to ridicule Donald Trump, who’s been out making easy headlines peddling the debunked birther conspiracy theory.

I’m sure O’Reilly and Beck will take aim at Trump, even though the rest of Fox News is cheering the misguided billionaire on, because, as Media Matters has noted, both Fox hosts are on the record condemning the birth certificate talk.
During the summer of 2009 when Lou Dobbs was doing what Trump is doing now (albeit while anchoring a CNN news show), O’Reilly dismissed the birther talk [emphasis added]:

That theory has been around for a while. The Factor investigated, found out it’s bogus. But Mr. Dobbs is still engaged.

Again, we found out that President Obama was born in Hawaii. We were sent the documents. And what are you gonna do? I don’t know why it’s still around.”

“It is a little bit odd there were hospitals named after Mr Obama in Ghana, but none in New York.”…Michael Cohen, Donald Trump attorney

I have been an outspoken critic of Glenn Beck for insulting millions of Americans for questioning Obama’s birth certificate and his eligibility for the presidency. Will Glenn Beck be drawn to the “Dark Side”, as exemplified by this article from Media Matters?

“I’m sure it will be just a matter of time now before Bill O’Reilly and Glenn Beck take to the Fox News airwaves to ridicule Donald Trump, who’s been out making easy headlines peddling the debunked birther conspiracy theory.

I’m sure O’Reilly and Beck will take aim at Trump, even though the rest of Fox News is cheering the misguided billionaire on, because, as Media Matters has noted, both Fox hosts are on the record condemning the birth certificate talk.”

“Beck has been even more pronounced in his condemnations:

Everybody says, “why is Barack Obama not just producing the birth certificate?” Ok, first of all, he did. And you’re never going to get, you’re never going to get a conspiracy theory to stop. You’re never.

And:

Do you really think that that’s the most pressing issue today, that that’s the one, that’s the one that’s gonna bring this guy down. Really? That one — The birther issue. It’s the biggest waste of time I have ever, ever seen.

And:

And these people, no matter who they are, it could be a Republican, it could be George Bush. It doesn’t matter. Lindsey Graham, I don’t care who it is. These people must not excuse birthers.”

Or, will Glenn Beck be drawn to the “Force”, the light and the truth?

Is this Beck’s way of apologizing?

From The Blaze.

March 23, 2011

““I really believe there’s a birth certificate… Why doesn’t he show his birth certificate? …  I wish he would,” Trump told his female hosts. “If you’re going to be the president of the United States, [the Constitution] says very profoundly that you have to be born in this country… There’s something on that birth certificate [Obama] doesn’t like.””

March 29, 2011 at 1:09pm

““The fact is they asked John McCain for his birth certificate,” Trump told “Fox & Friends” yesterday. “They’ve asked others for their birth certificate. They asked Bush for his birth certificate, by the way, I just found out over the weekend. And they would ask me for my birth certificate.”

It seems even after yesterday “they” are still asking.

It’s interesting that Trump continues to bring this issue up.  The Left loves to paint so-called “birthers” as crazy right-wing wackos.  But as a household name, Trump obviously has a public bully pulpit similar to figures like Newt Gingrich and Sarah Palin who try and avoid the issue.

Does it suggest Trump will make a run for the White House?  Not necessarily, but the man’s logic is hard to argue with… unless you‘re like Goldberg and quickly dismiss the enforcement of the Constitution’s residency requirement as “BS” aimed at attacking America’s first black president.”

“After failing to release his actual birth certificate yesterday — but saying he did — Donald Trump took a second stab at it today. And it appears he got it right.

This time Trump’s camp sent an “official” birth certificate to ABC News in an attempt to correct his previous error. This is what it the new one looks like:”
“That’s a lot different than a hospital certificate of live birth, and Trump’s camp acknowledged as much in a memo to ABC:

“A ‘birth certificate’ and a ‘certificate of live birth’ are in no way the same thing, even though in some cases they use some of the same words,” wrote Trump staffer Thuy Colayco in a message to ABC News. “One officially confirms and records a newborn child’s identity and details of his or her birth, while the other only confirms that someone reported the birth of a child. Also, a ‘certificate of live birth’ is very easy to get because the standards are much lower, while a ‘birth certificate’ is only gotten through a long and detailed process wherein identity must be proved beyond any doubt. If you had only a certificate of live birth, you would not be able to get a proper passport from the Post Office or a driver’s license from the Department of Motor Vehicles. Therefore, there is very significant difference between a ‘certificate of live birth’ and a ‘birth certificate’ and one should never be confused with the other.”

It’s worth noting that the memo could come across as suggestive — insinuating that maybe what Obama has been using is the certificate of live birth instead of an actual birth certificate. Key word, “could.”

That begs the question: was this part of Trump’s plan all along?”

Glenn Beck and TheBlaze.com, this is a good start.

However, Glenn Beck, when you make a mistake, and you made a big one, fess up, apologize and move on. You owe the American people an apology.

“Why has Obama, for over 2 years, employed numerous private and government attorneys to avoid presenting a legitimate birth certificate and college records?”…Citizen Wells and millions of concerned Americans

Tim Pawlenty “thinks” Obama was born in Hawaii. Tim Pawlenty is not thinking. The US Constitution requires more than opinion. Laws and facts rule.

From CNN March 29, 2011.

“Donald Trump should quit questioning President Obama’s birthplace, says Tim Pawlenty, a potential future opponent of Trump’s for the Republican presidential nomination.

Appearing on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, Pawlenty said he doesn’t doubt Obama was, in fact, born in Hawaii and says members of his party should stop pushing the issue.

“I, for one, do not believe we should be raising that issue,” the ex-Minnesota governor said. “I think President Obama was born in the United States.””
“The comments come a day after Trump pushed the issue farther down the road, telling Fox News he is “really concerned” the president was not born in the United States.

“All of the sudden a lot of facts are emerging, and I am starting to wonder myself whether he was born in this country,” he said.”
“It should be noted that CNN and other news organizations have thoroughly debunked the rumors about the president’s birthplace. Hawaii has released a copy of the president’s birth certificate – officially called a “certificate of live birth” – and the hospital where he was born took out ads in two Hawaiian newspapers in 1961 announcing the birth.”

This article contains lies and misinformation typical of the Communist News Network.

“It should be noted that CNN and other news organizations have thoroughly debunked the rumors about the president’s birthplace. Hawaii has released a copy of the president’s birth certificate – officially called a “certificate of live birth” – and the hospital where he was born took out ads in two Hawaiian newspapers in 1961 announcing the birth.”

  • The document purporting to be Obama’s was a Certification of Live birth, not Certificate.
  • We do not know which hospital Obama was born in.
  • There is no evidence that the document placed on the internet was produced by the state of Hawaii or that it is genuine.
  • A COLB from Hawaii can be obtained even if the birth occurred elsewhere.

“CNN and other news organizations have thoroughly debunked the rumors”

Oh really?

Tim Pawlenty, welcome to the US Constitution Hall of Shame

I just shared my thoughts with the Pawlenty for president site. Perhaps you would like to as well.

From ABC News March 29, 2011.

“Donald Trump learned the hard way this week that if you’re going to call on the president to release his official birth certificate, you’d better do the same.

Trump, who has been putting pressure on Obama lately to make public his long-form birth certificate from Hawaii, decided to set a good example and release his own on Monday. Only problem was, the document that Trump provided to the conservative Website Newsmax wasn’t his actual birth certificate, but rather a  “hospital certificate of birth.”

On Tuesday, Trump, who is contemplating a presidential run in 2012, sought to correct the oversight, providing a copy of his official birth certificate issued by the New York City Department of Health to ABC News.

It shows that “Donald John Trump” was born June 14, 1946 in Jamaica Hospital in Queens.It lists his father as Fred C. Trump and his mother as Mary Mac Leod. The date of the report is listed as June 14, 1946.

The image came with an accompanying memo from a member of Trump’s staff.

“A ‘birth certificate’ and a ‘certificate of live birth’ are in no way the same thing, even though in some cases they use some of the same words,” wrote Trump staffer Thuy Colayco in a message to ABC News. “One officially confirms and records a newborn child’s identity and details of his or her birth, while the other only confirms that someone reported the birth of a child. Also, a ‘certificate of live birth’ is very easy to get because the standards are much lower, while a ‘birth certificate’ is only gotten through a long and detailed process wherein identity must be proved beyond any doubt. If you had only a certificate of live birth, you would not be able to get a proper passport from the Post Office or a driver’s license from the Department of Motor Vehicles. Therefore, there is very significant difference between a ‘certificate of live birth’ and a ‘birth certificate’ and one should never be confused with the other.”
Trump has been turning up the volume on his calls for Obama, who has been the target of allegations that he was not born in the United States by so-called “birthers,” to release his official birth certificate.

“This guy either has a birth certificate or he doesn’t,” Trump said in an interview on Fox News on Monday. “I didn’t think this was such a big deal, but I will tell you, it’s turning out to be a very big deal because people now are calling me from all over saying please don’t give up on this issue.”

The Obama campaign released a “certification of live birth,” which is a shorter document that carries the same legal weight as the long one, in 2008.”

I suppose I should congratulate Michael Falcone for getting the title of the document posted on the internet for Obama as a Certification of Live birth.

The audacity of ends justifying means goes on. Obama has been given a free pass until now and Donald Trump presents a real document that provides information about his birth and the biased media pounces on it as insufficient and lauds the COLB as gospel. This was probably Trump’s intention.

Note the following Orwellian spin from the article:

“The Obama campaign released a “certification of live birth,” which is a shorter document that carries the same legal weight as the long one, in 2008.””

Same legal weight? To prove natural born citizenship status?

NO.

Ok, reporters, liberals and other low IQ individuals. Pay close attention.

Certification of Live Birth, State of Hawaii format, posted on the internet, allegedly for Obama, 101.

  • Per Hawaii law, a person born outside of HI can obtain a COLB.
  • There is no proof that the internet COLB was obtained by Obama.
  • The internet COLB has never been authenticated as coming from Hawaii.
  • A COLB from Hawaii may be legal for some transactions where citizenship must be proved, but not to insure natural born citizenship status for the presidency.
  • A long form birth certificate, such as John McCain produced, is required for most evidence for such everyday activities as playing Little Leage Baseball.

Donald Trump on Fox News: Birthers Are Great Americans; Obama’s Presidency May Be Illegal; No Doctors or Nurses Have Ever Come Forward
OBAMARELEASE YOURRECORDS ON

Video: Donald Trump is still refusing to back down on Obama’s eligibility. Some in the media just don’t get it and most of the other scumbags in the media are in the tank for Obama, including most at Fox News. The Trump segment from Monday’s “On the Record” show embedded below.

On a side note: the leftists in the media are going nuts over the birth certificate that Trump released to Newsmax. Politico ran a hit piece attacking Trump for releasing a hospital-generated Certificate of Birth because it is not a state certified birth certificate. Politico even had the nerve to mention that Trump’s mother was born in Scotland, as if that matters. Those that researched the issue know that it doesn’t matter where the parents were born. What matters is the citizen status of the parents at the time of the birth of the child, on American soil, not where the parents were born. Talk about hypocrisy!?

It seems like Trump might have the ability to bring an action for a Declaratory Judgment and bring more clarity to this issue. I would hope that he could bring it before a Judge who actually takes his/her oath seriously. If the Judge rules that Trump is eligible to run since his mother was naturalized before his birth, the dam would burst with new lawsuits. As Charlie Sheen says, “Winning!”

I think he would need to bring suit against Secretary of State/Supervisor of Elections. Especially, if any of the new Presidential Eligibility legislation passes that state requirement of being a Natural Born Citizen as opposed to an ordinary citizen, meeting the case or controversy requirement.

9.3 Declaratory Judgment Act
Updated 2010
The Declaratory Judgment Act offers a unique mechanism by which advocates may seek to remedy ongoing violations of statutory or constitutional provisions./
Distinctive features of the Act:
allow prospective defendants to sue to establish their nonliability/121/ and
afford a party threatened with liability an opportunity for adjudication before its adversary commences litigation./122/
However, the statute makes no express reference to, and creates no special preference for, the resolution of such “anticipatory” disputes. A party need not be a prospective defendant in order to bring an action under the Act./123/ Clearly, however, the unique declaratory form of relief created by the statute was intended to resolve pending or threatened controversies before the need for coercive intervention was required./124/
Section 1 of the Act provides, in relevant part:
In a case of actual controversy within its jurisdiction …any court of the United States … may declare the rights and other legal relations of any interested party seeking such declaration, whether or not further relief is or could be sought. Any such declaration shall have the force and effect of a final judgment and shall be reviewable as such./125/

http://www.federalpracticemanual.org/node/53

Seems to me that all Trump would need to do is file suit for a declaration that a Candidates parents need only be naturalized citizens to qualify as a natural born citizen. That should force the media to discuss this aspect of Presidential eligibility. But who knows. Just the act of filing for a declaratory judgment by Trump would shake things up.”

“Why has Obama, for over 2 years, employed numerous private and government attorneys to avoid presenting a legitimate birth certificate and college records?”…Citizen Wells and millions of concerned Americans

From World Net Daily March 29, 2011.

“Billionaire developer and possible Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is now suggesting Barack Obama’s presidency could be “illegal” if legitimate proof is not provided demonstrating the commander in chief is indeed a “natural born citizen” of the U.S.

Trump’s use of the “I” word came last night during a phone interview with Greta Van Susteren of the Fox News Channel.
“To be honest with you, I want him to have a birth certificate,” Trump said, “because [otherwise] that would mean that his presidency was, I guess you’d have to say, illegal. You have to be born in the United States. I hope that he was born in the United States. I hope – but I want to get ride of the word hope, I want to know for sure – I hope that he was born in the United States and I hope this doesn’t become a big issue.”
Trump defended so-called “birthers,” explaining, “They just want to see the president was born in this country.”

He also called into question Hawaii’s Democratic Gov. Neil Abercrombie for suggesting he remembered when Obama was born nearly a half century ago.

“I’ll bet he didn’t even know the parents 50 years ago,” Trump said. “I think it’s absolutely insane. What he’s doing is taking a bullet for the party by making a statement that, ‘I remember.'”

Trump also wondered why no doctors or nurses have come forward to announce their presence at Obama’s birth.

“Here’s the president of the United States, and no doctor, no nurse, nobody’s come forward saying, ‘I delivered that beautiful baby.'””
