"Skeptics", "Deniers", and World Class Scientists

By Alan Caruba

After spending time at the largest gathering of world class climatologists, meteorologists, physicists, engineers, and economists, among other very brainy folks, I came away with the feeling that the battle remains joined by this hearty group, otherwise derided as skeptics and deniers of global warming.

The occasion was the second annual International Conference on Climate Change sponsored by The Heartland Institute, a Chicago-based free market think tank. The place was New York City and the gathering involved seminars on all aspects of the bogus science put forth by the global warming alarmists. The conclusion should come as no surprise. There simply is no valid science that supports the claim that the Earth has warmed dramatically, is warming dramatically, or is likely to warm dramatically.

I find it almost amusing—if it weren’t so important—that the alarmists never make any mention of the fact, verified by weather satellites, that the Earth has been in a decade-long cooling trend and some who have examined it think it will continue for twenty or thirty more years. The increased severity of winter weather events around the world is testament to that. It is not getting warmer. It is getting colder.

Vaclav Klaus, president of the Czech Republic and serving also in a rotating term as president of the European Union, received a standing ovation at the beginning and end of his presentation. “Their true plans and ambitions (are) to stop economic development and return mankind centuries back,” said Klaus of the globally united environmental organizations and the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.

It’s worth pointing out that the IPCC is not about “science”; it is about “government” as the name implies and, despite claims of scientific authority, its computer climate models and the claims based on them are held in universal disdain by the relative handful of men who understand climate or weather.

As Klaus noted, the alarmists are “not able to explain why the global temperature increased from 1918, decreased from 1940 to 1976, increased from 1976 to 1998, and decreased from 1998 to the present, irrespective of the fact that the people have been adding increasing amounts of carbon dioxide to the atmosphere.”

“It is evident that the environmentalists don’t want to change the climate. They want to change our behavior…to control and manipulate us,” said Klaus. That’s what all totalitarian regimes want to do.

Sadly, anyone watching the behavior of leading scientific organizations knows that they have thrown their prestige behind the alarmists, giving awards and honors to the likes of Al Gore and NASA’s James Hansen when it is obvious to all that both are engaged in the worst kind of hucksterism and charlatanism. Many of these organization’s members are less than thrilled by this further evidence of the politicization of science.

Great dangers do exist for Americans and others around the world for whom the Big Lie of carbon dioxide emissions is being used by the White House and in Congress to justify legislation that would impose “cap and trade” regulations and by an Environmental Protection Agency that is poised to regulate CO2 as a “pollutant” under auspices of the Clean Air Act. It is a massive fraud.

It will prove enormously costly to every kind of business and industry in America. It has the potential of undermining the economy to a point where we shall never be able to recover from the present financial crisis.

All this was on the minds of those attending the conference. It should be on your mind too and it is why you have to ask your elected representatives and senators, “Why do you want to raise my energy prices?” That’s the ultimate punishment every American will bear because regulation of CO2 is about energy use of every description.

Why do you want to raise my energy prices? If they tell you it’s because of global warming, tell them you will not vote for them and in 2010, vote them out of office!

Compared to the thousands of environmentalists running about issuing notices of doom, a gathering of 800 men and women from around the world may not seem like much, but they have something beyond value on their side; the truth!

Why was Nuclear Energy capability sabotaged around the world, especially in the USA?
It was under the Ford Administration that a policy to terminate nuclear reprocessing was stated in a paper written in 1975 by Dick Cheney, Ford’s Chief of Staff. However it was a man called Albert Wohlstetter, a US Nuclear Strategist who, in the 1950s, decried the use of civilian nuclear energy. It was he who mentored some of today’s most famously known Neo-Cons such as Bob Dole, Margaret Thatcher, Paul Wolfowitz and the Malthusian, Bertrand Russell, to name just a few, super-influential people alive and dead.
Wohlstetter was against civilian nuclear energy – period. His view of a New World Order did not allow for unlimited population advancement. One of his ardent followers, Wolfowitz, even wrote his doctoral thesis in which he stated that nuclear desalination in the Middle East was a bad idea. That is debatable, today, depending on which country, but his was a blanket approach to deprive huge swathes of mankind a better life and to be brought into the 20th century and away from the Dark Ages in which most of them live.
It was the idea of ‘non-proliferation’ which was applied to ensure that the ‘Atoms for Peace’ did not spread for the benefit of the world’s poor. Wohlstetter stated that the benefits of nuclear energy for civilian use were a myth, a policy he pushed throughout the 60’s and 70’s and it was his study in 1975 that led to the US abandoning the use of plutonium for civilian reactors.
In fact there was an enthusiastic and complete top-to- bottom and bottom-to-top bureaucratic stitch-up against nuclear energy which was started under Ford, maintained under Carter and on ever since. Those who are ‘for’ nuclear have been pigeon-holed, throughout.
Development, the economy and science, itself, do not enter the lexicon in the effort to drive out the nuclear option from the US. Riding on the back of such policies authored by influential individuals, groups and Foundations during this period in the 1970s, it was just a short step for extremist and environmentalist groups – the new Greens, ex Reds – to jump on this runaway band wagon and push for all it was worth. All it took, then, to put the heebie-jeebies up a skeptical and gullible public was Three Mile Island in 1979 and Chernobyl in 1986 to seal the fate of nuclear for decades.
So far so good; the Neo-Cons plans were going well as they are, still.
Why is it that our humanity allows a single man to have so much influence over others; to cause a retrograde step to the betterment of mankind; to keep nuclear technology suppressed for decades into the past and yet more into the future?
Fear of the nuclear option is the ignorant fear of the ongoing propaganda.
A double whammy exists for countries like South Africa who have the capacity for great development if only they had the electrical energy generating capacity. Being so close to that possibility, by utilizing the safe technology of the pebble bed modular reactor, powerful financial elements are doing their utmost to sabotage South Africa’s effort in order to retain control of the raw materials theft that that country holds in abundance. The PBMR offers the promise to liberate many of the world’s dark corners and bring them into prosperity; the Neo-Con policy is diametrically opposed to such liberation. That very promise is causing the technology to be sabotaged. The ‘greedy’ are no lovers of the ‘needy’ as self-sufficiency, or energy enough to spare, is not in their financial or ideological interests.
I can only conclude that the same irrational ‘reasoning is used by the Warmist who, surprise surprise, we see as being the same bunch of powerful ideological, bureaucratic and financial clowns.
No, the pure truth of the science will never dissuade these people; they have an agenda to fill. Unfortunately, it will impoverish and kill hundreds of millions.

Watch the curve balls carefully!!!

Present Curve ball #1
Obama gives the appearance to the American public that he has inherited all our present problems from the prior administration when in fact he personally has helped to create it. Before his election he and a few of (what I call thugs) had rudely and uninvitedly attended a bankers meeting in Baltimore MD., and demanded that the banks give sub-prime loans to people that would not normally qualify including illegal immigrants. Then when the timing was right the price of gasoline sky rocketed causing many home foreclosures and a downward spiral of our economy. The price of gasoline will again go up drastically because the American people’s will have not yet been broken. It has been said that with any crisis there is opportunity. Well if a crisis is created then there would be opportunity for that individual. This was all part of his long term plan for the over through of the United States of America from within. I heard on the news this morning that Sharee Law is in some banks. Now let’s think about what has happened, why and what will happen. Our government has been trying to force banks to take our tax payers money even when they say they do not want or even need it. I ask why???? After banks take the money then they are required to abide by our governments existing rules and new rules and regulations to come. All this is performed in the smoke screen of goodness when in fact it is evil! His true and final goal for our total financial system is to impose Sharee law on us all claiming it will be the answer to our financial system! Our system has worked and would continue to work if our government would in all reality allow it to work. It cannot work because our leaders will not allow it to work because of the plan for the ultimate goal!

Present Curve Ball #2
National health care is also part of the master plan. With this national health care will also have a requirement of everyone to have verichip implanted under their skin. Why??? It will enable our now communist government to not only instantly see all our medical records but be tracked by gps and will also reveal exactly each individuals entire history and even if that person has ever said anything negative against him or his resigm. I have read this chip is already being used in the U.K. The computer will then tell the doctor what medication to administer. If you are a rebel in any sort of way you may be exterminated in such a way that will not be seen. Maybe a slow death by medication or with the false prognosis of a deadly illness or some other believable lie. This chip will also reveal if you are in accordance with Sharee law. If you are not then you will also be in very big trouble and will be, by their mouth a trader and a threat to the field of flowers and sunshine and goodness for all.

Present Curve Ball #3
Obama really wants wasteful spending because it prevents the people of this nation from focusing and seeing exactly what his ultimate goal is. If he did not want the wasteful spending he could easily stop it. It has to pass his desk before it becomes law. His trip to Ohio on Air Force One at $50,000.00 per hour to attend a ceremony for twenty five jobs created proves this. His trip could have paid for many of the new employee’s yearly salary!!!

Present Curve Ball #4
Stimulus plan is a joke. Federal money paid to the states probably means that affirmative action is in effect for job creation. That means a large portion must go to minorities to include illegal aliens!!!!

Present Curve Ball # 5
Obama has and is presently using the African American people and Hispanics for his personal backing to achieve his final goal when in reality he does not really care about them at all. The only thing he cares about is for the Islamic faith to be imposed and forced on everyone. The African Americans must some how learn of this before even their faith is stripped away in the name of false hope of goodness for all. He has deceived the African American community.

Present Curve Ball #6
Obama says he is against terrorist when in fact he supports it. He has given Hamas $900 million. Now they will have much more then rockets to fire on Israel. Israel had taken two months of rockets being fired on them before retaliating. Gaza Strip deserved it for doing evil. Obama rewards for doing evil because he is evil.

Present Curve Ball #7
Why does he have to have digital TV? TV was always just fine for me!! Digital sends direct signals while analog is scrambled. Digital will allow someone to see exactly what each individual is watching and at what time. I believe it will also enable some important news to be blocked instantly from being heard or viewed. We heard of a Pastor being shot in an Ohio church and I found it very strange that His name was being with held.

Present Curve Ball #8
Obama says he wants new energy. This is bullshit. He is just saying this to pacify many organizations to back him. Our government knows that we already have an alternative energy source in natural gas that will last us for enough years to come up with some other alternative. It would save in my opinion much of this economy. He does not want this economy to correct itself right now for the timing is off for his major laws to be mentioned and take effect!!!! He first has to break the backbone of the American people. Though the timing is not too far off!!

Present Curve Ball #9
Obama has created 300,000 jobs for illegal immigrants. This is a major curve ball so I believe something big is about to be introduced very soon. He is really trying to distract everyone’s thoughts from his true plan now.

Past Curve Ball #10
Obama’s legal citizenship was in question so I have copied and pasted an article. Note the date of Berg case



Obama camp: Lawsuits by citizens are 'garbage'
Legal challenges spring up across U.S., demand proof of eligibility for office

Posted: November 13, 2008

© 2009 WorldNetDaily

More than a half-dozen legal challenges have been filed in federal and state courts demanding President-elect Barack Obama's decertification from ballots or seeking to halt elector meetings
, claiming he has failed to prove his U.S. citizenship status.
An Obama campaign spokeswoman told WND the complaints are unfounded.
"All I can tell you is that it is just pure garbage," she said. "There have been several lawsuits, but they have been dismissed."
WND is tracking the progress of many cases across the U.S., including the following:
David M. Neal of Turtlecreek Township, Ohio, filed suit in Warren Common Pleas Court in October to force Ohio Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner to request documents from the Federal Elections Commission, the Democratic National Committee, the Ohio Democratic Party and Obama to show the presidential candidate was born in Hawaii, the Cincinnati Enquirer reported.
Warren County Magistrate Andrew Hasselbach denied Neal's request, saying, "The onus is upon one who challenges such public officer to demonstrate an abuse of discretion by admissible evidence – not hearsay, conclusory allegations or pure speculation."
Connecticut resident Cort Wrotnowski challenged the authenticity of Obama's birth certificate on Oct. 31, and asked the court to order Secretary of State Susan Bysiewicz to verify Obama's citizenship before allowing the candidate to appear on the state ballot. State Supreme Court Chief Justice Chase T. Rogers threw out the case for lack of jurisdiction within a half hour of reviewing it.
"I have not seen the ruling yet," Wrotnowski told WND. "So, in reality, the case was not heard on its merits. … Currently, we are assembling information for another and better try."
As WND reported earlier, Steven Marquis of Fall City, Wash., filed suit Oct. 9 in Washington State Superior Court, calling for Secretary of State Sam Reed to determine whether Obama is a citizen before Election Day. Marquis released a statement saying the state has the authority to "prevent the wholesale disenfranchisement of voters" who might have otherwise had the opportunity to choose a qualified candidate should records show Obama is not a natural-born U.S. citizen.
Marquis said Obama's Hawaii birth certificate isn't evidence that the president-elect is a natural-born citizen because it doesn't reveal the hospital where Obama was born, a doctor's name or the baby's footprint, the Associated Press reported.
Superior Court Judge John Erlick dismissed the lawsuit, claiming the secretary of state does not have authority to inquire about Obama's birth certificate. He also said Marquis failed to name Obama as a party to the lawsuit.

New Jersey
In Leo C. Donofrio v. Nina Mitchell Wells, Secretary of State of the State of New Jersey, retired attorney and New Jersey resident Leo. C. Donofrio asked the U.S. Supreme Court for an emergency stay on Nov. 3 prohibiting three candidates from appearing on New Jersey's ballots: Republican candidate John McCain, Democratic candidate Barack Obama and Socialist Worker's Party candidate Roger Calero.
Donofrio claimed the candidates are not "natural born citizens" as enumerated in Article 2, Section 1, of the Constitution of the United States, which states, "No person except a natural born citizen of the United States, at the time of adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the office of President."
He wrote, Obama is not eligible for the presidency "even if it were proved he was born in Hawaii, since … Senator Obama's father was born in Kenya and therefore, having been born with split and competing loyalties, candidate Obama is not a 'natural born citizen' …"
"Republican candidate John McCain was born in Panama," the request states. "Socialist Workers Party candidate Roger Calero was born in Nicaragua. And the birthplace of Democratic candidate Barack Obama has not been verified by Respondent."
Donofrio said Panama has never been considered U.S. soil, and that McCain is merely a citizen at birth by statute, and not a "natural born citizen."
With three ineligible presidential candidates on ballots, Donofrio warned, New Jersey voters will "witness firsthand the fraud their electoral process has become."
Justice David Souter denied Donofrio's application on Nov. 6. However, his case is still pending as an emergency stay application. Donofrio is resubmitting his request for an emergency stay of the national election results and Electoral College meeting to Justice Clarence Thomas.
(Story continues below)

As WND reported earlier, prominent Pennsylvania Democrat and attorney Philip J. Berg filed suit in U.S. District Court three months ago claiming Obama is not a natural-born U.S. citizen.
Berg claimed that by failing to respond Obama has legally "admitted" to the lawsuit's accusations, including the charge that the Democratic candidate was born in Mombosa, Kenya.
U.S. District Judge R. Barclay Surrick dismissed Berg's argument on Oct, 24, ruling that he lacked standing to bring the case. He said Berg's allegations were "too vague and too attenuated."
"This is a question of who has standing to uphold our Constitution," Berg told Jeff Schreiber of America's Right blog. "If I don't have standing, if you don't have standing, if your neighbor doesn't have standing to question the eligibility of an individual to be president of the United States – the commander in chief, the most powerful person in the world – then who does?"
Berg filed a writ of certiorari in the U.S. Supreme Court on Oct.30, to force Obama to produce his birth certificate. Justice David Souter rejected an emergency appeal on Nov. 3, for the court to halt the tabulation of the 2008 presidential election results until Obama documented his eligibility to run for office. However, Souter set a schedule for a response from Obama, the DNC and all co-defendants on or before Dec. 1.
"I look forward to receiving Defendant Obama's response to the Writ and am hopeful the U.S. Supreme Court will review Berg v. Obama," Berg wrote in a Nov. 7 statement. "I believe Mr. Obama is not a consitutionally-qualified natural-born citizen and is ineligible to assume the office of the President of the United States."
Rev. Tom Terry of Atlanta, Ga., appealed to the Georgia Supreme Court the day before the election to determine authenticity of Obama's original birth certificate and his qualifications to be president.
"I bear no personal ill will against Barack Obama," Terry, an independent, said in a statement. "In fact, his election solely on the basis as the first African-American president-elect is a very positive thing for our nation. However, as an American, I have very grave concerns about Mr. Obama's possible divided loyalties since he has strenuously and vigorously fought every request and every legal effort to force him to release his original birth certificate for public review and scrutiny. I think that is significant."
On Oct 24, Georgia Superior Court Judge Jerry W. Baxter denied Terry's request for an injunction against Secretary of State Karen Handel.
"I don't think you have standing to bring this suit," he said. "I think that the attorney general has argued the law. I think he is correct. I think you are not a lawyer."
Terry is appealing his suit even though Obama didn't win Georgia because he said he wants to set an example for other states. He is asking the court to direct Georgia Secretary of State Karen Handel to decertify all votes for Obama.
"Hopefully, this action will be noticed by other states and they will also take a serious look at the meaning of Georgia's Supreme Court's actions," he said. "It is apropos that the Latin motto in the Georgia Supreme Court is interpreted: 'Let justice be done, though the heavens fall.' I think if the Court rules in my favor, that motto will come alive with meaning and impact."
On Oct. 17, Andy Martin filed a writ of mandamus in Hawaii's Supreme Court to compel Gov. Linda Lingle to release a certified copy of Obama's vital statistics record. His request to expedite the circuit court was denied on Oct. 22.
Martin now has a pending case seeking access to Obama's original 1961 typewritten birth certificate. The circuit court hearing is set to begin Nov. 18.
The saga continues …
Several unconfirmed reports also indicate that citizens of Utah, Wyoming, Florida, New York, North Carolina, Texas, California and Virginia have also filed lawsuits or requested court orders to verify Obama's citizenship status.
As reported earlier, WND senior investigative reporter Jerome Corsi traveled both to Kenya and Hawaii to investigate issues surrounding Obama's birth.
But his discoveries only raised more questions.
The governor's office in Hawaii said he had a valid certificate but rejected requests for access and left ambiguous its origin – leaving some to wonder if the certificate on file with the Department of Health indicates a Hawaiian birth or whether it was generated after the Obama family registered a Kenyan birth in Hawaii.
The Obama campaign posted a certification of live birth, a document stating the baby was born on Aug. 4, 1961. However, according to the Department of Hawaiian Home Lands, there is a difference between the two documents. A certification of live birth is not an authentication of Hawaiian birth, and critics say the procedure could have allowed Obama's mother to have the baby elsewhere, return to the U.S. and obtain the document in Hawaii.
The Department of Hawaiian Home Lands makes a distinction between the two:
In order to process your application, DHHL utilizes information that is found only on the original Certificate of Live Birth, which is either black or green. This is a more complete record of your birth than the Certification of Live Birth (a computer-generated printout). Submitting the original Certificate of Live Birth will save you time and money since the computer-generated Certification requires additional verification by DHHL.
However, Andy Martin has specifically requested verification of the original 1961 type-written certificate of live birth – or, as the Department of Hawaiian Home Lands describes it, the "more complete record" of Obama's birth.
Further adding to complications, Obama's half-sister, Maya Soetoro, has named two different Hawaii hospitals where Obama could have been born. In a November 2004 interview with the Rainbow Newsletter, Maya told reporters her half-brother Sen. Barack Obama was born on Aug. 4, 1961, at Queens Medical Center in Honolulu; then in February 2008, Maya told reporters for the Honolulu Star-Bulletin that Obama was at the Kapiolani Medical Center for Women and Children.
But a video posted on YouTube features Obama's Kenyan grandmother Sarah claiming to have witnessed Obama's birth in Kenya.
Seeking to settle the issue, Hawaii Department of Health Director Director Chiyome Fukino released an Oct. 31 statement saying, "State law (Hawai'i Revised Statutes §338-18) prohibits the release of a certified birth certificate to persons who do not have a tangible interest in the vital record. Therefore, I as Director of Health for the State of Hawai'i, along with the Registrar of Vital Statistics who has statutory authority to oversee and maintain these type of vital records, have personally seen and verified that the Hawai'i State Department of Health has Sen. Obama's original birth certificate on record in accordance with state policies and procedures."
The statement does not clarify whether "the record" is a certification of live birth or a Hawaiian certificate of live birth.
Before the election, WND retained a top private investigator in Hawaii with extensive FBI training and tasked him with visiting both the Queens Medical Center and the Kaliolani Medical Center to investigate claims that Obama birth certificates existed at either hospital.
However, the private investigator reported that sheriff's deputies were stationed at both hospitals to fend off press inquiries about Obama's birth certificate.
When WND asked the Obama campaign spokeswoman why Obama simply hasn't released the original 1961 certificate of live birth to make the lawsuits go away, she replied, "I have no idea. I think they released what they chose to release, and Hawaii has confirmed that he was born in Hawaii, so I don't know what else you want."

UPDATE 5: Obama’s Trip to Hawaii to ‘Visit Grandma’ is really to fight the suit
October 29th, 2008
Andy Martin recently filed suit in Hawaii demanding that the State turn over Obama’s Birth Certificate, His claim is that Obama is really in Hawaii to fight the suit.
Source Israel Insider ”Barack H. Obama II has suspended his involvement in his campaign for at least two days to go to Hawaii, purportedly to visit his ailing grandmother.
But the sudden trip to the 50th state coincides with an aggressive campaign by Obama nemesis Andy Martin to legally compel Hawaiian authorities to release birth records that Obama has refused to make public. And, in a separate Federal Circuit Court case filed by Philip Berg in Pennsylvania to force Obama and the Democratic National Committee to prove that the candidate is in fact a ”natural born citizen,” Obama and the DNC have failed to respond within a federally-mandated 30 day period, opening the door to a procedural argument that failure to respond represents an admission of the plaintiff’s claims that the Democratic nominee is a Kenyan and/or Indonesian citizen, but not a ”natural born” citizen of the United States.
The sudden Obama decision to visit Hawaii has triggered broad skepticism, coming as it does in the critical last two week of the close election campaign. Obama’s 85-year-old maternal grandmother, Madelyn Dunham, was first brought into the campaign when he sought to show that she, as a ”typical white woman”, held what the candidate claimed were racist fears of aggressive black men. He brought her up in the context of saying that he could not disown her — despite her alleged racism — any more than he could disown his pastor of twenty years, Jeremiah Wright. Obama visited her only very briefly during his summer vacation in Hawaii, and he didn’t visit her when she was in a Honolulu hospital last week. There is no indication that her condition is life-threatening.
But Andy Martin, an anti-Obama columnist, says the real reason for Obama’s emergency trip is to stop his own pursuit of birth records, including an emergency writ to the Hawaii Supreme Court to request expedited handling after a previous filing to demand that the State’s Department of Health release the records. ”Obama did not pay any attention to his grandmother until I showed up in Honolulu,” he wrote in an email. ”Suddenly she is the center of his attention. She is so central to his campaign that he has suspended it! But when Obama was here last summer he only visited his grandmother for an hour. One hour! Now he suspends his campaign for her?”
The Berg-initiated legal action is also pressing the Obama campaign. On September 15, as part of his federal lawsuit contending that the Illinois senator is ineligible, pursuant to the U.S. Constitution, to serve as president of the United States, Philadelphia attorney Philip Berg served Barack Obama and the Democratic National Committee with a request for admission, which, on October 6, Barack Obama and the DNC acknowledged getting but then attempted to persuade the court to stay discovery and to dismiss the suit. However, Federal Rules require that a response to a request for admissions be served within the 30-day time limit, and Barack Obama and the DNC have not done so.
Therefore, this morning, Berg is filing two motions in district court in Philadelphia: a motion requesting an immediate order deeming his request for admissions served upon Barack Obama and the DNC on September 15 admitted by default, and a motion requesting an expedited ruling and/or hearing on Bergs motion deeming the request for admissions served upon Obama and the DNC admitted. Berg contends that the failure to respond and serve the response within the time limit is ”damning.”
”They did not file answers or objections or anything else to the request for admissions we served upon them on September 15,” Berg said. ”They knew the admissions were due. They knew they must object or answer specifically in 30 days. Here, they did nothing.”
The admissions that Berg asserts Barack Obama and the DNC have, at least procedurally, admitted to, include the following:
-Admit you were born in Kenya .
-Admit you are a Kenya ”natural born” citizen.
-Admit your foreign birth was registered in the State of Hawaii .
-Admit your father, Barrack Hussein Obama, Sr., admitted Paternity of you.
-Admit your mother gave birth to you in Mombasa , Kenya .
-Admit your mother’s maiden name is Stanley Ann Dunham a/k/a Ann Dunham.
-Admit the COLB [Certification of Live Birth] posted on the website ”Fightthesmears.com” is a forgery.
-Admit you were adopted by a Foreign Citizen.
-Admit you were adopted by Lolo Soetoro, M.A. a citizen of Indonesia .
-Admit you were not born in Hawaii .
-Admit you are a citizen of Indonesia .
-Admit you never took the ”Oath of Allegiance” to regain your U.S. Citizenship status.
-Admit you are not a ”natural born” United States citizen.
-Admit your senior campaign staff is aware you are not a ”natural born” United States Citizen.
-Admit the United States Constitution does not allow for a Person to hold the office of President of the United States unless that person is a ”natural born” United States citizen.
-Admit you are ineligible pursuant to the United States Constitution to serve as President and/or Vice President of the United States.
It is not at all clear that the actions by Berg in Federal court and Martin in Hawaii will be ruled on before the election, but both men have vowed to pursue their cases even after the election if necessary. Berg has said that he would drop his case if Obama simply provides documentary proof of his birth, but to date the candidate has not done so, instead releasing only images of a purported ”certification of live birth” to the partisan Daily Kos blog and the sympathetic FactCheck web site.

Barack Obama's grandmother, whose personality and bearing shaped much of the life of the Democratic presidential contender, has died, Obama announced Monday, one day before the election.

Madelyn Payne Dunham was 86. Obama announced the news from the campaign trail in North Carolina. The joint statement with his sister Maya Soetoro-Ng said Dunham died peacefully late Sunday night after a battle with cancer.

They said: "She was the cornerstone of our family, and a woman of extraordinary accomplishment, strength, and humility. She was the person who encouraged and allowed us to take chances."

Obama learned of her death Monday morning while he was campaigning in Jacksonville, Fla. He planned to go ahead with campaign appearances. The family said a private ceremony would be held later.

Republican John McCain issued condolences to his opponent. "Our thoughts and prayers go out to them as they remember and celebrate the life of someone who had such a profound impact in their lives," the statement by John and Cindy McCain said.

Last month, Obama took a break from campaigning and flew to Hawaii to be with Dunham as her health declined.

Obama said the decision to go to Hawaii was easy to make, telling CBS that he "got there too late" when his mother died of ovarian cancer in 1995 at 53, and wanted to make sure "that I don't make the same mistake twice."

The Kansas-born Dunham and her husband, Stanley, raised their grandson for several years so he could attend school in Honolulu while their daughter and her second husband lived overseas. Her influence on Obama's manner and the way he viewed the world was substantial, the candidate himself told millions watching him accept his party's nomination in Denver in August.

"She's the one who taught me about hard work," he said. "She's the one who put off buying a new car or a new dress for herself so that I could have a better life. She poured everything she had into me."

Obama's nickname for his grandmother was "Toot," a version of the Hawaiian word for grandmother, tutu. Many of his speeches describe her working on a bomber assembly line during World War II.

Madelyn and Stanley Dunham married in 1940, a few weeks before she graduated from high school. Their daughter, Stanley Ann, was born in 1942. After several moves to and from California, Texas, Washington and Kansas, Stanley Dunham's job landed the family in Hawaii.

It was there that Stanley Ann later met and fell in love with Obama's father, a Kenyan named Barack Hussein Obama Sr. They had met in Russian class at the University of Hawaii. Their son was born in August 1961, but the marriage didn't last long. She later married an Indonesian, Lolo Soetoro, another university student she met in Hawaii.

Obama moved to Indonesia with his mother and stepfather at age 6. But in 1971, her mother sent him back to Hawaii to live with her parents. He stayed with the Dunhams until he graduated from high school in 1979.

In his autobiography, Obama wrote fondly of playing basketball on a court below his grandparents' 10th-floor Honolulu apartment, and looking up to see his grandmother watching.

It was the same apartment Obama visited on annual holiday trips to Hawaii, a weeklong vacation from his campaign in August, and his pre-election visit in October. Family members said his grandmother could not travel because of her health.

Madelyn Dunham, who took university classes but to her chagrin never earned a degree, nonetheless rose from a secretarial job at the Bank of Hawaii to become one of the state's first female bank vice presidents.

"Every morning, she woke up at 5 a.m. and changed from the frowsy muumuus she wore around the apartment into a tailored suit and high-heeled pumps," Obama wrote.

After her health took a turn for the worse, her brother said on Oct. 21 that she had already lived long enough to see her "Barry" achieve what she'd wanted for him.

"I think she thinks she was important in raising a fine young man," Charles Payne, 83, said in a brief telephone interview from his Chicago home. "I doubt if it would occur to her that he would go this far this fast. But she's enjoyed watching it."

Stanley Dunham died in 1992, while Obama's mother died in 1995. His father is also deceased.

When Obama was young, he and his grandmother toured the United States by Greyhound bus, stopping at the Grand Canyon, Yellowstone Park, Disneyland and Chicago, where Obama would years later settle.

It was an incident during his teenage years that became one of Obama's most vivid memories of Toot. She had been aggressively panhandled by a man and she wanted her husband to take her to work. When Obama asked why, his grandfather said Madelyn Dunham was bothered because the panhandler was black.

The words hit the biracial Obama "like a fist in my stomach," he wrote later. He was sure his grandparents loved him deeply. "And yet," he added, "I knew that men who might easily have been my brothers could still inspire their rawest fears."

Obama referred to the incident again when he addressed race in a speech in March during a controversy over his former pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright. "I can no more disown him than I can my white grandmother," he said.

Dunham was "a woman who loves me as much as she loves anything in this world but who once confessed her fear of black men who passed her on the street."

Still, much of who Obama is comes from his grandmother, said his half sister.

"From our grandmother, he gets his pragmatism, his levelheadedness, his ability to stay centered in the eye of the story," she told The Associated Press. "His sensible, no-nonsense (side) is inherited from her."

Madelyn Lee Payne was born to Rolla and Leona Payne in October, 1922, in Peru, Kan., but lived much of her childhood in nearby Augusta.

She was the oldest of four children, and she loved to read everything from James Hilton's "Lost Horizon" to Agatha Christie's "The Murder of Roger Ackroyd."

Dunham and her husband were "vicious" bridge players, according to her brother Jack. After retirement, the two of them would take island cruises and do little but play bridge and a more difficult version called duplicate bridge.

DO YOU SEE WHAT HE DID?????? He had all of America believing that out of the goodness of his heart he was visiting his grandmother when in reality he was in Hawaii for his court hearing!!!!!!!!!!! The question that I have is this. Is his grandmother still alive?? If she did die, did he have her killed for the perfect excuse to go to Hawaii for just two days making the American people think he is caring enough to leave his campaign for moral purposes!!!. If I loved a family member as much as he says he loved his grandmother then I certainly would visit more then just two days and the time spent would be with and for that person and no time would be spent going to court for my own personal agenda!!!!! He always makes things seem good when in fact it is very, very evil!!!!
We must watch the curve balls very carefully and not allow us to be distracted by all of them. He has caused the media to spread so much news in so many different directions that no one can keep their eye on the ball that he is really throwing at us. We must stay focused at his true agenda and possess the capability of seeing right through the smoke screens that he creates to blind us. If we cannot learn to do this very soon, and with unity, then the Christians, Jews, Buddist and anyone not believing in Islam will be in very big immediate trouble. This trouble will be more severe then just the economic pressures that we all are facing now and in the future!!!! I have a plan to hit every curve ball that he is throwing. Mr Keyes and I must talk as soon as possible.

Obama’s Plan

I was watching Glenn Beck this evening and seen that he had a guest on that was on his show last week. The guest was a doctor that had started a plan for people to have affordable health care. All he required was a $79.00 monthly fee for his medical services including prescriptions. He was on Glenn’s show last week and said that the government had shut him down. This evening he was on Glenn Beck’s show again and said that after being on the Glenn beck show the first time the government had came to him and told him that he could operate again. The string attached for allowing him to operate again is that if the patient was sick he had to charge an additional $33.00 fee claiming that $79.00 was not enough to cover administration fees. The doctor does not want to charge these fees but is forced to by our government.
I can see as plain as day what Obama is up to. The last couple of nights Bill Clinton had been on the news talking up national health care. A man has come up with a good plan that makes sense but our government makes him charge more for sick patients for additional administration fees. Now think about this situation. When this health plan comes about there will be this wonderful chip that will eliminate this additional fee saving the taxpayer millions upon millions of dollars. It will also be said to save lives because precious time will be saved in a emergency situation. Obama and Clinton are talking this national health care up so people will be not only be willing but wanting to accept it, along with this verichip installation (while keeping his real final goal hidden). Our government wants a doctor to charge more because when this health care comes into affect there is the perfect excuse to have the verichip installed under the skin of everyone that is in the plan. It will eventually be mandatory for everyone. WHY??????? With this chip installed it will not have just your medical records in it but will also have your entire life history in it along with a GPS to track you and will also give the government total control of all of your finances and purchases.
This is why Obama has been throwing out all of these diversions. It is to keep people from figuring out exactly what he is up to. His ultimate goal is to have total control of this nation, all for the sake of Islam!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The black people must know that Islam does not recognize the color of skin. Obama has used them for his own personal agenda!!!!!!
We must stop the national control system. Americans (of all color, black, white, red and yellow) need our freedom!!!!

Q. Does the government want to chip the public?
To the best of our knowledge, no sitting member of the United States government has seriously suggested chipping members of the public. However, at least two high-ranking government-related individuals have discussed chipping, and that's cause for concern.
The first is Tommy Thompson, former Secretary of Health and Human Services and 2008 presidential candidate. Thompson was a member of the board of directors of VeriChip until March 2007, and was in charge of the FDA when it approved the VeriChip for medical purposes in 2004. In public appearances, Thompson has suggested injecting microchips into Americans to link to their electronic medical records. "It's very beneficial and it's going to be extremely helpful and it's a giant step forward to getting what we call an electronic medical record for all Americans," he told CBS MarketWatch in July 2005.
A transcript of Thompson's entire CBS MarketWatch interview is available at
A writeup of Thompson's chipping statements is available at
The second government official to discuss chipping is U.S. Senator Joe Biden, who made this unnerving comment to Justice John Roberts during his Supreme Court Confirmation hearings on September 12, 2005:

I don't know and don't think Americans would EVER accept the idea of a chip being installed on them.

It is a fact of history, however, that the Great Depression was prolonged when the FDR administration required various industries and businesses to set prices and then actually put people in jail for offering goods and services below that price!
