Obama, attorneys and Democrats control FEC

The devil himself could not have come up with a more devious plan.

Robert Bauer, of Perkins Coie, on February 1, 2007 requested an advisory opinion to keep Obama’s option for matching funds open. Bauer knew full well that Obama, not being a natural born citizen, was not eligible for matching funds. The FEC advisory opinion from March 1, 2007 responded in the affirmative.Ellen L. Weintraub, former staff member at Perkins Coie, was a Democrat appointee of the FEC at that time. She remained well beyond her scheduled tenure with the help of Barack Obama.

Advisory Opinion Request: General Election Public Funding

From Obama attorney Robert Bauer to FEC

“This request for an Advisory Opinion is filed on behalf of Senator Barack Obama and the committee, the Obama Exploratory Committee, that he established to fund his exploration of a Presidential candidacy. The question on which he seeks the Commission’s guidance is whether, if Senator Obama becomes a candidate, he may provisionally raise funds for the general election but retain the option, upon nomination, of returning these contributions and accepting the public funds for which he would be eligible as the Democratic Party’s nominee.”

FEC advisory opinion

From Robert D. Lenhard to Robert Bauer

“The Commission concludes that Senator Obama may solicit and receive private contributions for the 2008 presidential general election without losing his
eligibility to receive public funding if he receives his party’s nomination for President, if he (1) deposits and maintains all private contributions
designated for the general election in a separate account, (2) refrains from using these contributions for any purpose, and (3) refunds the private
contributions in full if he ultimately decides to receive public funds.”

George Will in the Washington Post writes.

“Paralyze The FEC? Splendid.”

“What if the country held an election and there was no one to make sure that candidates played by the rules — no agency that could issue regulations, write
advisory opinions or bring enforcement actions against those breaking the law?”

“The six-person FEC — three members from each party — enforces the rules it writes about how Americans are permitted to participate in politics. You
thought the First Amendment said enough about that participation? Silly you.

The FEC’s policing powers may soon be splendidly paralyzed.

Three current FEC members, two Democrats and one Republican, are recess appointees whose terms will end in a few days when this session of Congress ends –
unless they are confirmed to full six-year terms.

Four Senate Democrats decided to block the Republican, Hans von Spakovsky. Republicans have responded: “All three or none.” If this standoff persists until
Congress adjourns, the three recess appointments will expire and the FEC will have just two members — a Republican vacancy has existed since April. If so,
the commission will be prohibited from official actions, including the disbursement of funds for presidential candidates seeking taxpayer financing.”

The Post wants von Spakovsky confirmed only to keep the FEC functioning. He is being blocked because four senators have put “holds” on his nomination. One of those four who might be responsible for preventing the FEC from being able to disburse taxpayer funds to Democratic presidential candidates Joe Biden, Chris Dodd and John Edwards is . . . Barack Obama.”

“Obama to Break Promise, Opt Out of Public Financing for General Election”

“In a web video to supporters — “the people who built this movement from the bottom up” — Sen. Barack Obama, D-Illinois, announced this morning that he will not enter into the public financing system, despite a previous pledge to do so.”

“In November 2007, Obama answered “Yes” to Common Cause when asked “If you are nominated for President in 2008 and your major opponents agree to forgo private funding in the general election campaign, will you participate in the presidential public financing system?”
Obama wrote:

“In February 2007, I proposed a novel way to preserve the strength of the public financing system in the 2008 election. My plan requires both major party
candidates to agree on a fundraising truce, return excess money from donors, and stay within the public financing system for the general election.”

Senate confirms FEC Nominees.

From the Wall Street Journal.

“The Senate confirmed five new members to the Federal Election Commission, ending a bitter political battle that had hobbled the elections watchdog for

But the Senate action came with a final twist: Republicans accused Democrats of delaying the confirmation vote one day to allow the Democratic National
Committee to file a lawsuit against the presidential campaign of Republican Sen. John McCain of Arizona.

The six-member elections agency had been without a quorum since December as Democrats objected to Republican nominee Hans Von Spakovsky for what they said was his partisan handling of voting-rights matters in his former job as a Department of Justice attorney. The dispute prevented the two parties from reaching an agreement to vote on any of the nominees.”

“Other commissioners confirmed Tuesday included Democrats Steve Walther and Cynthia Bauerly. The new Republican commissioners are Mr. Petersen, Don McGahn and Caroline Hunter. They join sitting commissioner Ellen Weintraub, a Democrat. The commission needs at least four members to take official action on election complaints, new campaign-financing rules and requests from campaigns for legal guidance.”


From Fox News.

“Since the beginning of the year, the commission has only had two members: Republican Chairman David Mason and Democrat Ellen Weintraub.”

“Obama to Most Likely Avoid FEC Audit”

“The Federal Election Commission is unlikely to conduct a potentially embarrassing audit of how Barack Obama raised and spent his presidential campaign’s record-shattering windfall, despite allegations of questionable donations and accounting that had the McCain campaign crying foul.

Adding insult to injury for Republicans: The FEC is obligated to complete a rigorous audit of McCain’s campaign coffers, which will take months, if not
years, and cost McCain millions of dollars to defend.

Obama is expected to escape that level of scrutiny mostly because he declined an $84 million public grant for his campaign that automatically triggers an
audit and because the sheer volume of cash he raised and spent minimizes the significance of his errors. Another factor: The FEC, which would have to vote to
launch an audit, is prone to deadlocking on issues that inordinately impact one party or the other – like approving a messy and high-profile probe of a
sitting president.

So, by declining public funding, Obama decreased the odds of an audit. And the FEC may not investigate due to political party affiliations of the FEC
commission members.”


May 1, 2009

“At midnight Thursday, the terms of Federal Election Commissioner Donald F. McGahn II (a Republican) and FEC Chairman Steven T. Walther (a Democrat) expired. Combined with Democrat Ellen L. Weintraub’s seat — she remains on the commission even though her term expired two years ago — President Obama has the opportunity to make his first three appointments to the six-member commission. Though FEC terms are set for six years, members are free to stay on until replacements are selected by the president and confirmed by the U.S. Senate.”

“Josh Zaharoff, deputy program director for Common Cause, argues that, short of complete overhaul, such a proposal would be the best way to ensure real
enforcement of election laws. The long-standing existing practice “ensures that the commissioners are likely to be loyal to their political party rather than
to election laws and the American people as a whole.”

After seven months without a quorum, the restocked FEC has drawn significant criticism from campaign-finance-reform advocates for its lack of serious,
independent enforcement. There have been a series of 3-3 deadlocks on key issues, resulting in a significant increase in the percentage of dismissed cases.”

April 4, 2011

“More FEC Terms Expire, But Replacements Unlikely”

“The terms of Chairwoman Cynthia Bauerly (D) and Commissioner Matthew Petersen (R) expire at the end of April. The terms of Donald McGahn (R) and Steven Walther (D) expired almost two years ago.

The longest-serving commissioner is Ellen Weintraub (D), whose term expired almost four years ago. The only commissioner who will be serving an unexpired term at the end of the month is Republican Caroline C. Hunter, whom Bush nominated in 2008, for a term that expires in April 2013.

Further complicating the confirmation process is a large list of pending issues before the FEC that will affect Obama’s own re-election campaign.
One of the biggest issues is how the FEC will write new rules in the wake of the Supreme Court’s Citizens United ruling, which would set boundaries for how
hundreds of millions of dollars can be spent by third parties in the presidential election and Congressional campaigns. The issue was so important to Obama
that he admonished the Supreme Court a few days after its decision in the case during his 2010 State of the Union address.”

April 16, 2011

“FEC Launches Audit Of Obama’s 2008 Campaign”

“The FEC’s decision to audit the campaign is not surprising, given that it was the largest federal campaign in history, raising more than $750 million in
receipts. If Obama’s campaign were not audited, it would have been the first presidential nominee’s campaign to escape such scrutiny since the public
financing system was created in 1976.

The potential for the FEC’s audit became increasingly more likely as the FEC questioned some of Obama campaign filings. In all, the FEC wrote 26 letters to
Obama for America warning the campaign that if it did not adequately respond to the agency’s questions that it “could result in an audit or enforcement

“As of the end of March, Obama for America had spent nearly $3 million on legal fees since the 2008 election. In all, the president’s campaign spent three
times more on lawyers after Election Day than in the two years preceding it.

The lion’s share of Obama’s legal spending went to Perkins Coie, a well-known Democratic legal and accounting firm. Perkins Coie is representing the Obama
campaign in all major legal matters, including seven of the FEC’s known investigations involving the White House bid. In each of these cases, the FEC voted to dismiss the case or found “no reason to believe” that the Obama for America or related committees had violated any laws.

Perkins Coie may be also representing Obama for America in the FEC’s spending investigation of a Republican National Committee complaint. A few weeks before the election, the RNC alleged that Obama’s campaign accepted donations from foreign nationals, received contributions that had exceed limits and submitted fictitious donor names to the agency. The status of this investigation is unknown, though the FEC confirmed it received the complaint.”

“Election Watchdogs Assail Obama on FEC Appointments”

“The groups are demanding that Obama shake up the board of commissioners at the Federal Election Commission, the only agency able to enforce campaign laws.
They say political divisions among the agency’s panel of six leaders have rendered it toothless.

“The bottom line is nothing can happen to change the commission unless the White House names new commissioners, and they are refusing to do so,” said Fred Wertheimer, president of Democracy 21, a nonpartisan advocacy group. “The result is going to be an election with no enforcement.””


Why would Obama, as we know him, replace the FEC board. Since early 2007, Obama has been shielded by Robert Bauer and Ellen Weintraub. That’s right, as you read above, Weintraub is still on the FEC board, four years after her term expired. And don’t forget, after Obama secured the White House, he hired Robert Bauer as general counsel. Bauer has since returned to Perkins Coie to continue helping Obama keep his records hidden.

This is a clear conflict of interest!!!

And what about attorney ethics?

As stated above, Robert Bauer knew about Obama’s natural born citizen deficiency in February of 2007 and yet he filed a request for an advisory opinion on Obama’s behalf regarding Federal Matching Funds. This is fraud!

    A most solemn moment of prayer for all the families and loved ones that suffered so badly last week at this moment in Newtown, Ct.
    I hear church bells ringing in my area now.

  2. Mr. Bill,
    Thank you.

    This poem was received yesterday in an e-mail. It is appropriate to post it here today:

    Subject: Absolutely Beautiful (Newton, Conn)

    Twas’ 11 days before Christmas, around 9:38
    when 20 beautiful children stormed through heaven’s gate.
    their smiles were contagious, their laughter filled the air.
    they could hardly believe all the beauty they saw there.

    they were filled with such joy, they didn’t know what to say.
    they remembered nothing of what had happened earlier that day.
    “where are we?” asked a little girl, as quiet as a mouse.
    “this is heaven.” declared a small boy. “we’re spending Christmas at God’s house.”

    when what to their wondering eyes did appear,
    but Jesus, their Savior, the children gathered near.
    He looked at them and smiled, and they smiled just the same.
    then He opened His arms and He called them by name.

    and in that moment was joy, that only heaven can bring
    those children all flew into the arms of their King
    and as they lingered in the warmth of His embrace,
    one small girl turned and looked at Jesus’ face.

    and as if He could read all the questions she had
    He gently whispered to her, “I’ll take care of mom and dad.”
    then He looked down on earth, the world far below
    He saw all of the hurt, the sorrow, and woe

    then He closed His eyes and He outstretched His hand,
    “Let My power and presence re-enter this land!”
    “may this country be delivered from the hands of fools”
    “I’m taking back my nation. I’m taking back my schools!”

    then He and the children stood up without a sound.
    “come now my children, let me show you around.”
    excitement filled the space, some skipped and some ran.
    all displaying enthusiasm that only a small child can.

    and i heard Him proclaim as He walked out of sight,
    “in the midst of this darkness, I AM STILL THE LIGHT.”

    “Jake Tapper Mocks Trump’s ‘Bizarre’ Birther Nonsense …”

    “Birtherism really makes Jake Tapper mad. The Good Morning America journalist on Wednesday angrily attacked the untrue conspiracy theory as “bizarre,” “fact-free” “nonsense.” Tapper highlighted Donald Trump’s support of Mitt Romney and warned that Republicans think the real estate mogul “undercuts his seriousness and suggests [Romney is] not willing to stand up to even the most offensive and false nonsense from that wing of his party.

    Tapper lectured, “…Romney risks being overshadowed by Donald Trump who keeps bizarrely attacking the President, falsely, for not being born in the United States.”

    He continued, lamenting, “Overnight, Mitt Romney was raising money with Donald Trump, who is on a fact-free tear, spewing birther nonsense, alleging the President was not born in the U.S.”

    Tapper has repeatedly gotten indignant over birtherism. On April 12, 2011, he describe it as “non-reality-based.”

    “Steyn: Don’t end Obama’s presidency on the birther ‘rinky-dink technicality’”

    “One reason why I don’t want to get into, don’t particularly — never got excited about the birther business – I don’t want this president discredited and kicked out on a technicality,” Steyn said. “This isn’t like when Snoop Dogg found himself up on that murder rap and got acquitted on a technicality. I don’t want this president to be convicted on technical grounds. I don’t want this presidency to end on the technicality of whether he was born in Hawaii, or whether he was born in Mombasa, or whether he was born on the planet Krypton. …

    … It’s not enough to end his presidency simply on some rinky-dink technicality like where the guy happened to be born. That’s my view on the thing.””


  5. gordo,
    Steyn’s comments are pure silliness. I guess he feels that the constitution and fraud are simply technicalities. WOW. The big picture shows that the left are willing to ignore, fraud, cheat and lie to get what they want. Getting Barry out on this “technicality” would expose the left and some on the “right” as the worthless, spineless, self centered, greedy liars they are

  6. So following the precepts of the Constitution are “rinky-dink”? Wow Mr. Steyn I am surprised.
    The problem is this part of the Constitution is deliberately being edited to mean something it did not start out to mean. Most everyone thinks ‘natural born citizen’ means anyone born on American soil regardless of parents’ citizenship. Check yourselves(I did awhile ago; ask a whole bunch of people to tell you what it means and you will see.
    It’s already been amended in most American minds.

  9. A House Divided Against Itself: Read the following at WND:


    I had thought to myself that the reason Ambassador Stevens was allowed to go down without help was his role in supporting the Syrian rebels. This WND article provides information that supports my suspicions.

    The State Department was behind a lot of the so-called “Arab Spring.” Where the house is divided against itself: The Arab Spring was fine in Sunni countries, especially in those countries where the Sunni leadership was more moderate and friendly to the US. But it is not fine in Shiite countries. This is because Obama is pro-Iran and pro-Shiite. Very few, it seems, have caught on to this, to include Secretary of State Clinton.

    So to Hillary Clinton and Ambassador Stevens, what was good for the Sunnis was good for the Shiites. Obama, however, will not openly admit his pro-Iran Shiite preferences. So he has pretended to go along with the State Department.

    The article at WND points out Steven’s central role in recruiting jihadist rebels against the Assad regime. Thus to the Shiites, Stevens had to go. From the perspective of Iran, which backs Asasad, he had to be taken out of the picture.

    I’m quite sure, now, that the terrorists who killed Stevens and the three other Americans were Iran backed. That why Obama could watch it on TV in the Situation Room, would prevent a military intervention to come to the rescue, and could then fly off to Las Vegas with a clear conscience.

    Well??? That would make me sick to my stomach too, Mrs. Clinton. I might then fall down and give myself a concussion.

    Our we past the denial yet? Mrs. Clinton, you must know the truth of the matter by now: Obama is in Iran’s back pocket.

  10. “Ted Cruz speech stokes 2016 speculation”

    “While some critics contend that Cruz is not eligible to run for president since he was born in Canada, he has asserted that doesn’t preclude him from the office.

    “The Constitution requires that one be a natural-born citizen, and my mother was a U.S. citizen when I was born,” he told The New Yorker’s Ryan Lizza.”

    “Rafael Edward “Ted” Cruz (born December 22, 1970) is a Cuban American politician and the United States Senator-elect for the state of Texas. A Republican, Cruz defeated the Democrat Paul Sadler in the November 6, 2012 United States Senate election. Cruz is also endorsed by the Tea Party Movement.

    Cruz was born in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, where his parents, Eleanor Darragh and Rafael Cruz, were working in the petroleum business. His father was a Cuban immigrant during the Cuban Revolution to the United States. His mother, an American, was reared in Delaware, in a family of Irish and Italian descent.”


  11. i’ve argued with people over the definition of Natural Born and it’s mind boggling! I use the if two basset hounds have puppies what must the puppies be NATURALLY? They naturally are basset hounds. On the flip side if a basset and a lab reproduce are the puppies bassets by nature? Are they labs by nature? NOPE and it’s the same with natural born citizen! If Obama is a natural born citizen what is he a natural born citizen of? The US? Kenya

    The saddest part is that still doesn’t change their minds…they can’t defend their position but they won’t change it

  12. Mr. Bill(ms. helga)

    hockeyfan530 – Here is the best argument I use for “Natural Born Citizen” and it was Senate Resolution(511).

    “What’s interesting here is that Sen. Leahy, the Chairman of the Senate Judiciary, confirms that a “natural-born” citizen is the child of American citizen parents.”(Note CITIZEN PARENTS)


  13. Mr. Bill(ms. helga)

    PS – If I remember right Senate Resolution 511 was once listed on wikipedia. Mysteriously gone!

  14. Mr. Bill(ms. helga)

    PPS – Senator Barack Obama was one of the original signers (5 I think).

  15. Well, Fox has just confirmed that Obama has nominated Sen. John Kerry for Sec. of State. You all remember the swift boat saga which killed him in 2004?
    This is the way things are going these days, so I guess the fraud picking another one is par for the course. They said that he will be readily approved by the Senate, a closely-knit body, since he has been one of them for over twenty years.

  16. Actually Obama is pro Sunni….has his marching orders from the Saudis to get rid of the Shiites. That’s why he’s promoted the takeover by the Muslim Brotherhood and why he is probably arming, behind the scenes, the rebels in Syria against the govt. which is Shiite. He refrains from aggression against Iran because he hates Israel and also has orders from the Saudis to get rid of Israel as well….and he also wants to favor his buddy, Putin, who supports Iran. But Saudis will more than likely also be targeted by Muslim Brotherhood radical version of Sunni sooner or later….as well as Jordan. Obama has become dependent upon two “Luciferian” types (Russian commies and radical Muslim Brotherhood) so, in the end, it might not turn out so well for him since they both demand bowing from him. Come the finale of the NWO biggies a lot who paved the way will become expendable.

  17. …with regard to the oppressive rumblings coming out of the east coast concerning confiscation of guns generally, which would constitute a suspension of the Second Amendment of the Constitution…
    Regardless of what the Attorney General’s office might say…the RIGHT to KEEP and BEAR arms shall NOT be ‘infringed’ (that means by oppressive taxation or any other coercive or unlawful means). It is NOT open to interpretation. It additionally, is NOT open to negotiation or discussion. To forfeit arms, in this country, is strictly voluntary and, at the very least, conciliatorily unpatriotic. Regardless of what Obama says, it is NOT up for a popular vote!!! This was recently confirmed by activity in the courts in, of all places, Chicago…
    People have been wondering where the tipping point would be concerning the nullification and suspension of the Constitution. If the government considers it necessary to accompany an unconstitutional, and therefore unlawful, order to confiscate weapons (anywhwere in the United States) with the threat or application of the, therefore, unwarranted use of deadly or any other force upon otherwise innocent civilians, it would then be incumbent upon those under such threat to respond in kind. This would not be civil disobedience, as to be disobedient assumes breaking a lawful order. As the present government seldom does anything without such a threat, I would think that such an act would additionally invoke the immediate marshalling of the various standing Constitutional militias, of which the government is only tacitly and partially aware, which would thereby form a core of resistance heretofore and as yet unseen in the history of this country. Additionally, and
    if this tipping point is reached, there will be little need for conscription, as the volunteer force will number in the millions, and nearly instantaneously. Such is the nature of militias.
    The warning (via the 2nd Amendment itself) here goes deep…to the very core of our existence as a nation. I would imagine there will then be a poitical house-cleaning, as a shadow government already exists and has been legally and Constitutionally assembled, vetted, and is standing by for such a time as it is needed.

  18. Cabby,
    We here at CW know why Biden was Obama’s VP choice. And Hillary was selected as SoS to placate her supporters and hush her up in regard to eligibility concerns. But I wonder what Kerry has on Obama that merits his appointment as new SoS??? Can someone enlighten us?

  19. Observer,

    Your explanation of Obama’s loyalties has my head spinning. I have heard your theory as well as others that come to a completely different conclusion.

    All I know is that ALL OF ISLAM, ALL OF COMMUNISM and ALL OF LIBERALISM hates the People of the Book, meaning Christians and Jews. They all have a common enemy.

    How in the world can Liberals align themselves with the Muslim Brotherhood who treat women so brutally? Odd alliance? Not even rational.

    I respect your views. Trying to understand.

    Kerry was instrumental in Obama giving the 2004 DNC speech.

  22. SueQ,

    How in the world can Liberals align themselves with the Muslim Brotherhood who treat women so brutally?
    Well, to begin with, liberals are not people of any principle…AND…..Muslim Brotherhood hates America and hates Israel!! Liberals love those types best of all. The rest of the package just has to be accepted…until some later time! Plus there’s a historical linkage between Marxism and Islam.

    P.S. While libs preach “for the health of the woman” there are an awful lot of little women who don’t exist today as well as a lot of women suffering now legalized back alley type abortions and while pushing for “diversity” they find all kinds of reasons to rationalize ending the lives of those they find “undesirable”, the elderly, the useless, etc.

  23. If John Boehner is rejected as Leader of the House next month I nominate NEWT GINGRICH! It has been said that it could be Paul Ryan….nah he is to much of a push over….but Newt going up againt the kenyan fraud gives me tingles up my leg. Go Newt

    Danish study: 1 of 6 babies shows signs of life after late-term abortion


    A Danish survey has found that as many as one-sixth of babies show some signs of life after late-term abortions.

    At Aaarhus University Hospital, of the 70 babies destroyed by late-term abortions during the term of the study, 11 showed some signs of struggling for life. The study covered only abortions performed between the 12th and 22nd weeks of pregnancy, when the operation is allowed in Denmark under limited circumstances.

    A spokesman for Danish midwives said that the results of the study could be unsettling, but “not a major problem.” American abortionists often inject poison into the heart of an unborn child to ensure its death before a late-term abortion is begun.

  26. Don’t like Newt’s current views on “marriage,” http://freedomoutpost.com/2012/12/gingrich-slides-toward-sodom-tells-gio-to-back-same-sex-marriage/
    but he has given the RNC some valuable (requested) information. Here is the link: http://www.gingrichproductions.com/2012/12/memo-the-challenge-confronting-the-republican-party/

    I agree we need someone like him in the speakership to confront O.’s policies and legislative actions. There has to be someone to replace Boehner.

  27. kaks | December 21, 2012 at 7:41 pm |
    Isn’t this absolutely unbelievable? It is worse than we thought.
    I was just ready to post your link and found that you already had.

    Quoted here is something the judge said, which is beyond absurd, especially from a judge:

    He explained that the fact the government says Obama is qualified to be president is more than enough for him.

    “This court notes that President Obama lives in the White House. He flies on Air Force One. He has appeared before Congress, delivered State of the Union addresses and meets with congressional leaders on a regular basis. He has appointed countless ambassadors to represent the interests of the United States throughout the world,” Carroll wrote.

    Nowadays we shouldn’t be shocked at anything, but THIS shocks me. This whole charade is going to go down in history (what’s left of it) as the worst hoax ever perpetrated on a nation.

  28. Sorry, but I have to say that Newty is a bit short on principle himself and perhaps morals as well? While acting as if his new found Catholic Faith (with the influence of his third wife) is important in certain arguments previously he now simply disses certain “aspects” of that Faith now for the slippery slope of “what could it hurt” re: marriage. Perhaps he should refresh his not so distant conversion by noting what the Pope has recently profoundly spoken about this subject:

    Pope says future of mankind at stake over gay marriage

    Pope Benedict XVI has weighed in on a heated debate over gay marriage, criticising new concepts of the traditional family and warning that mankind itself was at stake.


    If you can so easily become a CINO can you be trusted not to also easily become a RINO??

    That’s why we call him “Newty”!

    S. RES.511
    Recognizing that John Sidney McCain, III, is a natural born citizen.
    APRIL 10, 2008
    Mrs. MCCASKILL(for herself, Mr. LEAHY, Mr. OBAMA, Mr. COBURN, Mrs. CLINTON, and Mr. WEBB) submitted the following resolution; which was referred to the Committee on the Judiciary
    APRIL24, 2008
    Reported by Mr. LEAHY, without amendment
    APRIL 30, 2008
    Considered and agreed to
    Recognizing that John Sidney McCain, III, is a natural born citizen.
    Whereas the Constitution of the United States requires that, to be eligible for the Office of the President, a person must be a ‘‘natural born Citizen’’ of the United States;
    Whereas the term ‘‘natural born Citizen’’, as that term ap- pears in Article II, Section 1, is not defined in the Con- stitution of the United States;
    Whereas there is no evidence of the intention of the Framers or any Congress to limit the constitutional rights of children born to Americans serving in the military nor to prevent those children from serving as their country’s President;
    Whereas such limitations would be inconsistent with the purpose and intent of the ‘‘natural born Citizen’’ clause of the Constitution of the United States, as evidenced by the First Congress’s own statute defining the term ‘‘natural born Citizen’’;
    Whereas the well-being of all citizens of the United States is preserved and enhanced by the men and women who are assigned to serve our country outside of our national borders;
    Whereas previous presidential candidates were born outside of the United States of America and were understood to be eligible to be President; and
    Whereas John Sidney McCain, III, was born to American citizens on an American military base in the Panama Canal Zone in 1936: Now, therefore, be it
    Resolved, That John Sidney McCain, III, is a ‘‘natural born Citizen’’ under Article II, Section 1, of the Constitution of the United States.

    Latest Title: A resolution recognizing that John Sidney McCain, III, is a natural born citizen.
    Sponsor: Sen McCaskill, Claire [MO] (introduced 4/10/2008) Cosponsors (5)
    Latest Major Action: 4/30/2008 Passed/agreed to in Senate. Status: Resolution agreed to in Senate without amendment and with a preamble by Unanimous Consent.
    COSPONSORS(5), ALPHABETICAL [followed by Cosponsors withdrawn]: (Sort: by date)
    Sen Clinton, Hillary Rodham [NY] – 4/10/2008
    Sen Coburn, Tom [OK] – 4/10/2008
    Sen Leahy, Patrick J. [VT] – 4/10/2008

    Hey All,

    First off, Newt’s NOT a member of Congress and CAN NOT be Speaker of the House.

    Here’s another Christmas Story.

    If you remember in the movie of “It’s A Wonderful Life” of 1946 with Jimmy Stewart, the name of the town is Bedford Falls. If you remember there is a crooked banker in the town by the name of Potter. His whole desire is to take control of everything. When Jimmy Stewart finds out the misplacement of some money might cause his bank to fail, he contemplates suicide and Clarence the angel appears. He shows Jimmy what would have happened if he had never been born. The scene changes to a dirty run down city filled with nothing but bars and bums. What caught my eye was the name of the city – Potterville. Putting two and two together all I could think of was “USURPERVILLE”(google it) instead of Washington, D.C.

    Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays Everyone

    Hey All,

    As I have stated before, the INDOCTRINATION continues.

    “Natural Born Citizen” is someone who is born in the Country to citizen parentS, but yet people are being INDOCTRINATED in to believeing that it simply means being born in Country.

    I believe it’s a case of “Look at the left hand while the right hand is where your attention should be”

    I would also suggest that the Obamas and the Commies are REALLY enjoying this.

    I even bought in to their “Obama wasn’t born here” crap for a while, but once you investigate and educate yourself, you realize that the left and the media are INTENTIONALLY distracting the public by continually spewing their rhetoric.

    Kind of like the INDOCTRINATION that the Second Amendment was put in the Constitution to protect HUNTERS.

    By the way (and I know those who blog here understand this), the Second Amendment was put in the Constitution to protect “the people” from tyranical GOVERNMENT.

    But don’t take my word for it, investigate and educate yourself.

  33. Shepard here…
    January 6, 2013 is the Electoral Collage appointed dated
    for convening; and
    per USC Objections can be introduced.
    Objections over the ‘Natural Born Status’ of the incumbent; and
    standing on the code of statutory construction of our Rule of Law
    the probability of real change is in the wind.
    But the people of America must pressure and pressure overwhelmingly
    the seated and newcomer House and Senate sworn to hold fast to their Oath and the people served… Americans
    Smoke the DC phone boards, Tweet etc. use what ever legal means
    necessary to get this message out: OBJECT unseat the incumbent!

    Way off topic — but does anyone else here happen to visit Hillbuzz? The site owner and moderators seem to have just disappeared off the face of the earth. The site hasn’t been updated, or any new comments posted, since about December 3. There was no hint or warning that the site was going to be “discontinued” (if that’s the proper term). As far as I can tell, none of the commenters or moderators are posting anywhere else either.

    The site owner is from Chicago, and strongly anti-Obama. I’m not a person who automatically considers every odd thing to be a sign of some nefarious conspiracy, nor do I believe the “Chicago machine” threatened, kidnapped or otherwise “got to” Mr. Dujan. However, it would be good to at least get SOME idea of why such a busy, politically active site and all its main players are suddenly inactive for such a long period. Anyone have any info?

  36. coldwarvet……………..
    You hit the nail squarely on the head. At least there are still a few of us around who know UP IS UP,and DOWN IS DOWN. There are THOUSANDS of STUPID ASSES among us whose only knowledge is in procuring their next drug fix, how to pick their nose, and dine on it,and how to have offensive body odor. Yet it is these same twisted morons who try to reword the meaning of the Constitution. BTW these are also the same people who voted Soetoro back into office. Thanks to our LLIBERAL elementary school systems such people are a DIME A DOZEN. If you put a rifle in their hands and told them to defend their country,you would very quickly learn that damn few of them possess the intelligence quotient necessary to know how and when to tie their shoelaces, let alone know how to fight a WELL EDUCATED ENEMY.

    I still believe in Americans being Americans….we are a special kind of person, long on patience, but absolutely fierce when awake and aggrevated.
    All the guns being bought off the shelves do not appear to be your basic .22, and I don’t believe there has been a sudden renewed interest in rabbit hunting. I additionally do not believe that these weapons represent more “fun at the range either”. In additioin to all the guns, there appears to be a huge amount of paramilitary gear going out the door as well.
    I myself am holding to the actions of the Italians at the end of the Mussolini era. I believe they expressed their appreciation quite well, don’t you think?

    Obama Threatens Boehner: I’ll Use Inaugural Address And State Of The Union Speech To Bash Republicans…


    . . .Mr. Obama repeatedly lost patience with the speaker as negotiations faltered. In an Oval Office meeting last week, he told Mr. Boehner that if the sides didn’t reach agreement, he would use his inaugural address and his State of the Union speech to tell the country the Republicans were at fault.

    At one point, according to notes taken by a participant, Mr. Boehner told the president, “I put $800 billion [in tax revenue] on the table. What do I get for that?”

    “You get nothing,” the president said. “I get that for free.”

    “It’s Time for Media Control”

    Derek Hunter
    Dec 23, 2012

    “Was there anything about the Sandy Hook massacre the media got right on the day it happened? In their rush to be first, they ignored their obligation to be right. Nearly every detail they disseminated Friday was wrong, even down to the name of the killer. Their desire to sensationalize had them shoving microphones in the faces of children who couldn’t possibly comprehend the events of the day. This was just the latest example of how out of control and dangerous the media has become, and it’s time government did something to protect us.

    You’re probably asking yourself, “What about the First Amendment? Freedom of the press means we can’t regulate them, right?” Technically, yes. But since they, en masse, want to ignore the Second Amendment, to claim since it was written in a time of muskets, it is outdated and doesn’t apply to new guns, let’s apply the same to the First.

    The First Amendment was written in a time of movable type printing presses and quills, not 24-hour cable news channels and the Internet. Using the media’s logic, the First Amendment doesn’t apply.”

    “Report: House Members Seeking to Oust Speaker Boehner”

    Kate Hicks
    Dec 22, 2012 09:21 AM EST

    “As members prepare for the 113th Congress, several have been dissatisfied with Speaker Boehner’s conduct: he’s been accused of booting more conservative members off of major committees, and the abject failure that is “Plan B” seems to have been the final straw for some. Breitbart News reports that there’s a plan circulating in some offices intended to facilitate the election of a new Speaker of the House come January.

    Several conservative House Republican members are contemplating a plan to unseat Speaker John Boehner from his position on January 3, Breitbart News has exclusively learned. Staffers have compiled a detailed action plan that, if executed, could make this a reality.

    The circulated plan is a comprehensive multi-step process.

    According to the plan as drafted, the first step is to re-establish the election of the Speaker of the House by secret ballot, rather than by a public roll call vote. That’s because the members who would oppose Boehner, if there ended up not being enough votes to achieve their desired result or if Boehner scared via threat or coaxed via prize some of the opposition into voting for him, would be sitting ducks for retaliation in the near future.

    As one hill staffer considering this path told Breitbart News, the members involved in an unsuccessful coup d’etat would be “toast.”

    Mr Bill, try this.

    When I did I only got –
    “This link is not authorized by Yahoo!”

    Very strange!

    Again I ask why has Senate Resolution(SR)511 been removed from wikipedia??

    And the answer is Chairman Leahy states Senator McCain is a certified NBC because BOTH PARENTS were U.S. Citizens.

  57. The usurper is putting in place all his cronies in different capacities so that he can get away with all the crimes he wants. There are no checks and balances in this country with that dictator usurper criminal in thief.

  58. Regarding Boehner: How can a man who stood with the people at Tea Party rallies, stood in front of Congress yelling about passing the health care law when they hadn’t even read it, tried to tell Obama about the un-Constitutionality problem with the health care law at the C-Span debate, etc., change so drastically?

    I believe I know when it happened. Do you remember when Obama and Biden invited Boehner to go golfing? It seemed strange at the time, but one doesn’t turn down an invitation by the pres. and vice pres., right? Was this their opportunity to tell Boehner how the cow ate the cabbage? Right after that I noticed a change in Boehner. We know that the left gathers whatever dirt they can on someone to level the playing field, and if they can’t find any dirt, they make it up (look at the lies & exaggerations told about Romney & Ryan during the campaign). Was Boehner threatened or was his family threatened during that golf game? His reversal is much like the reversals of all these judges in the eligibility trials. He’s like a totally different man now. Something about all this stinks.
