Three Hours Of Obama Eligibility Discussion - on now!

3 Hours Of Obama Eligibility Discussion

Jeff Kuhner, conservative talker at radio station WTNT 570, in Washington, DC, announced yesterday afternoon that he is going to dedicate ALL three hours (12 Noon to 3 PM (EST)) of his show today, Friday, February 5th, to talk about and discuss Obama's birth certificate & constitutional eligibility to be POTUS.

To my knowledge this is an unprecedented amount of time on this issue by any talk show host. Kuhner is on at the same time Rush Limbaugh, but he is a fresh voice that is not afraid to call a spade a spade -- no pun intended -- that's the copy I received.

Apparently there will be some special guest on for the first hour followed by two hours of caller participation.

The Obama File

Lot's more to read about the Obama eligibility issue at The Obama File! Excerpts:

Another Doubting ThomasChelsea Schilling is reporting that the list of lawmakers and talkers questioning the eligibility of Barack Obama is growing.

Tennessee state Senate speaker and gubernatorial candidate Ron Ramsey has joined the growing ranks of officials and prominent commentators who say they are unsure of whether Barack Obama is a U.S. citizen.

Ramsey was asked Feb. 2 about the issue by Maclin Davis, a former state lawmaker and attorney for the state GOP.

"I don't know whether President Obama is a citizen of the United States or not," Ramsey responded. "I don't know what the whole deal is there."

"But I'm going to tell you something," he said. "When you walk out on the street down here, people don't really care about this issue. "When we get off on sidelines like that, that's when people say 'aw,' they close their ears and don't listen," Ramsey said. "I'm not saying you're not right, Mac, I'm not saying you're not right -- but that's not how you win elections."

According to the report, Ramsey acknowledged that he might be causing some apprehension among his political staff for even addressing the eligibility issue. "I've got a table full of advisers sitting over there, and they'll probably start cringing right about now when I start talking about some of this stuff," he said.

Two things:

1. The issue isn't about whether Obama is a citizen, or not. The issue is whether Barack Obama meets the "natural born" requirement of Article 2, Section I, Clause 5 of the Constitution of the United States of America -- here is some background info.

2. Ramsey is just plain wrong when he says, "people don't really care about this issue." Check out the numbers on this page.


Obama’s Final Act Has Begun

The Post & Email says that final theatrical act of the greatest shyster and swindler in the history of the world has begun, and there seems to be no exit strategy which will save his goose.

I speak of the Eligibility Crisis and Obama’s phony claims to legitimately hold the office of the U.S. Presidency.

The opening words of the final act were uttered by Obama himself, at this year’s National Prayer Breakfast, this morning (video, next item):

"You can question my policies without questioning my faith -- or for that fact, my citizenship!"

To explain why Obama said this, and why he has begun to run scared, one needs to consider the present political climate.

Following the Democrats’ stunning and historic loss of the U.S. Senate race in Massachusetts -- who would believe that one year ago? -- Obama’s party put in motion a political strategy which is pure Hillary-esq. While appearing to defend Obama by politicizing his birth story, the decision to engage head-on on that issue is undeniably the most byzantine and Machiavellian way to get rid of him!

According to Politico, it was the initiative of Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee Chairman Robert Menendez. Among the ten litmus-test questions for a politically acceptable Republican opponent in the upcoming 2010 elections, Menendez’s committee chose one wing-dinger:

From the article -- Where did O’Reilly find them (the birth announcements)? The Post & Email is the only site on the web where both have been published. Did he perhaps just read The Post & Email, or did he do actual research?

Actually, both birth announcements are here, on The Obama File, and have been here since their discovery. .

Re: O'Reilly -- what Big Bill thinks is irrelevant. There is not a court in the country that would accept two clippings from 50-year-old newspaper classified sections as evidence of anything. Just think about it. The birth announcements mean nothing. Try getting a driver's license with old newspaper clippings as documentation.

You can question my policies without questioning my faith, or, for that matter, my citizenship." (01:03)

Obama today at the National Prayer Breakfast raised the issue of his own eligibility for office -- saying that people shouldn't be questioning his "citizenship."

The questions, however, over Obama's "citizenship," actually go to the core of the American republic. Multiple lawsuits have challenged that he is not qualified for the Oval Office under the Constitution's requirement that U.S. presidents be a "natural born citizen."

The plaintiffs -- who run into the hundreds so far and who still have a number of cases pending at the appellate level -- have alleged that failing to meet that constitutional requirement means he actually is a usurper, with no actual authority to be president.

On a forum page at The Hill newspaper, one commenter wrote that Obama has only himself to blame for the questions.

"Personally I am no birther… but I am curious as to why Obama continues to beat on this issue... is it a political ploy by his handlers to continue to use this as a divisive issue? To try and embarrass a certain segment of the population? And if not, why doesn't he just provide the certificate and end all the speculation for the conspirators once and for all? Obama has certainly been a little less than forthcoming on his grades, his Harvard review publications and many other accomplishments…"

The reference apparently was the first time the issue has been addressed by Obama, even though he did not provided any answers. His press secretary, Robert Gibbs, repeatedly has ridiculed questions related to the subject, and the White House itself has declined to respond to any of a multitude of questions submitted over months on the issue.

Despite his protestations, I have to question the anointed one, since we have absolutely nothing in common. I'm an American -- I don't know what the hell Obama is.
