Harry Reid, Nevada, US Constitution Hall of Shame, Senator Reid disregard for Constitution, First Amendment rights, Deceptive Senate Health Care Bill, Taxation Is Voluntary, Presidential eligibility, Natural born citizen, Obama, Birth certificate, Freedom of press

Instead of writing one big article on Senator Harry Reid of Nevada, I will be writing a series of articles on Reid. Harry Reid is involved in so much dirty party politics and has negatively impacted this country in so many ways that one article does not do this subject justice.

Since Harry Reid was instrumental in ramroding through an illegal candidate for president, Barack Obama, and in supporting the usurper in office, it is fitting that we look at the core issue of why Harry Reid behaves as he does.

Harry Reid, as is true of many in Congress, has an ignorance of and disregard for the US Constitution. The Citizen Wells blog highlighted this fact by inducting Reid into the Hall of Shame in 2008.

The Citizen Wells blog and it’s well informed viewers and commenters are not the only ones to believe that Harry Reid has a disregard for the US Constitution.

From the Wall Street Journal, January 3, 2009.

“Harry Reid v. the Constitution”

“An Illinois court will eventually decide if Governor Rod Blagojevich is guilty of corruption. But on at least one issue he is more law-abiding than Majority Leader Harry Reid and fellow Democrats: the seating of Roland Burris to replace Barack Obama in the U.S. Senate.”

“Meanwhile, Mr. Reid and Washington Democrats are refusing to seat Mr. Burris, never mind their lack of authority to do so. As an initial matter, they’re hiding behind the Illinois secretary of state, who is refusing to certify the appointment. But Mr. Burris has asked a court to order the secretary of state to carry out what under state law would typically be a nondiscretionary duty. In any event, Beltway Democrats can’t inject themselves into what is clearly a matter of Illinois law.”

“While the Constitution says the Senate can determine its own membership, the Court in Powell interpreted Article I, Section 5 to say that “in judging the qualifications of its members, Congress is limited to the standing qualifications prescribed in the Constitution.” Nowhere in the Constitution is there a “qualification” saying that a Senator must not have been appointed by an embarrassing Illinois Governor.

Mr. Reid is also attempting the dodge of referring the matter to the Senate Rules Committee, which is run by Democrats, but the Powell precedent ought to be clear even to political lawyers. If Mr. Reid wants to banish Mr. Burris, he must first seat him and then persuade two-thirds of the Senate to expel him. Needless to say, the last thing Mr. Reid wants to do is create turmoil in his party by expelling an African-American Democrat whose only offense has been to accept an appointment to serve. But if Mr. Reid does go that route, we’d suggest worthier expulsion possibilities, such as Connecticut’s Chris Dodd, who received sweetheart mortgages from Countrywide Financial while sitting on the Banking Committee.”

“Republicans want Illinois to hold a special election for the vacant seat, and we recommended that ourselves (as did Mr. Obama) when the Blagojevich tapes first became public. But now that Mr. Burris has been appointed, Mr. Reid can’t legally deny him his seat. If this is the way Democrats are going to use their new monopoly on Beltway power even against a member of their own party, we’re in for an ugly couple of years.”

From American Thinker, October 9, 2009.

“Watching the Constitution Disappear”

“The President says the Constitution is defective, and now Senator Harry Reid is preparing the coup de grace.”

“Once Reid and Obama emerge from their transparent closed-door consultations on how to blend the two competing Senate Health Care bills, Senator Reid has a nifty parlor trick up his sleeve.  The normal course of legislative events would be to debate and vote on the bill on the Senate floor, and then send the result to a House-Senate conference committee.  The committee would then blend the final House and Senate bills into a product acceptable to both houses.”

“The rub here, and the reason Senator Reid has conjured up his little parlor trick, is the Constitution of the United States, Article I, Section 7:
All bills for raising revenue shall originate in the House of Representatives, but the Senate may propose or concur with amendments as on other bills.
Technically the amended bill will have originated in the House, in the same manner that a blank piece of House letterhead stationary originates in the House.  This trick has apparently been used for expediency on past occasions, but the far-reaching and perhaps irreversible effects in this case, combined with the obvious intent to pull a fast one on America, lead one to question the respect for the American people exhibited by our so-called representatives, aka our elected royalty.  Congress plans to employ a technicality to pay lip service to the Constitution, using the shell of a House bill to in effect make a hollow shell of the Constitution.”

Harry Reid has no regard for First Amendment Rights and freedom of the press.

From News Busters, August 30, 2009.

“Harry Reid Threatens Las Vegas Newspaper”
“Harry Reid, perhaps emulating the bullying tactics of an out-of-control Obama administration, has openly wished for the Las Vegas Review-Journal to ‘go out of business’ – a newspaper which has held opposing political viewpoints with the Senator. 

But then, is this really shocking coming from a veiled supporter of the Fairness Doctrine?

The comment came when Bob Brown, the Journal’s Director of Advertising, met with Reid at a Las Vegas Chamber of Commerce luncheon.  During the simple process of handshaking, an exchange in which most people with an ounce of class can pull off without issue, Reid said to Brown:  “I hope you go out of business.””

“Frederick’s column ends with this thought:   “…we serve notice on Sen. Reid that this creepy tactic will not be tolerated.”  The question remains, will Nevadans also serve notice come the election in 2010?”

Harry Reid not only does not understand the law, he is out of touch with reality.

U.S. Senator Harry Reid – “Taxation Is Voluntary”

 

From Letters sent to Harry Reid regarding eligibility issues surrounding Barack Obama. This was part of the US Constitution Hall of Shame effort on this blog.

Letter 1

“I received the following letter and wrote a response to Harry Reid after an e-mail I sent him in November imploring him and all leaders to uphold the Constitution. He of course is one of the biggest idiots in the whole Washington elite THUGS!!! I will also post the letter and response my husband sent him in a seperate post. My initial e-mail to all elected officials in the state of Nevada…………………………….=============================

To Whom It May Concern:

I am a citizen of the United States of America and specifically the state of Nevada. Many of our citizens are getting caught up in what they are coining a “historic election” in electing the first black man to the highest office in our land. However, as a concerned citizen and patriot I am demanding that all of you state officials who represent my voice……. demand that we know who the people of this country elected to be POTUS in the name of Barack Obama.

He has not been forth coming with a lot of his background and history. We have not seen his official birth certificate that contains a state seal. My husband was born in 1961 also and his official birth certificate looks nothing like the one Mr. Obama is trying to pass off as authentic. No one has seen any detailed medical documents. A one page note from a doctor stating he is okay is not sufficient. My daughter needs more than that to be admitted back into school after a 3 day absence!!!

It is a requirement per our Constitution that anyone wishing to be POTUS must be a “natural born citizen”. To date no one has seen Mr. Obama’s birth certificate except for two people in Hawaii who say it exists. Now Obama has ordered this information to be sealed. As an American citizen and registered voter I have a vested interest in learning the truth here and we need you to act and act NOW!!!!!!!!!

I can’t and won’t support this president-elect until he comes clean with who he is and if he meets all of the qualifications to hold the most powerful job in the world!!

AS OUR GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS YOU HAVE AN OBLIGATION TO US TO SEE THIS THROUGH BEFORE OUR CONSTITUTION HAS BEEN PROSTITUTED BY AN ANTI-AMERICAN FRAUD!!!!!

Sincerely,

Jacqlyn xxxxxxx
Henderson, Nevada

P.S. If you happen to be an official of the Electoral College then I am requesting you vote on December 15, 2008 against Barack Obama and for the real patriot in John McCain…… unless Mr. Obama proves to the American people before then that he meets all the requirements to become “our” leader and entrust “our” lives and the lives of “our” children to him!!!!”

Letter 1 response

Dear Mrs. xxxxxxx

Thank you for contacting me. I appreciate hearing from you.

According to Article I, Sections 2 and 3 of the Constitution, any person serving in the United States House of Representatives must have reached the age of twenty-five and must have been a citizen of the United States for at least seven years, and any person serving in the United States Senate must have reached the age of thirty and must have been a citizen of the United States for at least nine years. In addition, Article II, Section 1 mandates that a person must have reached the age of thirty-five and be a natural born citizen in order to serve as President of the United States.

As you mentioned, some reports have surfaced that my former colleague, President-Elect Barack Obama, is not a natural-born American citizen. These reports are false. Barack Obama was born on August 4, 1961, in Honolulu, Hawai’i. His birth certificate is a matter of public record of the State of Hawai’i and is available online through various news sources, as well as on the Web site for the nonpartisan, nonprofit Annenberg Political Fact Check: http://www.factcheck.org. I hope you find this information useful.

Response to Harry Reid’s response:

 

“HR:=========================My e-mail responding to his Dec. 5th e-mail!!!! Quite pathetic…..I haven’t heard from him since!!!

Mr. Reid—-Please look at the above e-mail I received from you!!! Is this a joke??? Do you really believe you can fool all the people all of the time? What you have written here is a lie and what Mr. Obama is trying to pull over on the American people is a CRIME!!! How stupid do you think we are??? Now ….as an elected official for the state of Nevada, I demand that you uphold the Constitution or you too will be committing a crime of TREASON!!! Now don’t send me this type of e-mail again until you show me the authentic, original vault copy of Mr. Obama’s birth certificate!!!! What you are telling me to check is not a copy of his original birth. The place you are sending me to has already been checked and everyone knows it is a FRAUD and not what is appropriate evidence to show one is eligible to be President. If you think it is then you have no right representing me in Washington. I would term you to be as stupid as stupid could be!!!! As my state’s Senator I will be waiting for your reply and it better not be the nonsense you just sent OUT!!!! THIS IS

UNBELIEVABLE!!!!! DO YOUR JOB THAT WE TAX PAYERS PAY GOOD MONEY FOR!!!!!!

Husband’s reply to Reid

“Dear Senator Reid,
Though the question of the authenticity of Senator Obama’s birth certificate is still in question – Sen. Obama has ties to the “non-partisan” factcheck.org” cited in your correspondence – even had he been born in Hawai’i, the federal law at the time would have caused him to have assumed the citizenship of his father. His father was born in Nigeria, a British colony at the time; therefore, Barry was born a British citizen as the USA did not allow dual citizenship in 1961.

One would think that you, with all of your resources and experience, would be aware of this. Perhaps if you were a bit more enlightened and more desirous of the truth rather than political gain, you might try and represent your constituents and put this issue to rest before a grave injustice is done and Barry is sworn in as POTUS.

Once again, I am disappointed in the “Democratic” process that you and your ilk feign to carry out.

Thank you for the form letter response and feel free to re-adjust your blinders.

Best regards,
Patrick xxxxxxx”

December 30, 2008 – Harry Reid enters US Constitution Hall of Shame

Las Vegas NV tea party, August 31, 2009, Tea Party Express, Citizen Wells report, Sports Center of Las Vegas, Nevada, Will CNN and MSM cover this tea party?

Yesterday, the Citizen Wells Blog posted the announcement of a Tea Party to be held today, Monday, August 31, 2009 in Las Vegas, NV. We have a reporter on the scene and will provide updates as we get them. CNN is supposed to have their CNN Express news bus on the scene in Nevada and hopefully other media outlets will cover this story. Will Harry Reid pay attention?

Thanks Upstate Warrior for this video link:

*** Update from the local Fox affiliate (this was very brief)  September 1, 8:30 ET ***

“Rally Held Against Big Government
Las Vegans Hold Tea Party Rally

POSTED: 5:48 pm PDT August 31, 2009

Hundreds of people protested in Las Vegas against what they characterized as big government.

 Those who turned out at the Sports Center of Las Vegas Monday for the Tea Party Rally criticized what they call big government — things like bailouts and deficit spending — as they waved signs.

*** Update from on the scene reporter – September 1, 2009 5:30 PM ET ***

“CW,  We were at the Party from 8:45am to 2:00pm.”

“We were there first.”

“We were not allowed to be by the grandstand,… due to our signs.  THEY WERE ANTI OBAMA.  The organizer said that the media would have a hay-day with them.  (ridiculous to say the least….. XXXX (my husband was HOT!)  I WILL SEND YOU PICS OF THEM”

Here is the announcement from yesterday:
“ATTENTION NEVADANS: We need your urgent help!
 
We here at the Tea Party Express have been informed by several national news media outlets that they will be on hand to cover our “Tea Party Express” rally in Las Vegas, Nevada this Monday, August 31st at 11:00 AM.  The rally will be held at the Sports Center of Las Vegas (located at 121 E. Sunset Road).
 
We know this is not the most convenient time for some people to attend a rally, but we simply must have a huge crowd on hand.  To help underscore why this is so important, consider this:  CNN is planning on having their CNN Express news bus.  Some news outlets will be broadcasting live.  We can’t afford to have a rally with a small crowd on hand (especially given how successful the “Tea Party Express” rallies have been so far these first two days).
 
So we need your help.  If you live close enough to Las Vegas to attend the rally (even if you have to take an early lunch) then PLEASE make it to the rally.  Load up your car with as many people as you can.
 
If you live too far away, or absolutely cannot attend, then we need your help to get the word out.  Forward this email on to everyone you know.  Post messages to online discussion forums and blogs.  Call anyone and everyone you know who lives in or near Las Vegas.

Hall of Shame

A letter received from Senator Harry Reid of Nevada
regarding Barack Obama’s eligibility issues:

“Thank you for contacting me. I appreciate hearing from you.

According to Article I, Sections 2 and 3 of the Constitution, any person
serving in the United States House of Representatives must have reached
the age of twenty-five and must have been a citizen of the United States
for at least seven years, and any person serving in the United States

of the United States for at least nine years. In addition, Article II,
Section 1 mandates that a person must have reached the age of thirty-five
and be a natural born citizen in order to serve as President of the
United States.

As you mentioned, some reports have surfaced that my former colleague,
President-Elect Barack Obama, is not a natural-born American citizen.
These reports are false. Barack Obama was born on August 4, 1961, in
Honolulu, Hawai’i. His birth certificate is a matter of public record
of the State of Hawai’i and is available online through various news
sources, as well as on the Web site for the nonpartisan, nonprofit
Annenberg Political Fact Check: http://www.factcheck.org. I hope you
find this information useful.

Again, thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts with me.

Harry Reid has zero credibility.

Harry Reid is complicit in this fraud.

Enough said.

Why Obama is not eligible

What Hawaii Health Official really said

Latest information on court cases

From the Alan Keyes lawsuit

“A press release was issued on October 31, 2008, by the Hawaii Department
of Health by its Director, Dr. Chiyome Fukino. Dr. Fukino said that she
had “personally seen and verified that the Hawaii State Department of
Health has Senator Obama’s original birth certificate on record in
accordance with state policies and procedures.” That statement failed to
resolve any of the questions being raised by litigation and press accounts.
Being “on record” could mean either that its contents are in the computer
database of the department or there is an actual “vault” original.”

“Further, the report does not say whether the birth certificate in the
“record” is a Certificate of Live Birth or a Certificate of Hawaiian Birth.
In Hawaii, a Certificate of Live Birth resulting from hospital documentation,
including a signature of an attending physician, is different from a
Certificate of Hawaiian Birth. For births prior to 1972, a Certificate of
Hawaiian Birth was the result of the uncorroborated testimony of one witness
and was not generated by a hospital. Such a Certificate could be obtained up
to one year from the date of the child’s birth. For that reason, its value
as prima facie evidence is limited and could be overcome if any of the
allegations of substantial evidence of birth outside Hawaii can be obtained.
The vault (long Version) birth certificate, per Hawaiian Statute 883.176
allows the birth in another State or another country to be registered in
Hawaii. Box 7C of the vault Certificate of Live Birth contains a question,
whether the birth was in Hawaii or another State or Country. Therefore,
the only way to verify the exact location of birth is to review a certified
copy or the original vault Certificate of Live Birth and compare the name of
the hospital and the name and the signature of the doctor against the
birthing records on file at the hospital noted on the Certificate of the
Live Birth.”
