The Deafening Silence that
Signals Our Demise

Townhall, by Diana West

Original Article

Posted By:Drive, 4/5/2013 11:56:32 AM

Get ready for the last straw. First, though, I´d like to suggest that anyone reading this column in a local newspaper or news site pat the editor on the back for publishing what in our neo-medieval world of fear amounts to a forbidden column. Yup, I am about to say something about the Great Barack Obama Identity/Eligibility Scandal again. I know that this is one rich and urgent topic that doesn´t see the light of day in certain so-called news outlets -- and I say that from the experience of watching my own syndicated columns

All well and good Ms. West. Now kindly inform as to your preparations for Armageddon. Be specific. Have you buried gold in your backyard? Stashed weapons and ammo? Prepped to bug out? Where? Etc. Let believers (in anything), lay their cards on the table.

Hey, but let´s background check any citizen who may want self protection! Sarah Palin was indeed correct when she pointed the first background check for Obama!
And now we find out Moochelle considers herself a single mom. Just another ooops in the false narrative?

Oh, don´t worry. The left will tighten up their definition of natural born the second Rubio or Cruz try to run for president. They´ll become ultra-Constitutionalists.

I´ve wondered about the hospital that issued the so-called "birth certificate". Were there OTHER babies born that day or shortly before or after? What did their b/c´s look like and are they same or different than O´s? Who signed those other certs? How does O´s look like when compared to the OTHER ones?

Like mark Levin, I am tired of people re-interpreting the constitution to include parental status for eligibility. It´s not there and you can´t amend the constitution without Congress so those SCOTUS ruling don´t mean squat.

I am not tired of this subject and admire the author´s courage. Not even Hannity is brave enough to talk about O´s falsified BC. Some day the truth will come out hopefully and then we can call the MSM fools to their faces. Just think, this is the biggest fraud ever in the history of our country and folks like Pelosi are covering it up. Unreal!

That´s it in a nutshell. Obama is not eligible to be president of the United States, and as stated neither is Rubio, Jindel, nor Cruz.

I would ask those whom are SURE to refute Diana West´s assessments in posts to follow mine, to give us all what you think was the reason the term ´Natural Born´ was inserted into the constitution, and whom is born in the United States, who does NOT qualify as a natural born citizen.

I am with Ms. West. The country is over, and no I am not going to tell anyone where I buried the gold coins, but I´ll listen if you want to tell me where you buried yours :-)
Instead of going out to a movie, maybe a few extra boxes of Lipton Noodle Soup is a better choice. New carpet or a generator? How are you going to heat your house if the electricity and gas are off - a couple cords of wood for the fireplace may be a good buy. Maybe its time to buy that little cabin outside the country.

If the theory of #9 is correct, then his father was American and that issue is disposed. Look at the evidence of the Frank Marshall Davis as father of BHO and you may be convinced too. Their are photos and connections tending to a compelling case that his grandfather used Barack Sr. as a schill to explain his daughter´s inconvenient pregnancy with an even more undesirable.

#3, on February 17, 2011, Palin was asked whether she had any questions about Obama´s birth or citizenship. Her reply: "I don´t, and those are distractions. What we´re concerned about is the economy. And we´re concerned about the policies coming out of his administration. and what he believes in terms of big government or private sector. So, no, the faith, the birth certificate, others can engage in that kind of conversation. It´s distracting. It gets annoying, and let´s just stick with what really matters."

If the marriage was invalid (B.O Sr. was likely a bigamist)does that then make Da Won a NBC due to the mother? Or do other factors come into play such as her spotty residence in the USA?

Her larger point was the fraudulence of the supporting materials from the state of Hawaii used to verify his eligibility for the office--for starters.

History takes a long time to write. 75 years after WW II there are still new books on the war and new interpretations of evidence found. So it will be with Obama but it will be long after people on this forum have gone to their rewards. I have suffered my own personal disillusion with Obama virtually from the moment he ran in 2008. I can understand people hiding medical records like JFK and I can understand why Bush 43 hid his DWI from the public. I cannot comprehend, however, how we can dismiss the endless number of issues Obama´s past.

The people can vote to change the Constitution and since he was voted in and Congress did not bring up any Constitutional questions it is assumed that it is the people´s will. Now we can nominate CRUZ and Rubio. Hooray! And I don´t want to hear any complaints from this side.

Not re-interpreting the Constitution at all #6. Natural Born is so self explanatory that the founders saw no need to define it. But they did think is was so important that when defining the 3 - and only 3 - requirements to be president, they didn´t say citizen, they said ´Natural Born´ citizen, and it is the only place in the Constitution where the term is mentioned.

This is the single most important issue since Barry the Fraud announced his candidacy in 2007. The second is that not one single member of Congress, let alone those like Levin, have brought this forth, and any and all efforts to bring this before the courts have be dismissed for lack of ´standing´.

Many of us are of the informed opinion that we are living under a criminal and fraudulent government. Everything, EVERYTHING, that has had Barry the Fraud´s signature attached to it since January, 20, 2009 has no legal validity. How do we hit that reset button?

Natural born - 2 citizen parents. If, as many suspect, that Frank Marshall Davis is the real father, that would make Barry the Fraud the offspring of 2 citizen parents, but would complete repudiate his "autobiography" that the British subject Barack Obama was his father.

This guy is a fraud eight ways to Sunday with no verifiable paper trail and enough investigation into what we have seen that those documents are falsified. I can´t think of a bleaker point in American history than what we are living through currently, Civil War included.

I remember that statement very well #12, and on this site I replied: ´Even Babe Ruth struck out, and Palin has struck out on this issue´. Ann Coulter besmirched the birthers at about the same time.

#9: That´s a plausible possibility. I´ve seen those comparison photos, as well.

Actually obama more closely resembles Malcolm X. Regardless of any situation, obama has presented himself as a fraud.....there is no getting around that. Either he lied in his ghost written book, in his original pamphlet to promote his first book, when he got into Occidental, how he got into the other universities. Either he was Lying back then or he is Lying now.
obama has a tendency to lie each and every time he flaps his lips.

There are two scandals here. The first is that Obama perpetrated this birth-certificate fraud. The second is that the media (all of them, except WND, American Thinker, Lucianne and Diana West) refuse to report on the scientific investigations of forgery, and have made the forgery a forbidden subject, relegating anybody who dares to bring it up to tinfoil-hat status.

The forgery is obvious to the naked eye.

The public was essentially told that Hawaii Department of Health officials took a bound volume of original paper 1961 birth certificates, turned to Obama´s, placed it on the copier, copied it onto green security paper, stamped and embossed-sealed it, then delivered it to Obama´s lawyer to be flown back to Washington. In which case, the digital PDF "birth certificate" released by the White House must be fake - because near the left margin, especially at the top of the document, the text and lines of the form bend downward (to simulate the bending of the page near the binding). It´s impossible for a copier to do that bending.

You can try this yourself, with any thick book (such as a dictionary) which has text near the centerfold. There isn´t a copier in the world that will bend the text downward as the page curves away from the glass. Out of focus, yes, but never bent.

The bending in the forgery is typical of a microfilm image, probably one the forger scarfed off the Internet.

For further proofs of the forgery, look at the articles at American Thinker by author "Nick Chase" - most of which have previously been posted on Lucianne.com

I´m with #9 Frank Davis is the baby daddy.
What I have a problem with are the SS# fraud, fake draft registration and his school grades don´t exsist and Obama listed as a foreign exchange student. Obama couldn´t pass a background check to work for UPS and he became Presiden.
We will be surprised at the depth of this if and when the truth is known.
This is a hoax and the nation fell for it. Eligable or not Obama is the worst un-American president in all the nations history bar none.

The vast majority of Americans have never cared a whit about any of this, and nothing that could be conclusively proven would move any individual´s opinion of Obama one way or the other.

Is this apathy indicative of a rotting and dying republic? To some extent it is, but it is only one of many symptoms of the disease which is taking down America and the West.

Bear with me a moment, please.

Why would all those WWII victims plod quietly to the gas chambers? Apathy? Now ask yourself why none of the Jewish defenders at Masada was taken alive...or why the Alamo was defended to the last man. Refusal to give the hated enemy a victory perhaps?

Diana West forces us to face ourselves. We appear to be so apathetic about our fate that we will do nothing to prevent our demise. Let us rail at John Roberts and Sean Hannity for not sacrificing themselves to save us. But let us not risk anything to prevent our slide into slavery.

How about we engage in a national civil disobedience operation, risking fines and/or jail until we learn the truth about Obama? I´d be for that. It just galls me no end to live with the knowledge of so much heroic behavior in response to tyranny while doing nothing myself.

The deeper,more dangerous hazard here does not lie with the details of this case (monumental, though they are)but rather with the Leftist propensity to dis-allow discussion or even mention of subjects which cast light on their activities.

Imagine if Richard Milhouse Nixon had had a credible shot at controlling the media and the universities at the time of his supposed ´crimes´. Un-imaginable. But the Left plays victim all day long while plotting and planning against the longevity of your liberty.

All the Constitution says is that the President shall be a natural born citizen. It does not state what the definition of a NBC is. In Minor Vs Happersett the SCOTUS laid out some inclusions and some exclusions in this class. But it left a whole big area of people who have only one citizen as parent, for example, undefined. The current SCOTUS should accept a case and rule on the matter instead of wasting their time on homosexual marriage.

This issue will not go away until we´re given some credible evidence to settle it. While I´m not sure one way or another as to the Emperor´s birth status, I do believe that "long form" certificate was an electronic forgery.

As to what qualifies as a "natural born citizen": add that to the Constitutional amendment t.b.d. list. That would be the same amendment that would disqualify "anchor babies". We know what must be done; there´s just no will to do it.

#16: I am posting primarily to give you recognition. You are either well-informed on your own efforts; have read my posts on the eligibility matter; or both.

A couple general comments:

a. "Founders didn´t define NBC." They didn´t define "year," "army," "mail," or a batch of other words. The Constitution is a governance document, not a dictionary! Hey, they didn´t even define what "is" is.

b. People not familiar with de Vattel´s "The Law of Nations," or the Founders´ discussions of NBC rooted therein, have no standing to claim they are making informed comment on the issue.

c. Barack Hussein Obama, by his own words, does not meet the requirements for the office of President of the United States. Period. End.

Diana West, when the day comes that you are vindicated for your words, and I pray that day comes soon, I will be proud to add my voice to your cheering section. I have firmly believed what you are so eloquently saying since BHO’s first day on the national stage. He elected to relegate his past; birth certificate, school records, travel/passport records, etc., etc. to one of mystery and, while on the subject of cheering sections, our media elected to abet his decision. I eagerly await the day when he and they are exposed for what they’ve done and feebly attempt to explain it all away. I’d buy a front row ticket for that.

What would be the verdict if the following individual decided to run for USA President, would he be an eligible "Natural Born" US citizen?

His Mother was born in the British Isles in 1905 to a married father and mother who were also born in the British Isles. Before his marriage and while living in the USA in the 1890´s his mother´s father was naturalized as a US citizen. There is no evidence that he ever renounced US citizenship when he returned to the British Isles and lived there until he died. His mother´s mother also spent time in the USA in the 1890´s but was never naturalized, she returned to the British Isles, and married his mother´s father before she was born. His mother came to the USA in about 1928 and lived here until she died decades later.

His father was born in the USA in 1916 to a mother who was born in Canada to two married parents who were also born in Canada. His father´s mother came to the USA as an adult and married his father´s father before he was born. His father´s father was born in the USA to two parents who were US citizens by birth.

Complicated, especially when you take into account the principle of derivative US citizenship (hint). Bottom line, is our guy a Natural Born US citizen?

Everyone who bucks Obama gets hurt somehow, some way. Those who do speak out are ignored or called tinfoil hatters.

The videos showing exactly how the birth certificate was forged are accurate and everywhere on YouTube. Evidence that O is not qualified to be POTUS is everywhere. Yet nothing has been done and no one with standing (Congressmen, Governors, Senators, etc.) has tried to bring this case before a Court. And which Court would even take the case?

Our national character, what´s left of it, is gone. We´re a nation of crybabies, wusses and bloodless people who would rather die ignominiously, than die for a good cause, or, heaven forbid, be labeled a racist.

I pray I don´t live long enough to see America die. Rush Limbaugh said today that America is dying.

For goodness sakes Folks. Lets put aside the Natural Born Clause for a minute and look at the fact that this Criminal who calls himself Obama . Presented a Forged BC to the American People ON LIVE TV. Do any of you think you could get away with this in your wildest dreams? This is the largest cover up and Fraud in American History and we are still sitting here arguing over Natural Born Citizenship. Not a single Law Maker will address it because they are ALL GUILTY of Misprision. And they ALL know it.

It began hundreds of years ago, deep in the Albanian Alps—an unusual tradition where women, with limited options in life, took the oath of the burrnesha. A pledge to live as a man. To dress like a man, to work like a man, to assume the burdens and the liberties of a man. But these freedoms came with a price: The burrneshas also made a pledge of lifelong celibacy. Today these sworn virgins live on, but their numbers have dwindled. Many Albanians don´t even know they exist. What happens when the society that created you no longer needs you? And

Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) sat down for an exclusive interview with ABC News’ Jonathan Karl following his speech at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), and from the beginning was met with a barrage of questions over his outspoken criticism of President Obama. The interview, which aired on Sunday’s This Week w/ George Stephanopoulos, featured a myriad of topics including repealing ObamaCare. During the segment, Senator Cruz mocked how the “media treats that as a bizarre proposition” to which Karl laughed and asserted “it is because he’s not going to sign it.

“With hindsight, I know Adam would have killed me in a heartbeat, if he’d had the chance,” Peter Lanza said in a series of interviews for the March 17 issue of the New Yorker magazine. The piece, “The Reckoning: The Father of the Sandy Hook Killer Searches for Answers” by Andrew Solomon, is a powerful narrative of the family’s troubles. It’s the first time Peter Lanza has spoken publicly about his son. “It was crystal clear something was wrong,” the article quotes the father as saying. “The social awkwardness, the uncomfortable anxiety, unable to sleep, stress, unable to concentrate, having

Investigators suspect a vanished Malaysian airliner may have been blown out of the sky — just like the jumbo jet that rained deadly wreckage onto Lockerbie, Scotland, in 1988. As Vietnam reported the possible sighting of an aircraft door from the missing plane, a senior official involved in the probe of its disappearance said the evidence so far “appears to indicate that the aircraft is likely to have disintegrated at around 35,000 feet,” Reuters reported. Asked if that suggested a bomb blew up the Boeing 777, the source said there was no evidence yet of foul play, but noted the closest parallels

In the last two months, there has been a rash of suicides and mysterious deaths sweeping the world of high finance. JPMorgan has been hardest hit, with three untimely deaths in just the last few weeks, and last week Autumn Radtke (left), a 28-year-old CEO of First Meta, a small cyber-currency exchange, jumped to her death in Singapore. Historically, suicide rates rise during times of financial stress and economic downturns. Now, though stocks are at or near all-time highs, for many Wall Street bankers these are times of setbacks and stress. Today’s bankers are not a settled, comfortable bunch anymore. A day doesn’t

Rick Perry delivered one of the best-received speeches so far at the Conservative Political Action Conference, bringing the audience to its feet and eliciting loud cheers Friday morning as he outlined a small-government vision and praised the accomplishments of fellow Republican governors. Perry, whose 2012 presidential campaign crumbled amid a series of missteps — including the infamous “oops” moment, in which he forgot one of the three federal agencies he wanted to abolish — is weighing another go-round in 2016, and his allies insist that this time, the campaign would go differently.

Armed men thought to be Russian have seized a Ukrainian military base in the Crimean city of Sevastopol. A Reuters news agency journalist said no shots were fired and negotiations between the two sides were going on. Interfax-Ukraine earlier reported that about 100 Ukrainian servicemen had been deployed at the base before the raid. Troops wearing Russian uniform without insignia and their supporters have blockaded bases in Crimea since taking control of the peninsula last week.

Obama’s bizarre immigration rules

Last month, President Obama took an action making it easier for supporters of Islamist terrorists to be granted asylum in this country. At the same time, persecuted Christians face a brick wall at the Obama State Department in their efforts to secure refugee status, and a report this week reveals Israeli officials are now finding it more difficult to get simple visitor visas or to even renew existing visas. Why is all of this suddenly emerging? After the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, none of us ever imagined a dozen years later we’d be negotiating with the Taliban in Afghanistan, supplying aid

The Obama administration announced a new policy on Wednesday that will allow many people to renew their existing insurance policies for two more years even though the policies don’t provide the comprehensive coverage and consumer protections required by the Affordable Care Act. The move is designed to provide political cover for Democratic senators facing tough re-election campaigns in Republican-leaning states where the president is especially unpopular. The Democrats have been hit with a barrage of attack ads from conservative political-action groups highlighting the cases of individuals who complained that they faced higher premiums when their old (less comprehensive) policies were canceled

Is Mitt Romney getting the band back together? The 2012 Republican presidential nominee has invited his debate prep advisers and senior campaign aides to his mountaintop chalet in Park City, Utah, for a weekend of skiing later this month, according to two people close to Romney. The reunion of Romney´s political brain trust comes amid a burst of positive buzz about the former Massachusetts governor -- from favorable reviews of "MITT," the Netflix documentary about his campaigns, to chatter among some powerful GOP donors about another Romney presidential campaign in 2016.

The 300,000-member union that was the first to endorse then-Senator Barack Obama has released a devastating Obamacare report that says Obama´s controversial healthcare program will slash worker wages by up to $5 an hour, reduce worker hours, and exacerbate income inequality. The report by Unite Here--a North American labor union that represents workers in the hotel, gaming, food service, manufacturing, textile, distribution, laundry, and airport industries--is titled: "The Irony of ObamaCare: Making Inequality Worse." "Ironically, the Administration´s own signature healthcare victory poses one of the most immediate challenges to redressing inequality," states the 12-page report. "We take seriously the promise

NATIONAL HARBOR, Md.—Rand Paul handily won the presidential straw poll at the Conservative Political Action Conference Saturday, one gauge of the Republican base’s mood less than two years before the 2016 primary season kicks off. The Kentucky senator received 31 percent, far ahead of second place Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), who received 11 percent. Neurosurgeon Ben Carson finished third with 9 percent, ahead of New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who received 8 percent. The announcement came at the end of the group’s annual three-day confab. Organizers said that 2,459 attendees voted on computer kiosks.

During House Minority Nancy Pelosi´s address at the 2014 California Democrats State Convention on Saturday in Los Angeles, she told a story about an unnamed House Republican telling her the GOP does not care about hungry children in America. Pelosi claimed the unnamed "friend" called the poor and hungry "invisible". Pelosi used that same exact same rhetoric in early February at her weekly press briefing only then instead of friend it was the rock band U2 that gave her the "invisible" line... Pelosi on Saturday: "I asked a Republican friend why his party remains so opposed to extending the vital

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) wowed the beltway elite and even Democrats during Saturday´s annual Gridiron event, showing why the Ivy Leaguer has confounded and been vilified by many with whom he shares the same intellectual pedigree. The annual D.C. roast is hosted by the exclusive Gridiron Club, which is composed of D.C.´s mainstream and "elite" journalists. Cruz has degrees from Princeton and Harvard, which those in the permanent political class covet, and he can do their social rituals better than they can. Yet Cruz refuses to be co-opted by them politically, instead choosing to be a staunch conservative who represents

Here was the Morning Joe panel bemoaning Ted Cruz´s supposed incivility at CPAC in allegedly insulting war hero Bob Dole, when up pops Mike Barnicle to ask "what does it say about CPAC, where the most popular speaker they had, the one who received the most rousing reception is a moron, Sarah Palin?" A bit later, Mika Brzezinski piled on, calling Palin a "multi-million dollar moron." When Joe Scarborough challenged her, saying "you don´t think that, right?", Mika didn´t retract her slur, saying only that Palin is "savvy in selling a message that makes a lot of money." View the

Virgin CEO Richard Branson said that those who are skeptical of man-made global warming should “get out of our way,” joining the ranks of CEOs lashing out against those opposed to business investments in “sustainability.” Branson made his remarks in the wake of Apple CEO Tim Cook’s telling global warming skeptics to “get out of this stock” if they did not agree with the company’s green investment strategy. Cook made his comments after being confronted by a free-market activist who pressed him on putting the environment ahead of profitable investments. “If you want me to do things only for [return on investment] reasons,

The most dangerous parts of a flight are takeoff and landing. Rarely do incidents happen when a plane is cruising seven miles above the earth. So the disappearance of a Malaysia Airlines jet well into its flight Saturday morning over the South China Sea has led aviation experts to assume that whatever happened was quick and left the pilots no time to place a distress call. (Snip) The problem had to be big enough, he said, to stop the plane´s transponder from broadcasting its location, although the transponder can be purposely shut off from the cockpit.

CBS News investigative correspondent Sharyl Attkisson has reached an agreement to resign from CBS News ahead of contract, bringing an end to months of hard-fought negotiations, sources familiar with her departure told POLITICO on Monday. Attkisson, who has been with CBS News for two decades, had grown frustrated with what she saw as the network´s liberal bias, an outsized influence by the network´s corporate partners and a lack of dedication to investigative reporting, several sources said. She increasingly felt like her work was no longer supported and that it was a struggle to get her reporting on air.

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- By now, and by god, it should have settled permanently in the consciousness of the nation what a huge and untoward gamble with the country John McCain and his campaign took in 2008 when they elevated Sarah Palin from her rightful place on the tundra to the political celebrity she currently enjoys.

“I told you so.” Those have to be four of the most satisfying words in the English language. And Mitt Romney has earned the right to speak that short sentence, over and over again, whenever he chooses. Not that he would — it would be “unbecoming,” to use one of Romney’s old-fashioned words that in 2002 had the mandarins of Political Correctness harrumphing about his “sexism,” I believe the charge was that time. But these days, Mitt looks more and more prescient, and his critics ever more deluded. First of all, Russia has become “our number one geopolitical foe,” as he put it
