From Dean Haskins of Restore the Constitutional Republic:

“There once existed a “fringe movement” comprised of people who were publicly ridiculed for their specific and firmly held conviction—a conviction that ran counter to the generally held beliefs of their time.  As staunchly as they embraced what they knew to be truth, it seemed no less than futility trying to sway the vast majority to accept, or even consider, that knowledge.  The institutions that controlled the dissemination of public information condemned these “truth bearers” as unworthy of the slightest civility.  It even became dangerous to attempt to convince the masses that these contentions were, in fact, truth—so dangerous that one of the group’s leaders was eventually imprisoned for openly sharing his viewpoint, and then placed under house arrest for the remainder of his years.
 
Is this how history will recall us—the “birthers” of the early 21 century?  If it is, then it will likely be part of the account describing America’s demise.  This portrayal certainly looks accurate regarding what we’ve experienced, except for the leader’s imprisonment.  But, the “leader” to whom I am referring was Galileo Galilei, and the fringe movement of his day was the heliocentrists—those who believed the earth orbited the sun, and not the other way around.  Just because society considers beliefs that run counter to the understandings of the gullible masses to be “fringe” or “conspiracy theories,” doesn’t mean that those beliefs are not true.  The earth continues to orbit the sun.
 
There is a group of people, who rely on us to retain their jobs, who have still not provided truthful, informed answers to our questions about Mr. Obama’s eligibility to be president—the members of Congress.  While a very nasty bug has kept me pretty silent for more than a couple weeks, I feel I have now recovered enough to once again remember just how angry it makes me that these folks have arrogantly dismissed us as lunatics—and they are supposed to be working FOR us!
 
So, The WHY Initiative is now being implemented in full force.  Citizen Wells and I finalized it today, and we are ready to begin a new barrage of inquiries into the offices of our elected officials in Congress.
 
Here’s what we’re asking you to do: call, write, email, and/or visit the U.S. Representatives and Senators in YOUR state only.  Believe me, since they view getting re-elected as their most important job, they are really only concerned with keeping their constituents happy.  It does very little for someone in Ohio to contact an elected official in Kentucky—there’s no vote involved there, so the Ohioan means nothing to the Kentucky official.
 
We’re NOT asking for them to send you an answer to your request—we’ve already been sickened enough by their moronic lies.  No, all we’d like you to request of them is to enter into a dialogue with the representatives of our movement.  Citizen Wells and I will determine who will speak with any of them who appear willing.  In that dialogue, the question to which we’ll be trying to obtain an answer will be “Why didn’t you ask for proof that Barack Obama is a natural born citizen?”  We know they just HAD to have had a reason.  We’d now like to know what it was.
 
Here is a sample letter you can cut and paste, or you can take the specifics of it and write your own letter.
 
**********************************
Dear [Elected Official],
 
As you undoubtedly know, there are many people across the country who are aware and disturbed that Barack Obama has refused to provide proper documentation to prove he is a natural born citizen as required by our Constitution.  After the general election, many of your constituents communicated with you asking that you request a proper investigation into the matter, but you chose not to.
 
I am not asking you to provide more of the same debunked misinformation and deception with which many representatives and senators chose to reply to those previous requests; they were lies then, so they’ll continue to be lies.  What I am asking is for you merely to have a brief dialogue with the representatives of our movement to answer a simple question: Why didn’t you ask for the proof that so many of your constituents expected to be provided?  Why did you think Barack Obama was constitutionally eligible to be president?  Did you rely on the media for your decision?  Did you just trust snopes.com and factcheck.org?  Did you just believe that nobody could have ever been elected president without being properly vetted at some point in the process?  Were you threatened?  Were you provided with some communication directing you to ignore the inquiries? 
 
Through this initiative, The WHY Initiative, those in our ever-growing movement are committed to two things regarding the elected officials who will not provide honest answers to their constituents: we will refuse to financially support any of their efforts, and we will work to see that those officials are removed from office through the election process.  That would seem a steep price for you to pay when the alternative would be such an easy thing to do.  And, we are not interested in speaking with any of your staffers.  These answers should be answered by only you.
 
I don’t know about any of the other members of Congress, but I have confidence that you will be able to provide a legitimate answer to that question.  In fact, I have such confidence in you that I am expecting you to do so.
 
To make arrangements to provide your answers, please make contact at either of these email addresses:
 
Citizen Wells: citizenwells@gmail.com
Dean Haskins: dhaskins@restoretheconstitutionalrepublic.com
 
Or call: 434.525.1479
 
Thanking you in advance for your timely and forthright response.
 
Sincerely,
 
[NAME]
[CITY, STATE]
 
****************************************************
Here is an online resource with contact information for each state: http://www.visi.com/juan/congress/
 
Next, we’d like you to keep us posted about the contacts you are making, but rather than trying to keep up with, and categorize, countless emails, please keep us updated by posting your progress on our forum: http://www.restoretheconstitutionalrepublic.com/forum/index.php.  If you haven’t registered, please do so—it’s quick and painless.  There is a board on the forum labeled “Individual State Boards.”  Once there, you’ll see your state’s individual board.  Please post your updates there.  If you would be interested in being a coordinator for your state, please let us know.
 
I would just like to express my gratitude for the many kind sentiments I’ve received while I’ve been ill.  I cannot ever remember being so sick for so long.  I am profoundly encouraged by how many of you are choosing to remain steadfast in this battle, and it is your mettle that gives me the desire to step back into the ring and fight for all I’m worth.
 
We WILL be heard!!!
 
God bless each of you.

Congress Watch, WHY Initiative, US Constitution, US Congress, Obama eligibility, Congressmen, Senators, Representatives, Accountable, 2010 Elections, Military oath, Restore the Constitutional Republic

The WHY initiative is a new movement that evolved out of
efforts by the Citizen Wells blog US Constitution Hall of Shame
and Democratic Disaster (now Restore the Constitutional Republic)
and others to inform congressmen before the general election
and before Congress certified the Electoral College votes.
We are taking this effort nationwide and will be asking for
volunteers. Our initial efforts are to get some straight answers
on Obama’s eligibility and upholding the US Constitution. This
will continue on through the 2010 election cycle and beyond. We
must hold Congress accountable to the US Constitution and
American people.

Here are some exerpts from The WHY Initiative: Holding Congress Accountable

Prologue
“I am writing this as a concerned American, not as a Democrat, Republican,
Independent or other political position. I dislike modern political
parties, although in honesty, I am more disgusted with the modern day
Democrat party. We need more statesmen, less politics and putting
America first. I promise you I will go after Republicans with the same
veracity that I question Democrats.

You, I and most Americans have let this happen. Like the frog slowly
cooking in a pot of water, not realizing that it is being cooked, we
have allowed our institutions, like Congress and the Judicial as well
as the MSM, to cook our brains into a stupor of submission. Television
screens, just like the screens in the homes of “1984″ have brought us
just the “news” that the modern day Big Brother, the Obama Camp, wants
us to hear. Revisionist history and adoration of Big Brother.

The changes in this country did not occur overnight and our attempts
to restore obedience to the US Constitution and responsible institutions
will take time and effort. We have been given a wake up call. Just as the
“shot heard round the world” was a wake up call for the patriots of the
American Revolution, we must sieze this unique moment in history and
rise to the occasion. We have seen what will happen if we choose to do
otherwise. Join us in making Congress accountable to the American public.”

From the Mario Apuzzo lawsuit

“110. When so much doubt has been expressed in the public arena about Obama’s
eligibility to be President, Congress had a duty to investigate and confirm for
the sake of the Constitution and the plaintiffs and other American people which
it represents if Obama is so qualified by holding a Congressional hearing and
investigation on the matter with full subpoena power. Endnote 17.”

From Dean Haskins:

“The Death of Common Sense

The Birth of The WHY Initiative”

“Exactly when did common sense die in this country? Obviously, it has
been on life support for some time; but now that our collective national
synapses have stopped firing, we aren’t even in an era of philosophical
“gray.””

“By now, those reading this have likely heard all the constitutional
reasoning regarding the ineligibility of the UPOTUS (Unconstitutional
President of the United States).  However, in spite of our undaunted
pleas to our elected officials, it appears they continue to suffer a
profound inability to discern between truth and fiction.
In response to the many inquiries they have received, they continue to
reply with faulty logic, misinformation, and outright lies.  And, we
are becoming more and more aware of the fact that many, if not all, of
our correspondence with them has never even reached them.  There is a
fortified firewall between the elected officials and their constituents. 
That moat is commonly referred to as “staffers.”  I have been told that
many of the staffers simply toss the inquiries, and their bosses never
even see them.
From the many replies that people have received from the offices of
elected officials (for I am now very careful not to say that they are
actual responses from the officials themselves), there is an Orwellian
pattern of damaged brain matter in their words.  Here are some of the
more common blights of misinformation being proffered by this
inexplicable class of political zombies:”

We have created a new blog, Congress Watch, to place not only the
dialogue we have with congressmen during the WHY Initiative, but
going forward into and beyond the 2010 Elections. We will also
put information there to help convince congressmen that we do
indeed have a constitutional crisis with a usurper as president.
Letters of support and concern from the military will be posted
as well as efforts throughout the country to get congressmen to
listen to their constituents and obey the US Constitution.

We have already been in touch with concerned citizens and other
internet sites. Congress Watch belongs to the people just as the
US Constitution belongs to the people. We are seeking involvement
from other bloggers, internet sites and concerned Americans to
help in this endeavor. Sadly, our best efforts, hurried as they were
before the general election and Congress convening, fell on deaf
ears. That will not happen this time. Their apathy, arrogance
or other defects will be met with resolve of knowing that many
of them will seek reelection in 2010. They cannot ignore us for
very long.

We now have time to organize properly. We will get by congressional
aides to get answers from congressmen. A team of “experts” will
be available to answer questions in a professional manner, but
we will not accept defeat. We will demand straight answers from
congressmen.

What can you do to help?

Dean Haskins, who became chairman of Restore the Constitutional
Republic in January, has reorganized and secured the website
as a .com. We are requesting that those who want to organize
state efforts or assist to get the attention of their congressmen
go there and sign up:

http://www.restoretheconstitutionalrepublic.com

The efforts to get the attention of congressmen will be more
orderly than past efforts. We realize that the people of each
state are more apt to have insights into the office hours
and local meeting habits of their elected officials. We will
have our “experts” available as needed. The experts will not
be intimidated.

We are also asking for volunteers to help with Congress Watch.
Once again, we have short term and long term goals, however
the objective is always the same, holding Congress accountable.
Bloggers, internet sites or concerned citizens, if you would
like to help keep Congress Watch up to date with information
on congressmen and nationwide initiatives, leave a comment
on the blog:

http://congresswatch.wordpress.com/

We must seize the moment to regain trust in government and
control of this country.

God bless.

yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict,

Congress

 

Citizen Wells Intro to WHY initiative

We are moving ahead with the “WHY” initiative to hold Congress
accountable now and moving forward. Dean Haskins has set up
Restore the Constitutional Republic under a .com for organizational
purposes and we are finalizing plans to challenge congressmen across
the nation now and henceforth. Dean Haskins, the Citizen Wells blog,
other internet websites, attorneys, businessmen, the military and
millions of Americans are united to uphold and defend the US
Constitution. We are determined to get answers from congressmen.

Why did they believe that Obama is eligible?

Why did no member of Congress challenge the Electoral votes?

Despite our many concerns about policies and actions such as the
so called stimulus bill, we are determined to uphold the US
Constitution and make Congress accountable. This effort will move
forward through the 2010 elections.

Millions of Americans were stunned as every institution in this
nation connected with the 2008 election, ignored the US
Constitution and pleas from masses of the public to vet Senator
Obama. Congressmen ignored their constituents, as if part of
some conspiracy to ensure that Obama got elected.

So we are asking WHY.

The obvious red flag that most people get, the one I am certain a
5th grader could understand is, if Obama was eligible, why did
Obama employ an army of attorneys and spend great sums of money
beginning with Philip Berg’s lawsuit in August 21, 2008, to avoid
proving his eligibility. All Obama had to do is what John McCain
did, provide Congress with a vault copy of his birth certificate,
i.e., a real birth certificate, not a record of a birth certificate
like Obama has tried to do.

If you’re not as smart as a fifth grader then consider the following:

Obama traveled to Pakistan in 1981 on an Indonesian passport.

Obama’s father was Kenyan, under British rule.

Obama became an Indonesian citizen.

There is no legal proof that Obama was born in Hawaii.

If Obama was born in Kenya, his mother did not meet the eligibility
requirements for Obama to be a natural born citizen.

Consider this letter from a Brigadier General:

 
Charles E. Jones
Brigadier General US Air Force, Retired
Lifetime subject to recall for active duty
Recipient of the Distinguished Service Medal (AF)
02.04.09

“We the People of the United States of America” are entitled to know
the legal qualifications of the President and Commander in Chief. 
For the better good and National Security of “We the People of the
United States” and for Absolute Command of the Military Forces of the
United States, I whole heartedly support the efforts of Dr. Orly Taitz,
ESQ for taking legal action to determine whether or not Barack Hussein
 Obama, aka Barry Soetoro, Citizen of Indonesia and possibly citizen
of Kenya, is eligible to become President of the United States and
Commander in Chief of the United States Armed Forces.

We were notified today that 4 TN state representatives
have agreed to cooperate with Orly Taitz in her lawsuit.
Eric Swafford, Stacy Camfield, Glen Casada and
Frank Niceley  have signed a document demanding Obama
produce his documents:

Dean Haskins and I have begun the process of contacting
congressmen and we started with Representative Sue Myrick
and Senator Jim DeMint. We have been discussing possible
reasons why so many senators were misinformed or apathetic.
Perhaps much of the information sent to them was filtered
or blocked by their aides. Regardless, we want answers. Here
is a dialogue that Dean Haskins had with Ian Headley, an
aide to Senator DeMint. Please remember that we have not
yet spoken to Senator DeMint.

Beginning of dialogue:

 
I recently had an interesting exchange with one of SC Senator Jim DeMint’s staffers.  Now, understand, as far as legislators go, I think Senator DeMint is one of the better ones we have; however, on this particular issue, he appears to be either as uniformed, or as willfully negligent, as the rest of them.  At this point, I’m not sure which.  And I say that, understanding that it is possible he is not even aware this exchange even occurred (although I’d be surprised if, by my last two posts to him, Mr. Headley didn’t alert Senator DeMint of the “situation” he had just created). 
 
Some of us are now wondering just how many of our communications actually make it to the elected officials to whom we write.  It looks like the staffers provide quite a firewall between their bosses and We the People.
 
If this weren’t such a tragically dire situation for our country, it would be quite humorous.  It seems Mr. Headley wasn’t in the mood for a logical argument, but he obviously got a nice workout dancing around my questions.
 
So, see if you can tell where a bit of rudimentary logic pulled the wheels off his wagon.
 
Note: I start my letter by referencing my late brother who, until his death in 2000, was the Speaker Pro Tem of the SC State House.  He died of cancer at age 45.
 
********
Dear Senator DeMint:
 
By way of introduction, I am Terry Haskins’ brother.  I live in Virginia, and work in music production, ad and website design, and writing.  I am also the chairman of Restore the Constitutional Republic.  I pray that I may gain your consideration in this matter, simply because I understand you respected my brother, as he did you.  Before this last election cycle, I have never been a political “activist,” however, this issue has grabbed my attention, and I believe that, if he were alive today, Terry would have heartily joined me in the profound concern I have in this.
 
By now, I’m sure you are aware of the growing mass of concerned citizens throughout the U.S. who have legitimate questions about Mr. Obama’s natural born citizen status.  Many volunteers in several organizations worked tirelessly to provide the members of Congress with the pertinent information, and since you’ve recently been included as a defendant in one of the many lawsuits that have been filed across the country (Kerchner v. Obama), I’m sure you are aware of the constitutional issues that are being raised.
 
Senator DeMint, we are not conspiracy theorists, and we do not don tinfoil hats, as the liberal mainstream media would have everyone believe.  We are just everyday citizens who know something is not right, and who highly regard our Constitution.  I believe that you are a very intelligent person, but I don’t believe it even takes that much common sense to understand that someone doesn’t hire high-priced law firms to battle dozens of lawsuits if he does not desire to keep the very thing being asked for hidden.  There is obviously something on that document he does not want us to know—as well as all the other documentation he has sealed from public scrutiny.
 
That being said, this letter is really not intended as a vehicle by which to defend or expound the numerous claims that are being proffered.  This letter is more of a personal request.
 
I am in fairly frequent contact with many of the leaders of this grassroots movement, and, frankly, we have been dumbstruck at the obvious lack of inquest by any of our elected officials.  We know many of those leaders to have been quite vocal about unpopular matters in the past, and we are now trying to understand why not one member of Congress uttered even a whimper about this.
 
We know there must be a reason, and that is the purpose of this letter.  We would like an opportunity to sit down with you, face to face, and have you explain to us why this bizarre series of events unfolded as it did.  There simply must have been something that prevented an honest, open discussion about this, and we’d certainly appreciate knowing what that was.
 
I look forward to your response.
 
For our Constitution,
 
Dean C. Haskins

P.S.  I don’t know if you are aware that I designed a website in Terry’s memory.  If you haven’t seen it, it is located at www.terryhaskins.com
 
********
Mr. Haskins,
 
Thank you for your note.  Your brother meant so much to so many of us in South Carolina.  One of the highest points of Senator DeMint’s career was receiving the Terry Haskins award from the SC Republican Party.
 
I heard from Senator Thomas’ office and appreciate you contacting me.
 
I cannot speak for other Members of Congress and neither can Senator DeMint.  However, Senator DeMint has looked into the claims with regard to Barack Obama’s eligibility to hold the office of President.  Multiple court cases have reached the Supreme Court, through the legal framework of our nation.  Each case has since been dismissed.  It appears from all evidence available, the President was qualified under the Constitution for Congress to certify the electoral college vote.
 
You would need to contact other Members of Congress, if you have questions about their thoughts and actions on this issue.  Neither I, nor Senator DeMint, are in a position to explain their actions.
 
I wish you all the best, and encourage you to keep fighting to have the right policies implemented in our nation.
 
Sincerely,
 
Ian Headley
 
********
Mr. Headley,
 
Thank you so much for your speedy reply.  I genuinely appreciate it.  I would also like to express my gratitude for your kind sentiments about my brother.  I still miss him very much.
 
Please know that I mean absolutely no disrespect here, but your response is precisely the type of misinformation about which I spoke.  Since none of the cases dealing with the natural born issue have even had their merits heard, what standard of truth did Senator DeMint use to determine that Mr. Obama is, indeed, a natural born citizen?  Each of those cases was dismissed over issues of “standing.”  One can determine nothing of the merits of a case when it is dismissed on a procedural technicality.  Has Senator DeMint physically verified something to which nobody else has had access?
 
And, since the only proof Mr. Obama has proffered to date has been verified by two separate forensic document examiners to be a forgery, again, I ask, what is Senator DeMint’s standard of truth?  Please see this.
 
Your statement also seems to imply that there are presently no active lawsuits, which is simply not true.  Please look here.  In addition to the fact that Senator DeMint is one of the defendants in a procedurally active case (Kerchner v. Obama), please know that there continue to be new actions filed.
 
Please watch my video dealing with this issue here.
 
Mr. Headley, what has happened to common sense?  It appears no longer to exist.
 
Kindest regards,
 
Dean Haskins
 
********
Mr. Headley,
 
I just wanted to follow up and ask if I can expect an answer from either you or Senator DeMint regarding what specific evidence Senator DeMint used to determine, conclusively, that Barack Obama is a natural born citizen, since none of the dismissed cases had any of their merits heard.  I’m sure you can understand my concern, because a plaintiff not having standing to bring a case is certainly not the same thing as evidence being weighed by a court.  Your previous response seemed to indicate that Senator DeMint determined that Barack Obama is a natural born citizen simply because the Supreme Court believed the plaintiff’s were not legally able to have their cases heard. 
 
Please provide the evidence that Senator DeMint used to come to the conclusion he did.
 
Thank you,
 
Dean Haskins
 
********
Mr. Haskins,
 
I understand you are not satisfied with the results of the various unsuccessful court cases with regard to this issue.
 
However, you initiated this communication stating, “this letter is really not intended as a vehicle by which to defend or expound the numerous claims that are being proffered.”
 
Relying on your statement, I did not intend my response to engage in a discussion about the finer points of said ‘numerous claims’, nor will I do so now.
 
I believe my original response was clear as to the questions Senator DeMint is capable of answering.
 
I wish you all the best.
 
Sincerely,
 
Ian Headley
 
********
Mr. Headley,
 
I apologize that I apparently have not communicated well, and there seems to be a bit of a “disconnect” between us.  My statements have nothing to do with my level of “satisfaction” about the outcomes of cases that have been dismissed; merely that those “outcomes” had nothing to do with the natural born citizenship issue—only whether or not the court believed the person(s) bringing the cases had standing to do so.
 
And, I am not “defending or expounding the numerous claims that are being proffered;” I am simply asking for you to explain your original answer.  You said,
 
“However, Senator DeMint has looked into the claims with regard to Barack Obama’s eligibility to hold the office of President.  Multiple court cases have reached the Supreme Court, through the legal framework of our nation.  Each case has since been dismissed.  It appears from all evidence available, the President was qualified under the Constitution for Congress to certify the electoral college vote.”
 
To which I questioned what the evidence was that Senator DeMint used to determine that Obama is a natural born citizen, other than the various plaintiffs’ ineligibility to have their cases heard (which, again, is not evidence of natural born citizenship).  Having provided no additional information about evidence, your statement could easily be understood to be that Senator DeMint actually relied on no evidence whatsoever by which to come to his conclusion.
 
If that is what you are saying, then I will accept it at face value.  And, I actually already suspected that to be the case.  That is what prompted my original request for a conversation with Senator DeMint, to determine why he chose not to demand that evidence be provided, knowing that there were so many unanswered questions surrounding the issue.  I believe that the truthshould be within the scope of answers Senator DeMint is capable of providing, and it appears you have now provided that.
 
Thank you,
 
Dean Haskins
 
********
Mr. Headley,
 
I certainly did not desire to end our discussion on such a disagreeable tone; although, with just a bit of elementary logic, you should be able to see the fundamental flaws in your answers to me.  Actually, yours is not all that different from the numerous other replies we’ve received from the offices of Congress members. 
 
It truly is a sad commentary that none of our elected officials actually bothered to ask for the most basic proof that Barack Obama is constitutionally eligible to be our president.  We firmly believe he is not, and he continues to obfuscate anything that might possibly prove us wrong.  And my reason for contacting Senator DeMint was to find out exactly what his reasoning was not even to ask for such basic proof.  It’s not as if the members of Congress weren’t alerted about the problem, for we have people across this country who sent them certified letters, and then retained the documentation proving their letters were sent.
 
The 20th Amendment states, “If a President shall not have been chosen before the time fixed for the beginning of his term, or if the President elect shall have failed to qualify, then the Vice President elect shall act as President until a President shall have qualified . . .” Obviously, our forefathers envisioned a scenario in which someone would have attained the status of “President elect,” and then failed to qualify.  That would mean that, after he won the Electoral College vote, the founding fathers expected the members of Congress to verify that he was constitutionally qualified.  That simply did not happen with Barack Obama.
 
And we now believe we are in the midst of a constitutional crisis; hence the continued legal challenges, and the growing swell of military personnel (active and veteran) who are demanding this calamity be addressed.
 
Please don’t get me wrong, I admire and respect Senator DeMint.  I believe he is a fine statesman, and that is why I continue to labor over these communications.  In light of the fact that he is one of the many named defendants in Kerchner v. Obama, I believe Senator DeMint is in a singular position to get in front of this matter and lead our country out of this disaster. 
 
Senator DeMint could start a process to right this wrong by immediately calling for a congressional investigation into this matter.  He could declare to the joint houses of Congress that “We have erred by not exercising our constitutionally prescribed due diligence in this.”  Certainly, you can see the personal legal benefits he could derive from such actions; but, more importantly, he would go down in the annals of history as the one true patriot who actually fought for our Constitution.
 
I still desire to have a conversation with him.
 
For our Constitution,
 
Dean Haskins
Chairman, Restore the Constitutional Republic

End of dialogue

If you have been frustrated by congressmen that have ignored
your pleas to examine Obama’s eligibility problems, take
comfort in the fact that Dean Haskin’s brother was heavily
involved in SC politics. However, as will become obvious soon,
we do not give up easily. We, on behalf of the American public,
demand straight answers and we intend to get them. All of this
correspondence will be recorded and all congressmen will be
accountable sooner or later. There will be a day of reckoning
at least by the 2010 elections.

This is going to be a nationwide effort. We will be asking for
volunteers and hope to have an organization for each state. If
you have the desire and the resolve, go to the Restore the
Constitutional Republic site (new .com) and check often. In the
forum, there is a place by state where you can interact and sign
up. We have another site set up to collect and gather information
about each congressmen. We will use this going forward as a
clearing house for all efforts to hold congressmen accountable.
Details will follow soon.

http://restoretheconstitutionalrepublic.com/

Continue to contact your congressmen as you want. One thing that
we are trying to do with the WHY intiative, is to notify
congressmen that we will meet with them or otherwise establish
a dialogue and we will speak on authority. Citizen Wells and
Dean Haskins are initially available. We will be contacting
Orly Taitz and others to form an expert panel to answer any
questions or challenges provided. Orly has been doing some
of this already.

I know that many are impatient and frustrated. As I have stated
on numerous occasions, these problems did not come about overnight
and will not go away overnight. However, each step that we take
brings us one step closer to a safer, more just country.

God bless.

“The greatness of Napoleon, Caesar or Washington is only
moonlight by the sun of Lincoln. His example is universal
and will last thousands of years….He was bigger than his
country—bigger than all the presidents together… and
as a great character he will live as long as the world
lives.”

Defend

the

US Constitution

 

Abraham Lincoln spoke about preserving the US Constitution
and the union far better than I ever will. He lived it,
breathed it and made the ultimate sacrifice for it. Those
that wish to embrace Lincoln and be thought of in the same
sentence, must acknowledge that Abraham Lincoln stood for
something larger than himself, and be willing to sacrifice
for the good of all.

We are approaching the 200th anniversary of the birth of this
great man, born on February 12, 1809. A man for the ages.

“You can fool all the people some of the time, and some of the
people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all
the time.”
“I hold, that in contemplation of universal law, and of the
Constitution, the Union of these States is perpetual.”
“I therefore consider that in view of the Constitution and the
laws, the Union is unbroken; and to the extent of my ability I
shall take care, as the Constitution itself expressly enjoins
upon me, that the laws of the Union be faithfully executed in
all the States.”
“Let every American, every lover of liberty, every well wisher
to his posterity, swear by the blood of the Revolution, never
to violate in the least particular, the laws of the country;
and never to tolerate their violation by others.”
“I am exceedingly anxious that this Union, the Constitution, and
the liberties of the people shall be perpetuated in accordance
with the original idea for which that struggle was made, and I
shall be most happy indeed if I shall be an humble instrument in
the hands of the Almighty, and of this, his almost chosen people,
for perpetuating the object of that great struggle.”
“Fellow-citizens, we cannot escape history. We of this Congress
and this administration, will be remembered in spite of ourselves.
No personal significance, or insignificance, can spare one or
another of us. The fiery trial through which we pass, will light
us down, in honor or dishonor, to the latest generation.”

 

“I freely acknowledge myself the servant of the people, according
to the bond of service — the United States Constitution; and that,
as such, I am responsible to them.”
“America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter
and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.”

Lincoln speaks to us today:

“Let reverence for the laws, be breathed by every American mother,
to the lisping babe, that prattles on her lap — let it be taught
in schools, in seminaries, and in colleges; let it be written in
Primers, spelling books, and in Almanacs; — let it be preached
from the pulpit, proclaimed in legislative halls, and enforced
in courts of justice. And, in short, let it become the political
religion of the nation; and let the old and the young, the rich
and the poor, the grave and the gay, of all sexes and tongues,
and colors and conditions, sacrifice unceasingly upon its altars.”

 

“It is not merely for to-day, but for all time to come that we
should perpetuate for our children’s children this great and free
government, which we have enjoyed all our lives.”
“I appeal to you again to constantly bear in mind that with you,
and not with politicians, not with Presidents, not with
office-seekers, but with you, is the question, “Shall the Union
and shall the liberties of this country be preserved to the latest
generation?””

 

“Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this
continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to
the proposition that all men are created equal.

Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that
nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long
endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have
come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place
for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live.
It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.

But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate — we can not
consecrate — we can not hallow — this ground. The brave men,
living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far
above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note,
nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what
they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated
here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus
far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to
the great task remaining before us — that from these honored dead
we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the
last full measure of devotion — that we here highly resolve that
these dead shall not have died in vain — that this nation, under
God, shall have a new birth of freedom — and that government of
the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from
the earth.”

Our marching orders, from Lincoln:

“Don’t interfere with anything in the Constitution. That
must be maintained, for it is the only safeguard of our
liberties.”
“We the people are the rightful masters of both Congress and the
courts, not to overthrow the Constitution but to overthrow the
men who pervert the Constitution.”

 

“Neither let us be slandered from our duty by false accusations
against us, nor frightened from it by menaces of destruction to
the Government nor of dungeons to ourselves. LET US HAVE FAITH
THAT RIGHT MAKES MIGHT, AND IN THAT FAITH, LET US, TO THE END,
DARE TO DO OUR DUTY AS WE UNDERSTAND IT.”

 

“When the people rise in masses in behalf of the Union and the
liberties of their country, truly may it be said, “The gates of
hell shall not prevail against them.””
Join us in our endeavor to get straight answers from
congressmen and forever hold Congress accountable.

The

US Congress

must be held accountable

 Prologue

I am writing this as a concerned American, not as a Democrat, Republican,
Independent or other political position. I dislike modern political
parties, although in honesty, I am more disgusted with the modern day
Democrat party. We need more statesmen, less politics and putting
America first. I promise you I will go after Republicans with the same
veracity that I question Democrats.

You, I and most Americans have let this happen. Like the frog slowly
cooking in a pot of water, not realizing that it is being cooked, we
have allowed our institutions, like Congress and the Judicial as well
as the MSM, to cook our brains into a stupor of submission. Television
screens, just like the screens in the homes of “1984” have brought us
just the “news” that the modern day Big Brother, the Obama Camp, wants
us to hear. Revisionist history and adoration of Big Brother.

The changes in this country did not occur overnight and our attempts
to restore obedience to the US Constitution and responsible institutions
will take time and effort. We have been given a wake up call. Just as the
“shot heard round the world” was a wake up call for the patriots of the
American Revolution, we must sieze this unique moment in history and
rise to the occasion. We have seen what will happen if we choose to do
otherwise. Join us in making Congress accountable to the American public.

Citizen Wells
Many in this country are concerned about Barack Obama holding the
office of the presidency coupled with Democrats such as Nancy
Pelosi, et al controlling Congress. The “Stimulus” bill, that is
being ramrodded through Congress is also troubling. However, I,
along with others such as Dean Haskins of Restore the Constitutional
Republic, are more concerned about an illegal president and trampling
on the US Constitution.

Many Americans, and websites such as this blog made extensive efforts
before the general election to inform state election officials,
Electoral College Electors and members of Congress of the eligibility
issues surrounding Obama. Our efforts fell on deaf ears. Party politics
amd  misinformation ruled. We officially entered a manifested state
of Orwellian, “1984” like revisionist history, Thought Police and
doublespeak.

Thousands of Americans are outraged at the disregard for the US
Constitution and rule of law. Numerous lawsuits were initiated to
get all levels of courts to uphold the law. Many lawsuits are still
active. Electoral College Electors voted by party dictates, state
election officials passed the buck and Congress failed to do it’s
duty as part of this country’s checks and balances system. Despite
the numerous lawsuits, despite the efforts of thousands of constituents
and despite their duty to uphold the Constitution, Congress failed
the American public. On February 3, 2009 Rasmussen reported that the
Democrat controlled Congress had an approval rating of 12 %.

On January 8, 2009, Congress met to count and verify the Electoral
College votes. The Electoral College had failed to do their constitutional
duty and protect the American public from a usurper. Members of Congress,
who took an oath to defend the Constitution and having been notified
of Obama’s eligibility issues, had an obligation and legal duty to
challenge the Electoral College votes for an illegal candidate. From
Federal  election law:

UNITED STATES CODE

The following provisions of law governing Presidential Elections are
contained in Chapter 1 of Title 3, United States Code (62 Stat. 672,
as amended):

TITLE 3 THE PRESIDENT

Chapter 1. Presidential Elections and Vacancies

Counting electoral votes in congress
§ 15.
“Upon such reading of any such certificate or paper, the President of
the Senate shall call for objections, if any. Every objection shall
be made in writing, and shall state clearly and concisely, and without
argument, the ground thereof, and shall be signed by at least one Senator
and one Member of the House of Representatives before the same shall be
received. When all objections so made to any vote or paper from a State
shall have been received and read, the Senate shall thereupon withdraw,
and such objections shall be submitted to the Senate for its decision;”

No member of Congress issued a challenge and Senate President, Dick Cheney
did not call for objections as prescribed by law.

Conspiracy definitions from Wikipedia:

Conspiracy (civil), an agreement between persons to deceive, mislead, or
defraud others of their legal rights, or to gain an unfair advantage.
 
Conspiracy (crime), an agreement between persons to break the law in the
future, in some cases having committed an act to further that agreement.
 
Conspiracy (political), a plot to overthrow a government

From the Mario Appuzo lawsuit that includes
the Congress of the US as one of the defendants.
Filed in US District Court in NJ:

“102. No other political institution has a Constitutional duty to verify the
Constitutional qualifications of a President Elect.

103. Hence, the last political institution to make sure Obama is eligible and
qualified to be President was Congress under the Twentieth Amendment.

104. The Twentieth Amendment also provides procedure for what happens if the
President Elect does not qualify for the office to which he has been elected.

105. Each member of the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate has a duty to
the plaintiffs and the American people to do his or her due diligence and
demand all necessary records and question all necessary witnesses to determine
the true identity and eligibility of any would-be President.

106. Obama, as the President Elect, was subject to the “qualification” clause of
the 20th Amendment from December 15, 2008, when the Electoral College voted for
him.

107. On January 8, 2009, Congress in Joint Session confirmed Obama as the next
President of the United States even though he is not an Article II “natural
born Citizen.” Endnote 16.

108. Hence, Congress had from December 15, 2008 to and including January 8,
2009 to hold a fact finding hearing and subpoena documents and investigate the
challenges publicly expressed by plaintiffs and thousands of other Americans
regarding whether Obama is an Article II “natural born Citizen” and which were
even the subject of numerous law suits filed in our nation’s courts.

109. Thus Congress had over 3 weeks to hold a public hearing in the Senate,
House, or both to investigate the issue but they did not.

110. When so much doubt has been expressed in the public arena about Obama’s
eligibility to be President, Congress had a duty to investigate and confirm for
the sake of the Constitution and the plaintiffs and other American people which
it represents if Obama is so qualified by holding a Congressional hearing and
investigation on the matter with full subpoena power. Endnote 17.

111. Even though Congress was well aware of the thousands of people including
the plaintiffs who had petitioned Congress so that it could properly investigate
Obama’s qualifications to be President (Endnote 18 ) and that no court of law had
accepted any case raising the issue because of standing or some other procedural
obstacle, Congress violated the Twentieth Amendment by failing to assure that
Obama meets the eligibility requirements of Article II and confirming him as
President at a time when there was and continued to be such a national debate
regarding Obama’s Article II eligibility to be President.”

The level of outrage due to the US Constitution being trampled on has erupted
into a loud united voice from millions of Americans who have watched in disbelief
as the Executive, Judicial and Legislative branches of government have failed
them. This outrage comes from all strata of society including attorneys, business
people, regular Americans and many in the military.

 Consider the following letter:

Charles E. Jones
Brigadier General US Air Force, Retired
Lifetime subject to recall for active duty
Recipient of the Distinguished Service Medal (AF)
02.04.09

“We the People of the United States of America” are entitled to know
the legal qualifications of the President and Commander in Chief. 
For the better good and National Security of “We the People of the
United States” and for Absolute Command of the Military Forces of the
United States, I whole heartedly support the efforts of Dr. Orly Taitz,
ESQ for taking legal action to determine whether or not Barack Hussein
 Obama, aka Barry Soetoro, Citizen of Indonesia and possibly citizen
of Kenya, is eligible to become President of the United States and
Commander in Chief of the United States Armed Forces.

Thanks to Zach Jones is Home blog for the letter.

The Citizen Wells blog instituted the US Constitution Hall of Shame before the
general election to increase public awareness of Obama’s ineligibility to be
president and to hold accountable congressmen and other public officials. It
was hoped that those charged with upholding the US Constitution and protecting
the American public would get the message and vet Obama. That obviously did not
occur. The 2010 election campaigns will begin soon. Many of us still want answers
from congressmen as to why they believed that Obama was eligible and why no
member of Congress challenged Obama’s eligibility.

This is the formal announcement of a new initiative to hold
Congress accountable. The Citizen Wells blog, in conjunction
with Dean Haskins of Restore the Constitutional Republic and
many other concerned citizens, has begun the process of
contacting members of Congress to ask them why they believed
Obama was eligible and why no one challenged him. The American
public deserves to know the truth. Why did Congress not do
it’s job?

Was there a conspiracy?

Were people afraid of personal attacks?

Was there fear of riots?

Did every member believe Obama was eligible?

If so, why?

The WHY initiative.

We will if necessary, contact every member of Congress and will not take no
response as an answer. We have begun contacting 2 members, representative Sue
Myrick of NC and Senator Jim DeMint of SC. The responses we have received from
their aides is less than satisfactory. We will get answers from them.

Consider the following responses:

From Sue Myrick’s office.
Polk, Andy :Andy.Polk@mail.house.gov

“ohhh- I understand it correctly based on US Supreme Court cases interpreting
what “natural born citizen” Constitutionally means.  Had he not met the
definition, Chief Justice Roberts, the worlds leading Constitutional scholar,
would not have sworn him in because he would have violated his duty to uphold
the Constitution.  You can argue with me all you want on this issue, but I can
do nothing for you on this point.  The only thing you can do, if you feel so
strongly about Obama not being a citizen, is file a lawsuit in federal court.”

Sue Myrick, if you are paying attention, you may want to have a staff meeting.
Does Andy Polk speak for you? We intend to find out.

From Jim DeMint’s office:
Ian Headley

“I cannot speak for other Members of Congress and neither can Senator DeMint. 
However, Senator DeMint has looked into the claims with regard to Barack Obama’s
eligibility to hold the office of President.  Multiple court cases have reached
the Supreme Court, through the legal framework of our nation.  Each case has
since been dismissed.  It appears from all evidence available, the President was
qualified under the Constitution for Congress to certify the electoral college
vote.”

We eagerly await the opportunity to sit and have a dialogue with Senator DeMint.
Mr. Headley has stated that Senator DeMint examined all evidence available.
Perhaps they will share this evidence with the American public.

However, the smoking gun question still remains. The type of question that a
fifth grader can understand. If Obama was eligible, why did he employ an
army of attorneys and expend so many resources to avoid producing the evidence
that he was qualified.

Here is the email correspondence between Dean Haskins and Senator DeMint’s
office:

http://restoretheconstitutionalrepublic.org/wordpress/?p=86  

The comments from Senator DeMint’s office are fairly typical of those received
before Congress met on January 8, 2009. Here is an example from the US
Constitution Hall of Shame. A letter received from Senator Barbara Mikulski
of Maryland:

“Thank you for getting in touch with me. It’s nice to hear from you.

I appreciate knowing of your concern over a rumor that President-elect Obama is ineligible to serve as President because he is not a U.S. citizen.

The Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution states that “all persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States.” Since President-elect Obama was born in Hawaii two years after it was admitted as the 50th state, he is a natural-born citizen. He has released a copy of his birth certificate and it has been authenticated by experts. Following Obama’s overwhelming and undisputed victory in the recent election, the Supreme Court has considered challenges to his citizenship and dismissed them as being without merit.

Thanks again for contacting me. Please do not hesitate to let me know if I can be of assistance to you again in the future.

Sincerely,
Barbara A. Mikulski
United States Senator”

Here is the analysis of the letter:

1. “rumor that President-elect Obama is ineligible”
This is no rumor, it is a fact.

2. “Since President-elect Obama was born in Hawaii two years after
it was admitted as the 50th state, he is a natural-born citizen.”
Being born in Hawaii does not make Obama a natural born citizen.

3. “He has released a copy of his birth certificate”
He has not released a copy of his birth certificate!!!
Pay attention! He put up a highly suspect COLB on his site.
Learn more about Hawaii statutes below.

4. “it has been authenticated by experts”
You can’t authenticate what you do not have access to.

5. “the Supreme Court has considered challenges to his citizenship
and dismissed them as being without merit.”
The Supreme Court has dismissed none of the eligibility based
lawsuits on not having merit. Berg’s lawsuit is still before the
Supreme Court.
Visit the US Constitution Hall of Shame here. Read more letters
from congressmen and learn why Obama is ineligible.

This effort is now underway. It is the proverbial first step in a
“journey of a thousand miles.” We will get to the truth of this
matter and we will need your help. Information on how you can help
we be provided soon. In the meantime, let your congressmen know that
we mean business, now and going forward.  Let them know that their
constituents want them to discuss these issues with our
representatives
. We will be keeping a close eye on them. Forever.
