Obama will Resign and for Good Reason


By Alan Caruba

I always thought it was creepy the way Barack Hussein Obama has repeatedly referred to the likelihood of his being a one-term President. It is as if he knew, even as he campaigned in 2008, that all the loose ends and unanswered questions about his life would eventually disqualify him.

It is now widely acknowledged that the mainstream media ran interference for him, ignoring or disparaging those who questioned his eligibility. After two and a half years in office, however, his arrogance and incompetence is so manifest that even they can no longer cover for him.

Obama has single handedly generated a mass political movement called the Tea Party and election results for governors and members of Congress have put opposition candidates into office.

On March 31, 1968, then-President Lyndon B. Johnson announced that he would not run for reelection, responding to the massive opposition to the war in Vietnam. On August 9, 1974, Richard M. Nixon announced his resignation in the wake of the Watergate scandal to avoid impeachment.

I predict that Barack Hussein Obama will resign before the end of his first term. He may well do so prior to the September 2012 Democratic Party convention.

Obama was never eligible to run for the office. In his book, “Where’s the Birth Certificate? The Case that Barack Obama is Not Eligible to be President”, Dr. Jerome R. Corsi, Phd, devotes 387 pages, complete with appendices and endnotes, to irrefutably make that case.

Anyone who reads Article 2, Section 1, of the Constitution, however, can make that case in less than a minute. Only a “natural born” individual whose both parents were American citizens can be President. Obama’s father was a citizen of Kenya. There is no dispute regarding what the Founders meant when they said “natural born.” Further clouding Obama’s eligibility is the time he spent in his youth in Indonesia as the adopted son of that nation’s nationality.

Corsi’s book explores all the other mysteries including a highly suspicious Social Security number, passports, and other documentation that any candidate for office would normally submit to public disclosure. A massive cover up that includes the national press corps, the Democratic Party, Congress and even the U.S. courts, permitted Obama to gain and hold the office.

Indeed, Corsi’s book is not the first to reveal the deceptions. At least three other books have meticulously examined the issue. They include “The Manchurian President” by Aaron Klein with Brenda J. Elliot, “The Blueprint: Obama’s Plan to Subvert the Constitution and Build an Imperial Presidency” by Ken Blackwell and Ken Klukowski, and “The Post-American Presidency” by Pamela Geller with Robert Spencer.

Corsi, however, has the benefit of timing. As the nation enters the period following Obama’s announcement he is running for reelection and during the process of selecting a Republican opponent, the issue of his eligibility is gathering momentum.

The polling data is all against him. The failure of his policies, combined with the massive increase in the national debt, rising unemployment, the implosion of the housing market, and a growing perception of incompetence, are coalescing to give weight to the demand that he end his candidacy or resign.

“History has not been kind to U.S. Presidents that have attempted to hide behind a lie,” says Corsi.

When republics begin to ignore their founding documents, they are literally committing suicide and, in Obama’s case, it is an assisted suicide.

The recognized definition of a “natural born citizen”, a requirement to be President, does not require much more than common sense. In a May article published by Canada Free Press, Lawrence B. Solum, the John E. Cribbett Professor of Law at the University of Illinois College of Law, is quoted as having written in September 2008, “Anyone born on American soil whose parents are citizens of the United States is a natural born citizen.”

Ironically, in 2008, his political opponent, Sen. John McCain, whose both parents were Americans when he was born in the Panama Canal Zone, was the subject of a Senate Resolution confirming his eligibility to run. The then-Democrat controlled Senate took up no such action regarding Obama. If they had, they would have had to hold a convention to pick a new candidate!

Lawrence Sellin, the author of the Canada Free Press article cited above, warned “Whether through cowardice or arrogance, both Republican and Democrats fail to appreciate the fact that ordinary Americans are reaching a tipping point. Imagine a Tea Party on steroids.”

“If the Constitutional crisis is not soon addressed, the present political polarization will inevitably lead to political fragmentation. Erosion of the Constitution will inevitably lead to the collapse of the rule of law.”

There is no documentation to support the myths about his life that Obama has carefully devised. Indeed, the President has reportedly spent millions to deny public access to his birth certificate and all other records.

If he resigns, he may be able to assert the legitimacy of every piece of legislation, every executive order, signed into law, but if he is found to have been ineligible, every one of them would become null and void.

The nation can be put right again as a Constitutional Republic. Obama has led an unlawful regime. America has been drunk on socialism since the 1930s. It’s time to sober up.

This is hilarious, and I will enjoy reminding you of it when you are wrong, Caruba.

While resigning would be the honorable thing for him to do (with him and many other politicians in D.C.), I don't see it happening. Too much arrogance typical of the progressive mindset.
Nixon would have hung on longer had he not been told flat out that he'd lost the support of the Congressional Republicans.
Short of a complete loss of Democratic support in the House and Senate, I think Oblahma will try for a second term.

@AD: We shall see who has the last laugh.

In the meantime, read Corsi's book.

I'd love it if Obama resigned. The day he did would be a fine, fine day indeed. They would probably be rioting in the Democratic stronghold cities, but personally, I'd be having a big party here....

Gustav said...

I enjoy hearing your prediction, and I hope you're right. The wrong of this presidency should be righted.

Interestingly, though, I don't think Obama's official actions would be nullified by a finding of his ineligibility. The following passage surprised and fascinated me when I read it in a legal case a couple years ago:

"The de facto officer doctrine confers validity upon acts performed by a person acting under the color of official title even though it is later discovered that the legality of that person's appointment or election to office is deficient." Ryder v. United States, 515 U.S. 177, 180, 115 S.Ct. 2031, 132 L.Ed.2d 136 (1995).

As much as I wish he would leave, it would be a hollow victory. As I see it, there is no true opposition party. Obama's policies, and the overreach of the Democrats when in power, only serve to illuminate a serious rift in the electorate. If a principled opposition fails to make a case for some form of constitutionalism, Obama's resignation would be a hollow victory. A return of the insanity would lie dormant until there is a falling out with the Republicans. The attack on the fundamentals of this Republic is on such a broad scale as to almost make it incomprehensible. I haven't lost hope, but much repair needs to occur to safeguard our liberties.

Ok, now here is where it gets complicated: If he is not eligible to be POTUS, then he is a non-Potus POTUS, right? Now, how do you quit that which you are not? How does an illegal userper POTUS quit? I reminds me of a line from Broke Back Mountain, "I just wanna quit you but I don't know how."

IF they haul him off to Gitmo, can he resign by Autopen? Or can Autopen do this for him via Autodesk (a computer program of the 1970s)? Can Teleprompter just tweet his non-resignation speech along the screen and make non-POTUS as obsolete as a bank teller? It would be the ultimate revenge by the ATMs of the world for declaring that they are the cause of the non-recovery.

It would be the best econmic stimulus package ever!

@Alan:

Hmmm?

Very interesting article, O Grand Master of Them That Know Things Political.

I never considered the resignation option in regards to Fearless Leader Obama, the Red Terror of the golf course, but you may be on to something, as was the case in Weinergate, a good Democommie will sometimes fall on his sword for the greater good of International Socialism.

After all, comrade, the individual is nothing; the collective is everything!

AD, I'm embarrassed by your ignorance. You voted for Obama didn't you?

"This is hilarious, and I will enjoy reminding you of it when you are wrong, Caruba." Maybe its an issue of grammar. When Mr. Caruba is wrong? Which he is not. And this whole situation is far from "hilarious." We currently have a sitting President of the United States, who by silent (and not so silent) consent, was vetted by every one of the 535 then sitting members of both houses of the US Congress. A president who has not only done nothing to prove his eligibility, but has spent time, energy and not insignificant amounts of treasure to hide the fact that he is ineligible. Finally, a couple months ago, his administration releases a .pdf image of his alleged long form birth certificate. And in regards to that birth certificate, I say look past the allegations that it was made with Photoshop or Illustrator, or that it has typeface or data inconsistencies throughout. Why would this administration spend 2 years
rebuffing attempts to see the long-form birth certificate only to suddenly release it recently in a "see, we told you it was real, now shut up, serfs" kind of way?

Folks, in addition to these comments here, there's a slew of them over at CanadaFreePress and my email inbox continues to fill up with mostly positive responses to the commentary and the requisite "obamarobots."

Thank you all!

Alan,

While I fully agree with your basic premise, I have to think that this clown would never resign no matter what the circumstances. This is something that goes beyond his arrogance or his sheer disdain for the laws of this great land. The fact is that this guy is above all of us mere mortals, at least he feels that way. The law doesn't mean anything to him because he truly believes it doesn't apply to him. Most "Legends in Their Own Minds" believe thus. They are deities and will be treated as such.

The man won't resign. Most megalomaniacs like him are way too blind to their own mortality in any way.

Jimmy "The Torch" said...

You are so on the nails with this Allen, I love the comments of the delusional ones on the left. If he doesn't resign he will be impeached by his own party leading the charge in a bipartisan manner. It's all about power, the 23 D senators up for election have targets on their backs, they have not forgotten their fallen comrades from the 2010 blood bath. I've been telling my readers the same thing for the past 8 months.

Conway said...

If Obama does resign I will concede that there is hope for this dying mess, but I think the odds against that narcissistic megalomaniac actually doing so are in the neighborhood of a million to one.

As the representative of the republican revolutionist faction on this website, let me say that stupid Leftist character assassins like AD remind me of the degenerate French aristocracy just before 1789, who really believed that simply because their parasite class had existed for hundreds of years in the past, they would continue to exist for hundreds of years in the future.

Then came revolution.

The American Left prays for revolution, and their more honest members give voice on this issue almost daily to the Media while their Storm Trooper union thugs seize control of state capitol buildings.

The Leftists may live to see their prayers answered. They may, indeed, light the fuse that blows the country apart in warring factions fighting for control of ruined cities.

If the Left starts a revolution they very likely will not enjoy their ultimate fate at the hands outraged Patriots searching for those responsible for America's troubles.

Because of the eseentially moral basis of Judeo-Christian civilisations, based as they are on the Gospels and the Mosaic Decalogue, people in these societies instinctively want to do "good" and be "seen to do good". The essentially wicked and corrupt nature of socialism cunningly and on purpose makes essentially good people play into the hands of socialists and corruptors.

That's why Anglosphere nations _continue_ , year after year, and decade after decade, and election after election, to elect GramscoStaliNazis, and thus to voluntarily rub their own noses in the destructive poo of GramscoStaliNazism.

GramscoStaliNazism is socialism. It was deliberately devied as a strategic option to undermine and then destroy Western liberal classical nations. The Fabians (who shamefully are British, and thus should know better by definition) knew that liberal Western democracies and Republics could not be brouhgt down by violent revolution from outside or within, for their people were not naturally-revolting-people such as Russian, French, Southern Europeans of various kinds, or even Germans (at a push, which was triggered in November 1918.)

The Fabians realised that they would have to "boil the frog very very slowly" and it would take decades. They are well on the way to achieving their goal in the UK, indeed they are now within sight of it. And the USA is fast tumbling down into the same cesspool if it is not careful. Really, Americans should forcibly clean out the Beltway and multitudinous districts inside your major cities, and start again. Revolution may indeed have to be an option.
