Why Obama Should Not Be Allowed to Take the Oath of Office Again

By Alan Caruba

If anyone had read any of the many books that have examined President Obama’s life and his many questionable qualifications for office, including a Social Security number that appears to have been purloined from someone else, he should not be allowed to take the oath of office for a second time.

Here are just some of the books I have received and read over the first four years of his disastrous first term:

The Obama Nation by Jerome Corsi

Where’s the Birth Certificate? By Jerome Corsi

Deconstructing Obama by Jack Cashill

The Blueprint: Obama’s Plan to Subvert the Constitution
 And Build an Imperial Presidency by Ken Blackwell & Ken Klukowski

The Post-American Presidency by Pamela Geller with Robert Spencer

The Audacity of Deceit: Barack Obama’s War on American values by Brad O’Leary

The Communist: Frank Marshall Davis, The Untold Story of Barack Obama by Paul Kengor

The Manchurian Candidate by Aaron Klein

An American Obsession: Race and Conflict in the Age of Obama by Seth A. Forman

If only one half or one quarter of the facts cited in these books were true, Obama has no legal right to be President and is committed to an ideology that seeks to undermine capitalism. He is set to take the oath of office a second time.
Few of these books received any of the attention they deserve in the mainstream media and all of the authors are at risk of being whisked off to jail as enemies of the state if the Bill of Rights continues to be eroded and ignored by the Obama administration.

To those who deride the “birthers” who have raised issues about his eligibility, Larry Klayman of Freedom Watch notes that “Even if born in America, Obama does not quality as a ‘natural born citizen’ under our Constitution, since he was not, as also required under our law to be president, sired by two American born parents. Only his mother was an American at the time of birth.”

Historians will look back at his first term and wonder how 51% of the voters reelected Obama when he added $6 trillion to the national debt (more than all Presidents who preceded him combined.) They will wonder how he got reelected in a nation with more than 26 million unemployed and 47 million on food stamps and other “safety net” programs including 99 weeks of unemployment checks.

They will wonder how his opponent promised to repeal Obamacare was defeated when many states have refused to set up the “exchanges” the law requires be created. Health insurance premiums will increase 25% to 30% on January 1, 2013. At the same time employers of more than 50 people will put most of them in a part-time status to avoid the increase to the cost of doing business, guaranteeing less work and less pay.

I recently received an email from Dr. Orly Taitz, an attorney who has filed many law suits alleging that Obama used “forged IDs, forged short form birth certificate, forged long form birth certificate, forged Selected Service certificate and fraudulently obtained Connecticut Social Security number, which Obama is using in his tax returns and which was never assigned to him according to e-verify."

Any one of these charges should have been sufficient to keep Obama from taking his first oath of office and should foreclose any opportunity for a second one. If true, they nullify the forthcoming Electoral College decision regarding his right to be declared the winner of the 2012 elections.

This goes way beyond stuffing ballot boxes to steal an election. It is fraud that nullifies the Constitutional requirements--the laws-- governing who may hold the highest office in the land.

We must also ask why there has been the failure or refusal of many elements of the nation’s judicial system to respond to the law suits, often declaring that the parties filing them have “no standing” before the courts to allege that Obama has defrauded Americans in order to be elected. Dr. Taitz’s release noted that Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy is set to rule on one such case just six days before the Electoral College meets.

We are taught in schools that America is a “nation of laws, not of men," but this attack on our laws, aided and abetted by the Democratic Party that nominated Obama, is the most severe attack on the Constitution in modern times.

If Barack Hussein Obama is permitted to take the oath of office in the face of the documentation offered in the books cited above and the clear language of the U.S. Constitution, it will mark the end of the efficacy of law in America.

Please refresh my memory concerning the Constitution about "natural-born-citizen". You listed that the POTUS must be born of two American citizens. Forgive me for not researching before I post, but it just doesn't ring a bell. You said, even if he was born in America, he still doesn't qualify. I am seriously not following your argument.

You are telling me that the Terminator of California can be Governor and Madam Albright can be Secretary of State, but the biracial boy from Hawaii does not meet the Constitutional requirements.

I can't even bring up the Hatch Amendment because it is not relevant to the inquiry into Obama's citizenship.

Please explain your understanding of 'natural-born-citizen'. Please.

No Alan, I'm afraid historians will look back at this period in history and readily conclude that Obama bought the election by spending $6 trillion dollars of OUR money on bribes and handouts. Simply put, his faithful constituents were paid for their votes, and the rest of us were left holding the bag.

It's sickening...

The fix is in for now.

The American Elites will have their constitution destroying Bolshevik president for the next four years (or for life) unless We The People mount a ruling class destroying Second American Revolution (SAR).

The main problem is that the SAR will not happen unless the American People get off their apathy, which they have no signs of doing at the current time, and are fat, dumb and happy with 144 channels of cable television.

However, when they look mass homelessness, poverty, starvation and oppression dead in the eye, the situation will change over night, and those hidden weapons will see the light of day.

The hungry belly, anger and desperation is the proven revolution maker, as the happy, secure, well housed, well fed, and educated middle class American is a very poor revolutionist.

Therefore, The worse it gets, the better for patriots and the SAR.

Obama was elected by a majority of the American people in a freely contested election. There is no claim of wide-spread fraud or intimidation.

The only way to prevent his re-inauguration would be by revolution or coup. And what would you get? A junta? How long would a junta tolerate the Bill of Rights, especially when it would be opposed by numerous lefties (many armed) and the media?

Hunker down for four years and try again, this time with a serious candidate.

We will probably lose again. A clear majority of the American people want socialism (but not by that name) because they benefit from it personally.

On another note, I hear that Madam Hillary Clinton will not be able to testify next week before House and Senate panels on the Benghazi issue because she fell and sustained a concussion.
How did she fall?
She probably caught a good look at her hair-do in the mirror!

Alan Caruba said...

Mrs. Night Owl, please take 20 minutes to read the Constitution. It states that to be president both parents must be American citizens. Obama's father was not.

Eddy said...

I have always considered myself to be a man of law and order. But if there are too many laws that nobody can keep track off and that are imposed and created by unelected functionaries, who even have their own swat teams to enforce their vision of society, then it is clear that we are no longer a democracy but a fascist state. It is also typical for a fascist state that important aspects of a moral society are no longer enforced but ideological ideas of the state are enforced with a vengeance. Sounds familiar? A this time the US has come to a state where the conservatives have to step back and step aside and let society slide where it will slide. In the mean time we conservatives have to restart our "march through the institutions" (from kindergarten to college to entertainment to Hollywood) just like the liberals have done since the 60s. And of course, hunker down, cause it is going to get a lot worse before it gets better..

@ Mr. Night Owl & @Alan Caruba: I'm not certain of it, but I read up on the issue of the "Natural Born Citizen" clause in the US Constitution before the 2008 election and I believe what I read those four years back basically stated that it was interpreted by the SCOTUS in a ruling years after the founding of our country that the term "Natural Born Citizen" should be taken to mean both born on US Soil and also both parents being American Citizens. So it is not specifically stated in the constitution, but the precedence of SCOTUS rulings is the basis of the "two US citizen parents" rule.

Now, in reference to Eddy's comment at the bottom:

"Who is John Gault?"

Mrs. Night Owl said...

It was said that democracy is two wolves and a sheep deciding what to eat for lunch. Well, nobody wants to be the sheep, which is why the Constitution has to be interpreted with the spirit of truth, otherwise everybody's feelings become law. The system of voting is democratic, and we only argue the case when our political messiah or party doesn't get the votes - this election we are calling it socialism. Why is it so hard to come together as a country? Why is it one party or the other? Are we so arrogant to think that our point of view is the only one that matters? America traded one tyranny for another.

Eddy said...

@Roger: we are!!

Roger Engle said...

@ Eddy - Exactly!

Obama was indeed born in Hawaii, as has been proven overwhelmingly by his birth certificate and the confirmation of the officials of BOTH parties in Hawaii and the Index Data file and the birth notices sent to the Hawaii newspapers by the DOH of Hawaii in 1961 (and only the DOH could send notices to the "Health Bureau Statistics" section of the paper, and the DOH of Hawaii only sent out notices for births IN Hawaii).

And, the US Supreme Court ruled in the Wong Kim Ark case (which btw was AFTER Minor v. Happersett) that the meaning of Natural Born comes from the common law and refers to the PLACE of birth, and that hence every child born in the USA except for the children of foreign diplomats is a Natural Born US Citizen.

More reading on the Natural Born Citizenship issue:


Alan Caruba said...

@smrstraus: No one, including myself is saying Obama was not born in Hawaii. We are saying he was not born to two American citizens, the definition of a Natural Born Citizen. His father was from Kenya, at that time a colony of the British Empire.

It has also been credibly suggested that he gave up US citizenship or claimed foreign student status in order to matriculate into college.

It has also been credibly suggested that he used Indonesian foreign student status to matriculate into college.

Alan Caruba said...

@smrstrauss. You may have noticed that I am not posting your comments any more. You have had your say, now go away.

Mrs. Night Owl said...


You have wonderful topics that encourage discussion!
So, why do you allow public access to your blog and comments, but then tell people to go away?
If people are unkind and rude, by all means, but are you keeping dissenting opinions on a tight leash?
Do you only want to hear from like-minded people?

Alan Caruba said...

Mrs. Night Owl, once a person has made their point, returning to it over and over again is tiresome.
